"All right, we are back. Your book was just selected as a GMA book club pick. Congratulations. And that is like a huge national stage. So what was that like kind of bringing the issues that you raised in your book to this massive platform? Yeah. Well, it was really nice for us. Honestly, that it was GMA. We felt so passionately from the beginning that we wanted this book to be not just a novel, like this had to be fiction. We did not want to write a nonfiction book about a black woman and a white woman who are friends that has one been done before, but two, we think fiction just touches people in a different way than nonfiction does. As we want to write a novel that was also very commercially accessible, like the cover of our novel is beautiful and the title is not, you know, attacking anyone with the concept of race and are subject is about lifelong friendship. And it has important issues of race in there. So when GMA picked it, we were like, oh my gosh, this will help us reach such a bigger audience with this book that we really think can help people start to have a conversation that they were just they were too scared of because race is the third rail in America. And you will pick up a novel. I think most people in our country will pick up a novel before they will pick up. The wonderful nonfiction out there that how to be an antiracist or white fragility, because we are honestly not attacking anyone in this book. We try to come at it from every possible side of this story. We are not preaching to anyone, is what people to see behind the headlines and to try to get to know someone who is not like them. Hence the title, we are not like them. So Good Morning America. There's so many book clubs out there, but it felt like such the right platform for us. And we got to be interviewed by Deborah Roberts, who is just, first, she glows, sneaking of self care and wellness. She just glows from the inside. From within, like there's a light inside of her. Yeah. She just got this book. She just got it. And she said she saw so much of herself in our character, Riley, and so we couldn't have thought of a better platform for this to be chosen for. To get selected for a big morning show, I think for a lot of writers can feel like an accomplishment, which it is, right? Like somebody is recognized, the narratives of your bulk and that feels good, ego wise. But I think also Joe and I rather than thinking of it as an accomplishment, thought about it as an opportunity, right?.

"The drawing. Wow. Wow. Possibly. Okay. You'll have to read the book to find out what it ended up being. It's like it's like paid page 58. I was at Christmas Eve dinner with my mother in law, when I wrote that on text under the table. And so after that, we were like, all right, can we, how can we keep working together forever? But also where can a different way? Because we practically wrote marriage vacation together and Christine had this idea for a novel that she mentioned to me and I just got that feeling in my stomach that was like, this is a really important book. And I have to trap all the other stuff that I'm working on and do this with Christine. And then we started, then the magic happened. 'cause this was 2018 when we finished marriage vacation and just, I mean, I think 2018 feels like the before times in so many ways. But if we can all use our time travel and take ourselves back there, it was still in that post Trump disorientation, right? And what is the world? And there were so many police shootings that just come in these waves and all these depressing headlines. And it was something that was really affecting me personally and had been since Ferguson and it was really this idea of what would happen to a friendship between a black woman and a white woman. That was upended by this. It was testing everybody in a lot of ways. I mean, not just those headlines, but others, we were all having these conversations about, how do I talk to my friend about this or that? Or they voted for Trump, but I didn't, or feel this way about immigration and I don't. And so it just felt like there was a lot that we could delve into and I was still working full time as an editor with a busy day job. And so even if this idea was percolating in the back of my mind, it was daunting to think about writing a book. I had never done it before. And since Joe and I came off the heels of this amusing collaboration, it just felt like the stars aligned that not only could I have a partner in writing this book, which would be amazing, but also because of the subject that we were tackling writing as a white woman in a black woman would make this book even better. This was a really unique opportunity. And so we just it was like I proposed. I was like, would you?.

"To have to ask. What made you write a book about vaginas. Why did you go there. Great question i am. of course. i'm a gynecologist. I've been unpracticed for a little over fifteen years and what i've noticed over all of this time is at my patients still kept having the same questions and the same concerns over and over and over throughout the years even though it's great for me to be able to explain it to them one on one i started thinking of my patients and we have seventeen thousand patients in the practice. If my patients have these questions what about other women are they still having these same insecurities about their anatomy that my patients are having and i thought you know with the pandemic. I had a lot of time on my hands and any major knows that when you give an english major too much time to do nothing like their brains go wild. I started thinking. I start answering some of these questions and i was gonna just write a little e book to put on my side just frequently asked vagina questions but i just kept going and going and going. I realize oh my god. I have eighty seven pages. Nobody's gonna read that unless it's like an actual book and that's just started to get it done and there. We go amazing. So what are some of those questions that people have been coming to you with over and over again in the thousands the biggest question i always get is odor. Everybody is so concerned about odor. And i explained to them for the most part. Yes your vagina is gonna have some type of owner odor considered your signature scent which is completely normal. Sometimes it's a little tangy. It might actually depend on what you're eating or drinking generally it's normal but we are bred at to believe our vaginas. You're supposed to smell like you know. Bath powder or chanel number five or you know. Some kind of special bath and body works all the time. But that's actually the opposite of what you want what you really want. If you're trying to attract a partner. I have research in my book about this is that you want your own signature. Sent to get onto your partner. Because he's gonna remember or she for that matter is gonna remember or they or is going to remember that sense especially if it's tied to pleasure is going to bond nut person to you so when i talked to my patients about their odor. Most of the time. It's normal. I secondly you want this smell. Because it's going to help with your relationship on a cellular level and thirdly we are not supposed to smell like betham body works

"I'm ready to talk vaginas. Are you ready to talk vaginas. I'm ready to talk vaginas and learn about vaginas. Did you learn about vaginas. Growing up. In what i learned in school. Which which probably everyone learned that was about it. Okay what did you learn in school. Specifically about vaginas. What did you learn. I can't remember what. I just remember basic sexual anatomy so what it was what its purpose was and we definitely didn't learn about any pleasure. Okay so what did they teach. You was the purpose. Well there was babies. Which i know not in the vagina per se and then obviously other anatomical functioning. I mean if you had you know that you re thrown going p but that was a bit okay so they actually taught you that there was a separate whole to piazza. Yes i recall that. Yep because we didn't. I don't think i learned that. Like i think i kind of for longtime thought the vagina and the youth for with the same interesting. No i do remember it being separate. Because i remember you learning about the you. Re threat for penises as well okay. So let's talk names. did you have like. What did your parents call the penis. I only remember it being called the penis. I can't remember if i was a kid if it was called something else when i was a little little kid i mean maybe my pb or something like that. But i never. It was never called anything else and did your parents use the word penis freely. Like i can't picture your dad's saying penis. I definitely wouldn't say that it was used freely but when we had to address it if there was something it was what it was. Which was the penis. Okay okay. now i'm thinking about my childhood. My parents call. I guess the vagina the pongy. So pongy i. I don't know if it's from the jamaican side. It could be the chinese side. Or probably some combo of chinese jamaican it was always called the pongy And i can't for the life of me..

