Here in North Texas here with more bread, Barton Brad that Tell me that's going to change some. What are the models? Scary, scary. Ling Lee sparingly up staying in that in that general direction. Well. I'm gonna be honest with you. I do not know exactly what the low is going to be Monday night, but I'm believing it's going to be in single digits. As we've talked the last couple of days. Some of the some of the models well, some of them have a cold bias. And some don't and that's why I try to look at three or 45 different models. You know, right time. And and see who disagrees with each other and see who's lining up. And when you sense more model agreement on that than you know, you kind of go ahead with your forecast, But I would say this Single digit lows in Dallas Fort Worth can cause damage to the infrastructure.

Why Not Offer Candidates The Top Of Your Salary Range?
"News. I'm starting to see a lot. More job eds com across ling. Initially it was mainly in asia and the middle east. But now i'm seeing a lot more come through from the uk europe and even the us is great thing and so i thought it might be a good time to share this little perspective that i've got on a conversation. I had fairly recently about the salary range. We've all seen those job. Ads that offer a salary range between x and y based on your skills and experience and invariably of course what happens is the successful candidate ends up getting off celery which is not at the top of the range. It's usually somewhere in between and the justification is of course that you didn't have quite the skills and experience that we needed for this role so think about that for a minute from the employee perspective. You've been told that this is the salary range now being given an offer. But we're telling you you're not quite good enough. You're not as good as we really wanted. We settled for second best. So we're going to give you ten percent of salary and no you can't do ten percent less than the work. We expect you to do the same work. It's not a great way to start your venture with this new organization as a new employee so instead of doing that what i going the other way. What about saying this person loop we've offered you this role. You didn't quite have the skills and experience that we required but we love your attitude. We love you spunk. We love your approach to life. Whatever it is and we're going to give you the top of the salary range now as noted. You didn't have all the skills and experience we were ideally looking for. But we expect you to do the role and we're gonna give you every chance to do that. So we're going to give you the top salary range if you don't meet the performance criteria that we all agree on over the next six months or so then come the end of the year when you get your salary review we may well adjusted down a little bit. Because that's the range of the role and you haven't met the criteria to me as a new employee that would actually be more motivating ben saying we're going to start you off loa. You have to prove to us that you're good enough. I've already proved that. I'm good enough. Because you've offered me the job. And i've been on both sides of that transaction over the course of my life is probably most of us have and i know as an employer these days. That's generally what we do. We offer the range and then we tend to tend to give the new candidate lists than the range. But if you think about it really from employees perspective. I don't think it's totally motivating so i think a much more motivating play would be go with the top range and if necessary put it on the table and say we may reduce it later on or not either way. You give the employees the chance to shine you. Give them every motivation to work. And succeed in this new role. I think it's

QAnon after Trump: The Storm that never came
"Justin ling is an author and a reporter who has been following the twists and turns of the cunanan movement for most of this year. Hello jesmyn hey thanks for having me of course. Why don't you start before we get into what's happened since joe biden was sworn in What we're various cue in on believers expecting to happen on january. I think the vast majority of people who follow the conspiracy never thought joe biden would ever be inaugurated. They said that repeatedly a whole part of the queue. Mythos has been that something amazing will happen and that donald trump will be at the last minute. Of course cunanan has been sort of the vanguard of the conspiracy that donald trump never actually lost the election. That was old rigged the they were the ones. We're doing a lot of that. Frontline research but research in scare quotes there that underpinned the trump campaign's effort to overturn the election. You can draw a straight line. From a lot of the conspiracies that popped up on q. Forms like eight chan and gab. A right into at the trump campaign's legal filings around the election. Right the conspiracies around dominion voting systems basically gaining sentence and changing trump votes to biden. You know that started on a lot of these forms and wound up in those legal filings from sydney powell from lynnwood from the trump campaign that were an attempt to overturn the results and then also founded the belief of some republican senators congressmen. Who tried to deny. Joe biden certification victory so they consistently thought that those efforts would work when they didn't they deluded themselves with a sort of magical realism thinking that something would happen today. That on this stage will as joe biden's hand hits the bible that there'd be mass arrests that the national guard was really. They're not to protect the inauguration but to set the stage to have joe biden and his compatriots arrested. there was a pervasive belief. That a military tribunal would be set up in dc and that all of these folks from barack obama to bush hillary clinton joe biden kamala harris. Everybody would be arrested and tried for treason. I mean this is literally what many of them believed. I'm not exaggerating. This was the bedrock of the faith. The cunanan had that would turn out in their favor. Any word we're talking. You know to thirty on wednesday afternoon. There were still a whole bunch of folks who think that in the next ten days. It'll all the inauguration will turn out to be a ruse There is a tremendous amount of faith from these folks. Things will turn around in their favor. Any given moment that. If it's not now than pretty soon. And i think it's been horror on many of these folks to watch predictions consistently failed to come true will. Yeah you've been keeping an eye on these forums for for a long time off and on but you've also been Pretty glued to them over the past twenty four hours or so and as you mentioned. We're talking on wednesday afternoon. How of they've been handling it as you know. I trump depart. Says he wasn't supposed to then. Nothing happens at the inauguration. Then nothing happens when they inspect the troops and you know presumably knock on wood No mass arrests take place at the inaugural or whatever but like how. How do they deal with that consistent disappointment so i think there's there's kind of a handful of different camps right is a camp of coup non believers or maybe former cunanan believers who are accepting that things haven't gone their way who are posting right now on a lot of these forms saying you know what that's it i can't do it anymore. My face has been shattered. This was all a ruse. We it was sort of a triple fake out. None of the prediction come true Either q. is never real or they're overplaying their hand or whatever. Basically these folks have accepted that none of this is real I don't know that those people are going to turn around and embrace liberalism tomorrow but at the very least they seem to be disenchanted and done with this sort of far right conspiracy. Making there are other people who have kind of come to the same conclusion but to a different from a different angle. You know there were there. Were people who used to believe this or maybe who will always kind of in the same Area of belief but never quite trust the cunanan thing who are saying. Well we've been played. You know this was all just a gambit for people who make money you'll get power whatever but we have the double down on the same mission does not under the ambit of of cunanan. These are people who are probably very. Who are i know anti semitic who are you know. In some cases homophobic racist who are deeply reactionary and conservative on these are people who just fundamentally can't square a biden administration but who we're going to find a new channel for a lot of those grievances and there are going to be a bunch of people who who stick with who convinced themselves that this is all part of the plan. I've seen a theory emerged in the last day. That says the joe biden is in on it that actually joe biden donald trump working together. And this is. This is people trying to rationalize how these predictions keep failing right. You always have to find a new path to explain everything all there's always numerology that goes into it. There's always some sort of of myth making that you have to do to to sort of comport. What's happening with what you
New York attorney general sues NYPD over conduct at protests
"New York State's attorney general sued the New York City Police Department today, calling its treatment of protestors against racial injustice last spring, part of a long standing pattern of abuse that stem from inadequate training, supervision and discipline. Attorney General Leticia James. This lawsuit includes dozens of examples of alleged misconduct during the spring demonstrations in the wake of George Floyd's police killing, including the use of pepper spray and batons on protesters trapping demonstrators with a technique called kept Ling and arresting medics and legal observers. James, The Democrat, was tasked by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo with investigating whether New York Police Department officers used excessive force to quell unrest and enforce it. Mayor Bill de Blasio EOS Nightly curfew. She issued a preliminary report in July that cited a clear breakdown of trust between police and the public. James is seeking reforms, including the appointment of a federal monitor. Oversee the department's policing tactics at future protests and a court order declaring that the policies and practices the department is during the protests were unlawful. Lawsuit in federal court named the city Mayor de Blasio, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea and chief of department parents Monahan as defendants. Attorney General James criticized de Blasio for saying the use of Kent Ling was justified and Schaeffer saying that the NYPD had a plan, which was executed nearly flawlessly when officers aggressively cracked down on protesters on June 4th in the Bronx. In June at the height of the protests, Mayor de Blasio was accused of misleading the city when he told reporters that he personally saw no use of force around peaceful protests even after officers had been caught on video moving on demonstrators without provocation and bashing them with batons. De Blasio said he met with Attorney General James yesterday and that they share the goal of pushing for major police reforms such as implementing recommendations in previous reports on the NYPD is protests response. De Blasio, also a Democrat, said, however, he did not agree that lawsuit was the solution.
