Riley Gaines Is Protecting Girls' Sports From Transgender Peril
"Ado, I want to welcome Riley gaines who is just been blowing up lately. Riley, welcome to the show. Well, thank you so much for having me on. Well, we're just honored, you know, we've had a front row seat both here on the Charlie Kirk show and at turning point USA to watching you really sort of rise out of obscurity. You were class of 22 UK swim. You competed against Leah Thomas, the man masquerading as a woman and really cheating a lot of other competitors such as yourself at the national championships swim meets and you took a stand. You were brave. You were one of these lone voices calling out in the wilderness. I know you're a Christian, so you understand that imagery, you really were very isolated and alone. I want to start there, Riley, what is it about you, maybe your upbringing, your family, that made you stand out when so many other competitors, women that you were friends with that you were competing against, they shared privately with you that they didn't agree with what was happening, but they stayed silent. Why did you not? I think what it is for me, I get called brave all the time. I get called courageous all the time. But I don't feel brave. I don't feel courageous. I think what I think of as brave is our military is our law enforcement, people who are actively putting themselves on the front lines. And so when people call me this, it didn't feel right. Taking a stance in the truth shouldn't be bright. And that's when it kind of hit me. We're just scared of different things. The people who are calling me brave, they're scared of being labeled as transphobic or homophobic or I get called racist even, even though this has nothing to do with race. They're scared of those labels. They're scared of the cancel culture that we live in. And while that is scary, what's scarier to me is not taking a stance in the truth is lying. And that's what they're asking us because it could do.
Lia Thomas Says Her 'Feminist' Critics Are Misogynistic Transphobes
"Jim play that before you cut 7 if you win This is Leah Thomas A man who competed against women in a swimming competition although it was not a particularly great male swimmer And then wound up winning a bunch of these competitions And now is arguing that if you argue against that you're not a real feminist Take a listen to this They're like oh we respectfully as a woman as a trans woman or whatever We respect our identity We just don't think it's fair You can't really have that sort of half support where you're like oh I respect you as a woman here but not here Using the guys of feminism to sort of push transphobic beliefs And I think a lot of people in that camp sort of carry an implicit bias against trans people but don't want to fully manifest or speak that out And so they try to just play it off as this sort of half support They think about how twisted feminism quote unquote feminism has become Their arguments in order to exclude that anybody in the category you have to reduce women to reproductive capacity which is in my opinion extremely anti feminist I don't want to put those women down either And I know you don't want to do it because I see pain I see pain and the pain is coming from somewhere It's not you though It's a patriarchy And how can we get people to see that Holy Moses This is unbelievable folks
Larry Elder Announces Presidential Candidacy
"Let me say this about Larry elder. You know the old saying familiarity breeds contempt. Well, I am familiar with Larry elder for decades, and just breeds more respect. And he is announced his candidacy for president of the United States. I look forward to seeing him in the public on the stage of potential nominees for the Republican Party. Because he will blow minds. So Larry elder, I got to say, I think that if you're the nominee, I think you got a great chance of winning when you open your mouth. People hear things they have never heard before, in part because of your knowledge and because you make sense. And with that introduction, welcome. Well, then as always, thank you very much for having me. And by the way, your fingerprints are all over this announcement as your fingerprints were all over my announcement for governor and Greek hall election. By the way, my website is elder for president dot com and I'm asking people to throw it with something in the tip jar. Before we get started, though Dennis, if you don't mind, as always, when I listen to your show, and you say so many things that are provocative, you were talking about Leah Thomas and saying, how can this man sleep at night? And I could not agree with you more. Aside from being able to just obliterate women when he was a mediocre swimmer, it seems to me when you decide you're going to compete against women and suddenly you begin destroying it. It seemed to me there should be some sort of paying of consciousness. Something about this is not right. The fact that that doesn't seem to be the case with or her is amazing. It would be almost as if Joe Lewis competed against lightweights or middleweights or welterweights. The reason in men's boxing, they have categories because they want the competition to be fair. And somebody really, really heavy could destroy somebody really, really like the respective of how good the lightweight fighter is. The
Why Do We Even Have Women's Sports?
"Why is there why are there women sports? I would just like to ask this of Leah Thomas. Yay, you know what? I'll tell you. I now have a new answer to a question that many of you have over the years asked me. So Dennis, if you could have dinner or a lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be? I may now, I usually, you know my answer, right, my Friends. That's been my answer, and it's been an honest answer. But the. New answer I might consider is Leah Thomas. It would be a phenomenon for me. It would be an experience. And I would ask questions just to ask questions I wouldn't even argue. If you can swim against female swimmers and you think that's fair, why should we have female sports?
