Has Sancho Lost His Way?
"Against teams above twelve in the table so far this season chelsea zero wins. We talk about that like title contenders a lot. I mean that's that's not not what they should be with this because we saw them go to was via with basically a change change about ten plus may even have been eleven remember and went there in hamad severe. And you look to them. That could be the starting eleven. The weekend we wouldn't be could it be. I mean that's how the squad is so the team selection. The weekend's going to be intriguing because clearly lumpar has been very unhappy with the two performances. the game at home i started game ever and then the game against wolves where they had lost possession particularly in the game but they lacked co an age So i'm not as convinced about best result.

Roger Ver of Bitcoin.com: True Economic Freedom
"For those who are viewers. Who for some reason. Don't know who you are. You wanna give a quick background kind of who you are and how you got into blood. Sure i was much younger. when i got into blockchain. it's been ten years now. But basically i was the first person that had any sort of capital to get excited about this base. I had my own business in silicon valley heard about. Bitcoin dropped everything to start focusing on that. And so i basically funded the entire first generation of bitcoin businesses and back and it was only bitcoin crypto currency was just bitcoin and bitcoin wallet some bitcoin exchanges and so these are companies. That people would have heard of today like a bit pay and cracking in blockchain dot com personnel. Of course then. A lot of people don't know it. I was actually a second person ever involved in in ripple as well so jed michaela came up with the idea and then approached me said he said he said. I think bitcoin mining waste what we can make. It does require mining. Are you willing to fund to make that happen. So i said sure. Let's give that a try. So actually i helped start ripple as well and then a number of other crypto currencies out there and i've been involved in the space a fulltime for almost exactly a decade. Now well. I mean those. That is a great groundfloor. The list of groundfloor is to get in on. I mean people. Talk about warren buffett. I think you might be warren buffett two point in terms of you just get getting great investment. So kudos to you. But if if we're gonna be talking you know right now we got to mention you know you've always been a strong proponent of bitcoin cash andy idea of bitcoin being electronic peer to peer network or peer to peer cash network but the network recently underwent a hard fork was over a mining tax of eight percent essentially a bitcoin. Abc wanted to tax the miners eight percent and and put it into a development fund You were against that and you're actually won by quite a large margin. Talk us through a little bit. Why you're against de-mining tax and kind of get much pushback. I mean it seems like it was overwhelmingly the bitcoin cash amini sided with you in this matter. Yea i initially had a pretty open mind about it. And then i don't think so much. The problem with diverting and there certainly was a problem with it but the minor the only a small part of the problem was diverting part of the block reward to pay for development within the ecosystem. The big part of the problem is who decides. And how did the town. And there wasn't any sort of way to figure that out and that was a real big problem. I think and it just was going to lead to a never ending amount of infighting and the money was gonna wind up going to those the most effective at political lobbying rather than those that we're building the most effective platforms to bring more economic freedom and to the world and more peer to peer trash useful things to the world and i think an example of that is bitcoin dot com and arguably has done a huge amount to bring more people to to crypto currency and bitcoin cash specifically than just about any other website yet. These developers are saying about dot com. Shouldn't get any money. They have the most money already. They don't need it. Well the fact that we already have a bunch of money shows that we've been effective with the resources that we've had available and so that's the problem with with government entities if the government entity does a bad job. They get more money. If a private business does a bad job they get less money and they go out of business. Those resources wind up being allocated people that use it more effectively and was basically bringing central planning in socialism to bitcoin. Cash in the entire point of cryptocurrencies. Let people opt out of those cyncially command in control. The economic systems allow people to be able to do whatever they want with their own money. And so i think it was a really bad idea and it was sad that caused infighting within the cryptocurrency community and the really shocking part. Is that the people that were in favor of this central planning in central diversion of part of the block reward within trying to call the people that were opposed to it. The you know the central planners bitch was the name that they came up with which was a play on bitcoin in bolsheviks i guess but it just seems really strange that People think that that's a good thing but at the end of the day. And i've been saying this since two thousand eleven if something better than bitcoin comes along great if something better than bitcoin cash comes. I'm to promote whatever option. I think has the best chance of bring more economic freedom to the entire world. And that's why i'm so bullish about bitcoin cash as it works for super fast super cheap super liable payments for every single person on the planet. Whether you're young or old rich or poor black or white. It works for everybody right now today. You don't have to wait for some other future. Technology come into existence. Bitcoin cash works today. And that's what has me so excited about it.
Ethiopian PM says troops ordered to move on Tigray capital
"Ehthiopian prime minister this morning has ordered his army to move on the capital of the tigray region in the north west of the country. This decision came after his seventy two hour. Ultimatum ended for tigray leaders to surrender. The central conflict here is between the new government of ethiopia and the old government of ethiopia. An aid groups have been sounding the alarm about a humanitarian situation that is deteriorating quickly. Tens of thousands of ethiopian refugees have fled the fighting into neighboring sudan. Npr's ada peralta is following this unfolding. He's in nairobi Good morning eater. Hey david let's start with his offensive. I mean the prime minister had been warning about this. It sounds like it's happening. Now what do we know. Yes so prime minister. Abby acclimate who won the nobel peace prize last year. He says that the last chance for this war to have been resolved peacefully has now closed and he says his troops are going into michaela to try to flush out the leadership of the left. The people's liberation front and he says that will try to do everything to protect civilian lives but michelle is a big urban densely populated city. Think of something. Like saint louis and and even the government has admitted that any fighting will result in civilian deaths in abbey's military has warned that they will use heavy artillery and that the left has said that they will defend the city so this war which has been going on for about three weeks now. Hundreds have already been killed. Tens of thousands have fled as you said and this will no doubt Be the most consequential battle so far. I know this is an incredibly frustrating situation for a year to try and cover this all but impossible to get in there and actually see what's happening firsthand But you know there's been weeks of fighting around the capital. What are you hearing about the conditions on the ground. It is hard to report. But i think we can safely say that there has already been Some pretty gruesome killings that the international community is saying could amount to war crimes We know for example that in a village near the sudanese border there was a huge Massacre videos from there have shown family members crying over bodies of their loved ones in the middle of the streets and the government's human rights commission sent a group of investigators there and they say that more than six hundred people were systematically slaughtered. They say that they were killed with machetes. Their houses were set on fire. They say that militants tied ropes to their necks and dragged them to death. The government commission blames a youth militia aligned with the rebels for this but the refugees fleeing into sudan say that it was the militias aligned with the government. Who did this. So we know with certainty who committed these atrocities but what we know for sure is that civilians have already suffered terribly in this conflict. Got it sounds like it. And what about these tens of thousands of people who are fleeing where they going. What are they facing so they are going into eastern sudan will. Carter is based there. He's a humanitarian with the agency norwegian refugee council. And let's listen to a bit of what he's been. Seeing many of total stories of happens not tillery and strikes and parts of western tigray region which is where most of the refugees we've seen have come from and of past couple of weeks. I guess troop movements militia movement through their this season. They've really fred for their lives. Are you suddenly and there. Was this one woman who spoke with who who had fled across the border and her story released stood out. Here's what happened to her. When the conflict began she was pregnant. Nine months pregnant when this broke out and have given birth on the way to the border crossing and had no one around that she knew it's women seeking safety stopped to help her deliver thankfully. There was no complications with the delivery and charges alive at the moment at least sleeping next to everyone in a big communal tent. So david i mean these are the kinds of situations and stories that show you just. What a tough humanitarian crisis. This has also become really What sounds like an awful situation. A dangerous one with a lot of people life. A lot of people's lives at stake

New Generation Of D.C. Statehood Advocates
"On a recent evening about sixty young people in their late teens and early twenties log into a zoom meeting. They live all over the country from new. Jersey to California but they're committed to the cause the organizers start introducing themselves I everyone. My name is Jen Mandel black. I'm Michael I use he him pronouns. Hi Everyone. My name is Jimmy the advocates on this call are preparing to meet with their US senators virtually of course to talk making Washington DC The fifty first state organizer Michael Copy says statehood is one of the key civil rights issues of our time over seven hundred thousand DC residents most of whom are black and Brown folks do not have access. To be the very democracy that surround sound, this big statehood energy is relatively new as recently as a decade ago, statehood was seen as a political dead end Democrats in Congress generally supported it but they didn't make the legislative priority even when they had the chance seventy, nine year old niece Jenkins started advocating for statehood in the late nineteen, ninety s we are the old school we are the gangsters. Of the statehood movement, the Oh Geez back then DC was still struggling to get on solid financial footing statehood did not go over. Well, we were Kinda ridiculed for DC, statehood was not on anybody's limps, grassroots, activists and officials like DC Mayor Mariel Browser made it a priority in this hyper partisan time we're living in DC statehood has become a core part of the National Democratic Platform, the House of Representatives the summer passed a bill supporting DC statehood for the first time in history. The next hurdle is getting it through the Senate which advocates hope will soon be controlled by Democrats. A new generation is on board with this 'cause on the recent zoom call twenty, two year old DC resident demi strap man gives her fellow advocate some advice when it comes to preparing to meet with actual elected officials or their staff you have to be confident to not feel like you're invading their space. They are your elected officials. You have the right to speak with them because she's from DC Stratton no senators to lobby herself and the district's one representative to Congress Eleanor. Holmes Norton can't vote on final versions of bills. That's why young advocates today are hyper focused on getting people from outside the district on board with the statehood 'cause I actually grew up in Pennsylvania. So I kind of took my representation for granted before right moved to DC twenty, four year old Noah wills now lives in the district and runs the advocacy group students for DC statehood he's working to expand their chapters at universities side the district he also wants to get university students in. DC. Bought in while they live here and by doing so they're there really are gateway to the rest of the country wheels and other statehood advocates still have a lot of convincing to do last year in a Gallup poll less than a third of Americans said, they favor d. c. becoming a state. But after this summer's protests over police brutality, some young advocates WanNa push a angle to the statehood 'cause racial justice twenty, two year old DC native Jamal Holtz, points out. The DC is forty, six percent black retreated a second class citizens, and so these statehood is a civil rights issue. Holt says the black lives matter movement and DC statehood are completely intertwined for the first time in his life. He feels like statehood is possible if Democrats take the White House. And Senate and make it a priority. He grew up wanting to be the mayor of Washington DC, and now he's already thinking about adjusting that dream. It'll give me a new goal in life and not limit myself the mayor but make it governor for Wam you I'm Michaela. FRAC to

Know me having to explain any further but I just you know part of me just doesn't feel like one I'm just a more of a creative. Think of these great ideas and I say how are bring this to light you know so I don't think of me. Oh. I want to create all these businesses I think while that'd be a great product that I could sell, and then it usually turns into something else So each thing that I've started historic off one thing and kind of morphed into something bigger you know. But definitely on my plane is just to be a creative lead who has the ability to see ideas before they're made and know that they be profitable and be fine. You know 'cause this for me it's like. The money is you know but I enjoy the process of it. It's fun to me. To see these things come to live come to life rather and so So that's GONNA.

