Whoever your chosen person is doesn't have to be the policymaker doesn't have to be the expert but there needs to be someone who's actually communicating the policy in a way that they are comfortable with it.

Having communicated effectively english and french then we gotta go out and start getting these Messages out to people who are new canadians and speak other languages. But even in in the core official languages we have not been clear. We have not been consistent. We have not had effective communicators. Actually doing the job of the communication

Writing a piece. That said i think the only way to save america the author who went by the name rebecca which is I guess abraham lincoln's only student him that he used throughout his life. Now the author says we need to separate america in order to save it that we should We should change the constitution such that. We still have one military and one overarching government. But we kinda let two groups of states govern themselves as they want and then hopefully we could come back. Together is his argument. And it's the it's the only way to save the situation because he says we're actually two countries already. We have fundamental disagreement so he sort of says separation But not total divorce with the hope of the couple of coming back together. And i thought that was an interesting thoughtful argument I think there's some problems with it but But it was very interesting and so we published it along with some others.

"matt you" Discussed on Ambition Radio
"Want to pursue and it's just a matter of making it work right and putting in the effort to to do it all and trying to i think goals are important but also just think that doing the work is just as important doing doing the work and just trying to keep yourself to. You know to say a couple of hours to work on something one thing. I should mention his even using something like meditation for ten minutes has really helped you know. Keep things in perspective for me when i feel completely bogged down with the amount of you know things that i want to accomplish in any given day whether it's in the morning or after lunch just something to kind of you know. Put your mind at ease for a little while. I like that. That's certainly been helpful off the these times. The balanced time to do that either but but but but meditation has certainly kind of eased. Some of the burdens. That i that i feel like other people. Do that's fantastic. I feel like i'm always just gonna fall asleep. So we'll we'll see if i can actually get a done good thing right. It's a big energy. Feel like yourself levitating. That means that you're making progress. Oh okay okay. So if i'm just floating from the ground and while i'm asleep it's still okay. Oh absolutely fantastic. All right i'm going to be guru here shortly. that's fantastic. What do you think is one of the things that you learned most about yourself between music and even the podcast too. I think i've become a better listener. After starting this podcast in in a lot of ways. I think really taking the time to just listen to other in the ways that people connect with music has kind of. I think it's in in some ways. It will help me be a better performer. So i don't really. I don't really know how to explain that but just to be unafraid. I think even to just be kind of a ten of to the room that you're applying to you know artists. Can you get a sense of you. Know what you know can work in a room and and and what may not be the better choice if you were so. I think being able to just kind of connect with people that way and then that can also help you determine a set list. As as well. I think i think those those two can you can kind of interrelate. I like that because then then you understand a little bit more and you can hopefully maybe translate into music to about just the different thoughts and feelings that people have when it comes to. What's important to them when it comes to music because everybody has a different look a different feel a different set of experiences that keep them attached to whatever music that they're talking about or whatever art form that they're talking about right so i think that's something that's really important to know that you know. Not everybody connects the same way and being able to listen to that and keep that in the in your mind will hopefully help you like what you said. Be about a performer. But possibly even down the road be a better overall songwriter. because now you're you're thinking you may not even be thinking about a constantly but it's just in the back of your mind at that point just ingrained to you because of all these conversations that you've had absolutely absolutely it's funny like how you know. Some people might connect to a lyric and nasa had them hook line and sinker on record other times. It's you know could be somebody's stage antics. You know that really just draw somebody be like i'm gonna follow this artist for the rest of my life. Yak has ego. that person has some serious bravado. And i really. I really dig that. That's great you know. Sometimes it's just kind of a random guitar tone that you know is just feels impossible to replicate as an artist and it's a asylum. It's a sign that you are trying to chase so young people like gear heads talk about music a certain way you know. Avid concert goers talk about you know that wave of emotion that happened you know during this one specific jam of a song about five and a half to six minutes in like everybody connects to it on a very different level. It's that these conversations are super fun to have because you know from a live music perspective and even from a recording perspective. Two things are always evolving and changing whether you're in the process of recording or whether you're you know rearranging asong alive setting on the fly things always happen and you know even in conversations like sometimes there might be just like a you know a thing that you want correct and you know sometimes that happens with musicians stage to. It's it's it's about how you recover like that or to make things enjoyable. Yeah or you go to school to learn how to record on tape and then everything goes out the window as soon as you get out of school out the window. What do you want to start. Start over. exact What do you think keeps you motivated the most keep pursuing music or the podcast keeps me motivated to keep pursuing music and the podcast. Well i haven't run out of things to say yet with my own music. So as long as i still have. You know ideas laying around whether they're on cassettes or on sheets of paper. I feel like. I'm still always chasing songs and for me. That's a good place to be. Just always feel like i have an opportunity to keep my mind limber conversely with this podcast just the ability to be. You know a hopefully entertaining conversationalist and give people you know a forum to to talk about some wonderful experience that changed their life in and just to be able to to honestly facilitate that and you know. Stay out of the way and be that good listener. That's that's something. That i i want to be and i also want to be a good listener and you know. Hopefully even teacher is expecting father too. So i think like having that ability you know especially to listen to people just like you know good musicians. Listen to other people that are in the band or people that they are collaborating with. Certainly just help me and just you know hopefully give me a good positive outlook on creativity and and just generally relating to other humans. that's fantastic. i think that's man. That's it okay..

