Brendan O'Neill's Advice for Getting Involved With Issues That Matter

Brendan O'Neill's Advice for Getting Involved With Issues That Matter

"About the average person that the taxpayer, the citizen, the person that listens to the brand and O'Neill show? Do you give them advice? Because for me, it's the same thing every single day, I say, get involved politically. It's sexy to be a senator. It's sexy to be a president. The thing that really matters is to do what my wife did last week, where she handed in her application to run for the board of the local community center. That's where politics really, you know, to use that Catholic phrase of subsidiarity. It is all local. What advice do you give to people who are fed up don't have a podcast but want to help? Yeah, I agree. I think getting involved at any level is always a very good thing to do. And one thing I've been inspired by over the past year is the parents revolted in America where you have all these parents groups or individual parents going to PTA meetings and school meetings and saying, look, stop teaching our kids about critical race theory. Stop indoctrinating our children into transgender ideology or identity politics. We don't want it. And I think that parental pushback has been a model in some ways of how ordinary people can get involved in these kinds of issues and can make a real difference. I think one of the problems in the UK is that there were so much pushback from the chattering classes against Brexit that people thought, well, you know, we voted for change and it looks like it's not going to happen, and it took 6 years for it to actually happen. So people started to lose faith, but I think over the past few months, as we've come out of lockdown, as we've rediscovered normal life and as we've seen war erupted in Europe in a terrible, terrible way, I've heard lots of people having discussions about the need to be more serious about our nation's life and our community life. And I think people should try to do that in any way they can, including by getting involved at any level of influence and that they can do. And that's really, really important.

"Programs, and that's just name a few. We have many position statements and resolutions on different things in education. So it's probably way broader than people may realize. Has there been any significant changes in the organization during your time as a member? I just become more aware of how the advocacy part of PTA is evolving. And like getting involved with legislators and things like that, speaking up for children. Great. How does the organization connect to the community of parents and guardians? And how do you go about growing your membership? Every year PTS has a membership drives in the beginning of the year. And encouraging parents to become part of the PTA so that they can get involved in their children's education and activities in school. So they have a membership drive they tell them all kinds of activities that there's going to be incurring every parent to become a member. So they can help not only the financial part but also help physically throughout the year with children. Now, what role do you see the PTA taking in the diversity equity and inclusion dialog that is taking place in schools across the country right now? Pennsylvania PTA takes its takes its lead from national PTA. And there's constant position statements. They have a very strong diversity equity inclusion program and statement on that in our family engagement programs and other programs throughout the schools. So, you know, they talk about the critical race theory and anything else that may be involved in the schools and how we should handle it. Okay. And how does Pennsylvania PTA strive to make the organization a place for everyone and make everyone feel welcome? I can speak.

"Field of vision merely extended from the french. Revolution's inexorable mutation into jacobinism to perhaps the russian fascination with french liberalism's inexorable slide into the communist revolution. Or whether maybe just he could just see further. Perhaps even than that. Where two american liberalism's steady logical descent into well. I'll say marxism but for there's a prior step. And that's what this whole thing is about the connection between materialism in the naturalistic outlook. That is the given. It's the received view or it's told to you over. Msnbc as we'll say a minute right when they trot out there experts that this is the received view that we know this now that the story is told right. The story is told so when you read. This novel by dostoyevsky and you follow the plight of this character in the forces that he's up against in the way that the the pressures of these forces affect his character given his proclivities and his weaknesses in his desires. And all these things. It's like man. It's not hard to see. I'm talking purely now from a narrative perspective from a psychological perspective. There's there is this interesting connection between the sort of pure academic materialism and naturalism and the more social consequences of the off. Shoot of those things politically socialism and the extreme marxism. That was a really wordy. That's not the connection. I said this is about two quotes. I just wanted to talk about this book. I want to read to you to quotes. Now what did i say a little bit ago. I'm going to blow your mind. Even at my low energy level of this bogus as i'm going to blow your mind with two quotes. Why are these two quotes going to blow your mind. If i can find them. They're going to blow your mind because they come from to utterly disparate people with seemingly if our connection that we're trying to establish here is yet established with seemingly disparate purposes and and concerns and goals.

"More moms go in together and have conversation with the teacher, maybe the teacher will be open to allowing the boys to stand up and kind of get The Wiggles out. I know that might sound really simple and silly, but it makes a tremendous difference and then how boys feel even about school. You know, it occurs to me that these conversations happening at the PTA level and at your PTA meetings and when you talk to the other moms on the playground, there's so much power there. It's pretty much the moms of the PTA. Some of them are also going to have boys when you start having these conversations. Again, you realize that it's not just your son who's affected. It's a lot of them. And guess what? The moms of the girls don't want the boys being disruptive in class, either. Exactly. Yeah. Exactly. As a teacher and also as doing professional development with teachers, teachers don't know these things. And so when and often, I will have PTA, the PTA president come to me and say, hey, come and do some professional development with the teachers. And teachers are glad to know this information. They don't know what they don't know. And it makes teachers lives easier also. It's like, oh, you know, oh, I wish I had thought of that. I didn't know. It's not taught on a university level. It does come through professional development, but I'll always ask teachers, you know, have you had any training in gender differences and how boys are in the classroom and how girls are. And there are very few hands that go up. So this is a lack of professional development for teachers. They don't know. And then lo and behold, the miracle is, oh my gosh, this sounds like my husband. Oh my gosh, this helps me at home too. So it is just this opening up of understanding of how another human being operates. And I think, too, that we can't because of I think the cultural climate that we are in right now with the me too movement and all of that. I think it's been hard for for women to use their voices to advocate for their boys. Because there will then automatically almost be a perception that you're against all of that. Whereas, frankly, it's the exact opposite. It's like, because of what I have experienced as a woman. I see that if we don't talk about this, if we don't advocate for our boys, that we are going not necessarily from sexual harassment angle for boys. But just from the angle of, we've labeled them. We talk about them being aggressive. We talk about them being predators. We hear that over and over again. These boys are labeled by the time they're in middle school. They're not being allowed their full humanity. Exactly. For girls and women for so long. And that's where, as women as boy moms, I think that's where we can help provide.

California Parents Rise Up After Teacher Suggests Students Pledge Allegiance to LGBTQ Pride Flag

"Have to ask a question jennifer. Because it's it's news for me it's conservatives like but in california this story of this teacher who asked her students to pledge allegiance to the gay pride flag. Is that a story a tool or is that kind of buried. No it's actually become a story. This is what people don't realize in california. I think they're really underestimating. That there are a lot of moms who are fueling. The recall of gavin newsom. Because they are so disgusted with where the school system is and You know a lot of them. Were really given a wake up call during the pandemic when they were watching their kids become educated and these stories are coming out. They are making news now. They aren't front page headlines but you can find them which i think is a good thing in california and here's the wonderful thing school board meetings anything where parents can get involved the pta meetings. They're blowing up. I have a friend who was always kind of a republican but never really got involved and this last year with critical race theory with stories about these teachers running amok. She has started to go to oliver. Pta meetings to the school board meeting. She started to organize other moms to do the same thing so that they can go and rally against critical race theory and mandatory mask mandates. The children go just elementary school. And it's picked up power. She told me when she first started this that it was fifty fifty people on both sides of the aisle kind of protecting critical race theory against it. The same thing with the mask mandate now. She said that her side of the aisle is starting to really increase in size. And it's picking up a lot of momentum and

Jelly that's laying in sega. Have you had that shit on top of cream cheese. Oh yeah yeah no. That is also good. Japan we do is street cream. Cheese is cut up khumbu like seaweed on top and it's like a deck in thing with the salt from the seaweed and the cheese under underrated bars snack. That i got over there say seaweed is overrated in every capacity elderly. Wow taste of them. I like those sex in when you're in the ocean and touches your legs it can go fuck itself fucking cal help is just. That's my help was raised on like like screensaver images of what like oceans look like in. It's always clear. So i remember as a kid sitting like like a kelp bed in a thing all this place dirty now is not the see. This is some growth. That i don't wanna do. It is kind of a. I think give it a bit as nature's bubble wrap he. Does that count. Yes especially when you come to this. Yeah yeah come to the shoreline and You get in trouble for smacking your friend with it on a beach trip. The just watching giant kelp forests like kinda sway in the water is also nice a nice battery peaceful but again i can observe but i don't interact from shit raw. The jersey shore ocean sea monster. You scare your kids i do. I do love A nice little crispy sesame flavored seaweed snack a dangerous for kids. I almost died. I don't know if i said that before as a kid i would. 'cause it's a snack. Asian people eat like nori. You know snack. So i remember. I've would fucking eat just sheets that shit. But i remember i was like four and i i took maybe three seats more than my little tiny asaf windpipe could handle and it basically turned like a dental dam over my and like my mom had to grab my ankle like fish. It out of my mouth like get your ankle. I don't think there's a whole thing about inverting choking. You know so she was. She was she has that. Like superhero. moms strengthens enough. Got it out.

I think that you could use that as a dental dam a backup family right and very attractive looking to your mouth coating film for both of our safety there multiple times. I almost choked to death. But i would have successfully choked to death with my hands over my head. 'cause that was the thing that my mom was made me do your head if i was like coughing early choking onto i forgot about that. Did we face that out. I don't. I don't think it does anything. It certainly didn't help me. Maybe it calms you down or something. I don't yeah. That's like. Because i remember in the nutty professor at one point one of the brothers is like choking. She's like lift your arm up. An like real yeah. It's just a more in truths about choking raising. I hope you have a lot of medical tips from nutty professor. Because that's a good place to or for both really solid places. The medical advice. I think it says raising the hands above the child had stops the coughing or choking. This is a myth. It says raising arms when someone coughs might actually make the situation more. Dangerous emotion of arms influences the motion of the child's neck and trunk and turn the food causing the coughing can shift and block the airway. A so. maybe a you know what the are they were doing the best they could for sure test. Anything you think is under it. Yeah mine's also have food and it is the salads at pizza places like just an iceberg salad like just some shitty icebergs shitty italian dressing couple croutons of pepper. Cini like that kind of a situation. Just very very sparce carrot shavings chunks. Yeah yeah i all out of a can. Yeah i've really given up on a healthy salad personally lately.

They're just like hon now. We should question that. Shouldn't we interesting. Is that going to help your kid like no dad list to me up so i can read the disclaimer museums for the plaques. Absolutely yeah yeah. I didn't learn a fucking thing to museum as a kid. I was like it was basically like still life. Tv dinosaur bug off right right pictures of old boob when dukes had hair.

