I was young and cute and so they. Were proposing to me and were petitioning with my lawyer to be able to marry me and save me, and then we would you know hoping I would take back to America once I was free kind of thing so I had going to court as a you know to be convicted of heroin smuggling, and I've got literally throngs of young men and mothers of young men.

There was there was an element of that, but it was not from from what I gathered. which you know, my my perspective I'm sure was skewed, but it was a lot of popularity. Who thought you know the American girl? She's so young and she's so innocent, and let's let's. And unless you had a family who was serving time for similar crimes, you are very sympathetic. Describe what what you were feeling and thinking when? You were thinking. I'm going to be in here the rest of my life. What what is what is that like well? When I when I was arrested, and I I heard from the that they weren't going to be able to get me extradited. I said well. Look. You have to get me out of here. I'M GONNA. Kill Myself.

Getting off a little friendly. Yeah, and so I. Just I want I was creeped out I. wanted to leave and and then when they sentenced to thirty years. is really knew that was going to happen a few days beforehand because they interrupted another drug case in the middle of its trial mid witness and A sentence of, thirty years because.

So they, they stopped this woman's hearing and charged her finish her life. She got up and it technically but. The president that the president so I knew I was, she came back to the good news. Bad News. And I was like what she goes well. Bad News is you're going to get life? The good news is I'm GONNA. Technically because I just had the precedent for you and it was in the middle of my hearings. She rule really said that to you. Did you kick her in the face?

Old Woman could barely lift your arm up. Ever had accused of killing a man who was thirty years old. She couldn't have done it. What what did that feel like? Being around. All of that all those sad stories it was, it was it was very humbling.

My, my life had a lot of crap in it, but it was not that kind of crap like not losing my family graph or not having no food on the table, and you know wrongly imprisoned and taken away from infants and having the women could only keep their kids to a certain age. Even the gentleman went taken to an orphanage, and the bureaucracy was impossible to get your kids out after that so even if they got out of jail, the chances of reuniting with their children was very remote and in.

Because authorities aren't going to help you so I had this just mechanism and like you know, someone asks when someone asks you. If you're okay, you just say yes. You can't trust them to do anything so I didn't go to counselors at school when I was being abused, because they would break up the family and I didn't tell people at the desk I'm being coerced.

Molestation can tell you it's. It's a weird thing. You want to be cute, you really. WanNa be cute in in recognized and appreciated, but then at the same time you hate yourself for being. For thinking about that and suddenly it's a bad thing. It's like you discover your POW power that you hate having, but it's powered on the less right and it's like. Is that what you like about me? Is that all the people I let me because I? Mean I I went on I to binge on facebook when I anyone else tells me I am sexy. I'M GONNA. Slap because I need more than sexy at this point and you know what a lot of men! I don't understand that the. Yes, women! Women want to be attractive with the THEY WANNA. Be More than that. They want to be recognized for their for their intelligence, their empathy or their sense of humor or something else. It's great to have the attractive thrown in as icing on the cake, but I think very few people want that to be the most important thing about them because it's going to change, you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA. Get Old, and that's not going to be there forever, right? The thing I love about you most is disappearing every day.

At the end of the of of her interview, you will hear her comeback. We pick up the interview again and it's worth sticking around for because it's very brave what she shares and and I think profound and. I'm just really grateful that that I have guests who? Are Willing To. Risk the judgment of other people to share what they believe. Is the truth and is coming from from their heart and. And what she said made total sense to me as well so also there's a friend of hers that she talks about in the podcast who, since passed away totally unrelated to her story, but because her friend was involved in drugs. Her family would prefer that. The friend's name wasn't mentioned, so you'll hear me. BLEEP her friend's name throughout the podcast before we get to the interview with with Lia as I told you there's a survey you can take.

