Yilmaz nets hat trick as Turkey beat Netherlands 4-2

"Let's welcome in craig. Burley julian laurent and moreno guys. Plenty of world cup. Qualifiers to discuss. Let's start with the pick of the day from wednesday in group g turkey a four two victory over the netherlands bracket mouse with the hat trick. Telenovela scored as well david class in luke. Diong the goal scores for the dutch memphis to pie missing a penalty late. See this was a crazy game to come out more impressed with turkey or disappointed in the dutch. Oh definitely disappointed in the dodge. Listen to the tux. Four shorts and four goals. Something something crazier so clearly. The game plan was to keep tight and try and catch jonah. And so for them. It was a perfect game for the dutch yes. They scored two goals away from home. Yes they got. Apparently but all of these things were when it was too late and with a possession. The dutch with the ball particularly in the attack in the did absolutely nothing with so going forward in some respects. They a blunt. Clearly we useful goals. You got problems at the back. Alley pre pandemic. I feel like we were talking about. The dutch is a potential favorite. Dr course at least for the euro's things have certainly changed under frank gore and you just mentioned the name that changed at all frankly war he gets a hold of this national team and it's my goodness this is going to possess the ball to that they're gonna pass the ball sideways and back but when it comes to being efficient in the attack well there ineffective. This is a team that in the first half. Yeah they had all the possession in the world but did nothing with it as stephen. Just alluded to it and then defensively. Not enough for incision not enough work in one v one situations almost prize that the turkish team was actually getting after an attacking them when there were opportunities to do so. This team has all sorts of flaws. But i think the biggest flaw comes from the top frank gore. I just have to say. I have no idea how he got his hands on this national team job and to me it looks like a guy who dosing match the personnel that he has available to him on the field. This team is all over the place

They went three to two advanced. Four three on aggregate a bombing with a couple of goals. Kieran tierney As well jill's. I'll start with you. Just how big was this for arson to advance the round of sixteen in europa league the result of course and qualifying but also the fact that they came from behind. He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight. Plus also the quantification the momentum before the game leicester on sunday and also of course the two goes for obama. Young and the to assists for psychiatry. And i think we need to find you. Were to qualify an amazing player. Bouquets in one thousand nine dong cossack is he. I think he's that best plass sevi- mono people say about me on gets the goals and they rely on. His goal is true. But i think when i watch young suck apply. I think he's got a lot look at his temperament. Look at the way he plays the game. You can tell. Light loves playing football. He's got smile on his face. He's a choose infectious at the training ground when he's playing but talent wise he's got a wonderful less or you can goes pass. Players phone can go either way. Turn the pace again. He works back. He's got a lot really. I mean he must be a manager's dream robbo arsenals best player. he's right up. Two games in the corrected goes for obama yang and that was the difference between the two sides been fieger. I thought place nice football today. But they had no cutting edge going forward whereas cutting edge liquid trying to break off sidelines. Saka was coming in it and those little round the corner obama gang trying to running behind whereas been fake. If all that good fly times just had no cutting edge shocker arsenal just getting it down today just but last questions about about soccer. Yes he in my mind. He is arsenal's best and most important and ask those third goal goal. That takes them to the next round sums it up one more the defender a couple of crossovers defended doesn't know whether he's going to go. Righto left come back onto onto left and picks a fight bullets. Who just onsides 'cause on maybe man because of his two goals headlines but but for me also is a vote soccer and so much of their good plea comes from from his unpredictability from just clever. He is on the ball and for me without question. That teams suffers most without without saka more than anybody else other

So it was tough to make the call. But at the same time, no right after the Super Bowl in April, I went back and held for 10 weeks and long term care facility and I think that's really where Realized the impact in the burden Kobe was putting not only on the patient, but on everybody who was working there and their kids and their family and all the sacrifices. I think that's when I kind of realized that for me it was a little bit of a nonsense to you know, across the border, Go play football, and I felt like my role this year was to try to help and to try to be In line with my my conviction, and also that five years from now I can look back at 2020 and be like, Hey, I made the right call, and now I can be a physician and live with my decision.

"And then at that point he would go home spend some time with his his girlfriend or he would go and begin training training or going and doing zoom calls with with the chiefs and he would do this to three days a week. He wants to be clear that he didn't do this five days a week like the other like fulltime staff. This is two to three days a week that he would help out. But still even being there for two of those shifts. I just saw like it was a lot of work to be able to put a full day in at a long term healthcare facility then do training and then go home and have to spend time in and want to spend time with your loved ones. You mentioned earlier. That laurent was helping covert patients. Spend time with their loved ones via ipad. And in your piece there was a really powerful example of that with older male patient. Can you tell us about that. Laurent told a story about how he had brought an ipad in with I i don't know if his wife or his children to be able to sit down and be able to talk to them. I had the chance to facetime. A family of a patient with the patient and that patient was able to see for the first time somebody that he actually care about and they were laughing and then that laugh slowly went through a cry. Because it's a tough time. It also calls back to one of the reasons for getting into the medical field in. That's that laurent needs that human interaction. He's a that is so important so for him to witness that human interaction just a simple moment a simple hello. How're you doing human like that. That's that was so important element he. He told me when he went home that day to go to that apartment to do his To decompress down he broke down because he just he couldn't believe like we take it for granted. You know we take it for granted those little moments to be able to stare. Sit in front of someone and have a conversation and he was looking at this people's they the patients is they. Don't get this ever. It was a big moment for him in just a realization of like no matter how much stress you go through in the day. It's those little moments in those little gifts. He's able to help provide that.

The end of his affair with his lover karen but his relationship problems were the least of his worries. He had spent the previous two decades lying to his friends and family about being the doctor. For years he'd lived in fear that he might one day be exposed as a fraud. He had discouraged people from asking questions about his career claiming that he preferred to keep his personal and professional lives separate but the deception was getting more and more difficult to maintain sometime that december. Jean claude's wife laurent's ran into a woman whose husband actually worked at the world health organization. She mentioned a christmas party for employees and their families to laurent's asking if she planned to attend with sean claude. According to this woman florence look disturbed by the question. She murmured this time. I really should get annoyed with my husband. It's not clear whether florins confronted jong claude. About the party but either way. She was likely having doubts about his reasons for keeping her and the children away from his workplace. This wasn't her only cause for suspicion around that time jean. Claude served as a member of his children's school board shortly before christmas vacation. The board precedent. Trying to contact. Sean claude at work to discuss an issue with one of the teachers. He tried to look up. Sean claude's name in the world health organization directory but couldn't find it a few days later. He ran into florence on the street and mentioned it to her. She said she talked to jean-claude about it though it's clear if she actually confronted him even if laurent's wasn't starting to ask questions john claude knew he would soon be discovered if these close calls didn't expose him is dwindling. Bank accounts would a few days before christmas of nineteen ninety two. He faced even more questions. His former mistress quran invited him to come visit her and paris although he was probably no longer sleeping with her they had tried to maintain a friendship not long after they broke up she'd even given him nine hundred thousand francs to invest on her behalf. Secretly jean claude had simply taken her money and spend it instead. The two had a pleasant dinner together at first but at the end of the night. Karen dropped a bombshell. She wanted her money back as always john. Claude stayed calm in the moment. He promised that he'd get her money and give it to her. Shortly after the new year he told her he was attending a dinner party around that time and invited her to come along and pick up her check. Then karan agreed.

