Ilhan Omar Speaks Out On Her Twitter Scandal, Anti-Semitism, and a Progressive Foreign Policy

"There is an interest in putting us in a box of constantly defending our identities. And I am not interested in being in the box. I'm interested in defending my ideas, and not my identity. I'm Mandy Hudson. Welcome to deconstructed. We have an exclusive on the show today. Ilhan Oma freshman House Democrat and one of the first two Muslim American woman ever elected to congress talks to me for the first time about how she found herself in the middle of that huge control Vesey of antisemitism. She tells me why she's opposed to US intervention in Venezuela. And she makes it very clear that she won't be believed either by right wing critics all by far right death threats. It's her first national and first broadcast interview since she hit the headlines earlier this month, the purpose of the apology was to make sure that the people who were hurt felt understood and hurt and leaving the tweets up. No longer would be part of that. I wanted to make sure that we made amends this week congresswoman Ilhan Oma on antisemitism, and Islamophobia on a pack and Israel and on the fight for a new progressive foreign policy. She's fast becoming a household. Name. Omar has been in the news for all sorts of reasons. Good and bad in recent weeks. She's been targeted by a white nationalist domestic terrorist. Lieutenant Christopher hasn't made a hit list of prominent members of the Democratic Party, including Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar and last weekend two pair of idiotic outright. Social media activists. One of whom has since been suspended from Twitter turned up in her district to try and find evidence of Islamic radicalism and no-go-zones for non Muslims. Spoiler alert. They failed earlier this month. Almost shook up the Washington foreign policy establishment by challenging veteran warmonger and genocide denial Elliot Abrams, he of Iran, contra, El Salvador, death, squads infamy, when he turned up in front of the house foreign affairs committee on which she now sits to talk about his new role as the Trump administration's pointman on Venezuela. In nineteen Ninety-one. You pleaded guilty to two counts of withholding information from congress regarding your involvement in the Iran cortra- affair, I felt understand why members of this committee or the American people should find any testimony that you give today to be truthful vodka respond to that wasn't a question the ground Abrams had never been challenged like that. And certainly not by a black Muslim woman in a head scarf. But of course, the main reason almost being in the headlines is for a pair of the controversial tweets congresswoman jury firestorm of criticism when she replied to a tweet by journalists Glenn green wall by implying that politicians support Israel for campaign donations, quote, it's all about the Benjamins baby. Then in response to this tweet would love to know who ill Ilhan thinks is paying American politicians to be pro Israel, Omar tweeted again. Apec those comments now bringing combination from the left and the right to be suggesting that somehow members of congress are being paid off by Jews by APEC. It's absolutely shameful. Speaker Nancy Pelosi leader, cine Hoyer and many others. Now, they say that they can dim what she has said congresswoman Omar's use of anti semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel supporters as deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks, and we call upon congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize. Oma? Did apologize unequivocally? The following day saying she was willing to step back and think through the criticism that she received from some Jewish figures, but a tweets about a pack and about the role money plays in securing support for Israel for members of congress, kicked off a massive control ac- about what is and what is not anti semitism. Look, antisemitism is very real in the United States right now, an anti semitic tropes involving Jewish money in secret Jewish cabals running the world a role too real. To be clear personally. I do not believe ill Halama was trying to be all thought, she was being anti semitic. She naively thought she was highlighting a powerful and reactionary lobby group. No different to the NRA, but the pylon against OMO, a young black Muslim refugee immigrant woman. Lest we forget has been ludicrously disproportionate and at times, I think hysterical. And then there's the hypocrisy of some of the folks leading the attacks on her and trying to take the high ground on religious, bigotry and anti semitism. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer joined with house, speaking unsee, Pelosi to condemn Omar for her quote, deeply offensive and hurtful and prejudicial tweets. The same Chuck Schumer who's been an apologist for Israel's brutal and racist occupation for decades decades here he is speaking at where else the APEC policy conference last year and explaining why he blames the Palestinians and only the Palestinians for the failure to get peace in the Middle East. Of course, we say it's on land the towards says it, but they don't believe in the toll road. So that's the reason there is not peace. Kevin mccarthy. The Republican House minority leader who's been trying now for a while to get both Oma and her fellow Muslim congresswoman Rashida tell Abe punished by the House Democratic leadership for supporting the boycott Israel movement. Put out a statement in the wake of the Oman tweets condemning quote, harmful tropes, and stereotypes. Mccarthy is the same guy who put out a tweet of his own last year around the same time as George Soros was getting a pipe bomb in the mail, a tweet he later deleted accusing three Jewish billion as George Soros Tom star in Michael Bloomberg of trying to buy the midterms for the Democrats. I guess McCarthy is an expert on harmful tropes and President Trump weighed in as well demanding Ilhan Oma resigned from congress. Antisemitism has no place in the United States Congress her. Name apology. And that's what it was. It was lame. And she didn't mean a word of it. Was just not appropriate. I think she should resign from congress, frankly. But at a minimum she shouldn't be on committees. Sorry, we're supposed to take lectures on antisemitism from Donald Trump from Donald Trump. This is what Trump said in twenty fifteen to a group of Republican Jewish donors. I don't want you money. Therefore, you're probably not going to support me because stupidly you wanna give money. Trump doesn't want money. But that's okay. You want to control your own politician? That's fine. That's not worth resigning over. Yeah. Donald Trump who once said he wanted short guys in Yarmolenka's counting his money who used to keep a book of Hitler's speeches on his bedside table who was president publicly praised Neo Nazis. Charlottesville who were chanting Jews will not replace us. That group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You freaking kidding me. Come on, the world's go, Matt. Ironically, it was left to Representative max rose, a Jewish democrat who was one of the first members of congress to condemn Oma for tweets. But who then accepted her apology? It was left to him to point out the ridiculousness and the shamelessness of the Republican attacks on her and also the awfulness of the media coverage. Kevin McCarthy said that it was Bloomberg Soros styro- pulling the strings behind to hide the sees Lenny. And their caucus stayed United and had his back, and none you called them out on that that caught is camping chicken shit in the face of antisemitism either. So seriously, you're not agents in the Republican you'll not agents of the Republican party in many ways though, sadly too many journalists. Wittingly or unwittingly have become agents of the Republican party with both sides ISM their constant lazy indulgence of cynical bad faith attacks on the left, and especially when people of color from the right and their inability to call out shameless Republican hypocrisy, whatever your views on Israel, anti semitism that much has been made very clear to all of us in recent weeks. My guest today is the woman who is being in the eye of the storm congresswoman Ilhan Oma who was elected to the house. Lost November hers was a historic victory in many ways, the refugee who arrived in the US age twelve unable to speak English, but ended up becoming the first Somali American in the first ever Muslim woman and a head scarf to be elected to congress. She's also part of a new cohort of house members loudly pushing the Democrats to the left Ilhan Oma, thanks for joining me on deconstructed and can for having me, congratulations on your historic election to congress. You are one of the first two Muslim American women to ever be elected the first Somali American to be elected, the first refugee from Africa to be elected, but not everyone is pleased to see so many women people of color Muslims. Progressives elected to high office last week. We learned of a United States Coast Guard Lieutenant who prosecutors say had plans to carry out mass murder. He was found with a massive weapons cache at his home. And he had a hit list of. Liberal politician to he wanted to kill which included your name on it. What was your reaction when you heard you on his kill list? I was relieved to know that he was behind prison. But what about you being on that list? Because there does seem to be this weird obsession with you on the right? I don't punt the liberal left, especially on the right right now who seemed to be obsessed with you basically turned you into this kind of boogeyman online to the point where outright social media to turn up with God's in your hometown of Minneapolis last weekend, looking for you and for evidence of ISIS and no-go-zones for non Muslims. It's becoming a hysterical. It really is hysterical. I mean, I'm five three in weight. I think under one hundred pounds. So to have these these people who are. Afraid of me. It's kind of fascinating a lot of people aware of the kind of crazy racist is on the phobic abused at you. And Rashid a lab of Michigan have received since arriving here in congress. Incited some argue by some congressional Republicans by the president of the United States. What does that been like for you the incessant hostility the abuse you'll start getting cold death threats? I mean, I think if you look at it within the context of what we are trying to do it sort of feels like it comes with the territory. I mean, we're we're shifting. I think of the idea of who should have a seat at the table desisto. He's really weren't build for people like Rasheeda and myself, and I think we can spend a lot of time focusing on the doors that we have to open and keep open or let this deter us. And I think that's what they would like us to do. They would like us to be afraid. The would like. Us to shrink. But Rashid denier are quite use to believe in. We've always be in beliefs. And I think the people in our district's, I know the people in our district's who voted for us knew that we were the right people to come here and shake things up, but this is beyond politics. And checking these out you now have a literal target on your back. How much you have to worry about your safety right now. I'm a I'm a person of faith. So I know that I will leave this earth when the time comes, and I know that there is important work for me to do. And so I'm focused on that your critics some of your die hard. Opponents would say that you've brought a lot of this animal St. and hostility on yourself this. They say, you're anti semitic. They would point to your tweet from twenty twelve while you said Israel had hypnotized the world, which you apologize for recently. And of course, a few weeks ago, you dominated the news headlines in this country for several days after your tweet about the influence of APEC money on members of congress of which you would condemn by. Leadership after which you came out and apologized. Why did you tweet that line? It's all about the Benjamins. What was going through your mind at that moment? I mean, it's no secret that money dominates the political discourse in this country minutes, it's one of the duty secrets that is not so secret. And so for me, it it was really speaking to that. It was speaking to the fact that we have a problem in our democracy. And that problem is the influence of money. So you since apologize unequivocally for the tweet, you said, rightly antisemitism is real. But just to be clear. I mean, we're few weeks on now. I mean, what are you apologizing for was it a badly would tweet that you apologize for or was it for being antisemitic? Wittingly or unwittingly. I'll absolutely not. I I apologize for the way that my words meet people feel oftentimes, you know, we are in places where someone. Will say something, and they might not know how it makes you feel and it's not acceptable. At once. You express to them that this is this is hurtful or that. You have felt attacked by their words. They should acknowledge how you feel they should speak to that. They should apologize. And you know, figure out a way to remedy that situation for you apologize. That is why won't you deleted your tweets this week because the chairwoman of the Republican party is all over Twitter suggesting that with some sort of bad move on your part or bad faith, move on your part. I mean for a Republican who always makes a bad bad faith moon to call someone out on that is is laughable, as you just did the reason I the purpose of the apology was to make sure that the people who were hurt felt understood and heard and. Leaving the tweets up. No longer would be part of that dos. Who's a senior foreign policy advisor to Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted at the time, quote to every democrat who said nothing about the anti Muslim bigotry harassment and bullying Representative Ileana homeowners being enduring over the past months, but only spoke up to criticize her you are part of the problem. Do you feel like you're fellow Democrats, especially the leadership through you under the bus? I mean, we know we are a party that really believes in having an inclusive society one that has no tolerance for the actual hate or the resemblance of hate. I think it was appropriate for our party to speak on it. And you know, it was appropriate for me to acknowledge the harm that it caused. But I think people complete two things I think there were some people who were condemning me not only on the hurt that the words could cause they were there were people who are actually condemning me for speaking the truth about, you know, the the kind of influences that that that exist that determine, you know, our our foreign and domestic policies and for that. I think you know, my tweet kind of spoke to it. But even Bernie Sanders, I think it was the only presidential candidate who's running in the race rang you up recently in and gave you some words. What he did that kind of privately didn't publicly. I mean, what did he say privately that he couldn't say publicly? I mean, I, you know, I it is important for many of these conversations actually happen privately. And what Bernie, and I talked about was how how important it is for us to acknowledge the kind of historical traumas that exists in the weight that some words scary. But also thinking about how important it is for us to talk about oppression. You didn't apologize for citing by name in your opponent? In fact, you said very specifically, the reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics. Whether it be a pack the NRA or the fossil fuel insurance. A lot of people will be agreeing that you said we must be willing to address it. Chris Hayes of MSNBC tweeted recently. And I quote, I really don't think the democratic establishment and APEC and others have quite grasped. Just how much they are losing. And of lost wide white groups of the Democratic Party base. He said APEC could end up going the way of the NRA in terms of being stigmatized in progressive circles. And you will you will hear people say, you know, the NRA doesn't own me. You will hear people say I will not be bought by the NRA show people's right? That there are other members bought by the NRA. And so when you mentioned that about other lobbying groups then you are reprimanded. Just as you've now recognized. I think we both agree when it comes to pack when it comes to Israel. We will have to be more sensitive because they're all these undistributed tropes about cabals of Jews controlling the world. And that's what we have to avoid. And they think be able to have honest discussion about lobbying. Yes. And I think not no one really in in the context of the conversations that I've had seized assess what I'm doing. I mean, we talk about Saudi money in Washington DC and Saudi lobbyist. You've been very critical of Saudi Arabia. You even called for a boycott of Saudi Arabia after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi normally helps me slam full big numbers Levick. Yeah. Indeed. Or nobody says that criticizing Senator says Lama phobic. It's interesting because people say if you support the boycott divestment and sanctions. Mm-hmm. Bedia says you do that's anti semitic. And it's because you're picking on Israel, although you've actually picked on Saudi. Arabia as well. But I think the theme here is because I Muslim, you know, there have been many members within journalism within politics within all kind of aspects of our society who have spoken about the kind of influence that APEC has on congress and on our foreign policy. No, one calls them anti-semitic because the are Jewish. But when it comes to someone like me, even the slight mention of them parish emotion onto summer of a lot about them than it. Does about me. I mean, this is a debate we need to have this is why I come to a democratic colleagues. They kind of need to take some of the lead here. Just be you receipted with a little bit of AFC pushing this out there it needs to be some of your kind of older white male colleagues. Patricia what we go back to the to the. Original question, you asked I think there is an interest in putting us in a box of constantly defending our identities. And I am not interested in being in the box. I am interested in defending my ideas, and not my ideas, just to be clear policy, by the way, we know you Bedia boycott divestment. And sanctions what is your actual position on a quote unquote solution to the conflict or you for a two state solution. Or are you as a lot of people on the left a lot of progressive Jews a lot of Palestinians. Now calling for a secular democratic one state solution in the Middle East. Where do you stand on the I believe in a two state solution? I think it is important for for there to be the existence of two states that allow booth of the peoples that are involved to have their own sanctuaries their own states. Now, if there are Palestinians and Israel is that are interested in having a one state solution that. That involves both of them than that. That is a decision that they get to make and something that they get advocate for. But I'm not one that sees there to be a solution that will involve one I think the only solution that works right now is to advocate for to you. Remember, the house foreign affairs committee? You used your position on that committee in the midst of the row over the tweaks to really grill Trump's envoy on Venezuela. Former Reagan official Elliot Abrams for his frankly, indisputable record of genocide denial more crimes apologia in the nineteen eighty s. Yes, or no, do you think that massacre was a fabulous achievement that happened under our watch. That is a ridiculous question. Yes. Or no, no millions of people watched that video on Twitter on Facebook. It went viral. Why is it taking that long for personally that with a record like that to be held to account? In front of a congressional committee. I'm someone who represents many identities that have constantly been debated in that committee, and for the first time I actually get to sit on that committee for many years. I've spent time screaming at the TV asking questions, and wishing someone on that committee would hold people accountable for the actions that they have been part of that has cost so much harm around the world. And when I had my opportunity I wasn't going to let it go to waste. And what's interesting is you had Democrats member of members of full members of democratic administrations grandees of the foreign policy community here in Washington DC coming out in defence of Abraham saying you unfair to him you are mean to him. He's actually a really nice guy. And part of me thinks this is the reason why so many people didn't want you on the on the house foreign affairs committee still don't want you on that committee is nothing to do with your tweets his to do with the fact that you're going to ask these uncomfortable questions of people in power that haven't really been asked before. Exactly, exactly. I mean today we were talking about refugees, and I sat in community and one of the committee members was talking about vetting refugees, and how that process should work. And when they got to me, I said, you know, it's it's fascinating that we talk about this. And here I am. I sit now on this community neck until you a little bit about what that process looks like in the kind of contributions I've made once I came to the United States. And so it is it is a great opportunity for my unique voice to be on that committee. When my unique voice is one that does not align with many other voices. All right. Have the finally your committee probably makes us people want to vet refugees mall. Just more of you from teddy up on that. I think you know, we we have had policies that have created refugees around the world. But because we are so focused on those refugees. We've never asked about those policies and for the first time we're going to have a refugee on that committee who asked us about the policies that. Lead to people becoming refugees one of the big migration crises right now, which is affecting the United States, of course, and the region is Venezuela, which is produced an outpouring of people Donald Trump claims to care about the people of Venezuela. Even though he won't let them in as refugees. Interestingly enough, you've been outspoken in recent days in opposing US intervention of any kind in that country, you even into a spat with Brad Stevens, the Neo conservative columnist at the New York Times who accused you of being pro president Maduro and pro starvation when I leave the only kind of the Konami that they have read you, you're either regime change bombing countries and destroying the fabric of society, or you must be a lover of a dictator, or you know, that particular regime, or whatever that's going on there. And and it's not that it's about making sure that we follow international law. It is about protecting the. Reverend T it's about allowing people to to have self determination. It's about making sure that we are not constantly using our resources to destroy other people's resources. It's about awakening the American people in the realization that there are processes to be had and there is a purpose for for our involvement in many of these countries, and it's about Willie reckoning with with this idea that we go to war in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, and in men and in Somalia, but then we put them on a ban. And we don't allow those people who we have made refugees to come into this country for Christie's amazing. And so if we want to have policies that put us in good standing with people, then we should we should act with diplomacy. We should act with fairness we should protect life, and we should protect people's. Resource to what you want to see happen in Venezuela. Do you have a solution at preferred option of what should happen? Well, the constitution of Wella's says that there needs to be an election called within thirty days. And we're waiting for that to happen. What we should be involved in his having diplomatic conversations and bringing people to the table and being a partner in facilitating that but not threatening. We are threatening intervention. We're sending humanitarian aid that that is immigration is of eventually invading this country and the country do not want more air, your fellow Democrats. Unlike the US government does and the Canadian government does you don't support the leader of the opposition as being the president right now, president meter, okay? We've seen Bernie Sanders trying to drag the Democratic Party to the left on foreign policy in recent months near just as he did on domestic policy in two thousand sixteen is that what you were trying to do now because say a lot of Democrats don't agree with you on Venezuela. They don't agree with you on Israel people in your party. Let Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer Elliott angled chair of the house foreign affairs committee. They seem to be perfectly happy with the status quo on foreign policy. This huge defense budget this endless wars this constant each to intervene meddle in other countries. What do you do about it? How do you push back against that? All you trying to push back against. I certainly am. I mean for for many of them. It's just muscle memory. Right. They just have to edit their last statement on whatever right insert a new country name. And for me, I've seen the destruction of war. I believe that there is a more positive way for us to have influence on the international stage. We have. To make sure that we have a foreign policy that is aligned with our values which US from Bosie other men in line. So could you Israelis for decades? Trump just makes it more obvious just before we finish. Now that you're on the house foreign affairs committee, you're under this relentless twenty four seven scrutiny especially from the right and from some fellow Democrats. Are you going to tweet less or tweet more carefully? Maybe few arap lyrics. I might say or in this age of Alexandra Kosovo Cortes is an expectation that all of you guys have to be ready with an instant quip put down pithy one liner on Twitter. I mean, there might there might be more appropriate rap lines. I should be to eating. I don't think this is this is about whether you tweet Moore tweet less. It's about figuring out where a comfort spot might be. I believe that. There are a lot of people who analyze my words differently because of their preconceived notions about who are Muslim is who refugee. He is who, you know, this black woman is and and I think. There is an opportunity for for mealy, he'll people from their Islam of beer from their anti-black nests from the racism, so and it is it is it is a process that we all have to be engaged in an I'm okay with people being uncomfortable. I have been living with that discomfort for many years. And so I am going to push people as much as I can. So then we also question. What would you say is the single biggest lesson that you think you've learned in recent weeks from being in the eye of this political and media Firestone on so many different issues? I think when there is an opportunity to display humility and step back and really look at your your actions. There are many doors that open that you might not have even realized existed. I think I've had a much deeper conversations with a lot of my colleagues that would have probably taken me. Used to have an as I always say, you know, what I mean I've been through a lot of turbulent situations and every Turpal institution I have been in. There's always been an a positive outcome for me and growth. And so this is this is one that I don't look at with a negative lens. I think there is much more. Positive outcomes than than they give Illinois. Thanks for joining me on deconstructed. Thank you so much for being here. Appreciate. That was congresswoman Ilhan my in her first broadcast interview since controversy over her tweets about Israel and APEC, I didn't think my first interview with her as a member of congress would be focused so much on all the hate. She gets on death threats. It's pretty depressing. I remember telling my Muslim daughter to be full of pride that we now had someone in congress who looks much more like her or her mother, and yet here she is on the receiving end of so much hate and abuse. I would argue because of that head scarf because of that Muslim identity because of that skin color, look issue, perfect note, should she think twice before posting tweets on contentious sense divisions. Yeah. But is the coverage of a ridiculously disproportionate. Yes. Is in in bad faith, a lot of the time. Yes. Is it hypocritical? Yes. Above all else. It's dangerous. It is dangerous to demonize a young Muslim woman of color in this way. And. Just watch Fox News. Listen to right wing talk radio. They are turning into a boogeyman in a country where there are not jobs out there with guns who I don't want to start thinking about what they do when they hit his stuff and watch this stuff, and I do hope that Democrats and liberal journalists who've been sitting on the fence for the past few weeks watching this unfold in front of their eyes get off the fence and start taking a stand in defence of the likes of Ilhan, Omar and Rashida today an Alexander Cossio Cortez who phase brazen bigotry and very dangerous threats day in day out and do it soon.

How I Built Resilience: Live with Sharon Chuter

"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built this resilience edition on these episodes were talking with Moore about how to think creatively during this really disruptive moment and today I'm bringing you my conversation with sharing shooter, the founder of Oma Beauty. Beauty is a cosmetics company that makes inclusive products for a variety of skin tones. Sharon's inspiration for the company came from her own upbringing in Nigeria where she just couldn't find the right makeup for her own skin tone. She went on to work for Revlon. L'OREAL and benefit, but in two thousand eighteen Sharon left the corporate world to start. Oma and make beauty products for. For Women like her. Recently, she also started a campaign to get beauty companies to be more transparent about the diversity of their workforce Sharon. Join me from Los Angeles shown for those who don't know you're the brand new originally from Nigeria. which we'll talk about in a moment, but tell us more about about your brand. Yes, beauty is the range of cosmetics. Highly inclusive Brian I found that Oh beauty, because I was frustrated with the state of the beauty industry. I was working within a beauty for the longest time and just got frustrated with how non inclusive it wasn't in two, thousand, seventeen, twenty, eighteen, these not catering to most people they were only catering to what particular audience, and that frustrated me so I wanted to go and create a movement on it to create a brand where everybody could find themselves in a beauty brand has been founded on inclusion south. Love Self, expression, authenticity, and really enabling an inspiring people to show up everyday day. The best selves had. Very fortunate to launch out with ulta support in two hundred and three stores, and in the UK as Elkridge is, and you know it's been an amazing year. We're only one year in the market and continued to challenge the industry continue to be outspoken, continued to be advocates while at the same time have fun and play with makeup and creating things that everybody can be welcoming. And I was I was checking out the website last night. And you've got this really cool feature on the site where you basically choose your complexion, your skin tone, and there's like I think six kind of general. And then in you narrow down further and and that helps you pick out right the colors. A different right? I think that's the craziness world. We keep pretending like we're not the same. What you're in need is completely different. Is Skin needs yet? Every in the to work claiming to be inclusive will create the same product for everybody, but the needs a completely different. The week created six difference in families, and it'll be customized formulas. We take each families to target the unique needs of your skin to target the way of skinny structure, the common concerns of your skin, so we put. Put that to get into foundation and that's why our website is that where where you start from what my family would sort of identifies where you are, and they go down with up to two shades, so it can be overwhelming, so we help people reconsolidate because once you find your skin family, you willing to select between six to twelve shades. Depending on your badly. We help you work on your undertone. which is you know about the shade of your skin and once you've done that. Three select from so it makes it super easy super junior to shop. There were fifty one shane. Foundation rates for women can be quite daunting just for the record I got olive I love. Honey. Honey. Yeah I. Wish I had some this morning because I I had like a little spot, but anyway that's another story. For everybody in. My business, my conceal is all the time like we DOPP circles. It will cover them. Imperfections, so he wore makeup, even though he was the most manly man and I love didn't know because society is not ready or everybody, did you? Like. It do you know I? Think a lot of men do that like I? Remember like I've on several occasions. Especially, when like we've done family photos I've taken my my wife's consider and just like. Put It under my I've done that I'm going to admit that I. Mean I think a lot of men do them nobody do, but they just hide it in new because. Oh, make thing to cheeks us, and it's not for men, and he's like no about the end. The anybody who's on TV is makeup like they put it to modify the skin. You know essentially certain parts of the camera catchy better, so every man who was on DVD's is us makeup, so as the Yes. Sure and you. You grew up in Nigeria. I think in in Lagos right. Well I grew up in a lot of parts of things. Year. My family moved around a lot. 'cause my dad was. So I spend a lot of time spent time in Warri. Warrior people don't know where it's like I joked about people like you know Holland. On my mom or come to yes, okay, make it like thirty times more extreme and you've got worried like it is. It is hot. Core is really like so much coach streets. It is wild, and that was where I spent a long time, but he's an unknown plays on the map, but very notorious, suggesting that place I read them a really great article about you and I talked about how like really early on like you know just ready to college. You got into into working with revlon and I guess it. Kinda stemmed from your childhood where you were frustrated. You couldn't get revlon products in Nigeria. Is that exactly exactly? For me. One of the most common themes in my life is always standing up for for what I believe is right in always fighting for a better world to know from been experiment. I was in high school for mobilising. Everyone should go on strike because it was a conditions in grade, and I had to mobilize on strike, so they went us right where we wanted to got it, but I was scapegoats asset label the troublemaker Ryan. Leaving College in going, hey, why don't be have cosmetics in Nigeria and I reached out to all the brands. A revenue was the only one who responded positively, and they've been trying to come into the country for fifteen years quotas, and it took like the crazy nestle teenager, not knowing how to take no for an answer in that was how I got into the beauty space of because you know, it's really showed me that I had two sides to me in terms of I'd always been. Academic I've finished high slips team, so they like have a D- at nineteen. You back clever I was one of the gifted kids adviser also been very artistic beauty gave me a home to those two things together of the creativity and. That all and you did eventually get revlon in into Nigeria. You went on to work for Laurie Al You lvmh. I think he ran operations for benefit. And you quoted an article talking about even now in African countries, the cosmetics available are really kind of designed for lighter skin tones. Even now absolutely host series of mice stories is once where I was traveling as I was. was traveling. I was showing them what was available in South Africa in South Africa you go into the department stores, you confines shades, and that's ridiculous. It's just ridiculous. A lot of countries African countries to confined it, and what also side is because of the affected canals even in Africa, the standard of beauty angles entry is still fest minister straight hair. The biggest product in Africa is. You know out here is anti aging. There is in bleaching because everybody wants to be lighter. You have some people putting their music's a musician music to go all in girls, and how they prefer lights in girls. You hear mental about this by openly that I love my girls to be lights in so all the girls. League and this was actually a big problem because you started having products with. A high dose of Hydro High reboots off. The will not allowed to sell here. People were making them as sensitive documents there and just people you know, house be raised, so it's we side and I remember growing up even. To use like white stop on powder as a faith based because there was nothing you know, and then there was like three shades of always go pancake on a regional foundation made by Max Factor Radical Cliche then everyone who robbing look orangey, look crazy in that. What was so? It's crazy when you think about it, so cool that your experiences led you to founding this company last year. How are you guys doing? No, you're still a small company I. Think you've got about ten or fifteen employees. How're you? How are you doing right now? You know I the moment. We're told people you know. We were much team. Last year. We shrunk down strategically this year because last year. Weekly for my liking like Ego France that you know when I feel like we need to take a ball. Slow down and build a foundation of property, because if you don't build a foundation of the good that you get is going to collapse at some point so for me. It was another sprint, so like deliberate shrunk the size of my team. Most of my business actually comes from beat sale. We launched it. Two hundred and three stores means elkridge. Is You know off the street which is massive visit? My business actually came from retail. One of the challenges we had was when we launched. The retail is named almost overshadowed the brand name, everybody beauty Ulta. That was what they knew. So people were buying up to not websites, so that was an issue to we had this year the way the his address for us. Because all of a sudden, he was started seeing us as an entity out side, ultra or Selfridge's or read so partners, and now we now have a business where right now my dot com is now over seventy percent almost eighty percent. Wow! So what's happened was the end is it's allowed to get more intimate customer care and that really? June, GROSSO OUT DOT COM is making way more money than you. Used to. Allow people to see us for who we are as the shadow of the read Salem. Of Yes Brian, what they they get into no me, whereas before I was so busy was always on planes. I didn't have time to use the or or the level of missed that. I have my customers. That's interesting. Yeah, so ULTA and and Selfridge's huge distribution platforms for now. Of course it's all through the website. We're getting a bunch of questions. This from Lisa Norris our your products, SPF rated and waterproof I'll well what yes SPF I make a point not to put as the. For Two reasons once you infuse ESFBF into a product, it becomes very hard to perform dots in because it's a white base. That's why they will make the like shades because on. Putting. It changed the base whites so when you go into reading from my skin complexion, and be okay right because of formula, but when you get into the real deep shades such throwing back this ray kind of flashback that I don't like so I. Don't put it in there and I also think another thing about SPF is a very personal. Eight people don't realize this the SPF needs for his first is different to the SPF need. Need for DOT skin s governing also changes based on what skis US retinol. Do US any product you know council, the Sun that would change your refinements should always by the SPF separate the products and I know people want to do it for convenience, but it's critical because STF is so unique to what you doing with your skin and a lot of times. It's gimmick products, fifteen SPF rise away from my time because I. For me because I. Right advantages usually SPF I'm gonNA anyway and then use the independently, and as we just learn how. I built this recent episode. We did on supergroup sunscreen brand. You can't just put on in the morning and that's it like you've got to put on a couple hours hours. Even know that you put on Vk in the morning right and you. Date but that's the only lasts two hours. Thank you for that question Lisa. Okay I want to turn to something that kind of got you into the news recently. You issued a call to action for corporations to publicly disclose particularly in the in the in the industry that percentage of black employees they have executives and board members and use Hashtag. pull up or shut up and you got like responses from glossier, Laurie Al and Sephora. Tell me about this idea. Come about and What yeah tell me about it I think it came out of frustration. I was extremely frustrated because like I said if the reason I up my brand was this reason companies not inclusive companies, not having black people. You know right now in America. The black adult population is just over thirteen percent, the black dissipation in corporate America eight percent humidity rose goes. Goes to three point two percent there are six hundred fifteen billionaires in the country. Only six of them watch every single level you look. There is this economic isolation of black people which is greater than the inequality right, and and that got wider and wider you know during this pandemic, though is in country, networked went from point nine trillion dollars to three point, four trillion dollars, the richest, getting rich, and the poor is getting aura. After the wake of the this second wave of black lives matter movement to the debt of Judge Floyd, which was so personal, you know it will eat meaty her activity and the rest of the world, and what I saw companies was performing activism. and. They wanted to get into social issues all, yes. Nike dropped the commercial with imported was don't do it. Everybody was applauding in became up to Sean for who can donate the most I'm going to give one hundred thousand dollars be I'm GonNa? Give a million dollars and no finding time. Did they think about what role how they played in marginalizing people of the same companies that you go through their social media? You don't see a black face. They do not have employees. They do not have black executives, and then the thing people telling their followers that you have to do something you cannot stay silent so I thought this was a really good Jackie because they came out and spoke right. Out This and actually effect change. Your companies are racist. Your companies are riddled with unconscious bias. Your companies have so much micro aggressions against black people. That's why corporate world when I had a nervous. Jake I was so starred. Everybody says meanwhile you thrive to operate. You became an executive. I'm like I. Didn't drive our survived, and that was something was for it was we have to Stanford? Change and change has to stop somewhere and thoughts, transparency and accountability, because guess what only consumers can effect change because companies only listen to dollars Asa. Of course it was a direct action movement to said you know what let's take some station public. Let's put the vote back to the consumer. Let the consumer make the decision. Do you WANNA see blocker within organizations, or do you not want to see that? Within musicians and the key message from this is saying it's not saying companies just go out and hire people because it is saying. Stop not hiring us because we're black, so this was such important critical moments for us to finally hold bronze accountable for. US This meeting activism, and you know Social Media League kind of thing and get real action. When we come back in just a moment, we'll hear more from Sharon about how corporate America can do better, and what actions they can take beyond just performance activism, stay with us, Guy and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. Support for this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish. World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age, aws dot Org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition. We're talking with Sharon shooter that founder of Oma Beauty. Sharon's also been getting a lot of attention for pull up or shut up her social media campaign that asks beauty companies to disclose how many black employees executives and board members there I read a quote of yours. You said I haven't slept. In Days I have been able to manage my business because you've been working on this initiative, but you said it's all it's all been worth it. It's. It is this a human rights issue? Everyone is sympathized by enjoyed. Right in, see somebody snot out of with. They had captured in the pocket. Everybody sees that finding talking about police brutality. What I'm talking about is the Coles police. In effect. This is the cost the cost is marginalization. So why is this country ounces the emancipation proclamation they have put enormous amount of money to enforcement. Almost amount what you mean us. Some people will saying to law enforcement right so you take people you don't give them opportunity to participate in the economy companies. Don't you jobs? Will you going set up a business? Zero Point zero zero zero six percent of dollars goes to black women yet black women at the Faucet Group of trump's in this country. They said businesses foster than any racial group in this country yet. There was no funding so stopping out if you look at all, the black says Lebron's right now. Most of them bootstraps. It was a stunt. Every five thousand dollars I found will be two thousand dollars. Average white male gets to onto million dollars to set up a business the average amount of mind to. Forty two thousand dollars. That is Asian. Share you know as as you know like our. I think our instinct as humans is to see a problem and find a solution right like as an entrepreneur. That's what you do like. You saw problem in the marketplace, and you wanted to solve it similarly with with like this. Incredibly important, profound renewed a new conversation around racial justice. It's really been inspired by the mass demonstrations. I mean there's no question about demonstrations. Work like they really do work people they they can change history. They've always history exactly. When it comes to some of these big questions, you're talking about especially with respect to corporate America, you know this performer of activism versus action is any part of you encouraged about the possibility of real change, or are you still like kind of skeptical in kind of standing back and saying wait and see well, I'm not because this time we're taking meaning our own hands. That's started this movement. We're not gonNA. Just sit and wait and see you know. I'm a dreamer I'm a crazy one. You know what I mean. Though this was all the ways that this was just for the sake of be running my business making money. I would not be spending my time doing this right so I think for me. It's like I do believe that we could affect change. I do believe because you must have the power I believe that you keep up on this companies we change within three years. We'll be having a different compensation. It would change right so I see apothecary to change because right now. I'm seeing what was happening behind. This companies are in shambles. Right out the what it around like headless chickens, because they have no answers, new leadership teams not diverse awesome on look into their employees. They haven't even promoted to management levels. They'd come fix it. Picks it and this one pulling employees into new diverse teams, and it's also been a frustration of outspoken about this. Don't take somebody who has a fulltime job. Just a black until them come, explain diversity issue through your time job. That's not fair, and that's what. Done because what they see is, the entire ecosystem is broken the hitch off. Matteo's hoppy Riverton. Companies two modules discriminated against by care, and it goes all black professional I. Got told to my face MD when I was in my cooperate life. Then I could swear. It was professional groups get. On and that I had too much potential to be presenting myself like that, so I went fourteen years. not wear braids. I live in beverly. Hills people see me walking. My dog woke up to their own walker. Whose the owner of this dog you know so one of these things in isolation is a big deal, but when you're reality every day, come on, give us a break and this will go on conscious. Conscious buyers is just things that people just do instinctively without thinking about it, and that's why we have to have this conversation. Because the only way to break anything you do in your unconscious is by consciously counteracting. It's and that's why these to be to be talked about. Thank you for for having a conversation I mean you're raising incredibly important in found issues and questions and and something you shouldn't have to do. To be interesting, in proves my point about conscious bias right? When we went out with this company, we had a lot of white America. We just built video attacked. They felt like also I. You gender copies now the White Vision Job problem that we have in almost inside you kind of have a pro black conversation. Talking to like is an anti white compensation. I'm having inappropriate conversation I'm talking about a human rights issue and your responsibility is aw. My job is not risk, but no job is at risk, Blake. Mike bottling you don't understand is like all bed you talking about. About race you dividing people, we are divided. We are divided. People are getting killed on the streets. That's the country leaving, and you're telling me the knee, saying hey, stop not hiring us because we're black. Is Me divide dividing the country? I'm not I'm not a bad person, and that just shows you the level of unconscious bias than the people who are publicly commenting about this kind of see. There's anything wrong with what they say. They're so comfortable with this. Augustine is another black person complaining and presence in the word black, which is super, toxic and missing the whole damn point. Sharon when you think about this moment in history and everything that's happening in five years time when you when we look back at this moment. What do you want to be able to say about about how you change as a leader how you took ideas from this moment and applied them to everything you do. I. Don't find the time that we are seeing. Who Change I hope in five years time. He's GonNa be. Yes, we all came together unity because the irony of this. This is actually a unification moment. It's time for us to unite in. It's time for us. Unite Against One common enemy, and that accommodating enemies systemic oppression right in systemic racism. That's why I want us to remember this time as the time of the world finding came together and made a change for the better. Because what diversity is good for business. I best. T is absolutely blinking good for business, and I want in five years time for even the businesses. Businesses, who went through the paint right now? But these step up into the right thing to be the ones where leading and going. Wow, that was good for business. I can't believe in too long to do it and that's where I want us to be in five years in. That's what I want to see back reminisce about this moment with a lot of opportunity and walk going. When things were difficult, we all chose to not do what was popular. Not Do what was comfortable with all chose to do. What was right and see how much better the world is because we did. What was right Sharon chewed founder of Wilma. Thank you so much, thank you.

