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.

"Actually it's getting real. People will listen one day So the relationship was actually platonic. Because as terry remembers it. Sean believe in sex and had been taught that it will be very went to catholic school so like yet we are taught to not believe in sex. So maybe that's part of it Sean didn't believe in sex and had been taught that it was a nasty thing and he shouldn't do it and again obviously. There's no if saying again i haven't said this yet but there's nothing wrong with being a platonic relationship of course but in the context of he was watching like really violent porn pretty much all day every day It's just like telling red flag. I guess sure so. Eventually terry moved into shawn's house with him. The one that that is mom paid the mortgage for and she continued working at the convenience store he would driver there. Picker up The spent a lot of time together and when they moved in together. That year was the year. That sean vincent gillis killed his first victim and to be clear it was not donna. Bennett johnston the one. I mentioned earlier with the tattoo There were many more before her. So grays i know so. Start from square one. His first victim was actually eighty one year old and brian. I know it's pretty dark She lived at an assisted living facility across the street from his work in baton rouge and she was an artist musician and enjoyed playing bridge with friends and he entered her apartment on march. Twenty first nineteen ninety-four the her front door which an left open because she wanted to allow her nurse easy access to replace so sad so sad and it's like she's never had a problem. Her nurse comes in and helps her out the nineties. She plays bridge. She's an artist and like he just waltz his right on. It's also really sad when like obviously if anyone is ever attacked. It's it's i'm not trying to compare situations here but it is especially awful but it's someone who is more or less helpless in that they keep the door open. They probably aren't moving around a lot or not say like younger people. I feel less bad for anything. It's just like it's just no. It's just they're more vulnerable. Yeah yeah no. I totally get it and like you're just taking advantage of the fact that this person is a vulnerable member of society each week. Nothing's dog and is like is like just so. Sweden has a great reputation. Just il grande is trusting of society. And it's just really backed up. Yeah so according to sean. He initially only entered her home in an attempt to rape her but when she screamed he panicked and slashed her throat and then stabbed her around fifty times in the head genitals and chest. Oh my god yes So the sheer amount of wounds to her head nearly decapitated her decapitated her and i'd she was almost disemboweled many times. He stabbed her. Wow that's some fucking the right there really fucking brutal and he very very intentionally stabbed her breasts genitals like intentionally so that tells you something and this was his first murder so he had never even done anything like this before out so police. I know it's just a terrible start. So police at the time had no clue who was responsible for this and meanwhile sean was at home..

"Are we just have a better chance at making as the pta members salad alad switching it over to coven got it okay. 'cause yeah this was definitely satanic. Which i'm sure. I would love to go and watch as well but probably be a little more scared of just out of pure ignorance but i would love to be the pta who really fuck it like the member who educates the shit out of myself. Yeah yeah so we would definitely be this person but they would go they watch Locals engage in the rituals of satanic worship and they smoke pot together so that was like the extent of kind of his that and like bullying.

"So eventually ed He got the house from tony chuckle and he could only renovate the house at night because at this point so many people knew that the place was haunted disturbing all day long but he could only get shit done at night. Okay great you know what that's not but so this is a quote from and he said i don't believe in the paranormal but since i've been working on this place i felt very uncomfortable like someone's watching so i when they're like i don't believe it but get this. It's like right. Come on you gotta like at one point. Admit that you believe it right. It's like you okay. So you don't believe it but also you're paranoid. Yeah at also said one of his experiences when he started seeing things himself he said when i pull up in the driveway at night i see a man looking down at me from the window. I would never enter that home again. Know why would you stop and you go inside. He is dressed in a brown jacket and a bow tie like from another time period. That sounds like doctor. Who but also said dr doolittle or dr deal but like if you truly if you saw us of a man your home why would you. Then go do time for bed. Believe in the paranormal. But some of this guy in my window especially by the way if you don't believe in the paranormal has if you don't believe in the paranormal then you have to think what you're seeing is a grown woman at murderer. Yeah exactly that's none of it's good none of it's ed doesn't sound like he's sharpest so at also reported seeing the ghost of gerald bennis kid dog boy in the house. Apparently he would see gerald staring at him. And every time he saw gerald's who'd also feel a cold wind on his neck. That's not hoboken style. The it certainly not. I don't know what it is but it isn't that here's a quote from him about seeing gerald. He was this huge. I guess from here to here. What should he journalist that me being like. How big was this big. Okay i okay so some imagine. My arms like stretching as far as possible. He was huge and a weird looking cat human. So that's interesting that he sees a cat and a dog. Oh wait maybe. He meant he's he. Was this huge checks out. he was not chicago. I think that's what happened. That was a million but delia. Reading right there okay. No i followed right along. What an eighty after huge is. I don't want me to pause. That's right that's the problem. He he was this huge. We're looking cat human there. We go with long brown hair. Creepy is in great big arms and hands. He walked right in front of me and glared at me and right after i saw and he walked through the hall and disappeared. Sometimes i would hear something slam or someone walking across the floor. But i couldn't see anything. And i knew it was him letting me know that they were there. Oh gotten letting me know that they like. No no no no no but also this fucking guy. I don't believe in the paranormal series. So what like a cat dog man is just hanging out in your house near like what a kookie neighbor at that point. It's weird or to believe that that's just a random at some point. You're making yourself look worse if you're like that's just my roommate..

