He was a contemporary of the writer Homer who wrote the Iliad, and the odyssey he seeds poem is called theology, which means birth of the gods to truly understand the story of the titan novelty. We I need to know how krona's an early God. Or titan was born. The Greeks believed that out of a dark universe. A primordial being emerged guy the earth deity mother of all living things as the only being her life was defined by loneliness. She soon grew tired of the silence and through sheer desperation gave birth to urine us, the deity of the sky. And 'cause mose urine us was to be her equal and provide a home for their children. But while guile was warm and nurturing urine us was cold and prideful nevertheless, urine s and guy became husband and wife and had three sets of children. The first set of children were called the titans, and they were strong, beautiful and intelligent. There were twelve titans. And the youngest was krona's guys. Second set of offspring were three children called the Cyclopes. These three brothers were. Hideous one eyed giants while they were not attractive like they're titan. Brothers and sisters. They were powerful Smith's so Guyane named them. Bronchitis. Stirrups and ARGUS. Her third set of children were the heck Thanh curious three brothers who each had one hundred arms and fifty heads proud urine. Us was disgusted by the Cyclopes and hecatomb curious every day he seved as he watched them walking around the beautiful earth. Marring his otherwise perfect view. His anger grew and grew until he could no longer bear to look at them. He snatched them up and cast them into a deep. Abyss called tartar us. Guile was furious at her husband's cruelty toward his own children. And she vowed revenge. She created a sickle made of Flint and approached her first born children the titans. Your brothers must be avenged and your father punished who among you is brave enough to wield the sickle eleven of the titans were too afraid of their father to take up their mothers cause but one krona's stepped forward for shame. You turn your backs on your own siblings. Mother guy. Give me the sickle. I will take vengeance on our father, I promise that when I rule the universe in his stead, the Cyclopes and the heck it on Cuba's will be free your father as lustful. And we'll visit me soon when he does you must be lying in wait. And so the next time you're on a came to guy and disrobed krona's sprung out from his hiding place. And cut off. His father's genitals emasculated urine fled in terror relinquishing his power, but not before he'd made a fateful prophecy from the spilled blood of Uranus guy Assan opportunity for creation. She produced the fury's the giants and the nymphs of the ash tree. And when you're in his testicles fell into the oceans, they mingled and brought forth. Aphrodite -i the beautiful goddess of love in celebration of new regime. The male titans married their sisters with cronies marrying. His sister Raya Curnis as thanks for your brave deed. You shall become the leader of the titans you and your wife Rayo will rule amount owed threes and the universe will prosper, but cronies did not fulfill his promise to his mother because of his father's prophecy. He became terrified of any threats to his power. Our and refused to release his siblings. The Cyclopes and the Heckert on curious from tardiness guy grew distrustful of her son. But krona's was about to become even worse driven mad by fear. He decided that the only way to avoid the fate of his father was to eat all of his children as soon as they were born as Raya group pregnant, she hoped that her husband was bluffing and would change his mind at the first sight of his child she gave birth to her first born and named the baby girl demeanor. She then presented the infant to her father, my husband pleased. She's but an innocent child. I've named her demeanor is cheap beautiful simply be a loving father to her and she will love you in return. No doubt. That's what our father believed. And look what happened to him. I won't make the same mistake. Now. Oh, please. No. But cronies wouldn't listen to his wife? He swallowed his first child demeanor hole, and he wouldn't stop there. He ate his next four children as soon as they left their mother's womb. Hess, DEA Hera Hades Poseidon all met the same dark fate as immortals they could not die but were instead trapped in their father's stomach, even as they grew strong and powerful over time rail was heartbroken by the loss of her children when she became pregnant with a sixth child, she desperately approached guy for help mother. We have to be quick krona soon notice. I'm gone. I know he's your son. But I don't recognize who he's become his changed. It's true. But perhaps they're still away for him to recognize the error of his ways he is beyond redemption. You have to see that. He was the only one of my sons willing to take on his father. But perhaps what I thought was bravery was really a thirst for power. If you help me, perhaps we can finally secure the release of the Cyclopes and the hecatomb curious it's time for a new leader one who will share power with his brothers and sisters, very, well, my daughter, what do you need I'm pregnant again and krona's all ready knows. I need your help to hide the baby simply hiding the child won't be enough. Cronies will scour the earth if he thinks the child survives. So Raya and guy began making intricate plans to save raise next infant child late one night after months of plotting clouds swirled around the peak of mount oath, raise and rail went into labor in the midst of the searing pain of childbirth. She thought only of saving her child from his father with a final push Ray gave birth to a crying red faced baby the nurse made one of the second generation of titans. Born to the lesser titans that served krona's wrapped the baby in a soft blanket and then left him alone. With his mother Ray allowed herself only a minute with her newborn son, then forced herself to put the plan. She'd made with guy into action she called the nursemaid back, but handed her a stone wrapped in an identical blanket, the nursemaid headed towards krona's chambers with the stone where. Krona's swallowed it whole not suspecting that he had been deceived. Raya still weak from labor made her way down the treacherous clips of mount oath, res and travelled to the isle of Crete with a final kiss. She left the baby Zeus in a cave that she and guy had selected beforehand to protect a newborn guy said wins outside the cave to make constant noise. So that cronies would never hear his cries to raise him she assigned kindly, nymphs, female water spirits who watched over local rivers and creeks to act as surrogate. Mothers. And for sustenance. She gave him a magical goat named a multi from a mall horns, flowed Ambrosia and nectar the food and drink of the divine by consuming such sustenance Zeus would grow strong enough to one day defeat his father. Raya then returned to her husband's side hoping that the plans she had created with guy would be enough. Zeus quickly grew into the strong. God he was destined to be he became impatient with his confines and pestered the nymphs to let him leave the cave while he was grooming a mall his beloved magical goat. They came to him with an answer. You are still young Zeus. You must be patient. I am God the world waits for me. You may be God. But your Father Christmas is a titan, and he has all the titans on his side. If you are to face him in combat you must arm yourself. I perhaps the height of mouthy will do as armor has nursed me for years. I cannot kill her. A mafia was given by your mother to protect you. You have no other choice with sad. Tears Zeus listened to the nymphs and killed a mafia. He fashioned her hide into an impenetrable breastplate. Then. Gave her horns of never ending Ambrosia and nectar to the nymphs to thank them. He had made his first painful sacrifice, but his journey to defeating the titans had barely begun. Will follow zoo says he rebels against the titans after this? And now back to the story. Zeus had just left the isle of Crete wearing armor to protect him in his fight against the titans. Zeus was arrogant, but he saw how the nymphs advice had helped him. He decided he needed a counselor with even greater wisdom and soon was drawn to meet us a young titan as who was renowned for her cunning as well as her beauty. He found her on the lower hills of mount oath. Res gathering herbs from the rocky terrain made us you are as beautiful as they say. How do you know me it's impossible not to recognize one of the daughters of the titans? Do you not know me you too handsome to be a nature spirit? Clearly, and you have the air against of God, you are no titan. And yet you are foolish enough to come here to mount threes. What some call foolishness others, calm bravery. Us laughed at the young gods cockiness, but she couldn't help but be drawn to him. He was more handsome than anyone. She had ever seen with dancing is and powerful shoulders. She blushed as he moved closer his large frame towering over her. But she tried to hide her flustered state. It would take. But a moment for me to raise the alarm. Go ahead, then meet a stared at him. But made no move to alert. The titans. Why are you here? I've come for you, your reputation for cunning and wisdom as reached across the earth. And I am in need of an adviser. Do you know the prophecy of Uranus? At one day quotas would be overthrown by one of his children. You you are his son clever. Raya I didn't think she had it in her. I am destined to win. Now's your chance to join me as your adviser zoo smiled. He could see the desire, and the young tightness is is much as she tried to hide it and perhaps more. In a quiet ceremony on the island of Crete presided by the nymphs from his childhood Zeus took meet us as his first wife, she proved to be as cunning as he had heard giving him advice on all things war. What you need our allies comeback to bed. This is part of why you chose me as your wife is not focus allies. Yes. There's my mother and guy. No, you need warriors your brothers and sisters. They're trapped inside my father. You know that not for long I can make you a potion that would sicken krone forcing him to vomit up your siblings. You could do that. Would I suggest it if I couldn't the problem is how to give it to him only? His Cup bears have access to his wine. But I'm sure I can arrange something. With medicines help zoo snuck onto mount oath, res disguised as a servant of his father's court as a Cup bearer Zeus was positioned to the side of his father's throne. No one paid any attention to him. No one even knew who he was Zeus bristled slightly at this fact, he was a proud young God and part of him had thought even hoped that his parents would recognize him as soon as he walked into their great throw room at the top of mount. Oh, three. But then of course, the plan would have been ruined as he waited for his opportunity to strike Zeus raised his is slightly. So that he could look at cronies and Raya he wanted to know if there was any family resemblance in his father Zeus recognized his own proud nose and on his mother's face his own piercing, blue eyes Zeus. Watched as his mother started to rise out of her seat and cronies grabbed her arm Raya flinched as krona's yanked her back down and the chatter around them died from moment as the rest of the titans watched Zeus zone grip around the golden wine jug, he was carrying tightened and the metal bent under his powerful hands. He fought the urge to come to his mother's aid knowing that he needed to play the long game. Now. Zeus cursed the rest of the titans for their weakness. If they had stood against his father earlier things never would have come to this point Zeus himself could have been raised in the arms of his mother and grown up playing among his fellow gods is my wine Zeus frowned. He had led his mind wander and missed krona signal. Now, he had drawn attention to himself. The last thing he was supposed to do the young God quickly walked to his father's side. His head bent slightly as a sign of subservience Zeus kept his gaze on the blood red wine as he poured it into krona's goblet the poison had dissolved and it completely just as meat Metesz promised. It would urine newcomer zoo started at the sound of his mother's voice. It was soft almost flute like and he stared back into her is the mirror of his own. Yes. I've just arrived from Crete. Something flashed across Ray. As is or perhaps Zeus was just imagining it next to her cronies downed the glass of wine in one gulp and held out his goblet again Zeus refilled it with a slight wave of his hand. Krona sent Zeus back to his position Zeus returned to his earlier position and glanced at his father the poison would do its work quickly soon. The throne and the universe would be his cronies raised his hand to his mouth Zeus watched as a vein on the side of krona says neck pulsed, suddenly krona sputtered thick globs of wine and blood shooting out of his mouth and onto the white marble of the throne room floor around him the other titans gasped and stepped back. They'd never seen. N- their leader sick for even a moment zoo smiled and stepped forward. He wasn't quite sure what would happen, but meet us had promised results. Raya also moved toward cronies her eyes wide with horror. However, krona's was clearly beyond aid. He stood then staggered forward. Spasms course from his pelvis through his throat. He Sankt his knees foam spilling from the sides of his mouth. He retched blood and bile pooling on the white stones his jaw stretched wide, then cracked krona's. Let out a mighty scream as his bones shifted unnaturally his mouth becoming a gaping hole his jaw unhinged. Like snakes for a moment. There was silence as the rest of the titans stared and Raya froze behind her. Husband, then krona spasm d- and a bundle wrapped in cloth. Burst from his throat as it fell into the pool of blood, the cloth opened revealing a stone inside next hand peeled around the corner of krona says mouth from krona's now cavernous neck, a figure jumped out it leaped onto the marble and seemed to unfurl growing and expanding as it did another figure emerged from krona's than another and another until five figures stood in the middle of the marble growing and taking shape though, they had been trapped inside of cronies their bodies were clean and perfect. Their features beautiful and strong cronies himself. Let out a great whoosh of air as though a wind was passing through him as the light faded from his eyes Zeus. Stepped forward and grabbed his hair forcing his father to look up at him know that I am Zeus your youngest son, and your death has come at my hands. A small cry escaped Ray as lips and cronies collapsed. Zeus turned to regard the five gods that had emerged from krona's his siblings demeanor. Hades Hera Hess Jada and Poseidon stood in the center of the throne room. The titans were in disarray. But the younger gods were outnumbered. Brothers sisters, follow me. We must retreat. Now, if we want to be victorious in the end Zeus turned and led the way off of mount oh, three his siblings. Followed him as shouts of alarm were raised among the titans. After the zoo. Swiftly led the way down the craggy rocks of mount oath re's and into the forest below. He wasn't sure what condition is siblings would be in. But they easily kept up with him. He watched as they stretched their limbs and marveled at the beauty of the world around them. Zeus led the way up a secret of path to a hidden clearing at the top of Mount, Olympus, the tallest mountain in Greece. Where Metesz was waiting Zeus embraced his wife as he burst from the tree line his brothers and sisters just behind him, get them. They're perfect. Do you know your own name? Jamaica was the first born then I hate as was next then Hera hysteria and finally Poseidon we are safe from the titans for now. But they'll be on the hunt. Our father imprisoned you and stole our birthright as children the unit. Verse rightfully belongs to us. You have set us free. We shall follow your lead. We'll arrest tonight than struck against the titans tomorrow there leaderless surprised we should catch them off balance. And then we'll be in for a long battle Zeus is early military leadership. Set the stage for his later rule as king of the gods. This progression of authority suggests that dualistic understanding of leadership in Greek society as determined both by fate and competency, a prophecy for tells oozes rule his birth. Order allows him to be the one saved from krona's Ma and his inherent ability to lead was one built into his character by the fates that shape personality, however, Zeus is also the best suited for leadership and his actions reflected choice to manifest his inherent skill when tasked with responsibilities. Zeus rises to the occasion. He frees his siblings from the grip of tyranny escorts them to safety and inspires them to fight these inherent qualities and chosen actions represent the type of leadership, the Greeks admired in their own rulers and Seuss's story was meant to serve as a template for the human kings who ruled beneath him yet much like many actual kings zoo still had to fight a war to gain the crown. The young gods. Slept on the top of Mount Olympus, the stars ice cold above them Zeus lay next to meet us, though. He couldn't help but admire the beauty of his sisters, particularly the dark haired Hera as the dawn rose meet us turned to her husband. Did you sleep? No. You know, the prophecy. The battle may be long, but you're destined to win. So everything's determined by fate. Even I a God can do nothing to change. It you want to change your destiny just mean what if there's some step by fail to take the titans are strong, and where outnumbered suddenly zoo stiffened he crept to the edge of the clearing following the sound of far off footsteps only audible to his immortal ears behind him. Haiti's also awakened and snuck over to join him to tighten scout. Let's let's chase them down. No will lie in wait. We can't risk them getting away reporting position back to mount threes in another minute. The two titans. A woman and a younger man appeared around a huge white boulder. Zoo sprang onto the man pinning him to the ground while Hades pulled the woman's arms behind her back. She shrieked my son, and I come in peace. We're here to join. You lies throw them off the nearest cliff. Who are you? Meet us appeared followed by the rest of the gods. Zeus this fem is the tightness of Justice and her son. They wish to join us in our fight against krona's. Can they be trusted for now? Prove your loyalty. What news can you? Tell us from mount threes krona's has survived but his weakened your mother stays with him. I think she feels too guilty to leave. Atlas taken over as the leader. He is a strong command. Or so I hope you've started your preparations don't worry about that. The Olympia are well prepared the young gods armed themselves with weapons meet us had stashed in the clearing demeanor. And Hess GIO were not inclined to battle, but still pledged to fight alongside their brothers Hera though picked up a sword with an excited gleam in her eye. Zeus admired her passion the Olympia NHS trucked back across the rocky terrain toward mount. Oh three and the titans Zeus hope to catch the titans in the midst of their preparations for battle. But as they reached the edge of the forest below mount oath re's zoo spotted a cloud of dust moving toward him at less had managed to get the titans into fighting shape more quickly than Zeus had hoped. The titans bed toward the gods with the six gods were the titans, meet us Prometheus and themm s but. They were still outnumbered. There were twenty titans from two generations facing them led by atlas the strongest of the titans and deity of strana Amee with a clanging of metal that sent shockwaves through the earth. The titans and Olympia NHS met. Mighty Zeus battled. Atlas and his brother meniscus together while Haiti's emphasized in the strongest of his siblings also took on to titans at once Zeus manage to draw blood from his titan, foes, which colored the earth crimson beneath them, however the wounds quickly healed as immortals both the titans and the Olympia NHS could tire and be wounded, but not be permanently injured pain and exhaustion plagued. Both sides pushing them to the limits of endurance. Poseidon? Sword was the first to break their weapons couldn't keep up with the strength of the gods who bore. Them with the yell Oshii. Ennis titan Lord of the seas swung his sword toward Poseidon exposed head with no weapon beside raised his forearm and a desperate attempt to block the blow with a sickening crack Poseidon arm split Zeus dared to glance away from his own battle and saw his brother's hand swinging by attendant Zeus threw his shield in the face of the oncoming meniscus. Then stepped back surveying the field. The Olympia were clearly losing they continued to raise their arms to protect themselves. But it was only a matter of time before the titans would be able to round them up fury, and despair rose up inside Zeus threatening to choke him. He was destined to overthrow the titans. So what was he doing wrong? He yelled out words, he thought he'd never say retreat. Fall-back the rest of the Olympics followed Zeus back into the forest.

In their first battle the titans had overwhelmed the younger Olympia NHS Zeus was forced to abandon his brothers and sisters to take on a dangerous mission to tartar us, the deepest abyss in the world as he neared it. The forest cleared. No trees grew near the edges of us and no animals would approach zoo. Slowed for a moment at the side of the canyon a black gash through the earth. He didn't know how the heck it on curious and Cyclopes would react to being freed. He only knew kronas his father and urine us his grandfather had imprisoned the creatures forever. But these great beasts were his only chance at winning the war. He scaled the walls down into the abyss dropping further and further into the earth. Finally, he reached the base of the pit ahead of him lay. What looked like a solid wall? But is he peered at it? He could see a thin line forming the shape of a doorway the gate to tartar s he could barely wedges fingers into the cracks. But he began to pull with all his might just when he thought his muscles might give out. He heard a creek and the rock began to move from behind it. He could hear excited yells, then he felt the rock move. Again. The prisoners were pushing the rock. From the inside Zeus redoubled his efforts and the rock slid back, exposing yawning gap in front of him Zeus hurriedly peered into the darkness Zeus as a son of krona sigh of raised up my hand against him. Join me and you'll have your chance to take vengeance. Upon your oppressors will you fight in chosen war a sickly white shape appeared out of the gloom with a single round is staring at Zeus krona's promised mother guy. He would set us free. But instead he trapped us inside our prison for another millennia. How do we know you'll be any different the other two Cyclopes joined their brother their skin glowing ghoulish Lee in the dark each had crude mouths that looked like slits cut into thick hide spittle hanging at the corners of their lips. Mas. I'm grunting you your freedom. Now if you fight with us. Us. It will be by choice behind the Cyclopes ahead appeared, then another and another the heck Thanh curious appeared next to the cyclops. They're fifty heads were supported by necks that weaved through the air like snakes questing towards Zeus. Like, they were searching for his sent all of the heads spoke at once giving its voice a clear echo that reverberated in the pit. He looks like. The trace. Fine. Then I will not deg for your help. I'm a soon return to the battle your freedom is yours to do with as you wish. Zeus turned and began the climb back up the walls of tartar s hoping his gambit had worked. He could hear the low grumbling of the Cyclopes and the heck curious conferring behind him. We'll fight with you under one condition. Name it after we crush the titans. You imprison them this pit, and we become their church leaders. It will be a pleasure to wash them in the same prison where they abandoned us done. Now, we must hurry back to Mount Olympus. The titans may already be there and my brothers and sisters need our help not so fast. The titans are powerful foes, you will need weapons we had weapons. They failed us the Smiths who forged those weapons failed. You. We will not do the same Zeus watched in frustration as. As the Cyclopes tore metal or from the sides of tartar s knowing that every second they wasted might mean his siblings defeat. His concern was justified back above ground. The titans had discovered the younger gods hideout on Mount Olympus, the Olympics had the advantage of a better position. But the titans outnumbered them where is we can't hold them off much longer as Haiti spoke. He heard a scream he dared a glance to his right where he saw his sister Hera trapped under a giant boulder. Atlas stood on top of it urging the other titans to join him Haiti's braced himself as atlas spotted him. The titans and the Olympia NHS had loan since dropped their useless weapons fighting now with their bare hands and any rocks. They could lay their hands on at liss leapt across the clearing and onto Haiti's chest Haiti's felt the air leave his body as he hit the earth so hard that a small crater formed. Atlas lunch. Towards Haiti's neck and Hades frantically tried to hold him back as atlas and Hades fought demeanor. Tried to push the boulder off of Hera who was the best fighter of the young goddesses Hera yelled at her sister to leave her but demeanor refused with demeanor focus on her sister. She failed to notice the rock sailing at her head she fell to the ground her skull split into the other Olympia NHS were faring just as badly without Zeus. They had no chance against the titans. It was only a matter of time before they would all be incapacitated by their wounds Haiti's exhausted muscles began to fail him. And atlas found his grip around the young gods throat. If you want to feel the breath of life again, you will you Oshii NS and hype eerie on stepped onto Haiti's arms, pinning them to the. Ground you fought bravely? But your little rebellion is over Haiti's could barely hear the words of the titan on top of him. His vision grew dark, and he knew the battle was done. Ablaze of white light filled his sight, and he felt the pressure around his neck, loosen. He gasped for air and sat up on the edge of the mountain. Top stood Zeus a glowing lightning bolt in his hand. Behind Zeus stood the most monstrous beings he'd ever seen the single eyed Cyclopes and the hundred armed Heckert on curious. The titans backed up shocked by the appearance of the monsters. They thought condemned to tartar us eighties. Perhaps you can use this Zeus tall stayed as a helmet as Hades put it on. He looked down at his body shocked to see disappear he had become invisible and for a Trident capable of commanding, the winds Poseidon raise the Trident in his right hand and wind began. To swirl around him forming into a cyclone Zeus raised his thunderbolt it crackled into the sky drawing energy down from the heavens. The titans gasped in fear and stepped back toward the edges of the clearing. Zeus heaved the Thunderball directly at atlases heart. The titan commander flew back with a choke scream his charred body lay twitching on the ground. Smoke pouring off of him Zeus raised his hand and the thunderbolt reappeared in his palm the rest of the Olympia NHS leapt up reinvigorated by their brothers return. The heck Itam as immediately proved their worth tossing the boulder off of Hera, then each seized a hundred rocks in their hundred arms and sent a barrage of Stony missiles at their titan foes. Zeus bore down on hype eerie on this. He scrambled away. He avoided one thunderbolt, but the second found its Mark leaving high period and spasms of pain on scorched earth Haiti's darted between the other titans dodging there have hazard blows with ease as they tried to fight a man they could not see Poseidon KADO Sheehan anisette a cyclone trapping him in mid air Zeus stood over atlas. There is only one way for your pain to win titan say the words you. We. A cry went up from the other Olympia ins on the Cyclopes Bello their approval. The Olympia NHS escorted the titans into tartar s with the exception of their allies premium and thymus the Cyclopes fashioned a gate to keep them inside the pit and the Heckert on Cuba's gleefully took up their station outside of it. But at list did not join his brothers and sisters their Zeus had a special punishment in mind for him. He took atlas to the edge of the earth and forced him under the mantle of the sky forever condemned to hold the weight of the Cosmo's on his back. Zeus had only one more task to complete alone. He trekked back to the top of mount oath threes there in the Royal bedchamber, he found krona's lying in bed drained of energy, his skin loose and saggy around his bones next to him said Raya looking drawn and worried as Zeus entered the room Raya sprang to her feet with a gasp. She took a tentative step towards him. My son have you are you have defeated. The titans mother. I'm here to set you free tears streamed down Ray as cheeks and she fell to her knees in front of Zeus Zeus tenderly drew her up. You'll never kneel to anyone again mother. As for him. He turned toward his father krona's is though sunken still gleamed with malice at his youngest, son. Go the prophecy was right along evil ungrateful child, but Zeus on the laughed at his father's hypocritical. Spite mother, my siblings are anxious to meet you at Mount Olympus. I just have to make one more trip to Tartus. The heck at tonk curious are looking forward to seeing you again krona's. After he had imprisoned his father and tartar s with the other titans Zeus returned to his new home on Mount, Olympus, where Metesz pulled him aside. My husband my king. You'll be the finest ruler the universe has ever seen perhaps. Meaning I won't rule as my father and grandfather did my brothers fought has bravely as I did against the titans. So why should I commend them? One of us will take dominion over the seas one over the underworld and one over the skies and that one will be the God of gods. Surely, you'll be the ruler of the skies. Then we'll see it depends on what the dice se dice you plan to roll a pair of dice to decide who will be the God of gods zoo smiled at his cunning wife, how else to break the pattern of time. Parents that have ruled over the universe before now. But you can't my wife. You've always given me. Excellent advice, we wouldn't be here without you. But I'm afraid this is one occasion where you won't be able to change my mind and so- Zeus Poseidon and Hades roll the pair of dice to decide who would rule over which dominion Poseidon became the God of the seas Hades the God of the underworld and Zeus the God of the skies and ruler of the gods. The earth was left as common ground while the other gods were assigned roles based on their strengths Hera became the goddess of women and childbirth.

Sat in the center while around him were five other thrones for his siblings, the old gods had been conquered. And the rule of the new gods had just begun. The midst of the titan nominee symbolizes the transfer of power and significance from an old generation to the new one both Uranus. And then cronies try to resist the inevitable and therefore taken down in violence serving as a lesson to all those who fight the rise of the next generation perhaps more significantly this transfer of power symbolizes a transfer of ideals from failed civilization to the hopeful foundation of new one around eight hundred BC the Mycenaean civilization that had dominated the area during the bronze age faced economic and political collapse leading to agree. Shen dark age defined by nomadic living and widespread. Illiteracy this collapse of civilization led to a political vacuum that allowed the rise of a new civilization around seven fifty BC. Specifically, the rise of what we now consider ancient Greece. This civilization was a complete reformation of the prior order with the Greeks even going so far as to adopt, a new alphabet and establish higher prominence of the younger gods, aka the Olympia NHS over the gods of the older civilizations aka the titans. The titan war was not just a war between the gods. It was a war. The people were fighting within themselves as they attempted to abandon the old. They're hopefulness drove them to build something new and something they believed could be better. This hope came to fruition as they established a new political order centered around democracy, rather than one centered around royalty these ancient cities, still possessed kings, and queens, but their powers were more limited than ever before. This was reflected in the fact that the God of gods Zeus chose to split his power.

Just like our parents. In nineteen sixty eight twenty five year old Dwayne took a labor job on a road maintenance crew, mccook, Nebraska. Introducing him to herald Nokes despite their fifteen year age difference. The men had similar interests and became close friends. Introducing their wives socially twenty five year old k and thirty nine year old also connected. The both worked in downtown mccook and would often have lunch together. The couple started going out to dinner and dancing as well as taking camping trips K was never much of an outdoors woman. But she tolerated. These excursions to be closer to herald Nokes, she was increasingly attracted to the older man as her feelings towards Dwayne continued to cool and on new years nineteen seventy K told herald of her interest. K love to dance as to Wayne swished her around the floor of the decorated elks club. She took stock of the rest of the couples present she was definitely the prettiest woman here and the best dancer, she show off even more. If her husband was a more competent partner, he could barely spend her without entangling their arms doing was handsome in his tux, but useless with his feet. She watched Harold an EMA across the room. They're mismatch tight made them. Look like a cartoon couple the way herald towered over his wife made them unsuited to most of the more complicated dance steps, but they may do. When the band took a break k into Wayne reunited with the other couple at a table in offend herself. In complained all the dancing was making her sweat herald quickly leapt up to fetch his wife, drink and k twinge with jealousy.

What a block head when the music started again, Enid declined her husband's arm. Her feet were tired K hopped up to take her place. Instead, she was more than happy to keep herald company on the dance floor and lever own husband's two left feet behind. He handily lead K through her best steps, they moved to the center of the dance floor and soon the other couples were circled around watching then the music suddenly stopped again. It was almost midnight. Inonu Wayne join their spouses in preparation of the new year K felt like Cinderella. As prince charming was replaced with Dwayne the pumpkin the crown chanted account down five four K took a step away from her husband to be closer to herald three two. She tapped Harold on the shoulder. One happy new year K leaned in and kissed herald slips to her surprise, he kissed back even the nineteen seventy even Frasca a New Year's kiss between friends wasn't out of the ordinary.

A little over a month after New Year's Eve K white hind called herald Nokes she needed to talk to him about something important. He picked her up from work than after noon.

A ninety the affair according to psychologists Douglas sloppier. There are six common types of extramarital affairs for K. This was most likely in our show you affair aimed at retaliating against her husband, Wayne who she felt hadn't shown her. The proper amount of attention for years in this type of affair, the anger and resentment towards one spouse isn't dealt with simply overshadowed by the new relationship, and in some cases, those feelings can shift to the new partner over time. Herald later told law enforcement that k was a hard woman to satisfy who enjoyed a variety of sexual experiences by March of nineteen seventy they were meeting each other weekly at various hotels and rest stops and south Nebraska. Despite their age difference. Twenty eight year old Kay started to fall in love with forty three year old herald as the affair continued over the next several months she began fantasizing about sharing a life with him having a real relationship. This was no longer just an affair. But true love herald was always quick to talk her down. They had responsibilities to their spouses EMA and Wayne. In nineteen seventy one K divorced herself from those responsibilities at that time Nebraska did not have a no fault divorce option meaning K had to prove acts of extreme cruelty. On Wayne's part. K turned to her parents for help case parents, Edwin and Wilma where lifelong Nebraska's and generally salt of the earth, people N when grew up on a farm and always kept a piece of land to work through his life. Even if only part time Wilma was a doting mother to her five children and an even more attentive grandmother and went in Wilma love to go fishing together and attend pinochle parties. Cain was always more reliant on her parents than the other four siblings. Perhaps because K was the last one to feed her maternal. Dr Wilma could never resist an urge to help her daughter. She could be classified as an enabler. Her two ks manipulative behaviour, according to Dr Jeffrey Bernstein, this relationship dynamics stems from parents who want to be needed. They want their child to be happy on his own yet. They live in fear of not doing enough to help their child. Get their Wilma's entire world was her children and grandchildren at the time of k into Wayne's divorce hearing, neither of the Hoyts had any inkling of the affair with herald Nokes.

Argus didn't know how long did languished in the dark, the cold rock pressed in on all sides, stifling any attempt to sit comfortably or even stand to his full height, his one eye, which could see even in the dentist moonlight was useless in the utter blackness of this pit. It was lonely. It was stifling. It was cold. Any attempts had communication with his brothers was smothered by the earth around them, and all he heard from them was a near constant Groan of pain from a hundred and fifty two mouths. This was tartar us. This was where their father had sealed them away, and then when they thought they were free their half brother cronies had returned them to this hell for the crime of existing. He was so like their father, but something was different. The walls had begun to shift. Argus could feel the world outside changing. Cronos, is that you what fresh Tormenta, you're going to inflict on your own kid. Hi, bring you know torment. I bring a chance to be free of this prison. Your not cronies, but I am your kin. The ceiling split above them and the cyclops phospholipids, his visions swallowed by stinging sunlight, even when his eyes had adjusted, he found the new arrival difficult to look at. He shone like the Sun divine power, unlike any artist had seen among the titans, the two other cyclopes, and the three hundred handed ones rose to their feet to stare at this newcomer. You look like a Titan what? What would you want from us to Taunt us with freedom? Perhaps no, my brother I offer it to you. If you fight beside me, we will never fight alongside the titans.

Today's the beginning of our mythology father's Day special. Over the next two weeks we'll explore the theme of Fatherhood Through Two of the most infamous patriarchs in the Greek Pantheon that is the story of Zeus and his father. The Titan Kronos. This iconic story poses an interesting philosophical question is our mortality the only thing that allows our children to take our place or is succession from parent to offspring inevitable even if we live forever. The? Age of the titans has been called a golden age, but in truth little is known about it. It was modeled after Mycenaean Greece a culture whose records are shrouded in mystery. Their civilization collapsed suddenly around the late thirteenth century. BC E, this mysterious cataclysm is the historical basis for the transition from titanic rule to that of the Olympia NHS within this transition. The story of Christmas is one of the most frequently retold bad father stories. Stories in all of antiquity, it's even been told once before on this podcast in our episode on the Titan Ahmici, and yet despite their enormity within culture. Much of what we know about the titans stems from a single poem, the theology, a work attributed to the poet, he said, dated sometime in the mid seven hundred, BC, the events of the war between the Gods and the titans are somewhat big and penned in broad strokes by scholars. The role of certain titans in this conflict has been left entirely up to the imagination, including the one who is often cited as the father of humanity. The world was changed. The young Titan Premier Theus had not been there to witness it, but it was impossible to miss that day. The Cosmos shook and it felt like the very sky was about to split into. Soon whispers reached prometheus about what had happened how his uncle cronies had castrated the sky. God, urine us with a Saif crafted by Gaya the earth mother he figured it was for the best urine, had grown old and distant uncaring towards creation. His fall was inevitable premiered. theus was unsurprised when Krona's failed to make good on his promise to guy, leaving the cyclopes and Hege tonkery in their prison cronies was to like their father to make the world entirely different, the other titans loved him. They rampaged through the fields, sea and sky, reveling in their dominion over the Earth, but where his brothers wanted to use their time to indulge their passions, Prometheus wanted to create using. Using clay from the earth he sculpted a form like the titans in appearance, but cruder and more fragile. A short-sighted God might have considered it a failure premie theus saw the art in these imperfections he let them wander the earth, and to his amazement they did not die off. They thrived developing a civilization that mirrored their heavenly forebears. He was delighted he had to show his creation to the king of the titans when he found Krona's. The Great Titan was not in his palace, he stood in a field of wheat, swinging his side, wildly carving a path through the grain, the blood of urine us was still dry upon the blade, giving it a dull purple hue. excuse me mighty grownups. Are you busy? Would you want remedious I'd like you to observe the creature I have made. It is unique among our subjects in them. I have mixed elements of immortal beings into a moral form, truly extraordinary work. If I do, say so myself. You will soon learn that there is little joy to be gained from creation. Your ambition is admirable. You are only creating another being to bias. You don't like it, do not despair will be theiss. We need no new subjects. We are all powerful these last few years. I have even defeated destiny. Prometheus knit his brow in confusion. He had heard rumors of the fate urine. His head prophesied for his youngest son that he would one day give birth to children who would overthrow him in turn. Prometheus was taken aback at the lengths that his uncle would go to ensure. That didn't happen. Uncle. I am impressed. That must require. Great restraint restraint to not lie with Raya for surely the only way to prevent your children from taking your throne is to not have children and. You are clever and nephew, but far too narrow minded, retaining the greatest thrown in the history of existence requires greater sacrifice than that. Then you still. What did you do cronies? But cronies would not answer turning to continue hacking away at the wheat sweat formed on his torso, evaporating in a plume of steam of feeling of dread, crept down the younger titans spine as he watched his uncle go about his work. Something was wrong with the king of the titans with each swing of the side, the muscles along his entire form rippled, and beneath them his belly was warped and distended. It did not look like the natural swell one gained from a feast, but something far more grotesque, the titans lower abdomen was bloated like a spider's Egg sac and writhed if something inside was fighting to escape. Prometheus bound hurriedly turned and ran ran as fast as his feet would carry him. He would discover the truth of what had happened. The other titans would not have interfered, but premiered. theus was the Titan of foresight. His sense of the future was greater than any of his kin. Whenever cronies had done with his children could spell doom for them all. The doors of the palace stood a jar for a terrible moment premiered. theus thought that the Queen of the titans might not be at home if she did not want to be found a search for her would be fruitless, even for Titan as clever as he, he slipped inside letting his feet a light gently in the entrance hall, the Chamber Seemed Empty, and as silent as the void premier theus would've left without seeing anyone if a single Saab had not reached his ears. Prometheus turned at the sound and saw shape crouching in the darkest corner of the room. A female figure curled into a ball. He barely recognized Raya in truth. He had never seen her look so small. He bowed deeply. My Queen. Forgive me for disturbing you these neat be permit theus. I have no time for your flights of fancy today. I do not come for myself. I heard something was amiss and came to see if my council could offer any relief you seem. Upset. Do not presume so titan of trickery. Rose to her feet suddenly so tall that her head nearly reached the arched ceiling, premie knelt before her, not out of fear, but out of respect for the mighty tightness. This was the queen he knew her to be. Something had to be seriously amiss for her to hide her true form. Until now he continued to talk choosing his words carefully as he dared. I spoke to Krona's Today. I surmise that you needed a more sympathetic ear. Do you think you know our minds that you were clever? Enough to anticipate the thoughts of the King and Queen of the universe I know about the prophecy radio of course you do. Everyone does. Krona's all powerful. He will overcome any challenger. No matter how great I have no agenda I merely want to know what krona stood with your children. Raise face was like a mask, but in her eyes prometheus saw her emotions fighting to the surface like drowning men. Please tell me what became of the Children Justin to overthrow him. I promise you what you tell me will never reach your husband. You do not wish to know I. Do you know how I love puzzles? What is a prophecy, but a puzzle designed by fate itself? Perhaps. Is a puzzle for you. A riddle for the great mind of Prometheus. How does a husband become pregnant? After his wife has given birth? I! Do not, know. By Ver- eating. Premie theus swayed on his feet. It explained everything the horrible roiling of his uncle's belly, his words about sacrifice. Of course he felt all powerful. He had sealed his faded successor inside his immortal. Premier theus always thought Krona's a cruel ruler. Could imprison the cyclopes and tonkery is the way he had, but this was beyond what premiere theus thought any being was capable of the horror caused his own stomach to turn. He had to know he had to know what led. Krona's to such a grizzly course of action. Coming Up Raya reveals the fate of her children. What if a chance encounter changed what you believe to be true, a seemingly ordinary moment opening your eyes to extraordinary secrets and other worldly beings, not God's not humans something other.

