They allowed us to ride over the Arizona Bridge on our bikes, the one and only time you can ride over the bridge with your bike. That's cool, You know, e think that began my room. We'll talk about that. A minute began my romance. When York was always I'll never forget that we can't wait to hear.

So I'm glad you're finally gonna reveal all no, no, it's not romance with bicycles. It's a romance with New York City, and I think many of our listeners who live here love the city the way I do. That's what I'm saying. Also in the Big Three. The vaccines are on the way, but who's going to get them first? Once again. This is going to drive this country apart.

And Steve Ross, it's a warning sign land. Exactly exactly. I mean, it's a metaphor for this presidency. This presidency is going to be hobbled from the beginning because the guy's gonna be in a boot. Then it'll be a hip cast sooner will be a body cast, and then it'll be just proper him up from behind, as they did when he was running for election, But she's glad you're back. Michael, I'm so glad you're back with your lunacy. Really? Good bye, Everybody nice talking to you. Michael's gonna go on for the next four hours with his nonsense, and you know it will be.

Because there's so much shame around fighting when you first have a baby. I felt like no one did it and now I know like everyone does it. It's so funny because I was just talking to a friend the other day and she was not going to name her name but she was like you know our it's crazy. They're baby is five months old and she's like I really don't like my husband. Now's a girl. It's just a thing after you have kids. It's really hard but you guys just have to really work on your communication. And but she's like but I didn't know it was going to be like that and I'm like yeah. I feel like people should have like a pamphlet on how to not hit. Your kids. Hit your husband after Kids Lynn. Just exactly why you wrote your book because people don't really talk about it. No no and I had friends after I wrote the book I said Oh yeah. I didn't talk to John for two years after the twins were born. I was like what? Why didn't you say anything to me? I mean you know it's just a thing where when you have a boyfriend or girlfriend he kinda talk about the maybe with your friends a little bit. But it's a little different when you're married and I felt like I couldn't talk about it with my mother who has a really long memory and would would remember twenty years from now anything that I told her are so and I just felt and I also felt embarrassed. I thought you know we getting these fights and our pattern This may sound familiar to a lot of people who is called pursuer distance or where I would yell and he would retreat and the more I would yell the more he was sort of like turn gray and crumple into a little ball and so and I would be like. Can you hear me now? And I would. I would swear from New Jersey. I'm very creative with my variations of Dick Dick Dick bag and so what my daughter saw. I mean you want another Wind down you were talking about being worried about. You know how much my daughter's scene in the early days and is it going to impact her later as Julie GonNa be you know. What will the show up later? I'm sure you've heard from many parents that have said. Oh they're remember anything you know before the age of four including the expensive Disney vacation. We took him to but like with with us. I started noticing sylvie. My daughter started changing her personality at around age. For like you're already through a lot of that stuff. But with us it was really reaching a crescendo. And so what were you saying? Because Soleus for now she just she just turned four right. So she's an you. You have learned how to disagree and like a healthy way and we were in the meantime. Our daughter was four. And what what started happening is you're like. Are you going to get a question in it anymore? I'm sorry I'm like talking but this is a subject talking about. We notice that her personality was changing and she was this bubbly happily happy girl and she started getting kind of quiet and she started getting a little watchful and then because I was the one yelling even though Tom Admits now that's my husband. He he he was the problem with us when we had the baby is that he he was devolved guy and he was like. Oh I'm GONNA help out. He didn't we fell back into these really old patterns where he didn't do much like my life changed a lot and I did most of the housework in the childcare and has didn't change much not only got. He took a long distance cycling week. Our baby was born and training for the New York Marathon. Perfect time when he was literally like running away and cycling away from US and so there was tension and anyway when when I would get upset that he was like not doing anything and I was doing most of the stuff what our daughter saw was not like gender inequality. She's not some feminist scholar. She saw me yelling and him like shrinking and so she would jump in front of him and say. Don't Yell at Daddy and I thought. Oh crap and so. That's a dynamic she saw and we. That's what prompted me to sort of do this and to write the book and to go through intense therapy we do intensive care to is because I thought oh I'm changing my daughter's personality and it makes