"I think too like you know. We want to have careers we take. You're studying to be a doctor or lawyer or baseball player. But we don't put any time at the practicing. had to be husband. Had to be a father. So i think especially to to to with faith. We put time into these things. I think the return on the investment is so much bigger than the time put in so I wanted to turn over the baseball. I know right now. When i was a kid. Little league was a seasonal thing. We did it once and that was it. Now it's three hundred and sixty five days a year. Kids are out there playing baseball all year long. What kind of vice you. What kind of support did you get from your parents as your career developed. What kind of advice do you have for parents whose kids are looking to take baseball to the next level. Well that's a good question. I think again. The whole system has changed significantly one. When you're kidding i was a kid. We add little league and eventually went into Junior junior high and then high school. Baseball on american legion. And now everything seems to be in these travel teams and and It's very intense. I think that the kids today get a lot of very intense instruction and expectations at an earlier level. At an level worse for us we'd play until certain point then we go to the beach or go to the go to the shore and half summers of fine and things like that but now these kids play the whole summer I don't know if it's good or bad. I mean. I think the body and children are very resilient and they can take a lot of a lot of sort of intensive training. But on the same note. I also hope that kids be kids. You know and i tell parents all the time that a lot of kids who were probably good prospects they just burn out because they get too much intensity to two young in they lose interest or they become just. It's like a balance you have to strike. I guess it's it's a it's a balance between activity and then rest and fun and school. So i i don't envy these kids today. I mean they juggle a lot. There's a lot of expectations than you have. Social expectations in a lot of them are on social media Life was more simple simple. When i was young and it was just you know play of literally game. We get a hotdog. We go to get a slurpee that we go to the beach. I mean now it's like they're on the computer all the time and were either talking with kids all over the country doing their tick toxin stuff. And it's weird. I mean it's like something. I can't relate to so i mean i tell parents you know and a lot of parents come to me talking about my kids gonna. He's a great player. he's gonna win. I'm like i. I hope he does. I hope he turns out to be a major league player but do have to kind of bend. Don't break and i do see a lot of parents. Unfortunately i think that have just broken their kids or kids that have broken themselves because they just they just flame out when they need to just take more time to relax and enjoy life. Yeah good stuff. My and then i just recused. We're on the topic here. What do you think these new rules that are in major league baseball. Now as far as the double header the doubleheader being set seven innings and then also starting a guy on second base extra innings. What's your opinion on these new major league baseball rules. I don't like them at all. I think it's just you know. I say it all the time you know. I don't come across like what's the word. I'm judgmental or display put to me. He's falling away. It's like you start with a guy on and you know. Get one time. We went on this road trip where we went to philadelphia new york montreal san francisco and eric harris's parents came on the trip and they traveled with us and when we landed in san francisco they were even playing and they look like that they were you know got hit by a truck and eric stats said to me. I don't know how you guys do this in play and i said we just do it. You just have to get through it now. Everything about it. Just seems like every and i don't mean this in a bad way because they're not What's the word. I'm looking for soft. But they're very pampered. And i think part of athletics and baseball's you just gotta grind you have to go out there and grind so i know they're are a lot of competition for the space with other sports and other sports are faster and the tension span of society is less today. I get that. But i think you just sometimes have to let it out there and people will get on and understand it i. I don't like those rules. I think it's it's not a good thing but it's just my opinion and obviously you crushed it in baseball yourself. My what was it like for you to finally get inducted into the baseball hall of fame. And what was it like to share that moment your family. It was amazing. I mean it's it was an amazing day and I mean again. I had to wait a few years. I waited a few years. I was getting closer and closer. But i tell people as well you know. Sometimes that's good because it made me appreciate it more and when you go through a time to where you're having you're getting frustrated because you don't feel like you're getting anywhere or your having a hard time. I say that's good. I mean because you truly don't appreciate something if you don't work for it you don't i'm sorry but it's given the you easy yet. Just don't appreciate it as much as if you have to pay the price and really earn it And that's one of the values today. I think it's a little lost in society. I think people are a little bit more entitled quicker you know. They want things quicker right away. They don't wanna way. They don't want to climb the ladder. They don't wanna pay the price Expressions sometimes you have to take a step back. Take two steps forward. The you don't hear those things anymore. Today everything is instinct gratification. I want it now. I want it. I want to. You know. i don't wanna wait for it and Unfortunately maybe it's causing a little bit of a devaluation of achievement today and I think things come around cycle. So i think eventually these things will will come back to to to center. Well said i couldn't agree with you more. i think. I think this every kid gets a trophy. Philosophy has been a colossal failure. And i think it's done more harm than good. You say that a real quick stories. My brother was on is little league team and he was playing right field and he went to go after fly ball in the ball. Hit him in. The head bounced off like ten and he said from that moment on. I knew i wanted. I had to be a lawyer so know it's like you'll find out by defeat in. There's lessons in frustration and there's lessons in failure and so you're right. I think this whole a we. We have to be very careful. Can't offend anybody. We have to make everyone. He'll give everyone a trophy. It's just it's not. It doesn't build strong character in my opinion. Yeah i agree. Yeah i think like a guy. Like michael jordan got cut from his high school basketball team and that lit a fire under him and that could have changed the entire trajectory of his career. If that hadn't happened than he just got you know. Maybe he doesn't get that ignition there. You know you never know how that how that works out. So come and obvious. Obviously you're going to go down your legacy secure in baseball one of if not the greatest hitting catcher of all time but what do you want your legacy to be as a dad. Wow that's that's a deep question That i was just i. I was there. That's all. I wasn't perfect. Not perfect. But i think children Children just need you there. I mean i tell guys all the time. You don't have to be perfect but the little things mean a lot Taking him to school taking him to to get ice cream just listening to them. Because you're listening to the problems in your life thinking Okay this is not exactly rocket science..

"Someone you know. I think you have to kind of be strong yourself and and sort of undertake people for the way they are and realize you can't change people and With my son you know boys are different. I mean i think the stress level with girls is low early. They mature faster in that as they get older. Maybe the stress level increases and with boys. There stret- you. Because so hyper that. Maybe when they get older. I think the stress level so It's it's an interesting journey. I guess for lack of a better word and You know i just. I adore my daughters. I mean we we we really and communication i mean is the big thing i mean i i wanna be there and have those difficult conversations about boys and things like that which is not always easy but i have to kind of be there because i want them to have the trust that they can approach me with those things. Yeah and mike. Talking about the differences. I i have three boys and one girl. She's my baby. She got her on the end. So one thing that's different with me. Is the way that i disciplined. I find myself disciplined. Boys a lot different than i disciplined my daughter. My wife constantly gets on me. I'm trying to improve. Give in all the time with my daughter. So what type. It disciplinarian are you as a dad and is that different than the discipline. Saudi you grew up with interesting. Yeah i mean my dad. My dad's disciplined style. If you grew up with a lot different than mine. But i mean we we would get the smack occasionally the the The reminder of That when we did do things wrong or screw up We get the physical discipline now. Obviously you can't do that. It's society has evolved in you have to be very careful With with girls. I think i try to get them to Sort of inter sort of take things internally and process it and There's nothing wrong today was saying. Look this is wrong and a very disappointed in you. I think you have to use more logic and reason with with girls boys. Obviously you know. I still smack on the but occasionally if he needs it Think that's harmless. I mean you know. I don't want to stay. Obviously you can't take it to the extreme. But i think that's just sort of a ruffling feathers kinda hurting their pride a little bit and let him letting them know who's in charge on they need to know who the boss's and at that point i think they kind of most kids will come back in line pretty well but you're right. I mean i think the biggest thing is just to talk about it with the girls for me and just say look. If they do this wrong they stay out past the time or they don't check in. I said look this is the rules. These are the rules of the house. When you have your own family and your own house you could have your own rules. But as long as you're in this house these are the rules and if you don't abide by them view now what do you do you. Just take their phone away. I guess that's the ultimate discipline. Yeah we we use that technology like currency around here. Yeah then you can get them to do just about anything for more screen time. It's crazy it's true. But i guess you gotta use the tools you have one hundred percent and you mentioned there. Too that you grew up. Your mother was a devout catholic. Mind was as well I lost both of my parents before. I became a dad myself. But that's one thing that i i've carried over is my mother's You know Calf catholic faith. And i bring that into my kids. How much of your parenting involves a your faith with the kids. Well happy to say that My oldest daughter just got confirmed this week us we came back to miami was an amazing a ceremony and Yeah you know. I go by that expression in the bible that you know jesus said if you introduce children be then you shoot you too shall receive me so it's the same thing. I was talking about the rules of the house in and mind. My mom said look as long as you live in this house. You have to go to mass. You have to do the sacraments and when you're on your own you can do what you wanna do. I can't have. i don't have control of you. Then it's amazing. How those things stick. And i n i for myself personally. It gives me an incredible sense of peace. It kinda sets things in order and then you realize when you go through a stressful time in life that that it's all going to be okay It's a great way of just dealing with the ups and downs of life. I it was a great council for me when i was playing to get through those difficult times And with my children. It's been an extremely rewarding experience. Because i feel that It's like any other relationship. I mean you. Relationship with god is like any friendship. It's like any sort of thing you care about. If you really care about you put effort into it. And i think people have this misconception that you're going to get hit by a lightning bolt in god's gonna know you. It's like any friendship and i heard a great expression one time that says don't make someone priority when they make you an option so it's the same thing with your faith life you know if if you're gonna make an option you know god's not going to make you priority but if you make a priority than you're going to see it and if your eyes are open you'll see the benefits of it I've seen it already. I mean i've seen in my kids. I see the way they they understand morals and and making the right decisions And and hopefully that will carry into their families as well. Yeah and i love what you say there might to about putting the time into it..

