Corporate Criticism of GOP-Led Voting Bills Spreads to Texas

"Prominent Texas corporations this week joined the call to protect voting rights, and that drew a verbal tirade from Governor Greg Abbott. We have American airlines, we have a TNT. We have a Dell computers away and others who have taken a position against the election law reforms we met in the state of Texas work, the C E O tzar of these companies and the leaders of these companies admitted. I had no idea what the Texas lost said, or whether Texas proposed law say before taking a position against it. They need to stay out of politics, especially when they have no clue what they're talking about. Grassroots opposition to these bills continues to grow on Thursday about 100 voting rights activists gathered outside the 18 T corporate headquarters in downtown Dallas. As Kate, You're raised. Christopher Connelly reports. It's part of a statewide campaign to pressure corporations to oppose Republican bills that would make it harder to vote. The activists want to send a message stand on the side of voting rights or be party to an ugly new chapter in Texas history. So why? No Pastor Freddie Haynes of French of West Baptist Church says Over the summer a TNT declared that black lives matter. But now the company's failing to support black people's right to vote right now. In Texas voter suppression is going on in the name of voter integrity, but all of us ain't fallen for the okey doke because we recognize It has ugly Route A TNT released a statement saying the right to vote is sacred and calling it the single best way to ensure everyone's voice is heard. It didn't mention the sweeping GOP bills, which would limit early voting band drive through voting and make it a crime to proactively send out vote by mail applications.

This is not a time for any corporation to sit on the sideline for Worth based American Airlines and round Rock based Dell Technologies have opposed the legislation. If the activists have their way.

Massachusetts State Police Sign Pledge to Increase Women in Policing

"Czar Cohen reports. The Massachusetts state Police have joined the 30 by 30 Initiative, created at the New York University School of Law with the goal of making women 30% of police forces by the year 2030. State police Superintendent Colonel Christopher Mason says. Right now women make up only 5% of the mass state police force. A lot of things that make it difficult to recruit women into law enforcement are the traditional perception of what the job is about the pretty sophisticated job. That requires a lot of skills. A lot of those skills that are skill sets that that women have, He says. The recent turmoil and controversy surrounding police nationally have made recruiting difficult recruiting continues to be a challenge. Not only for the Massachusetts state police but nationally, Mason says the state police hope to learn the best strategies for recruiting and retaining women by working with the other members of the initiative.

'Clear the Capitol,' Pence pleaded, timeline of riot shows

"A timeline that contains new details about the deadly riot at the U. S. Capitol on January 6th. It shows the inaction by then President Trump and how that contributed to a slow response by the military and law enforcement. Two hours into the riot. Vice President Mike Pence by then, in a secure location, phoned acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller demanding answers. Pence pleaded with him to quote clear the capital. Timeline shows that the intelligence missteps, tactical errors and bureaucratic delays were topped by the government's failure to comprehend the scale and intensity of a violent uprising by its own citizens.

The Resurgence of Psychedelic Psychiatry

"I'm only here with. Npr science correspondent. john hamilton. hydro on me. So as npr's neuroscience reporter you're always reporting on the most interesting thing so what you got for us today. What i've got for you. Today is psychedelic drugs. Not literally of course. But i wanna talk about how these drugs are getting a second look as a way to treat psychiatric problems like depression anxiety substance use disorders. Even ptsd in the past decade. It's become a very hot topic. Brain sites yes. It is a very hot topic. In fact john. Our first shortwave episode was about using silla sivan as a treatment for smoking cessation. Some guy you're bringing this topic back to the podcast. What are some of the drugs will be talking about today. Lot of familiar names. You mentioned suicide side. There's also ketamine masculine. Ibew gain ecstasy even Lsd in some cases and those are all drugs that can cause hallucinations or out of body experiences. Right right and most of them are not legal right but how do they work for depression. And all those other psychiatric conditions so ketamine for example is able to help a lot of people with major depression even when nothing else works about ten years ago i was able to talk to one of the first people to take part in a clinical trial ketamine. His first name is christopher. He asked me not to use his last name. Christopher had depression that made him so aside uil and before he got ketamine he had been prescribed just about every drug out there to treat his depression he told me it started with prozac and paxil and went onto klarna pen atta van zanex ramen gabba penton byu spar depakote. They had me on for a while. That is a long list and none of those helped him either. They didn't work or the side effects. Were so bad. He had quit taking them. But christopher was lucky managed to get into one of the first studies of ketamine and now fifteen years later the fda has approved a version of ketamine for use in people like christopher.