"Cover are just based on you know a small little basis of song and see what happens. Ceecee how bay in the approach. They take whether it's reading the lyrics whether it's like listening to the actual acoustic demo and having some fun with it that way that was that was the challenge that you know that. I gave each artists that i reached out to. So fortunately they they all look cool and they're really fun representations of each of the songs that will get shared a singles. So that was. That was kinda cool. Some people worked in in deca posh. Some people worked in oil or pastels. It's some you know. Look a little bit more like they they worked with a a does on a computer Design program so everybody had their own kind of unique approach based on what they listen to so that was a that was a fun little creative exercise. That's fantastic. i'm looking forward. It so i think the the the coolest thing that i've seen recently and this was a few years back. I went to a san francisco comecon a few years ago and what they did. This comic book artist was also musician so they put inside the comic the notes that would be inside the music and if you were to follow along with the comic book you also were able to listen to the album at the same time and everything would be in perfect time and or you know as much perfect time as you can be because if you're reading too quickly you're not able to get the whole experience but having something like that where you have that visual representation of it as well as the auditory representation of it is amazing and then having those kind of coincide with each other and you don't think about that stuff sometimes and you you look at it and just everything's kind of lost in the either unfortunately where you know that that just piece of artwork that like what you're talking about where this is the cover art that you're going to have for. The singles is a direct representation and the direct interpretation of the songs like that is such a cool thing that i don't think a lot of people will put a hand together And also you know if you wanna get really hyper local or hyper independent about it. If you really you know say say the music may is something that you don't connect to as much but you really liked the artwork and you're really into painting or drawing or sculpting you might discover another artists that you hadn't heard of before that eight to right and you know if they say say they have an art gallery or they use instagram or something along those lines you might you know decide. Hey that might be a good thing to check out. I really care about this. Other artists work that type of thing. So i think you know the idea at least with this batch of music that i'm planning to record to also support other artists as well with with the podcast that you're doing. Are you looking at different ways to approach that with everything that's happening with the world say like the pandemic right and then plus the the music that you're doing and trying to balance that out between the podcast the music and your family. Are you looking at a different way to use digital tools or you're trying to maybe like with the approach. Are you looking at a different schedule. Or you're trying to like everything running and is that a conscious effort for you to do that. That's a loaded question and a great one. I think like many artists were were kind of taking it. Literally a month by month basis Not exactly sure. When the next time. I'll be out playing any shows. It could be eight or nine months from now depending on right. What kind of what kind of advance as there are in public health so for the time being. I'm really. I've been really honing in on this podcast for the past almost year. Now it started in august of last year. I've kind of gone on a relentless pace with that. I've literally released one new code every single week and having a child. Excuse me i in in likely in august definitely going to scale back for the time being it probably evolved from you know once a week to every two weeks and see how that how that shakes out to see if i can get on some sort of regular schedule because you know sleeping. Patterns will change 'em time time will change. Actually you know. Time to record and prepare. And reese research for different records that you know i might be unfamiliar with all definitely changed. So that that's also kind of the impetus to behind releasing singles. The attention spans are what they are with. You know casual or serious in listeners of music so to to stay in the conversation and released singles and to have something new to share. Seems like at least the optimal way for me to go about things at least for the time being. I wouldn't rule out you know releasing a full length of some sort. You know down the line but right now with the limited time that i have to balance everything and then contrast that with the lives of going to have you know after august just literally fly by the seat of my pants and keeping a running calendar and literally just allocated. Okay i can work on cover to cover for a couple of hours and then set it down and do some other things like my my passion and my creativity and my my want in desire to have conversations about music is never going to dwindle. Those episodes might just be. You know they'll happen every couple of weeks. So that's that's ultimately my goal. Luckily with this new material. That i i do have some other songs. That didn't make that recording session. And i'm always working on and and piecing things together anyways so i feel i feel good about where things are to. Just be able to release those songs. Continue in a working on some long-form interviews. That's the beautiful thing about a podcast. Is you know it's a place where you you know. You can kind of distract yourself and and guests to a degree from you. Know from crazy things that happened in the world anymore. So so yeah i. I'm really trying to strike a balance with everything and know still find times to be healthy and exercise and and everything. It's a it's a delicate balance but it's also you know a necessary evil to have to put the things that you are really passionate about from a creative point of view down. You know you're able to do them later on it's off right. That's the the whole the whole point of the show you know. That's i don't know how to balance it out normally. I don't know how to stay consistent with it and something that i struggle with all the time. I don't have all the responsibilities that you may have coming up. But i do like sleeping and i do like doing nothing and i do like playing video games and i like shutting my brain off and that makes it to where it's such a harder thing for me to stay motivated to do everything what like what you said that that conversation and that passion to talk about the stuff will never dwindle and i think i i like i like the way that you said that because it's it's always going to be in the back of your mind and it's always going to be something that you still.

