Liz Cheney Is Now Abraham Lincoln
"We should probably, though, give Liz Cheney a chance to offer her thoughts on this. So let's go to cut number 16 and listen to Liz Cheney explain why she did what she did. The great and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all. Lincoln ultimately prevailed, he saved our union, and he defined our obligation as Americans for all of history. Speaking at Gettysburg, of the great task, remaining before us, Lincoln said, that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from this earth.
The True Purpose for the Trump Raid
"I know a lot of people are excited when they hear your accent 'cause you're just so very unique, but your take on these things. I listen to your show just what was yesterday. I listened to your show before I went on and I thought you did a tremendous job you had a guest on and you guys were explaining all the nuances of what's going on with president Trump in this FBI raid that I think is a complete force. But let my audience know Sebastian, what you think about the raid and president Trump's personal home and what does this mean on a political scale from a political perspective? Well, first things first, every president has a legacy clearance, even if you leave The White House, you maintain the top clearance till the day you die, Jimmy Carter who hasn't been president for 50 years. He still has a top secret SCI highest level Q clearance. That applies to president Trump. So there's no question he's authorized to read any classified information. He wishes to read. Secondly, the president's records act the presidential records act has no criminal aspect to it. Many presidents since the act was created after Nixon left office have had lengthy arguments with the government as to what is their personal property and what has to go into an archive. And that is a function of negotiations between U.S. lawyers and the lawyers of the president's estate Nixon, but Nixon it took over 20 years for those negotiations to finally bring fruition. You don't read somebody's private residence with armed federal officers.
Caller Shares Intel in Following One America News & RSBN
"Were asking where we get our news from. So on April 6th, when direct TV quick carrion, one American news network, I quit carrying them. And for 5 bucks a month, you can stream them on any device. You have, and I also like to mention that they had this little app as you can put on your phone called OAN audio, which is free, and you can listen. To broadcasting over their guests now. It's Internet. It used to be satellite, but now it's Internet. So one American news network and another one called RSV, right side broadcasting and they also, they cover all the Trump rally. He's start to finish. Is there not they don't broadcast live all day long, but you can go back and watch a lot of different news programs and Trump rallies and things like that. And they're available. Both of them are available over the Roku, I guess fire stick to. I don't know how that works. But anyway, that's where I get mine from.
Will Merrick Garland Listen to President Trump?
"Well, I will say this, if they indict, this president, they will they will see mayhem. They will see true mayhem in America. Because I suspect if, in fact, they indict president Trump, there's no way anybody's going to be able to stop the maga bomb. I don't think anybody's going to be able to do it. And president Trump understands this. That's why he's going out there and he gave the interview with Fox News and saying, hey, look, you know, somebody needs to turn down the temperature here. What can I do to help? And that was the message he conveyed to the attorney general Merrick Garland. I hope that the attorney general listens. Because people are raging, they are seething. And that they see exactly what the federal government is doing here. I mean folks. It is based on what happened yesterday with the Justice Department. I am of the opinion that this entire thing is a farce. And the only thing that needs to happen is for the attorney general to resign and shame. Very clear to me, based on the behavior of the Justice Department, that it is time for the attorney general to go. But I'm not sure the Democrats are going to let that happen. And you want to know why? I'm going to tell you why. Because if they do, Trump wins. That's why Trump wins.
Los Angeles, You're Getting Everything You Deserve
"It's done. They're not going to recall George gascon. So Los Angeles, you get everything you deserve. The soaring crime, the epic homicide rates, the fear that everybody has, guess what? You deserve it all. If you're too stupid to dismiss these radicalized George Soros funded prosecutors, then you deserve it. I'm sorry, and I know there's a lot of good and decent and normal people in California. I'm not trying to condemn everybody. How hard should it have been to get enough signatures to put it on the ballot to fire George gascon? So, listen, victory is not assured in this great country of ours. You can make the case that California is a lost cause. And perhaps you'd be right. But ultimately, ultimately, take you must take nothing for granted.
Gov. Ron DeSantis: November 8th Is the Day We Fight Back
"We must get the country back and November 8th, 2022 is coming. Listen to governor Ron DeSantis this week here in the great free state of Florida. Well, from the beaches of Florida to the deserts of Arizona, November 8th, 2022 is going to be the day that America fights back. We're going to be fighting back against Joe Biden's failed leadership. We're going to be fighting back against lockdown politicians all over this country who ruin people's lives. And we're going to be fighting back against a failed Congress, which will result in the retirement of Nancy Pelosi.

