Sweet Sleepover Dreams

"Welcome to around four of the parenting roundabout podcast for the week of August seventeenth I'm terry moral and I'm here with Catherine and LECCO. Nicole Aeronautics Hi there as mobs of teens, Zena adults. We've survived those little kid days yet. We're still rethinking the decisions. We've made all through our kids lives and worrying about going on right now today is Thursday which means it's time to give into are obsessing and today we're obsessing about sleepovers. Sleepovers when I was a kid. Did you guys have sleepover parties was that thing? I had them all the time and they were so much fun. And You. Had them never did that. They just they didn't have the friend base I think that would be interested in doing them. They had an occasional friend sleeping over but not very often, and is a little sad because I had so much fun without when I was a kid. But we we heard the other day that there is a blockbuster video store I. Guess the last Blockbuster Video Store who knew there were still down eights they still existed, but there's one that may have now turned into an AIRBNB. So I guess the end of the day they when they close they. They hand you the keys and you can spend the entire night watching videos. They fixed up a little area I guess for viewing and sleeping, and if you are the sort of person who would love to be in a blockbuster overnight watching videos I, guess that would be for you. It would not be for me although they do have snack counters recall and they have like snacks blockbuster. So I would be I would be in it for the popcorn and the twizzlers and the you know Hot Tamale candies and whatever other disgusting foodstuffs they might have. and then I could probably find a nights worth of videos that I wanted to watch were it up to me which probably would not. But that seems like a cool idea and it got us to thinking what are some other places we wish would allow sleepovers I know the Science Museum. Near us as overnight or used to probably in these cova days, it does not but that always seemed to me like it would be a really cool thing to do did not seem that way to my kids nobody I could never interest anybody doing it come on. So What do you guys have? Any have any ideas of places you wish you could have a sleepover or you would have liked to have had a sleepover when you were a kid or you would like to have left your kid at a sleepover. N- catch. Rob's we need to have to like you drop your kid at this sleepover and adults go to this other quote others leave Oh. Cool to like have a sleepover at like. A. Mattress Company. They say you can go there and just mattress showroom. You could go there and you could just all night you could try out all the different beds you could sleep on all different ones you set yourself on alarm every hour to go try different bed. That Allen restful. Yes. They would have every offers over all the mattresses so that you would not be picking up somebody else's headlights but still. That would be that might be fun. Try all the different beds in a real life situation. How about you guys I don't know I mean I've seen it for various museums and I do think that would be pretty cool depending on how recently watched the night at the museum movies. Yes. Creepy. Like overnight in the museum, things would happen that. Three of right you know what would be fun would be like. I think they do have in Disney they have like in the castle yes. That you can stay I mean it's very expensive and I think it's I think it's like Cinderella's rumor. So yeah. Yeah. So that will be cooler any you know just whether there are some place in an amusement park, right? So it'd be Yeah Yeah. Yeah that'd be fun or any place where you could go like after hours right at yes. Just have the place to yourself. It's pretty neat. That would be very fun. I. Mean I remember like for for Grad night when I was in high school, we went to Disney Disneyland overnight and that was an obviously just us. There was a lot of people but it was a smaller group of people that would normally be. At a visiting Disneyland and we just had the run of the place. So I knew didn't actually sleep right? You just know we should do whatever. What you would do this? Right Just as presumably you're not sleeping at the blockbuster, you're watching movies all nights. Will be kind of a waste to just nothing you could sleep very well that blockbuster it looks like you're sleeping on a couch. I have been known to sleep on the couch just fine even with videos or Palang so. Gosh. No. The. Mall I. Don't know why. Doors Open at the mall right. But do they have to then then people have to work and all the stores overnight? I not be happy with you although they would like that because you probably wouldn't be able to buy enough to make it worth their while. But. If you could just have the run a ball stores. That's right. Think that's what I WANNA. Do just have the run of the store really just leave the food court open I would be fine. Is this a recurring cleaner for me? Isn't it? Just, just you know clear out a few teams and put a bed. And then just whenever I wake up, I can go have a cinnabon or a you know that's right. Nice frozen yogurt sets right from starbucks. Totally. Have the change is myself my son would wanna we have an. Like an airplane deemed museum near us, he would WANNA be there for sure. Think, my daughter would wanNA sleep over Google headquarters or something. I bet they have like nap pods and smoke. And all that stuff there who really that'd be so cool. Yeah I don't like the whole zoo thing is popular where he did they sleep in the zoo they sleep outside. Yeah. Like you sleep well I know with the one hit near me, which is in palm desert is sleep outside under the stars I guess it has some kind of area roped off hopefully to the somewhere safe cage then I leave then I believe though zoo in. Sydney. Australia Taronga. Zoo. They have hotel rooms with glass that you can. See. The animal glass? I. Guess Maybe it's like where the animals are put for the night or I'm not sure how that works. For some I believe it's there. You know what I shouldn't even say that I maybe I'm associating with the wrong zoo. There are. Zoos where you can sleep in a room and then on the other side of the room is like the lion cage. I don't know how feel about that. Well. In Animal Kingdom in Disney in Florida they have. A hotel that sort of on the property so that you can look at your window and see oh, animals roaming. Wildlife Retreat at Taronga Zoo. Sorry I'm. Having A. You can own yes. Okay. So there's a real. and. You overlook the the animal compounds where they. Where they stayed where they are. So. We have an open overlooking area. Nice. Yeah anything that's sort of behind the scenes. Yes yeah. Deals like legal. You know yeah privilege. special treat. Yeah Oh Yeah you can actually actually and then they also have these like little. Cabins. which are out in the giraffes roam. Draft seem fairly gentle. It's an ECO lodge African style safari glancing experience. Gladly, they're promoting Taronga Zoo. A legal. If anybody's ever done overnight drive-in. Where they keep showing movies sleeping your vehicle. You know have the kitty movies I, which kids sleep in the back of the van, and then you have more adult there. You could just stay up all night watching movies that way in your own little. encapsulated. Space. Would or something in the morning they can sell pancakes at the concession stand I, always get like betting that that would be fun that sounds like the right sort of sleepover for our quarantine times. That's right. Then, just going to throw one more idea there. Why not? Just like a sleepover in like a fancy penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park or something? Yeah. Probably find that on AIRBNB or something. Good but will you know for like five thousand dollars a night on More reasonable I don't think you could call that like you know gambling out we asleep over I. Guess but that isn't that what they've done with sleepovers for kids. Now you don't go to somebody's house you go to a hotel and then you have the pool and you have the restaurant and yet the room service of all that stuff that was a thing for a while I think yeah, I've my kids have done that a few times where they. Yeah, where it's just like a party at a hotel For for not that much right in. A room and you can have the pool and can order food and all the right stuff. So it is kind of an. Easier way for a parent to host. You don't have to clean before or after just. Your money and Leave in your wake up right I think motels probably have packages for that Never heard of it while since.

And then broke up next week will explore the aftermath of a murder. The investigation innocence ational trial that followed. Travis. Alexander was born on July twenty eighth nineteen seventy seven in riverside, California. When he told people about his childhood, he tended to focus on what he had overcome rather than what he had suffered through his parents were drug addicts his father was rarely around. And his mother was usually too high on methamphetamine take care for Travis and his seven siblings. Instead Travis looked after them he quickly learned to walk on eggshells around his mother if he woke her up while she slept off her most recent drug vendor. She would beat him up. In addition to this abuse. Travis INA siblings were neglected. His mother wasn't able to keep a job and any money that did come in when straight toward drug habit. Travis and his siblings were often without proper clothing, shelter or food. He was always hungry. The house was filthy and infested with cockroaches several morning. Things he woke up to find them. Crawling on him. Just to know before we continue. I am not a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist, but I have done a lot of research for the show. According to an extensive study conducted by Harvard Medical School, children of addicted parents base significantly higher risk of addiction and other behavior problems such as depression in order to combat this these children need to have an outside support system that reassures them that they are not responsible for their parents behavior. Luckily, Travis had this outside support system in his paternal, grandparents Norma, and Jim when Travis was ten he ran away from home to live with them. His grandparents were devout members of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and introduced Travis to their religious beliefs. Finally in a stable environment and surrounded by a supportive community. Travis thrived coming out of his shell for the first time. He joined the high school wrestling team, shedding some of his baby fat and developing a lifelong passion for working out throughout high school. He also saved money to fund a mission trip. I hurt. It's common. Practice in the Mormon faith for young men and women to spend two years on a mission in various places around the world. Depending on the location. They spend that time proselytizing supporting church services or engaging in humanitarian aid and community service when Travis graduated high school in nineteen ninety five he was assigned to Denver Colorado to serve as mission he returned to riverside in nineteen ninety eight with honor and moved into a house with other single LDS men. He was ready to tackle his next big assignment. Finding a wife. Travis felt like he had a lot to offer the woman he dated he was attractive responsible, trustworthy, and despite what he'd faced in his childhood had an endlessly positive outlook on life. He was a developed LDS member who treated his girlfriend's with respect. But none of the women. He dated were ready for marriage yet and his search for the perfect woman continued for a few years then in two thousand Travis met Deanna Reid. She was also a member of the church. They needed briefly. Then Deanna went on her own mission to Costa Rica when she returned in two thousand two they rekindled their romance. It seemed like Deanna was the woman Travis had been searching for in two thousand four the Twenty-seven-year-old move from riverside to Mesa Arizona to be closer to her as a relationship progressed. The couple began having premarital sex in opposition to their Mormon faith. According to the church's official website sexual sins are extremely serious because it is an abuse of the power. He has given us to create life, the church instructed, no one, male or female is to have sexual relations before marriage premarital. Sex has been described by the church as the third most serious sin after murder and adultery. The gravity of defying the churches. Law of chastity, wait on the relationship and Travis Indiana, eventually broke up there are conflicting stories behind their separation after years of looking for his future wife, Wendy, Anna and Travis talked about getting married. He was now the one who wasn't ready, according to the Anna, she didn't see his feelings about marriage changing anytime soon and therefore ended the relationship travis's change of heart could've stemmed from residual trauma from his childhood, according to license marriage and family counselor. Arleen Lancer many children of addicts practice, extreme self reliance protecting themselves from depending on anyone else to fulfil their needs. This is a common. Coping mechanism for children raised by dolts who were unable to take care of them. Travis may have feared marriage to Diana because it made him feel incredibly vulnerable. However, some of his friends suggested an alternative explanation. Marrying Deanna was settling Travis wanted to so more wild oats before committing to one woman for the rest of his life. They recall the Travis wanted to be with someone who could be considered arm candy when Travis met beautiful blonde Jodi area since September of two thousand six he found someone more than suitable to fit that Bill. Jodi areas was born on July, ninth nineteen eighty and Salinas, California, the oldest child of Bill and Sandra areas not much is known about Jodie's childhood. But in an interview with CNN her former babysitter Beth Hawkins described her as an exceptionally aggressive child. She recounted a time that Jodi struck her younger brother in the head with the baseball bat, according to Hawkins, she couldn't leave Jody alone with her brother without some kind of violent incident occurring when she was a teenager. Jody allegedly became abusive toward her mother, Sandra one time even punching her in the face, but Jodi attested that Bill and Sandra where the abusive ones spanking her with a wooden spoon and occasionally a belt. She described her upbringing as strict and oppressive. However, she did find an outlet and photography. She developed the hobby around. Age ten and it continued throughout adulthood, Jody grew up to be a rebellious teenager constantly at war with her parents and even experimenting with marijuana. According to Bill areas, Jodi had mood swings. He said, quote, she'll call and be real sweet and ten minutes later, she'll call back in a rage. You know, just screaming at my wife, and quote based on bills description of these extreme highs and lows it's unsurprising that Jodi was later diagnosed as having borderline personality disorder or BPD elements health behavioral defined BPD best when they said people with BPD are on a roller coaster of unpredictable mood shifts and gulping feelings of insecurity and self destructive behaviors and all too often. They take loved ones along for the ride Jody's mood swings with throw everyone around her for a loop. When she was. Seventeen.

Jodi started a relationship with his roommate Matt McCartney at the time McCartney was undergoing a spiritual development, he studied Buddhism, Hinduism and eastern mysticism. Jody joined him in these curiosities. She said, quote, we sort of explored together taking meditation seminars new age type seminars, which sort of had roots in Hinduism or Buddhism. And we're kind of like a modern version of transcendental ISM and quote, Jodi, search for spiritual identity would continue throughout her adult life. According to the National Institute of mental health people with borderline personality disorder may display uncertain. Certainty about how they see themselves and their role in the world as a result their interests and values can change quickly. Eventually Jody McCartney broke up after she caught him cheating.

Jody changed her appearance to match brewers ex wife a natural brunette. She started bleaching, your hair blond after Darryl's ex wife got breast implants. So did Jody. She even bought the same model car Jody's mimicking behavior can also be explained by the BPD, according to Dr crystalline Saulters at no people with BPD often go to great lengths to try. To avoid abandonment. It is quite possible that Jodi felt if she did not change her appearance to match Darryl's ex wives that he would leave her her insecurity may have also been exacerbated by the fact that her previous boyfriend Matt McCartney had cheated on her apparently Jody's new appearance. Didn't raise any concerns Breuer as the couple purchased a home together in palm desert in two thousand five but shearing home with brewer wasn't enough for Jody.

They quickly hit it off and started a long distance relationship with Travis and Mesa Arizona and Jodi in palm desert, California the weekend after the conference Travis and Jodi made plans to see other again, travis's best friends, Chris and sky Hughes lived in Murrieta, California about seventy miles west of palm desert Travis was already planning to fly in for a long weekend. And Jodi cut drive over the Hughes were also devout Mormons to abide by the law of chastity. Jodi and Travis would sleep in separate bedrooms during their visit. But after dinner Travis whispered to Jody that he would come to see her after sky and Chris fell asleep. According to Jodi late that night, Trump is slipped into her room without saying word and started to passionately kiss her. He pulled down Jody's pajama pants and performed oral sex on her Jodi said the encounter, quote, he knew what he was doing for. Sure. But it felt like too much too soon. I was in comfortable, and quote, but when Travis as Jody to reciprocate, she agreed sky Hughes, refuted Jody's retelling of that night. According to her Travis told sky that they did kiss. But then he left her wanting either way Travis and Jody's romance Lissa liquefied, they met again the following Wednesday at a coffee shop Travis gave her a copy of the book of Mormon and they talked about his faith. He wanted Jodi to consider converting after all they could only get married if she was Mormon. Jodi reported that after the coffee shop they drove separately to a nearby park because Travis was horny Jodi again, performed oral sex on him. But afterward he refused to kiss her telling her it was gross. If she was hurt by this or felt used it didn't stop her from continuing the long distance relationship with Travis a few weeks later, they had another rendezvous in Aaron Burr. Garissa allegedly Travis told her that according to the law of chastity, they could do everything but have agile sex. They spent the weekend in a motel doing everything. But after this trip, they continue to Email, text and talk on the phone every day through the course of their relationship. Jodi and Travis exchanged eighty two thousand emails an addition to growing their connection. Jody was studiously absorbing everything. Travis had a teacher about the LDS faith Travis Jodi that he'd never met anyone more prepared to receive the gospel. On number twenty six two thousand six listen, two months after meeting Travis Jodi was baptized in the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints in palm desert Travis as a church elder perform the ceremony Jody's, abrupt spiritual awakening can be tied back to the BPD. According to the National Institute of mental health suffers BPD often view relationships in extremes. They feel either intense love and closeness or extreme revulsion while still in this intense love phase Jodi was willing to do anything to maintain that feeling if conversion was what it took to marry Travis. That's what she would do. It's important to note that the stark highs and lows of BPD can often be managed with professional therapy. And in some cases, medication according to the national lions on mental illness psychotherapy. Considered the cornerstone for treating BP because it aims to address the emotional dysregulation associated with the condition with therapy sufferers of BPD are given the tools to identify mood swings and seek solutions. However, Jodi did not receive any formal treatment for her illness, according to Jodi after the baptism ceremony. She and Travis went back to her house in palm desert. They went upstairs to her bedroom. Travis spun her around bender over unzipped his pants and began having anal sex with her Jodi said that the sex was painful and she wanted to stop Travis finished by Jack eating on her back sky Hughes. Contradicted the story to she said that Travis came to the Hughes house in Marietta following the baptism ceremony. Not jody's. After the baptism. Jodi and Travis Moore enable to meet again for several weeks. Travis was swamped at work and preparing to host several relatives at his house and Mesa. It was going to be his first Christmas there by December two thousand six Darryl. Brewer had made the move back to northern California. So Jodie probably felt lonely being by herself in the palm desert house around the holidays while she knew Travis would be completely surrounded by his other loved ones as it turned out p p l was hosting a corporate event in Arizona for Christmas. Not far from where Travis lived in Mesa Jodi decided to attend. She let Travis no her plan and asked if she could stay with him. But his house was already full. There was literally no room. No couch. No futons for her Jodi decided to make the trip anyway, but she declined to book a hotel room. Travis's temples throbbed he'd only been able to sleep for a few hours, and he'd woken up with a headache. What had happened last night? He'd been stone sober his entire life. But this was the closest to a hangover he'd ever felt he got out of bed to get a glass of water from the kitchen. He turned the previous night over and over again. But he still couldn't parse out. Exactly what he was feeling. He tried to consider how much Jodi cared for him. She'd had good intentions in surprising him, but to barge into his home uninvited, interrupting his time with his family. It made him feel while he wasn't sure exactly how to describe it. But he knew it didn't feel good Travis frowned she'd introduced herself to everyone as his girlfriend that was a real cherry on top he hoped. No one took it too seriously after all they'd only been on a handful of dates. When Travis gone to the bottom of the stairs. He saw something piled under the Christmas. Tree next to the presence. He took a few steps closer. It was Jody. She had spent the night curled up under the tree using her coat as a blanket and suddenly Travis recognized what he was feeling. He was embarrassed. After this uninvited. Visit Jodi felt like her relationship with Travis had changed. She went to Chris sky Hughes travis's, close friends in January of two thousand seven she asked them for help and confided in them about her relationship with Travis Jodi poured, her heart out to sky, and Chris crying other kitchen table, telling them how much she loved Travis, but how she also felt under appreciated by him. She said he only called her lead at night when he was exhausted. And couldn't carry on a meaningful conversation. He had encouraged her to eat other men within jokingly called her a skink when she took his advice sky, moved by Jody's clear affection for Travis intervened on Jody's behalf. She emailed Travis urging him to recognize the potential in his relationship with Jodie into changes behavior toward her. She wrote quote Travis with love. You are a heart predator. You take great joy and making women fall for the t dog you laugh about what you can get away with it would scare me to death. If my little sister liked, you and fact, I wouldn't allow it. In quote, Travis was furious with skies meddling. He fired off a reply Email with the subject you've crossed the line. He accused guy of causing irreparable damage to his relationship with Jodie planting the idea in Jody's head that he was some kind of Manhor sky replied, quote, no that I would love to see you Mary Jody. She loves you so much that she is afraid that bringing up anything that is bothering her or letting you know, she doesn't think you are perfect would ruin all chances to be with you and quote, the emails continued escalating on both sides. Chris Hughes said it was the only real fight that Travis and sky ever had. They did eventually reconcile and everyone agreed. How much they love Jodi. But later on Chris accuse Jody of orchestrating the entire drama, exaggerating travis's actions towards her and praying on skies concern once again, Jody's BPD could be linked to this behavior. According to the mayo clinic people with BPD can have an intense fear of abandonment, even going to extreme measures to avoid real or imagined separation or rejection after Travis was quick to correct to his family that Jodi was not his girlfriend. She probably had a growing fear that he might end the relationship by going to the Hughes and claiming that Travis was indifferent to her he was forced to defend himself by declaring how strong his feelings actually were. They were officially a couple the following month on February second two thousand seven. In April Travis and Jodi spent another weekend at the Hughes house in Marietta, having had a few months to reflect on the manipulation of the Email fight sky watch Jodi illiberal closer that weekend. She noticed things about her behavior that she'd missed before if Travis was in another room Jodi constantly asked where he was or would try to find him. And if she did find him she would stay out of sight and eavesdrop when Travis returned to the room, she would be overly affectionate kissing him. Like he just returned from a month at sea that night sky confided her concerns and Travis, but he wasn't receptive. Jody was one of the nicest women he'd ever known sky was describing a creep. But sky insisted that something was off with Jodie. Then they heard a noise in the hallway when Travis went to the door. He. Found Jodi standing in the hall, she'd been listening to their conversation. She asked guy if she was going to tell Travis not date, her anymore sky replied that she'd already told him Chris Hughes described Jody's expression when she heard that as evil. Unlike anything I've ever seen. She glared at them for a few moments then retreated to her bedroom. Kristen sky told Travis that Jodi wasn't welcome in their home anymore after that night. That's spring Travis and Jodi travelled together to a PPL conference in Oklahoma City. Jody notice that Travis treated her differently and front of his work friends. He was distant sometimes ignoring her any wouldn't hold her hand this treatment, most likely fed her all ready festering fears of abandonment. She was jealous of any woman. Travis interacted with according to picture perfect. The Jodi Arias story the night of the executive ball. The couple ran into one of travis's female friends Clancy Talbot, she had had too much to drink and was stumbling a bit. She fell into Travis to catch her. He caught her by the waist while he supported her weight Clancy later, head on travis's shoulder. Then he helped her steady yourself, and she continued on her way to Jodi, it was a betrayal. She said quote. I couldn't believe he was doing. Doing that. Especially in front of our friends. I felt like I wanted to cry. But I didn't want anyone else to see that and quote, instead she retired to the bathroom and wept for an hour. The next day Jodi confronted Clancy. She followed her into the women's restroom in cornered. Her shaking with anger. She told Clancy over and over again that she and Travis were together. Now as an official couple Jody held her in the bathroom for several minutes until one of Clancy's friends came to find her and she could escape when she recounted the incident Clancy said, quote, it was just so strange so weird. So creepy end quote. An addition to attending p L events Travis and Jodi took several other trips together that spring he purchased a book called one thousand places to see before you die and they checked off several destinations including Niagara Falls, the rock and Roll Hall of fame and several Elliot's holy sites, and Illinois and Missouri. Unlike on their PPO trips Travis and Jodi shared a hotel room, and he was openly affectionate with her in public. Jody was falling deeper in love with him. According to picture perfect one of travis's neighbors had a casual chat with Jodi at a p p l conference during this time, she told him about her relationship with Travis and that they were absolutely headed for marriage. The neighbor was surprised she confided this and not because it was such a personal thing to tell a stranger. The neighbor knew Travis did not feel the same way about Jodi. The neighbor later told Travis about this encounter Travis admitted to the neighbor that he knew he needed a break up with her. He said, quote, it is unfair to continue the relationship with Jodie when I don't feel the same. Coming up Jodi reacts to travis's waning affection by moving ten minutes down the street from him. Now back to the story. By the summer of two thousand seven Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander's intense courtship had started to fizzle their affection towards each other was unbalanced and Travis knew that he didn't see a future with Jodie. He had been aware for some time that he needed to break up with her. But ironically, it was Jodi who called off the relationship in Lee Jun, this could have been related to another trademark of BPD called abandonment sensitivity in which minor actions or words are interpreted as signs of a relationship ending if travis's lukewarm feelings were apparent to his neighbor they were undoubtedly also noticed by Jodi potentially as a defense mechanism. She decided to break up with Travis before he had the chance to break up with her. Therefore, she had decided to leave him and was still in control and June of. Two thousand seven Jody snoop through travis's text messages while he took an hap-. She found several texts to other women which she considered evidence of him cheating on her. She didn't confront him about it immediately. They were about to go on a two week trip together, and she didn't want to spoil it when she returned upon desert at the end of June. She called Travis to talk. When Travis saw Jody's number. He almost did an answer. They just spent the last two weeks together and here she was calling already. But he knew if he didn't pick up now she just keep trying him until he did answer. She'd acted weird the entire trip. Well, weird for Jody. Normally she was all over him. And instead she had kept her distance. She had been reserved Travis answered the phone not sure what to expect. He was annoyed when she told him that she'd looked through his phone, then increasingly panicked as she described the messages she'd seen when she said she thought they should break up. He was bewildered. She said she didn't think either one of them was ready for a relationship. He scrambled to think of an apology how to frantically repair the situation, but then he stopped himself. Honestly. He was relieved. He was ready to stop carrying this weight. He said, quote, I think you're right. Jody wore not good for each other. We should end this end quote. They broke up on June twenty ninth two thousand seven but decided that they should remain friends. They continue to have their basically daily late night phone calls, but Travis repeatedly made it clear that they were nothing more than friends now Jody offered several times that they could still be friends and also have benefits and many of these late night calls the two had phone sex. If Jodi expected Travis to pine for her after they broke up she was sorely mistaken. By July, fourth Travis started a new relationship with another LDS woman nineteen year old Lisa Andrus. She was another tan pretty blonde and a student at Arizona State University. He had met Lisa in the fall of two thousand six at a church monitored campout, they became friends over the course of the weekend and started texting regularly and two thousand seven after. He broke up with Jodi Travis and Lisa's started spending more and more time together soon they were officially a couple. Jody was quick to react to this new development two weeks after the break-up she relocated from palm desert to Mesa, according to picture-perfect. Jody claim that Travis was excited. She was moving to Mesa. She said that he loaned her money to help with the moving expenses, and even let her store some boxes and his garage Travis told her, quote, we can hang out more and figure things out and quote, however, travis's friends insisted that he was explicitly unhappy with her move he made it known to everyone around him that he didn't want her in Mesa, and they weren't together. A few friends express their concerns over Jody's behavior. Then Jodi rented a room in Mesa that was only four miles away from travis's house. She later admitted that their close proxy. Timoti did freak him out. However when Jodi was struggling financially Travis offered to pay her two hundred dollars a month to clean his house twice a week, some of his friends claimed that Jodi actually offered to clean travis's house for free. So she could spend more time around him. During this time Travis and Jodi rekindled their sexual relationship. Travis Jodi up on her offer to be friends with benefits. Apparently, Lisa Andrews was a strict adherence to the law of chastity while he developed an emotional relationship. With Lisa Travis continued a physical one with Jodi Jodi reported that Travis would text her late at night when he wanted her to come over and have sex. He left the front door unlocked for her and she would sneak inside once his roommates were asleep at this point. They were no longer following the everything but philosophy. They were having full blown intercourse that grew wilder and kinky hair with each session soon. They were meeting three times a week always under the cover of darkness, but the more Travis and Jodi slept together. The more Travis pulled away he confided to a friend that he hated him. So. Self after each sexual encounter feeling like he'd failed himself and his faith, but he couldn't resist Jody especially when she threw herself at him. If Travis resisted the urge to texter for long enough. Jodi, would send him explicit messages and pictures to draw back to her and the cycle began again as Travis and Jodi continued these hot and cold spells Jody's jealous behavior escalated, he was still dating Lisa Andrews, and that infuriated Jody Jane Velez Mitchell, author of exposed the secret life of Jodi areas described Jody's behavior during this time as unhinged. She would show up at travis's house unannounced, inviting herself to join whatever he was doing. If the front door was locked she allegedly squeezed inside through the donkey door Travis accused her of stealing pages out of his journal that detail the time period. They were dating one time a friend dropped by travis's house to check on his dog when they walked in the front door. They smelled freshly baked cookies Jody was in the kitchen. She offered them cookie from platter. The consummate hostess Travis had no idea. She was there. Travis recalled that one night. Lisa came over to his house to watch a movie, and they fell asleep on the couch. He was awakened by his dog barking downstairs when he went to investigate he found Jodi standing in the kitchen, he asked her what she was doing. And she admitted that when she saw them through the window. She decided to break into the house Travis quickly sent her away the next day. Lisa got an Email from an anonymous account lambasting her for being shameful in the eyes of God. The Email threatened, quote, if you let him stay in your bed. One more time or even sleep. Under the same Rufus him. You will be giving the appearance of evil. You cannot be ashamed. Enough of yourself, and quote, a few months later travis's tires were slashed when Travis told Jodi what happened she rushed over to take Travis to the mechanic. So they could be replaced afterward. They drove home Jody following behind. Travis when Travis took the exit for Lisa's house instead of his own Jody controversies to tell him he was going the wrong way. He hung up on her that night his tires were slashed again. The ever-present drama that came from Jodi interfered in Travis and Lisa's relationship. Jody was always around his house and would constantly call in text Travis if he was out somewhere with Lisa then one of travis's roommates told Lisa that Travis was secretly still sleeping with Jodie. It was the last straw. They broke up in February two thousand eight but it still didn't bring Travis back to Jodi. Instead he started going on dates with Marie Mimi hall in March around this time, Jodi move back to California. She went to live with her grandparents in why Rica she said she could no longer afford to live in Mesa. However with Travis choosing another girl over her for a second time. She might have decided that it was time to let go over hopes of a future with him. She wrote in her journal, quote, it stays with me. I can't get it out of my mind, and my heart. But it still remains that I cannot marry him in quote while Jody's journals in the spring of two thousand eight spoke of nothing but Travis he wrote about her only twice the first entry expressed his relief that Jodi had moved back to California in the second. He remarked on the fact that an entire day had passed without any communication from Jodi he wrote quote. Wow. I thought that would never happen. I loved it. No negatively, no distractions. I'm sure it was good for her to and quote yet. Even after celebrating the space from Jodi Travis eventually resumed communication with her. It was mostly of a sexual nature dirty texts and requests for naughty pictures on may second two thousand eight Travis texted to her quote. There's not a day where I haven't dreamt. About driving my shaft long and hard into you. You are the ultimate sled in bed. You'll rejoice in being a whore who sole purpose in life is to please me any way I desire and quote at the same time Travis continue to pursue me hall. He was at thirty year old Mormon bachelor. It was almost unheard of similar to Lisa Andrews Travis saw a chased respectable woman who could potentially be his wife. He invited me to join him on a p p l trip to Cancun that summer, she accepted, his invitation and he arranged for plane ticket in her name. A little over a week later on me tenth Jodi and Travis shared a late night phone call. They talked for a little under an hour having steamy phone sex Jody recorded the conversation without telling Travis. While Jody continued to satisfy travis's sexual desires from afar, his relationship with Mimi hall. Stalled out on me sixteenth. She let him know that she just liked to be friends if he wanted to take someone else to Cancun. She'd understand but Travis follow through on his offer. And the plane ticket was already in her name. They continue to plan to travel to Mexico together in June. It's unclear how Jodi discovered that Travis was taking Mimi to Cancun. But she was enraged by it on may twenty six. They had a blow out fight via G chat in the transcript Travis told her, quote, you're the worst thing that ever happened to me in quote, it's unclear from the message exactly what they were fighting about they referred to an event, but don't give any details. Travis leader told a friend that he had caught Jody hacking into his Facebook account. But this wasn't. The first time Jodi had snooped in his account. So Travis is extreme reaction might have been motivated by something else. It's been suggested that Jodi told Travis about the phone sex recording sky Hughes speculated that Jodi tried to blackmail Travis with the tape trying to force him to take her to Cancun instead of Mimi because of travis's position in the church and the clear violation of the law of chastity the tape represented if Jodi more to leak the tape deter ch- authorities Travis would face punitive action if taken to its extreme it with threaten his church membership. They ended the conversation on bad terms. Travis type two Jody stay out of my life. Forever. On June first two thousand eight and Jodi made plans to visit friends in Pasadena, California and then west Jordan Utah. She rented a car for the journey and reached out to her ex boyfriend Darryl brewer to borrow two five gallon gas cans for the trip she told him she wanted to save time and not have to worry about stopping for gas. She drove from y Rica to Pasadena on June second, she stopped at a WalMart in Salinas along the way and purchase a third gas. Can it's also likely that she acquired Brown hair dye there though, it was not listed on the WalMart receipt. She stayed in Pasadena with her friend that night and Dieter hair to change her appearance in case she was spotted in Mesa on the afternoon of June third Jody filled up all three gas cans. She also called her friend in Utah to confirm that she would be arriving the next day to establish her. Alibi? Jody neglected to inform her friend that she was planning to make an additional stop after they hung up. She took the battery out of her cell phone and police it in the glovebox car to avoid any digital trace of her detour she drove through the night without stopping using the gas in the cans as necessary she was going to visit another friend in Mesa Arizona too. But she would be in Utah the following day after they hung up. She took the battery out of her cell phone and place it in the glove box of her car. She drove through the night without stopping easing the gas cans as necessary at four AM on June fourth two thousand eight Jody backed her car into travis's driveway. She removed the front license plate from her car with a screwdriver. She retrieved her overnight bag from the truck the front door was unlocked as. She had so many nights before Jody quietly snuck inside and headed up stairs to travis's bedroom. She had such a big surprise for him. Thanks again for tuning into crimes of passion.

Think you'll agree with me and marks a very special fashion history now because not only are we happy to help promote vogues new podcast, invoke the nineteen nineties, which launches today September seventeenth today. But we are also joined by the podcast esteemed host who perhaps needs no introduction. But we are being joined by Hamish Bulls who just happened to have a front row seat at some of the most seminal fashion history moments of the nineteen. Ninety S that this new podcast takes as its subject fashion historian Couture Collector Museum, Curators Vogue editor, and large Hamer's can now add podcast host. To his already impressive resume and it goes without saying that is such an honor to have him with us here today. Hamish such a warm welcome for joining us on dressed. Thank you for having me. You know it's perhaps easy to reduce one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s fashion to tropes I mean you have supermodels you have grunge anti fashion turn fashion, my personal favorite, clueless the film but there are so many other forces and influence at work so much so that yourself and vogue have dedicated an entire podcast to exploring them. Can you please tell us more about this new venture? You know this? PODCAST has been so kind of. Amazing to me because this idea of really focusing on a decade I mean I remember Berry Berry clearly about ten years ago going to a real hipster. curated vintage store on the Larry. Side. and. Looking at something and The store manager said. Yes you know that's that's ninety s in this kind of reverend. Tone. You know that was twenty ten I was thinking my daughter aunties origin like. A decade. Would identify with the nine hundred even mean. So you know it's been very, very interesting. For, several seasons now you know when so many designers, pan generational designers designers to live through the nineties who've been there and done that and very young designers who were born in the ninety S. Not even voted in this. Have Ninety inspirations on their on their boards they'll you know they'll say you know. I'm thinking nineties and and so it's really made me think what was that decade for me and what can you take away from it a wireless at this kind of moment of such a tremendous change on. So many levels I mean, you know technology music the way we communicate with one another the way fashion was communicated quite apart from the seismic changes that were happening in clothing itself you know I. Have Particular and enduring funds for the eighties for so many reasons because you know that was the the decade I really kind of came out and blossomed into the world of fashion at a level where I could kind of have a voice that could reflect it and identify won't be pretentious to say impact it but you know sunny out a mirror up to it and write about it and celebrated. You know I really loved seventieth the designers who emerged in that decade or kind of came into their own in that decade from McLaren Montana, an advocating and array coup Boeing Yoji referred ause Bek Rome Eugenie. Christian acquire, of course, and so I have I in my collection I have a huge amount of clothing from that era, some of it belonging to some of those shiny set women who I so. Revered at the time like you know Gifford Stein bag or Susan good friend. Ivana trump. So those clothes have kind of double resonance that they. I can't pieces than they were worn by these women who really represented that era and so for me I was so imma St- and that kind of lack qua- world of decoration and embellishment and everyone with earings, hats and gloves, and maybe a mouth and incredible a Bobbin heel shoes and so on and when fashion did a total pivot and I was going to Marjiana's shoreham and seeing these kind of ghostly figures in their white coats on these kind of inexplicable closes at. What is going on and? Sitting. Through Marc. GRUNGE inspired show for Perry Ellis which was just the very beginning of my life in new. York south my coming to bogue in ninety. Two kind of really coincided with the birth of what we would think of as the nineties in terms of a decade sunny forming an identity. That's all about Courtney. Love a Neka beaten up vintage nineteen thirties luxury dress and crooked Tiara and Mascara. And the Mandate Academy that kind of Conic Image Nirvana and the idea of a kind of berry heterosexual lead singer wearing dress, and totally pulling it off and the emergence of Helmet Lang and this kind of revolutionary way of actually showing close. You know because you're coming out of the eighties when the fabulous runway girls like Ma. Passer and Yasmeen Gary. twirling in twisting and Dowell Marinara buttoning the coats. So you could see the blouse, the dress underneath that twirling so that everyone in the audience can see the up at three hundred and sixty degrees to how land presentation where these girls and boys are coming out like bullets from kind of all directions and they're in these kind of extraordinary close with. Jeans and? Sneakers. Like a little t shirt and it's nothing but it's everything you know. And I I mean. It's it was sort of electrify and you you know it was another fashion show another point of view I wasn't really. Thinking while we're in the nineties every change. But of course, looking back everything had changed and you know the exciting thing. With this podcast has been being up to kind of explore these sort of moments and our amazing producers and research as will say, do you know anything about this Jonathan she show that featured all the supermodels and they came out to George Michael's freedom ninety soundtrack and having just been in the video for the single and I said well Ya. Because guess what I was there and yes, I was of course I was there at about Jacobs crunch collection and I remember precisely how it made me feel. So course I feel absolutely neanderthal because you have these faces at. Zoom call just completely speech. You're you're you're your bath the grown show on daguerreotype somewhat abridged whatever else belongs to ancient history and I was I was in high school and college in the nineties so It's near and dear to my heart to and I still look at that stuff today and I'm like what is still holds up? That's the reason why everyone is so obsessed with it. Now I think that's you know so so interesting because yacht I mean you kind of look at Mark's grunge collection and you look at kind of a little biased cut that is inspired draft with maybe a sprig print of Lemons or cherries or whatever it was and boom with a little shrunken cardigans, and maybe a kind of bar roads, boys accessory, and the kind of hasn't really been a time between that and now where you couldn't kind of wear that and. Don't be a convincing. Look you know through everything that we've kind of gone through and I think it was. You know suddenly the first decade people really started rummaging in the idea of vintage inspiration and that's something that has endured for thirty years as a process for designers. I mean I'm not saying that that that didn't exist in the eighties and seventies to and and we looking at Barbara Hyun Nick Bieber was looking at the glamour of Hollywood movies of course, it's an existing. Those potent things that kind of trigger you are enduring things but I think the kind of process was really sort of established of. Up, into references was established. And the idea of the purity and kind of pad down simplicity of. Lying and how? You know astound. Customer or Stella tennant. In those shows and they just look so amazing I, mean, they just look so amazing that kind of scrubbed way makeup. And then you look at the way Calvin Klein for instance, sort of Co that idea. But made it. Something that was uniquely kind of American and very powerful to. and. Then you look at the the whole concept of brand building and you look at someone you know an incredible. Unique protein force like Karl Lagerfeld you-know-who. Dedicating a an episode to and the idea of unit called who went to Chanel at the beginning of the eighties when it really was a moribund. Brand you know was making dowdy bourgeois clothes. and. He understood how to take brand pillows and marry them to everything that was timely and hip and happening whether was Memphis or no south up of thirties or hip hop or whatever it was and I think that you know he kind of led the way for brands to think about other brands to think about shaking up storied houses and you know suddenly you had Galliano at Dior and. You had the voluntary of a Alexander McQueen at givenchy and Tom Ford Gucci, and then you had the idea of a brand like Gucci buying other brands that the creative director belt believed in. So I. Think the ninety s so much happened. So many barriers were broken, and as I say the way we were able to consume fashion changed totally because you suddenly had fashion on TV and you had. On MTV and you, you were just exposed to the designers who are making fashion you're exposed to the. Actresses and the music stars who are consuming it and shaping it an in many ways also informing it from you know from grunge to hip hop whatever it was. So I think so not happen and I mean the. The deep I get into the PODCAST, the more I realized. What A, what an era of what a period of seismic change it was an how had just has stayed with us I spoke to one designer and I asked the guy I've been asking. Most of the people I've been interacting with you know when the ninety s and for you and this. Is. The ninetieth never ended. They inform everything. That's a decade everything I do. Hey everybody today's episode is sponsored by the new Mazda C X thirty. So lately, we've been trying to do our part to be cautious and do what we can for public health. So we've been cooped up in the house a lot not a getting out a lot. Robert, is there anything you Kinda miss about the road trip or going on long drives? Well, I have to say there's there is something really cool about having a long drive hopefully, you know like driving through the mountains or something and you get to really dive into a particular album just really experience it beginning to end while taking in the scenery also great time for the children to learn about metal machine music. So when miles gray and I drove the Mazda C X thirty from Palm Desert to San Diego, I really enjoyed the scenery along the way and I feel like the car itself helped a lot with that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call an essential approach. So well, it's got a lot of features in car Wi fi you know vehicle status, navigation displays, etc. It really doesn't feel crammed with distracting lights and. Visual Decoy and speaking of features. Six thirty also has a really good factory soundsystem. They loaded the car up with some high definition sample tracks for us to try like we listen to Daft punk and that sounded great.

We just didn't interview with a Mona May who's the costume designer of clueless which celebrated its twenty fifth year today, which is insane absolutely means she's like having a renewed I mean she's still in a very much an active costume designer but this like publishes become this public entity. Now because of how much people still to this day twenty five years later connect to that. Film and that period Yes yes. So so much coming out of the nineties that I think. So many of US still experienced today participate in and dress, and like you said, so many designers are still bringing it to the runway these last couple of years. Yes. It's also you know it's also a decade saw the rail emergence of the red carpet and the idea of. Actresses of Substan- talent very gladly embracing the world of fashion I. Mean you think of people like Powell, Paltrow Cate Blanchett, Coal Kidman, and before that, there was kind of a there was a negativity attached to the embrace of fashion. It was there was this perception that you could. You wouldn't be taken seriously as an as an actor few embraced fashioned and and that just totally transformed and you know. Suddenly. You had turned rivers a pioneering and you know people then began you know then everyone becomes so paranoid about being considered polio thoughtlessly dressed or whatever. So I think the nineties was absolutely the beginning of the red copied in that way and the the. You know the power of. Imprudence has really and how you know potent in seductive and you had some unlike their a Wang, for instance, whose whole. Strategy to establish brand was to dress actors like Sharon stone and not to do advertising. So that kind of speaks to kind of global reach of the red carpet and and that really kinda began then. So it's it's a multilayered decade where so much is happening that you now on completely takes grounded. But when I was fashion students in the early eighties, the was no fashion information if you hadn't managed to get into the show, the Wa couple of black and white images if you're lucky in a newspaper the day after and then vogue three or four months later. And the only way you could really get serious substantial fashion information was through a magazine Code I think Ecology Tony? An. Italian magazine was kind of as thick as an old fashioned telephone director I know that's not. Very to a key twenty reference but a massive coffee table book that had page by page of dedicated to an individual designer and these little kind of thumbnail runway pictures as though you print it out bogue runway and that was the only way. You could see some of these kind of less prominent or emerging designers that wouldn't be covered in the magazines newspapers, and it was the only way fashion information and you know that's coming out four months after the runway shows and one. Job Bad copy in the mountains library that everyone is kind of you know lining curing up to look at. and so the idea of accessibility of fashion and dedicated shows and suddenly you've got Elsa Klenge and Tim lancs during that. TV shows and going backstage in interviewing. The supermodels and they become a big thing and fashioned suddenly taken seriously and it's kind of available I think the moment that the global public start to see how kind of exciting glamorous him thrilling this is everyone wants in and fashioned suddenly becomes a very different phenomenon that it was even in the eighties. And one could argue largely in part and thanks to the Internet of course. Yeah. It's. It's very early days of the Internet and I got my first cell phone of the nine eleven. So you know. There was no way to reach me in the nineteen. Run Out of trying to get hold of me and I was in the subterranean debts of drew the Paris auction house turning up potential dreads inside out. She was going to have to wait for me to get back to the office. But yes, there were. Town of means of communication people were experimenting with but of course, yes, technology is beginning to. Transform the way we consume information and disseminate it. And communicated out well, we can't wait to listen. Yes and such a seminal decade and dress listeners this podcast dropped two days. So you can check out the very first episode on I'm assuming itunes or wherever else you get your podcast Hamish absolutely wherever you get your podcast and please forgive me as the Queen Mother but. I've got to squirm my way through it but. I hope it's I. Hope it some people find it engaging and intriguing on kind of informational and you're gonNA have surprise gas right and interviews. It's there's a lot to look forward to and expect people that worked I'm assuming in the nineteen nineties already like little hints. You can give our listeners as to what to expect for this upcoming season. You know it's been so thrilling to me actually to be able to talk to people like Marc Jacobs Calvin, Klein who really shaped the decades in so many ways but we're also looking at the great fashion editor to shape the greats. Fashion shoots the great bogue agitators. Where talking to call Lagerfeld's news is and his right hand man time and the photographers who created the seminal photographs and images. So it's Berry Berry layered, and you know we're talking to the models and all their experiences, and of course, just to have I mean for me, you know I kind of lived through it. But of course I lived through through my Lens, I'm what's being so revelatory for me is to talk. To someone I Calvin and talk to someone like mark and to talk to someone like Amanda Hall, and to get the insider perspective and to understand their process and the back stories and how they arrived at these moments that we're identifying as the key signifies of the decade and and the creating the runway moments in the images and videos and the ephemeral moments that we look at the shape that period and make it so. enduringly fascinating and immortal undying absolutely Hamish you've been exceptionally generous with your time. Today. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for joining us We don't WanNA interrupt your. I'm sure jam packed day any further, but thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We can't wait to listen our listeners can't wait to listen. Thank you so much. Hamish. Thank you both so much for having me. Well cast that was beyond treat and I know that I will certainly be tuning in for his trip down memory lane. I have plenty of Nineteen Ninety s fashion memories myself as I was in high school and I was also in college at that same time I mean, let's say fake pleasure snakeskin pants with crop top. And a choker. Some like very kind of sixties inspired miniskirts so short that I can't believe I actually wore them. You know good solid ninety s fashion Oh and platform she is I still love platform shoes there though so I'm not giving those up anytime soon. What about you? Any favorite ninety s fashion moments. Yeah. Now, that you said shoes like I loved my jellies I still love my jollies like if anybody has jellies, I will totally wear them. Yes but then the more eighties and nineties Oh my gosh. I. Had jellies that I loved in the ninety. Maybe it was a by. Own One thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety s specifically Letsie I know for many a young boy like my husband the nineties was the era of the supermodel I mean he still talks about the one thousand, nine, hundred supermodels. The poster I had in my room was Tyson Beckford because he was such a dream boat or still is oh my gosh. Yes.

This is kate spade. Kate Spates S. P. A. T. S.. Yes so she has a juicy story tell but I I was just like how is that been for you and I'm like I'm mall. Sometimes when she was alive it was great. I could get into restaurants like kate spade. Yeah you're not lying when you call and say because it sounds like it's like kate spade but it's actually kate spates anyway so the way I got in contact with you is my sister. Shannon mcdonagh Goldstein. Who you guys know from being my sister in being on the show is friends with you and facebook friends? I kind of in your community of like Blond Palm Desert women not only on friends but anyway and you posted a really interesting post that you recently did a twenty three and me. Yeah and had some shock doc. When you found out the father that you believed was your father who had recently passed was in fact not your biological dad? Yeah and let's just kind of go from there like like your life and how did it come about and I felt like where. Where were you raised? We'll pretty much palm springs area. I mean my mom and I moved down from Pleasanton California in nineteen eighty. So I feel like I've been in the desert for my my whole life this part from pleasanton than in northern Cal East Bay But the only reason why I did twenty three and me as my boyfriend and I were on vacation. And I'm like put sunscreen on. He's like I don't need sunscreen. I'm like what are you made of. Why do you like Brown? Like a TATER TOT and I like burn so badly and I said I'm Italian. He's Italian. I'm like no. I'm like half Italian. My Dad that is like my my dad's mom is like fresh off the boat. He's GonNa Talian. And I said one Norwegian and Italian and say let's do that twenty three and me so I'm like all right. So we do it and we get it back and I'm scrolling scrolling and I'm like zero point zero percent Italian houses possible so I call my brother and I have a brother who's older. How many years older almost eight years older okay? He likes to say stuff and you grew up together. Yes okay and it's just the two of you. Yes okay and tell recently and so I called and I said Hey. Dad lied that we're not Italian. I'm Italian and I said how houses possible I said. Well you know he was telling I'm Italian like He. He's just like it's in my blood. I'm Italian I'm like well I feel like I'm entirely too. And so he did the twenty three and me your brother did. Yeah uh-huh and it came back fourteen percent Italian and then when we matched on twenty three and me it shows are predicted. Relationship was half sibling and I was like like what does that. What does that mean like? Is Dad not my dad and he said I. This can't be it's got to be a mistake incisive. Well I'M GONNA DO ANCESTRY TO. I'm like okay if it's like totally false. So do ancestry in you know for about three weeks four weeks I was just like kind of on pins and needles like could this possibly be how. How does what would that story be like and comes back into the same thing and I'm like okay so I'm Irish French? and Ah Norwegian what the heck and I in ancestry. It's Kinda cool. You can see your tree. You can other people's trees that you're related related to so there's this woman who I'm suddenly related to and She's done a lot of work on her tree. And so I'm looking. I'm like this is all so confusing museum and my one of my girlfriends Laurie. She has gotten really good at genealogy and she's just like fascinated by this whole thing she was she was like let's make me an editor on on your ancestry and I'll find him and I was like no. I don't know so almost almost a year I just sat on it. I was like you know what I'm I it's like I need a daddy. Go back to your parents so your your mom. Yes was married to this Italian Dad. They had your brother air and then eight years later they had you and when did those parents pass so they divorced. They divorced when I was seven. Okay Okay and then Point your older brother was then like out of high school. Yeah he stayed in Pleasanton. He only came down for like six months. He couldn't stand the desert. Yeah it wasn't you know back then it was not lively for somebody who's twenty one. Yeah but on. Yeah so we my mom and I moved down to the desert her in one thousand nine hundred and then she ended up passing away in two thousand and kind of and my dad passed away in two thousand eight relationship with your dad. Wants your parents. Richard divorced that always always strong g gatherings every other weekend or yeah he was said Disneyland. Dad He came through for the big things. You know a car for it when I was sixteen that he paid two hundred dollars broke down all the time. That's that's another story but he did come through and but they fought hot like cats and dogs they never had a great relationship so It it never occurred to me other than sometimes I'm like. Where did I get my willpower from because neither of them? I'm had great willpower and I when I make up my mind on something I'm like it's it's over it's done. It's happening and neither of them. Were like that. That's the only thing I'd say I think I'm adopted adopted joke about that but now so You know fast forward to almost a year passes after I get these crazy results and and Laurie and I go out for cocktails Italian Bahamas and she was like make me an editor. Come and like all you need to. You deserve to know your truth. And I'm like okay so I did. I said. Can you please not contact anybody. 'cause like my fear was I was going to break up some happy family with this. You know obviously somebody somebody might have stepped out on his family like my mom stepped out on her. Yeah so and so I said if you can do this without contacting Ebay so a a week later she she's like I think I found your dad. I'm like Oh my God and so. She sends me a picture from facebook and she goes look like look like him from like your your nose nose down and I was like well I kind of do and she said but don't get too excited. We really need to lake reach out to that. Lady that is your I your highest ranking DNA relative and see if casinos anything. so I write her this email and just brief and it's just like highs so Apparently I'm related to you and apparently apparently my dad is not my dad and But I'm I want to assure you I'm not looking for anything. I'm well established. I you know Both my parents have passed so I just want answers because they can't go to them for answers but my mom's name is Blah Blah Blah and and we lived in Pleasanton. And so any help. You could be. It'd be great type and so I send that like on a Friday and then we go off to this is just through facebook message or email in ancestry and in twenty three and me you can and you can message your DNA relatives. Oh okay so she. So we go to this party and like pioneer town and it's like we're in the RV and we're having a great old time. I've forgotten all about it because that's what I want exactly what I wanted to do. Like not obsessive about it right. Senator receiving the psycho and so I I On our way back we are like an stop at this little diner. And I'm in my car and my boyfriend's in the RV and he has to park like Kinda far away and as we pull up. I look at my phone own. And she's responded and she says George is my first cousin but he's more like a brother to me and he is your Biological father and his authorized me to give you his email address and welcome to the family and I was just like like I completely. And where does this man live. So he's in Pleasanton which made a lot of sense and so I'm like okay. How does this go together? And so I come out of my car and I'm walking towards my boyfriend. He sees him sobbing. And I'm like it's the Guy Lurie found on my God and I like that story because he got a divorce shortly the after I was born so that families already broken so and he's been married you can you can. She's a super sleuth like stocker level. Expert okay. She had pictures of might make sure. She joins the obsessed facebook page. Oh yes absolutely now. We we have a lot but we could always use more people on the ground. She is fantastic phenomenon stalker so she has pictures of my sisters. I have two half sisters. There's and that are younger than you are. They are ones older and then one is only four months older so George got around it on with my mom on wall. His wife was home pregnant. So that wasn't great but it's you know. I think that happens sometimes times so anyway I go into this diner. This is crazy things diner and I'm just like God. I know who it is. My God I got to know the story and I said I need coffee and so she brings me Coffee Mug and I see it says like her on it and I and I I pick it up as I said what does this say in turn it and says father her a gift. From God it's one of those diner's that has a bunch of random like ugly and I'm like what is this. This is so crazy the and yes. So we're both crying. He's like this is awesome. He's alive and you have like a second like a reboot and I'm like but what if he's creepy like I'm so scared of of this opening myself up to this. They only and so of course I went into soccer mode and I completely stopped them all and I'm like they look kind of normal normal like he looks like he was a cop you know and so he he's retired and they travelled around an RV like they're cute together and so so now he After he divorced the wife that had the daughter that was four months older than you then he remarried. Yes and is that wife still with okay and nate. Did they have any more. They have kids and okay so now I'm like I have to reach out to him. I have to have to email him so oh I craft this email but I had all these weird things happening that week that I was like. I know what I am the type that I will cry at the most inopportune times and I'm not letting haven't allowed myself to feel this. I need to get through a couple of things. Did you call your brother and confirm all of this. Oh Yeah along the way I was just like what what was his feelings well He. He was in denial this whole time. He's like this is this. This has got to be false. And I'm like let's see what this guy says what. The story is all know that his mom was unfaithful. Faith all not that part losing me. He felt like he was losing half of me. Does that make sense. He's like. Is this weird that I feel like selfish. I feel like Share and want to share you with this other family like your mind. You've you've been my little sister. I call my life and so now you're else assistant was me and I was your brother. I would be thinking back to when I was in second in eighth grade and was my mom like a little absentee was she hanging out. Do I remember number of cop coming by in the afternoon for lemonade. I would try to start to think like that. So he tells he says what's The guy's name and I said George and I don't mine out in him yet. I publicly outed him on facebook. I was okay. He's actually really proud. That that's ahead okay. But so I saw I suck it up and I write this email email but I don't send it for like a week And so I'm getting ready to go into orange theory and I'm sitting in my car and I'm reading it again and I've sent it to Lori. She said it's great. You know. Make sure you ask ask pointed questions because he could get cold feet. You never know you WanNa know all of your answers that you know and really I just want to know. How did you fit into my mom's life house I think I don't Oh no this lory woman but I've just created a career for her? Oh absolutely a twenty three and me geology coach. She and she's helping people bill burr like she should do this all told her because she helps so many people. It's amazing so so I sent some sitting in in the parking lot and I hit send and I go work out and I text her and I'm like sent and text my boyfriend sent and they're just like they send the crossing fingers thing and so I go workout and I'm trying. I just think about it and be a psycho incentives you know and so I I go work out come out. And he's already responded and so I'm like Oh my God I got inside protects awesome back. He responded would he say they're calling me and I'm like hold on. I haven't read it yet so I go and sit in my crime like drive home in the comfort of my home to like deal with this or do I just sit. I'm sitting my car so I'm sitting in my car and I'm reading it and I'm just like bursting out in tears. He says I've almost memorized it. And say he says I've been waiting for fifty fifty years hoping that you might find me and I'm like he fucking new. Oh my God I'm sorry can occur so I'm like what does this mean. How did we know? And he said Your mother and I met in college. We both went back to school and when we were in our you know to twenty seven and we were in a history class and we realized that we lived right around the corner from each other in Pleasanton so we might as work. Well Carpool and so He said and she was this beautiful beautiful blonde in this red convertible. Buick you know. And she was everything I ever wanted and didn't have and We just became fast friends. Friends and You know for a year and a commuting and one night after school we went out to dinner and we ended up having a couple of drinks and dancing and he said you're too detailed but I'm like hotel or car the car like I'm pretty sure it was the car because I'm pretty sure they came home and read Buick. Oh yeah sure. The I haven't got the guts to ask him. Hey Yeah so that made sense actually. Was it only that one. Did he confirm those. What at at one time or did it go? According to him it was that one time My sisters are things like they're Kinda mad about it and I don't think in his children. Yeah I Who I've just recently met? I know I'm going ahead okay. So so that was his story so email I told my brother and he so he says you know I'm Here's my my phone number. Here's my address. Here's my fax number. And he was kind of cute wit about him and and I'm like I like him and then he says you know I I would love to have or he says I saw your your mother exactly three times after. She told me that she was pregnant. And when she told him She said I'm pregnant and he says well now what and she says. Well this is Ken. Whitaker's daughter or son. And you know Oh you have nothing to do with it. This her real yes. This is this we end here. Our friendship ends and you are not to contact me anymore. And she like cut it down and so he was kind of brokenhearted a little bit but just went back to his especially those days and any honored her wishes is honestly she did the right thing. 'cause my dad would have gone ballistic. He I know my also I've accounting no in fifty years ago it could have been proven one with DNA. Even your suspicions couldn't have been proven the way it is day so why I mean I think that's what's so interesting about these type purpose stories and yeah I I interviewed but I've had people write me and and find out similar things like this and yeah I mean the only time people knew Elizabeth. The baby came out like black or Asian. You're white. I really wouldn't know there. Were time for people like that kid. Does it look like everybody was dark and actually was out with this girl and and she's she's convinced that that something happened and she jokes around it with her mother. Like mom come on. And she won't do the twenty three and me but the Mama's like stop talking like she gets really mad about it that's a that's a red flag because I'm like why wouldn't you be like. Oh God take the test you Weirdo. You Unlikely started say that one hundred percent. I wasn't with anyone else so go take the test unless you switched at birth which you weren't right because we had video like putting on the bracelet then there's you know I know worry sometimes if someone is a little defensive like sorry people right okay so you so. How did you so then when your brother had the confirmation yeah hey are you gonNA? Are you GonNa meet him. Are you gonNA Out Remember this guy or anything or his mom going back to college so yes okay did and he he said I actually remember. MOM AND DAD may be fighting over him because it was mom's new PAL and they're spending too much time together and so I was like Oh really oh man. That's an early so I can see anyway. She had to cut it down. Make It. Yeah and you know. She went to her grave with this information. I some of her Best friends are still living. And I've asked them if they had any inkling and they were like absolutely not and I think that you know it's like my mom. My Mom Story Story. I'm writing a book about my story because it really truly from her birth. She just was screwed like she just had so much going issues going uphill the entire time. Yeah and Dan then later on in life having this crazy secret like it's really no wonder that she was a raging alcoholic. She asks you became it was bad and which occur occur. I mean she said they had a few drinks but she a drinker. That or just got progressively worse with age. I think that she was like a partier. Then I'm GonNa say it was more of a party or thing like five o'clock cocktails. Yeah but by the time I especially. By the time we moved down to the desert she was a roll out of bed and put some vodka in my orange juice kind of drinker and drink all day while Oh you were like Oh yeah. I had to learn how to drive when I was thirteen like I had to become the adult and I was the breadwinner when I was sixteen like. She couldn't keep a job and so I think that's another reason why I got married so young. I mean it wasn't that young but at twenty three I knew that that was the only way she was GonNa let me out of her grasp. Because every time I'd move out and try to be like independent. She'd say I'm going to be homeless. I can't pay the rent and so I'd get sucked sucked back in and I go live with her so her ex. You're who you thought was your dad. He didn't pay child support. or or now on your anything and so you know like like most kids from a divorced atmosphere My Mom pitted me against my dad and my dad pitted against my mom. And so my mom would say he's a deadbeat dad you know and so. Finally I'd get up the courage to say like mom seizure. Debbie and he's he's like I won't give that woman another sense of child support. I gave her properties in northern California. which would have been great if she could have held onto them? Yes but She she just panicked that that meant debt to her. Instead of like selling off a couple of those properties to pay for all the others she let them all go go to the bank and he said if I you know if I give her money she just buy cigarettes and alcohol. So I'd rather pay for the things that you need like when you when it's time for clothes shopping for the new school year. Come to me and we'll go on a shopping spree and then when it's time for car I'll be there when it's time for the stuff you need. I will you know. Let's get a bank account L.. Put money in your account and so like smart. It was okay. Yeah but and he knew that like this is what I was dealing with. But you know he couldn't like take me on. It's not like there was a couple of times where I'd be like I'm GonNa live with dad because he's more fun and obviously it takes me on a shopping spree and drives the corvette prevette and it's fun to be with Dad and she'd say okay call him and tell him that you wanna live with him inside dad coming to live with you. And he's like Oh that's not really gonNA work. Can you need to be with your mom and so I would feel displaced like. Yeah that's kids hard for a child. You know really to to feel like you were rejected. Put you up. Yeah to possibly being rejected to. She did knowing that he would be like well legally in my lifestyle. That's that's not a great idea. Yeah still as a child you know. I know my mom was terrible woman. She tried she really tried to be a good mom in the beginning. I think that there was some no doubt she loved me but she just couldn't get it together. She hadn't zero coping skills and so anytime life food. Throw her any sort of you know curveball. She would absolutely just crumble. And so I had to be the parent and be the stable one to you. You know really pick up the pieces and so you know that Constructs Kinda sucks but it probably made me strong. Yeah it'd probably really you know. Oh you would not be who you are today for. You weren't handed that deck of cards you know for sure. Did you know that when you fly. Almost everyone. Everyone on the plane has paid a different price for their ticket. So you could be sitting next to someone who paid five hundred dollars less than you and if you are chances are you're that person used fair drop. I know you're probably going crazy.

