"We and of course, the wounds and tourists. So it's just gone into Gemini. So with the moon in Gemini it's in a square to the sun. Again, lots of ideas and new things coming in on that one. And we have a Juno eris conjunction. Now errors, of course, the goddess of Discord is meeting up with Juno. Partnerships. This is contention in relationships. And, you know, it happens every few years. Juno is one of the asteroids asteroids take between four and 6 years to go around the asteroid belt, which is the section of sky between Mars and Jupiter. But when Juno meets up with errors, remember Juno was the jealous wife. She used to follow him around her husband around him when he'd be fooling around. She did not take it out on the husband. She took a woman who was fooling around with her man. So this is a really interesting aspect. So we're going to watch for women being really mad or really seeking vengeance. So I'm kind of like, look at all those planets and Aries. So we know this is kind of a contentious little puppy. We also see Saturn and Pluto here, kind of in what we call a semi sextile. So while Jupiter had the quintile, on Sunday, Saturn has a sex tile on Tuesday. So he's saying consequences for actions, consequences for behaviors, and we see mercury sneaking up on Saturn here. In the next day or so, there's a conjunction. But this is really consequences for actions. And we also see the remember when the air is some Pluto squared each other 5 times. We had the beginning of the me too movement. So this can be follow-up on that and also follow up on things that need to be taken care of as they say. Moon is on a world point. Uranus is on a world point when we had that last week that was when Biden hopped on the plane and went off to Kyiv to visit zelensky. And I remember saying, oh, that's going to be a famous thing in my pockets to folks. And of course, we woke up on that new moon on Monday to find him there, you know, walking around with Kyiv looking at the warm war ill and talking to his zelensky. This is a companion aspect, because now the moon is in a semi squared to this Uranus, but it's in cancer.

"So you thought that and then you thought you thought witch hunt, I suppose, is this word that's used against trans people, but obviously invokes a huge history of listen much literary stuff all the way back to the Salem witch trials and beyond. And how did you sort of metabolize that into your story? Because it's a very modern fresh story, isn't it? Yeah, so it's set in 2022. It's about a coven of witches who live in and around hebden bridge in west Yorkshire. Where we went for one of our episodes listeners, find it on here. It is very clear and very much. And yeah, I mean, it just, it seemed really, really clear to me that for as long as there have been women, there have been different types of women who are blamed for all the ills in society. You know, going back to the days of the tudors and the stuarts, you know, it was Paul women, sex workers, disabled women, unmarried women, a lot of the time, homeless women, and then you know, as you move into the 20th century, the first 9 11 paranoia around women wearing the hijab, or the kneecap, you know, going back into the civil rights movement in America, you know, how, you know, how racial politics would bring about the end of civilization in America. You know, there have always been demonized groups and right now in the UK, I can think of few minority groups who are talked about in the same breath as such trans women kind of, I guess, refugees received the same very negative treatment. And so I did want to consider the role of what if a trans woman sought refuge within the coven. And from that, then all of a sudden it became so much more than just kind of like a genre novel about a group of witches. It was it is a fantasy novel. And I think that's really important because that's why I love this book. It's you know, there's a lot of worldbuilding, the organization of the coven is really fun. But ultimately it was my way of working through the prejudice that I've experienced. In a way, in a way that I enjoyed and weirdly writing this book was quite cathartic for me in thinking about bigotry. And you know, one of the things which I think it's important to talk about, we talk about the treatment of trans women, then there's also the treatment of trans people in general, and there are specificities around that. But sometimes it can feel like a bit like the Northern Ireland conflict was where it's so this rolling thing that we don't really truly ever know is quite going on. But for people listening who may be aren't across it. Like, where are we at? What's happening right now that is so specifically bad that hasn't been happening before? Because I do feel like when I feel like ten years ago, I'm slightly making up that time frame. It felt like we were moving in a slightly more positive direction and then for some reason we're rolling back and then people start talking about Brexit. But yeah. Well, although I think I bizarrely, I think that does two concepts are actually really linked because I think we have a very, very right wing government with a very, very right wing press. And so the problem is the press can't really examine the failures of Brexit. You know, the press got really examined the failures of the government because they put them there. You know, the press became a machine for both Brexit and our government. But they have to fill their papers. They have to, I think, confect issues, which is why, which is why we do hear so much about migrants for years and years and years, just headlines in the right wing press about migrants about this sort of Phantom Menace of what would happen if people came with whereas actually our the numbers of migrants have remained fairly steady. Over the last two decades. And anyway, I think the same was true of trans women, which is we've got a bit of a spicy story here. It seems to be gaining traction. You've got some high profile celebrities or public figures who are willing to engage in this kind of conversation. Let's make this our new story. And I think it was a backlash to those very small gains that we made. And when you think about what gains did trans people make, well, there was the gender recognition act of 2004, which was where after many, many years we were able to legally change our gender, you