A highlight from Weakness, Fear And Much Trembling
"Let me encourage you with a testimony of Rick Phillips. He's a pastor and an author. I've sat under his ministry at a RC Sproul Pastors Conference. Tremendous guy. Here's his testimony. He wrote it in a book he wrote called Jesus the Evangelist. Here are his words and I'll close with this. One person who might think poorly of her witness is a woman whose words were instrumental in my own salvation. I do not know her name and doubt I could recognize her. One day as I moved into an apartment, she was moving out next door. I carried one box of books to her car. After thanking me, she asked whether I was looking for a church to attend. My body language made it clear that I did not appreciate the question. So she quickly stammered, if you are ever looking for a church, I would recommend this particular church a few blocks away. With that, she drove off and I never saw her again. I've often imagined her kicking herself for her weak attempt to witness. But a few months later when the Holy Spirit had prepared a way for the Lord into my heart, I remembered her words. Went to that church and hearing the gospel there, I believed and was saved. Let's pray together. Father, we thank you for your word. We thank you for the Lord Jesus. We thank you for the ministry of evangelism. Though fear is often and even always with us, motivated by love, let us overcome the ditch of fear. Perfect love casts out fear. May we be used of the Lord to reach others. May we have that mindset, recognizing that when we say anything of the gospel, it's God who opens human hearts. Just as in Acts 16, the Lord opened Lydia's the ability even now on planet earth while we're alive to share your truth either through the words we say or through gospel tracts or through gospel included books, books with the gospel inside, sermons online we can send people to. Lord, we have so many resources, but Lord, use us. Use us. For us as pastors, may we always do the work of an evangelist and may we as Christians, as we go into all the world, preach the gospel. The preaching of the gospel is not living a certain way. That's a result of the gospel. That's the beauty of what the gospel does, but the gospel itself is good news, news that needs to be heard, news that needs to be shared. Lord, we ask these things that you might be glad to be glorified. In Jesus' name, amen.
A highlight from Episode 116 - Steward - bridging the natural and digital worlds with Web3
"We totally believe that nature is the first true decentralized system. And I think there are so many different examples when you look at nature in terms of the resilience that's built into decentralized networks. Welcome to the Crypto Altruism Podcast, the podcast dedicated to elevating the stories of those using Web3 for good. I'm your host Drew Simon from CryptoAltruism .org. Now before we get started, a quick disclaimer. While we may discuss specific Web3 projects or cryptocurrencies on this podcast, please do not take any of this as investment advice and please make sure to do your own research on investment opportunities or any opportunity, including its legality. And now, let's get on to the show. Welcome and thanks so much for joining. Over the last few decades, a new type of world has emerged, the digital world. It started with the birth of the internet, followed by the incredible growth of social media and more recently with the emergence of the Web3 movement. While many view the digital natural worlds as polar opposites and even adversarial, there are many who view digital tools, including Web3 tools, as an exciting opportunity to connect individuals to the natural world. To dive into this, I'm excited to welcome Maria Lee, co -founder of Steward, a Web3 community that aims to create a bridge between the natural and digital worlds. We discuss how Web3 tools can help individuals reconnect with nature, the concept of decentralization in natural ecosystems, driving philanthropic action with NFTs, inclusion in Web3, and much more. Now, before we get started, I have some exciting news to share. Crypto Altruism is taking part in Gitcoin Grants Round 18, which launches today, the date of release of this podcast. We have an ambitious plan to grow Crypto Altruism into an important tool for onboarding nonprofits and changemakers to Web3, and we need your help. I have one big favor to ask of those listening in today. If you've been a fan of our podcast and enjoyed our resources, I would like to ask you to take a moment to support our Gitcoin Grant, even if it's a $1 contribution that can go a long way through matching funds and helping us grow this movement. After all, the more people that contribute, regardless of amount, the more matching funds we'll be eligible for. Thank you so much for hearing me out and not skipping past this part. Crypto Altruism has been bootstrapped since day one, and this grant will help us go full time and grow Crypto Altruism into not only a platform for quality Web3 content, but also a hub for nonprofits and changemakers to turn their inspiration into action using the power of Web3. Make sure to check out the show notes for a link to our Gitcoin Grant proposal, and thank you so much for hearing me out. So without further ado, please join me in welcoming Maria to the Crypto Altruism podcast. Okay, Maria, thank you so much for being here today on the Crypto Altruism podcast. Pleasure to have you. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to be here as well. Yeah, definitely. Really excited to learn about Steward, which is a new initiative, and I'm so glad your team reached out because it sounds like a really exciting opportunity that really connects kind of digital with nature, and so I'm excited to dive into that. Before we get there, though, I want to learn about your story and how you got to Web3. So what would you say was your aha moment, that kind of light bulb that got you excited about crypto or Web3 in the first place? Yeah, for sure. So Steward is a project. We kicked it off somewhere in the middle of the bull market, for sure. So I think we started brainstorming around it and really just thinking big picture. November 2021, probably. And so actually my day job, I run a tech and startup digital media company out here in Singapore. And so I spend a lot of time reading and covering the latest tech trends and latest startup trends. And so when that particular bull run was coming up, what it really felt like, and I still do believe, is that Web3 is going to be this massive technological platform shift, right? And people were talking about it on the scale of internet computing and then mobile and everything that kind of came with that. So it really felt like this massive platform shift. And when the other co -founders, Lydia and Sophia and I, kind of got together, the previous platform shifts when it comes to technology have actually traditionally been led by relatively wealthy white males, to be honest, because that's typically your tech crowd. And it felt like maybe this was an opportunity because Web3 is so much about decentralization and community inclusiveness, we felt like, OK, then we actually wanted to see that level of change represented as well. And so we were like, we should get involved. We don't know anything about Web3. But it felt like, why not? And to start, and it was such heady times, to be honest, that everybody was kind of jumping in. And so we just kind of jumped into it as well. So I think that was the main thing, is really recognizing that this was a major platform shift, that it's obviously in super early stages of the overall Web3 transition, and this opportunity for ourselves to basically learn about it. And every mistake we've learned, we're like, well, at least we won't make that particular mistake again. But being able to bring in more women, minorities, people of color into this space, yeah, so that was one. And then actually, the second bit was really more about the immutable part of the blockchain, because I know this is what historically blockchain technology is super exciting about. And people have always kind of hypothesized about different ways that it could be used, the immutable ledger aspect of it. But then I think what we saw in 2021, 2022 is people really kind of expanding the definition of that