You know engineer doctor lawyer or something like that But my father kind of wanted us to go into a different direction in. So he kinda pushed us into the arts. Okay. So from a age I would say like eight or nine I always had eager to draw actively or play an instrument actively So. I played the cello. for about eight years amongst other instruments but kind of my heart was in art. So I kind of chose that as a thing I wanted to do. So I did art all through high school until school and then graduated went to these you in Richmond and gut graduated with a BFA. What I didn't realize was that I, didn't really have a plan for my life. And it wasn't like that in college I was like wait. So I'm supposed to like pain control like has wanNA. Make money. Like never even dawned on me that I'd like need a job I love. And so this is around the time that. kind of the DOT com boom had happened. So I learned fairly easily how to design websites and so that kind of kind of figuring out the creative side always had was able to keep a job based on the web design skills that I saw graduated with a BFA. Like I said. With his huge creative background but my but but my day job was web design So that kind of got me into building websites, understanding design understanding how the Web, works, understanding marketing. Social, media and and all that fun stuff and that led me into blogging. Okay. So then because I would get, I would feel questions about the blogging, hosting in how to set up a website and so I put blog. Okay. I'll put a blog. And I'll get all these affiliate links and click. Well. You know I figured out the system and I was making like a passive income about a thousand dollars a month and I was like, wow okay. If I had this thousand dollars a month bright IF I sell a product than I probably can like take another thousand dollars. and. So And for launched, I ended up launching capital. because.

Trevor Noah on the Beirut explosion
"Has been a week since the tragic warehouse explosion Beirut that killed two hundred people and forced hundreds of thousands out of their homes, and now for the residents of that city grief is. Turning into rage overseas now to Beirut where anger is boiling over nearly a week after that devastating and deadly explosion, the ammonium nitrate customs officials say was negligently stored here despite their repeated complaints may have been the spark for wider movement protesters took to the streets throughout the weekend, and now at least three key government officials have resigned. Their demand is clear revolution. This weekend thousands of protesters called for a new government in Lebanon and clashed with security forces sent in to disperse the demonstrators briefly occupied government buildings until they were pushed out. Yeah often discovering that governments officials repeatedly ignored warnings about the chemicals that caused that massive explosion. The people of Lebanon have taken to the streets and believe it or not. This explosion is just the tip of the iceberg because for years. Now, the people of Lebanon have been complaining about rampant corruption in all levels of governments and how big a countries are using them as political porn and you know things are bad when the people are saying look, it's not just about the explosion that blew up off the city but Lebanon is yet another example of this larger pattern that's happening around the world, a pattern of countries having to deal with multiple major crises at one time.

My Biggest Lessons From 4 Million Podcast Downloads
"Tae Guys, it is Michaela here and I'm back with another solo episode I. Hope You guys are doing well protecting your energy and protecting your piece. It's so so important especially right now you guys this is the Mossel episodes I have done in a while and maybe doing for a while because we're going to get back to our interviews with side. Hustler's turn entrepreneurs however however. I definitely wanted to jump back in and share my experience giving birth during a pandemic have been doing juggling up getting back to being a mom for Noor and just how I'm easing back into a podcast life, my work life and I'm glad I've been able to catch you guys up and also catch all of you new listeners. Shout you guys for joining the journey as well. the last episode I shared how I did it turning a podcast into a full time business and this episode I want to share the lessons I have learn overall journey podcasting. So four years and four million downloads. Later, this is going to be my breakdown of what I really think contributes to my success. When I was starting out on this journey I, didn't know where it would lead. Of course I had dreams and everyone who starts something you want it to be well received you wanted to be big you want it to be so successful. So of course, I had those thoughts but I also thought that I was hoping to gain inspiration from my guests and figure out what to use my talent. What kind. Of Business to start with talents that have the skills that I have, I did not think that I would focus on the podcast itself and ended up leaving my job two podcasts full-time. So that was a surprising life turn. I tested things out empty always work and in a lot of trial and error I also learned through spending time researching my ideas researching my industry and investing my own money into training conferences. And classes to learn more and then put what I learned into practice immediately and emphasis emphasis emphasis on the word practice because there was no one who had a specific blueprint for what I went to do like once I figured out that I wanted to scale my podcast with certain level. There was no class that I could take that taught me that exactly that's why I teach what I know now podcast Mongols. Because here, I have the blueprint I've done it and I'm doing it and I wanna make it easier for everyone else rather than trying to piecemeal information from all different sources So the practice was essential and now as I reflect, I can identify some of the key factors that have allowed me to have a successful podcast. So here goes, I, have divided it into lessons for y'all already. So lesson number one. Don't be afraid to be known for something for Steinhaeuser pro podcast is about black women entrepreneurs who scaled from side-hustle two fulltime entrepreneur myself included. I'm not afraid to be known for that nor do I shy away from focus on black women because it may make someone else uncomfortable the people who need this show the people who listen to this show span, all races and genders. Okay but but but sir. The reason I focus in on black women and the reason I focused on that specific specific topic is because I want people to understand what this show is about you will have. No. Problem sharing this with somebody else because I. Make It crystal clear what we talk about. So often when my podcast moguls members joined the program, one of the first questions I asked him is what is your podcast about and often they tell me two or three different things Oh i WanNa talk about leadership in corporate America also WanNa talk about you know dating with my girlfriend bring her on as a guest and then i WanNa talk about I don't know travel. And always have to say we weightless. Let's roll it on back in the stroller back because. You are doing this as a catchall because you're afraid to be known for something. This is when we have to work together to refine their podcast topic. What's often behind their answer and their topic being so broad so vague and Goose for a better word. Is there fear of being pigeonholed? But when you are known for something, you're just floating around in the podcast categories not really fitting in nut grabbing anyone's attention because they have no idea how your show will help them how your show entertain them and you're just making your life harder. What is the use of having a show? If no one knows what it's about then they? Can't recommend it. One of the keys to the growth of sidelines Appro is that it was specific and specific things are sharable and sharable things are scalable. So do not be afraid to dig deep and be known for something because if someone can't walk away from listening to your podcast and tell someone else in one sentence, what is about then it's going to be very hard for you. So own your topic.
How Are Employers Treating Workers During The Pandemic
"And we've been talking about how employers are treating their workers during the pandemic with Michael Sein Auto from The Guardian. Michael, what happens to workers? Now we're talking. We're looking at layoffs in a lot of different industries. Is that right? A lot of different industries are still laying off workers. Whether it's as the PPP loans are expiring businesses that have had to close again after reopening because a surge in Corona virus cases to just industries that have survived up until this point Without laying off workers either Cos announcing our warning that mass layoffs or imminent like some of the large airlines, United Airlines said By October 36,000 workers are possibly subjected toe beginning permanently lay it off for load. American Airlines has said that There's been a lot of university systems who are making decisions right now to caught a lot of workers. There was a study a few weeks ago by the Economic Policy Institute that ah, large portion of workers who have lost their jobs during the pandemic. Those jobs are not coming back. They those workers will not Have a job that they had before the pandemic to return Teo on and a lot of industries even if they have started to reopen, like hotels and things like that, they're not At seeing capacity or demand to the point where they're recalling all their workers and the ones that are getting recalled. They might only get a few shifts. You know a week they're not getting full schedules. Is there any silver lining in any of this? Michaela do work. Is there anything positive that we can say about workers in the United States right now? Because this is ah! A very serious and grim picture that we're painting with, obviously, which is necessary. But are there any bright spots? I'm wondering that not too not too many. I think some of the bright spots if there are any and all of Ben The workers who have organized protest strikes worker still organizing Tio form labor unions or organizing with their existing labor unions. Teo pushback on employers or bad practices within their industry. The urgency for for organizing has certainly intensified because of the working conditions caused by the by the pandemic. But there's AH, a report in the Economic Policy Institute in December 20 19 US employer spends around $340 million on union avoidance consultants about one in five union election campaigns involves a charge that an employer has illegally fired. Ah, worker. We've seen that during the pandemic with the Amazon protests. Ah lot of workers who led those protests. Have been fired, lost their jobs. A lot of workers are seeing the the benefits of collective organizing and having a collective voice. It's fan. Inspiring to see these workers on the front lines that are still working there in the pandemic to protest and risk their jobs to improve their their working conditions. And, you know, raise awareness of how workers in these industries are treated, you know, across the board around the country. Michael Sein

I've met in this country. Patriotic, the most non rights hunter, yes, and if you you just you just take for example in a synagogue on Friday A. Press for the Queen and their press listeners now. Donna very much doubt you'll find those in the church. Of England and multi million selling record producer Trevor Horn quoted Leviticus Jewish faith, it says seek the Fortune on.

