Thinking women could be hot enough to look good in their underwear here. What their CEO had for himself from the onion and onion public radio? I'm Leslie Price and this is the topical you visit. Our newspaper's website in the site for yourself. What's worth paying attention to warn? You could just sit back and leave all the thinking to us. Sounds pretty good. Donut stay with us. The often scrutinize lingerie brand. Made a stunning about-face today announcing that after months of deep reflection over modern beauty standards and the brand's role in it Victoria secret while shut down all operations due to overwhelming evidence that women were never actually hot enough to look good in the company's lingerie in the first place Victoria secret posted a video on its twitter page this morning announcing the shuttering of all manufacturing of slip panties halters thongs and other central nighttime wear for the foreseeable future CEO. John May Haas had this to say in the video. We had to face a hard truth today for decades swimming of all shapes and sizes just have been a little too ugly to wear underwear for us to think otherwise was a mistake and we understand that now. The beauty industry needs to evolve and that begins with Austria that it's not right to expose our product to the hideous and unevolved female form. Opr's Rebecca has been following. The story joins me now. Hello Rebecca Hi Leslie. So what went into this? Massive decision Victoria secret executives took a long hard look at their operations and found that the brand had an undeniable history of setting unrealistic standards for women that made them feel like they were good looking enough to pull off lacy boy shorts or see through nighttime slips meant to tease out the shapes of their nipples. Here's May House again. We simply have blinders on thinking that any living female could pull off our hot pink thongs covered in rhinestones. We were so foolish. And how is the fashion world reacting with shock but several of the brand's star lingerie models actually applauded the brand's new stance? Here's Victoria's secret angel. Lily Aldridge in a video posted instagram. I'm six foot two. I weighed one hundred five pounds and I haven't had a blemish my skin for five years.

I ever thought I could pull off a strappy least Keeney panty sis just a crack while and is there any hope that women could evolved one day to be the Hot Babes? Victoria's secret demands them to be isn't holding out hope but he did address that in his announcement on twitter. Today maybe one day your daughters or your daughter's daughters will actually be banging enough to strap giant wings on their backs and walked down my runway and Silky Pajamas looking like hairless bombshells below the neck. But we're unfortunately a long way from that day it's time for women to go back to the drawing board and figure out how to look better. So what are women supposed to do? Now if they can't spend thousands on thin straps itchy lacy material being passed off as underwear Victoria secret did say that women could continue purchasing the brands lotions and perfumes to give them the sense of what it feels or smells like to be an attractive woman but discouraged them from thinking for a second. There are actually pretty interested to see how this plays out that's OPR's Rebecca Neal. Thanks Rebecca thank you. Hello topic a listeners. Today I wanNA talk to you about a very serious problem that is affecting more and more people each day over six thousand Americans are strangled to death by their tangled headphone cords and as someone who once accidentally strangled himself to death with a pair of wired ear buds.

Half the price of other premium wireless ear buds on the market. And they're guaranteed not.
Defining Moments In Our Lives Where Fear And Courage Meet
"You so much for being with us on untangled today. We are just thrilled to have you here. Thank you so much wonderful summer day here in Santa Fe. Oh, that's awesome I wanted to start by asking you the question. I love the book. I read it this weekend. Just devoured it and wanted to understand what inspired you to write this particular book I've had the good fortune to be working in the end of life. Life Care Field, and in various other fields, including working with people corporations, working in humanitarian efforts working as a volunteer, the penitentiary system, working with educators, and it just been for fifty years, and I've had the opportunity to hear people who want to serve others who are engaged in service to others whether in education or medicine or law or business hearing them speak about the kinds of challenges. They experience in their work service to others. And it has been an extraordinary experience for me because one thinks that being a good person opening one's life to a world of service whether you're a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer and educator, or even a parent that this is work that is continually easy, but it's not necessarily a so, and so I began to look at the consistent patterns in relation to states that are considered to be virtuous like altruism or empathy or integrity and respect and engagement and discovered that. That there are shadow sides to these important human capacities, and that the shadow sides are often a source of great suffering, not only to those who are serving, but to those who are being served so I wrote the book I wrote the book in part because I also saw that the lever or the means of transforming the shadow side of these virtuous states is compassion, and so the last section of the book. It's you know is about compassion, yeah, and you. You just mentioned the edge states, and you talked about being at the edge can either gives us great potential for growth, or for suffering, depending on how we face our situations, and you also mentioned that like our toughest challenges can be our most valuable source of wisdom. I'm so curious about what is the difference between people who fall apart when they're challenged in these situations and the people who do become wiser, and who are able to grow. How do you think about? About that I don't know what the common feature is. Because what I've seen is that this potential for transformation exists within all of us and I think that's really important for all of us to understand that we all have this capacity to actually shift out of these conditions, and to that caused us so much suffering, and in the process of shifting to actually become stronger as a result of this transformation process. In my experience, it can happen to any kind of person. But that shift also involves as I said before opening up the experience of fundamental compassion, and when I talk about compassion, I'm speaking about this capacity to actually attend to our own experience into the experience of others as well as to have the intention to actually transform suffering and various other qualities, which I described in relation to compassion, but it's like in our day profundis in our deepest most difficult moments. This is where and Rebecca Sola talks about this. There is hope in the darkness. I Look Patricia as someone who has. been through a lot in relation to my own work as a time of kind of it's an experience of building character if you will when we fall over the edge, find ourselves in great difficulties, and we managed to pull ourselves out of the difficulties, and as a result of that, we're actually strengthened, and we have more capacity. There's

I believe out of his living room at the time, but still streaming it live and and He took colors and They conspire to to flood his call so that when he picked up the caller busted out singing chocolate ray. And then Tom Green, yes, and then as we say, in Prague, he's like Oh. Yeah, oh! They? ended hung up on the caller because. He. realized. You've been punked pranked and I saw a clip of this and I was like Oh. That's Kinda cool This known person at least not ever watched Freddy got fingered, or but but I know he's a little bit fan. Saying my song and that was kind of a little bit of a cool moment, and then right after that it started to blow up as a national news story where Carson Daley featured it on his show NBC which was in a standard late night format at the time.

The man in the picture was believed that the man had encountered a whales. He was holding Harpoon like object in the image. TIFFANY's face. That was fun. they couple had the image on display in their home for years in December of two thousand and seven, the couple decided to share the image on flicker and titled it a one eyed man with Harpoon super, super creative, so one win was. When did they have it? In their home? Court were the years they had in their home, but they didn't post it till flicker until two thousand seven. Okay, so they decide like a random picture of some random disfigure. Yeah, some people collect mentioned photographs. My Dad is one of those on. This might make him happy.

