Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more
"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about. I don't know maybe a sixty some former graduate assistants were either in major college or professional that had been graduate assistant said many people gone on u. p. care coach for me at the university of arkansas. We we started him out You know monte kiffin coach for him in the defense coordinator tampa bay et cetera. Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because. I prepare them but because of the contribution they made our success but not mind. There's there's their contribution to my success is far greater mike. Entre bution to there's

Maria Sakkari on being part of a tennis family
"Thank you for your time. First of all, my wife's so obviously the French Open had been different than New York, but everyone's talked so much about the conditions this year. Is it that different than the French Open? You played last year in the spring? Yeah, of course, I mean, even though in springtime you can have some cold days and rainy days you in pies, of course, you know, my first round match was I think the coldest day and we played in the rain so think like the ball just turned brown. You cannot see any yellow from the bowl, but to be honest, you know, it's just you have to accept it embrace it and just be grateful that you have the opportunity to play another grand slam, even though it's you know, under these conditions you may the fourth round of a grand slam twice in the French Open you made the third round what kind of expectations do you put on yourself going into a major? Well, I do put I mean, I think that's what makes me, you know a good job. Sure that the have expectations for myself. I have I'm coming here with the mindset of winning the tournament. Of course. It's a long way to go but I'm not coming here to to win too much has and I'm like, okay, I my third round. No, that's not my mentality. And I know that I can do it and you know shown some great tennis this year, especially in a solid as well. And I think that I don't see why not going deep deep here or in the next major. How do you unwind and stay entertained in all of these different bubbles off when you're in a tournament, especially in a slum stress level is like after here. So let's say in Australia that we were not in the bubble. I had room service most of the nights because I just wanted to be as relaxed as a good so it's not a big difference. It's just the fact that you cannot go out. That's what makes most of the players, you know feeling a little bit trapped wage. But to be honest to have a great team that makes it so much better. You know, we're having a lot of fun with dom and Daniel so, you know good food good company and found my friends back home. I cannot complain that soon nothing, you know negative from my side. So I kind of liked it. I think I'm going to be sad once this wage bubble thing is over because I feel less stressed. I have to say wow, that's a good perspective to have and you mentioned your team. So Tom Hale and then who's Daniel dials my Physio and Tom is of course my coach. Is it fun working with a team? That's so young. So we're all twenty-five years old mean, and Daniel which makes it so fun, you know, but of course we're working with Tom. It's so easy. I mean you have nothing to worry about she takes care of most of the things before I even tell him his job. Larks have nothing, you know nothing to complain about and I just enjoy every every time you you know, I'm on the court with him. So it's great to have you know, these people around them. They're not like a family member, you know, what was the quarantine experience like for you? I know you're Greek, but you're based in Monte Carlo. So what was the quarantine like I was in Greece because God I just wanted to be you know with my family at that time and my brother my sister came back also, so we spent the whole time together with was amazing, you know, go to clubs a lot in my fitness and stuff because was the only thing I could do outdoors and just started playing tennis after five weeks since I came back from South Indian was it was it was nice. I have to say I enjoyed home. Your mom. Angelica was a top forty WT a pro. I feel like no one really talked about that so much. So what is that? Like has she influenced wage? Career a lot. Yeah, of course. I mean seen Seymour mom now with you know, it's nice but she always has some jobs, you know things like good things to say and oh forget the word now like advice like advices. Yeah advices. So I you know, she has been here actually she stopped when she was twenty-five. So it's imagine like me stopping now, there's no absolutely no chance. But you know, it's great to have someone that really knows what you're going through. She's she's a great supporter. Does she still hit that she play with you ever. Oh, that's so that's the thing that you know, I am actually complaining about her cuz I'm like she works out a lot in the gym like every day we have personal trainer, but she doesn't play. I think I'm going to convince her to you know, Start eating again.

A Conversation With Kristina Azarenko
"Joining me this week to get her take on the Digital News Christina as rain. Co Founder Marketing Syrup. Christina how're you doing today? I'm GonNa Thank you and I'm really surprised that I'm on three hundred and seventy four. Fourth August. And we've been doing that for quite a while. Yeah for a couple of weeks. We've got started around the beginning of October. Anyway Yeah we've been doing this for nine years. So have you worked out what that episode is going to be. Now nothing whatsoever no. He just tickets you doesn't even weigh in on that. I know I have no idea. Episode number that'll be. Over four hundred. That's a safe bet. No. It's not well depending on how we're recording now. Yeah. We'll see we'll probably GONNA be doubling up on this. Yeah. Yeah absolutely. So just for our listeners, we are actually changing up our formed a little bit. We're actually giving you more than nugget is interviews. So we have a part one and part two with Christina, as well as the news. So we're going to give you some commute time podcasting as opposed to the long form. How in the world could I ask you to listen to a full hour of me ranting. Do it every day. Yes you do they. Wait a minute wait. No. Now, you're right. So I should just subject to all the audience for that right all right. Well. We got first article that we want to go over with you. Christina. So there are first article from search engine journal by Roger. Monte. We always love what he's doing over there at search engine journal Google answers if site sections, parts of the site can actually impact the overall ranking score of the entire site. So the question was by publisher that has a forum on their side that has a poor core vital score while the rest of the site enjoy higher core web. Performance very well, you can have two different platforms installed on the same host environment. Obviously. So what core web vitals are, it's a, it's a group of speed and user experience metric rolled out. Much before they actually showed up in Google search console but those that they together show a web page what page actually presents and with a poor user experience in or gives visitors an ideal web browsing experience. So his answer was well the question first and foremost was we have a large site and a section on the then we have a forum there at this forum is an old cms and is difficult to. Optimize for speed we're looking to make sure that we have a good core web vital score before twenty twenty one able to improve the speed of the forum. This will this only affect the keywords that that ranked for the foreign pages or will it affect the ranks of the pages aren't on the forum that are actually faster? So John's response real quick and I'll get Christina's take is so in general are algorithms. Tried to be as fine grain as possible. So if we can't get granular information from your site and recognize the individual parts of the website property, then we'll try to do that. So, he actually shared how chrome aggregate Corwin vile scores you share it in a bit of a caveat of that However, it does actually depend a little bit on your site and how much data we have for your site especially when it comes to speed. So there is a new chrome aggregate score that as people who use the Google chrome browser go to that website they're actually pulling that data directly from those experiences like a core sampling. No Pun intended of users that are interacting with a website Christina, what are your thoughts about Corwin vitals and on top of that different cms on one system and how could it could play into ranking? Yeah good question. So well, first of all again, this is not live yet. So all my thoughts are not, they don have the real experience on because. This report is not is not live as now. I mean it's live on Google by that we how Google is going into interpreted and have everything and aggregated is not live yet what I think in January when I think about vitals when I think about speed first of all, think not about Seo which view it because I'm an SEO. It's not done for Seo percent is done for users. I I would think that for this particular about site if you upset is amazing create but forum is really hard to read and hard to reach from a mobile phone. Maybe you should think about migrating it to changing something not for the sake of being compliant with corporate wide else but just for the sake of users. Coming to you and having really good time when you are for right that is the man, the main point. So I like that Google is pushing it over time. It has been pushing mobile I mode mogul I indexing a long time and I know that maybe. They just phone start thinking about something. She's good for us mixture and unless Google pushes down so it's It's a good thing to do. But again, I would think about your users I and if aunt in this particular case. If this guy is asking fashion, he knows that he's forum is really. Slow, I will change it. You can agree to something else in January having different content management systems is okay. You can have a store in show defy and your blog on wordpress. It doesn't necessarily mean that if you using multiple content management systems, your website is going to be slow. Its cage us down four different kinds of content you
"montes" Discussed on The Gratitude Podcast - Stories That Inspire Positive Thinking
"Let's go out. Let's go out and play or she bring me a ball and just to get me to just let go and then I start laughing of course, which lets go of stress. And so we in many ways. She I think she expresses her gratitude by helping me to be better by helping me to enjoy life by helping me to play more which is something that's so many adults forget how to do. So it's just these little moments where she puts her paw on me and then she just looks at me on a street, you know, and it makes me laugh and makes me smile and makes me feel really good and science has shown that when you make these connections with an animal companion when you even touch their birth Or you even pet them so many beneficial hormones start to go off into your body that make you feel good and they make you feel loved and a great sense of well-being. So I'm constantly looking at her and seeing how much she is enjoying life and thinking if she can do it if she can let go of all of that if she can forgive in a way what's happened to her. Well, gosh, so can I tell you exactly and the Beautiful part is that you've also created something to to help us do that as well right? Tell us about Paul's for the good stuff. Yes pause for the good stuff. Well having had so many animals in my life and then going off and having a practice or a career as an acupuncturist. I put off healing practice along with our love for Animals together in these journals called pause for the good stuff stuff. Sorry pause for the good stuff. When is for dog lovers and one is for cat birth. Verse and it allows people instead of because journaling and your gratitude and be one of the most powerful practices you can have but a lot of people sit in front of a blank page and think to themselves. Will what do I write? What do I do? So these gratitude journals just it's a very simple it's five minutes a day. But every day you have something to write about for example, the one thing that I like the question I like is how can my best my BFF which is my best friend forever inspire me to have a more positive day. So in just a few minutes you just write down what your dog or your cat inspires you to do on that day. And so there's just a few little questions that you answer every morning and also in the evening right before you go to sleep and encourage people to write down three positive things that happen to them in that day because again that in the morning and in the evening is when birth Our brains are the most receptive to when our brain waves are the most receptive to the thoughts that we put into our minds. So either you're waking up and thinking oh man in the world is so terrible and I'm going to go read the news. So my brain will now take in more terrible information or you can start your day by pausing for the good stuff and writing down the things that May Fire you about your animals. So as I said, sometimes people can't think of anything but they'll always think of reasons that they're animals can Inspire them to have a better life. So I wrote this so there's a different things like every week. I have a little thing you can do every month. There's something you can do. I've created these little crepe great little videos that you can also just just little Snippets that will help make your journaling experience even richer and so that's why I created pause for the good stuff and believe me it helped me when I was going through my adoption my adoption Saga it helped me to have them. Is inspirational journals as well, even though I wrote them if they help you. Yeah, exactly many times we create things for others because right now he need them as well and we find them useful as well. So I totally believe that then one important part about the name falls for the good stuff is I love what you did there with with the pause. It's actually p a w s not a u s e so it's pause for the good stuff. Yes. That's correct. And I pretty much every time I use the word positive since most people know me as somebody who you know is an animal person when I even took the word positive. I like to say the word stay positive, but I always spell it P a w s i t i v e. Yeah. I love that. I think it's dead. Amazing that you use that that idea because it's indeed they the pets in our life and even if they don't have pets one thing that they love to do with with my girlfriend is to watch funny videos with pets and even just watching them makes us feel very good and that makes us laugh and it just eases up everything and wage. I think it's beautiful hand or Paul and that they they are actually reaching out to us to to find more positivity and to just be more present and happy and accepting of birth. Uh, the current situation that is quite the struggle for for many of us. I agree. I agree, you know, we're not the only begins in this world, you know, we we live amongst animals and you know, if we can create a powerful connection and nurture that connection every day and not not just look at them as being inferior. What did they have their own intelligence and that they're here for their own purposes. I think that makes life a lot richer and it opens us up to so much more and I believe that animals in the way make us better humans. That's so true. That's so true. Actually, when when I think about for instance, it's usually happens with guys. I think when.
Three neat venture rounds, and Alibaba’s latest
"All right. So talking about the weekend well, here's what's up as the American election looms and the holidays beckon things kind of slowed down this weekend. Now, it's a little bit soon to say that this is the new normal, but certainly, it felt more like a traditional late October weekend if that makes sense. So posts covering new rounds where little bit light there wasn't a lot of news. There wasn't a big acquisition that drove the Monday morning chat cycle so here. Are Some things that did happen that really do matter but I think we can all exhale just a little bit as we head into the second half of October. So according to TECH WRENCH DOT com, you may have heard of it. alibaba group is going to spend about three point six dollars to take a controlling stake in Sun art. One of China's largest big box supermarket chains after transaction is complete, alibaba will own about seventy two percent of art this calm i. Because the Amazon wholefoods I, mean this seems to be relatively similar. What's interesting is Alibaba actually invest in son are back in two, thousand, seventeen million just under three billion for just over a third of the company. Now, this matters because that's part of Alibaba's quote new retail strategy new retail kind of blurs the lines between online and offline commerce. This should sound pretty familiar to all of us have seen Amazon, to this inside of its now big buck stores and other people are trying to do curbside pickup even small businesses it appears. That like this e commerce world that we all think everything's going to become we'll still have a larger physical footprint than we probably anticipated. So Fun to see what China is doing. Think about, what happens our marcus down the road Alibaba out a lot of money even during relatively bad economic times worth catching up on and it kind of good news this morning space x fired another sixty satellites into the sky as part of its starlink project to speak at all really moved the boonies when Musk and company done bring internet? Everywhere. So turn to funding around this morning, our bread and butter I found a few really really cool ones despite the talk of a slowing new cycle anyways in no particular. Here are three start ups that are funny runs out that are worth checking into if you have the time. We're GONNA START WITH API, which is a I F I. M printers pronounced eight five new they have announced a fourteen point five million dollar round this morning the company is calling this a pre series b according to crunch base news, which sounds like a series a. plus maybe a series B. minus or really just called a series B.. It's fourteen point five, million dollars any investors in the round include qualcomm ventures, serve ventures, translink capital, and a new investor clinic quench base news called Plum. I never heard of plum alley or serve adventures just goes to show how many theses firms there are out there right now, all that. Aside, what does if I do? Well, they build checkout free experiences for consumers. Essentially, they allow other folks to build and operate autonomous stores. So my read is like this Amazon go but for everybody crunch news post up on this, according to that article, fourteen stores from a fire in the market lots more coming off of capital here. Exciting to see the Sir Technology Spread more broadly I'm not entirely sold on it yet. But of course, always hard to know what's going to be the future and a lot of people are betting that this is that next up, we have law Maddox, a San, Diego based startup that is building software for lawyers kind of marketing crm. Suffer Lawyers. It has raised two point, five million dollars in seed funding always nice seen actually seed funding sized seed round very rare in twenty twenty. Why do we care about this? Well, we've known that for a couple of years vertical sats, which is software aimed at one particular slice of the market one particular. Law or like gardening has been pretty hot for a while. So why not this lawyers have money target them take some of that money gee-gee funding round was led by any act ventures forefront venture partners, and then of course, rebel ventures and bridge venture partners took part I know about half of those firms again. So many VC firms out there kind of crazy according to TC. A big part of what law maddox wants to do was help automate marketing tasks for law firms to big part of their business of nurture clients to the backslapping handshaking. Stuff really does matter even in the digital realm and like you said, alerts have money. So this round probably GonNa work out pretty well law maddox. And for a third run, we're GONNA leave the US and talk about cheaper which raised twelve million dollars. Now I try to proud correctly on the show because it's respectful. In this case, it's H. I. E. R., which is not chipper nor is it Go cheaper best shot. anyways. This is an ECOMMERCE platform for merchants in Latin America it series a was raised from wind ventures and two groups called Montes and Kosic ventures. The startup claims his built quote, the largest brand never of digitized corner stores in Latin
Things You Should Know Before Your First Loan Attempt