Perfecting The Delivery: How We Encourage Hold From The Start | Ep: #60

"Guys welcome back dog bone podcast number. Sixty we'RE GONNA. I'M GONNA this coming off of a fresh email that I we're going to jump right into it here. It's a question that for whatever reason I've seen a huge spike in people with questions regarding it We have a video out there on Youtube. It is not new to the whole conditioning. Video is that under two. So are we have a hold conditioning video out there on Youtube? It's an hour long. It used to be we filmed it. When we filmed are shed training. Dvd and the reason we did it was because I do believe whole conditioning is just a really important process that most people a lot of issues that come up with retrievers are connected to an stem from the idea of poor. Delivery dogs in in that can be low. There's lots of symptoms that come with. It can be running off with a dummy in its mouth. It can be dropping short. It can be blinking. It can be making big victory laps with the big circle when it comes around in running back to you keep away. A lot of these issues are symptoms of what I consider to be poor delivery and so port. A good delivery would be. The idea of retriever is go get something and bring it back to us and so the the retrieving part. The idea of chasing something down or running out to something picking it up and bringing it back is very very instinctive and most retrievers. It's it's their last name. That's why we call them retrievers but most dogs can do it you. Can you can teach dogs the idea of the game of run out. Bring it back. I'll throw it again. You run out you bring it back and it turned in dogs enjoy. It taps into Predator prey which is very natural for them but again most retrievers. That's just that's what they've been bred for. It's the origin of the breed in the breeds general within that category. So but if you don't mold shape that delivery it becomes a nightmare really quickly and I think that's where I do see just tons and tons of people have problems and so I always tell people. The key to any retriever. In any dog in the field is foundation. I I not changing that. That has got to be there. Because order to do drills that you WANNA do for formal training you have to have very basic foundational skills. He'll sit stay coming to call you and those are things that are used in the field. They're also things that are used out of the field so it's a year round need in every situation that we're in with our dogs socially publicly or in the house by yourself. It's a necessity to have that foundation. But when you start talking about the hold the delivery part of it we use a process. It's called hold conditioning. We don't force fetch for stretch is a very common way of in the retriever world of of creating a good delivery and and I think it's completely unnecessary and I'm not going to get into force fetch because I don't do it and I don't think you need to do it and I think it's really uncomfortable. And that's the reason. I don't do it because I think creates a lot of issues with trust. I think I personally am not comfortable herding dog. I'm not comfortable pinching. The dog's ears their toes. I'm just not comfortable doing it. I don't care if you decide you want to do it but I can't help you with it because I don't do it but what I do is instead we encourage and this is where we're going to start talking about this because I've gotten a ton of emails and we've done some hold conditioning podcasts. We've done some. We've done quite a few of them now in the more were doing on it. I think it's great because it's creating interest. I've gotten a lot of people that are sent me messages of this is exactly what I needed. I WanNa do it this way. Instead of the old force fetch way. And that's great but you people are having some struggles with it and so we're gonNA talk more in depth on it and the reason for it is specifically. I got this one message recently. But it's also piggybacked off of lots of messages in the last few weeks and lots of comments in lots of interactions that have been spurred or sparked from the Youtube video that I started talking about in this podcast so on Youtube. We also have it available on our website. You can go to our website. It's free you can click on it. It gives you a link to it. It's an hour long. We originally produced it with our shed DVD. Because I believe that's such a crucial part of the retriever. Developing the retriever. But then what happened was as it turned into an hour by itself so it was an hour long chapter the DVD for shed trainings already three and a half hours. So if we added this we've got we're talking four and a half hours of information so we decided that that one hour of hold conditioning took away from the focus of the shed training DVD. And instead what we decided to do was. Let's offer the hold conditioning separate okay. So we pulled out. We created its own video basically and what we did was we included it for free if you bought the shed DVD. Oh we got a baby napping now I woke her up. We'll see if she settles in on the resume might have to go grab her again. We're on daddy daycare action here trying to squeeze podcast in when the baby was laying down anyway so the DVD shed DVD. We included to start out with a a opportunity for you to get the whole conditioning video for free. You buy the Chevy at the whole conditioning for free. Well eventually we decided you know what? Let's give the whole conditioning video away for free to everybody and anyone because the idea is behind it was it is so important it is so necessary. We're just GONNA offer that so that's what we did so now you can go to our website you can click on it. You can get it for free. You can go to Youtube. You can go to our dog one hundred YouTube channel. You can just search hold conditioning and you can watch it there if you want but anyway this this has brought on a lot of questions in a lot of a lot of feedback ninety nine percent of it has been positive to the idea of Nan. This is exactly what I wanted. What a game changer. It works Blah Blah Blah. So that's great but I am getting a because more and more people are watching that video and doing this process. We're getting more and more questions. I'm going to read you this one that came in and we're going to go through and talk specifically to this guy's situation and then explain why because it's becoming a real common theme and I'm going to be able to. I think I probably missed or didn't emphasize certain parts. That should have been emphasized prior to or earlier in the process here and even in the video itself. So we're GONNA get to that but I'm going to explain to you. I'm GonNa read you this so this was a message that came through our facebook or didn't come through. Facebook came through our website. Actually says I have a five month old lab that I followed your whole conditioning technique with he picked it up three weeks and we moved from a small metal rod all the way up to a two inch bumper and he will hold it until I tell him to drop. I moved him from an elevated surface to the ground. I'm now trying to work on moving. Hold when he says moving whole I think he means moving the dog in holding. He won't drop it until I tell him to but he won't move when he's holding it unless he's on lead and I pull him to me he will. He still won't drop it until I tell him. But I'm just wondering the best approach to this issue so I responded back to an in big things jumped out at me very quickly The dog is five months old. Absolutely if I didn't say it in the video which I think I did but if I didn't say it in the video I need to say it anywhere and everywhere. I have an opportunity for you guys to listen to this. You can't do this with little puppies. It's not going to work. It's going to be counter productive. It's going to be very make your life a whole lot harder. There is absolutely no reason. You should hold conditioning a five month old dock no reason that four to six months. Typically when they t-the you can't do it you will. You cannot do this until they're done teething so five months old. Maybe he says you know what? My dog tease it. Four months five months is too early. Okay they are still such little little puppies at that point so young so form formidable and we're forming trying to form good things into these dogs. I'm spending the majority of my time on foundational stuff. Very minimal retrieving. I think people get so excited about retrieving. We want to retrieve retrieve retrieve and we create major major issues by over retrieving and retrieving that forms. Bad Habits so he said here so so. I responded back and I said a few things are sticking out to me. I is that this puppy so young. I don't recommend condition hold conditioning. That puppy at five months old. It's just too intensive a process. There's way too much that goes into it and if you've watched our videos you'll see it's pretty formal. It's very formal and it requires a dog's ability to make it through that process. Okay mentally. That's the only way they're going to be able to learn and understand it and they can't do it. That's too young so I said it's just way too intensive a process. It's too much for puppy. That young I think the up I said I think The retrieve itself needs to be handled and built into a young dog and a very light manner. Positive way goes back to the idea of when we get in the hallway. We just have a little fun retrieves. We're not asking them to be steady. We're not asking them to be polished. We're not we're turning this into a fun little game of chase something on the hallway. Pick it up and bring it back and just get it to us now. Forced forced fetching and hold conditioner dramatically different when it comes to the amount of force that's used you don't use much force in hold condition very very very little but it's formal and we just cannot have that negative impact on a young pup this way it's going to create huge issues down the road when it's introduced at two young image so. I got the baby waking up again. Hold on one second. We'll see if she sells in interruption. A little bit of interruption there. We've got Lillian on my lap. Now see how long this will last but so I appreciate patients again guys. This is one of those things where this is a very real life thing that comes up especially this time in society. We're all dealing with some strange things right now and adjusting schedules. And so we've got Lillian. Who is you know? She's going to be fourteen months here a couple about a week and so we're just adjusting. Ben Said something to me earlier. I don't WanNa get off track too far where we were talking as far as our our whole conditioning compensation year but because we are getting off subject a little bit. I do think it's important to touch to on the idea of vincent new message today because he's working on the shopping. I'm working out here at the house. Where social distancing and I said he said You WANNA film today with Bella and I just can't today because I got the baby and so we're not going to be able to go outside and film Abella session. Bell is going to spend a lot of time on place in her Kennel. And we'll take her out to the bathroom and we'll take a little walk probably this afternoon but that can be the extent of the of the work we do with her. Because it's just that's the spot we're in right now. I just don't have the ability to be able to go out and work the dogs away. I'd prefer to but that's okay. We're not going to give up anything. We're not gonNA take steps backward training. We're not going to allow them to get wild and in in regress. But we're just not GONNA put a lot of emphasis on moving along real for real far with training. That's okay we'll get there in the end but getting back to the question the whole conditioning. I I talked with this guy or message back to this guy and I said I just afraid you're going to create bigger issues down the road in trying to introduce something at this age. Five months old. And so I said to you. I said you're expedient you're experiencing issues with the pups retrieves that prompted you. I said what were you doing? That prompted you to start hold conditioning. Because at five months I would. My question would be what's happening that you need to hold condition to go through the the formal process because my thought is and this is what I need to. Communicate better is pulled. Conditioning starts from day one. It doesn't start when you start hold conditioning at seven. Eight nine ten eleven twelve months. I think I gotTa make a point. Bella is eleven months old and she has not been hold condition and I have no reason to do it yet. She hasn't she doesn't need it. The reason why does not need it. It's two reasons A. She's been bred very well. She has very natural retrieve. She's very natural delivery. I've known that from day one. If you watch back on Bella be good. The some of the very first episodes talk about how natural of retriever she is. I'm writing an article right now for gun dog. That's going to be specifically talking about that. Her natural tendency to pick stuff up. Carry it and and be a natural retriever. But it also falls on me as the trainer to start forming that delivery from day one meaning. Don't play tug of war. Don't pull it out of their mouth. Don't get them to start thinking there's any reason not to come back to you with something in their mouth is not a game of keep away. It's not fun to catch. We're not going to chase them with something in their mouth. So if we do a good job early on they are starting to understand the process in the concept of hold it in my mouth the right way from the beginning and they are completely sponge like when they're little and that is a habit that will form. If you're consistent so at five months old I do think you should be well on your way because for you've had the dog for three months of training now and so you get the dog about seven or eight months seven or eight weeks to months old so you've had it for three months of training. You should have three months of forming good habits right now with every little opportunity. Retrieve that you've had in that should be about maybe four or five times a week and I don't mean four or five sessions a week. I mean four or five retrieves a week. That's typically all I do with these dogs. I don't over retrieve him. There's just absolutely no reason to. There's no benefit. There's lots of risk to create issues that you're going to have to fix now. So my question to him was what did you see that you decided you needed to start whole conditioning at five months and I said if there was things what were they. I see symptoms that he's describing occasionally with older dogs typically the fixes to lighten up from a formal standpoint. I bring the fun back into the retrieving because remember. He's talking to here in where his puppy. His just decided not to retrieve that it doesn't want to retrieve doesn't want to move it's locking up. It's freezing and so I think the dog is not confident. And that's what's causing that dog to just shut down and put the brakes on and into a statue so I always tell people if that happens. Loosen up take steps backwards of being formal and being firm and Polished. Loosen up and have fun. Let the dodgers loosen up a little bit. Don't create bad habits but don't put so much pressure on. It's a fine line. You gotta get in the middle of getting the dog to be able to move again. Free THEM UP. I said and then I said to him that the good news is it. Sounds like he's got a good grasp of the idea of hold because he never wants brought up an issue with the idea of hold never wants to bring up. He said the dogs holding me good. So that's great. Which is all the more reason to tell me. Just go back to some fun retrieves a couple times a week and encourage the hold at the end and then do that for a few months. And then you're going to be in position to start thinking about whole condition if you need to. If you do a good job you might not need to. You might be like me and Bella were eleven months and I have no reason to hold conditioner right now. The I'm doing. I just WanNa have a reason to. She's not making any mistakes. She's delivering it. Beautifully now will happen eventually. Yes it's going to But I'm just not in a rush with it right now so the so he responded back to me and I think this is the part that I think really gets good as far as information. So here's here's what we need. Here's here's his response back. Thanks for getting back to me. I understand that he's young. Hold conditioning and it could turn him off of retrieving and such the reason. I decided to start hold. Conditioning is one that he would go out to retrieve whatever I threw on a great line in comeback. We began fetching when he was seven weeks old but he would drop the bumper or dummy and come back to me and never rewarded this behavior but only praised him when he brought it back. He's also very notorious feather plonker and I read all conditioning enforced. Fetch would help fix that and I also want him to be ready to hunt this coming fall. I felt like he was ready because he picked up on. He'll place so quickly and it's very and he's a very smart dog. I was just wanting to clean up things in. Give him something. New any feedback would be appreciated. So I thought I think that opened up a whole nother can of worms and so after hearing the reason why he's getting into hold conditioning is because that was what I asked him. I said is there a problem that you started whole commissioning? Well he's got a problem with. He wants to go with longer. He wants to get some longer retrieves in. He's been retrieving with him. Since he was seven weeks old he wanted to. He's running a great line and would come back but he drops the bumper or dummy when he's coming back to him so he is showing a little bit of a symptom. They're dropping the bumper short. I never reward this behavior but I only praised him when he brought it back case. So that's the first thing he's dropping short as you WanNa get long so my answer that is don't fix a problem with premature. Hold because it's not a problem. You got a five month old puppy that's dropping shorten the reasons dropping short is probably connected to the idea that you want to go along with it. You're starting to. You're trying to stretch out a five month old puppy. I don't know why no reason to. You don't need length in a five week five month. Old Puppy you need retrieve and deliver and the majority of your work is on other things you said in your message here. He picks up on. He'll really well place really well. He's a really smart dog. No dog is smart enough to have it down at five months. Guaranteed sounds like got a really good start but then you decided he's good at this so let's just do other stuff. Let's just add more stuff to his plate. He can't take all that stuff he's five months old. You're getting you're building off the momentum of good. He'll work I guarantee you is not done with Euler. Get five months old. It's impossible watch. Bella be good. That'll be good as Bella is one of the sharp dogs. I've ever trained. Watch her progress if you are done at five months old. I'm going to hire you to train dogs for me because but it's just not possible and so but I also think you've you're finding success. You're doing something right. Which is Great? And that's creating your problem. You're creating a problem because you're finding success with simple stuff and you're deciding it's darn in we're gonNA start adding more and more and more and you're going to break your dogs back because they can't support that kind of pressure. So did I say the problem is dropping short in years extending them out long so I say if fix that. Short retrieves up shortly retrieves up in ensure that everyone gets delivered while. That's all you should be doing at this point now. The next thing is he also is a very notorious feather pucker and I read whole condition enforce fetch fix and I also want him to hunt this coming fall. There's the big issue. There's another big issue so let's talk. Let's handle one at a time. The feather plucking how do you know his Dettori as feather plucking five months old at five months old? My Dogs don't are picking up birds yet. What's what is the reason to have a five month. Old Puppy picking up birds in January February or March. You're nowhere near hunting season yours. No reason to have an so. What's happening is he's not mature enough to be picking that stuff up and what he's doing is you're creating a feather pucker because you decided you needed a dog to pick up birds at five months old in March and now he's plucking feathers because you've created a problem. It's not the dogs fault for you. Asking them to do stuff that he shouldn't be doing and then he fails at it and now we decide we're going to try to fix it with hold conditioning months before he's able to do whole conditioning. So it's the ambition. You've got ambition. Lots of it too much of it. Some people the problem is they don't have much ambition and they don't want to do anything and they hope that the dog can watch the video and learn it. That's not your case you're putting way too much way more into this little puppy at a really young age. Then you should be expecting it to succeed. So let's back up to the feathers. Let's talk about feathers first off. We're not introducing five-month-old puppies to warm game. There's just no reason to your and create a pucker. You already did. So what are we going to do when the time is right? There's no reason you have nothing to gain from it right now. Accept the idea of if you were doing a little bit of sent work. Which at five months old? I want my doing a little bit of sent work. So I'd like feathered dummies. I feathered the federalist Dummies in a federalist dummy is a wing electrical taped to a dummy and so it creates natural sent. It creates natural. Feel you can control. How much feather the dog gets. Your dogs can't pluck feathers feathered dummies because they're wrapped with electrical tape. They'd have to really work to pluck them and so that wing and I can control. How much tape in. How much feathers actually exposed? So you can put a lot of tape on and have just a little bit of feathers exposed to the point where the dog goes out. Smells pick it up. Feels it in his mouth. Brings it back to you? As long as you are. Forming the right delivery habits that goes back to shorten up. Your retrieves simplify this. Get three or four nights retrieves out of a session and then be done and do that two times a week or maybe three times a week. That's it and then you can slowly expose more feather until a habit is formed. The dog runs out and picks it up regardless feathers doesn't stop and pluck feathers. It just got this ingrained in it where it runs out at pick stuff up. Brings it back. You praise him and he's gotTa hold it a certain position. That's the start hold conditioning without ever sturdy poll conditioning formerly and that's when that's what will make hold conditioning a breeze. When it comes what will help you. Avoid dogs locking up. Because they're uncomfortable so that's so the feather part so we're going to start with feather dummies. And then I might go to frozen game frozen pigeon and then I might go to thought out birds and then I might go to a warm fresh kill bird and then I might shoot a flyer over the dog. But I'm GONNA spread that out of months if that's what it takes in. I'm GonNa make sure that each step is very practical from tiny standpoint. Confidence IS THEIR AGES. Their maturity is there the ability to process it and find success is? They're not at five months old. Just can't do it now. The last thing here is really telling it says also. I wanted to be ready to hunt this fall. The last thing in your mind right now should be if you're building. That's the exact reason in the in the spot that you're in it's the biggest thing it's because you want to hunt on this fall. What if he's not ready? I mean it's realistic to think that at ten months old I wouldn't want a dog at ten months old. You're going to be taught you're talking five or six months from now is going to be ten and eleven month old dog. I won't hunt him. My dogs won't be ready. Okay now you go ahead and do it any of you guys. There's a lot of people that are listening to us right now. Go No way. I'm not giving up that season. Fine don't but then you're the ones who will email me because your dog's got holes in his training. You tried to push him through it. You tried to speed the process up because hunting season was coming in. And you had to get this done so you put so much pressure on them. And I'm not seeing pressure like physically but like pressure on the idea of the pace. Your you put you speed and accelerate your training to a degree where you're running into problems. It's exactly what happened here. It's exactly what happened in this case. It's the exact reason why the dog is locking up. I think now slow down slow down. That's the answer slowdown stop letting the hunting season dictate your pace stop. Letting the idea of he was good at. He'll work for a few months. And so we're gonNA do everything accelerated. Don't allow you. It needs to have the the word. Patients can't be used enough in retriever chain. Even when things are going great things are going great with Bela. Things are going fantastic. She's fantastic at eleven months old and I am not doing anything with her right now because of other reasons is not because I don't want to. It's because I got other stuff going in you and I'm telling you right now. If you sense any panic in my voice you need to reassess your ability to evaluate situations because I have zero panic with ballot. She's GonNa have this fall. I'll introduce her. She's going to transition to the hunt. It's going to be training and so I don't expect you to finish dog. She's GONNA be seventeen months. I expect you to transition into the field for her first season and she'll probably get some really nice stuff but she'll also make some mistakes and I'll have to easier through it now next year at twenty seven months. I think she's GonNa be nice dog and she's going to be doing a really nice job in in in duck or goose field. But that's that's my schedule with her so in. I'm supposed to be a professional. So if you're listening to this podcast you're training your own dog. I'm assuming you don't have the pressure to say. I have to get this done by ten months. I have to get this done by six months. I have to get this done by one year. I have to get this done by the first hunting season. You have no pressure whatsoever. The only thing you need to get done is you need to get to the finish line eventually. But you're not. It's not driven dictated at all by Baya clock calendar. I think the problem is if we continue to move down. These paths of accelerated training. We want to speed up. We need to get them through this. We need to get this done. We need to get this done. Hell mind on. Didn't get introduced gunfire. When did we do Bella? A month ago died even not even a month ago. She was over ten months old before introduced to a gun to gunfire. And I don't know that I would say she's through it. I mean we've I've not shot next to her yet but of shot pretty close to her. We're still in the process and again. Do you sense the the sense the nervousness in my voice. Not at all be fine so I one of the things I said was you know to this. Guy Is it's the sequencing and the pace of his trading. That's creating the issue. Not The dog's natural instincts. Retrieve it's in Madison icier really often with most people. The root of the problem is very easy to trace back in. It's ninety nine percent of the time due to the people not the dog in particularly in this situation in a lot of people situations it goes back to your ambitious. Nece your ambition. It's too much your I told him I said sounds like you're trying to fit a years worth of training into the first three months. There's the issue can't happen. The thing the the thing about these dogs are they are so capable and they are such. They'll they'll never ceases to amaze me but I know one thing is for sure. You can overwhelm a really easy and if you overwhelm if you overwhelm them. They're going to break. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA run into issues so I told him. I think he just reassess training. Plan your goals and eliminate any measure released on a time on a timeline. It's amazing how much smoother things go. It's amazing how much faster things go when we decide that we're not going to measure based on time things just better. They just always do so. I thought this question that the the issue that the guy was having was great. I think the message is a very very across the board. There's a lot of people that run into the same not necessarily the specific issues that this guy had but the root of it is very similar. I think that the the specifics the whole part I did not. I am not doing a good enough job of letting you guys understand. Former hold conditioning doesn't have to happen early. It CAN'T HAPPEN EARLY PERIOD. But if you do a good job early preparing for hold conditioning. It's going to be first off a lot easier. You're going to avoid a lot of the headaches. Avoid a lot of the problems the symptoms that come up you can avoid those if you do a nice job getting ready for it. So hold. Conditioning doesn't start at seven eight nine ten months when your past TV bean and you're potentially seen some issues that you need to get fixed. That's not when it starts. It starts at seven eight weeks old when you make your first little puppy. Retrieve that's one whole conditioning starts. That's why we use balled up socks with puppies because their teeth get caught in the sock and they can't hardly spit it out if they want to. And that is the start of dog understanding. Bring it in and just hold on to it for a little while. We're not going to be in a hurry to steal it from. I share it back with them. Having give it to me. I'll give it back to you. Give me I'll give it back to you. Give it to me. I'll give it back to you. Get this idea in the dog's mind of bring it back to him because he gives it back to me and that makes it real happy start forming in preparing for hold conditioning from day. One not on day. One when you elevate the dog. Get them off their feet. So it's a that's a the emphasis again. Today was hold conditioning. It was specific to this question. That was a great question. It was a great volleying of emails back and forth because he asked the question and then I had to ask more questions to get to give him a good enough answer in the second email that I got from him was more valuable information than the first. That usually is the way it goes. That's why interactions usually pretty good when it comes to training questions and stuff. That's why workshops so workshops I talk about real quickly before we end. That's my workshops are valuable because when when it's in the when I'm there and there there we get what we get natural conversation going back and forth we get. I get questions answered because I get to see the dogs themselves in it makes it becomes very clear to me very quickly. Different things that are going on. That's really really valuable and important in getting good thorough answers now. We've got workshops coming up. I just sent an email out to our next steps. Attendees we do have room in every workshop yet. We're over half full all of them. We have one scheduled for April eighteenth. That's the next steps workshop. That one is not open to anyone. That's open to people that have gone to a foundation workshop. So there's a prerequisite with it so I sent an email out to the folks that are signed up for it and we're going to be. I think real close to the idea from dates standpoint to being able to fit that one in where it's fluid and we're just GonNa Kinda roll with it from a covert cove in one thousand nine hundred from cove in nineteen standpoint. We're just GONNA Kinda roll with it and see what the recommendations are in if the recommendations aren't a not hosted at that time we're not going to do it will either reschedule it or we'll move those folks into a foundation workshop if they choose to do that so we've got some fluidity there as we do in just about everything that's going on in society right now but we have a May eighth ninth and Tenth Workshop and we have a June fifth sixth and Seventh Workshop and my gut tells me that we are going to be not an issue from date standpoint. I don't plan on having to move those now if we do we do and we will. But I don't think we're going to have to. But in the meantime so what we've decided to do is between now and April eighteenth. That's a month away. There's a lot of people that are going to be practicing social distancing. We're going to be not going to group things we're GONNA. It's a great time to spend some time with your dog. I don't think there's I think it's a perfect time to get some good training in if we look at it that way you can look at it as an opportunity. I think it depends on how your attitude is with all this stuff. That's going on out there. I'm willing do Lillian. She fell asleep in my arms here. Some people would say this is something I borrow from my son's old basketball coach. He told us about. It's all about your attitude. It was this was during a parents meeting. He said we're going to focus on our attitudes this season. You know he's talking about the kids more than anything but the parents involved as well and one of the things that the court said was he heard a mother. A mom that was had young one had a little baby had kids and in conversation she was talking with another person that he knew and the mom said something about how. God I gotTa go change the baby and the late in fresh frustrated. I get it. I get frustrations of being a parent being busy and all that stuff but she's she was frustrated inch change the baby and the mom that the woman that she was talking to started crying and Lacy what's wrong and she said he you. You have to change the baby. I'd do anything to change the baby. And so what do you mean she said the lady said? I can't have a kid and I really want one in my husband and I are going through this problem where we can't we can't have a baby and so the attitude of the mom that had to be was. I have to change the baby. It was a burden news a pain in her neck. The other lady says I'd do anything to do it. It's just your it's the same exact scenario chain a baby's diaper. It's just the attitude that goes along with it one person's attitude because of the things in their life where. I really wish I could do that once. Was I tired of it? Don't WanNa do it right now and it's a pain. I look at dog training. As it's you're well I look at life right now. Especially how what is your attitude like about. What's going on if you have to do this and you have to do that you you you have to stay away from people how about. I get to stay away from people how about I get to go out and spend time outside with a nature. That's a real positive thing to me. I think it's a blessing. It's a gift we have the we can do it. I mean man. We are lucky but you can look at it as Oma gotta can't go to. I can't go to the basketball tournament this weekend like I. It's one of the things that state basketball tournament. Something I look forward with my dad and my son go to it every year. I really look forward to and it got canceled this year. I can't go to it and so I could look at it as man. I'm just this sucks. The basketball tournaments canceled. I can't go spend that time with it. Can't go watch the Basketball Games? Wa Wa Wa wa? I could look at that way or I can look at it and go. You know what instead we're going to go up north and make me circle is going to be just my family and I'm gonNA spend a lot. I'm really lucky that this whole coverted thing is going on because I get to hold. I get to old which takes afternoon nap instead of her being at daycare sleeping in her cot so dog training wise take advantage of the next month. Take advantage of however long it is. I don't use that as an opportunity instead of a disappointment and get some work. I mean. Don't put pressure on yourself just enjoy it. Enjoy the idea of what you might have a little extra free time now in that extra free time you go work with Sam or Jack or Taylor. Whatever your dog's name is because that's what we're going to try to do. And so back to that his workshops. We have decided we'd have we been has been working hard on a project. We have recorded seven workshops over the last four years. I think like had cameras. There recorded a lot of the workshop. And so what we we used it for some of our. Dvd's we use it as supplementary footage in some of our training DVD's foundation puppy and shed DVD. And now what we've done is we took all the other footage that we didn't use in those. Dvd's because the workshops cover a lot more than just what those DVD's were and so what we've done is we've taken a lot of that taken that footage. Raw footage from workshops. Ben Is edited it in broken it down into chapters which are basically a talking point so it could be some of it could be one of them was placed training. The dog you were. He'll work several American important concept any anywhere in our outline of our workshop which are outlined his big eight pages that there's bullet points in big chunks that we work on and so what we've done as we've taken those chunks. We've taken the video footage from it and we've created a series and gives you an inside look at a workshop and it's literally very candid and very raw with it's an actual workshop. That took place we don't we don't go to the cameras. We worked the cameras. The cameras just followed us around and so I think it's really H- maybe some of the best information we're going to be able to provide so we talked about. What are we going to do with it? We talked about creating another like video series and offering digitally similar to our train. Dvd's we thought about selling it as a package of series package and now we started. We've thought about it. We city know what so a lot of people right now. They're looking for training information because they have opportunities to do some training and so we have decided we're not going to sell it. We're GONNA put it on Youtube and we're GONNA put it on facebook and we're going to give it to people that it will hopefully benefit and so we've made this decision. We've got one of them done. We've got six. More men are working. Ben Starting to work on We're GONNA start trickling those out and we're going to do that. This week is going to be called. What is it called inside inside? The dog bone were inside. The dog bone workshop. We're going to play. The full videos on facebook ran play the full posts the full videos on a playlist on our youtube channel. So I do encourage you to follow us on facebook. You're going to be able to get the information there if you're not on facebook which I know. A lot of people aren't on facebook if you're not on facebook youtube and the best thing to do I think when you get there and I just thought the other day because I was posting be good. They now have a little unless Ben maybe then added in the bottom right hand corner video a little youtube play button that says subscribe. You simply click on that. You're going to subscribe to the channel. When you subscribe to the Channel You can get notifications as long as you've got notifications on a little bell there you turn your notifications on and you're going to get notified. When new episode is posted? And so Bella be goods. You will get notifications on inside the workshops when you you'll get notifications when they go new so it's something that we're hoping helps you know it's a weird time right now. People are it's I think it's time to be really nice to people I think when we're in a spot that we are in right now as a country some of the easiest things that we can do to make it better and more enjoyable. He's just be good to people. Being nice to neighbor be do do something good positive. Impact the people around you positively. This is one way that we talked about. We said you know what this should help people. This should be a positive for people and we're not going to sell it. We we talked about it and we said let's just let's give let's give it to people to use with the hopes of them benefiting from it. So that's what we're GONNA DO GONNA start real soon inside the workshop inside the dog one workshop. And we'll start posting those this week in today's already to Tuesday this week. Now we required a podcast yesterday. Bettas loading it that was episode fifty nine. It's another thing. We're probably going to get more podcasts. On in the next couple of weeks because. I can't get outside all the time when babysitting but I can hold the baby and let her sleep and we can do a podcast that way so again. This one got a little bit longer. This one was interrupted with crying babies nap times. And whatever but Ben's going to edit his Muslim as much of that out as possible. Thank you guys for. Listening to the PODCAST. I think the podcast again are things that you know. Some people will have a little extra time now. Maybe listening to these is gonNA bring some value as well. It's another opportunity for us to hopefully help. If you know someone who you think these podcasts would help. I would ask that you would share with them. I would ask that. You sent him a text message with a leak or Message on one of your social platforms. Whatever it is share. It don't be if you'd be willing to share it on your shirt on your social media page if you think this is something that helps people. If you share we put promos up on. Our facebook. Put promos up on her instagram. And I don't think we do anything with these on Youtube. What we're talking about it. We're we're thinking about migrating these a youtube as well probably will pretty quick. We do record most of them. We just use that primarily for Promo but we might start putting them up as kind of a video blog under youtube channels. Well so that's it for now. Thank you guys for the support. Stay safe all that stuff but keep in mind. It's a lot about your attitude and I think we can impact things around us in a very positive way if we choose to or we can feed into the negativity. And it's a choice that you have to make in. I have to make it in. Sometimes it is work to make the right decision but I think we gotta do it. So take care everybody. We'll be back with more podcasts

Mythology

Motecuhzoma Pt. 2

"Something to note. All myths have many versions and variations for this episode. We've selected those. We felt the most dramatic and entertaining and supplemented them with additional research into Menchaca and Aztec traditions, because mythology comes from traditional. There's a wide variety across sources are myths may not always be the version. You're familiar with, but we hope you'll enjoy them. Motech who Soma was quite literally, not himself his strong human body, normally covered with Golda doormats was now covered in feathers, his muscular arms were now wings, propelling him swiftly through the clouds he was a bird, he flew behind the formation of sixty other winged comrades, as they swooped down to an expensive lake that encircle the Pristine, mountain peak. The lake dazzled. MOTECH tecos. Oh, my as he and the other birds. Birds landed on its shore. He leaned forward, eyeing his beaked reflection in the stillwater. As he stared, he watched his face slowly transform, his beak, melted away replaced with his angular knows his head expanded as the feathers dropped off to give way to human flesh. Soon he was staring at a face that he recognized that of the emperor of the Mexica. He smiled. It was a face. He likes to see. But the lake did not hold his attention for long he slowly located his gaze to take in the majestic glowing mountain. That's sad in a lake centre. As Lan, the homeland of the Aztecs. Home. Last. MOTECH? Oussama turned to see the other birds had transformed as well six t sorcerers were now assembled on the lake shore, one of them, the oldest, and wisest stood beside him. He looked somber, but this was nothing new. The sorcerer's were not the merriest of motech Oshima's subjects, but this sorcerer wasn't looking at Motech. Who Soma he was looking out at the lake. He raised a hand slowly and MOTECH. Oh, Soma, look to see where the man was pointing. Five canoes glided silently through the water with a handful of bare, chested men inside their cradles, their skin was bronzed and pristine, almost glowing, their faces were STOIC, as they watched motech who Soma and the sorcerer's. These were the Aztec ancestors, and they're silent. Power caused a chill to ripple down motech Oshima's spine. He quickly shook it off. He was the great warlord Emperor men, even those ancient as the ones who sat in those canoes should not scare him. He turned to one of the sorcerer's. Them speak. They want to know our business here my Lord. And then they will decide if we are worthy of an audience with Koteles, cues caretaker. Just tell them who I am if they do not. I can always bring my warriors to their shores. The sorcerer answered with an unrelenting silent stare motech Oh Soma waited for a response after a few moments his bravado began to falter. Sweat appeared on his brow. He was a king, and he was not pleased to find that here. No one seemed to care. Well. He would make them care.

After a failed first attempt at finding asked Lan Motech Soma. Enlisted the help of his kingdom sorcerer's to locate the lost country, he accompanied them through the skies as a bird, and was finally led to the shores of the lake that surrounded the mystical asked land. But as he stared at this place in Awe Motech, Osama and the sorcerer's were visited by five canoes full of ancient as tax. The as texts slowly road to the shore, their backs were straight, and their movements were seamlessly unified almost as if they rode with a single mind. MOTECH, who Soma could not help, but feel a flutter in his belly as he watched these ancient beings move. He did his best to hide his nerves. The boats hit land, but the Aztecs did not disembark motech, who so much shifted wondering what they were waiting for. He thought of the multitude of gifts he'd readied for an offering to co Q.. Is it gifts they want. And, we somehow managed to leave them antenna. You, carry them my Lord. Surprised Motech Soma felt around his robes, pulling out, called chocolate and other trinkets far more than should have been able to fit. He relaxed slightly at least he would not be approaching code Liq- empty handed. He looked up at the Aztecs and held out a bar of gold. Thank, you for the transport. We can find our way from here. Sorcerer's choose which among you shall come. There's not room for all. MOTECH OMA strode forward and tossed the gold carelessly in the nearest canoe before gently pushing an Aztec aside to board as soon as his hand touched the Aztecs shoulder motech. Oussama was flung through the air. He came crashing to the ground hard. The wind knocked out of him. Dazed he sat up. None of the Aztecs looked as though they'd moved a muscle, and yet here he was on the ground, as the shock wore off, and bear assessment began to sink in and then anger, he staggered to his feet, his eyes blazing. You dare throw a king to the ground. You feel bold while my sits in. Line you cannot harm them so king. Keep your hands to yourself. I do not want to harm them. I JUST WANNA be on my way. Then tell them why you have come. Use Your words my Lord. Do not treat me like a child I. Warn You you risk punishment when we return to ten. The sorcerer stared back at Motagua Soma unmoved by his threats. MOTECH Oussama took a deep calming Cy and turned to address the Aztecs. I seek an audience with a goddess co Q.. She knows why. After a long silence, they slowly nodded and returned to their canoes. Wait. Where are they going? Stop! You best hurry my Lord. They will not wait, but you come with me. You're my guard. We Owe your guides, and now you have new ones. MOTECH Osama wanted to protest. He was eager to finally set foot on the mountain of land to appear before the goddess Koteles Liq- but he felt burdened with doubt he knew war, but this world of magic was foreign to him, but the canoes were leaving. If he did not hurry, he would lose his chance to set foot on the hallowed land of Azlan. motech Osama ran to the last canoe as it pulled away with a flying leap, he jumped inside. The boat rocked precariously water splashed in from both sides, but soon it steadied motech. Oh, so much turned to look back the way he had come at the magicians that had brought him this far. But. The shore was empty. The sorcerer's were gone. motech Asama sat silently in the boat. Watching the mountainous terrain of asked land draw ever closer, he could not believe how rich the colors were. The trees sparkled with. Do that amplified their greenery, the water below so clear that schools of Fish were visible beneath. It's tranquil surface, and on the mountain ahead, shades of purple flowers created a halo around the mountain's peak and offering of perennials like none he had ever seen. It seemed fake like painting, and yet had the feeling of something that captured the essence of the world. There was no other place as real as this. MOTECH WHO SOMA began to tremble with anticipation, he was here. He was here. The other four canoes split off and pulled away his canoe however was headed straight for a small dock behind it. A narrow path led up to a rock structure embedded in the mountainside. Mo Temple Soma stepped out of the canoe. As soon as his feet touched the appear, the Aztecs paddled away disappearing around the side of the mountain. motech Soma entered the structure nearly stepping right into a deep hole that lurked beside the door, motech Oussama stumbled backwards just in time his heart, leaping in his chest, the pit was so dark that motech Oussama was unable to see its bottom. The sight of it made him on steady he stepped back further and looked around the space. It was a simple stone cavern dark, but for a shaft of light that leaked in from a narrow doorway cut in the other side of the room, the only other exit, the room was playing no carvings or decor. It was devoid of any kind of furnishings and of people. Hello Moe tecos Oma stomach growled now that he had time to linger. He realized he was very hungry. He fumbled in his pockets, producing a chunk of chocolate wrapped in a woven cloth, one of the gifts for Cola Q.. Hesitated he had more gifts to give her plenty more. He bit off a piece of chocolate, and then another he chewed quickly, loudly spurned on by his raging hunger. You must be famished. motech Asama nearly spat out the chocolate and shock standing beside him was an old man. His weatherbeaten face was smiling yet there was no warmth in his is almost as if he was not a man at all, but an empty vessel his speech was wooden, and his movements seemed mechanical. He cocked his head as if pantomime ing, curiosity. You stand before Monaco Soma Emperor of the Mexica. Where is your respect? I, the caretaker. When you are ready, we shall go. The caretaker stood and hobbled toward the narrow door on the opposite side of the room. Motech Osama moved to follow, but paused as he passed the bottomless hold. He'd nearly stepped in moments before. Does this lead to Chico must took. The seven caves it below us. The Caves of the seven tribes. Michika. Clark weaker. Call Hooah. So G Milkha. Deborah Neka.

I am the caretaker. When you are ready, we shall go. motech Osama tents at the repetition suddenly very aware of this man's. He followed, but remained uneasy. As the caretaker led him to the door moments later Motech, who soleman caretakers stepped outside onto a narrow path, surrounded by thick foliage. The caretakers started down it Motech who Soma trailing behind him, but as they walked motech Oussama found himself, slowing his feet felt like they were weighed down with lead rather than the Golden Sandals he'd been wearing. The caretaker had no such issue and soon he was so far ahead that motech. Soma could no longer see him. Wait. I command you to. Wait. Motor Co.

Now back to the story. The emperor motech Oshima's mind raced. He tried to lift his feet from the earth. He grabbed onto branches surrounding the path desperate has he tried to pull himself out? He had traveled so far to get to his people's homeland, the mystical land of Aslan he arrived safely so close to an audience with Code Liq- The goddess of the Earth and here he was with his feet, sinking into the narrow path with every step he took, he lurched as he put one foot in front of the other, but each time is foot hit the ground. It sunk into the dirt beneath it. He was going nowhere fast. His heartbeat quickened his panic rose, and the taste of bile filled his mouth, he cursed to himself for leaving his sixty sorcerer's on the shores of Ashland's lake. If he only had their skill with him now coldly, cues caretaker reappeared on the path ahead looking at Monaco Soma, with a hollow expression of pity, his inaction exasperated motech, who Soma. Why do you just stand there? It seems you are too heavy for this path. You tread on it just fine. The stout are unable to reach the top. Emperor Motor Cassoma Stout. What was the last thing you ate? A piece of chocolate you. What came? Are you playing? You? Watch me eat it. It was all that I have had in a day's time. A meager portion. I hardly think Auckland is a luxurious item emperor. It is quite rich. Not so which would. Sink those who live as land stay away from such foods. It is how they stay healthy. Immortal? You will notice that such heavy foods can aid you as well. MOTECH Osama down at his hands. Where before they'd been bronzed and pristine, they were now gnarled, and wrinkled vein stood out under his now papery skin. What is this? Am I dying. It is possible. This path will kill you. Yes. Would you like to continue? Can you not bring? The car is to me I. Do not bring the goddess. The goddess goes where she pleases. I have come far to see her. And? Perhaps you would like to see it through. MOTECH. Who Soma let out a cry of rage at the audacity of this old man, he was sick of people speaking to him. As if you were an infant, he ruled over the most powerful empire in the world. He was feared revered and honored, and he was here through no fault of his own. No, it was Koteles. Cues fault he was here. If it were not for her drought, he would be sitting atop his throne, and planning the next campaign with his half-brother Slutskaya motech Oussama grabbed at a branch and ripped off its leaves. He flung it towards the caretaker, but it floated harmlessly through the air before drifting to the ground, the caretaker was unperturbed by Motech Osama's ten from he simply stood watching the emperor, as the fight slowly seeped out of him. Soon Motech Oh soma collapsed to his knees. A cold realization fell over him. No one here cared that he was a king. He had never felt so exposed. The caretaker cocked his head, and once again repeated his familiar phrase. I am the caretaker. When you are ready, we shall go. The guide had said these words twice before, but this was the first time that Motoko Soma truly heard them. When he next looked up at the caretaker, he did not feel like a powerful emperor or a warlord. He just felt like a man. How do I know if I'm ready? I do not have an answer for this, but I think you do. motech Osama lay in the dirt as the caretakers words reverberated through his mind, he had never questioned readiness when sending his men into a neighbouring land with their spears raised for he only had to give the order here he could not give orders here. He had no army to hide behind. His muscles screamed in protest. As he pushed himself up, he could no longer rest on his title or military might asked land did not care what his name was, and if he wanted to speak to the goddess nothing, but his own tenacity would get him there motech. Soma lifted foot and stepped forward. His Golden Sandal disappeared into the ground. Once more, he stepped forward again and again slowly making his way up the mountain path. He moved at a snail's pace, but nevertheless he moved his legs, lifted painfully with each step, and his teeth grinded effort, he dragged his rigid limbs in slow motion, forcing himself upward with every ounce of strength. He possessed strength that seemed to lessen with every passing moment. His back slowly stooped his hair, turned gray, and the skin on his face sagged as he trudged up the path after the caretaker. Began to cough a great hacking sound that seemed to push him further and further into the earth with each step, but still he walked on. motech Oussama looked over at the sound of something large, stirring in the woods. His feeble eyes squinted, trying to see into the foliage. The luminous yellow is of Jaguar shown through the Bushes Motech Osama froze in fear. He dared not move. His heart thumbed weekly his rasping chest, but the Jaguar was looking at him with curiosity rather than hunger. The caretaker turned back to Motech Oussama. What you make of it. And close. Close to her. I can feel it. That is what it means. If you say so emperor. motech Oussama held the Jaguars is until the beast slowly backed away into the shadows of the forest strength surged through him, whether it was mystical or his own determination, he did not know his stride became easier. His feet still sank into the ground, but now he was able to pull them out with more agility. He stepped forward again and again picking up his pace. The peak was close a few yards above him. He moved faster. His hair turned from white to gray to the jet black. It was before his papery skin filled out returning to its bronze to vibrancy. He was young once again. He grunted with effort, as the renewed muscles in his legs, pushed him up to the crest of the mountain and over the top. Motech, who so must stood at the peak of asked land, panting, and spent through his deep gasping breaths. He's started to laugh. He had never pushed himself so. Physically and the success made him giddy, but the smile faded from his face when he noticed a figure standing before him. It was an old woman. She stood with a hunch back and her tangled white hair, covering her face, her chest was bare, but no skin was visible, instead dirt covered her from head to toe, caked onto her body as though she had bathed in it. Motech Osama's eyes were drawn to her skirt. It was made of dead snakes, hanging limply around her legs. His mouth fell open in shock. He recognized this figure from his dreams and the statues that adorned his temples. It was code Lecue. The mother of the Earth Motech Osama, stood tall, and spread his arms out wide in greeting mother of the Earth. I have arrived. But Code Likud did not answer. She stood still observing him through a curtain of ragged hair. As the silence stretched on Motech Osama's relief turned to apprehension. He opened his mouth to say more, but found himself unable to speak frowning. He tried to cry out, but his voice had been silenced. Code Likud did not want him to speak. She slowly pushed her hair aside to reveal piercing cold is their gaze, cut into motech Oussama like a knife, and it seems she found him wanting for she slowly raised a finger, and pointed at the emperor. Her eyes blazed with grief. You will die. They all will die. Up next co Q. gives Motech who Soma an unwelcome prophecy.

Mata Cassoma Emperor of the Mexica had traveled to the ancestral homeland of his people asked land there, he intended to beg the Goddess Code. LIQ- to end a drought that had plagued his people, but as he finally knelt in front of the mother of Earth Koteles Q.. The first words from her mouth were tidings of doom. motech Oussama stomach plummeted at Kotak. Use words. She was angry. She wanted blood for what he did not know. It was then that Motech who soma the proud emperor conqueror of all Michika threw himself to his knees, for when the Gods are angry, mortals must make reparations. As he hit the ground, he felt his voice release, and his please poured forth in a rush. Here. Gifts please got US mother. Gold Trinkets and the remaining chocolate spilled out of his pockets. He shoved them toward the goddess, his eyes, pleading at the site of the presence code, accused demeanor, softened her posture straightened, and the lines on her face, filled out within moments she to looked more youthful and vibrant than the decrepit woman she had been seconds ago. Praise was a powerful medicine. It seemed she walked toward motech Soma she stood tall with her arms, spread, wide to pull the world in close to her, and as she leaned to speak to Motech Oma the is that beheld him possessed a startling wisdom. Thank you your reverence is warming. I. Am I know who you are emperor? ZOME! And I know what you seek. But. We cannot always get what we want. Is it not so. You will not return. The land is dry and cracked my people with her. Before my eyes, I will not return to what I have left, and your false sympathies are laughable. I know what you are emperor. Left on purpose knowing what would happen to us, you hiding. Here's a cruel trick taunting us from this paradise. Not Cruelty that drove me away. It, is you. Your victories. You'll accomplishments as you call them. Have conquered untold people's. We make thousands of sacrifices to you and we'd see it'll Lee you murder in our name and you call them gifts. MOTECH! Osama's cheeks felt hot. His urge to defend himself was stifled by the shame that Koteles Liq- had ignited war. An expansion were his greatest achievements is a ruler, and now the thought of his prowess caused him anguish. Koteles Q. grabbed his hair. Her voice was barely above a whisper, and yet it reverberated within his head. You have prospered. Yes, but your prosperity has been built on cruelty. You murder and rip apart villages, and what is worse, you warriors abandoned families to go and ravage foreign lands. Code cues is brimmed with tears, and she looked away. MOTECH OMA realized with a start that she was not just talking about his warriors. You miss with Zulu Poach Louis. He abandoned me his mother to create a civilization of blood. Wheat CEELO Poach Lee was the Mesh because supreme. God it was he who Soma prayed to who they sacrificed to of the year before the droughts plagued their land wheat Seila poached Lee bestowed them with successful campaigns and fruitful harvests while motech. Oh, Soma often took the credit for his kingdom success. It was wheat. CEELO poached Lee that Koteles Q. Credited and blamed. You in morning. When we'd CEELO poached -Ly took your people from S Lantin. He left me here. I followed I, looked and looked and looked for years I. Sat amongst your people watching and waiting for him. He is wasted. World War and bloodshed thrived around me. At. He must eventually show himself. But still he hid from his mother. So. I came back home. And so the droughts came to ten Teton. I hoped he would follow me here. That, he did not notice. Or care. I do not know which is worse. We'd CEELO poach liaise answered many a sacrifice with a success on the battlefield. It seems that he notices my people when we call for his attention. You who are suggesting? I sent him a message through you. Do you think he will listen? I think he will hear you. But I do not know if he will listen. MOTECH. Who So my new? The feeling well, he rarely listened to the advice of those wiser than him. He did not like to be told what to do, but here kneeling in front of Kotak you. He finally accepted that there were other ways to change the world aside from force. A message to lay upon his alter. It is a good idea. It should be. Something simple to remind him of humility. And of his mother. Coldly Q. Gently handed him a plane piece of cloth motech Oussama took the cloth, and carefully tucked it away with his robes. Fear nodded his belly. He was pleased to help goddess, but her first words to him had not left his mind, and he could not leave here without knowing what they meant. When you first saw me, you said that we would die. That I would die. It's you attack. Others crush their cities and steal their people for your own purposes. You Doom yourself to the same fate. Your cities will crumble and Berar. An your people will one day be but a story. What can I do? Nothing. Instead of arguing or pressing her further motech Soma found himself bowing his head in acceptance, though he wished it were not so some things cannot be changed motoko Soma departed from the peak coat league US gift safely tucked in his robes. He walked back down the path that brought him here, but with a lightness he did not have during his ascent, his feet did not sink into the ground, and his youth stayed intact. He met the Aztecs at the dock, and they wrote him across the lake to shore, where the sorcerer's had reappeared, he joined them on land, a different man, and gazed back for one last look at the triumphant peak of as land. But it was gone in its place was a dry desert. The sorcerer's turned into birds, and they all took to the sky they flew over the desert through the clouds, and finally landed on the road before the Great. City Gates obtain not lawn. MOTECH WHO SOMA transformed into a man in one smooth stride as he walked through his city, Gates. He walked up the steps of template mayor, and soon was kneeling before wheat, CEELO poached lease alter. He closed his eyes, and said coldly accused cloth down on the sacrificial stone, dried blood, was crusted around the edges of the stone, filling the cracks of the altar with dull red lines. The cloth looked vibrantly white against the residue MOTECH. Osama stared at the dry blood. The words of the goddess playing over, and over again in his head with the corner of his robe, he gently dabbed at the blood, wiping it from the stone, then he scrubbed more vigorously. His eyes glistened as his movements became more frantic, he wanted the blood gone his lip curled with loathing, as he rubbed the residue away. The sound of footsteps pulled him from his task. MOTECH Osama turned to see is half brother and advisor to lock. Standing behind him, his expression was curious. There was a question in his is what happened, but MOTECH OMA could not speak a wave of grief washed over him. Tears ran freely down his cheeks for the horrors he had inflicted and the horrors that were still to come. To. Lacayo opened his mouth to say something but Motech Oussama. A hand instead he stood and moved to embrace his surprised advisor. Motech who soma had spent many years learning about what he wanted by force, but he had much to learn about the strength of family he let go of to La Kayla before his half. Brother could speak. He strode from the temple. Outside he stood at the top of the steps, and looked down over his kingdom, starving people sat on the steps below and milled about in the unrelenting heat, they were weak, and though heads turned to look at their king, it seemed as though they barely saw him. A drop of water hit motech Oshima's forehead. He touched it in disbelief, rubbing the moisture between his fingertips. He looked up. Rain began to fall softly at first, but then in a steady stream laughing, he raised his arms into the air. They may be doomed, but in this moment he felt saved. motech Osama continued to rain until his death in fourteen sixteen nine, though he's known for being a war leader and expand her of the Mexica Empire Monaco. Osama is also credited with some more practical advances like constructing docks to provide to not lawn with water, among these was the chapel tape pack aqueduct, which took thirteen years to complete. But Darker Times were still to come Koteles cues. Prediction came true about fifty years after a motech Oshima's death, many of the Mexica were slaughtered, and their cities were leveled by the invading, Spanish it was the end of their civilization. History has painted the Aztecs as violent and bloodthirsty people. But that's because of who got to write history. The invading Spanish told tales of mass murder, and the name of sacrifice to them. The native people of Mexico were uncivilized dangerous. The tale of tecos Oma searched for Koteles Q. was recorded after the sixteenth century Spanish conquest by Fray Diego Duran and can be interpreted as a condemnation of militarism and A. A story that champions family values code accused longing for her son wheat, CEELO poached as another layer to this theme, his original departure from asked land to settle in the Mexican basin, ultimately led to the Mexico's ruthless slaughter of those who resided in the region. Previously, his departure from Ashland therefore shows his abandonment of family for war and Cote accused grief from his absence shows that conflict rips families apart. And then there's asked land itself a luxurious place of abundance, everyone who lives there enjoys immortality and infinite happiness wildlife coexist with the people of Aslan with bird, soaring through the skies and schools of fish swimming through the lake trees shade, the inhabitants from the harsh Sun and floating gardens full of vegetables ensure that no one goes hungry. In modern Mexican culture today, the legend of vast land represents many things including unity, because it's a place utterly without the complications and vices of the world outside Motech Oshima's consumption of the chocolates that weighed him down symbolized the risks of indulging in luxury. The aztecs from asked land could remain immortal, because they've not been spoiled by such things, therefore representing the ideal that all should adhere to simplicity and harmony with nature. We're all way down by our vices, and sometimes success, and its pursuit clouds the true harm that we do the story of couse. Obama's to asked land was more than a quest to find a mysterious homeland.

