But you're gonna start with you overall. Just a brilliant match to watch absolutely brilliant match to watch. I think we all enjoy did. Obviously from a german perspective would rather by munich scoring five. Six seven goals. You know they had enough chances to to win this game but you gotta give a compliment to zuma this solid well that were highly aggressive in. Pompeii brought him up in a second golden martinez. But then it's typical by munich. They're gonna come back and they came back they came back. I mean had made some adjustments in the young already in the first time. We've gotta seems like he was injured a little bit and Ease up dow zula wafting by especially alfonzo. Dave is coming in on the left flank. He made a little bit of difference in that post and that made it created chances after chances thing tomas played an outstanding game. The eagle is it an popayan made through a goal. I think overall attaya maybe we would have been a more honest the sold but it's going to be wide open for the second leg even if peres comes away with a win. It's not over yet. I think i'm unique. We'll go to peres next week and give them a real goal and anything can happen there in In perez next week

Pawan Dhingra, Amherst College After-School Academics in an Era of Remote Learning

"After school education is taking hold during online learning at schools. I'm dr lynn. Pascarella president of the association of american colleges and universities and today on the academic minute ponding gra professor of american studies at amherst. College wondered if it helps or hinders children now. The remote learning has become the norm peres increasingly worried that their children may not be learn as much as they can. This anxiety has fueled an already growing interest in for profit. After school tutoring companies as kumaon math nauseam and others even for children performing well in school visit. Despite many educator says that such learning can limit children that it works as educational inequality what drives parents to invest your time and money after school education. And does it make sense to do so. During my research. I spent time with more than one hundred families who pursue supplemental education for their young children and talk with teachers called emissions officers and others. I found that parents whose children are doing fine in school. Still seek out after school. Academics were to make them competitive often worried about entry to college parents. He neighboring kids in such spaces and so worried that their kids won't be able to keep up. also learned. That tutoring works better under certain conditions and that respect not all companies can provide those conditions. Instructors need to be able to connect the content children's experiences to make the children more interested. For example what's more classes are most effective was smaller tutor student. Ratios parents use outside. Learning centers should ask how those businesses incentivize learning ask for references. If she doesn't prove resistant stop you want to instill lifelong learners. So their interest is essential education landscape is changing and private companies are playing more of a role we to understand their popularity and their effects nor to create the learning environment. We want for all children. That was tallin dhingra of amherst college.

The Guy Who Did Everything Wrong But Still Figured it Out with David Pere

"Paret welcome to the bigger pockets. Money podcasts. I i talk to you today. Thanks for having me on the show. Mindy scott always a pleasure. Yeah we it's always a pleasure for scott and you're just for being on the show that was that was like a comma scott calm like always a pleasure for both of you. Okay okay probably a bad use of commas. I'm big fan of the comma. Anyway david paret is a career marine corps officer and heat. I learned about the term fire from our very own got trenched and brandon turner some schmuck who hosts another one of our podcast for bigger pockets and he learned about it in the most five way. Possible on a hike in hawaii. Why were you in hawaii david. I was stationed out there. Okay okay so. I was there for business business. Let's do some air quotes around that business although as ceo. I guess it's really convenient to go out to talk to brandon hop on clay instead of just hopping on zoom. Anyway david paret. Where does your journey with money. Begin first off for those listening. I have to correct you. I listed i am. I am not fancy and i actually say that with a badge of honor because i think that actually makes for anyone listening to this who's military that actually makes this way more Powerful because. I'm just an enlisted schmuck. So everyone thank you for correcting me. Please germany correct me. I really wanna try learning all of this military suffered. I'm just wrong all the time so sorry about that. Are you an enlisted officer or just Just an enlisted marine. He's an enlisted marine. Okay now tell us your money story. Are you on board with us using the term semper fi to describe your journey absolutely. That's an accurate statement or disrespectful to the phrase semper fi. No no it's motto. It means always faithful. So oh okay. Tell somebody already david. My money story starts off in all those same places that most service members do terrible right. I joined the marine corps in two thousand and eight. I had super frugal parents. Who did all the right things. Even to envelope budgeting. They taught me all the things you're supposed to do. Bought the off brand stuff to save money. And then i joined the marine corps. It was my first real salary. I went to japan. And i was like. Oh my god. I got money and i blew it on everything i went to a on even went on a deployment tax exempt pay. I came home with seventeen thousand dollars. And i bought a truck a rifles and tattoos a bunch of alcohol and probably took some people out on dates and have nothing to show for any of so. I did Terrible things you know by the time i was. I would have been two thousand thirteen to fourteen. When i i mean i probably had an a negative net worth and somebody handed me the book. Rich dad poor dad because they were trying to get me into Amway ride in helped me sell stuff on the side. And i remember telling the guy like no joke i was just like i don't read like you know like i'm a marine. We don't read books which is not entirely true but And he pulled a cd like out of his pocket and was like wow. I've got a cd. And i know you drive a lot on recruiting duty. So plug this in. And listen to it and i listened to it originally with the intent of like well. He called my bluff final. I'll listen to the stupid book. And then within three months. I had bought a duplex and things just started. Roll like i. I listened to that book i like. Oh wow this is cool. I downloaded audible. Listen to a couple other purple library books and then i was googling. Every time i didn't understand they just go to google. And then i stumbled upon bigger pockets and then the book on rental property investing in the book on no and low money down and then like right in the same timeframe someone got really drunk and parked on top of my harley and so they totalled my harley but they didn't want to he owned a car dealership so he didn't want he didn't wanted on insurance so he just paid me cash and then i took it to the viewership and they paid me for it and so i basically got the original price. I'd put into this bike at the same time. Like looking for a duplex and use an fha loan bought a duplex lived in one half rented the other half and then things just kind of scaled from there. So at this point. You're sitting there. And you're just becoming aware of wealth-building concept in general and it doesn't two thousand fourteen. You have basically no wealthier debt at all at that point. Yes so i guess. By the time. I read this book. It was actually probably october of two thousand fifteen. I had a little bit of debt. I mean maybe maybe a few thousand in credit card debt in an auto loan. But i didn't have. I probably didn't have a thousand dollars in the checking account so i only had you know i probably only had like a negative three or four thousand five thousand dollars net worth so. It wasn't like terrible but it was definitely nothing to show for it at all. But you were contributing to your tsp right a little bit. I had done the minimum like eight to ten percent. But what i had done. And this is the There's there's different funds right. When i first joined your money went into the fund which is government backed securities which is in perspective. I've been putting eight to ten percent. Mit because someone told me to. But between two thousand eight and two thousand fifteen. I left it in a fund that essentially earned two. Maybe three percent interest never lost money but it earned two percent interest while the rest of the stock market was earning twenty thirty percent returns coming out of the two thousand and eight recession and i just ate it so i could have way more money in their if i just know where to put it or what more money in. So it wasn't until two thousand fifteen that i really cranked up and started putting twenty thirty Last year sixty percent at one point in my in my thrift savings plan. Okay so this was not a meaningful part of your position at the time when this all started right now i probably had five grand. Dsp ray how much cash did you have at the time as well. If i hadn't totalled my or had my harley totaled basically none. I was pretty much living paycheck to paycheck. How does a harley jump. Start one's cash position. I i don't really. I don't have a perspective on. This is a motorcycle worth eight. Grand is it worth fifteen twenty. Twenty-five i i have no clue. No no no not that much. I probably got probably like eighty five hundred out of totaling. It wasn't super expensive harley and it was a few years old i've probably got about eighty five hundred but i was living missouri which is super affordable and then i was able to use the fha loans. I got into this house for like four grant. I think it was thirty. Eight hundred bucks. So you're stationed in missouri and you buy a duplex and can you walk us through kind of how the housing allowance and all that kind of stuff works for those who are not familiar with military benefits just so we can get a a total picture of your position at this. Starting point. pleasant fifteen yeah. I i think in springfield. My housing allowance was like eight hundred and fifty dollars a month and the housing allowances tax exempt. So it's you don't pay any taxes but actually counts as a little bit more As far as debt to income goes towards your lender. I think it's like one point two five times. Whatever your housing allowance cost when you go to buy. But at the time i was living in an apartment and there's like five fifty a month for a two bed one bath apartment and my lease was coming up on and do so. I was able to get into this place. I bought the duplex for eighty. One thousand my mortgage was six fifteen and there was attended one side for four seventy five Market rent was like five fifty. So i was like okay. Well this could. this could work nothing else. I'm going to be paying one hundred and whatever that math is one hundred forty dollars a month out of pocket for the mortgage as opposed to the five fifty. I was paying on rent. And i probably should've used the. Va loan on that but nobody knows anything about the va. Loan and the lender actually told me not to because he told me quote unquote you can only use it once which is wrong air so much confusion around the va loan. I hope that somebody someday we'll sit down with a really great lender and talk all about the. Va loan and if they have already it would be awesome to link to that in the show notes because the va loan is only applicable to who service members veterans Some federal employees but generally just service members and veterans. Okay so that's not necessarily all of our audience. But i think it's really important to note that you can use it more than once you can use it a lot more than once. You can use it as many times as you want. There's some stipulations there. Because you have to renew the eligibility and after two or three times it gets kind of kind of convoluted but you can the first time you can use it. There's no limit on it anymore. So you can go and buy. There's a guy. I don't wanna knock on wood right now. There's a guy under contract on a triplex for one point. Six million dollars in the bay area right now that we're we're helping and he's going to basically move into this thing zero down and he's high income earner out of the military veteran and in the medical field so he's got a good day but he's gonna pay zero down get like two and a quarter two and a half percent interest on this thing and his tenants are essentially going to pay the mortgage and then he's going to be on the hook for maintenance repairs.

