"In the event, we'll be right back, Megan bash him, don't go away. Wait for so long to make it real. Folks in our two, we have our divisive friend John Muir on the program. I told you if you're bad, we're going to punish you. We're going to bring John's mirac on the program. And some of you have been very, very bad indeed. But right now we talked to Megan basham, Megan, let's keep going. So Elon, I actually, I don't know if I said this on Twitter, but I thought to myself, it's kind of funny that Elon Musk took a poll, right? Because he's just playing games himself. He's very smart because who cares what people think. The fact of the matter is it's correct to bring back anybody on the planet. You know, anybody who wants a place on the platform, but he does this thing. He goes through the kabuki theater of asking people their opinion and everybody says yes, Trump should be brought back and he brings them back. Yeah, I love that. I loved just watching Elon Musk since he's taken over. I mean, I have to say, it's kind of terrible 'cause I have work I need to get done. And I keep checking Twitter to see what Elon Musk is saying. Because he does have, let's say, a fairly trumpian quality where he really knows how to goad the media. And that is maybe the most enjoyable part of his big Twitter takeover. You know, part of what he's done in addition to taking that poll is he posted that picture with him carrying the kitchen sink in, which was a reference to, look, we're throwing everything at this major transformation. We're going to be seeing at Twitter. And the reaction to that has been just hand wringing, gnashing of teeth, CBS announced that they were going to suspend their activity out of an abundance of caution. I don't really know what that meant. What did they think was going to happen to their news organization by tweeting? But what was hilarious? Was it lasted all of, I think, about a day and a half. As if anyone cares to follow CBS News on there. I mean, I'm sorry, but I just don't see that. Well, and it was a great one like a day and a half later when they were back. Elon Musk posted some brokeback not meme saying that they can't quit him. Which was pretty hilarious. And so he's just routinely done that sort of thing. But as the media has been demonizing him, what's flying under the radar is he is actually accomplishing with a third of the previous staff that Twitter had. He gutted the place, basically told everyone. If you're not willing to work, then you can leave and a lot of them did a lot were fired, but what's been great about it is he has actually accomplished some really phenomenal things. One of which is getting rid of and this is really important. The top three hashtags that have been used to traffic child pornography. So that was something that Twitter could have done in all of these years before Elon Musk took over. And for whatever reason, they did not make it a priority. So now you have sex abuse activists saying, this is tremendous. Elon Musk within a matter of a couple of weeks has come in and wiped out the top trending hashtags that are used by criminals and perverts to seek out child pornography. So I think that's a huge thing to celebrate. How is it possible? That Twitter did not do that before Elon Musk. I am a little bit astonished. Yeah, that's a really good question. And it's one that news outlets like CBS might be asking if they weren't so upset about Elon Musk doing things like allowing free speech to flourish and allowing former presidents and presidential candidates to come on their website. And actually doing the job that the news media should be doing and that is fostering robust public debate. They're not doing that. Elon Musk is. Well, look, we have to be clear and we'll keep you over into our two before we get to Johnson mirac so we continue this conversation. But we have to be clear folks. When people, whether it's Trump derangement syndrome, whatever you want to call it, when they want to focus on that, they are enabling satanic evil, like the trafficking of children. The idea that CBS would not be talking about this. The idea that somebody's not talking about this, they clearly don't care or are so blinded as to act as though they actually don't care about children being trafficked for sexual abuse. It's so wicked. It's hard to conceive of in any.
Megan Basham and Eric Unpack David French's Thoughts on Gay Marriage
"Thing to personally believe that marriage is between a man and a woman for life. That's the biblical view, right? Okay. So it's another thing to say that we could deal with that being messed with. In other words, if we have same sex marriage in our laws, it's not going to hurt anybody. There are people who believe that. But then there's the issue of religious liberty and the reason so many people oppose same sex marriage. It wasn't just because they believe that there can be no such thing. But that they said, once this becomes law, they're going to come after those who disagree. And that's exactly what we're seeing now. So when somebody like David French says that his views have evolved, in other words, he seems to be saying that, yes, legally, I side with those who would demonize this being established in our laws. I'm sorry that I, yes, I side with those who would demonize those who disagree with this, who will not in their Christian school or whatever institution in their businesses that they will not go along with this. So it seems to me that somebody like they've French would side against Jack Phillips of the masterpiece cake shop in Colorado, that he would say, you need to stuff it. I mean, it sounds like that from where we're from what you're saying. I mean, he's saying he does it. He's saying that he believes the legal protections are there for a Jack Phillips, except that we have seen Jack Phillips be harassed for years and years on end now. So I would argue, I don't know how robust those legal protections are. And at the same time, he doesn't seem to recognize that, look, this touches nonprofits in a very specific way. You could look at Christian adoption agencies, for instance, if they believe that a man and a woman is the best environment for raising children and want to limit their services to adopting children out to heterosexual couples, they should have that right. And this throws that into jeopardy. And
Megan Basham Discusses David French's About Turn on Marriage
"Megan, so let's keep going. We're talking about something that just happened. Thanks to these horrifically feckless Republican senators, 12 of them, God help us. What has been the evangelist, the reaction of some evangelicals now. By the way, the fact that you mentioned the southern Baptists and the U.S. Catholic bishops dissented said this was not good. That alone is amazing news because the U.S. Catholic bishops have been incredibly pathetic on a number of things. On this, they did it right. I'm thrilled to hear that. But what has been the word out there in the rest of evangelicalism? Well, I think there's been a lot of shock over in particular that David French piece. I assume your audience is probably pretty familiar with David French, but if you're not, he is a well-known evangelical pundit. He writes at the Atlantic. He has his own publication called the dispatch that he publishes with some other never trumpers. And he put out a piece yesterday that is shocking a lot of people, not only did he defend the respect for marriage act, the disrespect for marriage act. But what he did in this piece was essentially say, I have evolved on marriage and he made the argument that he still personally from a religious perspective believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. But he no longer believes that there's any reason in law to limit marriage to a man and woman. And basically said, I have changed my views legally. And the reason that's important is because I'm just going to lay out in my opinion. And I understand that there are different opinions. But the reason that we have marriage as a state recognized institution at all is not because the state needs to be in the business of blessing affection between individuals. The purpose of the state recognizing marriage is because it is the institution in which with a man and a woman, children are produced and it provides the best rearing for children the best development for children. I mean, we could go in the study after study. So it was interesting that David French did not deal with that at all in this piece. He just sort of made the argument that you hear from ostensibly Catholic politicians like Joe Biden like Nancy Pelosi saying, I am personally pro life, but I am not going to seek to defend my pro life views in law in any way. And so it's sort of astonishing for a Christian and a really well known Christian who speaks on religious legal issues frequently to say, I'm not going to argue anymore that marriage between a man and a woman, God's design for marriage has any real value in American law.
Why Is David French Optimistic About Progressive Marriage Legislation?