"We welcome you back. Our is live and underway busy busy I our. Thirty minutes ago we learned that the first SEC game has been postponed of this twenty twenty campaign it will be. Rescheduled Vanderbilt Missouri scheduled for this Saturday in Columbia. Now, be December twelfth. We'll talk to coach drink in thirty minutes and get his reaction to that. So here we go more phone calls in a minute a lot of fans unhappy from every aspect of the winners and losers speaking of the latter. Let's talk about the Lsu Tigers two weeks ago Scott Rabble a came on. Wasn't ready to hit the panic button. Everything was calm. Scott's gotcha very scopes. Scott Seen It all before. Scott. Have you seen anything quite like the ending of Saturday's game? Good afternoon how are you? and got to the NFL Yeah that's that's you mentioned I'm kind of reminded of the and it's not a good time Lsu that ninety nine, Game Alabama when just food he tried to run the ball down like. John elway. Pin Wheeled in the air came up a yard short and and they you know they they threw the ball and the they did it. They didn't score. So yeah, it was. It was reminds me of you not good times for Lsu but you know. I gotta say the way lsu played Saturday. On defense but also on offense failing to convert a third down there really is kind of justice. They didn't really deserve to win that game I, mean they they you know they pulled it out and they would've pulled it out there. It would have been a win that covered up a lot of a lot of issues. So what? I don't know if it's safe to go outside I. Mean I know I know the version fortunately escaped the worst of the storm the other day was farther to the West but I mean what? What what is the buzz in your town especially both Pallini and and I mean three games in he seems like he's on the tip of everyone's tongue is it fair? Oh. Sure? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean this is the this is the defense that You know this change Dave Randall left defensor longtime defensive coordinator WHO's hard under? Les. Miles. You know the several years ago he left me the head coach at Baylor. So they had to hire someone like forced out or anything. So hopefully knew who was here under miles and those first three great years in the Mouse Oh, five Oh, six Oh, seven the end up with a national championship and you know just it hasn't worked at me. This questions is Bo behind the Times is not adjusted to those are some great defensive back then with Clinton Dorsey and Tyson Jackson and and you know you're a great players like that got a little on Landry secondary great players like that, and you kind of wonder you know the Adjusting but. It's just been Y- coaches you're on himself is trying to put it all on him and the coaches and they got a coach better. You said that, Saturday, after the game you set it on his press conference today, they just lost followed. They're they're good players on the Stevens, their high NFL draft pick on the defense Derek Stanley Jacoby Stevens to real cox the transfer for. North. Dakota. State people said he might have been a first round draft pick. Had He come? Out and said of transferring Ali Gay Defensive End they lost a lot of great players, but this shouldn't be this bad and aurons You know famously said, then the all season, the defense look better in practice than at any time last year, and obviously that is not the case and they gave up eight plays a twenty yards of more. Missouri averaged almost nine yards per play and five and a half yards per carry it and it just that's just not. That's just not winning football and worst of all they all she just looked. I saw gene gene Chizik said after the game. So you. Look, like on Defense Soft and lost, and Lsu looks like both unfortunately for them. By, the way everything you just got through saying you could replicate for three or four other SEC schools except none of them are the defending champions like Lsu. Scott we're three games in I. Mean we all know that and I'm not sure how much you can value. A. Win Over Vanderbilt Right now considering the state of that program. But as you look ahead I, mean you don't look any farther than this weekend against Florida. LSU will need to score seventy points to keep up with them. Immediate? Looks. That way and I'm not a betting Guy Pa, my government I think I've looked at the over maybe go for that Florida's defense looks pretty challenge to Alabama wins and gives up forty eight points to stole miss. But the the disturbing serving big frail issue. Yeah. Everyone's having trouble defensively No question. Do you wonder if that lack of spring football or the proper time to prepare in the off season has hurt them But you know you look at that once you give six, hundred, twenty, three guys and the Mississippi State, history has been dreadful offense against Arkansas and Kentucky the last two weeks Missouri scored like I think three touchdowns combined the first Games averaging like fifteen points a game against Alabama Tennessee and it just go wild lsu just look great. I mean that's that's the part. That's that's extra disturbing prelates pans and like the lsu fans always. Always wanted this offense obviously, they complained for years and rightly. So by the the plotting less miles offense, but there's a lot of pride in the school, the the the the billy cannon is the star up in you know and and now Joe Borough and players like that. But the tried is always been the defense, the Chinese bandits, Tommy Tests Inova Win Dorsey Laurent Landry mentioned, Patrick, Peterson, Taran Taran Matthew, and what else he doesn't play Great Defense I. Think this is this is like a core value of lsu's program that is not being being held a lived up to, and it's it's very troubling Tila lsu probably would take a little less offense for some better defensive as. Scott Realistically I mean this weekend looks like a long shot I would have to say I mean still Alabama. Out There Auburn out there. South, Carolina am I mean everyone knows the schedule? I mean before the season some might be hard to win them all but maybe maybe eight or nine. Where's the sliding scale right now? Ball I don't know it's sliding really. Really. Bad way down the hill. You know a lot of hills here in Baton Rouge but he found it. It's sledding Hill that way. Down Victory Hill Yes for the team marches down normally before the Games by Tigers stadium is not vitriol right now I I like everybody else said like the six games else who's GonNa win and four games where the season's going to be decided Alabama Auburn Florida and Texas a&M, and right now I don't think he can after South Carolina just banning by the same score Lsu did Arkansas has played. She's gotTa go to they'll South Carolina, comes here in in two weeks I don't I don't think. There's any Sherwin left for L. Share on the schedule I don't think they're gonNA go one nine but I think right now you just gotTa. Look at what can you do to have a have a winning season they're still good players There's on this team in town they lost a lot from last year obviously, but you know the they've got to. Change, the things coach today coach talk today about simplifying both offense and defense. Again remember the offense was Owen on third down Saturday that's a pretty bad step to although this court forty-one points should have been enough to win, but it's still some really great players on the House Brennan. Has Not Been, Joe Borough, been very good. You know he's had over three hundred yards passing game over four hundred yards Saturday tariffs, marshalls been tremendous hit two, hundred, thirty, five, yard service and three touchdowns Saturday. So this, this isn't good players in the team, but they just got to get tougher and and find a way to grind out a win somewhere and and this is not entirely similar fall I gotta say from twenty. Dissimilar from twenty seventeen she lost at home Detroit and went to Florida the next week and they won the game I'm not saying I'm not predicting she win. But this have the size, a lot of field of that when they kind of looked tougher and more determined and they found a way to win and they've never looked back games on order on, they're gonna be hard pressed to avoid doing that obviously late this week. He had I wouldn't call it a charm to existence because now that you mentioned the troy game and there had been some ups and downs but certainly coming off the best year ever how is he handling the defeats? A He's he's trying to take a lot of the blame on himself and deflected from his team Not exactly deflecting from the assistant coaches said, he's talked about, hey, on defensive we just have one coverage and one one formation. Let's do that. Let's and you said. Some things on offense too. I think he's kind of talking about Scott Lenihan, the new guy, a passing game coordinator WHO and Red Zone specialists who take the place of Joe Brady who who was on the staff last year and of course talking about Botha? Lenient? Coach, and he said something telling today I thought that you said, you know the most Ryan. The defense but he he's he's going to you know be checked in on every formation every plan that they use you know as a defensive line coach that's his forte he he's going to be I think maybe a little more hands on with the formations they use and the and the and the coverages, and but some of that are doing well, he's Got Thrown out I think that. This is the defense he wanted this is he talking about being wardrobe four three and they've got a great. Turn of Russia there plus six turnover ratio they're doing very well at that the they're causing some some big plays in that in that regard and turnovers just can't get off the field and can't Can't stop people and giving up a big big yards on the ground, and then these these huge places.

A Simple Equation to Help Kids Love Math

"We're going to the equivalent of flipping to the back of the book to look right at the answers because we know back by listening to this math, you had to overcome some anxieties I bet of your. Yes. So let's get right to our takeaways and number one. Don't let your math anxiety hold your kids back. Nothing's -iety. As you mentioned is a real phenomenon all over the world and it's pretty clearly related to how we teach math in school things like timed practice and memorization and high stakes testing and oh my gosh, I'm getting. Hot Flashes and sweaty palms, just thinking about tests. Can here's the really upsetting thing that math anxiety it's not equal opportunity. That's right. It's tied to stereotypes race, and especially gender research shows that mothers and Preschool teachers who are overwhelmingly women they can pass that feeling onto their kids especially to their girls but there is some good news children are not born with math anxiety. All right. It's passed onto them. So I think that's why we have to check out selves in when we're talking about math this. was kind of a surprise for me because I thought that you know if my kid had a problem with math I could bond with him by saying, Hey, you know it was tough for me too but actually rose Marie says saying, I. Don't like Math I can't do math that will get conveyed to your children and the solution. Instead we need to reframe math yet rosemary says think about the fun activities that can back up and reinforce what they're learning. In school math is very much an integral part of your life do you love music i? Do I love to sing. All right. If you love music, then you love math do like to cook and Bake I love to cook and be okay. Then you love math because she can't do music and you can't cook and bake without math so I can't cook or bake really and I definitely cannot sing but I love baseball for example, and my boys. And I we talk about baseball statistics all the time. So what's important Rosemary says is recognizing math as part of many things that we like doing together exactly and so to see more about how adults can we've math into our everyday moments of life even with really little kids you and I and our producer Laurent Mickey visited Really Special Preschool new first reported this episode. This is back in two thousand and nineteen when we could freely move throughout the world. Watch US light today. This is the center for Early Childhood Education. It's our research preschool at Eastern Connecticut State University. The lobby has this giant, super, realistic oaktree yet which I climbed inside. Very cool. We should also say about a third of the kids at this school speak Spanish at home. That's right and at the preschool, we sat down with one of the lead researchers. Suda. Swami not done and she helped us understand a lot more about how to grow children who love math the minute we say math with think of the big picture you know Bagel theorems beore geometry concepts instead swimming not says thinks small she's a professor in Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State and her special focus is on early math learning and Sudha And her colleagues have done lots of research to see what kinds of childhood experiences lead to better performance in math later on and one of their answers makes up our second takeaway take number to talk about math take this really ordinary moment you asked them to put their books away and and say, doesn't fit the shelf. So why disadvantage fit? Maybe it's the book is too tall too big Suda says you're actually talking about math process it's problem solving. Yeah, and we heard lots of this by the way math talk at the preschool. As the duck fit in there too. He did fit when he was standing up. So you decided to lay down does he fit now? That's Amy Lopez the lead teacher for the toddler. It's a sunny room with a cozy reading corner. There's a play kitchen and blocks, and you're the center of the room. There's this table and amy sitting with the children they're building together with magnetized calls, which are these colorful plastic blocks with different shapes that stick together and the little plastic farm animals, and one of the kids is kind of putting together a house. You're using triangles and squares unique. Naming the shapes in both English and in Spanish. When we played this tape for Rosemary she said what I heard. There is the teacher using descriptive math language and that is so key for children to understand math concepts. You can't understand the concepts without the language. Yeah, and aim is not building the box for the kids cheese actually making observations kind of narrating their thoughts in real time the more blocks you on the longer dad's Cohen I notice that when you added more your line got longer and longer when she said Moore blocks to make it longer. Longer is a complex word for children and they need to hear that language and they need to hear that language in a very concrete way. She wasn't even afraid to use really technical words like when this little boy was trying to make a little corral standup. Now you can put them all around the perimeter all around the edge Caribbean or.