Here's The Deal With The United Center Vaccination Site In Chicago

"Let's start with governor pritzker. This is what he had to say today about. The vaccine roll out in illinois has neighboring michigan announces. That it will open. Vaccinations everybody starting. In april as we have promised here in illinois and as we have been promised by the federal government that we would reach one hundred thousand doses per day by the middle of march. We've arrived mike flannery. The president says everybody's going to be eligible by may first governor pritzker says we're game here in illinois. Do you believe it i do. I think they the after a rough start. I talk peres. Says a guy who went around to the walmart and cvs is and the to supercenter over one hundred eighth woodland asking. Have you got any leftover back. Seen vaccines for the poor. Things have really gotten a lot better. I've got both my doses of the pfizer vaccine. I think this thing is finally on track. And i see mike flannery down there in beverly get your green tie in the irish flag. You're getting ready for a certain holiday in a few weeks. Megan hickey there's been a lot of confusion at the united center about who exactly has been eligible. The city has changed. Its eligibility standards because so many folks from outside of chicago or signing up as of now who is eligible to get the vaccine at the united center right now. They're still in the one. A one b Young people within the city limits and really the rules changed in the middle of the game because obviously when people started signing up it was a much broader eligibility than that and that was honestly source of a lot of confusion over the weekend and even into monday and tuesday because you know the the eligibility requirements changed in a lot of the people who maybe were outside of chicago who had signed up. Were confused they do. What does my appointment still count. If i go there you know my still going to be able to get my second dose. Are they going to say good luck. Find it somewhere else so there were just a lot. We were getting a lot of confusion about that and you know that on top of some scheduling issues. People getting error messages when they were trying to sign up. You know saying oh no actually. Your appointments been rescheduled and then another email saying disregard that that email was was not It's not accurate so meghan or those. Yeah i'm still ongoing. Or if they have the iron those out we're hearing less you know less confusion about it. I'm i'm not certain that it's been entirely ironed out. I know we asked how many people got error messages. How many people were involved in that which we never actually got a hard number on that but just being out there. I was at the united center. Monday on tuesday monday. Even before you know nations had started a lot of people were complaining about that. But i will say once. They made their way through the vaccination processing came out on the other end. They were so grateful and hopeful and almost had forgotten that they were so Set before they had gone into. Get their shot in greg pratt part of this roll out. The city says now they will be reaching out to the hardest hit zip codes to urge people to come to the united center to get their vaccination. Is that helping at all. drive up the equity numbers. Yeah i think so. I think the making it eligible for neighborhoods like south shore little villages. Ellison is is clearly going to drive that up there are people from those neighborhoods who are signing up for it I think that that's been very helpful. That was major problem in the beginning. It's less of a problem but it's probably one of those things that without more. Without ongoing targeting an ongoing efforts aimed at reaching those communities can very easily all off. Which would be bad. So it's so it's so they're they're working consciously work on an and that's probably a good thing

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations

"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

Paris Hilton Shocked By Sarah Silverman's Apology

"To day on daily pop years after insulting paris hilton. Sarah silverman is shocking. Her again. This time with an apology. Sarah made crude sexual joke about perez at the two thousand seven. Mtv awards and turns out she regretted it immediately. Check out what she said on the sarah silverman podcast while i was thrilled at the success of my monologue I remember spiting her in the audience. I really do and my heart sank and a couple of days later. I her a letter apologizing. I felt awful. And i never heard back. I certainly wouldn't expect to anyway. I regretted the jokes not years later but kind of immediately so here i am fourteen years later telling you paris that i am really sorry. I was that a hot meal alert going off. That's what it sounded like. The series was on. I think it really felt extremely sincere to me. I mean sarah was talking all about how she's made lots of jokes in the past that she's regretted but at the same time. I do appreciate your honesty. In saying that was the time and i've grown since then and i really hope people have obviously seen that i've grown and really changed the way that i do jokes. I do comedy. And i wanna point out that. What i think is really good about this apology was. She wasn't trying to make excuses and a lot of times people are like. Oh my gosh. She was trying to make excuses but she literally said like you said like people have to give me a chance and everyone else the chance to grow with the times and what i loved the most was. She said that she regretted that joke. Soon as it came out of her mouth and then she wrote her. The following day in a letter never doctor first of all we doing that was in two thousand and seven seven. She wrote a letter and as a comic. I get it. You're doing your jokester. you're onstage. You're not really you can't really see the audience. And she said as soon as the joke came out. You know she sees this. She's an audience but as a comic. You can't take a joke back. you gotta commit. You're gonna lead though in there because there's three thousand people watching you you know you're gonna take the ale later so i understand. She felt bad. I've been in that position before. And i've gone out immediately. Tried to apologize. I was like can you tell him you know no. They're like what ahead out is not happening. So the fact that she wrote a letter immediately but a letter is a little weird to peres actually phone a phone call. I get the letter but you gotta pick up the phone to assistant to say here. See he really would have loved to have some letters of grizzly win. She wrote the letter. But i mean she pairs went to jail that night so i it's believable that the letter never made it to her because absolutely

"We'll stop in the bundesliga. We thought no leipzig get thrown away. The opportunity to keep pushing by munich. There were two knelt down halftime against borussia moenchengladbach but a brilliant second half performance and a late goal from soil with see them beat god back by three goals to to to continue to put the pressure on bind at the top of the table. Janocko fuel itself is with us yet. Thank goodness we still have a title race. Just thank goodness to halftime. There was so many analyzes marker also sorting out gladbach. There will be calm now before he takes over. And then livesey made the bundesliga excited for two minutes with the irony at halftime. But thank god. Thank god for everybody. Neutral love love the bundesliga. There was fantastic. Second half of our show and they slowly came back. Glad back more tired had some chances on contracts but policy and kuku and solo there so many attackers. It's lives. You haven't score enough goals after chicken and van left them after last season but they produce tonight and we haven't excitement we have. We have a tight race in germany. Dan could you imagine. Say those words. I know i don't know very much unlikely. After the to say bad in the first half. Yeah yeah their web bad but but say having said that. I mean they had a ball the lot. They didn't create a lot gluck. Unbelievable efficient mcconnell had one of those half where look like the most clumps defender being around after being the most attractive defender around and toronto and half on peres demanded to nil and everything look like well typical vion after their gala show earlier on the day and now we have this situation fribourg against lives on friday if they win that top of the league at least for twenty four hours then the big game between via munich endorsements says you mentioned yance still two point separates vine and live sick. Let's switch attention to that wind show for buying a day. They were certainly facts that the way this game ended you. They could just keep scoring. Every few minutes on the will keep on scoring. I mean live on dose keno. Getting closer to that magic gaffe miller torty goals in a season scoring two goals today but there was a whole wasn't ed when they played their home three three losing in frankfurt against eintracht. And then they're back to the norm. Winning high in champions league winning five one against cologne. it's not like five or six goals better than them on the page but they just so efficient gerrad sky. Think a ended up with three assists. Today nabu just scoring for fun. Uneven ship matang scoring so i mean by will be all the way of the understatement of the nights at just into content main if levin dusky reaches at forty gaumont. It's unbelievable because then you compare yourself with the best goal Of all time and yes you could say the by a munich was fantastic. But you can say the same about this team. I mean we are talking about whole on emba- pay silva or were all these goalscoring sensations around europe the moment but levin dose gays to complete striker but the the goal getter part of his game is unbelievable to he's hungry and passionate for goals is unbelievable and you saw the way to the goals. Today you had a you finally got. Thomas miller on to fourteen seconds to make an assist for him. I just turned around. He knows all the time where where he is on the full patriots and if he beats the record i still doubted but he's getting closer meanwhile bruce feldman turning on in the second half in proved to be a comfortable win in the end. I'll tell you what twenty twenty one jaden sanitary. It's very different than twenty. Two thousand nine hundred and sounds like christmas press the reset. Button is incredible. Twenty twenty cents show. At least the half of it was very influenced with all that happened around us some monsters united being on the phone all the time. Hundred and twenty million hundred million europe but now he's on fire and the way he's playing at the moment he's playing with all his strength all the passionate he's running all the time he's body. Language is turn like hundred and eighty degrees unbelievable. I also today. I a writer who scored that goal. And i think that that sums up the way dole put his playing at the moment ailing all on. I'm not sorry. Putting in northern region after solo scored for for leipzig later tonight. But but then allen all on one against one against goalkeeper typically get up. We'll try himself. Just give it the ball away. And i think that sums up that door at the moment. They won three games in a row. Intense being under pressure as being a lame duck after the appointment of mark but they are back on track another only three points behind eintracht frankfurt for that very very valuable champions league place for they make it. Yeah yes. I think they will. Because i don't think well eleven games eintracht frankfurt had and with no losses i winston role. Then losing it to to bremen and as long as they can keep on winning these kind of games which has been difficult for them. They're lower teams like being felt today. They will keep on doing it but mind you next game. It's frankfurt against got. That could be a frankford. Win on there and Munich and then we can have that six points again. Because volts berg are winning games just like behind everybody under the radar of everybody of body so they could end up taking place in the bundesliga

How we can climate-proof the power grid

"We climate proof our energy infrastructure going forward. This week's blackouts are just the latest example of how vulnerable are grits are two more extreme climate change driven weather events. She nazi is an assistant. Professor at purdue university school of industrial engineering hierachy welcome to climate. Cast thank you so much for having me. Start at this with compassion. Millions of our fellow americans without power heat water food even gas in subfreezing temperatures with that in mind. We much colder winters here. In minnesota than texas and our power grid is very reliable here in the winter. Why did the energy infrastructure in texas fail so tragically this week so it's not so much about the absolute values of the temperature. Right it's more about your region has been historically you still is just the fact that the temperatures really caught them by surprise. But i wouldn't say that. This story is unique to tax us. Well so on that point. Extreme cold isn't the only weather events challenging our grids. What other ways does climate change impact power so if you look on the power outage data collected by the department of energy but you can easily see First of all severe weather and climate events have been the major culprits for the large-scale sustain. Outages if you look at the data from early two thousands you see that there's actually been a three fold increase in the frequency and intensity of major power outages and exactly to your point. You know these extreme events can range from cold snaps to heat waves two hurricanes the wildfires. I mean there's no shortage of unfortunately You know natural disasters that hit our greg. So what are the best practices in hardening electric grids to climate change and extreme weather events. So there is really a number of different solutions. one micro-credits grids. They've been shown to have a positive impact on the overall resilience of the region during disasters Peres undergrounding some of the key. Assets and leveraging the techniques that we've already developed for other for seeing you know the impact on not only demand or physical infrastructure but also supply capacity prior to the onset of events roshii for people who aren't familiar. What are the benefits of micro grids so for example right now. What we're seeing in texas They're not able to balance the note right. So with micro grid not only it can alleviate note from the overall grid and allow the busing to happen a little bit more easily but also can sort of provides energy to stop off the customers trying to get to the source of what happened in texas and why it doesn't happen in other places right. Some people trying to falsely blame frozen wind turbines for power loss in texas but natural gas coal nuclear infrastructure accounted for eighty seven percent of the loss of generating capacity there. This week renewables just about thirteen percent is overall the shift to renewable also improving resilience. Absolutely there is plenty of evidence adds diversity and moving more towards renewables and distributed resources. Just improve the overall resilience not to mention the sustainability outcomes. Right while i'm grateful to everyone who plans and delivers energy to our homes than this week. So a big. Thank you to everybody who does that. She nateghi assistant professor at purdue university school of engineering. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective on climate cast. Today thank you so much for having me. I really enjoyed speaking with you today.

