"A little bit of anxiety that warned us that if we don't study we might fail our ancestors when they would go hunting right. They had to make sure they weren't gonna be eaten by a sabertooth tiger so they needed their fight flight or freeze response in order to save them right right. Yeah the more. I see sabertooth. Everywhere they got eating the kickback ancestors got eaten. The problem is ever evolutionary things in our lives that change rate so where in the nineties and even like early two thousands. I saw a lot more people who were struggling with obsessions related to aids. I still see it occasionally less rate now we see a whole lot more just general health things -iety so there's always something that is sending signals to our brain that is saying we are in danger and we have to protect ourselves and when you know at some point maybe we'll have flying cars and then it's like what if our cars crash or whatever you know so. There is a part of anxiety that that is there to protect us and it does. It's just when our brain is over firing and telling us it. Everything is dangerous. One of my colleagues said it's sort of like a guard dog who barks it. Not just the mailman in not just the person who's trying to break in your house but even you when you come home mo- when you were saying the brain the brain tells us how does it brain tells. Is it a chemical release. Is it like an electrical charge. Is the brain telling us this thing about how we have to be protected. So it's the middle which is an almond shaped piece of our brain. That's that not kidding right. Sure i loved that play it releases chemicals and hormones when it interprets danger a nats. What gets us into that fight flight or freeze response and sometimes it misfires thinks it tells us that something is dangerous when it actually. Isn't you know. I'm very very lucky. And maybe this is partly how. I've coped with my problem. Which is i have a clip on magdala. Take it off and sometimes you know how sometimes you bring your phone with you and sometimes you don't. Sometimes i just leave my middle on the desk and let it charge. And then i come back later and put it in so are there. Mitigation strategies for intrusive. Ocd so obviously we. We have zero control over thoughts pop in our head. We have zero control and how we you know emotionally initially respond right. If i tell you not to think about the pink bunny my god. I can't believe you just said that. Outline right also you called my dog ocd. I'm not letting good at anytime soon. Interrupted so if you tell me not to think about a pink bunny rate and you're going to think about the pink funny as you even said at the beginning of of our talk crate and if i tell you you can't be angry at stoop. This is not a big deal. It's not like you're gonna turn off switch and just not the angry anymore but we can control our behavior so obviously knowing that part apollo you even mentioned sort of getting educated in treatment for ocd. Definitely helped you. Then there's stitches up for a second. Because i am fucking pissed at the pink money. Go ahead you're allowed to be allowed to have all the feelings you want. But in general. Just sort of what i call making our foundation stronger. Tell my patients assault time right and so many things going to that. That can help so making sure you get enough sleep rate making sure eating a healthy enough diet. This doesn't mean like dieting. The sunset me not eating sweets. This means like making sure. You're getting enough of your nutrients. This means exercising. This means doing hobbies spending time with people. You love doing things that you live to engaging those are going to be the things that are make your foundation stronger. that wendy's struggles come up. You will have sort of the thing to fall back on but nearly doing the exposures as the most important part of fighting. Ocd what's that that's great. I haven't even talked about exposure so exposure response engine is the therapy that we use to treat ocd. It's the gold standard and it's so simplistic and yet so difficult to do. But it's really just leaning into the thing that makes you anxious and not engaging in the behavior so for paula again. Back to that example of when you're cleaning your exposure would be not engaging in that cleaning behaviour for my clients who struggle with like a contamination where they don't want to touch things before eating right. We would go touch a bunch of things that they think are contaminated and eat with those hands. Ever lose a patient. Yeah no because what we do in exposure. We're not trying to teach you that on your anxiety will go away. We're trying to teach us. You can actually handle the worst case scenario. Whatever that thing is whether it's that bad may happen you'll get sick. You'll leave your car unlocked and someone will break in. I had a patient who is worried that they would have a flat in their house and so they never used their sink or shower at their house. They would go to the gym to shower every day. And it's great. He worked out all the time right because he the genesis he avoided sharing at home. And so what the exposure does is. I would have him shower home and use the sink at home and you know brushes teeth and all of those things which is just things that we do every day right and not go back and change so in case you have dressed up as mary and walked into the restaurant and gone. Wow this place is a dump. Yes that's a possibility but we don't necessarily need to. We have to look at what's called the core fear which is trying to figure out why it was so important apolo that. Mary thought that the restaurant was clean. And what would it be like to disappoint her. Had it not just right right so you wouldn't personally pretend to be married what you're saying just have to think through it. You know i could. But i don't know that i would be a believable mary so it works for some clients. Sometimes it does so. It's just sort of trying to figure out what will work for each client within that exposure paula. How did you beat it with nobody there to play mary. You know it would shift