Do Democrats Think We're Stupid?
"Here's my question. And it's like the eternal question that I deal with whenever I guess I was here on the Hugh Hewitt radio program. Are they stupid or do they think we are stupid? Let's see what Dana milbank thinks because he's right up that alley. Cut 15. Look, this has been a horrific week in the sense of the threat to the rule of law. I mean, Republicans with their violent talk, actual violence have lit a bonfire in a threat of the rule of law. Earlier, governor Hogan was saying he thinks this week was a win for Donald Trump. I think it's exactly the opposite. We can talk about them motivating Donald Trump's base. Guess what? They were already motivated. But what's happening now is they are putting Donald Trump on the ballot. Because of the way the Republicans have all grasped around him the way they're going to knock out 9 of ten of the House Republicans who voted for impeachment because of the dogs. And I can't listen to this idiot anymore. First of all, it is a tragedy that we've knocked out 9 of ten Republicans who vote for impeachment. We need to make a ten of ten.
Kash Patel: No Surprise John Carlin, Lisa Monaco Are Top DOJ Officials
"Minute I heard cash Patel say these two names this weekend on Maria bartiromo I knew I knew I'm like deep state back again Here we go He also mentioned something about these Russia gate documents too which was fascinating I want you to check this out This is cash Patel on Maria bartiromo this weekend Take a listen You know me as a former national security prosecutor in the national security division where this case is being run out of It's no surprise that the likes of John Carlin who was the assistant attorney general for national security who authorized a russiagate hoax to begin with is now the number three official at DoJ and Lisa Monaco is the number two official who was his superior back then These folks and this is the thing I want to stress with Now that this is a quote unquote ongoing FBI counterintelligence investigation they will come out to the American public and be able to say ongoing CI investigation you will never be allowed to see the Russia gate docs or any other docs at president Trump Lawfully declassified and they will hide it from the public and Congress as a monumental lift ahead of them come November They better start subpoenaing these documents immediately and putting these people before the American public Wait wait wait time out TO baby TO You're telling me the same people involved in spygate From the Obama Biden administration and the Department of Justice there Are the exact same people now raiding Donald Trump's house
Did Fargo, ND Schools Vote to Ban the Pledge of Allegiance?
"That in Fargo North Dakota. They are no longer doing the Pledge of Allegiance. I then sent that to my friend and he said that his fake news, there's no way that's happening in America and told me to stop sending things that are not true. Please help me Charlie make sense of this. Is it really true? They're no longer doing it. Yes, it is. So in Fargo North Dakota, almost hard to grasp and believe at a board of educators meeting the board of education voted to remove the Pledge of Allegiance because of the under God phrase, in fact, they said that it no longer reflects their values. Fargo public schools voted 7 to two to no longer recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Pledge of Allegiance at the Fargo school board will no longer be said. The debate goes back to February when a motion to have the pledge recited at meetings brought forward by board member David Paulson. Past 7 to two. Now, I'll be very honest, the turnout for school board elections in Fargo, this last cycle in June was miserably low. Unfortunately, in North Dakota, I know a lot of you listening in North Dakota will be the exception to this, but I'll just be honest, it is not a priority to the vast majority of citizens in North Dakota.
Coach Chan Gailey on the Current State of College Football
"I want you to just sort of candidate because, you know, if you listen to sports radio, you listen to the college. There's a lot going on right now in college football and from your time coaching there. It's changed having a channel with an introduction to the name image and likeness with the introduction is portal situation. Is there a concern and we'll get into the specifics of both those. But I just want to ask a general question. Is there a concern that all of a sudden with some of these issues and the NCA not doing anything to really rein it in right now that in some ways in the college football is becoming a minor league and I'm not saying it's a minor league, but there's this sort of idea that it's more like a pro kind of ball because of what we're seeing with this. Well, yeah. I mean, it's been taken for granted for years that college football is the NFL's minor league system. But there was somebody else controlling it that had some idea about, okay, let's keep the character part involved. Let's keep the education part involved. Let's not let these guys feel like they're just straight semi pro guys, but in the last few years, we have taken this thing Doug to it it's full blown semi pro. We're paying the guys. Some are more make more, to be honest with you. Some of them will make more in college than they will in the NFL because you're guessing you're paying these guys and guess and what they're going to be worth. And that is the tough situation for colleges right now.
Eric Welcomes Jerome Corsi to the Show
"Sitting here with me, Jerome corsi. If you listen to this program, you remember that we've had Jerome corsi on this program in the past. I hardly know where to begin. So I will simply say, welcome back. A great pleasure to be back with you, Eric. Thank you. I look, I want my audience to understand what we're dealing with here. So first of all, you have written many, many big bestselling books to New York Times number one bestsellers. You were the reason you were on this program the last time, you were grievously persecuted through the Mueller investigation. They put you through hell, we talked about that when you were on the program last time. We're living in dark times. What happened the other day in Mar-a-Lago is just the latest example of it. So I want to talk to you about your new book. But give us an update on everything that has happened. I mean, there's so much evil every day, every week, every month that you can't remember what happened a year ago, what happened two years ago. I mean, the Mueller investigation, I forgot about that because so much else has happened. Well, first of all, it's a great pleasure to be back with you. When I was here last, I thought I was going to prison. And it was your shows. I think made a huge impact. And I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I'm astonished in thrilled and thankful to God that that might be the case. Well, I think my faith got me through and I deeply appreciate your program. We need more Christian programming. My faith was really the bedrock of what I would not lie to give the mule or people what they wanted to keep Trump out of prison. And they wanted me basically to affirm the Russian collusion theory, which I knew to be nonsense and did not have a part in. I thought had ties to Julian Assange. It goes on and on. I wrote a book about it, silent, no more. So
Why You Should Fight 'Social-Emotional Learning' (SEL)
"James, a lot of parents here and watching online and listening for the rebroadcast. They hear these terms social emotional learning. It sounds so unassuming. What should the response be if they find out their kid or their school district is pushing social emotional learning? You've got to fight that. I would tell you that you need to understand and I've spoken to moms for liberty conference recently in front of all these moms, hundreds of moms. And I said, you know, what I want you to come home from this with, is this idea. If you knew, and I mean this, this is what social emotional learning really is and I'm skipping a few details to get to it, but if you knew you were sending your kids to a Maoist re-education prison for 35 hours a week, what would you do differently in your life? Because that is actually what it is. I read the books about Maoist thought reform, written by psychologists who studied people that were coming to Hong Kong fresh out of exile from China fresh out of Mao's prisons where they were indoctrinated into Maoist communism, and it's exactly the same program. So social emotional learning, if your kids, if it's happening, you have to fight it, I would tell you you need to protect your kids. If that means yanking them out of that school and guarding them, it means yanking them out of the school and taking whatever, extra steps you have to take to protect your children. It
Charlie Chats With Anonymous Genius “Kane” of Citizen Free Press
"I'm sure many of you have noticed in the last couple years how drudge report has just become a left wing rag. It's unreadable. I used to go to drudge all the time. I don't go anymore. There's a new website, though, that is surging in traffic. They do a wonderful job of aggregation and staying on top of the news. It is citizen free press dot com. They're I have to tell you traffic is unbelievable lately. And the man behind citizen free press is someone just called Kane. You could call him Citizen Kane. He stays anonymous so that the left doesn't screw with him and that he's able to continue to operate the website freely to give an idea. Susan free press had a 169 million page views in the month of July. That is more than Politico, The Wall Street Journal Huffington Post, NBC News, TMZ, CBS News Daily Beast, ABC News, and more. And the man behind citizen free press, who is just called Kane. He lives in Bloomington, Indiana, and moraine anonymous for many reasons, of which I fully support, joins us right now. Citizen Kane, who runs citizen free press, how are you? Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks, Charlie. Glad to be here. And yeah, I'll touch on that a little bit. Look, from day one, I wanted to avoid any interaction with David Brock and media manner. And it's only grown in the last 5 years since I've been running the site, so it helps to stay anonymous. And somehow I've been able to do it for 5 and a half years. No one has no one listening has ever recognized that photo. Those are the colonnade of Thomas Jefferson's lawn in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia. So that's actually a reunion photo. So I'm a graduate of the University of Virginia. And used to be a progress grad, but in the new woke UVA, not so proud.
The Government's Power Play
"I see what they're trying to do. I can't unsee it. I see that our government is untrustworthy. And that government officials that we once held at a high stature would now use the FBI against their political enemies. You can go out and put servers in your house and not go to jail. And you can conspire against a sitting president trying to create a coup within the FBI and you're not even getting in trouble. You could be Jeffrey Epstein with pedophile island and all of a sudden, 30 years later they catch you, and then nobody else has brought the justice. They could play every trial, the Parkland shooting, they could put the trial, listen to the testimony of the kids, but they won't show they won't tell you nothing happened in pedophile island. With mister I didn't kill myself.
Mark Levin: It Doesn't Matter What the Affidavit Says
"The affidavit is going to tell you what the government says to the court Now the reporters are sitting there because they're just going to mouth regurgitate burp up exactly what the government said Because that's what it is to be reported The government said that there was evidence for potential evidence that the information was being destroyed It wasn't being kept properly Oh my God So what if they say that What I'm trying to say backbenchers please listen take notes write it down It doesn't matter what the affidavit says It's just part of what the government wanted to do what the government is claiming That's all That's all Nobody is even asked the Trump people if they've seen the affidavit Do they see the affidavit There's a lot of people contacting them over there I'm just curious Do they know what's in the other David

