"I do glean so much useful info from the double tap show and listen to it while spinning on my stationary exercise bike. Yeah, actually, yes, I believe it or not, for that show, I did write down a whole list of shortcuts and we just haven't posted them yet, but we'll get them into the show notes and you mean you have a place to put that, I don't know if we do. Where would you post it? I suppose the show notes, I guess. So we don't have a blog. We need a newsletter. We need to belong. Okay, let's get a blog. No, I want to blog. Okay. Thank you, Lindy.

Should We Be Worried About Illegals Voting in Elections?
"Right now on the Facebook page, Todd. This could backfire, talking about sending all the illegals to the sanctuary cities and states. She says some blue states allow illegals to vote. That's one of the reasons they were loading up red states. You know, Lindy's got a great point here. You folks in Georgia know all about this. So for years, you had Republican governors who were wanting to turn Georgia into a sanctuary state for refugees. And over the past decade or so, you guys had a massive influx of refugees from other countries. We're not talking about New York or San Francisco. We're talking about other countries that flooded into the state of Georgia. And it literally changed the voting dynamic. Georgia rock solid red went blue in the last elections and a lot of that is because of the massive number of refugees, not to mention illegals that moved into the state of Georgia. So Lindy does have a point there, but again, you got to get him out of Texas. You just got to get him out of Texas. Got to get him out of Florida. He got to get him out of Arizona. It is unfair for the people who live in those border states to have to absorb all of the chaos and the carnage that is wrought by the illegal alien invasion.

"Once a week, making sure that you are living your best life that you're enjoying what you're building because at the end of the day, if you don't have the end in mind, then why are you doing it? So my end is to either franchise. Well, to work less, that's why for me personally, I set up up in a day to work less. As well as to sell or to franchise. Whatever that looks like. Of course, the businesses will always evolving. And earlier I mentioned the planning out the business model so that you have where do you want to be in a year, the three year and the 5 year mark, right? All of that is built around your revenue stream and your profit and loss. And that's something that I've learned along the way that you can have these goals, but how do you get there? What are the tangible actions that you need to take to get there? And the easiest and my opinion, once you run the numbers and you have them in a place where you can easily access them and play around with them, maybe once a quarter once a month is that, you know, every day you're just reminding yourself why you're here. Yeah, I like that. I like that a lot. Well, Lindy, I'll tell you what, it's time to take a short break. We're going to hear a word from one of our sponsors and then we'll be right back..

"And I thought Nashville, people are there living and breathing country music. Every single day, writing usually two songs a day, so they're running hundreds of songs a year. So somebody like me is going to come out for a week, really more of a pop writer and be like, oh, let me write country songs. So I learned a long time ago. I just write what I write. Relationships are everything in every business and in the music business. Of course. Tell me how. Being a good person and being good at what you do so that even if you haven't had a hit in a minute, people still want to get with you. You have to listen. For me, I think that's the key to my longevity. I always think, okay, maybe this young person is going to bring something different or if I'm in a room writing a country song, I should probably listen to somebody who's writing this music all the time or if it's something more R&B, I'm going to and there's sometimes where I lead because I just have it. With my regular co writers, it's like it doesn't matter who has it. That day in my dis be, I've got it, and it's like, let me run. And they might have it let them run. It doesn't matter. We respect each other. And I think you let somebody just kind of go. And it's about to hang, it's about being cool. It's about treating everybody with equal respect. It's about treating that person who might be somebody's assistant and 5 years from now, I know an assistant who's now a huge A&R person. I mean, that happens all the time. Look at Trisha Yearwood and Faith Hill, they were receptionists of capital records and you never get to never riches. You keep your head down and you do the work and hopefully you've got some longevity. Everybody needs somebody who really believes in them, Lindy, has there been someone in your life who, even in tough times, maybe if you hadn't had a hit for a while, who believes in you and says you can do this? You know, there have been right now, I think it's I'm working with a woman who named Anna schloffer. And she's kind of my manager. I mean, we have sort of an interesting arrangement, but she believes me so strongly and she gives me faith in myself because I haven't had a hit in a minute. And it's also the pandemic. Everything's been strange for the last two years. But she's just always setting me up with stuff and believing in me and putting me in these great situations and I just appreciate it so much. And there's been different people. This woman ran a Gillespie who was the first person that signed me. Donna Kasey, who then took over. Benjamin Graf, the people at cobalt, who I've been with cobalt for ten years. Sass, who runs cobalt and Jamie and, you know, there's just been a lot of different people. I wouldn't say I had one particular person who was my mentor, but there's been a lot of people along the way that have kept me believing in myself. Is there a song in the world that you listen to, whether it's at home on your computer or you hear it in the car that you say to yourself, I wish I wrote that song. You know, it's a lot of them. Huge song right now called ABCDE FU. And I just keep saying, how could I not have thought of that? It's so brilliant, and it's so simple, and it's so right there, and I just kick myself. I was saying that today, how could I not have thought about it? How could nobody have to ABCDE, FU? So that one just kills me. You know, there's always new challenges. There's always the next thing and people thinking outside of the box and you know, I teach once a year, the Johnny Mercer project is at northwestern, I'm about to do my fourth year. It's a week long. I encourage anybody to apply for it, because there's anything for musical theater, the country, to R&B to pop. But I always tell the students, don't be a follower, be a leader. Don't try to copy what's on the radio, try to do what only you can do, right about yourself, only you have your story. That's why somebody like Billie Eilish will come out of the blue and be like, she doesn't sound like anybody else. Or Doja Cat. Now these are not necessarily my cups of tea, but I admire that they have forged new paths that new music that nobody else has heard. Speaking of music that you're doing now, you mentioned early on in our interview, musical theater that that seems to be something you're coming back around again. Yeah, even though I never wrote a musical, I was asked to write a musical and it's actually the music is rock, pop, country, and bluegrass. And I was asked to do it because they wanted somebody who understood musical theater, but was not like a typical traditional musical theater writer. So I'm very excited about this. And then my brain has just started writing a musical review, very musical theater, because I used to write comedy songs and powder songs and all these kinds of songs and I would hide that because I wanted to be cool and write pop music. Now I've been doing this for so long, and I'm like, I don't care I want to do it all. It's really been a long ride for you with so many different genres of music. What do you wish you knew Lindy when you first got started as a songwriter? That if I was in an uncomfortable situation, if I was in a session that felt wrong, with people who did not feel like they were treating me right or got me or were making me feel good that I could leave or that I could just say, hey guys, something came up or you know what this finishes another day and just tell my publisher or whatever that did not feel good. Also overbooking and chasing. Now I think you need to have when you're younger this ambition and you need to say yes to a lot and I say yes to everything but in the beginning it was too much to where I would just chase and chase and chase even when I knew my gut. I'm exhausting myself. I'm doing three sections today. I'm working on a Sunday. Now I freely freely say no. I still have a little bit of that foma that we all have, but what if but what if and my husband, I've only been married four months. So that was one of the biggest surprises. Congratulations. Thank you. We've been together four and a half years and never thought that was going to happen. But he's amazing. And he always was just like, you need an off day. And sometimes in my day off, that's when I'll come up with all kinds of things. So I need to recharge more. And I think I used to be really afraid to say no. Last two questions we ask everybody who sits where you are. And the first one is, this is a huge body of work for you. What are you most proud of? I'm really proud of the songs that you brought up, skyscraper, want to want me day drunk. There's a song called Cinderella that a lot of young girls, like when I'm working with the 25 year old, like, oh my God, I grew up in that song and I know every step to the dance, I wrote an acapella, and then I had a friend of mine helped me records to it. And it became like this with the cheetah girls and it became kind of an anthem, but it's the only song I ever wrote like that just all the whole thing a cappella and Kevin savigar ended up co writing it with me. So I want to give him some kudos here, but I don't know I'm really proud of that one because it is one that so many girls have posted about it and said, this, you know, shaped my life. Blessed, the current one with Kelly Clarkson is very, very proud of that song. There's been a few along the way. You've had a lot of lessons, haven't you? A lot of blessings, and I hope to have a lot more. What has been the key? Do you think, to your success in music? I've had a really good eye for young talent. I've discovered quite a few people where maybe they hadn't had a hit, maybe they hadn't had a cut, but I heard somebody's voice, or I got together with a producer. I'm not great with knowing where the beat should be, but just something about them and I gave them a shot. I had hits with these people. So I think it's always having an open mind and not being stuck on my ways at all. I'm open to really anything. And the reason I'm still doing this and I have the great privilege of continuing to do this because I want to, not because I need to. So I'm very grateful for that. And I feel more inspired in some ways than I ever have. Lindy Robinson, I want to say thank you so much for being our guest this week on country music success stories than my pleasure. Thank you for having me. This is JC Don valerius, your music city mentor. Today I want to talk with you about the art of co writing because that's exactly what it is in art. If you're someone dreaming about getting to write with a hit songwriter, you're probably wondering what you need to do to make that happen and how you can rise to the occasion should you get the opportunity. I asked Lindy Robbins, which she looks for when choosing people to write with. And this is what she had to say. For me, I need somebody who's a great musician. In the pop world, what they call the top planner, melody and lyric. And then I want somebody else who is a great singer because I'd prefer to have somebody else do a demo. So it's having the right combination of maybe the producer and somebody who's really great with lyrics. Somebody who's really great with melody. Maybe everybody's great with everything. But I think it's a good combination. And I think it's just everybody just being able to listen again, not be too in love with their own ideas, to listen to other people's ideas. Sometimes people like people to come in with an idea, I found that in Nashville. They like to start with the title. So I've always got my list of titles, if that's the way somebody wants to start. I prefer to start with chords and music, but if somebody else comes in, like, this happened to me a couple of times recently as I've been writing more, that things have opened up where these young people that I broke, and they had a whole idea. And I was like, I love that. Let's go with that. But I want to make it better. And I think this could be better. Instead of saying, no, no, let's start from scratch. But if the idea wasn't good, I might have said, put that aside for a minute and discharge something fresh. So it was just being open to whatever and whoever has a great idea. Maybe it's me that day, maybe it's somebody else. It doesn't really matter. You just want to collectively do something magical. Lindy is absolutely correct. Being prepared is always the very best option, even if all you have is a lyric or a hook or a melody. I want to tie this up with a piece of advice a fellow songwriter gave to me when I was just starting out in my career. She also happens to be a season one guest on this podcast, and that is Kelly Lang. Kelly told me this whenever you're going into a co write with another writer, consider it going into business with them. If your song happens to make it onto an album, you'll have contracts and royalties and publishing rights to discuss. And if it gets onto a television show, you could have to negotiate a license. And if you write that magical song that becomes a worldwide hit, the business side of that can be enormous. So when you are choosing your co writers, always choose wisely and pick the ones that you are afraid to go on what could be a magical lifelong journey. More wisdom you can use from JC Don valerius, your music city mentor.

