How To Create Your Own ROI-Driven B2B Content Strategy
"Live in a more distributed world because everybody was forced into their house. It's a more digital age to talk to me about how that is impact. The creation of content and how people are staffing out their content production teams definitely so personally for autho didn't affect us a whole lot and that's because one of the drums banging for a while that i think like the rest of the world has kind of had to light. Come up wake up to a hard way is that i think more marketers sent a focus on like creativity and ingenuity and those things are good because it comes more natural to those types of people. But i think that they need to be more process oriented. And i think about operations kinda hat or the operations might set something that's often lacking and so what i mean by. That is the way we think of content seo and all. This stop is a huge factory. Right where you have. It's like a manufacturing process where you have specialized roles and you have an seo person or a strategy person working with a writer who's also working with an editor who's also working with an account manager designer. And he's i since collaborating a synchronous -ly across time zones and everything else and until you have that infrastructure built outs you're gonna struggle hitting both quality and scale meeting. Most people like for example companies can find one good writer but they can't find like hundred writers or they can't they do ten articles. A month of began do one hundred articles a month and so usually one of those things breakdown when you try to hit longer. Bigger scale usually quality starts to drop. And that's usually an indication of you don't have the processes and figured out you have the team and infrastructure figured out

"So i don't know how to explain the faith to my gr- my an-and uncle my cousin and his wife or i mom To encourage them to come back Does your primary language yet. That's the pride their primary and in with my younger brother who know we speak english. We don't have a a very close relationship so for me to try to push it right now. Doesn't seem to be the most prudent thing to do. It's a little touchy yeah And so so is just a matter. I just pray that Lahser prayers but also maybe over time when they see me being a priest hopefully that will plant a seed for them. Count like with father. Paul never mitch about priests and me just living his same concept just you know over time that they will be open to the idea of going back to mass and whatnot. They'll look at you and say he's really happy. Being preseason really happy with his faith maybe maybe there's something to it cracked cracked. Okay so tell me about your ordination. Your ordination date the wedding day. Yes okay. what was that daylight for. You pretty excited great. I don't know how to explain the feeling of it by just just super excited. No butterflies service this or anything like that nervousness not necessarily It was just just pure joy and excitement. That i am. I'm a prese. I'm prese so so you wake up in the morning here okay. Today's more ordanation date cracked all right. And do you get there first thing in the morning. Yeah we prefer what was it. You know what's what's all involved with the preparation on your end Well think god that the disorganized to have the worship office to take care of logistics for the ordination. So we really didn't have to worry about any of that. The only thing that we have to worry about is just picking the readings and who who does the lecturing who who vast this is a vested us at the ceremony at the ordination itself but mostly by by the worship office oh so you got to choose some of the readings. Yes we that. We chose author readings. Oh our class. Is there anything that you use distinctly. Remember about that I remember link lane. I mean just the major parts of the lane down prostrating to Being vested to you know the laying of hands And then the peace between the prese and odyssey promises and then and then Be annoyed with chris And i remember the picture taking afterwards But yet that that was the major part some of the some of the priests that have been on the program with us. They talk about what went through their mind while they were laying prostrate now you guys were on on the floor for quite a long time. Did anything go through your mind.

I am a Adc like three or four five so some people not everybody works like that and learning to to be more open to their personality on what it means to get the job done or just how they share their life with others and in so because everybody has different gifts talents. And so so. That's that's like the biggest internal formation. I've perceived and continue to receive. What does it look like in the seminary. do you have like a roommate. Do you have your own room are. There's a whole bunch of bunk together. What is that like. Every guy had his own room. Okay so you didn't have to deal with a roommate. No no but we do have to deal with loud noises next door. And there's there's Sharing facilities. I suppose would be another thing. d- yes and no Because at saint ben's There are some dormitories.

She really just shared this joy that taking the vowel poverty they only get like a five dollars stipend and just to buy whatever they want so no car no house but yet day were so genuinely happy so she planted at in and really kind of tug in my heart over over the years time in i also Met a priest who. I became friends with and we're still friends now. His name is father. Paul hove nick He's check prese at the time. He's in his sixties and he was my spirit director for a year and a half in so key. Really just kinda shared his life to me as a priest through natural conversation in spiritual direction. Which i met with him only About one hour so a month for a year and a half a so so having that kind of friendship He never pushed me to become a priest. You never even planted a seed of the idea of priesthood. It was just a fact of he. Living him his Priesthood joyfully He was very gentle He is gentle a priest to me in my experience. Because all the previous at that time pre imprisonment. They're they're not as nice. I don't know how say a little more strict. They're a little more strict you know so rigid and origin. Or just there's i couldn't sense a genuine happiness or joy from their preferred with father. Paul through this one and wound encounter a over a period of time. Really kinda planted that seed of. You know what. I'm me being called to the priest is. It might be possible because i really. I really liked that and in third was i Teaching confirmation for five years. I after year. Three or four. That's when i start seeing my students. I taught first year. Start to to come back. It's not all but a few of them Come back to just give their time and energy and talent to the parish in an.

"I what i knew was god exists and he loves me in so because of that i i had thought of maybe it could be priest but then i realized that i didn't know the time prese couldn't get married and so i just kind of put on the backburner. Okay when you found out when i found out which is louie like next couple of days after the retreat. So you're like. Oh i wanna be a priest within became married. Yeah exactly yeah so growing up so you were pretty much a christmas. Easter church families that renault. Not even that really. Not even that like i said i we. I've never experienced mass until i was in eighth grade him. Do i was baptizing the and the refugee camp in everything in my brother younger brother. He's baptize do. But you never knew anything about the catholic faith. Okay and after that one time. what what. What prompted your parents ju. Just because they wanted to get your sacraments in is that what it was. I really don't know. I just i guess. My only guests is that After her my parents are divorced. Since i was in first grade and so when i was in eighth grade it was another major transition. Ra- my life where she left the boyfriend that she was with for three years. We actually live with with a boyfriend in her bra. Sons of an so in after that experience and left him and we moved to the town. That's wind a should. Maybe i should just spring marquette to church. And so that's my guess. Okay guess the was it a regular thing after that or still kind of sporadic She never really went to mass on our own. Even even even when i when she placed me in compensation of a first communion confirmation in so So yeah so you. Becoming a priest was surprise for her. Yes it was It was actually to my whole family. 'cause all my mom's side or baptized catholics. But they're non-practicing. The only person i think the practice is my grandmother. Chilling goals mass every sunday other than that. I've never seen her. Pray the rosary and never seen her do anything at home and on. My dad's side are or a buddhist in so So yeah so. Do you think it's because of that. Your dad's buddhist that. Your your mom really wasn't that you know when you were much younger. I don't know it didn't really talk about that. You i thought about entering the seminary said you put it in the back burner. When did the thoughts comeback of you wanting to be surest I started coming back to perish. I christ incarnate word it's vimys parish in elif and that's where i got my first commune in confirmation. When i was about twenty one. I decided to come.

Sister of enemies dominican. Sister Her name is sister. Bernadette win right now. She works as things to celia But she was helping with confirmation and she actually just really kind of pointed to the seed of you know there's more to life than just money because growing up a low income basically agreed with food stamps. I grew with my mom having two or three jobs. So we we never really had much and so I went to work. And i start working in the financial services and so i met people who have money You know multi-million homes know big cars..