Raya Queen of the Titans was not used to confiding in those she deemed lesser than herself for most of her immortal life she would answer to no one except cronies, her husband and king, but he was no longer worthy of her confidence when she began to tell her story to her nephew permit. Yes, a strange feeling spread through her form. Relief of all the titans, perhaps the crafty and perceptive premier theus would understand which she had gone through and what she planned to do. You remember the day I'm sure. When his blade bitten to our father's loins, it felt like he would tear through the sky itself like nothing so momentous. Whatever happened again? You bother to saw. No you father to none. I still hear the pain screams of our father echoing on the wind. But it had to be done. For our mothers sake. For the sake of our brothers and Taurus. Raise jaw tensed. There were some parts of this story that she did not want. The younger Titan to know first of these was her own feelings at the time that when she saw her father flee to the heavens, she spared not a single thought for her imprisoned half brothers. She only thought of him. Cronos of how his power would be. There's to share. She had watched the sky father's era blood glint off his side, and had never desired a being more even as urine promise that cronies would be overthrown by his children. There was. No true happiness in our victory. A father's last words to us were not an impotent promise of Revenge Petty Final Insult. They were Moros. They were feet. I soon realized that cronies had not emasculated urine us for our mother sake. Not for our brothers and chains. He had done it for himself. The words rang hollow in Rao's mouth. How could she condemn Krona's for his self interest? When she too had reveled in his power and glory, she had no love for the monsters that you're in his head imprisoned. They were chaotic and wild beings, ugly to look at and crude of speech. They belonged underground. Her love for cronies overran all logic. It was more intoxicating than the. The finest Ambrosia, and when they're passion was at its peak, they would shake mount oath risk to its very roots. She hadn't forgotten the prophecy when the two of them came together as husband and wife, but in the face of such euphoria it seemed insignificant, a Spec on the horizon compared to how immensely satisfying, it was to be with the most powerful being in the universe. But as her ecstasy faded, doubt started to seep in part of her knew that this bliss would not go on forever, and the thought was sickening to her. They were immortal. Their power never end. Before she knew it she was pregnant with her first child, and against her better judgment, she felt hope growing in her chest. I was thrilled by the idea of being a mother so much so that I momentarily forgot who my husband was. He barely spoke about it, but he grew cold, more guarded. Until one night, he finally spoke his mind. How soon will the baby be born? Soon enough. What are you thinking? I'm wondering if there's room. Tartu risk for one more, you must be joking. Have known me to make idol just Raya. This baby will be dangerous to our rule. It cannot be allowed to roam free. We will give her a proper education teach Ho to respect her parents and she need never fear us. Like our father taught us. Do not compare yourself to father. Why ever not? I am doomed to his fate? He never saw you coming. Perhaps he would have changed his ways if he was four warned as you have been, this was not a warning. It was a prophecy. We are not talking about what could happen. What what will? I tire of this discussion. You cannot take our child to Charteris. If other, see you who knows what they will think. They may rise against you. And if the monsters you sealed and todd risk their hands on your child. They will poison her against. You was well. Getting rid of our child will do us no good. Would only ensure our fate. Krona's looked at her. And for the first time she recognized the emotion in his fiery is fear. He seemed to shrink before her. The Titan who's powerful arms had cut down the sky itself seemed a malnourished boy in her bed, uncertain, and far from ready to take on the responsibility of fatherhood. You are right. Sending the Child Way. Is Not an option. The memory brought fresh tears to raise is she had never told a soul about her hopes for the child, not even Krona's. She relied too much on his love for her. She blinked the tears away and folded her arms, turning her gaze to her listener. Prometheus wore a carefully guarded expression, not having, said a word during her entire story, a wise choice. Do, you know how it feels to misjudge someone you love Prometheus. I imagine not. Cronies and I had been raised side-by-side been both siblings and lovers to each other. I thought. I thought he was the greatest of titans. The only one of us who had no fear in him. But the truth about his kind of drink is that it is a performance. Put on by the week. When the child was born. I was relieved. The uncertainty was gone. Finally, we would be able to face the prophecy together and defeat our father once again. If only in spirit. Rail brought her hands to her belly. Instinctively childbirth from God is not painful in the way it is with mortals. It's an invigorating experience creating life, but it is just as exhausting. When Raya gave birth to her first child, she could barely stand laying on the floor of their bedchamber slick with sweat. She did not have the energy to go to their bed. Krona's loomed over her. At the time. All she saw in his eyes were the flames of the surrounding torches. She could not read his intent. Give her to me. You must rest. This is your father. Krona's. This is demeter. Beautiful like apparent, but she does not yet have our strength. Forgive me my love. I do this for us. Krona's lifted the child by her swatting clothes and stuffed her in his mouth. Raya screamed as the child's Chubby limbs fought against her father's jaw. For a brief moment it's squirmed against the sides of his mouth of vein in the titans forehead. As he forced his Josh shot his cheeks bulged horribly, and then he swallowed. The way. His throat stretched I thought the child was going to burst through and seven his head from his shoulder. But it was a newborn. She never had a chance. None of them did. Them. You mean yes. We have had five children. And he is swallowed them all. Premiered theus raised his hands to his head is wide with horror. Raya felt a flash of anger at the young Titan. He was looking at her like he would a monster, not a member of his own family. He had no right to look at her. This way for media could not possibly understand what it was like to love someone, even as you watched them grow foul and corrupt before your eyes. Don't you dare? Judge me nephew. Not, all of us will settle for children of clay. Yes, I lay with him again and Begat more children him, but if you knew the children were doomed, why have them? The Agony of losing? A child is great, but so too the ecstasy of having them to begin with. Perhaps. I believe that if I, did not falter, cronies would change his approach and become a father rather than an executioner. This cannot go on forever. It will not, and that is where I have need of you. And your tricks? What do you intend to do? I am with child again. When I go into Labor, I need. Krona's distracted long enough for guy to hide the child. His wrath will be great. I am no warrior. I cannot stand against him. Should he discover our scheme? Did I say I needed a warrior? If that were the case I would have called Atlas I need a titan who can outsmart cronies. Knows how to play on his pride. Flattery will not sway me my queen, then perhaps logic will. My child is fated to overthrow Croesus. Would you rather be on the winning side of this conflict? And maybe the new ruler will look more kindly on your. Humans! How soon will the baby be born within a fortnight? Go now before Krona's returns. Yes, my lady and Prometheus, yes, if you even think about betraying us, I will create a new health for you especially even deeper than tartars. With a bow premiered, theus left her sight, only three immortals knew about his plot Raya, Prometheus and her mother Guy, Raya had faith that the young Titan would not betray them. He too much faith in prophecy. Her baby squirmed inside her kicking the inside of her abdomen sharply. She winced. He was stronger than any of the others had been. Perhaps, there was hope for this child after all. Cronies had never felt so heavy with each new child he ingested his footsteps became like leaden weights as an immortal. He had no need to eat, but he hated that their presence inside his stomach denied him even that simple pleasure. The size cut into his knuckles as he squeezed the blade, he had no choice. They would have overthrown him somewhere deep within his being. He kept asking himself if it was worth it. If attornal rule was worth never ending discomfort, each step caused him considerable agony, he only experienced release when his children decided to sleep and when he was wrapped in the arms of his queen. Both occasions were growing increasingly rare rail looked at his warped gut with barely contained disgust and immortal children needed no sleep. He had taken to lifting entire mountains to see if he could build his strength enough that he could no longer feel the pain. Then maybe he could enjoy the pleasures of his rule again. The day of their sixth childbirth, birth came faster than Krona's expected. He was on his way back to mount. Oh Thrace, when he heard a child's cry, split the air, but as he quickened his pace, he found a figure blocking his path one that he desperately wanted to avoid. Move aside Prometheus by to see RIA, but my king I have great news. The humans are holding a festival in your honor of festival. Yes, you are their patron of the harvest. Given how much you use that site. It seemed fitting. So who am I to dissuade them? have no time for this. If you see how it feels to be worshiped, maybe you'll understand my experiment. I require no tribute beyond that of my fellow Titans your children or beneath me. They are but insects. But as the sweet smell of incense tickled his nostrils, even the resolute krona's founded hard to resist. It might be good for him to remember that someone recognized his rule that he was not devouring his own children for not. He would stay for one hour one hour only. The next morning and invigorated cronies arrived back in his palace, his ego, just as inflated as his arriving belly. When he entered his chambers, he was horrified to see Raya standing holding her infant in Swaziland close. Krona's felt his heart ache a little. She looked so happy cooing gently to the wrapped bundle in her arms. He thought it a mercy. how quickly he swallowed the others. He should part her with this one before her bond grew too strong. He strode across the room, and without so much as a greeting, snatched the child and gulped it down. The titans insides shivered for a brief moment he felt ill, and then his stomach settled into its usual squirming discomfort. Finally he brought his gaze to meet raise her stare, was ice cold and something about it made him worry like he had just made an enormous mistake. Up Next will follow what became of the child that escaped its father's appetite now back to the story. Zeus had never laid eyes on cronies, and his father always appeared in his dreams. The Titan took the form of a great shadow, looming over the tree tops no matter how desperately Zeus tried to hide the giant, always managed to reach down, and pluck him up as if it was picking a flower, its mouth opened wide, and Zeus would see down its gullet rows and rows of bodies that looked just like him, sliding down the monster's bloody gums, and into the abyss beyond then the mouth would close, and the dream would end in darkness. When he awoke, he was in a cave he'd spent most of his life in caves, hiding from the fatherhood, swallowed siblings to avoid his prophesied downfall, a fate that the hotheaded Zeus was now determined to bring about. The site him Laya female form naked. As he was eyelids fluttering in a dream without worry, mattis was the Titan of wisdom. His first wife and his first ally against Krona's zoo, stood and walked to the cave entrance where he looked out into the night. His waking hours were spent longing to confront the king of the universe and save his siblings, but in the dark his nightmares troubled him. What part of him was still afraid? What travels you my husband? Nothing. Even, the greatest warriors still feel fear. I am not a warrior I. Am a God a God who talks in his sleep. How do you think it will feel to sit on the throne of Krona's? When you have deposed him I could care less about his throne. My brothers and sisters languished in his Gut I. Would see them free, and my mother would see her freed as well I would see her answer for her own crimes, but. Raya sacrifice so much that you would not join your siblings doing so. She sacrificed her duties as a mother. She says much stranger to me as my father was. Do not judge her so harshly. I think she would be proud of you. She will rejoice to see how you have grown. were, was she like? She was. Strong. But not in the way your father was her power came from a deeper place, when in the same room with her, every titan could feel the depth of her love if we had the strength to meet her gaze. She held within her an ocean feeling that would drown any interloper and dash their ships to ruin. If Krona's was a sword arm. She was the shoulder behind it swing. Why did she not abandon him? If she was so powerful, he would have followed her to the ends of the Earth. To leave him would be to sacrifice you as well. She made the hard choice for both your sakes, the sooner I can be my father. The better remember we use my plan I. Then we fight of course my love. I have been hiding for so much of my life. I know not what it'll be like to be known at all. Do you think you'll be able to handle the attention? We'll find out tomorrow. We Meta slid her hand over her husband's wealth formed. He allowed himself a small sigh at her gentle touch, but his mind was elsewhere tomorrow he was to infiltrate a banquet at his father's hall. If her potion worked Zeus would not be fighting alone, but if it did not, he would likely spend all of eternity at the mercy of a vengeful father, and his nightmare would become a reality. Krona's despised their new cup bearer. He was slow and clumsy, clearly not used to the task of serving God's, but then again cronin found himself despising most things these days the gods growing inside him hurt more with each passing year, and the constant strain meant that he couldn't relax even for a moment, and after their sixth child Raya refused his bed, letting him sleep, bloated and miserable on his throne, instead for almost twenty years, this had gone on. He was sure the other titans noticed he caught their furtive looks and whispers when they thought he wasn't looking. Their king had become a warped and grotesque version of himself. He knew they were all thinking it. Even he felt revulsion at his engorged gut, which could not be contained by any girdle, due to it's constant wriggling. He did his best to hide his collapsed frame beneath heavy black robes. He told himself that he could handle the whispers of his fellow titans. He just wished Raya would stop treating him with such cruel indifference. Here you are my Lord. In the future. Go quickly when your master. You have being such a layup out. Does my Lord need anything else? I will need more. Why in a moment so don't go. You there. Yes Lord Krona's. Did you find that one? He's a terrible cup bearer. He hails from the Isle of Crete. My Lord, the son of a miner, Titan, in. If I'm not mistaken. Curse. Distant relatives. With each generation, the PELOTA titans grows even thinner. You do well to marry someone who can give you mighty children. So you don't end up with offspring like that. Oh, I am the goddess of wisdom my Lord. I need council on whom I marry. Wisdom delay. Than, do you know where that bloody for premisses? Tricks Jews are always making my life difficult. Now. He didn't even deign to show his face. I know not. Shall I ask Raya for you. Cronies grimaced and went back to his wine. He could not tell if his defiant cousin meant anything by the comment, but he did not feel like punishing disobedience today all he felt like doing was drinking until his stomach would settle for an hour or two, he finished the glass and called for another finally, taking the whole jug in his hands. The drink seemed to be working faster than usual already he could feel a pleasant numbness work its way through his belly for the first time in decades he led his shoulders, relax and lay back in the chair. His swollen gut lay still over his is. The relief was only momentary. Suddenly he seized up in agony, radiating from his stomach outward, it felt like all the beings in his belly were swirling around a world pool, sending waves of nausea, rolling up his throat. He opened his mouth to cry for some Ambrosia. But instead of words a hand forced its way out an arm, followed slender, female and strong. Krona's choked attempting to it back down, but it was no use. Another arm pushed its way through soon he was on all fours, gagging and bombing as one by one, his adult children crawled up his throat, his jaw, unhinged with a horrible cracking sound, and he barely noticed the pain as each new figure gave a new wave of relief to his long suffering insides between heaves. He looked up to see his cupbearer standing above him, no longer demur, but radiant and proud, looking down on him with an expression. That was all too familiar. To. WHO, are you? would. Have you done to me? You did this to yourself. Bother. You. Why? As he struggled to get the word out. A rough object blocked his windpipe with a final wretch. He puked it onto the ground as well. It was a rock wrapped in Swat. Alling close krona's collapsed face first panting heavily his stomach spread in loose flaps of skin around his waist line, like he had melted partly into the floor, the titans stood in shock around this deflated creature they called their king, and they looked to the new gods, standing proud and unblemished in spite of their gruesome upbringing. Krona's saw his children stand for just a moment before they turned and fled the armies of Mount Oh Thrace in pursuit soon, he was alone in his palace, breathing heavily in a pool of his own sick. All his efforts had been for. Not his reign was at an end. The war between the Gods and titans had begun. In ancient Greek Lore Gods were not meant to be aspirational figures after all. If the gods were perfect, the world would be a utopia, the imperfect world that humanity lived in required imperfect God's to explain it. The personalities of the Greek gods are as volatile as the elements. They represent meaning that in a way the Olympian Pantheon is the original dysfunctional family, and though we know about, says attempts to stave off his own demise, very little information about the world under the titans exists of all the epic poems. The war of the Gods and the Titans only he sees the Ogoni survives. Because of this a certain `nigma shrouds many of the titans. A number of the original twelve titans are just names listed on family tree without personality, or their divine powers specified even cronies, who is the most developed Titan of the whole bunch is something of an enigma compared to his offspring. All the theology tells us is that he was brave or ambitious enough to cut down the Sky God urine s, but did not have the courage to face his own fate, and after he is deposed by Zeus. He vanishes from mythology. Save for the occasional reference. Unlike other titans such as atlas and Prometheus, his punishment is not deemed notable enough to record in later myths. Perhaps it's given greater weight in the lost epic poem Tito Mahia, detailing the war between the Gods and the titans, but we never know for sure in spite of the holes in this story, the tragedy of Krona's has a powerful matic core that resonates to this day. The future is uncertain to all and the idea that we will be supplanted by our daughters and sons as time marches inexorably forward is a terrifying one. CRONOS's take can be seen as an allegory for older generations who try to hold onto relevance power long after their time has passed even to the point. Point of ensuring their own demise, and it's telling the the most famous artwork depicting the Titan shows him not as a king, but as a monster, the untitled painting often called Saturn devouring his son, depicts Titan, monstrously devouring his own son, as his wild eyes stare outward Francisco. GOYA's brushstrokes make the figure look, depraved and ghoulish, his cannibalistic meal a gory mess. This artwork reflects a cultural transformation of the Krona Smith from Renaissance Paintings, showing his triumph over urine us to this graphic oil painting, showing his terror at being overthrown, and even as he was imprisoned in Charteris or the Cave of Knicks depending on which account you prefer. The fear that drove cronies lives on in his son. Although Zeus had the moral high ground in the Titan novelty he would soon fall prey to the same traps that consumed his predecessor, even though he had taken christmases thrown as the all powerful ruler of creation. Zoos never learned how to be a good father. Thanks again for tuning into mythology. We'll be back. Tuesday with the second part of the story of Zeus and cronies.

Anne Ortelee's May 24, 2020 Weekly Weather

"Radio Hi everybody. Welcome to end or at least weekly weather. My name is an early and astrologer here at the bright red desk. It is Memorial Day weekend and today is May Twenty. Four th twenty twenty. How did he get to be more? He'll day already Today was kind of a crazy day so I apologize for the PODCAST Just a Sunday another Sunday in the time of Krona Virus Get I remember. They see that. Remember don't remember the name of the but love and the time of cholera. This is quarantine in the time of Corona Virus So yes it was a busy week We are in Eclipse season as you all know my favorite saying the clips is coming. The ECLIPSES are coming. It's time to get ready. The eclipses are on their way. Just had the new moon last week in Gemini to Friday and now we are officially in the approach to eclipses. There are going to be three ECLIPSES. This year There's a lunar eclipse on June fifth. Then there's a solar eclipse on June twenty first and then there's another lunar eclipse on July fifth. So it's emotion seeing emotion right. Those are the three the The solar eclipse on June twenty first is very companionable to these solar eclipse. We had a nine eleven remember. It's been nineteen years eclipses. Take nineteen years to go around the circle. This solar eclipse Is going to be right over? China going to go right over China so busy the one they're getting the virus on or actually the mutation of the virus so it will be interesting to see what happened in. There was good astrology that I am. I always kind of watch the news So they just announced that they have this mutation of the virus in China that has a longer incubation period. Longer than two weeks. So that means that people can walk around carrying it and nobody knows they have it for a while. So I kinda was like ooh interesting so we're GonNa Watch for what comes out on the eclipse because the clips had four Capricorn which was on December solar eclipse was at four capricorn and then there was an eclipse on the clips on twenty two In in January which twenty two of course cardinal scientists point so became a world eclipse? And then this next one is a really world. Eclipse. It's on zero of the Cardinal Axis Zero Cancer. Which is you know. Kinda means that the whole world pays attention. We've got to worldwide eclipses the one that we had in January. And that was when Harry and Meghan quit you know that was the worldwide news then leaving the castle going off to live our lives and then of course. The virus kind of came in that came out on that one and then now we have another one on the twenty first of June. So we're leading up to a clips period and you know what that means. Is that you know you've listened. If you listened to the podcast for Awhile eclipses bring to light stories. They also make us feel. You know we have to take action on things that we haven't seen or we didn't know about but now comes to light so we find out about it and we go. Oh Wow I never realized that you know I had an Aha moment right or I had an Aha revelation or I found out something that I had been Thinking about or worried about or working on or whatever you know comes to light and we often feel with eclipses. This sense of urgency like we have to do something we absolutely have to do. Something and very often is something that's been going on for a while. Not New. It's just now there's a sense of. Oh my God I gotTa Take Action on it. So the one that we're having with with Gemini The first one went on the the fifteenth The the fifth of June that's a Gemini Eclipse and so that has a lot of energy around relationships and how we communicate and how we partner and of course Venus's retrograde right now and she and She and mercury out of bounds And so there's a lot of energy with the energy of abundance or abundance of. Oh my God I have to do something I have to do something. So there's kind of a heightened sense of Chaos with that and heightened sense of you know need to take action right so when we look at the the charts for this week you know. Mars is in Pisces. So it's a little bit fluid. It's not it's a little slippery. It's not real clear what we're supposed to do but we can feel we're supposed to do something and that's the fluidity of Mars is. He's approaching he right now. He's at seven Pisces. So he's swimming in towards the Jiminy planets he's swimming in towards Neptune Gun. Take them a little while to get there. But he's also sex tell to is so we're having kind of unexpected news unexpected things happening and we also have a lot of energy with The juvenile planet of kind of communicating to us and asking us to understand things in a new way but most importantly wearing a season. So because there's three of them this year it's a little longer than usual. The two-week buildup lunar eclipse two weeks solar eclipse two weeks lunar eclipse two weeks out from the fifth of July to the next new moon. Another two weeks so goes to like the nineteenth of July so this is a clip season. We know we're going to be a little more emotional little more intense a little more passionate the planets the big planets the Koran the krona can't the Krona clan is I'm calling him or the krona pack they're all moving retrograde until September and October And they're of backing up right. So that's you know. We're being released are retrograde reopening redoing releasing and in our own lives. Were being set free a little bit to go and do something new but it may be clear. What because the Mars and Pisces. So it's kind of. It's kind of an emotional Mars. It's a sensitive Mars you know. He's deeply feeling and he's He's a fish Mars so I was reading someone earlier today and They'd had a they'd had a con- conversation with someone and the person had just like the vaporized as the as they put it. They ghosted ghosted. And I kinda went. Yeah that's Pisces. To ghost you know they kind of disappear. They Kinda swim off. And so there's an energy of that but also because we're having been this retrograde there's an energy of old relationships coming back right and I've had a few people call that breaking up with someone. I'm like. Well you're breaking up on him. Venus retrograde really breaking up. You're just you know you're you're pausing I've also had people that have had old loves return you know calling on the door. Ding Dong Hi. I'm back or hey you know I was thinking about. You thought I'd check in you know. Venus retrograde is similar to mercury retrograde except the ghosts are more romantic. Or they owe you money. You know you owe them money So this is also Venus Retrograde. A good time to settle debts. And figure out what you WANNA do about that or you know. Kind of say no. I think that's not really working for me You know how do I want to work with the money finances and it does give us an opportunity to Redo All things run by the backward moving planets right now that's Venus with just money in values and what's important to us and Pluto which is how we're going to transform our power dynamics Jupiter which is our sense of abundance and where we really feel. We want to expand in the world. Athena which is how he see CR patterns and what's inviting us and Saturn which is the structures that are changing around us in revising and revisiting and turning into something new. So it's a. It's an interesting week. Lot of energy with quintiles this week. All the capricorn planets are in quintiles or in Incan junked so quintile talent in conjuncture pretty close to each other right so quintiles our gifts where we get to see things or figure stuff out or things really feel like they flow and in conjunction places where we feel like we need to make an adjustment or change something and one of the features of this This pandemic has been The the the Cancun planets being so tightly meshed with each other and a couple of Aquarius right now but being so a meshed planets in Gemini Late Gemini Late Leo. You're really feeling the energy. It's like finger of God being formed or if you have them both it's like a big finger of God being for me. It's part of a finger but it's got a really deep you know need to transform and adjust and change and so this is a time because the energy a little more fluid Mars and Pisces. And it's sex telling urine us. It's a little time in the changes or a little easier to work with. They're a little. They're a little different. There's a different sense to them. There's a different feeling and the sun is gonNA come in to be squaring Mars. He's in Germany. So it's always about the choices. And how do we WANNA proceed? What do we want to do? And it's a lot about options you know so I think when we're working in the higher realms of this no there's higher and there's lower which is can make a decision when it's lower well. I don't know if it's either that or should I do this like I don't know what do you WanNa do? I don't know you know that kind of I don't know what I wanted to do. Right but the higher for is well the plan a plan. B. We can do this. We can do that. It gives a different sense of option. And of course the nodes are now in Gemini said. So they're really feeling like there's a bit more choice about how we do things which is helpful. That's always helpful. And there'd be Mrs Retrograde saying to US revise revisit Rethink Redo. Come up with a different way. You know so. I know here in Here in my house well I've been revising revisiting things and redoing things and you know and stuff that I thought I'd done already getting asked to do it again or you know. There's a few passes at it almost feels worse than mercury retrograde. Because it's like. Oh my God I gotta do that again. All RIGHT STEEP. Cy Step in right So it's an interesting week. It's not not a particularly tense week. But we are in the orbit the eclipses so we're going to start feeling them build up right because we're GONNA be going from full and when we get to that full moon On the fifth of the fifth of June it will be a full moon eclipse. It also takes us back to the story that we were working on on December fifth of twenty eighteen. That was when the new moon happened and there was an opening square on September fifth last year. And now we're at the full moon and then there will be closing square and Pisces time in March fifth of next year. So you to kind of think about what was going on for you. Because this story began then in December and then had an opening and then had a culmination and then had a Really so I know in my case that was you know Christmas Literally you know planning and getting ready for the Christmas with my dad because he died last year of course and you know there were there were a lot of. There was a lot of froming rumbling and stuff and then September it was after he passed so we had the memorial service In that timeframe and then now you know more changes in the family going on so I you know. I'm Kinda watching these and going all right. You know what's The story here So I know how it's going to play when I don't know how it's going to play out but I know what's going on in my life and how it echoes. So you WanNa kind of think about that in your life in your world and how those stories relate Because the eclipses bring it to life and help see it in a way we hadn't seen it before and help us understand it in a way we had understood it for and also encourage us to Make our wise choices Sometimes it's hard to be wise. This might be one of those times when you feel like. It's a little hard to be wise. Venus is aspect. Neptune Neptune is going to be aspect you know last week mercury and Venus both aspect at her So it's kind of you know understanding you know. How's it going so I was watching a newscast. The I watched a time. You know I like Lester Holt so I watched the NBC. Basically most of the time. And so I was watching the night. Nbc Guy. He's a nice guy I don't I don't remember his name but he had the woman come on and she was talking about how they were counting hospitalizations and if came and got a test. And you test positive but you went home and then came back later and were admitted. You weren't tested again. But you weren't counted as a cova hospitalizations so I kind of went. What and you can hear go. You could see him go. What what are they doing you know? And of course and best newscaster fast and he's not allowed to react. I kind of wish. Sometimes they go. What are they doing? How are they because that's what I did? I'm like I mean I actually rolled back and played it again. Did she say what she said? So it's it's It's a really interesting time and with Mercury and Venus and the mood and Vesta in the sun all out of bounds all getting squared by Mars. Right there's a whole energy here where you're you're getting the story but you're not getting the whole story right so you want to pay attention to what the whole story of because you know they're not talking or they're telling you one story and there's a really another story going on. It's almost worse than a mercury retrograde. Frankly because at least with the mercury retrograde you know you know they're supposed to be confusion around communication but with this puppy is like. Wow there's like all his communication confusion including like winds and during the podcast because she blew right through the morning she woke up a quarter of eleven she started working and then I put a person in its six because I usually try and do the pockets in the morning so that I blew right through my time slot on blog talk radio so then it's eleven right and I'm Kinda like well you know. What are you GONNA do? It's mercury Venus. It's you know blew through time slots 'cause that was that was how it worked. It's that kind of weak blow right through stuff. Go just blew right through that tonight. And that's the story and you know kind of get out there. Do Your Grocery shopping Virus mutation noise out of China right virus mutation longer incubation period. Hm of course we don't know we don't know we don't know so you're precautions.

You know I always describe it is. This is the time when you go. How many beefsteak tomatoes? How many Cherry Tomatoes? How many plum tomato Zucchini do I want this year? Because you're making the decisions about what you're going plant in your garden so kind of carry that out as you're making the decisions about what kind of food you. WanNa have in your house for when we when we run when the food supply collapses in the fall and I know that's kind of dark but you know go look at those peaks of the pandemic I posted on my facebook Little One and there's a big one and the big one is Mars so that makes what we've gone through so far look like kindergarten. I know that's hard. Then you're GONNA go. She didn't really mean that. Yeah she means it but we have time spring. It's Memorial Day. It's beautiful make a plan. Make a plan. Make a couple of plans. So you're ready so forward into the week. I have a cat here on my desk remo. You're GONNA help me do the weekly weather. He's he's taken to kind of climbing on the desk and going. Yeah my desk. And then he lays on the keyboard. There's like thing when you lay on the control key that makes the screen get bigger. So I'm like all of a sudden my my fonts are like huge and it's remote but that's doing it all right so this week we are we come may twenty four th the moon today right now is in cancer. It's in cancer tomorrow. Memorial Day it goes void of course on Monday on Tuesday night rather at nine. Oh six with an opposition to Jupiter And then it's void and so moon opposite. Jupiter is a lot of. I don't really like the you know the moon opposites. The cancer moons very sensitive and really emotional and kind of feeling based right and then it goes into Leo on too early in the morning on Wednesday morning at two thirty three. It's an Leo. On Wednesday on Thursday goes void at nine. Thirty in the morning goes forward with the Nice aspects to Wendy's Wednesdays really a good day. 'cause it's Leo Moon with good closing aspect's Thursday with a good closing aspects. Moon Leo sex tells retrograde Venus so good for revising things revisiting recontacting you know connecting with folks Thursday. The moon is void from nine thirty in the morning until two. Oh nine. Pm East Coast time and then it goes I'm sorry it's void in the morning until seven forty and the M Friday so it's void all day Thursday and then fry seven forty. Am on Friday. It GOES INTO VIRGO. And it's in Virgo Friday Saturday Sunday and it goes void at five seventeen in the morning Sunday morning with a trying to Jupiter. That's a nice time so Friday Saturday Sunday. Well Sunday morning. You gotTA BE UP early Friday Saturday. And then the moon is void for a couple hours five hours on Sunday morning. The thirty first when it enters libra at ten thirty eight on. Sunday the thirty first and then it's Lebron Monday the first of June and it goes void on Tuesday the second of June. How do we get to be June already and it goes void with a Square Jupiter? So the days Wednesdays Nice because it's got a nice sex style and then Friday and Saturday or Nice Monday Tuesday I've got a lot of voids. You know Kinda hard enter. Just not hard. But mooning cancers just really sensitive and it's opposite Jupiter and it Kinda crabby sign so You know it's kind of a little you know you're not you're not getting your needs met the way you would like and then it's void of course on It's void most of it's void most of the next part of it so when it goes into Virgo on. Friday it's good shape but it's void all day Thursday night so the twenty eighth So that's kind of the big excitement in terms of moons not great moons not bad moons but just building up. The eclipse is coming. And that's a big deal son. This week goes from five Jim night. Twelve Jim nine with a lot of aspects to The the outer planets the crabby ones at the end of the week on the thirtieth and the the first of June but he has trying to Juno on the twenty six encouraging us to partner and then he also has square two series on the twenty ninth. There's kind of a separation or an ending energy. He's Cranky crabby on the thirtieth really crabby. Because he's got a semi square to Arison the suspect quadrant to Pluto and contra parallel to Pluto so son is really crabby. And it's in Geminis so it's you know crabby with words We can expect to twitter. Twitter storm then from the Gemini in the White House Mercury this week is shifting signs. He is going into cancer. He's in Gemini his favorite signed through the twenty eighth. That's what threw me off on the twenty eighth because mercury goes in to Cancer and I thought. Oh that's going into the mood and I'm like no we're going into cancer. It's Gemini Right so Gemini. Twenty four to thirty Gemini and then up to to cancer so he shifts into cancer on the twenty eighth at which point then he gets very emotionally volatile. Because he's going to be in cancer and he's to have a mercury retrograde in cancer in this next month or so so he also is feeling really emotional before he gets there when he's in Gemini. He's still pretty clear thinking but he also makes some really important choices on the twenty eighth of. May when he hits the nodes of fate right before he goes into cancer and he has a lot of health aspects. This week he's gotTa help aspect on the twenty fifth any as health aspect on The twenty six and he has a health aspect on the twenty eighth and a House Bat Health Aspect on the twenty nine because he's forming in conjunction or Quin courses to the big guys the corona virus guys. We're just going to call them. The Cronin virus guys. It's also a little crabby on the twenty fourth we just Kinda like grammar venous. This week is retrograde of course as we mentioned and she's eighteen almost nineteen going back to fourteen And so she also is crappy this week. 'cause she's in Gemini kind of following you know she's doing what the Sun will do a couple of days. She's last week. She was a little crabby this week. She's a little crabby. So she has a sesikwe Quadri to Pluto and assess quadrant to Athena on the twenty nine th and the thirty first so she's a little crabby to Like bad you know. It's just kind of you know Ma'am that Kinda crabby. It's not like you know everybody's like my computer just Delta deck of cards. They don't know how that happened. In computers haunted lately Venus also aspects the nodes fate on the first of June kinda so. There's the faded energy. Then she she draws an Has An aspect to them so mercury on the twenty eighth and then Venus on the twenty on the first of June so emotional choices relationship choices. People leaving People arriving you know because whenever mercury hits those nodes there's a transition whenever Venus. It's the nodes. There's a change nodes are really important. in right now because they're hanging out at the last degree of Sagittarius and Gemini there on the Galactic Center so a lot of us are getting Important messages important information or important downloads. Good with any of those terms so you really do WanNa pay attention to the messaging. You're getting more from your inner voice. Not necessarily the world. But you know I'm not gonNA say don't pay attention to the world. If a couple of people say you know you really should see this movie or you really should read this book. You WanNa kind of get an idea of the volume the vision of it you know so. I posted on facebook The New York Times had a had the cover page of the. The Sunday Times was a listing of people's names and memorable phrase about them More Obituary little mini you know one-sentence Obituary of thousand people because the death toll is almost one hundred thousand. We'll be one hundred thousand this week and it was four pages of those kind of names into the paper And that would mean there would have to be four hundred you know. I mean that's a lot of like to get one hundred thousand. You know a lot of papers So Yeah Kinda. Kinda big Forward Mars this week He Made Series on the twenty fourth which is very much a take us home to mother. It's also on the world point so paying attention to that. Mars also sex Talionis this week on the twenty fifth And that's kind of unexpected news or a change. He has a health aspect on the twenty fifth. When he has a hard aspect Chiron he is fighting with heiress Pluto on the twenty six. And the twenty seventh now remember. He's in the semi square right because he's Pisces. So this is in aries and Pluto is in capricorn and those two are square. GonNa meet up in a big square at the end of the month. But you know that's the cantankerous energy but Mars and semi squares so he's kind of being a little stress he's pointing out things but he's not actually doing anything yet so you want to kind of watch. What gets pointed out to you on the twenty six to twenty seven and the thirtieth. Because he's going to be giving you some news and he is of course in Pisces. So he's kind of quiet in the news. But it's there if you choose to look for it Jupiter this week Is Of course going retrograde? He's twenty six Going back to twenty five and he got a adjustment to your home and hearth on the twenty seventh and he also has an opportunity for healing. Some good news about healing on the first and I've been watching Jupiter lately with You know when they come up with things that are going to be helpful for cures or you know ideas or things are they're saying hey this is something that might work. 'cause Jupiter actually in capricorn is being pretty practical in terms of saying things so that could be some good news about you know how to handle this or what to do with going forward. Saturn courses and by quintile this week. He's retrograde in one Aquarius He's got gotta by Quintiles Vesta. He's not moving very far. You just went retrograde. So he's still going pretty slow urine this on the twenty six six Tau series which is kind of an revelation a seeing things that you hadn't seen before and an opportunity to create something that's nurturing and inspiring for you or inspiring for you know how you take care of yourself. We also have Kyron semi sex style series so this can be sad news about somebody or something that was nurturing to you or really helped vest. It is running. She's twenty seven. Twenty nine is so she's coming to the nodes too. So that's on June first. So you're gonNA find out about home or hearth or things like that changes in your office changes in your workplace. I have a few people that are losing their jobs or have been told their last day. We'll be in June so that's like a leaving. You know packing up your office and leaving. I've had a few people kind of get suddenly fired out of the blue and I'm like wow just gone was like yeah wow so. There's a lot more that this week with. Vesta and then Juno is stationing direct on May twenty sixth at five libra. So she's saying okay. Let's go forward in partnership to create some new things to build some stuff and then series is in an argument with era. So there's a bit of a crabby cranky energy around how you take care of yourself. I generally find win. Series has hard aspect to airs. That's going to be on. May thirty first. You're Kinda like okay. I need to have macaroni and cheese. I need to have my comfort food. I'm not feeling comfortable. How do I comfort myself? You know so. Watch for that energy you know. Kinda a little irritable a little irritable. I need I need to be taken care of. Are you know? Sometimes you just burst into tears because you're a mother child and we all are motherless children right now we're all being asked to step into our Saturn to do our Saturn by signing placement in House. Because that's the easiest way through this figure out your Saturn. Do it do it do it. And then you'll know what to do and I know I did a podcast while back ago while back called your Saturn which is available for sale on my website We have a modified version of it. Available for sale on the strategy hub strategy hub slash Saturn. But it's a good. It's a good time to kind of brush up on your Saturn skills. He's going back into capricorn. He's GonNa ask you really know your work because when he goes back into capricorn. He's going to be there until December and he really is asking us to you. Know Lean in and do our work and understand what our work is giving us a breath of a vision that we're going to be eventually free but not quite yet not quite yet so on that note. I wish you a happy entrance into eclipses this week. Kind of quiet by next week GonNa rock and roll so you know. Go turn on some good music dance with your Mars. Pisces feel a little sentimental look at old photos Watch some old movies. I'm old home movies. Watch some sentimental favorite. Somebody mentioned the bee gees today So I went and listened to staying alive and I think I'm GonNa go look at you know some old BG movies. 'cause I love the Bee gees when I was younger? Rocking that sentimentality rocking that warm cousy nurturing place that makes you feel good on that note. I'm going to hang up and wish you a great week and a Happy Memorial Day. I know it's not a happy day but it is A day when we under the people that have sacrificed their lives and we have had one hundred thousand Americans sacrifice their life probably more. They're not counting them. All you know But Yeah so. In honor of those that we love that have departed before us. We thank them. We Love Them. We wish them good journey. Take Care Lots of love by.

