I'm Mark tell Maria Dylan for the second time in just three years of firestorm is threatening the city of Santa Rosa. This time, the shady fire is bearing down from the North East in between the burn scars from the tubs and the nuns fire just three years ago. Thousands of people have fled their homes. Reporter Shannon Lin has been speaking to some of them this afternoon, and she joins me now from the Finley Community Center on the western side of town where evacuees are checking in. Hi, Shannon. Cheritto. I cannot imagine the exhaustion and worry that these people must be experiencing right now. What if they told you Well, they're tired. You know they've been out since last night. They were texted evacuation of worth, and many of them had go back ready. Somerset and families also had evacuation plan set up, so they all arrived at the same zone. Some of them are circling back to their neighborhoods to check on their homes before local authorities walked off most of Eastern Santa Rosa, and now it's just a waiting game. They're either waiting for shelter waiting for updates from Cal fire. And just waiting to see when they can go home. And if they're home, they're going to be intact. A listener tweeted at me this afternoon. Santa Rosa's all in PTSD and technically that comes later post disaster, But she's right. This is really bad traumatic. What's the mood there? There's a sense of resignation. You know, Santa Rosa was devastated by fires in 2017 and wildfires have only increased in numbers unspent, so residents are kind of just accepting their fate. Almost and for some, that means trying to be positive. I saw a couple of kids playing baseball at a temporary evacuation zone and their families told me that they're just trying to maintain normalcy as much as possible. And I spoke to Jordan kept Nedda who lived in east Diana Rosa. He says he was obsessively monitoring the The new fires just last month, and when they didn't get the evacuation evacuation notice, he thought they were in the clear just recently, three weeks ago, unpacked my stuff. And then and then like and then I was like I was so sure I was like, No, we're good. We're going to make it this year. And then my sister Mom found that what we have been through October..

Briana Holt is the Queen of Muffins
"BRIANNA welcome to most street. Thank you so much. Maybe we should start with a description of where you work because it's an old gas station turned into coffee shop pastry. Destination. So so what does it look like and what is it like working at? Gas? Station. It's really beautiful. It's like a big white building. It's got that kind of awning out front like it was never actually gas station. It was actually a body shop they worked on brakes and shocks and cars they would lift him up inside that kind of thing. So it has that really beautiful sixties shape to it. You know it's kind of wide and lots of front window big windows in the front and a big awning out front into the parking lot. So there's a lot of room to hang out there the light streams in and it's basically a big open space that we built a kitchen. So you have this. Vote interesting view of baking. This is a quote from you. You're talking about a tray of biscuits. They referring to the biscuits do the thing that I've asked them to do already they're alive the little. Hands they pop up in the right way. The top looks right. They lean over just a little. That is the moment that keeps me doing it. So you have this personification of of baking goods as friends or or or people you like to spend time with is that right? Yeah, I think. So I mean I think it's. Like anything you do with someone else kind of like a transaction of sorts you know I'm trying to. Coax. Something out of the ingredients or the combination of ingredients in the oven or something like that I think. Yeah. especially with biscuits, it's easy to talk about that idea because every single little thing you do with your hands and your fingers results in that That top or that lien or the flake you know. So yeah, that's kind of how I think of it. I think I read somewhere that you have PTSD when it comes to muffins because you've made thousands of them is that true? Have you got onto some could've recovery clinic and our back into muffins again man it's tough. I would say I'm very very slowly gingerly tenderly coming back around to the MUFFIN. But yeah, when I was probably like twenty four. I went back to Martha's vineyard for a short time. I was in love with this guy this musician that lived there and I thought. If I leave my sort of post college what's coming next kind of life and I go back to Martha's Vineyard we're GONNA, fall in love and get married and lived together forever, and so I went back and I A worked at this. Pretty, crappy little sandwich up and. I Made Muffins at like five in the morning every morning. So many I mean I can't I don't even know how to talk about it. We would make the mixture in like. Huge vats and then store them in home. Depot. Buckets. Five. Gallon. Home Depot buckets in this dirty walk in and the place was owned by this crazy guy. Who has never really there he just kind of left it up to the teenagers in the twenty year olds and we would come in hung over and it'd be like five am and I'd be scooping like really crappy muffins out of these five gallon buckets. But. We had to make them. You know that was his recipe, the muffin mixture, and then you added blueberries are like Bananas Walnuts or whatever, and and there were huge. They were like the size of like a like a softball and we sold so many I can't even begin to tell you and I just never liked them thought the could be better, but it wasn't my job to change it and I just saw so many muffins it became this like Muffin nightmare so. Let's talk about your interesting way of combining ingredients. I remember last summer you did a chocolate cake with juniper in it or Pineapple and married Rosemary or apple with fed. So you have this herbal savory mix was something fruity or sweet you just end up doing this because. It's two in the morning and you just chance upon it spent. Months Thinking about these combinations in scientifically. Both I think all of the above Yes. Sometimes it just. I mean, it sounds silly and cliche but sometimes, it just POPs into my head. I think that probably happens with a lot of people out there the more that I eat and the more that I see food around in the world the more things there are kind of Ping Pong around in my brain and so if I'm thinking about making something, you know it's almost like just reaching into like a bucket of fish or something you know there's so much that I like and so much that I've seen 'em excited about that Sometimes. Something will just jump out to me or I kind of want to. Make something. That feels right for the season or something like that. That chocolate juniper cake was sort of like a fall winter wintertime You know that that the inception of that cake was like deep winter thinking about like richness and cold weather and sort of like this is gonna sound silly but like rich beautiful kind of medieval feasts you know and like what might be on the table and something kind of mellow but strong flavored It's also really beautiful juniper berries. Gorgeous. It's not really a barrier it's almost more like a pinecone. What we do at the bakeries roast to them, and they start to release their oils and they get this crazy fragrant smell fills the kitchen we try to do it. When it's not busy 'cause it is almost of weird crazy smell and people aren't necessarily sure if they like it but then you grind it up and we make ground toasted juniper and it so it just. It's really beautiful smell it's it's deep and Woodsy, but also floral, and it just seems to pair really nicely with chocolate and it's it's really good. It's almost like you bite into it and you're not exactly sure what it is.