How I Built Resilience: Songe LaRon of Squire

"Hey everyone and welcome to how I built this resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during lists very disruptive moment and today my conversation with Song Laurent. The CO founder of Squire Squire is an APP that connects barbershops with clients. Song founded Squire 2016 with his best friend Dave Salvant to modernize. Modernize the barbershop experience, and nowadays their APP is not only booking appointments, but also helping barbershop stay open if they're allowed to a spoke Asong a few days ago, about Squire and the barbershop industry but I. Sam let me know that he actually wasn't at home. I should mention a you are actually in an office of a barbershop right now in Connecticut. which you can, you can hear of it behind you. Know, that's fine. That's fine. So so first of all our our barbershops in Connecticut. Open yes. Yes, they are. They are open. I, Think Connecticut is probably faced three or phases where barbershops other service based businesses are open, so yeah, they're. They're open for business. And what's the protocol near the barber's wearing masks and the customers? Wearing asks Barbara's wear masks. Customers were masks There's no waiting in the barbershop anymore. Customers will have to wait outside in their car until their appointment time is is ready, and there's also no social distancing between chairs. They spread out the share, so they're. They're know they're servicing less fewer customers. As a result, our say that Barbara's are probably one of the few. Types of professionals that are very well equipped in this in this new environment, because they actually go to school for this in order to get a barbershop Barbara License, you have to study disinfecting and taken different precautions, so you know unlike. Maybe waiters or other types of people who are providing services I think Barbara's are one of the few that actually already had to get licensed and go through education to be prepared for this environment, so I'm a big proponent of of our shot of your opening. I'm in California and now barber shops are closed and I have to be honest like I'm a little I'm still nervous about I. would still be nervous about going. You know I've I've given myself to very bad haircuts over the last six months with with clippers and my kids do but what I mean. When you go now to barbershop. What are they doing? Everyone's everyone's wearing a mask, but are they disinfecting the seats between customers and you know? Disinfecting. have to disinfect tools between every. Bet should be doing man now. They're also disinfecting of seating area. Many of them are using disposable Barbara case. Or they're using a one per customer. The have a supply already, so they're not reusing the case. A lot of them are not doing certain services like they won't do beard worker. They won't do a shave. Anything would require the client to remove their. Ask You know I think that there hasn't been lot of evidence of barb shrouds being one of the high transmission sentences yeah with. With anything, there's risks as this risks. Walk outside a any day is going to be some risk involved, and it's just a matter of the balance of how how much you want that service, so it makes sense. If you don't feel comfortable getting haircut, there was this article. You probably saw it a couple of days ago of a hair salon where I'm two of the stylists had. Tested, positive, Kobe, but none of the more than one hundred thirty customers at went in over the course of the day's tested positive. Everybody was wearing masks in. Suggests that really work mass to work if there's one thing I, wish, everyone could kind of agree on I. think that you know Mass Work. Yeah can we can we just say that right now? All of those people who were on the hike that I went on over the weekend. who were not wearing masks when you pass by me on the trail? That was this wide. Please wear masks. All Right? Let's talk. Brass tacks here song, so I mentioned a little bit about Squire for people who don't know the APP Tell us more about it. Yeah, so squire is a business management in point of sale software focusing on barbershops, so we do essentially everything that at barber shop needs to run their business from handling the booking interface to the back end inventory is really customized specifically for the barber shop, Industry and consumer side is a client You can actually find a barbershop a book. Pay Tip all in the APPAR- on the west side, and what's the business model? How do you guys make money through Business from Helena payment processing so that quarter our business there's a subscription component so the shops that use our platform pay one hundred dollars to two fifty a month, and then there's a customer booking fee, so if you book and pay on Squire, you'll pay about a dollar extra and that revenue goes to squire. Don't know this, but a lot of barbers are independent contractors. You may go to a barbershop and they have a chair there, but they actually are their own business right? Yeah, so to central models for Barbara business models. One is where you mentioned which we call kind of model Riche Barber is essentially an independent contractor of they run their own business. They manage their own schedule. Go and come as they please, and then they pay rent. Rent to the owner usually on a weekly basis, and then the other model is recall a commission model where those barbers are treated a little bit more like employees They have certain hours they come, and in that case they split the percentage of the transaction with the shop. Usually it'll be sixty, forty or fifty fifty and the owner get a piece of every transaction. you cope out of this with your friend Dave Tell me how you guys had the idea I know. I mean you studied philosophy? As an undergraduate went and got a law. Degree and Dave was an old friend I guess. How did you guys come up with this idea? So I actually. Found this squire I was at a corporate law firm and Davis actually in business school, and both of us wanted to do something entrepreneurial didn't want to go the corporate route so we would just brainstorm ideas on the weekend. And we eventually stumbled on the idea of barbershops and idea came out of our own experience. I haven't gone to barbershops for decades like most people I started going my dad as a kid around six or seven and experience of going to the barbershop heading change very antiquated, low tech industry cash-based. Call to make an appointment. Wait Times, so all of those pain points that we experienced form the basis of why we came up with the idea of this is something that we wanted to work on yeah. I shop. They don't take appointments. You have to get there. When the doors open at eight thirty, and they have a chalkboard, and there's usually a line, and it's cash only it's thirty five bucks, and you can get there eight thirty, and you might only get an appointment like eleven forty five, and some days all like ride my bike down there at eight thirty, and then they only have an appointment at a time. We'll have a live interview and I can't get an appointment. I can't get a haircut. But basically that's that's been the model for ever and ever for most barbershop. Yeah, so that's what we're solving. Because that's not really an ideal experience for you as as a customer, and it's not a good experience for the Barbara's either I in terms of efficiently. Running their business, but getting a haircut such such a great experience, and it's such an important part of your life that you're willing to to go through You know that poor customer experience to to get the service but we think that recommit the better than that. How how of you like? How do you approach barbershops I mean I have to imagine like there are a lot of barbershops that are like I. Don't want to give up my cash. I don't WanNa. Give Up. You know percentage of my business or percentage of my income I mean it's presumably you get some pushback from potential customers. How do you make the case for people to sign up? Yeah I, mean we? Sell to them is that this is going to make their lives easier? It's going to save time, and this is actually gonNA enable them to be better business and make more money and we can show them that. The software the software actually does early on. We did get more pushback from cash only shops. So our focus was more on shops that are already taking cards, but that's really the trend in the world, generally consumer are used to paying for services with cards, so the shops that are cash only there will be some segment that doesn't want to pay taxes quite frankly, but we're seeing more and more particularly. The newer shops that are opening, they understand that if they want meat consumers and provided really great strengths of their clients that they have to kind except cars, and it enables them to charge, you know we know that assess. People will pay more on card versus cash, and if you want to charge thirty dollars, a haircut for haircut, as is the case in many many cities. It just makes sense I have to imagine that bookings are significantly down because there's so many states you can't. You can't go a barbershop. Yeah, so bookings definitely took a dip when the shutdown started march April in our revenue, went zero gap, and we also decided to waive all of our subscription charges to current and new customers until October because we knew that their revenue was also GonNa go to zero. We want them to have that overhead. So as a result we expecting squire, since wouldn't be making any money, but row cave that because this is such a difficult time. What we have seen though is that at shops? Our customers reopening? They are getting put out. There getting relatively fast, and then and then the programs are continuing to stay consistent. You know that that just kind of speaks to how much of a neither was like a pent up demand from their clients to get haircuts, and I think that there's something about just the barbershop experience and the community element of it that people men in particular really look forward to to that normalcy, and to be able to get a haircut feel great about themselves and feel the way things were. They were before covert. So we're, we're actually seeing for the shops at rb opening higher than usual bookings and. Know we'll see how that trend continues in the months to come so far. There's something I read that you. You said about barbershops you call them. fail-proof service which I think is is right, you know I think you said look. They bring in roughly half the population that needs grooming, but this pandemic which nobody predicted and nobody anticipated has shown that nothing is fail-proof. Everything can fail even the most resilient. Is So however, the past few months, kind of made you rethink your business model. It's made me understand that you could never predict the future. There's always gonna be an unknown. We always thought that that are a a recession was coming some point right now. The good the gravy train can't go on forever. Our sought that out our business would fare relatively well in a downturn because. People will continue to get haircuts and we've seen this you know in in in the past that these type of of services no tend to remain consistent in downturns I mean. This is a total black swan ran. I never would have predicted a pandemic at the scale, but if anything I. Believe that our business is even more resilient than I thought before. Just seeing how we've been able to Kinda DAB to to the reality and make changes on the fly, a push features that we know our customers need during his time, and as a result, we've seen in the last two months actually more inbound. And more customers signing up than we ever have in the life of the confident. When we come back in just a moment, we'll hear from song about running a business drink a global economic crisis and his plans forgetting squire through the pandemic. Stay with US I'm guy and you're listening to how I built this resilience

Because if if one of the greatest trainers to ever Saadallah resource in the World Compares that Horse to Mill Reef.

"In yes there has the same here as well. That was actually pointed out to me by just a couple of weeks ago as we were talking about possible comebacks that has obviously it because it's not classified as a sport not has sped things up but it's been frustrating time and it's been a hurtful time for the industry in the UK and Ireland. And I presumed the same can be said for France. It's been absolutely terrible. Time for the industry. You're in France as well mainly for obviously like everywhere for the smart tables and medium size stable with you know. Medium ranch owners Big stable I haven't really been affected. I was reading an article. Chocolate woozy. Basically accept that there was no racing. He hasn't been really affected but some of the more stable where the trainers old some of the whole season part of the whole season. I've been struggling really and they're still at the moment of the discussion about the price Manila. It's going to be. Is He. Going to be kept on not in full is as it was the plan. They've already planned to cut the money. Of the BLACKTOP Tracy's eastern a obviously group racine by thirty percent and falls go wanted to the rest of the ratios by keep a moment discussion because if they do that with the on. Belva races and cutting prizemoney. Many people are not going to survive so This many discussion going on at the moment and hopefully the prize money. We look good down that much and the model is different than fronts. Because it's the party meet you all so yes. There is more of a funding from the bedding industry. That in a way will. We'll help things you would like to think. But we've already seen KIP. Go have pulled out a sponsorship. Due to the fact that she had spending mostly some in America his wife is Californian so there he's GonNa spend most of his time. There and Arlington Fronts are suffering at at that because co-sponsorship will be gone They will continue in the United Kingdom. Which is fantastic for their fantastic for the UK but pretty devastating for Arlington and the UK champions weekend for example was very heavily dependent on that money. Is there other sponsorship issues? As well in terms of resuming the sponsorship had any shoes except except issue but but the trouble in France. Is You know. The founding of racing comes from the being shops around the country. Most of them are going to remain closed at the moment Because you can back in in shops in France in You know where the tobacco newspaper nor the shops many of the places where people can bet on racing agreeing to remain closed until at least the end of. May beginning of so. This is a big issue opinion. Working on it with the governments and different organization tried to have as many shops re-open so that's the problem of funding of funding at the moment The racing in France. You see kind of a double blade. I should say a problem because nobody teaching no funding for racing and steal us. Pay The trainers and your news for the ratio are going to take place. So there's a Hue. And all the race courses that are being given the green light the go ahead so the French police intervened and Said Party. Longchamp is okay. Are there other more? High Profile racecourses though that won't be allowed no. I do not think so all the big cities in France. We're racing. He's supposed to resume and thinking of Marseille to lose Baldo this you're going to be only known. As waiting western France debut been under green light and the same as being done for Strasbourg. Which is let's let's teach. Trust is a very important truck in France and trust brew is into probably the most affected area by various controls or was anyway but still has been given the green light so on on you know regarding race go sees a dope race groceries. It's going to be no problem. But all the provincial track going to remain curls at the moment and he's GonNa take base on the main trucks in the area and looking ahead to some of the races that we're going to get to see on sky on Monday Very obviously French centric. I is there a is there going to be a situation where Irish and UK runners can take part in France or. Are we a situation where everyone's just going to focus on their own racing for now?