Whats The EndGame?| American Electorate Podcast EP 52

"Audio presents the American Electorate podcast your weekly home for a non partisan breakdown of the news as well as thought provoking discussions on culture and the American political process. And here's your host. Gregory Anderson. Greetings my friend. Welcome back to. The podcast we have a really great show lined up for you today. Trump made headlines of course because he's the president a lot a couple of days ago. especially with the announcement that he may send in the military cost the protests, so that's something that we need to talk about the riots. Rather also made headlines by visiting, Church, and there are reports that tear gas was used so that's something to talk about. Another thing that I find interesting is that there's been a lot of finger pointing as. Extremists and. How much they are fueling the riots and the burning and looting that we are seeing across the country so that itself is. Something very noteworthy something that we are going to talk about and then another story that no one seems to care about anymore the coronavirus. Interesting, we just talking about was a couple of weeks ago. That Oh. My, God there's nothing else to talk about other than that. You're on right, so I gotta talk some more stuff about the election, so we have an interesting story. From CNBC go over, but the the main story re in regards. Is that Enderle? Dockers believe that the. Krona virus itself is losing potency, and that sort of disappearing from Italy. We're on talk about that because if those see remotely true, that's some good news, but before we go there I of course. When opened up with another monologue? I really have a question as What's the end game. For what we're doing right now with these protests. What's The in Game Now? The piece of Singapore's I have zero issues with an I. There's been some very tear jerking. Moments I've seen online coming from these protests, but I'm of course really referring to the rioting. And a lot of people excusing them. It's bad. It's bad and that's why I wanted to know. WHAT'S THE END game? Because in the end. This is all over, because this will eventually blow over towns like mine like. We have a poor part of the of the city in Peoria where. Shops have been destroyed. Set on fire when those Boston. All the things stolen. This isn't just about target. People at target and Walmart are the kind of like the stand in for the places that are. Being looted and it's anchor, a lot of small businesses, a lot of minority. Small businesses have been destroyed. Due to the rioting and looting. So what happens after those people were already hurting via? The coronavirus lockdowns. And this was. This is a major issue that we're talking about a second ago. But now that the shops arrested down what happens then what happens to some of those shops at people relied on to go on daily. Their needs. Are No longer there. Or even when it's time to reopen, we opened the country fully. They want to move onto that town. Because, it's no longer safe to conduct versus. The city. They didn't get much help. In defending residences. What then? So th that's been my major issues that this. The whole process between the excessive on writing looting burning isn't wealth off it just as A. because. It's going to hurt us. Mike knowing my community, our hundreds of communities across the country. We're going to be heard by this. And I'm sorry, but you can't claim to care about minorities and our issues. While also simultaneously destroying. Our communities. I just think those two things. Those two thoughts kitten can coexist. So them when? People decide to move out of your city. Due to what happened and there's less of opportunity 'cause now think about this as well. This isn't just. I mean of course. A lot of a lot of these stores may have insurance may be replace. Inventory then help fix the damage that was done, but what about the people who work there? How would you claim to care about what's going on in our world and care about an minorities? By destroying the jobs. Now A lot. Of Work. And I know for me. Personally I was worried if I would have a job to go back to. Now, there's thousands of people if not millions I don't to say. It's the numbers out high, but thousands of people won't how? To. Places we're just starting to reopen and boom. Now there's now there's now they may have to try to find a point appointment and that extra amount. Of money that they were going to get is going to dry up at the end of July. Worry about the economic. Ramifications going forward. At, all SORTA agreed that a lot of this isn't anything to do which floyd? Now I talked about the pandemic believe that's played a huge role because I mean. With thirty. Forty million people unemployed right now. Of course there are going to be people with a lot of time in the hands to be able to Do this and then people were SORTA. Hurt by pandemic. who weren't getting enough money you? People were driving. foodbanks are hurt by this. Of, course is going. GonNa be a lot of angst, and the country and I think a lot of this lot of that place into what we're seeing with these riots, but again we have to think more constructively than we are thinking and one thing. I wasn't going to talk about today, but it turns out. The the family of George Floyd had a second autopsy done, and it did divy homicide, so I mean we're I believe we are going to finally get justice and this and that's that's what really sucks about. This is that we finally achieved a moment where everyone left. Right and center agreed that this was wrong. I mean I hate that it took. Someone losing their life to get there, but we finally achieved virtually. Universally that this was wrong. And now now the majority of the focus is on the right, and not the situation of injustice that happened to joy floyd. We aren't talking as much about that I also reject the idea that because a lot of people say if you're more angry about shopping destroyed than you are about. To be murdered, then part of the problem. I'm sorry that's ridiculous. Just ridiculous because one you're allowed to be angry about both in to not everyone channels are anger in the exact same way. Okay so first. Of the day trump threatens to send military to quash riots has comes from June second two, thousand twenty on Monday president trump vowed to deploy military to control the streets of America. Unless governors take sufficient efforts to quell the riots. Some liberals would just putting mildly expressed disgust at trump's threat to invoke the insurrection act to call out the military. Some governors push back on trump's combative tone. The sources us were vox NPR news in the Washington Times. This is. I'M NOT GONNA lie I. saw this coming a mile. Away. however I will say before I could over to NPR for more INFO on this topic. Some, the is toning down hair. Minnesota is doing a a better job of kind of reducing some of the the horrible behavior that we've seen I mean, but obviously the peaceful protests Should be allowed to continue once traveling on the First Amendment rights against anyone you know. That's what I'm going to talk about. On my second episode today and I'll talk about that at the end of the podcast. Over NPR the title of their article has governors pushback on trump's threat to deploy federal troops to quell unrest comes from June second, two thousand twenty. President trump and a conference call Monday with the nation's governors threatened to deploy the US military to restore order, unless dates hit by days of unrest, put down violent demonstrators, urging urging listeners to dominate lawbreakers or risk looking like a bunch of jerks it reading the White House didn't sit well with many of the governors Pogrebin, busy, responding to clashes between protesters and law enforcement and dozens of US city sparked by the death a week ago, of George, Floyd after Minneapolis police knelt on his neck. Trump a tough with the governor saying who's putting attorney general bar in charge of the federal law enforcement response, the president said the White House was strongly looking for arrest. You have to arrest these people you have to try. Those people and you have to have them in jail. For long periods of time, the president said if people are running, you have to dominate if you dominated wasting your time. He said they're gonNA overrun. You and you're going to look like a bunch of jerks. It's a moment if you don't put it down, it's going to get worse and worse. Trump said. The only time is success was when you're weak and most of you are weak. The. Call followed another night of unrest, Sunday over the May twenty fifth death of Floyd and came on the same day that the president in a Rose Garden address urge. Governors Deploy National Guard troops to quell the unrest. Of A city or state refuses to take actions that are. If a city or state refuses to take actions. If a city or state refused to take actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of US residents than I will deploy the United States military to quickly solve the problem for them in the nation's capital where the US Secret Service, uniformed officers, military police and other law enforcement on Monday fired tear gas on peaceful protesters. Of the White House, trump said he was already dispatching thousands thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism assaults and the destruction of property. While some governors, such South Carolina's Henry McMaster Republican praise trump's call for crackdowns, others took issue with the president's combative tone question, his authority to unilaterally deploy federal troops to the states during the conference call Eleanor Governor Jay Pritzker Democrat warned the president that the rhetoric coming from the White House was making it worse to was trump. SNAP BACK I don't like your rhetoric that much. Either I had to speak up and I told them his rhetoric is inflaming matters. That is making things much worse in that. We need to call for police reform brisk. Said told NPR's morning edition on Tuesday. We Need A. A call for calm and that's what the president should do, and that's what we need. National Leadership and this regard Michigan where police and protesters have skirmish in grand rapids, despite many demonstrations, peaceful governor Gretchen Whitmer a Democrat called the president's remarks dangerous instead they should be gravely concerning to all Americans. The president's calmest she said sends a clear signal that this administration is determined to sow the seeds of hatred and division, which I fear will only lead to more violence and destruction. We must reject this wave. Thinking this is a moment that calls for empathy humanity in unity. What I said in a statement. This is one of the most challenging periods in our nation's history as Americans. We must remember our enemy is racial injustice, not one another so only be linked to the rest of that article innocent. Much there, so we is. So there is I would say some disagreement. Around whether or not, the president has the power. To. Invoke the interaction at now's minniap- not many who pointed out. This normally comes at the request governor themselves, but we also saw how. Last Century. Eisenhower used it to enforce. Integration between the races in school, so while technically there is. Precedent for some people are weary of. The president actually using this and I'm worried about this myself. I am worried I. Do not want to see. The military on the streets I just don't. Want it to get to that point. So that's why I'm hoping that within the next few days or a week or so that this quells down and we get justice for George floated and shopping or shopping, or however you WanNa pounces last name That, he's tried and found guilty for the crime that we believe that he's been found on which is murder. And, for my second story of the day, traversee surrounds trump church, visit and dispersal of protesters has comes from June second two thousand twenty media coverage of President Donald Trump's appearance at Saint John's Episcopal church in Washington has differed greatly along partisan lines coverage from many lefty Dallas and some sensory outlets who is more purportedly on the excessive use of tear gas, flashbang grenades and other crowd control measures to clear protesters prior to the president's arrival, conversely some coverage from right right Al concentrate more on. On the fact that the writer set fire to the church the night before while painting the President's appearance, as well intention attempt to promote civility and faith. This comes from the Associated Press Vox and federal, so we're GONNA. Go to the SOCIETA depressed for more INFO on this story here in a second newer point out a couple of things there's controversy as to whether or not tear. Gas was actually used at hough an whether this was done for the president. So there are people claiming. That police officers were being held it with water bottles and other objects, and this was being. This is going to be done anyway, but who Who knows and as far as the tier guys, there's also conflicting reports I think the one people making fun of that came from the the the the federalist believe. It says that tear gas was not used so I. Don't know. I don't claim to know one way or the other. Let's head over to the Associated Press for actually no, this is All right, so I clicked on the Associated Press pulls up. He S DOT Com. So. That's that's cool with me though. On this very short article and there's this title. Police fired tear gas to disperse. DC protests so trump could visit church. President Donald Trump is visiting the two hundred year old church near Washington set on fire, as demonstrators clashed with police over the weekend beginning with James Madison. Every person who has held the office of president attended as a Saint John's Church law enforcement cleared protesters out of the area with tear-gas before trump's visit tear gas canisters could be heard exploding as trump spoke in the Rose Garden. He's in walked over to the church. The processes appear to be acting peacefully before they were dispersed by. By Force! Trump is urging the nation's governments to get tougher with violent protests and deplore the national guard. He said in the Rose Garden that he is an ally of peaceful protests, but he stressed that I am your president of law and order now one thing I do want to mention before i. go over to my third story other day. I thought was interesting I. Think is going to have something to do with the election. Coming in November was an interesting poll that was taken. And this was a a morning, console, Paul, Calling US military to supplement city police forces. Support Fifty. Eight percent oppose thirty percent. Let's just say. The sample is representative of the country fifty eight percent of the country. Would like the US military's yourself. City police forces to quell the unrest. Now this matters, because of course, a lot of people drawn comparisons and Are Well founded to comparing this to the election with Richard Nixon. For, as being this sort of law and order, presence and having a law and order campaign. This is GonNa make November interesting, because like I said Zare for me to say what exactly the elections going to hinge on because we we were saying that Oh my God. The the enemy was what was going to hinge on in January by April. We said it was Krono coronavirus response. It's June third, and now we're talking about these rise. And who knows what it's GonNa be by November. Extremist groups involvement in recent protests and violence. This comes from June second, two, thousand, twenty, the extent to which extremist groups have been involved with writing and protest, following the death of joint floyd is the focus of prominent and sometimes divided media coverage, some coverage of outlets, speculation of alright groups and white supremacist, inciting violence in otherwise peaceful protests, conversely right rated. Let's focus more on seeming by extreme left. Left movements such as MTPA, inciting violence at otherwise peaceful protests, President Donald, trump recently said ANTIFA would be declared as a domestic terrorist organization. The sources used for the New York Times online news the hill and Fox online is this is going to be I think one of the bigger stories going forward once all this eventually those over because it will, who was at fault for this and people have been blaming. Well as white supremacist, which I wouldn't be surprised whether it's ANTIFA which are also wouldn't be surprised, but. I mean you've seen communist flag? You've seen the tape of flag flying not. Most of these peaceful protests, but at some of the writing and you a lot. Of White supremacists also as well so it's a it's a mixed bag of it, so there's no way to place the blame solely at the feet of tea or solely at the feet of some extremist groups. On the right like all right groups, but let's head over to the hill for more. Info House homeland, security. Committee asked for more information about extremists. Involvement in protest is from Justin Coleman. This is from June first two thousand twenty, the House Homeland Security Committee requested in a letter released Monday at the administration official provide more information about the alleged extremist involvement in protests over George Floyd's death. The Democratic members of the committee addressed a letter data for Tuesday to FBI director, Christopher Wray and Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf. The committee led by Chairman Bennie Thompson. The Democrat from Mississippi wrote that it has serious concerns about the constitution implications of officials statements that left wing or right wing extremists are instigating violence at Floyd protest. We also seek to understand the truth. An evidence behind the reports of extremists involvement in protests, and how the Department of Homeland Security the DHS in the FBI are responding to these. While ensuring that American civil rights and civil liberties are protected. The committee sat and the letter, the stakes, including the protection of Americans physical safety, and their constitutional rights are enormous said the committee is requesting all documents from January first to present related to intelligence on ongoing protests, including information given to law enforcement partners. To the designation of groups do domestic terrorist organizations to the deployment, A. D. H. S. employees at demonstrations and the surveillance protesters. The deadline to deliver the documents is June nineteenth, and the letter says the committee will be briefed by H S and the FBI by June twelfth, the letter follows reports that right wing and left wing. Anti government groups have been involved in the FEU protests within Minnesota and across the country. Country President Donald Trump announced Monday, the US plans to designate anti-fascist activists known as Antiga as a terrorist organization, although federal authorities are unable to so label domestic groups, Attorney General Way Embar also called out the decentralized group on Sunday, saying in a statement that the violence instigated and carried out by teeth and other similar groups in connection with the writing is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly, so that's interesting. again we don't know and people who are claiming to know the whole story are doing some for political purposes, and that's there's to me. There's the there's no way around that. I mean we see like I talked about this in my model all. About how damaging this is going to be sometime election time where? Authorities are failing to protect some of these businesses that you know I. Mean they were already being screwed over by depending? Now. The really really screwed. By having their storefronts busted and having all mentor installer, so is all being done by extremist gears. Probably not I would say this is like I. said I think it's a combination of a bunch of different forces. I think you have the scripts because we saw the pictures I don't know about you. We've witnessed this live also, this is a combination of people were just being opportunities. You know there's a crowd of people doing about yourself, so you show up and you WANNA get free stuff, too. So that's what I think is what a lot of people are doing, so it'll be interesting. Interesting to see what they come up with, and I can't wait to hear it, and for my final story of the day. Something that you have heard about in a while, which is the crow virus? Top doctors say viruses disappearing in Italy other experts disagree. This comes from Jim, first, two, thousand twenty several Italian doctors, recent descriptions of how the Kobe nineteen coronavirus is losing potency and prevalence in Italy or pushback from the WHO officials and several us-based health experts Italian doctors notice at the virus is seemingly losing strength, and is no longer as widespread or as viral in Italy as it once was. Other experts warn there isn't yet any scientific evidence to back up. That notion covered from right rate at media concentrate more on the apparent optimism from Italian doctors left generated media porter more widely on news with coverage from left radio outlets generally focus more on the words of caution from the world or conversation and others, the sources used or the Washington Examiner CNBC and Washington, post, so let's head over to see NBC to see what's going on. On title hairpiece is the W. H. O. Says Crowbars isn't losing potency. This is still a killer virus that comes from June first two thousand twenty the. World Health Organization Causes World leaders Monday about reports that krona vars potency. Saying this is still a killer virus. In thousand, the people are still dying daily needs to be exceptionally careful that we are not creating a sense that all of a sudden the buyers has decided to be less pathogenic. That is not the case at all doctrine Mike. Ryan Executive Director of the WHO Emergencies Program said during a press conference at the agency's headquarters in Geneva. H officials were asked about comments made by doctrine Italy, who said the coronavirus important, and has become less lethal on all sorts speculated this. Due to the weather, heating up and it's been very very hot. The doctor told Italian, public broadcasting company swabs that were performed over the last ten days showed if our load in quantitative terms, though was absolutely infinitesimal, compared to ones carried out a month or two months ago. According to a is report. Dr Marie Van Kerckhove had of the WHO's merging diseases and soonest unit said Monday as she had not seen. The report added that there are measures. Governments can take to reduce press the transmission of the virus that includes finding testing in isolating COPA, nineteen patients. She said, but if we let the virus go, it will still trans man if we let the. The virus go in fact people, and it will still cause of her illness in about twenty percent of people she added. The virus can also impact people differently. She said adding that it causes a range of illnesses consistently across the globe. The important message is that there are things we can do to suppress the transmission and save lives. She said the virus. Virus has infected more than six point one million people worldwide and killed at least three hundred and seventy, two, thousand, four hundred seventy nine people, since it emerged about five months ago, according to data by John. Hopkins University United. States has been hit the hardest with one point eight million cases across the country. This of course is debatable. There's of course if we believe anyone believes the numbers coming from China, the epicenter of the Global Covid nineteen pandemic shifted South America who official said last month as cases in Rio de Janeiro exploded last week, the whol warned countries would declining coronavirus infections that could still face an immediate second peak if they lent up too soon on measures that could halt the outbreak.

It would be much appreciated also today. We haven't shorter podcasts short very short. podcast where we talked about. Civil Liberties. Again. I thought it was necessary to do another on podcast. 'cause this is seems to be something that's being talked about. Online and everywhere due to president trump's announcement. Potentially, sending the military to. The streets! Of course we discussed so that's something that. People have been talking about, and I wanted to chime in on that discussion for a few minutes, so that podcast episode is out at the same time this one is. I will see you on. Friday, my friend.

422 Battlestar Galactica Take the Celestra

"We take single episode of science fiction TV series and over analyze it to within an inch of its life. This is the fusion patrol podcast. Welcome to the discussion. Oh, welcome to another episode of fusion patrol. I'm gene, and I am Ben and tonight we're going to be looking at the battle star galactica episode take the Celestia Adama presides over a ceremony to honor commander krona's, former commander of the battle star Reichen and Adamas. Former commanding officer furnaces being promoted to fleet commander of the industry ships for his sterling service, getting amazing efficiency numbers from his ship, the Celestica cronies is a stickler for military decorum and order during the ceremony starbuck sees Aurora, krona's pilot. She is an old flame that starbuck thought dead, the massacre on capita when he tries to talk to her. She's cold unforgiving heated modified that if she was alive. And, and as he tries to make sense of what happened he manages to jeopardize his relationship. With Cassiopeia Aurora. Leave starbuck to return to the celestial. But unbeknownst to him, she's up does something sneaky, obtaining navigational data from the lactic as computers without proper. Authorization starbuck cannot leave well enough alot Apollo attempts to talk him out of heading to the celestial to talk with her. But instead he gets talked into going along on the celestial Aurora. Her current lover and a team of technicians, sabotage, the ship take weapons, an attempt to secure shuttle, the solicitor stops for repairs and since they're minor the fleet continues on the Ribble plan fails when their element of surprise is lost, and Apollo and starbuck arrive unannounced, they are defeated imprisoned and krona's orders Apollo and starbuck return them and himself to the glac ticket to file formal charges now chromosome, executive officer Charca sees his opportunity to take. Permanent command the celestial, he and the bridge crew supply Apollo with the wrong flight coordinates, a course, which will take them far away from the fleet and out of range of return or help when they reached the point of no return, Chuck orders, ship to go dark and using the now repaired engines heads to rejoin the fleet on the shuttle Aurora tells a tale of slave labor aboard the Celestica the rebels thought that the whole fleet was like that. But Kronen was completely unaware, as it had been Chuck us doing all along with the help of the rebel technicians. They rig up away for the celestial to return and out of fuel Apollo and starbuck managed to land the shuttle and attempt to take the bridge during the battle. The ship is plunged into an uncontrolled nosedive which krona sacrifices his life to correct. Apollo starbuck and the rebels are victorious and Chaka is at his evil. Little band are put away for good the galactic. Crew gathers again to honor krona's this time in death. Meanwhile, guess yoga forgive star. So I saw you were in Los Angeles this weekend. Yes. I was. Give it a plug. What if you're, you're probably calcat? Oh well yeah, we were there for the two weeks. We were meeting, our publicist, and film director and also one of our correspondents down there for future Oscar event. So, yeah. That styles the whole thing. Yeah. It was a good will visit and where can they find that? And she geeks dot com TJ geeks dot com. All right. I guess you can tell we probably might be delaying the inevitable here, but take the Celestica. What'd you think? Well, okay, there's this one character. I'm trying to his name. He was working with Roro shoot. The d is the guy with a big air. We'll, I'll the only thing that had more fluff in this episode was that guy's hair. Yeah. I don't know what his name was either. Something like that. Yeah. Yeah, I even have a comment here they deserve an award for the best hair styled slaves ever mall of them, the whole crew, I mean, fit healthy lookin clean, a few violent if you don't think it's a flu VM. Effervescent hair. I mean it was. And I was stretching for something to say positive, but they. Unusual the opening credits. There was a certain voice that suddenly was back, and I was kinda surprised to hear it. You know, I was wondering about that, as we watched that episode. I was thinking has been gone for a while. We has been missing our duty to point that out along the way because I did notice that it was back. And, and sadly, what I thought was okay. If it's been gone. And it's back that means they needed time to fill out the episode you. It's. We can get thirty more seconds that we whip Patrick McNeill back in. Or whatever long. Yeah. Okay. Good. I'm glad you caught that because that, that did kind of ring in my head, and I was completely unsure if that was actually no. There were a couple of things I and from a story standpoint, this is pretty by the numbers, right? I mean not much Dereck amended here. But there were a couple of things that wanted to call up the first off is the ceremony that they had at the beginning. Like no set we've seen on the galactica before not much of a said, really, I think just a couple of huge room overhead camera shots. You know, they had like a crane shot from above over over tie, and krona's and stuff. It's like this is doesn't look like galactica it felt different. And when they got to the engine room on the Celestica, I think they were using green screen maybe to try to make that look like a huge room I think it was green screen or blue screen, I could've been a map. I think it was just a tarp. Yeah. Could have been something. I've seen that used even today. I did a visit of Universal Studios few years back, and they just wanted something to show outside both supposed to be the window of this one set. And it was a painting of skyline. Yeah. Because it's two dimensional. You don't you don't necessarily realize that they can they can throw a two-dimensional backdrop behind there and, and it shot. Right. You can't tell and considering everything was very low def. Yeah. Yeah. Well, you know, space nineteen ninety nine all of the mountains of behind alpha those are all those are all cardboard. Yeah. Paper just stuck back there, but they look very convincing things. Yeah. They look fine for the television sets of that day, even if he had, what was considered to be a large screen color, TV, even then it would have looked fine. But on high definition television, like you and I both have and are. On homes. It's pretty clear that this was just some kind of artwork. It was something missed. But I didn't look. But I feel like it may be may have been a different director. Or maybe a different DP about the direct. I really I don't know about the director of Takeuchi, the director was Daniel holler. As far as the DP heavens. I have no idea this just I know been. Oh, it was Ben Coleman director of photography. I don't know if he's the regular one in all the galactica episodes. I just it just yeah. He he's done a number of them. He's t was the DP for ten episodes. Somebody was trying something different today. And I just I, I don't know. I well yeah it was it was noticeable. It was interesting because they had that huge set for the huge empty space. However, you wanna look at it for the for the ceremony. I'm surprised. They didn't reuse it for the funeral. You know, it's like a kind of an odd choice, you had that space open, and available, then why not why not use it again and make it a big shoot it all the same time. But anyone? So here's what I found interesting about the show. It's really poorly fleshed out. There are industries ships. Yeah. Stuff going on. Right. So we have this kind of, oh, there's a sort of Israelites wandering the wilderness aspect to, to this story where, you know, traveling out across the stars unknown space, and it's really easy to think about it as being sort of nomadic people. But they've got high-tech homes and stuff that they're carrying just like the Agra ships. You know, it's, it's a very different. And if they have industry ships, do they have neck Konomi? How does how does that work? I mean obviously, it's profitable for Charca to run a slave ship. So there must be. The money coming in. That's not getting to the slaves. That, you know, he's he's taking. And where do they get their raw materials? Do they, you know they have a foraging? I find the whole idea of how you would set this up and how how you survive a fascinating area that I wish they would have explored, but I know they won't know the course they won't. And I think, again, this goes back to the things that we've said about science fiction at that time, or at least the people who were programming. Not really thinking that they had an audience that could look at things with a critical eye and they will probably just putting these episodes together thing. Oh, no one's gonna question. There's no it's going to be wondering, you know, they're just thinking about the, the surface issues. If you will, you know, the whole bit about the, the slave labor force, Charca criminals. I mean, the whole bit at that's what everybody's day think everybody's going to be. Rested. Their they feel a who's going to care about the kind of society that they come from. Well, you know, guess what if the society doesn't withstand any kind of scrutiny than the whole story sort of falls apart? It is it is set dressing for said. This is one of the reasons that I, I really, I don't know if I've expounded upon it here and I'm not going to expound upon it now. But I mean, this is one of the reasons that I really like the TV series or the books for that matter. But the TV series, the expanse it, and I'm not an economy nerd by any stretch of the imagination. But when I watched that I feel like he can understand why people do things that they do to make a living. And why the opportunity, you know, it's kind of like the gold, rush and, and the, the front, tear expansions where, you know, it's a get rich thing, and it's, it's hard work, and it's an lead to different ideas and different cultures different things, and it, it adds a tapestry to it, that can help drive, the story drive the motivation of the characters, and here, we see them the character's motivation, is, they are slave labor. But this is not well thought out, but it could have been. Right. They could be exploited workers and, and they would have to be a lot grubbier and not well groomed. But, but that does look pretty on primetime side and I don't wanna call it primetime Sifi primetime space. Opera. It doesn't look good. So I missed missed opportunity with battle star galactica. There are a number of missed opportunities. Here's another one. So. It would be remiss of us to fail to point out that starbuck is being an idiot yet again. Oh big time. It is a Paul. Right. Is is starbuck trying to distance himself from Cassiopeia because he's, he's too close to her. Everybody keeps saying, but is that really it? Well, the thing that really got me is that I, I kind of felt that it sort of looked like that. And what we were seeing was the same thing that he did it beginning of the series with Athena. It would have been nice to have had that addressed as well. It would have given star Apollo's argument greater credibility, but the third is. But yes, I felt that that was. That's kind of what it was going on. I think it's also the case Starbucks just has a wandering. I I guess I mean I try to put yourself in that situation. And somebody used to be in love with an I'm guessing the argument here is that he was quote unquote in love with her at the the attack occurred. So we'll know this breaking up. It had well then where does Athena fit into the picture. That is a darn good question or is just one of many women that start or did they just not think about it, but I'm gonna go with that one. Yeah. I think it's that one, but so that, but let's, let's just let's go with it and say, take it for face value. That key was concerned enough about Aurora at the time of the attack that he went to her house that night to find out if she survived and it was wrecked. So therefore, she's dead. And we didn't see a moment's grief on starbuck. But why? Should there be? He's kind of. Now. I'm letting go. I'm sorry. That is a major gaffe in my opinion. But then once again, you've got the show runners, who feel that the TV going public is not gonna put two together. But given that situation pretending ignorance, Lena pretending the situation that, that was the woman, he was at least more than a bit of a dalliance with, and he thought she was dead. He legitimately thought she's dead. I'm going to tribute this to went to the house, dad bay. There was even a dead spoken body there. You know and then that was hit and he's gone on to put it all behind. She shows up a live on the ship. I can't exactly blame him. I mean, not exactly like you have to you have to go talk to her. You have to. Yeah. Yeah. Especially if you think that there's this person has been dead. All this time. Even if this is somebody who you've more or less cut romantic ties with I would have I would have felt the same at least to try get you know, deal with that little bit of an issue like, okay, my reality has just been changed. So, yes, the need to want to talk is an important one. I just kind of get the feeling that in the case of Starbucks. There was a heck of a lot more going on, at that moment. So. Yeah. And that's that's the thing. So I mean, if, if they weren't playing starbuck as if he was a, a two-time, which has, but if they were playing starbuck that way, I would mean Cassiopeia should understand Apollo should understand. It's like, of course you need to sit down and have a coffee with her, right? Go out to the Starbucks and have a Cup of Joe. That's doesn't work. Well, does it did occur? Didn't understand all enough Cassiopeia China did. And, and I think the only reason she did sort of understand it is because she was that other woman. Right. Right. And of course, she was. You know, had some experience turning on and turning it off, if you will. Here's here's one so Aurora. She's upset. She's, she's bad at starbuck starbuck her boyfriend presumably didn't bother to check shooting, look, he look in the computer database for the fleet and find out that she was still alive. I can understand why she's upset only for about thirty five seconds. Yeah. And then the thought hits me and goes, I mean Starbucks on the flip and TV as warrior of the year what three weeks ago, four weeks ago you knew he was alive. Where were you, why didn't you call him? Well, I think, obviously will not always lead, but they do kinda talk a little bit about it later. There is a really ugly misconception on the part of the slave labor. They really seem to think that everybody is in and knows about the back. Treatment. And so he's sort she's kinda get the feeling that she was blaming starbuck right alongside everybody else you knew about it. You knew what was going on therefore, your guilty of how badly I being treated. I mean, it's a very, very bad rationale. But I kinda got the feeling that's where she was coming from now a yarn along, but the night of the attack when they were all fleeing onto the refugee ships, and they were all filling out their paperwork and saying, hi, I'm so. And so put me on the database and whatnot. They're head to be a period of time, where everyone in the fleet was trying to make connections with people that they were closely tied to right before they got before they fell into the slave labor before they ended up being before Chaka figured out how to, you know, probably before odometer even put kronas in command of the ship, because, you know, there's still just getting everything they can fly and get everybody on it. And so doesn't if you didn't it didn't fly. It didn't fly with me at first, I'm like, yeah. That sounds like starbuck. I mean he had a theme. He had guests. Yep. And, and if you boxy is to be believed he had all his other girls that he maimed off to on episode right that ones, and then there's this, and that and the. Let's talk about Cassiopeia and Sheba obviously getting to be friends. That's not surprising. I would have expected it. Yeah. I'm not. But we've got we get a chance to see the two of them thinking about love and relationships in this in this bit of soap and I, I wanna say Cassiopeia is kind of she's kinda got it together. Right. Yeah. It's not about possession. I Anna like I say was the other woman and also having been a social later and a previous life, shall we say, I think she's got a better perspective on this in anybody. So, yeah. She's the far more mature of the two in that relationship. But she does know how to play him because she makes him think she's going to the theater with somebody else, and is it a shame. Is it a crime? That's not the word either is it is it a bad reflection on starbuck that it never occurs to him that Cassiopeia isn't gonna go, somebody else, even though she teases him with it. Did you think Cassiopeia was go? To go with somebody else. I never did to she teases it. And she's like tickets onto tickets to go to tickets. I said, I'm going alone. I mean I suspect that she probably as if you guys who are interested in her. I mean, after starbuck killed omega last week, I'm sure that, you know too many suitors are interested in, in her, but it's because he's a bit of killing high. Yeah, I yeah, Sheba on the other hand, very traditionalist. Oh, have you got to tell him and you gotta make him not go and you a like well. Your father's daughter. I don't even know what there is to say about Chaka. I looked at cheapo are just a cheap offer. Tunis I just just a slimeball, and I do appreciate that. He got dissed pretty good there at one point with, you know, someday, you'll be ready young whippersnapper but today not today, so I did a little research. I up one krona's was a commander of the battle star Reagan bike. So I r y CO and Reagan. Yeah. Adama was once his aid to be fair. The difference in their ages doesn't seem like that much. But I guess not at this point, I guess, if you were the aide to the commander of so is, is tie Adamas aid, or is somebody else like omega or something. I do. I don't I, I don't think either of them are Adamas aids. I think that's, that's a completely different position like you know, a captain's yeoman or something like that. Okay. So then we would expect them to be a more junior officer, I suppose to tie, who is a senior officer, but more junior senior off, right. Kind of thing, okay? I would not expect the aid to be a bridge officer. The aid is the aide to the commander or whoever that aid is assigned to omega ample tire Ozzy both bridge officers. I would I don't even know Donna, even has an aid at this point. I, I would probably think that he does, it's just not anybody we've ever met because it hasn't been germane to the story so far. And he's not standing around aiding him now in any way. Okay. I did you hide? I hate doing research for the podcast. But I, I did look one thing up, how many of the battle stars were named in the course of the series. He's and what were their names. Oh, God, I have written down. So I'm sheeting, but I can only of not galactica notwithstanding. I can all seven others. Yeah. But where they, I'm sure there were named. I think we have seen their names was the atlantia. Yup. The only other one that I remember siphoned Pegasus. And now this one set seven apparently, were named or had there, something shot on them or as replying by, I'm pretty sure you have thought you could see some names at the other in the pilot. Yeah, I the propolis the atlantia the Columbia the Pacifica, the Pegasus the Reichen and the TRITON. And here's the weird thing, Reichen means nothing. The others all have some relevance to something, but the Reichen is nothing. It's not from theology. It's not. Yeah. What does that name? I couldn't when I heard at all. It's a battle star I could. Not pin it to any kind. Anything that would fit in terms of the universe that we've been sort of given. I mean haggis okay it's a constellation. Okay. Atlantia locate kind of going off into another direction. But okay. Oh, can sort of see that work. Same thing with pacificist mythology. Yeah. Oh, the. Yes. Right. Gives Pegasus methology TRITON is mythology Atlanta and Pacifica names of our oceans by our oceans are named for Latin found not mistaken. Yeah. Pacific. Yeah. So I have I had a little bit hard time with that one. But I was letting go Reichen. No, I can't I can't make that one work. No. And, and you won't either because I that was part of the research, I tried to figure out where that came from. And it turns out quite a few people online have been trying to figure that out. No one has a clue. There is nothing. There's like a Norwegian company that makes. Aesthetic arms or something by that name. It's just it's weird stuff. But no, there's no mythology doesn't appear to be any word that they can track down to. It's just they just having a couple beers in the staff, writers room and apparently came up with that name. So. Anyway fascinating trivia, there folks. Those are the battle stars. We know eight of them, including the galactic last thing. I have the celestial flies by stick. Yes. And when there's nobody holding the stick this ship goes into a nose dive. Well, the, the control have been shot at. What is it does dive? That's true. I mean, and I did notice that. So I'm not giving it a pass. I'm just pointing out it did get shot. So it was flying off at some strange direction that they didn't want to go. That's it felt like it felt like there was peril there. Yeah. Right. It felt like if we don't get that stick back over the threat level, we're all dead. That's what it felt like I'm thinking, don't eat wouldn't your computers tell you what direction, you went, how far will those up to. Everything got shut up also interesting that they were out of radio range of the galactic. Is that correct? Yes, they were when they were stopped. So they only stop for two hours and the entire fleet got far enough away to send towns that the entire fleet got far enough away that they couldn't reach them by radio range. Yeah. Yeah. I, I. Episode is just it's, it's the word that comes to mind is fab it I don't know why. But it is I just sat here or you're watching it last night, and thinking I, I mean, it's not it's not naked Montague bad. I didn't hate it. Excuse me. No, not that. But it was just I don't know what it was about it, except that, it, it made me nauseous. Okay. I would I would put that in the bad category of it, major nauseous, but less because the ship with plunging down with your all off balance. And the fact that just everybody in the episode was stupid. Cassiopeia. She's only one wasn't imagine that on, on the ball, leave it to the social later. What's next? Is it the hand of God? Yes, it is a hand of. Right. Well, look at the counter there, we've racked this over a quick one. Could have. Never let it be said that we dragged these podcasts out longer than we need to. Well, maybe we do. But anyway.

So before we kind of move forward just want you guys know that we are doing a giveaway so this podcast is going to be super beneficial for anybody that scared of the Corona Virus Etcetera Etcetera. So if you know of anybody that needs to hear this screen shot this show this year. Instagram story telling me happy mark fit and let me know that you are listening. And I'm GONNA give you a chance to win a thousand Dr. So we got people going crazy over curl virus iris right now. On fitness coaches people going absolutely insane. We're talking about like school getting shutdown. There's like gyms that are getting shut down. I've even heard of like cities getting absolutely quarantined Leave their house and it's to the point. Where like in Colona where I live right now? There's like we got sold out of toilet paper and Costco because people in Colona are legitimately like going to costco buying as much toilet paper. They can and they're locking themselves in their house. That's actually happening right now. So there's a lot of fear going around about the Crow Virus. It's all over the media. It's Oliver Social Media. Everybody's talking about it. Everybody's thinking about it and now everyone's thinking like what is this going to do for my online business. And how is this going to negatively affect my on my business? Got A few questions from my trainers. And they're just wondering like how they need to be operating on what they need to be thinking about with the krona virus so I even saw this thing on facebook where somebody posted about how. The Corona virus is going to negatively. Impact your online business. And here's like how to avoid that. So yeah I just want to give you guys straight value in this podcast and teach you guys what you guys need to be thinking about with the krona virus and everything going on right now because right now. Only fitness coaches legitimately. If you're an all night coach right now at this very moment. This is literally the best time ever in the history of life to be an online couch. Ever because right now everybody's thinking about their health everybody's worried about their health and everybody is afraid of the krona virus and getting sick so the locking themselves in their house with toilet paper but all coaches literally right. This second is the best time to be on my coach ever. It's never been a better time this very moment. And you guys can use the facts that the corona virus here as an opportunity to help as many possible people as you can't. So here's what I don't want you to the coaches I before I tell you what I think you need to do in terms of the corona virus. And how you should use this right. Now here's what I do not want you to do on. My coaches is do not buy into the fear like do not buy into this fear that marketers will sell you on the fucking Internet. There's people that are selling the shit right. Now that are like the corona virus is going to negatively. Impact your online business so like. Let me teach you how to avoid that. That's just complete fear and that's bullshit so do not buy into the fear that the corona virus is going to negatively. Impact Your Business. Because that's not true. I'm going to teach you guys. How on this podcast do not buy into the collective insight that you need to lock yourself in your house and Quarantine. Yourself fucking toilet paper. That's just ridiculous. And we've got all this fear surrounding the krona virus. All these people that are locking themselves in their house. And they're afraid but all-night coaches for you guys as leaders of Health and fitness. I'm speaking on my coaches in this podcast. All night fitness coaches. You need to be a leader in an advocate for what it means to live a healthy lifestyle because fear is infectious disease that will cloud the mind and prevent people from thinking properly. Which is why people are locking themselves in their house in like with toilet paper and Shit so I do not want you guys. Only coaches to buy into the fear of the corona virus because history repeats itself right so we had an outbreak of SARS back in two thousand to two thousand four. You guys remember that there's outbreaks ours. Everyone panicked everyone's freaking out. People are walking around the street with like facemask and stuff and like SARS was like one or two years and then it died away. So the corona virus is one of those things where history's going to repeat itself like it's going to be like everybody's going to be talking about in the next few months and then it's GonNa die out here some facts but the corona virus. Here's some quick facts really quick right now over four thousand people have died from the krona buyers. Which is why people are freaking out right. Six hundred and fifty thousand Americans die every year of heart disease. Six hundred and fifty thousand and we're coming out with new flavors of fucking doritos right. Three hundred thousand people die of obesity every year. Three hundred thousand people die of obesity every single year. And we're coming out with new flavors of Coca Cola and so everybody right now. The collective Internet everybody in the Internet right now is afraid of the corona virus and so they're fucking mocking missiles in their house but three hundred thousand people per year in America Diet will be city three hundred thousand six hundred and fifty thousand. Americans die every year of heart disease and we're obsessing over the corona virus. Let's fucking real your guys like we've got people that are locking themselves in their house. Rolls a toilet paper rolls and bags of Doritos but these people are more likely to die from the bags of Doritos than the fuck in corona virus. So let's get real here on. My fitness coaches like this is an opportunity to really like open people's eyes and make them aware that like Yo it's like you've got higher risk chance of dying of heart disease and obesity catching corona virus. So what is going to mean for Your Business? Like what does this ALEC THE KRONA VIRUSES? What does it mean for Your Business? Because even though it's a collective fear and it's like I think it's completely ridiculous this is what is GonNa mean for your all my fitness business. So if you are currently in gym trainer right now if you're currently in MJ trainer like Your Business is going to suffer. So if you're an engine trainer your business is going to suffer because right now there's a lot of things that are getting shut down like the NBA season was cancelled. Nhl Season was cancelled. So there's a lot of things that are getting shut down so if you're an end gym trainer there is a chance that your Jim will get shut down or that people won't be able to use your gym so I'm just going to be straight with you guys like in gym trainers right. Now is a very bad time gym trainer. Because there's a chance that your gym I get shut down and people are locked themselves in there fucking house toilet paper and Rita so in gym trainers straight up. You're in trouble like this. Is the time that you need to learn how to grow an online fitness business because this is the time that people are going to be on their phones in their house looking at the Internet like browsing social media looking for solutions for how to fix themselves or rid themselves of the chance of getting the corona virus. That's people looking at social media for right now. People are on social media. And they're on Google. They're looking for like how do I not catch the corona virus? That's what people are thinking. Everyone's afraid of catching it. So they've got like Costco Soda in the Toilet Paper that blows my face off like legit so people are in their house toilet paper trying to figure out how not to catch a corona virus. So if you're an all my fitness coach right now. What does this mean for you? It means all my coaches that right. Now is the best time to be pumping out content on a consistent and regular basis on how to stay healthy and how to have a proper immune system right now is literally the best fucking time for an online coach to be spitting value on why. It's so important to take care of your health and how you're less likely to get sick if you have a strong immune system right now. All night fitness coaches is literally the best fucking time to be speaking to these people that are sitting in their house locking their doors right now with toilet paper and doritos right. Now is the best time to be doing. A facebook live talking about how getting more sleep and having a calorie balance is better for your immune system washing your hands. Yes that's what we're talking about right. Now is the best time for all my coaches to be providing value for their audience with expectation. Nothing in return and I WANNA be fucking clear about something right so like the Internet is kind of fucked. Sometimes I'm just going to be straight like unit it's Kinda fucked because here's what people do right people use as a selling point. People use spears a selling point because people are afraid of the corona virus. There's motherfuckers online right now. That are like if your business is about to tank. You should take this training and teach you what to do if you think that krona virus is going to negatively impact your business. I think that's greasy is shit. I also think it's Super Greasy on my coaches to be like you should sign up from only coaching program. Because of Corona virus is out there. And you might died like that's greasy EST shit so like here's what I think is fucking real on my coaches like right now. All my coach is the best time for you to actually be a fucking good human and talk about how to stay healthy. And how to be proactive with your immune system and why exercise is more important than washing your hands in terms of like getting yourself fucking healthy and talking about the shit that like everyone's trying to sell for free like be a good fucking human which is why. I wanted to come on here and I wanted to do this. Podcast literally was scrolling through facebook. And I saw some marketer that was like promoting to me and it was like if your business is about to take because the krona virus. Take my free training. You motherfucker like people are actually using the shit to sell. It pisses me off so right now on. The coaches is literally the best time for you guys to be stepping up as leaders and posting homework outs. So that people that are locked in their house have a way to exercise. Even though the gym is closed. Right right now is the best time. Online fitness coaches to be providing value. On why having proper gut health and having a better immune system is going to be beneficial for. You not get sick right. You see what I'm getting at here. So all my coaches. There's a lot of people that are locked in their house right now. So there's a big opportunity to get in front of their face and show up and deliver some value and right now is the window of opportunity for all night coaches to really step up and own their power and provide fucking value. So like you've got a couple of options here on my coaches because the krona buyers is here it's real everyone's talking about it. Here's a couple options and I'm talking to a lot of people that listen podcast. There's probably like five to six hundred people at download every episode so. I know that there's going to be a wide variety of people that listen to this podcast. So there's two types of people that are gonNA listen to this fucking podcasts. Okay number one. The first type of person that listens to this podcast is going to be the type of person that locks himself in their house with fucking toilet paper and I'm sorry if that's you and they're going to blame everything in their life on the corona virus. They're going to say. Oh you know I was going to go to the gym today. But the crow viruses out there so I didn't and I was GONNA eat healthy. There's no point because of Corona virus this year and I wanted to build my online business but then the corona virus came and it was really really hard because nobody wanted to spend money because everyone was in their house. That's number fucking one. That's a first type of person that's going to be listening to this. And if that's used sorry number two the second type of person that is going to listen to. This podcast is the type of person that's going to use this. This corona virus as a window of opportunity to give love to spread love and optimism. Instead of fucking fear to spread love and optimism and to give actual like practical value where your listener can walk away with something that they can do to improve their lives despite the shit that's going on in the world because like three hundred thousand people a year die from obesity and we're all obsessing over the krona viruses killed four thousand people right like let's get fucking real here like as all my coaches like now's the time to step up is a leader. Spread some love and optimism positively when everybody else is like living in fear so like my opinion on the corona virus. Like where I'm at with it my opinion. Here's my thing I'm literally GonNa continue doing my life as usual. I'm going to continue to provide from audience. Which is why. I'm showing up right now on this podcast for you on my fitness coaches. Because I wanted to give you some insight and I don't want you to live in fear that everything your life is. GonNa Fuck and fall apart because the talking about the krona virus. I'm going to continue to show up and I'M GONNA work out for my gym sessions. I'M GONNA continue to wipe down my fucking machines when it continue to shop. My Grocery Stores Globeop my day. Take care of my health drink. My water eat my food because I think that people that live in. Fear Aren't really living at all and I don't know about you. Being locked in my house was some toilet paper and Torito's doesn't really sound like an awesome day like Hashtag heart. Disease drills are delicious. But let's hear so my coaches. Here's the best possible advice that I could give you right now for free. And I don't want anything. I don't want you to buy my shit. I just want you guys to listen and get some value start pumping out valuable content on how to improve your immune system because right now like great marketing is joining the conversations in people's heads and sleazy marketing is using that conversation to get them to buy shit. Just fucked which pisses me off. While I'm doing this podcast. But anyways start pumping oh valuable content to your audience and teach them how to improve their immune system and improve their health. Start serving your audience and letting them know that staying healthy is the best way to prevent getting sick right so just stay healthy drink more water. Get more sleep. Have a balanced caloric intake from non processed foods and your immune system will be stronger and you'll be much less likely to get sick like start. Educating people why Movement and exercise is great for the fiscal body and how it will improve your immune system. Because let's be honest on the coaches. There's a lot of people that are like afraid right now right so because everyone's living in fear they might be thinking like Oh. I need to cancel all my subscriptions and cancel my payments. Because what if making no money in my Babo bub-bubba about shut the fuck? Educate your clients on homework outs. In case there are afraid to go to the gym. Their case afraid to go to go and finish coaches that. Listen to this right now is if you have clients you guys need to talk to them about the krona virus. You need to share your opinion. You need to give recommendations because every single one of your clients right now is also thinking about the krona virus. Because it's all over there fucking newsfeed every. Tv Like in the gym right now is a corona virus corona virus. It's on everyone's minds. So all my coaches that are listening to this especially my clients. You guys have a lot of clients and you need to educate them on what your best practices for right now. It's like what are your recommendations for people right now with the Crow Virus. Like what would you recommend? Educate your clients on home workouts. Let's be honest like even though I think it's completely bullshit. Ach Yourself and your house and fucking ignore your life because of little outbreak. Even I think it's bullshit. Some people are going to be afraid to leave their house. So educating your clients on homework and things to do in case they're afraid to go out and case ready to go to the gym so guys in gym trainers going to be straight with you. Your Business is going to suffer. It is because right now. People are afraid to leave their house. Never mind go to the gym and so it's already hard enough to get people to go to the gym and now that they have legitimate. Excuse like I don't want to catch the current virus. A lot of people are gonNA use this as their opportunity not to go to the gym. So if you're an end gym trainer Your Business will suffer straight up. I don't want you to buy my shit. I'm just telling you the truth. If you're an online coach right now is the best opportunity for you to show up and serve like show up and serve your audience and don't do it from a place of I want you to buy my fucking program like do it for places like Y'all I know you guys are thinking about the virus right now so I wanted to give you some insight and I wanted to give you three practical tips to get a better immune system so that you're less likely to get sick like do it from a place of like actual fucking service where you care about people and you want to be healthy. Right guys fear cells and like I get it like there's marketers on my facebook right now that are like join my free challenge and I'll teach you how to be safe or you know how to protect your business with the krona by. It's just fucking bullshit so for me. I JUST WANNA pump out straight value for you guys only coaches so impersonal. Trainers like your business will suffer. So if you have imprisoned clients right now my recommendation would be to get them online immediately and let them know that you know like a lot of people are afraid to leave their house. I highly recommend fitness coach program. And I definitely think it's a good move because you don't want to avoid your health because you're more likely to get sick. If you're at home eating Doritos and processed foods because you're afraid to leave your house so like all night. Training is actually very good for everyone right now because people don't have to leave their house to get the workout in so if you're an end gym trainer. I would highly recommend moving people online. And if you're all mine trainer right now and you have online clients like make sure you're educating your clients on what your opinion on the Krona viruses. Because they're already thinking about it. Everybody's thinking about it so it's important to get into their heads and give them your thoughts on the corona virus that they're not sitting there afraid and wanting to cancel program because they're not educated on proper system drinking enough water getting enough fucking sleep like they don't know these things that's why they hired you so make sure you're educating your clients and letting them know what your best practices are and finally on my coach. I'M GONNA end this podcast with this if you live in fear. You're not living at all so instead of using this as a chance to buy into the societal fear. Use this as an opportunity to show up in fucking serve with the knowledge that you have as a health practitioner and give your audience value by Chopin Elisha and teach people what to do now that the current of Syrian. And everyone's afraid like this is how you protect your immune system. This is my recommendation for homework out this recommendation for like mindset like this is how you keep yourself positive blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah I give fucking value. Don't use this as a sales tactic. Use this as like I actually care about people and I want people to our guys. So that's it. That's my rant on the corona virus. Hopefully you guys got some value. Thank you so much for tuning in misses is the change is make money on my trainer. Podcast again I don't want you guys to buy my shit. I literally just want you guys to go out there and make a difference in the world so if this podcast inspired one of my trainers go out there and start bucking speaking some actual value into the universe and not trying to get some money into their pockets. That's fucking awesome. Because I just think that like everyone marketing right now to the fear of the current viruses like a sleazy mother trucker. So I fucking hated all right guys.

