Do not forget that this is the same crowd that somehow took no issue with the riots that we saw in the spring and summer of 2020 with the BLM movement. No, no, that was just totally fine. I mean, despite the fact that people were hurt and despite the fact that businesses lost so much including many small businesses, I remember one BLM activist out in Chicago saying, oh, it's no big deal that they have insurance. Somehow like they were just dismissing it all. It just didn't matter, even though you had violence in the streets. And yet they're going to look at January 6th and talk about it like a violent riot as though there was and it's not to it's not to excuse the fact that one woman's life was lost or that some people got hurt. But let's just put it in perspective. This was not a massive, massacre with just hundreds of people getting hurt.

Ken Fish Has a Gift From God: He Prays for People and Stuff Happens

"You're traveling all kinds of places and you pray for people and stuff happens. There are a lot of people that don't believe in the miraculous, and I would think if they would hang out with you, that would go away very quickly because you have a gift from God where you pray for people and stuff happens. And I grew up in a world where that never happened. And I think the people need to know God is alive, and it doesn't mean he's going to answer our prayers just because we want him to, but he does. And he can, and we need to know that. So you where have you been recently and what's been happening? You mentioned something about angels and Costa Rica. I love this stuff, so what's cooking? Well, let's start in November. November was a really busy month. I was only home four days, although admittedly, 5 of the missing days were because I went to Texas for Thanksgiving with my wife, my daughter to visit my other daughter. So anyway, but in November, we went and did a meeting in Ohio and two people who were in wheelchairs got out of their wheelchairs in that meeting in Ohio. And the one woman, she was in an electric wheelchair, which I mean, to me that is an indication that it's worse than just standard wheelchair, right? Because with a scanner when you can at least push yourself over along if you need to. But anyway, she got out of her wheelchair and ran around the sanctuary and then when she finished that lap, she fell on her face, not because she fell, but she, as we say, hugely. She fell on her face, bowed down and was weeping and her husband stood there weeping because his wife had gotten out of this

Mike and Caller Ron Discuss the Sickening Crime Wave Plaguing American Cities

"Ron and San Diego here in the relief factor dot com studios wants to weigh in on this crime rave, this surge we're seeing throughout the country. 81 year old music executive's wife shot dead in her Beverly's Beverly Hills home last week. Hey Ron, how are you? Hey, Mike. You know, I'll tell you the crime ways that sweep in this country right now and all these cities is just out of control. And the thing that kills me the most. And you know, I'm close to this, George gascon guy up here in LA. And, you know, this guy wasn't appointed, Mike. He was voted in. I know. By the people. And, you know, they reelected that mayor garce city. And you know, I can't help it, you know, think that these people in LA, if you go up there, you know, I went to the amundsen theater the other night to see Christmas Carol and downtown LA. And then I'll tell in LA between the crime and the homeless, it looks like a third world country. It stinks, it's what I'll never go again. Ron, listen, let me take you to the other coast for a minute. I walked through the 42nd street subway station, a week or two ago in New York City. It was like between the angry aggressive, homeless people and creeps. It looked like a movie set from night of the living dead. It was like the zombies. It was unbelievable. It was scary. It was and people are getting assaulted. There were two women beaten, so badly the other day by a guy who had been arrested 14 times and they won't lock him up because of bail reform laws, the one woman is permanently disfigured. Can you imagine a tourist visiting Los Angeles wants to go see the Christmas Carol or go she rock the Christmas tree at Rockefeller center in New York and you get beaten to a pulp and they won't put the perpetrator in jail? Because they were for me. Mike, they have the early release program here in California and it's like these criminals are running the streets. It's just if you defend yourself by God, you're the one that gets thrown in jail. Oh, you pull out a gun and shoot what you blow one of these miscreants or away?

"one woman" Discussed on Short Wave

"Once a long time ago, but I asked Kenji about this and he told me that when it comes to cooking meat safely, it's actually about temperature and time. So if you get your Turkey up to a 165°, that kills a bunch of bacteria, instantaneously. But if you can get that breast meat up to a 150° and hold it there for at least four minutes, that's also gonna kill a bunch of bacteria. Just make sure that it stays at a 150° for four minutes. And that really shouldn't be a problem for Turkey because they cook for so long anyway. Just make sure that you let the bird rest for a few minutes before you serve it. And he says, please do use a food thermometer, which I second heartily. All right, well, so then I can just get over it, chop up the Turkey and call it a day. Oh no, but wait, there's more. You've probably heard that brining is the other super important step. You have to take before cooking a Turkey if you want it to be juicy, and flavorful, which who doesn't want that? True. But there's actually a huge debate in the food world about which is better wet or dry brining, and people really take sides. Like team wet brine versus team dry brine. Oh yeah, it can get ugly. Well, which one's better? You know, I asked that very question to Nick Sharma. He's a molecular biologist turned food writer, right? So he has spent a lot of time experimenting with how different marinades and brines affect me. And Nick was a little bit coy about it, but he says wet or dry, he's on team salt. Salt is the most important thing in a brine because that's what's adding flavor. It's what's helping build moisture inside. It also reacts with the amino acids present in the proteins of the meat. And changes them chemically. It also helps solubilize some of these proteins, which also makes the meat much more tender. And then finally it also helps retain moisture and this is because when salt is dissolved in water, it splits electrochemically into positive and negative ions of sodium and chloride. And these are the things that react with the molecules present in the proteins. That is the amino acids and changes the electric charges which then all help water binding. So basically Nick saying that normally during cooking, some of the proteins in meat fibers tighten up so that they end up squeezing the juices out of the Turkey, like, water gets squeezed out of a sponge. But when you add salt, it loosens up those meat proteins, so they hold onto more water that your bird stays juicier. Gotta love biochemistry. Exactly. And if you really want to put the power, biochemistry to work, Nick says, for his money, there's one brine to rule them all. Oh. Are you ready for this? Maybe. Fermented, dairy. Fermented dairy. Like yogurt? Yeah, exactly. Or like kefir or buttermilk. Nix says if he had to choose he'd be on team fermented dairy brine. Some Minas rat was a good friend of mine. She wrote a recipe last year for buttermilk brined Turkey, which is pretty fantastic. And if you're familiar with Middle Eastern cooking and Indian cooking, we often use dairy based marinades to marinate meat. And that's essentially what samin is doing here. The reason is that there's lactic acid in fermented dairy. And lactic acid is one of the most gentlest acids on meat proteins. Nick says animals synthesize lactic acid when they're alive, which means their muscles have adapted to dealing with it. So dairy based brines are going to result in Turkey with better texture, you know, Turkey that's tender, but not mushy because the acid isn't too harsh on their muscles..

