"Limited connectivity failures telecommunication underlying telecommunication layer. Polly can handle that for you whether it's a acp requests database request or anything and it seems like the the more that our applications become distributed whether that's a micro services whether that's just distributed monoliths. There's a lot of functionality that isn't necessarily within the same application architecture that they must rely on something external to them. So we've got to figure out how our applications become and stay resilient. They're proactive strategies that you know kind of can be used to kind of help us monitor. Our application helps. Yes oh the ones that we were talking about. The retrial of followed by the circuit. Breaker are reactive. A problem has a card. I know what it is. I can do something about it. Or i can't but it has happened and this you can't you know can't unwind that it's it's definitely happened. There are the proactive ones as well. Which allow you to. i suppose. Try to stabilize the system. Not use up too many resources or maybe that fail more gracefully. and that's that's a a nice benefit not having something that necessarily crashes gradually degrades over time. What are some of the strategies. One of the more common ones is probably the time out. I'll i'll stick with ep. Examples include. Because i've done a lot of that would hey be request. It used to be one hundred seconds was the default timeout. I'll make a request weighed one hundred seconds. I hope i got something. I haven't gotten it. I'll keep waiting potty. Would let you wrap a policy around that. The say fail after two seconds or one second or five seconds again. Databases requests to systems. That would have in a reasonable period of time which you would expect a response but the default might be very very long and it might not be trivial to set that default yourself a timeout.

You'll be copy pasting all over the place on the second point so again with kind of the awareness polly can have of the error it does allow you to potentially not retry. If it's a failure that you know it will not recover from or if it's an error that you know you need to take some alternate action like again. The simple example would be. You're not authorized. There's no point in trying to exact same thing. Let me go get a new token. And now i will retry. There are other You can pretty much introduce any delegates between retrials. Is you see fit. So it's kind of your imagination and your situation. The polly doesn't stop you from doing simple and cameras and it doesn't stop you from being nuanced and care for roland slow and that's retry polly has a lot more than retry. But again as i say. I think a large majority of people probably stop at retry. I was at Giving a talk at nbc. Once and audience. I asked you know how many people have heard a poly. I think eighty percent how many people have used it. Would retry is probably about the same percentage and then as i went through each of the resilience policies or strategies polly has fewer and fewer hands until i got to the last ones and it was like no one has used them at all. And again it's understandable. You get an enormous amount of benefit from retry. What are some of those Other resiliency policies that that that Polyester offer one of i suppose the next most common one potentially be what's called a fallback so if you've retried three times or four times or whatever number and you still getting failure you may want to perform some other action like let us know. Page an admin scale assist or something like that and it will be. It'll be the last thing..

Getting Over Yourself With Insight Meditation Society Co-Founder Joseph Goldstein
"I had the pleasure of watching some talks that you had given recently where you were talking about. What are known as the three proliferating factors. I think i have that right. Am i using the terminology correctly proliferating tendencies. What do you mean by that. And then what are they. Okay so i just out of general interest. I just want to mention the pali word for that. For liberating tendency polly's the language you know of the ancient buddhist tax because it's it's one of those terms that comes up frequently even in our modern discourse on the teachings so just to familiarize. I'll listen to that term. It's puncher and i like the pilot because it sort of as onomatopoeia sort of sounds like what it is. I'm it's just the mind for liberating elaborating from the bear elements of our experienced from the building blocks of our experience. We then build hold worlds and then get meshed in one way or another in those worlds and so there are three main tendencies which lead us in that direction. It's very helpful to become aware of them to distinguish between them and to learn how to free from them if not completely at least to have more wisdom in relating to them when we see them rising to let's basically what poncho these proliferating tendencies of mind it expands in quite a powerful way just the complexity of all lives particularly with regard to how sufferings created and how we can Become a little more free. When i've used the word historically. I must be using the sanskrit version. Because i have often said pro-panchayat it sounds like that. Difference between pauline since group which are very close. I love the term pro poncho or puncher. We're however you want to pronounce it or spell it and i've heard a translated as the imperialistic tendency of mind in. And that you hugh you take a data point from the present moment like you stub your toe and you colonize the future with his holy. Why am i always the guy who's stubs toe you know. This is gonna hurt forever and what you're talking about here. Are these three sort of runaway trains of punch that are really three of the main contributors to how we suffer as humans.