"Candidate's welcome to macabre. Chagas will thank you so much fun. Thank you so much for having me. I'm looking forward to chatting with you this evening. Yeah i This is one that. I love as well because i have been i remember. I remember following your work when you first start creating. bq h. and i dislike i. You know i'm a researcher. So a researcher of consciousness. And i will try a lot. Different modalities to see if it matches up to my understanding of buddhism to see if peres for 'cause there's nothing new under the sun we just we discover it in different ways and i i get that and so. That's why the things that i bring to. The podcast at the followers of buddhism is that there's many ways to bake a cake and always are Can be delightful. And we're all going to you that make that beautiful cake at some point in our creation. So that i'm always curious and so i followed. Bq actions beginning but because it offered remote and it was competing with other modalities offered in person. It didn't get as much steam as it has. Says the pandemic for obvious reasons because we're all kind of stuck in our homes and not really in front or near each other as much as we were and so when that came through Then i was compelled to go okay. Let's try again and i did. The course i refresh my understanding of it and the minute. I opened my practice up for remotes. I had people from china from all over the world. Hit me going fine. You're doing so now they could try a whole nother modality and and now it is. It's finally gotten the opportunity to be recognized and exercise but a lot of people in this space to be just as valid as the other modalities and so it just needed an opportunity and ironically the pandemic gave it that beautiful platform and it proved to be true so before we dig into work. Please tell us how you got into this work. In the first place well they're here gail the origination story. So i wasn't planning on any of this really. I was a wife and a mother. I my focus was arts and horse an animals and I wasn't planning on getting into this work at all. But it's similar in my life. Probably around the year two thousand. But even before then i started to have a chronic pain condition and i did what most people i knew would do is head to the doctor. Ask questions when. I got a lot of shoulder. Shrugging am. I got a lot of pills handed to me. And none of them works. And i wasn't terminally ill or anything like that. I didn't have From the outside. Nobody could really tell that. I was suffering and because i did everything just about that i could possibly do. It was painful to to do it. And i had just different things going on with me And i was doing some professional taga fy with horses down in austin texas am i had arranged what was then going to be. My biggest photo shoot was doing an album cover for a country and western singer and it was his third album our second together and i just created this really huge photo. Shoot a really big one with lights in the set and it took six months of planning in the morning of the shoot. I couldn't get out of bed because of pain and a lot of people have different kinds of dark nights of the soul. And for me that kind of was because i had to pick the phone and call everybody and call off because I couldn't get out of bed and i. I really felt defeated by my own body at that time and I laid in bed. And i did something that i might not have ever done before. Kind of prayed almost into a stupor. I prayed myself into a stupor. I was just i kind of it. Didn't know what else to do. I didn't know what else to do. And i changed the way i was asking source. God you know. Rachel's whatever i. I changed the way i was asking so rather than please help mayor Helped us stop or you know those kinds of feelings and words. My focus was. I'm not sure what else i'm supposed to do. I've done everything that. I know how to do to take care of myself and i don't know what else to do. What am i. What am i supposed to do about this and as soon as change the answer to that question. I actually have a spontaneous supernatural experience. I left my body. And i found myself standing in a beautiful feel a version of which i lived by anyway in our ranch in texas small little ranch north of austin and i had these light beings stand up from a semicircle and the one in the center literally handed me a piece of paper new piece of paper at high took the piece of paper and i looked at it and i read Three things on this piece of paper number one number two number three and It can get really involved.

"First topic for discussion today. Something actually we chat about quite regularly last year. But i haven't had the chance to go in depth on the costs over the christmas and new year break. I'm not reports driver lineup. Now of course we now know that. Sergio perez has been signed to partner. Max for slapping while. Alex album is team last year. And so the second half of two thousand nine hundred has been made. The team's reserve driver album also compete in the revamped. Dm category in twenty. Twenty ways efan commitments. Allow this and we understand. He'll be driving a ferrari. Four eight eight. Gt three alongside rebel genius liam northern. How big a hit. The think being mighty back to reserve driver an out formula one in terms of racing for at least a you know a whole calendar year. How do you think that how big hit that. he's f f one ambitions. yes he can. I think that it is so different when we saw by pierre gasoline daniel via meet similar fight when they were sent back to toro rosso and that them released the chance kind of rebuild that career and keep racing in athlon keeps it of all not rada christine made clear a few weeks folded station and the end of the season. That if alvin didn't get a rebel safe next year he will be our. Beth won't completely on on the sidelines. Although the team has said he's gonna be undertaken an extensive testing and development program with a view to twenty twenty. Eight doesn't really give much of a chance to actually sort of show.

Dtm series with the gt three rules that they're updating ultimately not raced in ten tops. Ever i don't think so. I think that's going to be a big change for him and yeah i think it's just a it's it is a real big sat back and i think the full red bull i think just got say i don't really see what he goes from hits bonus nothing gets allows useful. Okay he's going to be playing such a big role in that too much to development. I think unless peres absolutely stinking year in that say realistically red bull going to be looking out. But if someone's come back with twenty twenty because are they need. Wii the perez goes beyond the initial one year contract.

Can we build 15-minute cities where we live?

The Big Story

Can we build 15-minute cities where we live?

"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Alex zekovic is a staff columnist and the architecture critic at the global mail. Hello alex hey jordan. Why don't we start. I was gonna say with a simple definition. But but maybe it's not that simple. But what is the fifteen minutes city. Where does the concept come from. And what does it describe. So the idea is actually an old idea It goes back at least fifty years in the world of city planning and really it hearkens back to previous models of cities built before the car and the basic idea. Is that everything you need for. Daily living is within walking distance of your home so the idea is not a new one. The rhetoric or the phrase of fifteen minutes city was popularized by the mayor of paris. Over the last few years. I need. I'll go Because she is interested in pursuing the fifteen minutes city returning peres into as much as possible. A fifteen minute city so. This is kind of a familiar idea. That has fresh relevance today. How do you define it for analysis purposes. When you're looking to see whether a certain city or neighborhood would qualify so there are a bunch of different definitions of the term and the one that paris uses actually includes workplaces or generally tries to include workplaces with other things. If you include workplaces this becomes a little bit trickier because trying to find to link up. Everyone's home and everyone's workplace in a large city is very complex. The more familiar and lord sort of less controversial definition is that you have the necessities of daily living within walking distance of home for the article. I did for the global mail with some colleagues a little while ago. We used a measurement called amenity density developed by statistics canada and see 'em each see and that defines it as having a grocery store a pharmacy and a public transit stop within one kilometer and having a daycare a primary school and a library within one and a half kilometers. And then there's a larger circle for health facility and larger circle for places of employment. So you know the least the most straightforward way is to say you know. Pick up a prescription go shopping. Be able to catch a bus or train. You should be able to do all of this things within roughly a ten minute walk of where you are. Why is that set up so desirable. I'm sorry if that sounds like an obvious question but just you know what does it impact. Well yeah i mean it is. It sounds really straightforward. Because when we think of our cultural ideas of what a city is or how people should live. I mean you. Think of sesame street It seems easy but the fact is that most people in north america don't have that at all. I mean the large majority of people in canada as is also true in the united states live in what planners will call car oriented suburbs or car-oriented places. If you have that then you know you. Effectively are limited to being able to survive comfortably to having a car. If you don't have a car to available to do those basic things you know your life becomes much more complex you effectively become a second class citizen and this is obviously -cations for youth and teenagers. It has obvious implications for anyone with disabilities And and there's a strong overlap of course between people with disabilities and seniors but You know this is a very large in growing issue for many canadians. Many north americans. Who are egypt in places where they need to have cars and may not always be able to

The inferno is being treated by the f. as medical crew. You played a vital part. And he's escape from the fire. Gordon was taken to the track's medical center and was then airlifted hospital from which he was assessed to suffered no broken bones but does have burns to his hands and ankles goes without saying we wish him well in his recovery and express our sincere relief at seeing him survived the accident after delay of one hour and twenty minutes is the barriers were repaired actually replace concrete blocks the race restarted with another great start. Concern was able to regain easily lead away things quickly. Boil down to a two horse race between the mercedes driver. Invest happen with how it's appearing to have things under control. The second stint was the biggest moment of danger of hamilton match. Step up in space on the hearts or looking after he'd softer mediums. They both ended up on the hard after their second stops after which for stopping closed in despite his own stop being a slow one but he never got within three seconds of the mercedes driver up from rebel in fact opted to pit the doctrine for a third time. Giving you had a large gap in hand over sergio perez behind peres was in third of the voucher tacit made a poor start and slipped backwards at town one which had paid to spark a series of smaller incidents that ended later crash which is of course not to say that there was any blame any of them peres done a fine job to run alex album in the second way boat and he looked set for a second successive podium until his engine let go with four laps remaining the race therefore finished under safety car hamilton.

You could talk us through the first thought and ended up the crash at the end of it. I could almost look through a transcript of whatsapp messages. Couldn't i is Yeah it wasn't very pleasant work actually a a not particularly nice to at the time given that we began the price s Before we knew what happens actually to out and before we okay we were starting to pick over some of the details leading up to the accident and and like you say it's it's one of those shunts is an accumulation of snow events and people doing things that builds towards a conclusion and and it does start with valerie. Batas having a slough guess away. He seemed to get away. When the lights went out he go to wipe perfectly well but then in the second phase acceleration not so much He wasn't the person off. Com was slough away was passed by morrison and gas lay album perez and then ricardo got passed batas. And that just meant that. You had this situation wearing bahrain. Three calls can go through taiwan abreast. Really won't you can get through ten to breast so that that's an. That's a natural funnel point that sort of vestibule between two warm an intern take so so you had basically people sorting things out with each other just just looking at my notes this squeezes all the way down the field and so i you have lewis getting a clean gas away. The stepan going through as well and then album sort of makes it stick and get through and you have ricardo an album sort of alongside each other and sorting out between themselves. That causes potus to slightly cheque's pace. Maybe a little bit through through turn to and then further back you have squeezes. You have leclerc veterans stroll who are also three abreast through san juan clerk. Poor gas away and then sent for a deeply into turn one see. Have an awful lot of people who are trying to make up ground. Having got a poor start so you have the situation where bats seems to be a little bit. As as album gets ahead of riccardo norris taps ghastly science has to get out of the throttle to avoid that squeeze with with with having to check up ahead of him vattel. Who's then arriving. Kind of three abreast with strollers rights. The clerk and his right has to check very hard to avoid running into the back of what's ahead of him. Hey jinx right stroll goes rights and then creates a scenario where. There's a lot of slow moving traffic and grow. John arrives at that scene. Say's all those costs loving ahead. You have reichen going off track on the left in an attempt to go around the so the slow moving cars and i think garage unnaturally in the heat of the moment goes to the right May be of either forgetting or not observing the caveat. He's five o'clock almost an caveat sunny there because he's been in a squeeze with with the alfa romeo's he's been slide down because he's had pretty much guy over the apex turn to avoid clunking into magnusson. If if if my notes reflect this accurately so all circumstances kind of build into into what we saw happen of very very fiery accident and one that was very scary indeed it was becomes. Talk about the really terrifying. The copying on fire grudge having to escape the inferno league. I wonder if we could just come to you. What is the latest information. We have at the time of recording about jones conditioning hospital so gross on as seen on the world fit.