The country and and they you know the gross like you separate religion. You need them to help with an. Amazing Resource. You know scroll back for these two amazing views earlier. You'll have expressed today which chimed from within Jewish family. Catherine Bob I'll saying came to prominence ten years ago. When at that is conservative? Party conference speaking support the Party's education policies. She slated a culture of excuses of low standards are see bureaucracy and the chaos of classrooms because it keeps poor children poor. After huge rows and barriers put up in front of her. As she confronted a prevailing culture, she sets up the Michaela Secondary, school in Wembley. Her pupils read five. Shakespeare plays in three years that told a culture of kindness which includes helping each other and their families and offering adults there seats on buses in the tube. She also has an incisive word about how black a nation kids are subtly told, then, not British. Do you feel you've had to prove yourself more than most because of your philosophies on education? Yes we take a slightly different way of doing things. God behavior got teaching methods got the ethos, and so it's been a bit of A. Bite to persuade people that this is an option that's worth trying may now with our outstanding off stead, and with our grizold Jesus last year. It seems pretty obvious that this is a a valid way of doing things. But when we started, it was far from being valid. People thought we were a bit crazy frankly to to be doing what we were doing. There is a prevailing wind in education. Still blows against you, Catherine sued. You still are people. They're trying to trip you up all the time. If there are any sort of dropping of standards, I know, that will be disciplined, standards are central to your ethos, but but there's a lot of people not on your side. Yeah, that's true although I have to say many of them have owned by the wayside over the years and not I do feel in a way. Many of them have just given up because we kept on going and it is hard to. To argue against the school that is giving city children chances that they wouldn't otherwise have had. That's teaching them so well. They're you know they really are just defying all the expectations, and also we get over six hundred businesses every year. Mainly Teachers Knoll is teachers. Say My goodness. They're so well behaved. They're so curious there so independently minded. They're so nice, you know. The children are just nice, so when when you got anecdotal evidence like that and you've also got kind of data that shows that we're doing very well. It is hard to argue against it so. People who do argue against it tends to just be. Personal attacks. You know they just don't like me or they don't like. Is They? Don't like school. Stands for an tend to say things like all. No, not at school again. They don't really have any off because there are no arguments, so they dislike as without. Prejudice basically

How are you doing during the pandemic? I haven't been following closely. How things are in London so? Are you basically just staying home? Yes Festival Hi Terry three lovely to the thanks for having me on. Taking it day by day. It's We're not too far behind America. I think weather. Third in terms of how big the impact has been, and how much it spreads. It's it's an adjustment. Put. My my mom is is actually on the front lines and I try to look to how she behaves to guide how I behave and she's really. You know in very good spirits and. Quite excited that she's able to contribute to tackling. The problem so and she's very grateful and. Happy so I keep looking to my mom instead of coming very unctuous. Yes. So let's get to what why did you want to write a series? We're rape and various forms of sexual assault or or at the center of the story. I think in the beginning. I wanted to write about it because it had happened and I. Have a habit of writing. Some sort of peace that's inspired by reality whether it's poetry or music or a one woman, play or TV show, and a because I found it so huge in my life. Seemed only. Natural for me to rise it, but as I began thinking about doing this are the people started sharing their stories with me? Friends Friends of friends, and I realize that many people had some sort of experience that was connected to mind involving consent, and there were so many different ways to explore consent, and how it affects us today so. What Besson, paces first story on the iphone many people could. Find Finding identification in. In. The story Arabella is given a rookie who dreyer drink is spiked and she doesn't know what happened. She doesn't know how it happened. or who did it or who may have witnessed that and she doesn't even know if it really happened or maybe doesn't want to accept the fact that it really happened Was it traumatic for you to write about this and to act the part for some people I think it might have brought on kind of PTSD. Yes especially rising it I would say. Did it bring on PTSD. I was probably already suffering for. Anyway. It was really interesting because it sent me around the bend back into the. Shock! It's suddenly felt very. New It still startled me that it had happened. So rising definitely may made the event feel very presence again, performing it I just loved I really love to. Perform you know I love. I love the Act because there is a team of people that we had a therapist that was. On site at all times, so it felt like I could be safe to explore very dangerous areas in a very safe playground. So I want to ask you if it's okay if I talk with you about your own experience and. And you could guide me with what you're comfortable talking about and what you're not because I don't want to. Cross any boundaries here, so can I ask a little bit about your own experience in how led to the series. Yes. Strength you thank you very much so. Did you experience the same kind of thing that Arabella does where you had a drink that was spike. Were you given a fee and basically lost consciousness and didn't know what happened. Yes! How did you piece together? What had happened like. Did you have friends who could help you? Did you have a similar kind of image in your head of somebody you know wh being a over your on top of you and not knowing who it was or what it meant. Yes! In many ways of Arab fellas story at that point in the series. Is Very similar to mine there are. Differences that I've intentionally cancer. There's always a distinction between myself and our Pella, but yes, I was writing an enormous service production office. That I was making TV show. And went. On a break to me, my friend in a bowl and I had a drink and. Then I was back at work, typing and finishing the episode that was G. And didn't quite. Realize, you know my phone was smashed. I was a mass, but it didn't quite connect the dots until I had a flashback and then yes I had friends who helped me going through Uber Sees Bank statements, cooling other friends to literally try and gather the pieces so all stories. AW, different, but there are many many similarities. Do you think your phone was smashed so that you can call anybody for help or call anybody to report it. Who have an? Oh. Isn't that awful till I. Know that you'll never know. It serves bizarre, isn't it? It's such a strange experience. And I think for also people. They don't even have a flash back tool so. You know it's it's. It's even stranger I had a flash that enabled me to. Go to police to give a DNA swabs, or all these things technically should never have happened. I wasn't supposed to remember anything, so it's. You know it's it's. It's troubling, but also it's is fascinating I. Think there's something about not. Remembering and yet having a flash. It's it's! It's bizarre. So let me play a clip. And this is the first time that Arabella. Her therapist and she still is not even close to having processed. What happened to her so Here's the therapist. The first question. This is about two months after the rape. I'm great. Great great long as I'm around people. When I'm alone. Flashbacks to sometimes against much. You do.

You know that sort of thing changing the lightbulbs jumpstarting the car fixing things around the house organizing plumber, talking to the car mechanic, and so on before that my late father filled this role for me. The strange thing is that I had a very technical job in a totally male dominated field, which included things like wiring, soldiering using power tools, assembling huge sound and lighting systems, and so on. Certainly very capable of my job. The only thing I ever really needed help on was the heavy lifting or being too short to reach something from the ladder. But for reasons that Miam- still exploring I just handed the power of these mainly duties at home to these men, my whole life, my husband leaving me was a huge shock. Aside from a multitude of other things, I experienced something I had never felt before. Helplessness is an awful thing, and although I hated myself for it I found still relied on him. The first time I had a house emergency was failure of the front gate motor when it stopped working I sat on the floor in cried because I did not know what to do. Do. He would know what to do, but he was no longer there and do not want to call him then I pulled myself together and Message Group of friends within a couple of minutes. My other names and numbers of professionals I also ask some people in my street for help. And what are you know? Help arrived in the form of a kind neighbor. One morning my car would not start again. I sank into despair and cried. I needed to get somewhere. He always sort of these things out. And at that moment a dear friend messaged me and said she would come and help me in the afternoon at a commitment for the whole morning, so I called an Uber and got to where I needed to be and got a ride home. She came to help me. The next day I went in myself. Jumper cables and a trickle charger then. I got a new battery. Jumpstarting. Your car is not rocket science. I started doing more things for myself is a hard thing to transition to taking your power into your own hands, but my friend who had been divorced for several years, said to me something simple yet it was profound.

We have a restaurant elegance I'm pretty sure my sister talked about that and we're at the restaurant. It was right after the recession. We're just to figure out how to grind kind of like right now, right? Where like what do we do? What a what do we do and customer walks in? And he asks if he can buyer mich Le Mix from the bar.

Do and I was like I'll do a mobile mentioned other truck. It was like during the height of the truck. Chris, so that was just like. The idea stuck and I just did it, so we just. Go. Ahead! They didn't go away. It's hard to do the. Them each ladder truck. We have a little model here. That's what it looks like it. Again of Vincent Volkswagen? Van Right. Then it's got a like a TV and speakers and a deejay booth inside the taps stuff from. Are you. Going though on. The model the gift, but yeah we, we have the real one and the Real William Take it every weekend. We rented out and and in all of this happened, so we'll see what happens with A. Working model though this little woman. And I'M GONNA, open a model. Now I know man, don't tell me how much different. Colors. Might make them. Suffer number for those of us who are on an uninitiated with Mitchell others. Could you explain what they are? Each Other. In its very core brought down to us essence, altered beer, beer cocktail, and the the the most purest form should either. It's beer, lime and salted rim. But we were from Oaxaca so armee are are a little more complex like like everything in Oaxaca and. And Mitch Mitchell others, or it's a weird thing because you different than depending on where you are in Mexico or even La. They make it differently they'll. They'll do something different so even even in Oaxaca well. We make kind of like a mutual alibi now. Other places they call it a mutual. Other places they. Yeah, they call me WanNa win. A lot of garlic or was it wasn't. I got. Attitude a lot of. It. Along Bald, yes, bold strong. Is, this beautiful? Virgin Mary's are like the version of that right. That would be the closest cousin. Similar Bloody Mary No. It's similar, but the thing is. Beer. Oblivious has tomato juice. Tomato juice blanding agent so like tomato twenty and just kind of softens it up. So like I mean she has line base so lime base. You can tomato and make it more of a bloody. That are very. They're very late and that would, and that's the thing with culture by culture is weird and fluid especially here in La, so the on restaurant you walk into. They'll make early.