"one woman" Discussed on Short Wave

"Okay, Maria, you're here to help me cook the best Turkey according to science. Where do I begin? It actually starts at the butcher shop. Instead of buying a whole bird, yeah, I know. You want to buy it cut up in part. In parts? I know, stay with me, baby. Now, if you have a skills and tools at home, you can chop it up yourself with a technique called spatchcocking. So that's where you remove the birds backbone so that it lays flat, but if you want to skip all the guts and just go straight to the glory, just get the butcher to do it for you. Oh my God, Maria, that's like half of Thanksgiving though, is like cutting up the Turkey when it gets to the table. How is my dad's supposed to prove his masculinity if the bird is already cut up? Simmer down Rebecca's simmer down. I can't listen, I'm sure your dad is a man of reason and science, right? Yeah. He's Ramirez. And the science says this is the best way to get a delicious Turkey. Come on. Okay. I mean, explain it. Okay, so Kenji Lopez alt says cutting up your Turkey is the best way to overcome the great white meat, dark meat problem. You know, the well-known fact that if your dark meat is cooked, then the Turkey breast is dry. Right. Right. It's because you have to cook these two different types of meat to different temperatures. So on the one hand, you have the breasts, and they have to hit a 150° or so. On the other hand, you have the legs and thighs and they have to get all the way up to a 175°. So by the time the legs hit the right temperature, your breast is over cooked. Not so Happy Thanksgiving. It actually all makes more sense when you think about how turkeys use their bodies when they're alive. Yeah, and obviously think about that all the time..

Republican Winsome Sears Challenges MSNBC's Joy Reid: 'Get Your Facts Straight'

"I know we shouldn't spend a lot of time on MSNBC personalities. But what the lieutenant governor elect of Virginia has done with one particular odious talking head over there, joy Reid is magnificent. This woman's story is astounding. She immigrated to the United States from Jamaica had a tough time it was in a Salvation army homeless shelter. Got out of that challenge and that that pressure and that toughness and that hard life, U.S. Marine ran a women's shelter, served her state as a delegate now is elected. She's the number two elected official in the state of Virginia. First woman of color to hold that position, it's a magnificent story and joy read thinks Republicans like winsome shears are racists and white supremacists somehow, and dangerous. So yesterday I saw winsome Sears on Martha McCallum's show on Fox News. This, to me, sums up everything of this week, it sums up the collapse of the woke agenda. It sums up the this was a collapse of the this was a repudiation of the Biden agenda. We all know it. They know it. James carville knows it. A Democrat strategist been around forever, and he knows how the game is played. And he said, woke this is crushing and destroying the Democrat party. So I give you winsome shears on Martha McCallum show yesterday on Fox News with a very heartfelt challenge to one joy, read. You have to be willing to vocalize that these Republicans are dangerous. That this isn't a party that's just another political party that disagrees with a thumb tax policy. That at this point, they're dangerous. They're dangerous to our national security, because stoking that kind of soft. White nationalism. Eventually leads to the hardcore stuff. Your reaction to that, miss Sears. I wish joy Reid would invite me on her show. I'm let's see if she's woman enough to do that. I'd go in a heartbeat and we have a real discussion without joy. Speaking about me behind my back, if you will. She talks about white supremacy. Does she know that I ran against a white supremacist? I mean, joy, come on, get your facts straight.

'Believing Is Seeing' Author Michael Guillen on How Science Led Him to God

"Science. It's nothing less than astonishing. When you realize that the idea, most of us have heard in our lifetimes that faith and science are at odds, is not even slightly true. It is in fact the opposite. It's hard for us to shift our paradigms. But we need to, as I said, I write about it a lot in my new book. But a friend Michael gillan, we've had him on before, has a new book out on the very same subject called believing is seeing. He's a real scientist. Michael gill and welcome. Hey, Eric, it's so good to see you again, my brother. Looking forward to our conversation. It's great. It's great to see you and to talk to you. I love talking about all this stuff, especially with somebody who knows about it the way you do. You really came to faith later in life. You had been hostile to faith. And now you're writing books, explaining to people that faith and science are friends and that this is a lie that they're at odds. In the book you talk about how the latest discoveries in neuroscience physics astronomy, mathematics. Point to faith in many ways. Talk about that because I mean, what do you mean when you say neuroscience? I'm not even sure, do I know what neuroscience is? Signs of the brain. Yeah, yeah. It's a study of the brain and, you know, I remember when I was at ABC News, I did a story on the Harvard brain bank, which is the largest repository of human brains. I think in the world, certainly in the nation. So I went there. It's Ian Massachusetts, not too far from Harvard. I was also teaching at Harvard at the time, so it was convenient for me. And I remember being able to hold, they allowed me to hold a human brain in my hands. And even to this day, Eric, it was just a really weird feeling to think, you know, this is the essence of what we call humanity, if you will. Never mind discussions about soul and the spirit. I mean, this is where our personalities. This is where we reside in this two, three pound brain. And the human brain is made up of two hemispheres, the right and the left. And a lot of studies have been done on that. And I talk in the book about I think it was in the 70s when scientists physicians started treating patients with epilepsy by severing the corpus callosum, which is the cable like it's a very thick cable of nerve fibers that connect the two hemispheres. And what they found was that when they, when they cut the two hemispheres, when they separated the two hemispheres like that, the epileptic seizures stopped. Not entirely but to a great degree. But there were some interesting side effects. And that's what I deal with in the book because ultimately I connect that research to my exploration of faith. It's a little bit complicated and we couldn't do it justice here, but I will say this much that when you when you look at these what we call split brain patients, these are patients whose hemispheres have been separated. They there's a lot of interesting side effects. For example, why quote one woman who goes grocery shopping, she's a split brain patient. And she finds that the two hands when she's reaching for groceries or putting groceries in the basket, they fight one another. And what I explain in the book is that what we've discovered from split brain patients is that our two hemispheres are basically at war with one

Lorie Loves All Things Creative but Colorado Wants to Censor Her

"There is a case in other case in Colorado and it raises an interesting question. Our Colorado courts, particularly goofy or is it just a coincidence? Well, a few months ago, the tenth circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Colorado officials could force a website designer to create custom website celebrating your viewers that goes against her biblical beliefs. Lori Smith is a website designer and she wants to create website celebrating the biblical view of marriage that is between one man and one woman. But if she does so, Colorado would punish her if she declined to create website celebrating a different view of marriage. And so unlike she looked around, she saw what the state was doing to Jack Phillips and she didn't want to be punished before she found out her constitutional rights. If she sued, and three months ago, the tenth circuit Court of Appeals said she could be punished for exercising her First Amendment right now to express a message that goes against her core beliefs. I'm quiet because I'm actually assimilating what you're saying. So according to the courts in Colorado, a person has to actively celebrate, for example, same sex marriage if they believe, even if they believe that religion demands that marriage be between a man and a woman. Do I have that correctly? That's what the ten circuit recently held that if Laurie Smith creates custom websites celebrating biblical marriage, the state would force her to also create custom websites celebrating differences, including same sex marriage.