A Conversation with Ricky Roxburgh (Tangled Writer Interview)

"Hello everyone and welcome to a very special episode of Krona Conversations. I'm Caleb and today we are honored to have the great the marvelous the fantastic Ricky Roxburgh here with us. I Hate Ricky is a lifelong Disney fan. Who went from writing? Stand up comedy to animated films to being hired as a writer for Walt Disney television animation. He helped bring so many of the tangled the stories that we love to life and so were honored to have the opportunity to chat with you today. Ricky thanks for being here thanks for having me Super Bowl ticket get the invite but through. This is how you know you've made it once you're on our show you know your paycheck. We're not paying you for this by the way. I'm sorry we thought we'd start off with some questions for you. I guess the first one is what are you doing to stay busy now with the whole stay at home orders and all that will my contract with Disney finished up in the beginning of March 'cause WE I was like I did a couple more shows with these knee and then that finished in March because our season on monsters monsters at work that finished in the beginning of March and then I started I just did a feature which I'm thinking of another draft coming on that so I'm writing feature but it's not a Disney feature but isn't animated feature and I can't see who it's for where it's from but but I think that's the Freeman which is good which means they'll come out. I think it's coming out in early. Two thousand twenty two so. I'm doing that and then it was like free stuff. I'm doing awesome relations on that. Thank you thank you and then there's always the possibility that I you know. Go back home to Disney. So how did you go from writing? Stand up to writing animated shows for the mouse. Well I've always been a Disney nerd And I use that in that term lovingly because I that is describing me and well when I was a kid. I wanted to work on the jungle cruise. That's what I wanted to do Because I just wanted to live in Disney world and be there all the time work there We've been there once want. Yeah how long ago thousand eight. Oh Wow there's a while I was there then though I lived behind disneyworld than refined. Oh Yeah I remember you. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah we basically like. There's just always a goal like once once I found out that like people make these things I it was just sort of. I guess it was sort of a dream of mine to do it and I can't say that I deliberately like was focused on it all the time because I just sort of it was one of those things that like you sort of wish for it but you don't ever think I never thought I it wasn't like Oh if I do this and then like I can't say carefully plotted anything Like I I. I'm from New York originally and so I. Would you stand up and sketch comedy there? Because that's that's what I was into and like in school. I sort of went that way and then I had I had a professor there that told me I should. I should write movies or think about writing like movies or TV shows so I started like practicing that and and You know reading everything I could. I'd already I'm already a huge movie. Buff and everything but what the thing that really led to it was that I basically like quit. Stand up move to Florida and I was just. I was teaching creative writing and then I wrote a pilot and injured it into a competition That sorry this is going to be a little bit of a long answer because it's a meandering road but Because there is no like I just sent you a job application I I basically bad happened and then I kinda got the bug again and there was a small animation studio. There used to be a Florida animation studio that mule on and stitch and stuff that shutdown and brother bear that. Shut down and a bunch of small studios started. And when I went to Florida I got a job on the script. I wrote engine. The competition got like got option by Fox and like did it never got made. But it's sort of like got a little bit of traction and there was a small studio in celebration. Florida run by a former Disney feature animator. He was the lead supervising animator on like grandma and chieh-fu in Milan And I like randomly sent my stuff to him like I found out about the studio and I sent my stuff in and I got hired and there was like the studio was like a powerhouse of people like really really young young people who'd never worked before but like everybody has worked there has gone onto Lucasville or blue sky or something and One of my basically like from that studio that's ended shutting down Kind of led to like being able to write a movie and you're just kind of one thing leads to another or whatever but the thing that took me back to Disney was the lead character designer at our studio is. He's now the lead character designer on duck tales. And you like one of my best friends he was there and I. I ended up writing an episode of how to train. Your dragon for the the Dragons rates to the edge for dreamworks and while I was out there I went to lunch with him and he was like. Oh come meet this Guy Shane. He helped design. Help design on how to train your dragon below that ended up being one of the CO creators of tangled tangled. The series and Chris was Christmas. They're also you know pro. You know Chris Sonnenberg so I really just went to say hello to them. Like I didn't mean for anything to happen and I like go in the media so it wasn't a meeting it was just them sitting in a room. I went in and say hi and I ended up We ended up just randomly talking about frozen and I was. I always have like a little bit of a chip on my shoulder about frozen not because I hate frozen but because everybody like it made more money so it Kinda get. It's like the pretty girl that gets all the attention and Mike but tangled apartments and I basically I hand to God. I had no idea they were making a tangled show and tangles one of my favorite movies. And so I basically kind of broke down really fast. Why tangled as a superior film in every way and why like why and they're like you know we're making a tangled show right and I'm like did not know that. And they did have one piece of art on the wall or something like that. And so I said No. When are your valuable? And I'm like well I'm freelancing for DreamWorks. Now so right now because when you're freelancing you're not beholden to any one thing so they asked me you send their stuff and that's how they they asked me if I moved to California After they read my stuff and So yeah that's how sorry I know that's a it's it's a it's a winding road but I but there's no that's why like sometimes people like message and be like. Oh how do I get into it? And I'm like I don't know man. It's really like stumbling around telling jokes. Santa Comedian in Florida for a New York. Really poor and suffer for a few years. Quit find a small animation studio that only has like twenty five people working there have that studio shutdown suffer for a couple of years right a couple of movies that don't ever come out and then eventually your friend that worked there will have moved up the ranks in Disney. A little bit and go to meet him and then go meet somebody. It's like all according to plan. Yeah if somebody told me this is exactly how you have to do it. I wouldn't have been like if somebody would've told me how to do it. I wouldn't have been able to like it's Really really crazy But I mean he's just in between writing all the time and working up so when when the opportunity came I was ready. You know but Definitely was with was not a Well I just wrote my script incentive also so I guess you kind of answered this but you were a big tangled fan before you started writing. Yes you're the show. Yeah now. I've I've tangled. His is in my in my top five Disney movies. So it's it's like before before I before I started on the show I you know I could quoted and everything yeah. I'm a big Disney fan in general tangled so to be one of my favorite.

I love the is in the animated version. How they do the scene Mickey sad now. I just like Jane Better Than Wendy. I GUESS. Yeah. Maybe she's feisty way argue gene seems fun okay back to tangle. I was interested to know how you guys came up with the episode titles. Because sometimes you have those fun puns in there or they play on existing books like the great expectations. One is that something. The writer comes up with Great expectations I thought of. And like sometimes it's weird like like there there when we write the episode. Sometimes we don't have the episode title in mind yet like the title doesn't come to the leader so we'll just write something like I mean it didn't give it a title for production and yes. Sometimes the title is just sort of like. Oh we definitely know what we're GONNA call this and it's the most of them most of them. I think the titles these clothes. But then there's other ones were like. I don't know what we're GONNA call this like example like Fitz Herbert Pi That was something that like Jas Our head writer just just wrote like he was like. Oh well I'll just call it this right and then it just no one ever changed it and it just went all the way through and it was like. Oh I guess that's it is being called back but it's not like it's definitely I? It was it was literally. Just I if you're working title so typically typically the writer would come up with the title for Jesus we'd come up with the title if If he's working or whatever and like sometimes it was fitz. Herbert sticks out is one of those ones. That's like nobody change this. Nobody thought of changing this one and then there are there. Were other ones that like we changed it. Like three quarters of the way you know like by the third draft changed it to something Usually was the writer that we think of it and so the reason and it would usually be like if it was a we look for either title that just sort of says what the episode is or something that was just fun like Pascal Story obviously is like a plane. That's what Ha- that's about Pascal. And then like great expectations. Is You know a reference to the Dickens novel critic Great expectations so And I just thought they had kind of like similar themes or so but yeah usually up to the writer. And then Chris or Christopher in the executives would approve of it Are you the person responsible for the loss treasure of Hers Sewn? I'm not I am I'm responsible for it. Only in the sense I was like in the room. Sometimes like you know helping pitch some gags or whatever she will. Imdb line to me. I guess that's that was my favorite episode of the whole series. I think so whatever however you can cheat into that one props props for that. It's so funny. Yeah that that that one was written by my good friend Dave Schiff And it was Boarded by Tom. Caulfield who is you know Sorry directed by Tom Caulfield. And I mean not sure because the board teams rotated so I can't I can't remember who Who the other board artists were on it but I remember them Like I was in the room until they do some punch up gags or whatever but I didn't write that episode But I remember I was definitely it was definitely one of those episodes that was like really really hard to crack because like. I think it might have. I think it might have been like my fault. See like why. Don't I think I think it is my fault in that? I remember being a meeting sing like why. Don't we do it episode? It's a mad man bad world where like everybody's but lake But maybe I'm just assigning myself credit where I don't deserve it. It's harder like sometimes it's sometimes there's things they're like very clear and you're like oh. I definitely do that. But that's I mean I can't I definitely can't see credit for that episode that that's definitely Tom and Dave And and you know the rest of the fourteen All the way that the that never remember being in the room when they pitched it and You know because we have the the pitch meetings and You know the the crew and the executives and everybody are in there and they're just flipping through the boards and reading it and everybody was like cracking up at the all the different dads and stuff so we knew it was going to be a fun. Okay well we'll just have a few more questions here and then we'll move onto something fun okay now. That the show's over. Do you have any opinion? You'd like to share about Cassandra's mother or I mean Cassandra's father who got together with Gotha. I have I have my I have my thing. Yeah Yeah we WANNA WE WANNA know. This is my thing disclaimer. This is not really. This is not anything not come from. Chris. This is not any. He's not an actual conversation in a room where it was going to be an episode so disclaimer disclaimer disclaimer. It's just me like in my. You know when you're like literally you're when you spend almost four years. I was in that like working on tangled as long as I was in high school. So it's like we're in college you know so it's like you spend like. I remember one time meeting puzzle in the park With my kids and I was like I was like you know and I'm like I'm I spend five days a week thinking about you and what you'll do and we can get you into trouble and we can get you out of trouble like and it sounds stalker but it's really like that's all you do is think about characters and stuff so naturally like when you're dealing with one of your main characters and you find out who their mom is like their DADS. Yeah my feeling is that it's Shorty. And here's a here's my here's my evidence. Okay now sure. He's naturally like he looks pretty old rate but if you subtract twenty years fray and your age pretty fast you the boozy you know And and it was a different time too so so many faster you know in appearance unless you're Eugene And he In the movie he meets gafa outside of this ugly duckling and he's kind of hitting on her so I am. I imagined a scene twenty three years earlier where he's not so old and not so aged booze and Maybe not as Slovenly right and a Young Gospel goes into snugly duckling on her way from having like the aged and So her Her body is healed and ready and they they have any and I imagine that he picked her up the same exact way I imagine he said like. Oh who's this tawdry or like that? And then but it actually worked because he was like younger more handsome and then they sort of an evening together and then That happened And then I so I kind of mentioned this like the movie part is being like. That's why you know like it's. It's like a joke when I don't know that's that's sort of how I how I imagine it going down. We're on board with that. We've always said we think. Shorty is kind of evil. Yeah I'm sure he's the half of Kasane he's good. He's good but he's like I don't know like I said that is totally like the kinds of weird things you think when you're going stir crazy in a writer's room all day you know eating unlimited ams like so it's not And you yes. Yes so that that does not mean That does not mean that. That was the intention and wasn't like like. I said it wasn't Chris or anybody else's intention. It was something that like I was. I was like who is the dad. Like there's definite like it would be too much of a coincidence for the captain to be a dad captains like not that way like if he was you know he's not going around hooking up with. Pia Now Mike Shorty about twenty two twenty three years earlier always hanging out in a bar. You meet people things happen. I mean think about how weird and fun he is now. Being when he was young he did some crazy stuff. Yeah he's away for. The party was probably really charismatic. Maybe a boat. I don't know okay Last question for now now that season three's officially ended. You have any favorite moments from that season or episodes that. Stand out to you that you're especially proud of wow well season. I mean CASSANDRA's Cassandra's revenge is just my favorite episode of the of the series And so so that that whole that whole episode. I'm particularly proud of like because just getting to do with the tent poles and you know be able to be worked on on this. You know on on something like this epic That the team was able to make into the like fun. You know. There's there's like really intense dark parts. I just thought I was really. I was really proud of that. And you know it's like the best Alan Menken songs series in waiting in the wings. Everyone go re watch that episode tonight. Yes Hey Anna.

Anchor Dot. Fm Slash start. Now we're going to do a little tangled trivia quiz. Oh God oh no either that or singing. So so little sister is offscreen and she came up with this quiz We have not seen any of the questions so we're in the same situation. You are right now okay. Are we on the scene team or rushing to like is it? It's A. It's a friendly competition. We're all in this together but we're also all of this ourselves so I think how this should work is we'll Go and turn and Lizzy you can ask us the question and then if we get wrong than the next person gets shot answering it. Would you like to go first? Since you're the guest or should should we do ladies First Ladies First? I'm a gentleman on the spot. Okay question what? What is the age difference between Rapunzel and Eugene? Oh I know this because I decade twenty six. And then she's eighteen so it'll be eight years your final answer. No no okay so now. Let's let's move it onto ricky Hatton. It's five years five years. Yeah because when the atchison six years but she's I mean she's eighteen. You know the movies hurry. Even if they and the show takes three years and it's his twenty twenty sixth birthday In the in the midseason of season three so she is about. There's no there's no like birthday episode for her in the Third Season. But she's about twenty one in that saying he is twenty six so there might be so. I believe. I'm doing the math correctly. Three years from eighteen is is twenty one She may she may not be exactly twenty one in that thing but he the time line of the show is three years and so that third season And that's also farther like Cassandra. Revenge skips ahead when it's actually his birthday at like skips ahead a few months because they sort of settled before she time line and the writer's room to keep track of all this. We knew like going into the that that the series was three years of her life like so and the idea like one of the ideas that like every like the beginning of like she would have like a birthday like every single season. We're there's like a whole thing in the first season with tracking like planning her birthday party or something which I always thought it was a little. I don't know how we're GONNA track planning a birthday party for a whole season but like the idea that her birthday was was was coming up. But yeah at least in tangle the series I would say it's I would say it's five years I mean I don't know that makes me feel a little better long. That's a big age gap so it would have made him twenty three in the movie and hurry okay And then three years. She's twenty one. He's twenty six point for Ricky. No point grab on to me. Give it to give me a good one. Oh good one you WANNA get on. Okay What Kingdom did Flynn and King Frederick tried to steal a royal seal from legacy one question or something. I don't what can I'm exposing myself as a terrible fan right now. What's the what's the first letter? E E Aaron spelled with an E. A. That's wrong no doubt it. I cannot say confidently. I'll give you a hint. It's a beer beer okay. The twenty she's only only twenty. Okay we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA skip to ricky now equis equis. I feel like I knew that she totally knew that okay. to to zip right now we got in trouble for naming the kingdom's after beers after a while so who voices found spot. Who VOICES SPELLED FOR? I know this. One Zachary Levi correct. I love your favorite character. Feldstein might be my favorite character. Wonder you've of the lost treasure episode. Iv Comedy Gold Anna. Can you complete huck foots ballot own? But I'd give anything to hear you blank blank. Those three words I long to hear I'd give anything to hear you blank blank. Those three words I long to hear yes new singer seeing a sing loud. We've watched the show. We probably I don't do it either. That's that's episode. So I don't know I like I mean I've I've seen it you know but I don't know the The the words that one enough I wanNA end on that note. So we look a little more respectable okay. He was the winner. So congratulations wasn't answer sweet racing and that was a tough one. That was a play deep. Cut Now that we've had a little fun. I thought we would finish up with a bonus round a speed round of questions and the rules for this. Are you can answer an only one word. You can use a full sentence but you can only use a full sentence three times so you have three sentences you can use this period but otherwise you can only answer in one word. Okay that makes sense yes. Three seconds is but one word. Mostly I'm gonNA keep shocking sentences. You Got Okay. Start off the speed round okay Which characters your least favorite Fidel? What was your favorite song from the show waiting in the wings? Well as the favorite line that you wrote this is going to be a sentence answer so the counter is the sentence I mean. 'cause waiting in the wings is like. I can't say just one word with the title I gave you that one Could be a favorite joke. Maybe just a favorite free. Oh okay okay okay yeah. My favorite is The seal of approval. That's my favorite fever and is probably the biggest fan of the seals i. I died at the the navy seal part here animals the manatee and so they're kind of related and I I was over the moon giddy doing that because like there wouldn't be like trevor couldn't be in an episode like it wasn't like that was a rule it was like like I wouldn't do it if I didn't have like a really like so. It was like almost bringing him in. Wh How am I going to do what the fact that they were honest ship was all to get to that joke like it could have been? It could've been anywhere like it could have been you know wherever wherever trevor was taking them could have been anywhere you know but like it was specifically. I was like okay. Well Navy seals thing so they put him in a boat. So that's why like a like an we even kept it from the crew like what that joke would be so that when he was pitched it was like. I'm sure like you know there are people like the fourteen. Whatever the hurt but like so for for the pitch like the whole team if you like Like cringing sorry. I love it way too much. It's so bad I appreciate that so much. Funny we were talking about What Cassandra might do once. She left corona on a couple of episodes ago and I think Anna theorized that she would become captain of the guard for the seals I like you got to full. Sensors left them. What is your favorite color? Green Very unbranded wearing my favorite. This is my favorite South Africa. Oh I have asked that question. I wrote all these questions by question. As what which hosted your favorite of chronic conversation pass. Both I'll say word. So what was your first job as a kid or Did you have a weird first job or my first job was working in. Cvs Pharmacy a CVs without a pharmacy. Which was weird so people would come in. Who is just yeah? It was like so people would come in expecting that. They could fill our prescription and we'd be like no. We don't have a pharmacy of like what turn around and walk. I was I was just like in this era. Ghent sixteen year old kids. I was like I was like yeah. Obviously there's no pharmacy like but it's a CBS. And like. I thought they wouldn't someone's if Republican Eugene had a kid. What were they thought about this week. This isn't even characters could assay shelled Spar Junior. That'd be that would be a very dramatic situation Virginia Even though they both have the same voice I would say if it were well. Okay for Roy Eugene would give it a cool name because he grew up without a cool name so I think yeah so I think you name Him Flynn for real. Maybe I don't think he would name him. Flynn because I feel like carries a negative connotation for him but I feel like he would name him something like like Raven or something like that. But rapunzel wouldn't let them name him that so this is really Wow this is like the hardest question because I feel I feel like this is the kind of thing I would have to like brainstorm in the room with everybody and throwing things out and then I wouldn't. I wouldn't think so awful awful at noon people awful but they're both such different people. They'd probably traveled aside into okay. You know what I would say. I'm going to go with. His Dad is named Edward. So I'm going to say hey. I'm going to see where puzzle would Edward Frederic or Frederick Edward Anyway after the parents and depending on dead Fred I don't know who would be the first. And who would be the middle and then for the daughter daughter I would say with one and artsy name or something. Something really out there hippie. Something my instinct. My instinct is my instinct is is willow On after the or or she would keeping him with the flower theme something like Lily. Oh yeah so I go there. This isn't part of the bonus round. I just thought of this but were there ever any plans to bring willow back at all for another episode. There was there was an episode that we were thinking of with willow for the third season there where he's just such a cool character. Yeah I missed her was I don't know I think I think it just might have kind of fallen away in the. The Times that we did have we did have plans for for another willow can live on in our heads enough forgotten. If you could pick one best friend to have from the series who would be your best friend scowl listener human human. It would be. I guess fun friend. I guess he inlands our good friends. Okay if you had to pick. Would it be cure? Or Catalina this Catalina. Ooh She's nicer turns into do you some favors and her wolf form intimidates Indiana. She's she's more. My speed is Republicans. Last name Corona no follow up question. What is her last name? Who remains a mystery might be of Corona? But Yeah I mean. I don't know that I guess now I guess? Now it's Herbert. Yeah that's quite any refunds will fit server okay. Well that's going to wrap things up for us You have any questions. Oh yeah an house. One more question so Since you are fan of stand up comedy I was wondering. Do you like Marvelous Mrs Mazel. Oh Yeah of course. Didn't mess you up at all. When Zachary Levi came onto the show. Because I was so hard for me because I kept thinking of Eugene whenever I heard him talk and I began to love his character and like got used to it. But I threw me for such a loop I was like. Oh my gosh Eugene. But I don't know what's happening. There's a short the you kind of Nuwari short short. That where he he does that kind of man that Kinda voice which was fun so there's sort of a blending of the two it doesn't I mean like 'cause you see him. It's weird like the thing that threw me for a loop the most with respect to. It's like because once you you know you see them in person and you meet them so it's like. Oh that's a person that I've met. That's on that show. So that's more of the weird thing Yeah and then like I remember the week like the weirdest thing was the first time we had. It was the first time I met. Him is the second time but there was a we had A. We had a story meeting where you're kind of presenting the overall arc and everything to him in him and Mandy and so they were both in the room and we were. It was the first time I'd ever been in a place with both of them at the same time and I remember like sort of like looking down and there's only a six of us in the Mesnier whatever and I'd like look down at the table deliberately not look at them so I could just hear them like Jean talking and then lake so that to me was like the. That's like the most free but like seeing him like when I am it's like it's a little bit weird because you're like like that's not true. Sam I met him. You know but it is. You know so it's Yes yes But it's cool to see him on there because the thing about him is that he's like works. He worked so hard and he gives like you know really like gives a thousand percent when he's on the show so it's like whenever whenever I see him doing anything. I'm always like pleased because like he whether it was our show or or that. You know it's like you know. He's given a thousand percent so you're like proud you know like he's doing good. Thanks for answering all our tangled and on tangled related question of course to. It's been a pleasure having you on thinking on the balanced before we sign off.

Like! Berries in and. Twigs and leaves and flowers. You can pick this stuff and then people buy it. And, you make potions out of his stuff. You can find stuff you can find like I'm or somewhere, and then you could go to like a blacksmith in a town. And use. Their. Materials. You can use their materials to make stuff. So crazy it's it gets so intricate, and then this person's like well. Help me find my son. He's been kidnapped by this gang. And then you find out okay well. How do I get there I mean it's just like it's crazy, so I'm stuck on this one level right now. where I'm like at the big boss and putting aetna quotes the big boss. and. I just can't seem to. Beat this guy I. I look online, so it's paused. There is paused in this room, supposed to fight beat. Beat this guy. and. I just haven't gone back in there. I know it's can win those things that when I go back in there and I play I'm praying going to beat it right away. You guys know that those of you play video games. You ever notice that like you might be stuck on a level. This would happen with grand theft auto which Months effect you can be in this open world and go anywhere and drive anywhere. Just go and go and go drive a motorcycle up a mountain I mean it's awesome. You go anywhere, do anything. It's beautiful. Just, keep going going. Then, you could play. Gamble with it within. To like Vegas. A Casino you could actually play horse races. Cards. One arm bandits. Just. Go and go and go. Now imagine if you got secret codes. Nine just drive around town with a tank. No problem. And you don't have to cause destruction and mayhem do it. I love taking the airplanes and helicopters for rides. It's such A. It's such a What's fun to try to land him? But. I also have a lot of fun. Just jumping out of I think they give you a parachute from that mistake. Just I love that. It's just so cool. Affecting you could do that stuff, man, wow! It's so appealing to me. But of course I did you could change your closing. Turn all kinds of stuff. Price they don't have like a superhero costumes. Colleen costumes that'd be funny. I think they had like a where Wolf Mask. I think you could put on a Werewolf may ask. God. What else? Did. They have any legally ask. Just wishing that we something here. It's interesting how you can talk to. People talk bad people. Like it's. It's a way of really. Living vicariously through character in getting away with a lot of stuff without the consequences. People say video games are bad. I mean whatever information you give to a person. Especially little. To Soak it up, so can it up. Whatever information we give to those little ones growing. which is just beautiful. Because then? You know directing them towards the things that are enjoyable in in in a like, and they see the other thing about video games to is that it challenges your critical thinking. It enhance your exploratory nature your imagination. It's it's really crazy. It's amazing. Those Lucas Arts Games the LUCASFILM Games Maniac Mansion. Zach mccracken. Island I played later. But those two right there. Those two Lucasfilm Games I always wanted to play the Indiana Jones kinks. They only made it for the IBM. Commodore Sixty Four. I loved it, my brother and I my God. We never stopped playing. We never stop playing. He was right there in a laundry room. We just never. Of course, the parents like watch planes. I I'm I'm exploring my imagination. I'm exploring my imagination. And then since we didn't have the Internet, I go off to school. Josh, go off to school and then we'd be thinking about these all day long. How do we solve this puzzle? How do we solve the puzzle? And we come home and unlike Josh I have an idea, and then he's like Kurt I have an idea. Okay, let's try. Let's test them out there so strange. They just might work and sure enough. That along was mad. Magazine it really. Forced me to look beyond which there and test out the strangest things. taught me you just never know kind of surprises are GONNA show what? S- town. It's astounding. It's crazy that people post walk through video games. This year follow this year. They do this then you do that, then you do this well then. What's the fun of like exploring the territory? Who I? Nobody has to take my side I'm just. Why even venting his homeland? Why is this even something I'm completing? My complaining. Are you still listening? Blair you listening? Are these thoughts you've had. You play video games. What do you do to entice your imagination? What do you do to? Excite your. Boundless creativity just letting your mind go. Like David Lynch, she'll just sit there and stare out the window. Do Daydream. Do Do. Do do appreciate the benefits of daydreaming. Appreciate, the the divide that you can't put the needle right in the groove. And Group get the feel that Rau- just prefer raw vibe RAV. I brawl vibe. Good advice good feelings. No analyzing no analyzing no criticizing. Judge. No Rub a DUB DUB. There, it is just pure. What is it? Put your ear the trek. The natives, the natives would do put their ears to the track. Made here the train. Figure out. They know they know. How far away that train was. There train is oh. Way over in Chattanooga. That'll be here. But at time that cloud over there in the sky reaches there in the sky. That's when we'll see the train. Mentioned that being able to tell the time by the clouds in the sky, and how fast the winds blowing. My Buddy Robs Zimba Robert Mega LAKOTA. Lakota tribe. He was telling me how he was helping out. US, doing background work on the set of red state I think it was Kevin Smith movie? It was helping out there and. He ended up telling the AD. Something like Oh. You know what? We're going to get rain here. It's GonNa rain pretty hard like in the next ten minutes in the guys like will the weather report says there isn't you know isn't going to be any ratings. there. They're shooting. Shoot Office in the rain comes. And it goes away. And he goes, and then Roberts looking at the sky. He goes over eighty his book. We're GONNA get some. Some more rain clouds coming through the guys like outcome on. That's so anyway basically. After that second time around you know the third time's a charm, so but this. Sometimes it takes two times before with. Oh! This person is tuned into particular intuition that maybe. I want to take heed to. It's like a person who listens to your your your engine and they go. I could tell by the chain A. I could tell by those little tiny for customers. Those little clinks clinks those little things I could tell where in the wearing the That's a muffler. That's a muffler issue right there. Well that right there. That's in the alternator. Oh, here's something going on with the antifreeze yet, radiator. So they hear that stuff. They know about that stuff I'm GonNa pay attention to that guy now. Obviously people can abuse that power, but. If, it's a real good someone who's just. I'm reporting to you. What's your what's going on? Here's what's happening. Why not listen to them? So this ad ended of listening to assistant. Director. This assistant director listener robber. And he brings them over. To Kevin Smith in the video images, they call it the area where they're over there by the monitors and everything. They got the Monitor's. They've got the. All the equipment they got the walkie talkies there that got. Most likely have like little little shade during like little shade. And Maybe makeup is over there watching that they're. Seeing how their makeup job is the hair style is there over there that costume costumes. Throughout, their behind their behind the Monitor's watching, what does it look like on the screen? Because what it looks like I'm his Green Dad's. That's what the public is going to see. So. Maybe got the focus puller over there. You've got an editor onset editor. He's looking through their. Got The nudie all these. People Bank watching. Let's go. So, rob is back there. and Ad finally gets hip to the idea that he's got some. He's he's got. He's got some knowledge here. And So Robert Tells Kevin Smith. He's like you got about two hours before. The rains come in again. And then the ad explains to him what happened and he's like well. How do you know this stuff in Roberts's will? I studied you know for my. GROWING UP I studied to. The behavior of. Clouds whether I know about all that stuff. And In other words Robert, his knowledge supersedes whatever a Weatherman is going to tell you. These. People are looking at statistics. These people are looking at Odds these people are are. There's there's A. A different method. Let's say that. Versus someone who is used to. Having a language, actual language with this nets not say that there aren't some men out there. Who who really got their finger on the pulse of what's going on with the weather? So the rest of the day, he kept them right there by his side. Let them know what you know about. How much more time he had left the of daylight before. The next thing came along when that's going to happen. And so basically. Kevin. Smith commanded him. He goes. Oh, my Gosh! Like hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thanks to this. They had shutdown Roberts like it's GonNa rain all day tomorrow. You're going to have to shutdown. You said unless you shoot inside, so they listened to him. They call him back and they listen to thanked him for saving them all all this money, so it's amazing. It's amazing when. At your. Really. At Related Video Games. Here's how it relates. Because there's a program there are programs that are running all the time. So within video games, they are programmed to feel a certain way. They are programmed to say certain things are programmed to have certain behavior. All those little people in grand theft auto like I said earlier each of all those little, all those creatures. Have a life they have They have an intention going somewhere doing something. Why are they there? Someone's over here. Plan on this plane gambling over here at this table. Someone over there is driving a taxi some over. Here's riding a bike, so there is eating a sandwich. Person Sitting on a picnic bench, talking to another person. So. This person is drunk stumbling through the streets. And crashes into a garbage can. They got their little thing there. Little programs that are running. Non Player characters they call. delores cannon calls these the backdrop. People find him in our inner book. Convoluted Universe numbers. At the one I still gotta read the last one. Lawrence Cannon the backdrop people there in our lives. There's sort of the non player characters. They're there to sort of reflect our our highest. Intentions basically, as as is the rest of the world, it's a it's a personalized reality sequence that is tailor fit for you tailor fit for me. And our diagrams are just crossing paths here. Why will maybe there's something within the words that I'm saying that you resonate with third that you need to hear or something is reminder that will. Kick. Start something we go. That's right. That's right speaking. Kick Start. I got that motor I gotta fix on the Motorcycle Old Speaking of Kick Start I've got to kickstart that motor on my boat. It's been sitting in the pure all this time. I go go take a take it around for joyride. Take it out there and you know what I'm. GonNa do some writing to take out the pontoon boat to do some writing. It's been a while since I did some right. Just go out there you go. So there's a program running folks. There's a program. is a program that the interesting thing is figuring out how to program because neuro linguistic programming. We've talked about this before the the the book instant report. And sent report I'm going to get his actual name right now for an instant report instinct report. It's Brooks. Michael Brooks there. We Go God i. said his name Right the inland another podcast Michael Brooks. Instant report that just helps you get a just get along with someone. Right off the get. Go Bam right away. Right away right away tactics. It's using using things that we use subconsciously utilizing. Centers. Sensibilities that we do subconsciously. and. Harnessing it. In such a way that it works in our favor. In both of our favors really. It's it's no different than let's say after locate so for instance. Let's say chess or checkers, really good play, chess or checkers. And I. You know you don't know what you're doing, just doing this thing. And something's just Tony to move in this direction. Do that thing you know. Okay. Okay, it's this thing goes. And before you know it, there's some sort of foresight. There's some sort of like. There's a gracefulness there's. Like when you see someone just starting out playing guitar versus someone who's done it for years and their fingers just lying. Lyon they know the techniques they can now teach. You can go okay. This is something that I wish I knew when I was first starting guitar. Here's this cord years. That court hears this. These chords fit very well together. These courts fit very well together and this this cord fits both in this Chord Progression Inc. how cool is that? You know here commonalities here. Connections are to do gyp connect the dots. Dance what's going on here? Once you start connecting those dots so instant report helps connect the dots. So there are programs going on all over the place. So how do we program certain things I used to hate pickles. I reprogram myself and I'm insane I. I'm not saying I love pickles. But John I had we had A. Kind of she made the she heated up the sausages these vegan sausage. chretiens. And, she had a relish out there and I go. Yeah, what the heck I don't eat pickles. I don't relish. And I said I'm going to. Supersede the programming that I have typically head I'm going to hack into it. I'm the author of my tastes of my preferences. The things I'm naturally towards. And the things that I take chances on what makes me decide to take? Take a chance on what makes me decide to not take a chance of something. Is the thing that makes me decide to take a chance on something. You know a combination of. Let's say for instance. If my dad recommended a show, he's like. Oh, you! It's a good show, and then I'm breeding review with with. One of my favorite authors. He's guest Say to give them a guest review of a album or something. Or. Show you know show to go. I'd like to show these. That second recommendation third recommendation might be talking to a friend. WHO's a man this is there's just this great show. It's really got me thinking. Oh. Now, that's you know that's like sort of the word of mouth. It has to do with how you vouch for knit person. It's how you. Like! Let's say for instance I got. Those friends were deep in politics. If they're giving me suggestions on certain shows, I kinda. It's like based on the track. Record in the sensibilities that I've seen them choose in the past certain things. I see that they might be guided by the media they're guided by, but then who isn't indicated by the media in some fashion. There's a great quote that says we don't see the world. As it is, we see the world as us. We see the world, is you? So. It's always how it relates to us. If we if we related to the world as it was, it wouldn't necessarily be. Relating unless we were to. Agree to the idea that we are identity lists because if we are to truly relate to the world. As they say it is what is so? The world is what it is if it's got no meaning. No built in meaning just is what it is. It's what you're feeling is about it. I see this show I keep looking at this tree. That's popping up behind this building I. Keep Looking at it and with my is is I've been talking drawing like like like. A hand like it, it could be a glove. It could be mitten. It could be a one two three fingered. Hand. It could be the hand of A. Dragon upside down that could be. The. Arms of a star coming up popping up. Like. Three point things pointy ish kind of things. Those could be ears. Maybe that's the top of a Gremlin head. It's popping its head up over that building. It's a huge gremlins. So it's funny. The world is what you're. Basically allowing it to be. What you're giving it permission to be. Isn't it interesting? It's what we're giving it permission to be. So for if we're not giving ourselves permission. To. Be. And learn. And explore an adventure and go off the leash. Go sniffing around. Let your dog sniffer. What happens when you let your dog goes sniffing around? Out there. What if you had a camera on your dog? And you could see where he was going ahead. Your APP in, plus you had your little. You know homing system. That was that that'd be interesting. You know I mean. Yeah. They told not to walk dogs off off leash, but let's say if you're out in open area and you know there aren't any coyotes earlier bears, and you just want your dog just to go off leash and he just wants to follow. His nose follows heart. Let her follow her senses. Where's this? Where's this? Olfactory sense taking me. Where's it seem that's cool? What's that? Usually does this when he's hungry? So interesting, so we're relate into the world s see ourselves. Depending on how we talked to ourselves as how we're GONNA talk to other people. Like David Jansky around Cappella Times I'm frustrated with myself for not being able to you know, handle the math and all the crazy stuff that's involved and the I. Unfortunately that stuff I take it out on DVD chance ski, and he's the good guy and he handles it and then. I Apologize Profusely for it. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm sorry that's. was just. That was an aspect of me. Not Aspect of me that I wanted to show not an aspect of me that. It's interesting. which aspects of ourselves are we going to allow which reflections of ourselves we're going to allow. Out of the room full of mirrors. Which one's going to emerge from the room. FO- mirrors which one's going to emerge from the wardrobe. If you kind of look at it like that like a wardrobe. got this whole instead of a closet full of clothes you got this. Room full of mirrors and you go in there, and it's mirrors, and they're reflecting off each other crises. She got the one mirror. That's the short stout one that makes you aren't makes it. Look really wide and short. Then you've got the one that's. And it's like. It's a wiggly. Then you've got one that Zigzag Zigzag now imagine if all those reflecting off each other's zigzag, reflecting off the one that makes short looks short and stout now what? That reflects off and then you see that reflection within the mirror of the one that's. Red Kind of sues a wavy. Also now what? and. That was reflected in the mirror. That's. Or triangular. And concave. That reflects on convex. YIKES! Youngster mcpike stir. That's the game of telephone right there by the way. Shape shifting. The essence. A piece of it rings true 'cause there's a piece of it that is true. So it's interesting. Maybe throw these stories throughout time piece of the ship piece of the truth, because it still is within the Zeitgeist of that story. A piece of that is true. However. which piece of the actual true-life thing that really actually happened goes with it. which part of it? Is True the name of the person that happened to. On the! One the story that happened from this perspective to what happened from that perspective, the one that happened from this bird's eye view from the worms I view. When that happened through the bars of the crawlspace. Through the window at the feet. You know it's like. The one that was heard through the trunk of that car, the one that was. Seen through the GOPRO camera. That was In the. Rear View Mirror God. There's so many. Which one's the one? I guess that's why this is so important for us to make sure that we retain as much authenticity in the art world creating. So much of its truth is still intact. It's true. True True True True chewed sometime. I hear from people. Why didn't you do that? You did this wrong. Why didn't you do that? Why don't you go this way? Why don't you go that way instead? And you might find yourself going well. I can't answer. Why. I didn't do this. Why didn't do that? I can answer you. Y I did do what I did do. I followed my heart this. Was My seemed to be my instinct. I got so deep in the forest. Maybe I renamed it and I I misplaced the file or Maybe I accidentally. Race something or Central crazy thing. Everything truly is a to choose your own adventure, which parallel universe where we're GONNA go with which one feels best, which one which one wins out? In the gambling mind, the mind is gambling. One gambling that if I choose this then I avoid all those pratfalls well. What if it's not a gambling thing at all? What if I talk about this all the time and you're like Oh my God. What are you talk about this again? What if it's not a gambling thing at all? If if everything is what it is and it's how we're choosing to define something. If, it's not a gambling thing. What is it what's left? What do we replace with? Instinct. Why why instinct sing that well, that's what the Universe is based on. Universities based on institute plans are based on instinct. Cats are based on instinct. Yes, we can train them to do things. Then once they're out there. There's an instinct that kind of takes over. The Tigers go crazy. You tried to domesticate them, and then Bam instinct someone moves weird or does someone does something. Suddenly decides it's Hungary once that Ham Sandwich read now come. Teach your head off along with it. and. You raised that little cub. Raised reason a little baby. So. The universes instinct universes just what it is interesting. Moving towards Sun, drinking the water doing what I can with what it's got. got. It's interesting I. Don't know if some of the consciousness is it does the we'd actually tried to kill. The plant is extra or does it not even know the other plane exists? Or does, but it doesn't. It's not as mean as we might look at it. We go. Let's killing suffocating. Are they in an agreement? GotTa pull those weeds. To the interest, some sort of agreement that this is what's going to happen. Is that other plant hoping that humans going to rescue it from the we'd. Does the elk that's running from nineteen. Does it hope that someone or something is going to stop? Step in and save it? Does it hope. Does it know that it's it might die? Does it know why it's running? What thoughts are in its head? I hope it stops chasing me. How far away must be from this thing before I? Stop running. Is it when I see it. Stop when I see it. Stop Running I. Run another forty feet. Hundred feet I feel safe again. I'll go back to eating grass. Until I. SEE it out of the corner again and I'll start running again. Does it. No, is it? Is it going into what I want to live another day because of this? Because I wanted to spend more. Lazy Days Sleeping in this in the SUNBEAM's. Sleeping among the soft meadows, smelling those fish. Snap dragons. Letting my be friends took on my nose. Giving spots to mine. Bird friends to hang out on my antlers. I Wanna I wanNA live. Long by give at least fifteen more opportunities to birds. I WANNA give at least fifteen more. Opportunities out two birds the ability. And the invitation. Of landing on my antlers, hanging out having a deep discussion. To magin conversations that deers here. Of all the all the birds it land on their antlers, so imagine that those kinds of instincts. Do they all talk the same languages, can they? Owners stand each other. When, when an elephant swoop six years, and because we want a lot more, and it sends a message across the jungle, just like a whale labor and he goes well. An echoes underwater. The, cats that are out during the jungle, understand what that elephant is saying that secret code word or no, or is that part of the ability built within that? Elephant get their fight mechanisms. They got their flight mechanisms. This thing is eaten by this well, we're GONNA. Give it these mechanisms to defend itself. We're GONNA give a fighting chance. and. I think this is fair, you know yeah, the turtles slow, but at least giving it a very hard shell for its predators to try to eat through. Those predators Specific meet. As energy to survive in these specific ways, this turtle so this. The seagull. It. There's a specific vitamin or something with in the meat of the turtle that enables. Its wings to grow the way as strong and tough as it does. Now. This thing eats that bird. Because the combinations of that of of this turtle, it's it eats fish. That eats that combination of all. That together is what this animal needs. To survive in order for its teeth to grow sharper, it's so he interesting so. Instincts. Instincts what are the intuitions? What are the intentions where? In we we when we die, it's so interesting like with suffixes prefixes. Everybody Air Kleinberg tonight and we are. We are.