Parenting in The Time of Corona
"For almost every working person in this country, what it meant to go to work changed radically in March and what it meant to go to school changed at exactly the same time between Graham Adams lives in Indianapolis she has four kids at home she is a single parent I have an eighth grader. I have a fifth grader in a second grader and then I have a one in Preschool Patrice works fulltime at Indiana University. School of Public Health it's a desk job so she can do it from home. That's all set at the same time though Patrice his four kids were all suddenly at home with her trying to go to class online and this presented a bunch of challenges. For Instance Patrice did not have five computers at home. We basically share it devices. If I didn't have meetings, I would pass my device onto whoever did have google meet for their class. The second issue was space there were five of Them in one house. So Patrice developed a system, my daughter WHO's in middle school? She's up in her room. My fifth grader sits at the bar in the kitchen I sit at the dining room table in have my work set-up Patrice was especially concerned about her second grader. He's a special needs student and structure and consistency are really important to him. Patrice says learning off screen and the whole idea of being at school while he's actually at home, which is really difficult for him and so Patrice says she needs to watch him all the time. Make sure he's focusing doing. Okay. Absorbing lessons I'm in I shot A. Fifth grader but I'm an ear shot and I shot of my second grader. So if I hear something I can jump up from where I am and go over to him to assist him with what's going on and to tell him to pay attention and then there's portrays youngest her preschooler there was no zoom class for him at all so patrice improvise I'm just going to be honest with you I turn on Youtube and say go elmo's teaching you today We're going to watch a loop of elmo videos and then I may take I will take a minute and may read him a book. So Patrice is trying to do her job in a house with four kids at the same time she's trying to make sure her second graders do milquet with the screen learning and she's trying to make sure her little is occupied and she's trying to make sure kids aren't like on their computers and phones all the time, and she's also trying to make sure that everybody gets in a little outdoor time like time to. Be a kid we actually go outside for recess we get some fresh air. We take a walk around the block or we have a basketball hoop in our driveway we play basketball, and of course, all of this is on top of you know regular mom stuff caring for the kids kissing booze wiping noses, rubbing the household cooking, the dishes, paying the bills all that stuff, and you know this has been patrice his life for six months. I'm extremely exhausted Friday will. After we got done with learning on Friday I, took a shower because I could not remember the last shower I took. I shouldn't say that on this interview but. I can remember the last. Hour and then I lay down in Saturday I didn't leave the house. I literally needed an entire day to recover. It was taxing like I literally felt it in my body. Like the how how the week wait on me It was a lot. For many people, it's too much millions of people are in situations like Patricia's and the job of parenting suddenly feels like it's not always compatible with a job in a lot of mixed gender couples where both people work women still take on the lion's share of housework and childcare, and so as a result of all these things coming together, women have been dropping out. Of the labor force last month six, hundred thousand men reentered the workforce at the same time five thousand women dropped out of the workforce meaning they stopped looking for jobs that today's indicator five thousand women leaving the workforce in August. So Patrice for her part says, she does not have a choice she has to work all of our kids are counting on her. And a third of children in the US aren't single parent households and those parents they have to make it work even if it's not working the bind single parent families are in right now is unreal and a lot of them even if they can't stop working, they are losing hours or having to cut back and losing income in that way. So I, mean in that way, Patrice just doesn't. Have a choice. She did have a choice about sending her kids back to school. So Patrice his district in Indianapolis. They said, you can send your kids back to school or you can continue with virtual learning for a semester at first patrice his choice teams really clear. The schooling from home working from home thing just didn't feel sustainable. It's almost like I had. PTSD. DidN'T WANNA go back there. I literally said. I am going to call the school and see if they have spots where the atoms children. When school opens up. We will it, but then you know her calculus really changed because there was a pretty serious cove outbreak. In Indianapolis, over the summer now bridges really had to worry about herself or her children possibly getting sick also just the quality of the Education Patrice as the school has actually done it miraculously good job it got laptops out to all the students. So now all of her kids have their own devices she says, the teacher is tried really hard. Even still she says the education everybody got. Nowhere. Near what it was when they were like in physical school. So she had this like really tough decision to make well to be honest it was an agonizing decision. It was a decision that I went back and forth. A couple of times and so patrice had to make this decision that millions of parents are having to agonize over. She weighed the pros and cons, and finally she made her call opted to keep them home and healthy, and so at least for the next six months, Patrice GonNa keep trying to do basically the impossible work parent teacher. Cook. Clean fix a sink. I may say these things in in exhaustion. Sin Them Back to school but in all honesty I'm in the virtual learning I'm in this actual any for the long haul she's in virtual learning for the long haul and on that is similar to decision you may to right right. So my preschooler is back in a classroom, which is great. Her School is licensed as a daycare center so it's able to open fulltime. My fourth grader isn't home working on her laptop, but she's pretty independent for the most part. Answer. And also, we indicator wanted to see if we could potentially help battle with the educating of children. So if your kids have questions about money. Or business please send it in. You can send US voice memo at indicator NPR DOT ORG that's indicator at NPR dot org just have your kids say their name and their age and the
Arian Moayed On How Fear Never Leaves, And Why You Should Just Keep Going
"I believe in curiosity I just I. Just think that we can't do anything without it early and just asking people obey the is basically a version of empathy. Enemy. Empathizing with WHO people are and what they do over were you the curious kid like is this something that's been part of your life or somebody who cultivated? Yeah. I mean. I think the circumstances of my life you know being born in Iran and then moving here as young immigrants in the eighties where Iran was like enemy enemy number one if you recall. And like Iran Russia which kind of back there again I kind of felt that like you know I was so curious about this world is culture and I think that's kind of where it started also you know It's crazy. It was crazy. My parents don't speak any the my spirit's English is not great. The they came here when they were forty and fifty. The I mean it's not like they. You know I'm thirty seven. So like imagining myself in three years time taking all of an IV and Chrissy and saying, Hey, well, going to move to China and we're GONNA make this. We're going to make life better in China as a show I mean that's All you can be as curious I. Guess. Yeah. I guess. So how so how old were you when you actually let on? Well, we laughed Iran you know it's hard to tell because at time here was crazy there was a war happening and I think a lot of you especially you a bit younger don't don't really remember that whole window of of our history and our relationship with Sir Yeah, the Middle East Yeah. Yeah it's complicated. It's long and it's GonNa either bore fascinate all of you guys. But the the the the the truth is we you know it's it's. It's it's hard to talk about because there's so many levels to like how crazy it is. One is my mom was married to my dad at