"I mean the most the most legendary moment is this guy explains how during civil wars people file fewer expense reports. So it's like you know in the in chest of expense accounting software. Should i mean it's such a thing. That just boggles the mind and begs the question. Of course whether they said the same thing if scientists have been the democratic party candidate in the choice was between biden trump. they turn out and and the of course we still don't quite have the full picture. Probably not the building military in the pitcher to we shouldn't ignore the fact that the ultimate the ultimate routes the final reason of state in fact in play in this crisis as well so yes absolutely spectacular and one hypothesis about the chinese. And he's only one because it is so opaque is that beijing believes that the west is so degenerated is point that is just time to bulldoze. There's no point in negotiating because the clock on us is running out. So why would you. If you're in a hurry wait. Trust the do whatever we're gonna do. They basically just got to set terms and move some leading interpreters of the chinese regime. Actually think that is the prevalent hypothesis on their side. It's one of those things like. I know you're resistant to saying. It's the weimar republic etcetera. But i feel like you know when you're doing a history of the present. There should be some sort of historical analog that is reasonable to draw on without you know without taking away from and i think that your point about it being all americans really important. We've spent some time in early august talking about tucker carlson going to budapest the broadcast from authoritarian capital admiringly and not not not critically. And i've i've written a lot about this about the way in which the american right is developing a sort of You know Leftist in nineteen nineteen admiration for the regime in budapest but the processes of democratic decay here and social crisis in this and i'm focusing on the us. Not just. because i'm an american but because it's at the center of the international system you know they're they're mostly homegrown right almost exclusively without knowing known in russia or china let alone hungary is really doing much to push the americans into where we are well except if you believe certain people in the democratic party in most of the trump administration but yes who loved to overstate kenya itself morbid symptom like is it to generative symptom. I struggle personally with thinking of any. I don't even want to say one. Two one analogy a reasonably good approximation. That one can draw on to describe what has happened to the international system as a result of of american decay in the past year. I mean i think you're absolutely right. Obviously to think it's all we have to think by way of analogy because all our concepts of formed essentially by way of analogy but when we're pushed into epochal type analogies. I think you have to buy into some metaphysics right. You have to base it. He believed the histories. Cyclical it's attorney unchanging. Such that across time you can say well that crisis is analogous to this crisis And i don't. I mean i actually think that history is dynamic. I think by way of sort of the stories that climate scientists tell. I think we're on the great hockey stick in a massively accelerating continuously progressing so then. It's quite possible to say as you justed that. This is probably unique. We've never had a massively. Mutual armed fulmer uni-polar state meltdown. In the way that the united states was in the process of doing may still continue to do in years to come that is radically in a fundamentally unprecedented event. Can we understand that historically well. Yes we have fragments terms concepts which of course we have to employ but above all we can stand understand that genealogical we can understand generative like does this have origins in the progress of american history. Just the process of american history. I've time yes. Acoustic does all the certain structural features referred earlier onto the way in which as it were states. Deplorable they're not just a single entity they functioning they file on different cylinders in different paces rather disa- take united engines and this is absolutely characteristic of american history. I mean if you think about the lingerie of america's rise to globalism from the late nineteenth century on woods. The norm is various types of relation right various types of structural instability. And incoherence whether it's to do with mass protests against the vietnam war for instance which the vietnam in deliberately played on so as to try and win the war not on the battlefield but disassembling american home front. Whether it's the classic wilson moment where the american president goes to the sites stacking event. Forget the paris. The paris climate conference from him to the paris peace coverage. You know you go. You negotiate the end of the biggest in history today and then it turns out american congress. The senate was always the republicans in the senate. We'll give you the majority right. So the moment the benchmark we have after all which is a globalist moment at the fortieth through maybe kennedy The kennedy is really gather a unique face in american history where you could say and then some people have nostalgia for the first bush in the reagan administrations and you can see to degree where that comes from. Though i would argue that the social foundations of that already fragmented beneath their feet. So i think that state of discombobulation state of incoherencies is intelligible historically but not by way of analogy but by the understanding of how who's kind of structural problems develop in american society and politics over time so to what extent you the books you'd self-consciously limited to around the january sixth attack sort of the the twenty twenty a little bit extension into twenty twenty one for purposes of the narrative have In the months since when the narrative in the book stops. What have you found sort of vindicated by the events. And what do you think already. You're like oh. I wish i hadn't written that. Maybe it's a loaded question for an author but you know what what what parts of your predictions or your thoughts are being born out by current events. No i mean of course you have writing a book like this on a time schedule. This maybe be crazy not to live in fear. I mean i. I had an elaborate contingency clauses built in with my editors the entire production process was designed so that we could deal with some of the monrovia's contingencies. So it's it's a complete effect question. It's a delta variant runs riots in china and don't get a handle on it. I wouldn't say that that as it were fundamentally destabilizes the book because you could still say it was a period pace. It would it would. It would just simply shocked me. It would surprise me. It would change my understanding of the world if the beijing regime cannot get a handle on delta or at least car immunize enough people. The last last set of figures i saw for the scale of immunization in china impressed me. So maybe they've actually done enough even though they're vaccine split. I work as well as the the best western ones that would really shake my understanding of the world. Unfortunately in a sense my all the pessimistic reading of the scale of the rupture that america has and the democratic party in particular is achieved with the clinton era oxy's of neoliberalism as being involved confirmed in the sense that i think we still remain humbled by the constraints democratic government functions under the united states self-imposed through very high degree. Because of the filibuster rules. And so on. But this is a regress..

"Imf in dc eventually started to try and describe this and one of the things they conclude is like. It's clearly no longer. Washington consensus one. Size fits all but it's also not a free fuel. There are certain elements of coherence head. There certain tools that people use we've moved. I would say from a kind of a doctrinaire economics which mu certain things are true and therefore you had to abide by certain rules through a much more experimental pragmatic kind of approach which is empowering and the many of the emerging markets to ride out the storm in very important by which we didn't tend to so many me included but very alarmist about what was going to happen in the low income emerging-market conan's now the really can make shopping civilized south africa's been savage. The pandemic is still running through but they did not experience the financial meltdown. Which is what we thought there beginning to experience so there's a great degree of competence an agency throughout the system and it is definitely a matter of learning tools elements like that but is also in this is very important to say hierarchical in other words. There were first a second. Movers third movers. The first move is conditioned the possibilities for action for everyone else. That doesn't really even need to be a sit down coordinated beating once upon a time you know smoke fills it doesn't even need to zoom call now. All the really needs to happen is the fed moves then the ecb. The bank of england move and then within forty eight hours three four days. The rest of the world's central banks can move to so much police kind of tacit signaling. That we see all the gop markets where you just need one person to price lead and everyone else follows and the fed effectively did that in march. This was not a grab environment. Crew coordination in two thousand eight. The bush administration staggeringly like the most unilateral administration to that point convened the g. Twenty and there were four more consultative arrangements. That's of course wasn't going to happen with trump. But powell the need to do that. He just needed to show their. We're going to do really big deal. Qb a flood the world with dollars. They opened up. These things called. Liquidity swap lines rated somew- facilities could repair facilities. And everyone else. Then you want to do was the system now. Was this a learn set of techniques. Absolutely what about which. There is explicit communication around the world. And which the imf increasingly trying to formalize not in the sense of a you know a rigid system that in a sense of things you can do to manage these risks and you in an ad hoc way country by country trion no optimize. Was that a strong word. But as it will bundle your way through using these kind of technique so somewhere like brazil for instance don't enormous foreign currency reserves right now so they can manage the depreciation of that currency without the whole system blowing up. They would do courses. They've done very recently need to raise interest rates. But it's not the shock kind of reaction that we still ten fifteen years ago let alone in the late. Nineteen ninety s. I'm so at this point about the the fed. Being a first mover. Is i think really significant of some broader themes about america's role in the world and its influence over global politics. Nikola konami that you know ran through the year in a variety of different ways and that's that's the theme. I want to pick up on especially vis-a-vis china when we come back from this break.