"Real them back in and bring them back. Reality of these are responsibilities. That i also out front office job as hard dynamic. Is there anything that you've learned to help you with like the balance or is it just speaking up an advocating for yourself I've learned to speak up and advocate The squeaky wheel gets a So i learned to not requiring where you have to stand up for yourself and you have to be assertive to get things done. I'm not afraid to make phone calls in to find the right person for the job and to find the right person to answer the questions that i have. I think that's the part of the reputation that i feel. Which kind of gives me a different perspective Being a woman in the military rewind ho-how while my husband would we are in a transportation company and a support battalion and then we both moved to the forward support company. An infantry battalion sadry's all males up until very recently there's very few females still in the infantry so i've always had to assert myself and make sure that i'm respected in that battalion and and taken seriously so built this reputation that i'm reliable in. I am not afraid to get things done. I'm not afraid to stand up for myself. Wherever i'm at in a i think that's how we allot Very successful huron leadership in my career. I guess i've i've learned that you know i. I've stood up for myself announce that now i've reputation. I i can do the job and be responsible in a lot of leaders and other unit members. Look up to me. Four for answers us really great. And it's all about advocating for yourself and speaking up right and also taking on the hard job so i went to a classical. Vc vehicle crew valley leader so in the country especially in the stryker infantry you have to be qualified every year in order to fire weapons off of your striker using the remote weapon system the are. Ws there's a range that you have to go to a year and qualified just like your individual weapon but you have to use the stryker vehicle as your weapon so there's the remote will joystick cannell. Unlike know how to use the nadine ee on these things and now how to tactical about it as well i went to this course to become the evaluator for all these crews in i learned a lot about tactics a lot about the injury going through that course in. I think there is a little bit of a nervousness in the battalion. I became the galleons. Evaluator so i would evaluate everybody in the talion to make sure that they are all tied for to be. You know goner and they were a little bit nervous because there was email on. They weren't sure how the other male infantry guys we're going to receive mike criticism especially i failed them. If you qualify. And what i found was i was very intelligent and i spoke intelligently to these guys and i was very helpful in teaching them the correct tactics before they went out to qualified and available to guide and lead them to be successful and then they respected me like a whole bunch more on. They came to me with questions instead of going teen leaders. Which comes a little bit of animosity but everybody you know started to respect me as actually intelligent in tactical you know have a technical knowledge base. Yeah 'cause you're you have the expertise and you didn't just keep it to yourself. You shared it with them and you try that. Set them up for success and so they trusted you because you had already again that first step. Yeah and i and i really like the guys that aside the fact that i was a woman i wasn't in the of the tree and i wasn't you know a grunt out on the Out on in the field ranked Even though those things that they shared amongst themselves they respected the fact that i was able to teach them and guide them and the care. If i was a girl or a guy or whatever they listen to mainly sought at my advice yeah when i deployed unemployment infantry unit and i had a similar experience where they were like your call me the precious cargo not but they saw me as the because i was civil engineer and the expertise in that field and they knew that my job was to go and inspect the buildings and their job was to keep me safe and do all the tactical stuff which is exactly what it was and it didn't matter that i was a female. I mean that's why was the precious cargo. 'cause i mean that was like their nickname for me to make i like my call sign That they gave me. But i always felt respected and like part of the team and they did their job and i did mine and we worked really well together. That's one of the things that are really loved bouts military that we all work as a team and i don't know very few instances of any tort type of sexism racism or anything i think in my experience everybody just accepts. Everybody as they are end uses. Everyone's strengths in acknowledged weaknesses in. We work graders attained together. Military is really good at looking past those things probably still have some issues here and there. But it's good that in your experience you've had such positive experience rating so is there anything else from your time and that you wanted to talk about or we wrap it up. I think we touched on pretty much. Everything yeah. I feel like we covered pretty much everything. I like that you talked about all the different schools that you've done the different ways that you've served and kind of shows like all the different opportunities and the flexibility in the way that you could serve and the guard and an you barely touched on having a civilian job which is what most people typically think of so. It's really interesting. But i have one last question. Which is what advice. Would you give to young women who are considering military service or wanna. Keep the recruiter in me out of this. So of course. I'm going to suggest any missile any female academia research looking every branch. The are what you wanna do in. Don't be afraid to take the lead. Don't be afraid to challenge yourself. It's one contract in. The military is not very much time. Six years is only about seven percent of your life so it's not much in. It's a fantastic experience to have to grow your confidence to grow your your knowledge base degree career leadership skills. It's you can't go wrong in the military. I believe in. I think it is. If you're able to absolutely hate that jump takeaway challenge yourself and give it your all. And i love the quote by joseph cambell which is when you come to a great chasm in life jump. It isn't that far you're saints. But yeah that's a really. I think that joining the military camp phil scary and few women reach out and they're like i'm nervous. Does that mean. I shouldn't do it and i'm like no. That means that you should do this. Being afraid isn't a bad thing. It's immunised a challenge. It's gonna be hard. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't do it or that. You can't do it. i'm so just chump and you'll be amazed leave new. There's lots of people they will catch you at the other end. Yes that's great. I love that. Thank you for your time. I really appreciate having you on the show. And i'm excited for this to go. Thank you so much.

"Life a lot easier especially as an md soldier them. Yeah that's really interesting and the different aspects of lake. It's four thirty or go on how it's the active duty whereas like no you states or extent right and then from technician ben. Gosh i did a whole bunch of school. So i was able to go to try out aerosol They told me a week before the air saw course i have slot for it and i was not prepared in. I just got back from annual training. So i was like not in super great shape and until i'll go but there is no guarantees that make it through. This and i was on zero days announced certainly with that. It is a nice little experience for me to go to this class. But it's not on my goal list. But i did want to go to pathfinder's in the tag at that. Time did not like to allow anybody to go to your school. Without first trying aerosol. So i try to make it better pay then i got the chance to go to pathfinder in as difficult as the school is in prestigious. I absolutely loved it in such a great experience. I've learned so many things. But i'm really proud because last time i checked in the completely be wrong now but i was the only female pathfinder in pennsylvania on the pathfinder what is that so the pathfinders on their motto is i am last out so back in one or two whatever they were the ones you were dropped in the middle of the woods and they had to walk around in survey the land in Down the trees and figure out where they could then have troops and equipment in food and everything dropped into drop loans they were the ones who coordinated with the air assets to bring in sling loaded system like if they need vehicles job somewhere or personnel or They also talked to the they said helicopter landing zone on drop zones in sling load is their main priorities. And there's this one of the combat jobs that wasn't opened a woman before twenty sixteen or has it always been opened woman. So pathfinder is not a job. It's a special skill so just a an additional skill identifier. So there's only a few. Emma west is that are able to go to pathfinder school. It's very prestigious through. Graduation rate is like twenty seven percent less than one percent of the entire army. Is pathfinder qualified at some some really low low percentage. There's a very prestigious accomplishment in the army. I heard of it and i guess it makes sense if not very many people in the army can do it and then the graduation rate is so low. There's very few and so. If they were going to use your guys a skill that you learn what they like handpick a team to go overseas and then scott up land and fill in all the holes kind of generally each battalion may have team but a brigade have a pathfinder team and they would just pull you from your job and the team would be burn example. We would set up all the helicopter landing zones or aid stations. Though for any air medevac. Smell that we already established you know we would look at the land layout and look at any obstacles or anything in markers out for a helicopter leaning zone we also are a sling load certified to inspect them so any sling loaded equipment or fuel events water limits or crates or cario. Nanning or anything like that. Were you know certified inspects that sling load to make sure it's safe to travel the air. Let's just so interesting. I didn't even know that specialty existed in the army. And it's pretty neat that you're one of few if not the only woman and pennsylvania's national guard that meets that qualification. It's one of my very proud. So after he went to that school then. I also want to master finish trainers in One of the things that i actually developed a lovin passion for because joining the army is fitness and wellness in nutritional that So i love going to master famous in Great education greet experience. And it kinda catapulted me into my current education track of becoming a yoga teacher in the now. I'm in my master's program for nutrition science and we'll be able to go back to school using your gi bill so in the national guard. You don't get on eleven gi bill unless you're deployed or spend time on active duty but we are entitled to the montgomery gi. Nelson's a stipend while you're in school. So i but in on top of that we also get state money for school. Education assistance program will pay tuition towards any state school or any other. You wanna go to the same dollar amount into san. Yeah i think i. I knew that there were like complicated rules with the garden. Reserve around the post. Nine eleven gi bill. But i didn't understand that that the montgomery gi bill syllable. Anybody who hasn't koi. Darren tells montgomery so if in the future you got to pointed would give you the gi bill or since you already is montgomery would not well so after. I was technician for a while. Then i applied for what we all agr jobs so then i was hired on as an active guard reserve which is active duty which enabled me to have a gi bill. Post nine eleven. So i actually do have post nine eleven because of my age your service. After i was technician for so long then i applied agr job when i was hired in the retention is retention nco or to talion for field artillery regiment. In the infantry stryker battalion so i handled all retention related questions. My really love that job. It was very fulfilling. I was able to help soldiers out by finding them the benefits that they needed making sure they were getting their bonuses. Paid making sure that they are getting their student. Loan repayment payments on time. I was able to help their families. Out by linking them up with all these different resources in and i really loved that job of successful. I made a lot of friends. That's do like really cool. Things during my job with anos resigned as recruiter. So here. I am now as a recruiter so you went back to the beginning. Because isn't that what you started in here. You're right But now not just seeing a recruiting assistant or a from manager now actual mission recruiter. I went through. Qa four which is recruiting school back in the spring and the interesting thing about my current situation is also right now. Six and a half months pregnant makes the job a little bit more interesting. Yeah it's not not the military stereotype for sure when people come in. And they're like wait. You're a woman you're pregnant. I always being pregnant on the military is the biggest hip secret. You just have babies Time yeah that's i mean there's not a lot of women and then a lot of women either get out when they have kids and so the amount of pregnant women that you see in the military is.