"Amy Gorman had told this woman that he had killed amy in a fit of rage then he realized he'd done something really bad so he cleaned her up and buried her behind his mother's house so this woman was thought to be maybe a good witness but it turns out. She had a lot of issues in her past including some drugs and other crimes so she wasn't really that great of a witness it turns out. Birkin main memorial was held for amy after her body had been officially identified. Amy was remembered as generous and loving person. People who had left her shared stories about amy. She had been extremely generous with their time and she even taken money from a savings account to help a friend. In need and throughout the investigation women would come forward to tell police that they had had nine consensual sex with Russ Gorman and their stories were all the same dismally the same Gorman given them drink they woke up with no memory of what had happened. Now these stories match what Ryan Campbell had told them about Gorman using drugs to one woman after a forced sexual encounter with Gorman told her girlfriends about it and their response was to shake their heads and saying Oh join the club so he has a pretty good rep doesn't he. Isn't that sad though that that was happening and no one felt like they could get help for that really sad but you know if you're out drinking this happens to you aside from feeling shame. Which a lot of women do you also feel like. Well no one's GonNa believe you and plus. You don't really know what happened exactly. So it's really an insidious thing so in each case. These women didn't make a report with police. Gorman was skilled at picking women who had low self esteem or who would be afraid to speak up and women were also coming forward now with stories of how he behaved. Women rejected his advances. So if a woman wasn't drugged and didn't want to have sex with them that would really piss him off. One woman described how he had trapped her and pushed her up against a wall which she said she wasn't going to have sex with him and you know he also had a history of violence in his long term relationships like with his pregnant girlfriend. Your he was Mr her now. We'll even his mother his grandmother. He was a violent to women. Violent Guy Yeah. So Gorman was returned to Maine and his held in Cumberland County jail for probation violations and on January. Second two thousand two. He admitted to the probation violations and was sentenced to ninety days in jail before he got released. Detect wanted to be sure that he was under indictment for amy's murder. His profile definitely suggested to police that he could kill again. All I mean absolutely especially after the standoff that's craziness through Smith's of Yeah. That is so the prosecution wanted to a grand jury meat so they could get. Tammy Westbrook's testimony on the record as soon as possible. And they'd heard the details of the confession from the old neighbor. Mary young and also from the priest Fred Basil but they had no direct information from Gorman's mother because she wasn't saying anything so they really needed to get her on record talking about the confession he made to her. So in February tammy was served a grand jury subpoena and she was told that Mary Yang and father. Basil would also be testifying also. She was told that her conversation with the priest was not privileged so she was subpoenaed for the grand jury but then she refused to testify and the prosecutors took her to a superior court justice who told her that she was to testify truthfully so she was given an opportunity to consult an attorney yes so and after viewing the interviews with the priest and Mary young and after an attorney advised her that she really had no right to refuse to testify. Timmy Westbrook went before the grand jury. She told that she would be subject to prosecution for perjury. So tell the truth. She had two young children still living at home and she really didn't want to risk being jailed with these kids at home. Yes a finally. She did tell the complete truth we believe. And this was the most dramatic part of the grand jury proceedings in an indictment was returned for. Russ Gorman for the murder of Amy's Saint Laurent there so Gorman's trial is going to begin on January tenth. Two thousand three. The attorneys needed the time to go through stacks of Documents Interview. Witnesses prepare exhibits get their strategy developed now. It was difficult to get witnesses to cooperate with the prosecutor's office. Often there needed to come back to Maine for the trial over time. It was becoming obvious that the prosecutors are going to have a major problem with. Tammy westbrook about the time. Her son was transferred from the Portland Jail to a prison in Warren Maine. She also moved toward she had been served with a subpoena compelling her to testify at the trial but whenever the prosecutors contacted her about coming in for pre-trial interview she wouldn't give a straight answer. She never did. She had this pattern of getting the call and not responding and that went on for weeks and finally. She was told that they had to speak with her before the trial. It was two days after when Portland Attorney called the police to tell them that he was now representing. Tammy Westbrook and the attorney told them that she didn't WanNa testify at the trial. Da In his view was that the prosecutor should be calling her up to testify anyway because she was the suspect's mother D- wanted a copy of the grand jury transcript turned over to him but he didn't have the right to see it there. Here no legal right whatsoever. No only Gorman defense attorney was given access to confidential documents in the case but after some back and forth discussion and consulting with the presiding judge. Tammy's attorney was given a copy of her grand jury testimony and after he got the transcript. He contacted the prosecutor's again and he had some bad news. He said it wouldn't be productive to call as a witness at her sons murder trial because now she didn't remember anything about the phone call in which he had made a confession to her an attack of Amnesia. Yes terrible I hate when that happens. He added that. Tammy didn't have any memory of the grand jury testimony and this was a big blow to the prosecutor's case because Tammy's testimony about his confession. Those possibly the most important evidence they had the also the prosecutor had to decide what he would do when she came into court and said she didn't remember anything so they wanted to get her statements into the record. As evidence of a past recollection recorded now the summer before the prosecutor had done in evidence seminar attorneys in the attorney. General's Office L. Doing the research. He'd come across a case known as the district case and this case addressed how to proceed a witness claims not to remember what you've got recorded. Yes there was some talk among the prosecutors about whether to call. Tammy Westbrook to the witness stand. Despite this claim that she lost her memory they could just take her claim at face value and introduced her testimony from the grand jury transcript but they decided it would be better to put her on the stand while through him more effective. Yes so the decision to call her as a witness despite her lack of memory was also made in part because the main rules of evidence require her presence but they also thought it was important to give the jury a chance to see her to understand what she was going through his appearance in the situation into judge for themselves if she really had memory loss which of course they don't believe at all so on Friday January tenth. Two Thousand Three fifteen months after amy had disappeared. Some citizens of Cumberland County were brought in to begin jury selection. They had twelve jurors and three alternates. And by the time the case was presented there was a large amount of information about Gorman that had to be excluded because it was found to be prejudicial so because of this the jury heard little about his character or his history of violence. They didn't hear about his extensive criminal. History they didn't hear that he had assaulted his mother during a fight that he had broken into. A neighbor's house needs stolen guns or that he had punched and kicked his pregnant girlfriend. Also none of the women that Gorman had drugged and raped took the stand and also has moved to Alabama wasn't mentioned because it could look like he had fled the state and be prejudicial so this meant the jury didn't learn about Gorman immediately getting a gun when he went to Alabama or about Gorman using those guns to threaten a stranger in a sandwich shop parking lot even worse I think is that the jury really didn't get to learn about who. Amy was in her short life. You know you can't really talk about that either. So they really had their hands. Tied in many ways are big right. I mean I understand. It's our legal system but it's kind of a shame they didn't get to hear that merge talk to Tammy Westbrook outside the jury's presence in order to determine if she could recall what she testified to at the grand jury trial and he found the Tammy could actually recall a confession miracle yes how she had shared it with a friend and with a priest so the judge ruled that a jury was entitled to hear her and make a decision. The motion is quest. The subpoena was denied and Westbrook resorted to testify. Yes while she was on the stand the audio tape of her grand jury testimony was played and hearing the testimony in her own. Words seemed really heartbreaking for her. She was in tears. She did end up testifying to the confession again about how her son had told her. He had shot amy in a rage and how he had said that he had seen her face at the time of the murder. His mother's face route. He's just an awful guy. He's messed up very so the next person to testify was. Gorman's ex girlfriend Jamie Malaysian. She testified that she had dated him for about a year and had broken up with him. In September. Two thousand one. She testified to conversations she had had with Gorman about the disappearance of Amy Saint Laurent on the day after amy disappeared. Gorman Call Jamie told her he'd met a girl downtown go into an after hours party with her taken aback downtown at the end of the night. So that's story number one. They called Jamie again. When is in Alabama this time? He said that he had dropped me off. He said that his roommates Jason Kushtia dropped her off that they had been gone for three hours and they return blood on their hands story number. Two Jamie testified that Gorman told her his roommates made him go to the police. She testified that she had a third phone call. With Gorman after his body was found in this call she asked him. Why was her body found in your backyard and he told her that he said to. Jason Kush to the people he said were the perpetrators they had asked him where a good place to bury a body would be necessary. Told him yes? After closing arguments the jury deliberated for just about five hours. And Gorman was found guilty six months after the verdict at the sentencing phase of Gorman's trial. Amy's family finally had their chance to tell the court with Gorman's violent act had done to them and also with the world had lost when he took amy away. She was a good person. Amy's little sister. Julie spoke about how it was for her for the two months while she was missing and she said that there was no place she could go where she wouldn't see the missing posters. She talked about driving down the road past the spot where amy had been buried and how. She's never been able to travel that route again. After knowing that her sister's body had been buried there she told the court when she lost her big sister. She also lost her best friend. And Amy's Dad. Dennis Saint Laurent said that. Amy had been a loving and caring person. Who of course didn't deserve what Corman had done to her and he reminded the court that Gorman had never shown any remorse for his crime and the last person to give a victim? Impact statement was. Amy's MOM Diane Jenkins. She wanted everyone to know who amy was because up until then she just really been seen as a victim on a poster. She described amy and her personality. And what a really remarkable young woman she was. Amy had loved her family and friends and she was very caring and loyal. So people were attracted to amy because she cared about them and was a genuine person and she really wanted to do some good in the world so her loss had changed everything for those who had loved her and she went on to explain all the ways that the loss of amy head hurts so many people especially her family. Diane said that she had endured every parent's worst nightmare. Gorman was sentenced to sixty years in prison and his appeals to this point have all been denied. Diane created the Amy Saint Laurent Foundation with the goal.