Between the Scenes - President Trump vs. The Squad

"You're listening to comedy central. It's no secret what's happening. You know if it were secret who'd be hot as trying to understand donald trump versus the squad and him telling them to go back to where they came from and send them back in the whole thing telling they can leave if they complain. It would be a lot easier to deal with if you didn't know what it was but it's almost harder because you know what it is. Fundamentally trump's plan is to paint these congresswoman as the most un-american. The people possible right and you can disagree with the views you know like Ilan Oma has said some controversial things in all Cossio Cortez has a different idea of America which is UNAMERICAN. You Know Anna Presley. I think the crowd didn't do because they don't know and also if you've seen her. She's got the most centrist views of the four right but regardless of that this L- Americans you know I mean that's that's what America's always been about fundamentally. Is that having that ability. See to have that discourse and different ideas and the ideas fights it out. You don't kick the people out because they don't agree with that. In fact I believe part of America stories that people coming here because where they were the people were like why don't you leave because of Shitty they were like you don't like the ideas leaving. We're go somewhere where people don't say this. You know what I mean and then now that's that's going to be the story of America but Donald Trump is using that he's going. I'm going to say these people on American. This isn't America. They don't love America as opposed to they have a different idea for America should be and then. And his plan then he ties them to the presidential candidates and then it becomes a race about you love America. Do you not love America. He appeals specifically to that that portion of white voters who determined the Electoral College in the last election tries to keep them. I'm with you not with these people who these people are and that's what shapes the election and what's tough is is that on the one hand you almost no like Presley the squad and you almost know that like all they there's. There's like different. Messaging that they could use to counter that narrative but then they would have to bend almost in a in a way to the will of trump and it's like you don't WanNa do that but what sucks about America's. You've got electoral college so it's like do you run the best campaign for the country or do you try try and do things that politically help you to win those three swing states and that's I feel like eternally going to be the thing that curses America and it's politics that are not truly running to be the best candidate for all of America.

The Case Against AIPAC

"Even though Ilhan Omar was not there. She was absolutely omnipresent at the APEC conference. Slama Philby has become a major part of pro Israel advocacy, in the United States over the last thirty years. I'm mandy. Awesome. Welcome to deconstructed from the intercept studios in Washington DC this week a pack came to town. Yep. The American Israel Public affairs committee, which I don't want to be very careful is it truly disgraceful organization. I'm not talking here about eight packs clear position to any kind of viable peace process will two state solution in the Middle East. I'm not talking here about its defacto support for legal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories or its opposition to the Iran nuclear deal or even a packs hosting of right-wing Israeli, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just weeks after he did a deal involving the far right Jewish power Ponti, which eight-pack itself has called a racist. And reprehensible polity put all that to one side from note. I am talking about apex obsession. Yes. Obsession with Representative Ilhan Oma, and it's very explicit role in mainstreaming Islam phobia in the United States. Let's deal with Oma. I the annual APEC policy conference attended by the great and the good of Washington DC and beyond attended by top Democrats and Republicans alike took place this week, but the focus of the conference you could say was less on Israel and more ill Hanno law, who, of course, criticized apex financial influence on US politics last month and had to apologize off to be accused of antisemitism in speech after speech OMO was denounced mocked smeared, either explicitly or implicitly Israelis did it his prime minister Netanyahu who could from this Benjamin. It's not about the Benjamin Republicans did it. Here's vice President Mike Pence recently, a freshman democrat in congress traffic in repeated antisemitic tropes alleged congressional support for Israel reflected an allegiance to a foreign country and his Senator Mitch McConnell. I've heard it suggested that our support for Israel explained away by money. Or by secret dual loyalties even Democrats joined in the pylon. Here's house majority leader, Steny Hoyer, when someone accuses American supporters of dual loyalty, I say accused me, and he's Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer when someone looks at a Neo Nazi rally and see some very fine people among its company, we must call it out. When someone suggests that money drives support for Israel. We must call it out. Did you hear that in Chuck Schumer's is Ilhan Oma? Criticizing APEC is the equivalent of Donald Trump praising Neo Nazis. He actually said that just to get some cheap applause. I mean for God's sake. Shame on Schumer. Shame on him. Let's be clear Omar is getting death threats every day. She was recently included in a hit list. Drawn up by white nationalist, domestic terrorist. A member of the coast guard, no less hundreds of people are showing up to protests at public events to try and intimidate her and smear as a Nazi there is anti Omar. He steer out. They're both on the far, right? And in pro Israel circles, and if God forbid something were to happen to congresswoman, Omar Schumer and Hoya will have blood on their hands. I'm sorry. But they will it's reckless a response. Frankly, disgusting for them, both senior Democrats to attack her in this way, as they did at APEC, by the way on a side note from a purely tactical point of view, it's mad and totally self destructive for craven democratic leaders to go to APEC, and basically endorse the cynical Republican argument that they the Democrats other ones with an anti semitism problem. Not the white nationalist on the right? Just listen to the president of the United States. The Democrats have become an anti Israel party day become an anti Jewish party. The issue, of course, is not that the Democrats are anti-jewish an absurd smear. But the democratic base has in fact, been drifting away from Israel, especially younger Democrats. That's what the polls show, and that's probably why democratic presidential candidates didn't turn up at the Pac policy conference this year. It wasn't a boycott though as Republicans acclaiming. Well, it was by Senator Bernie Sanders, but not really by the rest. Of them while presidential candidate, Senator Kamla Harris, for example, didn't turn up to apex conference in DC. She did similar Tena Asli host an eight-pack delegation in California and tweeted out a picture of it. If the Senator can't come to APEC APEC can come to the Senator. But look what's wrong with top Democrats associated with epoch some say apart from the fact that it shows for Israel's occupation. Well, the Islamaphobia is a big problem to a big big problem. A Packers hosted the anti-muslim biggest Steve Emerson on multiple occasions. Emerson is the guy who falsely claimed among other things that Birmingham in the UK was a Muslim only city, and they know goes on for non Muslims, then conservative prime Minister, David Cameron called him a complete idiot. Apec gave sixty thousand dollars to Frank Gaffney, the head of the center for security policy, a think tank, which pedals anti-muslim conspiracy theories Gaffney is credited as being one of the inspirations behind Donald Trump's Muslim ban. In fact, the southern poverty Law Center has call. Him one of America's most notorious Islamophobes a Pat gave him sixty K. Also this year one of their big donors and full mccown SEL members at a Milstein had to pull out from speaking at the policy conference after he accused Ilhan, Omar and her fellow Muslim American lawmaker Rashida today of being representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood whose values quote clash with American values. So APEC has a serious problem with Islam phobia, and it's becoming more and more toxic thankfully in democratic and progressive circles. But how do critics of APEC, and the broader pro Israel lobby carry on pushing back against them without getting accused of antisemitism. Joining me to discuss all this are Yousef Mnaya executive director of the US campaign for Palestinian rights and debris Shusha the director of policy and government relations at Americans for peace now. Deborah yousef. Thank you both for joining me on deconstructed thanksgiving here Debra start with you you at the Pac policy conference here in Washington DC this week. What was the highlight of APEC fear? Well, I think the highlight of a pack misty is very relevant to what we're talking about today. Because even though Ilhan Omar was not there, and even though her name was not mentioned from the dais. She was absolutely omnipresent at the APEC conference most people. I think who introduced the crowd addressed her comments again without using her name, and this was across Republican speakers. Democratic speakers all of whom of course, either outright condemned her which was generally the case or certainly put significant distance between themselves, and they'll haunt them. What was the charter amongst delegates long amongst the rank and file similar, of course. Of course. I mean, I think within the crowded APEC, you would be extremely hard pressed to find anyone who had something positive or even neutral to say about Alano more and just for our listeners home around the world tuning in who hear about this kind of a pack this big bogeyman pro-israeli full from Capitol Hill when you're at the policy conference in DC. Do you get a sense of power influence an organization that's taken seriously? Yes, you do both in terms of the grandeur of the conference. This is a conference that takes place every year at the Washington convention center, which is a huge facility. It is. No secret APEC brags about the fact that eighteen thousand. People supporters converge on a pack to participate in the conference, everything is high tech. And probably most importantly, there's a huge number of politicians who come to address the crowd, their presences ubiquitous. So yes, I would say you get that sense Yusuf. Why do you think a pack in the speak? Because APEC this week have been so obsessed with Ilan Oma. What is the strategy that if there was one I think it's easy for them to do. I think I've been very vocal about this Representative Morris somebody who exists at the intersection of multiple vulnerable identities as a black woman as a Muslim as a refugee in this country at a moment when we have a white supremacist in chief in the White House and going after somebody like that is very very, politically inexpensive for Republicans and Democrats alike. And I think even though in the last six months, we saw the worst anti semitic hate. Crime that we have seen the most most in Pittsburgh precisely the focus around. Antisemitism at APEC was directed. At Representative, Omar and the way I looked at it was as a washing machine for antisemitism. And you know here if you were a Republican or close to the administration or Republican who is engaged in anti semitism yourself. You could show up present your pro Israel, bona fides point at Representative, Omar and get a standing ovation from the crowd time. Vice president Mike, Mike. The secretary of state did like so many of the officials that were there including represented McCarthy who himself was was tweeting put up tweet Laos targeting exactly juice of one of the one of the big problems in the entire conversation around. Antisemitism is if you can present yourself as pro Israel, and specifically pro right wing in Israel, you somehow are able to put on this. You know, invisible cloak of immunity when it comes to allegations of antisemitism. It doesn't seem to hit you the the same way you'll Jewish. This is true. Breaking news. Yes. Is it fair? When a lot of non-jewish people who are watching this debate from outside. We'll say hold on how come they don't bring up the Republican antisemites as Yousef mentioned wise. Apec not going why they hosting people like pens who apart of administration, which has spread anti semitic conspiracy theories. Is that fair is that what aboutism? What's your response to people say that too? I think that's absolutely fair. And I think it there are plenty progressive American Jews, and it should be pointed out that the majority of American Jews are and always have been progressive take very much that position. We recognize just as use of said we recognize where the chief threat to Jews in this country comes from that it comes from white, nationalist and white nationalism. Which inspired, of course, the terrorists who killed eleven American Jews and the tree of life synagogue. So no, absolutely. We recognize that. And and let me say that one reason I think that it'll Hon Omar is so useful for a pack, and it ties into exactly this point is because it enables APEC to to try to make the argument that beady s that anti Zionism. Correct. An anti Zionism, although you know, actually, Ilhan Omer has has said that she supports to states, which is not an anti Zionist position. But nonetheless beady s is certainly associated in the minds of many and not without reason with anti-semitism anti excuse me with anti Zionism is what I meant to say. They're not the same thing in my view as the number one threat as equivalent to anti-semitism, and I think that very nicely serves apex agenda in terms of its argument that Bedia is a fundamental de-legitimize or of the state of Israel, and a pack, of course, has made one of its key legislative priorities pushing antibeach legislation in congress about the vast majority of American Jews being progressive as you mentioned, which is undeniably true. And the Republicans are trying to kind of switch that around. Use of APEC was targeted by move on dot org to progressive activists group, which off democratic presidential candidates. Not to go ape this year from multiplicity of reasons, including Islamaphobia, it's blocking of any kind of peace process. Encouraging the Trump administration to pull out of the Iran deal at cetera et cetera. And yet the top democratic leaders turned up Schumer Pelosi Hoya is a pack of an organization top democrat, self styled. Progressives should be allied with an if not why not I think absolutely not. But I think what is happening is that there is a tremendous shift happening within the party, and it is primarily a shift that is prevalent at the base, and you have a leaders at the top of the party who have long standing relationships with individuals and also organizations where you know, they have been present at for year after year after year often recycling much of the same language to, you know, get standing ovations before a crowd of APEC supporters, and it is really been sort of one of the least controversial things in Washington historically, until now until now, that's definitely changed. But you know, you have the legacy of that on with many, particularly the the politicians who have been around for some time who was sitting at the top of these parties who have really spent their career. Here's developing these relationships caught in a bind between that past and the future of a party that understands that you simply cannot be progressive without supporting the human rights of Palestinians. Debra do agree about the shift in the base, you work at the grassroots level. Is there a rift between not just the democratic base? But progressives liberals across the United States, and this idea of being solidly pro Israel. No daylight between the US and Israel is there is now a gap developing between that I think there are different. There are definitely different notions of what it means to be pro Israel, and how one should be pro Israel. There is the traditional APEC sense of being pro Israel, which on the one hand extensively means being completely uncritical of whatever the current Israel government is doing although there's problems with that. Because when there have been labor governments in the past, particularly the government of Yitzhak Rabin APEC actually tried to undermine what? He was doing and. He absolutely called them out, especially around the Jerusalem embassy or the idea of moving the embassy to Jerusalem and congressional legislation around that, and then you have of course, those of us who are pro Israel. I work for an organization that is pro Israel. But that views what is ultimately good for Israel is also pro peace and pro two-state solution. And ultimately as we see it also pro Palestinian terms of support for a Palestinian national movement and its rights. So there's a fundamental divide in terms of. To someone who defends himself as pro Israel in liberal sense or liberals senses, frantically, liberals Linus. That's fair. Yeah. So are you worried that people might be going from one end of the spectrum to the other? And just missing you out. People are the Diane pro Netanyahu pro Likud pro Israel, or the other extreme the anti Israel that pro EDS. So I I saw some Gallup polling that showed democrat supports for Palestinians over Israeli is at its highest level. I think since two thousand five this idea that American Democrats across now sympathize with Palestinians, mold in Israel, as which was unprecedented in the pulse. Here's the problem with that polling. I'm glad you brought this up the pulling itself is problematic. I mean don't question you ask defines the answer. You get which Yousef. And I both know as as political scientists in this case the way that that question is asked is who do you sympathize with more? Well, if I as a liberal Zionist who was pro Israel, pro Palestinian pro-peace amass that question. What do I answer? I sympathise both with Palestinians and with Israelis asking a question like that. There should be another alternative do sympathize more with Palestinians or with Israelis or do you sympathize with both in one piece? So, of course, the way you asked two questions is going to shape, the answers that you get we know that the thing though about this polling that I think is undeniable and one of the reasons why the question is the same this year as it was last year and so on and the poll that you reference is because the posters are trying to measure change over time. And that change over time that partisan divide as something that we're seeing not just in polls that ask the question that you mentioned with specific language around sympathy or whatnot. But on all issues around the Israeli Palestinian question that we have seen over time. This gap is growing in an unprecedented way. So I want to come back to the pod is undivided a moment. But let's just get into some of the details of the whole Ilhan, Omar. Travec because what she was attacked for ridgeline. What she originally apologized full was had tweet that it's all about the Benjamins baby referencing puff daddy in relation to APEC, which she identified the group. She was saying had a financial influence on members of congress. And there was this huge backlash. She was accused of antisemitism. She will also understanding how APEC works Meghan McCain spoke at APEC this week. And she said Americans don't support Israel because APEC pack is influential APEC is influential because Americans support Israel Yousef. What is wrong with Meghan McCain's analysis there, I think the way I would answer. This is this is that line. For Meghan McCain is the same sort of line that you would get from the NRA, you know, the gun policies that we have in this country are the way that they are because America's pro gun. And I think in a very generic sense. You know, the United States is a country where guns are supported in a general way, more than many other places and also a place where there is sympathy. And support for Israel. It's really not a question about the direction of the policy. It's really more. A question of the extent. Right. A why is it that? We don't have commonsense gun control legislation, and are it's no nobody's style. Absolutely. And so the the lobby I think, you know, while APEC is a massive massive player. It is one of many different pro Israel interest groups that are involved in helping to shape policy in a extremely pro Israel direction. If you look at public opinion polling. Yes, you find that there is general support for Israel, which I think is something like all public opinion is conditioned on the media environment. The information education that people have on these issues. The other thing that you see though is that when you ask people what side do you want the United States government to take and resolving the Arab Israeli issue over time. It's consistently large majorities that say we want the United States to play an even-handed role which adore take. No. Which it doesn't? Proudly say it doesn't what explains that gap between where public sentiment is. And the way that representatives of public sentiment in call the plays a role in that absolutely absolutely wrong. This other factors geopolitics at central etcetera. Sure. There's I mean, there's a lot of things that shape the direction of the the relationship. But, but if APEC was not having an impact they might as well, close up and go, home and spend the hundreds of millions of dollars that they raised to do this work on other things. Right. I think it's very clear that they haven't impact it's very clear that that impact is shaping the direction of US policy not in its totality, but shaping it. And I don't think it has been in a positive way w noting as Yousef of responding to Meghan McCain line when you as an American Jew hut, Illinois, mafia, it's all about the Benjamins. What was your reaction? They. Yeah. That's the correct analysis of how being now now now now I remember reading that tweet of Ilhan Omar's and doing a face. Palm and saying, oh, no. And I'll tell you why a couple of reasons one of which is that for me as an American Jew. I saw what many of us saw which is that. There is a connection this as the phrase is often been used antisemitic trope that that comment played into knowingly or unknowingly about Jews and money, which I've found concerning. Another thing that I found concerning about it is that it was overly simplistic, which I think for a member of congress in particular was extremely problematic, and I realize it's a leering right? But to say, it's all about the Benjamins will. No, it's not is it partly about the Benjamins. Yes. And that's why I'm I was Notting when. It's partly about the Benjamins. I mean, do the Benjamin's play a role. That's this week eight-pack take it from this Benjamin. It's nothing to do with the Benjamin I disagree with that. And again, I was except uses point that there's analogy between APEC and the NRA there's a the NRA of the Middle East. Is that fair to say, I would say it are they both lobbying groups that are that are influential and that bring a lot of money to bear in order to shape policy in their direction that they choose. Yes. What's the simplistic unpacked? Wish you think she got it wrong. Right. So where I think she got it wrong is that you know, there's also some truth to what Megan McCain had to say, which is that there is still a very significant amount of pro Israel sentiment among Americans. But as we know it's not just about broad public sentiment as measured in opinion polls. What's also important is the strength of preferences. And we know that single issue voters. There's have a very significant impact and disproportionate impact in terms of legislation in terms of going to the polls. So there are significant number of particularly evangelical Christians, which we haven't mentioned and also American Jews, especially those on the right who vote pro Israel, and pro Likud Asche sort of way as a single issue. So they're able to have a disproportionate impact. So I think it's complicated. And to have a congress for me to have a congresswoman tweeting something, you know, flippant like it's all about the Benjamins is not a contribution to discourse. Hence the face palming. I saw that. And you mentioned the idea of single issue voters one of the other accusations against Illinois in relation to APEC in the mobile. Of course, was that comments about quote unquote, dual loyalties attributed to comments that she made a public event in Washington DC, which she says wasn't in relation to do. A little too is in relation to members of congress being on the show. Allegiance to Israel, Steny Hoyer, the house majority leader turned up this week. And he said this when someone accuses American supporters of dual loyalty, I say accused me Deborah does that make any sense to you on the one hand, it's antisemite to key someone of deal another hand, you get lots of applause APEC if you say accused me of dual loyalty, I'm lost. I think the reason why that God a lot of applause is because first of all he obviously doesn't really believe that it's dual loyalty and also because hearing non-jews say that to express sort of solidarity. You know, it's not Jews. It's Americans to Representative most she never repented choosy this. She was referring to congress. You are just majority non-jewish. Look, you're absolutely correct. And this is what I think is a really important point as we discuss Ilhan, Omar, which is I think we have to be absolutely loyal in as we quote her as we talk. What she said to actually, quote, what she actually said. I mean, many words have been imputed to her. Most recently, let's say by rabbi shmole tail who took out a full-page ad in the Washington Post that said something like, blah, blah, blah, Jews control the role was my. Emerson news even once any of the country, which she never said lazy paraphrasing by journalists on TV summarizing APEC Jews. We'd Lee was on CNN Las tweet would Bill Kristol. And he went out of his way to say APEC is not Jewish organizations Israel. I said I agree with Bill Kristol, which I have thought I would say in public. But he's right. I mean, he's actually putting reality Yousef. How do we talk? If we support the Palestinians, and we want to call out a pack. How do we talk about a pack without falling into some of these quote unquote on trips without having people at Deborah to a face palm without sounding simplistic about the role of lobbying. Is there a ways their way of navigating that I think it's important to be accurate and precise and truthful to the greatest extent possible, and every comment that we make about this issue. I also think anti semitic tropes involving Jews running the World Jewish carry cancer for second. Actually, this may be what Yousef was going to say. And I I actually reference use of here because you sieve. Recently on Twitter did something that I think was super important and I shared it as well. He put out a list of common anti-palestinian and anti Muslim tropes. And I think it's extremely important to realize that there aren't only anti semitic tropes out there. The good news is, you know, from the perspective of of this American Jew that even though we hear a lot of antisemitic tropes, and that's extremely problematic. There is generally acceptance in the United States that anti-semitism is not okay. The same is not true Islamic phobia the same as not true of anti Palestinian sentiment. And I think us if did a real service. I appreciate them. And the big problem that I had with the entire conversation around Representative Omar's comments is how much Slama phobia. There was in the entire spectacle. And I think also was very much present in what we saw off of a packs diet in the last several days. I and here's the thing about racism if it's. About anything. It's about power, and it's about using language and dividing people in a way to create power structures that benefit some over others. So if we're going to combat racism, it's important to understand how in our efforts of doing that we are contributing to these power dynamics. And I think in the singling out of Ilhan, Omar Representative Omar, and I think she was singled out in a way that nobody else has been for language that was I think mistaken to be antisemitic. And I don't think it was anti semitic. I think that entire process reinforced a tremendous amount of Slama phobia. And this is what I think also needs to be part of this discussion is the extent to which Slama Philby has become a major part of pro Israel advocacy, in the United States over the last thirty years. It's not all of pro Israel, advocacy. But by many actors in the pros. The people out of Milstein who was which is which is why it's okay to point the finger at Representative, Omar, but people are very reluctant to point the finger at the white supremacist Jason to quote, unquote, islamophobic tropes. Deborah before we finish off to us right now. These Elise Antibes bills being pushed through congress a lot of them by Republicans only by Republicans. But the Republicans have made it clear in took into the press that they see this as a way of dividing, the Democrats making them choose between that base and Israel, making them look anti-jewish. The president of the United States has accused the Democratic Party of being anti Jewish people of old people. Hello kettle. This is Paul you'll black. What should the Democrats be saying or doing in response to deal with this brazen cynical smear? It's a great question. There's the issue of the antibody s legislation on its merits, which we could have a long conversation about this is legislation that and my organization Americans for peace. Now, we've opposed for various reasons because we believe in free speech because we don't believe in the confusion of Israel with the settlements. So lots of lots of reasons for that. Frankly, I also think that having a congressional focus on these antibody s resolutions is a distraction from the real issues that are preventing peace between Israel and the Palestinians. And for that reason as well. I think they're problematic. I think there's demonization involved there that these Republicans are gonna stick. Sure, of course, I do and we should say that it goes beyond just the antibeach stuff. We have seen increasingly I think. We're going to see more of it instances in which Republicans explicitly use anti-semitism, or at least a purported desire to combat anti-semitism in order to defeat legislation. They don't like them exactly that has absolutely nothing to do with antisemitism. Amused of we're out of time. But I have to ask you this question because Deborah mention, you know, the the deflection from the reality on the ground. As APEC is meeting in Washington DC as Nancy Pelosi saying, we have shared values to the crowd Israel continues to besiege blockade the Gaza Strip, which is still considered occupied territory by the United Nations that have been rockets fired by groups inside of Gaza, HAMAs have denied responsibility, Israel, has blamed HAMAs Israel has been bombing Gaza at a level, which we haven't seen for several years since the last major conflict in two thousand fifteen tell our listeners why these Rayleigh argument that we all simply responding to rocket attacks on our homes could you live under rocket fire. Why is that? Erroneous disingenuous in your view. It's just completely devoid of context in history. There's a history there that is, you know, inconvenient for them maybe to discuss, but anyone who understands what has taken place over the past seventy years knows that the Gaza Strip did not exist as it does today that way forever. The vast majority of people living in the Gaza Strip are refugees from areas outside of the Gaza Strip. They've been living under military occupation. They've been living under siege. And they've had their basic rights and services denied to them. And what amounts to an open air prison. If you know, you you look at actions coming from the Gaza Strip completely devoid of of that context, you're never going to understand what's going on. Even even if you know, some folks on the pro Israel side would would like you to do that. I'll not note Yousef Mnaya temperature. Sean, we'll have to leave it there.

Of course then. Skiing was bombed dot com. And we went it to village in and she has a little prompt here and it says what was your most embarrassing moment she answers. I am clumsy so I break a lot a lot of things. I actually never really thought of as being lazy. Really have you more like Massih Z.. Overbearing horrible sister knowing but Kanzi not really on nine. Let's say that's your most embarrassing moment. Most embarrassing what what do you think is the most embarrassing moments in time when she was in sixteen years old and she fell asleep in a crib and then the babysitter we wait. I know who the babysitter she was babysitting. She was babysitting Larry. The bearings came back woken. Okay why would she. She's she's not looked at. It really wasn't even in Kim Anyway. You're telling me she's putting all the kids the oldest fleet none of them belonging to crib anymore but she looks at that crippled goes she gets rid. It Falls Asleep and appearance. Come home we the way she walking. Oh she's in the shall we wake. It was a crib in any of the children's rooms. I don't think so tell me. The CRIB wasn't in their room. I know and you know how sometimes she'd Babysit but parents would take the baby and the rest of the kids to babysit. So the baby's still young enough that they'll take him with so the crib cribs in their room visits phoebe of Oh. Gosh I believe that's that is that is definitely so your most embarrassing story is not that she is clumsy. She fell asleep in a crib while babysitting so bad. Okay Okay January ninth two dozen fifteen. She's fourteen at the time. I'm officially a race face. Even and she drew a picture of embraces of Clue Voice of course of course and I got water Wad Fosse to kit floss and a toothbrush but she drove them of course necessary etcetera and that was the older visiting. We take a picture of of that entry. I want to remember that for forever. This is a fun game. Give it to me. It's my turn to read something of Sammy's and think this is all from one journal. We have snow lunch. Okay so this one she just says draw time and she's drawn this horrifying building Where one I is awake and what I just as smile and it's kind of winking and the lips are cut in half off and the people walking by the building like this just looks like a pig turned into a girl and then it says there's more joins on the next page age? So she's drawn this girl Rosie and this other girl. She's labeled Peggy and I'm glad that she did did not think to continue jarring. Yikes then there's other drawings x Z. This one this year reading live from. You're journal Yes yes and it says. Wait to school today and later. We saw Romeo and Juliet. My Friend Bailey was Juliet and she told me she didn't want to kiss him. And every time you went to so she thought none and and I thought it was so funny they have it. Have you ever felt like that when someone went to Kiss Ya I definitely have you mean kind of kind of tell you tell okay okay deal deal. I'm I'm trying. Oh yeah so. We had my house this kid. He lives in south joining which is like what ten minutes away nine. Okay I thought it was finally so.

I had one of those Melanin in-in-in-in in moments Where I was I just left this like I just got off night train and I was walking home and this kid turns around and like I succeeded checking me out on the trade but he turns around? He's like I'm sorry but you're just like the most beautiful human being ever And I I would. I would feel reminiscent. I didn't tell you and I was flattered. Obviously Ave so it was like thank you.

I have to nine and trying to be rude but I have to use my hand to wipe up the from my Chin and of the law. It's like someone who's like winning and like Lick my chin. It was horrible and I was. I'm so uncomfortable. It was one of those words like I wish that I had been on my front porch where I could have just turned around and walked inside. I type of deal like you're able to do right but I couldn't so instead I was like sorry we don't kiss in public in America 'cause because This all sorry for context took place in Germany and so the kid is like we're in Germany now and I'm like I have to go to the grocery today Germany though just sometimes I mean just like just like as much as they do in America. Yeah they're still excuse for this little stranger to be. That's so weird. But he'd already gone my number numbered by that point and so that he was attacking me like listening out the sore like walk him. But somehow because facebook bought whatsapp he was able to find me on facebook and he started message me on facebook and I'm like But like like you think you would get the hint.

This is what I have vacation. And he sent me all his available dates that I could come and visit him of course of course of course right and I'm just like what in the so anyway. That's the long story of the moment that I had a weird yikes right aches featuring big aches a should we read. Maybe a more recent one of Sammy dishonestly thinking the same. Thank God.

Join us in our banters as we help you not just live life to the fullest. Let live it to the healthiest. Hey guys and welcome to GS MC, health and wellness podcast brought to you by the GS MC podcast network I'm your host, Cynthia and happy Wednesday. Everyone can't believe it is July first. Excuse me. When did we let time go by so fast? How is it already July? I didn't even realize July today I was typing up the podcast title for today's episode, and usually after the I'm finished typing the title we have to add the date. And I started typing six I was like wait. I'm like there's no thirty first and June. I chucked my phone like it's July, first crazy anyway. It's been a long day. It's definitely feels like mid week. It's Wednesday. I'm feeling a little more fatigued than usual today I didn't take. A NAP before I got here. Usually I take my nap after coming home from my first job, take a quick like one two hour nap. Well, that's not quick, but. One or two hour nap usually, and then I make sure and I feel like refreshed, but today I think at the chance to because your girl was distracted, watching net flicks, I know I know it's my bad so I feel super fatigue and of course when I'm fatigue. When I feel the most fatigue that's when I feel like I'm jiving behind the slowest people pet peeve of mine by the way I hate jiving behind slow people. And then I swear on my way to the studio here I was hitting every single red light, which never happened or rarely happens I should say so. It took me like an additional ten minutes to get here now is just like so over a let me get out of his car before I lose it because I just cannot deal with my life right now. I know that's me. Being extremely dramatic realized that but. Any who let's discuss what we're here to talk about I'm actually pretty stoked to talk about this new subject Oh my diet or the one one or one meal a day, Diet. And my first time hearing about this diet was actually not even that long ago probably a two months ago. I came to the studio and my boss here at GMC emceeing a podcast network he. Was Talk a lot about fitness because he's really into fitness and We both have like. Weight weight-loss journeys, and we talk about diet, nutrition and whatnot, and he told me that he started doing or implementing the Oh my diet, so he asked me. Have you heard of the Diet now? I like no. What is that first time ever hearing it two months ago? He explained to me, basically, he eats one meal a day, and he fits calories all within this window and my Woj. It's like how does that work? I'm skeptical. Always kept on I, hear of these types of diets me personally I'm going to be very upfront about my beliefs in nutrition I don't believe that people can survive off a one meal a day. for long for sustainability. It may work for a little while it may help you shut off those extra stubborn pounds at you haven't been able to do. you know I think it's just very short. Term Fixes with these diets, and I told my boss and he's implementing it and his wife is implementing. And Anyway. He started showing me all these youtube. Videos of I guess these famous youtubers who are known for their over the top one meal a day extravagant plates like they eat huge burgers with like four patties, and in French fries with all this in between each layer patty, and like don't eat a pizza with like barbecue I don't know all this like crazy fattening stuff and literally I couldn't even. Watch an entire video because it just made my stomach, her I'm like dude. My stomach could never like that just looks painful. That looks like my guy would not reject thou okay. So that was my first impression of Oma Diet It doesn't seem sustainable, it seems. kind of I'm again. I'm being ridiculous and I. Don't want anyone Getting offended by what my opinions are because again, there are just opinions Is just a little ridiculous to me. I, don't know. How does that work like Oh one meal a day? I literally cannot I would be like the worst mood which my boss did. Tell me that the I like weaker, so it did take a while for his body to adjust out. He was cranky and really bad downfall withdrawal. But he says now that he's been doing it for a couple months. He's fine and. He's doing for other health related reasons that I won't get an to today, but I'll specifically talk about Oh mad diet in terms of utilizing it in weight loss. If you follow weight loss trends, then you've probably heard about intermittent fasting, which is like the new millennial thing, right which basically has dieters foregoing food for up to sixteen hours, then consuming their meals during the remaining eight hours of the day. It's restrictive, but not crazy grueling. The Oh my God. Diana however takes this to the extreme, I think. Oh Man, again stands for one meal a day. The idea is too fast for twenty three hours straight. twenty-three be to correct. Fast for twenty three hours straight, and then consume one larger meal and a sixty minute window. Lately Oh man has been gaining popularity with people swearing by It has a weight loss method as well as a way to tackle chronic disease and other health issues and again. That's what my boss really told me. What his Wi- his motives were to start the Omega Diet were for You know health related issues, not necessarily for weight loss And that's just by reading that out loud. It's kind of alarming to me. How are you supposed to fit? All of Your Calorie? Your calories in that small window. and. If you work. I'll say you worked on the morning. Eighty, eight am to nine am, but your window to e isn't until five PM. How would that work when it comes to your fitness and? Trying to gain muscle, that's the goal or whatever the case be. You need to eat protein. Within an hour window after. Exercise, so I don't really understand how that would really benefit one's body he. ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE A. Consistent Jim Goer or you're just someone who loves to work OUT GOPHER RUN CYCLE, whatever the case may be your protein intake. Niece happened almost immediately after you're done working out to replenish up your muscles and. I don't it just again? It's I'm quite puzzled by this whole fad of almond and I'm going to explain to. You guys basically on today's episode. How do you follow the? Style Diet can actually lead to weight loss, and if you do the Diet, was, should you eat a log? So explain some side effects side effects of risk that people should know about Oh my God, and I also share with the guys celebrities who swear by Oh my God an I actually when I pulled up the list celebrities. Pretty surprised by the people on that list I was reading each of their cases and on Mike. Wow like I would've never expected for this specific person to eat. The Oh mad style, or these are people who have tried it I'm not one hundred percents sure if these people are still Implementing the Oma Diet to this day, but this was a group of celebrities pooled from. Two thousand seventeen research so about three years ago, not that long go. We'll see if I wonder if they're still doing it. So you guys I'm going to see a very brief break right now and when we come back, we'll talk more about the Omeday Diet. Are you looking to learn more about the latest trends from the fitness world? Are you confused by all the different trends that are out there? The MC fitness podcast is the place for you. The GS MC fitness podcast is the place to come for people of all skill and interest levels. Join us as we explore the latest trends in the fitness world. Does that new exercise really work? Should I try yoga? Whatever your question chances are good. You'll find an answer on the GMC fitness podcast. What's up, guys and we'll come back to GMC, health and wellness podcast so just like many diets Oh. Man has a host of rules. For starters, your one meal should be eaten in the same four hour time block every day, so you on a consistent schedule, so say you give yourself the window of being able to eat between the hours of four pm through eight PM. So in that four hour window you're supposed to consume your one large meal within that window and say on Monday you eat your meal at six PM. And then the following day you eat it at four and then the next day. It's I seven. So that works as long as it stays within that four hour window that you set yourself for. I might even read people setting their windows from ten PM to in the morning so I. Don't I'm one hundred percents sure if the exact timeframe really matters, I think all that matters is. Whatever timeframe you choose a hassle, say consistent. And you're allowed to drink beverages during her twenty three hour, foss but they have to be calorie free. You guys, so you have to drink things like black coffee or water You can even drink tea certain tease I think t like. A Gat like tea or maybe t without sugar, milk or anything like that so. Unless you, WANNA be sipping on water, plane, tea, or straight up black coffee then I. Don't know really think about that. You guys twenty three hour fast all you can drink as coffee, water and tea. You must also. Must Consume your one meal on a standard dinner plate nothing larger, so obvious that you wanna be able to eat an enormous solid in a huge solid like mixing bowl a has to be a standard dinner. Play yet to your food. In of course, all of youtube videos that I watched When my boss we explained to me, man was. They were all eating in platters at serve at Thanksgiving dinner table, so they probably go very excessive, because it's youtube, and you know views and whatnot, but according to a sports, Dietitian base in Connecticut and author of healthy. Pot Cook. Cookbook Dana Angelo White. She suggests standard dinner plate nothing larger. And no piling on heaping amounts of food whether you choose to eat whatever you choose to eat can't rise higher than three inches on your plate. Other than that, dieters can in theory eat whatever they like so? Again for Oma your once a meal day has to be on a standard dinner plate, and it can't be any more than three inches high. which if you think about it? Three inches is still kind of tall for you to be able to eat food I mean. Think about three inches. That's kind of a law right? Yes, no, maybe so. That's the upside to out. Oh my God you that you don't really need to consider your calories or worry about the exact nutritional profile the food you eat as long as you're saving all of your calories for that one period of time. That's a New York City Base nutritionist Natalie Rizzo author of the no brainer nutrition guide for every. Reiner has to say that that's the biggest. You don't really worry about anything else. Just stick to that window That four hour window you chose for yourself. So, I I someone who dislikes you know, tracking and crunchy numbers. Calories. You find that excessive, or you find that boring or he's fine that just. Irritable. All Matt has that appeal that you literally don't need to think about it I mean it's in the name of her book, right? The no brainer guide so. I guess there is an upside to it Again me personally with my schedule the way I just believe nutrition works. That's still doesn't really sound appealing to me. I don't mind tracking my food. I don't mind county my calories. I believe that's like the most stable way. Honestly, is your calories, your calorie counting and you don't need to count your calories every single day for the rest of your life, you guys. You can literally track your calories for a couple of weeks. Just so you get a general idea of what it is. You're putting in your body. What it is you are consuming and eating, and then after the couple of weeks of you consistently eating, and that men are daily, then you can you know stopped counting and just kind of eyeball What you're serving sizes and whatnot, so it's really not that hard I think. People are just very convenient base like anything that provides a little amount of inconvenience and anyone's life. It's like we want no parts of it right. That's just how our culture is built and I think when it comes to Your Diet Nutrition again I've said this multiple times throughout this podcast You shouldn't be taking shortcuts you know. This is your health. Health is literally in my opinion. Top three most important things in this life that we have and we have to make sure that we are taking good care of her meaning, our health and you know anyway. I'm going on a tangent right now. I'm just like. Saying things lemon. Give back to own matt right so Oma Diet. Can Oh mad Diana lead to weight loss, okay? So again this is an extreme level of intermittent fasting, no doubt. About Dr, Natalie Rizzo notes that there is some positive research surrounding fasting in general, showing that fasten could aid in weight loss as was assists in preventing chronic disease. Other research suggests that intermittent fasting helps regulate blood glucose level, which may be therapeutic for those with diabetes. Yet. Whatever weight loss or health benefits you see on the Omega, Diet will likely be short. lived. You guys okay? It will be short-lived. The drawbacks are obvious not eating for twenty three hours will probably lead to serious hunger lack of energy. fatigue and uncontrollable cravings, so you've really got to weigh out the pros and cons here you guys and that's why I don't really believe an old man is. Really support it again. This is just my opinion, so do not get offended if you are on Omayyad. If my boss listens to this podcast of please don't get offended laws of again is just my opinion and how I think about nutrition and even Dr Naughtily Rizzo agrees that you can lose weight for obvious reasons. You are Not Eating for a very prolonged period of time. That is why. That is what AIDS in weight loss. Not necessarily the style or technique or the hidden magic of Oma. You are literally depriving yourself of food for twenty three hours. That's all you're losing weight. What's more fasting for so long might make you so famished. You ended up choosing the wrong foods when it is time to. We like Greasy fries and Double Bacon burritos which yes, people do eat all this stuff in there. Oh Mad. Diets which I've seen in Youtube. true that these are allowed on the Diet. No food is off limits for your one our meal. But face planning in high fat low. Sodium Or not. High fat low nutrition foods could leave you taking in more calories than you need not to mention it can cause a lot of stomach, discomfort and mood changes lie I mean that even gave me stomach discomfort. Just watching those videos on I wasn't even. I'm not even doing. Oh, man, and it's just like that is a huge Something to really consider if you are considering in implementing the Omega, diet is that that could be a major drawback that you are so hungry throughout the entire day that when it is that one hour window for you to consume your calories, you literally just anything INCI e the lease nutrient dense foods, and we know a lot of the least nutrient. Dense foods are really tasty, but they're not filling like they fill your hunger for about five minutes, and then there your again extremely hungry so. When. Someone deprived themselves of food for twenty four hours. They tend to lose control and overeat when it's time to eat again. This can lead again to choosing unhealthy options and eating way more. Than what feels natural in one sitting? PLUS OBI tough getting enough of the nutrients. Your body needs each day. Joking aside it would be fantastically difficult to meet. Your nutrient needs eating this way. I'm sure a well-balanced multivitamin and Omega three supplements will be helpful, but I would still have concerns about. You know people. There needs you still need to meet your vitamin And multivitamin profile with foods, not just with supplements. Any guys. Any calorie deficit you achieve would also likely promote muscle breakdown. As, your body turns to burning muscle for energy, and if you're an athlete, or you're trying to build strength, build mass, the Diet can definitely backfire. So you guys I'm going to come to very brief. Break Right now and when we come back more on Omah Diet. Tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts now listen close and here this out. There's a podcast network that covers just about everything that you've been searching. The golden state media concepts podcast network is here.

Help them on this podcast, so we're now going to be diving into if you do decide to try the Omega. Diana was should do eat. If you decide to go down this route. Don't fall into the trap of scarfing down anything you crave. Okay. I know it's hard, but you must not do it. This diet allows you to eat whatever you want. And personally I would suggest a well balanced meal with healthy carbs, protein and healthy fight fats just like eating three meals. A day still applies to this one meal a day. Since, you're trying to make up for the calories you skip throughout the day. Feel free to load up on foods with the lots of healthy fats like avocado, olive oil an. and you know for protein sources again. Double Up, so just basically. Double up your servings. Also what's really important you guys Abou- Omand is to make sure that you add in variety. Because our nutrient needs are so diverse variety would be essential. Mix it up by eating different things every day, so you don't miss out on nutrients, and even if you. Aren't doing all mad. I think everyone should implement this shoe. Even I should implement this a little bit more mixing up. My died a little bit I think I have a very strong tendency to stick to same foods. Eat the same foods, breakfast, lunch and dinner and I mean it's convenient. Right especially. If your meal prepping, you don't need to think about prepping food or cooking or cleaning is like it's all ready there. So again. Those are the important things to consider about. It's not really about what should we be more how you should eat? How should you build your plate? When you are on the Oh man Diet so again? It's just making sure it's a well balanced meal with healthy carbs, your protein and healthy fats, and you know just doubling up a little bit on the servings, and to mix it up every now, and then adds some variety in your meals, especially with this one meal a day since you're literally eating one meal. As opposed to a person WHO's eating three to four meals a day, they can mix it up throughout the day right so very important things to keep in mind. And now you guys. We're going to continue on with the conversation about You know more about what you need to know and I'm GONNA. Get a little bit deeper into benefits of Oman and clinical experience. Clinicians experience in prescribing intermittent fasting and low-carbon attrition frequently use only as a tool to help with weight loss dolls when a patient is eating low carb, but isn't losing weight as expected temporary use of Oh man can help kick-start weight loss so again. You guys I want to reiterate that. Oh Mad can kick-start the weight loss, but it is not as short-lived. It's not sustainable. Many, who e an Oh man pattern, do so for the ease and only preparing food and eating one want each day. This can be especially helpful for those who travel frequently those who perform shift work, and though hectic and busy schedules. Thing about how much time you spend planning shopping for and preparing meals, and we haven't even mentioned the worst part which is dealing with dirty dishes. If you eat three meals per day. How much time could you save cutting that by two-thirds? You'd be saving a lot of time, right? As a form of time restricted eating an intermittent fasting. Omar may help reduce hyperinsulinemia control diabetes and improve Metabolic Syndrome. Consistent clinical experience shows that widening the fasting window can help improve these metabolic conditions, so when used appropriately. Oh Mad could potentially deliver better results than shorter fasts. Some CEO mad as an easy way to reduce calorie intake. When you only allow yourself to eat and a thirty to sixty minute time window, it is physically difficult to exceed your daily Calorie needs. That's why this works is. This. Pattern of eating works. Because God wants a meal is like how everyone should be eating not because. NO-NO is because you're literally just an a calorie deficit again at all traces back to eating a calorie deficit expanding more calories. Than what you're consuming and it is physically I wouldn't say impossible because they couldn't nothing. Life is impossible right, but it is a very very very very very difficult to accede into a calorie surplus within a sixty minute window. So that is something to consider and just remember you guys with any died that you do it. All just boils down to you. Eating fewer calories, AKA calorie deficit. It's not important But it is shirt challenging for those who benefit from a firm schedule that restricts snacking ALMAC can be. The strategy that works best you know, I, know a lot of my clients come to me. No one has really specifically talked about Oh. Bread I have had a few talk to me about intermittent fasting like I said. This is the new millennial trend going on right now and. That strategy works again if you You know have a tendency to snack and you WANNA limit your snacking, obviously own mad or any style of intermittent fasting could work for you send. You are only allowed to eat during a specific time. So now I WANNA get into some of the concerns about own mind, and I think the first major thing that I want to emphasize. Is that all mad? Can High End eating disorders okay? Any eating pattern that promotes a cycle of food restriction followed by extra food. Consumption can trigger disorted. disordered eating behavior in susceptible people, so if you have a history of eating disorders, you should probably avoid own mind I know especially for all my young listeners out there you know who are constantly being fed all of these images by the media of the air quote perfect body. Don't listen to that. Okay, and if you're trying to lose weight. There is more sustainable ways to lose weight then implementing own mad so again if you have already. Difficulties with body dismore Feo, eating disorders eating behaviors than I would one hundred percent avoid Oma Diet and Yet so that's all what I have to say about that. Just being very careful. That doesn't spark any ideas in your head about food restrictions starvation. None of that has not the point of Omayyad however. I think my biggest concern with omit and why I would never. I can't think of the word right now. Why would never recommend that to anybody? Because I wouldn't want to be responsible for telling a client, you know, limit yourself for twenty three hours, no eating for coffee, water and T. and E. Within this window. You just never know what. Issues that person may have bought this more issues like and I'm speaking from experience because I feel like a lot of young women men, too, but I know a lot of women have issues, or they go through appeared in their life where they look at themselves and are like just completely disgusted by this in the mirror, and I've been a victim of this where I literally in high school I was like I I remember when I hit a hundred pounds, and I thought I was the most obese person in this world like I literally was so obese i. Didn't want to eat for dinner I would try to skip my meals. I would lie to. My mom would be like I'm not hungry. But really I was starving, so I feel like a lot of young people fall into this idea Thi-, if you starve yourself and restrict yourself, then you'll lose weight, and you'll become desirable, impre pretty, and you'll land up modeling, or whatever the case may be, but I'm here. Here to tell you is as a now freshly turned twenty five year old that that is not true. Get that idea out of your head You know there's no perfect image, so don't believe all of these images that were constantly fed to the media and yeah I know. I went on a tangent again, but again even eating disorder or any type of unusual eating behavior pattern. Avoid Oman at all costs. So you guys kind to another very brief. Break Right now and when we come back more on Ahmed Diet. The, since live in happiness, podcast takes you on a journey of exploration we'll discuss tried and true methods alongside the latest rents of how to Beth.