know, now you can apply to get a new birth certificate that reflects your real gender. You can get a passport. All the things so that there were steps forward in 2004, and then I think post 2000 in Florida and perhaps more vitally, I think there were cultural steps involved as well, which is that trans people were willing to live in the shudders anymore. You know, I think I remember that being trans people in the little town in Yorkshire where I grew up in the 80s. And they were figures of fun, they were figures of ridicule, they were talked about very negatively. And I think trans people post 2004 along with the legal recognition that we got, what do you think could we just live with dignity please? And I think that was what it was about and with that, you know, the innovation of reality TV as well. So trans people were able to put themselves on television in a way that they hadn't. And I think as well sort of demanding that we will perceived differently in art as well that we were no longer just dead sex workers, which was all serial killers. Those were the two of the two genders up until a few years ago. As a trans person in the media, you were either a dead sex worker or you were, in fact, a Norman bay kind of Buffalo Bill style serial killer. And then there was for the first time and survival to me. They were role models. You know, I could look to people like Andrea pedic, Paris Leeds, Nadia on big brother, you know, then the awareness increase in awareness that there were trans men in the world as well, kind of that's something that I'd been previously on almost unheard of even there are trans men all through history kind of. And so I just think where is us as LGBTQ people we were a little bit ahead of the mainstream, I guess. And I think that's why there were those relatively calm years between like 2010 and 2016, where it did feel like we were making real progress in terms of trans people being more readily accepted and understood and so maybe it was inevitable there was going to be a bit of a backlash or at least I guess questions around trans people increased visibility in society because we've always been around. It was just that we became more visible. And then I think the press just saw an opportunity and just ran with it. You know, and I think, you know, it's a real shame because there are so many conversations we should be having around women and as I say in the book, you know, this conversation about trans women is just not the conversation that I think we should be having. And there's also a big dichotomy between press and manufactured arguments that are clickbait and how you live your day to today life. And do you find yourself supported by other women in general, because I imagine you do. Yeah, I think basically I was raised by a matriarchy. You know, I was raised, I thought this sounds awful. I'm sure my dad isn't listening, but you know, I was largely raised by women. I'm a mom and two grandmas and my sister as well. And, you know, the first person I came out to was a woman. My

"I think I really have to, but you're right, because I wouldn't have said that in 1996. Because there were no positive role models of trans people for me to look to. I barely even knew that normal people from off of Bradford could do that because if you did see a trans person, it was kind of presented to you in such a circus that how could a normal person ever identify with something that the media was making into a freak show? Like nobody, I don't think anybody's going to look at a freak show and sort of think, oh yeah, that's me. I get it now kind of and, you know, the way that trans women were talked about in the 90s was just wild. So that there's something about Miriam. Yes. TV show. For anyone who doesn't know, dating show, you know, about all these men trying to date this woman and then revealing literally on a podium at the end that she was trans, right? And that actually wasn't that long ago. That was, I believe. No, I'm really naughty. It's just feeding it every negative stereotype about trans women that we're deceptive, that we are about to trap men for our sexual deviancy and cutting everyone in that show is exploited. The guys who exploited Miriam was exploited, you know, it was just unacceptable, really, and we slightly rose tint Nadia's stint on big brother as well because she wasn't in the house as trans. And I'll tell you what hasn't aged well is when somebody got vouched out of the big brother house, davina was like rocking in her chest saying, guess what I know about nerdy? Guess what I know about Nadia? You know, and it's really, really gleefully revealed that Nadia is transgender. So I think we've slightly glossed over how celebratory nadi's inclusion was. Although, of course, she won a public vote by some considerable margin, but yeah, her treatment on that show was kind of garbage, though. That's interesting, yeah, because you forget that detail, don't you? And what about, I don't know if you feel this, but I feel like often we talk about trans women and sometimes trans men, not enough. I mean, there's no such thing as enough. Everyone, it's not cake. You know what I mean? But I think we talk to and about trans women loads on this podcast. And sometimes they sit there going, the trans men must be like, hello, because there are specificities and I know neither of us are trans men. But you know, I think it's a good distinction to make. And I think the keyword is trans misogyny, which is the incredible overlap of transphobia experience and the misogyny or experience and how you can't really separate the two. You know, the first time I wore a mini skirt in public. And I remember where I was. It was felt him station. Is that the one near Heathrow? I was quite early in my transition and I just had a lot of hair extensions put in to kind of hide behind basically. And I was wearing a really boring denim skirt with some tights and some boots and off I went to I was visiting a school. I think we'd work. And as soon as I stepped out of the station a white van went past in the window and went down another little man had just popped out and he just went legs and continued to drive off now it's really difficult to know we can't know if that