"Bigger connection where it's really that face to face you can feel you can see you can smell. You can hear everything that's around you while the social media aspect of it and the internet aspect of it stuff like my space was great but everything gets kinda lost in the either if that makes sense. Oh absolutely i meyer people that can you know the decide to stream live shows on a on a semi regular basis i myself. I've been a little reluctant to do that. Because like you're talking about having that human connection face to face in the room that is so meaningful and you know people that can just you know. Churn up that kind of excitement to to sing in front of a computer screen. I mean kudos to you because it's really for me. It's really hard to just keep that that energy going in the same way you know that that you are used to in performing in a room so for now on writing and when the time comes to go out there and hopefully those venues will exists and people can continue to support them behind the scenes that you know that that's personally my my primary way of expressing myself in front of an audience. It's it's very difficult to do it in front. You know on instagram or facebook. Live or places like that. I mean there. There's some really really good ones as well like stage it but you still don't get the reaction that immediate reaction you don't get that reinforcement that what you're doing is a good or bad so you don't know what's a to fix you don't know what's hitting there's there's that emotional disconnect between you and the audience because you don't hear them you don't even hear like the glass clinking or someone talking over your song or anything like that right and it's funny. It's a benefit isn't it. Yeah yeah right. The lack of show talkers when you go out to see live music. You're not dealing with that anymore. You're listening to a stream that's already great but it it may. It might be missed. You never know might be Playing a showing me like oh man. I missed that one dude. That's just talking and talking and saw an. Yeah that's funny yeah i. I can't imagine how difficult it is to keep like what you said the energy level right. I think that's probably the biggest piece of it where people are somehow n- just intrinsically energetic enough to keep going and not having any kind of issues even if they're just going into a webcam and singing into that like guides that's mind boggling to me and the the fact that like comedians are doing that too is just insane to me like they're they're trying to do standup shows online through zoom call. And it's just like this is. This is ridiculous. No one's they might be laughing at home but they're they're not like this is weird. You have no idea if your landing a joke or not was just talking into the ether. And i guess that's that's why like everybody has done a podcast right that way. They can get their own their own dumb voice out there right like. That's that's why. I started mine so that that works it. I'm hoping i'm hoping that the world gets to a place where everything is is cool again. But i don't know i'm still a little nervous and we we can talk about. I want to talk a little bit more about your music. 'cause you're still doing stuff and so working on stuff. You said that you were writing stuff. Because you've you've had multiple albums come out right right. Yeah after a motorcycle breakfast. I i've a couple of ap's with a producer. Ted conifer downs savannah georgia Once called surely late the came out in two thousand sixteen and it was also recorded down at the fight. Torian with mitch. Easter and send with ted mitch. With vision hazy. Which was an ep that was released in two thousand seventeen so little bit of power pop little bit of kind of all countries. You know seems to be my my bailiwick. You know with those two he. Ps and then yeah right now. I'm i'm in the process of working on some new material. I was initially thinking of an ep. But i think i'm gonna go the singles route this time very cool. It makes it seems to make sense in my little universe because we don't know what's going to happen next with rice thing right and just to keep. I don't know just just feel like you. You you have something to say. Every couple of months could be an interesting approach right now. Yeah and i think. I think that also helps i. I will ask about like how you develop those connections here in a second but with the singles. I think it's interesting because you those those finished projects right there like each song is just that finished one. And then like what you're said you're you're able to kind of produce something every few months and keep people coming back possibly right and even if something is going on in your own life whether it's your work or whether it's you know having a kid possibly in your family right all of that is there but you're able to still get like your art isn't just in the background on the stove. Just like chilling right. You're able to still produce something and still get people interested in what you're doing and still able to kind of interact with that base if that makes sense over for sure and you mentioned the idea of having kids well. I am actually having a child relatively soon. So it's going to be an interesting balance as to how to keep music going and then also you know hopefully be a good dad at the same time right right. Yeah so. I mean as much as i would like to just keep things going and i think it's possible i'll just have to. You know just have to manage my time a little bit. And when when he's sleeping. Maybe i'll cut a little like acoustic demo of something in and store it away and and when the opportunity strikes to get back into a studio and and do something with it then i can the one thing i can tell you about my creative processes. I'm always thinking. I never throw anything away. I'm a pack rat. I keep i keep a lot of. I still tape record a lot of ideas. I never throw lyrics away like there might be something. I'm working on right now. That seems like it's going to be part of you know one song but then i look at the. You know lyrical fraser. Something and say to myself. That's a different song exactly. It's a completely different thing. let's just let's just move it over here for now and see what happens..
"matt you" Discussed on Ambition Radio
"Didn't get recorded an ns as colonel potter existed. I think you could probably go into the archives of my space and find something. So when i started this solo acoustic project i went extremely old school. I went back to that sort of tape recorder mode. That i took on when i was in high school. Sure i had. I had this like tapered like the sony. Tape recorder from the seventies work. Just press play. And i would cut ideas. I would cut demos that way and it would save them that way. Because i just i was sort of weirdly paranoid about just storing things on my desktop or something like that in some sort of digital way so i would just i would just collect these cassettes and just store these ideas and when i felt like i had a couple of good ideas as to where i wanted to go with some of these songs i would seek out. I was trying to figure out. Exactly what the landscape was like in terms of who some local producers were at the time josh and so this took me a couple of years between two thousand eight and two thousand eleven. I think i did something like really quick and dirty and i was like. Oh that's cool. I hadn't been in a proper recording studio at that point. This is fun and you know it. Dad helped me develop a base to get some early shows and whatnot whether they were like little clubs or or coffee shops like i had one or two. I don't want her tucson demo. That was really useful for that but i thought you know what i need something. That just sounds a little bit more rounded out. So i went to a couple of events to try to just meet some other musicians and hopefully meet some other producers to and at that in that period of time i learned relatively quick that iota club in cafe was just a breeding ground for artists. Yeah at that point. And so i wound up at the. I think there were a bunch of musicians. And there were a couple of producers that were congregating as part of a you know a a networking event and that word is sometimes a little cringe-worthy at times. But it was just you know maybe that maybe instead of networking maybe it was more of like a collective of people and in that collective i i wound up meeting a producer named dave mallon who who runs innovation station and he helped me cut very very cool kind of like primitive sounding five song. Ep that you know had my guitar vocals and a little bit djembe. Percussion in oregon so an and some piano as well so it was like it still. It felt very loose very bare bones. I got a lot of lot of mileage out. I think yeah. It's called motorcycle breakfast at it. Exists on the interwebs. I like that name. Motorcycle breakfast is cool. But what what. I was gonna say so for you. You're you're almost starting from scratch on everything because it's going from your college and your hometown because you're you're up in pennsylvania at though at those points and now you're interning in dc and then trying to build a music community around you in dc as well because you need to try to figure out what is actually. What exactly is actually out there that you can use as resources at that point right. Oh for sure yes totally. That's a daunting to do a new project as well as trying to do basically a new community slash city to right. Yeah and this was a total labor of love. I mean i'm. I'm still working at the international food information council and you know doing a lot of technical writing for for scientists and for members of the food industry at large. So this is the this whole musical project whether it was with colonel prouder potter or whether it was with this solo projects going under my real name. Yeah this was something that i was doing. You know essentially after school. You know like you'd muster up some hours in the day to to to rehearse and go back and listen to some demos or even like hop on the train and go to a place like iota here. Some live music before heading back home. So yeah i. I certainly was having a lot of fun. On an ad of the same token i probably was burning the candle at both ends to just about to to say burning the midnight oil to try to keep up with your passions while trying to also like live in a basically a brand new city for you too so i mean iota i feel like win. It was around is such a like a big mecca for those independent artists. That may may not be able to ever be replaced. I've i've been to. I oughta people times over the years and it's always such a. It was always such a warm and welcoming club and you could really see the passion that was built into basically every little nook and cranny and then on top of that just the talent of the musicians that are coming in and everybody basically like embracing Themselves i mean that was. That was such a really really awesome. Plays and it's very disappointing to kind of see the the overall machine kind of swallowed up and you know keep it from having the artists in there and i think they're turning into what condos or something something like that. Yeah it's it's really a shame. Yes take a i think is galaxy hut still there yet. I think red cross right across. Yeah that was that was such a mecca galaxy is still right there too and i'm sure that you experience it even more than i did because i just went in as a fan right and for me being able to see everything from the outside. It was amazing for you. Was that a catalyst for you to really be able to say. Oh i can do this with connections that around me and basically by myself to yes. It gave me the confidence to to try new things. If i had an idea you could count on going to a place like iota which not only was sounding room but like you mentioned a second ago really supportive really welcoming for people to just try stuff. If you had a new song. That in wednesday nights there was a really cool place to try it. I just i really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the warmth there just the way that that room could fill up on a wednesday. I mean when it was happening you could easily coun- on seventy eighty ninety people to show up on a random wednesday you know you could be on of a relatively unknown person. But then you had those open mic kind of would feel like real shows for you. You know if you performed well you might make a half a dozen fans or something like that. That will come. See you next wednesday so i thought it was just a really fun and organic place to grow as a musician and i miss those kinds of venues terribly in. Hopefully when this you know hopefully we can get back to doing that. Things that type of thing and creating with each other yeah. I doubt that would be the goal right. 'cause right now it. Everything feels so disjointed with everything. That's going on the world but you also have that that reality where these safe havens of kind of artistic expression are eventually going away as well and you have kind of that human interaction face to face. That has transitioned a lot to online as well and you may you may have seen this where it's a lot of no social media is is really the the biggest piece where you can kind of express yourself as well as try to connect with others but it's such ardor things to do rather than naturally like meeting someone and hearing everybody playing music and talking and and kind of that that.