"michaela" Discussed on The Exsellence Mindset Podcast
"Really traumatic experiences being a solo traveler before I started with the whole Lincoln stuff Where had a security guard that Tried to get into my hotel room years and years ago when I was traveling to California and are when you were in there. Yeah I had to file a police report It was one of the scariest moments in my life. And so Yeah by bad experience. I kind of whatever perspective that you know. It's nice to to believe in the good in everybody but the reality is is that there are a lot of people that will take advantage of people that are traveling solo female Enso's security is really important. Not just for me but also for my clients like. I've I see especially the contact information on your Lincoln and always looking at at to make sure that personal phone number. People put their personal addresses on there. I see that every once in a while it's like it gives me a little bit of a panic attack yet so It definitely has everything but you learn. Go right yeah and I think that there's a lot of wisdom just even in that because in the sense of like people do it now like oh it's no big deal like I just have a couple hundred connections and an but you don't know what's going to happen yes two years from now. That's what happened to me it. It literally happened overnight and all of a sudden I'm getting all these phone calls back in two thousand sixteen and I couldn't figure it out and like me and my boss my boss was like we'll have the Google your name and I'm like No. I never thought of doing that. So He googled my name for me and he's like Michaela. You had your resume still online with your phone number your address like everything and so thank goodness I worked for an IT company because they really like hammered into me six care but But yeah that's that's a really good point because you really. I didn't have any issues with my resume being online. I was just I. I still am a regular person but I I. I have a really small network over a few hundred people. And nobody's going to call me randomly by it happened overnight where I went from that to having thirteen thousand connections and this thing was spread like wildfire. Might my article. And that's when things got really scary got so wild okay. So on a more serious note So anybody that has followed you for any period of time Knows that you are now walking through in the midst of getting amazing opportunities. I know you've been able to hit stages that have been on that dream board and like things have been super exciting But also I know one thing that you shared is desire to to be a mom. Yeah so you have been walking through and I'm sure it was privately at first and some point you made this concert concert conscious decision to open up a little bit about it and so Now stepping through a fragility treatment. And so how? How has that been I mean again you know. You went through challenges early in life. You know kind of this roller coaster and you've been on this great ride and so now you make this decision like okay now it's time to To get pregnant and the baby and so how. How did that hit you? I mean personally I I can imagine but even from a professional side things like how does that all come into play now for you and how do you continue to stay focused on serving your clients growing your business all the while? You really really have to be careful because I know that there's a lot of sensitivity around what you do and and the and the way you are as you're going through these things yeah you know it's it's been interesting watching because right now we're in the midst of grown virus and There are so many similarities that I can see right off. The Bat between people that are now going through This mindset shift and really struggling from a mental health perspective dealing with it and the reason I say that is because you go from okay. We're ready we're going to start a family that's going to happen just like everything else right. I've got it on my dream board happen And that's one of those things that I was like. Oh I can't hustle to make this thing happen and That moment when you realize that there are things in your life that you will not have control over is probably one of the hardest journeys that you will have to go through and it's going to be the same with Corona virus and people that are out there that have lost their jobs. That are Stuck inside that are worried about their family members things that you cannot control and we like to believe that we're constantly in control and so that shift is really really difficult and and and so. I'm watching and even this idea like not knowing what's going to happen. None of us really know what's going to happen in the next few weeks. I have been walking through that over the past few years. Not Knowing what's going to happen if it will ever happen you know. It's always important to have been phased in all those things But there's always that that dark cloud that's looming. Ogura like this is all unknown. Were like walking through like almost like a jungle and not knowing if there's any light on the other side so but it's been great and in a few ways the night while a I've been able to Kinda now the gate through that I've also been able to share my story with other people that are going.

"michaela" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"It won't be forever for adamant also as a challenge wjr to everybody to find new things to be absolutely is but then at what point do I police. What black man gets to say you know but then John Again? I don't know it's case basis and it's the case by case that I think is rattling everybody's cages because because people aren't I guess is what made me sad when I was watching it and this is I think ultimately my point about the four percent and the ninety percent and there's random other percent Xanthi didn't account for which is which has a big question mark over it. which is I guess? I just feel like in some of your questions. What have you learned? And it's like I guess I've just learned that people aren't new on like they're not nuance thinkers and I'm I wanNA comment on things. Sometimes as somebody who understands gray you know and I realized that because we because because we have to bring some people who don't think in gray you know they they're black and white thinking and that some of it is really whack you know. Yeah I mean like that in the lying in the kitchen by people don't deserve fill in the blank you know like I said this kind of a person. Is You know this race is this you know yes the lives matter people. I feel like we're trying to. Oh you know pull them into into sort of a kind of more inclusive -clusive mindset and I think you make a great point. I think maybe you're right. I think as much as I had glee at some of his like really wrong. Thanks show that he was saying sort of what I was maybe is like it was triggering a nostalgia for like what commonly used to go. That was yeah. Wow that is ah. You shouldn't say that but maybe it's okay that we don't i. It's like I say it's case by case in terms of like the topics expressway. Just there's a lot of it this like. It's not new concepts it's just it's not. It's not new concepts and I do. I think the bottom line for what's happening at least in this country is the demographic shift to a white minority and that's part of this is wight beep to they say to somebody to in an entitled person quality equality feels like oppression and. That's I think kind of what's happening right now is that we are. We're moving into into a time where why people aren't GonNa and I don't know how long it is but like it's not going to. They don't get to call their their power is diminishing and there and white you know the white hegemony is not letting that go very confused. Yes yes and white. Women are very confused because then you've got intersection -ality so now I'm like okay as a woman when a man is saying really offensive things things I'm like you don't get to do that. But what if it's what if he's a man of color. Yeah okay well. Is he saying things against me as a woman or is he you saying things against the okay what if saying things against the LGBTQ okay so Now who now who gets to have in this is where it does get very confusing. And and this is I think how we have to hold so many things at once. I don't know and this this is why I don't give advice anymore. Yeah well and there's also too there's also to in this in this same kind of Bain. There are things that just aren't worth talking about out in public in their topics that happen like on twitter that I might want to address that I'm just like yeah. I don't need to weigh in on this because on your hunger strike because they're not bringing back the way you have But I mean there's just like Oh this is just this is just I'm I'm not. I'm not even going to be doing yourself any favors by wading into this. I'll just let other people fight this one out. Yeah So but we do need economy. So you have a you have do you. You have a new movie coming out. Iran's I've been here and really wonderful things about it so happy you dig it a lot. It's like super. It's everything I was just talking about. You know it's funny as hell. It's a little Raunchy but it is so much pay those and it's so so loving is really really loving movie but it's about struggle and and it's it's everything kind of in one in one house so it's like if you don't know what kind of movie you WanNa WanNa see and everybody's arguing about it. You should go see Britney rented marathon. Because everybody's GonNa get something and at the end of it. You're you're gonNA feel so inspired. Yeah Yeah and you kind of just from the trailer. You're kind of like A. Yeah like everybody in the movie. Nobody is how I meet. I think they are and they're sort of positioning in the trailer as her bitch so but it. I'm sure but I know I imagine. If you're going to run a marathon together there has to end up being a camaraderie. Yeah it's just rate. Well it just you never know who where for your support systems. Yes well also too. You have a thing you you have what I've been accused of for years. You have a likability accused of her Berbie. No you have a likability thank you so I think this pitches Constantino. But that's because you can get away with it because if you don't like it Kinda like in a there's some there's actresses that are like may they don't seem like there's that pleasant so they have to kind of played the heroine. Tell me one time like he said to me because I was playing a really nasty nasty character and he said you know it's so funny I've been doing this a long time and actors who are really just mean always are so concerned on sat like but do I seem likable but do I like he's like he's like some of the nicest actors I work with are like love to play the shittiest. I see I'm kind of getting that point where I am getting kind of I've been able to do some things. Why get to play the ASSHOLE Because they're you're like well you're so likable. Yeah that you that you can get away with being awful right. And I'm so fucking thrilled and I think too as I age into to this fucking baby face of mine that I'll be able to actually play some really great Dick's Super Dick. I I just in my golden age of Dick. I sound like a humble brag their you know saying but I just was. I remember when he said said that about actors because I found so fascinating like if I had just seem well I just wish that I had more gravitas. You know like or you know what I mean I just wish I. It's funny. I love to go there. You know but I think about these actors who changed the temperature of a room you know like they walk in. You're like who did it get chiloe oxygen. Yeah I've worked with some atmel actress where you feel. Palpable menace. Yes from them. Yes yes and I'm just like I was loved to bring that kind of fire a but whatever you WanNa do murder somebody now I know bloody. Where's my trailer well? Well Good luck with that. I can't I can't wait to you. See it the where are you going to do. You have any like specific aspirations that you're heading towards I mean obviously direct direct direct Auburn selling you to direct but I. I don't know I really want to. I really want to sink my teeth in some juicy beautiful film. You know in a in a really meaningful way. I finally got for years on a great show casual where I got to do and I really love to show just do like A. I WanNa do a period piece. I want to do like Jane austen. She shall piano now. I haven't yeah. Yeah I love that not I wanNA. I WanNa be like a just like a sociopath sociopath I wanNA play like just like a violent bucking monster. I would for sure cast you as no I'm not I'm I'm not being serious like I think that's the thing is 'cause like there's in every like every guy quality and I think those are the dues at scare for me the fucking turn. Yeah absolutely. Oh my gosh all right I gotta go bye bye enjoy merger. Uh well I guess the the. What have you learned part of this question? I gotta hit him because otherwise