"listening" Discussed on Recorded Future - Inside Threat Intelligence for Cyber Security
"Good morning and welcome to the committee will come to order. Last Wednesday, the House select committee on intelligence called a hearing. They wanted to talk about the proliferation of commercial spyware. You are now recognized for your opening remarks. My name is corinne cannonball. I am the youngest of 6 children. And Paul recessive egina. The name might ring a bell. Don Cheadle played him in the movie hotel Rwanda. My name is Paul rusesabagina. I am the house manager of the most luxurious hotel in the capital of Rwanda. The most luxurious hotel back then was mean Colleen. And it's famous because it's where more than 1200 Tutsi took refuge during the 1994 genocide. Outside the hotel walls, machete wielding militias killed some 800,000 rwandans in under a hundred days. Paul recessed by risked his life to make sure that the people taking shelter inside the hotel all survived. It is not like anything I've ever seen in 30 years as a reporter. It is, I think, the standard against which all future tragedies will be measured. Defiance during the genocide isn't exactly what brought careened Capitol Hill last week. It's what a father did years afterwards. My father was given a platform, and he used it for good. He was critical of the increasing violations of human rights of rwandans. In other words, he was critical of the government of Rwandan president Paul Kagame, and the fact that a world famous human rights ambassador like Karen's dad was openly criticizing the president, while that didn't sit well with authorities in Kigali. Eventually fled first to Belgium and then to the U.S., and that might have been the end of it, had it not been for an ill fated trip he took to East Africa. In August 2020, Kareem's dad boarded a chartered jet, he thought was taking him to Burundi. And it wasn't until the plane doors open, that he realized he had landed in Rwanda. He actually started to scream and thinking that perhaps the pilot would hear him scream very loudly and come out and help him. In fact, the pilot of the plane came out and wished him good luck as he was being dragged out of the plane. President Kagame has a long history of silencing his critics. When I was in Rwanda reporting for a book I was writing back in 2003, I saw soldiers break up campaign rallies for the opposition, political opponents talked about constant death threats. Kagame's critics had this way of disappearing. So having recess a buggy suddenly find himself rendered back to Rwanda, it was part of a much larger pattern. After a very short trial, the government sentenced him to 25 years in prison. In Korean started a very public global campaign to get him released. Which appears to have made her a target too. Though in her case, instead of an elaborate kidnapping, she found herself on the receiving end of a state of the art threat. A kind of spyware called penises. Everyone in my house at home, when they come into our home, they're so worried about Pegasus now that we just put everyone's phones into microwave, I don't know why it makes people feel safer, but it does. It's the brainchild of an Israeli company called NSO group, and it has this uncanny ability to turn any phone into a spy. It can be turned on remotely to secretly listen to all your conversations, read all your texts and track exactly where you are. Korean now a U.S. citizen testified on Capitol Hill about that. She's living proof of an increasing threat to the world, commercial spyware. Now you no longer need an intelligence service to do sophisticated surveillance. You just need the money to pay for it. We are looking at a slide back towards autocracy and authoritarianism around the world. And in my mind, spiral like Pegasus is kerosene to the flame. I'm Dina temple rest, and this is click here. A podcast about all things cyber and intelligence. Today, Korean story, the commercial spyware business, and what it all means for a company at the center of it all, NSO. Stay with us. I'm Gregory Warner, hosted the podcast rough translation on our new season. We're telling stories about the cultures of work. The 9 to 5. It's a myth and rest around the world. I came into this totally prepared to defend my American productivity. At work, the new season of the NPR podcast rough translation. Every year the human rights foundation has a big conference called the Oslo freedom forum. Think of it as a kind of human rights festival, a chance for people who want to overthrow tyrannies to meet people who already have. That's basically how they advertise it on YouTube. Let us rise up against Iran. We want a world where people can speak freely. Today, I would like you to join the cast and I want you to join our revolution. And earlier this year, a cybersecurity watchdog group set up a booth at a conference. And instead of handing out stickers and tote bags, they offered an unusual service. A free check of your phone for spyware. It's never pleasant to receive news that you've been hacked. It's like receiving bad diagnosis. John Scott railton is a senior researcher at citizen lab at the university of Toronto, and he was one of the people at that booth. So we have developed approaches that allow us to do fairly rapid checks of devices without invading the person's privacy too much. Okay, so you kind of have the rapid COVID test of Pegasus? That's exactly how we describe it. And then if we find something of interest, then we're going to go do the PCR. And when Jon did the PCR test on careens phone, it came back positive. This was shocking, of course, because I need thought that American numbers could now be targeted. The NSO group has had publicly that it doesn't track U.S. phone numbers, but traces of spyware appeared on Korean U.S. phone anyway, and it had been there for a while. The discovery that he had actually been infected in September of 2020. So that is just about a month after my father had been kidnapped. I think it was a confirmation of something that she had suspected, which was they were even more intensely targeted than they already knew. Karina shared the Rwandan government has put NSO's Pegasus by where on her vote. Do we know for a fact that the kagami government is a client of NSO? This is a really good question. I think we know a lot of reporting around this case. We certainly see strong circumstantial evidence pointing in this direction. Obviously, the government has denied it. But it's par for the course that governments typically deny that their customers are this kind of technology. Which is exactly what the Rwandan government did. I would like also to make a comment on recent interrogations against Rwanda. That's Rwanda's minister of foreign
"listening" Discussed on The Media Show
"Hello. There have been some nervy cross fingers in the media world. After a long 18 months, we finally found out who is listening to what, on the radio. So what did we learn from the first audience data since the pandemic began, with many of us working from home, have breakfast shows and drive time favorites taken a hit, and how has broadcast radio done against the Giants of Silicon Valley with their wealth funded podcast? Well, let me introduce you to today's guests, dick stone is chief content officer at Jack media. Dick for our audiences that don't know what is Jack media. Good afternoon, yes, also Jack meeting group is one of the very few remaining completely independent radio groups in the UK. So we operate 6 radio stations. There's three national radio stations union Jack. You need dance and union Jack rock. Both of which those latter two, we launched during the pandemic. And then three stations operating in the Oxfordshire area, so Jack FM, which was the first Jack station in the UK, a format, which originally started in North America. Jack two hits and Jack three in chill. So those are the 6 services that we operate at the beginning of pandemic. There was only four, and now they're 6. So you've done well. You've expanded and will come onto chat to you a bit later on about that, but also joining us today is Matt deegan creative director at folder media. Matt, you advise audio companies on their strategy. Has this last week been a bit like a level results for you? Absolutely. It's always like that when any figures come in, it's nice that everybody wants to judge themselves against their peers as well as seeing how they get on. We haven't had any rage on data. This is the audience data in the UK for 18 months. Because of the way it's collected and the pandemic got in the way of that. So there's lots of stations that have been waiting for these numbers, especially some new launches. That would definitely keen to work out if anybody was out there. Also with us is Miranda Sawyer radio critic at the observer. Miranda, do you feel that you have to review the programs with the biggest audience? Absolutely not, actually. That's a bit like there are some programs that are absolutely matter. I mean, the biggest podcast in the world is Joe Rogan and I feel absolutely no compunction to review that at all. How much more interested in new and interesting and sometimes I go back to kind of very long established radio shows to see how they're doing. That's got a new presenter. But I think that especially with long-standing radio programs, they kind of tick along. And if I was to go back and review them every week, everyone would just be like, what's the point of that really? Yeah, fair enough. Ashley Carmen is senior reporter at the verge and lead writer at hot pod. So actually, there's no official audience data for podcasts, so how do you know what's doing well and what's not then? Oh my gosh, on a show by show level, it is difficult..