me Sorta sad now because I think like Gee I wasn't even concerned that our marriage was falling into the toilet. It was more about. We're ruining our kid. But look whatever gets you there you know. We took steps to improve after that and how to fight fair. So how do you not hate your husband after kids? What are what are some like? Please give me something tangible to hold onto. Okay what I okay fighting in a healthy way number one and you know just one thing about if if your children you see you disagree in a healthy way. As you've mentioned both of you have mentioned on podcast like it is a good thing and I just wanted to tell you before I go on that. There was this great research at the University of West Virginia that I think about a lot and they observed thirteen year olds. A bunch of them who Were watching their parents. Fight in both healthy and unhealthy ways. Thirteen that's where all my issues come from Ya. Like an and then they went back and it was a hundred and fifty seven teenagers when they were sixteen. They found that those kids were forty percent more likely the ones that saw their parents disagree in a healthy way. Thirty percent more likely to stand up to peer pressure when offered alcohol or drugs. So I think about that all the time. I'm like okay now that we're disagreeing and mostly a healthy way. This is good modeling behavioral modeling for her to follow like so. So that makes me feel a little bit better like if you know then. It isn't scary like in my family. It was like simmering tension and then explosions. L- that's not a healthy way to disagree. You know and so she sees us. We use the same therapy language that you guys use. Don't say no say yes and you know your feelings. So the best ways that I have found to not have that Hatred and I really should've called the book how how to love your husband after kids but it wouldn't have sold as well tonight is look like a. I don't I don't have time to love him right now. So one is don't expect him to read your mind and this is my classic thing that I did. I really was doing that thing. That Brunei Brown calls this story. I'm making up. Which is I would make story for him like Ha. I'm sitting on the couch with my wife's doing all the work we wasn't gloating he just didn't know and I would do this thing where I would hate prepared dinner and Bang. Pats pots around and it was like what? Just tell them how you feel. Tell them what you need. So one thing is just. Don't expect them to read your mind. A number two is fight fairly use. I describe the problem and not the person not. You're sitting on the couch but I need some help or there's crap on the floor. Can you pick it up? Describe the situation and I know you know all of this and also describe how you feel because I have found. Someone can't argue with how you feel. If you say I feel depressed that you forgot to pick up diapers. They can argue with that. You feel depressed kind of concrete. So that sort of heads off that like next argument and another thing is paraphrasing that I learned from I interviewed a couple of FBI crisis negotiators. Because I thought they would know how to calm someone down in three minutes. They do so my friend Gary who used to run the crisis negotiation unit of the FBI for said that everyone just wants to be heard whether it's someone that's like holding up a bank or a prison riot which he had to put down he said. People WanNa be heard so you paraphrase. What they're trying to say to you. I hear you guys do it all the time on the podcast. It's like you repeat back with the person is saying in your own words. Because if I felt like Tom my husband was hearing me. It immediately. Called me down like it. It really did and so that helps and also sings thank you. There's this research from the University of Georgia that that's one of those habits that predict whether someone will stay married for a really long time just saying thank you to each other. I think can be annoying when you're kind of in it and you're fighting or squabbling. You don't really necessarily want to say like Oh you know. Thank you for Picking up the kid after school but those little thank you make a huge difference. I mean I could go on and on. I learned so much that I put into practice every day. Because it is something you have to practice. Isn't it Another one that that someone told me is a phrase that I use a lot is. What does it cost you? And that is. Don't do this thing where he would come from a soccer game on the weekend and then he would take a shower for twenty minutes and for some reason. That shower annoyed the crap out of me. I would be like you know what I mean. I take military shower for thirty seven. What are you doing in there? Why we're not giving ourselves that time. That's what I've realized. Why can I take a long shower? Geno that's exactly right like you default to resentment yet but you could take a long shower too. Yeah and that's and that's why can't because I have to do this. And then the kids and whatever like that's on you and I'm like you know what I was like crap. It is on me so now I take really long showers because he takes a really long poops and I don't resent his poops anymore. Because I'm taking a really long shower and it's okay and the more you do that the better and like even you know and I would. I