Caught in a Lie About Leah Thomas
"I got caught. I think I got caught fast. I was wrong about the Leah Thomas retransition. That is, I read it on a website and I didn't do my usual diligence. I am completely at fault for that. Thank God I called it immediately. But while I was looking at it there was an article in the Philadelphia inquirer a few days ago, no actually yesterday. Actually today. Former penned swimmer Leah Thomas spoke about her experience as a lightning rod, and the topic of trans athletes. On a podcast hosted by another trans athlete Skyler baelor, a former swimmer at Harvard. And Leah Thomas was saying that people didn't have. Her back, I'll use her preferred pronoun here. And they're like, oh, we respectfully as a woman as a trans woman or whatever. We respect her identity we just don't think it's fair. I think you can't really have that sort of half support. Really? I wrote, I wrote a year ago, a piece about Leah Thomas being a narcissistic selfish human being. Beyond belief,
Minnesota Judge Rules Men Can Compete in Women's Sports
"Do you realize that had I read this? If I were privy to the future, and I read this article to you ten years ago. You would have thought that it was not funny, and that I had lost my mind. People would actually believe prayer had lost his mind. That a judge would rule that in the state of Minnesota. You are legally obligated to allow men to compete in the women's division in powerlifting. If there's anything where that is more obviously achieving on the part of trans female, I would like to know what it is. Leah Thomas, the trans woman, how much did Leah Thomas win by? Was it 50 seconds? Some ridiculous number. If you realize 50 seconds, those races are usually determined within one second.
Biden Proposes Using Title IX to Stop Trans Athlete Bans
"Keep bringing it on, bringing it on bring it on. I mean, the Biden administration coming out with their brilliant ideas somehow, they're going to create equality for transgenders by threatening to strip any university of their federal funds if they do not allow a transgender to compete on the team that he or she so wants to compete on. So you'll recall, of course, title 9 went into action because the whole idea was that you couldn't be given all the football scholarships to the guys and not have some kind of incentive for girls to be in sports. So instead, they said, all right, if we're going to hand out a $100 million worth of scholarships this year, 50 million is going to go to the girls, 50 million is going to go to the boys, and that way we can do what we can to try and make things a little bit more fair. That's not right. Well, what happens when suddenly those boys say ah, I'm going to swim on the girls team. I'm going to swim on the girls team and now I get the scholarship instead of the girls. According to the Biden administration, you would have to give the guy the scholarship or you would risk losing all that money that you're getting from the federal government, including things like grants, it's really perplexing that Biden thinks that this is good for women. I mean, I don't think I'm going out on a limb here right now. I really don't. I think this is just sort of common sense, but apparently this is like, this is extreme. To say, maybe the guy shouldn't be swimming on the girls team. ESPN, they held Leah Thomas up as their woman to celebrate during women's history month. Leah Thomas, who look at her, I'm sorry. What is this? I mean, as a woman, you can't take any. Testosterone shots. I mean, you can't use steroids to make yourself bigger, but if you're a man, now identifying as a woman, then you're home free.
Governor Ron DeSantis Takes Bold Stand Against Transgender Issues
"Ron DeSantis governor of Florida making his position very, very clear at liberty, university, saying if you try this, if you dare to try, mutilating a child or giving them puberty blockers so that they can change their born sex in the state of Florida, you are going to lose your license as a doctor. It is also wrong for physicians to pump minors with puberty blockers or to perform sex change operations on them. Coming up Chloe Cole, who was transitioned by doctors in California at the raw age of 12, went through an operation at the age of 15, while she's going to join us to tell us why Ron DeSantis is absolutely positively right. She is now suing Kaiser health because of what these doctors did to her. That's coming up. But in the meantime, Ron DeSantis, he wasn't done. He went after Leah Thomas, and he went after ESPN ESPN, of course, being owned by Disney don't forget, Florida and Disney in the thick of it, right? That battle continues. Anyway, he made the point. It is wrong to have a swimmer compete for three years on the men's swim team, switch to the women's team, and then win the women's national championship. That is a fraud. That is wrong. You know, I don't really see what is so controversial about this. Because when you think about Leah Thomas, the Thomas was coming in 554th in the 200 freestyle, while competing as a man. That was the last year we had Thomas had on the men's team, 2018 through 19. And then what do you know, she suddenly number one, she, let's just go with the name here. Leah Thomas, rather than the day thing and get all confused. Leah Thomas, beating out young women who had been born women and thus didn't have the testosterone in their system for years and years and years that would have made them stronger. Sir, you're out of order. It's not fair.
Steve Gill: Feminists Don't Care About Women's Sports
"Again, it's just one of those weird things and you look at Leah Thomas on O'Reilly gains from the university of Kentucky, who is actually from the Nashville area. She's been fighting this good fight to protect biological women in college sports, and of course she ended up tying with Leah Thomas and she's the one who didn't get the prize because she happened to be a biological female. And they're going to destroy women's sports. I mean, at some point, we couldn't have separate, but equal teams for blacks and whites. Why do we have separate but equal teams for women and men if there is no distinction? If the Democrats can't even define what a woman is, why don't we just have teams? And there'll be a volleyball team. And the best volleyball players will make the team. What are your men or women? And that would really kind of eradicate the effect of title 9 that forces colleges and high schools to spend a lot of money promoting women's sports where now you have guys that are going over and competing on the women's sports teams. Why have that distinction do away with the things and unfortunately that would deprive a lot of women of athletic opportunities because men are going to have more physical attributes in most sports and you would destroy women's sports. But that really I think is what some of these anti feminists fake women want. They don't care about women or they wouldn't be doing this stuff. And the advertisers, the ESPN and others that want to celebrate these fake women are not doing a service to women's sports at all. Any more than Nike, supporting some guy who's flat tested to promote sports bras for women and leggings for women, I just don't believe that women are going to see this guy Dylan, whatever his name is and think, oh, I want to go buy me some Nike that's going to make me look like that guy when they can go buy Lulu mon and actually look good.