You might even get to hear me gush about one of my favorite bands on a future episode as always please rate in review on apple podcast. Follow me on. Spotify and subscribe on google play. Or however you get your podcast. Thank you for everything. Here's a show enjoy and even play music for a while right. yeah Where she would begin. Let's go back to. When i was fifteen years old and i was playing baseball in a kind of a teenager league so it. Was you know midget league containers and twilight sought. But i think this was right around teens. Fourteen or fifteen years old and there is a local music store where i grew up in south central. Pennsylvania called casualties and they outfitted most of the musical equipment that was being used in elementary middle and high school bands and the occasional. You know people that decided to start their own bands or projects. Or what have you and during that baseball season ahead friend of mine who somehow miraculously conned my mom and dad into purchasing bass guitar for my birthday and it all started with a it was a it was a pd fury and that was complemented with a tv. Basic sixties of sixty watt a up and. I apparently at that time. I kind of looked the part as somebody that needs to belong to a band and my friend kind of did the heavy lifting and made sure that my parents figured out a way to put a little money aside and give me a really kick ass bass guitar and that really kind of launched my sort of Rock and roll world. Sure yeah even though you were forced into. Did you even think about playing before he was like. Hey you should get A base not really. I i was it was. It was interesting i was more. I was leaning more towards. Gosh lean more towards jazz and a little love classical. 'cause i was primarily a saxophone player for several years before that i mean there was always kind of rock and roll music in the background but i was out of. That's that's somebody else's trip. That's not really mind right now. I need to just kind of stick with saxophone. But then i realized that my gosh she knows saxophone. Cz are becoming a little bit more ubiquitous in in pop music was like maybe i could do. This may be. Maybe we'll see. I just kind of cast that ideas side but my friend. Jeff certainly a sealed the deal a couple of years later. Was that also around the time that like sky was coming back to the horns and the i guess it's alternative scott. I don't know what you would think like mighty mighty boss owns and stuff like that. Probably when the ninety boston's getting their start. This would have been more along the lines of like george harrison's cloud nine when realizing that saxophone was you know getting back into popular culture or popular music is so kind of late eighties ish. Gotcha okay yeah doubt that makes sense. I i liked the fact that he just like forced you into playing music with him. Why was it the base just because he needed a bass player. And you're like yeah. I can figure this out. Yeah it was really that simple. He needed you know he had. He found a drummer. He had a a lead guitar player. He himself was writing lyrics and was playing. Some rhythm like really kind of like a the'real sort of like you know really cool rhythm guitar but then they just needed something to round out the rhythm section and he and i had been you know were friends for a couple of years and you know he just kind of took a look at me one day when i was playing shortstop and said hey do you want to be in a band and then you know we just got to talking on the bench when it was our turn to bat and okay whoa handling. Do we make this work so literally. After that one ballgame he approached my mom and dad and little did. I know that my my sort of musical fortune was about the change. You know because. I really didn't have much of an interest in getting involved too much with rock music right. I would've i would've. I felt like i would appreciate it later on but in terms of actually picking up a guitar. That's really where it began to me. That's really interesting. Because i don't know if i would ever have like the balls enough as a kid to be like. Hey first of all let me try to convince my friend to just pick up an instrument that he has no idea about but also convinced his parents to buy it for him. Yeah you gotta. Unique personality as opposed at. Jeff was somebody that you know. He was very. He was an extremely verbose person at the right times and he was very persuasive for sure. I can see that you make a hell of a salesman. I'm sure so when when you start playing with them you started out with base. And i assume you had a couple of different high school bands that you're into into in terms in. Yes yeah playing right. Yeah so this so this first band was. I think it was untitled. I think there were a couple of working. Names like red feet and the chairs just sort of relatively innocuous names but then later on about a year and a half later i joined a project called the generators and the generators was. Kinda this like psychedelic. Blues sorta band. I was still playing bass still playing that Tv fury base. But and i decided you know what i needed to add. You know something into my proverbial arsenal. So i decided to with my own money where i was working at an amusement park. Purchase a fender p bass. It was beautiful. it was sunburst. I loved it and that really that that particular sound from the p base really became lake. The right vehicle for that particular project called the generators. The generators was kind of a second blues thing with a little bit of bluegrass influence in there. So we were. We were covering songs by o neil young the grateful dead sonny boy williamson some traditional folk stuff to jimmy cliff. We really all over the place right because we were we were just like a bunch of hippies and then after that you know are are named the generators which was named after he was a shimmy auto biography or something like that. We decided to morph into tall g. Would which if you can appreciate allison wonderland. You know exactly where alice travels to the movie. Yeah would fit way better for the sound that you're doing because the generator. Sound almost like a fifties or sixties rock band or like a a first generation punk band. You would just think that it would have a little bit more rock and roll to it rather than like the psychedelic blues e aspect of it just from the name but i like i like the the name consciousness. Part of saying yeah. This is what we're doing and we should probably get like weird even with with that just like the reference in it. I like the idea. Yeah it's funny. We really practiced a lot in my basement. And you know kudos to my parents for putting up with us for the better part of two years and we. It was fun because we used to tape record all of our practices just so we got a sense of you know what we were doing where we were headed and all that good stuff and you know. We practiced for a couple of talent shows and variety shows. We you know we did a a really cool benefit show for four diamonds and it was fun like getting a chance to play for the student. Body is several hundred people and our very last gig before we kind of all went our separate ways by separate ways. We all decided that you know college was probably something that we would. We should really thoughtfully consider the last time we played it was it was. It was almost like we were attributing ourself. In some ways we covered jefferson airplane's white rabbit. Seis yeah and we had to supply lyrics ahead of time to make sure there were no you know vulgar words or anything like that and i really don't i really don't think that the principal read this leyritz very carefully or you know. Perhaps he. he forgot that's was.

Count if bay because you have you have the houses. You have the bridges to kind of look down on the bay, and then you have all watery area on. It's just it's a lovely breezy spot, and it's home as well as what I come from, so I feel very. Proud to be Welsh and proud of myself, if I get to run around the barrage. I haven't enough for a long time, so you inspired me to do that since Meka, end that Saints Really Nice, it sounds lovely, and and the last question as well. And how would you describe a runner's high? It's definitely is sensitive achievement, however failure. No, however long. You do because I definitely think that. Of, the rush of run is that you dread it slightly. Just before him. Maybe it's just me. Maybe this is my rush with everything, light life, TV or anything I dread the build up I love the presence of the moment and the relief. The have afterwards is such a high, so maybe it's just that is just getting through. But they defecated a feeling of accomplishment. The satisfaction of starting and finishing something is great and I suppose the dolphins scientific reason behind all would be behind it, but. To really put into words, it's a it's a lovely.

Considering this is obviously a recorded during the end part may be of lockdown, so I mean the new normal, or whatever that is is is actually working out. Fine I feel like I, ve kept on top of work, etc and. Personally during his time, I've kind of realized. What's actually really important to me? which has been lovely? Okay and it is in the important stuff. Have you been looking after yourself as well?

I've definitely not that exercises. I wanted so during lockdown. Obviously, we've had plenty of time to do. This I've been on so many walks. I saw it running again. Actually some spring training which I haven't done. Twenty or Twenty years I used to be big into my sprinting when I was younger with Lettuce Club. Rugby football, especially, it's handy to be fast, so I really have. been given the up slow down, but at the same time realize what works for me when it comes to keep fresh of mind and body, as amazing isn't I think lockdown when we look back will be at what an amazing opportunity that was to just really get fair and be healthy I mean a lot of people. The first month of kind of were doing all role. You said you were working loads. I was definitely being a lot lazier eating the wrong foods, maybe having a glass of wine far too often quickly. You realize that actually this is the one chance you get to do something and make a difference. It's you have any interruptions from side really.

