"To follow your curiosity where we explore the inner workings of the creative process. I'm your host nancy northern hey there i am back with another creative pep talk and this time i have something a little bit different In the last week. I've had the unusual and unexpected experience of going just a little bit viral on tiktok. I read a poem. Tuesday evening and i. I had seen it tuesday morning in a rub resin newsletter and it just hit me so hard that i had to share it and in case you have not seen it on tiktok. Read it for you supposedly. It's by a poet named mustafa. Abraham who's gypsum except that we're not really sure about that from the discussion in the comments on my talk post so take that with a grain of salt says. May you never be the reason why someone who loved to sing doesn't anymore or why someone who dressed so uniquely now wears playing clothing or why someone who always spoke so excitedly about their dreams is now silent about them. May you never be the reason someone gave up on a part of themselves because you were demotivating non appreciative hypercritical or even worse sarcastic about it as i said on tiktok this hit me because i am that person in that first line i gave up on singing for a longtime not in choirs but by myself I mean i've talked about my stagefright on here before but it's really only in the last few months. I've started experimenting with doing duet videos on. Tiktok where i can find somebody to play the accompaniment and i can sing with it and have a little fun for a minute and throw it out there. Which the first time i did it was terrifying now not so much anymore. Which is really encouraging. But anyway the response to that video of just. That poem on tiktok has been astonishing to me. It's not as viral as a lot of people on tiktok manage to go on a regular basis but it still is way beyond the usual for me especially as pretty much a newbie on talk and what really struck me looking at. The comments on tiktok were the number of people who not only related. Because i knew if that poem hit me that way there had to be lots of other people that would feel the same way about it but who could name. Who did this to them. Who said something who made them feel less than who was sarcastic about all of the things they loved and just totally blew out that inner light to you know. In some cases it was a relationship a lot of cases. It was parents to their kids or teachers to their kids. One person mentioned an mfa program and boy did. I have no trouble believing that because so many mfa programs at least in writing. I don't know about other disciplines can be so focused on you know you either kill or be killed in a workshop that they're incredibly destructive and i'm so grateful that mine was not like that at all it was in fact quite the opposite but whatever the cause was so many people responded immediately saying this was my ex. This was my teacher. This was my mother. This was whoever and then there were people who didn't know what had happened or how seemed not to have ever put it together until they heard the poem and all the sudden they realized. Hey you know what. I used to love doing this thing and i haven't done it in decades because of a comment that somebody made to me. It's heartbreaking because you never wanna feel like you're alone but you also don't really want to realize just how much heartache there is in the world that there are so many other people who feel the pain that you felt yourself it's comforting and upsetting all at the same time but my real response to that aside from. I wanna help anybody. Who's in that position to get those parts of themselves. Bring them back to life. Because you can do it. I know because i've been doing it. And i'm going to be working on a couple of things that i'll i'll be in touch about nell in the near future but until then what i really want to say to anybody. Who's in that position whether it's you or somebody else that you know who needs to hear it is that you matter and the things that you love matter and i know when somebody said that to me a couple years ago. I thought that was the stupidest thing i've ever heard. Of course i matter. What are you talking about. And it wasn't until. I heard myself say to myself well. But that's okay because i don't matter that i thought that was a little more true than i realized. And you know until you not only understand that you matter but start to act on it and start to say. Hey you know what. I don't care if you don't like my crazy collection. I love my crazy hot collection. And i'm wearing them and what you think about. It doesn't matter to me because i matter more. It's hard to get anywhere else. So if you have found yourself giving up on things that you love or or just not not being as present for yourself as you could be. Maybe letting other people have a little bit too much. Say in what you do with your life or how you do your life. I would encourage you to just remind yourself once or twice a day. I matter and as long as the thing you want to do is not hurting somebody else. Then you should do it. Even if it's been decades and i don't mean you know book carnegie hall tomorrow night you know you're gonna wanna take little steps 'cause you're going to have to readjust and it's going to be a process but that's okay because every step you take in that process brings you a little bit more back to life and i'm here to tell you that the feeling for me of getting up and recording a song and putting it on tiktok or starting to take voice lessons which i've just done is amazing. I never would have guessed how much more alive that would make me feel but it really really does. So if you pursue those things because you love them because you matter and your important and what you love is important. I think you'll be surprised at what you discover but for now if anything else feels like too much just try reminding yourself a couple of times of day. I matter i'm matter i'm important. One i love is important and see what happens. We're gonna talk about this more if you don't follow me on tiktok. I'm on there as f. Y curiosity feel free. Post video there than i do on instagram.