S6 E7 - How YOU can build resilience in the face of chronic conditions

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers looking frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be well just some craziness that is post military life so you can do more than survive. You can thrive my name. Is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband. Who beautiful wife daddy to two amazing kiddos and the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the process of rediscovering purpose in your post military life sue. You can thrive so the questions we talk about on the show you know. A lot of them are direct questions. You know how to use eleven gi bill. What's new for veterans. twenty one. Those are just a couple of things we talked about in the season. This is a season six episode. Seven and we're tackling a tough question today and there's no single answer to that's the toughest part about this question so before we dive into the question. I want you to think of math equations for minute. Just really simple ones. Two plus two. What's two plus two. It's four right so very simple. Very easy math equation vice. What's tuplice to. You're always going to say you're always going to know. Won't let's four but if i say what math equations when you finish them we'll have four as that end number and be like man. I don't know that's almost an unlimited number of answers. What's the same thing today. Because today's question is surrounding how you build resilience when a family member has a chronic condition and there was a virtually unlimited number of answers to this question. But i'm going to do my best to unpack those and there's a lot to unpack here so let's get started so my son. Christopher was born in two thousand eight and he had a kidney disease and still. Has this kidney disease to this day and We knew that he had some problems with his kidneys. Because they found the these problems on an ultrasound. When i was in iraq and my wife was still in germany and The the did the ultrasounds that hey you know what we recommend you go ahead and head back to the states because you know you can get you can get better medical care there in the states and so my wife moved back what she thought was temporarily and ended up being a permanent move I- redeployed early on and a compassionate reassignment and Got to fort knox kentucky which was the closest. Us army post Where to where. My son was getting his medical care and for the first couple years of his life he went through. Thing was eleven or twelve operations and Numerous other procedures to get these kidneys fixed. Now today. it's amazing it. You would never know. A single thing was wrong within the last couple of times. He's gone to the kidney. Specialists are like look his kidney. Function is great. He's doing very very well. And so that was a trial by fire so to speak. That was kind of like. Hey this this is A method i guess. A real world Test to see if you. Aaron are resilient and so. I learned a lot about resilience just in that experience. You know because again this is not just a flash in the pan you know Something one thing happened and then we had to deal with that. You know a broken limb or you know an accident or something like that. It was a chronic condition and again still is to this day but i learned a lot about resilience through dealing with my son's challenges with that disease and if you think back to military life right and this is army specifically i have to expect that all the services are like this but they build resilience in to the training plan. You know and as important as that is personal resilience all together now the past two months. I'll be honest with you. Guys have been absolutely brutal. They've been crazy because not only does my son have a kidney disease but my wife has chronic conditions as well so the past couple of months. My wife and i got her permission to tell some of her story. Her story is man. If if you ever meet my wife asked her to tell you her story because it is absolutely jaw dropping. How she is where she is today. You know based on where she came from and an all the the difficulties she came through to become the woman she is today but just in these past couple of months We experienced quite the scare and that scare It it seemed like it was cancer. Just be honest so for A while we were getting tests and then waiting for more tests and we got those tests and We said okay well. We're just going to get through this. You know no matter what happens. We're we're in this together and we're gonna stick together through this well. My wife goes to get a biopsy and she gets this biopsy. She's in recovery. The biopsy went fine. It was painful but it went fine. nothing was unexpected But it went fine while she was in recovery and this recovery was just a quick recovery. Just a few hours. She had what is called a ti or a mini stroke. And so we're like. oh my goodness how. In the world number-one how in the world is this happened number. Two how do we deal with this now. You know this is. This seems so much more serious than what it The what started out to be. We thought it was going into get a biopsy and and now here you've got to stay in the hospital. You've gotta be admitted well actually admitted to one hospital then transferred to another because at first hospital was too small and they didn't have the right doctors. There had to be transferred to another hospital and then finally a few days later she gets out. She's getting slowly better. But we still don't have those answers right. Don't have the answers in the biopsy because it takes a week or more to come back and you know she finally gets these answers and they're like yeah. Well we really don't know what it is. We really don't know what it is. It's not cancer. But we're not sure. And so they said. Well we want to send you to an autoimmune specialist and and those Those doctors are are booked up forever and well we can get you. Maybe like june july and so here we are still waiting on those answers and obviously all of this is stressing her out now. Little bit about that mini stroke just answered stress for her brings about these These symptoms where It stress basically over stresses her brain and she ended up needing to quit her job. And you talk about frustrating. And i don't mean frustrating like all you can't work anymore but she was super frustrated at like me. Why in the world is this happening. And and you know. What can i do to help and to build that resilience right but this is. This is not a story about my son. This is not a story about my wife specifically. Today's show is all about building that resilience when your family member has a chronic condition. And so i'll just tell you over. This was going with my wife. I stopped everything i could. You know some of you may have seen an email from said. Hey sorry. Our live mental health event An open dialogue mental health is going to be cancelled if your sponsor for the event. You've already paid. You know we're going to refund your money Which which already did. But there were so many things that i was doing that having a hand in that i said you know what i've just gonna stop doing those things and focus on what matters most right now focus and for me. That's my family. And and i think that is a key element to resilience is focusing on what you need to focus on and again. I know that sounds vague. Right but what is it that you personally need to focus on. Because i can't tell you what you should focus on. I can't tell you that. I wish i could but unfortunately i can't at so. I resigned my position from a nonprofit board Alabama veteran here in here in obviously alabama But also got some help from facebook in preparation In preparation for this episode and Some of you responded and told me how you build resilience in your own personal life. And i want to go through some of those responses real quick and then i'll dive into the five science backed strategies to build resilience but on facebook right. You know one of my friends. He said it. Because i asked i said look. I'm news and helping an oak upcoming podcasts. What are your go-to strategies for building resilience in your personal life and one of my friends. He's kind of a kind of a jokester but he says he says avoiding people and puts us little laughing face or winking face at the end of the comment but the the fact is sometimes that is the to do to help you build resilience and focus on what matters most to you another person. I and i love this. She said it's all about the thought life. It's about your mindset and and she also she said. I'm practicing telling myself no just to exercise that muscle while you know what that's not a bad idea and so there was a number of really good comments here but a couple of them Not a couple of them. I should say a couple of themes came out number. One was faith how my friends saying you know what. I'm learning to do what i've needed to do for years. And that's focus on my faith. You know my faith pushes me past that present crisis or would i'm perceiving as a crisis right you know made. My faith is reading and prayer. And you guys know if if you've listened to this podcast before that you know. This isn't absolutely faith-based podcasts. You know and and my my faith is that of christianity of following jesus But faith has been incredibly important for those seeking to build resilience in a personal lives and Additionally is time for self reflection so one thing is faith is the one theme that came out in the second was self reflection scheduled time for relaxation. And so using those hobbies or those Chill lacks kinda relaxing moments and building those in to your everyday life so that you can handle those stressors right And i wanna mention one of the thing this was. This was a a another theme. That that i know i said only two. There's actually three themes that came out and that's relationships. Relationships are so critically important and one guy actually When my friends here in the area said whoa to him and this is a scripture verse. Actually he's fourteen. He says woe to him who was alone when he falls and doesn't have another lift him up because look lifestyle right. It's really really tough. And the truth is we can't do it by ourselves. We weren't meant to we weren't designed to So it's really really important to have those people in our lives to help us when we can't help ourselves so having those strong relationships around us In a one one other one other comment. I wanna to point out before you get to the five science back strategies for building resilience practice resilience by practicing being resilient each time. Something happens to us. We need to put that in her memory so next time that happens to us even if even if it never happens again we we have that memory of what we did as we figured out you know kind of how to go through that process the first time now. What does that have to do. With a chronic condition you a family member having a chronic condition. All those things apply. They apply directly. Okay so five. Science back strategies to build resilience and this will take just a few minutes number one change the narrative. So look when something bad happens whether it's a single event or a long term Kind of episode right. We often relive the event over and over in our heads and it's called ruminating rehashing the pain and and it it's like we're spinning our wheels. Basically you know There's a study. Said you know what maybe try expressive writing. You know to try gaining some new insights into the challenges in your lives. You know there are a few different ways. You can manage that but that you can change the narrative But one of the one of the ways is to reframe it in another Another perspective or another light. How do you that a one of the things you can do is talk to those in your life that you have those strong relationships with another reason why relationships are so incredibly important. That's the first one number to face your fears. Sure like man. I don't know what's going to happen. In my spouse's life from my child's life because of this chronic condition face it running away is not going to help and when i say face it i i don't mean just dive headlong into a by yourself and tackle it all alone. Another reason why those relationships are so important. So even if you know it's your spouse that's going through something being able to talk to someone else about it about what's going on in your life and how you were feeling is so incredibly valuable. You can't even put a number on it so number one going to change the narrative number to face your fears and face those fears with someone else number three and i'm gonna put this link. This is a great article will put this link in the show notes. You can check out this entire article yourself but practice self compassion. Think of it. Think of what. You're going through right now and think of that in someone else's perspective like if someone else had the same challenges you were having right. Now maybe your child is a chronic condition or your parent or your spouse and they came to you and said hey i. I'm having this problem you know. My wife had a cancer scare. She had many stroke and then We sort of know what's going on. Oh gosh i i don't know what to do. What would you do. Chances are you would be compassionate with them and we know fear versity they can make us feel really alone and we wonder why were the only ones feeling this way and what exactly is wrong with us and check chances are. There's nothing wrong with us at all. You know the there's this real problem with And with i within the veteran community that we all seem to think we're alone and the truth is were not and another reason why you need those strong relationships so you can remember. Hey i'm not alone this but practice self compassion be compassionate to yourself number four meditate and. I know that meditation sometimes gets a bad rap. But i will say. I've tried it myself meditation. Mindfulness and it is a wonderful stress. Reliever i will let you do your own research on that. But there is such value in meditation number. Five and this one is critically important. Cultivate forgiveness. And here's the thing. When it comes to a chronic condition of family member whether that's your spouse or child or your parent or or sibling you can sometimes get this. You can get mad right. And what is there to be mad at. Who is there to be mad at. Well you know you can be that nature you can be mad at god. You can be frustrated but holding a grudge is only going to hold you back. And and that expands far beyond just the Know caught debating forgiveness for forgiveness.

Could have supplies you as a. But i've i've done that i've done in the theater and i think i did it. Maybe inside but that's how you know you got to cut your hair shorter anyway because it's gotta fit well and they take some of the makeup artist to you know to put it on. And then he has to stick it on in. Oh so it stays in place if you have hair of you know length which i do. The hairstylist has to take the hair you have an pin it with a hundred thousand hairpins and that before. What's the False false head Over so it's a lot of that.

Do you remember what is when you are a fresh. You took the razor to your head. Yeah off i Interviewed for fill out of during. While i was i did a play where i shaved my head. So i had a shaved head. And i kinda wig kind of disordered brown hair And what was on. It was really very convincing the site war. Though to the interview i the lady was a bit tired of bossier in a millage bossie lady. I'm an owner. you know. and she's about it then she said of course a part he'll be playing the part of a monk and you'd have to shave your head and i just reached up.