"Today with my guest will be looking back on what life and the fashion scene was like in new york city in the nineteen eighty s and discussing legendary black american designer woody smits he's brand winnie way is currently in exhibition dedicated to his work.

SEO Project Implementation Process With Cassie Dell

"Cassie happy hump. Day, and welcome back to the voices of search podcast aid that how are you? I'm doing great excited to continue to talk with you about some Seo workflows book could be more fun exactly. So cassie so far this week we've talked about getting your research done understanding who you're trying to reach what you're doing to make sure that your seo efforts make an impact and then set your strategies and selling them up the chain eventually hopefully, your strategies get approved, then it's time to make the rubber meets the road when you're going through and thinking about project implementation, how are you setting up a workflow to make sure that your project goals are clear that you're executing your milestones and that you're driving business results? So, now that we have that comprehensive list I, mean there's a pretty big balance between are we tracking everything correctly looking at desktop mobile? Is there any locations other storefronts are given surrounding cities that we need to track is a list of terms comprehensive is it tagged well, things like that. So just making sure the foundation that project is staffer success is the most important bar. Think about keyword optimization here I not necessarily technical optimization and what you're doing is you're making sure that when you're implementing your project, you're gonNA have data segmented in a way where it's easy for you to understand what's happening is it my you know P- product key words is it my brand keywords right? You're going through and creating sort of tagged list to be able to cut your data by variables. Is there a similar process when you're doing technical projects in theory you would think about things and segregate them into individual groups but they that I'm working on. Schema update for van working on page. All of those are going to have their individual subcategories beneath them. All of that should be segmented in tagged and Peres ordinarily. Yes it's all working towards the same goal. It's nice to have a general direction just like we do with keyword dragging. Talk me about setting your milestones and just understanding how your projects are being implemented rolled out tracks whether they're completed. You know, is there a process or workflow that you're following to get through creation publishing evaluation? Walked me through the workflow that you're going through. When you're thinking about implementing. Let's say a content project. So for content, always like to make sure that there's at least a baseline that we actually see that growth happen. So especially, content objects. For example, if we're looking at something and saying, we know we're going to produce twenty articles I like to see where it was before we start to produce these so that as time goes along I, could see how it's performing months one month to month three when it peaks and find that data and say I have a general understanding of how my website will perform as I add content in different segments across. All right a step one, you're gonNA create a baseline. Assuming that step two is you're doing some prep to roll out the project whether it's your content creation your code if it's a tactical project, is that step to where you're actually kind of building the deliverables. Stephan Elliott have the templates that all the contents ready were ready to publish. That's really that step of kind of just doing the last minute polishes and making sure it's optimized for what our goals are. Talking about the publication timing. So I'm assuming step three is publication than talked me about publication timing and how you basically set the like line in the sand of here is our pre evaluation stage where we're setting a baseline than here's one were implementing your changes are he tried to roll everything out at one doing a phased approach? Depends on what kind of content I mean folks are editing maybe product details pages because it's such a small amount of content we can roll it out in bulk. If it's a big word, they're trying to build evergreen insubstantial content that's always going to be the backbone of the website it comes in stages. That's where that keyword and term as it can happen because bursts kind of going after content that's going to get us the biggest thing for up and then gradually working through that stage, and now going to be that longer dovetail of we expect contents, GonNa get a lot more traffic and insight in a very long period of time versus a quick win.

"Harry Maguire managers are get booked twice in the space of half an hour reese James Manages to get sent off after the final whistle and England lose at home to Denmark. Chose Maguire's having a rough time. Do you blame him or do you blame the managers who keep playing him? To start. Button, ready with United Against Peres I thought that was even worse with England on on Wednesday night I mean why is going on? There's a second yellow card he tackles with his left foot right-footed. Like maybe I don't know. But even just defy. Logic of anything and he's just I think he needs a break. I think you need to stop playing for a while. I think just needs to refocus reenergize just just having breakfast just stop do something. To do something bit, don't play with united at the weekend against to. Surly doppler with united. against. Chelsea and Aston, which are the next to. Premier League. I think it could get worse. Okay. But I agree with you on the wire but should we be called? I know we all love Gary Southgate because he's not very nice guy you don't like him. Till you're going to blame him as well for. What Clearly you can see that. Lacks confidence lacks form likes pretty much everything. Much much fitness sharpness everything what you play him was you pay me in the game night. This were already you were not good against bedroom, for example and not. Even McGuire and then you play in a game like this again I i. think you need a break I think everybody can see it and I just hope you get say for his own sake I will say this about southgate because we're seeing the same film that unwound with every single previous in England coach. Everybody jumped on the bandwagon. So great it's love show good whether at the time was competitor happened with hearts and Ericsson and then all of a sudden they turn on him and totally go the other way.

Or do they go to the courthouse and change the name because? Sylvia Jolie. Reporting from. Reporting Right Okay, so you know you're you've moved from the law to. A different path to teaching your settled in Charlotte Adjusting Wales. You're listening to the voices of NPR. You, trust these voices that you listen to which kind of leads to. This idea of truth. That you explore to when your podcast. In fact, the next couple rates here are going to deal with. Truth Happiness and virtue okay. So what inspired this particular Esa more that deals with truth and humanities. I was interviewing Charlie Albertson, and if you know Charlie, he works at reward and he is a marketing executive. And he spends his day excavating and clarifying what a company wants to say their brand. And the questions he asks are really about. How people are moved emotionally encountering a product or service. And the questions really are absolutely similar to the same questions that the humanities ask as disciplined. What is it mean to be human? What is it that we respond to? How are we wired to make sense of our lives? And as a child of the liberal arts as a child of humanity's. That's what I thought about when I was inspired by Charlie. And that's what you wrote about so if you'll start right there. I'm a humanist. I studied humanities. The humanities asked the question. What does being human mean? It seeks the truth of being human. The humanities, history, philosophy, religion, language, literature, and the arts record. Our answers to that question answers that are always true in revealing something about ourselves. My love for the amenities was planted early in life as I listened to. My Dad tells stories of Nineteenth Century Jewish merchants who emigrated to the Amazon jungle? The Love was tended by public. School Teachers New York. Who Read T S?

The humanities ask why we are here. And what to make of pride and despair, the humanities glorify and challenge our earthly vanities as the skull of Poor York did for Hamlet. The humanities howl at. Headed hipsters who burn for ancient heavenly connections to the story dynamos of the night. And they give hope to skywalking heroes who fly into the depth of death stars. So mark that's a very poetic and his listening to that and thinking about all the people that you interviewed including people that are in business I wonder how many times during the day they had the chance to sit and reflect. On these kind of things, and and yet this podcast you do. kind of what you're. You're forcing them to do right I mean not forcing them, but you're sitting down and giving them. I guess the privilege to sit there and think about these broader questions while the privilege was mind certainly, but yes, I do think that in our hearts we all want to have these conversations we go about our lives and have to manage the challenges of the day and living in the twenty first century and paying our bills. But in our hearts at two o'clock in the morning we're staring at the ceiling. There's something more primal, an essential going on, and and my job was to do my best to express that poetically. Some mark we're GonNa get to some Some other ways that people can you know? Make sense out of the of their lives, but a Lotta Times people think about. How can it be happy you know? I can have a fulfilled life And Happiness hedonistic was happy to something else, and so you actually wrote an essay. About the well, happiness is a topic in a module in this course that I teach called the good life. But in this instance I was having a conversation with Geiger who is a leadership, organizational advisor and counselor. And consultant and we were talking about how she works with organizations to make sure that they operate more effectively and invariably happy employees came up for discussion. And so it was in that context that I wrote these words, key strategies for happiness include being inflow flow is absorption in one's work that is a perfect blend of challenge and skill. Creative insight is heightened and time flies by having more flowing. Our lives makes us happier. Another strategy for being happy is practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness is being in the present moment. It is fully attending to what is happening both outside us, and within us we are alert to the sensations, our minds and bodies we become more mindful through conscious intention and movement, a third strategy for being happy as learned optimism, the idea of learned optimism is that we can cultivate resilience and empowerment. We can practice replacing negative self talk with positive thoughts and behaviors. We gain a greater internal sense that we can control events and outcomes. Like that mark being in the flow mouth on this and also. This idea of optimism being an optimist. Well I don't know if people say monopoly optimist club member for for many years, the first lounge creative, which is promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind so there you go. That's a good way store well. Okay now. You know you can't happiness. without having some meaning and purpose to your life right and you talk about this concept of virtue which are going to do a short read on before the break here that topic came up when you were interviewing carol hardest on a believe Todd Essay Life of care and virtue.