"Hey everybody back with another little creative pep talk this week and i wanna start us off with a quote from one of my favorite actors. Hugh laurie who says it's a terrible thing. I think in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. Gets into some of what we've talked to already about already about perfectionism and permission a lot of us really really think that we have to wait until we're ready before we can do something. I agree with you. Laurie i don't think there's any such thing as ready i think ready is an illusion and ready often is an excuse that we make up because we don't feel confident about what we want to do. And we think we're going to fail and we're not even sure we were allowed and we're terrified. Terror is okay right. Fear is part of being human. Fear is what happens when you try something. New fear really means that you're growing unless you are being chased by the wild animal with horns and tusks and things. That's a different thing. But fear really is a part of growing and it's part of learning and if you're not ever scared then you're probably just kinda stagnating doing the same thing over and over and again on the hamster wheel which is not to say that you should be terrified all the time and that that's a good thing it's not a good thing but the belief that you have to be ready we'll keep you from doing anything but mentioned before that you know. I wouldn't have this podcast. If i waited until i was ready. I didn't have anything didn't have a microphone. I didn't have the first idea how to do a pie cast. I didn't even have a title. But i encountered someone. I knew. It'd be a fantastic interview. And i couldn't resist asking and i knew the worst thing that could happen was that he would say no and i would walk away with nothing less than i had in the first place. So where was the harm in asking. If i waited until i was ready to do these little creative pep talks which are not scripted at all as you can undoubtedly tell because every once in a while i tripped over myself i would not be doing them yet. I'm a writer. I was taught to go back and review everything over and over and over again and what. They've failed to tell you often enough. I suspect is that at some point. You just have to decide. You're done and as a result the process of going back and reviewing and knowing that it will never be perfect but still trying to make it perfect anyway. We'll turn you into a crazy perfectionist. At some point you just have to say. I'm done of done everything i can do here. And that's it. But if i were trying to script these episodes it would take me so much longer because i would want to go back through and do all of that so i decided you know what i don't wanna wait. Tell him ready. And there's merit to going and doing what comes off the top of my head. That's probably the really good stuff anyway. And i could always add more in a later and this is not about perfection. In fact if i'm going to tell everybody about the evils of perfectionism. I need to demonstrate the opposite of perfectionism myself so i'm not really ready by any conventional definition of ready and yet here we are and enough of you. Listen and contact me that. I know that i'm hitting the right notes. So it's all okay. It doesn't have to be perfect and you don't have to be ready. You don't have to have you know. Done eight million pages of research or you know. Learn every single thing. You could possibly learn about making bread before you try to make your very first loaf hall out the cookbook. You get out the ingredients you follow the instructions and if it comes out well fabulous. If it doesn't then you can go back and you can say we're what did i skip. What did i miss in this recipe. What did i do wrong and try again. It's not character flaw. Just means you experimented and something was a little bit off but you still did a thing. You still made the loaf of bread. You painted the painting. You've recorded the podcast. You did something that got you a little bit out of your comfort zone rather than waiting around until the mythical place of ready came up and you thought yes now i am fully prepared and i can go and do everything how who probably perfectly ready doesn't exist. Stop believing in ready. Ready is great if you're a medical doctor and you're performing surgery you know we all wanted vaccines for covid to be ready. Really ready for for most of the things that we do every day. There's absolutely no harm in jumping out and trying something whether you feel like you're ready or not an actually not waiting until you feel. Ready is a fabulous fabulous confidence builder. So if you've been waiting for the moment when ready came to. I invite you to decide. That ready is an illusion that lives only in your mind and that you don't need to wait for it to happen. You can do it now. Try it now. Start now start now. See what happens build on the good stuff. Learn how to leave out the stuff. That doesn't work so well. Every single process of learning and exploration and creativity has ever worked. Ever go take it and make it yours. If you have any questions for me. You can find me. Nancy at f- white curiosity dot com or on twitter instagram facebook and tumbler. And if you want to tell me how your experiment in not ready went. I would love to hear about it at the same address or on those same platforms and if you feel inspired and would like some extra help getting motivated in your particular case.