"Host. Our trip to Los Angeles was so much fun. We just didn't want it to end. One day, we had lunch in Beverly Hills and we walked up and down rodeo drive like we were Julia Roberts in pretty woman. And we have the video to prove it. When we were done, posing, we hopped back into the car for a drive to the home of multi platinum songwriter Lindy Robbins. She's literally songwriting royalty, especially in the pop world, where she's written hits for the Backstreet Boys, Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, and the list goes on, and you will hear the stories behind mega hit songs coming up in this interview. But Lindy is also no stranger to Nashville or to writing big country hit songs like day drunk, Morgan Evans top 20 smash that when platinum in his native Australia. JC could not wait to ask Lindy some revealing questions for her music city mentor segment, so don't miss her answers at the end of this interview, songwriters, take notes, seriously. Lindy met us at the door with a smile and she led us to her backyard garden where this interview took place. She was more than happy to share so much about her career, including one of the keys to her success in the music business. Being a good person and being good at what you do so that even if you haven't had a hit in a minute people still want to get with you, it's about to hang, it's about being cool. It's about treating everybody with equal respect. Lindy loves the creative process and her energy is like a billion watt nuclear reactor. By the time this interview is over, you're going to feel like you know her too. She's that open, and that friendly, with lots of cool stories to tell. Oh, and by the way, forgive the sounds of airplanes overhead. I think her house is right on the flight path to LAX. The sheer volume of hit songs that you have written, honestly, is stunning. I've played quite a few of them on the radio so you can say thank you. Thank you. You started singing when you were only three years old. Your dad a musician. Tell us a little bit about what life was like when you were a little girl. This is amazing. Oh, wow. Well, my dad piano and music was everything to him. The great American songbooks I grew up with musicals and Gershwin and rod didn't hard and roger's damage and then later he would play Elton John and Joni Mitchell and Billy Joel, but mostly with Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand. That's what I grew up with and I just started singing when I was a little girl. Three years old three years old. Every time I was anywhere near him, there was always singing and performing and usually those standards, which I think of served me well the knowledge of that kind of music that I know somebody other people that pop music or not as aware of those songs, but I know them all because I was raised on them. And you were performing on stages New York City and in Los Angeles, how exciting. I was. I was. I mean, it wasn't ultimately my path and I'm so beyond grateful every day for the path that I tripped onto, but I did perform quite a bit. I got to perform at Carnegie Hall with the vocal group and so many amazing things as a performer, but ultimately songwriting was the path. Carnegie Hall, as a singer, bucket list. Bucket list. Do you remember that moment? Oh yeah. I sure do. You must have sounded like a million bucks. Oh, I guess I could sing back then. I was in the 90s. I could sing. You just said that you tripped on the songwriting. Tell me that story. Because I went to New York as part of a vocal group and was trying to audition for Broadway shows and it was finally thank you next. Thank you next. We had success in the cabarets and clubs. People would line up to see us in 1 a.m.. I mean, it was crazy. New York in the early 90s. I started writing songs for the vocal group and I started to realize that when we had a show, I was so much more excited that we were performing the original material than I was about actually being a performer. And then I had a few songs and somebody did a favor to somebody else, one of the composers said, we'll see her, but we're not signing any writers. And I mean, I didn't even know what a publishing deal was, and they came and I had three or four songs and they said, we want to sign you. Who's your lawyer? And I said, what? And how old were you when this happened? Well, we don't talk aids. Okay, all right, so you were a young woman just getting started. And you get a publishing deal which feels larger than life. Yeah, I know it was incredible. And I just started to realize this is what I want to do. And then 1998, that's when I moved back to LA because even though I was in the cabaret world in musical theater at that point, I always still was a pop person. My influences were Cheryl crow, and I was just going to ask you that. Who were your influences? And Joni Mitchell to Sheryl Crow to Alison Krauss who's probably my favorite singer to the judge. Our obsessed with the Jerry first episode was with Naomi Judd. At her 500 acre compound in leapers work Tennessee. I think I would faint the judge. So generous. Unbelievably yearwood and, oh, so many of the singers. Beautiful voices. Duncan sheet to just real songs, I suppose, but in a more pop element, that always really was what I did, even though I'd grown up in the theater and I had written these songs. That's who I was and what I was about. And so in 1998, I just realized this is what I want to do. I want to write pop songs. When we first walked into your home, I saw a beautiful baby grand piano. Do you play the piano as well? Actually don't. Okay. So I write melody and lyrics. I actually, now that I'm working on a couple of musicals, I've come to realize that it was probably the biggest mistake of my life. I've always thought that it would be more of a hindrance because I work with such great songwriters, musicians, and producers, I always hear the music in my head. Does that happen first? Do you hear the music or do you write them at all? When I'm writing things very rarely on my own for a musical, but I can't figure out very, very simple chords, but I never in my life had the patience to learn or do anything that didn't just come naturally to me. I never took a class or studying anything. I just realized I can write songs. I can write lyrics. I can see what a talent. I mean it's maybe laziness too, but I never could dance and I never could learn and I just never had the patience for piano and I wish that I would have, there's a discipline to songwriting. Can you tell us a little bit about how you write? Well, again, lazy and not disciplined because I've never like this morning. I had a zoom, which is one of the good things that have come out of the pandemic. And I had this crazy zoom, three other people. When was in Amsterdam, one was in Norway and one was in Berlin. Three young men, and we wrote two songs in two hours, this rarely happens. I never have ideas. I just somebody starts playing something and it just flies into them. I have too many ideas. I annoy people. What about this? What about that? And they're like, please give me a chance to think, just squeeze stop talking for one, I can feel it. I've learned to literally remove myself from the room, because I'm just spurting ideas. Collaboration, though, is a magical thing too. Have you worked with certain co writes where you just snapped? I've worked with so many choreographers and co writes where it just wasn't a good fit. Tell me about the first time you ever heard a song that you wrote coming out of the radio. Actually, do you remember it was incomplete? That was for the Backstreet Boys. That was my