Where they're like we're not gonna play it but rest ask yourself. Should we be doing this letter. It becomes anti-black for cigarettes so mice registry. I recently searched for where to stream the simple life l. You can buy episodes ano- pay for this. Yeah with. I'm willing to because i've got a real hankering to watch the belief that's probably also problematic. There probably isn't up because the disclaimer yet. Yeah they don't have a plaque in front of the simple life but there it will it will be necessary probably feel errors is having her little para renaissance. Maybe people can look at it with kind eyes. I just remember how much they would make the fucking people they lived without uncomfortable with. This is kind of great but also tone-deaf but it it was back 'cause that's one of my favorite periods. Television is just when like there was nothing more amoral than just what was going on reality. Tv like they were just like fuck it. How far can we go with everything in a great television. Yeah with when they put all those kids on an island and just like them tied. They've called here's five doctors with everything that's wrong with you. Yeah kid nature kidding. Asian island is better. It is they call it lord of the fly i know right. We already have the lord of the flies. The reality show oddly child with classes and asthma did die tragic similar to the book. What is something. You guessing is overrated. Tomatoes boom put it out. Go ahead expand on that. I just think that they're too prevalent. And they they don't they don't taste good unless you out bunch of shipped to them and i think that should they should stand on their own and they don't does be okay. So you're all. Your beef is only with naked tomatoes. You're not talking about the tomato sauce here. I think tomato sauce is the only thing i accept but any other forum catch up either i guess catcher but it's like is that tomato really. That's like barely a tomato way to be like yeah. I had my vegetables retail ketchup packets with it. Like some i can't remember but some Shitty whatever organization lobbied to like have ketchup count as a vegetable in kids lunches strain. I remember that too and so like they could so they could just serve as much garbage as possible and they're like catch up it counts right. I yeah tomatoes. I don't eat on there on the same way like as a kid. I hated him. And then i learned to respect him on a sandwich. Because i'm like oh with a bunch of other shit. And i love salsa his with a bunch of other shit and all have like appraising salad. 'cause with a bunch of other ships for like my mom will just like slice it tomato up and just like house. I mean there are people who do that. Honestly also i. I obviously was reaching. I really had a hard time. Okay so to me. Out of the shadow ratio i personal. I hated tomatoes as a kid too. But then i became a vegetarian when i was a and i was like well. You can't be a vegetarian and not like any vegetables. Tomatoes were kind of i. Think about like mind-over-matter rows like you just have to make yourself start liking tomatoes and being more. I'd rather than being intersectional too. I don't think i've ever enjoyed a like cherry tomato or grape tomato. I think those left would have grapes. Weren't sweet and tasted dirty instead. Is we already have for that. So yeah yeah. I guess suite you just want some dirt taste tests. What do you. What do you think is over it for me. It's gotta be kia. That's going to bring it home. I ate that place so much. I've never been happy in a nikea. I've always regretted it. I find it exhausting confusing and labor intensive frankly Yeah all this stuff is like a price where you're like. Should i spend more to get a thing. That isn't a piece of shit you know just like a little bit more. It's a weird confusing thing where you think you're saving money but it's not worth exactly exactly like are you saving money if you're buying those furniture. Yeah tobacco you're definitely fucking the earth Because like when you see all the clearcutting. They're doing in romania and places like that to get that. Would you like mister mind. I guess i don't need this eck doll shelf anymore.

There's not a train from. Yeah the the cafeteria to like the end of of the league is definitely like arc Archetypes in ikya. It's like the the kids who just got their first apartment like young people who are gonna get some for the apartment and you see those people you see that the new couple. That's just moved in together and inviting you see the exasperated older couple with children who have lost track of their kids but like they've like don't try to another level of distance where they don't care and hoping they leave them there. There's probably mom your mom. I always she never buy anything saying launder. Yeah she's like this but also like it's so confusing it's like to me. It feels the same as being like a parking structure. I don't like being not disoriented. Like give me a target through target all day long. Because i know where everything is i feel like i was designed by the same people who design casinos to make it hard for you to like figure out where the exits are just like for as long as well just like intentionally disorienting so time disappears and you get out and it's like the next morning somehow impressed when you see people that work there like cut through the because they they know the fucking layout and they're like yeah right through here and you're like are we.

Professional Poker Player Bryn Kenney on Being 'The Best'

"Of our reporters wanted to know what you think about this new ranking system. The poker go came up with and really just to know like does being seen as being the best. Is that something. That's really important to you. And i do want to throw this out there even for answer because i remember probably seven years ago or something like that talking to you. We had a nice conversation the pta and even seven years ago. You told me. I am the best like i'd invest so to me. It feels like for you. Maybe it doesn't matter so much what other people think somehow inside. You always knew you were the best anyways but does does all of this sort of cloud and trying to stay at the top. When he mentioned which is important to a lot of people is. Is that something that you value anymore. Really at all only the the real value that i have behind the is that i think i'm a great ambassador. The game and i loved the game. And i wanna see grow. And i wanna see it highlighted in the right way and i wanna see people who were there to have fun and play actually have fun play so even when i was like climbing those charts. I would always be the person that when someone new comes into the high roller c in like a businessman or so. I would always like kind of welcome him into the arena. And because i love that you know you want to incorporate like a like a good environment so that the game that you love can grow and you know these. Ten k twenty five k. fifty k. events. That happen every day. I have no interest at all in that because that would be pretty much saying that you know my focus is on poker and having that title or winning more money there which i really have no interest in but at the same time anyone who thinks that they're the best you know whenever a big tournament comes around. Let's say two hundred fifty k. By super high roller bowl. Like million dollar by and just like the last one you know. I'm just. I'm ready to put my money where my mouth is against anyone at all times and if they think that you know because i haven't played in the last little bit that they're more prepared than i am than no. There's only one way to prove that you know. Throw in a bunch of money into the fire and let's see what goes

Don't You Want Somebody to Take Care of You?

Terrible, Thanks For Asking

Don't You Want Somebody to Take Care of You?

"Okay so you just got a couple of questions. We're going to get into that okay. Yeah totally i'm nora. Mcnerney in this is terrible. Thanks for asking. And that was gina and when we get into it. We're going to be continuing the conversation that we've been having about care with gina story is a story about a lot of complicated emotions about the long tail effects of being thrust into a caregiver role when you're still a person who needs a lot of care a child but this complicated story starts in a really simple place when genus parents met and fell in love They were summer fling. Was like maybe nineteen sixty nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy vietnam war was going on. I think there was like a lot of looking for a better life. Like you know like wanting something good and they dated over that summer and then they were married by like the day after christmas that same year. So my sense is that they were kind of idealists like they were looking for some sort of happily ever after and for awhile. Genus parents found it. My mom was a homemaker and my dad was kind of a rising star in the computer science world. he was an academic. He was teaching at georgia tech in atlanta. Which is where. I grew up and so early. Memories are that you know my mom cooked and was crafty and volunteered with the pta. My mom really loved to so she loved to bake. She's a beautiful woman and my dad was very intellectual. Like i remember him reading like not totally age appropriate books to read allison wonderland to me at an age when i didn't fully understand what's going on there so much in that book didn't understand but i loved the fact that he would read that to me and he would sit down and explain to me. How telephones work and he liked teaching me about prime numbers and stuff like that at a very young age i think he just really enjoyed sharing that aspect of himself with me. He liked kind of dissecting things and thinking about things and asking questions. And that's something that. I've carried with me into adulthood. He kind of taught me how to dig deep and think about stuff that you might not otherwise. Think about gina was the second of three children. Her older brother is named allan just like a sweet sweet kid like he loved playing with matchbox cars and he would line them up. We would watch movies a lot together like he loved watching lassie and old yeller and stuff like that. If it involves a kid in a dog he could watch a movie. Five times in a row of my mom lead up every single time. He said he would laugh at every part like it was the first time you ever heard it or ever saw it and same with music. You know at some point in our childhood somebody gave them like one of those yellow sony walkman and a bunch of tapes and he would walk around the house with like headphones on and plane his tapes and singing and his very loud very slurred speech. That was like the happiest. Alan loved country music bing crosby. He loved christmas music all year round. It was just gina in allen until their little brother andrew was born. Andrew came along and i felt like almost like he was my baby from the beginning and like i think i recognized from a young age that he was like my ally and my playmates. He was you know a playmate that i interacted with. He was very imaginative. And we do the things that kids do where you like lineup. All your stuffed animals and teach them school or we would do these toy. Parades down the hallway and like throughout the whole house. Where readers just like lineup. Every single toy we own and then just like march like it was a production. The genus relationships with andrew and with allen were different because allen andrew with different. I was aware from a very very young age that i do things at allen. Couldn't i was three years younger than him. He and i kind of learned how to walk around the same time he could talk but his speech was really slurred. And so i knew from a very young age that like a lot of people didn't understand what he was saying. But i did like i kind of interpreted for him a lot especially in public so i think there was an awareness on that level lake. He's older than me. But i think i always felt older than him like. I knew that he had a lot of medical stuff. That was very mysterious. He had some seizures and would have to be rushed to the hospital so i i was very aware that like he needed a lot and there was something wrong.

You are not the lowest common denominator

"Warehouse members and as such every month. We get a magazine now. Several years ago this costco magazine was the only magazine. I read cover to cover. The articles were brilliant in depth filled with great information and advice and then a couple of years ago. They made an announcement that they were changing the focus of the magazine and change a lot of the staff. Unfortunately in my opinion the quality of the magazine went downhill. The articles just art that dynamic not helpful and recently there was the magazine the issue that had a couple of different articles. That really clarified for me. What i think their problem is why. I'm not drawn to this magazine into the articles. This particular issue had two different articles one on leaders which of course i'm going to be drawn to and another one on setting up your home gym which is obviously very pertinent for the times that were in sight. Read these articles. Evidently i still read the magazine almost from cover to cover. Like i used to because they still have something inside me that just says oh there's gotta be good stuff in here. There was for so many years. So i think i'm a die hard loyal fan. That just can't give it up so yes. I read these articles. What i found in both of these articles and probably some of the other ones that i didn't necessarily read thoroughly was that they are writing to the lowest common denominator. And that's what it felt like. It felt like some of the advice in some of the information they were talking about was really common sense that most people would know this and it would only be that lowest common denominator. That wouldn't some examples so in this article on leadership and how you can be successful as a leader without feeling like you have to be perfect. Some of the advice was you. Don't have to expect yourself to never make a mistake or as a leader. You don't have to expect yourself to know everything and as a leader. You don't have to try to be perfect because that must mean you're not sharp now. My work involves a lot about leadership. It's what we consult on and train on. We work with leadership teams in organizations helping them be better leaders through communication engagement feedback processes. And this just felt like. How will this article help anyone. If you are a leader in an organization any organization whether that is your company or it is your volunteer organization. It's a networking organization. It's the pta. whatever it is. How is this article actually going to help you. And the article on setting up your home. Gym fell very similar. their tips were determine. Your goals create a budget by the right equipment. I'm sorry if i'm setting up my home. Gem isn't all of that already the process. I'm going through. So is this article really for the person who is on the verge or getting ready to or is already in the middle of setting up their home gym or is it for that lowest common denominator audience of someone who might be some day in the far future. Thinking about this at o'hare some things put in your brain pan seven months down the line