the executives cutive here at the podcasting company. Just be down my throat. It's just came down. Forty four th floor higher ups who are all twelve years old seven assistance with clipboards ready to pull the plug operation. What have I learned? I think I named seventeen things. Yeah Yeah But mostly I have just learned. There's nobody in charge so we have to do one on one with each other. I really thought like we'd always have parents like the government would be parents and you know and now I just wearing a time where I realize like Oh there's snow parents. There's children children. There's little babies in control right now. Little Egos and so on municipal like local level. We just have to start to take care of one another and let that hopefully go up the chain. I always have said because my my mother was a small business. Owner UH stepfather was a small business owner. So you know my teen years were spent working for them and being in there and it just being. There's no business plan just like Oh shit. That's gone wrong. I better deal with that. There's no forward thinking it's just all waiting for something to happen sitting sitting until something happens and I thought it somehow out in the big professional adult world old. There'd be no it's still the biggest organizations. The biggest corporations giant juggernaut occur not contraption operations. Everyone's just like it's fucking wizard of Oz. Yeah they're all just like I don't know Oh shit there's not a planning. There's not. Nobody's really quite sure what they're doing. We're all just one megalomaniac with like controls like it's I'm telling you it's like wizard. Sort of odd. It's just such the illustrative version of us. which is just like I have a booming voice but signifying nothing? It's it's like I always think that full of sound and fury I know I know it's a faulkner thing too isn't it. Yeah sound on fury read. I forgot what I was GONNA say. It was really really good to ooh fuck. I'm so sorry that's all right To me fair friend to make him forget concede Shakespeare for me. The last I saw a the last Shakespeare thing it was in the park in the Shakespeare in the park in New York City Eddie and I had this moment whereas like I don't have to ever see anymore Shakespeare. Yeah but when you stunned well I know but it just even the done well and I've seen it done. Well I just thought okay. It's just like I. I see it's hard hard to know what's going on mazing because there's nothing. I watched twenty times. Like I haven't watched Star Wars Twenty Times. And that was my favorite movie grooming. Okay maybe I watched Let's say another movie. I love you know Eternal Sunshine of my IRA watched twenty times but Shakespeare's Shakespeare over fifty times. Yeah Yeah not me. I think if anybody takes anything away from this. Is that Shakespeare sucks. We've learned and it's important. I know it's important but I just you know yeah. No people didn't live this long in Shakespeare time so they wouldn't be watching anywhere Shakespeare. Right right yeah exactly. Yes I'd be dead by from syphilis by now you good thank you for your children killed..
"michaela" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Television and comedy it is a fairly friction lists Envir- you know like sort of path for you say in relative terms So there's just lots of times where the the lack of you know the the Conan show started it was all white man and you kind of comfy happy. Yeah there was just like a and then you go. You know we'd go do sort of Like panels at the at the Museum of Television. The you know they'd in kind of in the up and comers to ask questions and it was it would be how come there's no how come there's no black people so you know and it was like. Oh yeah that's a good question. Gosh I never thought of it you know and it has to be forced upon does because you know if somebody came to my house us and said you know how come there's no window treatments. Yeah not that women are winter. But you know you're like oh I was comfortable. I never noticed it. You mentioned it like this place could really right winter tree and again. It's like thirty degrees cooler in in here. It is. It's true it is like it's also a you have to remind the white male. I mean throughout the guy. I'm not I'm not saying like I'm some big huge feminist hero or something but I definitely more so than most man I think because I was raised mostly by women there. I didn't have a lot of male presences in my life so I think that I do have more are of a likelihood to see things from a female perspective or think like what is this like for the woman world. Probably where women were like in the kitchen drinking wine. Wild mended blink. No women did everybody's integrated women did women there. Were you know my folks divorced. I was four and there just wasn't a man around and you know and that was an. We moved in with my grandmother and my grandmother and my mother were you know they did did everything that they ran. But my life you know. And so. But I mean there's been instances of like this is just like a very sort of elemental elemental won the ear looking for the joke of. Here's something that will ensure everyone to watch this thing you know like this is. There's something boring but here will spice it up with something that everyone loves and everyone will want to watch and somebody says like a sexy girl dancing and it's like you know there's something other than heterosexual males in the world. So that when you're saying like this is the universal thing that everyone will want to see Z.. There it's like white white guy. Go White Hetero guy goes sexy girl dancing and it's like there's a little bit outside yourself. Now here's a here's a great thing is that as I was driving here. Every billboard has at that was passing and every bus depot and bus stop and a billboard on a on a bus. was these female centric tricks like one with Kobe. smoulders called stem town like that was everywhere. And as like Oh look at that and then I kept seeing the same. You know billboards. Allison Tolman is starring on this other show and her face holding a little girl and I was just like one after another as like this sorrow sorrow that every bill passing right now is is women. centric show it's getting better is better. Yeah and it's like we're teaching dudes. How do come into our stories is so cool? Oh it's great. Yeah we'll in like I'm always said one of the best things about getting on twitter for me and and twitter has been real. I I mean I know in number of women who became comedy writers because they were funny on twitter And and there was something it tended to be more egalitarian format. uh-huh and there were a lot of funny women that got noticed because it was equal playing field and they're also think I think there is something about just just that this little joke nugget and and women that are good at it like it's just there joke. Nugget is so much different than the male joke. Nugget and mature named whack. Twa just whack o one of the best joke writers in the world. I want to just On believable could like her. She's a she's like a nuclear reactor for and it's and it's yeah and it's she does not then like she. You takes something that everybody's taking a swing at and just drops a nuclear bomb right onto the best way to say. Yeah that's the thing. Does I was like I was kind of turning this concept over in my head. I couldn't get there and I couldn't get there in six word right so but I you. You know I've often said like I. I really like I just I funny women. I'm still married to one and I mean and I've been surrounded by them and someone. My best friends are funny. Women and I love the funny women and and I like to like more than funny amen. And I don't know if it's because I'm such a great feminist or the fact that I've been hearing funny man for fucking ever and now now there's just like a lot a lot more funny women who are being funny not in a way it's like I gotta be funny. The way men are funny happened for a long time like now. There's AW my pussy this can't say you can say whatever you want your pussy. Whatever mine what I don't say my pussy? I'm quoting my pussy. No but I'm just mean. I fell into that to that rat trap for a little while where I was like. I'm going to be more disgusting than any man just to sort of that'll be my Induction into the club. Well and there there are female male comics who are brilliantly filthy And but then there are a hundred. Yeah Amy Schumer Brilliant Brilliant Sarah Silverman brilliantly brilliantly brilliantly filthy and on says uncomfortable 's terrifying things rash and then there's like hundreds and hundreds of women women going like well. I guess I have to be filthy. Yeah which is. I think that's happening less and less. Yeah not to bag fellow ladies but yeah. I think it's I think it's a trap. You know. God bless women who can do super blue but keep it fresh young. I I do all of that and no one I like. I mean like like filthy stuff from everybody. I don't like people to solve topic. You probably have to end. How long are we going? We are going to long. So we'll get we'll hurry up here. I could talk to you all day. Well me too. That's what happens when the other Tanzi started out. I started out of this thing is. I'm really gonNA stick to an hour and it's really falling apart Thumbs up that's the one of the Best Sean. I actually just live. Show Biz dream in a recording studio somebody on the other side of the glass. That is such a moment and you did it is. I'm I'm reaction Shaw. Aw Elton John and this is Benny in the jets. Yeah nobody would go on the Tanjug now. I want to hear it Clinton. It's also a dangerously controversial Tanja attention. How do we feel about this? You know we'll see well. I'm on the plane coming back from Colorado yesterday and I must be nice. You know it's where I go for dinner now. I was there for the telluride film festival as a spectator and I Bad Flyer as you know and so until my sleeping pill kicked in I started watching the Chapell David Chapelle stand up thing. It's really audacious. Yeah it's I had so many feelings. I wish you thought so. We could talk about but I had so many feelings because I love that. We've come so so far that there are some things that we just don't fucking say anymore to say you know I love that. That's ninety percent of Michaela Watkins. Four four percent of Michaela Watkins is about to say that I do miss a tiny bit and this is like I know that this can be a slippery slope. So I'm saying saying this as like for people who microdosing you know what I mean. It's just like microdosing versus becoming a full on drug addict. There's four percent of me that really mrs time when Comedians Comedians not our lawmakers not policymakers but comedians could say the fuck it anything get to because they're doing so comedic commentary on our world and you can when we as people can decide ourselves if we like it or not you go and and I he goes there. He's like goes they're in a a very audacious way and says things that are supremely polarizing and gave me hives but also did it in a very harry. Like if you're GONNA do it did it in the most funny way and that line is so blurry you know and and I feel like in a weird way we have to talk about that blur because I think what what we are doing with again. I ninety ninety four percent of me is all about like we don't need to say half the shit we used to say like we did it. It's probably not great. It really other is a lot of people. Alan really tragic ways. We need to do it anymore. And then part of me is like but I don't know that I want police comedians. Well doc my take on it is that we are in A. We're in a huge change period. You know especially like just the fact that in my in my work lifetime The the the sort of like the just the progress that's been made in terms of like women just not being treated like shit you know and and they're being awareness of you can't do that you can't so we're on a period I think of somewhat of an over correction And it's not gonNA last forever. Yeah and it's not GonNa but there are things where it's sort of like look to say. Oh Yeah Racial. Stereotypes are bad. But you gotTa admit that this kind of people really is like this to me. That's not a truth teller. That's not like anything. That's a challenge or anything it's really kind of just contrarian is It's like this is naughty. I'm going to say what's Naughty Hurry for me. And there is an audience that will that will lap that up and go like he's saying what's really true and because it's usually a he yeah and and and it frequently a he that has had to deal with some kind of consequences right. You know most most comedy males that have dealt with consequences and up on the PC is ruining the world bandwagon because they wished they could. It'd be in a time when white men were unassailable. Pretty much and white men could say whatever the fuck they wanted right now. We're learning like none of white men can't say everything that they want. So yeah it might feel it might feel constricted..