the age of thirteen. My mom was thirteen Wendo arranged marriage. My mom is pretty standard. You know it was on the outs in that time period. Yeah. But my parent, my mom's mom was a single mom she was the youngest you know she couldn't make she couldn't make it happen, and so she had to like you know she had to like give I, guess her her daughter La youngest daughter away and so then my dad, my dad's they were more religious than my mom's side was and so. They got arranged. My mom had her first kid at fifteen years old her second kid at sixteen and Arthur kid eighteen, and then had me when she was thirty five. So my siblings are seventeen eighteen in. I'm sorry. Yes. Some teen eighteen basically twenty years than me. So, and then and then the revolution hit seventy nine. And then a war hit right after that because Saddam invaded with you know and then got the support of the United States. You know because we of the Iranian situation and then we were in a war. And so everyone was closed inside as is bombings happening all over Tehran all over the border, and so we were indoors and and you know when when people get doors and there's a lot of fear in the air of uncertainty, you procreate you know and so the baby boom in Iran happened at that moment in seventy nine to eighty five, where like sixty percent of Iranian. Population right now in Iran is under the age of forty. Fascinating you walk down the street and everyone's young. So anyway and then and then. CRAZILY my brother. My oldest brother was sixteen. When he graduated high school in Iran, his name is Amir And then he went to A. He got accepted to a school in. CHICAGO. Right. When he was sixteen. So sixteen twentyish he's in Chicago, ish issue like something like that, and then the revolution hit. And then my brother was like should I come back and. My parents were like you're never coming back here will come to you. And then in that time period. My. Youngest my brother that's closest to me who seventeen his name is. Oh, mead omen was drafted in the Iran Iraq war. And fought three years in that war. With a couple of my cousins who are who are who have passed away who died in that war one of them, which data that were, and then my brother was in war my sister was in the middle there. I was just born. We got the F out of town and we went we went as far as my dad's connections and money and. You know and you know connections could could could take you in that was Dubai. We've got to Dubai who lived in the Arab Emirates and we were there for off and on for about five years and then and then we and then you know a long period of time you know no one heard it from my brother was fight in the war. And trying to and trying to try to like move three pieces ahead while also like making sure the pieces back here it's a chess game you know and and dangerous one. And then my dad then. We had were that Amigos live. We went back to Iran. Might he got back? He was no nine, hundred twenty you know fought three years in a war in a city called Oh mead his name is omitted, which means hope and wherever like was slaughtered murdered and died because it was a brutal war brutal war and he he's a twenty year old brainwashed you know. PTSD. Kid. And in that time period as we're figuring out to go back to Dubai and come back, my sister falls in love. Falls in love with the guy and and then that made things tricky and then, and then we all laughed and my sister stay. So I- sister got the states in two thousand and three we left in eighty five. So An and then we came to the states and again you know the analogy that the Chinese like us like you and me and you taking your family and your son going to China or whatever language that you don't know our culture, the No, and you're like, this is the best news for us. Now you know you're GonNa, you're not going to be easy and so in all of that, you just get you know a a sense of like the world in a very kind of complicated way. A very young age and and not only do they not speak the language they don't know what? Christmases. They don't know what Hanukkah is. They don't have any idea why people are going to church all the time. They have no clue why the cars are this way they don't know why the food is patching. There's nothing that is familiar. There's nothing that you can empathize with as as an Iranian living in the states and being like I know this thing and so in all that you are learning rapidly. You know a very drastic way and so that curiosity might have had something to do with it. I'm not really sure
Does Law Enforcement Need Mental Health Care?
"Gabe Howard calling into the show today we have Gabriel Nathan. Gabriel is the executive director of eighty-seven recovery. Diaries and they produced a film series called beneath the vest first responder mental health and features police officers, EMS personnel, dispatchers, fire service all individuals talking about trauma and complex PTSD Gabriel. Welcome to the show I. Thanks for having me. It's great to be here. Gabriel. Today we're going to be talking about law enforcement reform and I know that you have a lot of thoughts on the subject first of all before I really get into the. Weeds of the question would I have found is whenever you are taking a position that is critical in any way of law enforcement or attempts to raise questions even about the way law enforcement agencies do anything. It is extremely important to establish your own bona fide because anybody who steps up to challenge law enforcement is immediately regarded with suspicion. Paranoia is dismissed as a quote Lib tarred Troll anti-cop Antifa, whatever I'm none of those things I am someone who for the last twenty years has been an advocate for slain police officers and their families through editorials commentaries in newspapers I've attended over ten police funerals in Philadelphia, down to Maryland. I have done a lot of advocacy work for law enforcement in regard to mental health of first responders. I'm very well aware of the suicide rate for police officers. I am someone who knows law enforcement culture. I am someone who has a respect for police officers and what they do, and so I just want people to know that I am doing this from a place of love and concern and from a position of someone who believes ardently that they're absolutely needs to be changed and radical reimagining of law enforcement across the board. Thank you Gabriel for say and all that, and I agree with many of your points and I wanna point out that you were a recent guest on another podcast I have the pleasure of hosting not crazy and you had so much to say, well it it's built over into a second podcast. I strongly encourage all of our listeners to head over to central dot com slash not crazy and check out that interview. Alright. Gabriel to get started. You believe that in many ways we're recruiting the wrong people and that a lot of our problems start early even before police officers get into the academy. Yes. Look at the people who go into law enforcement. Okay. A lot of people decide they WANNA be cops when their children, they're watching shows like cops they're watching shows like law and order they're watching the weapon movies even as far as Hill Street Blues I would say that this problem started with Hillstreet Blues, the opening credits of Hillstreet Blues. I, love the music and then the garage door opens and the Plymouth fury is in the garage with red lights bursting out of the graduates exciting, right so who is drawn to that Profession Action Junkies? It's people who want that adrenaline rush and then we put them in situations where they're in a constant state of hyper arousal they're always looking around they're doing the head swivel. Someone's GonNa hurt me as someone GonNa, shoot me. In a twenty five year career most police officers never fire their weapon. Never fire their weapon once. Many. Many police officers never pulled their weapon and yet that's the kind of human being that is drawn to that profession and I have had people tell me well, we pull in people who are really resilient well is that what you're doing or are you pulling in people who are craving action and are not necessarily maybe the most empathic people because a law enforcement agency can't function if a police officer responds to a call and then starts falling apart emotionally because they can't process what they saw. So maybe law enforcement is either consciously or subconsciously trying to pull people in who maybe don't have that kind of empathic response. That's not who I want riding around in a patrol car with a firearm and the power of arrest.