"Now about that time. The staff of the civility began asking people. Move away this is a policy that the old port bars had established in order to prevent rowdy crowds. Place might be closed. But you don't need to be all congregating outside now. You have to move along. Let's be on our way at Sei. They had policemen out there. Moving people along and so everyone who left the club rube rate assume that amy had left two men. He walked to the parking garage to his car and in the car. Was Amy cell phone coat person backpack because remember they come straight from Boston after dinner? No stops so other. She had with her. Were her driver's license. And some cash regret said that he may have driven around the black looking for amy in sear gave up. Figured she'd find her own way home and he drove back to her house and South Berwick. Yes I don't know how to really take that. Because is it really cool to leave the city with her purse coat. Everything without being a little more thorough and looking for her her no I mean I can't really see what all he could have done. He doesn't know where these guys were or where she went plus she was already kind of backing off from him. It seems like so he probably just figured I'm Outta here sure. I can see that if the story was true. So according to Rue Bright he followed the compass in his car and just started driving south. He stopped somewhere in South. Portland PUT GAS IN THE CAR. And after he bought the guests he told the police he continued south. He got on the turnpike eight. He drove to the Wells Exit. Which would lead to South Berwick from there? He followed the route. He knew to Amy's house. Andy told the detectives that at the turnpike tolls? He had no cash so he told the toll person that he only had fifteen cents and asked her if he could please use the highway anyway. Because it's the only route. He knew he was kind of lost. So I guess. This toll taker took some sympathy on him. And let him through. Your me was able to give detectives a handful of receipts from his wallet to show them his activities from Saturday night to Sunday morning. One of the slips was a credit card received for the gas regret said when he got to Amy's house she wasn't there then he checked her home phone and cell phone for messages but there weren't any I said he is uncomfortable sleeping in her house since she wasn't there so he slept in his car outside then in the morning he used the kisha given him to reenter her house and take a shower still no sign ever on that. Sunday sale left a note on her door. Asking what had happened thanked her for the visit. Then he her person backpack insider house left her code on the hood of her car and it was parked where she had left it. Saturday and he left her house key on the tire her car and then he left so he was at least with amy that night he had to be. If that's how it went he had been interested in her and she'd apparently got home with another man but which he really leave him with her purse or backpack or coat and herself out. That doesn't seem likely doesn't so Eric. Reu Bright did look like a good suspect were. Yeah if I'm listening to the story it's Kinda weird you know. Sure I'd be suspicious. Well his story of Amy disappearing while he was in the bathroom seemed pretty odd. Police were suspicious of his claim that he'd run out of money and had to talk his way onto the turnpike also. They also wondered why he'd felt uncomfortable and amy's apartment and why he had slept in his car that night. It seemed possible to detectives that right had slept in the car. Because maybe he couldn't face being in Amy's apartment after he'd hurt her killed her and maybe she didn't have a cell phone or purse because if she had been killed obviously she wouldn't need them so they're immediately suspicious that he has done something to her would be and with good reason. I think so so. We're braid agreed to have his rental car searched and he also consented to a polygraph. Then detectives got a call from Amy Stepfather. His name is Dan Jenkins Jenkins said. He had been contacted by a man in the old port who had seen the missing poster with. Amy's picture and the man said he was calling because he had been with amy early on Sunday morning so Jenkins said he told the caller and some other men had been with to go to the Portland Police Station and talk to the detectives right so a Portland Police. Sergeant was in his cruiser and the old port when he was waived down by three young men who told him they were going to the PD to talk about amy. The three men were Jeffrey. Russ Gorman Kush Sharma and Jason Cook and these guys shared an apartment on Brighton Avenue in Portland so they got into the police cruiser and were driven to the Police Department for questioning. The men said they had been at a bar called diggers and the bartender had shown them. The Flyer with Amy's picture on it. Jason Cook immediately recognized her as the woman that Gorman had been with early on Sunday morning so at Cooks insistence. Russ Gorman had called the number on the Flyer and he spoke with Amy Stepdad. Who had told him to contact the Portland police so it was of course important to interview these three guys right away. It was also crucial to separate them so they wouldn't be able to come up with a story so it's not easy to maintain ally if it didn't happen because the details of events are concrete. And your mind so for this reason liars can have a difficult time keeping their story straight and he didn't want these three guys to be able to organize what they were going to say if they'd done something so they interviewed each of the guys separately knowing that if any lies were told they'd probably be exposed by comparing them to the other guys interviews because there would be inconsistencies so here is Russ Gorman Story. He met amy at four play which is a Rowdy Barn Pool Hall at around ten thirty PM. He and his roommate Kush Sharma played pool with her and an older guy for fifteen or twenty minutes. He said he knew that. Amy was with a man from Florida. Who was watching them but wasn't playing any pool. Gorman and Sharma left foreplay to go to a bar called the Iguana then at around eleven forty five. They went to a dance club. And that was the pavilion about an hour later. According to Gorman Amy came up to him pinched him on his side and told him she couldn't find her friend from Florida. Gorman said that he then invited her to come back to his house where he told her there was going to be a birthday party or the other roommate. Jason Cook. So amy looked around some more trying to find rue bright. Who had her keys and she couldn't find him so she agreed to go to the party. With Gorman so during his interview Gorman was shown a picture of amy which he identified as the woman he was with early Sunday morning he said that he and Sharma. Amy went in his car from the old port to the apartment on Brighton Avenue. Where Gorman was staying and Gorman had told amy that some friends were getting together for a birthday party but when they arrived around one fifteen a m there was no party in fact it was just the three of them there and I'm sure that made her uncomfortable. I mean she was probably immediately thinking. This was a mistake. She just met these guys. Yeah you know. And they seemed Nice but well. Let's have a party. I think that he just made that up to get her back to his apartment while sure. Gorman said it he and Sharma had alcoholic drinks and he couldn't remember if amy was drinking or not and after a while Sharman. Amy went outside to what Jason Cook? Stuck and Sharma also wanted to smoke a cigarette so nobody showed up for this so called after hours party and he may ask to be driven back to the pavilion. She said she'd go back there. Look for her friend from Florida. And as she didn't find him she just go stay with her mother in South. Portland and I bet at this point. She just wanted to get away from. The Sky was getting some vibrations. Yeah Yeah I think you. I think you get a feeling things weren't looking right so Jason Cook arrived at the House. As Gorman was leaving to drive amy back to the old port and this was around one forty. Am Gorman told? The police he dropped amy off in front of the pavilion just before two. Am and it looked to him like she was walking toward the entrance when he last saw her. He said that he noticed other people standing round outside. But he didn't see or talk to anybody. So after dropping off amy. He said that he went straight home and he estimated that this whole thing dropping her off and coming back took less than ten minutes and he claimed to have stayed home for the rest of the night so all told he said that he may have been gone from the apartment for twenty minutes. No more an normally experience would have told the detectives to focus on. Russ Gorman as a potential suspect because he had been the last person seen with amy but they still had eric rupe bright to consider because he looks pretty good for it as well. Rube right had been with amy that evening and he was in possession of her cell phone and purse that night so his story needed to be checked out as well as Gorman's well definitely and detectives for at first at least anyway more focused on right. The he had this very elaborate story which was filled with small details. It could have been used to cover up his guilt one thing was if Gorman had dropped her off at the pavilion as he said angry. Rubric could have come back there and picked her up but he didn't as as we know he didn't well. He said he didn't so Gorman's roommates and friends needed to be thoroughly interviewed. Also we've got to corroborate all these stories. They also needed to talk to the staff. And the other witnesses they could find both four play in the pavilion. Somebody may have seen amy with Gorman or rubric or some announcement is important. Find witnesses who may have been outside when Gorman dropped me off right well another thing. Detectives did right away. Is they checked the criminal histories of Gorman and Rube right so this way they could develop profiles of each of these guys. If they believe that amy had been a victim of foul play then they also needed to develop a profile of her. So this detailed study of victim is called victimology. They're trying to find out if there's anything in her character or in her history. That would suggest that she wasn't as responsible as her family and friends were insisting that she was people did take off without telling people sometimes so they had to consider that and especially in the early days of an investigation. They have to be open to all possibilities right. You don't WanNA get tunnel vision. No I mean it's and it can be difficult if if you really focused on one guy that you're pretty convinced might be the perpetrator. It's tough to be open to other possibilities. Yeah I can see that but the police officers seem to be ready to listen anything. Yes I mean. They also needed to find out if there was anyone else in. Amy's life who might have been motivated to hurt her like jealous ex-boyfriend something like that. Absolutely today's show is sponsored by audible.