"Maybe you believe that. The neighbor is board satirical else. I believe hospital so when it was known as the garrett house the family the jackson family lived there. Which is. i don't know why it's called. It's not called the jackson house interesting. I would've thought the family were the garrett's whatever so. The jackson family lived there when it was the garrett house in the jackson family. The husband's name was ben jackson. His wife had died at twenty eight and then their son who ended up becoming a world war one vet. He also died at twenty one. I think both of them died in the house. So they're both of their spirits are known to haunt me building now and i'm assuming there's probably some story out there that oh and then ben jackson died and now he haunts the house with his wife and son. So there's a family of ghosts if he went on their dog man. Hybrid died in also haunts the house. You know what you nailed it Ben actually was aware wolf and now he's a ghost. He's half-and-half Could never out so in the nineteen fifties. After they died the best family moved in which is when the house became the us house got. And this is the nineteen fifties. So floyd in a lena bettas. They moved in and four years into living very thank. They had their son named gerald's and some people are some sources. Also call him like jarrell or giral. It's like with jay but the one that people most no is gerald like from. Hey arnold got it. And so he was born nineteen fifty four and i guess right off the bat. He was a really difficult kid. Not only did he have issues at school with like having a hard time learning or he was getting bullied or whatever but according to neighbors maybe this one very loud neighbor quote. His parents were good people but gerald was a vicious and cruel. Oh goodness okay. That's he was never student. I'll tell you was. He deserved the caboose before anyone except and non the special person and he definitely deserved. No beanie babies certainly not. Apparently he had some really weird behaviors including getting cats and dogs. Which like. I don't love the phrasing of that so when i heard collecting cats and dogs is like okay gerald you and everyone else in the twentieth century. You're not special like everyone's got a million cats dogs. Which by the way is what led him to the name dog boy because apparently it was because he was primarily Collecting dogs can we can. We clarify like collecting dogs. Like in an okay way or like in a murderous way what. Why are you doing that. Face because collecting means catching in torturing fuck so what and that's as far as we go there just you know so one on one neighbor claims that he. I'm confused about this. Because i don't know if they mean gerald himself once he was an adult or gerald's parents did this favor for him or something but at some point in addition was built onto the house and the rumors circulated that they were building room. Two they could fit and more animals in the house. Okay alright that makes christine would build an addition on her house for a million ngos like to be clear that's like the not.

"Just try to do this. So here's my story. This is the story of the best house and quinton arkansas new. This is also known sometimes as the legend of the dog boy. But i feel like that's a leading. That's my thought is that the dog boy becomes a main character here and i feel like what's the opposite of bearing lead like unearthing earth. Yeah it feels. I feel like it. It makes it sound a lot more spectacular. If i go with the dog. Oh you're saying like it's a misleading tire leading instead of burying loyd. I don't know yet ever. Here's the story of the bettas house featuring the dog boy so it's an equipment. Arkansas with facts was a major trading center until eighteen seventy. It's also important halfway point to get from from tennessee to arkansas. it's big like travel areas heavily populated and especially during the civil war. It was a place where a lot of folks enlisted for the army. So there's a lot of soldiers in the area and arkansas. I did want to throw in like a little fund. Extra paranormal story. Before i talked about the baddest house just because it's super quick. Apparently in the same area there is a vanishing hitchhiker. Everyone knows about where. There's i guess. The story goes that a man was driving to little rock and he saw in the middle of the night this girl sitting on the side of the road and she had like a cut on her mind. Her dress look kinda fucked up and he pulled us over to ask if she was okay and she said she had been in an accident if he could drive her home in so he gets to the address that she gives knocked on the door and a man opened the door and he said hey. There's this girl that's in my car. And so she lives here. She's been in an accident and the guy that lives there will say like no. That's my daughter. She died in accident years ago. And it's pretty common that she will show up for people in the middle of the night and ask them to be driven home. That's so spooky. Can you imagine like being that family though in like every time. The doorbell rings at night. Now i have to talk about my daughter's death again like that must be so traumatic to every single time. Have to explain to people like it's not real. She's not alive. It would also be in like the the most silver lining of ways really comforting to. She's still around. She's still hanging out. She's still traumatize on the side of the road..

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
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