Okay so I I met George so George so I write batching to George when he writes this nice. You know witty cute email. Yeah and I said well now that I've stopped balling I said you know I'm i. I do want me. Because he said I would love to have a relationship with you you I would love to meet you But if you don't want to I completely understand and it was your mother's wishes that I don't interfere so I never. I don't want you to ever think that I didn't want to who find you. I was just honoring her wishes and frankly I didn't know she was still or that she had passed away so I was like yes. I WanNa meet you I don't know what you said that she passed away. When you're about what thirty? Yeah it was two thousand so I think I was like thirty two. Okay and so She and she never. I'm at my kids. I you know but my dad did and it's so I call my Dad Dad. He'll always be my dad and Georgia's George Bonus Dad in And so he said I said let's meet somewhere in between he's in Pleasanton like let's meet somewhere in Bakersfield or something like how about I come down to the desert. I love the desert and it was July. And I'm like reassure it's so hot but he and helping came down his wife his wife and skipping I went and met them I got them and yes. I got some an upgrade at the Marriott. So let's I wanted to meet in like not in the restaurant. We're going to have dinner there. I wanted to meet him in the hotel room where it was safe record cry. Yeah and so I had like a little living room so anyway. He's so cute like I felt like I knew him. You know and he never saw me he was like. Did you see that picture of me and the paper when I was like I got hit by a car and it was kind of a big thing thing and they know you know just really kept my distance and when I scored goals and like it was a seriously small town like yes as a seven-year-old score three goals and make the paper here. It was a cute little town now. It's not so little but anyway he really didn't. He didn't know who I had become the high and so he was like trying to be a stalker on my facebook. Page a little bit you know because we did on facebook the after he found after you've found yeah and then that The the weekend that he or the day that he was coming down My sister friend me on facebook DOC. Yes yeah and she actually she frenemy right away. As soon as I made conscious is the one that was just three months older than you. Yeah she didn't she hadn't done the math yet okay. She thought that it was after they got a divorce fathered another child and so but he told me and and he told he told then Dan Yeah about Eighteen nineteen years ago. Yeah he had a liver transplant and so he thought that he was on his deathbed also a heavy drinker but it when the doctors told him he was like killing himself drinking he stopped drinking and So he told them. Just say no I may or may we have not fathered another child out there. So if somebody contacts you randomly like it. I want you to know the story. And so he told them the story of how he he and Robbie met at College and Psalms Rob. Yeah and so. I don't think he put any ages or dates in history so food so when he comes down to the desert we have great meeting We had dinner the Brexit for breakfast. I introduced him to my daughter's sixteen year old twins and we had lunch and then Dinner again that night and then they left super early so as okay now I wanna meet the sisters. But I'll come up there and I want to include my brother because he's feeling in really weird about this and I need my brother to meet and like George as much as I like George so I went to my brothers and we hung out one night and then we the next morning we drove. We drove by our old the house and like we're like remember when we play hide and seek and then. I'm like taking my park. The park that I used to fly my kite. Play play soccer and it was so those three goal made the paper. Yes let's remember my blurrier exactly. Yeah and so. Then we went to his house and assuming so my sister Michelle you know like the door and she was like is that my sister and lake so she really embraced. What are the girls names? And what are their ages. So Michelle is also fifty one and that's what you are yes and Are No she's she's fifty two. Because I'm almost fifty two okay. Yeah and And and then randy must be fifty four. I okay yeah so Randy came like two hours late because her husband was in terrible accident and and he's okay but it was scary Gary for a while so but so we're you know she's like so. Tell me how this look like you that same thing. We have this like this same out now. Oh No 's mouth and smile kind of thing and Michelle's hilarious actually love her. She's like storytelling jokes. And I was like. She's amazing. Like I really WANNA hang out And they live in possibl. Okay and so So when I met her you know she's saying tell me the story. Why did you even do twenty-three me like some time in her? How I wrote to collect that DNA relative that highest ranking one and And Colette was first cousins with Your Biological Dad. George Yeah Okay Hunka prior everybody gone. Yeah Yeah and so I throughout the day like it must have happened in my email. I did say it must have happened around April nineteen sixty seven because I was born January eighteen sixty eight and also Michelle Kinda goes. Wait hold on. How does that Dan and she's like? How's that mom was pregnant with me? And she was like sucks. You suck fuck us. She was pissed. And then I'm all like my story halted and then she goes okay. Pre please proceed. She's not your problems and she's like thrown nasty looks at him. But you know I think that was hard for her throughout the She kept kind of like a wind. Her was her mom's still alive. Her Mom Thomas Still Alive. Okay also tried to friend me on facebook and I was scared like what do I do. I haven't I haven't accepted that. She has filled her mom in with the story. Yes and is the MOM Piz. Oh she is pissed okay. Cheating Bastard is what pretty much also like. I don't know what her thoughts were like this whole time. Now she goes back to that time you know and when he was going to school and was like Oh oh my God and he said that I was not letting you have time to study or whatever. Her story may be from memory. or You're trying to keep me down and I want to learn other things and little you know and so it's like it. Changes her whole memory or did she blamed herself when now she's like. Oh my God I never should have blamed myself right now right right so I think that's an interesting perspective absolutely. Yeah I I mean. Part of me wants to talk to her like Sam. Sorry like my mom wasn't like a temptress you know but she choose extremely unhappy in her relationship. My I mean she would tell me stories about my dad. You know nobody's perfect. Yeah they did not have a great relationship and on You know what I wonder is so. She's you know has a bone with George and I'm like you know a six weeks later. Whatever the period doesn't come she takes whatever kind of pregnancy test you've had I don't know if on a stick back then or you had to go to a doctor or what how you knew? But what if she wasn't regularly sleeping with your dad definitely line then you immediately go home and like you jump on your husband's Dick and just hope that he doesn't do the math. I'm pretty sure that knowing my mom they. They weren't having sex because my mom knew he was cheating with his the secretary. It's like madmen back then. So he was. It was late. Seventy swingers and everything else gorgeous and everybody threw themselves at my dad hot Italian and super charismatic so I think that she probably really went home. And then like the next night like did it with my dad. Yeah because she was like got a cover her bases right and then then that way she even if she was she in her mind she could tell herself no. Of course it's comes. It's right but you know as soon as she is my freckled skin like an. I don't look at tally in but ironically my eyes are almost identical to my dad's and they're identical to Brown eyes. Yeah and so Komo type but Georgia's probably like Six inches shorter than my dad. And my dad's big hunky driven guy and she's going to have the country club life she's not screwing that up right because Georgia's you know a cop and he like a beat cop at that point he actually did go on and do well for himself and retired early and travelled all over. The world did way better than my mom. I think my mom was just like kind of climbing. You know yeah and that was going to get in the way that was gonna mess up everything if that would have gotten out so she never told a soul. That's actually the title of my book. She couldn't tell 'cause her whole life she has stories. Listen and secrets and were there other men after that when you the two of you move down to palm desert yeah and later on in life. She she ended abortion tail tale which absolutely crushed her. How did you know about that? She told me she burdened me with a lot of stuff because so how old were you when she said I'm pregnant. I'm getting an abortion. No it wasn't it was after She was crying. I mean but that would happen often but She would be inconsolable. Sometimes and I and I would say just talk to me talk to somebody. Get it outright down. Burn it up whatever's like killing you inside get through it you know. And she just couldn't face it and so but I but she did say I had an abortion and I I'm just so shamed and again like how old were you when she had it to you know. I think that she was probably like thirty eight so it was legal but then I I guess I don't know. Yeah Yeah I think seventy three. Yeah Okay Yeah And then shortly after that we moved down to the desert I think she just needed to like start over remove but she you know she met this awesome guy in the desert and she was just smitten she probably met him at the nest because she actually took me. She would take me to the ness like anybody that knows palm desert you will know the nest if you don't you need to go no no matter what your age is because we were just saying. I can't believe that Shannon my sister. The first time we went was coachella weekend pastime and I didn't go to parties gifting like some social employer stuff and so I was like Yep heard about this and Shannon's told me about how funny it is an account we never got we went and he just fun because it's one of those places where people dance and it's so rare to find like a club that's not like an actual like Las Vegas nightclub that has dancing and there's people that are like my aides are people that are like closer to sixty and then all the young kids come to like dance ironically with old old people. It's it's like the best but you're there's like an there's like an eighty year old woman. That looks amazing. But like she like there's now the outfits are are grow because a lot of these women are like eighty but they're still dressing in a tube dress from forever twenty one yes with like the old wrinkly Tan legs and the big bright lipstick. And they're like thin but they have like the flat ass and the Tummy and the big hard fake tits. But they're in that they're still like rocket a mini. Oh Yeah what do you think. I'M NOT GONNA show up his Gams Omega and I see that and I'm like heather. Don't you dare become that. That's that's what your body will be like trying to peddle faces or pulled lips. Oh really basic so your mom used to take you to rip it up. Yeah how old were you go at. Probably Sixteen. I could buy her boos when I was sixteen like I didn't I didn't have a fake. ID or anything thing. I just looked like this like leslie wrinkles. And so like when she couldn't drive she does. Yeah Yeah So. I'd go down to the store and buy some for her. And what was her. Kerr drink of choice vodka straight so it looks like she had essentially a great guy said that she met a great desert not vodka. Yeah Yeah So. She met this guy and he took her down to Kabo and she he was like. Oh my God I'm in love. Here's rich yes from Newport beach. And so she's a boozer now. How old is she like early forties I'd say late forties a late for it. Yeah so she still looking good. Yeah she was good looking you know when she turned forty she cut off her hair and she thought life was over. Like we're still up in pleasanton. I think yeah and And I'm like this is so funny like people it's so different now yes But she kind of rocked the short hair and she always had beautiful legs and she was like super contagious laugh and she was a partier she was a good time. Yeah you know and so this guy. Ah enjoyed her But she was one of many and he was also married and so she had a habit of finding them and and being less yes and they would tell her all the time. Oh yeah I left my wife and I need to be consoled and Blah Blah Blah and meet me at the nest. Ah but no she never found love again and it's funny because now that I've heard of that guy that was the last one he and then how much longer did she live. After that relationship ended she died at sixty. Okay yeah so yeah and we'll see let's say eighty really. Oh Yeah so then. It was like those last ten years really a real demise. Yeah and she lives still lived in the desert. Yes and how. How often would you visit her? Would you have to financially help her. Yeah but you know When I got married she because I wasn't financially there for her anymore She moved back to Minnesota with her mom. Oh and then convinced her to become snowbirds so they would you know summer out in a Balsam Lake Wisconsin and then winter enter in the desert and it was kind of funded by my grandma and they were kind of golden girls together. It was kind of cute actually and then I had I ended up having a really good go to the desk is to know about now but grandma party and and Play cards and grandma was a socialite. We got our golf cart and she told around her little development and she was like everybody in your name and she was awesome. And so what was your was your mom a good daughter to that woman or did she take advantage of her mama but no she they were good to each other. Yeah you know they just they had a rhythm and then how did she pass your mom. Well you know three months before she passed. I had no audio. We're like near the end. But I knew I knew that she was drinking again and I stopped. I used to go over there. And if she'd been drinking I'd be like I. You know I gotta go like I can't and so I would just stop in. You need anything. I'M GONNA run to the grocery store or whatever and Anyway I had this piffle and I was like you know what I just WanNa love her. I just WANNA like She's so lonely and so sad and I'm just I just want a lover and like snuggle with her and so I'm so glad like I finally like I buried the hatchet with her and I would ah summer and so I'd go over there and it's let's go swimming and like I'd be like mom mom mom mom mom. What would dive and she would clap? And give me a seven or whatever ever and she's she's drinking but I just start drinking with her because I was just like I have kids and so I just kind of made it a thing where over there and get a little. You know buzz together and you're like in your late twenties then no I was. I was probably. I don't know you're making me do math. Have kids so I'm just trying to what I I think because she had my kids two years after she died. Okay and so it wasn't late. I had them when I was thirty. Five Oh all right the early thirties so you just took those t- that time dislike enjoy. The friendship of was great and I would say. Tell me stories you know. Tell me what are you remember when when I grow. I don't know why it was like intuitive. I had no idea but one so she started pushing me away and I was saying You know moment to come over. And she's like no. It's not good. I'm not feeling well and then like two days later moment to come over and she's like oh no not tonight you know. I've got a headache and boughten. Her cough just sounded terrible. Was your grandma. I must still live at that and so she was a smoker. Yes they both were And and so I was like I was getting ready ready to go on a girl's trip and so I called her and I'm like mom I wanNA come over. I WanNa give you this thing before I leave. And she's like no you can't and I was like what is up with with you and and she said well honestly I'm coughing up blood and I was like are you kidding me like that's bad. Let's go to the doctor. I'M NOT GONNA go on this trip. I'll stay home and she was like. Oh my gosh. If you do that I'll be so mad at you. You know you deserve this Blah Blah Blah and so. I asked my husband at the time I mean. I'm like Phil which I do. Like he's like all over there all check on her so he reported he went over there and it was really bad and he he took her to the hospital so kicking and screaming. She did not WanNa go and so when I came home on Sunday you know I I called and got the updates and everything and came on Sunday and I was like he's like just so you know there was like ah empty bottles everywhere and I'm like I knew drinking but like I didn't realize how moss leaving Las Vegas kind of like this is the final. It was bad yes yeah and so I said I'm afraid if I go to. He's like we're going to put her through a you know this is like it's very serious. She's not it's not well so so I said if I go over there right now I'm gonNA. I'm GonNa Yell at her so I'm going to wait until tomorrow. And unfortunately she took a turn for the worse that night and so by the time I got to the hospital so they were kind of like stalling me because the doctor. They choose coating apparently and so they came out when they had gotten her under control. And there were like Hi Do you does your mom have a dnr and like what. Like I just was like we're we're at that. Oh Wow and she did but I didn't I WANNA say that I didn't want to be the person to make that decision and so I'm like you have to keep her alive. I don't know I gotTa Talk to my my grandma and got my brother here and like Oh my God and so my whole world world just cry is like I can. I just see my mom. They're like it's scary but you can if you want. We're trying to clean up as much as we can but she just coated and some like what does that even mean. What does that mean Blake? Your heart stopped. Everything stopped and they had to intubate her her life. Yeah okay so she's got blood count. I see her and I'm just like I'd like looked and I was like. Oh my God. If that's going to be the last thing yeah in my mind I don't WanNa see and so I didn't. I didn't go near. I just saw from afar car. I was like Oh God so My my husband and his parents came to the hospital and Actually my husband at the time and his dad held her hand as she passed. But I couldn't yeah I couldn't like I don't Wanna see her like that but when you did your and did your dad her ex husband like did he come to the funeral or anything like that. No but he was like you know the way he always dealt with stuff you know. Look can I do you know how can I help you. And he was good he was there for me but he didn't want to be a part of it and she didn't WanNa funeral or anything she had like A. We had like a little celebration of life for her. And you know I'd like a picture. Slide show yeah a little you know leave behind thing but it was weird. I couldn't cry. I didn't cry and then and how was it for your grandma to lose her like companion. Yeah it was tough in. My grandma passed not long after that she passed in two thousand three so she did get to meet my my kids but Yeah my my kid. I'm I'm convinced my kids couldn't have come to me while I was dealing with that. Yahoo AH after right now because I was I was a little relieved because she would drink and drive and I was like. Oh my God. She's going to kill someone ourselves so much stress stress-free so stressful yeah But it's funny because my last words to her was don't be a fucking martyr. Hung up on her lovely so I feel like mother of the year Earth honor the air and so I did what everybody does. I went to a psychic. Yeah Yeah because I needed closure and I was hoping to like you know get closer and I did. Actually where does this psychic say. She's Frenchwoman and it's kind of cool so I when my mom died. I knew that I was going to get this ring that my dad bought the story behind the ringlets. My Dad bought it for her because it was a sorry I I know I slept with my secretary but I really love you and here have some diamonds. That was her story to me. Yes and so. She's like I want you to have it because I was pregnant with you you when your dad gave it to me so I'm like okay. Great so They pulled it off her hand in the hospital and gave it to me because she couldn't get offer hand right so I was wearing that. And that's all I was wearing when I went to the psychic and She she says you know Okay tell me about your mom. I'm a little bit or she says you WanNa contact your mom. She's here like I was like. Oh Wow okay yes. And then all of a sudden she starts. She's like Whoopi Goldberg. She's like she's in on me and she starts bawling and like and my mom used to cry all the time like my mom cry at McDonald's commercials. Yes so I felt like oh well. She's this is happening and she was like She still happy. You're wearing her ring and I was like how would she know that it. It's not like an an Tiki right thing. Yeah and it's You know three rows of diamonds. It was pretty. Yeah and yeah and so She said a couple of other things and was interesting. I have defended tapes so it was. She gave me a cassette tape at the end of this and but there were two things that she was saying and I was like. I don't know who that is and I was like. She's talking about George now now. I haven't found the tape. No so I have to find the tape and the you like what happened with that. But if that's 'cause there was probably three things where I was just like I I don't know what you're talking about. I don't know who that person is right and But everything else she was like nailing she was like. I've loved the last summer this last summer together and I was like. How would she know so I felt closure one of the first thing she said was? I'm so I'm sorry that we were in a fight. I and I pushed you away. I never wanted. I didn't want you to see me like that and I was like okay that makes sense and I forgive you for not you know Being in there whatever and so anyway have you shared with your dad. George Biological Dad like kind of like her sad life after turn. Yeah and how did that make him feel sad. You know for her but he still sees her this fabulous woman you know and so I kind like that. It was actually a big skip. said that he's like I love hearing. George Yeah I love hearing him talk about how your mom you know. Looked or how that she drove the car and you know she was smart and witty and they had that fun together and I don't know that side of my mom you know what I mean I. I know the stories that my dad would tell me about her being terrible and embarrassing Blah Blah Blah and. I have those stories to yeah. She embarrassed me terribly in high school and Steph coming to my tennis matches and being buzzed and stuff more than lake up on the curb in the car and rolling following like what would have possessed her to come to while you're like playing tennis. You see this happening. Yes they're like your mom nope. Aw Oh I mean so. I grew up with what not to be as a mom. And so I. It's just interesting to look back doc. At like what they were going through as a couple your mom and the man she was married to in that he was a serial cheater and she'd been hurt over and over and you know it'd been you know she's in the sun happy marriage and then it's like she's having this resurgence and she's having fun and she's going to college and Ange edge serving the spark and it's like ears just wanted to be love exactly owner loved and desired. And you know yeah yeah I mean technically she's married to someone else. That was a sin or whatever you WANNA call it. But it's like it's really it's you know it all worked out at a homework. It is work out and they made the choices that they felt. Were the best choices for you and for the time and for Society for Science. Yeah that you're not gonNA know you don't have to make those decisions you know now now you you don't get away with it now. I think people still probably try to do that. But it's a lot scarier of a daily basis like once. She made that decision acidity she could be done with it. But like if it was two thousand nineteen and you're listening to this girl and you're like and you have a two year old and a six month old that that might not be your husband's that's something that's like you know you it's GonNa haunt you gonNA catch up with the and it's GonNa it's GonNa be a stress schrafft's that's going to be part of your life forever. Yeah and you know. I don't know what my advice would be to someone like that in this day and age because it's it's their life and you you know I can't imagine how complicated that would be like. Reveal to you know your spouse or I'm not sure you you try to do them take your husband's hair and take slob for your babies now secret find out just no. I mean that's what I would do. I would try to find out the the truth on my own. I and then sort of go. Okay you know. And if the truth is that it is not his biological child I think I just don't I think you want to carry the around for fifty years. Yeah in this day and age. I mean it would've nuked to families. Essentially yes and I think my mom knowing my dad at the time Being a hothead he could have murdered him or her all of us or ended up in jail at least for like a fight to completely and and but you know at the very least he would rejected me because he if I wasn't his even even though I was the apple of his eye. Yeah you know if he would have found out even if I was forty and found out while he was alive it would have really messed them up. Yeah so I he he would not have been able to handle saint so you are close and having fun with both your half sisters. There's I wouldn't say close. I say you know we're building a relationship every once in a while they'll comment on something on facebook and I'll be like okay but like I wanNA make plans. I want to get together her. I I'm into traveling and so I don't mind going up there and doing the work that I do. I can do from wherever now. Here's another question. Our those two sisters very close and you think at any point there could be threatened by you becoming closer to one of them. I know I. I think that it's really like the three musketeers thing. Never really leave works even with friends. It's tough and so you know somebody's GonNa like somebody a little bit better and yeah yeah I think they're they're close but You know from an outsider. I really feel like an outsider. Yeah there's some you know they're just different. They're very different right. Just like my twins and they're actually elite identical twins but they couldn't be more opposite right and so but they still love each other in a like super codependent way but great but I I don't see that love between them. I see like care and so but you know I'm total outsider. I would love to get in there but I I think that they I. I thought they might be a little bit threatened with a relationship with George but they've both been like. I'm so glad you're in and like Michelle reached out when she knew I was meeting George the first time she said I'm I'm so glad you're meeting dad. She didn't say my dad and I was like really thankful that Michelle was the one that was super inclusive. Yeah but she was the one that was just the four-months-old months older than you right. She's the one that did that. Yeah and but yeah I think she's okay. You know I got a so. This is all happened within the last what you hear. Wow yeah so it'll be really interesting to see how it goes because you know there's been a lot of shows about More about like adoption and find your biological parents. Yeah and you know and then they do like the follow up and you know. It's this big great moment that we see on TV TV and then the follow up is like got weird after we didn't really want to see each other after strange and then I this is many two years ago but I had a like a friend of a friend that found out that she had this full sister like they were both adopted out full sister and they finally meet at the airport report and they were wearing now. This was like the mid nineties but they wore the exact same outfit not knowing they both had like black leggings and like a gap gene ensure my God but it was kind of like that crazy things like that and then you know and so I think it's really cool but then it's a a lot of expectations awkwardness and respect for each other and respect for relationships. And you know and you don't really know where where it's GONNA lead. You know. I think that they you know for me. I'm like why am sister to that's awesome. But they're like well. I have a sister you know. But but they're not rejecting they actually loved my brother and I'm so glad that he was involved with that. He's super lovable. He's a great guy and so Unlike Ken this is our. My brother's name is Ken and so was my dad's his junior And so I'm like this. Is You know a possible new like there's a big family. George has a huge family. And so I'm coming from. You know the whittaker family that I grew up with was really big Sunday. Italian billion dinners like I. I'm not letting go of that Italian culture. I'm Italian but I'm not now I'm Irish but you know then I had. I married into an Italian family. That was really big. Sixty people on the desert. Anybody that spates they're all related and And then when I divorced him like I lost that what family my complete orphan and so I was like the last few holidays you know I was the my girls go with dad for holidays because has I want them to have the cousin experience and stuff and with if they're all getting together. Let's do that you know but and then I'm sad lonely on holidays and so we just like have our own friend friend getting imagining right now. Like if I got an email because my parents are both gone and They didn't have a perfect marriage. But one thing I was always really confident about is a really never had any suspicions that my dad has ever cheat on my mom and I'm just imagining if I got a call and proof that like somewhere before me after whatever there's this other person yeah yeah and would you welcome that person totally. I would welcome the person. Yes absolutely But I don't know that it would like I don't know that it would change the way I felt about my dad because I'd be again. He what he was in advertising -tising there he was like literally worked for a vote. Was the name of the company on Madman. He worked on Clemmie let me frank or I can't remember the name of it but The Ken Ericsson. Okay last is the war in the last episode of Batman John Haymes character search working for McKenna Ericsson out in La. And that's where my dad went and worked in La for that. So I asked him at the end of his life like I was like debt. Because we're watching and madman you know and I'm like come on was like this much cheating and like boning happen and like he's like yeah but it was a lot with the owners wives the younger like junior guys were boning the owners wines'll on and I'm like what did you think that he was like go for their dicks like God data and it was like as he was getting older he would like share more like juicy scoop four ever did and so I still I would be beyond shocked locked in like really surprised at the same time. I'd be like well. You know that happened and then I'd also be like I mean if the person was I guess you know you're going to be judgy. If the person is similar to you I think as social status stuff then you might be more accepting it somebody. That's like Limina trashy life and they're like oh great sister handling your shot already have real siblings like that. That are nightmares. You know so I guess it would be that but if it was someone that was like kind of great right I would welcome it because you know On the five and my sister Shannon who you know is really the only sibling that I have a relationship with. So it's like I then I'd be like okay but I guess everyone should just be prepared prepared for the email my age and you know up and younger all around. You know because it's like it's GonNa happen well that's why there's a new show on TV about it. I I think yeah but he so he didn't. My brother was like unsure about doing the twenty-three meat he's like remember. Those is years when I was a bartender. And I'm like yeah he's like we'll Remember that number of women that I gave you that I thought that I had maybe had sex with and I was like a Sh- you're worried about your odds of having a kid out there and he's like kind of maybe so he closed his down and made it super private but when we were together this last time we were sitting he has a boat. And so we're sitting on the boat and I said well. Let's do the math you were. You're a bartender when you're much younger if you've father to kid they'd be over eighteen eighteen so it's not like you'd have to pay child support. He's like good point. Let's open it up and see so we're looking at. We're like an and as soon as you open like you view view your DNA relatives. I'm like nobody popped up as like your your son or your daughter. You know I'm like look at WHO's this woman and that we have in common that must be on Mom's side and it was another it's like she was given up for adoption but it was like nineteen sixty some like that can't be mom because that's when he my brother was is borne so who suffer a cousin or saying I don't know it just it showed up at somebody on both of our DNA relatives and she's actively looking so it's gotta be either my it's like a second cousin once removed or something like that but it's not like your mom had a team baby no it gave up like somewhere in their in their lineage. Either a brother or sister or You know what I mean had had out of wedlock a and gave up for adoption. Her cousin or something. Yeah Oh interesting so it gets juicer. Yeah Yeah Pretty soon. You're like okay. I got not enough relatives very not anymore. Thank you so much ink was really really interesting. I'm glad you came out. I'm excited when you are done and with your book and it's available you'll have to come back on track but I'm glad we got a little juicy scoop preview and Yeah Bring Your twenty three and me stories. RAZER ANCESTRY DOT COM stories to be our new juicy segment. Thank you kate thank you.

The magic began. Hello and Jameh it's Raquel and I am really excited to have today's guests on for the second time the highly requested Ashley would the creator of a line within where today you know. We're GONNA continue expanding on our souls library. The the Akasha records and connecting with all of our lines within our CELENA ones within that connects us with Universal Forces Universal Guidance Truth Star Wisdom.

Then you know that Ashley is not only a powerful channel with very strong gifts but also reignites that within ourselves to simply by sharing this universal wisdom from higher realms. The Rum's that she connects with it seems on the daily basis. Because she has. She activates her line within herself night. Wand and is sharing this energetic frequency frequency with all of US teaching us how to activate arlines within and so this episode we expand on the Akasha records and she answers. There's many of your questions that you sent in on my instagram story. which thank you so much for doing so? We got to as many questions as possible in in our time frame and we just honestly had a really fun time she indeed is following her Dharma her purpose and inspires me to deepen deepened.

Listen to the beautiful wisdom that stream through her. And if you're curious more about Ashley indeed indeed go to align within DOT COM and she spells it A. L. N.. Within which. I'm all about her branding. I mean it's so cute. She's on top up of it. Her instagram pages full of great quotes too. I mean high. I like this bathed in the glow of moonlight and allow the energy to wash over you surrender elect go all right. I am doing that will not tonight because I mean it's still newman season. And it's a little dim but you know what I can bathed in the glow of the stars and allow their energy to wash over me. She reminds us to do these little things daily and I love that. I love her love her. She feels like a big sister. which is crazy? I haven't even met her in person yet but I feel like I have so. Apparently we probably just have past lifetimes. But I feel like I met in this lifetime. Ano- maybe we've breathe into the same air for a moment and didn't even realize it but she feels very familiar very very much like a sister. We're all in this together Q.. High school musical. Oh dear all right well also thank you so much to the Yummies who have been reviewing. I always WANNA shout out three a week and if you feel like reviewing feel free to leave your instagram a grim handle so I can shout out your instagram handle or not. You can also leave your name or I can see your podcast user names but I want to say thank you too shelly. Nine four zero one Nisa Seventeen and steph wagoner. Thank you guys so much so so much for your reviews is which I mean do I even have to say how much a means to me. It's obvious that means the world and so thank you. Thank you I am considering and I would like your guys thoughts on this. Instead of having an Intro I will just share my thoughts. reveal my thoughts on the episode in the out Tros House so that way you turn on the podcast we enter right into the episode. I can just have an icebreaker with the guests whether I know them well or not and share who they are in front of them and then that way you are introduced to who they are. Give them their introduction their resume data in their presence. And then Altro time I can recap share my thoughts my feelings. Perhaps if I've had any other experiences you know after an episode. I'll be like man Dan. This'll be really cool to share. But I can't give it away because they have a heard it yet something about doing that instead and keeping everything short so oh nuke people that come in they don't have to listen to me ramble. They can't if they want to the end and if they don't want to that's fine and if you don't want to that's fine but but my ramblings can just be in the end instead of making people feel like they have to listen to in the beginning in order to get to the gold wisdom of the guests all all right well anyways speaking of wisdom I think it is time I believe it is time. Time to let the magic begin with Ashley Judd Actually all be looking at my phone together some of the questions but the I'm staring right now at the window as well and there's a ginormous orange tree which has the right this most delicious dark oranges. I just wish I could send you some because they are so good. They're just a right outside my window here so there are Ganic and it's a yummy. Where are you in California? I'm in Palm Desert Right now. Oh my goodness I just booked a trip to palm springs or Palm Desert. Wherever are you kidding me? Okay well are you gonNa be there will now. I'm going to have to make sure that I'm here because I definitely will be driving up between La and hear back and forth. I I stay here sometimes. 'cause it's so grounding the atmosphere there's four texts here and you'll see it. It's extremely relaxing. Oh It's our fourth winter going and it's on our list of things that we want to do is to buy a home there because we've come for winters in a row and last winter like we've stayed between a week to two weeks this time we're seeing a week but we're just like we just gravitate towards it. It's just it's so healing. It's we're going to go to L. A.. As well and I was going to do some work things. I'm like no like no. Oh you can't hear the energy of pump springs palm desert like. Oh no and all around there like it's just so relaxing. Yes yes and trust me. I think it's so beautiful out of the balance of La in palm desert. 'cause I know L. A. Does have that excitement for work and I'm so many amazing missing souls that are there that WanNa do so much and create so much that's amazing to be around but I haven't been injured chills right now because you're going to be here in you're right. This is the energy like if you want to have that space to simply relax. There's a reason why people come here to retire. There's something about the atmosphere here. My Dad and I just think it you know it's otherworldly because every single person we know that just comes here unless it's you know an atmosphere like Coachella for the moment the second hugh come here. You can't help but just want to relax but also listen a lot within. You've received so much clarity. I've been able able to ground so much here amazing every time we've been there. We've had major major breakthroughs breakthroughs and yet is just. It's a very very very special place in I love La too. I definitely love La. We we went every two three months in two thousand nineteen to La for like work stuff and we thought we were going to move there and an just for this Trip didn't want to do all the driving. And the it's just everything there takes long because it's a bigger city so of course it's going to take a lot longer whereas palm on springs you like set up shop and go to whole foods go by the ball go for a walk like it's just so chill no and you know what after this call. I'm going to go down to the pool and lay out for a little bit. I think we'll there you go. That's where my dad and I go at a date. He says that's his way of meditating. I love it. It's so so but it's actually nice and it's so true you just lay there and you allow yourself to get kissed by the sun and you kind of just allow a moment of blink space in silence. It's in the mind which is so. Meditation is what you make it like exactly. You can meditate while you're walking you meditate while you're driving cooking so you're for at least people even if they're not drawn to meditation maybe they're drunk to a workout or something like what matters most is to like have that time that let's face to tune within and allow all the outside distraction in noise to just dissipate for a while or float away for awhile as you go within in in some way and so for some people maybe that is lay out and tanning. Maybe that's why they don't realize it they might think it's because they want to get a Tan but it's really because they their soul gives a moment of peace using quiet and relaxation and it's just amazing that there are so many ways that we can do it that we can have that time in space to able to clear our mind and go within. Yeah it makes me think of the blue zones in the world or the people live past is two hundred like centurions and it's the whole lifestyle like it's the lifestyle of just being present and not allowing your energy to move move from one thing to the next to the next to the next the next even though sometimes I thrive but like yeah just finding that space in everything that you do like just being present and Ooh. It's just it's beautiful. Yeah a life practice. It is a life practice. I have to remind myself a constantly constantly. I I mean 'cause we are also human wired a certain way so it really is always a practice and we can easily fall off if we don't continue to honor the practice and I've had had my fair share of both where I'm on it and I'm off it and I know what it feels like to feel off it and I feel off so practicing it. In every moment that comes to mind mine is so key even those off moments though are like such beautiful parts of the journey because there's always a reason why are off and and I always think lake when people tell me they're like I don't receive anything through the line I must be broken. Must be something. I'm like. Urine such a sacred space right now because right now you can be asking yourself why like why. That's such an important part if it was if you were on all the time. Yeah you would grow and evolve these moments where you say you're off or you're living out of it or you can feel that you're turned off. It's like well why what happened to get to that point like what was in your life that that caused you to get to. That point is like how were you giving your energy away in that. You felt that you didn't have enough often anymore for yourself. Like what happened and then really dig their and learn and be like wow. This was such a teaching moment. I was in it the whole time. I just didn't notice notice it. Yes I think that as long as your heart is beating and your breath is breathing your lungs breathing. Your heart is beating. You are on every single. A person is on. There's just a different degree of on. And that's what flows within us. Oh my gosh feel my heart beating as you're saying that when it comes it to being able to just allow yourself that compassion because some of us it's not like we can just feel compassionate. We have to actually consciously allow the compassion in when. I say that it's like okay. I'm going to recognize that. This is part of my experience right now and it's going to help my soul grow grow. It's going to help my spiritual growth in some ways so this is happening for me and we have to practice mantra such as that just reminding ourselves simple simply simply just reminding ourselves. We don't even have to complicated with it. That really just helps ease. The mind might not fully make you feel better in the situation and but it just allows more ease and grace and somehow the grace really does fully become embodied. I just did did an episode last week about not resisting yourself. Because even when you're in those moments and you're giving yourself the love and you're giving yourself the compassion when you're like this is for me this is for me. We still have a tendency and I say we because episode was generally about me resisting myself but we still. We'll have this ability of holding onto something that we know. We need to let go of to move through it. But we're like well. Okay I know this is for me. I know this is for me. I but I'm digging my heels in and I'm not going through this without kicking and screaming. We're like resisting our own energy. However hard a situation is is only hard because we're making it hard and that's pretty difficult to swallow because it's like are you serious there's like real atrocity is going on in the world all the time but it's like how you place your energy allows you to navigate through things in a degree of calm and ease whatever that degree is for you and a a very simple example of this is I was in a car accident on December the thirteenth? And Yeah the first time when I was in a car accident with my daughter I was going through. Like this whole spiritual reawakening and really getting in touch touch with my gifts on an elevated level but then I was in this car accident and a month later I discovered the Akasha records so then when this car accident happened I was like. There's the gift within this. I don't know what it is but there's a gift within this and I went through an emotional roller coaster I could feel my energy my frequency heightening and it got to the point where the energy and my body was so intense that I reached for support in the form of anxiety medicine for the first time in almost a year and I had a hard time doing that and I was like I thought I had come so far. I thought I'd come so far and then and I was like wait. A second like growth is not linear life is not linear none of this is linear and in order for me to move through the situation and see it as a gift for myself itself. I need to give myself type of energetic support that will that will help me with that. And so receiving this support with love and kindness kindness for my body and the kindness for my energy and just knowing that it's something physical they can ground me right now is going to allow me to move through this and pass ask this and a did it only like two weeks convict two years but it did and everything evened out in an all smoothed out but it was because I didn't resist myself and resist just my own energy of what I thought. It should look like so in those moments that are like really really difficult. This doesn't mean you're taking medicine. This doesn't mean you're seeing a doctor but whatever the thing is that you've played a boundary up for yourself that's health that's not for me or that's the support. That's not for me or I can get through this without that. Don't resist yourself. Allow yourself to move through experiences with whatever supports you need and see them as teachers and received them with love because because that's how you can keep the love through even very very difficult moments That's such a beautiful message. Thank you all right. YUMMIES AMIS so a quick interruption to talk about a sponsor who has been here since day one so some of you may be very familiar but I encourage did you to continue to listen to this short little ad as you may or may not know the power of Nutrition and everything that they you provide.

It actually has ten strain probiotics. Twenty five billion organisms and each bottle has thirty Vegan capsules for you so you get your thirty day supply and it really has helped my gut fight a lot of different issues shoes especially somebody that does eat a lot of fiber. I realized that That did have an impact on my gut in some way. So it's nice to have the proper digestive enzymes and probiotics in there to allow muscle to run a little most smoothly.

Uh I was in the records for clients this past week like lots of Stuff happened lots of stuff happened but I was in the records for two clients this past week and I could barely open them. I was having so much. Like messages isn't chatter from the pinnacle saying. Stop using this prayer. It's time for your own like you're you're a leader using someone else's prayer let us channel when through for you. It's time for your own and I was like not now. I'm in a session. Like just let me use this prayer and opened the records this way but this summer like the eclipse when it's apparently like my eclipse season because it's in Gemini and I don't even know how to read my chart properly but my astrologer was like okay. It's a big summer for you know that it's all going to come through this summer. Like a new prayer to enter the records with and from the Pinnacle who revealed to me since being on your show show that they're creating and I'm in and it's coming through his information so yeah lots has happened. Lots has happened. But and there's been lots of unfolding since since the car accident but it was on December thirteenth and it was like the day after the twelve twelve portal Just might chills are insane right now. Ashleigh uh-huh pay really are especially when you also said that they are Palladian. Because we're remember you didn't really have a way to identify them. You just recognize them as the pinnacle And it's just amazing how they are a collective group of such lovely soles goals that are also as end. They're doing what they can to make sure to get messages across to save our clinic and Zuma's Abso- so I appreciate that. Are you ready to get into some of the questions that you were as I'm ready. I'm ready I'm excited. Everyone thank you so much for asking questions. That's yes it's so fun I just put them up on my story like an hour ago. ooh I saw okay. Good okay good. I don't really. I haven't really been spending too much time on instagram lately. And it's been very nice but at the same time when I do you go on. I would like it to be something. I'm communicating with people. In this way you know sharing questions that they have for others or Yada Yada so I was really excited. Had to go on just for this in particular. I am going to ask you a question. I if that's okay. Yeah I of course your relationship with instagram has been like up and down down and all around do you Kinda just flow with it however you feel or do you feel any type of like attachment of should use this or is it just just kind of a day by day thing or both how do you how do you live with within the ground right so I definitely have seasons and perhaps it's because because of my sign in the moon at the time that I'm just Kinda starting to see the cyclical pattern As far as that part is concerned But what I just notices as We all go through. UPS and downs are physical expression are emotional expression in end as far whereas instagram. It doesn't matter. I realize whether I'm having a high moment introspective moment but there are times where I feel that. I don't need to be on there because I'm questioning it. Actually I had Paul Sela gone and he's kind of catalyst this when I was talking with the guides he channeled mold about instagram and just kind of receiving like a different perspective on it for some reason I was like you know what I'm GonNa take some space from this Just to make sure that I'm I'm always being authentic and true to me and what messages I really care to deliver. There are truly times. I just don't WanNa go on it each day. It's not that I intend to not. It's just I just don't because I don't feel like it all all. Open the APP for a second the second open it. There's something that's just like now the closest okay so I do and I don't really look at it the rest of the day. That's really really wise. A view and brave to follow those messages ages and to trust and to just to just trust because I feel like with instagram. There's always that fear of if I'm not here the I'll be forgotten or my work. We'll just like like follow away or I'll just be erased by the algorithm as in like I'll be I'll go hiding and I practiced that bit over the past like it was like two or three weeks. I was barely on it at all. Like maybe like one or two posted week. which is a lot less for me where I usually post like five five times a week once a day and it felt very freeing and then I also like I receive see from the pinnacle that it's like they said like when you post with intention and an energy behind whatever it is you're putting up it doesn't matter if if you only post a little bit because at frequency will be felt by so many more people they said like it's kind of like when a whale is swimming like a wheel doesn't ask to be seen the Wales just seen because it creates such a massive vibration in the water? 'cause it's so it's such a big animal and so though like when you when you act like a wail and like put something out with the intention of this is this these words have a big frequency and then let it be. You don't have to be loud like you can just be how you wish to be and trust that it will be received. Yes yes and I. I think that that's such a beautiful message that it should be about. You know that true pure attention. And so especially as I'm evolving learning more and more about my authentic soften. I just want to always be super on us and just make sure that there should be no expectation station. No wait on anything except for just pure intention for whatever message your heart feels that you want to uh-huh yeah share. I think that that's beautiful. Thanks for answering. I was curious. Yeah no that's you know what's interesting is I. Had this feeling you were going to ask really yet. Now's like you know what when she does ask. I'm just going to see what comes through as it's not a big deal in my life. That's I don't really think much about my why but I just know that there is a reason because you're right. It is such a very apparent up and down relationship And I had no intention of asking I just pitches came up as something. I'm ask so clearly someone. Someone listening sat down. I was like okay just opened me up as lake as a conduit for a message that is designed for the highest good like just work through me and then whenever I ask for that stuff comes through and comes runs out that I'm like I don't know why that's coming up but I just have to ask that so there we go. That is so funny. I just started doing one on ones with people. Bull which is amazing People that listened to the PODCASTS. And this is my very first experience of you know. I'll pray before and I'll open myself to being a vessel missile for whatever message. They need to hear do that on podcast but I did it for these individuals all like say something. This is my very first time experiencing it. I'll say as something and I'm like I don't know where the hell that came from. Apparently this is just coming out of my mouth. But it's it's it's as if like I'm you know I don't feel like I'm being I'm channel by somebody or being a directly channeled but something just kind of spurts out and fell start crying and I'm like okay. I guess you have to ask you. Why do you not feel like you're channel? I know I am channeling a note. Yeah yeah yet. But I don't feel like I've I'm channeling directly were they are were Kell is kind of in the background watching feel fully holy recall. I feel me But just you know I just feel like sharing something out of the blue and it's it's it's wild it's wild I'm like I have no idea where that came from but they're crying and I'm like okay great. You are receiving messages through through the line and every single person on the planet. Has This happen. Every single person receives messages through the line. And that is channeling. Like you're you're picking up a message or picking up your frequency and you're taking action on it and you're you're sharing it. That's channeling like yeah. There are many different ways to channel. There are many different ways to play an instrument there in many different ways to sing. Where many different ways to dance? But you're still channeling. You're still connecting to a message that came through the line and you're sharing it you're taking action on it and you're seeing the reaction like the causing effect from the frequency that you received and decided to continue to give. That's wild. Wow and everybody the everybody channels everybody. Every single person I know when someone's shares a message and they don't realize it it but I'm talking to someone were hanging out and they'll share something I used I don't often say it. Sometimes I might that. They'll share like a very specific message that it just really hit home. And I'm like I don't know if you know this but You indeed just channeled some information that I needed to hear and so I understand that aspect activate going through but when it's so specific it's it's weird it's weird And so it's it's just a weird different kind of Channeling because I know I channel when I- podcast but this has been a just a different experience. Yeah you're serving so it's GONNA come through to Halloween really. Yeah you're like you're you're opening yourself up as a messenger as like on the podcast. You are as well. I feel like it's more of a performer and still sharing the information. But it's through like you're on a stage but you're going your energy. She is going to be vibrating differently. If you're up on a stage than if your backstage holding someone's hand having a conversation with them like the frequency quincy alone like if you think just of like. Yeah I just said the Etienne's and I work with the audience who are the pentacle. Who are me? Who are you most most likely? Then we get this like idea in our mind of like Ooh these aliens and we like our human minds go into this whole frenzy but if you just think of it as waves like as literally energetic vibrations like a frequency your emotions are gonna feel different your your frequency your emotions are your your energetic communication with the universe and your emotion on a stage is gonNA feel different than your emotion when you're sitting down next to someone but you can still feel the same type type of frequency. The same type of message is just being delivered at a different volume. I guess like it's just being delivered differently so that makes so much sense. Yeah Gosh you're right. Yeah so it's not weird at all. It's it's completely lately as it is. I was GONNA say normal but I don't like that word. It's just completely as it is. You have your antenna up you're open and you're like yeah I'm here allow me to receive. And so they're like sure let's work with a situation. Where is your frequency out will will match that and in fact in this moment I am closing my eyes with my palms open as they're placed on my knees and and I just want to sail loud that I in this moment in 'em also opened to us as a vessel to receive as well will end align with the frequency? That Ashley is on As we connect and share messages ages for everyone listening to hear that may be received for them. Thank you thank. Thank you drinking this green juice that I can like when I swallow it I can feel it kind of like behind my job own if that makes sense like I get like a quench inch. They're almost interesting of it's the pineapple it's an. It's such a behind your job own. Yeah like you know right where. The JAW kidder's ear and like put your finger down right where the jaw is about to curve into the chin. Yes rate their find it. I can feel like a pinch almost when I drink juice interesting. I've never experienced that but also don't know if it's because we have completely different face structures like mine. I have a huge muscle the master muscle or whatever behind my job. Bone sorted out by Villanova. That's so interesting you're so chiseled old I'm very I'm person define. I'm a tatum effort. A woman indeed work so good. Aw Oh man. I've learned to embrace it for sure. Okay first question those debating on asking this first question just because we talked about this but I think it'd be a very great thing to just quickly sum up because the way you summit up is a quick right but be super clear and this one is from Jack Lit who just simply ask. What does caution record mean? Oh yeah that's perfect question and to begin with so yeah are a caution record. Every single person on the planet has an acoustic record and Akasha record is a metaphysical library of everything. Your soul has ever experienced so the word Akasha or a cautious means the beginning or the highest realm or the highest place in Sanskrit. I believe it's a Sanskrit word And I've also read a definition of that it's a means the place in which your soul was crystallized so the field old soul is born essentially and I even like to think of it as like how star is more like a star appears like. That's that's like that's higher solas born in that place and then your soul is this energy that continues to move through dimensions and experiences and and an and human bodies and every single emotion experience existence. Everything thought set your soul has ever ever gone through is recorded in this record in your personal Akasha record. Of course these these are not actual books there. It is a field so you access it. Through a frequency everybody can access it to a certain in degree because because it is your own energy like it is the history of your energy the history of your soul so that is a very very quick summary of what the Akasha record is perfect perfect summit. I'm sure that was super clear as well. And that's really all we need to hear Kennedy. Give it as a library of young my soul. Yeah it's a library of your soul and the thing is is the way that I work with. The records is going to be different than the way that other Akasha record readers with the records because when I read read for other people as well as when I read for myself I can see beyond the human existence and the way that I was taught I read half a book and that's basically how I remembered the skill that I was born with I didn't need further instruction but It was I read that the Akasha records only include the history of your human lives but I have seen that to be true. Oh and Morrison because I can see galactic lives. I mean animals. I've seen trees I've seen so many different existences and experiences in different dimensions. So that is how I work with records for myself and for people I read for which. You're very very few at this point. But everybody has their own experience in the records. That's so true that's beautiful. Do you ever think that some of us had been the same human or same animal or same tree as our consciousness evolved. We've kind of split off. You know almost like a A pyramid in people just keep splitting splitting splitting off. Ulta me ultimately were the same consciousness in a tree at some point. I've never thought of it that way. I wouldn't be surprised what I've been seeing a lot in my own work is that are ancestry. Line and are energetic line. I guess like Arsenal history intertwine and that we have been our physical ancestors and like we've lived. Those lives like basically that the past lives like there's two strains of of history but they really intersect connect and I want to do studies. Actually where family is like siblings. Take those DNA tests like those those like you know what they're called like those kids. We just have a little one sample yet. Yeah like twenty three me and I believe that siblings who should have the exact same results. They'd be different because your past lives are going to be showing in there as well. I have zero zero. I have nothing to go on other than that. This has been channeled through to me and whenever it comes through my eyes just tear up. And I'm like that's so real so real because I've seen seen past lives of mine inserting countries that when my brother did this test it all showed up on there and I was like. Oh Oh wow I like. I wonder if I've been you in a past life or you've been me or like like how this anyway. I'm not even sure where I'm going with all this but I it's something that I'm thinking about right now and trying to figure out how I can learn more on that makes a world of sense by the way that makes a world of sense that is wild because a lot of siblings actually do have different. DNA samplings and that has made people question the accuracy of these DNA tests. But that would make make a world of sense especially I know that my ancestors come from Scotland and so when I was there actually all over the UK 'cause I will feel it all over the UK UK and when I'm in the UK there is just something there where I just feel like okay. I'm also home right now too and I know that I've had ancestors there but you know for sure I've always wondered as well like my ancestors was also meet past life okay. MIC shows are rising all right known. Yeah I I always I take that as a truth whenever they get this massive truth bumps truth by indeed need. Oh this one. Alex changes the world asks. How do the records differ from other forms of channeling? I am going to bring us us back to when you were saying that you channel but when you're doing one on ones a people you didn't exactly think you channeling going to rewind back to that example because the Akasha records are their own entity and we'll talk about that in a moment but we all have this energetic line. That is running through us that I talked about a lot on the first episode but there briefly share where receiving messages through this energetic line. Twenty four seven simultaneously all the time like all the time that removing through our existence from the time hind that we take our first breath until the time that we transitioned on messages are coming through that line and that line connects to the highest realm which is the Akasha field. And so the message is you're receiving are for your highest good based on your souls. History based on your soul evolvement based on the life that you in Karnataka to live and all the desires that you have wrapped up within that your lessons your your purpose your gifts everything your experiences and and so the messages that you're receiving are connected to the Koschick field that is feeding you that information and this is happening for every single person now. I have never done channeling in like I I. I just believe that every single person that has channeling. It's connecting to the line and connecting to that information. You can call Paul how you're getting it as downloads or intuitive hits or gut feelings or Ping Zor you WanNa call it guides like whatever you WANNA call it. It's coming through. This is energetic. Line this energetic frequency. That is within you that connects to your souls history. Now if you're entering into the Akasha records that's a different story. That's a different practice. Connecting to the line is like breathing. It's like eating. It's like sleeping like walking and it's doing so with awareness because because with that awareness you receive and as you receive you continue to move and as you continue to move you continue to walk down your path. The pinnacle have shared with me at the messages passages we receive are like drops of water a little water dropper just dropping dropping dropping dropping dropping down the line if you take action on these drops of of water and you continue to move with them and you continue to to flow with them. You'll find yourself swimming in an ocean of ease but if you ignore them and ignore ignore these messages and they're usually very very subtle where someone wouldn't think I'm channeling right now or I'm picking up on these frequency. I'm picking up on news energetic messages. Like like clean out your closet or you should probably really take care of that bill payment this week as you know for your highest good led to not have this debt following you around or maybe you shouldn't go out tonight to have another drink or maybe you shouldn't do this or maybe you should do that like we get these messages all the time and the pinnacle of Said when you ignore them these little water droplets. You'll find yourself thirsty forever. Thirsty for more more thirsty for approval thirsty for acceptance thirsty for anything. You're always thirsty. Because you've lost that inner compass that inner guiding force that is coming from your Akasha field the highest realm coming through that energetic line within you guiding you and those messages are small and subtle just like drops of water so every single person is channeling and every person channels is connecting into that line. Now the Akasha records if you are entering the Akasha doc records. By way of the prayer. I use the pathway prayer. Currently that was channel by Dr Linda. How but as I was shared shared with the readings last or this past week on Monday? They don't want me to use that anymore so I don't know what I'll be using going forward but but it is. It's a very ritualised. Stick practice in that you say an actual prayer you do meditation. You elevate your frequency to match that uh of the record which is kind of like instead of listening to an audiobook really really quick that. Let's say that the the line is an audio book. Your someone's reading it to you. You're receiving it. That's like really fast on your phone instead. You're doing this ritual to walk into this historic beautiful library. Sorry that's GonNa take a little bit more work to move through into find what it is you're looking for so when you're entering into the Akasha records there's a there's a practice. There's there's a ritual. There's a there's a meditation there's a prayer and then there are rules and guidelines around what it's like to be in the records as well You will also find that. That is a practice same similar to the line but that it's a practice says to building it up like receiving more and more information than that. Every every single person will receive differently. But there's a it's a there are two different things to different Entity is we'll call it in terms of the Akasha records and receiving through the line. And I believe that every single person is channeling through the line. When you're in the records for me it's a much much deeper and the experience of channeling is much greater? I literally feel like I'm sitting down at the table with a pentacle. And they're just working right through me whereas when I'm with the line and not in the records but living and and just going about my life I can feel elbows like little droplets of water coming through those little. Those little messages coming through both are channelling just to a different degree Is there a place where we can go to seize rituals and you've talked about the some in part one. I believe you know a case. Someone wants to just like look at it as if it were a bullet point step by step. Is there any place where we can go and see these rituals. We have put together. A course called. Call the how to read the Akasha records. I think it's called by way of the Pinna color with the pinnacle and it was completely channeled through me of this. Is How the pinnacle want you to you. Learn to read the Akasha record so everything is in there. As soon as I got a new prayer I will be redoing. That course and I'm dating it But you can check that out or if you're interested you can also read the book How to read the Akasha Records Dr Linda? How that is the book that I read? D- I only read half of it in order for me to to pick up my practice. I put the book down after halfway because I just received the guidance of this is interfering referring. You just have to get to work like this is clouding your message. Just get to work so I put it away and started doing it my own way and now all the way that I teach it in that course is my not my own way but my interpretation of what is channeled through so I can give you the link to that will probably be magic and thank you by the way you're welcome this is from Helene Joann And she asks how how is receiving from the line different than our intuition the exact same thing. It's just language their words like there. It's a human human language a human word human label to put to receiving a frequency connecting to a frequency a frequency. That is already running through you. You're just becoming aware of it. You're remembering it. You're you're receiving it. And so some people call it intuition. Some people call it got feelings. Ping's messages downloads. Whatever you WANNA call it? It's the exact same thing it's the line now. You're at energetic frequency. That you're remembering and receiving exactly okay so I like this. This is from gals among league. How did Ashley Learn? Learn to really trust what she was receiving or hearing. This is interesting because I have never had to learn and I know that that is not a very helpful answer but I also going to explain it in a way that I hope it is a helpful answer I have always been. Ah someone to speak my mind and to trust everything. I'm receiving and I don't know if you've ever discussed crystal children or indigo children or Rainbow NBA children on this show. Before those are just labels and terms that are given to people who are born highly sensitive and with certain abilities and an gifts and all that but when I read about being indigo that is me like as a child I could not keep my mouth shut. I am an even as a young adult. Mike why do I always have to speak up. Why do I always have to share something? Why do I like? Why can't I just let it be anything that came through me? I trusted it with such certainty that I actually had to tell someone always like always. It's it is who I am to my core now the thing is is as we are born in environments. That sometimes will keep quiet for a little bit but ultimately the our parents are our greatest teachers and that can sting a little bit. I fully understand and can hold space for that and give you love for that. If you are like my parents were terrible to me or I come from a really really unhealthy like situation with my parents. There's a reason why okay and your parents are your greatest teachers and so growing up like I had a grandmother who I could talk with about all of this but my mom thought it was super weird and didn't really want to hear it. I was born in just just like a sliver shy of the the Bible Belt of Canada. So it's not like it's not like I fit in going to church or anything like I was in a place where I had to really figure out like what is is it that is coming through me. Why am I always different? Why am I always always always like the black sheep or the one who sees things differently or the one who has to to stay something? It was apparent by everyone in the room and me as well. I just have something in me that I always have to share and so the trust best wasn't ever something I had to work on. It was more so for me. How do I deliver it? That was something that I have always had to work on and had Refine as to how do I deliver. What is coming through? Do I like scream. It from the rooftops. Do I go in like share it with everybody. Like how do I deliver this because there was a time in my life that everything that came through was coming through a such passion and such just like fire almost almost and I didn't know what to do with it. I'm like am I an activist and my this my that I don't even know but in terms of the guidance and the messages like even my dreams means like I would have dreams where someone was going to pass away from cancer and then two months later it would happen and they weren't even diagnosed yet so like everything that was coming through. I knew it was always true. But I'm like I don't know what to do with this and it for me. It was never. How do I trust this or not? It was is how do I navigate this. Like what do I even deal with us. And so there was a period of my life. I didn't tell anybody anything and I would get these messages of like this person's going to die. This is is GonNa hurt. This is going to happen. This is going to happen and I just kept them. All within and I learned how to communicate with. I Guess The pinnacle at the time I just call all that Energy Universe to only send me messages that can support those for their highest good and that I don't want to be the one delivering these like really eh hard messages to share. And I don't want to interfere in people's family lives and like without being invited. I got very very clear on my boundaries of if I'm going to have information about someone send them to to me have them come to me and ask me a question so that I can share it. I'm not going to go and Mike tap on people's backs and be like. Hey guess what. I had a dream about this Good luck there. You go so I have always always always. He's trusted because it has been my life since the time that I was young. I've never had to question it ever because it just I. It's so real for me and it is so so I don't even know how to explain it in that. Sometimes I don't even feel like I'm living on earth and that might sound like what like what are you talking about. But there are many times even just in the past year were I have felt like I have one foot in one dimension and one foot in this one and it's more so a struggle as to how to be here fully and and received these messages and do something with them and I know my north note is grounding like. It's something that I've really come here to learn as to how to be on this earth and how to ground in this earth and and just be here that being said I can respect and understand if you have the difficulty trusting because the world has been set up in such a way for you to not trust yourself. You have been told from the time you were little trust. Trust your parents. Trust the doctor. Trust the teacher ask an adult like ask ask ask ask as you grow. It's like okay. Find a mentor. Find Find Inspiration. Finds someone go volunteer somewhere find. Find someone to look up to you. Want to do something you have to find someone who's already done it and then you have to study them and do stuff. I like them. Throw that in the garbage and that's going to take a lot of work within yourself to be like okay. I'm going to undo this. I'm going to undo do this. It's important to have inspiration. Yes of course but know that the inspiration you have is because you're looking at a mirror of yourself. Anything that inspires. You is giving you a remembering of something within you already. It's like if you haven't uncovered your purpose and your gifts in this life in your just kind of like. I don't even know where I'm going. I don't know just start to ask yourself. What do you like? What inspires you? And why and then go from that point and be like okay. Everything I look at that I like is a mirror reflecting back to myself that it's possible if I see someone that is inspiring to me. It's not because I'm supposed to be exactly like them. It's because something within them equality. They have is reminding me that I have that as well. And not only that you have that as well but that your soul is experiencing the highest vibration of you in that moment and you're picking up on that frequency and believing in yourself and then turn away because if you study that person for too long you're gonNA stray farther and farther uh-huh farther and farther and farther away from yourself and farther from that trust that you need to have within yourself and as those messages are coming through the line four for you. They're designed for you for you to pick up no one else soon as you connect into. Okay I'm inspired by that. I like that I know I have to work on NAT This is something that's me. That's something that's me and then connect back into yourself and be like I'm just GonNa commit to me right now. I have These random puzzle pieces of things that I've collected and like and now I'm going to ask for that guidance and commit to these messages that are coming through the line. Maybe that means doing line activation two times a day and then getting your journal out or getting your voice note recorder out and just talking and just writing and some people are like why only get one word only get a feeling. I only get this. I only got that. That's a clue. Be grateful for every single thing that comes through. Because that's seclude. If you get a word that says something like move forward or or or an idea of be still there you go. There's the action to take be still. It's not time to the forward be still continued to ask questions. Continue to learn and you can begin to trust yourself by taking action on these messages that you received through through the line or using a journal through the day and writing things down or your notepad in your phone like gopher awoke whatever thoughts come to your mind just write them down. Just start tracking tracking these these messages. That are coming through start tracking them even if you think. Oh that just came from my mind. It's not important. Read Down Anyway and then when you start taking action on these things that are coming through and you start to notice subtle and then bigger and bigger and bigger changes in your life. You begin to trust yourself and you're like wow. I did all of that because I was taking action on the messages. That are coming through four me not because a mentor told me to do it. Not because someone else told me to do because I receive that guidance and I took that action and now I can take ownership over everything I've created because I did it because I trusted myself. Ooh Ooh a thank you be you were talking about droplets earlier in this episode that we receive that the Told you about the water drops that we receive in the more we listen to those little subtle droplets a the less thirsty the more the more satisfied we become come along our journey in verses being so thirsty and just leaning more what you did say though is like it can be so subtle insurgency. It's interesting I think that's so important that you said to write it down and to actually take action on that is huge and take action for yourself. Herself is extremely relevant when it comes to not only trusting your intuition also up holding promises you continuously remake to yourself. That's one way where we can develop confidence on a human psychological level Aka Trust Ourselves Aka. We have the confidence entrusting ourselves that we can pretty much accomplish anything because we've been able to prove it over and over again whereas it we make a promise to ourselves that we don't keep a lot of inner battles begin to come in so the little droplets subtle droplets. Come in and to no matter if you think it is just a thought or an actual actual delivered message. I think that's so important to read down in to take action for yourself for yourself. That's a huge piece more yourself that trust strengthened and and that trust is has always been there but just strengthens in your human mind as well and some people will wonder what's the difference between my mind and the messages that are coming through the line that I'm receiving and I've always said does it matter because your physical body and an energetic body you're living in harmony any with this energy so does it matter if it's come from your mind or if you received this message most likely it's come from the from the line and you're picking it up up but how you can determine is it the messages through the line are always for your highest good. They're always always always always highest good. That doesn't mean that they won't won't push you out of your comfort zone. That doesn't mean that they won't ask you to do something that you haven't done before or that might make you feel a little along comfortable. But they'll always give you some kind of relief some kind of like right. That is what I need. Oh that is what I need. Maybe I don't want to do it but that is what I need need. I did a reading for someone one time. Actually this happens all the time but I did a reading for someone. This came is just an an and idea that I'm remembering right. Our A story that I'm remembering the whole reading was about this woman. Reorganizing her life and Nick reorganizing her time her finances everything and it came down to like. She felt really dark about about so many commitments in her life so she watched a lot of TV of violent shows and like cop shows and stuff. She ate food food that didn't support her body and she felt like like got issues because she just felt that like that heavy energy all the time but they a focused in the reading. They focused on her closet. And the Pinnacle always focus on closets and fridges. And it's just so interesting to me because they're like. How do you feel when you go into to your closet? And she's like I don't feel good at all and they're like how do you feel like do you feel like you're close. Make you feel like the highest version of yourself. Do you feel like you're represented in there. And they kept saying you need to organize you need to organize. You need to pick things up off your floor. Like the whole reading. was that at the end. She was just laughing and she's like everyday three day this whole week because I read for her on like a Thursday or Friday schlick every single day everytime again my car. I got the message of go by the book tidying up by that Marie Condo Book. Go Buy that book by that book. And she's like. I don't know why of being told to buy that book. I don't even watch her show. Like why do I keep wanting to buy that book. And then she does is reading. It's like tidy up. Organize your life and not like just helps propel the the steps going forward and this happens. All the time and readings meetings were people are like I've received that guidance but I didn't take it because I thought like why would I do that. It's developing trust in those messages. That may not that seems ignificant but they are a water droplet like all of them their water droplets. I love that. Listen to the water droplets. This is from e PROC fits in she asks. How do you know when you're in the Akasha records? Should there be a noticeable shift. I think that's such a good question and it is such a question and I'm hesitant to answer it because again when you compare yourself and your experience to somebody else's your straying away from from yourself so please trust with what is within yourself and the feeling that you feel when you go into the records are you doubting yourself so so much that. You're not able to experience what you're feeling. I mean in the book that I've read. It's recommended that you open the records every single day for six weeks and just sit there. You're and don't expect anything to come. Just sit there sit there for like twenty minutes or something. Just sit there and experience what it is to to feel that I didn't do that. Is Open them and started right away. And that's not necessarily what you're gonNA do or maybe you're gonNA start right away. Maybe you're GONNA sit there you're gonNA get used to it but treat it like a practice us not something. You're a master at right away that being said I will answer the question. But I don't want you to compare yourself to me because I incarnated or needed in this life to work with the records of course it had a different experience that Every time I enter I my third eye as soon as as I sit down with a client. It like starts pulsing so so so much. Like it's just vibrating pulsing and then while I say. Say the prayer. I'm sorry you heard my little elephant. There she's three and she runs around and so that probably picked up. It was so so so when I say the prayer my crown of my head begins to tingle a lot and then I get a tingling down the my spine and then by the time the records are open. I have fully fully elevated into a different frequency. I'm an different dimension. I'm present in this one in that I can feel my body. I can open my eyes and look around. I like I'm still here but I'm somewhere else as well. And it is a very very noticeable noticeable support shift for me when I told this to Linda how who channel the pathway prayer and that's what I use for now she said to me I said like is the same for you and she said. Do you think that people go up to Michael Jordan and ask. Is this how it feels to play basketball. Am I going to feel the same way. She's like you can't you can't compare she's like Ashley you've been born with a gift but everybody has the gift and so you cannot compare and she wouldn't tell me she's like I'm not gonNa tell you what it feels like when I'm in the records you're GonNa compare yourself to me so I tell you this with caution caution in that do not compare yourself to me and I know I can't control that but please please know that that's my experience. And you are designed to have in your own experience yet. I one thousand percent. I'm so glad that you said that because people do always compare but every person's inner voice every person's droplets every person's experience with everything in this is so different and so two not compare with honestly anything also. I love that you said when a new access records are you doubting yourself so much that you're not allowing yourself to just experience I think that's so crucial for all of us to really understand understand. Is You know what where's doubt coming from when we start to experience and then just shift that doubt to all right. I'm GONNA experience whatever I'm experiencing our now I'm not GonNa try to force anything thing or making thing happened. This is just this. Is the experience right now. In this is me receiving it in my own way and there might be a lot of fears wrapped up into what is going to come through and not is completely understandable. And that's why our program how to read the Akasha Records with the pinnacle comes uh-huh with our clear. The line released fear workshop as a prerequisite so that you can work through any fears that you might have have and begin to just unravel that because a lot of people will start doing. This work restart working with records. Like I feel nothing I feel nothing. Nothing's coming through this missile. What are you afraid of? Are you afraid to see yourself because when you open your own records you're just learning about yourself on on a deeper level. So what are you afraid of learning about like. What's what is what is preventing you from allowing yourself to surrender and usually then when they go through that Really sphere workshop. They discover the fears that they have and they're most likely from past lives like there will be something wrapped up there and they'll work through that and men will enter the records and be like. Okay now I have the clarity. Because I'm not coming in with all of this fear and all this tension of like what am I gonNA find out. What am I going to find out? What am I gonNA find out which you have to be open so that's important to note as well and love yourself wherever you are just like? It's a journey. It's a ride. You're not supposed to be perfect at all if we were perfect. We wouldn't be human so I just love your cell for it was perfect anyway. This is a good question then from May Sunshine Exit Piggyback Off. That she asks is cautious. Record something you have to work up to in order to access VAT that is individual for everybody as I shared my experience. Even though I didn't didn't think I was working up to it. I was because everything is divinely timed and I did an enormous S. amount of inner work before I started working with the records so very briefly. I think I told some of this story on the first I episodes. I won't really tell it now but I had a job got pregnant lost. My job was pregnant without a job. Had A baby through that time of having like being pregnant stopped drinking of course and really changed my focus on so many things so then my friendship circle the change in the way that I spent my time changed my boundaries got higher. I really got in tune with my body and my energy that I have this baby which I've learned learned just when you bring a child into the world your energetic frequency shifts so much and sometimes your physical body has a difficult time catching up to that which can be given the human level of postpartum anxiety or depression and I experienced that so I did all of that inner work to move through that. By the time I got to the records I had done like Mount Everest amount of inner work all within the span of two years so I was already so close and yet now I look back at. I'm like wow. I've done mount for three times cents but I was so much edged closer at that point to my authentic self into my voice that I was ready to enter the records. It is the intention and and level of awareness that you have of yourself and the why behind what are you. Why are you doing it? Everybody is going to come at this. At a different journey a different angle will a different like a different story. But if you don't feel like you're open enough and you can't surrender and you can't go and released and you have. All these distractions wins and all of this tied up with it. Yeah you'll most likely have a bit of a harder time but that's okay because you can work with it and work through it as I said it's a practice and it's also like then start with clearing the line and understanding where all these distractions are and where you're putting your energy the and start trusting how to receive these subtle droplets of water. That are coming through the line so that you understand just what all of this is like like that whole our workshop. The four workshops hopes of clear the line program essentially teach you how to live in the line. They build off one another and by the end you understand like living in the lion this is a lifestyle and the work that comes with that and that will support you also working with the Akasha records. If that's what you're interested in who that's amazing uh-huh I think that a lot of people are convinced that yeah maybe accessing. This line is not so difficult after all there is a it's possible for everybody and not only is it possible but it will be extremely helpful longer. Journeys This person asked you how her daily life so when I ask you know any kids for Actually v Patent Ten twenty two asks how her daily life looks like living in the line. I Love Ashley. She's my absolute faith. Thanks fee patent. I know who that is because we we said Indiana. That's up to living in the line for ne- Well my daily life. I guess I can tell you I'll do like like a regular will may work. Days are different than my non work days. So Ben my husband and I run our business align within from from our home and we have a three year old daughter who is highly sensitive Very very gifted but with everything in the world there's polarity and with those gifts comes a lot of fears and right now she's navigating through ton of fears and just a lot of stuff and so currently it's winter when I wake up whenever she wakes up sometimes that seven. Sometimes that's eight sometimes. That's eight thirty. We wake up and we play and have breakfast. If I have readings I will do my readings if I don't bend is usually working or we're going to do something as a family and we'll just hang out. We'll go right now. She's she's really afraid of the winds. Were not really going out that much. But when she's not we'll go out for a walk or go to a park or a coffee shop we have really slow days like it through the day. I'm just taking care of her. And if anything a child really supports you in being present because she demands my full on attention and then we Kinda Shuffler back and forth through the day. I'll do some work in the afternoon or Ben will do some work in the afternoon and then and we'll have dinner together and then we'll put her to sleep and in the evening when I get most of my work done like I'll record a podcast episode or I'll work on and something that we have coming up and I'll write a book because we write a book write the book we just Announced so we have a book coming out Or I have a book coming out But I guess in terms of living in the line. I'm just so so committed to the messages is that I receive that I will change my mind an instant I will flow with whatever comes through like a really really well I very high boundaries of my time and my energy. I've really only do what I WANNA do. And I know that that might sound like a luxury. But it's how I've built my life and how we've we've worked hard to get to this point where we just do what we WANNA do. And that's always been one of my like lines it's like I want the freedom to do what I want to do. I go for walks at least once a day and often. I opened the records. While I'm on my walk and I just ask for guidance and follow. What comes through Yeah I think that though living in the line is just receiving the messages come writing them down taking action on them pushing myself for growth. I live with such an elevated awareness of my existence as myself as the face of this business as a parent as a wife. I'm very very very very highly highly aware of off my existence and the messages coming through the line and I guess also just that my my frequency will not be received by everybody. And that's okay and I am following what I am given. And I'm trusting in that and I'm also trusting and knowing that those who are in a match of this frequency will receive it and those who are not won't don't and I'm completely neutral in that and I've made such peace with it and enter every interaction I have with love and the highest intention that I can bring. That's beautiful. I think that that piece with that frequency is a message for all to know that as long as you are being true due to those droplets those living in the line for you and for your family for whatever is true for you And so that lends you with whatever frequency it is that is perfect as beautiful as and to be okay that not everybody. Might you know resume with it. Might even just being there not resonating with it now but who knows in the future. I think that this is perfect to ask southern wildflowers. Ask when's the new book coming out in January. Twenty twenty two twenty twenty two the. Yeah at first I was like wow. That's a really long time away and then I'm like no that's perfect affect. I signed the contract at three thirty three. PM On January twenty second of twenty twenty SOS like it's perfect but it's coming out January twenty twenty two grads. That's amazing and it does take a lot of time for books to release it dies. Yes that I. I have a hunch that the new prayer will be in it like I feel worse. I just have that hunch. Yeah I have that knowing just getting and then how would you advise the year on magic listeners. To create their own magic and it will probably be different than what you said before. Yeah I don't I don't remember what I said before I love when that happens. Yeah I just advise you to create your on magic by receiving those messages through the line and knowing that there for you and that your purpose on this planet is exactly what we need we every a person needs you to show up as your authentic self which is your magic and to just be you like. It's it's so so important in a world we're told old to look for other people to find someone else to see it to believe it. Just follow those messages through the line be you yes find inspiration But really really trust that. You're here on purpose and you don't need someone else to give you that permission or give you that belief to do it you. You're here for a reason.