Megan Basham Takes on the So-Called 'Respect for Marriage Act'
"We begin? What's on your mind? Well, you know, one of the big topics I'm tracking right now and I think we're all talking about it is what's happening with the very misnamed respect for marriage act. I call it the disrespect for marriage act. So essentially what this is is a bill in the Senate that enshrines same sex marriage into the law legislatively. And of course, we know that it has been the law of the land since 2015 since the obergefell decision came down from scotus. But there were possibilities that it could be overturned based on the Dobbs ruling. So what we saw in that case was that, yes, the justices ruled that roe V wade should be overturned because it was bad precedent. It wasn't grounded in the constitution. They said it did not apply to the obergefell ruling, but justice clarence Thomas, my personal favorite justice, wrote a concurrence in which he argued that point. He basically said, look, if roe should be overturned with Dobbs, there's no precedent for having obergefell. So what we're seeing now is the Senate trying to sort of fix that gap legislatively. And it's a very aggressive Bill and to everyone shock 12 Republican senators joined that bill in order to advance it to the fore.

"Okay, when we come back, the amazing heroic, Megan basham, and after that, the amazing heroic John in your act. Alligator lives in the air in case you haven't been paying attention to the Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leaving the prices of goods to rise.

Eric Tells Us About His Recent Trip to Lynchburg, Virginia
"I was in Lynchburg, Virginia. At Liberty University, for an amazing event, Ryan helfenbein, Ryan is amazing. And he heads up the faith and freedom center at liberty. Ryan put together this conference, Sean Foyt was there, Liz Wheeler was there, Megan basham, my hero, Megan bed she's amazing. We spend time with her. Ralph Reed was, I mean, all these friends and it was amazing and lieutenant governor mark, was it Robinson, North Carolina, who's just a fighter. It was the whole thing was incredible. But I had to leave the next day because now this is the thing. I knew I was going to be in Pittsburgh because I spoke yesterday three times at grace life church pastor pastures book and Amy schaeffer invited me to speak here in Pittsburg because I was in Harrisburg. We met whatever ten days ago when I was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. So they invited me to be here. And then I get a phone call from you, Alvin seda, telling me, hey Eric, Saturday, which was two days ago, when you're going to be in Pittsburgh, guess what's happening in that neck of the Woods. And I said, what's happening, Alban? I've been telling the people what was happening. Well, Doug mass gianno Emmett Oz and president Donald Trump were campaigning and they had a big rally in latrobe PA. Right. So we cooked up a scheme where your identical twin brother, who I believe also had a birthday two days ago. That's right. What a coincidence. That's amazing. He picked me up from the airport. And he looked so much like you that it's kind of disturbing. It's kind of like wait a minute. You're Alvin. No, you're not Alvin. Yes, you're out, but no, you're not Alvin. Who are you?
Donald Trump Throws Shade at Ron DeSantis, Agreeing With Megyn Kelly
"You think if they got on a stage, you don't think that desantis is crafty enough or who stands enough to really know things. I don't even think that a little. I think Trump sucks up all the energy in every room, no matter what. And even someone is skilled as a politician and smart policy wise, as desantis can't overcome that he can't. You really think the hardcore maga is going to abandon Trump or desantis. They're not. They like desantis, but they don't think it's his turn. They think Trump is screwed out of his last election, that he screwed out of his first term by all the craziness and the Russia gate and so on. And they think he is entitled. He deserves another shot at it. It's like the hardcore Trump faithful is unshakable. They like desantis, but they would never cross Trump for him. And they think that desantis owes his political career to Trump. If forced to choose, they will choose Trump. So desantis can't take him down. It's like the line in war games, the only winning move is not to play. Desantis has got to either be crowned by Trump. Or he shouldn't run. He won't win over Trump. I'll stand by that. You can play it against me if I'm wrong, but I won't be. All right, so Megan and Kelly says that if desantis decides to go up against Trump, desantis loses. And Trump sent out a two word statement saying, I agree, which is pretty fascinating because, again, we're talking about megyn Kelly here, and there's a lot of well, I don't mean to use this phrase, but there is a lot of bad blood between those two. Going back to that infamous Fox News debate. So anyway, look, all I can say is knock it off, people. You know, seriously. We've got to play smart here.