How is QAnon coping with Trumps loss?
"Just ling is a montreal. Based reporter who covers among many other things. How cute on is taking The results of the us election. Hello justin eight or thanks for having me. You're very welcome. Can you just start by Telling us at this moment A couple of weeks after the us election. What is the current Prevailing hyun on theory. It's hard to even say there's a prevailing theory. If you can dream up a totally meritless made up invented conspiracy. Chances are they've at some point. Tried to make it mainstream. Cunanan believes you know different elements within cunanan. Believe everything from the idea that donald trump himself has orchestrated this uncertainty as a way to draw out the deep state so that he can round them up and put them on trial and military tribunals for treason. that's one end of the spectrum. The other end is that this is the deep states. Last stand and that the international child trafficking ball probably led by hillary clinton and maybe the uk royal family have managed to buy off all of the media and all the establishment and all of the states and all of the vote counters and all the vote counting machine companies to orchestrate this plot to steal the election from donald trump. Ben have only narrowly gotten away with it. But you know by god. They're gonna turn the tide yet. I mean that's that's basically where we're at and it sounds fantastic but also what's terrifying is that elements of these conspiracy theories have become orthodoxy or on trump's twitter feed on the news outlets that he keeps promoting recently Whether it's fox. News what. American news Or newsmax a bunch of other right wing websites and it has even filtered its way into court filings that the trump campaign has filed in swing states in an effort to overturn the results of the election. It is bewildering and absolutely out to lunch. But it is having a real impact on the current conversation about this supposed fraud and in a minute. I'm going to ask you what that means for democracy in the bigger picture but of all those theories you just mentioned None of them seem to be well. trump lost so maybe q. Was wrong and maybe we should look at this more critically. That happening anywhere. Yeah i mean i. It's so hard to say right. So there are definitely posts in the queue world From followers who are saying. We've been let down one too many times. This is not the first chewing on prediction to not come true. I mean you for those who are still kind of behind the curve. on that i envy you You know who cunanan believes that there is a high ranking intelligence official who been posting information to message board eight chan under the pseudonym q. and has been revealing elements of a deep state plot against the president and the president's own crusade to beat that the state back now. A lot of those posts are incredibly cryptic but in in the few circumstances where q had made very direct and obvious predictions. They've not come true. There has had to be some incredible mental gymnastics in order for kyun on followers to conclude that in fact he was right all along. There's all sorts of some sort of numerology that goes into saying. Oh well in fact you know. It didn't happen on this day but later on. The one point two predicted that the national guard had been dispatched to cities across america as part of the mass arrest of democratic officials including hillary clinton well. Obviously that didn't happen but when years later the national guard was sent out. By the president to clamp down on the demonstrations across the country while queuing on sure found a way to reconcile that prediction with the the eventually use of the national

This add to the job concept announced across industries from energy to finance our global economics and policy. Aditya Kathleen Hays this year Kathleen the Airlines one bluffing when they said it was make or break time, I mean, we had from back in allies United Airlines. Why now? Why today Because they made it very clear that by this time by the end of the third quarter by the beginning of the fourth quarter, they would need to have more funding on the Sunday news shows. David Parker, the CEO of American Airlines. Made this point very clear. He was so optimistic that Congress the White House could get it together and get something passed.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg lies in state at U.S. Capitol
"At the Supreme Court on Friday, late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman And first Jewish person ever to lie in state at the U. S. Capitol. Anita, why hasn't a woman ever help this honor before? That's a great question? You know, they've been doing this tradition since 18 52. And it hasn't been as many people as you might think. It's been about 35. So a lot of presidents, you know other other people, but mostly are obviously this is always for someone who serves in the government. Four civilians have also been honored, but it's not called lying in state. So Congress decides who does this, and, you know, obviously many elected officials in this country until more recently were men. Well, Devlin before the capital Justice Ginsburg lay in repose of the Supreme Court. Can you describe this remembrance was like and who came to pay their respects? Well, pretty much the entire city came to respect it. And it was. It was an interesting Mix because it began as sort of a spontaneous, Ah, demonstration of support remembrance that the very night of her death outside the Supreme Court. And then obviously it morphed into the official pageantry of remembrance. And, you know, I think I think the video that is probably going to be most lasting from that is People chanting against the president when he showed up, you know, I think it says something about the state of our politics right now, that even in you know, a memorial setting That the political anger is so great that people are going to essentially boo the president public. On DH That just tells you what the stakes are of that. You know, her death is obviously sad, and obviously a moment in history. But it's also another. You know another front in this political battle that were that were following Fernando what he tells about Justice Ginsburg's funeral plans and and where shall ultimately be laid to rest? Um, she will be laid to rest on Arlington National Cemetery next to her husband, Marty Ginsburg than in section that is reserved for Former members of the Supreme Court. And today, the Friday will be the on Ly Day that she will be lying in state in the U. S Capitol and the need a set of historic moment is the first woman first person was Jewish Delight in state.

