"Lovin action is listening to understand not to react all are welcome to come to the table and all are welcome to listen and God bless everyone. Welcome to another episode of the come to the table. Podcast is your host Sean McCoy and as many. Y'All know I served in the military. I think that mental health. I think I think all this stuff that we keep seeing and have been seeing now for a long time. There are some issues out there in the world that are exacerbated by certain situations like combat military experience. And then just life in general. I mean you don't have to go overseas to have trump out there and the real question that we have so often some of the some of the greatest challenges we have in our society is what do we do with the result of those challenges. How do we address mental health? It's it's an invisible wound. It's something we cannot see. It is so easy to mask one of the big criticisms of Church of course. And I've heard this all my life and I've seen it you walk in the door. How you doing man. I'm living the dream. I tell people all the time. It's one of my favorite things if you've known me for a long time if you will ask me how. I'm doing SAM living the dream in typically the response I get is bewildered like what what are you talking about. I think there's some things around that that I could talk about later. But that's not really the point to that so often times we mask. We don't talk about things. And there's a stigma. We had a Rachel Summers on here. While back you'll may remember who who is a stripper. And who's the whole point of the episode was give her a chance to talk around the stigmas associated with her industry. And what she does. There's so many stigmas that we have out there and one of them which is an industry specific which is human specific. Is this idea around. Mental health is idea around. Well if you can't hack it or you have a nervous breakdown or you're not toughing especially for in the back and say this and I'm not trying to be misogynistic or trying to say there's not stress on both sides relative to your gender but I would say especially in the United States in western culture and even across the world there is a predominance of expectation the for men to be so strong that we have no weaknesses not allow worthy be worthy pillar the foundation the rock to make things happen and and folks just isn't always the case it can it. Can you can take down the mightiest walls in terms of just these things and when it when they fall they fall hard. I think it's why the suicide rates are the way they are. I do believe it's why we just we just don't feel like we can talk about it. And so the essence of this show is to get out there and say nope no we are going to talk about it or can have people on. We're GONNA talk about the Tub- subjects or in a challenge these things and try to be another voice out there in the CEO voices because it's not just us trying to make these things happen and trying to make this for lack of a better word. Progress I don't know if that's the right word. I think is more of awareness understanding in this compassion. So what what do you do in the address with? What do you do when you're associated or confronted by this and so as as these things happen of this one comes from Lincoln so Charles Kirk is joining us today and he a post out there in a friend of mine? Mark Vos happened to like one of those little moments. I I say God moments that I got to see this post took a look in. This is what Charles wrote which is why he's here today. I'm going to read it in. His post on. Lincoln says being in the military in deploying multiple times. Back to back now. I'm a veteran with multiple deployments and sometimes the struggle is real looking back at my life before the military and looking at my life after the military. I would sit and wonder where me was. I felt lost in Numb. I didn't have the feelings I knew I should have. I blocked out everything. A loss family lost friends. I was self destructive. There was a point in time where I sat there on the side of the road and handcuffs surrounded by multiple cop cars while my wife Sob sitting in the car. I destroyed great jobs. I had my marriage I was alone and Felton. Nothing I say this to you if this is you. Fight the stigma and get help. I've been there. I still fight everything I said above but now I'm getting help. I'm not ashamed. Admit that reach out and talk. Don't wait until you destroyed everything you know in love. Get help as tag veteran Hashtag mental health. When I saw that you just pulled at my heart because it's so easy I'm going to say almost say this right. It's it's it's really easy to be on the victim side. It's really easy to go to those. That are suffering. We kind of know her at the end of this and say help them. But what about those that are going through their own trauma on the on the side of you want to call this perpetrator side or on the other side of the hip caused that cop car to be pulled over when we watch cops it becomes very easy? Are shows like that we know who the bad guys are. We know the good guys are we. Forget that that's a human being handcuffed on the ground in the backseat of that with those flashing lights and their life is changing at that moment and it becomes very easy to kind of say now. Justice is served. They're getting what they deserve. But we have no idea. Y'All we really really don't. We really really don't nine percent of time unless you know that you have no idea what brought them to that point and not what? They're feeling in that moment. And what do they need? At that moment I would argue. Take a page out of our friend. Bernard Brown's book. And what does she say isn't shame. Chamberlain help anybody all so when Charles put that out there. I just knew I had to talk to him. I knew I had to get him on here. And so with that so without further. Ado Charles Thank you so much man for him the courage to put that post out there and thank you so much for taking the time to come to the table on and and I like to say thank you so much for letting me come on in the story you know if I could if I could reach one. Individual guy is on the edge of getting. But it's not getting it then. I feel like you know we have completed something. We have helped one person and it doesn't necessarily have to be somebody statistically a veteran or better and that was in war on it can be anybody out there that from the people can get. Ptsd from from anything From being a rape victim to being robbed at gunpoint overnight point to being a better and more so you know like I said in my wink. Impose if you're there and you're out there and you need that help and you're on the fence. Go get help before you do. Destroy Everything that you know in love in your close to you amen. And that is our goal here so we just get one man. We're good brother. I agree totally so as I told you kind of go back and forth from a mood standpoint. The way we get things started here or some questions to get to know you Charles and getting a little bit about what you think and how you are so we have three you get to pick a number one through two thousand. I just got a new book. It's two thousand. Would you rather questions so give me a number one through two thousand and ask you a question and we'll do that three times? Nothing like being put on like. Oh where at one. Eight one eight seven. So are you a fan of hip hop fan by chance or actually.