"Had had this effective the horizons but we believe be possible in certain places in terms of the state's role in our society and economy. I think that's absolutely true. Which is why. I reject the robot banners from the new left review of where he describes. This is simply escalating plunder. I think that does justice to the nature of this of this of this moment at all to be honest and you. You're absolutely right in a sense. This is the first moment in the experimentation with really. Large-scale generous welfare spending in america's history since the great society moment of the nineteen sixties and it turns out to be easy to do and the mta is right. And so you can. If you want to avoid the crisis leading to mass poultry. In huge fiction simply to create the she'll be no invasions and spend large amounts of money handing out checks to the least well off in the caz act of two thousand twenty this was balanced by huge giveaways to the more affluent. What's most striking entirely confirmed. Point is that the the rescue package. The biden administration the single piece of massive legislation. They passed so far in march was much mcafee targeted at middle and low income americans and really contains a minimum of poke is one of the least pork laden scale spending packages that we've seen before so this is a real shift. I think the pushback would come. People like mike cudgel like about this very effectively even as it was happening. We have to differentiate between large-scale spending which can be legislated for and you can find majorities for moments of crisis in the spring of this year. I think still in fact accounts amendment of crisis and as you say was still in the middle of this way not by no means done and the question of whether the american political system is capable of structural change which fundamentally and in the long-term changes is balance. And that's what so far at least in actual legislation has been signally absence so far so i would agree with you that as it were disinherited of monetary and fiscal policy for the first time extended quite dramatically to offsetting the shock on those worst-off in american society and it is an eye opening experience with what could be done and on the other hand. What we've seen is the replication. If you like of this is as it were were interesting. Stories about structural power. Come into play. It's very difficult for the american state machine to do some things and it's very easy for the american state to do others. It's very difficult. The american states to legislate ineffective national unemployment insurance system in fact so difficult. No one would dream of attempting to do it. But he's quite easy if necessary to conserve bunch of checks. Especially if you put the president's name on them and pub out actually ha- easier to do that the us. Is you say than in europe where we very difficult to do that. But the europeans do have a short time working system which meant that. Virtually no europeans actually suffered unemployment nightside. There were trade offs which was a cheaper system. Didn't include the same budgetary effort. A minimized if you like the psychological stress to people who knew that they would have jobs to return to as soon as the phone. I was over so america. These actions which will scale in the us case were structurally constrained unwell driven by panic. I mean it's difficult you know. We should not forget the skate of the panic. Last spring. i mean i as an economic historian never imagined. I would live anything like those eight thirty thursday morning news releases with bureau of labor statistics showing the latest number of people enrolling bush staggering and against that backdrop. I agree the american political system reacted in a way which was really surprising. But i the limits of three parenthood with seeing them now in the difference between the first stimulus package the by administration was able to pass. And what's the trench warfare that having bolted. Now this theme about panic in about different elements of the state working differently comes up in a number of different ways in the buck but one of the ones that was really interesting to me is the role of of not just the american central bank. Which is like the key actor in the stabilization of the financial system. In the story that you tell also obviously in reality but also sort of informal global network of central banks working together coordinating on a rescue package to make sure there wasn't another financial meltdown. On the scale of two thousand and eight because obviously the economic indicators this time around were considerably worse going into it much fuss moving. It was like nothing we still right. I mean insane. The unemployment wave striking through the world so so so to what extent can you say You know there were some real and significant lessons that were learned in that last crisis that were applied effectively this time around and to extent. Can you say central banks. Were just doing what central banks have always done. and to. What extent can you say that. The response and i know i'm piling on a series of questions but they're interrelated. I promise you say that. The system worked effectively in terms of preventing a catastrophe. Even if the end result as you say was to a degree exacerbating inequality this is an argument. Have done raising a going all the way back to thinking. Yeah well you know something worked whether we would call assistant. I think this a big question to which i am practically say. No this. is you know. Speak twenty if the participants today about two thousand eight nine. Was it a system now. I mean they were just improvising their socks off grabbing deep into the historical canon. You know essentially. Ben bernanke is mansur. We are not going to fail the way we did in the thirties in his promise. He made to milton friedman and schwartz. We learned the lesson. We are not doing that again. Or else follows well. I think they've developed since then is tool kit and i used that metaphor triplet because it's a little bit like bitcoin stein. It's pragmatic it's discombobulated. It isn't a system. It's just a bunch of useful tools. Things like qe which frankly thoroughbred blueblood economists don't even know why it works it does work if you're talking about conventional macropolicy but when you're talking about stabilizing the us treasury market it must work because there's effectively just the hydraulic operation of sucking treasuries off private boundaries. And they did it on epic scalia march of last year and this tool kit you know is now. Has been acquired elaborated upon not just at the center and the fed is the center of this system but in the emerging markets as well which you're acquiring ever-greater degrees of sophistication and competence in managing their risks. And what's really interesting. This people like the bank of its national saxon..

Princeton that some of the best work on the witch trials of the early modern period was done in the immediate aftermath. Worlds will too because people were preoccupied with issues of ideology whether we like it to be project backwards when you're working on some she period of history. This is less pressing. That's obvious perhaps it involves more of a kind of bleep if you're working on the immediate Every single choice you make is conditioned by some view. The future so i think it's been a very obsessive kind of activity one. That's hard to escape an extremely eye-opening intellectually as well about how those assumptions frame. What we saw it is risky in. What is the risk. Is that you end up looking stupid. We got it wrong. But that too i think is a healthy thing. Historians to experience up. Close personally the rather abstract academic kind of way the you might be embarrassed humiliated in some seminar writing about the presence in this way which is of course the responsibility of journalists and commentators. It'll walks of life exposes you to that risk much. I'm about to say you've be being wrong as a professional hazard. I'm very familiar with a you kind of have to earn it right so night. Get over it they. That's what wagering on strong interpretations in the flow of events entails and. Yeah it's a lesson in humidity to that's extent so one of the central sort of intellectual wagers to pick up on that and the book is your discussion in your treatment of the concept of neoliberalism. One of these very contested ideas. I ping pong back and forth from thinking that it's a discrete and very useful term thinking. It doesn't refer to anything at all to thinking refers to multiple things at once. So you have a very distinct view of what twenty twenty tells us about the version of neoliberalism that is sort of generally summarized as the reagan thatcherite consensus right the move away from public service in keynesian economics to a model heavily invested on shrinking the size of the state on privatizing in some areas not another's on privatizing central services on generally seeing the government is less responsible for the market and for the welfare individuals. Then it used to be in a in a sort of the traditional postwar model now. So that's the sort of you can correct me if i've misstated your definition. I'm sure i'm being imprecise. In language again it's one of those contested terms but you've a very interesting view on the argument that many of me that the neile consensus died in twenty twenty with the massive massive amount of public investment and individual cash transfer programs and fiscal interventions by states. You don't think that's the that's the full picture. So tell me a little bit about your treatment of the concept here. I mean i'm totally with you. I've picked around to the book. I did about two thousand eight. I don't use the term except as a term that becomes historically relevant during the period. I decided this time round. You know what helps. Let's have a shot at this and distinctly in the cam. The you referred to his being like this is a term that refers to several different. Things always determined in several different ways. And i think you can think of neoliberalism body of doctrine. Like a set of ideas associated with a group of economists. And i actually also take. The view is much wide. Agreed with economists commonly lethal. So he's not just the australians and milton friedman i would include mainstream macro of the mit. You know heyday in the seventies eighties nineties within the frame. And i think that's a suffered a real crisis of confidence he like. I also think that neoliberalism is a practice of government. I think it's also a social structure. I think it implicitly assumed a set of geopolitics. And if you push the envelope really far out i think you could say it. Also because of various people in the climate left of pointed out it's coterminous with the development of modern environmentalism happens in the same period real existing actually existing neoliberalism and appearances. The seventy s has also been framed within a set of assumptions about how we would manage relationship nature and i think at the level of ideas. This is the easiest thing to talk about. Neoliberalism has really ruptured right. The coherence of that body of thought is now shocked pieces. It was increasingly ad halt anyway increasingly relied on mobilizing a bunch of people who had nothing to do with chicago. At that level. I think near liberalism is manifestly regime in crisis. I think you could say the same thing about one. What turns out to be one of the framing assumptions. Which is globalization is simple. Good i call it innocent. Because it doesn't change the geopolitical balance of power that you know is also an assumption that has been just trashed if you believed as people like dourthouse did whose work on climate economics energy can stops victory episodes of generative moment of neoliberalism in the nineteen seventies with the oil price shock the markets and various private insurance. We're going to take care of the problems of the answer Also you could say things were blind to smithereens by twenty twenty because with climate you could maybe discount engage in all of this fancy stuff they do to discount the risks out and so then you can decide. It's a minor problem. The pandemic blew that up right. This was blitzkrieg answer perceived. It was coming after set the pace of days hours weeks and he didn't act. You are in a mess. The two elements. I think of neoliberalism which in some sense is approved. Most resilience are precisely the dimensions of social class inequality. Maybe we think near liberalism as a project really of the restoration of a balanced plus power and the installation. The creation is making permanent of various types of structures of inequality than twenty twenty did nothing but reinforced os and in part twenty. Twenty did nothing. But reinforce those because what we saw in twenty twenty s we saw in two thousand eight was the mobilization of state resources the state balance sheet in other words government spending and monetary policy to do what well in really very explicit terms conservatively stabilized. The status quo. In other words. We proclaim that no one was responsible to twenty twenty other than you know. A cake processes of natural evolution. So there is no moral. Has problems are no one needs to get punished. So yes it's actually legitimate handout. Hundreds of billions of dollars the businesses. Because they're not responsible for the situation that they're in we also in. This was kind of unusual in the united states. Recent history gave out large amounts of money to a badly off americans who desperately needed it so that was the innovative element but the entire spending package especially in two thousand twenty itself was explicitly conservative. It was about maintaining the existing order because was to blame for what had happened was it. Impacted of course was as we are familiar with supercharge. The rebound in the financial markets and ham did literally trillions of dollars to the best of members of american society so to read. That's as oh well a massive break with their liberalism's we saw much. Active role for government seems to me to be naive when it comes to what government has historically been responsible. Full one way of simplifying. This is to say that. Nip neoliberalism has a janus-faced this is the formulation that goes back to david harvey right. It is the one hand an order a stable order of governmental constraints politics of discipline. But it also has an interventionist activists that time even just frankly violence side that is willing to bulldoze out of the way obstruction. So this would be the thatcher phase the strikebreaking of the reagan era. Also of course of the delight finish age and so the practice of neoliberalism was always had that double edge like rules and intervention. What i want to push on this a little bit. Not because i think it's wrong but i think it's worth looking into some of the tensions here. Rick is obviously. It's correct to say that the well-off and in corporations have emerged in some ways as tremendous beneficiaries of government largess but in the united states for example there was a individual cash transfer program with no president in modern american history. Right this was an expansion of our welfare. Saying you write you write this in the book that really is or was at the time putting us on par with what and in fact in terms of the immediate crisis response ahead of what european states were doing right. There it seems to me especially in in the posts condemn mullet. We're not really in the post. Pandemic era obviously with delta strain. Especially but you know in in the year. Afterwards there's been this push it Ideological reconfiguration of what the mainstream of politics in our country. Certainly. and i don't know to what extent this is reverberating around the world with these ideological changes often tend to not sticking find within boundaries. But you have A faction of the republican party becoming more open directly to the government's being involved in redistributed projects especially when they benefit traditional families. And then you have a biden administration. That's embracing child tax credit and a more expansive welfare states at least proposal forms and in certain forms of legislation than the democratic party had been willing to certainly since bill clinton and it seems like even if the immediate beneficiaries of much of what happened in two thousand twenty was capital that.