Chinese Leaders Split Over Releasing Blacklist of U.S. Companies
"Were exclusively reporting on a new development in the ongoing battle between Washington and Beijing over technology. China. Has Been Working on a blacklist that could punish American tech companies, but there's disagreement at the highest levels of China's leadership over whether they should issue a blacklist before or after the US election, our correspondent Leyla way has been reporting on this issue and joins us now Ling looking forward to this conversation. So welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you mark. So the one thing that has struck me is the fact that China has been very up front about this notion of a blacklist. How did it come about and what's the goal behind it sir? You're right China announced as intention to create. Unreliable entity list backing made last year but they have really kept to the whole process secretive. So what happened backing May to sell? Tin Soon, after Washington released entity list, basically restricting Weiwei, big Chinese, telecom giant, restricted hallways excess to US components and technology. So basically China's move was to match the trump administration's stepped up sanctions and crack down on Chinese companies. Especially, some of the best known technology companies so is part of the whole tit for tat strategy. The Chinese government has been using everything's the trade war broke out and explain what China may be thinking about as it considers the consequences of a blacklist. So this. Is This entity realize basically is part of China's ways to hit back at the US but they have to be very careful in terms of hall heart they push back right because the leadership really is also a dilemma on one hand they want to satisfy the urge to do something to hit back at the. US. On the other hand there's still wary of completely destroying the relationship which would hurt the Chinese leadership to at home politically and would also heard China's economy as well. So where do things stand currently because in your reporting, you said that leaders are hesitant to pull the trigger to this day. We still do not know which American firm the for for infirm is on the list because the Chinese leadership has intentionally kept it a secret of process you know on one hand you know just by announcing this list, they managed to keep foreign companies especially American firms on the actions on the other hand. Dad Really reflects the internal debate that currently is going on within the Chinese government. You have one faction officials who think, Oh, we should release the names as soon as we can. To really protect our rights and our stove and t just stand up to the American hack mom, and then you have another group of Fitch shows senior officials who are arguing we should try not to provoke trump any stretching the further you know we should be really cautious because you know the stakes very high. If you know there's a very high risks dead, the trump administration would step up sanctions again, potentially targeting even more Chinese firms that would really hurt China's economy main industries significantly. Politically speaking, these are tough times between the US and China with this list. Is there a risk of making things perhaps even worse? Definitely there's a risk that the mere disclosure of the existence of this list would provoke the trump who stretching further because as you know the sentiment toward China Washington this days it's it's quite active as evidenced by the cascade of actions targeting Chinese companies or Chinese officials but China right now doesn't appear in any way that they would compromise in any way instead they basically hit back at. Every punch that has been thrown by the US government so even The idea that they are creating a list be seeing as. Provocation in the eyes of some US officials. So definitely, there is a big risk that this move this moved to simply disclose that the distance of the list is going to provoke Washington even more and lead to further escalation of tensions. I think this discussion is going to continue for quite some time the journals

"Welcome back former view co host Lisa Ling and her family are currently sheltering in place in Los Angeles. So this is about as close as to as we can actually get at the hot topics table. Hey Lisa Nice to say dylan thanks for having me back on what? Thanks for coming your home with your family. How you passing the time you know. We're we're fortunate under the circumstances. Basically I take my kids back and forth between one grandma's house and the grandma's house and that's it that's all that we don't go anywhere else and it's been it's been it's been fine. Go from my kids driving the absolutely nuts to just savoring every minute that we have together. this this this situation that we're in right now is just so surreal. I mean we are living through a period that is going to be read about in history books in perpetuity. So you know just recognizing the significance of this period is has not gotten lost on me at all. Hi Lisa this. Is Sarah a few days ago? You wrote a message to the president on your instagram page. Asking him why he was choosing to call the corona virus that China virus. Why did you want to call this out? And what do you think his reason for doing? This is astounded win. He started calling the corona virus. The Chinese virus. I mean this. It's been months since this crisis began and to me. It just seemed like a way to deflect attention from the fact that he was not taking it seriously for months and months. I just didn't understand why of all people at all times. He would start to to call. This year's that has a name. It's the name is cove in nineteen eighty two. The only person the world over who started to call it the Chinese virus. It seemed like he was deflecting. Blame Lisa you've talked about how dangerous this is for the Asian American community and I completely agree with you. I was so infuriated when the president of the United States started calling the China virus and the Wuhan Virus. Have you or any of your family and friends experience any racism since the president's started calling it the Chinese virus. Oh absolutely A. I have friends. Kids who've been taunted. I have friends who who have talked about being harassed in places and if you just if you google stories about about Asians being harassed since the president started calling this Chinese virus there are countless stories. In fact the national crisis text. Hotline has had a sizable increase of Asians reporting. That they are feeling depressed because they've been bullied and because they feel like they are somehow responsible for this crisis because the president has characterize it as as the Chinese virus. Wow Haley say Megan. I think all of us are in agreement that any kind of racism or bigotry directed towards any Asian. American is not something that can we can stand. It's disgusting and I think we're all in agreement that it's not something that should be taking place in this country. All that being said I had a lot of strong criticism about the Chinese government. Suppressing information coming out of the country. There was actually a whistle. Blower doctor was incredibly brave. Trying to warn the rest of the world about the severity of cove nineteen has since gone missing. No one knows where he is. Where do you think the fine line is in the media where we can still criticize the Chinese government and the Communist regime were suppressing information? And letting it get. This far was a great question. Megan and I by no means have any any love or affection for the Chinese government and I have found. Is that their actions immediately. After the virus was discovered in Wuhan their actions have been indefensible. That that that doctor. May He rest in peace. Who sounded the alarm that there that that that this is something that we should be concerned about? The world should be concerned about the fact that he was arrested to me is unconscionable absolutely unconscionable but this idea that had we had we known the severity of it sooner would have made us prepare even sooner is is somewhat ludicrous. Because now we're still. We're months into this crisis now and up until very very recently up until it actually hit the United States. Our President was in denial about it. And still calling it a hoax. I mean my own husband. With thirty five people had died of this virus in China and thousands of people had been affected. This is very very early on my husband. Said this is something different. I have never a witnessed a virus. That was spreading so quickly that is going to have serious serious consequences the most prominent neurologist in the world were saying this has to be taken seriously and it wasn't until I hit US soil and even even weeks. After the first person died in Washington state. The president started becoming more serious about this so that January they knew in January. This was what the but how can we change this going forward? Because there's a lot of anger and a lot of frustration. A lot of fear with I would say the great swath of the American public and I don't disagree with you that this administration at this point. I mean to say that that they're going to have a lot of answering to deal with. The slow response is putting it extremely mildly. But what can we learn from this just as citizens in the United States because clearly if there's one thing we weren't if that we cannot trust the government to work out for us in the situation like this well and that's the thing and we could sit here and blame China until we're blue in the face? But how is that going to help us right now? The fact of the matter is that we have. We have just passed thousand. American Americans who died of Corona virus are hospitals are are hugely overwhelmed. There is this this this this invisible and silent killer amongst us and we need to address it now. So focusing on blaming China isn't going to do us any good now in fact if anything we should be asking China for help. They have reported no new cases of Corona virus. We should be saying okay. How can you help us now because we are now the epicenter of the world? We'll talk more with Lisa Ling when we come back. Hey we.