"Back from South Africa, big news. I went to Cape Town. Wow. What a place. I mean, the waves are big, the beaches big, the mountains are big, the wind is big. It's very windy, the sun is big. It was boiling hot, the power cuts are big. There was like two paragraphs a day, they do this thing called load shedding. It's to do with people using too much power there. Someone cleverer than I will be able to write in and tell me exactly what was going on. I know there was lots of pockets. I saw I didn't see one seal. I saw loads of seals because they all just mill around on the beach. I also saw, there's this app called like shark tracker. I think it's called shark tracker. Anyway, because I'm obsessed with the fact that I'm going to be killed by a shark. I downloaded this app called shark tracker and where I could see where they had been sharks, near me. And there were two, but they had one was like, was there in 2018 and one was there in 2014. So I felt it's safe to dip a dough in the water. I tell you where I was staying. I was staying just by where they filmed the amazing documentary my octopus friend. About this man who makes friends with an octopus by going to visit it every day, and he's at a particular time of his life. And if you haven't seen it, it is such a wonderful documentary. Full spoiler alert and not that kind of spoiler. I didn't get to watch the end. Why? Because there was a power cut. So I need to finish watching the end, but I was just absolutely so intoxicated by it. So that's been my excitement. How have you all been? Oh, blimey. Can you hear that snoring? How was your blue Monday? Blue Monday, which was. A few days ago, apparently the most depressing day the year. Somebody told me this week, it is something that was invented by travel company in 2015 to sell holidays. So stick blue Monday up your something Monday can stick it up its own, I don't know. But in all seriousness, if you are struggling, because it can be a really tricky time of year, plus we're going through tricky times at the moment in the show notes are some resources for places to help you talk if you are not feeling great because I know that that has always helped me I must say. Today, we've got someone on the podcast who it's really funny how we end up in the situation, but sometimes we do. Juno Dawson is our guest today. Bestselling author and podcaster. Juno was one of the first visible trans activists in the UK to my knowledge. It's always I'm probably wrong. We actually always wanted her to be a guest in the first ever season and we kind of just it never quite came together. No fault of Juno's, by the way. And junior has always been really lovely and kind to the podcast kind to me and accepting and inviting and warm and lovely because she's an amazing person. And over the past few years has become this absolute top international bestselling author. So it's really exciting to talk to her about her books like her majesty's royal coven, which is this massive smash hit that's out at the moment. But also to talk about the history of being a trans actress and how differently she is treated now to even 5 years ago. Really, really lovely, broad ranging chat with the wonderful person. So that's coming up. Have you caught up with all our episodes over the holiday season? The Hun's net episode. Thanks everybody. You all loved it. You had such great in such nice things. Then we spoke to TV vet James Greenwood about life as it gave it. So many messages from you all just saying how it connected with you. I'll get into that actually because we've got a few of them here and then Bobby box last week with sex and relationship questions all about losing shame around sex. I would honestly call that episode essential listening. That conversation with Bobby just stayed with me on so many levels I join him. Keep emailing us. Hello at homo sapiens popcorn dot com. Who has it been on Instagram, tell us what you thought of the episodes, get in touch at homo sapiens on Instagram, share stories, share problems. Tell me about any shame liberation you have experienced around sex and whether that's to be the conversation with Bobby or not. Asking for what you want. Let's start there. On to emails. People have been getting touched but the James Greenwood episode. Unlikely dad previous guests had love listening to this today, completely resonated with my experience of growing up in the suburbs at that time. You follow here, doctor J Greenwood, well, do you lovely people following each other? As a vet nurse, I can totally corroborate this. Love listening to this episode of the port said PMC Ginger. And Jake's been in touch on Instagram but last week's episode answering your sex and relationship questions with Bobby box. Thoroughly enjoyed this episode. I totally relate to the point about being able to articulate myself clearly and professional settings, but when it comes to my most intimate relationship, the shame wizard starts whispering in my ear. Funny, isn't it? The shame wizard is a very clever wizard of all the wizards. Yeah, it's when that voice gets in your head, you doubt yourself and I don't think that gets easier, but I do think we become firmer, the objective is to become firmer with telling it to shut up because it knows nothing. And I'm really pleased you brought that up because I think it's really important point. We all have it. We just need to choose whether we want to listen to it or not. Baptiste got in touch. Dear Chris and the team had to write in after listening to the Bobby box episode that I loved. This is the sex and relationships episode. Getting rid of shame, it was brilliant. I loved it. That's me talking back to baptiste. It is so refreshing to hear people talk about sex openly and help demystify normalise it. There are some great resources out there. My husband and I have been using doctor range's book how to grow up and feel amazing. And it's been a great way to start conversations with our kids. Another advice that I read in the amazing book pleasure activism by Adrienne Marie Brown is to simply ask the kids what they would like to know and let them guide their own sex Ed at their own pace fascinating I love it. Right, I'll continue reading here, but if you can hear me over the snoring behind me. The reason I am so passionate about it is because I have the privilege to have a very fulfilling sex life. All right, baptiste, NATO, rub it in. And it is a very important part of who I am. My husband and I are polyamorous and are always exploring and seeking