The Rays Eliminate the Yankees In a Heartbreaking Game 5
"Me ask you this e because. In, twenty seventeen, there was this new core coming up right. And the thought was hey. Unexpected Ron made the playoffs one game away from the world series and I remember even the wildcard game against Minnesota that year was like just let this core group get a playoff series under their belt so that they get some experience and can grow with it. You got within one game of the world series one one of the world series it didn't happen. Now, there's a postseason failure in eighteen in one, thousand, nine hundred and get to the brink again, it doesn't happen in twenty losing game five of the LDS. At this point. Does it still if you're part of that group. visit. Still feel like you're ascending or do you start wonder if you've plateaued Now, you deficit they just sending I mean especially, those guys are so young you know what I'm saying like. inexperience in you know in age. So Yeah I. Mean You know going back over that run like seventeen we had to run. With all those young kids in. Out though I didn't I had I, didn't think it was gonna make the playoffs just just because we went to the playoffs in seventeen and everybody had career years we're coming back. You know with a young team I just I was surprised that we made the playoffs gotta ask. about a red sox end. In the next year, I thought nineteen, we were set up to. To to make a great run a debrecen. Obviously, we didn't do that. NFL This year you know is short season everything went on. So just to be able to to get out there and play and compete I think guys are excited. You know excited I mean I think is a lot to build on I. Don't think. I don't think you can up this year with the rest of them just because it was such a short season you don't think any. There's no like wondering are we the you know late nineties braves early two thousand braves where we're going to. We're GONNA get to a certain now they won one in ninety five to be fair to them. But then you know they're winning division after division after division losing to the playoffs losing the playoffs listen to play. Yeah I mean it does that enter the mind of this group at this point. I. Like I'm not in a group anymore so. I can't. Really tell you if they're starting to feel like that or not. You know. I was never I was never in that position I was about to say as a young player would. Myself as when I was young, I always felt like I had time like like August time to do you know what? I'm saying I got time to do, and then like I say, I, always bring up a seven because that was our year like we put it all together and that was a year and didn't happen. So starting panicking. So. You would have to ask the guys individually which year they thought that they were GonNa win in when it doesn't happen that year then you start panicking like shit maybe this this may not have you know hand. Right now all those guys play for the Yankees in they noted that the organization will do whatever they can to try to win auto free agents, auto players, and so no I think that they got time you. and. The reality is the starting rotation. Looked a lot different than what they had set out for because you thought you were going to have Severino James Paxton right behind Garrett Cole and you didn't, and obviously that changes the equation and made you have to use the bullpen differently, etc. Now, I, WanNa talk about coal for a minute see look if there's One Guy. Who acquitted himself beautifully in this Yankees. postseason. It was Garrett Cole I. Mean This Dude was everything they could've asked for he gives up one hit in this game and who knows if it's not for some weird wall overhang that Aaron judge got to familiar with maybe he doesn't even give up any hits in his five and a third innings. He. He really delivered and that you have to feel good about knowing okay. This guy is going to shove exactly the way you want him to this time of year yet. That was great to watch him be able to go out before. As that I know he wants you know what I'm saying. So it'll be good not this time next year everything rolling around you'll be fans in the stands and. Hopefully. We can have that Yankee Stadium proxy magic, and. Readiness. All the way to to we're supposed to be, which is a berated. I. What about pitching on three days Resi. What feels different like do you notice like all my arm isn't as strong I mean what? What what makes it a more difficult challenge when you're not pitching on your normal rush when you're pitching on short rest, it's not necessarily like your are being source. It's like everything else like little aches Oh you know you know you didn't get your. Your full arrest so you can't really overthrow You know watching that I felt like he was trying to give his normal effort their first ending everything was up. You know he was all kind of all over the place. Any just kinda settled in you know what I'm saying he gave us time you take a little longer than than usual and. He kinda settled into the game was able to find this delivery. That's the one thing about picking three days you have to find your delivery like. Were percent. Can you pitch at whether that? Sixty, five, percent seventy, five, percent, eighty, five percent. You know what I'm saying like you have to find that was going to make you be able to strikes in and be effective. So if it seems like you've found that right at the right time, you got to strike out and you know he kinda he kinda sail from after that I mean you have to Solo homer to tomatoes and then you know almost today what's that guy's name? You say his name well over process l. no the guy run our arousal arise arena Larussa Rhody. Almost curveball out but other than that. You know he pitched great. So yeah like you said I mean he delivered and and you know going forward that he'll be able to to to pitch in these situations you know several be able to pitch any situation. We saw what money can do to two nights ago. Yeah. Your boy came man Monte the Frazier Bryant Man, these guys these guys are in a good spot. So like I said nobody I don't think anybody in their Hispanic and not player. Wise. Anyway, you know that that's is the fans in the front office and stuff. You are the master of pitching on three days Resi and because of that even though it has a little less punch because the Yankees lost this game compared to what it would have been if the Yankees won this game. I want explore that a little bit further with you because you you did it a lot. I mean the way you did it in. Milwaukee with multiple starts down the stretch over and over again as you were just in Bistro and then we saw it in the nine playoffs as well where you did it the entire Oh nine playoffs and delivered you did it in game one and four of the AL CS is at it again in Games one and four the world series. What kind of advice did you offer Garrett Cole as he was getting ready to do it for the first time in his career as someone who did a lot and did it in big stages? You know what I didn't and I was watching the first thing that I was like man Fuck I should've called. You know what I'm saying. But I didn't he's he gates. He's he he figured it out on his own. You know what? I'm saying, I don't need to call bad like he'll call me if he did something. Yeah so I don't I don't want to bother him. I don't WanNa call him I know how he is. You know know the days before you know the day of leading up to historic. So you know I I don't want to call him but please believe I'll facetime mining when I figured out that he was making start. Well whatever you told Monte in the face time, it worked out really pitch well and game four and I was encouraged. You know see if we go through this game, there's not there's not a lot to nitpick and say, okay, this could have been done differently. This could have been done differently. We've just lost a game and. You just lost a baseball game to. All the time where we go to Tampa or we we play apple you know what I'm saying. So that's why I was so scared to play them in the playoff series because. That's the one team that I know that can fucking Peterson the series and they know it too. Yep Yet one hundred percent. It's how I felt last year too when they were playing the Astros and people like Oh we want the race I was like the race competing in the. Last. Year to we would have been counted the same. You know what I'm saying we would have been a seven game series for sure if they beat if last night got typically fucker pitches. Right move coming for the first. and. On the whole right I mean this is this is not what you are looking forward to. If you're major league baseball as far as ratings go I believe the Yankees when all is said and done at the end of this s I think they're gonNA have nine of the top ten highest rated games thus far in the playoffs they're going to have been involved in. So you know you better believe that there are going to be people who are wishing that the Yankees went as deep as possible for the sake of you know the economics of the sport, but from a pure. David Goliath baseball storyline, and there is something amazing even though it's not going to make my stomach feel-good or your Z. about the Tampa Bay rays and they're twelve dollar payroll. Taken down the big bad Yankees and Brosseau hitting the home run off Chapman after that like there's something crazy about that story how many times it I tell you that's not the way we do my career I'm not into. The raise but winning visit. I kept telling you that. The fucking raise