"ling" Discussed on My Worst Investment Ever Podcast
"And that's when I started to realize for myself like what is it. What is my legacy and the other thing that it reminds me of. Is the idea that you know. They say that. You can't take something with you when you die. So how do we live on and I think that how we live on is in the spirit of others that somehow we touched people in a way that there's something that lives on from us if what you leave behind his a good thing a memory or a legacy that people find really positive because once you go you don't have control off the legacy that you have so people could take it and twisted to their own agenda and and things like that and I'm like I don't know if I actually want that or not? This teacher had Dr Demming when when he was ninety. One years old and I was twenty five and this man stood up for two days straight talking about what he was passionate about and he influenced me for the rest of my life and I have a student who came to me and said you know. You taught me my first class in finance in Nineteen ninety-two and because of that class that I went on to master's and then a PhD and finance and teach finance. And I thought you know. I didn't know that much about finance at the time but I brought a lot of passion and energy and then you realize that passionate energy for what you're doing can really change the world and that's one of the reason why people often say you know. Find what you're passionate about do it? So there's a lot of different things that you made me think about by going through. There's anything anything else that you would add. I wanted to add about your perception of Asian family. So it's not fair to generalize all Asian families especially now when we're living in a globalised world and there's access to or exposure to different cultures so that exposure to different cultures of course will influence the dynamics of families. And how did they communicate with each other but also went to also agree with you in a sense that families in Asia? They're close in a traditional sense. But I suppose because of the higher sense of hierarchy where parents are seen as authority figures. They are the ones supposed to take care of the kids underneath them. And they're the ones who make the decision so because of that distance therefore the communication is a lot more stunted it's not as open as families in the US. But I also won't general throughout the US no generalization here where families are a lot more informal and there's less of a authoritarian kind of distance. I'm not saying. Parents are authority areas of the hierarchy. The respect for elders that helped shape and influence the communication are non-communication. So I suppose from your perspective. Communication is really just sharing. What's on our minds. What our concerns are Asian families? Do that too but probably more muted. I don't know to write word. Verbal less verbal. Yeah so less open maybe with a look or a facial expression or a smile or twitch in the eye or something you know the other person would know what is it that you're going to you or someone you know making a meal for you and serving it and saying you know through that action you know care they love you or whatever that they may not express it in the same way. Yeah exactly great. That's different forms. Great Point and of course one of the biggest fallacies that we can make in logic is sweeping generalization. So you're very right that I think for the dramatic effect the way I told that story but yeah I mean I guess what I other aspect to it is you can think about the cultural cultural framework through which each of us look at things. So I'm of course looking through a cultural framework when I'm looking at Asia from you know from the US. Although now after living in Asia longer than I've lived in the US things opted more of a tie kind of culture in your behavioral repertoire. Will I think there's two things that would be evidence of that? The first one is that I try to avoid conflict in life and in business and stuff that I go out of my way to avoid that whereas if you were back in the US there's no reason to avoid conflict but in Thailand. There's really no major benefit that comes through conflict. That's the first thing and then the second one is that when my father passed away you know just the idea of my mother. Coming in living with me is something that I would have thought about when I was living in the US and even my sister you know the way she thought about it was different but basically the idea of get mom on a plane with me and bring her back to Thailand and now living with me now for almost four years something something. I would have never have done if I hadn't have been kind of. Let's say cultured or socialized in tie the way tie people look at family and that definitely I would say is a concrete saying that can kinda give give some support as to whether I've adopted some of the the way of thinking so it is not common to with your mom's still but she's awesome. Mom Mom mom awesome. If you're a mom you're awesome. Yeah exactly all right so based on what you learn from this experience and what you continue to learn. What one action would you recommend our listeners? Take to avoid suffering the same fate. It's okay to take time out and reflect what matters to you because when we're too busy with our day to day life. We don't really sit to think whether what we're doing actually means anything in the long run so if like say you missed an appointment today or you have to. Goto meeting because some boss or someone senior says it's urgent but then you haven't finished your homework or whatever if you think about it. What is the impact that it will have on you one year from now five years or ten years from now if the impact is not significant? Then then it's okay sit and reflect. Think about what means to you. What is what is of value to you what you cannot live without and also consider. Are you putting enough time and effort into that or not? 'cause time is everyone has a time limit. We just don't know when that limit is Great so last question. What's your number one goal for the next twelve months so as I've mentioned earlier I forgot my podcast leaders learning. I'm having so much fun. Producing that podcast. Show it's recently passed. Four hundred thousand unique downloads. I'm very very pleased. I'm hoping to produce two more seasons for this year at hopefully I'll get more people to be excited about learning. That's one and for my culture spark global. I am working on a new training programs. I'm doing some research and putting on materials together. It'll be focused on helping leaders and managers to better lead multicultural team.

"It's so funny because it's a Yahoo address that I don't know I don't use anymore but I keep it It's pretty amazing. It's also just so again it's like it's it's to to me. It's that thing is the powers that be you sometimes look at all these people making these big normal decisions that are affecting the direct ability to communicate okay and know each other like that bridge. I always think about how do you. How do you meet halfway on that bridge and really try to understand each other in your cultures? And we're so we're so learned by where we come from and what we know and what we're told and when you finally get to especial woman to woman when you talk about you know she was obviously going through something and you just want to embrace her to let her know at least physically that she's But it's going to be okay. That type of humanity is what is what we forget to think about out because one man decides that this is how he's going to rule his country yet. We're all dealing with the same emotive challenging. We're all we. We all want the same things you know irrespective of where we come from or what. We espouse politically right. I mean our country right now is so Divided the whole world is so divided but at the end of the day when you actually like interact with people. You're you're in their physical presence. You're looking them in the I like you. You do start start to realize that ultimately we all want the same things and we're all driven by the same desire which is to provide for our families and to protect them and it's funny we true and you go to travel a lot. I do work with the World Food Programme See. Gandhi is different places. And you meet. It's really interesting. People will who I mean. There's no there's no. I don't relate to any part of what their experiences until you go into their house house and you start talking to women who just had a baby you start talking to each other in kind of sign. Language audience cages grabbed her flipped breastfeeding and like making. Oh so tired. And it hurt next thing. You know you're having an absolutely relatable bowl conversation about what it is to feed your babies totally We can all relate to each other in some capacity. It's about me. It's it's about making those connections like you can't experiencing experience that without being there without meeting with people face to face not on facebook but face to face. We definitely need more face to face. I tell my kids are twelve nine and six and I'm like look when you my I boys Mike when you guys are GonNa get to girls and stuff is that you're not going to be texting them to go to a movie. I said I'm going to make sure that you are going to. Actually you stand in front of this person and ask them to burn. Remember when we were kids and like when we there was a boy or girl that you liked and how like remember those feelings you got when you were about to call them you know like I. Those are so for me and feel what how `bout when you actually had to call a landline and the parent heretic. Because and you had to have such like act like the guts to you know if over Karen. Oh Hey is josh there. The WHO's like kate the horror but again it's like it's that feeling you know and I think that this generation now that's grown up with these devices. They don't help feel anymore because they don't need to and they they're texting or their meeting people via APPS and it's like I could tell it to you. I mean what what when he in terms of what you're talking about. I know but I really want to do one thing. I just want the reunion like union. The plane ride. And it's it's like you get off the plane and it's about when you realize that you were going to go home. Who told you that you were going to go home? Well so I mean it. It was a long process and I had requested that a number of different people serve as an Voi- to come help with our release but there was one one person in particular that I began to realize was the one that the North Koreans needed and wanted and that was former president Bill Clinton and so I called my sister. And can you imagine making that call like highly. So do you think Bill Clinton can come. I'm North Korea. IT WAS A. I didn't think that was going to happen. I didn't think that He would be approved to make that trump But I did convey that to my sister and it was like the worst person to have been suggested because Hillary Clinton was our our chief different diplomat. Prisoner Obama had not been in office out long and Al Laura worked for a company that Al Gore ran and so for a myriad of reasons. I thought. Please don't ask for Bill Clinton but he was the only one who Who could do it? And apparently he agreed to do it without any question and and by the way Secretary Clinton also said if that's who they need let's let's let's make this happen. Yes so even even though even though I was apprehensive because I didn't think he would be approved given also this was a hugely sensitive to time between the two countries He was and he made that that trip and I was informed that an important on Voi- had just touched down in Pyongyang and that I might get to go home and this was a huge shock for me This was just. It's nearly five months into the captivity and it really was a huge shock and and from that minute on things actually moved very quickly We were taken to a hotel Yuda. My colleague and I were reunited. We were taken to a hotel to meet with him I mean I felt like I was having an out about an experience. That's when you know I saw a President Clinton there at that hotel and Really the presence of my country standing before me in the form of the forty second president too much too early in the morning and just fly back with President Than Clinton I did at his team and it was. I mean they were so amazing..