They say was this who they say was that, but they're not really a lot of reports about what happened. It's only the what the police are saying. Happens. And then then a lot of people are also talking about. She's not a victim of police violence, but Nina pop who is them a most recent I'm Black Trans Woman. Who was stabbed?

How to Cultivate Radical Body Love with Sonya Renee Taylor
"Hebert welcome to food sake I. AM Christy Harrison and I'm recording this on June second of twenty twenty, when there is a revolution happening for racial justice, and I'm so here for it because I believe that black lives matter and I support justice for George Floyd and Brianna Taylor and RB. And Tony mcdade and all the other black people who've had their lives taken from them over the years through the racist actions of police and vigilantes, and this racist murder has to stop so honor of the movement to defend black lives, and also in recognition of the fact that the Anti Diet Movement must also be an anti-racist movement because. Is Built on a foundation of racism as you heard in the episode with Sabrina strings that I reposted last week. This week. I wanted to re post another. With a brilliant black thinker and writer who speaks to some of the racial justice issues that are connected to this anti at work. This interviews from three years ago in July of twenty seven team, and it's with amazing writer and body Liberation Activists Sonya, Renee Taylor. Sonia has been instrumental in helping make the eating disorders and body positivity space, more aware of racism at its intersections with Diet Culture and eating disorders for a long time. She's been doing this work for many years I. I heard of her and. And saw her in two thousand fifteen when she was presenting at eating. Disorders Conference and so I want to honor her contribution to this work and to this field and make sure that you all go check out her work. Her website is Sonya. Renee Taylor Dot. com and she has a great book called. The body is not an apology that I. highly recommend reading as well. So in this interview that we did three years ago, we discussed why we need more radical body love in the world how to deal with weight gain and weight stigma while learning intuitive eating, what means stream body positivity get so wrong why understanding oppression and racism and intersecting identities is key to creating a world that's truly body positive and truly liberated how to navigate diet culture as a body acceptance activists how to begin to untangle internalized oppression, and so much more. It's a great conversation. I cannot wait to share it with you in just. Just a moment I'm not going to be answering listener question this week because I want to use this time to share some resources for folks who like me are still learning about anti-racism and working to do better, and that's not everyone listening. There are some folks here who are already so far into the anti-racist work and don't need these resources and are leading the way and I wanna thank you for doing that work. Especially, my black listeners and other listeners of color who've been on the front lines of this antiracism work for so long. So, thank you for your work. And to all my black listeners I wanNA send you empathy and compassion and support for what you're going through in this difficult time and descend solidarity, and to say that black lives matter and I'm with you in whatever way I can be. And for those of you, listening who have the unearned social privilege that comes with being white or white passing in this racist culture I wanNA. Call on you to start and or continue engaging in a practice of anti-racism in whatever way you can, because we truly cannot work for body liberation if we're not working for antiracism and I think on a Taylor does such a great job of explaining that her notion of radical body positivity that you'll hear about in a moment I am by. No means an expert on anti-racism as As I'm sure you can imagine right. I'm someone with white privilege. For the last several years I have been making a conscious effort to learn about anti-racism and to unlearn the racist culture that we're all born into, but you know I realized recently with this latest uprising that my anti-racist efforts had become a little passive had become not as active as I would like them to be and I'll talk more about that in the interview airing next week with Mony Melton because I, think she has some really important perspectives on that. Also I'm a white person with a lifetime of being steeped in this racist culture as so many of us are so I'll probably always be on learning, but I'm committed to making the effort and to listening to and learning from people who know way more about this stuff than I do. So from a perspective of someone who's very much still learning, I wanted to share a few resources that I've found helpful in my anti-racism education. I'm giving some sort of more general racism resources. Because as I'm recording this I don't know where the revolution will be. By the time you hear this episode I don't know what's going to be needed on the grounds. I wanted to just give you a few places to start people. People to follow to learn more get more information on social media and all that stuff so i. a couple of books that I love so you WanNa talk about race bypassed food site gassed Joma Aluko.