"Me now. First-class father and mike piazza. Welcome to first glance. Fatherhood thank you. It's good to be here all right. Let's let's hit it like this. How many kids do you have. How old are they have three kids. have a fourteen year old daughter at eleven year old daughter and seven year. Old son. very cool. What kind of sports activities they all into. Well my oldest. Well as you well know. Probably the pandemic has been tough for extracurricular activities. My oldest daughter wanted to run track. she was running track a little bit Years ago she was into ballet. She kind of grew out of that. Because i get. I guess they get to a certain point where they have to do point shoes. And it's kinda hard on the feet. And she was really into it but then she started running a little bit and and she's just generally just trying to basically she she's actually very well fit and when things get quote unquote hopefully back to normal. We'll see if she's going to get into that again and my my younger daughter. She is a dancer as well. They dance in italy. A club there They doing it online. Zoom stuff and now. I think it'll start backup. Probably in the fall and my son right now is just is. Playing soccer doe. He's playing show in italy and it's really good for him. I mean obviously learning italian and dealing with talion coaches and players and things like that. So it's it's really funny to watch him to play out there eventually. I'll get him into baseball little bit but right now he's only seven so i mean i played catch with them and he hits a little bit but that's pretty much it on the The athletic from yet. Very cool my and if you could just take one minute here to hit my listeners. A little bit about your background your well. I'm originally from the philadelphia area. I grew up in chester county. Pennsylvania my. My father is tying american he's was in car. He's a car dealer was a car dealer. Were in the car. Business there and and Real estate My mother is from It's called phoenix pennsylvania and Yeah i mean. I grew up in a would be typical seventy styles suburban household. You know my mother was a devout catholic and she made sure we went to church every sunday and did the sacraments and You might. My father was like any other typical data. At that time you introduced baseball myself and And ended up getting better and and working hard and becoming a allstate. Baseball player eventually found my way down to miami where i had a partial scholarship university miami. I didn't play that. Well there but Play their one year in the next transferred to junior college might be dated. I was signed by. The dodgers added junior college in four years in the minor leagues and eventually made my way to the major leagues and and had a pretty good run pad. Pretty good career was very blessed. Yeah you had a legendary career mike. It's been exciting to watch over the years a long journey that you did have mike. About how old were you. Then when you first became a father and had to becoming a dad kind of change your perspective on life. Well that's interesting. I was Pretty much bachelor. My whole career In the major leagues and for a number of reasons. I mean number one. It's very difficult to to have. A family of. I was very dedicated. Obviously to my job and I wanted to be kinda financially secure before. I had least had a family but i got later in my career. I think i think i had married around. Thirty six. thirty seven My wife's from california and then a year later we we started our family. But yeah i mean. I tell guys today that You don't have to be in a hurry. i mean. I know a lot of guys that had kids in their early twenties and mid twenties guys i played with but life expectancy is longer. I think we have More were more active in our later years. Whereas years ago maybe fifties and sixties would be considered old. and now it's not So i tell guys all the time you make sure. Number one year emotionally mature enough to have family also financially To have family and then time-wise have the time to be able to put into family as well because you know children are very impressionable and they really just need you around. I mean they. You don't have to be mild thing is you. Don't have to be perfect. You just have to be there you know very well said mike. I talk about ally show all the time about the fatherless crisis that we have going on we got so many kids that are growing up without a dad in their life and it's having a devastating effect on our society and those factors could be. I play just like you mentioned there key. People that are having kids too. Young aren't ready aren't married aren't financially ready to do it. And they're leaving these responsibilities and leaving a big void in our society and How much would you say then. Mike did starting a family having kids. How much does that play into your retirement from baseball or was a time for you to go. How much did having kids play into. That was a little of both. I mean it was kind of past my prime and and playing the position of catcher physically. It was very demanding position And yeah i mean. I had my first daughter thing. It was two thousand seven and i started to play one more year at oakland But i don't know if it was necessarily i stopped because started a family. I if i could have pushed it another few years i could. You know the game sometimes has a way of telling showing you the door i always say and my personalities such i never wanted to be the last guy that you know is at the party when the lights go on you know. I just kind of wanted to kind of do my thing and slide out on on You know i always loved the expression of on your own terms. I don't think anybody really goes out on their own terms you know. I think it's a question of mother nature and time kinda shows you the door and then myself i always. I had a very high standard for myself. And then once i felt like i never really could achieve though that level again. I didn't want to be a like seventy sixty percent of my former self. So i think you have to be as a another thing is emotionally Self-aware in realize that as an athlete you can't play forever and you have to go onto different things and you should have interests and some guys go back to school. Obviously some guys works and guys go into broadcasting myself coming from an entrepreneurial family. I was lucky that i had the business interests. Like you know the car. The car stores in real estate. And so i was able to kinda slide back into What i would call just normal life. Yeah good stuff mike. And what would you consider to be the the top values that you're hoping to instill in your kids as they grow up. Well i think As you well know probably girls and boys are a little different In the way you approach them with my with my daughters. I just want to give them the confidence that they are good. Enough and that They just have to What i wanted to them is basically that always there for them. I want to show them discipline. I want to show them the importance of education and self development. And then if you achieve these factors hopefully as they mature in life bill achieve light minded a like minded mate eventually someone who has those same values i i truly believe that we as human beings sort of find the level that we develop ourselves and You know. I years ago. I think you get into a situation where you you. You can't really rescue someone you know. I think you have to kind of be strong yourself and and sort of undertake people for the way they are and realize you.

The Game Before: One City's Soccer Obsession and Its COVID Crisis
"Same. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks so much for having me baba so last year in february around this time the american sports world we were watching the coronavirus from afar and in march as we know the nba cancelled all their games and most of the other sports followed suit at that point too but around that time that same time the story emerged out of italy where corona virus cases and deaths were extremely high and the headlines. There they called this one soccer match in particular game zero and it was linked to a very severe covert outbreak and a year later sam. Frankly wanted to know if that was true. So we called you and you started digging and digging and you found an answer but also what feels like a much more interesting story. Yeah that's right. Pablo in the end. It's really a story about a team and the city that loves it so i want to start with that team oughta lot. Tell me about them. Okay so as you listen to this story. Pablo there's two important things to keep in mind about atalanta. The first is that this is a team deeply deeply ingrained in its city bergamo italy. The club is founded by a group of students in one thousand nine hundred seventy. Choose to name it. After the lava a heroin from greek mythology so for more than a century ought alana's been part of bergamo's fabric And you know what it reminds me of. Have you ever met someone from green bay and heard them talk about the packers. That sort of attachment. Like if you give birth to a baby and burgum. Oh the team they send you this tiny jersey and two bottles the formula. Imagine pablo the piazza in bergamo and strollers going this way. And that and every baby there is wearing a blue and black atalanta jersey atlanta's bad and batting atlanta but is no difference. That's a guy. I talked to you for this story. He's great his name's fabio piano. He lives in new york now but he grew up about a two minute. Walk from atalanta's stadium and says if you're from bergamo. Pablo it is your birthright to cheer for atalanta fabio's in his late forties now and when i asked him about memories of atalanta games he had a very very deep. Catalog probably was a nineteen eighty-two and atalanta a similan in bergamo remember that incredible crowd of people from land milan's the nearest big city. So bergamo was always in its shadow and was also incredible score because the match finished two. And you know it was my. How can you say the first time with me from motown facing against a big name big city vividly recalls the game would think about this a game from forty years ago. It's a tie not even a win. Just tying milan team to to to to lifelong memory for of fan.