Not Too long ago, we had quite an awesome conversation, and not only did. We have at one on one, but then we ended up having a lot of people on the conversation, and it was a lot of fun, but our initial conversation really inspired me because it was really not only. Did you embrace? Me As a person, but you just ended up bringing out a lot because of the things that you had just in your inner spirit, and one of the things that you shared was your history, and it was your family traditions, and not just how genetically made you were?

As EPA Steps Back, States Face Wave Of Requests For Environmental Leniency
"Hundreds of factories, refineries, farms and mines across the country say they cannot comply with environmental regulations because of the pandemic. This is according to an NPR review of hundreds of state environmental records. Those records show that companies have asked for a wide range of special permission during this pandemic including things like delaying checking for leaks in storage tanks and measuring pollution from smokestacks and pure science reporter Rebecca Hersher is here to talk about this, Becky, hi, there. Okay, so industry is saying there's a pandemic. We need some special allowances here. What exactly are we talking about? Well, it's a real drag. Some of the issues are relatively minor like submitting an annual report late, but I also found a fair number of substantial requests, mostly from industries that release a lot of pollution like landfills have been asking states to relax pollution monitoring rules hog farms have asked for permission to house extra animals, because meatpacking plants per temporary closed and oil and gas companies ask for states back off and enforcement of a wide range of environmental regulations. I mean, be understand why an oil or gas company has trouble being able to check for pollution because of a pandemic. Well there are a couple of reasons. Navy furloughs get in the way like if employees who usually right in filed pollution appurtenant working because of the pandemic, another reason the companies gave is that a lot of pollution monitoring is done by outside contractors and they were trying to limit people coming onto facilities because of the virus. We know these details, though because a small number of states make them public, but another problem here is that no one is systematically keeping track of these types of nationwide requests. no-one keeps an eye on. Who On these industries and with? They're asking for right now. Why is that? Well in March? The Environmental Protection Agency the EPA put out a pandemic policy that said companies don't need to warn federal regulators if they feel like the pandemic interfering with routine pollution, monitoring or testing instead, they said states could keep track of that information if they choose to. The EPA says, this is out, works it partners with states, and that is how a lot of environmental regulation. Regulation works although former EPA officials say this policy gives industries a lot of leeway now some states are doing this kind of tracking, but I've found that most kids don't publish any information about which companies say. The pandemic is getting in the way, and that means most Americans who live near factories refineries farms. They have no way to know whether the pandemic is causing extra pollution. I mean that kind of uncertainty is is a big problem for for people who live near these sorts of facilities I would imagine. Especially for people who live downstream or down wind of facilities that have have violated environmental laws in the past on a found a fair number of examples like this, so for example there's a minor Indiana in early April, the mine said it was releasing wastewater with high levels of ammonia and small particles, because they were cleaning buildings with a lot of bleach to kill the virus that same mino ins repeatedly violated the clean water act passed by releasing water with two small particles in it and I talked to a local resident who lives downstream. He was really frustrated. John Blair. The air pollution is visible. The water pollution is less visible and you know I mean almost anything could be blamed on the virus I suppose. Now. The state told the mind to stop releasing water with titles, Manja and many of the requests I looked at were denied, but the only reason we know about that interaction is because Indiana published a publicly in most states are not doing which means most Americans are in the dark.

The Prestige Nolan
"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam are and I'm Josh Larsen. Every magic trick consists of three parts first. Paul is cool. The pledge magician shows you sound olery columns bird or May that was Michael Cain right. We're done with the trip. That was Michael. Cain with some of the opening narration from Christopher Nolan's The prestige we revisit the directors fifth feature as part of our Nolan who've review this week in addition to that we're going to recommend to new films that recently came to the od the vast of night and the painter and the thief that more. Are you watching closely ahead on film spotting? Welcome to film spotting. Josh in an alternate timeline. We'd be spending this post Memorial Day weekend show singing the praises most likely of fast and furious nine. Oh Yeah I'm sure I'm sure we'd both be huge fans I haven't been keeping up with. What would have been released because it mostly depresses me. So this is to me after nine atom as the as the real fans would call it. Don't let Debbie here that that was supposed to come out because she'd probably forced me into a fast and furious marathon at home in memory of it instead. Of course we are talking about films new. Vod We're going to do a little golden brick spotting in this episode. Indeed there are two new films that meet the criteria for our golden brick or D- that's are overlooked or under unforeseen film of the year. Honor that we give to a mostly newer at least new to US filmmaker. We've both seen the new documentary the painter and the thief and I'm also going to recommend the vast of night that's a low budget sci-fi thriller that comes to Amazon Prime this weekend. Of course we're also pinning all our hopes of summer movie season on the theoretically opening tenant the latest from Christopher Nolan. Somehow the word theoretically there just seems so appropriate when talking about Christopher Nolan Anyway. That is still scheduled as of this recording anyway to come to theaters on July seventeenth seven. Seventeen chosen for being a gallon. Drome like the title of the film. Josh I'm sure that you knew that and we can trust. Christopher Nolan is GonNa try to be Oh so clever. Right yes now. A surprise. Our Own Nolan who've review which has revisiting all of Nolan's films is currently scheduled to wrap up in time for that July seventeen release otherwise all of this preparations going to be for naught. Joshua we need ten to get to the big screen in the meantime. We're going to get to his two thousand six film. The Prestige perform this feat in a manner and never before seen by yourselves or any other audience anywhere in the world. Odeon SELECTA is trees topnotch. You'd celebrate a real magician. Tries to weaver something you got something other. Magicians will scratch their heads over spoke. You have such a tweet as you're gonNA remember me for what happened. Just mentioned triggered overseen. I need to know how he does it. He has no. It's real every great. Magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called the pledge every Great Christopher Nolan movie consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called the pledge. The filmmaker shows you something ordinary with his fifth feature set in late nineteenth century London. It's two rival. Magicians Hugh Jackman sophisticated. Showman. Robert in Jira and Christian Bale's committed professional Alfred. Borden the filmmaker shows you these characters. Perhaps he asks you to watch them to see if they are indeed real on altered normal but of course they probably aren't. The second is called the turn. The filmmaker takes these characters and makes them part of something. Extraordinary are period piece becomes gothic science fiction a meditation on the moral limits of science in pursuit of knowledge the consequences of obsession. Now you're looking for the secret but you won't find it because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You WANNA BE FOOLED. But you wouldn't clap yet because one of our magicians finally winning isn't enough. Our minds have to be blown. That's why every magic trick has a third act. The hardest part the part we call the prestige fairly early. In the film. Bordon's life Sarah played by Rebecca Hall reveals. He's going to be a father. He shows her the trick. That's going to put food on their table. A bullet catch which he performs for her to prove. It's safe like any of us. Observing great trick. She wants to know the secret and insist. She can't comfortably allow him to do it unless she understands the mechanics of it he relents she replies disappointedly once. You know it's so obvious Josh. Any rewatch of the prestige requires that you know the twist and equipped with that knowledge. It does all seem well pretty obvious like Sarah did that Lee disappointed or even more impressed with Nolan sleight of hand. I am really glad you asked this question because it helped me clarify a little bit. It helped me locate one of the reasons. Why and I'll stay at say at the front here. This is still topped here. Nolan for me really love this film. I think it's incredibly strong. But your question. Help me locate one of the reasons why. I might have liked it a little bit less this time around. And it's not so simple as knowing the twists or knowing the surprises because confession. I don't think I watched the prestigious since two thousand six and I had mostly forgotten how everything unfolded now. Yeah the hints and clues pieced together in advance in a way that I did not in. Oh six but it's different from not knowing anything so I was still pretty much in the dark as this movie began. So it's not just that I knew the answers. It's and I'm not sure it disappoints even in terms of its reveals but in comparison is something like as before we started recording. You had mentioned the six cents so comparison to something like that which we did revisit just last year And is another case where it it hugely depends on its reveals. Its twists turns. It surprises
The Pandemic Cut Down Car Traffic. Why Not Air Pollution?