Turning the Transgender Tide With Riley Gaines
"Now is Riley gaines. A former professional and professional former college athlete and swimmer who had a compete against Thomas, the man who is a cheater and she should have probably won the national championship if it wasn't for the man. Riley, welcome to the program last time you were here. We made a lot of headlines. And so welcome back. Well, thank you so much for having me on again, Charlie. Of course. All right, I'm gonna play this piece of tape for our audience. This is an ESPN little biopic, if you will. Celebrating women's history month by showing a man. Thomas, play cut 18. In 2022, swimmer Leah Thomas became the first transgender athlete to win an NCAA Division I championship by winning the 500 freestyle. The Texas native competed for three seasons on the men's swim team at the University of Pennsylvania. She began her transition after her sophomore season. She said she holds her persistence, serves a larger purpose. People will say, oh, she just transitioned, so she would have an advantage. They could win. I transitioned to be happy. Why are the women at ESPN putting up with this? I don't know, Riley, your thoughts. I have no idea why the women are putting up with this. I don't understand. It's like they don't see the irony of celebrating a man during women's history month. How are these women okay within? It begs the question, where are the feminists? Where are the women? Where is the group who wore the pink hats? Who wanted to empower women real women? I can't even answer that. I will say though that I just admire states shield who's an ESPN reporter. She does SportsCenter, I believe. And she stood up to this and she said this is wild. This is wrong. She recognizes the differences between men and women, men and women, and why it's unfair and harmful for women to have men and women sports and in our locker rooms.
March Madness: Boston, South Carolina women reach Final Four
"Unbeaten South Carolina advanced to its third straight final four topping Ohio State 86 75 and the NCAA women's basketball elite 8. Leah Boston scored 22 points and ziya cook had 18 to lead her team back from a 6 point first half deficit. I think we just had to start attacking them the same way they were attacking us. Coach kept telling us that we see harder plans. So we got to make sure we're doing the same thing. But they definitely were getting down on downhill on us and we just wanted to make sure we did the same thing may lay ups and just became great defenders. The gamecocks next play Iowa and Friday's national semifinal. Diamond Miller scored 24 for Maryland in the loss. Josh rowntree AP sports.
ESPN Includes Transgender Swimmer in Women's History Month
"So listen to this from the daily mail this weekend, ESPN has been condemned by a former champion college swimmer for including transgender swimmer Leah Thomas in their segment devoted to women's history month. Wow. I wrote in a recent column that there is no more sheep like behavior. There are many tide with them, but sports, how long is the Riley gains video? And I was given last month. Is that correct? Yeah, okay, I want to hear it and I want my listeners to hear it. There's no more sheep like group than sports writers. ESPN is composed of cowards. And I'm not surprised. Well, so much of our media is composed of such, look, it's a real problem because whenever I speak of such group a oh, they take the award for sheep like behavior, they're just a herd that sports writers, well, then I think of college presidents and college deans. And college professors, can you get more sheep like than they?
"leah" Discussed on Teachers in America
"You know, I close every podcast asking teacher, what is your walk up song and Leah the reason is I believe teachers are truly the top athlete in our society. And we deserve that walked up song and if no one else is playing for it, it should be in our head and in our headphones as we walk into the building into the classroom. So I want to know what's your walk up song, what should we all add to our playlist? Oh, I love this question so much. I am a musical lover. And so that's difficult to narrow down, right? It's like, which one of your children is your favorite disrespectful? But right now, and in the world that I'm in, this world of advocacy and I'm really sharing messages of hopefully hope to people, but also to bring a little bit of awareness to issues that are going on. And maybe to inspire others to make small changes, my song would be brave by Sara Bareilles, say what you want to say, let the words come out. Honestly, I want to see you be brave. This is a time in the world where we need to be sharing our stories. We need to be sharing the things that are working and not working, advocating for what is right, and what needs to change. And people don't know what they don't know. We have to be brave enough to tell them what they need to know. So they can know what they need to do. All right, well, now probably my phone is picked up Sara Bareilles, which is on my playlist and she's the writer of one of my favorite shows on Broadway. So Leah, I love how quickly you can make a connection, even if it's over a podcast and not getting to see each other. Thank you for being for being you for choosing teaching and using your platform to make those connections and help teachers continue to realize you're awesome. You've got this and if you don't just ask and find
Chris Kohls and Sebastian Discuss Powers Boothe in 'Red Dawn'
"The performance from past booth? Well, here's the thing. They needed a character like this. Yeah, totally. Because otherwise it's just a bunch of kids and it's crazy and it's not particularly controlled. You bring in this guy who says, you go, okay, this guy is a real soldier, and he respects these folks. He grows to respect them. And he trains them a little bit and he helps them out. And it becomes a much more believable story this way. Right. So you need this sort of like not Obi-Wan Kenobi type figure, but you know somebody who can come in and train them up a little bit. And yeah, he's the perfect actor for he does a great job. There's a little bit of a weird relationship with him and Leah Thompson. There was a scene that was cut out. Were they going to make love? So who's been raped by the Soviets, totally damaged woman, and then she latches onto him and then they remove that. I think they should have left that in. It was allowed her to sort of recover psychologically, maybe it kind of shows that. And then tell the story. Did you catch the funny story of his death scene what he said about the line milius gave him he said, I can't deliver that line. Did you catch that in the making of? Yes. So everybody cheered for him. He's on the turret. He was throwing the hand grenade in to the Tang. And they get it in the gun him down. And he's like, dying, his death last words is the smoke grenade is billowing around him. He says, shoot straight for once. You army pukes. And he said, I can't say they can't be my death live. And he delivered it and he said in the movie theater. The air force hates the army, it's hilarious.