"I heard our friend Geraldo say on the 5 and he's not the first but this is getting repeated out there Well you know Ronald Reagan said he was going to appoint a woman and by God that's what he did As justification for this but what they don't tell you is conservatives objected Conservatives objected conservatives did not think That that approach was appropriate And in fact they looked far and wide and they came up with a state appeals court judge by the name of Sandra Day O'Connor on the recommendation of Barry Goldwater And while she started off as a solid constitutional conservative in the end I don't want to speak rudely because I understand she's confronting very serious health issues Well in the end she wasn't as she was in the beginning Let me put it that way But there is Lindsey Graham who has helped the Democrats put one radical judge after another on the courts I'm sorry Lindy Lindsay This isn't a bow what makes you feel good or somebody coming out of South Carolina or it's about time something goes on I've spent my entire life fighting for the constitution fighting for people to go on the court or a constitutionalist There was part of my responsibility for part of my time in the Reagan administration And before and since those of you have listened to the show obviously no This is crucially important These are lifetime appointments

"Still she visits where we have the presence of lost children, is we're going to the room with us today, ask doctor bland right there, same corner. But someone's reality where they create life of a child that is part. Yeah. I have a connection with children. I think part of it is also one because I am a mother and I have a son and also because the African culture is very family centric. And so our children play a really important role in the society. And I find that when I write stories with children, I just really connect with them. But what I wanted to do was to write migrant stories, especially with those two stories. Fantasizing of existence has parallel stories and their birth migrants and I wanted to bring that out. And I wrote still she visits when my sister Laura died of aids. And so it's almost a story of grief, but it's also quite pathetic. And so the children coming into the stories that way. And also then children coming to another story. A visit in whitechapel, where the children are creating. Their own. Oh, yes. That's right. And it's a very different kind of story because it's not our first person narrative and it's not a new narrative a second person narrative. I wanted to create a kind of story where you have a collective and it's a collective protagonist that has a thing you of thinking. So all along they took us and we did this and that synchrony, but it's almost empowering the children because I wanted this to be their story. And this is one of my favorite stories because of the immersion that I felt writing the story and connecting with the children. Well, what is clear in these stories is the power of the characters to create their own reality, the power of an author like yourself to transport us into other realities, not just in the imagination, but through the language, but also lastly, you take a different time zone. Some of these stories founded in your experience in Africa, but then we go into the future and the last story forgetting to learn, we almost have what we do have. Holograms and the reality of a relationship, digital presence. It absolutely could be where the future is going and just thinking that in the olden days you would lose somebody probably by playing something or singing to them from outside their window, you're not throwing a rock at the window to draw their attention. And it was quite face to face. But now all you've got is a fan and you swipe after you slide right and sometimes people have relationships and that never met in person. And so technology is taking us places. Yeah. Well, given that I have never actually met you in person. We're conducting this interview via Zoom, it has been a wonderful opportunity to get to see you. To talk about dang black thing and the author is eugen bacon and it's a transit lounge release. So you thank you very much for talking with me today. Thank you so much.