"pta" Discussed on PT Pintcast - Physical Therapy

"When i bring that up what what comes to your mind a lot of things so first of all. Pta's often get mistaken for pt tax. And so that. That terminology. Sort of interchanges and i feel like that definitely needs to make a hard stop. And we need to differentiate between the two first of all second of all if i may pick on you slightly just a little bit like pt. Pint cast right. well it's physical therapy as a profession right. Yes but it's the motto is were here for physical therapists to learn and grow and all the stuff. And it's like so. It's not that you've left us out by any means not. That's not your intention to leave the pta out. It's just not there it's almost like the after. Pt pug night tonight is the profession as a whole. It's the umbrella but the as a pta. Personally i mean. I don't know if any other pta's listening could would disagree with me on this but when you look at it and you think oh pt pub. I know for me personally. I didn't join for probably three years. I didn't go to pt night. Because i thought it was exclusive to. Pt's and then somebody told me on if anybody in the profession is just comment is just getting together and chatting about the profession. And i was like. Are you sure. And then i went to one another like. Oh this is not okay. Like on websites. It's all about the physical therapists and then over on one little blurb. It's like pta's procure like okay. We're all in it for the profession but right. So how do we improve. How do we improve the make things more inclusive we would or some tactics. We could employees and make sure we're doing this tomorrow. I feel like that's something that where you just change it to as we as we differentiated in the very beginning. It's not physical therapy assistant. It's physical therapist assistant so when you're doing things like p nights pt podcast. It's physical therapy instead of physical therapist. It's sounds so minute and silly. But i feel like it just. It seems more inclusive and not having a completely separate website or completely separate web page. That really talks about all the exact same stuff. It's just it's over here instead of on the main page so little things think the theme that i'm hearing from you is think about it before you act right after right. Don't let it be an afterthought so Topic i wanted to bring up. I'm not sure we can go. You know two or three feet in this day and age and these unprecedented times by the way. If i never say precedent at times again be here for it but talk about a specific specific impact of kobe. Nineteen on just it's like how. How is this. Let's make sure we're more inclusive. How maybe different than than physical therapists. Yeah it's it's really so again. This is a splintering conversation. That could go in a lot of different directions. But so back in june i pulled on a group of. Pta's i had. I had Responsive about four hundred sixty Response that basically showed a roughly nineteen percent of them were unemployed directly related to cope in august. Saint people were polled same response and it was about thirteen percent so there were fifteen percent of people who are unemployed but thirteen percent were directly impacted by kobe. The other So it was about sixty sixty percent who were employed full time as an aug but their roles change so they're not doing clinical work anymore. They're doing things like temperature taking admin work calling the patients like things like that so yes. They're still working. But they're they're not doing the p. t. a. role so it's a huge impact on employment wise for the for those reasons but also with all of the budget cuts and everything that's coming up. I also feel like that was a little bit of an excuse to get rid of the pta like they've been thinking about or contemplating laying off or not or not utilizing pta due to the budget cuts and then cove it happen. And they're like well sentences down. Guess we can't hear you know. We need people to evolve and discharges. Here's your door. Sorry and that was a little bit nicer way. And that just makes me so mad from a business perspective that you don't value the pta. Enough that you. I don't know that you'd rather have the pt you so it's really been tough for pta's out there cohen. What do you think will happen. What's what's your forecast. For the next six. To twelve for physical therapists assistance. So pendulum swing completely. I think because right now we're seeing where. Pta's are not being utilized but then we're gonna see this huge influx of people. Coming back. there is already. You're already seeing all the patients in clinic from being sedentary for the last six months of low back pain and problem so now you're seeing the influx in that. You're also gonna see those. Kobe patients who are just coming out of the icu and recovering from covid. Who need to get back to their daily activities. So you're gonna have this huge burst of patients whose treating like your before kobe. You already having a few dac. Ten twelve eighteen twenty patients in a day. And then you're going to get rid of the pta. Expect them to come back and do that. Same productivity in that same volume. I don't i don't know how So i think the pendulum swing. I'm hoping it's a pendulum. Swing was back that you are going to be needed and that. The budget cuts won't matter as much because of the offset of the of the productivity. I'm hoping it. I crystal ball. I would love it. That's a good question Wishes came so so what was the. What was the statistic in terms of. Pta's who were at in your poll that were out of work directly due to kobe. What was that ballpark figure. In june it was nineteen percent who are unemployed in august. It was about thirteen percent of those who responded. Say for everybody but we compare this with. Pt's just just to say like hey. Is this impact in the profession. And then where did you do that. I didn't i was focusing. I was doing a p. t. a. advocacy talk for the ap ta and. I was also doing it just to kind of broadcast. Pta's on some of the social media sites. I seen so much. Doom and gloom of like wealth lost. My job headed off to nursing school now and whatever so trying to show like yes. There's a big layoff. There's a big unemployment but sixty percent of you are still employed so it's not that doom and gloom did not compare that to tease. I wish i had or theater met national averages and stuff like that and like you know you can get into baby rabbit holes you can get rabbit holes with the statistics on one class that i squeaked by to get into a pt school in the first place. Statistics definitely hired a tutor for that one. But it didn't ask anything. I didn't bring up that you'd want to share with the audience or anything we didn't cover more. I just feel like we just need to get our voices out there for pta's overall Especially like more representation. The ap ta the representation as bare but were were nonvoting members. And i just feel like if you're going to bring a public member into the a pta on to have a say on the board of director executive level than you should also have pta. Who's actually has a foot in the game in this whole thing. I just feel like there needs to be that we're starting to get there. Were starting to have those conversations that i feel like more of us need to show up to bolster this conversation and get it going. So all right Well what what could i do. Let me ask me as a specific pointed question you mentioned maybe the name of the show collusive and again the name of the show was was actually created by one of my roommates and pt. School over a beer at a bar. That no longer exists in arlington virginia. But it did it really. It was pt as a profession physical therapy as a profession own. We've gone out of our way in the last couple of months only because honestly to be a dead on us why we didn't have more on the show or.

"There are limitations to what we can do. yeah Eddie chemmy into it. Same time. It's ptsd to be able to stand the ground. Absolute professionals i would not want to work with someone would not not someone worked for me. It would work with someone who wasn't going to give their honest opinion. I think i would. Personally i would feel like i was be missing out on insight. You've got experience. I don't have even if it went to the same school for life experience. You probably have seen different things. That's an advantage attention to that. Chima new yeah absolutely. I mean everybody can bring something to the table and you know we should be able to feel comfortable and confident to To stay that t t you know. Hey you know. I don't really agree with this treatment. Or maybe not even. I don't agree with this treatment. But could you explain to me your rationale of why you want me to perform this treatment. Because here's my understanding of it and this is where i think it will lead to. What's your rationale. And maybe your understanding of it will show mean that you're looking at it from a different angle but also my perspective of you know especially those. Pta's in who've gotten those patients for the last ten visits so the pt has done the email and then the pta in the last ten visits. I've seen them progress. I know where they're at. I know where they are going and heading and where they are are not making gains. So i don't understand why this curve ball is here so i don't have a pta. Have a problem with that communication with the pt but understanding that at the end of the day. It is the ps decision so having that standpoint and being but again opening that that line of communication that dialogue everything you just said there is about communication and relationship again. Like if you're listening or watching we're paying attention to the basics and if we learned anything in pta scored the basics are the most important thing to pay attention to and this is about language like You know. Walk me through your thought process in this. That's not confrontational. Help me understand. Better i do. I don't. I don't know if followed i want to. That just says like. I'm willing to come to where you are right now. I'm willing to meet you where you are And letting someone see your y as it did not here right. Yeah it's all about the wiley peaking your head that's another good one right how we understand. Pick into your head. What are you seeing. That makes you want to do this. And then like maybe. You didn't see it like going honestly like this for the podcast listeners. It's really bad to do physical gestures for podcasts. Are ross and leaning in in squinting eyes and saying like why doing you're never gonna win also doing in front of the patient out which direction i don't care which direction never great idea ever ever ever like you cannot. If you're trying to have a figure that out in front of the patient now the patient really doesn't trust you and they're like i'm out taste different clinic thank you. You're out. Yeah tone of voice matters as well smell coming in there. Yeah i mean that's that's you know this is. This is where it comes into my background. Right you've got verbal nonverbal and para verbal so you got what you're saying what you're not saying and then also what you're saying but how you're saying it. I really value your opinion casey. I really value your opinion like those two things are said differently. And we need to understand that and respect that communication so you're talking about microfiche microaggressions within the clinical setting within the team. What happens though. This is a great the great suggestion that just came up from from jimmy pini. He mentioned no one asks. Pt's when they're going back to school so like how do you handle this because you know everybody outside the clinic. We can't educate everyone right. We're working on relationships between pt's npt's as pto elliott inside the clinic. The whatever you do. What's the best strategy to employ here when you've got to educate and realize that this is gonna come up. You're never gonna end this flow of questioning or this is they might not be asking it micro aggression or they might like. What do you do here right. I mean i have a couple of different ways to do this. I mean if the patient is just genuinely asking me. I have no problem. Just educating them. Because they don't know they they don't. They're in some other completely like finance and business. They have no idea how the system works. So i have no problem. Educating them but i think my favorite goto is you know when someone wants to lonely. Three hundred thousand dollars. I would gladly go to. Pt school yesterday. Somebody wants to give me two hundred thousand dollars. Well i mean booth lift. I hold on but don't do that because because you went to school and you're an educated professional so like you know. I don't want you to have to deflect like that well and that's true. And so i do. I do oftentimes go to actually. I'm licensed. i'm fully licensed. I've been training the last six years like i do. I do both myself up that way. So i start with you know i went to school. I'm certified i'm licensed through the state. I had to take the same national board. Had you know go through all the credentialing all of that. So i'm fully licensed in n. Capable navy one day when somebody wants alone me that money. I'll go back to teaching school. But right now i'm happy being debt. Free miami one of my kind of it does get under my skin a little bit especially being a teaching institute associated with dp program is a when you graduate. It's like is is there. I can completely see that would great right after a while you know. That's that's misunderstanding. That's not understanding. That's your insert right. I mean i can. I can see that I don't know i. I wouldn't want my pta colleagues to have to do that like it it. It hurts of it. You have to do that. But i would say listen. Have you ever used the analogy of. Would this be good to set it up as in like physician. Physician's assistant like we're both like no do. I don't know do people ask p. As when they're going back to doctors. Yeah like i don't know which i with the p with the doctor and the pa though is people already have an understanding that a t. a. is like a graduate level degree right as our associate level degrees. And that's a whole that's a rabbit hole that we could go on for a long about education on. Pta is but pta's are just the associate level degree and you can go on and get your bachelor's or some people have their bachelor's in already on i'm working on my masters right now. So i'm i'm moving up those ladders. It's just not in physical therapy related. It's education so i can go back to the pta educator But i think i think that conversation about. Pta education needs to definitely Kick into high gear about changing us to a bachelor's but that's a rabbit hole. i do like rabbit holes. But we've got other holes to dig into today all right so that's in terms of microaggressions. So we we've talked about that. It's going to happen. So let's make sure that you listen to casey and some other tactics and like what you what you can do. Well that will that will turn the conversation to a learning experience where everybody is happy for the. I should say have a pta inclusive language. And this can. This has an opportunity to pop up a lot of places like you know even on websites are in job postings things about like inclusive language.