Impact Of Coronavirus On Deal Flow

"It's hard to believe but in reality our deal flow has increased due to the krona buyers. Hey there I'm eric in I'm heaven days. Join US our journey to building a one hundred million dollars company. What's up everybody? It's Eric J Olson. Once again we are in the middle of this. Colonel Virus epidemic has been going on for weeks and weeks and weeks and I was very very scared when it first happened the first day that it really dawned on me what was going on frankly. I was paralyzed and I was in a funk but by the second day I was starting to come out of it and by day number three we were on the offense and we decided that we were going to do several things. All Lot of those things were offensive in nature and a few of those things were defensive in nature the defensive. I'll go into. I very simply cutting out some of that. We run a lean operation here and there's not a lot of fat but there is still some fat and so we cut out a little bit of the fat. Some of the Perks. That were unnecessary. Frankly didn't amount to but I don't know a thousand two thousand dollars a month expenses not a big deal. But more importantly we went we went on offense and we doubled and tripled down on our marketing. Efforts in particular are social media. We are out in front of this and we are posting posting posting engaging posting. We are all over the place. If you fall US anywhere you will probably agree that were everywhere at all times. I like the concept of being omni-present so being a lot of places and frankly being there what and that has led to attention and that attention has led to deals so even though some of our clients have cutback other small clients have dropped out. We're getting deal flow like I would never expect to get in about a three week period. We signed four new clients and those four new clients announced to about fifteen thousand dollars a month in new monthly recurring revenue. That is actually higher than the goal that we set for the quarter as far as the pace goes. I mean it's a much higher pace than even we expect during normal times so we are exceeding our normal pace right now. Which was to me is crazy like it's amazing. I mean I don't think it's crazy that people are signing up. I'm definitely not saying it's smart. That people are doing this. But it's also aggressive right so even though. I say you should do this. You should get your marketing to and you should do more and more and more like I get it. It's scary but people are doing it. And certain businesses are thriving right now and that's really I think the big takeaway here. A lot of people are worried because their niche has disappeared or a lot of their clients have disappeared. But there's a lot of work out there. There's more work than we can handle. Not just me but other agencies to but if you're unwilling to go after that work you're not going to get it. We are willing to go after that work. So we have refocused slightly on the kinds of clients that are booming right now and there are industries. Trust me that are booming. There's also unfortunately a lot of industries that are bombing so some of our clients not doing so great other clients are crushing it and some of our prospects that are coming to us are absolutely crushing. It so that's where our focus is and we've lost a little. We'VE MAINTAINED A TON. We're in good shape and we've also signed a lot of new deals is frankly very very encouraging so. I hope everybody is doing well out there. Stay safe keep grinding away and the work will come to you sir. Thank you for listening if you're in need of Seo or other digital marketing services visit US online at this is the ray dot com.

Getting Perspective

"This is the no ego podcasts where we did the drama and entitlement and transform your World Place Wakeman. Welcome to another episode of the no ego podcast for those of you watching this video. You're going to see a makeshift Kinda said here. I am self recording with my own iphone ends and Kester in order to create podcasts for you. We're not putting recorded. Cast OUT. Because we want to be really on target with what some of you might be experiencing as we're going through a covert nineteen being transmitted throat. Many many countries. I'm in Mexico. I came down early March just for few days and then it quickly became evident that traveling back through customs at the time that people weren't as prepared and in distant saying didn't seem like the brightest idea so I stayed and we continue to monitor the situation to figure out when it's best to Travel back to the US. So in the meantime I am here and Mexico. Solit- you're seeing my makeshift studio and Doing just a Lotta creating leading team from far. We're doing so many of our Keynotes and trainings and our work they normally with doing percents virtually and I think people are realizing a lot of advantages. I know there's a lot of challenges that a lot of advantages to be able to get a lot of work done using zoom or some of our other tools doing it virtually but to We've switched the topic of no Eagle. Podcast away from season three. What we were doing is taking letters from or emails another kind of old fashioned Kamar cans and answering knows with myself or with Alex who's our VP of people or inviting guests on to help. Answer those questions from variety of perspectives of people. That I respect. We saw so much disrupted. I decided one of the things I do. Try to be upheld by coming to you. Directly on the topic of Kobe ends of the Krona virus ends the way in which were either Have stayed home orders or working from home or were essential and were out on the front lines or for so many of you. You're not working right now from home and If you're listening to a podcast I'm proud of you because you need to continue your growth development and I'll do my best to bring new on topics or information that just helps you move through this new reality skillfully peacefully must a even dare say Kathleen without extra inside the extra drama extra fear. Feeling what you're feeling in the moment but not having to that to point where you're suffering from it so I am excited. We've been getting some great questions. I'm going to answer those questions after I give you a few tips. Some of You. Who SEE ME ON VIDEO? A notice my skin's get pretty Derek. Yes I were. Sent screen might chick-fil-a red pills. I just came in from a really great walk To get some exercise. But that's just what happens with sunscreen so daily Fresh air and I turn marvelous ten colors so you're seeing me If we were out to know while we were on thirty days survivor episode. This is what Silat look like with her hair and her Tan. So good to be with all of you just want to acknowledge that we are all going to something together which is amazing for us to find commonality in had combat experience. Many of us lives are disrupted Times but we are in a position where we have common experience of being part of transforming times in. That's a cool thing and I hope that we're all using it to just take up full membership as human beings in the race with all that comes with a vulnerability trying things for the first time. Making MISTAKES HAVING STRESS BEHAVIORS. Heavy to learn to apologize to make amends. So if you really lean into. This is pretty incredible as humans. Were having a common experience at the same time and I want to acknowledge that even though we're kind of in the same storm when I'm necessarily in the same boat and data acknowledgement comes. It's an incredible common experience that the world is just kind of stopped. The universe put us all in some peculiar time outs or time right on the Crisis and that has some cool things going forward. Lean into that but I also want us to lean into her inviting you to lean into facts that even though we're all going through this to gather depending on our situation in life were not necessarily going through this with the same experience depending on what we head for emotional reserve on Angela reserves depending on the healthcare that we've received Not only for us to date but for generations back it really depends on their social economic status where we live here in Mexico. For instance you know everyone is saying. Wash your hands. Wash your hands. One of the key. Defenses to keep yourself safe from Krona's wash your hands in here. That is tone deaf because in our area. I'm told about fifty percents of the people who live here. Don't have running water or running clean water and so even just helping. Think about advice like that. That is a main defense against the virus can be very toned up if you're not in tune to the day-to-day living activities of the people that you are walking side by side with so I'm saying that only because I would like for you to be a lot less judgmental a lot more helpful stay curious. Don't jump into knowing and China to use your intellect to know what to do and get through this on open minded open hearted soft hearted just willing to seeping from any perspective. So I WANNA start with a bit of a offering a strategy or technique. Try and give you those as we get into the podcast and I'm also giving you those. Facebook live if you haven't been joining. Us side Wakeman. Facebook live page. The business page. We put up there. How often we're going live next week will be live. I believe it's Thursday at twelve central and we would love to. Have you join us if you don't get to join us? Listen to the recordings record him. Put Him on the facebook page. And I'M GONNA check it even easier where we condense. Ann CHOP UP KEY MESSAGES. To make it really consumable in. Put it out to you in short clips so please. The following us on facebook. Instagram linked in twitter all of us at Sei Wakeman or reality base layer ship on RB leaders. It's all out there. We're just trying to build a reservoir reservoirs. The right word A library against for all of you to use with your teams and then trying to take it from many different angles. So one doesn't resonate or apply may be another would so in the past. I've been talking a lot about when you're hit with the anxiety Fearful in a lot of times. It's just generalized anxiety. You're hit with you. Don't really know where it's coming from. A technical a lot about is notice health far out. You are if your way into the future. If you're wearing about every human being or every dog on the planet or you're worrying at bell it's You know money for the next twenty years or your eventual retirement. If you're feeling anxious know how far out you've gotten doing a call come close in and come as close as you need to reassure yourself that in the now. I have everything I need for the next ten minutes. I know what I need to do. I had the support I need. Currently we have the food we need or right now. I know who to call for help. That's the way to soothe yourself now. Another technique which is the exact opposite of it is a technique to use. If you find yourself just waiting in hope or hopefulness if you start to feel a down or you're you're low on gratitude or you just start to wonder like our Wiegand. Make it Like can we ever recover? If you start to feel your hope Paul Messier faith on in humanity and the world lane a technique rather than getting close in is to get distance from whatever is. That's on your mind and put it in perspective in so backing back out that on what I'm experiencing today in ten years. Will it be as critical as that making it today? Or Given. What other people are experiencing not? But we're gonNA compare suffering but just adding perspective given what other people are experiencing can see where I do have some places where I were equipped or more fortunate. Nuts distance gives us good perspective. So sometimes if you're having difficulties relationship we ask you to take a break from one another because of break from each other and having some distance you're agreeing not to talk about something for a week or whatever it is gets you time to gain a different perspective of one of my favorite poets. David white talks about a good walk around the lake. Drinks out the truth in almost every situation and learning how to when we're really locked and loaded and we're really attached and things seem missing critical and this is the one thing that's going to ruin everything in. This is the the most important moment. Founding away distance from that is important and some other ways to gain perspective and distance include your reflection in life. Think bad on a point in your past where you felt like this is the worst thing that could ever happen or this is they. You know this is what ruins my career or this look bad and look at those moments where you really had some lows. You had some bad loans and do two things notice that you got through those just fine and reap the lessons that did you get through by reaching out for help or did you wait too long. It would have been easier if you have reached out for help but look at those rock bottles in what you might be surprised to find is what you thought was the worst thing ever happening in. Your life actually was turning point. And now you'RE SLATER. You could say it was one of the best things that ever happened in your life. I remember so I was out on somebody else's workshop. They're doing just a spectacular job and they were getting us the ingredients to write a life's purpose or mission statement and in doing that. They're asking us all kinds of self reflective questions and one of the questions was in a bad exact question. Look back over time your life that you saw was really you thought was really negative and you just GonNa everything you had hoped for. You really thought it was taking something big from you and you're losing a lot and they hemicycle standard than they have us. Come back to those key moments in our lives and say can you see where these might have been the most wonderful turning point. Are there any of these? You can reframing not all of them are restrained all right not all of them are but some of them really are if you can back and go. You know what was in that moment. I saw it in a very narrow perspective as completely negative and as I look back I can see where it was pretty positive now. I'm not asking if you have lost patience or loved ones or if you yourself against sick or if you've lost were I'm not asking you to put a positive spin on this. Not asking you to be grateful for the pandemic. I am asking you to move to the world's with gratitude in every moment so I can't be grateful. Bad things are happening to people made. I kept telling my gratitude right now and put things in perspective that for what is happening but I can be grateful in every moment as it's happening and I hope you take that in really kind of play with that in another great way to get perspective folks if you're reading more during this pantothenic look for biographies of I mean real good biographies of people that were in challenging times and worked their way through it. I find just incredible perspective as I. Read some autobiography play. One will stain US auto biography. But it's definitely a book. He wrote about his experiences. Viktor Frankl's you know a book on Meaning in your life in so it's really finding ways to put things in perspective. Health or mental flexibility helps us not define and label. Something is good or bad or the end of the beginning and really helps us. Just find some perspective if nothing else Rome some place for hope can creep in were gratitude can creep in and we can say you know what I can at least believe given my past experience that things can be okay and my mom used to say to me all the time when I was thinking that not making all state in high school was the end of my life. She's used to say things like it's all okay in the end it's not the end. It will all be good in the end or the end and just really loved that a mindset someone to share that with you before. I took a few questions. The first question I have of course gets near and dear to my heart is from a nurse manager named Maria in Bend Oregon and she says she works on the inpatient unit at a hospital and I'm hoping Mississippi relevant I know Oregon and by the time we got through all these questions I know. Oregon is through some of their challenges but definitely not all but she's a nurse manager that works inpatient unit. She's a first year manager and she says as you can imagine there's so much emotion for our frontline caregivers right now. There's fear and anxiety and stress in each moment of days as we plan for the future yet tried to be intentional in our care today. How can I as a leader of caregivers who can't socially distance yet provide? Some of the most important care provide good communication while helping people focus on what our goals are and had achieved Hopefully you're putting yourself in this person's place we've got amazing care to do and we gotta stay focused. We gotTA keep prepping for how we do better tomorrow and she goes on to say we come to work with our families and loved ones heading on our minds while we worry about protecting ourselves in those care. How can I be a brave leader in the face of a threat is heavy on all of our mines while helping each person reports may be confident and feel safe? I feel Failing in these areas and would love some guidance. Now's the time to stand. Besides those I lead let them know I care but also provides strong guidance in giving the best care to our most vulnerable population. Thank you and then she goes on to say that they use a lot of our stuff in their organization. Okay when your circumstances are dire kind of hear overwhelm what is it. Good technique to do and we actually learn this whether we're therapists our nurses or physicians we learn as we may not call it this but we learned to compartmentalize in what I mean by compartmentalize. Is You really have to be willing to put anything other than what you need to focus on in this moment? In this moment you need to ignore things in rotation of the stones perhaps not authentic or not experiencing the whole experience. But when you're called to take a position where we need to be safe. We need to deliver good chair and We need to be at the top of our game while we're still human and we have our families that maybe we feel like we're getting your needs met and it is so unpredictable in our work. The main thing that I would say is you need to help people compartmentalize and before you can do that. You need to ask soft questions. While you can't have everything lined up at everything organiz and everybody feels safe and what you gave yourself to do as leader. Maria is way too big. And you feel like you're failing because your expectations are big. Get to reality. Feel of your people. Yes do you care about the yes so you might not be protecting them or showing mom or making every moment meaningful or leading them or giving them great perfect communication in times like this although. You're striving to do that now. That the situation this big issue majoring. Did I do it on as I hope you will always come up? Family slid drop it. Just get back to the basics. I know I care about these people. I'm mindful of communicating. I WANNA keep people safe. How do I be brave? Guess what you already are. Braid is a choice that you move forward when you're feeling vulnerable when you feeling will scare em bravery isn't something that's in you is just virtue cultivate by breathing again and knowing done perfectly and staying in and rising up and doing the best we can so you are ready brave. I would recommend. How do you do this? So we need people that are compartmentalizing their work. Now here's what I mean by that four right now. We have three patients that need our attention. Compartmentalizing is I take my family and I put it on the shelf. I take my kids and I put him on a shelf and I take my parents and I put him on this shelf. I because I can't be there right now anyway. My worry doesn't do any good and Zaps my energy away from what I can impact so anything that is in front of you is your focus your attention in you need to say a bit in anticipation and planning ahead of the work. You're doing right now. Anything that is not in front of you to the impacted will take away from you unless you can do this compartmentalizing and it up with all the love in your heart and put it on the shelf and says a leader. You gotta get a test before close saying you gotTa say here's what we know for now. Here's what we don't know. Here's what we need what we need to commit ourselves to. Here's our main focus right now. Do these three things. And not micromanaging managing energy away from. Oh my Gosh I have family and parents in grocery away from all of that too. We can impact in really do wonderful things in this fear. So we're managing energy to. Here's what we know is what we don't know here's what we need to focus on and being fully present a moment giving all of it to the moment without trying to go out and jump out doesn't always things that are just hitting your minds and their things. You can't do anything about right now. What this means. Is that when you go from? What's in front of you to your next work is that you're going to need to make a good transition. And here's what transitions needs to be. You need to debrief in whatever form as far as like. Oh my gosh. You know. Whatever that was sad. That was hard. That was scary. Whatever it could just be. You know this bombs that could just be in sign language. It could just be direct I contact in the debris and then be willing to transition center yourself again to now. Focus on this part of the world's the people that we study that were resilient attacked us about when the going tough bay were able to focus on what they could change and not forget about but intentionally put on the shelf. Zip wraps up in a boat of love. What they couldn't and some of them said we gave it to guide or some of them said. I just had to trust the people. I left at home that they're you know. This is their time to shine. I just had to really learn what to let the love. Otherwise it's lose lose. You can't give anything proper attention to make impact so it's Compartmentalized do your work. Debrief intentionally transition compartmentalize go back in and saw want people to start thinking about. What am I picking up? And what am I putting on the shelf so my view is a crowded so I'm not juggling so many things I'm GonNa drop something. And it's really important. That ben in those debating that transition that even if it's just a minute whatever's allowable in your environment to for a minute walk around the block or for a minute just in no touch. Somebody's shoulders if it's appropriate or in l. In their case nicely. Make eye contact or you know hurt symbols. Whatever however pe e e earlier up on P. E. UP? You are making sure that. We can't debrief for hours. But we can debrief with tender hearts even if it's energetically where we just you know one. Two three. Everybody breathe three times released. What just happened for now? I really believe that people like myself are GonNa be on needed to be out loving op. All the frontline people in caregivers that have been through so much in their areas but talk to people about putting things on the shelf in doing it. What love wrapping 'em in a bubble whatever mentally. You need to do and put everything away. It can't impact right now. Visually and focus on what you can impact Mima transitions. Do the debrief get breathing again. Focused on the next thing. Go back in a minute. Here's what's really important is as a leader a lot of times. You're trying to make those moments meaningful. You can't do a ton of communication on in the moment but call timeouts time out. Here's why need everybody to know I'm telling you make it tribal pass it onto everybody. You see so the next you know. Ten interactions make sure everybody you see knows. The snoopys of information really get creative get repetitive gets simple about what we need to communicate but make sure that your timeouts your regrouping people. Don't underestimate what one minute of. Hey everybody heads up? Let's Let's regroup. Let's make sure we know who's not here who's GonNa take responsibility to let them know as leader. You'll feel like you have to touch everybody. Everybody no you can't do that right now. Effectively you need your boss. But you need to get very directive. So it'd be like Lin so you're clear on how do you now? What the new protocol is yes so make sure signing you that. Your care team. Everybody is seeing that room today. Can you commit to me that you are able to be responsible for passing this on Get very specific whether it's whiteboards or email communication centers. You have all these tools. Nurses just start really using them. And I'm really be willing to take time out. And in that. Debriefing be okay with feeling things deeply letting it happen and You know taking those minutes in then regrouping refocusing end. Get deeply focused. And so what you're doing is you're going along like a carousel. You're like I'm going to move over here. Pick that one. I'M GONNA go deep put the I'm going to bring it back up put back. I'm going to switch over go deep with feeling part. I'M GONNA come back up. I'm ready to grab that. On going. To go back down. And it is such a natural for many people in caregiving to ignore things in rotation this necessary right now so I guess thoughts I would give to. You is on my best advice on either council and celebrate successes so as people are leaving the worst thing you can do is let people feel that. They didn't debrief they didn't get any moment of connection that they are leaving with a lot of results feelings. Because that's where the really alone hopelessness hits. You on your Commute Home. And you're entering in your head responsibilities. They can't understand what you've gone through it just throughout the next six hours to just get more and more alone. You spiral down. This debriefing is so important in celebrating. So the next question Anita from Grand Island's says that Shave right now over the last four weeks while people on have been pretty challenged. She said that her director is Demanding micromanaging and that she's gone. He's gone even deeper to the point of toy me exactly what I will do each day. I'm at the main level That for some time I know how to do my job. Yesterday was the worst. She told him Ian another department that we could not doing easy tasks to help them out. We're all trying to help out right now because we're too busy but we have time another person commit department came down with the project. I accepted it. Not knowing that had this discussion we look like idiots. Plus this is especially on a time should be helping each other couple of issues. She's communicating for my department. Keeping me blue night and let me make a small decision. Basically set my corporate our that wains go into work which I always wanted to go into work. I'm paraphrasing here on the person's polite. They don't raise their voice they but they aren't letting us thank decisions and They're being over directive micromanaging. So you guys will be tired of this. But here's where you need to start first with this. Take your story out of it. Just the fact that they're micromanaging and demanding and I feel like an idiot. We look like idiots. We should be helping each other and this story has grown to the point where you're sitting in the car not wanting to go to work. If I were just to help you loosen the eagles script on this story. We can potentially find a place where you could just go. Oh this person's stress behavior. They tend towards someone who out lights or tends to be directed by on light to my experience them as they're more directive. They're stressed the savior is that they Start to recall over function and when people are in fear they over function. And so this person your boss that you don't even WanNa face and you're feeling like they're making you feel like an idiot. That's not none of that's happening. They're scared and they're over functioning in somewhere in here. It's protective behavior trying to protect you. Which is hard to see the kind of sin that they're trying to protect on them and others in so one of the things I want you to try on all of you. Who are judging people whether they are socially saying or whether they're hypocrites or whether they're you know whatever they are now that you're all living in close quarters. What if we just can't generous with our titling? Quick labeling things like micromanager and just said over functioning or operating outside of what? I WOULD CONSIDER THEIR LANE. What if you just worked on neutralizing your language and having a generous heart and a generous view in agendas mind? What if we overemphasize benefit of the doubt not to other people off the hook? What if we applied some grace and mercy so that we didn't harm ourselves like the fact that we're sitting in a car for an hour not even liking our job in normally. I love it but if we went there this is just your stress behavior and you ask me for research like is there a podcasters there. An article accurate. And I will tell you that. Some of the best work on helping people understand over functioning or under functioning. Because what happens. A Lotta Times is when someone over functions? The person that they're wet Under function and the Warm Day save forget do-it-yourself the more the person panics in the more they take over Wound the wounds could hurt. Parts of US was perfectly together. Brittany Brown started new podcasts. Of course it's amazing. 'cause it's Friday and I'm such a fan all social workers who come up with the ability to translate this to work in situations. She has a podcast. That just came out on over functioning and I would suggest you all race over subscribed to as podcasts. Eigen loving it on the beach and This is all just about over functioning and really your stress behavior might be seeing insult where there isn't any. If you go back to reach your questions so much personalizing I wanna do a good job. You know and and I'm not able to because of what's going on if you start from a place of Generosity MERCY GRACE. You might not be able to change her behavior but one of the things we can do in a non judgmental way is just Name what's going on which is fear and thank people for what they're attempting to do even if it smell intentions right now. A great way to stop that your cycle is just to say you know if remains Joan just to say on Joan. Can we have a second? I am myself fearful and wanted to do the job. I know you're concerned. And it seems like we're all getting into some fear here and we might all be in over on functioning. I know I'm tempted to take it. Am I know that might be your temptation to in? It's not working right now. Can we just acknowledge that? We're all fear base right now and can we take brought than is there a way we can be helpful while still protecting our boundaries. If you can step up not moment. It doesn't matter what you have control over to manage what your position is or if she truly pulls a power play nets nevertheless. Who did that again? You're upset about a space. You might not be able to have your whole domain about but there's another space that's called leadership that you could step into which is even if it's our boss anytime we can name. That were scared right now. And when we're scared we probably don't move forward intentionally consciously titled up anytime we can name it. I'm not saying Look Joan. You're over functioning. I am saying any time we can just name it that we're all in some fear based and potentially Overreacting I know I'm let me name it. I'm in fear. I'm overreacting highly sensitive when people comment need our help it. I think we can do it. And you have a different opinion so I must step the overreacting and I'll start. What could I do to be more helpful in the summit instant? What could we do together to make sure that we are giving what we can without jeopardizing the goal? This is another place for and I would say to my boss. What's your goal right now. While I don't want to overcommit US okay. My goal is held on as much as possible so it seems like we might think they're competing. What if you? I just took ten minutes in the hallway in figured out how we can help us much as possible in the end. Make sure that we're over committing but tell me more about what some of your fears are. Tell me more about what that would look like. Tell me more about what you see. The danger of that the thing in just find a way that you're more alike than different. She over functions and speak on your behalf and protects you and your mind over functions proving stories about her in trying to get back to work. You think is yours and see your both over hunting away. That is hitting a lot of conflicts where I want you not to over function but to function is just naming the fear and seeing if you can't just pause acknowledged feelings going on in an invite people by your example to stop out that space pause. Choose to move forward different way. Just play with other Nita I love it. I love your heart here. You WanNa work you want to help you. WanNa do more than your fair share but your ego to stay alive whenever you telling yourself. Getting righteous anger is righteous. It's ego just feel the feeling whenever you're sitting in your car for an hour not wanting to go to work. It's ego and one of the things are ego does because we're corrupted it takes. A happening am personalizes. It IS EAGLES. See insult where there isn't any it adds the meaning she said no and didn't ask me and that means that she thinks. I'm incapable and she treats me like a child and she is a control freak. It doesn't mean anything. It means that on the fly she aired on the side of saying. That's not something we can get right. Now it's just over function behavior. You guys if you seen people's behavior is insult to snow. It's your ego and choose a different path for yourself is silent about the other person. Choose to give people benefit of the doubt. Co Create. Something very different together. If you're in a tug of war put down your ends of the rope. Come to people with open mind open heart you all have the same. We all have the same goal. Lots get us through this tending to the people. We can't even if heaven forbid it's as they pass from vice like let's do all the good weekend with all the the efforts that we have so I love your heart. Neither don't see insult where there isn't any one more corey from carbondale on society at Bene- volunteer or a have a volunteer. Who Twenty years ago was the leader a leader in this organization? I've totally screwed this up. Let me start over Corey from Carbondale Illinois writes. I have a volunteer. Who over twenty years ago was a lethal orgnization? I'm not the leader. He called me the other day verbally. Attacking me on my leadership through this time my presence experience demanding to know what I was doing. What are your best hits for defusing anger besides just hanging up the phone? Thank you now in these moments. Make a caveat if you are getting verbally abused because I mean what because in these times. Some of us are homes or workplaces. Rent that safe to begin with and now were much closer quarters but higher strauss if if that's happening to you the instance of domestic violence the calls hotline like it's escalating. So I don't want you to take any of my advice in applied to scarcely bypass or to somehow justify or out of something that You don't deserve and is putting you in danger. I want you to As you can reach out for help so in this situation I don't want some of you that are are over functions to go while I'll just see it generously this situation. I'm going to invite you court to do something a little bit different in. It's counter intuitive. One of my favorite quotes. I thought it came from other theresa but I can't find that it did. It might have come. From course. Miracles attributed to basically said that there's two types of acts or deeds two things behind the way I'm behaving. They're either acts of love. Which though still loving rates went some of these acting out of love or this cries for love so when somebody's misbehaving what's underneath that like loved a cry from the only appropriate response is a loving one. The only thing that is going to raise the frequency of the situation is that somebody with calmer mind toggle ob can respond with love and it nothing else. Just allow us to end with the possibility of neutral right can just offset. Some of this can apply love to it and so actually you might not perfect. I don't think I would if I was taken off guard but on when people are sharing with you and you're moving into the senior. I can't believe you're calling me up. You haven't been elated for twenty years. You're you're talking about my executive presence. We've been here eighteen hours. I got called in yesterday. Slept with her this star with Joss. Thank you it's weird to try people come in and they go sign Alan. You know that outfit is not your best outfit. I call my gosh. Thank you for for your care concern. I love that you're willing to be honest with me and that you want me to look my best yell at home for the holidays one time and I had a relative there basically like telling me they're like so it doesn't look like Even dieting this year looks like you put on weight and I was able to diffuse it by just saying I love that. You're concerned about my health. I really appreciate all these tips. You give me and they're like well you don't even apply I am. I'm like you know I've noticed about myself too lightly that I'm not always applying the things I now. What other tips do you have like? You seem to really be able to apply that whether some of your best tits and it was able to trance new transform. The energy. That's with alchemist. Jews they take the energy of the moment and they can use that energy to transmute it into something Better for all of us and wedding gift in so I thought you know you could say gosh. Thank you for calling it. Thank you for your concerns. You've pointed out some areas on the. I'm certainly glad to keep in mind teams if you can do that. Without ANY CYNICISM. You can actually just receive feedback the feedback. I appreciate that absolutely willing to consider it. I know there are some things that I am not paying as much attention to and that's certainly could be helpful and I appreciate that you can set boundaries. I have been able to give you the last ten minutes or so. I M doing another meeting in so I appreciate this. If there's something else you think of sending an email that would be great. Don't get eagle hooked into this just transmuted into of course they're giving you feedback has some of truth in that you. Any one of us can have better executive presence. Any one of us can lead better to these times. Don't get ego hooked on it and just now and be comfortable with. I could do better on a lot of things that right now. This is what I'm choosing and given those choices for myself. I'm choosing to put focus here. Not Focus their welcome to leadership in a might say something like the last one like into sound concerned or scared. Besides my growth are my things some things I could do differently. What are you most concerned with? As far as you know what we're doing for our clients or our patients or the community Agree with them to say you know me too. I share that concern when people are coming at you as the enemy. If you can co OPS Tom and agree and thank them for their feedback. And then try and find something that you both are concerned about a place that you come together without being dishonest or without giving up your authenticity. It's just the techniques to try and just see if you can't see through the behavior one of the things that in stressful times could really help us help each other is. Don't confuse the behavior with the need. Every behavior has a need underneath it or behind entering stressful times. We think we're helping but most of the time are actually hurting. We try and control or we try and take over. Our goal is to help. That's our need. We WanNA help that. Perhaps experience you have from us is. It's hurting when your ego is running the show confrontations like pension the ego in the face. You need a good bypass the best land tents like this to help people bypass when they're scared it sighing. The emotional brain is it kind of sits on top of the thinking brain ins just like if you have tests phobia if the emotional brain isn't connected isn't like on top of or connected into the deeper part of the brain. You can't get Americans to learner problem solve the way I explained it to kids. It's like if your emotional. That emotional rains out here. Wigging out and you've got to reconnect those before you can connect into the minds or heart of somebody in so in these times. See through the behavior to the need. See what may be. The Driving Force is NC. If you can't provide a gentle safe place for a moment you know you sound concerned and I know I'm concerned and it's really weighing heavy on me. I wanted to a good job. So you've given me some things to think about growth perspective. What are you concerned about? When it comes to delivery or the outcome serve Kennedy end result. What's your biggest concern? I appreciate that. Thank you for sharing that in a lot of times. People just seem to be heard may need to know that you're open to considering what they're saying. This doesn't commit you to change anything or take the feedback to do anything with it. If people are presenting something it's a gift you just see the safe. Thank you and you can unpack that later in. Continue TO GO ON A. You don't have to do this abandoning yourself. You can just do this knowing that there's truth in every single thing that comes your way really mean out on something you heard me talk about deduct before but I just want to remind you that anything anyone says to you. If you're beyond ego you can find truth in it. There's just nothing anybody can give you for feedback. That's not truthful. In some way and the sooner you are willing to lock in and just step into the truth about the less you will suffer so semi can come out tink. You're a liar and it's like I don't think I'm a liar but if I look there's so many ways ally like are how you doin' site. Great let me refrain. That actually Kinda scared like I like every day when I go into a federal building. 'cause they look at your driver's license and I say my driver's license I weigh a hundred and sixty five pounds it. It's a felony. I think to lie to a Federal Security Officer in is some of these. Send Me Your Aligarh. Take a super insole. That could be reactive. Go You have electric twenty years. I can find that I can totally find that yes. There are two examples for how that's true if you are seeking ways to find how it's true and seeking ways to connect and seeking ways to transmute comes to as Fans into just knowledge from of your own humanness in connection bath to whoever's coming to and it did give them what they need let that they are gift right now. Like let's not Take Jairo 'cause we're better people less find opportunity when you don't have the reserve? I can come back with something. That's the better of us so that when I don't have the reserve hopefully you can come back or something is for the better of us and it is a way to find shifts in perspective. And that's where the miracles are folks. the questionnaire calls talks about Amir simply a shifting perspective finding some space where you can move through the world differently in each one is questions whether you're caregiving on a floor on an intensive care unit find space for people to know their loved. Debrief transitioned focus in. If you are feeling like you're micromanaged by your leader find. Stay simple From the Ross. The American just see that. Perhaps they're just instructs face behaviors. Somebody is pulling me. I'm senior to you. I'm calling you often telling you how to do your job. Find space to be able to return to down gratitude and acknowledgment that They're concerned in that. They loved the organization that they're volunteering them. There right now Ryan. Now isn't the best time for major boundary setting and big feedback. And right now I think for many of the situations you're giving me. The time is in the moment. Let's apply grace mercy tolerance. Let's take the insult out. What's just really respond with loving one chance meeting this energy? And if something is a pattern or if something is A chronic situation. Then we'll strategize on how you can ask for what you need and potentially put some boundaries out there but in these times right now. This is for many of you whether you're out working as essential in coming home or whether your home wok with grace and mercy tolerance benefit of the doubt. It is really like this lubricant. We can give the human race right now. Because it's so tempting for me to feel better by offloading my fear on the you in the form of anger and most the time anger is a cover for fear ends multiple times. Fear is what we experience when we forget who we are and we are to one another and what we're capable of as a human race so I wish you well have a Wonderful Week. Be Safe Be. Well ask for help when you need it if you are asked for help even if it's really messy and it's just crazy feed-back gift help anyway and I hope in the next couple of weeks you won't have to answer so many pandemic questions that I'm here prisoners takes Just really loving you guys up and take good care of the humans around you.

"Hello. And welcome to misinformation, a trivia podcast for ladies and gents who love cool trivia, sticking it to anoint teams pub quiz, where your host, I'm Lauren and I'm Julia jewel. Hi, laurin. Hey, are you excited about mythology may coming to a close? Well, we've learned so much over the Lastly, I am a lot yet to learn thank are you going to really lay it on us today is today is a is a long episodes. So I hope you're on a great road trim. Yeah. That'll land. You got a lotta like menial tasks at work that you need somebody's voice to two company. You data entry data's Trie data entry with podcasts. That's this dream. Yes. So this is this is this is our last episode this month of mythology may today. Finally, we've been alluding to it all month. Oh boy today is men are from Aries women are from Elfrid ICTY Greek and Roman mythology. Finally, the thing we both of us have been referencing. I know. Right. Like, well, you know, we'll save the longest for last show. Yeah. And like you know, it's like a reveal you know you're like I don't understand this Hermes in. Why do they keep saying this? And then finally, like Tata we're going to give you all the answer. Yeah. And this is something that people might be most familiar with. I say out of the ones that we've covered. So, yeah. You know, there's, there's a lot here and it does come up a lot in trivia, so kind of a background Greek. Mythology is known today, primarily from Greek literature and representations in visual media, dating from about nine hundred BC to eight hundred BC onward the existence of both literary and archaeological. Sources of data is a strong indication that many elements of Greek mythology have strong, factual and historical roots. Both the ancient Greeks and Romans were descended from the proto Indo Europeans though, the two groups diverge, they continued to share remnants of a common language and other features including mythology from the earliest period of the Republic Roman malicious beliefs had adopted Greek elements. So this actually predated the Roman con. Greece, which is actually one of the common explanations, about the similarity of their histories when the Romans made Greece starting in one forty six BC. They're gods were not as developed or sophisticated as the Greeks were, and the Romans knew that bridging the differences would add their influence over their conquered nation. So captured Greek scholars were used to tutor Roman children, because they knew that the Greeks had an excellent educational system, comparatively to there's interest so Greek literature was also superior at the time. So the Romans adopted much for their own stories. So the intermixing of the literature result in cross pollination of all the Greek gods and deities with their own. Oh, which is why so many that are like, oh well in Greece. Get all g. It's this and in the Roman holiday. It's this. It's kinda like France, France and England when it comes to fashion. There you go. The French trust and flows. And so the English were like, well, I gotta get a robot FRANZ sites. That's the name of the dress. And then there was a robot England's so that was like less. Okay. Yes, there you go. Exactly. Like I don't even have to do they have done. Thanks for listening, guys. The only general mythological hin book to survive from Rican witty with the book by pseudo Polidori called library from around one hundred eighty BC to about one twenty five VC. This provides a grand summary of traditional Greek mythology in heroic legends, but among the earliest literary, sources are homers to epic poems, the Iliad and the odyssey. Oh yes, we're written in the late eighth early early. Seventh century BC, a possible contemporary of Homer, named Hess Yod offered in his theology or the origin of the gods. The fullest account of the earliest Greek myths dealing with the creation of the world, the origin the gods titans and giants plus elaborate genealogies folktales in historical myths, Hessy odds works in days. Oppose about farming life, also includes the miss of permit ius Pandora and the five ages playwrights, including h lis- Sophocles and Euripides took most of their plots from its of the age in heroes of the Trojan war, historians like Herodotus, geographers personas and stray. Bo. Oh, traveled throughout the Greek world, and noted the stories that they heard, and also supplied numerous local myths, and legends often giving little known alternative versions, and then there were some Roman poet, who lived around the first century BC guys, like Ovid, who wrote the metamorphosis, also Seneca, and Virgil, who wrote the aeneid they also incorporate Greek and Roman mythology into their stories. Because Latin literature was more widely known in Europe throughout the middle ages, and into the renaissance the interpretations of Greek myths by the Romans often had a greater influence on narrative, and pictorial representations of classical mythology than Greek sources. So with the rediscovery of classical antiquity during the renaissance the poetry of Ovid became a major influence on the imagination of poets dramas musicians and artists from the earlier renaissance artists like so of our favorite ninja turtles Leonardo Michelangelo and refugee portrayed. The pagan subjects of Greek mythology alongside more conventional Christian themes and through the medium of Latin, and the works of Ovid Greek myth influenced medieval and renaissance boats such as patriarch, because she oh, and Dante in Italy in northern Europe, Greek mythology didn't quite take the same, hold of the visual arts. But its effect was very obvious on literature. The English people though they freaking Lovgren algae, like starting with Chaucer and John Milton and continuing through Shakespeare to Robert bridges in the twentieth century genre scene in France and Johann, Wolfgang von Goethe in Germany revived Greek drama, reworking, the ancient myths for their times, of course. So here we go. Greek mythology. These stories concern that origin and the nature of the world, the lives and activities of DVD's heroes with logical creatures and the origins of significance of the ancient Greeks own cult and ritual practices. The first generation of divine beings were called the proto Genoa, or the primordial deities, who are born from the void of chaos. Oh like everyone else. Very common. So from chaos came guy the personification of the earth. The primal mother earth. Goddess, her Roman equivalent is Tara. T. E. R. R A. Okay. She was mother of the titans, not your worker Tara. I tear. Next to tar. Trysts. TRT A, R US. He is the personification of the underworld, the deep abyss that is used as dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked. So it's kind of a God, but also a place. Okay is the same name in, in the Roman mythology. Aeros was one of the primordial deities per Hess. Yod Aeros was the fourth God to come into existence after chaos guy and Charteris ariza's the personification of love and attraction. And you might see in later stories that he's the son of Aphrodite eighty. But, like there's, there's more stories out there about how he was actually, one of the primordial DD interesting either. Arabists E, R, E S. That's the personification of darkness and shadow. Knicks NYNEX is the personification got us of the night. She's also the mother of hypnosis, which is sleep and Thanatos, which is death. Oh, yeah, you're in. This is the personification of the sky or father sky, his Roman equivalent is Kayla. See a EL US, and he's also the father of the titans and then Amirah H, E M year. A is the personification of day. And the goddess of the daytime, she's also, the daughter of Erebus, and Nick. The daughter of darkness and night, which is interesting as the daughter of darkness and night. So those are the primordial DD. The next generation is the titans. So they were powerful race that ruled the world before the Olympia, which will talk about later in the time of the goal nature of man. They were immortal giants of incredible strength and knowledge of old, religion rituals and magic. They are also known as the elder gods. And their dwelling place was at mount. Authoress HRIS. The first generation of titans were the direct descendants of guy in your inist who originally give birth to twelve titans six males and six females. Sure. They're twelve but I'm not going to go over them all the more important ones include I- apiece. He's the titan of metality the father of permit, ius, Epimetheus Shas, an atlas then minimum seen, she's the tightness of memory and remembrance and the mother of the nine muses. Okay. Them later, high period is the titan of light. He is the father of Helius, the sun selene the moon and use the dawn and then krona's is the titan of harvest. And the personification of destructive time. So the titans Rosa power when their youngest son cronies in a plot with his mother guy, and his brothers castrated. His father urine us with a great stone sickle took the rulership of cosmos, from him that seems extreme. He could have just had a coup, you know. Yeah. Well, did he have to slice it off, you know, to this, this is the word of the Greeks? Yeah, I mean you're right. Very violent so kronas in, in the in the Roman mythology. His name is Saturn in Greek. It's cronies after killing his father. He took the throne with his sister Rhea. So they could rule as king, and Queen a prophecy, though predicted by his father, urine decreed that krona's would also be overthrown by his son, and to prevent this from occurring krona swallowed. Each of his children, you know, like a pill like go, so they were demeanor has Hera Hades in Poseidon. So like, as they were born he just swallowed them. So rea- his sister, wife managed to save the youngest Zeus by hiding him away on the island of Crete, and feeding krona's a stone that was swallowed and cloth. So she gave birth of last one. She was like, no keep this one shoe. She. Wrapped up a big rock in a thing of, you know, a blanket, I mean she was like, this is him any ball of that stone. So Zeus was full grown, he forced cronies to vomit up his siblings. So because there's just hanging out they grew up it'd be like, like adult. Yeah. They were inside. Yeah. So Zeus led the Olympia in ten year war against the tight. Okay. So Zeus was based on Mount Olympus, and the titans on mouth authoress eventually the Olympics were successful. And they drove their opponents into the pit of Charteris the bowels of the earth after freeing his siblings Seuss also released to the. Heck atone Kyrie's and the cyclops who forged her him his lightning bolts Haiti's helmet and Poseidon Trident permit. Yes. Who sides with Zeus and his two brothers Epimetheus and atlas are not imprison and this war atlas is forced to carry the way to the world on his shoulders forever and permit the as the one who defied the gods by helping humans and bringing them fire. He was ultimately chained to a rock where everyday and eagle comes to pick at his innards. Yes. Yes. That is depicted, a couple of times in classical art. Yeah. They love great story. Oh, yeah. More. Innards slumps Slough, so Zuse's generation is the Olympia. Okay. Okay. So this is the third generation. The Olympia are the major deities of the Greek pantheon. They gain their supremacy in ten year long where the gods called the Titanic Machi in which Zeus lettuce siblings victory over the previous generation rolling, God's the first generations of Olympia were offspring of the titans kronas in rea-. Okay. Okay. So I'm going to name them, and then we'll will go over. Scherf. So they were Zeus Poseidon, Hera demeanor, and Hess Chea, along with the principal offspring of Zeus who were Athena Apollo artists. Aries Afridi's, Heff ESTES Hermes, and dynasties. Okay. So although Haiti's was a major Didi in the Greek pantheon. And he was the brother of Zeus and the other first generation of Olympia his realm was far away from Olympics in underworld, and thus he's not usually considered to be one of the Olympia. Oh, really? Okay. Most listings include either hefty ordinances as one of the twelve peons, but I am noting both here. So here they are Philippians in the Greek Zeus and Roman. It's Jupiter or Jove. Okay. Yes. By Jove the British Lovin the Dietz. He's the king of the gods. And the ruler of mental impetus, the husband brother of Hera though, he had many lovers left, lots of. Oh my God. Seuss's God of the sky lightning funder law. Order injustice, his symbols include the federal eagle oak tree, lion, sceptre, and scales. And he has a lightning bolt which is a which is one prong, K local. Local. We'll pronged lightning. All right. Next is Hera in Roman. She's juneau. She is the Queen of the gods. The wife sister Zeus and also the sister of Poseidon, Hades, meter and Hesse Hera is the goddess of marriage, her symbols include the peacock the Kuku in the cow, according to Incheon room and almanacs. It is Juneau and not Janice for whom the month of January is named. Oh, that's interesting. Okay. Nuns whose Janice he's the to face. From accounting. Janice, Kona always has candy on esque. Okay. I mean she's really nice. But the month is. Hey oh, joke. All right. Yes. Janice, j US. Never mind, don't listen to me continue, then there's Poseidon who is reminisce Neptune beside his God of the seas water storms hurricanes earthquakes and horses. I'm he is the brother of eighties to meet her Heston, Hera his symbols include the horse, bull dolphin and tried it. So dang many lovers are spring. That's part of knows, and he has a three pronged, Trident. Okay. Okay, there brother Haiti's, who is not necessarily considered in Olympia. His Roman name is Pluto. And I got a lot on this guy. Okay. So he's got the underworld brother of Zeus Poseidon to meet her down Hera, and he's married to process who he abducts and makes his Queen of the underworld after she eats, pomegranates down there, which was the food of the day. Yes. So, like he thought she was so pretty many kidnapped her just trinity underworld she's like, but I want to go back, and then he kept her down long enough that she was like I'm very hungry so hungry. She ate like a single. Pomegranate, seed and all over. You're here forever. Now that you ate the food of the dead. So the myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation, which shoots forth in the spring and withdraws the earth after harvest. It's basically like Haiti's kidnaps per seventy and her mother meter is like so distraught over all of this, and like she's weeps in Wales and we'll talk about two meter in a minute. But basically, she makes a bargain with Haiti's that, like that percents is allowed to live with her for, like a couple months out of the year. And then the other she stays down in, in the underworld, which is why like sometimes the land is barren. She's down in the world at that time. He is often portrayed with his three headed guard dog Cerberus also seen as passive rather than, evil, his role was often maintaining relative balance. He cared little about what happened in the world above as his primary. Attention was ensuring then of his subjects ever left. He has the cap of invisibility. What that's Harry Potter? Cape ability. Okay. Sorry. It's also called the cap of Haiti's were the helm of darkness who I love that, that enables him to become invisible to other supernatural entities. That's cool. He has eight two pronged implement called a by dent abide by dent. That sounds like something you find in your mouth. Like you gotta really horny by Denton here. We're going to have to remove this immediately. I didn't know he even had like a like an implement the sign as three prong. Trident Zeus has a single lightning bolt. Yeah. And then he's a two prong called Abida. I had no idea. That's cool. So in his underworld, there are six rivers reflecting emotions associated with death. They are sticks which stands for hatred, Acheron, which is for pain. And that's the one that chair on the Ferryman. Oh, yes. Very people cross the is the Atra n- there's less, which is forgetful, nece flag, a Thon, which is fire. Caucus hock. It is. Sure. Why US which is wailing in oceanic which encircles the world? You know when of your emotions. So the place where the judges of the underworld decide, where to send their souls include Elise Eum the fields of as Fidel or Tartus and we'll talk about them like. Another Olympian has. A roman. She's vesta. That is the goddess of the hearth architecture and family. She presided over the baking of bread, which was mankind staple food. She's the sister of, you know that other first generation to meet her in Roman she series she's the goddess of corn and harvest the mother of percents percents is the daughter of demeanor and Zeus, who was kidnapped by Haiti's to be his wife. She lies in mourning for four months of the year L per seventies in the underworld leaving fields baron, which is why we have winter in her symbols include the poppy wheat, torch cornucopia in the pig. Okay. Yeah, a FINA. Well in Roman. She's minerva. She's the goddess of wisdom knowledge reason, intelligent activity, literature, Handicraft science defense strategic warfare, basically. Everybody was, like, what are some things? Yeah. She's in charge. She gets all those. She was the favourite daughter of Zeus, her mother was the OC ended Meta's, which is like a kind of, like ocean dwelling creature Athena, sprang fully formed from Zeus had has he swallowed Meta's afraid that his unborn offspring tried to kill him too, because again with the prophecies and all that her symbols include the olive tree. She's very brave. She's the patron of heroes, and she's also the patron of Athens. So she was kind of in, like a. Not a battle. But like a contest. Oh, yes, I to see who would become the, the patron of Athens, the, you know, the city itself, she gives them an olive tree, and Poseidon gave them a horse pan, but with the olive tree they could have food and wood and shelter, and yeah. All sorts of blue and yes, all great things, so she's the patron of Athens, and another story involving the was she had a contest with Iraq ni about who we've better. So what about like wove abuse tapestry depicting things, but Iraq ni in her tapestry she offended the gods? Like she told a story she wasn't supposed to or anything like that. She offended the gods? So, so instead of like living in shame. Okay, about offending the gods. She killed herself. But Athena brought her back as a spider. Yes. So before that we didn't have any spiders, but this, this good Weaver, who offended the gods and killed herself. Seen abroad broader back as spider. I see. Apollo who also in the Roman world is also named Apollo. Oh, there's the one to one the one. Yeah. Okay. He's the God of light. The sun philosophy poetry music arts, medicine, healing and truth. He is the son of Zeus and Lido in the twin brother of artists. His symbols include the sun bone, arrow Lear in the swan. He's credited with the invention of archery. He is also the most beautiful God in the ideal of the chorus, which is a beardless athletic youth. Apollo is considered the most Greek of all gods.