Still working still performs on stage regularly still working in movies and tv. His newest film role is in senior moment. A romantic comedy. In which lloyd stars alongside jean. Smart and william shatner so i think that As an elder millennial myself you are most burned into my memory as the guy who's about to put roger rabbit into the dipa. You've had a number of iconic screen roles christopher but You know outside of maybe playing large margin pee. Wee's big adventure. I don't think there was any more terrifying character from my childhood. you could. yeah i could. I create grey pleasure knowing that. Guess what this is up to off the face of the call. My own design. Five thousand heated hop velocity pressurized water. Cannon i remember i see disney films when they i mean when walt disney was making them you know what way back in the fifties and those seem like every one of a there was a moment. That was absolutely horrified. Just drib nightmare material and people come up to me and Tell me the same story. That happened to them. When i saw that movie and just payback but i love. It has to be that. Put that little. Sue squeaky little shoot the dip But it was a wonderful fill. This is what i was thinking about. Because i watched it recently with my kids. I was really. I was really thrilled with how well it held up. I thought it was just as wonderful as an adult. As i had thought it was as a kid. Great but as i was watching it i was thinking. This movie is at like an unequivocal success. Like as this is a great film everything works. But then i was just thinking of all of these actors including you on a sound stage. You know probably holding a cube painted green when you're dipping the shoe into the dip. You know what. I mean right. Thought like all of these people like how did they convince themselves this kind of work. I know i well. They took a lot of pains to make it happen. I it was. It was a digital it. was you know. Every plate was painted drawn and all that and they had a they had. There was like three story. Old life factory building a few in london and was divided compartments at a big open space. And all these guys on women from everywhere thailand all around europe and asia australia you know in their make each cell. You know what. I'm saying is light straw. Anyway they had and then they had a guy who Comedian a damn. I can't think of his name of all. Who played roger rabbit off camera. So whenever you have words to say roger rabbit you talked to this guy. And he got himself all up in a crazy kind of roger rabbit kind of hostile and he had a voice. Roger rabbit's voice as he'd stare at him that was very helpful. You know the for that. And then they also had a rabbit.

Of course he would set up chairs or sevi- circle in front of on the floor and it They would be filled by actors all author she in effect and he would talk to us He be nurse. City where nurse ratchet would be city and he asked us a question and he had a sense of how to get things going and That was hill. You just kind of lived out the way it went people were talking about as you could interjected anytime in It was kind of cool. That i came up to a couple of times and then done that was that let's hear a scene from a taxi Which you know is a very long running sitcom about a group of new york city cab. Drivers one of them was by my guest. Christopher lloyd Reverend jim who is Kind of spaced out Sweet kook So i in this scene. the dispatcher. Tiny who's played by. Danny devito is Is there and jim is is at the garage. And he's just sitting down to a snack. Well boss. I'm back from my vacation. You didn't have brains while you're i wasn't really looked at well. Have cam for you in a minute. Goal of what's whole is cookies. They will big guy i fight. Hey nice surprise what are you talking about. I could be wrong. But i detect something in here. That's a lot more powerful than oatmeal. So when you got cast in taxi did you think of yourself as a comedy actor. I i knew it was written for police for comedy all that but i felt that i don't know i've just i've no i've ever really thought of myself in a particular way up comedy out or a dramatic actor whatever When it has things going. All when i'm i i'm i don't go up one way or the other. I just go up there and try to respond to the material and see what happens. I enjoy laughs. I was in a i. I was neil simon's play barefoot in the park. And i did that some stock cape may new jersey. So where the sixties and i was playing the robert Part bob or whoever it was. And i had the seniors highland had you know so we were in a couple of days of rehearsal director. Becca me over to the edge of the stage they have confidently told me chris. This is comedy i learned. I learned how you know when a made the adjustment every line and only just had to open your mouth and say them and you've got to laugh. Who's just written so well one of the things that i've heard from people who did audience sitcoms multi camera sitcoms over long periods of time now is that you learn a very particular kind of basically stage performance. Because not only are you. You know acting in front of an audience not only. Are you doing jokes in front of an audience. But often. In your you know your. They're doing the same joke a few times. Because there's you know multiple takes of of things in and you have to do. You're doing the same joke or a similar joke in front of the audience. You have to find a new wrinkle in it. You have to find something a little bit different. What was it like to do that over years. You know every week Go up in front of in front of an audience in and do those jokes. I don't know. Sometimes i've watched sitcom and i. I got a feeling that it looks like sitcom active or a sitcom kind of stale mechanical bit. Whatever and the last were kind of contrived and all so. I never wanted to end up that way. Doing something repeatedly you know like doyen every every week and it's no better than that auden holler. It had to have something exciting to it so And i left out at all. I i left out today into Overcoming prejudices and go up and worked out great reverend. Jim is such an iconic tv character. And you know was repeated on television ad infinitum. You know mike as as with me you know. By the time. I was watching tax. It was in reruns. But i've i've seen a lot of taxes.

Would you describe him as reckless. Cobb for the may never christopher lloyd. Welcome to bulls. I'm so happy to have you on the show. Well i should delighted. How did you get the idea that you wanted to be an actor as funny 'cause i've kind of dissipated if you might ask you that so i was figured over. I just remember back. Seventy is prayed. Something that If i felt threatened by the bigger boys or whomever whatever. I would Do something that was kind of. I dunno unexpected and it made them live for. They are abused van. Somebody asked me to be in a school play. This seventh rates grade is only. I did that a few times. Have subsequently it just kind of a coalesced after awhile cyanide triax. You studied at the neighborhood. Playhouse with sanford meisner. Who's you know one of the one of the greatest acting teachers of the twentieth century. And he was you know his method his famous map known as the meisner technique listening so essential to it. Like it's really like a system of teaching you how to be very profoundly present right. How did you end up there. And how did it change you as a as a performer. Well i did see you know some stop before. I went to the playhouse for awhile and to hear other actors talks about this place that place adviser for what i felt the way they talked about the name of the plows that where i wanted to go and just sort of so it's view of visor and accepted that he wasn't there for the first year which is a big surprise and he wasn't there for both years the play playhouse for two years. Now when i got out of it. I felt i really at all all the faculty were proteges. But it wasn't getting through Came out of it. I felt that. I still little bit where i was for. It started so miser came back and got started. Teach -i in at the playhouse and he had two classes each week. Outside of the playhouse. I went back to him. Started with those classes and he was fabulous. I just extraordinary. And i came out of getting what i wanted some or did you think you were going to be a theater actor forever. I began to wonder about it I wanted to fill by came to new york because i lived in connecticut and sylvia with the city. Having voted out of. I wanted to do film. But i just felt get a base the theater and i you know i really love feeder. My love going back to do a play. I feel i'm going home. You know just feels right and event. I started going for film Meetings and interviews. And i could tell the snuffy happening here and i just thought maybe i'm one of those actors who make the bridge from theater to screen you know and then cook s k through your to do some kathy at a director. I was good to be semi of all the time. Set me up. And that was that i think that when you're working in theatre often it is expected that you know you'll be able to transform yourself because you're working in rapper. You're working with a company and you're playing all kinds of different roles. It's really valuable to be able to do anything right and often when you're working on screen the direction of your career is determined by you. Know what you seem like when you walk into a room people taking one glance at you run deciding what kind of thing you are. What kind of thing you do. And i wonder whether when you started going up for film roles when you i mean you're a full-on grownup before you started doing screen work oil whether you had to like reckon with what people thought of you when you walked into a room over. Over time over time. I started to Make a real effort to be as much the character that i'm going to read for me for as i can without being annoying over something stupid just trying to really find the essence of it. I'm bringing it in hope that i convey that whether i do i heritage way what i dress an accent. Whatever but if i make.