"So there was definitely one picture but I remember seeing a freeway in Los Angeles arguably the traffic capital of the United States and there were no cars. It was like empty for your way clear blue sky and now you came here on this podcast and you're taking that all away from me. Well actually the air was cleaner in Los Angeles in March. It was the longest stretch of cleaner that had been recorded in decades. And you know that's a big deal for la because there is not great. Sometimes there's high levels of ozone Which is a pollutant that sworn by all the that comes out of tail pipes and smokestacks and power plants? What it does is it. It mixes in the air ground level. You add some sunlight and you've got ozone and it's not good stuff it exacerbates respiratory and cardiovascular illness so it makes sense that everybody would be pretty psyched about cleaner air. Yeah and it seemed like that made sense right with all the lockdown and people staying at home. I mean they started asking the air regulators about that like Philip fine of the South Coast Air Quality Management district through a lot of pressure on us to come up with the answer that everyone wanted to hear which the is that the covid nineteen measures have cleaned the air and southern California. But here's the thing it was also really Ramey in. La During the same time and rain helps clear out the air so as the weather is dried out. Recently air quality has gotten worse again. I mean went back to the unhealthy. Category actually yeah. Okay so I guess when you think about. There was this forty percent reduction in traffic and only a fifteen or so decrease in ozone in lots of parts of the country. It's not nothing right like not much. Not A ain't nothin' yeah. It certainly helped some but you know believe it or not sound kind of strange cars are not. La's biggest source of pollution comes to the pollutants that make ozone And that's actually true in a lot of places in the US Which is fine told me that means what's happening. Now with reducing car traffic just enough read a lot of newspaper articles over the past couple weeks decided if only we can have people telecommute one day a week across the entire base in our air quality problems will be solved and unfortunately it's not that simple. That's because the big source in La is trucks A reason is because there's just a lot of shipping that comes through the ports of L. A. and Long Beach and they handle about thirty percent of the country's shipping container traffic and that gets moved around on trucks after it comes in so traffic. It didn't decrease as much as the car. Traffic did so that pollution was still being omitted. Okay so trucks are the problem in La. Becky would about places yet so other places have other pollution sources like Pittsburgh. We looked at Pittsburgh and ozone only felt by nine percent about between mid-march and the end of April and when I asked atmospheric chemists about this they were like the reason is coal. Oh the Col- cold. It's burned to make electricity primarily but also call. It's used to make steel right. The history of Pittsburgh is all about steel scar. Have some very active industrial sources near the city in this kind of at the University of Pittsburgh? Emily Elliott says Cole is really dirty work in closer proximity to the places that are generating power coal fired power plants in the Ohio River valley that contribute quite a bit to pollution. Okay Sup- Pittsburgh has coal. La Trucks anything else. I should know about. Yeah Houston has this thing with factories. Oh Right Rebecca Hersher. We've talked about that on the show before indeed. We have and for those who might not remember Houston has one of the largest concentrations of petrochemical facilities in the country so to see how ozone levels have changed their versus other places. That was an interesting question for us. And what we found. Is that those facilities. They mostly kept operating during the pandemic actually in fact a lot of them they make the raw materials for masks and gloves the PCP hospitals need so desperately right now. So I'm guessing that ozone levels decrease a lot in Houston exactly ozone decrease less in Houston than did in La okay so it sounds like industrial pollution versus pollution from our like. Private cars is a big deal. Are Scientists looking into that? Becky like how much industry plays into this. Yeah they are. And it's possible that the overall air chemistry has also changed when we remove cars from the picture which is kind of an intriguing idea like air pollution is kind of a soup of different chemicals and bits and that soup is different now. And there's something even more confusing that happens with that soup that Air Chemistry and this is really strange to stay with me. This is really strange. So say with me as actually sure. We've tagline so go ahead you're at home. Will we mention that stuff coming out of tail? Pipes and other sources is what makes ozone rates that stuff is nitrogen oxide so nitrogen. Oxides helped form ozone. But here's where it gets weird under some conditions you know. In the short term nitrogen oxides can break down ozone molecules
Hacking Our Way to Innovation with Rebecca Love, RN, MSN
"So here. The woman we really love to dig into wine. Nurses decided on that sealed in particular. So what made you want to be nurse so nursing was a second career choice for me? I had gone for Undergrad in a degree in international relations and a minor in Spanish and I thought that I was going to be a lawyer to be honest and I was working on a presidential campaign at the time when healthcare was a big issue. I remember being these rallies and everybody was talking about healthcare and there were no nurses in the audience or a lot of Ernie's or a lot of lobbyists or a whole bunch of people that know nurses and I don't know about you Daniel but my mom's nurse. Do you have any family members who are nurses in your family? My Grandmother was okay and so that was my piddle movement. My mom came out and we went to dinner and she said we really think you should be a nurse and I remember her. It was an interesting time the politics going on and I remember thinking you know what? How can you be a member of? How can you speak to the choir if you're not a member of it and if everybody's talking about healthcare but nobody a nurse here? How do we really know what needs to change? And what the problem. Yeah and that was where my life turns recognizing that to really impact change in healthcare. I probably had join healthcare Do that and that's where my journey began. That's amazing it's topic. I've talked to a couple of friends about we've talked about on here to how there isn't representation in Congress in government of nurses like what we're actually going through what we face on a daily basis. I think that's fascinating at that. Made