Perseverance Rover, Ingenuity Helicopter, and the Search for Ancient Life on Mars
"On April 6th in this desolate Martian crater 170 million miles from Earth. Perseverance posed for a selfie with ingenuity. The little helicopter it had just dropped off. Two weeks later. The rovers cameras recorded ingenuity is historic First flight hovering 10 ft. Off the ground for 30 seconds. It may not look like much, but for those who work so long to make it happen. It was a reason to rejoice. Project manager Mimi on led the team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California that's been working on ingenuity for six years. How hard is it to fly a helicopter in Mars? Very, very, very hard. We really truly started with the question of is it possible? A lot of people thought it could not be done because it's really counterintuitive. I mean, you need atmosphere for the place to push atmosphere to get lived. The atmosphere on Morris is completely different than the world atmosphere at Mars is so thin. I mean the room we're in, right. It's compared to that It was 1% of the atmospheric density over there, so The question of really Can you generate enough lift, you know, to really build to lift up anything. That was a fundamental question. In subsequent flights. Ingenuity has gone higher and farther, traveling more than a mile in all over the surface of Mars. It is a triumph not only for NASA, but for its partners in the private sector, who helped make various parts of the helicopter. Don't Let it go. Don't freak out. Matt Keenan has a history of making unusual things that can fly as an engineer at a company called AeroVironment, which produces drones for military and civilian use. I mean, that's incredible 10 years ago for a military research project, Keenan and his team created this robotic hummingbird, which has a tiny camera on board. Whoa! Oh, there it is. Oh, my God. That's amazing. Keenan, an engineer, Ben Pipe Enberg led the AeroVironment team that created ingenuity is rotors motors and landing gear. Why was this so challenging because it has to be a spacecraft as well as an aircraft. And and flying it as as an aircraft on Mars is pretty challenging because of the density of the air That's similar to about 100,000

If i had a nickel for every time somebody said lynn. Sobriety is so boring. Yeah would probably fill him very large jar. I wanna talk about it. In terms of shifting your mindset around what boredom means most of us think about boredom in this way. I'm bored. I have nothing to do. Life is so unfunny life is dull. I must speed pressed. Oh i'm so tired. i'm so bored. However you might be surprised that in psychology it means something out more to me occur when you feel energetic but have nowhere to direct that energy it may also occur when you have difficulty focusing on a task. Boredom is a common complaint among children and adolescents and those of us who have submitted to a lot of intake of a drug. We may complain of boredom because we're comfortable dealing with her own thoughts and feelings. Yeah you know. I was going to go there.

New Record Highs as Powell Reassures the Market
"Does the market finally. Believe jay powell. Now if you watch us yesterday we asked why no one seems to believe the fed chief when he says rate hikes aren't coming anytime soon but today he couldn't have been clearer powell saying the fed isn't even thinking about thinking about hiking rates until twenty twenty four at the earliest and when they do finally move the market will have ample warning his comments. Reigniting the record rally with the dow. Snp closing at all time high. So does this mean really say it all all right just to reiterate. This is obviously the deepfake. Does it meaning ring. True guy a love. The mimi's shifts are my favorite. And i i guess the answer going back to last night it depends on what market you're talking about. The stock market absolutely believes him. And you know i. I'm somewhat hesitant to say it. But that's something you know. Tim and karen and steven been saying for a long time. Don't fight these guys in the stock market continues on. Its merry way the flip side of that coin. Is you know. Ten year yields are an indication. The bond market doesn't believe him because here we are at north of one point six percent and the ten year so one market does. The other market doesn't right now the. Us equity market is winning and for the purposes of that. Show our show tonight. That's probably good enough at the same time when race. Get high enough tim. We've seen it in the past when they touch six six seven which they did this morning when they go towards one seven The markets have a little bit of a tantrum so even though the bond market may not believe jay powell eventually the stock market's take the lead to the bond market. So the two are back intertwined. So what what do you think the answer at this. Point is jay powell making abundantly clear and clear to the markets market participants. That there is no intention on raising rates until not even forecasted economic metrics come true but they actually have to see it in the present very backward looking very subjective. We've been. Rick rolled twice this week on fast money. So there's a lot going on. And i think you have a case here where also the concept of the the absolute level of of bond yields on the ten year. What point are are equities in trouble. And i think that's maybe a bigger debate on some level because we just don't know i think the conversation that The fed may have lost control of the long end of the curve. Is the right one to have I think from from fed funds obviously out to five or six years. It's pretty clear that Today's action tells you that the fed is able to job. Here's something else about today. People aren't really talking about. They're out there saying they're going to continue to buy at least eighty billion treasuries and forty billion mortgage backs. At least so again the size of the bond tapering Is something that's also really tough to understand especially when the fed really upgraded the economy Tells you that four and a half percent unemployment rate by the end of twenty twenty one From not terribly far off the record lows that we you know of all time that we went into the pandemic with his still not good. Enough so let. The fed was very clear today. I'm most troubled by vicks. That's got a one thousand nine handle honestly fell eight percent and the volatility. This low tells me equities actually should be a little bit weary in the next couple of days. We're pre pandemic levels when it comes to the vix karen on what did you make it today and does it. Change your view on the markets. Well i'm always long. But i just have this image of of j. palace saying you know what i've taken the bull market hostage. I'm not gonna hurt the bull market in the bond market yelling electable market. Go and then. Powell says if anybody makes a sudden move the market dies and i think that's sort of a standoff that he's trying to reach with the bond market right we saw briefly would happen last month in a lot of weird things the mark you got a lot of sudden movements and the stock market really didn't like that at all but you know tiven guy said he couldn't have been more clear about how dovish he is now. I don't know if the data will force him to do something earlier he did. Say we're not gonna do it until the data makes us do it but if we start to see data change well then we'll have to think all right. He could be made to do it sooner. i don't really know i don't. It wasn't so shocking to me that the general rhetoric. I don't think it was so shocking to anyone but good for banks good for. I guess it was no giants surprise. More dovish than i thought but certainly we all thought that he was dovish going in. I had actually. I want to hear what he has to say about the supplemental leverage ratio. that's important for banks but he punted on that and rice and a couple of days. What he has to say about that is he. Did you say yeah twice. They've made it very clear he wasn't gonna say anything they're gonna say something in a couple of weeks and he's not gonna say anything about it anytime

Nf nafta is just this digital token that conveys ownership. so you can think of f. as digital collectibles the idea is that you have this asset online and there is only one owner of it and because of that that gives it some level of scarcity it gives it some value where it gets more technical is the fact that that authenticity is guaranteed through information conveyed on blockchain which is the same technology that underlies bitcoin. It's just saying here. Is these specific. Asset here's data. it was created. Here is the name of the work of art in this case.