In the Dirt 19: Tire Volume, Vaccinations and Road Trips

"Tom hello and welcome to in the dirt. Gravel road podcast. I'm your host. Craig dalton. I'll be joined shortly by co host. Randall jacobs every other week. We dive into the sport of gravel. Cycling nuance new equipment. New events coming down the pipeline and how the sport is fitting into our lives in the dirt is supported by listeners. Like you simply visit by me. A coffee dot com slash the gravel. Ride to. Show your support for everything we do. If you're interested in connecting with randall awry or other members of the gravel cycling community. Please consider joining the ridership of free global cycling community available at www dot the ridership dot com for now. Let's dive right into my conversation with randall randall. Welcome to the show. Always a pleasure to be with you craig or were you my friend. I'm doing good at this point. I think you could almost say craig. Welcome to the show. Yeah you're still hosting vastly more often than i am so my game here. Speaking of upping your game. You've transported yourself yet again since our last broadcasts You were in utah. I am back in san francisco staying in the marina for the month. I fortunate to have some friends who are out of town. And just said you're the keys the apartment so i have been road tripping and how sitting in an otherwise taking advantage of a of a very flexible situation over these months which has been great. Yeah was called on your way back from utah. I did see you in palm desert california moos nice for an hour for coffee and a little conversation yet he s lush joan watching your son go down slip and slide the bunch of other kids in palm desert. That may be interesting to solve our listeners. I think where are you headed. Next was even more interesting. Is that before or after you headed to the grand canyon. That was after. So i had been in southern utah for a couple of weeks. Potting with A couple of friends and actually my youngest sister which was great so we hit up bryson's ion and a few different parks in that area lot of trail running a hiking. And a lotta just being outside but a fire pit along sitting around sitting outside around firepit making things in the walk really lovely time and a reminder of what life was like before pandemic two of my friends have been vaccinated in the rest of us got tested in so we did it in his safe ways. We could be said. It's so nice to have some of that normalisation creeping back into our lives. I feel the same thing. There's just been some casualness to my interactions with people. That wasn't present a month ago prior to me getting the first shot of the vaccination anyway. Yeah and i just got my first shot today. Which i'm very pleased about in. It's no panacea. The effectiveness with new variants is still being tested in his shown to be a little bit lower or potentially quite a bit less effective but new variants. And then there's still research to be done on how long it lasts but with boosters and with more people having some degree of immunity does seem like the worst is behind us which is such relief plus the risk of serious illness is significantly less with these vaccines too so strongly encourage everybody to take advantage as its opening up to the full population and after this is published. Tomorrow i'm on my way for my second shot extradited about that very cool very cool actually made it. You actually made it into the grand canyon. Did you not i did after i left my group of friends and my younger sister. They're drove down to the south rim and camped out and then woke up next morning at a lovely breakfast and coffee on the rim and then ran down the river really nice way to spend a day got back up at about one o'clock one thirty then had a beverage for the friend in flagstaff and then continue onto sedona. Mice is a three thousand foot. Drop off the edge. I think it's forty eight then a hell of a day getting back out. Yeah i was more beat than i was expecting to be but granted it was a bit brazen of me to do a grand canyon. Run relatively off the couch. I haven't been training much at all of been using this time to recover overall in hurting toward the end of it. But it's something. I've been wanting to do for some time and was really a a day. Well spent. Sam is one time. I went down there. I remember the way out. It was like it was all good until it wasn't too slow. Got another fifteen hundred feet the hike outta here. Yeah yeah it was. It was stunning. Though i just went didn't out in back on the southbound trail for those in the know or who are curious is also you can do rim to rim. I didn't do that. People do that to rim and a day. that's pretty ambitious can also go up the angels landing trail. I believe which is a bigger loop which i didn't tackle because it was another seven miles of flats and i didn't need that okay. Hey did you know that the arizona trail race the azt. There's the three fifty in the seven fifty and the seven fifty involves you hiking. The grand canyon rimmed rim with your bike on. Your back of your tires are not allowed to touch the ground. The you can't ride in that park as you probably saw said to complete the arizona. Trail seven fifty. You have to hike down and out the other side along. It sounds awful and even if you were allowed to ride your bike down it would probably be a bad idea at least not without a proper dual suspension mountain bike with nabis. Which case you have damage more bike to carry up all the stuff that is completely unreadable. Yeah for the listener. There are few really good documentaries. I've seen on net flicks. I believe maybe amazon prime about the t three fifty in the seven fifty really cool definitely not gravel bike terrain. It's purportedly a very difficult rocky route. In fact many people find it just too rough to even attempt but it's one of these bike packing races. That has a grand dip hard day and just go off and a finnish days and weeks apart from one another okay. So people are stretching it out over a period of time enjoying the scenery. It's not like a twenty four hour slog or something like that where people are just knocking out. Three hundred florida miles. Nego- it's longer than that but people it's definitely raced said i think every year there's people who are doing it as dare i say tourists but it's probably not the right word but they're definitely going for it and there's definitely an f. k t for the act three fifty and the seven fifty that people are gunning for periodically beast mode. That's a lot of rieck. Move more than i have the stomach floor at the moment exactly so speaking of riding and racing. I actually had a good time linked both saturday and sunday. I saw the return of proper gravel racing and while it may be a little too soon for me to donna number both physically and really just where i'm at in terms of the pandemic there was really cool to see my buddy sam aims race. The rock cobbler going outside of bakersfield california. The race has been around a number of years. He's been a guest on the podcast. I was excited to see they were sponsored by bianchi this year so getting a little bit more resources behind the event sam's known for the quirkiness of his events the first year i think had riders. Ride through someone's house as part of the core which is crazy so i waited with bated breath the see was going to be the shenanigan of the year and the one thing i saw courtesy of our friends pure gravel who were filming a lot of it was they had a ball. Pit and i can say from the footage. I saw unequivocally if you're ever presented with a ball pit in a gravel race do not try to ride it. I think one hundred percent of the people. I saw crashed and some crashed heavily. How do you possess moped. I suppose there's like a zone. Where if it's not deep enough. It's really bad. But if it's deep enough it's you're still gonna crash but it'll be delightful. Yeah i think it was not deep enough for the way that people were grimacing when they cheese but anyway the guys again follow here. Gravel ravel on instagram. They've got some footage of that race. I think people get a kick out of and another account on. Instagram started following with southeast gravel. And there was an event called greenwood gravel grindr which had some hitters out in it out on the east coast and it was fun. They had a motorcycle out there capturing footage so it reminded me of maybe south in two thousand nineteen where i was just able to sit as an armchair quarterback and watch athletes descript through these gravel courses. Which was fun again. We're as we're talking about a few minutes ago. Just this sort of sensor of a return to normalcy are beginning to be there and that's not a lot of fun to see excellent. Yeah i have a couple of events that i'm looking at for the late spring early summer on the east coast and it does feel like these things can be pulled off safely now granted with a lot of good protocol and people adhering to it. Yeah i think when you subtract out maybe the food and beverages afterwards or or alternate how they're delivered You really do have the opportunity if riders are being safe than i think you can pull these things off. Yeah i think the biggest thing is out of that. I can think of. Is you can stagger the start. So people aren't all grouped together but really having rule around drafting and things like that. It's actually in that draft. That is also the sweet spot for any sort of favor coming out of one's mouth and so it's a good place to get a good dose of covid. You're drafting somebody. That's the trickiest thing for me. Because as when i'm dying late in a race if i see a wheel to follow of definitely going to hop on it. Yeah yeah. It definitely needs to be an explicit rule that stated that everyone agrees to. I think so. For event organizers out there something to consider then another event popped onto my radar that i thought the listener might be interested in in trinidad colorado lifetime. Who's the owner of crusher in the tushar unbound gravel formerly dirty kanza as started. A new event called the rad dirt. Fest and it's part running festival part gravel festival. Longtime listeners may be familiar with trinidad colorado. Because i had an interview back in twenty nineteen with ron della rocca who reached out to me and said i really wanna make this region of colorado which is in the the very southern tip very close to new mexico a gravel destination. Because we've got phenomenal roads. We've got some nice mountain passes and it's just a perfect place for grabble racing so it was interesting reached out to juan and asked had been in contact with the lifetime team and he said he had interesting that they're picking yet another kinda mountain community to impact and hopefully in a very positive way for a region that doesn't have much going on now that certain industries left the region It's screen time in the gravel events world. Yes the blossoming of gravel again. Once again i mean hopefully this tail end of the year is. We're hoping twenty twenty would be where gravel events were plentiful the investment an organization levels continue to increase and improve and people. Were just out there. Having a blast and Ties into the other end of the gravel events spectrum. Now that we're gonna chat about today which is impromptu gatherings of people and being able to facilitate that more effectively. Yeah yeah exactly speaking of impromptu gatherings yet a bit of an adventure last week on right at a great adventure a so talk about quirky events. So there's the the super pro series here in california which my good friend isaac has done in the past and a has volunteered for and so he had all the beta on the route that we did in the plano chills which is not a very well known area of california but it is stunningly beautiful. And beyond that's halfway between l. a. And san francisco off the five so off the five kind of and then if you go west of there on the other side is hollister panos road. That goes through in. It's a pockmarked paper. Lots of potholes. I was fine. Barnstorming it in my prettiest so Really stunning area. And we got there before everything had dried out so he had these beautiful hughes of different greens and wildflowers. Out and then some brown hills in the distance and a good amount of elevation think the highest point is three thousand plus hello steep like brutally steepen section spoke up and down on the got worked and it was a just a really delightful time. Weather couldn't have been better and we stayed at the mercy hot springs which is a stunning little sanctuary in the middle of this desert area. Where there is the only grove of trees for some distance and is filled with birds. That wake you up in the morning and wake up to a beautiful sunrise. Really fantastic How would you characterize the dirk. As compared to marin county marin county the actual trails themselves are way. More fun to ride. I would say what's unique about being out. There is the vistas in the beauty of the terrain. In the fact that you can be so remote so close to a major metropolitan area if it was just gorgeous for that and being able to do a monster lupin to see the whole ridge. Line that you're going to tackle as you're riding. Was it double-track slash fire rotary on single track. Mostly double track in some of was properly funded technical. I tend to like the faster flow e mix double-track single-track stuff that we have here in the bay but this was rewarding in a different way. This was a cover lots of ground. Slogging away up a big hill. Get beautiful view rewarding ride so out of intellectual curiosity. If you're living in that area do you think your wheel set would be different than it normally is and for normal. I i always have in my mind that you're six fifty by forty seven guy. Yeah actually no. I wouldn't run anymore. And i wouldn't run any less and marine. I would run more and in fact in bull. Keep that mostly under wraps. But i do have some plans for something that would allow for a little bit more the future. Y'all's find it interesting. Everybody knows i'm usually in that. Six fifty by forty seven. Although i'm down to forty three's right now camp and i wonder if i went somewhere with a little less technical terrain whether i would opt for something narrower as plenty of riders. Do it actually ties into another thing. We're going to discuss today. Which is this article from rene You had on the podcast before that was shared in the ridership talking about whether water tires are slower or faster and its findings suggest that tire construction is a major determinant. They're not tire volume. And so there's really no upside to going with those six fifty four threes but there is the downside in that you don't have all that extra volume to take the shock away so i would. I'd be sticking with minimum six fifty five forty seven for the sort of stuff we i am interested. What how you find those though. Yeah i'll let you know. It's i'm just switching over to them again on this journey to test the limits and everything in between he's got a seven hundred by thirty two slick setup but adorable tire from panna racer gravel king plus and then grabble king s k six fifty by forty three right now that the setup on the disclose in a very excited about this. I was invited to become a panel racer ambassador for the year awesome. That's great and it's a little bit like coming home. It's fun because the panna racer gravel king s k on my original open. Six fifty by forty eight was the tire on the bike set-up. That really opened my eyes to white gravel could be an mean and i don't think i'd swap that tire for two years. In fact i only stopped running at when i got my open simply because w w t be. Was the tire offering that you guys had to offer on the thesis. The it's fun coming full circle and seeing if these tires were everything that i remembered them to be. And as i said. I've set up these super narrow road tires supernet twenty say super narrow at thirty two millimeters. But i've slept them up. And i've been trying to ride a little bit of dirt on them just a again just to test limits and also encourage myself to choose different routes get further north into marin before i hit the dirt and try some new stuff. I do find it. Remarkable how capable that setup can be on hard pack britain around here on the peninsula. This sweeney ridge loop that has a section of single track going up and some beat up broken down paved sections coming down and between seven hundred thirty setup on our wide rims and then having the dropper post so i can really take the edge off by using a bit of body english letting the bike dance underneath me. It's remarkable how fast that stuff can be hit. Especially if you. I think i have the added advantage of knowing that i can replace the rim cheaply enough but it's i i might take more risks than most but nonetheless. Yeah i was riding. I was in japan for the last weekend. I was riding it on some dirt. Those thirty two's and i will say it was definitely in my head. Descending had no problem whatsoever climbing as it was flowing felt good. I didn't feel like i was getting too crazy in the corners. But as i started pointing downhill i really found myself backing it off. And that's where the big tire volumes. You just don't have to think about it. I think that's what i love about running big. It'll get up the hills no problem but when you're going down the hills you can just hit more stuff and i wanna come back to this article that i was brought up a moment ago because it's relevant this conversation it's talking about essentially they're making the argument that with a a well constructed which means higher materials generally what you mean aftermarket with tire segment of her others who make premium tires as well with similar construction incidentally in their case by panera. You're not losing out on rolling resistance. And in fact there was a very interesting phenomenon that they found here which was They're looking at tire pressure. And everybody's favorite subject. Yeah and i. This is actually something that it makes sense to me. Having read it. But i definitely didn't into it it i. I want to use his words here. So he's looking at optimal tire pressure. And what they found was that having a lower pressure can have low rolling resistance or relatively high efficiency. Having higher pressure can have a relatively high efficiency but is a middle pressure where it's actually the worst of both worlds and the mechanism that they suggest is this in. This is a quote is the tires are pumped harder. Suspension losses caused by vibrations increase more than the historic losses caused by deformation of the tire. Because those those go down as a result the total combined resistance goes up at first so you can either minimize suspension losses low pressure or hysteric losses with high pressure but the compromise means that both suspension in historic losses are relatively high. And you go slower than you would at either end of the spectrum which for me is a licensed to continue running low pressure which is gonna do anyways yet. It's fascinating and i will link to my conversation with the author. Yana from rene our cycles. And i encourage everybody to check out his blog on air stockholm and a link to the conversation. The ridership and you'll be able to find your way to these blog posts but it was fascinating. And as you and i were talking about offline like. I'm not totally sure. I've got a crappy gauge on my pump relatively crappy l. say and it's just consistent like it's crappy across every time. I pump up the tire. So i know what i think i know but i'm not exactly sure where matt i do a little bit by feel and a little bit by the gauge. But i'm concerned that i may end up in the middle zone because i think that's the easiest place to be. It's pretty easy to pop your tire up to the maximum recommended to bless pressure. And know that you're too high on the pressure The too low side is maybe something. That's we fear hitting because there are realistic concerns right of going too low on the tire pressure. You're going to bottom out. You might damage rim how to avoid being in the middle for your individual weight and setup is tricky and it's probably going to involve a little bit of personal trial and error and maybe us all investing a little bit better quality tire gauge. Yeah it it's. The tire gauges the come on the vast majority of our pretty rubbish in their good from a relative perspective measuring from one day to the next and in comparing those pressures so the pressure you like stick with it but not as an absolute measure of accuracy and so i'll probably be investing in the same though at the same time. There's still that element of knowing how i ride. How things feel and that limits of where. I can tell that i'm close to bottoming out a rim on the train them running and that tends to be one of my gauges because i ride pretty hard so that limits go low end of the pressure. I can use especially bit of the drama posts in a bit of body. English helps to mitigate that to some degree but at the same time one bad line can be a bad day with a cracked carbon rib. Yeah i think my experience on the mountain bike has definitely. it's tomac time and time again. Like experiments on the lower side of the spectrum not the higher side of the spectrum. You don't wanna pogo. Stick exactly fascinating stuff as always and as we know people will geek out over tires entire pressure all day long. The other that was cool. I wanted to highlight his. You've been getting together with that. Select group of people via the ridership and one of the things we have always talked about in the ridership is once for out of this pandemic. How do we facilitate getting people together and think about tools to make that coordination easier and better already. We're seeing this behavior. Just emerge us. Were currently running the form on slack. So in slack you can have direct messages with. I think up to eight people is that right. Yeah so in this case one person suggested it in another person chimed in with a route and then three more people who were interested. So the hells yeah. And i think from there went to a dam or maybe it started in direct message thread and these are people who i had met. One was a good friend to others. I've actually met through thesis. They were early thesis riders and then the fourth was a friend of theirs and we'd only ever interacted as a group after the form and then describe him together and start planning the camping arrangements. Who's bringing what all that stuff and just being able to do it. A synchronous sleep but quickly in this sort of format and invite people end up. Share materials routes and campsites and so on on the flight was a experience and so there are some things that we could probably do to enhance it further and will be experimenting with some plug ins and so on in slack but it was really very encouraging. It's it's the second or third time that have had this sort of thing come together. And we're seeing other people do it as well other people in the regional channel saying. Hey i just got back needed. Does anyone wanna plan a ride for later in the month this thing. Yeah that's what it's here for. Not too overly plug the ridership but everybody listening invited. It's a free forum to connect with other riders. And as randall said were actively listening to everybody in the forum and trying to build great things that are going to enhance your cycling experience online tools for the facilitation of offline connection inexperience and everyone gets a free ride with. Gps account as well. Yeah absolutely. i think that's a good time for us to call it quits for this week. Good to reconnect and now that you're in the bay area before you leave again. We're going to get for a ride together. Yeah i will see you on friday right on. That's it for this week's episode of in the dirt from the gravel ride podcast.

"Welcome to the no Spin News Tuesday September tenth. Two thousand eighteen fight for your freedom okay so couple of things today. John Bolton the ambassador former for investment. UN fired as national security adviser was not nice. Donald Trump said quote inform John Baldwin last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of us others in the administration therefore I asked John His resignation she's giving me point. Thank John Very much for his service. Be naming a new national security adviser next week so all all right look John Bone Zohar always has been not subtle man. You knew what you were getting hired him. president trump obviously. Ashley doesn't really like him. Anymore is could have been done in a nice way. I think but I don't know I'm not privy to what goes was on site. All I know is that bolted as a hard liner and he's not there anymore. Now the economy very interesting interesting governor comes out and says hey the median income in America for households the highest ever it's sixty three thousand one seventy nine two thousand eighteen sixty three thousand one hundred seventy in seventeen sixty. He won three seventy two but with inflation. It's pretty much the same wherever that's a pretty decent median income when you consider that many the American households are headed by people with no education at all. That's the Keita Making Money America's education so that should be good news but it won't be because the anti-trump people spend a negative now. The poverty rates eleven point eight percent on two thousand eight two thousand fifteen. It was thirteen point five percent so that's you know a fairly significant as you know black black unemployment Hispanic unemployment lowest levels ever and in two thousand eight hundred eighty eight point five percent of Americans did not have health health insurance. That's up from seven point nine percent in two thousand seventeen. Primarily people don't have health insurance. Paul two categories those who don't seek it for whatever reason they don't want it and those who are too poor to afford eight point five percent not a terrible number but health insurance this is paramount to your survival my survival so the economy continues to be pretty strong in America. That's a fair assessment so on October third. It's bring Your Bible School Day trying to get some kind of spiritualism back into the conversation with students in America. We'll be right back after the spot. If you are over the age of fifty I have an important message for you.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Second Corinthians five seven for we live by faith not by sight so I want to encourage occurred you to live out your faith on bring Your Bible to school day and share God's love with friends. You're not alone. I went an excellent message immediately. The twitter mob which we talked talked about yesterday at tax drew brees and try to harm him because that video was put out by the focus for the family organization they sh- now focus the families that traditional Christian group does not believe in gay marriage or gay adoption so they are according to the twitter Burma haters and therefore drew brees should be condemned for even helping them with anything now Mr Breeze that look. I didn't even know what focus on the family's policies are. They asked me to do this and I did it and simply a one shot about the Bible now worthy is that's all and that's true. Okay so what we have again is another example of the twitter twitter mob trying to harm an individual a good man because they don't agree with them.

Jim boston garden. I don't know the short cab dashboard. Confessional feel like i am. But i don't oh wait hold on Is it the people who say. That's not the verve young radicals darcy's guy or something like that. What is it goo goo dolls is going to. What did i say. didn't i say use you. Honestly you said all of them but that one. What was your first one. You said all it's like you said all holidays blossoms. Yeah you sit and that's what you started when that's also g. Yeah she involved. That's that was so the goo goo dolls. Ecstasy is out. You need made as bag loonie Go kick fell in love your guest tool even just even just in the beginning. Well i heard the riff then. The music came in and i knew it was somebody like sadder which are like someone who's been through more. I don't know they've been who's lived more lifetimes. No no. I don't mind we're gonna know as a family a community we're about to learn. I feel like careful how you word this. I'm like in those like shitty and it's gonna come back around. Don't worry but those shitty like phone games like candy crush or whatever and they're like you get to open chest and then that's what keeps you the the dopamine shot. Yes that's that. Feeling is what i get when i open our e mail in box and pailler's have written so many letters on so many different things. One of them were going to do today by both of them actually going to do today and then i was listening to a song that at this point. We've heard man i dunno. It can't be fifty two times a year. We've done two years at one hundred and four. We're coming up on a third which would put us at like one hundred and fifty six so somewhere between one hundred four to one hundred and fifty six times at least yeah. I've heard the pen pals. We've also react a lot. Let's go close to two hundred times. I've probably pinna part of the show where we've heard that song. Yeah it says right there. If you wanna be my friend you'd better go and get a pen or keyboard yup and so like that's the deal if you're a penny pallor and you've written us awesome. If you haven't come on write us. I know this is the new approach. We're very aggressive now with our listeners. Right us you write us. But i also mean it i meant also i think people so good i love it. I love it too and i i do want to say this because we have gotten over the close to three years which seems insane to say that mitt in the close to three years. We've gotten so many snail mail letters packages gifts things that people made. Can't that again. We have gotten so many Dm's on twitter on instagram. We've gotten so many e mails to The pen pals prodigy ma dot com and. I know that there's a lot of people who took the time and wrote stuff and it it there is. We have so many letters. And i know that dana keep giving us more letters because it. It truly does help us as we talk about yet. There are a lot of letters that hit us the right way to use it for so long and i know that sounds crazy daniel. I go through these letters. We've read these letters and there's some that someone wrote maybe let's say five minutes ago we might use it. We might use one from two years ago or have them or you might from two years ago. That shows up on the stereo show. Yes so i would say if you're sitting there and and believe i know like sitting down to go i'm gonna write a letter like It's a thing it's some of the letters we've used have not even been more than four sentences literally. You could write what the for example. I mean we have used. This letter was a little bit longer. But it could've just said what do you think of time travel. That's a letter right now. Do we prefer that you tell us what you think you think. So yes yes how us. And that's the whole community. That's how they identify you and get to know you because of your thoughts or feelings or emotions or whatever opinions on a certain topic and then you guys have all gotten to know us. Because daniel and i have given ours on every single one of those topics so don't be afraid to even if you've heard a topic before we've definitely covered topics multiple times. We've talked about comedy more than once. But for anyone and the reason i started this this Semi speech was because i know a lot of people have written stuff that hasn't been on the show and i want you to know is not out of disrespect. This letter isn't good enough. There's just certain letters that are the right fit the right time and we've got them if you feel like you wrote something and you want to get back in there right it again right to us again or write us a new letter or right as anything if you want to if you have the time and if your hair go for it right something simple right something complex. I will say this. And we've said this since the beginning. I'll it's a super long letter. It's hard to fit it into the show enough time for us to give you the rest. Yes that's it isn't that we don't care about all the things you wrote. It's just about time. Daniel and i have gone on our talking about our favorite sandwich and that letter wasn't even asking us to that. So if you write a paragraph about something we can hit eight paragraphs for to tackling who get very distracted unpack a lot of things. So you know i. I guess what we're trying to save. Thank you guys for always taking the time because it is your pack as we just talk about it and without your letters and your opinions and your thoughts and your feelings and your stories and all the things we wouldn't we wouldn't be doing this we would. We would be doing a show. But i don't think it would be as fun as this so it wouldn't be as involved as is this and interactive this so beggared everyone and if you haven't had your letter read reach back out does try again you. We're idiots or maybe you say version and you haven't heard yet. Don't worry about that either for all. You know yeah. We rented hct. The third week of october hit rory with a cover that we got so long ago. It'll be entrust me. It'll be the perfect time or at least what we think is before we go where we go all one more point for it when people sense of like if we are doing a bunch of the covers and this and that daniel and i also have to try to curate this so that we are spreading out what the show is as we go. Which is why in. October might be win. Covers come back because we know some people sit there and they don't want the same stuff over and over all the time again. And i think we feel that because we feel that. So we don't do it. We feel you guys and we feel our own opinion on it so if you are discouraging you written a letter and it didn't get on. There's a chance we're we're holding onto it but never be afraid to write it again or write something new You could write a lot. We we read them. So that's all. I got sick. Guess what we're chicken but oh you know it. I've heard i honestly. I heard i've heard that one hashtag grow the show. We have not done this in a while. And i wanted to speaking of spreading things out. Here we're gonna hashtag grow the show from no such person which makes me. You don't know how much credence i should give this. I to review five stars come for the and heartfelt advice. Stay because you've joined to colts and are no longer allowed to leave love. The show love the theme song. Love the cookies from three best bakery. I was inspired to buy an eight all in one sitting. That's easy to do. Check it out or easy. Good times is that that's one two three four five six eight words all you have to say to people when you're trying to grow the show check it out. If you like good times review. I may put on the back of a book when i finally riding. Look i know it. Doesn't i know it's not related to that specific product but i'm allowed to take liberty with with that reviewing go. Hey here's a good review of another thing. I did okay. Let's i wanna read one more. Yeah i haven't got ready ecstasy's you need living in the big machine. Now on the advice of another reviewer this is when it works guys. This is when reviews. Start eating reviews like this own tail. I started listening to the first episodes and also listened to the newest episodes when they come out. Who you're eating the pie from both sides. Double-sided sided candle. It is cool that some of the same things are still being used. They're they're watching this like memento air. What yeah they're seeing an an implosion right. We are living in an explosion there. Witnessing it adds and if they do it on time they would finish somewhere between the taxes right. They're gonna come right into tax cuts. Which is the middle of the country south only area not exact middle is it and then they go on to say final sentence. Thank you for sticking with each other and working through pea. That's other people's problems. I think we work through at the inspiration of other people's we work through some of our own. I relate to. I relate to many of the pennies saga saga hashtag grow the show. I just people are still writing these. And i love them and everyone's while i think we used to do it a lot. I mean there's one right here that's just says hashed. The title of the review is five stars tie one is what and it says a podcast for cackling idiots. Yeah love it. Community is growing. It's wrong we have a strong community. Oh there's so many of these could read okay. I love that re Review let us know that you're digging the show. Send us a letter and hang out with us and just a reminder.

And god bless him. It was so early there and also god bless his like neighbors in that building who had to hear him playing guitar singing loudly. Not that it sounds bad but when you're sleeping you know there's no music you're into i love that. He got like see part of what he has helped wrought. Yes yeah hey man that. That song's vibe. Yeah we're just trying to hold up the vibe. Yeah we're trying to follow that vibe going or are you and today i followed it with goodell's some people are gonna like that. Some people won't who are those. You'll mediated job. Grab i trust you dangerous really. I don't really quick and we gotta keep it till like less than a minute size. I go ahead. I started the tiger. What idea so. I watched the first half. I never got to the second half. Oh it's two halves. So i'm halfway to. There's a two parter. It's it's fine for what it is. It tries to. It tries to be jerry springer issue and it's like tiger didn't sign off on it. It's fine you could watch tiger and learn about tiger. It's fascinating but it gets a little trashy. I think it felt that way in the presentation that way in the very opening with the scene from the holding on i was like come on. Do we really. He didn't kill anybody. Yeah but yeah yeah settled down. But why don't we just. We have just did a documentary about his amateur career. And like how exact i was fifteen i forgot i think thinking about also like about his dad and he had the one guy who was the pro and he was like i was friends with their family and i play golf his dad and his dad had a winnebago the course and he was like sleeping with women while tiger was like a kid in playing on the course and it's the guy looks to lakeside camera. It seems so set up. And he's like he's like well like i shouldn't talk about this but then he looks right to this camera right over here which is why is that camera there. He's like he's like handgun like me talking about this and it's like that is and set up and you're like i mean i i don't know i don't know you're going to say hey. Can i interview about something and then the person will go four like what do you. What's the story you're telling what they told people like. Oh we just kind of like gloss over the worst parts of tigers life. Yeah and those people are like i'm in. Yeah well there's one guy they interview and he was like You know i'm not talking about that. He goes. i'm smart enough. Think some stuff you don't talk about now's like you know and i know what you mean. I know what you mean but you sit there and go my relationship with this person. I'm not talking about like. I even felt weird like college or high school girlfriend was like sharing home videos. I was looking for personal. He acted out because that was a safe place for him to goof around. Now you've said you've exposed. I even something he thought was okay for you to cut loose thirty years ago. Yeah yeah gotcha i just. It's a little much. Yeah here we go and say. This is the first time i've ever read read a letter. Where dearden your. Nor which is the wrong. Order is so bold. And like just giant giant font. Dear daniel rory. It is chaika these documents google doc and then copied and pasted it over that. Because i don't even know how to do that on g mail. I hope this letter finds you both happy and healthy. I think we're doing pretty good in those. I wanted to start by Start by thank you for accompanying me through countless long walks car rides an early trips to work over the past year. Thank you for inviting us on those journeys you've brought me so much needed laughs and made many of my days a little better a few years ago you guys read a letter from my sister lauren. And so now. I'm hoping to even the playing field by writing a letter. Myself folks books. I just talked about springer whereas this go. Oh yeah on a more serious note. I wanted to ask your advice about how you handle. Big changes in your lives. I don't. I'm insecure and i bury them that i said that Growing up i was extremely blessed to have two parents who loved me and loved each other very much. I always heard stories of how in love. They were and the cutest tales of their college shenanigans. I idolized their story and dreamed about living that life with my own love in the future. My mom was a kick ass woman who came from nothing but put herself through college and became the first female plant manager at her huge engineering firm. I looked up to her so much in every way. My dad took the role of mr mom and did everything with me and my two sisters while my mom was busy being a feminist hero. Unfortunately my family was given a reality check when my mom was diagnosed with cancer while i was in middle school after a hard fought battle she passed away about four years later. Not a day goes by that. I don't miss her. But i have been able to come to peace with the fact that her time with us is over and i'm forever thankful for the moments i did have with her however i struggle with the fact that now. My dad has begun to date again. I have always been extremely close with my dad. We spent all our time together Traveling to my volleyball games. Hang out on the lake together and cooking dinners. My dad has always will always be my best friend role model and the first person. I want to tell good news to now that i'm in college. I know that it's great for him to have someone that he can spend time with while. I'm away but it's so hard to accept someone new into my family's life without a feeling like a replacement for my mom. How do you guys deal with changes in your life while still honoring your past. Am i crazy for struggling to accept this new part of my life finally have one more question that s that i desperately need an answer for if each of you were a desert. Which one would you be. And why or is that desert is what i did today. A little side. Note i googled. How many weeks are in a year. Because i couldn't remember if it was fifty two or fifty. Isn't that wild. I told you in this podcast. Without knowing i just said that remember i was like fifty two because i i said fifty four. Didn't i save it for not that. I heard you talking about on this episode right now. Yeah remember. I was like how many times have i heard the theme site we it to times. Yeah i j formation not knowing you had been searching for it the other day i said to someone. I said something that i was like. Yeah fifty four t fifty two almost like sacked. Yeah fifty immediately. It was like they're right. Go with it commit. Also there's so many running bits that when you do step in it like that someone. Oftentimes they tend to think you're doing a bit and then you get the your fast enough like okay. You got it fifty two. Obviously i know that. Yeah you know me. One for each state in the united states to got it is desert to s.'s. Or one now. I know that she meant dessert. I think i feel how she signs off here. Well i don't know dude. Could you could say what desert would you be. That's why am i. All i can think was own my god. This is the first writer who truly believes that. You and i are very smart like multiple desert's sahara and i'm done and i'm out and that's only mckanna mocatta. He does it again. He does it again for me. I don't i gotta know in the desert. Yes see look at us. how many. How many desserts are there. Oh my god i bet. There's at least hundreds of desserts in the world. I don't even know thanks. They're six desert's. I wouldn't fight you about it this i looked at cam ago. I'm not talking about this. I refuse. He's talking about these. Desert's it's worth. It is worth looking up the name of all the desserts and then add a party. Be like just be like. Oh that that's near this. One desert-like desserts de desert's someone who's like i know a lot about desserts. We live next to desert. We're like in a desert right. And i don't know what the name of it is. Is death valley the name of the desert or just the valley or palm desert palm desert hundred. But she does mean desserts so here we love our pennies and pal. I love us but is dessert. Dessert to asses. If you made me put money on it. I would go to s.'s. But i'm not like you go to your right. Which one would you be. And why i am so thinking for all you do. Take that lauren. They read my letter to that makes me so happy. It makes me happy that both sincerely peach cobbler. Ashley ashley. good for you. Because honestly i was like. When will someone take lawrence thunder from her right good for too long right the only sell we've had fighting before those h. two o. Challenge girls from chicago and they cheated who. I thought my stand up. Every i've met them. I think twice at least some of them by my recollection. All of them have cheated that tournament in some way they all cheated and then they blame other. They blame openly. aren't they openly. Like yeah cheated like no one took that competition. They have arguments about. There's water coffee. Does that count and stuff like that. that's right to raid count. None of them should. I don't remember what my answer was. But the person. I've grown into only water. Should count two straight up some ice ice count. You're allowed to do ice frozen water counts. I don't remember what i said. I'd probably say coke counts at the time i was so young and stupid back then. It was fifty one weeks ago two years ago which let's go simple work backwards dessert. I mean you're going to be a pie. Yes say it i. I don't know how. I not apply. But i think you know what here's what you have to do. You have to tell us the pie but then you have to also pick a non pie. Dessert that you get the pie. I think i would choose. And i do not have a favorite pie. That's like my kid. Can i guess and get it in your head and let me guess and let's just see if it happens you on the opening scene ghostbusters together. Okay daniel i. It's i said it's fine. If i get a wrong okay ready. Yeah okay. i'm thinking banana cream pie. Oh you're so close chocolate cream pie. No you're you're so close. I'm like what is it. You're like you're so close between banana cream and one other coconut cream pie. I knew it was a cream. A freshly made coconut cream slides a coconut cream pie and a summer right. Lucky right before you jump in the lay. It's fluffy crisp crunch too. I think also. It's like the pie the most of the family reunion. So there's a lot of feelings passive crunch. It's got a passive crunch. Do it in push back but it will flaky crust. You want to be able to see the layers the crust pushes back but it allows That would be my slogan for my failing pie business because people don't know if it's a sex sex related or actual food it ecoconscious mac but then allows dominatrix. Service can be then. I'll give my non pie dessert. I'll think of it while you're saying your whatever you i feel like you're going to go i think feel like you're gonna go cobbler and you might also peach. I'm going to go ice cream. I wasn't even thinking ice cream but you know what you know. What if. I if i m euro vanilla vanilla ice cream and this is not necessarily what i eat but this is what i am The chocolate syrup that hardens rule shell. I've never shell and you're gonna have to crack into if you wanna get down to the good stuff of me. No freebies no freebies. I wasn't even thinking desert question. I wasn't even thinking about the question to the answer to answer the question. I'm wanna say if i'm going pie. German chocolate cake. I loved her and chocolate cake. This is the one moment here. Like mound nipper but if somebody considers i don't consider it is dessert but i don't consider a candy bar dessert. I consider it a snack. I i'm with you. i will. If i'm going by go the pastry what pastry would you be torture ourselves. All the i like those customers with all the food on it. In a decorative way with the little chrome crust. It's almost like a little like a little pie. you can't get away from about me. Hey like what are you gonna do. Yeah i think that's desert. Good yeah okay. I can't remember what those are called. They have a name for them but tarnow patisserie chart little fruit tart little cream fruit tart tart compute like that for you to napoleon all right. Let's unpack the bigger thing here. Okay i off you know Sincere condolences about the passing of your mother. I mean even just those very few sentences. The way you describe it as is. Earth shattering and heartbreaking Simple answer for me and i. It's u2 you gotta let your. Dad live his life and you have to let him and it no matter how you feel about it. Your dad needs this. And if he didn't he probably wouldn't be seeking it out and probably wouldn't be participating in it but as special as it your mother is and was and what she meant to you it it. It isn't enough in my personal opinion. It isn't enough to go. Well i had this great person and now they're gone so i did that. That's not what it is. It's the thing that you get in those relationships. And i think you have to step back and not look at it like they are comparisons. Your dad isn't going to be dating someone to replace your mom your dad what i was gonna say your dad is is finding someone that he wants to share his life with. And this will make your in from this. She's in college but as someone who's forty the older you get. This will make more sense to you. I give myself advice as a kid. If i could go back to my college self. I would tell myself all of this stuff that you question or judge people on or predict what your relationships are the people it will all make so much more sense when you are older you will understand it when you're older so you have to keep an open mind now. Your dad's life as hard as this is. Your life is not your dad's life and your dad's life is not your life. Will you wouldn't want your dad's standing in the way of your life so you have to. You have to think about that when you your relationship with your dad. He needs something. He might need an aside from needing that other person that he might need. He also needs your support in doing that because keep in mind how difficult that is emotionally and mentally for him to share that sacred space with someone new. That is not your mother. It's not something that that that mothers and fathers who have to go through this easily do it's a difficult space to navigate. Well you know. She's in college and i would. I'm guessing we're somewhere around three years removed from his mom passing away. And i i wanna say a couple of things. I think you touch on something great and this is not a joke although it might sound like one one thing that struck me about the britney spears documentary was the guy who was. She wanted to be her lawyer. And the judge told him that he couldn't be her lawyer or whatever he kept saying i have to remind myself. I don't know what i don't know. And so this is just in terms of what you were speaking to about growing up is like if sometimes when things bother you or don't feel right you have to tie yourself. Well i don't know what i don't know and i so that means i can't get too frustrated about it. That means i can't feel like. I should be trying to fix it. That means i should shouldn't assume that i even can fix it. Because i don't know what i don't know and the great thing is what you're saying is is over time things that you don't know you don't know as you get older you will be given perspective that only comes with just like life and growth and i think that especially and i am not speaking to you in anyway but the younger we are the less we know and in the context of your leonard what i think is we see our parents. First their first thing to us is their gods and sadly sometimes they can be evil gods or they can be like the most wonderful god's ever but their gods and then over time they become more and more and more humanized to us as we become more and more of our own right of human in our own agency and we see choices we make and then we get more throughout life we faced with the same choices our parents got faced with at twenty at thirteen fifteen forty and we feel like oh i i would have done this and i see now that my parents and what that creates is two things one you understand the foul of fout fallacy fallacy fallacy fallible the fallibility. I don't know if that's a word of mouth parent. And i'm not the person to ask but that makes you also understand. That more of them are just a person. And i say oh that sailed us. Your dad is your dant but he is still a man if he identifies that way. Let's say does he is still a man and he's not looking to replace the mother of his daughters. He's looking to find new. I'm i hate to use the word replace but find a new person to fill the romantic side of him. Because your mom wasn't just your mom. She was also someone's wife and before that girlfriend and love interest and romantic relationship partner and says your dad and so he's like what you just said to reiterate or a little bit. That's what he's looking for. He's not like hey what do you want to be the College age mother mother of my college age kids know you want to go on a fucking walk and watch a movie and and hold hands and give me somebody who. I'm romantically interested in to be able to hug. Yeah so that's that's that's what's being identified here and communication of that can make things better. He could tell you that maybe he can't some people hard and how they put things in. Were like hey. I just wanna share a romantically share a bucket of popcorn with someone. That's that's all that's all this is. Yeah and i think also to important thing and this is to give yourself credit. I don't i don't think. And i hope that none of this feels like it's coming down on you because it's all natural it's all real feeling and it's valid is that we all grieve on a different timeline and it still may be so raw for you for the loss of your mom to not even want to see your dad hold somebody else and that feeling just inside yourself is okay to feel you. Don't get to put that onto another person but it's okay for you to things a little bit right. Yeah and same for your dad. He's on his own pathway and as long as people are respectful of like what other people's greasing grieving processes and they're not trying to slow anybody down or speed anybody else up. You just have to keep that communication of like dad. I'm so happy that you have somebody to share some recipes. Pc's with but it's hard for me to see another person's hand in in that frame and he could go. I totally get that. Yeah and then but he would probably do you want me to feel lonely and you would look at him. I imagine ago. No see. I think i think i think it's perspective and i think that's right i think ima- imagine but you really try to put yourself in that position and say that you're a mother of three and you lose your husband and would you say while i. I will never be with another person and i won't. I won't get into another relationship. And i won't or would you or would you want. Would you know that there's something inside you that you know we as people are drawn to those things it we don't get just one. You can have these great powerful meaningful life changing relationships with many many people. I couldn't sit here. And you know heaven forbid even hypothetical but if i was in your dad shoes i can't sit here and say that i would just then accept that. That's i had my one marriage in that than i loved her. And that's that i. I don't think that's i in guessing who i am. I need that. And i don't think the thing that i need that i get from my from jordan. I don't i. I don't look at it as though i can only get this from jordan. I can only get this version of this from jordan and i am you know over the moon. Lucky that the version i get to have is incredibly amazing but in reality is as hard as his face. It doesn't mean that there aren't other amazing potential relationships out there. They're very hard to find. But i couldn't sit here and go. Oh i shouldn't seek it out. I had an amazing one. If that's what you want in your life in this lifetime you it's on you to go find that that happiness and i know based on this letter. I know that you wouldn't be like why just rather my dad be unhappy because it makes me feel this way. I know that's not what you're saying. No and i think. Because that's not what you're saying and because i can tell from this letter that's not who you are. It comes down to not trying to look at anyone. Your dad dates as a new mom or stepmom even or as you know oh well you my mom used to be in your position you have to force yourself to not see it and know that your mom was a one of a kind person in this position these other people are are people that you could have potentially great friendships with and if your dad truly falls in love with someone that is also meaningful and beneficial to you. That means you might also have an amazing relationship with this new person. Your mom isn't trying to be your mom and honestly i'm putting myself in the shoes of the hypothetical woman that we're talking about if that's if your dad is trying to take a woman from her perspective she is also probably like. I don't want that vibe. At all. I just i'm a chill regular normal person in your dad. Your dad and i just happened to meet at a thing and we hit it off. And i didn't know his story and he told me a story but faulk there's something there and it feels really good that only you know that's it isn't like that's easy to come by so if your dad finds that as hard as it is you know really really. Try to see it from a perspective. Would you want your kids to support you. If you were on that same journey your dad was on. And i think you know the answer is yes so really. Try to see it from that perspective and go. I'm gonna support my dad. And if i have an issue with with anything there's an open line of communication. I'm also going to sit here and say your dad could start dating a horrible person. That's also a thing that can happen. And that's when it's time to speak up but you know about that it'll be about that person being a and the way the relationship that you have with your dad and how close you are with your dad and how you describe it in this letter. I i think that if your dad really found someone that he thought was special then i think you would probably find them to be pretty special to. I think you might actually find it to make your life happier to welcome that person in not as a replacement but just as a new person a new bonus person that you get to have in your life. Who's maybe awesome. And when you're you know seventy years old you look back and go you know that. Let's say it's this woman some well. I don't know who it would be but you might look back and go. That woman really changed my life. She really made my life amazing. She came she came an amazing friend. And like was there for me and my kids and you know you you you know. Expect the don't expect anything but just don't assume that it has to be the cliche that we see in movies and tv shows. These aren't never replacements. And i think your dad would be only knowing him from this letter. I would say i think he would be smart enough to to to know that too. Yeah and this might be my last thing on this word. But don't you think too like you kinda also have to give people the opportunity to show you how much they care about you. Yes so like you could like you have a right to say to your dad like dad in the context of you being a man who has a right to like. Go out to a nice outdoor dinner. We have outdoor. I know so covert language language but in the conduct of that. Like i'm so happy for you but you know how like. We always did like goofy family photos for christmas morning if christmas were next month. I don't know that i'd be ready for deborah to be in the photo like not that she doesn't seem cool or make you happy. But i'm just saying right now. That could would just really make me sad and your dad ago hopefully would go like yeah. We're not this is in the context of meat. I'm not looking to bring somebody into that. She gets to wear matching pajamas with like the rest of us on christmas. Like yeah if that ever happens. It's because all of us want that to happen. It's not like and then you and then when you give someone the opportunity to make you to to hear you and make you feel better. Oh my god you're no longer like carrying this thing on your own. You're always in that person who is your best friend and your role model and and means so much to you to be able to be like that for a reason. Because i'm gonna hear you. And i care about you and then it also allows you to go that removes a lot of this fear so now i get to just kind of operate somebody. Who's like hey nice to meet you without this focus going to be. Does anybody care how i feel like. He didn't forget that he's your dad but he also can't forget that he's also has his own person yes who has launched needs and right you know as you get older you realize we have but my dad's my dad you're gonna you're gonna learn potentially the as you get older like you really start to have your own life and your dad has his own life and if you've done things right you've you still meet in the middle and you figure you figure it out but Yeah i i it's not easy. I know that it's not easy. Nobody thinks it is. But i would say the advice i would offer not specifically asking for it is just keep an open open heart in an open. Mind to who any of these people are that your dad might bring in and really dig deep and and try to be supportive knowing that it's it's also crazy for him to seek out something in a space that he's only known in such a deep and profound way with this one other person that he can't have that space with anymore. No that that is. It's it's it potentially is heart-wrenching for him. So no that you know. I think this all come from a solid. Hopefully eventually he gets our gt when yup. That's right all right. That's it for me roar. Well and that's that's it for me. We wish you well ashley. Hugh beach cobbler. Nearly your pen pals daniel banker scoble pal nations.

No i have caused this week's episode to share with you a couple chicago saint patrick's day memory. Here we go. I know i was an assistant manager of the flagship. Fannie may candies. I could talk about the half of the sentence. I just read for an hour. Also now is the one. That's at michigan and wacker reading that letter. And i've been to that so many the amount of times that i bought and pixies from fannie mae store to take to rosemary van kirk for christmas. I can't even. I used to work. Cain that's her version it is. She snorts them yes. Okay rose revs mary. I was innocent manager at the flagship. Fannie may candies at michigan wacker. I was the opener the morning of the river. Dying and parade for those who know you have a pretty good idea of the horrors. I saw that day and thanks to our basically floor to ceiling windows. I had a front row seat. I've i worked in a tanning. Will i'll say this. That was a perfect storm of horrible. Our district manager wouldn't let us close. We were understaffed as always and we didn't have a public bathroom. I had dozens of people threatened to urinate on my floors. If i didn't let them use our employees bathroom lots of people wanted me fired. We had tons of product. Walk out the door because we couldn't stop shoplifters and when the crowd finally died down and we're able and we were able to assess the damage. We found a dirty diaper on the sales floor all of this on top of trying to sell chocolates to incoherent drugs drunks and screaming children. That day was the closest. I've ever come to walking out on a job at about noon. I was ready to send everyone home. And burn the place to the ground. Love it the other saint patrick's day. I can remember daniel. You may have been here for. The holiday fell on a saturday and it was eighty degrees in chicago march seventeenth saturday eighty degrees chicago illinois. That's just me giving you a little fresher chicago went. Buck fucking wild. I lived on the outskirts of wrigleville and could take either the red or brown line home from work. That day i knew getting off at addison was not an option that day but after being almost puked on while on the brown line i said fuck this got out at belmont and walked the mile home on my walk i passed the lay on belmont and saw a person wearing an irish flag as a cape wielding a broom screaming back off at a line of people who just wanted a burrito guest. This person wanted to breed. Oh more at this point in the day all the bars and belmont in southport had spilled into the streets. It felt like one huge frat party. I finally made it up southport level. These jobs to my home showered immediately and contemplated burning my clothes. All right time to get back to the episode roseanne It's it is terrifying chicago. And i've heard new york as wild. I'm sur- boston is to york. There's something about chicago saint patrick's day. So i was here in l. La when that eighty degrees day. Hit but i remember. I believe it was two thousand eleven. I remember saying to myself. This has got to be the most batch crazy. I'm gonna run you down just one of the saint patrick's day that i did okay six. Am we meet outside of. What was that bar. It was like on diversity right at lake shore drive. I know only people. I'm talking to knows it doesn't really matter. We all get on a bus. We start drinking. You could either on the us. Yes instantly which is not as fun as it seems. It's fun for about five minutes. Yeah you're you're spilling your drink. You're making your drunk like baileys coffee and screwdrivers. I think i had four screwdrivers by the time we got down to beverly where the south side irish parade was happening. South side. irish parade is chicago's or was chicago's mardi gras. There are no fucking rules and cops everywhere who do not care. Yeah we got off you you. You're not supposed to have an open container. You know people can brown bracket but like no one cared to parade goes down. I think western in beverly. That's also we're all the cops live and it is a free for all the parades going on everybody's out in their front laws i meet up with. Tj an arena. Whose family lived down there. They've got a whole spread going. Then we end up in a bar and we're in this bar when the parade end. I'd never done this outside. Irish parade I'm obviously annihilated. And they start saying oh. Don't go outside and i was like. Why praise over. I don't like so what they're like. Oh the it. All the rules are back because the parades over and so we. You run like we're trying to make it to the helicopter. Which is the bus or train. i can remember. I think we took the train. And yes we miss the bus. Cops are just just putting people into cobb like every anytime anybody with a drink in their hand. You're locked up the moratorium. The perjured ended right. And so then we end up back on the north side attitude. Lay fittingly enough for this story. We drink so many margaritas at this chapel. Lay it's saint patrick's day. Then we ended up at chateau tap on lincoln avenue. I leave at like one or two in the morning i am. I'm no. I'm not. But i figured on this where i felt so drinks so much and like gotten drunk and then like sobered up and a and still drinking but at this point like i'm just sober i leave and go home. Two of my friends go down to like a club and they're out till six in the morning one of them gets knife pulled on them. The cops show up at the club and they come banging like banging on my window at like seven in the morning i let them and they sleep on the hardwood floor and i go to bed. That's just one saint patrick's day but this is what it's like everywhere. I am just not built that way. We'll none of us. Are i feel like the most insane i ever got in terms of this was when i went to panama panama city beach for spring break. You did a spring two thousand to two dozen to. Is it just insane. It was insane the hotel we were at the hotels. No it's in the room. It's like garbage hotels. Of course there were there. Were like twelve of us in a hotel like all dudes on the soccer team when you went out on the balcony. The whole like hotel is like a horseshoe with like the pool. Everybody is on the balcony and screaming like it's a fuck and european soccer game. I mean it is going crazy and there's people on balconies come up to our room. You're just going to whatever room hanging out and then some nights you're going to the club and it's the same thing happening in the club. It truly is like it was truly bizarre. It was the most bizarre thing i i. I like partying goes. That's the most i've ever. Yeah dude. I just not drink like that one year and went to irish is. I started getting sick listening to when you said you. Drink a lotta margaritas. I could only taste the sugar and the upset stomach. That's all. I feel too man blind one year. But that's how weak of a graham felt it now ten years later i feel that way too about that sugar like i remember one year. Irish is on lincoln and disbar see. That's the hall and oates cover cover bar. Irish is irish the drinking so i'm an irish higher bars. Probably eight hundred square feet right and you. Cannot you decide. The amount of fire codes get broke on saint patrick's day at bars. You cannot move to the back door. I give the door guy twenty dollars. And i start letting my friends in the back door and then i ended up much like you that when i became like a de facto door guy but i didn't care because knowing that guy he was he could go get like sodas and waters whenever he wanted. So you just getting me drinks. I also this and they were like whatever like no one cares. I know because it's all money. They're making so much much. Money does bartenders making like two three grand day. Yeah but i mean they. They earn it dude. It's wild it's wild. Yeah i can't handle it. I mean you heard about miami right now right. They shut it down dude. There's this show too. Of course. Of course who are these people. I don't know who was. He's if he beats yes thousands. It looks like the west. Hollywood halloween parade.

I'll get to talk about miami beach and people know was there. I was zone there in chicago for saint patrick's day do like an annual thing where they give the police blotter for the entire day and the one from this year. I've read it. Multiple times in my life is terrifying and one of the most hilarious things. 'cause people people were just every it looked like it looked like a. I'm i hate. I hate when we like cavalieri paint war zones as lightly but it just it just looked like there was bodies of people like yeah passed out with everywhere in the planters along michigan avenue. Like just like i'm not. That's like one of them. God i don't. I don't want to ever do that again. But i'm also excited where maybe a year or two from now people can responsibly. Do that without.