Hi I'm Miranda Kelly, and this is the scholars strategy network Snow Jargon. Each week. We discussed in American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon. In this archive episode Avi spoke with Professor Ashley Howard She's an assistant professor of African American history at the University of Iowa shears their conversation. Professor Howard. Thanks for coming on new jargon. Thank you for having me. Why did these protests happen? Well there's no one easy answer, but if I were to give an umbrella term to why they happen is that people feel that they are not receiving equal treatment under the law or in society, and they feel that all of the established means getting equal treatment have failed them. You mean in a way. They're sort of fed up and sick and tired, absolutely fed up in sick and tired I think this is something that people often forget when we think about not only the uprisings or the violent protests that happened in the past two or three years, but also looking historically that there are lots of preceding events that occur beforehand there. There were marches there protester letters of indignation. There were speeches given fun of City Councils, and for whatever reason those cries. Those grievances were gone unheeded unheard, and because of that people take to the streets, and it gets attention, and it's a very loud cry for help and for acknowledged professor. How can you just tell me about one protests from beginning to end? I would love so I'd like to start with kind of the protests. That's been nearest and dearest to my heart. It's the one that I've been researching the longest, and it also takes place in my hometown of Omaha. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six fourth of July weekend. There are a group of young people. In a parking lot of the Safeway Grocery store on North Twenty four straight. And this kind of an area where people congregate and it was. Evening. GOOP young people were setting off firefighters or firecrackers. A police officer comes. They begin to throw firecrackers at this police vehicle, the police kind of get scared and equipped takeoff they come back and forth, and this kind of sets it off people. See Police as indicative at this time of the state of unfair treatment, and oftentimes these police, public attractions are the catalysts for these uprisings, so over the course of three days young people go up and down North Twenty Fourth Street in the black enclave, and they set small fires. They break windows. They steal goods out of these stores, and the very much engaged in property, violence as protests, but meanwhile has this is going on. You have the mayor of the city Av Sorenson actually meeting with these youth activists listen to their grievances listening to what? What they feel is going on the community. And why love, starting off with Omaha is because Omaha had a long history, a civil rights activism prior to the nineteen sixty six engagement, and what was so notable is at the end double ACP, an urban league had been begging the state for years to open up an unemployment office on North, Twenty Fourth Street, and for years that desire for a building was met. You know was ignored, and by the end of the week of those three days of uprisings North Omaha got their unemployment office. While you know it's funny because I think the words are so charged when we think about uprisings or protests that end in violence that involves some aspect of violence on TV you hear about riots. Can you tell me a little bit about why you call them violent uprisings, and what you think of some of those other words? I mean in some ways. I think riot is pejorative, because it seems that when people use that term, it's divorced from the context in which people are participating at it seems as it's just want violence as a social and Beran, and not actually rooted in issues, and you don't violence approach as protests had along and storied history in the world, so if you think of Labor bread riots. In France in England. Through the green corn rebellion in the United States hey, mark an uprising working class people people without a lot of political capital engage in violent protests as a way to make their voices heard, and it seems that really in the nineteen sixties when blacks began to use this as a primary tactic in their. Repertoire of protest actions that really begins to be demonized in not lauded as you know the underclass kind of going up against those in power and so for me, I like to use rebellion or uprising, because I see these actions on a political. Continue up that you have protests, you have marches, you have demonstrations and at one end of that spectrum. Is this violent protests? It's not divorce from the other things that have come before, but it's the next step when those issues are continually ignore it. Well. It's interesting to think about the more recent violent protests in the context of that long longer history of protests and the longer history of civil rights and racial relations in the in the states as a white person and also somebody who's gone through sort of the standard His. You know I'm not a student history just like history and high school and all that sort of thing. Boy. Is there a difference in the way that we hear about the non violent protests. Martin Luther