Comfort Food, From Mississippi To San Francisco
"As we learned last time growing up in different regions of the. Us can make you long for the specific adaptations and versions of the dishes. That your family or your community made in the case of our next story. It can also mean. You develop a love for more conveniently packaged version of those cultural foods. I don't think i would ever get tired of talking about. That's amy will. Bobo harvey one. I'm in innuendo abo-. I am a creative technologist and i'm indonesia american and i am number one in domi fan. I live in san francisco right now. Which is really different than where i grew up which was the live nowhere mississippi in little town along the river with a population of about twenty thousand and i lived there from when i was nine years olds to when i went to college. Moving there at such a young age wasn't an easy adjustment for amy. I remember moving to the south as a nine year old and it was pretty different from where i was moving from colorado and meeting of being like this grumpy nine year old like having to have left all of my elementary school friends like move to a new environment in the middle of the school year but then having southern food for the first time and being like okay. Yeah i guess we can live here. They have fried catfish and biscuits and gravy. So it warms. My heart towards the south to indonesian foods too as far as eating indonesian foods. I grew up eating like soto. I am a soup that my mom would make me whenever i was sick or buckman agoo which is fried corners. There are a lot of overlaps. I think between southern food indonesian food like they use of peanut oil alive similar veggies. Green beans corn okra. And i think because of the amount of fried stuff just like it tasting so like hardy and comforting put of all those foods. Amy had into me was a highlight. I asked her to tell me about indo. Mian why she loved it so much. How can i describe perfection I'll i'll try so injury is an instant noodle packet. That's meant to be eaten dry. Unlike a lot of other suit based instant noodles and then the taste is post to kind of emulate. Megan rang which is like the indonesian fried noodle dish. And there's just like something so special about the taste like it's so many different flavors so when you're making indo me you drain the noodles and then it comes with like Three or four different spice packets. There's a packet of oil. That's supposed to emulate like the oil that you would fry but noodles. There's also a spice packet of chili powder than there is the packet of boo boo. Which is like the indonesian word for. Spice the bulk of the flavoring of indo me is in the boo packet and then catch up my niece which is in an asian sweet so i saw us at the very end. There's like a little packet of fried onion bids that you can put on the very top so before we moved to mississippi we had an asian grocery store that did sell into me. And so i grew up thinking of that as the only instant noodle like i didn't know that other types of instant noodles existed and i really liked them but i thought of them as kind of like normal that fault and then moving to mississippi where into music available. We had top roman for the first time. But we made it like indo. Mimi gaurang life where he made it dry and then just like all the spice packets dry top of the noodles. We were like what is this. This is so strange. We've never had this kind of instant noodle before like all the flavors are often because like to eat talk on but yeah it made me realize like wait into me isn't the default instant noodle it's like special in hard to get which made me treasurer at even
Tesla Buys Bitcoin While Elon Sends Dogecoin To The Moon!
"I guess in our post game. Stop wall street bets world. I guess. I should never be surprised to wake up to crazy news like the news. That tesla has bought one and a half billion dollars worth of bitcoin and says it will start accepting bitcoin as a payment for its products in the future quoting cnbc in a filing with the securities and exchange commission. The company said it bought the bitcoin for quote more flexibility to further diversify maximize returns on our cash and quote. Tessa also said it will start accepting payments in bitcoin in exchange for its products quote subject to applicable laws and initially on a limited basis and quote that would make testily first major automaker to accept crypto currency as payment the one and a half billion dollars worth of bitcoin will give tests liquidity in the cryptocurrency once it starts accepting it for payments tesla's move into bitcoin represents an investment of a significant percentage of its cash in the investment the company had more than nineteen billion dollars in cash and cash equivalents on hand at the end of twenty twenty according to its most recent filing but the moves also raised questions around. Ceo elon. Musk behavior on twitter in recent weeks where he has been credited for increasingly prices of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and does coin by posting positive messages that have encouraged more people to buy the digital currencies two weeks ago. The billionaire tesla owner added the hashtag hashtag bitcoin to his twitter bio move that helped to briefly. Push up the price of the cryptocurrency by as much as twenty percent. Two days later he said on the social media chat site clubhouse quote. I do at this point. Bitcoin is a good thing. And i am a supporter of bitcoin and quote. Bitcoin prices surged to new highs. Monday following tesla's announcement reaching a price of at least forty four thousand two hundred dollars. Tesla shares were up more than two percent monday morning. Tessa warn investors of the volatility of bitcoin price. In its sec filing and quote. Yeah and about that does coin stuff in case. You're not aware of does it was sort of a joke. Crypto currency that would be one way to put it. but also maybe it's better to think of does coin as the ultimate mean currency especially in this age of non fungible tokens and art now and collectibles on the blockchain. So this is what i mean by. Nothing surprising me anymore. In the post game stop world does coin is maybe the alternate mimi. Play in a way elon. Musk is a meam engine. In and of himself so his tweets pushing does coin up from half a cent at the beginning of the year to around eight cents this morning even though does is sort of not an active project or even a viable one at this point. Yeah to the moon for sure
How to Save Your Marriage
"Going to promise you one thing and that is that we could save your marriage so many times on the show. We've talked about marriage problems and often the solution for serious problems is marriage. Therapy easy to say you'll go but many times the one spouse will not go so what we're going to do is try and make it easy for you as a gift. We're going to give you two free days of marriage therapy. You won't have the expense and you won't have to leave the house. Starting today you will get a chance to look inside a marriage therapy weekend and here is what you'll see. We took eight couples who all admitted their marriages were on the brink of disaster. They spent the weekend with dr horrible hendrix. Who conducts these marriage workshops across the country and in the course of the weekend amazing results happened. Marriages were saved. And today you can begin to say yours. Tim and vicky webster have been married now. For two and a half years they are separated and vicky is expecting their third child. My next couple. Layton and debbie. Clark have three children and i've been married for six years. Derek and valencia. Stevens have been married for five and a half years. George and beth pasta have been married fifteen years and they have two children. Randy and pam mal have been married over twelve years and they have two children. Joe and karen stricklin have been married now for two years and they have three children from a previous marriage. Jim and laurie tolliver have been married nine months. The last of the eight couples has the biggest obstacle to overcome. James and mimi had been married six years. Mimi has filed for divorce. They came to the seminar truly to save the marriage. James and mimi lacey also joining us the mastermind behind this particular kind of marriage therapy and the author of this book which the therapy is based on called getting the love. You want getting the love you want. It is a guide for couples. Please welcome our marriage man. Harvard this. I have been watching some of the tape from the seminar and it is it has helped me and my relationship tremendously really has really just in learning how to fight fairly and so forth. Why is this different. It's different because there's a focus on an understanding that couples issues arise out of their childhood. And that when they present themselves in the relationship we have to understand that they come from someplace other than just the marriage so the workshop helps couples understand that provides them with some tools experiences information to help them resolve those childhood issues in their relationship. So we take the position that divorce is not the solution to a marriage that Working on marriage and resolving the childhood issue is the solution. So when you're married to someone you have to look at them for everything that they brought to the marriage before they got there exactly. Yeah childhood most important. You have to look at the childhood issues that were brought knowing that most of the conflict couples experience in their relationship comes from unresolved pains and hurts in childhood that are presenting themselves in adult form in the relationship. And if you know that then you know you're relating to a person when they're angry at you or upset or acting sort of crazy and you don't understand what's going on that relating to a person who's wounded and hurt and are dealing with that wound and hurt with the only skills and tools that they now have and that what you have to do in a relationship is to acquire new skills to deal with the old issues they have to be dealt with and so. The exercise that we're going to see now is called container. Exercise called a container exercise and this exercise comes actually at the end of two days of very intensive work. So it's about probably sixteen hours into the workshop before you get to this before you can get to this part because it takes a while to get to these kinds of feelings and the container is an exercise designed to help a couple deal with. What is what. I call a residual childhood rage. The hurts and pains the feelings. That are leftover that are created when when his little and get hurt and so. That rage shows up in marriages as Anger rage hurt and so forth in this container helps you deal with that because it has to be dealt with and resolve it so that you feel closer and more intimate afterwards. It creates compassionate intimacy rather than the distance that comes with most fights nats call container. Why because one person has to just listen. One person has to justice and one is a container that is they receive and listen and the other person is asked to go into their childhood hurt. It starts with something that happened in the relationship but then there to push their anger into the childhood memory and then into that pain. So there'd be a lot of expressions of intense anger and then tears usually come and then after that some talking and then when couples are doing this and they're real life you know in their home or in the workshop they alternate one listens as a carrying holding nurturing parrot and the other one goes in becomes regress like a little child back into that paint.

Twitch Bans Words
"So twitch made an announcement today that they are now officially banning words and the words you would think not the gamer words they are now banning simp- in-cell and virgin you can now be banned on twitch for using simp- in cell in virgin which make sure you follow us on twitter and youtuber library now. Yup so first off. This one hurts for me personally just last night. My wife was telling me. I need to start calling people. Virgin is my go-to insult anyone. It just rolls off the tongue. It has a punch to it like you virgin like that v. You just a hit them in the mouth with it it's awesome. It's an awesome insult and it's it also makes a funny as like it's not even an insult like who cares if you're version but it's it's funny it is funny simp- off this you know why. Which banning these words. Because every single one a twitch is a simp- and in-cell and a fucking virgin that's why they're banning these words they're taking it out on their own side this stupid. These are not the words we need to be talking about. If you go into banned words i could give you a list of other words that need to make sure they never come out of somebody's mouth on the platform like all of us Biz become a become a frigging common like me more to us right. You use it in so many different situations and so all a pokey maine's admin's got offended. That people kept calling him simpson. They said you know what is going to are just going to ban the word. It's it's i don't understand what direction it's going in kick for me to like. This is a like. There's other things i feel like twitch needs to be worrying about and this is like they find these one off to go after. Let me say this. And i could say this we even though we stream on both youtube and twitch twitch has done nothing to get us our sub button working there is no even route. We can go to for help to get it working. So i'm going to say this. I wish people didn't just immediately go to switch the way they do. Because at this point that the trains not stopping. I don't think twitches is going to go away anytime soon. For what they do right like they've they've made so many mistakes down the road and everyone's just like hung like this is the dumbest thing you could possibly do and yet they're still dominating every other streaming service right. You have streamers on youtube that are still doing successful but not like twitch right as a whole but my god in their board meeting. And i just feel bad for the people who probably work for twitch but also realize from the outside looking in like imagine you go into your meeting a new jr and your boss is like all right boys. We're gonna talk some heavy shit today and uh needs to change the company's direction and you're thinking all right all right. We're going to get all those scam accounts. All those scam accounts taking money from kids. Nope no not that like the softcore porn the titty streamers. We're going to work on them going to try to filter them out. No no no. The animal appears no the people who say the n. Word nope we're gonna get rid of the people who say simpson virgin and you're like. Oh but you know in the twitch meeting they were all like this is the best idea ever need to roll this out immediately reveling. Let's how much they actually enforce this like. They're saying that it. You're talking about a person's sexual orientation i say it's just people using. I don't really think that when somebody says that they're trying to target their sexual they're just making fun of unfortunately that's become the online like that's just the way it kind of works online like people make fun of one another. Become like a mean you know. Who can mimi harder. Type thing like i get it that time. It can go too far at times. I also get that. But that's why. I think we need to keep it in rain. Let me use. let me call someone a virgin. If you take virgin away. I have to be creative now. Like to think outside the box outside the walker do those the meaning is gone. Like one hundred times further. Might hurt them more exactly name. He used a band word on me. Like now i just like virgin was a catchall. Like hey you're a virgin means you're a loser and eighty it all of the above now. I have to like explain myself.

Because of course that's what you want in your whole server encryption is speed so anyway It's faster now. And in an odd twist the d'appel payment gang apparently advised delaware county to change all their passwords and also modify their windows domain configuration to include safeguards from the use of the mimi cats program. Now it's not clear what those safeguards would be. Maybe like explicitly look for mimi. Cats me cats. We've talked about it from time to time. It's an open source tool. That's been around for about six years since two thousand fourteen. It's commonly used by ransomware gangs to harvest windows domain credentials when they get into a compromise network. So it's one of those. You know lateral movement tools It doesn't qualify as living off the land because it's typically not present on systems that ransomware needs to to download a copy in order to use it but it is on get hub and its author. Six years ago explained that he wrote it as a way to learn see and experiment with locating and extracting windows credentials from the ram of running systems. So yeah it's very much like that. Active directory tool. We were talking about a few weeks ago. It wasn't ever really written to be used for malicious purposes. But boy is it handy for for those you know it extracts things it finds them and extracts amount of ram and d'appel paper is envy. This gang are using me. Cats

I'm just trying to make sense of everything but I'm like, okay, I feel really good because I'm on these drugs, right? Feel really good. You know I think I'll take a nap this little warm room I have my cozy blankets. And I'm in this room and I came here I kissed see but I can hear these nurses yelling at this woman named. Helen. and. They are just screaming at her Helen Hell don't do that. Hell don't pull that out of your arm. No Hell. You can't do that. Allan sit down Helen heroin it would. Just, like they've said her name so many times and I was like. God. I'M GONNA, Kill Helen. And I turned to my nurse I somehow find her you know with my eyes in some point and I said Hey. What the Hell is going on with Helen. And she she starts laughing and I'm like, okay like that's not the answer I was looking for. And it continues on for a few more minutes friendly. I have had enough because I'm just trying to sleep with my drugs and I like crane my net.

And I kid you not to this day I don't know if that was a real person, I don't know. Helen was real I don't know what the heck. Is there anything else that you'd like to share? You know just the value of friendship and family. This stuff can really change when it comes to trauma and grief I've lost a lot of friends over the years. I've gained a lot of friends over the years people that I consider like my chosen family. Based on our trauma are shared, Traumat- you know and so You're never alone when it comes to this whether it's a health issue or. Losing someone that you love like you're never alone. There is always massive amounts of people out there that have undergone the same thing as you and they wanNA talk to you. They want to talk about how hard it is they wanNA talk about how nobody understands X Y Z and but they do right and very, very good place to start when you're in grief is just to see who else is out there and I'm I'm a complete open book I love getting messages from people who are like hey i. Just had this stroke and I'm struggling with this and I'm like, okay, let's talk about that. You know I love meeting New People like that and sharing what I have, which is my experience in how I got through it when if that can help anybody else I'm like, wow, that's great. So just find your tribe, find your community or they will probably find you but. Community is great and family great and. That's the best part is that we can all kind of.