You know I think now with the stock market crashing. There's so many similarities. I'm seeing to OA when I was working at Morgan Stanley. Which was a pretty depressing time and I sort of bogged in two thousand ten and Quinn Twenty. Eleven and you know What would you say to someone today? Who is like you know what I've had it like? I WANNA take a gap year or is it as easy as it was when you did it. You know thirteen years ago. I mean I think it's the easiest time travel in fact. I think it's in some ways to easy because you go into hassles and everyone's on their phone in there watching their netflixing like you know these kids don't know you know I. He sustained hostels. That had no WI FI or computers. And you know you know smartphones and he walked with hostile hostile. Do you have attempt to look back on those as to good old days for me. Those are the guys that but if you talk to someone challenge before me. They'll tell me I had it really e- easy and they'll look back. We all look back in the days But I think given the rise of points Budget Airlines I mean you can take are easier to Hawaii now Given the the whole growth is sharing economy. I and the just the sheer volume of information. You can find on the Internet as well as the APPS in the Google maps inside Israel. Easy to just go find information Find ways to save money and get cheap flights and accommodation. And you know now like I'm in Paris I don't have a lot of money. What can I do for free? You You Google. That a hundred thousand websites. We'll tell you all the things to do so much information. Yeah now one of the you know. There's a ton of other travel bloggers and people in the travel space and you are a true leader in the space and what two years ago three years ago? You launched travel. Khan tell us a little bit about why you did that. And what it is a job at a media conference that so like professional development for media travel industry and I mean that like rather than blogger journalist or a podcast or or photographer. I wanted something that was similar to how doctors and lawyers nurses and teachers all have like professional development. The GO SOMEWHERE THEY LEARN. Haida be better than their career. It gets trying to forget We don't really have that in the travel space. There's a lot of media conferences but none that's like education right whereas like okay. You're the boss right. You send your journalists to go to these writing workshops so they can develop their writing skills and you know accountants like continuing education or whatever We don't really have that and so I want something that really focused on certain business of travel that top people practical skills to advance their career. Not just how to get like free press chips you'll get drunk and kill started wordpress. Karnal tea is rex. Tillerson T. Backs is still a thing. they are in also Louisiana. This year You know they've been around for a while and I think you know when the G. becks is a competitor. I think there's room for everybody I think one of the things that I always feel. They missed the boat on parties and why I created Travel Congress. They really start to appeal to people who had been in for a really long time. So people stop coming back. And that's really where I wanted from travel con with something that would appeal to me. You know Scott ever really impressive list of people that go. Yeah and I also wanted to bring tea party to at his house to bring in people outside of the travel space so we're not just learning from each other. We're learning from experts in other industries who could impart wisdom that we can apply into shop space in order. I love actually saint from your travel condom Boston which I wasn't able to go to but I followed voraciously on social media like the diversity to that you had stayed. I want to commend you for that. Like there's so many diverse voices and travel and I just love Dat. That's obviously important to you. And the conference in mega very conscious effort that every time I look at the speaker lists if it looks a little too one way satellite go diversify it travel is I mean that travel is international to it. You know. It's there is such thing as a trout. There's no one travel blogger type. Speaking of I mean I know you've got a lot of friends in the industry. Who Do you think in? Twenty twenty s creating quality travel blogging content in not just blogging. Obviously another so many different channels but you know for people listening who wanted like follow some of the more indie writers were really rising investing in their content You know selling is not like who's been around for a while but I really like is Kristin Addis be my travel news.

I just love seeing the hustle like yeah. He's all entrepreneurs finding their own niche speaking to an audience. You don't need to have five million instagram followers to have an impact you know and I think like across the industry. There's just a lot of Glows Grey or Necas Gray.

So if you travel hustling You know and One caller is like really showcasing. That like it's not just like a white industry You know I think too many like the. Oh Jeez our you know western white people and I think it's as important to bring diversity moistens because travel itself is all about learning from people like yourself awesome. I could talk to you all day. I know we have to wrap up. But let's just talk about. I- philanthropic efforts because to those who are given the opportunity to have such a platform. I think it's so important to look beyond you know. Just what yes. We help people travel but like there's also a broader population of people that we need to be You know giving back to and and to those of us who have been given so much in the ability to see this world which most people were never get a chance to tell me about your philanthropic efforts because I know you're so passionate about them. Yeah we have a community charity called flight. The fund isn't for learning and youth travel education. Fight is less of a mouthful But it Gives GRANTS OUT TO High School and the states So busy funds like an educational trip so teachers apply and they are like. I wanted to take my science class to learn about the rain. Forests of Costa Rica Sorta we fund those trips For communities that Have a lot of low income students and kids that are on like title nine school lunches? You know You know just communities that just don't have the ability how do you source these communities? And so we have a board and they go through the applications and then there's a final three and then kind of vote on them I kind of go along with what the board wants. Accents are more involved in the day to day. But you know the goal. This just get kids who I mean. Most of the kids don't have passports. Their parents don't have passports when things you don't really think about lug it right. We we ran the trip From these kids from Atlanta and they showed up and trash bags didn't have luggage and you're like Oh yeah like yeah like you just think yeah you put in your luggage like I don't have nuggets. 'cause I've they've never been on a trip so we had we not luggage for the kids if they don't have it be y'all think of something that small for you because we've been so privileged like my parents have piles of suitcases. They don't use And so little things like that. Go along long way and you know these. We have a a community Effort like they have to give back in some way on their chips and there's always like volunteer aspect to every trip however cleaning other local students. Kids you know the right by and know about this You know I. I think I have it bad. And and they sort of gaining perspective. We had these kids From Role Montana Real Montana Go to Guatemala El either parents didn't want them to you. Know go to Mexico Or worried about that when I look at the government says Oh gang violence and you get to actual Guatemala in. Of course he's GonNa be bad areas everywhere and you realize how unbelievable of Guatemala is and so beautiful and he's such a shame that it gets you know people have this mindset of Central America as dangerous right and and these kids are coming from a really rural place and Montana who parents and community like his like Mexico. And there's you know coming you know there's all this violence and and they got kids go there and like you know it's not what you see on the news I I realized I come from a real progress plates but then like you see people without running water. Wow It gives a lot of perspective and now they come back and can tell their community like. Hey what you see on the news. It's not it's not what Guatemalans really like and so doing that when people are trying to put a physical walls. I China knockdown them. That's amazing on that note. We'd like to at points guy.