would ask myself. What does it cost me like here? I'm I'm baking too big. My child is fine. She's playing with legos. Or whatever it's not costing anything. I'm just annoyed right so I had to ask myself all the time. And you're so right about the resentment like is it because you're jealous that you you're not giving permission to do that to like. I would do this thing where he would go out for a run or whatever and I would think. Oh Yeah Nice and I thought I could go out for a run. I just choose not to. He's okay with the kid he's not gonNA kill the kid okay and but we put so much pressure on ourselves us so that's the same thing where it's like. I get resentment. I'm like man. I'm resentful that you can sit there and have a twenty minute poop. Because I'm like do you not think about what maybe Joel in Jason's right now or what we have to do or the next hour or maybe forty forty laundry or so then? I get resentful that maybe he's not thinking about those things that it was. Maybe not and he might not be thinking about those things. But that's okay. That's not how his brain works but it's how my brain works and so it's like but do I really want him to think the things that I think no because then it would. Just be super chaotic. We yeah we have a similar dynamic in that. I cannot have a hard time with downtime and I feel like I need to me like you. I need to be Janet. I need to do something productive every second of the day which is also it's called time contamination and it pertains to women only wear you get spare twenty minutes and instead of like sitting down with a cup of tea or doing anything. That's a little bit. You're like gotta go by you know sports equipment for the kids or gotta go pick grocer like you can't give me anxiety self that time witnessing that and that's my time is lunch has become my favorite meal of the day. He puts on his little her his his his beats headphones. He grabs his thing brings his IPAD and for the longest time. I was so resentful of your lunchtime. Wow a lunchtime. Wouldn't that just be so great to have my own time for thirty five minutes. I sit in the office. I watch whatever show. I'm watching it at the moment. I eat my lunch in. The thing is is breakfast chaotic because he got the kids dinners usually chaotic. And I'm usually the one cooking dinner so we got a feed the kids cook dinner and and everything. So I'm like lunch is my meal. I was like this is my thirty to forty minutes every day. Don't bother me and now Gina finally realizes if she comes by the office door like window and see that Matt..

"So here you are here here. You know. We are in Austin Texas. And I'm thrilled beyond thrilled. Well I appreciate you having me. We pull this off in forty eight hours exactly right. I know I mean literally lands connected us like a day and a half ago. And you're like are you in. Austin I'm like yeah and then a day later you're like hey you WANNA do it. I'm in Austin. They say time pills deals right so here we are we. We saw the opportunity to do so this morning as I was Was pulling in here. You're out for a run right. Obviously I recognize you with the great curly hair and the headband. Why do you love headbands so much? Just probably now party you. Yeah just since since I've been probably eighteen years old. I've always worn shorts a ski hat or headband. I only wear shorts until I was thirty. Five years old even to work and then they force mad. A private jet company called Marquee jet and was harder to sell people time on a private jet when I would show up at meetings in shorts so I had to start wearing jeans but Yeah it's always. I'm just comfortable in it so it's not no other reason beyond that it's comfortable for me so running is something that you love. You absolutely adored. You've been running for how many years now I've been running religiously probably for twenty nine years twenty years since I'm twenty one. Okay and you do it every every morning every morning. You don't miss a day. I maybe I missed every year on this forty five days any much. Yeah and what's what's behind that long. It's just a lifestyle thing it's not I don't look at it as a chore. I don't look it is. It's part of my lifestyle and You know it makes me feel good. I think there's a certain level of discipline the comes. I mean obviously but I think that translates that disciplined translates into all areas of my life and It's just become like I said it's just something that I don't think about. It's just it's just baked into my routine. No matter where I am no matter how cold how hot that I do. They ask Richard Branson what is key to success was recently an interview and he said. You know going to the gym and I don't think he meant it makes him stronger. It's just I think it's the consistency and the discipline associated with it so for me. It's not even the run. I mean it's just I'm prioritizing myself. First of all and Putting health I which is super important to me and then it just sets a tone the rest of the day one of the things. You also talk about. I think it's both your books is kind of finding that edge and one of things I find because I like you. Every morning I get up and I swim. We've been doing it for as long as I can remember but I also find that it gives me a little bit of an edge and When have that swimming or my belt? You