"Much invested in humanitarian stuff. Yeah and fearless. They're both so fearless so then they wrote their book called somewhere inside one sister's captivity in North Korea and the other's fight to bring her home. We loved having them here and and they were awesome. Yeah so here we go enjoy enjoy Lisa and Laura Laura first of all welcome whereas we've been having so much fun doing doing this. We've been it's a it's a different kind of dynamic. We don't do this for a living you guys do. So what I find intriguing about that is I know as an actor sure I have that desire to try to understand different human behavior and that I think is really what sparks me to be a storyteller. What let's start with you? Lisa like what initiated this curiosity to venture off in this career path. So Lauren I grew up in a in a town outside outside of Sacramento California called Carmichael and it was not a very diverse place and we didn't have a lot of money. Our parents got a divorce. When I was seven Kevin Laura was four and we really never got a chance to travel that much but yet I think both of us have always had like a pretty insatiable curiosity acidy and so the TV was our favorite babysitter? It was on in our home all all the time and so I thought if I could somehow get on TV. E maybe I could have a better life one day and I had found out about auditions at a local mall for a for a teen magazine. Show I did it. I got hired but it wasn't until I started working. I got hired because I'd had that. TV experience. I got hired to report for a show that was seen in middle schools and high schools across the country called channel. One News in fact Anderson Cooper from CNN was one of my colleagues there and that show because it was seen in schools. They hired a bunch of young looking correspondence to deliver over the news and to send out into the world to cover story. I was only eighteen when I started at Channel One and for a kid who had never gotten a chance to really travel much. It was the most eye opening experience you could imagine. And so I was sent to cover stories I was sent in to cover the Russian referendum elections sent to cover stories about the drug wars in South America stories about globalization In India and China. And Wow one year. This is a couple of years after I'd started. They sent me a cover the civil war in Afghanistan. They asked me if I wanted to cover the civil war in Afghanistan. And we'd we'd be going in with the Red Cross and so I felt fairly secure going in with them until I agreed. And I'm twenty one years old at the time and from the moment when we descended from the steps of the Red Cross plane. I was just in this state of shock by the scene that greeted me on the ground. I was immediately surrounded by throngs of young boys who looked no more than ten years old. who were carrying Kalashnikov? RPG's and you don't weapons at their. That were larger than they were and it was at that moment during during that experience that I realized that I I wanted to continue doing this kind of work not because I wanted to be on TV to have a better life. But because does I knew as a young person that our country the US was so involved in Afghanistan. They're the throughout the nineteen eighties. But that no one in my world knew that this the scene existed in the world knew that there were thousands of young boys who were harboring these weapons that were processed possibly even paid for by the United States and that experience really propelled me to want to communicate stories about things that were happening in the world to a wider audience. And I got I got that that travel bug. I don't you know and I it. Just it was such a world that was so foreign so foreign written from mine like never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect I would see something like that and it was almost like this divine kind of communication -cation to me that this is what I was supposed to do. What about the fear factor? Oh it's terrifying her farm. Oh Yeah I mean. We traveled to the front lines of the civil war there and it was is terrifying but it was this sense of adrenaline that I had never experienced before and I. I wouldn't sexy isn't it. I have a friend who who says that. There's something quite sexy about maybe not as it's happening sort of the world inside of it when you live with that sort of adrenaline. I and you know that these things that you're doing a really important. You meet the most interesting people you know. It's I would not say that I'm an adrenaline junkie by any means. But I've always since that experienced really recognize those moments when I feel alive you know like I think we go through our days as most of us can't even remember what we did yesterday right. 'cause things become perfunctory after awhile right when you're in the world and you're not just visiting touristy destinations guestimations yet right. You're like immersed in someone else's life. Your senses are so heightened. You're thinking so much more sort of strongly strongly right and you are just totally aware of your surroundings. And I'm not just talking about war zones just anywhere outside of your comfort zone. I like that feeling like I. I liked to feel all of those things and you know. Unfortunately we've gotten to a place where we just don't really like to feel anymore. That's really I mean I was. I was afraid to go to melrose. I was scared to Martel. Melrose fearful for you to cross the four. Oh Five Live you. You live right by the forum so I mean I'm making this assumption but I would think just based on my relationship Bruce of my siblings that leases you know entrance into this world. She's eighteen years old. Which means you're three years younger so that must must have been really inspiring for you and you must have looked up to that in a sense when you were younger? Absolutely I mean. Lisa talks about how she when we were watching. TV She looked at Connie anti-chiang who was the closest person that she could identify with. That looked like her and was doing these amazing things and for me I guess my Connie Chung was Lisa Ling and conceal motionless Eh..
"ling" Discussed on Work in Progress with Sophia Bush
"Do but I I think that's one of the reasons why when I was talking about how when we kind of showed that vulnerability were on a live stage Drayton so you can't you can't put a filter on that like you cannot instagram you know whatever just comes out of your mouth comes out of your mouth but with social media now you you can perfect every image and you can choose what you decide to show the world which is empowering on the one hand but on the other hand. I think it's really it's really made a whole generation of young people feel so much more insecure in so many ways days. It's the worst aspects of high school and popularity magnified. You know and it's and you're right. Nobody has it figured out you know but for some reason we now exist in this world where we feel compelled to convey that that we have more that life is great. When more people are I mean. I don't know if you feel less but I've been I've been in a little bit of a funk in the last couple of weeks because I just I just feel like people are really hurting right now. You know just hearing about how many suicides have happened. You know my my good good friend is the vice provost of wellness at USC and he texts me to say that in the last three weeks been five suicides there too who in two days there's something going on right now where where young people are just they're they're. They're hurting and in the past I think I think young people have always had an stripe and in the past they would have sought out human beings and now they're just going straight street to their devices and in some cases digging themselves deeper into a hole yeah because the devices perpetuate the lie that everyone else has it all figured yeah I mean I don't know about you but when I see a bunch of girlfriends get together for dinner and they didn't call me. I feel like stabbing the Harley course I was. I was here but I get over it because I it's you know it's just a momentary kind of Pang but for young young people who who in some in so many ways don't feel like life worth living if it's not on social media it's it's devastating. It's really devastating and so on the one hand I think if we if we if we if we show our vulnerabilities I think it makes or allows people to relate to us but you know what we really showing yeah and yet it feels so important I sometimes when I get nervous to share something that might be quote quote unquote too personal. I think I almost feel like it's a duty to do so because so much of what's being shared as impersonal yeah and I think about how we can all kind of walk in the world and and press toward kindness or self acceptance or exploration or or curiosity and I think we could really use it and it's part of the reason that I'm so glad you're show it was on like just I. I'm so relieved and yeah I guess I get curious about. The evolution of is well because you went from the view. You ended up working for Oprah as an investigative reporter which is just got to be the lowest thing for for pretty cool. All I think about that. I mean her show was such touch point for so many people to learn about each other and be vulnerable yeah I really. I missed that show show so much. I think we all miss it. I'm like please just come back. Yeah I know you did it and you served your time and it's probably really nice to be retired on your ranch but please come back yeah. I missed that just that thoughtful dialogue every day. It's it's really hard to find that I mean unfortunately there are podcasts but to have that staple every day when you got there first of all how did you get there and then uh what what kinds of stories were you asked to cover so I went on the Oprah show to promote an episode that I had done for the National Geographic Channel at the the time I was hosting a show called explorer and I believe it was an episode about incarcerated mothers that we produced and the Oprah for so asked me to come on and promoted or or they agreed to allow me to come on and promote it and Oprah and her team were I. I think they were really touched by the episode but they were looking for someone to sort of send out into the world to cover those kinds of stories and and so of course it was the greatest honor of my life to have been asked to to work on her