Red Dawn: A Look Back at the Actors in This Cold War Masterpiece
"Let's start with the stars. Let's talk about the acting, the fact that these were kids, it was the first movie for Charlie Sheen, Swayze is the leader's jet. Told us, as an actor, talk to us, the performances. Yeah, I mean, these guys were young. They were all young in the behind the scenes documentary. They were all talking about how they didn't know what they were doing. You know, Swayze was the only one with any real experience. And so he kind of quasi trained the other actors. And milius said to Swayze call him off and said, you're my general, you're my lieutenant. So I'm not going to talk to these kids. You're in charge. You are in the wilderness in the mesa. And you have to be the father figure. And what was crazy was that I think Patrick Smith says he had got frostbite. And they all talked about that. They were all just dying. Right. I mean, legitimately like freezing to death and but they were so passionate about making movies and being actors and stuff they were willing to suffer through that and it seemed to me like they'd never ever again after that experience such a difficult shoot. This is the first thing I wrote down when I watched because I love them. I actually like the making. I'm such a geek. I love the making of more than I like the movies sometimes. And they interviewed every character sir Thomas Howell Thomson gray, Swayze. Every single one of these kids said it was horrific, literally frostbite, and they say it was the greatest experience I've had working in a movie. How crazy is that? Running around. I loved every second of it. Learning how to shoot machine guns. Took them to actually shoot real machine guns, see Thomas Hal turns out. He's a country kid who knew how to ride. He taught them all how to be cowboys. It's just funny because he doesn't look like. No, but if you see at the end, the horse handling, the way Swayze is controlling that horse, the way Leah, these people look by the end of the movie. Pros, like, rough riders.
Riley Gaines: NCAA Reduced a Victory to a Photo Opp for Lia Thomas
"I remember seeing you and the photographs and of you standing up there on the winter's podiums and just looking at this at this guy, and I understand, if I recall the story correctly, they gave him the trophy and they said, yeah, we're going to send yours in the mail. Correct. So we actually tied the exact same time down to the hundredth of a second, which now looking back, I think God put me in that place for this to inspire how it has. But we tried and we go behind the awards podium in the NAA official looks at me and says, great job, you guys tied. We only have one trophy. It's going to go to Leah. And so I quickly questioned this, which I could tell he obviously wasn't prepared for. And so when I asked him why he was adamant on giving the trophy to Leah, he told me that Leah had to have it for a photo focuses. And so I knew what had occurred the wrong in terms of the competition and walk room. But when I heard that Leah had to have it for a picture, it felt like we as female athletes had been reduced to a photo op. It was almost as if everything that we had dedicated our lives to an organization we've dedicated our lives to the NCAA, we're so quick to turn their back on us to validate the feelings and the identity of a man. At the expense of us and our feelings in our identity, which was just beyond me and that's when it really became apparent that someone needed to speak out about this and it kind of hit me that because truthfully I was waiting for someone else too. I thought surely a coach or someone I was just relying on someone else, but it hit me that if we as female athletes weren't willing to stick up for ourselves, how could we necessarily expect someone else to stick up for us? Riley, I
Riley Gaines: A Biological Man Dressing in the Women's Locker Room
"I was really taken aback by some of the reporting that you shared about, what was actually happening in those locker rooms, what was what was that all about? Give our listeners an idea of what you and the other swimmers had to go through. Right. So we knew, of course, we would be competing with Thomas the NCAA and got about three weeks before the meat, which obviously was a shock. And we knew was wrong. But we were not forewarned as to what the locker room scene would look like. I think we all naturally assumed that Leah would have accommodations specifically for Leah as, you know, this is different. Biologically, a different anatomy than what we were dealing with when we were used to. And so that is not what we saw. The NCAA gave us no forewarning, did not ask for our consent. We did not give our consent, but that first day we turned around and the locker room and there's a 6 four biological man undressing in an area where we're undressing and I truthfully this felt worse than the competition piece. It felt like, you know, not even a year or two years ago, this would have been some form of sexual harassment. This is voyeurism. This is, you know, this would make this person a pervert, but now not only was it just allowed, it almost seems as if we are we. I mean, the incident way in the University of Pennsylvania and a lot of these large universities and these woke organizations. It's almost as if they were celebrating this. And you are, again, a very accomplished athlete what 12 time all American three time southeastern conference champion.