Stimulants for it and she says that that aggravates her her anxiety To the question, do you share your feelings with anyone on a regular basis? She writes. Yes, but I don't know if it helps share my feelings because i. have this awful habit of never filtering out my thoughts ever and I'm pretty sure defense people a lot I'm surprised I have new. I'm surprised. I have a few friends than I do. Let's see. What else did she say? What are the most common negative thoughts you have? She writes always worried that people are just humoring me that they pretend to be okay with me, but in reality think I'm absurdly fucking strange. It's not their opinions that that would frighten me, but the fact that I am just so blind to it like an autistic retired I also consistently. Consistently think I'm huge than I'm wasting my education. Then I'm trying to play with the real smart people, but I'm actually pretty stupid and have only gotten as far as I haven't academia on a fluke Oh and my overwhelming body hair I'm constantly loathing.

She writes a digging into my legs with pins and tweezers i. hear, this is something Meth addicts do and my adhd. meds are a form of math, so make sense also eating too much procrastinating Oh and sitting on the toilet for hours waiting to poop because I'm not convinced I've pooped all I have for the day and then worried that my stomach is still building too much. Because of all the poop Oh my God, i. I can never get enough honesty. From. People like this another of behavior that that she says she She engages but but wish she didn't so much. She says masturbating a lot even though I live with my boyfriend and obsessively shopping only to return everything the next day. To the question, does anything 'cause? You feel ashamed She writes living in new. York City going to nyu on constantly consistently ashamed that I can't be as thin and toned. Is everyone around me?

She writes I'm pretty materialistic. Especially when I'm feeling pretty antisocial shop for clothes, always imagining how beautiful I will look, so I can go out in the world again. People like me I'm actually a poor college student and I engage in this all the time while my boyfriend is struggling to afford food. Does anything 'cause you feel angry. She writes I'm angry that my boyfriend wants to be a woman I don't care if he ever switches his dick for vagina, but I want to be metaphorical for girl in the relationship and I get so mad that he exhibits no sort of chivalry or protectiveness towards me ever. To the question, if there is a god order some of the things you would say to God, she writes I would thank him for blessing me with more than enough food clothing, etc, and access to good people and a great education, then I would apologize for wasting at all. And then to the question, do you have any comments or suggestions to make the podcast better, she says. I want to thank you. Actually for this podcast launched on I tunes just as I was hitting very very dark place in my life. was just awesome to hear about people who were once in that exact place, but we're now totally social and usually pretty happy. Inspirational Shit never includes the gritty gross details that your podcast does, and it does wonders for helping me relate as I've been picking myself up again.