Advice would you give to someone who is going through something similar to what you've been through you know I have connected to a lot of people that have been through similar things. These past few years it's beautiful community people are incredible. If you don't know where we're at, we're all on instagram come and find us it's a big party and we're all being very vulnerable and honest about what our lives look like post injury. Take a look at that. Take a look at what you've done. Take a look at how far you've come. Give yourself grace I mean I say this all the time but it's like so important because. You are the only person standing in your way, and if you can just take the pressure off and say, Hey. Things. COULD BE XYZ. That could be so much worse. Find Your tribe, find your community people like us. We all understand recovery is. A long process and you always have room to grow. You have room to I mean Gosh I've seen people move their their limbs that they haven't moved in ten years. There's so many things that are possible with your brain that never give up on yourself and most importantly just give yourself a break because damn you've been through like. A Lot. and. Then on the flip side, what advice would you give to someone who wanted to support someone who is going through the things that you've been through? You know that's really a great question I think that caregivers need to find other caregivers. And connect with them. And there's also a whole community around that because every person who's ever had a brain injury has a mom or a dad or a white for husband or whoever that is trying to understand how to help them. and it's not easy. They also need to give themselves a break and give themselves grace because there are things that they will not be able to understand about their loved one and that's okay. No one that's ever had injury that I know is a kit believe you don't understand it's like, no, we just we know that you're not gonNA understand what it's like to be inside of our head and we have to come to terms with that but we have to communicate that to you so that you don't feel bad about it or frustrated a really good example. From my own recovery was I was maybe like six months out after my brain surgery I was back in the classroom I was teaching I was overwhelmed. I was stimuli just completely overloaded and I would come home and I would snap at people because I was like we need to turn the TV off. It's too loud like I can't eat dinner with you talk to you and hear background noise and we had to have a whole discussion about that. But once we did it was like, Oh, this isn't me just trying to be nasty it's just me communicating to you. This is what I need now and they were receptive to that. So communicate those people find your on support networks of other people who are trying to support those people going through that, and is there anything that you feel like no one talks about in regards to healing from trauma? I would definitely say that like young people are very scared of. Death. And so what I'd get onstage and I'm like, Hey, I almost died but let's laugh about it like that is pretty hard because young people want to be invincible we don't WanNa. Think about dying young that's very hard to hear but while we're not talking about is like this is really life changing and it can be really positive to actually have frank open conversations about like okay. What does this look like it have you ever thought about your own mortality and if you did What are the weird conversations you have to yourself for me I'm like, okay well, crap I'm going to die. So my parents are GONNA have to clean out all my shouldn't basement. I hope I, don't find my Xyz. So it's just and that's funny, that's just honest and funny and everyone can kind of think about their lives that way I mean, it's tough. It's not easy to do but I wish that more people were having these open conversations about trauma that we can all go. It is okay. It's going to be okay and if that ever does happen to me or or someone I love because it will you know here's how I can't respond to it because you do have a choice you always have a choice in how you heal how you react to things, and so you know it's an option to use comedy order to. Flip things something else. You're that much more likely to get through your healing a lot better because you have a different. I completely. Agree. So on that note Mimi, you have any funny stories for us. I know that you do. I really love the story. This is in my book and I still think about this all the time. So when you come out of any major surgery, they they give you anesthesia right and you're coming out of it. Right? You're waking up from the surgery they put you in a special room with other people who are also coming off of major drugs which I think is just like hilarious has a special room for that. You like here's the drugged up people coming out of surgery. Great. Let's put them all the same place. So I've just woken up from brain surgery and I literally asked the nurse I said. Did I. Di Di di. and. She said no like you're live and I said did you die? And she's like, no, we're all live like, okay and they're giving me these little ice chips in their role me down to the special place special. Room. And mind you I cannot see. I am seeing double in sideways. So if you like cross your eyes until your head like that. What I was seeing right out. Oh God I just did that to..

Welcome to death is hilarious. As many of you know this used to be the dirty bits podcast show I produced with my late husband George. When he passed away in two thousand nineteen, I immediately started using dark comedy to cope with the loss of my soul mate. I. Also started exchanging letters with my dear friend Sam about how we're both coping with grief loss and trauma using humor. We now read those letters to each other here on the show in addition to interviewing other content creators on how they cope with dark comedy. We hope that you too can find some relief from grief today with a few laughs. I'm your host tiny planets and I'm joined here today with my guest Mimi Hayes. Mimi Hayes is the author of I'll be okay.

Fun Club I really miss that like live audience and being able to just dump my trauma on other humans. Make laugh about it because their life isn't nearly as bad as mine is. There is this part during the bit where you stop to consult your notebook while you're explaining to the audience. I. Have a brain injury I don't remember my notes. Yes. That's like extremely rail for me. I used to relieve meticulously practice. So I wouldn't forget and I just stopped doing that for some reason. I'm just GonNa roll into this, and if someone gives me crap about it, I'm literally just going to say I have a brain injury was going to play the card because I don't know what it wrote down. It's gone from my brain. I that's what really struck. Me was that part I remember thinking Oh, like she really really gets set because I started to do that same thing you sometimes I feel like hit this moment in your life where you're like I just need to tell people what's up with me and what's going on I can't hide this I. Do the same thing when I forget things or I just can't fake being chipper out in. The world, I'm like, you know what? I have widow brain my husband just died I can't right now. Yes and it's just you know it's kind of more fun that way because you stop worrying about what people think about you and you know it's for me it's fun to see people's reactions other faces when I'm like, Oh, I'm sorry my brain is literally not working I don't remember your name I probably never will so. You know things like that I think it's more fun to just roll with it. Can you actually set the scene for us about your brain injury? You were on a really shitty date and I that date was so Shitty, it gave you a brain hemorrhage, the my understanding that correctly. Yeah Yeah So it was two thousand fourteen and I was just starting my life as a high school teacher. I was student teaching Denver Colorado I was also like newly single after a really long relationship. So I was tinder benching to my heart's content and I was on a date and I was just like you know I'm not feel. Like I have a super bad headache I didn't know that it was a brain hemorrhage at the time and neither did the dude on the date but I like to play with that onstage because it's like it's really dramatic. So on this day and I'm like Oh you gotta go back in Lesson Plan and get my life together and it just went downhill really fast after that. I developed a lot of really scary symptoms. I was clumsy I was seeing double I was just completely out of it and had it not been for my mother who was like, Hey, something's wrong with you because I was also living with her at the time. She started taking me to different appointments and saying, okay, we got to figure this out what's going on I was dismissed several times by. Different Doctors Oh, you're young. You're just depressed. You're just a millennial like you know. Nothing's really wrong with you, and until we landed in the Er because I couldn't even move my head without puking they finally were like, let's do an MRI because my mother was like we're not leaving until you do. So if you WANNA, get sued, that's fine. That's your own business and we didn't even have an attorney by the way she's just making all this shit up 'cause she's bad, ass. But they do the MRI they say, Hey, you've had a brain hemorrhage and the lady just walked out of the room. Just. Made a swift exit and I was like Oh shit I, WanNa, die like this very second I. Don't know what that means. How could my brain bleed like? How long can you live with Nino bleeding brain? Eventually, after a panic attack and imam consoling me, they finally came back. I'm like, okay. Well, you're stable. They sent me home a bit after that. They said, Hey, you know here's the deal. It's it's safer. Now it's just it's your little clump of cells has exploded in your head and don't really know why that's all. That's all you know. We don't know what is going on, but you should just take a chill pill for a minute and we'll see if it actually goes away. This chill because sometimes it really does go away. But for me, it actually didn't got much worse though I spent the next month at home binging Ness licks not showering being a complete sad sack. And All the while I was like this is hilarious like I can't move half my body anymore and I I'm seeing double fulltime and my speech is getting slurred and my friends are like freaking out I'm going to have a payday with this. I'm GONNA have a ball. So my friend told me to write a book and I was like, okay, I didn't know how to write a book. I. Also couldn't use my left hand. So I was like Shit this GonNa take me a long time. But I kind of liked just dumping my thoughts about this really weird thing I didn't understand about my body. How funny I thought it was that I was like tripping off. And I wasn't even drunk. You know like I was just having a field day with this and I was the only one doing that everyone else is like, oh Shit Lake you're really sick man. Yep. So.

Only take the stuff that I. Love. Really love with me. And I'm just laughing at the process I. Don't know if any of you have tried to do this. You know you set up these boxes in your house and you're like throw away giveaway and keep and do any of you take things out of one box and put it in another repeatedly this is what I'm finding myself doing an eventually. It goes in one of the giveaway or throw away boxes but God. That's hard. It's a struggle as always trying to keep it light and bright before I dive into some Super Neuro nerdy stuff and wanted to share with you in a slightly different format. What I use in my perspective with my clients and a huge part of that perspective is neurobiology. In addiction and recovery but also something called life span development psychology L. DP how's that life span developmental psychology and how it affects addiction and recovery so are you ready cause here we go i. Let me define what L. D. P. is life span developmental psychology it is the scientific study of growth and Change Yeah throughout our human development it examines thoughts feelings behaviors in how they change during a person's life and how this change over the span of our life encompasses takes in biology social emotional and cognitive processes process the eased. Although there are typical pathways of development that most individuals follow no two people are exactly alike in the way that they change immature time. This is why cut and paste kind of treatment. Doesn't work for the most part. As an aside I don't know if any of you are watching the documentary on what is it on? Hbo I think called the vow and it's about this group called nexium that was delivering what they called quote Unquote Tech around personal development and what their tech was was trying to outline a step by step process at how to get what you. You're supposed to get personal development in insight into your own behavior and your inner life. When you work with a counselor, they were trying to do it sequentially and Nice little package and boy Oh, boy does this happen a lot that's reproducible that can be given to anybody. So you go through these courses and that the end you've gotten some remarkable insight into yourself. However. The problem with that is that you are all individuals over time your. Stuff. That comes into your system is going to be different at and happen at different times than your siblings even. So when people attempt to apply like programming if you will to the human psyche. It must be individualized and that comes only through discussion individual discussion over time with an individual. When I'm working with a client, I am going to look to help them you explain your life to make sense of your past in the present by looking at your environment and things that have precipitated or prevented growth and changes across your lifespan. Looking at things that optimize development in order to optimize or clarify or give you good outcomes what must be done is to apply appropriate theories to help you develop missing skills and navigate these situations that you navigated all by yourself way back when with no modeling healthy modeling and no real intervention terrible word. But that's the word we use intervention by somebody who knew what they were doing in, for instance, the realm of communication or the realm of dealing with. Emotions all that kind of stuff. So if you pull back and look at the stages of human development, there are predictable stages, but any number of circumstances can interrupt that normal development at any stage or age, and then lead to arrange of problems which might include substance use ongoing addiction issues or a multitude of other mental health illnesses. Let's briefly go through those stages. The first one is prenatal development development in the womb has an important impact on early psychological