you change your career path. That's amazing well. It's funny that you say that because the statement that made me change my career path was at my I want you know. I said I wanted to be a lawyer and my mom said to me she said you know there's plenty of strong lawyers out there in the world and she said but I can tell you is being a nurse. There's not enough strong nurses out there. I need more strong nurses on there to change. What nursing looks like to the world and and you to become a nurse and at that time? I didn't know what that meant. I I remember. It felt really importance. But it's now ten fifteen years later that I look back and I recognize those words shaped everything that I've done in nursing every step of the way and I know your own story about how hard times it was for you to be a nurse and how it's challenges we faced how you didn't always feel like you fit in are you also didn't feel like you had a voice and that was hard for me and I'm and how to learn how to navigate. What sometimes feels like a very disempowered profession to become more voicemail and more recognized but more importantly that necessarily placated she but really just given a seat at the table is. Hey you got this. You know what you're talking about and I respect your opinion as much as I respect. Everybody else is around the table. Not so much. Hey I'm just giving it placeholder for a nurse to have at the table. It's really sit there and say we want them here. Because we we get that you guys have value add. That's been really interesting place to come from and I don't know you know in your own personal With your conversation if you guys have felt the same kind of challenges at times yes One hundred percent. And that's something that I think just Added onto years of being like repressed as a nurse that led to ultimately me burning out at the bedside. And that's something that you've been really trying to champion a lot for to in that you know there's this fear like aren't nurses are burning out after two years we're reporting out all these new grads but they're burning out so quickly yeah two hundred fifty thousand nurses. We graduate a year in this country and we lose over fifty percent of them by the bedside within spheres a practice the largest exodus of a profession that nobody talks about and I like you left the bedside as a as an rn. Within two years. I went back to Grad. School became a nurse practitioner for that exact feeling of feeling so like I didn't have that voice and every time I stepped in and I felt like there were so many near misses where I begged you know for changes to happen or orders to be changed or medications to begin our interventions to happen literally knowing that things were going wrong but not having the ability to make those decisions to change. There's outcomes depending on other people to make those decisions and only be given. The toolbox is a nurse to sit there and say well I really think I really believe are really feel that we got to make this big this change or get medication and not giving the tools to actually effectively voice. Why I had the you know the knowledge in the expertise to make those decisions at everything I always did had to be signed off by somebody else because as I was considered for lack of a better world credible enough or had the license or the intelligence to be able to recognize that what we were seeing. Mary made sense it. We should be able to take initiatives to save patient's lives because that was always really hard place for me to citizens to sit there and beg other people and then sometimes it literally and I'm sure you face it if you felt like you were burnt out so often begging to make the changes that we did an often being told. Hey stay in your lane like if you see problems but your job is to be a nurse and to do those things. Your job is not to challenge the way that things are being done and under mentally. That always sat wrong with me Fundamentally because you probably nursing school told hey you're you're the advocate of the patient where you really get on but when we got out in practice man it was tough

Hurricane Season Will Be Above Average, NOAA Warns
"Hurricane season is coming and federal forecasters are predicting that there will be between six and ten hurricanes in the Atlantic this year. That's above average Jerry. Bell is the lead Hurricane Forecaster at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. The Twenty Twenty Atlantic. Hurricane season is expected to be busy one. Npr's Rebecca Hersher reports. If the forecast turns out to be correct. This will be the fifth year in a row with above average hurricane activity in the Atlantic. That's the most consecutive years ever recorded bell says we're expecting yet another above normal season and now is the time to make sure that you're getting prepared. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is asking state and local governments to consider issuing evacuation orders earlier than they would have in the past in order to give people more time to safely leave their homes while maintaining as much social distance as possible. Carlos CASTILLO OF FEMA says Americans in hurricane prone areas should also pack different supplies than they would have be prepared to take cleaning items with you like so panna tiger disinfecting wipes or general household cleaning supplies to disinfect surfaces. You may touch regularly. Fema is also urging people to stay with family or friends or in hotels rather than in shelters if they can forecaster Jerry. Bell says the main reason for the large number of storms in the forecast is phenomenon called the Atlantic multi. Takeo Oscillation basically the wind temperatures in the Atlantic have been really good for making strong hurricanes since about nineteen ninety five that will probably change in the next few years as normal climate fluctuations happen that's separate from manmade climate change but climate change is making the storms that do form more damaging for one thing bell says sea levels are rising sea levels mean more storm on Dacian as a hurricanes approaching and warmer air and water mean that hurricanes are more likely to drop catastrophic amounts of rain. When they make landfall think hurricane harvey in two thousand Seventeen or Hurricane Florence in twenty eighteen and he says rain and storm surge affect more people than they used to our coastlines. Were built up tremendously over the last several decades so that there's potentially many more millions of people in harm's way every time a hurricane threat together normal climate variability plus the effects of human caused climate change plus the pandemic add up to a potentially deadly summer and fall hurricane season officially begins on June first and runs until November first Rebecca Hersher NPR needs.

Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!