Dr Gayle Carson - Finding Yourself in 2019

"Hi, everyone. This is Dr Carson, welcome to living regret free a program that shows you how to live a better and more joyful life. As an added bonus. I invite you to listen to an introduction to my mindset matters program, which ties into this sub. Well, go to WWW dot SOB, mindset dot com, it's free. And I know you will enjoy it if you'd like to contact me personally drop me a line at Gail Carson thirteen at g mail dot com. Or go to my website, WWW dot spunky old broad dot com and sign up for my weekly newsletter. Hi, everybody. This is Gail Carson. And I'm here to welcome. You the first of the year on living regret free. And you know that I am all about that. And we're looking at two thousand nineteen as a year of change. I mean, everything has changing around us. And those of you who are listening. You know, it's very interesting because we hear so many dire messages over the media, whether it be print or whether it be online or whether it be through broadcast media or on a show like this. And when I talk about living regret free. I really talk about the things that make you happy. And that's what I'm all about. I want you to do things that other people tell you to do. In other words, there are always people who are judging you, and there are always people who are saying, oh, you shouldn't do this or you should do that or things like that. The important thing is that you yourself need to make the decisions that you want to make your life better. Now. Those of you who read my blog and read my newsletter, you know, that I don't necessarily believe in new year resolutions, I do believe in and I don't necessarily believe in actual goal. Setting. I believe in writing down what you visualize as your dream life. It has to be realistic. It has to be attainable. It has to be a lot of things. But when you set goals, there's all kinds of things that come up that sidetrack you could be health issues. It could be financial it could be personal. There might be people in your life that come into it that you need to care for or make things go for you. But the important thing is if you have an idea of what it is you want to accomplish if you have an idea of where you wanna go if you have an idea of how you want your life to look, then you've got something to work towards, and I think the biggest question that you have to ask yourself is does this have anything. To do with where I want to go. Now, there's a lot of things that come up in your life. I mean, there are new people new friends new opportunities, maybe new job offers. And I know that many times you look at something. And you say, well, you know, do am I really interested in this. Maybe it makes financial sense or maybe it makes emotional set or maybe even makes sense in terms of of your health. But you have to ask yourself that important question. And that's what I've been doing lately more than any other times. And that is. Does this have anything to do with where I want to go? And I'll give you a really good example. Many of you know, that I worked as a professional speaker for over thirty years. I worked in fifty countries I work in forty nine states. I adored every single minute of it. And you have no idea how hard it was to go from one place to another because I was doing a hundred and thirty five programs a year, and that's a lot of programs because you've got to give yourself a day to travel back and forth and so forth. And now more than anything else when I'm interested. In is what I'm doing now on the radio and radio and television has become my focus, and although I love to speak, and if someone asked me to do a speech, I will do it. And if I you know, if someone says, you know, this is a really important event. And we really want you there. I will do it. It's not my focus anymore because I at this point in my life, don't wanna be running all over the place. It's not that easy to get from one place to another anymore with all the, you know, rules and regulations, and you can't switch from one airline to the other as you used to be able to do gosh. I remember times when I would even get an plane. I don't even know if they knew I was there because an airline what they just run across the the terminal and get on the plane. They know you're coming, and I would think okay. And no one even asked me for a ticket or anything. Now, of course, all of that is impossible. So my value system has changed. And what I love doing is. I love doing the media. I love doing radio. I love doing television. I love doing, you know, webinars where I can consider behind the computer and talk to all of you and teach you things and those are the things that I like to do. So when people say, you know, I have this brand new program that I want you to take or there's this new discovery that will make all the difference in your career. I say to myself does this have anything to do with what I want to do in the future. And you'd be surprised now eighty percent of the time the answer is no. So whether it has to do with your career, whether it has to do with your family, whether it has to do with maybe a new hobby that you're starting. Perhaps it even has to do with, you know, a person that you wanna get to know if has to be your dream and your goal, and your something that you want is it going to get you where you want to go. Does it have anything to do with where you want to go? So that's what I want you to think about for two thousand nineteen is you know, all these things that are running around in your head. And all these opportunities that present themselves to you and all the new friends old friends that you are going to meet and have met and have a long relationship with. How does that help you get to where you want to go next? And, you know, something where you wanna go next doesn't have to be this Bagna, mental fabulous. Oh my gosh. I can't believe that I'll ever get there. Kind of situation. It can just. Be what you are happy doing my philosophy. And most of you followed me know this. When I get up in the morning. Do I have a smile on my Tae? And when I go to sleep at night. Do I have a smile on my say, and does that allow me to get through all of us stuff? And I'm gonna call it stuff that you go through in a day because there are people who are put on this earth to challenge, you, you know, I mean is it going to be great for you is going to be bad for you. Is it going to be okay for you? Those are the things that you have to look at it and say. How do I feel about this? So let's talk about some of the elephants that are in the room. Many of us know that we're coming in for a financial humdrum. I mean, we can see things happening already in the housing market in the healthcare market. They're going to be some tough challenges ahead in two thousand nineteen are you prepared for that? Are you prepared to be able to deal with what's coming into your life one of the curves that was thrown to me in two thousand eighteen with that? I was diagnosed with my fourth case of breast cancer. Now, this has taken part, by the way over thirty one years. Thirty one years, I have been dealing with it. And this is a whole different kind. Even though it's breast cancer. It's a whole different situation now because I have had a double mastectomy I have been on medication all these years. I have done the chemo. I have done many times of radiation. And so, you know, I mean, this is not new to the game so to speak, but I can tell you that. When this was diagnosed, I was absolutely amazed that it could come back like that. So now, I'm undertreatment a whole new kind of treatment that wasn't even vailable three years ago, and I'm not dealing with. I'm I'm getting chemo. But it's a totally different kind of chemo. If not through an infusion and it's not through a port. They actually give me a shot in each butt cheek if you'll excuse the expression, but it's an oil shot, and then I'm taking a pill, which I take for twenty one days. And then I'm offer week. They've changed the milligrams a couple of times because my blood count went down. And I'm not telling you this to make you feel sorry for me because I. Go through all the stuff. I always been. I've got a lot of energy. I still work out. I've changed my workouts. I'm not working out with as much weight as I once did because of of the, you know, the tumors, etc. But I am doing all the things that I ever did. And so is threw me a curve, and I had to deal with it. But because I am a strong person because I do believe in positive thinking because I am a happy person. And because those of you who know me again, no how how passionate about my animals and got these two little kitties. Who drive me crazy, but I love them. And they are just surrounding me with the lotto love as my family is too. And so, you know, that's what you have to look at. I can't feel sorry for myself. I I look forward to the future look forward to everything that I'm doing and I look forward to a great two thousand nineteen. So what I'm asking you is if you're in a situation like that. And somebody approaches you about something does it have anything to do with where you wanna go and that makes a big big difference. So my two thousand nineteen is focused on the media doing great radio shows, which I adore doing taking care of my health. And I do everything I'm supposed to do. I don't mess around with it. I also have a dear friend who also has a show on my SOB radio network dot com and her name is Dr Christine Horner, and she's a fabulous position. And she has given me some holistic medicine to follow which I am doing faithfully. And so I'm doing all the things that I'm supposed to do. So two thousand nineteen for me will be a lot of change because after living in Florida for sixty years. I'm going. Removing fulltime to California, and that's going to be a culture shock, although I've been going to California since two thousand and two just every month because I've always had a place here. But this is going to be full-time. So let me tell you what I did. Because this is again about living regret free living your dream. My place of actually in palm desert. I did have a home in Palm Springs. But now it's in palm desert. So I decided if I'm going to be active, and I love being active, then I need to know what's going on in town. So I called the palm desert chamber of commerce. I I went to their website, which I was very disappointed in and I talked to their marketing director on a Monday because it was always thanks giving and they were closed for the four days. And I told him I taught their website was terrible. And she agree with me. And they're trying to update it and so forth, but I asked for an appointment to come in. And so I saw her on that Tuesday. I called Monday appointment for two day and went in there. And they were so gracious to me they introduced me to everybody. They took me around the facility, and they've asked me to be an ambassador for them, which is fantastic for me. Because this way, I'll get to meet everybody, and they'll get to meet me. Am I've already we had a little party at our community event at my new place and talked to a few people about starting an SOB Claude there, and I've got people who are interested in are willing to help me with it. So there's you know, an that all came about and just like two or three days. So you can't wait for something to happen. You need to orchestrate something to happen. And that's why I say it's so important for you to know, what is it you want? What is it that you want out of life? How do you want to be happy? What will make you happy? What will bring joy into your life? It is so important to look at all of that. Because that gives you the opportunity to design whatever kind of life in the future, you want some people think they're stuck. I've done it this way for twenty years. I've done it this way for thirty years. And this is the way I do it me. I'm always open to. Change. And I'm always open to what else is out there. So this will be the start of a whole brand new life for me, and it won't happen immediately because I'm not moving right away. But I do I do intend to make this a very full life when I'm out in the palm desert area in California. So I'm just saying to you. I want you to sink, I want you to think I want you to turn off the TV turn also music during off the radio, turn off everything just sit and think about what you want to thousand nineteen to be right down what your ideal day looks like right down what your ideal day is composed of I know when I write down my ideal day, even though you all know, I go to the gym. And I work out all the time. I wrote down, you know, I'd really like to have my own personal trainer. That would be terrific for me. I also would love to have my own personal ship because I don't cook. So I I buy a lot of prepared foods, and I'm a great Michael waiver. But I can tell you in all three of my home's no stove has ever been touched because I don't put which is kinda cute because in college. This would this is. Really an interesting story for all of you. I taught cooking in in college. I had to take a practice teaching porous. But my my my major was drama and theater. So I had this course that I was or place that I taught theater, but they needed a cooking teacher as well. And they couldn't afford both. So they asked me could I teach cooking. Well, I wanted to get the credit for my theater. So I said, yes, I could. And I was a great actress. So I I would read the back of the whatever I was bringing to cook that we we did one week of cooking and one week of theater, and when we took cooking when we consider and I would read it with such thorny and the kids were like eight nine years old. They didn't know. And I remember things that my mom did who was fantastic. And I remember her sticking the fourth in and taking it out, and oh, it's done. I would great at all of that. And believe it or not I got an A in the course. And then when I got married. And had all these kids. I bought a cookbooks. And if the cookbook said mix stir or blend I made it if it said puree, separate or anything more complicated. I turn the page and said, we're not having that. And that's my cooking experience. But the point is I I mean, I do like he'd I mean, but I eat I don't eat to live. Oh, I don't live to eat. I should put it that way. I don't live to eat. I eat to live. But I would love to have somebody prepare the kinds of foods that I like that are healthy and sit down and eat them that would be ideal. So that's on my bucket list have a personal personal chef and have a personal trainer now when I write my ideal day, my ideal day is to get up and work out first thing because I think that kind of sets the tone for my day anyway, and it is better. I think if you work out in the morning, then they laid evening, but anyway, that's a personal choice. Then I get to work. Work writing or tow ching or doing a show or doing a webinar or whatever those things are. And however long that takes whether it be three hours four hours five hours. Whatever it is. I do that. And then when I'm through with that. I shut down. Yes. I do check my Email in between. And I'm fortunately get a lot of Email. I guess six hundred a day. So I deleted a lot. However, then I spend time with my little kitty's. I'll sit down there in my lap there right around me. I'm petting them. There's a soothing effect there. And I do get my eight hours of sleep every night. And I do sleep very, well, I can tell you. I don't need anything to low me to sleep. I sleep duri-. Well, but the important thing is I just truly believe that your day needs to be your day, not anybody else's day. Now, I know some of you out there who are listening to this of other responsibilities. Look I had three kids that I had to raise a business to run and husband who was a great partner. I mean, he he was babbling. I don't think I could have done half the things I did without him. But he was a great support and a great help and a great love of my life and. And the important thing was we managed we got everything done. And it was amazing to me all the things that we did get done. But now I've had a different adjustment to make my husband's been gone now ten and a half years and my life is different. I don't have the kids anymore. As a matter of fact, I've got great grandchildren now, and my life is totally different. And I live alone except for my kitties. And so how I operate is is just totally different. And all I'm saying to those of you out there is I want you to write down your ideal day and see how close you come to. It. Are you as close to it as you should be are you where you wanted to go? What do you have to change in your life every day to be able to to get done? What you want to get done, for example? If there's a meeting like I I'm very good at going to meeting. But if there's something else on the agenda that I have to do. In other words, I've got a show to do. I've got a call that has to be done or I have an appointment with a friend. Then I don't do some of the other things that I might do. Otherwise, I mean, I schedule the meetings I show up for my meetings. But if something comes along that is better for me to do than go to that meeting. I won't go. And I will let them know about that. So there are things that that you look at that you must make decisions on and we'll all your decision. See perfect. Absolutely. Not will all your choices. Be perfect. Absolutely. Not. But if you can get as close to what your ideal day should look like, that's the key. That's the answer. What do you want your day to look like? And then try to get as close as you can now I know people who say what they want in their ideal day. And then they do everything I can to fabric. Josh it. And how do you do that? Well, you've got something planned person calls you up and said says can you do this? Or will you do this or and you say, yes, when you know, the answer should be no, you don't have the time. You're booked with something else. Something else is more important that you really need to do that is your choice. So life is really folks all about choices. And you know, you know, that I refer to myself as a no so be spunky. Oh broad and I consider many of. You are listening even though this is my living regret free show and not my SOB show. I assume many of you are what I call SOB's, which is funky open and brave. That's what SOB fans for for you. Spunky open and brave, and that means when you're spunky he'll do things that other people choose not to do because it's too barred when you open, it means that you're open to other ideas and other situations and rave means you're willing to go ahead and try something new. So let me tell you how you can get some of my information. My website is spunky oh broad dot com. So if you go to spunky, oh broad dot com. You'll see the services that I offer you'll see the book that I've written. You'll see the courses that I offer. And some of the may not be up there yet. Because I have a wonderful course on how to get on radio and television. I have a wonderful course on positive mindset. You can always Email me at Gail Carson G A Y L E Carson thirteen at gmaiLcom, but you can go to my website. And you can see a lot about what I have to offer. You can Email me, and I'll be more than happy to answer any emails that you spend to me.

And I'll be glad to give you any information that you might want. Again, the whole purpose is living the life that you want to live not that other people hell you you should live. So do me a favor. You've got you know, you've got some time. Now this first month of the year. And I want you to sit down and write what you want your ideal day to look like what you want your ideal months to look like what you want your ideal year to look like. And then let every decision. That you make from now on go towards what you want that life to be. And that's the way you're going to get there inch by inch. It doesn't happen all at once inch by inch little by little.

And that's not exactly the word I was looking for. But that's a good enough word it's something it's going. It's happening at IRC that twit dot TV bunch of other people watching the show and listen to the show and talking about the show. I r C twit dot T V. So apple was a little busy this week and a bunch of new stuff. Let's talk about it briefly because it's nothing anybody can afford. So. It's just the kind of thing that makes people jealous and unhappy. It's, it's as if it's it's as if your favorite computer company came out, or your favorite car company came out and said, well, she's very much like Ford has a car that no one can afford to write, what is the GT one can afford it or, you know, it's a supercar somebody can afford it. I guess not me, but Ford makes it because there are people who will buy it. It also is good for business because people look at it and they go out for it can really make some amazing stuff. And I think also, you know, and they race it and stuff. But I think also. There's an important point to Ford GT, which is if, if cost Renault object, given the engineering expertise, we have what would we make? What, what would be, you know, if we didn't have to think about selling it. What would we make? And you would make something that looked probably a lot like the Ford GT, or in Apple's case, their new MAC pro which is really in many ways the pit himmy of computer technology design, it's as if apple literally said, look. The sky's the limit guys go and make something. Now, of course, you could make a supercomputer that no one would need by. So I guess they probably didn't say the sky's limit in that sense. But they said, look, let's make the best computer for professionals for people who need people who are editing. Eight K high dynamic range video, super quality video, or people who have they showed it off on stage on Tuesday. They showed a one of the new MAC pros, which looks strikingly like a cheese grater one of those standing cheese graders. That's actually good news. And I'll tell you why about that. But they should one of these MAC pro cheese graders running their music program. Logic pro, and it was a fun, reveal because it started off with just a few instruments, and they said, well, you know, many times we want more instruments. How about a thousand sampled real samples of instruments synthesize. But real Sam. Nls of instruments. One thousand. They opened up and it keeps playing and there's no hesitation. And then he says, but, you know, really this music is a soundtrack for a movie that's being edited in eight K. That's you know, four times the resolution of four K sixteen times, the resolution of high def HD HD are and, you know, we have three separate video streams in the eight k so let's play all of those. So they've got now three eight K video streams, high quality video streams, plus a thousand instruments playing the soundtrack. And then let's look at this, let's look at the processor monitor. And the thing is chugging along, and it doesn't even sound loud. The fans are quite this is this is nice. This is pretty now. That machine is not the base model. I can I probably promise you that it is it is. In fact, most likely the hot one of the highest end models. So this thing starts off with a eight eight core. Zeon w processor from Intel that's the base model. It's, it's got what was it, sixty? Four thirty two gigs of ram. I can't remember a, a lot after certain point you don't have to ask it has dual graphics cards. I think it had the dual graphics, the base model you know, and it has a whopping two hundred fifty six gig hard drive. Okay. Maybe that was a little small two hundred six that by itself that thing, which you can't buy till his fall is, is, is five thousand dollars or six thousand dollars six thousand dollars. But that money doesn't matter. Because honestly, that's. The basement. Let's the one no one wants to just make it so that they could show the lowest price really the one that's playing thousand music streams the same time and, you know, eight K videos and all that. And it's probably got a lot more memory up to by the way, this thing will come with up to one and a half terabytes of memory. Now that drive that turned fifty six give drive you know, to put more in there. And in fact, they will have the ability to add, these new modules that can get quite large. I think I saw thirty two terabytes but apple spec it out at four terabytes max twenty eight cores twenty eight different processors in the on the motherboard. Dual dual video cards. Yes. Dual dual video cards. That's four video cards rayon pro Vega twos. And then optional features include just like the Ford GT the apple after burner. And we'll yes, we'll are extra the thing is so heavy you might wanna get those the cheese grater. Oh. Do you wanna keyboard and a mouse that will be extra? Did you wanna monitor well could news, apples also making a monitor for this for GT of computers? That comes in at a nifty five thousand dollars. The X DR, multiple monitor very nice thirty two inch beautiful beautiful monitor see associate so but, but wait a minute. I didn't mention one thing. It doesn't come with a stand. If you actually only bought the five hundred dollar monitor, which is fall over. I guess you could lean it against the six thousand dollar computer, and then you'd be done at eleven thousand dollars. But you're gonna probably wanna buy the apple stand for one thousand dollars. Basically, that's like the rims on the Ford GT. It's gonna cost you okay because you're not buying you know, an I MAC here. This is something special. So I figure nobody knows yet because apple is not gonna shipped to the fallen apple hasn't said anything, except the base price. But I would guess that nicely equipped. Mac pro twenty nineteen MAC pro from apple cost you around. Oh, I say, twenty five thousand dollars thirty thousand dollars pounds less than a four GT actually, you know, less than a Chevy volt. So, you know, not so bad. Actually, very gratifying. I'm gonna tell you making fun of it because of course it's hysterical. But it actually is really gratifying. It's apple. Listen. This is why it's graph is listening to pros. The people who edit video and make music, and, you know, do high end stuff people who are working for a living with their max for whom time is of the essence. And in most cases, they just charge it back to the client anyway. Major motion picture studios, things like that. They're making what they wanted it returned to. What was the classic cheese grater, MAC, pro it looked like a cheese grater then to not quite as much really looks like geez, now with stainless steel handles. It's a, it's a work of art. It's a beautiful thing. And for the people who would buy this kind of thing it's exactly what they want and apple will continue to offer all the other. You know, the I MAC pro for five thousand dollars the I MAC for three thousand dollars. You couldn't. You know, there's, there's still a Ford Fiesta for people who can't afford the GT. And apple, I think is doing the right thing by making this. They're showing this is what we can do this is this is how how, how great, we can make it and, you know, after the MAC pro the last MAC pro which they introduced in twenty thirteen. Yes. Six years ago. This is very nice. This is what we wanted. They also announced, I think an interest in the second most interesting thing them we're going to have to take a break, because I'm running time the second most interesting thing announced was they're going to split. I o s the iphone and ipad operating system in two parts. I o s for iphones, and I pad OS for ipads. They're announcing in effect. We're gonna make our I pad which has been really running on iphone operating system for since twenty tents came out for almost a decade we're going to make one that specifically to take advantage of the screen real estate, the capabilities of the ipad, and I think that's very interesting. So this is Apple's developer conference. Just ended. And I think some very good news. This was a busy week. There's more than that. And we'll talk more about that in a bit. But we also want to take your calls. Eight asked Leo's the phone number. I'd love to hear from you. Your questions. Your comments your suggestions. I'm gonna run out and buy a Ford GT and I'll be back in just a bit. Taking your calls. Beautiful twit. Eastside studios home of the tech, I show it's Kimmy. Don't take. No scheffer. Hello, Kim morning. Good morning to you. I am very well. Yes, yes. I've run out of small talk. That was it. That's you noticed. Thousand dollars first-hand. There you go. Actually justify it. You know why justify because the professionals who buy these monitors don't often don't use stands. They will get a visa mount which they also offer for only a few hundred bucks and mounted on the wall on an arm or that kind of thing. And that's you see that frequently and edit suites and places where these monitors might live. So why put them why put the stand on there? And if you want the stand, well, it's lovely. I know enough handy people that would fabricate one it would be a lot quieter, brisk third party market and stands costing. Burke could could build this one at a scrap lumber like that it's been Birkt it will look like it's a six thousand dollar monitor on a twenty dollar scrap lumber stand, but who cares because the monitor still work. No. But the apple stand, it be floats. I forget, I don't need to justify it. It's the Ford GT, you know, four GT's half a million bucks, right car. Yeah. Well, no, you don't need to. And people don't buy Ford GT to drive around town. I didn't know there was any Ford that was half a million bucks. Well, I'm sorry. I over. At four hundred fifty thousand dollars. But if you really want to, you know if you want wheels, it would be like selling a car without wheels wouldn't it? But they do they sell a variety of different wheels on a car, right? You can get. Yeah. So that's like that. I see what I'm saying see you're going with this. Yeah. All the all the options Jack up the price a lot of car companies do this. They'll make a car base price was fifteen thousand time. You're out the door at forty even even make like Mercedes makes cars for racing that nobody's going to buy except maybe crazy millionaires at this is apples. This isn't that quite even that bad really. It's a it's a machine that a lot of pros I've spoken to drool over and someone actually by because they can justify. Right. Not me. When I come in here next week, they'll be one sitting on the test. No. No, no, no, no. So Kimmy ever have you ever heard of were in the world is Carmen, sandiego? I love that. We're in the world is Dr mom she just wants to do a quick check and. Oh, she's driving somewhere. Yeah. Let's find. Thank you. Hello. Dr mom, where are you calling the tesla supercharge? You're in Independence, Missouri. Harry Truman's hometown. You're gonna go see the, the old term in place now, because we're on kind of a scheduled one thing you can discuss with them. Yeah. And annoys the heck out of me on the Tesla's. At this point, you can't set up wake points in the navigation system. Really? All. That were ever you say you're going, you're going to be able to charge the car when you get there, it's like tonight, we're saying a little motel and sewing the cancer. There's no charge for their it says. Oh you'll get ten percent charge. That's a scary. That was not my experience. I think you're doing it wrong. I know there's not my experience with tesla navigation is it would tell you variety of places you could stop along the way never would leave you that low check in the settings there doctor mom, Dr mom reporting in from Missouri. Elizabeth palm desert California, Leila port, the tech highlights. Hi, Dr mom, I'm calling from the dark ages with windows, XP and a and a Dell laptop that I can't access. It is kinda the quintessential as they as the kids would say, first world problem, you know, my tesla won't let me let me charge. So what's your tell me about the real world? Elizabeth lives. No, not that. Case was lovely to give me and it has windows, three sixty five on it. Which I don't even know does that expire, you're after its purchase. It's office. Three sixty five is a yearly subscription. Okay. But I never installed it. I mean, it's supposedly came with it, but all I did was set the clock set a password, nobody at the library, where I went for help, who they have a computer person, but was unable to help me get anything going on it. So I brought it home set. It aside Zola's, let me tell you the, the bad news. Not really bad news. But whenever somebody gives you a computer. You buy one used anytime you gotta use computer, the oh, brand new brand new, and so I never used it. No. Oh, well that's nice of them. Yeah, but now they want a whole bunch of money to Reese that factory settings to get past. My not having recorded my path you forgot your pet everybody forgets their pets. Make you feel better once and then they remember it from that hot. 'cause it's like this is a pain, so most of the time, and I think these Dell's is the case when they set up this Dell they put in something called a hidden administrator account. And this is probably the real reason they do it, is it a windows. Ten machine do you even know? Because it was a number of years ago, I think pre it's really old. Well, maybe three years, I'm gonna guess don't be don't be all I know is window space, sixty five and that it's an inspiration fourteen. All I can tell you about it. So this is a complicated process. But if you have a friend, who has a computer that can Google this. I will tell you how hang on. So. It's it's a little complicated. Elizabeth? I'm sorry. I was dealing with a technical matter. It's a little complicated. But basically, there's a hidden account that has no password on the system. It's called the administrator Kadam because it has no password. All you have to do is log in is that and then you can change your password and you'll be able to, to something you remember and then you'll be able to get into it. So I mean he see how you log in to the hidden administrator you're looking for that. I wanna tell you listen to every week trying to learn that attended here in the tended to get savvy here. Well, I think it's working. You sound very savvy to me. Thanks to Kim. She was so sweet. She's great. Yeah, it should be able by default. So let me see how I can get the log in going, especially if it's a windows seven machine. Now. See says, in Nabl I you'll need to open a command prominent minister mode on. I don't wanna do that because you can't log in. Yeah. You do. Tr I mean, as I remember you could just type as the log in Adleman and hit return, it might not be Adleman that might be Edmonds zero or something like that. I'm trying to remember this. Do do do. And the problem is I don't know which version of windows you have. You don't know either. Probably ten if it's three years old. It's ten. It's not one of three sixty five as opposed to window. So the three sixty five thing is office, three sixty five that's out Microsoft Office word excel and all that. I didn't even know that. That's good. I unfortunately have to move on. I really want to help you do this. Well, hang on. Leila port, the tech, I know normally Scott Wilkinson, our home theater geek, would be here. But he is not today. He's taking the day off. Good man. He's, he's going to go into the country, as they say. But that's good because that means I have a little more time to work with Elizabeth. She's in palm desert. She was gifted computer Dell laptop. And when she when you first got it three years ago you created an account on their log in which you've since forgotten, so you can't use it crack. Correct. So when you turn it on it, it says it says your name. My name is air down the screener, then you hit return. And you don't know what the type after that for password. Right, under my name, but I don't have one to enter so and stopped right there. Some, you know. Trying to think of the best way to go about this, you could of course, reinstall windows on top of it. And that would be fine. Yeah. And it might not be a bad idea to do that. Okay. When windows ten first came out, everybody said EU, and then I've heard you say, recently that it's much better much better. But I think if, if you think it's three years old. That would have been windows ten territory. Okay. If it's for that, it would still be when could be windows, aid, much case you really do want. Because that's terrible. So just kind of depend it kind of depends on when exactly you got it. I'm really trying to think what the best procedure is. So if you have a friend with the computer, you could Google, enable hidden administrator mode, and it's many steps that's why can't really go through it on the radio. If you have a friend with a computer can come over show, you that's one thing you could try to do the other thing is he he or she can download a copy of windows. Microsoft makes that available only get it for Microsoft they call it. The windows, media creation tool and get the windows. Ten version, you might as well. And then it'll be on a USB key. So you need to sixteen gigabyte or more USB drives. I'm perfect that. So, so he's he or she will download it put it on that thumb drive at Microsoft explains that whole process on their windows machine. Then you bring it to yours. You plug it in and you boot into your windows machine. Now, all likelihood you'll have to press some specific keys to get it to boot to the thumb drive because normally just boots to the hard drive. Right. So on Dell. I would I there's a few different keys? It could be I would start with f twelve funky twelve that doesn't work function. Key one, you might have to reboot each time escape or delete. So those, those are the typical for f one f twelve escaper delete, but you wanna get into the boot menu or at least the system set up where you can change the boot order, because you wanna tell it boot up from this thumb drive, and then you will get into a windows installer. He'll just wipe your driving start over and it'll be just like it came from the factory give it a go. And you have a postcard that says office three sixty five activation. I think that's what you probably have right. Yeah. If you said it came with office when I opened the back side. What is it? I yeah. Yeah. So I pretty much stopped doing this. But for the last few years, Microsoft, which ship, this one year free trial of office, office is the word processor, the spreadsheet. You may not even need it. Wordprocessor. Okay. Okay. Honestly, they're great free choices from Google and Microsoft both. But if you feel like I like office three sixty five I think it's, you know, it's about seven or eight bucks a month, about one hundred bucks a year if you wanna keep using it, but you, you get, you'll get at least ninety days, maybe a year of free, depending on which, which I got but on that postcard, they'll be a serial number, if you still have it that you'll need to enter. But they real the real key is now somebody's saying, you could also take it to the best buy lawn dog saying, take it to the best buy down the road in palm desert, and they could probably unlock it for less than fifty bucks. It might be the easiest. I want a hundred the heck with them. Come on Keith squad. I'd do it for free Elizabeth, but I'm just not anywhere near you. So it'd be. Oh, you're welcome. Good luck. Yeah. It's a nice you can get a working. Somebody said you need a ute. What's a young person? You need a unit who can, of course, we'll sit down. Type real fast say there you go. Could do it just like that eighty eight ask Elliott some of the office stores, maybe Staples find a really it shouldn't be more than fifty bucks. Maybe they've upped the minimum. That's sad. If that's the case Alice Los Angeles, Leo LaPorte, the tech. I. Hello. I have a question on barris to say, because of your commercial just recently, the difference between remote PC and go to my PC very similar. Basically, same functionality pick the one you like best remote PC's, of course our sponsors. So it would make me it would me personal favor to me. If you would try but yeah, they're very, the whole idea of remote access by the way, Microsoft often ships windows with a remote access product, if you have a professional version, although I should warn anybody using Microsoft's RDP remote desktop protocol that there's a massive flaw in it in any version earlier than windows ten and you must update it before you use it. In fact, you must updated, even if you don't use it because while the, the bad guys are coming effect. Guests when you said, whether you're talking about remote. Remote PC and go to my PC. Both do similar things right. About the flaw. You were talking about with that in Microsoft's own remote desktop protocol that they built in. But if you have windows ten you don't have to worry about it. Okay. I'm on Ken. Yeah. Yes. So you'd have to worry about that, so there, so there are lots of ways to do this free. What you pay for when you get a commercial product like Romo PC is support and often performance, the inexpensive things like a the NC, which is an open source way to do this or Microsoft's remote desktop protocol sometimes are hard to use often are very slow. So it really comes down to how easy to use. It is, and how I've been using piece on your then you're fine until years, if you happy with it. That's good. Don't worry about you were advertising it. Better. I'll tell it's better because it's half the cost. Well, there's bad. Yeah. So, so if you get remote PC for the ten computers and you take the Leo deal. It's ninety percent ninety six fifty two bucks for a year. Go to my PC is about one hundred bucks for year. A little more aren't gonna see when I renewed my. A wind with them. And then maybe try them for a year, the new guy, you don't have to buy it to try it. You could even do that before you renew. Go to my PC just download remote PC and see if feels faster for you because I think it's faster. Okay. Great. Well, thank you. You're very welcome. Glad you asked. And I'm sorry about the horse Winnie. Well, I hope you're going riding. Unfortunately, I'm just doing a little bit of feeding and hugging and kissing maybe tomorrow. Did you bring carrots or apples, actually pellets? Oh, see. I was told you shouldn't feed horses carrots, and apples. Is that right? No. You can you can you just have to be careful not to do it by hand all the time. Melby keep my palm away open. So there's nothing but if. And so I have a lot of people putting their hands. Now no, they'll bite your taught her from baby to not move for lips. No matter what isn't that sweet. So this is a horse feed all the time. Well, I feed her in a bucket. You're smarty down to say side. Yeah, I love there you must read. There is a New Yorker article this week called how to draw horse. It's free online. Anybody who loves horses must read it. All right. How to draw a horse, actually anybody who loves lovers and people and great cartoons. It's it'll make you cry Leo LaPorte, the tech guy more. Because right after this. So chummy you don't like it. When people like so if I know I'm going to see horses. Actually, usually Lisa that does she'll always she'll try to remember put a carrot in her pocket or an apple in her pocket or something like that. Horses are so sweet. But you don't like it. If people do that, okay. I will remember chummy when I'm near your horse, not to feed Leyla port the tech, I eight esque Leo. That's the number. Do you wanna talk high tech Americans are now spending more time watching their devices than watching TV, if you look at the graph this is from emarketer feel look at the graph over the last few years? Imagine if you will my hand in the air TV up at the top my hand. Well below it. Mobile devices at the bottom, slowly, slowly, climbing getting closer and closer together, TV going down mobile device going up the cross point the point they crossed right now. Just happened just this minute where mobile device time is now more than TV time. US adults TV time, dropped nine minutes digital video time increased eight minutes. So there you go. But I just wanna say there should be a third line time spent listening to the radio. And I bet you that's way up there. Of course if you put podcast in there, I don't know. But I bet you a lot of I mean you're listening right now. Right. Eight ask. Leo. Eddie San Diego. You're next. Hi, eddie. Hello. Not a question. I'm kinda dinosaur. I'm running an old desktop with the tower windows, seven got a notice that Microsoft is gonna stop supporting when those seven January twenty twenty. Yeah. And I wanna stay with a wanna buy new power, stay with windows and just any recommendations for good manufacturers and also hardware, which innovation process or how much ram did I get? So if you get a new tower, obviously, you will this is one way to upgrade. This buying new hardware owner that's the old windows way, by the way. Most people never upgraded windows until they bought a new computer, then they'd get the newest version of windows, that was how people upgraded, you don't have to do that. You know, for ninety bucks you could buy windows ten. Yeah. This thing's getting old, okay? The PC industry needs you. So I don't I don't I do not want to discourage you, we need you to buy new computer every few years, people stopped doing that. What is wrong with you people? So when it comes to towers, I, I kind of like Dell to be honest with you. That's basically, and I put my money where my mouth is when we had to buy new workstations for editors. We were placed all of the workstations with Dell precisions. Those are probably higher, and then you need. But I would look at the Dell tower computers they still make them. And I think they're very good. And I think Dell support is good. I was thinking about amount of ram. How much should I get? What do you do? Oh, just general stuff. You know, cruise the internet, you know, Bank account ironically, ironically, the browser particularly chrome Firefox, cts browsers notorious ram. Hogs normally you say you don't out eight gigs. It'd be plenty for anybody, unless you're editing giant photos or videos, are, you know, making music with thousands of tracks things like that. I'd say you're sweet spot's probably sixteen gigabytes of ram. Give because chrome is a hog, if you like to keep chrome tabs open you like having the extra ram. Yeah. I do use chrome all the time. And the newest generation processor is Intel the latest is the Intel ninth generation processors, but for you, there's some other things you could consider you don't need the latest and greatest, you might get an eighth generation Intel, I wouldn't go far bond bought beyond that, or look at an AMD processor AMD processors are a little bit slower, but they're less expensive and a lot of times, you can get a better deal. I don't know if Dell sales AMD's. I bet they do, but it's certainly you don't need to spend like crazy. And if, if you're if you're just doing basic computing, I five an eighth generation I five rare would be fine that would be that would be as good enough for anybody. Okay. That gives me a place to start. Yup. Have fun. Thank you, always fun, buying a new computer. I like let's see HP Dell Lenovo. Those are the big three and all of a make nice nice tower cases. Honestly for most people. I wouldn't buy a windows PC these days, I wouldn't buy a MAC, either these days I unless you're doing something, you know, you need windows or MAC for like there's a program, you have to use, you know, for your business or because you like to edit photos or draw something if you if there's nothing like that, if it's just surfing, the net, getting Email, the kind of thing, most people do all the time. I think getting something based on Google Chrome OS to Chromebook, or if you wanna tower you gotta chrome box is probably it certainly more affordable, and probably a better idea. It's a lot more secure because it's a lot simpler and I see a lot of people getting ipads, and you I can't especially with a new ipad. Oh, with apple kind of giving better. Computing facilities to their ipad, making it more than just a glorified iphone. They can ipads a good choice again, more secure, less expensive and some places more convenient. Chat room says, Leo, you missed a bet you should have convinced him to buy when those new apple. Mac pros. I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy. You know, but people are going to buy MAC pros. No, they need it. This is like this. I have to have a MAC pro I need it in an prices. No object. In most cases, it isn't an object. They don't they're not looking at the price because either they're charging it back to a client, which actually means they wanna pay as spent as much as they can for the computer because they're gonna take ten percent or twenty percent off the top. So the more they spend the more than make. And even if they're not charging it back to the client. If you're working in the movie industry, editing film, spending, twenty grand or thirty grand on computers. No big deal. That's your main tool. How much do you spend for that combine harvester? I mean if this is the thing you use day in day out, don't cheap out, but for the rest of us were just using computers, kind of to access the internet to, you know, pay by stuff, pay bills. That kind of thing, a Chromebook is probably a better choice. Honestly. Dalen Santa, Monica, Leo LaPorte, the tech guy ideal. Hi, is it possible? I as I'm getting older. I use the computer that much. But one thing I do is I do some games. And I was wondering, is it possible to control an XBox PlayStation with a keyboard and mouse? Oh, that's interesting. So you but what would you do with the keyboard? I would use that instead of the controller I use right now I use a keyboard mouse on a MAC, two games that I play, and I'm not going to get another. Yes, the games won't support. It necessarily you can just plug in a keyboard mouse on the USB ports on an Xbox One, it'll work, fine. But not all games. Will men most games. They figure. Well, you got an XBox you wanna use the XBox controller? So you just have to try it in a per game basis. This is by the way, this is why gamers say, we're better. Because when you game on a PC, of course you use a mouse, and keyboard, and a lot of gamers believe that's better control. So sometimes, yes, you can sometimes it's supported. It's built into the operating system, because, honestly, XBox just windows and some games will let you use it, but not all games. So check with the game to make sure I okay. So it's game by day this game by game and, you know, you already have a keyboard and mouse, a plug into a USB port. See what happens. Okay, thanks. You're welcome. Thanks for calling. Yeah. It's just windows has many of the fact of the same facilities as windows. Eight ask, that's my number website, tech guy, labs dot com. Your comments are welcome. It's free. More of your calls right after this. Our show did they brought to you. Oh, I love my friends at DO, but digital ocean. Easily run production applications with digital ocean. It's, it's, you know, it's sometimes hard to explain but let me I'll give you an analogy. I talk about this all the time. I remember when Kevin rose, my good friends started dig so excited. I remember in fact, he called me said, we got our first server, but when in those days, not so long ago when you started your own start up and you've got your own server, what it meant is he rented. A location in a network operation center called a Colo a Colocation. He went out and bought a server brought it down into the Colo put it in the rack installed operating system. Configured it installed. His software crossed his fingers plugged in hoped it worked, and then he had to go back down and fix it whenever it didn't. And this is a expensive time consuming process. Every startup used to have to go through fast forward to the twenty first century to twenty nineteen. Now, you got digital ocean. Which makes it literally a minute away from if he'd were starting dig today, he would be a minute away from having dig up and running here. Let's go to my digital ocean, you want to. Let's create what they call droplet a cloud server. And by the way, these cloud servers have all kinds of useful features standard general purpose or CPU optimized, configuration. Perfect for building and testing. But even for production. You can get all the features you need. Let's let's make this really easy. Let's look at the they've got variety of operating systems as you can see Debbie incentive, west freebie SD of variety of container distribution. So if use Docker they support Cooper Netease and then they have the one button one click marketplace. So I think probably he was probably he would today he'd be using node, right? No, no J. Let's set up a lamp stack with no J s now I'm gonna just gonna use. I'm cheap. I'm gonna because we're going to build this initial application. I don't need to see you up is. But you can get it. In fact, I'm going to I'm going to be really cheap and I'm just going to get the five dollar month gigabyte one. CPU twenty-five, gig storage terabyte of plan, you know, if I need more, I can easily upgrade, you can have backups a buck on automatically back it up, actually, it's less. It's twenty percent of the droplet price, whatever that works out. Two so could actually be less. But for me, it'll be a buck Amman's. I'm gonna add block storage, if I want, I don't need it pick the server. Pick one near you. If you want to add six or monitoring private networking. I always turn on this H. So I have access to my SSH key and I'm going to name this. Let's call it dig five and I'm gonna create now watch this, because this is what's so awesome in less than a minute. Something that took Kevin weeks thousands of dollars. I'm gonna have a server up and running ready to run my application with the public IP address a lamp stack all the tools, I need you get Docker get lab Jenkins, plus c panel WordPress. Whatever you want could figure it. However, you need predictable pricing. They've got cloud firewalls monitoring alerts team accounts, full DNS management, four nines up time, twelve global data centers. I'm talking digital ocean. DO dot CO slash twit. If you go today, you'll sign up for a free fifty dollars credit DO that CO slash twit digital ocean. Is transforming the way startups get started and businesses run on the internet. And look at that. I got my service that easy DO that CO slash. Hey, hey, how are you today, Leo LaPorte here? The tech. Time talk computers. The internet home theater, digital photography smartphone smart watches. You know anything with a chip in it, we talked tech here each weekend. I hope you will. If you have a question, or commoner suggestion, call me, eight eight ask Leo is the phone number eight, eight two seven five, five, three six toll free from anywhere in the US or Canada. Outside that area. You can still call just use Skype out to do it. There's a website free to use. They're all week long. So if you hear something or you can't remember or maybe just wanna listen to an old show has passed shows audio and video are up there. It's tech guy labs dot com. Tech guy labs dot com. Well, this could have been a big headline, Facebook, investors vote to fire. Mark Zuckerberg sixty eight percent of outside investors want Zuckerberg out up from fifty one percent last year except. Mark Zuckerberg has sixty one percent controlling interest in the company. Just goes now out that can do it. Sorry by. Eighty three percent of outside shareholders back to proposal to scrap Facebook's dual class share structure. See the way it works. If you buy stock in Facebook, your class, eight shareholder, you get one vote if you're Mark Zuckerberg your class b shareholder, you get ten votes, a share. Ten votes. Sucker Berg happens, don't seventy five percent of the class b stock. He's got sixty percent of the voting power. Even though even though the shareholders, overwhelmingly sixty eight percent wanted him out because. Yeah, well, that's nice. Why even bother giving them a vote? Thanks for thanks for your input. So I guess Marcus, I'm reading a wonderful book just came out by one of my favorite sci-fi authors. Neil Stevens is called fall or dodge in Jalan, one of the things very interesting about it. It's a near future starts in the present. But it becomes a near future story. The internet becomes so unreliable. For variety reasons, terms of facts that nobody really uses it as an information source anymore. It becomes so overwhelmed with fake news that anybody who has any money hires professional editors to filter out the junk, so that you can use the special little part of the internet. That's accurate and ignore the rest. The unfortunate sad side of this is the vast majority of people who can't afford private editing are stuck with an internet. That is loaded with such garbage that the nation has fractured into many, many pieces each believing different sets of facts. Maybe it's not such a distant future. It's, it's a little closer. It's clearly Neil Stevenson's commentary, and we're not there yet. Right. For the most part, we can all agree on certain common facts, but it does kind of make sense you know, because of conspiracy theories, and their unique power to sway us, and the power of the internet, you know, there's a significant number of people didn't used to be, but they're back now who believe the earth is flat. In contrary to all evidence, by the way, if you've ever been in the airplane, you can see the earth is not flat. But that okay, contrary to all evidence there people believe the flat, and it turns out, they got this idea from watching YouTube videos. That that's actually this used to be a thing, flatter society. And it quickly became a joke because this is we got satellites and space travel and airplanes people could see for themselves. It is not really flat, but YouTube brought it all back, and that in many, many other crazy ideas, and, you know, I think part of the problem is YouTube recommendation engine. This is really the problem is article in the New York Times today about a young man, twenty one year old who became radicalized was just completely, like your next door neighbor, but became completely radicalized because he started watching YouTube and started following the recommendations. He the making of a YouTube radical ca Caleb. Cain was a college dropout looking for direction. He turned to YouTube soon. He was pulled into a far-right universe watching thousands of videos filled with conspiracy theories, misogyny, and racism, and now he says, I was brainwashed great article by one of our best tech reporters Kevin Roose. It's a fascinating story, not so much about mister Cain. But about the power of YouTube, and the YouTube recommendation engine, I feel like they should just turn that off. That's it gets. This is what gets you to a lot of trouble you go there to, you know, you search for something, you watch it fine. But then it says, well, people like this, like this, and we've seen this happen time and time again, you go, there to, you know, I'm interested in Kito, genyk diets. So I watched that. And then it says, you might be interested in this and it's a it's a vegetarian video couch, you might be interested this. It's a vegan video. It's more and more extreme watch that. And pretty soon you're down a rabbit hole, and you're doing some protesters, just the other day out of town. They went to liberate chickens from chicken farm. They liberated them which some people call stealing. But it you know matter of. I guess, depends what YouTube videos you're watching. Eight ask Leo's the phone number eight two seven five five three six. Let's talk to Nancy in Los Angeles. Hello, nancy. Hi, great. Thank you very much, welcome. I hear you. Well, how do you hear me? Oh, very well. Been waiting. You're very patient. Thank you. What can I do for you? Well, I bought a small H P laptop smaller than like big on that I use on the desk. And I didn't realize it said a streaming laptop, and I didn't understand or know what that meant. So I don't either. What is a street? This is not a common term. What is streaming Lipton, HP stream laptop? Oh, it's the brand name the stream. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So what I think it does is it connects to the internet through why fi okay in your house or your office? I don't. Have cable or the WI fi. I do everything through my phone and through my ipad. So I have a big laptop on my best that I talked to my ipad, your laptop uses the internet connection, your ipad has yes or my phone or your phone, and of course, you're paying the cell carrier for that internet connections. That's where you get your. Yeah, you can do the same thing with the HP stream. But, you know, I I'm not set up right. And so, I can't I've only been on it a couple of times, and I, I don't know how to get on every time the right the correct way. So the trick is to turn your ipad or your iphone into what we call a hotspot. Okay. I have that I'm the only setting I can't walk you through it, but you get the idea you're going to go into the settings. You're gonna turn on hotspot, what you will get then you'll see in the settings is the name of the hotspot, which will be something. Nancy's iphone, whatever. Okay. And then you'll get a password that's to secure it because you don't want Joe next door using your hotspot. It's costing you money. So you'll need that both the name of the pot spot in the password that you go to the stream, and you click that little WI fi con in the lower right hand corner, the one that looks like a radar kind of the triangle, and it'll, and you say, if, if your phone or your ipads, near enough, it should show, the name of it, Nancy's iphone or whatever it is. You click on that and you'll enter in the password, and as long as you're phone. The one that it says on the phone, or the ipad, remember, I said it will give you the name of a access point. It will also give you a password you need to use to log into that access point. And as long as your phone or ipad remains in hot spot mode. You'll have wifi access on your stream got it. Okay. I get it now. So that's the password. I was looking for from my phone. It's why fight Smith. You know it's very confusing. I believe me, I understand Nancy, and I see this all the time, family members and so forth. Password. Is a can mean many, many things you have many passwords, which password to any, my apple password to, I need my windows password. What password are you talking about? And it's, it's not immediately clear. And I completely understand that we need a better way. That's the term has been highly overloaded. You know, websites have passwords app. Have passwords. Your wifi access point has passwords your to make it even more complicated. Your WI fi router has a password that isn't the WI fi access point password for while wifi router companies put a button, push button, remember that w PS push the button on the WI fi access point. And then press a button on your phone, or your device, and they would just they would exchange. The information turned out that was hideously insecure. I mean. I mean, appallingly insecure. So it's been removed from most of ice in effect. If you still have a WPN button and automatic one button connection button, you might want to disable that in the software router, because it's a bad idea as one might actually if you thinking about it with guess. Eighty anyway. I'm glad I could help. The stream is a very inexpensive basically. It's HP's, and they're going to be many of these response to Chromebooks, everytime, Chromebook, simple, cheap lightweight just basically for surfing the net. Microsoft wants to do this, they killing them that they're losing business of the Chromebook, so Microsoft's gonna be releasing something called windows light that will be that, you know, really dumbed down version of windows and companies like HP stream is two hundred bucks or selling cheap computers that are basically Chromebooks, but the problem, I have with it. It's still windows. And honestly, if you're buying, this, you don't need windows you should get a Chromebook could be much more secure and much more straightforward, and just as inexpensive, eight ask Leo. Leo LaPorte, the tech guy more of your calls coming up after this word from our sponsor. The earth. Yeah, you nailed it. The earth is flat in a round ball. It's flat. If you open up the ball. Oh, the edges curved. I get. That's what looks curved. It's fun. It's so much fun. Leo LaPorte the tech. I eight ask Leo. The phone number. Eight eight eight two seven five five three six. Chris. Hey Chris, in Miami. How you doing in Miami you how many cups of coffee of you had today, Chris? Well, let's start with the fact that you only had one full Cup so far. I'm in at least six cups. He's just a just a word of warning for those of you listening. No, this is my second Cup because I have one in the morning when I get up I have a cappuccino a cappuccino, which isn't even that caffeinated Reich, and then I'm having a brut Cup now. So that's all. And that'll be it if I have any more than that, I'll be like you won't be able to sleep. Do you sleep? Well, because I have to get ready to come on this show. So I should cut Nick, we make a full pot. Oh, stop your perfect just as you are Chris. I really am. And that's why Leo. I like you just the way you are one. You're one amazing fella. I gotta tell ya. We're lucky on this planet to have you. You know, you're always way too complimentary Chris. No need. I like you. Even if you're not nice to me, but, but you are. So I still like for those reasons I'm just I'm just being here. I don't want anything. I don't need anything. I'm just saying I, I think you're a bit of the ball, always, okay? And it was love fest must end you're making people cringe. Oh, well, we don't do that. What can I do for Chris? All right. Well, I right now I have we're getting a new wine back. We're looking at a twenty one. Chris do you should buy? The MAC pro. Yeah. Right. Thirty five thousand dollars. Let's just my guess it could be less could be thirty two thousand when I thought that. And they released that I got so excited. I'm with withdrawing my Cup of coffee because you've always talked about wanting this. I've been saying for years, bring back the cheese grater, it is. I was so excited. I called six friends and said Leo finally got. And now I can't afford it. It's so expensive though. It's actually not that I can't afford it. I could buy cars I could afford it. It's not that I couldn't afford it. It's that there's no reason for me to spend that much money on a computer. I foolishly foolishly bought the I MAC pro which started at five thousand dollars. I'm done. I'm done apple. Don't don't be throwing any more expensive. Computers. At me. I am done. I'm. Too much. The stand alone is like a thousand dollars. And I'm like, I know is that funny the monitor stand, but it's really good monitor stand Chris now. It is. Yeah. It's amazing. What it does. I know but. Thousand dollars though. I know it's nuts. The real the real point. They should never have announced it. They, they realize now, tactically, that was just dumb because the people are going to buy don't care, and that was the real point. But they for some reason, they couldn't they couldn't keep from telling people it was a thousand bucks. Sometimes discretion is a good thing. Just keep a. So what can, so you're gonna buy a regular? I MAC, I'm gonna go with probably twenty one and a half to a twenty seven inch. But right now my back is running out of memory, and, and I have a Saturday in here, one terabyte, what's stupid, but I wanted to ask you about pricing because I know I could probably sit here, all afternoon funding pricing, but the place down here called proactive. They want to install an SSD for five hundred dollars, and then another three hundred dollars for like installation transfer data. Eight hundred dollars seems like it's a little bit excessive. So I said, you know what I'm gonna call Leo? They said go ahead. I said, because I know he'll give me the real answer. Here's the here's the issue, of course, that hard drive by itself is not that expensive. How big is it a terabyte to terrible? The one I have in my MAC, but the one I wanna have installed is two terabytes. Well, those are expensive state. So let's say two terabytes SSD. You're talking for five hundred bucks for the drive alone. Here's why. It's so expensive to put it in an I Mak just go and watch a couple of YouTube videos on upgrading the driving your MAC. And this is what you will never want to do this. First, you need a big suction Cup. This sounds like I'm joking. I am not know what to do this. You have to use a big suction Cup to remove the glass on the front of the screen. You get it too hard drive from the front through the glass. It is an nightmare procedure. I actually did this once. Well, I had one of my engineers, do it. And I was watching her a Gog. I thought, okay, this is not something ever wanna do my general recommendation when you buy a MAC is get it with the drive you need. Now, the I'm ex you can install more memory fairly easily. There's just a little hatch underneath on most of them. But but, you know, get it with a drive you need. Don't the aftermarket drive will not be cheaper just because the installation process is nuts. And do get an SSD that's gonna make it much, much better. You'll be much happier apple charges. A lot may may even charge. Eight hundred bucks for two terabyte drive. My guess is they do. So maybe that you recommend recommend sorry, here's what I would recommend. External also external. That's my recommendation, get a decent drive for internal big enough to hold MAC OS in your programs. No more than five twelve gigs. What brand did you suggest the apple one? Get the apple one internal. And then you can get in there many, many choices. I use, you know, Seagate's there are fancy drives from go technology, designed to go with max that doesn't matter. Just get a thunderbolt three. External. Now tell you what I got Chris. I would probably not recommend this. But I you know, I like to recommend for apple stuff going to other world computing, Maxine dot com. Because they sell external drives, and they have a variety of external drives and, and actually what you want. Ideally, if you get a thunderbolt three drive with that new MAC, it will be as fast maybe even faster than the internal drive. And that's why I say you don't need a big internal drive. You get internal drive just for the operating system and apps. And then you put all your data on an external drive. And then maybe you have to maybe you have two of those if you want for backup that kind of thing, but they make thunderbolt three you can look at their thunderbolt three drives, they make variety of thunderbolt three drives the one I bought was a little pricey. And I probably in fact it doesn't look like do they still sell. It looks like they might not sell it anymore. It was. I mean just look at my account 'cause I don't remember the exact name, but it was. Toys that you buy. This is a toy. This is a good toy. And you know what I do? And this was my mistake is sometimes I do ever. Make an impulse purchase Chris. Yes. Especially if you're hopped up on caffeine. Yeah. No, I'm never gonna let you forget. He sells coffee folks. That's why he's he loves his coffee. Let me just look at my own on let me just you my orders here. I'll tell you what I bought it was crazy expensive twelve hundred eighty three bucks. Wow. For the thunder blade ultra high performance thunderbolt three storage solution. It used that you actually, you okay, get ready for this, by the way, that's two terabytes Levin, ninety nine. Okay. So it's expensive, but it's but it's under both three full speed forty gig about forty gigabytes a second. So it's very very. It's great. Yeah, it comes in a pelican case, it's comes with specially designed just to hold it pelican case. And with a special certificate of offensive city has all sorts of crap. I have never once used it. I've had it for six months. I have never once used it. I bought it in January. And I just it's beautiful actually it's less expensive now. It's nine ninety nine for two terabytes. So I paid two hundred bucks extra 'cause I got it right when it came out. But it is it is it is a really good X so thunderbolt three costs a lot more than just the bear drive. And this isn't a very, you know, rugged enclosure with heat sink. It's stackable. It's daisy chain -able. It's a really nice external drive and I will eventually use it. I just haven't gotten around to visit. Yeah, it's got three your warranties. So if, if, if you want the toy go to Maxine dot com and look at their thunderbolt drives. They're not all that expensive, but there, but you want. Ideally, one that will use the full funder bolt three throughput, which is forty gigabytes a second. That sounds nicely is good as these, the reasons, so expensive, it has to envy, MD, two drives inside and the thunder, three interfaces really, really fast. So that's, that's what you're paying for. Okay. Small drive inside data drive outside. That's always the best way to go with. Good. Have fun Chris. Thanks, appreciate spend that money drink that you. I learned from the best. I know I got such a bad habit. I don't even want to tell you the camera. I just don't even ask, don't ask Johnny jet. What kind of camera? But on ask I told you Johnny is back home. I am. I don't understand. I thought you said you were going last week. You said you're traveling. I did go only go away for a night or two every time now. But so last week when I got off the show, the next day, I went to check out the new Disney spent the night. Did you go to the Star Wars, of course? Actually jealous. I wasn't really jealous of all your great travels before. But now I am. So you, you went, and you'd have to wait in line with the people. I was at a private party, believe it or not. They shut down Disney for the IP international Powell. It's every year, they had this massive conference six thousand people bring in it's mostly people from international because they're bringing in five billion dollars worth of business to the US, and they're just they roll the red carpet out for these guys. And this, it was actually a blue carpet, but, you know, even with the private party, everyone just made a beeline, I don't care about there could be Warren Buffett. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, back from the dead standing together talking. And I would say, where's galaxy's edge some people were running. I ran into one of my buddies. He was. I gotta get like. The private party. There was a line to get a ninety minute line to get on that ride. Mugler's run. Did you not get the line? I'm not gonna wait ninety minutes. The party was line three and a half hours. Not you didn't get on the smuggler's run, by the way, if you, if you next time it's worth the ninety minute white, because the line is the best line ever it has if you're Star Wars fan, it has more our wars Easter eggs in it. I mean, there was a great article on polygon I think, or maybe it was. Yeah, I think paulie gone documenting. As many of the these guys were crazy Star Wars fan, so they recognize there's this is something to see. It's the best line waiting series of all time. You name it. So actually, I should make their app. If you go, you gotta download their app because there's little things you can do with it. Is there a bird in there with you, actually that is that is? That is scheduled apple the week. It's called dawn. Don chorus. D. A W N. And I just tweeted it put it in the chat, this people who live in the country because we hear birds. When I wake up, I love it, now, some of the birds are not the best birds. They're like, they're you know. They send us their worst birds crows the peacock guard. On course. But no. But that's what I'm saying. Maybe I need this app. This happens a free app. It's on Android, and it's actually developed by the Carnegie museum of natural history in the innovation summit innovation studio. Sorry, I got my mind on the summit still. But it's all birds native to the northeastern U S and pretty songbirds not crows. He's actually, so you there's twenty birds. You can choose from the five to doing. There's a mistake here. They have a blue Jay on the icon. Those Bluejays are not notoriously. Beautiful there Jay's. I mean they're beautiful. Okay. But they don't sound good. No. I put one on, but you can eliminate the blue Jay from my done. Course this looks Butte. What an I j go ahead play. Weekdays, not that great who wants to hear blue Jay when they wake up. A Baltimore Oriole. Let's hear some more birds. We have a Mazda bird who sings all night. Drives me nuts, Brown creeper one bird. Can you hear that? Sounds nice. So anyway, my sister told me it's a favorite app. And so this is free to Carnegie Mellon gives it away. They do. And you know what's great? I mean especially when I'm traveling is when I'm using my alarm, the most because I'm in a minute routine when I'm home, but when I'm traveling all set at wake up to the, you know, my phone alarm, and my heart's are beating so much faster because it's blaring so having alarm like this it makes it a lot more peaceful to, to wake up. So I recommend it for travelers in. And if you want us news, you can just shake your your phone. It was shaking and. It was shaken snooze for five minutes. Nice, don. Course I'm putting it on my phone right before you always test it before you do it, because it says it will work on silent, but actually I just got the notification now and it just showed up. But I had to press a button for it to make the noise. So. Relying on it for your alarm, but you have an alarm as well. I mean right. You don't. Of course you can both do both. So this Star Wars thing, forget the Star Wars. Nobody cares about the birdsong. All right. I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna give you pass. You didn't wanna wait in line for smugglers. Run. Waited in it. They said they ruined their whole night, because it was ninety minutes, the whole yard would have been the whole party. That's why you had to run at every, you know, when they closed down dizzying everyone's there. They have all the bands. They have free food free drinks. I mean you roll up get a lobster roll whatever you wanna do. Other roll over Star Wars. What is wrong with you and a corn dog and you don't you wanted? At least look like Admiral Akbar. What that is. I know because this is why you didn't go check out. Did you did at least in the bar? I did go in that bar. Yes. Yeah. I definitely did. That's awesome. Saver because you have to pay two hundred and forty dollars to buy a lifesaver or not. If you do if you do go in, you can bring two guests. Look, how does it? Look. I mean is it feels like you're feel? Yeah, planet it doesn't feel almost feels like a movie set, but I tried the milk, the green and blue milk. It's really yellow milk. They say green yellow to me less. I'm colorblind tastes like a slush puppy, but it's made with non dairy. I tried the popcorn and they have they call it a grain. A pot grains. They don't call it popcorn so horn in the universe. Galaxy along time ago far far away. There's no corn because the Indians invented it, you should know that I should know that. I I was a big fan of Star Wars growing up. I watched you know, empires, the ridgeville Star Wars Empire Strikes, Back return of the, and then I stopped watching them, so jealous, I really wanna see this just opened earlier this month, and people are going crazy about it. But yeah, the lines are very long. That's why I was kinda thinking, maybe you'd want to take advantage of this special offer. You know, I just did not want to wait ninety minutes and you have to right now. You need reservation to get into that. It's crazy, but it's going to open the public in a couple of weeks, right? Yeah. Eighty one days or steel not in our group. But I've read later that people been stealing the sports that they have. The forks. Dollars. That's terrible. So now they're gonna make plastic forks out of it. Awful. We are off and be they, they can be Star Wars. Galaxy edge will be opening in DisneyWorld August. Twenty ninth is now open land. And man, it looks so so jealous what I learned was there. You know what Disneyland's called what the happiest place on earth? Yes. Trade is Mark Walt Disney ninety fifty-six DisneyWorld called something different. The less happy place. No magical place. Oh. I have a soft spot for Disneyland. I, I really do want to see the new Star Wars wasn't Star Wars, literally I, I was going on these other rise. And there was no one else around. I could've road I road, the, the log ride by myself, and had a pitcher, and I was going to a couple of my friends, didn't they got. So, so I was just doing the other ones around. But. Called me before, did you need a plus one. I would have flown allow it I'm press, I'm in the media. Well then you would have gotten in. So I, I hear I hear they treat media people pretty well Johnny jet. I don't know. You've gone down a peg in my estimation. I hate to say Johnny jet dot com. No. I'm just kidding. That sounds like. Sounds like a lot of fun, Johnny jet, the website, lots of information there. I hope there's a pictures at least. Instagram. Follow me on Twitter to thank you, Johnny. Jack's gonna kill you. When he's old enough to figure out what you did. Actually, you know, his generation that probably won't be Star Wars fans. No, not on your generation not even my generation. I was in adult when it came out. So it didn't doesn't res- honestly, doesn't resonate that much with me. When did it come out seventy seven seventy seven? I was young lad. I was twenty one. I remember waiting in line to see it and loving it. But. I think if you were twelve or eight when you saw it I, I remember seeing it. Yeah. Then it's going to imprint like a baby. Duck. I love it. I. Fortunately, at the party. I made some context hopefully I can go down again. I feel like I should call the people at Disney because they do have a very good media, palm happy to share the Email that I have, what I you know, I do is pay full price, because I'm an idiot, also because I don't want, I don't want to be, I don't want any attention. I just wanna go. I don't wanna have to be walked around with a Representative and all that stuff. Right. I mean the thing and when we got there it was an evening sun was just going down. So it made even more magical felt more like a again, another planet because I think it was dark. I'm very interested in the Imagineering involve, for instance they calculated all the eyesight, I lines, right? Everything is you're in the rides. And they only built stuff where you can see it. So if you look from above there's like it's all kind of half done from above. Okay. It's all done. Well, why build something people can't see? Yeah. So, so they were very careful to watch the islands. Just fascinating genius. They put into this stuff. I put a few pictures on my Instagram. Swipe it but there's one of me RTD to and excellent fighter. And very the Lee, Johnny. You know, me and our two, that is a that is an inflow you're going to be an influence or you keep this up. You can, by the way, you can buy that RTD to for twenty five thousand shredded or whatever they call it credits. They don't call it money because they don't want you to think. Because they don't want you to think about what it really costs. So you can build your own Android. And that's I think it's one hundred bucks for that. Oh, that'd be fun. Yeah. Let me see here. We'll look at that Woody that's cool that your new ride. No. That's the legal house hotel. We had an elevator in our room. Those are the other day. But anyway, there's any swipe. Oh, it's pretty isn't it? The line. I mean I know it's crazy. Even with a party. Ause closed. But it would be wall to wall people if weren't. Right. And then if you swipe some more, you'll see. You'll see others, but there's that nice why they re I really impressed with the did you, did you knock on it to see if it's made a plastic, I did not on. It knocked on one of the walls. It was I don't know if it was plastic, but it was definitely not rock. So anyway, this is so cool, Johnny. I am so happy for you. Even if you didn't appreciate it at all. This will at least go in the millennium falcon. I did not go in. That was the line. There was. You know I got I got more things to do a road. Lobster roll. Ride the haunted haunted house. I would, you know, that's kind of what I would probably have done is gonna pirates of the Caribbean and haunted house. It just kept writing. I love those rights, but the problem is, there's no way to get into smugglers running for less than four or five hours, really that long. Sure, will be I don't know. It's not open yet. Really? I mean you have to buy tickets, but once it's open to the public, I'm sure we're going to be down there. You know, we're going to spend a week in Venice. So soon, I can't remember if you to have lines. Yes this time. I can come down there. You come to our house. Or we could meet at a place you just let me know around get together for sure. Thank you, Johnny. Lael Leila port. The tech I o. That is a. I don't know what you would compare that with an invitation to a private event. At Disneyland when they opened the stores. I mean that's like that is like, that's gotta be the invitation of the year at the decade. Eight ask Leo eight two seven five five three six tech in San Diego. And our chat room says, I own six PC's ranging from sentry. No, those were the days in the nineties, right to the I nine the latest ninth generation until processors chart which showed which processors are vulnerable to side. Channel attacks side, channel our tax are the things like spectre meltdown, the take advantage of a feature. Intel started using in the late nineties on that sentry. No, actually, I think called speculative execution. And. All of the processors that use speculative execution all of them are vulnerable, so you don't need a chart, but I will recommend a free program from my friend, Steve Gibson, G R, C dot com. It's called inspector. I N S P E C T Ari playing on the name of the vulnerabilities the specter vulnerability, which lets you look at your system because it's not you know, you also have to know whether it's been patched Microsoft is put out patches Intel has put out patches you need to know what the status of your system. Honestly, I wouldn't worry about these side channel attacks, unless you're running a server and you allow many, many people to buy space on your server as a home user, these are not issues, the too hard to attack where the vulnerability really hits, though is in a shared environment where you have many people, you know when you. When you, you know, by hosting from a web host, you're not on your own personal, computer unless you pay for that. It's pretty expensive. You're on a shared system with other websites that are on there. But if one of those websites should be malicious may be possible. Thanks to these flaws for them to get information like your password. Log in from you using these attacks specter meltdown, there's been more since so this inspector looks at your microcode sees if it's patches patched, specifically for the specter vulnerability, but if it's vulnerable to Specter's Foale neral all the rest. So this is a free program. Steve's really great guy for this stuff. He gives away a lot of stuff like this. You could Google. I N. S. P. E. C T, R, E, probably find it, but it said, GR seat dot com. Line four, Bob in corona, California. Hi, Bob Hill LaPorte the tech. Hey, how you doing? I'm well, how are you? Very good. Thanks for taking my call. My pleasure. I'm so glad you called. What can I? Thank you for old on what can I do for the worries perhaps, making more difficult than it is. But I've got the cut the cable questions or yes. Okay. Which I've already done. Yeah. Those darn cable providers. It's such a good feeling to call up the cable companies say, I won't be needing you. But that feeling goes away rapidly when I figured that. Well, maybe I will need them for internet access. Who did you get your internet access from precisely the personal the cable cable connected to me? Yeah. And by the way, then they charge you more. If you're not gonna get TV we're gonna raise your right. Yes. That's happened. Okay, what's your? I actually called you maybe once ago when my dog's going crazy, too. Get an answer a while back. And I just never got around to get back what else? The so the cable that actually came in via the internet via spectrum was my provider. Okay. Again, they still have me connected for the internet. Yeah. And the line, there's the line in it was to single line grounding mechanism. And then that goes to a splitter and clearly the splitter. The one line you could see stapled on those fees by internet with web access. Right. The second splitter was going into the house line. It's still connected. That's your TV that's your that goes to your all your TV cable drops. Okay. And there's only one line, so maybe it's split or link. They'll have more splitters down the line. If you have multiple cable ports. Okay. So it's, it's still currently hooked up. And I bought one of those fancy Amazon get your own. Broadcast antennas supposed to be really nice when it's still in the box. I've never tap into. I guess my question is, is that a simple matter of poking out one line that is being split. Could you use the old cable line because it's co ax, which is what that antenna wants for your intente. Yes. That's a really good question. I don't know the answer to in Syria. I mean, if it were a straight shoot in other words, if it weren't further split. Absolutely co Xs co ax. It's impeding might not match. So you might want to check to see what that antenna wants. So the resistance of the cable is, is a direct result of the gauge of the cable, and so you want to I if look in the box and see what the instructions say about what kind of cable you can hook up to it. If it includes that kind of cable, okay. Good. The other issue might be the splitters, because, of course, splitters attenuate the signal by splitting that cable. And then putting it down different things. So, you know, the best thing to do is try it. Okay. Yeah. It's one of those things, you know, the, the wife of San are you ever gonna take that thing out of the box? And yeah, I guess for the last, you know. I mean it should I mean it's just a all that co X is a copper wire leading from the intent to whatever you're putting that in ten into the house, you know, probably tuner of some kind so theory, it should work just fine. The only issue would be the amount of the impede and so that cable. You wanna make sure that it's if it's too much won't get much of a signal down at, and then the, the splits on the cable might impacted as well if you can go to the crawlspace, you know, depends where the splitters are there in the wall disconnect any, any, you know, cable drop, you're not using because the closer, you have to a straight shoot the better. But I would just try it almost certainly will work. It's only question of how well it will work. Well, you get a great signal or will you get a weak signal there. The chat room is saying and words, I don't understand. But I will repeat them as, if I do that it should be able to use these two different kinds of co ax RG fifty nine or r g nine. RG fifty nine is fine. RG six has lower loss for lower runs. There you go. So chances are it'll just work because it's copper, copper, you gotta copper line leading the only question is how, you know, they'll be interference or if the signal will be degraded a little bit. But it should work, which had like there is your g six solid cook quad shield action through free. If you could have that you're going to straight shoot right from the intensity into the house, that would be the best maybe got that you don't know. Okay. Ben your turn Leo LaPorte, the tech hyphen. Lille. I have a question for you, sir. I have I they Acis laptop windows. Running windows ten nice been getting those blue frowny faces blue frowny faces the blue screen of. His it happened all the time. How often you get, you know, nowadays windows, ten frowny faces are much less likely. But how often are you getting the Frank face? I sometimes my computer either, like when with, like one or two locations. Ankle, Simon screen, it will get it. And then I'll come back screen there. So it's almost certainly an issue with either hardware or a driver. And I'll say that, because the modern operating systems and this includes of course, windows, ten MAC OS to, if a program crashes, you won't get a blue screen of death. You'll just the program will go away. You might get error alert but, but you won't crash the operating system. The only thing that can cause a blue screen is something operating a very low level user, that's driver or hardware, if it's just sitting there try closing all your programs and just let it sit there if it's just sitting there that almost certainly means is a hardware area. Power supplies, flaky, maybe your ram that's hard to diagnose. Not likely to be a driver error because if you're not doing anything, right? But it could be it could be what we call a memory leak in a driver. So the other thing you could do is put in, you know, update, your drivers make sure that you've got the latest version of all your drivers. Three stop coats. That's, that's not useful. I'm sorry, they give you that as if it makes a difference. Nothing you can do with it, because it doesn't window when a computer crashes. It's, it's so stupid. It doesn't really know what caused the crash the reason you're getting those codes. Those are debugging codes that if you were the guy wrote the operating system, and you're the guy who wrote the program, and you knew exactly what was going on behind the scenes that Eric owed might help you debugging. But otherwise, no nothing much you can do with. It doesn't even tell you what crashed. What do they say? Just out of curiosity. Like. Right. Street enters or like critical down. Yeah. Thank you very much for the useful information. You're so helpful windows. You're basically saying you crashed. Wrong. Sorry. You can you can go. You can look, you can Google them. But those are so generic that's not gonna really tell you anything. So the only resign ask if you'd see if you saw driver name. You know, then maybe would definitely try to upgrade that drivers see if that was the issue. I think it's probably I think it's probably a hardware issue. So, for instance, I'll give you some for instances. If your power supplies, flaky like it's dying. Suddenly, the power drops briefly just enough. And then it comes right back, except that, that then causes something else, like your memory, not to refresh which then causes the operating system to go. I can't I I I just can't. And then it's throws up an error that says you're. I don't know. I was looking at the registry and something went wrong. So you're era doesn't say anything about the power supply? But in fact, that's what caused it. You see. I'm saying. Same thing if you if you have ram that's flaky, or not fully seated, you know go through everything. Did it just start happening now? It's been happening for a couple months now. Yeah, I just thought it was like one of those, like one time in once in a lifetime. Yeah, it's not it's not unusual. Have it once in a while? But if it starts happening again and again. So there is a Microsoft troubleshooter for blue screen errors. That's it's a support dot Microsoft dot com and it's tech article one four two three eight. I don't think he's going to be that helpful, but you could do it. You could run through it. It wouldn't you know, give you feeling of doing something. The problem is, as I said the error. May not give you information about what caused it might be something that was at the end of the cascade. Right. And these are those are really hard to diagnose it could literally be just a CPU timing error could be that, you know, so but they do they do give you some samples and they and they will walk you through it, and maybe it will help understanding maybe that maybe it'll give you place to look. Okay. But it could be overheating. I don't think it's overheating because the, the machines are idle when you're when you're when this happens. Right. You just do not using it. Well, I'll just be sitting there just like watching like who on chrome browser. Oh, without without anything else running. But no, that's running. That's running a lot that's working hard that could cause overheating, Erin and could be video could be video air. So I do think about what you're doing if you can make it happen. Then you could figure out what it is. You've got to be able to make it happen. We'll make the fans run at high speeds. Yes. When I absolutely it should make the fans that's to be like right before it happened, the phantom running, like super hunt. Yeah. Yeah. It's working hard. So it sounds like an overheating problem, actually. If if it always happens in the fans are running hard. It's definitely overheating problems. So you wanna make sure you've got good airflow through there. You don't have a bunch of dust. That thing is clean. Yeah. That's a so, yes. Watching video it. That's a lot of work. You're not doing anything you're relaxed. But your machines working hard whenever year those fans ramp up that means is getting hot and if it crashes when it's hot that's a, that's a thermal air. The problem is thermal era could be in a lot of components opponents, don't like to get hot including the power supply motherboard video card, but it could also be a memory leak in your video drivers, you know, it's it's impossible for me to tell you what's wrong go through. The trouble shooter will put Lincoln the show notes. But it's going to it's the kind of thing it's very hard to diagnose unless you can make it happen every time. That's, that's the one exception when you can make an error happen, every single time. That's a huge clue like if it's every time you're watching video and chrome big clue. Look inside if it's tower case look inside into clean it up could be Dustin there that does happen, these things happen.

