Some really excited to like so. It's not a movie. It's a show is series. Yeah I'm just used to doing everything I I know. You never know what's his by former Dina do not so you know what Regina's superpower is cory to me what I feel like she can just come out of nowhere and blow you you away She could be selling me gum And I would be moved yes right. Yeah Cina King Yeah crushes. I mean she could like you could be like get an elevator. Like what floor. Please you could say four and you could throw her an Oscar or an emmy right like. She's her superpower. Is that anything. She touches on screen. Yeah turns the powerful is say that I mean Greta will have a direct correlation to it. But I'm remembering when she was on. The American crime series was so good and she played sheriff. John Chevy Jackson's because mommy she was married to come when she was married. Two hundred thousand and made it seem like Oh. It's no biggie. I'm just married. I'm telling you a lot of actresses have great superpowers Athletic Gabrielle. Union can look like she's in like college forever. True superpower is that she could be any age downstairs like she can players of then and now I like the You know who also could do that. Regina Hall got. I Know Regina Hall and Regina King. They get a lot of play because a lot of people mix mix up their names but she's another one yes a lot I mean I clearly know both those showing totally funny because they're both connectivity that I'm like I'm trying to think who has what's legal Davis's superpower who girl the the the viola will bring the pain into the performance. Yes you know what I mean like somebody to really act like I mean he clearly where I was winning and fabulous but she will bring that deep hurt yes My superpower is like extreme in motion and like anti like onscreen. Just make you feel angry like mad in a good way. Yeah you know wanting about route now who I'm thinking about Gabriel. Dennis going forward money. She's funny but there was one of her skin. Black Lady Sketch show where she played like a slick. She was a serial killer or that was so good but it just makes me think like I think she could like I literally come into Your House be nice kill you and then walk away. I don't necessarily know if that's a super power. She just got it like manipulating manipulating changing. onscreen yeah being in disguise like just flipping it. I'm smiling because black ladies guess show is over but the those certain segments stick with me just other day for no reason I was I was in my room and I was like black lady courtroom black. May I don't know that it's all black it.

So here's a little background on February twenty first two thousand nineteen. She was a presenter at the essence. Black Women in Hollywood awards. I saw her backstage just before she stepped to the podium and I think it's fair to say that she was taken aback by the way the ballroom at the Beverly Wilshire. Hotel erupted. Did the love was real. Here's a snippet from her introduction. She's an actress producer and director. She's also at Twenty fifteen essence black women in Hollywood honoree a Golden Globe and three time emmy winner as well as a newly minted academy the award nominee again. That was on February twenty first three days later she won that Academy Award for best supporting owning actress and again we all cheered for our so. Yes I'm thrilled to be sitting with her today and she is a regina can when you are to the third Powell. Who's this talk by saying because I tell you when you and I share a first name? Aim Right Regina Renee. Her last name was Roberson affectionately calling her for years. Our third I love and you there were many Regina's I remember a period where I was. I think I think it was a high school. My friend's father used to call me Regina Belle and now it's like this like the year the time of the religion and so it's a wonderful thing that's funny because I feel like the same unlike growing up never met any other Regina's and I guess I didn't embrace how unique unique that was. There were a lot of middle name as everyone. Angela Renee Gene Air. I was the only regime. But you know latrice Rene Karen a a lot and it wasn't until you know the WHO. We Love Regina Belle. Yes Virginia I won't be called Regina. Regina Belle king was it happens with Hall. Oh My Regina Hall Yeah. It's the year the Regina when I grew up in Queens it was Puerto Rican girl around the corner name. Regina she was flies. WHO Like Lisa Lisa? And she was like so Vlad I was like Oh when I get older like Regina Regina it's fly so and then there's like Wendy Raquel Robertson. Who Was Regina on this? Arbizu Arbizu Ingo Regina Jurors people laugh about that super. Funny that one because mm-hmm for the longest time if I'd go to getty images like look at my pictures Regina there's a singer Regina She does theme Song Oranges New Black. She we know we have to look it up. I'm currently we'll come back to that okay. and pictures. It would Gina. George Rachel McAdams would pop up on my thing and I've just this out that that was interesting. I'm looking at but we had to keep going. Regina Spector Regina structure. Remember that aspect. Hey Regina spiked it shout out so today we're here for your December cover story your fourth essence cover this. This is the third time I've seen you in the third cities as I saw you in Atlanta and New York. Press Dunkin for watchmen. We're GONNA talk about this. Is Your Third Solo cover your fourth essence coverage as you did like a twentieth anniversary with a bunch of the ladies back in the day. Remember that all the different college I did. But so then there's more because did essence cover with Jamie Foxx in Carrie Washington us for rain. This year I'm wrong. Oh my God this is your fifth as your thought about that right now because when you were doing I was thinking about about the Jamie carry one and then white then when you said the one with the clean is Michael Michelle Shell. Yes telly bearing. Yeah I was like. Oh my God. The raiders. mind yet. That one was actually have that photo frame nine. Oh my God I have out one of the outtakes from that a photo shoot Jada 's Jason Senate who had just recently became Jada Pinkett Smith? I think it was only a couple of years or in and It's a photo with the cameras up above in. We're all looking up into the camera and it's that one of my favorite photos that have been my office. Yeah Yeah so along with your cover is now you are Angela. Abrar Weisman and your looming all over the city every city in this poster. I think I'm going to dress up as you. I may be the way I would love that. I told Damon would be Damon. Lindelof creator of watchmen series. I said if I just see one photo of someone dressed up as we won. You know 'cause we literally premier like eleven days before Halloween and so that posters everywhere. It's like so tell me about Angela. Abor our house. She came to be. Oh my Gosh If anyone anyone is familiar with Damon trajectory the comic book series. The graphic novel watchmen became part of his DNA. He ready it for the first time in his teens. And it truly Just inform the writer. He would be if you are a fan of loss if if you are a fan of leftovers then you know you see you have read. You've watched how he that that influenced his style all of rioting and he Turned down doing this series twice before where we are now. Because he's like there's there's no you can't you can't remake perfection A. Why would I do that this disrespectful then a finally on the third ask ask He said what if the credits are going up. On the watchmen series and my name is not up. How am I going to feel about that? And that was one of the Things pushed him towards doing it and then he said well give me pause to let me find what what it is and he found what it was by going back to the graphic novel You'd viewed red tunnel icy coats case for reparations. That had something to do with trying to fine. What is that looming thing of today? That the Cold War the threat of the Cold War played in watchmen the comic book series. So that's how we got here. And then how I became involved is as he was building it figuring Out with that story was he created it The story being centered around a black woman. He has this rule rule to never cast a person that he's worked with before and then another project Belong Sir Short. He broke that rule because because he felt that I was the right person to embody Angela a bar and he sent me the in Aden sent me. He had the script delivered for the pilot because it was such top secret and he wrote this lovely note saying this. Was this thing an minute. I didn't know about this. He doesn't cast someone in the next thing. Rule average decide He has me at. Hello the factor because my experience with him on leftovers leftovers was incredible and So yeah I I knew I was GONNA say yeah pretty much before I even read it because I just know I know the writer that he is and I know the show runner that he is and I know the collaborator. That he is a new that I would be allowed to take ownership and and that's something that I look to for years now. I have experience with John. Ridley you know with John. Wells and Bittermann Christopher. Christopher Chu Lock on South Plan you know so Once you started out having that experience on Southland that kind it led me to a space of knowing that if I don't feel like the processes collaborative then I don't WanNa be a part of it you now So who is Angela era. Angela uh I really feel like she's kind of a a representation of All of us in all of us. I don't mean just all black people I mean all people I don't mean just all women are truly mean all people because once you you tune in to just even the first episode in you'll see along the way and it will also be indicative in other characters as as well. She wears a lot of masks. You know we see in the trailers commercials this sister night so we know that that that is one of her masks. The obvious mask but when we meet her we think we're meeting Angela. A Bar and then little few minutes later we we meet the other man ask Am I. Guess I'd say that the that got a woman we meet our little deeper into the show. That's probably the closest to the essence of Angela's because she's most comfortable dribble most In her natural skin with her family with her man. We're going to talk about So we're talking about here right now. That's a nice little Yahya Abdul Mateen sack ars leg. This is me. Yeah doing amazing amazing. He's in amazing women. Being he's the best work has been you know Someone can have the best Partner is is an artist to Build in a scene with into Not over talk assine but Get get into the nuanced moments In a scene Dive into the odd little things and said I think the audience sees but it's not in the dialogue in that comes from chemistry of actors. Obviously it starts with the writing and directing but the chemistry between the actors and the respect for the art form If it's mutual with the actors in with the I committees that and I didn't even realize he headlines Right before looking at it like oh he said did he just flow spray. Tina's husband gear liked it. Yeah so you never wanted to call she. which isn't new for? Are you here. But it's interesting. That whole being of number one kosh she'd and people have that talk talk about that so much and I guess I just. I'm old school. And kinda come from a space of There are no small parts arts. They're just small actors. That was something that was said to me. Early early early. Mateen's you know maybe even pre teens means and that stuck with me so Something that my acting coach back then bridges. WHO's top bridges? Meyer Oh yeah yeah in. She said that early on just that never left me so when I hear that understand that people are saying that out out of respect in in in and they feel pride in that in that position but I'd say that did I don't give anymore than I gave. When I'm any other number on the call sheet well? That was the first prime I sense. Sounds because not only are you the number one number one percent of the cost that you are one of three Oscar winners on this show keep that which is fears ears fierce so and I think what makes it even more fears is it's one of three Oscar Winners winners that you still know all of our names you now off. Sometimes you like oh well. Who is that person? They want an Oscar in nineteen such such can you just. You don't remember their name but there are people they may not have even seen a Jeremy Irons or Lou gossett junior movie. But you say those named when you light all heard that name before so I don't know why that makes it more significant for me for some reason because it says something about these actors in their careers in how they've navigated them. That Dave remain relevant. You know you to it including myself so correct me if I'm wrong. I think you said that. When when you won the Oscar you were going back to Atlanta? To work on watchmen right one and then yeah so we were all screaming screaming of course but what did you feel the second before you one in the second after you heard your name. Do you remember. Well I won't say the second seconds before I I remember even watch the Oscars before an Kudos to the team. The men and women in stand beside me. They never reminded me that best supporting actress. Whose first up and so I just you know? We're having a good time. You know arrive here. Settled in the seat and white dress and theater ask you know and you know in my an amy. Tina came out and they said that the I was at how is happening. Now it's happening okay. It's happening what's couldn't be a face with the and I just remember looking over my mom. And she is the epitome of grace and just knew that the right face was GONNA be exhibited regardless of the outcome. You know mhm in the how comes what we wanted but Yeah I mean I think the the the the gift of having something that you were already working on in already passionate about to go into made sure I didn't get caught hot up in the the stuff that can become negative. You don't get caught up in all about you of it. All because at the end of the day there was a bigger thing is far as when it comes to The work of it all the career of it all the art of it all that that was happening right now. You know I still need to go. LERMA I'm so grateful for that. I'm so grateful for that. Because is I'm working on the next thing right now gangster. Yeah you know like so. I'll presume thank you. God Well I. I think I've told you this story. Before I'm naturally it was the day after the Oscars or sometimes you know a couple days later I go to starbucks get my caffeinated drugs and you know how you you go to starbucks and you don't want to assume everyone you know I can't remember any was nameless. Have a name tag also like everyone assume that you like. It's Regina so I go into one of the one of the regulars and at order my Green Tea Frappuccino and I said Oh Regina Oh you spell it like Regina King right you know so you just want to Oscar right. I was like yeah I do. Yes is Spelt Regina these other last week but yes just like Regina King and she had to be like I don't even know she was twenty five. So you know Regina King like you all know nothing about seven some like it has to be boondocks. So what I love about your career. What I think is just amazing about your career is that there are people that know you from Friday there are people that know you from two to seven. There are people that know you from any of the state in enemy of the state taught me. That can never embezzle money. Because the way they track people's money they highway eighteen from anything better. Just don't start ally because you can never finish them. It is mostly the tracking my bank. So thank you for that lesson Jerry Maguire I mean the list I love the year of the dog. That was yeah. That was fun but by the way that twenty five year old for her it probably wasn't boondocks probably Cinderella story or legally blonde two you or miss congeniality to that age group. I get those three movies all when I tell you it just seemed like a kind of maybe like four five years ago. I don't know Cinderella Story. Some cable network had bought bought the rights and it was on a loop or something but I'm sometimes I'm bad at remembering the names of characters that have played and then all of a sudden like five or six years ago. I kept getting Rhonda Are you Rhonda. So the first few times I was I was yeah. I thought they were like mistaken. Me For for another. You know actors or something but she was like from Cinderella Story and then I kept getting it so Yeah how did you ever think that it would be this way like. That's pretty amazing. Just the hit so many generations for so many people have different feelings about you ver. I can't say that I thought that it wouldn't be even. I can't say that a thought that it would I would say that I have just I try to listen to the voice inside and luckily at a very early age I was able to understand understand that when things don't feel quite right. That's probably not the role for you. You know even though. I'm still still auditioning but I'd gone in on a couple of auditions and this is when you somewhere. This is probably after two two seven so so somewhere between two seven. No no I take the Probably between Maybe between poetic justice assists in higher learning and Gone in on a few auditions for things. That didn't quite feel right for me but I wanted to work. One wanted a job and didn't get them and was just frustrated about the preparation that I you know gone through who didn't book it but then cut to a realized that this is actually a blessing. And you shouldn't shouldn't be putting work into something you don't want that's that's Kinda like ignorant in a way that's like crazy thinking and so stop a stop going on any auditions unless that role spoke to me because in that way if I did put in the work and I didn't get it the disappointment wouldn't be as big you know and Qatar has stopped having a lot of disappointments honey. What's what's speaks to? Oh Gosh I think it changes As I as I grow We definitely changes as acro the but but for the most I would say the one thing that remains consistent would be a role that is not just the role. The entire story should be intriguing to me of course the role that I'm playing should be something grabs grabs me but I want the entire because if the entire pieces good for shored That role is GONNA stand out if just the role is good But the film television show our though. Whatever it is at this point web series is just so so doesn't matter are you know how good or how great Lee written that one role was Can we go back to the wars for second. Wait what are you sitting on. I'm sipping on a bit of Roseanne. Oh your posts photo. Shoot Roseanne today. What is your? What is your choice? Oy Tequila Zoo. Qasim migos then. Julio Nineteen Forty two Reserve along the Ah declare for Cook I like to all of these are Tequila is I mean. I'm I'm the only people who drink with that last one I named whatever de la Familia Oj. Cuervo not to be mistaken with Jose. Cuervo that you see up in the bars and stuff but the result of de la Familia de might there. That's for grown folks so I want to go back to the award for one second Because it was a time when you weren't winning awards and it was like this is wack but okay but I know that you know we're not here forwards. We're here for work right. Where are where is your Oscar? Where are your three emmys? Where's it going? Where's your essence? Black Women in Hollywood award the first I big award that one The Emmy is with my mom so she thought nice and Cute Cozine Z.. Cincinnati But there is you know kind of so many but I have I have all my image awards. Yes essence Black Women Award the variety to a beautiful awards it's at a Received a long time ago is back when they would do the I think they've got the Black Oscars or something like that. But it's a beautiful piece of just art. The in in an I got one for Jerry. Maguire and one for May Have Been Ray I. I don't remember what the other ones for but they're beautiful so I am I Office Library SP- doubles levels I have all my books that I face and then behind me I have photos of my family of my friends. Friends of dismounted life so we just kinda mix all of the awards up with the photos. So there's not really a rhyme or reason to how they are they're just more where they are because it looks good on that shelf with these photos and looks good. I'm Michelle this show with those photos. That's fair I always wonder. What do you picture war? Yeah we do. Have a question about your Tequila. I never have a problem talking about until like Kua tastings just because I like to learn more about the Garvey. They plan what I think people want to know and I want an answer you can. Were you really drunk on that. What happens live watch what happens live? Were you actually great actress above. Who wants to act drunk? Not for a check. Yes always wonder I was like this I was not familiar with this show. Okay so there's no judgment raises a question and and I think probably part of the moment was that I read the I just the timing of things. Maybe I just missed. Watch what happens live so I've been drinking since you know. Arise with some girlfriends prior to so by the time we got there. It was on a house like two sheets to win. But you know I think I think when I look back on it and just the joy it seemed to have given so many very very moment I think about because I I was like mortified. We that it happen and then the next day I had pressed to the next morning with my publicist. It's like eight in the morning and this is when I found out I was not on twitter yet but I found out what trending wet and Whatever word show? We were promoting main southland so the TNT publicist. Who's like Oh my God you're trendy and obvious take is that good and then she said why and I was like okay I still Annan in in in Mike? You told means my publicist with that night. He was at that time. That was like ten. Stop Thinking Me Jack. Gay has a ball and I was like did I messed. It ended indigestion. You're fine but it ended just in time. It was legendary what what ended up happening for me instead of like going to the place of embarrassment. It'd probably was like a a learning moment for. Yeah that how many people saw Asami as an uptight person Saami is a person that didn't let our hair down saw me as a person that's doesn't joke. I am of Boo. You know like Apparently only those close to me so I thought that was a good thing. It created a space. Why didn't do do anything that would be detrimental to my family or career? But it did allow the audience to know she cool. Yeah so let you know I. Thanks Andy IRA in down in my notes. I just thought I'd be sitting here sipping your way. Play the entire answer the back and forth. Yes that's why that's why not no judgment. Wow this is real. I do drink so yeah yeah so it's a girl in. I can only like. Yeah you you doc.