Practical Advice On Using Python To Power A Business

"Interviewing christopher about how python is used to help manage business needs and processes in his work to share advice on this topic practical business python so chris can you start by introducing yourself. Hi tobias somebody. Was chris moffet. And i blog at practical business python which is dedicated to sharing examples of how you can use python to solve common business problems. I've been using python for probably a dozen plus years and was formally trained in electrical engineering in computer science but never actually been a computer scientists and most of my career has been on the business side. So that's where i've really enjoyed combining that business experience that python experienced. And that's a lot of what i'm trying to share at practical business python. Do you remember how you first got introduced python. I do maybe like a lot of other people had used some other languages. I did a little bit of work as a unix system administrator and did some scripting in pearl and exposure to other programming languages in the past and someone that i was working with said. Hey you might want to check out this python thing. It's pretty cool language. This was probably in two thousand one two thousand and two so relatively new. And i looked at it a little bit and thought you know this whole white space thing. It just didn't really resonate with me. I didn't think it was that good fit. So i passed fast forward about six or seven months and i was working on a windows system and needed to do some scripting and took another look at python started. Play with it for about half a day or so. Suddenly it just kind of clicked in my brain. Made a lot of sense and i've been using python in some way shape or form ever since. Then you mentioned that you've been using practical business python as an avenue to help educate people on some of the ways that the language is used to solve different problems within the business context. Motoring if you can just give a bit of an overview about your mission of practical business python and some of the back story of how you got started with it and what keeps you motivated after multiple years of blogging and writing resources to that particular segment of the system. So like i mentioned. I i got exposed to python this. Pre data science hype. If you will this was even probably before. Django was really getting started in the web space. So i use it a little bit from an administrative perspective. I also did a little bit of django work and then over time. I just stopped using thought so i didn't have a real good excuse or reason to use it on a daily basis. I wanted to find an opportunity to continue to use python explore the python ecosystem and maybe share some of that with people. So i thought you know maybe it would be a good idea to start a blog. And that's the genesis. A practical business python so i had this idea in middle of two thousand fourteen and i originally thought that i would maybe spend more time talking about things like raspberry pi so i was interested in that and i thought that would be a fun thing to learn in learning blog about but then i started to do a little bit more research to figure out what i wanted to write about in. That's when i discovered pandas started getting more involved with the data science world and is i continued that discovery process of learning about all these tools and figuring out how i could apply to my own problems. It just naturally flowed into blog articles. Where i could share that with people. And then what was really interesting is the feedback. I would get from people so once. I would post an article. I'd get feedback. All this is really helpful. This really clarified some concepts for me and that kind of creates that feedback loop that encouraged me to continue to create content and improve over time and to be honest that's really what sustains me now with the blog i guess two things one. I enjoyed learning. Enjoy learning more about what's going on in the world and how you can use all these really sophisticated tools that are out there and enjoy presenting it to people in a way that hopefully simplifies it and brings it down to the types of problems that they're dealing with and the feedback. I get from people when they say. Hey this is great. Here's a problem. I had or you help me save hours of work in my day job because if i thought and so i think those are the types of things that really sustain me going forward and you mentioned that you have a degree in electrical engineering and computer science. So you're familiar with the programmatic aspect but you also mentioned that your actual day to day is more on the business side of things. I'm wondering if you can just give a bit of context about some of the specifics of your role and some of the ways that you actually end up using python in your day-today so my specific day to day role is i work doing strategic pricing for a medical device company. Here in the us and what that means is it's a lot of data analysis taking a look at maybe third party or external data as well as our internal data in trying to figure out the most effective way to price our products in discount our products in the market. So i use python ally to build repeatable and scalable data analysis processes for myself. And the way i think of it is a lot of people would use excel to may be modeled. The data do the analysis in. I try as much as possible where it makes sense to use. Python and pandas in jupiter notebooks to do that ad hoc analysis in building in a way that's more repeatable so that once i've done in analysis one time it's easier to replicate for another product or another scenario. I wanna

"Can you talk about what that role endangered so as a minority being part of minority coalition. How does that actually would say you're planning. Events are one out of the types of responsibilities. you're kind of involved in shore. What for chris. Carr my role on is on of the committee and really is to help develop strong. And broad foot trenton. Targeted monastic communities by by really joe trying to facilitate interactions with community based organizations to include aftermarket universities. Darkly restore cabrera colleges. Hvac us that had a very long standing history of mistrust to some extent. And so i kind of summit up just to really increase bernardi representation in these conversations around christopher and engagement with a very strong focus on making sure we have diverse forces some of our listeners. Who may not know exactly. What could a split on this. Can you just in a few lines. Dealers about guzman on absolutely or christopher is is an organization that really focused on the compensation crispin and they do it from the perspective where they're not be. The four or guest technology did not pro con but to really have conversations as it relates to this technology in house being utilized many ways and the benefits and risks down a bowl and started out by uc berkeley in conversations. There which later a year after moved to boston and she'll hope these. These conversations are kind of women around the country at really sparing Lotta interests around. Christopher and i can say that they've been very diverse voices after just faded indiscretions discussions. That's a very interesting role in vegas to learn more about your experiences by doing this. Just one question before that. How did you get into you. Know the crisper fields specifically was your background and christopher. How did that come to be that. You are involved in organized crisper con is. It's all started. President obama launch of the precision medicine issue which was pm. I in two thousand fifteen. I was invited to be a part of that much and that pm. I initiative is a multi year multi million on effort that was developed to keach around creating a diverse cohort to trutv by disease treatment for all but that program is currently known as all of us program and so from that launch. I started the minority coalition for position mets. So you're speaking under the bit of audio experiences. As an event organizer being part of that rising committee on crisper con- you had mentioned that when pulling together some event it was really impossible for you to find black researchers in the area. So could you elaborate more on the garden. Status stakes are the neck of diversity that you are seeing in the field. Well just to be honest. You know this is that i think at this point is kinda shameful in subsets. Your article article that you've written highlighting some of top companies in fear. Know as you look at even these compromises need couples this leading the work around crisper. You can see most senior today. Shes clearly the lack of diversity that so evident in these companies. And i think what is sometimes hurtful. Is that in this crisper in some ways to successive crisper. Really an johnny outcome A black disease sickle cell disease which is driving an has driven a lot of interest at of course financial investments. And so i would say at this point. It's not looking very good chance of diversity