have your run under your belt. It's like it seems like everything goes smoother during the day. Yeah I mean it's just people always ask me you know if they're if you feel overwhelmed your stock or you're in a creative rut. How do you get out of it? And the answer is small wins you get momentum and when you start your day and I always try to run early first thing. I mean I have four kids I get off the school and then I get after it but With if you start your day with a win everything else in a sense is gravy and even if you have a crazy terrible day at least when your head hits the pillow you can say okay. I got this this victory that no one can take away from you and you control the other thing Have you had breakfast yet today? No you haven't okay. Well why do you? Why do you say it like that I'm not I don't believe in the whole breakfast is the most important and should be your biggest meal philosophy. I go the other way. So I I only fruit until noon. That's something I've been doing since. Twenty one years old and that is unwavering and So I don't look at. I don't even think of the word breakfast isn't even a word in my vocabulary. Where where did you learn about like only fruit before noon? I read a book called. I was running my first marathon so I was looking for any kind of edge because I had never. I really went from couch to marathon overnight and in the course of a month or two and I wasn't a runner at all and I signed up for the New York marathon and I was reading and trying to find anything that would give me an advantage to complete this successfully. Because I wasn't a runner and I came upon a book called fit for life by guy named Harvey diamond that he wrote in the late eighties And picked it up and I read it and in the book it challenge the reader to only eat fruit until noon for ten days. And then go back to your regular breakfast on day eleven so I like I can make ten the investment so I did that and on day eleven I went back to the Bagel bread beacon. Cereal whatever I was eating I felt the sculpting and I just never went back since then and you know I have a laugh. Consider myself on a one to have a high energy guy. I don't think I've ever missed a day of work. Maybe in the last couple of days but not you know and I attribute that to my diet and a big part of that is only eating fruit. We could talk about the science behind it. A why Harvey does it but for me it was more of a trial and error thing more than anything else and for me. It worked great so in in reading. Both your books are you. How would you consider yourself if you were to label yourself a vegetarian? Vegan plant based plant strong. Do you have a term for like how you eat? I don't have a term for it. I don't I guess lifestyle I don't really think about it but if I were if I were to put numbers around it I would probably say I'm almost a fruitarian. I only fruit until twelve. Sometimes five sometimes but I'm probably eighty five percent raw. I eighty five percent raw. I do have some fish in my my diet like an ESA social thing when I go out with my wife. We have a date night once a week we Sushi. I'll just to be social but so I'm not I don't really keep track of it but I am. I pretty clean right mostly fruits and vegetables so it sounds like you're mostly mostly plant-based at least eighty five to ninety percent is yeah and I saw on your instagram. That you've worn some plant plant based shirts and yeah yeah I think even even Vegan right. You're not afraid to do that now. I have no dairy. I mean very little refined sugars. I very few grains. Yeah Yeah and is it fair to say that for the most part you don't care what people think One hundred percent. I wouldn't say for the most part now. I know yeah. Yeah and that's and that's just not about what you eat. Basically what you do with your life and how you act and stuff like that. It's just again. It's just the way it's just no one's GonNa sway me from my beliefs or from what I what works for me. And I'm consistent with it if I'm when I ran my hundred mile run A month or two ago it was the same thing I woke up and I had a big bowl of fruit is no matter. What the circumstance. It's the same thing

there well anyone who's running twenty six miles music slightly insane his works in America about five times while Hey Lisa leases filling in for Joan I hear you say you ran a marathon I did I write about five years ago and I remember it was windy and it was thirty degrees and as a result art which has a bill right could barely get across the Verrazano itching aside wait was not my daughter ran several years actually thought she said the highlight was running up fifth of First Avenue with the crowds was the what was the highlight for you yeah I think when you come off the bridge you can ask what my husband says he too like silence as you're going under because there's nobody in all you hear is feet and then you walk out to and you hear the crowd like we're in a crowd yeah yeah everybody said that yeah such an experience what was your time of gosh for for I want to do it in under four hours so that's what I did yeah three right three hours fifty nine yeah yeah did you lose a few pounds run in the race get training during training training because you just running all the time but you're eating more to it which is yeah so one it's about