Becoming Part Of A Shoppable Life
"Today. I'm signing up to be a reward style and fluid sir. When i talked to amber she told me how to do it and it sounded pretty easy. Pretty painless you would go to reward. Style dot com or influence or page in apply and team is actually looking for certain things. We've got those applications. And then we make investments and influencers that we think are investable so go to www dot reward. Style dot com. Everyone on this page is so good looking. I'm not as good looking. Apply now bone. Tell us about you first name. This is way easier been harvard region. I live in philadelphia. But i have a lot of friends in new york and la which seems a lot sexier not release. Not sexy love. Felli best city in america please provide all the channels. We post content to regularly. I don't know what has these are. what's clerk. What's billy billy. Now i don't even i can't even think about tiktok username. Joa piazza right. These questions are optional. But can help increase. Your chances of being approved cleese. Identify one of the categories. You need help with monetize. i wanna monetize myself. How much time do you plan to dedicate to create and monetize content as little as possible. That's not true. I'm going to tell them fulltime. You'd think they'd ask you more. You think they'd want to know a little bit more about me. Like do you like to take long walks on the beach. i'm virgo. I enjoy pasta. But i've been doing a kito diet recently right bam until we got rewards style application. Submit it now. I just have to wait. And see if i get accepted while i wait. I want to figure out what a shop of a life means. So i called. Emily hunt from pentagon shop will. Life is a term that i came up with with my colleague lee mcguigan. We are looking for a way to sort of encapsulate. What was going on on instagram. With monetize saying their lifestyles so shop ability as this idea that any place piece of content experience could be a potential site of commerce. So when i wake up in the morning in my brooklyn and sheets and make my way to the bathroom. Use my billy razor to shave the bottom half of my legs and then put my everyday oil on my face to get. That just got screwed. Glowing. what yes. Hi genuinely loved these brands. This is not an ad. These people are not paying me yet. But if we're award style of proves me. These could all be potential sponsors of instagram side hustle. But the thing about being shop -able when you start documenting and broadcasting your entire life on instagram. The opportunities for product placement feel and less is all has the potential to get real overwhelming real fast. A lot of the mom influencers. I've talked to say they have moments where it's hard to separate their real life from their brand friendly instagram life. But only i was learning that everything i saw was content. That changed the way. I did everything. I was thinking betting. Because it was what i liked and also. Does anyone else have anything like this. How is this going to graphs. Can i leak to lose and get an affiliate of it. That's natalie eleven again. We talked the last episode. She was one of the early mom influencing celebrities. The creator of the. Hey natalie gene instagram account and that blurry boundary between life and business that she describes that was so disorienting to her that she eventually quit this crazy world. But we'll get to that later episode for now back to emily hunt your participation in commercial lights is no longer limited to actually going to a store shopping as something that could potentially happen anywhere. This is sort of been growing sort of creeping up on us long time. We've talked about the history of influencing already. We talked about lucille ball revolutionizing mom influencing on tv. But there've been other versions of the shop -able life to especially if you were a kid in the eighties and your parents watch. Tv late at night. You're going to recognize a lot of these. You know we kind of talk about like older forums like if you think about like an infomercial. The following is a great advertisement for the express. Ready set go brought. That was like an early attempt to make watching television a shopping experience so the shop will life on instagram. It's just this idea that we're presenting our lifestyles in images and in instagram stories. And that they can be merchandised. Monetize pretty seamlessly the merchandising and monetization of instagram and instagram's stories is the idea that you can buy another person's entire life with just one click. It's amazing watch. How it's as easy as putting in your fingerprint. And within a matter of seconds you can go looking at this picture of someone's life to owning a piece of that life. I don't pretend to be exempt from this either. I recently bought a rug for my bedroom. And i think that's part of the appeal of more generally is they make life easier for their followers.
Covid-19: Millions wake up to tighter coronavirus restrictions
"Flying to the us from the uk will be required to have proof of a negative covid nineteen test within three days of their flight. More than fifty countries have barred traveled from the uk or have put restrictions in place as britain's sees many cases of that new variant of the coronavirus. We want to check in on italy. Which was the first european countries to be hit. Hard by the coronavirus back in the winter and spring remember those unthinkable images in the sophisticated country of overwhelmed hospitals a nationwide lockdown in place between march and may people speaking and singing to each other from balconies on wednesday italy became the first european country to exceed seventy thousand deaths from covid nineteen just as italians were preparing for their traditional celebrations of christmas. The bbc's mark lowen has been covering the pandemic all year and joins us from rome by skype. My my mark. Sixty million or so population in italy seventy thousand deaths more than two million infections. How would you characterize the pandemic right now. I would say robin Is in still in a very devastating second wave which has torn through the country on the difference between the first wave and the second one is that in the first wave. You might remember that the it was really very focused on the north of it to the on the much wealthier regions in the north and like somebody around milan which were very badly hit but they did but it did not spread down to the poor south of the country massively as we go to that time because the if the hospitals couldn't cope in the north will then me in the south they went to naples coke but this time it has hit the south as well. It's the whole country Luckily over the summer where there was a bit of a lull in the virus hospitals actually increase their intensive care facilities and ah capacities so they have been able to cope better this year. With a second wave. They have not been completely filled but That they have been in a very very bad steady. The second way and As you say debts now. I've assembly thousand cases over two million and really all this country can hope for is a christmas gift is respite of in in twenty twenty one. Well we'll what form would that take. Is it the vaccine or people being vaccinated their. The vaccinations are going to start on the twenty seventh samba long ago the eu countries and The first in line will be healthcare workers on the front line. Those over the age as it is. I'm sure Where you are as well and And yeah that just absolutely desperate and craving this maxine because not only has the as the actual at the impact on on have human health so devastating but on the economy. I mean Back before the second wave really got very bad They were ready for costing any contraction this year ten percent. And now i think it'll probably be even even worse They got to impose tighter restrictions over the christmas period closing bars and restaurants and cafes the much of much of the christmas period and shops as well so the economic fallout and of course the social impact is going on the social repercussions going to be felt for many years and just briefly what happened. Is that the same as elsewhere here in the states people. Maybe just traveled more or carried it from one place to another. We remember in the beginning in italy outbreaks were traced to people going skiing alpine countries where they could trace it right down to the ski house and then bringing it back and now we understand. There was talk of closing borders between italy and france and countries where there are ski areas or testing people. Are you know what is the sense of what happened to bring a second surge. I think that there was a level of complacency over the summer when cases were just about a hundred or seven day As opposed to the twenty twenty five thirty thousand. A day that we've been seeing in the last few weeks So people rested on laurels. It's a flood open. Its doors to tourists over the summertime salvage the tourism season which makes up a tourism makes about that. He presented the italian economy and that lead to infections. Young people going abroad and bringing it back. People kind of congregating out in the piazza's were quite busy. So yes i think that. A pretty relaxed summa and a long way is being the last country in europe to restart. Schools led to two pretty horrific autumn.