I didn't believe I saw your party like she says you're GonNa do it and she did it. Yeah gangster so so tell me about when you came to that and why you wanted to direct you know Acting for so many years in working with so many any different directors. There's two parts of an answer that too that sometimes you don't realize how something is making an impact impact on you with specially when you're young until later on and then you go back in connected to that I did not realize is As I was working in certain directors were at one time Older when I'm older working twenties in working and My experience with John Singleton Cameron Crowe and Tony Scott Not really like Kinda left a a mark on me in just the different styles of directing and the things that I appreciated about about all of them really I feel like I was paying attention to it. The with with the with them. But at that point I still wasn't necessarily sing or claiming that director is part of who I am but when I'm asked that question now actually really Inspiration goes back to two two seven and Garin key. He was our director or that directed most of the Episodes throughout the years that we were onto two seven and he was able to access. Remember Knbr when we had guest directors. I just want Garin back and some of that had to do with comfort but a lot of it had to do with his style and part of his style was he was clear he directed or gave saved direction. I use this word all the time but with grace you know with respect And I did not realize that was making an impact on me as it was making an impact so cut to Southland and having the the opportunity to start to say that out loud that I want a direct act Gave me the opportunity to shadow him on the show and then Paris Barclay. I'm trying to remember who it was. That led me to pairs by someone's when I started saying it out loud and I directed a video jar. Heen yeah and they told me reach out to pairs so reached out the pears said you know I wanNA correct and he was like okay. Are you serious. Because a lot of actors say they want to and they don't really fully want they want they want to try it but they they don't know until they've tried it. I knew that I wanted to. I knew that it wasn't going to be something that was going to be a one time time if things go wrong. I'M NOT GONNA continue to make this reality. And so he the went to his house. You have to tell our audience who the legend Appenzell Mama. God Peres. Barkley is legendary He is a director that has trail. Blazers has has created a space for not just black people but the LGBTQ community He is just one of the first to It makes such a strong mark in a television And so for those of US black white whatever Look Paris as WHO. You aspire to be like it just the way he moved that if you could only A. B. As giving as him as he is an always has been and he was also the president of the DGA which which is huge in itself you know and went to his house and he played the giant video with no? Oh value would you. What would it be directed so I pulled up the link forum and he played it with no volume and he said Okay A. C.? which did you told a story I I know with? His story is and Did he gave me like a questionnaire to fill out with like random questions like if it was a party would you want to be the host or the guest in you know Based on those answers Kinda let him know the seriousness of Me Wanting to take this has died and then he turned me onto regina render who worked at the. Dj Black Woman is well who gave me all of these different programs terms that I could apply for because he said if you want people to think that this is a van anything. Because you're an actor you need to let people see the Jew do the work you will take the actor of it off and you'll show up and learn and humble yourself and so I applied for or the ABC diversity directing program and Little more to the here we are. That's that's incredible. I'm telling you what I saw those credits roll and I was like she such is GonNa do it she did it with with keeps you you're from La Simon Bray so where were you. Where did you grow Area called Windsor Hill. Yeah so what's it like to be in it because you know not every I'm not from here. I'm Queens all lanes in Brooklyn. Yeah is very few of us that are born in bread here. You have Tim Story Director You know I Q. You're yes OS obvious ones. But what's it like to be a native in navigate this town I think we're always We always I find We get to your front. You grew grew up here. You're born near. You just don't seem like everyone else and I find that the everyone else that they're talking about are the ones that transplants. Yeah And I just there's just You know yeah I'll own up to it's some of those things come with them the city of La But we still feel like there's no better better place to be. You can't beat the weather. You can't be just that California laid back vibe that we we have you know just like people say you talk slow you drag things out of draw like a southern thing. But I I love my city city you still. Ripe at the Lakers cut me in bleak a- and yeah I don't know the name on the front not the name on the back of New Jersey. Yes that's what I was trying to say. Look really legit. Levin it Lakers you know even even before magic so who your inspiration. What were your little girl? Dreams were who who decides your fabulous mother who were you who did you look up to. Who Your inspirations And it's wait. The second part of that question is how do you feel about being an inspiration Komo. Let's see let me answer the first you know as far as actors you know that had inspirations all the way from Rosalind cash to sally field you know when you're an artist you it really don't look at things Through I think true artist don't look at things through color sex you just what what inspires you know what I mean and I know you know this is a writer you know some people the way they were put together it does not matter sadder who wrote it now. Obviously there's moments when something hits you that way and it happens to be someone that's from the same I ask for. It does have a deeper facts but I've always been a fan. Dan of all parts of the performing arts are the kit that CECILY Tyson. You know on meaning until I'm now I'm Maiming Actors Tres in in entertainers but I'm you. Toni Morrison our books. Were always in my home. You know And I remember my mother. You know I started before we read Tony. The couple. Toni Morrison books she would Talk about how she'd have to read needed again. You know they're they're it's not an easy read but it's such a gratifying. It's you get so much and not until I read a book. Did I WANNA for books. That understand what. She Man Alice Walker Male Street mild gives it was was was huge for me. My aunt my aunt Juanita my mother my grandmother. You know the women around me. I'm Chris Leslie Asli Lisa Lesley mom we you know we we. We grew up To get our mothers our best friends so just strong strong women. I'd I'd I definitely come from a long line of strong women. You know. Play cousins and real because it's not to minimize everything to Your Oscar night because your career so vast but did you feel all that love from everywhere in the all absolutely was filling in before that. Yeah the you know the the road to. Yeah no I mean when Joel embiid jumped. Don't over my head at the Knicks gauge. You know the I think I got more joy looking at people's responses like don't don't you take. This queens leans night away and it just felt the love like just I love like twitter. Say allowed they wanna Wanna hear one more time blacks. Sometimes you guys can be a little more positive with something but do yea it is. Sometimes you do speak the trump's yes and sometimes is just the best lab and in for and I think the reason why say black twitter is because it feels like when you are at home for Thanksgiving you know when you you see the cousins or the uncle that you only see once a year and y'all sit around and talk you mass star Dr recapping on the year's events it's real it's real it's real into real so you know so tell me about being inspiration. Ensued the next generation of artists honestly. I think it's just that in itself is inspiring. You know that would be the most a simple way to put it knowing that you've actually you're you are actually inspiring or that you have inspired inspires you to you. WanNa continue on a path that continues to do that what's your greatest lesson personally or professionally. Good lesson I nothing really good lesson something that you may say right now. In this moment about the thing you may not feel that way about it. Five years from now ten minutes for now and and the doesn't mean that you were not honest in that moment. You're in that moment but sometimes you get some new information. Sometimes you have some new experiences experiences So don't ever if if you're being honest in the moment you never never have to feel especially back to the whole twitter of it all you know someone always wants to like she said you know they do it with Donald Trump that half full all the time you know. Who's to say that? In that moment he was giving away. Whatever you know I ah I? Don't try to understand that person's crazy clay dad do perhaps he really did feel way. He felt in a moment even though it is insane so insane in is such a lie later so it feels. Maybe he really did believe in that moment. So that's the class I guess with that it's put me in a place in life. I think especially in the past ten years or so that judged less yeah you know who you know having that when someone pointed that out because it was it was something like I'd said something in an interview in these years later in the pointed out that that had said that before and I don't even remember what it was but I felt differently about and oh you know started kind of going inside and thinking trying to figure out why I said that. And they were like you felt that you meant that in a moment you so many things happened since since then and I was like. Yeah you right so I tried to apply that win even when it's something as in Razi whereas you know L. Dude Dude. You're allowed me to to not have as much judgment commit when it just comes to people if that makes that makes you. You said a black girls rock that this is your season for grace. I favor elaborate a little bit on that and what does success mean to deny king That song by William Murphy. One my girlfriend's Jackie reached out to me and said this song every time I hear it makes me think of you in this was after at gotten the Oscar nomination and I had never heard the psalm says it was before the Golden Globes and had the nomination and in had not heard the song in I When on spotify and pulled folded up and I was like I just all made sense and it just she said it makes me think of you? Every time I hear the song and after planting my seeds and I've been soiling in fertilizing them in surrounding myself with the right people that make sure that that's happening and now it's blooming and I'm grateful for it And I know that when it as far as favor. That's not everyone story you know to have the The blessing to recognize that when someone else's story is not as is bright on the outside as what mine looks like right now in this moment. That's a lesson for me to to grateful for what I have to know that I could have easily been the example to get to let others know that okay. You need to count your blessings and make sure you're moving right because this can happen do you do or this can be taken away from you and also the blessing of when you have someone in front of you seems like everything is going so perfect in their life and then you sit down and have a conversation with them and find out all the stuff is really going on and we all have that we have all had some. I'M SMILIN' I'm swamped back to the masks that we were talking about in the beginning. But you've got uh so much and I've been through that and I've had the SMILIN' smiling and I'm crying on the inside and but it was all part of the journey. All it needed to happen could be here in this moment. Receiving the grace perceiving even the favor if those moments that the tears the recognition of others tears in pain you weren't part of the fertilizing of the seed. I hope that made sense but it made so much since it does a future hall that your last question. What's what are you looking forward to? What's coming next what you tell us about because I know everything so secretive? I'm as a woman as everything. Gina King is everything. Yeah you now I'm still I'm I'm I'm a mother. I'll always be a mother. How does that is twenty three? So you know just watching him find his way and clutching per rose knowing that there's moments when I'm going to have to let him fall and also having moments where have allowed him to do any watched him get up in dust off his knees in move on is such. It's been such a beautiful reminder minder that Yeah God's got him in East finding his way. Sam Feel really good about that right now. I'm in prep while my the film debut and it's a piece that is truly special actress. Piece this is caught one night in Miami. That's the title right now it's A play adaptation from the person that wrote the screenplay also wrote the play empowers. Okay and it's truly in my opinion. You know everything goes well. You'll probably hear me say this a thousand times next year while we Promote the film yet that it's a love letter to the Black Man's man's experience in America. Beautiful Yeah I think they need that.

Welcome Regina Thank you for having Me Regina I have to ask where. I'm from New Hampshire. Where are you calling in from? I'm in California totally different world. My son is flying back there today. So because people don't know who you are. I'd like to get a little bit of your background before we get into our interview. Regina Venus has worked with over one hundred businesses over the past seventeen years helping them scale correctly and in many cases reorganize Regina's function is to work very closely with the CEO and teach them how to run and grow their company correctly improving their cash flow and position for long term success and profitability. Welcome Again Regina. Our topic today is a seven question interview entitled fail-proof Your Business in any industry. Regina are you ready absolutely? Let's do this question number. One Regina who's your ideal client my ideal client is anybody who is having a really really bad cashless struggles. They're looking to reorganize because they're kind of at the end of the game and if they don't do something drastic now they're going to either have to shutdown or file bankruptcy which have also done a lot of my clients so and also people that are looking to scale correctly. That just don't know what to do and most business owners need that guidance. Absolutely so I think he just started to answer question number two. What is the problem that you're trying to solve these business? Owners positioned corrected their marketplace systems. Structure cashflow the bottom line is the goal is to position them for long term success profitability. Beautiful my third question it has to do with the symptoms. What do you see? Are the typical symptoms. That business owners are experiencing or the wants it. They're talking about. There's a few negative cash flow is always an issue. In most businesses receivables are not collected on time that's creates a negative issue bad terms with customers vendors lock of knowledge how to make a profitable decisions. A lot of business owners are fantastic at what they do producing a product or service but don't necessarily have the skill in the know how to actually operate and grow a business lack of systems lack of infrastructure. Wrong people in the business the list goes on and on and on but all of that impacts the bottom line at the end of the day. Absolutely it's not just about working in your business was working on your business to make it that much. More sustainable and scalable absolutely so based on that situation for our listeners was one valuable free action that you can recommend that they take this going to actually help them increase the value of their business. Unsleeping take responsibility that you're the CEO that you're the leader. A lot of people are struggling and usually business owners are the biggest bottleneck in their own business. They don't take responsibility as the leader as the need to make hard decisions. It's okay not to be the Nice Guy Sometimes but you are responsible for the company and the people who come to work for you every day. That say trust you to make good decisions so that I can work so I can get paid for my family's okay. So the big thing is. You're the leader. Take responsibility number to make sure you have the right people supporting your mission and your vision because that can be a massive catastrophe referring business. I don't care how good you are. If you don't have the right people walking alongside you. Everybody's running different directions. People have to line up and they have to follow the leader and your your vision. Because that's why they're there right very well said. Thank you regina my six question builds on that. What's valuable free resource? That you have that you could offer to our audience that is going to again. Help them with solving this kind of problem. Oh absolutely on my website. Regina GELINAS DOT COM. I have A. it's completely free. There's no charge rates elite magnates and e Book that I've written Phil Proof Your Business in any industry and it talks about critical things you must know apply and be aware of in your company in order to be successful and I think it's like three hundred fifty pages so it's massive massive amounts of information for free. You can actually apply now in your company invaluable. Thank you very much for that and my last question. Regina is what would be one question. I didn't ask you but I really should have. What is that question? And what would be your answer. One of the biggest things that I've seen companies that are found themselves in financial distress in chapter eleven bankruptcy cases of helped about sixty five to seventy companies through chapter eleven. And it's all the same. They were trying to grow too fast and they did not know how self fund the company growth in all of them got into massive debt. Massive problems so if you're looking to grow your company please try and sell funded. There are ways. There are a lot of ways to self undergrowth of your company that keeps you save. They keeps you in the black and they keeps you out of financial chaos so they some of the things that you offer your clients is help helping them explore opportunities within their companies yourself. Funding one hundred percents so when? I work with my clients. The bottom line is. I run with them from start to finish so I talked to my clients every single day with every single problem every single contract whatever needs to whatever decisions needs to happen because my goal of the end of the day helping the business grown reorganized and be safe is my number two priority. My number one priority is to teach the CEO to make better and profitable decisions. Because if I can't do that there are going to continue to go down the rabbit hole so I've talked to my clients every single day multiple times a day and I guide them and I teach them why. This is the decision. Why we're going to sell how we're GONNA do this. How would take these contracts? How refused the contracts how we talk to employees? It's everything all encompassing.

We got you a massage at how important Vaca- about over a black dude. Let get your garden. Dance Back Rub. The back was some cotton so we'll see what we were talking about like some of the small things that we as men can do to show the women in our lives that we hear here the fact that we did research over Jana we knew the things she loves while we could actually just got food and it would have been all right correct. Wait a a minute wait a minute. I don't like food that much where I mean I liked but it doesn't replace everything almost I. I've never see you passed start. Civilians would've meal Ridge does. Did you notice how Regina eight before the last episode. and Ah Yeah but you related to what are you talking about. We grow and like like you little when we knew it was that great. She couldn't tell us some things that has and can do. ooh that can make stuff a little bit better like some of the things that we don't think about inner labial. ooh ooh chilling. I think I'm GonNa Lounge Dan in the lounge chair coming most of the time. You Always WanNa do the big things and it's the little small things that we enjoy chilling at the house I thank you for putting this Wasser grass cut for you appreciate that when you put that. That gas in the car lost I. M Y bought the Nice car but how about just wash the car yourself. Tanis Kiewit Ola. Woah wines got it got the turtle that black maxine waters something the child to thank. You WanNa sit you know. Never thank you know what I was telling somebody I got chef chef to come through and turn turn every every room in my house into something different for her so like about a Komo. No Oh very nice room massage therapists. And then she went in every room. It was something different experience that was the experience and then when she got the last room but when he was ready though she got through it all shooting eh she did. I woke us up. Wow the point was it was. It was just the effort. And I'm GonNa tell you actually it's funny. I learned that from a girl that had done that for me like when I was still living in Jackson. We didn't have much money. We was broke but she she knew go cars. She knew I like it. I don't know if they don't do this at Ruby Tuesday's got so cheap jarman when they had them tall glass chocolate cake at Ruby. Tuesday is. It's like well started as you said. Go see the manager and tell me Your name aggregate you another a back then that went from there to To the go cart places there was a scavenger hiding and then at the end of the day they gave me a key to a room. INITI- was up there and it was just really. I just thought it was dope because it probably caused at the end of the day maybe three hundred and fifty. We didn't have read but you really really put a price on like it. Didn't cost them. That's the point. That's what I'm saying. I have to say it. It's just important and so I decided that I would do that and My cousin had a very traumatic life. She was a female and it it changed her. I think forever but she plans to music the background by Komo. No No. That's right here. We got a camera to Regina getting out of you know we could see her slow to. Why is the camera the camera you're still at work? I was thinking kicking in or something corey partner. Jana how does it feel. It feels awesome. Timmy woody doing massaging my back. Okay shoulder blade. The driver I the play by play. I'm getting right now. I'm trying to focus. Okay own blades. The blades I'm concentrating on not having to see. Bdo Choi would would tell us. Tell us I'm not a man has done for. You never really asked that question like you tell us what you liked. What has a man done right there? I'm trying to think out here. I'm a the X.. My keys a Clinton's higher place at didn't have to do any dishes to wash. Clothes Bay was made UNMADE. When I got home I I love little stuff like that? We had a little picnic. Anna Living Room was nice. I know we talked about child but I had a I had a friend girl. That that She she made motivational messages. And she put him in aglow. Small is like there was disassembled and she put him in peels and she said every day. I want you to get a shot of motivation. And you take these pills out and there was a motivational. The thing every day everything that she thought was special about me and it was like seven hundred so it took all that time to spend to write all of those little bitty small messages and put him in Peel really gave a fuck about that. I did damn takes a lot of effort about. I wish they want to do something like you have to appreciate. Moss of a woman does and like what she did for him. Um You don't appreciate it but if she took the time out to do it then you should be appreciative. Dot enough to do about Who took right now? Yeah so if you're a pussy with all my gosh you know some fresh drip assault someone to catch another a young ladies on those. Were the gifts that never really appreciate the most. Get US attract attention from other women right that we try corey last week. But you'll see if this is the back of our corey lives this thing this hour's medic move this doesn't I have to be for your girl can be for your mother can be for your okay girl. I just tell us something. I'll tell you. This is about Regina I'll tell you what some different my mom so for her birthday actually last year like my parents live in the Virgin Islands now and she was she was kind of sad. That like the black now so she was kind of sad that all of us our kids. We're just living our lives and not not really coming home because you know grew up in the bay but I don't really go down to the islands like that and so I bought a ticket. didn't tell her a ticket to come down there for her birthday late last year and she was Kinda down just pissed off. My Dad was catching the runoff. Because he was there and he was honest and I showed up and she just just broke down crying. Anyone knows my mom's a very strong woman like to see you. Cry was just like Whoa wait. She Caribbean Caribbean. Now she you see southern vanish from way she got that Jitsu coast. Would you get that first black here right right right right right right right. It's funny Home for Christmas like my mom knows that all celebrate Christmas and all that kind of stuff so I haven't been home last couple Christmases because I I personally took pagan holidays. And that's no shot at anybody else but I think one of the things that happens that black people don't know. Is that if something is pagan. And you are reacting the same way that pagans are on the same exact day. been you offer filtering rituals whether you mean it or not so usually when I when I don't believe in something I try to do the exact opposite of what everybody do. So everybody's eating affairs. If everybody getting together I don't WanNa be around around y'all because as much as people talk about their Christian Muslim and they're all these types of things well if you participate in and I give you the history. He like on Valentine's Day and the fact that you know say Valentine's cut out the heart of somebody and gave it to his daughter 'cause they was having sex and can you still want to participate on that exact day even if you take it and put it on the day after or the day before but then I realized that you know that was something that meant something something to my mom and I told my mom I was gonna come home for Christmas and then I was doing too much. I was tired. It started raining and I told my mom I was like mom. I'm I'M NOT GONNA be able to come home for Christmas. And she said it was about to start crying so I got up at four thirty. I'm good little. I cannot the massage yesterday retain mackerel. We're here doing this. I cannot how you doing right now. Finish telling your story. Uh Hey Regina. I read that from that window. A half day over gene can smacked on unhooked that read. That goes without saying audio. Got Four o'clock in the morning draw to Mississippi Six hours to when my mom stay spit six hours in droves. Six hours back Just because I wanted to show the effort I probably shouldn't have. But you know sometimes you have to put aside things that you believe as long as you strong and we're your convictions are and just meet people halfway you know and that was the whole purpose of this. Show me where they at. Yeah you know. I Know Regina She does more to meet us. Where we she comes? Over to the dark side and We appreciate it. We wanted to love on her Scott. Yes Sir What do you think we could do? Better for significant others. Listen to them. Are the best thing one one of the biggest things that people don't do lesson even irregular conversation when someone's talking to people nine times out of ten in that list and they're trying to formulate a response right what if you could just sit back and shut the fuck up and listen a lot of times answers kind of present themselves so I think in twenty twenty year more listening shut the fuck up for real and Pitcher fondue praise the Lord. How many times the wait a minute really? The horse dance the race race race. Brace praise more it can care. I am so what's happening now. Regina give us give us our part of the legs. I can can actual question technically if we were in the house. Where would you begin your massage? Would it be on a terrorist because kitchen the air fried pork chop and I cannot chicken. Put that Chris Cornell Marquette team. Oh what do you think stops us from being more loving towards each other because it seems like a lot of times in our community not just you know as it pertains to women men but men and men. It's almost like we feel like we don't deserve to be loved action. self-protection really explain. You'RE GONNA avoid getting hurt so not to hurt you set yourself apart and create a wall from the beginning and so when you create that level of distance from the beginning then the expectation is always gonNa we all right. Because I'm not GonNa let anybody pass this barrier that I've created from the beginning they don't know anything other than this if I give them a little more. We doing good but it's supposed to be just the opposite. Sit Regina we make you happy. I am so happy that we think about you all the time. Yup We appreciate you and guess. What's a little brother was very very Sally knowing I saw those gummy bears he did. You know you'd be bashing hotel. No I'm not like you not like me a also we went on our everybody on retreat.

Regina pt. 2 (episode #30)