Meghan and Harry Fear the Bling Ring
"Yeah, crime is up everywhere, man. Meghan Markle and prince Harry are scared. And their neighborhood. They're leaving their $14 million montecito home. There's no crime in montecito. There's not even flower boxes that get pushed over. So they have their sights on that. I'm very exclusive California private community called hope branch. People say the couple have, well, their current sprawling home doesn't properly accommodate them. Because they're a family of four. I don't know what that means it's too big or too small, but nothing I'm on aceto small, hope ranch is a suburb of Santa Barbara, California. Very affluent community, a lot of equestrians there. There's a nearby country club, there's a tennis court, a golf club, almost 30 miles of horse track riding trails, because all the 10% of the community owned horses there. The room while they're moving, this is the rumor. There was a news story that came out that there's a bling ring type of style, you know, out of area, death gang. And apparently they heard through the Grapevine that they had the Dutch and the duke and duchess montecito neighborhood on their hit list. Yeah, I mean, it's a great place to go Robin. It's got money everywhere. I mean, Adam Levine's out there, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres. Yeah. Make a lot of money out there with a bling ring. And I don't want to see these two git hurt, but I wouldn't mind finding out they got robbed. Like a Kim Kardashian Paris style robbery. Megan Markle needs that. There's always something that's hard on them. The family was harder than the queen was hard. They want their privacy. Her stupid podcast, his complete befuddled face everywhere.
Maggie Haberman: Trump Is the Biggest Demagogue in National Politics
"Maggie haberman of The New York Times I do not understand how she can be a so called journalist at the same time one of the biggest hacks on CNN But when you understand this is the nature of phony journalism today provided in America then you understand that maggot haberman is perfect Cut ten go But it is another thing as you say that he will point to to say you know I am a victim thereafter me He has been I think the biggest demagogue we have seen in politics in national politics in this country in modern memory possibly in the history of the country And he is very good at using anytime somebody is looking into possible misconduct or alleged misconduct and saying it's an example of just how unfair it all is Yes I am and Maggie you haven't been talking about Donald Trump I have obsessed with Donald Trump I need a psychiatric care Megan heaven here I just can't kick my mind off of him Even though he's no longer president I'd rather not write about the current president because I support the current president And of course he's the biggest demagogue we've seen in politics and national politics in this country certainly in modern memory And I know I've done an exhaustive examination of the demagogues not in memory That's right In Donald Trump is the number one democracy He always plays the role of victim you know It's because he's unfairly impeached twice and fairly Investigated criminally by the Mueller again just because they kept demanding his taxes just because they went after his family in his businesses
The Daily Wire's Megan Basham and Eric Discuss the Role of the Church
"I really believe those are the stakes right now in this country that the church must speak up and that voices like yours and mine must be bold because there are millions of people who don't know where to turn and they're hearing these false, these false voices. Yeah, and I think, you know, historically, we also need to look at the fact that this is not always just an issue of wanting to cozy up to power or wanting to come alongside and be in the club with the elite. There is also and I'm not going to speculate on who I think is a deliberate infiltrator. I don't know, but I know that that has happened in the course of history. In the 19 40s, Paul kanger wrote this wonderful book called the devil in Karl Marx, where he very directly traces Marxist influences who deliberately came into the church and they called the Christian pastors at that time suckers. He said the biggest suckers that they found when they were trying to spread communism in the United States was Christian pastors. Yeah, so he goes into detail about why this desire to be seen as loving, which we do want to be would sometimes lead them to be not discerning and they would adopt these communist priorities that they should not have been adopting. And it was funny because a couple of years ago, my husband and I went on a trip to Boston. And we did a tour of the king's chapel in Boston and our guide told us this church was funded in part by the monarchy because they wanted to influence these rebellious colonists to submit to their authority in England. And to they wanted to convince them that this was God's will for them to submit to the authority of The Crown. And I went, I believe that in a lot of these stories, we're still seeing that today.
Megan Basham: 'The Battle Lines Have Been Drawn'
"Think we're now at a point where the battle lines have been drawn as voting back and said in his book the fault lines are now cracking open and it's coming to the surface. And that's what you're starting to see at some of these organizations is that either people are leaving, people are speaking up. And so while it's on the one hand, it's a very discouraging development. I'm also somewhat encouraged by the fact that we're having these conversations openly because I think for a long time there are jokes about the 11th commandment, which is thou shalt not criticize church leaders publicly. And certainly we don't want to do that. Thoughtlessly, we don't want to do it carelessly. We want to think very carefully about, okay, how do we do this biblically? But I feel that we have gotten to a point where we need to have these conversations openly. Yeah. We need to have a Paul moment of I opposed Peter to his face.
Megan Basham, Culture Reporter at the Daily Wire, Shares Her Story
"Megan, welcome. Thank you. It's my joy to be here. I'm a huge fan. Well, you are really honestly on Twitter and other places I've seen you say what you have to say. It's very encouraging to folks like me because there are so few in the evangelical universe who seem to see things with the clarity that I do by God's grace. And I want to talk to you about some of that stuff, a little bit of to get your background also to what brought you to this place because there's so many people out there that are either saying nothing along the lines of what you're saying or what I'm saying or they're flat out getting it wrong and opening the door to cultural Marxism in what I assume is ignorance of the evil of it. Well, you know, we'll get to that because I think there's different motivations here. I think there is some ignorance, but I also think there's some deliberate infiltration. And I don't think you can dismiss that. So, you know, I came to this place as somebody who came to faith a little later in life in my early 20s. I just kind of talked about this at the national conservatism conference that I, you know, I was someone who was very given to licentiousness in college and kind of embraced the Arizona state playboys number one party school life and I ended up really broken and lost and miserable and at that time my childhood faith came back to me and I remembered where do I go here? Where do I get help? And I'm not being dramatic to say I called on the lord and said, God just help. I didn't even know if I believed anymore, but I called out help and felt this compulsion to go back to church on my own and I started going back to church and during that time. Just really became a different person as one should when it comes to faith. Transformed, met my husband, formed a family, formed a career, just did things that I did not have the strength to do before that.
"megan" Discussed on Popcast
"Megan falls into that a little bit. There's so much discourse that's been happening online of people saying really vile things to her, knowing that she's gone through so much grief and trauma that when you engage with this body of work that has trauma in the title and when she's talking about the death of her mother and being really vulnerable and opening up, even though sometimes a style of the production doesn't match the poignancy of her words and the gravity of what she's talking about, I know when I first got assigned the album I was really excited, but I obviously hadn't heard any of it. But when I listened to it and I was like, I have to engage with this critically because I'm a huge fan of her and I know that she has a better album in her even if this is like a stepping even though big facts. She's stepping more into it. Critique being, especially amongst black women, critique being an act of love and wanting someone to do better and their art form because you are a huge fan. I'm glad that I was assigned it because I felt like I really understood. I understood the lore of everything and the gravity of the situation. So I wasn't like dismissing what she went through, but I think one thing that I really wanted to see more of, which I didn't really consider the rage element of it also being an active vulnerability because I think we're so used to this kind of battle rap cadence and rap that it doesn't seem vulnerable, but that's such a profound perspective that I hadn't considered. I really wanted her to let us sit in the discomfort production wise. There's two songs that she really delves deep into the grief and trauma she experiences. Their anxiety and flip flop and I think they're like back to back and anxiety has this like looping yodel in the background that was really distracting and then I think flip flop is where she really it's a closer tonal fit to the gravity of the situation and grief and trauma that she's talking about. But even the chorus is very sing songy and it's like she doesn't really allow us to sit in that discomfort with her and maybe it's because she doesn't really want to sit in the discomfort because it is relatively fresh for her timeline wise.
Ron DeSantis & Megyn Kelly Share How We Really Feel About Fauci
"DeSantis, who is a tough guy, great governor down to Florida had a little something to say about that little elf cut number two. And I'm just sick of seeing him. I know he says he's going to retire. Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across. Now that's a pretty good line and it's a pretty good clip. But I got news for you. There's one that goes one better. And I just want to make sure we've bleeped everything we need bleeping, right? 'cause I can not afford any sort of fines and Todd can't afford any sort of fines and Kyle and grace can't afford any sort of fines. All right, miss Megan, megyn Kelly cut number 11. He sounds like he's been invited to afternoon tea at one of our houses. I will consider it, I'll consider it only if it's oversight because what I experienced was personal attacks. I will go if it's true you, Doctor Fauci, you don't get to say whether you go. You get a congressional subpoena, you show up, or you get the Steve Bannon treatment. Blank you, Fauci. Yeah, I don't know how you put that on a bumper sticker, but kudos to miss Megan for making clear what so many of us really do feel about that devilish diminutive little man and all of the damage that he has done. The horror that he is wrought, especially to our kids coming
The Truth About the Ohio Child Rape Case
"Can you take us from the top there? What made you start to question this, Megan? Well, the very first thing that really caught my attention was that this 6 weeks and three days thing was very too on the nose. So was the whole scenario row was just overturned, people had been including Caitlyn Bernard had been predicting terror scenarios, horror scenarios. And then suddenly right on cue, there is one. Now, that's not to say that this doesn't happen or can't happen, or maybe it happened in this situation, I had not considered that there's something I haven't considered a possibility. The possibility is that if this did happen, and we still haven't found any records of it. It's an even worse scenario than a fake story. A fake story would actually be better than if this really did happen. Because the only explanation I can think of for if this did happen, but Ohio doesn't have a record of it. And then Indiana, so far, we haven't got any records, but that doesn't mean they don't have any. We're waiting on foias, from Indiana. Ohio attorney general last night says they don't have anything. Is he also pointed out that they have a life sentence for rapists of children in Ohio.