Very few people at this point doubt that twenty twenty is going to go down as an incredibly significant year in modern history. But what actually are going to be the parts of this year that we've all lived through that were significant right. Not just that felt important in the moment but really reflect deep trends and changes in the world that we're living in we all lived through it. But what do we know about what we lived through and its impact on the world's. That's what i'm going to talk about today on worldly part of the vox media podcast network with economic historian. Adam twos who has a new book coming out called shutdown and it is a really fascinating book comes out in early september on what we all just lived through and making sense of it through contemporary lens. I'm zac beecham your traditional worldly host and. I'm delighted to welcome on the show at in your work is is really great and i'm really glad that you would about writing this. Thanks for being here. It was a pleasure to be. So i guess i want to start with a sort of broad framing questions. Something that i was curious about. Because you've written these relatively contemporary histories. Before he wrote a book about the two thousand eight financial crisis. How do you think about writing what is essentially a history of the presence. When you don't have archival sources to work through in the way that you you also wrote a book on nazi germany. It's a very different kind of history. How do you write about this especially when we are in lockdown for the most part. And you can't go to china to write about. You know using the chinese using chinese government sources to talk about the origins the virus for example in the ways that you might thirty years in the future. It's a it's a great question. It's a pressing question. Doubtedly does for me personally register shift in in how i work. I i did start looking in the archive. Says he is guy now on you. A late night. Nineteenth century twentieth century paper records. And obviously the the work of writing contemporary histories radically different. From that the way it struck me last. Joe was as a source of compulsion. I didn't really feel. I could do anything else That was in part. Because one of the things that happens with histories off julia they become ways of making sense of the world and crashed. It had that impact impove because crashed. This was the book about the two thousand eight financial crisis because it was itself kind of distillation of the work of interpretation and analysis that journalists and contemporary economists did all the time and so when the events of last year began to happen i was enrolled woman. Willy nilly whether i liked it or not in the Sense making and i that point actually just personally. Psychologically emotionally couldn't digest the the sorts of cognitive dissonance of of inhabiting and living in a world. That was so you know it came very close to this. This is the most the shock. I've experience most viscerally personally whilst spending my day job my day. Job working on the history of Energy policy in the late seventies early eighties. Which is what. I started twenty doing and so i decided to collapse the two things and it's it was different again from writing the history of two thousand tonight because while i while two thousand and eight was happening i was working on a book about world war one and i really wasn't paying that much attention but this time round you know as a as a commentator increasing the on contemporary events i really was no escape but then increasingly the more i thought about it. You know the more. I felt this is a this is a really very productive generative exercise sense. I'd almost argue that. Every historian should should make at least one attempt to write contemporary history on the earth as it goes along. Because there's nothing that more viscerally more more directly exposes you to the way in which you interpretations always in some sense depend on prior sub prior about how the world works but also expectations about how it's going to turn out. This is true..

"You wrote. A book called the woke supremacy. We've talked about it on this program before. Why is it a supremacy like talk about that idea. I mean let's let's define what a supremacist movement is and what it isn't supremacist. Movement is not one in which somebody has mis gendered plastic toy potato. That's just not a supremacist. Movement supremacist movement is not one in which they found a roaring in a seventy year. Old children's book of a hardworking asian. Man that happens you've been drawn somewhat. Cartoonish -ly eric johnson withdrawn cartoonish lee to a. You know i gotta tell you. This is how fast culture moves the last time you on. We were talking about this stuff and it's already like like late years. In the past. Dr seuss was singled out now. Dr seuss was a leftist. Basically but he was singled out as the cannibal as the wo- culture cancelled culture. Eats its own for a couple of cartoons. He in one thousand nine hundred thirty. He drew a chinese man. Who by the way. If you were in chinatown because the books about mulberry street in one thousand nine hundred thirty the chinese man would have actually looked like that so it wasn't like he was making fun and project. He was running the way they are. But but that's how fast culture moves at that happened that gets cancelled. We move onto the next thing the next thing the next thing and then suddenly here we are. It's insane speed. it is indeed but that's the way it is a totalitarian authoritarian. I e supremacist movement. Right so what is the definition of supremacist movement. It is it is this. It is one in which the members of that movement seek to create a society and then a world but first a society in which all the rights privileges protections opportunities that society belong only to those who possessed a certain traits. All others and eric spelled out the capital low all others are not only to be denied these things but it is a moral imperative to the supremacist. That's society's resources be used to fully disempower forever. Silence and do permanently erased the memory of the existence of all the others so do the woke believed that all rights like right to freedom of speech at long old-age owes who possess the print trail.

Two thousand twelve thirteen and fourteen to believe that freedom meant that a person should be able to do whatever they saw it as long as it doesn't harm another person and this really interesting debate. Kind of became front center in the conservative movement started on the outer like more wonky areas and it kind of moved into the mainstream. Which was that. Should we as conservatives use political power to prevent drag queen story hour from happening at public libraries. And and. I thought i knew i was like. Oh yeah freedom what. I don't like it but who am i. And then. I heard very articulate. Arguments are so rob. And i won't dare steal the argument from you but you won me over and i think with millions of others were all of a sudden if we are not protecting and conserving tradition. If we're not even protecting our children than what good are we actually doing. What could just walk us through that argument a little bit and then the impact that it had yes so the argument was and it's not just dragging story hour. Which as a at the time. I was recent father and did outrage me. The fact that drag queens. I live in manhattan. I actually happen to live literally above a drag bar and joshua scenic place. You know that's one thing because it's known as okay. That's that's where you go. You have your like your about to get married you know you have your party at the drag fine but to then to say that this needs to be brought forth in front of children and to say well you know this kind of a frank. Frankly transvestite fetishism should be normalized for kids. Outrage me as a father. Maybe it's because. I'm from the middle east but i think a lot of americans will aren't from the middle east. Have the same intuition that there's something gone really wrong. Civilization -ly when we when that happens and someone dressed in latex boots to here is reading books. Two toddlers is bizarre argued that some of this has to do with precisely what josh said. Is this account. that freedom.

But then the difference between the actual award and the talk that gets given at that award.