"Means all the regular Friday features are coming up. We're going to go to Vic's picks coming up and we'll talk about the music that Vic's been listening to for this past week. We do that every Friday morning to get an update and then you big dummy, we'll do that. That's when we read a real news stories of real people doing real dumb stuff. And then we vote on who's the biggest dummy, I vote, Tom votes. And then the first person through at three one two nine eight one seven hundred gets to be the third vote and the deciding vote on who the dummy of the weakest. So that's you big dummy. And then straight out of context, that's when you listen to this radio station twenty four seven and you should because it's the best radio station in the world. You listen. Twenty four seven whenever anybody says something that you can pull out of context, and it sounds kind of dirty and it makes you giggle. Jot down the day. The time who said it and send it to Nick d. Show at gmaiLcom sin goes for Nikki show, spies. That's when you listen to this station, twenty four seven whenever anybody mentions me or the show in any capacity. We want to know about it. You become spy jot down the day. The time who said it, and send it to Nick de show a g mail dot com. And then, of course, we close out the morning as we do every Friday with fly James Friday. And if you wanna get your requests in for any Aren or funky stuff, three one two nine eight one seven two hundred three two nine eight one seven two hundred. Okay. So we're talking about being Chicagoans and saying what we want to say phrases that we love words that we exclusively use, and the fact that we refuse to call certain places by their real names. We mentioned that we never call Willis tower Willis tower. We call it Sears tower, cloud gate is the bean the expressways are not numbers, their names like the Stevenson or the Kennedy. Veto in Knicks? They call it Nick and veto because Nick was there more. That's just the way we are just the way we are in Chicago. And if you want to jump in with any of those words, phrases, and places that you don't pronounce correctly. It's three two nine one seven two hundred year Steve on WGN. Hi steve. I gotta realize transplanted in ninety six move down seat. But I still refer to the metro is a metro. There's no cabaret now horizon, this Rosemont horizon. Yeah. And bus routes. I just called I still call it a one fifty one the twenty to thirty six. I, I don't toss. I'll tell you something, though, Steve. It's not Camry metro anymore. No, no. It's not Kabri metro that's gone. It's just metro. Will use to reuse term cavalry in front of it. Well for a while it was called cabaret metro. I've had Joe Shanahan on the show and tell and to show my age. I still say, Camry metro and so Jones, like Joe's like, well, we know what generation, you're from because there was a certain time when it changed over to Kerry metro, but it's not anymore. It's just called metro. Okay. And plus the red lines, always going to be the Howard during well, I in the Brown line is the ravens would that's, that's the that's the that's the train that's the station that I grew up next to your up next to the ravens went stop on Addison. So, yeah. Okay. Thanks steve. If all that stuff makes sense. I mean, I've now you know, it's been such a long time since they've. You know they've switched over to the colors for the for the for the train lines that now I refer to it as but that was the ravens wood and the red line was the lake. Dan, Ryan, really? Yeah. Yeah. Makes me feel like you know, I know nothing really, you know, when, when did that switch do you all longtime longtime? But when I was when I when I was growing up when I lived on Addison, it was always the ravens would. Yeah. Lake. Dan, Ryan and ravens would. So there you go. See, here's Mary on WGN. Hi, mary. I. Marshall fields now called Macy's. Yeah. You still call it. Marshall, field's always will always. Oh. Yeah. Interesting program. I don't thinks Mary ever. Good morning. Thank you. Somebody else agrees with Mary. They're eight four seven area code says that store on State Street will always be Marshall field's not Macy's I still refer to for my grandmother's Sega. So refer to it as Marshall fields. Yes. She that she you could say Macy's and she's like I don't know what you're talking about the Marshall field's. It's also the Marshall field's the Macy's waters. Our place is also Marshall field but I mean it's, it's, it's, I remember man. Oh man. I remember when they came in when Macy's came in this place. This city was in an uproar was at mid to thousands, maybe early mid two thousand something like that. I want to say that I remember that. I remember it was such it was on the news. Literally every day until the final switch, it was a little bit after. And there were protesters. Yeah. There were literally on State Street. There were hundreds and hundreds of protestors out there saying that they didn't want. We don't want Macy's because Macy's associated with New