from person to person over time and ultimately what i wanted was to be like not just like loved and the fear of not being loved by this person. Whoever was that was my person could go on for years. That was the big fear. And i would. Do you know all sorts of things in order to get that person to love me and by the way. I think some of those people liked me. Okay but the very fact of the obsession made it really difficult match at all and what's about ocd. Is that just like you were saying before. Michelle if you think that if i knock three times on this would it's going to make sure that my mother doesn't her plane doesn't fall out of the sky in a common sense way you know. Of course that that's not true which is part of the you know the push me pull me of the whole thing is like i could see how crazy it all wise. I just couldn't stop it. And the answer is i don't know what stopped it really. I really don't show. is that common. Do people get over it sometimes by themselves. And is that going to put you out of business if you say that no. I always tell patients. I'm here to put myself out of business by giving you skills. Some people find that their symptoms wayne and that they are able to sort of push through them. It typically tends to be people who have pretty mild. Ocd symptoms and then other clients you know. Don't there's no cure for cd so you know. Even if somebody finds that they're ocd is not impairing them in a day-to-day manner. Things can sell pop up again because we can't control our thoughts. I've had a theory just theory that we're all just big bags of chemicals to some degree and that there's something there's something more volatile about my chemistry years ago than there is now and some of that could have been for a wide variety of reasons. So the bag of chemicals theory michelle. I think kind of what paul was saying is that i think we change as people as we grow up on and maybe white was stressing her out or what was difficult before. She's found some of these mitigating factors or the that stronger foundation that as she grew as a person on felt more confident in those relationships. Things that used to trigger her no longer trigger her stand up comedy had anything to do with it that you were getting approval from giant groups of people in you no longer needed to focus on just one. Because i've been. I mean i was right in the middle of really debilitating. Ocd in the midst of my standup career. Okay thought yeah so yeah no. That'd be good. I will say the audience the audiences my best friend. How screwed up is that michelle judge. Don't judge but they really are. Dave really really really. Are i love people. That's the thing about me is i. josh plane do. Do you tend to use medications for people with cd. I'm not a psychiatrist. So i can't give out medications or prescribed. Medications laid one on television. I have not only played myself as a therapist. Ever in terms of medication i would say about. Fifty percent of my clients are on medication. It depends on the severity of symptoms. If someone comes to me and says they don't want to be on medication than i'm happy to discuss and start treatment without. Not every patient needs medication. however if they're feeling stuck then we start to think about is medication necessary to help you. Get over that roadblock. I think of medication like an umbrella. Kind of take away all the symptoms. Just like when you go out on. A rainy day with an umbrella is still get wet. But it's going to help you be able to either lower or lower the mood so that you are more capable of tolerating the discomfort that comes with exposure. Look exposures are hard. I'm not gonna you know candy coated but they can be life changing and so asking somebody to do. The thing that they've been avoiding forever or lean into the anxiety that's hard and sometimes somebody needs a little bit of extra help besides me and besides just the therapy. That's where we look at medication. You know sometimes they need something that can militate against the obsessions. That was that was today's vocabulary word. Michelle twelve michelle massey. That was excellent. And now we're going to take what we learned and we are going to run that information through the old pounced. Enator paula. casey frank on the ukulele first of all. Thank you so much. It sounds wonderful. If i can get a little background music i'll tell you. What the pounced donator spit out. Can everyone see in the back. You can't okay. There's plenty of room here inside mispronounced. Don's had just move right down front and we'll begin the tour. I just want to warn you. Those intrusive thoughts come whipping through pretty fast. When that happens just jumped out of the waste and no one gets hurt. There's plenty of room. Brain is quite small. Poundstone is currently recording her podcast with her guest an ocd. Expert michele massey. She's asking her questions and listening to the answers home. I watch out there watch out. There's a whole barrel of intrusive thoughts coming. I hope michele massey is having a good time bitchy thinks. i'm an asshole. She's a therapist. She can probably tell everything is not about me. Stop thinking about me. Make a joke. Make a joke. The interview needs some comedy. Make a joke. Oh i could play the clock. What if there's someone who doesn't like the clock and he'll nah that's not possible. Everyone's like stunt can till story. Tell the story not that joke. That story no. What a stupid joke. Now i've offended the ocd sufferers dammit. There's another club. I can't join remember an old yeller when the mother is talking about bud searcy and she says it's no wonder no one wants him on a cattle drive. I hope we don't have to shoot my dog. Michelle messages mentioned people who knock on wood three times to protect their mother. Knock three times on if you were me twice on the pipes care people right this way right this way. Miss brown stones brain is about to light as you can see. It's a neon sign which is different than many normal brains there. It goes flashing on and off asshole. Asshole asshole lets you all exit this way..