Megyn Kelly: Why Should I Be Paying for Others' College Education?
"Now, a lot of people are working from home, but a lot of people are not working. By choice, but they sure want their student loan debt paid off by you and me, the taxpayer. I thought megyn Kelly's take on this was absolutely brilliant. Megan had this complete clear eyed response to any of us who have ever paid back our kids college debt and I have. I have, I know what it feels like to have to pay that college Bill. On more than one occasion, more than one kid. Megyn Kelly's got young kids, she'll be dealing out. She's got a lot of money, so it's not a big deal for her. But listen to what she said. I don't think the neighbor should have to pay for my college education. And my mom made a sacrifice. She could have been living off of that money. Suddenly she didn't have it, you know, two income home. But she used it to help her children. Like, that's what parents do. They scrimp and they save and they do what's necessary to pay for things like education. And we took out loans too, and then we paid those loans back. Why should these snot nosed kids today? I'm sorry. The ones who really need it, they can get loans, right? But like you point out a lot of these people are going to be these sort of college Columbia elite graduates who are going to spend their years in journalism trying to shame half of America for doing absolutely nothing wrong. Why should I be paying for their college education? I don't want to. She's right.

"So join the moyne movement today. Go to moin fox dot com slash Eric right now listeners to this show get free fillet mignon for a year, not kidding, moin box dot com slash Eric. Folks, I'm talking to Megan basham. Or is it basham? Fashion. Megan, we're gonna go with whatever you say. You know, it's your name. We're talking to Megan basham and I want to say there's so much in the article. It's so important and it's just wonderful that you and the daily wire are doing genuine journalism. I want to ask you this more in the article about transgender research, LGBTQ issues. Talk about that if you would. Right. So, you know, part of this is I think we've seen this discussion of the fetal tissue research, pro lifers are very strong on this. But it's a discussion we've been having for a long time as Christians amongst ourselves. And so I think in some sense the headline out of that, maybe wasn't as shocking as some of the other stuff that came up about Francis Collins, and in particular, I found material that he launched an initiative. And when you look it up online, you can go take a look at it. It's a four or 5 year funding of what they're calling sexual and gender minorities. And at the front of it, you see Francis Collins face a nice picture of him in a nice letter where he declares himself an ally and an advocate of the LGBT community. Now, that's really hard to reconcile with an Orthodox Christian faith. And beyond that, you go on the ground, he didn't just say that he didn't just, you know, I have to pair these words to be able to work in government. You saw that play out in the kind of funding that came out of this initiative that Francis Collins put his name and his face to and that included transgender research where a study in California where they were giving opposite sex hormones to children as young as 8 years old. They were performing mastectomies on girls as young as 13. And I spoke to another reporter who's been doing really diligent work on this issue and he told me Megan we're talking about some of these kids were in the foster care system. They had nobody looking out for them. These are kids who they're not protected and they're being used in this way and they're being part of research. It's being funded out of the NIH. And this is the guy that they're holding up to us as the Christian leader that we can trust and listen to on these medical questions. And so that was pretty shocking to find that information and you go, how do his values align with the broad swath of Christians around the country? I think it's really hard to argue that they do, because all of his policy seem to align perfectly with a pretty extreme leftist agenda. But see, this is the issue. That you see an extreme leftist agenda. One would have expected Christian leaders in the evangelical camp to however lovingly always take a clear stand with regard to the killing of the unborn with regard to the question of how many sexes there are. What kind of sexual activity is warranted according to the faith? These are basic things and how one deals with it is a secondary issue. But somehow it seems that being loving means now for folks like this that we kind of muddied this line. We blur this line enough, it seems to me practically to encourage people to do the wrong thing to think the wrong thing. That's where it becomes scandalous. Well, and isn't it strange that things that are pretty nuanced and gray areas like masks and vaccinations became a hard line you must do this in a very legalistic way. And things that the Bible is quite clear on like the sanctity of human life and sexual and sexual ethics and gender identity and that the body belongs to God and he made the male and female, those things were making nuanced when they're not. And so that was really part of the odd process of covering this story is going the things that should be key principle things have been relegated to gray areas and the things that are already gray are now being made first order business..

"To the witness of the church. What I see there so much here and again, thank you, Megan basham for writing this article at the daily wire because it helps us navigate this. But there is so much here to be unpacked so to speak. When you talk about all of this, when anyone talks about this, it's inevitable that I will think of the German church in the 1930s principally because I wrote a biography Dietrich bonhoeffer and you were able to see how good people a good people who identified as Christians and as Christian leaders made gasly decisions, ghastly mistakes. Some of them eventually saw it. But almost all who did see it of the few who did see it, they woke up when it was too late. They didn't realize they had been played by the government used by the government as pawns because it's human nature or sinful human nature as we all want power. We all want to feel that we're on the right side of things. That seems to be at the heart of this article that you've written that there was eager complicity in spreading these what amounts to propaganda for the COVID cause. Right. And to be very specific here about propaganda. It wasn't just things that may be very debatable now, like the mask situation, like the lockdown situation. We're now seeing evidence that lockdowns didn't really do much. But it was also some really specific stuff like the lab leak theory that Francis Collins had a personal vested interest in suppressing. So that's something that Congress is looking into now, but you go, the church participated in that, you know, they've put out essays saying it is a conspiracy theory to discuss the laby theory. I know because my friend Francis Collins told me. And it sinful to spread that kind of gossip and you went, wow, okay, so now you have in some part become a collusion with suppressing pretty relevant information that we as a culture need to be talking about. It really is extraordinary. I've put the article out on my Twitter account on all of my social media accounts and I want to encourage people to spread the word. It is at the daily wire, the author is Megan, basham BA, SHA, M, Megan, I've seen your name a million times. I've obviously pronounced it infrequently. We'll be.