Www dot sabio dot l. a. to learn more and now let's get started with this week's interview. Welcome to show tell you say here. Exemplary amanda. I'm really excited to talk to you today. So let's start the interview with. Why did you decide to join. the military are unlike. Just say our typical. Why did i join. But i guess it's a little bit atypical. I always thought about it in school. And i thought that the military was like maybe something that everybody who had a. Why should do was very patriotic at that point in time. But if you were to ask anybody who went to high school with would be military. They would laugh at you. I was not. I was not into a bunch of clubs. I worked all the time. I was social little bit but not crazy. But then i went to college in athens per semester Expensive it was also high school I had a boyfriend. He did not want me to join the military though in college. I would no longer with this guy in. I said you know what it's time for me to join. The national guard. Sounds like something. I could totally get into than i was very much. Like wound howard. At that point in time i likes to break barriers and do them the mainly things but the be good at it as so i called my recruiter anna. Probably the easiest recruit. He's had a while. I was like all right when they go to the we everything out. I left medicine like three days and the save the night history there and enlisted then got back and then i told my family that i enlisted signing. Tell my mom. She was like very bent for a week Toward that i listed She was not exactly happy but now she realized how much helped me that. She's very proud. We now i mean. Listen eighty mike. I scored really well as in my Basically you know anything. I wanted to be otheir was the wide open doors for me but i chose eighty might as it was a short training for eighteen and decided interesting to drive trucks Navy mike in then the good thing about eighty mike is it opens the doors for anything sincere analyst or any school. I can go warrant from there. I didn't realize that at the time but it being eighty might has a lot of opportunity especially promotion in going to different schools schools in the army national and eighty. Mike is a truck driver is your yes sir. Your air force army as a mike is treasury up. The you are the one you moves all things. Let's go back a little bit and talk about. You said that you didn't tell your parents will before you into maps correct. Nobody knew that. I enlisted until after i had already done the and everything came home and they are wondering where i would where i was for the past few days and do you think that you didn't tell anyone because like you said that your ex boyfriend and high school didn't want you to join the military and so you were like i'm doing this. I'm not going to let anyone talk me out of it right. I didn't want anybody that gives me that notion of like. Maybe it's too dangerous for you or maybe should doing this or you're smarter. You should do something different. I thought about it and it was something i wanted to do. And i'm so glad that i made that decision to go ahead and jump and light year was lane joined. That was in two thousand nine. The we were still at war and it was a dangerous time. My mom was very nervous at the beginning. I have not deployed. So i have this for me is unfortunate that i haven't because i would like to deploy in and get to have that experience that's why can join the military and all that but i have not had the opportunity your national guard right so the first three years of my initial. Listen i i spent your typical. We caught em day. Which is you're drilling soldiers. Each one one weekend a month and then a few weeks in the summer for your annual training. But then i got a physician. I guess i wanted the national to be kind of like a hobby like something. I did on the weekend in get paid hobby. And it's patriotic paid hobby. But then i found a full time position within the national guard in since two thousand twelve. I've been full time in some capacity for the rest of my career. Thus far so i started out in recruiting recruiting assistant in be recruiting storefronts kind of office manager. I was hired on as a technician and in the army national guard. The technician program is one of the best kept secrets in best opportunities. I believe so. It's a hybrid position. You're actually federal civilian uniform civilian so you have to maintain membership in the national guard in order to be hired and have the job. But you're paid on a sibling pay scale and you get a federal benefits. Everything's you can actually collect to henderson's if you're gonna retire from both programs. Federal and the state you know national guard pension. So that's what you did when you first after you've finished camping. It and started drilling. Yes nine fight for jobs. And i got it. And i worked in recruiting route three and a half years and then after that a very short time about six months i had a civilian job but then i got back into recruiting for a few months in a position at the field maintenance shop here in my town in. I will work supply in parts and tools in that kind of thing. I feel maintenance shop they are. Here's as stryker brigade though. The shop works on strikers and we'll vehicles and all that stuff. So i was in charge of a couple of million dollars. Parts is a truck driver. You get to do a lot more than just stripe. Chuck's correct we have kind of a hand in everything we do. Everything was supply wise. So i know delivering supplies in a lot about ammo especially To make sure compatibility because we're the ones who hack it unloaded and drive all day. Ammos they need to know a lot about it. We need to know on about us to find manzo to make sure all of our troops. Are you taking care of instead. Ends while have water and everything i think truck driver and i'm like o'casey drag trucks but you're telling me all these stories like this doesn't even sound like truck driving succoth you very much. So i'm preferring to be called a logistician because it's all logistics out making sure what trucking nowhere with what capabilities with what types of equipment. That is a better description. I like that makes more sense. I like that. So you switched from being Civilian on the weekday and then a guard member to active guard. what was that transition like. Was it like the same thing. Just your uniform or was there more challenges. I think when. I became a technician. So when you're technician you're not active guard. You're still a technically an md soldier. Beat during the monday through friday. You're still federal civilian employees. But you're just wearing a uniform and so as a little bit like civilian life. You know you're heavier set hours and all that so it's not like duties learning can be like well. We still need to just stay here at work. At four thirty we dropped wrenches. We go home to union job you now but it's still very much the military la- mindset so you're around all of you guys who are in your unit with you talk about a t talk about treating you keep up on your online trainings in your things like that. So it made army.