"I work to earn that and deserve that every day. Being a dad is why I believe I was given a second. Excuse me it's hard for me. I can't even get emotional is why I believe on. I'm here and so I try to be super super present for them I try to eat healthy when I can and I mean I don't WanNA open that. Can of worms your diet during the man until poppy phases. Insane yeah it was really out of control and it was really unhealthy and could have killed me just as quickly as the addiction could've microwaving Ben and Jerry's ice cream and just chugging right from the right from the container so yeah I try to be try to be healthy man and I try to stay small. You know I try to to to to be really good with with with living like a good small life and a friend of mine. Laura McCowan has recently written a memoir called. We are the luckiest and this chapter in there where she talks about sitting down with someone else in recovery who've been an old timer you know she's new and fucking miserable and missing her old life and she sits down at this restaurant and with this. I. How like what's your life like today and I'm completely bastardising. Beautiful this chapter in her book but and this woman says I have a nice little life and at first lars like who wants that. You know I have a nice little life now and I'm so thank you for that Laura and I'm I'm you know I'm good beautiful in writing the book who were like you know. There's a whole genre of addiction yarns out there like some good some not so good like I would imagine like boroughs. He will say when I was writing the book. I stayed away from them. Because I didn't want to be overly influenced in any way be influenced by what I was reading. And so I- purposely kept kept away from them that said it. There are people that have written quite beautifully about about addiction and about recovery And and certainly guston boroughs is one of those people I think. Guston has done it also with great humor which is which I which I think is important But there's there's there's so many great works out. There they have a car I think did it masterfully and there are others. Mary car there are many others. And what was the motivation in writing this book? Now I mean you've been sober for a while at this point like how did this come about. I had heard of all of the vast riches that befall offers the ultimate. Get Rich Quick Scheme. Exactly I just. I felt like I had stories to share. If for no other reason I wanted to just put them down on paper to to to share with my kids. One day I started writing them and and it turned into a book. I think I think it's I think it's really important for people to just know that there's a path out and I am when I was actively using I would look at these books and I would hear stories. I remember really quite vividly being an active addict. And like just being zonked out on pills and like sitting on my sofa with probably like a cigarette like burning down to my knuckles you know and you know empty Ben and Jerry's containers around the it wasn't pretty and watching like on some entertainment TV show tonight or something like that like this celebrity like going into Rehab and I remember thirty days later sitting on that Sofa I had moved but it would look like I hadn't And and seeing the report soanes out of Rehab and you know you know openly publicly addressing for the first time you know there. There are new recovery and thinking. Oh my God like I could have done it in these thirty of time where you had move I could. I could have done it. I would feel worse and worse about myself. You know because I wanted to stop. I was ready. I was desperate. Stop so my point is I think. People sharing their their stories helps. It didn't help get me off that couch. It didn't help me from. Stop me from going to getting the next series of prescriptions. But the seed. Yeah it was a domino and in that process right so if my book can can be that for someone. I think that's important. I also think that it's important for people that don't know that that haven't lived with it or been exposed to it through a family member or loved one just to see a glimpse into what what it looks like and so that that was part of the motivating factor also like. Hey take a look at. How awful this can get and try to understand that this is this is really all consuming and this book will give you a glimpse of that well with one hundred and thirty people dying every single day from this. Very condition None of us are more than one or two people away from somebody who is currently suffering from the so the time is now for this conversation more than ever and the need for solutions begins with understanding and understanding. Means you know wrapping your head around the experience of what it is like to endure something like this so I applaud you for writing the book and I think the best way to land this plane is to have you kind of speak to the addict who perhaps is listening right now. That person who might be on the couch was Ben and Jerry's Containers listening to this but Unsure about what that first step looks like. I think that that I it looks like acknowledging that you are an addict and for me. I struggled with that for a long time and then I eventually acknowledged that I was an addict while I was still using and I used for a while longer after that but to acknowledge I mean. It's it's really simplify it to annul acknowledge powerlessness over over this addiction. There's nothing that you it's not going to go away on its own. You need to step up and say okay. I'm I'm I'm ready. You have to be ready and you have to step forward and say I'm ready. I think that's the most important first step is to acknowledge it and to and to reach out and ask for help. You don't have to do it publicly. You don't have to tweet about it or post about it but you should reach out for help because you cannot do it. Alone is incredibly difficult to do it alone and everybody tries I. Yeah try into until they realize it's not gonNA work so so my advice to that person would be okay. Let's own this. This is where you are and let's ask for help because help is there. And I was was welcomed into a community of people into the recovery community in ways that I never ever thought would would have been possible and just the pure realization that your situation is not unique right. Like there's this idea like that whatever your enduring and suffering is is is something that no other human being could possibly understand. That's that's a fact right that you're you're there and you're you're thinking to yourself. I understand that people get sober from this. I understand people have done it but no one is as bad off as I am. And you know it hasn't gotten this bad with anyone else on the face of the earth and so it's pointless for me to step forward and say okay. I'm going to go ahead and take some action here and that's just absolute bullshit. Right we are run of the Mill Garden Variety. Diamond dozen drug addicts. Whether or not you know like. That's what's at the core of my book. Quite frankly is that. There's all this weird crazy stuff. I had access to all of these people and and David Copperfield. And you're the ultimate like. Don't you know who I think I am and this mash up of of like sort of an over inflated ego with massive insecurity absolutely? That's precisely what I was but at its core. I'm I'm a I'm a common drug addict and and it's an incredibly common story and and there is a path out but no-one else can put you on that path. You have to be willing to say. Okay I'm ready. Sort of start my walk down this path and no one can say for you. I can't say it for you. Parents can save for your wives children. Husbands it just. It's not going to happen until you're ready to say all right. Let's do this right. And so what about the person who's listening? Who has that person in their life that suffering and they feel powerless to help that person? I mean I get tons of emails like this like I don't know what to do my spouse my boyfriend my girl. I get a lot of those emails and it's like you you kind of spoke to it already. It's it's about willingness and willingness is something that you cannot compel in another individual short of their willingness. You're Pretty Limited. And how you can you know. Show up for somebody in this situation you are. It's it's it's an awful position to be in to watch someone that you love and care about. You know slowly kill themselves because that's precisely what's happening and worse here them. Deny it and anger you you for suggesting it you know. So I have a tremendous amount of of love and respect for the people that are in the lives of addicts and stay in those lives and continue to be loving and supportive and I admire that an grateful so grateful that there are people out there like that. I think it's incredibly important to to make sure that you're not enabling an addict. It can be really easy to do that. And I don't recommend doing that but I also don't recommend shutting them out of your life I think there's there's there's some inbetween and that's where you should live be supportive. Don't stop loving and take care of yourself in the meantime absolutely right as you say anytime you get on a plane you know. Make sure your your oxygen masks on first before you go to help others like take care of yourself and that is incredibly important but listen you know. Call them out on their shit. Also you know Forgive the language but like don't just see see behavior that is telling an off and ignore it you know. Call them on it. Don't do it in an aggressive way. Call them on it. Let them know that you're on to them. They're going to deny it. They're going to lie to you but you know. Be Loving and supportive. But don't let them get away one hundred percent we did it. We did a man's good. Yeah it was great. It was pretty good. How you feel I feel really good all right really good. I feel I feel like he did when you sat next to Dr drew on that flight and he killed high. Use Alternate buzzkill. Dr Drew. I feel I think the only thing that could like make this even one notch better would be like a little springfield to just take it right. Well there's a guitar behind you if you WANNA play it more than welcome to next time all right. Now thanks so. The book is called as needed for pain. as I said I love a good addiction yarn and I'm I'm not done with this book yet. I'm just cracking into it but It's quite a yarn. So congratulations on it I think it's going to help a lot of people. Check it out even if you just want to read about stories with Rock Stars in the back of Limos or trying to cop heroin Arthur Park and I mean there's a lot of banana shit in this book and it's super entertaining but also really speaks to the heart of what this disease is and how to see your way through it.