"michaela" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Loves So you end up in Boston with your mom. And how does that translate into Showbiz Gal that which is as a you know a really modern it says on my my personalized license plate. Wish Showbiz this gas. Gal Oh God just GonNa get it. Show Biz get it. They'll be are inside jokes. Everyone will hate you so I feel like this is sort of a common thing is my mom just one day was put up or shut up. You know ice. She said I signed you. Up for I was visiting my dad in Syracuse. Come back on the trains. Pick me up and she said You're auditioning for the community theater here. You're and you're it's a British farce called see how they run. And you're auditioning for the made and I signed you up. And how old are you want point. Fifteen and why does she do this because you have always been like. I'M GONNA be an actress. I think it was more like. Why didn't you push me to be an actress? I should've I wanted to be an actress. I have a grandmother. My father's mother who got married at seventeen who always wanted to be an actress and blamed everybody for her not being an actress because you know she got married at seventeen and was very cheap Austira but very funny I guess I never knew her much at all until so she was very sick and so my mother you know. They had a very strange relationship and my mother said I'm not going to have another Watkins -taying they could've would've should've been an actress so do it or don't shit okay. Lady I think maybe I was sixteen and so so I went and I and I had spoke with a British accent in all my. I'm the maid. Now's a little Australia and my cockney and I got it and I was just bit. Is there a different. Like if you had your druthers stage actress or stage and just because again I'm from Syracuse. That's what Showbiz there wasn't film crews around felt like such a very sort of alien dream you know I went to theater school. I did class classical theatre training onto college buses versatile. I moved to Portland Oregon after very starvation induced year in New York City Why I Portland just ended up there on a road trip with a girlfriend we? She was a good friend of mine in New York and she was like. Hey do you want to blow this clam bake and go drive across country and my parents van and I was like well. Let's see let me count. How much money I don't have four dollars? Yes please I could rent out my room. US that You know support and we'll just go for a month and get the fuck out of the city. 'cause it's killing me killing older support and twenty two and I ended up in Portland and I was like in. What is this magical place? Where having the hill all it's where to go to retire was not a joke and I wasn't hyperbolic I should say? I worked as a bartender. There and I did theater and I started to become a good actor for the first time. 'cause I was really bad really. Oh God yeah I was pretty unwatchable and through school. Yeah I was. I want a fucking crackup like I make room pissed themselves but my Shakespeare and Moliere and all that was garbage. Why was that? It's just I I that's also why I just had no life experience to dry. Everything felt so phony on inauthentic. Talk to me. It felt like everybody was putting on these airs and trying to be my laws and just like everybody. I felt like love the costumes more than anything and but everybody was such A. You know they a lot not everybody but my class were naturally very good and they. They kept getting better and better and I kept wanting to smoke more pot and kiss more boys and I just think I should have if I could do it all over again. I think I think what I really probably Shoulda done is gone and live my life a little bit and then go into theatre school because by the time I graduated I remember thinking I wish I had this brain on my freshman year. Wish I brought this this girl to the table because now I feel ready to learn I was. I was just a late bloomer. I just I just I just had to like yeah. Exercise some demons I think for me I also can see too but I mean I have sort of jaundiced view of the theater school just because I took a couple theater classes and I've I've talked about it before here where I just felt like what and why. Why are we doing this? And and there's and there is something I understand it. I understand. Yeah I still don't fully stood on twenty two two year old. I mean unless you really like and this is what I mean about what we're talking about before we started recording about kids these days they really a lot of them have come to at the table with such incredible understanding of the human condition in many ways. You know and what it is. Just be a person and Ano- no themselves so extraordinarily well that you know that kids can come out at a really young age you know in a time where that was just not even on the table like when I was growing going up or you know what they fixate on what they don't fixate on is just always so amazing to me you know. I'm so impressed with this batch of kids like they're so empathic there so they just understand why eating meat might not be a great idea. You know I just. These are terrible examples bulls. I'm so sorry but they just feel like they get big complicated notions ideas and they just get it. You Know I. I didn't and I just feel like these kids may be could've gone to my theater. I couldn't and you know I I wasn't ready to look at my shit yet either. I didn't have a context for it. I didn't have enough distance from anything. Any of my pain and sorrow I. We're still processing. I'm a very slow processor and I didn't know how to conceptualize anything in my life and be like. Oh that's because of this or that's because because of that and this is how step in and be another person just I just I just didn't know how to bring myself to my work yet and at all and then all of a sudden I realized Oh acting it's listening and responding imagine just responding. How I I would respond and then I got to know myself? Yeah I set out to be a film actor because I went to film school and that was sort of where my where my focus. This was yeah And I started doing Improv. You know because I was you know. It's sort of like a kid. I wanted to be in film and I worked in production. I and then I kinda wanted to write but I kinda wanted to perform and so it's kind of all this sort of churning mishmash of all of it and I like I have Acted in lots and lots of things and but I really don't know how to act like I just for me. I'm always I've always always said and I've had people get mad at me for saying this. I was like for my what I do as an actor is just try to lie. Convincing is just yeah. I'm not a basketball coach at. I'm not you know let you know I'm not this person and in the same way that you do you know when you learn to lie and just to try to get away with things you learn about like adding little details or how you use your voice or don't over salad and so for me. I've always kind of just kind of thought like well. This is a person on the page and I'm supposed to make everyone one believed that this person is rainy or that. I'm this person and so I. I don't really have technique so much of what people talk about. When they learn acting is just a mystery to me and as I've gotten the older and I think better at acting it's all I can do is my processes watch myself in things which I don't like doing for the anyway the first thing and watch myself and go? That wasn't good. I don't do that you know. Just kind of like South Middleton. Yeah just know that like that. That could be better. And it's just like this like just having a taste like what's good and what's bad yeah. And just regulating relating that as time goes on and learning from other people too like earning learning from actors that are amazing. Just just Kinda and I don't even know like it's not like you can. It's a granular thing. You take little things you just think. Oh Wow that person's sense of self possession in or whatever you know it's just one of the most amazing acting like watching somebody act experience I ever had was a guest spot on will Arnett had a show called the Miller's I think it was calls on. CBS for one for one season right for people that don't know when when you do a multi camera before an audience Sitcom You sit in the makeup room before you start speed speed through. Yeah and you just do you do do you guys will be all coked up but usually because you don't you don't WanNa mess up the makeup we blow it up each other's asses how we did the seed through and you just sort of like making sure everybody knows their lines and you just kind of zits identity and Margo Martindale was a regular on that show watching her to speed through just intensity and she was just. It was one of the most amazing things I'd ever I just was like. She was just rattling through enemy in their Sitcom lines or not. I have to. I used to be somebody who could just be like. What's in the fridge? Yeah well that's mine. No then put it down okay. Well if you're not gonNA DRINK IT I'm gonNA drink. You know I used to be able to do that. But the it's weird I'm having all these dumb little revelations but I realized that I cannot do that anymore. I have to act it every single time. I do it because if I phone it in one time. I think I'm I'm afraid I'm GonNa find it on the day. Yeah so I and plus I'm always trying to find. I'm always trying to find new things constantly like and do takes twice the same way ever really you know I mean sometimes director goes just like that. Can you do it. Justice fucking boom in the shop. But I do the same thing because it's like you want to give them variation again very issues but I also have this idea..