One topic dominates today show and Matty's volume unit being crowned the twenty twenty you eight for champions the winners Kinsey Komen's goal the difference between the two sides I ever player in fact that Champions League final to school against his old Jamie Lee, frank and Craig Burley with me to reflect on the final Craig that wasn't quite as high scoring as we as expected however the best. The best team one and appear she will get CIANCI's the third clearly. Stating the obvious but there were good chances. You'd expect much better protect the MVP chance not long before halftime quite an embarrassing finish. To be honest and I personally think by got macho a first gear. In terms of you know what they can produce. were, able to control the game and when the Champions League yeah. This wasn't quite what we are expecting. Frank. Why not? Well because of clumsiness, some some players and and just mentioned MVP I think I'm not sure that mini. Was the best team overall during the season of chimpanzee. Yes. But then that game I think they were in control of the game but personally, I had some chances to to to surprise him to kill them even and. The fantastic new year in goal I. Think. Could have lead the game in the first half but again, mini chinses wasted by a the strikers and I think Keefe I can regime the game I. Think the defense is the defense is better than the tax which pulls them what we were expensive causality. Wasn't but I think a good example of that was choice at NC. Flake makes in terms of having Komen playing therapeutic. Essentially telling us you know what we think insulin common can dominate one one situation sending doing that we don't need. WE'RE NOT GONNA force funds Davis to get forward down the left hand side because kids can take care that. Finish it cannot do that as well. He talks signed. Davis on the overlapping runs and I think is by design that Afonso Davis did not really have a for dissipation in attack he was holding back almost as if to say, you know what this is our way of not dropping off we're going to maintain our hide line while we're not gonNA take many chances going forward and I think what you saw from by Munich is they played A conservative game with a lot of talented players and bathing. Not WanNa take chances really going forward because the the time that they did take those chances going forward than PSG had opportunities and when we say that PSG had opportunities, we're talking about PTSD team who had the chances fall to the right people. It's too bad is to Neymar is to Maria three clear opportunities in my opinion. In the first half they not take advantage of and from then on it was difficult to see PTSD to get after by Munich particularly after by an escort PSG got disorganized, they were more concerned about the files, the yellow cars, the physicality of the game rather than playing the game a no better example of that that Neymar who in the second half had difficulties trapping the ball passing. The ball doing the basic stock he was busy drawing fouls but not actually having an impact on the game. We
Michigan announces $600 million Flint water crisis settlement
"A a year year and and a a half half of of negotiations, negotiations, the the state state of of Michigan Michigan will will reportedly reportedly announced announced $600 $600 million settlement with the people of Flint later this week. Settlement will cover citizens of Flint, who were adversely affected by the lead tainted water that began flowing into their homes in 2014. Although the state claims that the water quality has met federal standards for three years now, many residents told us they don't trust officials and they still don't trust the water. One person told us yesterday that no amount of money can heal the suffering of those impacted by this crisis. And the Corona virus pandemic has just made the situation worse. Money. Money don't equal help, like you know you could be rich and die. It ain't the same. Craig Davis is a lifelong Flint resident who has lived to the devastation brought on by the city's tainted water crisis. It's almost like we got PTSD with the water because you won't really drink it comfortably like You know, saying people actually lost, they live to it. He's also a Corona virus survivor and says he and his neighbors are struggling to deal with both issues. At the same time, you got people with just taking extra money out their pockets. Just going to the grocery store and just buying up the water and grocery stores. But you add on the pandemic, not a water is not even there to even grab. The water crisis started in 2014 when as a cost cutting measure, officials switch the city's water source from Lake You're on to the Flint River, but the water was improperly treated, allowing lead and other chemicals from the pipes to leach into the water supply. The city switched back to its original water source in 2015. My heart breaks because the fact of the matter is, I handed them the glasses of water. CBS News was on the ground in Flint for months. At the height of the crisis, we heard firsthand from parents about how they believed the tainted water affected their Children. When I hear my son gave up at night and cry because his bones hurt There's nothing I can give him. There's nothing I can do for him to take away his pain. I feel completely helpless. Although tens of thousands of plaintiffs are reportedly set to receive a payout as part of the settlement, Much of the money is expected to go toward the Children affected by the crisis. Flint Mayor Sheldon Neely says he hopes the settlement provides some sense of victory for families allows Flint residents to move forward in a positive way. Getting out of the mindset of being victims, but more of Victor's on that's what we need to move as a community. Theo office of Michigan's attorney general would not confirm details of the agreement, saying quote way and the other parties are bound by a federal court order to maintain the confidentiality of detailed settlement and mediation communications until we reach a certain point Now, as you know, $600 million is being reported as the payout but just for context. If you divide that by Flint residents, most of whom are eligible for money, that's $6000 per person. And again that wass CBS's Adrian Diaz reporting well, many

"The human factor of this is you know as a psychological professional marine one of the things that really clicks in my head is how stubborn we are to change. We we just really are resistant to change because we kinda like we kinda like oftentimes starting in our own dysfunction. and. Right. So I'll share a bit of a personal story My Dad was Vietnam Vet he did to tour of duty, and so he came back with what we would now call ptsd growing up in that environment that was normal for me. So he was a little emotionally sensitive and so we as the kids especially kind of. very careful around dad not to upset Him in a way that is not normal for kids of those ages So as I grew up, I continued to contorts myself in my own head about what was quote model when I had to face the fact that I was. My upbringing was not from a psychological perspective wasn't healthy. then. It forced me to either continue to live in that kind of illusory world or face all of the things that that upbringing did to me to make my habits ineffective. Not. Blaming my dad, he served his country very honorably unfortunately, that service in his case impacted us as kids, and so it's my responsibility now as an adult. To. Attend to my own inner workings to to bring them to a place that is healthy for me as an adult and leader, and so I think often as humans we we are Dented is my very pedestrian word We become dented over the course of life and we just have to get the dense pulled out. which by the way? That sometimes, it's not only not easy, but it's also can be very painful. Yeah right for big defender of that. Rain into. Lender hurt. Well I'm getting it pulled back out hurts too but it's not exactly. It's not exactly pleasant either by the way we're with Maureen Metcalf and she is the author and of this book and Great Book entitled Innovative Leaders Guide to transforming organizations and you're listening to or here on a new direction.