I'm sure like with podcast. That's just like easy for you like I could talk to anyone in threes totally can But what they think is. There is good as their last accomplishment. It's kind of like in like a place. Kicker and football years go to jail last kick so it's like they accomplished like yes but instantly they feel like they must find that next thing that next thing because they fear that if others don't see their accomplishments why would they be loved and so they're always wanting others to see their compliment so they know that they have worth and value and that they're lovable but ultimately what they long to here is you are simply loved for being you. You don't have to accomplish you don't have to achieve. You're just loved that. Feel like if someone said that. That's what my therapist tells me because we talk about any agreement and we get into that too and she has told me like she always reminds me. Like you have to know that your loved for being you just for being who you are. It's not about your image because because I grew up as a dancer and performer. And I always was you know in the mirror next to all these girls and ballet class and wanting into like look a certain way and present myself a certain way and be on. Yeah and that was what I thought. Yeah you know in and we have to realize allies at these are hard wired thoughts you know as a personality but the there's the healthy all the way to the unhealthy fats and so we want to tap into. What is the healthy offi way of viewing my perception offer the world? Because we're not wanting you to stop being a three or to whatever type you are we're wanting you to be the absolute best because that's that's where your free and when you're for your actually tapping into the healthy aspects of many of the types of not all the types And so for you as a three to recognize. It's obviously obviously the achievements that you've done and will do are amazing and we don't WanNa stop that right but we want it to be at a place of freedom where you can exhale you can be at peace yes you can learn how to just be a human being versus a human doing right right as a but that is good goes so contrary to the hard wiring of the thought the process of a three. And that's why understand it and then to go against it. Though it super hard you'll find great freedom and that's all growth is hard right bowling. We press into do it. It's really good. Yeah so anyway. So that's type. I've been pressing into a for awhile. Okay yes okay type okay type. Four is a romantic individualist. And they fear being Emotionally cut off plane mundane defective and flawed. and He desire to be unique special and they're most authentic self so their core weaknesses embi and and this is where they feel that. There's something tragically flawed or missing inside them and others possess qualities that they lack. So think of as like. We're doing like my family and I were doing a puzzle for Christmas right and we're like all excited like we picked out a special puzzle. We're going to put together a Chevy one And so that's how it is for each of us. Let's say we're all puzzles in fours putting their puzzle together. I can't wait to show you the unique creative beautiful puzzle that they have inside but then they look at it and there's a big missing piece right in them at all and it's like oh it's defective and fly auto. Show anyone this you know but they look around. Everyone else's puzzles and everyone else's puzzles are complete and so the MVP. What they think is missing in them that others have now? There's not not anything missing but of course it feels so real and true what they long to. Here's your loved scene for exactly who you are special and unique and so for them to go against the grain rain to recognize knowing him special unique. There's nothing missing in me is so important for the type for the type. Five is the investigative thinker now. They fear being incompetent. I am knowledgeable. being depleted of their internal energy and resources and the desire to be knowledgeable capable insightful And have lots of wisdom and insight now. They're corey is address now avarice doesn't mean greedy with money which it normally does this. Is they feel that. They only have so so much. Inner Interactive Energy and that too much interaction with others will lead catastrophic depletion. So what they do is they cannot withhold themselves and pull back to basically ration out this energy resource so think of them as a cell phone battery that has been plugged in all night and I only have twenty to twenty percent battery life for the whole day to interact with others. Well if you only have twenty percent you're not gonna just be doing all the streaming of Netflix and all these things you're going to ration it out so you'll see that fives love. I love a lot of a line alone time to recharge. But when they're with people you're going to see some boundaries kind of okay. I can't do that. That's too much you see a lot of pushback and kind of withhold themselves because they fear this catastrophic depletion. I haven't met a lot of fives. uh-huh yeah there's I mean I would love to see like a real study on statistics so maybe in the future when there's more people understand it and actually type themselves correctly. We can't find that but I don't myself run into either but One reason they might be just right into themselves here right. So that's fair to here is your knees or not a problem now. The type six is the Guardian. They fear fear itself being blamed targeted physically abandoned alone but they also fear not having support security and guidance which is their core or desire now their core weakness or The passionate other teachers called the Ashland daily Sun is anxiety now. Everyone can be anxious. This isn't just for success during Zaidi comes from constantly trying to think and prevent worst-case scenarios negative outcomes. Now we're it really comes from from for them is that they have an inner committee. I didn't say this earlier but type. Ones have a one loud inner critic. That is berating them with all imperfections of the world and it sounds like the ones out out there looking for the imperfections. They don't come into a room like this and go. Oh that's wrong. That's wrong. The inner critic screams at them and berates them until it's fixed and so then that comes out which which is the whole resentment part that we talked about Nella six is on the other hand have an inner committee and Enter Committee is training in from all directions with all viewpoints. Like well. What about this did you think about that? Did you plan for this. What about that you know? And so it's Kinda like well. Which one do I listen to like? which path do I take? So they have a lot of 'em indecisiveness and self doubt Sevilla outside themselves for The truth whether it's in a person mentor belief system But they can also be very suspicious and so they struggle with anxiety of I will I know the right good path to keep safe and secure and to be guided now their core longing to hear you are safe and secure now type sevens are are entertaining optimist and they have lots of energy and they're kind of like tigger kind of bouncing around this. This is my boyfriend but okay so you this will really resume subdue the type seven's fear Having to deal with emotions and to be trapped to be deprived to not to be limited limited to not be able to go out and have a ton of fun though the drew almost of the world now their core desires to be fully satisfied and content. Putting never feel like now you. You wouldn't notice that sometimes from the outside but inside they struggle with a core weakness of gluttony. This isn't just about food though. They do love lots variety food. This is that they feel that. There's something gene missing inside like. There's an empty bucket in there that they have is insatiable desire to fill themselves up with experiences stimulation and fun that maybe fill it up enough. I will be satisfied content happy but think of it as having holes so they keep doing and going experiencing and it's like wait is still not fully okay. I'm GONNA keep going and and go. Everything's GonNa be fun and great but the key never feeling that satisfaction and so that's the struggle but the more their present and acc for the moment and see the blessings around them and just live in it the more they actually do feel satisfied and content. Now what they long to hear Is that you will be taking taking care of. Let's take a second who does not wanna find the best brands..