"Whatever sacrifice minor sacrifice we made. It was worth it because it who could have known that that movie would have been in theaters for that long and get us that much positive press it was. It would have been a much different story. Eventually description would be commonplace in movie theaters. But it would've taken probably another year or more for us to sort of advance the cause In that movie really helped us out. How sorry it's just such. It says an incredible feeling to to be sitting across from someone who who made your childhood basically just the hours the hours i spent watching.

"With open captions as we call them. Was julia child. The french chef white sauce base with yours twenty years later in the early nineties w. h. applied for a grant to essentially do a similar service for people who are blind or have low vision and that was descriptive video service. They started with adult program in case john. Thank you myself like three dramas documentaries but by the time. Brian came to w gbh years later.

Arthur it's called the descriptive video service. It's for people who are blind so they can watch. Tv use the remote to choose the sap. Then a voice comes on the tv show to tell you what's happening whenever arthur would come on. I'd run to the television and be transfixed for half an hour. The little girl turns into a crap. Because i knew exactly what was happening funny. My parents weren't very good at describing but these professional describes knew what they were doing. I could trust. I felt in the know and at home like these describes we're talking directly to me. Check it for yourself. On arthur and other. Pbs kids throw band so the the process of description. Maybe i should talk a little bit about that. Tends to be you'll watch the whole program. I normally i would never suggest a harebrained scheme like this. But i think we should follow him so as you can imagine the process they developed at. Wbz h is a little different from what my friend benz. You went inside. You sometimes watch scenes for a long time for many many times. Normally i would never suggest normally okay. Scratch that very different. So you need to in some ways map out in a scene. Say it's a five minute scene. You can think of all kinds of ways to describe it but that's not worth anything until you know how many seconds and when there may be a pause so you could actually describe something you know if it's a new scene with new characters in a new place you need to set the stage. I what was that and sometimes there's only one second you can only say later or at night. Sunlight cross the earth surface as rotates in the milky way. Giant gold letters revolve around the planet spelling universal by the late nineties. Wbz started to expand video description from television to movie. Mardi runs down the fire trails toward him so We developed in an entire business of selling vhs tapes with description on them. He faints and falls to the ground. Arthur was great but the vhs tapes were total game changer. Flag waves on top of castles. Thomas spire when i was five. My mom brought one home from the local libraries. It was the lion king now. In a cartoon giant yellow sun rises into a golden sky. It lights up a huge savannah a flat grassland that stretches as far as the great thing about those matthew. I don't know if you've ever experienced those is that you just put it in the vcr and it plays and has description on it. Don't have to do anything. No menus long no settings just press play. They fly over a waterfall which tumbles over a cliff as tall as a skyscraper..