"That that always comes I know I've heard share and talk and say that the crystal ball the rubber ball and putting that in perspective I've heard her say that it multiple times but you said something different there which set it up in terms of a timeframe right. So let's say you you started school or you start scouting wherever the the thing that you're GonNa do you actually said what is what does it crystal ball rebel this week That actually change my mindset, which is, hey, sometimes, schools a rubber ball. WanNa time. It's GonNa be a crystal ball, but sometimes, it could be I let this slider I can let go for a day. I've never heard actually someone put it in that perspective before, and that's absolutely I mean because school at times we'll be easier there will be less assignments you won't have an exam that week the content is easier. You know you're getting into an area where you're more comfortable where you're not gonNA have to spend three hours studying for the test or four hours now whereas sometimes you got your light, your minds blowing up because it's so hard that you have to really focus in. So you have to be flexible. Go. Right now, I'm good. This is good. I have to go over here. And I. THINK THAT'S TRANSITIONAL DPT REGULAR DPT. If you're just going for PTA, you're trying to get your associate's degree. I. Mean I have first year. PTA students that her seventeen years old. They're just coming out there just coming out of school. They're taking nineteen credit hours with Amy Math, first-year PTA courses, and they're just completely swapped and they have they've they're used to getting all as in school, and now they're having to sit down and buckle. Never had that kind of stress and did have so a professor go. It's okay if you don't get A. You can take breaks just. Really refocus and thank and be able to talk them through that mental process of being able to go. It's okay. This good right you don't WanNa go through life and I mean crush everything like eventually want to hit some hard hit next. Absolutely. Absolutely I mean that's I mean th that means you're you're you're learning something you being tested and you're. Absolutely. If everything's easy all the time, you're not challenging yourself wrong room the thing you said there you put perspective in terms of setting expectations you know with. So my work someone brought this to me, which is the arc ever hear the triangle, which is the affinity reality and communication. So if you have to, you know you affinity, you have to kind of you know like or at least respected the person you're communicating with reality to be on the same terms if. You if you're on different terms, you're not you know and then when those things are achieves when you can actually communicate and you're saying, Hey, setting expectations listen I'm going to be very clear here. I made this commitment before both things are very important but right now to use the other algae, this one's Chris I can't let it drop right now this one's rob I will be back and I will get it done and that's being thoughtful prepared all scout things thoughtful prepared. There's always the theme that pops up in these episodes. They always come out. Haired and clear in communicating and a lot of times that saves the day not doing more just clearly communicating where you are right. You set clear expectations with people you're working with. So they know where you're at. So that way you're not, you're not disappointing them. You know it's those people that don't know you that have an expectation of of what you are. Those are the people actually run into problems with because they. They think because of all these things that I do that I'm super super responsive in I always on top of things and it's like. No You just haven't seen that side because you haven't had to deal with me personally one on one and understand that things get prioritized on a day-to-day basis and your email you sent me. About Service project two months from now may not be the most important thing today. That's part that's mis mis misunderstand and when you alive. Would also like thinking about those things and go why why why is this relationship really screwed up? Why are we not getting along and usually it's one of those three things to finish a reality and communicating enough I'm saying a lot but we on reality. Okay. Then there's that the warriors or you know what? Like there's this weird vibe between us there's no affinity. So this won't be successful so. The first time I was exposed to that was at Fox where my day job a Fox rehabilitation I had never heard of sat down with the Director of marketing is kind of like my counterpart. About the trial right I'm like, yeah and I was like. Let's review it how you who might be different than how often? have no idea what he's talking about but this work. What. That's great. I shouldn't be more forthcoming and if he's blocking because he washes these be like you didn't know what? Role. But but. You know What's what do you got to have you know? Is there something that someone's gotTa have to make that friends urgency 'cause this comes up a lot this topic especially in PTA facebook groups that I lurk in and I just kind of watch. I feel like you just have an auto reply, but you know what's going to make a good candidate to make that transition. Easy you have to be willing to make the sacrifice because that's what it is. You know you're sacrificing your time you're sacrificing your energy. You're sacrificing your ability to progress it your work. Now because you're not working as much, we're required to work in our program. So we have to work at least twenty hours a week. Most of US still work close to full time if not full-time but it's still you. They know your employer knows that couple years down the road, you're going to be gone for thirty weeks and not be there. So you have to be willing to make that sacrifice upfront when you walk in the door and then there's also as every DPT's student knows there's that financial implication. You know which actually is why the transition is so appealing because you're working. Making close to what you would normally make us a PTA while. Putting out what you would normally. Be a DVD student. So your your your loss, your your the the cost benefit analysis curve curves better financially better by doing that because you're working through it. whereas. The traditional.

We have some of our classes that we've actually completely rearranged this semester knowing that we have all this hands on stuff that we have to get in. You know. So we're pushing all front end so that if something does happen down the road, if covid explodes in our area that way we have our hands on stuff in so that the students aren't GonNa. Miss out on that time. It's handwrite there he's. Prepared Haired if it gets changed during the the the boy scout in you absolutely hard. About your superhero extra. We'll let people know if you want questions, comments, filtered drop them at any time during the shell we'll try to get those towards the end. I don't want to interrupt the flow but feel free that those those lines are open whether whether you watch those on youtube twitter or facebook. So Superior backstory you like give it to us. You got a cool collected. So. It's it's I am not the normal PTA DP student. Of started out as a as a chemistry major in college went to music education actually taught high school music for ten years. Transitioned out of that wasn't even sure what I was going to do my wife and I had three kids kind of figure try to figure out life. You know when you're in your thirties trying to figure out why that's different kind of figuring out there. Decided to go back to school as a PA. I. Love Movement Helping People Love Teaching. Always with the intention of going to do the transition at Finley. So when I sat down with books looking at professions, it was a what can I do and not have to move the kids not moves a family. So I looked at I looked at, it was like Elorza PTA in my tau, I'll do that and then philly's got this transition. I'm going to do that. So I mapped it out. I have a seven year plan for education and we're we're we're working through. It had a didn't were running on your eight year nine, but it's You know life happens but we're still moving forward or still added another kid to that too in the Middle Right. Yes we have. We have four children, three boys our oldest as a sophomore in high school. He's fifteen. He's GonNa get his licence in January it's. Teaching, how of dry? Exactly. Right. You know you're. So you're worried about your own education, you're worried about your students. So I taught the back of a second so did PTA school I got offered a job acute care right out of high. School. Worked in acute care for three years working with critically ill patients working in cardiovascular intensive care became a team lead there. They got asked to come back into academics. And that it will that was going on applied to school started DPT's school. Now Director of clinical. Education. For PTA program in my almost my second year of DP t school with boys I'm a scoutmaster for their voice scout troop. And then we just try to do everything else like marching band and A nine year old daughter so Drink man it's you requested always the hardest what we drink. We. We're drinking angry orchard. What's asking this a lot on the video cast a lot of people where you are angry orchard. Where it's mushed I don't know what you. Wall in New York while the New York guess where I am right now I'm in Walden New York so. I, read it on the bottom. Part. During his own from south of the border I figure out with the theme for tonight one I do a corona. You for coming on. Appreciate that now. All right. So that's a hell of a back story I. Feel like you know. A lot of people. Either have very straightforward or crazy like weird radio DJ to. Be. Any or you know your stealth, which is me. So we're talking about the PTA TO DP transition this comes up a lot how many how many about programs are there's not ton right so True Bridge programs to right. There's one in Finley Ohio, and then there's one in Galveston. Texas I believe it's Galveston Texas. Both are I think they're set up a little different Finley's based off of like in every other week approach where you go to campus every other week and you have two days classes and then everything else is online honestly have never really researched Galveston because. For Me Finley's our way GALVESTON's a flight. That being said, my classmates from Texas Colorado California. Florida. So we have people that fly in from all over the place. The class will only there's three from California Washington in Montana. So I mean, these people are making huge investments to be able to to do their academic learning in this in that van nat. Faxon. You went into this. You went into PTA knowing you're GONNA make this bridge program because of proximity. Yes. Why? Why do you hear what are the reasons and other reasons? This was a clear path for you but a lot of people who went in one direction in our saying, Hey, I'd like to change things what are what are some other a the reasons.
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