Interview with Tina Wu Fredericks

"Today is Tina, move. Fredericks and Tina is running for the School Board of Pasadena Unified School district, and I was just excited to meet someone who I think. Tina this is correct. This is your first elected. Effort and would like to introduce you especially to the folks. In the past school district who can vote but also to our national and global audience just to meet. Another Asian American is not going to sit on the sidelines and his decided to really get involved. So welcome to our podcast. Can thank you for having me. So you're second generation chinese-american. You used to teach public school. You've serve multiple terms on your local PTA board you are software engineer which. Blows my mind and you're you're the mom of two kids, two daughters who actually go to the USD schools. So what prompted you to with all the other things that you've done already, you're definitely involved parent why run for the school board. Yeah so I have I guess like you said, I have two daughters once ten wants thirteen and I've been ditching for a year. And one of those parents that are. Very active volunteering fundraising. Helping my daughter's school and you know over the years is been kind of the same thing budget cuts. we don't have a librarian we have to raise money for these basic enough staff and school supplies. Now, just see this repeating year after year that I've been here for eight years. and. That kind of coronated with the. I know this is. was go closures in the past two years in that was what? Was the. Last Straw you know of is like my daughter almost her school was almost closed and that's really really dramatic or. Little kids you know. So when they were closing schools like three three at a time three or four at a time, and that's really traumatic for kids in entire communities. So I want this is because of budget cuts yet due to the budget cuts and. and. There's like a fierce competition with private schools in Pasadena Area I believe we have the most A. Private schools per capita in the country. So that's an additional. Challenge for our district. Yeah, one of our previous guests maybe year and a half ago told me the history of private schools in Pasadena and I didn't realize it was it was an adverse reaction to the civil rights. Passage Act and there was all these parents that said well, even though this federal judges coming down. Out of the deep South, coming to P USDA, and saying, we're going to do bussing because you guys are segregating your schools. Then all of a sudden, all these people these groups got motivated to start these private schools and Christian wants to which you know when I learned that history. I'm I'm sure you're aware of it. I was appalled as like, Oh, I was wondering why there are so many private schools but now it makes sense it's like, oh well, we're not racist not against integration we just want to start her own school. Right yes. That it was a response to the busing in the effort to integrate our schools. Yeah. That's unfortunate. But yeah, that is you know we are feeling the effects of that. Now, there's a there's also learned in researching you. There's an altruistic reasons for you running for the school board and it has to do with continuing the legacy of your late mother. Yes Oh, you've done your research. Yes my mom and Wu is A arts promoter, she was an arts promoter, and for decades she was Camille leader. Back in. In San Jose North in San Jose. And she was quite the political activist i. KNEW GROWING UP I didn't know any. You know she's my mom but. Yes, she was really a activist and she loved A. On. Chinese culture and I grew up. Learning Chinese folk dances we would. Go to San Francisco on rehearse these dances sing songs in Chinese I didn't really understand what I was singing but. I knew it phonetically so I have really. Rich, culture grew up with a very. Deep appreciation for my heritage and I you know I think my my own mother for that and Yes she passed away a few years ago and We recently had A. Remembrance of her last couple of weeks ago and you know there. It's interesting because she is. So has impacted people so deeply that you know it just feels like. Her her passing. So fresh. And It's just strange to see grown Asian men crying. Dean coaching adds a deep she affected. The Bull. So yeah, I want to carry on her legacy of service community and. Yeah, she's she's not one of my inspirations. She clearly knew right from wrong and she stood up for what was right

"In the motivations behind that? Well, for a realistically a lot of times people don't understand the the the difference in in the classes that do the transition program. We have classmates that have been only in the professional year to. The youngest member of our classes. Twenty, three okay I'm forty five and I'm not the oldest person in my class. There's a one of my classmates has been a PTA for over twenty years. So I mean there's a wide range in ages and there's a wide range in why you know I wanna do it because I want to further my knowledge in the field some people want to do it because I wanna have autonomy in their practice. They've been working in clinics and they they see the way things are done there and they want to be able to different. So they WANNA get the background to be able to make those changes themselves that they don't feel they can as a PTA A lot of people are going in it so that they can help patients better in other going in for the right reasons, they want to be able to make those clinical decisions and and be able to create those plan of care for their patients Good. Friend of mine lives in Virginia She's A. Brain specialist as a PTA loves neuro and knows that by becoming a DP T, she's GonNa be able to help her patients more than just even if she was certified, she got a brain injury specialist. She's going for her stroke into at CS RS survive stroke rehabilitation specialist. She's going to have those by the end of the year and she still even though she knows that by getting her dpt, she's GonNa be on helper patients more. So it's it's just broadening yourself the point where you know you're making the biggest impact on your patients, which is what for all of us our goal. Yeah. Yeah and if it's not reevaluate, right? Absolutely. Calm yet. But what I've seen online people talking about this and you're really and the rest of the people in your classroom in unique positions to speak to this, which is neither one is better nor worse. People need to get that thinking out. It's not like Oh, I don this is worse I wanNA get here. So I want to throw that out of the way right? Right from the start absolutely a we are. We are coexistence partners in a in a patient's progression in the PTA could have just as big of an impact on that patients progression sometimes depending on the setting and how many evaluations in what the team needs to do could have more. You know what an acute care the PT's in the fours I worked on the PT would do evil in that I would do the rest of their stay. You know. So it was as the PTA I was managing that care and still working on. Of The P.? T.. But in our facility, we were allowed a little bit more autonomy than some in we were able to progress and talk to. Get changes to plans of care without having to do Rio thousand rebounds and rebounds agree of else. So I mean we had we in our in our facility we were able to really speak. Progress in but even with that. I would personally I'd still want to get more education so I can be better. One is not, but you have to have both you know we have to have people that are there that they have a passionate about just working with the patients and want to do that and want WanNa work with a PT It's we're interim we have to work together. A lot of times what I see is for frustrations from PT's working with PTA's or PTA repeat. It winds up if you if you question either party enough, it's the system there in it's not the provider it's not even the other clinician like individuals vary professions are pretty static it really a lot of times it's the system to the system. You just described sounds like a great symbiotic relationship, a lot of times I find PT's or PTA's frustrated from that symptom of system. Is that similar system similar? Absolutely absolutely a lot of the P.. T.. As that are in my class come from systems where they don't feel that they have the respect from their experience. I know therapists acute care therapists and other cities that are very much restrained in what they can do you know if the PT hasn't done it I, the PTA can't do at all so you'll have a patient that that the P. T. didn't decide to get out of bed so the PTA can't get them out of bed, but the tech is getting him out of bed. When it is. So it's it's this fresh you know that I. Never. Demeaning. How meeting is that as? Where person with no education can't move them. But you with the with education training in this field arnold out too because the PD. So it's it's you're absolutely right on the nose, the culture in which a person's working has huge role in whether that feels like it's symbiotic relationship this working together or that they're opposed. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's the biggest. It's the most common themes. The similarity that I see is lots it system and listen I mean if you're in a frustrating system and you're not afraid you're not here. So I would people wouldn't WanNa go to a different system or change change their position, and that's really what we're able to do. We'll talk about past experience you mention forty five. person in your class. Our thirty three when I started PT school and I found this to a thought it would be a hindrance 'cause looking around the room. People were ten years younger than me. And I was helping all kinesiology degrees and I had a degree in journalism and I don't know how this is going to help, and then through PT School I started. Hey, subjective exam op super I love this interview I love interviews. Talk about you know the. The the advantage of really harnessing past experience to make the most of either your education and then beyond right absolutely. So with me personally you, you're saying subjective I'm in the same boat as as a teacher I. That conversation with the patient it doesn't matter how sick. Oriole they are to me. You know you can sit down and have a conversation and then educate them at their level. You know I can sit there and talk to a person and and really connect with where they are in there. And change the way I'm teaching them based off by past experience in in school in the. My friend her name's Maureen lives in Cleveland. She'd been PTA for twenty years. You know when it comes to learning the skills and the tasks orthopedics therapist. Stuff for her is because she's been doing it for so long she may not necessarily under got the nuance of that you learned. DPT school. On the why but she knows the what in in a lot of my classmates bring that to the table. You know some of us are neuro- nerve therapists, I'm gonNA, Acute Therapist, most of them orthopedics. So we get into those orthopedic classes. They're not GonNa Alpar in under professor telling us. Wow our traditional students. We're picking this up this quick as you guys are because the experience level, they bring somewhat hands on experience. They know what it feels like. They know it should look like they know what it looks like when it's bad when is going on they've seen all these conditions in now we're learning that nuance on the vow you know which makes it really for most of us much easier at least in some classes.

A Conversation With Rob Feakins

"First off. Welcome to the show from joining my pleasure. I. WanNa start off with your career before you photographer and filmmaker when you were into marketing and Tell me tell me about what led you into that career. Yeah. So when I was in college there were there were no ED schools or schools for for creative people there probably art center back then but I was on the East Coast and I was in English Major. When I got out of college I thought, I would probably be I wanna be documentary photographers slash journalist because I was interested in photography from high school on. As a member of the Camera Club in college, and there was a dark room back when we were dealing with film and whatnot. and. I was doing a few journalistic pieces for the Dartmouth magazine of different people and I really liked that combination photography and journalism. So I got out of college at what to do. I went down back to New Jersey Right GROWNUP and I slept on my brother's apartment, which was above a garage and I slept on a sleeping bag for close to a year on his floor and I got a job as a as a journalist for more the Morris County daily record, which is a big kind of suburban newspaper in New Jersey and I started to you know because. I was low on the totem pole was going to PTA meeting meetings on a hot July tonight being the only person in the audience. But I got a nice little piece where I used to write about the manufacturing jobs and business jobs, and I kind of tried to turn into like a human feature piece. So I would write about the world's largest ecclesiastical garment designer. Was Morris. County. So I did in article on that and then there was an article on I did on the guys who did the macy's fireworks parade were in Morris County and so back then that. Their entire sales were once a year for the July and that was kind of an interesting business article but it was tough going. You know I was again I was sleeping on my brothers floride a sixty four Volkswagen bug that was breaking down and someone said to me you know you could be a copywriter in advertising. Nice. What's that and so? They told me what it was a copywriter in advertising talk about old school this how I put my portfolio together, there was a huge stack of national geographics in the basement of his or in this garage Saab go down there I would go to the national geographics in I would clip out photographs that I thought were appropriate in right headlines to them. And taped the photographs to the bond paper in Rhode headlining copy beneath the road some campaigns and put a book together and guide offer at Ted Bates as a junior copywriter which doesn't exist anymore to base fun to backer joined back Spielvogel than they went out of business years ago. But they were a big agency back then and I thought Big was good. The United Thought you know whether baked or solid they'll. They'll be good agency and then I was there for about a year or two when I stumbled across a one show book and I saw what worked could be in advertising and I was kind of blown away. I was Kinda like, wow this tremendous work. This is really what good work is. What what did you see in that work that you weren't seeing where you were I thought the thing that struck me even back then was that the best work for me wasn't necessarily the most clever or most clever headline but it was work that made me think differently about a brand or made me think differently about what they're trying to communicate that I actually Kinda learned something from the ad or the commercial and I was totally struck by because I was in a huge package goods agency and there was no attempt on many of those accounts to make you think differently about the product versus tell you how efficacious case it was. From then on I try to do very different kind of work I got into the did get into the one show about a year or two later than I, think some the first time agency have been the one show since they could ever remember in I slowly clawed my way out of that agency to other agencies and then found my way too shy in Los Angeles around Nineteen in the mid eighties, and that was amazing to me because that was the first time I felt like I had been with a company or a group of people that were just. Everybody was everybody was just impressive. I mean the receptionist was impressive and later on became the head of our buying they just hired people regardless of position who were thought differently or incredibly intelligent. and. I loved working there I worked there for. Close to ten years of not more, and I really enjoyed there in that was. Probably, you know I think a lot of guys who go to shy day or worked at shy can look back at those years is maybe their their heyday right in any event. That's how we got into advertising