And they still give it out as far as they know. It goes to like a senior every year. Do you feel like that's your legacy? Well, I also have in the last year I was bestowed a Meghan gaily day in the city of Indianapolis. What the fuck? No, this is not about you. That's great for you. Congratulations for you. I furious. My high school, I am easily discounting women's golf. I am the most famous person from my high school. I'm not famous at all, just for the listener. Los Angeles, you're successful. You're a writer. Yes. Thank you. Thank you. I have not been not only have I no one named shit after me. No one's even invited me back to give a graduation speech. And what the fuck is up with that? Well, and see, this isn't my high school. No, this is the city of Indianapolis. And I'm really Pennsylvania, where are you at? I know. I know. And the thing is I didn't give any money. I don't agree with the politics. It's like, I am, I did help campaign for a city councilwoman. And so she has got it, obviously, for me. But I'm like, I want nothing more than to be on the wall of fame at my high school. And my mom taught me recently that her friend's daughter who's very lovely. Is on there and she was like a conductor at Princeton. I'm like, listen, that's cool. But I'm on TV. Okay, so just that Princeton? Yeah. Like they're not a conductor like in the New York philharmonic or anything like that. Bullshit. There's like a doctor. There's like an oncologist on there. I'm like, that's not even. I think you did Lance Armstrong. It's like we all hate him now. You've got the doctor. You should be taking off for helping land. Well, we should definitely be like, who else you got? You know? Right, right, right. He also helped Louie. He also helped Louie. He does do cough cough on Chris D'Elia. I mean, it's a tough group. Yeah, I want nothing more and yeah, I thought about I was like, do I need to give money? I'll give money. I'll buy my way under the wall. You might have to give the money. You might have to find something. That's fine. That's fine. So wait, Megan, when did you start dating? For real, for real. Wow. I started dating probably in college. And it was the athletes because you were the sorority right from freshman year. Yeah. And you joined my year we joined gosh like the second week of school. So we were like in it pretty fast. But yeah, the first guy that I dated at Purdue was a wide receiver on the football team. And his nickname even amongst the other football players, his nickname was no clue. That's how that's how dim he was. So, so what attracted to him? He was really hot. It was really hot. How long did that relationship last if he's not very proud? So we ended up gosh. We dated like freshman year for a little bit, and then junior year, I kept going back to the well. And he was never like, I probably would have been fine calling him my boyfriend. I don't think he would have called me his girlfriend. Oh no. Well, you know these football players, they're hard to nail down. Is that what you like though? You like a different you like a man where it's difficult? No. No, because it made it definitely like, I don't know. Well, actually the first guy I ever made out with in college was this guy who was a defensive end. And he was so big. I remember he walked. He was in my theater class. It was like theater one O one where you know it's like 200 students. You're not like doing monologues or whatever. And he walked in and he was probably 6 5 to 90, like a giant man. He since went on to be in the NFL. And I think I kicked out because it was not a nice good person or whatever, but I remember making what do you have to do to get kicked out of the NFL? They didn't even kick out the guy that did the dog fighting. Did they? Well, you have to be not that good too. You have to be like, do something. And he did something like maybe kind of bad, but they were also like, you're not as good as we wanted you to be. But he had made a Pro Bowl. So I guess it was pretty good. But we were making out in his apartment. And while we were making out, he made sports centers top ten. And it came on the TV while we were making out and I was like, wow. But like at the time, I remember being like, I'm still wearing a pad. Yeah. I was a young, I was like, even a young 18. But you were like, well, first of all, can we talk about SportsCenter being on in the background that was kind of the aphrodisiac for the two of you? For sure. At all. For sure. For sure. But then he made the NFL has never talked to.

"I do want to just say before, you know, for the listener, I did call Meghan and we started recording and you know that's just what it is right now to have both my husband and my wife on the same podcast. It is a lot. I hope you guys don't fight, but I think this is also gonna be really good for you too. I think so. You call your wife. Now, do you have to pay child support? No. And that's what makes the marriage work. I have decided I am going to register for a Gucci diaper bag. So if she wants to get me that, I'll be happy. And we're not, we're not getting you the first. I'm gonna tell you that right now. You're gonna get a high chair, you're gonna get controller. Those are cheaper. I mean, the Gucci diaper bag is cheaper than a stroller. It's the Gucci part. It's about supporting it. He won't support it. I won't see the movie. I won't support I won't support the house of it all. Oh, right, right, right, right, right. Oh, yeah, yes. I forgot. After what they did. Megan, I want to say this. I know Naomi said this to you in real life. Maybe even on your podcast together. But a deceptive white woman if I may say that. Wow. Wow. I don't mean you are deceptive yourself, but I mean, your whiteness is deceptive. Yes. Okay. Hit a dump. I would like to hear you as a white man explain it to me. Oh. You're inviting man's playing? Yes. Oh my God, I love listening to men talk. Give me give me more. Give me more. Give me give me more. Well, first, let's start with the X-Men. And let's go. Right through deep X-Men history. And that's I think a good place for me as a man. As a man for your need to start the man's plan. Well, because you know I got questions about that. CJ took me to something and I go, where's Wonder Woman? He goes different universe. And I go, they're all together at this point. You know, just give it. I don't care that she's not in marvel, give her to me. That's not how it works, Megan. You don't care how it works. It's not real. But as the shuffling esquire will know, is that there are IP issues? Yeah. Yeah. Well, you have to tell me why you think she's a deceptive white woman. No, no, no, because you give off the vibe of yes. But you are decidedly not even in the vicinity of a Karen. That's why. Even in the vicinity. Two plane rides away. You need a connecting flight to get to the same thing. I do have to let you know, I'm flying home on the 22nd because my dad is having heart surgery. And my mom just texted me, bring a bathing suit. What are you gonna do? Indiana in December. How could it be for what reason? I have no idea. I'm only bringing up because it just flashed on my screen and it's like, what? I gotta do some laps at the JCC. Yeah, we're going to great wolf lodge to celebrate his new ticker, I guess. Oh my goodness. Now, Megan, though, speaking of your mom, texting, and I think this is something Andy and I are always very fascinated by you are very close with your parents. Totally close with your mother. Now we're all always besties. I know you're the only daughter. So was it always just like mommy's girl? Or was it once you became girl? Yeah. I know what you call it. It's so foreign to me. Mommy's girl is definitely a good lifetime title. We should type that into the search. Yeah, so I'm the youngest and only girl and my mom was the youngest and only girl. And so I think she was thirsty. I think this bitch would have kept going until they had a girl. You know? She just would have had 7 duggars or whatever. Hopefully no pedophiles. And hoped for a girl. Yeah. So when I was born, it was, you know, lots of bows and all of my bloomers had my initials on it. You know, just like very over the top girly girly girly stuff. That explains why you are so girly now. Yes. You were always. Yeah, and my mom, I mean, my mom is like, chic, but she does dress like a child going to Easter mass. Belt shoot per smashing, and you're like, oh my God. You know, which is like, which if I still lived in Indiana, would definitely be my look, but CJ has helped me be like, not everything needs to be the same shade of blue. So yeah, I do think we were, but I also was, for the sequel to mommy's girl, a daddy's girl, too. And maybe that's just 'cause both of my brothers were mean. My parents were like, well, just take her as our own. You are a parent's girl. I'm a big time parent girl. But I'm also really close with my brothers too. So you just get along with everyone. What is this life where everyone's Friends? Well, I mean, I start therapy when I was 14. It's not like it's been an easy road. You did? Why? Well, actually 12. Probably 12. 12. Yeah. That's what makes it very interesting. But you're from my neck of the Woods..