Like, 'cause you know I've been trying to trace trace back my father's side on the family you know once I started to get interested more abolish genealogy geology where we were from and what you know. My Dad was actually in the military and he you know he was actually caught up through just dictatorship us he was on that but the wild thing about that, his dad, his sister, my aunt she worked for the the opposite President Enhanced Dominican Republic with them in the sixties when when the loss the EH associated. Oh Man. Yeah she teaches he traveled to Europe with them when we had to flee in then somehow ended up back in America and I've tried talking to her against some stories about what that was like again, martyrs three and she won't speak about him and. Famous with my parents I, try to talk to the Minnesota's like. A. Lot of there. So yeah. It's like, yeah, I'm sure that it's painful. I really difficult and. It was always very curious about it and I was never able to crack my dad. And my mom and my mom, you know I'll never get it out of her. Yeah. So. There was one time. My Dad passed away. It was like three or four years ago going on four years. Now at some point he you know he was really sickening.

The potential impact of the first debate on the presidential race
"I have moderated several debates, You know, statewide debates here in Virginia in my media career. I've Crept a lot of different candidates for debates. I've sat through a bunch of them watched a bunch of Monte ve never have I seen anything like what we witnessed last night. I I thought it was pretty embarrassing for the for the country. And Ah, I'm not sure exactly how to dissect this. Ah, but I don't think it was good for America. Hey, for America for Americans and probably made us look bad in the eyes of Other countries and people around the world who were watching. I thought it was pretty pretty bad, Dr. Bob Holsworth says, watched his fair share of debates and has been a moderator on a number of occasions. So, Dr Ellsworth, I appreciate you Joining us this morning. What's your first reaction after that nine minutes last night? Well, you know, it's pretty similar. John. I've moderated as you have, You know, a number of gubernatorial senatorial debates, some that were pretty tense in my life. I've never seen anything like this before. It just really was not at the level that one needs to On one has the right to expect from a presidential debate. And so then the question becomes down the road, You know? What does this mean? Politically? And you know, I have to say that my sense is that if you think the president is behind Nothing happened last night. Um, helped him out Not to say that Joe Biden was particularly good. Um, but at the same time, I think this raises the question of anybody's gonna watch the next two debates. And I'm just wondering what happened to the audience after 15 minutes or 30 minutes of that last night. Um, how many people like us plowed through it all? Hey, you think people turned away or do you think it was like a bar brawl where you've got your back up against the wall, and you just stand there and can't believe what's unfolding in front of your face? Yeah, Yeah, I think that you know, either one could have could have happened, but I think it was in some ways. Um Ah, turn off. I think that it was not something where you know, usually after a debate, What happens is that we'd be talking this morning about the different positions. People took on the issues who won on this issue or who won on that issue, But but that's not what people are going to be talking about. They go all going to be talking about the tone of the instability of it all. The fact that you know, the moderator lost whole early on. Never got it back that the whole thing went off the rails so quickly. That's what that's what's going to be memorable about this debate. You know. Typically, we look at the kind of a moment in the debate a moment that you know may have an impact all the way down the road, and there may have been a couple of those moments last night, but buying large What is going to be the story about this was the embarrassment in disgrace that this debate eventually concluded with You. What did you think of Chris Wallace as the moderator? I mean, clearly you got you got Donald Trump being hyper aggressive and I thought of noxious. Look, I've never said that. I I think Donald Trump is a jerk. I don't think I'd want to work for him. I voted for him. I'm still going to vote for him. But I think he's a jerk. And I thought Joe Biden came office. Not totally with it and himself pretty offensive, saying shut up, calling him a clown. I mean, you know he was much He was willing to jump in there and scrap, too. But I thought Chris Wallace made a point of Personally debating with Trump and asking loaded questions towards Trump that I'm trying to be objective here. Maybe you push back on me. I just don't think he asked the same loaded questions to Biden. Well, I think he no. Remember a time. She said. You know the president trying to get him to calm down a little bit. You know, you're gonna like the next question. Then I gotta ask Joe Biden. I'm gonna go ask question that's favourable towards you. I look, I think Chris Wallace overall is pretty darn good interviewer. I thought he was going to do a much better job, and he did. Um, I think he was probably in some ways surprised by what had happened and just couldn't get this thing. I'm back on the rails whatsoever. And, you know, you know, there's a question about you blame Chris Wallace. Do you blame Donald Trump? Do you blame? You know both participants? Um, but at the end of the day, um, you know, I thought this had the potential to be the best debate. The cost of Chris Wallace because of his capacity to ask program questions and it didn't happen. Um it's just got off the rails and never got back on. And, you know, at the end of the night, I just thought that it was a um, you know, I thought I remember. I told you yesterday, I told you the end of the end of the debate. Chris Wallace might be the winner before. That was a bad prediction. Ah. Because you know, no one's calling him a shining star of this whole thing. I'm not sure that that's his fault. I do think he framed. Some of the questions in a very Negative way the vulnerability for Donald Trump. I think at the end of today, and all the analysis is going to be Donald Trump didn't announce white supremacy as if he has this obligation to do that, again and again and again, to be the moment they're going to try to. You know, the Trump campaign will try to deal with that today, but the end of it, I think I think here's a situation that would ban for the president. You know, Certainly they wanted to prevent Joe Biden during this sort of doddering senile, not with its kind, and I think at the end of the day, this made probably more questions about Trump's personality. Then you know Biden's capacity there and at the end, if you see these polls that show that Trump's doing very well overall, particularly with doing better with men and with Biden, but not doing well with women. That was not a women friendly. Ah sort of debate performance by the president last. I don't think you added anything. There and you wind up with people who even prepped him like Chris Christie saying. Well, he was a little too hot. We can't or, um, say it was a missed opportunity. And you got you and you're gonna have a number of these Republicans running in Senate races. Um, any or in states like Maine in Colorado and Iowa, who were unhappy with that performance last night that you know