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.

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.

"If you get to the table, right, they don't. They'd will not represent people well if they don't see their voice being hurt right and we have the PTA caucus and they do an awesome job of of advocating for us on the professional level, and doing all the things there, but that's a small portion of the amount of PTA's that are in. The country. We look at just numbers the PTA the goal for AB. Ta was to have ten thousand PTA members like the tens of thousands of PT members, so if we don't have the numbers there why I mean just like any other politician. If you're not showing up to the voting booth if you're not showing up and donating like they're, they're going to advocate for the people that. That are showing up. They're not going to advocate for the people that are not showing because they don't know what those people want. If you're not at the table, and I mean you can go on my twitter, I bitch at the PTA a PTA all the time for all the different things that are you a major? Yes I. AM paying attention so I am a member.

You have to inject yourself into the State Association in all the little. Little menial. Meteo roles all the committees everything. You can inject yourself into a pizza do that.

"If they're telling you how to do your job, they would do that regardless. That's just a bad manager over all right or they have a lot of pressure from from up top telling them that they have to do that. It's not. An issue of the license it's an issue of that person and the management. That's the issue. It's not the license. I was GONNA ask them similar Vincent beat me to it in the comments below any pushback from the PT's. No you're. Not Really. We've I. Mean I've only been there a short time so far? But you know everything we get along with. There is a little bit of a learning curve for for me going from outpatient to a sniff, so they great at helping with that and helping me transition there, but there hasn't really been too much pushback, one way or the other you know. I told them from the get go like my job is. Is the manager I'm going to default to you guys for everything. That's not my decision to make I always have my my my litmus test that I. Call it for for PT's I. Always Tell them that I'm your supervising PTA. Just like as a joke and I did that. My other clinic and the PC's loved it but they you know they got. They got that. It was a joke and everything right. With the PGA so You know there really hasn't been any pushback. Thankfully, there are all all been great, and they do their job really well, and they make my job releasing a scare. Great Question Vincent, my follow up or that or the the one after that is. How did you pitch yourself to land in that position? Because it's not typical, the we're highlighting. This is as PTA managing and being a business supervisor. How'd you fall into that? How did you pitch yourself to to land must have been held pitch because it's not typical sure. How'd you get there so I was really wants I dislike. Why was knew that I wanted to move up into management position? Like four minute four months into working fulltime, I knew like just being. Not just being, you know being staff, clinician, sure or me fulltime for the rest of my career I just wasn't fulfilled enough in that position. So once I decided I was ready to kind of move up is just putting out application after application after application and then. Come in prepared with questions about the job about productivity expectations, and all that stuff in outpatient as I've kinda started diving into it in outpatient. It's not very. Common you're absolutely right instilled nursing, it's actually very common to have a PTA as a Dr. Best Bet or best guess on that is. It's a little bit cheaper to have a p. pay the PTA salary plus the Dr Than it is to play the PT Salary, plus the Dr my best guess but it was religious putting application put out probably fifty applications and interviews at maybe five or six so. It's really just about volume at least at that end more than anything. You just putting everything out as far as the pitch you know. I pitched it. I wanted to be a leader that I.

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.

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.

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
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