So this is that vermicelli composting. You're doing verma composting. yeah right. They don't like sunlight. So when i lift the lid off they'll be on top of the food and the moist shredded paper. Just hanging out or eating and i pull the lid off and put my big head over them and start talking. They usually slither away as best they can. I mean to them much kind of come from out of nowhere.

I never want visit but mar-a-lago with french trump or with regular trump. I don't think i'll be heading there anytime soon. Now paul it is a very big day as you know because tony anita hull was not with us last week. Might we couldn't announce the winner of the longest cat contests eight missed tony anita hole so much last week it was a leading experience just token and not having male lonely time for the. Nobody listens to you. Mr mrs colpepper. I was so worried about tony. Anita hill. I'm so glad you're back tony. Thank you mrs cl pepper. It's good to be back with you. All lovely now tony. We put off talking about this contest. Because ms culpepper was just to wit's end missing you and the rest of us missed you a lot and also you've been kind of handling this contest now unlike our first contest where things went horribly wrong. We were sure we we were pretty sure. We're not gonna go horribly wrong with this. Because how can you mess contest where you just had to identify. The longest named cat of any of us like we need so simple. There's no planner in the world. That could screw that up. You just have to count the letters and we. We had it. Who wasn't the made. The who wasn't the fire festival. It might have been tonio anyway. Tony what went wrong. Oh my gosh okay so there are a couple things a lot of thing irreparable now. No nothing it. It all worked out the way it was supposed so hola spells her cat mrs fuzzy way with just one which is a little bit untraditional. My cat misses feser. Wig is named after scrooges boss's wife in a christmas carol but apparently well i. I've read the book. Christmas carol but i was just from the movie. I named my cat fez. And so i didn't realize it was two z's and yet on my game show we put the name of the cat up sometimes and so anybody who watches the game show and is a nobody would assume that. Mrs feser wig is spelled with onesie. So we were locked into the onesie spelling and not only the onesie spelling but also m. r. s instead of us. Am i correct. Yeah says he has weapon. Weather's with the double z. Rights and we thought that was the longest cat name however is fell. Mr totes m. i. s. t. e. r. t. o. to e. s. which is also eleven letters and people would know that because of why because of instagram. I post pictures of him and always call. Mr totes his name on my stories. He's little stock. So you never abbreviate. Mr and paula always does so a listener. Might think that. Mr totes was the longest or at least tied for the longest corrupt. If you go to my instagram new salt mr out it out. Eleven letters and if you knew how. Paula actually mrs spazzy wake. That's only ten letters so in theory mistress hosts could have and should have been the winner. So what have you done tony. What have you done it based on how the cats spell their names. 'cause i don't think mister toad mazel what lazier than that doesn't spell out. Mist are trust me. You know he doesn't. He's more of a numbers guy too so he definitely doesn't anyway so what we decided to do. Sorry i just want. I just stopped. Because i was thinking about how much i love my cash. Anyway that'll happen so what we decided to do. Is that if you guess either. Mr tomas or mrs fazio wait no matter how it was spelled. Onesie doubles z. We counted your entry. If you wrote calls we counted your entry because we wanted to be a spare as we possibly could because shocking we had no clear answer or tongue in iran's she was secretary of state and arizona. I'm telling you she didn't say does he. Hold contests were stolen. It was stolen. it was not french. president trump. not right. I put it into her a random name generator with. How was that you upload all the means and it scrambles them and then chooses one. Oh wow gifts. The days of the fishbowl are gone. The winner of the longest cat contest was laura romaine so.

Writer Aliette de Bodard Discusses Matriarchies in Fiction
"The world as we know it is ruled by men but when it comes to fiction writers can choose what power structure they create and how they depicted despite the free rein this allows authors most recently replicate the patriarchy win authors. Do step outside the familiar. Societal structures and present us with matriarchies. What do we see. Aristotle condemned societies. The place women in paula knowing then is gonna caucases for threatening masculine supremacy since then. Men have often used representations of matriarchies as a way to demonstrate that women are incapable of or should not be trusted with holding power thankfully. The tide is turning early. Feminist speculative fiction writers like joanna russ explored all female worlds and pave the way for modern writers to explore more diverse power structures in action as something more than just projected male anxiety one. Such writer is elliott to bought out who. We are very pleased to welcome in joining us. In a discussion of matriarchies in speculative fiction. Thank you so much for joining us elliott. would you like to introduce yourself to ellis. Yes thank you so much for having me here. my name is edzard. I'm an award-winning writer. Of fantasy. and science fiction Most known for the universities which is a vietnamese inflicted space opera and my latest book is fire heart tiger which is a suffolk romantic. Fantasy said i guess you could call it too much rocky awesome and that is exactly why you are here to talk about matriarchies tonight. So first of all. I'll matriarchies only of used to us. As a way to deconstruct all paradise the patriarchy there other things right and they are They have historically existed Day are also very There's been a lot of investment in mostly trying to hide that they've existed or make it so that they were those terrible the stoke in places. Because you know god forbid that women ever been charged with anything But you can trust for instance The vietnamese society before the arrival of the chinese who who subsequently colonized vietnam was very probably some kind of much marcle and or much linear and you could see it in.

C by the way, and Elizabeth Warren are now backing them, along with the long bus, which is just makes my mind go nuts. They're basically saying, you fat cat Hedge funds on Wall Street have made so much money with your back room meetings where you're gonna short cos I won't explain how that all works.

Potentially billions of dollars. Huh? Huh? Huh? But he's not. I mean, not shorting but didn't like Romney do something like that, where him and his company would take over companies and they would borrow or spend off of their credit and then bankrupt the company, the company I don't know if Romney did it, but certainly that has been in the past What these hedge funds have done, and this is perfectly legal. They take a short position they without explaining how you're short a stock. They're basically betting that a company is not going to go well do well and that a stock price world will fall.