"Thing. This reality tv infotainment complex. It structures american political culture. Probably more than anything else like reality. Tv cable news tabloid news. Like it intersects. So you can't look at something like claudia conway going on american idol and just of dismiss it as a trivial story or like none of our business or whatever. It's a dark omen. Because they're all going to try to rehabilitate their careers this way. And then you also have the form of rehabilitation. That was attempted by members of the lincoln project then went on to say you know. I'm not gonna show you my finances. I'm not going to tell you what we're actually up to. You cannot trust these folks. You cannot trust dirty. Republicans who have a really horrible documented history. Like they're very likely not turning the page and seeing the light and embracing a moral position. Like i really wish they were. I think when someone does that when someone seeking redemption or they're seeking to turn their life around they act differently they would be going out and backing people like cece abrahams. They would be backing these movements for civil rights and not just like making cool. Ads are getting media attention or being pundits on cable like they'd be doing something much more meaningful and they'd be putting their money where their mouth is and they just don't they don't do that. It's just for them. And i know that's very disappointing for a lot of people but you gotta like open your eyes to these schemes and get out of this delusion. Heavy like noble republican party. I know nancy. Pelosi is out there calling for a quote strong. Gop takeaway from me senate impeachment hearings. It's not we have a kremlin asset backed by transnational crime ordering violent insurrection on the capital and getting away with it but need a strong gop even though the gop itself backed trump's support trump like we. Don't we need something different. Like we need an overhauled. Gop we needed gop like gutted from within and maybe turn into like. I don't know like a low key. Alex peaky party. Like i don't even know what its future like doesn't have a future. Because it's a fascist apocalyptic cult and it has no place in american politics. So i don't know why that's why that's her position anyway. Jim watson that friends don't let friends vote republican or it's the republican party gave us donald trump. It's extremely rare when a president loses the popular. Vote a win troll college. That has happened twice in our lifetimes. Both times republican. So it's been this whole fallout from the reagan revolution that we've been suffering under this whole lie. The gas lighting trickle down economics jesus exploded income inequality gap so all of these republicans. That became never-trumpers. You were part of the problem. A trump was your frankenstein monster and now you want to cash in on trying to curb your own creation where it's too late. He's unleashed once. You create a dictator once you empower them once. The culture has brainwashed tens of millions of people into voting for him. It's extremely hard to overcome bat. Were now living with this. And i think in terms of the reality television. It's it's the dumbing down of america. The rise of strong men are preceded by a dumbing down of mainstream media of television culture. You saw that with berlusconi in italy. He he threw his cronyism. Got all these regulations pulled back and he was able to buy up a bunch of tv networks and he dumped them down. He turned them into misogynistic. Weapons against women showing just scantily clad women and just a salacious reports and and so it's no surprise berlusconi runs for president and pretty easily wins because he set the stage for that through his trash tv culture. It's not surprising that you have the rise of far-right Authoritarian threat a white supremacist terrorist. Movement that was preceded by rupert murdoch. Having his way with our media landscape rupert murdoch the son of a eugenicist. And so it's a dangerous time. And that's why we're always screaming at the democrats to do more to use their power in congress to hold all these compelling hearings to extend the impeachment trial because they need to break through the wall of normalization. They need to break through the cage bars of far right propaganda in america and by using your authority which already an audience which already comes with built and press interest which is rare right. You have such a privileged hurt on which to protect us and help us. And if you're not using it to the fullest by must watch compelling tv by airing out the whole cast of characters from from steve bannon to flynn to michael flynn's brother pentagon that deliberately slowed down the much needed urgent response by the national guard as our capitals under siege. By not willing all this whole colorful cast of characters and bringing them out. They're not necessarily forcing them to testify but giving each of these guys their own investigation congress you would turn c-span into the new fox news people will be watching this and devouring the scandal and that's one of the things we don't understand is that we question all the time as you're in this reality. Tv climate the best reality right now is to come. After trump and investigate him people will eat up the fact that democrats are being timid containing the power there is extremely rating and the prospects for that for the upcoming election. Twenty twenty two. It makes me worried. It makes me worry that they're missing such a major opportunity and republicans are just gonna clobber them and twenty twenty two because the independent voters they need in these swing districts. Don't understand the urgency. Because if there's if there was an urgency surely somebody would be doing something about it surely. Christopher wright would be testifying before congress surely all of these characters are or adjacent characters to abandon flint and others would be forced to testify before congress. Surely they would be gripping testimony for the next two years and instead we're getting swept under the rug. We're getting a ram through a nasty clothes. He wants to dust her hands of us. And we cannot emphasize to you. How dangerous this is. You are allowing your opponent to relax. Stretch out their arms their fingers and enjoy making their next move. You have put the ball so firmly in the hands of trumpism and they're gonna have so much fun now out for you and it's it's horrible to live in this culture right now in the us. It's horrible to think. I have to protect my family. Not just from everyday life. Also the threat authoritarianism coming like we're living our life through this pendulum swing of Election cycles now and normally. It's it's okay. It's the republicans..

"And that's how these guys are playing us. It's controlled like. I don't know how people couldn't see this. You know we were very blunt about conway and also about just. Do not give the lincoln project your money that was the takeaway of every gasoline nation episode. Where we're named please god. Do not give them your money. Because this is a people who have a long history of terrible decisions of things. Like trying to launch the iraq war launched sarah palin screech and yes it is possible that republicans when greeted with donald trump could change their mind and could try to work for the greater good and when they said they were going to go put out ads. You know to try to convert republicans to vote for joe biden. And it's like okay. Whatever but over time it became very clear that that's not where the money was going. You know the lincoln project is falling apart for a number of reasons. The main reason is that founding member. John weaver as andrea just said is a sexual predator among his victims is a fourteen year old boy. Who is trying to solicit online the other members of the lincoln project new about this even though it was you know. This information was brought to the public Recently they knew since allegedly march of twenty twenty. You know it's a very long time to cover something like that up. Weaver state in the group until the summer. The bulk of the money that they made new and not to those ad campaigns which incidentally there's no proof those ad campaigns convinced anyone of anything they were basically preaching to the converted. They were getting you know some democrats and liberals all excited because for once it seemed like there might be some fighting them like if there's any takeaway here is that democrats like it. When people fight vehemently against trump and fight on their behalf which of course pelosi schumer and others refused to do and so they go and they embrace the lincoln project. A scam pack. Who was taking the money to enhance their personal wealth. For example departed members. Steve schmidt said that his goal was to create quote intergenerational wealth for himself and for his family. These guys raked in millions of dollars. Often from donations from democrats who again could have been donating to a variety of other groups. That actually need the money and actually do practical grassroots organizing to help vulnerable communities and help good candidates and they brought themselves mansions and the last thing they did. Is they posted private. Dm's between a reporter who was investigating the two things that i just mentioned. And it departed female lincoln project member who had complained about misogyny and complained about mistreatment and they posted them online until george conway kinda broke in and said hey guys like i think this is a federal offense for for you to do that. And then they deleted them but the damage was done and the mask off. The hostility was out there. You know there are a variety of people in the lincoln project or supporting it. I think summer worse than others. I think one of the worst is george conway and anyone who fell for this. Little james carville. Mary whatever her name is from the nineteen ninety s rehash of like. We're a democrat and republican. But we get along. And we're a couple like it's a reality tv. Show plot kellyanne conway. Obviously as andrea said is trump's gurgles. George conway a federalist society member was never on the right side here and was never trustworthy and trump would have gotten rid of kellyanne conway long long ago if george conway we're not actually on trump's side and the fact that people can't see this it's like trump. Does this all the time. He let michael wolff who has long served as a kind of tabloid pr guy for various nefarious actors. From new york. City like jeffrey epstein for example he let him hang out in the white house for a couple of years to write a book that use the prime trump tactic which is cover up crime with scandal. They want you to think he's stupid. Incompetent obnoxious disgusting. Whatever as long as you don't think that he's a criminal and as long as you don't bring forth criminal consequences. The conway family understands this tactic extraordinarily well and they're using it to their benefit through social media and now on tv. And so that brings me to claudia conway who whatever you think about. This is a victim of this situation. You know the claudia conway situation is like a vortex where the trump talk crecy meets the britney spears documentary and you realize that people didn't learn anything from any of them conway. Claudia of course became well known because she would post tiktok videos claiming that her parents both of them were abusing her and calling for emancipation. And somebody else. She showed the abuse. She taped kellyanne conway abusing her. That's one of the reasons that kellyanne conway left the white house. And george conway left the lincoln project in the fall of last year but no one ever intervened into this family. No one ever looked at the abuse instead they put her on. tv which is making people. Wonder was this all staged. Was claudia conway. Herself acting out this family drama on tiktok as a prelude to maximize profits on tv. As i'll just say either way. She is a victim of abuse. If she's being abused by kellyanne george conway in which. I find likely then. She's an abused child if she's being told to act out parental abuse and then go on a national stage to profit off of it that she's abused again. That's just another form of exploitation and it's so depressing that we have all these conversations about the exploitation of teenage girls know. We saw it with brittany spears. There's been a conversation about the treatment of princess. Diana we we go through this over and over again and of course you know. There's been a lot of talk because of me too about teenage victims. In about people. Like evan rachel wood recently came out about marilyn manson and his abuse of her when she was a teenager. Teenage girls are in a vulnerable position. No matter what when they're dealing with predatory adults when they're surrounded by them even if those adults are claiming that they're acting on their behalf you know they're not is so this whole situation is so depressing and so disgusting and i just hope people don't fall for it like please stop falling for the same tricks over and over. Please stop falling for scandal covering crime for reality tv normalizing a criminal family that is how donald trump got into office by the way he got into office because of the apprentice because a lot of people fell for that image of him as a tycoon. He was using his apprentice. Properties to launder money. Which documented in my book hiding in plain sight and he was also backed by mark burnett. Whose first choice for reality. Tv show was putin like this is an actual serious.