"We're back with alex carroll discussing her recovery journey with an eating disorder. Let's talk about a day in the life of treatment. What was that lake. Were you in an please. Pardon my ignorance where you in a room with. Other people with anorexia. I'm trying to imagine what it looks like in there and one of the things that you said earlier is still sticking to mind. Which is you looked the part so therefore people helped you. And i just keep thinking. Well i know what those walls must look like. Because i saw a movie about it and i'm realizing that that movie was probably way wrong because even in that movie young white women with only one eating disorder. It's much more complicated than that right. Oh yeah absolutely so. I think the first thing and if anybody is listening and thinking that going to treatment is going to be like what you see in movies of a padded whitewall or at being very much like a hospital that was not my experience at all day in the life there. We would wake up in the morning fairly early around six thirty coming from college. That was very early. And there are people of all different backgrounds all different ethnicities ages and it was incredible women who were in their forties or their fifties and then there were younger men. People had alenia. Binge eating disorder anorexia. It was all different types of eating disorders and it was people at different points in their recovery. I came in really needing weight restoration and there were people there who had maybe hit their restoration weight and they were in maintenance and i am so grateful for that experience. That was the first time that i had been around so many diverse people and they taught me so much hearing what their experience was like and that was incredibly eye opening and amazing for me. Honestly we would have our three meals and three snacks a day we would have group sessions and not cadet than anything from dbt or act therapy. It could have also been sex and relationships and how that ties into our lives are mental health and are eating disorder having groups for family therapy we would go to these groups that could have been about fifteen to twenty people but then you would also have your individual therapist your individual dietitian and you would have that personal time with them. You really just get to grow as a person in so many different ways. You're there completely to focus on yourself but you're also there with so many people that are battling demons just as you are and who can really understand what you're going through. I don't want to minimize this. But the way that. I like to compare what treatment was like is to summer camp except you probably cry more and you have worse gas pains and that sounds gross to some people but when you get into treatment. There is very little privacy in terms of bodily functions. You have to show the bathroom monitors the toilet before you flush because they will check to make sure nothing was in there. That shouldn't be as if you had gotten sick or used any kind of disorder behaviors but they were also tracking your stool. I came in very malnourished. That also meant that. I had not had a bowel movement and a very long time. And it was gas pain to the max while your stomach with getting used to having food and it again it was celebrating your i b. m. it's kind of fun and you get to a point where everybody's in this together and you have a good time and you have free time where you can play games and get to know people but it's not a walk in the park. It's not and you'll learn to going in there. You think that you have at the worst but then you're sitting there and you're talking to a mom whose missed out on major points and her children's life because of her eating disorder. You will be talking to a young man who was an athlete in college who he was no longer able to run. Because he was so malnourished. It's very eye opening. How long were you at the treatment center before you were released and then my follow up question to that is. I'm assuming that the day that you left. The treatment center wasn't wasn't recovery. That wasn't the end of treatment. What's what's next. I was at the eating recovery center for about two months. When i came back to richmond i was in partial hospitalization so i would go there in the morning and leave probably around eight at night and repeat the next day and once i was in a place that my team felt like i could be more free living on my own and still going to treatment four days during the afternoons outpatient treatment that actually fell at the same time as when my spring semester at my university was beginning again what i would do was i was taking a light schedule and then i would leave campus at five. Pm go to treatment from five to nine and then come back and do my work. It was hard. I was doing that dance for about a month and then finally i was released to the care of my team back on campus and i would see my therapist once a week. See my dietitian twice a week. The psychiatrist once a week. I needed that. Because you come out of treatment and how this freedom again and you're eating disorder can run rampant if you let it and that's very common so having my team keeping me accountable constantly after i was out of the facility treatment that was where the real work again that. How am. I going to fight to maintain that recovery. And what have the last few years since you've reached recovery been leg. Do you just get to forget about it. Is it all over. Does it take monitoring maintenance. What is life in recovery from anorexia lake man. I wish that i could say that it was smooth sailing and i have been able to manage it into reality that but an eating disorder thinking that affects me for my whole life. I try to compare living with an eating disorder to somebody who went to treatment for alcoholism when they leave treatment. It can be hard for that person for years to come..

"She is awarded her freedom but this is one of one of two cases that starts getting the virginia assembly thinking about about how they are going to codify racial based slavery because in sixteen twenty two. Excuse me sixteen. Sixty two virginia makes it a law that the status of the child is the status of the mother thereby codifying this kind of self perpetuating enslavement through kind of a of match lineal process exactly so elizabeth key having been enslaved. Her mother was enslaved. Her child listen slaved. And so this you know. It's it's it's wonderful for elizabeth key and her family that she wants a court case. Virginia thinking you know we we have to. We have to do something. We have to start figuring out You know however wind codify this really at a very much impact in on the rules in the laws around slavery and it shortly thereafter that to that marriages like hers with her english husband. Her husband's name was william. Virginia also makes makes mixed race marriages illegal. That law does not get overturned until the loving case goes to the supreme court in the nineteen sixties. So that is how long were having these conversations. When i when we first started speaking about you know kind of our you know our modern You know current events very much being legacies of the history that were you know that we're dealing with that. Is that gives you an idea of how long You know those. Those stories persist not just in the history books but playing out in people's lives. The women of agenda lived and worked on strict rules and laws. Kate an. I had an earlier conversation when i visited the jamestown settlement exhibit of tenacity. We talked about those rules in how they influence day to day lives in the sixteen hundreds and further into the lives of women and people to come. I want to share some of the conversation that we had from my visit to the tenacity exhibit which featured many of the first women virginia honoring their lives and contributions to what would become the united states of america. So we know from one young woman who skimming now with abbott. Who doesn't really love situation here very much.

She is caught and she's beaten but she's witch five hundred times with something that must have looked like a cat and nine tails but it's tipped with fish hooks and it kills her. Her body is actually found A couple of yards away From from the doorstep of of The the gentleman that she will the man that has the indenture over her.

They're working tobacco fields They are working right alongside of everybody else to keep that cash crop going This is a boom period for tobacco here in virginia. People are making a lot of money. Your me know very quickly And it's obvious that tobacco's a very labor it's it's easy to grow. I mean in terms that it will grow anywhere there are writings about tobacco growing in the streets. But it's labor intensive harvest the drawing the road in the tobacco worms off. I mean it's just yeah. It's an emits year round process that requires that akita time and labor yes. The work was very very hard but so was the punishment for things. That really should not even be that important. Things gossiping about that punishment. So ducking is a punishment That is associated predominantly with women It was a punishment that was levied upon reviewer found guilty of something called brab alling is seventeenth century. Gossiping one of my colleagues say it's seventeenth century. Fake news com hard little opportunity to advocate for themselves to create change for themselves and they took every opportunity that they could but sometimes the only thing that they had was their voice and so the men that were was found a way to legislate against that voice and to make that voice punishable by law. And this was the way that that they punish women. So this contraption that you would actually be Strapped into it was then lowered into a body of water and you're sitting in it lowered into body of water and you are duct up and down in that body of water. I certain number of times at certain increments based on what the court felt was you know was was appropriate to the crime. He may have committed to move your hands. You're strapped in grappling with the law. We know that this actually happened in virginia. And we know that because there is a gentleman who was visiting One of the one of the counties in virginia and he's writing back to governor new england and he says hey. I just saw this happen. It's sixteen thirty four. I believe and he says this woman was found guilty of traveling She was strapped in the chair and she's actually ducked Up and down in in the waters eyewitness account and he says a great. What what a what. An interesting great punishment whichever look into doing this up in new england. This law is actually on the books in virginia. It's actually ordered that every county and every county courthouse have a docking share along with their stocks and their pillory there at the courthouse. Oh so couple of things. We know that this happened in virginia. I want to make sure i get. The nameless has happened to a woman. Named betsy tucker. We know that this happened. Because i would account which means that what it was mobile girls. So i wanna point out to you that this is public shaming. So here's what we know about betsy. Tucker she was found guilty of rambling. Donna what she said or who she said too but she was found guilty. She's given this punishment the court words that she'd be duct five times at thirty second increments each public shaming to not so much the punishment of the person being punished as to create fear in the people that are watching so that they one hundred percent change their behavior so we know from that record than they actually do this five times until she screamed. Let me go go. By god's also more And that's that's that's in the right.