new ways to create pleasure in ourselves and others. The thing that particularly resonated with me was that Bobby spoke about all types of relationships and gender. In my experience, the straight world has a long way to go at ethnic countless women who do not get any pleasure out of sex, which is so sad. This leads me to one particular thing that I think needs unpacking further. I think that it is fine for some people to want to know whether I am top or bottom before we even consider going any further. I have nothing against it. People go even as far as asking the size of my penis to see whether I am worth their time. Good God. That's me, speaking now. I mean, listen, that's what happens on the apps, isn't it? Now my issue with this is that it kills creativity, which I would argue is a key element to good sex. Such good point web test. By pre selecting my partners on such a reductive criteria, I am a lot less likely to discover new things. Yes, for example, I once had sex with a man ahead of vagina. I never felt that I needed to know ahead of time. These reductive criteria exclude anyone that doesn't fit in them. Also, what I'm thinking baptiste is that these reductive criteria are ways of avoiding intimacy. Big topic, but I'm going there. That's what I think. Let yourself be known. Sex just like relationships needs to be redefined with every different partner. Let's burn the script. Yes, baptiste. I wanted to mention a couple of great things. Some people are out there trying really hard to create good porn. One that I can recommend is the website called himeros TV. Baptiste has put a link or put it in the show notes because that's the kind of podcast we are. We've got mental health resources and good poem resources all next to each other. It's a one stop shop. They are showing different types of bodies, including trans and disabled and have a great ethos. I love love

"Winning a Juno or getting nominated? Well, I would say I know we're talking about the Juno's, but I was this made me think of what both Jade and Allen were just saying is that with the Polaris prize, you get $50,000 to support your work. I mean, I think there's incontrovertible evidence that an artist like lido pimienta or Jeremy dutcher is directly supported by having that cash investment in their career, particularly at that stage. So you get both the recognition that we're talking about and also in real economic terms, the actual support to continue making your art. And I think it's not to say that the Juno's don't have, I think, the boost in terms of creating economic opportunity for artists. So it follows that you're going to get maybe more bookings from our live shows, selling more of your CDs, that kind of thing. I think that's clearly an outcome. But I think it would be even better if there was an actual cash investment in the artist. Absolutely. Jade? Yeah, I was just going to say, yeah, I absolutely agree. I think financial means in the end is really that's what's that's what artists need. And that's where that's where the support really should be. Many artists have had mixed feelings about the former indigenous category because it's so broad and because there's so many genres that are artists are creating. What criticisms have you heard from the community? Artists want to be represented in all genres. They want to have opportunity in all categories. And it doesn't seem to be, you know, I think a lot of people don't feel like they can access those genres or that it's very, very, very, very rare. I kind of reject the idea of the other categories being bigger. I think the premise of this question and this question is about the validity or the need for an indigenous category is asked almost every year. And I think for me, I grew up without a lot of positive representation on screen or in the media. And so I think we've been all inundated with the idea that being indigenous isn't the greatest, I think. From tonto, I think the question is always for me, what I hear is like, why do you want to be tonto? Don't you want to be the lone ranger? And the idea that we don't have value unless it's proven in competition with our Canadian counterparts is what I really reject. I do think our jurors are qualified. I do think there is value in an award coming from people in our community and that we are good enough. And so again, this is, for me, it took me a long time to learn how to love myself as a native man. And I think for me, this question is always about that. Yeah. Absolutely. Jared, do you have that? I guess my thought would be not sort of framing getting a recognition within the indigenous category as being an either or, but hopefully that and indigenous artists should be recognized kind of in every category. So if an artist is the best new artists are best and we're just regardless. And winning an indigenous Juno shouldn't preclude that possibility of them also being considered and valued in the rest of the rest of the awards categories that are out there. So from my perspective, I want to see that inclusion across the boards as well as in the indigenous categories. Absolutely. And Ellen, just to swing back to what you had said earlier about the category is in itself valid. You've made the case that there should be distinct indigenous music categories. In addition to the mainstream categories, can you walk me through what you were thinking there? Yeah, I think like indigenous people are just as diverse as Europeans. And so the Cree are definitely different than Inuit. And so when we're going to recognize if we should, I think we should be recognizing excellence within each of the nations, the challenge becomes like the recorded product as the main context for the Juno awards. And so we don't have enough recordings coming out of each of these nations and they're definitely isn't enough to adjudicate and so having our category just for creed music might not make a lot of sense. So yeah, I think representation and extremely important. The system is not perfect and we've got to work within the context of the Juno's. This isn't our table. We've just got a seat of it. Two seats at it now. And so I think we just got to make do with what we have to be honest. Alan, Jade Jarrett, thank you so much for this conversation today, so much appreciate you taking the time with me. Thanks for having us. Thanks, Andy. Thanks a lot, Rosanna.