How about a language vacation
"Tour Guide Kerry Walker is an American language, but she's worked on her language goes in Central America and was immersing herself in Italian lessons when we last checked in with her Kerry, where have you gone in Italy to study the language I? So I started off in a school at Monte Pacino School in town so I Did that for about a week, which was a great start but then left I really needed more so I quickly learned that private lessons for me were the way to go really get the most being my book I said my last two studies have been in home stays with my teacher. So private is better than group for you for me, but is it more expensive because it's one on one? It is more expensive. But my goal is to really learn the language and order to do that. I realized that I really need that one on one, which is focused exactly on where I am where my misconceptions are the things that I want fine tune, and also that the places that I want to go may teacher can take me there much more quickly they can tailor the teaching to your exact interests you know all over the. World there's a lot of people earning their living despite teaching. English. As a second language is it can flip flop it. Are there a lot of people in Italy that earned their living or supplement their income by teaching foreigners Italian without question it's a big business. How you learn about that you know there's a lot of different ways. There's not one place to go to I. Really do it a lot of different ways I. Just asking people, where did you study? So I, got my last home state through my Italian tutor back home had another student that I spoke to I. So I think really getting those references from other people. Also some research, there's a lot of people now that have contacts with teachers all over Italy, and then you move in and you just how many hours a day or a week where he works. So I did I did about four to six hours a day, but I ate breakfast lunch and dinner with that family our table with ALFRESCO. Semi my classroom was Tuscany alfresco outside as living it. I was I was all those things that I needed to learn. My teacher was right there. So so it's it's a lot of work I I've never bothered I I have. A great time in Italy why would you spend all the time and money learning the language I'd love connecting with the culture I mean I think just to be able to move in and really not only did I. Learn the language I learned the culture I said at that table every day and for me that makes travel so much more real. So that is it. If the bottom line, the bottom line is not speaking the language, but it's connecting with the culture and with the language it's like you've got better vision. Exactly. You've done this also in Costa Rica and. Those are two different. Spanish. Speaking Countries. How does your choice of a destination? Impact, the learning that you have and what you come away with because Costa Rica and Nicaragua you went to both of them and you were trying to learn Spanish Why would you go to one rather than the other for me? It was based on what I wanted to see as well. I had some travel goals to for people. I. Think it's often going to depend on what part of the world you WANNA. See a said oftentimes that's the case also, you have to think about what kind of language you WanNa come away with if you went. Back to learn French and then you go to France, they're gonNA look at you like where are you from? Exactly so that's one of the reasons I chose not to study in Sicily obviously Naples I want to for me 'cause you don't WanNa, go around the world speaking. In, Tuscany, the kind of Italian. That I want to come away with what they're speaking there.

Ex-adviser to first lady: Working for Trumps was a 'mistake'
"This is from page. One eleven of Stephanie. Winston coughs. New Book Melanie and me thirty five days before the inaugural. She says back in New York. I attended a meeting with president-elect trump in his office. The space was packed with. Boxes Trinkets and piles of paper and I thought I was a hoarder his office looked like a garage sale. Stephanie Donald, said tell me, what's going on with the inauguration planning Ivanka joined. Donald than me for the meeting I presented to the two of them. I grabbed my binder over to Donald Side of the desk and sat with my knees on the floor. He sat in his red leather chair leaning back clasping his hands ready for me to proceed Ivanka hovered over me. I. Went through hundreds of pages covering all eighteen events Ivanka made comments and ask questions will there be a red carpet. Where do we walk during the prayed? What about seeding at the swearing in after party? After the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue? Donald said quote I don't want floats. I said, okay. The president continued quote I want tanks and choppers make it look like North Korea There was no way. He really wanted goosestepping troops and armored tanks that would break tradition and terrify half the country. When he vodka North Korea she didn't Bat Ni-. I walked out of the meeting ruffled and worried. I texted close friend and colleague quote. North. Korea style military parade. Bad idea. That's just one of the anecdotes written in the new book by Stephanie Winston walk-off Cough farmer friend an adviser to first lady Melania trump smoke off. Of course, also played a key role in organizing the trump inauguration and twenty seventeen that has led to so much consternation and so much legal trouble ever since she has written the most detailed account of all of this in her new book, New Book called Milania and me the rise and fall of my friendship with the first lady joining us. Now for the interview is Stephanie Winston Will. Cough Miss walk-off I really appreciate the the trust it takes to be here I know you could be anywhere talking about this. Thank you for being here. And thank you for having me so much Rachel really. So that wouldn't rather be anywhere. Else Else I you to say that. Obviously there's a there's a lot here. There's a lot that's very raw here particularly about the distress. About the dissolution of your friendship with the First Lady of circumstances under which he left the white. House. I want to talk first of all though about something what you describe about the inaugural, which is really never been publicly described by anybody involved in it before you're pretty frank about the idea that there's a lot of missing money unaccounted for money in terms of what was raised for the inaugural versus what was spent. Do you feel like you have a general grasp how much money that might be do you have a theory or any knowledge of where it might have gone? Well I do know that at the time that I questioned where the money was going or how much everything costs I was asked to not attending meetings. So. It took me a few years to figure everything out. But it's just you know. People need to just follow the money. In terms of who is following the money it's remarkable that you describe the the difficulty and the decision that you made to cooperate with these multiple ongoing investigations including the Attorney General and. Having received a subpoena from Southern District of New York I know that those are ongoing proceedings and you're limited what you can say but do you feel like the people who are investigating this at various levels? Know what happened to the money? Do you feel like the investigations are on the right track in terms of them, figuring out what happened to these millions of unaccounted for dollars? Unfortunately with our Justice Department right now, I don't really know entirely what's going on, but some of these investigations and that's really sad and challenging place to be especially since this elections right around the corner. I do know that Joan Cari scene is still estimating is still open but as far as the southern district, I don't know where that stands as well as the intelligence May. Have you been has the White House contact you since your book was on track to publish since people started to realize what was going to going to be in this book has the Justice Department or the White House anybody else in the trump administration contacted you. I've actually been contacted by both the White House and the. The Justice Department. Can you tell us anything about either those communications for starting with the White House in terms of what they, what they wanted to communicate to you or what they asked if you? A couple of months I had to cease and desist as well as. Again, the last thing that any of these people want is for the truth to be told. I have lived with this shoulders for the last several years trying to make sense of it all trying to understand what happened. While I was working at the inauguration, but also what happened? While pressure fielding amounting around. Your nine ninety and releasing of where hundreds of million dollars was spent. This is you know it's like Donald Trump is the best game three Card Monte, right? It's like. Everything's a shell and everything's going in different directions chaos is just part of the game. As you said earlier I love it. You know only the best and Quite, a bit quite a bit of the best. You drive in, cow. Sorry didn't mean to interrupt. Please carry on. No No. Politics. This delays very awkward. The satellite delays made all the worse by all. Kofi driven Gremlins in terms of remote studio. So that was my fault. I'm sorry. Let let me just ask you first of all to go back and say whatever you wanted to finish in terms here thought there and I'll just ask another question which is If. The White House was telling the truth when they put out public statements denying that first lady, Melania trump, and the president had no role in planning the inaugural and that the when the White House when the White House said, they didn't know about any concerns about budgeting or how much things would cost or how things would be carried out during the inaugural. Your book would seem to give lie to those statements and make clear that the when the White House said those things that those aren't accurate. The machine of the false narratives that gets created by the White House is so overwhelming and so. Powerful and the fact that people really believed when you look around of the people that were actually involved in planning inaugurations if they're gonNA, pin it on me, is that was Milan. His friend. Works Right. Right in the quarter Malaga's friends the only person willing to help her and. You that's fight light show right on me without in calling me and asking me if it was So my integrity, my reputation everything was destroyed in a matter of seconds and. It was as if no big deal just flip, often move on. And I wasn't prepared to do that have I didn't feel sorry. Having the opportunity to tell your side of the story and to explain what happened during the inaugural to explain even what you could tell was happening with the financials of the inaugural being able to put in this book. Does it make you feel. Not I guess not protected in any way but at least does it make you feel like you're in a stronger position because at least now, you can articulate what you saw where you came from and what your side of it feels like a lot of the frustration that led to this book is feeling that you weren't allowed to defend yourself. And I'm still relying on First Person Council I'm still not allowed to say everything so I'm saying as much as I can within the law I. Think that being muzzled with an NDA for all these years it has been Ostra phobic to say the least I stopped living regular life by a free children a husband I really I sort of locked myself in. And it's amazing to me that I'm part of the three different investigations yet I'm witnessed all of them and it. It really is a raid of Shenanigans and I feel that the trump presidency is just leasing our country and I had no choice to not tell the story. I had to be here. Do I feel protected? I actually do feel more protected because now everyone knows the truth. and. I've been able to share my life story with what happened because it took over my life and. Am I you know. It's complicated.

In nineteen, eighty, five, thirty, one year, old anti called activist Monte Kim. Miller established brand new church called the concerned. Christians alongside preaching. He was an outspoken activist against cults, his thriving flock singlehandedly disrupted conversations about traditional faiths and. Christianity in America Montes, fiery rhetoric garnered him massive attention, and he loved it in response. Monte started leading campaigns against movements. He deemed to be perverse or to new age. He challenged the practices of all kinds of churches. He also found fault in connections to God and offended the priests who helped him build his reputation Montes power over his assembly grew all the time and became more and more insular. Missing on the sins of other congregations, Monte shielded the sacked from its own flaws. The more he spoke publicly the more egotistical. He became Dr John Modell wrote about this in his article. Why Pride is nothing to be proud of he said, we look for others flaws as a way to conceal our own. We relish criticizing others as a defense against recognizing our own shortcomings. This rotten hubris dissolved any semblance of self awareness in Monte or his congregants. They played up their supremacy and denigrated their neighbor churches to no end. Monte explained the world outside of his congregation was Satan's wasteland the more enemies for his congregation. Congregation. The closer the members had to cling to him in an effort to strengthen the bond with his flock and gained notoriety. He started a new bimonthly newsletter called report from concerned Christians. The paper focused on strange topics like the harmonic convergence of nineteen eighty seven. This cosmological event was expected to occur after a worldwide guided meditation people around the globe would prey the very same prayer at the very same time. The convergence was supposed to coincide with a rare positioning of planets fulfil a widely accepted prophecy and introduce humanity to a new era of peace. When the prophecy failed Monte blamed the impure congregations, of churches. In the subsequent years, Monte all but abandoned the teachings of Traditional Christianity. It became a point of pride that he hadn't grown up religious and had never undergone officials spiritual training to him. This proved pure connection with God and authentic one that made him superior to other men of the cloth. The Lord chose him a common man as a spiritual conduit, rather than a scholar or an educated priest. In the late nineteen eighties. His religious focus veered even further away from its foundations.