The Horror Stories Around Penn Swimmer Lia Thomas
"I've been listening to a champion collegiate swimmer. She's girl, by the way. Oh, she's a young lady. She's a woman now. She tells these horror stories. Of this guy who's now known as Leah Thomas, walking around the University of Pennsylvania locker room naked, now he says he's a girl. But if he is clear to everybody there, ready and a girl. But she's the bad person. In this Thomas, when he was swimming as a guy was at best a mediocre swimmer. Wasn't setting any records wasn't really winning. I mean, he was hundreds and hundreds of places out of first place. Then all of a sudden, he says, oh, you know what? Actually a girl. Starts swimming as a girl now ordinarily, there would be somebody who said, wow, hang on a second there. You're not, you've checked the wrong box on this form. You're trying to join the wrong team. We have a men's swim team, and that's where you belong. Instead, they said, sure, come on in. And so he suits up in a girl's bathing suit. And all of a sudden is winning all sorts of competitions. Setting all sorts of records and breaking other records. But he's just not a, not a girl. He's not a woman.
Privacy Is a Human Right – and the 118th Congress Must Defend It
"All right, next up we turn to this piece from fight for the future's Leah and SEO hey, called privacy is a human right, and the 118th Congress must defend it. As the 118th U.S. Congress begins, the stakes surrounding our privacy rights have never been higher. For decades, lawmakers have utterly failed to defend everyday people. Much less those who are the most vulnerable online, from dangerous encroachments into our digital privacy. Just last week, the American civil liberties union revealed a massive surveillance drag net of people who use services like Western Union to send remittances. Now both sides of the aisle begin 2023 having painted a target on the backs of privacy preserving software projects and those who build them. This attitude poses a real danger not only in the U.S., but for people across the globe. It's time for software projects that value privacy to get organized. This is why our organization fight for the future has released a letter signed by 40 plus open-source decentralized and or privacy preserving projects that asks lawmakers to protect a pro privacy future. Signatories on this letter include Tor, the blockchain association, nim, protocol labs, proton, zcash, to denote, and mysterium. We have four simple asks. Constitutional human rights protections both on and offline. The first asked to Congress is straightforward. Do more to protect our constitutional human right to privacy. The right to privacy has always been a foundational principle of the U.S.. There are express or implied rights to privacy in the first, third, fourth, 5th, 9th and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Even the legal victory that established the constitutionally protected right to code was about encryption, meaning it was about privacy. Unfortunately, that decision did not settle the law. Threats to the right to code in the right to privacy are inextricably entwined, especially as more of our lives move into digital spaces where our rights are ignored and invasive surveillance as the default. To seriously and vigorously defend these rights, many in Congress would need to shift their thinking on the simple act of writing code. To recognize that this freedom is core to the technologies that empower democracy and must be defended. That also means a representatives must analyze the potential impacts of new laws and regulatory action on First Amendment protections when drafting new legislation.
"leah" Discussed on The BosBabes
"Boyfriend because New York in the summertime is awesome, especially Coney Island, where you have the awesome weather surrounded by water. So maybe we will see you out there. And if you do ever do that competition, you know I'm getting you back on this podcast to simply talk about to talk about it, Leah. But before we wrap up the show, I want to ask you, since we are on the topic of competitions, you guys are now listening to my girl Leah, chut keever. We're talking all about competitive food eating, this is probably going to be cut into a two part episode. So this is part two of my podcast episode with Leah. You guys heard her talk all about an episode one about where she grew up in the UK, her mom was a chef, her dad was very hardworking. Leah and her brother were very competitive, all throughout their lives. It sounds like they might still be very competitive now. Obviously, she is. And we are talking all about the fact that she figured out sort of at a young age that she was right at bodybuilding, awesome at keeping her great physique while still being able to eat a lot of food. And she does that through not even really training. She loves to fast and she knows her body. She doesn't really have a gag reflex. She absolutely crushes it and her competitive mindset. I feel like is what really drives her to being so excellent at what she does. So upcoming competitions Leah, do you have anything in their foreseeable future this fall? So I've got some exclusives for you. I'm planning a I'm planning the world record, in fact I'm planning 8 of them. The first one is tomorrow, and I'm planning it with a lot of my followers here in the UK. I found the record for the most people simultaneously eating fish and chips online.