"Did you like acting yeah. It was fun. Yes yeah i mean. I love living in the moment with people. I guess i'm gonna tell you straight up. Then i don't think i could act out a scene or i'm kissing someone for you know i just. I didn't know i could do it either. I was so what. What did i take. Seems incredibly personal. I mean that was incredibly personal. You know for sure but again. I think when i was doing it it was. It was more just like experimentation like. Let's see. i've never done this before. I'm gonna live in the moment. And then in the moment i was like if i was coming onto this person this is what i. This is the tone of voice i would use. This is who. I would become if i was going to come onto this person you know so i think the reason why quote unquote acting was fun for me is because i really was just being myself in a strange situation that makes you know and i think i think for me. The like the part of the creative process that i do really love is going into waters. I've never been in before like after after that acting day in the park. I ran six miles. Because i was like. I usually do a loop around a place. That's like three miles. And i was like what if i just did two loops today. I've also never run six miles before you know. And so i just feel like when i stretch my life in these different aspects. The potential of my life is so large. That's podcast producer and artist. Megan tan megan's currently piloting her own show. But it's not entirely about her just a little bit with a nod to her experience with millennials. She jokingly told me she's designing the podcast not to be about her. It's designed to be sustainable. Which i thought was pretty funny now. I should mention that. There's a big part of megan story on wild that i left out of this episode of house out. What happened after the date. And why did she need to dramatize the story when she could have just interviewed the actual person she dated. Well all tell you is. There's a major plot twist in the story one that i didn't want to spoil here on house out so you'll have to go. Listen however i did talk to megan about. Women experienced these types of situations regularly. I think not talking about it. As a fact of life is not honest. I encourage you to listen to meghan story.

There's another about seeing the world in new ways as a photographer when the world is locked down. There's lots of unique firsthand cova stories infused with joy. Megan told me the host is eric. Lindo he's a writer and journalist largely working in tv but he might of missed his calling because he's a great host for the podcast. So chill and welcoming s for megan. She was a producer for wild helping others. Tell their story just like she had gimblett and all the other places she worked after millennial she says after millennial she really needed those years away from telling personal stories but one day she was talking to eric and she mentioned to him that she'd been out on a date during covert. He was so intrigued. By what. I had gone through because he was not dating and he was just like well. We should do a story about that. And i kind of was just like okay. I just was like yes. I said yes and i didn't really know what i was getting myself into. But life is not bill on knows. And so i'm just trying to say yes more off. The episode she made about herself is called. How do i love someone all right. You ready yeah. Merry megan tell me about love. Man story starts with loosely interviewing megan about love and dating. I don't know if you know this about me. Eric but i love love. Love is cozy like a blanket and comfort food. I came here tonight because we realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. Megan talks about dating prior to covert meeting people at bars salsa clubs farmers markets even the hardware store. It's so basic so do is you catch their. I like that. That's a very obvious. Yeah that's for sure. And then you smile and then literally just get closer vicinity and then you literally say any. Hey did you get that done that. I like i really like your face humane but of course like everything else. The pandemic put an end to meeting people in person for a while. She resisted using dating apps after all. There's a pandemic wide risk getting sick. And besides she doesn't like him dating apps we're just so flat. It's like soda without the bubbles. You know to help with her loneliness she got a dog levi but as cool as levi was. He wasn't enough. She still felt lonely. And so megan gave in and got on a dating app. So you're on the phone with people and you're asking them about their life in a way that is of concern. So where do you work. So i'm in.

She felt compelled to tell a memoir recorded as it happened. You're listening to millennial a podcast series about something that no one ever teaches you how to maneuver your twenties captured in real recently. I'm millennial. I graduated from college without a plan. Then i came home but things had changed. Megan stories were honest and intimate listeners. Loved millennial did podcast reviewers. The show took off. I made my first crucial decision as a postgraduate millennial and decided to move on with my boyfriend eventually though millennial wore her down since millennial was about megan the mike she picked up was always pointed at her. Everything in her life was fodder for the program. Her relationship with her parents. Her boyfriend work friends taxes. She felt like she couldn't put the mic down until she did. Megan closed up shop about two and a half years and forty seven episodes later. She had to. She couldn't take it any longer. I interviewed megan about that decision in two thousand eighteen. So here's this thing that you built with a lot of your own sweat and you become part of radio topi a- at the best month you have your four hundred thousand downloads and you walk away Do you know how many people out there who are making their own podcast. Right now would die for that. I wonder if they would though like when the thing that you love is grinding you into the ground mentally emotionally.

You play a student in this particular film exactly. Where does your character fit into the whole picture. Yesterday was a lie. you know. it's a little small part that i just felt really lucky to have. I think you know the whole thing is. It's a big mystery. I think these this is you know she comes in and she's trying to figure out what exactly is happening. And i don't think my kids are necessarily really helped her to that at off. I think it just adds a lot of mission. She's trying to prevent Kipling's character from figuring anything how. She's very protective. She dumped into like a science classroom. I'm really protective of the of the information. That's on hands. They're just very very suspicious of what's happening at a little more insult to injury trying to get away of her figuring anything out so they actually shot this in a classroom set somewhere an actual classroom. We did we did. We shot it over at a school in la vermont. A little bit south. Let's be this was the science classroom and and just next door where we were all dressing And getting stuff done with a pretty hard core science classroom with lots of dead animals and brains and things and that was fun. It's good it's good. How many days were you actually for a day. I have worked with james In the past several times in theater he asked. If i'd be willing to do a cameo in the movie and i read it and thought of course you're willing to do it and Just very curious about the style. And i think that i think that seems just such a good way with this kind of material so i was just a really gracious to be And it was fun. It was a real real fun day. I mean we. I i went there and we were supposed to start early afternoon and there was some some issues so something's got moved around and i was there. I guess until we didn't really start shooting like almost two in the morning. Oh yeah it was interesting so we just you know crapton waited and did this crazy Senior science lab was awesome. Now was this. Does this to take place during the day or evening or i think it takes place. Most of this movie takes place in the in the so Yeah i mean. I think it's even it's after hours. It's not like a you know. These are just some students hanging around that our assistant professor basically and She comes in to try to try to figure out some system information and these students are guarding basically with their with their lives not letting her have any access to any of the materials in this lab. So yeah to darken very spooky. Are you students of a professor. Who's played by john. Newton in the phil no okay. Yeah no we're we're students of You know this isn't such a long time. I have to be completely honest. i haven't even been able to see it yet. I'm chomping at the bet to see the final product. And i don't even remember everybody's name remember the actress parts but I wish i could have gotten it. After i i saw it. I'm just wait eagerly. Waiting at this had a baby so things sounds like it. That's great congratulations. That's a wonderful thing to you. Know in life so baby. Yeah being a parent. That's a hard job but it's very worthwhile. Let my brain cells are coming out in my breast milk. 'cause i can't remember any that's fine but But yeah we're all looking forward to seeing it and now there is shot in black and white so Did you have to wear any weird color combinations to try to avoid you know why not look totally west out You know you have to be a special person and the lightest right for for that. But no i didn't. I think i think they really just stuck addressing the characters the way the characters would be dressed. You know Just avoiding you know little things that would interfere with with lighting but You know we didn't have too much so we'll get to be sort of true to true to south. And i were a little skirt all shirt and backpack and would you say your dress contemporary or a a certain time period. Yeah because i know they kind of mix and match time periods and movie That was something that was really interesting about it. You know it's just It's sort of timeless thing. And i would say it's contemporary but yeah no i was contemporary. I mean jean. Skirts pre contemporary. Yeah yeah hose. It like to To work with kipling. That's great. I mean she was really feel like she. Just you know she just had that character down I'm lucky 'cause i kinda came into well. I mean lucky. You know for me to come into it. You know when they had a lot under their belt already so she was extremely comfortable. and and Just knew exactly what she was doing and You know you get to a place into a group when you're making a movie and she was certainly into that groove and so it's a thrill really she was tackling it and you know i always easier to act with somebody who knows what they're doing to jamie's have everything pretty much have a good idea of what he was doing. As far as the scene and blocked one of the most meticulous. I have ever met or had the push you're working with. No he is extremely specific to a t exactly what he wants exactly what he needs to get And you know. He doesn't settle for anything less than that Which is great. I mean you feel like you know you know he might be hamry into the ground but you know that he's not gonna let anything fly. It's anything less than the best stuff. You're in good hands pretty interesting stuff. So far we'll have more with megan heading in just a minute. Here's more sifi talk with tony. Tomato did you have to stand a certain way. Just so they can get the right angles. So the plaques looks really. I mean you know. We hit hit marks and lighting is always very very important and making but in black and white. You know it was all that much more specific so Yeah we You know you gotta be whereas you know your market or you're just just as much to the left you know. It doesn't work anymore. Yeah i hear you well. It sounds interesting and look forward to seeing.