show but it there's always so surreal when I would be sitting next to her and trying to explain what I'd just done and I look up in there but but I I'm certain I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now if she and her team hadn't taken a risk on me or or brought me the into their fold and the view as much as I you know was challenged to be there because I just it was it was an awkward kind of job a you know they're they're all sort of steps to get to where I am now but oprah believing in me encouraging me to tell these kinds of stories and in her own just genuine curiosity really I think is is the reason I'm doing this this you know she she gave me the platform to be able to do that on on such a widespread level and and I will always be so grateful for that yeah. Is there a story in particular from that time that really sticks out in your mind something that just felt so so many of them continue to live with me but when she she sent me to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to work on a story about gang rape mm-hmm and a about these villages that would just be torn apart and ransacked and the things that children were forced to to watch happen to their mother or even take part in it was so devastating you know whenever I would show up up. I would see the audience and I think to myself. Oh my God you came here probably to get a car and here I'm going to be talking about gang rape in the Congo but the audience our audience is always incredible and so receptive and in in in one episode of television. I think thinking about three million dollars was raised. Wow for the organization that I accompanied to report that story. Sorry it might not have been that airing it might have been multiple airings but cumulatively about three million dollars was raised and that's when I recognized one the power of Oprah I mean you know of course we all know her to be. You know she's Oprah but that people really did want to know about things that were happening in the world and that it required someone like Oprah right to say look. I know there's a lot happening in the world and it's it's. It's it's hard to get invested in people in faraway places but here's why it's it's important that you're aware that this is happening. I mean what she did for her. Audience is just it's indescribable. It can never be replaced placed in the impact that she made on so many people is just colossal. That's so cool. What do you think you learned about yourself off when you were working on that show what I learned about myself so much. I learned that everything that I do moving forward forward every job that I ever take or do I want to have an impact. I want to contribute positively to the conversation because I can then you can choose to contribute positively in what you do in how you act in what you put out into the universe and and and watching her do so and getting an opportunity on her platform to be able to do that just really solidified that desire in me you to just want to put productive energy out there into the world productive energy. I like that now. You mentioned something earlier and I just think it's an incredible right a ball story. He mentioned that your sister is also a journalist and Laura was on assignment in North Korea. She was on assignment in South Korea and China. That was where we thought she was going. She was and she tim was held captive. In North Korea right what Hannah team hired a fixer someone who had worked with different television outlets before her to take them to observe the thoroughfare where people were escaping from North Korea and seeking refuge in China so they hire this fixer to just show them where the the line of demarcation is and it is believed that he had nefarious intentions and intentionally took them to cross the border into North Korea and when they when they realized realized that they had crossed into North Korea and they were they had turned around and we're heading back to the Chinese side they heard soldiers yelling and they started to run and they were firmly on the Chinese side of the border when North Korean soldiers crossed crossed into another country violated their their national sovereignty and violently dragged my sister and her colleague back in North Korea so that was a pretty harrowing Pretty Harrowing Experience and she was then held for five months inside a country with which we have no diplomatic relationship and even though I I had worked as a journalist for many many years I thought that we could just pick up a phone and call and negotiate sheet a release but when two countries have no diplomatic relationship you just you can't even do that so it was a pretty pretty arduous ordeal all to say the least and terrifying. I can't even Fathom I. I'm just so awestruck by what what both of your experiences must have been on on each end of of that reality for five months and I'm curious to your point because we have no relationship an asterisk what's happening. Now is utterly insane and I wonder how you even begin because you know the severity of the reality there as journalists and you worked so frantically to get her free and it took so long and I wonder how you even know where to start will you don't. I mean I. I called everyone everyone. I knew and over time I had developed you know quite a quite a rolodex of contacts in the in the in the world of diplomacy and I I just I tried to get in contact with everyone I could and at I was just you know I found myself at an impasse time and time again people like Oprah called. Give me the to see if she could do anything but even oprah could do anything and former presidents and secretaries of state and really it was it was my sister who.

What is that experience like and you. You know you're twenty one years old. Are you guys going to bars are you. What are you. What is your husband alive. When you're a journalist at twenty one traveling the globe what is that how do you date. What's your social life from so curie well dating dating was an I'm married now but it's always it's been a challenge because come back from these crazy unbelievable experiences and WanNa talk to people about it but it kind of made people feel not insecure but I I just don't really have anything to say I I can't really contribute to the conversation -sation and so you just kind of just compartmentalize and that was particularly challenging in relationships especially because I would go out with guys who I think fancy themselves is like masculine guys and I come back and I just jumped out of helicopters as with Colombian narco nocco police into cocaine invested laboratories in the jungles and they're kind of like Whoa I. I don't really know what to say. The paradigm over don't know how to react yeah so so I I. I've always just kind of kept my circles very three tight. My sister also journalist so she and I probably talking the phone five times a day at least and I've just always I've always been the kind of person because I interact with so many people to just keep my inner circle pretty pretty pretty tight yeah what it is it like when you talk about the relationships that you build with these people these communities that you visit. Do you have to have a sort of boundary almost like doc. Dr Does where you can't allow continued expectation of a relationship after a story or can you keep it. It's a great question and it's a tough one to answer because I give my cell phone number to just about anyone anyone that I I spend time with and and we profile because what they've shared with me is often so deeply person in all it's it's it's more personal than they've ever shared with even their closest friends or family members and I have an I feel like I have an obligated to maintain contact with these people because they've done that they've shared that with me and I take that responsibility very seriously and in many ways I feel closer to them for them. Having shared this with me then I even feel with some of my own own friends or people I call friends because we just go to that place and my my husband. He thought it was pretty funny. That our wedding we have we both have huge families and so when we got married we just decided how just let's invite everyone. Let's just have a big party and just invite everyone so I had you know family that we profiled. Who's who lost their house in Hurricane Katrina. We had a family who adopted Chinese girls who I'd stayed in contact with. We had a bunch of police officers. We had some drug council I because it I I the relationship that that the relationships that I build with these people they're real relationships because of what people people have shared with me and and I am so fortunate to be able to have these kinds of relationships and I don't I don't stay in touch with everyone and that I've ever profiled but they all have my number and can text or call me and a text thread going right. Now this this man that I profiled when I was working for the Oprah show his entire family was addicted to heroin his his wife eventually succumbed uh-huh d- to addiction her addiction he ended up incarcerated text me all the time to tell me that he just got a his his union union license and he sends me pictures of the House. He's building. He told me he just bought his dad's truck from him the first vehicle he's ever bought and I cherish those those text messages from those people and I get them randomly but I I cherish them yeah. When someone really trusts you at their truth it's such an intimate experience and how beautiful it must be to really get to cultivate that repeatedly with people especially because you choose to bear a witness and a lot of communities that people aren't paying attention to so there's such there's such a gift in hearing people will? That's the whole that's that's. That's that's the gist of my work yes and again. I fall into the trap of of you know listening to people who again espouse the same values that I do but when it comes to my work I really really try hard to to put my judgement aside and just hear people and it really has been enlightening for me to do that that I've even embedded with a militia. You know a a bunch of guys who are who are defiant about their second amendment rights. It's and they let me embed with them because they knew that. Even though I vehemently we oppose you know I have I have I have visceral feelings about about gun control and whether people should possess