"michaela" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Start this now. Hi everyone this is the three questions with Andy Richter and that's Michaela Gayle Watkins talking on the other end of the the pod. We have two cups one string. Yeah we have a pod between us. Which is the name of my memoir? Well I'm glad to have you here. I'm I'm I don't know the very well but we know a ton of people in common and I do but you're also like one of those people that I feel like I do know I know what you mean. Yeah it's true. and Ah you're like kind of like you're like me like there's nothing to precious the I mean there's things I probably wouldn't tell everybody in the world but for the the most part pretty open book. I don't know you seem very familiar to me. Yeah well especially for what I do for a living. The the the the people that are that you get the sense like oh I'm talking to WHO this person is. All the time is is it is. It's not necessarily rare but it is a distinct thing and I think it is in the minority of show Biz assholes and seemed to be like. You're a whizzy wig person. What you see is what you get? Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah and I oh I don't feel like I know you at all. Nobody ever say that. Well I'm a big techy. That's why you know garbage in garbage. Oh Oh and I'm I'm just a star Star athlete. Well we and we have a bunch of friends in common too. We know a bunch of people in Com. That's true some of your your your Chicago contingency. I've never spent any substantial time there other than to shoot one thing one week. One time and Gap but I like it and I'm from Syracuse. So New York which is like like Chicago adjacent. I mean it's it's more midwest than it is east coast hosts like I. Yeah I can see that. Yeah when I first moved to New York I was surprised at how country upstate New York. you know I know and you say where you from an attorney but that's what your questions. Yeah but if you say that to anybody you know and I say upstate New York. They're like Oh. I Love Westchester County. No no keep going going until you hit Canada right inbreeding. Really Starts Yeah. Let's get. Let's get to that. You're Syracuse's were you born there. I was born there having memorial hospital. And Ah your folks are academics. My Dad is a professor of math professor at Syracuse. He just retired but he's still. He's still working away doing in math honestly when time I picked him up. Because I had to go to an audition like when I first moved to La. And I dropped him off at the tar pits and as one does one drops mission go to the tar pits have a field day and I came back and when I told him I was going to pick him up and he was lying on the lawn. Let's say double park my car's throwing the hazards and run over and be like Dad. Had I'm picking you up now. We're here and he's like. Oh I'm so sorry. I was just lost in a math problem. Like sorry regaled taken. Are you in any way that math because math to me is so. Yeah I'm math fish. I'm not his kind of math. He does combinatorial and playing theory. I more like I can play aboard. I figured out sort of Oh I think I know how to win it settlers of Catan like pretty. You know pretty early on that kind of thing or I'm I'm strategic coal well in terms of I always loved card games and puzzles that My Dad and I always love. It's very fun thing for me like this train is going of this amount of time and try to figure it out like those were exciting fun games so I used to love to balance my checkbook. I used to love it or someone do it for you now. Now it's the shit show. I think I might go to jail. Maybe sure site. I don't know what's happening anymore. I like everything is credit card before it was like when you are living paycheck to paycheck. And your your wage is based on your tips and everything that the only upshot I would say that time in my life was I knew exactly what was happening all the time and how much money you had. Yeah and I mean it's also so like it's a burden because you're like. Oh that person ordered another beer okay. That's GONNA set me back but at the same time I was like doc. I'm going to have a stake. 'cause I earned it this week you know and you could and that was a stress free. You never you're never out of your meat. Or I was understandable mathematician. I had I had to when I inc.. which are you incorporate in corporate unity? Yeah something I mean. I don't know if some people know but it just basically it's a tax shifting away become become you become you know so sad but donations only tax deductible for people who are incorporated is a Lotta a lot of that shit just like it just sucks you know people trying to do good and the the only incentive they had was that was sometimes test tax. deductibles they were like okay. It's not a total ship. You know I don't WanNa get too much off on this tangent but it does seem like there is a real pro cruelty vibe live. That is kind of like. Let's let's try and I out the most needy as right aggressively is let's make let's make Giving and caring as difficult as possible. Yeah let's let's sort of de incentivized just basic decency like not gotta value. I think that I think that it's like some sort of me. Jerk reaction to what they call compassion. No No Anthony income distribution. Or whatever you know the the redistribution of wealth you know like they think that like they. They don't like the notion that any of their money might be taken away to be given to poor people because they think which is you know. It's like in a good living and I could never ever in a million years think I deserve every penny I get like for being on a talk show I. I'm I'm doing what used to do for free right. I'm getting paid very well for it. So the notion that like I every pennies mine is just bananas honest to me but there are people that feel that way you know and and I think they're just the notion that giving to poor people that's been the hardest thing thing about these last few years for me is that realization is just like not everybody. I just assumed especially like I'm not Christian but I grow up in a Christian sort of town and work environments and I you know I absorb like a lot of what is talked about. I've seen every embroidered pillow. And they all have this whole giving one to other whole thing and I just sort of thought we collectively agreed that we're gonNA take care of each other and and then I just realized in the last few years that there are people who who just fundamentally they don't have they don't have that sort of file in their download they they just or it's not uploaded to their mainframe and they just don't really care want to feel any and I. It's just so strange to me because it just feels so embedded in I being I think what happens is there's a tribalism where people think. Oh yes I believe in the golden rule but the notion of others doing to others as you would have them. Do you know the others is like well. There are others that I do that in that Out will fall under that and then there are others that are just like they're not me not I don't have to really think of them because they're so different from me. It's you know I mean not like I've been a saint my whole life. Let's be honest to me but when people made fun of me as a kid I learned very quickly how to do unto others. I will make fun of you that I was pretty good at it. Sometimes you know but then as you get older. You're like us not. I guess it's sort of a sign of weakness that I've default to that. So yeah maybe I'll try to leave the world better better than I found it. I find too young people because as a young comedian or young comedy person. There was a lot of of you. Call it whatever you want. Ball busting ragging on the Chicago is ragging on each other pasta. I moved to Boston when I was fifteen fifteenth. And and that's what you do you know. There's all this kind of like insult comedy and as time goes Zayn. You're just like Oh you know what. That's Oh no. Yeah there's a toxic city to that. I don't think I want to partake in and I honestly feel like I'd rather say Nice things to people whose company I enjoy them. Say like you know like well. That's you you fucking idiot if we could just do ninety ten ten. That's pretty good. Ninety percent like try to be are higher sells ten percent of the time. If we're going to just get out. People need an outlet off gas. Yeah it's gotta off gas if you're like fuck this fucking guy. Get out if you have to do that. Like keep it ten or below present. There's nothing nothing. Nothing wrong with harmless therapeutic bitching. Yeah just like sitting and saying like that fucking in guy and there. He was non confrontational. It's just again like I said it's off gassing like this poison judgment builds up and every once in a while you gotTa Yeah Dump it out. You'RE GONNA you're going to do something more stupid or you're going to start to resent being well. I hope we've we've out. Everybody has learned everything there is about being a good person. Look they're they're still there on the edge of their seats. I know so. Let's get back to your dad was he. Because I just in that little microcosm you told me was he and engaged parent yes and no. After my parents split he became more and get which I was eight or nine and then it was a very stressful fulltime. Both my parents were totally out to lunch. You mean jazz reeling from the divorce. Yes it was the seventies so they were out for blood like they didn't know another way to divorce. It was sort of like Kramer versus Kramer was like in. Didn't even start out pretty. It just went straight to ugly and I didn't know anybody else whose parents were divorced so there was really no template for that job and there was no hiding it from you. There wasn't I mean Jonah and the two older sisters one just smoked pot through the entire. She was six and a half years older than me so she was done. The other one is like a a serious intellectual. She's awesome bad ass but at the time she was a supreme next level nerd and she she learned Japanese graduated high school early and got the fuck out of here so she was like she just put her head in a book so two very different effort ways of dealing with it but I was like eight nine and I just absorbed all of that. You know I wanted to kind of fix it and fix them and You know I just kind of wanted to normalize their whole everything because everything was so disrupted. Did they confide in you did. They share Over share like aspects of it. Yeah he did. I wish I was a little more protected..