That's kind of reminiscent about what it's like to give them seem to get the real problems in machine. Learning are upload times on get hub and how to fit people into a physical space. So if we can solve those anything's possible but actually will be. It will be interesting next year. Because the i think is seeing this showing how from everything we've learned during the pandemic about what works and what doesn't work because to be honest. Most of what happened just happened to continuity and tradition right. People change expecting some current. Same way it's gonna be exciting. Yeah we'll see what happens. In the meantime you can explore all of ics conference online this year at icm. L. dot c. c.
Let's Make Podcasting Metrics More Meaningful
"I've talked with you all before. About how the way we study podcast. Metrics need to evolve and change. I wrote an article on the topic. All about making them more meaningful in that article. I've talked about the l. Intego williams who wrote an awesome piece for neiman lap. Discussing better ways to engage metrics. She was kind enough to come on the show and talk with me about her thoughts on the ways. We should be measuring success. Thank you so much for being here. I'm really excited heavier. We wrote an article a little while back in one of the main focuses was about not just looking at downloads looking at other metrics in wrote like a really killer article for nieman lab something. I wasn't super familiar with. When i kicked off problem so i want to turn over like tell everybody a little bit about your article and demon labs and what your goal was with that sure i will. Thanks for having me. I love talking shop with you. Your resign and your own. Thank you so. I genuinely believe and i think now. Of course four years have actually proven that the download is kind of useless as a measure of success. Then i think you agree at the armed. Smart people casting agree. It's like the emperor has no clothes kind of thing. And so i had just been a passive -ly other measurements for our shows over months and then neiman invited the invite a bunch of people at the end of the year to write an opinion. And i thought a if there is any marriage what you've been obsessing about for the last six or seven months put it down on paper and they share it so that people can scrutinize it right. Because i'm a journalist and so that's really where you test your idea in the public arena
Menopause: What the Heck Do My Labs Mean?
"Let's jump into today's topic. Which is how to interpret your labs. Now a reason. I get this question. A lot is because a lot of times. I find that the women who are asking their clinicians to order these labs either do so disgruntling. -ly were they don't do so at all. And they're left to their own defenses to try to interpret. What their labs mean or on the flip side. If they're willing to get labs sometimes. I see way. Too many labs be ordered like every progesterone byproduct. Which just isn't really necessary. So i wanna try to teach see how to interpret your own laps now. The first thing that you do want to know is guessing where you might be in the peri. Menopause to menopause transition now guessing actually means thinking about what your period are doing now. The diagnosis of menopause is actually not period in twelve months. In that is the most obvious predictor. So think about what you're periods are doing. That's going to be the first step in interpreting the lab. Work that you're getting so what i want you to do is either electronically if you pull out your phone and you start writing down when you have spotting or any type of bleeding that point to be really helpful and if you're one of those women who doesn't get periods anymore than this is something that you don't necessarily have to track but you could track what you may be think are. Pms like symptoms. So who are the women that don't get periods well if you've had a hysterectomy you don't have your uterus anymore. That's one reason you're not bleeding now in this scenario should have your ovaries in. Because if you're over his were taken out than it obvious that you're already in menopause. The other reasons you could have a progesterone releasing udine place in your uterus which is effectively creating a very thin urine lining. So you don't have any periods. You coulda had a uterine artery. Embolism action where you don't get periods anymore or you could have had an ablation and you won't get periods anymore. If you're not getting periods you can't use your periods but you may still beginning. Pms like symptoms so you might wanted then track. Are you feeling bloated. Are you feeling gase. Are you feeling moody. Are you craving salt or chocolate. Things that when you used to get your periods would let you know it was the hormonal fluctuation leading up to that
Should You Give Your Partner the Password to Your Phone
"Talking it out. We all discuss you know. Relationships love sex you know. That's that's what it's all about on this episode on this earth podcast and today. I wanna talk about privacy and boundaries interrelationship and it re. It's related to a tweet. That bowel had or he just he just pretty much put out there. Fellas does your girl have the password to your phone. He just asked the question. Does your girl have the password. I'll preface this by saying that. I gave to my password just before this podcast. Because i knew no. I'm kidding i'm kidding Actually we tote have each other's passwords. But it's not an issue for us like we're solid. We trust each other. You know we don't give each other any reason to think otherwise right. So my take on the subject is if you're in a committed relationship and you have nothing to hide and the conversation comes up fellas. I'm sorry. give up the password and for the ladies. Same thing goes for you. I mean fifty fifty. It's fair you got to give up your password as well and then go from there. What do you guys think. This complete trust then. There should be no reason. Like i'm an all in kind of person like i have nothing to hide. Everything's on the table. And i would have no problem with giving the guy that i'm dating my password to my phone. If we're at that point you know but if it's an early on like honeymoon phase. I don't know if that's that trust has been able to be gained yet to do that nothing. I'm hiding something. But it's just unnecessary for you to know every little aspect of my life. If we're not in that position in our
The Hidden Cost of Miscarriage
"Of the forty three percent of americans who say they live paycheck to paycheck. Eighty five percent are women and of the thirty percent of americans who earn minimum wage. Sixty six percent. Are women women are more likely to work in lower income jobs than men which means their schedules are more erratic. Their hours are in assessing to feed their family to put not just two meals but three meals on the table. So time off just isn't an option. Time off is money very few companies offer miscarriage. Leave paid time off is something. They're just not incentivized to do because they perceive it as a cost both in dollars and productivity which i would argue the cost of human capital is far greater by not giving this carriage leave. Meanwhile unpaid time off for pregnancy loss is simply something most women cannot elective. -ly do an even though i've been a champion for women's voices in economic issues for more than a decade. I couldn't have imagined that. Miscarriage would actually be one of those issues until i experienced it. Firsthand my emotional experience isn't rare but my ability to take time off to recover from my miscarriage is and the ability to do so is an unexpected side effect. I believe of a broken financial system. It's exceedingly rare to have a clear and specific policy in place. New zealand recently approved. Three days paid leave after a pregnancy loss and i think companies can and should create their own
The Friendliest Countries
"Is a fun episode. I'm not really sure it'll be on your list and guys this is why specifically. I'm gonna ask you to give us your list on instagram at extra packing peanuts. Let us know the from these countries because this is a term that can mean a lot of things with a lot of people and it's very dependent on your specific experiences in those countries right. Because you know everyone's going to have different experiences that was. That's what's fun about traveling. Someone could go to a country. That's there's someone aspect or i didn't. I didn't see this that friendly. It's because you're obviously having your own unique experiences. I have an honorable mention. Okay and i want this be on the list. And but i'm just gonna put on mention and then move on and maybe talk about a little later but australia. It's on my list. It's pretty high at my awesome perfect and then we can get into australia than that. Yeah we'll get into that okay. Cool well then here. We go each have five. We're gonna countdown again. We always tell you we. When we do the list episodes. I don't know how she doesn't know my so. There might be some crossover. I don't know what's on harris or where it is. She doesn't mind so and you always lead it off ladies first number five. My number five is cambodia. And i have to say that. This is because of one person individually the nicest human. We have ever met dr as. I have said this multiple times on other podcasts. that is boondi and there are other people in cambodia who are really nice too but boondi was driver the very first time that we went to cambodia and you know we have since seen him again. When we've been we've connection on social media you know we're facebook friends. He is one of the loveliest people we've ever met in the world and so therefore cambodia has to be on my list. Yeah he's the i will say. This is the nicest person i've met ever traveling. And i debate putting cambodia on the only reason i didn't was because we haven't had that much experience with a lot of other people. They're the people we have have been super friendly so again. This comes down to like. What are you considering. You know this gut reaction again. It was harder for me to make this list i think. Then he'll is the nicest human we have ever met and the gentlest soul. We've ever met and an absolutely phenomenal individual. That many of you listening. If you've been to cambodia and been to see him reap have used him as a driver before based on us recommending him and he is. Everyone has come back and said. Oh my gosh everything you say about plenty is completely true and you probably even under sell like i. I can't believe how nicest guy so if you go to see him reap. We have a post on our website. One extra peanuts take the two minutes to find it. Get his number and e-mail boondi you will be. It's the best two to three minutes you could ever because he will make your experience. Incredible and I can't wait for the day. That we get to see him and his wife and his family again because they are absolutely lovely people My number five. And i'm going to stay in that same region carry on because i put thailand on and i also have talent on my list but yeah we'll talk about it now just different cultures different people but a lot of similarities. Because you're in the same region and you know it's called the land of smiles and we have spent more time in thailand than than most other countries that we've been to and we have more people there just because the way we've traveled through. And you know everyone is just. They're just happy to to be a lot like there's a there's a happiness that permeates that culture where you could have someone who in our is you know is poor and and has job. Maybe we wouldn't want to do or something like that. And he's sitting on a boat cutting up pineapple as we're on a on a little trip out to this island and he's just smiling so big because he's just on a boat cutting pineapple and it's delicious and we're having a good time because reverend good time. This guy's having a good time. So thailand just overarching. -ly deserves its name. The land of smiles. yeah. I definitely agree with that. It's higher on my list. It's number two and every time we've been to thailand which has been quite a few times as trump said. We spent a lot of time there. One full month just in chiang mai meeting type people. They're always so friendly and we went to tie wedding. not uninterested. area was our friends hometown and we didn't know that many people there because it was her family and her friends of her family was huge. Like two hundred plus people. Everybody was so friendly than we actually went out after the wedding with some of her closest friends and it was just such an experience. Yeah we we've met so many wonderful friendly people thailand okay. So thailand's you're number two. But what's your number four my number four co stabby guy So we have been in costa rica now for two and a half months which is one of the longest times we've ever spent in another country. Of course right. I think this is the longest continuous. We've ever been in another country other than when we lived in japan. Yeah i think so and that being said everyone here is really friendly. And we don't wanna leave. I mean the eighty five and sunny and paul has to do with it. But the i mean all that's great but the people as everyone who's traveled knows. Yeah the people make the travel experience what it is and from the day we got here even actually before we got here. I was looking for a babysitter hours in like this. Tamarind facebook group like so many people are sending me. Hey this person that person you know. I was like wow. Everyone seems really really helpful. And then we got here and not only are people helpful. But they're just overly nice and same thing like heff foster her watch in the ocean and we put a thing on that facebook group again and saying. Hey we lost his watch and all these people were tagging this other guy who like two weeks before said he founded apple. Watch wasn't the same one but you know just random strangers are like trying to help us get this. And that's just the strangers. That's not even the amazing people that we've really bond with probably a lot of ex- ex- goes yeah but all the all of the local costa rican people who are called tikos yep. They are so friendly from the guard. Who is at our condo. Who the hell on how who speaks very little english but is so kind and so lovely and is so engaged with our children like it's the point where like of course we're we're walking a lot more leaving we're walking and he says hello you know like pure vida and what's up my friend but then even in the car leaving and he wants to come over to the car and we put the windows down he talks to the kids. The kids pounds. He is just wonderful. And that's just one person mean our nannies. Here are costa rica and they are lovely and so wonderful and having vitus to a birthday party and bring the kids crafts in toys for them to play on just like welcome us into their lives and it's just yet people are great. It's really nice very welcoming community and yet to the point that wit sometimes wakes up in the morning and he goes. Where's on hell is on l. out at the You know out at the entrance. Where the fords. I don't know we'll run out there to go find on l. First thing in the morning. So yeah i i'm with you. Costa rica definitely a magical place. And i think that when it don't look at my most are looking for the audio heather is blatantly. My list is off. The table have looked at his list. And so i followed and wear his vision by number four. I mean i guess at this point rica on your list and you just tell my number four interest. My number four is one. That i'm not sure i was happy to have this on the list. Because i'm not sure. It's going to make your list or nine and this and australia are very similar to me. In the way that the people like to just enjoy life and that is ireland. Okay yeah i know what. That's a good thought. That's a really is not on my list kind of forgot we went. There wasn't the first gut reaction country to be on my list. But when i looked at a map usually you and i will look at a map just to just kind of spur some inspiration and i pulled up the map when i was going through and i was looking at europe like spain. People are pretty nice. Portugal was really cool. Italy annex saw ireland and mike ireland. Yeah like to me some of the experience. We have an ireland per personify friendliness. Like they just want to have a crack right crack meaning a good time so you know irish are known for wanting to just have a good time. There was plenty of nights. We'd be sitting in pubs. Music would start flowing. People were talking like again. There is really open. Friendly and enj- enjoying life