"Like i'm very worried about what's going to happen in texas especially but also some of the surrounding states over the next few days It's a personal worry for me. Like my sister lives there. she lives in dallas. She hasn't had power since six o'clock last night and she's in her house with two children and they can't drive on the roads and they took every precaution they could but home simply aren't built that way and there are people much worse off than her. You know there are homeless people. There you know very poor people. There are people who there's going to be death from this guy vent and it's a horrible tragic sign and it's just a sign of how urgently we need like federal intervention but we also need to figure out something about states like texas. Which of course has its own grid. And they took great pride in having its own grit and they have made some moves towards green energy and so forth but you know texas z. Oil powered state. That's where they're politicians get their profits so they're very reluctant to kind of embrace say sensible climate change policy. But we're going to be having more and more of this in the years to come like even as i record the show from saint louis. It's like a wind chill out. There have like negative fifteen. And i'm just hoping that. I'm not in the rolling blackout while we're recording so couple of other thoughts. They didn't get to in the episode. Where's the fbi. Like this is something. I've been wondering now for over a month. Why does it seem that. The fbi is not investigating people like flynn and stone and bannon and lynnwood even though they blatantly Helped organize and participate in these attacks. You know putting their words in their endorsement in the public domain. Where is christopher ray. Why has he not held. Press conferences on the tax. Why are we not getting regular updates from our government on an investigation of our own capital. You know if you were old enough for nine eleven you may remember like not a day went by for like a year where we didn't hear of some development in the investigation of the nine eleven attacks constant here we actually had a breach of our capital with five people dead and people threatening to assassinate our representatives and they are quiet. If i were biden i would fire ray so i wonder why is biden keeping him on and what exactly is the fbi. Doing we have a very troubling history of the fbi for like the last basically thirty years where we had james comey. who has. We've reminded you many times to the head of the russian mafia off. The fbi's top ten most wanted list right when donald trump was gearing up his election and people like michael. Flynn were meeting with putin in russia. In december twenty fifteen. That's when he removed semion mughal each then. Of course Ignored calls from people like harry reid to investigate trump's connections with russia and make those connections. You know publicly known to the united states before the election instead he just concentrated on hillary's emails we also had previous fbi directors williams sessions and louis freeh who went onto work for the russian mafia ask consultants after being the fbi which is a very strange thing to do as an fbi director. You have plenty of career options like why would you choose to work for the people who were just warning. We're the most dangerous and violent in the world and who were set money money money money money money. You could make so much money being slightly less corrupt like you could just go work for you. Know some other gross organization like why does it have to be the russian mafia and then of course there's muller who is the head of the fbi. While epstein was running around manafort was running around. You know molar. Basically helped suppress information that was in the nine eleven investigation about the role of saudi arabia. In probably other countries and their involvement in those attacks like he's a cover up guy so we have this continuum and ray to me at least seems like he is part of that continuum of covering up deep seated institutional rot infiltration of our institutions by organized crime and complicity primarily the republican party but to some extent the democratic party is well Particularly just in terms of negligence of refusing to stop these threats about which they are warned. You know many many times. This applies to basically every democratic administration of my lifetime. And so there's another thing too with the fbi where we've seen them tweeting out like have you seen this guy and it's like some you know low level cunanan acolyte wearing a maga- cap like looking all crazy. Who they have not called to pursue are the high level stormtroopers. The you know. The people who folks like roger stone and michael flynn and so forth have been interacting with cultivating as operator is operatives. For years and years people like allie alexander who just called for a civil war yet again despite his open participation in this violence direction people like a jones who has been beating this violent conspiracy theory drum for years working with trump working with the administration and then other people who are known as the quote unquote all right. They do not seem interested. In holding these people accountable. They're not even talking about them just like they're not talking about stone manafort flynn etc. It's like they're afraid or visit one or the other. What it comes down to is. The fbi is acting as if they are protecting all of these individuals and protecting the wider transnational network. That is behind them. Which extends into russia into the uk and israel saudi arabia and so forth. You know this is not in all american insurrection. You know obviously many people just joined it because they really really liked donald trump and they thought he would protect them if they went and stormed the capitol for him. But we also had really sophisticated operatives. You know people. Like roger stone who've been in this game for forty years since nixon trying to take down america and are willing to work with anyone from any country to do it and it's very disturbing to me that the fbi just seem to be making no effort in this respect someone should take the footage of the sea of white people storming our nation's capital and cgi or whatever to turn all those white people pulled to black and brown people and then send it to the fbi and see if they do anything about it. Finally maybe. although allie alexander is black. Believe i mean certainly not white. And they're just like looking the other way. I mean i think it's the embrace of white supremacy. It doesn't matter what your actual skin color is or what your ethnicity is as long as you are willing to back white supremacy as a concept you know as a precept for how the united states should be governed. Then they're cool you. That goes all the way back to the days of j. Edgar hoover like we've got some deep problems in the fbi but gone without question. They obviously at this was a black lives matter siege on the capital. Which would never happen but it was. We would have a much different national response. United federal response press conferences and chris wray would-be likely speaking. This feeling of this was such a big deal. Surely someone would be doing something about it. And that was the same crisis of normalization. Were against with the rise of donald trump and twenty fifteen twenty six teen a guy who was dependent on dirty russian oligarch money who's trump tower was a russian mafia dorm whose campaign chairman worked for a decade for the kremlin in ukraine and against us interests. Surely if donald trump was so mobbed up in the pocket of kremlin interests. Somebody would have done something about it and we're up against that now..