"When i was four or five i would go over to my grandparents house on weekends. I'd sit very close to the television practically with my ear to the speaker. I'd watched shows like spongebob rocket power. Rex solid goodhew. The only reason i watch them was because of the commercial. Your sanford venture a new lego dino island team up with johnny under study that those commercials where like a window into the site at world and now i can make my own magic mcmil. Legible pizza changes color. They'd tell me about the latest lunch. -able legacy or transformer and forms of the evil galvez. Ron what did how much it costs. And yes actual gene figure awful.

There wasn't much go. But what i didn't realize kid was that i was born a kind of a historic moment for blind people. When movies and television. I started using something called video description back when we first got going in the early nineties. There was probably one or two hours a week at most of described programming. It's an incredible story. And one which i only learned recently. We even had a telephone guide where you could call our special phone number and you would hear what was being broadcast with description that week and i heard it from bryan gould here at the national center for accessible media Okay well what are we doing other that.

Tv and get paid for it with a video describing essentially narrates the action on screen for people who are blind or have low vision this allows them to follow along with the story without seeing the screen. Another commonly used term for this is audio descriptions now back in the nineties. When brian took that job this was a pretty new concept. But over the next twenty. Five years brian would have a huge impact on the world of video description. And what really changed. Everything was when he worked on the descriptions for one of the biggest movies of all time.

"Break to thank lauren gallagher. Thank you laurin. We think more in at the end of every episode. Because lauren did all the design work for our show. Oliver logos like put together color schemes. And it was just a really wonderful working relationship to have with lauren. Over years in her work is still so good in so incredible. And i you should tire lauren. Honestly you should hire everybody that we're talking about on this. Show laurie so so talented. And i remember. I remember lauren showing a when she was interviewing for a job she. She showed a powerpoint about pokemon or neo pets. It was one of those two things and from that moment. I was like this person knows who she is. And i'm fucking bored with that f- love it so capitalism Jen i totally agree with you. The whole point of capitalism is to have this this this stratum of humanity. And in like in. Now you are in you. You've been bumped up buddy great work. Well it fucking sucks there too. But i like the attitude that you have a lot and i think that will serve you well and i think that going in this with the attitude of i'm here to help is good so true. What a nice a nice thing that you that you've have gotten the bill you've gotten a little extra cash in your pocket and your instinct is to give it to the people around you so long that yeah. I five next question. Yeah think you're up my best gal friend. This is the she her asker and her boyfriend recently broke up. I want to be there for her and support her one hundred percent but i have this sense that she wants me to fill both roles best friend and significant other had never known her while she was single because she was in a different long-term relationship when we met and then she headed into this last one pretty soon after that so i don't know if this is what she generally expects of friends. This didn't happen. After that previous break-up though i feel like she's asking me to take responsibility for some pretty huge intimate things in her life that are generally on a family member or significant other scale and on short notice by saying things like i was wondering if you could do x. for me by tomorrow because i can't ask why since we broke up and now i'm single. Wow you say holy shit. I know plenty of best friendships. Do have that dynamic but we don't. I tried to explain the change in my role. That i noticed and how i'd like to be there for her as a best friend and how it makes me uncomfortable. The suddenly be so responsible for life like this saying that made me feel really guilty. Plus i haven't heard from her for awhile which is unusual enough for us that. I'm pretty sure our friendship might be in the process of ending. Should i have expected this. Should i have gone about this differently. Am i a bad friend man. Everybody wants to know if there are bad friend and let me tell you something If you're trying real hard you can. You can be a bad fred. Sometimes you could fuck up. Sometimes i think you're just a friend person if you're asking in feeling guilt and worry you're probably not a bad friend. You're probably just a little lost. So i don't think you're a bad friend but something is definitely incongruent here and i don't think the problem issue i. I am really stunned by the phrase. I was wondering if you could do this for me buy tomorrow. Whoa okay was that also peppered with a ton of thank yous and please because whoa that is like something like a short like a kurt. Boss would save and politely to an employee. And that that is. It's rarely rubbing me the wrong way. Gotta say trend. And i do have deadlines for each other because we you know we've been working on this podcast other projects for years and we don't talk to each other that way. Never yeah like we literally do have things to do each other by tomorrow and we still don't say it like that. So yeah. I'm i'm a little put off find very questionable that it's weird that she's adding onto her asks. Oh i can't ask my ex because we broke up. And now i'm single. Like if she is adding that onto the asks then she i think purposefully or subconsciously is doing this. In in order to guilt you into into helping her whether that's at the forefront of her mind or not it is manipulative. It's very it's really une cool. And i know she must be in so much pain but this is still unfair treatment toward you. Jen and i are not privy to the conversation that you had with her. I think it is so amazing that you actually said something to her. Because usually we don't hear from people after they say something. I know good job yeah. I'm really proud and excited for you. And if it didn't go exactly how you want it. I hope it doesn't prevent you from shutting yourself starting your voice down in the future. Yeah i don't think. I don't think that your friendship is in the process of ending. I think that you might be in a place where neither of you really know what to do right now. Because it may be that she listened to what you said she heard you and she understood and now she's giving you the space that she believes that you need so i would say if it has been a while and neither of us have reached out. I think it would be very kind of you to not just say. Hey how are you but be like. Oh hey do you want to simultaneously watch a movie together like make a plan and have it be a friend thing not just a check in not just do you need anything but like hey i miss you and i like you..