Uganda's Elections: Singer Bobi Wine Takes on President Yoweri Museveni
"On thursday millions of ugandans will go to the polls to vote for president at the helm is the incumbent yoweri museveni a former guerrilla fighter who ousted to dictators. He's now been in power for more than thirty years. Mid seventy s up against a number of candidates but the man the forefront is a singer and politician. Bobby wine the world. Africa correspondent halimi. Condie is in uganda's capital kampala. So the votes coming up in a couple of days lima. What is the pre-election atmosphere like this has been an election. That people have been watching. Because it's so symbolic of what seems to be happening in the region. You have a young population against kind of the old guard on one hand. President mu seventy and his campaign. Slogan has been secure. Your future and on the other side is Somebody half his age. Bobby wine and his slogan has been new. Uganda and not kind of seems to be the crux of what we're hearing people say but other than that there have been real logistical challenges here namely slow down at the internet and restrictions on social media in fact during a presidential address today president seven actually admitted that the government was blocking or restricting access to social media platforms like facebook that impacts ordinary people as well as journalists like myself. There are also concerns about violence. What are people worried about specifically violence from security forces as well as excessive force. We've seen dozen at least dozens of people at demonstrations or caught in the crosshairs of demonstrations who have been killed Especially a couple months back and this is also impacting manley. Opposition leaders like bobby wine as well as members of his party and other opposition parties in fact during an interview this morning with a local kenyan radio station bobby wine was interrupted and this is what he had to say. Some sorry. i'm even right now as we speak being raided by the msci to end the interview. Because i can't see between my security. God what would that is pretty dramatic. Yeah and this isn't the first time last week i was on a press. Call with bobby wine and the same thing happened. During the middle of the interview you see security officials essentially pulling him out of the vehicle and this has kind of characterize this entire campaign season here. And i spoke with one human rights lawyer here. His name is peter mccullough and he works with chapter for uganda which is an ngo and this is what he had to say about. This election from bisham. Our rights perspective has been at beat of high-handedness torture harassed. A number of cases have been reported where people have disappeared and asmatullah. Okay where does seem to be coming from. And he says that all signs point to the top as an president museveni so what has been the government's response to this violence and these allegations against president and seventy. It's been singing unapologetic. I mean the government has really mostly accused the opposition at being the these troublemakers of undermining the election of inciting people to go against the election of ignoring covert health regulations that we've seen that have essentially restricted in person. Campaigning today spoke with a government spokesperson. If one opponent oh and this is what he had to say about members of the opposition or pushing granted they think that simply by virtue of being a presidential candidate. Some rules don't apply to you. Traffic rules apply one hundred percent. So i won't drive recklessly. You'll be stopped by traffic police and a tragedy. What he's talking about there is if you're here in kampala. What you'll see or rather what will here first or these trucks zooming around blasting music and campaign slogans but many pointed out that these rules aren't being applied equally these rules that are extensively for kovac reasons. I e limiting in person contact are actually only impacting certain people in this campaign are. That's that's the allegation and finally helium. What ordinary ugandans you meet on the streets as you walk around. What are they saying about this election. Really the biggest concern. I'd seen on. All sides is about violence and insecurity and this is something i hear expressed on the radio and on tv. Some people have actually left paula to go vote in their rural homes but also because they want to be away from kampala. This is a center of support for bobby wine. So if the election swings in the opposite direction we could see demonstrations or protests against the the outcome followed by heavy crackdown and today president. Mu seventy warned against any disruption and said. The army is strong. The army can protect people. The army is here. The question is is that reassuring for people or is that going to be something that scares people and keeps them at home. The world's halima condie speaking with us from kampala. The ugandan capital. Thanks very much. Could speak anki

Chris Doering talks Florida and Georgia
"We welcome in chris during Who gives us her. Quite a look ahead to tomorrow's game. Chris in most years florida hosting lsu of the sec this week. It's been pretty quiet. I am curious as you know those two teams so well especially from florida side What what are they thinking as they get one of their bitter rivals in a bitter rival that they are a prohibitive favorite. It is weird. Isn't it paula. Me and thinking back to win. This game was originally scheduled. I thought most lsu people felt like we're gonna get a chance to play later in the year we'll get healthier. We'll get miles brennan back. We'll be in better position. And i would argue that. They're actually in a worse position now than when they were originally scheduled in october. So i it's kind of a weird dynamic with a lotta florida. Fans looking forward to sec. Championship game next weekend for me. This is all about. Florida has nothing to do with their opponent. Lsu it's about getting right offensively full full-fledged dress rehearsal right costumes everything. Let's go for what we're gonna do next week. I i honestly been kind of disappointed with florida's offensive performance. The last three weeks dating back to the vanderbilt came. Because they just look inconsistent. They look like they walk through a haze periods of time. They look like they're not executing and part of it's their own fault for looking so good against arkansas in the second half and missouri against georgia. We set the bar pretty high for them but focused level has not been there for a full sixty minutes. I want to see all fence. Get back to executing at the level. They were early in the year defensively. Let's get some things shored up. Let's figure out how to keep from giving up these long passing plays. Let's get generate some more pressure on the quarterback. Let's be able to to penetrate and stop the run something. I thought they did. Well against tennessee last week but The thing i'm gonna keep my paul. What are the numbers for. Kyle trask because obviously this is a game as you said against a A bitter rival one. That beat florida by fourteen. Last year florida's got a chance to return the favor but they also have a chance to outduel in back to back weeks what mack jones get did against the very same defense. And don't think that winning the heisman trophy is not something that dan mullen really wants. For contrast and something that will help his program significantly going forward in on that subject. How do you compare. Kyle trash to meg jones. And that's really his main competition now and that we know we know what had next two weeks especially next week but what what what what separates college trask. If anything well first of all. I love both of these guys you know as a former receiver. I love the the accuracy. I love the the the way they re defenses and get the ball to the right guy. On what the defense is dictating But i would go back and say kyle. Traffic is probably had a tougher. Time than what mack jones at and. That's not taking anything away. From mac ios but look at how. Good this offense of line is for alabama. Look at how well they've run the football over the last six games or so look at what. Najji harris has done. Devante smith the reason why iraq jones's numbers look so good on the deep passes over twenty yards and no disrespect. Mac has been really accurate. But when you're throwing a guy that's five yards behind the nearest defender. It makes it a little bit easier. So again i think without the run game florida certainly not able to run the football very well. I don't think they're offensive. Line is the most consistent So i think the load that kyle. Trask bears a little bit harder to to carry them. What jones does now with that being said. Look at the weapons of florida has i. I don't think i've ever been able to say at least in recent years. That florida has more receiving weapons around their quarterback than what alabama does. They've been absolutely loaded but Looking at the way that that not only kind of is utilized trayvon. Grimes justin shorter. All those receivers. Jacob copeland has come on as well Forgetting about tony. Who might be one of the biggest Factor mismatch guys in the sec. Right now but the way. They use the running backs as well. That was something that we saw against georgia so a lot of different guys. That are helping. Kyle trask out. But i think with the advantage that alabama has on the offensive line and that run game to complement the throws down the field. I think kyle may have a little bit more of a impressive Season just because of how much he's had to do himself chris. Couple of games. I want to ask you about one. Particular auburn at mississippi state mississippi state has been up and down we. We've been through that conversation. But i'm really curious about auburn. Because they've had some really good moments this year and then some clunkers especially lately. I know what you're doing here paul. You love it. When i go off on auburn and it's been up and down year with them right early in the season. I was really down on him. I was starting to get A little bit more positive with the way they were able to run the run the football figuring out who they were with take bixby and that offensive line and then they got hit with a bunch of injuries up front Bixby was was banged up.