What is the risk of allergic reaction to COVID-19 vaccines?
"See those they respect getting the shots, the thought is they'll be willing to get one too. And when we reach about 70% immunity meeting 70% of us have either had Cove it or have had the colored vaccine. We can finally put away the masks and hug once again. One of those respected people who got a shop this week is Dr Kevin Slavin, a pediatric infectious disease specialist who's also director of Quality for Hackensack, Meridian Children's Health in New Jersey. ABC News producer Joy Piazza. Rupert spoke to him right after he received his vaccination. What was that process like? It actually was remarkably smooth. We have because of the limited early distribution. We've identified highest risk. Health care workers. Should be in in what we're calling Phase one and they set up this incredible process where They can administer enough vaccines in a very brief amount of time in a single location. With everybody keeping their distance. Everybody masking. And even with the period of observation that's needed afterwards to make sure that they're no immediate side effects. The The whole process from walking in the door. Registering, making sure that I didn't have any of the screening conditions that would. That would be a reason not to get the vaccine at that point. Getting the vaccine and being observed for 15 minutes. That whole process took about half an hour. Every step work exactly the way it was supposed to. I didn't wanna sort of ask how you feel right now. Do you have any sort of underlying Grogginess or fatigue or pain at the injection site. Anything like that. So yesterday my arm was a little sore. So you know I could I could I could use it. It wasn't a big deal, but it was A little bit different from what I get with most most vaccinations, but that was it. There were these couple of instances of allergic reactions in the UK, and then there were two in Alaska. Is it something that folks should worry about? If they have allergic reactions to medicine or or food or anything like that? Should they talked their doctor the way that It looks like it has come up is for people who have had serious allergic reactions before and it's certainly not everybody who's had a serious allergic reaction before. But people who've had serious allergic reactions before mostly focusing on an awful axis, which is, you know the most severe form where there could be severe swelling and your difficulty breathing. And swelling of the throat swelling of the tongue swelling of the lips, all of which presents somebody from being able to really breathe effectively. I think for people who had to severe allergic reactions that that would be something to very seriously discuss with their physician, Bilton observation time immediately afterwards where your observed in a setting We're a health care provider can administer immediate treatment. If you have that that is actually really key for anybody who wants to get the vaccine but has a zit concern that if they speak with their physician, and it felt that it's safe, making sure that it is given in a place that can provide immediate rescue treatment for a severe allergic reaction, and then get somebody quickly to a place where they can provide ongoing treatment goes, that's gonna be the real key component for that. That's ABC News.

Thank you very much right because if it's an interesting thing for us there's still kings and queens and in belgium and the netherlands spain over scandinavia. But they really have little power. But what's the purpose. Why do you. Brits willingly tax money to have kings and queens and princes printing around your country. I know that's a question that we always get asked his guides when we're doing our tours and yet one of the questions i always ask for members is put your hands up if you came on this tour just because we have a royal family. No one ever does that. We've got so much more to offer but the royal family are a big attraction for us as well because immediately. I'm sure if we just said prince charles prince william prince harry. Everyone has a visual of who they are because of the world media but for us as british citizens. It's a lot more than that. We're very personal about them. If we were to believe the Recent opinion polls approximately eighty eight percents of the british public are in favor of royal family which is quite surprising considering everyone still coming out of a depression and financial difficulties a hard but we like having the royals whether something actually practical about it and heavy responsibility to be a royal. Because do all the ceremonial stuff. I mean it's almost a fulltime job to be cutting edge hospitals and in the united states. We don't have anybody to do the ceremonial stuff except our politicians and in britain you can kind of divide. It threw the ceremonial stuff and politicians do the legislating. Yeah it's shared out between the royals. It's judy the of a sheduled which Follow i just want to reiterate what elizabeth sand and what what i think is It's a low for the royal family. I think we actually do love having a royal family On top of the huge amount of interest abroad and and brings in tourism and an income for the country to your heritage is sort of a celebration of england.

If a if a royal had a strong feeling about something what would they do. The house been royals of mid their feelings known especially prince charles on certain subjects. But as far as i'm aware they are told to sort of rain in a little bit on. Keep their opinions to themselves. So let's have a quick review of the royal family these days. Of course we've got queen elizabeth. She's getting old but she seems to be Still the metal name is did you of edinburgh also known as prince philip prince philip in their children so the eldest is prince charles who will be on next monarch followed by his sister. Princess own followed by his brother prince andrew. I'm also also a further brother. Who is prince edward. So all of these people are healthy and still in public Very match very much in the next generation. There's probably a lot of nieces and nephews. There is many nieces. And as we're speaking at the moment we've got three kings and one queen in waiting to go on the throne. What does that mean well. Basically what it means the next person in line for the throne when the queen dies will be prince. Charles right that will then be followed. By prince william his eldest son then prince william's eldest son prince george. Okay then we have his prince william's daughter princess charlotte. So i said that makes sense when the eldest son know if charles had an older daughter would she be next in line or is it still the old fashioned. Still be william. But when william and kate. Kate middleton who is william's wife when they were expecting prince george the eldest son. The law was changed if owner.

Romantic Bridges and Little Museums of Paris; Burgundy
"Of the small specialty museums in Paris were allowed to reopen weeks before the Lou, but just because they don't attract the big crowds of the famous museums doesn't mean they aren't worth your time in just a bit. We'll hear why they can be worth. Including in your travel plans next time you're in town and we'll explore what you'll find in the peaceful countryside of Burgundy and easy giant from Paris. Let's start. Today's very French edition of travel with Rick Steves along the banks of the Seine, the busy river that winds through the heart of the city. Paris to me, it's the capital of Europe and you can never get tired of ten. I just love the way the THEMM lined through. The city in the city faces. It's river and I also love the way it's laced together by bridges that just give so much meaning to your wondering through Paris. Lynch Lima is a journalist for the New York Times. She's written books about Paris to her. New Book is called. The river that made Paris, and she talks about the bridges that lease together the right bank and left bank. In Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me on your show I. Love The way your book. The Seine the river that made Paris illustrates the importance. To France end to Paris and of course, Paris was born on this end, wasn't it? Yes, there would not have been a Paris. Had it not been for the Senate and for the heels lessee tae the island that is the center, the heart of the city of Paris, and that goes back to Roman Times. Pre Roman Times Poetry Roman times absolutely now when we think about the send through the centuries through most of the centuries, it's been a mucky riverbank where. Where you've got all sorts of slime and sewer and garbage and poverty, and and then over the centuries built this wonderful embankment that sort of teams the river, and and makes it an elegant part of the city. Talk a bit about the embankment in Paris will the embankment of Paris really the way it looks like now was conceived in the nineteenth century at before that you could pretty much walk along the banks of the Seine and bring your cows and horses. Horses and dogs right into the river, your laundry, whatever now it's a little bit more challenging, although there are places right now in Paris that you can walk down into the river and go swimming if you're so inclined, but with this mighty embankment you also have elegant bridges, lacing it together to the right and the left bank, and one of my favorite things in Paris just to walk along the banks of the river, and in or cruise the river and enjoy the. The bridges I've got so many vivid memories of just being on the top of one of those river, Seine, tourist boats, and going under these glorious bridges, and the more you know about the context of these bridges, the more funded is to sail under them. Let's just go and there's four bridges that really come to mind from. Yes, I'd love to just talk about each of them as if we're cruising down the river and I. we come to the punt new. Means the Newbridge, right? It means the new bridge, even though it's the oldest bridge in Paris. And when it was built, it was finished in the beginning of the seventeenth century, it was a miracle was an architectural dazzling creation, because it was the first bridge that didn't have houses on either side, so that people would come to the pontiff and look at the expanse of the