"Painting. No no did i tell you. Did i tell you even thinking about. It makes my hands her. There's no way there's no way so for those who are unfamiliar. First of all diamond. Painting is a terrible name for what this actually is essentially. It's paint by numbers but you use tiny little plastic beads. Would you say that's accurate. Little are tiny you they come in kits. I think you could free it never going to do that. I like the kim. And it's basically comes with a sheet of fabric with the design printed on it and adhesive coating on it and on the sheet of fabric are tiny little circles. Sometimes they come in squares with the one. I use this tiny little circles that are color coded and then you have corresponding teeny tiny little plastic beads. That you use a small tool. Looks like a pen or a pencil to move the beads from a little tray to the painting. And you just repeat repeat repeat repeat you dip the tool a little bit of wax makes the tip of the two a little sticky and then you just tap back and forth and it sticks to the surface of the sabbath i i do. They look stressful. They did not enjoyable and then our friend. Michelle was posting one. She was working on instagram. And so i started asking her questions and so she started showing me video. She was sending me damning video of her a process and i thought that it kind of looked relaxing watching her do it. I was like oh. I do that so i ordered a kit and i do it for me. Ten twenty minutes at a time. I don't because they're so small. The my eyes start to like what i do. Find it in the moment kind of relaxing.

"It's not one of my talents but you can stream their music. I think only five other songs were in the show but you can stream their music on spotify or wherever you listen to music. And it's not all current pop like journey in there. And i honestly can't think of anything else off the top my head but it's nice if you like to listen to music while you're working but like me you don't want music with words because you find it distracting. Sometimes you ever go do you ever. What's that song like. I know that song but what is it like it. You try to name the song yet will. Yeah then. I should look at my phone. Okay but okay. So then i'm guessing you don't know who he is. I mean i know who she is. Oh the brady oh well here like. I don't know things anything. But i'm not gonna identifying their songs but yeah i am in love with this girl like. I love her music. I can't name one song. Can't name a current album of hers. But i'm gonna tell you that. I was watching an episode of dc. Yes here we come full circle dallas cowboys cheerleaders. And they had a choreographer on it. Travis travis wall so anyway he choreographed this dance to a duly thong and it was called hold on a second pretty pleased and i was like really super into it. I don't know if it was the dance moves that he choreographed or the song but take other boue was so good. It was so good. So that i wanna start listening to her. Even though i've heard her songs on the radio before but yeah anyway. I'm been listened to a lotta duleep. Both lately. I have been in a bit of a podcast. Rut which sounds like a weird thing to say as a person who creates podcast but but one podcast. That is new to me. But i am enjoying quite a bit is the podcast. And they are a pop culture podcast. I like their banter. And i like. They're like the pace of their podcast is really fast and peppy. And you know. They'd like checked in on their twenty. Twenty predictions made some twenty twenty one predictions and i'm enjoying them I have you did introduce me to them. I haven't given them enough time. Speaking of new to me podcasts. I have been listening to pod saves america. Oh yeah it's really good. I mean it's a political podcast. And so if it's not your thing like i get it. They're basically just talk about like breaking. The last couple of months has been like breaking breaking news. Things that are going on in the country blah blah blah. That kind of stuff. A lot of commentary on it. I enjoy it I can't i don't know the names of the host. I can't remember right now but follow them both on twitter and i think that's how that's how i found this podcast but if you're into american politics i wanna listen to some commentary on it. I would just checking it out. John levitt dan pfeiffer and jon favreau who is not the jon favreau. Yes tommy veto detour. Yeah and we will be right back with megan anti approved. Today's.
"megan" Discussed on Long Story Short with Megan and Wendy: The Podcast
"Well i think we say all of this to say once again we do not have all the answers but we see you and we hear you and as rough right now but we do appreciate all of your kind words about our podcast. I know that sounds like a weird transition but we appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us and as one last comment heidi says i have also used seabreeze and or clear poor astringent for years and my thirteen year. Old daughter uses it as well guys. This is multiple votes for seabreeze astringent. We may have to do a test. I that is so funny okay. This is like three podcast now that we've talked about seabreeze cheerful. If you subscribe to our youtube channel many of you may know for years and years. Wendy and i created videos together and we created one two three videos week. There are hundreds of videos on youtube channel and in a conversation with them other podcasters. Many people mentioned that they sort of. They put their podcast on youtube. It's a different audience over there a lot of times. It's just an audio with the you know you're not getting video. Podcast content but youtube is huge search. Engine plus we already had a bit of a built in audience over there so we jumped on that train. We're going to be honest. If i still think the easiest way to listen to the podcast is in a podcast app. Right like meet the people where they are and what was really fun. Is i kind of thought. We're gonna put it up there and it's just going to sit there. Because youtube is for visual content and then like an hour later we get an email from stacey who says i used to watch your videos all the time and miss not any for a long time. Your first five. Podcast just showed up on my youtube subscription page. Thank you so much for coming back to entertain us. You guys are the best. And i can't wait to hear more however we did. Get some unsubscribe. We did we did. And i. sometimes that happens. People are like when did i. Why am i subscribed to this person. Because it's been a while since we've put content and they're like i don't want this subscribe but i try and take that as our customer anyway when we get a newsletter unsubscribe. I have a moment of like how dare you and then online. That's that's not our customers. Interact with our and try and move on. Four screen tried against. I think wendy. If it's someone that we know can share it's oh and one other pro for youtube is youtube is a very easy way to caption our podcast. Because youtube has captioning ability built right into what makes our podcast more accessible for someone who might need to read it as opposed to listening to it so that was another great selling point that was mentioned in the conversation that we had and so we will continue to upload podcasts. You can get them in a variety of places. And i'm gonna drop a link in our show notes at magny dot com because like megan said. There's there's like over three hundred videos. Oh least right hundred. There's some funny stuff there. So i would love it if you guys if you've never seen one of our video click on through. See what we offered over there. And i have a quick follow up from something. We mentioned in last week's episode. Okay we talk about dallas cowboys cheerleaders. And boy i know. This is going to be very brief. But as i was editing that episode i did Googling and fell down the rabbit holes of a few different message boards and turns out our girls. Brennan and hannah were very vocal about their discomfort with the protocols that were in place for covert and they felt that they were for show and that they were not actually protecting anyone and they. They both felt that. Perhaps being outspoken about that was part of what led to them being. Let go interesting. I wonder if they have anything in their contracts that they're not supposed to like you know speak poorly of the organization and perhaps i don't fault them for speaking up. I think that's great that they thought that that was