The president laid out those claims in a 46 minute video. If we're right about the fraud, Joe Biden can't be president. But the president is wrong. Judges in courts across the country have said the campaign has not provided evidence of widespread voter fraud. And Joe Biden is the president elect. Neither of those facts deterred the president who released the 46 minute. White House produced video on Facebook Wednesday filled with false accusations about the election We used to have What was called Election Day. Now we have election days, weeks and months. The president's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, need similar baseless claims in Michigan yesterday evening.

Ask because well just to try to understand because people get lost in hospitals. Yes, yes, Paula, but that is an architectural problem. Might be people get off? The in hospitals is because number one. Our government never really dedicate that s significant amount of money to build a very nice hospital. It usually goes in pieces. Okay, so use you have one building, and then you had another building and another building, and meanwhile fifty years went by, and so you know this complex, which is a medical center now it's called, nor even an ospital anymore, so it has like different this different infrastructures with different. Basement inside, so it's so normal to get lost in a hospital so normal. Don't worry about that, plus it's not even like trying to get your neighborhood because at least in your neighborhood.

That would. Be My life in a very positive way then. You know a here's technique just happy that I use that. Maybe you could pass on which is if I'm trying to go somewhere to? Somebody's house for dinner or to an audition or to someplace where I don't know how to get there and I get lost. I do a thing where at a certain point. I will call the person where I'm supposed to be going and I'll say look I'm very very lost. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA try for fifteen more minutes. And if I can't get there, then I'm going home. And you know. What in all the years I've been doing that? Only one time did I have to go home, but once I establish that I only have to go through this really difficult thing for fifteen more minutes usually works out that I can find and so the. Motivation plays a big role into that right and seeing. The end of the tunnel right, so you really put some some time on your on your on your behavior that you know it kind of makes you relaxing the because you really have made a decision, right? They say well. I'll go home right. I think that's exactly what it is yeah. I sometimes get lost on my hippocampus. I've heard you get lost in the middle of a sentence. Paula it's happened. Yeah, now. Let me let me ask you. Paula has kind of her hippocampus. It seems. Are there other problems that she might have? That are related to that. You know at are, are there problems at ten tend to cluster around people who have this kind of spatial temporal dislocation? We haven't. We haven't really found anything. It is I mean we have thousands of people in our website with? I mean there's only one Paula poundstone. Okay, but there are a lot of people with similar symptoms like power, and so it's it's. It's not what we have found is not significantly related to anything because people were. Kind of speculating on memory problems, or or the reason why this has been described, you know. I'm not a non smarter than any of my colleagues have been studying. This was really coincidentally. We found this person, but this people got kind of mixed up with you..

"Wild didn't we will not you and I know no talking about after the end of the revolutionary war until you said we I've been we as Americans Paula I still live under and we just do a constitutional amendment and that way there we don't have to we we don't have to depend on the kindness of strangers well you need a super majority of states states for the legislative solution you just need a majority of electoral votes so California's in on this plan and we have a lot of votes and so that gets you pretty far along just right out of the gate okay so let's let's move on to another question which is what's the most surprising thing that people react in your classes when when you tell them about the constitution gives a fun fact so if by fun we mean sort of distressingly depressing investing so yeah yes I'm not worried about being depressed I have shit loads of anti bonebreaking pills that I can pop it any minute were you going to do what you so high do they really action good to know so my students are always surprised by the into it the original constitution was a pro slavery document that it had lots of protections for slave owners including not allowing Congress to bar the international slave trade for twenty years requiring that Free States stated slaves got to free states that they'd be returnable to slave state now it's not just one little hey there no three averted we get rid of things through constitutional amendment so you told me there were about a dozen constitutional amendments yes so there's been over a dozen and the after the civil war is where we get the the sort of revolution in the constitution from being a pro slavery document to being a much more Galateri document that was a series of amendments known as the cut the shit amendments right sometimes called Shit amendments it was a trio of that's weird that they ever did that I I don't know I mean I knew that Thomas Jefferson had slaves I knew they were wrong about a lot of things they were prescient in many ways and some of the stuff was kind of amazing our foresight and then there were other things that was just like really also they were human beings and they were wrong about a lot of things but I don't think of them as villainous and that straight the fact that it would be such a pro slavery documents strikes me as villainous it had it had to be in order to be passed right I mean the southern states wouldn't have signed onto a constitution that that didn't allow slavery my correct that's right so there's two ways to think about how could this be possible and one is just hardball politics there was huge the amount of property in slaves you weren't going to get this done if people thought that was a risk the other is slavery was normal in this world and so doesn't excuse it but it was hard to imagine a world in which there would be no slavery at all and so it's the fact that they succumb to what was normal in their world is somewhat typical although some people did bring it up at the time right it was with in their capabilities to see this was a moral wrong and make a different decision but many people were willing to compromise it's not so much of a fun fact no it is a little bit depressing yeah absolutely Boise Mervyn cheers us up you're you're you're rival Sam Ervin do you think a lot of kids when they sign up for your class they think Oh my God this is the guy from Watergate I don't think my students know what Watergate is your students what Watergate is oh yeah well I lived through it so I'm older than you yeah I mean if they made probably do Buffon asking it's depressing how would they not know what Watergate is okay but he's not McConnell is there ah well thank you for for promoting our general welfare and helping us secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity Paula based on what you just heard what advice can you give our listeners about the United States cuts to toossion Ben Castle House.