river. It became the heart and soul of Paris where. You would come and have all sorts of wild activities. You could join up for the army or by. Orange juice or have a tooth pulled or watch jugglers or exchange God. You could buy false teeth and glass is and wooden legs and life, poultry and skin whiteners, so it really was the place to be was a gathering place a Piazza for the city. It was. You know what that's exactly right? It's like a piazza in the shape of a bridge. Now when you said it had didn't have houses on either side. Are you talking like lined with houses and shops like the punt Vecchio in Florence and the London Bridge in. Exactly and that you finally had an open view to the river, and you didn't have these barriers in the shape of houses blocking your. Visual joy of Helseth Martavis city that has some pride because it's just a practical matter. If you had a bridge that you needed help, pay for and maintain. You'd rent out space to it and it would obliterate the fact that it feels like a bridge so London Bridge and the Punt Vecchio it would be lined by shops that were paying rent to the city, so they could have that great bridge. Bridge punt new F-. It's a piazza. That's great. The next bridge we come to is the punt art that right the what what does that mean, and how is it unique well? It's the bridge of the arts and I love this bridge. Because it joy. It's a walking bridge. It's a pedestrian bridge, and so it's a great bridge for picnicking, but if you stand front of this bridge at the Louvre. And look through a gorgeous courtyard, but not many people know about is called the core cafe, the square courtyard you can look through the arch, and you can see right across the bridge to the St to default on the other side of the river, which is where the economy foss says is head. You just feel like you've got this magical long view of Paris

About Antonio Vivaldi
"Antonio that's Italian for Anthony. Vivaldi was born in Venice in sixteen. Seventy eight then as the city with all the canals wasn't a part of Italy then it was an independent republic. Some records say that nobody was the oldest of six children but some say his family had as many as nine kids. Vivaldi's father was a barber who also worked as a baker and as a violinist. Vivaldi learned to play the violin from his father. We've all got something else from his father. Flaming red hair back then when a family had a lot of kids and not much money at least one boy usually became a priest. So that's what Vivaldi did. And because of his hair they called him the red priests somewhere along the line. We've all probably studied with musicians. Who worked at Saint Mark's Cathedral in Venice after awhile possibly because he had asthma? Vivaldi gave up the priestly. Duty of saying mass. Since Vivaldi couldn't do what priests normally did he started teaching music at the UH spit. La Della Pieta from the US Ballet de la. Piazza was not a hospital. It was an orphanage that was originally connected with a hospital. So that's where the name Auspey Dali came from. All the residents of the orphanage were female so volley taught and led an all girl orchestra bar people all over Europe heard about what great musicians Valdis students were. No one visited Venice without going to hear them perform their concerts. Where a huge tourist attraction? One of the most intriguing things about those concerts was that you couldn't see the musicians. Because they were hidden when they performed the audience just heard heavenly music coming from behind a fancy metal screen. Make It only guess what the girls looked like? Yvonne de worked at the speedometer. Della Pieta off and on mostly on for almost forty years composing religious music for his students to sing and hundreds of concertos for them to play. He wrote concertos all kinds of instruments but soon trumpets even mandolins at the same time. The valley had another musical career going writing operas. The valley is even more famous now than he was in his lifetime but his music was only rediscovered in the last fifty years or so. Today it's hard to turn on the television without hearing Vivaldi's music in some commercial or other especially the concertos spring from a set of violin concertos called the four seasons

How're you ewing doing Okay well thank you so much for doing this with us. Sure so isis want you tell us about how you got involved in the source family family to begin with I was living in. La Actually engaged to a famous rock and roll photographer. Rondo Shelly loved La. Look everything we were you were you originally from La. I grew up in the air force. My Dad was a military man so we lived in California before. But you know I basically basically lived Oregon California Hawaii okay. A real coastal girl. Oh actually we were living in Florida. My devastation it takes canaveral on. When was this that you are working with your photographer? Slash boyfriend in L. A. Mid Sixties. Okay actually hit meant what Jim Baker when he had three famous restaurants on sunset boulevard breath aware in the world and then the source and he was actually known as Food Goo. Jim Baker was an iconic Hollywood legend. Before he was even bother you owed. Oh Oh okay. That's news to me. In what way his restaurants were all very famous okay. Everybody went to his restaurants. They were shot as a curve. Her and he was you know he was La Player. He was very good looking and he was very inland with no one. BEADY and Steve Allen and it was the in crowd and and he was very well-known. Interesting Steve Allen of our ears so those those two people seem like unlikely. Unlikely friends because Steve Allen was sort of not very into the spiritual side of things. Do you know anything about that friendship while Jim Baker wasn't he didn't it really started his spiritual trip until he sold you old world kind of went on his journey and devise on each other before then. The way I described him Baker's he was the ultimate animal man. He's a man's man that he was lazy. And then now the women loved Kim Piazza Array of friends from Jack Lang to Paul Breaks. So well connected. When did you make the connection with him? Well when I hit lose UCLA. Before I met lawn I had gone to the old world. I was actually introduced to him and his wife. At the time I actually became very good friends with his wife. The store was kind of a whole put on us. Never really kindness connected we did we. Didn't you thought maybe a relationship or something might arise sooner than it did. It was a playboy and then I just Kinda moved onto another crowd and Net ron and then you know we were doing our studio. I haven't seen Jim in in a year or two. I heard that he opened. This restaurant called the source. It was the beginning beginning of this. That you chain restaurant that he opened up and we were looking for models for Jesus Christ superstar Mhm Booster we were doing and I love that I need some Jesus type looking people and I said well. I've heard that my old friend. Jim has him at this restaurant. There's a collection of Jesus wearing roads. I stepped onto the source doors patio. He came out looking like Moses. You know so close he wanted. Jesus and Moses. Yeah so you know is is women following him and beautiful young people at the stores and it was just like something happened I just I clicked. uh-huh never looked back. Did you have to go home and think about it and then return the next day just immediately a member it was immediately. I was Aw something happened. I would if it was if I knew this is what I was there for. I instantly blue that we had made agreements before incriminating and he confirmed that just like my destiny was that was it it was assets. What was the confirmation to just kind of agree with you or did he have some kind of evidence of that now? He looked at me and he said I. I've been waiting for you. It was like a cosmic snick download. And then he's voiced it. Okay yeah so I went back home and I told you on that. I was playing to join the first family way and I thought he would actually come with. Yeah I remember in the documentary. He was saying that that wasn't for him. Come with me. And he thought I was stark raving me now and he let me go thinking that you know in a couple of weeks I would be back but I didn't. That was that that next day you were having having Frist Bruce as a family and the sunflower and Solomon. Yeah that was the proof of Solomon and that to the studio and I got some cameras and I just started documenting. Because that's what I was used to doing. That started my path of being a family. Historian all starring in our guys keep her which is so cool and I think what really makes the source standout from so many other groups that you have so much documentation. How much of that is yours? And how did you kind of make sure that you yourself were included in the in the documentation. Well it was all mine. Basically I started it and then I was just with him all the time following him around and I became like one of the family administrators and Kinda hands the camera off to a Swiss. This brother only and by that time. He likes the whole thing being you know recording and he said this will end up saving the legacy and who has all that now. Does it take a good chunk of your house. How many photos yard? I you know she'll onto the art guys through forty some years of being here Hawaii. They started getting started deteriorating because the climate and just one day I well well you know I gotta figure this out. I gotTa do something and that was about fifteen years ago when I decided I was going to write the book. I never never intended to be the one that wrote the book but I couldn't get anybody else to do it. Some people were families didn't even know they were in the source family. They didn't Walker kids to know about the story. Okay so so how. Many of the former members G. think are still open about how they were in the source family versus what percentage would you say. Just kind of. Don't talk about it. It's buried deep in the past for them. Well since the documentaries a book and all the publicity the city and and we've had a couple of family reunions. I think everybody's pretty open to you. Know some people that that are negative negative to it and realization that we all came to and it was quite a shock to me when I think it