"There is only PTA argues ninety two three FM we've been doing this for a long time it is something very near and dear to our hearts we tell the stories of what foster kids go through and how parents prepare and welcome them and sometimes it's it's it's tough and sometimes it's a great fit and sometimes you know these kids are traumatized and we want to bring you one story and I want you to to listen very closely because you're gonna you're gonna hear from you can hear about a child named Joshua who has been traumatized who has a triggers and it's it's it it's just it's gonna grab your heart and it's gonna make you wanna wanna say where can I help so I want you to listen to this interview that earlier today I did with one of our great friends Tory Tosh take a listen joining us now is our great friend Tory Tosh he's the CEO of child crisis Arizona Tory great see you great to have you back how are you doing well thanks so much for having us back and we are so excited to be here and participate once again seventh annual KTA ours caring for kids seven years what does that mean to you it means a lot to us it means a lot to tile crisis Arizona as well and seven years of this continued care from the community from K. T. A. R. from you it is truly wonderful knowing that people have are back to health crisis there is on the people are there supporting what we're doing in this day and age when the government can't provide the funding needed to do this important service KTAR is there for us and so is the community and your listeners I've been told to ask about Joshua the stage is yours I don't know anything about this but I hear it's incredible all right Sir Joshua is a typical little boy in our shelter program he's anxious he's been traumatized and he's currently living with many other children but which also has a hard time with is getting out of the house for school and everyday that is the trigger for Josh what a lot of children in the child welfare system they each have different triggers Josh where every day has a variety of reasons and will have large behaviors when it's time to get ready for school and there was some of use and trauma that has to go with that story but we have such incredible staff at child crisis Arizona and they go over and above the call of duty and I want to tell you after two weeks at the beginning of the school year Joshua every single day was having meltdowns and we were trying to figure out the best way to get excited because once we got to school he was fine so we had and a staff and this staff got to know Joshua and figured out that he just loved absolutely adored spider man nice so what this staff did is went out and bought a Spiderman outfit showed up the next day when it was not his shift and was waiting at the bus stop home my gosh right in front of child crisis Arizona we have a bus stop by and the other children said oh my gosh look who's at the bus stop and so Joshua came out spider man offered his hand got on the bus and did that for several days until Josh so it was really able to start getting on the bus and getting excited about school and getting out to the bus stop to get on that bus to get to school getting on the bus became something that excited him not something the traumatized right and really what I think Joshua felt as that spider man's got his back and he really looked up to this this figure and just you know what he needed somebody to help him and it wasn't one of us with eyes and a face it was this you know imaginary spider man figure that really helps us to a get through that so for us ice we have such incredible people that love our mission and they truly want to help and reach children and some kids can't be reached by the traditional methods of talking and rewards and so was I just thought it was brilliant this employee figured out that spider man was gonna help tell a great person who works for you that that would do something like that going above and beyond and just trying to figure out how do we get this kid comfortable Tory Taj is the CEO of child crisis Arizona you know Josh was traumatized and we learned a lot about kids being traumatized over the years you kind of know what traumatized as them you kind of know their background but you don't always know what triggers them I remember story a few years ago where there was a little girl who every time she would take a shower she got triggered and I think we can figure out something awful happened to that little girl in the shower and for Joshua it was just getting ready to go to school something awful probably happened to Joshua to the point where he's traumatized what is awful feeling waking up or are even going past going to bed knowing that when you wake up the scariest part of the day is waiting for you how do you guys deal with that you know each child they have a different way of responding and so each staff they have different ways of responding to children as well so what it's trial and error we continue to try different things each and every day with the children to see what works best we don't know what their triggers are when they comment but with our professional staff our medical staff our therapists are care givers they're used to working with children and they don't give up on these children I think there's probably someone out there and I'm sure about this someone says I would I would love to to to foster Joshua we have room in our home we can do this what can you tell her body listening right now if they want to foster child what do you do first of all we would love to invite you to a meet and greet or an orientation how we do it twice a month that child crisis Arizona process simple just show up for Noreen waters at this meet and greet there is no obligation learn a little bit about what it means to be a foster parent or to even consider it right sometimes people will show up and then they will think about it for one year two years three years and it doesn't have to be somebody in child bearing age it could be an empty nester you know what all of our kids are gone we have three empty bedrooms in our house we've got all this free time on our hands maybe it's time for