"Dave Dave Dave Dave Dave Dave Dave Dave Dave David Ban. I think so. Let me ask actually. I'll question again appreciation as a mother. That you you you would like the Mojo. How do be modified children? I have one son. He's eleven emery okay emory. Emory's not quite old enough yet. Is He so appreciation is most definitely. Is I think so too. That boy is observant. Very young he was able to tell things to my husband that he's like mommy likes candles. Mommy likes music. Like what kind of music he not an immune with again a football. But this little. Oh boy sitting next to me is listening. I hope yet coupling so what Scott said you could teacher. And if they're not taught early man horrendous adults non appreciative and one of the worst Renzo bills. Get this little fuck under control before he managed to get. I don't shave here in. Yes sometime without backlash we ask something by here. No back talk about your grandmother's smile on your face. Yeah we appreciate that and we appreciate that for men as well. Yes I had a couple and they were just having some problems blessed. Try this to the husband I said you all have for five days straight. I want you to say would you like the question would be would you like to. His wife is supposed to say whatever it is in your response. Every single time is going to be absolutely yes okay do. It was the first question so I had a couple that have been struggling relationship ship and they bit a couple had been struggling relationship. Just argue just not seeing eye to have complete different things that they enjoy doing and so one of the things I said to the husband who came in by himself. Okay I want you to play this game. Your wife is going to be said. The statement is you're gonNA say would you like to. Yes and the answer cancer. Whatever she says it is your response? Every time is going to be absolutely yes. Yes but guess what would she gets response. Not Yeah because that's typically what I would do for the man when we talk about women have to do the same thing. Women usually do that. Why changed around this time? I created that game for the man because he says I created this for a couple of who has intimacy issues and say she a little stuffy. offi she don't WanNa try new things so I said okay all week. We'll say would you like to end with every says you say absolutely yes and you engage flexibility. We'll we're hoping it would be being intact the conflict that they have been having to was would you like to. Do you know something. Like she's a little more refined she was like. Would you like to go to play. He's absolutely you want to sit outside and have a glass absolutely where it before. I don't want to take along you too slow now. She said the fact that he said. Yes what s dumb. I'm tired I'm sleepy. I don't want to I gotta go to work. It changed the whole attitude it. It was just that they both agreed to do that for one week. Straight or watching the punisher yes. I Regina Regina Do you think the way we treat you or the weight at the people who are around you now has it. I would always tell me about. Ah Your outlook on how men were initially do. Does it got better or has it gotten better. It definitely has cookie. Explain I thank you guys have shown me And and told me how I mean you make me feel appreciate it and I feel protected. I feel safe. I love it really really now but example of some of the things that makes you feel that way okay like today. We're we're shooting show getting ready to episode. I'm dressed put my hat on and here you go all the shows for you. They gave me gifts massage. You didn't even notice and I had not a clue what's so crazy because it was going to be a little bit bigger than this put in. You know what happened happened. So I didn't Wanna mix that was sorta hard but we had already paid for some of it and I couldn't interracial so no but but for real though we we men lead sometimes sit back and just listen to podcast and we liked hale is hard and a lot of people think that we're going hard over Gina with now not just us but people do know how much we love and how much we protect. People have never thought we would be disrespectful. But you gotTa Think Regina didn't want to do a podcast. Regina hates life. She don't like cameras. What because asked her and I told her that I wanted her to do this? She did this for us and I just wanted to honor her. We wanted to honor her. She's always there all of a sudden. She babysat lead. Like a Boeing. Though he's so spoiled you know of course. No no I return it though you know what I'm saying like I just do it and I just walked around Willy Nilly like she whatever they need I got it I do a show baby me. I the best perks of beauty. Corey is there and OUT THINK AIn't nobody in the world. Is this kind of two other. Oh my Gosh told me here about say terrorist. The GENA Lee. Tell me them all then over here he messing up your what Kazan. Tommy you are really macklin no UTA. Well Technically Regina you have two men in arose you by yourself. I never shot okay. But when she was getting that back Lewis Black timing we need. ID's found take him he did it. The Astor Cameras Camera. I'm not zero Jana if finish telling us like I heard you say on on one of the podcast by just you know. Some of the things that you've experienced various lately has changed your whole outlook on men and I just wanted to know how how that affects you moving forward. I'M NOT GONNA say I had a terrible on man but I think that you guys showing be things that I hadn't seen before Now I know what it to look for and to expect and what to accept and what not to extend. This actually made me sad. Regina was like I don't let her touch doors at all doors and trash like I just I just a Mississippi me like I hope people take this the wrong way like I don't how big a woman should touch nothing outside but I don't think a man should have to touch anything inside. I guess is how I feel. I don't believe was touched. Doors touched trash really like. That's almost a phobia ma. I don't WanNa see that nothing to get your hands dirty. You know I'll do that aspect of but the crazy thing about me. That frustrates so woman. Minnesota Cook better than they do like cookie like warm to cook. I'll go in there so much on purpose. It'd be like Hey Yeah good how awesome five by describing your throat win the medicine. The sore throat razor is a good start the court of course disconnect the mark I I just go ahead so is it okay if women want to take care of her man. I've seen said nine. Nobody's okay I am just tell me or anybody touching my feet. Like that's how I hate that I don't like strangers touching me to place as a surprise in La and it was like nighttime. Asian places this is down in the basement when I walked down and it was dark. Some not standard. I had to leave. I got trust issues. I can't be on out have been with that. I don't like I you get massages. I have to go to a chiropractor. Just somebody Stranger Rubino me not like that. I can't even relax so I told him that yesterday. She yeah I got She got the massage so she gets some big butch white girl to do and I'm like no we don't want to let him girls be off. When I went in there should be that PERP? She was dirty. I would advise against that. And we know you'd probably want demanded to your massage but you want a woman. Oh Yeah of course. So so. How'd you get past that Scott? She paid for something. She was excited about it. You don't know. What time does she had? She had not paging Scott. You mean taken away from her motivation or dual etel strangers. I'm serious I did not fully constrain. Olot we didn't really talk while it was like this person or we was cool with contrast they home. Scott I'm GonNa tell you this is is funded happened now Questions is that okay for someone to do special some for you. You can someone other than your so she pays for you to go somewhere for someone to actually grab day. LA I I always told her like I'd never always in. La That's an La. I'd never had so they should. I was telling her on issues from choose from Oakland I. She's she's different type like like my friends from the best so she she a real you would so I was telling her I had never got like a stretch. Okay the lexical female so she knew that I had certain fetish right which is all that one. Oh no there's another one so she She she take out she. She says she knew. Her homeboy used to go get the happy ending massages so she took me. She took me to the spot to me a happy ending massage. So you'd like Sucky sucky right so potato how they said that I was police dome. 'cause I kept. I just kept doing this. I'll let you fuck out on the sides. I they would let me know like it all depends on like my level of trust you know because like Dayton is one thing but if we friends that's a whole `nother level so I like it was hard for me to get into manicures there's and pedicures and stuff because I'm from Mississippi. We wouldn't talk that because scam we bite on nails to Santa Scott says cutting Abed Abed last week off their work. GotTa Save Regina Down Flip it it it depends on the level like she was the one told me she was like man. Like if you're gonNA take this acne stuff to the next level man like you know women look at your nails people look at grooming grooming and trying to be on the end of the League and then what happened with me he is. I started. I became a little bit addicted to it. Especially when they doing like the pedicures because it's like three people working on you at the same time and because it's so personal and close people have to pay attention that most human beings don't pay to each other anymore so actually primates pulled a lice off each of them. Yeah well I eat a little name on top of each other. You liked it. What was the other question for me? Remember what was the other question I had now. Doc Sally what what you think you can come over and I love to build this thing again. Ladies they were doing for you on some surprise you a lot of stuff or give us one one me.

It wouldn't hurt Regina you want to ask us a question. Why the moment? But you're still working. I don't get it fucked up Just just come up with one question. Jada so flexible black female Hesse talking earlier about when you guys were asking him why he didn't join us is it. Goes back to what he was saying about. One of the most important things to do was listed exactly listening. She would have known that he didn't want to be anybody who knows me knows. I don't like fucking strangers. So that's a horrible gift from me. Girlfriend says she was your girlfriend. Aspirations trying to force me to things that she liked but she knew she new all everything. I'm saying she knows this about was he tried to make me go anyway. I'm not that type. Is it okay if your significant other wants to try and take you out to a comfort zone and there's no safety issues in expose you to something more absolutely but when I've expressed to used like if I don't like liver. Oh maybe if a person fucking onions in still living without try overhead that before you know what I'm saying but if I'm telling you this is like I'm allergic allergic Kale. She gave me some potatoes some Kale chips one night. Okay now wait a minute. This is the same person twenty minutes later. She's like I don't the third one. I told you Alto tradition almost killed me before you know so. She was just a person that tried to would her agenda. But if you and it's not like it's just a surprise out of the blue. She knows that I despise people I don't know and so oh she wanted to try to make that not the case. She said it was a decision that I made the decision. I don't like it sound more like an insult for you. I was pissed. Do you off pretty much. And I didn't feel safe in the basement of the Chinese book. Some some happened to me similar to that in Somebody almost hurt really bad luck. I know some certain Ciccio like yeah so I wouldn't do it and and people people don't people don't understand it's not gonNA explain everything sometimes. It's things that's happening your life and I tell people all the time I don't like to be played with because I grew up in a very harsh harsh environment and we didn't play like that so I take things a little bit more serious than everybody else does. And so this management team. I had one time I. Yeah that was that was a day and I and I told them it was funny because I was in full. Tears got told. y'All motherfuckers not to play with me and this is what you see what happens. And then they then they want to act like they're the victim's mother fucker rapping. I'm not what you and now that I think about it now. I probably could have been in jail for that easily wherever easily but I would. That's something that I would die for. Don't don't play me like do do your job. Don't you know we were talking about That showed that What's the show that was to show they do do do?

What have we ran in your house? Put a pistol in your mouth as I just joking. We're just joking. They don't they. Don't play with people like this. I hope it just took a bad turf for the zero moment. But let me ask you a question. Detroit what is what is something that she would like Men and knowing the reason why ask is I had a cousin. She went through some really bad things with men so she decided she was going to take a cousin which was me it was going to show me the things that men never. You know me and never gave herbal what she wanted. What's what's the tip that you would give to me and WHO's like I? I haven't had many experiences in making other people happy. What are some of the tips that you can give to those young men and making whether it's their mother sister just just someone who's significant to them? That's that that that's a woman will suggests that he would get to.

Oh stop you help me with. This guy's helped me with this guy so this is a problem that I have so I figured out that like most women want you to figure it out. I don't think it's fair and I think it takes too much time.

Ep. 2: Regina George from 'Mean Girls'