was. We didn't all have the same. Mainly -ality is added censure thought through the Lens of our own being our own karmic experience that we had. y'All were on a different different paths with it so if we different people will get different stories everybody else. I'll have the same experience That's a really nuanced onced. Lovely view that you know we all have these different experiences and we might see them you know totally subjectively. I feel like that's A A little contrasting with some of the the ways that was presented in documentary where it felt more like father yoed is the embodiment of God and everyone in the source kind of saw him that way and he really was. What was the word? It was like your your earthly master. Something like that. So how do we do. Yes we you went through those phases through all phases from the beginning of the family we went to so many incarnations experience. The American Indian Chips the Hebrews. He took assuming everything he was on his path. Also listen incredible me but you know yes it got messy at times you know we were all all trying to figure it out including him he had to figure it out too. There was bends in the road. Yes you know. I think we all got a passing grade. We were a mystery school. We were just hippie. We were into the spiritual pursuit and it was new territory for him for all of us. Who is God? He was God to us. It's not uncommon to talk that way not uncommon to talk about being in our God goddess. Okay so what's he got in the same way that I'm God. Yeah Yeah so you know forty years ago that was just like new territory. We we saw each other gods. We saw each other spiritual beings

The Pilgrim Trails of Italy
"Hiking for a week or a month on a historic pilgrimage? Trail in Europe has become a popular Peter way for people from all over the world to rejuvenate themselves. It's gotten so that Spain's popular community. Santiago is even starting to feel a little crowded sometimes times. If you'd prefer a quiet or pilgrim route. Italy may have the answer. Sandy Brown and errands Italia have covered hundreds of miles on the historic walking trails of of Italy. And they WANNA help you give it a try. They've recently helped to found an organization called American pilgrims to Italy. And it's designed to help people like you would meet a plan. Pilgrimage hike in Italy in Sandy has written a detailed guide to tracking the way of Saint Francis from Florence to Assisi and then to Rome there joining us now on travel with Rick. Steves Steph's to recommend trails. That Saint Francis may have himself tracked Erin and thanks for joining us. Thanks for having US happiness. So Europe has these these venerable hikes. That are really long and it has these pilgrimage trails. That really have a a a little bit of a different meaning Aaron. What's the difference between just a long multiday hike in Europe that can be famous and established and a pilgrimage? Well to me pilgrimage signifies. This is a long walk to place of spiritual meaning and so to me. The first one that I ever did was the way of Saint Francis and so oh walking along pads in stopping in towns where he had been in there were stories about him had more of a spiritual context to it than just trekking. The camino goes to the supposed tomb of Saint James Ferried in Santiago de Compostela. Yes that would be the goal. People in the Middle Ages walked from Paris all the way to that northwest corner of Spain with that goal in mind Martin. Luther hiked from way up in Germany all the way to Rome. He was told to hike down there. It was kind of personal. What would you call it Sandy? A personal ordeal or a personal. I think you could say a pilgrimage also committed jar and then when he got to Rome he walked up the steps of this Accra scholar on his knees and had quite an experience. Enrollment was life changing for him so life changing that started the reformation. He did a lot of thinking and he got to Rome. I understand when when he got up to the top of those depths he kind of goes. This is all make sense exactly. It's a time when you think about these things. Isn't it now when we think about Italy. You guys are both specializing in Poke Mitch. Trails in Italy Saint Francis would be the the star of these things Send you wasn't St Francis relate to these pilgrimage trails well the VA Francesco Chess. Go the way of Saint. Francis is a modern connecting of the various different sites from Saint Francis Time and so for instance when he had a big experience the stigma experience at Santiago de la Berna. That's connected then with Google where he spoke with wolf and see see where he was born and had his last days. Okay so this is a modern. Lacing together of these stops people who want to get into whether they want to hike an excuse for hiker to actually get into the the whole life in the teaching of Saint Francis they would do this. Walk the name of your book is tracking the way of Saint Francis Triumph floors to CD-ROM. So that's what that would be. And then we hear about the FRANCI. JANA the via French ejecta is an historic walk. And so it's a little different. From the way of Saint Francis in terms of it was put together in the ancient world or in in the Middle Ages actually because there was a priest by the name of Cyrillic that was elevated to the episcopacy and he was supposed to appear in Rome to receive his Palim. which is the symbol of his office and so he walked with a retinue from Canterbury across France Switzerland down through Italy and arrived in Rome and then instructed his secretary to take notes of the way back and those notes were all contained at the Cathedral and Canterbury where they sat for thousand and years and then thousand years later people said well what is this and they put together the Modern Day via French agenda following that same modern modern day Revisit of this now does that relate to canterbury tales at all. It doesn't away because well. In case of Canterbury Tales they were ending at Canterbury Burri and the case of this. They were starting at Cantor. Okay now would. Saint Francis have actually walked on that trail on the difference. You know although it's very possible possible that he walked portions of it in order to get up to the community Santiago Kaz. He did walk. The community. Santiago did only twelve fourteen but the a piece of the way of Saint Francis that's historic that he was summoned to Rome by Pope innocent the third and he walked from. CCD Rome and ended up at the Saint. John Lateran Church. So that's one of the stops on the way of Saint Francis and it follows roughly his okay if you were so inclined you could leave a C. C. N. B. Meditating on in Saint Francis and his teaching and his experience all the way to Rome. That's actually the goal right and then the finishing point would be Saint Peter's or exactly what well we stop at Saint John Lateran But we end up at Saint Peter's then in my book I include the Pilgrimage Churches of Rome. Yeah as an option at the end because there are seven urban historic pilgrim churches. And it's about a twenty five kilometer walk and you hit. All seven of this. Church is quite an interesting walk in modern day Rome but touching on medieval medieval and ancient sites. Sandy Brown is the author of the CICERO trekking guide to the way of Saint Francis and Errands Italia heads and organization that prepares the American travelers to explore the pilgrimage trails of Italy. We have links to their websites with this week. Show at Rick Steves Dot com slash radio so sandy. When you come to Piazza del Popolo I I try to think of it? Like a pilgrim five hundred years ago. Yeah what do you think when you come to Piazza. No Popolo one thing is before you get there you would have crossed the Ponti Mill View. And that's a wonderful wonderful historic place because that's where the vision of Constantine was where the cost went back in three twelve or three ten or something. Exactly yes then and you follow the road in to Piazza del Popolo. And of course would you would say and what I would say. I is go into the Santa Maria Church and look at the car of Agios right right so that's a piece that you have to do and then we would want people to walk along the ancient streets that had toward the Vatican so so there's the street where they made the beads that go on the rosaries uh-huh and that's a street that we'd want people to go and sort of skirts along the top of the You you know a couple of other. Like Piazza NAVONA. Right on the way to Saint Peter's and if you're a pilgrim you would know that I go down this boulevard to that obelisk and then I looked to the left after nicey a dome and then I looked on there and I see a statue and you you would know how to navigate through the city by these long beautiful elegant streets that lead to great landmarks works. Yes and specially the pedestrian streets so by the time a pilgrim gets to Rome. They've walked maybe a hundred or a thousand or seventeen hundred kilometers commodores. So they're also looking for a bed and a cafe and Wanted to do the kind of walk. It'll get him in the most economical kind kind of way to their destination but then when they arrive in Saint Peter's there is a certificate that it can receive if they've walked at least one hundred kilometers. It's the equivalent on the Community Santiago. Is that Compostella. This is called the testimony. I'm okay and so that's a nice treat for us and I was going to ask you about this. I know when you go to community Santiago. You clicked this passport. Talk about the credential in the practical reason for that when you are a pilgrim in Italy heading to Rome so the credential or they called the credence Ya gala. It's of paper. That's like your passport. That's what differentiates you as a pilgrim from. Just anybody else traveling. So certain places. We'll give you discounts on your lodging. If you have your credential in basically every town you stop and you get a stamp along the way and then when you arrive at Your Final Destination Chan that sort of your proof that hey. I'm pretty awesome because I just did this. Really Amazing Walk and these are the stamps to show it in Rome. Is there actually a a regular place that you go and you can. There's there's somebody there and their job is to stamp this credential yes you go to the pilgrims office and I did not have to wait at all we went in. I was walking with with four friends and we arrived. We had to fill out a piece of paper and it was actually quite emotional thinking you know this is. My journey is officially Dinan. I'm filling out this paper showing where I started. And you get your final stamp and then you receive your like Sandy said your testimony them and then you have a souvenir for this gassing to remember and it's probably a beautiful moment