and figuring out, OK, what are the different applications of it? And so I think that was where technology actually opened up a new world of interacting, of storing information, of passing on information. And so it was also this amazing ability to basically apply it to all these new use cases. Yeah. Yeah. Amazing. Well, that's great. And I love what you said earlier on, too, about looking at the technological shift that's coming with Web3 and recognizing that technological changes or transformation in the past have really been led by white, wealthy males from Western countries, typically. And that, you know, you're going to make sure that your project made its mark. It was a part of this movement. And I think that's so important. We're going to talk a little bit about that later on, too. But I appreciate you sharing all that background. And I couldn't agree more with everything you said there. And I want to talk about Steward now and learn a little bit about kind of your mission and the roadmap and all that stuff. So on your website, you mentioned how Steward is a bridge between the natural world and digital world. So love that mission. Can you please give listeners a high level overview of your work and your mission? Sure. Yeah. So as I mentioned, our goal is to basically bridge the natural and digital worlds. One of the things that really stood out to us is when you look at the climate space, less than two percent of global philanthropy dollars go towards climate. Right. And whereas, like I think you can see from the news on a daily basis right now, climate is actually the number one challenge that we all face. But the giving level has never quite matched the emergency and the need level, which is ridiculous because, you know, if you think about how much money has been poured into Web3, how much money is currently being poured into AI, like the world has enough money to basically go invest in a lot of the climate solutions that we actually already have. It's just not being directed to the right places. And then so we wanted to kind of co -opt a lot of the funding and the interest that Web3 was getting and redirect some of those financial and capital flows over to the climate space. And so what we mean by creating that bridge is literally, you know, Steward at a high level, it's a digital art collection, formerly known as NFTs. Right. And then I can tell more so the digital art collection is all premise of a different ecosystem for each particular ecosystem. We picked a nonprofit partner that's working on the front lines of that particular ecosystem. And then as the art is being collected, traded, sold, whatever, a portion of those proceeds is always going straight to that nonprofit partner. So what it is, is an institutionalized, more permanent way of giving and donating to the climate space, but also worked into like somebody's maybe like daily flows so that it's not like, oh, man, it's the end of the year, I have to go, you know, like write a bunch of philanthropy checks and like charity checks in order to offset my taxes. Right. But we are trying to build it into like more of like a daily actionable basis. Yeah. The question so that we can direct more of the funding, more of everybody's global funding into the climate space. Yeah, very cool. And so you mentioned there, you know, digital art is kind of being one of the key components of your mission and your work. So let's talk about that. How can digital mediums like NFTs and other Web3 tools really help individuals reconnect with nature? Because they're often seen as like separate. Right. Or like almost competing. You have like digital in nature. But really, there's an opportunity here to kind of use digital to bridge that gap to nature, which is, of course, the mission of Stuart. So talk to me about that. Yeah. So I think that framing is super binary and it makes people feel like those two are necessarily at odds. But let's be real, like if there is no natural world, we don't have a digital world. Right. Like at the end of the day, internet, Wi -Fi, cloud storage feels invisible, but it's all being stored in like massive servers being connected that are right. So like even the most visual aspects of anything still has an incredibly physical natural part, which has a huge impact. So I think that's one thing we wanted to do is just kind of break down the binary and be like, it's not one or the other, but the two can coexist. And so one way that we try to do it. So each one of our digital pieces of our digital artwork, it has a geolocation code. And so, like, say we have a different ecosystem. So you have like a piece of art from the Tundra collection. That is actually coded to a specific point on the planet that's actually in the Tundra, which is different than like the next Tundra piece of art. And then our artwork is dynamic. And so actually we'll show in semi real time. I think we have like a two or three hour lag, but like semi real time, the weather conditions and the time of day that's actually happening in that particular part of the world. And so it's almost like a window into, you know, a different part of the world that you don't typically see, but you maybe feel like a bit more of that physical connection with or that emotional connection with because you can kind of understand what's actually happening there. And so I think, yeah, so that was like the main concept behind a lot of the artwork is to make people feel like they understand the place that even if they're just sitting at their desk at home, you know, they can open up their their web browser or phone or or like whatever their digital art, digital framework and feel connected to a part of nature and be reminded that honestly, that natural world is still out there. It's still moving and changing without you. Yeah, and because I think a lot of times when we think about the digital or sorry, the natural world now is honestly when we see some of the terrible headlines about like extreme weather, flooding, you know, heatwaves, whatever it is, which tends to be quite negative. And so the other thing we wanted to showcase is like, actually the genuine peacefulness that comes with nature, right? And then like most of the time, it's actually as wonderful and beautiful and you're going off to the cabin. So I think you get it. But the stillness amazing that comes with with just being in nature and that it doesn't have to be a new cycle that draws our attention to nature, but it can just be something that's like beautiful, pleasant to look at. Yeah, yeah, amazing. That's so cool. I love that. And yeah, I think that, you know, you're right, it is not binary, right? And that one doesn't exist without the other. Well, nature exists without digital, but digital doesn't exist without nature and the physical. And so, you know, using that as an opportunity to remind people of the importance of reconnecting with nature and the regeneration that can come with that. Love that. That's so important and incredible. And I think another piece of the puzzle here that's really interesting is I often see Web3 as kind of, you know, the perfect tool in a sense for like, you know, helping reconnect with nature because I, you know, I see decentralization as a key pillar in Web3. But then I also see Web3 concepts like decentralization being found in nature, which could, you know, very much be viewed as the first decentralized system. Thoughts on this and how Web3 kind of is it is a optimal tool for this mission? Yes, we totally believe that nature is the first true decentralized system. And I think there's so many different examples when you look at nature in terms of like the resilience that's built into decentralized networks, right? And so the two I think most obvious ones are mycelium networks and aspen networks. So aspen are, you know, like those beautiful trees, their deep roots are underground. And actually, when you see an individual aspen tree, you're basically just seeing like an individual clone off that name that's branching off of that main network. And I think what's amazing about that is that even if like some of the trees are wiped out, if that root system exists, it'll continue to repopulate itself. And so like the beauty of decentralization, which is very much the fundamentals of Web3 is that when it's community based, the