Oh yeah this is a pretty great job with the exception of the fact that it actually it costs me money to make this podcast. It's the greatest job in the world. Here's the turn in the pool. Though Ooh we can only keep making the podcast. If our listenership increases we need listeners to spread the word I see so you're just jumping into this segment unbidden. Yes okay many listeners though don't don't feel comfortable sharing with their friends and loved ones that they are. Nobody listens to Paula. poundstone listeners not true so. I've written some simple simple dialogue log to break that conversational logjam which doesn't exist it. Does Adam people feel uncomfortable discussing in this and that's why I've created the simple sample dialogue. Try this okay listener. What do you do with that fitted sheet listeners friend. I'm trying to fold it here pinch. These these two sides together listener now. Let me show you start by gathering. These elastic parts together listeners friend ochre listener wait. Where are you on between the fall. Who is ner? Put your left hand in the flap you've made by folding and wrapped the quadruple layers of sheet around. You're right elbow. Listeners friend would no word listener or monitor the part. That's driving on on the floor for the whole thing in half not yet. I'm amy here. This is implausible listeners friend. How did you learn learn how to do this listener well. I've never known how to tell you this before but are listening to the comedy podcast. Nobody listens to Paul. Johnstone listeners friend good read where she had made a ton of money from frontier communication listener you would would new listeners friend Sir. Nobody Listens Diplo upon don't taught you how to fold fitted shoes listener. No no one knows how to fold a fitted shoot shoot. It's the only place where a robot replacing human worker mixing censored all thought I was going to suffocate inside this sheet one. Its No no how much happiness nobody else tennis brought me before I do please keep encouraging aging Paula to remind the people of the world that saving the Earth is urgent whether Rhonda Woods is kids can handle it or not listeners friend rent can listener showers and then we slowly fade to black yeah unless you have a and then things get brighter yeah but I can. I want the listener. Snow Adam felber a few minutes ago asked us if we could turn the lights down which is proof positive that the papa those brightened his world. I think I think Tony Anita Hull brightened our world by turning up the lights and I asked her to turn him down because you like to pride for you because the pop-publicity that's their claim at him but he turned me vampire or something your world world. That's a slogan pop ables. It didn't turn into a vampire. It didn't say anything about whether they taste good or not or how they are good for your nutrition or your digestive system. It simply said they brighten your world and I think we've proved that they do. I think you're right and look I. I hadn't noticed that this was on the pop ables bag before but it says warning may cause photo sensitivity photo sensitivity sensitivity to light off all right here on the bag that can't possibly after purified Stevia leaf extract probably making that up uh-huh. You found me out again with culpepper. Go next. You're seeing Mrs. It's not the right thing to do. It's another services Ellis's. You've committed evening. Please pardon that egregious Boehner on my part Mrs culpepper so I want to go back to your simple several dialogue second Iraq lattes because now not only are you recommending that people recommend mend our podcast recommending in this simple sample dialogue that they do so with their dying breath well if they must but why must they you know every cloud has a silver lining and also I want to say the way you've constructed this dialogue. Yes we're not not getting any new listeners out of it because it seems like the other person the listeners friend is also succumbing to his fixation in that fitted sheet in fact you wrote at the very end their listeners friend friend. I don't think I can get you out of there and it was very muffled voice. I don't think the listeners friend makes it either so loose framework. It is a scenario in which we lose a listener and a potential uh-huh rather than gaining them which is why it's so important that listeners spread the word. Nobody lives forever listeners. They're dropping like flies all right then all right well it was it was great to have arm and hammer cloud control cat litter supporting show this week and it's a special thing to me and you. I want thank them so much for doing so. You know my sure. I've told you this before that my doctor gave me some face masks yeah for when I sift litterbox is right now. I don't need it because you can see what I'm saying like. An autographed facemask can have that in lieu of a hotel so they could and Scott Franciscus is happy to pay the impact. He's not he's benefactor. He be POPs up on our facebook page from time to time that I advise everybody due to go visit yeah and he's never mentioned anything about paying for any stuff as you know what.