She's like a self made woman who In the end turns out to be like this. I don't determined like two so pretty much. Like what she does is she. She sells luxury dog items. Like dog clothing but you find out later towards the end of the book that she's been recycling fabric at Mike. She's been going to thrift stores and and just like Making these bags and close out of old material and she's charging her customers like a very very high at a very very high cost because she's like they're rich and also they deserve to pay extra money for garbage that they tossed out and I think that is like a very relatable energy age like a yet eat rich often hooks up. Ahlerich go to me but still I kind of taking advantage of like the vanity of rich people to enrich yourself by selling them their own garbage back which I thought was super bad ass. I am Peru jazz very cold exterior at first. It looks like she's just using her puppy ash as a way to you know get in on these yoga parties so she can sell her bags. But there's little hints here and there that she actually does care for the dog Like she built an entire like harnessed to support the dogs. Like a doggy leg. Right and I don't know if you read this but I kinda got the sense inside her like tough businesswoman exterior. She's kind of a softie. Oh Yeah I think so too. I really like the barn. That she makes with Mimi It's kind of like Yo. These rich white ladies like like they expect people to wipe their asses like like they expect to still like make their smoothies and do all these things for them and they think that they're superior so like why not scam them. And like I like how they're both like recommending each other's businesses and China Lake Lake China. Like Co like co opt on on like capitalizing on these rich white ladies and it's definitely just like Scheme that I can really get behind. And Yeah and just like their one on one. Conversations are always really fun to aid because there's such there's such like a bitterness to it that I like it just like love. That's the thing right. There are both women who like are working in their passions. Right like Mimi loves animals in Europe loves fashion right. You can tell that they really like what they do but they have to sell to these kind of terrible white ladies To make a living right like they're both essentially in the same boat so it was really cool to see them kind of form that bond. It's kind of. It's kind of like the story of of immigrants here like with with Chinese restaurants like the food that they sell Chinese restaurants. Here you know. They're not really the type of food that Chinese people in China e stat till I customize it for white people pallets. So it's like the same thing is like like I need to customize my dog grooming business to have all of these like weird extraneous things like dog pedicures. I I mean like dog. Nail Polish like two dollar to dollar apiece. Doggie treats and stuff like that. So Yeah Yeah it was fun at first when me was suspecting Indian of maybe being the killer because like we mentioned. Mimi is a terrible detective and it was really fun and a little frustrating to see her like kind of treat everyone as a suspect and jump from people pregnant. This guy might be the killer or they might be the killer or they're definitely and we will find out more about them and just like get herself in situations where she just chasing the every single lead. Because there's no like there's no plan yeah there are. There are a lot of like there are a lot of red and a lot of like there is definitely more suspects than I expected there to be and also just like her. There's there's this moment where she calls detective Brown to tell them what clues she found and her being like. I'm innocent life because I found this and Detective round is like. Oh you did like the number one thing that most criminals do which is trying to help law enforcement and insists that they're innocent by providing by providing quote unquote fake evidence. And I'm just like why. Why would you go to the person who suspects you being? The main suspect suspects you of killing killing this person. Like why would you tell them? All of your all of your information is just like why and and her attorney boyfriend is just like. Don't do this. I'm not hearing this like like. Please just stay quiet. Stay where you are. Don't investigate you. You're just gonNa make things worse. But she's like oh it's okay. I'm like in the neighborhood. I can check things out and it's like no no Mimi Please stop a one thing that I found surprising. A reading. This book was just like how quickly Things moved in the first like two chapters I had not expect the talking cat to talk that quickly. I expected that to happen like after the murder. expected her to get into like get into. Josh like later on in the book rather at being like instant I mean. That is the one of the premises of the book. And it would be more weird. I think if the cat didn't talk right away because as Marcel. He does not like to keep quiet. He likes to speak his mind. And Be Sassy So I was okay with that I mean the other thing with everything moving fast is I think Mimi Lee is just so like impulsive. That like it kind of like echina- hat move fast. Because she's always like chasing down the first comes to mind so it's like I think his scattershot and and fast moving for a reason because she's kind of scattershot fast moving well. I was really surprised that she went to go. Investigate At Russ Nolan's house so quickly. 'cause she 'cause like what happens is that she grooms to Chihuahuas who seem to have the same Lethargy and same leg problems and her being like Oh maybe they're from the same breeder. I'm going to go hunt down this breeder. I just thought that was really. That was a little bit too. Quick to impulsive If there was like one more dog that had the same case then I would be like okay. Yeah she's putting she's putting the pieces together but the fact that it was just two dogs. It just seem kind of like a leap to me. I would have to reread that part to see if I still have that. Same Judge Mizzou's. The cat said to write like the cat hopped one of the puppies. I'm not sure I would have to like reread it again. Yeah what I've found about reading. This book is usually when read mysteries. I try to find out who the killer is like. I try to piece all the clues together before the character does but It was really hard to follow along the clues because Mimi was so scatter brained like you said And I just found myself being more interested in the characters so I wasn't really following along with the clue hunting. Other than the fact that she would be breaking and entering. And I'm like please don't do that. That's like it's not a great idea. You'RE GONNA get caught so I found myself just like following like the relationships more than the APP. Yeah I mean the mystery itself wasn't I mean it. It drove the plot but it wasn't a very compelling mystery like Mimi Lee is the main suspect of a murder case but it seems like detective. Brown wasn't really trying as hard as he should have been mainly because he seemed like there's a scene where she goes to his office with doughnuts and he seems to be mired in paperwork so it seems like he was like he was doing other tasks on top of like doing this case so it never really seemed all that urgent that she Clear her name immediately. 'cause there's like so many things going on we'll also seemed like he like he was playing the cop that wants to closest case quick so he was trying to intimidate her into confessing and when she wasn't doing right away that means he added police work And then yeah. It seemed like he had other police work to do that. Was more pressing than this one case Because I think in general besides meaning the acting very very sketch There wasn't a lot of evidence besides like an eyewitness testimony from very unreliable eyewitness Cheryl Cheryl. What a character. Yeah who is like? You're in a story full of Karen's he might have been the biggest one. Yeah I mean she. She complains about her like she complains about everything. She's like the lab. She's like Oh. My last neighbor tried to borrow sugar way too many times and Russ I. I mean she was rightfully annoyed because he had like all these chihuahuas locked up in one room without taking good care of them and they were barking all night so she was. She was right in her complaint over there but she seems to such. She seemed like such a salty lady Which which was good for the story because she was such a standout character But personally I was like I would not be able to stand this lady for for ten minutes in the same room. I don't know how Mimi is able to like go back to this lady like six seven times woman. The lady was the key to her like being a suspect in the first place. Yeah planting evidence lying lying because she wanted to keep this leg bracelet. Very Selfish Lady. Yeah which gets a happy ending at the end but like this you deserve it are no no no no definitely. She deserves to be locked in her apartment and live as a neat and watch youtube like the rest of her life. Yeah going back to the mystery part of it. I mean the way wrapped up to like the way that it revealed to killer really was It wasn't because many founded out it was more because the killer got impatient like me. We didn't solve this mystery. She didn't like figure out who it was. Yeah she didn't have a hobby moment. You're like she literally finds out that like finds out that Tommy is the killer because Tammy attacks her just like at that point. It's like oh I guess you're the killer you don't have that parlor room scene. From you know the Christie novels detective confronts the killer and unravels their plan. It's just like oh I guess you're the killer because you're trying to kill me now. Yeah it's more like the killer found out what Mimi was doing rather than Niimi finding out like what the killer was up to you. Yeah the killer herself Tammy also a bad killer not a good murderer. How does she kill Russ again? Was it because like was it like with a bat or something like no it was it. Wasn't it with like a syringe? Like she Immobilized him ketamine and then and then like him over the head. Yeah and the reason why she did. It was because he sold her A Chihuahua with genetic defects and she had bought the Chihuahua to save her failing marriage but also like you know how a lot of couples they try to salvage their marriage by having another baby. It was it was. It was kind of like that but with a dog and just like with with the baby plan. It never really works. Don't try to salvage your marriage by adding an extra life in the mix. That's just my personal opinion. I feel like it complicates things way more. Yeah we've talked a lot about Mimi's detecting life and professional life. Let's talk a little about her personal life. Because I think this was a good like there was a lot of time spent on fleshing that out too so should we talk about her family or should we talk about her Her hutler boyfriend. I think we can talk about our family. Yeah yeah so. Mimi is a mixed-race she her. Mom Is Malaysian. And I think I think Chinese by your violation way and her father is white and Mimi mentions a couple of times that people make Asian jokes at her call her like Bruce Lee's daughter or whatever And there's like a scene where she poses as like an Asian immigrant. Mom At tammy school and that scene is just like oh but also she's able to gather so much information because she's kind of seen as invisible which is something that like you know Which is kind of something that that is brought up in killing eve. As while there's the second killer killing Eve Where like Darren immigrant and no one notices? No one notices them because they're like they're like a cleaning lady is on the calendar stand or like aren't don't exist. Yeah Yeah Yeah. They're they're the help so you don't pay. I mean definitely In terms of family you do get to know her mom and her sister the best her dad's just kinda there and I feel like he's he's one of those Sitcom Dad's where they're just there to like look exasperated or disinterested but only add much the story. Yeah I think that's just part of his character because he retired and like most white dads who retire. He's all about that Gulf life. I mean I think that's just like a dad..