assault weapons they they knew I would give them a fair shot and allow them to to talk right. They knew that I would not be be exploitative. I might I might express my feelings but I would give them a chance to talk and that's what we really try you to do. I don't know that a lot of shows really do that. I look at myself as just a vehicle through which people can experience things and I might hold your hand to introduce you to people that you might otherwise never encounter but I'm not going to tell you what to think and I'm not going going to make the story about me. I'm GONNA give you a chance to get to know people that you might not otherwise have the time or have the desire to get to know and who knows in the end you might walk away feeling a little bit differently or you might find that you can relate to these people in ways that you might not have otherwise ever thought you could yeah. It's so cool. It's it's such a service really and I think a reminder and I am curious curious because obviously you're you're in the space where you are comfortable getting so personal with people but I remember this is my moments where I just unabashed fan where McGuire remember when this article of I remember you know when you started on the view you coming in from this space as a journalist and then coming in to still be a journalist but to share of yourself from way. I was guard yeah there. Was this expectation that you were just going to open up about. Every aspect of your life and you got asked a question immediately that made you very uncomfortable. I don't know if you you WanNa talk about that or not. But how do you do that and what's the shift because you were at USC. You're a journalist I also I went to USC. I don't know if we've ever talked about that. I get very excited about it. I'm like Annenberg for life. I loved it so so much but what what is that kind of shift feel like in. How did you as a as a young woman at that stage in your career. How did you adjust for that. Ah I think it would be so good for so many women listening to hear it was pretty surreal one because I was a journalist most before I started the view and it was really drooled into me to not talk about my personal life or or just kind of you know just be cautious about about expressing too much and then here I am on the view sitting next to Barbara Walters Vieira and star Jones and Meredith Vieira's asking asking if I'm a virgin or not on my first day to which I replied my dad's watching right now. I'll just say yes. I think that I try hard to keep most of my life private things that are really really personal but I do think that by sharing bits and pieces. I do think that people feel like they can trust me. Even more more I mean I think Meredith Vieira the same thing happened for her she have deviated from that characterization Asian of what a reporter should reveal and I think it it it served her well because people came to really lake her and and feel for her or when she was going through you know issues with her her husband who you had ms or in a raising three kids and being a working mom and it wasn't intentional for me. I think in the in a way going to view was helpful because again not only did I come from a journalism background but I'm Asian so Asian. Culture is probably the least communicative the most shutdown community there is ethnic community and so it was a real shift for me to be expressive and to do so on a national television in front of a national television audience. It must have been a bit of a culture shock for sure oh for sure it was so uneasy but uh-huh so. How did you keep coming in every you know? I think that I I was pretty cautious about what I was willing to talk about and what I didn't want to talk about but I got myself into trouble a few times because it is a it is a show that really encourages candor and it was one of the few that did so it. Was You know the view is a pioneer at the time as you had journalists journalist sitting at this table and they were talking about everything happening in their lives but it was I think as much as I wasn't wasn't crazy about the job I think I develop skills there that have have served me well because I do think that people relate late to you more if you let them in a little bit but but it's but it's still important to have boundaries of course well yeah. God I think about that so much because I wanNA have really vulnerable conversations about humanity with people. I want to investigate those things I I wanNA share about things that I'm learning also to kind of undo that horrible two dimensional projection of social media which makes everybody feel like anyone anyone in the public eye. has their life figured out. It's like news flash. None of us know. Nobody knows what they're doing. The most successful people in the world will admit that they feel like tomorrow's. GonNa be the day where everyone finds out. They don't know what they're doing right and I love. I love hearing Oprah say that no matter who she ever interviewed at the end of the interview when the cameras would stop they would lean toward her and go did I do okay from presidents to beyond say everyone just wants to know that they did okay yeah yeah and and it is tricky when you when you really wanNA share but then how much do you share and what do you keep private head and and I think especially for us it's women. You know. I haven't done this yet but you have. When you become a mom. You can only hide that for so long. The world is GONNA know. You're pregnant. They're gonNA know you had a baby. How do you how do you set boundaries around? What you share about the family people know you have and I just I imagine it's very complicated yeah it. Is I mean I. I'm not like a huge celebrity so oh I think I I I in and maybe I'm being naive because I probably share more than he should 'cause. I became apparent when I was a little bit older so it's like every little thing that my kids do like. I WanNa just I'm just so proud of it and excited but at the same time I do think that there are there dangers rangers to that and on the one hand while I think as a culture we we are sharing so much we also are are are conveying. You know and I think everyone does this right that things like I think our social media L. Life is the life that we want people to see that we live right and I actually wish that people would be more vulnerable and and I and I mean there are few.

"This path is just that already people are feelings thinks young people are feeling less empathy or the inability to to be empathetic than ever before because they they're numbing themselves with breath video games or you know or whatever whatever drugs that they choose to to pursue and I WANNA WANNA get on it. I want to sort of ignite this quest for people to really start feeling yes because I just can't can't I can't convey more strongly how important it is to be able to do. Yes we remember when we were kids and we would call. We get so excited about calling in a boise a or you know that that all of that doesn't even happen anymore and when you finally get on the phone you'd have to actually speak and communicate like that. Just doesn't doesn't happen and it's it's again. It's like picking away at at feeling yeah and being able to experience the full range of your emotions. ooh ooh yeah. I know we're going now aw going in a lot of directions here and I and I love it and I think I think you have such a unique perspective also on how aw these new experiences are shaping and shifting culture because you've been investigating it for as long as you have and when you talk about out being twenty one and being out on assignment for Channel One and going to places like Afghanistan you did that and we're able to dive into those communities and come home and metabolize what you saw and talk about the feeling and talk about the political reality and you could could really pontificate on geopolitical issues and human issues in a way that in my memory felt more grounded did and more informative you know prior to the bush-cheney era. You couldn't have partisan news. You just couldn't have that. The news was presented as fact right first and then people could come on to debate to talk about different sides of policy but there was never the ability for news organization to judge the facts before presenting them yeah. It's it's really it's really unfair to call news or at least broadcast news because it's just it's it's now just straight opinion and well and it feels like a cage match when I watch the news. I feel like I'm watching. ESPN yeah. I don't feel like I'm watching news it. It's been and designed to feel export again. When was the last time you were out with people right embedded in communities and yet somehow for some reason you've been given this really precious position to kind of spew your opinion for for the masses masses to absorb into envelope as fact and yeah I just for me. I think the reason why I feel so emphatic about about this kind of work is again just I don't I I spend equal amount of time in my home but also just in the world with people who I ah in my wildest dreams I never imagined I'd be hanging out with or spending time with having dinner with but I develop a relationship with those people as a result that is so unique and important and I feel a responsibility to tell their stories accurately and I just I think we all need to do that more. Yes just travelling to. We don't even have to leave our own country to feel like we're in another foreign territory. Yes you know if we just traveled to the middle of the country and vice versa and you and so many of the great thinkers have that that experience you know you talk about your travel your channel on Co worker Anderson Cooper travels. I think about Gloria Steinem writing on the road. I think about even John Steinbeck. I'm back you know one of my favorite authors excellent who had this awakening in his later life realizing he'd become this famous writer on America and it had been so long since he'd been in America and he got a camper for his truck and through his dog in the back and kissed his wife Goodbye and said I gotta go explore in his sixties road trip around America again to go to tiny towns and campsites and just be with people and it's so oh crucial that if we're going to write about experience if we're going to advocate for people if we're going to make plans ends for people that we.