"Different culture. That's right because I am African Australian. I was born in Tanzania and I lived in Kenya and then also lived in the UK before coming to Australia. And so I am a son of many cultures. I could think of myself as many. And so I think a fragment of me brings out the intrinsic African self and some of those adages are almost borrowed from how my mother would speak or how my aunty would speak when she's calling me. And then there's also the Aussie in me. And then I also have this fascination with a really love language. I feel writing as an interplay with language and just interacting with the characters that way. It's challenging because it seems to be unconventional. Yeah. I never really think about it. It's not even a conscious decision because my writing is very immersive and once I start writing, I think it just becomes a natural transition into that story. And whatever happens with the language and whatever happens with the play just shaped itself. You shake us out of our complacency. Anyway, you also will utilize the cultural voice there's one story I see the developed close last Easter. It ain't no beast which horns, but denied we're sure hot enough. You can hear the sound of people in that region. But then as a contrast, you narrative style is almost poetic at times. I carry the strength of the sun. The subtlety of the wind, the solidity of water the comfort of earth. I am a story, a gargoyle sleeping in a corner. I encompass all limits off a no borders. I am here between her hands. She created me. I created. I think it dries back to my affection for poetic language and when I think back to some of the mentors who really inspired me in their writing, I think of Tony Morrison to her writing is very poetic and it's almost lyrical and especially when you read her novels like jazz where you almost feel the music as you read the text. And I love Michael and doctor. I remember reading the visit there or I feel like I can feel the story even now as I talk about it and the excitement is there. And just recently, I started reading Susan medallia. And she has really fired me in her writing because she has that similar poetical, which means that the poetic and the interplay of words is important to me. But also as part of my culture, there's the musicality, African, our cultures are so done and we celebrate everything. And so when I write, I think sometimes there's a same song in the language and it just happens. Your storylines then also toy with reality. There's one called unlimited data must have a smartphone, the job Ed said. And we have a blending of the future, which is technology. But it's juxtaposed with a third world. And it's almost as if the technology is exacerbating that poverty. Yeah. So I was invited to write and limited data for a cyber funk anthology where cyberpunk is where you integrate the computing aspects that with black protagonists. And I really wanted to use black protagonist and that's why I created old Kampala. And so it's based in Uganda, but almost like in a futuristic Uganda, but it's called old Kampala. And the focus is also on the characters not to come down. The poor woman in the village and who is really trying to survive from day to day and he's looking at all options, but in the end technology almost comes to their detriment because it's the programmer who benefits from it all. And there's so much loss to everybody else. But I wanted to integrate those. Yes, I wanted to have the technology and also to have the African aspect into it. It goes against the expectation of what we think technology is providing for us and also then that notion of a sustained poverty that we simply can't break out of. That's right. It's almost a story of warning. I wanted to draw that out like the tragedy that happens in the story. It almost a caution that technology is wonderful, but we are empowered in how we use it and who suffers when we use it. Well, you take technology to another level in dang black thing. Your computer here has a name emu. And it is virtually a living thing. I took hold of Ember who set grinning on his desk. She shuddered mildly. It's a living entity. I loved writing this story. So it was a collaboration with an American author who we've never met. We met online at a time when Amazon was doing Amazon shorts. And they invited us both to write short stories. And we both liked each other's stories and so I proposed to Don, would you like to collaborate with me on a story? And so that's how don't think came up. And what you really contributed to the story was the southern drawl, the American accident. And I brought in the black Ember. It's almost like an African computer and African laptop that is very conniving and very sexy little thing, you know? But it's a living thing. It takes that notion of somebody almost having an affair with somebody on the other end of the computer to the point where they're having an affair with the actual laptop. That's right. I really wanted to pass on this laptop so that it became like a living entity. And if we think of where we are in technology to think of artificial intelligence and so it's that kind of thing where suddenly the device becomes a real entity and it has so much control it consumes this month's life. And it takes over the wife is completely jealous about her. Well, it also begs the question of what is going to happen to and with technology given the proposals about taking Facebook to a new reality. And the lives that we're going to be leading in the future. That is right. It is both frightening, but also very exciting, but I wonder what the future is going to look like. So I'm a mother and I have a teenager. And I was wondering what his life is going to look like years, you know, ahead because things change so rapidly, another change of reality, there are two stories here phantasms of existence and.

"Side. It's quite funny. And then we have Kerry Greenwood will. I think most readers have detective novels, no Cary Greenwood's name. And she's given the title of hers la Garza ledra, which translates as the thieving magpie. But it's not. No, no, it's a red herring that title. Yeah, that's one of the other stories where it's actually Friday narrating that story, not the cat, but it is the cat and is Friday's cat and dog who alert frannie to the fact that there is there even is a crime and help her solve it. So Brian Fischer's story, yes. With her pets helping with this with her pets. Lindy Cameron, it's time we started talking about yours. Yours is the last short story in the book. And it's really, really complete. We haven't had luciad and in any of your other writings, have we? No, we haven't, but by troubled reagent short story characters is that I like them so much, I want to turn them into a book or several books or several short stories. So she may well appear again. I hope so. What material little bit about Lucia? Yes, so my story is called haunting zinc. This is a very brief rating. I am indeed Melbourne's primo ghostbuster in the sense that I smash any idea that specters or ghouls are even a thing. And as an expert improving the peculiar and spooky is merely order and explainable. I find my clients are often the strangest things about the not hauntings. They range from those freaked out by strange house noises to people haunted by guilt or bad memories, or those desperate for an impossible connection to things lost. The latter are always disappointed. I was looking forward to finding out if my famously eccentric client Eleanor Blake was merely odd, or completely whack a do. So Lucy Adam, she's got a feed on the ground. She goes to this her client's house. But the house itself is incredibly described. So it just gives us a little voice image of that house. The whole concept of the story and my character and the characters she meets was inspired by 5 go to smuggler's top. Therefore, the house in my mind had to reflect the kind of house that if someone reading famous 5 books that I would just be so joyous in discovering was it the end of my Peninsula or the end of my street. So this particular house is set on the morning Peninsula overlooking best straight is wild. The house itself looks like it's built from the ground up. And as it turns out, it's built from under the ground up because it has underground tunnels and things, of course, because it was once a smuggler's house. But it's just magnificent. It's bits here and bits there and different roof lines and several stories and it's even got a widow's walk on top. So it's the perfect house for a smuggler story at the perfect house for a murder mystery fabulous exotic places that you expect stuff to happen. And of course the owner the eccentric Eleanor Blake explains to Lucy Aden that she's asset rich but cash poor. So what she decided to do her house and grounds are every year, given over to a medieval reenactment festival, which pays regular money every year. But she's decided to raise extra funds to turn part of the house into a writer's retreat. And one of the silly ideas that she has that's going to be held during the medieval fear is to host seances. It's Lucy's job normally to bust a seance and prove that ghosts don't exist that seances are bogus. And Eleanor knows that that's what she does, but she wants Lucy's help in making her seance more believable. And assuring her that it's only being done for entertainment that no one is being robbed or conned or anything is just for entertainment. So while Lucy thinks it's a very weird job to be given. She goes along nonetheless because science is a bogus. She's told to scare the bejesus out of them. Yes. Your writing has the then and now. The now which seems like a far fetched dream until it is put into the context of what happened before in the then. There's two voices she continues to hear in the now in the dream. What are they? She thinks there's a television on and the voices sound like Sean Connery and Meg does the banski having an argument or a discussion about something. So she's in her semi wagon state that they're both on a talk show that they could be the only reason why these two people are having a conversation at all till she wakes up properly and discovers who is actually in the room with her. And then discovers that hauntings really might be a thing. I never heard of her pan dimensional being before. No. Well, I suppose, but I wanted an animal that in this sense wasn't a ghost so that the story could begin with the fact that she's meeting a strange being, but still that he sang, I'm not a ghost, you know? So, you know, but we need your help here to need your help. But Finn Balor is a Maine coon cat who through an accident many, many, many years before, somewhere in a whole other ocean or as a ship's cat. He ended up being sucked through a void, a dimension, and now lives in this smuggler's house on the morning to Peninsula. And sometimes he's there and sometimes he's not in the sense that he can be completely visible as in a ghost. But yeah, his short short short version of what he calls himself is a pandemic. I made it up. It may well be someone else may have a similar concept with a different name, but yeah, Finn Balor is a pending bee. Where did your mind go? When you decided to make the other little creature, I don't know what prompted it in the first place, except that I'm really glad I created her because I've always had a dread of Huntsman spiders. Other spiders I could take a leaf, but Huntsman spiders as anyone who has a fear of them will know. There is no rational logical reason to be afraid of them, but I always have been. And seeing I was writing about animals and a spooky old house. I figured that this spooky old house would have Huntsman's in it. And I just came up with a Huntsman who calls herself Hecate who. And the name is Hecate after the ancient Greek goddess. And who, as in Doctor Who, because Hecate who thinks that she's a time lord. And all of that, there's the beautiful Nina Blake, the granddaughter. And she comes to Lucy Aden with another problem. There's lost pets who are just family pets accidentally, but it turns out that they are on the sleuthing trail of the other animals that have gone missing and they're more exotic. Most muddling involved perhaps. Yes. I hope to see Lucian in another book because it was a lot of fun. Not all crime novels have to have serial killers or gore. Who sleuth did is a lighthearted and fun read with animals helping to solve crimes. These short stories are by 19 different writers from many countries and edited by Lindy Cameron. And indeed, thank you so much for a fun read. Oh, thank you very much. Too. I love talking about this book. I think it's one of the most joyous things I've put together as a publisher as well. David has also been reading books, and here he is. Building into eugen bacon's collection of short stories down to black thing is almost like having your reality challenged. The language and storylines have us questioning what is real. So Eugene welcomed a three C thank you so much, David and delighted that you hosted me here today.