Yes so we're GONNA start off with our jacket description So this is a jacket description for Mimi. League gets a clue by Jennifer. Jay Chow. Mimi Lee is in over her head. There's her new Los Angeles pet grooming shop to run her matchmaking mother to thwart her talking cat marshmallow tend to. Oh and the. Oh and the murder of a local breeder to solve now. If only Mimi hadn't landed herself on top of the suspect list me Lee hoped to give Los Angeles animal lovers something to talk about with her pet grooming shop Hollywood's. She never imagined that the first cat she said hello to. We're talk back or be quite so catty especially about those disastrous dates Mimi. Lee's mother keeps setting up when marshmallow exposes local Breeder Russ Nolan for mistreating. Chihuahuas Mimi steal some of her cats attitude to tell. Russ off the next day the police shows up at Hollywood off. Rough has been found dead and Mimi shouting match with him has secured her top billing as the main suspect hoping to clear her name and save the PUPS Left Behind Mimi. Enlists help from Dreamy lawyer Neighbor Josh. But even with Josh on board. It'll take me and marshmallow a lot of sleuthing and more than a little. Sas to get back to the pet grooming life and off the murder scene. Yeah and longtime listeners. Know the drill. This is a book club discussion. We're going to be discussing the whole book including any in all spoilers again. This is a mystery story. So if you don't want to know what happened Go read the Bug. It's actually a breezy read. You can probably finish a pretty quickly. So go read the book. Come back welcome back. How did you read the book? So fast So Mimi gets a clue. We would probably categorize this as a cozy mystery which is a sub genre in the mystery umbrella where the murderer isn't grotesque? It's kind of taken with the more lighthearted humorous tone and usually the murder takes place in a smaller community and it focuses more on Like slice of life stuff mixed in with the murder so it is. It is like a weird Spin on on the usual detective stories. But I like that about About this book. I think that we needed a lighter. Re this month it's definitely one of those Unintentional detective stories. Where you know the main character is doing detecting. But they're not a detective. I would go as far to say that. Mimi Lee is a terrible detective because she doesn't think Oh yeah she's so bad she barges into like her main strength or skill is her Persistence but she keeps finding yourself a places. She really shouldn't be if she's trying to throw suspicion off her as a suspect and if it wasn't for her cat it would've been a I think he would have ended badly for her. Yeah definitely she is. She is not very great at detecting before we get into the murder parts of this book. I just want to mention. This book is set in Los Angeles and Marvin and I are both space in Los Angeles. So a lot of the setting was very familiar to us. The traffic was very familiar to us to be fair. It said in like a different Los Angeles in the one we live in because we live on the east side and Mimi leaves on the West Side. Totally different lifestyle which you kind of see with the characters in this book by all the characters that Mimi interacts with this story actually had a really large cast. I was having a little trouble keeping track of all the characters especially all the white ladies. Yeah especially like the Chihuahua owners. Oh wait which white lady says. I don't remember all terrible. There's a Tammy Lauren. There's a Nikola the only person that really stood out is Indira. Who has the Loan Brown person in this entire like privileged rich people. Would she had a really? She has a really interesting story. We can go into a little later when we talk about characters. I really liked her as a character. I just want to mention so when I posted a winning announced book on our Instagram. I took a picture of the book with my Mug at my Mug says I would take the one. Oh one to the ten to the four. Oh five for you and and while I was reading this book I was drinking from it so I I was definitely in the moon on I. I was on Brad. So yeah the cat in this. Dark marshmallow was definitely a scene. Stealer in my opinion yeah. He's a very a very. I won't even charming because he's not really charming. But Very Sassy right well. This is the Sassy cat mystery series which makes sense the. Sassy cat mystery series. Yeah and he's like the real star because he's able to not only communicate with humans but also with other animals and he's kind of set up as the Watson to Mimi's sherlock but I would say she might actually be the Watson she's definitely the Watson she has no idea what she's doing. I think okay so the thing is. Mimi reminds me a lot of Sandra. Oh's character in killing eve where I'm always constantly yelling at them for making very very bad work decisions. I'm just like why are you going over there? You're like you're like the prime suspect or like why why didn't you? Why didn't you secure location like you're so stupid It's just me being very frustrated at the main character the entire time most likely because I have read so many murder things and watched so many procedural where I'm like how can you. How can you forget gloves? Can you touch that with your dirty fingerprints? Which is something that detective Brown brings up when she when she finds like a crucial clear. I mean she is a bad detective. I think we've we've established that and she doesn't really plan things. She's a character with impulse control and she tends to like do things without a plan. Right like there's a scene where she goes and tries to confront her sisters boss with like no real planner. How okay. But that's not her fault there. It's it's her mom's fault because her mom was her mom was the one who set up an appointment with the principal after the principal gave a alice. Mimi Mimi sister the pink slip. A she's like you're the older sister. You're supposed to take care of a younger sister. Go Talk to her boss and make sure that she is not fired. Which is such a such an older child responsibility in my opinion also just bad decisions on her part for even giving her mom access to her accounts and her identity who the coon does a. Who gives who gives their Asian parents access to their Google calendar. Like who does like her. Mom is definitely just identity feeding her the entire time studying. Let's say that the matchmaking dates were. We're like probably some of my favorite scenes. 'cause it's just it's just so cringe-worthy -I but at the same time because it's not happening to you. It's really fun to watch. So I don't I don't have the experience of having a super micro amenity parents or someone who's like super stressed out about my ability to Mary. Maybe that's because I'm a dude But yeah like her mom's Thir- seen this was very very frustrating as a reader. Because you're like mom like the thing is her. Mom created a dating profile for her daughter with lies filled. It with lies say that she got a doctorate degree. I'm just like Oh my God. If my mom did this to me I would kill her lake. I mean in. I'm saying that as like my mom has tried to set me up with other guys before and even then I just wanted to kill her but if she if she had done the stuff that Mimi's mom did like trying to set Mimi up with a college student and like a delivery boy who delivers food to her pet grooming shop randomly. Her mom has terrible taste in men well because her mom we joke about how Asian parents at some point their standards go down so at first. It's like you must marry a doctor or engineer or someone like with a career then as eventually becomes Mary anybody it doesn't Matter Q. The grandkids Mary anybody. I I think I think Mimi is a little bit too young to be at that stage of Mary. Anybody She's only twenty five years old No no which I found really surprising because Like Mimi is twenty five years old and she started a business of our own like mom right or Santa. Marta yeah in like West. La I'm like how like. How are you going to survive girl? I mean she got like she got funding from a rich white lady. Who existing dog. She say it's a very rich person name. I guess a lot of rich people names in this story. Yeah Yeah I guess so names. I will say that West. La There are definitely a lot of weird speciality pet shops A lot of like Beverly Hills type. They have like they have cute little dogs. They bring everywhere. I've had friends who work in retail business in in West. La and they sometimes complain about a white ladies bringing in their chihuahuas. They're tiny dogs even though the venue even though the shop says no pets allowed. They're very insistent saying that. Oh my dog is like my dog is really well behaved. I don't understand my my dog in my purse like they're not going to hurt anyone and it's like well. They're not a service dog so please don't bring them in. This isn't a dog. It's my baby. It's my baby in the stroller. Wearing clothes would a dog were close and being a stroller. It's it's very stereotypical but also stereotypes exist for a reason. Well I think the book is a really good job of like showing how far people can take this concept Because there's Doggie Yoga. There's like Doggie like acupuncture. There's like Doggie tupperware parties. Yeah why Guy Said? There's a lot of pet specialty shops and activities in in West. La and even some here in in East la. I would say there's a lot of dogs in Pasadena's while opacity is the west side of the east side to be honest guy so I guess I mean we've kind of like all over the place but this is this is one of those types of books where it's more about like The atmosphere and also just like like the character just being themselves. I mean while we're talking about like the west side setting unlike the rich people and what they do with their fancy dogs. We've talked about the person who was like working these people which is Indira who someone who we first meet as like. Oh maybe she's just another like rich lady except she's Indian and She's a business woman As you learn more about her like and as you learn more about her business which is selling high end bags to all the rich people in the during these part that she she attends. Doggie Yoga to like Hawker Hucker BAGS. after class She.
"mimi" Discussed on The Ikonns
"Things to take action on a list them number one is something. I've been doing for many years now when I when I turned eighteen. I decided to stop eating meat. It wasn't for environmental reasons. I didn't know yet that it was actually harmful to their moment to be consuming like cows and sheep and like the these big animals that take a lot of water and land to grow but actually a few years after I became Episcopalian. I you know Peter started getting gaining popularity and I realized not only about the animal cruelty that goes into which actually knew because you know. I grew up in other by John. Animals were slaughtered right in front of us when we were kids. So I've always known about the suffering and I think that's why maybe when I turn eighteen. That was like I never really enjoyed me. I kind of wanted to like see if I can live without it and then once list up eating number really looked back on that lifestyle so one thing that anybody can do is just start eating less meat. I'm not telling you to go vegan. That's pretty hardcore. I'm even Vegan Myself. But just you know go for quality over quantity if you're going to eat need get it from local grass-fed butchers. Make sure that the animal had a good life like they were like farm-raised nod factory mass produce environment. Those animals have horrible lives. And basically you know I believe we are what we eat like the energy that the animal passes to you the energy you. That's not a good kind of energy anyways so eliminating meat eating less meat can have an incredible environmental impact. So number one again in short telling you to go vegan. Just eat at least even one like less meat dish a week. One day week have a meatless day and just eat vegetarian. Nado in Vienna Day. Just start with that and I think that's going to be quite incredible and will have an incredible impact. Even if you just do that and you'll inspire those around you number to do your bus to avoid. I was GONNA say all single use plastic but it's tough. I mean I've been. I've been trying to do this now for like the last three or four months and they're still like one or two things where sometimes I get stuck with Lake. Pasta is a really hard one. It's like one of my last two things. It was crispy rice crackers. What are they called the rice cakes and I didn't find a solution. I'm just thinking I'm just going to stop buying them and instead of going to learn how to make my own buckwheat sour dough bread and just give Alexa bad because she likes those rice cakes. I don't really eat them. I can live without them so that was one thing. I couldn't find without plastic and then the last thing is like a gluten free pasta that is not a single use plastic and still looking for a solution but everything else to be honest. I've been fine without loopers bit. This recall toilet. Paper is difficult. But there's there are services like though I think there's a couple of friends she could panda. There's a Portuguese brand. I'll have to look them up. And then there's what the crap I think. There are moral European. No but I'm sure. Luke for local services just put zero waste toilet paper. I'm sure you'll find something local particular by yet. You're not gonNA get a luxurious experience but you will get something to wipe era to Schwab so do your best to avoid all single use plastic. But of course it's not going to happen overnight at least just ban like internally in your household ban all plastic bags and plastic water bottles if you start with that. That's already incredible. And then one step by step you know. Try to eliminate the rest. That's of three to five things as you know. Ellis mead avoid all single use plastic and be more mindful with everything that you consumed from close to furniture to books to everything else like only by what you really need and like monitor what you already have gone through your whole house and like really go through your stuff like no what you have because even I went through my stuff because we're moving and I realized there were so many things that I have a few of one example had three baby moisturizers and I'm like many. Why the hell do you have three of the same baby moisturizers? It's like I went into a panic mode. When she had dry skin I ended up buying one and then losing it somewhere in the house and then buying another one like it's absolutely ridiculous and same with some of the stuff in the pantry. Like if you're not really organized which I wasn't until recently like I bought too much rice and then I bought too much of the pasta or some other things and I ended up having cupboard's full of the same stuff now I only by after I ran out so bright before I run out. I know I'm running out of you know bus mighty rise and I go with my own reusable bag and fill it up in the bulk shop or whole foods and fill up my jar. That's one way to do it. You said like how do you approach this topic with people around you whether it's your family whether it's people in the grocery store friends or colleagues or maybe your friends students at your school? One thing that I I've learned from Loren Singer and she's like an incredible girl Super Young very successful in. She's truly my inspiration in regards to zero waste. I've heard zero many times before actually before her but she's to me. She's made a kind of cool and approachable and basically I remember listening to her interview on a podcast and she said that one thing that she does. She doesn't tell people what to do she. Does it herself? So that's what I keep in mind as well when I talked to my family or when I make you know stories on my instagram. I just tell people what I'm doing. I don't expect people to do what I'm doing. I'm just sharing my story. And of course I. I pray that more people do this but I'm not going around telling like you should stop using plastic. I'm just saying I have stopped using prosthetic because of course I do my best to educate people why I do what I do but I do my best to just lead by example so I believe that. Answer all the questions. Have you got anything to add? Yeah thank you very well And so amazing scene. You take that kind of tip. I even remember what he told me that that was still works ago. When I was overwhelmed I we were in the Mexican supermarkets like literally ninety. Nine percent was employed safely. Everything was covered head to toe in plastic. And all like Oh my God again. Do the same thing war. And you're like you just need to chill just like Libya life the way you believe in this and then like the rest of the control and the most amazing thing about that is when it comes to these kind of things. 'cause a Lotta people have this great society of the world that you we get this new awareness realization. All sudden. We started seeing judging everybody else for for living star way but as I told you a kind of remind myself and everybody else is at awareness comes gradually and we can expect everyone to have that awareness. Lucerne things that Sir more where people look at us you guys come on you. We're still unaware outcome reminder. That as well. This is why it's important to go easy on yourself. degree per also go easy on others and just as you said lead with example. Just you know that is the greatest. Quotable time you know is Michael Jackson that Song I WanNa make the world a better place to look at yourself and make the change need to shout. People to buy itself. Dow makes the biggest difference out there. It's huge just you doing the change. Whatever that is even though we we talked about in this podcast critic nat rude. Seen those daily habits of yours Talk about sustainability or lowest. Just talking about your overall life giving give you a funny example energy. That has any out exactly. That goes along with what you're saying. It was thinking about recently. I thought it's so funny like people do this all the time to like. Stop eating meat or stop using plastic or whatever but imagine if we did the same thing about like being kind like if you want somebody to be kind or if you want to start people to be kind what are you going to go around people. Be kind to everybody and you're going to do that and do that's going to be useful. What are you supposed to do like you? Just be kind and by being kind to others or being positive you inspire that in others. So that's pretty obvious. So how come. We're not seeing that in other areas of life like it's just not gonNA work if we're just go around shouting and people. Protesting is fine. I think peacefully but like also people who protest on the street. I think they need to question whether they are themselves. You know composting not using single use plastic instead of screaming at the government's or the businesses like who are you supporting with your money and make those businesses create those businesses as as as you said somebody actually. This is a very important because listening. We've been trying to get frank from the tour on this podcast and we've have assistance. We all the south where he seems to be a little difficult to get doing. A lot of breeze actually ways. No you're right. He's the however will be incredible to have him on. Oh look in the shallows. Fine Frank. Gmc Hey you gotta go on icons podcast and we weren't really ashy. Spread his message and why I bring him up. Is that cures an individual. Who's making a difference in regards to four? How we eat the soil the farmer the former agriculture and yes a lot of people say oh by. Yan Tura is for the rich people is a luxury yes it is. But it's the same thing with many businesses started out with people have more disposable income is you think about Savin Tesla's accompany yes. They are first car. Was One hundred. Fifty thousand dollars then was eighty Benz like now Neil. Thirty forty thousand. Dinner's going down to how we can bring that to the masses in regards to sustainability and my point is many individuals Elon. Musk or a frank who a lot of people listening who have no idea writing. This guy. Franken has team in that Sura. Who Were there? Just looking after produce and basically what they're doing is trying to support farming as it should be like by. Dr Brewers not wear you have single crop of everything on a Land Lake you just growing almond trees but like you have a farm where you grow diverse different plants and vegetables and fruit. Because that's the best for our environment for the plans for the animals and that's what the world has been losing with the industrial farming. And that's why we need to support these small local farmers who still practice that and he's coming to the states by the way for those of you. I know most of our New York. La Skyros are Americans New York away like they're basically now got some farms. They're and they're educating the farmers or aligning with other farmers. Do this kind of practice. It's huge and yeah overall just decides e of another we can add as seasonal and the other thing. That is really cool now that we do that right all hundred percent but we're doing it more a lower interest of once you have the real stuff and gross award as a tomato or peach sure whatever tastes like in season you can go back to other styles like add these delicious and they're one of the creators of this frank. He's very proud of. This is the the winter tomato and actually have. It's this their own kind of thing. Is it the long way? That's winter is a winter tomato amazing the second so many you're not eating seasonally and I'm like seriously guys like one step at a time. This was a believe in winter tomato good to know just delicious software so good. Another thing is it's cool now as we talked about in his podcast to where things vintage secondhand and the more people do it thriftiness now so these are all amazing things and even we had for example. Today you know friends very successful. We had them for Brunch. And we said Hey were. We went through our clauses. Some clothes that were GONNA be donating. They have no. They're cool. What are we have an an and he took some Wysocki? I still have your life jacket from five years ago and that's the way it should be. You know we're passing on close we're going into the community was shame like take your girlfriend's address and wearing it or sharing at through that stuff and I think he will. Mimi's been doing lately on her. Podcasts from grosses opposing hey. This is from two years ago three years ago like we have to shift the culture. Hey it's okay like all this latest designs and sneakers and that's actually not cool. It's always good. Yeah what was laid us. And what's rare it? What's rarest some vintage suffer from back in the day that people have? There's not too much of this is definitely one of the kind of you wearing something. That's more vintage. Think of that so I think it's important to shift. Our culture shift are buying behaviors as consumers ass people and slowly changing and it was like always saw. It's important not overnight as Mimi. You'll save like Mimi's more like tomorrow. We're GonNa Change everything where Mike. I'm taking slow however we still changed.