Yeah i want to add to that too because savannah in soobee are like top of the list. Like for that for me like. They're just listened in knits. Very very kind of them in savannah will like when we announced they were ending. The show van was like. I'm sorry a friend but i'm happy for you and like as like feel and i also wanna thank carlin who i think i've talked about on like every other episode of this show and carlin doesn't listen to the show and i would never expect her to listen to the show because she's got way too much fucking going on and she may never hear this. Thank you but karlin has been a sensitivity reader. Her goodness and her effort has been honestly a guiding light in my life. And all i'm choking but like she genuinely strives everyday to be a better person and no herself better and forgive people who've heard her and it makes me press on when i want to give up and honestly the core of this show is what we've learned from our friends and these are the people that we've learned from o. So gross and feeling very much emotions. Your one stop it. Stop brain agreed agreed. Okay should i read this winter. Is it your turn my turn. I think as you now okay. Here we go another question. Capitalism is a big watch and makes friendship hard. I recently acquired some unexpected wealth. Nothing tremendous but still a big deal to me allows me to treat princeton. Nice things are pick-up tabs without worry. The downside is now. I just feel awkward all the time because i don't know social rules for treating people normal back and forth paying or it all comes out in the wash attitude isn't really necessary anymore but should i still stick with that anytime. Its activities that we all did pre windfall. How often is appropriate to treat friends and family without making either of us feel bad. I don't wanna think people hang out with me for financial perks. But i also like being able to share just really uncomfortable with wealth. Capitalism is gross. And i would appreciate any thoughts you have on this. I love the attitude that this listener has with money like absolutely like this. This is weird. I have a bunch of this. And i don't know what to do with it. I totally get it. And especially because like. I've had a rich fen friend in my life and you sometimes you just start to like expect them to pick up the tab right. I think that my first piece of advice would be to. It's it's the phrase pick your battles but like pick pick what you pay for so like picking coffee like counts on has no deals like pick it up whatever but if you are like i i love my friends and i want to show them. I loved them by sharing my wealth. I think actually would be more meaningful for you to do occasional bigger things than pick up habit in our every night. Oh yeah that's a soup. I like that idea trend that that will hit a little bit harder. It'll avoid some of this pattern that you're worried about forming and also like i mean if you want to pick up dinner every time go for it it would be great as your friends felt comfortable enough to tell you if this was making them uncomfortable but that can be very hard to do. So i would avoid the always picking up always treating. I think you can do that. But like here's an example. So if you know that a friend could use cash could use money. I mean. I think that it would be more meaningful for you to be like. Here's here's Here's rent never speak of this again. You know and then never never do it. You know like or i'm in. I have daydreams where. I'm like if i ever had some wild windfall that i don't even have no clue where the source of that would be. I would be like. I'm gonna then mobilia grant here you go. We'll talk about it again. Like the money is yours. And i kind of wanted to spread it around because that seems to be your your attitude here is that you're like i am uncomfortable with the amount i that i currently have spreading it around in a more targeted way might be helpful right. I mean your instinct is to feed the people around you in bring them some joy and make life a little easier for them good instinct. That's really lovely. I love that about you. You want your friends to have a good time. You want them to have. I mean i'm gonna editorialize here but a nice dinner out with friends is the number one thing that personally fills my cup so i think it's really nice. That's this is what you want to do for people but i also agree with trend. Like you couldn't use should be mindful about this. I would say you seem impatient to fix this problem. So like don't wait a little bit like don't feel like don't don't make any money decisions for the next five dinners you have and then maybe the six dinner is the one that you're like. Okay i'll pay for this one you know like like don't feel like you need to start dishing out money immediately you can. Your friends are going to be around for a long time. And you're going to share a lot of meals and no one else you could do as you could tie it to a bigger event like i wanna treat you for your birthday or i wanna treat you. You've had a rough week. Or i wanna treat you because were vaccinated and there's a patio and we can stay away from people safely. Do you wanna join me for that. Like you can tie it to a little bit of a more important event. That that's why i think those are a little easier to spend to mentally spend money on but also i don't know if you're ever gonna hundred percent solve this because capitalism is meant to be discomforting It's by design. There's no one in the planet has a one hundred percent healthy relationship with money like the that doesn't exist. So if you're looking for that you're never gonna find. I'm very sorry brief..
"listening" Discussed on Live Behind The Veil
"Welcome to live behind the veil. An atmosphere where men and women of god speak his word this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and is to see what god is doing in this hour. Let us join our host and the families conversation has the holy spirit is unfolding word behind the veil speak. It's real important to understand that during this this time that the revelation the word that's going to come is not necessarily going to be a rehearsal of what's in the scriptures. We are going to write the last chapters. The scripture also says behold i will do something new. Will you be aware you can't say enough about the scriptures without the scripture does a foundation. We're not going to go very far. But i think the lord is not restricted. And if he has a people who see him as not being restricted then he can say whatever he wants to say and then we move in whatever he's asking us to move in. Do we need half of the world to agree with us to do this. No not at all. It's going to be based on what he says. And our response to that. And i think you know. Unfortunately the babylonian system that has grown up with the church has tainted a lot of what the church believes. It's kinda twisted the word slightly. It's just like satan tempted eve hath god said well. Yeah god said well if it created a question in eve's minded than. He did his job in deceiving her when he spoke to christ the scripture says if you throw yourself off this precipice a ten thousand angels catcher. Yeah but don't tempt the larger god. He knew scripture. So well that when satan came to twist he knew better. And i think there's many of us reaching into this relationship with the lord right now to where that when when he speaks. Were listening we just wanna listen to whatever he might have to say and then as he speaks it we put an action to it. Here's my act of faith. Were attuned to listening to that voice that still small voice that tells us this is the way walkie in it. What you're saying. Alan illicit a reaction because he said could you quoted one of my favorite scriptures. This is the way walkie in it. And that's just like saying okay. Folks get ready for change. I'm not gonna let you sit where you are. you're not going to stagnate. You're not gonna die where you are. This is the way walk in it. If jesus war t shirt that would have been right across the front of it. This is the way walkie in it and he was saying. Come follow me. His whole ministry was creating sons and son ship. We're heading into more of god's creation a lot of what lies ahead. were not sure of. But it's coming by being led by the holy spirit day by day. Our walk with god is something we do every day when change comes. I don't think it's going to be all roses and flower gardens. Because that's not how god works. Everybody you talked to believes this is or very. Near the end of the age people are reacting in fear you find people who are losing their lives due to fear right. The heart attacks is representative of that. You have people all kinds of reactions. But people are coming to the lord in fear rather than faith. Yeah were coming to the end of an age all by that but more importantly were coming to the beginning of the next day and that is exciting. That's where our faith really reaches in and says god knows what he's doing. You know. God has a plan. He has not created this earth for it to be destroyed and it's time to look at the positive things that the lord is really doing. I have no doubt he's in control. And so i'm just excited are entering into new age. Like ed said yeah. We have a thousand years ahead of us while if we think of it in that respect today if you hear my voice don't harden your heart that means he's going to speak. Isn't that what you would perceive that to me. He's going to speak or he is speaking. Are we listening. Are we hearing then. Are we doing according to what he's speaking if we're doing to coordinate what he's speaking then he'll speak to us again because we didn't throw a deaf ear or we harden our heart thinking that can't be god god doesn't speak anymore and i know this group rate here. We open our hearts to hear what the spirit speaks today and this aid goddess created prophets in europe. And if you read through that it's really cool because they both god and his e you we're in the same place and that's been itself is an important fact easy. Cq was in the presence of the lord. So here's ezekiel a prophet in the presence of the lord and they're looking in this valley of dry bones. Now ezekiel being a prophet. He knows to wait on god. God speaks asked him a question. You know the story they billups agree that these are dry bones got us what what would we do with these. And you can read through the story. What how it turns out. God's tells physique he'll what to say and god created those valley of dry bones through a prophet that god had raised up any grey created any exceedingly great army if.