The PT Cruiser: A Custom-Built Downfall
"Into the new Millennium Chrysler had a lot of good energy surrounding them stirred the prowler. He didn't do amazing. But it gave Chrysler much-needed image rebranding and got people excited for what was to come. They had spent the better part of a decade designing and engineering a new car using the most sophisticated technology on the planet and they were confident it was going to be a hit. The PT Cruiser was Chrysler's flers savior. Chrysler chose a plant into Luca Mexico right outside of Mexico City to begin production on the new car. This Chrysler plant had a reputation for building. High Quality. Cars on a shoestring budget says workers were not paid very well. I don't know This plant also made dodge see brings and strategize strategists dodge stratos the Gulf of the year. Two thousand the first year of production for the PT Cruiser was to build one hundred eighty thousand thousand of them but Chrysler immediately ran into a problem. The car in the engine were assembled on separate production lines until the engine has to go into into the engine bay. Chrysler did this all the time but because everything on the PT cruiser was machine to fit perfectly. There is literally no room for error. The engine in Bay had only point six of an inch clearance experience. Workers struggled to fit the engine into the pizza. Cruiser and for the first couple of weeks of production. The only we finished one car a day for Reference Ferrari today builds about twenty cars a day. The only way that deluca plant could do it was by stopping both assembly assembly lines until the engine had been installed in one car something needed to be done quickly if they were ever going to meet the one hundred eighty thousand car quota can you imagine being on the production line and like you're in the middle somewhere like do I'm good at making doors putting doors on this thing right those baths at the time. Just do your job put the engine. I do WANNA be the guy gets to run up and like hit the red but the next stop C. I. A.. You got to put the engineering guys what you will need. You solve the problem. Exact Gary Henson told the plant manager Luiz Rivas to practice the process for two weeks. The workers set up a three section practice area in a corner of the factory. Each sector had five workers and if they could not complete their task before the car move to the next section the line would hold until the could seems pretty reasonable at the end of the two week practice session. The plant went from one car a day to one car. Every ten minutes conventionally as production got into a groove and Chrysler selling cars that deluca plant could build one. PT Cruiser every eighty seconds. Problem solve so act. That whole thing was because there is only point. Six of an inch I think combined or light so like when you're dropping the motor and before the hoods on. Yeah you have a little bit more than half an inch to squeeze in the voter to get it in in place because they used all these cats systems engineers designed it to be as practical and like utilitarian. Tehran is possible right so they used every square inch every square inch of space and then the workers figured it out engineers are Dick's the year two thousand was huge for the PT cruiser. The car officially went on sale in March and people went crazy for them for the first year the not only came in two trim levels base model. PT's had an MS RPM of fifteen thousand four hundred fifty dollars and the highest trim level the limited addition came in at eighteen thousand two hundred sixty which according to my inflation calculator. Fifteen thousand four fifty in today's money as twenty three thousand one hundred seventy one dollars. It's more expensive than I thought. And then the top of the line trim at eighteen thousand to sixty is the same as is twenty seven thousand three hundred eighty five dollars to twenty three thousand dollar car or twenty seven thousand dollar car. What what can you get for twenty three grand today civics Cross track severe across getting a Nice Kia. If you'd like but it was going up against Camrys and yes and probably record and there's probably a lot of people like people cross shop really weird stuff all the time I bet. There's people cross shopping against like GPS Sherry Raff four four. Yeah that kind of stuff pretty pretty small compared to this right so this had five more cubic feet of cargo space raffling around our. Okay Yeah Okay Anyway at that price point even the most expensive. PT was pretty affordable customers loved the PTA for its unique heritage inspired. Styling and utilitarian design nine. Don't you ever say retro. It was reliable cheap fund and had a cool factor. It didn't look anything else on the road which was again we have to remember. This car is a huge deal back then and that was a large reason why was the looks pretty groundbreaking dealers couldn't keep these things in stock and soon weightless filled up one in guy from Louisiana bought one of the first. PT's in his State and someone stopped him on the street and immediately bought it with cash for more than he paid even though it ahead of cracked windshield. That shows the demand for these cars. The hype for the Peachy cruiser created was on par with the new beetle. At the time. It was a hit right off the bat and the bigwigs at Chrysler eating it up especially Tom Gale Tom Gale and senior vice president of design. Trevor Creed these two guys were the official hype men for the cruiser. They always knew when to drop a cruiser mania or PT fever interviewed to blow the whole situation out out of proportion so most of the quotes in this book are from these two guys and to their own horn a little bit there to their own horn there too in the PT's horn fine. It's hilarious because Tom Gale was involved in a lot of other cars at Chrysler head of design like he was one of the reasons. The Viper forgot built he. was you know the NEON S Rt.. He was head of. Sat for Awhile. Yeah he's a hot rod enthusiasts. Yeah but like he's super jazzed about the P. T. he as well but also it makes sense 'cause like last week we learned they sold over a million of these right. Yeah so he's making money honey. You know you go sell a million of anything. You're doing pretty good. That's true. We were like different people last week. uh-huh whether it was a rear luggage rack front end bra or polished. Chrome Wheels Chrysler encourage drivers to customize their. PT's Tom Tom Gale said it fits any lifestyle. Some may seem as a tribute to the classic era a street rod others as multifaceted and functional light truck in a class last of its own or some is simply a cool senate wheel boy. Tom The speed equipment manufacturing association or SEMA show in late two thousand was packed. Full of custom PD cruisers. This is when it gets really good. There was a Louis Vitton. Cruiser Maytag hewer cruiser cruiser. Even a futuristic woody concept Tom Gale personally debuted gt cruiser concept with a turbocharged. Two point. Four liter inline nine four but the most exciting had to be the Brian. Setzer of Self Setzer cruiser Accidentally Typing Seltzer. I I thought his name was. Brian Seltzer L. Just so these are all just one off. Build that people brought to seem Became you have your laptop in front of you. I suggest you look up the volume peekers right now. I'll describe the picture that I see Yup Bright Candy Blue Chrome wheels. It has red flames going down the side with lock texts that says vote them in and the flames and a guy standing outside at Planer. Red Guitar Guy. That's fine Seltzer. Dude if you took the year two thousand and boiled down into a syrup the boom cruiser is just that like Jeremiah mentioned. It's painted in electric blue with yellow and orange flames. This was customized is by Chrysler. PACIFICA advanced product design center. It features a built in guitar rack. An amplifier inside the cab and the word vote on the fender which was actually a promotion for Seltzer. 's album of the same name. Oh my tail lights and bright orange. Leather