"Oh Ooh I got it right then down. That's a good look good. It's funny. I referenced that when Greg and I were down in Mexico this August we went to Schimanek like Meditation Drum Circle like healing night and it was just as weird as it sounds and it was kind of the best and we. I'm we left after like over two hours of this like drumming and like chanting and guided meditations and then like the Shaman. Doing like bodywork bodywork on us and like trying to rid of whatever it was it was like had us. It's clutches and Blah Blah Blah. And I mean we went down like that. That was really weird and then Greg was like I love that we do this weird stuff and I was like I kinda do too. Because like there's little nuggets Everywhere like I don't really believe I almost feel like I don't know if this is true or not. I hear myself say this but I don't know it's true I I just feel feel like having deconstructed. And maybe this is part of the transition going through now is Having deconstructed my belief system I thought I have thought for a long time now like kind of made me unable to believe anything like I've I you know it's an and yet I like into La. Like I'll go to and to it'd I'll go to like the sound bad. I'm doing all that like non you know where I'm like. Yeah I'll go to Chamonix Drum Circle Michael Meditation Healing night like I don't believe any of it but like I there are things that I find helpful inside there's like you know some clairvoyant. Like gave me some some of the weirdest like reading caution records and talking to me about my past lives and everything and I was like I don't believe past lives and she's like that doesn't matter like there's there's information I'm here for you like it doesn't matter what you believe and whatever and I don't know maybe I'm maybe I'm transitioning now going back to being able to Cleveland something because it's funny funny that even though I'm like I don't believe in anything here. I am continuing to like in the same way I took every Bible class. I could possibly take ran out of class and had to go seminary like I ah similarly now and like. I don't even anything and yet I'm constantly going to Shaman healers and then two dozen clairvoyance like all you know like I've really gotten gotten into TM. And I really like him because It's a practice that's just for me. It's more scientific and I'm like I don't want anything that has any religious roots you know and Ah Anyway when we were with this Shaman that night in Mexico after he took us on this whole long thing. You kinda do get swept up like the rhythm of the drums drums. you start to kind of be like WHOA I. I am kind of going on a little bit of journey here in terms of like all right. I'm I'm hanging. I'm listening. Whatever at the end of the whole who thing when he kind of had me in a state of being able to hear him he ended by just saying like life is an idea? If it's not working for you change the idea and we went home that night into the water. Like look at the stars Dot doc about that for hours and we were like what does that mean for us. Because I do think that's possible like change the idea like and and in the same way you're saying like that's awesome make you have bigger circles Rather than circling the wagons and coming in and being like death is what I believe like my precious. It's like white. Knuckling it being like what are the ways in which like what are the ideas that take me into a wider and wider circle. It might be more helpful you know. Yeah that's such an amazing life idea. That's right I in different days in different moods and I continue to kind of like just try to let that sink in. Yeah Yeah because I mean ideas are so fleeting in transitory. It's it's weird to think of life in that and and it's also like what according to what's his name Sapiens like six. It's the exact thing we've evolved twos. But now we are these like mammals but who have this strange consciousness through language that can imagine. And can you know and it's probably also what's giving anxiety miniature and all that stuff like I always tell my improv students. I'm like just be like a dog. Like dogs are the best improvisers because dogs are entirely present every three time. My dog gets in the car. She doesn't know if we're going to the best place in the world the beach or if we're going to the worst place in the world the vet. She's just in the car. Unlike with Improv. With my students all the time I can be like. You're not having fun. And you're not entering a state of play and getting into the flow of just like making organic discoveries together other through listening to each other because you're so trying to figure out where the car of this scene is going like just being a car just be in the car and and Because it's it's in the same way that like I have to stop performing to try to gain earn love. Because it's not up to me to answer.

"I come back to as you know. I don't care what you believe and I care that your whole and so like the things that they get you closer to that. That's really what matters and I think Pete has a very expansive way of expressing that and like that's why he's able to. I think one of the things that evangelicals teaches you is do not have a piecemeal theology. It's gotTa be cohesive it's got to be consistent and it's got to be all these things but there's like a whole other type of spirituality that is able to receive the goodness from all sorts of traditions and recognize them all as since valuable and that's I think it's hard for people that come from backgrounds like ours to get to that place but it. I think it's often very very much depending on the person it can be very much worth the effort to explore. There's this one quote. Hello and I I WANNA say I know that I had this wrong It's you're GonNa hear me type Because I WANNA I want to put the right poet but there's Oh as a rookie. I was GONNA say roomy but it's real. There's there's one line from uh-huh rookie. That I heard on an on being podcast years ago. That seems to continue to echo for me which is I live my life in widening circles and to me that it sort of encompasses leaving a very fundamentalist literalist type of religion of origin has leading. Yeah that's great and bigger really. Yeah I mean you you. You're still working. You can still be the angry you know but there's there's also a good thing about you don't have to feel an obligation to the anger just like he felt an obligation to. Wow.

"I don't believe it but it's clearly so good for all these people and it does good for people like hey whatever works for you man and then I started to move into a period period where I was like. Actually I don't think it is good for people like I think it hurts people. I don't think it's okay. And then I started to feel like I was like a Jedi Knight who was like working for the dark side like I. I'd gone over to like vader's side or something like and then the very dramatic but like I kind of was like fearing that but I also still getting getting showing much approval like from my parents and stuff for working there and it was actually offering me. Financial Security to be able to live in. Chicago is like a young single girl and like support Improv. Habit so I think like an a- as I started Doing more and more comedy I I think because of my deepest securities like I would always just be like on the funny one on the team. I'm like I can make the connections and be a good supportive player and stuff but I'm not funny and I was. I was getting laughed. I just couldn't even like absorb them because of you know the the multitude of Voices in my head of that belief system. That had kept me so frightened Hobbling I I started to really struggle to know what my voice was and I still to this day. I have a thing where whenever I do an Improv show I have trouble remembering it afterwards. almost almost like I went into some other state and I remember One of my friends one night saying something. It was really funny in the show. She was like that was really funny and I was like. What are you talking about? And she was like you were playing this like twelve year old little like skater kid. Who Sort of a bad influence on the character? She had been playing and she was like and we were having this conversation and character in your little twelve year old skater kid looked at me and said it's a dualistic thinking that's keeping you pain and I was like I sat in the show tonight and she was like she was like. Yeah it was it was really funny to hear a case. Talk like that to realize that like that. My actual comedic was like juxtaposing. Like put pudding Starting to let my little inner Weirdo speak and letting her out. Like the very thing that I'd sort of been hiding from the world my whole life like actually the comedic boys and I was getting laughed. I just wasn't getting last where I was trying to get laughs. I was getting laughs like accidentally when I would inadvertently like stumble into a moment of enough freedom where I let my little inner Weirdo Talk. And she would start to describe the way that she sees the world that she's deconstructing the like new idea of reality and and walking away from like the painful belief system that was not serving her and so as I slowly became more or conscious of that I think my comedic voice started to become clear in my head and like the loud mean. insecure voices. This is that we're trying to always prepare me for the worst. By telling me the worst things about myself started to subside like when I was on stage because I found it really refreshing to not be me. I wasn't me in that moment. I was playing this eighty year. Old Woman who doesn't give good gun them or whatever and I I found it to be such a refreshing break. Like to clock out from the exhausted. Like hamster wheel that had been holly he and be somebody else and So I honestly in many ways I feel like Improv and comedy kind of kind of saved me and then and then during that time I met Greg who I started dating and then Years later we got married and In Chicago and and and and it's funny because like I remember I had kind of become a real bullshitter because I felt so deeply bad about who I was that I was always always just like trying to give you some like Bullshit version of me that I thought you would find more acceptable or likeable or whatever and so like at the same time. My comedic voice sort of starting to click in I was also identifying like the how I had to like Sort of extricate that bullshitter from inside of me. That was Hiding from you you know and like putting up walls of like and I just realized I was kind of doing that with Greg like I was really only showing him like putting my best foot forward which I guess you Kinda do. When you're I dating someone anyway of like look? How great and lovable I am? And I'm not frightened and frail and angry at all unlike wonderful to be around. I laugh a lot. Ha This is so fun and I mean I think like as it started to look more and more like trust with him and the more comfortable I got with him the more I would let the real niece slip out. That's like an and I just stopped. I was like on a new mission to be honest with myself. Delve to be honest with my peers in my loved ones and to be honest with the world as I started to do that. My little inner Weirdo started speaking more and more and I. Ah I always tell this dumb story of like Greg and I were driving to visit. His family were driving this little tiny town and there was just like one and stop sign and like a tavern and post office and but there was the storage facility and it said Eagles storage and I was looking at it and I was like wow and greg was like what what are you thinking about what. What's wow and I was like? This must be a really weird town when he was like. Why do you say that and I was like and I pointed at the eagles storage space and I was like that so many people here would have eagles that they would need a storage for it and he kind of laughed like that and I was like and then I realized in that moment like I was like wait? Why did he just laugh and then I was like did I see something stupid? Oh I said something something stupid. Oh wait maybe. There aren't eagles in there. Oh wait that's okay. That's just a but like I think because of the way my brain formed with the evangelical beliefs or some like everything is so concrete. That like my little inner Weirdo when I read evil people storage. I'm like Oh that's a place where you store. Eagles and I realized to that like that's how it was getting laughs on stage when I would talk like that and I and then I would retro actively be like. Why did they laugh at that? In that you know and then I try to act like I meant it like that you know I I like Oh yeah I get I get why. That's funny when in truth like I I I didn't get. It was funny so the more I like killed the bullshitter inside of me the more I started to realize that I could talk like that all the time and then also laugh at myself. Because I'll still I mean like I'll still still do it I i. The other day no shit was sitting at the stoplight here in La and there was a spinning sign outside of a liquor store and it sends silver liquor. And I was looking at it and I was like Silverlake and I had a long like not whereas like I've heard of gold schlager where there's like gold flecks in in the booze but I've never heard of drinking anything over and I was like what would a sober there's gotta be silver and and through the whole stop light. I had that that was my whole line line of thinking the whole time and then it took me that long to be like. Oh that's the name of the liquor store like m. such a dumb But like being able to laugh at myself and be able to be honest with the world and be like yeah like that's how I was so afraid of being seen as dumb for so long and now I'm a little bit like you know. Sometimes I'm done Sometimes I'm not ah but Sometimes can be a real a real dummy and I'm just GONNA choose to laugh about it rather than tried to impress you. That is the way some people process information. And just like you said like everything about your world was was literal and fantastical at the same time. So that makes sense. Yeah I think Exactly can't can't say yeah. So how did you guys. How did you in Greg decide to start a show like mega you? You host a podcast called mega and it is about a fictional mega church in Indianapolis which makes it even richer for me. Just because I grew up about an hour outside of Indianapolis and yet and so so you chose the Trendy neighborhood in broad ripple to locate a everything. I think I love everything about about that. The setup of the show but how how did you eventually take all this stuff like in sort of marry these two parts of your life. You have everything from your childhood and adolescence since that that you processed going through college and after college and then you have this comedic chapter and then now over the last couple of years you've mm-hmm explored both through this podcast. which is an Improv show based in a mega church? So how'd how'd out of that come together. Well I've always said like that I'm bilingual. I speak English and I speak evangelical and And it might be like tooting my own horrible too much so forgive me but I i. I sometimes like in my deepest thoughts. I'll be like ooh. There's nothing more dangerous than someone who could translate the New Testament who grew up like so deeply entrenched in all of this thinking and who like knows how to speak your language and can navigate as a as a native in your world who actually like has gone through the deconstruction process. And then can kind of be funny about it as well but that honestly is taking way too much credit for the whole thing happening Because I just wanted to do a podcast I was like I'm in. La On hustling. I'm trying to Create you know I mean that Hustle and And I was going to do podcasts on podcast and I kept coming up with all these ideas and I would be on walks with my like comedy friends. It'd be on like walking the dog with Gregg. It'd be like oh I want to do something about how Improv Blah Blah Blah. I'm trying to come up with all these different ideas of like like the the therapeutic nature of like the rules of Improv and Greg just kept being like you gotta do something about a mega church like it's such a rich backdrop and you know the language Anglican and like you can bring your comedic sensibilities and like create a really fearing satire. And he's like you've got you gotta do something about a mega church. You have this your pets but honestly truth like I was really avoiding it because I think I held a lot of regret in my body like for how long long I had stayed working at a mega church when I didn't even believe how much it hurt me to feel so strangely closeted there and how I felt so full of Shit and it just had so many like bad feelings around it for me that I was like. Yeah I you know I I I want to do something about this or that. And they kept like they get all these ideas and finally I went and I sat with The production the media group who like now produces and I was sitting with Them and on pitching all these ideas and they were kind of like. Yeah there's no energy under and they were Kinda like looking at their watches and like kind of late in pitch. I was like and I had this idea idea. Like you know improvised satire. Seven mega church like playing characters. Work the Mega Church and bringing in like you know against each week. You know. Play somebody else's part of that like that community and they were like wait what they were like. That's the one look. Let's see I'm so I WANNA way I'm like totally over. Thought it was like okay. What do I name it? And how do I design the world and Blah Blah Blah Blah and. I worked so hard on it and then ended up tossing out everything that I been trying working too hard on and I was like you know what I don't care I'm GonNa call it twin hills because I'll be able to remember it because I'll think of it like boobs and to me it's funny if I have like a a.