overall network becomes a lot stronger, becomes a lot more resilient. And yeah, so like aspen trees are a great example. Mycelium networks are other great example, which is like the fibrous root network that a lot of fungus and trees absorb. So they communicate, right? And so like, if there's, I don't know, fire or like something traumatic that's happening to one part of the mycelium network, there's actually like methods of communication where, where like other other trees and other plants within that network, basically, like if this warning signal can take some defensive actions. And so it's so beautiful, I think how nature has already developed all these systems, right in order to make itself more resilient to whatever's happening. And of course, again, we're a climate focused project. And so like a lot of the a lot of the changes that are happening, honestly, are bad, but nature has built in has the built in defense mechanism to do so and basically to manage it. And I love that the a lot of the principles around Web3 are basically the same thing, because I do think that there's a lot of things that could be fixed in our current, like normal, capitalistic Western world, right to power concentrated in the hands of too few, poor decisions being made, I think not really like soliciting, like input feedback or from the overall community. So I actually think that's so amazing that the Web3 community is founded on this idea of decentralization. We would just, you know, like to point out that nature did it first, not that that's like a right or wrong thing. But that there is power and it makes and that's also like one of the reasons we felt even more, I don't know, passionate that like Web3 was the right kind of like platform vehicle to launch a project such as Steward. Yeah, yeah, that's so cool. That's absolutely fascinating. And you really explained that well of how nature is the first decentralized system and how you've seen kind of those elements of these decentralized networks that have existed since forever. Right. Which makes Web3 really a cool tool to help return people to nature. I love that. And, you know, one of the ways they're doing this, of course, is so you have individuals that they want to participate. They buy one of these digital art pieces that I know representative of one of the ecosystems. It also has contributions from a global artist, which is really cool how you're bringing so many different people to the table. So tell me more about the digital art behind the project. Yeah, absolutely. So we one of the co -founders is a creative director, like former Nike, absolute creative genius, and has an amazing artist network. And so I think, again, like we came together what what we really wanted this project to do beyond the climate and information aspect is actually be very representative and inclusive of the result, which is why we were like, okay, we were tapping into new, fresh, young rising artists, you know, who may not otherwise have the opportunity. People actually haven't done that, like other NFT questions or any sort of digital artwork, because one of the main goals is to bring new people into the Web3 fold. And, and yeah, it would be representative of the world that we that we live in. So we kind of put out a global call, did a global search for these artists. We're also looking for honestly different styles, right? And we wanted each ecosystem to have its own vibe, which when I think we've really some snapshots and like some snippets of the artwork, but like, they look really, really different, which is also a very cool part of the collection. And yeah, and so we came up with a shortlist and basically started working through and asking people, you know, like, was there a particular ecosystem they identified with? I think some people pick ecosystems where obviously they live because, you know, the connection, the emotional connection is very strong there. But also ones that maybe they just like found fascinating or, you know, when you're a kid, you kind of get obsessed with like different things. And so people like actually, I've always loved the Tundra, you know, so it was kind of beautiful and organic in terms of how the different artists came through. And I do think actually one interesting part again, we started off in 2021 is a lot of artists that we spoke to even the artists that ultimately signed on with us, didn't want to do an NFT collection, because I think, you know, the word out on the street was like, NFT collections or exploits, exploiting artists, right? Like, it came in with this idea of, of like royalties for the artists, and they would get paid and they would get recognition for like any other artwork they produce. But I do think there were some very popular questions at the time where you found out that wasn't true. And basically, the artwork was like paid for like a few hundred bucks or whatever, but then the project was like hundreds of millions. So, so I think that digital art was actually getting a maybe a bit of a bad rep within the artists as well. So actually, we took that as an opportunity for education, right. And obviously, we've set up our royalty structure. So that again, like, for every every time a piece of artwork is sold, you're donating a piece, a bit of your proceeds go straight to the nonprofit, but also a very small part of it goes to the artists as well for royalties. So that becomes like that ongoing, you know, living proof and transfer of like, you know, a job well done, and people appreciating your artwork and the financial benefits and history to kind of go along with that. Cool. That's, that's awesome. I love that. Yeah, yeah, for sure. And I love the way that you've kind of, and I saw this on your website to use as an opportunity to really educate, kind of help, you know, shift the space away from the, you know, the the negative that was becoming maybe the, you know, an NFT digital art space. So, you know, kudos to you for doing that. And you had mentioned too, like a portion of the funds from each person of these digital art goes to one of eight nonprofits, each representative of one of those different ecosystems that you mentioned as well, I believe. So tell me more about this, the nonprofits, how they were selected, kind of, you know, all that process. Yeah. Okay. So earlier, we were talking about binary digital versus nature, natural. And I think when it came to selecting nonprofits, that binary contract was another thing we wanted to deconstruct. So I think at the beginning of COVID, you know, like, obviously, everybody was kind of hidden away in lockdown, and things like that. And you did see nature kind of reclaim certain cities, certain areas. And then I think a lot of the storyline was like, nature fights back or like, nature, you know, like, nature wins against the people and things like that. And so we also didn't want it to feel like people cannot coexist in harmony with nature. Because obviously, you know, prior to our latest urbanization, people have coexisted with nature, like very, very well, and very harmoniously for thousands of years. I think it's really, we've kind of lost a bit of that, especially in the Western world, in the last, like, century, probably. And so when you're picking our nonprofits, actually, we again, we're working in very diverse ecosystems. So that was great, because they kind of allowed us an opportunity to be really, really global in our search. But we're also picking for frontline organizations and primarily indigenous one, because I think you find an indigenous communities still have a lot of traditional understandings of how to maintain the environment that they're living and working in. And so that they still can make a living, they can still eat, right, but it's not like an exploitative level of, of, like farming out that particular ecosystem or environment. And so we try to focus more on indigenous nonprofits as much as possible, because it felt like they had like that more, honestly, like a wiser, more mature and steady approach in terms of like, how do you kind of coexist in harmony with nature. And so yeah, so we came up with, again, an amazing list of eight, eight nonprofit, kind of all around the world, each one is working, what we felt is really on the front lines of protecting and preserving that particular