"michaela" Discussed on RuPaul: What's The Tee with Michelle Visage
"Coal is here Michaela Fan you know her from chewing gum. Yeah someone told me you bell and I found it was found with net flix. Flex your overwhelmed so much so much gotTa show on you get overwhelmed by it so what this is something for you to know to okay what I get drawn in in by when I go rando which happens all the time I get John by the picture. The cover picture cover picture and I'm like that's why night on Hulu on on it was on Hulu going back years but I go by that. It was Michaela's face. Oh for chewing gum and I was like this looks interesting. Then I saw British more interested and and then just the ridiculous episode one of season. One Yeah is ridiculous. Oh yes beyond say. Yeah they're fully tonight. Fell in love with you and then I saw and then her black mirror. She's done to her and I'll let you all talk about it but her Black Mirror with Bryce Dallas Howard is probably my all time favorite from the one that won the San Mateo Mesa. Yours was really mind nine. I was in it. Yeah but you really enjoyed when you guys spoke about me on the podcast. That's when I first chemicals you guys because because the whole world was a revolt dive deep. I didn't get out I haven't left. Yeah well. Michelle is an anglophile. What do they call American files? What is that call? God do you listen. American I I was. She loves everything British. They're called anglophiles. Realize everything Australian Season Ozzie Ozzie file. What is un-american that Saudi or friends a francophile yeah and there are lots of files out there? But I don't think that we don't like a lot of the files so we became aware of you from chewing gum and I was just reading that that had been something thing else before it was the series that we know on on Netflix. That's right it was a play so I was in my finally drama school which of these plays and in here in London in London. That's why and I thought I want to do something. That's a bit mole the world. I knew see anywhere so I right this like ten minute really dark comedy who chewing gum dreams which was like as funny as it was like. Just quiet docket homage. Then I left school drop tower and found this like pop theater on this in Russia wasteland and Hackney Some guy was trying to that makes sense so I said please immature here and I told him for a while and then he left me. Yeah and so now. Does bubble gum dreams allude to coming from very strict background and not being able to chew bubblegum. No chewing gum. Let me let me tell you about tearing countries why this high school As such so I had a problem coaching country. And it was on a really high rise state and I saw like these kind of angels with hoods zone as we often wear an east London their wings. They had a popularity go chains money drugs. Riches Wealth Women Blah Blah Blah and they also had Love Passion vulnerability friendship and there's so much on their wings that something had to give way so they would chuck off the things that society tells us means less which are things like from ability dreams and love and so I would see a And Dreams I don't see them falling off in a cascading of the window and into the floor like chewing gum trump on by night trainers before you hit the in Tacoma. That's dark but it's so profound because you know dreams die. I don't they that was. Why is that it? Maybe because This I think it's it's vulnerable to dream isn't it when and you can't see the end you don't know so if like there's no you can't see the destination Riley right so many tangible yes as yes yawn certain it's It's faith yeah. Yeah it's so interesting because I've been grappling with that a lot recently being here in London and being you know The things is it. People are focusing on politically and just even socially. It seems like we're going backwards. How do we reinvigorate young people with their not not only dreams but hope for our society? What do you think I know? It's kind of a heavy question and you know thought I'd ask you know I don't I don't know talk but what why. Yes yes. I'm like well recently. I was looking a goner Jerry to countries in Africa and just read in Oakland like the history three in terms of these tribal wars between these countries and how we kick them out of our borders every like twenty or thirty years and I was thinking. I didn't realize that this wearing a cycle. It's like we come and we. We haven't been here before we are just living doing were. Everybody did before he could see. No everybody else did that. That's why we're in this ship position vicious. We'll do something different like love. I feel like the children. Why not love? I mean we've tried the conservative ways for so long they just haven't worked and you know it's like the young mice always think they can outsmart the mouse trap. It hasn't happened yet. Nine point something. Different light line from people who came full year. It will change your whole life gets in the way you go get gets in the way and they think they can do it and it just it goes to shit so fast and I think that's where we are right now honestly. It seems like it's a cycle when you know what happened to us in America on Election Day lifetime you know it felt like Oh we hadn't learned from the passer asser we are. We still yet you know so your work is really it has so many layers to it and we talked about the religious part because you grew up in a pentecostal background client. Well I convert my family after actually converted to cost and then conveyed out so now I'm just a whole. Yeah we are sister. The you know what's interesting about that when you grow up with with religion with with really heavy duty religion like pentecostals are really heavy. Duty Speaking in tongues. Only aww faking. It said that was hoped doc that again. Peaking intones is really hot. I wish I could explain. Can do the jokes loads we would do joke versions which was like Hondas Vico mercedes-benz like I really was actually like. I feel like a drama school. Do you ever have these classes. Where you just republic? I feel like it's like daring to to just open your mouth. Your tongue don't know what's going on. It's like an ad Lib can ad Lib and there's no plan for like a normal person. That's a very old fencer. Awesome awesome to James said like south with prayer. When you're really feeling prevalent you you all connecting to something but the Tons yes yeah I. I don't know if that makes any sense but we can make any sense. No no I get it. But what's interesting is that you get caught up in the Holy Spirit's yeah takes. He's over any good. It does feel good of a release saying like I mean talk about a concert and share apple where you go. WHOA Ooh yes even when I write and maybe that is the Holy Spirit? I'm like wow like she's everywhere. That's right absolutely right now. I'm just wondering about the the religious background how it actually POPs up. Because I've known people I call it the Al Green Syndrome you know. An Algorithm was at the height of his career. The woman he was living with boiled votes. He'd come home late because he was clearly out doing something I shouldn't be. She boiled some hot water. And I think she may have put some grits up in there and she said she walked walked up to him and she poured it on top of the boiling grit. coiling grits on top of him and he was severely for but After that he he went very very realistic. Come from a religious background but he stopped singing secular music if this is the height career and he decided her well because I think he felt that. The grits were a wake-up call as they would be for any one he betrayed. Trade has God or something but he and I call this syndrome. A lot of people you call the Gold Syndrome could be called the Grit Syndrome. I call it the Al Green Syndrome but a lot of people revert back you know. People in my family have done this to where they can't see past. I don't know what what happened to me. But they can't see past what they already know that they decided to go backwards describes what happened in our country politically correct. But I'm my point with all of this McColl is how how do you actually. It's a phrase. I know you mean take because I don't know you may go back. You may go back to Shumur La Melinda along you know well look I think so i. You don't think so. Well I like assessing at work shall no return to know why I really like onset. Jason T it's terrifying when you when I left Shia you know I would tell people left and they would let you cry in front of me like McCain you know right but then and then it's like well what what is this. What am I living in? What's going on and then I was? Oh nobody nice. Yeah Oh cool. Perhaps actually right is the sweet spot when you are okay with the not knowing you know. 'cause I pray and I say all I don't have to put a label on what it is. I just have to know that that thing. I'm praying it's actually not me. I'm a part of it. It's not me and that is where where the magic happens with you because you had to wait to decode and to take the plug. Turn take the plug out of the EGO. Yes and what. I think. What really helped help me to that is like silence? Just being myself meditation. I mean I didn't even really realize it was meditate. At first I was just kind of forced into two spaces where I didn't realize the alone. And the there'd be no one in the area and I it was terrifying like I went to write chewing gum. The first season lovely couple very very rich lovely poem. We'll we'll take our keys. We have a house On Lake Tahoe. And so I do. Oh like the Gen. Yeah Yeah. It's a London for me is very generous place. Yeah I mean I do Team and it is just lovely. Yeah and it was America so I imagine imagine all America the Americas taxi be relax since Hollywood can only look on the a street. That's what I thought but it was like tar. I didn't know you know. They kinda wound me about like Christie. Says the way to the airport and I was like what do you mean like Beth. The holiday season it was like a mile long gates community..
"michaela" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders

I was in l a microphone levels were adjusted. Enjoy. Before we dig into all your recent current work. I do want to say we have one big thing in common that excites me. We both shave our heads. How did I have a feeling you were going to say something that's changed in me? And because you know, here you can't see them. I have. How long does it now? It's like maybe an inch or two short. I would still really sure I started growing up Tober. I have another part. I love saving my hair shaving, myself, feel good. It feels great it always like. It is in like one. It's like a chance to appreciate this part of your body that you don't think about enough like when I shaved my head. I touch my head, and I feel it and I'm like, oh, it's nice. Yeah. I'd like kit. Yes, I'm with you. And it also it's like a it cuts out so much time and. I mean, you just get rid of that thing. And then it's like you have another half an hour is something else like read. Be some meditation. Do some yoga and your head Louis. Great because you don't have any. Yes. Yes. Yes. It will end. Like when you talk about it. Well, one I read this profile of you where you had the writer of the article, a black woman shave, my hat shave your hair for you. Yeah. Yeah. Like a level one and she was zero. And and so I was like, please d- mind. And she said, my great, I bring it up because I also like how you talk about how that act. It's also. EU intending your hair off, you kind of freeing yourself from a lot of pressures and expectations that society in your industry put on women, especially black women, like when you shave your hair, you shave off the burden of performing your hair one hundred percent and not just in this industry. It kind of feels like. It's it's bleeds into every part of your life. Have you know, I think my mom permed my head when I was three, and then I had pumped hats, and is about nineteen and it will fade out because it broke, and we should say to the white listeners. This stuff is severe. It's like Benji chemicals. Burn. Just got my mom puts them on me. They seriously. Oh, yeah. And asked where to get it. Just burned in my head running my head pain for years. Yep paint. So that you have had that soaps defying gravity. And I would you know, I remember I put on skirts on my head..
"michaela" Discussed on The goop Podcast
"To gp and michaela so if you like to let it all go in the in the sexual that includes the date and the food and the enjoyment of life you need to be with somebody who likes directed and that's what creates attraction polarity so when two people just want to play and flow it's not very sexy when both people want to lead it leads to mary strong conflict so for the sake of the sexual cajun you can train your body to be able to just lean back and relax or you can train your body to be the one who takes the initiative the issue is that most women spend their whole day training the body to go especially now especially now so we do go go go go go and our body has the musk all the psycho emotional muscle of go oh then we want to flow we have weak muscles we don't know how to do it so feminine tantric practices so to speak all have to do with creating flow in the body while masculine tantric practices all have to do with being able to give good structure and direction and so when you know which one you want to play and you have somebody who wants to play the other one then you can willingly pick up that part that you want to play meaning one takes the flow one takes to go and that makes for really hot sex so does because we're women does it mean that before we choose sort of which role we have to be very connected to that feminine energy like the flow within so does the do energy come from that like if you're the if you're the floor so to speak in most women not all women but most women that i've ever worked with including myself i just wanna lay down of us off and not have to be the one initiating and doing and knowing exactly you i get mindless arrived often but of course when all you do all day is control your environment mindlessness is not the first thing that appears are there things that we can do to guess from doing into yet other energy lots of things and most of them are very very simple okay now one move your body move your body in a non linear way put on a song just one song and move your body not in dance wayne issa sarily but in the way the body wants to move like might look really weird but just allow the body to move and do that brings you back into your feeling body and the woman's feeling body has an incredible genius to it it will come online and stuff starts flowing and also if you have any stuck nece from trauma or a tough day old trauma the movement of the body unravels the frozen this because freeze is a big thing in women at which is so still because that's that's a stress response so when you start moving the body the body comes online and then since asian comes online and wisened sation comes pleasure but also with with that sensation come all the negative stuff just why some people don't like to do it right and how do you process through the negative stuff it comes up you you don't necessarily process you just move it so i call this practice moving what you're feeling it's like the most fundamental practice us peak one song you stand or you can do it on your hands and knees which is also really nice and you just move the body with whatever you're feeling and then you'll feel physical things and then emotions come up and you just continue moving the key is to never stop moving and then the stuff just washes out and then what is left after that you know you can always address the therapist or write down or speak about it but i you allow the body to process it and that's dumb on a daily basis is like fluffing it's like emotional emotional sexual hygiene and yesterday in the middle of teaching workshop but women said well why would i do self pleasure i don't feel like it and i mean i only like it when there's a man involved.