"It's hose. It was like a human being having a very real problem and they needed their next stabilize. have hand laid on them. But like I I also would hear things from the pulpit about like the sin of drink or women or whatever and I heard heard loud and clear that I myself in this you know body it was like an actual and like I was like basically you know in my responsibility. The two do everything in my power to not be the downfall of good and upright men and it was very much a man's world and I was just I really struggled. And and I I think the deep deep Sort of like insecurity Low self esteem and like shame that came from those years just was very very very very deep learned that I think to this day. I'm still sort of Trying to intentionally. He'll he'll and trying not to do too much of the like Boots and cannabis to nominate but only let myself that like in moderation or or in What what what is it that people like to say balances? They're like sneaker to live forever. 'cause I think I would And I think I have spent years like in a little bit of a like boozy or candidacy. Sort of fog Because it just to cope it just was absolutely it was just kind of 'cause there's just more than I could take the Being a highly emotional highly sensitive person. Yes and so And I kind of watched watched it crush my mom She was really the only person you you know. My Dad would come and go. She was really the primary loved source. Basically and I just think in studying her I also got a really deep fear. You're for all of it but I completely believed in in entirely and My parents were big super naturalist too so it was just this constant something like spiritual warfare being waged constantly around us all the time like Angels Demons God Satan Heaven and Hell like this warfare for the eternal destiny custody of our souls and like when when the it seems to me like now looking back and I don't have children and I'm sure a lot of my trauma is is wha is why I don't have children but Like Sam Child free. I don't WANNA baby in my body or in my apartment sucking off my body or we're my bank account as you can see like turn to to Comedy obviously also like A. I think like All that Like everything Chris. Everyone I knew was Christian Christian Christian Christian Kirksey them when I finally like got out of the House and started the sword Lord of like learn how to think critically in college and then when I finally got Chicago and discovered Improv comedy. I feel like I kind of like replaced that Replaced Christ with comedy and comedy was a place where like with which Christ I always felt like. I was good enough I I had a really even though like all day like it. Crushed me so hard and I might sub Steve and everything was so devastated. I still had a really strong I always had a really kind of strong wrong natural rebellious spirit where I just would sort of naturally do whatever it was but you know I wasn't that I was being told that was just kind of my my nature. Hr so that also really really scared me. Because then also I learned about like predestination and stuff and I'm like Oh clearly I'm not predestined. And then that's all like you you know and so they're like oh I'm just fucked and but I was born into a Christian family but I just can't find the Jesus gear in my life shifter and I and I. I thought that I'm not going to be in a very real hell forever and so I just really did get to where I was like You know so I'm just going to do all the things I and Really you know it was. It wasn't a very compelling belief system anyway when really everything had been told was just. Don't drink don't smoke. Don't have sex to married right right and you know the three months like just was not very compelling so I was like okay so those are the three things I'm going to do and and then live in complete ABS- absolute terror constantly like of the very real helmet awaits me. Yeah because those are the only options right. I mean you. Just you're either a saint or an apostate so like you just have to decide. There's no gray. Yeah exactly so I think But it was like when I saw I was being really I was just being a not not take care of you know like in in high school and stuff I think honestly because I just I did start to try to numb all that stuff because I had no coping mechanisms. I couldn't even think critically I wouldn't you know and I just really. I just couldn't do it. I wasn't doing my devotions. I wasn't a prayerful person. I tried so hard and I was just so filled with fear that I finally just started to drown that fear are in like going to parties and getting hammered and like yeah and like doing all the things and then it but it wasn't until like it's funny that I went to a Church of God school in Indiana because like based on the the church I grew up in and even hoge on junior. Hi I went to a fundamental baptist is already like fundamental. I mean my God help you but like I went to a fundamental baptist Christian school and junior high were it was just fire and brimstone and Required soul winning and girls had to wear dresses and get down on our knees like coming into school every day to show. Oh that are skirts like would touch the floor. And then we weren't showing too much leg like and it's just like it was really really bad at an at that time when and you're already like I'm in junior high and I hate my body and I'm full of shame and terror and then it was just like more shame and terror So I think that's why I just really like went off. The deep end in high school and then got to college was like immediately found like the partying group and the bad kids who sleep through chapel and everything and yeah. I think that's one one thing that's just a very particular at Christian schools. Is that Mike. The bad kids so to speak are just the kids. The act like normal like any other college like college too yeah exactly exactly and But but funnily early enough like I also was taking so many Bible classes that I ran out of classes take in the Bible and Religion Department at the school and they started anybody me take classes in the seminary like while I was an Undergrad just because I was like I was learning how to think critically critically for the first time ever and I was so curious that I thought that if I and I noticed you To coin a Greek too right. Yeah yeah so it took a couple of years a years in In College and that was my first Freshman year was like the first full week of school was when nine eleven happened and I and and so I actually had my the history department. I initially went in as a history major And they're really big on double majors so I was history dream Biblical literature and I planned on going seminary afterwards And it was like the comparison of taking Greek and learning more about how the Bible was made and like. I didn't even really realize that I was sort of a biblical literalist but like studying Greek. Just made was a huge huge huge faith crisis for me coupled with like the history department was like defacto Republican and they were wrong about Iraq and and like I was becoming increasingly pacifist like myself because of what I was Playing in the Bible so yeah so I did take. I did take Greek and I was a for me. That was a big like holy cow. This is way more complicated than I thought it was moment. Yeah Yeah me too very much so and I was like okay now. I can translate the New Testament for myself and and understanding like the the complicated nature of of it being an inflected language. And what that means in terms of interpretation and all that stuff and and I think so so. Yeah same for me like that. That created a crisis a phase. Where like okay so like how far can pull the talk about his Deacon version as like death by thousand cuts like shows that was one of the cuts and then you know like wait? I think gay people are great and that was cut and run like all. Those things seems like wait. I have gay friends there. Dope like this way in all these cuts starts to appear like you only have so many fingers to like put put into the dam and And and I mean God bless them like that. That University was compared to the church. I grew up in. It was like fairly what you go. What my parents I guess we call liberal in terms of like Christianity record? I Ha- you know what I mean. 'cause I had like philosophy classes and stuff where like my doctor read one day because of some thing I've seen a classic aren't sure he gave me a book called the myth of State. And I want you to read this then like right some reactions to it and bring it back to me and I was like what are you talking about. The mets of shape like this is like really so offensive. And he's as like you know and And speaking of do you know Barkan Polo And that's Tony Campos son that that is no longer a Christian Ray. I know that they like wrote a put together where they sorta dialogue. Don't have that right. Yeah here He. He followed in his dad's footsteps was kind of like doing evangelical local like speaking circuit. And all that stuff and He was You know sort of like okay. I'M NOT GONNA do the Hell I'm not gonNA believe helping I'm not gonNA believe homosexuality thing for Lgbtq plus you know. I'M NOT GONNA okay. I'm not gonNA also and then it just starts to you know. The JENGA starts to topple I guess and but but He now has a podcast. which really great called humanize me and And he you talk about like It's just it's a supportive community for he. He's such a minister heart who no longer believes in the Bible solar and got her in any of that But he's but he's such a deep Minister that he has like now devoted his life to for a while he went and with the humanist chaplain at USC and And now he has the human is me podcast where he's basically I think ministering to the people who have left buffet converted or whatever you WanNa say and who are in pain and need answers of how to stay connected to the believers in their life who they deeply love and how to we know what to do in terms of unity. And all that stuff. So I he's really great and I got kind of lucky by like finding comedy I found instant community and I found a place where I felt like it was very strange to me when I got into comedy because I was like. Oh wait you can't really get like kicked out for anything anything. I was just always so afraid of being found out by the Christians is not getting it right and you know it's sort of like you know being Ostracized in in comedy. I'm like well I guess the only real sin here is not being funny. And so like I'll just. I'll just keep working muscle and like find a place to belong and whatever but Ridwan. Moore's art it's like I'm sorry for the noise in background. That's my my dog. who sounds like a cat so sorry about that? I'm such a dog person. Don't be don't do you know apologize. I my. My doubts dog will probably start making noise here since but when when I was in college and like being like bad kit hit or whatever Bar Chen Polo came through like doing some kind of life speaking. He's spoken chapel. And whatever and I was really compelled by what he was talking about confusing. I don't care if you're sleeping with your girlfriend. I don't care if you've got like porn under your bed or whatever I want to know if you care about poor people and it was more about like social justice and for the first time like an actual compelling passage of like a do instead of don't and so I like went and worked with his inner city ministry in Philadelphia. Just like the things that was seeing like doing inner city ministry was like almost more than I could pay to Just more than I could bear like the things that these kids are going through on the streets like in in these like disenfranchised communities and stuff I was just like Whoa. That was another big cut that was appearing where I was like cool. So I'm telling these kids who have no oh hope and who are being gang raped and stuff. There's like a very real God who loves them more than ever and it's like all powerful and everything and I was like I'm really struggling in here. And then meanwhile like you know learning coinate Greek of being able to translate and then seeing how complicated that is and yeah like you said how the Bible was assembled and everything and then reading reading the myth of Satan and and It's funny because when I was doing inner city ministry in Philadelphia I was living in the basement. It's like pre Presbyterian and Presbyterian church. It was a little bit more compared to how I grew up. It was a little more like high church. You know where like. They all had the same sermon every week and all the different like churches and And one of their like eucharistic ministers with a female and I was like Whoa. That's weird 'cause like I grew up with like there were no no female leadership Kinda got to be close to her and she started talking about things like the poetry of the Creation Story and like the myth of creation And stuff and I'm like wait. You're a Christian and you're saying there wasn't a seven day creation that it was like a piece of poetry and And it's and I was like wait. No you you you he then and and then as I started taking more and more of these seminary classes in college It's so looking back. I'm like that was so weird that I was like trying to like smoke and stay out in the graveyard heard like making out in stuff like saving chapel and like partying hard on the weekends and stuff and yet I was like veraciously doing everything I could to learn everything everything I possibly could about what I still believed to.