"Didn't try to kill myself in high school. I just couldn't imagine someone telling five euros here and it's not coming over anymore. What are you going to do differently with your daughter surrounding mental illness and mental health. Discussions mean shall learn pretty young that every morning every night mama takes some medication what was goes through my head. Is the one percent chance of getting schizophrenia. In the general population. When you have apparent schizophrenia. Ten percent not just scares me. Yeah i just really can't go there right now. So now being a mother and a partner and working and having a young child and now we throw in a global pandemic as well as having schizophrenia. How how do you juggle. All of these factors. Aaron i totally by live in hannah. Buckle world all last year she she was coping she was ab which means all. My energy was taken up taking care of her. And i didn't notice the world events as much they just weren't as immediate. Everyone says twenty twenty one stores share but for me twenty twenty I honestly cannot imagine what it would be like to live through covid nineteen and have delusions and hallucinations. Can you talk a little bit about that. I mean this year with Being born i have never been so consistent with taking medication. I could not bear to have to hospitalizations Not see her all day every day. So i am so consistent with that and what. i'm on now. Long subpoenaed vilify. I've been on it for a number of years. I know it works. You're listening to look again mental reexamined. A podcast brought to you by the schizophrenia society and partner organizations. I'm your host major aldridge. This podcast would not be possible without the support of the entire community from the bottom of our hearts. We want to thank you for caring about mental illness together. We truly can make a difference. Welcome back to look again. Mental illness reexamined. Thanks for sticking with us. And here's where we left off. I'm speaking with aaron hawks. Meru a neuroscientist. A wife a mom who also lives with schizophrenia. Aaron we were just talking about the fact that you're a peer support worker with the vancouver coastal health assertive community treatment otherwise known as the act team you help people through mental health and addiction challenges. Why is it so important for you to give back in this way and for you to be a part of the act team. It's so powerful to say to someone. I know i know what you're going. And yes my clients. And i have vast differences in terms of socioeconomic status and type of symptoms. And all that. So i can't say i know to everything in their lives but some parts that canvey. Yeah i know that's like and the responses have been really a not. That's making a difference in their life. As i mentioned earlier. you are a published author. Your new book is called neurons tell stories. A layman's guide to mental illness and health. So for those of us that have it. Read your book yet. Tell us a little bit about it. And the main cred is my clients stories. Mental illness also mental health. And i'm just putting out their hypotheses but what might be going on in their brain or some literature behind different experiences so i have very typical mental illness. Chapters like police in delusions addictions paranoia. But then i also talked about things that are but mental health such as trust like why do people trust music appears per work in what is trust in the neuroscientist world. Things spirituality that most people don't burn up with their clients. It's a touchy subject. But i found love talking about what they believe in what they don't and why even have a chapter on so many my clients always buy by the coffee. That's what they want. And so many of them say queen had the copy in the park. So i can have a smoke at the same time. And there's no science behind putting a cigarette mcafee together so it's a little bit of everything. I read a quote that you once gave an interview erin and i'm sure you talked about. The senior book says well. And you said i don't like the word recover backwards. I like that. I have my own opinions on that statement but i would love to hear your thinking behind that statement. So what did you mean when you said that while recovery is trying to get again something used to have so. My favorite analogy is wake like even if i reach on the bathroom scale. The weight had prepregnancy ever covered my pregnancy weight but my body composition inch into proposes different. I haven't really recovered. So i like the discovery which looks forward says okay. What do i have right now. What can i do with it so if you could go in time to your diagnosis way back. When did you ever think that you would be where you are today. Yes and no well back. Then i hope to have four children. Just like those quadruplets. Can i love having the the little brewed around me all the time. Assad myself having a bigger family by for lotteries that didn't happen. I had grieve not having a big family. But i got to rejoice in that i do have hannah and so i just pour everything into her. What do you wish someone had said to you to give you hope in your darkest times. Just that there is hope would have been really powerful to speech my own Worker if i had to hear them say you know. I wanted to really rough times to and yet. There's hope letterhead dark she gets in. Have someone saying yes. It's hard it's going to the heart that there's hope what is hoped mean to you now china before she was born i had one of the delusions ahead when other a two main that i had one was that i was going to set off a bomb somewhere but it will be good because i would be the one sacrificed and saved many canals. Believe that i should commit suicide. Not because i was suicidal. But because i figured well it'd be six or seven orden's aca donate in say six or seven lives for my one that makes mathematical sense. But as soon as hannah was born like those just went away Hanan needs mom aaron. Thank you so much for speaking with me today. I think you are an incredible person. Your courageous and brave and an inspiration for all of us. Whether we have schizophrenia are not you truly are an inspiration for all of us and i know that your story is coined to give people hope and dispel some of the mist thorough.

"It showcases old school man of courage and conviction. But i really haven't lived up to it. D'artagnan is telling the promiscuous young king that he can devote his life to one woman and man for it which is a half truth. A paddle on on the personal development path of seduction will have so much more to grow if they resist their provider instincts to settle down with one woman. Don't let the mainstream relationship covers. Confuse you being a single man. Dating and seducing different women is more challenging than being in a relationship being in a relationship is comfortable in fact it can be so comfortable that the real challenge is resisting the tendency towards mediocrity and getting lazy about the personal habits.