More than fifteen people to swarm a website selling pairs of the coveted easy boots and sneakers and use bots to bypass the system limited purchases to one per customer. Who are actually buying them.

As COVID-19 ravages the world, closing the digital divide is more critical than ever
"The digital divide continues to be. A massive problem made worse by the coronavirus. Pandemic things are especially bad in appalachia. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge sina is once again taking a look at this problem. Our series crossing the broadband divide and story in the latest package. Takes a look at the unique problems in appalachia a region with some of these slowest access speeds and accordingly lows incomes in the country with us to talk about. This is editor. Ray hodge welcome. Ray hey roger how are you so to kick things off. He gives us a sense of how big the broadband gap problem is in this area. I loved do that if we could actually find that information out in an accurate way and see. That's the that's the core problem. Isn't it the the big core problem here is that we don't have a full and complete rendering of the map of this digital divide because for many years. Now our our mapping has focused on deployment and not speed or actual access so while we have information about what census tracts have at least one connected household in them. We don't actually know. How many houses in each one of these census tracts is connected end accessing broadband much less whether or not they're getting the speeds that we normally classified as high speed broadband right and so we are looking at numbers that are probably severely. Undercounted the sec report which came out last month said that the number of folks who don't have access to broadband when down to fourteen point five million from about eighteen million a year ago most broadband experts. I think almost all broadband experts including the federal government and folks on the fcc all agree that that number is probably dramatically low and undercounted And and there's been a lot of issues you pointed out with the data behind these broadband maps that the fcc charge of some changes coming and we'll talk about that later later in the but let's let's get back to your story because you take a look at the appalachian region specifically you grew up in kentucky. You still live near louisville this curious. What broadband access has been like for you your family and how. It's changed over the years so we were based out of eastern kentucky. My family was and we've moved away from there. So i'm i'm what you would call the gas for the appalachian diaspora but i didn't get Internet in central kentucky until the same year. We got city water. Run out to our place somewhere around nine hundred ninety eight something like that and even though of course it was it was screeching -ly slow. Pardon the the the dialup pun. But yeah it's been intermittent right so it's taken that long to get it and where i live now in louisville i've got one gig fibre pay around sixty dollars a month. Which is the national average but there are still people out in the areas. Where i used to live in where you know. It may cost him one hundred dollars a month to get dsl equivalent speeds. It's insane the disparity there but growing up with This sort of Slow crawl towards access. It's remarkable to see what progress has been made because there is some but it's incredibly frustrating to see that after decades. This is still happening. These these problems are still happening. You're still dealing with a basic infrastructure and speeds. That are nearly unusable when it comes to like that so you talked a bit about the map and faulty data behind that but what are some of the other issues that has made broadbent hard to come by in this region so we've got a constant narrative going on where it's always sort of presented as a problem with hilly terrain and were unable to run lines or the the issue is often kind of bought and sold by that narrative. And that's really that's only one small part of the equation right. It's not just about hilly terrain because we've been able to make all kinds of technological advancements in these areas all kinds of construction industries like the mining and coal industry have no problem navigating hilly terrain. So you know. Mountains are not necessarily the thing that is always stopping Companies running out there a lot of the times it has to do with the fact that When it comes to infrastructure it has to do with the fact that it's not as profitable for for companies to run lines out into rural areas right even though they may be picking up subsidies and there was some fraud that had gone on in different rural regions By companies historically who claim to have all these people connected and then didn't so that's one part of it the infrastructure politics behind that the other part of it is that there are two digital heights right. There's one which is i. Don't have the lines. I'm divided from my lines. The other one is. I'm divided from the ability to pay for it which is actually the bigger digital divide across rural and urban areas.