But she's also believed to bring disease upon women, but also able to relieve them of it. Yeah. So you gotta be careful her temple at feces was one of the seven wonders of the show world, right? Yeah. And you can go back through our catalog, and listen to the about the seven hundred zinc shit world. It was very good. We have Erie's Yahoo in the Roman world. This Mars, he was the God of war violence, bloodshed and manly. Virtues, the son of Zeus in harra, and he was despised by all other gods. Really? Yeah. Real dick on popular symbols included, the bore the serpent the dog vulture, spear, and shield. He is the father of Phobos fear and Dame Ohs terror. Oh, jeez. When Aries does appear in myths, he typically faces humiliation. Oh, so he gets us come up in, yes. Okay. But the Roman version Mars has a more important and dignified place, as the guardian deity. So he's in the Roman version Mars is more than Emma manly valour, rather than like the cruel and bloodthirsty work odd areas to the Greeks. I feel like that was more what I understood areas to be. I've never like heard that he was like, just big old dick, so. Good to know. That's very interesting. There's Aphrodite he sure who in the Roman world, Venus. She's the goddess of love pleasure. Passion, procreation, fertility, beauty and desire. She is the daughter of Zeus in another Oshii ended Joan. Or alternatively.

Old down home or ninety five as Fidel meadows is a place for ordinary or indifferent souls, who did not commit any significant crimes, but who also did not achieve any greatness or recognition that would warrant them being admitted to the higher place. Okay. It was where mortals, who did not belong anywhere else in the world or sent. So it's like Cincinnati. Yeah. Perfect sense.

Missive Obama Jamila, calm. And let us know if you wanna be our third fury. I call the one to put all of the adulterers. Okay. Migra perfect. Another group that goes along with them states. Oh, yeah. They're also known as the more ri-. The fates are three mysterious sisters who affect the paths of all in the universe cloth. Oh, spins the threat of life Lakisha measures and assigns each person's threat. And Tropez snips the threat of life at the end. Troposphere also chose the manner of each person's death. And when their time has come she cut their life thread with her aboard shears. You know what this hap-? This is in Hercules, okay? Yeah. Like it's very accurate. The way you described that because they like one weaves they're, they're all blind. I think like. Yeah. No, it's not even a song like just like you chat. The thread to you're gonna die like one has one, I and one has, like three is they're very grotesque but they have long spindly fingers, and they pull the thread and the other one has a big para scissors. And when she cuts it, it's like magical to watch Hercules before doing this. No. I mean, it's all the same stuff, but you hear like a screen like okay, yeah, it's cool. You gotta watch it. Fate is the only force to rule above both gods. And men. So the fates arguably have more power than anyone else in the Greek universe in Roman mythology. They recalled known ah the ninth for the nine months of pregnancy Deysi, Ma the tenth and mortar the dead one. Oh my God. Can we be them instead? Twenty twenty one we'll do twenty twenty one. Okay. I know the group ladies the muses. Oh, yeah. So Zeus in the form of a mortal shepherd and Menem's even slept together for nine consecutive nights, thus conceiving, the nine muses. This is how this works. So I'll, I'll tell you what their names are, and then what they are the muse for okay. Colli P is epic poetry. Cleo is history. That's cli. Oh you Turkey. E. U T R. P is music, Aratu is Lear poetry. Mope Amine is tragedy. Polly him Neha is hymns turps core is danced. Talia is comedy and Urania is a strana me. Oh, yeah. That's great talk about monsters. Let's talk about monsters Medusa is a three organs Medusa is a horrible woman beast, with snakes for hair, and her gaze turns men to stove so many. Good. Halloween ideas, she is killed by the hero perseus on the for is half man, half bull monster that terrorizes me, no says labyrinth. He was created by data Lewis and the miniaturize killed by the hero, Theseus, the sphinx, a beast with the head of a woman and the body of a winged lion. The sphinx blocks entry to the city of Thebes refusing to budge until somebody answers, her riddle and eats, anyone who fails she eats. That's high stakes when Oedipus solves the riddle the sings promptly kills herself because she's like, well what more do I with the point? Now, I gotta reputation. The cyclops are fearsome one I- giants of whom Polyphemus is the most famous in some, that's the cyclops are the children of heaven and earth and others. They were the sons of Poseidon. They forged the thunderbolts Zeus, who favors them Polyphemus is the terrible cyclops, who imprisons deceased and his men and eats them alive. They escape only after blinding him in later myths. He becomes a pitiful, character recovers, his sight. But chases after the cruel Galilea who mocks him his we got one. We mentioned service vile three headed dog that guards, the gates of Hades. And then there's Scylla and this. Yes, it makes us appearance in a police song. Yeah. Sting like throw in a lot of like Hugh references Nabokov. He references skill and Caribbean. I said that wrong. But yeah. Mindset, right? I don't know. Pronounced. I'm not an ancient Greek ski skill and Caribbean, his K. So they're monsters that lived on either side of a narrow channel of water, the two sides of the street were within an EROs range of one another, so close that sailors attempting to avoid a trip this, that world pool would pass, dangerously close to Silla six headed monster and vice versa. So the there is a an idiom that has made it to modern times between Scylla and trip. This has come to mean being forced to choose between two. Similarly dangerous situation. Interesting, like, I guess, between rock and her place doesn't really give you quite as. Yeah. Dramatic. No. I like that better start using that, if I could learn how to pronounce cylin Caribbean news, dribbed us, Karen. If you speak ancient Greek. I found out, I probably have said this on the podcast before. So stop me if I've already said this, I found out from an NPR episode that ancient Greek. They've discovered it was a tonal language. Okay. So they had a guy giving an example of reading it and he was like roll roll like it was so good. And like funny. That I was transfixed. So just so, you know, ancient Greek was tonal. Hey, go. Well, somebody wrote some stuff down. The Trojan war. Oh, yeah. We'll just cover this real quick. It's detailed in the Iliad. The book is named for the city of Troy, which was called Ilian. Wait what the, the book Elliott? Yeah. About the city of Troy sure, which was called Ilian. The city of Troy was both Troy and Liam now. It's called Troy, then it was called illegal odds. You got you. I m listening. I mean, like or in one language, it was called say okay, so the Trojan war was waged against the city of Troy by the Kenyans or the Greeks the were originally from a quarrel between the goddesses Hera Athena and Afra DeeDee after heiress the goddess of strife in discord, gave them a golden apple. Oh zone is the apple of discord, which was to be given to the fairest? That's a bad Zeus sent the goddesses to Paris. A son of king Priem of Troy, who judged that Aphrodite iw as the fairest should receive the apple in exchange effort. Eighty made Helen the most beautiful of all women in the wife of Menelaus fall in love with Paris who then took her to Troy Agamemnon the king of mice, and the brother of Helen's husband, mental ause, led an expedition of key in troops, Detroit and besieged the city for ten years, because of Paris's insult, which was basically kidnapping, the Spartan kings wife Helen after the deaths of many heroes, including the key ins achilles. And Ajax the Trojans, Hector and Paris. The. City fell to the Reuss of the Trojan horse, they fought for like nine years, by the way. Well, like finally deceased came up with a plan a giant hollow wooden worse. An animal that was sacred to the Trojans. Okay. So you know what that makes more sense that they were like, yeah. Bring this giant hollow horse and here. Yeah. Basically, they were. They were like this is great. We can use this as an offering to our to our gods. Right up like we burn it or whatever. So the hollow horse was filled with soldiers led by a deceased the rest of the army burns, the camp and sailed away. And when the Trojans discovered that the Greeks were gone, believing the war was over, they joyfully dragged the horse inside the city while they debated what to do with some thought they ought to hurl, it down the rocks other sought, they should burn it. And other said, they ought to dedicate it to eat them. The fellow woman, Cassandra. Okay. He was cursed to utter prophecies that were true. But no one believed that size told everyone not to keep it. But again, no one listened to are the Trojans decided to keep the horse and turned to a night of mad revelry and celebration the key and soldiers from inside the horse, emerged and killed the guards. They entered the city and killed everyone who is asleep and continue their massacre in the next day. And the Greeks then burn the city in divided the spoils the gods were very angry over the destruction of their temples, and other sacrilegious acts by the cans, and they decided that most would not be able to return home. Where we get to some of our heroes. Okay. Dizziness. Sure. In the Roman world. He's ulysses. Yes. This is the protagonist of Homer's odyssey. His name, literally means trouble in Greek. Oh, that's cool. I didn't know that. He is the king of and a great warrior in the Trojan war, but his best known for his decade long trip home from the war. So the odyssey was actually the sequel to the Iliad. So the Iliad was about the Trojan war, and the Odyssey's about a deceased trying trying to get home. So here's the synopsis of it is of the odyssey for those of us that never read it the odyssey begins after the end of the ten year Trojan were an deceased has still not returned home from the war because he angered the God Poseidon deceased son Telemakos is about twenty years old and is sharing. His absent father's house on the island of Ithaca with his mother Penelope a crowd of one hundred eight boisterous. Young men also called the suitors. Wait, they share a house with a big house? This poor woman shares a house with one hundred nine Deutz, one hundred eight of them who wanna sleep with her. Yeah. Yeah. So one hundred eight men of their oh, the suitors, and their aim is to persuade Penelope to Mary, one of them all, while reveling in a deceased palace eating his wealth, so. Oh my God. That's night, mare a deceased protectorates. The goddess Athena request is king of the gods to finally allow a deceased to return home. When Poseidon is absent for Mount Olympus to accept sacrifice all the way in Ethiopia turns out, a deceased has been held captive by calypso on the island Ojeda for seven years. She is ordered to release him by the messenger. God Hermes, who sent who was sent to there by Zeus in response to the plea deceased builds a raft in is given clothing food, and drink by calypso when Poseidon learns that a deceased has escaped, he wrecks the raft, but helped by Vail, given to him by the scene. E-e-e-e-no dec- swims ashore on island and makes friends with the facetious like. Facetious. P. H. E. A CIA. There's just a bunch of like ironic. Yeah. So he tells the story to them, which includes visit the Lotus eaters, which is where forgetfulness and then to the cave of polythene near the land of the cyclops, so policy Eastman, a deceased calls him. No self nobody and blinds the cyclops. So when the everyone's like, why are you screaming and he's like I'm blind? They're like, who blind you. He's like, nobody blinded me. Oh. Very clever, his men in he escaped hanging onto the underbelly of the sheep from Ohio seems this cave so like as he's leaving the sheep out of he puts his hands down, like on top of the sheep and doesn't feel any men bigger, the sheep. Guess they're very, very Big Joe. So so they hit escaped this guy's escaped the cyclops, but it is foolishly taunted, Polyphemus, and revealed his trade entity. So as their sailing, he was like it is. Who has peaching you? That's a mistake. So Poseidon who's the father of policy miss, then cursed a deceased to wander the for ten years during which he would lose all of us grew in return home, only through the aid of others, after the escape, a deceased and his crusade, with alias. King endowed by the gods. With the winds. He gave it as a leather bag containing all the winds except the west wind a gift that would have ensured, a quick safe return house. Yeah. Just as if came into sight, the greedy, sailors, open the bag this, you slept thinking, contained gold. But instead, all the winds flew out and the resulting storm. Drove the ships all back where they came. You know, and that is when a deceased killed all his men, and that's why he came home alone. The men, then encountered, summating giants oh gosh. And then a deceased ship reached an island with the witch goddess, but a deceased had been warned by Hermes, and he took an herb called moly, which made him resistant, it's magic. Later, they had the problem with the sirens, who sang Incheon song that normally caused passing fillers to steer toward the rocks hit them and sink all the sailors, had their ears plugged up with beeswax except for a deceased, who was tied to the mast since he wanted to hear the song, he told a sailor's not to untie as it would only make one drought himself. They then pass through between the six months or Silla and the world. Poultry abyss nearly voiding death then there was a big shipwreck and only deceased revived until he was taken in by clip. So he gets home, finally with the help of these guys. He's been telling the story to all along. Yeah. He wins an archery competition to compete for his wife Penelope. And then he sleighs all the suitors. So the goddamn blood. Oh, gosh. That's the odyssey everybody. And then, you know that he didn't just subtle in for, like a nine to five job where they had like what? What? No, no, no. That did not happen. The one of the other big heroes that we all got annot is hair Cleese, okay? Roman. He's Hercules in Greek. He's heracles. It's gotten a little a little muddled between time so hair. Cleese is the son of Zeus who rises to Olympia at his death, the Romans adopted the Greek version of his life in works essentially unchanged. Perk, Yalies is renowned for his incredible strengthen bay ry. But he lacks intelligence and self control. Most of adventures begin with a horrible mistake that he makes in his attempts to fix it. His most famous fees are the twelve labours of Heracles. Oh, you're the punishment he receives for murdering his family in a fit Amandus. I'm sorry. That's his Virginia. That's not in the Disney version, everyone so to tone for his crime. Herrick was required to carry out ten but he added two more. Labor's set by his arch enemy, your Theiss, who had become king inheritances place, if he succeeded, he would be fight of a sin and as myth. Said he would become a God and be graded immortality. So he is a lot on the line live. Yeah. Lot lot to go ahead and do these things. So I he was just given ten things to do like, here's my to do list just done. And then you're added more to it. Here's what they are one slay, the nemean lion. Eric lease defeated align that was attacking the city of with his bare hands. And after he succeeded he wore the skin is a cloak to demonstrate his power over the opponent. He had just feed. It. Okay. That's a little much. But okay to slay the nine headed hydra, fire, breathing monster with a lion's head in a body of many snakes which lay in a swamp near learn a- Hera had Senate in hope that it would destroy hair his home city, because she thought it was invincible with help from his nephew, I allows heat defeated the monster. And he dipped his Aero's in its poisoned blood, thus envenom, ising them, by the way. Hera like does not like any of this. And she's trying to get like all up in his way like just throw like obstacles everywhere. Okay. She. Yeah. So number two, the hydro number three capture the golden hind of Artemis not to kill but to catch this monster. So it's different but still difficult task it costs time. But having chased it for a year. Heracles were out the hind and presented it alive to your ceus. So that's just like a deer Artem. You just had to catch it. So he rain after it for a year until it finally was like still alone. And then he just kinda like gave it a quick hug. Yeah. Took it to your ceus. Four capture air mantha in bore a fierce marauding bore on the loose. Your c is set haircuts labor of catching it and bringing it to my sin. Again, this is a time consuming task but he done. Did it good for him number five clean the stables in a single day? So the stables for the home of three thousand cattle with poisoned feces, which Agios had been given by his father Helius like. Here's the present for you kid is three thousand cows who boop. Poisoned things. Yeah. Accomplish this by digging ditches on both sides of the stables moving stables into the ditches and then diverting the rivers Alfio and Pinault's to wash the dishes clean. That's, that's how he cleaned. The stables. Number six slay, the stim- failure in birds. So these aggressive meeting birds were terrorizing a forest near lakes, Tim Falla in northern Arcadia Heracles scared them with a rattle given to him by Athena, to frighten them into flight away from the forest allowing him to shoot, many of them with his bone marrow which he had dipped in the poison of Heino, right? And bring them back. He brought some of their carcass back to earth as a proof. That's cool number seven capture the Creedon bull. So this bull was the father of the miniature, and it was laying waste to the fields around Knossos on Crete hairclips captured it, and carried it on his shoulders to wrists interior ins your ceus released it. When it wandered to marathon, which then terrorized until it was killed by the so the story of the Cretan, bull is kind of like a two parter like it was doing all this damage hairclips caught. It gave it to your ceus and then Orissa's like, I don't want to keep this crazy bull, and then he released it, but then it was. Killed by another hero. Theseus late. I say, okay. Number eight steel, the mayors of diameters so stealing the horses from diabetes stable had been trained by their owner to feed on human flesh. Oh was so his task was to capture them. And then also just hand them over to your he company. He -ccomplish this task by feeding king diabetes to the animals before binding, their mouths shut. So this king had like train his train his horses to only human flesh. And then Hercules, you're right. We got a we got stop this. So he ended up binding their mouths shut so that they wouldn't. Anymore anymore in the movie, Hercules, I keep referencing this, but it's very easy film Hercules, Disney film Hercules, there, he they show all of his labours of Hercules, the last like nine or whatever are like in a montage, which is kind of funny. Yeah, I can see that. Number nine obtain the girdle of Hypolito Queen of the Amazons. He did it under bar. Yeah. Obtain the cattle of the monster Jerry on. So this is a heard that was guarded by two headed dog called or threes. A herdsman era Tian and the owner of the cattle, Gary on okay, who has a giant with three heads and six arms to. Okay. That makes tracks. No, I got it. So here killed the first two this club and then the third with a poison arrow haircuts than heard the cattle. And with difficulty took them to your Theus. But, you know along the way. I was like he is actually in those, so we're going to give him two more things to do. Number eleven was steal the apples of the Hysteresis. So these sacred for protected by Hera, who had set laid on a fearsome hundred headed dragon Ardian. They were like what is better than three headed dragon hundred but a hundred. So hairclips had to I find where the garden was. So he on his journey, he came across permit IOUs Heracles shot the eagle, who was eating his liver earn. He helped hairclips with knowledge that his brother atlas would know where the garden was. So Hercules, went all the way to see. Atlas atlas offered to help them with the apples if he could just hold up the heavens for like a minute. While he was gone, but then atlas tricked him and he didn't come back. I don't know how, but Hercules returned the trick. Green miniature get atlas back to taking the burden of the heavens, once again, and he was able to steal the golden apples and return them to my sinning and finally the twelfth labor was to capture and bring back service, your was so frustrated that hairclips was, like just zipping through all these tasks that he'd given him that he imposed one more. He believed to be impossible hairclips had to go down into the underworld of Haiti's and capture the ferocious three headed dog service, who guarded the gates church. He used the souls to help convince Haiti's to hand over the dog. And he agreed to give him the dog if he used no weapons to obtain him haircut succeeded. And he took the creature back to my Sonate causing your ceus to be fearful of the power and the strength of this hero. And then he you know, he got his everything absolved there. He is his good great ready to go. Quick aside. There is a book. It's a short story book by Agatha Christie, you know, the character of ECU while row, you bought rule coupon since his name is ECU or Hercules Poirot. There is a book called labors of Hercules, the labor of her cue or whatever. And each one of the short stories he solves crime. That is themed like even kind of like tangentially around e like each labor. It's very I gotta go get it. Yeah. I haven't. Okay. Great. And he does it on purpose like he says, at the beginning, he was like, but achilles and I can do I do a lib. Girl woman. Yes. And I think it's I don't think he does twelve I think maybe he does like eight either way. It's very good. Great. A few more Greek heroes feces. He's a son of king of Athens, and mythical, king, and founder hero of Athens. Theseus is the model citizen. He is a kind leader, good to his friends and countrymen and he's the one who killed the miniature these fell in love with in later, abandoned area ni and later doubted his own son, which ended up leading to his tragic demise. So these kind of was like on the upswing, and then he kind of bottom now, Jason, which doesn't sound like a Greek name, Gino, when I went to college with Jason also my cousin. Yeah. Jason assembled. A cast of here is to travel on a long fraudulent quest the recovery of the golden fleece, when Jason arrived in cultures to retrieve the fleece. The daughter of the king Madisha fell in love with him. Jason abandoned her, and married, a Princess later, for political gain in, in revenge with the kills Jason's new wife in her own children hat by Jason. So there's, there's some really good passages in this in Daniel, Mallory, or bergh's texts. From Jane Eyre religious, like the first time I ever came across media. But I was like this is very good perseus whose oozes sun by the beautiful Princess today. So Denise father for warn that perseus would someday kill him locked the infant in his mother in a trunk and cast it into the sea perseus arrives comes of age and sets out to kill the monster Medusa and bring back her head. But as prophesied he killed his grandfather, though, unwittingly by hitting him with a stray discus. Oh, there's perseus Oedipus is the son of the king of the at his. Freeze the from the menace of the sphinx in Mary's the wicked Queen Dacosta. Uh-huh. Unaware that she is his mother. Beautiful older lady, who surprisingly looks a lot, like me as my mom. Learning. The truth later, he faces feet, and he blinds himself as penance. Not only does he blind himself. He blinds himself with his mother's burrow, churches. Like he literally takes to broach is like. I remember distinctly remember, reading that in eighth grade English class and being horrified by that to me thing. There's a Killys who's the most famous Greek. In the Trojan were who strengthen brave, your unrivaled achilles selfless Craigslist devoted to the gods? He is the finest Greek warrior his mother, the C Nim fetus has made him invulnerable everywhere, except for his he'll, where she was holding him when she dipped him into the river sticks for protection again. Like take pop pop, you know. You know cake and he put it around us stick. And then you dip it in chocolate cake. Pop. She cake pop. You'll remember this. Yeah. Like pyeho achilles the cake pop so right in his heel is where he was struck by Paris's aero. And that's how he died at play by a delicious. Brad Pitt in the Troy movie? Okay. I remember next hitting nothing about that movie except he's an attendant. He's getting dressed new see the curve of his bare s and it is golden. Can I tell you? Google something everybody to yourselves a favor. Arrestees is the hero of the rest. Yeah. Which is Asia's treat trilogy of plays. So arrestees father is the great king Agamemnon, who was leader of the Greeks in the Trojan were in his sister is the sacrificed if genu- when his mother Clayton Nesta kills Agamemnon to avenge her daughter. If agendas death restes than kills her as a result, the horrible furious plague him until he tones for his cry. A couple more notable Greek characters. Okay. Pandora. Yes, she was the first and most famously foolish woman of Greek myth. She was married to Epimetheus premisses simple-minded, brother. And she was entrusted with a jar that the gods had told her never to open pin door, peeks inside the jar unleashing evil into the world. But she manages the close the jar just in time to save hope humankind's only solace. So this is why I wonder why Pandora is the name of, of jewelry company. Uh-huh. Because Dora's not a good story. Yeah. It's true. Yes. She releases evil into the world. You really wanna societas with that with your streaming music site, too. I don't know. Yeah, I don't know. Matter anymore. The Orkla Delphi was a priest of Apollo and the most famous prophet in all of Greece. Humans typically consulted the oracle to ascertain the will of the gods or of a person's fate. She most often appears at the beginning of a story, as a character asks his fate, finds it unpleasant, and then tries to change it only do become a victim of fate precisely because of his efforts to change it. Ariadne as I mentioned, before she was the daughter of king menas of Crete area and he falls in love with the hero Theseus and uses a golden thread to help him defeat, the labyrinth of the dreaded miniter. Media, along with her. She Medina's one of two famous sources in Greek myth Medina selflessly helps Jason defeat her own father and obtain the golden fleece. But after Jason turns on her she kills his new wife and then no sure our own children, and Orpheus. He is a poet and musician that had almost supernatural abilities to move anyone to his music. He descended to the underworld as a living mortal to retrieve his dead wife, it ac- after she was bitten by poisonous snake- on their wedding day with his Lear playing skills. He was able to put a spell on the guardians of the underworld and move them with his music, and with his beautiful voice, he was able to convince eighties and process to allow him his wife to return to the living the rulers of the underworld agreed. But under one condition, you're at a c would have to follow behind Orpheus, and he could not turn around to look at her Ono. That's no once Orpheus had reached the entrance he turned around. Longing. To look at his beautiful wife only to watch as she faded back into the underworld, and he was forbidden to return to the underwrote a second time. Then he spent the rest of his life playing music to the birds amount. So say I actually like just this past week saw, like a, a version of the distracted boyfriend Meam. Oh, yeah. It was like the destructive boyfriend was in the girl in front of him was you're at a see the, the one he was holding hands with Haiti's or something. Very, very this. And then the last one that everybody should just know who it is Nike and is the goddess of victory. And in the Roman the Romans called her victory. Yeah. One more good legend, just Roman not Greek. Oh, okay. On more good legend the founding of Rome. Oh, sure. Yeah. Them. So rhyming listen Ramos, we all of them, right? But do we know their story? Wolves. I think something about wolves. So rhyming listen Ramos were born in Albelda, one of the ancient Latin cities near the future site of room. Their mother Rhea Sylvia was a Vestal virgin and the daughter of the former king in some sources Rhea, Sylvia, conceived them, when their father, the God Mars visited her in a secret group, dedicated to him and through their mother at the twins were descended from Greek and Latin ability, seeing them as a possible threat to his role.

Meanwhile had organized an effort to freeze, brother and set out with help for the city during the sign they learned of their past, and they joined forces with their grandfather to restore him to the throne.

That is interpreting omens through the flight of birds. So, yeah, so remiss I saw six auspice birds, but then Romulus saw twelve also he claimed to have one divine approval this kind of mess up their dynamic point. So in the aftermath remiss was killed either by Romulus or by one of his supporters Romulus, then went on to found the city of Rome. It's institutions government, military and religious traditions, and he reigned many years as its first king. My sister has always said that if she was ever have child, she would name him.

Give you a minute to think, and we'll be back with your answers. I didn't hear half of those because I've been focusing on an answer for one of them. And I'm hoping it's just gonna pop into my head. Okay. Let's do this. As mentioned before only to natural elements are in a liquid state at room, temperature mercury a medal and bromine halogen from what solid source or the common name for bright scarlet or brick red form of mercury sulfide is Ella mental mercury refined. It is the source of the paint, pigment called vermillion and also the name of the only island Pokemon, red and blue. I know came on. It was hit. No. The only thing I can think of is Carmine. And I don't think that's even like a thing is cinnabar cinnabar. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay. So cinnabar generally occurs as a vein filling mineral associated with recent volcanic activity as the most common source of mercury in nature. Cinnabar has been mined for thousands of years, even as far back as the Neolithic age during the Roman empire. It was mined, both as a pigment and for its mercury content. So to produce liquid mercury crushed cinnabar or is roasted in rotary furnaces, the pure mercury separates from the sulfur in the process in evaporates in a condensing column is used to collect the liquid metal, which is then shipped in iron flasks. That's maisy. That's like alchemy. It's amazing vermillion is just powdered cinnabar, but because of its cost in Texas is almost entirely been replaced by the synthetic color. Cadmium rea- one would hope question to which twentieth century Swiss sculptor of tall men in slender figures, not. Carved. Pumpkins is the creator of the top three highest selling sculptures of all time. Is that Giacometti? It is Jack medi Albert though, Jack Kennedy, who is Swiss Lomo, doi-, which is the pointing man was auction at Christie's in twenty fifteen four one hundred forty one point three million dollars. I don't understand what Giacometti sells for. Jacka many in his sculpture, loam key. Marsh. Appear on the current one hundred Swiss franc banknote. Wow. Yeah. It's so I mean, I guess I don't know. We could expound upon Giacometti his, but we don't have we don't have the time question. Three today. Mercury Nevada is closed city northwest of Las Vegas in the nineteen fifties, though, the thriving town was constructed to house and service, the staff of what specific reserved area developed by the atomic energy commission. I mean. I just thought it was like the atomic testing site. Is would we take that the Tomich testing side? I need a different word in the first. Set of atomic. Yeah. The bomb testing site, the American testing site states it in the Nevada's testing site Nevada test site, all what it was formerly called, formerly known as the Nevada proving grounds. The site was established in nineteen fifty one for the testing of nuclear devices covering, approximately one thousand three hundred sixty square miles of desert and mountainous terrain the mushroom clouds from the one hundred atmosphere. Iq tests could be seen for almost one hundred miles Las Vegas experienced noticeable. Seismic affects and the mushroom clouds which could be seen from the downtown hotels became tourist attractions and horrifying. Yeah. We went to the atomic testing museum. Yes, last time last time, we're in Las Vegas. And it was just so over over my head like, oh, this is nice history time line, isn't that fun? Oh, look, here's a case that has, like, candy hall Tomic. And then we got to the rooms that was like, in, here's what this is what atom bombs look like yeah. And I was just like I don't understand any of this. And it was also like disturbing. It was also. There was an overlay of just like kind of tragic disturb. I mean, obviously it's about the atomic bomb like, there's not anything like about that. But yeah, it was good. It was a good museum. Yeah. Question for on may fifteenth twenty nineteen a three foot tall stainless steel figure called rabbit became the most expensive work by living artists sold at auction when it went for ninety one million dollars at Christie's in New York City, which divisive artists also known for pieces like balloon. Doug parentheses orange created this piece Jeff Koons. It is Jones. Everybody can tell you every art historian and curator at that I know hates living hell out of Jeff Koons, I got to experience of really great diatribe today from listener Ryan corn. Myers posted like odd one of these like trivia things that you've just like went off on coons. It was pretty good. Dr ryan. Yeah. Hey, thanks for listening, Ryan, and I agree with you. One hundred ten percent. But a side from inflatables and balloon animals. Coons is also known for the nineteen Ninety-two piece called puppy say, forty three foot or thirteen meter tall topiary structure of a west Highland white terrier puppy executed in a variety of flowers on a transparent, color, coded chrome stainless steel substructure and puppy is now outside the Guggenheim museum Bilbao, which is that's cuter than the balloon animals. I guess so I don't know. It's just also surface level and garbagey yet no one million dollars free three tall bunny. Yeah. Well just goes to show that the art world doesn't know what the hell they're doing. The commercial art yet, I'm saying. Yeah. Question five, one of the eight original franchises of the WNBA the team, mercury resides in what major city where they currently play at the talking stick resort arena. Talking stick. Is this a US city it is US city? Is that what's, what's a city in Montana bozeman? Do you think Montana has any professional sports? Well, I don't know. You talking sticks. I'm thinking, like native American and. I don't know what is a. Does that help, you know, it doesn't what? Phoenix. Oh, you're a bird. Okay. All right. Mercury. Okay. That makes sense. They were founded in nineteen Ninety-seven, and they have been home to many high quality players such as former uconn sharpshooter, Diana Terresa, Rutgers grad capi, pond exer-, former temple power forward, Candice Duprey, former Baylor center, brittney Griner, an Australian guard penny Taylor. The mercury went to the WNBA finals four times and lost to Houston in nineteen ninety eight they won the title, three times, two thousand seven two thousand nine in two thousand fourteen the mercury's NBA counterpart is the Phoenix Suns. Oh, sure. Yeah. Question. Six in two thousand seven in early. Roman bronze sculpture of the ancient Greek goddess Artemis, and a stag was placed in auction fetching twenty eight point six million dollars, which contemporary art museum from the Empire State made waves or just pounding. Sounds by secretly accepting this beloved work from its holdings in two thousand six by claiming it fell outside the scope of its mission secretly in two thousand secretly accession the work it was at the Whitney. No was at the Albright Knox. It was the right knocked. That was my first guest. But then I felt that they had done that above board. But I guess they didn't he? All right. Knocks art gallery. I was a Buffy deal York. Yeah. So the bronze sculpture was originally excavated in the nineteen twenties from a construction site in Roman it changed hands several times before finding at home at Albright. Knox. The sale of this piece was controversial because the decision was made in secret and not revealed to the public until the items had already been sent to the auction house people were so pissed off. So a southern was the house that broker the deal in it turns out that an employee of the auction house was the daughter of one of the museum's board members at the time of sale, which is like a pretty outrageous conflict of interest. Yup. And it wasn't announced when the sale was disclosed, so there was a big lawsuit to block the sale that got thrown out. But people think there was like a lot of corruption involved. It was like, oh, well the judge threw out the lawsuit was appointed by this person. Yeah. Brother of this person on the board. So the sale raised questions about how museums can remain vital when they're situated in economically, declining regions and have limited means raising funds for operations and acquisitions? So, basically, the Albright Knox was like, well, actually we do a lot more like contemporary and modern art. And so this piece doesn't really fit our thing. But really, it was like they needed the money. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. And twenty eight billion dollars keep your lights on for a lot. Players. I mean there's a lot of ethics dick session that I tell my students about which I'm not going to repeat here because some of them are listening and they already know but all right now is was held up for the longest time as like the example of what you're not supposed to do session, and sell off our work and granted, it's true. Like the Albright Knox, historically has always been a modern contemporary museum. They have never been like encyclopedic or like kept anything that was ancient or whatever it just wasn't within their scope. But the fact that they session at secretly is garbage like yeah. I will say at the MAG when we do sessions, all of those sessions go onto our website. And like if you want to know what we're currently exhibiting at have dick session. You can go to our website, look at them. So and that's like what you're supposed to do. It's not like we're the best. It's just this lot as will take seven felt that people don't realize exactly. Yeah. And one last tidbit about that Albright Knox's, current exhibition space can actually only comedy about two hundred works which is only about three percent of its six thousand seven hundred forty piece collection. So, but the but the work itself was like beloved. Oh, yeah. People loved it. It was like they kept it on displaying pretty frequently in their little side gallery for a long time, but I will say they have a phenomenal collection. Oh my God. Honestly, like a real state of the art modern contemporary collection of good. Good, good, good you when you a little gem in the city of buffalo. Yeah, definitely go and then pop over cross the street of the burchfield Penney. Great contemporary, art gallery. Whereas our, where's our buffing? Dot com. We're not getting any money yet, yet, questions of it the United States mints, mercury dime, ten coins circulation from nineteen sixteen and nineteen forty five is actually a misnomer. It wasn't the Roman God mercury on the obverse. But instead, which figure wearing a fridge in cap with wings. I don't know. And I feel like this figure is on one of our buildings in Rochester, isn't maybe I'm wrong. Maybe that is supposed to be mercury. Anyway, I don't know who is it? It's lady liberty. What is also called the wing liberty dime. What though what? Yeah. So if someone's talking about the mercury dime, it's actually the wing liberty dime. Oh I had no idea. She was liberty. Yeah. So yeah, because it's just like a head. It's not like a whole body. It's just like the head with the cap in the wings and people thought that the cap in the wings. Yeah. Meant that it was mercury or Hermes. Shut actually Lee liberty, so the sculptor Adolph wineman is believed to have used Elsie Stevens. The wife of lawyer and poet Wallace Stevens us his model for lady liberty the coins, reverse depicts a Fassi's, which symbolizes unity and strength, which is kind of like a bundle of. Hey. Oh. And all of branch that symbolizes peace the mid released a centennial version in gold of the mercury dime on April twenty first twenty sixteen in it's sold through the official website, but demand was so high that orders were no longer able to be pleased within forty five minutes of the coin become that's the MRs, they were all about his golden winged liberty dime. They love those coins question, eight French American artists. Louise bourgeois was famous for her large scale sculptures, installation, art created into credited in addition created into dish in six not eight spindly creatures in nineteen Ninety-six to which have sold as the two most expensive auction sculptures ever made by a woman, including one in may twenty nineteen also depicted in her thirty foot high thirty three feet wide peace memorial for what invertebrate animal is Bush was best known spider. It is the spider, you see these things I've seen it like the National Gallery in Washington. I've. I've seen pictures of I've never seen a Louis there. Jain ormuz. Yeah. So I like this quote from her. Louise bourgeois said the spider is an ode to my mother. She was my best friend like a spider. My mother was Weaver. My family was in the business of tapestry restoration, and my mother was in charge of the workshop like, spiders. My mother was very clever. Spiders are friendly presences that eat mosquitoes. We know that mosquito spread diseases and were there for unwanted, so spiders are helpful in protective just like my mother, those nice little in this essay, I will. I saw Louis bourgeois at Tf the art, fair and New York. It was a contemporary art fair at the armory. I dunno. Very weighty toity. I didn't get imitation. How oh I did neither I had to pay fifty dollars skin. But they had like little carts of champagne that you could buy about a little glasses ship for twenty seven dollars and they had a salmon oyster bar. In case you're feeling peckish, but there was a Louis, bourgeois, it was a felted armless legless woman in pink pink felt and she had a little turquoise necklace on, and she had a what my Spanish co worker called teats and a little like jagged mouth, and everything. And she was standing upright under a hand blown glass cloche on a silver table. And we loved it because it was so funny and like so weird. And so my boss just walked up to the gallery girl, scrubbed clean who were wearing like men's clothes, and she said that Luis Pujols, so, provocative, how much is it? And she was like, it's a series of two and that one is just under two million. And it took all of me, not to, like, clutch at my chest and hearing that. And just to her credit just kind of mildly said. Oh, really? It's wonderful. And she's like, yes. Little turquoise, necklaces, so witty, don't you think I gotta get outta here? I can't do this, too. Yeah. Oh my gosh. But yes, it was very cool to see in person. For what it's worth? Question. Nine okay. Freddie Mercury lead vocals, and piano for the British rock band Queen, I'm name four songs. And you tell me if they're real titles of songs recorded by Queen or something, I made okay I'm gonna totally stab in the dark here. I I'm in love with my car, real. Yes. Real from nineteen seventy five on the elbow on night at the opera. Okay. Number two, ogre battle. Not real ogre battle is real. It's from nineteen Seventy-three on the Queen to man. Okay. Number three. Tenement funster. Not real Israel on the nineteen seventy four album sheer heart attack. Are these all real and number four football fight real agus? Oh my God. Real, it's from nineteen eighty from flash Gordon. Football fight football fight. So they're all real real. Oh my God. Come up with anything. I know so good. Unless I'm in finally question ten in twenty eight Tina polished, brass sculpture on carve metal base, titled, Liz young sophisticate portrayed in on C Kuhn, sold for seventy one million dollars, which patriarch of modern sculpture, and creator of an impressive Oman, the Romanian heroes of the first World War, as well as the sculptural series bird in space, made this piece of portraiture and polished brass. Very good. It's just great there. That is Constantine Cousy at is. I think it is pronounced Brin Kush. Oh, really? Okay. I've never heard it spoken aloud, yes. He also created a large commemorative sculpture in his homeland accepting the commission in nineteen thirty five but refusing to receive payment for it. So the result was an on samba three sculptures. It's called the table of silence. The gate of the kiss, and the endless column. So the best known one is probably the endless column, which stacks fifteen Rome, Boito modules with a half unit at the top and bottom making total of sixteen. That is about ninety six feet tall or about three meters high Nancy, Cunard. Who's the? Who this extensive sculpture was made up? She was an Anglo American Aaronson writer, and she was a major patron of the artists and writers in Paris between the two wars. That's cool. His female figureheads in brass Arp stunningly beautiful. Yes. So he, he seemed to do a lot of brass. Yeah, a lot of smaller skit not smaller, but like like human sized like burden space is at the MoMA very beautiful in person. It's so elegant it looks like it's like like just a tiny sliver of brass in, like this beautiful vitrine. It's very gorgeous more impressive in person. And that's all that was that. Is it good quiz?