"Your podcast Jonah Reeves Sandwich Story. The Sandwich story the sex doll repairer repairman. That was that was details. But I did this event in New York and Near where we live and Jeff came to show his support. Yeah Cool Yeah. He texted me this morning just to make sure that I was like all up to speed on everything and any he reminded me Of of just. What Heyday was details? During that time I mean you were really there at a period. Where magazines were hyper relevant. And you had quite you know the long leash to work with all kinds of amazing writers and really indulge long form storytelling in a way that you just don't see that often now I like to. I like to think that that I got to ride the last great wave of magazine publishing. Now that's not to say that they're still not great stuff going on in magazines today because of course there is but but back then when we relaunched details in two thousand there were still huge budgets like you said incredibly long leash really the tons of autonomy the ability to to do what we wanted to do and send riders off on Crazy Adventures and then have them come back and publish. You know six seven eight thousand words which which was which was a real treat for something. That's a little bit more rare today. And deploy these amazing writers like Afrin four and Augusta burroughs. Who Blurb Your Book and my all these incredible literary talents yes so we were able to sort of tap into that and give them the opportunity to write and go forward and and it seems like that has sort of dried up a little bit you know obviously but it really was. It was felt like a golden era you know and and I was really. I'm super grateful to have to have been a part of that Well your story in the book. Is it sort of equal parts? It's it's like a toned-down It's like a toned-down version or or an insecure person's telling of a bright lights big city type narrative you know what I mean like. You're you mute. The kind of high wire act of of editing this very prominent magazine and kind of navigating the canyons of Lower Manhattan. And all of that. But when I when I think about like that time and what you were doing it just I mean that was like a Rockstar job that you had. It was and and one that I was in no way ready for and that's not like forest humility. Like no no. They shouldn't have given it to me. No they shouldn't have given it to me but you know they gave me this job running details. I was twenty eight years old. I had never run any anything like that. You're running W in Paris prior to that was I was. I was running W magazine's European bureaus prior to that but that you know very very lean operation by comparison right so then. I was given this job at details and moved back to New York and had to kind of figure. All of this stuff out had to hire a team. And I'd never really done any of that before. And what's interesting is you're you don't like sort of cut the figure of the person you expect to be in that job first of all you were super young. But you're like you know you talk about the book like you're listening to Hootie and the blowfish even though you were w like you don't really care about fashion like how does this. How did you end up being in this arbiter of style and culture? Well I just just a quick word about my taste of music is. I've just been a Jaffna's get a lot of Shah man. You have no idea because his taste is dying and listen with all due respect to Hootie and the blowfish God love him. Yeah I wouldn't either put them that high on my list. I mentioned them in the book rich during field but it was like totally. It was like it was a child of the eighties. I was born in the seventies but like I really started kind of absorbing culture in the eighties and so like from me in Baltimore. You know it was stuff like you know. It was a journey and foreigner and sticks and bands like that and so that that just sort of stuck with me so it journey in particular something that people just like our merciless about when they on the people. Because I hear you're right. You're absolutely right here. I was now running this magazine and I would have all these editors who are plugging some had worked at rolling stone and Spin and they knew these worlds and they would come to me to pitch stories on bands that I had just only maybe even just heard of in some cases had not heard of people like Jeff and others who are like music right freaks junkies that were like. Oh man like can do something a little different a little new agey. Whatever the case may be but yeah it wasn't it wasn't a job it wasn't an. I wasn't an obvious person for that role but I think that's what what led them to want to give it to me. You know. I think they wanted to try something different. I think that the men's magazine landscape at that time was changing very quickly. This was the era of what we call the lad magazines like maxim and stuff and things like that and pretty like TNA driven and things like that. That just wasn't necessarily something that appealed to me right so I and the team that I assemble. You know we came up with this. I concept basically of of you know creating a magazine for for men not necessarily beer and Babes and barbecue sports but a new type of guy who could stand on his own two feet in lots of different ways and didn't didn't need to have a woman in a wet t shirt on the cover of magazine in order for him to be like. Oh cool. I'll pick that up so we started to kind of look at things a little differently. Yeah it tapped the the metro sexual zeitgeist nerve. I suppose and it kind of gave guys permission to care about things. Like style and cool. Music can stuff skin-care things tightly. You do you. Did you know a guy named Jamie Hooper who ran maximum? The name sounds familiar with but a little bit older than you but he was one of the guys that I ran around New York with when I was letting their way back in the day I feel like there were but there were lots of guys like that. This was what and by the way at this time in our culture around two thousand even the late nineties. This this was all there was this was. This stuff was booming. Absolutely booming. This was the the the approach to to talking about masculinity and it was like you know fart jokes and and like the hottest women in Bikini competitions. You know vote online now you know and so and that when I looked at that was like hey listen that just doesn't appeal to me. You know and so So we kind of cobbled together this magazine that you're right. I think. Tap The metrosexual vein and allowed us to look at the broader sort of filter. Things that were affecting men's lives and things that men should care about. Where previously you you? You didn't see too many guys sort of like openly embracing a love of you know aftershave or or you know or whatever or cooking or architecture design whatever it is you know. I remember just sort of thinking as I would pay through that magazine around that time during that period of time like is this for gay dudes or is this for me like is this like it was sort of a sort of it had a gay slant but it wasn't overtly gay like it was meant to kind of capture that audience but also be broader. That's that's exactly right. It was it was meant to serve. Smashed the stereotype of what? What's a Guy Today? And we did everything that we could sort of blur the line between gay and straight and so we would do stories that that people would look at me like hey whoa like like a little bit too far out there for me as a as a straight guy should. I read it but but The beauty of it is that it wasn't designed to be a magazine for everyone and so we we knew who our audience was and the audience grew very quickly in the audience. Responded to what we were doing and I would often say like hey like this. What we're doing is bothering you or you know you feel like it's sort of putting your masculinity or your idea of masculinity at risk than the call you don't have to you don't have to read it you know and that that was fine but but to to kind of blur that line a little bit and and talk to men who may have been straight or may have been gay and aside from their sexual preference were had all of the same interests and so this was our guy right and so but certainly not every guy. There's no yeah and perhaps not even you and that's the irony right you don't you don't cut the figure of like the details reader which is interesting It is interesting because at the time when we when we relaunched the magazine with this sort of new approach to to making content. I was out doing lots of press and promoting the magazine. Saying it's for guys like me and meanwhile I'm in a pair of like converse all stars and like ripped up jeans and t shirts no honey you know but I had just been living in Paris for for almost years and it had been exposed to this kind of European or continental. Talk the language absolutely you know and I would look at these guys you know and and you know the guys definitely gay and then like this beautiful wife would would you know throw it but like I was like looking at him in the head scarf wrapped around his neck and the way the suit maybe it was a little more taper than than the average American guys suit or you know listening to him talk about wine or art or whatever it is and I was like Oh this is really interesting approach to masculinity but no. I absolutely wasn't wasn't that guy. I think I grew a little bit to become that guy but I was. I was so deeply insecure with WHO I was I. If I'm being perfectly honest with you I don't think I know what kind of Guy I was. You know I really I really don't and so it allowed me just to kind of be a journalist and react to where I felt the culture was going. Which is what I think we did. Details yeah interesting. Well let's take it back. Let's play a little game. I know you're familiar with called what it was like what happened. What is like now I this so so you. You're you're from New York. You grew up in the suburbs outside New York. I grew up in Baltimore. That's right. Yeah Yeah. I'm from DC. So whereabouts there but so far same thing live across. Your brother was a big look. Exactly Y- you know. A lot of a lot is lot of star. Athletes Lot of you know crabcakes lot of you know Wales on belts and things like that exactly. Did you go to public high school? I went to private high school. What actually called Boys Latin? Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah Boys' Latin and Gilman. That's exactly look I went to land in probably might. My highschool probably played lacrosse against she. Sure did you would not have played against me. Not mean either you know I was in partaking in that world at all but but yes so. Yeah I grew up. That's where I grabbed right cool and you end up going to Nyu yes. Yeah so walk me through just your introduction to New York and I was in love with New York from from the moment I went on my first visit probably when I was thirteen or fourteen. It felt like the perfect place for me because it seemed like the ideal place for someone to just kind of get lost in a crowd. And and that's what I wanted to do. You know we talk about these Lacrosse guys and if if you have listeners out there that don't know this culture it's a really interesting culture right. I mean it. It's akin to football in Texas or right. Oh basketball in different parts of the country and soccer now of course but it's very at the time anyway was like Super Brawley guys like dipping. And and this was this world that. I didn't belong to nor really did I. Aspire to duck shoes totally. Doug shoes or box. Yeah and and like faded jeans and and and you know. Polo shirts you know with the collar up right it was it was stuff that like the John Hughes and others have documented also incredibly well but it just wasn't my world and so I when I first went to New York. Oh Wow cool. This works for me because I can kind of escape here and and maybe even kind of reinvent myself a recreate myself so I loved it from the moment I got the right. What's interesting about your story? Is that he you. Would you would suspect or predict that you know that young person in New York City gets introduced drugs and alcohol pretty rapidly and and the the love affair and the decline would begin almost immediately. That's not your story. That's not my story. You Know I. I was in love with journalism. You know so while like the those sort of like kids. The the Lacrosse kids. I was like the High School newspaper Guy..

"I was so offended. I put on such a show of outrage that you would even suggest I have a problem. So they're not used to dealing with that to me. I would have just gone. Oh my God you're so funny GonNa give me a break. They get panicky and think they made a mistake and never don't confront the next guy right right and listen to their credit. They cut me off. They did but slapped by. Cut You off this bring you in and have you treated. You're not bad patient. They did it you out. It's and and yeah and so but the I could flip open the yellow pages that happened back then and there was a whole section page of one of the neck of pain. Doctors and I knew the names of the pain. Doctors in the tri-state area like some people know the starting lineups of their hometown baseball teams. I knew who was where who was affiliated with which hospital who is likely to prescribe it became came my occupation. It really. Did I get it and did you keep your job this. I did keep my job through all this which is just extraordinary extrordinary. Let's be honest and and had it until they closed details in two thousand fifteen and those and I'll I'll tell you this. The pills didn't make me more productive. They thought they didn't get any more energy. They didn't make me more creative ideas. Were not the better it it that my life improved dramatically. My relationships with people improved dramatically. I I was present in my life really probably if I'm being honest for the first time right and just when trauma as a kid or something you know I I didn't I think I I never felt and this is here. This is commonly amongst addicts. Alcoholics I never felt like I fit in. I felt like everybody had been given a manual boys. Girls men women on how to go through life and when they got to me they had run out of of manuals and I just was never comfortable in my own skin and I never felt like one of the guys ever and so I- escaped through magic. I I was really into magic. Actually magic factors heavily. My story David Copperfield Factors. Have we in my story so I would like hide overy. Sorry yes so I I grew up just being a total magic nerd drive as in Vegas. And that's storefront. Yeah I've been there and so I would watch his specials he had these like CBS. CBS special every year that I would tape on VHS. And I would would watch it over and over and over again trying to figure out how did this. That and the other thing I've actually had chance to interview him When I was working for W magazine Kazini and then meet him again when I was at details and we developed a friendship and when my wife through pregnant wife threw me out of the house When I came back to New York I went to David Copperfield and I said I need a place to stay and I'm I'm an addict and and David was incredibly generous and kind and so I got sober? Really in his his house in New York And and that was that you know so but I said that Sir no no trauma but I just never felt like I fit in I and of course my brother was the star athlete. The Star student was incredibly popular with with girls. My Hi closest friend the same thing I always felt like just this. I was the the Buddy I. It was the cameron from Ferris. BUEHLER's Day off. I was like every character ever played by Anthony Michael Hall. I was the guy that just the girls would would would would complain to about their problems with the guys and hug me before going off with the other guy and and so I just you no. I S- elated and and Found my way into this really extraordinary career which I'm grateful for But really really had a mask on and You know hid in a bottle of pills and it's a pretty common I had some. There are some uncommon elements to my story. Yeah but it's it's is very bizarre story of our time to show sure it really is prints and anybody else you can think of. That died of exactly what you went through. Yes I know and it was always saying. We'll be APP pens opium. Opiates always extrordinary. You know and so those are still being over. Poor triumphed still. So what what gives you know like they. I don't understand addiction. My my peers. Do Not understand addiction. They don't get him. You have to see it a lot. I really understand it. And in one of the and one of the key core problems is my peers are offended by the idea uh when I approached them on this notion that they shouldn't believe their patients how I have a tra- The foundation and my relationship is trust. Right I have to trust my patients. I know you have to figure out what's going on right and give do the right thing for your patient. They're lying all the time and attics like all the time. Listen I mean constantly. Lying is the number one side effect. If my patient and didn't lie there diagnosis would be in question right like not an addict. If they're not lying I lied my ass off and and and and so all the research is built hold on reporting from the patients all the addiction research. Yeah or unobserved urines forget it or if they don't show up with other lost to follow up not they're using right unbelievable so all. The research is flawed. No one is trained properly and how to actually manage is the person the the Buprenorphine prescriber. There's lots of those out there. Yeah they don't. They don't understand addiction. You know someone told me a Very recently that throughout the sort of the years of education that takes to become an MD.. So Whatever that is whenever undergraduate courses you're taking twelve years right that's a short that that within that sort of short twelve year period? There's there's really only a few hours dedicated to addiction allergist. The only training I had was we visited an AA meeting. Which I didn't understand what was happening at a so-called Rehab unit which is actually a stroke Rehab Unit in Downey? Okay so the only training and that's an hour meetings jared name. They're now they're having. That was the and we talked about. Alcohol made for ten minutes. So what's wrong with that. Pick and and by the way the whole time working at a county hospital took care of tons of alcoholic recall and heroin addicts and did not address underlying disease at all. We're just dealing with all the medical problems that they caused never dealt with it. The underlying condition ever ever ever I think one of Intel stop using right sure. Stop doing this yourself together. One of the reasons that I wanted to write this book was to help help in any way that I could with my story to de stigmatize. Let's go back to the pain. Doctors that were describing. You don't know what addiction is and I was is in your midst for years. I hope you're doing better with it. They never learn because no one ever comes back. I eventually called all of them and said Hey. I'm a drug addict all prescribed arrived. Don't prescribe me any medics different than going back going. Listen I hear to try to teach you when you don't leave your patients do for five years. I'll send them my book. Look you know if nothing else but it was. The hard part for me was Was Not getting more. You know the hard part for me was was this was stopping and getting them. Listen there were challenges for sure but getting them was Was it certainly at least in New New York City back in and switch to heroin. It's cheap yeah atoll to the place. I actually went one night here in l.. A. To try to get heroin. I've I never done heroin but I tried one night to get it and When this was the night that I met the Rockstar and that Limo driver and we dropped the rockstar off behind his gate and I said to the LIMO driver? Hey the magazine that I work for is doing a story on you know Well known celebrities getting drugs. Where would they go? Can you show me why these areas skid row thing that that you just hear about and he took me to some pretty free. CD Area. And I got out of the car and he said sure you WANNA walk around and and I went and asked for for heroin from some guys that Eh approach me saying. Hey what's up and I was chased away either. They thought I was a cop or whatever it was I was I got chased back to the car. And that's when the Dr- the Limo driver said to me. Hey man what are you looking for you know and initially it was like to take me to my hotel and he persisted and I told owed him. He said I got you. You know so I came this close to doing heroin crazy. You know talked about recovery for a couple of minutes. Recovery is as much a priority for me now as the drugs were when I was act. Sp a little more. It feels better. It feels much better but I put as much energy into the recovery as I did into the drugs and I put a lot of energy into the drugs. You know. My my life is radically different. Now I'm a dad. I have three beautiful boys. They have only ever known me as a sober Overman which is a which is a blessing? I spent a lot of time in meetings. I still go to meetings sometimes three or four times a week And you hear stories as in these meetings of people trying to repair broken relationships with their kids It is it's heartbreaking. So I really. That's a blessing for me any During sponsoring other people I am. I'm I have spun sees I have a sponsor I worked the steps growing Own My shit on present for my life and But listen as they say like. We're not saints right. Like I can still be irritable. All I can still be a dick and but when I am I recognize it very quickly sometimes immediately and I immediately apologize. Hey Hey you know what. I'm I'm sorry I spoke to you that way or like whatever. I'm just having a bad day or whatever it is I know how to self diagnose you know like hey why hi my why did I just snap at one of my kids or why did I just grow irritable with with this person or that person and I own my stuff you know so for me. My recovery Is is incredibly important. Meetings are incredibly important. The Fellowship of the twelve step program is is incredibly important and now there's evidence that twelve step. Finally we have evidence basis for twelve stepped as effective or more than any other form of treatment especially when absences. Your goal and abstinence silence was my goal and remains my goal. And you know there's a there's a discernible very noticeable difference that I can detect within myself and I suspect others might be able to detect in me if I miss meetings for for a couple of days I just am a little bit more on edge and it's not that I'm gonNA reach for a bottle of pills and grab them I. It's that could happen right. It's a daily reprieve. But it's just. It's behavior becomes behavioral behavioral. And so I can tell like hey like I'm a little offer. Why am I being a Dick or whatever whatever it is and So recovery is everything without my recovery. I don't have anything else in my life. I do a gratitude list With a bunch of guys in sobriety. It's done over email. We call it the reply all list and it's meant to be done daily. None of us really do it. Daily but we we we have good serve spurts where we're we're all sort of in it and my sobriety is number one on that list every time because without it nothing else on that list matters Greg set it all star would say at all Gerry any questions you get the story. Now it's a wild story. I wish I hadn't heard unlike so many times. Yeah yeah but I mean it's great. That's awesome that you were able to get pass it and you know congratulations man..