Foreign and Defence Ministers Meet Ahead of NATO Summit
"The preparatory teleconferencing ahead of this year's nato summit which begins in brussels on june fourteenth has begun and so it seems has the preliminary staking of claims on the alliance's post trump leadership. The largely unlamented. Us president was fond of beating up on nato chiding its members for failing to meet their theoretical spending commitments and france for one appears to believe trump was not entirely wrong francis. Defense minister florence. Polly has bracingly reiterated. The listen that europe needs to be less reliant on the united states for its own defence lasalle. John go hill is visiting teacher at the london. School of economics and political science He's also an advisor to nato's defence education enhancement program and he joins us now sajjan first of all. It's a couple of years. I guess since president emmanuel macron's johnny belt nato being brain dead is. Is there a pattern of french irritation with the alliance well. It is historical that sometimes member nations have expressed the concerns. Their exasperation that differences of what the alliance's purpose is being franz in particular historically Go back to a the goal and his a opposition to sun aspects of nato and it's specific task. But what you do find. Ironically is that events around europe especially russia's activities have actually helped unify the nato membership more so than ever before and there is a sense of purpose now for nato speaking in one voice Which perhaps that wasn't a few years.

Imperiled Freshwater Turtles Are Eating Plastics
"What happened is i started cutting open. These specimens that had been preserved sitting in the same collection for five or six years. And i just started took a dribble cut off. The shell opened up. You know looked at the stomach. Contents and i was shocked to find that in the ten animals that i looked at two of those animals had plastics in their stomach. Gregg polly's original plan was to compare the diets of western pond turtles. Native to the creeks of the uc davis meriem with those of redbeard sliders that have been introduced but that all changed when the herpetologist from the urban nature research center at the natural history museum of los angeles county began to look inside the sliders. And then suddenly. I thought oh man. There's a much bigger story here. Which is that. they're ingesting plastics. And we know almost nothing about plastic ingestion freshwater turtles we know. It's a huge issue marine turtles. But no one's looking at this and freshwater turtles. Plastic ingestion has been reported over and over again in each of the world's seven types of sea-turtles. But there is another three hundred and fifty two types of turtles and only five studies have ever concerned themselves with plastic ingestion in those species. That's despite the fact that more than half of all turtle species are considered threatened with extinction. Turtles are among the most imperilled groups of animals on earth freshwater turtles around the world are declining in. So you're not in a researchers aren't going out in euthanizing turtles and putting them into the museum collections on a regular basis. You know we do that for lots of other species but we're not people are going to be doing it fraternals because it's just not the right thing to do from a conservation perspective.
Poly Styrene Documentary
"Today. Polystyrene i m cliche is directed by both her daughter. Celeste bell and documentary maker pulsing charting the rise of marian elliott as she was born. She saw yellow pages ad became polystyrene and formed punk band x ray specs as we know in this foam. Celeste goes through her mother's archive and visits. The places of hutch halted. So let's listen to the trader to get a feel for it. Some people think little go should have. But i think my mother was punk rock icon. People have asked me if she was a good mom. It's hard to know what to say your rebel. Today's society paulie had our own ideas. Student full fully trends. She was a woman of color in. Dc full of white middle class. men was singing. polly was singing about. I fell in love with her. I fell in. The news actually started singing. Because right we will dive right in nora snaps point. He was a big personality but as we see her life was extremely complicated on. This is as much. Her daughter's journey as police starring life story. Was that a good way in. I think definitely I think by this point. We also board like punk defecation. This point know the way. The bbc fool punk document generation. That watches him in the in the same way. That like my dad and grandad generation. What war documentaries old thing again and again and I think it's focus the that it's kind of deified in such a like i wasn't like incredible and radical umbro which it was in some ways but also rian just reinforced the status quo in other ways. Like the thing. I think is really great why i feel like the rohbock of this narrative restarted with like the vowel between book which From a couple of years ago when she you know really gets to the kind of watson order of it in a way that is much more punk than saying like. Oh we great you know like sex pistols type branding and i thought that this documentary was like a really peaceful continuation overseas. Not done by polystyrene by her daughter. And i think it's testament polystyrene like complexity and also to her sensitivity. But