ecosystem. They are honestly not the biggest name, right? Because again, a lot of the main goal of the project is to channel funds to the people we felt like needed at most. So they're not the biggest names. But we they're ones that we believe have the right vision, vision and heart. Yeah, so so I think it's incredibly exciting. Like the one that we're working with in Brazil, for example, the articulation of the indigenous people of Brazil, they do so much in terms of the Amazon, which, you know, I don't need to explain is incredibly important. And so, so I think that's just like, that was one of the main things. Sorry. And the other the other thing I would say, when we were looking for nonprofits, is, you know, I do think the larger ones tend to have higher admin and overhead costs. And again, for us, we wanted our every single dollar that was falling towards these organizations to be, you know, as useful and as, as impactful as possible. And so yeah, and so I think that was another another filter that we added on. So yeah, we're super excited about the aid. And actually, same thing to the artists, a lot of nonprofits were a little wary about, you know, like, taking crypto, and they're like, I mean, they're nonprofits, right. And so they're like, I mean, some were very, very savvy, actually, like, Oh, I already have a crypto wallet. Here you go. Which was amazing, but actually, most of them did not. And so same thing, it was like, you know, if what really is that next technological platform shift, as a nonprofit, you also can't really afford to miss out on it, right? Like, you need the dollars. And so we wanted to also take this as an opportunity to kind of bring along their own crypto web through journey, so that they wouldn't be missing out on potential crypto altruism dollars that would otherwise be coming their way. So yeah, that as a as a great educational opportunity as well. Yeah, definitely. And absolutely love the approach you took to select those nonprofits. I think that's amazing. And, because you mentioned earlier to like, you know, environmental organizations are traditionally underfunded, that 2 % figure, I know that indigenous organizations, at least in Canada, right, are also traditionally underfunded, you know, disproportionately underfunded, compared to other organizations, right. And then also, you know, deliberately choosing to work with smaller organizations versus larger organizations, I think is important because, you know, you think when it comes to technological shifts, those smaller organizations are often the ones that also struggle to make that adaptation to, you know, embrace these new technologies, because maybe they don't have the same capacity and staffing, you know, ability of these large organizations. And so they might get left behind, right. So I think that that's amazing that you're providing that opportunity to make sure that they don't get left behind. And then also bringing more indigenous organizations in a web three as well, which I think is important to make sure this, you know, that we're building from the ground level and making as inclusive of an ecosystem as possible. So kudos to you for taking that approach. I think it's so important, would have been easy to just go with one of the big, you know, big name environmental organizations that maybe already has is accepting crypto donations and has a web through strategy. But, you know, you went with one of the smaller ones, which I think is so important. So yeah, you know, kudos to you for doing that. Thank you. Thank you. I think one of the things that we thought deeply about is like, when when these platform shifts happen, why do people get left behind? Right. And I think it's like, it's not necessarily that, like, people are actively trying to exclude others. But it's really that people who are the most under resourced have the least amount of time and energy to put into learning something new, like they're basically trying to make do with what they have. So that could be true for, you know, an artist who has like a ton of like commission, where that could be true for a nonprofit that's already relatively under resourced and can barely keep up with like, the level of work and funding that they have now. Right. And so it's not necessarily intentional thing when people when people get left behind. But it's one of those things that's like, oh, it's nobody's fault and just ends up happening. But the thing is, we've seen that pattern history happen so many different times. And so it just felt like, I mean, granted steward is, you know, like, I don't think we're going to be the one that changes the game. But we wanted to be one example in which we can bring a few more people in, and maybe like, become a reflection point for a few different artists we work with for a few of the organizations we work with. And if nothing else, basically set up a model that kind of works, that maybe other projects could replicate.

"lydia" Discussed on Love Island: The Morning After
"I am super excited because I think we're about to get some real good tea India. Oh yes, we are joined by Cynthia leyla and Lydia from Castro a more welcome to the pod ladies. Hello. Hello. You were brilliant on after some by the way. Yeah. Do you know what? You've all got each other's backs. I feel like holding each other's hands and stuff and like, you know, when you're going through that, I know we were talking actually on after some weren't we? Yeah. About how when you're connected physically to the Pete girls that you've been in the villa for, it can sort of make you emotional, but you know they're there for you as well. 100%. Yeah, definitely. Now, it's fair to say that you guys brought the drama into casserole more. Now, did you expect that when you went in? I mean, seeing how solid most of the couples were in there. Definitely not. I don't think that because the early drama at all. Yeah. I think we just kind of went in and just was like, we're just going to follow our hearts and what felt right, raid the wave. Yeah. Did you guys feel like though it would be like hard to turn some of the guys head because some of them are just so solid? Yeah, for sure. I think with Cass as well like by the time that comes around a lot of people are very solid. So as a hard time to enter the Bella and think that anything will come from. Obviously, it does happen, but I don't think anyone had any really high expectations of that happening. Yeah. Well, you know what, ladies, we're absolutely gutted that you've left the villa and we didn't get to find out more about you guys, but we thought we'd play a little game. Oh, fun. We got a bowl full of questions here. We're each gonna take it in turns to pull out a question and then you can decide who you want to ask it to. One of your fellow casuals or India or I please not either of us. Are you ready? Oh yes. Let's go. It's terrifying. Right, Lydia, do you want to kick us off? Yeah, here we go, right? Come on, shoot the hit. Let me see what we've got here. Oh, what was your favorite moment and the vella or obviously it needs to be one of the cast at all? Oh God. It's got to be the I'm not going to lie. It was the straddle. It was so fun. It was probably what I would do on the outside, not obviously on a terrace, but I would probably straddle something. Butterflies go in. Oh my gosh. I'm not going to license. I really thought that you would say I was staying in High School Musical. No, no. Absolutely not. Like the energy one, yeah. I'm with you. Right, okay. On after sun, the castle boys met the Casa girls, have any of the boys caught your eye, and if so, are you going to slide into their DMs? Now we saw some declarations of love. We did. I am going to redirect that question. Back to Lydia. Of course you are. Are you gonna die? No, no, right. This is this edge. All the boys are super nice. Kane obviously really sweet. Everything that you said last night was really nice. It was nice to hear. Do you not me especially after the last week or whatever? But I feel like the whole me not getting packed and the Bella is just saying that maybe you need more time for myself. So as much as the boys are nice, I think right now is not the late time. As you send to your DMs. Of course he has. What he's saying to say is already just saying ask him basically for a date.