Christen Brandt And Tammy Tibbetts Are Making a Difference
"Right now You're hanging out in new york Your working with is really interesting organization. That will dive into but This was not either of your original path or intention when you thought about. What you doing in your quote grown-up lives. Don't we sort of Start the story. Probably i guess it makes more sense with tammy and then we'll criminal ring you into the conversation. Then we'll just sorta like dive into the whole mix. Tammy i know one of the things. I've heard repeat over and over in different. Conversations is that you grew up as a kid. Shy how curious. I know you said that. What i'm curious about is how did actually show him in your. You know what's funny as after this conversation. I actually have an interview with the editor in chief of my high school newspaper. The viking vibe which is to be the editor in chief bub. So it's like a full circle moment. But that takes me back to. When i was seventeen when i was in high school. I dreaded speaking up raising my hand in class. Standing up in front of people to speak was my worst nightmare. And i really found myself expression and some confidence in writing which is why i was drawn to journalism and decided that when i went off to college i would be a journalism major with the dream of one day being a magazine editor so senior year of high school. There is the tradition of the superlatives in the yearbook. Many of us can remember. That and i was voted in a fairly large senior class of a thousand some students. I was the one who is most shot and i remember posing for that picture in the yearbook. They asked me to stand in the lobby of the high school. And there was this hiller and they asked me to hide behind it and pretend as if i was just scared of the world and in my head i was like this is a terrible thing to be known as most shy. This is ridiculous. But i went along with it and i just silently promised myself that i would make this most shy title a great irony one day and i would be anything but and i would go off to college and i would go where no one knew me and become the young woman i wanted to be. So that's kind of where everything changed for. Me is when i began my journey as a first generation college student. I mean i'm curious also whether soc is interesting word and it's a loaded word and it's also really impress ice word these days right because you know it. It often speaks to this spectrum that ranges from severe social anxiety to introversion. And what's interesting to me about that. And i'm curious about how you experience it is you know we. We have looked at generation -ly Shy or introverted was the functional equivalent of broken. There's something wrong with you. the has to be fixed. I think susan canes quiet hope and so many people's eyes including me. Because i'm definitely more than the introverts side of the spectrum and really made i think a lot of people wake up to the fact that is there. There's this sort of like spectrum and it's not there's nothing wrong with being on the more introverted side of it you know unless it manifest in exile or things that actually stop you from living life. You want live. That's why i'm curious how you actually experience it like. Did you experience this as just this. Just the way i am. And i'm actually pretty good with it but for the social reactions to it or was it actually more of leaning towards like a social anxiety type of thing for you so i am an introvert and i think that is different from being shy and a christians and extrovert so i we complement each other. Really well An introversion has actually been a great strength in this year of twenty twenty. You know it's made me very well equipped for quarantine and and given me a lot of resilience But as a kid as a teenager being shy. I was really afraid of judgement. That other people would make me. And what i had to say and i no longer identify as shy because i i think i realized that i had to make my voice matter and stand up for something and when you do reframing and recognize that you can push yourself to To speak up and be a leader to serve others. That was my way of overcoming. The fear of Other people's judgment was i socially social anxiety would label it as that Because i did have friends. Who like the studious. Quiet bunch who. I had good relationships win. But i never went to a school. Dance a Ironic we can talk about this later. But i i. I worked for seventeen magazine before starting. She's the first. I would be part of a magazine that i never felt cool enough to read because i didn't feel like my clothes were stylish. I didn't wear makeup as a teenager. So i think those i think my insecurity came from what now. In retrospect piece it together this way of seeing these images of what a cool confident girl looked like. And i didn't think that aligned with who i who i was at the time.

The Queen's Gambit (Netflix Mini-Series 2020)
"Still in their top five I remember correctly. Is the queen's gambit. It was number one don't know where it is. Right now. I still think it's the number one show streaming right now on the streamer, but it is about the orphan who becomes A chess Phanom. And she learns chess from the maintenance man downstairs in the orphanage and her life. Just kind of goes from there, and I'm keeping it purposely broad, cause I so want you and I've been I've been guilty of Oversharing and I want to I want you guys to Kind of unfold the show for yourself because that's that's part of the magic of it, because it's so gosh darn good. We talked about it last week. Alexis is back and you watched it a cz. Well, I watched everything. Jeez, I could not stop watching it. And they binged it in four days. Completely just watched the whole thing. It's about what we did. Yeah, I'm with you. Oh, man. It is so good. Now I don't know much about chess. So I think that if you do love chess, you'll even get more in terms of the moves because they really had a really cool way of showing how they do it with the shadows of the ponds and the different You know pieces and then the boards. You know how they do the different moves. And what did the bishop do? And you know all of that, And there's all of these different ways to come at it. You know, different theories and thiss guy does it this way, and he always moves this first and so That was kind of lost on me. But it just It was such a great story and a great reminder that if you want to be the best at what you dio, it takes a lot of hard work a lot of dedication. And also trying around it. Right and remembering the people around. You mean I think about LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Serena Williams. Now, of course, this is in the sports world. Tom Brady, You know, like you are a goat. You really do need to work. You know, they're not out partying and having fun, And that's kind of the same case with the in the Queen's gambit, she Beth. She's just really focused on her goal of being the best chess player. I love that she didn't really focus on her gender, but the media did. And but it's still a hard world to be in when it's all it's all men like, generally older sixties in the fifties and sixties, So you know at the time it's during the Cold War. There's already tensions between the U. S and the Soviet Union already at that time, and then the best chess players come from the Soviet Union. So it was really reflective of the time to mean just in a chess game, So I really like that. I like the full circle aspect of the story toward the end. Again. I don't want to give too much away like you, said Jace. But itjust they answer a lot of questions that you may have as you're watching it and satisfying answers. I see what Yeah, yeah. Don. Where are you? I am just finished Episode four They're going to attack a lot into each episode, though. I mean, even by the end of the first one, you're like, Whoa. This is like a full movie. I just watched her. That's so true, Don. Yeah. In the anime pack a lot in. I mean so much. It's like the opposite of what they did with blind manner, not enough material that they snatched into. Ah, really long boring. Story That was way too many episodes. This is very efficient and I love the writing. You get to know her and what she's all about, Really? Not necessarily through the dialogue, but what they show you. Yes. Great writing, Thie. Other thing. It's the fashion one. Everything she wore. This will be nominated for costume design. Don't you think? Absolutely, without a doubt, the production design and the wardrobe. They're They're co stars. They're they're absolute co stars, and she carries it. She carries it so well, those clothes you know that old saying the the clothes don't wear you. You wear the clothes. She wears those clothes girl. I mean, she capital. W wears out, though, that wardrobe and Well, I just want to be her and Lex. I don't know if you felt this way, said this to dawn last week in the most complimentary way possible. I was sad. I was sad at the conclusion not because of the conclusion, but because I wanted more time with Beth, I interesting. I don't often have that reaction to characters. Um, you know, like Star Wars. I just, You know, I want to hang out with Ray and I want to know what's happening and all that stuff. But I really I'm sad that I'm not going to be invited in her world anymore. Well, that's what I was going to ask you because it does look like maybe a season two is in the works. Really? Yeah. There at least floating the idea around what it could be. Will they bring it back for a second season s wires asking that and It's not renewed. Of course, there's no news about that. But this next season would dive into her love life, her family history, that type of thing. I had the opposite reaction. I feel like this miniseries. It was perfect. In the way that they told it. I don't know if I need to know more. I love I love how it ended, and just That's great. Yeah, I'm not saying I want it because they'll mess it up, right? That's what I'm worried about. Yeah, I It's like big little lives. You know, the first was based on a book and that was near perfect. And then you went back, and you basically forced the author to create another story in a short amount of time. And you know, it wasn't a natural process. You gave the A writer. A hard deadline. I don't think you know. Not all. Not all creatives work well with that s O this. Yeah, but I was Muchas. I'm sad for that desire to him, Not with her. I would rather have that than an unsatisfying Sequel Hard to beat that this is Yeah, because this is just a compliment. I I miss her. I want to know what she's doing, but I'll rely on my imagination for that, and I'm fine. It's just It's just a huge compliment to the writer of the novel into the two the creatives behind this miniseries. They did such a good job that they made me want, Maura and that Whatmore could you ask for with a creative endeavor? You know Jerry Seinfeld, No one to get off the stage. They're off the stage and I miss her because she's so freaking cool. I want to have with her. I want her to be my friend. And then I want to steal all of her clothes. Be nude. That's not nice. Other things, didn't you guys? Yeah, No kidding. Just gorgeous. Benny Watts. The character who the guy who plays many Watts, Thomas Brody Stang stur. Yeah, He's that kid from love, Actually, Yeah. Grew up guys. He looks exactly the same thing just looks like someone pulled them from his head. Hold his legs and to stretch them a little bit. Was he also in finding Neverland with Johnny Depp? Yes, I think so. The writer of Peter Pan. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but it just looks like someone stretched him. You had put a mustache auto. And then the other kid is from Harry Potter. Yes, friend of her selling. Is Perry's cousin, His awful cousin that he lives with. Yeah, deadly Douglas. Yeah, and he's the other person and I just like I said this to dawn. I just like that the old you know, one of the themes that I realized after the fact is really about loneliness, you know, Beth the character and we're talking queen's gambit as we wrap it up here on Netflix. You know, it's a great lesson where sometimes you just see what's right in front of your face. And Beth did that. Beth was guilty of thinking that she was very alone. She was on ly kind of looking within just a few inches of her face. But if she just looked around She just looked a little bit to her left and right. She realized she really wasn't alone. And I think that's a good universal lesson for all of us that sometimes when we do feel very isolated and alone where we really are not, itjust takes Takes a moment to look around. And Beth really was Beth her whole life and, understandably, so she felt alone. But she really never wasn't. She always had people that was rooting for her, but she just never internally felt that way. Andi. I've found that fascinating to examine in that show. So the Queen's gambit everybody on Netflix If you haven't it, it's

This is something that has has changed the way that black women specifically will feel if they can bring their authentic Selves to the trail. Actively right Rigor and ABC News contributor.