Hey guys welcome back to GS. Mc Health on this podcast, so we're GONNA now dive into chronic caloric restriction. Creating an environment where you naturally reduced caloric intake is one of the clinical benefits of Oman. The other side of that coin is that it can be difficult to obtain adequate. Adequate calories if eating Oh mad, long-term on a daily basis. Omayyad can then start to look a lot like chronic caloric restriction. Although? Chronic caloric restriction helps with initial weight loss. It poses long-term concerns because it tends to lower your resting metabolic rate, which makes weight loss very difficult to maintain. That's why all of these fad diets their quick fixes to me their non-sustainable okay. It's not meant for long term. Just as Omega promotes caloric restriction. It can also lead to protein restriction. Since protein helps, you feel full and satisfied. It can be difficult to your entire daily requirement in one sitting for example D. The average five foot ten Eighty one kilogram pound male should about one hundred and ten grams of protein daily. If, you need a sixteen ounce rabbi plus a couple of fried eggs in one sitting then they may not be a concern. But if that sounds like a lot to you than your protein and take maybe too low with daily mind, and let's not even dive into if you're doing Oh mad while being on Hido. and you're plant based. AIDS GONNA. Make it a lot more challenging. If You are trying to consistently remain in Ketosis. I would recommend restricting net carb intake to less than twenty grams per day. But in general. I would also advise the you spread out your carb intake so much to so each meal has no more than ten grams. With Oh, man you, we only one meal, so you could theoretically e all twenty grams of carbs sitting. Wow, that is still compatible with Akito Diet. Those who are highly insulin resistant may respond to a twenty Gram Carb load with Glucose and insulin spikes. Some find the consistent cycle of no food followed bar, large amount of food causes of domino discount for an even diarrhea. You guys, that is some of the negative side effects of mad. Although it's hard to estimate how many Omayyad eaters experienced this? Clinical expert panel considers it uncommon, but not unheard of. For those who needed take prescription medications with food more than once per day. Omar presents a significant hurdle. I mean it's in the name right Oman, one meal a day, whereas medication of its asking you to eat. These. are in I, but you know. Take the Medicare patient with food like three meals a day. Then that's definitely an issue. If this is a case for you. With your healthcare provider if It exists if not, then is likely not safe for you. Now let's talk about Omayyad paired with exercise. Some people find it difficult to exercise fasting. If. You're active. This would make following an old map pattern challenging. However I would encourage you to at least try fasted. Exercise I some findings suggest that I may help with weight and fat loss. Although the literature is inconclusive at this point. which that's another big hurdle for me as well I'm a very active individual. I go to the gym at least five times a week and so oh, mad would impose a huge hurdle in my personal life. And really quick, let's talk about some of the warning signs I when it comes to Oman. Mega will do well and even thrive with time, restricted eating and intermittent fasting. Others are more susceptible to side effects. feeling a little, hungry, and a little low in energy expected, but feeling unwell, extremely fatigued, dizzy, nauseated or having a other severe side. Effects are abnormal responses to intermittent fasting in Oman. If you experience any of these severe side effects, Oman is likely not the best choice for you. You can work with her doctor to determine if any changes like greater adaptation to low carb and shorter fasting, regiment ca make an option in the future. So with all of us, being said, let's discuss what the science says. The science on intermittent fasting and time restricted eating is growing seemingly on a weekly basis. The problem is that different studies investigate different protocols for instance. One recent study showed that a fourteen to ten time. Restricted eating pattern can promote weight loss and metabolic health. How do we know of these benefits occur with. If fourteen to ten is helpful is twenty three to one better. A might be. If lowering insulin levels and mobilizing fat stores for fourteen hours as beneficial and make sense and doing it for twenty three hours could be even more so. Yet, this assumes that a longer timeframe dozen introduce any counterbalancing negative effects. Other studies suggest longer. Fasting windows have net benefit. Although none capture oneida eating perfectly. For instance another trial showed that in these or that in obese people patients with diabetes. Two weeks of eating within seven hour don't. Reduce Fat, fasting and Postprandial Blood Glucose. More than eating with thirteen hour window. Closer to a standard Omayyad. A two dozen nine crossover study compared eating meals per day to eating the exact same food, all omit in twenty four eighty window. Diet was fifteen percent protein. Thirty five percent fat. And fifty percent carbs. During the eight week period of eating within a four hour window participants laws four point four pounds of body fat while maintaining their Lena's. By contrast lost. No way are fat while eating three meals per day. In addition immediately after the time restricted eating portion of the study. Patients had lower triglycerides. While, the authors warned about the higher ldl. Looking further we see that the total cholesterol to. Radio remained the same after both diets at three four and the T G to HDL ratio improved in the time restricted eating group. Therefore even though LDL went up, overall lipid profiles improved during time restricted eating. Interestingly the subjects reported increased hunger throughout the day, or throughout the time the eight within a four hour window. But keep in mind. This is a high carb, Diet. Would have been different a low carb diet. Clinical experience suggests that yes, they would have been less hungry, but we don't have comparative. Data. So. It seems reasonable to extrapolate the idea or this data to Oman and predict that it may also provide same or greater benefits. But we still don't know. The benefit remains for long term daily Ahmed since we have. Hesitation about the daily use of own mind. The lack of long term data is concerning. That is why alternate day fasting comes in. Alternate Day fasting essentially every other day. You're implementing. Omit the one meal a day. Eat Normally for day then followed the pattern for day. This addresses concerns about conic caloric restriction because every other day is normal. Alternating with the fasting calorie restricted day. One study compared ADF to chronic caloric restriction and found it was better tolerated and delivered similar benefits for weight, loss and body composition. While none of these studies definitely show Matt is healthy and sustainable. We can reasonably extrapolate from the data and suggests that Obama can likely be a part of a healthy sustainable eating period. So you guys were in cut into very short. Break Right now and when we come back I'm going to reveal to you guys finally. Celebrities who are on Omega Diet or who have tried it. We'll be right back. Are you tired of the name on news or you?

Guys welcome back to GMC health on this podcast, so we're now moving into the final segment today show, and we're GONNA be revealing well. I'm going to be revealing celebrities who have tried Omayyad Diet. What are the thoughts and Yes? Let's get to it. We all know that celebrities are guilty of trying every crazy diet in the book from eating nothing but baby food to weeklong. Juice cleanses pretty ridiculous you know. It's pretty common within the celebrity. But. Probably the strangest Diet we've ever heard of is the one meal a day Diet Oh. My Diet and it's exactly what it sounds. So again you basically eat nothing all day and then in the evening you eat one meal. Apparently supposed to keep her daily caller intake Tikolo, those resulting in Weight Loss Aka. That is what you call ladies and gentlemen eating an calorie deficit. And the last meal doesn't even have to be that healthy either. Since, everyone wants to know what Miracle Diet will help them lose weight and other unhealthy food they want the only ones die has been a bit of an ongoing fat. But nutrition is worn against it. They say skipping meals might actually make you gain weight. But you definitely don't want to get meals to save calories, because as such your body up for larger fluctuations, an insulin and glucose, and could be setting you up for more fat gain instead of fat loss. In, fact, a two dozen seven study revealed that most people who skip meals end up eating the same amount of calories they would have normally a since they tend to overeat, which makes sense since they've been practically starving themselves all day. There's also the issue of you know. Low blood. Sugar and other health risks to think about when partnering and active lifestyle with little to no nutrients but hey. Ask Your nutritionist and seek professional advice if you're thinking of doing this yourself. So the first person I'm going to mention WHO's tried Omayyad? I do not know of these celebrities are still on omid. The list I have here is from two thousand seventeen, and they have all tried this specific diet so first person we are getting Jersey. Shore Personality extraordinaire. Jeff. Look out and say Jay while not J. Well. Nicole Policy Aka sn icky. We all know our girls Snooky from Jersey Shore.

Neck celebrity who has tried and implement the Oma. Diet is actually channing tatum. The Magic Mike Star surprisingly manages to fulfill his sustenance through checkers hamburgers alone. He said he told you Q.. When I was finally making money I knew exactly what I needed five dollars and sixty seven cents. I'd have one meal a day. I would go to chuckers and get the number one with everything. Neck celebrity, who's tried Omagh Diet is Liz Hurley or Elizabeth Hurley. The fifty two year old maintains her figure by drinking mugs of hot water in the morning, skipping lunch, and only having one meal. She says the only meal I have his dinner. I'm on a good old fashioned locale diet and going to bed hungry. No, no, no, no, no couldn't be me. All right next person as PIPPA Middleton. So people are Kate Middleton's little sister made headlines for having the best bum Britain, but she maintains that using the sturt foot down. The Diet consists of drinking three sturt food juices and eating only one meal a day, though man. It's unclear PA- on the Diet, but according to in us, she used as a pre wedding slimmed-down. Next we got my girl Megan Fox. Back into dozen ten, the teenage Mutant Ninja! Turtles Star revealed to Allure magazine that she could go a whole week without eating. She also revealed during a red carpet interview back then that she only ate one meal a day around ten PM. However these days. The mom of two as the Palais Diet, so we think are days of starvation. Are you know they're over? Next we. Brooke, Shields? The fifty two year old actress says she doesn't Diet. She simply too tired to eat. She said into them five.

If you go right to sleep, you get reflects which burns your vocal chords. Next person who implemented Oma Diet while walking the streets of earth. Was? Hugh Hefner. Yes Hugh Hefner. It's is not eating the key to a long life. So the playboy owner is was rumored to eating only one meal a day, usually between midnight and five am so as window was pushed back a lot more. Next we have Corey Feldman. The former child star and walking symbol of viral embarrassment, was exposed by one of his former band members. She said in an interview that Corey only once a day. Then, we have Montel Williams. The former talk show host was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in nineteen, ninety nine, which forced him to. to eat a pretty strict diet. He said he told Everyday Health magazine. I drink about forty eight ounces a day. That constitutes about fifty percent of what I eat and then I have one meal a day. Some PRO team. So pretty extreme I literally would not be able to do that. And then we also Joanna Lumley so the absolute fabulous starred looks well fabulous for seventy one years of age. But. She had a star herself to get there. She said in two thousand fifteen. I don't eat any meals I. Eat a bit throughout the day I'm hungry, but on a big meal. I'll have some nut or maybe some crisp, and that's enough. I'm sorry, but that's definitely not enough for me. Sorry not, sorry. And then last, but not least Bhagat Conrad Bromfield. The male motto attributed Lean Physique and rock. HARD ABS to eating well next to nothing. He told G. Q. Magazine. My thing is once a day.

The Future of Distance Learning: How Will Schools Reopen?

"Education is extremely crucial to society, but online education pales in comparison to tending live classes with peers and teachers. Education cops breed the next generation of doctors, lawyers teachers, etc.. So without segregation, there would be no doctors and teachers, and without those professions, the world essentially would be chaos. This is fly. Is the original kid's debate show I'm Noah Golden Your host for today's episode on distance learning its problems. How will return in the fall and how you can make the most of this difficult time? Welcome to the show. As we enjoy summer vacation. We must consider are inevitable return to school and what that return, we'll look like. From mid March until early June, we all experienced a new type of school. This is learning or remote learning. You may be thinking. Oh that was a one time deal. Everything is going to be fine. Commit August and then it'll be just like twenty nine thousand nine. While for the most part you're wrong. School will be different whether that be in the form of a hybrid model, a continuation of fulltime online learning or somewhat full return complete with lots of medical procedures. As much as I want to hang with my friends like normal. We have to listen to the facts and prioritize public health. According to CNN many of the plans to reopen that have been announced so far involve social, distancing medical equipment, testing, isolation plans and regular cleaning protocols. Some schools are also exploring hybrid models combining in person and virtual learning. One principal is for certain schools need to be prepared. Rather than proposition versus opposition, the debate today will revolve around a series of open ended questions, but don't worry. There will still be arguing. Before we begin. Here are two words to keep in mind, public and private schools. Public, schools are government funded and have no cost to enroll while private schools are independently run an almost always have a cost to enroll. Okay, now that you're ready, let's get into it. Although this episode was initially recorded on June, Nineteenth, two, thousand twenty. This is the first time we are releasing it joining me now to discuss this learning is fifteen year old, Omasu coal and thirteen year old Benjamin. Wong the host of the kid. CEO podcast, which I encourage. You guys check out. How you doing I'm doing good. How are you good, Ben, how are you? Thanks for asking. Does all doing good with your summer. Today I will ask you guys several questions about distance learning, and what a return to school may look like. So the first question I'm going to start off with is about balancing public health and education, as we reopened schools in early August and mid August. Four years education has fostered new generations of scientists, lawyers, teachers and countless individuals who have strengthened our world as school district's plan, their students, full or part-time return in the fall, a debate on education versus public health will emerge much like the ongoing issue of the economy versus public. Why is education so important to society? And how can we find a balance between public health and education? As we reopened schools, Ben? What's your take on that? Well No to be frank like you said. Education hops breed the next generation of doctors, lawyers teachers, etc.. So without the education, there would be no doctors, teachers and without those professions. The world essentially would be chaos. So now finding a balance between public education is a very big question, but at the end of the day education means nothing if there's no people to be educated. Because of this philosophy, we have to make sure we reopen schools beyond caution. There needs to be a ninety nine point nine nine nine percent have. or we will risk a second operate directed towards the next iteration, which will be even more detrimental. So ben you talked about how we can learn if there's no kids to be taught anything. Well kids aren't at higher risk as adults are. According to harbored, many kids actually have no symptoms, those that do get sick tend to experience milder symptoms such as a low fever fatigue cough at some children's have had severe complications, especially those with underlying illnesses, but most of them did okay with the coronavirus. So we need to make sure, and you also mentioned that ninety nine point nine nine percent guarantee that there will be no one dying or anything, but that's sort of unrealistic. You also mentioned that we can reopen until much later are that's correct vaccine? Oman. Is that realistic waiting until we get a vaccine? Most experts have put getting a productive vaccine until early to mid twenty twenty. One is bench, plan and realistic. I don't agree with Ben's plan. I agree with him on the part where education is extremely crucial to society, but online education pills in comparison to attending classes with peers and teachers and distance, learning lacks the social aspects in the benefits of hands on learning as well that the teachers can provide I believe that we should go back as soon as we can. With all the safety, precautions place obviously like masks, sanitizing handwashing and syncing, and in addition monitoring people symptoms, so it could be careful to limit the spread, but I don't agree with Ben. When he said we should wait till we find a vaccine because we don't know when this vaccine will come about, we don't know when it's GonNa. Happen and I don't think we could risk waiting that long, which could be a detriment to students education in learning? Like you said face to face. Interaction is really important, and as we all know, most kids aren't getting the same education in distance learning compared to face to face, so it is very important to get back to school as soon as possible, but we do to make sure that there are certain precautions in place you know such as monitoring symptoms having maybe nurses in the office contact tracing Ben. How would you disagree with the fact that we to get back to school as soon as possible? I want to adjust something. You said earlier also a more dressed. The question something said so earlier, said about the Harvard Study We'll see the reason so little kids are being affected is that there's much smaller sample size because kids are not out and about as much as adults. So that way cases in kids is much less hence the number of serious cases cases also much less, I'll put it simpler if there's a five percent chance of a serious case, and there are one hundred kids than there will be five affected kids with serious case. But if there's one thousand adults than there will be fifty adults with the serious case. So looking at it that way, it's not really much of a comparison, and if you allow these kids to public before we have the high guarantee of safety I can almost certainly say that we will probably have even if a little bit more cases in kids and therefore more serious cases in kids. And now to just Oma. I understand that kids need to go back to school, but I'll say it again. We should really stay closed until bigoted vaccine. Especially considering the fact, they will be colder fall winter than summer. Prompting the virus is spreading easier. And, also we've seen it far when states reopen too early. And then it's not a coincidence. The cases in those states start rising again. So do we really want to risk a young precious life? When if it was your best friend? Or what if it was your sibling? And so now to the audience. What's more important, your life or your friends? Then know. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think when he mentioned about the kids versus adults in cases I think he should say that kids they can handle the virus more easily and more kids get over it or recover from the viruses easier than adults do. So Ben. Yes, that's what I was saying. Ben is saying that the kids actually at the same rate of infection are not the same, but the same death rate as adults because there's because there's less kids who are getting the virus. There actually a lot of kids actually if I can correct I'm not saying that the rate is necessarily the same I'm saying that the reason why does fewer non percentage but number fewer number of serious cases is because there are food number fewer number of cases overall. Yes, but it's also related to the fact that kids aren't as acceptable as older adults. I mean exactly. Exactly yeah, it's not just a sample size. Of course you, so you're saying that okay, because there's less get you. The virus is going to be less kids with serious cases, but that's not. That's not what we're looking at. We're also looking at that. Kids are actually less susceptible to the virus and that they won't. There's less likely rate that they will die so. How would you respond to Ben saying that? Ben I. Don't agree with you on the part where we wait until we find care because we have no clue when this would happen in, it's just like actually not necessarily. Vaccine and I feel like it's just impractical to wait that long because we don't know the risks that we take. With the lack of education or lack of materials that. Can Be provided to students in this time. Sir, looking at a few different scenarios here Ben is taking the more cautious route and saying we should win to is a vaccine and everything should be digitalized until that time if that is the case, we need to make sure that our distance learning is drastically improved from where it has been these past three months. Oma, you're saying that we should enter into a sort of hybrid mode where we have a few classes at school, and then a few classes at home, so you're sort of trying to balance out to factors, we have here public health and education, because you need to make sure that these kids are getting the best education possible. Is that correct? Exactly! All right. So now we're GONNA move onto the second question, which is about the divide between public and private schools in learning the center on reinventing public education, examined one hundred public school districts and found that just twenty. Two of them are requiring real time teaching, while only ten of those systems are teaching live in all grades including early elementary school, while a lot of private schools have more face to face learning Mrs according to The New York Times. How has this turning divided public and private schools? And why might that be the case? I'll give it to I I. Think distance-learning is further dividing the private and public schools, because private schools admittedly have resources available than the average public school system and private schools in most part, had their students fully equipped for electronic communication as a necessity public schools. However, it's not as required those who can't afford. Resources would not necessarily be provided them, and this just makes it that much harder for those already struggling to learn from online learning. Ben, what is your take on private and public schools in their handling of distance learning? So for this question I wanted to bring up an article from New York Times, so and this article talks about the difference between online learning in a private school called Chicago Jewish, school and public. School SP- ruins elementary. It brings up one of the teachers at the private school and her viewpoint of distance learning so every school they are students. Spend have key minutes working on math and writing. then. They split into small reading groups. And that's later followed by lunch and recess break. The even have Yoga, art, music and cooking classes. So what does this feel similar to? Well real life learning. Now let's take a look at a student from sprints the public option. So I won't use the student's name for privacy reasons, but I'll call him Tom. Tom Did not see his teacher until late April, which is sometime after school is closed. Because the school had to spend lots of weeks training teachers and distance learning. So fast forward to when they actually are trying everyday. Tom's teacher has video meeting for an hour in the morning, and this is Tom's on the hour of real time learning. To add to that only about eleven of the twenty six, which is less than half attend. So at this point, it's incredibly obvious. The coronavirus has indeed widen the gap between private and public schools. But think about this even more. Let's take a look at it from a business point of view. If the private schools are unable to provide quality content during COVID, they risk students both current and new, whereas public schools from business dance will continue to receive government funding, no matter what. Also Public School districts have increasingly important task of caring for kids. WHO CAn't receive. Dirty planning three million students receive females in two thousand, sixteen, according to NPR. So the philosophy of private schools having much more to lose has always been there, but the coronavirus has just made it more evident. And also to be cleared by no means MSA. I don't care I tend to public school at I. Love it there on the heaters care for me incredibly, but I'm just saying. The private schools have so much more at stake. So both you guys are saying of course that public schools might have had a slower response to the coronavirus because they don't have as many resources. Lot of their kids are economically disadvantaged, so it takes a lot of time to make sure to get that those electronics out to those kids but Ben. You talked about how the business standpoint of it. You know you say you're saying that. Private schools do have more at stake because they need to. To make sure that the parents are paying for the private schools, so they have money at stake. Why is that case that really shouldn't be the case when you look at it from the education standpoint, both of these schools, private and public schools have education at stake, and education is very very significant in terms of it should be valued by all teachers, and yes, public schools don't have as many resources, but they really both should feel at pressure. Oman, what do you have to add to that? I agree with you. Both on types of schools should have pressure for their students to be the best that they can. And considering the amount of public schools versus amount of private schools. This should be a factor that we change in public schools for example I feel like it's very important for kids to be present in class, and this is a factor that shouldn't change with online learning, and they're exceptions sat. Some students face because of their situations at home and they're also. They need to be taken into account for which. Which is why I suggest a synchronous classes, which is also what my school did for the borders at my school, so because of maybe time differences or any conflicts whatsoever there should be classes that should be held based off each student. Obviously, it's GonNa be hard to help each student because they're going to be so many, but they should hold classes, not necessarily at specific times, because not everyone is going to be able to make their in me very difficult for certain people, which is why a synchronous classes work as well. So you're saying that that doesn't necessarily have to be a set schedule everyday like normal school, but there should be the option where you have still hands on learning activities and recorded lectures so that they can still have that same sort of face to face learning environment. A lot of public schools have a lot of public school. Districts have made a really good response to the coronavirus, and it's not necessarily that public schools aren't doing as well. There is an area for public schools definitely to do well with the coronavirus outbreak and. I WANNA. Make sure quick. What exactly are you suggesting for? Public schools to be doing in the future? I feel like face to face. Classes are very important, so the teacher can interact in also with other students altogether make it as normal as possible in these times, so I feel like it should be necessary to be present and be on camera, so the teacher can monitor them or prevent any distractions, and this will give students a chance to make it feel as normal as possible as normal you can with online learning, and it gives them opportunities to participate or learn. Ben But what else do you have to say about? How public and private schools have responded? Yeah I'm so you brought up? The point of it's about the education value, not necessarily the money, but the thing is public. Schools can only focus on education at this point. They have to focus like I said on giving their kids three meals and access to support services which I think we can all agree. The health of the kids is more important than the education. I think we can all agree that. Generally private school families are bulkier and don't have to consider the lower income students so I think that's really where it comes in. Is that right? It's only at the money, but the public schools have to take care of so much more things than the private schools do. You're saying that they both do really care about education. Just that the public schools actually have more to deal with in terms of meals, you know making sure that everyone's equipped with electronic devices for as private schools already have a lot of those things already done. That correct. Yet the public schools just have so much for duties and. Duties that are more important than necessarily in. Such as like I said free meals or support services. Yeah I feel like the divide between private and public schools has always been there especially now with the pandemic. It's hurting it maybe just a bit more. I agree with you on that aspect, but the part that I do disagree on is how you said the pressure between private and public schools for their students fee the best they can. Right now going onto the next question, which is about ourselves, how can we make the most of distance learning as kids as we enter back into the next school year in August, whether schools partly return fully return or remained virtual in the fall distance learning will never be the same as face to face interaction while some students have lost motivation, others have taken advantage of the situation to learn new skills or strengthen existing. How can we make the most of distance learning as kids? Ben August one to you I. Guess so I think there's really two aspects of dot question. There is a hobby point of view. How can they do or activities? And then there's the education point of view, so how the heck hock make the most of the learning specifically learning aspect of and that's why I wanted to focus on. So to properly answer the question, we really have to distinguish what makes distance learning so different than regular school classes. And highlighted the two main factors which are the focus aspect and face to face interaction. So really always have to do to make the most of distance. Learning is basically to make in motorbike regular learning. So. What do you mean by that right? So I focus in many schools there is p and as we all know, physical education has been proven to keep. Kids more focused because the helps them release of the extra energy engineers. So first and foremost in order to help kids get the most out of distance learning. They need physical movement next the reason why we learn so much better in classrooms is because it's a distraction free environment. So as simple as it sounds, we just need to declutter and have cleared empty workspace. Now, the other aspect I mentioned was about face to face interaction. I wanted to bring up a study from the US Department of Education. In the two thousand eighteen study, the randy science students to either online or face to face class. And these are the same steady curriculum. The two measures weren't exam average for the entire course at improvement in post. To the pre-test. So the results of a study were quote, the face to face class performance typically significantly better than the online class in terms of the exam, average and improvement in post tests, instructor, questions and So now the question is Harry. Make this instituting more face to face. Well for starters, many schools use zoom or Google meets for classes. Most of the students are reluctant to show their faces which I believe only mentioned earlier. And that's in turn makes those to which other face awkward in doing so? And? Because of this domino effect, teachers have to teach a bunch of black screens, which I'm sure isn't very comfortable. If we ever want to make distance-learning wore impactful. Students just need to show their faces so all in all. Answer your question. We just seen since learning similar to regular learning by increasing focus doubles and increasing face to face interaction. Definitely what you're saying about increasing focus and limiting those distractions, getting outside is really really important. There's a lot of people who. You know as soon as they realized that Oh distance learning is gonna be the new norm. They started sleeping lay waking up super lay, and they didn't really have any motivation, so it's really important what you're saying about making sure you. Have you know a schedule limiting those distractions and making sure that you get as much as possible out of the education that you're being given whether that's not as good as it is face you know, so make the most of what you're getting. Older. You're more geared toward focusing on hobbies rather then making the most of those distance learning classes. Is that correct? With distance, learning comes a lot more free time, and with that free time we could do possibly anything beneficial towards us whether it be more exercise to make the lack of physical education that we miss out on or further, educate themselves. Obviously, this is not the perfect solution, but these are just some of the ways you can make the most of distance learning and the national. Association of Independent Schools or any is states that in order to be a distance it will require a better self control when it comes time, management and academic honesty. Yet, but we can't just trust the kids with this free time of course most kids when they're like. Oh, I don't have any school. I can just are playing video games like four night, which has been increasing as of late and you have kids watching Youtube all way till twelve am in the morning. So how can you make sure that the kids are actually going to focus on these extra hobbies rather than just do whatever they want. I completely see your point i. look for myself in. Where coming from, but video games are not the only rewarding activity. A kid can do their free time. Some kids could actually enjoy the outdoors or other beneficial activities that spark interest depending from person to person and video games, although having their benefits such as like improve hand, eye coordination, even with this after a while it will get boring and become less less filling in. Kids will turn to other alternatives. This is where the parents and teachers need to step in. Give kids ideas. Give them things to do to make sure that their day is not just spent in front of a screen, playing video games or watching movies or television. A lot of the time if kids are just given free time, there's GonNa Watch Youtube all day. Ben Got something to say. Yes. I actually had a question for Oma. So my question is. How can we encourage kids to do things like read books or take a course? Winter them for nine or minecraft is so much more enticing. Earlier? This does have a lot to do with parents and teachers as well. I think they need to step in and take part of situation, because as kids are still growing, they're still learning self control time management obviously, and it's important for teachers and parents to understand that and help them as much as they can buy maybe making schedules or plan out there day ahead of time so again. The not their whole day is spent in front of a screen or just doing activities that are not official. Bendy of something else dad. I'm really I. For the most part in this. Yeah definitely. It's really important to explore your passions during this time. I mean they're also definitely needs to be a time when parents need to step in and tell their kids no more you to know more games, it's time to focus on doing other activities in addition to the school, so other activities these include going outside exercising running just exploring your passions. If you like writing you WanNa right. If you like cooking sometimes when we have this extra time, it really allows us to explore passions rather than going into school, because sometimes at school there are things that just seem distant from us or not really related to what we're going to do in the future. So Oma you really saying that if our schools aren't providing that same kind of learning that we need or as much time, we really should be focusing on those hobbies and Ben. You're saying that if we're not getting that same sort of education, we should be trying to get more of the education. Basically, so correct me if I'm wrong, almost saying that we should spend usual time in school, doing other activities, and yes, I understand if you WANNA be. Olympic runner, the maybe go to tracking sprinting be beneficial, but while a kid is in school, the brain is still developing, and I understand like I said, if run on wants to be runner didn't might be good to run, but you still need to use some of the tying. That would have been spent in school to keep learning progress whether it's learning. Sarah Course reading a book. I'm not saying that we should just completely drop. School I'm saying that with school. Obviously after studying or junior, Simonsen everything, there will still be a lot more free time because we're not on campus. You're not in school. We're going to be at home and in order to fill up those gaps of time we could do things that are productive, such as courses or reading books, obviously with the help of teachers and parents encouragement along the way. So what you guys are saying is because run on campus. We can have more free time which can be used for furthering the education that we might have lost and also for exploring new hobbies. Is that correct? Yeah yes. So the fourth question that I have for you guys is Abou How colleges might differ from reopening primary and secondary schools. The California State University System, or the CAL state school system announced that most of their fall classes will be conducted online and many universities are planning for a virtual return. The CAL, state school system is one of the largest public school systems and the United States so their decision really sets a precedent for other colleges and universities in the United States. How will reopen in colleges differ from elementary junior, high and high school systems and give that to bend. So. We all know the brain requires social interaction. and social distancing severely limits interaction. The University of Rochester explains that the brain grows up from winter foreign to the age of twenty five with the earlier years, obviously being more important and the importance being downgraded as you. So because of this, even though social distancing still hot, some fact on undergraduate students, brains, younger, primary and secondary students will be affected significantly more. As such the face to face, aspect of learning will be much more essential so younger grades in college. And because of us, we really need to expedite the reopen process for primary and secondary in comparison to upper learning. Yeah a lot of colleges already have on line programs for master's or Ph. D programs, and they're more for online classes because they've been doing that in the past already. You agree with that. Yeah No, as you said. College attendees are already more equipped to function through online, studying in having all ready gone through primary and secondary school systems gives them that advantage to be more ready for remote learning, whereas primary and secondary school systems do struggle a bit more because they're not as ready or quipped for it. Yeah! Yeah definitely colleges and universities, their approach is going to be a lot different than primary and secondary schools. They might be more willing to do these online classes because they know there won't be much of a drop in information as say primary and secondary schools whose students really do need that face to face interaction. I mean I'm not saying that college and graduate programs don't need that interaction, but in my be less important. One thing I wanted to mention as well back to that other question that I asked. You guys is grading so I know in these last few months of school, a lot of schools have actually made grades optional or made a system where your grades can't go down. They can only go up and this made students a lot of motivation. They're basically saying like okay. If my great can't go down, I already have as why do I need to work? Is that something that should be enforced later on in school, or should that be changed? Give that to Oma. I know a lot of schools around me. HOW THE SYSTEM! My school personally did not have that. We had assignments where returning like normally accept it was a lot more relaxed, and it helped us because we weren't as stressed, so we would receive few assignments them on our own, or maybe in class in then we turn them in through our school systems, and our tests and quizzes also were a lot more relaxed or just didn't get them, and we still got points down if we didn't turn in something, or if we maybe got a few things wrong, which help us stay motivated in working hard in school, so we could keep our grades up. Ben What do you have to say about that? I think to really understand this question. We have to look at both sides of the argument so for the site of credit or no credit rates. Will they always talk about with to consider to lower income students and the with virtual learning? It's no longer a balanced playing field. Whereas during school, everyone is in the same desk with the same computer I home. I'm not I'm not sure many people have the same desk same computer, but if you look at the other point of view of having grades will isn't distance-learning like regular school. In regular school over knocking a grade so I. Should we do it in distance? Earning so I think that this is a pretty difficult question to answer. Yes, or no, but I just wanted to provide some insight for the audience. Top them decision. I agree with you that there's no like clear. Yes, or no answer. I was just saying for from personal experience. That's how my school stay motivated in working hard to keep her grades up. But it depends yet. One possible solution might be for the students that are equipped may be making grades actually vulnerable to change whereas students that might not have the same resources. Maybe the teachers can contact those families and see if there's a disadvantage, they don't have the same resources as kids in the same school do have those resources, and maybe they won't be subject to change. It'll be more of a credit or no credit system. So that is also very interesting. So last question I have for you guys is what can kids do right now in the summer? And what message do you guys want to leave them with? An I'll give that to Omar I. I just WanNa, say everyone should be staying as active as you can. Because we're obviously missing that out in our lives, so we have to stay active and also I. Think it's best to prepare ahead of time for the next school year because we don't know what's going to happen. We don't know how the Crow Virus Hell. Far Long. It will come, so we just need to be prepared for everything and maybe set up a plan or set of resources at should be available for our next year. So what I would say tons fraud, but you really have to use this chance as a really great opportunity I mean. When's the last time we've had this much time on our hands and I could bring up earlier. Maybe don't spend so much time watching Youtube benching up six. Try doing things that you'll remember a couple of years. I mean for night. It sounds great. You'll have some fun with some friends, but when you're an adult talking, your kids are going to be talking a lot about for night. Or what if you playing for night mid a scrapbook or made a log future something that will last so I think that in coronavirus now. Long-term and try doing things. Now that you'll, you will actually remember and that you'll be proud targets. Yeah one example that I was given by indulging in the past is that. Take fifty hours. You say you spend fifty hours playing video games playing minecraft playing for night. What are you really get out of that? Maybe you'll move onto the next rank, or you'll get you know digital currency that won't mean anything in the future just diskette that direct entertainment that you'll have right then and there and not be better prepared for the future. If you spend fifty hours cooking, look how much you can gain. You can provide for your family. You can be better equipped in your adult life hood, so yeah. I definitely agree with the is making sure that we expanded our hobbies and make good use of our time. Than just playing video games or watching you, too, so thank you guys so much for coming on and hope you guys have a good and productive summer. Thank you for having me. Thanks for having me too and I. Wish you the same as. Thanks guys. What do you guys think of the debate? Ben Beliefs. It is best to wait for vaccine before returning to school because he doesn't want to take any chances with public health, while OMA is prioritizing returning as soon as possible with strict medical procedures in place and a hybrid model of learning. While they both agree that kids should make use of the extra time during distance learning, Ben thanks, time should be geared toward supplemental courses or materials while the leaves. The time is best spent on strengthening hobbies. Let me know if you is like this type of debate versus a more structured. And thanks for listening. and. Thanks so much to the debaters almost Sukhal and Benjamin want. To the founder of this podcast, also Benjamin long and to the audio editor for this episode Tullia Rahman. The views expressed in this episode. Do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the firefly's podcast. Thanks for listening and I. You have a good and productive week.

Again, that's one hundred twenty five dollars off of your order by going to helixsleep dot com slash scares. I'll even put a link to it in the description of this episode. This week. We're going to talk about aromatherapy, phone, addiction and guilty pleasures. Admittedly. I was doing some Christmas shopping for my girlfriend. I was on goop, you know, that hoity toity Gwyneth Paltrow website. That's been getting in trouble for false medical claims. So I was kind of doing a little more window shopping than actual Christmas shopping. But that's beside the point either way, I saw this thing. I wasn't quite sure what it was it almost looks like something you'd see sitting on some stone is counter, but I couldn't imagine goop selling that sort of thing. Either tall white with what appeared to be a spout of the top. And a cord that ran out of the bottom with some intrigue. I clicked it. The va trivial stone diffuser for one hundred nineteen dollars. The words stone in diffuser in it. It didn't really help my case against it. Not being something that may not be legal in ten states. What I soon learned was that it was actually for aromatherapy. Which again, I wasn't quite sure what it is. Sure. I'd heard of it before. But I didn't know. No, no. You know, apparently what this thing does is diffuse essential oils throughout your home to smell could be grapefruit eucalyptus lavender the list really goes on. But still I had no idea what essential oils were did. You put them in smoothies. Do you rub them on your skin? Do you drip them onto your tongue name essential oils? I couldn't stop thinking that just sounded like some overly expensive air freshener. So I dug deeper I wanted to know at its root what a Roma therapy actually did for someone after all I'm not opposed to incorporating into my Sunday, rituals and panic room to be completely Frank. It's kinda surprising. I haven't already done so considering my affinity for Senate candles what I found was this, aromatherapy uses plant materials and air Matic plant oils, including essential oils and other aroma compounds for improving, your psychological and physical well-being now bear with me because this is about to sign the little granola. The deep down. It's all about the essential oils. I just talked about pretty much. They're made from flowers herbs and tree parts like bark root, peels and pedals. It's what makes those things smell the way that they smell their essence in when the essence is extracted. It becomes the you guessed it, he sensual oils that using these things. So here's how it works. The smells incense activate the smell receptors in your nose, which then send messages to your brain and nervous system this plays into your emotions. Which is why people use them in the first place to feel good. What do they actually do though? Like besides just smell. There said to help ease stress, anxiety and depression. Heightened relaxation, improve sleep ease symptoms of dementia and even fight bacteria. The entire idea is that it's kind of like burning incense, but maybe a little less intense and not as much of a fire hazard. So no while you don't become relaxed. Because you smoked anything out of it. You may just become relaxed because the triggers soften your brain. While you sit and watch the most recent episode of the great British baking show on Netflix. And hey, I'll take that. Even if it does cost one hundred nineteen dollars on goop. Four hours and forty eight minutes. That's the average amount of time. I spent on my phone per day last week, four hours and forty eight minutes, four hours and forty eight minutes of scrolling Instagram checking emails and trying to figure out what song play four hours and forty eight minutes of reading tweets taking photos and sending text messages, four hours and forty eight minutes of actions that I have no actual memory of twenty percent of an entire day spent staring into a screen rather than doing literally anything else. And the fact of the matter is, yes, I'd love to use the quote, but I was working excuse to avoid feeling as Oma did to my phone, but plain simple, I wasn't working. Most people myself included wouldn't want to actually admit that they're dictated their phone. I mean, I think that's kind of one of the Staples of addiction the whole I could quit smoking cigarettes. Whenever I want thing that people say when they go from being a soc. Smoker to a regular smoker. And maybe they genuinely believe that that they could actually quit whenever they wanted. But a lot of the time. It's just not that simple. When I saw that four hours and forty eight minutes, I didn't necessarily want to think it was true. It just seemed like a lot. But I guess it is a lot. My hopes were that Apple's new screen time tracking on IRS would be faulty. And maybe it track time when I wasn't actually on my phone. Unfortunately, it became pretty evident that I was when I looked at the break down. I saw numbers that surprised me even more not only was I picking up my phone one hundred fifteen times per day, but I was receiving about one hundred twenty-five notifications a day. That's just one hundred twenty five prompts for me to look down reach over or pull my phone out of my pocket to unintentionally distract myself. Am I did my phone maybe phone addiction at its root is a compulsive overuse or strong emotional attachment to your phone? It's the constant and obsessive checking of it. Whether you're lying in your couch, watching friends, or if you're driving at seventy six miles an hour down the freeway. Whether it's every few seconds every few minutes, or you're just constantly holding it it's a category that most of us fall into the other night. I noticed it more than ever. There. We were sitting in our living room. The TV was playing our dog was somewhere between chewing a bone and sleeping on her bed. And we sat there on our phones while up the show that I frankly can't remember played in the background. I wasn't even sure how many episodes we had gone through. I was so fixated on what was in my hand rather than what was on screen in front of me, or what was even more concerning than anything. I didn't know what the person next to me was doing after all we just spent the entire day apart working are separate jobs. Shouldn't we be cooking dinner decompressing from the day and enjoying a glass of wine together rather than staring deeply into these screens? For all. I know we are looking at and liking the same posts and engagement photo here. They in photo there and Instagram contest where we had to tag three other people. But instead we were isolated from one another loss in our own separate worlds rather than the world that we were sitting in right now phone addiction isn't yet a psychological and medical disorder. Instead, it's just something. We joke about our deflect onto others who are looking at their phone. The moment that you aren't looking on your phone, but some signs that you are here few you check the time. And then you immediately forget what time it is your phone may act as carry blanket when you're out in public are riding the elevator of your apartment. Your phone is always on you like always you always have to have a charger on you or you fear that your phone will die you keep checking for notifications. Even when you haven't posted anything, you feel phantom vibrations in your pocket, and there are million more that. Are so relatable that they'll all make you wanna put your phone down and move to a remote cabin in Montana. But there are some strides that you can take you can leave it behind when you go run errands. You can go for walks without it, you can put it in your glovebox when you're driving or you can just leave in a different room when you're making dinner or watching a movie just anything to make it more difficult to find when your brain has about of boredom. I know you're likely listening to this very episode on a phone, but I got a notification the other day from a meditation app head space that simply asked what if you turned off all your notifications kind of contradictory. Yes. But I simply put my phone on do not disturb for the rest of the day. We'll make an effort to avoid things. I didn't really need to see. Don't feel shamed. By your iphone Sunday, breakdowns of your screen time. Just try to look at how much you're on it and be better the week going forward. Even if it means not posting an Instagram story from that new restaurant you've been dying to try you'll live. This is an admission of guilt. It all started a few weeks ago from the recommendation of a friend, well, less of a recommendation and more of a have you seen the show? It's completely brainless. But I'm addicted and sometimes that's what you need a mindless show that you can zone out to I'll making dinner doing some work or simply trying to fall asleep. But what I didn't realize when I queued this one up on Hulu is that it would hijack the next three weeks my life. It's called younger, and it starring Hilary Duff and a bunch of other people that you haven't heard of it's mindless, it's terribly written in its recently, become one of my guilty pleasure. Tv shows in the pilot episode. You learned that the main character is divorced say mother who wants to get into the publishing industry, but because of her age, and the gap and work experience from raising a family, she fears her chances at landing something are tanking. So what does she do? She lies about her age. Then it pretty much spirals from there. See I think most television shows can fall into a specific category. You have your prestige television any HBO drama, the crown madman. You know, the ones that make you feel like you're must reading a book sometimes, and then you have your comedies the shows that actually make you laugh like veep modern family the office friends. Frazier Seinfeld shows that are legitimately funny. And then on the other end, you have your guilty pleasures, which younger obviously falls into the shows. You don't want to admit you watch. But still the shows that you gush about over group dinners when you realize that someone else had the same embarrassing taste for television deep down. These are kind of my favorite you can't wear them like a badge of honor in live tweet, Amazon fold you have to hold them close to you and pick your spots. Just in case anybody else knows what you're talking about. Of course, you'll get made fun of when you admit that you've dedicated hours of your life to it to someone who is an in the no, but that's your. Dirty little secret deep down. We all need something that we can indulge in with minimum investment something we can fall asleep to after a long day and not feel badly about something that transports your brain into a different world. No matter how cheesy that world may be sometimes that makes everything else in your life seemed just a little more legitimate by no means my suggesting that you indulge in the five seasons of younger that have taken over my nights. Don't be afraid to let your guilty pleasure flag. Fly little bit. It'll feel good just be careful trying to figure out where you left off when you fall asleep during the night priors episode. It may drive you absolutely insane. This week's episode is also brought to you by upstart. Money is something we all stress about in fact, it may be what weighs on you.