You know it's late at night. I'm tired and I hear cat chat crying and I'm in front of my house. It'd be kind of a frequent thing for you to be in front of your house and you're a cat crying. I'm in front of my house that I hear kept growing and I think oh my Gosh Josh where where's it coming from. Where could it be an. I'm looking looking wrote him. Finally Finish on doing the key and I opened the door and there's like six cats and the inside my house and I remembered oh I have a live chat but I swear standing there like looking in the bushes and trying to let my eyes adjust to the dark and I'm like I could use a stray cat and likes cats. Just I have a total of twenty seven or something thirteen fourteen cats your all time high water mark with cats say hi P Mark Sixteen eighteen sixteen was the most man if there's any scientists out there that are working on any kind of how to monetize cat urine. Please please get in touch with NIA. That'd be very helpful to you. Oh my God. I don't know that anybody is working on that to be honest with you. It's available substances on Earth. So maybe something there yeah yeah. There should be something then. I'm told by our crack production team that you bumped into your neighbors. I did mcmansions house next door. They've been building for three years. Yeah at one point we'd be for long coming in and then we started hearing that God awful sound sound of wood and nails being pulled out. Wow I surprised they're allowed to pull up the nails because at this point even building it for so long that it might have landmark status yeah yeah it's that it has been that long and it towers over my house and and the workers have like a great view through this through the slats of my bathroom threw shade into my toilet shade threw shade at for a moment it's like the neighbors have a great view of my bathroom shame name and I didn't want to get into what that would be my bathroom Chez Chez.

No I'm not certain Venetian there anyway so I did bump into my neighbors and here so I've think I've bumped into them before but in the course of three years like I've only seen him a couple of times. I don't really remember what they look like anymore. That hasn't been around for a long long time. That damn building going wants to sort of like these them. I Apologize Apologize for building a house right exactly two different Christmases. They missed the second one and they hit the third one. They give me cooked in all right so I'm coming up the street with my dogs from the walk and uh-huh Paula and high you know trying to figure out who they are and then I realized okay it's going to be and they S- neighbors he said thank you so much for your patience with the House and now I mean I'm right in front of them. They can see the look on my face which has not changed I I was. I didn't want out lie so I didn't say well. That's no problem. I just hung my mouth open. With what would what would allow patients look like burning down there construction projects. I know it was it was an embarrassing encounter counter because they really hit me where I live by saying. Thank you for your patience because the truth is I'm not patient at all. I'm sick of that stupid house. You could have referred them to any any one of the seven or so podcast that you have mentioned him on with a total lack of patients. I feel confident that they'll never listen to. Nobody listens frankly. They're not cool enough. I've sort of made a sport out of hating them. Even you don't know them at all on your mulch pile at one they've ruined my multiple and then they did it again again today. And there's a new crew they got rid of apparently they were ripped off by one contract and their contract so then they started with another contractor and the new workers you like stand on top of my mulch pile. I I wish that they will fall in and be eaten by the worms but so far that hasn't happened. That's very unlikely even should they fall line because worms take wha what scientists call a long time to eat something could prob- zipping along no no no no but I would think a worker that long I'm from my workers or their workers to get eaten by worms. They wouldn't even notice they'd be like you know. It doesn't seem like James is here. Today doesn't doesn't matter one piece of advice about the slats of your possibly Venetian blinds yeah is if you can see the ground or your window that means you've got them in the correct position that people above won't be able to see if I can see the ground there pitched the other way.

Okay Paul I. I'm so sorry about that. Wall risk any. Can you move the Walrus off of her flute. That is disgusting. That is gross. We're GONNA have to pay for that flute. Okay now aw I wanted to ask you something. Listeners are concerned. How's the nipple? Oh my left nipple. Mike Catt Clue Joe of the hero always grabbing it when I ask You oh because just saying left nipple creates a cat pierced nipple like a month ago now. It's worried worried that it might be getting infected. I don't think he's infected. So much. As it's just still irritated it shouldn't be it shouldn't be now. You're left nipple expert nipple all just of any sort but I just nipple elegy. No okay okay so she has like velociraptor Hind large ten. I picked her up thinking I was comforting her and she managed to so by one of Claude aw right into my left and right into very painful. I do feel like I should have healed by now because I'd have to look back in the archives but I feel like that happened in early to mid July. You know I don't I don't get a regular newspaper anymore but I do get a trader Joe's thing circular and also a twenty percent off bed bath and beyond what I did was I rolled up my bed bath and beyond coupon and I did tap on the nose with it and say don't ever ever again bad cat bad cats released you dealt with a situation proactive but it's still tender is what you're saying a little bit tender Yeah Okay Yeah.