"Please chime in with things like that. We have a location on the website as well. PD PODCAST DOT COM. If you want to let us know a topic or a guest that we can bring in on the shell. working hard to try to bring her back in. It could be a connection issue on on Sammy's end. If we want to try to reach out to her possibly, maybe we'll call her and get her on the phone. Until then let us know what you want to hear of, and if you're if you're still watching right now. Drop us a comment and just Leszno we'll give this number sixty seconds. All right. So I'm being told that that semi is their semi, can you hear me yeah I can hear you. Can. Hear her. Can't even do like. We. All right. So what I do is I'm going to close this and I'm going to restart mine and we'll see if we can just come back in. Heads Am. I S will kill some time. Can you hear me? Okay. Yeah. I can hear you good I think Oh, can I Decided to drop out one shares came back. Oh, yeah I have mountains around me and I'm a very high wind area and so it even at work, it'll just go out. So there's really nowhere nowhere within at least a fifty mile radius. That's the best connection. So I was a little a little worried how it was going to do. Back, and you're back and we're back and we're bound. We're talking really about that that mentor menti relationship and I think we figured out especially from some some people chiming in including Jimmy from from out West as well. Since students new grads really should be considering what type of mentorship they can get from an employer when looking for jobs, you know having that built into your to your to your employer is big because you're gonNA have a lot of contact with those people. You're GonNa, have you have a lot of our a lot of face time. So finding a built in mentor, a lot of times, it doesn't have to be structured thing right it could just be in ship between someone who's a little further in their career or somewhere else and someone who's looking for that mentor ship yet that's exactly at others a lot of them I do that's not a real former mentor ship. It's to get them through something in their life in their profession or it is just making that network connection just checking in with each other. How are you doing what? Do you mean when you struggling with right now. So it can be very informal. It does does not have to be anything. Super Major. At worst it's just someone to bounce. And ideas of where you are in your career I know that that term burnout comes out a lot I. think a really great way. To avoid it one of many that might try to employ. Is. Having a sounding board having somebody just just you know then who understands where you where you are because possibly they've been there to. Just get released some of that stress right? That's what you do when you vent. Yup that's that is exactly true. Couple of people that are trusted that no, the setting you're working in. Can maybe give you ideas to help push pass whatever it is. You're having a hard time with or to just sit back and listen to be like. I understand it stinks you know. Do. We need a fix it. Do you want me to listen so yeah, it's a huge help. Yeah. It's big and again having that built into your to to wear, you actually work to get a little more out of that is great. Yep Exactly. Let's move to a different topic. I WanNa talk about PTA involvement when I say PGA Has Some people have mentioned hey, it seems like there's a lot more a lot more physical therapist assistants popping up on your show. That was that was pretty conscious. who was something we wanted to make sure we did. But PTA involvement for you as someone you're really passionate about talk to me about that. So. That's one of the things. I hear a lot of talk about you know I WANNA get involved or You know I feel like nothing's happening I don't feel like I'm getting listen to how do I get involved what do I do and that's a big thing from the PTO leadership. We do here you. We are trying to make things better One of the big things for PTA involvement is to become a member that is know a lot of people don't like to hear it but you know one of the examples I uses you own a business, I say own a business, you have five hundred plus. Employees, if people come to you and say, Hey, here's an issue like, okay I'll get to if I get a chance but it's three people what are you GonNa do but if you can get more members if you can get more people behind you saying all saying the same thing yes here's what we have in issues with here's where our concerns are. Here's what we would love to do. So if you come at me as a business owner with fifty, one, hundred people now I'm going to really pay attention. And so that's one of the things. So if we're telling you here's how you know here's what we really need from. You really start seeing some changes. You don't just dismiss said, this is this is what we need. Your PTA leadership will get up to you. They will scream and they will push as much as they can have been for years. But we need numbers behind us wanted things. He's as their number games. You know we can do it. But if you're if we don't have those numbers behind us, they're not gonNA listen to us. You know as much as we want, but there have been a lot of fantastic changes over the past few years you know not only is it the numbers game? It's sometimes politics game. It takes a while to push things through. You know we are working on the Medicare we are working on PTA reimbursement, but it doesn't come over night. It's not that instant gratification. On being worked on behind the scenes so that we can finally present something or get make some kind of changes you know hopefully in the next couple years, it's a slow process, but they are very much working on it and the more you get involved the more membership we have the more you write letters to your congressman when we put it out, that's what's making the difference. Get Your family members to right at your patients to right. Across the street right we'll be talking with the believe will be hosting A. FLASH STRATEGY SESSIONS COMING UP IN SEPTEMBER, which is talking about just that which is how it involves. People said a lot of times here I like to get involved, but I feel kind of detached. was like to say, Hey, that's that's on us as membership of the a PTA or this profession in general which is to provide a clear path on how you can actually get. So. That's a that's a great way it's great thing to highlight in terms of PTA involvement. Definitely. Is something that came up. I was talking with Sean Bag. It comes up in a lot of physical therapist assistant, facebook groups, and a lot of conversations I kinda lurk those groups to because it's always good. Talking about right because. So, certifications a lot a lot of physical therapists. We know exactly what certifications we WANNA WE WANNA get and what courses you want to take before we even graduate probably to the detriment of our bank accounts and. Physical therapist assistants, they're asking these questions a lot because they're very unclear. It's not communicated certification.

So let's get serious now. Yesterday is a physical therapist assistant who adores working in this profession and helping not just your patients but students and fellow clinicians she describes herself as aggressively. Passionate. Aggressive. Aggressively, we're going to feel that which strength and a weakness. Ladies and Gentlemen Walk in today's Guest Sammy Strike. There we go. Sam What's going on not much what is going on? I am enjoying that music. It's Lebombo Esque is what? The flavor. Semi welcome to the show we get the hard questions out of the way I. So the first thing we want to ask is, what are we drinking? We are drinking an Italian Ma Scotto today very light. Very delicious. You seem like you've done some food service before because you are selling that bottle of wine right there. Table side. You're like very delicious and you're gonNA. Love this. I'm doing a real difference you're doing mosquito. So I saw that you were drink some wine I'm located right now in Walden which a lot of people I've never heard. Walden what is it? Well, it's the home of angry orchard and I'm keeping a local and I'm doing their rose as CIDER SO I. Guess my official I drink and I know things glass I don't know if it's ever been this color but I will say cheers to you as we happy hour with you Sami. Cheers here's. The Rose Day angry I like it so far very likely. So semi, tell us about you. I was like the start with our guest superhero back story. You say you're you're. Sometimes that's a weakness aggressively passionate I like that. So tell us about your in your superhero backstory. So. I am I am aggressively passionate. will go after something, which is right a great strength you want to go after it, pursue it as much as we can but sometimes I get very overly excited. And I'll push a little too hard or just not the right time and I need to back myself up in in Kinda like okay. Is this really something that I need to push forward we need to wait for a minute. I'm very similar. I've been told I've been settled. I'm guessing you've been told to settle down. Few Times. As well, settled down, you're coming off a little a little strong and a little too happy, right. Well. All right. Where you get to do in the world of physical therapy or physical therapist assistant, but to work with other clinicians. So what's your? What's your role? Where do you fit in this gray profession? So I I guess a little bit of everywhere I work in skilled nursing. So with my patients all of that but I love taking students. I. Love Being a clinical instructor taking students in there I've talked to students in the classroom outside of the. Anybody who's looking for mentorship whether it's on facebook whether it's a student that comes to me later on anything to really help the passion and help them with their technical skills with their personal skills. Sometimes, you need some bat. Little Bathroom doing courses. I've been a board of directors on one of the college programs. So them and to really draw their passion that's whether it's what the Ata with the school or just in my clinic. I love that that just highlights many different things you get to do in this profession as the many different places that you can do it. There's just so many different angles and whatever your that excites you. You can find a spot for that in this profession of physical therapy. So I like to see somebody who's doing all of the things are as many of the things you want to be doing the good for year. Let's start with one of the things you talked about, which is mentor ship that's near and dear to your heart. When you bring up mentor ship what did you want to share about that? Why? What? What could the audience learn from what you've experienced in terms of mentoring? So, what are the biggest things I say in mentorship is it doesn't matter if your student looking for mentorship. If you're a new clinician season clinicians, I have been doing this for sixteen years I. Still Look for Mentorship I have my own mentors. There's always something just because you're new in the field don't feel like, oh Shouldn't need a mentor I should know all of this. No please find somebody finds somebody to ask questions to is there a different aspect of your field? You WanNa. Get into find a mentor for that There's a bunch of us out there I know there's a PTA facebook group and we have a mentorship. Whole Tab you can find whatever it is you're looking for. So I don't want somebody to limit themselves because they're. Ready. For that. Yeah. In terms of mentor ship was play. Let's let's do one thing from both sides and just you know I'm a little Aden displayed in the audio. So if I'm sitting here is kind of staring it's not being confused by your answers. It's just a little bit of a technical issue but in terms of mentorship. Let's let's go for mentor MNT. What's one thing that a mentor can really really get out of being a mentor and serving and having a mental? What's something you get as a mentor? I. You get not just the the fulfilment of helping somebody in passion on your knowledge in your passion, but it can go both ways. So it'll help you relearn items. If that's what you need a little help, you get a little bit more in depth with the questions that they're asking. So it'll help your knowledge base. and. It'll give you a different perspective. So you're meant mentoring somebody in there like, Oh, here's the perfect that I'm seeing you know am I. AM. I. Tell Me What's going on and it might be something you've never thought of it might be a treatment idea you've never thought of. So there's a lot of education. Yeah. I'm losing just for a second. Sammy but. I'm like and everything that I'm hearing. I've heard a lot from educators that students make sure that they never really age in terms of the profession because you're always hearing learning new things. So that's one thing do in an unofficial capacity if you aren't attached. To. A PT or PTA school in terms of you know keeping your finger on the pulse and staying in touch, which is taking a n t now go for that men t you graduated from school you.