Former DOJ Official On Why She Thinks Domestic Terrorism Should Be A Federal Crime
"The man accused of stabbing people who were celebrating Hanukkah in New York this weekend has been charged with hate crimes New York governor Andrew Cuomo called the attack domestic terrorism he wants to see a new state law that makes domestic terrorism itself a crime federal law does define domestic terrorism but there are no criminal penalties for it someone who's been long arguing to make domestic terrorism a federal crime is merry McCord she was a former acting assistant Attorney General for national security under both president Obama and president trump she joins us now welcome I'm glad to be here also how is domestic terrorism currently defined under federal law well it's a actually defined almost identically to international terrorism that is a crime of violence under state or federal law so think things like murder assault with a dangerous weapon aggravated assault when done with the specific intent and that is the intent to intimidate or coerce a civilian population or influence the policy of government through intimidation or coercion and so the primary difference then is where the act occurred so if the act occurs overseas or even if occurs in the US but with a connection to overseas terrorist that's considered international so lay out the case briefly for why you think making domestic terrorism a federal crime would change the way it's prosecuted in the US so to be clear there are a suite of terrorism statutes in the federal criminal code and many of these would apply to terrorism occurring domestically but only in very specific circumstances such as when a weapon of mass destruction like a bomb or nuclear devices used or when the attack is on a US government official or government property in the case of a mass shooting or multiple stabbings like this weekend domestic terrorism would not apply that's right so when we're talking about a vehicle which sometimes we see such as entering unite the right rally in Charlottesville Virginia in twenty seventeen those criminal acts would not be chargeable as terrorism offenses if they were not linked to a foreign terrorist organization but let me ask I mean there are still other laws already on the books that punish the kinds of acts were talking about there are laws against murder there are hate crime laws firearms and explosives laws why are those current laws not enough you're absolutely right that when we're talking about crimes of violence as the predicate for any act of terrorism those crimes of violence already are illegal so it's not an issue of there not being effective prosecutions it's an issue of how do you drive resources toward prevention but if prevention or putting effort into prevention is part the problem isn't that just more of an issue of helping federal law enforcement agencies prioritize prevention efforts when it comes to say hate crimes are certainly some sort of read training and re organizing of how federal law enforcement approaches federal hate crimes is certainly an order and I very much support that it's just not the way it has been historically and hate crimes not all hate crimes are going to be a domestic terrorism crimes not all domestic terrorism crimes are going to be hate crimes and that's because some terrorism crimes are not based on race or religion or anything protected under the hate crimes they can be big based on anti government sentiment and other types of extremism the van diagram between domestic terrorism and hate crimes is not a perfect circle that's exactly right the main push back from a lot of civil liberties organizations against making domestic terrorism a federal crime is that there are real first amendment concerns here the concern that politics to get mixed up in this some Republicans for example were demanding that the F. B. I. investigate and tifa and that anti for should be labeled a terrorist organization so I think that it's a very valid concern that I share with many civil rights and civil liberties organizations and advocates that there needs to be oversight to ensure that law enforcement appropriately uses its resources in a way that corresponds to the threat so the threat right now is predominately from white supremacist or white nationalist violence so any new statute would need to come with oversight to ensure reporting to Congress and to the public of how the FBI is using its resources and is it using its resources in a way that matches up with where the threat is merry McCord is the legal director at Georgetown University Law Center institute for constitutional advocacy and protection thank you very much for joining us today it's my