6 Ways to Survive Survivor Guilt
"Have. You ever made it through something awful or survived a disaster and instead of feeling good, you felt this heaviness in the pit of your stomach. When. Tragedy befalls those around us. But leaves US unscathed. Some of US feel really guilty. Welcome back to savvy psychologist I'm your host Dr J. Woo. Every week will help you meet life's challenges with evidence based research, a sympathetic ear and zero judgment. Today we talk about how to understand and cope with survivor guilt. Survivor. Guilt happens when a person perceives themselves to have done something wrong by surviving catastrophe or injustice while others died or suffered. Its intensity can. Shoot from bittersweet to all out despair. Survivor guilt is conventionally associated with large scale catastrophes like the battlefield or a plane crash, but it can actually pop up in more common situations to. For example, one study found that about sixty, five percent of cancer patient caretakers, experience survivor guilt. Anyone who has participated in a cancer support group will recognize the many layers of grief after the group loses one of its members, the survivors ask each other. You know, why did she die while we're still here? She was so kind and giving in behind to kids and grandkids. Why are we the lucky ones? In Two Thousand Twenty, survivor guilt might be even more salient than usual. For example of CO, Grad student from Florida despairing over the fate of his family and country while he studies physics and Germany watching the coronavirus number. Sore at home. He, says, I didn't do anything to deserve being safe. How can I sit here and play with equations all day when my community back home suffering? And what about survivors of economic devastation? A employees who keeps her job while her equally qualified co workers laid off in a large scale. Corporate rightsizing might feel uneasy about her unjustified privilege. Why not me? She asks, do I really deserve to have this job more than my co workers did? Finally and tragically. Survivor, guilt has been a well-known experience among war veterans for whom this experience can be Ashley a significant risk factor for PTSD and even suicidal thoughts and attempts. In a research study interview, one veteran recounts. The only thing I've really had issued dealing with was when I got wounded how I came away. Relatively Scott free. If you will, whereas the guy on my right died and the guy, my left can't lift his arm higher than this anymore. and. There are scores of examples, but in general survivors have some of these themes in their experience either alone or in combination. Theme, Number One is guilt about surviving. This is what we classically think of ask survivor guilt. If you remain safe while other suffered in an accident in a war and the covid nineteen pandemic by being granted asylum, you may feel you don't deserve your safety believe that you should have succumb to. Question, the wisdom and fairness of the world. And theme, number? Two is guilt over what you should have done. You might feel guilty that you didn't do enough. You should've known. You should've tried harder. You should've worn them, maybe try to rescue someone from addiction, for example, but failed, there's an over exaggerated sense of failure or responsibility. If only I had done something differently. Another theme number three is guilt over what you did. You may feel guilty for things. You did instead of feeling guilty about things you should have done. You may feel guilty for things you Ashley, did do for example from running without looking back for your friends while escaping the burning building or escaping poverty by leaving your family to go to college. Or. You may feel intense guilt for things that you did. That were mere coincidence. On the day, the music died in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, country music star Waylon. Jennings. was supposed to be on the plane that killed musicians buddy holly, the big bopper and Ritchie. Valens. When Jennings told Buddy, holly, he given up his seat as a fever to the flu stricken big bopper and was going to take the unheeded tour bus instead holly joked that he hoped Jennings, froze on the bus. Then twenty year old Jennings joke back while I, hope you're all plane crashes. In an interview decades. Later, he said God Almighty for years. I thought I caused it.
Survivors of COVID-19, who received hospital treatment, show increased rate of psychiatric disorders
"More than half of people who received hospital treatment for Covid nineteen were found to be suffering from a psychiatric disorder a month. Later, a study has found. Out, of four hundred, two patients monitored after being treated for the virus, fifty, five percent were found to have at least one psychiatric disorder according to experts from San. Rafael Hospital in Milan found. The results based on clinical interviews and self assessment questionnaires showed post traumatic stress disorder in twenty, eight percent of cases depression in thirty, one and anxiety in forty-two. Additionally forty percent of patients had insomnia and twenty percent had obsessive compulsive symptoms. The findings increased concerns about the psychological effects of the virus. The paper published yesterday in the Journal Brain behavior and immunity says PTSD major depression, and anxiety. All high burden. noncommunicable conditions associated with years of life lived with disability, the study of two, hundred, sixty, five men, and one hundred, and thirty seven women found that women who are less likely to die from Cova than men suffered. Suffered more than men psychologically patients with previous positive psychiatric diagnoses suffered more than those without a history of psychiatric disorder. They said, psychiatric efforts could be caused by the immune response to the virus itself. All by psychological stresses, such as social isolation, psychological impact of a novel severe and potentially fatal illness concerns about infecting others and stigma outpatient showed increase anxiety and sleep disturbances while perhaps surprisingly, the duration of hospitalization inversely correlated with symptoms of St Depression anxiety and OCD.
Why Do Balloons Stick To Our Hair?
"Why do balloons stick to our hair? Brain stuff is Christian Sagar here when you were a kid, did you ever rub a balloon really fast against your hair to make it stick what about as an adult well, after many years of speculation Case Western Reserve University scientists have pinpointed exactly why this party trick happens. We've known forever that when two objects are rubbed against each other, there's a build up of an electrical charge called static electricity or tribe electric charging. If the two objects have opposite charges positive and negative, they'll stick together but some objects appear to charge more or stick more closely together than others like the balloon on your hair now wise that according. To a new study published in the Journal Physical Review Materials. The crux of the phenomenon lies in how strained the balloon material is for the purpose of this study, the scientists stretched a film of Polly tetrafluoroethane the lean let's call it p. t. f. e. for now that's one of the brand names. For Teflon, they took that and they rubbed it against a film of unstrained unstretched PTSD and they found that even though the materials were chemically identical, they generated charge transfer in one direction as if they had two different chemical compositions, the stretched or strange sheet carried the positive charge. Well, the unstrained sheet carried a negative charge. The more strained the material was the more likely. It was to experience systematic charge transfer. This is because the micro structure of the material was altered when strain leading to tiny holes and cracks. These imperfections allowed the rubbing induced friction to facilitate charge transfer leading to static electricity in a press release. Co Author Dan Lacks explained that they think the void regions in the fibers are tiny cell fibers. They think that those were strained when the polymer had different bonding and thus a charge that was different. The researchers also examined the phenomenon using packing peanuts which just love to stick to people's arms. In fact, polystyrene peanuts and plastic bags are currently being closely examined to give us a better understanding of static. Electricity Ideally, scientists will nail it down. So precisely that they will be able to control it, helping to prevent tribe electric explosions such as explosions of coal dust in mines and develop more effective products. For example, pesticides that will stick better to plants or paints that will stick better to cars. It may not seem that dangerous but in fact, static electricity can ignite fuel vapors at the gas pump causing fire to avoid such a catastrophe try not to get back in the car after you start the fueling process because sliding across the seat generates static electricity. If you must re enter your vehicle, be sure to ground yourself I when you get back out by touching the metal part of your car door.