"Hey, hi. It's me shea. I wanted to jump in real quick before the podcast get started. Because I wanted to tell you something this episode was actually the first episode of the series that we recorded that being the case I knew going in. I was going to have a billion things running through my head while were doing it. That's why I wanted to have a mandate. Juliet the guests on it. They've done so many podcasts together, and they're both smart and funny and inciteful. So I figured if I got stuck on something or if I stumbled I'd just lean on one of them to save whatever segment and was that we were in and it mostly worked just not entirely. There were still a couple of March Ryan messed up, and normally what we do in these situations is I just go back and record those parts. But I didn't wanna do that here though, I wanted to keep the mess ups in because as I mentioned it was the first episode, and I guess I just like the ceremony of the process. So the way we're handling it is whenever I'm about to screw something up or after I've screwed something up. I'm going to jump back in the pod. Like, I'm doing right now. You'll know it's happening because you're going to hear this music playing in the background. On like footnotes for the episode. When you hear that noise. It means where breaking away from the conversation that I'm having with Julieta demand. So that I can talk directly to you about something. Anyway, that's what's going up. It's going to happen. If you times during the episode, and I wanted to give you a heads up beforehand. I let's get started. This is villains. Each episode. I'll be joined by two guests. Take a look at a different type Avila. We're going to gangster movie villain a horror movie villain an animated movie villain today. We're doing a highschool movie villain nee we're doing the high school movie villain, which means we're talking about an evil takes a human form. Enrich, George because she may seem like your typical selfish backstabbing slight faced whole bag. But in reality, she is so much more. She's the Queen bee star those were just little workers. Regina, george. No, even begin to explain Regina, George Regina, George is flawless. She's too many persons and silver, Lexus, your hair's insured for ten thousand dollars. I hear she does car commercials being Japan. Her favorite movie is varsity blue one time, she met John stamos on a plane, and he told her she was pretty from time. She punched me in the face. It was awesome. Regina, George GM. Joy mean girls around that. Julia Limon, that's Amanda Dobbins. They never stop trying to make fetch happen. Let's go. Let's start with a plot of the movie first mingles came out in two thousand and four is written by Tina Fey directed by. Mark waters. Stars lindsay. Lohan is Katie is sixteen year old girl who makes it all the way to junior high school before she actually steps foot inside of a school in America. And when she finally does it's to attend Northshore high school a perfectly pleasant academic institution. Save for one thing it's lorded over by group of girls than the plastics that three members of the plastics. There's did see but extremely lovable. Karen Smith and Karen is were either place that she's third-ranking member in the group. She exists almost above the fray, she doesn't really question anything or internalize anything. She's just they're lip gloss and drug Antic set of eyeballs, the complementary piece really just happy with her station seconds Gretchen, wieners, toaster. Strudel heiress and second in command. And of the three Gretchen is. I don't think volatile is the right word emotionally fragile is what she is. She's on a high wire rope for the entirety of the movie because she understands the social implications of what would happen if she were kicked out of the plastics. I could say she's the smartest as she the smartest of the three. I don't think we can say that we can't either. I think that she's the most voted to the cause. Oh that she she's the Joan of arc of. If she were the smartest. She would be the leader. I feel like I agree on this. Okay. Good three of them to one saying, I hope we can continue to parse this. Okay. We're gonna we're gonna get all the way into it. But so Gretchen her and Karen if they were left to their own devices, they would be just like normal sweet humans. They're fine. They're not anything. You don't think so Gretchen is not nice Gretchen is extremely nice. No, she's not she is neurotic. And she is the most obsessed with the structure and the rules of anyone in the group, including the number one leader who I won't. I'm not going to spoil the reveal here. That's fair to say. Yeah. All right left to their own devices. They are sweet nice humans. It's just that they serve an unholy Lord. And that unholy Lord, Regina, George leader, the plastics in an icon in north shore high school, she's beautiful enrich, but also philosophically ugly and morally bankrupt, she is at once revered, and reviled and absolute and unquestioned legend. But also, the darkest most amoral kind of evil everything about her and her life looks perfect and seems perfect. But our insides are rotten they've decayed by the time. We meet her all that. She cares about is protecting the crown which she does by sledge hammering anyone who she thinks is at threat in the face. Two things one. I have no idea why paused so long right there when I said the in the face part, listen, I'm going to. I'm gonna play it again. So that you can hear just that one piece. It's it's the dumbest thing all that. She cares about is protecting crown which she does by sledgehammer and anyone who she thinks is at threat in the face. I don't know what I was thinking when it did perhaps at the time. I thought it was going to sound cool or dramatic. If I stretched it out like that. But it does not sound like one of those things. Just sounds stupid. That's my bad. That's my bad number two. That's the end of the segment there. But it should not have been the end of the segment what I was supposed to have done. I was supposed to have gone over the entire plot of Mingroa. I didn't I got to Regina. And then I got starstruck and everything just sort of fell apart after that. So very quickly the rest of the plot of mingles. Katya tins Northshore high school as we mentioned she infiltrates the plastics in because part of their crew. And I she's supposed to get in there and help Janice figure out a way to destroy them. Janice, by the way is a former friend of her genus. They were friends in middle school Regina ended up ruining her life. So Genesis hated them everson's, then she meets Katie, she talks Katie into joining the group. To rip them apart from the insights and Katie after she meets Regina in Gretchen. And Karen, she's I can what they seem. Okay. To me. I don't think I feel comfortable doing this. I don't wanna do this anymore. Separate of that, though, Regina has found out that Katy has a crush on Aaron who is regina's ex-boyfriend Regina gets back with her and just to fuck with Katie and Katie seizes she gives very manage decide. You know what Janice? You're right there horrible. I'm going to help destroy them. What ends up happening though is after she's all the way in that group. She realizes that. She's drawn to the social power that comes along with being a part of that. So she's still working to dethrone, Regina. But when she does she inverted only takes over as the new Regina because she's picked up all of her traits. And eventually everything gets worked out by the end of the movie Regina stars playing across and becomes like a decent human. Katie goes back to her original group of friends. Karen becomes a weather person. Renton joints, this new group of cool kids, but that's the plot of mingles right back to the podcast. I. We'll get into Katie. We'll get in Virginia, George before we do that the four things I found out while I was either research for this or watching the movie, and I'm going to tell them to you. And you tell me if you knew these already. Okay. Number one mingles is rated PG. But originally was rated r. Meters is not rated PG Mingas is rated PG thirteen. You'll hear me correct myself in a moment. But right here I screwed up, although I would very quickly like to point out. There are a bunch of movies that received PG ratings that should not ever see PG ratings, for example, jaws which came out in the nineteen seventy five jaws has a PG rating, and there's a scene in it where a kid fucking eaten alive by short. He's just out in the water kicking around on his little float. And then a shark bites him in half in front of his mother his mom's on the beach running around street, and she can't find her child. She can't find him because he's dead because shark just fucking ate him alive. And that movie has the same rating as kung FU panda, and I know they didn't come up with the PG thirteen raining until nineteen eighty four. But still if you're choosing between PG and are the first step on the movie ratings flow chart. Should be like is there a scene in this movie? Where child gets eaten alive by a shark. And if it's yes, you should go to our rating. Anyway, what I'm saying? Maybe just wasn't my fault that I messed up here. Let's get back to the podcast. I'm shocked by the PG rating. Yes, they had two lines that they had to change in there to get it to be PG thirteen doing what those two lines are. Now, the first one is win. Katie is in the cafeteria. And Jason the worst person in the movie. Yes, Jason comes up in the asks for ever Muffin butter originally. That was is your cherry pop, Shan that makes that scene way grosser. Yeah. Definitely. It's like much more as much more aggressive. I. Change the second one is go real quick thing in the burn book when they say girl had made out with a hotdog hung, and that is a much more like lurid thing that I don't want what she did hotdog because different stories their internet. Neither one of them are pleasant. Okay. Okay. That makes sense as I was watching the movie discussing my friend. What is this movie rate it, and I was like, it's probably are. And I'm shocked to find those PG thirteen I was to second thing. Yes. Rachel mcadams plays. Amy Poehler plays her mother and Lindsay Lohan plays. Katie Regina, George and Katie are both in eleventh grade, they're supposed to be the same age, but Regina Georgia's actually closer in age in real life to Amy Poehler than she was to Lindsay Lohan. This was my first exposure to Rachel mcadams as I think it was for many. I remember being shocked that I think they filmed it, and she was like twenty five, and I think by the time it came out, she was twenty seven, and I was just like that's at the time that seems so old to me. And I was like I can't believe she's playing a teenager high school student. How wild could you tell that? She was older. I had no idea. Yes. Of course. Ages just number no shots. But it is very clear that she is not a teenage. And that she is also I think really got him just clearly older than Lindsay Lohan. I didn't even think about it. Like, yeah. Like what I was watching it like the way they look in the movie like you can just kinda tell even consider though I was like shocked. I was like oh my God. Let me away. I couldn't tell a third thing. And I miss this. The first few times, I saw mean girls mostly because I wouldn't I never like said down and turned on being grows. It was always like Mingroa, Don, let me watch it. So I never caught the beginning. But it starts out. There's a scene where Katie is walking to the school. And then she almost gets hit by the bus. And this turns out it's foreshadowing for in Regina gets hit by the bus later on like she's turning into her. She turned into or whatever. Yeah. And then it ends with another another. We need a fucking sign out there or something like maybe sixty this is a school zone. Yeah. I I caught that. Why is the bus going that fast understand? This one I was really excited when I figured this part out and the first cafeteria scene, and this is super nerdy. Nerdy thing I'm gonna say for this that and the cafeteria in the first time when Katie meets the plastics, Regina, Karen and Gretchen are all eating the same thing. And they're all drinking the same thing. That's a salary chance with the Perrier with the white straw. And she sits down, and they have their their that great seen the second time. We see them. This is after Katie is in the plastics, and they sit down to eat, Regina Gretchen and carrying are still eating the same thing. But now, Karen and Gretchen are drinking diet coke, which is what Katie is drinking. The last time we see them, Katie Gretchen and Karen are all eating the same thing and drinking the same thing. But Regina, Georgia's that the personnel there. Interesting just changes, and that's right before that famous. You can't say with us seen like that's when that happens. Talked to you is butter a card. Yes. Gina you're wearing sweatpants. It's. It's. So so that's the rules, and you can't fit this. Whatever are real. A real that day work best because that was sculpting. You can't sit. That was really sad. Yeah. We got there. I guess. Yeah. That was sad. She says, no one some pants fit. I'm wearing basketball shorts right now because my other stores don't fit. So it was like see relate sympathetic. Yes. To that. Lizard, the categories. This is the most obvious category. But also, the most complicated one. And the question is simply just why why is Regina George scary? She's five foot four she's maybe one hundred twenty pounds. She's an autocrat. She just runs everything. Why is she intimidated? Timeout. This was not supposed to be a category. You hear me say that word category twice here. Every episode of villains has six conversation categories that we get through. And we actually do all six of them later on here. It's just this wasn't supposed to be one of them. I wasn't supposed to use the word category. Here. I was just supposed to ask Juliet in. Amanda, why Regina Georgia scary, which I did. And which they answered but I should not have called it a category and all early hit. You would not have noticed that. This was a mistake. Had I not pointed out right now. But I pointed it out right now. Anyway, we need to hear their answers. So let's get back to the podcast. I think because she's a good manipulator. She understands. How to manipulate her crew kind of until she does but she plays with their emotions. And she knows like the key moments that will get people riled up. So, you know, the like and the and the imposing of conformity, very powerful, many, great dictators. I think I think that the emphasis on all doing the same thing like how she derives her power. Yeah. I mean, the easy answer here is that she's a psychopath like she's actually the clinical definition of psychopaths, and that she doesn't care how people feel, but I don't think that's interesting. I hate it. When movie villains don't have to answer for their crimes soon. My actual answer. I think which add said is right. She's a really good manipulator. She's also. She's this sounds like a women's lib answer, I'm really sorry. But she's really. Confident. She is really really sure of herself and her station and her control over people in a movie that is full of people who are like not confident and things go really wrong when everyone else gives into their energy tomes demons and insecurities and everyone's feeding on each other. But she can just rise above because she is very very sure of herself. Also until the end does it to your point. She's the only one who like in a high school relationship or has some kind of facility with boys. I think that's also really powerful and high school like that's like something other people aspire to it's like, it just it means had a lot of currency right in high school. We have listed on the, you know, these are the things we have to take away from our stripper for power. That was one of the things. Do you have a memory like the first time, you watched Mingroa something attached to this feeling of her meanness of her meanness or just a movie and? General. I think that the moment that's the most poignant for me is when Katie realizes that when Virginia I complimented her bracelet, actually, mocking her. She realizes that like movie time like thirty minutes later. I think that's that's a really mean. Girl thing to do but unbeknownst to Katie she's like making fun of her basically in front of a group of other people who also notes bad bracelet that I seen two minutes long. When when Katie and Regina are talking. But yeah, I think we they show all of the parts of Regina like how how much more clever. She is how much smarter she is than everybody else when she's doing all of these things. She makes sure to protect Katie from Jason to like, you're automatically indebted to me. Now have a seat. We're gonna talk and she's figuring out is this girl going to be a threat to me because she looks at her. And she's oh, you're you know, this is an attractive young lady. Could she possibly challenge for the throne? Let me size for real quick. She's very sweet tour. She gives her that. Why don't I know you the nicest thing that happens in the movie, and then the other things that happen when Gretchen tries to jump in and talk, she's shuts down immediately. She sets a trap for Katie with the. You're very pretty like, you know, you're pretty right? So you've actually never been to school. Shot. And saying, hey, ho schools. That's really interesting. Thanks, really, pretty thank you. So you agree. You think you're really pretty, oh, I don't know when I watch it. Now, I think there's no person in my life that she reminds me of I didn't experience that person in high school. It was not at that level. Oh, you got one. Well, I was just gonna I was gonna say the reverse, which is my memory of this. I was I think early in college when this came out, and I don't have a specific memory, the burn book stays with me because it was right around the time when you know, when you went to college when there were still paper, and they gave you the freshman like Facebook. Yeah. Before there was literal Facebook, and I guess this was literal Facebook, and everyone was judged by their pictures, and I remember kind of looking at the burn book and thinking, oh, God people probably did this. But what I was gonna say is that it came out. Right. When I was far enough away from high school to actually start understanding, the dynamics of high school and being like, oh, so that was the mean girl in my high school and these people. Did this and these people did this and I feel like I knew a ton of them. I went to a really big high school. So it was a little bit different. Like the social hierarchies when you have six hundred kids in your class a little bit different. But there was a group of of girls who name themselves as squad day squad. They call themselves the squad and then other people call them the ace squad. What is a stand for like top level? Like the letter eighteen versus BT and Mike way squad. I was not was this was this a party crew per se were party crew because we had that at our school too. And I remember there was a group of guys that were calling themselves the Wolfpack. Oh my God. And amazing. These guys are the worst guy high school. So. God what a treacherous time a squad squad. It was tough. I didn't see this until this is maybe like a few years ago. Handful years ago was the first time I watched it. This is one of the movies is just on TNT or race or something. One afternoon I was flipping through. I saw it was the the scene when they're at the mall, and they do the at the water fountain. When they all turn into animals, and I was like what is going on the Missy Elliott music use intermittently, also so good. The shelf slept on. Hey, what's up? She really is love love messy love that musical two thousand four what a time very two thousand four. Let's get an next category. This is called a worse behavior. We're gonna figure out what the most villainous thing that Regina George does in the movie and got five five options for you feel free to write one. And if you want number one, she's sneak attacks Katie with Gretchen on three way, this is after Katya so Gretchen that she has a crush on there and Samuel's to that whole thing, then Gretchen swear, she's not going to tell anybody then she tells Regina and she sets everyone number two she stops Gretchen from Saint fetch. You love him any totally compliment you that is so. Gretchen stop trying to make fetch happen. It's not going to happen. This one hurt my feelings a little bit. I really liked Gretchen. I wanted rich in the do. Well, that's interesting. I wanna talk more about that this. Plus, the she didn't let her wear hoop earrings like shoot mean to graduate. That's for sure. Belly fat Shlein? It's like conic Gretchen trying to make fetch happen. It's just so good. I would argue it was worth it for the line. Okay. I'm progression. So I'm gonna say it's not worth it. Number three, the third option when she pretends to be Planned Parenthood when she calls Taylor. Tom. Yeah. That was really mean. That's that's a really evil on. Hello. Detailer del. She's not home yet. This calling. This is Susan from Planned Parenthood protest yourself. You can have her give me a call as soon as she can. It's thank you. She's going with anyone. Regina has several instances in this movie when she stands up for her team. And this is this is one of them there. I mentioned this talking with my wife, Laramie about this movie. I asked her to watch it. So we could talk about this. And when the movie was over she said that this same thing happened to her not that somebody called her house. She said, she Regina George herself because she was nineteen she had gone to Planned Parenthood. She got a receipt for a test and birth control pills. And she had it in her closet and found. Yeah. Yeah. No. It was the she bet that's a common tale across America. I I would hope not but. Well, you know, being a young woman taking your medical care into your own hands. I think that's a lot of people. Yeah. That part. Okay. Number four. She made Gretchen change places in the dance right before they go out on state. Yeah. The reason she tells you we're going trade places. She says it will katie's katie's taller to in the middle. But you knew that she was taller ahead of time. You should have told her. Okay. Right. Like this to me when I'm watching the scene today reminds me of whiplash when Fletcher at the very end he goes up any changes the song with Andrew and he's like good fucking luck. And then he just embarrasses like this was the first version of that. I just ripped that off. I think you're roaming gross only person outside of Damian Chazelle that refers to those characters by their names and not by the actress who play them. That's amazing. I just love thing is this the I mean girls whiplash. Critical theory together. It's great. It's definitely tales of obsession. And then the obvious one is she makes it look like Katie was the one who was responsible for the Bern book. Right. Yeah. Which of these is the most villainous for you. Juliet. Oh, you wanna go first? I just wanted to add a right? You got one. It's like a jesting it. All right. But releasing the burn book just the act of throwing pages? Burn book public. Okay. I'm calling all of that is the same count the same thing. The affair of the burn book. I think of those the Planned Parenthood one is objectively the cruelest, but the most repercussion I would say emotionally as putting myself in Katie herons, shoes or really anyone shoes? Her parading Samuels around and like making out with him in front of Katie as much as possible. Probably would have hurt me the most student that would that would have been really upsetting. That's what that's what set everything off for Katie. Because prior to that moment, she was like, I don't know if I wanna do this anymore and then. And then she saw them kiss. I really think the only defensible thing, and this whole movie that Regina George does is be upset that someone trying to date her ex boyfriend for sure own so as she has. I mean, it would hurt Katie. I think Juliet's making your good point that that would be very hurtful. But also, this is the only thing that she has any sort of reasonable. I don't wanna say claim share, and I don't want to invoke girl code because you know, you gotta work. There's no code work things out amongst yourselves, but I understand having an emotional attachment to your expert high school or overboard. Yeah. Let me throw a theory out at you. And let me see how you feel about this. You tell me if this is wrong or right? When the first time Katie goes to regina's house, and they walk in. And Karen finds the burn book. Oh my God. I remember this. Looked at that in forever him taking out K, burn book girls pictures from the yearbook, and comet trank pack is rescue little Fiat filter. Don Sweitzer, he's fat. I still have to. Amber to less you. She made out a hot dog. Janice. Ian dyk? That kick Damian. He's almost two gator function. That's funny. Put that in there. Maybe those only okay when Janice said it does. She know. Right. There is she collecting leverage is she setting up Katie for the eventual. Is she plotting this head of time. I think it's more how she takes credit for everything she wants all the winds for herself. And so she's like, oh, that's funny. I'm an incorporated into like, my Regina, George doctrine, or like, my my persona. So I think it's I think it's more her like kind of accumulating knowledge and data for lack of a better word be like, the herb mean girl. I just thought it was good at it. That is funny put it in. And I I mean. The rest of that burn book. It's accurate because it's like teenagers. But all the insults are not particularly imaginative. They're not good. Yeah. They're just kind of the same words. I mean, it's just not a very well written burn book. So I just thought that she was like seizing on someone else's ability to do something and taking credit for it. I think that particular instance, of the burn book either way that you want to look at it. This is this is how we know that Regina, George is like a brilliant villain because either a she knew what she was doing. And she was setting it up and she her and Karen beforehand had the conversation when we walk in the room, pull the burn book out and then flip through the pages. Get to the page with Damian and Janice because I saw her hanging out with Damon and Janice because they explain right before then that Gretchen knows everything about everybody. And then they get to that. Then that one picture and they're like, oh who's this? Like setting the bait. Right. Right. So I think we're either gonna go that route and in in that case, Regina, diabolical diabolical genius. Or if not that then the other angle is when she decides when she finds out that Katy has been plotting against her. She's been giving her the the calcium bars, and she goes to the house, and she's very upset. She she decides right. Then in that moment as her response, she's going to frame Katie for the Bern book, which is brilliant on your feet, thinking or brilliant long either way, Regina, George, the burn book is my favorite part of the movie just because of that one theory, you know, let me dig in. That's compelling. I hadn't even thought about that. But I think that so motivated by rage to think of such a great plot. If it's ladder where she was honored feet on her feet thinking what potent rage that is. Yeah. Yeah. Oh. She's cutting the picture of her in Katie and you're expecting, and you know, she writes, the whole thing, and you expect it to be the picture of Katie. And then it's the picture for that. Very smart. So great to watch. Even now, you watch your late and over the mouth also think in the scene where the burn book comes to light. And then they're in the gymnasium and Rachel mcadams. Burying off the shoulder black shirt, the kind of simple flares the white flats she has a show with her and the braid the braid, and the bra straps really noticeably very dozen four high school. I thought she looked so powerful in that moment like more than she had since the very beginning of the meeting that it was like a real like rise of the Phoenix. She also looks thirty. That's what she goes from teenager to casual mom anyway. Casual monster, casual cash monster. Anyway. Next category is maybe she had a point. Is there an argument you can make that justifies regina's amorality and the movie the whole just the yes, I can make go for it doesn't have anything to do with their Sam. Okay, after that was just gonna say, I that's the only thing that is defensible and his gra- not defensible, but is grounded in emotional behavior that the rest of it access my defensive Regina, George would be that Regina is not the villain. The villain is within ourselves without. Well, I mean, I think it's so fascinating that you love Gretchen because I actually think wretched might be worse than Regina and kind of at the end of the movies. She's the only one that she joins another click. Order. She needs the rules. She needs to tell other people that they're down and they're not following her system. She probably needs to be kept hell down like she probably so insecure plays into like her complex of insecurity yet. When I look at Gretchen. I just I just see a person who wants a place, right? And that touches me. But that's I mean, but that's kind of the place movie, and that's Katie wants a place to and then she gets caught up in it and becomes a part of it. And then we learned that wanting a place is not all it's cracked up to be. You gotta be comfortable with yourself. See I think eighty also has an experienced a crash in a very long time shirt. Not really drives her seriously though. Like, I think that she is corrupted both by the power of being the plastics it also like just lost four. Yeah. Guide. Her math class hot dumb guy important to note. But those are both things that are that those are Katie things. Yeah. Anything that Regina has done to her. Now, gene is a psychopath. Let's not you know, not gonna around that as meaner to other people than she is Katie like, she's really mean to Janice. Yeah. Because she knows katie's threat as his why she's playing that game. Yeah. Right with her the whole time. But so much of her power is power that other people give to her so much of it because everyone's like, oh, I want this. I want that. If I only be like that excetera that's not defensive. Are. You ask me if there was any defensive for it's not a defensive her. But she's not the only problem here. How about that two things that you please do number one. I think the point of regina's villainy is she just wants dominance. She wants to she wants to crown. She wants to be the Queen. She wants me the standard. And if we look at them the movie in general in the end, she was she was justified because the whole movie is her pin. It against Katie. And it turned out that that was exactly what was happening. Katie was it threat Katie was trying to to undo her and you mentioned the second ago. Regina, wasn't the villain. The villain was within ourselves. I'm gonna I'm gonna take. Yeah. The way can we make the argument that Katie was DeVille in absolutely in this movie. Because of course, she when she joined the plastics. They were very clear and very upfront. These are the rules. Yeah. You have to wear pink on Wednesdays. You can only wear points out this. I'm bubba. But one of the rules was very explicitly stated, you can't date this guy. This was her. This is Regina drags ex wife, and he's off the table. If you're going to be in the group, you have to understand that. And that was the that was what ended up as Jillian mentioned what ended up setting Katie off because Katie wasn't going to attack her until she saw Regina kissing their. And at the that, the I think that there's a strong case to be made here that is the true villain. Katie is a true she also caused the most actual harm for Gina who has she harmed. Emotionally, she harmed many people, and she's just kind of casually cruel to everyone doesn't care and is just a bad person. She's a bad person. But like the person who has goes through a whole like heart of darkness turn. Absolutely. There's no change with Regina jewelry until the very very end. Can we just talk for a second is please don't date my ex boyfriend a reasonable request one hundred percent agree as well. I mean, I get it affairs of the heart are quite contentious. And you know, are the subject of all our movies and shows and songs, but it's it's you could at least expensive. Conversation for someone to feel away about it. Because so much of your young friendships are built around. Let me tell you about a date tell you have a crush on this person, and all of a sudden that's all getting much together. It's just unfair. That's unfair to Regina, George. Next category. The Jason stadium school for rehabilitation. Okay. Have you seen the fast and furious movies? We've seen all of them right and furious seven let me run through Rubik, but in fierce seven Jason's say them as the villain. He's older brother Bill in from the movie prior. And it starts out with him killing one of the members of dominance crew. He kills Han. And then he spends a whole rest of the movie trying to kill everybody. He sends a bomb to Brian's house, Brian and Mia. They're married. They have a child. He sends gigantic bomb furious seven he's a horrible person and furious eight he's back and by the end of the movie, he's not only a part of the group were just going to ignore. He killed a Han and tried to murder this child, but he's like a beloved member that he gets invited to a rooftop cookout, and they're all chummy chummy. That's what we call in this category. The Jason thank you, Jerry deft primer. Thank you. And then an action scene while taking care of a baby. Oh, great seek it out. I think the movie begins to answer this question for us already. But Ken, Regina, George be rehabilitated truly rehabilitated not just senior year. When you're in the past. I think now is my answer. She thinks she falls back to it. Yes. I do. I think her mother is also really bad influence, she so we're going to talk about her mother in a minute that. Yeah. The Amy Poehler character is I contact just seen Steelers. So good. Has has become more of a paradigm that I think any of those characters like, oh, that's the that's the mean girls. Cool. Mom, trying to school mom. And I think that she's a really bad influence, whereas Katie has better influences around her in Virginia, George will just fall back into fighting for number one and posing rigid rules when they suit her best. She needs to get hit by a bus every two years to like Lee set differently spinal injury ever that was one thing that I felt like they didn't talk enough about it. And the movie she gets hit by the bus. The bus is going. Let's say at least forty miles an hour the school zone speed limit is thirty five when there's no kids around. Let's say the buses going forty you get hit head on. And then like a week later, you're fine. You're just wearing thing. She should have died. Right. Jason street was paralysed. She should be a quadriplegic. Okay. Faces the street pool. Next category. This bonus footage is there a moment that we know for certain happened in the mean grow universe that we don't get to see that you would like to see and I'll give you an example to get us started. We know that Regina broke up with Samuel's. Like, I kind of want to see what a Regina George break-up. Looks like why do you think there's debate between Karen Gretchen about about who broke up with him small moment? But Karen's like why forgot who says at one says, you know, he broke up with her last summer than the other says, no she broke up with him. Okay. Karen says that yeah. I thought she broke with inversion omen does. She purposely give misinformation to Gretchen to control her and paint different picture of herself in Gretchen mind because like why would care. No that progression doesn't. Yeah. Should be like part of the the plastics primer. Like, this is the info Regina was dumped or Georgina jumped Tim, or whatever another moment, I would have liked to have seen. I want to hear Janice. His side of the story when we talk about degrade parties, seventh grade party, we should also at least mention like regina's, very, clearly, homophobic. Oh, yeah. Yes. This is not a good thing at all. But I would like to hear Janice side of the story here. What happened here Regina left some parts out? There's something missing. Absolutely. Yeah. It would've liked to flashback scene there. Yeah. Or something. I'm kind of curious about regina's like like Hauraki montage about get getting back into fighting shape to get ready for the for the spring fling. Okay. Would've liked more regina's? I see day to day, Regina stuff. I wanna know. And it's hard to do without Katie there because you can't really do this in flashback, but I just kinda wanna know what the status quo Regina raining is like is she the type of person who's like does a lot of activities, and is on the, you know. What's your college application? Should getting great grades. She just really pretty and it's only boy status based which kinda seems like it is. But they don't really talk about. I guess they talk about katie's grades. But otherwise, there aren't really they're just nerds there. No goody goodies. We asked curious about right. I just kinda wanna know what type of Queen bee. She is. What's it? Look like when she's raining. We only get her on the downfall. It's true. It also. Because completely threw katie's lens. Like, what are the like, what are her insecurity is that you know, you can like gleam them from the character? Like, what is she? What is she more outwardly insecure about the scene or they're standing in front of the mirror, and they're like, oh, I hate this hate that is like so great because it's like a learned behavior to be critical of yourself. But then gets in the way of knowing what they're actually like self conscious about physically. Yeah. Which I would've been interested. How do we feel about Lindsay hands performances? Katie. Timeout. This is a new category right here. Which means what I was supposed to have done is. I was supposed to have given the title of it and also quick explanation for the title of it is over masked undermatched for fair fight. And the quick explanation is this is the part of the podcast where we talk about whether or not the person playing the protagonist did as good a job is to person playing the villain. Didn't give any of that information of just went straight into it. And it's it reminds me of when you call someone on the phone and the answer every once in a while the personal answer, and they won't say Hello just start talking. And when they do you like fucking relax for a second guy. Say hello. That's the mistake. I made right here. What I'm gonna do? Now since you now know what title is, and you now know what the explanation I'm just going to reach started from the beginning, and it will also find so that's going to thanks back to the podcast. How do we feel about Lynn? Hello, Hans performances, Katie Rachel mcadams Jean Georges like pitch perfect now. One single thing that you can change to make it better that she could have done or said, she's she's throwing fastballs the whole the whole movie as Bill Simmons likes to say. Yes, was Lindsay Lohan able to keep up with her. I think she's pretty good except the speech at the spring fling her like being contrite. I think as bad. But I think that she started. I think she starts out really strong. It gets. Now's good by the end. But I think in general the performances in this movie are quite good. This was the first movie. I saw Lindsay Lohan see freaky Friday until after this because I watched this one. And I was like I this is she's let me watch more of the stuff that she's that she's been in. I really really liked her performance here. She has a couple of little tiny things that she does that. I think is reserved for a very good actors or actresses like when they're sitting down at the table that first time and Regina George house. Shut up, and it's just shut up against didn't hadn't say the way. She says that it's just so. It's just so packed with with. Meaning she's really good at being. Startled and confused and kind of the vessel through which we learn the world, she she is very good at the fish out of water part of it. I it is funny. She addition she really wanted to be Regina, George Lindsay Lohan handed, and I don't think that she could she can't pull off mean girl as well. As to my cat. It's thank God that they cast it the way it did because some of her plastic stuff. And again, I think this performance it's good because she's not quite selling it as well. And she's not supposed to be right? You know, the point of this is that that's not who she is. And she's not comfortable. But yeah, man. She's no, she's no Rachel mcadams. And that department definitely not Lindsay Lohan as she becomes more plastic and has the worst haircut is so distracting. Hannah's so hideous. I if I had a daughter like I would just be like the no clear getting a haircut right now. She has such beautiful hair. And then it's just these weird little bangs. It's also the foundation shade that they're picking for her does not work, which the. Yeah, it looks bad which the character. It's so rough many of those clothes and certainly looked much worse than them. Looks back. Full skirts, man. We did that moment. I had flash proliferation of like, spandex jersey, close skirts shirts, so bad. Also, the layering that she did what she actually looks pretty good. And I think I did that might hire freshman year of college like like a T shirt on top of very hang Tom. I don't know why I don't know. It was the fascist spot on and so bad. She doesn't for as Amandus had a rough year for for women's fashion. Really tough, very bad. Less category. This one's called mistakes. Out. This category is not called mistakes, it's called regrets. And I don't think I need to point out. The irony in me screwing up this specific category. Back to the podcast. Who makes the biggest mistake when dealing with Regina, George, and I've got some options for you. Okay. Mistake. Number one Gretchen wieners for vowing allegiance, tour big mistake. It's hard. Going hard on this gas. Amanda known you or so anti Gretchen, I would not have invited. Well, I would've I would've asked somebody Gina George move. Mistake number two, principal Duval for not sniffing out that Regina George was the one who made the burn book he should have figured that out. I mean in general his administration policies leave something to be desired. He's really not that great a mistake. Number three, Janice for sending Katie to infiltrate the plastics. That was a big one Janice gets painted as this. Great. Great friend. Yeah. Is when Katie walks in the class of first time, they're like, oh, don't sit right here. Because this far she can't sit there because this is sits whatever she gives her the map that she clearly spends a lot of time on. But when we look at outside of that like, she does a bunch of not great things sending Katie to join the plastics who she views as the most dangerous room in the school Katie could have gotten killed, and if not literally she could've socially and killed for the rest of her high school days, but she was just as manipulative as George was. She's like among the worst people in this movie. Thank she's like a also manipulator vindictive amply into the stereotypes as much anyone else. Who are the good people in this movie misnomer, very Tina Fey wrote herself as a good person? Yeah. Aaron Samuels also a good guy. Well is he he's down? Ebeling bad behavior, and then pretending to be confused at really think he's taking a stand when it matters. Karen, Karen was a caring person. Yeah. How dare you imply otherwise ESPN line is just so good. When I was re watching this movie, and I'm seeing all the different scenes play out. And I keep flashing to other movies that I feel like oh, you just ripped us off from here. That's the way I felt when watching and I saw Janice Katie to infiltrate the plastics. I felt like this scene in the departed when Mark Martin sheen or like, oh, you're fresh out of the academy joined the Castillo's. Good luck die like they ripped it off from their main gross conic mistake number four Katie for sending Regina to go talk to Erin Samuels for. She was warned times by Janice. Don't do this just did that. I think that's the biggest mistake is that what it is. I think just really dumb. Yeah. That's a that's a big mistake to make because it sets the rest of it. Also, mental misunderstanding of Regina likes to. It's just of course, she's not going to support you in talking to her ex mistake. Number five four Taylor for meeting up with Jason at the mall. Do does the rest of the school. No. If you've been touched by the plastics, like don't touch the boy anymore. I don't know. It's probably nice. She seems a bit younger also. So she has no idea what's going on. I mean, it's also just don't hang out with that guy. It no matter what plastics. That's terrible guy. Don't don't hang out with him. And the last option MRs George for raising Regina the way that she rates. I would argue she doesn't consider herself to have made any mistakes. I bet she's like pleases punch except for the bus situation. I feel for the bus situation feeling Amy Poehler character is probably very pleased that could have been another one. We added to the bonus footage. How does she accept? Yeah. Because she's right there watching does. She just like, oh is your face. Okay. Yeah. What's the biggest mistake that somebody makes when dealing with Regina, George if you don't have any I've already voted it, sending your setting him deal? Getting where I was looking at Amanda forgot to say, Amanda, it's Gretchen Gretchen gives her power damage. She does without Gretchen. She has no army. She has no source of power. She can't enforce anything. She's just like your average high school terror just like anybody else. So it's Gretchen Gretchen sets all of these events into motion. It's always the number two. It's always the henchmen to conceal airy. And in mean girls, it's always the consideration blame. Yeah, I'm sorry. The more the more you're saying that the more make sense about I'm not going to agree with that. Okay. That's fine. Put your mic jank's. I think it's this ending sending Regina to talk to Erin. That's rookie mistake. Yeah. I mean, she is rookie when it comes to social interaction, but come on. I thought you were smart, Katie Herron. Yeah. Just good at math. I suppose.