Physical touch and quality time. So you want somebody to like bring your coffees in the morning and things like that. No, I don't care about the coffees in the morning, but like I like someone like, I need help. I feel like I'm like, I'm so busy, yeah. I really appreciate it when someone tries to take the weight off my shoulders or like just does something that I wouldn't have time to do like that makes me like, oh, okay. Thank you, you know? Actually, I need help. So if my misses take does something to lighten the load, I'm sure I love you so much. Whereas she's like, I got you a gift. I'm like, well, thank you. No, I don't like that.

You have a haggard. Bagpipes. On a first date. Yes. I've actually played the bagpipes. Ashley hate first dates are so bad. I love birthdays. I don't know like, I feel like I could go either way depending on how I feel. I feel like a dinner date, you can't go wrong with because you can, if you're eating spaghetti, anything that's like slurpee. Deal with that. Just don't order it. Yeah. Okay, if you go food dates, sushi every time. Yeah, and hungry after. I know fresh steak and cheese. No. I always get a stellar. No. No, it's sushi because it's easy. It's finger food or chopstick food. Then you get sake as well, mate. Yeah, yeah, when you get the salted down. I told you, there we go. Yeah, but steak, like if you're at a fed's restaurant. Yeah, but you want it out there and chopping stuff. Yeah, but that's why you get a good steak and you get it like medium rare so it actually cuts in half shaking the table. Right, okay, let me get a, I don't have a Russell on in there. Okay, what's the maddest thing that's happened to you on a date? I'm gonna direct this to you. Nice. Oh no. Tell us all.

First of all, I hate being the girl that is like, you know, the guys that have the really loud cars, like the really loud songs. Oh my gosh, Nick. And I literally said I never wanted to be that girl, right? So he comes and picks me up and every single time he like revved the engine. I just, yeah, I was just down. I just sunk lower and lower inside. And I don't like pub dates, like I like activities. Like I like fun dates, right? So he took me to the pub. Okay. In the box for the first date to the local to the local pub, and so again, I think I'm quite a funny person. And I was making him laugh, but I made him laugh so hard, he started having a nosebleed.

"Him and you know. When you've been embarrassed publicly, right? I love that. I would love you. But when someone takes that upon themselves to do it, it does mean something because you're like, do you know what? You've understood. What you put me through and you are doing it yourself. And you're trying to equal out that you're trying to basically take some of the embarrassment off their shoulders and be like, I'll take it online. This was the right course of action for Tanya and Shaq. You could see it was Kelly. He was coming and you know, you can't stand in the way of that kind of love, man. I think what she should have done though is have a private conversation with that. Let Martin know, I went downstairs instead of sneaking off to the low, I was shacking up with chat. And then she could have done her public displays of affection and tried to graft and get shot back. I just felt like Martin didn't deserve it. He needed to know a lot more. He was blindsided. And in tonight's episode we saw a little cheeky snippet, didn't we? But you know, he's got every right to do that. He's got every right to do that. I rate that. He deserves it. So we'll see where it goes. Yeah, I agree. 'cause then at one point, Shaq's like holding a back. And you're like, don't touch me. Tanya is a little firecracker though. That is why I absolutely love that. Breakups are never easy. I want to know what was your last breakup like both of you. Actually, who is your do you have to name and share it? That's why let's get into it. Okay, what was the name of your ex? Oh no, I'm not saying that. He doesn't need that at times. Yeah, okay, so how do you break up? It wasn't a bad one. Just who broke up with you? Me. I broke up with him. And why? Wait, which one should we go into? A bad one or a good one. My one's bad. Should we do a bad breakup? Do you break up too easy? How long ago was it? The bad one was like, three, four years ago. And what happened there? I love you with him before. I was with him for about two and a half three years. Oh. Yeah, and I don't know, I just got to my breaking point. I was like, I just realized that we don't actually have anything in common, and it's just not working out. So I did say to him, look, it's not really working out. I think we need to ask ways, like this is just not working. As he reached out soon. No, not since. Because what happened was, right? When I got rid of him, oh God. He came back in the new year and messaged me and tried to be like, oh, happy new year, like how are you wherever? And then he phoned me. And he was like, oh, happy new year. Like, how's jager? And I'm like, I'm good. And he was like, India like I just want to give it another chance like blah, blah. And I was like, my mom's calling me like, I want to go have dinner, so I'll call you back. I changed my mind with the next day. No. Close to each other. He lived like 15 minutes, like 15 minute drive from me. And I hadn't seen him since, but I did see him maybe like a year ago. Like, up bricks in high school. Man, you were damned now. You'll be fine. Literally. Anyone looks at dancing. She's leveled up. Today, you said you had a bad one, go on. I mean, it's very simple. I broke up with him because he cheated on me. All that stuff is. Not long, maybe like 18 months. That's long. Not long, maybe. A long time to get cheated on. Yeah, I mean, we're not giving him any more air time. Yeah, he don't know. But I was like, bye. I'm like that. You're talking to stuff out the window. Oh my God, yeah, I had a whole. We didn't live together. I had my flat. He had his, but he spent most of his time in mine, and it accumulated so much things. And he didn't know I was going to do it. And then while he was out, I just packed stuff in black bin Laden as I felt like I was in a music video. Literally and I put it on my front door and we were arguing and then he came in and he was like, this is all my stuff. And I was like, get out. Shut up. Love naturally. Get out. And I never saw him again? No, now it's back together. Absolutely not. He groveled, but I was like, bye. No, good for you. What about you, Sam? I'm a dumped anyone? No. Right. No, I got money to be dumped. Because you are the best. Well, yeah, I mean, I mean look, I've done some terrible things. I mean, yeah, I was absolutely little animal when I was a kid. I had the man of age like a 15 year old. But that's something late bloomers always are. I've realized that in my older age now, late bloomers are always sort of like they always get it wrong at the start because they're trying to catch up. I agree with that, you know. And I feel like I was trying to catch menace. Well, it probably is. I mean, I didn't look great, so I wasn't exactly