this carbo loading you know they they with the business with all the pasta than the people really do that I did Egypt yeah at night at the dinner before that was all helpful for you I'm probably not burn so much you need all that extra actually the big meal for my husband was the mail after yeah because you're so depleted of everything that you write he has to offer you sure that he eats Chinese food because it is just filled with salt and you you're literally dripping salt off of your body it's pretty when I had when I cover the marathon what I found fascinating was the percentage of people to finish the race you know you think it's over twenty six miles you have significant drop outs right it's like ninety eight percent this actually finish really because everybody who decides to run it is training I mean they're not saying I think I could run twenty six miles right into it and unfortunately the people who don't are beginning to choosing injuries a lot of people cramp up yeah and then you just can't get back out

just the such an effort to get over to for me I you I can't see you running at all yeah I would I don't smile breaking up a sweat for anything two miles a day in Boston and I would I try to go to three and I just couldn't get there really yeah I don't know what they said the long you go the easier it is or was it for me has the walking working out for you great it's a great loss weight you know it's just it's just good to get the heart pumping and I do listen to the podcast our show real here get your heart pumping listening does Michael Celera's that I listen to us on the bike Hey are we are we gonna talk about moving to Florida because normally when a New Yorker or or someone from New Jersey was the Florida it's because they've done something Rog and they got the homestead laws down there we could never lose your house right right normally when you hear someone leaving New York for Florida they have something wrong so it fits tighter means if it's right in with Donald Trump please here's this tweak your nearest we yeah sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue the White House the place I've come to love it will stay for hopefully another five years as we make America great again but my family and I will be making Palm Beach Florida our permanent residence I cherish New York and the people of New York but unfortunately despite the fact that pay millions of dollars in city state and local taxes are right let's see the tax returns I'll come I'll actually is tax let's see that he's been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state goes on and on and on that's why he's moved out you know what and I thought this before I don't think I ever verbalize light so to be difficult for him to come back and just be a regular New Yorker having been the you know president and then all the division that's been cooked up over the last three years I would be very difficult for him to come back here and live here is a so called normal process people would probably taunting and teasing and restaurants the way those crazy Democrats to the Republicans down to Washington I don't like that no I I actually don't like that okay that's awful but so you can't seriously line you can't blame people and the studies are showing over and over again people are leaving this part of the country because the taxes are so high but he did make a worse with the sole taxes only a deductible of ten thousand dollars he did help to contribute to make a worse minor minor grand scheme of I really want to look at my check book it was a minor at all last year cost me a bundle I'm sure cost you and anyone else who well paced than we've been living up here for a long time and there comes a certain point where you retired you think I can't stay up here anymore because when I take the money out of my retirement funds attacks at such a high level up here it is that's the thing about retirement funds to that because you think the whole premise of retirement fund is by the time you get there having a lower tax bracket right does no you're not no you're not doesn't work that way you can't blame a monologue as nice place I've been there it is nice but so he's going to go full time Florida resin and you gonna miss him well I doubt I will tell you that back in the day was always I always like running into my was that it was a fun guy so why'd you change what you term well he became president is that if I did I thought just because it is I just thought you know you might even a fun guy any might a host of the great the game show I