"leah" Discussed on The BosBabes
"Lifestyle sports podcast. I'm your host, Brittany Baldi, and we are talking to my girl, Leah. She is a professional eater out of the UK. You guys just heard her talking all about crushing breakfast challenge and she said to me basically that she's done with eating breakfast for a while and girl, I don't blame you. I don't think I could be eating breakfast for a little bit either after all that food, but I wanted to slide on in and start talking about the fish eating competition, but before we do that, if there's anything within a competition that you are either a unable to eat because you don't like it or B, you have an allergic reaction to it like say you're not allowed to eat bacon. Are you able to switch the food and maybe have extra sausage? I felt like I had you ask you that question. So generally speaking, no, if you have any allergies from doing these challenges, unfortunately not allergic to anything. And I very much see things as a job. And so I don't ever say that I can't or that I won't on the pure basis that I don't like the food. I know that I mean, I find it a little bit deeper to do things like that and I am not a diva. So I tried to sort of see it as a job and be professional about it and whatever the challenge may be, I just kind of tackle it. Even the stuff that I don't like, I try to get that out of the way first. I'm good to know. I was kind of curious about that because say for example, you are a vegan and you're like, okay, well, I can only do vegan competitions or I'm only going to eat stuff that doesn't have bacon in it. What's your mindset? So I love it. You are just so competitive. You're like, I'm just going to eat whatever. This is a job. I need to just get it done. So I like to see things as a level playing field and to me it wouldn't be fair, but yeah, I see things as a level playing field. So if my competitor who was set a record eating ten bacon sandwiches, but I said, can you swap the bacon for mushrooms so that it suits my diet? It's not the same challenge, so it's not the same thing. And so it's not a competition. And you're not actually going head to head with this person who is your rival. So how I see it is that whether you like tomatoes or not, eat the tomatoes because it's part of the challenge and that is my savage opinion about it. I love it. I'm so glad that I asked that question because that actually makes complete sense. If you're going up against somebody, again, we keep throwing his name out there, but like a Joey chestnuts who can house 76 hot dogs and X amount of time, if you Leah, you go in there and you go, hey guys, I don't really like hot dogs. Can I swap it out for sausages? The people might be like, okay, well, that doesn't really make sense because then you're technically not doing a hot dog challenge. So I fully love the fact that you are into the competing into taking whatever it is, even if you don't like tomatoes or mushrooms, you're just gonna go in there and you're gonna eat it because as you just mentioned, that's a good way to look at it. That's part of the competition. If you don't

"And I also can burn rip through calories very easily. It sounds like you can as well. So I find it very interesting that you try not to train that much. Like I love the fact that you're doing it more in a healthy way where you're not drinking two gallons of water, you're not eating a ton of lettuce before like I've heard some people like to eat lettuce because I guess it stretches their stomach or they drink a lot of water to clean out their system. So it's like you are trying to do it more with the fasting and simply just being hungry and sitting down and just ripping through the food. Super awesome. So now that we're on the topic of food, Leah, I have to ask you if you had one food to eat that you had to eat in a large quantity. If you could choose, what would that item be? And why? Oh, okay. So this is another quite common question and normally it's if you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? It's a really difficult thing for me to answer. But I guess challenge wise, the ones that I enjoy the most are probably burritos. I really, really love Mexican food, and I really love how easy burritos are to eat. So probably if I was to do a big challenge, it would be like a burrito or like fajitas or quesadillas or something, you know, something like tacos, just like a hundred tacos. I look amazing and it was taste amazing. So I'm completely down. And if you were going to go on a date night or out to dinner with your family, and if you're not competing. And again, you already mentioned that you don't really train for these competitions anyways.

"Guys, back to the episode baby. So it came to point sort of in high school that I ended up wanting to be skinny because back then we're talking like 2014, 2015, like the woman talking about 2004, 2005. Well, 2004 1005, I was 14, 15 years old. And the world was about size zero. Everything was about size zero and I was really not that and never that. And I thought that being thin was going to be the making of me. I really thought boys are going to like me and I am going to be desirable and I will be happy and I wish that was the case. I learned I ended up learning a lot about nutrition through a lot of yo yo dieting, fad dieting, learning that none of those diets work. But in doing them and learning that process, you kind of learn the tolerances of your body and you learn your body very well. When I came to my gap year between college and university, I ended up going traveling that was in Canada for a few months and I just dropped a ton of weight and it's just because I was moving for more I was moving more and eating less and I think because of that I ended up losing weight so I then started losing weight and understanding okay I need to move more and eat less food but my muscle mass just didn't stay because I was so active. I just didn't have enough sustenance to keep that mass on my body and then came to England. I was living this skinny life skinny girl and nobody recognized me and everyone was complimenting me on my weight loss and things like that and suddenly I'm wearing dresses which I never wore before and my whole outlook on body image completely shifted but energy levels not good attitude, not good mood swings. I've never been a movie person in my life until I was very hungry. And that's just not okay. So turned out that my boyfriend at the time was a bodybuilder and he taught me kind of the world of bodybuilding. I started doing that and learning about nutrition like good nutrition, learning to eat and cook properly the food that you need to keep your body going and grow some lean muscle mass and the rest has been an absolute journey. So it's around 21 when I started bodybuilding on 31 now. Wow. You literally just gave me so much amazing information that I don't even know where to begin. First off, I think it is awesome that your mom was a chef. So you growing up with your brother and your dad, you guys must have had a lot of amazing food put in front of you. So maybe that kind of sparked your interest and wow, this food tastes good. I want to eat a good amount of it because you mentioned that you and your brother were also very competitive, that you enjoyed eating a lot when you were younger. And I really appreciate you getting open and vulnerable on here about body image and weight loss and kind of how you had to deal with being bullied when you were younger. So thank you so much, Leah for opening up about all of that. I want to first start off by having you talk a little bit more about your mom being a chef..