Working through those old emotional triggers so that you can stop the PTSD and start living life again
"Right I'm so glad you here. Thanks for joining me today I. Think I'm going to go over some PTSD. Stuff. Not Mine. But PTSD in general which I like to refer to sometimes as emotional triggers. Because anytime, you are triggered emotionally you know something happened some sort of stimuli out there causes an emotional response in you. It's usually often related to a past trauma of some sort and let me just get this out of the way your trauma is different than someone else's trauma. Someone else may have experienced a terrible event in their past, and yours may not be that terrible in the grand scheme of things but that doesn't make it any less traumatic. What happened to you is personal to you and you compare it to what else has happened to you in your life but you probably shouldn't compare it to what other people have experienced unless you're just going around as an ungrateful person all the time. I mean if you are very pessimistic about life in, you think that you are getting a bad deal all the time and you're just not grateful for anything, it can be very helpful to see other people's trauma up other people's suffering their misery as something. So awful that maybe you shouldn't complain I'm not saying you shouldn't. I'm just saying if you're one of these people that doesn't have too much gratitude in your life can't really see the big picture that you might be better off than other people Then it is helpful. And I'm also not saying that you may not be a victim to a lot of things. And, there's a possibility that you may still be suffering. There may be things going on in your life that are very real and are very traumatic and you're still suffering. All I'm really saying is that when you can't see past your own trauma in your own suffering. And see that there are other people that may have also suffered in can't ever be grateful for what you do have than it is helpful to see other people suffering so that you can look at yourself. I am be grateful for what you have. I mean a good example. We have a good friend young kid he has down syndrome has undergone operation to fuse some of his vertebrae because he has fallen and he broke his back technically. And this would be his. I. Don't know how many surgeries he's had but his bone structure isn't the greatest. He's had accidents before and this poor kid. I mean is not a kid is is an adult now but he's a kid at heart. This poor kid this poor guy has gone through. So many surgeries used to be flexible. He used to be mobile used to be able to do anything that any young boy can do a however over the years. He's had all these operations that have stiffened his back that they got metal in his back now and he's lost a lot of mobility. And I have never ever heard him complain once in fact, he brightens the room. With his smile and he says things so endearing like, Hey, look I can move my arm. I. Mean I hear something like that. It makes me stop and think about how I view the world and how I think that I have problems that are so bad that. I have to stress about them but here's this kid that keeps getting his mobility decrease in his latest operation. We thought might end up paralyzed or worse. They actually thought he might die and so when I think about any stress or problems in my life. I think about this kid who is just happy he can move his arm. That to me just touches my heart am that's why I'm telling you this because if everything does look dismal if you are feeling any sort of stress or anxiety that there are other people out there that you know certainly have gone through a lot and again, not to minimize what you've gone through I'm going to repeat that is that your trauma is no worse or better than somebody else's trauma because you're trauma happened to you and all you have is what you are have gone through in your life and that's all you can compare it to. But when you're so stock in the obsessive thought process of how tough life is it can be helpful to remember that there are other people that have gone through a lot worse and are still going through a lot worse and it's going to even get worse. We don't know if this wonderful person that had this operation today is going to have the longest life I don't know. But right now when he sees someone who's never met at the grocery store and says your beautiful instead of thinking of all the restrictions that have been placed on him, all the operations he's gone through and all the challenges that he was alive. He just comes out and says something like that. Reminding us all war is sometimes better to focus on.
"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
Trump's tanking in the polls
"Anzalone, welcome to campaign HQ David Blah always good to hear your voice. Yeah, you and I met I back in Iowa back in the eighties, not to date ourselves, but the answer. Let me start with this. Let's talk about swing voters for minute. Obviously Joe Biden is doing. Incredibly well in public polls I'd assume he's also doing well in your own polling correct. Yeah I think that it's fair to say that. We're seeing a lot of what the public polls are showing that you know. This is in some ways I. Mean you've seen you've been through a lot of presidential campaigns, and as you said, we've been in this together for over thirty years, so we've seen a lot of historical data and quite frankly what we're seeing right in the public bowls and internal is. Is pretty historic right, so let's start with what we might consider. The Swing Voter Side of the ledger, and then we'll talk about some of the turn out registration targets, so you know you have been part of campaigns world. We Lost White Seniors by twenty points. We a static. You guys right now. white seniors or tied of which means with seniors overall your head. Talk about that like why is that? How much of that do you think it'd be maintained over the next fifteen weeks? I think that there's a couple of things you know. When we take a look at swing, voters There's actually like four really important groups that. You know everyone wants to compare how Biden's doing public Poland's with Hillary but what's really interesting about key group set of moved from sixteen. Is that Biden's not only doing much better and leading in most polling with Voters over sixty five, but he's leading with suburbanites. He's leading with independence, and he's leading with college voters, and so those are like four really important groups that not only did trump win, but is you know Romney won right and so listen? These presidential candidates. Have Different coalition I mean people like to talk about the Obama coalition in. It's important. But Biden's coalition, GonNa look different and clearly part of this started in two thousand, eighteen where we saw suburban women Super White Women College Educated Women but also college educated men really move. I mean take a look at Gretchen Whitmer who is a a a client of ours in places like Oakland County Right She also wanted to Comb County Reagan Democrats which is interesting, which also biting one in the primary, so we're seeing these swing. Voters these groups that Biden is bringing around that is different than the coalitions that we've seen. Seen in the past while at the same time narrowing margins within the Republican base with white voters and also rural voters, and keeping on par with our democratic base, right with young voters in women, and so You know when you, of course you know two thousand eight you. You saw this I. Mean when you are moving, and you have a moment, or if you sustain that moment, you tend to do well almost everywhere, meaning that even in the Republican base voters, rural voters and things like that, you tend to narrow the margins, and they're on margins. In tough places. Is just as important as doing well in some of these other swing areas. Now just specifically unseen Yars I. Listen, you know we see trump's jump rating just getting worse and worse on handling the coronavirus eppendorf pandemic clearly seniors Vulnerable the most at risk, and I think they're reacting directly to that risk in terms of feeling like he didn't get serious enough. He didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan and now with the kind of the surge feel like he's put his head in the sand and I think it's just cost him dearly with that largest age bracket the motor sixty five, and over the last Democratic presidential candidate to win sixty five and over. Is Al Gore so that Kinda gives you an idea. Of! How important this is! Yeah, reminded. Every election is its unique beast so on whether it's seniors suburban voters, you mentioned both college educated women and men Joe Biden right now, doing extremely well. Two questions for you John Do you think he's close to his ceiling there and the job really for your campaign is to maintain those numbers. Do you think there's room to grow? And secondly just how durable do think it is? Do you think that some of these voters are already locked in and is going to be really hard for trump to dislodge them? You get a feeling that where we are today. is very difficult for trump and listen first of all we should say we. We all have a collective PTSD right from two thousand sixteen, and so none of us are getting overseas, but at the same time you know you have to acknowledge the good polls because you know, there's a couple of things that are different from where Joe Biden is from past democratic nominees, including Barack Obama and and twelve. In that, he's also at fifty percent. Right at this point in time whatever what hundred four days and you know there's been no Democrat or Republican candidate you go all the way back to two thousand who's reached that threshold and so you know that's really import. The other part is is that Joe. Biden isn't scary to voters. I mean that's one reason he's leaving with independence. And if you take a look at I don't know the NBC Paul I think is is a good example or one of the most recent ones where I think it's the Fox foxhole. We're Biden is actually above water popularity. Naturally trump is underwater, but trump's very unfavorable is at forty seven percents, and binding I. Think is at thirty one. There's win been one thing that I think when they write about Joe Biden in the primary and the general election is the stability of his vote, right? It really hasn't moved that much. I mean trump's has moved down during the primary I mean. We're biden kind of started at the beginning. He ended at the end. It was very stable. Other people moved all around, but Joe Biden was incredibly stable and I think. Think that we're GONNA see that same dynamic here and we have really in the last several months. The Joe Biden's vote has been incredibly stable it's in a couple of points to the fifty percent mark. trump has moved down right and that is that is a good thing but the stability is important for Joe Biden. One is how voters view him and to how voters view trump. You know there was the I think it was the B. Poll that showed fifty percent of voter said there was no chance at all that they would vote for trump, and so your question is you know, will biden's numbers remain stable, and there just seems to be a universe of voter that is completely cut off from trump and it's because of how people you him prior. Let's think about this. Let's dissect prior to the pandemic. People you know we always heard the same thing. Whether it was you know for for Biden. Her for US Senate race for a congressional race. Is that people disliked? His behavior is tweeting his bowling. He was a jerk They basically just didn't like him as a human being, but hey, you know it's not like some of his agenda and his policies. They like how he took on. The median shook things up in Washington, DC. Now they're problem with him. Is Not only behavior how he reacted in a protest and things like that doubling down. Of Racism but their main problem is. Is that they feel that he failed the leadership test on the three crises, whether it was the health and crisis, whether it was the police brutality protests crisis, and now the economic crisis, which is hurting his economic numbers, and so they're now viewing him His biggest problem isn't just his behavior which they haven't forgotten. It's his lack of leadership or his mishandling of these crisis, so three and a half years in their judging him president. President. They're not judging him as a personality. That is his biggest problem right now, and you know I don't think that you know that's going to change. I think that we have a couple more crises potentially coming very soon, college kids and K. through twelve kids start going to school and mid August and you know it's GonNa be It's going to be really a a really tense time. I think it's GonNa. Be a problem for a lot of communities, a lot of states, a lot of holds and that is the problem. They're going to squarely put. On trump because he didn't take this series at the beginning, you didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan. And that's a problem I mean. We have more crises coming quite frankly. Yeah, now that's that's a great point and your point about his very under favorable I mean if he's sailing into voting time in late September and October with forty seven percent, unfavorable lombardo grounds He's really up against a wall there so John. I, think one of the mistakes. Sometimes you can make whether it's politics. Are Businesses your opponent? Your competition does something puts. Puts out, an ad or new strategy and you know you're like well. That's dumb and of course I've learned like you better. Take a minute and think through why they think it's smart right, but on this suburban thing what what strikes it's almost like trump got a briefing saying you're hemorrhaging the suburbs and he's like Ooh I. Know what I'll say. I'M GONNA say Joe Biden is going to destroy the so like. Do you see any evidence that that tactic which seems to be front and Center for trump, and his campaign now has any chance of succeeding. Listen I think that you know you and I have been through a lot of campaigns, and when you're in a campaign where you're behind, and you're behind eight or ten points, what do you do you just kinda start throwing things at the wall and he tends to throw things at the wall I. Mean You know in one week? He's hitting us on. China I mean all paid TV the next week. He's in his on. You Know Nafta now. Now, he didn't on defunding the police and so they try a lot of different things out right but the fact is is that trump was up on TV in the battleground states for a couple of months prior awesome. You sure what the number is, but I think it's close to fifty million dollars. We never saw the numbers. Move I. Mean you see that in the public calling right? I mean our numbers actually got better. His numbers got worse even though he was on TV by himself and very high levels as well as with his allies, and so you know now. We're on TV. So now we're in a position to you. Know have our own message. Ever Own Voice of voters see what Biden's about What's his agenda and his vision and again we don't see any deterioration a matter of fact, if the last ten days are any indication and again we don't you know. We don't get over our skis on this but the. The. Number of polls have showed this in double digits. is a good place to be. It doesn't mean that we're not gonNA work hard doesn't mean we don't take anything for granted. We know that we just gotTa fight for every vote and we know that it's going to get closer because that's what thing, but that's just. The natural physics of presidential races but I think that again it goes to the opponent meaning Joe Biden. clearly isn't Hillary Clinton. You were talking about very unfavorable in two thousand sixteen. Trump's very unfavorable was forty seven percent, and Hillary's was forty five percents, so there was a lesser of two evils dynamic. Going on, you always see this kind of analysis of what they call double haters, people who dislike both candidate. Well you can't call them double haters this time because they are. They hate trump, but they just kinda just like Joe. Biden are they dislike politics? Right is so his very unfavorable with that group is you know literally I? Think it's a quarter of trump's, and he wins that group by forty plus points depending on the pulled that you see, and that's actually really important again. They don't see Joe Biden scary. They see him as a