"This is a three CR podcast. And this is published or not. Another week has gone by with interesting weather, but whether it's rain or shine, there's always time to read a book. This week my editor author and publicist is Lindy Cameron. Sleuth it has a variety of authors from different stages of writing careers and countries. There is a subject that links all these short stories and Lindy Cameron is the editor. Welcome to published or not Lindy. Thanks for having me, Jan. Well, Lindy, you're the publisher of clandestine books and also a writer. So how did you choose the other writers in the anthology and what was the subject to ask them to write about? I chose the other writers specifically because I knew they were all mystery writers and animal lovers. So the subject of the anthology is animals who help other animals solve crimes and mysteries over sometimes they help their humans also solve a crime. Most of the animals in the stories are anthropomorphic in that they talk they are the narrators. Talking animals, does that make it more kids book? Not at all. I specifically asked for stories for adults, but that could be enjoyed by children. So it is a grown-ups mystery anthology, all of the stories in there are written for big people. But there's only one that would be, you know, maybe you might not read to your 12 year old, but there's certainly teenagers could rate it as well. Yeah, but it's definitely not a children's book. No, it certainly is not. But you know, when you think about animals helping to solve crime. We've seen it. We've read it. We've seen it on television, haven't we? We certainly have, and that was part of the inspiration. Every other female crime writer I know in Australia and probably England. And quite a few of the guys as well, were born and bred rating in a blossom on the famous 5 and the secret 7. You know, my hero from a very young age. My sleuthing here, I was Timmy the dog from the famous 5. So I've grown up with animals. He didn't talk, but and then, of course, you know, television had written ten and lassie and more recently inspector X and not that any of those spoke to the readers or to the audience, but they may as well, because once you've got an animal as a character, you know, I'm sure you think that if you have your cat yourself gene or a dog. I'm sure you think that they actually understand you and they talk to you. So you know, it's the same, you know. We all think they understand us. And in these stories they absolutely do. And sometimes it's really funny because the animals find it difficult to understand each other. You know, the cats that talk about the dogs speaking doofus and. All the different bird talk that's around. Yes. Explain about different languages being spoken. Yeah, well, one of the stories told roxbury has written a story in which a magpie discovers that a woman nearby who's who turns out to be a policewoman at a crime scene. It seems that the magpie is speaking, magpie language, but it seems suddenly that this female police officer can actually understand the magpie. She in the magpie set up an agreement that the magpie will help her solve the human murder if she helps to make pie solve a serial killings of cockatoos in the area. Well, there's another story from Ireland that has it the other way around. And this is set in limerick, of course, where there's true empathy between a person and its symbiotic animal or companion. And it's a feral Fox and the human gets to taste everything that the feral foxes. Yes. Yeah, that's the lovely Jack final. He's a writer who's contributed to two anthology soft done so far. And we discovered him through sort of fan fiction and the international world. But yeah, his character is a woman again. But yeah, Fox. Everything her fox eats, which could be something disgusting. She ends up tasting, which is not pleasant sometimes and is placed in other times. Some of the writers jump into sort of more that sci-fi area. We've got a rod from USA who has cats that hunt cryptids. Antisocial zombies and ghosts. And that's also got a vampire and mermaids in it. So that's got quite a collection. Yeah, Elizabeth has discovered it's actually been writing about that character spam the cat for a while. And one of spam's best Friends was another cat who got bitten by a vampire and is now a cat prior and hangs upside. It's got wings and everything and hangs upside down in the kitchen cupboard when she's not native for solving crimes. But so there's a bit of a bit of folklore in a bit of mythology involved in her story. It's just fabulous. If you've been to England and the Tower of London, you know that there's ravens there to protect it. But The Crown jewels get stolen and falco and his stool pigeons could be about to play. So Scotland Yard pulls in its best. So who does it call in? Reggie styling of Scotland Yard. I think the fabulous notion that it's a starling that's solving the crime of The Crown jewels is also, you know, it's not a Raven. It's not a regal eagle or anything like that. It's Reggie styling. Registering. Well, from England, we'll take it back to Australia and make Kenley. She's well known as a historical writer here. So she's got 1900 Sydney and the quarantine station with the Bubonic plague. There's a nurse that works there. But what animal helps the nurse to solve a burglary? I think it's the only non anthropomorphic story in the collection from memory. And it's a penguin in this instance. So there's a colony of fairy penguins in Sydney harbor. They're always happy. And yes, this is an accidental clue given by a fairy penguin that the main character has been sort of watching on the beach when she goes for walks, but the fabulous thing about that story, of course, is that in a situation where there's another quarantine. Cats do appear a little bit more than most other animals in this book. The bookshop cat that the bookshop owner has her own connection with humans are in a detective club, but when they start dying in unusual accidents, it's the cats that solve the murders. Oh, that's hilarious. Isn't it? The cat's in a rating, that story too. And the seemingly in the background of the actual crime that's being looked at. But these humans really don't know what they're doing. You know, it's obvious what's happening. So and so did this and so and so did that. And the cats are able to communicate with each other over Zoom Zoom to Skype sessions because their owners are using the machines. And so they're in the background going, you know, sort of giving cat language to the other cat on the other.