then i'll say for her callousness towards adulterer as well. I think it makes were much more well rounded portray of somebody and also no. It doesn't just a pain releasing on her. You know she has her own issues but it looks at how they're exacerbated by the society around like a mixed race woman in london at that time in the punk scene. There's a bit wet don. Let says that she goes and shaves her head while she's a party jordan lydon's house and when winter comes back down they just love her releasing. That seem horrendous. In retrospect i'm sure we're just kind of par for the course in in the seventy s and the other thing i was gonna say i think is important is she wasn't postponed. She was punk like she's really part of the the formative dna not very easily gets forgotten. Like when i was a teenager Bought three for twelve pounds. Buzzcocks clash kind of burundi's wound go from and see a whatever it was but it took a lot longer. It's come across x ray specs and to hear them kind of debt day fight in the way that they deserve She had a rough up. Brixton upbringing. shoes booted at school. Punk rock was a place for outsiders is the cliche but actually you see that. It's inevitable that she is going to get drawn to something that's so creative but also that she can break whatever more that she feels that she has been put into yet absolutely I think one thing that's really striking by the way that she Shared her images. While is the like. Obviously i don't want a undress will. The sex pistols did two like bridge society but fundamentally that kind of just like a boy band put together by iron. Witten really edgy branding. And that whole thing is is about dog individualism. When really it was really nothing the saw. And i think that you know. Even the police die polystyrene style for rewards more individual. She recognized herself as a cliche. And she played with the idea of like branding and identity in a way that i find much more interesting than just like sticking a safety pin on it And i think we have to use it. Today were authenticity. It comes from a very real place whether the sex pistols Taped on summertimes travis. The problems with poly seem to stem from x ray specs residency. Cbgb's in new york when they went over us punks hauled coal. There were a lot more into drugs. And i think that london it seems to say. Was this the breaking point for the band. Is this the kind of crux in the film. I think so. I mean i mean. That's the argument fuel. Makes the About what happened to the u k Members of the dolls came over an introduced heroin to the to the uk seen quite quite a heavy way otten Concur with everything that lord said about film. I think The framing the fact that it has selected celeste stories. Her as she's dealing with navas legacy in some respects her mother had had semi other people's expectations about what she should be being Star as in and being mixed race being hauled somali in britain and she's just so in the clips that they use the archive clips which from most of them from a a great arena documentary from nineteen seventy-nine he was she's just so alive him sparking intelligence on which me a very funny and in most What she's doing. I think you know how easy it is to get coal topping to the move Nexus these achieved up by the film. I descend Points about the breakdown. the failure in a way to work out. How will she is. She's diagnosed with schizophrenia. Kind of putting for bit. has serious by disorder Move into harry christmas On also in places you alluded to neglect which she treats celeste points during the spirit journey and was pursuing a common all and happened. How different thoughts regarding way with the male and female office Think about lockdown about. How much care women having to take on board and also agree with. I think that when another book that i would put in the frame is what is alvin. Is is kathy. Adams was drafted memoir of juden in other key. Figure the kind prison to look look upon pumpkin kind of liberating. It wasn't how you think about kind of male violence. Where is actually to the nearly point it was it was quite at transgressive sexually A lot of the gay pubs and clubs were up with the next to solve it. I'm so i can imagine that. The film doesn't does kind of raise interesting questions. As well as celeste father is interviewed in it on one of us and absent biggest because he died. regional manager. And pau falcons stewart. Now again. Severi seventeen seventy six. He was quite a bit older than when they get and how much care and they seem to hide it to a certain extent as well a friends didn't really know whether they were going out with each other or not. We just didn't look particularly cool Strangely enough this film from that era with hangs connor in it could breaking gloss than nyein and strangely seems to be almost so the police story in way which becomes this incredible figure And has sta machiavellian manage aaron and has this breakdown and so on so until daniels place. This full manager boyfriend Is i think it's really five documentary. Actually i think you mentioned he was a guest. Shot means the fact that one of zoe's earlier books whose how's your dad's some which is a an account to of stars children's. She's absolutely perfect for collaborator. On this end coming book as other as good as andrew. Did you like this a did. I really liked it because as as long as it's very fresh indifference it's a dream like quality.