a menace to the 9 out of ten, but I was just a menace. Anyone who wanted me, really. While Tina, thank you for joining us. We've had an amazing time on the pod. Thank you. And we want to find out before you leave. Which couple do you think are going to become official first? I think it's going to be, do you know what? I would have said Ron and Lana, but after last night and Tanya getting on that stage and declaring her love. I think it's going to be Shaq and Tanya just because it's like, all right, I'm not going anywhere now. It's a really good intense love. It's pretty intense. That's how I love it. Yeah, but she's actually that could be the problem. I'm a Leo. I'm so intense. That could be the proper love that I burn in love. Passion. And you know, Tanya and Shaq could literally be telling their grandkids, you know? We loved with a burning love. Yes. With a burning love. And it didn't go great at the start. I mean, my God, when I hopefully have kids with Zara and all those things, I can't wait to tell them about all the times that we screwed up at the start. Like it happens, you know? You never know. I think they could be on for a lifelong full of passion and love. Yeah. That is the best one. I'm saying that. Official. Yeah. Bad. Janet, thank you so much. Thank you. We are absolutely your legend and keep standing. And I'll see you later.

"What was also really special and then we had him in the arms of a nurse kissed him and touched his nose and then said goodbye. I'm so sorry for what you've gone through, Lydia. I love how you said that you were so happy in that moment of being with him. Yeah. And so tragically sad. You know, in the middle, I have not experienced this kind of pain that you've experienced. It's so interesting to me that so often tragedy and tragedy is also woven with joy. Even in that process of coming home without your baby, what did it look like to also find the joy in the middle of the tragedy? That's kind of life after a loss. Regardless of what the last is, like you've experienced the lowest of lows, but somehow that's made a way for you to experience higher highs, I think. Holding both of those things is just kind of our life right now. You know, being having space to feel so sad, but also feeling so thankful for what we do have. That's just the balancing act that I feel you walk after loss and that's a kind of grief in a way. Yeah, coming home was devastating to and so hard. Yeah, I had my husband went in before me and just put all the baby stuff away and shut the nursery door and yeah, I think it was really hard to find joy. For a while after that. But I found solace in things that not necessarily felt joyful but just felt good so like being with my family felt really good and my mom and my sister lived in the past for basically like a month after it happened. What a gift that is. What I get is that is. Yeah, they were amazing. And coloring for some reason. Because my brain can only handle so much stimulation, so just like being able to color a mandala or whatever. Playing cards. Doing puzzles. So you just kind of start to find those things that feel not like, oh, this is the best time ever, because I don't think you know, I don't think that's a reasonable for the time right after, but just like this feels this feels okay or this feels good right now. In talking about him too, like you said, having that birth experience affirmed what's really important. And I found no one asks about your birth story when the birth ends in a death. Like, wow. And that was hard for me because I did just give birth, you know? And I did that thing that I had never done before. And it was my friend who was a labor and delivery nurse. I had sent her some photos. And she was the first one to affirm Lydia. You did that. Birthed this beautiful baby. And it looks like you didn't use any, you know, like you did it naturally, which had been a goal for me. And just that was so.

Okay you know that kind of instant recognition that because people 'cause is in my opinion the work that you're doing is so trustworthy and reliable and it shows in it's coming from a place of deep love for black people. It's coming from a place of deep love for the liberation of the most marginalized which will free us all and providing that as a model for his generous work. Also glad to hear that. It's soul sustaining for you. That's something that is another different from your workplace. Oh yes and that we can build lads affirm us. Yes and yes that we can do that. I the fact that we can do it. And we can tell other folks about it can hopefully encourage more folks to step out a little bit. Not everybody is going to be able to carefully walk away from a job. Not everyone wanna be able to start like a craft platform or start a podcast or started youtube channel. Not everyone is going to do that. But the idea that you can't if you want to like that is encouraging the possibility is there. It's not for everybody. We are not all the exact same way to the exact same things other than to maintain and for the dignity of human beings. You know what i mean for me. It's this for me this for someone else. It might just simply being. The voice in the workplace is coming alongside. A co worker is going through rely. There's infinite ways today activists but none of those ways involves being silas so there. There is no in my tea and there is no silent activism. It's about making use of where you are your resources your personal talents in guests your personal relationships with people and speaking into those live speaking into those moments those moments that are typical using your voice. However you there's a lot of or there was a lot of any ways weeded out a lot of this but you know last year of like well. I just don't know what to say. I don't say anything and it's like you not to say speak without wisdom of course be wise in what you say whatever but sometimes the the lack of speaking up or reluctance to use your voice isn't cutting from your lack of wisdom is. It's not coming from your lack of knowing issues and understanding is just simply fear. Yes you're just simply afraid of being that ally that you've been called to be and that i think is very dangerous set for those marginalized people around you. If enough people were active allies note active allies. I don't feel like we would see as much workplace violence as we see no regarding not. I'm talking about like you know the hr memos and 'isolation yes there wouldn't be beheaded workplace violence there because culture would be. Hey we are allies misplace and they're willing to use their privilege and their voice to say that's not okay right. That's not okay. That's unacceptable brush so please silent activism where we are yeah seems to me just consuming knowledge constantly and i actually like doing a good thing with this. Yes exactly. it's not consuming but not digesting it right sitting your side. So what for no reason and yeah and also. I don't like how that switches the emphasis right onto that you that your efforts now need to be targeted to the path of persuasion. Oh larry helped persuade you.