"You're listening to own the Queen as the best. This is like in danger David. Yeah and Apple Guys.

And you are well and healthy wherever you are whenever you're listening to this So excited for this week's episode with Regina Fang from perfectly imperfect podcast because she and I get to sit down to talk about body positivity and body image. Which if you don't know this about me by now I'm about talking about this topic. It is incredibly important. I think it's immoral universal an issue that all of us deal with human beings and Highly influenced by the society and culture that we're living in so I love packing this and I love hearing other people's thoughts and Regina is an incredibly wise and passionate person so I'm just so glad that she is taking the time to sit down to talk about this with me Jeanane I actually know each other through the airwaves. And through the PODCASTS world. We've known each other for several years. I think at this point but Got To know each other much more personally To Co hosting the event off the MIC. Which was our live event Last month in October in La and that was a collaboration between first of all perfectly imperfect. Asian Bosco girl podcast And that was such a great day. One hundred fifty people coming out to hang out with us and just talk about all the different experiences that we go through personally how we help each other out and that day. Regina actually hosted a breakout work. Session about body positivity and because I was simultaneously running my session on freelancing inside hustling. I couldn't listen to that. Discussion knows pretty bummed about that so I found a solution which is to Finagle Regina to come to my podcast and have my own private discussion on about body positively. So that's what this episode is and It was such a great discussion and Regina's so open and honest about her experiences. Her perspectives and her realizations about herself. And hopefully I am too and together. I hope that we can continue to create a space where others can go into that part of themselves and acknowledge whatever needs to be acknowledged in good time and to learn embrace yourself and deal with a lot of the struggles that people deal with their bodies and with how we feel about ourselves as people because it is a very deeper thing besides just you know the physical self so yeah.