"Why would we deliberately inaccurate in the way. That is when you when you look through this book. What i what. I really found interesting and beautiful about it is that it is stories from individuals who are telling you. They're individual experience about how and why they had an abortion Some painful you know some some stories where the person didn't want to have an abortion but had to you know because of circumstances you have all of the images in the book that's a. That's a very deliberate thing to do. Do you think that that that adds to the stories putting putting a face behind it. Yeah absolutely i mean. I think it's really easy again when you have tiny fringe group controlling the narrative. They're the only one saying abortion out loud and if we're never saying abortion out loud and we're never telling our stories because we're shamed into silence and when we talk about abortion we say we're so sorry we're so sorry about this constitutional right that we have and we know it's wrong and bad but can we please keep having it. Maybe like how is that. A compelling political argument but when you tell the truth and you say. I'm a human being. You know me and you love me and i've had an abortion and it's normal and it's happening all the time i mean that's just so it's so powerful and it really breaks down that argument and it really shows you that anti-choice people are not trying to stop abortion. They're trying to legislate who can and cannot have abortions because conservative politicians their wives and mistresses and daughters are always going to be able to get an abortion somewhere and really all anti-choice rhetoric does and attempts to criminalize abortion or to overturn roe. All that's going to do is keep people trapped in poverty and drowning in poverty for generations. That's the goal and if it wasn't the goal they would spend their time and money on comprehensive sex education free birth control free contraception all the things that actually pro choice. People spend their time on that actually do affect their abortion rate. So you know..

"This is a book that was based around a movement. I remember this trending online. I remember the debate that the started. Shout your abortion it immediately just a lot of people but what is this movement toward about so it started in two thousand fifteen when i don't know if you remember but the planned parenthood cells baby parts videos. We're going around right steak. Hit and my friends and i were perturbed and trying to figure out. Is there something that we can do. Is there some way that we can counteract this like crazy nonsense and my friend. Amelia went on facebook spontaneously and beautiful post. That said i had an abortion at planned. Parenthood and it was an overwhelmingly positive experience. I felt nothing but relief. And i'm a good person and my abortion made me happy. And so i took that screen-grabbed it on twitter. And i added shot your abortion and then the internet exploded and some people said they were going to kill us but a lot of people joined and told started telling their stories with the hashtag and it was really kind of gorgeous. It was like this huge outpouring of just just truth you know. Some people had experiences that were traumatic. And some people had experiences like amelia's that were that were they just felt gratitude and a lot of people people told us stories about having abortions before roe v wade and it was you know we got letters from religious people and conservative people because the reality is that people are having abortions trevor weather. You know really across party lines across religious lines across geographic lines. It's the reality and the conversation has really been dominated by what's essentially a fringe opinion. You know anti choice. Rhetoric is not actually the norm. So seventy one percent of americans support roe v wade. And that's not a controversial thing and yet we're all sort of action to this corner to talk about abortion as like well. Yeah i mean. I guess it is kind of murder like even people who are who are pro choice get trapped in that paradigm which is propaganda. But how do you. How do you move people away from the negative ideas surrounding abortion because the paradox of abortion is that it isn't something that is taken lightly. It's not something. That is benign flimsy but at the same time it is not what many anti-abortion activists have have started to speak about it. As you you you speak about the fact that it is not a partisan issue and shouldn't be one but it has become one over time and we know that you know the church like the catholic church for instance. America did a really good job of reshaping that idea in the minds of politicians. So how to shout you abortion. Try to take us in a different direction. It's just people telling the truth about their experiences and experiences that we've been taught to feel shame about and to apologize for which is really engineered by the evangelical right deliberately. You know and so all this is it doesn't. It's it's morally neutral. You know it's just people telling the truth. Here's what happened to me. Here's miami this choice. Here's why i had to terminate. This desperately wanted pregnancy. Or it's people talking about having had multiple abortions for every different kind of reason. And so i think you know when you let a such a common experience one in four people who can get pregnant. We'll have an abortion. that's huge. That means that everyone knows and loves someone who has had an abortion. That's just reality. It's interesting because i noticed in your speech and also in the book you stray away from using the term women. A women's issue is that is that something intentional. Yeah i mean. I think it's just more important now than ever when the administration is openly hostile to transpeople. I mean i think those of us who are trying to be on the right side of history and who genuinely care about other human beings tried to be inclusive in our language and the fact is that it's not only women who can become pregnant trans man and non binary people can be pregnant. And that's just reality so.

They found fourteen thousand dollars of ransom money in his house. Now he got either fifty or seventy. I don't they ransom total went back and forth. He either got fifty or seventy now so within a span of two and a half years. Maybe he's spent the other thirty six or fifty six thousand but that would be a pretty hard thing to do without attracting a shit. Ton of notice righty was especially at that time. That money was worth so much more millions. I mean the thirties the depression right. So where's that other money. Is it because he had partners you know so like. There's a lot of unanswered questions. But at the time it was like the country needs the case to be solved. Then that's that's kind of the impression that you get about it and it'll be interesting to see what you found on the culture side but that was the impression i got was that here's a guy.

"I love a good conspiracy theory. And i especially love it when a complete like abomination of a person is guilty of a crime because it kind of supports my but having said that i found a detail that would seem to go against the theory that lindbergh was involved and that is that the ladder so the latter was a three piece extension ladder and we have pictures of it on on the website and on instagram but it was constructed to all work together to extend to a pretty high height right and so what they found when they found the the ladder was that one piece of broken so theorized that on the way down the ladder broke and they dropped the baby. And that's how the baby died. But what the interesting tidbit found. Was that only two pieces of the three piece ladder had been used to reach the second story window so my question is if lindbergh had been involved he would have told them exactly how high how high the second story window was. You would think right to like if he was orchestrating all of this and he was known to be a very efficient and organiz and well planned kind of person the he would have told them the second story window. Is you know not exactly. Twenty one twenty one feet and two inches. But it's about twenty feet or it's about twenty five feet and so you would think that. The kidnappers brought a ladder. That went exactly to that height as you're kidnapping toddler. I don't think you would want to be carrying around an extra ladder. Essentially if you didn't need it. But they came with three pieces and they only use too so a little something there that seems to point away from lindbergh on us. They didn't use the ladder at all and it was a prop piece in. They just were given the baby or the baby was killed or however like the latter could be to prove that someone stole him through the window when really the latter was just what what it was like a proof of action as opposed to necessarily the latter was used to steal the baby out of the window. Yeah that's a good point..

It was like a dead zone fishing. I mean there's there's really not much closer unless you're going to drive like two hours to glendow three and a half hours to seminal five hours to voice in like you just forget about it. There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob. You've done amazing job about that. And i just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us you know. What's what's in key strategies of getting kids and just other anglers out on the water. What are some good strategies and tips number one number one. Make sure you take him when you can get a bit people. I i mean i can't old is powered pork edges especially with the younger ones. That have a short attention. Spans inter is critical. That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it. They're they're going out with somebody that knows something about all of a sudden next to the boat. This monster opens his mouth bites on. It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really. Is the key to keep them motivated. Keep them fishing kit. In a short period of time you know and again with the adult young person after after you know you get them out for two trips.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children.

If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family.

Those times that we're in those events burn memories that they talk about still in. Those chips are really important with father and a son. I know with my dad. We had an annual trip that we would take to flaming gorge and that always meant the world to me because we'd spend five or six days out on the gorge just fishing and not worrying about all the other stuff you know. The work stresses of life. And you know i had told you in an email about a trip to voice in just those kind of trips.