"I May. I I want to extend. The. Another kind of talking about what whether. So yeah, I love the rules or the framework is laid out to the to the protagonist and is actually included in the trade and I wonder whether that is a sort of box checking thing to make sure that we need this in the trailer because that's going to be kind of the main marketing thing and We don't release want to release much in the way of synopsis or any real detail beforehand. So This'll give people enough to kind of latch onto and there's a very there's a very kind of almost throw away what's not throw away is this. Quite almost trivial line in there about preventing world war three or something, and which is kind of like it's a nice sound bite but actually it's nothing to do with the film until. into in terms of that, being for it through the kind of. Genuine threat it's like. You know. I think it's interesting and actually massive into the film's advantage that he kind of has that and then quickly dismisses it and even even we're talking about the. You know the title of the film and people have been trying to decipher what it means and I I think the best thing to say is it just doesn't matter. It could be it could be literally any word. Kind of against briefly defined and explained to John David Washington's character but then you Hear it more than once or twice more in the film. Talking about this idea of the threat level Is Interesting because I think one of the things that Christopher Nolan does well is. Create a sense of creates this kind of like earth shattering sense of threat and I think in in the writing here he is. He is maybe suggested his his Co.. like obviously like become the cliche of like action movies and. big blockbuster movies where there's some kind of threat to the earth of in a world. War Three is almost a cliche You know it's it's like nuclear destruction is asteroids you know what? Whatever? And I think it's interesting that he is like. Created. This. This form of destruction, which is kind of complete the unique. And and you know you you you actually kind of. A bit more invested in this in this in this idea of destruction it's it's it's it's very over the top on and make maybe it might seem little to weed and conceptual to hit home but like I think One of the things I was watching I was thinking about watching this and and from having re watched inception recently is that there's a lot of talk about. How Oh Christopher Nolan should do a bond film? And Crisp and other than himself has professed to be a huge fan of bond had has has spoken about the recent films. And the me it just seems like one of the most pointless things as because I think he's he's basically. What what his, what? He's been able to do with his own personal projects. Is make these like bond films but the the don't have this of shackles of of this bombed world. The have the things that you have to do and the physics and the the bodies and the and that the threat of well destruction like. What Like what more like? I can I can have bond and more. You know what? Why would I need to do bond I mean obviously light students. Sorry. I was GONNA say even with ten. To all intensive posters, he's basically made a James Bond film like Robert Patterson's character is is essentially James Bond, but he's not the main character. Yeah I I would agree with that I mean. Let. Let's let's talk talk about the the characters in the performance is a bit. So, John, D. Washington I mean for me. He really carries in the lead. He's amazing. Given he's he's he's relatively fresh on the scene I mean he's he's of AC-. A few films now and Black Klansman was kind of his breakout a few years ago. But this feels like a real step up for him. And he's just Really actually I think carries the carries the film emotionally as well. I do think the. Sentimentality to kind of creeps in. Regarding. Sort of I guess his. His mission and his idea of like why he's them what he's doing. I think if you're going to have that, you really follow through with it and it really is pay off and I don't know about you. But I felt like the way that was gonNA leading. It was really going one way and it's kind of quite more cushion the end and actually I didn't really care about that. I mean there's there's another character who? You know we can talk about with Vicki's character she and I think she she's really remaining presidents and I think those quite love good work here with with a very limited role but you know her her personality trait is basically she's a mother and she loves her son and that's kind of it. And I think that's that's that's a little bit disappointing. Know there's there's been criticism of Nolan's. Writing female characters in the past. Specifically. kind of Marion. Cotillard. Inception I don't think he's this kind of massive improvement on that. I mean I probably would say that. Yeah I mean marrying courtiers character in inception was like purely symbolic And? you know I think introduced this idea of like you know. Him having these kind of female characters who kind of it's it's basically about male characters. Braying over female characters and a about some ways that they've grown them all of awesome some at sunset. that. in this one yet I think there's a similar slightly one dimensional. ELEMENT TO DEBAKEY'S CHARACTER But I would say. In its favor that she definitely does have more agency, she's definitely a bigger part of the film You know she she she has her moments. Yes. She she she she she's out she. You know she's not just some kind of sideline thing that is, is it just? Kind of just the main protagonist is involved with that huge at she kind of in the in the main plot with the main characters. Can we talk about the? Extended from talking about the performances in not. So that I don't think it's surprise or sports. Michael Cain is in this film briefly. and. Based, very funny. The way the way he kind of appears in this film and there's there's there's absolutely no reason for it, but he's basically like eating a plate of chips. and. And I kind of wonder whether whether that was a reference to anything or all like whether it was intended to be kind of joke because it's is very straight. He has this quite important scene where you can't really understand what you're saying because he's got mouth chips. It's quite funny. I thought it was this ACTA challenge you. No. I'm going to deliver this monologue while while chomping on chunky chips. Suggested it. Yeah. Yeah. Like like like Tom Hardy would suggest an accent. This is like Cain saying, why didn't I do this scene while like. Scoffing chips. When you know you talk into a bag of chips and there are a little bit too hard and you end up kind of. He's almost doing that. Yeah you know it's like. It's sort of funny because ultimately what what he's saying is you know it's not that important. You Watch that scene and not necessarily catch every single syllable and still understand what was happening well now, he is very much a kind of like. Linking seen if you've been if you know if you if you thought, don't need Michael Caine in this movie. It would have been the first easiest thing to to law POW but you know he's kind of..

"Hey. Everybody is John here I? Hope you're. Enjoying your summer here in the states, we've got our fourth of July holiday coming up and I know it's just been crazy. I'm you normally Chris and I do the summer break and he gets to go somewhere off the grid for a week and I usually go see some family up in Michigan and get a chance to get away, but with the coronavirus here we're locking down and still looking forward to just hiding in my backyard and enjoying it so. We don't have a show for this week, but what we do have. Is that Christopher? Lockhead came to me a couple of weeks ago and was asking if he could run the Kevin meaney interview that we had just done over in his feed, and he was asking if I would like to swap and of course I I was just thrilled. Because we've had Christopher on the show, he is a mentor of mine has helped me out over the years, and it's just a fantastic storyteller, and as soon as he mentioned this. This I knew that we would want to get his interview with Rick. Manner and use that and so that's what got you here. It's about an hour and fifteen minutes, and he goes to town, but it's just fantastic. Rick is the kind of guy who does ad campaigns that get CEOS fired at the competitors of the clients, so there's just a bunch of fun stuff here that you're gonNA love. I was just blown away by this interview, and so I'm psyched to get a chance to give it to you now. Now just before we get started to a disclaimer, there is some salty language here. If you're afraid of the bomber, it's going to cause a problem. You might want to just skip this episode, but I it's definitely worth it. If you can put up with it, let me tell you that, so thanks to Christopher, and of course his show is also sponsored by net sweet, so if you want to check out and it's we wait till next week when I run my spot, so we've got a marketing over coffee link. But again we want to thank sweet for sponsoring both of our shows, and being a great supporter of podcasting in general and I'm going to go back on vacation. If you've got anything going on feel free to hit me up on twitter at John Jay Wall I, would love to hear from you and see what's going on, but otherwise enjoy this story with Christopher.

And we're for people with curious minds for people who enjoy fun powerful and saiful, sometimes silly or even per per spurs. Conversation you're going to have a podcast. You should really learn how to talk. Our. Goal is to go far beyond the traditional business podcast We don't specialize quick tips or tricks or soundbite. He Click Beatty things. Our goal is to have real conversations with some legendary people that you already know and some legends. Hopefully you'll love getting to meet for the first time. we do not add it or produce this. PODCAST, that is to say the conversation that you hear with. Our guest is the conversation that happened. And our hope is that you have an eavesdropping experience, and that's different than the traditional interview show and a traditional interview show you know there's a professional host you know. The guest is driving their three media trained talking points, and so you always know you're listening to a show. Our hope is that you forget that here that you have an eavesdropping experience during the conversation an experience that draws you in hopefully inexperience. You WanNA share with others. And what our long-term listeners tell us. Is that if you listened throughout? At some point during the conversation, you'll notice that you shift from having an eavesdropping feeling to actually feeling like you're in conversation. And That's really cool. And I hope that's the experience that you have and as the experience. We. Want you to have now on this episode. This is our fourth in our four part series on marketing.

This fucking IAMBIC. Pentameter savvy is like all right. He knew our although no. It's Pamela asteroid no she. She's Writing Pamela isn't technically on Yup Also I will say the way that they that they that Christopher Pike writes. The seance is very scary. Like I was like don't do this. I was very relieved when it would mostly yes or no and only a few words and that he didn't do the dash between each letter. Yeah I loved that and I love our. It was made it easier and we're still understood what was happening also. This book is unique in that. A lot of the chapters are very short really short and it's not like traditional full page. No Yeah it's just like seconds see myself as a teenager being like this is cool. I I'm sure that I thought that I have read this but I didn't. I'm not really loan But yeah I I appreciated that. He was just like long the Ouija boards. Answers are just going to be an italic so you just have to like you know you'll get it you get. It was letter by letter but like yeah I rest to. I respect your intelligence So the OUIJA board is like I'm from Egypt go. I'm scared. I'm drawing here by one of you but I care for like all of you like nightmare and they're like all my childhood. We also Mary. Mary's being so coy Sushi's like I was not where Jerry was winter. He got killed but guess what? Y'All she's lying she's Fucking Liar. She's lying through her fucking teeth She's also a murderer straightened out or at least an attempted murderer. That's weird. I do feel like like the first half of the book is kind of one book and then the second half goes like off the rails not in a bad way but like Mary feels like a different character and suddenly. It's like zero to sixty well. Yeah I think reserved I guess she kind of is right because she like wakes up sort of I mean. She's like slowly waking up on on fucking denial. She's like Because as soon as she has that dream this girl's different when she's like dreaming about the ancient Egyptians and like her being an ancient alien. Because guess what guys.