The tech guy time to talk computers. The internet home theater, digital photography smartphone, smart watches apps. Augmented reality all that stuff eighty eight eighty eight. Ask Leo, the phone number. Eight eight eight two seven five five three six toll free from anywhere in the US or Canada outside that area still reach us just use Skype out. Call eight eight eight two seven five five three six back to the phones we go and stand in commerce, California. Hi, stan. Stand wheel. Yep. Welcome your me. Great. Stan, I have a I have what I call Dr USB port. Yep. I save all my relation okay. And it quit working, I get a light to says it's reading it, but it won't read it. So I'm wondering if you know play second stand that. These drives it was that your only copy of your data. Yes, sir. Well, some drivers a terrible place to rely on for your backup, let alone for your original. So. Because flash memory dies, and often when it's dead. It's dead is not recoverable. It is, I guess, conceivable in the best case scenario that what was not the flash memory in the USB drive. But the USB interface, sometimes those die. Flash memory dies, a lot more. But sometimes, those die, if you if you want to get it back, you can there are people you can go to who will do data recovery on it, but it's expensive. And for instance, in this case, they would need to have the identical USB some drive, take the chips out of yours put it in the identical drive, and see if they if that was what's wrong. But if it wasn't what's wrong, if it's just the, the flash memory in their often if that's failed, it's gone for good. There are ways to recover. Data from flash memory, and I said, recover because recover is one of those ways it is a program from seek cleaner. There's a free version, although almost always with these things if, if they could find stuff, they'll say, well, and that'll be fifty dollars but recovered does offer free, I believe free recovery. So that's one to try. There's another their number of these that do a very good job of recovering flash memory, so but try recover our EC UVA, if you Google it, you'll find it and see cleaners. Pretty good company. Honestly, though. When I when a flash drive dies on me. I throw it out. Because it's just not been my experience. That it's that it's recoverable these things die. And it is a very poor choice for backup, actually. It's not a poor choice for backup. If it's not your only copy, that's not backup though is that's the original. So it's a very poor choice for an original. It's a less poor choice. If you have an original on your internal drive, and then you're backing up to a fund drive because they both have to die. It's a decent choice. If you're backing up to two different kinds of devices, and that's the real rule on backup. I've, I've mentioned this many times, my friend, Peter Krogh made it up. It's called three to one backup and it's a good thing to keep in mind. Your data is not backed up unless there are three copies not one copy three copies and by copies. I mean, you know, not a copy of something but, but a three sets maybe that's a better way to use it three sets of that data. Sometimes we'll go. Well, I copied it. So I can delete the original 'cause I have a copy now. Well, you have a set you don't have really a copy because the once you delete, the original, it's not a backup anymore. It's the original. So you want the original plus two backups three sets. The two of this is onto different media, and that's because it's generally considered a mistake to rely on any one technology, like let's say USB drive. So it wouldn't be bad of USB drive. If you also had it on an extra external drive or some other place, actually, ideally, the third copy is, and this is the one off site, which could either be in the cloud on a cloud service, like Google Drive or one drive, or I cloud or at work on a hard drive. So three two one three copies. Two different kinds of media. So that doesn't mean take two different thumb drives, bring one to work. Two different kinds of media, at least and then at least one copy off site in case you know, there's a disaster. So in this case, you had one one nothing. You had one copy one original, you had it on him, one, medium, which failed and you had no off-site version, so you don't have a backup. I'm sorry. You can there are people who will do this, and you can search for it. Somebody's give me a link by zip code, from thumb tech dot com to flash drive. Data recovery near you. I tell you, my nervousness on all of this is. How reliable are these guys? And what can they actually do? But there are there are places. You can go that say I you know, and they've got reviews on here. So we'll put that thumb tack search result on the on the website, you'd put in your zip code will say, here's some people that can do it get a get a quote, because it's going to it's not cheap. It's not gonna be cheap. David Westlake village, California, Leo LaPorte the tech. Hi, david. Thank you for taking my call. Thanks for calling for you. So my nephew's got a birthday coming up that we want to gaming computer. So I went out, I picked up a Dell thirty six seventy with a I seven and it seemed to be right up, what he needed, minus graphics card. Right. So I went out and I picked up a n video sixteen sixty TI graphics card for them. Nice. You're a good augury. I try however it's gonna require a different power supply. Yeah. I would have warned you about that. Going good. Okay. I picked up a thermal takes seven fifty initially and getting to be a little expensive next time by gaming PC still have done all this work. I were white a bit cheaper because we got a real good deal on the initial awesome. Yeah, that's one of the problems with buying a quote, gaming PC. You're getting all the same hardware. And, you know, sometimes he's gaming PC's. They trick them out with LED lights and the flashing things in the winter. And then they charge you know, the up charge you because it's a gaming PC, so you're going to do the same thing. You just have to do the work, right? So the initial power supply, my go to plug it in and the motive board has a eight x and a secondary four pin AT ex that power supply didn't have that option. It only had the eight pin or at twenty four. So I returned it. I got the next model up, which has an eight penny. X and then it pig tails off to a second eight AT X. So I just wanna make sure before I powered up the eight pin and then take half of the secondary. Eight pin should have no issue with that. Yeah, a lot of times you can do that depends where the power pins are and all of that, but, yes, lots can do that. Okay. That was my big concern before I powered, they'll think you'll fry anything. But look at the Penn outs on the on both connectors and make sure you're not putting power on something that's data because that would fry it but as long as it's power power, it's expecting power on that pin. You're all right. It, it looked that way. Yeah, usually that's the way it is this is this is exactly why though again. Pre if it's prebuilt you don't have to this is this is crazy stuff you spent a lot of time on this. So I had two other quick questions about at the first one any issue with installing the PCI graphics card before initial boot up. Or should I put it up? And then powered down then install it after I've gone. In fact, it might be better to have the card in there, because boot up is the point at which windows decided with drivers and so forth, the load, so it might might be good idea. You may have to go into bias because now you have to video solutions you have a motherboard video, and you have graphics card video. Sometimes you have to specify in the bios which you wanna use. Okay. Okay. But then you should have drivers for both and they should automatically plug and play. That's one of the things when does does very well. And then the last question is, so it had it says it has twenty four gigs of ram. It says eight gigs of DDR ram, and then sixteen of octane. Oh, wow. And I had not heard of this is Intel's new three D ram? Good on you. What do you want to know about it? I just wanted to make sure because I hadn't heard obtained before I just want to sure that that's going to be sufficient enough. Where is that optimize, it on the on the on the motherboard or on the video card? Where's the opt-in? So it's an integrated video card. So the wave and I see it from looking at the motherboard it looks it looks like it's on the motherboard it may be using the obtain necessity. Sometimes they do that because it's non volatile. So it may be what you're booting to is the opt-in. Okay. Sometimes it's used that way to opt-in is three D effect. If you Google it, you'll see a three d. Memory technology that is sometimes used as Rams more often, I think uses solid, state storage. So probably what it's telling you is I have sixteen gigs of DDR ram. And then how much obtained it have. Sixteen of octane, and eight gigs of DDR. So the eight gigs will be the available ram the sixteen was probably being used as a cash for the hard-drive. Okay. So I wouldn't be negative thing upgrade that DR that. No. If you have slots, you definitely want sixteen in no more, right? Yeah. I just wanted to make sure that it needed that sixteen and the octane it seemed like pain was a secondary source but yeah, I don't think it's uses ram. I think it's used as cache to speed up the hard drive be my guess, you know, Intel created this thing, and it's kind of created a monster because. Just it's, it's nonstandard and you'll find it on Intel motherboards, obviously, that's what you've got it does require an Intel processor, and it's my understanding, it's mostly used exactly as I would guess it's on. It used on yours as cash ramp for hard drive. So it's like it's like a hybrid drive, but who knows it could be used as a hard drive as well. I I'm not sure how it's set up. See see what windows does. I'll definitely upgrade that DDR form them. Yeah. Yeah. Have fun. All right. I appreciate it. Pleasure. Your nice Oncle. That's a nice thing to do. When I bought when I wanted to get a gaming system for our sixteen year old, I, I, you know, I just want him gaming system. Because I just this is the last thing I want to have to figure out and the thing is you can't call anybody at this point except me because the all the companies will say, well, you have to ask the video card company, you have to ask the motherboard cub, there's too many people involved at this point, and they call pass the buck to one another. So really your you're the you're the, the tech support guy for the whole thing as you can. See, that's exactly what he's going through Leo LaPorte. The tech guy eight ask Leo more of your calls coming up. Leo LaPorte, the tech follow me. Actually. Don't follow me. I don't I got off social. No facebook. No instagram. I do have a Twitter. But I don't use it. I you know, I was hard. It's hard to kill an account with half is almost six hundred thousand followers. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I probably should because it's a dumpster fire these things social media networks crazy. Their nightmares eight ask Leo. Let's go on to say Hello to Sherman, intestine, California. Hello Sherman halio. How are you longtime listener first-time caller? Thank you. Welcome. Glad you found us. Yeah. I am getting ready to go on a trip around the world. How you doing? Tell me. Oh, your backpacking around the world. Yes. And I'm looking at I have an iphone seven class and I'm looking do I get the pixel with fi. That'd be my first question is that my first answer? So the Google fi, which is Google's version of a phone company, rides on top of other phone companies. They don't have their own cell towers. They use T mobile sprints. And US is in the United States as you travel worldwide. They'll use T mobile they might use others as well. But the great thing about PHI is no matter where in the world, you are the data cost is the same ten dollars a gigabyte capped after six gigabytes. You don't pay any more so than cards. Yes. You'll have to Google Feis card. Yeah, but once I have that once you're traveling. No, that's your phone number. That's it now, phone calls, do change depending as you travel around, and it does not work in every country you should look at the list to make sure if you're traveling around the world, it's two hundred countries two hundred how many total to ten I did find a year ago when I was in Monaco, it didn't work there. Then I when I was there last year it did. So they added Monaco. Thing about Monaco, it's a mile from France in any direction, so, you know, or Italy on the other side. So, in other words, it's not gonna work everywhere necessarily it works. Pretty much everywhere I found the bandwidth was good. Now, you could also do T mobile, but T mobile will slow you down for data. So for no fee, they give you two g data and some cases, three g I. Go ahead. Can also possibly getting the Google pixel Chromebook. Yeah. As something to take work me. Yeah. That's a good idea. Because if you lose it, it's not a heartbreak. Yeah, but you to a lot with the I five or the I seven or any reason why upgraded. Oh, god. No. I five is overkill. Well, it's nice if you have an I five that's nice, but most Chromebooks are arm processors are not they're not, and even the ones that are Intel are usually lower end like atom processors. You must be getting it from Google. Yeah. Yeah. The as far as I know, the only company offers a real, I five and I seven and you pay for it. It's a thousand bucks. I don't think so, I wouldn't especially if you're traveling around the world, I'd get an Acer or something SM, you know, half the price that's going to be fine and won't break your heart if, if it gets damaged or lost. Okay. The last question VPN do I need to express UPS or something like that? That's a more difficult. One to answer. I'd say no. Because what? So sometimes people use VPN's in China to get around restrictions. But I think that's a good way to get arrested. So I would say, no just don't do anything you want to keep private. So it's kind of depends where you're going. If you're using a Chromebook and you're secure you don't probably don't need VPN. If you pens, what you're doing if you wanna have Google hangouts. Well, that's the thing. I mean, even if used a VPN if you're using a messaging service that's been compromised doesn't matter. So it depends how private you want to be if you're saying, I just want day-to-day hackers. I don't want them to get into my system. You gotta Chromebook. You're fine. That's pretty much it. I'm just gonna keep in touch with family friends, while I'm traveling. Yeah. So okay, so use a VPN to send Email. Well, guess what the minute, it goes out of the VPN. It's the it's flying through the air in the clear, anyway. And maybe your Email providers been compromised to and at cetera et cetera et cetera. So APN is is really protection for some specific situations. Like your I if you're on a Chromebook Doni more about. Okay. You get a cheap Chromebook Google. Without a question is the best is what I use for travelling? I have a Google FAI phone at all times for that very reason. Can I court my current number do I have? Sure. Can you sure can? So you'll have the same number. You'll be I mean last month. My Google fight by phone, though, was thirty bucks Google fi because they don't charge if you know for the only for us. It starts at twenty bucks. Ten bucks a gigabyte after that. If you don't use a lot of data and it's internationally found it to be very good better than T mobile because I always carry a T mobile phone as well. It's a little faster in general. The other thing is, you'll find there's wifi everywhere. Yeah. And, and you're going to end up going the reason you want. Bandwidth, you want data is like Google maps, a work when you're lost in the city, but when you're going to, you know, stay in touch, or surf the net, you're going to go to coffee shop, anyway, they'll have wifi. Does the five phone has like hot spot where I can say laptop at works, the chrome OS beautifully? Yep. Perfect. Well, I appreciate all the year your spend a year or longer. Man. So have you been saving up to do, this is how you did it? Yeah, I'm in my late sixties, and it's time out at. Oh, you're. So this is me in a few years is what I'm hearing here. I wanna do this. Are you going by yourself? Yeah. Backpacking a kid. Are you gonna stay in hostels? Sometimes, sometimes hostile sometimes rooms Airbnb. This sounds like a great way to, to stay young. No, I'm trying to. That's for sure. I, I am so impressed. I would love to do this. Twenty four and I've always been kind of jealous. Yeah. Yes. What kids do? Nice. I think it's a good kid. You're going to you're you're going to have such experiences and adventures. And it's going to be hard times. But it's gonna be great. Jealous man have a great time. All right. Take care. Thank postcard. All right. Bye-bye that is awesome. So jealous two laser Leila port. The tech eight eight ask Leo, the gives was dick DeBartolo coming up with some wacky Gizmo. Or gadget he collects them just a few minutes. But first Ralph in Altoona PA. Hello, ralph. How you doing, awesome? How are you? Oh there. What can I do for you? Yes, my question is, I've got a Dell desktop computer. It's running windows. And I just got an a few months ago, and I was sitting in the room there, where I have it and I put it to sleep. And I was on the other computer reading some articles and I heard the, the hard drives spinning up on that thing was asleep. And it it doesn't do it all the time. It's periodically. Yeah, it's probably getting your Email or something. What's I probably get your Email? You're saying. Oh, yeah. You probably have stuff running in the background. It's pretty normal computers when they're sleeping. Are not necessarily fully asleep, especially recently they've made computers with a heartbeat. That continues, occasionally processes will run things like Email look at your Email. Look at what do you, do you use outlook or something like that for Email? Or do you just use the web? No, I get my Email through my provider. Okay. So it's not that then because that would, if did you, you leave any programs opener, you close everything when it went to sleep. Once in awhile, leave something open windows, itself, does stuff to, you know, goes out is if there's new files to index the index might go out and check windows update once in a while, you know, it's not computers. Have a deep rich inner life. You shouldn't assume just pick as sleeping that is not doing anything. Are you worried that there's somebody on your system where on it or something's going on like that? You know, is somebody accessing that thing that I don't know about tell you, what did I, I turned the turn the modem I got a BS L motive loss and quit. Yeah. Because almost always win. It's doing something. It's doing it on the internet. All the things I mentioned, it would it'd be going online. It's going out. It's going out on the net. Doing some. Yeah. Yeah. You, you can't check your task scheduler actually. There's even more sophisticated tools. Microsoft offers free, one called process, explorer, and see what's going on. You could keep the windows activity monitor running, and just see, you know, when it it's waking up and doing things generally, I understand your concern, I do. Because nowadays stuff gets on people's systems, and in fact, might be doing something in the background, but it's not necessarily. It's not unusual to have windows periodically. Macro as periodically spin up do something. And then go back to sleep. But if you're worried if you're worried about that. You normally you'd see other kinds of behavior that would look suspicious. But if you're worried about that you could download process explorer, it's a part of Microsoft's, SIS internals key, and it, it will downloads. It's a small download and it will tell you things, what things are running in the background, you'll be actually amazed but will also show it will also show you CPU access and disk access, and you could see the exact time and you could see who was doing it. Okay. Let me ask you this. I just came to mind. I put Morton VPN on there that could be doing it. Well, let me ask you this. If I turned Norton VPN on. And it stops doing that. What, what would that tell about than nothing? From the point of view of your system. The VPN is handling all internet access. It's still it's still able to access outside world. Okay. That's more or less privacy. Yeah. Although it could very well be Norton. That's doing it. Okay. Never thought of that. Absolutely. Absolutely. So I would I you know, it's not a bad idea. This is probably a useful thing, everybody to know. It's not it's kind of a higher end geek tool, but it is free for Microsoft. It's not hard to use. And I think you'll you can look at the activity, you know, if you do it control all delete, you'll see you could see what the activities are, but this gives you a little bit more granular look at what's going on. And it'll show you, you know, a time line of this Gak says, is, and CPU excesses. You get a little graph, so you could see who's accessing, what win and that'll might put your mind at ease. And if you see stuff you really don't know what is that? By the way, hackers do not name Mauer with scary names, most of the most of the time, they'll name them things that look like their windows processes, so you know, but, but you'll get an idea of what's going on. You know, the thing I guess, the takeaway is. Normal for windows to do stuff, when it's, you know, idol, but it's also not unreasonable to say, well, I wanna know what's running on my system. So if you care about that, then look at process explorer. Could I ask one more question? Certainly I bought a an HP wireless printer. Got a laptop. Okay. It's windows, seven, now, I installed, the, the HP software on the laptop, and I can broadcast or whatever you wanna say a test, page Senate tax payers. Yep. Yep. Yep. It'll do that. But it won't print anything out. Okay. That is annoying. Isn't it? So you know, you can talk to it, you know, you could see the printer but you just can't print to it. I mean you can only test pitch that sounds. So that means that something is broken in the printer driver that the spoilers not working or something like that. I would uninstall completely uninstall the printer driver windows, does this oughta Mattingly, maybe not installing the best stuff. Go to HP dot com. Get the driver for your version of windows, and your specific printer install it by hand and it's something broken prince is broken or something like that. The test pages, easy, because it's just really sending a signal to printer saying, print, your test page. All of it comes from the printer. What's not working is you sending actual printing data from your computer so you do have a network connection, but you but whatever's spooling out the data to the printer's, not working that to me sounds like a print driver issue. Yeah, I tried to try to pronounce PDF files. It just would not work, and I thought, well, maybe the pedia or something going on with the PDF file. So I just took a regular text files still wouldn't Br I always opened up with always open up notepad and types of, and no good, because that's as simple as it can be. And if it won't print for no ped- then. Yeah, just reinstall the driver. And I would get it for me. Instead of using the default windows, provided, it sounds like it, it may have missed installed. You know, and not for not fully install its parts. The eight you'll notice when you when you download the driver from HP there's a lot of parts HP people. It's a lot of stuff on your system, including maybe, you know, stuff you'll never use. But at least you know, you'll have a complete set of, of drivers that should help. Whenever you know, I'll give you a little IT secret. Your IT guy will tell you this whenever you call the IT department. And you say something about your printer. And they I put you on hold a swear up a storm. Then once they come down. They take you off a hold. And they say. Have you restarted your computer if they're saying that to you, if that's happening to you? Just laughing behind your back the IT department hates printer problems. I hate printer problems is a million things that can go wrong. Eight last Leo our show. Thank you, to Damian big peewee, our musical director, our show, wouldn't happen without him on the other end doing whatever he does stuffing my words down the pipe. Thank you. Big big p we appreciate it. And of course, without your calls and, and the fabulous Kim Scheffer answering your calls. I couldn't do show. So I thank you, all of you for helping me do this program, dick DeBartolo. The Gizmo is coming up, and then we'll wrap it up prime time for one or two. More calls before we go home, Leo LaPorte, the tech. Look at my friend. It's our disco guy, dick DeBartolo, man, magazines maddest writer, and our kids mo- wizard here. He is from beautiful downtown Disney. Land exactly Star Wars ride Gisneyi land, just Myra. Push you around on a little chair. Got wheels on the office chair. That's it. Lucas letter on the wall. So that that's pretty much. Yeah. Yeah. George Lucas liked your Star Wars parody did. Yeah. And his voice didn't. So that's that was the that's the fun. But in the long run George said it's. Okay, right. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Well, he, he hit us on and said, should be kademi, what for me and what Drucker. And then it was three days late. At the lawyers said you can't do that. Did you just send them a copy of the gains the publisher, what are you going to do? And he said, give me magic marker. He wrote across the lawyers led a g George liked it. Oh, and then you never heard from them again. Never again. See, I think that happens a lot of times, because we every once in a while apple get mad at me or whatever pulled out our video on YouTube or whatever, because we show apple content. And, and I honestly think it's just some guys a lawyer, apple hired they'd probably forgot they're paying him. Yeah. I think they sit around all day gonna do. Yeah. Can we harass if you're paying people if you've got a whole building full of lawyers, they gotta do something? Yeah. So dick, you always bring us such fun stuff. What are you? Yeah. Well, this might be something for you. Okay. Now, this is a high end gadget. So I was invited as you look at the price and say, this is something for Leo. No, I looked at what it does. Okay. Good. I look at it what it does. Okay. So it was a Bose event. No, it's going to be another. Maybe another noise reduction headphone while it was except it was very funny because after the demo before the demo they have a little area with food, and I set next to this gentleman, I said, are you hit a see the bows, and he said, no, I'm the head engineer for the product that you're seeing? So what it was. He was saying all the time, we've been concentrating on reducing the noise four the person wearing the headphones the wireless. Right. But we haven't thought till now reduced the noise that's going to go into the phone call. He's making or if he's doing instructions to his virtual assistant. Oh, so this new headset has eight microphones for them for noise. That's a round. You two of them for noise. That is directed toward the Mike's you're going to speak in and two more that can shift function depending on with noises worst. So you still get the traditional noise cancelling the jet engine. Whatever exactly exactly people sitting next to, you won't hear echo talking to you. Well. It's better than that. So he says, let's call somebody, it's a noisy Starbucks so they call somebody and it's a Bose guy. Yes. And then he says, you know, if you want to go to the window, and you'll see a guy in the back waving. That's where he is. He's in that I don't know how they found the hotel with the Starbucks across the street where you could look into window is that guy has to sit. For somebody to call. Yeah. Joe Joe's like the low. Man of the totem pole Joe. I got a great assignment for you. We're gonna call you. A report is going to call you every twenty one minutes. Okay. You have to tend to be excited to talk to them. Yeah. So he I talked through the Bose QC thirty five to which is their latest model. Okay. And, and you can hear a lot of the noise. Yes, then he shifts over because it's pad to compare the two different bluetooth, vices. Then you talked to him over the bow seven hundred and it's quiet. I would say their noise is about seventy five to eighty percents, redo we've seen noise canceling headsets for phone used a lot of truckers use the blue parrot for instance. Yes. Very good job. So this is for somebody who wants to be listening to music, obviously, not while you're driving. But, but also wants to use it as a as a headset for phone. Exactly. Yeah. Or what talking to your virtual assistant, for example, in another room. A guy read eight facts off a giant monitor, and then we had a monitor hooked up to the seven hundred and to the, the Bose QC thirty five and we could see the translator ogling, Gary was because it was so easy. Yes. And Sarah got every fact, correct. And the other one got some of the facts, but a lot of things that didn't make any sense at all as it was being translated, so they certainly have put some time and effort into this now, again, it, it's not incredibly inexpensive, but I do a web search on the top ten headphones like it's at seen it, most of them off three hundred fifty to four hundred dollars, and that's where the Bose. Seven hundred is gone to come in at the three ninety nine basically four hundred dollars. It's not out till the end of the month, and it is beautiful. The guy said it took a very long time to design because we couldn't take headsets. We had and just improve them. This is stainless steel it has, I think he said of friction bearing track. So the, the cups can slide up and down the stainless steel holder, so that there's no rods that extend it is really beautiful, looking how much again four hundred bucks ninety nine expensive is that's even more expensive than the, the QC's, right? Yeah. The QC's is three hundred and fifty dollars. Oh, all right. Those are pretty expensive. The Bose seven hundred eight microphones eight knows reduction microphones. Now what you could do if you want. I am not buying these. What you okay. No, I just shout louder. I'm.

Ep. 408 - Spirits, Influence + Managing Energy: Ask Us Anything with K+L

"Hello and welcome almost thirty. What's up what's happening. It's lynn krista here to entertain you and be your fashion. He says the third episode. You're seeing me in this turtleneck. Yeah we batch our content stylus though. It's a sunday. I'm wearing full lip and it's miserable arizona ball. It looks great. It's gray dude. I've grays now. Oh really yeah this year. It's funny me and just both we're like damn this last year. We got gray's really. Yeah that make you better than me. Now excited i was like initiation into totally to wisdom wizardly wizardry visually wizard. Who is it. Who is it my therapist. She has raised and she's like. I think i'm just gonna rocket while i'm blonde so i'm not going to you know what i mean. Yeah apparently i'm sure i do. I sure unlike you okay. We're the same. I used to have blonde hair but dark dark dark dark. I like it yeah. It's kind of like it was fun blonde. Dude when i look at old like old pictures of us when we were really highlighting it. Wow no isn't even my worst. I'm blind dude. I was thinking about when i went to college. And it was white on top and dark on bottom. Remember that moment. Who had that charge. It was the reverse reverse biolog- they reverse bit by all g. Oh yes whatever. I o techniques say yes was lack dark on and then it was on the who did that are poor hair. Who started that because that was on. That was so bad. No that was such a cause. I remember my hairdresser. Taking the top. Half highlight highlight to the crit like highlight and then so dark on the bottom. Did you do that. You will not rebel. And i'm not rebel enough. I would get zebra. Highlights though. I sure and i was so excited. The more zebra the better. I love it so much. i'm caramel. Please everyone wanted care once. I was like Caramel highlights please one. Time trying to highlight mayor myself with like a home kit. Oh yeah i really fucked it up. I mean my best friend. Keeling told told our friend. Danny we were like everyone was. You're good at hair. Best tear in highschool. So i thought i would be able to highlight hair with kitchen foil. We've painted highlights we using kitchen foil. It's so heavy duty heavy duty and raptor hair and kitchen foil with these like fake highlights painted on our had. We thought it would be like so easy. Parents were pissed. Oh good because then you gotta pay a few hundred dollars to get a few hundred. It was so funny. That was the thing when i was in growing up. I think until probably i was twenty six every guy date. It was like you should be a bomb hairdresser. I loved doing her as well relief. I love doing. I would pretend i was doing here. People's like problems and winter balls and stuff. Yeah i loved it. Yeah as many. Bobby pins as possible. Yes yeah i wouldn't. He's everyone's hair. Yeah i got to college and no one really teased like. It's so i remember. When i did the people's hair before dances on my friends emily. I did her hair. We looked like bride of chucky. Are here with this high. It was like curled it was. I feel so bad. He's still laughing. That picture to this day is i fucked. I jacked her up in a bad way. I did one of those hairstyles at a formal where this sides are really top was. It was recent those a recent trend know what was the one. You matty's wedding that yeah. I did that but that was more of the slick those more this way. This was like yes like rocker. This yeah this was like mohawk thing or was that at the time yes whatever. Wow that was a good one I'm excited about this. We love these ones that you guys. They're so fun. And you know we have probably five or six guys really like this one. These are just solos with lindsay. And i we take questions from the community. And what's really cool about. This is that we're going to be doing things with our community. Live in the membership. So if you enjoy these you can come into conversation with us. And have your questions asked live with lindsay and i in our community during our monthly. Asked me anything happy hour. Yeah kennel wait. Could almost thirty dot com for more. Shall we begin. Yeah let's do it okay. First question was. Do you have any predictions for twenty twenty one any spiritual world event any any predictions by the way. We're not psychic so at all. Hold on let me actually have are the week before we did our predictions episode. So you guys can dig into actual predictions from psychics and astrologers have two full episodes with some of the best in the business that are predicting everything for twenty. Twenty one so highly. Recommend you guys listen to that. I mean this is just like peanut gallery over here. Yeah for me. I feel like my. I haven't listened to that episode just yet because we're recording this a little before. It comes out. But i heard any predictions really on twenty twenty one but my overall thought and feeling is that there is going to be a reshuffling of hierarchies and so that's in government and not even online when people are looking to influencers are looking to leaders. I just feel like people are going to really realize that they can take their power back. And we're kind of breaking down the illusions of hierarchy of power of those structures. And i also think that the spiritual community is going to get really really hot. I feel like the past. Couple of years. Have been wellness focused. People really love wellness. People really like into that and i feel like people are going to be. Even more into spirituality than ever and people are going to be having their spiritual awakening awakenings and looking for answers. And i feel like there's one to be a lot of confusion within the spiritual community about who is legitimate and who is not and it's going to be a really beautiful thing to have people have both their spiritual awakenings but if you are it's also a really challenging time. They can you feel lonely. It can feel isolating. It can feel jarring because you know maybe a lot of what you've known to be true is not true. Everyone has their range of emotions. But i think that that's going to be really hard for people to understand and go through. So i think the spiritual community is going to have a shakeup yen it requires discernment because i think anything that is quote unquote popular. There will be I guess like just. I'll just say darkness but like fill in the blank That will want to kind of think it's on integrated on integrated people that will want to take advantage of those that are truly authentically seeking in this case a spiritual awakening or to deepen their spirituality. So i think it requires true discernment and You know coming back to yourself and asking like this fuel this feel. Does this feel true. Does feel good to me because it's not you know not every spiritual teacher leader healer etcetera for everyone and now every teacher or healer is in it for the right reasons you just have to have discernment. I think that will be huge and i think even for us in the past year. It's been interesting to be like. Oh wow that person is not about their biz And that person is really not spiritual person in the way that my understanding of spirituality is bringing back to why you're creating or responsible for or a part of or participant of the experience you're creating and then also that unity that unity conscious knowing that. We're all one and that really. This is like something that we're all in together just two examples but a lot of people are not really integrated in this merger community and are really speaking from pain body place or like a fear place and that realization. This year actually made really bombed. I was like damn that is i. That makes me really really bums me out. Yeah yeah. I'm like by nature and some this bites me in the ass sometimes but just kind of trusting person and so like if i have an experience where i mean. Yeah where. I feel. Kind of not duped. But i'm just like i'm almost bummed about myself because i'm like them like a hawk. Turn up your wonder your discernment. Yeah totally. i've had that. It's just i didn't i listened. I heard it. I was like oh i don't wanna be judgmental and i don't want a part of it is loving people for where they're at and that's it. Joe is i love people for where they're at and i'm not being better than them and that's part of it but that doesn't mean that i need to spend time with them or learn from them or you know have them be someone that i'm like a like using a mentor or someone as a resource so i agree with you the discernment this year is gonna be really huge because there's going to be a lot of information out there. There's gonna be a lot of questions and if you guys have noticed over the past year there's so much uncertainty with everything that people are for answers everywhere and that was something that i noticed happening over the last few weeks there was the situation where there was a woman not was calling out. These certain healers online and one of the the healers that they called out was Actually probably half were people that we know that are in the space and you know find for people to express their opinion but what was interesting with seeing how the call to action was to sort of not listen to them cut them out and then in the comments i noticed people were like what do you think of this person asking this person. What do you think of. This person should we. Should we cut them out. Should we you know. Are they good or are they bad and they're really just giving the power away to someone that like really might have no idea what they're talking about and no one should be asking. What do you think of that person. What do you think of that thing. Because that's for your own judgment and that's not mob mentality lake. It's not what we should be doing. So in the space it really is being discerning of like. What is this person out. Your for is for themselves for the truth. Is it for something that feels really good for you and makes you feel expansive. Makes you feel empowered. Makes you feel like you have the power Yeah harmful What are your predictions predictions. Well i keep waking up in the middle of the night. And i think i'm still sleeping but it kind of feel. It's not lucid. But i'm looking at my room. But everything shaking. Oh not the be weird. But i think there might be some earthquake things that might happen. And we're in la so we'll probably be getting whatever happens. It's just weird and i don't. I've never had that before. But it's just like this this rumbling and not the cars outside for sure so i just have been thinking about that. So we'll see. I do think that you know. Just in general we might see some of the turmoil reflected in nature. You know. I think a lot of people have been saying that but just that feels true to me feels very true to me. I just think that you know continuing from twenty twenty which was a year. Where i i was getting very clear about what's really important to me and realizing where i felt very attached to a thing an outcome a place like l. a. For example i you know i thought i'd be your forever and this is where i would settle etcetera etcetera and that's fine but i think just observing where i become really attached to a situation a future situation and how much more how how much more fun life can be when i'm a bit more unattached and also Tuned into the present moment and the present moment is what's important to me my friends. My family ingots myself being to my body creating a space that i love that inspires me. Doing the things i love. You know like the podcast like music just getting really clear about like these simple things that bring me joy that. Make me feel safe. That make me feel inspired. Helped me to grow is what twenty twenty brought me and i think twenty twenty one. We'll just be kind of like next level of that per pupil which is getting clear on the important things in their lives. Whether it's allowing you know maybe some friendships to fall away. Because they really weren't alignment you know if you're you have a job that you don't love and you're like you know what this is. It's important that i love what i do and some people be like. It's actually not important to me. What i do for money but like i really wanna get get down with that hobby that i love doing. Maybe i'm gonna turn it up there. So i think that's going to become more apparent to people and i guess my hope really is that you know there is. I don't know. I felt like in the last month. I've just been in such a like an observer seat and sometimes i feel kind of the the shame that people put out there. Were like you. Don't stand for anything you don't do anything and it's like i just. There is that observer part of me that just sees like intense growth within all of this and just kind of want to lake love on people for being in that moment in their lives. And i think if we do a little bit more of that where we have that just a little bit more compassion empathy and not saying everything that's going on should have your compassion empathy but rather than reacting so quickly from a place of really emotional You know no talking to joey today and we are talking about twitter. And he's like dude sometimes. I can't even look at my twitter because every sixteen minutes. There's a tweet. That's a reaction or emotion. Something on my god bless your nervous system like honestly like your nervous system should be priority over a reaction to something legit because or just everyone like take the energy and like may change Like do whatever you want but actually make change. And i'm not saying that voices don't matter but it's like what's really going on here. What's real what does this really doing. How is this really making any sort of change And it is but is the reaction in five minutes to everything making change. You know why. I think you know there is in that moment kind of catching the wave. Your you're abandoning. You kind of abandoned yourself because you're just like let me throw myself into whatever. The spiral of energy is and not actually think about. How do i how do i truly feel. Also what israel also like. Do i need to be reacting in this moment does it. Am i being called to respond right now. Or is this just kind of nervous system to your point reaction to this and i think it just delays delays delays any sword of truth telling between you and you You know some. Yeah that was like you know one of the questions we had which was do we feel the pressure to always speak out on every single thing. That's going on and you know. I did a post about this awhile ago. That was like whenever we're whenever we're believing not an influencer celebrity famous person. Whatever someone we fall on instagram that we believe has a lot of our followers influence should be speaking out on something. We're really outsourcing any opportunity for us to do any critical thinking by relying on them to do their regurgitation or the critical thinking or the information sharing. And it's just such a way to give away your power it's like i only like this person. Thinks this way. I do to. This person says this thing. I do too. And it's like where are you in this. Like where's your opinion and your thoughts. I always want our community to always feel like. That's what makes me upset because it's like this influence her. This person doesn't have any more power than you. do you know. I never want anyone to feel like. They don't have complete power over speaking their truth and saying what they feel and being passionate about what they want to be passionate about and believing that someone else has more power than them. You know you don't want to continue to give your power away and just leave that all. These people have more of an impact than you do because it's not true And the other side of it is you know or else you're encouraging basically the echo chamber. It's like you know. Does this person agree with what i agree with. And if they do then. I feel safe because i don't have to challenge my critical thinking or i am part of a group that thinks the same so i'm never going to be exiled or whatever you know there's a mentality around that and they're such beautiful nuance to following or listening to or being in community and friendship with people that don't always agree with you and People that don't always have the same opinion as you. It's it's one of my favorite things about my life is the the range of perspectives and beliefs and opinions. And i've learned so much from being able to be in rooms of people. That are think differently than i do. And i think that's what the internet is for is to really expand our mind rather than just be a part of you know an echo chamber definitely.

Joe's sprouts rows and kroger personal experience and perspective is like i. I personally don't know what re sharing someone else's post is going to do you know especially with what's gone on in the last month. I i trust that. Y'all are seeing everything. So i actually don't know what me re sharing says or helps so i really didn't feel comfortable adding to that onslaught and i. I also like i didn't feel comfortable sharing a slew of information like i haven't researched. I don't know i don't do anything you know. All these things that have happened recently are are terrible. Yeah talked up great band. And then i also don't know all the facts me and i don't feel comfortable. My intuition says don't share all of this. We don't know what's really going on all the time we just don't know period and so that's kind of where where i've been where i'm like. How do i want to contribute here and for me. It's always wanted to be honest with myself. And then i want to be honest with people who follow me. I also i do wanna bring like and. I don't think that is inappropriate. When we're going through some hard times and i i don't think it discounts people's experiences. I am more than happy to have these conversations with people in dm's one on one etc but like you know. I really wanna honor how i wanna show up to social media and it is not to necessarily reposted for the hundred thousand time imposing that someone's created so total way just my yeah and it's also again like social media. Everyone knows social media not real life. You know we all talk about that. We know that it's like there's such a performative aspect to social media in itself. Then you get your of social media's performing so if we understand that in our minds we should also understand that just because someone isn't sharing a re post something doesn't mean they're not actively in conversation active behind the scenes and all these things so people should have the right to show up in this tiny sliver of their life that exists online in the way that they want and into creative expression that they want instead of funneling their entire psyche in this space. That's like just incredibly performative. And i just wanted to read this beautiful common had A message from one of our community members when posted about to power our community to really just know that there matters as much as an influence and that they can do the critical thinking themselves. And they do you know. Speak their truth on. What's going on this is from kp and says admittedly. I've fallen deep into the trap of wondering questioning why people aren't commenting but this perspective is everything. I know you had access and give your energy just to address. The topic. And i'm so appreciative. When i reflect us to why i started questioning. I'm left with the reality that it wasn't even my own thought of which triggered it. It's the words of other influencers stating that. Everyone should be talking about it. I so appreciate your words in your voice. Thank you for the reminder that perfectly intelligent capable being of deciding what i want and what's important to me and that's the damn fucking truth. I was like yo. That's the whole thing. Dude is our fucking capable of changing the world having your own opinions speaking your own fucking truth and you don't need any. Oh can influence her. Who may not be. What's real telling you how to feel and what to do one hundred percent that's powerful love. Wow all right bye everyone. My stu breath peace in love baby. He's in love. We're just coding that with some peace above and the awareness that were all growing okay so hilarious predictions anyways. Those were fucking hilarious. I'm going to grow a third arm. That's eight hundred six hundred and have a beach body. I once liking beach body. I love this one. Would you like to see spirits or not so. Would you like to see spirits if you could or not ghosts or spirits. I'm pretty sure i've on. The plane decided that. I will never see spirits and ghosts. Because i don't think i've ever. I've seen it but this is what's interesting is for my entire life. I thought i would see them with my eyes. But you really see things with your third eye. And so i didn't know that my entire life over five and seen anything. And i was like i've i've seen this. I've seen that. But i've only saw in my mind's on my third i know that's where you really see things rather than with your physical which you also can see with your physical is like people have definitely had experience. But i think it's more so that you have it with her third. I didn't even know that. Yeah i know i. I've always said that. I want to but that's kind of what's totally tricky. Where it's like you. You try so hard. Yeah try so hard and you're right. I think it's all. I think it's your third eye but i also think there's like i get. Sometimes they get smells. Like random smells usually. It's around bedtime bedtime for me and my dreams have been really trippy. Know you've had a lot of dream stuff happen recently. My dreams have been wild but it's been fun to kind of take that dream state. I'll see things in real life. The next day that are elected from the dreams. Kinda feels like this connection Wherein i bend. Think i can kind of start to eventually communicate like in the dream to be able to kinda see in in real life but i i think after a while if i would be like to be able to see spirits i it might be a little distracting to me. I don't know better totally colonel right now. From nineteen from seventeen seventy I think i'm no. I think i decided this. When i was very little because i used to be terrified of spirits my entire life until i thought my claimed my power in the past couple of years. And i'm literally do not fucking i laugh. I laugh at the fucking thought of a spirit or entity trying to fuck with me. So i've never really wanted to. I think i've tried to connect more so to aliens or entities. But i'm kind of i'm kind of It's like i say that. I'm like i wanna do it but then i it's dark in my bed and i'm like i'm good. I wanted to take a nap. So i think i'm pretty much good. The one time i saw something was In palm desert. Actually i was on monday night. Palms which is really fucking wild and it was at the foot of my bed. It was this lake dark figure. That was kind of lake. Very tall indian chief. Almost and i remember. I was terrified. I was like petrified. And i kept calling injure michael. I knew he was there until i kept calling on angel. Michael an angel. Michael event eventually like escorted him out and there was a psychic the next morning that was doing this workshop so i just said to her. I'm like hey this wanna know like. I think there was something she's like. Oh yeah black eagle. He's one of your spirit guides like what she's a black eagle. Was that your bad something to tell you. And i'm like. I don't know if he felt good though Felt scared really. I don't know if he could have been back good. But that was the only time where i remember that feeling. And then i do. Remember in nashville. We were nashville for site. Had that visitor I think it was an archangel michael. But i had this blue light. That just came to me. And i remember my soul thinking. This is the best. I've ever felt on earth. This love this loving presence. That felt like i will never feel this type of pure love again and i don't know if it was angel michael. I don't know if it was mother mary. I don't know if it was a plead in. But i remember that feeling to that visitor but there was no face or spirit or soul because yeah that's just like murky I feel like when it's an. I haven't had an experience but in joel guide. It's like more light eating rather than like an actual. Yes figure photo later. There's new on netflix. Down for netflix spiritual stuff. Because like what are you trying to do to me. But surviving death on netflix's actually. I'm liking it it's beautiful. It's like a nice intro. But they talk about near death experiences and mediums and physical medium ship and a lot more. But i mean these near death. Experiences are on lieve. Rarely unbelievable you guys have to watch it. We did two episodes even alexander On you can search even. Espn almost thirty and then wade light heart on near death experiences and and so many of them are incredibly similar just in the basic sentiment of their taken to a place that is the most beautiful loving place they've ever been and they do not want to go back to their bodies yes saddle now but the their guides or the angel or whoever they meet will stay. Late beings will say no. It's not your not your time One woman actually. She went up there and just felt so amazing and she was told that her son was going to pass away before he was eighteen. She was like. Are you telling me. And they're like they said something to the effect of just like you know all life is beautiful for how long you aren't on earth. Olive is beautiful actually did pass away eighteen and But she had that experience of knowing where he was going and she was like you know if this is where he's going to be like when a gift. Yeah truly it's beautiful. Nope nope we know doped up. Here's from you guys okay. This is a good one How do you manage your relationship energy with your mom. So i did a lot called the mother wounds About sm- your mother relationship and sort of our relationship evolved how it's affected me and how important mother wound is to look at when healing and how the mother wound has affected me in and really things that i've done in my life to really work on work to heal that mother wound which i'm really working on an focused on right now in therapy and in my life and it's interesting because my mom just listened to the mother wound episode homie more. She said everything i said was true. She was everything you said was true. All beautiful yeah. She's really changed so much. It's crazy i do feel like the more i fueled. She's really changed. You know because yeah. The way that she shows up is completely different than before. But how do. I manage the relationship energy with my mom. I think that the way that i've managed to work on that relationship and really changing shift the energy with my mom is i by releasing all expectations of what i wanted her to be and i think if we think about oftentimes daughter our dream is to have those relationships those expectation be be released a bus so i can think about in my life. My expectations my mom had a me whatever she wanted me to be your grow up as or be seen in the world. As if i didn't have those perceived expectations. I probably would have felt a lot more freedom in our relationship. Same with my sister. She really struggled with the perception of those pressure and so released expectations of her to be my best friend of her to be. My you know confident my mentor of her. To be anything less than just who. She is And that has helped immensely. Where i now. Show up with like little expectation Which feels freeing which feels liberating because oftentimes with family. It's very quick before we get the were kicked off into the spiral of. They always do this. They always say this. They always act like this. Always doing this. And it is a crazy loop that we often go in so to just stop if we can that loop and just try and create a new experience for ourselves. We're were having a fresh new experience with them without any expectation without going into the loop of they always do this is really freeing so it takes a lot of time and effort but it can be really nice to treat it as if like it's a fresh relationship Yeah mine is a little different. I had an experience over the holiday where i felt like i was yet again. Kind of taking on what. My mom was feeling and feeling the responsibility to hold it to process it to fix it. Make it better. And i just realized how heavy that felt and how it actually affected my romantic relationship with sean And he actually like called it out and was like new. That conversation with your mom. And i just felt like after you know something was a little bit different and i tend to. I think you know we were sisters. One hundred percent and or i was her mom and she was my daughter and i just for you. It's probably brothers probably ours her dad. Yeah i i mean damn i love my mom's so angel much and i think that's i have a hard time. Sometimes lake. just watching her on her journey of life. You know because shallow we say to me. You're so much wiser than i ever was. And i am now which i appreciate and also sometimes make you less fear. Yeah yeah. She's super wise. Yeah but i just. Sometimes it makes me sad. And so for me. The way that i manage my energy with my mom is too literally after we talk or after i see her. You know it's always so good and positive for the most part. But i do have to kind of like kind of cl- literally clear some chords because i become so attached. Either what she's talking about or how she's feeling or what she's going through an i think just for me you know to be able to function and be in my own energy. I really have to do a little bit of like clearing is working with my therapist on that. Who's also kind of like a an energy healer. Just being able to release that but then also being very clear because i had this narrative of yeah i feel like i'm processing my mom's emotions and these aren't actually mine but they are mine and it's like mine that i have been kind of unwilling to recognize and process myself related to whether it's relationship with my mom or even with my dad or things like that where i kind of because i've been the middleman for so long between my parents and just in general in life kinda that balanced bieber rising i. I don't necessarily sit with like my emotions and process them kind of ice. Feel like taking on others and doing my part there. Yeah it is. It's definitely mine. And its mind to process and i think also just being very open with my mom like very open with how certain conversations make me feel or saying out loud like. I really wish in this moment that i could solve this for you and i know that i can't and i will be here to love and support you but i'm kind of releasing any responsibilities that i feel in this moment and it just kind of helps her to understand that. Well my daughter actually like is truly affected in these moments. When i'm sharing with her. How i'm feeling and that's okay but i i sometimes feel like when we are really in our emotions anyone that we forget how the other person might be taking it on and so like it is just kind of explaining in the moment how i'm feeling Which kind of helps everything come to the surface and into awareness. Yeah it's ongoing is definitely ongoing and yet will be. I've been thinking a lot about like okay. Next chapter of life like what will be like with my parents. You getting married. I'm sure you're like. I don't know if it changes but i'm thinking about like when i got married when i have kids like what will that relationship look blake and morph into. And how will i see them differently and they see me differently and all of getting ahead of myself. But that's sweet of you and don't care. I probably care too much. I know it's really sweet. Also we have Bethany webster who wrote the mother wounds are healing. The mother wound the book coming on. So that's gonna be really powerful. Two guys stay tuned for that one. That book has been really rape Almost one more. Yeah okay perfect. Do you ever have to suppress your. So tarik side. Yes yes. I was when i was home in for. I was in a hole but i was in florida for thanksgiving. There was just my dad and his girlfriend and then to avert dear family friends and they were like what do you do like. Finally they like. What do you do. And i'm like. Oh i have like A radio show some like what do i. What do i say what anything. And they're like. Oh yeah cool. what's it about. And i'm like spirituality they're lake. Yeah you know. I took a paranormal class in college. And there's just no evidence for any of it and i'm like paranormal literally. The conception and believe in paranormal spirituality. Damn ghosts right. Yeah i was like i know a lot of. it's bullshit. whatever dude. I don't even know like abandon your whole belief system thinking about changing it to. What do you think i should have. It be about but it's just don't care. Yeah you know not that. I don't care but it's really like people are gonna think what they think people are going to do what they do. So i think in the moments where i am finding myself. Suppressing my esoteric side. I find those to be more of the esoteric experience because the moments where it's rubbing up against me not being esoteric. I'm actually having to reexamine and really look at the show up what i feel. Am i in judgment of this person. Am i yes i am. I wasn't judgment of him am i. Belittling myself am. I giving my light. Am i all of these things. Am i seeing him for who he is and i see him. I trauma whatever so. Those can be some of them. Were esoteric experiences when we are not in an esoteric experience sometimes when we've been in really esoteric in quotes whatever containers whether it's a healing ceremony or whatever it feels to forced for me and i actually don't always like it. 'cause i'm like this heels coralie esoteric right like everyone is trying too hard to be something and it feels inauthentic to me so i think we can make life as interesting as beautiful on spiritual as we really want it. If we just pay attention to it. And i find like the most esoteric moments are like with myself so i actually am filled up that way and then also i do feel like i have the friends and the not really the family but like the friend i can talk to you and have conversations and feel fulfilled in those conversations and in the exploration. But then you know. I noticed when i close expectations on relationships or conversations where i want them to be more esoteric or more whatever and how that is kind of a a lesson in itself totally. You know what i mean. Yeah just always teaches me that like he is really it can be really deep and he super spiritual but sometimes him bringing light to. Things is all the medicine i need. 'cause i am like toloi. Yes deep deep deep sometime. Sean will look for so long and then just like smile. Yes that's me. I'm like okay. Yeah literally he's like. Yeah you elissa. Romeo told him when we did our session. That she's like lindsay's not always gonna make sense. I love that lindsay's a little slow. You're like she's like out. Lindsey earmuffs lindy's second grade. You're so much because he's so logical and so in his head that like sometimes when i'm talking about things he's just like that's me hall. Just sometimes i just get tired talking to justin. And i just do half sentences. He's like what the fuck like. Don't you understand. I can teach him how to like exactly what you're talking. That's i've learned that this year. I'm like you need to let everyone in on the full. You say two words. That i'm like yeah. It's usually works and i'm like about the membership literally like web page blue. You're like yeah. We gotta redo that copy. I'm like you got it. You gotta be But that's the piece of suppressing yourself. That's what's really beautiful about the membership and allow the reason why lindsay.

JV and I am so excited that you joined us today.

You're on a mission to make an impact and build a highly profitable business so help me welcome our featured guest. He's a speaker. Author Mentor and coach. Whose mission is is to help each and every person achieved their absolute bestself? He's also the author of the overweight mine and the purpose of pain how to turn tragedy eighty in to triumph helped me welcome Jay Nixon J.. Welcome to the show. JV thanks for having me brother well. I've really excited. You're here because you are definitely a brother Oughta mission to make a difference. What's that positive impact or transformation that you help your customers achieve you know? I believe that it's it's my duty to help. People find a better way of living so being in the health and fitness industry being speaker getting the the opportunity to write books. I think everything I do is critical and is purposeful in the direction of helping people find their own way and in their own life. Whatever that looks like I love that and you know? That's so much of what conscious mooners about support entrepreneurs finding their mission their impact. Now I don't tell them what that is. I help him uncover it kind of like Michelangelo. In a sculpture the sculpture was already there according to Michelangelo. Hello I'm working with somebody. The purpose the the impact. They WANNA make. It's already inside of just releasing that and then fine profitable ways to do it. I'm curious curious. 'cause we decided today to talk about the magic of alignment. Why is a linemates so critical for entrepreneurs who really want to be very financially successful? Oh and do it in a way that they're not butchering up their values. They don't feel at the end of the day. They did something wrong. In fact they feel like the world's better I'll give you a quick story of how how I found my own alignment in through that. I came up with this idea. Of the magic of alignment prior to my current state of of helping helping people with transformational weight loss and writing books and and being a coach I was in the world of pharmaceuticals so every day I would I would take a bag full of drugs or I would recommend drugs and these were things that I would never ever put inside of my body I wouldn't I wouldn't allow my mother to take them my family any friends like I would never say. Hey you take this so I was really doing something. That was totally out of alignment with my I was I was non congruent. Every day never financial standpoint. I had a really good life. Oh you know company car expense account six figure income bonuses you name it but every morning when I got up there wasn't anything purposeful behind behind my day behind my mission that menu. I was at a meal inside. I'm curious I especially because you're a fitness Kim aesthetically. How did you due feed for probably lack of a better term It was one of those things. Where if I if I just focused on the dollars and sense then it? It was almost like a mask I could put on to get me through it but when I actually like sat down and thought about like what it was on a daily basis was I really helping people bull was hurting. People was I- misleading people. You know what it just felt very Very non congruent with my values and I won't won't even take an advil so I'm I'm not the guy to be out there peddling pharmaceuticals. It just wasn't in my purpose but I was chasing the dollar And that's what. Got Me off. Lineman is what got me off my path so there was kind of an adulterous inside when an entrepreneur fines alignment first of all. How does that feel? It's one of those undescribable things. If anybody listening to the people who are listening who have found they know what I'm talking about I'll give you an example. Also I'm really big on like analogies or giving real life examples so I get up at three thirty every morning seven days a week I might sleep till four on a Sunday. JVM ready to go. Like I have got. I'm so excited I've got so much fire I've got some. I can't wait to talk to my first client because I know that I'm going to change their life when I was doing the other thing when I was in the corporate world six thirty would roll around a look at the clock and be like not again not today you know it was. It was a depth of of loss that I didn't even want to get up and go do the job and now man. I'm ready to go with fired up about life so I'm curious as as as is a man who's been inching up my morning because I've been going to bed earlier because I took all the caffeine and sugar out and now by ten o'clock on just ready to go sleep because I've been Goi- six or seven. What time do you go to bed because I know that rest is very important? And you're about the whole rest part of not. Just how much energy do I after the day. So how have you recalibrated your life in terms of the evenings he told that's probably the number one when I tell people what time I get up in the morning. That's probably the number one on question that I get so I liked to be in bed so head on pillow about eight o'clock and my goal is to be asleep by eight thirty and I find if I get that in that window than than that. I'm perfect and then there's always throughout through our life. There's always higher points of stress right if I'm launching a book if I'm GonNa if I'm on a speaking tour or whatever it is so if I find myself in those heightened levels of like stress or just business then I'll even squeeze a little thirty minute NAP and they're they've actually shown scientifically that something as simple as a twenty to thirty minute little like just you know shut your eyes and recalibrate can be as beneficial will as a full night's sleep to some people who are sleep deprived so let's let's talk. You're listening today. I want you to imagine if right. Now you're you're feeling like your life doesn't totally work that even though you own your business it. It doesn't feel like you're there yet. It feels like you're still too focused on the money part in the absence. Money part being focused on his great. But if it's only money in the absence of meaning that's just when I think we. We get out of alignment with ourselves. J What would you say is the first step when you were going back you were working in pharmaceuticals and then when you decided to make a shift make shift make shift. What was the first step? You talk in making that. Shift it this you know. It's a little a bit cliche but I believe that the only way to make a transformation is to take action in the moment of decision on a lot of people will all. I'm going to do this like this is what I'm GonNa do. I'M GONNA the lead the pharmaceutical world and I'm going to take action I literally Quit my job. I had a plan I had my plan together of Mike. You know where I was going to train Matt. My fitness my the ideas of what I was GONNA do. I made sure I had a financial nest egg that I was going to be fine for six months to a year and and I went to a went to work I went to work live and my passion on a daily basis. I started with one client and now I'll see forty clients at my first class in the morning so so you started a fitness gym. Or did you start as a trainer in somebody else's yes so what I did is actually I rented space so in the fitness world. You can rent space from another gym. And so when I first started. I rented space on like a monthly basis. So I'd say hey you can rent this gym and use it with my clients. I did that for probably about a year and a half. I went to a couple of different gyms. Just because I'm I'm really I'm a clean freak. I like things a certain way. I'm unemployable Oh and I'm also not good at being in other people's places because I'm very kind of OCD when it comes to like how you doing things it really really high level so luckily away from me. My business flooded complete labs renting the entire bottom of a country club and we got one of the worst rains in Palm Desert California you've ever had in my entire business. This was lost overnight and that forced me to open my own studio and it has been the best thing that's ever happened to me so on your journey Ernie because I'd like to talk about your entrepreneurial journey to getting to that first million. What was it that you did that? Worked the best out of all the things she tried. And you'd go if I were telling someone listening today. Hey this might be a path for you and maybe their content is different. But how you get it. What would you advise someone someone so two things? I surrounded myself with the best possible support group. Possible it's the old adage of you know you're the five people you hang around the most host but I really do believe that if you're gonNA make a transformational pivot in your life or if you've already made that pivot and you're not getting the results that you want. You Might WanNa assess the people that you have have in your coveted circle. I call it your circle of success and so I was lucky enough to create a circle of success that not only supported me. You know but they. They gave me ideas. They helped me do things. Like I'm a big believer that you can't be coached without a coach right so of all. I'm always part of a mastermind group. I'm always have a personal coach depending on what Project Project I'm working on that was really key pivotal. I hired a coach and then I did things differently. JV I didn't do what everybody else was doing. So I remember we're going online and there was this guy selling ninety nine dollar program and it was a ninety nine dollar new year's challenge. It was a six week. Challenge any basically. This is what you do this. This this is how you get people in and this is how you do it. I bought the ninety nine dollar program and I said you know what this isn't. This isn't congruent with me. So I made up my own and I have turned that ninety ninety nine dollars into seven figures. Time over time. It's been it's been one of the craziest things I've ever seen. My wife always jokes about me by nine hundred dollar product and turn that into you know multiple multiple multiple six figures seven figures in a in a in a massive way. So if you're going to tell someone someone what not to do it go. Hey this is what I did but this is. Maybe it's something that you did or something that you realized along the way. Hey this is not the path to make yourself a millionaire or to make millions. What would you tell someone not to do? So when I first started out remember. Zero clients started with one. Client the the easiest thing to do would have been able to be the cheapest guy in town right because that's what everybody does when they don't have businesses they lower their prices because they always and let. Let's stop there because that is so important. Yeah almost every client. I can't up. I would say a large number and we double their rates pretty quickly and we know double just gouge them because they weren't appropriate. They weren't the right rates for that they were getting. I think the number one reason people use low rates in coaching. Shing or any kind of service business is. They're afraid they won't get the client when in fact the rate until you've gone through this like you and I have you really really can't totally get it because it just sounds like an intellectually. Good idea that you've read in a marketing book. But the rate has nothing to do with it. The rate may change who you attract but it has nothing to do with closing the right client nothing zero and so that would be. That would be the one thing I would say is. Don't think you have to be the cheapest sky town the cheapest gallon town I base all of my decisions. I Made I base all my purchasing decisions off of value. What value will this bring to my life? I don't make any decision based on the numeric number because I think money's just energy and so I kept a stayed true to those those values in those standards that I had set for myself and my personal life and I put that out to the world and said if I'm bringing enough value to my space people will pay the rate that I've set to pay and like I said now I have you know tons of clients. Nobody's nobody's complaining about the radiator of that nature It's it's extreme value and you know it's interesting getting just as a closing park. We're going to be taking a break in a moment folks. We're GONNA come back. We're going to have a twenty four hour challenge at Jay's going to give you and we're going to have the millionaire entrepreneur questions there's going to be value packed. I want you to stay tune. But here's the simple formula. If you want to add more value you either up the value of what you're doing up the hours but if you up the Roi value you can actually take down the hours because the hours are superfluous and most everybody early on wants to sell ours they think. Oh if I'm charging more I can add more hours. No you have to add more value and value can only be measured in Roi. What's the return on every dollar? Someone invested. It didn't you. Are they getting two dollars. Three dollars. Five dollars ten dollars back and can you measure it. That's when you know that you have a great value proposition. We're here with Jay Nixon. He is the author of overweight mind and also the purpose of pain how to turn tragedy into triumph. And we've been discussing the magic chick of alignment. If you just joined us on a radio show.

