Gem Looking at you buddy wait where you gotta start with. my I is is a new season of the Great British baking show the Hell yes best original well in quotes but it's so delightful. I I look forward to scrumptious it. It's the best show I don't care abby on. My second. Pick is door jeans. I'm wearing some theories now very comfortable. I used to wear jeans got into the whole stretchy jeans thing but I found this brand. I think they were Canadian actually and they rebranded to something but it's just like quality everything understand about datum. I looked in these genes and they're just really really good demine. They're they're not too expensive and and my last pick is front masters. I have a full SACRA FRONT END V. Two coming up pretty soon here very soon. You've been working hard hard on that. I've been working very hard to do the same thing because you know what full stack not much changed on the server so I've just re rejigged things so it's a little bit easier a little bit easier to understand but looking forward to teaching that it'll be thinking beginning of October in Minneapolis so tune in life awesome Stacey Stacey. Where do you have all right so I have as as per normal music picks always loved them. They're always good but switching it up I don't actually talk about mostly. I Talk About Techno or electronic music in some form but another thing that I enjoy a lot is metal which I don't really talk about too much so my my three picks are metal so I've got fear inoculated by tool they had not put out an album since two thousand six says it was very exciting that they finally did and all this stuff is on streaming now so super exciting and salsa very very good blood year by Russian circles Osborne instrumental post metal sort of post rock metal. Whatever the genres banned really enjoy them also oh unending by cloud kicker another instrumental Sir post metal and it's just one guy actually so he does everything that you hear in low songs Emma my favorite track from him. Is We're going in. We're going down but those three I think maybe I like instrumental because I can actually listen to it while I code similar to like who is trying to use it. There's not a lot a lot of locals second Kinda Zan outten and rights and code coding. It is too yeah. Actually it is ours would yep struggle with picks so I just came up with them like thirty seconds ago. first one is sort of like. APPREC- off the press a little bit of a plug for my new employer airbnb they have this program that I did not know about until recently called the open homes program which is a way for host to list their homes on the platform for free for victims of disasters refugees and those seeking housing for really important long-term medical care so while. I don't don't think you can donate to the program directly. If you are listening to. This new aren't airbnb host you can donate a proceed up a portion of your current proceeds to this program hoping hoping maybe one day anybody can donate but anyway. I just found that really interesting that that was kind of going on whether or not you need that housing or you are a host and can donate and then Dan. My second pick is catalog choice dot org. I have been recently angered by how many catalogs I get the fact that one hundred hundred pages long and it's absolutely absolutely ridiculous like in one week and there were thirty of these like one hundred page long catalogs and I was now. I'm on a mission to find a way to stop these catalogs from coming to to my mailbox so so cadillac choice dot org is a platform that allowed that helps you unsubscribe from these catalogs really really easily without having to email all of them individually so you just search for your catalog and they'll do the work work for you. sort of driving me crazy. How much paper ends up in my Mailbox Green View it yes. There's that and the deputy deal yeah yeah. It's just it. It just seems ridiculous that Martin Luther is being wasted feel exactly the same way and it's like a it's a real problem but it's a real problem. I don't understand the economics that you can send me like a fifty page full color catalog like when you can just email me something which is free essentially. I don't understand why catalogs exists on. I still love me. A Cadillac lovely race allows you to choose catalogs. You do do not receive anymore. There's of you love your Creighton catalogers sniffing every however the one departures catalog ride never read departures. Why are they wasting paper to print this and send it bring back. Sky Mall Anyway isn't it drives me like bunkers so to anyone out there who is also being driven events slightly bonkers all these catalogues that that good a good resource Tony Woody have for us. Okay I am wearing Lana del. Rey Shirt so I'd like to plug the latest Lana Array Album Norman fucking rockwell and I'm going to see her in Berkeley on Sunday so I'm super excited about seeing my queen the second one is the the indicator which is a economics podcast by planet money really really great. NYMAN episodes every single day current events than economics behind it a trade award cetera really fascinating really high highly produced a good stuff and I wanted to find the gnarliest thing I can think of so one of my gnarliest earliest passions. Is this Youtube Channel called Steve Nine hundred eighty nine Mari Info. This dude reviews historical a Mr Ease from military throughout the world so these are meals ready to eat and all the way all the way back to like World War Two due to like the Spanish American war. We're talking the oldest beefsteak. He's eaten from eighteen eighty so it's a student so the California talks like this. It's like Nice so highly recommend you check that out. It's actually really entertaining. I'm I'm actually finding a good a very very hard to follow this new in fact have to repay the first two were actually books. the first. I I one everybody matters. This is an excellent book about how to think about treating people in your organization with empathy and and this is something that actually got recommended to me from PM that we work with who was on a previous episode. I don't know couple ago Kathy Kong she highlights. This has has been a really good one to really think about how to motivate people. I read it and I love it. It's great I highly recommend it and then my second book pick. It's called super pumped the battle for Uber. This is an interesting book. Let's just say that it's the history of Uber and you know what I thought I knew some of the weird behavior that went on at hoover yet no no not even close. I heard some of the stories. This book paints the pictures. He's like you know what it's crazy. I highly recommend reading it. There are some good things though too is like I honestly believe that their CEO Travis. This was the one to lead this effort. If if you're was exists he made that happen so definitely just go read the book it's Great and then my third pick is a netflix original which is abstract season two.

So we're talking to all kinds of great fingers storytellers and we're getting into the minds and hearts of the folks who tell us their stories in grab our imaginations or moves in different ways or talk about the craft of writing. Of course, I love it. I'm I've nerd out in every possible episode, so I'm really, really excited to bring in my next guest. She is inciteful and she has. Warm. She is funny, she is wise. She's a new book coming out that you're gonna going to love. We're gonna talk about it at link. So it's Kathy Kong, and she is just a friend that I respect and I love and I learned from she's a writer. She's a speaker. She's a Yogi drinker of coffee.

Bethany Corbin Elias, Cathy was born in Korea, and she immigrated to the US when she was eight months old.

So she really knows what she's talking about you guys. She's just like a wealth of knowledge experience. Kathy is the author of two books her I was called more than serving tea. She wanted like twelve years ago with four other co authors where they talked kind of about the intersection of faith in culture in gender, and just tells this really. Important story of being Asian American Christian women, but our latest book is all hers and it's called raise your voice, why we stay silent and how to speak up. I'm actually gonna tell you in this podcast how what I did when I first read it because I had a real strong reaction to this message and this this is the book we need right now in my opinion, because words are very powerful and they have the force to spark ideas to build to change. They topple the status quo is there's never been a time when words matter more. So you know, I think what is your voice like? This is a big question for some of us. We're not even sure what voice sounds like. Right? Art identities are shifting or the way we view the world is shifting. We might not know what we think about everything. Sometimes it's just enough to be present in the moment, much less figure out how we feel about being there and then say it out loud. So this conversation with Kathy is a great reminder. What we have to say is worthy and it matters. And it's powerful, and we're gonna talk all about why that is and how we can use our voices to do. Great, good in the world. If you don't know, Cathy, if you don't already follow her, you're going to be so glad to meet her in this hour.