Perhaps, you belong to a club some time in your life maybe the girl Scouts or cub scouts I was a cub scout many clubs have rules and regulations that go no further than the halls were the members gather like the elks however organizations like the PTA Parent Teacher Association can affect schools, school districts therefore students the reach and impact of. These organizations are limited and generally they're intent is not secret records of meetings of the scouts, elks in the PTA and many other clubs are available to the public. But there are many secret societies out there Yale's skull and bones founded in eighteen thirty two and has had both bushes Teddy Roosevelt and his cousin Franklin as members but a complete list of members is difficult to acquire and the intent of the club impossible to know Dan there is the barbarian aluminum. An lighten era secret society founded may first seventeen seventy, six. The BILDERBERG group is so secret that is considered by many to be a shadow world most secret societies, clubs and organizations so far flung with headquarters in different cities around the world. But the Bohemian Grove is located on two thousand, seven hundred privately owned acres located in Monte Rio California and established eighteen seventy two security at the grove is year round ex-military hired to keep out the curious high end equipment including thermal night vision cameras, and motion detectors are used. As. Part of the sophisticated detection and alarm system, they have ceremonies with strange names like the yearly cremation of care ceremony. It was revealed by a California judge during a discrimination suit brought against that grow by the California Department of Fair Employment and housing over the club's refusal to hire women when the judge that issued decision in favor of the club's practice of not hiring women stated the club members urinated in the open and that hiring women would alter the members behavior odd ceremonies and members strange conduct aside members like those. Of Yale are rich and powerful pictures of President Reagan and Nixon indicate they were members. Also, the Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project Planning Meeting this took place there in September of Nineteen, forty two, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb those attending this meeting include Ernest, Lawrence j Robert, Altman Heimer, the s one executive committee heads such as presidents of Harvard Yale and Princeton along with representatives of standard, oil general, electric as well as various military officials. All members at the time oppenheimer was not an s one member. Although Lawrence, an open heimer hosted the meetings grow members take particular pride in this of and often relate the story to new attendees. However, other behavior at this famous campground has led to numerous claims and even some parody in popular culture. One such documented example was former president Richard Nixon's comments on May Thirteenth Nineteen seventy-one recording the Bohemian Grove which I attended from time to time. It is the most Fag God damn thing you could ever imagine now that's a quote from Richard, Nixon was recorded may thirteen nine, hundred, seventy one. Author, Brad Meltzer hosted a program for the history channel. It was called history coded. He hosted a team of three and during one episode sent to to infiltrate the Hebron. Grove. With the disastrous result, they were all arrested.

An assessment. Slash exam reporting that back to the PT. Right in that's all it is just knowing what you know and communicating with the PT If. If you ever really good relationship with the PT and they trust you and you trust them like there. There's really no limit on what you can do because they know that you have your back. And they have your back, so no, no your knowledge, no your scope of practice and should shouldn't at least run into issues, and I would say one thing to add if you use that word just if you Sam Joel I'm. Like. Never adjust right if we use just than you know, it's just A. PTA, you know we have to defer to the MD, but you know nobody. Nobody is just right. We all have our level of expertise and our level of experience and knowledge. That that helps us get people better, so you're never just anything because you know something better than somebody with a higher degree, I know vestibular better than ninety percent of end east. They don't treat it now. Fault of their own try. Better than them like a spine surgeon, go ask them how to treat vestibular. They're not gonNA. No, it's not their expertise, right? That's not no brag now. No nothing against them, but that's not their expertise, so I'm not just a PTA to and I know what I'm doing. I'm not going to cut into somebody's fine, but they will because they know what they're doing, so cheers to that The there. You're saying do more than then VR times one. What's that mean to you so? When when you don't treat mistake, often as a lot of people don't right, just be honest, they they don't get it that often treat it that often a lot of people differ to the one thing that they remember no, which is just. Fix target is fixed on the target back and forth, and so we've gotten patient sometimes where they've. Gone to another year there, MD and they just do that. You know fifty three times a day and they didn't get any better. So that's because that's not what you need right. So that's where the having a specialist like somebody that dives into the research that dives into the vascular goes and takes courses. Like really wants to know what it is. really comes in handy right. That's where we have pediatric specialists. We have neurology specialists like the whole nine yards. We have the steelers specialists as well and if you don't know Vista, village, specialists and stabler well and you're not in a rural area where you just have to..

You know we do. We can't for employees. You Know Sneeze Guard's face shield everything and what's happening. Is that with the six hundred dollars. GotTa newsome decided to give to people each week on top of whatever you get on unemployment. We have employees. There's not showing up to work and we're not firing them there where they start choosing not to go to work and then they're filing for unemployment in over here. There's just the unemployment the way they're checking. It is still backed up some ness that. What do we do to prevent this from like fraudulent unemployment? Because then that money comes out of our pool. Yeah that's true. Well it's not Gavin. Newsom was the feds Gavin newsom as their state at a state unemployment. The feds gave Came out of the care. Act Six hundred dollars additional unemployment from the Federal Government until July twenty fifth. And so. I don't know I think you've got clogged up. Bureaucracy these folks and firing them is going to set them up to me if you fire them. You'RE GONNA set him up for unemployment So in reporting them for fraudulently doing it I don't know I mean if they're taking it anyways feel like you. You fire them you documented and they're going to collect unemployment either way. I'd rather them collect it and not be paying that do you guys took. The loan is correct. No Yeah we have quite a PTA loan and know working on that and whatnot. But you don't want while I wouldn't I mean because it gated to keep your employees if you're going to get that thing forgiven and so I would say tap the breaks on the loan? Get rid of the team. That is collecting unemployment. Not Showing up and hire people who want to work. You GotTa let them know. You're going to hold them accountable. You don't have to get into the bureaucracy side of it but I'm GonNa tell you something right now. There are people that need to work. And I'd start you know hitting the bushes and telling people. Hey we've got opportunity you to make money right now. Unfortunately though Dave we talked about this with art laffer today. This is a real thing. This cares act has created this incentive to stay home and asking to be laid off her. Yeah they're making way more money because these are hourly wage earners Danielle and so they're making way more. But here's the reality you know July twenty fifth is looming. Okay it's coming and and you know a Lotta people who need work and so I'd move on. I absolutely move. I Say I'm GonNa hold you accountable. Nothing against you but we've got to get people in here that want to work and I'd go get people that want to work well and I went business owners right now to realize that they do not have to participate in the incompetence by the Fed. I mean that Congress has best day is is your worst day and I know. Some of them are trying and other trying to put stuff together to help. I think their hearts are probably to really help people out but they're competent to design a plan. That was going to question. The truth is that you can't wait on Congress to get this problem solved. You got to solve it.

Introducing the Movie Director Game with Sam Esmail

"We have a special sort of conversation. Here we're joined by Mister Robot. Creator the Creator of the film comet The director of Amazon's homecoming. Yes Sam. Esmail saying what's up. Hello how are you? I'm so excited to be here. I'm such a fan. Oh that's very sam. You wanted to play a game with us. I did now. I want to know why you wanted to play that game with us and I also want you to explain the game. Well explaining it okay. I'll let me start by saying I'm a huge film. Learn as I think anybody who listens to the watch probably already gust. And I've always played this game with all my film nerd fans and so I figured one when I started listening to your podcasts. Which obsessed with a huge fan of I figured especially with Amanda Sort of counterpoint? To talk to your thinking Shawn's like I just thought this'll be a fun game to play the game. Basically and again. This is sorry for listeners. Who are not going to be in on this because it's so inside. It's not even that insight. It's but it's it's really not OK okay. I won't apologize here. We go is a good game in and you deserve it. It's the best director per decade and the best director who die who had their debut. That decade does that make sense. Did I explain this? Should we use an example to help people understand it? What's an example that we won't? Won't you trample on the choices that we've made here? Well we look at this decade. We had we had like a number of actually great film. Directors made their debut Jordan. Peele with get ou- Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird Vince Gilligan Man. This favorite with El Camino until nineteen many wonderful. Thanks well actually. Gertler made no thanks. But it's it's it's it's it's. It's good to bring up Vince. As an example because he actually that was his feature directing debut which is all coming up. Now the thing is it's not necessarily not saying what's the best directorial debut? Just the director that we appreciate. The most made that debut made their debut in that decade so I think that there's a couple of semantic complications around now and you know as well as I do that there are student films. Their short film features so. Let's lay the groundwork. Because Vince directed episodes of Britain. He directed the pilot breaking bug which I think was in the prior decade but we're talking feature directorial debut so that seems easy to Parse. It's not as easy to Parse as it seems. Now tell me why well. Are you talking about dual are GonNa be Spielberg is is a particularly complex example? Because of nine or you're talking about nine gallery 'cause that's TV while he made a movie when he was seventeen called firelight for five hundred bucks and is that a film. Is that a feature film even his parents saw. I wouldn't say a featured like a debut meaning. It was released in movie theaters got it. Okay commercially available. Commercially available attack. Those are good ground rules. I'm glad that we established that play into my less later on. I do consider to be because it didn't get released in theaters. Well it is a feature film but it was not this little guy but that is considering his feature debut his first full length movie right what. What's the movie after that? Then Land Express okay all right so yes we'll stick to that okay before we play the game now. The people understand the game I want but just add one other thing the interesting thing about this game and I think will when we go through. We'll see it's where the decades are hard because there's just so many amazing options and where the decades are not A. There's not a lot of options. I just find the conversation around that to be interesting because lanes a little bit about where movies are and where they're doing exactly specifically the nineties which I thought was just a burst of like creative inspirational film makers and then the very decade after the ONS which I struggled I struggled to find. I have some counterpoint to that point but I I wanna use this as an opportunity to pick a bone with you. Oh Wow okay I resent you. I resent your your appearance on this podcast because what I what we need. What this podcast needs is people like you making movies and television shows will but you love movies and you film in a very discreet way. Yes but and I mean I guess we're going to get into it right now. It's gotTa think about think about indie filmmakers. What happened let's say Ryan Kugler? Who Loved Fruitvale? Right mazing what happened to him. After he made fruitvale he went into the machine he went into the machine. And that's what's happening with a lot of these other directors and that. That's the difference between the nineties and now so I think. Pta came out with holiday today. Is he making you know Batman in two years and by the way no not dissing on Batman? I'm excited for When Matt Raises Version of it? Because I'm a fan of his but I think it's just the industry is dictating a lot of what directors are doing now and you know and not to 'em this point that's the machine that we're in right now so and that's more reflective of the decade so t to to get to my TV point. Tv's where you get to make the interesting shit. I don't know if I could have made mister robot as a feature in fact I tried well. That was my fault. Got a little long winded. With how long was that? That forty five. Our film now That feature from I wrote ninety pages of wasn't even into act tune. That's when I realized I was in trouble. Was there a divergent path for you where after comet you could have just doubled down and said I'll stay. I'll continue to stay kind of broke but I'll keep making movies will. Yeah I mean that was the plan I was going to make Mr Buzzing indie feature and got stuck with it and Steve Golan Who You know owns anonymous content who Read the pages of Missouri Button at the time detective had just come out and he just He had just produced. That and I thought women that will this is fucking coal. And I don't need to do anything with this. I don't need to refashion the script that I had in mind and fitted into this to our box and honestly I was just really more. I remember thinking I was way more excited about true detective than I was about anything. Elsa came out there. Trust them into. What are your thoughts on true detective because I have no idea? I don't love thank you. Yeah I think I think I see yes. The first season I think true detective on its face is like a accomplished piece of television filmmaking and also I'm a huge fan of cary Fukunaga always and forever Perhaps not for the same reasons. Assess it to me actually wrap. It was such a turning point. Anything his best thing that he's done. I'm not even going to say Jane Eyre Okay. I haven't I haven't seen that I haven't seen the new Bond movie I but I'm really looking forward to it because I'm also a bond person and also I just you know I think true true detective as this carries best thing. I think that's probably true but my issue with detective is not actually true detective itself. It is the dialogue around your detective. And also I think that's a pivot point in terms of when and how we started evaluating TV in terms of tracking shots and the actual just the athletic like filmmaking as a way to bring the an experience. What is this athletic yet? Flex now and then on twitter people are now saying slaps what what is all? I don't understand that you want to explain the Internet. Let's start with the athletic because Amanda I. I've heard you use a lot and I've I've been on a lot of sets of never heard anyone say the words. I think the first person he was at my friend on the TV critic Philip asking and I think it puts its finger on this idea of money that you bring her up because she wrote this she wrote. It was a harsh. I mean whatever I respect her reviews she dissed my one episode of Mister Robot whereas all one tracking shot. I assume yes is what you mean by athletic because I do think that Filmmaking and TV and everything is more than cameras and more than where the camera is and there is such a absolutely station online. The damore as more aspect of filmmaking and I think that the tracking shot is caption of that and just like. Oh Wow. Did you see what he did. That was so cool. Oh my God. The camera is moving. You know don't you think it but don't you think has a to me every every sort of choice that you make with the camera has an effect and yes to some extent it it takes you out of it and draws attention to itself but to some extent. I really I mean what do you think of the Copacabana Sean? And I and I and I do. Actually I think even tracking protective is effective. But you know we're doing a podcast right now. That isn't essentially about how we talk about. Film and like establishing a Canon of source. And the cannon is so reliant on where do we put the camera and what did they itch on showing us an either. Don't respond to that artistically at some point. I'm just like Yay like fancy camera. Shots you got it. Congratulations to you but I do also think it distracts from the other equally important. I feel making that. Don't get enough credit. I think code is also a specifically athletic is code for Masculinity. You know it's code for this sort of The might of the male filmmaker. Now that's not always true if you watch like strange days for example. Kathryn bigelow is doing a lot with the camera yet. It is unorthodox and cool and might have what would otherwise be deemed kind of masculine energy. But I do think that true detective and largely the dialogue like you're saying was about a lot of dudes being like Yo. This is sick now. Personally I thought it was sick. Oh okay but I I would. I was not a fan of those scripts and I don't think that story is very strong but I thought that was really well