Facebook Ad Tips For Coaches (Top Asked Questions)

"If you can dream it you can do. Enzo Ferrari welcome back coach in today's episode. I'm talking about the facebook ads or deeper than that really paid traffic their place in your business. When is it too early one? Is it too late. What what to avoid what to do how to avoid making a lot of the mistakes that I made? When I started I burned thousands? Tens of thousands of dollars learning the whole Ad Platform learning how to run pay traffic amid a lot of mistakes. And I'm hoping that I can help you avoid some of them now. This episode will be information. Heavy some of these podcast. Kosovans are very action. Heavy action based they're usually a little bit shorter. And here's some actions to take some of these episodes or a little bit more information heavy and information coverage of situation so take some notes anything that's not directly applicable right. Now you can put it aside side in anything that's directly applicable. I want you to take the note and then put an order of importance and then take action on the first thing when I mentioned facebook ads to a coach by the way. If you find this episode helpful in any way if you get value out of anything that I do all I ask is giving a thumbs up give it like and give it a share share it with a few coaches. My reach is limited on my pay platforms. A lot of the stuff we do is is. We have a limited number of coaches. We can work with per month breath for me to reach more coaches for me to help more experts for me to create more transformations in the world. I spent a lot of time creating quality content and in hopes that had just reached as many coaches as it can actually changes their businesses. So if you're one of those coaches and you're listening and you've been listening listening in consuming it and getting value. The only thing I ask is just give it a share spread the message and if you truly love it was a review on itunes. Let me know what what you think I do. Read each and every one and it does help me steer the ship so to say trying to figure out. What is it that you want in? What should I create that being said? I appreciate and I think you ahead of time for that facebook ads so when I say facebook. That's the first thing that I usually get is a blank stare war. I tried it. It didn't work. I wasted money. I did too when I first started so I get it. I get the fear and the hesitation of getting back into pay traffic because it can it. Can if you failed in the past obviously you kind of like a negative feedback loop around and you can doubt it when you doubted that you don't go all in and even if you do you're owning a you never fully believe it and so you never play big and you never really do what it takes to make it work so I wanNA wipe the slate slate clean. If you've RAN FACEBOOK ADS in they've have it worked for you. Let's wipe the slate clean and start from square one. I invite you to not telling you what to do. Joined by you to do it or if you've never facebook as in this episode will be really helpful for you. The second thing the second question I want to answer is when is it. When is the right time members it is is can be too early? My answer to that is yes. You can run facebook ads too early as if you haven't done the fundamental work. I'm talking like the amateurs stuff understanding who you're who you're going after the language that they use the pain points or having the kind of program that could solve their problems if you're not ready to actually get on calls and talk with clients and yes. We need to build up the structure this system system. It's what we do in the coaches university. Its main focus. We built we get the fundamentals down then we build the systems and then we run pay traffic. It's usually in month due to a coaching business. That we start running patriotic but there has been many things that come before pay traffic including the internal work. If you haven't done that I invite you to do that. I that being said even when a heavy brand new coach that I'm working working with in there interested in running pay traffic. I will run patriotic and I'll explain that in a second so it's it's never really too early. Join pay traffic just the strategy that you do a shifts. We won't be running traffic into some kind of made it into an email list and then trying to convert from there with retargeting ad to a sales pitch. We won't be doing that. We'd be doing an awareness video awareness campaign. How do we get more awareness to your stuff and then re target the majority so it's just a subtle shift in strategy but you can do it right off the back? Some coaches will when my first sale reinvest in facebook ads. They generally numbered. So if you feel like you're ready for so you want experiment with it. You keep listening and if you're if it's way too early you just got certified and you have no idea what you're doing it or how you doing it then. Of course facebook. ADS is a month month or two away for you and let's get the fundamentals down. Check out our our our evergreen course momentum if you're just starting momentum could be really good place to start start an after successfully completing momentum you get full credit into any one of our live coaching programs. Or if you just want to jump into it at coaches adversity could be really good. Good fit for absolutely anyone we crank out. Some pretty bad as coaches in the coaches university. Check it out. I invite you to look around here somewhere that being said once you have the fundamentals figured out and maybe you're starting to build some of your systems as facebook. ADS can really kick in. The next question is headway. Even start are what do I do with facebook facebook ads in the one thing. I want you to understand facebook ads although it's an ad quote unquote platform Ad Platform. It's not a bulletin mm-hmm. It's not abrasive. It's not meant to take away from the user experience. I want you to understand that the ads that what do that that take away from the user experience on facebook usually have very wrote low relevant score. They don't get much engagement. facebook pushes it away and doesn't show show it to. As many people. Your click through rates link clicks. All be down because of the amount of people that see it will be down and you'll still be spending has much because facebook doesn't WanNa ruin the experience of the user so your facebook. ADS have to sort of blend in like a social media post I but be very targeted towards a specific group of people to get their attention and then turned that attention into click where you're landing page or wherever you're sending ending them will do the job of conversions. But you don't necessarily want to sell on the facebook platform unless it's a retargeting ad to a very hot audience with like last minute offer offer. You don't open cart ends day or two. That's where you can start doing that. But for the most part most of your time and most of your budget on facebook ads will be spent on on a very non abrasive adverts and I I don't like calling an ad because the first thing we think is oh we need to sell something something with a nice billboard ad and that's not what I mean. This isn't a TV commercial. Is Not a Youtube Ed. You know that's pretty intrusive. It's it must blend in with the platform. So what did you understand is on a facebook ad when you're creating this facebook Ed. I've got a few youtube videos on the actual ad platform. That stuff's easy to figure out. You can find that but when you're actually creating the facebook ads you really only have a few elements a few a few the variables that you need to create. You obviously have your targeting who are you first of all you have campaign. What kind of ad is this? What kind of what's the objective? Active of the AD will call it that you have the objective of the that's the campaign level. Then you've got the targeting in you've got placements your Age you've got the interest. Based targeting. Maybe you're following some pages some people some influence or targeting all that stuff. Then you're working through to the actual chill budget what are you going to spend etcetera etcetera once that is done. Then you've got your actual criminal. You've got the image you've got your headline and you've got the copy and you of course can choose your call to action. That's pretty much. It's I mean I could get into the budget optimization I could get it into a whole bunch of little things like that but just on surface level. That's what you have. What do you want the engineer that John? Your campaign level was objective. Is it a conversion are you converting people in your email list. This is an awareness and a video of you. Add you choose that I for most of our clients. It's a conversion add. We're running traffic street to lead magnet and we're trying to get you know cost per lead down as as low as possible maintaining a high quality of lead. We grow an email list. You can grow any Melissa. A few hundred in a very short period of time doing that right then we move into the actual targeting. Who Do we talk? If you're just starting a lot of your targeting is going to be interest based or is it going to be pages of people title. Who Do they follow? What are they interested in? And of course you can choose your age. We could choose your location. USA CANDID THE ICE. I have my clients separate that USA as separate candidates separate great burden Australia UK. All that is separate we separate all of that and the reason is i. Don't WanNa get into too many of the reasons because we could make this episode twenty hours long sharing some of the most sought after stuff when it comes to facebook ads. We separate because we don't want you'll notice this very quickly that you would say the most expensive and you'll find that like Australia the UK sometimes at least it's expensive same ad saint people. And if you blend the multi other sometimes you're taking away from one adds performance and it's kind of leveling out you'll get a lot better results separating separating countries and if you get enough ads even separating age-groups twenty to thirty thirty to forty forty to fifty charter find the winning winners trying to find what is performing forming the best. We can double down on that once. You're done that. And you set your budget you move into the actual ad level and the ad levels really creative now the way. Is The box method waving my hands. Like crazy in and have to imagine a A kind of a square with four squares within rates. You've got four squares you're going to rotate your ads. There's really only four things that we're get to keep rotating out you've got your targeting in one box we can write targeting in one box. You got your image in another box. You got your headline in another box wchs. Then you've got your copy in another box. Unit coupled with four of each four targeting options four different images just for your head four different headlines and of course four different pieces of copy so body copy four different versions of it now. Now how you test. What is actually working? Is Our go test. Four different audiences same image same headline same copy and go you tested for week. You see which audience is performing the best. Then you grab that audience you bring it to the top of the box and now you'll test four different images so that winning audience. It's you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA use that winning audience. You can use the same copy the same headline but you're going to rotate four images. You do that for a week. Four days depending what you Budgets at maybe a day of your budget is massive. You can get thousands of people in it. Then you're GONNA say Great. This audience in this image seems to be working the best best. Let's set those as winners. And now you use the same audience the same image but you'll rotate your CDs. You call the actions. Let's try Ford. Everyone's find the winner. Great done and you get a try that same image the same headline in the same targeting aided says forty four pieces of copy. You're going to find the winner. Then you're gonNA move that into the winning campaign great. It's the winning ad and they're going to do it all over it great now. I'm GONNA use the winning image and the winning copy. The winning headline Emma's four new audience. And see if I can keep making my head better. I'm always going behind the screen with clients on my facebook AD campaigns. And and you'll be the first to see. Sometimes I read an ad and it's like twenty. Two dollars per lead is not performing that well but after a week of testing of tweaking modifying. It's down to two dollars. Most coaches were trying to run ADS. Stop because they see twenty two dollars elite or no results in K.. This work whereas the ones who are winning the AD Games at great tweak tweak tweak it test and tweak test tweaked test gather results tweak tried again you can work your way down to some pretty attractive the numbers and you'll quickly find that that two times four times five times ten times. Roi On facebook can become a reality. Even if you're tripling your answer if if you know that you're spending one hundred but you make three hundred done. I think anyone would be happy with that. We want to get better and it really just comes out of being patient and being okay to test in tweak. Now one final thing I want to mention is do video ads. I'm just answering questions that always get asked on facebook ad stuff here duty leads the reason tenfold but I'll share so the biggest reasons is a videos connect. We all know that you can see. He's someone is you can see the lips move. You can see their energy and you can really connect with someone and build a relationship in a much shorter period of time number. Two facebook prefers I deal. So it'll push it out to more people you'll get cheaper results with the actual video ad number three the re targeting retargeting argued on a regular. Ed The retargeting video is a pretty cool feature because if you send like we have some videos that have fifty thousand or eighty thousand views some cements and at the end of the month. I can go. You know what anyone. Who's what seventy five percent more of this video? Let's put them on a specialist facebook Creek List for you and let's re target them. Anyone who wants seventy five percent or more of a five minute video has gotten to know me pretty well at least three and a half or almost four minutes minutes of video ends. They probably know me a message. They've seen me there's awareness there's probably been a relationship. There's maybe a little bit Mike Lot of no not much trust at that point but maybe a little bit into put something that moves than down the quote unquote unquote funnel. That moves down. The system that moves through the pipeline is the options. facebook gives you a really powerful for that. So my answer is always video video it was not your forte practice. It get better at it when I have a client. I say this often times. I haven't thirty videos so they send a video once or we're twenty a day doesn't have to be perfect is under four minutes. It's video just with the iphone working on the communicating idea. After thirty videos my clients are usually pros on video. Or they're much more powerful on video. If your video stink yes you'll have a hard time getting results. But it's a skill set out highly recommend learning because it can really help you both lamented your coaching business. And learning how to communicate in real life or at least on video is a averis powerful skill to develop then the final thing I wrote in the final kind of question that gets asked. How do I know what interface books on on of? How do I know if it's working? You've gotTa have data points setup. You've got to have like a you know in stocks stop-loss like what's the results Zolt. After what do you want out of this Ad. What's the lifetime value of your client? How much are you willing to spend to acquire light and the answer? You know if your clients are were five thousand dollars. You're willing to spend a thousand dollars to get a client. You could start scaling and just know that if you spent a thousand dollars and you have got a client yet. It's okay you buying data but that's when you know. Kate what do I need to test. And tweak. Where's your threshold for that? There's also data on the back end that I want you researching I want you still. You have written about a few times of no have some videos around it so I won't get into it but just it's very data heavy now. I hope about doing a disservice by making facebook. Ads seem extremely complex. Because they're not. We run all facebook ads in house end and and we do out with waylon agency takeover. The results they were getting us. Words was worse than what we do. Now like it worse so we took it back and I realized I know more about facebook ads and then a lot of people and I'm not talking about e commerce. Talk about complex things. I'm really really simple. Conversion Aunts awareness awareness ads and retargeting against only three things. You really need to know. You've awareness ads pushing perfect people into a video and say bringing awareness to your to what it is you do to who you are to what you stand for to why you do what you do. Then you've got a lead generation campaign driving people into a landing page into a quote unquote squeeze page. You've heard it all. Before and moving people in journalists we could spill the relationship. Then you've got your re targeting Ed's what you do build audiences you re targeted email video viewers your instagram engagement facebook page engagement. And you re target them with a hey. Would you like to work with me type of idea. You know you've been watching stuff was up. Would you like to work with me. That's basically it right there. That's all you really need to understand and then it just comes down to tweaking the actual ad itself and in most cases the audience to finding that winning combination. Then you could start with you know five to ten dollars to start nice and slow pick away at it keep tweaking it every day. Check the data seed as a game. See a fun game because once you crack that code once you crack that code like the clients who crack that code. We helped them crack that code for their industry are now in a position to actually have predictability in coaching coaching business. And not hoping for a client through the content they create that pretty much. Nobody watches anyways. Because it's so busy on social media. I hope this helps if you're a little bit confused or like wow realistically episodes sometimes realistically once or twice will help it drive. You drive it home. I want you to become a pretty. He's savvy marketer and the stuff is not complex. It's not hard it can take twenty minutes a day and you can keep your heads in good shape and keep them growing keep them scaling scaling and keep them bringing in consistent clients for your coaching business. If you need help with it most coaches were like I need help with facebook ads. We're like great but before we do. Let's check your systems. Let's make sure that's dialed in one thousand nine times out of one hundred. Their systems are dialed in facebook. Ads Won't save them simply won't so we would dilated systems. Make sure your copies on point. Make sure your landing pages lead made it through sales pages make sure your booking calendars make sure everything is positioned to make you the the only choice for someone and then we opened the floodgates of pay traffic and we obviously leverage free traffic as well the to work very well hand in hand it's a whole ecosystem to building a system a business. That's if it was easy. Everyone would have a multimillion dollar coaching business. But it's not there's some strategy there's some step-by-step there's some domino building. The dominoes are getting knocked. Over at the F- in the right order at the right time then you will fail to build a coaching business.

Talking Practice: Reinier de Graaf

"From Harvard University's Graduate School Design. This is talking practice. A series asking asking renowned designers to provide an inside glimpse into what they do why and how they do it exposing the ways in which their design imagination is articulated through practice. I'm grace law professor architecture and chair of the practice platform. Thank you for listening. Joining me. Today is Dutch architect. Renzo de graff. Architectural theorist urban EST and Rider Rainier is omb as longest serving non founding partner and he's as lead projects in Europe Russia and the Middle East. He is also a CO founder of Omai's think-tank am. Oh and is the author of the book four walls and a roof. The complex is nature of a simple profession named best books of two thousand seventeen by both the financial times and the Guardian Rainier is teaching a studio at the ged this semester entitled Old Phantom Urbanism. Welcome Rainier thank you so I thought that we would start by just talking a little bit about yourself about when and why you joined find Omay and what did you do before that. I'd like to give our audience. Just some sense of you okay. Well that is so long ago that I struggle to remember. I think it's twenty two years ago in the mid nineties. I joined just basically looking for a job. I was unemployed. I think at the time I worked for. Numerous architects context practices before the work had always interested me. I thought Ram was very inspiring lecturer and so I applied did an interview. Go temporary contract Fordad stay for about two and a half years and moved on. That became a bit longer. So how would you say that your your role has shifted over this period of time or maybe how has the practice shifted Whether those are two different things I think my own role will gradually shifted away from my professional training and sensitive started as an architect working on projects and the subjects that I dealt with gold first Christoffel on an ever larger scale scale. which at a certain moment I think even defied the word urban est until they became so general enroll that they came statements about the world at large for which apparently the client's willing to pay us? And that I've done very happily happily ever since I guess my own evolution and the practice is one of progressive abstraction in which the relativity of my own profession. Russian has become also very very apparent. Oh my only other hand I think is pretty much a bigger version of what it always was. That's interesting and when you say that can you describe grab a little bit the relationship between Ammo and Omay like more specifically because I think a lot of people wonder like how does that work what is method. And how do these things interrelate Omai Oma is an architecture practice and am Oh is the vehicle in which we deal with all the questions that we get asked. That don't necessarily Charlie have to lead to a building. It's quite funny how it started because we did competitions for new building typologies and we always did a lot of research even for are those even when people hadn't asked us when we were asked to do a library. We went to the bottom of what a library meant. In the age of the virtual for instance and then did a lot of unsolicited solicited research mainly to satisfy our own curiosity and mainly to avoid giving a superficial answer to maybe a more complex question. The often we presented that type of work the more we discovered a kind of authentic appetite on behalf of clients in that type of research so that at a certain moment we decided you know we may as well pack it as a separate activity and packaged projects. And those are the type of projects. A Mo- does it's the rediscovery of architecture picture as a purely conceptual vehicle this conceptual vehicle this abstract in a sense it pulls away in allows you to have. Let's say even in a more planetary which I think is actually not only refreshing. But it's very interesting and so I'm just curious if you can be more specific on how it works and how it reinforces the work of the building portion of the Bible. Sometimes it does sometimes. It doesn't and you also have to be very careful there because a lot of people mistake it for a research vehicle that is meant to make do better buildings. That's only very partially the case. I mean I think the annoying thing about being an architect and about architects in general is that whenever somebody comes to them with a problem they invariably these tend to say the answer to your problem is building it is of course not a big mystery. Why why they would say that? Because it reinforces road necessity in a way. Of course that is there. Enters a certain amount of subjectivity. In answering their enters is an ulterior motive in the answer to any questions and we also wanted a domain of our office to be liberated from that to be dedicated to purely intellectual pursuits and to simply live very healthily. With the fact that you know the answer to some problems or not buildings and to be able to be candidate about that declined and never clients nevertheless retained those clients so it also means that. Am Oda certain projects which one would never traditionally expects Architects to do. How can it be self sustaining in terms of the if your committee US Commission to people pay for it and you don't go overboard with your resources yes unsure? It can be profitable interesting but I mean that's of course doubly edged because it tends to be the part of our work that we ourselves Dell's are very passionate about that. We very interested in so we wanted to be profitable. We have to control ourselves most of all but I mean there is an interest and there is an authentic desire desire from the market to do that. Kind of work for me is interesting that we as a creative organization get asked a lot of strategic questions and I think it's an interesting product of our time that ultimately certain strategic questions end up on the desk of architects or end up on the desk of creative organizations commissions and I kind of wonder what that means. Not to digress too much in the lecture that you delivered last night you showed a graphic of the different kinds of methods of political division in the world but I also think that it must have something to do with architects ability to translate a lot of relevant interesting material into strategy which is also quite white digestible and quite easily understood maybe by virtue of its communicative power which I think that is also something. That's as a hallmark or a trait of ammo. Maybe you could talk a little bit about about that. Yeah I'm not sure whether it's our communicative power. Because I mean I think the communicative power for instance of journalists and writers and even marketing. The agency's is a little bigger than ours. I think what we do is that we talk about issues. When we ourselves are caught up in those issues as an architect you are rarely rarely independent? You are often the strange position that you have to be critical of the hand that feeds you. So we don't have the liberty to take ferry instantaneously moral stances on a lot of things and says we can't do that. You go in you get your hands dirty so a lot of the advice we give is an advice nice with dirty hands and that makes that advice probably all the more applicable then a kind of principal advise that either embraces or condemns things and. I think the architect is part of a curious web and I've written this in my book. Olf Clients Politicians architects and other people in which it is perpetually elite unclear who calls the shots right right and I think that is particularly the value that in a way you accumulate knowledge from experience. And you don't accumulate knowledge from knowledge so the knowledge is very very first hand and we work of course in. There's not a part of the world that we categorically dismissed as we work in all the three political categories that I showed lost nine and we also realize how different they are but interestingly we also realize how similar similar they are that there is a certain amount of inefficiency counter productivity imbedded both in democratic and annul democratic systems right it just presents itself in a different way at a different moment in time right. But it's all there right so if I turn my attention a little to the practice of Omay as many firms expand span. It is often the case that the quality of the work is inversely proportional to the size of the firm. And so I'm just kind of curious. Now how has the structure structure of Omay and now is it nine partners. Can you share with us like specific methods of the practice and is this a concern not really because I mean I think there is one. The fundamental difference between what people think an architect practice is and what we are. I mean we are in a way and I don't like the word but it the better one a very bottom up driven organization in the sense that we don't have a signature style. There is no master on the top floor. That makes it kind of esoteric satiric sketch which then trickles the to the underlings to elaborate in a building that looks like the sketch the leadership in our office kind of harvests. We riposte certain problems than irrespective of hierarchy people. Go at that problem. A certain amount of production and sues and we select interesting being directions which are essentially generated by the floor which means that was always even when we were small always very hybrid authorship of our products it's which also means that was not a single style to the element of surprise is often very interesting. Ingredient of the work diversity was an ingredient the word which means that if you are like that then you can expand fairly easily if you have a coherent brand than infinite expansion is always invariably at at the expense of the brand. But I don't think we necessarily have a brand. We have a particular way of thinking. I wouldn't even go as far as that. We have an ethos to think Anna in a kind of culture in the obligation where there is an ethos of exploring every possible intellectual alley and as long as that ethos is observed. The products are almost knows natural byproducts of that ethos and that is a far more expandable viper foregin isolation than the organization based on a signature style a a originated from a book also very interesting architecture practice that originated from a book. And I've always felt extremely comfortable with that. I mean delirious. New York is in my book. I think was fourteen years old when it was published. But I've always been able to identify with it enough enough without feeling that I had to sacrifice my own thinking my own personality my own take on things in order to do that and I think once you become part of an office with a set architectural style. That's a whole different matter right right so last night. You described this setup as kind of ecology of minorities partly because the office right now is comprised of individuals from just under fifty nations and that there is no sort of odd Priori Agenda With which you might tackle a particular kind of problem so it was almost as if you described like the perception from the outside. Is that Omay tomase like this Shiny Ferrari but that when you open the hood you see all these little monkeys inside running really fast to make the engine go and I'm wondering if you can let us a look under the hood. People have said that to me before I mean also when I wrote the book I mean. Is your candor. Really doing in your firm any favors because I mean you know the image of a Shiny Ferrari bad is quite good and something to be said for keeping the hood close and happily live with that perception but I think that is also told us the perception is also about the Ferrari with the open hood and the rapids jumping inside so. I don't think I've opened up on the books by writing the book or saying that even last night I think. To some extent candor is the best possible advertisement advertisement for anything and the most enduring form of advertising for anything and it's something also that spreads a message to other people or to a future generations. That might work in our office that this is something that doesn't have a fixed identity. It's an identity you can become part of and with you becoming part of that the identity that identity will change right and I think that is the essential message. What is the working method? Let's say for example. There is a new project on the boards awards how many people are assigned to do ask the archetypal question and then everyone goes out. Is there like a mini competition within the described this methodologically. Well a question comes was in. I mean the biggest thing of course is more questions. Come into the office than you're able to answer or more projects come into the office able to do so. We are still in a very fortunate position that in a way the whole thing starts there. I mean what do you accept. What do you reject and even there? There isn't any coherent method. I mean there isn't a set list of criteria that which makes things either full in or outside the door. There is a very fluid set of assessment. which is a mix of economic creative intellectual kind of considerations but ultimately everyone is kind of a judgment call and I think in that judgment call is already embedded a latent element of interest? I think that's what also always drives it. And you accept a project going to do it. And then you articulate why you accept it and why you were interested in it and that is almost the first brief that then transpires to a team and you form the teams within the office often based on that interest often composed of people who share that interest. That's where it starts and then people go at it for different reasons. and then a fairly fluid creative process starts with it's possible allies. You explore based on that interest and there is a very interactive back and forth always in groups with discussions y. I mean it's a little bit like the bubble. I showed the kind of people with collective brain with a lot of ideas and from that kind of semi rationally semi intuitively fleet emerges a direction on the basis of a shared preference. This is not a vote either on the basis of almost very confusionist or confusion kind of principles which you explore and then certain things at taken a further and sometimes in the face of clients. I mean to avoid architecture competitions in general we offer clients since that always invariably creates numerous options for every project and sometimes we select one and decide to present it in the case of an international competition. That's what you generally do but also when we have a direct commission we then tend to present multiple options to a client so there is a kind of many competition shen within our own nope between members but within our own brain which then even in a dialogue with a client one is ultimately picked. And I think that's a very important moment because then a client doesn't become your Bolshie in a way becomes a partner in crime the hybrid nature of architectural authorship type which is always in the profession been semi denied. I mean there is enormous tendency to equate buildings as the product of individual very blessed geniuses and even in those cases they're not and we have simply explored that truth and made that underlying truth about which each a large part of the world was in. Denial we've might that truth kind of into an open and obvious method manifest method. I think what our office has done is it has has made explicit what everybody implicitly already knew namely that architecture by definition has a hybrid authorship. And you can choose to to you know you can choose to celebrate it or you can choose to hide it. And we've chosen to celebrate it right and I think what's also very interesting about that. It kind of perspective is that it seems to recognize the kind of intuitive intelligence or other intelligences that inform that's an even a value of inexperience that's right and neither one of the things I discovered. I remember this very clearly from the first years that I worked at amazed that strangely the hierarchy as much as it existed that the hierarchy was almost inversely proportional to the level of experience people in the office and that was very nice. Because I mean practices that I'd worked before it was always well. We've done this for so long. We know this is the way things to be done. In the way we've always done it that Cetera and then there's a very natural ritual thing that you know design. Work was left to the intern. Because they were simply no good for anything else which also said something about the hierarchical position of design work in those offices and this aggressively turn that around where in a way not knowing became a qualification. And that of course to me as a relatively young guy guy entering the office that offers huge perspectives. Right right and I think probably it is really at the heart of why the work continues to this day to have a certain kind of freshness freshness so so. I think that that when you enter. You don't have to wait until it's your turn to make a valuable contribution. I mean it invites you to aggressively jump jump. The Queue which I think is healthy right. That's very interested in a civilized western European country. That is quite some so I'd like to turn attention to to your book which actually has generated a lot of interesting conversation. I think and to begin. I was just curious. How did you decide on these chapters and you know more critically quickly I'm curious? How long has this book been brewing for you and you know? Why did you write it? I had nothing to do with the decision to write it. It happened more or less by accident. I always wrote a lot. I mean I wrote a lot of project explanations and stuff for the office always in various publications at a certain moment I felt the need to start writing essays and articles as long as Leone requests of magazines Internet journals Etcetera Etcetera. So did that for a while and then I wrote I think one article in particular about Tomas Bakti and and what I think. The relevance of his economic theory is for architecture which goal published and then apparently it was read by the editor of Pickety of Harvard. University press then. They wrote me an email very interesting essay. Would you be interested in expanding the essay into a book and I said no because Amina have a daytime job. I have no time pretty much. Everything I know is in that essay. Thank you very much and some guy in our PR department was copied and on the email in Ethiopia. uh-huh so behind my back. He didn't say yes. He started notes. We're not quite that une hierarchy but uh-huh becky started to send other essays and links to the publisher and then the publisher came back with the idea of a concept album links of your other writings. Yeah I so. And then the publisher Rep more more and more as A. Hey this is interesting. You could write a book about architecture. In general you could write a book about what it is like to work as an architect in this day and H.. And we could bundle these essays so then the interesting thing was that they made a Buco for and they call it. I think a concept album failed fashioned uh-huh notice you don't have them anymore. But the guy that dealt with was of a similar generation as Iowa so I knew what he was talking about minimum half the essays in the book were written prior Salsa also credited in the back and then the other half was written. You know without ever having the idea of a book in mind without ever worrying about the coherence between them and the other half of the essay essays was written solely with the book and mind so the obligation of one half of the chapters is to make the other incoherent. Hof seem a little more coherent errant that they actually were in their original form. So the main work on the book was first of all writing the remaining essays but also to invent a structure structure in which the various heterogeneous parts became part of a larger hole. And that actually took a very very very long time. I think it was only shortly before delivering the manuscript that the idea of the seven myths came also as a structure that allowed most essays to remain part of the book. Since this was my first book I wanted needed to have a lot of pages right and so that's what happens. The book is sort of a halfway an accident. I guess one I find so interesting about the book. Is that that it offers a very clear picture of certain contemporary challenges but it also reaches backwards into historical and cultural contexts other spheres fears. That's actually researched in the method that you would imagine for example a PhD student. Working on something. It has a rigorous quality at the same time that it's combined with this feeling very quite frankly spontaneity. Maybe like the way that maybe would improvise in jazz understanding certain in things about certain kinds of rifts and yet expanding on those I never thought of it that way. I think it's an interesting analogy. I mean I like writing. That's where it starts and I don't like to preach and I don't think preachers make very good writers in general on the other hand. I don't like superficiality either. Hi there so. The book is a kind of a mix of somewhat heavy-handed seriously researched historical articles and quite frivolous articles like for instance the inevitable box six which talks about the bulk says the inevitable ideology of all architecture ended which is meant to be funny so I myself think it is that curious. Mix between heavy-handedness US and frivolousness. That's one of the nicer elements of the book. Yes I think that is also what makes an excellent read so interesting that you brought up the chapter about the inevitable box walks because that's actually one of my favorites and I'm just curious. You described the way in which in the name of creativity and this is quoting from your book. You say architecture sides with the masterpiece against the cliche with a unique against the common with a specific against the generic creativity. Prioritizes ties is the exception over the rule and chooses the margins over the mainstream in doing so it leaves a vast territory on addressed. I found that statement quite compelling and I was hoping that maybe you could expand on what comprises this vast territory what are its contours. Does it have type logical routes. What are its subjects subjects? I think it's a tendency of architecture as we've come to know it recently so desire for excellence and therefore almost by definition a neglect of the mainstream because I mean excellence is product of excellent conditions and excellent conditions occur very much and what I think is an interesting contrast between architecture particularly modernism today. Let's say modernism. Three quarters of a century ago is that the subjects that it addresses a very different I mean modernism of the twentieth century. Addressed Mass Housing in Mass Urbanism. It addressed problems that concerned -cerned everyone contemporary modernism. Very often makes well museums art houses. I mean far more marginal in itself very beautiful awful buildings but buildings which by definition affect far fewer people than the grandiose patients of the modernists along time ago and I have a great sympathy for the mainstream extreme. I'm a product of the mainstream and I think neglect of the mainstream is simply something over time. Architecture will not be able to afford. Yes because it's a kind of self chosen marginalization in order to shine but then you shine more brightly for fewer people. Uh so what is the choice. I mean shine for very many people or shine extremely brightly for very very few people and so hence the box. I mean in another part I write about the books where I say it's the outcome of the most sublime architectural effort and the outcome of no effort at all and I think the intriguing aspect of the twentieth century was how eerily close the two are. I have a lecture Syrian which I present Pairs I present the Church of meese only. It Campus A.. Next to a car car repair workshop in the Port of Rotterdam and if you photograph them both in black and white pretty uncanny uncannily alike and there's a whole series of this and and it's precisely that what they say frostless extra Tusch. The extremes touch it is precisely that aspect of architecture that fascinates nights me endlessly which the books the books is the most sublime and the most banal all in one. And that's what that say tries to frame. I like that very much. I thought it was a really really incredible trope to understand that particular spectrum. You also describe at another chapter the let me finish doctor. You describe a conference in which many prominent American academics are in attendance. But you reference presentation in which one of the presenters goes long categorizing a range of new waves in architecture as indicated by analysis of the Guggenheim competition entries. And then this academic then takes a bizarre turn to describing the pritzker pavilion by Gary in which he argues that this project is a deeply contextual response. This chapter in your book is hilarious areas But you know on a more serious note. It is deeply revealing and critical of the ivory towers inability to comprehend that architecture might be shaped opt by a larger political societal or economic context and that context is clearly limited if you are simply defining it as its physical surroundings of the architectural objects. A very much agree with this concern. But I'm curious. I do believe that there are those in the academy who do not ask you the political social or economic context. But I'm wondering if you have ideas on how this ought to be taught or what are the research agendas that might formulate a particular direction. The point of that article because I mean I think the Pritzker pavilion that is described probably is very contextual on not denying that but the question the article poses is how important important is that when the vast majority of people will never recognize that context in which will simply equate that building as one of a long series of buildings. Thanks of old Gary Buildings that look the same and the question. The article poses a what matters more the architectural truth or the perception of architecture in in general which seals which fades and hence. The article is a plea for architecture. Become more aware of how it is perceived more aware of its context therefore perhaps then also better able to assess its own role and it's the same margin for versus the mainstream kind of argument that features in the box which is applied here to academia. And you know. I don't have a standard. I mean as little as we have ultimately league. I struggled to answer the question. What is the method? Because I know very well how the method works but I mean I struggled to put it into words because maybe putting it into words ferry prescriptively might also equal the end of the method in the same way. I don't really have prescribe way in which I think architecture or to be taught I mean I think it's ultimately a question of disposition and mentality I think curiousness is the prime ingredient for people who study architectural textual aggressively practiced curiosity which means a certain amount. I mean Corbis wrote that. Creativity is a patient research and I believe that very much I think. Patience he's a very important ingredient of studying architecture and overall what you see in a lot of universities is that there is a very premature drive towards the product a very very premature drive to demonstrate that actually as a designer you possessed talent. I remember it clearly from starting to study architecture. I mean the main existential sustantial question I had is yes. I've chosen this study before of it. I did high school which wasn't very creative. I like this study but M. I create if m I a good designer because if I'm not I'm wasting my life on a subject for which I have. No talent and talent talent is a very relative phenomenon. I find that after doing this job for thirty years. I don't ask myself that question anymore. It's entirely uninteresting. I mean it's a product over wolf over kind of a low enough genuinely felt interest off. Also dissociating your whole work from that question am I.. Talented or am am I not. I mean you simply have to leave that behind and look at the matters in hand so this is you know when working with groups generally in universities. This is what I try to to tell people but it's also something you can't really tell you can repeat it a thousand times. I mean people have to then at a certain moment feel it for instance. The subject of the studio here at Harvard is very very deliberate because it simply makes all those questions irrelevant. I mean if you don't realize that quite am talented is irrelevant of the many any disasters. Then nothing will so. I don't have a clearly prescribed method of than patients and a certain healthy distancing yourself from that question speaking of Your Studio Anthem Urbanism and all of these Ghost towns that have erupted worldwide. And you're studying. In particular Angola. There was was a brief interlude of questioning about what the role of the architects agency is in the situation. Like that and I think what you're describing here is the kind of essential idea. Hi dear being one of inquiry but that even your assessment of the students might need to shift. But I'm curious about how are you starting this investigation. And what do you imagine are the I mean. The whole point of the studio is to answer that question so therefore the whole point is also mean not answering that question before I've given the studio the chance to answer it and of course inquiry is the point but inquiry is an intermediate state towards an answer inquiries into purpose in itself but in the studio is about massive ghost towns towels. How's that we're never inhabited built on Pascale? Nobody lives there real estate mess ups in the face of that you can't resort to the traditional reflex of an architect which is to propose a building because you're looking at situations where there are many buildings. They're all empty so proposing a building adds to the problem rather than solving anything so with the traditional reflex being cut off the point automatically then becomes. What other possible reflexes might there be in the face of this problem problem and this is what the studio has been tasked with to formulate? I was curious to know if you would be looking at examples or if the students might be investigating certain kinds of towns or communities which have similarly been built from the ground up for example in the United States. These are kind of company. Towns like Kohler Wisconsin or pullman Chicago the PULLMAN TRAIN CAR company sort of recognizing the very direct relationship between economy and inhabitation. And that was making me wonder. I guess another train of thought was there other institutional conditions for example the fallon stary that French philosopher. Charles four years. Yeah who put forth the ideas of this Utopian socialism within the context of planned communities in he envisioned for example that social and economic structures would directly address problems Salem's of poverty of with his condition. He was also talking a great deal about sets of issues that were quite sexual nature and what I was curious about. Is that there. Are these these interesting points. Maybe constellation of other kinds of conditions. That might be interesting to mine as a starting point here. Yeah perhaps I mean I think there's a number of scenarios I could see I mean and somebody touched opponent last night. The whole phenomenon of squatting you know what if the the informal in a way claims the formal and is not possible. Because I remember very clearly from the trip is that you see these informal settlements being built and people oh by building products from big building product retailers even reinforcement bars stone concrete etcetera etcetera and people build their own homes. And then later you pass by a top down settlement and it's under construction and you see that exactly. The same building products are deployed there by institutions as are deployed by people individually in the shantytowns. And you kind of then wonder. To what extent are we looking at a difference and is there a way to make ends meet and is their form of civil disobedience that can be encouraged in some way for these things to be claimed at which point once of course you propose that as an architect contact is also the very moment that as an architect you become political and critical of politics which you know architecture. Very political for a large part of the twentieth century architecture architecture. Very unpolitical in this day and age and I wouldn't be opposed to re politicizing architecture at least to a certain extent right. I think the the setup of the studio problem is not obvious. And it certainly does shy away from the object orientation that most duty would come at this problem. I think that the subject checked the studios blatantly clear. It's only the. The stereotypical answer is impossible. So therefore the potential answer is very uncertain but the problem problem is like blatantly clear and of course the most interesting problems are the most difficult wants to solve Agree in returning of moment back to the book towards the end of it. You share some very interesting thoughts on the enduring image of the city of the captive globe which was of course published in one thousand nine hundred ninety two Indo and Julia New York and you describe it on the one hand as a dystopia and foresight depicting these multifarious towers held together by an urban grid but without any collective consensus but perhaps on the other hand as architectures source of revenge thought. Those words were actually very specifically chosen descent into chaotic volatility as a way to reclaim the globe from captivity. Can you expand on that and what you mean by that. The talks about that drawing and I think it talks about the insight embedded in the drawing and in the drawing you see a number of architectural products co exist just in the context of what you can presume to be the New York Grit and they are competing and sometimes contrasting architectural ideologies. Where we up until that moment thought they were all mutually exclusive and they coexist like products in the supermarket? And it's for me. That is the beginning of postmodernism when ideology you became not a matter of conviction but of multiple choice of consumerism. And so that's an architecture that from that moment onwards agrees to disagree and exist each each on its own plot. It can continue to exist within the confines of a plot I think then the essay expands on that notion because it brings in Dubai so if New York in a way does that. Two Buildings Dubai does that to urbanism in the sense that the texture of Dubai's tapestry of different urban patterns also all with our own associations with their own idealism behind it but they're urban patterns. Almost many cities co exists in this kind of ideological vacuum you. They're the only coherent factor is is in a way the political system. That presides over the moment like a choreographer if you take that one step further and you make political systems in metro multiple choice then of course you arrive at a very interesting point. Where in a way everything has agreed to disagree an exchange value who is the only consensus impossible in the world? You can argue that. That is the basis of globalization where everything has become a matter of opinion. Everything has become a subjective active product which can be valuable when we decide. It's valuable or value less. When we decide its without value? I mean for me. It's very interesting that you know. One of the best speculative investments. You can make an art and that's often the type of art that the average person says out my little kid can do that too. That is extremely valuable. And it's extremely value. You lose it's a matter of a mood swing almost whether it sublime or banal. That's where the books comes in again. Is the books. Donald Judd masterpiece sir. Is the box like a car. It's et Cetera et CETERA. So it seems that in the ultimate prioritization of economic values the economy has staked its fate eight on the most volatile thing of all. And that's where I think. Hole of a sudden architecture and artistic utterances can strangely conduct a form of revenge because because they have the potential in their head to completely derail the system once they realize they have that power and that's in short what the essay tries to say but it's the most difficult theoretical essay in the book. Because it's it's also an open question you know you have done a very wide range of work. What you've accomplished is so diverse? What what has been one of the most difficult moments along the journey? Thus far I mean seventy five percent of everything you do doesn't end up in any physical who form and I'm very philosophical about it in the sense that I think a lot of these experiences are the most instructive experiences. I've gone through but but that is largely talking. In hindsight the projects get built. Everybody has seen them. I mean general architectural publications. They'll talk about results. They'll talk about buildings and I I for one think it is very interesting to talk about the works of architecture but about the work of architect and to some extent something that doesn't get built as as a more suitable vehicle than something that does get bill. Because you don't have the product to distract you. That's right well I wanted to thank you so much for spending the morning with us and sharing sharing your insight not only into practice but it really on the state of our profession and just delighted to have this conversation with you this morning.