"You know and then just say good things superheroes on this podcast eater need I got A. I've got a Tattoo John Choir here but the story arc of Tony Stark from the beginning to the end it. Just it's beautiful. I think if you could permit if you can allow NATO some places do this in their decade wrap the NC. You'd almost kinda count as one movie eighty or a singular piece even tone. It belongs which I think is not an unfair thing to do. And then there's a real argument for it to be if not a movie then certainly certainly one of the top ten defining things of the decade entertainment homeless up the decade. It's interesting because when you look at films and in particular that when you when you look back at particular decades the capture the anxieties in the values or at least like the aspirations nations of that decade and. I think it's interesting that in the in the two thousands though so I two thousand to two thousand ten Harry Potter was like the biggest filming filming. Harry Potter is sort of underdog story right like you know that was a decade of recession of Of uncertainty of you've of this awkwardness of sort of post nine. Eleven growing up. Why culturally and Harry Potter was sort of optimistic figure but you certainly one? That he was kind of his second. Guess himself he never knew. It seemed like the odds were always against his favor. Where the where the twenty you know the last decade were we're and it's interesting to think about the the emcee you in that light and like what does it represent? You know there's a certain swagger to those films right there's a certain self awareness you know there is irony. There's all these things that you could probably make a case that those movies beyond just their the their success excess had ideas wrapped up in them that You know a really underscored some of the the anxieties. This are I mean you look at a you look at the basic conflict between like after American iron man. What's the militarization of power right like interventionism? There's all these ideas that I think you could make a case like you could make pace for Harry Potter last decade that the issue was pretty representative of what we've been experiencing culturally. You know. There's a pretty interesting comparison between Tony Stark in Harry Potter. I mean both both their parents are gone right. They lost their parents. I guess Tony Newest parents of these young but when we meet Tony you know it's in the last movie. He goes back in time and meets. His Dad moves out for a while breath. And so both Harry. Tony have this issue with their dad. Did they sort of come to terms with towards the end. You know like there's this comparison but you're right Tony starts starts out on the tip top. He's now for he's rich right. He has all the money. He has everything what he doesn't have a reason. You know as Harry has nothing butter the reason right but they'll end up in the same place towards the end right like self listening give of themselves. I don't know that's a really interesting idea. Yeah though of how those two different franchises speak to the Era Korean right. I think you're right on. Yeah Our listeners send us Interesting I want to mention a couple. I know run along here. But there's a couple that our listeners. Ns that Nathan jumped out this decade Scott said and we've talked about some of these. He's but Scott particularly WANNA jump out to me is the podcast cereal which which I agree was formative Not only because of what he did for podcasting but the true crime genre and people's you know sort of care for the justice system. I feel the prison justice. Reform reform was huge for that. But but the two TV shows that Scott mentioned parks and REC which I totally agree. I think we've talked about before like I feel like that was a really important show for the era. But this one on I'm a big Fan of the show Nathan for you which was on comedy? Central had a brief run and it was sort of this hybrid prank show A reality show send up but also provided some really interesting commentary I feel like about consumerism about entertainment about Commercialism is super funny. And I feel like it's a show that could only exist in this era but it's too weird and to kind of on the nose. I don't feel like they will ever be another show like it. There was definitely another show before it. So you can make a case that even if it wasn't one of the best shows that certainly one that stood out tyler. Reading through some the listeners sent us was there anything that jumped out to you. The Nathan for you and digital media and that I think it was very there was a really great piece I should I may have. I may have actually re tweeted this piece so Surreal fans the real fans. Who Follow me on? Twitter may have already seen this one but Ethan Warren is a right while darkroom did a really great Take on Nathan for you. SORTA representative of the last decade in terms of representing the millennial Christopher economy sort of which I think is very very true and it was really well l.. Put on his part among other things are listed here. Lots of really lots of a really good stuff mad next year road. That's going to be on top of a lot of people's list. Obviously the same with spider verse of say Muslim of the the albums here.