"Had felt what i would call kind of forced conviction. Those friday night can't moments or when. The pastor is specifically geared a sermon for specific sin but those definitely felt more judgmental and someone else condemning me rather than voice spirit moving and i will say those feel very differently and they affect your life separately so when when we prayed in class in the way that we did. How is that different than what you experienced and say some of these camp experiences one of the things you emphasize as you did give us a little background on how you were praying through things and one of the things you brought up was you said you didn't go through and interrogate the students and like get every detail of everything that was going on. You prayed to god. And they meditated on the problem and that brought about the resolution which was a completely new concept to me because most of the experiences i had whether it be camper a a youth group or even a pastor they would always want to know every little detail of my life and then pray through each piece specifically which i don't is necessarily a problem but there was something different about leaving room for god to work ad taking out of your hands as a person. Yeah so long term here. What do you think the long term effects then are how did that particular instance in that class. Did it change the way that you approach. God that the way that you walked out your spiritual life what would you say. Absolutely the first thing. That changed was the way i started praying for other people. I took the approach very literally. And i said to my friends. I'm like listen. I do not need names. I don't need to know what exactly is going on. I want you to tell me whatever you're comfortable with. And then we will let god work and we'll pray through it together that again had a radical effect on me because not only watched it work in your class by again someone who i respect but then i was.

Thanks so much for joining us kate. It's a pleasure to be here. Thank you for having me sure so. I can't wait to get started. Can you tell me first. A little about your background and how you became interested in writing about the topic and the interpersonal skill of listening. While i'm a longtime journalist. I've always been interested in listening. Just because that's really what i see is fundamental to the work that i do and on top of that i live in the same world that everyone else does where i've kind of noticed that listening is becoming something of a lost art and i wanted to find out why that was and also just as a journalist. I was noticing increasingly during interviews. That people would start telling me very intimate details about their lives and problems. They were having things wholly unrelated to the interview and this was happening with such regularity. And and i'm talking about pretty breathtaking disclosures people who were very accomplished had been bass network of friends and family and colleagues and i wondered why they were telling me and at the end of the conversation. They would always say thank you so much for listening and almost with the same breath they would say so. Sorry as if they had asked too much of a and that they weren't supposed to have someone listen to that. It was too much of a chore someone to listen to them and that really made me want to investigate this a little bit more. Why did people have so few people in their lives that they felt they could tell things to and also why it was seen as a shameful thing to ask them. What are too much to ask to have someone lesson. So that was really the genesis of it and Yeah boy what. A rapid halt led me down. Quiet there yeah. I imagined interesting. That people saw that as like a big ask big request..