"Hey, guys have an exciting announcement to share with you today. Until now, you could only listen to future hindsight internet or on a podcast up. Well, that's about to change starting this week. Future hindsight is hitting the airwaves on community radio station KOA WS Ninety two point five in western. Oma County. California. If you're in the area, I hope you'll listen to our special one hour episodes every Wednesday at six PM Pacific Time. CHECK OUT KO WS daddy two dash five dot org. And if you know the local station near you that could use some new hard hitting interviews like. Please, reach out to us and we'll work on a partnership. Thanks again for listening and supporting the PODCAST. It means so much to us here. We're so grateful to be able to reach you every week. Keep safe and stay engaged. Only Welcome to future hindsight I'm your host, Milad? Each week I speak with citizen change makers who sparked civic engagement in our society. Our guest today is Alice Marwick. She's an assistant professor in the Department of Communication and faculty affiliate at the Center for Media, Law and policy at the University of North Carolina. At Chapel Hill, as well as a faculty adviser to the media manipulation project at their data and society research institute she focuses on the social political and cultural implications of Popular Social Media Technologies and studies far right online subcultures and their use of social media to spread misinformation. During this pandemic time accompanied by calls for and Justice and a presidential election I wanted to find out if social media can actually build a movement build real political power, and if a solid social media presence can help win elections, I think black lives. Matter is the epitome of what we would call Hashtag activism in that it's really a native social media activist movement. The movement started when trying to bring awareness to the deaths of black people and acts of police brutality that we're not being covered by mainstream media that social media became. A platform to push these events into mainstream consciousness and to try to get people to pay attention to them, and let's be clear. This has been a long process coming these people who are involved in black lives mattered have been agitating for years to get these things on the national agenda as they are. Now, we talk about the role of social media in political power building movements, such as from Hashtag, activism like black lives, matter, and the more extensive use of social media by all politicians during this election cycle due to covid nineteen. We recorded this conversation in the summer well, before the president himself contracted covid. So perhaps, social media will now matter even more in these coming weeks leading up to election day. Let's listen in. Thank you so much for joining us. It's great to be here. I'm interested in political power building and the role of social media and or online communities in this process especially now in the time of Covid and black lives matter and taking in everything essentially online. What was the defining breakthrough practice in social media? For the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen because I think that's for us for most people in popular. Lore. Where we feel like Oh, wait what happened. But you think. The thing about president trump is he already had this extremely strong social media presence that was notorious for years before he became a candidate. And he was very very tied into current news cycles and sort of outrage cycles on social media cable, News, legacy media, things like that. So you have a candidate who doesn't have to learn how to do that stuff who's already. Using these tools to connect with a constituency who then able to transform that from a sort of Phantom into a set of potential voters and I think that's a really big difference between trump and a lot of other contemporary politicians especially in his generation. Yeah. As you said, he has a large following and I've been living in New York for a long time and so we have always known him to. Be This master manipulated the media always putting himself on page six in The York Post, or even other local newspapers where we read about trump all the time, and for the rest of the country was a little bit different. But what are the things that we can learn from his campaign? The way he did it in terms of what we can do today in this environment because nobody can really stump person. That's a good question. Many of the more traditional forms of political address are off the table given the COVID pandemic. You have this sort of limited set of channels through which politicians are able to communicate with the public and some politicians like A. A. Really. Effective at doing that, right like they are able to harness social media like twitter or instagram or instagram live and sees case to sort of humanize themselves, put forth their political positions appeal to their constituents and build a broader base. Other people are not so good at that. Joe. Biden's campaign has not really taken advantage of the participatory afford of the social lab. But on the other hand, some people might say that that prevents him from making the types of Gafsa. He's historically made when doing these in person events I think this really does favor incumbents and people who are known quantity is whereas. More traditionally, you have these sort of up and coming young politicians who'd be doing all this glad-handling and kissing babies and whatnot just to kind of get their name out there, and that's not gonNa be possible. So the people who can do a good job of creating catchy ads on Youtube or having a fun twitter account or doing a good job of going on political podcasts or things like that I think those are the ones who can get attention and sort of build a following for themselves even without the person political events that we've become accustomed to. I kinda want to go back to the work that you've done on the. All right because I think they were instrumental in helping, trump, get elected and sort of draw parallel of maybe what's possible for black lives matter right now I heard on the radio yesterday that the defining difference between the civil rights movement of the sixties and demands for equity for blog lives now is that everybody's on social media and everybody can see what's happening as opposed to waiting for the newspaper. Do you think there is. An opportunity for black lives matter or police reform you name it right in this moment. In terms of using social media to advance their cause. Absolutely I think black lives matter is the epitome of what we would call Hashtag activism in that it's really a native social media activist movement. The name of the movement black lives matter is a Hashtag the movement started when trying to bring awareness to the deaths of black people and acts of police brutality that were not being covered by mainstream media that social media became a platform to push these events into mainstream. Try to get people to pay attention to them, and let's be clear. This has been a long process coming these people who are involved in black lives matter have been agitating for years to get these things on the national agenda as they are. Now, right now, we're in a really interesting position because a great deal of people who are not those core. Original members or the core people who marched like fourteen or fifteen are still showing a great deal of support for black lives. Matter. On social media. So there's this kind of low overhead actions that people can do. They can re tweet a message about black lives matter. They can change their profile picture on facebook. They can post an instagram story that shows their support for black lives matter, and these might not be people who would go to a protest or who would necessarily donate money to a bail fund, but it creates a sort of sense of consensus and this idea of a very broad movement with a wide wide social base, and so you can still consider. Yourself a supporter of black lives matter. Even if you're not doing what we would think of as traditional forms of political participation and I think that's very advantageous because it shows how much grassroots support there really is for things like police reform, bail reform changes in accountability laws for police and things like that that these really are issues that are not fringe issues they're not far left issues. They're not just black issues there issues that do have a broad base of support making that visible is one of the great advantages of social media activism. What do you think is the sort of like the tipping point for how social media can bring a grassroots movement into the foreground like what kind of traction does it need to get an order for people to be like wait that actually matters we have to pay attention. I think it's really dependent on the issue at hand and what else is going on in the news cycle I don't think you can necessarily design campaign or duplicate a campaign to have political significance. You know there are dozens, hundreds, thousands of incidents that people call out on social media or hashtags that our political that people try to promote that don't have the. Kind of uptake that black lives matter or me to had, and so it's partly like trying to design an advertisement to go viral to a certain extent. There's something that's like ineffable about it with black lives matter I think it's the cumulation of these acts over and over and over again seeing the killing of all of these black people and then also the. Consistency of these protests events that have also been going on where people are getting out into the community in person and that's happening again and again for years on and you know there's ebbs and flows in it, but you really see sort of a critical momentum coming to pass I think it's a combination of sustained attention of there being sort of key events in the news and the more traditional news cycle that do tie into the activists campaign, and also just what is the political climate otherwise like right now in point of time where There's been a vast increase in. Left wing activism since two, thousand sixteen a lot of people are very unhappy with how the right wing establishment has handled. The pandemic and people are very frustrated and angry because they have been stuck inside for month. So there's a sort of critical mass of different factors that, I think contribute to it. It's also worth saying that we might not fully understand all of this for several years sometimes it requires. Hindsight, to really understand the significance a current moment. Yeah. That's definitely true. Today's episode of future. Hindsight is sponsored by the Jordan Harbinger show Jordan show which apple named one of its best of two thousand eighteen is aimed at making you a better informed more critical thinker. So you can get a sense of how the world actually works and come to your own conclusions about what's happening even inside your own brain. Every week Jordan interviews people with something interesting to teach you and his questions are designed to maximize those lessons. You never quite know who you're going to be listening to but Jordan's Ben and the podcast game for a long time and I can safely say there's something in archives for everyone. If you like future hindsight I, think you'll enjoy their Jordan harbinger show to search for the door and harbinger show on apple podcast spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also find the show at Jordan. Harbinger. Dot Com in terms of those raw footage that we see today when people are protesting or being civically engaged in some sense how can we actually make it a force for good in terms of being you know good citizens. When you're talking about footage from protests you're often talking about footage that there's a very real possibility that will be run through facial recognition systems or it will be used by government agencies to go after people. The extent to which government agencies like ice you social media data is just completely unknown. We know that ice is looking through social media to try to identify potentially undocumented people. But what we don't know is how people are getting access to that whether they're getting access to it through the government or through the social media platform themselves. Sometimes, governments are buying that information from private data brokers, and because there's a lack of regulation, there's no requirement that you're ever notified. You go to a protest have somebody used their cell phone to capture you at. The protest on video and that could be used in a criminal case against you several years down the road, and because there isn't legal protections and people aren't aware of the extent of this data collection and also there's new tools and new technologies being developed constantly without any kind of oversight in terms of ethics or how they should be used. You get into a position where people are having to try to predict how data might be used or how it might be combined with other data years down the road, and that's just not a realistic. Requirement for anybody, we should be able to peaceably assemble and make our political beliefs and desires known without worrying that it might come back to haunt US years from now or without having to worry that that might get combined with data. We've provided in some other contexts to hurt us in some other way, and obviously the people who are most vulnerable and other ways like people who are poor or don't have a lot of educational resources or people of Color. Queer people are going to be the most likely to be affected by these shifts and changes technologies. So in what way has social media changed our relationship to politics. That's a big question. Social, media has opened up ways for us to participate in politics and it's also opened up two types of information. We can know about political issues. If you think about the pre. Social. Media Era. Most information about what's going on vis-a-vis government politics current events. Is Coming from mainstream legacy media and that's like a very limited set of sources. They're often very controlled the gate keep the kinds of information that are available to people they often rely heavily on official sources. So with social media, you have the ability to read I witness accounts of things and see you know cell phone videos of protests or police brutality or sexual harassment or things like that. You are able to see political speeches as they happen you get to interpret them yourselves rather than reading what the New York Times or USA Today has to say about them. But at the same time, social media has allowed for an enormous amount of misinformation and disinformation and what we call hyper partisan media, which is media that covers current events with a heavy ideologically biased spin. So you have to be a little bit more careful about what you trust on social media because a lot of the markers that we use to use to assess the credibility of information are completely different or they're missing. Social media's also sped up the news cycle enormously. In the same way that the shift from newspapers in the nightly news to twenty four, seven cable news really affected the types of events that were covered and the frequency of coverage Social Media, which is twenty, four, seven, three, sixty, five never ends. It changes the types of things that people talk about but it also creates a sense I think of information overload or what people call doom scrolling where you're just going through twitter feed or the New York Times or something it's just bad story after story negative after negative. So, I think a lot of these things have really changed the way that we process information that civic or political as well as the types of things that we believe we can do about it. You can use social media to voice your opinion to participate in Hashtag campaign to sign a petition to connect with other people to learn about political issues and some of these ways of participation look very different from more traditional forms like voting or going to a political protest. That's a good answer. But let me ask you this question then. How has the use of social media progressed since the two thousand sixteen election and in what way is this race so far different than twenty sixteen, just social media side. I think it's impossible to disentangle social media and legacy media at this point because so much of what traditional media covers is based on what's trending on social media and so many journalists are deeply tied into social media also, although a lot of people do get their news from social media, still most people get their news from TV to be honest. So we have to think about this as immediate ecosystem rather than social media versus legacy media. But since two thousand sixteen I, think there's been a real reckoning by a lot of. Media people whether they're in native digital media or traditional journalism about the way that the two thousand sixteen campaign was covered. You know we're starting to see journalists be much more likely to call out blatant lies that politicians might say social media companies are starting now to label. Content as disinformation misinformation even if it's coming from a high profile elite politician, these are big differences. I think people are starting to shy away from using terms like inappropriate or racially divisive, and now they're like, no that was racist like we're going to say it. There's a sense that there needs to be a little less of this beating around the Bush and more. Being clear about when politicians are lying or when there's manipulation going on we're GONNA call it out. In Two thousand sixteen also the alright was really really effective at pranking the media and getting their stories and their news frames into the media and I think a lot of people recognized that that was overall quite bad and that this was a very small number of people who should not have gotten the type of coverage that they did and it shouldn't have had the impact that it did. So I think more journalists now are aware of when they're covering fringe groups. There's is to do that responsibly or irresponsibly, and people are much more careful about covering it responsibly. Similarly. We know that a lot of misinformation disinformation and hoaxes originate on social media and I think people are much smarter now about which of those hoaxes they're going to amplify how much time they're going to give to such things and whether or not. They let that type of information spread beyond social media because it's one thing if something's trending on twitter, it's another thing if the New York Times is covering it. Oh for sure. Yes. So as an everyday person, how can I behave responsibly when it comes to politics on social media? I think there's a lot of different ways that people can behave vis-a-vis politics and social media. I think if you don't want to interact with politics on social media, that's a perfectly legitimate. Option but I guess my number, one thing would be trying to discourage people from sharing inflammatory stories if they're not sure that are true. And also liked people to think twice before participating in socially shaming on the Internet. Now this is where you get into really tricky things because there are certainly people who do terrible things that are only amplified because of social media and it's through that amplification that they're held accountable but. This is a tactic that's used by both the left and the right and it can. Really have consequences that I don't think any of us want like people getting death threats or people getting swatted or things like that. So. I would say being careful about spreading incorrect information and just kind of taking a moment before you blast somebody on social media for something that you want to shame them for. So. Unbalanced would you say that social media has been good for democracy? There's a lot of things that have been much worse for democracy than social media like gerrymandering or voter suppression. Those have far more significant consequences negatively for people's ability to participate in an egalitarian way in the political process, right like the systematic disenfranchisement of African American men I think is very anti-democratic. There's been a lot of attention to social media as sort of scapegoat for a lot of other things that have gone wrong in this country over the last decade or so and obviously, very easy targets. These incredibly huge wealthy corporations run by usually young white guys. I'm by no means defending many of facebook's terrible choices. But when we look at what's fundamentally undermining democracy, it's not people talking to each other on social media. It's not even tech companies getting rich off people talking about social media. Use of dark money and politics and lobbying, and the fact that to get into congress now you have to be a millionaire. So I'd like people to think about the political system a little bit more holistically and rather than isolating actors like Social Media Companies Look at what it is that they represent structurally right which often economic inequality and the inability of people. To Trust institutions because they've been in many cases betrayed by those same institutions for decades. So I. Don't necessarily know I would say social media has been bad or good for democracy I certainly think it's opened up the number of diverse voices who can participate in politics and for that I. Think it's a great thing of course, it also does have its downsides. Right yeah. Nothing is the only one way. Two Sides to every coin and I agree with you that of course, systematic disenfranchisement matters a whole lot more for democratic process. So last question. Looking into the future what makes you hopeful? I think the sea change around. Recognition Systemic racism has been very heartening in the last few months, but it remains to be seen whether that's going to have long lasting impact. I like what I'm seeing Gen Z. kind of traveling on Tiktok and things like that trying to kind of mess things up and do their direct political actions like buying up tickets to the trump rallies. Encouraging. For the time being, but we'll see there's broad recognition of things that when I was growing up were really only articulated. In like far left communities or in feminists, communities or inquiry communities for example, that now there's much more wide recognition of their importance but you know it remains to be seen I. If you'd asked me in twenty fifteen, whether I would have seen twenty twenty this way I would have been horrified to see what has happened this year. So you know it's hard to predict definitely we. Need for this year to turn out this way a pandemic and yeah that that was probably last on my. Prediction card. Right. Yes. Exactly. Well, thank you so much for your time. Thank you for being on future hindsight, and thank you for your scholarship. Thanks for speaking with me today. I started this interview with the question of whether social media can build a political movement. The answer is definitely, yes. Black lives matter is proof that social media activism works though perhaps it doesn't work in the way we normally think of power building. The value of mainstreaming the recognition of systemic racism and revealing the widespread support for change is perhaps only truly quantifiable from a future point. One caveat I would like to add here is that the accompanying protests in the streets and the footage of brutality against protestors have been instrumental in strengthening the cause. So it isn't purely social media alone. Still the prevalent use of social media has changed our political discourse and the way we think about what's possible when we demand accountability and better? Governance. Next week, our guest is Nathan Stoltzfus. He's the Dorothy and Jonathan Rentals professor of Holocaust Studies in the arts and Sciences. and Professor of history at Florida State. University. He's also the author of Hitler's compromises coercion and consensus in Nazi Germany Fascism is so important for the twentieth century because before then dictators older Kratz had. Usually to family legacy but since the French revolution at least. The people expected to have the same politics. This is why Hitler is modern and that very important aspect that he wanted to include the people and be representing themselves as presenting the will of the people. And this was not so important in Trivia. So talkers sees in fact, we can say that there was pioneers of the kinds of popular autocracies. We see a day in the twenty first century, we talk about the role of legitimacy popularity and even protests in building maintaining and exerting political power.

220: How to Move Forward When You're An Unemployed Side Hustler

"I was done investing so much energy into trying to work for other people and I was ready to invest into myself. You're listening to side hustle pro, the protests that teaches you to build and grow your side Hustle from passion project to profitable business and I'm your host Michaela Matthews of. So. Let's get started. Hey guys. Welcome. Welcome back to the show. It's not Kayla here and I'm back with a solo. It's been a minute right? Well, here we are in October I can't believe it's October y'all like this year. It's just I. Mean I don't even have to say you know already and we also know that the levels of unemployment right now are at an all time high. Due to the effect that Cuvette has had on first of all human beings and then supply chains businesses. The way we run businesses and having to close businesses because of the fact that that foot traffic isn't there or people are not able to patronize those businesses. So in the last week alone I have seen many friends and acquaintances get furloughed or laid off fired and my. Heart really really really goes out to everyone. So it's just been on my heart to do this episode I decided to share again, my own story of unemployment and some tips that may be able to help you or someone you know get through this time as a site hustler who is now on employed doesn't have that full-time job to supplement the side hustle Share this with a friend or someone you know who might appreciate it and yes, you'll get through it. They will get through it. Please remind them that this too shall pass So let's let me share a little bit about my story for those of you who don't know or maybe you've heard bits and pieces of it but not the whole thing let's get into it. In Twenty fifteen I went through a seven month period of unemployment of not having a fulltime job I was recently graduated from Grad, school and yes I went from May to December without fulltime job. And now these were different circumstances. Obviously, it wasn't a pandemic it wasn't a lay off or furlough. So there are different circumstances surrounding me not having a fulltime job. However, it was still challenging sometimes discouraging time in my life and I would hate for anyone to be going through this alone feeling the same feelings of embarrassment sometimes hopelessness like I like will ever find a job. Feeling regret like should I have done XYZ differently should have explored a different career should I have worked in a different field and so on and so on I don't want you guys beating yourself up. So I'm devoting this episode to share in what helped me to keep my head up and push forward when I was unemployed and how I stayed on the side hustle path through it. All I. A little back story on how I came to be unemployed for years ago. Was it four years now? Hold on hold on let me do five years ago. I was attending graduate school for my masters of Business Administration at the University of Michigan Ross, School of business in the summer between my first and second years of business school. I was an MBA intern at Google. I was really excited at the time to land. This was a coveted internships I was so excited to land Google and dive headfirst into the internship I moved out to mountain view for the summer as working in AD sales. Now, for most MBA internships the goal and the expectation is. That you have such great internship that at the end of the ten to twelve weeks in your internship, you'll be extended a full time job offer from that company. That's how it's supposed to work well, that in happened in my case despite working hard despite getting APL-, employees, recommendations, and awards that summer and doing all I could to seem like I was fitting into the culture because you know that's big and like the whole Silicon Valley Tech World doing everything I could to be new Gli. That what they call it I don't even know anymore. googly. Remember, can you believe this was one such like an important part of my life? I promise you will be laughing one day to at this phase in your life So I was doing all I could to fit the culture and really land that job. But in hindsight that was not the right opportunity for me. So no matter what it probably just. was meant to be and I'm glad that it happened that way. However at the time, it didn't feel like this I did not get the full-time offer. I was devastated I was pretty dejected and spent the rest of the academic year dodging my friends, my classmates questions about what I was going to be doing post business school, and then graduated with no job in May of that year. From May to November, I would go on interview for job after job only to receive even more rejections at one point after going through six rounds of interviews with Uber for at the time they were launched Uber Eats I was going for marketing role with Uber eats and I got turned down to six rounds of interview. And you know at that point when you go for six interviews with the same company like that is exhausting, you really are like I got to get this role but I didn't get it and that was a moment for me when it clicks I said. Enough is enough I was done investing so much energy into trying to work for other people and I was ready to invest into myself. So let me be clear here. Don't get me wrong. I was still looking for a job I in no way meant that I was gonNA quit looking for jobs and just become an entrepreneur at that point but I knew that I was so depleted in terms of self confidence and self empowerment that I needed to do something differently. Shortly. After making that revelation I began freelancing as an independent social media consulting because at this point you know money funds are running low and. Full transparency even though at the time I was living with my then boyfriend now husband Killer. Doesn't like not having something to bring to the table? Okay. I like my pockets to be full. I like to have money my bank account, and there's no way in hell that I was not going to find a way to bring some income, and so that's what I did. I started freelancing social media consulting at that point I have into my network for that role and I went and did some freelance work for the organization. That I once was a part of two. So it's called MLC and I've mentioned it many times management leadership for tomorrow I started freelancing with them social media, consulting boom tablets you network make sure you have some money in your pocket why I was doing that freelancing still looking for jobs I dusted off my old blog and started writing again. Now, this process came about with me. Having to do a survey like talks about in a previous episode because I was so depleted to reach out to friends and just ask them listen. What am I good at because I really didn't remember I didn't animus survey and I just ask them to pour back in semi. Tell me where do you see me working what you know, what what are my strengths one of my weaknesses what skills should I lean into and through that survey it was made clear to me that da I need to lean into my riding and everything that I enjoy doing that I ignore because I'm like Oh this is a job after off of this like not GonNa get hired from this. So I don't have time to do that. But. Once I returned to that in that process I regain my confidence. This was so important because again. If job-hunting knocks away your confidence that's going to present itself in interviews that's going to present itself in you know your day to day mental health and how you feel about yourself and being able to get out of bed being able to have the motivation to search for jobs to apply and Co customize resumes because you know you can't just send in the same resume and cover later for cover letter for every job. So that means that you have to be motivated to do this work and get up every morning and like start start this marathon. So regaining lack confidence whatever you need to do. To get back, you have to do it. It's not easy getting rejected week after week I know that from experience and as I recommitted to something that I had always been passionate about I was able to develop authentic an interesting content online. Within months of freelancing, I landed a job working for NPR National Public Radio. So it was actually my freelancing plus me starting to blog again and put up my own content online a established, my personal brand show how I think show how I write show my creative side fat ended up letting me my job as senior manager of Social Media Marketing at MPR. I would have never gotten that job. If I didn't a for myself reestablish confidence, stay true to myself and lean into my natural gifts. But. But what but big but here? By, the time I started working fulltime again for NPR I was already knee deep in building up my personal brain. It was something I. was transparent about it was on my way at this point because I felt it was such a testament to who I was and what skills I would bring to a company in a Social Media Marketing Role In addition, I had no plans to stop building my personal brand because I had already decided to always invest in myself as much as I do a job I knew I was not going to let that go the side spirit had cultivated.

Throughout the experience of unemployment I learned some valuable valuable lessons that I want to share with you today. So here's what the experience taught me about keeping your head up and pushing forward number one. No that this moment any moment when things don't work out, the way you had hoped is just a moment of redirection. My first instinct was to wallow in self pity and did I had moments of that had moments of crying and just say you know what I'm just I'm not good there. Right I'm not about this I'm not that I don't know from ever going to get a job. Can you believe that like that's what I was saying to myself You sometimes have to tell your own self to shut up like you cannot listen to the words you tell yourself that are negative I at the time salt felt so ashamed and like every rejection and no was an indication of myself worth. What I had to do, what I had to learn was that failure is an event. It's a mere moment in time that will pass it is not a personality trait. By the way I heard that for the first time on a podcast by leaked -til that resonated with me when she said that failure is an advance, it is not. This character trait. That belongs to you. So shake it off, shake that off and understand that that moment is gone. It's gone. Now let's let's move forward. Don't put on that failure badge like you are now permanently a failure and this is part of your identity. It is not a rejection, a furlough a layoff does not define you. That's number one get that in your brain. Number to nurture your side hustles you guys. Have, shared this story before as well. My early podcast about this experience of not getting the Google offer and I'll keep seen it. I once heard an executive remark don't get your ass confused with your chair. He was cautioning that no one is immune to be in fired. So what I took away from that is that you can never get too comfortable at any even if it seems super, secure. You can never get too comfortable that means you have to nurture your passions of work or even nurture the skills you have at work that you. You want to be able to use it. Any other role that you go to you are the talent. Okay. You're not the talent for that job you are the talent. So at this moment whether you are unemployed whether you're unemployed employed, what have you you needs to be thinking what is the brand of me who is? The brand of Michaela is what I started to work on in that summer of Twenty fifteen i. also think it has kind of the Bas Oma Saint John Effect. Now, if those of you know almost she is a very fabulous inspiring marketing executive that has had very high profile and impactful roles at companies such as Apple Uber and is now at Netflix's now she invested in the brand of Zuma so and she is bad as bows on instagram and you know. If she was just focused on Oh i WanNa make my I WANNA do my role I want to do my job really great I want to be promoted here and I want to be known as the best senior VP of marketing at apple she might still be at apple or if she were to get furloughed she would not know what to do with herself Because her identity was so ingrained in being this XYZ title at this Xyz. Company instead, she started building the brand of her she let people know what she stands for what she does and she builds her opportunities from there. So brands are attracted to you when they know what it is. You do what it is. You're capable of because you have made that so clear. So. Start Building your personal brand in addition to in addition to nurture near side hustles because side hustles could potentially bring in additional income but if not. Building your personal brand is so important for getting that next opportunity in addition to building that personal start posting you guys do not suffer in silence. No, one can help you insights. One of the ways that i. have gotten jobs and opportunities is when I started posting what I think and what my insight sorry about the industry that I work in Lynton and on twitter as people share and interact with your post and see it's kind of like you establish yourself as a thought leader in these particular industries and then opportunities do start to come to you. This. Actually works you have so so much room to go out there and establish your territory on these social media profiles but I you have to not suffer in silence. You have to put yourself out there and number one. Let people know that you you've been furloughed or you're open to opportunities or you're open to freelance opportunities because no one can help you in silence number two then. Instead of waiting for the opportunities to come to you, you start doing the work you just start doing side projects in that field highlighting the side project. So people can see Oh, when I hire her you know that's the kind of work she can produce Oh. This is really interesting or Oh I never thought about that I need to hire her for this I have I have. This thing where no such so and so who's been talking about doing a similar project that she's just done those will start turning when you start posting and you start highlighting your skills. So sharing what you create whether it's a physical thing that you're creating or an online thing start sharing the fact that you can do this skill also pay attention to who is hiring. All right. We are seeing the ways, the companies that are doing well and thriving through Cova versus the companies that are not obviously companies that are very digitally established who are online who do most of their business online are doing better. So how can you position your scales make them transferable for some of these companies and just go after them don't just go after any company make sure these are companies that are hiring. Again tap into your network. For freelance work. So in addition to you know looking at long-term roles, reach out to people who you may be able to do freelance work for. So for example, if you worked for a company before and you know that right now, they're not able to bring on new hires, but they are open to project-by-project freelance work. Don't be above reaching out pitching yourself you might be working. At a lower rate. So for example, in two, thousand, fifteen when I was freelancing, I was working at a lower rate however, that was still money my pocket that went toward spills and expenses, and that's all that I needed live below my means in that money in my pocket was very helpful. Now also start learning about possible revenue streams so as your side hustling start to research. And understand how people actually make money in your business from that side Hustle. If you're not making money already and if you're making money double down on what it is that makes you money in that stream all legal above board of course. But yes, doubled down on the illegal ways to make money and finally think about pivoting. Is it time for a new career? Is it time? Where you can invest in a short online program or a boot camp or something that will take the skills that you currently have and up it to another level where you can pivot into a new field. Perhaps this is the time. Hopefully, if you have some savings or if you have a cushion to start thinking about things you've always wanted to do, but you've said to yourself. Hey. Great job you know that sounds interesting but I just don't know when I would do it. Maybe now can be an opportunity and again. I, say this with with all the love and support in the world I know none of this is easy. Nobody was expecting any of this at the times are hard and each day is a fight to just make sure that your mental health stays on track and that you don't get bogged down by this Hereford news cycle and all that's going on in the world I don't take any of that for granted I. Just hope that some of this can be helpful to you and that you will share it with someone who it can be helpful for as well. I'm no HR expert you guys but this. Is What helped me to put one foot in front of the other and keep hustling a win I was not sure when I was going to get my next opportunity most importantly unemployment helped me to become a side hustle pro where I was once ignoring my sight passions and the things that I enjoy doing and just solely focusing on working for someone else if finally allow me to see hey, your dreams and the things you enjoy doing are important as well, and every company started with one person's ideas. Why can't you do the same thing? So of on new as the one, another job to support me. I also, that was the first time when I started to think about. As a viable path. So I hope and pray for you fat as you get through this season of uncertainty you know that one day you'll be through this moment that this too shall pass and that you start doing whatever it is of these steps that I shared that can help. You suggest move forward to that next thing to bring in income and to keep that head up and push forward. All right guys.

I'm so excited to be here. I'm really excited to have you to this is is actually a subject today that we have never even been close to talking about on this podcast and so i'm i'm very excited to have an expert in something so specific to come and share stories with us today so let's start though with learning in a little bit more about you and who you are and where you come from and so yeah tell us who is teri sure so my name is terry tacoma and and i'd trade stocks fulltime but i haven't always been a trader so actually used to be an education before i started trading and traveling fulltime. I was an assistant edible of an elementary school but it was under career. Yes it's such a big leap. Everyone's like how did you become a trader from being in education but the thing is when i was in education. I was still a little trapped. I felt like i think i was working. All the time. Always on the clock always had different things to do. I was eating stressed. My assistant principal obama other other system principal in high. We'd take turns crying in the bathroom like we just were overwhelmed over worked in just stressed beyond measure and i remember one day. My friend passed away and it was one of those days where i'd like a drink up to the school and i remember seeing my phone flashing and i was like guys. This is my with my friends so i'm like you'll know that i need to prepare for these students today. I gotta get my mind right. What are you doing. What are you texting about and then i saw that they were telling me that one of my a really good friends had passed and i remember looking at the cell phone and i was like i can't deal with this right now. 'cause i gotta walk into the school and pretend like i'm okay in front of all these kids kids in front of staff. I didn't even have time to really grieve because i had to be on on point. You know like you had to just have your face on and pretend like everything. Everything was okay and i remember that day telling myself. This is not gonna work like something's got to change and i remember writing in my journal like if i could do do anything in the world what would it be an it was traveling and then trading stocks and i know that it's going to sound so weird but i i love. I love dogs doc. I love companies so for me like me looking at ceos and new products coming out is like fantasy football for me the way guys with that like looking at all the different players. That's how i feel when i look at companies it's random but in my journal that her memorizing <unk> life is too short like what else could i do. It was traveled the world trade stocks and actually that whole year as i was still in assistant principal. I started working towards that goal so i started taking courses on trading because i knew that there was a way to make your money work for you so i said i got good enough to make three hundred dollars a day. That's what i needed the to replace my income. If i could just make three hundred dollars a day then i could quit my job and start traveling and lo and behold. I worked myself up one hundred dollars a okay okay okay. This is working two hundred dollars a day at three hundred dollars a day. I was able to quit and then start traveling full-time trading fulltime so that to me good for you that was quite a story is crazy. I like her doing what now yeah you know. It's funny because after meeting you 'cause we met in person at crafting commerce and i can so it's funny because at a conference it's like that like you know everybody's noncha- printer and everybody's got this energy about them and when you said that you had been a principal i could immediately see you with a whole bunch lynch of kids around like you have such big energy for that you know <hes> but at the same time it's still a job. It's still the kind of job that can wear anybody. Nobody down and i feel like a lot of the things that you said a lot of people out. There are going to relate to within their own jobs and i mean who doesn't have a dream to be able to to replace their income and travel. I mean i feel like a lot of people listening are going to relate to that. So can you tell us a little bit more about what that path path looked like for you like what how how long did it take and what kind of i guess. What kind of like how. How did you start so that you could make it a reality and then. Where did you go sure so. There's two pieces to it. So one is the like how did i start traveling traveling full-time and then there's the how did you start trading full-time and so with the trading piece learning how to trade great and learning how to invest in stocks opening portfolio and learning how to pick good companies and then knowing when to get in and out of a trade so those are the basic the pieces that you need to know to learn how to trade learning how to do that actually doesn't take a lot of time so even when i teach other people i tell them you can learn how to trade within within about eight weeks less than sixty days i can teach you how to trade while but then it does take about a year of practice so i think of it kinda like a doctor so you go to school. Get all the knowledge with have residency so there is some time where you'll just be learning the market and learning your stocks and you know what happens during an election election-year is different than what happens during a you know a trade war so some of that is just just being around and kind of seeing how the market works so i would say it took me about a year from taking classes to actually feeling like i'd be confident doing full-time <hes> but then with traveling ling astounded program it was called. We all the time and i'm not sure if it's even around anymore but it's kinda like a remote year where they were going and travelling to a difference state peter city around the world for a month at a time so i joined a program like this right after i quit in july in october i was on a plane you you know had sold all my stuff on a plane to meet people at all no place i don't know but just my first place was south korea and it was beautiful beautiful i had no that was not ever on my bucket list of places to go when i got there. I was just amazed and loved it so i did. One of those was like work like work in travel programs where we just traveled from place to place it among for a month at a time yeah that is really cool in itself and i have heard of those it was. I don't know if we roam out but there are some other ones that i've definitely seen like come across like my instagram or something you know. How was that like so is. Is that the year that you mean that you took to kind of. Do your stock residency did it so my full time job while i was traveling was trading so i had to pay like the program was about two thousand dollars a month so i had to make sure that i was trading trading enough to forty two thousand dollars a month and then i like to eat so ask favor that and then like we did all these fun excursions. It's like every time i was in a place out. Go somewhere else so like from south korea also visited japan than we did thailand from thailand i went to several islands and then into vietnam and from vietnam actually went to australia because they had cheap flights from vietnam for some reason. I don't know why but that was great yeah so yes by that was my residency. While i was traveling. I was still trading every day trying to make sure that i could keep up my three hundred dollars a day that that i had learned the year before okay and i did it the yeah which is amazing. Did you start all of this like during the last year of your the principal job or i mean how did it. How long did it from day from day zero of i think i could do this to making three hundred dollars a day. How how long was that so. I've been trading for nine years so i would say that before i decided to make it a full-time thing ahead some interest in stocks and investing so i had been looking at like the c._n._b._c. channel and trying to make it work on my own knowledge i that i could make my own algorithm so like i went to undergrad at m._i._t. And had seen about investing in i in turn on wall street so i kind of had some money. Knowledge uh-huh never done it for myself okay so this was the first time that i was saying you know what i'm gonna make this a reality for me to replace my income and that once i made the decision like that mindset shift it took about a year to be serious about it. That's amazing congratulations could for you you yeah no. I think the biggest thing that keeps people from investing is fear. They're afraid that they're gonna lose money. They're afraid that they don't have enough money to start. They're afraid that like at this thing. They're just afraid that they're supposed to buying holds. They're afraid to actually sell it to use it for income. There's just so many layers of the fear that have been perpetuated about investing in the stock market so i think really the first big thing is just a mindset shift that this is possible and once you do that then you're like wait. It's not that hard. I can do this. I bet you've learned so much about your confidence. Levels have skyrocketed since you started started <hes> only yet still in the beginning like i one of the things that i have a course now and i teach students had trade but one of the biggest things we talk about risk management schmidt because when i was first trading at lost a lot because i didn't know what i was doing so just some of the things like i teach them now so that they they don't have to lose a guy did but some of the mistakes that i made in the beginning were just like our members a one day i was in thailand. This is actually my favorite day like on earth because lewinsky thailand for the <hes> the celebration where they light the candles and then all the candles start flying all over the place. Have you been there during that time and i haven't been for the festival but i i have been. I was actually in in chiang mai ripe before that festival. I left. I left right before they did it a few years ago. You gotta go back here. It's beautiful. It was gorgeous so so we had litter lanterns and then made these wishes and i had just made his wish about like living my best life finn i went so in in my i still was trading u._s. Stocks oh. I wouldn't like the stock market wouldn't open until late at night so i did this. Whole festival festival had this great experience and then that night i went to trade and that was in neither i had lost my biggest loss ever and it was an overnight overnight raid. I had invested in payout so you guys 'cause is not even around anymore but i had been tested in fan dora because i thought that pandora was going to rule the world like i was like all the cars their cell phones and this is the way that everyone's gonna listen to their music little. Did i know that spotify the other thing is going to be so much better but so that day they had their earnings come out in whenever stock has their earnings than the <hes> stock price can fluctuate huge so he could either go up or down a lot but i thought well. I'm about to be rich because i've got eight thousand john sears of bandera and they're going to be the next best thing no not at all their earnings came out that they didn't have enough subscribers and attained and my portfolio just tanked right with it and so i'm sitting here in thailand crying on the phone to my mom mommy. I am quitting at at this point. I'm i'm telling her. I'm quitting trading. I'm never going to do it again in have lost some money and i can't do this and i'm just gonna. I'm like i'm just gonna live my life on the beach and stop right wasteland exactly on with my life year until my money runs out and then i'll go get another. Another job like that was my thought like how it is. Go get another job n._c. Psych but maybe if you stopped trading how would you get your money back and i was like man why you gotta be so smart on the beach and look at my life then i decided that was the biggest mistake stake but now like i learned all the mistakes that i had done to lead me to that point i had traded when the stock was at its highs and that's one of the biggest mistakes when you're getting eating in the highs. You have nothing but room to fall but i had traded then because i had basically through missing out i had done way too. Many any quantity like my quantity size was way too big. I had bought too many shares so my risk was super high. Even if it went down one dollar i was out like eight thousand dollars. I had eight thousand shares which is ridiculous just ridiculous but now that i've learned all those mistakes like i can teach other people so now i have formulas in different things to a manage my risk and risk management is one of the biggest things you can do to protect your portfolio so that you can make gains if your risk or small like when you lose and you lose small <unk> helps you because when you have gains than you can make your count go up so i don't wanna get too detailed but yeah that was one of my biggest losses losses <unk>. It was on one of my favorite days because atlantan festival was amazing but yeah you learn you. Keep moving exactly and i think that your story. I mean a perils. <hes> you know a lot of things like you're talking about stocks in particular but i still think that a lot of people are going to be able to relate to you know the falling down and getting back up and staying after it and figuring it out and making it work for you i mean nothing comes comes over night except for eight thousand dollars in losses but exactly like it takes a long run to build these things things takes it takes time it takes following. It takes succeeding. It takes a lot of lessons and it sounds like you've really gone through the gamut of of all of it and now you are i on the i don't want to say we can say on top of it like you've learned a lot right and you are teaching others to follow in your footsteps which i think is amazing and we're gonna talk a little bit more about that in a few minutes but i want to ask you more about what has this afforded you like. What what does your life look like now that you are doing this trading full-time and i'm assuming that you're you're placed in dallas is just a home base from which you travel. Is that correct. Are you still traveling a lot. Yes i am so. I'm still traveling a lot this year. I'm traveling more domestic so i've been to the east coast west coast bag again like fifteen times. It feels like this year sure but <hes> the next so after i did my we roam stanton traveled around within. I came back home and my grandmother actually passed away. I was really glad that i was able to just come back and spend time with her and that like i think it's those moments where you have flexibility and i didn't have to ask anybody for permission so my grandmother needs me. I don't have to ask permission to be with her. Whereas back in the day i would have to ask my boss for vacation time and and then he had the ability to say no which he did several times as assistant principal. I ask three times where medication and was denied so like now. I'm like if somebody were to deny me vacation gatien time. I don't know what would a right relationship. Yeah exactly like you know what that's my the last day by accurate but i think now that freedom peace the fact that i can make my own decisions. I can move. Who've i wanna move i can like. I have a friend that they were doing airbnb up in baltimore this year and i was just like oh you guys are there. I'm coming. I'll be there tomorrow so that trade him of over my schedule and then freedom over my money so investing is one of the ways that you can build wealth very very quickly and when you become good at it so now i've worked my way up so i used to be at three hundred dollars a day. Now i can make a thousand dollars a day and so like now that has afforded afforded me this freedom of wow like now. I have the money to be able to do a lot of things. I thought weren't <unk> like possible before so yes. The flight was a little bit more expensive but the experience in having that quality time with him like that's what i love like. Have you ever listened to the five leg or is it for love. Language book live languages so mine is quality time in acts of service but in order to do that. You got to be close to people and i i know people in dallas so my friends are all over so one of my friends she was going through a situation where she had left her job but she also was going through some health things things in california i went and spent three months or not three months three weeks with her just being in her space and that like that changed her whole world but the fact that i could do that and have that quality time and then even the acts of service was dislike. Let me sit on the couch and hug you and anything you need water. Really you know like that kind of stuff like being able to do that has brightened my life and this is what like trading and traveling has has afforded me and that <hes> is this going to this is the cliche part but that's the priceless part like bats the such the amazing amazing rewards that that you just can't compare with anything exactly exactly and i and i will tell you you you're asking me earlier like why do not. You didn't ask me this amnesty. I took it this way who why like. Why do you teach now and i think i teach now because i want to give people that same freedom like the fact that i was so stressed at work but i felt like i had to be there because it's an income and i need benefits and insurance since i didn't see another way out now that i'm investing i see this. I just see the world differently like like the world is mike playground literally like i can travel here travel. There and i have the money and means to do it as well so now. My whole life in mindset has changed and i think i wanna give that opportunity to more people gas yes. I love that and i can relate to that. That is the reason that we are here. That is the reason i am here. That's the reason i'm doing all of this is because that is exactly how it started for me is like i had had all of these years of travel under my belt i had experienced all these things and all and then all these people are asking me you know like well. How do i do that. Oh well let me show you and then you can do it too and that was the whole i mean. That's the whole premise of everything that i'm doing is to enable all that experience for other people nothing like it you can't i mean yeah like someone can can <hes> <hes> follow me and watch me go and like yeah. That's great but when you do it it's totally different. It changes your entire world. When you have the experience when you taste the mango and sticky rice you know and when you're the one with the salt water in your face and yeah it's totally different so so yeah true and have you seen a lot of success with this teaching people. Are they getting it. I have an actually do you know the reason n._y. Teach now is because of the people that i was traveling with so on that we roam trim. I was so content with just trading by myself and traveling by myself like that back in my head like that was going to be my life for the next thirty years till retirement. I just didn't want any bosses. Tell them what to do. Yeah that was josh as long as i had that like life was great but as i was traveling the people that are traveling with kept asking me to go to kasey like hey terry. Can i take you to coffee. We we just want to know more about this investing thing and so i had enough people asked me to go to coffee and i don't even drink coffee looks like like that. I said you know what i would have compromised. I would have got some hot chocolate like we could appeal the but as i said you know what how about this we we have this co working space out. Just do a seminar for you guys. It was an assumed. I was like a i put some slides together. This is what trading is. I said. I'll all do a little workshop so we did the workshop and they loved it. They absolutely loved it but the cooler thing was. I liked it too. I back really lit up and i remember after the the workshop feeling so energized from being able to teach them this skill that i know <hes> and so i remember saying like still still was in this mindset that this was a one time saying like oh that was such a great experience may be in the future. I'll do it again sometime and the next month they were like not. We want you to do it again so that we were in vietnam and i said okay fine. I'll do it again and this time though it had his his mindset that okay. I taught them a little bit but i want them to be good at this so i'm gonna make it a little bit more difficult so that they can really you know. Leave me in trade so so now i'm teaching them about charts in ama- technical analysis trader so i'm teaching them how to read a charred wood or candlesticks and sell do that do do that workshop and then they asked me. Katie's is going to be a series and this time. I had some more people from the co working space so there was a guy in the co working space at what isn't even part of our mark crew and he was still like it's gonna be a series. How do i find out more about this man in love yeah and then lo and behold the whole i had been putting this on instagram so when i came home for my grandmother my friends were like we know you're going to do a session for us now. My god uh-huh yes just started growing like that organically and then when i did the session in dallas seventy one people came out i think in and mike five people my aunt uncle maybe my cousin out <unk> knows seventy. One people showed up and then people from i'm like just my friend base in different cities or like. How do we get this so i said okay. We'll find i'll do it. Online did a webinar. More people came so now it's becoming coming up thing and i still but you know what i still was a bit selfish but me and if i do this i will have time for myself to travel ms so i was still kind of like i'm. I'm not gonna make this a thing. I'm not going to make this thing but what i did. Is i said okay. How about this. I'm going to sell people that have online course and if somebody buys is it from me then i'll make the course i had no course at this but i said you know what i was gonna say i do and if nobody buys it then good for me i can go on travel with my out there but lo and behold i said it in two people bought the course. Oh my god i gotta gotta go make this deal. Wow no kidding up until now we have over four hundred thirty people in the course in this. It's been growing and growing and growing and people are loving the content. They're learning how to trade to have like have one student who she just her. Her sister passed away in so she had to adopt her nephews all hand when she first reached out to me she had just gotten hadn't her nephews and she was like terry. I need your help because i need to make more income to support my two new kids like it was just me by myself and now i have these kids to support so i need help bringing in more income for them until i started working with her and this just like last last fall also this is not even very long ago. I started working with her and recently she sent me this text message and she had made two thousand six hundred dollars in one day training terry. I can't believe into you like the messages like who eighty seven million exclamation points yeah. This is the most ever made in a day. Thank you so much for teaching me how to trade aide while then more than that it was now i can really take care of my family like this helps me like in this skill set. She has right so now she like. She doesn't lose the skillset she can just keep being better and better and making ashim has more money than now she can make more with trading and investing so this is like now. We have revolutionized what she can do with her family into that kind of stuff like that. You can't pay for that so now. I'm superindent being being a teacher. 'cause i want more people to be able to have experiences like that yeah because you can just about tangibly see the change in in their lives yeah yeah anyone's as to this is the difference between like she also had been thinking about real estate stayed investing so her she also had thought about all by house and i'll have a renter but what she told me as well as will win. I have a renter that only pays as me fifteen hundred a month at max because you know you only get rent once a month until you have a little bit of income but it's a once a month thing with stocks fox you take that same amount of money that you would put into buying a rental property and now you can actually make that money work for you but see it on a regular basis so you can see it it on a daily or weekly basis. You can get some of that return. You don't have to wait a month and just like she noticed she made two thousand six hundred dollars in a day gene and actually like she made that in like less than twenty minutes because it was a really fast trade in it was like i taught her how to make money in the stock market comes down and that morning it come down really fast associ- it was a great trade how <hes> but the but the point was she made that in a day whereas he would have had to wait a whole month to make her income in real estate investing it would have been less than what she made in trading so it just it's just really cool. It is really cool. Wow yeah my big question is. Who do you think just from where you stand and you have all these students in your course. What kind of person signs up for this course meaning. What do you need to have because to me. This paul sounds like i mean i'm not a numbers person. I don't know if it actually has more to do with number or strategy. You know like what kind of person is going to be good at this great question so i think there's three parts. I think it's someone who has curiosity can follow directions directions so has some disciplined yeah link. Those are the two biggest things so when i say curiosity a lot of the people who i teach have heard about investing before a four and they've always been kind of interested in it but they just didn't know where to start yeah so they needed someone that could kind of walk them through the steps and then the second part is with discipline. I have a seven stetch trading plan so i literally tell you okay. These seven steps that i take before i do any trade trade so do this. I do this again. Do this or you know but it just needs. Somebody who can follow direction right trading is in emotional things so i will say like when you're trading your own money and putting your money on the line. It's gonna be emotional so you will have to work through your feelings a little bit and there are sometimes where you lose but the thing is your gains will be much bigger than your losses as long as you have a risk management plan which is part of my trading plan like we already building golden okay. We don't wanna lose more than one hundred dollars on this trade. This is how we do it. We're gonna put in a stop loss so that if it hits here we get out of the trade or also gonna do some calculations to make sure that we don't have too many shares like i was talking about before and then we're going to look at a chart to see wins the best time to get in and out so oh you're doing these steps that i'm teaching you and following the steps then you can see someone will and i can't promise anything so disclaimer. I'm not as a broker. This is disney teaching you all what i do to be successful but like someone who can follow directions and also has a curiosity and i i think one other thing i will say as someone who's willing to take initiative so i have some people that they love this idea. I can teach them but then they never take a trade <hes> um but it really works for people who have some initiative and i think that's in life in general like there are some people who will get lots of education but they never actually actually go do things so in trading. You're only gonna get good if you trade but i do give you a simulator so you can trade with fake money at i. I think that helps my students as well like mike okay. It's a simulator to bake money. Just try it yeah right. Just click the button. Click it off done but i will say that too. Good traders. Take initiative okay yeah. I guess this is where we share. The good news. Yes so terry is being very generous. It's an offering ten percent off of her course <hes> to you guys and that's just exclusive for this podcast so first of all thank you so much for <hes> for offering that discount amazing <hes> will you tell us a little bit about the corset self what is it called and what people can expect expect from it sure so it's called trade and travel since that was my like goal in life so it's called trade and travel and there are like the whole course is a v._i._p. Program and has seven classes in it and it takes you from beginner all the way to advanced so when you start off in beginner and you're doing intro to stock market then we're talking about risk management which i shared a lot with you guys today then we talk about reading charts and that's technical analysis analysis and charts actually help you to price your trade correctly so that you can make the most income on each trade then we go a little deeper into charts and so that's the first four classes in that package. Actually i let people if they can't afford all seven classes. I tell them just get the i four because you can actually trade into really good with just the first four four and then we go forward if they decide to keep keep learning. We talk about shorting. So how do you make money in the stock. Market goes down then we have another class class has some like really cool and man strategies like gaps and globex trading globex trading internationally mcadoo take advantage of when the market is closed and then we go into options so options is another asset class. Oh the first part is all about stocks but then we go into options trading which allows you to trade with less money but still make some pretty big gains so we go into a trade option so that's the whole v._i._p. Program but if you don't want to do the whole via p._s._a. Just start art with the first part which leads trade and travel in the rest is be at p. trade and travel but that's what covered in the course and then in terms of price. I will tell you guys like when when i was taking classes at pay twenty thousand dollars per class for investing knowledge and there's a lot of programs that are that are charging that much even if you go to like a a three day seminar and they talk about real estate you know have you have you seen all those advertisements like come to this three day seminar and they'd i bring you in and do it three venar and then you have to pay like twenty thousand forty thousand dollars guys that is not my class. I did you all of liz information for like ninety percent less than that so so do know that the prices that are are put out like i've actually had some consultants. Tell me that my class is worth twenty thousand but i just don't want. I want people to have access to it so you're gonna see. The prices are a lot less than that and then we're going to give you. The extra ten percent off says well to make sure that you guys can take advantage so says the course yeah so what is the price. We just tell everybody what the normal prices and then what the ten percent off makes except for the yeah yeah yeah. I think that's good so the v._i._p. Program is five thousand and then ten percent off of that is four thousand five hundred and then if you are just starting out like i was saying. I think the training travel program is good. Get the first four classes. You can always upgrade later. Just pay the difference france but the first four classes is two thousand and so for us. We're actually doing doing ten percent off of that so you'll have it for seventeen ninety seven. I believe uh-huh so yeah yeah more than ninety percent off. The value is co yeah. Thank you so much for that and then everybody can find that at travel investing in one one dot com that link will take you straight there if you're interested in <hes> learning from terry and taking her course both of those are. I travel investing one o. one dot com. I'll also put the notes on the show notes page for you but yeah this is. This is super interesting. I i can see <hes> just from looking at the at the page of the course that people are loving it and and it's i mean listening to you. It's making a difference in people's lives lives and obviously has trading has completely changed your life. What is your next big trip. I want to go to south africa. I really we do have been yet so my family. My dad is in nigeria so i can't go to africa in that. Stop in nigeria. I my goal is to go say stay high on family. Go spend a month or two in south. Africa nets my next picture. When do you hope to do that like next month like they like being like a workshop in atlanta that i'm going to be a part of and then <hes> thin kahn which is a finance finance conferences in september so i keep getting kind of booked up but i'm like sometime this year it will happen. I will be in south africa so we can do another podcast from southern awesome. That's good. Have you been to africa before. I have been to nigeria. They were so let's like families but haven't been too many other places in africa so i'd i'd like to go back. You know africa is one place. I've never been i never ever really not anywhere on the continent. Nope isn't that crazy only that there's some places like zanzibar sandbar here a lot about here about south africa and a lot of things and namibia to yeah it is it's really big. It's got a lot to see i. I will make it there eventually but it's kind of like i don't know it's just beyond the horizon land for me. Just happened yet no but good for you for your face. You're the expert we gotta go and we need to plan a trip together. Oh what i totally forgot to mention that by the way we're gonna give my course for free to anybody who takes the ten percent off deal so i totally forgot to mention that but <hes> haven't talked about my course in a while but it is still out there the budget minded traveler blueprint that will teach you everything you need to know about how to travel you best of both worlds you get trade and travel in one so there's there's that plug. I totally forgot about that but you. You're going to get a code to get the to get my course for free if you if you get terry's and yeah we should plan to meet up somewhere in the world that'd be maybe for the maybe further lantern festival in thailand one of these years. Yes yes and that way that way. I can have like a new new memory. I now that ending. It'll be like discreet the wonderful let's hope for that. I would like that tune and real quick before we end at wanted to say. I know one of the questions you he asked was about. Do you need to know a lot of numbers to do this in apologize. I don't think i answered that very well but i do want to let people know it's not about about numbers. It's more about being able to negotiate so if you've ever been to a market around the world like in nigeria one of the things i do is i go to like the clock market and end. There's like the seller and then me. I am the buyer but i never pay full price like we're always negotiating on the price of this cloth and then like just everywhere around the world. You have markets like the fish market the food market but there's always gonna <unk> rarely. Do you pay full price at a market. That's the same thing that's happening in the stock market. There's buyers and sellers and you just negotiating on the price of the stock so if you're someone who like you're able to negotiate negotiate and you understand buyers sellers than you can understand this. It's not it's not about numbers more so than just about being able to negotiate understand buyers and zeller's okay. That's a good tip. It doesn't not to scare people off who maybe don't have what they would consider experience in the subject correct yeah kind of like so i just had benny. I don't know if you met benny at crafting commerce but he is a he speaks like a whole bunch of languages ages and i just had him on the show in his approach was so different it was like basically get rid of all of your preconceived notions about language edge and just go there and do it just go and like do the things speak the words tarzana until you can figure it out and i love to don't don't think that you can't because you don't have the gift or whatever you know that was kind of his big thing. I loved that and i feel like it's similar in this. It's like it's more of a mindset like if you want to do it and you can follow directions in this case then maybe you can figure it out. It's still intimidating to me but you know what so do some foreign languages so that's okay right. Yeah and practice makes perfect so you're good practice. Practice makes progress aggressive. Nothing else yup true all right well terry <hes> so where can people follow you on instagram where where can they you find you if they wanna if they wanna follow you yes. Instagram would be perfect. It's at i'm an investor esther. Esther looks like imani money investors investors so people call me money all the time and i'd take it money. Let's it's. I'm an investor. I'm an investor okay and then travel investing one one dot com for your course so <hes> thank you so much for your time ah and your energy and just bringing this idea to the table because it's just like i said something we've talked about before and i'm just i'm so impressed and congratulations again with your success and best of luck on your travels be safe and to connect again on some other side of the world somewhere someday. Thank you so much jackie. This has been a great. This has been wonderful great. We'll talk soon all right super interesting right. I'm so impressed with terry who has figured out how to make herself location independent and travel wherever i she wants to while earning such income i know that business isn't my main focus here on this show but i also know because you guys tell me in emails and messages that a lot of us struggle it just how to make money on the road and i know you wanna travel so badly so perhaps this is the right answer for some of you out there. You'll never know unless you try right so so thanks again to terry for giving us her time and sharing her story today <hes> remember you can go to travel investing one o. One dot com if you wanna grab that offer and sign up for courses.