My personal cell at three zero three six six four one zero four zero one welcome back. I'm Javy criminal. Third the host of the conscious millionaire show and I have our featured guest with us today Jay Nixon author of the overweight mind Jay. Thank you so much for joining us again today with nowhere else. Ed Rather be buddy well. I'm glad that you're here. I WANNA give a big shout out to Kapalua Maui Hawaii and yes sedona Arizona. Jay and I were just having a conversation about about. I've been there every season. What is the season that Jay likes? He said Spring Love Spring there. But I gotTa Tell You folks winters very nice and let me on a hint if you you want to go to sit down at when there's nobody there it's winter you can have the whole hotel to yourself. Just choose which hotel you stay in Jay. Could you give the twenty four hour challenge to everyone. Everyone listening today. Absolutely I would like for you guys to focus on or find an area in your business. That feels like it's out of alignment so identified area in your business. That feels out of alignment and write it down so you can take some action on it. I think that's great. Because because the alignment of course is always measured. Is it an alignment with who you are living on purpose. Are you living. What may feel like you're calling? Are you doing what you think. You're on the planet to be doing because if you're doing that and you build your business model correctly it's almost impossible to not be successful because you're going to have the fire in your valley. You're going to be absolutely energized to move forward and Jay. You're saying that every day you get up so excited to work with your clients absolutely but I think when you love what you do it. It's transferable you can't transfer that to someone else that you don't feel and so I know when I get up fired up and excited that my clients. The people that I get to interact act with. They can feel that they can see that. And that's the that's the transformational piece for me folks. It is time for the millionaire entrepreneur questions and and let's start off Jay with mindset. What is the mindset that you have? You've got multiple verticals in your business. That help you discover the best business opportunities. -tunities I think this is kind of a you know it's very you know overplayed today's society but I really do. Every day. I start my day with my with my gratitude and my daily intention attention and so if I'm always clear on leading with gratitude leading with the things that I'm grateful and thankful for and then I set my intention for the day it's very. He's very difficult for me. To get out of alignment or to get off course because I can always come back to those as my gps. In so whenever you have those things in your life and you're leading with the gratitude and you've got the intention of what it is that you want to accomplish today. In every day my intention evolve around making the people that I come in contact with making their world. Better place some way some shape some how it might be a conversation. It might be a handshake at behold simple simple as holding the door but but I wanted to big little or big things to make a difference in people's world so your mindset really is the attention of how much value can you bring an out of bringing that value you find your opportunities one hundred percent. I never think about like you talked about earlier about time. Like I don't really think about time ever. I think it's one of those things that was created created by somebody somewhere somehow who was trying to get through the day as fast as they could for me really kind of block it out and I I focus on the attention the value in the in the level of lime that I'm the conversations that I'm having that's way more important than the time involved so let's turn from mindset mindset to strategy you have multiple verticals. You've made millions of dollars. You've been highly successful. What is a strategy that you could share? That would empower our entrepreneurs listening to become more profitable in their businesses totally. Some strategies are based around my core values. It's it's one of the things things that keeps me on the right track so if I'm doing enough I'm giving myself in the way that I know that I have to be my whole business model was set up on. I wanted to give back wanted to help. People Live Better Life. I wanted to give people the tools and the knowledge that that they needed. So I'm always doing something to bring value so just recently really. I'm every year at my local fitness studio. We collect peanut butter or we collect money to to to get peanut butter To help feed the homeless or the the nutritional challenged or people that can't afford food I do Choi drives. I'm always doing something to give back because I think that. Keeps me in alignment with WHO I am so I always tell people like if you're having a bad day if you're not things aren't going the way that you want them to go the best thing you can do is to do something else for somebody and that will get you back into that positive frame of mind. Yup absolutely agree you know conscious. Millionaires take conscious focus action in facts. That's the conscious millionaire formula for creating reading wealth it applies in multiple directions. Not just on making money. But I'm curious. What action do you take daily to make a bigger contribution? You've been talking about some of that already. Yeah it goes right in line with kind of my my ethos which is like what I'm with gratitude. My intention Making my setting up my day in in the fashion that I know it needs to be set up in so that I can get to where I WANNA go. I think so often we don't have a plan and so when the when there's no plan then everything sends a breakdown and then when things break down it's Kinda why talk about eighty percent mindset in twenty percent mechanics mechanics will always breakdown. Whether that's your you're the food you're eating you'll just you'll fall off your diet without your workout. You won't go to the gym but if your mindset strong enough of that eighty percent level then you'll have the tools and the resources necessary. Sorry to correct the twenty percent really really quickly. Most people aren't that strong with their mindset so when the mechanics break it takes them back to square one so I'm hyper focused on and my met at my mindset. Now do that through meditation journaling to all of the the normal things. That sounds very easy and almost archaic but those the little all things make the biggest difference is in the world absolutely and we were talking before one of the reasons. I'm fasting on Saturdays and doing intermittent fasting twelve hours. A day is part heart health and part just pure discipline to discipline myself to be at be living at a higher state you know. I'm curious we're going to go to a book that you would like to recommend but I I'd like to talk for a moment about overweight mine tell us about yearbook yes. The overweight mine is the first book that that I wrote. It was about two and a half years old and so in working with clients for several years I started to see patterns and themes which really. That's what we are in life is. We are patterns or themes were habits abbots were rituals and. I noticed that I was helping. People have success but something without with something would always happen at adversely would pop up in their life might be a family thing or a work thing or whatever and they would always regress some of them would regress further than others and so I started creating my own system in my own formula for how to you work with my clients bigger than the eat. This don't eat that bigger than this is how you work out and I really started a push my focus to the eighty percent psychology. So I started doing training calls and recorded training videos about like. Hey this is what happens. When adversity comes up taught them how to reframe situations like look look for the positive in the situation? How can I use that in every other area of my life? So I teach him four pillars. So I teach in health and fitness relationships. Money any and then spirituality and I think all four of those circles or buckets are in abundance. Like that's where you hit the sweet spot. But if one of those four is out out of alignment it will rob from the other four or vice versa and you will become massively out of alignment and things will go south. So that's why I teach that eighty percent psychology I mean eighty percent mindset but I agree with you because I focus mindset strategies and execution. So it's the internal and external as well and I tell all my clients eighty percent of what you're going to accomplish awfullest whether you're going to accomplish x or x squared in the next twelve months is going to have eighty percent of it's going to be your mindset and let's be clear mindset isn't it just limiting beliefs mindsets how you choose to think about opportunities mindsets how you approach problem solving. All of that is part of nine set. What's the book doc that you'd like to recommend for everyone listening today if I could? JV I'd like to quickly add something to your list. Mindset is simple as the word Jews bright right and so focused on that the book the book I'd like to recommend is becoming supernatural by Dr Joe Dispense Thank you and I both share the same love for the book. So it's it's an amazing read. I think you guys are really enjoy it. Yeah it's a great read out. Give a shoutout to guy if I went to the becoming supernatural two and a half day with Dr Joe to spins spins in boulder because happened to live in Denver. And what an amazing program you can catch that on if you have a subscription to it you know what are the best waist for listeners to reach out to you Jay. The simplest way is probably through my instagram. which is just my name Jay Nixon? That's J. A. Y.. and Exxon dot thrive fitness so t h e the word fitness and. You can find me right there and we'll have all the ways that you can get in touch with J. B. A.. Follow of his and be connected acted him on social media just go to conscious millionaire's show dot com. And then scroll down. You'll see the title of today's show the magic of alignment you. You'RE GONNA go cocker all kinds of new worlds. You're going to go climb all kinds of new summits. What's that next summit that you wanNA climate what might be a challenge or obstacle you have to overcome in order to reach it? So what am I.. Goals is to double my business next year. which sounds really lofty I'm seriously yeah when you do the mindset work that I do and and I have a belief in myself that I've never have never not accomplish something something that I set out to do. I'll figure out a way to make it happen. there's going to be adversities that pop up along the way. I think a lot of people forget that in. When you're growing your business business you still gotta deal with Your Business? So it's not like I can put all my efforts into the growth or the you know the acquisition. You still got a handle your existing day to day tasting clientele. And so that'll be. That'll be the adversity piece. But I think as long as I stay with my mindset intact keep my daily rituals and standards inhabits in place this. There's no reason why I can't do that. And the reason I WANNA double it. I think there's got to be a reason behind why you want to do something. I know that if I could double my business my impact on the world both from a philanthropic being able like I talked about the peanut butter drive. I collected almost twenty five hundred jars of peanut butter in two weeks. I double my business. That goes does the five maybe seven thousand. Think about the people I can help you know we. We cumulated a couple thousand dollars. I go five thousand dollars. So we're feeding more people are toy drive goes to now our all of a sudden. We're not just taking care of three hundred kids. Take care of a thousand kids. So that's really what drives me is. I want to have a bigger impact and I think we can. If if that's the motive for for your growth can't lose what's a legacy. You WanNA leave Jay. I want people to believe that I had the best intentions attention for them. Like I have in the business that I'm in. It can be very difficult because it's not. It's not a monetary type business when you're hoping someone lose like three hundred pounds or get control of their diabetes or things of that nature. It's a difficult. It's a really challenging thing to do because they're dealing with so much more than the fact that they. I love potato chips in so I want the legacy that I- leaves. I want people to know that at the end of the day like I truly cared about their success and their happiness. I love that because I think that's so important and I think that's the difference between a conscious entrepreneur and somebody who's just trying to make a transaction. Is everybody the I have. The honor of working with the people I talked to the people are have guests on the show truly want to make a difference with their lives. It's it's what gets them up in the morning and they wanna be financially successful but that only makes sense if you're making a difference and you're doing it right and you're building a business than it should be financially successful as well. Welcome to the going deeper segment of the conscious millionaire show with Jay Nixon author of overweight mine and the purpose of pain how to turn tragedy into triumph. And and today. We're GONNA talk about transformational fitness. You truly are fitness guru. You've got supplements you've got a gem. You do training online. You go speak you work with a home teams in large corporations. I mean you're covering so many bases let's start with a transformation happens to be one of my favorite words some so happy that we chose this. What is the difference between regular fitness? Where you're trying to lose weight lift weights and transformational fitness in today's world? I think regular fitness is still on stuck in that archaic nature of some kind of Diet. There's some kind of quick fix. There's some kind of lotion or potion or There's some kind of eating plan that's going to get you this really rapid Success in IT'S GONNA be over with well as we know that's that's it's not true. It's if it was the Diet. Industry wouldn't be a billion dollar plus industry on there wouldn't be a new diet pop up they wouldn't have rebranded the Kito Jin uh all they do is rebrand the Atkins Diet into the Ketogenic Diet and they just keep changing that so what I believe. Transformational fitnesses is. I don't even allow people to use the D. word so there's oceans things diet I believe in creating lifestyles lifestyles that are sustainable. Attainable for you. Not For me not for anybody else so. I don't work with people like that that that won't get the quick fix to go to the Bahamas so they can look good in the Bikini for instagram. I try to work with people who really want to transformation in their lifestyle. People that have have major metabolic diseases so diabetes heart disease things of that nature because a transformation occurs when they no longer have to worry about that Indian their last laugh prematurely. So that's really Kinda. Why focus when I'm thinking of transformational fitness so let's delve into we? We've been talking about the magic of alignment linemen. How does transformational fitness fit into that concept of being allied with yourself and being aligned with your path? You're talking about things that that I've had to deal with reversing reversing type two diabetes having a heart attack changing my diet using the word because I changed it because what I was doing wasn't working it. Obviously I didn't have a gene for any of the stuff I created it so it started with the transformation personally started with taking full responsibility that I I was the guy who created all of this now if I want to create something different. It's like I living without the sugar. I don't have any caffeine. You know you call it and I agree with you that I changed my entire life. I sold my wine collection. Lebanon hundred bottles which which was daunting since I spent five years putting that together -gether but you know what I have missed it. I said I WANNA do whatever it takes to optimize my health. That's what's important to me that seems to me that that's the record that transformational experience it one of the things that I'm always fascinated by is when you know. The three hundred pound man has a heart attack back in and unfortunately passes away and then everyone says Oh. I can't believe Rick suddenly had a heart attack written suddenly have anything that heart attacks been coming on. So I don't believe there's interesting is suddenly syndrome like you said you've created most of your health issues on in and if you create them you can then also create them or recreate them in a more positive fashion so for me what happens. Is People people come in weight. Losses are really sensitive subject for a lot the people because most people remember this have tried and failed so many times that they no longer believe in themselves. JV and when you don't believe in in J I have been end there so I understand exactly what that's like the likelihood of you having success if you don't believe in yourself is slim to none so what I have to do is I have to convince them. Initially that I believe in them more than they believe in themselves and then I have to shift that to where they slowly but surely through a series of of stacking momentum start to believe in their selves. Like this is different. I can do this. This is something that's because here's the deal. People aren't overweight just because I said earlier because they like doughnuts donuts because they like cake or chips for popcorn. It's always something deeper. It's always something deeper. It's a it was a trauma. It was the way they feel about a certain thing. It was an event. Dan Do something but very few people are just overweight because donuts tastes good. Just not the way it works well and I agree with you and previous season. He's in season five. I talked about this openly. And whether he was one of the most liberating things was to discuss that I was sexually abused going up. And in my case when I've done the deep work because I agree with you I you know I've gone and gotten certified in health right. It's not about the knowledge actually really it's about being willing to look in the mirror and look inside and it's painful at times but to do the deep work and allow yourself to touch it and say oh. Oh this is what's going on. Let's he'll this. Let's complete this. Let's get closure on this piece and what I found. Oh you know you're an expert on this so I'm going more from my experience that in my case every bit of weight every bit of health risks related to internal internal emotions and not just emotions but energy energy being clogged in one place or you know stock and not moving because the the energy had been stuffed down. That's transformational fitness. JV What you just described you just described getting to the root of that and working on that. Because if you don't don't if you don't tap into that the real cause weight loss is a side effect of whatever it is. It's really going on inside of you. Weight loss will also be a side effect of or weight. Gain is a side effect of what's going on inside of you. Weight loss will also be a side effect of you getting closure or getting understanding or getting comfortable with that uncomfortable. Comfortable thing that you've got that mask on for that you're hiding behind or you don't WanNa talk about. You know. This is kind of an interesting way to end. This segment is is the difference between having to feel in control and being able to enter the mystery of the unknown Or the uncomfortable or that part of that part of your path where you don't actually know what's unfolding next to commute that's been part of the transformation you know. I'm curious how that comes into play in your work with your clients total. It's the whole reason. I wrote a second the book the purpose of pain because most people there's a purpose behind and if you can start to look at it with that with that Lens in not that I always tell my clients really really really bad. Things happen to really really great people. And there's a purpose behind what you went through. And when you can find that you can actually turn that tragedy in create it into something really really powerful something that has so much momentum that you won't stop like I guarantee you sit since you came out and talked about that in season five. I guarantee your trajectory or there's been difference in you obsolete every totally and the interesting thing was. I didn't do it for a personal motive. I said you're ready to talk his talk about this. But I talked about it from a healing perspective that I had to go through learning to have boundaries because I actually grew up with all my boundaries violated. It'd be know what they were right I to go through those different stages but the the miracle for me was twenty four hours after the show aired for the first time in my life right now been dirt either journey with this for a long time. I said Oh my gosh. It happened in the past. And that was the beginning of me stopping opping living it in the president. That's what most people think they think they're past dictates who they are in the present and that could not be further from the truth it may it. May If anything you pass can give you power in the president if you can harness it correctly but most people have the missed. The disillusion that that because something happened to them they are no longer valuable. They're no longer worthy. They're no longer what they could have been if that then had to happen and I try to get them to refrain added. Say because of what happened to you you can even be. You can be more powerful than you've ever even thought like it you can turn that around. Use It for good. We're here with Jay Nixon author of the book overweight. Mind again all the information. The questions that we've asked on the show the millionaire entrepreneur section. All of. That's going to be on the show notes at conscious millionaire. Show DOT com.

The Social Dilemma. 2020 is Not All Bad. Adulting is Hard. Dogs & Love.

4 Things with Amy Brown

The Social Dilemma. 2020 is Not All Bad. Adulting is Hard. Dogs & Love.

"Hey, everybody today's episode is sponsored by the New Mazda C X Thirty you know, Robert. This past December when I was out in California for the Mazda things. So I got a chance to try out the X. Thirty on a road trip from palm desert to San Diego and I was riding along with someone all you listeners might know miles grave from our cousin podcasts the daily Zeitgeist. Uh so miles and I each took a turn driving through the mountains along the way and we both got. To experience the terrain, the awesome occasionally Olympics Mons like desert landscape the those mountains in southern California really something else is beautiful country, but we got to do it as both driver and a passenger since we traded off in about halfway through, and we also got a great feel for the features that make the Mazda C X thirty really stand out in its class. You can check out the new theory yourself at Mazda USA dot com slash Iheart or see it in person at your local Mazda dealership. Are Get togethers have been a little different lately they're now virtual. We've been doing birthday parties and happy hours on zoom and we facetime with our friends and family. We actually facetime one of our friends while we baked together and one thing I love to have on hand for all of our happy hours baking and cooking are China brand products. They're durable trusted products but let us enjoy every moment of our get togethers traditional or not. They've got plates. Cups Cutlery to go coffee cups. They've totally got you covered and you can get them without leaving home. China products are available through any online retailer or grocery store. Never, lot. Little. South. Always. Thirty. Was Pretty, beautiful thing. Back. Up because. He came. With Amy Braquet so and I were faced timing last weekend and he said have you seen the new documentary that just came out on Netflix about the social media it's called social dilemma and my thought no, I don't even know what you're talking about never heard of it but I am always looking for something good to watch on Netflix. So of course, I immediately watch it within two days of you telling me and it's crazy it's mind. So pretty much it's a documentary that explores kind of all of these creators have made some of these things within facebook twitter Google instagram but like we loved like even the guy that made the like button on facebook and it kind of just talks about how their initial creations have become this thing that have not been used the way they intended and how like there's this big ethical question in play in Silicon Valley anyways. It's the craziest thing you'll see I saw a one review that said after watching it will make you WanNa Smash your phone and just not even So if yellow, curious about the official description, it says, this documentary drama hybrid explores the dangerous human impact of social networking with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations, the rotten tomatoes critic scores, ninety, two percent. So you know it's good and this is what critic said about it. What the film tells us doesn't Constitute Breaking News, but its value lies in pulling together some alarming if abstract concepts into a genuinely scary whole, but it's terrifying. I i. totally. Agree I used to think okay I'm a cool mom I mean I am. So why wouldn't I give my daughter and instagram? Account. She was on Tiktok mostly she was using mine, but she deleted that on her own she's a rule follower, but it's just freaky I'm even on it. I'm not so much on facebook instagram I go to social media what about you? For sure. Yeah I know some people just lean towards twitter some facebook but for me, it's instagram. So you know I think in general we know look you need to go watch the documentary to understand the part that we're talking about but I'll lean into more of what you may understand without watching the documentary and again it's not stuff that's going to come as a huge surprise, but it's just going to blow your mind a little bit. But then what we do know is how social media can make us feel at times and I did see this article? About, our mental wellbeing and things that we can do to kind of reverse. Maybe if we're feeling down because we've been on social media and I highly encourage digital cleanses the on the weekend like scheduled time where you completely put your phone away you're not on it or maybe you do it during a weekday just make sure you're being intentional about that. But pretty much this is nothing that's breaking news either. But it's always a good reminder to hear that if you do good feel good and that's what the article was all about random acts of kindness improve well. More. So than say chase if you were to be a scheduled volunteer like say you volunteer time but every Saturday you go down to the shelter and you're working for five hours, there's something about a random like spontaneous act of kindness that leads people to forming more social connections because they're more casual about it and it's an informal interaction like you never know who you might need or. What it may do to improve your day it's not part of your routine something really enticing about that for us, and so I mean feel good news stories or something we try to incorporate into the bobby bones show with our tell me something good segments. I know that the news can be daunting, but even they're doing a better job of trying to sprinkle in a feel good segment, and of course, we try to do that here on the podcast. But this is also just a friendly reminder that if you are feeling down about anything or you're looking to booster wellbeing has maybe you've been on instagram too long. then. You know look out for those random opportunities to be kind to somebody or help somebody and again doesn't have to be monetary could be opening the door for somebody and circling back to what we talk about on the show all the time pimp enjoy, which is all about choosing joy for yourself and spreading joy to others. You can look for opportunities throughout your day or your week to Pinson. Some to somebody like you were saying, I think even the simplicity of like embracing strangers is just there's something so authentic about it. You know like obviously doing a random act of kindness is like a beautiful thing but. It's amazing. Just acknowledging strangers and how far that can go someone day I think is pretty remarkable. The report did say that one of the random acts could be stopping to help an elderly neighbor groceries or maybe at the grocery store you look for someone now coronavirus just those a wrench in helping elderly at times because chase I gotTa Tell You my dad is such a rule follower and he doesn't want to get in trouble at his assisted living place. We were on a walk been an I, the dog and Stevenson, and we didn't have masks. We plan on seeing my dad, but we're walking right next to. His assisted living place I called him I said, Hey, what are you doing? He said I'm about to do my walk. So he does laps around the building and he's finally to the where he's allowed to go do it on his own, but he has to wear a mask and he can't interact with people and I was like, well, we're GONNA. We'll just wave from across the parking lot and he came out and he knew he didn't have masks on and he knew he didn't WanNA get in trouble. So he just kind of looked at us in power walk and he was like high and waved and like just. Almost like he didn't even know us and Stevenson looked at me and said, mom, why is Popol ignoring us I said well, I don't think he wants to get his walking privileges taken away if he's busted talking to us without masks even if we are really far away, he just doesn't even want to risk. And I use that as a learning opportunity for Stevenson, about how we all have choices and I said, you know how we've been working on you making choices for yourself and choosing the the right thing. Well, PAP had two choices he could waive from afar and continue on his walk and follow the rules or he could have come over and then gotten in trouble and then lost his privilege to walk but he chose what was best for him and Stevenson was like Oh. Okay and it was like, okay this is what it took to resonate choices with you. So. Yeah. So that was you know my dad being elderly and not being able to really get out and about. So anyway, this is back to the article of using elderly people as an example but maybe there's an elderly person in your neighborhood that you know can't go out and shop maybe you could order some groceries for them online or you can go to the grocery store for them and drop them off their porch. See if there's anything they need that could be a random way for you to look to help somebody or do they. Need prescriptions picked up from the drugstore I mean I have to go to Walgreens from dad at least once a week. So I know that there's elderly people there that maybe don't have a way to get certain things that they need just because you're going to ask him anything anything from the store don't expect like this long grocery lists that's going to be overwhelming or too expensive. It could be like, Hey, I'll leave my credit card for you out on the porch. Can you go grab my prescription easy peasy I'll say that to my son. I think it's a great idea. Okay. Wrapping up the first thing here. Basically, you gotta go watch the social dilemma on Net flicks and then once you been on social media too much because we know you're still GonNa do it anyway and you're feeling down in the dumps about things then your wellbeing by helping other people that's the takeaway from this thing. Last week as part of our four things line, we've released a shirt that says, it's fine. I'm fine. Everything is fine. Those are the four lines because Mary had been saying that to herself a lot I've been saying it a lot and we thought you know what that's that can be made into four things and we know our four things community are people will probably really like this twenty twenty has been a real turn. But early in the week I have had jumped in the pool close on this. Whole thing. I was really stressed out after really taxing day I. Don't know if I've told you about that chase I talked about it on the bobby bones show and did a thing on instagram but maybe you didn't see it. But definitely were in the throes of things in our household and I had reached my limit and I walked outside and jumped in the pool with my clothes on now my cell phone, not my shoes but something about it just felt so good and so free and I felt like. In the ocean even though I was contained in my pool. But then Mary Thought after that that it's time, it's time to maybe make that shirt. So we put a poll up and tons of people said, yes, please make it. So now those are available which Super Bowl but then I see an article this week that's titled Not that bad and I click on it and it was basically saying that this year may seem like a total disaster but twenty twenty hasn't been all bad because there's positive things that have come out of it like the family connections that people have been having but then my brain immediately goes well but actually there's some. People that haven't been able to be around their family corona virus but then I tried to keep positive and not go negative but they mentioned how telemedicine is health care more accessible than ever and people have figured out a way to do things virtually, which is helpful for a lot of people. anti-racist books are topping bestseller lists and that is a result of some hard things we've been through in twenty twenty, which is awesome i. think it's Great. People are wanting to learn more about that an online, some things, and then way more people are washing their hands I mean. That is an awesome, and then lastly, it said that Americans have adopted hundreds of thousands of shelter pets. It's not that bad. You know I had a rough week and looking back and I'm like, you know everything good in my life has come from a season of growth and I've had to grow. It hasn't been easy. So I'd like to think aside from the things that have just felt good like spending. Time with family and all that the wall look back be like you know that year forced me to do some things that I needed to do for a long time. Yeah. I agree I've grown the hard times and that is exactly what I'm trying to look for. In these moments I don't know yet what is going to come of this particular season that I'm in but I know eventually I'll be thankful. For the time being I know that jumping the on my clothes on makes me feel really really really good and who circle back real quickly to sweater when I first saw that pop up I laughed so hard because guys that is literally Amy's response to me whenever I'm like how you don't like that. That is literally word for word usually. I'm good. Meanwhile, Jaycees everything burning down in the background. The whole. One thing that has definitely helped me with my mood is limiting news but I also feel really out of it because I used to watch way more news, and then now I'm just consumed by other things. It's kind of happen. I know that I need to limit my news anyways because it's toxic but it's happening organically because I have to focus on other things. So and I do see that mentally I'm doing better with that not watching so much news or are you limiting news? Kind of my rule of thumb what's news is I watch thirty minutes in the morning and then maybe thirty minutes at night and try to watch on a network that isn't like opinion based like I. Always Joke like Good Morning, America that something important in the world they're going to tell you in the first thirty minutes and like it's usually not like filled with opinions so I just. Try, to limit myself to thirty minutes in the morning and try not to read articles in regards to news on social media at all you mean, if the news is on social media, you don't read it. Yeah. Yeah. If you for whatever reason or just randomly listening to the second thing and you didn't hear the first thing, then go back and listen to that because you'll chases thing that. I know that expert after expert on stress and wellbeing they say limit your news obviously, you need to be informed but make sure you set a timer. Don't just have it on in the background all day which when we were in stay at home like shelter in place every part of the country called it something different. We have the news on all day long and that's probably when I hit a low with new stress if you WANNA call it that. But if you're finding yourself having anxiety from the news, make sure you're you're limiting it and then yeah unfo- any. People or news places on social media that you don't really necessarily need to have that stuff in your feed per se, and then another thing that has added a lot of stress which again I know this year is not been all that bad. But we have the election coming up I mean anytime I say is not all that bad because I shared the little positive things like a bunch of puppies got adopted from raising. Like the minute comes out of my mouth I'm like yet actually, no, this year has sucked a lot of people and it is a really bad year and it's going to go down as one of the worst years that we were ever alive. I'm sure but to just pile on, we have the election, which is real bummer because everybody gets so crazy town it's just so divisive right now, and I'm going to tell like a real quick story. It's kind of along with this but I'm in New York City right. Now and last week was September eleven and it was the first time I've been in the city on nine eleven and I was in Dunkin donuts at about eight, forty five, and then you heard the chimes eight, forty six, which you know signified the first plane hitting the first hour and this woman like literally put down her purse and reach back and grab this man's hand, and then he reached back and grabbed mine, and then there was like eight of us and Dunkin donuts the produced a moment like held hands. Didn't say a thing and then just like go and kept on going with your day and it was just the whole day of being in the city. Reminded you what it felt like immediately following that horrible day and everything that happened and how the country felt unified, and so I just share that because I guess like I just feel like there's been days especially gearing up to this election when I'm just like Oh my God why can't we get like why can't we have a conversation anymore and then I think Back to that, and I'm like man, it gives me hope you know what I mean like just reminds me that we've been able to come together before and I hope it doesn't take something that terrible to bring us together again but I still love this country and I love the people I don't agree with but right now it feels like it's just so heavy in the midst of that that that's a really cool story Eggert goosebumps when you told at but then I instantly thought, did you hand sanitizer it after? Legit all and it's funny because in New York like it's a mandatory mask order. So like when you're down the street, everyone's in a mask because they're trying to keep everything contained. So I had the bulb it was like Oh. We're doing this we're we're holding, but then we all pass around sanitizer and I felt like it was worth it. Yeah totally. I think that's a good reminder that there is hope and there are special moments like that happening and nobody was concerned. About who are you voting for this election before I grab her hand and have this moment. So I saw that like fifty percent of Americans. Say that the twenty twenty presidential election is a significant stressor and while I find it to be completely obnoxious and annoying the people that are so one way and not willing to talk it's not one of my main stressors right now. But if you're one of the people that is maybe posting your opinion strongly online or you're putting. Words out there that are hurtful towards a party that doesn't agree with you. I WANNA share with you a post that I saw Jenny Allen put up on instagram she's at Ginny s Allen She's been on the podcast before she's the founder of if gathering and she put this in her main post and then I'll read you the caption as well but she typed up I know everyone is all worked up about politics and a pandemic but don't forget someone reading your words. Tonight. Just found out they have cancer or they're in painful marriage or their home is threatened by fires or they doubting their faith or they are so lonely tonight they might explode or they are trying hard not to fall back into addictions. So that was what she put in the picture part and then the caption she wrote I know the issues matter but life didn't stop for a pandemic life hasn't stopped for an election be kind and to anyone suffering in any way. We would love to pray for you tonight, just leave a comment, and if you pray for the comment, tell them or like their post, and if you can't say it publicly, then all you gotta stay for prayer is unspoken and we'll pray for that too. So I, thought man thank you Jimmy Allen. That was so special and it gave people and she had almost two thousand comments of people saying their specific need and the other saying, Hey, I'm praying for you she had. Other people commenting unspoken and others are like, Hey, I got you and it was stranger's coming together. Now I know again in the first thing, we talked about how instagram can be bad and social media's awful. But this is Jenny using her platform and her followers or even if you don't have a platform, you just have your friends and family following you this is using it for good and I love that she put that reminder out there that don't forget someone reading your. Words tonight just found out they have cancer or they are this or they're that and when you put your hurtful words out there or your opinion. So strongly that they are not accepting of somebody else that doesn't agree it's so it's just like it gross. So let's be bigger than that. Let's be better than I. Know None of my listeners really do this but maybe somebody you know might need to listen to this episode and be reminded that it just doesn't get us. Anywhere and I know that when we have leaders and those running in politics saying nasty things, it's hard but it's also that just adds to the frustration of okay. We'll the people at the top are doing it and talking this way and being nasty. Why can't we have people just be civilized, but that's just too much to ask. So there you go. Again, I'll just close out this thing by circling back to the start of it that this year's not that bad russell. Remember anti-racist books are the top selling books right now, their best sellers. So we are here for that and more people are washing their hands. It's amazing. Hey everybody today's episode is sponsored by the new Mazda C X thirty. So lately, we've been trying to do our part to be cautious and do what we can for public health. So we've been cooped up in the house a lot not a getting out a lot Robert. Is there anything you kind of miss about the road trip or going on long drives? Well, I have to say there's there is something really cool about having a long drive. Hopefully, you know like driving through the mountains or something and you get to really dive into a particular album just really experienced it beginning to end while taking in the scenery also a great time for the children to learn about metal machine music. So when miles gray and I drove the Mazda. C. X thirty from Palm Desert. San Diego I really enjoyed the scenery along the way and I feel like the car itself helped a lot with that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call an essential EST approach. So well, it's got a lot of features like in car WIFI vehicle status, navigation displays, etc. It really doesn't feel crammed with distracting lights in visual decoy. And speaking of features the six thirty also has a really good factory soundsystem. They loaded the car up with some high definition. Sample tracks us to try like we listen to Daft punk and that sounded great. Hey, for everybody else if you want more information on Mazda and the first ever Mazda C.

I saw this thing that said, here's some tough things that people have to do to become full-fledged adults. So let's break these telling your parents that you are just not going to agree with them about certain things was that hard for you at times as you matured into an adult and if you lean a different direction than or are you still kind of the same? Kind of enjoy leaning into that argument with my parents. Struggle with that one but that is very adult. Some adults still can't sit at the dinner table and have a conversation with their parents about maybe they don't agree with certain things. They just don't even want to ruffle the feathers. So why even go there then another thing that it had was removing friends from your life that you grew up with who are simply no longer good for you. It's been there before and is for sure adult. I can these are like serious adult like my adult things? Are Getting guest. Laundry. Like. Okay. Maybe I need to grow up a little bit more because another one is realizing that some people are making the transition from crazy kid who parties little too much to person who has a problem with drinking and drug use and I feel, yeah, that's probably more of a twenty s type adult thing. But even as I approach forty, there's Times where I've even had to evaluate not being party Kid but evaluate what am I using to numb myself and whether it's been my eating Disorder or after my mom died or after the kids came, I was having wine every night and I had to be an adult in rain that in. That's just not gonNA. Work for me I've been in that boat. I mean I couple of years ago started to develop a problem with alcohol and luckily great adult friends kind of intervened and you know helped me see that where I was able to take care of it early, I'd say that would be a tough thing I mean being an. Adult is dealing with your adult friends when they have adult problem. That's one thing I haven't enjoyed well, and then as an adult to it says here, you have to be okay knowing that there might be nothing that you can do to help them because they have to help themselves because they are adults I was talking to my therapist about something similar to this and how I felt like if I were to abandon a certain situation similar to this in a way that I would feel. Responsible if they went and drank again or did something and she said, that's not your responsibility that is on that person. So you don't need to carry that weight not. Okay. Well, I still do and then it ended the little article about being a real grownup is accepting that sometimes your parents really were right about things. Oh, luckily, they don't listen to this. They're not up to speed on podcast, but I would have to admit they were right on a lot of things that I don't want. My Mom, you know what my mom is right about and since she's passed away, she's not even here to see it through. But how I treated my mom's so poorly, I was awful to her my hormones were crazy and I i. mean as I developed into a teenager and she just told me you just wait I can't wait for you to have a daughter on day and I mean Sta Sheeran I we get along great but there's Times where there's that friction and I just think this is payback for my mom she was so right but I would tell her no way. I'm not ever going to be like you'RE GONNA? Be? Cool. My daughter's not gonNA, ever and I'm like, no, my mom was right. I mean I'm almost exactly like my mom. And that's just a natural progression of growing up part of everything. So anyway, just grown up things just know that that stuff is definitely hard this stuff I listed off, but I would love to hear from y'all what things are hard for you. When it comes to adulting, you can hit me up on instagram at radio amy and then chases instagram is what is your your underscore? What is it? Again True Flock Underscore Yeah L. O. C. K. E. underscore though we're all adults here but I actually I do have I get emails from twelve year olds and sixty something year olds I think the oldest person I received an email from is sixty one. So holler at me if you're older than sixty would love to hear from you and then the youngest person I received an email from his twelve. Hit me up for things with Amy Brown at g mail dot. com. With amy back. To have a labrador named Kara who has been in our family for about two years now and she just made it to the I love. You level like I love her now she is awesome. But for a long time she was in that I, like you Kinda category we were all just kind of annoyed with her but now we all love her and I think what took so long because Josie was so awesome she was our rottweiler that we had for ten plus years she got cancer passed away shortly after our kids got here from Haiti so it was just a very Heavy time the kids sort of just starting to bond with her and then I was like Oh Josie died sorry about that and then a few months later they started saying we want to get another dog and so then my friend Cathy who runs a dog rescue at Kelly's dog rescue on instagram. If you ever want to check her out, she got a call about this labrador that had been tied up for a year and she called me and said Hey I know that you and your kids want a dog I know you would prefer it not shed I. got you a Labrador. I thought. Okay. Well, we'll foster it soon we fostered it the first night we were fostering at chase it her at the time it was it to me because I didn't love her she almost died she we. S We went to sleep and we woke up and went out into the living room and she was laying there in a puddle of blood and we had no idea what happened basically lifeless. The kids are upstairs asleep this is their first new puppy. Again, we're still trial run fostering it out but ultimately we're thinking we're going to keep this dog. They had already lost Josie months before. So we're like, don't let. The kids come downstairs. We've got to clean up the blood bins picking up Kara will she wasn't even named car at the time I. don't even know that she had a name but her heads hanging he puts her in the car takes her to the emergency dog place because it's a Sunday and we're what's even open and they said if we had come in maybe even an hour later, she wouldn't have made it. Then, she spent a week in doggy pricey you or something they brought her back to life and I thought, okay. What in the world is a signs we not have this dog or is it a sign that we saved her life? Because honestly we were able to tend to her very quickly which when she was out at Kathy's Kathy has this barn it's a really nice farm. She's got other dogs out there and They were kind of living outside in this barn cage things. So I don't know that they would have noticed it right away. So then I ultimately decided okay. This is a blessing stocks gifts and she survived. So clearly, this is a sign she's supposed to be ours. So we officially adopted her she became our dog and then yeah, we just Kinda liked her to say the last I, don't know earlier in the pandemic. Like maybe March April timeframe she made it over to the I. Love You side and now I love her I can't get enough of her I. Just I will be crushed. If anything happens to her, she is Josie status but I just saw this study about how dogs can actually recognize I love you, and then it told me how dogs say it back. So if I have any other dog lovers listen up. So the study was done by canine cottages and it followed four dogs for a week while tracking their heart rates and when the owners told their dogs that they loved them dogs heart rates increased on average forty, six percent isn't that awesome and then? The study also found that dog's heart rates decreased by twenty three percent on average when they cuddled with their owners. Now, Josie was not cutler but Kara Kara cuddles and now I'm going to be listening to see for heart rate slows down because she feels comfortable with me and then a veterinarian Dr Heather Venkat she said that if a dog does these actions, it's how the dog is saying I love you back a dog curling up next to its owner wagging they're tail when being greeted bringing a toy to the owner which signals trust showing their pet parent their tummy, and then when in pain they go to their owner boom that's your dog saying I love you. That's awesome. I know that chase has a sad dog story and he didn't WanNA bring y'all down by telling it. But do you think you'll get another dog anytime? You're for sure I think right now figuring out where land on the other end of twenty twenty just probably the first step they. Yeah I definitely want another dog. I just need to make sure I have a place for a big dog I like I, like big dogs I agree I been does not win a little dog I could probably handle A. Labrador. Is full-sized that they make those cute little tiny they make. Somewhere, people make these tiny mini golden doodle things. So cute me that Mary has one but she's living with her parents during coronavirus but her name's Hana and she's so cute. But I follow a couple of doodle accounts on instagram and they are precious which speaking of instagram. If y'all live in Nashville, I want you to check out wags and walks Nashville if you're looking to adopt a rescue or foster again, the instagram wags and walks Nashville and our dog mom stuff that we have up through the shot Ford supports them. Also we've been supporting actually I don't know if we've updated that but either way the dog mom is supporting. Great causes but also we worked with proverbs twelve, ten animal rescue, and so those who places in Nashville I know are great to work with if you're interested in not and then if you live in, Austin, we've worked with Austin pets alive a lot. So those are the references I can make but I guess just if wherever you live, you could google different places you could adopt foster to see if you want to help out because again member that's one of the things from two, thousand twenty that's not all that bad is people are home more and they can foster and adopt. Well that wraps up all four things for today chase. Thanks for joining me for all of them. To, be with you today so fun and then big. Thank you to. That's been loving.

So this time on the home edition of the show we've got an exceptionally personal and fascinating interview with Joe, about her exceptionally personal and truly raw album good to know.

You know there's a track on good to know called pedialyte. That has one of my favorite lyrics in recent memory, which is good afternoon feeling bad. Still I need a prayer and an advil. And of course, that's Really about recovering after a night out. But during lockdown a lot of pretty sober afternoons felt exactly that way. And we started the home edition of inside the studio. The let you know how the pandemic has impacted the lives of artists in how it's affecting the way they make music Joe. Joe Who released an Acoustic version of good to know in July that was recorded entirely during lockdown really gets into all of this with our quarantine correspondent Jordan rent. So if you enjoy this episode, be sure to check out the iheartradio podcast that Jordan host it's called rivals music's greatest feuds, and it is available wherever you get your podcasts. Over. Jordan runtaugh. But enough about me, my guest today has one of the biggest baddest voices on the planet. She always did even when she was just a teenager hit I hit at age thirteen with two thousand, four's leave get out making her the youngest person at that point to score a number one, her highly publicized battle with the record label kept her out. Of the spotlight for far too long. But now she's back with a new album. Good to know the soulful sensual collection is her most personal work today detailing her journey from self-medication to self. Love the music is born out of her own trials tribulations and I think, I've read trips to strip clubs the recording studio I believe I'm so thrilled to welcome Gioja. Taking the time. And so happy to be with you, Jordan. Oh my gosh. So so many questions but I gotta say the first time I listened to your new record I ever streaming version I hit play and the first words I heard you sing on so bad we're look at me now I just thought hell yeah I mean you could say that again it's an album with three acts three chapters can you walk me through each one how you structured it Yeah and it was definitely intentional that that first lyric that that kind of opened up the album because. When I came into this process of putting the album together, starting writing for it I was. Re deeply uncomfortable with myself wanting to get out of my own skin and billing a lot of shame building a lot of. Guilt. Regret about a the way I handle things in my like relationship life into feeling. Like I was a bad. A bad girl and I was just again ashamed. So I kinda chronicle the ways in which I. Manifest in bat feeling, which is like you know kind of. Drinking too much going out just not. Not John Myself that the most love and then. Also like busying myself with with just different distractions, pretty much wanting to get distracted myself. But the middle of the album find me realizing that I've never really been alone never truly been single and I. Need that that time and really important as uncomfortable as it may be that it's a necessary experience and then at the end. Kind of. Realizing that I might make this journey more than once make the same rotation more than once. But I'm more than capable matter of fact, I love myself I'm I'm strong resilient and and just feeling empowered toward the end of it. So this journey you go through the album, you're going through that in real time as you were writing these like when you started with with bad habits and things like that, you really felt that way in that moment when you're writing only because I I just wanted to Stay busy. So I wouldn't have to really think about what I was feeling. You know sometimes we run from our feelings by. Whatever, it may be just more more more more stimulation and what's been so interesting about this endemic that we're all living through is that there's no opportunity for. Distraction. You know really we are forced to take a look in inside and. At what's around us we just can't look away twenty twenty has made our vision so clear and it's just interesting that I would. I was kind of already on a journey in word and just taking a lot of accountability within myself. That you said you said you were looking at yourself reckoning, needed to happen what prompted that reckoning in your life honestly i. Cheated on my best friends like we were in a relationship and I. I use a lot of the same like coping mechanisms of distraction attention and all these things and I just. I really messed up. and. It was like a catastrophic. Personal change in my life when this person totally cut me off. There was no talking about it. I was just like, wow I can't just be out here doing whatever reckless with. My heart and other people's and I I was just like I have to grow up. To really look. And be like what kind of person do you want to be like I know I'm a great friend know I can be reliable but like what type of woman do you really want to be one of my favorite tracks on the album I think relationships think about you is such a raw song, my favorite track on the album. What does that song mean to you? Where did that come from that came from that? The end of that relationship that I was. Mentioning. And it is super raw and like very almost. Desperately vulnerable, and that's it was kind of like a journal excerpts and that was my first time working with my producer Lido and I had been a big fan of what I've heard him do with Harvey and with his own material and he's just. I think he's a genius and we connected instantly because I dislike had these. metaphorical like open wounds Because I was just like how am I ever GonNa move on like I I keep beating myself up about this. I was still very much in that shame spiral and And I hadn't forgiven myself even forgive me to the other person on the other side of that relationship. Oh and I listened to small things which sort of is a follow on from that to about all the little things that remind you of this other person that song is incredible. Just so relatable we've all been there like you can't even sit up straight because you're thinking this other person. Oh it's so visceral and sometimes it's just What I love about music in general is that everybody will listen to one song and like. Relate their own life to it. So it might not be romantic relationship, but it might be just that you're not over something and you're acting like everything is okay. You know maybe you had. Some type of experience that shook you or changed you and you're. Just trying to move on from it, but maybe you haven't fully dealt with it and that can be sometimes something can trigger you out of nowhere just make you realize Whoa, this is still very much president in my in my body and my. In my heart. You move through it and the first single from the album man I love especially I loved it the title because it's not really about. Another man at all about you. Yeah. Exactly, it's me taking a moment and feeling like, okay yo I'm. Li- I. Really Dig Myself Right now I have. I'm in process I'm certainly not perfect but I do recognize. Everything that I bring to my own table and I it's more than enough and I'm saying I'm really enjoying this time with myself. So if I'm going to break out of this very delicious self partnership that I have gone on, it's going to really take somebody incredibly special strong powerful to to move me. I really enjoy stretching out and having my bed right now. So I was listening to the album and I was trying to figure out and maybe it's both is this album more about moving beyond bad habits at or is it about accepting yourself laws and all or is it both I think it's both. Because for people with addictive personalities or people that can just have this tendency to want more or get really obsessed over things. This is probably a lifelong struggle like whether it's but I think we find healthier ways focusing that attention and. So. Am I going to be like? Have I removed all bad habits from my life, hell? No like I'm still. I still be messing up all the time but I just don't. I think this is just about getting better. It's a beautiful way to put it. I was thinking just having career and entertainment has got to be so tough because I feel like that more than almost any other career I can think of you guys so much yourself worth from external sources in. Fans or critics or label executives has to be really tough to deal with how do you combat something like that I don't know I I think you just have to. Think about yourself as. Multifaceted and build up those other facets of yourself, and that was something that I had to grow through as well and it was like really uncomfortable because when you get the messaging that your self worth is predicated on. It. It's crazy. My first single went number one, the number one pop record when I was thirteen and you can't get any higher than that. So it's it's interesting to kind of adjust. Okay. So what is success? What is happiness? What is sustainable like? Who Are you? When nobody's looking? WHAT ARE PEOPLE GONNA stay? At. Your intimate birthday dinner what are they going to stay at your funeral like I just started thinking about all these things like because we are more than. Numbers and Statistics, and we're people were I dunno took me. So many self help books and therapy and all this stuff. Really believe that I think interview where you said you're more spiritual this point in your life than you ever thought you'd be like, how did you get to that place? So many people don't somebody building at close. Why grew up? Catholic. So I love like. Rituals and tradition. I think that's really beautiful but I. Had that background of like. Knowing a higher power and. I think just through yoga meditation. I've found that these things really really helped me and the books that I was reading that the podcast listening to the Youtube clips or whatever it was just. Really. Expanding, my mind to realize that not only is there not only I like feeling this and it's something I can't describe, but there is science behind it So I think that linking your Brek to movement, and I just I think I appreciate the little things more and I find God and all those I try to be in the moment and it just feels better I wanted to ask you about the year album cover. I don't think I've ever asked us but the colors on the album cover orange has a great deal of significance to you with with a shockers I believe. Oh God I am no shocker expert by any means, but I am very interested in energetic centers of the body and I was absent while I was writing this album and I really wanted to like hone in on my my sensuality, my sexuality and creativity, and that apparently comes from the same energy center and it's represented by the Color Orange and that also represents. You know rebirth regeneration and creativity, and just really feeling the color orange his I love seed in sunset and sunrise is it. Makes me very happy. My step mom's or Rakia master. So I really wanted to ask you about that was fascinated. By a lot of shocker talker, these parts and. So you you you drop your album to know in May and then in mid-july, you drop an acoustic version. How did that come about was that all recorded in lockdown or those early demos or the acoustic wise recorded in lockdown, but the album was all done for that. So we stuck to the plan of releasing it. You know in in March and that's came out right now six months. Government. No The the the so good to know came out right in the beginning of of lockdown and then and then the kristen later. But. I didn't want to. It was really important to me that I could stay consistent for my fans like i. told him. It was coming out at this time I wanted to put it on this time I. There's been so much that I can't control within my career at that I just I, felt like. All hunkered down and I could use some music right now but then the acoustic came and I just felt like. The song this can stand alone like stripped with the vocal and one instruments I wanted to. And this Monday to express it in a different way especially, since I can't go on tour right now ain't nobody. Can you mentioned the good to know was? So much about your own relationship with yourself and getting to know yourself and and be alone with yourself. In quarantine happened. How what have you learned about yourself in this period when I learned I'm much more nurturing than I. Thought I was like I really love. Making food for people and like. Take like. Keeping my home a certain way or like dropping cookies off the people I'm like, I don't know when I I like that brings me so much joy I realized I guess that I'm creed in other ways and that being bored actually may good for us like we don't need to be constantly stimulated only be on social media constantly I'm I still need to learn that because I do spend too much time distill scrolling. But there's there's nothing to be afraid of in my own company is not level learn. And you're in California with your mom whether you both like the do together. Yes. It's been really cool I. Try out new recipes on her super passionate about being cooking and baking and We Walk my dog, her name is. Today's episode is sponsored by the New Mazda. C X. Thirty. So lately, we've been trying to do our part to be cautious and do what we can for public health. So we've been even cooped up in the house a lot not a getting out a lot Robert is there anything you Kinda miss about the about the road trip or going on long drives? Well, I do have to say there's there is something really cool about having a long drive hopefully, you know like driving through the mountains or something and you get to really dive into a particular album just really experience it beginning to end while taking in the scenery also a great time for the children to learn about metal machine. Music. So when miles gray and I drove the Mazda C X thirty from Palm Desert to San Diego I really enjoyed the scenery along the way and I feel like the car itself helped a lot with that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call an essential EST approach. So while it's got a lot of features like in Car Wifi you know vehicle status navigation displays, etc. It really doesn't feel crammed with distracting lights in visual decoy and speaking of features. Six thirty also has a really good factory soundsystem they loaded the car up with some high definition sample tracks. For us to try like we listen to Daft punk and that sounded great.

RV. And we met the premier and she's like. My First La Friends in kind of taught me how to show me La pretty much. So we've been friends for what feels like forever. and. I love her I. She's she's A. Great creative all around and she and directed a music video for me on. Ny like a previous project cone saved my soul in. Because I know her so well, and I know how stringent she was being about Kobe I felt like. I could feel confident and going over to her house and we literally shot at just meet her and one other person and we did everything outside use natural sunlight. It's just really amazing what you can do with. Very very little and just a desire looked incredible. Seen them and I had no idea I assume you made them like months and months in advance before all this went down and then I realized the backstory was just like three of you. It's incredible. It's Amazing. I it feels nice to. Find ways around. Things that. Are a little bit challenging. So I mean, I'm very challenging are very challenging yet. Have you been writing a lot of music during this time I've been reading some Christmas songs actually known. To. Be You know writing? I see COSIES, fireplace songs, minutes like blazing. Christmas in July action exactly So been been doing that and it's been a been writing more poetry than full form songs and that's a nice because I do that a lot as a kid and. It's just a good exercise. and kind of like a good. Brain purge do consider yourself a homebody like do you get more inspiration looking inward or looking outward? I. Can find inspiration almost anywhere like I would answer I do like to be around people though I like to be in I, love traveling I I love being on the road I miss that but. I'm also not going to make an excuse as if I can't be inspired unless I'm you know in another place on trying to. Find the vibes unloved your special corentin version of leave. Get out chill stay in. Thing. That was inspired by I was doing a livestream and one of my fans like wrote in the comments it was like stay in right now song to the. Tune of leave get out and I'm like Oh that's so smart like yeah there's something there. So I just went ahead and wrote the rest of it and It just feels good to you know. Laugh I'm glad some people got a smile out of it. I feel like your fans are more fiercely loyal than most because everything you've been through. Their incredible like What's it like staying connected to them throughout all of this Corentin Lockdown It's been I mean frigging. Awesome. It's like how we've stayed connected through. Everything we a lot of us have grown up together and we're going through a lot of. The same things in our respective places where we live and just trying to figure out life I've been listening to watching some of the covers you've been posting a social media Deangelis Ot l., C. I think one time he just saying the word hello and it's still made my job drop. Begs the question what are you doing to keep your voice that strong? It's amazing. Warm ups every day doing like zoom sessions with vocal coach. Thank you so much. I have gang back to basics and kind of like doing scales at the piano but a warm up every day before I record I do some. Hogan. If you will but I've also just been going back and listening to some of my favorite singers and. Trying to impersonate that that's how I started when I was really I tried I tried to sound like the Franklin or Whitney Houston Mariah Carey, and now I'm finding that same passion for like for recreating southbound. I sold a couple months back you spoke on a panel for the Grammy Museum about any Wine House one of my all time favorite artists what does she mean to a chance to meet her perform her? I never got a chance to meet her and. I remember when I discovered her first album. Frank. It was after back in black had already come out and I think it was after she passed away and I was the same age that she was when she. wrote it and put it out and I was just like Neil this girl is. Killing me softly with her word. He is drumming my pain right now like I just feel that she was saying And she just had a way of. she was so vivid with her storytelling and so raw and. I just. A loved everything about giving. She was with artistry just so. Bringing. Unfair. What fame can do to a? You Know A. A sensitive soul but is just pure in. Yeah but but her music continues to just blow my mind and it's something that can continue unraveled like you know when you arrive when you go back to it and listen to different years in your life, there's still so much to take from it. I think I haven't thought about that with Franken good to know I see them as very similarly some of her songs like I've heard love is blinds or or take the box. The lyrics are so funny. They're so brutal and bruising at points but you just want to feel like you know where you want to give a hug it's it's incredible. That's such a good point. I mean she's A type of greater that I look up to she. So inspirational and aspirational and I think she kind of continues. In a line of. Female Writers Joni Mitchell who were never concerned about looking. Like the perfect woman whatever that. is thought to be, but like meaning they were. They mess up bear. Horny they're. Hungry or more they're dissatisfied. They're irrational. They're all these things that we can be while we are also worthy. you know what I mean so I just loved. And loved that all of those things existed within the her writing the lightning bolt moment for you. When you knew the, you didn't want to be a musical appreciator you wanted to be somebody who made it yourself I don't know if there's a lightning moment but I just remember being in the living room and watching my favorite divas on the TV on like vh one divas live or something like. Like I want that like I want to have big hair and I wanNA wear a little dress than I want to say. and it was you know Mariah and Whitney and Sali's. Tina Turner Chaka Khan. Donna summer this all these incredible. Singers and I've been singing professionally since I was six. That's when I started I think I got my first check from did like musical theater or something so it's hard to think back and remember specific lightning moment but. Shoot once once I was struck would just like you know you can't get away from this. I just love this. Forgot to ask you memorabilia. Fine in what was that like? That was so special for me and it really. Just, her actions and how giving and generous she was with me and the people around her. It taught me. About, S- How you can be larger than life in legendary but be so grounded in down to Earth and the way she made me feel was she was so present with me. She was so so kind and I want to give you know. Young artists, younger artists look up to me that same feeling that she gave me because she made me she encouraged me even just with. For actions and what she had to say and I just I really appreciate her.

Have, you ever had that dream where you're trying to take your business organization remote and it's super confusing. So you just decide to listen to a relaxing podcast instead. But then when you're listening to that podcast here, vodka for their team or remote experts who can solve all your communication problems. You know that we're dream where you talk to an expert at Vaughn age once and they just magically put a plan together. So your entire work can easily work from anywhere and then on top of providing their simple cloud solutions, unified communications and contact centers with full salesforce integration even sort you out with a video API that you can use to build video into your apps and websites to your customers can easily see you. Have you ever had that dream. It's so weird but as crazy as it sounds now, that's an actual real thing you can do. It's not a dream. You don't need to get into rem sleep to make your business communication dreams come. True. All you need to do is call Vanek now we're talking. According to younger artists at their sensitive souls who are you know really dying to get in the music industry? What is your advice for them? Well, I I would want them to get clear on why they want to be in the music industry like the music industry is gross like you know what I mean but music is music is awesome. But the industry is whack so you have to like. Are. You want it for fame because if you do that is not sustainable, you have to really really have. A thick skin and an unwavering. Belief in yourself, it can waiver but you have to have a resilience and I understand that feeling when it's like, okay. If I don't do this I'll never forgive myself for. I'll never starve stop questioning when I, what could have been had I not just chosen a quote unquote more. Guaranteed thing nothing in life is guaranteed. So if you love music, you can create a path for yourself. There is there's no one way to be successful You don't need to sign to a major label you can do it yourself. There are so many. Different avenues in which you can build something really substantial and lucrative and I would just. Encourage people to hone in on what it is that makes them special unique and be as much of yourself as you can because that's what other human beings are going to connect to like that resonates in a way that we can't even describe sometimes Bernadette Peters quote if you like everybody else what are they need you for something like? I, love that. was there ever a time when you were going through all the stuff going through to get into it but? You ever thought you know what? The hell with it. This isn't worth going to go do something else or did you never was I never even an option for you always knew that this was it this is what you were going to do. It's not that it wasn't worth it for me. It's that there was a time where I thought that. I would not be able to ever put on music again because of the contract was under I, didn't own my voice. So I felt like, okay realistically you know when we start thinking realistically where like okay. Well, maybe a hat and figure out something for my life because what am I gonNa do stay frozen like no I can't have to do something. So I was like, okay, maybe I'll go to. Call into. It sounds like a great idea get a degree and then maybe I'll become a teacher or maybe you know like maybe L. Get deeper into songwriting and I'll write songs for other artists in both would be totally cool thing to do I could have combined my passions for. travel and culture and done something that and. I would have made away but again, I would have always wondered like. Who would I have been if I continued to develop as an artist and I'm glad that I had people around me who didn't let me Believe that my. Dreams were over. And this year you want a grammy with Peach Morton for say so that must've been pretty damn validating. That's incredible. Congratulations. Thank You I. Am so thankful to PJ and love how things worked out it's. Very validating moment because I followed my heart with this month there was not like any industry masterminding going on it with like you know what? Let's take this artists and this artist game on a smash track together. It was just like I love PJ. There's we have this mutual respect and he sent me a song I. Loved it and people really loved the two. So that felt really nice to be like. You can just do what feels right. And it can work. Congratulations what is next for you? You've got this Christmas project coming up what else he worked on that you really excited about and proud of and the deluxe version of good to know and. A couple amazing. Features that really hyper pout and I have a video coming for the single off of the deluxe and So. The Standard version of the album was only nine songs in some fans like what the hell is this nine Thong now it's like a complete. This is a full. Bam, and a, I'm just super hype about these songs like they're. They're so good so that coming. and. I'M GONNA start. Putting things together for might my next project like I'm just even putting together a vision board and? Like some some things, some goals that I want to region start putting together my dream, team of collaborators. Can you talk a little bit more about who you want to work with or is still so you don't WanNa you don't WanNA speak it. It's like superstitious. I kind of do feel a little bit superstitious monarch, get in the room with these people and and really camp out and just see what we. Do I know you have a birthday coming up in December a milestone one I had the same wasn't myself? To December's ago. Yes. Some of December also It's always a good time for reflection. I was wondering what did the twelve year old who wrote keep on keeping on think they'd be doing it thirty. Wow At thirty when I was twelve. I probably thought that I would be God I don't know thirty sounded so distant and old you know what I mean and now that I'm here I'm like Yo I'm such a baby. So, I probably thought that I would be like beyond, say whatever that means. And And that I think I thought I would have been like the head of a label or something which I actually i. Label clover and So. I think the only difference that I thought I'd be married with children. And I'm not beyond saying but I never will. Joe. Joe. It pretty dope actually pretty damn awesome. I. Don't know if you're married or have kids but just now it feels like something that wow I can't believe that I thought that maybe they're already thirty old when I was twenty five now I'm thirty two right like oh Now I feel. Better than ever. So I hope that I just continue to feel this way like if lo is any example of how you can thrive like just even. In, any decade to shield the prototype so Listen. The twelve year. Old Joke. Keep on keeping on. Exactly. My last question I've been asking everybody. This is my last question. What's the first thing you want to do in this pandemic Zobeir if you could snap your fingers everything back to normal right now what would you do of people have trips you WanNa take people you want to hug restaurants WanNa go to what is it for you?