"Stay with me. We have the gorgeous. Be lovely. She is from the UK. Her name is Leah. Shut keeper. And this girl, if you guys can believe it, she looks like a freaking swimsuit model. But she has 23 official world titles, and she's the number one UK female competitive eater, with 140,000 followers on Instagram. This woman is absolutely crushing it. So via first off, I want to thank you for coming on here and I could not be more thrilled to have you as a special guest. How are you? What an introduction. I don't know how I'm going to follow this now. People are going to have this crazy expectation, but I'm all good. I'm really excited to be speaking to you too. Obviously, I love that sports podcast, a covering of competing. That is something that is totally out there. So new and I love to see it. So thank you for having me on. Yes, I am super excited. So again, we talked about your big social media following. So you all know that I have a lifestyle sports podcast. Obviously, from the boss papers fanatics that are listening, I was like, you know what? I want to have somebody that's completely different on this podcast. I've had on NHL players, NFL players. I've had on female race car drivers. I've had on reality TV competitors because, again, those of you guys that are listening know that I have a competitive reality TV background myself. But when I came across Leah's Instagram, I was like, I need to sleep in this girl's DMs. I need to figure out what the heck is going on. I love the fact that you are from a different country. Obviously, I'm recording right now from the U.S.. For those of you guys that don't know, I actually found out and I'm going to probably sound stupid saying this, but obviously I know there's different time zones, but Leah is 5 hours ahead of where I'm at right now in the U.S.. So are you actually in London right now? No, so I'm in the second city Birmingham, which is about two to three hours north of London. Super awesome. I can not wait to pick your brain on all of the UK because I've actually never been there before, but before we get into everything, as far as where you grew up, food eating competitions, and of course at some point you know I'm going to ask you if you would ever compete against Joey chestnuts. For those of you guys that are listening, if you do not know who Joey chestnuts is, this man has so many records for hot dog eating. Every 4th of July, they do a big hot dog eating competition. And Coney Island right in New York, and I think he just recently set a record for 76 hot dogs, eaten. I don't know how long it took him to eat. But this is where Lee is going to come in because she's going to answer all these questions for us. But first, Leah, if you could have a superpower, my lady, what the heck would it be?.

"And as promised, this is Leah Belding Show. Be sure to have your paper and pencil out because we're going to conclude this show with some very important things that you need to know. And I talked about the hard facts. The hard facts you can. You can get hospital records about this. In North Texas alone, thousands of, uh, sexual assaults on women have taken place, for example, just this past year in Dallas. There were 1284 assaults and Tarrant County 608. Collin County. 221 didn't County 160. So it's it's It's an average of about 3000 women being sexually assaulted that are being reported at hospitals because these people actually lit. They didn't die there were actually lived. To report to go to the hospital and to tell their story. This does not include the assault that, uh, we're actually, uh, you know, the people died, and this is a very serious subject. And, uh, if you don't believe me, you can get your your own report. It's called the Dallas Fort Worth Hospital. Council report. You can call 972719 49 100 Get that report. They do a report every year because knowledge and awareness means power and to have power. You must have preparation And this is exactly what my show is about today with my co host. Patrick Patrick Dumas. You spell that Dumas do, Um, A S. Patrick, I want to be able for you to tell them exactly how to get in touch with you to sign up for your classes. You have, like a twitter account. What do you go by on Twitter? Yeah, it's a my urban defense. And I give all kinds of tips on that just endless amount of information on there. Um, where where they can direct message me through that, Or they can write me and my email at woman's urban defense. Yahoo dot com. Um, and typically, you know, I go to them. I do right now. Personal training where I can go to them and and depending again, they have to qualify. I mean, there's certain things that may Disqualified. You know, some, like based on if they have had surgeries back or neck surgeries, you know recently or, you know, um, just certain requirements that First thing to be able to qualify for the training. Um, I did read your notes that you really don't like to take on people who have committed felonies, right? Yeah. We don't want to teach anybody that has had a bad background because if they further use that, possibly not saying they would, but if they did continue In that route and ended up using what we teach them, Um than you know, that's that's not good. So we want to work with people that Have a plus. It's our standards as our international school standards and with the International European Martial Arts Association. It's an international group of many different martial arts styles composed together and, uh, ran by grandmaster is borne out of Florida. With a top instructor. There is extra is retired police officer and, um you know, so there are certain requirements that should be met with that. Um Have you ever thought about writing a self defense manual that you can take to the school board and get it into the to their curriculum, especially for uh, the high school kids or junior high? Um, yeah, I have. I have thought about it. But I haven't actually done it yet. I think actually have been martial arts curriculum within all the schools. The colleges do have it. So why not the high schools? Have it? Yes. Why not? You know, I mean, Kids or approached my strangers and you know teenage girls and you know whatever, of different ages, whether it's elementary, middle school and high school. I think they all really should start offering something and they could start