compassionate relatable. Guy you know they keep the fact that he's lunch Pail Joe and he's a guy. WHO's GONNA look out. For Working Families and he is, you know someone that one. The trump and their allies throw punches. you know they? They're not sticking like their sticking and past presidential campaign. Right, so I WANNA. Talk about filling in the blanks on Joe. Biden, what you guys have started to do, but I want on I. WanNa talk about battlegrounds from and so you made an important point. which is you know when you've got momentum? Momentum in a campaign particularly national campaign. You see you see you see progress everywhere. It's just not in a particular state or region, so I a couple of questions one. Are you seeing with swing voters in particular? Are you seeing the same strength for Joe Biden in the south in the Midwest and the West and I guess secondly I would've thought. Let's say ninety days ago hundred twenty days ago, trump's floors, floor and battlegrounds. Forty six. It looks like it may be lower. So what do you think is I? Mean I agree with you that you know when you see a poll right now. That shows Biden fifty forty. You know the other ten percents gotta go somewhere. And you know probably more of that comes to trump it goes to you guys because you're bumping up against a pretty pretty good and healthy ceiling, but I'm curious kind of what where? Where you see both, is there uniformity in terms of the movement across the country and secondly kind of? Where do you see trump's floor now? Yeah, well, I do think that there's again. We you know you can talk about Joe Biden's feeling, but really when you look at it, historically all the way back to two thousand is just presidential candidates ceilings I mean there's not a lot of presidential candidates who've gotten over fifty percent. Who won right and so the fact that we're in this divided country and there are third party. Candidates who siphoned off universe. Hopefully it won't be as much as two thousand sixteen, and we don't think that it will be but the ceiling is is is almost as close to fifty or a little above for almost everyone right I mean that just kinda historically has how it's happened. Happened in the battleground states like you, you say whether it's Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Arizona I, mean he's having trouble getting to the mid forties right I, mean he in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania in Wisconsin in the real clear politics or the fivethirtyeight average of polls, he stood at forty, one and forty two percent now Florida in Arizona and in North Carolina or Kinda GonNa Act like Florida. And North Carolina in Arizona, they're they're always going to be tighter. Right I mean like Scott Ours no always says Florida tight and that's true now we haven't. You in a lead that's above the margin of error. That hasn't happened very often. That, you and I have done enough Florida. politics polling to know that that is a state that tends to tighten up again. I think that we have. An advantage there because of how we're doing with seniors, and we're competing David I. Mean you know it's like this campaign is going to look a lot like you to you like two thousand eight because of where we're competing? The balanced expansion. In the media markets in Florida, well, where do you WanNa? See I mean I. Remember Two thousand like it was yesterday we were. We were up on TV at high levels. Competing with McCain wear Panama City Talahassee. Jacksonville Gainesville, we were fighting the fight in the panhandle. Right and you know. I mean protect protect I four and all that type of stuff. You GotTa do well Miami Dade Palm Beach etc, but when you see a campaign competing against the Republican in the Republican areas That's what you gotTA. Do to win a place like Florida, and a lot of campaigns often have to make the cost benefit analysis, or make the bad decisions, and this campaign, because it's been under great leadership and the reason, a lot of money gives you the ability to run the race. You need to run to win, right? So I want to just ask you quickly third party because you mentioned it and you live through this horror in two thousand sixteen, where trump could win states like Wisconsin with forty seven point two percent of the vote because the third party vote share was. Higher than historical averages right now in your research and it seems to be true in public research. You're seeing that those numbers may revert more to two percent or less that we've gotten used to write, and that's huge because your ceiling is higher than trump's. I would guess at this point right and so I think that I think that this is how I look at that and you know I mean when you pull when you add third party candidates two point, they always get more on the pole than they actually do on election day right I mean. That's just kind of the dynamic, and so you know you have to. You have to test things a bunch of different ways. But I think there's one thing that we all kind of instinctively know that in two thousand sixteen. There were how a lot of voters Bernie voters etc. WHO stayed at home? WHO VOTED FOR GARY? Johnston voted for Jill Stein and ninety nine percent of them who vote did one of those three things were ninety nine percent. Sure that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, and so they were doing a protests about. those voters now know what's at stake. And they're You know their their enthusiasm. If you will to get vote or get, trump out of office is incredibly high. It's an incredibly intense, and so I think that that dynamic and quite frankly Bernie Sanders and his campaign and the Joe Biden and his campaign have worked together on a plethora of issues. will make the dynamics here much different so we don't see that bleed, and and internally we see we see that you know. Joe Biden just has better with Bernie Voters Than Hillary Clinton did in two thousand sixteen well does tighten up. That's going to be such an important dynamic. So, You mentioned You know the Biden campaign. has a very expansive electoral map again. Something we might not have expected months ago. and you know those are pretty weighty decisions. You're involved in those decisions with General. Molly Dylan and Donald other leadership in the campaign, but John when you think about the places that look now plausible. Not Win them, but you know Georgia in other poll out in Texas today publicly had Biden Upright one Ohio Iowa those are likely not going to be in. My view is two hundred seventy electoral vote, but do you think there's a scenario where you could get surprise? Where maybe you don't win in north, Carolina and Georgia, or is there really a stack ranking on these states? Well as you know, there's always a stack ranking and you were at the you know. Know Genesis in two thousand twelve of analytics right, and so there's a there's a lot of simulations things that you know you and I didn't learn about growing up in this business and there's and there's tipping points, states and things like that. I think that at the end of the day again. The leadership of this campaign is incredibly focused and disciplined, and you can see where we're buying TV. It's public and it's always you know reported on. You know we're very focused on the six battleground states, and you know until you know, they move on to another state. We will be focused on those six states in a very disciplined way, because that is the ball game I think that what's difficult for trump is that he's not only communicating in those six days. He is playing defense right now in Ohio and Iowa, so he is spending a lot of money in Ohio in Iowa. Just protecting himself he's also up in Nevada right, which I don't understand, but you know, right. Right and so she's the one that is actually expanding a lot of money. and I can't say in an undisciplined way. He is in trouble, so he has to expand his hip protected. He has to expand but right now. the Joe Biden campaign is very disciplined and very focused and you know will there be expansion states. You know there's a big map on the wall just like there is you know in two thousand, eight and twelve and sixteen, but you gotta be careful, and you have to be very analytical about doing that.