Water clarity stabilized. Image is endless. In comparison to what we had sixty years ago running through the changes that i've seen are gathering in the business of what the liberal. But you could do so much preliminary work you know. Get getting on your computer Checking out google earth. Going to local site Hunting down to let local reports.

But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart.

My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich.

Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy.

Student loans in the United States
"Roughly 44 million student loan borrowers haven't had to pay anything on their student loans since March. This grace period offered as part of the coronavirus relief package will end on January 31st. That deadline was originally December 31st. But last Friday, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced that borrowers would get an extra month of reprieve. But for many That's still not enough. I'm unemployed, and so I am concerned about not being able to pay my loans. I'm 61 years old been paying student loans since my twenties. If I were having to pay my student loan right now, during the pandemic, it would be to 36 a month. I have a lot of loans that air coming up for repayment, and I'm really worried that don't have a job yet. Asselin, who has recently completed grass school and who lost my job in July. Here. I've been grateful for the paws on student loan repayments. I just don't understand how we're supposed to pay off our loans. When the situation hasn't really changed. I don't have full time work and the payments are pretty steep. My parents willing, is $1400. And what are we supposed to do? This month's installment of dollars and cents. Our monthly personal finance series. We're talking about student loan debt, joining us his Alvin Hall. He's a financial educator and author of several personal finance books. Alvin, It's great to have you back. Also with us is Cara Perez. She's a financial educator and the founder of Bravely, Ah Financial education Company, Carol. Welcome back. Thanks for having me and we're also here with Susan Dinar ski. She's a professor of public policy, education and economics at the University of Michigan. Susan Welcome. Thanks for having me. So Susan first put the problem of student loan debt into context for us. How big of a problem is this in our country? We have a lot of people in debt, and we have some people who are having trouble with that debt. Since we've got so many millions of people who owe student loans, even a small proportion of them having difficulty adds up to a lot of people in trouble. How long has this been a problem? And is it getting better or worse? It was sort of important shift that took place during the great recession in about 10 years ago, where Ah lot of people who have the past who had not borrowed began borrowing folks who are going to community college is, for example. On BOC's who would tend to drop out after just a year or so. And default rates just went through the roof on. We haven't even completely recovered from from that period. So I would say, you know, we had student debt around for a long time. It's been affecting more people and causing more defaults, especially since three session, Keira. We heard from several people at the top who are out of work and who student loan payments are starting back up. February 1st. How can someone without income pay down student loan debt? What are their options? That's a great question and one certainly without easy answers. I think the first thing that anyone who does not have any income and is looking to make actual payments needs to do is sit down and assess their savings and understanding my trying to pay this out of what I currently have tucked away in savings or investments, or am I looking To do something like, ask outside of my finances to make these payments, But I think that more importantly, the question shouldn't be If I'm unemployed. Should I be trying to make these payments? The question is, if I'm employed, where can I find employment? Because once you have money coming in, it's going to make everything in your life, including paying your student loans much easier. We got this message from Kara on Facebook on Lee federal student loan borrowers haven't had to pay during the pandemic. I lost my job and still had to pay my student loans. I told my loan provider that I lost my job. Got the payments postponed until May, But I still have to pay $150 a month for the interest. What about private loan borrowers? Any thoughts? Yeah, I think the first thing that people should do is get in touch with their lone bar are their lenders. Justus carded here to figure out if there is a lower amount that they can pay or if there is some sort of grace period that they qualify for. Really, They're stuck between a rock and a hard place, right. If there's no money coming in money cannot go out. And so it really falls on these companies to understand we're in a global pandemic that the U. S. Has not handled particularly well. Can they work with their Lindy's so album for someone who is struggling? Who is working but is also struggling to pay for food and housing. Is there any advice you can give on how to start chipping away at their debt? Yes, I must tell you Agenda this, uh, the subject sits deep in my stomach because when I graduated from school in the seventies it was doing Great recession and I was in very much the situation. I had no savings. I had a job. The job was unstable Income was low. What I did during that period of time I took Another job. I took a job working in a department store selling men's furnishings, the nice words for men's underwear, belt and socks. And I would allocate as much money as I could. From that job. A job I really didn't like. But my purpose had to be to pay something on these loans because back then you did not have that many options. The other decision that I made during that period of time, which I was told everybody about was that I looked at the program of loan forgiveness and discovered that if I Heart in a particular school and a low income neighborhood or something like that, Then some of my loan would be forgiven. So actually did that. I took a job in what was then on area where the school was in the program, and that definitely helped repay part of my loan. So I think you have to be creative because Didn't have savings. My parents couldn't help me. I did not have a safety net. I'm thinking about the latest job numbers that came out and they were much lower than expected. And so for people who are maybe struggling to find that first job right now, or You know to secure income. The idea of finding a second job might feel particularly daunting album. It was daunting then, but If you are not proactive in some way. In handling this, then you get more depressed. It becomes more overwhelming. So you can call the student the government office on student aid and try to re negotiate. But Robbins and just sit there, it's good to be proactive in some way. So at least every day you're making one step forward toward a goal.

AI Tries to Save the Whales
"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

"Welcome to episode to seventeen with Ed. A Guy I really like and been a big fan of yours. Jody gooding here. Yeah good to see all thank you you as well you know I was looking. I know most of the stuff about you like I've been a fan before we've been able to be friends. I was just a massive Asif Fan of you growing up and so as I kind of one of the deep dive. 'cause I always like to find out. What do I not know about people coming over to the house? Right listen to this. I don't know if even knew that. Go on this day. December Sixteenth Nineteen Ninety Four. You had the number one song on the Billboard Country Charles Pickup Man. It was your longest lasting number one having spent four weeks at number one from December ninety four to January ninety five. Did you know that was today. No I didn't notice today. I knew the the rest of that. I didn't realize the data. That's pretty cool on this day. Number war yeah so for example Luke. Combs just spent three weeks at number one And that's a long the last three weeks number one especially today really big deal when you have a song this one for four weeks in in Nineteen ninety-four. What's the vibe that well I mean? It was unusual because back then you know they put out a lot more songs that the frequency of you put forth four four or five times a year and now you might have one son stays on the charts. Lingering there at some point For almost a year you know so So that was kind of weird weird part. We had to wait to see what how long it was going to stay number one before we could put another record. So did you feel like that song was going to be a number one song. I knew it from the institute after I heard it really I really do. Yeah I don't know why just something about it just you know. Have you been able to name and nail boasted most of your big songs for the first time you heard them. Yeah pretty much There was a couple that it didn't Like John Deere Green. I hated one. I heard it real. Why why well because the demo now this is a long saga but it but when I first heard it it was done by the rider writer named Dennis Linde and he had a very eclectic sound voice and he did all his own demos at his house so it had a Jew's harp planning ardine are Ernie Ernie and I was like what the heck is that you know in my producer so we'll just ignore the demo part I I'd have to add right now? That is subsequently Loved all Denison. Lindy's demos they were so cool after he got kind of figured out what was what was happening. You know my producer said listen to the words and and and I was like man. I just don't like it at all. He goes. Well I think this hit and I said well we can try you know go in the studio cut it and if it doesn't work out then we scrap grab you know so. Luckily it worked