Gay Like Me: A Father Writes to His Son

"And television producer. Richie Jackson is an out loud and proud gay married man and when his teenage son came out to him he was thrilled but when his son said daddy being gay is no big deal. Ritchie knew he had to act his new book. Gay like me. Father Rights to his son is Richie's response. Being gay is a gift he says it also demands knowledge of your history. And how you fit in in America. Our conversation runs the gamut including the historic candidacy of Peop- litigate. Some are actually asking if Mayor Pete is gay enough here what Richie has to say about that right now. Richardson thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. Thank you so much for having me your book. Gay like me. A father rights to his son. I've read it full disclosure. I wrote a blurb for it because I thought it was beautiful and powerful but for those who haven't read it yet talk about what inspired you to write this book. Well thank you for your beautiful blurb and For having me I wrote the book because my husband and I have two children and when our older son was fifteen he told us he was gay and I was elated. I had wanted him to be gay. Hope to be gay. Why it was being gay is a gift. It is the best part about me. It's the most important part about me. It's been the blessing of my life. I wanted that blessing for him. And also you cam parent. If every day you pray your child is nothing like you. I have no self esteem as a parent if I did that. But when our son told us he was gay he said Daddy being gays not a big deal. My generation doesn't think being gay is a big deal and I said Oh no being gays a really big deal and I started to think of all the things I'd share with him about what it means to be a gay man. I didn't want him to grow up to be one of these people who diminishes it. Demeans it by saying gays? Just a part of me just happen to be gay. If he did that he would break on heart and diminish the gift that it is and then in two thousand sixteen donald trump was elected and brought with him the Washington Mike Pence and they've declared war on the LGBTQ community they are more of an imminent threat to our sun than Isis and North Korea. Now I had to warn him what it takes to be a gay man in America. And that was the impetus for the book you write in the book to your son. You're an American. You do all the things Americans do. You even have the dream but America doesn't want you doesn't accept you a systematically attempting to erase you schools. Don't teach about you laws. Don't fully protect you. The America you think you are part of is a mirage. You must every day. Keep a certain clarity about yourself yet. Remain keenly aware of America's vision of you when you started answering my first question. Being gay is a gift but this gift given what what? I've just read what you've written to your son. It's a gifted heavy baggage. It's harrowing to be gay and it's really hard to be gay but think about it our adversaries are not trying to diminish us because we are worthless because where a defect they know that are being gay makes us powerful think about what. Marvel's lgbtq people are. We disappointed our parents. We are at battle with our government. We are stigmatized by religions. We are bullied in our childhoods. Where raced in our classrooms. We've survived the plague and still we rise. Come out and say this is me. That is the spirit of an extraordinary species of people. You right Also my coming out wasn't only a combination of an exploration in an evolution of identity. It was a political act right that is opposite of what of what your son Jackson was thinking. It's just a part of me. It's not a big deal but for you when you came out it was a political act. And why right so I came out in nineteen ninety-three right at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic and are coming out was political. We had to stand up and show in numbers. How many gay people there they were. So that we would force the government to fight AIDS being game being political has always been intrinsically linked from me because my first political act as a gay person. I act as a gay person was going to rally to demand The government fight AIDS and I. You didn't go where I thought you were going to go because I thought you're already doing my answer. I thought your first political act other than coming out was going to a pride parade and you have very strong opinions about what pride has become exactly. Well you know if you if my first political act was going to pride it would not have been a parade because back in nineteen eighty three. We were marching. We were not having a parade. They were angry marches. They were there. Were more fist than flags. We were activists who were Demanding attention demanding rights that we didn't have demanding representation. There were no out politicians. There were no out movie stars. There were very few laws protecting us so back then. Pride was A A rally a March now all the rainbows and the Hashtag love is love and the parades have all lulled us into this complacency into this false idea that things are better and corporate sponsorship. You Right Pride was a rebellion. Not a logo or handed together not branded. Yes so we didn't have any corporations and I recognized that back then we would have craved the corporate attention. Oh Yeah and Just somebody to say we see you and we support you but right now what these corporations are doing is they're slapping rainbows on their Store windows they're putting floats are parade but they also when we're not watching supporting local politicians with who are anti lgbt because it is in the best interest of their business so they're pink washing us so corporations are a complicated thing for us in our in our pride rallies in our pride rallies. But given what you just said there are corporations that step up and and go to bat for us when more powerful than our government when when state legislatures do so called Bathroom Bills Tim. Cook probably the most powerful. Ceo of a gigantic corporation put his personal cloud on the an he. He is gay right. I'm put his clout on the line. Does that no extraordinarily or you could look recently at Tennessee bills. Where all the company said. This is bad for business. They still got signed into law. The only company that did not sign that letter denouncing these laws is Fedex on. That says a lot yes You what I find fascinating is in. We're of the same the same generation and this son who has didn't really have to be in the closet. You right you were never in a closet. You didn't start. Start your gay life with that prison of secrecy. Aninat weird way was the closet or is the closet A benevolent incubator. Yeah it's interesting To sit there sitting in the closet and be able to discover yourself and and have a sense of what you're facing outside. You know one of the things I think a lot about. Is these young kids. I celebrate them coming out so young but are they ready for. What's going to come at them? Once they are out and You know the the I wouldn't know how to be our son to live in a world where he didn't I didn't start my life Hiding Eileen start my life with secrets and I think so many of us Do that that becomes a modus operandi for the rest of our lives. You can't compartmentalize secrets. So if you start your life in prison and a full of secrets hiding that's GonNa seep out to other parts of your life and my son doesn't have that and I'm grateful for your grateful for it but on the other hand you it makes you super fearful rally him. He has no idea what it takes to be an on alert. Gay Man in America. I one of the things that made me nervous and why I wrote the book is he has no gay guard and Lgbtq people our age. You know that you never let down your guard. You always know who's around you what you're saying. Who can hear you when it's safe to hold your husband's hand when it's not safe to kiss the person you love goodbye. You know What Street to walk down to get to work because it safe. You know what states to live in That are hospitable to starting a family or where you could be fired for being gay there. Were all these things. That take daily vigilance. And if you don't have a gay guard you're at risk and our son didn't didn't have that when he was leaving college looking for college and yet as you write in the book I want you to talk about about this. I'm going to read this one. This one sentence. And then you run with it us. Very Gotcha. Gotcha which you're ready. Fresh said this right now but you right just a few months old and you were already confronted with gay prejudice right so Our Son was three months premature. He was an identical twin and they were They had twin twin transfusion syndrome. They were born three months early in our first born son died and Jackson was In intensive care for three months and when he was eight days old and two pounds he had surgery and over the course of the time that he was in the hospital he needed a blood transfusion. But because we are gay men Both me and my partner at the time B. D. Wong who Who Who I had Jackson with. We were not allowed to donate blood. We were his parents. We had pledged take care of him and to you know protect him and we were being told eight days into parenting that we could not do that. And that law still That regulation from the FDA still stands. Gay Men cannot donate blood unless they're celebrate for twelve months the discriminatory Regulations still in place so when we go to our. Pta says we're doing a blood drive my husband and I have to say we're not allowed to participate