Yeah i've always about acronyms because hatches and didn't stop not your kind of off the pex tickets sold. It's it is a personal journey. It's quite slow and quite like i say quite dreamlike and which i found very refreshing change from the usual stakeouts poke documentary. I remember when i was a kid. I thought i thought police really disturbing because i lived in a very white suburban middle of nowhere type place and you just seems so odd and the fact that she but were shut brace on top of the pops and i now say that that is really good thing that it should be disturbed a little. You not white kids in places where i lived in in middle. middle class. spices. To encounter is person who didn't look like a boss didn't like pasta but was absolutely transfixed thing

‘Recall Newsom’ effort gains more than 1.3 million signatures
"Story. Everyone in California talking about today and now nationwide is the recall movement against Governor Governor Gavin Newsom. Over the weekend. We got word of 1.3 million signatures is the current tally, according to recall organizer's 1.3 million signatures. That means that they're on a pace of about 100,000 week. They need to get to at least 1.5 million quality signatures. But in order to know that they got the signatures, they've got to get two million. Two million signatures. Let's see 100,000 per week and we've got seven weeks left where at one point yet it's very going toe to be very close. But we have to keep the pace we're on. Get to the two million so 1.3 million signatures was the big announcement this weekend. They need two million signatures that would require about 100,000 signatures each and every week through March, 17th. Which is the deadline to submit them, But for you and me to collect them were probably really looking at March. Mm 8/9 or 10th. To submit them to the campaign so they could be properly reviewed, vetted, processed and submitted to each of the county registrars of voters. Now there's also been big developments over the weekend in terms of candidates getting in the race. We had John Cox on this show on Thursday of last week. Well, on Saturday, he announced it's official. He's running for Governor, John Cox ran in 2018. He was the Republican nominee. Um And he said he's running because Newsome is really that bad, and he's learned a lot about how to run races from his last race. Also right wing activist Mike Son of Bitch who has a big following on Twitter announced today that he is also going to file papers to run for governor if the recall qualifies. Kevin Fucker is still saying he's looking at it. But his team said he raised a million dollars $1 million and he put out a tweet saying this is a movement. Really a million dollars. Well, what he doesn't tell you is that the million dollars came from 13 fat cat donors. Kevin That's not a movement. Must you put a word with the letter B at the beginning of it, But anyway, the point being, we now have candidates. They're stepping forward and running on the Republican side. Lots of them. Also a billionaire has put $100,000 into backing the recall effort. Chammah, Polly Tapia. He's a Internet guru big following on social media. He is very, very wealthy. Challenged him last week that if he's going to run for office, he better pony up and give money to the recall. He has done that $100,000 to back signature collection. By the recall committees now In a in a sign that Gavin Newsom is taking this recall threat much more seriously. He's not only beginning to cave on important policies like the State Home Warner, or last week, he was indicating. Very big shift is coming on his decision to back government teachers unions to force kids to stay home and keep the school shut. But now we're seeing actual money being spent against the union. I'm sorry against the recall The National Union of Health Care Workers today rolled out a digital media campaign where it is running ads asking thousands of Californians to sign a petition opposing the ouster effort. Uh, the funding of these ads not only designed to dissuade people from signing, but they're also Reinforcing that If you signed their petition, they can get your name off of the recall paperwork in case you signed as some a mistake in case you were confused. Not a whole lot of people are gonna be confused. But what you're going to find, though, is that the unions and Newsome are now going to start pushing counter signatures. They're called withdrawal forms. Under California state law, someone who signs recall paperwork can take their name off of the recall petition after it's been submitted to the state. By signing a roux withdrawal petition. Why would you sign a petition to recall a state official and then turn around and sign a withdrawal? Well, yeah, you could change your mind. But what Newsom in the government unions and Democrats are banking on Is that people may be confused. They may not know what they're signing. So, for example. The National Union of Health Care Workers Campaign. Is emphasizing not the recall of Newsome. They're saying signed the petition because quote Now is not the time. To move Caliph Now is the time to move California on Medicare for all You see what they're doing? There is they're trying to make Medicare for all the issue, which is among some voters popular, even some Democrats popular They may not know what, exactly what they're
GameStop Stock Soars as Reddit Investors Take On Wall Street Bets