Underneath a lot of she was trapped in the tomb with him for like five thousand years or more question question question mark or the whole yeah Because I was a little confused that shook out I was like wait so but I think it's one of those things that it's just like Do many things can be true? You don't have to know we don't have to have no. That's fine a world where everything is explained is a world that's less interesting. Okay Creator loss. Really just kidding you can't just set things up and then never pay. Do I do appreciate when books are like It's open ended like I like that. Yeah when things are kind of ambiguous. I'm like ooh interesting. But when you like set something up and then you just Yup. It allowed loss. Yes that's the thing I feel like if it's an like mystery. Yes acuity as well because it's intentional one is being intentional and ones being fucking sloppy. Yes and Ya'll and being like. Oh who cares is respect back to the audience. So Mary She she has these dreams that like okay. She and this is true. She's an alien She's she came to Earth with her partner clack store and she saw humans and she's like. Oh my God.

"The reporter he said Cold Christopher to ask for a comment on the murder of his parents? Christopher said that this was the first he heard of the attack he then called the police department who confirmed with the reporter had told him but informed Christopher that his mother wasn't fact still alive in the hospital in North Hi my name is Chris Forego call by Union saying that parents I found that fascinating on information from my Vanturi. I'm at school in Rochester New York. I in a dorm there tuncay. Do you have a dorm name our because Monroe okay you're hearing from the Times Union. They called me tonight. Parents are found I guess that into our anything may have some more information for you. Christopher left the university in Rochester and rushed back to Donmar as surgeons attempted to reconstruct Jones face and skull Christopher PORCO was taken to the police station and questioned for six hours. Your mother is communicating. Detective detective voltage told Christopher okay he replied the detective added she saying you were there at the house. I don't know why she would say that. Christopher replied modish pressed. She knows what happened but Christopher didn't flinch which I hope she does. I was not there. Christopher told detective bowed ish that he was sleeping in the lounge of his his dormitory at the time of the attacks I love my parents dearly he told police Christopher for PORCO cooperated fully consenting to have DNA samples taken and to a full physical examination but there wasn't a mark mark on him for Anzac analysis of the crime scene found no fingerprints and no blood other than the victims the house or on the murder weapon investigators checked Christopher's yellow jeep for traces of blood but it was clean when police looked for evidence of whether Christopher had driven his yellow jeep on the highway on the night of the murders they found no no record of his Ez pass going through the toll that night then a new lead came in Peter Porco had once received a death threat from a man who had lost custody of his children in a case before the New York State Supreme Court the man man had vowed to shoot Peter Porco and the judge but when detectives investigated the threat they found that the man had an airtight alibi there was also a series involving a family member who had been jailed for organized. I crime a former loan. Shark named Frank Frankie the firemen Porco a great hunk of Peter's police thought that may be Frankie the firemen had been considering ragging on his associates. Perhaps perhaps Peter was murdered with the firemen's acts as a warning not to talk but Frankie PORCO was was in jail specifically because he refused to cooperate so the theory fell apart police followed lead after after lead all were dead ends but while they still had no physical evidence against Christopher Porco investigators now believed ah that they had discovered his motive Peter and Joan Porco had recently taken out life insurance policies totaling totaling one point one million dollars and Christopher had recently sought out investment device from a financial santeuil counselor. He told them that he was about to inherit millions of dollars from a relative then investigators learned not before the security system in the PORCO home was smashed the code had been typed in deactivate the alarm the attacker had smashed it in order to cover his tracks the case against Christopher PORCO WHO's coming together three weeks after the attack. Joan Porco woke up but now Jones said that she had no memory of the attack in fact Joan now insisted that Christopher was innocent. What detective Bo dish hadn't forgotten he and everyone who had been in that room saw Joan confirmed that her son Christopher had been her attacker are there joan had suffered memory loss due to her traumatic injuries or she she was protecting her son but she herself had pointed the finger at Christopher Porco and police were not about to just let it go? Oh Joan Porco wrote a desperate letter for publication in the Albany Times Union defending her son Christopher's innocence. I am absolutely positive that my son Christopher was in no way involved with this heinous crime I employ the Bethlehem police and the district attorney's Office to leave my son alone and to search for Peter's real killer or killers so that he can rest in peace and my sons ends and I can live in safety the Albany County District Attorney said of Joan Porco position. It's not uncommon for victims of certain crimes to not wish to cooperate with law enforcement or not to agree with the direction action of an investigation we have victims of domestic violence who often display those same sentiments in this case Mrs Porco Oh certainly has our sympathy but we are going to continue along our investigation until we bring a person to justice for her and the death of her husband the Year Long Investigation occupy detectives statewide police probed more than six hundred leads but all of the evidence pointed to Christopher on Friday November fifth two thousand five almost a year a year after the attacks Christopher Porco was indicted for the murder of his father Peter Porco and the attempted murder of his mother Jones.

"o. christopher" Discussed on The Filmcast

"Knew that Christopher Robin was a terrible irredeemable father, and and that moment was when he knows all his daughter wants is for him to hang out with her, can't because he's got so much to do so little time and then Poos like come through the portal with me and he's like a fucking, I'll go to the. Rather than spending a second with his daughter, he goes, yeah. What's the worst that could happen knowing full? Well, there's no time difference through the portal. He's going to literally have some issues with time and he's still fine with. He's going to go through the portal and just, you know, reminisce with old bear rather than do the right thing, which is go and hang out with his daughter, which you could easily have done. He is a comically terrible father, like it is. It is hilarious how bad he is such a bummer. If you watched last year's goodbye Christopher, Robin, which was about his actual life about how his parents actually really sucked. And it's just, oh, it's such. It's not. These are not the things I wanted my head. I just I just want my little Pooh bear like singing about rain clouds and being, you know, balloon carrying little dope. I things there. But again, I I think we're, we're basically done talk about this, but it's just like the moment when other people see PU interacting with the real world, right? Jeff, like you've described it as a horror film, they're all linked. I agree. It also forces me to like re contextualised the entire rest of the film until that point. So PU has teleportation powers as well. Right? Because you can like e can open that portal. Like wherever I, it just like, I mean, does thinking power seems is just he has control over, which I don't think he does. Like if we're going to go that deep into the text of the movie, I think it's just that like I don't pretend to understand it something about Honey and childhood. I don't know what I was like through just just for clarity sake for the for the sake of our audience. We should step through the moments the what thirty years between the last time Christopher Robin leaves. And the next time we see Pooh bear there evidently has been a horrible. Series of events in the hundred acre wood. There has been some sort of perceived threats of of what are they called, but that would that is before that's covered in the opening. But this time because Christopher Robin's not there, it literally caused the destruction of all their homes and just als- toppled, right? Am I getting that wrong? I think they were all at a tea party in our house in the truth and the the house fell over. He made it sound like it happened before Kristie. You really minimizing the horror. Yeah, that's a question question. The whole home before. Christie hold on. Hold on. Let's finish making this point which is that this is a horrifying Jeff. Regardless of what has happened. The hundred acre wood. Let's not ignore the fact that Christopher Robin abandoned his animals, his stuffed animals for thirty years. Yeah, thirty years like just leads. Yeah, I mean, and we never ever see alll or rabbit again. I mean after they after the alums said. Yeah. Some of them. We see them again right at the end. Any Chrissy organ I wanted to ask you guys, especially Jeff, like, do you think this is a movie that children will enjoy? 'cause I was surprised at the screening. I went to often with Disney movies. You see a lot of kids there. I saw one. Glad you brought this up on my guy because I almost forgot to mention an anecdote. But I will..