"Heather mcghee spent years as an economic policy wonk and was president of demos from two thousand fourteen to twenty eighteen. Transforming it into a think tank that describes its work as race forward. She just published her book. The some of us what. Racism cost everyone and how we can prosper together in it. She said out to analyze. Why white americans believe in a zero sum racial competition. That's the idea that progress for people of color comes at the expense of white people and she uses social science research to show that. This belief harms everyone. Heather it's great to have you on our body politic. If so great to be with you tell us about the time that you write about in the book where you're twenty five and you have a sort of a moment where the race class narrative clicks in for you so fat nearly twenty years helping to build and then being president for four years of progressive economic think tank called demos and i was just a young economic policy. Staffer and i was working on the issue of debt. Consumer debt household dead should most credit cards mortgages and i was in the russell. Senate office building One of my first. Lobbying visits down there. We were trying to bring our economic research to policy makers to show them that it was going to be a very bad idea to change the bankruptcy laws as the credit card companies. Wanted to make it harder for people who had lost everything to get a fresh start. Get back on their feet and we felt like kind of hat. We had the math right. We we could make the point that this was just a really bad economic policy decision that it wasn't personal irresponsibility. That was driving bankruptcy. It was these structural issues our economy and people just haven't borrowed to make ends meet and we came in with our numbers and i was wearing pantyhose. You have to wear pantyhose. Dc you did at the time and they kept slipping off. And i remember. I went down to fix my shoe. And i was close to the bottom of a door that i could hear a voice and it really sounded like it was the senator senate office building sound like it was the senator the way the people we're talking to him and he said you know the these they. They haven't these babies by multiple mama's than they are using the government to avoid the personal responsibility through bankruptcy. And it was you know he didn't say anything about race he didn't say he's black man. He didn't say these brown men. But it made my heart rate feed up right in the hair. Stick up on the back of my neck. And i had this moment where i felt like. How did i spend all this time. In this predominantly white world of economic tanks and economic research. Forget one of the first lessons. I ever learned as a black person. In america bat the majority of white people have you pretty negative views about our worth in this society and that that more than anything helps explain why majority of white people support a political party and ideology that is bankrupting. The country that is leading to us being unable to handle the pandemic all of these dysfunctions that so many of us are scratching their heads. About why is it. That america can't seem to get its act together. Why can we. Not as i say in the first line of the book. Why does it seem. We can't have nice

"In the FBI theon or that helped you to get through some of these situations which really tense. We'll certainly yes. We are trained so we have to know the law We are. We spent a lot of time focusing on how to develop your judgment in a situation and to evaluate everything. Not just the words coming out of someone's mouth but but everything around you to determine what your next best steps are going to be so there's a lot of developmental work that goes on with that not only in the academy but throughout your career in fact it's a constant learning experiences an FBI agent. Excuse stop learning at some point in time. You're not going to be nearly as effective as you could. A big so in terms of skills I would say also developing your interpersonal skills and learning as much as you can about other people to this day. I don't Do A podcast have a phone call. Go to a meeting without doing my own research of about the people or person that I'm going to be engaging with and that's just not some of it comes when you're in the FBI from defensive posture so that you and everyone can be safe but in reality any of us will be much more effective in what we're doing in our daily life if if we learn as much as we can and if we observe if we're not the one constantly talking if we sit back and we listen and we watch sometimes those moments those situations provide far more information and can inform the decisions we make as leaders then we might otherwise if we were the one talking well. Doing your homework is so smart. Martin I can tell you are a good listener. I have a feeling Lauren. I'M GONNA ask you to hold your thoughts just for a moment. I want push shift our focus because I I'd like to talk about emotional intelligence in leadership and as you may know because I think we've discussed discussed in previous conversations. I embarked on a year long research project. They call it my millennial passion project and to you know to find out how through my one. On one interviews with millennials that they feel leaders especially on social media are lacking the care the understanding understanding the compassion really the empathy. That's necessary to have a true relationship and my team and I. We built an online online tests. So that all business professionals contaminants how they feel which stands for face your fears or be more more open and inclusive engage with empathy. That's empathy parts use ethics and good judgment in unleashed the love. And before I give the where to go for the tasks asked I just want to ask you a question. How can leaders be more empathetic in situations and maybe in your what steps can they take to do this first of all? I'm delighted that you're doing something like this. And Listening Leno's we could all learn from that and from them but it's absolutely critical because if you don't make an effort to understand how someone else feels or consider how you would feel to be on the receiving end of what you're saying to somebody then we're never going to be as effective as we can be as leaders in the career that I had for much of my adult life. You know it was surrounded and it was focused on being tough and you know being in charge and being the person who could take somebody's liberty in life away which leave me is the most powerful thing on the planet and the trust that people had in me was extraordinary and not abusing that power is important important but I think equally important is that emotional component of it and that compassion if I can share one quick shore situation with you that I think beautifully illustrates this. There was a situation where we arrested an individual for what we will call the white collar. Crime thing writing bad checks so so violation of the law but nothing in terms of what we see some people do and as we dropped this first off at the jail we were getting ready to leave my partner and I and this individually arrested called me back and my partner was basically like Oh ignore him. Come on we have to get going in more colorful language anguish than that so I turned in you know now some colorful language back and I turned back to the man we'd arrested and they said what you need. How can I help you? And he he said I'm really cold. Would it be possible to get a blanket I said of course it will. So I went to the sheriff's deputy. It was running the jail and I said he's called hold. Would you please bring a blanket. Sure no problem and I waited until I saw that sheriff's deputy bring the blanket and handed to the man in the cell the tiny moment and about six months later. I'm standing in the elevator at the federal building. Crowded with people and a man looks at me and he says hi. How are you doing and I look at him? He said you don't remember me and I said I'm sorry I don't he said well you arrested me. And it's one of those moments. It's you're like okay. How are you but he said this to me? He said it was the worst day of my life. But you treated me with such dignity compassion. Forget you for that and all about that blanket compassion kindness human yep. They are not at two to one another. They have to go hand in the end. If you're going to be an effective leader they must go hand in hand to be an effective leader. Absolutely absolutely thank you so much for sharing that story and to everybody who is listening or watching women worldwide. You can now take contest to see how much you feel right. Feel I in your communications. So face fears engage with empathy. Use Ethics in your good judgment in unleash your love your passion by going to feel I. Test Dot com this test. There's four parts eight eight questions in each part so yes thirty. Two questions sounds like a lot goes very quickly. But ultimately it's GonNa score you in each part to see how. How will you do and if you scoring low in any area? The test actually recommend exercises so the new can feel. CEO More because we need more feel to balance out all of the other the strength knowledge the intelligence and what leaders have we need that he hugh component so warned. Thank you so much for answering the question. Let's dive back into our a discussion. So you know we talked about you getting into the FBI what it was like to go through the training share a story when you're actually in and then somewhere along the line you made a pivot to start your own consulting firm so maybe he wants your little bit about that and why you're doing what you're doing now. Yeah absolutely and I think in the telling of that. There's another important in point in terms of suggestions that they have for for fellow leaders and that is this we often stay in our own lane in our own sector in too many of us rarely go outside of it and so what. I'm doing today and my focus. Today is completely a result of a leadership program that I applied for competitively with the International Women's form through their leadership foundation and that put me for the first time in Group of all women number one number two do with no one who understood my world the world that I was living in on a daily basis and initially I thought I don't know about this And it turned out to be an extraordinary experience. It exploded my world open in a way that I couldn't have imagined prior to beginning that program in completely informed what I do today. I took that year that included time at Harvard Business School and the Judge Business School in Cambridge Cambridge in England. And I took that time and the resources that I had with my fellow classmates and with all of those around us who were providing the instruction and Guidance Haydn's to figure out what I wanted to do next and too few of us whether we're in the FBI or whether we're in business take the time to really consider what is that nextstep. Look like what do I want it to look like. And I think it's critical that we spend some time on that and we we focus on ourselves and understanding banning ourselves in where we WANNA go next and so that experience was was pivotal for me I it it showed me in such a brilliant way that getting outside my own network my own lane and expanding well beyond two women not just in the United States but around the world was only ten out of twenty seven women in this class US born in the. US Wow so they were from Africa. Asia the Middle East Europe. And what I saw in that environment is that for as much as we may think that we come from different cultures and different careers and different religions at the core. We are really all the same and that might sound trite some people. But it's the reality and I saw the incredible richness that my life got I got personally from engaging with so many different people who represented so many different cultures and businesses and it was so helpful to need because they looked took me differently than.