"I think. That's one of the kind of joys and the drawbacks of crime is zone and it's one of the things that annoys me when people always read pieces in the newspapers whereas it's someone making sweeping generalizations about crime this crime that and actually crime is a huge on. R- it's as big as you know it's like saying fiction is this like of course then some parts of fiction it is but crime spans the gamut from really intensely literary right through to kind of pure page-turners an really like terrifying stuff. That is way too hot for me. I'm quite a REC- readers. I chose reader. Yeah yeah that makes for better things stops me is that I'm like kind of scattered Dr. I'm an ex Christian but for some reason I still it kind of affects like how much I really believe in ghosts which is more people and let me say that your Senate Sky Dateline kind of chills and speak. He stuff like there's quite a lot of playing about with that in my books but what I really don't. I cannot read books that are kind of sold. Like people locked in basements or sexual torture or particularly stuff happening to kids. That's just like my my line You know no shade on people who write that. It's we need to explore all areas of human experience in fiction. And that's fine but it's not what I want to spend my evenings immersing myself in you know when you're not familiar with the genre as you say. Sometimes the jackets can similar when they kind of wildly different types of six and it is a bit of a learning curve. I think finding out sort of which bit because I I also have had this stuff about crime fiction through the ages where it's like often this get letting the thing that is scary in the book as a society. We're a little bit afraid of and that can make change throughout the decades but then it also means that on a personal level of the stuff that you're like I'm quite interested in exploring fair and then other stuff that is enjoyable to explore the new stuff. That's definitely I mean. The classic thing that is always talked about is the fact that the golden age of crime was in between the wars and Agatha Christie was writing all the way through the Second World War and wrote some of her best names route. Twelve books I think during the second mobile without stopping sometimes two books a year and people who wanted to read about this and even in the midst of kind of death and bereavement and destruction and bombs and huge uncertainty. They wanted crime and it becomes. Yeah they sort of. Are they exploring phase safely They wanted to live in a world where the impossible is solved. May Right and where bodies brought to justice. I don't know if there was easy. Onces like I would publish a thesis on it and become a PhD. If it's the same with you but like I say. I think that there's probably a lot misconceptions around crime and just named one of the crime writers that I know apart from nightmare modern switched our Agatha Christie and then shallow stuff like that's the only kind of two touch points a puffer Moton wrenches. The I know like what do you come up against misconceptions at variety forgot anymore misconceptions That you have but like do you come up against those things in the book and what which ones are true and which ones are like. Not Surgery are accurate. I think one thing I sometimes maybe misconception. On the hair is that they. They're not always believable and things. Sometimes people read to escape. Some people read to understand that life or the situational things going on in the world a little bit more and I think there are a lot. I know that there are a lot like that. I think that's not necessarily something I believe. I think that sometimes a bit of misconception that it sort of by so many things can happen to someone in the morning but life I watched enough kind of true crime dramas tonight actually extraordinary things do happen to people. That's why I might see rates because I've always struggled with that exact question of I don't want to write a procedural. I don't want to write about police officer because I don't inhabit that world and it's not my area of expertise and you do run up against the question of realistically. How many bodies can an ordinary person stumble? We're not Jessica Fletcher. We don't like Pandora in Cabot Cove and have a corpse waiting there every single day. So you know something that crime writers struggle with as well but I do. I firmly believe that it is completely possible. Implausible for one terrible unlikely incident to strike people in a lifetime. I think we've all been the victims of those and we know people who've had terrible extraordinary things happen to them so I don't think in itself that's but yet when it happens again and again and again. This is an interesting one because you can say that any genre like pick Saad poetry. And how sad can Waldman really be like you know like a little life is like? That's brutal like I think. We can fly that to to cry when actually we can say that about a lot of German. You're always going to be talking about the extraordinary end of ordinary. Even when you know even when it's just a regular life you're writing about it. In some kind of heightened artificial way. No one writes about life as it really happens because it would be incredibly tedious and full of sequiturs either. That's not how fiction works. We accept that it's a kind of construct but yes how far you'll cater for peds to to follow that construct but do you so. Do you read climate. All right if you read stuff and enjoyed it or you just never really got to grips with that. As as you know I have and I remember when I was younger. My Dad my dad is a big kind of threat breeze all the big American crime office and I remember the get that again. It's I remember picking up because I was on holiday and I ran. We ran out two books and I picked up a Ro Robert Ludlum book and I absolutely loved and for years it was the Sigma Protocol and it was one of my favorite books because it had this kind of I was so gripped by the narrative but also had this kind of the end of real big moral question kind of about ethics and I just found really fascinating but then I didn't pick up another one. So it's it's. It's a bit strange so I don't really know why because the ones I have read. I have enjoyed that. I think I also haven't I work in publishing and a low of my reading is dictated by what I work on. Haven't actually worked with any modern crime. Rights is so I don't know yeah. It's not that I haven't enjoyed them. I just think it's interesting like what we bookshop. What we go towards. Because it's what we see ourselves. I'm like I didn't really see myself as a crime rate even though I've read crime is that thing of like what settles in your head and doesn't right if you were going to pick up the next crime book. Let's find one for eight. What would you be looking for in a crime free Even the book. Yeah gives you elements and we'll diagnose. Okay will somewhere with a real sense of place that I can kind of stand on this because we're not going anywhere right now that we need some vivid sensitive travel escape my falls something historical but maybe more kind of twentieth century historical and something. I do think that raises questions. It makes you think differently about something so I kind of like moral ambiguity in well. I have three suggestions for you. If people are sort of struggling to find their way into genre I sometimes think it's helpful to have sort of stepping stone books. That kind of are not necessarily crime but crime adjacent and a book which I firmly believe is part of the psychological thriller Genre and I would probably be one of the best but isn't usually shoved as that regard it is that is Rebecca by definitely Maury Which I think has the amazing sense of place that you're after Obviously it also literary classics. So it's just a really good book to have read if what is adjusted in literary fiction because it's the touchstone for a lot of kind of literary fiction as well as a lot of crime fiction Another book which again is kind of Paul of the Classic Crime Cannon and I think has the kind of moral questioning and ambiguity. That may be talking about Would be the time. Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith She is just wonderful writer full stop. She writes very sparsely. She's amazing at creating character. She plunged irritate and it is a crime novel. You're kind of trying to figure out what's happening whether Ripley's GonNa get caught. But she sort of puts you on the opposite side most crime because you're in Ripley skin and you're rooting for him. Even as he's doing terrible terrible things but you also kind of at the same time want justice to catch up with him but in terms of Morton book which I think takes away your boxes including the historical one. I would highly recommend Alabama cheese Series which is set in the Indian raw and has to fantastic Cactus at the center of it. There's some who's an English man who's been kind of Dropped into colonial India in sort of Typically kind of bossing the locals around and then as he's kind of second in command and sidekicks the not who's an Indian And it's just it's brilliantly done and it tackles some really big questions alongside each time. A really cracking mystery in terms of you. WanNa find out whodunit. You WanNa you the detectives to solve it. You want everyone to be bang to rights but he's really grappling with big twentieth century. Questions that estill dogging us today in terms of the fact that we don't have solutions. These are still things the Iraqi going in the news today. I'm they're just cracking a good races