Very good and positive in your life. And that's it for the intro. I will talk to you later and plugs but I hope that you enjoy this. Episode on Body positivity and body image with Regina. Enjoy off shoes. Boy You pledge yourself which a non assets I I don't know. How are You doing this Regina? I'm doing well excited to be here your first time. Like guesting on another podcast. Are you serious? Yeah I believe you're such a natural podcast conversations my house. That's a travesty. Thank you thank you know. I'm super excited to be here. Been like such a big fan of your podcast and I feel like I don't know I just I love listening to you speak. I feel like the podcast is just obviously like a great way. I mean we have known each other only for a few months but I feel like every time we talk. It's just so real and raw and genuine. I feel like I've known you forever. I feel the same way. Well it's funny because I've been listening to your podcast with Christine perfectly imperfect. I've been listening to that for quite a while so I feel like it's that same feeling of like we know each other feel. I've talked with you and heard your thoughts and feelings for awhile. Sounds interesting feeling of connection which I appreciate but no. I've had so much fun getting to know you. Regina this shoutouts off the Mike Girls because this was a great connection. Oh yeah definitely definitely yeah. Well we're here. This was actually something that I wanted to do for quite a while even before off the Mike and it was just further solidified by events where you got to host such a great conversation. I heard it from multiple people about body positivity and just knowing more about what you've been going through as a person as a professional I stopped me so great to have you sit down and talk with me on first of all okay because it is something. It's a topic that you know. I think any person can relate to yeah yours truly for sure And I'm just curious because I couldn't be part of your breakout session. I was curious like how that went for. You like what you guys talked about there. So the first time we ever even brought up this topic of light body positively or just like body. Consciousness was in an episode. We did for perfectly perfect also like way way in the beginning and I remember. I had such a hard time recording. That was my first time really actually owning up to it because I've always grown up like a little curvier than other girls you know. I'm not necessarily plus sized but you know girls got a booty and it was always like really hard for me to buy. Clothes made me feel really self conscious to like constantly compared to other Asian American females. And so I think that it was so hard for me to record that that even as I was editing. I ended up opening up more like ended up editing like recording separate clips and then having that inserted in because I felt like I wasn't tripping as true and open about my body image issues like that. I grew up kind of struggling with so that was like my first kind of intro into just like kind of talking about it more openly. That's because that's such a public way. You know what I mean if you've never even say in a private setting between friends like really even acknowledged it to go. It's like going zero to one hundred pretty quick so I just wanted to take a second sorry to interrupt but just commend that because I think it's incredibly brave like honestly I don't know this whole podcast situation. Just getting to know myself in my thirties. And even before that which was like being aware of like your own truth as as cliches that sound but like knowing yourself and knowing how you are y you are the way you are. The total is a big deal. You know so yeah I mean I feel like that's how I feel about my own podcast where I feel like I'm diving into these topics where I'm like Ha. I didn't realize that that behavior stemmed from. This is why I think the way that I do so I am very grateful for that and yeah I think that with this. I think that the outreach to that from the community after you do talk about these like really hard hitting topics like that was super encouraging to just hear like other people's struggles that they feel the same way and the thing is like everybody has some sort of warped body image issue. I'd like you know even my friends who I think are. Oh so perfect. They're all like Oh. I hate my hips. I hate my Blah Blah. Everybody has that about themselves. And I think that that's what I wanted the session to be about where it's like a lot of these perceptions that we have about ourselves are the most negative thoughts that we think about ourselves one hundred percent not in like but the thing is the problem is is that we project onto other people and whether that's dating friends meeting. New People like I remember sometimes like in College. I would wear like a skirt. That's like a little tighter. Maybe my stomach showing a little and I'd be like Oh my God. You know this guy that I'm meeting right now. That's probably all he sees that which is consumed me. Oh my God. I looked terrible. I feel terrible and it's probably not even what the other prisoners thinking in the first and so we always build up this idea of who we are in other people's eyes when in reality that's just how we think about ourselves. Oh totally and it's like that's the all consuming nature of these insecurities. Should they go in my opinion? This is my opinion but like should they go unacknowledged they they start to really run the show. And that's the part that I think has been so maddening about that whole process of becoming more self. Aware is recognizing because it is a very for me at least. It was like a super humbling infuriating realization of like how much these decisions or these into not decisions. Honestly I wasn't deciding I feel like these insecurities these beliefs or these are straight up this board at like paranoia right really delusions of grandeur. Whatever you WANNA call them. I don't know what the proper a psychological term is but it ran my life. You know and in part still kind of does which still pisses me off in like a noisy. But I'm just really trying to reconcile without which is why I care about having these kinds of conversations because it does help to hear that I'm not alone in this. Play this issue and this feeling of like you. Sometimes you like. You're crazy person because you can't ever just chill you're not for me. At least I just. I couldn't relax 'cause I'm always in my head about it. Yeah and your mind is just thinking about all the negative things about yourself not even just about body image is like oh. I don't like the way I said that I don't like the way that I wrote that. I don't like the way that you don't like it's it's all consuming and I feel like that so much so negatively affects your self esteem and the way that you via the way that you view yourself the way that you even put yourself out there. You know like even a work situation friend situation. I feel like when you start thinking about all these negative thoughts. You don't put your best self forward for and I love what you said about acknowledging the fact that you have these insecurities. I think that was huge for me. I think in the beginning I was always like why do I feel this way? Why do I have these like negative thoughts about myself all the time in? Why my projecting that I'll to other people. I think that when I was able to really hone in on like okay this stem from growing up in an Asian household where Asian family members not just parents which is of like. Pick at your body like. Oh yeah they take liberties. Yeah exactly right. It's it doesn't even phase them. It's like asking about the weather. It's like Oh you've gained weight. Thank you you're so bad. Yeah my yeah exactly. And it's like such a mixed like ward cultural thing too and I remember when I was little like one of my great aunts used to like love to like like slap my arms and my thighs us like so bound. C. And she's like Oh so good to like and I was just like oh readings okay. We can unpack that. I definitely want to go there. And and because there's so much there layers to that because what you're saying is like there's cultural like preconceived notions there's cultural beliefs like to some people. That really isn't a disrespectful thing to do. It's not harmful thing for them to do because there again it's their perception of what beauty is or what a body you know like does it in America. It's like hyper independent. Like my body is mine like I did not consent to that and then everything in like a lot of Asian cultures and beyond is very communal. It's like my body is not my body my body. My Body belongs to my parents and like my future husband. Or whatever like it doesn't necessarily belong to you so those lines and those boundaries are just so different and that can result in so many different interpretations of behavior. So yeah I'm just okay. I definitely want to get to the M so curious to kind of do a Prequel to that conversation to understand when I'm curious when you became aware of your body like do you now that you have this awareness now as an adult. Do you remember when you started a feel any sort of like self consciousness. Was it like puberty was at younger than that. I'm curious I feel like it was really more so in middle school and the thing is right like I never felt bad about my buddy. I only started feeling bad about my body when other people started pointing things out or when I started comparing gene sizes to my friends and I was like yeah. Their numbers smaller. That mine like what? I don't think that we consciously are you know like ashamed of our bodies but I think it's something that like society and your social circles that slowly kind of influence that so I think my biggest will one the things that's coming to mind right now is like in middle school when sisterhood of the traveling. Pan a huge movie. We all read the book or watch. The movies are so excited about it. My friends were like. Oh my God it'd be so cool if like we had a pair of traveling pants God like Oh my God. Okay like yeah. Let's do that. And when like they would choose the size and I like couldn't squeeze into it and then finally when I found a pair that I use into it was like falling off of them and so I feel like that was probably one of the first instances when I was like. Oh my gosh. I'm so much bigger than them. Like I can't fit into the same gene size. How did that make you feel when you recognize that was? I was at a feeling of like just embarrassment was like. Yeah Yeah Okay. Yeah I think it was just like I was embarrassed as kind of like. Oh My Gosh. What do they think of me? Which is which is like a huge very middle school thing way to thinking right like Ooh what do they think that fit into the same gene sizes them and it wasn't even that they were pointing it out like none of them were like. Oh my gosh like you you have to be a size. Like I don't know eight or ten and it wasn't that at all it was totally me in my head building up. Like oh my gosh. What do they think of me? Now that you know where where are sizes are so different so no one was Regina Georgian. You Regina Jordan in school. I don't know I feel like I had a mildly like decent middle school time in regards. I fought with my friends but like who did it in middle school. I never really had experienced a lot of bullying or like finger pointing which. I'm very grateful for because I'm a very soft person enough. I feel like able to handle that but I think that it was a lot of like in a way like I was bullying myself and then like self criticisms that I just carried on through the rest of my life. I mean it's hard to shake that for sure and I think that whenever that awakening comes in terms like carrying about your appearance I guess because Middle Schools attender time and it's a time of coming of age kind of the average. The median time. Where a lot of people go through puberty become aware of their sexual interest starts going to and and that does affect because suddenly whatever you're talking about your personality and certainly our appearance starts matter in a different way. That did it before. Suddenly it's like this currency that just comes into existence you're like oh so-and-so's look prettier than me will. What what makes her prettier. Well she's she. Looks like all the girls on TV. She's skinny she has long hair are no like what have you right. And those things I think. Start getting embedded in in our minds like I'm doing going full psychologist on here. Just like my observations. Those Q. Start Getting into our brains. I think really really young like Disney. You know what I mean like. The princesses said a very specific. The long flowing. Hair the lake. You know. They're all like just so whatever I can't even I don't know why just dictating. I'm like making movements. See me but no because they have very beautiful hair their waste their time easy. You know teeny tiny. Their eyes are huge. Like it's it's a very it's a cartoon but when you're A kid I don't think you can see that like I don't think that you believe that. That's our tune and so you start taking those on as like realistic beauty expectations right. I was Ariel one hundred percent like I was in the pool and I was Ariel. I know I remember Jasmine's like hair. Oh my God even to this day. I'm like Oh my gosh. Just give me half of that amount of hair. I'll be very pleased the volume her eyebrows. Like as I started getting older there was like more and more that I didn't like about myself. Oh yeah and I think that that is. I mean like in again. It's always when someone else pointed out to me so I remember In like call high school going into college. I was in a youtube video where somebody was like. Oh my God. Her thighs are so big. I was like Oh my God are they and then someone else pointed out to. Oh my gosh. That girl has no eyebrows. Was like doing you. Just start painting them in and so these are all beauty standards that I didn't even place myself I will. I never thought that I didn't have eyebrows. I never thought that my thighs really big but then slowly and slowly as I started reading these comments I feel like I needed to kind of put on this persona to kind of combat that so I remember when they got the thick thighs comment. I made like a tumbler post about it and I was like ought to hauling them out. I know right Tumbler. Oh it has a special special place in my heart but I remember made this like Tumbler Post about it and I was. You know very like I feel like that was already like kind of like the beginning of my lake body positively. But I don't know if I believed in it as much as I was like preaching it and even Christine. My co-host perfectly imperfect she was like. Oh Wow. I thought that you handled that criticism extremely well and I think that on the outside I would always try to show that it didn't bother me and even when my parents make comments to this day like I still put up like this front to be like no no no like well. I love my curves. I love my you know Blah Blah and I feel like that was something that I was still something I've really struggled with on the inside so like birds and like what I was feeling about myself like weren't really like coinciding for sure and I think once you try to an to degree you can look at it multiple ways like your ears like do the fake it till you make it but you're you're trying to preserve yourself you're trying to preserve some sense of self love or or dignity or protection of yourself and for me. Actually I started my whole journey with being self aware of my body and honestly being ashamed of my body really young and it started within my own family because I had a older brother and he. I Love You. Lewis. You're the best. He's on our best best friends like I will have. I will get him on this podcast when because I do not WanNa continues like throw him under the bus but as kids. He was a punk like he was just a punk and he was punked by my dad. And then I'm next in the ring so I got you. I received his wrath but he used to make fun of me. You know. And he's call me fat or poke at me. 'cause there were times like I look. In retrospect I was Chubbier at times like I would go and waves. Because you're just growing your child and Super military so I'm just exposed imagining a sound of music scenario where all the kids are like. Kinda okay so like Korean Americans will feel me on this. There's a different way that like some kids get punched in certain ways which get when you're growing up is just normal but like for me like there's something called Standing part which means you have to like. You basically have to sit with your arms up for like an hour and two or whatever do Chinese like does your recent in like a normal chair or up link yet to like stand on your knees or you'd have to stand in a corner or you sit and you just have to raise your arms like that's part of the punishment because after about like five minutes it starts really freaking hurt to do it for an hour like whatever your punisher decides and like. This is stuff that was happening. Maybe to this day in Korean schools like that's how teachers would disciplined students in Korea. And they would literally if you're a punk in in class and you needed to get disciplined if you didn't get your hand slapped by a ruler or whatever like you had to stand. I mean that's a non violent way right. Interests is torture directly to the exactly like psychologically damaged. That's the long term. We think long term. We're not exactly but like I would. I would have bratty moments. I definitely leverage the tears. I like put on the waterworks to get my brother more trouble. If you like pissed me off. And so yes older brother. He's older okay. And so one of the new punishment so he used to make me do that where he likes it with my arms up and like hurt and I cried more but like one day he like maybe run laps and do sit ups and so this is kind of like where we're like super military family like my grandfather was in the crane arm us like a colonel and like that's how they would like my dad did that to make him run laps. It's like a coach like a sports coach. Drill sergeant so like. He did that to me my brother. He's a great person you guys but he punished me and like I had to run and he was just like yelling at me and like you know telling me do sit up. I just remember those pretty young those before I was ten and I just kind of recognized like oh I'm not able to. It was really hard for me to like run and I always hated P at school too so like all these things and I liked boys really early starting when I was like four so I really cared like if I was pretty and stuff all these things including the way that like. I was disciplined by my family. And the way that like you're talking about culture like the Korean culture was very very openly having dialogue on body and like. Oh you're pretty you look pretty today. Oh you look like what you just so direct passive aggressive and everything else but in that were super direct. I feel like an. It's an it's like with immediate family right like it's like parents to children and sometimes even chill. I think that well I think that the children back to the parents thing is more so like us being more Americanized. Yeah like I watched the farewell again recently with my parents because they really wanted them to kind of I wanted to spark that talk about Lake East versus was because I think there are a lot of differences still and I always thought of myself as like. Oh yes I was born here but I feel like there's a lot of like eastern ideals that I still believe in follow and stuff like that but I feel like that Mooney Matt movie is like so defining where it's like. I don't agree and I think that that's like I don't know. I always as a kid like I just kind of did as I was told. I really went with the flow like I didn't have a favourite anything I didn't really like stand up or have any like very very strong opinions about anything so I feel like in a way like when my parents would make these comments or family members would make these comments. I would just kind of be like Oh okay and kind of like absorb it and I don't even know if it made me feel anything until later on when I started started to like. Yeah affect me more. I started to like boys starting to compare myself to other girls schools and I was like. Oh my God. That girl is so pretty. I always found myself staring at other girls' more than I stare at guys just because unlike. Oh my God. She's so pretty standard. Yeah even yesterday at a pilates. Classes girl came in a crop top and like flat stomach like wow. I know the feeling when you say that my heart I understand. Ya and so I think that in this and I think that in high school it was when I started kind of fighting back against my parents when they would say stuff about my weight and very much more so college and I feel like from my parents perspective you know. I think that they have a medical background so I think that they are trying to come out. This set like we WanNa make sure you don't have a family. History of high blood pressure and diabetes and stuff like that and I understand the health concerns but I think that when they kind of blatantly just comment on like Oh that looks a little tight on you or like. Oh that doesn't look good on you because you're bigger like I think those ideas started like really resonating with me and that's when it started really affecting kind of I didn't want to wear. I like love close. That's that was like a huge thing as well. My mom was always like. Oh well you like close so much. Why don't you lose weight to look good in them and I slipped. My mom had like does not hold and I love her to death and I understand where she's coming from but this is a cultural difference for a white mom would never say and like I said that on. Tv like they would totally get called out on it especially in this climate for an Asian me telling you that you're kind of like yeah. Yeah sounds like my mom would say you know and so. I think that it's like little comments like that. That I would then harbor and then that became my idea of myself i. I couldn't be pretty because I was bigger. I was undesirable because I was bigger like all of these things and it doesn't have to just be with guys. It could have been like a job or like a friend It bled into everything. Well I've I I I just need to thank you for being so vulnerable and honest about that because it is it is a big thing to admit but like just a dive into because this is this is so I think intrinsically tied to our sense of self and that we can look at it from one asset which is a huge aspect. I never downplayed the impact of our feelings of attractiveness and our feelings of like I'm telling you the data shows it for my own podcast like the dating and relationships thing like having somebody that you have chemistry with and that you feel romantic feelings with that. Element of ourselves is incredibly secret. It's important so we often look at this. Whole situation of desirability and like attractiveness and physical beauty from that aspect. But I just want to also acknowledge the fact that this is way it can be. We can zoom out so much further. Because that's just one part you know and this goes so much hand in hand with just self confidence in general like the feeling of having a right to occupy space like the feeling of worthiness to have a freaking opinion in a meeting. It has nothing to do with like. Am I going to Bang anybody in this room or not? It has anything you know. It's just like who am I. You know what I mean. And that's the part that I think has when I'm unpacking like my Korean rage like what are the things that my brother has asked me. He's like what are you so angry about like and he didn't ask me in like like a sarcastic like why are you so mad. He's like what? What are you angry about. Like what are the things that fuel this this race because everybody? That's Korean like jokes about it. We all know we have this like burning fire inside inferno but I I want to identify it and I want to be part of. It is what you're talking about this like sense of self that you did not choose to mold in this way but now you're kind of stuck with it you're there so what do I do. I mean I think that that was honestly my biggest issue like I feel like a lot of kids. Parents will call them Brady and whatever because they were like so opinionated and they were like so kind of aware and conscious of who they were. I think that was my biggest issue. I didn't know who I was and I just let other people tell me who I was and as I started getting older and like that. Not Settling with me. That was like oh well. Why don't I have opinions about this? Why don't I speak up more? And it's because I think culturally. I was taught like my last. My Chinese name is gene which means quiet and they end. My parents gave that name to me. Because they're like you're a girl. You should be not submissive but just like you know very polite very easy going very like kind of not causing a disturbance and even to this day like my dad reminds me. He's like Oh you know. I think it's great that you know you're creating this continent how this pockets and stuff like that. But maybe like you know. Stray away from some of the harder topics like politics or something like that. He's always like don't cause a Ruckus. Don't draw attention to yourself. Don't upset people what you have to say. And that's not. I feel like if I were to say that in kind of American contexts like that can be taken in a very negative way but I understand where they're coming from because I grew up in that household for sure so I think for the long and that's something like the self identity crisis is what I'm still dealing with today. As I was taught to be so easy going that I don't know what I want and I think that that's what this be. The bigger part of this year has been for me like trying to figure out what I want but then also struggling with this like ideal of who I should be who I could be And the not necessarily like matching up all of the time Ray and finding some semblance of acceptance in between Yeah and so and I feel like that also plays like it. Plays a huge part of just like every aspect of my life. You know like kind of going back to like the body image issue thing. Some of my friends since moving back to L. A. Like one of them in particular. She's like gone to personal training like three to five times a week and she's lost a lot of weight she looks great and a lot of the times a look at that and be like well I have. She's working a fulltime job as well versus. I'm still doing like my podcast. Some of my clothing line stuff and I feel like I could have committed myself as well. So why didn't I like? Why was I- Lazy? And like why do? I always make excuses for myself and I feel like that really bleeds into like how I feel about myself to like. Oh if other people can do it like why? Why can't I and Adele recently came out and she like lost a ton of weight and I was like. Wow she looks great. I mean not just because she lost weight. But I don't know like that affects me when I see other people kind of going toward circle of like weight loss. It has nothing to do with me why I mean I think that's we're just social creatures. I think that that makes total sense because we look to each other for some sign of hope you know or like I'm an inspiration but I'm lake. Achievability thing is like all these things that we talk about on our podcast about Asian representation just like working in an industry where you don't see a lot of women or whatever whatever it's kind of like can be done and you when you see those signs of like. Oh my gosh that person. We are similar body size irs body type and I can only imagine. There's kind of a built sympathy empathy of they understand how hard it must be because we have these similar like just assumption wise but like you seem like we have a similar struggle and like they did it. That's incredible and I think that those things are super important which is why again. I go back to like why I praise you and Christine for creating the platform that you have and all of us honestly for being the people that are gonna be for whatever reason if we're considered rabble-rousers fine like I've had to deal with the exact same feelings as you regina in terms of like being not oppressed suppressed a little bit because I in terms of like letting your fool self shine right and like being told in so many words either directly or through other indirect means like the way that your personality is or your thoughts and opinions could cause you harm in trouble which they can Assad untrue but in in instead of that instead of being fully fleshed out human being just hold it back and just keep it to yourself and coming from someone who was opinionated since birth. It was definitely a constant push. Pull and then when it came to my body. It was the same thing because I kept having so many things dictated to me about the way I look and I stood up. It wasn't even my my mom's actually the one that super loving and very very like always home beautiful so I- forever just appreciate her always being that that source of unconditional love but it seemed like everybody else had an opinion like my grandma her sister. My Dad like my brother. Everyone has something to say. I'm like all right. We'll go F yourself. Nice that you have. I mean I know my parents love me unconditionally. As well but you know they have a lot of opinions. Yeah I feel very very vocal with her opinion and I think that now that I'm older too like she'll like all push back or if she talks about a certain like my body in a certain way I'll get very upset with her and I'll tell her straight like. I think that like it took me until now to have days where I'm like. Ooh I'm really loving the way I'm looking in this dress and the way that these genes on me but it took me so long to get here that like when she does kind of make those kind of side comments it does kind of feel like a sting. It does feel like a couple of steps back. Yeah and you know I totally understand where people are like. Well I could never talk to my mom about it. Because she's not receptive and Blah Blah and I totally relate to that you know on good days. My mom was like okay. Maybe I'll phrase it in different weight and other types. She's like well. You really need to lose the weight. Like I'm saying this for your future health. We get into it so I think that it's kind of finding that balance of what your body means to you. Yeah and it really is remarkable. What our bodies have been able to do for us until this point right like the fact that we're living and breathing and talking and capable of holding conversations and building relationships with other people and being able to hike if we wanted to swim before you know like we're we're so capable of so many things that we overlook yeah and I think that Especially as like my grandmother's kind of sick right now and she's very weak and frail and a thing that that was kind of like a reality. Check for me as well where I was like. You know we're GonNa all have one day where we get there right. It's like what can our bodies allow us to do in the meantime radio and it's so powerful to think about it that way because I think that for me like my journey with my body. I was like okay. Well maybe I don't need to lose the way I just needed tone up and then I would start working out more and I would work out in the ways that other people would work out because I was like oh It works for them. Like they look so great. I want to do that too but then I started to realize. Hey you know there's different kinds of workouts for different people like I can't do hot yoga like some people are like swear by Hot Yoga. I can't do hot yoga because I swear I will pass out like I just can't handle that. He your normal human only whenever I see them coming to go in like I would. I would die. Why are you choosing to do and like my friends have always tried to convince me and one time I accidentally signed up for like it wasn't even hot yoga? It was like war. Beauge in like a seventy eight degrees room. I was dying. I was like never again but I think he was like a. It was just like a trial and error process of learning. What worked for me and I think that like that's kind of the same way as I felt about like fashion. Like what works for my body? And what doesn't and. I think that's another thing too like trends. Trans have the tendency to make me feel really shit about my body because you have these tiny little girls wearing these baggy clothes or like you know things that are cut like really weird and that made me feel really bad about myself and a lot of fast fashion places that go along with these trends will create a size large. That's like for like maximum size. Eight and I mean that is a whole discussion in terms of like again. What 'cause I like to reverse engineer and break it down you know what I mean like. Let's take the layers. Because I have all these feelings like where these feelings coming from why I really do care about that. Which is let's look at. How close are labelled? Let's look at how there's no consistency like. You take two completely different brands and they will tell you one your size ten one year like a size to like there's no there's no consistency and what those numbers start to mean and what they start to register in terms of a reaction of our self image or whatever is tremendous like yes it feels in terms of like now it's going to corporate responsibility in in terms of corporate responsibility of knowing what your product. I'm going to my his startup mentality loving this. What your product is doing in the larger scheme of things. There is a conscious like somebody chose to do that. And somebody can either choose to see the impact of what they're and this is where I think clothing. In general going into this different level of consciousness you can have an awareness of like what these numbers or what this type of advertising does to impact the larger psyche of the masses. You know what I mean and there are real repercussions that I'm the public health major like. Why are these girls anorexic? Like why are people depressed? Why are they you know I? I'm starting to wonder like this. Not Being Hypochondriac by like I'm wondering if I've had like body dismore via because when I look at the clinical definitions I aligned with a lot of them and brings me out and this is the korean-american of like mental health stigma of like being more accepting of like my own weaknesses. I guess like you might vulnerabilities but to like acknowledge and like define. Is this like complete body just Moorefield? Because the way that I feel like I've been having my body and why it just like kind of blows my mind because again you've been living it you just live in you live in and you buy and you see and it just your sponge and you're taking it all in your so angry and why am I sold down on myself and then you stop and think about what you're saying like the voices in your head of how you're talking yourself is just mad toxic. It's it's just you never speak to another human being that mean that negatively auto yourself a hundred years and I totally agree with you on the clothing thing like I think that there is this beauty standard that everybody needs to be a size two size four says zero even and like like clothing and fashion companies like skewing their sizing so that it caters to that audience. When in reality I think I read an article recently where the average size girl is like size fourteen. And it's like. Why are we being fed? This like beauty ideal. That is quite unrealistic. The average size is like a fourteenth right and I think that a lot. I completely agree with you. Like what kind of messaging are these companies like sending out? If a size large an eight. I believe if I was just through the research that I've been doing for my company. I believe this is media. Eight is like six to eight is like a medium and large is like eight to ten and then some immediate changes from company to company. I mean I have a friend when I was doing research on like you know how am I gonNa find the right sizing for the pants that I WANNA make. And she was like. Oh I have pant sizes from eight to fourteen and like how does that make someone feel right? Oh one day. You're an eight. Oh my God I feel great. I an eighth. That's fantastic right next day. You're like trying on a pair fourteen. It just it blows my mind and I know that you know. We're always preaching. Hey you're not you're more than a number and Blah Blah Blah but. I think it's just like psychologically like then keep me consistent brands not asking for much. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the fourteen but it's just like this like kind of wavering between like the numbers and like not really. I feel like that also goes into self identity right at medium plus size. Yes that's completely different. Yeah and I think that like for me that was always like my biggest thing like whenever we look at trends and be like. Oh my God this Thomas let me see if I have it in my size. No they don't or oh. Why is this material cut this way? Why do the shoulders not fit right? It was just so much of like me trying to fit myself into what society was towing versus like me actually being able to embrace the way that I look at finding what works for me. I mean when you're talking about that one of the images that came into my head just I need say this out loud like I've hated shopping. Actually look there's part of me that I love fashion when I see the instagram. And when I I'm like aw that style like I'm obsessed with Blah Blah Blah. I just think it looked so great and it brings me a lot of joy to see fashion and and kind of baskin that creativity in that self expression and the new ways that we can cut fabriker US tweet or whatever I think it's so great love it and I love double wears Prada. Oh my God but yes yes but also I hated the process of shopping like I. It would be like my nightmare every time I needed to go buy new pants because it would. I would be in this badly. Lit Room surrounded by mirrors. And just having to look at myself in this league all different angles normally look at yourself. It and I'm like how is anybody into this? It would literally make me go like how and these are such bad things. But this is me being completely honest and I'm like in my Bra and underwear I'm like how is how. How have I had boyfriends like? I judge myself so harshly of Lang. My Gosh this is. This is horrible. I been living in a crazy land because I look disgusting like I use really harsh words. Like I'm like I've cursed it myself. Like fucking Gross. Like what do you like and then so? I started getting doubt. Go down a very intense rabbit hole of leg. Okay you're not gonNA like cutting myself off from foods like I've done so many of these like fad diets and like yeah the working out and stuff and like all rooted from this deeply insecure place man like it's like it's like not even the clothes itself once you have them but it's like how do you even like enjoy fashion. Enjoy these things that an ideal situation bring you joy it could be an extension of like representing who you are because you like this color. Palette or you like these types of clothes. We can't even get there like I would. Wit refrained from shopping a lot. Because like I'm not putting myself through that I don't yeah I don't need to feel that bad about me today. Oh my gosh totally and I feel like that's one of the reasons why I like now so much. I appreciate like online shopping because then I can like have it sent to me but I I completely I like when you were take fitting rooms. Oh my God is so real. Because like I don't know how many times I walked into a fitting room even in my own closet where I look at myself and I'm like I'm disgusting. Why would anybody even want me and I feel like that also plays into my insecurities that I have with dating like? I'm like oh no one would ever find me attractive so like it doesn't matter how charming I can be whatever outfit I put on because like inherently on the inside. I'm just disgusting. You know that REX I. You're so beautiful. Jean like amazing human and like yeah so wh- when hearing that from you like destroys me of it's like hear them like I feel. Yeah I know and I feel the exact same way about you. I mean even before we met I was like wow is such a powerhouse. And she's going out there and making her dreams come true like I feel like everything that I see. I wish you could see yourself in my lens right like that. I feel like we admire other women so much but then when it comes to ourselves we're like oh we're discussing on dateable unlovable on an higher -able all the all the jazz. But like I think that like that can really really bleed into lake. Even though I'll have my days of being like a great in this I'm feeling great like you know those thoughts do still kinda come in every once in a while. They're in the back of my mind like they have their little voices kind of knowing at me and I feel like that's kind of what I feel like this later. Part of my twenties has been like acknowledging those voices and telling them that they're wrong. Yeah sometimes for you. Sometimes it's like difficult you know. Sometimes I don't feel my best and I let those voices takeover and then I have a really bad day but I think that it's being aware of the things that you are unhappy with yourself about being like what can I change. Or what can I except for sure? That's that's so important because that's when I you know it's not all about sometimes. Life is really unique them getting very Meta. But it feels like it's a balance of acknowledging what you cannot control and like kind of surrendering to that and just be like you know what this is this is. I can't do anything about this. And then on the flip side also being like I have one hundred percent control or influence or choice in how this turns out and I think is always constant. Push pull of acknowledging what you have no control over like. You can't control what other people think of you. You can try and you can live that life always trying to please like the invisible. They the collective they and then see where that gets you and I've definitely tried that in spades or it's just kind of like choosing to say. Hey you do you. Whatever you think is what you think. I will choose to do whatever I can do. Kind of like fighting for yourself to like not. Let that disrupts. Would I think of me like that will not define me and It's tough and we live in an interdependent world. That's another topic. I Really WanNa talk about if this feeling of dependence and independence but like moving into this world of interdependence and bring lunch books because we need win. It's good to have other people like it takes a village and it. It's good to have other people to help you. And so I I there's so many facets play when it comes to body image of and like how we look at ourselves the mental health aspect but also the physical health aspect like I think when there were moments in my life especially in high school where I was in a really dark place and I just for a minute quote unquote gave up and I was like in rebellion because I always. I was already feeling so bad about myself. I was just like you know what screw all of you. Screw all of these beauty standards and I kind of went on this really unhealthy pass of leg eating whatever I wanted in terms of like just eating flaming hot cheetos dipped in Nacho cheese which is amazing but like it's delicious it was amazing and I would like some right now but that became my normal and like that with ice cream and there's something about my relationship with food to that switch that I think I was using as a defense mechanism or something cope because I was like screw. Your beauty standards. I will never live up to this. So I'm just GONNA I don't care if all of this goes to hell because whatever and my God yes prolonged like for real like in terms of a health issue. I I've had people in my world that have significant health issues because of what they eat and their diet and exercise and it's a lot it's a lot to deal with so like there are consequences to that mentality right so it's like one extreme to another. Oh yeah I mean I totally relate to the food thing like I've always loved food and I feel like that was kind of my safe haven if anything like a had a bad day at work. I'm like I'm going to go get shake shack right now. I'm going to get in and out like I just needed something to think. That was delicious and good and comforting. That would make me feel better but it never did make me feel better and so I feel like my relationship with food has always been that way where I'm like. I'm going to eat super healthy and by all these healthy foods and stuff my fridge with them. So that whenever I'm hungry only reach for those things and then you'd you know you're like Oh look I have all these like this. Galen broadly my fridge. Let me or her some pizza. I feel like that my relationship with food in like Middle School. I remember whenever my parents weren't home like my grandma would get McDonald's and I was like all this is like such a treaty. You know like getting junk food and that was like such a treat and I remember one of my best friends. Hated vegetables like hated any green vegetables as I was like. Ooh I don't like vegetables either but I think now as an adult like I think I still look at like fast food and those indulgences as like a treat but then if I'm having a bad day which can be several times a week like I can't be using that as a band aid you know right and like as I've grown up. I realized that. Oh actually I do a lot of vegetables and I do like cooking in like trying new recipes but it's also like that initiative of me wanting it because like I want to feed my body like what I love and so great. Yeah but like again. It's a huge struggle on days. Where like I just wanted. I'm craving a burger and I just want a Burger GonNa go get a burger you know. Yeah and I think that like it's like a weird kind of mental thing too. 'cause sometimes I'll be like oh it's okay. I'll get burger now and then I'll just work out afterwards but I feel terrible when I'm working afterwards because then it's like this heavy heavy meal like sitting in my stomach you know. Yeah and I feel like that's been something that I feel like has come up more so recently in the past couple of weeks again where things have been so busy like let me. Just grab something quick. Let me grab something. Quick owner should work out to work this off and then like feeling and I also haven't been as consistent with my workout schedule either so I feel like the past couple of times. I've done like spin classes. I like literally feel like death. Like lay down afterwards because I was like. Oh my gosh this is. This is really real. I'm like really struggling through this. And that's like worrisome. Like I'm not even thirty and in like little workouts like this is already affecting my health and so I feel like right now. My body image issues have kind of now like started to bleed into more of like health consciousness because they do have a couple of friends who work like really really high stress jobs and like that's given them high blood pressure in the past and we're not even thirty like that's a very very serious issue you know. People are having stomach ulcers and like all of these things that from my parents perspective. They're like that's unheard of when we were when we were your age and it is a societal thing where I feel like they promote like convenience over like health and as reading this article about because when I came back from spending two weeks in Europe over the summer in Paris with my cousin I had existential crisis where I was like. Oh my God. The French like really enjoy. They really know how they do. They really really do and I feel like I actually think that they're much better. Like work. Work Life Balance Than. We are sadly work life balance than we are like. I feel like families a huge priority. That's a topic for another day. What are the things that the article was talking about? Was that have you ever heard of soy land? It's cardboard are discussing but it's meant to be like a meal replacement right right and they were like asking. Can you imagine like the French creating a bottled meal? Replace it so that you can like work more and like worry about your health and not worry about your health and stuff like that like they prioritize like productivity. And like all this stuff over your health and they're like can you imagine the French coming up with something like that because that definitely sounds like something that Americans will come up with? The of certainty of that idea is I'm and this. People can have all of their own like pre preconceived notions about the French and they make fun of the French people all these things. But like in that regard I got to live in Perez a twice for each and like I really really respected that savouring of food and time and like the absurdity of that notion of a Soilih in France is the funniest thing that that's something to like look at because again coming back to the impact of culture. What are we valuing right? You're you're GONNA value compromising your hell's your sanity your design just like your physical health because it's very tied to mental health right like the clarity of your thought your sleeping habits and you're sleeping quality hours and like time with your family that you'll never get back. I mean these are real things. It's not like shit all over the US. I am very proud to be American. There's a lot of things that I think we excel at. And it's I'm very grateful to be in America. But like at some point there's like this unadulterated like this rampant capitalism and his rimet like marketing of everything and everything is a commodity including us as human. Everything is a quick fix. Yeah and everything has to be a quick fix. Yeah there are. There are consequences to that. It's not as simple like that's just the way we are like. Okay keep going that way. See how that goes. I mean even down to like getting Amazon packages in two days and now in La. They say that they're like now offering like one day shipping and like I remember like staying with my cousin and they have like a propane gas stove and I was like what happens when runs out. He's like you just deliver. You get another win delivered and I was like what but then what if you run out and you can't cook and they're like well then you figure it out and I was like what what it just things that to me at the time probably made me seem like Super American but seemed so impractical. But like any kind of like yeah again once again like hindering on like productivity but again. I think that we're all in America. Where like so focused on changing change and like all these things which is one of the reasons why our country has been so successful. But then it's like yeah like when. Is it time to just slow down and think about ourselves and not be chugging Soy Lenz for a collection dinner and like actually feeding ourselves like good healthy like Greens and Proteins? And the right carbs and stuff. So yeah. That's been a that you opening up this topic about like my relationship with food has also been like. Oh Yeah. That's that's address. I hope in a good way to support one hundred percent. I I definitely whenever I talk about like. I had an episode on first of all about fitness with autumn of. She's nutrition videos on youtube and she's someone like cold emails I can. I just pick your brain about intermittent fasting but like I definitely gone into that. Entire world of like obsessive fitness and hauls specifically for vanity reasons. Like I went into all that because I've been looking at weight loss stuff like I've been studying it and would love to have you back to talk more about all of these. I love what you're talking about the workouts because I think it's it's an important part of life just being active because we are very sedentary were always sitting on our devices a lot and not moving around as much as our bodies would like at what good it can do But Yeah I feel like I've approached this whole body from a when I was younger from very vanity standpoint of like. I need a look better. I don't look good enough. I need to be skinnier. I definitely was entertaining and saving up money to get tons of plastic surgery. That's another thing I got to talk about But like now like I'm grateful at least it got me into it because I was very lazy child and I wasn't really into sports either. I was not the most coordinated know. They're still not not but like I'm grateful that it brought me into that world because the science nerd in me now has been totally captivated about the true health benefits whether that's like mental clarity. And like how you know this kind of sleep like helps clarify your brain or like clears out the fluids and you're around your brain each night like that stuff fascinates the crap out of me so I've trying to like find more entryways into that maintenance of my body of my meccan mechanics. You know like the body that I have to embrace it for like what you're saying how incredible it is like. It's an amazing machine to take better care of it So I still definitely still care about the vanity stuff and like it goes hand in hand but it's not solely that anymore and I'm very grateful for that and I encouraged because we have so many resources at our disposal at this point just from Youtube and the Internet in general There's so many ways to like. Enjoy it and to research it and find the thing that actually speaks to you. Because it's not this one-size-fits-all But like it's a one-size-fits-all situation but our bodies are incredible and it. It is worthwhile like beginning preachy. But it's worthwhile to figure out how to keep it good health and in good condition and not just doing everything just because other people are doing it right. Everybody's obsessed with berries. If Barry's doesn't like you don't like berries you don't you don't you. Don't go very huge jerk like so critical of me with like finding my workout. Because I remember when I was younger I thought that running was like a huge. Like everybody's way of like I don't know working out so I go run on the track and I hated it and I remember one time. I went running with my roommates in College. And we did a lap around the block and they usually do like two to three after one. I was like yeah right. I'm good I'm going to head back now and that's when I realized like running is just not my thing but then I tried pilates and I really liked that. Have faster pace like yoga I really liked spin. And like that's like my form of cardio that I actually like so now I'm like holding onto that because I'm like okay. This is actually something. I chose through my identity crisis. I chose that I like and you know I don't care if some people say it's kind of like a cult. It can be kind of like a quick sometimes cycle but I think like I enjoy. I feel good afterwards and I think a lot of it is about like how you feel and anybody. Who's listening to our podcast knows like I'm obsessed with outdoor voices because that is what the CEO and founder like preaches. She's like you know you have all these like competitive like Nike Lululemon where you look at the images of the people that are like in their advertisements. And you're like oh I could never be that but like you know. They're always like showing like the number one athletes in the and like those are the people that they work with and she's like you know working out and kind of being active isn't about winning. It isn't about like Oh you know how far how fast you can run how heavy you can lift and all that stuff. It's literally just about getting your body moving right and it's and it's about like the endorphins that you get from it and it's even if it's just from a walk outside walking your dog like Light Jog. Whatever kind of movement means to you like that is what she wants her clothing to be four found that so inspirational because I was like yeah. I'm never going to be a top notch athlete. I don't look at the Olympia. That could be me one day like never you know even in like though what is it like the speed walking fast walking like I can never do that. But it's okay to not be that because you're you and you need to find the things that work well for you like. Yeah I think that kind of going back again to like clothing and stuff like that. When I was younger I used to buy closes like close like two sizes too small because Oh this is my ideal size as like who I would've Asian I will. I bought this and I'M GONNA fit in this exactly. Yeah but if anything like what that taught me was that most of the time I don't go to closer to the size. I usually go bigger that size and then I would feel even worse about myself and I feel like that was something that in New York I was like. I need to stop buying clothes. That don't fit me because it makes me feel bad about myself and there's nothing wrong with this is that I am you know like I just need to buy clothes that fit well and look good on me and that that exists out there right again learning what works well for you and like tweaking. The fashion industry tweaking. The you know what fitness industry into something that works for you and not. You're trying to fit yourself into what their expectations of you are. One hundred percent and that is always. I think it's so wise. Evita point that out because I think that part of the acceptance the journey of like really embracing and accepting and loving this body positive movement that people can have their judgments and they can have their stereotypes of like how. They're perceiving body positivity and there's a lot of arguments but I'm honestly glad that it's being talked about Because we're never done with it. So yeah let's have added this. Let's have a podcast talk about it and what I find ironic and very humorous about the whole like me. Accepting my body was is one Sharon anecdote that I got really into fitness world. I actually found that I enjoyed it. I'm not very graceful. Not Good at sports. I suck at remembering rules. You don't want me on your team for you. But when it came to like weight training when it came to like hit and like doing push ups I was actually not bad like from baseline. I wasn't as terrible as a thought and I had a boyfriend at the time who was training me and I and I got into it. And then he trained how to do it. I started doing by myself because I was like. Oh these are really quick and efficient. I also like quick efficient things I'll just do these like twelve to fifteen minute workouts by myself and I started actually Conversely I really never looked at myself as an athlete in any aspect of like. I'm the artist. I'm the Thespian. Like an eye. I will draw the athletes. I can't be one of them. I really kind of surprised myself at how finding the thing that I liked and why I liked 'cause he was efficient because it was like something that I didn't feel too clunky with doing like hand held weights. I was like Oh actually like this. My Body did change and I got a lot more athletic than I ever thought I would be. And so yeah. I think that kind of opened up a new portal to me and then finally ironic part is that I did lose weight but I got more muscular and so it was like this evolution of accepting my body for what it is that I can be more athletic than my body type might lean more athletic. You might not lose the weight that you thought you would in the way that you thought it would even reconcile like while I look really quote unquote fit. But like I don't look nice and close so like just figuring out where that all fits into the grand scheme of things and just learning how to enjoy because just laugh about it now still kind of mugsy because I was like damn it working so hard but like finding things like work for you that fit you go with your body type like go from there. I mean my. I'm just kind of also in my thirties now really accepting that my body's going to constantly change if I become a mother if I whatever like my body continues to like it's a very curious thing that I have it and I think having an open mind about where your body can even take you like once you start meddling with it like start experimenting with workouts or whatever healthy diets or whatever you want to incorporate it could really surprise you like doing. The intermittent fasting thing has made my life a lot better. Because I don't have to worry about breakfast and like I honestly have reaped good like weight loss benefits off that it's been a partial motivator but everything like there's so many ways that people approach this whether it's like the outside in inside out I'm personally approaching it both at this point healthy way of doing it. You know I get a little obsessive in my head and I'm like to still to vanity obsessed but but I think that's where we're all a lot more self self obsessed selfish than we would like to admit and I think that that's what I realized to where like. It's okay to admit that like I kind of wish this skirt. It better wish that that bump wasn't there and stuff like that like it's okay to acknowledge that But it's also like that awareness of it and like where that's coming from and why that is and I think that that's been my biggest thing. Am I acknowledging it because other people acknowledged it and not make like that makes me self conscious or am I the one who's truly about it where I and I don't know I mean this body? This body thing like I have noticed such big changes in my body over the past ten years like I remember when I was in high school I could eat a whole triple labor. Eatable no problem now and you have an full through dinner. You know then like it's acknowledging those changes and that's okay. There's nothing wrong with it. Like some people are just going to have fast metabolisms I have so I have. I remember when I was younger. I would always hold it against all in my head. I would hold it against them but like I had friends. Were like stick thin and eight way more than I did and I was like why. That's so unfair. Yeah that's just how our bodies are. Yeah so once you learn to accept that finding and find ways that like okay like maybe you know instead of indulging like once a week. I'll enjoy every other week or like all all. I have friends who are like. I eat super super healthy on the weekdays. And then I indulge on the weekends I find my balance and it's like setting rules like that work for you and yeah accepting your body for what it is is. It's IT'S GONNA. It's a lifelong journey. You know it's not something overnight. Some days I feel great some days I feel awful and again right like I too want to be a mother like my body is going to change so much and my mom even blames me to the stage like well. My body wasn't like this before you know and and that's okay but it's beautiful bodies are able to do and I think that that is kind of the biggest takeaway like focus on that you know and then through that you can find little habits and things that work for you that can make you just feel good about yourself. I think it's all about how you feel about yourself. I love it. Yes and before we wrap up and I hate to end this conversation because I could talk to you for days and days but no you have a very busy day Couple of questions. Well one I would love for you to share what you're working on now. Because I think it's really exciting. Definitely tied what we've been talking about. But secondly what you know now that you're entering this new phase of more appreciation like what are your tactics like what. How have you been loving yourself more? How would what would have you been doing? Is there anything that you recommend for someone who who feels or has been feeling similar to how you've been woo man I think definitely for me. It's like acknowledging my strengths. I think that I spent so much time. Focusing on the negatives and things that I can't do and I can't can't can't like mentality that like I was really hard on myself and I think that that's how it was when I first moved back to. La I lived in New York for little over four years then I moved back to l. a. and I went through this whole like. Oh my gosh I was doing so well and so motivated and excited about life and projects and stuff in New York and I moved back and I kind of reverted I moved home and I reverted a little bit back to my high school self and I like really hated myself for that and so I think that I was so hard on myself that after a couple months of that kind of self loathing like. I didn't even know what I was good at anymore. So I think it's just more so acknowledging like hey okay I'm good at this. I can't do this. I can't do that and slow league creating a routine for myself. Like I think that. I'm sure you relate to this as well as socially kind of working freelance in as an actress your schedule is different every single day. Right and like you're like oh they're eight hundred million things that I need to do. But if you don't actually prioritize and set goals for yourself and you know set kind of guideline you're never gonNa get anything done and I think that's always been my biggest struggle like not being able to actually like kind of follow through like I had all these ideas and all of these things but kind of tying into the identity crisis thing like I never knew what was really what I wanted or like what. I was actually trying to do so. I think that acknowledging hey I really enjoy talking to people and connecting with them and that is a strength like acknowledging that as a strength because I think a lot of the time we other things that come easy to us we just overlook and we're just kind of like Oh. Everybody can do that because I can do that. I think that really truly acknowledging like no this is a strength and I can use it in this way like that has been huge for me and I think that even talking to your friends about it like having them point out traits that they see the good that they see in you kind of what we were talking about earlier like the good that icy new like I think that helps you kind of like like not define but just kind of gives you a better idea of like Oh. I never knew that. That was something that was one of my strings. So I think that's been a really huge factor kind of tying into what I'm up to now which is starting my own clothing line. Yeah you are even the whole conversation that we had about fashion earlier like it boils my blood because I feel like that was what was the kind of the source of a lot of my insecurities of not being able to fit into. What other people's ideals were what? The beauty standard was and trying to fit myself into a size eight. When I'm really like a size ten to twelve or you know looking like having those numbers like seemingly define me and you know I know that for me. I think that when it comes to buying clothes I had such a hard time buying clothes like. It just doesn't fit right and I'm like I've realized that in the industry were also pitched this idea of what a woman should be and should be this party. A party girl. She should be this worldwide traveler. She should be this girl who has a lot of fun. And that's a lot of what like brands now are promoting and I think that the reality and I love that I fed into that like that was my so called like fantasy life like I would buy dresses and be like. I can't wait to wear this in Bali or beasts drinking whatever exactly like I created this fantasy and I bought clothes for that even though that wasn't really me and when I realized that like on the day to day like I didn't have close her work and the clothes that I did have a work I hated it because they didn't like the way how from be. It made me look but it covered covered. The cleavage was high neck enough. It was you know. Not Cropped Nazeer not too lacy not too much And then that made the clothes boring and so I think I started noticing that like a lot of Influence like they're like a handful of influencers that do focus on that more minimalistic like Sheikh kind of look. That's like more practical for work. And I think that that's kind of what I was like that to me. That spoke to me a lot because like I feel like I remember working at Cbs in a corporate office and feeling very like boss but then also like hating my clothes. Because like it didn't fit writer didn't look right and all that stuff so these two factors of just like you know close never fitting me right and women being fed this idea of like wearing short skirts and going out all the time but then like not having like a proper like nice blouse or like a pair of pants that are like work appropriate. But it's really driving me to kind of start this clothing. Line very cool. I love it and I feel you because I've done all of the above. I've been the but it's it's we're just we're having different conversations now and I feel like you're really you're paying attention Europe conversation. You're listening to what other women are talking about right. What are what are the pain points? And how can we be that solution and I love that? You're approaching this because you're incredibly stylish and you know you have you. Have you have an honoring of a woman's body that I think is part of fashion? It's not just product. Yeah it's yeah it's we live in it you know and they love it. The fashion industry is starting to you. Know kind of tinker around in that field just like you know like I remember stories of celebrities being. I was a size eight and so they didn't want address me now. They're actually like actively looking for plus size models and part of it you know I'm sure it's consumerism and just kind of going with the trends of now body positively being this trend but I do like like that. They're at least bringing light to it and the people are talking about it more. And hopefully that'll allow for more girls to feel accepted. 'cause I think both of us know how Shitty it feels when we're in middle school and confused there things coming out of our chests where leading once a month. There's there's a lot that I think that we go through that. In a way we even suppress like I think a lot of our generation like suppressed those memories but now. I think that it's really really. I love that we're bringing it to light and talking about it so openly So Yeah I love it. I love it and Willie Quick Sidebar. Because we're talking about bodies US brought up such an important point that I can't believe I didn't bring up because we have so many things to talk about but in terms of like what women go through on a monthly basis in terms of not even just like physical changes but the hormonal changes. And then how things just intensify and feel and feel out of control those are real real things you know. I. I don't. I'm actually really trying to strategize how to deal with my own feelings. When I'm in that that one week I do how a week where I just kind of fall apart a little bit. Yes and try trying to like hold accountable telling my telling my family and can she like. Don't let me make big decisions during this week. Because there's a chance higher. Risk that al. I don't fully mean I'm not. I'm not painting a picture because everybody's body's are different but I just know that like when I'm feeling that low it happens on a regular basis and that's something very difficult to cope with. It's not impossible to cope with. We all do cope with it. But I'm just wanted to make space to be like give everyone a frigging hug like all my women out there. I understand like an is. It is something that I cannot properly communicate to my mail brothers and my family that loves us but it's just something they don't experience and it is what it is but it's it can be really challenging so even like. I was just thinking I was like. Should you have like you know your period version of closed at like the the closer you are when you're like messing round appeared is different than when the week after like totally 'cause? I'm so bloated. I feel even worse about myself that I normally do extra irritable anybody who says anything to me I will be extra snappy. I totally agree with that and I feel like that. That's a great idea actually. Didn't even think about that but like our periods affect us so much and it's like not talked about enough. Yeah Yeah it's always like. Oh you must be PM. Saying I just won't bother you then like you deal with your your time of month and I'm I'm appreciative of that half the time because I was like. Yeah please do leave me alone. Go Way but like said in that way this. That's the conversation I think we need to have is just like don't disparage me for like my body experience. Something that I have no control over yes like I just bought pads today and I kind of patch twenty bucks and I was like a like I pink tax on my life literally that I have to spend just to like literally raise the uterus in me that I was like never even given the choice of whether or not I wanted to raise it like. It's just something I have to deal with and I feel like I mean this is also very interesting topic to me because I feel like it's so like I know that more people are talking about it now but like especially in the Asian culture like I feel like we just didn't talk about it. We're so hush hush and even then they're like oh just suck it up like Oh. You're cramps really that bad That whole conversation but offer another yet another topic for another day but included in in this topic of our bodies and be positive and embracing it and I don't think we're talking about getting into like la La land our bodies our machines to but we're doing the best we can take care of it To acknowledge it in a in a truly loving way nods beat ourselves up and seeing what where it can go from here. Really what more can you ask Regina your frigging incredible and you're an amazing soul.