Monte continued to ribbon to organized. Christianity to according to some reports, he constantly denounced Americans for worshiping the false idol of the American Flag Monte claimed patriotism was a betrayal of God and his truths he said that American. Ideals represent earthly and unbuilt pursuits. These ideas weren't unusual among fundamentalists. They just seem to completely contradict his initial anti-cult activism but. But. His most extreme opinions always elicited excited debate and attention, which was why he was attracted to bizarre ideas to Monte. All attention was good attention. So he peddled controversial notions. For instance, he claimed there would be no grace for anyone because the Christian, church has married the Hor-. America, and anyone involved with the Church was going to hell. Monte. Even said that God interpreted the pledge of allegiance as spiritual adultery, the in his book, the end of days, fundamentalism and the struggle. Struggle for the Temple Mount Gary. Gordon Berg wrote that Monte felt the fourth of July was a pagan festival and a tip off to America's roots in Satanic. freemasonry. Monte castigated several Christian organisations for rejecting God's plan and endorsing the apostate churches plan for the Kingdom. He also claimed that the Christian right was behind the evil saturating. The United States preachers, he wants engaged started to refuse his request to talk and the public began to push back against his outlandish claims to. Increasingly under fire. Monte isolated himself and demanded that as believers do the same, he asked them to leave their family homes and live with other disciples. Some Concern Christians moved in together. Others simply avoided family cut off friends. This wasn't much of a surprise as most of Monte. Kim's devotees did what he asked of them whenever he asked anything. Call tracker built Hans, Burgers of this dynamic. If Kim says lie they lie. If Kim says, steal. Day. Steal by that point, Monte had trained his disciples to fall in line. No matter what he said for years, the Church had denounced the act of channeling spirits. But in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, thirty, four, year, old monty began claiming he was now in direct communication with God in the coming years, his supposed contact with the Lord deepened. He eventually even purported to have the power to channel the Holy Spirit. This was exactly the act he condemned in others, but he'd already established. He could follow an extraordinary set of rules. So his followers believed him. Always seeking the spotlight monty was eager to share this news publicly in the mid nineteen. Ninety s when interviewed on Denver's K. USA, TV news. He said, God. Speaks through my mouth. Yeah. He just tells people like I guess. Old? Testament.

He called it our foundation. On Air, Monte emphasized how spiritual rebirth would lead one to return life. He insisted true believers transform themselves by becoming meek and discarding their own egos. They could make room, for Christ, to inhabit their bodies. Monte wanted them to shrink their selves.

"By the year two thousand the the FBI had figured out the Cubans had a mole in the US government. And thanks to the decrypted messages. They had a few details about this person's sounds identity they knew the double agent was a high ranking official in intelligence they also knew of this person's travel history and they suspected did that he or she had a computer like the ones used by the WASPA- network this admittedly wasn't much to go on but for dia a counterintelligence investigators Scott Carmichael. It was enough by now. Four years had passed since he'd accused of being a spy the moment her name popped up as a potential double agent suspect he was convinced he'd been right all along on November number. Twenty seven th two thousand Scott requested permission to launch a full investigation into Anna Montas in coordination with the FBI. Hi this would be a long and delicate process but Scott was determined to see it through the Queen of Cuba would not escape him him this time as Scott and the F. B. I.. Launched Their investigation ANA was preparing to embark on her next professional journey. As as well she had just been accepted to a prestigious research fellowship at the National Intelligence Council located at C. I. A. Headquarters in Washington intesne. DC In this position. She would have access to more classified information than ever before. As soon as Scott I heard the news of honors pending job. Change his sense of urgency spiked. Not only was. He worried about the secrets she might share with the Cubans but he also feared that if she left the dia the investigation might be dropped. Scott's authority only extended to agency employees he he had to delay her reassignment long enough to get the evidence the F. B. I.. Needed to open a broad scale investigation Scott Coordinated Hawarden aided with his team at a few select higher ups to devise various pretexts for putting off on a start date ANA frustrated. Aided but not yet suspicious went back to life as usual. She stuck to her schedule at work and home. Investigators tailed her for the months without seeing a thing even a thorough search of her apartment turned up no incriminating evidence. The Queen of Cuba so good at covering her tracks that after nine months of Investigation Scott began to wonder if he'd made a mistake but his the team had one play left. ANA had a tote bag that she carried with her everywhere may be the reason why she kept it. So close was that it contained her spycraft materials. That seemed like a long shot but after almost a year of fruitless investigation it was all Scott Right and his team members had left on August sixteenth. Two thousand one forty four year old on. I entered her cubicle at eight eight. Am just like always. She placed her tote bag on the corner of her desk like usual then at ten. AM Some supervisors calder into a conference room. While they kept her occupied Scott and a few others slipped into on his cubicle and conducted a quick and stealthy stealthy search. They found a single slip of paper with handwritten codes that on a used to send messages by payphone. It wasn't much but it was enough using the decryption software. The FBI had confiscated from the WASP network. Investigators is decoded the numbers and determined. That ANA was definitely working with the Cubans. Scott it was exultant but he still wasn't satisfied. He now knew that had been betraying her country for years. He wanted to approve exactly what services she provided to the Cubans. The only way to do that was to allow on it to continue spying until they managed to catch her in the act with this plan in mind Scott had his team put everything back right where they found it so went on a return turned to her cubicle. She saw nothing amiss. She simply carried on with her day and went home at the usual time. In other circumstances ANA might have continued her undercover work for months or even years before Scott's team made their final move but September eleventh two thousand one change the trajectory of her and many other Americans lives forever. The nine eleven terrorist attacks were shocked the world and perhaps above all to the intelligence community. Who couldn't believe leave? They didn't see it coming. Scott Carmichael saw the smoke from his lower floor office at the Dia that morning but ANA had had a better view from the top story of the building. She saw dark clouds billowing from the Pentagon and from her years of experience she probably knew. This didn't bode well for her. The attack represented a horrific failure on the part of the intelligence community agencies. Sees would soon be cracking down. Which meant ANA would be an investigator sites yet again? Perhaps that's why. She went on on alert within the next few days. She suspected that she was being followed. She wasn't sure by whom but she sensed it was only a matter of time before four. They made their move as the smoke cleared on the. US prepared for war. Ana was once again faced with the decision. She could flee use her fake passports to make her way into Cuba to safety among her friends or she could stay and keep fighting for the cause. 'cause she'd chosen ten years ago even at the cost of her own life the mere fact that she considered continuing continuing under these circumstances suggest that Anna may have suffered from a martyr complex. According to psychologist Dr Ursula sandner mergers mergers are typically willing to sacrifice anything for others. They tend to feel that if no one needs them they have no value and they often exaggerate their importance in group efforts believing that if they were to stop participating the endeavor would fall apart given these qualities ladies and her past behavior. It's not surprising that ANA decided to stay. She later said she didn't WanNa give up on the people she was helping but chances this is our she couldn't bear to think they might be all right without her. On September twenty first two thousand one Ana arrived at her office and started work as usual but at ten fifteen. Am She got a call from a supervisor saying that there was a problem with one of her subordinates. Ordinance he didn't have time to deal with it so he needed on to come down to the office and take care of it for him on. A readily complied when she reached the office however she didn't find a beleaguered colleague instead she found two members of Scott Carr Michael's investigative of team. She was under arrest like always ana kept her cool. She claimed her right to remain silent and asked for or legal counsel. A female officers searched her and then the team let her out of the building in handcuffs on was so quiet that most of her colleagues didn't even look up as she went by word of the arrests. Got Out soon enough. Within a few months Cuban officials began to acknowledge the loss of one of their greatest intelligence assets. Although Fidel Castro himself made no public comments laments Foreign Minister Felipe Perez. Roque wrote an email. I feel deep respect and admiration for Ana Belen Montanez. She acted compelled by ethics and an admirable sense of justice in the United States. However many of those who knew Ana were were devastated her coworkers were shocked to learn that the Dia Star was actually a hardened criminal? Her Siblings Lucy A. and Tito were humiliated by the revelation that their own sister was a traitor. They feared they'd lose their jobs at the FBI. Fortunately Senate lead. This didn't happen but to ANA it didn't seem to matter either way. She didn't apologize for her actions nor did she feign innocence since she simply said about handling her arrest with the same precision as her double life. She hired the same top up notch. Attorney who had defended. CIA Spy Aldrich Ames fifteen years before the lawyer worked out a deal. ANA would plead guilty feet to one count of conspiracy to commit espionage and serve a twenty five year sentence in the fall of two thousand. Two the forty-five-year-old Queen of Cuba was officially deposed but in her sentencing on October sixteenth on a spoke defiantly in in defense of her crimes. She said I engaged in the activity. That brought me before you because I obeyed my conscience rather than the law. Aw I did what I thought right to counter a grave injustice in the eyes of many this is exactly what makes on on a montage as such a dangerous criminal more than fifteen years have passed since she was escorted to a federal prison but ANA has has yet to express remorse for betraying her country. She scheduled for release in two thousand twenty three as for what Ana will do with her freedom. Only time and very close observation will tell.