"So we know that you're both moms and you're renting really successful business at the same time. Can you give some tips for working. Moms out there and how to juggle. We'll work life balance and just tips on avoiding mom. Gil talk a little bit about the good. I just did the segment on morning. Live with julie coal actually so mom guilt is going to happen. No matter what i feel like the moment we sign up for motherhood mom gildas just with us and forever with us so very true. Oh it's never going to go away but i think becoming aware of it right like once. You know you're feeling guilty right now. How can you get yourself out of that space. As i was talking moby for uh what has worked for us always a scheduling so scheduling in the time to be a hundred percent mom and just being fully present with your kids and and doing whatever it is that you need to do to have fun or learn or grow or just be here and do nothing and let your kids got bored so we talked about as well and then scheduling in that time for business and when you're being in when you're in business mode and you're being an entrepreneur being fully present and just focusing on that and then not off focusing on your kids so scheduling for us is just works because if not then we get stuck in oh well i should be doing more for it for my business or i should be doing more with my my kids and that's where the guilt just takes over yeah. It's true. I feel like there's so much destruction right and you know it's like your when you're with your kids. You're kind of half in half out. You're on social media or you're watching t._v. In the background or then if you're working there's also a ton of distractions. They are so really like you said maybe focusing fully being fully present in in whatever you're doing exactly and for me what works is getting out of the house like i cannot be trying to work and having my toddler run up 'cause that's where feeling guilty for both again right so you know scheduling in my one hour two hours for that day getting outside work being fully present on my business and then coming back and being mom and it's it kind of feels your soul right. You're doing what you're passionate. Action about your feeling fulfilled and then you can give from a full cup to your family <hes> yeah that's great tips and when you say you're scheduling that in what does that look like for the both of you.

Robots, Not Humans, Are The New Space Explorers
"This month we're marking the fiftieth anniversary of an achievement that still inspires putting astronauts on the moon but as NPR Joe Palca reports another kind of explores responsible for much of the modern enthusiasm for space exploration look humans do still explore space the international space station is a remarkable piece of hardware but as amazing as the space station is excitement about it is relatively modest well you know since the days of Apollo the greatest adventures in space have been these robots that have gone all over the solar system Emily looked a while it works for the planetary society by these robots lacked while is referring to the various probes that have flown past planets moons and asteroids orbiting some landing on others like to Wallace's sure it would be inspiring to see an astronaut land on Mars but in the meantime inspiration is coming from NASA's Mars Rovers it's very easy to anthro pull more funny spam and imagine ourselves rolling across the surface of Mars I think it's really not a stretch to imagine ourselves in the place of these robots exploring across the solar system millions of people around the world of watched with delight as the six wheeled Rovers of trundle across the Martian surface snapping pictures and taking self please at the national air and space museum Matthew Schendel says visitors make a point of coming to the planetary exhibit this gallery is kind of tucked into the west end of of the museum Chanel is the museum's planetary science curator a prominent feature of the gallery is a large glass case containing versions of all the Rovers NASA sent to Mars starting with the tiny Sojourner rover that landed in nineteen ninety seven right up to the two thousand pound curiosity rover that arrived in twenty twelve people love to come and see the Rovers and really get a sense of what they look like up close and their actual scale now Mars has a mystique all its own so perhaps it's not surprising that people find exploring the red planet enticing but the New Horizons fly by of Pluto the messengers close encounter with mercury and Juno buzzing over Jupiter's polls have all generated great public interest and Lindy Elkins Tanton of Arizona State University says the public's appetite for space exploration goes beyond the familiar bits of the solar system alcon Stanton is lead scientist on a mission to a weird asteroid known as psyche it's weird because psyche is made entirely of metal the only asteroid like it in our solar system true most people haven't heard of psyche but Elkin Stanton says when they learn about it they're hooked we're sending this probe to place that is absolutely uninhabitable in an earth kind of sense and yet the engagement we're getting from the public already two years before launch is profound all content and says she and her team are inviting the public to explore psyche with them we're gonna be sending the images that we get out on to the internet for everyone in the world to see within a half hour of our receiving them so everyone in the world is going to see this crazy world at the same time and we can all scratch our heads together the idea of sharing the experience of space missions is something NASA has embraced Emily lacked Wallace says the public has been able to see the passion and commitment of the scientists who work on these robotic explorers she points to the day NASA decided to end the Cassini mission to Saturn by sending the probe into the planet's atmosphere where it burned up there are cameras on the scientists and engineers who were weeping openly at the end of the spacecraft really humanize the mission and so it made that human connection that maybe in the past you only got through astronauts now you recognize that robotic exploration is human exploration it's just that the humans are back on earth and the robots are going where humans can't currently go Joe Palca
Donald Trump, Prosecutor And Jussie Smollet discussed on Sean Hannity
"But there's an update on the on the smelly case, and we'll get into that. In just a second. It turns out the city of Chicago is not just going to roll over. And I called for the the FBI or the DOJ or the president to call for some sort of oversight or review of what happened in that case. The idea that you could brush something under the rug allow the guy that makes them ridiculous remark about how how he's consistent and historian. He's been saying the same thing in his he's his mother's son. And he could never do something. Like, this is ridiculous. I guess more information came out yesterday that the brothers and Jerry and brothers. They actually admitted to putting the bleach inside of the was a some kind of Tabasco sauce bottle or something some kind of a steak sauce bottle something like that. But they admitted to doing that. And and putting the bleach on them, which I again, I'm not even sure they used to bleach, but the whole thing from start to finish we were skeptical about and the evidence proves even the district attorney or the prosecutor who recused herself who made the deal for smollet, even she said, oh, yes, we probably could have found him guilty. So talking about FOX this. Yeah. Right. Because right now on Fox News. They're also saying that she never formally accused herself. But she said she did. Right. But she didn't do it forms. So not so not like through the paperwork. It didn't actually recuse yourself. The public. She was going to. But didn't right at least? That's what Fox News just I just saw right now on the screen there you go. Yeah. We're finding more it looks. He should be out of a job. She should be forced to resign. Everybody who screwed this thing up should be forced to resign. And the the the deal that was made should be rescinded this guy should be tried. I gotta tell you, man. This is surprising coming from me. But I am super proud of Rahm Emanuel. And the superintendent is his name Johnson. I think it is. And the superintendent in Chicago who are saying, no, this is an okay. No. We don't accept it. No, this should not have happened this way, and this prosecutor should be clearly she should be out of a job. Trump calls Malek case embarrassment announces review is the headline from Reuters.

Thirty thirty-six says he's innocent did not stage the attack Tina Glenn one of the defense. Lawyers told NBC news on Thursday today that she was not concerned by the review to my knowledge nothing. Improper was done. She said in the interview, she acknowledges Millette was friendly with the man he accused of attacking him brothers and Bola and Joe I don't know how to say. And and that they'd spoken on the phone to one of them or he had who'd been working on his fifth. Fitness trainer about an hour before the incident.