Kate showman author of memoirs of an X. prom queen what you think about the March on Washington well I think that was the moment that we actually did have the rebirth of the movement it was an anti trump moved up March it was an anti trump movement that was reborn are born in the wake of trunks trump's election and to any movement that can get out a million people and it was well more than a million if you consider the whole country and in cities all over the world it was the biggest demonstration this country had ever seen so I've read out that marked the moment of change you know there were precursors and even me too had been a a smaller movement that had been started by Tirana Burke in I think two oh six I'm not sure up but it hadn't had much publicity but once that trump election occurred and people were so angry and so organize it made it possible for me to to take off I do believe that there are no and this was a mantra of that they twenty century women's movement there are no personal solutions you can't change the society on your own no matter how much of a hero you might be for the moment it takes a movement so there had been some women who had protested against the kind of treatments that me too was organized to protest but until there's a movement it doesn't make a huge difference I think there's another big difference in the movements the twentieth century one in the twenty first and that is that where is our organizing tool is consciousness raising speak outs demonstrations mimeographed flyers that we passed out on the street now organizing this how much brighter and easier because of the internet and that's a huge difference my guest is Alex Kidd Shulman she is the author of memoirs of an X. prom queen so what do you think it is about this story that

you would like young feminists and young readers to take from it today in twenty nineteen well actually I ask young readers what they take from it interesting when you hear and they are astonished by how many of the episodes in my novel I like what's going on today there are things that have changed very important things that the movement accomplished but a lot of it hasn't for example rape sexual assault domestic violence in some ways they may even be worse I don't know I don't know the statistics well it can't be worse than when I was young and to get a rape conviction you had to have to witness yeah but it's still a big challenge and it's still that the rate be the woman who is raped is shamed and not believed I mean just look at our Supreme Court hearings from Anita hill to the most recent one with Cavanaugh the woman isn't believed or even if she is secretly believed she is attacked so that up whatever it is she's trying to accomplish will be accomplished and I think it's very clear when you read my novel that even though it practically fifty years ago well it is because it's set earlier than when I wrote it lots of it hasn't changed some of the things I think that the movement did change for ever well let's maybe there is no forever for a long long time is that women now have access to all kinds of jobs if they were not permitted to have back then in fact you may probably know that the help wanted ads in the newspaper which was where people went to find jobs before the internet they were that they had they had separate columns help wanted mailing help wanted female and you just weren't allowed to apply for the help wanted male ones and the help wanted film female ones were completely if the payment was so much lower than it was for men so that's changed although there's still a pay disparity law firm of yes women of color having the greatest gap as it always was but men of color and white men still are higher in their payments in in the their wages than women whatever color so even when it comes to the workplace where women have access to a lot more jobs than they did before this there's no equality at all and even especially at the opposite at at the high and the low ends of the employment scan a it's men who have the vast majority of the highest paying jobs and is women who have the majority of the lowest paying jobs and you can't cross over one of the things you you've said in several interviews and I think it's interesting coming off this this discussion about pay disparity is that you didn't want to make men the villains absolutely and in the book and in this conversation how did you avoid that in the book and how do you suggest that young feminists people who are really fired up what do you want me to take away from that statement that you don't wanna make men the villains the reason I didn't wanna make the van the villain any man the villain in my novel all those there some really hideous behavior in a tough and vitamins the reason I didn't was I didn't want readers to be able to think oh well those were just a bunch of bad men and or she's just prejudice or she's a man hater I wanted it to be typical behavior that anybody could identify with and I understand that they do you know so that was my motive I wanted to protect my novel from being dismissed as just a rant and I and I do think that for a movement to succeed to change the world the way we hope men have to be involved just as much as women now it may take a lot of work to get men to fight for equality for everybody for every group that is marginalized or pressed but I think it's essential for example one of the changes that's been accomplished is that when I wrote that novel the idea that men should do house work or be an equal partner in raising children was laughable ridicule level and I actually wrote an essay about it which was widely ridiculed to expect men to change the diapers but now at least lip service is paid to it now there is some men who do in braces that goal and we need all men to embrace that goal and I think we need women to rethink it I often went up correct friends who say yeah my husband's babysitting baby sitting that's as child he's looking after shot exactly exactly yeah it's it's there the father but it wasn't a goal it wasn't even