She resolved to do everything she could to protect the oppressed. Even if that meant committing treason he said this week. We'll see how on I embarked on dual careers as an undercover Cuban intelligence agent and a superstar analyst in the the US Department of Defense will discuss how on his own sister secured key evidence that eventually put the FBI on her trail as as investigators closed in on a had to decide whether to run or to go down. Fighting Ana Belen Montas began her career with the Defense Intelligence Agency or DIA on September birth thirtieth nineteen eighty five. She was hired. As a researcher justice she had in previous occupations. The twenty eight year old quickly impressed asked her superiors within months. She was promoted to intelligence analyst specializing in El Salvador and Nicaragua in this position. Shen on a reviewed information about these countries from field agents law enforcement and other sources she would then make recommendations to policy makers and military officials based on her analysis of the intelligence. The work itself was mentally demanding. Attempting to spy for the Cubans wins on top of. It was extremely risky. If ANA was caught she could be arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit espionage or or even treason but the twenty eight year old. Didn't hesitate to dive in. She was convinced that with organization and discipline she'd be able to handle it on a started her double life by establishing a routine one that she followed religiously for the next sixteen years on a typical day. She woke up early and commuted from her. Two Bedroom. CO-OP in the Cleveland Park neighborhood of Washington. DC to her office at the DIA. She arrived in her cubicle at eight. Am Sat down and immediately went to work. She spent the next several hours analyzing data writing reports and attending meetings then. She broke for a quick lunch. Usually she grabbed a salad or soup from the office cafeteria and took it back to her cubicle. There she kept working until around five PM at which point she went home. Rarely stopping to chat with anyone on her way out on his machine. Like habits and apparent disinterest in socializing soon made an impression on her colleagues some thought she was just too focused on work to think about anything else. Others considered her arrogant and standoffish. But there was more going on beneath the surface than on us. New Co workers realized. She'd you've been dedicated to working hard her entire life yet. She'd also found time in the past to make friends now. She couldn't do that without putting her permission or herself. At risk before we delve into honors psychology. Please note that I'm not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. kyw interest but I have done a lot of research for the show in an article on the mental impacts of undercover operations psychologist. Dr Laurence Miller are noted double agents knowingly and purposefully develop relationships that they will eventually betray many officers. Find this the difficult road to walk adding to the stressors of undercover work. Miller's comments were about agents working on the right side of the law but it's likely that ANA experienced similar inner conflicts. She may have decided to cut people out of her life simply to reduce the anxiety of having to align to those she cared about at the very least having no social life helped on a perform her secret job without interruptions each night when she got home from work she retyped the classified documents she'd memorized in the office that day on a computer computer provided by Cuban intelligence she then saved the files on floppy disks. which could be easily slipped into her tote bag and delivered to to her handlers later once she was finished with the documents on turned on shortwave radio she'd purchased at a local electronics store? She tune the radio two am frequencies seven eight eight seven kilohertz and waited. At first. She got nothing but static then in the middle of the night when most of the city was asleep on a heard a woman's voice fade in. The speaker rattled off a list of one hundred fifty apparently random numbers which on a promptly keyed into her computer later once the transmission ended on Arena preinstalled decryption program in a flash. The sequence was converted into a secret message just for her. This made all the intervening hours of loneliness worthwhile. Although Cuban intelligence didn't pay on for her services as they made her feel important they allowed her to choose what information to give them as well as when and where she deliver it most most importantly they treated her like valued member of the team for ANA who grew up in a home where her father's word was law being part of a collaborative collaborative effort was highly gratifying and according to psychologist Ursula 'em wilder that may have been exactly what her handlers intended handed in her essay. The psychology of espionage doctor wilder states that spy recruiters are trained to see weakness weakness in people who have access to valuable information. She explained agents spotting a vulnerable person may insinuate themselves into the situation Jewish and exacerbate the personal crisis handlers will then continue to manipulate. A recruited assets vulnerabilities to maintain maintain the person's long-term engagement in espionage intentionally or not the Cubans encouragement gave the inspiration. She needed needed to accomplish extremely difficult. Things from nineteen eighty six to one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. The young analyst was promoted half a dozen sometimes. She received multiple awards for her distinguished service and was entrusted with more and more complex jobs. Colleagues and supervisors. There's throughout the intelligence community regarded her as a leading expert in Latin American political affairs in her secret life Ana was is also highly regarded but due to the covert nature of her work. It's hard to say exactly what she accomplished. As a spy. However a development lament Nicaragua during her fifth year in action suggests a clue honest? Primary goal was always to help the Nicaraguan in people control their own destiny in nineteen ninety the nation democratically elected a new president apparently without influence from the US S.. We don't know for sure if the information that unprovided helped bring about this long-awaited change but we do know it. Brought the country's civil a war to an end leaving thirty-three-year-old Ana at a major crossroads her mission as she knew it was now over and that meant she had a choice to make she could either go straight putting an end to this risky detour in her career or she could find a new objective objective thereby recommitting herself to a life of crime for some. This might have been a tough decision but ANA barely even hesitated. She knew the. US had political objectives for Cuba and considered them a threat to the island's sovereignty. Just like she had had for Nicaragua on a now dedicated her life to protecting the smaller country from its bullying northern neighbor in nineteen ninety. The two thirty five year old ANA was accepted to a program that allowed her to study a project of her choice on the government's dime. She used it as an an opportunity to travel legally to Cuba. She spent twelve months in the nation. She was secretly working for aside in February of Nineteen Ninety. Three her new expertise earned her yet. Another promotion to the head of the DA's Cuban account in this position. Asian Montana's yielded tremendous influence over. US policy toward the island.

"Eventually early on I did. What just about any other twenty-something with big earnings would do in this situation? She went back to school in September Moore of nineteen eighty to twenty five year old ANA enrolled in a graduate program at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University for the next two two years while working. Full time at the DOJ ANA also attended classes toward a master's degree in advanced international studies as she decided to focus on Nicaragua a small Central American country in which the US currently had major interests. It's back in nineteen seventy nine. The year after on a graduated from college. The civil war in Nicaragua came to a dramatic climax axe after more than a decade spent fighting military dictator. Honest Assia Somoza the Sandinistas. A group of left-wing rebels manage to drive him out of power on a considered this a victory for the Nicaraguan people and as far as she was concerned the Sandinistas. This were heroes. But the United States government disagreed the Reagan administration strongly opposed the Sandinistas Communist politics techs and they used various tactics including illegal arm sales to try to remove the Sandinistas from power. As FARZANA was concerned. This was bullying pure and simple. She was incensed at her country's decision to meddle in another nation's war not to protect the helpless but to advance its own interests and she wanted everyone to know how she felt about it during her years at Johns Hopkins honest spoke out against. US policy decisions on Nicaragua. She wrote papers. This gave speeches and joined protests on behalf of the Sandinistas despite the fact that neither she nor her ancestors were Nicaraguan and on a took up the cause of the oppressed just as she had when she wants wanted to defend her helpless siblings against her father. Other however in May of Nineteen eighty-four the twenty seven year old activist was temporarily sidelined by some frustrating news from from the university. Despite all odds working a fulltime job ANA had completed her coursework at Johns Hopkins but she was unable able to pay off the last few thousand dollars that she owed for tuition as a result. Johns Hopkins was refusing to grant her a degree agree to a hard working and passionate advocate of the people. This too must have felt like an abuse of power after all on ahead already paid tens of thousands of dollars to the university clearly. They didn't need the money in her view. It was just one more example of the powerful taking advantage of the week on. Oh wasn't having it. Instead of bowing to Johns Hopkins. She simply blew them off. She began applying for jobs in the summer of Nineteen eighty-four stating that. She had a a master's degree. Technically this was untrue but as far as ANA was concerned the lie was completely justified. mm-hmm while she was busy looking for her next move on a met fellow Grad student. Marta Rita Velazquez Twenty six-year-old old. Marta had heard on a speak about Nicaragua and was impressed by her views. She had some friends who needed help. Translating Nicaraguan News articles goals from Spanish to English and she wondered if ANA was willing to help ANA readily agreed. She started meeting up with Marta regularly. Clearly chatting about the many things the two women had in common they shared Puerto Rican roots both held government positions. Marta worked for the US Department of Transportation as an attorney advisor and both were passionately interested in Latin American politics with with a strong dislike of American foreign policy given how well the two women clicked. It's no wonder that ANA agreed to accompany company. Marta to New York City to meet a friend for dinner in December of Nineteen eighty-four and it's also not surprising that ANA trusted at this acquaintance of martyrs implicitly. What did come as a shock to on at least was that the person she met that evening wasn't a friend of Martinez at all? He introduced himself as an officer of the Cuban Intelligence Service. Marta revealed that she was actually Salihi a recruiter for the agency and they wanted to engage ANA as a Cuban spy coming up. We'll see how the hard working straight laced on a Montanez trained to become a secret secret agent for Fidel Castro's regime now back to the story in December of Nineteen eighty-four. See Four twenty seven year. Old Ana Belen Montanez agreed to travel with her friend. Marta Velazquez to New York City to meet a friend end for dinner when they arrived however the man introduced himself to honor as an officer of Cuban intelligence over the course of a quiet quiet dinner the official convinced Ana she had a role to play on the international stage with her education. Work Ethic and high level security clearance. She could gain access to top secret information. And if she shared that information with the Cubans they could use. Is it to assist the disadvantaged people on cared so much about the Nicaraguans. This may sound like a bit of a stretch to the average urged listener but to ana it made perfect sense. She knew the Cubans supported the Sandinistas and they also had a history of standing up to the very people on a saw. Pushing the Nicaraguans around the United States government back in Nineteen fifty nine communist Revolutionary Fidel Castro toppled brutal us-backed dictator and Cuba in response. The Americans Americans had tried everything they could think of to remove the Communist Castro from power. They had even attempted to assassinate the leader by using poison pills and exploding cigars. When those and similar efforts failed the United States cut off all diplomatic and economic nommik ties with the island their intention was to isolate the Cubans until their need for outside help became so great that they would rise is up and overthrow Castro themselves? It didn't work twenty five years later. Fidel Castro was still president student of Cuba and to ANA that made him and his people heroes. She said Yes to the unpaid offer that very night. In December of nineteen eighty four Ana Montes who had never been to Cuba volunteered to become mm-hmm a Cuban spy it must have been strange for the twenty-seven-year-old to spend the holidays with her family that year. She just verbally committed to become an undercover agent. Putting her life on the line for people she'd never met. It may have been tempting to share her secret with the siblings. She'd once failed to protect but on a new that of all people her family must be the last to know about out her decision after all as an agent for a Foreign Government Ana and her family were now on opposite sides of the law coincidentally both on a sister Lucy and her brother Tito were embarking on new careers with the FBI. Lucy he was a language analyst in the Miami Office which meant that she monitored conversations of Spanish speakers under investigation. Ironically this included the large number of Cubans the very people with whom Ana had just aligned herself. The fledgling spy must have realized that to meet need her commitment. She was going to have to cut herself off from the world. Family friends and lovers would all have to be kept at arm's length. From this point forward honest number one focus would be her mission. It's important to note that. Despite her intentions ANA had no control over how the intelligence she provided would be used and though her goal may have been to help the Nicaraguans the Cubans could well have had other plans in mind after all her years studying foreign affairs and working for the Department of Justice on should have known this but if so she chose to overlook it a fact which suggests she had strong emotional mel reasons for becoming a spy. According to Dr Ursula am wilder there are typically three motivating factors behind a person's choice to commit espionage dysfunctions in the personality a state of crisis and ease of opportunity spies frequently gently have pathological features that pave the way to espionage such as thrill seeking a sense of entitlement or a desire for power and control troll at the time here. She initiates the espionage. It appears the logical decision to solve a problem. Ana had had been banging her head against the problem of how to stop the US from bullying other countries for years and after her turbulent childhood she certainly may have felt a need for control. Perhaps these two factors were so overwhelming that they caused honor to overlook the reality that she was committing a crime for people. She didn't really know. Of course. Deciding to spy is only the first step and honest still had a a long way to go. After the holidays she went back to work at the DOJ her attention divided between her job and thoughts of her undercover cover. Future and as the New Year unfolded. She made plans with Marta to go to Cuba for training. This was easier said than done done back in one thousand nine hundred five travel between the. US and Cuba.