out with Basic karate, and then we're more into and as you as they get into middle school get into more of the jujitsu, And then, as they get more into the high school, they get into more of the weapons, the France and disarming and skills with combination of digits and karate styles and again going back. To my style, the Budo tai jitsu it has, you know, it's got nine different schools based on 18 different styles. It's actually one of the original. Mm hmm. Mixed martial arts forms because it's got 18 different styles composed into one, Okay. I want to make sure that they know how to get in touch with you via Facebook. Do you go by? Do, Miss Patrick. Correct on Facebook, right? Yeah, I use that. My primarily for, um, promoting my feature films, which are primarily action martial arts, you know, genre type films. You always recruiting for people who want to be in your in your films you're working on to now. Is that correct? Right to feature films? Uh, okay. So any any one of you out there? Who are interested in being in one of Patrick's films. Be sure to contact him via Facebook. He goes under Duma's Do, um, a as Patrick on Facebook. Is that correct? Right? And, uh, his website is not up, but he has a Twitter account. And do you want to give your telephone number? Just they can reach me through the email or through direct message on Twitter or Facebook. Lincoln? Yes, LinkedIn under Patrick demos. Think, Patrick. He supposed that P A. T. R I C K Duma's do, um, a s. I think what you've had to say today has been extremely extremely helpful. It could save thousands of lives. You know when someone goes missing, Uh, go to the police. You know you the police will not do anything. They have to wait a certain number of hours before they actually go looking for that person. Isn't that true, right? Yeah, Um, And that's the problem. You know, by the time hours passed, and that person could be long gone both somewhere to, uh, some foreign country and again, That's the extreme case. You know, there's many cases that are just simply Assault in your own home or salts in your own car or walking down the street. You know that? But that's again something to be aware of, Uh, one of the main reasons also that I wanted to come on the show is that I'm I am looking to do more of a group class type training. So I am looking since I'm relocating on my studios from North Texas, looking for a space to where they wanted to. Share that time and their space and share the lease and I can go in there and teach classes in exchange. If they have some downtime and their space. It's not where it's not being used..

"I'll see you inside the definitely definitely. Yeah i mean you said so there. There's so many points that you hit on that. I wanna that to Definitely follow up with and for one it would be a. Let's just go at this in finesse. Really quick and i want you to talk about like how. How did you come up with this concept. Because i saw that you know you've been a vegetarian since you were six. Okay okay. How does how does that happen. Leah how how does one become a vegetarian at the age of six well. It's a little bit funny. I just have never really enjoyed the texture of meat. It was always a texture thing for me. And i just never really enjoyed it so much. My family didn't eat a ton of meat. Nobody else family was a vegetarian at that point. But i just didn't like it too much and then one person i think i was in first grade and my grandparents came over and my dad cooked something. That was just really gross. Looking to me. I feel like it might have been chopped liver. I'm not really sure but it was totally rare and it was dripping red. And i just remember sitting at the table on christmas being like this is what we need is that looks disgusting and my stubborn little six year old. Sounds like i'm never eating meat again. And i told that to my mom. You know that came true. Because i would need it after that. So it's been it's been a wild was fifteen years that i've been alleged -tarian but i- overtime really started learning more about nutrition and the environmental benefits of being a vegetarian. And how did make it work as an athlete and actually be a very healthy lifestyle. So you're really good about being a vegetarian now. And i just don't honestly have any desire to eat any meat. But it's one thing that i don't like to push on other people because i know everybody has their own relationship with food and their own lights in dislikes Kitchen and i know so many people that absolutely love me. And if it's something that makes you happy and makes you feel good than i don't wanna tell you -tarian so all of the recipes on my food. Blog are vegetarian. But that's just because that's what i make in the kitchen so for people that are plant based or wanting to go plant based i would say i love you check on my blog because everything in there doesn't have meat but it is. It's interesting for.

I hope you're right even though my pessimistic streak is like. I don't know what's going to make that happen. The the idea of family farm is very very small in the future because agriculture is becoming a lot more corporate and lot more investors being involved. And unfortunately it's very difficult for a family farm to keep their head above the water. So that's that's kind of a little bit of a strive to for. It's like a dying breed. You gotta keep fighting kind of thing. Keep fighting till the end but It would be nice to get a break every once in a while. Don't get me wrong. We do go on vacations every once in a while like we take the kids to lake and we have a little place up in winthrop and we go over there.

He's a very very positive person like he he does. He sees the sun on a cloudy day kind of person so which is kind of the opposite of me. I see.

Let's overhead and you're covering the whole truth ice isis heavy and you're gonna damage potentially damage the tree branch scene by storm. Yes yes and so Some some of the ice will protect but And it's kind of a tricky situation too because if you have your irrigation going on and there's ice and you have missed let's say you turn the water off we'll that miss can actually crystallize and do damage on your fruit. So you can have the whole bottom party tree freeze out. In the here comes. Here comes thinning time. And you're like well. Where's all the fruit on the tree.