At the same time helping keep our podcast going. I always tell entrepreneurs that if you're completely comfortable, you've probably waited too long. You need to be a little bit uncomfortable about the decisions that you're making in the leaps that you're making whether it's. Inspiration for future snowboarders so We cover it all on this podcast isn't not just business greg that's right. Well, I'm sure you can draw an analogy on. The analogy to snowboarding when you're starting a business you're. Even back, then I was like I, know this is a tiny office I had my eye on the next office that would be bigger and better and greater, and could actually accommodate a couple of more employees. Remember these two, I, think they were freshmen in college. They came to talk to me and they wanted advice on entrepreneurship and they came to see my tiny little office and they looked at it and they're like, wow, this is amazing. You made it. They left had to reflect on that because each step that you make it's hard. You don't realize the progress that you have made. My name is Greg Reyes and I'm based in the Boston area on forty three years old and been entrepreneur software guy for a number of years built company called raise labs that I sold a couple of years ago and just bashing about startups entrepreneurship. So you're trying to figure out what your next step is in life basically yeah. Probably between ventures I'm doing a lot of angel investing right now advising startups. So working with entrepreneurs, helping them kind of make their dreams a reality and starting to think about what my Next endeavor might be Dutch. If you're investing companies must sound like things went well for company ended up selling it. Yeah. We had a successful business that we grew and we sold the business in late twenty seventeen, which was a great result for everyone I ended up staying on with the company for a couple of years as the head of innovation and then late last year decided to ways start about what's next. So you said your last company was called raise labs Yep Yep so has your name in it right? Or is he still is kind of weird to have your last name in a company, and now you're no longer part of the company. The company post acquisition kind of change names, and so became a division of the acquiring company, and so that was fine. It was a little weird. But I kind of think about the long history of entrepreneurs that had the company name as incorporated in what it was computer being one where Dow wasn't part of that company. Disney's longer part of Disney maybe A. Little strange I but it's been a long time. So you're saying raise labs is going to be the next Disney del now now I'm just saying that it's not weird for me that I'm no longer at that company it was kind of my baby I grew it for thirteen years in successful, and again I'm starting to think about what's next is just a joke. I get it a try. We understand you sold your company that you work there for a little bit, and now you're off trying to figure out what your next stepping stone is. But can you tell us a little bit more about like what company was or what your background is because I don't think we've understood that part sheriff so got started in software studied computer science in college at Tufts University and got a job initially at Microsoft working at Redmond on the Windows XP, operating system, and so I kind of cut my teeth on software and user experience and ended up starting a business around consulting in the software space. So I would help companies with user experience design. And building web applications as well, and we were doing that type of consulting right around the time when the IPHONE was unveiled in. So in two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine, when Steve, jobs announced the iphone in the APP store that came along with kind of the business to focusing on mobile APPs in. So we built very first mobile APP that we launched was for a company called run keeper, and so they hired us to design build a mobile APP that was a first product that we developed and designed and ended up being very successful, and so we kinda pivoted our services consulting business building more APPs, and so we work with lots of both local companies in the Boston. Companies like Rula and DOT com. But then we moved started doing work for many national brands or should five hundred companies. That's what really led to the growth of the company. We opened California office in Oakland, grew the team to seventy eight people search just summarize it make it easier and then we'll go back more detailed you worked for Microsoft for three or four years, and then you basically end up starting your own. Consulting Company and then there seems like you're helping people make mobile APP stores at different types of APPS. That's right. We started with general types of applications. But then with the launch agai phone, we really switched into focusing on mobile applications. From that, you're just helping other people develop their own mobile APPs in the Boston area. That's right. WE HELP NUMBER COMPANIES DEVELOPING MOBILE APPS in the Boston area and then more Ashley as well. Okay. Maybe it's best if we start off playing in two thousand one is basically when you started results slobs, we talked about that transition from being an employee at Microsoft and then going out on your own. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. How old were you? When you made a transition? I was probably a twenty, three, twenty, four, her inside left Microsoft is one of the lowest points for May cause. I was actually fired from Microsoft for not necessarily falling in line which I think is maybe typical. For entrepreneurs. We don't necessarily like to do what we're told. We kind of pave our own way didn't really fit in at Microsoft had a larger vision for what I thought. Software should be and I kinda got in the way and so it was low below point for me and I kind of started developing some my own software and kind of doing the startup thinning started blogging, writing some my thoughts down, and that's really what kind of led me to start my own company as well. So you told them, you wanted to develop two thousand and they're still doing windows XP is out with the deals. Well, we launched Windows XP actually pretty large SAS and the team started working on the next operating system, which at the time was what ended up becoming windows Vista. That's why you didn't phone line. Yet, there's a bunch of stuff that this is wrong. The thing about Windows xp that I think made a success was that there was a lot of grounding in user experience, a lot of vision in terms of what was important for that particular product in when the team started on Windows Vista all of that was absent. It was just like let's ship in other product. Let's throw a bunch of features in it and so I kind. Of put my hand is like we're doing it wrong. We need to stop we need to reevaluate division in as a twenty something reporting to people who are time were significantly more tenured at the company. They didn't want to hear that I was shown the door which was okay for me as ended up being at the time it felt really awful but ended up being okay to tell us about it was right after the dot com crash. It was a little after the DOT COM crash. So I left Microsoft to end the two, thousand one I still had some money from Microsoft because the company did duality did have some stock options and so essentially took all that money in. That was my kind of start up money to start my software business in. So I was doing some Myron shareware product software products that I've been doing some light consulting and kind of getting my feet wet in that space in learning about entrepreneurship I never went to. Business School, I never learned of the basics of finance accounting really didn't know some of that. So I was literally in the library reading books on how to do this stuff and that was part of my time. In part of the time I was trying to hustle find clients who would listen to my opinion alumnae help them with how to do design, how to do use your experience when you were Microsoft was off in Boston or did you move back to Boston like can you tell us about the locations? Yeah I was living in Seattle that's where Microsoft was grown up in the Greater Boston area in a suburb called Newton I'd moved out to Seattle for a number of years, and then after leaving Microsoft ended up, moving back to the Boston area. Able to sleep in Seattle, I was occasionally sleepless in Seattle but occasionally, I got some sleep. What was it work life there at Microsoft is everyone hustlers was more like a nine to five. Is definitely a lot of work. They hire a lot of folks who are right out of college and you're centrally working all the time. There's no other way to put it. You're surrounded by people who are your age, and so it's very collegial atmosphere. You're having dinner with everybody you're also working with coming in you're working all light. You're coding all night, the bringing dinner for you and you wake up the next morning you do it again. So it was a lot of work is definitely high energy, and so I enjoyed it, there's a lot of. Positive things about the Microsoft engineering culture in actually some of the things that I learned about had a higher some of the best engineers in the world I carry that forward into the company that I started I wanted to make sure when I'm starting a business that I'm hiring some of the best people in the world and keeping those standards high and I think ultimately when starting any types of businesses, it's really about the people and so incredibly grateful for Microsoft, for teaching me how to hire properly because having a high bar for talent is so critically important. Hopefully, the helped I, feel like I came at least a little bit more hopeful deandre. No I do think it helps them like I said it's like going to see a psychiatrist talking about your problems in life you're like we're talking with you about. Brown's business start up. So I mean when we both we are something else will enter our brains and and we're like, okay yeah, there it is. But I. Should a doctor? You know I'm still going to get paid but I realized that if I make a twenty or thirty thousand dollar sale, I might only get fifteen thousand. I wish I had. If I talked to a year ago because part of the reason, I get suckered into salary in these people they're like I have to pay my bills. I wish I had known about that. I can't believe. No. One's like ever said that to me because. That's how I should be structuring everything. So that's awesome. That's exactly what I should have been doing. In fire was like harder. Maybe I don't know if you consider them quote unquote friends but at least it's like a lifestyle where people you're hanging out with was that the hardest part like having did not be around these people that you've grown up with out of college. Now I still keep in touch with bunch of folks who are Microsoft as most of them ended up leaving in either starting their own companies are joining in other startups as well, and so friends are friends in a workers were you're young you equate the two or it's easy to equate the two but longer term relationships at last that. Great but I mean if they ended up putting, you mentioned at the time if those dealing people you're hanging out with and then you have to go back to Boston, I don't know you said it was kind of devastating time just trying to figure out if it was just more than losing the job of his losing that Camaraderie or at least temporarily now, I didn't lose the relationships even there like I, stayed in touch with a bunch of folks. We'd still go up parties in events and things like that looks good. My friend Circle Certainly, they knew I wasn't a bad person I didn't do anything wrong and. That's kind of like the thing when you're young if you have a job transition show right now a lot of folks are out of work because of what's going on in the economy and not your fault you kind of pick up learn from it. You hit it you figure out what the next thing is and so when you make this transition, are you excited to go back to Boston I? Mean are you living with your family when you're going to go start your own new business here? I did for a little bit. Yes right. Came Back to Boston my parents are from the area so I lived with. Them for a little bit got my own condo and got my own place Microsoft money ran out and so I actually ended up getting a day job in Boston, for a little bit in that was allowed me to kind of pay the bills pay the rent, that sort of thing, and then at night I would continue to work on my startup and continue to recommend software in. So I believe in starting a business as a side hustle that gives you a lot of security. It allows you to have the financial security of having a day job while you're continuing to debate your idea for whatever your company is. What was Your Day job? So I was user experience user interface, architect, small software company in Massachusetts where I would come in and help them design their software to be easier to use. So again, using some of the things I had learned at Microsoft. About user experience, user interface design, and Best Practices to apply that to more an enterprise software product in that kind of again gave me a little bit of financial security allowed me to continue to incubate my startup. So I think I finally figured out what you bet you I means does this mean user? Oh. Yeah. I don't think it by a new. Exit shouldn't be you. You I I know I. Actually. It's funny. As part of my transition I've been making youtube videos on entrepreneurship and design in one of my videos on the difference between you are user interface and you ax user experience but I, didn't cover wise it an axe that doesn't make any sense. Yeah, you'll have to figure that out and put a youtube video I when you're saying you're doing your side startup. So what's the difference you developing your own software or you're doing something for clients on the side I was doing buffs sides -veloping some mild software and I had a couple of programs in the photography space and also had some clients that was helping with their user interface in their design problems. It was easy to find those clients I mean, did you have passion for photography to be in the space I guess as your side business? I loved software, and so my passion is for technology, and so I love coding I love solving design problems finding clients is a very different thing and so that ended up exercising new part of my brain whether it was going online searching for people who are searching for designers searching for that type of work, and so it was definitely a learning process to learn about all these skills for business both sales marketing customer acquisition that I really didn't know before I started. I guess you need. You're still in your early to mid twenties at this point right Yep. So what's your lifestyle like? It sounds like you're on a computer all day. If you're at work doing you stuff, you're saying it seems that home doing your software company making your own software and then working on client software you're just doing this nonstop seven days a week or what's her lifestyle? Yeah meantime can be wired as a night owl so I tend to work late into the am or early into the Harry put it the time does that mean? I'm curious usually two am when I am I would work during the day at, go hang out with friends or go outside I do love a bunch of outdoor sports whether it's snowboarding or sailing or things like that. But then yeah, I, like to stay up at night and I'd be coating. My projects are designing interfaces or writing blog posts or creating videos I enjoy making stuff. So for me, it doesn't really feel like work and kind. Of, disappear into the creative process your day job. How long did you have that? Before you decided good time with your side business as lobster I probably did did that for eight to ten months and then I had enough traction with raise labs is that I knew I had clients I knew was close to the number that I needed to cover my monthly expenses. It wasn't quite there. So I knew I would continue to lose of money for a couple of months but I had enough savings that I can really make the jump into raise labs be able to do that full-time and really as soon as. I did that as able to find more clients and kind of backfill the work that I needed to really be able to do it with confidence into the first year listen your first you're going fulltime. How much did you end up extras like making it was peanuts I mean I actually look a couple years ago and it was maybe twenty grand thirty grand. It was not a lot of money. It was literally just covering living expenses in food. I wasn't saving anything by it was enough for me really to have my own thing I would work out of a starbucks or a Pete's coffee you're in. Boston right Yep so not Dunkin donuts Dunkin doesn't really have the down atmosphere I. Agree. I. Just knew the Boston People Love Dunkin donuts for starbucks. Yeah. It's funny. starbucks used to be a sit down place but starbucks move to the get your coffee and get out as well. The new kind of coffee sit down places Cafe Nero like none of the other places want you to hang around. They just want you to get your expensive coffee and leave. But at the time starbucks was coming sit down Dunkin's never been the come in sit down place. So I I get a coffee, get a muffin or something. there. So I didn't have any office expenses didn't have any overhead of myself, and so it was not a lot of money at first like I said, maybe twenty thirty grand the first year but it allowed me to cover my rent. It allowed me to kind of make progress build a little bit of reputation and I think that's the key. When starting a business, you don't really have A. Reputation people don't know who you are. You don't have a brand, and so you have to build that with your clientele with the people who are doing work with as you start to do that, you build a reputation, those clients a they come back for more work and they're like, Hey, you did a great job. Can you do this thing but then when their friends or their network ask them Who did your website or who helped you with them Oh black or who helped you do Xyz they start making referrals and that's really when the business started to take off until you're working starbucks and again, I just wanted to reemphasize in case has been to Boston. It's ridiculous how many Dunkin donuts are right I mean it's like every block. Yeah we have one every other block. Yeah. Exactly. Every couple of blocks it's ridiculous and then when you're saying with the sit down thing I. Agree with you all do kick you out now because I've tried to do that, switch it up, sometimes get out the house because I work from home and then Pinera used to be a place that you could do that and then you can't. Do that anymore because they only give you one megabyte speed, which is ridiculous. They obviously don't want you to be there if you're giving me one megabyte speed. So that first year even though maybe you're saying twenty or thirty, k. you end up making, do you think you'll for all your happier then when your at Microsoft because you had your own business and could do whatever you wanted. The couple of years were I mean it's a lot of working. You definitely question whether you're making the right decision 'cause I certainly could have either a joined another startup or onto work at facebook or Google like a lot of friends did and so you're not quite sure it's not a lot of money and so I think at the time, it was definitely am I doing the right thing of not quite sure. But as you start to get traction as you start to increase that reputation and certainly for me was when I started to hire my first employees that I started to feel like, okay I'm turning a corner like this is going the way I wanted to. Thank you for admitting that seems a lot of people even the first couple of years if you're not making quite as much money as you want or whatever just like you do question yourself. So anyone who's in that position now it's all right I mean could you just walk us through? That could maybe help people in that mindset 'cause I mean, I, even think about that with the podcast sometimes I'm like this is worth it Emmitt dealing into. Like why should I go back to doing what I was doing because was making more money doing like just talk to that if you don't mind for a little bit. Yeah. I think you're starting your own thing you Kinda have to understand why or doing it and I think if you're doing it for financial independence or or that in the short term, that's probably not the best why it's. Not Going to give you the fire in the energy to fueling long-term. But if you really believe in the vision of your company, the things that you're doing, it's GonNa give you independence in terms of your schedule and how you do things it's going to give you independence trips of your values and what you choose to do that's going to give you the fuel energy to keep going like. Microsoft I knew I would have a really hard time having a boss again because if I ever got into the situation where we weren't arguing about right or wrong arguing about values and when you run your own business, you get to determine the values of the business. You determine the priority and I think that's the thing that give me energy. It was like to decide. It's different because you're working in smaller problems as a startup you're not working on a product that could be like. Hey three, hundred million people are gonNA use the tomorrow you're working on something where you're like, hey, maybe I can help twenty people or fifty people and it's a different type of mindset but if you're doing it for yourself if you're doing it for the right reasons, then will give you that energy to last through those hardest years in the first couple of years definitely really tough because you're fighting all of those both internal obstacles of your own ego in your own direction where you're going. McGregor I believe. So hopefully, that helps if you stop believing then you're definitely screwed. All. Right. So after the first year again, not making much money seems like goes like that for the next couple of years. Yeah I mean it grew steadily. So he was maybe twenty thirty and then it was already fifty. Then it's starting to feel a little more comfortable like I said at a certain point we had enough business that I could do it all and. So I started to hire contractors at the time. Initially, the contractors were literally coming into my condo and working it was kind of awkward and as like okay graduated to like needing office and so I. Got my first office, which was maybe twenty by twenty is a tiny little office but it was enough to put a couple of desks in a couple of computers and. Off to the races was that exciting, it was exciting. It was like I remember getting the first office and figuring out the whole Leeson how am I gonNa do this and actually I'll tell a story I remember I had this tiny office and whenever you're at a certain stage of business, you're always thinking about the next stage and I think that's Natural like it's hard in a doing card entrepreneurs to take a breath and be like celebrate the progress that you have done. But I remember sitting in this tiny office in even back. Then I was like I know this is a tiny office and I had my eye on the next office that would be bigger and better and greater could actually accommodate. A couple more employees in a couple of more things that I wanted I remember these two. I. Think they were freshmen in college kids. They came to talk to me and they wanted advice on entrepreneurship and they came to see my tiny little office and they looked at it in they're like, wow, this is amazing. You made it and I was. Like, they left a had to reflect on that because each step that you make it's hard. You don't realize the progress that you have made when you get to that next step, you're always looking at well, what's next after that and I think it's important that you do make progress sometimes it happens slowly but it is important to stop and recognize that. Makes me reflect even to what you said like in your first year how many people would have had the balls from Microsoft to start their own company and even though you've made probably way less doing your own company like some people that you worked with might have been like, wow, look he's made it. He can do what he wants when he wants even if you make less money and I think that's true. You only see your own picture. You only see your own kind of it's the grass is always greener people are always looking at. You and He's starting a company. Meanwhile, you're running the company or like Oh my God what am I doing and oftentimes like I would have imposter syndrome, right? What right do I have to do this? Do I really know what I'm doing you're always kind of a learning from mistakes through you know what you need to do, and then trying to jump to whatever that next level of business might be when he signed that first office lease a curious like how much runway did you have as far as in your bank account I mean there. A good way to think about are just curious for you. Maybe at other people are thinking the same thing. It wasn't a ton like I knew that I could cover my own expenses, my own salary plus the time I think I had one employee in one contractor in size like I know I have enough to pay myself to pay the contractor in to pay rent for, and it wasn't a time maybe three months four months. I had enough visibility into the cycles of when the clients come in and how long that takes to have some. Sense of like, I, think I'll be okay and again at the time I don't remember what the least commitment was probably a three year lease with an extension but it ends up being at the time maybe a thousand or fifteen hundred dollars a month, and so I was like I think I can pull it off and as the CEO you can always dial down your own salary, which I was able to do at the time because I knew how to live on Thirty K. Twenty K. so I was like, okay if I need a dial it. Down I can you have kind of levers but you're always used expression over your skis. You're like a little bit extended and you're like, oh. My God. This is really hard. But then as soon as you make that jump six months, eight months you're like Oh. This is comfortable I always tell entrepreneurs that if you're completely comfortable, you've probably waited too long. You need to be a little bit uncomfortable about the decisions that you're making the leaps that you're making whether it's hiring or growth or other types of investment if you're completely comfortable man you're. Probably going a little bit too slow. You should be taking calculated risks again whether it's rent or hiring it's not a bet, the company type decision but you're always want to be a little bit ahead of where you feel comfortable that allows you to grow yourself. You would've waited for five years runway that might have been a little too late. You're saying, yeah, four every month that you wait is one month that you're not executed on the thing you actually want to do. So again, you have to keep those balances in mind obviously if things went. Terribly south and all the sudden. You don't have any clients you don't have were than you have to make not fun decisions. Every CEO goes through a period where all of a sudden they overextended and the either need to downsize or have to fire someone or have a series of layoffs or contract, and those are incredibly painful but they're also learning process for entrepreneurship. We're probably about two thousand five when he got your first lease, I just WanNa make sure the timekeeper. Yeah. Thereabouts probably two, thousand, four, two, thousand, five, we've got I lease first couple. Employees and we kind of grew progressively. This was again two, thousand five was pre mobile, and so we were still building some of her own software products in selling shareware we were trying to build some photo software applications that are a little more sophisticated. We were exploring Ventura Financing for some of the ideas that we were building as well in learning about that space as well. But ultimately, like our tipping point was when the iphone was launched, we started to build apps and that's really where we saw a lot of momentum appear in the photoshop stuff. With photos. So did you like developed Microsoft paint? Were you that? Guy. Now. I still use that by the way Microsoft paint was great. So Microsoft, I worked on a photo feature called the photo printing wizard in. So in x p one of the things we found through research in talking to a lot of consumers was that people wanted to print their photos on surprisingly and it was actually very difficult to print photos in windows ninety five because if you open the mob paint. The wrong sizes if you opened up a word, it kind of print with all sorts of weird margins, and so we built a photo tool in XP, and after I left Microsoft ahead, all sorts of ideas for other things you could do with photography digital photography was just starting to blossom, and so I built photo sharing APP called Magic Gallery, which is moderately successful for shareware it sold maybe five hundred thousand dollars a month which at the time was definitely supplementing a lot of the income in we explored whether shareware could be a more central part. Of the business it ended up being really difficult to make money on desktop software, and that's why we ended up pivoting to some of the other stuff we ended up doing but I was joking around about Microsoft paint because I'm like there has to be some photo thing. It seems like you're going along these lines because you had some past experience with it and so again, back into your story gets two, thousand, sixteen, thousand, seven, zero, one started developing these APPs for your business. The iphone was introduced I think two, thousand, eight, we were at that time. Working mostly on web sites for clients. So helping companies, design websites, web applications, and when the APP store was announced, that's when we really said like let's try building a mobile application for a client and I when we worked on like I said was run keeper the founder CEO initially approach is about building a website and we pitched him to build a mobile APP instead, and so that was the first mobile application had GPS tracking on it, and so we Kinda took a bet that the iphone three g would have GPS chip prior iphones didn't have a GPS chip, but we said it the next IPHONE HAS GPS chip. This could be the first GPS tracking running APP to be in that space beating Nike and beating a bunch of other companies to the punch and the founder agreed he wanted to take the leap with us, and so we built that first step in help his company be incredibly successful. His company got acquired several years ago by a six and is still a very successful running fitness APP and helped cement our reputation as an APP developers. Well, did he give you a big? Thank you. Yes. been with mutual results. I, mean I'm not even a runner at all and I think I've heard run keeper as an APP and like think maybe even though as back Dander I don't know but I've definitely heard the name even from a non runner like if I know about it and it's something. Yeah it was I think in the top of the APP store charts for a long time definitely helped cement our. Reputation early days of the APP store, and as I was saying earlier like in the early days of any fielder niche, you're really trying to build that reputation build at recognize ability of what you do in the value that you bring, and that definitely helped cement our reputation in terms of ability to build quality applications. So still things sounds like everything's going your about seventy eight years into your company everything's still going up. To the right? Yeah and it was slow right I think when people say like, oh. Yeah. I built a company in Seoul that people think it's switching you flick it in Oh. Amazing. But it took a long time from INC in two, thousand, three, two, thousand, one and two was kind of hustle business, and then I started to get more serious about it. Two thousand four two, thousand five as we started to grow and get employees. But then we really didn't have that tipping point until the iphone hit in two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine, where we really started to see inflection were growing significantly faster because more and more companies are coming to US asking for our mobile APP experience mobile applications that sort of thing. It's tough. But that's to a podcast that goes to like thirty thousand people. So it's just like there's so many people who listen and don't do anything you know what I'm saying, I. WanNa give you credit for what you're doing because I'm sure there are a lot of people listening but I was curious how many people are paying I mean for me my dad even said Bryn y you pay in this guy. What was he giving I said it's I want him to keep going. That's why I'm paying you know and I do believe in pay it forward. It's not a lot of money and I can do the math. And meeting you hey, Sammy out. Cool thanks for joining that call on Friday. Problem. Thanks to you for having a awesome podcast and asking do you charge for this or how does it work? You just want to help members or? Just want to help you free call. Okay well. It's been a while maybe reemphasize it, which means probably one episode for anyone who's listening, but we've talked about basically five six years of you working full-time in about fifteen minutes. So you got envision that we greg hardy a night owl and I imagine even in its twenty years even more of a night owl like how many hours you actually put in every single day in this first five or six years for it to finally get to it somewhat tipping point or faster celebration. Point if you will. Yeah, absolutely, it's a lot of work and that's why for anyone thinking about starting a company, you really have to be in it for the long haul and you really have to be excited and passionate about the things that you're doing. Otherwise you're just going to burn yourself out. So what point should we jump to in the next part of your story here probably growth and then pivot to wise old y how that process went might be interesting because he actually. Sold in two thousand seventeen I sold in two thousand seventeen. Yeah. Okay. Over those ten years are there any other points you said you had a fire people and whatnot so I'm trying to see if there's any downturns because again even though you wanted to reemphasize which I appreciate it still growth, but a super slow growth. But what's been the decline the issues over the last seventeen years it I'll kind of give you the next bet would be like we built some the first. Mobile APPS WE started to get more and more requests for building products, and that's really where we saw the growth phase of the company where we would grow fifty percent year over year. It was just really rapid. We went from four to eight people sixteen people to thirty people insert every year we're just growing where blowing out our office running out of space to needing to get a new lease in growing for additional space when we got to some around thirty people you're starting to. Learn new ways to run a business because the things that used to work in a sixteen person company don't really work in a twenty five person company, and so it's just learning how to put in some of the management structure. Some of the operational bits to have the company be effective I brought in some leadership from outside the company hired a co a to help me operationally he taught me a ton about how to run a business in how to run the financials in. Helped us get to the next stage. We ended up opening California office, which was really exciting in Oakland, and again that taught me a bunch of `bout both remote work in had manage in deal with company that's operating on both coasts. Every step was a learning challenge and is exciting as well like we were flying to all sorts of exciting clients in very well recognized brands and helping them think about their mobile application experienced in their customers in at that point you're starting to. See like, Hey, wouldn't we launch an APP maybe a million or a couple of million people use that APP, and so it's just very exciting to be working on that type of stuff in than, of course, having your brand, your company, the thing that you started associated with that. So it's just a lot of fun as we grew to fifty sixty people the business started to shift again, and again each time you grow, you start to shift, learn new things and so it started. To be operationally challenging to maintain revenue consistently for long periods of time, and so this was the area probably for me of a lot of personal stress because every month you're doing a million dollars of business, and if you miss that million dollar mark, there's a lot of people depending on you and so again, completely different animal in terms of operations in terms of how do you run that business? How do you give yourself the predictability that you can continue to grow without causing undue Stress the sounds like things got stressful unless eventually what you ended up on. Yeah. So around twenty sixteen things started to definitely to put a toll on me personally just because we had a couple slow quarters couple bad months, and we had to do some downsizing with layoffs and it's just incredibly hard I mean we got through that but it was challenging for May. I was trying to figure out how to make the jump to the next size company in. So like I said. We were sixty seventy people in each time. The company changes size and shape. You need to operationally change something about how you run it as I started to think about what takes the company from sixty to call it a hundred and twenty. One of things I started to realize as thinking about how to go from sixty to one hundred twenty people was that we would need to fundamentally change how we thought about the business. It was very difficult to build the company that large that. was solely focused on mobile. We really thought that we needed to diversify from mobile to being more of a full service design and Development Agency able to do both web mobile back end and front end, and so we started to explore a couple of things both acquisitions. Could we acquire small web agencies to complement our skills and we tried to do a couple of those acquisitions and they weren't particularly successful they were okay. But they really didn't change reputation they didn't position us the. Way We wanted, and so we ultimately decided that we needed to weren't going to be able to acquire someone to complement us in that way that we should explore being acquired to create that more of a full-service product offering you were saying that you had to get like a million bucks a month and whatnot aiming I can understand why that could be useful to but with your business model, it seems like there was no reoccurring revenue that it just taken clients was that it as. Well Yeah, if you have recurring revenues easier to predict just wondering how you actually end up making money if there's just do client services or anything else here. Yeah. It's primarily client services, and so it's not a fast business revenue isn't recurring in that someone subscribes in pays monthly. We did have enough business that you can predict on a percentage basis. You know that fifty sixty percent of your clients will renew year-over-year end. So you have some predictability in the business but apart from. That sixty percent. There's still a lot of variability in the business as well, and so a lot of that was causing me stress around twenty sixteen. So how about Greg personally did you ever get married until down? Yes. I got married two beautiful daughters are eight twelve. That's all good in that department and Obviously as an entrepreneur, you have to kind of balance how much time you're spending on your company and making sure you're not completely forgetting about family time as well and so trying. To balance and keep those things in check is important to get your obviously stress out. So personally just dealing with yourself, that's an issue but I mean like time wise was is still sucking up a lot of time. So you're like, Hey, I've got a family seems like you've done well enough of these financially or personally that like you know runs a point that I'm not GonNa keep working sixty seventy hours whatever hours a week other spending time with my family. Yeah, I think. That's the challenge of entrepreneurship as well like I think entrepreneurs are driven by work and actually get a lot of energy from that, and so it is helpful to disconnect and try to balance. But definitely, a challenge for entrepreneurs wired that way I'll Sam still a night owl. So that's still something that gives me energy to create can have that quiet time to think and create and rights but I, think everyone's spending a lot more time with the family these days not necessarily by choice. 'cause they love them that much more maybe government has forced them. But yeah, hopefully you know makes everyone realize like it's not all work all the time is good to me I always find when things like this happen in life or whatnot it helps you re evaluate what you're doing and while you're doing it and if you want to keep doing it strip. We end up selling the business and you totally get out or walk assume transition of like how that worked out for you. Yes. So we started looking for a potential acquirer around twenty sixteen in that entire process took a little over a year and so we ended up finding a company called right point that acquired us. They were also in the service agency. Space Lot of the people I hired are still at right point, and so if listeners are looking for a design agency, they can definitely go check them out but we took a long time looking for a company that shared our vision and values. CEO of right point was aligned with me in terms of some things that were important. Right point. Can you disability on? One looks for the right people share. It's R. H. T. point. Okay. Cool. I to make sure wasn't like right aide Rit or anything like that. See I ended up being pretty mentally aligned with the CEO in terms of his vision of the company and I thought it would be good Stewart vision and values and people have raised absence. So we ended up that transition that was end of twenty seventeen, and so I ended up staying on with the firm as the head of innovation for about two years in. So it allowed me personally to kind of distress from the operational side of the business in worrying about payroll and worrying about kind of operations in. Our and all the other things that go into running a business and move things that I used to think about when I started the business, which were innovation and technology and really change lives through the technology that we built. Now that you've got out, are you set for life? Financially set for life, which is Great. Doesn't mean you want to be done with. Now, it's funny. I think it causes you to reflect on where you WANNA spend your time have never been particularly financially motivated meaning that like I don't need a lot end up spending a lotta time building software and designing things in the things I like to do outdoors whether it's sailing or snowboarding they're not exorbitantly expensive. I, don't intend to buy a yacht or anything of that nature, and so it's like you don't need a lot to be happy and so now kind of thinking about well, how do I give back whether it's through entrepreneurship or Angel Investing and help others? Build impactful software. So you prefer snowboarding or skiing I was one of the very first snowboarders on the mountain I had a old Craig Kelly Burton people would come up to me and say what the heck is that thing and I just loved it I. Believe he is so much harder than ski and I mean I don't know if it took you or maybe you're just great at it read the first time but I know when I tried to do it, it's just different. So I topped both my daughters to snowboard and the key about snowboarding is that unskilled like you can. Strap on a pair of skis in your instant beginner right like they'll teach you how to do pizza slices and French fries and like you can go down a basic mountain on skis on a snowboard you step into a snowboard and you're not even a beginner like you're nothing for like three days like you're just on the ground. But as soon as you kind of get that, you instantly go from like you're on the ground and your nothing to very quickly become an intermediate whereas on skis even though you're beginning at takes you years to become intermediate and even more years to. Become advanced. So just very different learning curves but love the sport it's a blast to get outside and Hobson runs the inspiration for future snowboarders. So we cover it all on this podcast. Isn't that just business greg that's right. Well I'm sure you could draw an analogy on actually here's the analogy to snowboarding when you're starting a business, you're on the ground like you're not making any progress in it takes a couple of years to get going but once you get going once you find that inflection point e can really become expert fast perfect I'm glad you came up with the analogy. Trying to Mike Okay. But it makes perfect sense. Right on the snowboard said if y'all haven't done it before you're going to bust. Your ass. Said three days. 'CAUSE I try for day and kind of do it. I'm it's just so much easier to ski them to go back to doing that I. Mean I'm in Florida. So I don't have a lot of slips around here. So I'll usually have a couple of days when I go somewhere to ski you know. So thank you for sharing the story I. Guess if people wanted to follow you on what your plans are here. Now, the of the Vision for it I know you said you're experimenting with Youtube or what else is right now, people can find me on twitter at she raise. I'm starting to make youtube videos to explore a new platform for content like when I first started my business spent a Lotta time blogging blogging seems to. Be kind of dead because you can't follow people easily on blogs anymore, and so I'm learning about youtube as a way to reach people interested in entrepreneurship design and engineering, and starting to think about what my next business might be. Again, fill exploring a broad set of different ideas in ways to do that. But would love to connect with folks interested in those types of things in chat with them about their ideas is the best to do via twitter or is there somewhere else that maybe they could email you to? Yet, what is usually the best way? I also have a website Greg Reyes dot com, and so they can find on there. There's a contact arm if they want to reach out and blogs are dead because they don't know how to read anymore it seems great. Well, I think it's discovery. Google is the main discovery engine for so many things and it used to be that you could subscribe to blogs with our assassinated an RSS readers in all of that went away the last ten years and so a few level blog it's really hard to kind of stay connected with it. Knicks perfect sense and know exactly what you're saying where they had the RSS. Reader, not that ever subscribed to blog via that route. But yeah, you'd have to remember to good rigs website every day now eight if you really wanted to read a blog and no one's going to do that and so it's a whole new kind of paradigm shift for content creators and I guess for you I think it's important for everyone daughter seeing too. I mean, you seems like you've had a successful business obviously and you're trying to explore and figure out what you want to do next and it's worth taking the time it's like starting a business making sure. You, WANNA. Do it and maybe messing around with a couple of different things before you go guns blazing to do your next thing is that what you kinda suggest? Yeah absolutely. I think there's no shortage of ideas like I see lots of entrepreneurs who come to me and they're like, Oh, I have this great idea but they haven't really a time to think through the pros and cons of the ideas they haven't evaluated against other ideas and they haven't figured out how they might execute it in a way that would separate them from others and I think it's important to take the time to really get deep into those ideas really understand them some. Ideas have running lists. I have a spreadsheet of a bunch of ideas that I think could be interesting for companies have come up to thirty something ideas and it's the ones that have come back to over and over again that I'm like oh? Okay. Maybe there's something really there but there's another twenty, five thirty they don't come back to in. So it's the ones that really kind of mental issue that you have to scratch they keep coming back. Okay. There's something there and those ideas I keep talking about them with folks and so if I think something's a good idea, I'll kind of add it with a bunch of other smart people who i. Know and be like, what am I missing? Why is this a bad idea? What would you do different like and to try to really suss out whether it's just an idea or whether it could be a great business while I look forward to vetting these ideas with you in a couple of minutes off. Yeah. But thank you, Greg for joining us and any last words of wisdom before we get off here. Now I think if you're an entrepreneur and looking to get started or looking to start a business, you know you just have to get over your fear get into the mindset of entrepreneurship, reduce the risk of failing start to make things.