York. We don't want anything from New York. You know, tainting State Street. This is not New York, Chicago. You know, it's bad enough were referred to as the second city, which we've embraced, by the way. You know, the whole second semi thing. I mean, I love the fact I love the fact that compass players changed their name to second city simply because it was they were tired of being compared to New York. And so, to think of as, as because of the Chicago fire as more of a triumphant thing like we were, you know, went down once but came back. Yeah. Second said, you know that's not that's not what that were. Jay says maybe he should've realized that when he was done at the building looked like a bean, not a cloud. That's on him. Not shy town. I love the being baby from Jay. But by the way, nobody from Chicago refers to this place, a shy town, I have to correct you show, shantytown rising. Right. Nobody refers to a showdown. There's this show on Showtime, which is a really good show called the shy. Nobody refers to this place as the shy if you're from Chicago, it's Chicago. Nobody says windy city, nobody says shy town Chateau is really the one that makes me nuts. I do like the city of big shoulders. That's fine. You know, but it's more of a kind of a Nelson all Grinstein thing, but shy nobody, nobody calls this city shy town, just like nobody from Chicago's to navy pier, unless relatives are in town. That's the only time anybody who anybody who's from Chicago doesn't go to navy pier. If you've got some relatives coming in or some tourists coming in you go. All right. We'll go to the navy pier. Mark the Bradman says, I'm always I always call where the SOX play Comiskey park. Yeah. That's on this list. PS maybe because of my Irish Scottish heritage. I also put the in front of everything. Though in front of everything. I didn't I I never even knew that, that was a thing until you brought an Tom so, but apparently Irish Scottish heritage they put in front of anything Cording to Mark VO Bradman. Yeah, he's not Mark Bradman. He's marked man to six two area code says there's no east side of the city. It's the lakefront. I think the people on the east side of the city would disagree with you on that. I've, I are you sure I've never really heard anybody. No. Well, I mean, I you know, there's a song called the night, Chicago died, and it refers down the east side, Chicago. No, that's from nuts. No, that's not from the night, Chicago died is from a different song. But it's the east side Chicago in our member, like going there is no e set of Chicago, essentially condoms, the lake but then I mentioned that on the air a few years ago, a bunch of years ago, I was like there's no east side of Chicago. Their lyrics are wrong. I got phone calls, and I got emails, angry letters. Absolutely from people who are like, yeah, I can. Tell you. Exactly. And they were giving me the borders of what the east side of Chicago is. So there are people from the from who's who live in that area who absolutely referred to it as okay? Okay. Here's John on WGN. Hi, john. I got you doing. Learn show. Thank you. They wanna just mention on you guys start. But, you know, Chicago things and stuff I grew up in the summer west side in Orland park, but. I notice myself kind of. Sometimes how I taught people pick up on some of the things I talked about, like I don't say over there anymore like an out of word. Now, just kind of let it roll and just over there. Yeah. New York thing and people see that. And they look at me and they're like, dude, you're from New York. And I know from New York. Yeah, I've actually had other people from other states like Georgia, and New York, and stuff like that. Look at me and talk to me and say you're from Chicago, aren't you? yeah i look at them like they got three ed's well it's about well it's interesting john because like we don't think we have an accent but we do when you go to when you go to other cities everybody from chicago has this certain sort of a twang in the way they talk we have a certain style of how we deliver the words and the words that we use the phrases that we use and when we go to other states in here different what we think are different you know i think people from i think people from new york don't realize that they have as much of an accent as they do especially well let me think people from boston definitely do but there are there are people from different parts of the world not the world but the different parts of the united states that clearly have a style or an accent or way of speaking and chicago certainly has a very distinctive chicago in certain distinctive way of speaking yeah because the role i you know there's similarities between real deep chicago accent and like a new york accent but it's there's things where they split off yeah yeah john thanks for the call three one nine one seven hundred You know, we're forever tainted by that damn super fans. SNL bill. Swear. Ski super fans. Yeah I still love it, though. I do too. I love you too..