"Thirteen. It was the spring of nineteen eighty four and Johns Hopkins Graduate Student and Ana Belen Montanez was under the gun despite working full time for the. US Department of Justice Ana was unable to pay off her tuition wishes fees as a result. The university was now threatening to hold her degree hostage. And as if school work and money problems weren't enough the twenty-seven-year-old Grad student had world affairs weighing on her mind. She was worried about the war in Nicaragua. Leftist revolutionaries there were under attack by anticommunist. CONTRAS backed by her own country's government ANA was furious at the US for intervening in Nicaragua in her view. America didn't care about helping the people they were simply there to promote their Own Interests and as a result innocent Nicaraguans were dying for months on had been speaking out on the problem in class and writing about it in academic papers but nothing changed between her country's refusal to back off the Nicaraguans and her schools schools insistence on withholding her degree it seemed to the beleaguered student that bullies always got their way but then one day ANA was approached by a fellow student. Martyr Rita of Alaska's. Marta hurt on a speaking on. US policy let's see in Nicaragua and felt they had a lot in common. She asked Ana if she would be willing to meet a few friends who needed help. Translating News articles from Spanish to English ANA readily agreed. She was eager for an opportunity to help the less fortunate but as it turned turned out. Marta so called friends were actually Cuban intelligence and they had a much bigger job for ANA in mind..

"I'm your host Dana Montes of real food with sina. I'm a nutritionist and body image. Coach teaching women how to heal their relationship with booth in their bodies ditch the die cycle for good and truly thrive with real food one delicious meal at a time. Good morning, friends, or honestly, whatever time you listen to this podcast that it currently happens to be while. You're listening today. We have a very intriguing episode. I guess you could say we're taking a long hard look about what we believe about ourselves and why so, yeah, this one is going to be a little bit of a deep one. So today's interview is with Amy Smith, who, as a self-proclaimed SAS life coach who specializes in all things confidence, who helps aspiring bad SS, stand up for themselves without being assholes. So yeah, you guessed it. There is some swearing in this episode. So if you don't appreciate it, you might not like this episode. However, I know that you probably will like the content. So what Amy is trying to tell all of her clients, and everyone that she speaks, you is that it's time to let go of all of the people pleasing and, cultivate, some serious self worth in the meat of this episode. We are talking about the fear. Of not belonging of people pleasing and why it's so detrimental to our mental and physical health our beliefs about worthiness, and how they drive our behaviors constant comparison and perfectionism and basically, all of the things this is kind of like Bernie Brown type episode. If I can call it that this is the type of episode where if you're anything like me, you'll want to listen once, and then probably listen again, and maybe take some notes and do some serious thinking about your life, and how these things we're talking about have played out in your own life because that's exactly what I did. And by the way, yes, again, if you don't like cursing, you probably won't like this episode, but there are knowledge bombs sprinkled into this episode. No, not sprinkled into this episode. It's like a waterfall of knowledge, bombs about beliefs about yourself and worthiness, and the fear of not belonging n people pleasing and perfectionism and all the things and I know you guys are gonna love it. I would love if you could. Well, introduce yourself to the listeners and then also tell us more about your personal health, journey specifically about confidence and boundaries. And how you even learned about what those concepts were in the first place. Oh man. While I love first of all, that, you, you incorporate the health piece, because I think a lot of times we don't realize that some of the reasons why we have a stomach ulcer might be because of our relationship with their mother over, we don't a lot of times, we like to compartmentalize our internal narrative, and what's happening with us versus our external body, our health, it's very much tied together, so mice nation is I'm assuming that there are many people out there who can very much relate, so a bit of context that grew up in extremely conservative born again, Christian family and my father had a masters. Divinity and a doctorate in ministry. So I mean we were fucking around over there. And so I grew up with a lot of dogma around, what was right and wrong and just a lot of motivation from fear and guilt. And a lot of shame. And there was a lot of kind of why am I apart of this family? Gosh, you know, I'm disag- Centric kind of wild hearted child who just would love to have been in a hippie commune in here. I am you know, the total bible, thumper. And I'm like, what, how did they warn into this fan? So fast forward, probably I dunno almost three three decades and I had the I, I guess I should say fortune, and misfortune to lose my father in os seven and I say fortune just because it really was one of the most beautifully intimate experiences to be with somebody as they passed. And so the day of my father's service, I had. A very rich career in a makeup artistry at the time. So I knew without a shadow of adult that a I was going to speak at the service and B I was gonna do his makeup, the actual mortuary makeup for his deceased body. So here I am thinking I'm daughter of the year award. I'm speaking to this crowd of hundreds and I'm doing makeup on my father, and my mom later, that day found it the most opportune time to say that she felt that that my father and heard failed and that because the three of us myself and my two siblings. My two brothers weren't quote walking with the Lord, now another bit of context. I was I was by all context. The good child, I had started working since I was fourteen I worked in a company that paid for my tuition, I paid for all my college myself got married. When I was young moved out both my brothers did jail time. I mean, it was sort of this. How the hell can you want me in and say, like your children are disappointments? And the only thing that I could really muster kind of in that moment was to say, well, you probably shouldn't say that to child, and she kind of just well that's just how I feel. In that I think was kind of impetus for me to realize that there were going to be costs to actually standing up for myself, and there would be a cost. Conversely, of not standing up for myself. And what that meant was, I was gonna have to choose between making them happy or making me happy. And when it came down to that I chose me and the trajectory thereafter was extremely combative adversary oil when I kind of found my- flooding and was like, no, this is who I'm about, I'm, I'm a liberal, and I met, you know, I love free lab. And I'm you know all these things. And it kind of came out of the Christian closet, so to speak. I or the agnostic closet, I guess, my, my relationship with my mom became extremely combative. And I just I wanted to talk about all the things let's talk about abortion. Let's talk about gay rights. Let's talk about, but let me just take you to school on all these things, and it wasn't until having some blowout fights in and being so incredibly embarrassed of my behavior in realizing that there's a different way to communicate that I kind of stumbled upon what I what I teach now which is, this dichotomy of you can speak up for yourself. You can be incredibly assertive, but you can also be extremely kind in loving and compassionate at the same time. But I'm sure you see this to a lot of times in our society. It's a we'd want to get anything done. You must dawn the masculine, and you must be aggressive in better not ever be vulnerable and got. So that, that. Kind of has been what has led me to doing the work that I do now. Which is twofold, it's knowing internally, that, who you are matters, that your voice matters, your wants your opinions your needs all matter. And then the external piece of okay, we'll know how does that relate to actually communicating with people in my life? What does it sound like to establish a boundary with my inlaws Sangley, please? Don't see my kid, hyper riposte corn syrup, or please don't take them to the church that I don't believe in, or hey spouse, I actually think I want a divorce a quarter of the things that you say in these really tumultuous polarizing situations. So that's, that's kind of what I do in my little corner of the internet. Yeah. So that is so cool. And so how tell me about that, like transition period when you're having all this strife with your family and stuff. And then you kind of had this like a Pitney of this is how I'm gonna stand up for myself. How did you then transition to? Okay. This is working really well for me, and I'm able to live my best life. How did you then start working with people on how to coach them through that? Well, what's interesting? It was kind of harmony us because when I first started my coaching practice with which was well over ten years ago. Now, I went to coaching school in the mid two thousand so it's it's been a minute, and I originally was all things relationships. So it was generally how to make marriage work. What was my kind of Nisha at the time and what I was noticing in my work as I was focusing primarily on relationships, though. A lot of women were lacking in the belief. In who they were a lot around this self worse Pierce, a lot around at forgiving themselves or forgiving. Other people letting go blame so that they could find a more strong footing in their relationship. And so instead of really focusing on this symptom of a need to get through to my spouse, or need to fix my communication. I kinda went back to the basics. We started unearthing a lot of this stuff around self worth. So then in twenty fifteen I went through total rebrand, and I kinda started looking at this, and then building on a lot of the things that I was working through in my own life. I kind of went oh here's this is my sweet spot. It is not just finding your voice, but also how to use it how to broach boundaries saying no in having this demand ticks in the actual scripts, the it kind of happened as a gradual evolution, I would say, and I ended up going back and looking through. True path client notes in, you know what are the things that you most want to get out of things in that was really helpful to me in figuring out. Okay. Here's my pen is on a genius. Yeah. That's awesome. And then where where did the name the joy junkie come from? Oh will that was one hundred percent like a business decision? My. Well, yes. Okay. Swell one was, I realized that in, I'm sure you can definitely attest to this with disordered eating, and things like that, that we are all addicted to something, it might be our smartphone. It might be counting calories. God forbid, it might be all of these various things I thought will what would shift for us, if we were equally as addicted to joy as we are to all these other vices that aren't actually bringing us any fulfillment or happiness. But another piece of it was going through trademark processes and things like that. I knew that very realistically. I would change my niche. So if I got involved in health coaching, let's say or if I got involved in physical, fitness, or became an accountant, I could still have joy junkie accounting. So part of it was was very much a business move. But then also talking about the outcome. You know what are we actually striving for when we want the perfect Creole when we want the perfect body, when we went the perfect business were actually just striving for an emotion. We think we're gonna feel we think it's going to bring freedom happiness fulfillment. So I thought why not really talk about the end result that we're all really looking for. Yeah. So talk about that. What are the biggest things that are standing in the way of people actually finding that joy? Oh my gosh. I would say, probably at least from my vantage, point, it is a heavy investment in what everybody else thinks it's that everybody else it, even a noble distraction like your child. Everybody else is once opinions in needs just are more important than mine, period. And that's how many women a disproportionately are raised to believe that self sacrifices noble in, in one of the things that I say, all the time is constantly, putting everybody in front of yourself is poison disguised as nobility, we think that it's so valiant and what it is is. It's martyrdom. And were not better. Parents were not better. Entrepreneurs were not better activists or artists were not better anything if we're depleted. But we're wired that way ends..