Welcome Your Loneliness

"In our last episode episode. One thirteen eighteen decide to decide. I shared. How sometimes decision stresses out? Because we haven't named what the decision is in the first place so it just lingers UNMADE beneath the surface. Because we haven't pulled it out to decide to decide those kinds of UNMADE decisions. Hold sneaky power over us because we are uncomfortable or unsettled. But we don't exactly know why while in that episode I share. I think three things to do when that's the case for me and maybe that will help you too but today's episode is kind of the opposite. It's when we feel uncomfortable or unsettled but it isn't because of an unmade decision or unidentified decision. It's just because of the state of things. We wish. There was a decision to be made an action step to take or formula to follow instead instead. There's just US unsure about what to do who to ask or WHO's in our corner in my letter to my readers last week. I mentioned some loneliness I've been experiencing experiencing lately and a reader wrote back and asked me to share more about that when my first response in my head was a sharp away but then my second thought was maybe and the ellipses that follows. That may be. Well that's Today's episode. Welcome when we're feeling lonely was our next right thing. I can't say I really have answers to that question but I do have words and I do have stories and sometimes when you're feeling lonely words in stories land better than answers I do anyway. Listen my husband. John and I are in our eighteenth year of marriage in our relationship. Ship is one of the greatest gifts of my life. That is true. What is also true? Is that several times over the past few months. I've heard these words come out of my mouth in in conversation with other people I've experienced more loneliness after I got married that I ever did before I got married. Now that's not really a commentary on the the state of our marriage more it reveals that when I was twenty four when we got married I probably expected not to be lonely ever again after our wedding day. That's rookie mistake. Steak number one over the past two decades. I've been learning how wrong that assumption was now as a white middle class college educated woman who lived with supportive parents or lovely roommates of until I was married my life. Experience does not necessarily scream lonely. In the way I know so many people might experience reince loneliness. The kind that accompanies divorce neglect abuse homelessness single parenting death of a spouse or parent or child. These have have not been part of my personal story yet but they might be part of yours. Of course we know. Some degree of loneliness can visit us no matter our circumstance no matter better where we live or who lives with us and feelings of loneliness or not reserved for those who are alone. Let's just say that we also I hope no that just because you're married. Mary doesn't mean you don't experience loneliness and just because you're single doesn't mean that you do. The experience of loneliness really is not contingent upon where we live. How much many we have our employment or relationship status? But upon the fact that we are human lately my most profound sense of loneliness has revolved around on my work. So that's the angle from which I'll talk about loneliness today but no matter where you are in your feelings of loneliness. Perhaps you can still relate. I attended my first professional conference seventeen years ago when I worked for a local university as the sign language interpreter coordinator. I flew to Chicago to learn. Learn more about the craft of sign language interpreting and to meet with other interpreters from all over the country. I was also twelve weeks. Pregnant with the twins at that time mm-hmm so one memory that stands out. The most of that conference for me was feeling constantly sick and getting up early to walk to the starbucks around the corner so I could get some orange juice with ice but there are other things I remember about that conference. Two and one of them was the pressure anxiety. I felt to make connections to rub shoulders to network as they say. PS anytime. I hear the word network. I picture a convoluted ball of tangled up wires with frayed edges all searching searching for a spark or a connection brain so weird. I don't remember any of the people I networked with and pretty sure. I didn't do it right but I do. Remember from my roommate's stacy who was the interpreter coordinator at a neighbouring college and who I only knew from a distance but we decided to room together and she brought me T- when she knew I wasn't feeling well while she was kind and I was grateful. So I remember stacey and cold orange juice and anxiety and Chicago and johns voice on the other end of the phone offering comfort and encouragement me because I was desperately lonely that week. I was lonely for a lot of reasons. I'm sure but mainly looking back. I know a big part of it was because because I was sent there by my boss on the university's time and he wanted to make sure they got their money's worth but the problem for me was. I wasn't sure how to make that happen. I wasn't sure what was was expected of me wasn't sure how to measure my own success. I didn't feel adequate to be in the room with all these famous interpreters. Yes you heard that right if you don't don't already know this. Every profession has their own celebrities in sign language. Interpreting is not immune from it in some circles even motherhood seem to have celebrities. PTA President anyone room anyone parents with the best house for the kids to hang out and yet every profession has celebrities. Maybe he's not celebrities like in the Hollywood would Oscar and Grammy Sense of the word but in every business in every work. There are those who seem to belong. Who arrived who have made it and are doing it right? And then there's the rest of US wondering if we have what it takes to do this work well or even at all and even though that was seventeen years ago and even though I'm an an entirely different profession now writing books hosting this podcast co running a membership cypher writers. Even though some might say I'm a writer writer who has arrived or WHO's made it. I will say to you that while there are a lot of insecurities. I have overcome after ten years of doing this work. There are a lot of hurdles that crossed over and fears that I've pushed through yes. There are many first-timer experiences that I've grown out of but loneliness linus is not one of them. And that's where I was when I wrote my end of the month letter to my readers. I was naming some loneliness I've been experiencing in my work lately even though I have a lot of friends. Who Do this work? Even though I've been doing it for a while now even though I for the most part no where to go to get my questions answered served still when you have a job to do especially when you're the one calling the shots making the decisions or the manager of people in some way there's a natural loneliness that accompanies that space at the end of the literal day. I am the only one who can do my next thing. I am the only one who can write my next book. DOC or make decisions about vision and Next Steps in my work and you're the only one who can do that in your work to as it turns out you can't can't network your way out of loneliness and maybe that's what I was trying to do at that first professional conference maybe I was making it too hard. Maybe I needed to look no further than my roommate and let that be enough for that particular trip. Now it's true. Networking is a corporate word. And I'm not really a corporate girl. But just because I don't like the word networking doesn't excuse me from doing my job. Let me say that plainly networking is part of my job. It's part of a lot of are jobs actually just because we don't feel skilled at something doesn't mean we don't have to do it. We can't change the game but we can change how we approach it how we talk about it and and our posture toward it for several summers my editor and I co at a session at a conference for writers where we offered twelve truths to know before you write your next book book will writers would come up to me after that session and ask questions questions. Like how do I grow my readership. Or How do I build my platform and people still ask me those questions now. Inside of Hope Raiders. My membership safer raiders. And they're good honest fantastic questions and when I hear those questions I find myself wanting to offer both a hug and also wanting to fling heavy objects across the room is not because I'm mad that the questions are being asked it's just because I have a complicated relationship ship with networking if you haven't figured out yet here's the thing you are a person and I am too and we desperately need each other. We eat our kids leftover macaroni and cheese and we need to plug are eyebrows on the regular and we hold our hearts together with smiles shape band aids and handful of oreo cookies past the milk. Please he's I can't do this without you. So how does this conversation about networking connect with these feelings of loneliness. Good question thank you for asking well simply imperfectly. I think part of it is this when we feel lonely in our work it can seem like the answer is to network fine people who get what you do. Who can support what you do and who you can support to an honestly? I'm being so for real here. I think that is part of the answer. I think that's vital actually early. If you don't know people who get what you do find them find them yester- now as my sister. My coin would say that is your next right

How I Built This

07:27 min | 2 years ago

Panera Bread/Au Bon Pain: Ron Shaich (2018)

"Ron Shake isn't a household name like you say Howard Schultz but you could argue that. What Howard Schultz did for coughing Ron shake did for cheddar broccoli soup or the SEO cheese he's Bagel because like Howard? Ron Wasn't just focused on product. He was interested in creating a space of place where people could hang out for a long time. Maybe even have a PTA meeting or social gathering and really linger over that Bagel or cup soup. This is the famous third-place concept concept that both Howard Schultz and Ron shake wanted to tap into in. That's how Panera became one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the world. In fact if you've invested the seven thousand dollars in Pinera stock in nineteen ninety nine. You'd be sitting on more than half a million dollars by two two thousand seventeen now. The thing is if you met Ron shake say in high school. This is not the path you've predicted for him. Ron Wasn't even interested in business. Is Passion was politics. His parents were raging liberals and Ron grew up going to rallies and volunteering on campaigns. All over New Jersey eventually went to Clark University where naturally he majored in politics and he was quickly elected to student government. And that could have been Ron's life life except for one day when something happened to Ron and a group of friends something kind of small but something that when you look back on it probably probably changed his entire life. Yeah so we. We were in a local convenience store called store. Twenty four cross the street from the main entrance to the Clark campus and they accused US shoplifting and tossed us out cecily guys just being rowdy earnings or wild. No we were shopping but I came back to campus episode and I was in my dorm with a couple of friends and I said you know. Why are we shopping there? How they can they treat us like this? What supports that store? We said what do we need what we can we can do this ourselves. We can have our own convenience store and I said you know this isn't going to be that hard. Let's go do it. And we approach the university. They weren't so keen on this but I moved the question to student body They voted in support of it and I basically agreed to spend that summer between my sophomore and junior here opening this convenience store guy. Wow So. What'd you guys Sal We sold Everything from drinks to Munchies two cookies and candy and you know our assistant manager would come to my apartment at five in the morning and we actually would go to this deep discount supermarket and buy I don't know ten or fifteen baskets full of merchandise that we'd stocked the store with and We hired twenty or thirty different students to work there. I will be very franken. Saint Joe's more interested in that store than when I was in my own academically. And and your guy who's all still focused on public policy in government but I guess this it was Kinda cool you liked. He kind of liked doing business running a business. Yeah and and you know. I didn't see myself as that kind of guy and it took me a wile to make sense of that but in so many ways running a business is no different than campaign in fact a campaign is a the business that that essentially has one day in which it ends a business campaign that goes on and never ends so at this point in his life. Ron Wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do. Business or politics but people around him saw how how much he loved running that convenience store and a lot of people said. Hey why don't you get an MBA. So Ron did he enrol at Harvard. Business School in Nineteen seventy six. And when he finished unlike a lot of his classmates who went into banking or finance ron decided to go into retail and he took a job in the mid west and a place called held the original cookie company. Twenty stores in shopping malls We grew it to about one hundred and twenty five. I took the job as the third year of the NBA. What I mean by that is I took a job as a district manager? Basically Iran ten or fifteen of these cookie stores half the United States and I spent went My time running around the country and I ended up opening thousands of these cookie stores around the country so as certain point you're learning about the cookie business I guess and then at a certain point you get this idea like hey I can do this myself. I can have my own cookie store yes and and I can literally remember traveling Cross Indiana. I'm away to Fort Wayne Dope a new cookie store and it hit me and I said why are we opening this in a Mav. There's a huge opportunity open these in in an urban setting. Why don't we open one and I can remember going to my boss? I remember him taking me to meet. Beat the CEO of the company. Said I wanNA open an urban cookie. Store looks him and he says we don't do that here. We Open Mall based retail units. I thought to myself well. If you're not GONNA do it. I'd like to go do it. Why shouldn't we and I'm the Kinda guy by Sam going to do it? I want to go do it and it led led me to actually resigning my job and I moved back to Boston and I started looking for real estate and the reality was. Nobody would Li space for cookies. Find any sir for cookie store because they thought it wouldn't make enough money to pay the rent. 'cause I had no credibility. Yeah I had no real money I had you know no balance sheet to sign a lease and so I went to my dad and I said I I want my inheritance. Whatever it's going to be I want the opportunity to use it and I had about twenty five thousand dollars Ned Essentially let me. He gave me seventy five thousand dollars and that one hundred thousand dollars became the GRUB stake the equity. That allowed us to build that. I four hundred square-foot cookie store. Wow in downtown Boston. What did you name the store? We named it the cookie jar and I can remember. We took the toll house recipe. Right it off the bag. I bought a small mixer and I would pass out cookies in front of the stories that we were building. It and I'd start to adjust the recipe based on what I learned talking to customers and and you were the baker. You were making cookies yourself. Yeah we opened. There were three employees. I made it was me and to folks I will never forget at that day. It just seemed like people never stopped walking a coming in and purchase fifty thousand people day going by and I'll never forget it. I got to the end of the day walking past or foot traffic. Yeah but I got to the end of that at first afternoon. We opened one o'clock guide and by six we closed and my back was hurting. Oh and legs were hurting. And I can't in the money and I I realize we only brought in four hundred dollars. I mean you forget when we talk about business what it is the self the four hundred batches of cookies buck each and the amount of energy and work that goes into