"Submit. So there was like a lull there. And finally, at long last, the committee that under the leadership of Amanda realm and dense smoke right now, you know, we're able to really put it all together and they got the split. So 28 years later, finally, the Juno's this year 2022 are going to have their own traditional and contemporary indigenous artist or group of the year. And man, that's just awesome. I'm just so proud of all of them. The young ones who came up and took the work, you know? Carried on with the vision. I'm so proud of all of them. That's a lane ball berry, who helped create the original indigenous music category for the Juno awards in 1993. It took a long time to get here, but thanks to our path makers, here we are. You might think that having two categories would be welcomed by the indigenous music scene. Twice as many nominees, twice as many winners. That's gotta be a good thing. Or is it? Joining me are three people who've had a hand in promoting the indigenous music scene. Alan gray eyes runs the artist and project management company I'll get you to arts. Produces the saki way festival, and sits on the board for the Polaris music prize. Jade Harper has worked in music promotion and film production. She recently held the role of indigenous music export coordinator for Manitoba music. And Jared martineau is the host creator and producer of reclaimed. The first indigenous music series on CBC radio and CBC music. Welcome, welcome. Dante and anise all around. Thank you, Rosanna for having me. Yes, thank you for the invite. Good to be here. Let's start with Alan. What would your reaction to the news that they're adding a second category to the Juno music awards? I think it's great. I think the indigenous category the one category give us at least one guarantee that there would be a message coming from indigenous person on that national stage. I'm a firm believer that we need at least one representative from indigenous people, I guess, for every national event, every stage, if not one from the First Nations, one from matey and one from Inuit, I think that's the next step. And Jade and Jared, what was your reaction to the news? Yeah, I thought it was a really good step as well. The traditional music category, I always think about it wasn't that long ago that our ceremony in our music was outlawed in this country. And so seeing this as an additional opportunity for indigenous music, indigenous people to come into the Juno's and celebrate their music or have their music celebrated. I thought was a really excellent move. Yeah, I think from my perspective, I have questions. I have questions about this move. I think it's I'm all for more artists being nominated, I think, including more of us in the national music conversation in the way that we're all sharing. It's super important. So from that perspective, absolutely agree and full support for as many of our people to be sharing that stage and getting that recognition as possible. I think there's also questions about how we frame what is being classified in terms of different kinds of indigenous music. I mean, even the terminology in terms of the shift from using the word aboriginals using the word indigenous or First Nations, may T Inuit, depending on how people feel like they identify with that terminology and then particularly with loaded terms like contemporary or traditional. And I think that that implies applies lots of different things to lots of different people, depending on who you're talking to. So I think that it raises for me questions around who's doing that adjudication who's determining what counts in terms of what belongs where and how are we ensuring that this diversity of understandings of these things get brought forward in terms of something like this with an award. Yeah, but certainly it points to desire maybe to recognize at least to two categories in contemporary and traditional. I mean, we're never going to be able to have every category, right? I assume. Well, maybe we will. Hopefully, the years are still to come. Well, we do have we had the indigenous music awards here and I want to peg. We've had the Canadian Aboriginal music awards in Toronto. Indian summer of music awards in Milwaukee. And so there is a history of us starting our own award shows. I think that the challenge is on the financial side. I think award shows in general are fighting for their relevancy and we see that at the Grammys and at the Juno. So it's no surprise that the indigenous music awards were going to face that as well. Yeah, absolutely. And this year there are ten nominees. Most which have never been nominated before. How does a junod help a musician's career? I think it depends on who you ask. I think certainly for artists that have and I think about many of the artists that are nominated this year in terms of getting their first Juno knot and particularly some of the younger artists, I think getting that kind of validation from a national organization like this really helps them to feel like they can kind of keep going on their hustle and keep going on making their music and they've gotten that affirmation that I think can help them feel like their work is reaching people and I think there's so few opportunities you've been still for indigenous artists to kind of get hurt, get seen, be visible in the national stage that any opportunity that can help support that is a good one. So I think especially for young artists, it's a really big benefit. Jade, how have you seen the Juno indigenous music award help? The broader community, the indigenous music industry, has it been helpful in that regard? Well, I mean, from my perspective, it's really been that collective celebration and I agree with what Jared has to say just around like that sense of pride and the ability to be able to say that, yes, I've been recognized nationally and people typically know what the junos are and something that's widely celebrated. So I mean, I don't think I've ever met an artist or showcased an artist who was like, you know, winning that Juno really sucked. So I mean, but I mean, is it launching people's careers into the next one, two, three, four, 5 steps of I'm not sure it really has that capacity, but I definitely think that at something. And I think it is important. And I think it is celebrated. I just also add like, I consider awards as just small steps on your path to building a career. And so I think awards in different genres tell stories that we might not be able to express artistically in our biographies. And so if you don't want to say you're an indigenous artist, you can say that you've won a Juno and the indigenous category. And some people even just leave out the category that they've won the award and because honestly, it just provides credibility. And I remember Leela gilday saying the first Juno she won the year after that was the best financial year she's ever had in her career. It definitely helped her open up a lot of doors and book a lot more performances. Is there other artists that you can think of whose career has been helped or boosted by.

"The key. We had to put a lid on it for 6 weeks. Until the Juno press conference, Buffy said, well, can we leave little hints? Do they say, well, but you can't come right out and say it's going to happen, right? So later that night, Buffy went on the late night talk show with Ralph bedroom that night on CBC. And then she just kind of said more and more. I'm hoping that the rest of Canada will get turned on to native music because it's such a wide range of musics there. You're finding a way to bring that to people. Well, it's out there. It's already there. Yeah. You know, I just presented the idea to the Juno's of possibly having an indigenous category sometime in the future. And I don't know yet, but I'm really hoping that it will happen. Here we already knew. Two months later, at the 1993 Juno awards, Buffy saint Marie made the official announcement. Tonight I have the pleasure of announcing a new category at the Juno awards. Which will begin next year. The music of Aboriginal Canada category. I was just tickled pink, you know? I really was tickled big watching it at home on TV. Very proud. So we can make an audience. You know, we can make room for our people, you know? So yeah, I felt really amazing. My heart was just a thumb. Elaine says it was always their intention to grow the category. The original intention of the Aboriginal category was to keep it as broad as possible to include both our traditional and contemporary musicians and knowing that, you know, maybe a couple of years down the road, we would split it. At first there was a little bit of a number of the traditional groups you're saying, how do I compete against a rock and roll band? How do I compete? Against hip hop or whatever. So they felt a bit defeated and stopped.