I don't like the deep cut daft punk stuff. The snow they have a real love of the craft and And and I really appreciate how much how much time time good clearly clearly time love goes into I did I don't think it'd be seen anybody else listening they're Best TV that game.

Are you guys familiar relations. Oh Yeah yeah sure. You're right I am I you know I I. I've actually back. When I was a teenager I would listen to a record? Label called drive thru records of a delight. Kind of pop punky most off anyway. There was a folk duo on their cold steel train and that was like Jack Antonoff original band. I even like to stop back then but I got a chance to see. I've seen bleachers a handful of times live but I got to see them one time at a pretty intimate show. That was an after party at like Lollapalooza and we might as well have been in Madison Square Garden. 'cause they're playing with two. Two Drummers has this and John Mark I want to hear your your bleacher state because I feel it's interesting you said earlier that you you are expriencing fan because I feel like Jack Antonoff brings that big New Jersey kind of blue collar attitude to his music. What stands out to you about the bleachers records? Well I think and yes I agree with you. One hundred percent. He and string standard definitely like drawing from the same. Well there you know. Yeah and I think he's doing that on purpose to I think he sort of. I think Jack's pain Amish to you know to his upbringing but I love springsteen and I hear a lot of that influence but for me I think think his writing is just so well done like the hooks the melodies. I just like a lot of what he has to say. And I like that. He doesn't seem to take himself too seriously but he saying things that I think are kind of important in income love the way he has this person talking on every song the sounds like someone it wasn't born in America. You know I thought that was really cool and He seems a lot about home. You know and he's sort of wrestling with. I guess I mean this is what I hear. Maybe I'm hearing myself in his music. which is what people do? Maybe it's not talking about any of this but it seems like he's growing up and he's trying to like battle with like who he was and coming to terms with who he was but also who he is now and learn. And there's that time and you like you have this conflict you know but then there's a point of like you know what I it wasn't perfect but I still love who I was but I'm glad I'm who I am now you know and that's why that record or maybe that's just because I'm here in my life in his record but it felt like that's what's what's going on in that record and on top of it just the songs of just baller it so just listen to them like over and over again you know what I mean. What well He? He's become sort of a hired gun because he is such like they are ballers right or because they they have like this like real emphatic Like you know. Oh it's almost like. When he was riding he knows this is a great song and that's why he sort of become this hired gun here? He's written songs. He wrote about songs on nine hundred. Eighty nine or more on the Taylor swift record record which honestly No matter what people think of Taylor Swift I think is pretty good record from this decade he also wrote a bunch for Carly Rae Jepsen like he's he's hired fired by these bike popstars who come in and write these really catchy songs that have heart. Yeah I totally agree. I think he's he's one of the standout artists of the decade. Now I know you your big MC you guy and and you know movies are whether any films that jumped out to you. The last decade gave that that you know you look back on that were emblematic of the twenty tens. Well I think of injuries in game is like a really amazing example of the whole decade and it sort of rams up that sort of era of marvel the avengers you know but all of that happened most. Also that happened this decade. So I think that's that movie really like speaks to the to the entire decade and I just loved the movie like you know. I'm a huge fan so I'm sure you can find all kinds of problems with it. I mean superheroes are ridiculous you know they are but I I love it you know and then just say good things superheroes on this podcast eater need I got A. I've got a Tattoo John Choir here but.