Beyond Meat surges after 1st earnings, Cronos cannabis 10% surge, and Barnes & Noble is about to be bought

"The. Nick, this is Jack and this is snacks daily. It is the last day of the week Friday, June, seventh Jack what are we barely? Teaboy TBO y the best one. Spell it out. Now markets overall fuel really sharp. They rose on word, the US may delay tariffs on Mexico, fire, put out three wonderful stories. You got jacked this mixed today. I'm really feeling this mix kick things off. With beyond me it had its first earnings report since its last month. We've gotta talk about. It's other I it's first mover advantage. Second store Barnes and noble, surged thirty percent on word. It's about to be acquired we're going to look at everything that went wrong with his turn around strategy, which was more than one thing, third, and final story Cronos Canadian cannabis surged by ten percent on Wednesday. So we die very nice into its strategy, which is heavy on brand. I got two words that are going to explain this whole thing, spinach, and co that is quite let that sink in now check by the way. So we used to live together. Now in that time since we haven't lived together Jack and I have not discussed are smoothie touts. Are you mango guy? No. No, no not. Huge mango guy. I like to knock out all of my like seven vegetable servings with one smooth it. We're talking like kale. Spinach, everything. It's always healthy. When the thing you're trying to consume ninety percent things. You don't wanna consume exactly ripping off the bandit. Turns out John jurors one of our favorites is dropping juice from the name. This is like finding out fetch isn't happening apparently juice has become a really bad word. Get this. We joked inside next. I little deeper, apparently in two thousand twelve Americans drink up a hefty four billion gallons of juice. And since then, our consumption is down by half a billion gallons, like three point five juices out note juice. Jumba juice has apparently our friends over there becomes scared of the word use, so they're dropping the word Jews from the name, and they're adding smoothies and bowls as a tagline. But we think there should be more specific and go almond butter with cocoa nibs and coconut shapes. They're going to run out of nuts. At some point now. John juice for Knockin leave. You hanging. At snacks, day that we got in a little bit of advice for you. The real problem, your logo change that scary logo the smoothie tornado thing with multiple colors. It's actually stressful to look at smoothies, and tornadoes, not good synergies, not a good mix. Everyone listen to these keywords, and then what are through swords? Daily spoke to. Hamre food said candy, they don't reflect the views of robinhood family. Just so. Mended any securities. It's not a research report or investment advice Natta awkward sale of a security, next digestible business vigil financial LLC member. PC for our first story Barnes and noble. Stock just served thirty percent on credible reports that it's getting acquired now full disclosure here because we like a good disclosure. This is important, Nick, and I, we're big fans of books, we like books, we read books, we frequent books, we some of our best friends are books. It's true and Barnes and noble is the largest bookstore in the country. It's the source of like many first date as well. Very few second dates, I will say very true. Now let's talk about the buyer in this situation. It's called Elliott management. It's a hedge fund. It's a big fan of financial term sheets long walks on the beach, and it also has a big thing for books. So it's into books it recently got really into books because it bought Waterstones. Yes. Which is the Barnes and noble of the United Kingdom. In case you're wondering what's up with Barnes and noble, basically, this bookstore chain, put itself out on the market last fall. And it's been looking for suitors these seventy eight. Eight year old Leonard regime, who is the chairman of Lonzo ball in owns nineteen percent of the shares. He was thinking about taken back as baby and owning the things straight up just bagging the thing up and bring it home. Now, if you don't know Rijo. You may wanna know this that he famously told Jeff Bezos, the CEO and founder of Amazon that Barnes and noble would crush Amazon when it opened its online store. Yeah. Perspective, here Barnes, and noble is only worth, like four hundred million dollars total as a company today. That's pretty discount. Now, there's one kind of core thing that a lot of people know about Barnes and noble, and that it's become fallen on hard times, basically, because of Amazon, clearly Amazon, starting in nineteen Ninety-six caused a lot of trouble and Barnes, and noble is still feeling it's closed ninety locations in the last seven years. Meanwhile Amazon, totally disrespectful. Move is opening new books. Twenty of them. That's what people know what you may not know and this is what fascinated us at snacks daily is that it's not just Amazon. That's hit and hurt on Barnes and noble. This is a bit of a feel-good story local. Bookstores are staging a major comeback in America. We're talking about like the bookseller on main street in your downtown. We're talking down the street, the place with a bunch of kids books in the window. They're all really nice. And when you walk in, if you talk to loudly people look at you in a weird way in two thousand seventeen that's the data we got we've got to work with it sales at independent bookstores were up two point six percent from the year before, and that trend has been going on for while while Barnes and nobles, clearly been falling local bookstores have been enjoying consistent growth, and it's got a few things going for him. First of all, you got the local taste that people like no your taste when you walk in. Right. You also got like somebody behind the counter you recognize you know, and you like, you know, the cashiers picks the books that the cashier recommends you read on the beach this summer, and then the other factor was fewer Americans are going to malls. And if you're not on the mall, you're less likely to run this, that Barnes and noble, and you're less likely to do a second date there. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over at Barnes and noble? There is no millennial formula to return around. Exactly Barnes and noble, tried pan. During to our demographic with a millennial formula at it pretty much failed at it wasn't epic pander. We're talking about. They're infamous concept stores, got they had like Instagram food. That was really expensive really fancy coffee, very expensive coffee, and then whining craft beer. We're talking like Williamsburg, stuff like the stuff that, you know, very high, seriously highbrow. And it also tried prior to that to become a tech company, creating its own tablet called the nook Nick, I haven't seen since the prisoner of Aska band few have now there's no formula for a retail turnaround, and Barnes, and noble has become a living proof of that, for our second story, Cronos's stock just surged on US hype and won rave review from critic at an investment Bank. A positive bullish critic now. This is a Canadian company that's like into the we'd game. Yeah. Their game plan to enter the United States is to hit CBD, I and we'd slash marijuana slash all the other nickname second. I'd love to see the giant white for deaf. Definitely have the headquarters that just as CD in big letters on the left and we'd in big letters on the right time about CBD CBD is in everything these days, it's pretty much the new kale in oils in creams. It's in beer, I just thought petfood pretty sure they served at John juice. It's everywhere so context for krona's the Canadian company. It's sales so far are ninety nine point six percent pure, Canadian very polite. Very only had seven million dollars Canadian dollars of sales last quarter. So it's a very small company, very key distinction because the is that the United States is a much bigger market for this Canadian company, except CBD legality in the United States is even more confusing than like, whether recreational marijuana is legal. Can you bring it on a plane? Can you take a nose to Oregon? No one knows this pet ticket. We can't help you by the way. No one has any idea now. That's why it was really interesting to hear the CEO of krona say he wants to expand quote unquote aggressively. Into the United States, exactly focused on CD the guy said that on Wednesday. And he said it with so much conviction that a Bank of America analyst gave a double upgrade to the stock of Rana. So he fancy in one year. The price target should be twenty seven dollars not seventeen. What it was before. And the reason why there's a big distinction there between we'd and CBD because CBD's potential is pretty wide here. It's an alternative to opioids for like one thing. Right. The US needs an alternative to opioids it could also be good for veterans suffering from mental health issues, and even if you're coming down with a good old, case of, you know, work burn out and makes for great shoulder work burn out a WHO recognized ailment, all of these things CBD can help you with that, soothing goodness. So Jack in a notice this story and we decided to jump in snack style. And when we did some more research on Cronos, we found some fascinating information in their investor presentations, man, go to the investor website of crowns and download there. Presentation, better yet invite a few friends over dim the lights put out some candles and tossed this investor presentation up on the chrome cast green cast this thing up with a projection screen if possible it is entertaining. So slide eight actually, I remember this page eight look at spinach J trona recreational marijuana brand. This is the actual name of the brand spinach. So Jack what is spinach offering to its offering farm to bowl for consumers, then don't take life too seriously? It is just the perfect kind of culminating of so many things right there. Jack the second brand. I thought this one was most fascinating cove. Cove is the premium marijuana brand. This is like the Evian to your aunts, Britta filter kind of situation. Yeah. You gotta have a snobby tone of voice when you're smoking cove, but it's offering premium we'd customers focused on every detail of the process. My favorite detail about this particular thing is that hand trend. That is. A quote it's hand trimmed. In fact, most of everything we just said was a quote from the slide deck. So check what's the takeaway for our buddies up north over? Krona's krona's knows the future of weed is in the brand. We'd could easily become a commodity is thing. Easily like a barrel of oil. You don't care what barrel of oil, you're buying. It's all the same stuff or like oats in the car other things that you don't care about brand that would be really bad for profits. If this thing became commoditised, so Cronos is differentiating. It's canvas by plying its brands to all of its products. Kronos, already owns like fifty percent of men, which is a retail store chain, that's trying to become the apple store of cannabis. So it's looking for like we'd brand and the slide deck. Shows you it's already created we'd brands to segment different customers. Spinach, and cove those could become logos commercial slogan. Spinach, and cove could become their own lifestyles. They got to invest in those brands because good brands can justify higher prices. And you know. What krona's wants? That's why Cronos knows the future of weed is the brand for our third and final story. This one's wild beyond meat stock just seventeen percent on its first earnings report, Nick, the stock is now four times, higher than its IPO price, which was last month. We're talking about the plant based meat company here, beyond me it is. It's practice. Magic. Let me put on my beyond me sales hat right now. This isn't an apron. This is a burger for people who want wanna burger, but are guilty when they eat burgers, this is a burger for people who want a cocktail party trips. They bring this thing out, say it's not meet, and then actually believes just made plant in somehow it bleeds. So this is the first earnings report since the IPO, and it crushed expectations intensive serving revenue growth. They got us going on forty million dollars of sales last quarter, which is triple from the same quarter of the year, before, now we looked at the sales, little further half, those sales are coming from restaurants where it served and half of them are from like the meat. I'll over the groceries half of their sales are in a grocery store and grocery stores are. Totally confused, where to put this thing, the veganism the meat ou-, who veggie meet, who knows now the company lost seven million dollars over the last quarter, but the stock surged seventeen percent on news about its earnings. Yeah. That's because profits aren't the most important thing right now. It's all about growth true. Now, interesting timing here because the meat industry, just happen to declare a religious war against alternative meets there are bills in the state house of Missouri and Nebraska, that are trying to ban the word meat if it's not coming from livestock, chicken or other live things. If this thing doesn't have is a mother, then you cannot call it meet down there. That's what they say. And Missouri and Nebraska now the me alternative growth story, some analysts are comparing it to electric vehicles, which we find fascinating. I liked the way they're rolling with this. Okay. So the reason why I you get the early adopters and the early adopters are the ones who see something and they're willing to spend because they can look like the first tesla was one hundred thousand dollars. And you know what the first alternate? Burgers, these things are costing twice as much as beef it case. You're wondering about early adopters in your life's think of that person who can't stop telling you about how much they love using that one thing, Google glass, a thousand times over there. Like to say they're part of this Lucien and not part of the problem. We all know that we all have been our lives. Now, the next key question, after the early adopters is when will this become mainstream? I'll tell you the price has to come down for it to become mainstream beyond me, CEO Ethan Brown says the price is going to be the same as meat for his alternative meats, like really soon within five years. Yeah, he says five years, and that's because he's going to build out more factories. He's gonna find more efficient ways to make p protein taste like beef, so on and so forth. Interestingly were already starting to see early signs of the mainstream of occasion of fake a widely read Wall Street Journal report couple days ago said sif teen percent of restaurants in the United States are already selling meatless burgers, and that's up from three percent the year before that's five times growth. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over? Beyond beyond me needs to defend its first mover advantage fiercely. Just this week Nestle decided to announce it's come up with something that's creatively, named the awesome burger, and it's fake meat burger and down, south Tyson chicken is working on a meat alternative as well. Jack and I have been going back and forth in this. We think this reminds ate a lot of what was going on with tesla. When it had its head start in the electric car biz tesla is fiercely defending its first mover advantage. Beyond me an impossible meats, are the two guys who have the first mover advantage here. Now, good news for beyond me. It has no legacy big meat, which is a scary. True story Tyson, whatever product it comes out with it's going to have to overcome its big chicken stigma that consumers know as and Nestle's already in bed with the big beef guys over in Missouri and Nebraska. Oh, you know, there and that's why beyond meat needs to defend its first mover advantage. Speaking of beyond me, this is Nick. And this is Jack and we both own shares, thanks speaking of Jack before the weekend. Can you do me a favor and with the takeaways for everyone over here? Certainly Barnes and noble tried the millennial playbook didn't work. And now it's getting acquired ironically, like the lease millennial move. It could ever have made Cronos is already building brand. So it's cannabis and CD don't become commodities snacks, original here, better brand, better profits, and beyond me. You had a great start. But now you need to defend your first mover advantage. The big guys Nestle Tyson or coming hard, and they like they know food really well, but they have big meat baggage. Now time for a snack today. This one tweeted into us by Talon Handa into. Actively named Melbourne Florida today. We talked to you about Barnes and noble yesterday. We talked to you about game. Stop turns out the two other shared history, there pad have crossed as my mom likes to say they used to be an item Barnes and noble actually acquired the predecessor to game, stop, which was called Babbit JR. In nineteen ninety nine then it changed into game, stop at took the company public with an IPO in two thousand two and then Barnes and noble sold the fifty nine percent stake in game. Stop in two thousand four talent. We love a good history over its next Ailey. Thanks for setting this wouldn't now a couple of great stories recovering in these snacks newsletter. We're talking Toyota and Subaru to Japanese electric slash hippie legends. They're teaming up for electric vehicles. And then remember we were talking about bird on the podcast yesterday there. Yeah. Well, apparently bird decided to a today, and just is about to make an acquisition of scoot, the scooter company that we actually screwed up. No jokers, knackers check. Tweet from yesterday. It explains everything we got it covered onto their Jack. What are you doing this week? At squeezing some, some orange juice and bone in chicken grilling right now, as we speak squeezes, of orange juice over here. Well snacker while you're barbecuing doing whatever going to do this weekend. Why don't you shout out mentioned your buddies next Dale? We think your buddies are gonna like snacks daily.

Many of us feel overwhelmed in business and in life. You know we're trying to take care of our health or trying to take care of our families. Were also trying to run a business as well as keep our sanity. It's not easy and in the midst of all this. We start to feel disappointed in ourselves because we may not feel like we're improving or as good as we should be. Maybe a we feel like we're not growing fast enough. Were disappointed at speed of our growth. Will this book Tom Connell and really looks into what's the difference between somebody who's great at something and somebody who's just okay and really? It's a mindset it's mentality and it's a percentage one percent to be exact. The Book Explores. Is it possible to get better results to have a better outcome? Even if you're just one percent better than yourself or somebody else at the end of the better is better right. The key here is being able to measure that one percent and the Kirs is trying to improve on a consistent basis so every time you do something or or measuring this result. They're getting one percent better so that we can look at your successes and see yes. I am getting better. I'm not discouraged. So I wanNA share with you. Some of the tips and some of the strategies to get this ball rolling that is shared in the book. The first one is very basic. But it's actually the one that gets it all started. A lot of people don't take action because they don't feel like they don't feel motivated they don't feel it's going to be worth it so trying harder or trying to get better is uphill battle but the first listen that shared in this book is actually reversing that law. You want motivation. You need to take action. It's not the other way around meaning. There's not something you should do feel motivated so therefore you can then take action. The action comes first and then you feel motivated and the more you get done. The more motivated you feel so this is why I recommend on the show so many times in this comes. From a lot of things I've learned from many books and many Different courses and lectures. I've attended but it's the idea that when you're approaching a project or a task a lot of us feel overwhelmed beautiful motivated and we don't know how to get started so you gotta start with the smallest easiest task possible to get the ball rolling. For example on my plate I have to analyze the last six months of our customer acquisition. This is an actual task of my to do. The project is overwhelming because they actually look into a lot of data. I gotta look into each individual customer. I got export all this information and then cross reference it so off the bat. It sounds very overwhelming. So what I want to do here is start with a very small task which is just open up a google sheep. Now I got the ball rolling. Does the first little step. I could take a took action. Says I think it will action? I'M GONNA get a little motivation. Okay I got a blank Google. She let me name this. Google sheets something okay. A customer acquisition for the month of December. Okay Let's see what else do I need? I need some columns right. Let me name these columns all right. What were information for the first call? Let me go and get that. So step-by-step so as I take action the more motivated I feel and have you ever like started something. And as you're taking action you start to feel more motivated more into it and you get into the groove where you can't stop. Well that's because action gives you motivation. Not The other way around and I love how this book emphasizes this next. A lot of US disappointed because we're not clear about goals. We don't feel successful because we never defined what success is so the book really goes deep on how you should make sure you're clear about what you're trying to achieve so in your business say for example and we'll have a live examples. Well you say I want to have a successful business. That's what most people say. And that's not really a goal because it's very hard to measure because you haven't defined success what is success so you might say we'll success means I'm earning enough money to feel comfortable in my lifestyle and be able to You know pay my company bills and Higher Grade Team Okay Great. We're still not done yet. We need some numbers here. How much money is that? Let's reverse engineer that. How much is your Your costs or salaries How much are you? Do you WANNA get paid? How much money is that? Let's say for example. We end up on a figure of three hundred thousand dollars a year. You need to earn three hundred thousand dollars a year to fulfil that need to fulfill the things you just said so essentially what you're saying is you need three hundred thousand dollar business to feel successful. That's your criteria for success. Most people stop here but I like to ask. Are you sure you know? Are you sure this is what you want? Maybe don't need such a team. Maybe your lifestyle. It'd be just as good if you made fifty thousand dollars less so reevaluate those numbers. Make sure that it's a number of the actually questioned and that you have a real answer to so let's say we did that and we realized. Oh we only need two hundred thousand dollars a year. Okay so that's our goal. I will feel successful when I hit that number. So where are we all right? Let's say we're in March right now. Are We on track? What's two hundred thousand dollars divided by twelve so as roughly sixteen thousand seven hundred dollars a month so have I made that much money in January and February am I on track if not what do I need to get on track? What do I need to do every day? Little by little to increase that number so I am making sixteen thousand seven hundred dollars every single month and therefore I am running a two hundred thousand dollar business. You get where I'm going here. You GotTa define success you have to have an actual metric. If they have a scoreboard. Just weeks I was playing Over at the League I plat just a bunch of Thirty plus year olds trying to get a good sweat on but that week the scoreboard and the gym was not working right. We couldn't know what the score was so somebody on the sidelines was actually keeping score with the Whiteboard But it was really hard to see when you're playing and when you're going up the corridas or an angle. The light was hitting in a way that you can't really see the score so for the most part other than time outs and When there were fouls I really didn't score was right. It was really hard to strategize in the game to know if you should slow down because you don't see a clock either you rush to score or how much of a lead you have. It's hard to know what to do. Basically when you don't have a scoreboard o'clock the same goes with business. Now on Orlando's this learning to life to so say for example. You have a personal goal of being healthy being healthy person so you got to define what that means you go to find being successful at that means is I mean eating certain foods that means Going to the gym exercising X. amount of days a week many of us make the mistake and say I gotTA lose ten pounds. Well what happens after you lose ten pounds? Is that say you're healthy forever? No you're GONNA gain a back if you don't continue to do. The habits would have to do on a regular basis to be healthy defined. This you know what success is the other thing I found very interesting in. This book is the idea of effectiveness. If I have a goal I need to ask the question. What do I need to do? What actions do I need to take to hit that goal but also I need to look at what I'm doing now? And what actions am I doing? That doesn't help me achieve that goal or is irrelevant to that goal. Sometimes we're doing things in our business that really doesn't help achieve that goal directly. And if you don't have evidence that it is achieving that goal directly if you don't have proof then you can't say it does a lot of us we say oh I'm on social media charts because it helps my business. Do you have evidence of that. Do have some sort of tracking. Do you have some sort of conversion numbers? Do you have testimonials that say that? Hey I love what you put on social. And that's why I became a customer. You have to have some sort of proof to your theories if you don't have proof then you can't use that as a reason to Spend your time because it's not really Going towards the goal only things that are proven are things you should do. This is something I learned the hard way over years of trial and error. I I would do things thinking. And that's just my opinion that this is helping when I really don't have any data to prove it. Data is kink. The numbers. Don't lie. So you need to get numbers to prove what you think or disprove it or understand that. Hey that's just busy work and that's not really getting me closer to my results or to my goal. I am more on. Today's a must read episode. But before that let me give loved it today.

It's it's not one thing it's another thing politics and this and that at least here in the US round the world we got as you may know corona virus going around I have not contracted it gets at least to my knowledge. Don't have any of the symptoms and you know I was looking at the CDC guidelines and it's interesting because you know one thing. I anticipate something that's going to happen is. I'm glad that more people are being more hygienic. More clean more more hand washing more sanitize you know as a holistic healthcare practitioner. I like that stuff. I like clean services right. I like using disinfectants and acupuncture. Is I have to take a class. Yeah no it's class and It's it's called clean needle technique and so help you. What's practice the clean using using needles in the cleanest form? It's why I laugh at questions. Like the acupunctures reused. The needles knows silly. This is twenty twenty. You can manufacture millions of needles. Hey we need a if we need something to come back. Here's some business to come back here. In America. We can manufacture acupuncture needles. And do it. Well that'd be great But now he's disposable needles and terms of You know just keeping clean surfaces and dealing with HIV patients or any kind of Transmittable disease that's That's something that's through blood they do focus on HIV the HIV patients but dealing with Anything hepatitis You know so just in that in that nature in terms of what you need to do so I am well versed in trying to keep everything clean. I run a clean clinic. I wash my hands. Rier to You know starting or meeting the patient I wash my hands prior to treatment and after treatment and do the best I can in order to you know a I know this this I do when I do is is because I'm trained. I know most people aren't going to be that hygienic rank or try to you know. I wash my hands. All my hands are so Ashi especially as someone of Haitian American descent or someone who's black right to have as she hands just a little tidbit. There doesn't sit well with me so I you know it's just it comes with the territory that's fine And you know so. I'm always wash my hands and all other fun stuff. Most of you are going to do that as much. And even in my experience I think one of the worst things I hate seeing is constantly. I see people who may go to the bathroom and leave not even wash your hands come out of the stall walk right out and you wonder why not just virus why things. I've been like you don't you know? I don't know the conditions in terms of what you know terms of where this virus came from Corona virus. But you know I so going back to the CDC's recommendations recommendations are basically things that you would do to prevent in the cold season and with more extreme measures now right no no touching fist bumping things of that nature to reduce the contact. And as we're working on a vaccine once again to my knowledge treatment guidelines are treating the symptoms and as right now we don't see it as much right. We were only hearing some of the stories coming out from China that And I was the percentage from a story that I read was eighty. Five percent of patients in China were using traditional Chinese mess. The medicine in conjunction with biomedicine in order to treat and in an recover from the illness in so that when that's encouraging right and and I read some stories in terms of you know the thing I in from what I've gathered in from what I know since seems like In China there's very rich sense of trying to help the country. The country in as having is in trouble so everybody pulls in resources in order to get people better to better the situation you can imagine it like all these these professionals all coming in. You know I even say like man even like you WanNa see like Superman Justice Donna. Timing of the Superhero battle coming in like at the end. Like everybody's coming. That's what it's like the brains of everyone coming in trying to treat patients and I. I read a story of a clinician who is I can't re- remember the city. I don't know if it's Wuhan Bay or I you know what a you know. I'll I'll try to find that. But this clinician setup set up shop right set up a clinic in the center of Industry eating patients and you know the interesting stories. That he's he's a foreigner right and I think you know in in in the sense that In China you know you have generations and generations of practitioners But you know people were impressed and It was just very cool. And it's all about helping people and Learning. This person had such a love and fascination for the medicine in the art and the culture and even to the point where he goes where he's living there and helping people right and And I'll even myself I I.

I don't I say every case is different. You can't tell you know I don't know what people's under you know you. You don't know what's going on with everyone's medical background so you know it's hard to say what would have worked. What would it have worked where they add you? Know it seems like With the virus especially with The older population and those with underlying conditions right you know are affected a lot right or affected the most in in in a high risk group and not just saying that no one that people are younger. Can't be but it goes back to taking care of yourself in like how do we? How do we get people better so that they can have a better chance of fighting? These these natural illnesses.

Fathers Day Special: Zeus & Cronus Pt. 2

"Something to note all myths have many versions and variations for this episode. We've selected those. We felt the most dramatic and entertaining and supplemented them with additional research into Greek traditions. Because mythology comes from tradition, there's a wide variety across sources are myths may not always be the version. You're familiar with, but we hope you'll enjoy them. The midst we used for this story involved graphic violence, child, cruelty, and sexually suggestive situations. Please exercise caution for all listeners under thirteen. Krona saw none of the battlefield. He spent ten years sitting on his throne as the war between titans and gods raged across the earth, he refused all company choosing to stew in his own failure. In spite of his best efforts, his children had escaped and brought utter ruin to his empire. His body was a wreck loose flaps of skin and long desiccated muscles. His eyes were hollow and stared off at nothing in particular and immortal being had never looked like they needed sleep as much as krona's did. It was almost relief when Zeus finally burst through his door, freshly forged lightning bolts crackling between his fingers. Father, your rate is over for the. Father to a stone. It was less ungrateful Shell than you have been. Your armies are defeated yield. By have yielded. Yielded the day rhea gave birth to you. Then you accept your feet. Accept Nothing. I want you to look me in the eye and tell me you wouldn't have done the same in my position I do not have your appetites father then you will be a weaker ruler that I ever was. Krona's Grin does he saw his sons is crackle with rage. This was the moment he been waiting for. He would lay the same curse on Zeus that his father Uranus had bestowed on him and watch with Glee, as his grandchildren brought about the fall of these new gods. He opened his mouth. And was struck by a sudden burst of lightning, his throne exploded behind him, and he flew backwards nerve, screaming in pain, he smashed into the wall and slid to the floor, limbs, limp and useless. Saying something father. Will full. no-one rules forever. This wasn't coming out right at all. The prophecy of urine had been clear and purposeful, a final blow in a battle his words felt weak and impotent against the fiery gaze of Zeus, more like a churlish complaint than a prophecy cronies finally found his voice again, and spoke with more conviction, but the words that tumbled out from his mouth, were not he expected. Savor this victory while you care. You will be a ruler unlike any the cosmos has ever seen. But, your children will rid session. You will sire many, but be a bother to no one. I have no words left for you father. May you enjoy the prison you first for your own brothers? The once all powerful Titan was dragged limp and ragged down the slopes of Mount Oh. Threats Krona's saw that the traders had gathered in the fields to watch his final humiliation, most of their faces were strange to him, but all were his kin, he saw premier theus the know it all tightened. Who irritated him so much and Memphis the tightness with more brains than integrity. Hate for all of them clouded his vision, and was dispelled like fog on a summer morning when he saw Raya in the crowd. Her expression, which had once been like an open book to him was unreadable. was there any of their former love behind those eyes or was craziness truly dead to her now? Cronies blanched with shame, she had told him how to avoid this prophecy, if his love had been stronger than his fear, he might have listened as the ternal dark of Charteris closed around him. Krona's wept for the first time in a thousand years.

Today is the second part in our mythology father's Day special last week. We told the story of Zeus is father. Cronos the one krona's overthrew, his own father, then began to fear that his children would the same to him he swallowed them all only for Zeus to escape his wrath and return to free his siblings. In this episode we're finishing the story of Zeus and Cronos Zeus has successfully overthrown his father but uncertainty lingers in his mind. There's no guarantee that he will be a better ruler than cronies, and like his father he could be vulnerable to his own ambitious children. After the fall of the titans, the Olympian Pantheon held sway over the universe, becoming a dominant force in popular culture for centuries afterward, but one thing that's not often explored in stories of antiquity is how the transition between the age of the Titans and the age of the Gods actually worked once the new rulers of the universe took the titans place. It was as if the Olympia NHS had always been there and there were plenty of characters whose appearances in Greek mythology essentially end after Zeus ascends Raya mother of the Gods and met us. First wife are important figures in the tight NAM. ICKE but once the titans are deposed. Their roles in Greek mythology dwindle. Medicine particular falls victim to Zuse's ascendancy. Olympus was quiet in the night, a looming obelisk darker than the sky behind it. A mountain goats struggled up the sheer cliff. Unusually high for such an animal, the goat side if he wanted, he could leap to the top of the mountain in an instant, but doing so would cause too much of a stir sparks crackled from Zeus Horns. As he placed one huff after the other, he should have stayed until dawn. This was an awkward and uncomfortable way to return home. As the God of thunder storms stealth was not his forte. Zeus to his natural shape at the gates of Olympus when his sandals touched the Rock, a distant boom of thunder roll through the sky, he winced, but no-one stirred with a sigh of relief, he strode confidently into his bedchamber, disrobed and prepared for rest. A shadow stirred by the window. His heart sank when he realized who it was. The. Sky was quiet tonight. Did Not mean to wake you. You did not I was waiting for you. or at least to hear the sound of the storm, you were out all night brewing. Listen My love. Some storms require more than a night of preparation. I am not a fool Zeus. Do you think we blind your dalliances? It has been over ten years since I was your sole companion, my husband. I see your eye wanders. Do you think I would lavish my attentions on others when I have tightness as my queen? I would not be so selfish. Sufficient for your desires. I nearly want you to consider that your father. Do not speak his name. Your father only took one wife and had no other children besides you and your siblings. Are you implying I lacked the moral character of cronies I. I only mean to imply that you're being fool. Our marriage bed has been cold for too long. And I know it is not because you lack of stamina. Consider my desires as well as yours unless you want me. Bearing children by your siblings do not speak so rudely. A father was overthrown by six children. Are you trying to raise an army of bastards against yourself? There is no prophecy saying I will endure the same fate as my father. Not yet. Before Zeus retort met swept out of the room, disappearing into the night, Zeus did not follow rage bubbled in his belly like lava by marrying him, she had become the most powerful woman in the cosmos, while her brothers and sisters languished in Tardiness. She was free to go where she liked to do anything she wanted she should have been more grateful. The fury in his belly subsided as much as he hated to admit it. His rise was due to her cleverness her strategy. She was as much to credit for his victory as his five siblings. Zeus did not sleep that night. He sat on his bedside, thinking his wife was a titan, though they had experienced many pleasures together, she had not conceived when she did so with the child be bent against his father's will like. He had been with cronies. How could he be sure that any children? She bore him would be loyal, and not exceed him in raw power, but there was nothing to be done. She was the Titan of wisdom. She would see through any ploy on his part or any attempt to deceive her. As the soft pink of sunrise touched the Dawn. Zeus finally realized what he had to do. The one way he could keep his wife from bearing children the one way he could deceive the goddess of deceit. He would have to take an action. She didn't think him capable of. When mets returned, Zeus was waiting for her. He wore on his face expression of warmth than contrition breathable, because it was crafted from true guilt, but not guilt for his numerous affairs guilt at what he planned to do. have. You reconsidered the error of your ways? I have forgive me. I often bore of routine when I. I fell for you. Our Passion was new and dangerous. Now it is safe. It is only safe because you lack creativity. There's more than one way to make love my husband. If it is still love, you feel for me, of course it is. I cannot tell if you speak truly. Most likely because you. Yourself cannot tell the difference between love and lust. Do Not Be Sawn. Fairness, my desire for you is as strong as ever prove it. I will we have coupled together many times in our godly forms, but birds and beasts have just as much passion in the respective forms. Yes true. Then let us change shapes together. Let us explore the breadth of pleasure that exists between the creatures of the Earth. Intrigued by Zeus is strange request medicine consented Zeus began by changing his shape into that of a stag, letting his robes fall to the floor, medicine followed suit, and soon the pair of them were entwined in a tangle of limbs, horns, and hooves, as their passion grew. Their appearances change shape freely between all kinds of animals in an instant they went from a pair of stags to a pair of wolves to swans with their next wrapped tightly around each other. They dove into the. The Sea to continue their tryst as Dolphins, Wales and sharks and burst out of the waves to take the shape of writhing serpents try, as he might Zeus could not help, but lose his focus in the sheer intensity of their play together his ecstasy rose, and then a moment of clarity struck, his mind, snapped back to his original task, he changed from an egret into a honeybee, and then into the smallest fly medicine followed suit shrinking down to the size of an insect. Then without warning Zeus returned to his godly shape and size and swallowed mattis. He felt her dard about his insides, buzzing and scratching his stomach horribly with her insect legs a moment later. Was Still. Zeus came to rest back on Olympics. His limbs trembled from exertion. His heart pounded like. But he could finally breathe easy. Mattis would not bear him any children who could dethrone him? He finally went to sleep confident that he had avoided his father's fate.

The transition between the rule of the titans, and the rule of Olympus required some degree of sacrifice, though he was now ruler of the Universe Zeus feared his power was not to last his first wife. Medicine had the potential to give birth to children, even more powerful than him to keep this from happening. He swallowed the tightness when she was in the form of a fly besides Mattis! Mattis only a handful of titans survived the transition. These included Raya and promiscuous premiere, theus would be punished for his own transgressions against the gods, but that's another story insert myths. There were other stragglers from the Titan sight of the war who had not been imprisoned in torturous yet at this point in the story they had escaped Zeus Notice Zeus was preoccupied by his rapidly growing family. Dark cloud swirled about Zeus, he held a lightning bolt in each hand, a joyous grin on his face. He had no targets today. He just wanted to exercise his power. The King of the heavens hurled a bolt through the sky, watching the weapon flash, as it lasts between two clouds the years after he swallowed menace were a relief he was free to go where he liked and do what he liked without worrying that his wife would bear children powerful enough to depose him shortly thereafter, Zeus found himself another wife. Her name was Hera. She was another of Krona says. Her Noble beauty entranced him. She was full of vigor and defiance, but was drawn in by his raw power. She bore him child who they named Heff estes. He was strong and grew to be a skilled smith. Hera was not a relic from the age of the titans, like mess was, and moreover her domain was matrimony Zeus Trust her to remain faithful and stand by her husband's decisions. This confidence was shaken however, when Hera found out about a nursery Zeus had set up at the peak of Mount Ida and a crib there that held child of her husband's born outside of their marriage Hera confronted him on this mountain, staring at her husband, as he knelt over the BASSINET. Explain to me. Why did this Hera you must understand? A God of great power cannot be contained by one marriage and a God. Such power should not have been married in the first place. I was swept up in Passion I. Apologize For what I have done. This child can be hours as if my transgression never happened. Who was its mother his mother? Did Not survive childbirth. You're lying. On this child is blameless. Rejoice in the fact that we have an air at last. What about our son? You know? I love her festus dearly, but he has no ambition to be more than a craftsman Sacree, Scorpio ruler just like we are. Zeus was unsettled by Harrah's mask like expression they had shared every joy and victory together for years and years. Surely she would be happy for him, but no cajoling could get her to step any closer to the child the necessary. She would not hold him in her arms, and would not even smile at the child's gleeful laugh. She left Zeus alone with the child and his thoughts returning to Olympics without so much as a parting word. What's the matter seques? I know. She will learn to love you little one. Trust me. But doubt began to Prickett Zeus his mind. Was He doing something wrong? Surely it would be cruel to let Zacharias grow up without a father. His mother percents any was too busy helping demeter with the harvest. He could not force her to raise this child. As these thoughts crossed seuss's mind, they were followed by a white hot shard of pain. Zeus fell to the floor, screaming all thought was wiped from his mind by waves of agony, as if there was a blacksmith hammering at the inside of his skull, he writhed and flung his arms out in all directions, tearing chunks off of Mount Olympus in mindless suffering soon, the pain cool to a dull throbbing and zoo stilled sweat pooling on the floor beneath him. When he rose to his feet again, his head felt uncomfortable heavy. His thoughts were scattered confused. He could not fall ill. What was happening to him? Had He been poisoned? Like Krona's was, that didn't seem possible. either. In his confusion, Zeus found himself wondering if this was feeling, all new fathers just learned to live with splitting headaches and disinterest from their wives, his pride would not allow him to ask his siblings for advice. There was only one would understand his fears, and whose advice might help him with Shiver Zeus don't to disguise and traveled down to the Earth into the deepest realm of the underworld. Even. Zeus is is could not see in the dark. He conjured a small listening bolt no larger than a splinter to illuminate his way. Rivers of silver ore laced the cave walls like glistening spider webs he heard, cries, and grunts of pain from within the inescapable cells of Charteris, but it wasn't anything he saw that told him he had reached the right place. It was the stench, the unmistakable smell of bile and burned hair ascent. He hadn't smelled since he stood on the peak of Mount odorous. You have a visitor krona's. Come from your father from this pit. Yes, I, see through that meagher disguise your time of being hidden from my gaze over. You cannot hate me forever. Father I did what I had to. I do not he. Child. I have no opinions on you whatsoever. You are a puppet of prophecy and nothing more. I am your son. Surely you would not turn away the first conversation you have had since you're imprisonment. You're here to gloat. He certainly have a strange way of going about it not at all father. I am here for advice. The stonewall before Zeus quiet for a moment, then a great crash sounded from the other side, the earth around Zeus shook mightily a crack, ran from the ceiling and stopped when it reached the Rock in front of him, the wall split just wide enough to reveal an eye peering out of the wall. It's pupil was so wide, the eye itself was almost entirely black shimmering in the light from Zeus hands. Have! You heard prophecy as well. My Rain is not like yours father. I will see the world prosper. And you will avoid directly answering questions I have children. Children who are free and do not fear their Father Zeus felt his skull give pulse of pain, but he shook it off. Zeus gave his father a curt nod he turned and walked back up the dark staircase he came in from he extinguished his lightning bolt as the gloomy light of the upper levels of the underworld returned the pressure in his skull was building horribly, he could feel the plates of bone straining against his skin like something was fighting to get out. When he returned to Mount Ida Zeus was greeted with a dreadful site. The Crib Zeus had laid Zacharias on earlier that night was split down the middle, the small bed within had been thrown to the floor, the blankets laying in tatters around them drops of rose, colored blood glinted off the floor like rubies. Zeus clenched his jaw, his vision swam with the beginnings of tears. He called for Hera his cry, echoing off the mountains until it reached all the way back to their home. Almost. Herro was by his side and expression of confusion on her face. What is it look? Our Son has vanished. I came here to see him and found only ruin. Did you hear any strange? Sounds or commotion? Come from this peak. I, was on Olympus I heard nothing. What enemies do we have? That would stoop so low. Perhaps it was the titans. They are all imprisoned in torturous, not all. Some managed to flee your wrath and hide in the wilderness. How do you know this I was brought word of this morning? I did not wish to see you of set. Who in you look so happy at your son's arrival? By this point, all of Olympics had gathered to see the desecrated mountain peak Zeus was about to speak to give some command when a crack split the base of his skull, and he dissolved into screams, blackspots depressed in front of his eyes, blotting out his vision, the Olympians around him look on in concern, hushed whispers left between them. What sort of power could level? They're great father like this. Was this yet? Another trick from the titans to remove Zeus from his throne. Writhing on the floor muscles tightening and releasing in Spasms Zeus cried out a single command. Story. Havana's hurried to his father's side. The smiths confused expression was answered by more screams of agony from Zeus noticing that Zeus was clawing at his head, her festus brought over a hammer and chisel. There was only one way to relieve the terrible pressure. The other gods turned Zeus over, so we lay face down on the floor as they held Zeus in place. A festus aligned the Chisel with the base of Zeus Skull. He raised his hammer and brought it down. The pressure the back of Zeus, his skull vanished, he filled a sensation like a mighty wind, rushing through the gap in his head before he could see what it was. He fell unconscious. Zeus meets his new air after this now back to the story. Zeus in darkness with a bandage around his head disoriented. He tried to remember what brought him here. But his thoughts were like insubstantial shreds of cloud, impossible to grasp for more than a few moments he remembered his sons aggress stolen away in the night. He remembered pain a searing headache that brought even the mightiest God to his knees. Pressure that only a split skull could release. All else was a blur. The Room around him was pitch dark without a soul stirring to help him remember. A small flame rose in the gloom, illuminating a woman sitting by his side, his heart leapt when he recognized his wife Hera. Her expression was stern. If she was happy to see him wake, she did not show it. What happened? Where did the others go? To War the war is over. Do you not remember her titans kidnapped? Your son's agrees. The others have gone to fetch back. I should be leading them. They have leader. Your daughter. WHO The woman who sprung from your skull? She claimed to be the daughter of your first wife. She was fully armed and ready to do battle. Did you see none of this. Zeus put a hand to his temple. He had not known how to be a father. The only father he had was his sworn enemy cronies, and unwittingly he had followed in crocuses footsteps he led his fear get the better of him, and swallowed his first wife whole in order to prevent her from birthing a child more powerful than he. And now medicines child had been born anyway. She attempt to depose him like he had done for Krona's. Leave you to rest. No Hera, please do not abandon me. Tell me where they went so I may go and fight by their side. I do not know. You shall simply have to wait for their return. Harris Candle winked out, and her footsteps receded into the Dark Zeus was left alone, wondering what his fate would be when his daughter returned. Zeus heads still ached as he sat on his throne in Olympics, but he would not leave it. He had to be ready to face his fate. Days went by the sun, rose, and set horrible visions of what could happen played out in his mind. Maybe his new daughter would so resent her father that she would turn Zacharias against him, and the two of them would return to wreak vengeance. As his fear subsided, they were replaced with an iron spike of suspicion. Something was wrong about the abduction. Those titans that still roamed free were not the most powerful nor the wisest. They would not have the craft to locate the child's hiding place without raising the alarm. Someone had told them where to find Zagros his father's words loaded into his mind unbidden. Your first mistake was to let your wife know of the child's existence. She will do everything in her power to destroy it. Hera. Desire to speak with you. What do you want? Ambrosia or wine for the pain? The pain is fine. I have a question for you. What is it? Where were you when our child was kidnapped? Your child, those two words are as good as a confession. You think I kidnapped. Your son resented the fact that he was my son. Did you not that I was giving him preference over our other children I love you my husband. But you would let the titans hurt me. Do. You want to know where I was. The Night Sagittarius vanished. I assumed you were with some mortal woman. I visited father. You did not. It is true I. Begged him to tell me what. I was doing wrong. How to be a better father for my children. He had a proposition for me a game of sorts. If you attempted to harm the child I was to set him free. If you didn't, he would stay. You had no right to make that bargain I trusted you to be an honorable wife. An unfaithful husband should never expect his wife to be honorable that you were behind our son's kidnapping for the last time. He is not our son. Hera finally confessed when she heard her husband depart. She went to mount. Ida and visited the infant. He was sweet and innocent, but she could not love him in his rosy cheeks and clumsy movements. She saw her husband's betrayal. She saw a bastard child as the air to Olympics. It was no easy feat getting the message to hyperion and the other titans, but I was willing to achieve the impossible to see you hurt. I know not what they intend to do with him. But I do not care. I am glad to have removed that thorn from our family. Zoo Sat quietly. He wished he could be angry with Sarah, but he found himself overwhelmed by a different thought, cronies had been right. He had known that his children would become just as corrupted as their parents. I am going to have to release father you cannot. He would destroy us all. You did not speak to him. He is no threat, a broken and bitter God, living out his days without light or hope. Freedom would be a blessing but I doubt take much joy at it. You never knew what it was like to grow up inside his belly. The burning choking suffocating doc. The one. Who tortured your own siblings that way! You would see him set free show. You blame me again for trusting you signing blame my husband. We are at a standstill. My betrayal matches yours. At that moment the doors to their palace flung open anatole figure strode into the chamber, her bronze Helms shown upon her head, like the chariot of Helius, and her sword was slick with Gore, her spare hand was clenched in a fist, blood coating the bare arm of to her elbow. Zoo searched her expression for resentment Darfuri and found none. Her face was dutiful and STOIC, the look of someone who only spoke when they had something to say welcome. Is this. Yes. Welcome daughter. My heart warms to see your return. What News do you bring? Fina Theta what news! Athena's expression fell. She dropped her sword to the floor and swept her home from her forehead. In three quick strides. She was at her father's side. She held her red fist tilted, downward in offering Zeus held his hand beneath it. She dropped a small bloody heart into his palm. It was the still beating heart of Zagros. All that was left of Zeus is son. Krona's looked far worse than remembered the figure that stepped out from the selling torturous was Pale, and sallow his cheeks hollow, and is haunted. His loose skin had receded a little during his time below the Earth, but his frame was still stretched and warped unnaturally when he saw. He grinned showing a row of jagged yellow teeth I was right. I am here to honor our bargain. Where is my kingdom to be my son? Along to feel the air upon my face again, oh, you're not going back to the surface. You're staying in the underworld. What you were only partly right father. Hera wished harm on the child, but never heard herself. Don't dabble and trickery boy. You do not have the practice. Relax, father, I'm sending you to the fields of easier. It's a much better prison, but a prison all the say. The last zoo saw his father was a pair of smoldering is disappearing into the hallways of the underworld on route to his new domain. The story that Athena told of Zacharias fate, still haunted seuss's dreams the thought of his child, being dismembered, and eaten by the titans, made his stomach turnover in horror, but with the saving of Greece's heart came a grain of hope that his child was not lost. Zeus eventually found a place for. His heart when visiting a temple, he seduced a priestess named semi. He swallowed the heart, and then impregnated the Priestess Soon Zacharias was reborn known as Diane Isis in the ages that followed Zeus found himself growing to fear Hera her jealousy and vindictive nature, clashed with his unwavering desire, and yet this passionate loathing only made her more attractive to him. It was the danger that he thought medicine was missing. The story of Zacharias is a relatively obscure myth. In Greek Canon Zaccheus was a central deity of orpheum, a religious sect in ancient and Hellenistic Greece. He's sometimes the son of Zeus and per seventy, and sometimes the son of Guy Ahead. Or heydays, but in the most popular part of this myth called the Sparrow Aga. Moss Hera gives up his location to a group of Titans who dismembered the child and devour him another less well. Aspect of mythology touched on in today's episode is the release of cronies from Tigris a story referenced by the ancient poet Pindar. Krona's is left in the fields of Alesia, where he cannot harm anyone, but is given a reprieve from the cruelty of Charteris. Pindar was the only poet who did not have cronies languish in Tartar S for eternity. The reign of the Olympia NHS unlike the titans before them did not have an end, their pantheon was adopted by the Roman Empire, and the Gods were renamed rather than supplanted by their own children. If legends of fall of Olympus Exist. They've been lost time, but in a sense seuss's fear about medicines, children came true. The Olympian Pantheon collapsed not because of other gods, coming to take their place, but by logic reason and science making mythology obsolete when we know that lightning is electric discharge in the upper atmosphere, rather than a god, hurling bright spears Zeus loses his power. The city named after his daughter. Athens is often seen as the birthplace of democracy, a metropolis where modern ideas of philosophy and the arts flourished challenging old world ways of thinking and making the world of far less superstitious place, so from a certain point of view, the goddess of wisdom did bring about Zeus downfall after all.