Seattle schools superintendent awaits parents' feedback on reopening plans
"School superintendent in East Juno, urging families to return a survey sent out last week asking if their student will be attending in person instruction or if they're going to stay at home with remote learning. There is still no agreement, though, on a return to school for middle and high school students, the latest from Cuomo's Carleen Johnson. April. 5th is the return date for elementary students. Assuming the teachers union ratifies a tentative agreement in voting that began today, Superintendent Juno telling the school board last night, they don't yet know how many families are going to choose. The in person option of our final planning is dependent on survey results. Including teacher assignments, and your student's individual schedule. That deadline to respond is Wednesday. Juno says transportation is going to be a challenge with too few bus drivers at this point, and they've adjusted the start time to eight a.m.. Students to go in person will spend half the day at school four days a week and receive remote instruction from home. The other half of the day. Families were being asked if they prefer mornings or afternoons at school. Gino says. Negotiations continue with the teachers union on the return of middle and high school students, but the governor's orders set April 19th as a deadline.

"You know, around this time last year, the Canadian comic Shawn cut hand was really trying to get his comedy career off the ground. He was going to a ton of open mikes. He was getting some paid gigs. He just performed a really successful set One night. I'm a single native in my thirties with no kids. Oh, I'm like a very white buffalo set that he recorded was about to send off to the just for last festival. You know, in hopes of performing there. We all know how that would turn out festivals and coveted Well, they don't really go together. So going from performing every week to now, having to step off the stage, Sean had to look to other outlets for his comedy. And one of those outlets strangely, and he'll tell you the story was writing his aunt's eulogy. I got to talk to Shawn cut hand. From Saskatoon. Hey, Sean, How are you? Hey, I'm pretty good. How are you? Good. How is this catch one tonight. Today has the house Saskatoon today. We're finally sitting above zero. So we're doing good. Yeah, you could take off the winter coat. Thank God. Hey. Yeah. Finally s o. I want to get an idea of how things were for you before Cove it last year. What was work like for you back then, just before covert. Um I actually went to Ottawa to be a talent associate further inspire words. And that was just just before things started getting like backstage at that award show. We're kind of getting in mumblings of like, Oh, we better not be hugging everyone. And then that finished and I came home to Saskatoon and the next week. That was gonna work down backstage after Juno's and it went from going backstage there the first day too. Don't touch anyone. Hand shakes aren't allowed no hugging. And then we did our first day of orientation. And then the next day, the Juno's were just canceled. I remember I was there, I would do you remember that day we all woke up thinking that the Jew knows we're gonna happen and everything was all right. And then the news just started pouring in. It was terrifying. Yeah, it's like way start like the whole stage set up the day before And then it's just like, Yeah, everything's done. What was your comedy life like Before the pandemic? It was going pretty good. Like I was getting consistent gigs. I had just finished the holiday season and I had done my first half hour at Yuck yucks, which was like a big milestone for me that I had been working on and then me and my buddy Danny night. We're running this open mic Sunday nights at The compromise, which is just a little hole in the law ball bar, and we kind of wood. Just it was like a gorilla open mic. I called it. We just showed up that like 6 30 set up a carioca machine and Didn't open mic at 7 30 on people in the room. Didn't really know what was going on. It's always a good way to do a performance. Sneakily. Yeah s O. I mentioned earlier that you said you did a bit of tape that you were going to send off just for laughs, Um, in hopes of getting to perform there. I want to hear a bit of that. Take a listen. If you just look at a yogurt parfait like if you just look at the cup, I swear it's got the answer to all of the statue in problem great there, you know, Because first you got the white yogurt taking up all the space. On then up top. You got the brown shattered and broken granola. But then in the middle, you got this sweet Barry is a reconciliation. E my guest, Sean, Better great comic from Saskatoon. What's it like to hear that back when you could do stand up? Oh, yeah, Like, like what I was saying, Like I was really happy with that performance like I'm actually gonna put it online for sale pretty soon. Because, yeah, I just want to share it around. It was a good recording and Didn't really get to get much use out of it. And just like, yeah, the crowd was Really amped up that night because I think they knew that they weren't going to be in public for a while. Yeah, And that was the same Sunday that the Jew nose was gonna be And the day after that performance was when lockdown happened. Wow, that's crazy. That's like