"Graham coach a community designed to be a safe space for individuals to explore the program. I spoke to Beth about the game's popularity. Ocu- Larry some misconceptions about it and how her new book can help communities get a better understanding of just what it is. Here's part of my conversation with Steph accord. I think it's been really interesting to watch how quickly the any grand has exploded which is obviously good for people for you and people in your line of work too. Uh but I would imagine it comes with some challenges to because the bigger something gets the more Kinda shallower people's understanding sanity sometimes which probably creates a whole new set of challenges for you when you're talking to people about it. Yeah it sure. Does you know it's On one side. It's great that people WANNA learn about the Ingraham but like you said there's GonNa be a lot of people who get a taste of it But then don't really they know it and therefore commits use it and that can create a lot of harm for themselves and others in how they utilize the Graham plus in the can spread misinformation because they think they know it but they really don't because it's a very complex system so yeah there has been it's Kind of weaknesses. I guess in having wouldn't be so popular but I think that's just going to be true kind of anything. I know like when the Bible went into mass printing that was their fear. You know if if if everybody has the Bible in their hands than they could read it for themselves and do what they like with it And so it does it can dilute it but hopefully okay. We can get enough resources out there that hopefully it won't be diluted too much. Yeah Yeah what have you found to be some of the biggest misconception people have about the ideogram in have. We've got about correcting those. I think one of the biggest misconceptions that we hear a lot is that it's part of the Colt or Hits it's come or it's not biblical and it's like well I don't think any of the personality things out there are biblical my Myers Briggs Not Biblical So there's a lot of misunderstanding innocence of the Graham as a whole and you know who started it. What does that mean about it? And I think God really calls us to redeem all things One even ourselves you know we. Ourselves are centers and in Christ redeemed that for his own purposes and glory. As I think we can take this tool. It's an insightful tool and use it for his glory and so Oh with my husband have gone to four years of seminary and being in the Ministry for twenty years. Our whole focus has been to only the access and utilize the parts of the Graham that are beneficial to our own personal growth with God as part of that is reworking some of the language language and understanding of the program and putting it into our own words so that it fits accurately with theology. You're correct act way of understanding. A Gospel centered approach. And so that means that there might be some things that we've not focused on because it doesn't necessarily fully aligned with focusing on becoming more like Christ and so you know I I appreciate people's Concern we always want to be discerning. But I I think that that is a misconception that people can have that we've we strive really hard to show now. This could be an amazing tool. For understanding your your own heart to become more like Christ by surrendering depending on the Holy Spirit to work in and through. You WanNa talk to you a little bit about the actual collection. Come out here and if you'd have gone to all yet so It it's a different. Is it an even chance to to read alert. All be asking you all about it but but it's just put up into every type in which you co wrote with different people who are that actual time is that correct actually know so. Yep so the Any Room collection is all me But I do have the forward written by someone at that time. Okay okay that makes more sense. Yeah and so. It's really fencer like Ryan O'Neal who did all the integration songs he wrote type nine. Yes Chris Words. Words were the one for type eight so we really tried to ask people who are very well versed in their type to write the forward to Kinda give a perspective live from that type side but I wrote all nine books in. What's great is their twenty one day journals and I breakdown their personality into bite sized lessons in twenty one days It's to be inciteful simple easy digestible but also highly reflective and so we have after each day there's reflection questions and places to write. The great thing is is that every journal has the same topics for every day a common content throughout so what you're type by the way I forgot coming on as well. Okay well so we'll pretend you're eight nine I just pretend And so if you're eight nine nine in were reading the journals together as friends or in a small group or a Book Club or spouses or whatever it is we would be reading about the same content. So let's say you get to the day on wings they'll be common content wearing explaining what the wings czar in general but then I get into the type specific content so you would have your wings for type eight and mine would have type nine and then the reflection questions ends and so you and I on that same day ago. Hey what did you learn about your wings. What would it say? And here's what it said about me and this is what I learned and so it's going to be. Obviously you could do you by yourself. But it's also going to be a really great vehicle for all these Christians who are really excited about it to actually do something together and yet customized systemized for their type. What would you.