Working Women: Why The U.S. Is Behind
"Last week, the indicator was in Atlanta for the big annual conference. It's put on by the American economic association. This is like one of the big biggest meetings of the year for communists. The no not one. The this. Is it just in case? There was any ambiguity. There were thirteen thousand communists, there you could spot the conference goers because they were all rushing around in their suits, and they had named tags around their necks like these red Landers and their complementary eight eight-year conference tote bags and also, you know, you kinda spot them because they were mostly they're mostly men dudes. They were mostly dudes economics has been an overwhelmingly, male occupation. For a long time. Francine Blau is a female economist at Cornell, I got my PHD in the nineteen seventies. And at that time, I think women were getting about seven percent of PHD's economics. And now it's way up there at thirty five percent or something like that. How many years have you been coming to this conference over forty years? Yeah. I look at the crowd. And it looks very mitt mail to me when you look at this crowds. All these people walking around like, what is what is your reaction to it has it changed? Yes. Yes. I mean, it looks so much more female than so I guess it's your standard of reference, but you know, sometimes now there are lines in the female restaurant. Lines for the ladies room in economic indicator all its own side of progress sorts. This is the indicator. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Garcia this year. A lot of the discussions at the conference were about gender and about the metoo movement within economics, but Francine has been studying gender and economics for decades. She's done groundbreaking work on women in the workplace and on the gender pay gap. Klett, Francine says there is this particular economic indicator that's been on her mind lately. It's the female labor participation rate. For instance, says it's been kind of stuck for years now and after decades of leading the pack. The US has started falling behind. Support for NPR and the following message. Come from we work. How do you feel about your office? Is it just a space for your company? Or is it a space to help you grow your company from new HQ's two satellite offices with we work. You can find a space that works for you. Visit we dot co slash space matters. To learn more. Support also comes from NPR sponsor male champ. Male champ does so much more than Email. They've outgrown their name with automation, ad campaigns and audience management mail chimp. It helped your business outgrow its name to not just male male champ. The labor force participation rate. That is the percentage of US adults within a given age group who either have a job or who don't have a job, but are looking for one. So you can break down the labor force participation rate in a bunch of ways, including by gender, and that was what Francine Blau has been doing. So if you take all the women in the US ages twenty five to fifty four the percentage of them who are in the labor force is. Is its best. Seventy five percent that is today's indicator about seventy five percent of women ages twenty five to fifty four in the US are in the labor force the comparable figure for men would be about ninety percent. So ninety percent of men ages twenty five to fifty four are in the labor force. Seventy five percent does represent a huge gain. By the way, back in the nineteen seventies fewer than half of women were in the labor force that number climbed steadily up and up for decades until about the year two thousand but after that, it kind of flattened off for a while we've stopped progressing in the US while other countries have continued to see rising female labor force patient and the US used to have one of the highest female labor force participation rates. And now we have one of the lower ones of the Vance 't economies Denmark, UK, Canada, Australia, all have higher female labor participation rates than the US in that. So. China and Thailand, which lead us to the question. Why the US has obviously a huge economy, and for example, women go to college at higher rates than men go to college. So what is going on? Why is the labor force participation rate for women in the US so much lower than it is for men. Well, there's a lot of reasons, but I'd say the major reason is probably at family family more than eighty percent of women will become mothers at some point in their lives. And when they do they hit a bunch of different obstacles in the workforce the first obstacle being employers discriminate against mothers. It was a fascinating experiment where they sent resumes to employers, and they indicated in the resume that a woman was a parent by saying her extra activity was PTA. Whereas they suggested the woman was not apparent by saying her extra activity was block association. Neighborhood associations, and these were just fake resumes. That were equally qualified people that the ones that the employers believe were mom's got got lower call backs and Francine says this did not happen for men. But Francine says she believes people tend to stereotype what a mother is a mother puts her family first. So she won't be as dedicated to her job. Whereas she says a father is providing for his family. So he will put his job. I in fact, meant and to see their salaries go up after they have children, whereas women tend to see their pay fall relative to women who don't have children. So the end result is that it's harder for mothers to get hired. But once they are hired or if they already have a job when they have a child they face a different kind of discrimination women with kids are less likely to be promoted or to get assigned important projects. This is a specially true for women with advanced degrees in high paying professions like finance, and then there's just a pure home economics of it all the. Thing is child care. Childcare Francine says the US is one of the only developed countries that does not have free care for young children. As a result women will often stay out of the workforce to care for their child. Childcare can be expensive and that cost can wipe out or nearly wipe out any economic benefit. The woman would get from working also men tend to get paid more than women even for the same job. So if there's a man in a woman making this decision together, it often just makes more economic sense for the women to stay home while the man works, then add to that the fact that the woman is likely to be held back from promotions. And bonuses when she does go back to work, and you have a system where a lot of women just choose to stay out of the workforce entirely. For instance, says that to change this the US could try doing what other developed countries have done countries like France, Sweden, Germany in the UK an offer state-funded care for young children. I think these initiatives to provide free public preschool care. Would be very intriguing. So I mean, I care about this issue because I am a woman, but. Is this an important issue economically? We talk a lot about economic growth. But one way we grow is really by bringing more and more people into the paid labor force where they produce items that are counted in gross national product, also if he working within the home, you're producing things about you that aren't counted. So that there's a little trade off there. But basically economic growth is furthered by the entry of people into the labor force. But I think the most fundamental thing is by not fully utilizing all the talents of a major segment of our population. We're not fully realizing, our efficiency and productivity. Francine says this is a specially true in fields where there aren't many women in the first place tech economics where a whole part of the population that could be contributing isn't at least not on the level that it could be. There was women who proceed. It'd me who I look up to. And I think she was entered the field in the nineteen fifties. And she said her husband dropped her off at an an American economic association meetings. And he said Karen, this is this is five thousand men, and you know, I mean, so it's kind of hard to be when I was first coming in. It was very hard for me. I was very small minority, you know, in grad school, and it was very hard. And it just is not hard for me now. Because a lot of the guys are my friends. I don't see them as male or female, see them as friends, and there are just a lot more women than than there used to be. And it looks like there will be more women ages twenty five to thirty four have seen a big jump in labor force participation in the last couple of years. Young men though have actually seen a decline during that period. The indicators produced by Constanza Gardo edited by Patty Hirsch and his a production of NPR.