hearing it, like hearing the Chernobyl or something like that. Yeah, Yeah, It's like a little time capsule. I think. Yeah, You know, I've been talking to a few comics in the past year, and it hasn't been easy to like. I feel like musicians have been able to do a live streams and actors have still been able to do some movies. I feel like this has been hard on stand up comics and really, you know, in a really interesting way, right? Yeah, like we really need audiences to develop our material and like even doing them on zoo Mike's with other comedians like it's just It's not the same. You know, because other comedians will Laugh at your stuff. Differently than an audience well and yeah, like I've been doing a lot of soon Mike's. I've been doing it with people from Chicago people from London, UK and Rome, Italy. Even it's been pretty wild on zoom right, because it's not the same. You don't get that that big collective laughter, right? No. Yeah, like a lot of people have their mikes muted and you're just looking to see like if they're reacting on this screen. Yeah. Don't let me go to you. But what's the story on this one? I actually heard that you did. You did stand up on your aunt's funeral for her eulogy. I'm about first off. I I know you guys were close. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you. What was she like? She was Here is an amazing person. She was the type of person that would always tell it like it is, you know, even with just the look of her eyes. She should. She could tell you tell you how it is, and she was She was big into taking a stand Me in her pro tested a couple of times together and she was a fire keeper on her reserve, Aqua, sassy Mohawk Nation. And yes. Oh, this, uh During covert She passed away due to cancer complications. And what was there with her name? Joyce Caskey. Sorry you were saying so She passed away and you had a service for Yeah, we went to Ontario and we had like a socially distance memorial. And it was kind of different. And like the morning of the memorial, my my dad just kind of just left the eulogy up to me and I was like, what really was kind of like Trying to get some some information that I could use from her childhood or something and and like that, I think people were being kind of agency. But the info and that's what I just kind of like. I had some jokes that I had practiced that involved her. And then I just added a couple stories into it. And I ended up making like a like a little eight minute. A performance that was like part stand up part just speaking from the heart. How did it I mean, This is a strange question for a funeral that how did it go over? Yeah, it actually like, went pretty good, like you know, because it went from like Everyone was in like a somber mood. And then I got up to talk, and I acted like I was gonna talk serious. But then I just cracked a joke at one of the what one of the attendees of the of the funeral and everyone. Was just laughing. And then I told some funny stories about my auntie and It's pretty great, that's beautiful. I mean, I think we think about stand up is something that happens that kind of smoky nightclubs. And that's that's all good. And we think about funerals is just things that are too sad, you know, and that's all good to you. It's lovely. It feels like you were able to It feels like you were able to bring some joy to your family when they needed it through your craft, right? Yeah, when someone passes away, and people are in that stage of grief there kind of focused on on how that person passed away and I think it's important in those times toe, Remember how they lived and the person that they were And cherish those moments, and she's a part of the reason you did stand up it all right? Yeah. She gave me a lot of confidence in my stuff because it was like years to go. My brother passed away when I was 22. He was 20. He was 23. Yeah, and I ended up having to do the eulogy. With my other brother for that one. And that one was more serious and really hard. But I remember after that, my auntie, she was the first one to come up to me, and she was Really proud of me, and she told me that She could picture me being a public speaker one day. And that that compliment like always stuck in my head. And I'm now like Look at me what I do now, so it really helped me a lot when when this is all over. You know, please God, when when this finally ends, and you're able to get up on stage and start doing comedy again. How do you think you have been changed by this year? To be honest, I think I've gained a lot of confidence this past year because a bunch of US comedians from Saskatoon Led by Dakota. He bear way started booking shows and people's backyard on the weekends. And so we would go into people's backyards and do a private show and sometimes, like I I did a show for six people in Martinsville and like to be stand in front of just six people like you really got a perform and not make things awkward and So I think those performances really helped me and I like to get in front of new audiences again. I'm kind of excited toe. Skills. When you picture and maybe this is a good way to close things off when you picture A year from now. What do you hope it looks like for you. I hope that I'm just consistently hosting an open Mike every Sunday again. That's what I would like to do. Yeah. Well, I hope it happens. I hope you never have to go on. Zoom ever again.