And you're next up might be in ireland at county cork keep going up the west coast of ireland and you might find yourself on the same ferry that several mccormack took on a recent visit to the weather worn. Aaron islands corona catheter. Lucky on new york where we have a one and only supermarket post office bank. That's about it and the island is nine miles by three miles and the population is two thousand people and summertime right down to eight hundred. I'm on a tour bus. On the island of inishmore the largest aaron islands. These are three rocky islands off. Ireland's rough west coast. It's just an hour-long ferry ride to the bustling city of galway. But it's a world away. Financial district blinking. You misset bank. Harare land only open one day. We wonder time depends on the weather. Open my guide for the day. Is diana a young mother who grew up here. She's a short compact woman with long dark. Hair a no nonsense demeanor. And she's funny. Three popes and we have three churches a lot of spirits. Going on outside the tiny town we drive through a rough and beautifully desolate. Landscape treeless greenfield's dotted with sheep and crisscrossed with crumbly stonewalls in every direction ocean waves crash on the rocky shoreline in the middle ages. This was home to some of ireland's most famous saints who lived here in isolated monastic communities. When all of cromwell conquered ireland in the seventeenth century. Some very tough. Catholics fled to this harsh place and managed to scrape out a life. The men fish in the atlantic and small wooden boats called couric's there was no farmland so they manufacture their own soil by mixing seaweed limestone sand and they lived in almost complete isolation from the mainland up to the late twentieth century. Many older people here couldn't speak a word of english. Irish gaelic is still the official language of government and education. Electricity and plumbing didn't arrive here until the nineteen seventies resolved. Briefly stopping here at some traditional attached cottages drive past the foundations of a building. The crumbled remains of the walls. Show the layout of a home so if you can visualize with the patch near living area. The huge fireplace a few decades ago tourism started bringing some money to the island since then. The islanders have abandoned these quaint cottages with their whitewashed stone. Walls that truths and adorable red doors. Diana said it was impossible to keep the damp out of them. Either all the same plan. All these cottages basically two rooms one for the living area and also one for sleeping there could be tin. It could be seventeen your family. You still want in the same room huge fireplace and a hole in the ground as a toilet. Outhouse you like that i did. How many brothers and sisters. There was a five. Including my mom might add. A my grandfather did know any difference. That wasn't brought opened a mansion because everybody else around me was also in attached cottage. Diana seems awfully young for her childhood to be a tourist attraction like most of the island's residents she now lives in a more modern and comfortable concrete home until the tourists came. Every man on the island had the same job catching fish. There isn't a family that hasn't been affected. Some way or another by droning would pank witness. The younger generation are focusing towards education. Because before the boys Would leave at fifteen would go fishing and majority wouldn't even reach eighteen in the nineteen thirties. American filmmaker robert flaherty visited here and was intrigued by the dramatic landscapes and the harsh life of the people. He made a documentary about life on the island which brought inishmore to the world's attention. Islanders perform their own lies for the camera. They show the movie daily in town for tourists. A mother and her young son stand atop a high cliff looking intently out to see the ocean. Pummeling the rocks below out in the surf tossed like a miniature toy boat. Three men pull on oars that looked like toothpicks. the woman's screams to her husband helplessly beckoning him into shore saved. Apparently the movie was staged but those ocean waves are very real father a grandfather fishermen. Yeah yeah and my great grandfather diets droned. He was coming in there. For big diana drops us off at the island's biggest attraction don angus one of ireland's oldest archaeological sites. It's an iron age fort with concentric walls thirteen feet thick and ten feet high. It's a thirty minute. Climb a rocky path to the fort which is perched at the top of a sheer cliff overlooking the ocean you can barely hear the waves crashing on the rocks three hundred feet below and there's no fence to keep you safe. Tourists like me crawl out to the edge on hands and knees to line or stomachs and peer down at the expanse of ocean below. It's an edge of the world kind of place at the visitor center below the four. There's a woman shop selling the traditional sweaters. The island is famous for young woman. Who might be in her sixties. Seventies is trying to help a german woman. Find the right hat now. you don't wear it like that. She tells me that all the sweaters are handmade by island. Women who all know how to knit. I made the mistake of asking if any of the island men that god forbid if any of my older generation seen man with fair knitting needles have wouldn't have committee needed devon shovel stephanie. Back on the bus. Diana seems more open to the changes here. We have a mixed every nationality no on the island which is great. Because you don't have to marry your second cousin anymore. They had no choice. We under tour in a pub for some delicious salmon chowder and a pint of stout. An elderly man at the bar tries without much luck to teach me how to complain about. The bad weather in irish gaelic says that woods. Tom should in the war. I'm should say if he is fisherman. I fish not from the island of inishmore ten miles off the coast of ireland's county. Galway this is sarah mccormack for travel. With rick steves. We'll share a toast to the singing culture of the irish from north to south. That's up next on travel. With rick steves. No matter where you travel in ireland. you'll find music and important part of the scene. The deeper immerse yourself in the musical culture of the irish the more you'll learn about irish history and legends. Even while you're having a rousing good time help us tap into the singing culture of the irish we've imported to best spokesman. I can think of to demonstrate how the irish can make lyric and the tune an important part of their identity. Liam oriented tenor. Who comes from a musical family and specializes in traditional ballots of ireland. You can often find liam singing. The pugs and county cork is part of a duo. Called trad routes and stephen phillies a tour guide. Who runs a youth. Hostel in derry in morgan iro stephen liam thanks for joining us here. Liam why is music such a big deal in ireland as opposed to almost any other country i can think about. I think for what it's or history was passed on other two songs passed on oral tradition musician music. That was kept history life for so long because we were suppressed for so many years and we kept a musically by putting it into solve see hasn't under tradition you couldn't print Honest irish oriented material under centuries of british rule. Exactly but you can sure sing around the kitchen table. And the fact that we were able to sing our own tones will in other words the british diplomatic. Yeah so a lot of these routes are in gaelic rather than english of the songs who've been translated to english by people because unfortunately you're language is doing okay now so the culture carries on an english has a roots in gaelic. Yes you know if i was at a campfire with a bunch of friends and we had a guitar player and we could sing songs. They could probably seeing fifteen or twenty songs maybe thirty. How many songs do you think you could sing around the campfire. I would search for week. Take take how many i would say. Maybe maybe a thousand. Maybe you were. You were interviewed by some german journalist. There was there was a german girl. Actually she came through with thesis. Her cottage teases irish music. And she attended my gigs for a number of weeks and before she left. She showed me an idea believe that she showed me eight hundred different songs that i saw eight hundred that that you had some you know. Some people can memorize the koran or some people can do this or that which is astounding amount of memory and you were raised in a musical family is just protest and your father was a singer. He's still sings my forestville things. In my opinion he's one of the best choices i've ever heard but maybe a little boys but but it must have been spared you of course of course and i went to hear him sing in different venues from her young age and my dad was a piano player and when i was a little kid my my goal was to learn his favorite song and the piano right. What was your dad's favorite. Fantasy does for happens to be at the moment. One of my favorite songs. It's an old song from patrick. Cavallo spoke dublin. Eglin road ohio. Oh i am you are we either smear off. So oh the day. All round past la. Ooh were and i let you go hum now. Why would that be your dad's favorite song. It's it's a song about a lady from dingle arjun. Cavanaugh was watching from the window on any saw. This lady walked on stony better. I think Recognizer beauty and felon over the beauty of the wrote. The song steven meisel have a friend who has a music store in bingol and he actually gave you the lady's name last time we spoke but i forgot it. Imagine now that is amazing. So your dad's favorite song is about. You know exactly what street it was about and actually what woman it's about that knows. Probably a thousand suns. Also let's more. i'm rick steves traveled receives. We're talking about average traditional folk music. I'm joined by liam overburden From county cork and stephen philomene from the north of ireland. Stephen when you travel around ireland and your tour guide. You travel around ireland a lot. Almost any town you come into has a song about it. Every river has a song about it. What's that like traveling around your country and all these places up favorite songs that's brilliant. You know when. I first discovered liam seven muslim ten years ago. He's a kirkman and the man. And when i got to listen to him sing the kark songs. I just love it. I mean these goosebumps. And you know what i saying. The car song they sound. okay. I mean i could never have the same passion for a car song that liam would have. What is it about a cork song sung by corkman. Man that gives you goosebumps this the passion for the region. You know we all have songs about ireland that we love but isn't a great that within ireland is thirty two counties so there's thirty two little nations within a nation and i just think that's bridget you'd be able to keep that reasonable identity strong and at the same time when liam comes up to visit me in dairy because we've become very good friends and he comes up to visit me in the north and i'll sing dairy songs and you know he listens to austin. Gary songs are donegal songs and he just see that he loves and has respect for singing our songs and i bring him into my local pub in the middle of dairy into patio. Donald traditional barn in. it's like bringing Britney spears in or something superstar has a right from a from a different corner of your eyes from the the deep great musician. From cork in ulster. Come on down to this. Pub denies bringing his songs from the south. We know all the words of all these songs you know we all the words of the karak songs and he knows all the words of the northern songs right for us to have a real live corkman come up to the north and saying britain done right a cork song done the right thing at the exact don with the accident and knowing that those words means something to him because he grew up there okay so let's liam just came to your town your favorite pub opposite side of the island in the far north. And here's liam there. He's a corkman. You love cork music. But you're tired of hearing it by ulsterman s come to sing one of your favorite songs and see if he can do right off the top of his head. You see the smiler exactly. He knows exactly the song. I'm going to ask him to sing. Because area and kark city called fair hill and liam's from that area and it's a. It's a good old st biology by young boys growing up in kark and so it's called the boys of fair hill and he's sick and tired probably request to sing this. What i'll ask him for that. One chicago accent is very distinctive. This yeah you know they also say that you'd never have to ask a corkman where he comes from 'cause he'll tell you. I very proud very proud. Give the ball. So here's this song come mumbai on. You'll see latvian. Lessees fully famous for all they will make your heart thrill the boys they will not hire him you the guarantee they won't charm you. Here's a kamal set. The buys of fair hill. If you come to cork he'll get a sheen. Murphy stowed and peaks groupings. They must for all they will make your heart thrill those cross from over the phone just to kissed the blarney stone that can be viewed from the grooves of fair hill an in cork city. There is no longer next lord. Mayor is andy. Here's a kamal set as fair hill and blair girls a very rude. They go swimming in the nude. Here's a kamal. Said the buys of fair hill. Just on for fifteen minutes. We'll leave it at that. That is a delight to have within your culture all those fine points that the average tourist would be oblivious to just within ireland it. Just i can see it just turns you both on but there's a connection there you see. I've brought probably a hundred groups that over the years to listen to liam daish carbon conceal were when he's playing and when are group's are visitors here liam sing a song and they know what to song from the south because he's introduced it as a car song and suddenly they know me as their tour guide from the north and i joined in the chorus and the barman from somewhere else joins in the chorus. And we all just the whole bar erupts in the course. There's something very attractive. Not and i can almost magic. Well i've had that magic and search for it as a tourist. Because i'm pretty clueless about all the fine points of irish music but i know when you get that magic. I don't care if you're Carry are corkman are from ulster. Or if you're from seattle or florida or whatever if you're there you feel that magic. There's there's something combusting that i just and i don't feel it every time i mean you got you got looking for it and it's like fishing sometimes. You really come through. Sometimes you will find it. Slow as you want. It's always saint patrick's day when the irish or with this. I'm gonna travel with rick steves. Stephen mcphillips was raised in derry northern ireland and he now operates the mill town guesthouse in dingle and a hotel at low burden in the swiss alps or reirden's from a musical family in county cork and his cds include sticking out a mile from blarney. There's another song called. Johnny jump up. Which was johnny jump. Pope was later. That was brewed whisky. Casks in cork right and it was awful on steve. Actually he teaches the song to the people on the tour. This is danni goldman teaching a car song to a bunch of tourists from america. I'm wendy get to the pope. It's the first thing they asked me to sing. And i pretend. I don't know and you know but then it's so much fun. I just think the chorus all never never never again. If i leave to one hundred one hundred and ten for into the ground. And i couldn't get up out to drink in core of that johnny jump up we've got my background. You know the songs is that. I grew up on a host where it wasn't very musical so i didn't have the blessing that liam had my parents. Don't play any instruments and didn't really listen to the songs much put. When i was growing up i found an lp. Find an industrial collection of stuff. Up dusted a diner. And it said twenty. Best irish rebel songs and patriotic and it was opening pandora's box and it was like something that my mother said to me on all. We shouldn't shouldn't be listening to those patriotic song because we lived up in the north. Where there was you know violence on the fringes and all these jurors feelings. I remember listening to it with the earphones on and it was just like a rebirth for me. I was probably about twelve. And i just said to myself. This is the future. So i sat down and learn practically every irish rebel song that was ever written repertoires. Probably four to five hundred songs and and when we were going after football games you know big football games off in a big flotilla of coaches and mortar buses. And i'd always sit down the backseat. It'd be invited in the backseat with all the big toe flags and i think it's the main reason i never got bullied as a teenager. Because i always knew the versus to every song everybody knows the chorus right but not everybody knows all the verses and that was my strength grownup was the big boys. Always said break down. He knows the mercer versus anybody who knows the verses. Yeah they're an important part of the game. I was like the minstrel boy. Being brought down the vaqta single diverse looking through a whole list of all different irish ballads and so on. And there's so many different topics. Basically you got seventeen ninety eight rebellion. You got the war of independence. He got immigration. Got drinking. you got funny songs. And i know you like rebel songs. What's what's a good rebel song. Well like the older ones from the nineteen sixteen period like the foggy do which talks about nineteen sixteen the war of independence kind of just just era even before that when we had a big rebellion in nineteen sixteen because it was a military disaster the fact that we can write songs about defeats and make them still signed honorable and they're very respectable songs are respectful saunders it respects or patriotism pays homage to like There's a line in the in the song. The foggy ju it talks about them and from the plains of royal me because we have a comedy called meath and from the plains of royal meath strongman came hurrying through while tania's hung's with their long range gun sailed through the foggy dew pretentious huns the ads. Also sticks the knife and a little bit. But you know and then adopt talks about these young strong strapping irish. Even if they lost feel like their heroes. Do that again. That course so cool. I'm from the plains of royal me strongman story to years huns with their long range. Guns sale into the foggy. Do whether those young men did march or not. It doesn't matter. It just sounds great. It's propaganda but it's it's good and it's good to celebrate your patriotism three music now. If i was british overlord i wouldn't want you singing that song not back then but i have brought thousands of british tourist around ireland and have the rebel song as well all the british people in they were slaves did at its when we get english tours tour earnkaro particularly where he play the alaska to songs. Is that right the tourist. And sometimes i tried to explain you know. I don't want to offend anybody. I prefer to sing songs. That will peace now But you see as john that have been written in the say thirty or forty years which are pretty hard line and repair more so to the recent conflict in the north. There's one called go on home british soldiers and it's pretty hard light. I remember being in navarra one team in the temple bar dublin and the republicans had played soccer match that night and fifty young come in for after the game and they started seeing that navarre had heretofore been full of happy english tourists and the song goes go on home. British soldiers go on home. That's here with a we don't do. I won't do it up. But i'm just giving you an example of the song. I'm not condoning it. I'm just saying this song cleared the bar. All the english tourist got help them got up and walked out. Let's be honest about it. There is an element of more contemporary rebel songs. That you have to be very careful where you're seeing them and a lot of people would refuse to sing them. But i'm just giving an example and because the song if you want an example of it here it is go on home. Pretty soldiers go on home. Have you got no bbb home of your own for eight hundred years. We fought you without fear. We'll fight you for eight hundred more you know wouldn't be. I would be a little uncomfortable. But you've got immigration songs. You've got love songs. Are you just as three subjects. Yeah usually it's a drink immigration and love drink immigration and love but certainly doesn't happen in that order. Sometimes you get drunk then you get lucky and then you better emigrant tell me you're sitting in bars a lot taking requests. What's the most dreaded request that you don't wanna hear widow. Does the wild rover the wild rover. Yes why don't you like that because I sometimes have to sing at three or four times a night and it just gets into my feelings. It's worse than being ident about. Danny boy danny boy. I love guitar. You don't get tired of it because it's the test for for a singer to sing it. I think i'm not gonna do a perfect job when it puts scott a huge range from very low to very high and i just love. The song is but i love to hear people singing it in context. What was that actually. But it originally danny boy was called the derriere puts. Steve is talking about dairy earlier than boy. Was the dairy air. The dairy dairy the songs arkansas when northern ireland go to the commonwealth games. That's the anthem. We sing believe it or not. Well i thought you'd get tired of it but if you're not tired of it let's finish our interview with liam o'riordon from county cork singing a song from dairy danny boy donnie. He the pa pa.

Let me just right to stop. How audacious is his proposal. Everybody's jaws on the foot to me. It's completely logical is planned viable. What i'm saying is that this is a revolutionary act. A revolutionary act never without resistance that it never without risk and is it already happening it has changed the whole dynamic sub a rescue plan for black america. That's coming up on freakonomics radio right after this hours news so as you have said that you didn't want to write quote race book. Yes i assume that you would however consider this book race book. Well the race books. That i knew were of specific genre right. So there was the race's history. I cannot write every history book. I am out historian even the historical portion of this book. I was pulling my hair. They can maybe. I was getting something wrong and calling historian. I know making sure that i was missing something so i couldn't write that. And then there were the synthesis of our racism and its deleterious effects books. And i certainly didn't wanna write one of those and that's primarily where my dislike of the genre comes from which is that. I never really felt that those books wherever written for black people they were always explaining something that already knew to someone else. I assumed it was all too white. People and i was interested in that. So who's this book written for black people. How do you feel about white people reading. I love you read it. it's wonderful it's no longer. Jane austen was writing to me. But i can read those books and there could be wonderful to me. But i wasn't the audience for those books so we can re things where we are not the target audience and still appreciate that it was written in the content of it. Welcome to the latest installment of the freakonomics radio book club in which we interview an author and hear excerpts from the book. Today's author is charles m. blow an op. Ed columnist at new york times. Who live in his new book is manifesto says so right there in the subtitle. It's called the devil. You know a black power manifesto. Here's a short passage. Black people fled the horrors of the races south for so-called liberal cities in the north and west trading devil. They knew for the devil. They didn't to come to the painful realization that the devil is devil as julian. Bond wants put america after all unscrambled spills. I am race. We tend to think of manifestos as relics of the past the communist manifesto marx and engels vindication of the rights of woman by mary wollstonecraft commonsense. Spy thomas paine. You don't expect to come across one in twenty twenty one. At least i didn't. But i would argue that. Anyone who reads charles blows book will be changed by and moved though in which directions it's hard to say. The devil you know is both deeply personal and unashamedly political. It is calmly descriptive. One moment and fiercely prescriptive the next it. Channels the arguments and the disappointments of malcolm x. james baldwin and charles blow himself. It is a slender book. Built around a large idea. It occurred to me that i have been thinking too. Small all my life about my approach to being in the world and concede my role in it. I had to remember that a big idea could change. The course of history and i was uniquely positioned as a writer not only to express such an idea but also to push it out into the world. The idea grew out of blows reckoning that white supremacy is an enduring feature of america. And what some people. Except as progress. Really isn't i simply cannot accept the prog it because the progress arm is premised on this. You should be with an applaud. The fact that i am inching my way out of oppressing you and he's only taken for two years so far end soon maybe another hundred years or so. We may be finished. My growth may be complete. I may come out of my cocoon. It'd be a butterfly. That's crazy to me. i was born into. It is very likely. I will die with these bodycam. Video of black people being killed because nothing about that architectures chains. My liberation cannot be contingent on your evolution. I can't wait for you to grow. It is such a passive position for me to have to take. And i won't take it. Blow argues it too. Many black americans have been abused for too long in too many ways and that too many white americans pay nothing but lip service to antiracism. He writes that the black lives matter protests. Last summer were a social justice coachella for those deprived by the pandemic of rites of passage parties. And problems he also argues it too. Many black americans have been blinded by personal ambition or co opted by democratic party. That cares about them. Only during elections he finds the status quo grotesque and not worth preserving the slow. Be one night. I said okay. Let me write this down. And i wrote for like five days. Twenty five thousand words of a book proposal rambling messy full of grammatical errors thing. The proposal became a book and the book contains a plan. I realized that. I am proposing nothing. Short of the most audacious power play by black america in the history of the country. Charles blow was born fifty years ago and grew up in the tiny town of gibbs land louisiana. It was situated on the site of plantation once owned by dr jasper gibbs having grown up poor to know that your ancestors were not necessarily for bits a straight blues first book is a memoir called fire. Shut up in my bones. It was published in two thousand fourteen. It didn't on until i was reading. This book that the entire genealogy of my family all free black men as far back as i can trace it the great great great great grandfather in alabama. He's one who said to have saved up money and bought on freedom. Low remembers once. Seen an old family photograph a cousin of a later generation. I flipped over and the date. The picture was taken was on the back. It was in the middle of the great depression and then the price of the frame which was extraordinarily high and it has like google inflation adjustments and what black man in the middle of the great depression. Have the mortgage spent on this ridiculous but a free charles was the youngest of five sons. His mother worked in poultry processing factory before going back to school and becoming a home economics teacher. His father wasn't in the picture he was as blow writes. A construction worker by trade pool shark my habit and a serial philanderer by compulsion. Charles was a good student on a field trip to the state capital during high school. He thought he might like to become governor of louisiana one day. They took us to the governor's mansion and governor edward struts into the receiving room. And i was like. Oh my gosh guy so cool. He was running against david duke at one point. He says the only thing. David duke have in common with both good under the sheets. I wanna be this guy. He stayed in louisiana for college attending grambling state a well-known. Hpc you or historically black college or university. He wound up studying communications even early on. He had his doubts. We had a career day and one of the women who came clearly was unhappy with her work. You know jealous. Starting out only make and i think she said something like sixty thousand dollars a year. It was really low. And i remember like excusing myself from the seminar and going to the bathroom and literally throwing 'cause i think like i cannot have college and before i can't do it so then i just made up my mind. I'm just going to be the best at this. And hopefully the money will come later. And i'll be comfortable on that dimension. He has succeeded intern. At the shreveport times louisiana and then moved north a couple years at the detroit news and then to the new york times where for years he was part of the team that produces maps and charts and diagrams. He left briefly to do similar work at national geographic and return to the new york times in two thousand eight as an opinion columnist. He's become a star attraction especially in recent years as his focus on race and racism has intersected with a broader interest in these topics but this success came at a cost as he writes in the devil. You know i always felt safe in my majority black hometown and my majority black college town. I never understood how much of a gift that was. Until i ventured north and that sense of safety was replaced by stocking sense of dread four lows move to the north was an echo of what has come to be called the great migration from roughly nineteen fifteen until around nineteen seventy. Some six million black southerners moved to destination. Cities like detroit chicago new york and philadelphia. They were fleeing jim. Crow laws and searching for better work in the beginning especially a majority of the migrants were single men. This left behind the south. That was missing many of its men. I was born in nineteen seventy in louisiana at the end of the great migration into a world shaped by vacancy my tiny hometown. Look gibson lost a full quarter of its population between the nineteen ten and nineteen twenty sentences during the first wave of the great migration. By the time. I was born there. Were clearly more. Women than men and the most recent census estimates remained three women to every two men in town so the original sin here is obviously slavery but can you talk about how significant long-term was the fact that freed slaves weren't given land that they'd been promised they weren't given access to healthcare and education. It seems like that's what ultimately led to the circumstances that made migration to the northern cities so appealing. Yeah well there are a lot of impediments at the end of the civil war in years. After a quarter of all black people america seriously ill or died what little healthcare for a structure they had collapsed with civil war. Some of the bigger plantations just as a way of protecting property with treat enslaved people for certain illnesses they're displaced from all that and the federal government is saying to the states. You have to take care of these people in the state of state and federal government. What are you talking about. We have good white boys. Coming back limping. We have to get them into the hospital and so no. One stepped in their free into starvation. Bitter enemy territory. You don't own anything. Where are you gonna go but somehow even in the midst of all that these pockets of survival and prosperity even papa. Where black to say. No one's going to help us. We just have to do it ourselves. And they create economies and communities. Part of the human spirit is wants to work. It wants to create something it wants to be remembered it wants prosperity and so it will create out of nothing. We should all be sharing that story but that is not the way it happened and in fact all of those communities one by one got burned to ground or dismantling some of the way because it was a threat to white of. How dare you succeed with all of this against you. The destination cities up north meanwhile beckoned with higher paying work and a supposedly enlightened view on race. It was easy for why people that are north. Look down their noses at white people in south so you behaving borsley. This is a portrait. But when black people showed up in real numbers in the north and mid west they had to put their money where the mouth was in. They ended up using minute very same tactics that the south of us housing segregation educational segregation massive police oppression as blow sees it. Those tactics have created a twenty-first-century. That's less different from the twentieth. Than we'd like to think for one hundred and fifty years black americans have been hoping and waiting we have marched and resisted many of our most prominent leaders have appeased and kowtowing tout. We have seen our hard earned gains eroded by involving refining white supremacy. While at the same time we are told that true and full equality is in the offing but there is no more guarantee of that today than there was a century ago. You rate we like to masculine is white supremacy when in fact it is just as likely to be spritz perfume. White women have known from the beginning in this country that they possess the power to activate white supremacy in spirit to extreme violence. The activation of white terror is a white woman's soft power when you write in these categories is always with the unspoken not all people not all black people but in the aggregate. This is true. What is of all slave owners of white women. They made a market for black breast milk. Black women many of them were treated literally like house. Anything many of those women's own children with without proper nutrition because all of them it was being used up if you look at many of most of the seminal moments around tremendous terror in this country it was about or the white men couched it. As a defense of wife emitting emmett till is killed which is like the big bang of the civil rights movement because he suspected have talking slick to some white woman who later in life says he didn't do any of that. Now you see the same thing popping up with these cell phone videos a largely women same. Ain't gonna call the police on people knowing full well that the police are the muscles. White moderates in the north and west plead their desire to be better allies but they refuse to recognize that the system uses their very presence as a weapon employing brutal police tactics in the name of keeping them safe promoting hyper segregation and imbalance in the name of keeping them comfortable. They want to do something but relinquish nothing. It's all an enormous pageant. Afo property in eighty dollar yoga pants holding eight dollar taes. They award themselves. Laurels for doing the least bit of labor to lessen the pain of an affliction rather than curate. They focused on mitigating the impact of white supremacy rather than radical it and in its worst form this of misdirected milquetoast nursing a nanny tries to fix people. Black people with whom there is nothing wrong. Other than being trapped in wastelands of despair starved of access opportunity and resources among the wealthy who are thus incline. They give a little and expect to be praised a lot. Before the great migration the vast majority of black americans ninety percent lived in the south by one thousand nine hundred seventy that number had fallen to roughly fifty percent. The standard argument holds that this migration was unbalance worthwhile. Charles blows argument is that the experiment has failed. Black people move north and west. During the great migration as the result of a combination of a push and pull the push was the racial terror and racial oppression of the jim crow south the pull was the hope of a better life economic social and political. I say the same sense of terror and oppression that push people out of the south has been reincarnated in the north and west. Hyper militaristic policing predatory incarceration and the rebirth of a hate. Group movement are rendering destination cities unwelcoming inhospitable and in some cases uninhabitable. And this is where we get to. Charles blows thesis what he calls a grand generational undertaking a rescue mission for black america. This book is my big idea. Black people in america should reverse the great migration return to the states where they had been at or near the majority after the civil war and to the states where they currently constitute a large percentage of the population in effect. Black people could colonize and control the states. They would have controlled if they had not fled them. When you first started voicing this idea to people you knew what was their response before you'd written the book everybody's jaw on the floor. And i'm like i'm not fully appreciating that they think this is such a radical thing because to me it's completely logical was important to me being that i wasn't centering whiteness in the narrative of this i was literally talking to a young twenty. Something black person has committed to a job. Still not married just trying to get their toe in the world still free enough to be anywhere in the country who might be considering where they want to call home and how targeted do you want the reverse migration to be in other words. I could see that if you really want to optimize political power you would wanna be standing there with like flag but clipboard. Yeah yeah yeah no. I'm not going to be but i did. Single out specific states that i think should be considered and they stretch from louisiana up to delaware. So it's not some of those appalachian state's not tennessee or kentucky west. Virginia it is also not florida and not texas. My reverse migration argument targets only nine of the state that are included in the census count louisiana mississippi alabama georgia south carolina north carolina for jinya maryland and delaware specifically i suggest gravitating to the major cities arranged like jewels on a chain which dot the interstate. Twenty interstate ninety five corridor from shreveport louisiana to wilmington delaware. Explain why state power is the optimal forced to gather versus federal per se. Well federal is great. There's a reason that we're called. The united states of america half of the power in the country is reserved for the states to exercise independent of the federal government in fact the constitution specifically says any power not specifically delegated to the federal government is reserved for the state. So even if they didn't think of it in the constitution if they didn't give it to the government is belongs to the state and so the states have Real it is sometimes disproportionate power over many of the things that black people are most concerned about. Mass incarceration is buying large a state and local issue. Most of the criminal code is developed on the state level editors executed on the local level. You can take that onto health policy in educational policy. In addition there already twelve hundred majority black cities in america ninety percent of the during the south but there are no cities in the constitution. The state can preempt anything to city wants to do so. You're not truly free. Even if you live in an atlanta or new orleans where you have a majority of population because the state can say you're free up until we say you're not. Let's say that all the black people in the us who don't live in the south or even fifty percent of them were to move to the target states and cities that you propose. I'm curious how much political leverage that would actually produce a whether federal leverage. Maybe isn't the point. My arguments that gaining state power would increase both federal and state power. This is strategically arrayed. Just the right amount in particular states that have moving back. You can control a whole band of states in the south the six maybe seven. Now that gives you control of the fourteenth senate seats. That's federal power. Can you talk about what you see. Is the strongest antecedents for movement. Like this whether it's the republic of new afrika in the nineteen sixties whether it's the back to africa movement. Some were black nationalist proposals mutating. They wanted to break away another separate country within the country. That is not what i'm opposing. I am proposing that you consolidate power within the country actually think the strongest is not likely the white people moving in mass to vermont specifically for the purpose of consolidating liberal power and changing a state from more conservative or more liberal and it worked but i modeled my advocacy around the black journalists. Who advocated for the great migration in the first place. There is a long history of black using the press as a clarion call to reach out to black people. And i'm trying to be part of that legacy coming up after the break. How likely is it. That charles blows plan can become a reality. They will be disadvantaged me to say oh. I've worked it all out down to the last period and have your flights and your bus tickets. We'll be right back with charles blow and the devil you know freakonomics.

Now that's progressive. This is freakonomics radio. Here's your host stephen dubner. The new york times columnist channels blow has written a book called the devil. You know a black power manifesto in it blow urges black americans living outside of the south to reverse the great migration of the twentieth century and returned to the region where their ancestors came from. He is targeted. A particular set of southern cities and states with a dual goal of maximizing black political power and creating a sort of anti-racist sanctuary. I am talking about a grin. Generational undertaking a rescue mission for black america and that mission begins with the states. Which are the truce centers of power in this country. And as such control the lion's share of the issues that bedevil black lives criminal justice judicial processes education healthcare economic opportunity and assistance. You include a quote at the very beginning of the book from james baldwin. Who said for the negro. There's no difference between the north and the south there's just a difference in the way they castrate you but the fact of the castration is the american fact does that to some degree cut against your argument in the book however what i am saying is not that. Northern racism is so much worse than southern racism Utopia in the south but rather that racism is everywhere. Stop pretending that you can run away to the north and achieve anti-racist space. It's everywhere. I do say however that some of this behavior by the northern police state in the western police state is average is a throwback to something that the south did. But it's doing less of and is that because the south outgrew it. Or why i look at. Racism is having kind of developmental cycles old man in the south in. It's a young boy acting out in these cities you have to go through the stages. What's the larger priority for you political leverage or establishing or enlarging a majority minority community for its own sake to diminish the exposure to the racism. I believe political powers on par with a cultural cohesiveness. I believe that something is lost when you are constantly thrown into racial warfare when you're constantly having to defend yourself the finger right to exist. Defender physical body. Defend yourself in court where you could be in a space that just sees you as a human being and honors you for whatever you bring to that human experience it hard for me to imagine how that feels every day to be devalued so consistently and systematically and it makes me wonder how you don't just explode honestly well some people do and some people go to early grades you look at mortality rates. And you see that black people we went just for the factors are dying a little bit sooner than other. People attribute a lot of that racial stress. So it's literally costing you use of your life. But racial bias pro anti-black among white people at the percentage of no different than south in north or in the midwest. And it seems to me that. The cleveland point is cruelty. There are certain people who don't mind cruelty whatsoever now. The people who are gassed the idea that you would treat a living thing cruelly. That doesn't mean that they believe that black people white people are equal human beings. they were abolitionists. Who abhorred the idea. But they were complete weizer purposes. When abraham lincoln gives that lincoln douglas debate one of them. He makes clear. He's a white supremacist. But he doesn't want slavery so the entire book was written during the trump administration. Yes i'm curious whether you feel. The argument has become any less intense because of a new presidency that has less white supremacist etc. No doesn't depend on any one administration if it did rack obama to solve the problem. More clinton would've to carded It's not democrats republicans even specifically it is black. People don't have enough power to force the political structures to respond. You argue in the book. That if black in the south were to acquire the real political leverage you're describing. They and the democratic party wouldn't necessarily be on the same team anymore. Black people on social services are not very liberal. They just cannot abide. The republican party's courting of the racists and so they've democratic years ago. These parties were flipped so if black people can get over the absolute racism of democratic party. One hundred years ago or or seventy five years ago. This was the party of the clinton it was the party of slavery blaby were able to get over. It and the democratic party was able to transform itself so it is possible for the democrats over one hundred spend it may be possible for the republicans over hunter span. Who knows we often think. That liberalism includes racial galateri news and it does not just because i believe in fighting climate change and women's rights to choose and that gay people should get married does not mean that i am necessarily also a racial gala tyrian although the stated preference for racial gal -tarian co travels with those things typically because political parties are organized around that you've been taught that the coalition should include all those things. You can't belong to this party unless you buy. Every single thing we sell but human beings operating their own lives from whichever baskets they want to choose from and leave things in the other basket. I am strongly in favor of gay marriage. But there are a lot of black people were not including obama for awhile. Every president until baba in the decades preceding the great migration not even racial oppression and racial terror. Were enough to dislodge. Black people from the south. They needed a nudge. A shock to the economic system. To jolt them out of migratory stasis and into action that shocked cain with the boll weevil infestation in cotton states beginning around the turn of the twentieth century the combined forces of an economic crisis and a social justice crisis finally set the migration into motion. I believe that we are seeing a similar scenario. With the economic crisis created for black people by the covid nineteen pandemic in a grand twist of irony the staggeringly incompetent response to the crisis by donald trump. a white power president may will provide the necessary accelerate for a black power migration. When i saw data on the reverse migration that you're encouraging especially the numbers for the atlanta metro area. I was sure it was a typo. That area has had an increase of around two hundred and fifty thousand a quarter of a million black people just between two thousand ten and two thousand sixteen so you charles are not the head of this movement you may not be the tail of the movement. But you're not the head. No it has been going on for two decades maybe more the black population of georgia has doubled from nineteen ninety. Two thousand twenty. The first black mayor of major city with maynard jackson in atlanta nineteen seventy-three. That was because atlanta had become majority black. Just in nineteen seventy now. Almost every major city in the south nine including florida and texas has a black mayor and most of them are majority black cities. It has changed the whole dynamic of the south. Let's say that you create great political leverage on the municipal and state levels. And then we say okay. It's time to really make it happen on the federal level. What at the federal level would you most want to use that leverage to accomplish state power in federal power overlap when it comes to senate seats and electoral college votes wouldn't black people where the majority of the coalition that delivered georgia for joe biden. It was the first time since at least reconstruction that that had happened when you can deliver the state s the majority of the coalition. That's a whole different calculus. You're not the ten fifteen extra percent around detroit or in philadelphia. They need to excite at the last moment when white people basically split their vote down the middle and when you have people elected to the senate where the majority coalition who sends them there is black. They have to pay attention to black agenda items so all the bills in the senate. Now like studying reparations for that to advance you have to have people in advocating for. I asked this friend of mine. He's mid to late thirties. Black he grew up in. I'd call the mid south when i described to him. Your idea. he wrote back to me. Said it sounds interesting. It's a clear and understandable strategy which is more than hoping the rest of the country sees the light. I'm sure it will be met with a lot of resistance and violence. I assume white people will change the rules or completely circumvent them in some way. The north will suddenly become very conservative. All of that's likely it would be disingenuous for me to say. Oh i've worked it all out down to the last period and i figured it out. Have your flights and your bus tickets. What i'm saying is that this is a revolutionary act. Revolutionary acts are never without resistance than ever without risk. But you have to decide. Do you really want power for you and your children and their children are not the you really want to create a space in this country where white supremacists not the governing ethos or not if you wanna stay nestled in your little -partment in brooklyn or in sausage chicago death situation that you're making but i want you to make that choice in the full knowledge that that is not the only option you have. Whenever black people make progress. Why people feel threatened and respond forcefully emancipation and the civil war gave rise to the ku klux klan which formed just months after the war ended. The supreme court decision in brown v board of education striking down racial segregation in schools gave rise to the white supremacist citizens. Councils the election of the first black president gave rise to the tea party. It's accessories to america. To hone is instruments of oppression. Every time part of it fell it simply reemerged in a more elegant form. Battling racism in this country is like cutting heads of the hydra coming up after the break. What sort of response has charles blows idea been getting. I already know going into this. I cannot count on the establishment including the black establishment to agree with me.

Wherever books are sold. This is freakonomics. Radio here's your host. Stephen dubner the new york times columnist charles blow proposed that black americans should consolidate their political power in southern states. It's an idea that some people might radical. Can you talk about putting this idea to political and social and religious leaders talk about the sort of responses you got in general it is hesitation and that's why i like to talk directly to the people reading this book. The even black establishment is the establishment. Their power is vested in the status quo. There are districts in california the depend on black people begging for them to have black representative. Those representatives are never going to say. Hello this great idea. Black mayors of cities in the north midwest. But never going to say. This is a good idea. So i already know going into this. I cannot count on the establishment including the black establishment to agree with me and that includes barack obama correct. I did not put it to barack obama because getting brcko very difficult you do write about him quite a bit in the book you call him a feel good black leader who would allow white liberals to purchase absolution on the cheap. So my sense is that you don't feel that he would be interested in it. Correct my gut tells me no. But i don't know if he would be. Let's talk a little bit about the obama presidency. One would think that the first black president who was a democrat would have addressed racism in a way that would satisfy at least address a lot of the problems that you've identified in the book. Let's say that's the assumption. How would you judge the actual accomplishment then toward that goal. Does this so little federal government can do on those big things mess corporation our community policing on the health front hands down. Obamacare is usually important for black people but it does it get fully utilized because the southern states where most black people live most of them have republican governors. Who refused to take the money to expand medicaid so he does things but i wasn't expecting him to solve american racism before. Do you feel he was too much of an accommodation. As though i believe some of that he may have felt was by necessity. That's why i connect the through line with a lot of the major black leaders over time. They like they had on his choice. But in retrospect it doesn't help but people as i pondered obama's hope speech that night in new york. It occurred to me the he was only the latest ambassador of the political hope. The holiday and the inevitable blindness that it renders that he has many other comrades in that crusade. Perhaps the most famous of whom being booker t. washington. Eventually both men were forced to confront the truth. That all black idealist must reckon with white supremacist cannot be appeased. It can't be bargained with it. Can't be convinced. It is america's embryonic fluid. America was born in it and genetically coded by it no amount of hoping or waiting coalition building or kumbaya can redress that reality hope as a religious tool may well be essential but hope as a political tool is folly. You see black leaders over and over again. Say to themselves. Maybe if i just do this. They'll stop terrorizing my community. And they give inch one of the black power leaders the sixties. He says you give inch. They'll take a yard. You give a yard burn across on every time. That's how it works. They're not giving it. It's only you give an inch you write about. Wbz boys and his embrace of what he called the talented tenth which you argue is elitist centrally and now a hundred some years after boys wrote that you write quote too many of the black elite get drafted into a weight adjacent privilege suckled by personal prosperity and personal comfort blinded by the glamour of the high society. They become the neal house. Negroes placated passive a resurrection of an antebellum relic in which the best and brightest of black society. Those who would otherwise be. The generals resistance or rebellion are lulled to sleep by luxuries. The more talented and successful you are the more tightly money establishment embrace issue cleaves you from the struggling plight of your people and be nights you as an honorary member of fairs. It is easy to get lost in this seduced by it convinced of it. I'm curious were you lost in that ever. Were you seduced by that. I was in it if you are. What holly peterson. 'cause the accomplishes class in new york you're part of this. A successful cocktail party has a newspaperman in the noticed. And it has an and that becomes your social life and it is artificial. Did you enjoy it in the beginning. You can enjoy it. Lovely glass of wine with may be detained is wonderful and you go home comfortable and buzzing from the adrenaline in the aura of it. All and yet the masters of black people have not been held by that one. Bit and you see your own success this becomes the talented fallacy. If i just succeed that will be the shining light for everybody else by coattails will drag other people into prosperity not true. The reason they're not prospect not because they don't have an avenue is because they are being actively suppressed and someone has to actively start fighting depression and it needs to be our most talented people are strongest fighters are best writers and artists have to get down to the trenches. Release the martini glass. Get down in the mud and help fight. Charles blow himself has released. The martini glass at least the new york version. He's still writes for the times. And he still keeps an apartment in brooklyn last year he moved to atlanta. So when did you start feeling that. That might be a good idea for you. Personally forget about the treatise that you wrote for you personally to move back down so well. As i started to write it became clear to me that i believe you said. I can't write this book and not move back to harlem poles but also actually believe what i'm writing. I believe that this is a solution. I'm not trying to convince the fifth year olds to move. It's really not about my demographic there's more targeted a younger people who have always been the majority of any migration. Let's say that your book inspires hundreds of thousands of young black people. Maybe millions to move to the cities and states. You suggest what does it look like. They're in twenty years. Describe what seventy year. Old charles blow sees. When he looks around socially politically economically. I see an accelerated attempt to disenfranchise the new voters. Who are coming. We sing that already after this election. But that the forces of change over take them you get a democratic governor possibly a black one maybe stacey abrams and also possibly a democratic state house which george hadn't hadn't forever and you start to take on the big issues which disproportionate like back people. You look at the state criminal code. There's a lot of work to do there. That would make life safer more fulfilled or happy for black people and also just stop wasting human capital in cages. We examine what our children are learning it. From what textbooks Those decisions are made on a statewide basis. Make sure our textbooks are reflective of the truth in the fullness of our history we expand obamacare. There's a raging hiv infection rate here in georgia largely around young black people. A lot of them are low income and low income people with hiv disproportionate. Get their medication for medicaid. All they do is take the money and expand medicaid. You save those people's lives you continuous in the two senators from georgia who represented black interest to the senate and possibly more representatives to the house depending where black people settle in the state. Likely you'll also see some white flight is just a history of black majorities. Why people leave it. What did i fail to ask you that i should have. Or what further would you like to talk about that. We haven't i like to make this point. Which is i am not suggesting that people will be moving back into a utopia because if white majority's created racial utopias every white person in america would be prospering. You will still move back into human problems. You will still have poverty. You'll still have crime you'll still have income inequality that's just human condition. But it is undeniable to me that it is better not to live on the white supremacy than it is to live under it because india cricket that people who don't live on do better than those who do and i am saying if racism is almost universal in this country it is better to consolidate your power that you have enough power to actually fight it then and here is one last passage of charles. Blow reading from the devil you know. We made a block of states a region in which we and our children are equally conditioned to success support and safety we need a space in which black imagination is equally encouraged where we recognize that black children dreamed to the gays on the same stars as all others that adventure and invention or universally human traits demand to be nurtured in all. The black story must be much more than slavery oppression and poverty. It must be so much bigger than the part of our literature. White america chooses to reward stories wrapped around racism stories of struggling for self acceptance and societal acceptance in a white world riven with that racism. We need space to reverse the absorption of white anxiety into our flesh their fear of us contempt of us disdain for us as frederick douglass once wrote about escaping slavery. I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until i prayed with my legs. Black people must pray with their legs. That was charles. His book is called the devil. You know black power manifesto. His first book which i mentioned earlier is a memoir called fire. Shut up in my bones and it has just been adapted into an opera with music by terence blanchard and the bredow casey lemons. It opens at the metropolitan opera. In new york. This september it will be the first opera by a black composer ever to be performed at the met. Here's a taste.

Welcome to episode one hundred and sixty seven of the jim rome podcast in the event that you are without a pulse and or calendar. Let me remind you. It is march march. Means one thing march madness the big dance and we only a few days out. So i am absolutely pumped to bring on a mainstay of the tourney. He's been to two final fours. He is a former national coach of the year. He's been in the game for nearly five decades. He is without a doubt a college basketball legend. He is one of my all time. Favorites. he is bob huggins. Hug has his team in india. A three seed and he is poised potentially do some real damage. I love talking to hug. I do not wanna waste another second. So let's swing on out to indianapolis ground zero for march madness for twenty twenty one and let's get this thing pop in episode one. Sixty seven with. Bob huggins is coming at you right now. My man first and foremost hog indies crazy and challenging times. How in the world are you and those closest to you right now. Bring me up to date hug. How's your world good. It's good. I mean where There were loosening up a little bit as we go We were kind of corn to our room for a spell and then we were allowed to move around on the floor and then we were allowed to go downstairs and and eat downstairs together. So it's so we actually had practice last night so we are making progress brother. I hear that i hear that. It is a process of making progress. So i had to practice go. What was it like to get everybody on the floor together. Great they were. They were very enthusiastic about being able to get on the floor practice with each other. It's it's been a while it's been a while hug and it's been a lot. Let me ask you something. You your three seed and you're gearing up for another ncaa tournament and you've had so many great runs but before we get into that. I need to know how rewarding have been for you to come home and not only coach at west virginia but to elevate that program to national prominence to approve the improved facilities and the outlook. The way you have what's been like to return home. well obviously. I love to play. So i was born in morgantown. My mom and dad both born in morgantown town and Be able to come back to the university. that's graduated from. I think especially for everybody. But i think particularly special for me because my relationship with the people in the state and it's just been it's been great and we've been fortunate enough to to make some runs and make people proud so that's kind of what i wanted to do. And that's exactly what you're doing. And i'm asking about that run in a minute or your next potential run but as a great coach bob. I know you'll tell me you can't win without great players. And i will agree with you so i need to hear you break down yourself as a player because as an example. You've seen it and there's been a lot of talk about that. Espn dot com piece where they rank every single coach according to their playing ability. They've got you number nine out of sixty eight right behind. Console martin in lawn krueger but ahead of florida's mike white. What's your reaction to that. And does that sound about right to you a little. I think probably a little low Taking into account. All things i was able to do but I like going don't don't packwood. Don't walk that back. I like where you're going with that. I think they did abby. Well it's it's. it's very subjective. Very subjective we had guys on there that Very familiar with. That really didn't play because he hurt his knee once he couldn't play when it could play. So it is subjective and those lists are just there to talk about but i don't know maybe maybe it's because you and i go way back and maybe i'm getting older and i don't see things remember. Things is clearly just taking you. You want and patrick ewing both hug. No no those guys. I mean those two guys national champions was that was a world champion so are so he all right so i'll put him ahead of your slot him ahead of you but juwan below you. You know what's funny hug. Well maybe not so funny but when you came out of west virginia you had a shot with the seventy sixers. And there's this amazing story about how you found out whether or not you made the team. Maybe you think folks know that story but not everybody does who told you. And what did they say out of mexico alam echo who was the trainer There were three of us in the locker room number one number two herman harris myself and he walked in. He said as they do in. Philly said You wanna never made it. Who didn't make it. Of course both guys jumped up and said just tell us who made it man just tells me he said none of them efforts and ran out the door and then he was a he was kind of a comical kinda guy so they thought he was. They thought it was. Just you know making fun done. Come back so pretty soon. They run out there. Run up and down the hall trying to find finding to find out if he was joking or if it was real i was got enough All the gear. That i could get stuff done a bag for mementos and i was out of there i was gone. I know why because you knew. Unlike elliott and harris they may have been better players. But you were smarter. You knew a time. It was now this guy. He was the trainer right and it is. The story goes did he. Or did he. Not look like arthur fonzie rally. Well they call him the fawns. Okay called him the phones because he he did sell. Yeah it was good. But i mean we're talking about could i make it. I mean they had doug collins world b free henry bibby place join version was at the yeah right so you got the fawns. All right the finds comes in and says do wanna know which you guys made the team and these two guys like. Yeah yeah. I wanna know. And font said quote none of you. Mother fuckers any ran out the room and didn't come back yet. really funny zacks onto. Yeah right yeah store and no one can find him and there was nobody around now. I mean Coach mcmahon was gone. They were all going the gm. Everybody was or sinus. College couldn't find a soul that was by one point hug like that. The coach the coach or the gm did not have the decency to let you know you got cut by the fawns who fdu and ran out the door man. That's that's just wrong. I was good. Would i still have some of that gear. You know what's great about this aisle. You were good with it and then a few decades later. I'm not good with it but all right. That's cool that's fine. You know hug you. You are like a coach's coach while you're the son of a coach but you you love the profession so much and you love guys who came before you and you love the guys who come after you and there's so many great stories like take take jim valvano guy that you absolutely want to spend some time with what made jim valvano so unique for those who do not know in. What was it like when you finally caught up with him. That first time it got to spend time with him. He could stay up at night as long as i could. Is that code for you guys. Drink together No i didn't the code. I mean we we were actually we got a. We gotta some matches and we were. We had to match us and we started five of them and so that we had to read match the red matt stops and the black match stop so we knew who and where we were. Moving these matches around we were talking about you know how play a different a different zone or whatever. We're talking about at that time. And he said to me afterwards he said you know what. This has been really a lot of fun. I i really don't do this very much so it was. It was kinda neat. Why like that an on some level kind of surprises me because man guy was just hit so much it and he love the game so much and he loved coaching so much kind of surprises me. That he didn't do that. So much is that i think he got into. I mean he was probably the most sought after speaker country for for quite a while and he and he had his own tv show. If you remember he had a lot of things going on. I mean it's amazing that he bounced saudi balanced and was good at everything he did. You know was i to talk to you about a little bit of big west because my background you may or may not recall. I went to uc santa barbara at a time. When tarek and i wanna ask about talk when. Unlv was in all their glory. Jerry pimm who came to uc santa barbara. All of a sudden boom started scheduled. Big time big time programs. When we were on our way up and i remember jim valvano coming into our building and keep in mind. Our building hug had six thousand seats and man jimmy v. he was larger than life. I just saw like. I cannot believe this guy is in our house and just living so large. He was amazing. I mentioned coaches my guy. Chris beard absolutely loves. You just loves you loves everything you represent. I got to get your thoughts on my guy crispier. What do you think about him as a coach and a competitor and a guy. I think what he's done There is is phenomenal To get to the final four in that short period of time. He's a great coach. He's not a good coach. Gregg coke glad who said i guess to what about tarak man back in the day. Remember talk when he had all those guys in tim. Gerbrich was there and they played that amoeba defense in man. They were so furious. What was it like for you to hang out with tarp back in the day. We'll kind of talks to jabba him. A blast At janko was very good to me. Ed ran all the nike clinics. And i was back when i was at of akron one. Nobody knew who i was. And they put me on kind on the tour. And so i got to go sit with those guys and hotel room and basically had sweet and i just sat and listened listened to lute olson and you name all all the great guys at the time i i'd sit and listen to them and then i got to. I got to know him and they were great to me. And if i ever had a question wanna talk about something. Whatever their right to me absolutely phenomenal and really honestly nobody. And and Talk sauce play against illinois illinois the two consecutive fours and all that and we played them and we didn't particularly good game and he said made me up and so i went over and so he and charlie spoon our there and and texas. I gotta solution for you. What's that he said Give them all roller skates. I said what. Am i going with rollerskates. He said take him up to the top of the mountain. So what would you do with roller skates on. Top of mount. Isa push them all off. Start over amazing amazing and great about that story hug. I'm so glad that not. Only he tell you that but he told you that at piero's for those who don't know hug tell them about piero's i mean there's so many classic classic things that have happened that restaurant. That is a great classic. Italian joint in vegas over clippers job there. Tell me. tell me about that meeting you this And and the owner of the clippers. Sir offer clippers job and you obviously did not say yes. Did you think about that. Yeah thought about my thought about it. But now i'm not. La scares me me too. And i was hoping there is a lot of shit to do a lot of shit to do a lot of things go wrong but it's not like that was the nba job you've got offered. So did you ever come close. I mean looking back. I should have taken the miami job. Which was the first wii offered Should take an. It was a lot of money. And i think a great organization great place to live. That's probably if i was gonna take one. I probably should have taken that one so remind me. What year was that most shortly. After we went to four which. I don't know i you know i don't i really don't look back. You know i. I told you the story many times but i there's a guy there's a guy that they'll west. When i was a kid. I grew up in montana. Five hundred people to stop lights nine bars and a truck and he'd come pick us up he'd come picks up and take to court so we could play and neighboring towns. And whatever and i'm looking. I'm in the middle one time and so i'm sitting there and i look up. There's no review mayor and i said Felt you don't have river mayor. He said boy. We ain't going backwards. And from that point on i have not looked back a love that story. I can't hear that story enough boy. We ain't going backwards looking backwards. We ain't going backwards. The only thing. I like more about that. Hug is the ratio of bars to stop lights. Ninety two but that'll happen town of about five hundred speaking of nine bars hug. Bring me up to date. What's what's your poison these days you and i've done this a long long time and i've kind of changed my poison over the years. I'm curious where you're at these days which poison Basically die mountain dew for diet. Mountain dew treating you Most base pretty good. Nothing on a saturday night after a tough game drugs. Not trying to cause any problems. Here hug i'm just Tasking you know like every once everyone's walk a little bit of the white house but as you work and i got you i mean if you could tell me about your poison just you about mine whether you want to hear it or not. I was clear for a long time. Actually it was all about bombay sapphire for a long time until kind of tore me up. Downgraded to vodka moved onto keila for some reason hug late in life. And i know you're enjoying this story a lot. I can tell late in life. I kind of picked up scotch. Like i'm trying to figure out what that's all about all of a sudden that's kind of fun. That's kind of where. I'm at occasional wondering bourbon is the is an urban the brown choice though so told some tobin. I'm kind of out of touch. Like a not martha young fiery guy coming up anymore. And i'm just kind of a middle-aged gone a little bit out of touch so i'll probably work my way there. I'm just not there yet. But i'm told i'm told that that it's the brown liquor of choice. Maybe so i don't know about you. But every time i finish a workout man. I'm hungry and i'm looking for some real protein. Do this next time. You're in that situation. Do not make a shake. don't eat a bar instead. Grab a bag of beef jerky from old trapper or trapper. Beef jerky tasty and tender. Because it's made with real strips of stake in quality spices that are smoked over wood fire. And it goes with you wherever you go make sure you look for it in a clear view. Back the clearview bag where you can see the quality that you're buying look for all trapper in major retail stores near you if you don't see it as for by name because no other jerky compares all trapper which are beef. Some of the guys. Some of the guy. Some of the players. Mike when i first got into the business and when i first started talk way back in the day i was just so captivated and so fascinated by nick van. Exel as you probably recall. His fearless is swagger. Man is it is big game capabilities. Like what was it. Like to have nick back in asia quarterback on the floor. He was terrific. It was terrific. He was Think about him was he was He knew what he wanted to do. And and kinda did it. And i learned that you know. Fighting and arguing with them wasn't very productive. So i just kinda set all right. Here's the ball. You're you know you do what you do. And he did and he did and he did. I mean these guys. There are also different. Like i feel like tell me. i'm wrong and again. Maybe my memory skewed by feel like danny fortson like when i watch him i think back now in his career like did that guy goes entire career. Never miss a shot. I feel like he never missed a shot. I don't remember him missing a shot. Is that just only one is rebounds. Weren't up and then he would kinda crotch it so he could could crotch in a couple of times get two rebounds and then school only dan right that he yeah. I just don't remember him. Neck was the best. A big game score or late game scores that i've i've ever seen. He made unbelievable baskets to win games yet. Crazy with us and the nba. Hey how do you explain that hug. What exactly is that. How do you explain that. We've got a big set. I mean he is not afraid at all. There's no fear at all like if he made more big time. Big game shots on both levels like where do you. Where would you put shawn butler. I mean he was clutch really really clutch like in that regard. How do those two compare. It's day all the time. i watch it. I them to tape at the end of the first half. He makes three pointer any says something then. I can't make out what he was saying. So i kept asking him. He kept laughing any finally told me i said what did you say he said i had that shot and i look at it he said and i said i own college basketball and love it though but but he did though right at that time that time he did he did. So do you just kind of hanging out in the hotel room right now. Are you killing time you open. This conversation comes to an end soon where we are touching base with you breath waiting for you to call so we're still get right. Oh yeah. I can keep firing questions. We're still good. I don't disrespect your time. We it was. I really enjoyed the times whenever We were here in india or wherever we were we could go sit most harrison. Sit and talk. And people were standing around. And we were broadcasting. All over. the united states is pretty good. A man's good times right you. Your memories impeccable. It's incredible the stuff that you remember. It's so true those those were good times but however however hug you know as well as anybody there is no rear view mirror man. We ain't looking back. You and i are still having good times like this. Shit's not as good as you and i being together but this is so much better than not talking. There is no rear view mirror. Well good. I'm good good good. I'm glad to hear that works for so fun. It was. i was thinking about this. And i don't know i mean relegated to to one floor and and all that kind of stuff we got and they have to understand on. I'm not being critical. It's just it's not the same. It's not the same as seeing all your friends and and everybody that you haven't seen for a while and for me as a young coach when i got to spend time with the legends of college basketball you can't you can't even compare you know you're right. I'm mocking it. Look i don't wanna be that guy. Was i get off my lawn. It's not the way it used to be. It was better then. But there's something to be said law. That shit was better than and if you've never been to a final four at least not especially back in the day or the day hog. Did i remember walking. I don't know if it was. I mean i can remember having dinner. Tom penders the week of the final. Four i can remember walking with my wife janet to the stadium. I told the story the other day hug that i'm walking. I hear this rome. Jim rome jim rome swing around and this guy looks at me and he says jim. It's skip prosser a really a fan of your work. I'm like are you kidding me. Did you say that to me. I can remember going back and forth hug with jim. Herrick back in the day and they were in the final four and i looked up at after he wanted. 'em like hey jim music. How you like me now rome. How you like me now. I mean you're right. Those those were amazing. Times weren't that you're talking about to west. Virginia guys. I know right as the not willing central and west. Virginia jim herrick was born in charleston. Went to the university of charleston west. Virginia hot. you know what's amazing about that. I did not tell you those two stories for that reason. That's that's i mean. Yes i know this. But i was not thinking that consciously when i said that how. 'bout that a couple of west virginia guys that that can't be a coincidence right to very dear friends and one of the great guys of all time but what about skipping he got he was one of the great guys of all time man. You talk about coaching tree. What a great guy what what made him so unique. Why was he so different and so beloved because he wasn't is genuine. Yeah are percent john. I used to talk about whenever we go our separate ways and he went away and and I went to kansas state and then back to west virginia. We used to talk about. Why don't we get line. We go back to cincinnati and Twice we'll meet somewhere go to his one time gotta my puffing up the other day the week and we can sit and talk and allies talk ball and it'd be great and we never got to do that batman man. That's a great story but that is too bad. You mentioned k. State a couple of things before you go. I could do this all day by the way but before you go you mentioned case state i think about my guy frank martin who i just adore love this guy so much like frank and he was a longtime loyal assistant to you. He's his own guy. What did you think when you first met frank. And what makes him so different. This was a coach. No leader and a mentor. What explains i. When i was no. I had to go back to west. Virginia and i was trying to get frank to job. I was talking to dr. We followed our our president and the whole thing was. He's never been a college coach. How's he gonna coach. We have you know. Bill walker there and mike beasley coming in and so forth so on how we coach those guys. I said listen. You know why hired frank and they said no. I said i are frank. Because i try to this guys. The only way. I was ever going to get a player from them was hire and and and it wasn't his guys that he got. It was other guys. He got. But i and i said you know frank coached probably seven or eight high level division. One guy's high level division. One guys you think it's easier to keep those guys you think it's easy to be able to substitute. Keep guys skip guys and get guys out not have a rebellion. Because everybody thinks they're the best player you know or that is. I said that's harder than anything i've ever done in coaching and i watched him do it. I watched him do it. And i said i got a higher this guy my staff i heard on my staff and hopefully i know a little bit. More about what you do and they. Fortunately they agreed hired frank and the rest of history had a great career their mouth that roll the ball out. Come to find out all right. So what about this year given given what everybody's playing for you just mentioned it like it's the stakes are so high. You can't even leave the room but to go down to the practice floor. Everybody's trying to be careful. Nobody got to play in the tournament last year. Given how challenging this season was do you sense that it means even more to your guys now than ever before and can you see it in their approach and their preparation. What's their mood like your guys. We're we're all your we've talked about on the pregame mail getting ready to play in the tournament in the conference tournament. And we're sitting out there. Having a just a little impromptu meeting and my athletic director comes down and says all cancelled one. You mean all well. The conference tournaments cancelled the ncaa tournament cancelled and to look at those guys and the look on their faces and the disappointment. And i said you know we need to remember that remember. How disappointed was and no matter what happens in terms of what we're asked to do in in terms of trying to make as safe and and plausible as possible that we need to do it and they've been great they really have. I've got enough returning guys. Remember what it was like so really quickly. You worried about your guys. Some kind of curious about like this overall view of you. You know that whole thirty thousand feet thing. Whatever gonzaga's the top seed understandable their unbeaten. There's a lot to like about them. But you know the narrative if there's one rap against it's the conference play in you play a really rugged conference it really rugged conference. I'd argue that that's going to get ready for the ncaa tournament. Do you think that that is a mark against zag that they don't play in a conference like that. It didn't that hurts them. Come tournament time. Well i i have to hand it to fuel and that he schedules as best they possibly can in the preseason conference and i think he would be the first one to tell you if not a block charge call That went their way. We lose by five. It would have been a one point game and anybody can win. And i know a few we well enough to know. He would've said he's absolutely right. And it was shown over and over and over and over and over on tv. So anybody who watched the game or watched after the game knows that so it's It's kind of a rallying point for us and that our guys know that we had an opportunity to tell you. There's this may variables in our game. I think mark few. I don't care what anybody says. Or what coffee coaches in. This guy can flat out coach. I think the guy's an unbelievable coach who built an unbelievable monster right where he is so finally like. I've heard you'd say so many times says to me like your dad. Doodads a legend but he got out too soon. And i know you're worried about your next game but we get a little older. We think about things. Have you ever thought about like the way you want to go out like. In every in every sport guys almost never get out on their own terms. Do you give that very much. Thought how it ends how you go out when you go out when it's time how will you know when it's time i honestly don't know i honestly don't know and i and again and you know this. I've been blessed. I blessed to be around The greatest coaches wall time with them while they were coaching and then when they had retired and moved on and did other things and i never really got a good answer. Them and i don't have a good answer for you. That's why i keep asking. I kinda applies to my own life like. I don't wanna stop either. I'm like you. i don't wanna stop this still fun. This is so challenging. I still rose me out of bed in the morning. But that's why i keep asking. I'm kind of curious myself. I'll keep asking my answer when it ceases to be fun than than probably both of us. Were also. don't drink. Well we won't. I guess i guess. I'd be lying to say that that wasn't a compliment. I do it.