"Welcome to Rebecca sounds. This episode really excites me. Because the guest I have to bring to you shares the same passion that I have. She is so passionate about helping both survivors of trauma and abuse on their Healing Journey. That she exudes with the passion in many areas of what she does. I've got to tell you that. Her work is an outgrowth from recovery recovery of her own childhood. Well incest in addictions and often. We don't like to talk about that but really we need to. Because as many of you know things that happen are often done behind. Closed doors in. We don't WanNa address those things in. That's one of the things that allowed me to start this. This show the radio the TV show the things in domestic violence and trauma. I wanted to ensure that I could help change others in the direction that made their lives better and enrich them and empower them with resources. And that's exactly the things that my guest today also does and is going to bring to you. She has worked in mental health for many many years since the seventies and she has earned her masters in social work from Hunter College in New York later she trained at the Castell Institute and eventually opened her own private practice. I love this. I absolutely love this as a licensed clinical social worker. She combines just a number of different therapies because of the knowledge that she gained an experienced in her own practice she doesn't limit or place limitations on certain modalities that often you see in different practices based on the things that come across out of DSM manuals or other types of things and maybe she'll share a little bit about that with us today but it's all about the client's needs because ultimately they're going to vary and she focuses all on that she believes that while there's many roads that really lead to individuals healing and she works with these individuals on their own as couples and as total family both in recovery from drugs alcohol food co-dependency sex and love addiction as well as people that suffer from post traumatic disorder and well trauma and abuse so not only has she got all of these skills behind her the passion behind her to help change the lives but she's an author of a book called my house of lives and it is a memoir of her own addiction. Recovery in overcoming trialed childhood incest. I want her to share with you today. A little bit about that because there's something special in this journey of her own and in her memoir welcome to the show Lori Golden. Hi Hi. I'm so delighted you're here and that you share the passion with so many people because the things that you do everything from different types of recovery drug and alcohol but codependency and I think co-dependency really carries over to a number of different areas in trauma yet because it just from enabling behaviors to rescuing behaviors and a number of different things. They almost just hand. Yes go hand in hand because they coat cold coincide with all of these things. Yes they really really doing. Oftentimes we only think that codependency is in relationships with other people. But they're also in the codependent relationship with a drug or food or whatever and so we don't really think about this but you have so many years of experience behind you in helping others that you have brought forth your own exposure. You have opened up something that most of us don't share in the journey that we have and that is our own personal experience. We don't share that with many people and you brought out your book my house of lives. Can you tell us a little bit about how you came out? Not only writing your book but presenting this to the world it's been quite a journey Yeah by the way co-dependency for me had been survival because I needed to know what room everyone in my family. My mother was in my father was in. I was tuned in to my external world. Not My internal world. I was in my room in my bedroom. Listening for sounds downstairs so that I could figure out where I needed to be in the house. So it's interesting that you brought up codependency because it really is a core issue. Ms Anyway aside that I I got into narcotics anonymous in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven And I was thirty seven years old and prior to that I would have said I come from a really good family. I grew up in Long Island. I lived in a nice home. I we went skiing every weekend. We went camping. We had a folk. We went boating. Every weekend it was such a nice upbringing in nineteen eighty seven. I reached bottom in using drugs and at that point in my life my main drugs were valium. Okay I was just GonNa ask you your drug of choice. At that point. It was valium throughout the day. And sleeping pills to help me sleep throughout the night trying to that. I had experimented a lot and I had done a lot of different kinds of drugs but the main thing by this point in my evolution is an addict was I was addicted to Bali and I didn't know it. I kept thinking I got it from doctors. doesn't mean. I can't possibly be an addict to me and added to someone who shot intravenously heroin because I grew up in a neighborhood where five of the people in that neighborhood. Were shooting heroin. So I watched the the progression of heroin addiction in these people and I said I'm not anything like that. Well it ends up. I am and I got into narcotics anonymous I moved from New York. I did a geographic and I came out to San Diego and a year later. I hit my bottom. Okay I wanNA point out something that you said just a second ago because someone said to me something out. First thing is oftentimes. People don't realize they have a prescription addiction. Yes they do not want to really go there. Because it's been prescribed. The next thing is someone told me that they were not using drugs like Smoking Hash or something to that effect that that really wasn't a drug Galley. It is depends on it. Depends on how you're using it and so I think oftentimes people perceptual -lize certain types of drugs or a drug addict only when it comes to someone that's injecting and they minimize anything else such as marijuana hash whatever. The case is if. You're only smoking it or minimization when it comes to addiction so I just WanNa throw that in there yes You know it just makes me think about some of the things that I've heard but the point being is we want to bring this to the attention because we want to help others in this and so I go ahead and continue. Laurie but I did want to throw that in there are now. That's an important. Minimization is very big particularly in young adults and in teens. There is a lot of minimizing. Yes yes yes. Yes and there's a lot of overuse of marijuana does a lot of ob use of Hash. There's a lot of overuse. It's the same as anything when you use something regularly. You don't realize that you're ending up coping with all your your shutting yourself off your your shifting one set of feelings for another so best sense okay. Better is something. That is really crucial for us to talk about Laurie. Because I don't think a lot of people really understand when they shift like that in so can you talk about that for a minute because I think this creates further problems? This problem doesn't get resolved. It's shifted now. You have two sets of issues to deal and I will go further to say. I'm also recovering food addicts and I've been in recovery for that thirty years and food did the same exact thing for me shifting my moods into another kind of mood and the reason I'm saying is so if I was lonely I wouldn't be in touch with my loneliness but I would feel uncomfortable and then I would. I just knew I wanted to get rid of what ever it was. That was inside me. I didn't know what it was. I just didn't feel good so feelings to me eight were something that I constantly trying so alter faltering if once I if I'm lonely and I don't know I'm lonely and I go and I smoke weed K. On every time I had that feeling I go and I smoke weed. I never ever bring in my a real sense of careful loneliness because I use the pat to ease the loneliness and this is true for a lot of feelings of frost. The board especially children growing up in dysfunctional families. You've thought I mean. I used food to numb myself sugar. I mean that's where I wanted to go. And that's what I wanted to ask. You is the real culprit with food addiction sugar because of the endorphins. For me it was. Okay I repeat bullet starch. It can go it all kind of metabolize sugar in the body. Anyway I get it I get it now that you say that okay this now I get it I get it. Yeah I just when you said that it just the bells and whistles went off instantaneously when you said starches that okay. That's conversion yet exactly so when you put all of these things really is amazing to think about.