"What else am I missing here? I mean I Have Conference Travel Kahn. Which and the charity and charity. Okay let's take a step back first so tell us your story. How did you you know we have somewhat similar backgrounds in that your corporate America so you were in corporate American? Had this wild idea that you wanted to travel yes. I worked at in healthcare up in Boston after college and You know you have a case in time and as a responsible adult Sunday society told me I was I educational time so I went on twitter. Costa Rica felt I ever really went traveling especially about myself and the crazes ever got was like a cruise around the Caribbean with my family. Did YOU GROW UP IN BOSTON? Yup and so I just fell in love with travel on that trip. I was like this is amazing. You do whatever you want people around on like the master of my day. There's so much possibility near new. I people love vacations so I wanna back the following year. I went to Thailand with the buddy. And that's where I met the backpacker right in the met back before and resist that you went to Thailand. The first night this is two thousand five actually went right after this Nami. So that was an interesting experience to Tore them off a cliff at that point or was it starting to really come back. We had to supposed to go on that side of the country But we had a switch but walking around. Yeah Kosan Road. Burrell the Backpackers are you just saw. Signs of like missing missing missing Large containers for donations for the Red Cross which people just donate money and it was Us really depressed period like Ev. You can tell there was a weight on the country. People didn't really have as much weren't as excited about things But there I met all these travelers for the first time and I just love the the sense of like quitting your job and traveling in the world and by that time I had known I wasn't going into healthcare has getting an MBA Wants to go into marketing for like for noble energy companies. So I thought all right. Well I'll I'll go back. I'll quit my job. I hate Finished my degree and take a when these gap years all these kids are taken and so in two thousand six went away for supposed to be twelve months and jeff saying wait for eighteen. Came back because I I WANNA go back traveling Screw this and I was talking to your first month because I know a lot of people. Listening and people always fantasize. Let me get out of here like let me get leave the grind of the day to day and just live and Thailand. Because how much in twenty twenty you can live on Thailand for how much per day and you know on that minimal lifestyle. Yeah I mean you kid where I live there. If I spent two thousand bucks a month people were wise. You spent a lot of money So you can live there pretty well for like fifteen hundred hundred bucks my thang if you wanted to have like a typical ex-pat compromise. Josh however I mean a lot of people did you do that. You sold everything. Sold everything The car the computer. So you had you. You're like I'm going for twelve months and you had X. amount of money in the bank. Yeah I'd saved All my 401k. I took extra ships at work so I had saved thirty grand Between like three and a half years of work Lots of sixty hour weeks Because I just do overtime I had twenty for the trip in ten for when I came back. I went through all thirty because I stayed away longer So it was like thirty K. And eighteen months basically. Yeah and did you know a lot of people in the backpack world works jobs to help supplement to do that or I taught English for about eight months and Thailand. And so that gave me some extra money But at the time from the time I went away to the time I went to Australia. The Australian dollar really appreciate and value and you know so. That budget went out the window because I had budgeted at one you asked was a dollar thirty Australian then it became went to one and so that really just like thousands of dollars of savings just went disappeared in that exchange rate and it was a lot more expensive than I thought So a lot of money went to that and and partying in Europe too. But wait just tell me like I. I WANNA understand like the the day the day of back like talk me through once you get into your groove and thank you know or coastal or you know what is a typical day of like aback because every day. There's no such thing as a weekend right every day Saturday every day Saturday. Bring me through. What your typical day was like in that first year. Why wake up hung over Most ninety percent of the time I was in. Let's say were you really going out most nights of the week. Yeah backpacker lifestyles very alcohol. Fueled lifestyle So let's say I was in Europe. I Florence Right. So is an example. You wake up to go sightsee. Get Free Walking tour. Find cheap eats She bottle wines me other travelers and sit around in the park. Maybe I'll see some museums at night. You either find more cheats or Cook. And then the hostile was doing an activity. He'd probably go do that or do you. Just get some booze and drinking the hassle and maybe go out And then you repeat that and then a couple of days later you'd pack up your bag. It say goodbye to your new friends And you get an a train or a bus in your neck city and you do that all over again. How long would you normally stay in one city? It would vary Depending on how much I liked it. I really like Milan so I left after one night. I loved Barcelona so I stay there for good week. on on that first trip and I really fell in love with Amsterdam and I am staying six weeks now And then I ended up. Living in Thailand loved it so much whereas Vietnam I didn't really have a great experience there that first time around so I was only there a couple of weeks And then there are places you wish you could stay longer by. You gotTa keep moving and you know. I think it's easy to Romanticize a lifestyle. But what are the downsides? I must get lonely like He. You get really good saying goodbye because every and listening the reason that such a party lifestyle is. It's always somebody the first day and somebody's last so on the first day. Everyone's like I'm new. Let's go like explore. They're excited and since last day. You're like I'm really sorry I have to go home. Let's go out and commiserate So you get a lot of that But you know so you get good at saying goodbye. it's it's tough picking up every like three days in reinventing the wheel year in a new city nine. Solo. That whole first eighteen months. Or did you have people join you None of my friends from home. Join me But you would meet people and they're going your same way and you know ended up traveling with These two British guys all around Thailand for about a month Do you still talk to them. Yeah Yeah not as often. You know it's been fifteen years. I can only imagine what your facebook feed is like like just from polly's Carryanne over the earth and Muslim. My facebook feed assists people have met. Yeah And so is tough you. He landed in a new city. Now have to figure out. How do I get my you know in the in the lands pre glad? Yeah how you get to a hostile. I don't even know if it's GonNa have a bed open now Highway deal with the language to make friends all over again after. Forget where e- exchange the money Trigger laundry and then three days later four days later you probably doing oliver again. Have you ever had to spend the night on the street yet? But I slept in the airports No I've never had to spend the night on the street. So it's two thousand seven now you come back after eighteen months away. Two Thousand Eight Eight When did you start blogging April two thousand eight Is what launched my website. I started at the end nomadic Matt. What's pretty self explanatory? But was there a whole process in choosing name? Well being cheeky. I kind of wanted to do math as the world. 'cause I just sort of like that name and then my friend talked me out of it because it was between Matt does the World Anti Passions too. Yeah right so. I like that sort of like at this time. I was just like toying with websites. He's like now known pneumatic. Matt has fewer connotation and were you following other travel bloggers at that point but at that point in time there were really only a handful of people out there and I only found them when I started my blog I had ZANGA. You're missing do I never have woman remember? So I have one of those like Zanga blogs and there are some people in my space I followed but they're very few travel bloggers at the time. I think when I I found like I like fifteen or so that I started like connect with back. Then I'm very very new dogging just in general new back to two thousand eight. Nomadic MATT launches. What do you remember your first blog post yet? It was Hyphen around the world ticket. That brings us On the backpacking. Liceo flights are probably our biggest expense. So what you know. And I know you're appoints guy yourself What were you in? The in the points gained back then is just all about budget airlines. When you're in the hostile world backpack and back. Then I didn't really know about the points world. I mean I I had cast in some city. Thank you points for My flight to Europe so I I use that instead of cash in no better. Well they didn't have any transporters time I mean that was it. It wasn't really until I came home. I and then I started reading blogs I found like The boring area phones and I was like. Oh why I should do this more. But it's mostly cheap flights and Finding the flight deals it was easier out the time because two thousand neighbors. Also the economic crash You could find a lot and she flights not too similar to where we are today. No you're actually one of our last visitors ever off not ever. That's a little bleak last visitors in the G. Office. Most of our employees today are empty as we struggle with the crow virus spread throughout the city. Every time I look at my phone there's a new development and airlines are in a potentially even worse than after nine eleven. How it's just about. It really hit demand but so you start blogging in an OA. When did you first realize wait? This is starting to take off in the community was building. I would say I I went and on this as like a full-time Gig in two thousand ten at that time all I wanted to keep travelling is zero intention of making this any career. I just wanted to freelance right to pay for my next hostile. You know it was all about. I don't want to go back to corporate America I don't want to be in office. How long can I stretch this trip? I'm so I moved back to Thailand a tightening list. Where'd you live in Thailand Back And then moved to Taiwan for a bit because I have only ever flown through Taiwan. An everyone all my father's like you have to go great so high up on my list of outages there. A few weeks ago is really really great. beautiful country. Hello Kitty plenty. I flew China Airlines owner. So no hello. Kitty plan sadly But the listeners an Eva Airlines has eight has hello Kitty planes with Hello Kitty on the liver in in in the flight. I am floated but putting it on top of my to us. Make Taiwan the top of your to do us so I lived there for a while and During that time I I kind of focused on the website but I built a lot of Google specific sites like that were designed to drink high. Seo and get people to Click on ads and because back then you could really manipulate the search results. Simon I ended website on the grow corn there coin in my entire life. I just paid someone to do it. These ads do you still remember some your tips on how to grow corn. No I mean I would just create any topic that had already been indexed and just get the traffic and monetize. It gives you that sense and I mean I knew guys making fifty k. A month just on this stuff I had one on. I Change Beagles Pigs Keeping a turtles alive. I mean you can't do. You still have any random domains I I have up till about like two thousand eleven and then reigning big. Yeah how to change your Beagle and back. Then you've got really curious specific domains right so it would literally the domain would be highly trained. Your Beagle how to grow corn. Yeah And I find that. So Funny Oh yeah so I I learned a lot about Ally marketing through that time. And then I. I moved back a bit to the pneumatic Matt website. As I took those lessons in a lot of CEO Stephan starting making more and started to find the US. I know this is a lot better. my my mentor. At the time. These guys are teaching me in an Martin will like why dealing with these stupid sites. You have a website that people humans actually want to subject. You actually know. Don't build this builds up that Proper Day as I was like. Yeah you're right. I don't really care about from corn I like travel and so I went back to that and that was determined and ten and It just focused on that in and just took off from there and then so that site so you know you're making money monetize ing you know throughout the years you know and then the book. When was your first book? I started writing books in two thousand nine But my first published book was two thousand..