"peres" Discussed on Dr. Drew Podcast

"Everyone became fearful of treating pain patients. So we sent them all to the pain management right and I saw a million million things like your story where they they literally said. This is a white hat profession. You meaning me. You're a dinosaur. You're interested in suffering. You don't know anything Eh. Addict never happens with addiction with opiates. They don't get addicted. This is just what they need for their pain. And by the way if you have pain. It absorbed had literally get so upset. When I hear this we talk about this? The pain absorbs the addictive potential absorbed view for. Don't you understand that this was what I was living through and I was going. Fuck no my patients are dying. You're killing my patients one. After the other after Nick drug companies never involved any of it but complicitous well definitely duplicitous but but weren't a also quote unquote educating the medical community that it was the pain management people they would pay for them to go out and give their but this was the these people thought they were. They were the shit they were the white hat. Profession the rest. You don't know what you're doing it's always been a solution the opium plant and you are you me have an opium phobia and you you and maybe you should lose your license or would get stuff like that all the time I was under attack and then the sea state medical societies adopted this the department mental health both the local everybody adopted the pain of the fifth vital sign and I add patients I was trying to get off drugs for miserable and in pain for a couple of days. Oh my got the stuff. I went through to try to protect. Patients is unbelievable drug companies never got involved in any way all of this then made it incredibly easy for me you too key to keep going course and you weren't an addict. What are you talking about if I if I had called that pain management doctor they would they would have excoriated me excoriated me. That may don't understand the pain. He's in Ohio. Yes I've had. I've had other pain. Doctors lie down in front of the patient. And don't say don't touch them. You can't get them. So then why did I have to sign that bullshit contract. Because that's they believe that was all they needed to to Structure your pain your pain management and also protect themselves a little bit but it really was. This is all you need. We need to agree how we're going to do this and then how we're going to do. This is whatever you tell me me. It's crazy so if if and they put people in Benzel as being the same time I was in a fatal combination. You're so lucky to be here. That's how people die. It's an incredibly lucky young here and I would take them as well. I certainly in the evening my biggest. Hi We're at night right. I was hiding in plain sight. I had a high-powered media job a high profile media job and outward facing media job so I was interacting with people I was hosting movie premieres and talking to celebrities and doing all of these things on the outside everything looked normal and on the inside I was was falling apart and right so but yeah they would prescribe me benzoate they would you know and obviously it's it's cruel current murder that's murderous combination. It's it's extraordinary. It's extraordinary the drug couples have to do with that no well then how Howard Howard they then being forced to pay these huge settlement. Now yes because the the G got involved with federal government came in and started just blaming it down and it just get froze again. Same thing happened going the other way right. Everyone just stopped prescribing. Opiates everyone's afraid to do anything. It actually actually went too far we can't get for surgeries and things now. The doctors are ski scare doctors. They stop that. That's what happens And it stops. Stop some win. The attorneys started doing their thing and it steps outside of malpractice. Now right and you're personally criminally and civilly liable for everything they they'll have nothing to do it. They just freeze. Well listen I I was able to Kinda skate by and it's only been the last year that so so this was in the early two thousand or mids you know. Federal Government was actually Jeff sessions that came in and just lay down just before he lost his job right. It's it's pretty extraordinary thing so and and I'll tell you this once. I realized that I was an addict. I I realized that pretty pretty quickly. I actually sat next to you on a plane once weird. I was super like you killed my buzz because I was like fuck. I'm sitting next to Dr Drew. He's going to absolutely know that I'm high and I really looked forward to airplane. Highs is that because particularly like a New York to La flight which is what this was and they give you a little video monitor. The lights are dimmed. No one seeing what you're doing now taking pills very easy. It's not like you can't smell it on my breath. Not You don't see me doing anything. It's something that's very easy to mask but I was next to you on a on a flight from from New York to La. And I I was like man. This guy's GonNa know He. This is what he does I was. It was a very unpleasant experience. No no no offense but Once I really truly recognize that I had a problem. It's still I still carried right on for years because stopping was which is unbelievably hard Initially I wanted to do it on my own court right which is not recommended. But that's trys well. Yeah I I didn't WanNA ashamed and and didn't want to embarrass myself my family I I didn't want to lose my job And so But you it's very very difficult to do it on your own no on It doesn't really work if it does seldom mm-hmm at best and so I then started getting Seeing an addiction specialist. Who would give me buprenorphine injections I would shoot into my legs and and I really think if I'm being honest that I just went to see him to help deal with whenever never withdrawal symptoms? I was going through when I hit a dry spell and couldn't get in scripture so people do and so I was like all right and I would go in there until the patients. He's buprenorphine and I would weep and I would. I'm done this. I want my life back. I would say all this shit just to get these to get these injections and and then I would get a film script you know two or three days later. Having had the injections helped me help home home ridge you know exactly and so it's just brutal brutal brutal. I started spending less and less time in the office Listen I had a meeting with Mike Tyson on the roof of a building in Harlem. We're putting him on the cover of the magazine and His team had had called me up and said we'd we'd really love for you to meet Mike. He had a great relationship with John. Kennedy Jr. He needs stable presence in his life and listen and as I write in the book nothing like fluffs very fragile ego like potentially being compared to John Kennedy Jr. I was like I'm your man. You know 'cause I figured look I could if I could con trainwreck. Like Mike Tyson. You know I met him on the roof of this building in Harlem where he kept pigeons. It was incredibly like oppressively. The hot and Fall Day like September Day. I was wearing a suit and I had taken a handful of pills and I would swallow pills the way. Some people like take popcorn movie theater and jam it into their mouth. I I would do it again. them all down with like one sip of water and by the time I I met with Tyson on the roof of this building I was swaying and sweating and and like bleary eyed. It was like I had just taken a punch from him in the rain and I thought Oh my God. I'm going to fall off the roof of this building. I mean it was it was it was just awful and so but I went through my life like this you know and would go home for the holidays and high as a kite and would travel out to La a lot. I eventually Developed a friendship with a with a Rockstar who was also an an opiate addict and someone that I had Music had been listening to since I was a teenager and Because again as I write like addicts tend to be able to identify each other the way vampires can can tell. When you're not human? I I had a a very talented woman I worked with. who was doing going through the struggle She decided she was GonNa stop her heroin and what was going to cure her heroin addiction was. She'd been adopted from Europe. She's going to go back and find her roots. That was the problem. That's the answer and So she it was silver a month and clean a month not really serious about it or not really active in any kind of program but going through the motions and she said she had layover in London. Before she went to went Hungary Yugoslavia or something and she had like a twelve hour lower layovers Schwinn the National Gallery in London and she said she hadn't been in the gallery ten minutes before she was slamming heroin with the security guard in the main gallery. How would you you walk up to the guy with the with the with the baton addicts? There's no each day they know each other and it's very very nice uncanny much in the same way that people in recovery can find each very quickly. Yeah you know which is which is interesting so I befriended this rockstar. And before you know it I you know we were doing drugs together. And he had this limo driver who could get drugs and so the limo driver. I started coming out to L. A.. All the time just to get picked up at the airport by this driver Burke and would would just get drugs and hang out with the Rockstar and do drugs and it was challenging though because the Rockstar was taking Oxycontin and would crush them up and snort them which I would do when I was with him but it made it very difficult for me to know how how many I would say we're used to titrate with the pill I really was and I was I was you know I fancied myself. A master chemist at this point and I knew I I probably not GonNa die if I stop here and I I mean that's how fucked up it is right because there were also nights where I would be like. You know what I'm GONNA take probably a couple more because I'm not feeling the lift that I need from this. It could kill me but like probably probably not right. I should be fine. Yeah and I would. I would wake up in the morning and just sort of take stock for a second of the fact that I was alive and brutal. Yeah crazy just just absolutely. How has your life falling apart other than you're staying here with Rockstar? You know The cracks were definitely beginning to show because here was running this magazine. But I was in the office Very infrequently you know with increasing in frequency so I would or if I was there I would come in for two to four hours and do what needed to be done and then I would leave. I started nodding out at the office. I actually did a job interview. Someone someone I was interviewing them for job at the magazine and I nodded out in the M- resume in hand in the middle of that interview. I we offered the guy that job and he declined so listen. It was brutal. I would go to emergency rooms in in the middle of the night because I was out and I thought okay. I can con- some exhausted young doctor in an emergency room I went to saint. Vincent's Instance Hospital in Greenwich Village. which is no longer there? It's like now like eight figure condos but I went once in a Tuxedo thinking that that would convince them that I wasn't just your average junkie looking for pills while I was in the triage area had just changed into a blue paper gown. They'd given me. I was seated across from a woman in a pink paper gown who was repeatedly flashing herself to me and taking those single well like alcohol wipes opening the package rubbing them all over her face dropping him on the floor and then you take another one and flashing me all so I finally sit down with the doctor. I said to him well. You won't believe 'cause I would always try to be as normal and conversational as possible. No matter how Shitty I was feeling And I explained to the doctor. Wow this woman was just doing all this sort of weird stuff and he said what color was she wearing. Was it pink and I said how would you. I know that you know. And he said well we give pink gowns to the people that we think are potentially psychiatric concern right three months later I go back in the middle of the night to Saint Vincent's Hospital. I'm not wearing a Tuxedo. This time and I was going through a particularly awful case they put your triage nurse looked at me. She said it's going to be a few minutes. But why don't you go ahead and put this down on and handed me a pink pepper. You knew right then and I left immediately so it was. It was obviously Very clear to some people that were paying attention or that with you know that I that I had a problem. Yeah but you know could you lie you know you know addicts will do anything to protect the addiction. And I did anything to protect the addiction. It was my number one and in many many cases only priority but one two three four five six seven.