"Stop the video game retailer. Stock has rallied over six hundred eighty percent this month and in the last couple of days the stocks volatility has pretty much everyone talking. So what's going on. First of all game stop is for the average mall going consumer dying brand a relic of simpler times when we used to have to physically go to the store and wait in line for the newest call of duty or for the latest harry potter book. So it's no surprise. That game stop has been a target for wall street shortsellers its demise has been foregone conclusion. So short and game stop. That is betting that game stop would continue to. Depreciate could have been a good bet except short-selling is risky and your losses if you lose that bad or basically limitless since there's no cap on how valuable the company has bet against could become so even riskier if stock you've shorted starts going up. You can essentially cut your losses without getting too in the weeds market mechanics here. When a lot of short seller's designed to cut their losses on a shorted stock. That's now suddenly going up it triggers. What's called a short squeeze. Demand goes up. Supply goes down. Price goes up more shortsellers. Try to cut their losses. It's a vicious cycle and one that can result in massive losses for their shortsellers and giant prophets for those who've invested in the stock on the way up which is when a popular reddit. Forum called wall street bets figured out that game stop was the most shorted stock in the us markets. It wasn't hard to convince reddit users in the forum to buy up enough stock in game. Stop to trigger that short squeeze making retail investors of bundle and sticking it to the wall street big guys in the process. This was all encouraged in many ways by high profile investors with a hefty social media presence. Jamaa only petia tweeted that he'd bet on the stock increasing himself cameron winkle voss of the winkle vi- suggested he might go along on the stock and must only tweeted that he was aware of the situation just aware of the situation in game. Stop took off again. In after hours. Trading and to wall street bets credit. The plan worked amid game. Stops rally shortsellers on wall. Street have accumulated over five billion dollars in losses year to date and that includes nine hundred million loss on monday and one point six billion lost on friday. As you're about to hear hedge fund. Melvin capital took an enormous loss on the bet so much so that rumors of bankruptcy were swirling on that wall street. Bet sub reddit. But the founder of melvin told our own andrew ross sorkin. The rumors aren't true. Here's andrew now some breaking news this morning on this game stop story. We've been reporting all morning. Having talked to gay. Plock into runs. Melvin capital gay. Plotkin saying that. Melvin capital has been out closed out its position in the stock force. That company was Firm i should say with short looks like lost a ton of money but short that company up through Before the end of the close yesterday but Gabe saying that They got out yesterday afternoon. Of course the question is what happens now. Game stop a game. Stop shares Melvin capital had to take in an additional close to three billion dollars in new capital citadel. Coming to the rescue along with point seventy two. This is a remarkable saga With game stop so many of these investors no really no longer really investing on the fundamentals of what's happening against up but more just continue to push up the stock and we've seen so many folks like you on musk. Go take to twitter about it. Chihua- polly fanning the flames. So there's a lot of fan fan. Flame fanning taking place right now big questions about regulators where they are what they should be doing a lot of criticism and critique online as saying that if you think manipulation what do you think wall street is doing everyday to us the retail investors so. There's a sort of a pop psychology dynamic at play. And i think we're all we're all learning and try and understand what it means but also what it means in the future for the ability of retail investors to get together on places like read it and other places Form an army of sorts and try to push up The stocks in in certain cases like this. So i'm at a loss for words. Joe i really am where are the regulators and is this just the beginning situation. We all do have a lot to say on this but you you obviously have a lot to san. That's interesting but obviously the plane with the calls. And you're you're seeing calls that are one hundred dollars out of the money going for nineteen dollars and things that you've got markups going from two billion to twenty five billion. Obviously everything you're saying we understand. This is this is a game obviously and these guys. When i put five dollars on a ncaa game that. I don't care that much about that's the same as jemaah putting a couple of hundred grand on some calls or lan or any of the guys were talking about this. I think it's kind of responsible. The kind of laughing about it laughing all the way to the bank. But you know there are market makers that have to take. How'd you like to be short some of these calls. Can you imagine being short some of these calls. Especially if you're not covering i mean you can lose. You can lose ten times your money. Unlike a regular investment where only lose one hundred percent. I mean this this this makes this makes bitcoin look like t-bills if you think there's speculation and crypto when you when you look at something like and now they're looking for the next mark right they'll find another game stop once they're done with game stop but in the meantime there's gonna be blood all over