"I'm your host Dana Montes of real food with sina. I'm a nutritionist and body image. Coach teaching women how to heal their relationship with booth in their bodies ditch the die cycle for good and truly thrive with real food one delicious meal at a time. Hello, internet, and welcome back to episode seventy seven of the real talk with Dana podcast today. We have Caitlyn Higgins from nerdy nutritionist on the show. She is a new licensed nutritionist just finished grad school got her degrees, now she's a real person and all the things. Who is talking about her health journey with mysterious symptoms food, sensitivities intestinal permeability and how she figured out what the heck was going on with her body. We're also talking about her experience of disordered eating from starting with stuff like skipping meals and school binging, and purging, two more exit behaviors of doing multiple whole thirties in a row combined with sugar detox is an obsessing over steps on her Fitbit, and how she started to get out of those things were also talking about finding the middle ground during this podcast. So this is the kind of elusive no-man's land that exists for many people who are dealing with on the one hand, chronic health conditions that may necessitate a therapeutic diet or some kind of food restriction to prevent flare ups or some serious symptoms with autoimmune disease. So Caitlin has both Hashi motives, and ESPN Affleck is off Justice, which we're going to explain in the podcast. But at the same time these people. All also have a history of chronic dieting, maybe over exercising, or therapeutic behaviors all the way to disordered eating or eating disorders. This then becomes really tricky because not only is the complete trial and error process and a really hard space to get to this, like, elusive freedom or neutrality, or whatever you wanna call it, but it's going to look, so different for every single person depending on their background specific health issues or autoimmune conditions, the severity of your symptoms, etc. Right. And so that's one thing to keep in mind with these episode is I'm trying to have more people on the podcasts that fit this Bill of having deal dealt with both of these things. And now we're all trying to find what does this middle ground? Look like for different people. So no matter what Caitlyn or we talked about this with page when she was on the podcast to no matter what is working for them. Sure. That might work for you, but it also might look completely different. So I don't want you to take what any one person says, not only on this podcast on any other. Podcast or any other person that has this kind of experience just because that is the exact thing that's working for them, even if they do have a very similar background to you of say they have Hashi motos, and they also have this background of chronic dieting, or eating disorders, of where wherever it is, even though you have Mace, have some commonality with the symptoms that you're experiencing from the auto immune disease, or whatever it is. That doesn't mean that your general food guidelines are going to look the same even with those similarities in your health condition so little offhand topic there. But then with Caitlin stories specifically throw another massive debilitating wrench into the equation. If you have ever experienced some kind of trauma for Caitlin it was not only the stress of moving to a foreign country completely away from home and some bad breakup, but also losing her only sibling to opioid overdose. So we're chatting about how all of these things impacted her recovery. And also the most helpful resources that she used to help get through these tough times. Welcome to the podcast. So for people who have not met you before. Please introduce yourself a little bit. So you are a functional nutritionist and Rakia healer, I tell you not yourself and what that means. So I'm Caitlyn. Agains also known as be nerdy nutritionist. I recently earned my master's degree and functional nutrition from h like you and I just got my license son and my CNS. So I did. All those things and are real person. I am. Yes. Now, I can think all things. And then I also my first or my second year at age, I did level one Ricky healing. So I became certified as Ricky healer. And so what that means again. So Rakyat essentially, it was to healing practice that originated in Japan in the early nineteen hundreds and Ray means universal life force in key means essence of individual conflict Chee in acupuncture, in so what it is. It's just like noninvasive light touch on lake on the body. Obviously, you're closed in everything, and it can be for people or animals. And so it's essentially like jump starts a person's own energy like he'll link or healing system, through it aims to detect and correct any kind of energy imbalances in the mind, body and spirit. How'd you get into that Hamal? I've always sleek, not always, but like when I started really getting into light Neutra. Shannon, and like more of a holistic lifestyle I learned about Rakia few years prior to starting school. And I was so fascinated by that. And also in a lot of different spiritual healing methods in general. I was just very my mind. I was pretty lake open minded to all these different things when I heard about it a night heard that there were some people locally, who taught classes I was like I jumped on that now was like I gotta do this. And I also was looking for ways to heal myself because really raking first and foremost, his like for yourself end. That's what we were taught is to do your self Frankie practice every single day to kind of in it really made a difference in my life, cool. Awesome. Yes. So backtracking a little bit. Like, why, why did you get so interested in nutrition to the point where you will, like, yeah, this is what I wanna do like I want to become a practitioner. So it kind of took a while to get there. But so in two thousand twelve hundred thirteen I was teaching English in South Korea and. And I was either I was like at a kind of the road, I was like, I'm gonna either resign in stay here another year or I'm going to go back to the states in go get my master's degree. And I knew that I was really into. Honestly, I didn't know that. I wanted to do nutrition. But I knew that I wanted my master's in. I was like, I'm interested in food, and all this stuff, and I was looking into I'm like I just chose it. I'm going to do that. But then when I moved back to the states, I moved to Houston thinking, I was gonna do like your traditional nutritionist degree type thing. I looked it up. I didn't it didn't resonate with me like the traditional like my plate, the food pyramid. And he the live at milk and all that stuff. So I was like I can't do this. So I've been searched for schools that were more integrative in had like the same kind of mindset that I did. And from there, a just like I started kind of digging into the research in trying to heal myself, I had some kind. Kind of I developed food sensitivities in allergies, when I was about twenty years old. So it's fan. Almost a tenure journey for me to try to figure out, I guess what foods work for me and to find that food freedom, kind of thing. And so I guess that that's just kind of wet started at all was, you know, trying to heal myself looking into getting really into blogs, and, you know, Instagram and all that stuff in it, sorta falling people and I was like, oh my God. This is so pool and we can talk about it later but I was doing like the whole thirty end twenty one day sugar detox in weren't we all yet we were. But then when I when I found results for me, as far as I kind of heal myself I wasn't feeling sick all the time. I was eating really well whole foods. Yes. I did lose weight. But it wasn't like dramatic at first I felt really good about myself. And I was like I believe that I can help other people do the same thing and my biggest passion kind of above all, this working with, like adults is working with children in educating them, like working in the lunchroom's and changing the lunchroom food and stuff like that. So I'm just really passionate on that side. Yeah. Yes. So what we're the kinds of symptoms that you were experiencing that then, once you went down this rabbit hole, like research in blogs, and everything you're like, oh, these might be food sensitivities, but what was coming up for you before you figured out that, that's what it was severe physically. I was me and my girlfriend at the time we were in college, you know, we were going on all the time and eating out and drinking and all. All that stuff. And you know, I had that typical college diet lifestyle cereal op cards Rama noodles writing theory the air. Yes. Of course. And then I started every time we would go out to eat, or I would eat something I literally felt nauseous, like I might cheek started to flush. I started getting like lightheaded dizzy, and my like I was start celebrating and I needed to go throw up immediately and it was with everything, though, I mean, anything that, especially, you know, anything with cream or dairy all the bread things wine all the things it just like made me feel really bad in. So I was like, I don't know what's wrong with me. Like I couldn't keep anything down inside, eventually went to the doctor and get tested and they came back with itchy ease. So people don't know. That's like your true allergy. I was alerted to everything I felt like it was allergic to life. You know, Brad milk dairy eggs, beef pork all the all the things. But then looking back now. And with. I have that would just show that I have severe in impermeability in, you know, had some gut issues for sure. Yeah. Yes. Always going to ask, like, we know that as practitioners, but many people don't realize that when you get one of those tests back in it shows that you have a ton of food sensitivities it doesn't mean that you're actually allergic to all those foods. It just means that will one you're sensitive to them right now, but most likely because you have some leaky gutter intestinal permeability going on. And then the answer to that problem of having all these food sensitivities that are causing the symptoms is okay, let's, he'll up the gut, and then you will should be able to eat these things at least in some kind of moderation again, but then it's also backing up from that even more in saying, okay? Well, what caused the gut inflammation league he got in the first place. So were you able to figure out what that was, I would looking back up? Lutely, it was just from a very young age. I you know, my family did the best they could. But we ate vary. You know boxed every. Saying, you know, really poor quality food your hamburger helper. You know talking Denner kits. So I ate really poorly. I also used food as comfort..