Regina King on Race, Policing and HBO's 'Watchmen'

"Hey you're listening to, it's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders. And we'RE GONNA. Mix things up for this show. We're taking a much needed break this week, but we still want to leave something. Good. So. Instead of our usual wrap of the week's News, we're going to revisit my chat with Actress Regina, King from last year. Regina Kane has been in the business since she was thirteen way back in the day, you may recall her role as Brenda Jenkins on the classic NBC Sitcom to seven. After that, she just kept on working John, singleton movies like boys in the hood and Poetic Justice other movies like ray consistent. TV, work and voiceovers shows like the boondocks. McCain has stayed busy and kept making good stuff and now decades into her career. The Industry is giving Regina Cain the accolades many things she should have been receiving along. She won two Emmys for her work on the ABC, drama American Crime and twenty. Fifteen and twenty sixteen and last year. She won an Oscar for her performance in the Jenkins film if Bill Street could talk. And just last week Regina was nominated for an emmy for her work on HBO's watchmen. This is the show it's inspired by the graphic novel of the same name where superheroes and vigilantes are outlawed. This show deals with issues of race and policing a lot of things that we were talking about when this interview originally aired and we're talking about those things even more. So today. But with these topics, the show does this thing where flips traditional notions of race and class policing on its head to make its point. In. This Chat Regina and I talk about watchmen and why she gravitates towards work that consistently deals with racial bias and she tells me how she state centered and grounded when the Internet would have her be anything but. Anyway. We begin the interview at NPR. West Yeah back when we could be at the office and being the same studio together. What time? Regina was hunter her fallen off, and we talked about push notifications mostly. How much dislike them? I. Mean it's like Ding for things like pinterest. Exactly. What? They're all off and they've been all offer years. Yes. Yeah. You have to do. It's just like it'll suck you in. It feels like one. These things have short attention spans one hundred percent to there's just so much random stuff on the Internet to get sucked in. Get sucked in. I'm really trying to be better at looking at social media looking at your fee and not having a visceral reaction to something. I Have Not mastered it yet because they've managed to. Pop in like tweets or something instagram posts from things people, you don't follow you and thank you should not care about did not care about or that I get in my feelings like. Why is there etional? No Pancake? Day. Why. Are we doing? Why are we doing this? Why? Why? Why are we doing this? But then you've also Google National Cake Day. What's the most popular? Yes. pancakes come from and then on the flip side I understand national. Tequila Day. So what does that about me? thinking. Big Picture about that. This internet media landscape. Is it harder as someone who makes TV or movies? To get the attention, you want these days because when you're making two two seven back in the day, you one of a handful of networks. They got a good time slot. You are watched. Yes, and now you are not just putting TV on the TV. You're putting TV into the Internet world's full of distraction and you are trying to be someone's International Pancake Day Jackie I'm trying to be number one trending thing. Yes. Yes. Yeah. It is difficult and it's difficult to be okay in my spirit about that. You know that that's that's the thing that I find myself You know that's the tug within me like I feel like, yes, I need to understand that we are in a different day and age. This is the time where social media is what you use to. Promote your project or a cause or whatever. But the reality is I'm not really consistent, and what I do notice is you know you have to be on their. Feeding it so that you can break through off National Pancake Day and everything else. Yeah. You know. But also it's like you are an actress I and I'm guessing you want to spend more time on the craft than yet, but I got gotTa tell you. I'm so impressed with those artists that are able to be on there like all the time in posting every single day several times a day managed to be really great at their craft I. Don't think I'll ever be good at that in what I will say is I'm okay with that. I have gotten to that. That I'm okay. But you know what you do have. Yeah. Skirt. So. Like there is also this kind of thing we're like. It is interesting to see. You in this moment, making the stuff that you're making because as someone who's been a fan of been watching you for a while it feels like something in the last two, three, four years you are functioning in your careers functioning like on all cylinders Does it feel it? Feels, it does feel that way I feel like they're they're of experiences have taken place to lead to this moment as with anyone's life. But I think I've been very good at Learning from my mistakes, you know not Repeating them. a growing from my mistakes or or just circumstances that have taken place. And I do feel like I, move with more confidence. Now, you know and especially in the past you know seven eight years. I think being a mother had a lot to do with Getting me to that space without actually thinking about it without timelessly. Because? I. Have another life been responsible for. N. That's like the number one priority and and the reality of because I'm my son is an only child. Okay. So the reality that not only is he an only child I'm an only mom I'm. So I'm learning justice, he were growing together and growing together in learning. Through his is. allowed. Me To think in. A more selfless way or also you have less time to get caught up with the pet with. Yeah. Exactly. In in thinking of like gain that confidence being a little better, just being you in this world in your craft. It almost feels like you would not have been ready for a role like the watchmen a few years ago. I wouldn't have been ready for a lot of things. You know like a lot of people ask me. First of all I believe that I love the saying that a we make plans in God lash. There, they. Get. True. And netflix comedy special. Telling you. Yes. And thank God, you can look at it. Thank you guys. You know. I'll have people ask me you know. Do you feel like? You were you should have been recognized here should have been recognized there, and when I think about that, I think about would I have? Let's just take the Oscar. For instance, would I have received it the way I received now like now it's. I think. May Have happened years ago. It I probably would have received it like, okay. I've done it on now. You know now what whereas now I know that that is so even kind of close to the tip of the iceberg while it is a. Wonderful feather in your cap. It's seeing it as okay. This is great currency. For the next. Yeah. Yeah, and you know for me, that was happening while I was shooting watchmen a really. Working. So, so I was. Prepared at this time of my life to be able to be doing. All of that, I want at once which I don't know. that. If that would not, they wouldn't have been the case earlier earlier on know what gives you the core emotionally. Jesus is what is. This Jesus. Yes. It is my spiritual base, my foundation, and that came from my mother. Okay. You know that's I. Mean. It's really as simple as that. When you are in the womb and you have just everything surrounding. You is spiritually into. Okay. You know. My mother, my grandmother. Okay. My. It's just in the DNA. DNA. Time for a break.