"Editor in chief at details magazine for fifteen years and addicted during that time it was is good for the first half so you you've been all over the world covering W and details right. Yes tell me about your career and then we'll sort of weave the addiction story into that. Yeah no problem. I worked at W magazine which is a women's fashion magazine launch. It was an unusual place for me to land. I did not launch orange and it had been running for a number of years before I got there and I was sent to Paris for them and I lived and worked in Paris and then was brought back to edit details magazine which I did for fifteen years and it was a blast about in New York in New York yes and during that time get strung out on them. I did yeah. I did fairly unfortunately fairly common story in many respects. I had injury battered server shocking. Here take these sixty Vicodin oxycontin pretty much. Both and I was off to off to the races developed. It's just a massive addiction to opiates. Let's kind of breakdown. How how it unfolded because because it's always the same first of all? Did you have any alcohol call history before I never really drank alcoholic Louis. I identify as an alcoholic. I've been sober for since two thousand and seven And so I don't drink. But no no antecedent hints that you had the addictive potential. Not really you know. There was some pot smoking in college and things like that. But but nothing extreme sports or anything or now though no no no hint in your family's there no no it's not yeah interesting very what's your Jewish oh oh. That's a very special kind of addiction. That's Ashkenazi Jew. Is the only time you see stimulant or opiate addiction. Shen without an antecedent history of alcohol or family history is that true absolutely that's amazing and and the opioid addiction can be tougher to treat sometimes in Ashkenazi Jew populations. I don't know why I've never figured out. Why but sometimes they they hang in a little more before before they're willing to go? That was certainly the case with me as no question about it. Yeah I mean it was like lighting a fuse for me. I mean I was really often running and taking huge amounts to by the way But yeah it starts it starts. It's a it's a fairly common tail like I said You know you'll get your Baxter G. Go home you're taking today. You're doing fine. I'm taking it as prescribed and six six or so a day and But the maybe one day I was feeling feeling a little bit more pain and I- week later two weeks later in my case it was probably a week later and instead of taking to every four hours reside took three every four hours which led to four which led to an extraordinary love affair right then you fell in love ah I did. There was a brief hiatus. I sent to Paris to work for W magazine. France is one of these countries. Is that very wisely. Really doesn't even have these drugs and so I couldn't get them over there When I moved back to New York to take the job at details literally called my doctor within twenty four hours of landing back in the yard so tamie still back from the back surgery? So now we're a month without from back surgery. Let's say how much you taking that I was probably taking. I was probably doubling the dosage. I was probably had gone from to every four hours to four every four pain. I was not still having pain and and I really enjoyed the buzz that I got from it and didn't think think much of it quite frankly and did it give you energy it in time. I felt that gave me energy in time. mm-hmm like some people. I'm not a coffee drinker but like some people. I don't talk to me until I have my coffee. It was. Don't talk to me until these pills kick in and I really felt that not only did he give me energy but that I was performing at a higher level with them flowing through my bloodstream. So listen it's IT'S A. It's a pretty profound addiction that you withdraw draw when you went to Paris I not only did I withdraw when I went to Paris but my stomach was Iraq Because it really kind of Binds things up but eventually I I was fine. I was there for two and a half years and I would get. I was sent with an emergency prescription of a hundred extra strength. Vicadin fantastic which I gobbled up pretty quickly but ultimately dealt with whatever whatever to detox to deal with while there and but the seed had been planted it was it was there and I thought about them often the way some sort of think of a romantic interest that they're away from you know it was. It was something that was on my mind but I managed and when I would come back act to New York to see family to have meetings. You know whatever I would I would try to get another big script to to take me back. Would you tell the doctors I would tell the doctors and I had this down to who to a science and and I got very good eh conning these these doctors as addicts tend to do so. I would tell them I was feeling pain radiating down my leg. I was is struggling. I was traveling a lot. It was a real burden for me. It's someone they'd write a script for thirty thirty would you say I. I think I need a I mean listen. Even before they put pen to paper I would. I would put my request in. It wasn't wasn't until I moved back from Paris and took the job at details. That things got got pretty unmanageable. You know what what happened I you know it. It went very quickly from four every four hours to eight every four hours I ultimately about fifteen every four hours one hundred a day. It was about sixty a day because I would stop to sleep at some point. Lose your hearing say again. That's what happens when you go sixty or more it was I listen. It's a miracle that I'm sitting here talking to you and I know that so I I was taking them. I couldn't function without them. Getting them was at least initially initially easier than I anticipated that it that it would be which is obviously a huge problem. I've been sober for twelve years and I'd I'd like to think that it wouldn't be so easy now. Better a lot better but then pain is whatever you say. Well this is the thing you know. Pain is one of the few things. I'm not a doctor but pain seems to be one of the few things within the medical realm if you will that can't be tested for so. It's sort of the honor Dr System and a chart with a smiley face. You know you know. Where are you on this pain? Chart won the ten. Well it's really easy to say I'm at ten you know. and the doctors were being litigated. Aided criminally and civilly for inadequate treatment of pain not malpractice criminal. Yes so you could just go. I'M GONNA sue you for. I'm sorry for suffering right. That's that's it exactly. Its the fifth vital sign right and so it was very easy for me and on top of that I was professional looking guy. I was in a suit suit and tie most of the time. Even if I wasn't wearing a suit to work that day have wants to go to the doctor I would. I would put on suit and not only that but I would limp into that office like I had just climbed out of a car wreck okay. deb ebbed skipping down the street and totally and start doing it down the street and just in case it was very elaborate con right just in case a receptionist or the doctor birt's some nurse had been out running to get a cup of coffee or wherever they were getting they they saw me walking. Normally it would blow my cover so I would get out of a cab and I would hobble hobble from the cab into the doctor's office. Sterkel it was. It was a a anybody ever dr any suspect anything. Yes yes us not initially but after a couple of years of seeking treatment and I was probably seeing three or four pain specialists regular regular about that pain specialist and they're being conned so ridiculous and so I at one point The reception by the way denied that happens. They still denied happened. Unbelievable it is unbelievable. Yeah it's unbelievable and I'm here to tell you that does how hundreds of thousands of time and on top of that that it wasn't terribly difficult for me to do it because they whatever you said went some wouldn't have you see the doctor. They just have you specify what you want. There were times when I would just call in and speak to receptions and say hey. I'm traveling to Paris. Ars for some business trip. I my script is gonNA run out wall. I'm there meanwhile I had run out like two weeks ago. I was waiting. I would like mark the calendar MHM As to win. I could get a refill. But what happened when someone caught on that I was coming more and more frequently. Well within the month period had to get to get a new description and so the first couple of times they took what I was saying and now what I would do they make you sign a contract saying I won't rely to you. What the hell? That's not so but I would be super. I thought that I was like a mastermind. Her mind I would have travel itineraries printed out. It would have my assistant say called our travel agent. Say Look just. Can you set up a trip for me going from from here to here to here and all European or international travel and I would take that to the dogs love and say look here it is in black and white and would never book. The ticket would never go on the trip but I would get and they were writing for massive amounts so I was probably seeing a handful of doctors. Each was giving me in the neighborhood neighborhood of two hundred and fifty to three hundred forty pills I had moved on eventually from Vicodin to Roxy Code on which I think is that has fifteen milligram offering and Without the TYLENOL essentially those first few years when I was taking all that Vicadin then I was also just ingesting like a small bottle of extreme tylenol every day right and I've seen many many many hundreds maybe thousands of people in the same pattern term. And there's something about the way opiate addiction gets gets Spoiled up that you don't ever see liver toxicity. Ever ever. What one case so one case? It's your liver can adjust and develop enzymatic machinery to send it to a benign compound. Otherwise if I took eight tallow right right now. My live with shut down a couple of days right so I had my body was was processing this stuff and quite frankly was craving it and needing it and and now listen one of the sort of challenges of Of this type of addiction is keeping yourself with in pill pat keeping yourself stocked right particularly as it progresses and you start taking more and more and more so I went down to Tijuana once and and bought a thousand pills illegally and legally. I mean I walked into a pharmacy without a prescription and bought a thousand. Do that Downer owner. Listen maybe back then. You could do that so I just sort of drove them back in. and Oh you know was worried about drug sniffing dogs at the border and all of that and you know I had a million near misses but managed to to to make it work. I even called prescription in. ooh That's dangerous I myself boy. You know I don't know that you can call that doctors. I can call them in anymore but certainly they could back then because I'd seen it paint. Opiates where the answer. Then you're stand. They were going to solve all of everything. That's exactly right and that is because as you know that that pharmaceutical company was not the pain management world and the lawyers lawyers that. We're putting doctors in prison for inadequate treatment of pain. I was living through it and it froze us. We all frozen place when all those the attorneys started coming at us with inadequate pain preatment and.