That's something that i love to do. And so that's why. I would classify myself as a good listener. Do i advertise that. Not necessarily. I don't just go to me like hey. I really good listener. You seem like you're in pain. Let let me tell you. I'm a good listener. Take a seat. I don't. I don't do that but i enjoy it. I enjoy doing that. And i enjoy Letting letting people process and letting people letting people talk do with my roommate often that when you're an extra processor you just you. You have the talk of the talk things through. And so i right. I have to be when you know a friend or one of my roommates like does that. I have to sit and listen. I have to sit in. Because i wanna hear what they're saying and i have i need. I want to hear the where they're trying to get. But i'm not gonna offering any advice because that's not what they need in that moment. Sure they don't need that at all. They don't need me to say while. I understand that same thing has happened to me. No they they wanna get there. They want to get to their own end and letting them talk and letting them process. Let them get to their own end. So it's like recognizing that you don't have to assume what they need to be to offer about value to their story And so people come to you because they know that you're going to correct them. You're not going to try and fix their problem. You're just gonna sit them so giving your propensity to just be able to actually listen to people and not try to fix their.
"listening" Discussed on Talking Tech
"Are continuing our series on top consumer questions of the tech questions talking to my favorite reporters. My friend jeff. Fowler the tech columnist at the washington post is joining me today to talk about all those things that are listening to us so many people are wary whether it's the smart speaker whether it's the browser where it's the website. Jeff you get this question a lot to you. Not oh my god. It is one of the questions. I get the most often from readers from family from friends. Everybody assumes that in particular facebook is listening to them that it's out there and <hes>. You know hearing that they that they were thinking about getting pizza for dinner. And then the next thing you know there's a facebook ad for pizza <hes> so <hes> on everyone's mind also makes me think about our jobs as as tech columnists. Do you remember a time when most of what we spend our time doing was talking about what was cool. What was new. What new thing might make your life better. And i feel like there's just been this turn in the last five years of how much time we have to spend answering the question. How evil is this. And this question of is listening to me. Kind of like the best example. I think of the. How evil is it question. Well the facebook question people are adamant that facebook's listening in facebook itself is adamant but you could always take everything they say at face value. Because there's usually some wording in there that will throw you off. Do you believe that they are listening to us on our phones. I do not believe that facebook is listening to us. I believe they're doing something far worse. And i think they are. They've got their fingers show deep into our lives in ways that we have no concept of that. That's actually much more valuable data. I'm talking about deals. They've got with retailers credit card companies to know when we swipe card to know when we buy something or we have a loyalty club when <hes>. You know when you use an app and you go in a certain area. They just have so many sources of information about you. Google is well. Even if you don't have google maps open it'll it can it will track you. They claim it's opt in but nobody knows they ever opted in for this for them to track you everywhere you go but with the sp and the speakers they don't deny it they do listen. They claim it's the word. But that doesn't mean anything because you you say the word and i'm not going to say now because my speaker so crazy but you just say the word and those speakers are listening to your conversation and they're being archived. So which do you think is actually worse facebook's <hes> monitoring or those speakers i think facebook's monitoring is worse because when you bring one of those speakers into your home there is some engagement with the idea that like look. I'm bringing a live. Mike in here you know and <hes> <hes>. Though i agree with you that they listen and they record a lot more often than they should when you just say that wake words are listening to us in different ways. They're just not recording our phone conversations on the phone they are recording our conversations at home. So what do we do if people are concerned about this. I mean basically. Don't use facebook. Don't use google. Don't have a smart speaker in your house. anything else. Well that is always the the nuclear option but there are. There's half halfway steps. You could do along the way as well right so one of the things that happened this year that i'm really happy about a smart speakers so amazon after being completely beaten up by tech columnist like us on this topic finally finally in the fall made a new setting that you can go into the app and you can tell them please do not keep recordings of me and it's not the default. You have to not to do it. But they'll finally at least give you that option. So i recommend that higher forever anybody. Google also has that setting and to google's credit they do their default is to not keep the recording so default is not keep the recording. A less you've out to dinner and nobody knows they opted right. So they have these these dark pattern dry when you when you set up an account and they're constantly getting you to move things around you don't realize it but there is a way to keep them to to tell them to not keep the recordings anymore. So that is a step forward <hes>. For our privacy on facebook. It's it's you know what. What are the half moves with facebook you. Can you can make bulk up your digital armor here right so i use the firefox browser for my browsing on the internet. And there's a thing you can get for. The firefox browser called the facebook container. And i love this thing because it's basically it's like put facebook a corner and they put a little box around them and it doesn't allow facebook to like interact with other websites or see what else doing and i really like that. So that's one way to limit their view on your on your your desktop and then also <hes>. With off facebook activity thing. They came out with at the beginning of this year. You can go in and say stop it to a certain degree. You can't stop them from collecting lots of data about you which you can tell them to stop using it to target you with ads and to stop using it to sort of. Add it to your account so book. That's the baby step as well for people who want to continue using these services but aren't ready to cut him off

"Like to begin tonight with a story I heard from a a minister who described is giving a sermon, one Sunday and hearing two teenage girls in the back giggling and disturbing people, so he says I interrupted my sermon and announced sternly. There are two of you here who have not heard a word I've said. That quieted them down. And when the service was over I went to greet people, the front door and three adults apologized for not listening and for going to sleep. And Church and promised it would never happen again. So. Tonight's talk is. Titled The Sacred Art Of Listening And I'd like to begin by asking you in terms of inquiry. How many of you feel that? You have intention to become better listeners. It's just one of those ongoing intentions I just say. For those of you that are listening to a podcast that was almost everyone. How many of you feel like you have quite a ways to go. That's okay.

You know that we have. It's ten thousand hours to have some mastering in anything. It takes a commitment. To bring this practice of ours of mindfulness into relationships and really listen and without practice. We don't without having some formal way of practicing. We don't seem to do it. We have a lot of patterning we stay in. So I found. That would often will motivate. People is when one or more relationships start obviously deteriorating when they run into trouble and. With a team with your and or with partner, whatever there's a misunderstanding or conflict, and it just keeps spiraling, and clearly it's happening because one or neither neither party. is able to really listen and a way to understand what's going on. Listening and feeling heard. Are really the ground sevigny mature relationship. Love relationship. Listening being able to listen and also feeling that we are heard. So What happens is then we look at our culture and say well. What's the? What's the water? We're swimming in and <HES>? attentional deficit all over the place. Some of you might have heard this.

Losing attention, span and Nicholas Carr wrote a book called the shallows, and if anyone is interested in this kind of thing I I thought it was a a really great book. And He talks about how the effect of Technology on our brain. And how increasing cyber world being plugged into the Internet has actually activate an improve parts of our brain parts that can take in a huge amount of information and very quickly process it in distributed.