"It's the worlds kind of flip. You're now the one you were. You were telling retailers survive versus them telling you what you need to do to be able to survive. What else can you I assume the part of reason why you're doing this podcast and we'll talk a little bit about. The podcast is so that you can have this connection with your buyers with your consumers outside of the stores. That right is that what started got. You started in this. Yes so I had done. These talks in our stores where I said I WANNA be. Have you come into my store being my world environment? But I'm not selling you something. I want you to walk away with an incredible woman story and her advice and we were doing them once a month and that was great but I was only reaching a New York. You Know Ninety two people fire code and it's not an experience that I feel like is good enough to put on facebook live or instagram live. I mean no one's tuning in for that type of content at a store level so I thought how do I take this bigger? How do I amplify it? And get this out to the tens of thousands of my customers women who just needs out by boost so decided in the summer of eighteen to launch the podcast and didn't know what I was doing and I had a woman at the at my company. Who said we're not helping you? You need to figure this out and I was like what and that was great advice and I had to figure it out on my own and launch it on my own and that gives you a sense of You know after fifteen years of figuring out one thing to switch into an entirely different media format was like exciting to figure out and it's been soul food for me to tell these women's stories and to be inspired and to know that as a founder when you're having the roughest day you can imagine that there's another woman whose had just as rough of a day and here's what she did to get out of it just want to go back to one small point you brought this to someone at your company and they said Rebecca. We are not going to support you on this. Yeah that happened a lot For a good few years did happen. And it's Kinda takes me back to my days with my mom who is tough love of like if you want this great figure it out or if you want to buy this you need to work to make your money. And so when she said that to me. It didn't shock me. I was just like but we have all these. We have people here who can help me. And she was like now. Everyone's at maximum bandwidth go figure out the so funny. How how do you think about the Roi of doing stuff like this or do you think that way do you? I assume that as a founder as someone who is running constantly. You must have to think about how you're spending every minute. Yes what makes this podcast worth your time? I think I didn't start at looking at it from an Roi. I think in the same way that in the early days of instagram. You said this is another way to reach my customer and to impact her. That was my approach with the podcast. And then you get the reviews and you get the emails and you're like Oh my God. I'm I'm helping change people's lives because they're listening to these women's stories and taking great advice or brings them back from the brink or however it affects them and that's an Roi in itself. I'm not looking at it from a point of view of I. Have you know thirty thousand downloads? A week and thirty thousand purchase funnel. Exactly I'm saying I'M GONNA pump out this contact. I'm GonNa give you the soul food and I hope that it works and I know that I'm reaching the same age in Demo as my consumer because I can see those metrics And so maybe when she wants to support a female founder. She'll be like I want Rebecca minkoff but that's not the driving force and I think if it were it would feel a lot more sales. Let's talk a little about female founders. You've got the female founders collective fascinating idea so your ideas basically if you were going to help. Women reject empowerment the place to invest. Not The fortune five hundred and trying to get more women into the C. Suite but to invest in the twelve million small businesses or businesses. The women have started How far along is this collective? And what are you trying to? How will you know whether it's successful or not? So where year and a half in We have over seven thousand members and the seals on over three million products. Which I'm really excited about. Because as a consumer I turn over my products all day long and informs my purchasing decision you know is a non. Gmo ORGANIC So now you can turn over things. Like Birch box or Lola or cosmetics companies and turnover out woman. I'm in right And I think we just announced the project with UBS that gets It's called project entrepreneur and it gets women founders ready to actually take in capital and then know how to deploy it and I think being that the numbers are alarmingly small of women getting funding less than three percent. You know if you can educate the over two hundred women were going to in this cohort. That's two hundred more women who are primed for investment and then they know how to use those funds when they get so. I think I'll know it's working when I see that Eighty cents become eighty two eighty three eighty four but also as we can track these businesses as we get more sophisticated. I'll be able to say to you you know. These seven thousand companies or ten thousand companies have all grown by axe. Because of you know whatever it is we did to help them and you came into this from the fashion side. And what has been your personal story about how you learned how to navigate the business world so I would say that I over indexing in this because I didn't have that education and I didn't have that know how so I relied for the first seven years on my brother to make all business decisions. You're the CEO. You seem to know this all. Focus on design and at one point. He looked at me and I always hate admitting when he's right but he was a you need to evolve. You can't just be the designer in your ivory tower. You have to learn this. This is a language and a way of being so I was like resentfully started diving in and you know getting myself educated and your decisions are just vastly different when you're educated and your knowledge and what you can affect is different so if I can give a woman what I didn't have or didn't take advantage of the she can excel in her business. You know far earlier than that's my goal because I can tell you when I started my business. I'd one bank account. He said you know. Do you have a business bank account and I was like. I don't even have enough money in this one. Why would I make it to you? Know or what did? Llc what's a tax ID. What what should I be an inker? Llc These are all questions that women who have passions when they start their businesses. They don't know the answers to so if I can help affect just a couple of those micro decisions to get someone on their way. It's a lot less painful in the end. Did you ever have imposter syndrome? Was there ever a point where you're like? I don't know whether you removed out at your brother. Help push you out of the ivory tower four. Start picking up things where you might not have been where you might not have had the comfort level to ask the right even know whether these were the right questions. How did you fight through that? It was a lot of pretending I mean in our board meetings I would be looking upwards under the table what does EBA right like and and I think I was like well. They know that I don't know so they'll just ask the questions to my brother And I didn't like feeling that way. I didn't like knowing what they were talking about. The intricate details of a complicated global brand and so five years ago. I was like I gotta learn this stuff. It's my responsibility to be smart as I can and admit when you're wrong I think raising your hand and me like wait. What does this mean. It's okay and so I started doing that all the time. I was like wait. Stop explain this to me and now now I feel like I have a handle on the language and understanding. I'm not perfect. I'm still learning but I'm the first person would be like. How can you explain this and like Layman's terms to me? Do you do anything with your employees to make sure they feel that same comfort level? I tell them all the time if you don't understand what we're talking about. Raise your hand. If you have an idea. Raise your hand. We Really WanNA foster an environment of entrepreneurialism within our staff. So if you have a job like your trusted to do it and expand and grow it as if it was your company. Would you talk alluded about career advice? I'm sure you have people coming to you all the time saying. How do I want to start exactly what you started? I WanNa be where you're sitting