"In piazza does he baking company the nice what it's about that's exactly what it's about all points of you welcome I'm going to the website rotten tomatoes with the some movie info here on the movie which is called the hunt so when I read it to you fairly quickly because it does reinforce what I've been saying in this is a fairly simple but was not a review it it basically is the bottom line so if you haven't believe me before this is this is what rotten tomatoes says and that's a reliable website twelve strangers wake up in a clearing they don't know where they are how they got there they don't know they have been chosen for a very specific purpose the hunt in the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory a group of globalists leads gathers for the very first time at a remote manor house to hunt humans for sports but the elites master plan is about to be derailed because one of the hunted crystal an actress named Betsy Gilpin knows the huntress game better than they do she turns the tables on the killers picking them off one by one as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman two time Oscar winner Hilary Swank at the center of it all there were no reviews that I can read for you from rotten tomatoes no critical reviews no audience reviews very little no I understand that Nancy I know will hold put but I just think that that's all the information that we have to share with you six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty gotta go to Jay in New Mexico a judge how are you tonight I'm well Dan how are you Sir well little troubled by this movie in a number of levels that love to know what you think you know I love being on hold you get a real clear signal and I get to listen and it's interesting by the way you know that intro is awesome it's amazing up I really like it I you play a lot of different it's also a lot of different genres this is probably the second one I heard that was on the right John right man I love it all of them have Curtis Sloane Curtis because of of of friend of mine he goes by the name see for that he put that together for us and I do think it really does capture what night side is all about and it's funky you can't beat that I agree with you there til now wood to check Sir go ahead what's your take on this all right yeah so there was a movie there are few movies before the purge that was similar to this it was one with Terrence Howard in it I think another one what Malcolm Jamal Warner two different movies they leave another one similar I had it to me Hopkins then on what this is maybe that's not the same style but the point I'm getting at is this is business as usual honestly I'm I go see it because you know I start to listen to Dick Gregory out all these years and some of those conspiracy theories were right I wouldn't be surprised the end of this is already happening we're going to see how we actually go down so you mean I just wanna make sure I understand and I bill misquote you you think that this is a reality based movie very loosely I think that a lot of things that you see how art imitates life we see life imitating art and something that happened a light that you couldn't pick up in your wildest dreams I thought about this years ago when I first movie came out there are tons of people that especially people of color on that show up missing more you can't find them for instance still the young brother that was missing some more out west and they eventually found him wrapped up in some role with the role of the match or something in the high school and all his organs were missing so there's this things like that I'm above it there have been going on for years and years and years and somebody just try to make an offer to purchase to make all this money and now they want to get some of that money to okay interesting theory J. the difference when you talk about people who disappear people disappear in this country all the time sometimes in the country three hundred thirty million people sometimes people want to disappear and there are two cases you know we we we followed these cases is a kid gets kidnapped any open you pray that that kid comes back home but that's different I mean I'm not saying that's a good thing it's a bad thing and it's even that thing in my opinion most cases when people disappear because obviously there they feel that there's nothing that we have lost contact with friends family to touch it but this is this is basically taking it to the point of saying you're gonna have a group of people from some socio economic strata and in this case these would be the that we referred to in rotten tomatoes as globalist liberal leads as well and be talking about and they're going to find people who were kidnapped in the middle of the country so called deplorable and make a movie out of that at a time when this country is soul fractional lies and sold bifurcated did you have people within families who can talk to each other anymore moon hot is this what is moot what purpose this is this through this what what purpose does this movie serve other than to have to play to our most base instincts and I think we're you know what we see in some of this stuff people going into it in into Walmart's killing people people are going to bars and in with with high powered weapons what does that we talk about this just feeds the minds of the sickles out there I don't see any benefit here I'm not somebody who believes in censorship you know that but right but I do believe in self censorship would you almost kinda have so I'm just going to play devil's advocate here little good good burl I love you I listen to you as long as you've been on the radio listen the leg look before that so I'm not some just random calls you know you yeah I know you go ahead but I can honestly say I think on some things especially things that are more cultural that you may have a little wrong on certain things sometimes so here's my here's my take let me qualify that statement before you come at me at all I'm gonna say is that sometimes something or really what they appear to be in the gentleman before me said this is all about money this competition also come up with the next best idea let me find a loose idea from some Joe schmo somewhere down the road they gave us the script that make that though that because almost think they're like you're expecting this movie to bring a message of peace and hope in life but there's little after needle Dave I think they wrote the book somewhere that it was gonna be like there in these times quote on quote I'm not trying to get to but you know what I'm saying like like really no big surprise you can't expect them to do anything other than what they've done since their inception this movie industry is make money all of the present I think the men was William Taft and he came on and talk about some movie that was really where I get it depicted black people really negative way in fact they didn't even use black people they cover them in black face in this movie was like I think it even got an Oscar like I'm going back quite some time and I could be wrong with the president of the would you like think what you're talking about is birth of a nation which which was shown in the White House by Woodrow Wilson label okay not yeah yeah Taft was that this was one of the first movies and yeah it was an absolute racist movie no doubt no doubt okay and it was shown in the White House by a democratic president a progressive president name Woodrow Wilson but but politics aside just for second and and by the way I am picking up on what you're saying and I'm not going to disagree with you it is about money it is however bizarre you can make it the more bizarre you can make it you make money and in a free country you're allowed to do that but at the same three guys like you and me can stand up and say this is nothing but junk it feeds the mind of those and perverted in our society and if this movie basically inspires some demented person to go out and just blast people away it's great to make money but at what cost you know I don't think people need a movie nowadays I think a lot of people really just need a hug I mean it sounds simplistic but I really do I think there's somebody somewhere right now that if they got a hold or somebody show them some love or affection in a way that reaches number not that it's easy not that again I'm not saying that the simplistic but those are really big lack of that those Stevie Wonder say love's in need of love today I'm with you I'm with you on that one and that's for sure Jay I love you because you know that I I you you are challenging collar and thank you for for pointing out a point of view that that we always have to consider but again on this one I think this one is a little bit over the line on and and that's the first time that I've called that you actually agree with me on something more than once I'm gonna hang up related and listen to what other people at the sounds great say Preciado very much hope to get the chance to meet you someday okay thanks very much appreciate all right thank you thank you Jake talk too soon six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty taking a gamble here got some open lines if you know about this movie someone talked about how close are we to to see if someone said civil war I'm not looking to be in that conversation but any spray the stretch of the imagination at the same time we're very badly divided nation here we have a whack jobs in the right we have wet jobs to the left we have people on the right and left who are willing to engage in violence there was the guy in Tacoma who who attacked the ice location in Washington he's dead this is the guy you know the the people this last weekend this this encourage these people say wow maybe they make a movie about me this is six stuff folks run in Hyde Park Ron