understand why i understand why elon musk is doing it. He hates the shorts. They've you know he's right. Thinks it's a game where he's playing a game to understand he's playing the game too. I don't understand why tomatoes doing this. I don't understand why the winkle loss guys doing this. I mean this is i. It's nothing about me. Said too much money it and if you if you think people look unkindly at the wealthy at this point like wait till you see what happens with with the retail investor who gets sucked into thing and gets caught in the trap with who can't afford to lose the money like these guys are doing. I'll tell you the thing there. There really is a merry band of retail investors. Out there both already but increasingly and this is what i think even more concerning i spent a lotta time night reporting this out but also spending time on the in some of these rooms there are places people are going out into encrypted rooms onto telegram onto signal where they where they effectively are planning their next raid. Where they're trying to look to say. Okay where can we do. You know who can we take down next. In this case it was capital that they were seeking to take down. That's why i think the news today that they're out maybe potentially a turning point. I don't know. I don't. I don't know what turns this stock back into some kind of a normal
Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones review – a murderous Who-dunnit comes alive
"The recent. You know kind of low budget animation. That they've been doing the more cost effective animation. I should say and thankfully we it was released in twenty twenty and finally have a complete story so this is one of the things on my to do list that i wanted to get to as soon as possible when i was making the new schedule. So this story written by david ellis and now the hulk or zydeco the incredible malcolm hulk who wrote a bunch of notable stories from the patrick troughton in jon pertwee eras including will. Hey the war games. Patrick crowds final story the celerion. The first appearance of this larry ins ambassadors of death which was really cool story that we talked about here it also the seat devils a fun story with the master that we haven't talked yet so that's one of those that hopefully we'll get to at some point here on next up. This was directed by jerry mill. This was the eighth serial of doctor who season four nineteen sixty seven starring. Patrick troughton as second doctor. Unida wills as poly right. Michael craze as been jackson in. This is betty polly's last story by the way. And frazer hines as jimmy mcrae. Mid who at the end of the story gets a promotion to main companion after benn polly Exit the tartus closing out the way of heart once and for all so jesse. I know that this is probably your first time watching the story. I'm guessing david your thoughts about it. So i yeah and i'm gonna have a couple of questions we'll get you that i assume you're going to cover in trivia but just in case you want yeah So i settled down to watch this Linda was out of. Linda was spending the night with her sister. Kaya in a many birthday celebration. And so i watched the first dealer yes. I watched the first three on friday. Night and i watched the remaining three on saturday And i enjoy the. I enjoy the last three a lot more than i did. The first three now. I think part of that may have been. I was a little tired. It was today but also think the first three were a lot of setup. Yeah in once the next three you got really a lot of the story and was really well done so overall. I'm pretty happy with this one. I'm glad we got to see it. Yeah and And i'm looking forward to talking to you about it but my question is In you've probably covered this before. But i have slept since then. Why was so much of patrick. Totten's episodes lost and specifically about this. Well there was a purge by the bbc to essentially make space as i understand it and in the process they junked a bunch of old doctor. Who's they didn't think they needed them anymore. In their infinite stupidity and a lot of them were were episodes. From the william heart. Oh and patron eras you know there was in levin and some others that had managed to recover some of those over time because this was believed in the seventies and since then you know there's been a lot of effort by fans to try and recover episodes which have either been somehow scattered to the winds across the entire globe and or just play lost in this story. They'd only managed to recover episodes one in three. That are returned to the bbc archives. Because hey now they want to keep them a what. I what i find interesting. Charles is the seventies relatively speaking. I mean i love. Lucy had been in syndication. So you think people would have realized the Cordao yet and the importance and also. I know that they talked about that. Many of the early tonight show episodes back with johnny carson. The same thing they just re. They didn't keep them. They did because they didn't think they're reporting. And i remember years ago. I talked to someone and he was british. And he's like yeah doctor who it's it's just the it's just a minor kid show. Yeah i'm sure that was the ski. Oh executive thinking yes the super geniuses as wylie coyote super genius exact who made this horrible decision probably thought. Well it's just a kid show doesn't matter you know they. They won't miss it. We've already done Because back in the day dear listeners you used to have summer reruns until you would show an episode twice and and it was kinda