Small Ships in Alaska: A Guide To Cruising off the Beaten Path
"The big ship alaska season is probably over for this year. However there are four key cruise operators that are still going to cruise because they are small ships and they are not band. They do not have to stop and canada. And those cruise lines are alaskan dream cruises american cruise lines lindblad expeditions and un crews there all featuring small ships sailing under a us flag without the need to visit a foreign port so christopher wanted to know like what are those crews like what what is something like that look like what is the itinerary like and as such a good question. So i'm gonna go through it with you guys. Because i want you to know it's very different from a big ship cruise but a sample one on cruise adventure. Let's just look at their alaska glacier country seven night cruise and see what this is like. Okay you're gonna get one day in glacier bay national park. Excuse me joined by park ranger you're going to have up-close looks at dawes marjorie and grand pacific glacier. Those are that's three glaciers. You're going to bushwack in the tonga's national forest. You're going to go to the fords terror wilderness area by skiff and hike inland. If you want. I'm sure a lot of this hiking in book bush whacking is all very optional. On i think it's chicken gough island you'll see humpback whales and frederick sound and the chatham strait you'll do wildlife searches for black and brown bears a number of areas you're gonna kayak paddle board and skip if you want to. You're going beach comb. You're going to visit tide pools and you're going to go on forest ecology discoveries. But you're still going to visit different ports in fact you might embark in juneau and that's very different right. You actually embark in june so you can get started there then on day two you might go to icy strait have a nice cup of coffee get snug in your kayak and glide around and kayak that date again. There's loads of options. Then you might have your third day. Glacier bay national park your fourth day might be in the chatham strait seeing so many different things. If you'd like to go backpacking and go skipping on a boat. You can day five. You might go to q. Island day six frederick sound day seven endicott arm and dawes glacier and day eight juno now again this particular one that i read to you guys is more all about explorations. Less about port stops but they do have several itineraries from une cruised that visit the ports the standard ports as well. But since you're doing round trip juno they're just really focused on adventure and exploration and things like that. They're

Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Denise Juneau talks handling of pandemic and moving on
"Seattle School District Superintendent Denise Juno says she has some regrets about how the district has navigated the pandemic or handling of the emergency for the last year, is said to be one of the reasons the school board opted. Not to extend her contract more from Cole's Carleen Johnson. The district is under investigation for taking too long to get those special ed students back into classrooms. But do you know explains their approach was different than many district's thought It was important to maintain that connection for students going to places where they were used to talking to the teacher that they knew and loved. And then also our teachers having access to classrooms that they were in it, so it took a little longer to make those matches. She says she does regret they were not prepared to get every student a laptop and WiFi connection when students were first sent home last spring, and she says teachers Didn't get all the help they needed for online learning, and those first months she is leaving at the end of June. Her replacement for the next year as interim superintendent is expected to be Dr Brent Jones, who served as Gino's director of equity and engagement. The school board will finalize that decision on

The State of Agile With Vasco Duarte, Ryan Ripley, and Chris Williams
"One of the questions that came up. I is you know. Let's let's start angry. What pisses us off about. The current state of agile as we experience it daily today. I'm pissed off. And i'm not taking it anymore. I guess i'll i'll jump in here. I've you know todd. And i have been talking a lot lately about we. We've been working with a lot of companies who have been sold. These million dollar multimillion dollar transformations And you know people are slapping different frameworks and different methodologies on top of really deep rooted cultural issues and they're not getting anywhere and at once the money runs out the consultants go away and they're not better off and really tired of watching that play out over and over and over again It's just turned into this big money. Grab where big box consulting firms just slap a bunch of consultants and and others into place. They clear their bench charge as much as they can. They don't really do anything. And then leave and it just That is just perpetuated and over and over again. It leaves a just makes everything more difficult you know. I'm more than happy to come in and clean up and try to teach professional scrum and help companies kind of undo the damage of these big box consultants. But it's like oh. Can we just skip that step in and really learn how to work in new ways and i don't know what do you guys think so. I see the same happening Looking back. I saw the same happening in finland. Let's say late. Two thousand two thousand eight two thousand nine. We heard through the grapevine that accenture have created a natural practice and they had a two hundred page manual and then of course. I was working with At that time two thousand eight dollars working with the one of the first safe adoptions. It was called achard released train at that time. A rt which i thought was kind of a cool art right because his own about art. There's no science to working with people. It's all about leaving the moment understanding. What's going on and reacting and then of course failing but learning quickly and then adjusting right and if i think what what ryan is said and turn the to all the way up to eleven. I would say that we have lost our way we were talking about. The ryan was talking about bringing kanban back to its origins simply fight. Well i would like to remind everybody that this whole atul think did not start with -scriminate. Didn't start with condon either. It started with the small talk community. Doing what they called at that time. Extreme programming xp and if we go all the way back to the roots extreme programming was taking the best practices and just turning it all the way up to eleven. We hear a lot about how safe doesn't have a customer in the big picture. And so on juno that. Xp had a practice called customer in the room so every team had a customer literally. That's what they called it. The customer that told them whether they were going in the right direction. So if i go to what pisses me off is that we're forgetting what it was that we started back in the late nineties. Early two thousands. And i'm not talking about technical practices. We've forgotten those very much. That's for sure. But i'm talking about everything else. Even the the whole idea of what agile is about agile is not about delivering more crap faster. It's about delivering less but delivering what matters about focusing on value. It's about iterating quickly and so the theme in in my presence here on this episode is gonna be you know. How do we turn at all the way up to eleven. Just like expedia back in the in the late ninety s. I liked that. I feel that this thing about who buys the most agile right now. It's either banks or insurance. Companies tend to have the biggest budgets to put out jalen play and so they're of a certain size by their nature if you look at the startup community if you look at small enterprise small medium business if you look beyond tech and you look at how companies are are are pivoting and adapting now during covid nineteen. I still see a lot of really good. Agile really customer focused agile. They get it because they have to. They're hungry. It's easy when you go around a small business to see the customer desire to say. How do we want our customers to feel. That question is present in everybody's mind. We want customers to feel cared for special part of something good. We want them to have not features. Stop talking about features and buttons do but what capabilities we give them and again. I prefer to talk about that. In terms of feelings customers feel safe. Customers feel tend to cared for whereas the minute you bring into a large scale environment. Things start getting compromise. Things get lost in translation as we try to make this work at scale.