important to do. Also i cut this out but We discussed vets who had been dismissed in the past. Because we didn't really have enough information. So i cut it out because it was a lot of speculation but i did want to say one of the vets who was dismissed was named. Who was maybe the very best dancer. The dc has ever seen truly mind blown. If you google deasy holly. You'll see her and she was let go for fraternization with did you ever see. Okay if was really all. It's a really old movie but it's about Being a laker girl and it had teenage mothers in it from family ties and she was trying out to be a lakers girl. I do not remember that. It's like a lifetime. I wouldn't have to look it up but hold on. Let me look it up right now. Anyway a big storyline in there was like you cannot have like any sort of like personal relationship with the with the players of the team and i can't remember but i remember her like her trying to make the team paula. Abdul may have been in it. She was lakers girl. Hold on how young mothers it's called laker girls from nineteen ninety movie follows three spiring candidates for the la lakers cheerleader squad. Anyway one fails to make the cut so to make the team on does not own streaming anywhere. According to just watch. I might have to watch it and buy the dvd for nineteen eighty eight on amazon steep. Its prime now you can have day anyway. How did we get this topic. Are we talking about dc very much. That's a wrap on dc until next season which probably will start this summer. So you've got a little bit of a break. i. I really do love that show though. I don't know why maybe it is. Yeah i think. Maybe in another life. I wanted to be. I mean i did. Pop warner cheerleading as a child by. Maybe i love to be a cheerleader. No dance ability whatsoever. But i would have loved it right. I was envious of high school cheerleaders. Because you wanted to be one. What were you instead that's cool. I wasn't good. You still made the team. yes well. I also received the coach's award my sophomore and junior year award for no it don't for coming to have your practice. This girl who shows up every day terrible but damage. She's their wait. Did you play your senior year long enough to get the p credits that i needed. I played soccer. And i ran track so i wouldn't have to take p you ran track. I can't even imagine yet. The shortest distance possible associated wasn't good but it was over. Best guys we're gonna take a quick break and we're gonna come back to talk about what we're watching what we're listening to and what reading lately.
"megan" Discussed on Long Story Short with Megan and Wendy: The Podcast
"Wanted to say that if you have friends who are creators who put things out on the internet. One really great easy free way to support them is by interacting with our stuff and especially with podcasters. Writing reviews is a really high impact. Low effort way support people and we got a great review that we wanted to read with you from dory who says megan and wendy have helped me get through quarantine this year. I didn't realize how much i was missing talking with friends. Their conversations are so relatable. I almost want to contribute to the conversation when i'm listening. They're completely entertaining. I always learn something when. I listen and i typically and up laughing out loud and episode. Thank you ladies So nice thank you dory. That is nice. One hundred percent of our goal with podcast is for it to feel like. You're chatting with friends so totally. We also talked about how we love your emails when he actually loves any eleven email if they want to send one yeah We can be reached at megan and windy at. Go dot com. It's not hard to remember. We want to hear thoughts about the show things. You want to hear us talk about criticism. Whatever we're all ears. I could see you curling in on yourself as you say the word criticism i know we nice but you can always find that e mailing to nurture notes to forget although it is pretty easy. It's on our website and we got an email last week From heidi after our episode about friendship and we got feedback from a couple people about that and we wanted to thank everyone again who left us comments on instagram and on facebook that we shared on the show A couple of them came after we had recorded and so i show them in our instagram stories. And we appreciate that But one of the things that heidi says is definitely relate to the friendship portion of the podcast today and had a hard time during the pandemic with friendships. Not the best at initiating stuff. I think struggling with so many other things has made it hard to connect with people. And she says i found that after moving out of state for a few years i lost a lot of friends and when i return to california i felt lost. I had a hard time connecting with people. I even felt like i lost my confidence of being a good friend. I can really relate to that. And i think feeling like you might not be a good friend makes it hard to be a good friend because you're not sure how the steps you take in friendships are going to be received I'm kind of real sad to read that email has heidi is a high school friend of mine and It breaks my heart a little bit thinking that like she feels lonely and disconnected from people. So heidi if you're listening you can always reach out to me and i'll read out back to you. I'm so sad. Well i think this is really relatable. She says i'm often jealous. When i see people on facebook of a bunch of girlfriends and they get together and often have lunch drinks etc I don't feel like. I have that kind of bond with women and you know. That's so one thing windy and i talked about early on is i always had like. I was really sad that it wasn't invited to join anyone's bubble and i read an article in la times. Will lincoln in the show. Notes about this woman had tried to create a pandemic pod for her kid tried to create a bubble and she ran into roadblocks at every. Turn you know families that she thought might share. Her level of cautiousness has weren't necessarily ready or you know one family would say well we love to but we also see grandparent's and we see my sister who's a healthcare worker and we you know so then she just kept running into all. These roadblocks in terms of finding this bubble. And i can really relate to that because we have you know didn't really connect with anybody who had our same level of cautiousness. Who was really willing to think. You really have to be willing to make a commitment if you're going to do that sort of thing. Sure but that's ed seems like lots of people out in the world down a way to make it work and i've definitely been very envious of people who are like getting together with friends and traveling with friends. And even if i wouldn't do it i still feel envious of them of course shink. Here's what i want. I have a couple of things to say one. I don't think what you're seeing on. Media is are people who are actually in bubbles. I think they're just living their life. They went the way they want to live their life. You know like hashtag masks off for the photo right just calling it. Their bubble and totally totally The other thing is this is why i hate social media like it hurts my heart to see that kind of stuff like i don't typically suffer from fomo but this past year i have just been seen people like i know. I can't have it both ways. I want to do these things. But i also want to stay healthy and i think there is a moral aspect to that as well so I'm conflicted but i think overall i'm just like i please don't post that shit on the internet like i don't wanna see it like yes. I know it's fantastic. And it feels great to post pictures that you are on vacation or you went somewhere and i am guilty of it too but there are people who are choosing not to do that and i think it just makes people feel worse when they see it. You know in our instagram feed. We post pictures of the two of us. That are all old every picture you see where we are next to each other is pre pandemic and i always put a disclosure. I kind of get a little tired of writing it. Because i think people get tired of seeing it but i also think i wanna make it very clear that we're walking the walk You know we have billions of photos and we're using them to paint a picture but also it's not happening right now like we're not just saying like you know where asset because we're gonna be in the same house together because that's not happening right..