No it's fine to say but my right nipple say all right so Paul to change the subject quickly yeah. Do you have any messages that you would like to impart to our listeners this week. Thank you so much for asking been to a lot. It's been a it's been a crazy show Joe Joe yeah absolutely first of all Scott Francisco. If you could please cover us on that flute I would really appreciate it over one. The cost of the flute Scott Francis has he's a listener and a lot of listeners might want to think about this for themselves. He's a benefactor of our show. He's not and he's been paying for a lot of things. The only thing he paid for was the was the fact that he the postage due on the prize that he one from Marchisio assigned host hotel soap and as we've established many a time that was Tony Anita halt fault because he tried to put it in a standard envelope and mail it to him and offices like don't fucking do this yeah so he received a soap postage to and of his involvement as a benefactor vershow bellied up to the benefactor table any early on paid for the postage for the soap and since then he's been paying for various incendiary expenses and I think when a Walrus sits on our or floats flute yes that that's something that's got would be happy to pay for. I want to thank him ahead of time. I never thought I'd say this but let's move onto the simple sample dialogue. Am I must be the luckiest performer in the world. I get to get together with my buddies and make a podcast. That's full of laugh with a few few handfuls of helpful knowledge shaken not stirred with love and listeners respond to it so many nobody's telling me they're doing their part in the Thomas Coin Search. I feel confident. We're going to find him before bear finishes eating the challenging part is that we have to increase the number of fans of the show because that's the only way we can continue making it. The best way to do that is of course word of mouth well. Yes unfortunately many listeners find it hard to share with their your friends and loved Owens. Nobody listens to Paula poundstone listening. I think so I have written some simple sample dialogue to break that trail. I gotta say Yeah every week. We do the simple sample dialogue and every week you introduce it with this with this somewhat long winded explanation of why we're doing it. That's why I wanted to say well. If you'll look the Walrus right now he is riveted right because he's never heard this for a lot of other loser like we get a simple on the edge of his seat waiting to hear what these pulling himself closer to you by his tusks. What did what they okay? Try this walrus listeners friend. I've known you my whole life. We went to school together from kindergarten on. I never even knew you liked country music and here now oh you've written almost every hit on the country music charts listener. I do like country music. It often tells their relatable story. I love Johnny cash and I always I thought Dolly Parton was underrated. Listeners friend with lots of people think that and they haven't come up with hits like I had heartache for breakfast and I'm still full in my eyes are up here honey dear and hold me like you do the TV remote and I'll change your channel boy. You've scratched me off your honeydew list and and Lord make my last bite a cinnabon. How do you do it listener well? I've never known how to tell you this but I've I've been a nobody listens to Paula poundstone listener for a year now listeners friend and she teaches country music songwriting listener. No Oh but there's lots of information like Kleenex isn't good for the pipes. It's just it's such a funny and creatively free show. It's sort of lit my fuse listeners nurse friend. Wow I'm going to have to listen my heart could eat a slice of that pie listener hold on. Do you have a pen you mind if I use that. That's your simple sample download this week. Yeah a listener who what about that made you think it wasn't well because it's so incredibly fanciful that in a fence and fall into posit somebody reaching the top of the country charts with some very specific song names yes but that hasn't happened. Oh No it has it. It has no google any of those songs and none of them are at the top of the country charts. This is the sort of thing that could happen. This is what we're looking for. We're looking to bring you you know and I think you think that it's going to be Moldova all the time I mean yeah huge impact on the United States and the rest of the world with our podcast and that's not how it's going to happen. It's going to be one listener at a time but it has to be a real listener yeah. That's the thing Paula poundstone. There's no real listener who fell down a well. There's no real listener who became inspired by our show and became a top selling country songwriter none of this. Are you gonNa tell me that you've scratched me off. Your honeydew.

"paula" Discussed on Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone
"Do you want to hear the definition? Yeah. It's also in the Oxford English, dick. No, it isn't. Yeah. So listen to this a tripod blend. A fictitious fiber blend often mentioned by Paula Poundstone during her podcast and is supposedly used to craft her fine line of shirts used in a sentence. These sorts are made from a remarkably soft try blend. Note the use of the word fictitious in that. Yeah. I think that validates whatever saying except that it says that it's fictitious tissue, which means it doesn't exist. Now. That's a typo. No. I don't think so type thing that might be a typo has been driving me. So crazy, I don't have hair. But I would have pulled it out by now over this. So I went and found another source that argues that the polyp Poundstone at Paula, Poundstone dot com t shirts are made of a try blend involving cotton tripod, try blend. Do you know where I found that piece of information at Paula Poundstone dot com. I wanna all listeners to go to that website right now. Because it says it says it's a try blend t-shirt. It does not say try Holly. Yeah. That's a typo. No, I'll tell you why. Because the guy who does my website, you know, because I have somebody maintain it. And he he judged by the letter and last month was tight for me. I'm not making as much money as I as I need to. So we talked it over and it's just put for now poly blend, but it is in fact to try poly blend. He didn't put poly blend either. He said tribe land, what is called involves cotton. Yeah. And that is the truth that you can't change it. You know, what I have to tell you one thing. And it's not on this topic. Okay. Shock. The other day. I was trying to schedule something my manager bunny burns whose us one of the producers on this show. We were trying if he's on her lap. She thinks she multi tested said she's like fairly casks. She negative tests e. Okay. So the day. So I'm on the phone with her and we're trying to schedule. In fact, I think at time where I could appear on another podcast. I can't remember which one it was stories momentum podcast. But. We're trying to schedule it and I- frustrated about my time because I have no time for anything. And so I said why can't do Tuesday mornings because I have a nine thirty appointment on the phone. She goes, I'm guessing therapy. Wow. And she wasn't kidding. That was like, I'm guessing therapy. Like, okay, that's not insulting enough. I'm guessing therapy. In fact, no guessing, I don't have time for therapy. This is the closest thing to therapy. I can come of this this show that and sometimes I what I do is. I rubbed. My Twi poly t shirt on my cheek what you think and that's done. That's a comfort to me. We have not shirts coming out for this show. Right. You brought it right back around to the which is absolutely stunning. But yes, my go-to HTTP colon slash slash maximum funds. Store dot.