"And welcome back. Exxon Jellicoe my guest. This week is Holly Laurent she. She is the CO host of the mega podcast as well as a feature performer on. NPR's live from here from the shore said welcome. Welcome to the show. You know what people do that all the time people call me Lauren Lot and I respond to it because my last name kind of looks like a first name and so my name to you. You're in good. You're in good company. Oh Man I I had everything else find on on the first day and then I totally gifted on that the human right. That's right. Well welcome to the show. Holly I like to start off the show by talking about where more people you grew up like both where they grew up in the states where where they did and sort of what their initial religious upbringing was like as well. So let's let's start there. Where where did you get your start? Yeah well you know what's interesting is you're sitting in Chicago right now right. Yeah that's right. What neighborhood do you live in? I live in Rogers. I just park in the far side. So Yeah I consider myself as cargo in. 'cause I lived there for probably fifteen years when I was I didn't high school. I grew up in the suburbs. Out in Elgin okay. Yeah I went to high school in Naperville so different parts of the suburbs but also gration. Yeah Yeah And then when I moved into the city actually and I love Chicago so much everywhere I lived in Lakeview Lincoln Square Square Buck town I kind of was all over and I love Chicago so much and just picturing you and Chicago and picturing turn Rogers Park and like hearing the L in my memory makes me really nostalgic because I've been living in La for the last six years. And I But I but I consider myself a Chicago and yes it's a great city in it's it's got the neighborhoods have such character and you know they're very distinct and I'm a huge booster of Osha Kogyo and the neighborhood of Rogers Park. I know that Mike Rogers Park is known for being like an affordable place but also a little a little dicey I think it's I think it's growing out of their reputation. Just because it's one of the places where he can have an a have a larger place and and you know where younger families can get a start without making bank. Yeah that's great and are there any Lou Malnati's L. Matt he's up in writer's cards because like I think loom out that makes life worth living. There's a there's a donnas but there's not a luminaries there's Yeah there's like peons in bloom and Edgier Donnas and of the big ones. That's the one that's here. Yeah I think those are not even in the same category I'm still and for people for those. Hey friends listening or like what in the hell are you talking talking about. We're talking about a pizza place. Called Lou Malnati's even though it sounds like we're talking about the aluminum. I just think people that make life worth living bring in. I think that's the best pizza in the world and people who should on Chicago style pizza. I just know that we're never going to really connect. That's fair I I like I'd lose Their Saas doesn't it's my favorite of all the Chicago spots but other than in their sauce. I really like lose. This is a pretty big part Blake. I know it is part of it but anyway. Sorry I'm off topic but I grew up. my My Mom and dad I I was born in Chicago suburbs and then When I was like a toddler my family moved to Niles Michigan which is in southwest Michigan? Just on the other side of the lake and I lived there until I was twelve and then when I was twelve we moved back for the Chicago. Suburbs and So then I went to the College in Indiana at Anderson University in Anderson Indiana Church of God school down there and then Yeah and then probably moved to to Chicago. I went to Indiana Wesleyan so right down the road. I Know Indiana Wesleyan. My Dad is in was growing go traveling like a traveling evangelist and Now he's now. He's a teaching pastor at a mega church but he I remember he did some like spiritual emphasis week or something. Indiana Wesleyan and I came over from Anderson to like see for the night and hang out with them and I always love to watch. Watch him do his thing and Yeah I I remember always being like are are these Wesleyan's Okay Dad. And he's like yeah. Yeah they're cool. You know all the different like sex. And everything like Rome I remember when we pulled into Anderson Indiana when I was like moving into my freshman year college dorm and I saw that it said a Church of God school on the Sinai was like it's Church of God. Okay Dad and he was like yeah yeah. They're pretty cool. So did you. So as your your dad has a traveling evangelist. Did he have a denominational affiliation allegation or was he a freelance evangelist. He was more like a free He was just really bringing the good news of the Gospel in introducing people to a really cool. Jesus who I loved like. You've never been loved before baby and so yeah But at home we went to a Baptist Baptist more specifically northern Baptist Church And because my mom's dad was the pastor at First Baptist Church of Niles Michigan so I I grew up and was baptized Baptist Church real sort of traditional like no clapping. Oh Heavens and You know all the it was just run by a bunch of white guys and But it's Kinda like Niles was a blue collar town. I when I was really young. My parents were in a Christian rock band. One I ever Christian Christian rock band seventy like called the good news circle and So they they got married In college started this band. The good news circle started traveling and like putting out albums and like really had a lifestyle going with it there for several years and and So that was my like really early life with this kind of like rock and roll road show And then when my mom I kept having kids in my family total like we settled a Niles and My Dad he had started to at the end of like their music shows Jones. He would kinda give this message about you know how much Jesus loves you and like it would be this big emotional kind of altar. Call thing you know. I watched I watched every night in my life. You know growing up and so he just started to more and more like speak more and more and then when the band finally busted up doc he just stayed a traveling evangelist and so for Until I was like twelve daddy was on the road constantly and so like in in the summer time or when we were on break from school and stuff he would take one of us at a time with him just so he could like get to know us because he was just always gone. Oh I Yeah so I would Yeah I would just be on road trips with my dad like driving all night to get to the next place to get to the next church to do the next thing I would. He would start to include. Include me in little like skits and sketches and stuff. He would do to Kinda like make his message is more dynamic and stuff and So yeah I just saw kind of in front and behind. The curtain grew up really proud of his ability to work a room to move people and he's very charismatic and he's he's a great storyteller and he's funny he's good looking. I just I was just like my dad's the greatest you know it was like really I mean I know. Everybody's parents fall off pedestals but like I had him up there so damn high yeah And so so yeah and then and then When I wasn't on the road with him back home I was In Christian school and Church because my GRANDPA was the patch or the church. We were in church Sunday morning. Sunday night Wednesday night Christian school chapel a three days a week Bible classes five days a week. It was like everyone. I newest Christian every thought I had was Christian. Everything I knew just did like in all reality was just like this evangelical or kind of like you know. Protestant capitalist title is sort of American Christianity and and I think what happened in those early years to be really honest. I I think you bet Evangelical can be very brutal to all types of humans Mentally psychologically emotionally spiritually. We all that stuff But I think there is a specific thing like for females at least for for me just being very emotional being highly sensitive. Have I really really struggled because I can remember being really young I can I have. I have thought of like being so so so oh young like I have memories of even being toddler and stuff and I remember kind flake when I learned the alphabet. And when I learned about like gender and all that stuff I remember Knbr just really being like having a more infinite mind and being like Oh like okay so now I know twenty six letters. I can't wait to learn more because they must be infinite and gender must be infinite and everything must be. I just remember being very and I was oh strong willed. I had like likes such a strong sense of self and I just Kinda came into this world already acting just fresh out of Fox and like Very very very hard to discipline like my. My poor mom was basically like a single mom with my dad was never there and I was just so strong willed and like I like disciplined disciplined. Didn't really work on me. I almost saw it as like a game of like okay so she got one and now I gotta do something okay just had the strongest sense of self and strong and will and kind of I feel like I got here with a lot of like muchness and bigness and What I think happened opened in those early years is it just got beat out of me? So dreadfully so painfully and and and the world came crashing. The Christian World came crashing rushing in is so small and limiting and for me very like frightening and traumatic and and it made me hate myself Alfred. Fear God you know the like the fear of God for me was like actual terror just being who is like you know knows everything sees everything is keeping track of every like thought instinct behavior habit impulse desires you know like and it just really truly scared the absolute Shit Outta me and and kind of in the way. If you've ever seen someone like break a horse in the worst possible way by like just literally breaking their their there will and their spirit like. I kind of feel like. That's what happened to me over the course of being exposed to those Belief system like really not only just not helpful helpful in helping me as like a small creature. Learn how to navigate the world and occasionally experience joy or something it just really like it CR- crushed crushed me and all that like muchness and sort of vision and and strong will and everything that that came so naturally actually to me in the beginning just sort of toppled into this like very fearful anxious. Shame just like so filled with like shame mm-hmm dread and Just like so. I got really traumatized I like I sort of have sleep disorders to this day because I used to always try to stay awake. Like saying the sinner's prayer all night long in case I died in my sleep. I was just so afraid of going to hell like my dad. My Dad was casting out demons that like you know revivals and stuff and I'm like whoa weird that team and go you know and I was so afraid of a demon coming inside of me and taking me over and me becoming coming a host of of what I was seeing as a kid which people like foaming at the mouth and is rolled back and everything it took me like well into my I twenty or maybe even thirty goodness gracious. It's maybe not to be like. Oh people in big crowds with like music and lights and everything in have seizures when they're epileptic and like they're they foam at the mouth in their eyes roll back and guttural noises come out of their body. That wasn't a demon like trying to like fight to stay in it..