"You so much lydia. Welcome thank you for having me. Sorry it took so long. Hey it's at the time it needed to take a man. And i am very glad to be here so i wanted to talk a bit about. How did you get started. What made you take the leap from being a crafter. Who was just doing things in her own home for her own. Edification to turn to making things like stickers and stamps and things like that like what was the thing that got you going. Okay so when i really started crafting to put it out into the world if you will i was not a crafter prior to that. It was like cracking from me. Started as a means of self care as means of processing trauma it was workplace trauma. Of course there's you know childhood trauma and everything else. We beat by women. Also you know the world trauma but for me. It was coming out of a work experience. That was very mentally dangerous and leaving a company that i felt really drained. My energy drained myself worse. Really put me down into a pit okay. And so then i started. Doing watercolor paints stamps. As so just you know. Painting the backgrounds really simply. I'm not a great painter by any stretch of the imagination. But then i love seeing how people would stamp on top of the dry background in the us in boston. Powders and the heat gun to raise the lettering or raise the stamps. And all of that. so cool. I've never seen that before. Thanks instagram you know. I saw that on his. Oh that's so cool. I'm going to try that. So i've got a little heat. Guide got the stamps de bussey better in house.

"Yes we got the purple cloth and so you know we know that. Lydia in the church at phillipine continued to be financial supporters of paul. we know that from philippians. Four ten or twenty. And i even wondered. And this is complete speculative. But i've even wondered if lydia used some of her sway to get paul and silas out of prison because it's just so random like yeah. I mean. i get like magistrates. They didn't you know the they didn't want roman citizens to be mistreated in their town. Like that was a bad look. But i've also wondered like if she had something to do with that because it does feel so random. Oh and you wanna talk about something. That's not going to be like breadcrumbs through the scripture of like this massive network of female our leaders anyway and that's again total speculation. Well what you just described is basically college football now. Like the booster network who get hired and fired people jobs and everything that's where it is but instead of called schwartz it's like you know your faith and stuff like the pta of first century like it a lot Okay so Was the story a metaphor. You guys come and talked about this briefly but this is something that i think. I'm this isn't necessarily a gentle rebuke. What i think you rebuke it now. It's okay because i feel like it was more me than jamie. Never be fair. Yes but i think because he'll is historical documentation. It does still strange that he would suddenly be like. Yes and there was a magical earthquake. But that's a matter for you. So while i don't personally think that it is a metaphor just based on that i am interested in why you think that Well i think it was more. Just the specifics. The magical earthquake dow brook chains. You know yeah and like nobody like a stone didn't fall in someone's head sure civic that. That's where it's less than i think. It's actively a metaphor loops trying to throw that in. It's more of that. We need to be and Here's what they said happens. Yeah i don't know if it actually happened like that's kind of kind of glossing over. Maybe adding supernatural significant. Just use some kate until story. We had a little raspberry go to heaven. And we're in the heavenly coffee shop. And knox is just meeting. All these people are like and ezra walks in like what who for you to meet them. They're like wouldn't be too yeah areas. Yeah holy okay so you guys were asking about the hymns that they might have been singing yemen so this is really interesting. It is to me So these are not hymns like we know them with like you know four verses in stanza whatever We get our modern understanding of hymns from a guy named ambrose and he lived in the three hundred. That pre embrose hymns were essentially psalms like chanted in rhythmic. they didn't rhyme. They were just like the docs allergy essentially glory native about.