"Welcome to the sort of talking points. I'm your host frying Kelly and two day. We're talking to one of the old. She travel bloggers. Don't believe me while if you google how to become a full time travel blogger. His website is the number one search result. Which tells you he's source anyway. We've got pneumatic maths. Aka Matthew kept nece here with us today to discuss all things travel the travel lifestyle and something. I'm not an expert. At budget trump matt. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks for having me I. I think I think it'd be interesting watching you in the hostile. You know my first time in a hospital. First and last actually. I've stayed in hostels twice when I was in college. We went to a Ireland. Right around Saint Patrick's Day for spring break. We had found two hundred fifty dollar airfare from Pittsburgh Tha Dublin and we stayed at it was actually decent hostile in Dublin. It was like a party. Hostile right near What's what's The neighborhood all. We're all the bars every bar. Temple Bar My bad hostile experience was in Paris at the peace and love hospice. Hostel Actually passed it recently when I was traveling through the Ariza. Oh my it's a bus in the past and I had a very Thursday they're eight and in eastern European was the three of us in this room and There was some language barriers and Some body odor barriers as well and and of course. Needless say I did not pass. The shower did not pass. Tvd shower tests. I think I had to contorts myself but yeah I mean they're small for me. Sometimes Mike Half Your size so matt you've been in the travel game for a long time. We're going to get into your story how you got but do you still. You're successful. You run a great website. Nomadic MATT DOT COM. Do you still stay in. Hostels all the time I say private runs now. I'm not doing dorms. But I love hostels you know I just. I traveled to meet people. And if I'm not traveling for work I like to be around other travelers so I find awesome the private room and I stay there and even if I am just there for a couple of days and I don't really get to interact with them as much as possible. I like the energy and the vibe and just kind of makes me feel a lot better than just being alone in a hotel room. So what what are the best ways to research hostels? 'cause there's obviously varying hostels right. There's like Roach just like there are hotels are crummy hotels and an awesome hostels. Like what are the tips on finding a really fun quality hostile? I always look at the reviews on hostile world Because travellers tens day a lot of hospitals so the average review is usually pretty accurate. I I like hostels with But organized tours and activities to me. That's a key component. You have a lot of hostels. These days like generator. Saint Christopher's even Free and that are just sort of like hotels for backpackers that four hundred rooms Tour groups go in there. They'll really organiz activities in hospitals all about the community and the atmosphere creates. And so I. I think it's important to find a hostile that we host lots of events. We take you out. We show you around. You know we we get people to interact with each other. What how much hostels go for these days like? I guess it depends obviously where you're going so let's just start with Europe. You're in Paris like what is a a decent you know. Explain to me. How hostile pricing works? Because frankly it's been over a decade. Yeah obviously the the cheaper ones are dirtier and thoughts out our bed or bedbugs. Real big deal with hostels. I mean they are at fancy hotels as well so I'm sure. But is it a real issue on hostile communicate? It's less common than you think because Hostels are hyper aware of it. And so they're always cleaning beds and they're always Taking precautions against it. Obviously the the crappier the hassle bus they care but is such a cute issue that all the good houses are really focused on minimizing that and in the twelve years. Now where are we in? Fourteen years the backpacking in hassles. I've only seen bedbugs once and it was in a hostel in Cambodia But you know I'm pricing. Your average dorm in Europe is highly twenty euros for like something. That's like twelve beds and then the smaller you get. It can go up to thirty thirty five euros. Especially if it's a popular hostile and the city like When my favorite hostels define Pagan Amsterdam and now it's like thirty five dollars a night to stay there. It's really expensive So expensive for dorm room. Yeah a private room is usually around eighty To one hundred euros which at that price it. It's not you can get a hotel or an AIRBNB. That's about the same thing so usually i. I say they're simply because I want the community. Yeah it's less about the price more depending on. I think there's a stereotype about hostels. It's young backpackers wild single to people. Do couple say hostels to like. I've seen couples. I've seen people that are my grandparents AIDS. I I you see everybody in between just like there's a hotel everybody there's a hostile forever by the there are definitely Cardi hassles that catered to the eighteen year olds. Who just want us to get drunk? But there are hostels for tour groups School groups people who just want cycle families So you know that's one of the things you look for in the reviews ways demographic of of most of us will come on and say and they're like description like come here. Just get drunk. You know like skip. Yeah tell me. Your your wildest family friendly this is a family. Friendly podcast Hostile Eddie like really crazy stories or super interesting. I got one so Kirstin from the blonde broad and I were in Barcelona. I made her stay in a hostel and It's I have. I've never named the hostile but it's a well known party one and so we got a dorm room. And there's these Brazilian guys in there and yet they're just getting drunk all the time and our last night there. I got woken up by this giant. Knock on the door and nobody was answering so I finally woke up and answered it when the Brazilian guys who was like a private room or we were in a dorm. Oh six bed. Dorm Room I met her debuted on the door at night. Will they lock you out of your key? You have key So we have gone skeet so I let him in and I go back bays like sorry. Sorry sorry not smell like. Why is the smell wise? It smells like Shit. Oh and I come to realize. Oh that's because they're shit on my hand and then I turned on the light and I realized the L. A. doorknob. Oh the Brazilian guy had shit himself in his bed ran to the bathroom leaving a trail. Oh must have wiped off because there is on the hand knob and then locked himself out and I had been the fortunate one to answer the door the only other people who was Nikkei Stan Two girls and the guidance friend so one of those imagine the screams of one of the girls had opened the thing he looks at me and he's like it wasn't make now's like who else could it be. It was Kirstin and encouraged him. We love you and he's like I just. I was like the trailers right to your bed so I go wash my hands you know. I watched the DOORKNOB. I washed my hands twenty thousand times. You change rooms at this point. I mean we're getting like two hours but will when I got back to the dorm were you able to go back to bed No but when I got back to the dorm his bed was in the hallway and he had wiped up the floor but he was sleeping on a mattress and to this day. I cannot figure out where that matches came from because all the germs are locked but he managed to find the mattress. It's wasn't my mattress. Something tells me this might not have been his first time pulling the style so when we wake up and I tell Carson the story. She's like no way that happened. No Way and like there's no transcendent. Wake up from the smell in the room. He wiped it up pretty fast but so all the all of us have curtains so I had grabbed the carton with my like poop covered hand and there were like Poop streaks. I was like Oh here. Here's the proof and seed as like we have to get out of the hospital today and we actually went to the w after that point extreme at WSB pretty Nice Yeah Matt. You're selling me on hostels up until that story but No I'm sure I'm I'm not a SNOB. Wa I mean. I'm a SNOB. Because you know I have to stay nice hotels for work but But I know I know a lot of friends who do hostels and it makes sense like especially if you're GONNA go out and explore city like why waste so much money if you're on a limited budget on a bed when you can go out and spend it on experiencing life and everything so I totally. I'm not dissing really really nice like luxury. Hospitals that are basically just being B.'s You Know Martin Fixings He. Oh Great. Shower is private bathrooms. I mean Busy his Mama's shelter like just one notch above a haas. Is it like it's a hotel right? But it's kind of like a communal hotel like have you ever stated a Mama shelter. I know that name Cohen like I don't Istanbul. They're always have rooftops and community and it's generally cheaper hotels party vibe. I always feel like it's like could be like a a cross between. There's there's a lot like hostels have really got a lot nicer over. The years as more millennials have traveled answered demanded. Better Amenities allowed the dorms. Now if it's new Hasso a are basically Japanese pods like he have like a carton for privacy. There's a light A power outlet. So like you're Kinda in closed off from people and let's talk about points to any hostile chains offer points like hotels new. I wish if I could do anything.