one day. What do you tell people? I tell people a couple of things I think in our age of clicking you know you can your uber downstairs. Your Amazon packages arrive. I made a lot of young people who expect that their career. What I've spent fifteen years building is going to happen with the click of a button And I tell them. Put your head down hard. This is your career. It's the only thing I can think of today Were there are no shortcuts? You know there's definitely going to be people that are going to get you further along but this is a five year tenure passion and it might not end with the Unicorn status but you'll have a great business and you'll have a prosperous company and you have employed hundreds of people so that's something to be proud of two so you can't click your way to success and to really rely on your network. I've only here because of the network of women and men that have helped me and who've seen that I was hungry and ready to work hard and said okay you know. Here's this contact. Or here's this opportunity and then doing something with it. Do you think that when you're telling young people this they are embracing that message? Or do they want the click? I think they are like. Oh Man I want the click but probably it's probably more true that I have to actually work hard. And and how do you build that network? I mean it sounds easy but it sounds like it's just one thing. Go and build a network. What does that even mean so I tell the story and a colleague in my office last me all the time but when I used to go out to me I'd get home and count the business cards. I got each night like it was money I was like I met this person and this person this person and I do that today. Obviously I'm not counting business cards but I think it's like who did I meet what's the opportunity. How do I engage in an authentic connection? So it's not just social climbing What can I give to them? You know how is this a two way street and viewing that As an opportunity and I have a friend. She makes lead sheets. You know she actually writes down all Hurley's and what you know what the potentials are and really ticked off a list of like constantly. Sort of making. Sure you're in touch with these people or giving them something before you ever need anything. And I think that's great advice that I just received von Furstenberg Timberg and it was said that every morning she wakes up and sends one email to just help someone to bring people together. That might not have met. That doesn't help her at all just the way that she wants to start every day. It sounds like you've got something similar going on totally. Yeah I mean I get asked all the time. Do you know Can I have on my guess? Great we can all win. It doesn't have to be There's enough for everybody speaking of the Pie. What is your. What's the long term goal here? What is how big of the Pie? Do you want to get? Is this kind of thing where you look around offices and you're like every single woman should be wearing me. Every college graduate needs to get dressed in my clothing. Wh How do you think about the future of your brand? I think of it as all aspects of a woman's lifestyle I know from talking to my consumer. We're really on milestone moments brand. So were there for the girl that just got her as she goes out and buys my bag. She's going to quit her job. She walks in Rebecca. You know she's going on her I I don't know day. She puts on her leather jacket. So these are all these visceral moments that every single time. I meet my customer. I get a story I remember the first time I had my bag. X. Happened and so wherever I can touch you for that whether it's your first home or your you know your skin or your makeup like categories again..

Wrestling was my catharsis. That's brought the book about as a payback for what the men and women in that profession did saving me but when people say well she should do this. She should do that. What do you do if you had children? Where are you going to go? Who's going to take care of you and then that the human trafficking when you get to run away where do the runaways. And then we get into would people tagged as prostitution. It's like okay. We again like it. Was police getting a bad mark in people? Run WITH IT. Prostitution is not what we called it. It was it is human trafficking and most of the time. The women are underage. It's like and who's doing that. People in your neighborhood people in your community learn. Sometimes they'll come from different areas but it's men within our an look man we own it. It Ain't women have they're doing it. You see women that are the human trafficking victims but it's men that are doing the deed and going around and using another human being. You have a really very important point that you're making and we are failing to recognize that in that. Is that right here in our home country. The United States we are seeing human trafficking right under our nose in that recognizing what is and they chose to ignore to Rebecca again men if it was happening demand. I think it would be a different scenario and listen to me. I'm not a female because a lot they'll say elbow it's a friend has though. I'm a man and I seen it and I know what's going on out there and I'll tell you if it was going on two men you'd see this thing cleaned up. If it was gender reversed that it would be a whole different issue. I think you would see a vast improvement now. I hear from some people that say well. It happens demand to is like boys. Yes I understand. It happens. Usually because they're vulnerable and it's usually that rotten uncle. I now understand what it is about an uncle but the case is that came upon my view over the years. It's like how do you tolerate this and there was one that was job related that I knew personally and I'm like this guy. He married into the fat. I'm thinking my mother. I know that what she would have been jail. There's no way it's this guy molested my sister like that that he just becoming for dinner next week wins about. It is like aw we wouldn't talk about. Oh boy I there was done. I can't be in the same room with this guy I just. Can't you know it's it's really interesting because I was having a conversation with someone just recently and we were talking about the high levels of human trafficking rate.

How are they gonna feel about that. <hes> i care a lot about how i'm perceived and you could say and and i care a lot about my relationships and you could say that's like a really great noble thing but it's also really selfish and narcissistic and that like i wanna feel good about myself. I don't have the energy to have have tension in my life. I don't have the energy to light of people i don't. It's just like it's much easier to live that way and <hes> and i work really hard to feel like a good good person at the end of the day. You mentioned looking for advice all the time. What's the worst advice you've received. I guess it's probably higher slow fire fast. Really how do you fire somebody. Oh gosh well not the way i used to. I how did you use to do. How would you fire me if you're firing me right now. If if i walk the room via arrest people question really sucks to be put on the spot with best i i mean in the past it would haul it would've a been like i probably would have waited for them to quit <hes> and it just would have been so uncomfortable you know people self select out <hes> hopefully they do it before becomes uh-huh really uncomfortable. How would i fire you. Homa gosh <hes> will you'd be a huge asset to our team so i probably wouldn't fire you. <hes> i mean today. I'd say like rebecca. We've had a lot of conversations about <hes> your work here and and as we've discussed you know this may not be a fit <hes> you may have benefited point the companies changed and <hes> i don't know i don't know massive buyout <hes> i'm going to sue you just kidding. Oh my god i regret a lot of those decisions <hes> so that's like i've internalized that a lot like i feel like a bad person because of some of the things things that happened that i just that was what i was told to do like sit there and not say like have any humanity and just keep nazi. I'm sorry just super clinical all really brief. Let them like process. It just be like what the traditional h._r. Manager would tell you to do and <hes> that's that's. I don't know it's like putting someone in a lab and it's just weird it's just it's sterile clinical and in human and all the things that you don't want someone's experience on the job to be. I messed up a lot of things doing that. Hiring slow is good but firing in fast probably isn't if you aren't impacting mcchord as i mentioned was on my recent episode of gross radio and it was just like.