"To on the PTA site and going to the PTA dot org backlash family digital families. And they can find in both locations. Lots of guidance lots of resources, I hope they can make the events that they have an opportunity to talk all their parents to really learn how other families are dealing with these issues as well. I realize some of this is just unrolling at the the final week. September. But what do, you know at this point as far as I'm curious about any potential regional differences that may exist there certainly are regional differences and interests as so many so many things in our lives. Go be a politics and religion and just lifestyle in general. Do you notice any any differences regionally speaking as as digital issues? Go these events are just kicking off. So we haven't had an opportunity yet to see what some of those regional differences are. But I, but I think you you hold on a really important issue, which is that there are regional differences and different families talk about these issues in different ways. And one of the reasons that we are so keen to do these events on the ground and make them very local, what's so that families can take this guidance and make it their own and figure out how it works for them in their communities and also sometimes address specific issues that may be happening in their communities. So for instance, some communities. They have more access to technology than other communities. Something may have a particular bullying issue that's happening in their local school. You think parents and families and opportunity to talk about those things at these events is is what we hope to accomplish. Yeah. That certainly makes a lot of sense then as far as trying to maybe get out front of some of these issues understanding that the exist, that's probably at least a decent head start. Then certainly and one of the things actually that's in inside of these inside of these toolkits is access to a digital literacy library that that we've created online for educators, teachers and educators to use easy. Downloadable free lesson plans on critical thinking thoughtful sharing bullying prevention, managing your your online privacy because more and more teachers at the local level are being asked to take on this kind of education, and we want to make it as easy for them to do it as possible and. As seamless as possible. And then Finally, I know part of the idea was to to sort of the the the fight against online. Bullying is definitely an issue that it's probably not going to go away. And I would imagine that as as different cases pop up their different parameters around all of them. But how does Facebook feel right now about how much they've got their arms around. What the issue looks like? Well, almost always when you see it offline that we see online you see bullying bring offline as well. And so one of the reasons that we are so focused on local communities ensuring that we're providing lesson plans.

"PTA. every segment we do asks certain questions, and then some answers start to swirl around, and then I get additional questions such as the nature of the week. Hey, everybody Mark Davis in for Michael Medved. Follow me on Twitter at Mark. Davis. Follow Michael the show the Twitter feed their at Medved show and Michael Medved dot com. So I just shared my incredibly anecdotal informal Twitter poll with like a three to one response in favor of we will be energized. As never before if the Cavanaugh. Nomination goes down in flames. Because so many people you remember when I talked to Kim strassel last week on this show. And I love Kim. She's been doing some magnificent writing. She has some wonderful posts today about all this cabin on nonsense. But she wrote a piece last week that I pushed back lovingly and respectfully she said manifest Cavanaugh thing goes down, and they're gonna lose the house. They're gonna lose the Senate. It's a huge blow Republicans are gonna slink off with their tails between our legs. We're going to be dispirited, blah, blah, blah. She may be right. She may be right. But I feel like I've had a kind of a thumb on the pulse of the country for a couple of years year if not before and I gotta tell you if the left gets away with us. I am in the mood to make them pay. And that means ballot. Chris I'm in Texas, how much how much more how much more can I hurt the left? I'm in Texas. It'll be up to y'all in Ohio and Florida. And purple states. And and in in November, it will be up to about Missouri. It'll be up to make Claire mccaskill pay for this in Montana. It'll be your job to make Jon tester pay for this in Indiana. A Big Joe Donnelly pay for this in West Virginia to make Joe Manchin pay for this. They must be made to to to to be accountable for their participation. But it's it's it's weird because these were people in some cases who were going to vote against it. Anyway. Do you blame him for that too? I mean, in a way I kind of do because I miss the days when there was a. How should I phrase it just a general goodwill agreement that a president gets his supreme court nominations? Republicans still do this do that for Democrats. Barack Obama gave us Elena Kagan Sonia Sotomayor for crying out loud. View the constitution. Is this living breathing document? We make it up as we go along. But Obama's president that he won elections have consequences. Go ahead. You get you get your your choices. Do we get that? In return, apparently not. Let's head to the Bronx. Which is always a good idea. J? Hey, Mark Davis in for Michael. How are you? My friends on the left and my friends on the right to me. It's it's amazing. How logic and intelligence all fall down every everybody on the left thinks they Kevin did this. This woman and everybody thinks he doesn't he didn't do it. You know? Where where nobody knows nobody should be. Well, that's true. But let's let's not have a myth of equivalency because there's the only reason to fully invest in the accusers is you hate Trump and hate break Cavanaugh because there's no other basis for doing it. Now, I'll be the first to tell you. I think every all conservatives will join me, we don't know. But in terms of believability in terms of credibility, objectively Brad Kavanagh owns it. Absolutely. Owns it with an honorable lifetime. No evidence to the contrary nothing to support these these out of the woodwork claims three and a half decades later, and I'll just add in because there is a lot of tribalism these days, but if somebody's trying to pull this crap on a on a president, Hillary Clinton nominee, who's a constitution hating judicial tyrant. I'd make exactly the same complaint and say that such threadbare accusations should not shelve that nomination. Either. Well, look at stormy Daniels. Right. You know, the lowest position in society of star. And she made this claim she turned out to be correct. And she was going against the president. I'm sorry. I'm sorry turned out to be correct about what? She had sex with the president. Really, how do you know? Donald Trump denied it because he paid her. Silence. Eating you're aware. Some you're aware you are aware that right before an election that you are aware that right before an election. People will open up big checkbooks to make things go away. You realize that right now, I'm not Senator telling you. He would never get into somebody. That was holding him up for that. This is Michael guess what? If you've got if you've got somebody. If you've got somebody about to blast something wide open before an election will sometimes innocent people. Write a big check. Yes. They will is that the case where the president I have no idea, but I just a bit of free vice I'd avoid walking around like, you know, I always know what you don't know. And I really try hard to to make sure that we don't walk around. No it saying that we know things when we all right? Here's something. I absolutely no be right back on the Michael Medved Show.