"matt you" Discussed on The Atheist Experience
"Matt John longtime first time. Caller, welcome. I was calling to ask that. Yeah. Take you tasks on something cool as fiftieth birthday. So in the past. I've heard you say there's nothing that religion accomplishes. That can't be accomplished by secular means I I'm not sure if anyone has taken a test on that I've pointed it out, but it's very specific in that. There's nothing real in true that can only be accomplished by religion because you could accomplish it through a secular lie or something along those lines. But where am I wrong? Okay. Well, I guess that might kind of answer this dilemma, but I was going with the I kind of agree with that. And almost every circumstance, but there's one that I really couldn't think of a retort switcher toss it on the security camera in the sky dilemma, how would you secularly? You just did he people you just did you could have a lie about a security camera in the sky. That's a a lie that is functionally identical to sky daddy watching. You know, I I guess that is the second station. Yeah. The other thing is what you're really asking. Here is that there is within religion this notion that because you're constantly being observed and judged by God that this encourages people to behave morally, correct? Except that it doesn't because religious people are no more moral than anybody else. So clearly as a rather ineffective tool, and I would argue. As I would argue that without a lie. The secular solution, which would be more effective would be to get people to understand that their actions have consequences for themselves and others to develop a sense, of empathy. And it's not because somebody's watching and you might get caught. It's because this is the right thing to do. And once people actually understand that you wind up with a better world. It's like, you know, when when kids aren't under their parents thumb to they go out and do all kinds of terrible things. Well, it depends entirely on what the parents taught him. And if they taught him this carrot and stick we're always watching then they may be more prone to going out and doing terrible things. But if they gave them a sense, of empathy and understanding that, hey, how would you feel if this happened to you, and there are other people in the world? Now, maybe you've raised some decent kids. I definitely think that's mostly true for most people. But I think there are those people any circumstances that you have there's a certain percentage of the population. That's going to stretch the limits of whatever moral code that. They are raised even if. I believe in you know, but I think those I would think those people would stretch whether it was religiously based or non. Why on earth would Catholic ever need a confessional? If people actually were convinced that there was a God watching them all the time. Because what the confessional ends up doing is. Hey, I can go out and do all this stuff. And then I can come in. And okay, how many hill Mary's in our fathers? Do I have to say to get past this? And it's the reason that you know, the the joke about, you know, Catholic recognize Baptists are going to have an in Baptist. Don't recognize each other in the liquor store. If they thought God was actually watching all the time. It's only when they're reminded of this that that it's guilt mechanism and far better than giving people guilt mechanism, especially guilt about being a normal human being who you masturbated. You bet your ass. I did it was awesome. Why are you trying to say that's a bad thing? If you teach people that is a normal part of human behavior and win and where they should do it like in the privacy of their room with a consenting party are on their own rather than out on the street. Well, you got no problems. I guess that makes sense cool. Well, shoot I thought I was going to take the task for real on something. But I guess I'll have to find something better..