"Is that a special relationship with dogs. But it was her dad especially was the most connected and intern impacted these lights in and measurable way. Thank you so much for joining US night on dog. Save the people. I'm happy to be here. Thanks for having me. It's my pleasure we're speaking to you from speaking to me from. Houston Texas wonderful so you have such a beautiful story and I wanted to kind of begin. Could you tell me a little bit about your dad? My Dad was a wonderful wonderful guy saying he was much beloved. Didn't San Antonio his name was Arnold Schwartz but it was Texas so everybody called him pick he. I see which actually was a nickname. He had all his life. Love it very easy going berry sweet but completely obsessed with his son was sort of a family joke about you know. The dogs were treated much better than my brothers and I were so. Did you grow up with a lot of dogs through your weekend? We kinda lived by a wet in San Antonio we call the base in because it was there to catch water to San Antonio flooded and we sort of because were by a lot of open land. We'd just kind of kept accumulating pat so we at one time had thirteen cats and I think to dogs and then over time I think we usually were one dog. Painlessly and then later on Did your parents have dogs? Few your brother left the house and that's when things got really bad that's when you know with no children to pay attention to my father really got close to a Corgi. They they wanted. My Mom was trying to find a dog. They could share the core key breed sort of came up as a small dog that thinks that has a big dog personality and all that stuff and my father immediately bonded with the dog. And this dog's name was Wesley. It was a court date and the only person Wesley ever paid attention to was dad. It's so if your dead said. The dog was tired or hungry or even angry. It might mean that he actually was tired hungry I. He was a good projector so he would say you know. I think Wesley Tired if he was bored with something and head to leave my youngest brother's wedding reception because he said he had to walk the dog. Son You're done. Yeah that's adorable. He sound that canines. Were the human decency barometer at La concepts. My father really liked just about everybody it. It was hard to find someone who disliked but anyone who mistreated an animal a he was pretty much done with so as Wesley was getting older. Your mom so that it was time to find a another dog for him or for or for them or Cubans very worried. My father would not survive Wesley. Speth thing because they were essentially best friends. There's a disease that corgis get called. Em It's kind of like LS purse. Lose their back legs than the front legs and they can't move and my mother was very sensitive to things like that so she must have noticed it. I never did so. She started looking around for another dog. That we're go well. Unfortunately my mom died but not before she had arranged to get the dog on the owners. Timetable I'm very sorry about. Your mom was something that was sudden. She died in a fall basically so she decided she would walk the dog and I think that he got tour and she fell down a ravine and Wesley stayed with her till the ambulance. King of Judah your mom passed I think it was really really really hard for him They were really what I remember him saying. In the elevator of the hospital was you said we were a team and they were a team but she found a an older show dog. Dat was being retired so she was about five so dad and I drove up together to get her and she was this beautiful beautiful little corgi named trilby but the dog was great. Binder I thank of knowing my mom wanted trilby and my dad really fell in love with her and so did I. She was just the best dog she compared to Wesley. Well she was outgoing and friendly trail be loved everyone and wanted to have conversations with everyone so we really bonded right away. I just you know she was adorable. My father was not very demonstrative about how he was feeling so I think trill the word than Wesley sort of allowed us. Trilby was sort of a conduit or communication as dogs can be think gosh absolutely. Yeah so I would. Was Wesley when Your Mom? Pest we must have been twelve or thirteen and I was frankly shocked when dad said he had to put Wesley down. You know he didn't say anything. He just took the dog to the vet and had him put down because he was suffering. I mean mom was right. It was good that we had trilby because she was cheerful. And I think she did help. You know it's like she had to go out. She had to be Fed so my dad had to be functional which I think is one of the great things about dogs is that they pull you back into the world than then. Actually he eventually started dating still with people at the dog park. That's where he met the first few women he dated so you know. They started out with things in common right away. Oh that's certainly having a dog on the street or at the dog park. I mean it just opens you up to meeting so many people. Oh Yeah. They're just such wonderful conversation. Starters and you bond with these people. Yeah and so your father he after. Your mom died after Wesley. It was him in trophy with him and trilby. Then Dad started dating someone pretty seriously who also will sit dog nut. Her daughter at one point took me aside and said you know I want you to know. My mom is is obsessed with her talk and I think she said it like it was going to be bad news and I thought Oh no this is perfect and they did then. The two of them took their dogs everywhere. Yeah it was very funny so then it became Casey trilby. The that was she had a poodle in South Dallas. Very well those dogs of yeah. Oh good that's gre- in so your father than Than having some some memory issues. Yeah my dad actually girlfriend noticed it I I mean I think family members I just kept thinking he was getting a little he was but he started. My father always loved to make travel reservations and start to forget and then he couldn't finish books that he'd start and so eventually he had to come and live with us and I had asked the owner of the house next door to us. Just said Gee you know if you ever want to sell it let us know and he remembered twenty years later and so we moved next door and he lived another five years he he made it to get birthday and so during. Your Dad's illness outed he. Ed troby exist together. They coexist pretty much. Like one unit. I down all these places. We can go and eat where she was allowed. Kistins pretty temperate so there were many places with Patios. He really loved having that dog with him as much as he possibly could. He hated the Lieber alone. And I pretty much indulge whenever I could. I just felt like he was old. Knee was pretty much along. Although I guess he had his daughter store I think he actually you know for someone with dementia in their later years. I think it worked out as well as it could. But the dog was a big help. You know she could help him focus and he'd always ask where she was if I can you know. If he didn't see her bring her in and she. I think you know how it is. He just kept someone. All scientific studies have shown if you can put your hand on dog and pet dog. You're gonNA feel better. Oh Gosh absolute. It reminds me of my own father. Die Ten years ago he also had vascular dementia and he was able to stay home by box care of him and then we had people come in to help but we had at that time where my parents had at that time. A Beautiful Labrador. Retriever and Maggie was is lying Yash kept him engaged in present really helped to warm late life that he understood and that he enjoyed and it was. Everything's very schedule that they he worked unit and it was very hard for my mom after my dad died of course but nagy was your savior so I toke story and Maggie was such a big help to my so. Eventually you're dead. Did pass away and when we were going to dad's funeral I got a call from his. Sorta bookkeeper housekeeper was a close friend..
"mimi" Discussed on Bank-Fintech Fusion
"Bank. fintech fusion from CG CATALYSTS Consulting Group. I'm Phillip Ryan and. I'm joined today by Mimi. Saito of instant dot org. Mimi was an early product product. Manager at simple and co-founder of win win which gamified really game. I'd savings we'll get into that. And congratulations on your exit with appreciate it. Thanks for having me. So what point in the process did you get. Involved with. Simple simple was kind of one of the most legendary companies I.. Yeah so I was employee number thirty something and actually hired onto the customer support team so That was really one of the more legendary pieces of the business I would say it's probably the part that is still famous if you will and yeah. I scaled up business out and left. Don't around three hundred employees. I really saw lots of lots of phases of its growth was there before the acquisition acquisition of BBVA compass have seen have seen some things so with that the customer relations. What was the what was the mission behind that. What were you told when you came in. And and how how did that go. Yeah so I think at that time. So simple really founded at the height of the percent movement. And so there was this you you know feeling inside that. We wanted to do things very differently. And that customer experience was at the forefront of simple was developing banks. Were so bad at it and really really hadn't treat their customers very well previously and as we all know you know and that time especially dealing with customer support at a bank is not always the most pleasant experience and so we wanted to really use customer support as a way to connect with customers and really understand what they truly needed out of a product so customer customer support ended up becoming a really interesting part of the product development process and they were always had a in the beginning. They had a very strong voice in that process as well. Can you talk a bit. About what products you built or develop their within that. Because it's a very broad-ranging simples customer support Yeah that's a whole program Graham for sure so I spent a Lotta time doing. I've built a lot of things that simple but I think probably most specifically within the customer support team. A lot of what it started started with wasn't necessarily around what was being built or tooling. It was really more around the culture that we were developing on the customer support team so at that time. Simple was really hiring super super intelligent. Highly empathetic individuals into customer support. And then kind of giving them the ability to generate ideas and come up with with different ways subduing customer support and I built out also a lot of our customer support tooling which really was a pretty key piece of our ability to be able to support customers at that level. I love of service. And so yeah like technically. I built out parts of the customer support. Software which was actually developed internally. We didn't buy that at all externally. It was all developed in house. I also developed symbols court parts of symbols core banking infrastructure. Probably my most notable products. There was actually belt. Banking migration product that moved all of simples customers from Dangkor to getting my goodness. That was a project. We can probably have a whole podcast. So you're on the technology side but obviously customer relations. It's about it's about people how do you. How do you think those things interplay in was that something you thought about. When you're working on that yeah definitely? I actually think that that's one third. That's maybe carried through my career. Is You know I.. I believe that technology mirrors of the people that built it. And so you know like a simple how to highly empathetic culture like I said and and the people involved had you you know varying viewpoints and that was always something that I found really valuable there and I think you know. In the development of products it's really about how people collaborate effectively and in my opinion the best teams the best products shipped were built by the most diverse sets of individuals and so while technology energy solves problems. Really it's people solve problems and they employ technology as well so in my view I like to collaborate with people and I like a lot of crazy viewpoints points because I think that everyone kind of coming from a different perspective really lends itself to developing something that is workable for a lot of people on the other side. God and that diversity in that team did that stick together when you moved over to. Bbva actually can you talk about how. How things that simple changed when yeah and it was acquired totally you know. I think because we always had BANCORP as a banking partner. We were pretty used to working with a more traditional financial institution as a as a partner so throughout the experience of working with banker. I think that really set us up to really work well with BBB because we understood sort of how the more entrenched institutional banks really thought of technology and really thought of simple in that time bank or is one of the better ones are. Yeah but I would say like at that time. We were really what the first to be doing this. And so they were learning with us and I think that was a pretty interesting experience. I would say that if you were to ask folks at Bangor. They would tell. Oh you learned a lot with simple that we either replicate or doubt replicate now and yeah I think so because we had that background with Bangor and made the transition fairly easy but I think what ended up shifting a little bit is I think the diversity still happened. But you know I think it's working with risk-averse Bank and for a product accompany for a technology company that wanted to do things differently and outside of the box and having all these creative ideas you know. It was a lot of collaboration. Aberration is the nice word to figure out figure out what we could actually at about. Migration was an incredible product project because it had to be taken to through two different banks compliance teams. And that was AH experience for me I sell so yeah. I think like we learned what worked well and what didn't work well in those in those relationships and and what I found found was it really is a matter of just being communicative and and helping them understand why you wanted to do something why something was important and then for me. It was really asking the questions about. Why can't we we do that. If I got a note and just trying to understand it was it risk aversion or was there some act like a reason that was easy to understand and documented that. I could see in you know concept with. Can you describe some of those meetings when you know. I'm picturing simple on one side of the table and the bank or in the other side of the table. What what was the it kind of energy in the room like. Yeah they were usually these epic conference calls with like fifty people on a call so that was interesting time but yeah I mean. Usually the general story was usually simple as a crazy idea. I'm in wants to do something. Hey can we do. It was usually the way that those conversations went and so I can't we do it exactly. It would be like. How can we do and so yeah like look. It was a lot of requirements gathering right. They would be like no. We don't like it because of this and I'd be like okay. Well why don't we liked because of this. What's tell me more about ballots. Dig into it. And so I was really like I think I positioned I think symbol did a good job of positioning itself in a curious manner to understand where they were coming from. But certainly like things were escalated. I'd like when we had disagreements because there were there were folks who again like look at things for more risk averse perspective and simple wanted to provide the experience that we wanted to provide and so on things were escalated and usually it was a it was a conversation about like. Hey what are truly truly. The risks here are there are risks. Actually that large as we're making them seem or is there a way that we can maybe enable this in a slightly different way so you moved on John from simple to win win. Can you explain a bit about win win. Yeah totally so. I co founded win win with David Reineck. Hi David He previously co founded stash invest and him and I had both obviously spent time in savings and thinking about savings in different ways. The the last product that I lead a simple was actually the savings vertical so I had just come out of thinking a lot about helping consumers with savings so.