"Reality that two things can be true at the same time that people need spaces where their identity and he can be recognized and that we need to recognize that we all are part of one larger identity and I always like to ask people when we get started about who they were as kids in united just delve right into everything that we got her brain is so good but it but it does make make me curious because I wanna know about who you were as a child. I know you as this brilliant and an observation aw nuanced soulful human and I wonder if you were all of those things when you are seven or eight and when we talk about the person. We talk about identity though I wonder what your experience dance also is as a Chinese American and as a woman you because your culture is important and there there's also the reality of your culture and then the desire to assimilate and in a way I would imagine there are lessons from your childhood apply to this conundrum of how do we recognize that we're all the same and how do we how do we hold onto who we are in the ways that we are different different and and to our culture into our heritage because that's important too absolutely and I and I when I really think back on it. I do think that the conflict that I you felt or experienced as a young seven year old has everything to do with how I see the world or how I envision the world that I want to live in I grew up in northern California outside of Sacramento in a very non diverse community and we didn't have a lot of money. My parents divorced when I was seven and I always felt conflicted about my identity because I it didn't feel totally American because my house always smelled like Chinese food and I obviously look different than all of my friends and I was reminded of was the fact that I look different from them all the time and how does that present when you're a little kid. Oh where do those reminders come from. Oh I mean I was. I was teased a lot. It wasn't malicious but because I look different and kids our kids you know I was called you know Reza Ring was my nickname and kids would constantly kind of come up to me and and you know make these sounds like wall ring and you know stuff like that again. It wasn't delicious. They were just being kids but when you when you grow up kind of experiencing those things and really loathing how with that felt I think it Kinda drives you in a certain way but I didn't feel entirely American because I didn't look like my friends and I didn't feel Chinese because ultimately I didn't know the first thing about being Chinese because I was American I was born in California and whenever I was with people who were from any part of Asia just could could not relate at all and so I I grew up. I I remember that that that would conflict is sort of the the the the definitive word word of to to describe my childhood because I just didn't. I didn't know where I belonged and I- i- I longed for that tribe to and I just I didn't have that. Was that something you could talk to your parents about. Could you ask them about their experiences before they immigrated here now as a kid did. I just didn't really have point the language yeah and again. My parents were divorced when I was seven and my mom moved to Los Angeles and even even though she was still part of our lives when I say we I'm including my sister in this conversation who was four when my parents divorced she. She definitely wasn't a regular part. She wasn't part of the day to day and my dad worked all the time so my grandmother a Whiz with us and and she was a very educated woman but also a very strong evangelical and so the Bible was a big part of our our childhood hood singing hymns was a big part of our childhood in fact on Halloween night. My grandmother would make us turn out all the lights and sing sing hymns to drown out all of the all the trick or treaters. I it was that it was that hard core. You never got to get candy. I mean we snuck out got a couple of times. I did it when she when she got older and when we got older she started to she she. She became pretty senile at a certain point but yeah that's that's. That's the world that that I grew up in so very on the one hand very closed minded on so many levels but also with this with this real conflict you not knowing where I where I where I belonged and so I started working on television. When I was young I auditioned for a teen in magazines show when I was sixteen and I mean how shows in how how do I find out about this. How does this kind of like that before. A speech teacher told the class about auditions at a local mall for a teen magazine show that that might eventually become syndicated and so I showed up audition and I was chosen as one of the four hosts set of about five hundred kids showed up and auditioned and that gave me an opportunity to uh intern in the newsroom because it was produced by a local news affiliate but it wasn't until I turned eighteen that I addition for another show called Channel One news which is seen in schools across the country purportedly by about eight and a half million students every day Anderson Cooper who was on who's on CNN was one of my colleagues. The the idea was to bring on these young looking correspondence. We were Kinda like nine to ano before nine hundred eleven to report news for a high school audience audience so we they wanted these young looking reporters kids that felt like just the age group above the viewers exactly exactly and having never traveled because we didn't have the resources to do so it was the most incredible eye opening illuminating experience because it exposed me to the world in such a profound way you know it wasn't visiting tourist attractions. I was reporting on the Russian referendum elections or the civil war in Afghanistan or stories about globalization in China in India. I did this in my late teens and early twenties travelling to these places as part of Channel One while I was in college at USC and so I- eventually eventually dropped out because I felt like I was acquiring a graduate school education in my travels but it was that experience at channel. One that propelled held me to want to communicate what I was seeing to a bigger audience wow so I wanna get more into channel. One but I have a question about this sort of interim time. Yeah you're between this childhood. where you're growing up as you said in an close minded household old and then you go out to become a news reporter which requires curiosity inexpensive thought and I wonder about how you round up there. Were were you very curious about these systems. You were living in about community about about family. Were were you asking a lot of questions. Let's say from eight to fifteen. How did that spark for you so I have always had an insatiable curiosity but it really. I don't believe I started really asking those questions until later now what happened for me in my late teens and early twenties when I started getting just exposed to the rest of the world I mean I was twenty one years old when I went to the front lines of the civil war in Afghanistan and had a ten year old boy point a a an RPG at me and so you know those are those are experiences that you just can't erase right and so I realized after experiencing so many of these things that this is where I just felt like I was. I was kind of thriving in those kinds of environments. I felt more alive and that's something that I I continue to really relish about what I'm able to do whether it's going to Afghanistan or going and spending time with a community that is just completely different from my own in in Wichita rain. I feel alive. My senses are heightened and in in our country today in the world really really we are trying not to feel. We're afraid of feeling you know if we're feeling scared if we're feeling anxiety for feeling uneasy. There's a pill for that. Let's just let's just medicate you so you don't have to feel and and for me my whole life. It's just been the opposite. It's when I'm when I'm in environments that are unfamiliar to me like I just I love how that feels and and it's not always that I feel good or that. I feel excited. Sometimes I'm horrified by the conditions around me. Sometimes I can't extend the food that that that's being given to me. Sometimes my heart just feels like you know it's it's it's being torn out of my body body but it's so important to feel those things and I think we've kind of gotten away from that or or somehow we are uh afraid of of of feeling and I think it's really unfortunate because it's really that that's really driven me yeah. ACA identify with that so much approach in all the traveling of chosen to do in the communities I've chosen to visit and the the places that I always want to go and I'm advocating advocating for something. I want to go and see it myself. I want to talk to the people there myself because it feels necessary to bear witness to use my platform in the most respectable and authentic accurate way to talk to a larger audience that I have the privilege of talking to about these things happening in the world and I as you talk about how it makes you feel alive whether good or bad in the feeling you're experiencing. I really I get that and when I when we first started talking when I said that social media and these devices his have turned it all upside down there is nothing that compares to what you can access us on your device. Nothing no landscape no no experience because we are so just like we are so so over stimulated we are so we can access anything our brains just they were built to process all of this and so oh think increasingly people are are feeling less and less because they are are so embroiled and in their social world in the world of social media and people aren't going out and having those experiences because they don't feel like they need to. Oh but yet they feel like they have a platform though to be able to kind of pontificate about you know what have you and it's it's. It's it's it's it's kind of just an unprecedented period that we're living in in that regard it's wild it is under so curious about where we where we go and you and I are talking about this virtual reality so that people don't even have to travel they can just sit on their couches and in and get exposed to different parts of the world or whatever they WANNA do sexually you know and it's but then we're missing it. We're Messiah experience absolutely saying the people that you run into the street food. You wind up eating the conversation you end up having the the wrong. Turn you take leads you somewhere. You weren't expecting to go it. It's it's the connectivity and and really I think the magic that goes away the more renew the world through a screen absolutely I mean just the spontaneity of life and again those feelings that you can only get when you don't know what's going to happen and my fear is we kind of progress along..

"Your actions are the precursors to your results and your results are the precursors to the reality that you are experiencing. It all starts with the seed of belief. That's where this takes place. So in order to stop playing small we have to address those beliefs. All right. We gotta look at those beliefs. And so when understanding the power of our beliefs our belief, so the only thing that could potentially be holding us down because the number one driving force of the human psyche is to stake in. Bruant with the ideas that it has of it self. So if you whatever you believe yourself to be all of your actions, all of your thoughts are going to be congruent with who you believe yourself to be. So if you see yourself as a person who's always late, you see your self as a person who always struggles, academically, you see yourself as a person who always fails in business. You see yourself as a person who has bad luck in relationships or who struggles with their diet. If that's what you believe yourself to be everything in your life is going to be something that is going to support that belief everything about who's gonna drive you to find evidence to support your belief. Okay. And so with that said, this is why we need to get in there. Get in there and start to pull out those weeds and change those beliefs and we've got episodes of the show, we talk more about this.