I've wanted to bring this up I wanted to bring this up when it first happened when it first occurred in all of that stuff with the thing is the thing is this It definitely definitely slipped my mind a slip on mind because. Their lot of things that's taken place. There's a lot of things that's happening. That's for surely surely surely surely as keeping me up at night, it's definitely keeping me up at night. This was in one. This isn't one of the things that keep me up at night. This wasn't even close to being wanted to things that keep me up at night. So let me just go out there right now like a sap. Soon as possible as soon as possible this definitely isn't a wasn't one of the things that keep me up at night if the other things that keep me up at night. In this slipped my mind. But idead, write it down I. wrote it down like. I wrote it down I wrote it down at the time because I knew it was going to slip my mind. Is a lot of my mind. Is a lots accumulated night. I don't know where to begin. To start when I will. And I of. Is this is sort of recent to not the article, but the stuff behind article that Kinda maybe write this down or something that I wanted to tell something I wanted to talk about something that is Caught my attention because I like reading I read a lot reading is fundamental. I can tell you I can tell you all the things that I read. I can tell you two books that I've read. I can take a book that I re- I can tell you to magazines I continue to newspapers. I can tell you just about everything might I is. Am I an optimized on to read to gain announced see how can I get my intuition? A gut feelings, how can I best prepare them for the task at hand if I don't provide them with the necessary resources or materials so by me reading and reading and reading and reading, taking all his abundance of information inside. On I'm just feeding intuition I'm just feeding intuition and just helping intuition gut feeling out, give him all information they need. So they can make the best decision possible. So they can make the best decision. Possible. I was reading this article. A grabbed my attention. And I am just like you. I'm definitely just like you. I'm a human I am just one human. Not a robot. Not A ROBOT Definitely not a robot. I'm just one human like you. But I do I do put on. Pants both ways at the same time to I jump in my pants were both legs at the same time. Trust me is worth it. You try if you do it practice. Free advice we don't quote me on it free advice, but don't quote me on. This article it drew me in not necessarily like moths to a flame. Any wasn't clicked bait. I wanted to know what will. No I didn't want to percentile or percentage I felt the because. Definitely, wasn't the three and I definitely was not the six percent ninety. Zero. that. This article was definitely something that that piqued my interest because recent leave recently recently recently, you go back and check historic documents you can go back and check the historical its recently I highlighted. That the four thinkers. Told me or four thinkers gave me enough information that I could possibly use a need to make decisions or to make a decision on something that was extremely important but they gave me to they gave me this information. Year year or years ago it wasn't until. Yeah. It wasn't until. Twenty? Twenty I had to. Take account of that information in now utilize that information and four thinkers who right in this isn't me? Polishing the forward thinkers There's a there's another Here's another show for that had been there done that this isn't this. So this isn't this news. You don't know what's happening. You don't know what's going on. It's fine rigs. Though. Fred don't worry this. Isn't it non verbal communication peeps? Yeah. That's it. Exactly. I. See I didn't why don't work out and I don't exercise the put these big show me muscles up you know. Big Arms. Big Guns or whatever they call it. I workout and I do all of that stuff for health reasons because I don't want any I don't want to pre I don't want any pre conditions right I don't want that. I just want to be healthy I. Just WanNa be held the eat dried I wanNA exercise in be able to walk and not be out of breath or upstairs and not feel like him about the guy. You know just simple things in life that makes you want to smile just the simple things and see these four thinkers told me that I didn't necessarily. Have to be tied to a gym tied to a fitness center to be able to do all of these things that I want to do, and so they they gave me that information they let me know how to do all in all of that jazz here named Bob Blah and all that stuff. So when it came time for me to actually utilize this information that they giving me, it was it was it was fine I use it, right? Yeah. And another thing another thing. I'm I'm. I'm done with the forward thinkers part I'm done with that. If you afford thinker and if you're consuming, you're listening I suggest you go back and review historical documents because this is where the fourth thinker. Love. Ends or say worried this is just where I continue on his keeping moving into what I have to do. I have to do and see this article. It was definitely top of mine. It was definitely top of mind Afars with the title drew me in because I just just took the forward thinkers advice to quit the gym to quit the fitness center because I can do all of those things I can do all of those things on my own. In My. In my own home were putting on workout depending on what I need to get done. I don't necessarily need to be tied to a fitness in a tied to Jim because I'm not exercising for those a reasons not exercising from vanity type reasons just the have. Walsall's look real big in not be able to do like simple basic things like wash my back. Without a back washer. Jack and put my hand behind my back. Some people can't do that. Some people can't do that. Still A no judge zone. Nudging, it's an observation. It's an observation. See this article another thing about this arc and another thing about this I thought I knew all of the personnel I thought I knew the people inside of the fitness in inside the gym. But I I didn't there's a whole different their whole different people inside I thought I knew everyone I thought a new, all the personalities new all of the possibilities or all of the things that could possibly happen within fitness center. But obviously, that was wrong had no clue because they're more things that I never thought. I didn't think that was plausible in. Yes. Plausible. And that's what is article was just like, oh It has not me in happy mode or happy dead. That's me driving g rod in looking straight and see. Me Driving, G and looking straight and seeing a fork in a row. As like me and why can it just been a body? Why can it just been a? A Bonnie because the inner jaws Bonnie as he keeps going and going and going and thank. Yeah, not a bunny rabbit or bugs bunny because I don't like rabbits don't like animals. So Peter. Don't come for me please. Unless will no don't come from me please just don't not not not today not this time. We will. Arrange it see I don't do rain checks, pita our rain check you about that. Yeah. Would come came to the. Road or the energizer. So. It's like, ooh. I thought I knew all of the people I thought I knew all already piece inside of the fitness center. But no I didn't have any clue. I didn't know about the three percent and I didn't know about six percent. Or two three to six well. There's something called a core gasm. Yes. You heard it. Right. It's a word is probably made up. Or. If not a word. It's not made up. Or it's. A word that's been made up I don't know some comic some combination of its combination it's combination of. Adult, no know. Hopefully. I'm quoting Dr who right on on a on a name, the title at the game if not, it is what it is. It's manny being manny instill a no judge zone. Exactly. So basically a three percent of women who work out in fitness center. Having Gazza working out. Being in six percent of men say. I'm not hard at three percent and I'm definitely not a part of the six percent. So working out, there's that percentage of people that has had that experience in gym. Now. See if I would have some kind of experience like that in a gym in a fitness center of I was working out. That just wouldn't be good that wouldn't be good for anyone because me working out doing what to do with my sounds my music in and mijas bouncing the weights like, ooh and just. In, if I were in that six percentage. Who Tell me? Who would tell me? Seriously who would tell me that? Sounds going on as something is happening. Who's telling you what you haven't? Well well, well, where will Well the thing that the thing is I got a music on I'm doing what to do. I'm saying dancing I am end zone. So when I am in zone I am super yes. duper. Yes. DUPER duper focus meaning. I. Am just concentrating on the next repetition I am concentrating on. The next bit of energy that I need to make dissuade, go up or down or to make this ligament pop. So I am I am so focused on debt extremely focus on what I need to do to complete my work out. or repetition or set. It I. I wouldn't notice if my I would notice if I was standing at attention, I would notice if I was ready to pacify works I would notice if Legislators I wouldn't have a clue whatsoever if I was getting to the point of it was even possible because before you even reached the point of A. Finance you actually have to get there. He actually have to take those steps to go ahead mountain take those steps to go up that mount if you're not taking those steps to go up that mound. Is No. Yes there is no see. This is still a family program. A probably should have seen a couple of times but I didn't say earmuffs a couple of times but I did get a little creative, not too creative. But just the little because I got news, we got news rigs we got lots and lots of news. And I'm looking out for the little guy. Seriously looking out for the little guy. He can't get hurt. He cannot get hurt. So. So this article was like. It was it was so many things. It was so many things. In one and especially with with the news, just being what it is about what's happening on the planet, the globe, the world and and being torn twenty thought I just need something new just need the little different different different in my life. You know how like the new any way when I saw this article I saw his head Lanham leg what I thought I knew. Our the people inside of the gym I thought I knew the serious people I thought I knew the talkers thought I knew the lurches I thought i. knew the people just walked around and pretended like they was working now only to just check you out you not tight. You know who they are. We not going to call them out. We not going to say named. Glancing Direction to get them no I know what you're doing. I know game don't think that I don't know what you don't. That's why I'm go in a turn of the direction go in a different role Oma, go into a different workout or if worst comes to worst, I'm going to report you because this isn't the time or place for that Zimmer Down Zimmer Dow. So, I. Thought that I knew all of the people that reside it inside or they went to work out they went to. The fitness center to to do. All of the things like. That for the for the right reasons or even the vanity reasons because it's still a no judge zone if you want to do all this stuff so you WanNa. Look good and look good. To each his arm to each his arm that's five. I thought I knew everything. Inside of the fitness center, that is because I know I know everything. Well. I'm not gonNA say this hill. Is Definitely, not a W. I'm just GONNA I'm just GonNa, save an incomplete. It's an I. It's definitely an eye. Boiled.

Interview with Legalman: It's All BS!

The Propaganda Report

Interview with Legalman: It's All BS!

"Welcome to the propaganda report. This is Monica Perez on Brad Vehicle. We have a very special guest today he is America's most trusted lawyer and that could. Make him the first among one, but we'll leave that alone for now he goes by legal man and has the must listen podcast called the crash I love his show. It's only twenty minutes episodes so I really like that. It's short it's not exactly sweet but somehow legal man's combination of legal knowledge experience, dark humor self righteous anger and well-placed profanity just cracks me up every time. So without any further ado I you illegal man welcome we'll thank you. Welcome. Thank you for having me it is it. Was really a pleasure for me to discover your show because somehow you take the stuff that really drives us all crazy and his ruining everything for everyone and it makes me laugh and it's mostly because you're just pissed off all the time but you're so articulate about it and you we've your great expertise in with a an artful use of vulgarity and I just don't know why my fancy but I've talked about your show a few times on my show and I just felt like I really wanted to. Ask. You questions and find out where you came from and all that stuff and. Basically you turned assigned to something, we have a show called the propaganda report and we had never heard of the your that propagandist you highlighted on your blog who really what's his name? Verb Yeah. So basically I bought basically a book on your station of getting into that guy. So we've got lots to talk about we only an hour to talk about it. So let's dig in. But I, legal manage just wanted to ask you. Just a little bit about your background and kind of why what you've been doing all this time to build up your I mean obviously our lawyer but like your your knowledge is so bright and deep what's your kind of background and experience what he folks on? Well, you know. I did I wish we have practice for for. Thirty years graduated blow more than thirty years ago and. I got out I went first I clerked at some of these big sort of national firms with hundreds and hundreds of lawyers them. During the summer and then I took a job at a big farm with hundreds and hundreds of lawyers and I cussed saw the way the system worked there and it was pretty despicable and so I I laughed after about three and a half years. And I've really I would have been booted a lot earlier except had a couple of partners that really liked me. But I was troublemaker at the place and I just I'm kind of I'm just kind of a troublemaker wherever I go. If people don't do the right thing I, just I tend to call it out and so I left and I went and worked at the PD's office being a public defender because I wanted to take to try some cases and get in the courtroom her I wouldn't have pets you for that. Yeah. Well, you know a prosecutor just didn't sound very good to me but that. You even back then. Because public defender feels like Oh, you're defending guilty people. But if you're say -tarian bent you realize that so much of the law and even the process is Like ninety eight percent of all cases of all convictions are from plea bargains. Not, process. They people out and you know the reality is for me Oma lawyer you're either entitled to a defense or you're not I mean, the state is incredibly powerful and so I've always been a hard core libertarian, my whole life and. You know I was raised in a family with my father was really basically a communist and. And so it was a strange deal and. He's still is very much a hard core liberal even today he doesn't talk about it much but. What I grew up in and we argued all the time I mean all the time that was just kind of a family pastime not like argued, angrily leach other just at argued a lot and so. I became quite adept at it, and then when I became a public defender, I saw how really truly crooked that system was I couldn't take it very long I stay about a year and a half to try a bunch of cases that I went and I worked. With some friends of mine from law school started a personal injury firm and I went there and that that was actually pretty interesting and helpful to again sort of represent serve individuals and people always down kind of a quote ambulance chasers but people understand those are the people who represent the individuals. These people slit their own throats when they represent insurance companies then they realize Oh, my God now I'm hurt now I need something and well I have a question about that. As we go through all the damages that people say could happen if you don't wear a mask or if you write something scary online or provocative online and I mean, I told you, I went to law school but I'm not a practicing lawyer I really don't know I'm just trying to remember from the really nebulous vs I learned in school that seemed to get further from the truth. But as I look at all these cases, I can almost always say like when they said, well, you can't cry fire in a crowded theatre. My answer is actually I think you can as long. As you are responsible you are at this system is set up to hold you responsible for actual damages, and that's a big deterrent and I would say the same thing about online speech if you can prove actual damages, which is all tort law, I think that's the answer to the regulatory state. I might be a little on this and they didn't teach me libertarianism and law school but am I right about like I feel like that is the one defense we have against having to have the big apparatus of the of bureaucracy and regulations sure talking about the temp to regulate online speech. Yes. Yes. He mainly about speech that they say we have to regulate it because you could hurt people and I say. That, you don't have to regulate it. That's what that's what being held responsible for actual damages comes from. Is Our system for that, and for me, this would be a good example what I call the difference between strategy logistics in that is yeah I agree in theory that all works great logistically as a practical matter trying to get damages against somebody basically impossible because you'd have to hire a lawyer and he'd have to take it on contingency and. You know the people have to have to be a recoverable the fact I get a judgment collecting it but you and I are on the same page I still don't think it should be regulated like they do. That's preposterous. Because as we both know a regulation for speech like that to say to claim that it's there to actually protect people from. Having, the reputation destroyed. That's ludicrous there. The entire purpose of that kind of thing is to make sure that they can destroy the reputations of the people they want to and the people who they don't want to have. The reputation destroyed They don't really have any way to come back you know. They don't. So if you're you podcast and you don't seem to hold back on your skepticism about. This, being a pandemic because there aren't any bodies anywhere and I wonder myself like I fear a little bit because they pick and choose who they go after with this kind of stuff. Sure. They go after a person and say you you were you told people it wasn't real and then they didn't wear masks and they got sick and we're going to see you into oblivion because of that. Well I, mean there's no defense if the system itself decide to do that if an individual who's unsupported by the system attempts to do that, they'll go nowhere if the system itself is supporting somebody with some Phony Baloney lawsuit. And they push it through the courts and everything else. Well, you know you MC may get tagged I don't know I. Don't personally think if the blame me they put me in front of a jury that at least I would be entitled to jury. I feel pretty comfortable in front of a jury that that's not going to happen but there is no defense against a rigged system, but they decide to go after you and so I don't worry about those kinds of because in fact, there's no defense. Make something up if they want to. If it were that if it if it got to that point, they do make stuff up or they can off you fact matter. Don't fund. Kiddie. Porn on my machine before they'll do address the whistle blower the whistle there was a whistle blower donald factly Vin who was who did they did find he blew the whistle on Brennan and like the second underwear bomber and Yemen and he went to jail for Kiddie porn on his computer FBI agent. He's got some. That's what I'm saying this is the deal I tell people all the time. Look you know you do you do it in a way that's rational and that's reasonable and if they decide to go after the doesn't matter if you've done it, you've done nothing wrong they'll. Just, invent something, right You know what? What I say online I don't tell people that there's no danger. I said the dangerous absurdly overblown and whatever danger there is even if there was fifty million people. Government, still doesn't have any right to do what it's doing so. That basically has a question for you I. There was a story a few days ago about the first wave of cove nineteen workplace lawsuits that have arrived workers are employees are filing lawsuits claiming that they contacted the corona virus as a result of their employer's negligence and. There's a debate that's emerging about whether or not. Congress should grant businesses liability protections. Epidemic. Well I mean again, it's preposterous. One those types lawsuits to the extent there even out there just they're just just a shakedown I mean the the company. If it's a large company I asked to make a business decision just like you do if you're a linebacker and you gotTA. You GotTa make this decision I there are they going to settle a case like that? Who knows I mean? They can't even isolate the virus how are you ever going Nass cause and effect on this kind of thing in Israel trial? GonNa Happen. That's the thing is that I remember had a friend who got a speeding ticket and he said it was a speed trap and he went to court and he proved that they had done a study of the area and the speed limit was supposed to be set higher than it was. So they set it low he was speeding and he got away with it because it wasn't like the correct law and I wondered if that if there are real standards this I mean I can't imagine this is within your experience, but you seem to know like everything. So I'm asking you is there a sister is their general rule where you have to? Kind of present with especially with this kind of policy, which is outside the realm of what anybody libertarian think was in the purview of government but it is what government says, they have the rights regularly don't they kind of have to come up with evidence and basically a cost benefit analysis especially for health policy maybe it's not a technical cost benefit analysis. Surely, they have to make some evidence based decisions and I don't see that here and I don't know how they're getting away with that. Maybe that's not a real thing. You are you saying, are you asking whether or not? Congress has to have some kind of objective findings in order to? Pass, the law you. I don't think I'm not talking about the the congressional laws although I'd be fine with that. You know they just shut down. So you're talking to see like in the cities they're saying you can't you have to wear a mask or they're they're putting people in jail. I have a friend who might be going to jail for having had a party at his Irish pub on on Saint Patrick's Day and I just feel like whatever law was that they used a regulation glass minute regulation they used against him. Don't they have to justify that some had not don't they have to, but isn't it customary for them to justify that? So you're saying that you get charged with a crime and then you want to go in and use the defense that the law itself is in effect not valid because they didn't junk through the proper hoops and therefore it has no basis I guess that it's an arbitrary health regulation that you can't pippen jail for if it's not just he says there something there you know we'll. Let me they haven't done anything and and the of course, the idea that they have to do anything, it's just an illusion they don't have to do anyway they can do whatever they can get away with and in a situation like this it's not significantly different than whenever there's a national problem I remember back in two thousand and eight with doll, the mortgage that melted down and they had that electronic merged system they'd set up, and of course, every one of those mortgages when they had the titles, the titles were not properly filed because titles in this title. Lawn states requires this very specific paper document trail and they didn't have it and also an effect all. Those mortgages they were trading around through more mergers. They really had no right whatsoever foreclose on any of them and it's similar to this kind of thing where you don't really have a basis for any of this but they just start saying and then that's probably one of the reasons why the Federal Government Might WanNa step. It's the same reason. They have these friendly suits by attorney general's, which is how they washed out two, thousand, eight, they brought these these attorney generals brought suits on behalf of all these people to supposedly protect all it really was was a way to make sure that all these murders titles that you you report out if you tried to fight it. He added guaranteed winner for you because they couldn't possibly prove. They had a right to four closed because they were in violation of the statutes and those same kind of thing here. Yeah. That's what I was thinking is that there has to be some at least for show kind of recourse and how do they get around that and and yes, a show. That they could control yet that one hundred percent, it's all it is. It's always a show if it's if it's any kind of bigger kind of lawsuit, the Attorney General's always jump in and just make sure they clean it all up. That's all happened I sat and they'll do the same thing here. So when you look at. I mean I hear how cynical you are about government when I listened to your show and. You I'm an Arco Capitalist I actually moving towards address at thinking that there should be agrarian in barter and in my world I want to buy land somewhere in the middle of nowhere. That's where I think we are right now and I went from zero to sixty just during the corona times I started out by reading Ted Kaczynski's just like coincidence he put he has a new book. That I don't know if you've ever read his manifesto. Two years ago. Yeah. So I had never read it and I read it just just as this thing was beginning and he is like all started cultural revolution I saw every every state is a slave state is how I kind of shorthand and and then this chronic times thing came looking around I'm like, wow, they just snap their fingers told everybody to stay home at any moment they could withdraw access to food I mean we are absolutely completely dependent on them and I can be a libertarian all I want and defend the bill of rights, but the fact is I have no actual independence or liberty if I don't have any actual autonomy. So that's where I've gone and I've never heard. You talk about kind of what your your next step thought as about how far we've fallen in such a short amount of time, and if it has changed your idea of what the kind of hope as are the future looks like, yeah, I get this a lot is actually on my twitter thing in an impersonal because what I tell people's very depressing to them and said, they want hope. and. You know it's I have a variety of things. I actually did a show on why and it's having released yet I think in order to let it, bring it out next Monday but the it's it's very interesting question. It has several parts in my opinion one. Is, something we're about hope but we talking about a practical. Application for improving our lives well, either one. So there's one Harry Brown wrote how I found freedom in an unfree world, which is basically carving out you're. Carving out your space in the system as it is but I feel like there's no security in that whatsoever and Iraq and get into all the reasons why I think that. But now I feel I feel like the only answer is to have a backup plan at least have some arable land with a source of water on it. That's how I'm thinking hope is useless to me because it keeps people in the it feeling okay. About a situation that may just be binary they let you live like this or they don't, and if they don't, what are you, GonNa do. I well, you know for me, I think I probably have a slightly different view that doesn't provide a lot of comfort for a lot of people. finds base more in the fact that I'm not a big believer that this is the only life I have and I'm much more of a of yoga kind of view on life, and so this is more of a big giant movie now, as far as being able to operate within the system, I had a great system setup or Click Ajar. The general public and I can do my thing and I didn't really have to deal with a lot of different kinds of people and then they blew it up and saying the reality is it very clear to me? There are no rules. There are no longer any limits that anything you attempt to do inside the system is vulnerable they can cross you. He can go get Lanna just come out I mean the water rights shut them off I mean if they want you, it's always the same if they want to terminate your situation than they do, and so it's just a question of how much additional bumper room do you want and I've got buddies. Overseas their ex pats. I've got people who live in the states I've heard a whole bunch of different variety of things and for me personally I don't have a problem with the fact that it looks like we're in the endgame and the likelihood I'm going to be able to successfully defend myself and have some kind of wonderful kind of golden-age retirement of crap that's just out the window and I'm okay with that you know that's reality and. I don't think honestly that eat there's going to be anywhere to go that doesn't mean that if you go out in the middle of nowhere and do that stuff that you will by yourself significantly more time I think there's a good likelihood you will because everything's going to be done by priorities. It's just one I have no skills to I. don't really like being out in the middle of nowhere I just don't enjoy it and in order. To get away, I'd have to go and live in the middle of nowhere I don't want to. So I'd rather just die my little mud puddle than I would go out and try to scratch you out something I. Don't I don't have survival skills, I can't get Alaska built my house and ride around a snowmobile and not do any of that stuff I. Don't know how to do it. I'M NOT GONNA learn I don't care if I'm. If, I am going to go out I'm going to go out doing what I've already decided to do. I'm going to try to work within the system. I'm pretty damn good. If you give me rules, I can read them. That's what I was wondering that you haven't advantage i. That I think that if you're savvy about the system and you. Rules like you have a better chance because those are your skills. Alive in this situation and there's always exceptions is always for ring defied exceptions to everything and I know couple good buddies who were doctor. So this thing has to be. Okay well, doctors they can administer to right We have no idea what the rules are going to look like an and until they come out, I've just told the people I'm around you know I can't make a decision until I see what the actual terrain looks like. What is the legislation we? We still haven't seen anything yet. Now you have. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just thinking maybe they'll try to take a huge bite. Maybe they won't maybe the you know there's going to be a lot of pushback against some kind of mandatory vaccine but much less against. and. So there, there's so many different ways they could go I like to wait and see what we actually have. It's a rule of thumb I have, which is I don't solve problems I don't have yet because I have plenty problems to solve, and so I wait until I actually have the problem in front of me, and then I look at it. And that's where I am. At this point. What do you think maybe takes a a little. Bit of foresight or vision to think of the possibilities maybe not but is, do you have any feeling of? Who who runs the show and what their end game bigger picture might be like I just like technology and I think if they were trying for totalitarianism seventy, eighty, hundred years ago they did not have the tools to really make that stick but now, I feel like they do and they've plugged onto that system, and if there is some Kinda big cabal but I know you have the very big picture, which is this life doesn't matter as much as some people think it does but how about a? Big. Picture on the WHO's running things are where they headed on the practical matter where things are headed I. All I can know for sure is that they want more and more control and they want. US to have a much worse situation because they like to have a better situation and it's very clear they can never be satisfied. It won't matter if they have the entire world incomplete locked down they're still not gonNA be satisfied because they're very dysfunctional either people or something else who knows what they are. They could be anything I have a hard time believing that they're even human just because. They seem their motivations are so foreign to me and. It doesn't mean they might not just be sociopaths or psychopaths maybe a whole. Yeah. Whole Cabal of them because when you look at my my view of this thing, have you are you familiar with events Hawan from? Oh sure over the coincidence Yes. So we we're on terrestrial radio for eight and a half years I was on freight and half years my producer in Atlanta, which is where the CDC is and I would say everything I thought on that show I mean I never held back and when I started talking about events who a one I just got my walking papers out of nowhere and that was so I looked at at that and I so let's say this whole thing is is planned. That has it was that was the plan and ground slows the blueprints everything is unfolding when I think about the amount of. Of Pain and suffering and the lives that will be lost just from the cruelty of destroying everything that really billions of people probably. Are are much worse off that to me does seem. Superhuman. In. Hidden. In its coldness at it's like as if they think, they're a different form of life. So I had. It's like we look at cattle almost. Yeah. They're very it's similar to someone who's a very callous rancher who treats her animals poorly I think that's a pretty close analogy. I remember that there was a guy he was from Britain and I can't remember his damn name now but he died. he was in his late thirties is about two years ago died on a couch he was investigating. The. the pedophilia at some of these major US bases in Europe and he was in Poland at the time that he died and the reason I bring him up is because his his theory in the stuff he wrote about was that these the creatures that are at the top and I'm not saying, I'm endorsing her promoting because I haven't looked into it and another type of thing we can never know but. That, what they did, they actually used as an energy base fear fear and trauma was what they used. That's what they wanted. That's what they grew on and as crazy as that sounds you look at what they do, what happens in the world and That's Hard to say this now clause -able aid and hill him see they killed. They gave him a heart attack late thirties absolutely perfect help no problem. They killed him when he was looking into that stuff and so you know he was touching nerve and. It doesn't. It doesn't mean that it's right. It just means that you know when you take, they take people out who really touched nerve and get traction was this. Bates spires I who you're talking about, who's last name said against buyers maxwell expires thirty nine. That could have been him because he's a Brit and he had a German name and a His stuff was really fascinating and I just remember thinking because I'm always noticing these things these people at either die or or have these weird things happen to him, and then you look into it, it's like Oh. Okay. David, Chris. Crawl all navy. Co. Infectious. Myth. Yes. Okay. Yes. Okay. So I love that guy who's on my show earlier this year he in my opinion brought the most valuable insight into the the the germ theory and its wounds says, and he was diagnosed with cancer in June and he died in July. and. You know the if you look online, there's. There's a British guy. He's done a lot of interesting youtube videos. He's. He talks about all the information had had a lady that they could give you all sorts of different cancers and stuff back in the nineteen sixties in just a matter of two weeks and. So. You know you look these these different guys down in South American Central America the preposterous. That they get all this cancer and shot at totally impossible as statistical matter and the reason those kinds of things they resonate with may is that I use kind of reversed barometer if it's not really in the news and no one's even asking questions about it well, that tells me most of what I need to know. That's an interesting thing for John Kenyans to do right. Why is it? Why isn't John Dos will do insulting he's supposedly so practical and pragmatic. Why isn't he carries about something like that but no one ever is curious about these things it really matter. They're off limits. That's all they're just off limits and then people who I feel like people who go where are off limits I know these seem like trivial examples but I, think they were people who were not afraid of saying what they thought. Joan rivers and Anthony Bourdain I'm suspicious about. Them and but one thing about like the power at the top and that that level of. If they're like different kinds of. Whether different kinds of people are different kinds of entities. There's this whole layer of clearly i. it seems to me clearly just like US bureaucrats who who follow the orders who are happy to. Keep going. With Ski Yeah, they're just five -ticipant. They're happy to do it even though I mean. Sorrow says when he worked for the Nazis, he was fourteen and he was like, Oh this is fine. This whole conversation makes me think of this Willy Munson Berg. I discovered I know I've been studying this propaganda Brune as all these last well and all of these guys from the Committee on public information back in the eighteen hundreds Lynn and all these guys. But I had never heard of this Willy Munson Berg until Monica Cintas book double lives, spies, and writers the Secret Soviet War of ideas and it's fascinating to. Read about all of the covert networks of power setup just around the world that are run by these people that you never see or hear of what what can you what are your thoughts on these kind of propaganda networks I think they're probably so much more extensive than than the average person can ever imagine There it's just a specially now the electronics they have the ability collect so much an and so I think men on the ground so much like with Munson Burgers sort of mastery that guy was a genius you know do is incredibly brilliant in the way he approached things but he didn't have access to the kind of stuff they have now which people. Voluntarily, signing up to just put their life online and show everybody aren't even have to go about collecting the data just a matter of housing, the data and huge computers, and then, and then sorting the data. It's not even so much collecting anymore, and so I, think the game is probably changed over time especially with ai that is a huge game changer that most people. Just they do not understand what a game changer that is how much they see in read is controlled by just the ungodly ability. This kind of insane corona that could never have happened even with the world's most extensive kind of Munson Burger a set up in the past because it just was no ability to write the articles and disseminate information. Yeah that's what I. Think. About the technology being the difference maker here that you're just going to get that and one of the things about the kids now homeschooling, of course, we all want kids to home school. It's great. Great Great I. Think they're putting them in this pipe and it they're going to be sort of been curated by AI and you can't move to the next level until your. Auto teacher says, okay. You check the right boxes I think they're funneling the kids through. The is how the where this is going. Camping could very well have a certified ai have to pass the student because they don't want to allow what what they're calling. Now's pandemic pods, which is really just parents getting together with other parents and hiring teacher them teaching a just a small group of. Kids themselves, like they used to do it before public education but they WANNA stop that. So they've been trying to demonize that in the news as of the past couple of weeks and a I could be a way to do that. Here are your certified Ai has to prove till you go to the next round, you can't go to the next round bring in one of our teachers. It's I hear these guys are the I'd never heard of this. Would you call it something palm pandemic pot is with her I hadn't. Heard But whenever I hear anything like this, I, see these things in the news I hear these things they just cracked me up because they're just they're so preposterous on their face I always picture how brainwashed a human being has to be to hear something like this and think in any way this is going to be legitimate that somebody from government is going to show your house and is there to actually help you. It's just mind bending to me. It is yeah and I think that that's like brain control brainwashing and action it's verts all logic and people like yeah. Okay. Okay. Completely. Understand psychology so well. And they keep that from us but I've gotten. Where when I see them with the mask mandates and like today they came out with lemons, limes and oranges are tainted and I'm thinking what? Yes last week was onions and that's just like hey lemons. Have Salmonella on. Mac feel like they're tried. They might be trying to hurt us. Wow I mean, there's there's just there's no limit to what people believe it's become abundantly clear I have to blow your mind with one statistic this completely irrelevant it's just WanNa. Make you laugh. So and you're the only person I know who would actually laugh at something like this So. There is a study done by the Journal of. Champa the American Medical Association Journal did a study published a study from April in New York City where they examined a bunch of groups of people and one of the groups of people they looked at where people over sixty five diagnosed with covert and they had people who went on fence laters and people who did not go on ventilators. So the people who did not go on ventilators, their mortality rate was twenty six percent. The people over sixty five who did go on ventilators their mortality rate was ninety, seven point two percent. Ninety seven points. So basically, if you're in the group that goes on the ventilator, you're definitely going to die. So why put anyone on a ventilator? Very serious cases though see they. But there are definitely going to die on the vents if you can figure out who's going to die in his not going to die to that level of refinement then just killing. Thirty nine thousand dollars for providing. Comments like, Oh, I think we need to put you on event I. Immediately think of that Monty python seeing with the brain dead and. Actually I'm feeling better. Soon. And the the thing about that one is that two of my very close friends one guy I've known for forty five years and he's MD in one of my friends I've known for twenty five years. He's an MD and the reality is they both said? What's happening here is not something that requires a vet. These people are having embolisms and when you put Saunders evident embolism on event, you kill them and. That's that's the problem is putting them on the event was what was killing them because since nobody's allowed to speak honestly about what this might even be you just have to follow the script that this cove it and then you look down through your reimbursable cpt code and you see what quote breast practices are and the CDC releases new crap. Every single day and all they do is just try to run through the thing in this Organiz fashion to collect the maximum amount of money and while they have the wrong idea that this is a virus that does XYZ we'll happens if that's all not true. That's what I'm. That's not true. Then you're gonNA, kill him on that I think all the all the deaths are from policy, and then then you see that they're the handing out liability protection left to right even over and above the fact that they're already protected for doing anything. That's Alyce who God? Malpractice was was occurring there. You know you have this weird anomaly that occurred in New York City the same exact place where they had nine one one, you have this oddity that's not been reproduced anywhere else and that now nobody's allowed to go investigate Cuomo. Let Allow Right Geisha. What went on. We'll of course, can't allow an independent investigation what went on because what went on was a bunch of crooked and they killed a bunch of people and that's the way it is, and so of course. You can't go investigate it but whatever it was that happened we don't know what happened to nobody knows what happened. You weren't allowed the hospitals all happened just a few hospitals in these nursing homes of course what they do they don't allow anybody to go in the nursing home. You still can't go in and check on people have no idea what's going on with their health they literally they could be injecting people. There's no way to know what's going on you just trust and I've told people before. For private entity shutdown access to a hospital or a nursing home didn't allow people in and they started having fantastically distorted population death statistically. There'd be a criminal investigation they'd be sued, but the government does it shuts them all down. These same thing happens and people run around virtue signaling about how how what a fantastic job they did and all lives they saved. It's it's always upside down I saw a little bit of the trump show yesterday I hadn't watched that thing in Mancino hadn't been while, but he's out there. He's literally throwing out numbers like well, they're doing a fantastic job doing a wonderful job if a, we hadn't shut this down, I hadn't closed down, we have a million and a half two million deaths. These are just made up numbers. Why don't you just say twenty million deaths we have no information at all to prove that they saved a million and a half lives two million lives even one life there's no evidence reba one life. Yeah, and yet they act as though the all this stuff is saving all these lives because again, nothing has to connect up in any way to reality they just have to say it. That's all they have to do is just say it. Does to they entrapped someone who really have low Iq into you'll make a bomb or something that the FBI made and brought to them then arrested after giving to them but the ventilator stuff while this was going on, all these people were dying at a higher rate which we pointed out really pretty early on because of the experience that I. With? Yeah and he knew the vents he was like don't put on advance. So those are they tell you when They say this person probably not gonNA come off. That's the talk you get when someone goes on event and all those dying is going on yet. The media is saying we don't have enough fence. We don't have enough innovators invoked the defense production act and make more ventilators, and now trump is promoting how we have more ventilators than everybody in the world. They weren't you thousand, we can kill them at a faster rate. You're right. It's not ever seen numbers like this. Could do it. Soon does seem a little Hitler as whatever. Also. Silly because it's all totally disconnected from reality. Nobody's even there hasn't even been any discussion about whether or not this abaya weapon that we created many multiple bio weapons that have been released. It's not even something you're allowed to investigate neither sides talking about it. Just. All of the information flows to government. All of the narratives are tightly controlled and that's to me. It's always the simplest answer is that okay? Well, they're not even asking the right questions. That's the key to me is not whether or not you get straight answers because you're never gonNA get straight answers out a government or anybody else the question is, are they even asking questions that could get an answer that could be damaging? It was so telling that an eight and a half years of me saying that I thought Boston Marathon. Bombing was an inside job. I knew were m h three, seventy was I mean I would like layout details Miriam Carey has Obama's baby like I was saying stuff that was great. You know it wasn't crazy I was like offering evidence, but the thing that got them to say, we're taking your off the air. He just happened to be when I started talking about this stuff and when you go and listen absolutely, no one is asking the real questions but here's the thing that I think. Is just I can't get away from I feel like. If you look at like my dad, probably your dad while I don't know about your dad. My Dad was skeptical. He fought in World War Two and he came back and he had this book backdoor to war and he were read it was about FDR leading Pearl Harbor happened and I feel like in the that was in the fifties. Maybe it's a romantic fantasy, but I just feel like in the fifties there were still there was harder to. Fool all of the people all of the time for sure. For sure? It's because of that. We've got this problem is that people are just so They editor of trusting or stupider happened can't be stupid but. You know it was. Just so much. Lack of critical analysis and. That thought you have to. wrottesley underestimate the the damage that television does I really think they do and now the smartphones even more so. Just sitting in front of a TV, you really are hypnotized and you know that I sort of generation kind of grew up with TV is really come. My generation may be a little before in some in the fifties kind of thing but there wasn't a huge amount on even I was a kid. There's really only three channels in a UHF and you watched a little but you didn't just sit there and watch tv all day I was outside all day and I watched three channels it. What's man? It's strain and screen. At the same screen. Yeah, and there's clearly a a large portion of the population is simply incapable of defending themselves against that brainwashing now because it's very similar to me to why people get people all the time. Well, how come some people can see some people can't see the scams like. I can't answer it outside of the fact that I don't see any connection between education any kind of financial situation race age gender nothing. There's people from all over can see, and then there's a huge number of people who can't say and. Even when you tell them directly, they can't put the pieces together and I think the TV is very similar in that. It just has a massive effect on a huge portion of population, and then on a personal population, it affects them but. They're able to overcome it if they care to and. It's just there it is. I mean the the population is so fantastically brainwash now, but you know the other part of that is that. Yes. And there were public figures like in the thirties McFadden. All sorts of people spoke out you know they count him did they not and they kill them, and at least there were people in public positions who actually spoke truth and they called out the people and yeah, they paid a price for it. There's no doubt about it but. You don't even have anything remotely like that today nobody is out there as a public figure certainly at a high level that speaking any truth at all. I I don't like Jeff sessions policies at all. He's just a neo con I guess whatever. But I thought he was kind of like had the courage because he's he has that he had confidence in his intelligence and experience I suspected that they kind of pulled him into the. And then dirty them up and threw him out because he would have been difficult in the Senate. Things not most things but anyway. Go. But there's something about the TV I wanted to comment which is. And I got this from Kaczynski's thing is most recent thing which was really just the whole thing. that. That TV and PROZAC, and all this kind of stuff is is a function of a very unhealthy kind of level of stress. On autonomous like over and kind of thing, and I can see that in that this so I used to be an investment banker and I would just. If I even if I got into the morning I would just drink I just had to let go and then I, was a mom and I was reading tolstoy my spare time, and now I'm doing this and I'm like literally doing both on like just why not Tulsa I'm just watching TV and drinking and just trying to turn off because I do all day. Now is follow the news, which is exhausting emotionally mentally and I feel like that to to get people to just have to be weekend warriors or let loose at night like the whole structure of the system has to kind of be like that because you wouldn't. You Do Kinda get hungry for a little activity, a little mental activity, a little physical activity. That's why feel like the protests were just all they had to do is lock everybody up for ten weeks and then say the only thing you're allowed to do is go run down that street and Through this window or whatever that they really wouldn't even have gotten the rise that the whole structure of the system is set up to to circumvent the kind of complexity of the human spirit that's for sure ranging arranging idea. But I just feel like they are so sophisticated and that nothing is they they control it more than some people think basically I think yeah. With me the mind control box, which Netflix we talk about this a lot the founder of net flicks, and its first CEO, was the son of Edward, Brenes the famous propaganda, the not marrying a famous propaganda Freud's nephew. We. They do. It's a brilliant plan for them because we work all day and then we go to escape to veg out in front of a mind control box that win our minds are at. It's most weakest and least critical and most receptive to manipulation. We escape to a box that feeds us with propaganda in that vulnerable state just washes over the naked brain. Yeah. It's more indirect as opposed to the more direct propaganda we have I have teenagers plugged directly into the Matrix. Like my my daughter will say to me, I, don't care if you're right I cannot believe you or I will be ashes I. Yeah and she sees the videos on Youtube which warns her against people like me. Yeah, it's joke. She's like, oh my gosh, there's video about. Do you know a truth there? Like are they bubble blah? Yeah I. Know there. Aren't you interesting? Insure. Signals. Signals that tell people whether or not you're a truth or and should be avoided. Like hydroxy clerk win as we talked about earlier if your doctor. And your doctor must be a trump supporter and you need to stay away from that Nazi kind of. Just the level is so funny to me. There was an interesting book in the seventies I. Don't know if you've ever seen it called four arguments for the elimination of television and it's a small book. It's really really good book was written by a guy that escaped the eastern bloc. So he came over we hadn't seen a lot of TV and it was just a fascinating. Little Book because it goes through the fact that it's not just A. A bad idea that it's really truly a dangerous technology that people simply are not capable of dealing with because of the way it actually operates and. In now you look at at the decline. Yeah. There was a lot of screwed up stuff in the early nineteenth century. L. Has always been a lot of screwed up stuff and people bleed all sorts of nonsense but. Today each just so so far from reality there's literally no body talking about something that's real out in the public square. It's just completely off limits and you think about someone even say Barry Goldwater Imagine Barry Goldwater actually being a major party candidate that guy is really hard core. Seriously, hardcore guy like and a guy like John Kennedy that guy would be A. Nut Right winger today and he was Democrat nominee and you look at what we have now biden harass a man with dementia and some joker like a Kamala Harris. He's a cop I mean she's just a long line just screws people over and I mean, and that's being taken seriously, and so that's how far we fall and in that amount of time and I would argue that stuff was on purpose that way that the radio and TV and most insurance controlled four. Longtime plan. I mean you chop Brzezinski he wrote in his book was at the between two ages yes. Seventy two I mean it just lays it out. There is it's not like it's hidden. That's doing. Is Peace like hobos brother Chris. CUOMO's Andrew Cuomo brother and he's the news guy who's telling you that what's really happening and? How many things do they have to have? Right? You Got Anderson Cooper. You've got just the list of these clues only job outside of the media was in the did you know that Cooper's only jobs to yell his? Jobs are in the CIA and then he when he graduated, he decided not to get a real job but to be this intrepid independent freelancing reporter who had. All these cure South Eastern Asian countries it's like really are you. It is joke is to put it out there bill bar the even Kapiti. They claim he joined the CIA after law school for one year. That's ludicrous. I mean nobody joins us. Here at work out for me he's. Ashley A CI Long-time. Deep operative in and you look at a guy like colonel prouty wrote his book secret team in the. Early seventies or something, and you know he talks about then how they had deep cover agent Susan entire careers were spent in the private sector and all different things and they may or may not have ever been called on but they were there with an incredible baxter that was untouchable anytime they needed them and if anyone thinks that the situation has improved since the early seventies they're living in a dreamland, those those operas are everywhere and. You're on some burger question. They're everywhere. They're absolutely everywhere they're buried in everything they have unlimited funds to finance these jokers run the damn drug traits they get all that dark money they have unlimited funds. We have no idea when you have something called the Bank of International Settlements where you all you have is basically a coded. ID anytime they want they can simply punch in a code ide-, put money into an account and nobody could ever know and it's legitimate money. It's in an account now it doesn't even have to be earned. It's just there now. This almost impossible to defend against a opponent. The has those kinds of reach feet but here's the thing if they can just and they can create the money out of thin air. They're absolutely doing that constantly in I just it seems to me that this can't be about the money it cannot be about the money and. What is it real at this point? Is it even fuss? So it's not about the money. It's about something bigger than that and can even be fun for their basically just domesticating humanity I guess as a way to think of were their pets and is that even fun like make that people so stupid, that's been fun to dominate them like what is the? What's it? What's it all about? What is the game? I had a friend of mine up over the weekend and We talked a lot of guy for you know forty years and. We talk about it and I just don't see any. Positive outcome that doesn't even Lee either lead to the mass of humanity being in a very, very bad situation for themselves or they're being very, very few people. I just I tend to think that the end game is getting rid of these people and. The they don't need them could because what is the point of keeping a bunch of people around that? They call useless eaters eating up resources and getting the way of everything. There isn't one that's if you sit down as a cold calculating matter and you say if I was going to be a person, I was in charge. This is a psychopath and nothing was ever enough for me because look think about if you have ten billion dollars, is that not enough? I mean how you ever GonNa Spend. About this I can't hard about it. Did you ever see the movie wally? no never saw. It's just it's A. Kids. Think. They had all these useless leaders eaters on a ship and they were mad like the the evil empire was this corporation that sold them stuck. They just sat around eating. They didn't produce anything and I was like so that doesn't really make that corporation evil because you're not doing anything but I thought of a reason why they might keep people in sit like this instead of just wiping them out and it would have to be kind of about the money which and it also. Easily lead to like Communism and Marxism, which is not where I mean it to go. The problem is the problem. So they take the middle class and the upper middle class and they suck away all the surplus labour from them in the form of taxes, which then subsidizes that useless eater. Layer and they consume. With. All the prophets going all the way up to that tiny little triangle at the top. So I just because that's what it seems like. It's happening right now with the. Media. Step, I say I agree that's what they're doing now happening now. Yeah. I look at it at the at the the picture over the next couple of decades if we have that long who knows but a if they do if we keep going, why would they do it? You know what is the point of any of that when they on quite for me most of the general public, they are inconvenience I can't stand in Iraq yeah. General Public I. Want people would want to get rid of him. I have a kind heart so I would never. But. It's the same reason I love animals. I would never be an animal this or people. They have a right to be here. The fact that they're idiots there's they're wasting allies chips around scooters. Knock yourself out I just don't WanNa be rounded well I. Think if I could see if I controlled as much as they do. And I was twisted and I didn't. Care if I torture people and stole all their stuff which they clearly don't care than. I just don't see any outcome that doesn't end up being that there aren't a lot of people left. When when you look at Bill Gates who is the? Most recognizable voice on this health crisis and he's a Frau Chee for Shan hit but his his actual, his actual claim to fame prior to this is number one goal was to reduce the population. So it's kind of weird that the guy who? Relation is the guy who's supposed to save us all from the health problem and that's A blatant blatant contradiction in the narrative which I think they do all the time because they love revelation the method and we've been in revelation the method for twenty years now since nine one one. Even. To a one was ads event. Yeah. They you know if you believe the stuff that they right about that stuff that kicked it off. That was kind of the kick off to this phase that they call revelation of the method where they don't even attempt to hire anymore they literally put it in your face and. The, that's what they're doing and the purpose of it is you know if you if when you think about it, it does make sense is the problem that they demoralize living crap out of people who can see it and just make it such that there's literally no limit to what they can do because the people who do kinda catch on look at them say while they just got it on such lockdown they literally say the word and the entire walks down but people who step out of there i. Got I know somebody I'm in California right now I know people who are being prosecuted for keeping their businesses open or doing things outside around. So it's not it looks totally voluntary to me, which is just disgusts me but I do it I mean I'm not causing any trouble five no trouble maker. So there you go but but if I were, they would actually take steps that. So there is that deterrent sure thing and they are so powerful that you I personally don't feel like I could win that battle. Well, it's always to me. It's always a question of whether or not it's it's value. I'M NOT GONNA step in front of a freight train. But that's why I focus on trying to explain to people and see if I can convince some people. Just you know I get demoralized overtime. I gave up riding on my blog years ago just. Like I, I've been enjoying. It's all I see that but I've been enjoying. This, there's when I lost him. I gotTA. Tell you that I had this radio show and people would call in and they would ever complain about Obama ignoring the Constitution and Yada Yada and then trump got in and I would complain about trump ignoring the constitution and then my favorite quote is you're just I said he's not the commander in chief unless he's called into actual service like stop calling him that it's not that it matters that there's a war matters that the congress calls him in whatever and someone said your quibbling about semantics and so. I'll hate hate Obama for the constitution claim that they're not raises A. Don't. Then when trump comes along I'm quibbling about semantics when the constitution and that's when I kind of gave up. Yeah. Well, they're old they're hypocrites. Such terrible hypocrites and you know it's been clear to me. They're hypocrites for twenty years. Now that's the problem and that's why I exited out of that entire constitutional conservative crap and then when I figured out the complete scan, the constitution even is. That's when I was. You know because pilled it's a setup setup for this like that it was meant to be like the Lai Sanders spooner thing whether it be one thing or another here we are kind of thing. I. Going back and forth on whether or not the some of the founders were clearly bad guys. I mean that's has Bershad him for a reason he was. Okay, and there's lots of people that really probably needed to be shot. Of course. Hamilton's the when they make a Broadway play at of course, we'll all you hear about the federalist papers, but the reality is it's such a distortion. The way people talk about all we fought a revolution. Bullshit, we did not we fought and they got the artists of confederation. To tell me that the people were clamoring for Washington be Cain. What a load of crap look what they chose articles of confederation that is so far from a king so far from illegality to tax. The the only things they needed with the constitution was the ability to tax. That's what they really really wanted and to rule that interstate commerce and they knew they could grow it over time but the problem I have with the Constitution the way people talk about it. Is the way they constantly misrepresented as though that's what happened after the revolution. It was a long time after the revolution before they brought the constitution and if you talk about someone's life, it was a long time. So they're like years and years before it was ten years. I think. Yes, years. Saying that it was like saying the war ended in two thousand eight and now we're gonNA have the constitution. Well, it's a whole different. People. A lot of people who signed the Declaration of independence. They weren't even around for that constitution and tons of them didn't trust it because they knew what was going on and the whole thing is a scam and the fact that the people ignore that articles of confederation and how effective it was a keeping the federal government spall it. Time and I'll tell you that. No no I was just that's right. But people who know understand it that that power to lay the tax in require, it is completely different than the idea that you have to ask the states they give it to you or they don't. And that's how that's how it got the two things that I think were. are a bill, the bill or it's like one thing really that could have survived I blame. Thomas. Jefferson and Barbara Madison for getting rid of it is that you could have had state nullification. If they didn't think that the Supreme Court ruled 'cause I looked at it and I thought Congress. Congress can pass these laws and the Supreme Court. Says whether constitutional or not. But what if the Supreme Court didn't do that and Congress wanted to enforce it on the states? They couldn't because there's no enforcement. In the constitution then I looked at. So where's the DOJ come from or the FBI? Major thing after swimming. Yes. I looked into that and I was like look they just did this after the civil war I spent the. Getting in line. Yeah. It's just a long crap. Because they had the taxes, they could do that stuff. They can get away with it because then all of a sudden, they had the money to pay the the strongman. Right well, I guess my position about the constitution kind of thing I ever I have interactions on twitter some other places the simple fact is look whatever the constitution was. It doesn't matter at this point because it's been dead since eighteen, sixty one it's totally impossible right to hold a voluntary union together with a war whether or not slavery is wrong or not fine even though the war wasn't about slavery for the North, it doesn't matter the the the south was fighting to keep its slaves and it's quote lifestyle I get it slavery was dying anyway doesn't matter concede. That, it was the worst possible intentions. Okay. It still doesn't take away the fact there is no consent you go down and take a group of people by force, and then claim that they're in their with their consent. You just can't. It's there's there is no possible way. The constitution survived the civil war it's utterly impossible regardless of what it was. It is no longer union voluntary states that's it, and so that's what we're told and that's that's a blatant lie that I don't have to contest anything in history in order to prove and so. That's the reason I. Don't spend a huge amount of time talking about how the Constitution may or may not have occurred what they might have done with it. It's it's obvious on his face whatever happened during the civil war that's it cost to. She's been dead. It's totally dead and and to claim it's not dead is preposterous because there is no way logically to have a voluntary union of states or half the states were forced in a gunpoint. Right and If, there was an unacceptable if there were unacceptable terms for you to be an partnership with other states and those terms were there. When you entered into that partnership, it's not valid to then start to get them to stop that. Of course, all of the arguments this that. The spooner makes course excellent and there's a great book. It's almost unreadable called disquisition on government at the Calhoun. It really is a set of the pros is so formal but band of reasoning that dude was a genius you read that book he wrote in the early eighteen hundreds it completely describes exact called- constitution was supposed to work and he was dead right It's. Just. It's called the disquisition on government and. Again terrible title. Get through the title. So, difficult to. But it's so interesting and I remember when I read with a while this is you know this there was a time when there were people who talked about this and they discussed this and this is a level of knowledge and education it's like. Yawns above anything people get but I wanted to make one interesting point about Marbury because I remember being law school and getting US stupid class and the very first case you read about it in Con- laws is ridiculous case and what's so stick to be about Marburg again, it's it's typical everything's upside down does anybody remember what the holding in Marbury was? Does any lawyer remember what the holding was I? The only thing I remember was that it wasn't even the issue. It was it was no jurisdiction. That, there's no jurisdiction. Well, every lawyer knows that if there's no jurisdiction to hear case to rule on it, that's that's addressed upfront. All jurisdictional questions are addressed upfront because there's no point. If you don't have jurisdiction well. There's no every single thing that's in Marbury about this is while we hear the case and that's all crap because it should. It's one hundred percent dicta that never should have been in in the at all because there's no jurisdiction. The first thing that should have just said was we've examined such we don't have jurisdiction does nothing else to say about it? That's it, and the reason Marbury is what it is and the reasons uses that if he had tried that time to actually rule and found jurisdiction try to impose something they would have been. Peaches asked are they might have gone just simply got just him out and hung him because they were not going to accept something like that. That was well as little tiny kernels they put in there and then they misrepresent again and again and again, it gets blown up into this big thing. A lot of lawyers also don't know which is no something. I wasn't taught in law school. There's no such thing as an opinion of the court prior to the time Marshall took over. There was no such thing as that you know that you ever. Well, that's the reality. I. Sorry someone came anti reality every every Jerky you over do you mind staying a few minutes? No problem says it's just a janitorial staff trying to come up with the. The reality is. Judge wrote an opinion or didn't write opinion that was it. There was no opinion of the court. That's just something you dream. To make it look like it's to sort of you know substantial thing and I bring this issue up with people. I think even referenced in one of my podcast when the reality is the court sounds like a great thing. But what if there was just one judge up there? If there was only one has nothing in the constitution sets the number, and they've had a variety of numbers many different times. In fact, the biggest court packing event that occurred occurred after the civil war, not during the depression as to why everybody hears about. That's the way threat court threat of court didn't even happen it didn't happen but there was actual court packing right after the civil war, and in fact, they jammed through all sorts of legislation by threatening the people and just refilling, and so again, it's this situation where you could just have one justice you could. Think about that. You could also in the supreme courses absolutely nothing in article three, they could also there's nine justice and then the Supreme Court itself could say that all we have to have is one justice and eight dissenters and and the court opinion holds one. There's absolutely nothing in the constitution that would prevent that. This is this is how crazy it is. When you start thinking about how absurd decide that the supreme court is in charge and tells us the law also other bullshit that people spread and they teach in law school when I start telling people about these things in the article three that could actually exist. We have no idea what the any when they when they go into session and they go back and they start thinking about what they're gonNa do and supposedly right near pans and talking about stuff. It's all one hundred percent confidential. We have no idea what they're doing none. It's just something they make up the idea that it has to be a majority opinion that if a majority five out of four, do it then they? You have an opinion there's nothing in the constitution. There isn't that's Why isn't it have to be a unanimous decision and like I said, there's factor it doesn't have to be unanimous. There's nothing that prevents them for just saying well, if one judge finds, that's what we do. There'd be absolutely nothing anybody can do about that. and. So we start thinking about these crazy scenarios that could exist. Okay. That could exist under the constitution. It's just more evidence that what people say the Supreme Court's there to do. It's just not true. It's just not true. That's all it's. It's just simply not true. You're one case that's it. Our this experiment with with self-limiting governments. Let's say it lasted ten years like I figure I feel like I look at the French Revolution, the restroom revolution, the American revolution it seems like they all kind of last ten years and I I can't help. But think that that it's all a setup from the beginning anyway. So it's Not really last but you get the good idea and you get all the people to get behind it, and then you slip Swatch, swap it out at the top, but it be it begins to feel. I've come a long way and how I've I've thought about it because for all those years that I kinda interacted with within this framework. Trying to defend the bill of rights and just this defend it to the end. Sure and I recently read a book called against the grain which basically I've been talking around a lot lately but it basically just changed my way the way I think about the world. So it's one of those kind of seminal books for my. And the idea is that like I always wondered this was the garden of Eden true or not a metaphor for the fall of Man and the Fountain of the tree of nausea and evil all about the agricultural revolution and all of a sudden having to work by the sweat of your brow and I always had that in the back of my mind and then I read this, this guy says basically, not only that but the reason the agricultural revolution became the system is we had four thousand years of people kind of being sedentary hunter gatherers with the understanding of domestication, but didn't just completely turn into an agrarian society and then. Cereal grains specifically harvested at the same time were capable of being taxed. So the tax man would come at harvest time and take half of it, and then they would even enslave you for it and it got me to think that really the true nature of the State for ten thousand years of its existence which coincided with the agriculture. Revolution was basically. This idea of taxation and defacto slavery and it makes me it makes me feel rather hopeless and I feel like you. This is this is my life my I'm looking outside on a swing set and a couple of cars like it I'm not trying to live in an alluvial plain and pick berries as they grow I just don't know how to reconcile. True. Liberty or human nature with with this like extremely complex, very large. Essentially control from the top scenario like I just I need to get my see through the board here and I can't. I can't very difficult and you know I I really think the. The Game Changer was win the frontier closed. On this side that was it that was all the land you know you used to be able to simply leave and go out and. Kinda be left alone. You know you had. You had problems out there because there's other people living out there but you know it's a very small population compared to what we have now and you could go out and just kind of leave and I think that was the the big game changer was once there really was nowhere else to go. people like me were just kinda screwed because there is no escape we are now on a closed system, well is nowhere to go. There's not government to come track. Yak Jess as. PROUTY opened my mind to that in his book on Jfk I. Think it was like the JFK assassination or something, but it was about a lot more. Did you read that one? I'd ever read his JFK I've not necessarily in the. K. But you know it's it wasn't. It was so much more than that and it opened basically with this idea that during the age of exploration whenever that was fourteen hundred something that Magellan basically. made it. Clear. The size of the realm to conquer kind of like the then the kings of the powers that be could get their minds around it and then just set out to do it. And they've got in and that, and then you can bring it all the way up to like Road Cecil Rhodes and the British Empire that I think if I'm not mistaken, he said kind of as looked like it was the sun was setting on the British Empire last his just go underground make every speak English spread social democracy have these wars open up the markets and we can still rule the world kind of, and if it all comes to that but that is it is it feels like closed system in which case the only hope is to think outside the system, which is kind of where we started. On this, it's not gonNA work here. So enjoy it and and and let's see what the fifth dimension brings I just tend to think. That these are long long cycles and the history we've been given is a load of crap. I don't have you ever read that Book Forbidden Archeology Cream Oh wrote and. Early, nineties or late eighties. No I have forbidden history people of sent me a few forbidden books, but for archaeology, saving yours. Is the one you have. Either four in Hartford y'all is worth a it's a big books maybe seven hundred pages. The thing is fascinating about it is that it just shows that and the thing that says to me about it is that if if any piece of this had anything in there and he's got just example at, for example, it's clear as day if any of it's true in the entire history of been given all complete crap. Ample Yeah well, I mean I would give you the example of Dwarf which anybody can look up the city off of India that they found. Now that was allegedly just to sort of spiritual city in books and they didn't think exists now they've actually found it and it's underwater in an in an area where at minimum the last time that place would have been not underwater in the Indian Ocean would have been twenty five to thirty thousand. Years ago, and it's a huge city and it's exactly like is predicted in all their books and so there's other ones and they found all these different highly skilled tools that were steel and all sorts of other things they founded inside of things in when they were when they're doing a mining, they would ship out some giant piece coal or some other thing, and there'd be a tool inside there. I'll well, it's in a tunnel, their digging impact. Principal with this that you read this and you you feel like you're convinced by it. Oh well, I mean you have to read this book. You'll see how stuff is in there. He has fascinating amount of detail all the different news clippings of the day. was found of course, things like the Smithsonian Institute. Those things are found simply to go around collect all this stuff embarrassed. Yes. People Imagine it's helping Mitch. Not It's just around there to collect all stuff up of course, the Vatican archives of the same thing they go around but prior to the Smithsonian, they would just travel the world and whenever stuff they find stuffed screwed up wikileaks. Just. Take drag it back to kill the people make sure they have all the copies and take a back with them and that's it and and so. These types of things have existed long time and I just for me as far as the comfort level goes is that these are just long long very long cycles, thousands and thousands thousand of years we've probably been through countless numbers of. At this point on the planet. So to me I get a perverse kick out of the idea that I might get to see the end one of them. That's kind of cool. There's not that many people that get to and yeah, it's unlikely I will because in all likelihood die in a way I won't be sure but I hope I can last long enough to be like Oh yeah this is definitely the major calling you know billions and billions go in this time it'd be like okay well, at least I, got to see because there's a damn thing I can do to stop it. I'm I think of more like Woody Harrelson that movie two, thousand, twelve, or somebody's reporting from the edge of the volcano and things blow up and he's all stoked. It's blown up he's got blown up himself. There's no shopping this coming coming. It's coming and I really think that it's gotten so bad. So polluted people's minds everything about it. So screwed up that you just have to kind of clean the slate and. People here that I don't feel know you're actually making feel better about it because it's a much bigger perspective and I've actually had that thought where like I thought if I if I died went to heaven and I had eternity and goes like well, you know whatever knock yourself out what he wanted to I would my first thought even suppose little kid I thought I would pick a time and live a whole lifetime during a particular time like the nineteen hundreds where I look good in a bustle or something I just would would pick something cool and I thought maybe I picked this it's not a. Bad. Like I said, I mean I don't think is that bad outcome if they're going to do it was like, okay we'll have them around with this and I'm getting closer and closer convinced that this is the end game now whether or not that means they take us all out and they get to you know live some kind of Liam style thing I don't know but whatever it is, it's going to be a very big event. We are coming up to big events. This world is massively changing and I'm in the middle of it and I'm very well positioned in that's not going to blindside me. All these people it's GONNA blindsided coming. I'm going to see what's coming and it's like okay. So it's know it's just like I said is for me I get a perverse pleasure out of the fact that these big giant things that move through history. This is a really big one I mean it's a really really big one. To these are people one, hundred and fifty, two, hundred years from now talk about this will be big. Well now you're scaring me again I was happy. Because if it's if if everything blows up and I don't have to worry about my kids see if there are people hundred fifty years from now you got me vaccine I have to were saying we. All are they going to be slaves? Are they going orchard? There's people it's going to be very few I really don't this. Large numbers of people the chance of the making very low I mean I. Think I think the likelihood of getting really large bases. Huge Office is making you feel better. Better a little bit because the one thing I could not live with is if I created someone who would. Would be able to function in that other world like that's what I don't try to tell my kids like if you're not in the tunnel with me, then I don't care if you're six if you succeed like we're we're gonNA fight in the tunnels or you're you're not mine. And I know a lot of people that think like that to me again. I. Go back to the fact that, hey, you know everybody's individual life they're going to be fine. They're really going to be fine. If they're here, they're not here whatever they're ultimately going to be completely fine and again they might get a great pleasure out of being there and fighting and doing so he don't know what they. Might do we don't know what any individual might do, and so a lot of people are telling me that they've they're buying land and planting seeds growing animals and they're and they're enjoying it. Okay and that's great and I wish him the best with that. You know I know that's not me. I've just I've had a lot of people I know this I've I've done a lot of work with disability. Law In the past and I've done a lot of people who are disabled also not a lot of people's off Iras ever put a wheelchair I just kill myself. Reality is most people get put a wheelchair. They don't just turn on kill themselves and it says you you. You adjust very quickly to negative circumstances just like you do too positive circumstances same reason you get tired of your Lamborghini Audi driven for a few months aboard whether they buy something else is. The same way you can get adjusted to all sorts of different bad situations and so I would never say that you would feel bad you should. You certainly shouldn't feel bad for your kids if they make, they're going to have a life and they're going to be able to you know live it and do different start I care about them morality. So you said that you do think that this isn't the whole thing for us and I care about being that. We're not being a small patty successful, little human. I want want something more than morality is a personal issue or there's really not a morality when it comes just like saying, they're the we the people it's just a made up thing. There's only individuals ultimately. So if they're good moral people than they're good more people and and if they're not, they're not enough people abuse them than people abuse some people abuse me now. Get abused all the time you just can't see you can alter on. Like Abused all the time I have many different times to crop judges and everything else. Doesn't affect me. You know what I mean. It doesn't affect me I am my own personal morality I just look at it and say, well, that's pretty screwed up thing and of course, must these morals that are just made up things anyway they really ultimately are now I I personally like the non aggression principle that's kind of apply that he can't coerce people but you know once you get beyond that, it's pretty murky. It gets pretty murky to me but. People. Don't worry about your kids still gonNA be fine. Regardless of what happens they're going to be fine. Well I appreciate that confidence. I do try very hard to make sure that they're fine and I actually have a disabled. Son Who has down syndrome and I feel like that's the saving grace for my other kids because that kind of defines morality. In that, you gotta take care of each other and that that helps a lot. So these are even if they are not human the big capital T. Day we are human and that's king. Letters and I have a question for you that has absolutely nothing to do with anything but also have a cocktail blog. So I have to know what's your favorite cocktail? I I've gone through phases. I probably drink a lot of fashioned right now but. Fair but he like Bourbon affects your favorite. You know like bullet. I'm not I don't do a lot of drinking to be honest I used to do a lot more drinking but I really don't do a lot of drinking anymore used to love to Kiel I've gone through every one of them except for Gin and vodka and got through all the others that I've enjoyed Scotch and Bourbon and Tequila Rum. But now I kind of like a like a lot of Bourbon but we have everyone while we are we have a cocktail shell like that's what we do for. A couple of weeks someday we'll invite you if you're if you. If it's a cocktail drinking day and you carry go people drink I, don't. Grow. Well, that was the thing I. So I moved out to La, and people are just leaving in droves and I recognized immediately that the reason everybody was leaving was not because the bars were closed but because the gym's were closed they can't tolerate it sean important to them to have the the Health clubs open that. So maybe I'm out of my element out here I liked it better when I lived in Texas. Yeah I like I have to have access to a gym when they closed it down and really pissed me off I had to get my home home gems squared away which I did and so now if they locked me down again, I don't care I. Got my gym see that's total strata. Harry Brown how I found freedom on free world it's perfect. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your time like I feel like. You're a lawyer Mike. Wow you know how much? How much guys time is worth? Pay Paid lawyers like you don't want to just ask them bullshit questions for an hour and a half because. I enjoyed talking about the topics I really do it is so fun listening to your show I really I really enjoy it and I, and I liked it. There are some ups and downs on the on the whereas the hope I'm GonNa have to. Get. My favorite might have to take a couple of clips, our it, and the hope is that you're. GonNa make it. Into Planet. Asylum not an optimist. Every to put a clip with the beginning of the show, it's definitely GONNA be. Here maybe we feel better because my kids are GonNa make it. Leave them laughing. Thank you so much legal man and. We always look forward to your next episode. It's so it's just short enough to keep me wanting more. I think it's Phone. Thank you guys. Thank you so much. Okay.