Initially what my parents neither of them graduated from college. My father went to a year of college. My Mother did not at all it. My father was an aircraft crafts mechanic. Whether a homemaker they always encouraged me first of all to read. They were both avid avid readers. In so did that but I remember when I got an allowance as a kid. They talked to me about at saving money so I could go to college. Your isn't always always known that I was going to go to college. And so that's always got me in the mindset that I was going to have a career and going to be actively pursuing intellectual activities bats. It was so supportive in so helpful to me as a kid and did lock him. I you to politics come. I wall was definitely not I. Okay I the politics the change maker in you was what I came to Action and my dad said Actually made the effort to have me meets the company lawyer for the company he worked for because until the time. I was contemplating WASCO. I hadn't really met a lawyer. That's funny I was a political science major in college. And when you're graduating with a political science degree there aren't that many options unless you go to law school the law has been a tremendous career choice for me belly open so many doors there are so many different possibilities of types of move activities should get it all good law gives you an opportunity to meet lots of different people become involved in their lives. Hits when you're getting to know your clients and getting to know the problems that they might have or the dreams they they might have. It's an opportunity to walk in other people's shoes. The certainly the was has given me the opportunity to do that. And when you were a young girl and you saw the the smog cloud over Denver. What was it that went through your mind? What what kind of activated in you? If I was it was at the time that we were starting to hear about environmental. We'll issues as I was in high school. They were passing some major laws. The Clean Air Act the clean water act we were. We're discussing things like population bomb. It was a time when there was a lot of environmental activism and even as a high school kids I went to some meetings in so forth about environmental issues so it was also important to me that my parents and I spent time in the mountains. Whenever we had a free weekend my family would head up to the mountains? Wander round hiking and looking at the beautiful views news. Those things were always important to me and it was what got me started on the path. Ah I into law than into natural resources in in Birmingham told law and being involved with the issues that I ultimately don't for the Secretary Interior Awesome. You I mean. Let's talk about this journey into because you are now for two very significant I. I was the first woman elected Attorney General of Colorado and you were also the first woman appointed secretary of the US Department of the Interior. What what was it like to? I mean first of all how did you land in those roles and then how did what was it like to function in those roles that had been previously held only only by men. I got S- Involved in my my law practice Initially I it was with mountain states. Legal Foundation GLENNA FART whenever cases is representing the legislative leadership leadership of the Colorado General Assembly and that gave me the opportunity to meet some people who are actually involved in Colorado politics. Excuse me I. I was libertarian. For Awhile I was very concerned about freedom about giving leaving people individual opportunities to pursue their own dreams outs making sure that Preserved the constitutional basis for the freedom in our society Eventually intially I ended up going to Washington. DC and working in the Reagan administration as the Chief Attorney for the National Park Service and fishing of lobster. Know Awesome. How cool? It was decimating job when I left Washington I thought about running for the Colorado Legislature I my husband to sit said look. You've been managing attorneys the position in Colorado government that is most in clogged in bandaging. Attorneys is attorney general right not to run for that right my husband I spent months. I'm driving around the state. We aren't my parents station wagon. He would drive while I would sleep in the back. We did the real low budget campaign but I love it ended up winning. That's so awesome. And so what. What do you attribute winning two as you did? I mean obviously you did the hard work you were on the road you were doing it from a very roots oriented approach. What do you attribute went into in in that year? I think it was partly people were interested in in seeing a change. There were the the the previous trade or the incumbent attorney general had switched parties and so so people were upset at him about that it was also just the the amount of work that we put in in some ways. I never quite sure whether being a woman helped or hurt from what I heard Sometimes net discouraging side things there had never been a woman serve as attorney general.

"one woman" Discussed on Diane Rehm: On My Mind

"Wade the famous abortion case, she's a. Reagan appointee. She's said that the abortion is personally abhorrent to her. And he thinks all my gosh. She's going to be the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade goodbye abortion. He wants writes a note to himself. She is just against abortion wrong. She ended up being the one who preserved the right to abortion in a more limited way. She did. She didn't buy Blackman's complex reasoning and Roe v. Wade she allowed there to be some state limitation. She came up with what they call the undue burden standard, the state cannot put an undue burden on women's right to abortion the effect of that though was to preserve abortion at a time. When a lot of people, including the author of the abortion case thought, it was done for she did that because all she did find abortion personally, appoint she understood that the country was divided about this that there had to be a compromise their head. To be some way of giving the state some control, but not doing away with this basic, right altogether. That took some maneuvering real maneuvering politics secret court politics, but she pulled it off. How did she feel about the qual rights seven? This is also classic O'Connor. She introduced it in the Arizona legislature in nineteen sixty nine I think it was nineteen seventy she is reduced it. But she let it die in committee. And the feminists were furious at her for that they thought felt betrayed. Why did she do that? She knew it didn't have the votes, and she knew that it was going to pick a Utah fight and have blood all over the floor for no good end. Whereas as a legislator, she could amend state laws one by one to get the gender bias out of and she did hundreds of Arizona. State laws that had gender bias. She made sure every single one of them was amended. So by working locally, she got the job done without getting into a huge fight that was gonna produce nothing. So why did Ronald Reagan choose her as the first woman on the court? There were no other women. Judges in nineteen eighty the law is avert was was a very male thing law firms were all male there. Just weren't women lawyers today. I think about half of law schools are female that is Sandra started that revolution. I think eight hundred federal judges and nineteen eighty I think six were women. Well, there was one of the qualified a woman in Cornelia Kennedy. But she was kind of dull and Reagan wanted somebody liked and Sandra Connor was likeable relatable. They they in the interview they he Reagan started ask about abortion, which is going to be a loaded. Oh, but he stops. He never actually put the question to her. Instead, they talk about ranching in Reagan's. I'm tempted to say fell in love. You know, he's certainly liked her that you could see the body language in the photographs, and she was a good politician and chief seized her moments and one moment came when she's asked to go on a boat trip with the chief Justice of the United States or burger and lake Powell and nineteen seventy nine. And it's a social thing that a friend's of is a friend of friend of a friend, but she and her husband immediately know, hey, this is a chance to advance her career. And she charms up that chief Justice like crazy. They stepped to o'clock in the morning talking and she made the most of it. So he became a promoter. The chief Justice and lobbied President Reagan on her behalf. There are other. He wasn't the only one has it happened Justice Rehnquist secretly lobbied on her behalf. Now. This is interesting because our little scoop in the book in nineteen fifty two Bill Rehnquist than a clerk for supreme court Justice ask Sandra Day to marry him. Oh. This a secret that they kept all their lives. Neither Bill Rehnquist nor Sandra O'Connor ever told their families about this. I discovered it because I found a box of letters not inner papers, which are in the library of congress. But in the supreme court, it was just a box of letters that have been tucked away. And they're fourteen love letters from Bill Rehnquist of Sandra Day, they were law school classmates. They were law school classmates at Stanford and they had broken up after a romance their first year he was going to clerk for supreme court Justice..