I build up on annual basis to a twenty six mile. Run to me a marathon like is is it's huge. It's immense. I'm sitting directly opposite this woman who's been described as one of the world's most inspirational female distance runners. You're basically L. Tra- running phenomenon. It's true though she can. We just established from the storm. What distance allows you to qualify as an ultra runner Basically anything over the marathon distance said anything over twenty six point three miles. I know so you can go and do fifty K. and you'll qualify as an ultra runner. Okay I will never be one of those yes I would. I mean I'd love this amazing at your ultra chievements as well. They're quite something they're far too long to list by the way but let me let me get this right. We might as well go into some of these events in as well. You want the notorious is it called the six six three three article Trieste out. One of course record is still stunned yes it yeah. It's still sounds as tried. Spent twelve years trying to break it and thankfully now they've changed the course so they'll never break he's saying you set world record for running Jones grew to land's end which is eight hundred thirteen miles eight hundred forty miles. Yeah Oh sorry You completed the double bad water right. which by the way is an epic almost three hundred mile? Run isn't an in death valley horry cheap temperatures. Yeah okay. You're a multiple Guinness World record holder. How many records are other I have three and Mimi and the sense of this. This is the most amazing. You won't mind me saying fifty fifty seven. Grandma ionic three grandchildren see this as a visa. And you only started running at what age are thirty six. How does this? How did you do all this? We'll see age is never a barrier is that you know who say age is just a number and actually to be honest. I only started running because so I want thinner legs and it's so vain isn't it. I've seen her instagram video. You're very onerous. It's not let your glomming for your instagram. You get beyond that you know. I've tried and it's just doesn't work for me. No I mean it's I think you've got to be slightly honest. I can't I know lots of people take fresh Ashcroft and that's ABC's Fab I tend to forget to take fish cross and something you'd think I must put something up. You know. I just awful but I think that's that's who I am. That's why I am so Yeah well I think you look amazing and I think brilliant and also when you do share videos a few training I find it quite inspiring. She's a machine. Come on. I must go into my my my very short very short during the blog and okay so let me get this straight you. You haven't learned before and you decided you wanted slimmer legs. So off he trotted. How did you start? How did how did that happen or did you just went over runner in the book? I literally because again. This is twenty odd years ago and there were very few people running in those days. You know you didn't really see people running around the roads and running parks and things. Like you do now so I just went into my local gym and goes on a treadmill. Now I've been going to the gym anyway but I never got on a treadmill before. Because he wrote scares catch me and I thought I'd fall off the back or something everybody's GonNa Laugh at me and I'm just going to hide my head and walk away but I started by literally walking and then and then building in a piece of running because I couldn't even run for more than thirty seconds really getting out of breath. Yeah it was really hard then gradually built it up until I did my first half marathon Hong that then from you know being of breath every thirty seconds to behalf learners is probably a look at six months three six months something. That's really good. uh-huh I mean to to settle for that. How often do you think you were? You were running stage. I was trying to go to the gym at least three times a week. I was quite determined when I hit my three miles. Also my treadmill excited. I mean everybody in the gym. I mean it's a little rural Jimbo. Everyone put in the gym new disaster. The Five K.. Mark yes I was acidic sizing because I thought you know now officially so Verona and again at that point. I didn't I didn't really know about the marathon. I didn't know about half marathons I didn't know racist existed state and actually. I didn't really know that people ran outside so when I was asked to join a group of girls to do a ten mile run I thought well why not absolutely loved. If there's nothing for me that was the beginning of the insurance you see. I'm impressed that you went and did that from someone who don't need on the treadmill running. Its quite daunting and can me quite intimidating to go and join aggregate existing runners. How did you get over that kind of initial concern or fear that most people would have I think just because it was another challenge and the two girls that I went with? I knew quite well from the gym. We ended up doing the DS the marathon they solved so I knew them anyway. And so from that point point of view there was no pressure from them and they just said maybe this is the relaxed run So we just going out to enjoy it. I think my main concern was at that point. I Don Neuron three miles. This is seven miles further. You know certain bit stupid trade. It wasn't it didn't Care Oh my goodness I assume phrase and then you you probably heard there the MD.. Assist assist everyone in the new Coles as Martha dissolve. And you did that after running thirteen miles as your maximum distance. I did well. I entered it having any John Thirteen so I wasn't up there to be an elite athlete. I wanted an adventure so to me. This was all about having an adventure and just see what what I could do. So if you started at thirty-six how far down the lane have we jumped to the Maratha Saab eighteen months old. Because I mean this is something I've discussed a couple of times before in fact the episode. Suzy Chan who is an ultra runner and she talked to Beta as did Sufi re worth who is also someone. That's done the marathon to stop with suzy. Chan Day was all quite a good experience for them but it wasn't necessarily the best experience for he wasn't no. It wasn't a tool and again when I did it. There were twelve women from the UK who took part. There were no training guides for us to follow so we made our own training plan up which actually turns out. It's very similar to what people would do now anyway and when we got there I got very badly dehydrated. I picked up some sort of but bug which meant that. I just couldn't keep any food or fluids tool inside me so at the end of the third day after doing it's about twenty miles came back in into com- tom and I just collapsed. And I remember the medics trying to put me into the vehicle to take me to the medical tents and I was going. No no no because. I'll be disqualified if I get into. Who Victim Lobbied and they won't you're allowed to be taken to the medical tent and asking them five bags of IV DRIP so? Yeah I'm new literally wants onto everything. Start shutting down so you just want to go to sleep and just curl up in a ball and go to sleep after few hours the the IV starts kicking. It's like a gin and tonic allergies cab feeling much much and I went to a got back into my sleeping bag at about one o'clock in the morning. Do you know say continue to running the next day fifty four miles to the next day and you did what we did yes. The plan originally was to do all in one go and as we were coming up to the main checkpoint. I can't tell you I think I was just feeling flute was the first time that it occurred to me that I might not make the finish line of this events and one of my teammates came up to me and you know she also checked lousy care. I had tears running down my cheeks. I just simply felt rock bottom both physically and mentally. I had nothing left at all and she just said think all those people at home. He's think you'll get a fail off tov now very harsh but you know these words stuck with me every single race that I do does that propel you absolutely because nobody expected me to complete complete this race some blonde going out to the desert who liked makeup and high shoes and high heels and lots of Nice things certainly didn't like camping and being smelly smelly she then walked off and I- inside. I just thought right you have got to work harder. Maybe gotTa Dig Deeper and somehow you are gonNA sketch the finish line of this race. Which I did so congratulations? I mean that is amazing. That just shows life fiercely driven yard. You kind of picked your body to an absolute extreme on many many occasions. I mean let's discuss some of these. Other amazing event quo as is the jungle. Ultra because it sounds quite exotic came fourth in this one I did. I fail fourth overall. Yes it was a half to say the jungle is quite scary. We is in its in Peru. Sorry Shelley in jungle in the proper jungle and it takes part of it takes place in the Manu National Park. which is you can only go there as a tourist with guide so we were able to run through sections? Since if there's a beautiful park ourselves and I was on my own lost the time and you would see the. The forestry devastation occurred so you were running a mud and I'm not joking this at the targets that these machines may make. I didn't think target is the right word but these big dips what you could Stanton Emdin. And they'd be height the same height as a as you but it was fantastic very very humid. Lots of river crossings. I have a fear of water. Say say some of the river crossings absolutely terrified to swim across them. Well either you swing across them not swing you get on us of something. That's swings across the first time I've been on one of those actually and others. You can wait but in the middle fast flowing. Water comes up to above your waist. I I go into complete smelt valor. That stage and I remember on the long stage. We had thirty six and I just physically. Didn't think I could do it. My whole body was shaking shaking because of my fear of water and one of the other competitors was waiting for me and he literally took my hands and he took me across the river even then. It was still fronting but without Tim I couldn't have done that and then he stayed with me for the rest. Oh how long did you say that race was. That was over five days at two hundred and thirty kilometers..