We need a short sheer willpower, and you know a little bit of determination boys I already looked at it. I I couldn't tell what it was now. Let's sit down this way. To. Start walking down, follow you. Did they tell us what it's going to be down this hallway or they just said it's servants. Quarter leads to the upper level of the palace as you get further down. You see a quarter that leads to some doors. There's there's down. There's a door all on the west side. Single or double door in the hallway continues, but it loops around innocent. Some stairs going up. Okay. Through these doors say anything on or near them. No, but they clear the lead like they have. You can smell food like it's. It's the kitchens eighteen. Amazing.

I, don't think there was anything that was like. Supposed to stop in the kitchen, right? No, I think so a better not be a place to take down that barrier. In the kitchen, so I guess we'll head up the stairs, okay? I'm. GonNa, move all of the doors, okay. As you walk up the stairs, it leads to the second level of the palace. You see hallway that splits, it goes left and straight, and there's some windows along the straight hall and doors that lead to other rooms. And and then there's another hallway that goes straight down. With more doors Oh. Wow, there's a million ways to go. Any. There's no light no nothing on the walls indicating where we go. Now, there's there's like paintings and stuff, but but there's nothing that. It's really quiet up here. unnervingly quiet. Okay Great. Let's take a minute to think about what we need to do.

And that's. Has the double doors down here as those are. Moving to me I love and I peak around this corner. Just. Subtly peak around. Continue to sink around us. Oh, there might be a library of Beer. We need one of those with US chip Easter. There, we go to the first store on are right. Next to that first door. You see some stairs that lead down. Some stairs over here. GOING DOWN A. Different way, down I guess. No let's check the store. I feel like we're just going in a circle around the big kitchen courtyard thing. Well. When I was up there, it wasn't is big as what's down here, so there's some else here. Can I take like ten minutes to listen store and see if there's? You. Don't hear happening. You don't hear anything. And Danny. 'cause it's. Nothing that is no commotion. This went to the right of the staircase. Definitely is, but I think the one. That's the third down on the right.

Absolutely. When you open the store inside looks like a bedroom. That's could sleep in. There's a chest in their Abed I'm the bed is haphazardly like made like looks like it was made quickly. And all the belongings are gone from this room. It looks like it was stripped. The chest is empty then. It's open. The chest is actually open. Or just a bedroom me. It's just a guest room.

The other chester empty. There's another door that leads out of this room. It kind of looks like it's looping around that kitchen. Like. Yeah absolutely! We open it. You come into this next hallway to you're right. There's some spiral staircase that goes back down. It's a long haul with a lot of windows, and there's two doors that are on the sides of this like sitting area like a curved sitting area that has yet more double doors at the end of it. There's couches and chairs on. It looks really cozy. Is it like a balcony the sitting area. Can you look down? You cannot look down. No, it's. It's like an What's it called when you?

They look out at this lookout like the main entrance that were in the middle of the castle. It does yet you come out over the front of the castle where where you entered. There's no barrier. There is a barrier, but you can see through it. Will like I could walk across this room with Ya on the other side. A wall doesn't permeate the second floor. I don't understand what you're saying.

The other door in this room this room has. Reading desk some shelves with books another like work desk. It looks like a work room. I forgot to add my strength of so that's another plus for top that. You actually see this thing like one of its arms breaks off, and it starts moving slower. I WANNA BE WANNA in the corner. Okay, top corner of the room, Yep perfect.

Get rid of it different than restraint, though right? Yes, right if I move. If I five to this spot, can I sell attack? Yes, okay, then that's what I'm. GonNa do I'm GONNA spend one action to. Move Up. And then try to attack it from around ten okay. Now that Tim's knees buckled. You're in for the kill ongoing in. It's now down a level now. It's within his reach. Put it in the words that crit. Thank God Elia. visited me a lot of damage potentially. To its doubles the sneak attack here. Yeah, it doubles every single damage. You all of it all twenty three year. Your dagger comes in and somehow just. Like a rock and saw come robot. You hit it in the right place and it just all falls apart. Nice. mcvay good hit! Great. You guys did awesome. I also found some sense girls. If if anybody needs to heal, oh, yes. Well of US have bloody nose. Yeah, that'd be great. He's at five points right. Okay, so this is a sued. Scroll level too. So I'm not sure what that does. It? Feel level to the right. So let me find that real quick, and you still see goose amine like. Oh, maybe we want him to.

So Peter, it looks like you Semaine from what you can tell like you're not sure, but he's just been knocked unconscious through beating like someone has punched him in the face He's got like dried blood all over. beat him unconscious. Hey, let's shut that door, so nobody else can come in or see what we're doing. You're gonNA shut the door. Yeah! Let's. Run over there and shut the door. And then run back. I mean you can go ahead and go over to the other. And I just want to check my inventory one more time. See if I have anything else. I. I have to potions left. I'm GONNA drink one and give, and we can give one to goose main. Okay, perfect, I don't have any potions, so that's it for me. That is literally it no more. and. You're to give a push into him. Yeah, it's to date plus five. K. while you're giving that to him over on the other side of this wonderful palace. Hidden for eighteen points. No, I healed myself for. Okay over on the other side Emma and Ellie. Who just interacted with. The lady and she disappeared. And you open the door? You're in that room. All white remember. All the paintings are white like there's no reflective surfaces. Yes, and you open the door where she was talking about you're GonNa wake the baby and you saw that little child holding dolls. It has like the Fox type skull deer, a deer skull. And it was looking at you, and it just said. Oh hello more holes. So this is our adopted baby. I'm not adopting that. No, it makes such a great parent. couple. It'd be great. WHAT THE SCARY BAD GUY! And I could just be the person that plays with the cute little baby deer. I feel like. Probably just GONNA leave that. She closed the door on the baby I slowly and politely also who's the door. Let me you here, wait you I thought. We were GONNA play I try to lock it frantically. I look around for a log. Looks at you like Oh, come on. She's to- cute. Shut, the door. That was court unsettling though. where the lady go. I. Don't know I think she might be invisible. What makes you think that? Just a hunch. Bull. She disappeared into. The Wild Bill Yonder. Did you see if there are any doors out of that room? I didn't really get good. Look is looking at the DNA with the and creepy dolls, and he was like kind of floating off the ground. You did see a staircase leading up. I remember that that's right. That's right. There was that case in the back, but status but I mean this whole areas bin Laden. Boarded off, so maybe there's something special up there. Yeah I mean it's a baby's room. I wouldn't have a baby guard something that sounds in a guarded area. That's is a dead baby, though that's a good point, so maybe they would. within this other. Do I guarantee check by me? so last resort you open the door behind you and you see a bathroom. There's a tub a toilet. I step into the bathroom. I look in here, Tim. Again all white, even like the anything that sort of would have been reflective on the top of the toilet has been scratched out. Has a matte finish okay? Can I look like it looks like maybe closet. Toilet your tub. I mean sorry. His cough today aired. Can I look underneath it and just kind of check around, yes? Exceptions, Aaron Mirror in here. No mere no reflect surf reflective surfaces. Best odd. I will go back out then. Seems like this ladies I the. Invisible old be. Just gone. Yeah and there is definitely a small skeleton baby dea in the other room. That might be more interesting. But maybe got throw these couches first and see if we can find any clues. Yeah let's let's investigate before we commit ourselves to that baby. Yeah, I want to search through the cushions of the couches and. And under chairs underneath the bottoms of chairs. Just look around without touching anything. Go ahead and roll me perceptions. I will dirty. This room is literally stripped You're looking through cushions. There's nothing in here. For the chairs and couches and white walls, so what if we go into the baby room and we try to talk to it and I'm ladles. Although it seemed to think that we were the Dole's. Why it fell like children go on. What was your plan? If we make a window, one of these chairs and I give it the Dole till as like a battery chip. Okay, yeah I, you try that maybe. I I've never made a doll I support you. I'm going to go over one of these chairs. It looks like they have like the wooden poles back. And I'M GONNA I'm gonNA break atop off and take. A couple pieces and just kind of make them. Like the cross pieces Yup, and then I have some rope in my bag, and I'll just cut off as much as I need to like. Make it all out of it Oh, isn't that your doll? I mean. Could you do better like? Is it done okay? Unless you'd like to give me some of your hair. At May. Little. No but I can actually a good point and. Some of her hair off and put it on, okay. I know. But? Why? Yeah I will claw you re check. I just made a Voodoo doll myself. On Felicia where you must not were were not that good of friends I killed a guy. You want to her hair. I cut my hair. Table for a while. I should have been right here. You Own my God oh. Oh? You've got the. Not Cute. Ugly sounded ratios. You. Stuck in the shower drain created. Why not use the couch cushion. For real yeah also could i. just cast illusory disguise on that. No, that's not cellphone response. Then but I. do have the team one. Kartheiser, forgot you have the team won. Not is now the third member of our Party. Would you like to try to animate? His name's little bushy. Little Pussy would I'd like to try to enemy I think was just that name. Even though it's a terrible name, but it should be that. Like Oh I could use match horse till I carry it in my jaw. Shirker on like Okay Well I. Have added my pretty blonde hair that slowly all the time to it I cut some of my own hair off and put it on the stall. Just a you know I have made a Voodoo doll myself that I'm about to give to a dead under being. So how how that goes now? I think there was some hair in the bathtub we could've used. was there. was there any hair too late now? I mean I. Don't have to. I could just put this in my pocket and say it's the best you can do and. And that kind of makes me. Why would you put on the doll at all? Considering the creature giving it to hairless I fear for you guys because you make things that are familiar to you, not things that you think my familiar to other people as like a kneejerk reaction. You go with what's familiar to you. Would think of that. All right here we go. Gross Little Doll what if? You know what what if I just prepare sleep just in case. I mean if you want to. That's fine. This is definitely going to work. On. Your idea was good I. Don't think you're is on the soap. Level I could add soap. That would make me feel better, yeah. She'll clean off the back of it a little. Okay, so you have a little doll like you. That's cleaned. You've cleaned it up a little bit. And you'RE GONNA. Make it or you're going to carry it. I would feel more comfortable if we made handed it, so she couldn't grab or bite us. So. We're not gonNA have any action. She just get Dole of me I. I'm so sorry. Are you baby Hungary right now?

Okay can I can I reach for my bag and try to grab the paint out? Yeah. Let's Roll Initiative I. Oh, this is that kind of thing. Uma Europe I see this thing scratch Ellie, and it gets a deep cut in her arm and you see it. Take that same breath. GonNa Open her mouth to scream, but nothing will come out silence Yep. Don't worry. We'll all play together real wellstone. K.. I am going to In this whole process, it's happening. It's all kind of seamless. She runs out. She gets scratched or whatever and then I'm running over behind the kid as he's running scratcher into as I get to him, I'm GonNa. Try to scoop him up and just like hold him to my chest so that he's immobilized. Okay athletics checked to grapple. Even grab him like. Is he solid or is he a ghost thirty six? Okay thirty six is a cricket. So. He is restrained in your in your arms. And you hear Ellie speaking to you, and she says from this creatures voice. What are you doing I? Thought you were my friend. Look sometimes you friends have to help you. Stop doing things you doing because the bad. And you're hurting people in. That's not nice. To and I. Can I diploma size with this little creature like to try to explain that hurting people is bad and like. To make friends, you have to be nice to people. Yeah, absolutely. so I I started off by saying that. Sometimes you have to you know. Be Nice, people or whatever? And your friends have to stop you from doing something because you're doing the wrong thing. Some and go ahead and roll. That diplomacy is not very great, but I feel like that's where she would go with us. Fifteen in your own voice, you hear no, no. Let me go. Right. You'RE GONNA have to go on time out now I'm not letting you go until you stop being mean to people. And I'm just going to continue pinning restraining this creature awesome Ellie. You're up. I love how you're trying to mom it to I know Luma all, people. Until telling a little thing like the same with eleanor. I was like nice to eleanor. Skill. Deletion. Kids I can't do it, not a child. It's not a trial monster. I don't. It's a little baby turtle. Bad horrible thing. It's my God. Okay, question yeah. So it's. Is it like a like a little Gremlin with a deer skull on it? Is it a ghost? Like what physical properties in my senior would you like to spend an action rolling knowledge? I think we already tried that. When we saw it and we didn't know anything I just want to know like. What can I see? Oh, thanks, oh, straight up. Yes, just like all bones, okay? Weird dropped up from its mouth. Yeah okay swearing, a Toga and it's a skeleton. Great doesn't even have already. Guys come obviously not normal, so I could probably just crush riggins. Little bones just breaking Jeff. King. Yeah? Well, there's there's nothing that Elliott. Do you rank has spells, but she does. Have this really weird legendary. Crossbow with her so. She's GonNa pull it out and try to intimidate it to at least make it stop. Okay, don't shoot me. Look, you stabbed me. What twice now? Is Rough being on the ice thought you were a bad guy. L. E. pulls out of her giant legendary crossbow, and points it at the small skeleton child, and attempts to intimidate it with her glaring red eyes, and her fearsome clause, and just thinks as hard as she can. Stop this. And I'll role from tim date. Do, can I use diplomacy burn tiffany. I WANNA. Make you feel bad now, okay? It's GonNa hurt just a little bit. Ten That's not very nice. Now you will pay. You still have to actions I guess one because you pull out your crossbow. I kinda WanNa, just What. Do I have to. I'm just checking if one of my spouses verbal absolutely. Go with me. All, these different voices coming out of it. She's GonNa. Ask What are you? I in your friend. Friends don't treat friends like this. If you were really our friend. You would let us go. But then we can be friends for. Ever. Okay, what are you doing with your last action? I'm going to shoot it. Okay! Was your crossbow loaded. Nope, I'm going to load it okay. I'm GonNa look for instructions and then load it. You just loaded. For, that, Warranty You don't need that, yeah! It is up. It is going to try to escape. Irma. Okay, got a national eighteen, so whatever it rolled. It would have succeeded, so it breaks free from you. And it lands on the ground, and then it looks Ellie home the crossbow like loading it and it goes. That's not very nice, and it's going to attack. You L. E. I. L. I'm your mom. Thirty six. Yeah he's been killed. One. Out of healthcare 'cause they may have heard it. Yeah. Who loved him in a room this whole time twenty four damage. Do we come? And It attacks you again. I'm going to die. If it does more than forty. A natural twenty. I'm dead. Dead Dead. So. That's twenty eight damage. Is it a critical hit it is. And you take dying condition to. Hero. Coin. Area Quest Coin. Yeah. There's no. There's no damage equal to your hip points. Would you like to Save Your Quest Corner? Use It to do something now. I. Don't K-. Just being totally honest I'm terrified to use a coin with death. Based on, all of the stories y'all have told me resort. To do it. And I mean your character already had this. Yeah, you're already a witch so I mean homage West could again. Expecting to just look ugly forever I think the just cemented. You never know it'll be like Shrek and Fiona situation where you're going. Learn that you've been pretty yellow, not done yet. Whenever I'm Nice I'm pretty and whenever I mean I'm ugly, but pretty inside. Europe. Dying tying to. Giving us your coin while she's, she's not dead yet. Live Kinda curse placed upon you by Karen Tissue. Can't Tisch press more than. Four knows how to do while she hired her to do it or whatever. That's a good point could have hired somebody back for me. She have paid three thousand dollars for somebody travel across the border in Cursor Artemije. What what are you doing? I think am going to. PULL OUT MY. Spear or my lance and I'm going to my first action, and then as my second and third actions I'm going to use knock down. to attack him and then sweep under his legs to knock him over. Make him fall down. Oh so one action to knock him down and won. What are you trying to accomplish by knocking him down? Just didn't make it, so he has less economy of actions next time for him to do anything crazy with spell wise, he can attack Ellie from prone there an attack you from prone there. I guess that makes sense. Try to hurt his confidence. Many kids don't other. destroyed. Yeah! No. Better than and. Destroyed confident Oh God. I think there's one thing that you do best. Thing, yes. There's not a diplomatic way to solve this right now I know you. Know I'm still I'm definitely looking for something to her a kid right now. I guess I will just attack three times. I have cool wall jumping as a Canadian I'll just jump off all land on intrinsic crush it with like a bludgeoning body slam, but. I do better with a spear. Okay, well I, yeah, I'm I'M GONNA attack this thing with my gods bike. Wait hold on. What do you still have your coin? Yeah. You guys will allow you if you WANNA use it to somehow intercept that. TAP IT to go out. Okay. Is that something. I can do with it. Yeah, we've always done that can't talk. I am ugly can't seduce I'm I'm much more helpful on the ground? but not dying. That's fair. Okay so I'll. I'll use my coin next time. Take the consequences. I, I think it's a better option to. Intercept it and have us both have actions available and not be dying. Honestly. So I don't mind using it at all. So the little kid when he attacked her, he did he scratcher her again, or did he do something else? After scratched her okay, and he had jumped out of my hands to do it right. As he jumps out of my hands, all use my quest coin to grab his arm and spin him around so that his scratch gets me instead of her. Grabbed his legs like a kid flying away from you? Yeah, like as if as if I was trying to keep him from rotting away from me. You take the twenty eight points a damage Ka. L. You're still standing and. Can Get under your I took twenty eight, and she took twenty four. Is What happened correct? Okay I'm at eighteen points. K. Now you may take your tournament. I am going to definitely just. Take out my my dear land and attack him. An has had I'm GonNa say you know I really wish we could have been friends. And then I'm GONNA. Stab the little shit in the face. And I have a minus one to all of my attacks right now. Okay so I had to take out my spear, so it's going to actually be my. Own it'll still be my plus seventeen. Yes. That was with the minus one so twenty five. That's a hit. And this is also the minus one so eleven. Damage Cow. I tell you you should have played nice and then all attack again for my last action. And that is going to be. You don't get to be one of my dolls. I don't want to be. Seventeen. That's a mess well. No. That's a hit because you're I'm flanking. Yeah, I, forgot about that would have been last time I. Don't know what I rolled Yonathan. All right so thirteen damage and that was also with the minus. L. UP.