Making A Murderer: The key piece of evidence in the case of Steven Avery
"Of every criminal case, every case in the law, really? There is a key. There is a piece of evidence so critical that the case itself turns on it. In the case of Theresa Holbox murder, the key is literally the key and the key to understanding it is to understand that everything making a murderer has told you about it. Is wrong. I'm Dan O'Donnell and this is rebutting a murderer. The most vulnerable piece of evidence to attack is the key. And that's because of the evidence the state presented so the key isn't found until they're been repeated searches of Avery's trailer off that was highly suspicious. But overriding that is the DNA of Steven Avery on the key. First of all, Avery's attorney, Kathleen Zellner, isn't telling the truth about how the key was found. There weren't repeated searches of Avery's trailer at all. There was one and the key was found during the first search of the bookcase next to Avery's bed. The key was found in on November. 5th 2005. The day that Theresa Hall box wrapped for was found in the Avery Scrapyard on investigative team began searching the Avery property for Hall box body. Yet, as the Wisconsin Court of Appeals noted in its decision against Avery, investigators never performed a full search of Avery's trailer that day. Special investigator Tom Foss. Bender testified that most of the investigators in the trailer had already been working for 12 hours or more and exhaustion and safety issues were becoming factors that could affect the searchers ability to locate and collect evidence. In addition, there was a horrendous rain storm going on that created a risk of evidence being destroyed or lost as officers went in and out of the trailer to get equipment. Thus, the officers were focused on looking for the type of evidence that would be most at risk of being destroyed under those conditions. Boss Bender testified that in debriefing the officers that night, he was telling people we are not done in that house. Boss, Bender testified. As of Saturday night, the trailer was still part of my scene. This is an ongoing search. The search, however, was suspended that night. Next day. Investigators did indeed enter Avery's trailer, but not to search on Ly to obtain items that they had noticed the night before and listed in reports, most notably Avery's guns. Technicians from the Wisconsin State crime lab, then went in to swab for DNA but did not perform any sort of search of the trailer. The following day. Investigators entered the trailer again but never entered Avery's bedroom at all. They went in, only to get the serial number from Avery's computer. Only the next day November, 8th did the search that was suspended on November 5th resume, and it was during that search of Avery's bedroom, the first search of Avery's bedroom. That the key was found the officer who found it, Sergeant Andrew Colburn testified that this was the first time any investigators had gone room by room through the trailer looking for evidence. And that they were instructed specifically to collect the large number of pornographic photos of Avery's ex wife and girlfriend that he had kept in his bookcase. Colburn said he was frustrated and disgusted and having to sort through all of those pornographic pictures, and he slammed other items He found in the bookcase back into it while he was searching it. Because he had pulled the bookcase out from the wall to get better access to its contents. He picked it up to move it back when he was finished. At that point, the key fell out of the back. Photos of the bookcase submitted as evidence showed that the back panel was loose from the interior, making it easy for a key concealed in the bookcase toe fall out onto the floor when the bookcase was moved. Making a murderer has claimed for three years now that the key was found on Lee after repeated intense searches of the bedroom acclaim it has Zellner make again but it simply isn't true. It was found during the first search of the bedroom and the first search of the bookcase. Elders claim that Steven Avery's DNA a found on that key was planted is equally dubious. To test this theory. She hires forensic consultant Dr Karl Reich, who naturally immediately suspects that the evidence is planted. The thing that suspicious about the DNA is the quantity of it because she said it was touch DNA. And Dr Reich felt just looking at it that there was too much DNA on the key to have just been the result of handling yet again. Zellner conducts a rather unscientific scientific experiment to show that it would be impossible for the amount of DNA the state says Avery left on the key to be left by mere touch, eh? Identical vehicle was obtained. And an identical key was obtained to try and reproduce what the state came up with in terms
Oregon becomes first state to legalize magic mushrooms as more states ease drug laws in 'psychedelic renaissance'
"Tuesday was also a good night for more relaxed drug laws. Voters in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey in South Dakota, all legalized recreational marijuana. South Dakota also approved medical marijuana, and so did Mississippi. In Oregon voters approved some of the biggest drug policy rollbacks in the nation, They overwhelmingly approved an initiative to decriminalize all drugs. That includes cocaine, heroin and meth doesn't mean that these drugs are now legal just that if you're caught with small amounts, you probably won't go to jail or again also became the first state to legalize magic mushrooms but only used in licensed therapy settings here to talk about these measures, and what they mean is Herman Lopez, senior correspondent for Fox. Focused on criminal justice, guns and drugs High Hi. Thanks for having me. Well, have you let's begin with Oregon? And why did voters overwhelmingly, it appears approved this measure. So for years now, I think we've heard particularly from Democratic politicians this call to end the war on drugs and what that really means For a lot of people based on the support for this initiative, at least Is ending the criminal justice system's role in the war on drugs like making this a public health issue, something that's dealt with that and addiction treatment in hospitals and so on, but not through prison and jail and that Is essentially what drove this initiative not which not only decriminalizes drugs, but also puts redirects some state money to more treatment. And I guess it's a particular problem in drugs or problem everywhere. But Oregon has a particularly bad problem. I mean, pretty much every play every state in the US at this point, unfortunately, has some level of drug problem with the opioid epidemic and also just alcohol, misuse and addiction is really skyrocketed over the past few years. So unfortunate. I don't think Oregon's alone where Oregon was particularly bad, I think is that actually had pretty low levels of funding for addiction treatment on and that's one of the things that this initiative now seeks to fix. But it still is a NY Eyebrow razor, right When you see the headlines decriminalized all drugs. Do you think that this could change the drug conversation and the rest of the country? Yeah. I mean, it's toughly eyebrow raising. I mean, 10 years ago, Ah, no state in the country had legalized marijuana. And now some states are decriminalizing all drugs now granted marijuana legalization is allow sales, which, as you mentioned, this won't allow. But Yes, it's it's a big step and activists. I've talked to them, especially since they saw so much support in Oregon are hoping to like, Take this two more states across the country to really give way to that slogan, too. And the war on drugs. Well, let's talk about this other measure in or again to legalize certain uses of psilocybin magic mushrooms. Tell us about that. So there have been some studies showing that if you used these kind of like psychedelics and supervised setting, so there would be somebody like a trained facilitator, guiding you through essentially a hallucinogenic trip. Um, it can help some people he studies have been small, but they've helped people with PTSD, for example, with end of life anxiety. Some of the earlier studies were about people who have like terminal cancer and are really anxious. Like I think most of us would be about dying and It really helps essentially put thes people at ease to help them that there's lots of Interesting things in the research showing like some people find the spiritual connection. Some people just their brain to start thinking about these issues differently, regardless of what it is. It seems to work. And that's essentially what organ is now going to try to do is like in the supervised setting, so it's not going to be like a medical marijuana dispensary where you can go home with a bag of pot or whatever. But if you in the supervised sentence, you will be guarded. The really stripped you will essentially be able to use Psychedelics legally. And it's only mushrooms, though right, not LSD, or is it both? It's just so sad that that's what most of this research has focused on for lots of reasons, but So both the American Psychiatric Association and the Oregon Psychiatric Physicians Association opposed this measure. Why So I think one of the things that makes this one A bit tricky for medical folks in particular, is like we already have a process nationally for approving medications. That's the FDA regulatory process, like things go through clinical trials, and they're eventually approved. And unlike medical marijuana, say, 25 years ago. They're these drugs actually are already on clinical trial like that are already on that track. It's possible that regardless what Oregon did hear these medications could have been approved for national youth in a few years, and they're so likely to the FDA still overseeing those clinical trials. We're moving along. So I think that's that's a big obstacle here is like to put this in front of state voters. It's certainly an unusual way to approve medications, and one of the reasons that happened with marijuana was largely because The FDA was stifling research. But in this case that's not happening, So I think the argument is a bit different this time around. Okay. And then, as I mentioned earlier, several states passed recreational marijuana use and medicinal use. So where are we now across the country when it comes to legalizing weed. So 15 States have now legalized weed. Ah, and they've legalized sales. DC has on ly legalized possession, meaning it's kind of like a equalization model where you can't be arrested. But you also just don't even face a fine. But D. C has not legal ourselves who was blocked by Congress from doing so.