King. Gandhi all that sort of thing, and and then the way that Events like watts are described and certainly the way that the media today traits events like Ferguson. And there's a difference between how they were portrayed in the moment, and how they're remembered so watts south central l., A. Nineteen, sixty five. This is one of the first when the earliest large uprisings, and so there is the infamous McCone commission that came out where Ronald Reagan is referring to these folks as mad dogs and lawbreakers, and so even though they're pathologising to actions of the people who are engaging in this type of protests they. They. Still understand that it's rooted in politics. The kerner commission, which came out in nineteen, sixty eight, which looked at that. What's been called the long hot summer of nineteen, sixty seven, and that and that was summer with a whole bunch of protests and uprising. Something about that's correct. That was the deadliest summer and the one with the most amount so in the aggregate, the most amount of in terms of scale and scope the largest. Amount of uprisings, this is when you're and Detroit. Both happened and the Kerner Commission looked at this, and said that this is actually rooted in the fundamental desire to have full inclusion American Society and that it's this notion that had as Robert, focus and a scholar who wrote about this in the contemporary moment, said it's not a attempt to overrun America but to alert America. That's something is very wrong and I think when we look at it today, you know it seems. A bit as an anomaly, I at the time Ferguson has time of Baltimore. There was a black president. I think many of us had kind of been lulled into this false sense of security of a a sort of colorblind society. That racism was over. No longer are people using the end where no longer is. The clan burning crosses on people, Yar People's yards. It's over, but in many ways is racism became more systematic or structural, more institutional and hidden, and so these issues still exists is that people don't realize that they're
Rep. Matt Gaetz appears to threaten Michael Cohen on Twitter
"Reminds me of shook night, and I'm feeling I'm giving Matt gaetz too much credit. Okay. But to say, oh, yeah. You're gonna testify guess my beloved Donald Trump. Okay. By the way, about f- airs that Donald Trump had that Michael Cohen paid hush money for and you were talking about mistresses mcdade's. We're talking about mistresses you. Claim that you're a family values guy, you support a scumbag who cheated on his wife over and over again while she was pregnant and had adult star mistresses. I don't mind that. But you claim your tolerably against it a less. He's going to give tax cuts to your rich friends, and he's going to hate the same color people. You hate match Matt gaetz doing right now. So are you flexing your muscle for Trump hoping that he's going to give you some sort of promotion, maybe accept you into his administrate? Like, what are you doing? No, no was manly. Look, we talked about a strong political strategy all the time on the show, and what are people angling for a wire they actually leaving the administration. Sometimes how are they angling to get into the administration? No in Matt gaetz case. I think he he's a true shirt. So he likes authoritarian government, he likes Donald Trump has ignored the rule of law over and over again. So whenever you need. Political thug to co on TV in the back, Donald Trump. He wants to do it you Matt gaetz is your guy. So he steps in there with fervor with relish, and he's like, yeah. Michael cohen. Why don't we go after your family and show your wife? They'll problem she's about to have when you we tell her about your mistress. You wanna testify go in and do it you'd be perfect in a Brown shirt, Matt gaetz? So keep it real as to what you're doing. And if there was any Justice in America, they would definitely charge them with witness tampering. There's no reason in the world you would reveal that before he testifies no prosecutor in their right mind. No point in their right mind wouldn't reveal their strategy before the testimony. It makes no sense at all. There's only one reason you would say to head to make sure he doesn't testify well reporters did manage to. Catch Representative gates and ask him some questions about this. So let's hear what he has to say. On about his wife mentioning his father in law should be perceived as a threat absolutely not were witness testing, not witness tampering. And when witnesses come before congress, their truthfulness and veracity are in question, and we have the opportunity to test them. Listen, I don't threaten anybody. Michael Cohen threatens people if you go back and look at the phone conversations he's had with reporters. I think he told one reporter that what he was going to do to her. It was ethin- disgusting. So Michael Cohen by his own admission is a PHD in threats and intimidation all I'm doing is saying that someone is gonna come before the congress and continue their stream of lies that they ought to be prepared to set the four corners of those lies. We already know that Michael Cohen lies to congress. We already know that Michael Cohen allies to law enforcement. Now, we're going to find out if Michael Cohen lies to his own family. No, wait a minute.