done. So i'm sure they were thinking okay. We've already had a repeat time to move on. It's just it's it was just a really bad unfortunate thing that happened to the show because you know like a lot of classic moments are just now lost in presumably. A lot of these are never going to be available in their original format. Now they're going to be like stories like this. That would probably be reconstructed through animation. Or maybe whatever happens in the next ten years technology wise that they could be recreated so now and i guess they had audio right so now the audio either fans have the audio or someone in so that's for steps are recreating it. Yeah thankfully now though. The upside that. I should mention was that through the efforts of fans a lot of kids at home you know. They had their home tape cassette recorders right. Or whatever you know recording real

I know how to cook are related to. . Kenyan <hes>. . <hes>. . So you know there's that you know for me it's like okay spent Kansas. . But then there's like my mom's oldest twelve. . So we have relatives in like Missouri. . CHICAGO. . Spread out across the Midwest also an west coast, , and then in Canada's I was able to. . have. . All that in my upbringing I was against which was nice. . I grew up in Los Angeles and my parents. . Republic. . So There were Dominicans here, , but they were all over the place. . It wasn't like. . In Miami or New York where you have a real concentration. . A. . I was really aware of my otherness because I would mean people would look at me and assume that I was just I was African American and Latino expect me to speak Spanish and they will look the they always just what like Way Right women was at a similar experience for you. . You know honestly it's been easy for me. . Yeah. . Because you know as later as I got older when I was still in Kansas and I hung out like other Africa. . It never felt like African enough. But . some points because. . Came when I was like four when I came actually had half a speech tutor. . English until maybe I think six was really hard. . I had I like combined English in. . So Healy in Koo are tribal language into one language only my mom and my sister could understand. . For for for so long when I was when I was young, , I was like a baby like literally only understood <unk> tutor in all of that and so you know eventually when I am older, , I'm in my middle school in the my first year of high school really like a middle school year is when I was hanging out with other Africans is like they all knew me in I? ? Did it felt out of place and then also you know what I did have like my outside of Africa is like my other friends in other fronts in general that are Americans that I must like. . There's a lot of cultural like things that I didn't understand until much. . Later a lot of just you know, , for TV shows that music to the food like a lot of things I wasn't exposed to unless I saw that on my own centuries by friends who introduced me to that because my parents did though it was weird at times for more so I guess when I went to Oregon. . Last. . A little different. . You know like 'cause I joined like what is what I could tell this later Fast forward into like when I actually dmed Undergrad University of Oregon a PWI and I was part of be issue in Asa African Student Association club. . But like a lot of the BS you is like I didn't know about the movie, , Friday. . I didn't know about all these different staples that I I should have. . No you know just different cultural things like that I also later. . Caught. . Up On between then I was. . Doing. . Good realized. . Parts of you know American culture black culture. . You know like that was missing out on because of my up gate. . So. . This is by Felicia you go. . To. . You find that now considering what you do that otherness is sort of an advantage. . Actually I think. . So because you know for me, , I find that I can adapt to any community I've lived in Kansas I loved Oregon. . In Arkansas I lifted a Virginia. . The DMV area. . Being exposed to all those places? ? Right. . There are different communities now Brooklyn, , which is huge right and so for me, , I, , feel like I could really be able to like talk to anyone and everyone and with the community that I'm building black people are not a monolith right? ? So all of them are so different in their own way a lot of them have different UPBRINGINGS and perspectives. . The next person right next to them don't have. . So for me, , I'm learning from them. . Think they're learning from each other. . You know it's still early but I see that I see how we're also different. . We're all tied to like similar experience.

Turn around but. It was absolutely about Shyam and it was the shame. When you unpack it that not just that I've felt like intellectually I can deal with that, but on a on a really deep level.

Achi, my taste, the women in the reason they held themselves back that they're told from birth, not enough reinforced over and over and so. It's really kind of interesting.

Looking. Like. You couldn't get more of a sausage fest than it was putting people in a boxing ring for that in shop tank and I think that really speaks to the heart of one of the reasons. It's so difficult for women to to find that grounded place in this up sector, but you're right. I mean I think much as I. Love Rabbit Holes. I love startups for the same reason because it's like you know what you're going to get. It's the mystery of popping down that hall following the ultimate. New Shiny thing, isn't it?