a concept back then and I think that has changed but not enough and in fact for everything that I could describe that has changed it's not enough we're nowhere near equal we no where near having the privilege the male privilege the white privilege disappeared no where near it yet my guest is Alex Kate showman than her novels memoirs for next prom queen I have to ask you for what you go about the sex in the novel was it as shocking as I assume it was were people shocked when they read about the sex the novel well there were a lot of reviews and though most of the ones by women not all said women will recognize their themselves in this novel and they won't be shocked but there isn't a mail reader who won't be shocked so that his hair stands on end of and that is true it was considered very shocking but I don't think it was their shocking to women not every woman is going to have the experiences that Sasha goes through but probably every woman is going to have at least a couple of them and even hi you know this is fiction slash is a fictional character but a lot of it actually happened to me if there was something in my life that I could use for my purpose I used it up so if it happened to me it happened to lots and lots and lots of people I don't but there is a difference we have the purpose of through consciousness raising of making women understand that they were oppressed and it wasn't just the way it was supposed to be I think that the twenty first century women know that they're a brat oppressed they don't have to learn that they have to be able to organize and fight back against the oppression and they're doing so in a wonderful way in many many ways so I think of my novel as in some sense a kind of a a guide book of what needs to be fought for what needs doing what needs changing if you could if you could think of one thing that could happen cultural a professional a the side elite that would a small thing that would make a big difference in terms of women's rights today what would be such a small thing that could have a real big impact well I have to answer is fine I do think that the most important thing is organizing organizing that's it and without organizing and making a a push by masses of women or by lots of women it's not going to change up and the other thing is I think that electing many many women to Congress and even to the presidency and the judge ships giving women in office is very important but again that requires organizing my guess is bin Alex Kate showman the name her book is memoirs of an X. prom queen it was lovely speaking with you thanks for being here thanks so much Ellison this is all of it on.

There was a moment where your dad was. We'll be talking for that will capture that moment is undeniable you were leading the New York marathon. Yeah. And what I don't know what strategically is wrong with this plan by because I'm like, well, I could probably make it a quarter mile winning the marathon or practice. Bead have to work really hard to get in the first corral. Right. I think that would be nice. I'm very slippery person get myself place. I wanna be sure sure sure. Trust me getting to a place where I'm not technically supposed to be is not the issue. Concern going full sprint and then seizing up. And then me and trampled by the entire the New York marathon. I will say this. My most of my training just involves short bursts sprint from the from the starting line. Just so I can say for a moment. I was a winning the World Vision. Global six gay for clean water because really for me. Yes. It's a great cost. But I'm a winner. And even if I'm only winning a second. I that's better than having been at all. I think you have a wrong mental image of what the revision global six K for water is going to be like you can run in your neighborhood, you and some friends I understand register raise money, and it is running your neighborhood. That's like a family race. All y'all live there together. But true, but I'm running in Florida with the staff, and now that people know that we're hosting one. I mean, I'm expecting nothing less than busloads of listeners. Away. We definitely have seen on Twitter that there are some people that will be traveling to Florida to run with us. So you can you can humiliate them in person. Jesse? Even if even if the humiliation is like thirty yards. Talker for there to be ready for the moment when Jesse is leading.

But it also is about a project that he's embarked with with his co author of the book named Michael Martin and Michael Martin is a professional blacksmith. And he's also starting organization called rawal tools, and raw is also wore spelled backwards and whether doing is you can send Michael your if you had a firearm or gun, you can send it to him and he will use his blacksmiths skills to turn it into a gardening tool. And what they're trying to do is go to city from city. They're collecting people's gun turning them into garden tools, and they're really trying to put like a literal interpretation of the prophecy and Isaiah about when the kingdom of God comes people will turn their swords into Plowshares. And so they're trying to put that prophecy and practice and also take some guns all to St. I think we should try to do other biblical prophecies very literally as well. I'm very inspired by this.