I don't really walk around with Turkey Greece all day. There's just no way there is no you feel like just a savage and I yes. That's the fun of eating a Turkey leg but I feel like after I attempted Turkey late. I feel like I need to shower after I feel like he goes now you know. I know I'm really weird about getting stuff on my hands too so I don't think I've done the Turkey leg a few years. I hate to get my hands dirty. That's so weird is option.

Legs are these Turkeys uh-huh then when you go to a medieval fair and a Turkey leg is like three feet long they did. They're bigger than my entire form and in the cartoons. Like if you're watching or something like that then just forget about it. You're talking about a brontosaurus leg. They get bigger and bigger depending on the context and Turkeys are medium. Sized birds like where there are these fares finding these turkeys like. That's like an ostrich leg. There's something fishy is an e Mu or something like something fishy is going on. I've never seen a Turkey in in in imagery I've ever seen in the wild but I've never seen a jerky and thought. Oh the at that.

You know against that <hes> after twenty twenty but i'm still not convinced and we'll have to see the election about what's gonna happen. I'm far more pessimistic in. I don't like to admit this but i'm far more pessimistic. Go in two thousand and thirteen and i think part of it is for good reason but i think that there is a huge chunk of this country. Maybe up to forty forty five percents that are that. Are you know <hes> they don't let trump but you know they.

I've had readers just reach out unsolicited to me and sent me emails. I said wow that was happening and i said i didn't predict trump now. That's a that's a unique phenomenon in its its own right but i get predict in many ways about <hes>. You know a country going off the rails. You know what could happen now now. The second book is it's really cutting close. I one reader a semi. Anybody said you know this book is pretty psychologically disturbing which i kept at the compliment <hes> because it's meant to shock you say i would. I'm saying this isn't what's going to happen. This is like an alternative. Give unit universe of what could happen you know with all the madness and i believe that we're closer than ever to country having some kind of split it won't be like a civil the war but i think we we are in the midst of a civil war and we don't quite see it yet and i think there's civil wars between sane and insane america and i think that the readers now that are reading this kind of see this and see what's happening so what i did. I created a different second in books for the second part of the real american saga in which there is a resistance as you as you must've seen in the book and you know they are fighting back against this because buoy who is now the leader of of a real america they slip and now the a new the old country is called u._s._a. Which is kind of <hes> stunned that this could happen and <hes> can. I read something from the buck kind of explains it sherry at least two yeah well. This is a this is one of my favorite characters who is <hes> you know ah penelope the psychic and she is she is the leader of the resistance and <hes> and what are the things that you know make sure unique is that she's not your typical <hes> resistance leader either politically or militarily. She's a con artist and has been oliver life but this is kind of a crazy time which requires crazy you know which requires you know <hes> <hes> off-the-wall solutions and so one of the things that happens is. I think it's in chapter three is that she meets with british agent who is trying to figure out what's going on a real america. These militias are taking over <hes> the order is is literally being either chills or exile and and <hes> you know and so he was right there in the middle of it she was running a a psychic salon right in the middle of the real america rebellion for instance southern california and so you know one of the <hes> you know one of the things that that i said that she says to the <hes> pretty pretty station is that this was different and people can see it coming. She's a transplant either way. She's a transplanted german who grew up in east germany and she saw odd. You know the the follows. The mall collapse it for country and so what she said to the british agent is this only only this was different. This was violent political pot that has been simmering for years seventy boiling over it never imagined anything could change as they community work control their your kids to soccer practices or cozied up nightly home with their digital toys. The crews were as clear as day can meet but i'm predisposed to detect political faster. I lived at these typically complacent. Americans students assume stability and democracy were given like oxygen by the time they paid attention. It was too late and so in that passage she's time explains how the country fell apart. People just could not see what was happening because they couldn't believe it. They didn't trust what they were hearing or. Just you know they just assume that what happened..

The intersection of construction is becoming perilously unknown right. Now yeah for sure so i want to dive into that but maybe we could start with just sort of a little bit of background about you.