Why New York’s Snowstorms Are Growing—Along With Warming Winter Temperatures
"WN Y sees, Lydia McMullen layered explains. Both things are a consequence of climate change. Winters just aren't as cold as they used to be. In fact, winter temperatures in the city have increased more than 3 F since 1970, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Yet severe winter weather is still a regular occurrence. According to Dominic Ramani, meteorologist at the National Weather Service. Six of New York's 10 largest snowfalls have occurred in the last 20 years. That's because a warming climate means more moisture in the air, which causes more precipitation, events of all kinds, including snowstorms. 32 degrees right now in New York City, seeing some freezing rain this morning, then it's gonna

Even Mayor Lightfoot said that he's the reason why teachers are not going back to school. They want to blame him for the covert vaccinations well, The New York Times is reporting that nine senior state health officials have left their positions, citing Cuomo's leadership. Including his failure to follow the state Department of Health's vaccination plan. Okay, so nine people in his administration have left because of his poor leadership, and then King Cuomo actually remember, he kept saying Follow the science followed the science. Listen to the data will take Take a listen to hear what he just said at a press conference regarding following the science when I say experts in air quotes Uh, It sounds like I'm saying, I don't really trust the experts. Because I don't Because I don't Yeah, Yeah, No, We played this yesterday. Be quite honest with you, Lydia, and he's just an arrogant schmuck. He doesn't trust the experts. And as you said today, that's what they said about President He doesn't follow. The science doesn't listen to the scientists. Of course, that's so who we listen to He was listening to Fauci and Burkes when he made all his decisions about masks or whatever the hell it was, But this guy openly admits he doesn't listen to the scientists. I mean, they're the ones who told him that the restaurants are responsible for 1.4% of the infection's, yet he still keep them closed. So it doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Jesus cycle pitch as we said a million times. Well, I didn't know you played it already because then I would have done my other story that the CNN and MSNBC, their ratings are in a free fall. They're in a freefall now that their golden Goose president Trump is no longer in office, So that's why they're freaking out and trying to shut down conservative media. That's my theory. It's true and funny. You say that because I pointed this out to Bernie a couple days ago, we start the same time Joe and Mika Start, and about two days ago, Miko was interviewing somebody about the possibility of delaying the start of the baseball season. Do take over, they said the burning ago Mick is talking baseball. You know that now No one's watching and their intent. Come five and Bernie left and agreed. And that goes right to the point that you're making. They don't have our boy Donald Trump to kick around anymore. No. And Fox is killed is really they're getting lost in the ratings. They're actually behind CNN and MSNBC. They're down 18%, at least from a year ago. Which is why, by the way, they want this impeachment. The Senate impeachment trial this salivating because they're gonna bring back the bogeyman. Donald Trump, and they will have to kick around for a little bit longer. With this. This this farce of an impeachment trial. Yeah, again. He is what unites them. He is the only thing that unites them again. I would say that Joe Biden is crazy left this radical, sick lunatic really unexpected how fast he's put out this leftist agenda. That's unifying them as well. But to keep to keep them off his back. He's happy to have Donald Trump in the news, starting with the trial that begins on Tuesday of next week. And then you have officer sick, Nick. Now it's very tragic that he died during the Capitol riots. But why is his? He died on January 6, and only now they're having his body lay in repose in the Capitol Rotunda. It just seems like it's kind of like a publicity ploy that they're trying to do ahead of the impeachment to try toe. You know, we know the gravity of it. We know what happened that day. It's horrific, and it should have never happens. But why are they waiting this long to put his body body out if they'd only paid the this type of homage to all the police officers who get killed? Throughout, you know, every every day in the in cities across the country, and over the past few years, you of course, there's a political component to it, and the guy should be honored Sick. Nikki was an Iraq war veteran, by the way, a trump supporter ironically, On a great, you know, heroic Capitol police officer. But, yes, there was no doubt a political component to it. Just as there is to keep in those troops down in D. C. Despite the fact that there is absolutely no evidence of any threat whatsoever. They say they're gonna keep it there during the Senate impeachment trials. Well, you know, you're gonna have a much unrest and You know, quote, a quote terrorist acts as you had during the inauguration. You taking have nothing.

I want people to believe that the process to get to that conclusion if that's where we're going is without flaws. So that by it, it's without putting the bottom on the scale for any candidate. She doesn't necessarily think there's a conflict. She just wants for transparency sake to make sure there isn't complicated. Arroyo says. The State ethics Commission got back to him in less than an hour, saying there's no conflict.

Trump’s social media bans are raising new questions on tech regulation
"We've all heard the news This week, Some of Silicon Valley's social media giants have given President Trump the boot the moves by the likes of Twitter and Facebook and sparked a global conversation about who has the right to regulate speech and what role the big tech platforms should play in policing the Web. Rose. Lydia Manta leader covers technology for the show and joins me to talk through all this little you've been following some of the reactions to the trump banned by several social media platforms. What are you saying? Yes. Oh, Marco's you might imagine there's been a wide range of reactions to this. Some people are applauding the social media platforms for banning Trump, even though they say this should have happened long ago and then others have some reservations. So, for example, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the span problematic that it should be up to legislators of a country to decide how speech is regulated. This is a critique that we heard from officials in the UK as well as France, this idea that In a democracy. There should be clear laws and regulations around acceptable speech online and that these decisions should not be left up to tech CEOs. I mean, even here in the U. S air our conceptual limits to free speech, the classic formula of not shouting fire in a crowded theater, for example, But it is really complicated. How do other democracies regulate? What ends up on social media in the U. S. Because of US laws, social media platforms air basically immune from being held legally responsible for what users post online. But that's not the case in other parts of the world, like in Europe and Germany, in particular, leads the way on legislation that cracks down on certain types of online speech. So in 2017, they passed this law that basically says That social media companies have 24 hours to remove hate speech or face huge fines. And now lawmakers in Germany are looking at what happened in the U. S on Capitol Hill last week and saying This is a reason why we need to strengthen this law. How would they strengthen it? Basically, they want social media companies to be required to when they see cases of hate speech and other criminal activity on their platforms to take that straight to the federal police in Germany so they can investigate. This is something German lawmakers were debating, adding to the law last year. It didn't pass because of privacy concerns. But it's interesting that now because of what Happened in the U. S. Some lawmakers in Germany are saying look clearly more needs to be done to deal with online speech before it escalates to real world physical violence. So going back of that German law you mentioned the one that was passed in 2017. What is deemed illegal denying the Holocaust hate speech against minorities. And these are things that Germany outlawed after World War two. And since 2017. They've applied these rules online to France. Also tried to pass a similar law last year, cracking down on some of the same things, but that was overturned by the courts there, interestingly enough because of free speech concerns, So that's one criticism of this kind of legislation. And then another criticism is that it deals with very narrowly defined hate speech, and not with things like disinformation, conspiracy theories, all the kind of problematic stuff that experts say helped lead to the capital Riot. Last week, right? That kind of disinformation conspiracy there. So what our country's doing to tackle that that seems to be really fundamental. Just last month, the European Commission came out with what's been described as a landmark set of proposals to require social media companies not just to do more to address hate speech and disinformation, but also to be much more transparent about what they're actually doing to deal with some of that in their platforms. Now they're years away from actually becoming law and being enforced. And until then, Ah, lot of this policing is going to be left up to the private companies themselves to do even in Europe, which again is considered to be well ahead of the U. S. Clearly something the U. S is going to have to take a lot more seriously. The world's Lydia Manta leader. Thank you very much. You're welcome, Marco.