From the Vault: Lot's Wife: Flesh into Salt

"Hey everybody today's episode is sponsored by the New Mazda C X Thirty you know Robert. This past December when I was out in California for the Mazda things. So I got a chance to try out the X. Thirty on a road trip from palm desert to San, Diego and I was riding along with someone. All you listeners might know miles grave from our cousin podcast the daily, Zeitgeist? Uh so miles and I each took a turn driving through the mountains along the way and we both got. To experience the terrain, the awesome occasionally Olympics Mons like desert landscape, those mountains in southern California really something else is beautiful country but we got to do it as both the driver and the passenger since we traded off in about halfway through, and we also got a great feel for the features that make the Mazda C X thirty really stand out in its class. You can check out the new theory yourself at Mazda. USA Dot com slash IHEART, or see it in person at your local Mazda dealership. It was an unimaginable crime. We can believe something like that. What happened here feed people than all from the same family. Nobody had a clue about who? By eight people, things like that don't happen anywhere. This is the Pike and massacre. Listen to the pet massacre on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Hey, welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb and I'm Joe McCormick and it's Saturday time to go into the old vault. Today we're doing an episode on Lot's wife and the idea of turning an animal in a pillar of salt. This episode originally published on August Twentieth Twenty Nineteen. All right. Let's dive right in. Your mind production iheartradio's house network. Hey look into stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Land and I'm Joe McCormick, and today I didn't think about this until just this moment. But this is another GIO mythology episode isn't it? It ultimately is. Yeah. We are, of course talking about. An often overlooked figure from from. The Old Testament and from. From from Jewish myth and legend We're GONNA be talking about Lot's wife. That's right. The story of Lot's wife is a traditional Jewish story that comes from the Torah is from the book of Genesis Chapter Nineteen. So I guess we should explain the context of the story before we read the relevant passage. Yes, are. So we're in the part of the book of Genesis after God has revealed himself to Abraham, the patriarch of the Jewish religion, and so Abraham now has a relationship with God and we're learning about Abraham and and some of his relatives and one of his relatives is his nephew lot touch right so basically what Happens, is Abraham catches and the three angels are about to smile at the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Yeah. The reasoning is that these cities are very bad and God doesn't like them and their full of wicked people but Abraham tries to reason with God. He says now wait a minute. Are you going to destroy all the good people in the cities along with all the wicked people So he begins to wade into theologically murky waters right by the bad things must happen to the bad people what about the good people in those cities? What should we do about right and he actually is successful in negotiating with God. Argues them down basically because I. It's like, okay. What if they're fifty people? Fifty people in the city would that be enough to spare the city and Gods? Yes. Sure. Yeah. That's okay. You make a good point and he's like, but then Abraham starts hedging right easily I don't know if I can find good people. I. Mean That's that's a lot right but he hasn't begins talking him down what about forty-five? What about forty? ETC ultimately brings it down to a mere ten righteous individuals in the city and and God agrees okay. If you can find ten righteous people, I'll spare these cities and so then a couple of angels are. Sent to the city presumably, I guess to like do some recon to figure it out. Yeah. Yeah. We're dealing with. You know this is the Old Testament. God his powers are at once like more like dramatic and cataclysmic but also requires like foot soldiers to literally go to the town to conduct some surveillance right a little recon. Yeah. There's less of a sense of sort of automatic omniscience more like you know he gets information from beings that work for him right and so he sends these two angels to scope things out to do the count and they visit Abraham's nephew lot. Now, angels are in disguise, of course and Ultimately, ATRO- you've seen a lot of different myths and legends throughout history the idea that the people that are coming to to pay you visit the having a chance encounter with might actually be a divine beings and disguise Yeah I mean this does show up a lot in the Bible in fact, it also shows up later in Christian theology with letting. The parables of Jesus. where he talks about like you know the person who you show a kindness to where you shoot, you do not show a kindness to might have been me, right? Yeah. But then also there are other tales and other traditions that involve like a mysterious stranger who turns out to be a powerful being of some sort of the other and as this tale makes clear. One of the most important ways of being righteous in the ancient world was showing hospitality actually this. Is something that I think is under emphasized in a lot of the morality tales of today you see hugely important in the mythology and religion of the ancient world is like being a good host especially with the story of Lot's wife like growing up I vaguely remember it being brought up in in church from time to time but more more to the point you would see it in like like chick tracts. Yeah. Some sort of you know cartoon that is Ultimately kind of like wallowing and awfulness and and. Using the the story to spinoff a really homophobic. Oh. Yeah. That's weird like I think especially in the twentieth century. Damore story came to be associated with condemnations of homosexuality, which is not really what the what the story in the Bible is focused on, right? Yeah it this is the story about hospitality and as it turns out you know lots lot and his wife are really the only people that are the show any hospitality to these two angels in disguise right they take the angels in host them at their house, and then the story turns fairly horrific like a mob shows up outside the House demanding to rape the angels that are staying there with him and lot tries to offer up his daughters instead to. The mob, the mob does not acquiesce to this, and then the angels instruct lot take his wife and his children and flee the city because the city is going to be destroyed. Yeah. Basically like luck we're not gonNa hit our ten righteous individual quota here but you to seem alright. So you should clear out and so they do they attempt to clear out to flee the city right as it's about to be smited and and and but they warn them like look you cannot turn around. You cannot look back at the city while it is midst might or it's going to be very unpleasant for you. And so they're heading out there fleeing the destruction but then lot's wife either she doesn't listen or she can't help herself but she turns around and looks backward. The the the city is destroyed by the divine fire, and then this turns her into a pillar of salt. Yeah. So I want to read this passage from the King James Translation it goes the sun was risen upon the earth when lot entered into Zohar and that's like another village that they were fleeing to small place. Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah Brimstone and fire from the Lord of Heaven, and he overthrew those cities and all the plane and all the inhabitants of the cities and that. which grew upon the ground, but his wife looked back from behind him and she became a pillar of salt, a pillar of salt. This always this. This is the detail that always captivated me the most it's this strange. It's like an intriguing sad tragic story. It doesn't. You know it doesn't really explain her motives and that's something that a lot of people have been able to read back into with like literature about this story. The one main thing that comes to mind for me is the poem by. The Russian poet and knock Mata called Lot's wife. Do you mind if I read this? Oh, please do This is the translation Stanley Kunitz and Max Hayward it goes and the just man trailed God's shining agent over a black mountain in his giant track while a restless voice kept hurrying his woman it's not too late. You can still look back at the red towers of your native Sodom The square once you sang the spinning shed at the empty windows said in the tall house were sons and daughters. Blessed your marriage bed, a single glance, a sudden dart of pain stitching her eyes before she made a sound her body flaked into transparent salt and our swift legs rooted to the ground who will grieve for this woman does she not seem too insignificant for our concern yet in my heart, I'll never deny her who suffered death because she chose to turn Oh. That's beautiful and sad and captures Ultimately, a lot of the feelings one has when you encounter this this passage where yes, she seems to to. Perish. You know four th th the smallest. Slight. You know all she did is glance backward well yeah, and What I love about this poem is that emphasizes not the external view of the city as this place of wickedness that must be destroyed, but the view of it as her home, you know she's looking back to the place where her home the were that she loved all you know all her good memories are there yeah. Because one of the things it kind of comes back to our discussions about identity and like what makes a person who they are is it internal or is it external and you know if? If, a righteous person was able to live in the city. It stands to reason that the place was not like otherwise completely exotic -Ly Evil Well. Yeah I mean that gives it obviously the character of myth like read like a historical account because you cannot plausibly imagine a city in which everybody except one family is just evil to the core right that's pure mid spinning even though that kind of misspending still goes on today right consider other places and and then and people from other places, etc.. But of course, hasn't stopped numerous You see a lot of efforts especially if you're searching around online people looking for the historical accuracy of Sodom and Gomorrah. In in similar cases from the Old Testament well yeah, I think that's a good thing to note because we're GonNa, be talking about some Geo mythology in today's episode possible connections between between mythology and geological facts about the world. But those those connections are always hypothetical. We can just discuss possible ways that they line up but I just want to say as a note that when you're reading articles about this kind of thing, you always have to be wary and try to separate out like what are the facts that are being reported versus what are the conclusions you're being invited or even explicitly told to draw. From them because they're just all kinds of reports about our logical or geological findings from the ancient Levant with headlines Like Bible Story confirmed you know and then actually when you read okay well, what are the facts that are talking about? It might be something like for example, there was a settlement in the Dead Sea region that was depopulated at some point and therefore this settlement must be the from the Bible and it confirms the Bible. Story is true about the brimstone and the angels and all that Yeah I feel like reads like this they tend to you can completely discredit the power of mythology. Everything has to be considered as a as as a potential one, hundred percent historical reality. Whereas mythology. This thing that you know resides between objective reality and our perception it is this I mean, but it's it's not just mere moment stuff like mythology. Essentially the skeletal system on which we we build ourselves, and our culture will an important part of culture I think is is. Conceiving of mythology is perhaps true without being factual. Maybe meaning it somehow contains wisdom but it's not like an accurate description of things that happened and the emphasis on like people. This must be an accurate description of things that happen. First of all. It's such a confused way of looking at archaeology I I. Don't think we can even be confident that the people originally telling stories like the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and lot's wife in the pillar of salt meant for the stories to be taken as literal fact maybe they did. But I'm not so sure they meant that right because as we've said, plenty of times before we don't want it to discredit the creative abilities of ancient peoples and we also want to discredit like things like dreams or certainly in cultures where there was some sort of a tradition of WHO's NATORI or psychedelic substance use that could have been a factor as well like there there are. There are various ways that one can acquire of. The elements of these stories, and then of course, there build upon them through. The oral tradition. Yeah, exactly. But I mean even even if you think about sometimes myths just being stories that people made up for a reason, the reason might have been something like to convey a point to explain the origin of something to infant some kind of moral value that you wanted people to take away. This story is kind of a jumble of things that are morally absolutely horrific to us today. But also like in there, there is some stuff about the that's worth thinking about about hospitality about like people in in protecting them under your roof. But yeah. So it just gets so weird when we modern people look at like scientific evidence, then we say. It confirms the story from Mythology is true. It's like it's an impulse that leads to bad reasoning and over interpretation of little bits of physical evidence. But I think it also most of the time just completely misses the point of the story right and then you end up kind of like busting your own myth right kind of L- like by by. So you know vehemently attempting to connect mythology with objective reality. It more often than not it just it feels fake. It feels like you're trying too hard to make this magical unreality real and doing. So you just make it feel like it's just made up stuff. Yeah. Totally. Should we take a break and then come back and talk about what kind of myth this might be let's do it.

We're back here on this obstacle your mind we are talking about lot's wife. Looking for. Looking, this is a story of Geo. Mythology and later we'll even get into a little bit of chemistry. All right. So there's the question of what kind of myth. This is the idea that lot's wife turned and looked back at her home and then turned into a pillar of salt. A lot of the myths from the ancient Near East actually from all over the world I think can can be interpreted as origin myths also known as etiological myths. We've talked about this on the. Show before but this means that they explain the beginning or the cause of something, and there are a lot of different forms. This can take one of the most common kinds of ideological myths is the myth that explains the name used for something. Ancient people usually didn't have the tools to study etymology and understand the origins of words and names that passed down through the culture. So a lot of etiological myths I think are built around false cognate words that sound similar but aren't actually. Related, and this would be like if I said the capital, why is the capital of the United States called Washington? Well, once there was a man who lived there and he washed himself in the Potomac River all the time pretty washed himself so much that he the they would walk by and they would say there's old Washington washing himself in a way that never ceases and that's where the town gets its name. Obviously that would be untrue but that's that's kind of like A. Name. Based Ideological Myth got a lot of other etiological myths I think explain the origins of cultural practices or rituals. So why do we cut a branch of Mistletoe and bring to bowls on the solstice to do this ritual? Well, it's because once the God thor was standing under some mistletoe and it felt like so they come up with something that weaves together all of these practices or elements of ceremony that you don't remember the actual origins of because it's been passed down for generations. And These would be the kind of stories that would give your everyday rituals and even just every day sort of vaguely ritualized activities meaning because you are embodying some sort of mythic Motif, right you're recreating the actions of the Gods when you do this thing now, and so a similar thing happens for natural phenomena and natural objects. Why do we have thunder and lightning? It's because of a storm God throwing angry bolts of lightening. Fighting a war in the heavens, why do we have four seasons and we can't grow crops in the winter? Well, because in the fall and winter perception has to live in Haiti and her mother demeanor, the goddess of the. Harvest, she mourns her absense won't allow crops to grow, but then the spring summer for seventy can come up again and demanded rejoices and nourishes our crops, and there are also versions of these natural ideologies just for objects in the world. When you you know there will sometimes be a myth explaining the existence of a mountain or of a giant crater or something like that. Yeah. We've just got some of these on the show before like ideas of basically topography being formed from the say the body is a fallen gods and like, yeah, and so could the story of Lot's wife be a myth like this existing to explain the origin of something We don't know but I do think it's possible and so I want to look at a passage from. Josephus. The first century Jewish historian he wrote about the story of Lot's wife in his work known as the antiquities of the Jews, and this is from Book One Chapter Eleven translated by William Weston, and it starts talking about the wickedness of the people who lived in autumn saying that lot fled the city with his wife and daughters and then Josephus writes. God, then cast a thunderbolt upon the city and set it on fire with its inhabitants and laid waste the country with the like burning as I formerly said when I wrote the Jewish war. But Lot's wife continually turning back to view the city as she went from it and being too nicely inquisitive. What would become of it although God had forbidden her so to do was changed into a pillar of salt for I have seen it and it remains at this. Day. Lot's wife confirmed it. Yes. Exactly. Bible Story. Confirmed that's Joseph. Headline but I mean Whoa that's interesting. So Josephus in the first century C E is saying that he personally saw lot's wife frozen in time as a pillar of salt hundreds of years after the events of this myth allegedly took place now I think we can assume that Josephus, probably wasn't lying about. Having seen something here that something that he thought was lot's wife. But at the same time I think we can probably safely assume that whatever he saw was not actually a human woman who got turned into sodium chloride. So what could he be talking about? Well, the obvious answer would be not an actual woman that was turned into saw something that looks like. They they humanoid figure something that looks like it could be interpreted as such right we need to start by stipulating again that we don't know we don't know the answer to this. But if we want to examine impossibilities, we can look at modern analogies. Now today there are at least two different things I've found that regularly get called Lot's wife and these strange geological formations or pillars in the. Area of the Dead Sea one is an odd looking rock pillar standing on a cliff top that overlooks the Dead Sea on the Jordan side, which is over on the eastern side, and it does have an eerily human posture it. It looks like some local tourism concerns advertise this as lot's wife and I I couldn't figure out how long people have been referring to this particular formation is lot's wife. Today, and for some years now they've been calling it I. It does look creepy. Yeah. I'd love to hear from some of our listeners who have visited. The area reside in the area can weigh in on just what was your experience looking at this thing that is referred to as lot's wife there is a there's a kind of agony, the posture of the mineral. I. It does it's got some pesos to it. You can see it I can see okay. I I like the Achmad of a poem almost out of this rock pillar. Another thing that is often called. Lot's wife is a geological formation on the opposite side of the Dead Sea on the west side on a hilltop now known as Mount Sodom. This formation also called Lot's wife is kind of funny when you actually see people approach it like I watched a video of some tourists just taking video of themselves going up to see lot's wife, and this one is funny because it's less suggestive of human posture and shape than the formation on the Jordan side and because it's gigantic if it were lot's wife Lot's wife was huge. And I should also point out that like sub subsequent geologic formations, and other parts of the world have been dubbed. Lot's wife merely because they sort of vaguely resemble humanoid form right and I, think that's I. Mean that's what's happening in all these cases. Yes. Like he kind of looks like a person let and then we have this myth of a person having. Turn to to or to some stone like substance in that is like the natural thing to call it right now, Mount Sodom is interesting because it is actually almost entirely made of salt. It's like more than eighty percent sold with few layers of other strategies got things like limestone and it hosts a gigantic salt cave that is miles long, but there is no evidence. Whatsoever that either of these formations were once a human, they appear to be fairly normal mineral columns. Boat One could pretty easily imagine one of two scenarios you've either got the myth already existing independently and somebody who had both read the story and seeing the geological features put to into together and then people like, Josephus, come along and hear from those people and say look. This is lot's wife and why would you question it? Yeah. It's kind of like the whole mermaid scenario. Did you know to what extent to someone see a manatee and think Oh it's a mermaid or associated with Mermaid's tale The tail of the Mermaid or is it the the reverse right? Where someone sees manatees into make sense that they create a story of Mermaids? Second part is the option I was gonNA, say, the the actual Gio mythology inspiration maybe some tribe in the ancient Dead Sea region was aware of either one of these geological formations or another one like it that doesn't exist anymore that is not identified the same way now maybe eroded but anyway, they were aware of some kind of geological formation that looks kind of like a human and then a great storyteller comes along to come up with a tale of how that person was crystallized in place there, and that's why you're always the hospitable to visitors. Well, mythologies are interesting that way because they're often they're often a woven together. Top story of pre existing streams of storytelling tradition I can absolutely see the possibility of how like a story that was once about showing hospitality to agents of the Lord were just showing hospitality in general got woven together with like somebody just stuck in Etiological myth into part of it. When we even see this, of course, with the evolution of of modern tales that are told, you know where they'll be one version of it. They just look at our comic book characters, right the evolution of some of them from characters of pure exploitation to characters that are being used to you know discuss some sort of a socially relevant topic. So, stories of all, that's that's the essential to the human experience, and of course, we see that mythology as well we always have to remember that the myths it even though they're often encountered in some stationary form recorded in a book that at least presented to you as if it has not changed over the course of Millennia. It is still thing that is the story itself is something that is fluid and will have changed through time and through telling yes and as for a single ideological element being inserted into a story that already exists you can see that in storytelling today about how common it is for there to be like a historical story, the forrest Gump, movie forrest Gump, how many things are there in that story where you could have the story be pretty much exactly the same without except they inserted a little thing where like forrest gump invented the have a nice day slogan t-shirt should Smiley face or the? Things like that in the movie where they just insert a little fake aetiology to say, Oh, and by the way, remember this thing from history forrest gump at that. Oh, I forgot about that. The myth making a forrest Gump I don't know why people like things like that so much. But they clearly do because it's in a lot of stories and movies to just have a little thing that people recognize from the real world and say, Hey, this fictional character, they're actually the reason that's that way i. feel like stuff has been films that do that with the leaning Tower of Pisa. We're character bumps into it, and it makes it crooked or something to that effect totally superman movie to have been awhile. Maybe Superman like fixes il he fixes that it makes people. Mad. It always that in Superman movies superman is protecting monuments from destruction. I remember that especially being the case in Superman for where like great monuments are under attack by the villains super ran has to prevent them from being destroyed. Yes. Should be they're the people that matter, right? Yeah. But Anyway, I wanted to say something else about possible geological explanations for mythology like this another thing has to do with salt formations around. High Salinity bodies of water, and of course, they've famously salty body of water in the vicinity here. Yeah. That's right the Dead Sea of course, which is not which is not an ocean. By the way the Dead Sea is is a hyper saline lake. It is like a super salty locked up lake. The water of the Dead Sea is fascinating. It is so salty that no large life forms dwell there no fish no No no insects live in there and no plants live in there. There are some micro organisms that live around Vince and stuff near the bottom of it. Right. In certain areas you'll find a human tourists floating in it right and that's rather easily. Yes. That's one of the fascinating things about the water there because it's so sailing I guess the density of the water is so much higher than normal they say it's almost. Like you can just sit on the water. You know it's really hard to sink you float. So easily most ocean water is about three point five percent sultan solution. The Dead Sea is something like five to ten times as Brian is normal ocean water. Yeah. Yeah. We're talking super salty like the kind of similar salinity of course, winning encounters in saltwater isolation tanks, tanks you know where you're you're floating in. This highly salty water that almost takes like viscous consistent consistency you. Yeah. A, little growth for the first time you gave it takes some getting used to well, you might wonder why is the Dead Sea? So salty the answer is the Dead Sea does not have a natural outlet. There's nowhere for the water of the Dead Sea to drain out to and part of the reason for this. Is that the bottom of the Dead Sea. Is More than fourteen hundred feet below sea level and the base in it sits in is just generally one of the lowest elevations of any Land Area Earth, depending on where you're measuring. It is sometimes cited as the lowest land elevation on the planet. So if you're the lowest elevation, where could the water drain to their if there's nothing downhill from it and? So while it doesn't have a outlet, it doesn't natural source, which is the Jordan River. So the Jordan River feeds into the Dead Sea occasionally of course says you know freshwater comes through as tiny of dissolved salt and mineral stuff that it carries with it the water in the Dead Sea just stays there doesn't drain away it stays there until it evaporates. But of course, this is an extremely hot and dry desert climate. So evaporation is extremely aggressive, but that evaporation removes water without removing the salt and then with anthropogenic changes to the flow of the Jordan River the. Dead, sea now gets less water fed into it ever the than ever before, and it's shrinking rapidly that the water level has been falling at a rate of something like three feet or about a meter a year, which is fast but with this much salt dissolved in the water, the water can leave deposits of crystallized salt around its edges. In fact, if you walk around the shores of the Dead Sea, you will find strange sparkling domes and piles of salt crystals collecting on rocks due to wave action and evaporation. Yeah. In many of these are just really there are really. To behold. Strange looking formations, which makes one think well, perhaps some formation like this could have caught the eye of someone in the past and either you would have been the exactly sort of thing would incorporate into a myth or would serve to spin off a new math exactly. Yes. Salt crystals like these. They can take on extremely bizarre shapes sometimes they crystallize over a vertical rock column or maybe over an old. Tree trunk or posts driven into the ground or something anything that has a sort of vertical form. You can see how pretty easily heavy crystallization of salt on the outside of it could start to take on human looking form, and there's also I would just say something about the the nature and shapes of salt crystals that naturally draws the I like it looks unusual in the landscape it looks kind of. Alive Some of the the salt crystals can form these large cubes and stuff take on angles that don't look natural. Yeah. There's there's a geometric quality to it. Yeah. the the generally seems out of keeping with the surrounding environment. So what was Josephus looking at when he said he saw lot's wife in person well, we don't know for sure and we don't know if whatever he saw was actually. The inspiration for the story in the first place. But if it were I, think it would be in keeping with many other ideological tales in the Bible and inhuman mythology. Absolutely. Well, on that note I think we should take one more break and when we come back, let's talk a little bit about salt salt in the human body and a really fabulous paper that we ran across that really breaks down. And Women could be transformed into a pillar of salt or a salt like substance everybody.

So lately, we've been trying to do our part to be cautious and do what we can for public health. So we've been cooped up in the house a lot not getting out a lot Robert. Is there anything you miss about the about the road trip or going on long drives? You have to say there is something really cool about having a long drive. Hopefully, you know like in driving through the mountains or something and you get to really dive into a particular. Really experience it beginning to end while taking in the scenery also a great time for the children to learn about metal machine music. So. When Miles Gray and I drove the Mazda C X thirty from Palm Desert San Diego I really enjoyed the scenery along the way I feel like the car itself helped a lot with that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call an essential EST approach. So well, it's got a lot of features like in car WIFI vehicle status navigation displays etc. It really doesn't feel crammed with distracting lights and visual. Decoy and speaking features six thirty also has a really good factory sound system. They loaded the car up with some high definition sample tracks for us to try We listen to Daft punk and great. Hey, for everybody else if you want more information on Mazda and the first ever Mazda C X Thirty, you can find it online at Mazda USA dot com slash Iheart, or better yet. See It in person at a Mazda dealership near you. Right we're back. So one way that I would often that I would often think about the story as a as I would think, okay, a person being turned into just salt at doesn't make a lot of sense you know because solid salt is, of course, is salt comes from somewhere like how do you replace all of us salt? Certainly, our bodies contain salt how much salt desire body it does our body do our bodies contain well, let's let's let's breakdown the this a little bit. So first of all saw his obviously sodium and chlorine. Aim, we need sodium for example, as it's a key extra cellular electrolyte and it's crucial to a number of health functions right now for the for the most part, we consume way too much salt today. Though the minimum consumption is roughly dad. Fifteen hundred milligrams a day while the American Heart Association says the absolute minimum is more like five hundred milligrams a day and the average American consumes something like thirty, four, hundred milligrams of sodium per day those amateur numbers. also according to the Salt Association chlorine is also important preserving acid balance in the body aiding potassium absorption. It also contributes to the hydrochloric acid in our and it enhances the blood's ability to transport carbon dioxide. and so all of this breaks down to like is a rough average. An adult human body contains two hundred and fifty grams of salt and any excess is naturally excreted by the body. Now, we we've talked about excretion of excess salt in a past episode of stuff to blow your mind where we discussed drinking salt water. So I recommend to anyone who would like even more salt after this episode, right? So if lot's wife you know wasn't so much turn into a pillar of salt if we were going to say, okay what if the magic rays of the the the? Taking place. What have we just reduced her to her body salt? Content. Like just a holy ray the destroys everything except salt how much salt would be left be about two hundred and fifty grams of salt. That's roughly what one point two, four cups we got our cup and a quarter of salt in our bodies. Well, I mean, it's impressive when you think about it in those terms I guess. But in terms of like a person being reduced to that you know it's not it's not really a pillar of salt they would have to say, and then she turned back and was reduced to a small amount of salt man I love thinking about the stuff in human bodies in measuring quantities used for cooking. Because according to the Harvard health that's less than nine ounces in about the amount in three or four. Salt Shakers. Waiting, to the Salt Shaker little bit of dry rice in them I duNno. If it's necessary in such an environment so that that's one place. My mind went in terms of trying to figure out what's what's happening now obviously, your mind also turns to, of course, fossil ization like fossils Asian is a very real process by which a living body is turned into a solid mineral form. But of course, that's not GonNa occur in an instant. It's something that takes place over the course of geologic time. likewise thinking okay. Essentially, what we're talking about is are a pair of nuclear blast taking place that have been unleashed by and Djelic forces. Okay. Might might that the might the the flash of this my theory, the radiation from this have incinerated the body. Reduced to ash well, you know that's one way of looking at it, but it wouldn't produce like a call I like a statue of Ash. It would just obliterate a body Nathan was turning a dash and then of course, one thinks two mummies. But of course, Missouri are just examples of body that has been when which the the fluid has been removed. And likewise, there a number of different Preservation models for the human body where you're you're adding something replacing something but none of these are prophecies that are to take place in an instant. There are forms of natural mummification that took place We often think that natural mummification in some cultures preceded deliberate modification, but you wouldn't normally think of that as like something that somebody would look at a mummy and say they turned. To salt now you could. You could play it kinda crazy jigsaw different natural effects if anything goes right. What if there was some kind of natural mummy of a woman in the Dead Sea region that suddenly like because I know a storm or something blue all this salt crystal honor and then it covered her body and salted she glistened all over and people said look there's the salt. Woman. Yeah. I you know it's one of those. Ultimately, a lot of steps are required to get to the place you want to go. Right. So I kept looking around about this like somebody's out there there has been a scientist. A pure sire is decided to tackle this kind of a thought experiment. One of these great playful chemistry papers like the like what are the thermodynamics of Hell and all that right or one another favor that I have more of a biology paper is like how it has centaurs body were. Across that one where the authors argued that a Centaur would acquire two hearts in order to power this thing conjoined System so I I was lucky enough to find just such a paper on Lot's wife titled the Chemical Death Of Lot's wife discussion paper. This was published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine in July of one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. It was by Irving M Klotz a PhD Department of Chemistry Northwestern University. And I, won a note here that that clots was not some like weird quack writing a bunch of Biblical papers which I think should be obvious given the details of not only you know his his employment, but also the publication, but I should stress during his lifetime. He authored more than two hundred scientific articles in peer reviewed journals, and he also wrote numerous books including one titled Diamond Dealers Feather Merchants Tales from the sciences, which sounds sounds quite good. I mean the hunt up a copy of it. So anyway, he's. I feel like he's very much engaging on a thought experiment here but his his science cred is is ultimately above reproach. Okay. But so he's GonNa take this from like biochemistry point of view and say, all right. If a person was turned into salt, how would that work that mean exactly. So First of all, he reminds us that we shouldn't take salt to literally rather he says, it's likely you know used in a generic sense to refer to any solid with mineral characteristics to it, and perhaps a salt lake taste. So he's not necessarily talking about sodium chloride, but he says that in the Bible, if they said Salt, they probably meant just any kind of crystalline mineral. A lot of things taste salting and he uses the point of comparison to the way. The Bible uses the word plague yet to refer to basically anything you. Know anything that's like an epidemic. So he rides quote particularly likely candidate for the salt that caused the death of Ms. Lot is cal site. This mineral is very susceptible to precipitation in the presence of low concentrations of free calcium and carbonate, both of which are present ubiquitously in all human tissues, and there he's talking about calcium ions. Yes and carbonate ions. So what must have happened he argues is something something occurred to overwhelm the Homeo- static systems that maintain calcium carbonate levels below critical values thus leading to the onset of cal site formation. In, this would have been due to some sort of catastrophic stress. And so what could could have caused this to happen will plots looks to the text and considered that they were running from a powerful firestorm. Outward from the from the site of destruction and that as she stops and looks back perhaps she's then hit by a powerful blast of hot air with high co two content along with heat and radiation. So it would be the the hot air coming in with the pressure in the Co two in the chemical properties of the Co two content and would affect the Ph of the blood and the body, and then the heat and radiation. Now, I think I understand from his analysis that it doesn't actually matter that she's looking back at the city. He's saying maybe it's just that she stopped running away. She stopped and looked back or perhaps kept stopping and looking back. So it's not about like your eyes beholding the thing right so it's not the Josephus you remember Josephus says the problem is that she thought to kindly of Sodom right and she should have been I guess colder in her in her condemnation of it right this. Basically, this are clots is argument is that she's still in the danger. Zone from a terrific blast that's taking place. Okay. So klotz goes on from here to do a lot of chemical analysis on how all this would break down and I'm not gonNA attempt to summarize that here If you're if you're a more of a chemistry Wiz, I suggest looking up this paper is available for Free Online in pdf form but I'm going to skip ahead to his final summary. Thus. By turning around in her direction of flight misled exposed herself instantly to stresses the generated immediate enormous escalations in concentrations of calcium carbonate so that the critical limit specified by equation six, which was something he he covered earlier in the paper were exceeded overwhelmingly and instantaneously internal massive pervasive crystallization of cal side followed immediately. Lot died instantly of rigor calcium carbonate, ass-, and turned into a rigid block of cal site since the prevailing winds from the Dead Sea always carry along a spray of salt which accumulated on this pillar succeeding generations to modern times have testified that this column is a block of salt. Okay. So he he lays out a process by which in the presence of certain chemical pressure is and you know high pressure and temperature from this blast the. Body could conceivably undergo rapid crystallization of its calcium content because like the some of the calcium containing compounds in the body like the albumin, he refers to like those get D- nature cal calcium gets free to joins up with the carbonate you get rapid crystallization and you get a cal site body is pretty creepy. Yeah it is. It's tremendously via I. Don't know if he makes the case really the this could happen in reality. One thing I wasn't. Quite clear on whether he's just saying like, okay. What's the most plausible possible like chain of of chemical things here leading to the crystallization of the body like this or if he's actually saying Oh yeah. Given the right circumstances this could happen to a human body. Yeah. Yeah. It's It's it's a play article I feel but it's not it doesn't have an obvious like wink moment it. You know it's it's very You know it's IT'S Very professional this delivery I feel like modern papers of this This variety would tend to have a few more winks toward the fact that it is a thought experiment. If not outright saying here's a thought experiment and he's a little more I guess since he's a little more playful with how he's framing it. Okay. But but yeah, I love this this idea of the chemical death of Miss Slot. And he always refers to her as Miss Lott. Instead. Of Just Lot's wife in the paper. Yeah. So again, not. Not a situation where where this paper is confirming a biblical account. Bible story confirmed rapid crystallization of calcified in the blood by, but it is. It is another one of examples of like, what's a? What's a completely outrageous scenario from you know from myth and then and then trying to sort of recreate it to reverse engineer using science and it's fascinating how sometimes you? Can. You can just recreate how something like that could occur and it makes me WanNa see more cal site death rays in our science fiction. This has been interesting. Robert Yeah Yeah I had a lot of fun researching and reading about Lot's wife I'm also reminded how in our Scott, Baker's second apocalypse saga. He has a bit about Wizards that come into contact with a particular substance. It causes their bodies to essentially turn into a pillar of salt and then it's It's hinted that that's salt can be used for for other purposes.

Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer with iheartradio and love all things tech and way back in two thousand fourteen I did an episode titled Texts Stuff twitches about the video streaming service catering primarily to gamers culled twitch dot TV. But it's time for an update as since that time has happened and this year we've seen some big names on twitch, leave a couple of them return one of them got banned for some reason. So today I thought we'd really dive into the topic and learn more about twitch, go into a deeper dive than our previous episode. Learn how a select percentage of users have become millionaires and what's going on with all this moving around or as I like to call it the old which a rue. So before there was twitch, there was Justin DOT TV founded by Justin Conn. now way back in two thousand five, which would be the same year that Youtube would launch con was working on an interesting experiment in his copious spare time as he was also pursuing degrees in physics and psychology at Yale. So clearly, he's a bit of a busybody he had already launched a business called ky-ko software, which was an online calendar program. But that business wasn't really a moneymaker and so conduct di sensible thing auctioned off on Ebay for reels that brought in a quarter of a million dollars. His next attempt grew out of a project at Y combinator. This company is start up accelerator, which essentially means it serves to provide seed money to start up ventures in an effort to get them up and running enough so that they can then seek out more substantial investors and it's played a big part in getting some pretty influential companies. started like door Dash AIRBNB INSTA- car and guess twitch in the form of Justin TV now Justin. Devi was a totally different beast from Kiko Software Khan and a small team of developers wanted to create a tool that would allow them to stream live video over the Internet and create something like a reality television stream big brother style originally with a camera that was strapped to a baseball cap that Khan would wear. So you get sort of a first person perspective slightly taller than the con himself. Perhaps. It was a bit self centered but the idea of life streaming was just starting to take off. You know the idea of actually video streaming your life, and it was doing that because the technology you would need do such a thing was coming into maturation webcams were becoming more affordable, and in the United States, we were seeing some movement at least in large markets of broadband connectivity rolling out, and it took a couple of years to. To build out the service but Justin Devi would launch in two thousand seven that launch wasn't exactly a homerun right away people were intrigued by the idea of it, but the reality show broadcasting thing just wasn't winning over very many people Khan and his team were receiving a lot of messages saying that users would like to be able to use the service in stream their own content online just watch what they were being provided. So at the time. Justin TV was you know mostly about Justin and his friends people were less interested in that and it took a while but eventually, the company changed its focus for being a source of video streamed content to being a platform for video streaming content allowing users to create accounts and channels to stream their own stuff to whoever wanted to watch. One thing. A lot of folks wanted to broadcast would be video game play sessions. Now, this is not. That surprising for people who aren't into video games I. Get that. This sounds strange. The idea of watching someone else play a game I mean after all aren't games meant to be played. Why would you watch it to that? I would say not all of you play football or baseball or soccer but a lot of you watch it and it's the same sort of thing. It's this idea of you've find enjoyment in watching people who are really good. At performing that particular sport and enjoying the feeling you get when you see them do well or see a team you support beat out another team. So, this is really not that surprising to me, and I'm also you got to keep in mind. I say this a lot because Lauren's not on the show anymore say for me I'm old so I remember the classic. Of the video game arcade where you would wander among cabinets for games like elevator action or spy hunter, and while you would spend time playing games, you'd also spend a lot of time watching other people play either because you're waiting for your own turn at that particular game or the person was just really Dang good at playing that game and you're just watching because you were impressed I one afternoon at a gold mine arcade where I stood for nearly twenty minutes watching a kid play through all of Dragon's lair, which was a a laser discs based gain that featured full hand-drawn animation. So while games were really made. For playing lots of folks just really enjoyed watching them but streaming video games presented other challenges twitch was set up to stream from a camera source like a Webcam streaming from another video source like video game let alone allowing for arrangements like a webcam picture overlaid on part of that video source just wasn't supported natively. Folks were Jerry rigging systems to kind of make it happen the team had Justin, TV considered it emergent behavior and so Khan and his team hired on specialists who could help video game streamers set up their systems to allow for that kind of thing to stream content from video game onto the service. Need to rely on third party software in those early days, and for the most part today, they still do several different developers had. Available and one early one that remains popular to this day is open broadcasting software or OB s these programs typically operate as a full. And Broadcasting. Service allows users to set up stuff like the audio levels for their video stream incorporating a microphone, and thus you can set the audio levels for your mic in comparison to the video game. Obviously want her mike to be slightly louder than the video game. So people can hear you over the sounds of the game, the support for things like. Web Cams and transitions and video effects and more, and for years this was really the only way. Streamers could work with streaming services and it wasn't always a user friendly or intuitive experience getting started could be a little bit intimidating as there were lots of settings to manage but the determined gamers who wanted to stream found ways to make it work as the. Various types of broadcasting software evolved and improved and added features over time between two thousand seven would justin TV launched and two thousand eleven when it would spin off twitch dot TV video game streaming really began to come into its own. There was a particular focus on E. Sports that is on games that had an elite level of competitors who could play against. Each Other informal organized tournaments often with significant cash prizes for the winners players could make their own twitch channels and people can watch as these players would practice their strat in their skills, honing their techniques while training for the next tournament, and maybe that sounds weird to those of you who don't gain but really is a show of how play at that level. Is Truly incredible I. Mean these these players can see faster than I can't they will see details. At, act on them faster than I can even register what is happening. It's phenomenal to me image shear who served as the chief technology officer of Justin TV. saw that this trend was going and he worked really hard to add more support for video games streaming Ashir sheer himself had been competitive starcraft two player and he really recognized what was going on. So as the team developed more features to help gamers back on just TV, it became clear that what was really needed was a separate streaming platform gaming with starting to dominate the streams over Justin TV, it was actually hard to find the other stuff there. So the team decided that the right thing to do would be the. Spin, off a separate streaming service specifically intended to support video game streaming from the get-go and in two thousand eleven. That's all twitch DOT TV was born. It was done to allow some of the stuff on Justin TV a little more breathing room because it was just getting avalanched by this video game content in July two thousand eleven one month after the service had launched twitch was ready to announce the launch of its partner program. The partner program represented a professional level of streamer someone who could actually make money off of streaming their video game play whereas most people couldn't really do that directly through twitch at that time if you were a stream and you wanted to make money. You had few options available to you in those days as the partner program had some really high requirements in those early days keeping in mind. This is when the service was less than a year old. So to qualify a twitch streamer had to have either five hundred minimum concurrent viewers on average three hundred thousand Channel News and at least one thousand followers or you can meet one of three other tougher requirements you can have. An average of at least one thousand viewers. At any given time, you could have a minimum of eight hundred thousand channel views or at least four thousand followers. Now, over time what was required to be considered for you to make the status of partner would change and at times became less obvious to the average person twitch partners could earn a share of revenue that was generated on their streams. So twitches revenue model was largely on. Advertising New as video ads that would run a pre roll in channels or sometimes, and overlay add or sometimes even a mid roll ad and that was typically held twitch was making its money as revenue generation kind of strategy twitch dot TV would handle all the ad sales arrangements and partners would get a percentage of all the revenue generated on their channel on a monthly basis. So a month you would get paid out the more folks who are watching ads on your stream. The more money you would make that month partners would also get access to new twitch tools and features before the rest of twits users wet. So if you're streaming on twitchy or not a partner, then you might see. Partner streamers using tools that were not available to you and. It sometimes can seem a little unfair at the same time the people who are making partner. They were kind of acting almost as power Beta testers for these different twitch tools and finding ways of making them really useful, and then those tools might later be rolled out to a larger group of users not some point though I couldn't find exactly when I couldn't fight definitive source that that really laid this out twitch partners also got the ability to offer subscriptions to followers now onto which you can follow an account for free, you can sort of. Hit a little follow thing, and that makes it easier for you to see when your favorite streamers are active whenever you log into twitch, you would see it maybe on the landing page. So it made it much simpler. Subscriptions are a way for users to actually support the streamers they like to watch financially. So when they do that subscribers get access to if you bells and whistles which mostly play out in the chat room for those subscribed channels. So as scrubber might have a particular badge next to their user handle to designate that they are at a certain level of subscription for that particular streamer or they might have access to a collection of special boat commands that the average person doesn't have. The original subscription fee in the United States was four dollars ninety nine cents per month twitch took about half of that technically just less than half two dollars, forty nine cents and the streamer would get the other two dollars and fifty cents of each of those subscriptions per month and eventually twitch would increase the options to. Also to other levels of subscriptions he still had the four dollars ninety nine cents per month as the base level, but users could opt to subscribe at nine dollars ninety nine cents a month or twenty four dollars ninety nine cents per month. At those higher levels users would get access to additional emotes and bells and whistles. So it's not like it was an enormous change in their experience, but they would have the knowledge that they were giving more support to those particular streamers in addition, partners would get access to more emotes slots as they racked up more subscribers. So it incentivized partners to try and get that number up not just for the money but to create more reasons to convince people to join and become subscribers, it was a sort of a feedback loop but again, this was all originally restricted to official twitch partners which represented a tiny percentage of the overall streamers on the platform so. If, you wanted to make money off your streaming, but you did not meet twitches requirements. You're only other options were to find ways to benefit indirectly from your streaming such as by offering merchandise or setting up an affiliate program through an online store. So you would provide a special link to your viewers and you'd say if you want to buy this chair that I have the same kind of chair, then follow this link and you can buy it there, and then the streamer gets a certain amount of money from every purchase made through that specific link. It's a little kickback to the streamer and all this is on the up Inaba I mean this is. Always there were supposed to be you're supposed to communicate that to the viewers saying you use this. Then you help support the channel I get a little bit every time you guys get it, and then you get the thing that you wanted in the first place and no extra cost to you You could also try and get sponsorships from various companies. There are a couple of other ways that you can monetize your your streaming even if you are a partner, but it always requires a lot of hustle the twitch management team held a couple of different rounds of investment funding one in two, thousand, twelve, and another in two, thousand, thirteen, and together those. Two rounds brought in about thirty five, million dollars of investment, and this is one of those instances where if you could travel through time, you might join those investors that there's what we call foreshadowing. Interesting side note while twitch dot TV would go onto become monumentally successful and profitable Justin TV didn't fare quite as well in February two thousand, fourteen, the parent company that was just in TV that oversaw both the Justin TV service and twitch TV rebranded as twitch. So the SPINOFF has now become the master and in August that year just TV shut down entirely, it had become clear. The video game streaming was the winner here the more generic life streaming service. was just not taking off at a level where it it merited the amount of attention that was required to run it. So they cut their losses, they shut it down and they really focused on twitch also back in February two, thousand fourteen was the birth of a great social experiment called twitch plays, pokemon. So pokemon in case you're not familiar is a game series where you play as polk Amman trainer and poke Amman short for pocket monsters. So you go around collecting and training monsters to do battle on your behalf against. Monsters, anyway, not not important. This twitch channel created and experiment in which viewers could influence what happened in a specific poke Amman game called. Amman read a bought was playing the game and the viewers could type in commands in the video streams chat to make the but do stuff, and because the game is turn based, the body would wait for the next input and then. Act on it as you might imagine, this quickly resulted in true chaos as people discovered, the channel users would flood the chat with commands in an attempt to to be the one to guide the POKEMON playing bought to do a specific action or sometimes just to cause trouble. So within a month, the experiment had grown large enough that the Charles administrators changed things up a little. Bit. They switched from a yell commands at the MoD to vote for anarchy or democracy anarchy was the old style of play in which a would take all the commands in the order that they were received and then execute on them in turn and that resulted in a lot of chaos. Sometimes, it meant you would spend hours watching the bought navigate the same menu due to. All the different inputs it had received democracy took a different approach. The bought would pause between actions and players could vote on what happened next they would have about twenty seconds to cast their vote. Then the bought would look at all the votes in whichever one it would perform that action. Now, I could do a whole episode about the twitch plays pokemon experiment, the interesting stuff. Doesn't have that much to do with the game or its mechanics instead had a lot to do with how people find ways to game systems and effort to achieve specific goals. If you look at the experiment as a whole, you start to see stuff that might remind you of novels like Lord of the flies or animal farm but maybe that's best safer different types of podcasts. The technical stuff was really justed enabler anyway twitch plays pokemon really got the streaming service, a lot of attention and who boy did that payoff twitches performance was gaining attention and it would soon lead to a couple of big fish in the tech world to explore acquisition opportunities I'll explain more after we take this quick break. Hey everybody today's episode is sponsored by the new Mazda C X thirty. So lately, we've been trying to do our part to be cautious and do what we can for public health. So we've been cooped up in the house a lot not a getting out a lot Robert his thirty thing you Kinda miss about the about the road trip or go on on long drives. Why do you have to say there's there is something really cool about having a long drive hopefully. Driving through the mountains or something, and you get to really dive into a particular album just really experience it beginning to end while taking in the scenery also a great time for the children to learn about metal machine music. So when miles gray and I drove the Mazda C X, thirty from Palm Desert to San. Diego. I really enjoyed the scenery along the way and I feel like the car itself helped a lot with that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call in a centralist approach. So well, it's got a lot of features like Car Wifi? Vehicle status, navigation displays, etc. It really doesn't feel crammed with distracting lights and visual decoy. And speaking of features six thirty also has a really good factory soundsystem. They loaded the car up with some high definition sample tracks for us to try like we listen to Daft punk and that sounded great. Hey, for everybody else if you want more information on Mazda and the first ever Mazda C X Thirty, you can find it online at Mazda USA dot com slash iheart or better yet. See It in person at a Mazda dealership near you. Von Edge has everything you could ever want in life as long as what you want in life, our unified communications that organize all your texts. Voice calls onto one platform context centers that integrate seamlessly with salesforce and API's that help developers build communications into their APPS. But that's it. Those are the things that is great at they're not great at baking delicious cakes or doing sweet backflips or making extremely entertaining yet informative podcasts that make you feel smarter and more inspired none of those are really their thing but you know what? That's okay. They don't need to be the best absolutely everything. They're fine with humbly being the absolute best at business communications vantage. Now we're talking. So in two thousand, fourteen rumors were running wild google in the form of Youtube was sniffing around twitch for a possible acquisition. Youtube was already the de facto go-to for online prerecorded video. The site was aiming to create the same space for live streaming video, and while the company was rolling out some live streaming capabilities, the user base was already over at twitch. Meanwhile, twitch was actually eliminating one major feature that upset some of users in early August twenty fourteen the company began to delete archived broadcast recordings. There were more than two weeks. Old Partners got a little bit more breathing room they could hold onto their broadcast recordings for two months. And I didn't really cover this but in two thousand, thirteen, the company introduced a paid subscription tier for users called Turbo. This wasn't a subscription to a specific streamer but to twitch itself. So for nine dollars, a month users could log into their paid subscription version of twitch where they would be able to skip all pre roll and overlay ads. They also got access to more chat features, which is really that's the only features that viewers get access to on twitch. If you're not actually streaming stuff, anyway, turbo subscribers could also have their broadcasts recordings stick around for two months. Hit Box TV a competitor twitch that launched in two thousand thirteen attempted to use twitches announcement about clearing out the archives as kind of a leverage a weapon saying that twitch was out of touch with its user base but which already had the momentum and was really just getting started ultimately, Youtube would not be the company to scoop up twitch instead Amazon came in with a nearly billion dollar offer of its own and they bought the company. Would become an Amazon Business Kevin Len who was a CO founder of twitch and the chief operating officer later described the experience as frightening at least at first as someone who has been working in the same job since two thousand seven but has gone through five different changes in corporate ownership. Rock that? By the end of two, thousand, fourteen twitch had made an acquisition of its own. The company purchased good game agency not to be confused with good game studios. That's a company out of Hamburg Germany good game agency grew out of Philadelphia when CEO and founder Alex Garfield got interested in East sports and competitive gaming and gradually became more involved in the scene ultimately stepping in to help a professional team called evil geniuses after the team had been essentially swindled by crooked manager, the agency would become a big. Player at East, sports ultimately acting as the owners of not just evil geniuses but another team called alliance as well as holding its own tournaments. Garfield wrote a long and fantastic blog post describing his decision to align with twitch. They're really drove home his love for competitive gaming and the belief that this would be a great relationship a belief that ultimately probably didn't hold true two years later Garfield with leave twitch and good game in August. Two Thousand Sixteen he announced that the company and the sports. Teams had changed his life, but it was time for him to move on not long after which would shut down good game agency. Good game employees were now direct twitch employees twitch, which later would over the management for both evil geniuses and the alliance professional teams to the players on those teams and divested the company of team ownership. Today Garfield is the head of a company called top dog and sports streaming service that seems to me to be a bit of a rebuttal of the way streaming handled. On services like twitch and Youtube and he's also remained a vocal critic of how the new owners of evil geniuses have handled that brand. But let's move back to twitch in two thousand, fifteen twitch did something really useful for streamers and I'm really big totally serious about this. The company created a royalty music library that streamers could use the tracks and that library were cleared for streaming. So if you wanted to play music on your stream, let's say you've got a startup screen you haven't actually started playing yet. To run your stream for a little bit, get some viewers, and then then you can have some music playing in background or maybe you wanted music underlying whatever it was you were doing on the stream you could do it with this library and not worry about getting a copyright strike against you and this is a big deal. Music licensing is hard y'all as a peek behind the curtain I worked for Iheartradio, which is in the business of broadcasting content like music I mean, they have hundreds of radio stations, but even in podcasting and podcasting is different than broadcast because. In a podcast. Back to a specific episode whenever you like it's like having a copy of that content. So the licensing requirements for podcasting are a bit wonky. It's not like live radio where you hear it and then it's gone having access to a tool like royalty free music is Pun intended a game changer. The service began to experiment a bit with streaming stuff outside the world of video games. In February two, thousand, fifteen twitch began streaming poker games. I'm sure folks who have been familiar with the path of ESPN were worried about that. But the rest of us were worried the following month when reports broke that hackers had managed to breach twitches security and get access to user information the initial investigation seemed to indicate that user. Names, and encrypted passwords were leaked but that the financial information that users had with the site had remained safe as a result, all users were required to change their passwords while the leaked passwords are still protected by encryption encryption can be broken. If you have enough time and enough processing power users were also made aware that the hack had leaked some personal information such as the users, names and birthdates and addresses not great. In the summer of two, thousand, fifteen, one year after youtube had been eyeing twitch for a possible acquisition. We saw the launch of Youtube gaming later, just known as Youtube live. This was launched as a direct competitor to twitch streamers had options when it came to services but twitch had a huge head start of several years and had gathered a lot of the live streaming audience you do gaming. Despite having the incredible power of Youtube behind, it didn't have as strong and association with live streaming as twitch had. So for some creators, it just made more sense to move over to youtube from twitch because there was a related risk there they didn't have a huge following or anything, but for others sticking with the established service made the most sense particularly partners who had a lucrative arrangement with twitch. Youtube does offer some things that twitched doesn't such as archiving past streams indefinitely while twitch was clearing house after fourteen days or two months for partners. Those recorded streams stay with youtube forever like twitch youtube offers the ability for viewers to support streamers by joining the channel. Here's here's a complicated thinks youtube already uses the word subscribe to mean follow so you. Can follow a specific creator by subscribing for free and that makes the terminology confusing because at twitch, you follow a creative for free you pay to subscribe to a streamer on. Youtube you subscribe to a streamer for free, but you pay to join a channels membership. So it's the same stuff on either service it's just the the terminology is overlapping and different. One thing that twitch had going for its favor was its relationship with Amazon Amazon prime members can subscribe to one channel on twitch as part of their prime membership. There's no extra cost to the prime membership holder, but it helps support the twitch creator in October. Two Thousand Fifteen twitch began to expand its scope and opened up a new category of live streams called creative. These streams were meant to showcase creative hobbies and endeavors, and which launched the channels with a marathon of Bob. Ross. Painting videos. So many happy little trees a year. Later, the site did something similar would introduced a food category of streaming services broadcasting a marathon of cooking shows hosted by Julia Child. by the end of two, thousand fifteen, we started to see the sort of jockeying for talent has been a big part of recent news. A service called Major League gaming made an offer to a professional twitch streamers who goes by the handle nate shot and the deal would mean they'd shot would agree to stream exclusively on the major league gaming service leaving twitch behind but streamers like. Made shot would learn a pretty tough lesson, which is that you could get a big initial payout but unless your audience makes the move with you, you're not guaranteed much longevity in your success on the new platform. This is a lesson that a lot of people would learn the hard way over the following years, and on the flip side, it was also a lesson for the various streaming services. Times dropping an enormous amount of money on an exclusivity deal doesn't result in a big boost in users in the long term nature shot as it turns out return to twitch in two thousand sixteen. Meanwhile, another big player was getting ready to enter the space Microsoft as the powerhouse behind the Windows operating system and the XBOX series of video game consoles wanted a piece of the action the company began to look around for a potential. To build out its capabilities and their site spell on a service called beam beam had started in Seattle and it introduced a new factor. It streaming that of interactivity while twitches interactivity was mostly limited to chat between viewers streamers apart from some notable exceptions like the viewer controlled bought it twitch plays Pokemon, beam included tools that would let yours actually affect the streamers gameplay experience according to a press release from August two thousand sixteen. Quote with being you don't just watch your favorite streamer play you play along with them. You can give them new challenges and make real time choices that affect their gameplay from tool selection to quests to movement all through simple visual controls. In quote initially, the focus was really on incorporating beam into the xbox experience, which didn't have as much of an overlap with twitch while it was entirely possible to stream console games to twitch. The majority of streams tended to be from. PC, based games. So there was a time when these services didn't have an enormous amount of overlap, but in twenty seventeen Microsoft rebranded the beam service being became mixer according to Microsoft. The reason for this name change was one of necessity. There are regions in the world where the name beam was already in use for a different service and so Microsoft needed a name that it could. Use in different regions, preferably, a name that can still be used all around the world rather than you know have a name that's different for every single territory. The service also included some new features and prepared itself to make some big moves against twitch, and so we're getting to a point where some of the drama that's happened more recently has begun to unfold explain more when we come back. But first, let's take another quick break.

I WanNa talk to you about Cassese up by Lutron, smart lighting control brought to you by Lutron pioneers in Smart Home Technology. A lot of people think you need smart bulbs to get smart lighting, but there's actually a smarter way. Is Smart dimmers switches, replace the switch in your wall making all the lights that switch controls act smart. This is incredible when I priced out how much it was going to cost to turn my living room into smart bulb haven well, it was astronomical but with Caserta, all I had to do was change out one light switch that controlled those lights and now I get the benefit of smart bulb technology through this switch. Not only that I can use the switch on the wall to control the lights, which is different from smart bulbs. If you turn that switch off that powers, the smart bulbs, they are no longer smart, they're no longer anything. So Caserta actually gives you more options.

In 2017 seventeen twitch expanded who could monetize live streaming by launching twitch affiliate program not to be confused by the store affiliate monetization strategy that I mentioned earlier where you would get a special link, people could follow and then you would get a little kickback. Every time people use that link and said, the twitch affiliate program was a sort of step between twitch partner and casual twitch user twitch would choose channels to invite into the program. You couldn't apply for it. They would choose you and qualify your channel need have at least five hundred total minutes broadcast in the last thirty days at least seven unique broadcast days in the last thirty. Days and average of three concurrent viewers or more over the last thirty days, and at least fifty followers not I. The primary way affiliate members could make money off of streaming was through a system called bits, which are essentially a form of in-app currency that you used tip streamers, you buy this virtual currency with real money the new use the virtual bits to cheer on your favorite streamers you can tap them. It keeps track of the biggest tempers during a stream and yes i. do think this is largely in an effort to obfuscate how much money is going to each person and to twitch Allah Disney Bucks but that's neither here nor there. By January, twenty nineteen twitch was boasting more than three million streamers monthly with livestream tournaments bringing as many as one hundred, million viewers eclipsing most quote, unquote real sporting events. It was hitting a monthly average of nearly one billion hours of total watch time on the site. It had a solid place in the top ten sites that served as a source for video content online, Amazon prime being another in the top ten so. Amazon was actually holding two places in the top ten simultaneously and along the way twitch to deal with some of the stuff that comes along with the territory of providing a live streaming platform mostly in the form of dealing with people who were violating terms of service. Some people are being too vulgar or explicit although you gotta go pretty far to to to really trip twitches warning flags somewhere engaging in jackass light displays. Of Self harm which is right up against twitches terms of service a few were called out being frauds or cheats. There was a gambling scandal back in the day there's been some scandals of of people who have cheated on games like were using a view bought as opposed to actually playing a game There's one case where a person was faking having a real life disability in order to drum up sympathy and. Support and in the middle of the game angry and accidentally revealed that disability was in fact fake. There are numerous stories along these lines and every time one would be twitch would have to crack down a little harder on the rules and some of the bands that have been placed over people over the years have since been reversed some of them were just temporary to begin with, but a few do remain permanent. Matters more complicated is that the rules are somewhat vaguely defined. For example, twitch has a rule against streamers dressing suggestively or provocatively you know you're not supposed to be showing too much skin on camera, but there's no real standard that defines what this practically means, and sometimes you'll see one channel get banned for that sort of activity while other channels that seem to be just as guilty keep on going and this has been a continuing source frustration for people who are in the streaming space. And at the same time, twitch like many companies online or off is having to reckon with the massive problem of sexual harassment and misconduct. This is something that across the board has been a longtime coming as sexual harassment and all industries has been a huge problem. I don't know if it's more prevalent in the world of gaming, but it can certainly be more overt, and the fact that gaming has traditionally catered primarily to straight males and many games have perpetuated of fairly skewed. Point, of view when it comes to sexism that does not help things in the summer of two, thousand twenty, the number of streamers became the focus of allegations of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct twitch responded with a message that said it was looking into the accounts of those who had been involved in those allegations and was taking each and every one of those very seriously. In addition some people allege that the company itself had taken a rather hands off approach to particularly popular. Streamers most notably those who are under contract with twitch the implication being that if streamers are good for business than they could be exempt from the rules that is not a good look and the story gets super ugly and it's still unfolding as I record this episode. But one thing I can say is that some former vice presidents of twitch have confirmed some of those stories indicating that this is a deep problem with the company culture and honestly it makes me think A. Bit About Uber and how that company was really in a bad place for a long time as for other cases that don't involve sexual harassment or misconduct, it's extremely difficult to stand out on a platform like twitch just as it is hard to stay doubt places like youtube or pack in podcasts. The flood of content means you're competing against a lot of other folks for viewing time from your fans and so people try lots of different things in order to get those viewers or. In personalities that attract viewers and then the streamers will dial that personality up to eleven kind of like a professional wrestler would, and this means some streamers push the envelope a little harder than others it becomes part of their persona and the attraction of their channels but it also risks the great twitch ban hammer either on a temporary or permanent basis if you were to look at an exhaustive list of the various bands of high profile streamers. You're likely going to get upset not necessarily for the decision to ban some folks often those decisions are. Extremely well warranted, but you might get upset because there are a lot of times where twitch hasn't band someone for behaving really awfully. So the there's a real inconsistency with banning and that is a big problem and making that worse is that there are times when twitch will ban someone and then the reason for the ban is never disclosed. Now it's possible that at least in some of those cases, twitch has reached out to streamers and explain the reason for the ban, and then the streamers subsequently decide not to share that with their public. But you hear this often enough to get the feeling that at least sometimes accounts get banned for a blanket quote unquote violating of policies kind of statement. Perhaps. The most famous recent example of this is with the popular streamer. Dr Disrespect a guy beam disrespect had been banned before most notably when he and his cameraman ducked into a restroom at e three during a live stream. But that ban was made temporary disrespect had signed an exclusive multi year contract with twitch early in twenty twenty. But in June of this year, his account was suddenly removed. There was a livestream in June twenty twenty where disrespect was live on camera. He got a message on his phone he looked at it, and then he rapidly had a massive change of attitude and he ended the stream shortly afterward and that fueled a lot of speculation as to what was possibly going on like did he did he get shutdown live camera? Had He violated his exclusivity agreement? was He involved in a case of sexual harassment or misconduct or was it something else? Disrespect wasn't really talking and neither. Was Twitch, and as I record this, the reason for disrespects ban remains a mystery out sight of twitch and the doctor himself claims. He doesn't know why he was removed from the platform. He has since moved over to streaming on Youtube to this day streamers on twitch aren't supposed to play in games with disrespect on their team. Now, they can't play against him if they're in a game and they're matched up against him, but they're also not supposed to have his audio on their streams. That's been something that has. Jumped up recently to an has been a bit of a controversy now twitch holding a dominant position in the market also meant it was the prime target for everyone else and we started to see that really unfold in Twenty nineteen in August twenty nineteen professional streamer Tyler Blevins who's best known by his online handle Ninja signed an exclusive streaming deal with Microsoft's. Mix Service. It's kind of hard to explain to someone unfamiliar with East Sports. How big a deal? This was Ninja is a superstar. He's played many games ways perhaps best known for his fortnight play. He's participated numerous tournaments along the way he's been a commentator on tournaments for night has been while the most popular games on the twitch streaming service since for night. Introduced. The battle royale mode took a spot from a former battle royale darling called Pudgy and Ninja is a big enough deal that he has a professional management team to help him negotiate stuff like merchandising deals and sponsorships and exclusivity agreements, and so he and his team were able to secure a pretty sweet deal with Microsoft in return. Ninja. Would stream exclusively. On mixer twitch meanwhile struggled to figure out what to do with Ninjas dormant channel, it had millions of followers. The company made the decision to direct channel to promote other active channels in the fortnight space but that decision allowed someone else to game. The system someone created a streaming channel that was streaming explicit sexual video content. This person inflated the number of viewers. On that channel and they tad the channel as a fortnight stream and all the stuff was automated. So twitch looks and sees that there's this fortnight stream that has an enormous number of viewers and because Ninjas dormant channel was automatically promoting fortnight's streams that were ranking really well, the Ninja Channel began to display the feed from this this challenge that was just. Showing explicit sexual content then was understandably upset he had spent so much time building that brand. He wasn't allowed to go back and manages channel because of his exclusivity agreement and he felt that it was his name and reputation being drawn through the mud twitch management hastily banned the offending channel and apologized and people begin to wonder if maybe there needs to be. A better system to moderate channels on twitch menges. Departure wasn't the only one a couple of months after he left a another gamer known as shroud followed suit, and also signed an exclusive deal mixer shrouded more than seven million followers on twitch when he did. So clearly, Microsoft was banking on having top streamers Paul enough audience for twitch in order to give. Mixer a boost and also shroud happens to have the same management company as Ninja. It's a company called loaded, which I'm sure it's just a coincidence other prominent streamers soon, joined the ranks, King Galleon and e walk were also to that made the move from twitch to to mixer but ended up not being very long arrangement wall Ninja, and shroud signed exclusivity agreements. For presumably a ton of cash a princely sum at the very least Microsoft decided to pull the plug on mixer in the summer of Twenty Twenty, the company announced in June that mixer would shut down on July twenty second twenty twenty that existing partners would be moved over to facebook gaming. Now, this did not go over so well with a lot of. Folks on mixer and it led to some jibes from streamers on other platforms for people like shrouded. Ninja, there were questions of what move would make the most financial sense. But for lots of other people who spent time and effort building a following on mixer, it was a much more serious matter. They had spent years creating following and there was no guarantee they. Were going to be able to bring that audience with them, either facebook gaming or some other platform for the big superstars. This was sort of a bump in the road but for a lot of streamers who depended upon mixer as where they built their career, there was much more than that. The fact that Microsoft didn't reach out to streamers I but rather. Published this decision on twitter in a series of public tweets was salt in the wound because that's how people were learning about. It was the fact that it was being published on twitter but this is an episode about twitch not mixer. So I'll go back to twitch but one day I'll have to do a full story of the development, a beam all the. Way to the shuttering of mixer. But that tail has more than its share of dark scandals and bad decisions. Rumors started popping up that perhaps disrespect shroud and Ninja would form their own streaming service separate from all the established companies. Now, ultimately that proved to be pure speculation or at the very least if it ever had been a plan and didn't pan. Out that way, then Joe briefly switched over to Youtube live before he signed another multiyear exclusive agreement with twitch and so he has returned back home. Shout has done the same also signing a multi year agreement with exclusive streaming to twitch Dr disrespect remains banned from the platform. So he is not doing that as I wrap up these notes I can give you. A glimpse into some of the stats on twitch there are slightly more than three million viewers who are live on the service as I write this watching more than ninety, five thousand channels. The number of hours of content watched on twitch TV in August twenty twenty was one point six, billion hours of content holy cow that is equivalent to one, hundred, eighty two. Thousand Five, hundred, twenty, seven years. That's the amount of time spent by people watching streams on twitch in August. Twenty, twenty the all time peak in viewers at one time over the last week was just six million people. Now it's no big surprise but the average number of yours and ours of viewing has been on the rise since the outbreak of covid nineteen. For. Those of you out there who want to set up a twitch stream. It does require a few things if you want to do it really well you need a pretty beefy computer, not just to play games what to push out the streamed content to the Internet. Some streamers prefer to actually use A to P setup one PC dedicated to gaming and the second one just dedicated to handling the encoding and streaming of content part. You probably want a decent Webcam or better. You want a good microphone you want to become familiar with whatever broadcasting software you want to use like ob s so that you can. Have like a nice looking overlay and some transitions and stuff that complements channel. You've got to have good lighting you what your background to look. Nice. It's not the hardest stuff in the world to learn, but it does represent a barrier to entry on top of all that even if you're a super good Gamer and you set up your system, well, you've got good screen presence. You still got to gather an audience and like I said getting noticed is hard. It's not impossible but it is challenging even for someone who might be well known in some other form of media. me. and. It's also a good idea to take a really critical view of whatever platform you're thinking of using whether it's twitter something else because he don't want to hitch your wagon to a service that behaves in a way that you find objectionable you don't WanNa, work for a boss that does stuff that you find upsetting you WanNa try and find a platform that fits your philosophy. If you're not bothered by stuff that at one platform is doing and you don't think it's necessarily wrong or anything there's nothing wrong with joining that service but do take a critical look before you start making decisions. I'm sure that I'll do a lot more episodes related to twitch a while back I even used to stream podcasting as I would record episodes. Maybe I'll do that again in future episodes since I'm doing this from home. I could set up a twitch stream and actually stream recording sessions. You guys get here how many times I have to take pauses or how many times have make mistakes. It's a lot. You don't get to hear it in the final episodes because Tari is so awesome but it's a lot. I would need to install some software in order to make that happen. I haven't done that for this episode of this episode about streaming do not stream live but maybe next time I'll keep you guys posted in the meantime. If you have any suggestions for future topics, I should cover in tech stuff reach out to me. You can do so on twitter the hand over the show is tech stuff H.