He's a postal delivery worker a mailman, and he actually asked out one of the people on his route. And that will be sharing a really cute way. He walked up to her with an envelope and said, here's a special delivery for you. She opened it up. And it was a letter asking her out. They went out for drinks right after that he walked her back to the place got a hug, and now he hasn't heard from her not only that but she doesn't answer her door anymore and her blinds are closed.

We're not this is not a telemarketing phone. Call. Okay. Then what is it? This is Jubal from Brooke and Jubal in the morning. It's a radio show. Okay. And still not interested. We're not trying to sell you anything or do a survey or anything like that? I actually am calling you because somebody that you know, emailed us and asked us to call you. Yeah. It's kinda crazy. His name is James. Assuming you know, who James is. Yes, I know James in the mailman with a heart of gold. Sound like you agree with that statement there Sherrod? So James emailed us because he wanted us to talk to you. He told us how he asked you out, and you went out on a date with him, and he really liked you. But for some reason, you're not calling him. And now when he goes to your house, your blinds are closed, and you don't answer the door. So he was hoping maybe we could find out why? Oh. Listen, I'd rather not talk about it. Is there anything that? You can tell us. No. I mean, I just don't want to embarrass him. And it's just kind of information. So if it's embarrassing for him he wants to know. Right. And you put yourself in his shoes. I mean, this guy likes you. He spent weeks working up the courage to ask you out. He finally does it you guys go out. And now, you won't even answer your door. So you guys just wanna know why I've been avoiding him. Well, he wants to know too. We all wanted. Everybody wants it. Okay. I mean, I wouldn't have even really gone out with him. Honestly. But he he wrote this really sweet mutter and it of plays hard out there. And so I said, yeah. And I guess it would have been fine. If he hadn't really just crossed the line. Wait, why wouldn't you have gone out with them prior to that letter run on the mail guy? You know? Option. Maybe I dunno. Isn't that kind of weird today your mailman, then they're still coming to your health? May more importantly, I want to know what you mean by he crossed the line. What did he do? Well, we went on a date and after that everything was fine. But a couple of days later, I found this no in my mailbox, and he had opened my utility Bill and saw that it was late. And so he paid it for me. What that's that's way. Yeah. Sweets. You don't like that? You guys that's a federal crime. That's what I thought. I thought and I was like I'm pretty I think that might be illegal for him. Job. I can see how he thought that that might be a sweet gesture, but like you said it's a legal for him. And overnight. How did you? I mean, did he leave a note it there is how you realize he paid for it. Yeah. You basically like, hey, Sharon saw that your Bill was late, and I paid it for you. So here's the Bill don't pay it, man. Guy was my mailman pay all my late payments, Debbie. Great baller at all. It's intrusive and creepy. What other meals he reading? That's my problem. Exactly. I'm not reading any other male hold on. That's the only thing that I looked at. What's going on? Sharon, that's James. He's on the other line and wants to talk to you. Are you kidding me? James now, listen, I I think it's a little unfair. What you're saying? I I really just was trying to do a night thing for you. All that your Bill was late. I hope you out. I wasn't trying to freak you out or, you know, get too involved with your life or anything. I just thought that does something I could do to help you not feel like I'm being punished for it. Now. Okay. But that's creepy. Don't you see how that's creepy? If you say that it is at the time. I didn't think of it that way, you know, it says right on the outside of the Bill payment past due. I wasn't kill rifling through the mail or anything is really just this one Bill that I saw. And I thought that it would just be a nice thing. I could do to help you out. I wasn't trying to to go through the mail or anything. You don't know what my financial situation is? You didn't maybe I just forgot to pay it. You know, I it's all very intrusive. Well, regardless of whether or not you pay yourself. I just paid for you. I thought that's a nice thing is you you never thank me for that or anything. No. Thank you. Nothing. Man. James? Why didn't you tell us about this new? I talked to you. I would have been able to tell you right there. That's probably why she's not calling you back. I just I just didn't you know, wasn't part of the date. So I didn't think I needed to mention. Yeah. That's a pretty big. Leave out. I don't know. I just how much was the Bill one hundred seventy two dollars..

"I'm sitting here with Mimi Sheraton. We're in mimi's home. Maybe Sheraton is a legendary food writer, which I think we could try out the word the adjective, legendary when you've been at it as long as she has Mimi is in her early spry woman in her early nineties, and I've just took a gander at her kitchen, and I have to report, no food island. Maybe we could get onto the idea of the food island and how that's changed. You should know that in these sport full podcast. They will be featuring a few episodes based on the popular live show asked me me, and you will be able to ask Mimi all your questions based on food and entertaining because you know, food is about a lot more than food. And so as mimi's career, thanks, thanks for having me to your home. Well, I'm delighted to have you here. Welcome. So I did. Thank you. Thank you. I did check out a little surreptitiously check out your kitchen because I wanted to know what August food writer. Her what she stocks, lots of pans more pans than I thought I'd see many in copper more pants than I thought I'd ever have many of which I used to use don't do much cooking now. But to be very honest about it, my husband, he'll had wholesale a wholesale. He was an importer of all kinds of kitchen. We're in dishes, and he had a line of copper, and when he closed the studio it was really easy to bring it home, then ship it back to France expert. So so much you'll notice it's not polish, right? But that's good. It gives it. Let us say literally a Patino of authenticity. So let me I've seen your life show a couple of times. And it does strike me that you are asked as many questions about entertaining, and sort of sociology as you are food. So here's a here's a hypothetical question. Would you rather live? Let's say it science fiction, and it's either a world where food doesn't taste totally. Land. But just food in general doesn't taste as good as it does. But you have the entire social interactions around food or another scenario would be that food taste wonderful just as good as it does now, but you have to eat every meal alone. Which would you prefer that's a very very tough one. Because I am meeting almost every meal alone. Unless I go out and the meals I prepare hell of a lot simpler what I, but I'm not sure how bland the first choice. Is you didn't say it was totally bland, it's okay. It's like old bread tastes, no better than wonder bread. And oh, no. Vegetables are kind of those out of season vegetables, where tomato has somewhat texture of tomato. But not the burst of a really ripe tomatoes. I guess every once in a while I'd have to eat alone tasting meal with flavor or I would go out or send out to where could come in and be good. So tell me about when you got your what was your first paying gig writing about food? My first paying gig was I was on seventeen magazine, and I was the home furnishings at my I feel was designed New York school of interior design and that and I shared an office with the food editor and she left and they said, and they the editor new I love to cook. And then I pot it around in the kitchen. She said why don't you do that too? Because it's not such a big deal on seventeen and you can do food and home furnishings. So I did what was this? Let's see I joined them in forty nine. And I would. Guess in about fifty one fifty two nineteen fifty one was their notion of a seventeen year old essentially someone about to become a wife. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, seventeen magazine which began about seven or eight years before I joined it was the dream of a woman named Helen Valentine who wanted a magazine for teenagers..