It's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders. This week on the show, we are revisiting my chat with Actress Regina King From Twenty Nine, thousand nine we spoke about her late show watchman on HBO. Last week. We all found out that Regina Cain up for an emmy for her performance on that show Congrats Regina. So the show. Watchmen give me your elevator pitch in thirty seconds and I'll come. First of all, this is an elevator pitch if you're on a local elevator in the empire state building. So it is a show that comes from source material comic. Comic Books, it uses the source material as if it's the Bible, it is the Bible of this alternate universe, and in this alternate universe we have picked up for those who are fans of the book. We've picked up thirty years from when that book Okay, and we are while like that book dealt with the threat of Cold War. In this story, our biggest fear is. Racism and policing. Sounds like my life. Yes. You know and I mean, I thought that was so smart for Damon to choose as that backdrop imminent fear. Also. The show is like a Gumbo of genres. So you have. Fi you have romance. You have humor You have real historic events that will be happening. Open is the Tulsa race riot. Yes. Given history to. Yes. And that's one of the things that I thought when I first read the script out. Mike Oh. My God. Your character in this show I want to describe it accurately you in this layer. So the character. Known character is a former police officer. I? Think we can say the she's a police officer, but she is operating on the cover as police officer because a certain series of events have taken place that has led the police department in Tulsa to. Police in a way that their identities are hidden so that you all these officer wearing masks. Yes. On patrol patrol. Already. And then the detectives their uniform if you will is individual to ev not one detectives whereas whereas the same thing So Angela a bar is who I play to me, she kind of represents all of us. In the way I say that. Because in the first episode. You get to see three different masks, Ya. Know, and that's of how we move in real life. You know who we are at the family reunion is different than who we are at home with the immediate family et then who we are at work. You know. So we're always constantly. Changing masks and sometimes we get confused on which one we should have on us. Through Angela, we kind of explore all of that. Through Angela through story. So this show that is asking us to grapple with the questions about policing, but in way where everything's flipped on its head, the racial hierarchy seemed to David be flipped relationship between cops and civilians seems to be flipped. When you think about using a show like that to get it these big central questions of American Life. Does it work better or differently than show that has perhaps more. What we see every day, you've done other shows about raising policing that seem specifically of this moment. From our lives. This is a show with questions about policing and crime and race, but it is set in the world that feels very much. Not This Swan. How do you think about the way that those shows make us ask those questions or answer them when one is that in this world and one is not right. That's a great question because I'm just thinking about just myself as an audience member that I do feel like I receive things that are provocative or that makes me WanNa talk about them later. When? There's humor involved. So I guess this is very similar in that way. Like for example I saw a slave play. Okay, we. Need, I've been hearing. May Look. That's a perfect example of what you know I'm talking about. The. And similar to watchmen in a way. The like I don't no one knows they're going in not knowing what to expect. I don't want people to I don't WanNa say, I, hope that you feel this, I, want you to walk out of there or come off your couch. Take it in and just be honest about what you feel. You know and and that's really. The best we can do as an artist. You know having the opportunity to contribute to a conversation to force the viewer to be honest about what they're feeling. Yes. Yeah. A theme in your recent work that I've noticed. You deal with notions of the police state and crime and race and policing I'm guessing you taking rolls over time that speak to that is not by accident. I don't think that they I. This is GonNa Sound crazy soon, I don't feel like I'm actively looking for these stories. But I will say that if the story moves me. Then, it moves me and feels like is rooted in truth. Even if it's a comedy, then I'm attracted to it. I will say because I have been on this earth for forty eight years and so much of that is part of my experience and being black in America. subconsciously and consciously. ATTRACTED TO I can't help it. You know. So it's it's not that I'm. Out there like only sin me these projects is like you know five or six things hit my desk and that'll just be the one that my heart says. Yeah. Yeah we'll edit also feels like we're in this moment wear. The real world cannot figure out race and policing. We can't figure out. Politician can't figuring out. Producer temporary it out, and like sometimes it feels like the only way to actively work through this stuff. is through the creative arts, a one hundred percent. And also, I think reason why can't figure it out is because if you're trying to revise the past if you're actively not trying to learn about the past or differences than we're never going to get to a space where we have enough people that can be solution base and and I say that to say that it's not just only a white people. You. Know have a reckoning is black people understanding that this is the case. So. How do we move in a way? It's solution based to help that reckoning jet come sooner. Yeah. It's it's. It's. It's the question between. Allowing yourself to be angry all the time we're allowing yourself to be solution based in those sometimes that goes together. But oftentimes two different things. And often times in. We have a lot to be anger for good reason. But how does my anger service Alicia and that's the biggest thing right there. It's like when you come to the table. With differences. The first thing you have to do is understand that we both have anger and pain. Yes, and we both feel righteous in the. NFL. Angry in pain. Yes. So how can we converse or? I. Keep using the Word Solution Base because we've been talking for a long time. So. You know. How do we get to a place where we have forward movement in not lateral movement? without triggering the anger in the pain and make in letting that speak for us. Exactly. And when I say this, I'm saying it because I am working at it as well. You know this is something that I think we're all working through and I think for so many people. It's terrifying to consider coming to the table and being honest about how you feel that's terrifying. No matter what you look like it is, and how can we do that with respect? That's the hardest part. It's hard because it's hard to sometimes WANNA respect. Someone, that seems to be refusing who you are. Yes. You're person. Yeah. Our time for another break. When we come back more from my twenty chat with Regina. CAIN. She told me the thing wants folks to take from her roles is that she is proud to be an American. And even though this chat is from last year, the problems at least on race and policing. They haven't changed be. This message comes from NPR sponsor ancestry.

Black voters play a pivotal role for any Democrat who wants to win the White House, but there's some big divides amongst that block and some evidence that could determine who is elected president this November. That's next week on coats which. When it comes to your work that deals with race and crime and policing, and race relations in America. What do you hope folks that have followed your body of work on? That subject. Take from seeing you in those roles over the last several years. This is gonNA, sound cheesy, but I guess. Overall. I'm grateful to. Be. American. You know. I. I truly. AM The because I am is the reason why I G-. I guess I'm gravitating to these stories and I hope that through As difficult as it is that you can still find. Provide, even with all the ugliness that comes with the history of America, you know this that that's a I i. kind of feel in a lot of ways not to pat myself bag. But that's very brave to say that I'm proud to be an American. Especially right now, you know what I mean and part of me being proud is because I do recognize how ugly. America. can be and has been and still is in some way and still. Yeah. But. Also, a person that finds the beauty in the bruises. Just feel like I can't love me and not be grateful. For. All this brought. ME. To be right here. So that sounds like really granola and I get it, but it's I get. A part of loving America and people will say this when they're protesting about things. America's doing part of loving. Your countries wanted it to be better. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Your child. Loving your parents are. Having, a child is not never say to them. You did this thing. Wrong. Better Eleven your child is saying I want to help you be the best you can be. Exactly, and so like you can do the same thing with their country and it is it is. It is. I. Think is particularly vital to see those conversations happening work like yours because in so many other spheres of public life. That candidate is just not happening and noisy righteous feels annoy right now. Yes. You know that's I. You know when we were first talking, we're talking about. Comes up at the thing that the noise just makes you so anxious. Yes. which is why it's. It's. It's. It's. Weird as it sounds, it is refreshing to watch this dystopia and show of yours. Because it allows me freedom from that and I can just focus on a story that is GonNa make me ask some bigger question questions. Yeah. Yes One. Hundred percent because going back to talking about trying to. Ask questions and have. A discussion and not lead with pain. Win with a show like watchmen I. Think it. It can. Take some of that. Von This Hour S. Yeah. It is. It is an interesting time to see art about this hard stuff happened because I think like if not happening there as I happen to anywhere else, unfortunately. Rouse. Anyway. Officially. How long have you been in the business? You started to do seven you what thirteen thirteen shot the pilot thirteen. So is a what we not gonNA acting school and doing plays and things like that. Prior to that. So I'll be forty nine. Ohka. In January and your birthday marks the last day of the year. Okay. So it's been. Yeah. Thirty six, thirty, six years. Yeah. When did you know that you wanted to do this? probably in college, you know what you were doing it. It to be a dentist. I got you on to two, seven, thirteen I was I was always a fan of the arts so. The thing like living in La is while our one of our biggest. Export is Hollywood It's still not as as far as the in all of the arts. It's not like New, York. In that sense that it's you know just bubbling with, you know all different types of art. But my mother being a teacher when ever anything came to L. A. You know. We are going Earth Kit came Timbuktu. We're going, Alvin? Ailey. Dance, theater, of Harlem. In town we were going. So you know she started that excitement very early on. What of your work is she enjoyed the most. Oh Gosh. That would probably be a question that you have to ask her. But I think there is a certain amount of pride that probably came along with Bill Street because it was James Baldwin's were and it just who James Baldwin is and what he means to us as Americans and I say as Americans I think is very important to. Say? that. I think it holds a special place in her heart, I love it. Thanks again to actress Regina Kaine last week was a different Emmy for her work on HBO's. Watchmen. Right listeners.

S4 EP123 Bringing calm to the chaos with Regina Gulbinas - Your reality check with Rob

"Welcome to the PODCAST. This is your reality. Check with me rob. Ross and of Got Regina. I'm Regina I'm GonNa let you side Salad on box. Play NEXT REGINA. Gobain us with me on the show. I always get tripped that soon. I'm Regina's I previous guest of mine. And she's a business expert and in this crazy crazy talk of pandemic. I'll just wanted to bring her on to bring a bit of calm to the kiosks and a bit of sense and reason and a little bit of a measured thought in a measured approach to actually what's happening in the world right now so. I think you lock what she's got to. Cite Regina welcome to the show. How I tonight thank you. I am a great time trying to navigate like everybody else trying to help as many people as I can. And thank you for inviting me. This was a pleasant surprise so I'm glad to be here again while a really enjoyed al conversation loss time and I enjoyed the the depth of passion that you have for the work that you do and no doubt it must be very hard to watch your clients and your friends and the people that you've worked with for many years suffering in this talk of a pandemic so I wanted to talk about that before we get into that if the people that are listening and watching these are no who you walk in you just give a quick little background absolutely. I've been alive from business. Strategists for almost almost twenty years at this point them in eighteen years to be more exact I primarily for for the most of the time of my career focused on reorganizing failing companies of work with over a hundred businesses. Well her probably sixty five seventy chapter. Eleven cases I'm not an attorney but I help people reorganize through the process and now I've shifted my focus to help people groin and scale correctly. I've seen how much chaos financial devastation causes to family to a business. So I WANNA help them before they get to that point so I still handle Critical environments within the company. But I'm also adding to the mix helping businesses that just help them grow correctly. That's really it. So that's that's where I'm at for an Australian SEDAKA on a couple of podcasts. It'll be in doing. It'll be doing a daily podcast in Youtube video so sure if you will watching this subscribe button and just scored on down and subscribe as well to watch youtube. Because we got lots of Great People at Regina Ron and lots of content and keeping you updated with the The pandemic as applies out as it relates to business mostly as well said a couple of times on a few of these podcasts. Now that I'm wild. This is what I panic. And all things being equal be loss pandemic experience Of of seen it before of seen rapid shifts in rapid changes in markets before where it's really impacted on a business in the half the move now and Mike quick decisions now or they're going to get left with pants down and things can go wrong really quickly. What are you seeing happening with your clients and the people that you work within this time? It's a state of flux. What he's saying happening while unfortunately what happens at any state of chaos people get paralyzed by fear. You know just like your personal life. Businesses no different because pup- businesses are run by people just like you and I on a daily basis so when we hit a state of fear when business owners hit a state of fear day. Start to make decisions. That are very emotional. That are fear based emotional. And Look. Whether it's your personal lives or your business. I'm sure we can all relate whether you run a business before not when we need decisions from a emotional point of view from an emotional perspective we just create more of a mess so for me the biggest thing right now with the companies that I work with because I work with nationwide work with larger companies with the Companies. I work with is really keeping the CEO. focused on the moment focused in the right now and get them the flat pole so to speak not lead them get too far in their head. And just say okay. This is what we gotta do today. Let's stay focus and this is how we're GonNa do this a day at a time. Because that's all you can do in a in a crazy environment like this data time survival. Not That's Alytus in in times of crisis. That's the way to look at it. Isn't that you know you've got plans. You've got ideas and opportunities that you've been working towards and Mike it happened. What are some of the? What is something that maybe one or two things? If people are listening or watching this can I do if they plan is completely out the window and they've got a whole bunch of anxiety around that and I don't know what to do? What are some things that they can do to feel like they back in control? Will maybe get back control of what's going. On first and foremost you either have to know how to navigate through your own chaos and fear. Can you still push through and make logical reasonable profitable decisions from a place of fear and chaos if the answer is no? I suggest you get somebody who can help you and other voice next to you. I know people kind of put it on the back burner but the fact is unless you're thinking clearly in a chaotic environment. You can't you're not gonNA make good decisions. This is kind of war going into battle right. You have to be clear headed otherwise you're going to pull the trigger and killed the wrong guy businesses. No different you have to be crystal clear. You have to be very precise and you have to really aimed for the target. You can't do that if you're shaking your hands like it doesn't happen so if you cannot if you don't have enough. I think self composure to navigate through fear and it takes a lot of years. I think of experience to train yourself dealing with fear. Get somebody who can help you like. Don't try to save money and get somebody who can walk you through it and focus on the moment and this is important because people business owners in people. In general we dimension Jump Weiner had boy into the future come back into today with a horrible story and function now as if we're there and it creates so my biggest advice says push through fear push through cast make logical decisions make decisions that are. GonNa make humans if you save right now. Don't worry about your cashless six months from now because if you don't secure now six months from now is not going to matter at all pseudo. Now focus on the now and another thing that I'm having my clients to shore up all of your relationships I've having I'm having one of my clients right now. They're a nationwide trucking company. They do big cargo. I told them you know. Trucking there is it's it's taken a massive hit because there is no shipments this and that and I told them you personally get on the phone with every single customer. You represent calmness. Your represent peace of mind. You represent clarity. You tell them. We're not going anywhere we've got their back you call all the brokers you call the customers and they wanted to do an email said no voice on the phone very organic. You see all of these things. I'm having them. Do People think it's not really money producing sedate? The truth is money is made in the ten things. I'm telling them to do because now they've given the peace of mind to the people that trust them with their product would their service so they're thinking dot Com. I'm GONNA continue giving my business to them. That does make money so get out of your way. Get Out of your head. Make logical decisions. If you can't get somebody who can help you do that. And make your clients still saved because you need those clients that you can continue making money? Beautifully said beautifully said the Voice of reason communist wrought on the PODCAST I. That's beautifully articulated. Regina thank you that I would add that the one kind of simple version that all us for myself and it's not just in terms of business chaos but it's just a mile off in general is a lot to focus on the what is instead of the what ifs. There's nothing wrong with playing what? If and that's what makes us human is your ability to project into the future and learn the lessons of the past and create a better future for yourself but it can also create huge amounts of anxiety for you as well because if I see an unknown situation about what's going to happen what it what. If this goes wrong you send yourself around the bend so I would add to what you've said. They were concentrating on. What is an that stops all the anxiety? And that's that's the way I WANNA get myself out of my head as well and I love what you said about calling people of done that quite a bit in the last couple of days. Actually that's worked incredibly well absolutely. I do want to add something that the woods going on. It's on a global scale and if we as business owners do not learn from Dis someone. Something else will happen in something else will happen. We're going to be in the same situation. So why are most businesses closing doors right now because the main reason is they don't have the cash flow to support themselves even for five minutes if the business goes away so what is the lesson? Have Money in the bank and I always find. We even fight with my clients. Don't grow too fast. Are you looking to make a million dollars or or are you looking at a bigger profit? Listen I have worked with companies that are millions of dollars upside down on their depositing. Twenty million dollars a year and they're running a constant negative. I have worked with companies. That are half a million. And they're putting one hundred thousand free and clear into their bank accounts so I what focusing on more sales or more profit so people need to learn the lessons. Companies are cash for companies are cash. They don't have the cash being bottom line. So that's why most companies that are gonNA water. Business are willing to go out of business right. They can't sustain themselves in their employees for a month or two or three just like in a personalized when you have a savings three four five six months in advance businesses. No difference so I do urge the customers. At least that have direct access still wants. This is over once we outlive that your past decisions because now we have to outlive the decisions you made in the past. Then I'm GONNA help you make different decisions. And whenever happens whenever something happens? You better believe we're GONNA have cash in the bank because now I'm babysitting the process so I urge everybody to learn from this. This is important. What's happening and why why things happening the way they are. One of the things that are noticed in fifteen or use a digital marketing is never really encounter. A business that That has good shop front and employees and products and services so they're selling to consumers face to face a rarely find that businesses like that have it doubting properly and if it business has they online shopping and all of that square to why they really have an offline version but squared away as well. It's either one or the other. It's never they never perfect. And then never equal like that and what I would say at this time right now in this state of flocks. Now's the time to get your online doubt in your online to get your marketing rot just once and for all get that done once and for all build your automation. Build your funnels. Buji traffic all of those things once and for all so at least you can continue to try it if the food traffic is gonNA. Why if a lockdown goes for an extended period of time while the foot traffic has just gone because businesses changed the way that it actually works on is where it's going to the new normal for now is social distancing and doesn't mean because we don't see each other physically that student bought products and services and don't want that's things on just going to buy them online and if you'll not online propaganda competitors off and it's interesting what you said that people right now is the time where people should sure everything up price so p during times like this people retrieve pupil pull out. I'm more of a mindset. You press in because if you look at history Stoorikhel evidence dictates that those people that survive discuss catastrophes do dominate the market. Because everybody else either falls off because they don't have the cash flow to sustain it or they run away. They dropped the ball and run away because they're afraid right so as I told one of my clients a couple of weeks ago. Listen if we pushed through this guy's dominate the market because everybody in their industry is really falling off when things because they pick up fast. And there's nobody nobody to help the customer and it's going to be us so I agree with what you're saying. This is when you you've got enough time right now. This is when you sure things up and you are right. People only people either have this going or this going like they don't. They don't have a consistent stable system usually in any of the businesses. It's it's very rare where everything functions like a will will machine because they only pay attention to what's broken and they forget to maintain with work swell and you have to maintain a real what you said when it turns around and will turn back around. I heard an analogy Was I think it was actually the Prime Minister? You're in Australia. That said it right at the outset. I were talking about the economic impact of this thing. And of course we didn't know what we didn't know three weeks ago when he when he said it but but I remember recall. He said it's not gonNA be locking upside down bell curve where everything falls off the cliff and then for an extended period of time goes skype along the bottom and and take back off it. It's more more the the downturn is Avi we come down really shop and really rapidly and then we get through it really quickly and then we've back to where we were really quickly lot that as well and in that crash because we go down so fast and so hard people crash at the bottom there and they end up stay there inevitably and if you've if you've got almost first to market mover advantage in these opportunities when the market went to chew his comeback when the market comes back that opportunities is just wrought for the peaking nave for you as well and are not made not in a bad. Why don't may not at the expense of businesses will people that have filed? But that's just the reality your chances of major success. Ah better than any time in history in the in the twentieth century for sure. That's where I agree. I agree because it's such a quick fall about it. It will spike because In US right now. It's like somebody turned the country off. People said you can go to work or you can't do this justice quickly. They're going to get back to work. So within twenty four hours a million businesses are gonNA open right. It's GonNa be a spikes to whoever is left behind his left behind and everybody who was being busy during this time is gonNA is GonNa really pick up a lot of the sh the lion's share of the market but is also when you pimm. It's a for example. I work with bigger bigger companies. Right so I understand that. I can also help a lot of the smaller guys right now. By creating very cheap digital mini courses and trainings because it sells on volume. So I'm all about it. I'm cranking out fifty dollar products. Sixty seventy because it sells in volume and I'm okay with that like it doesn't hit my ego that I have to go from. Thousands of church charging a thousand per client or charging a fifty offer digital product. I'm all about what I'm teaching. Bryce TEACHING PEOPLE GAMING THE VALUE. So everybody out there. There's always something to sell and people are buying like crazy because now they're home. They WANNA pivot their income. They're looking for ways to learn to buy two for waste. Learn to make money online. This is unfortunately sadly but it's a golden opportunity for for a lot of people that are going to get an IT's ass. No nothing bad comes of it all because those people that do jump into those things and get started with that on the other side of it I have an income online which is a real thing for one of the One of the reasons that I wanted to bring you on the show today retainer and have this conversation with you is because I know that you work with and have worked in the past with businesses that have been in distress and you mentioned before the top of the show with a bunch of chapter eleven and when those things happen. The leaders of the organizations have to make hard decisions about sending people on leave without pie sending them on long service. Leave even notes already. They don't ready for that and I might have been saving that for something else. Will they have to let people go and I just wanted to get your thoughts and opinions around making hard decisions in these really unprecedented lawns? Really and what can lead is due to be the blow in cushion that a little bit for the people that have to do with because it's hard for everybody. It's hard for the latest and it's hard to the people on the receiving end of it as well. You know for the leaders. It is extremely difficult. I've seen grown men literally cry over having to let employees go that have invested their life since of their business. So it's it's extremely difficult. Listen I'm a tough cookie enough cried when I had to let people go. It's devastating but then you make a decision. Do I save two three families or do I say go to families? Because I'm saying one employee whole family depends on the teacher or do I let the whole company Tink that. That's supporting three hundred still. I mean these are hard decisions that you're dealing with people's lives. These are incredibly difficult decisions. But I also have to tell you. I've noticed a lot of times when you let people go somehow somewhere another those people end up being better off. They find a better job. Something more suitable because you start to look who's the better fit for the company right because that's kind of that's when you start to weed people out but as leaders we have to make difficult decisions we as the head of the household. You have to make a difficult decision every single day. Right finances kids spouse whatever whatever that means for you so it is. It's very hard It is very difficult when I have to tell the leader of that. We have to carry this and that but also it's A. It's a learning opportu teaching opportunity for me because with the business owners don't realize is when they have to file a chapter eleven when they have to go out of business. This is nothing but a trail of decisions that they need. Along the way right and the only way that I can reorganize the company if I can reorganize the thinking process of a business owner because if I helped reorganize leave and nothing you're changed. They're gonNA fail again because they've learned nothing they're just go back to making their normal decisions and their decision says will God them in trouble in the first. So reorganizing is a massive concept. But first foremost we work with people. My job is to reorganize did the CEO but these decisions are hard. They're hard but keep in mind also but at times. A business owner has filed. They've really put their whole family and the line. They've depleted older savings. They've taken the money out of the house. There is so much goes on that employees don't know and ultimately my job is to save the company and the family of the CEO because the CEO is the brain behind the whole operation right because the CEO goes down not know employers have work so you save the ASS said they asset is the CEO you save the asset and then you sure everybody also your if you end up being a leader in that position please make sure you look after yourself as well they. They're very trying times. My Sri Sleeping Roy. Make sure you're not drinking coffee alcohol all the craziness that goes on with that now more than ever. I is really really important that you look off your health. If you're in a leadership position like that what would you say the me here in here in Sydney in Australia what I'm seeing going on with the conversations that I'm having on a daily basis and I'm recording two or three they die and also I'm talking to clients and customers are GonNa Bunch of things happening on I'm busier than ever surprisingly Which is kind of comical. It's fun I'm really enjoying what I'm doing. And what I'm seeing. Shakeout is the new normal social distancing really. That's that's what it is and hopefully we don't get locked down here in Australia that they've said so far that that's actually not going to happen. I do know that it happened in the UK overnight Happening to you guys as well so far so good heater in Australia. That hasn't needed to happen But what what are you seeing as the future of this region? And what's your gut tell you what you feeling. This is a nod the first disaster of the universe so historic. Alexa said historical evidence dictates that things happen The difference between this time versus mini other times. This is like a this is a global scale ride. This is not just the country at a time. This is not a state at a time. This is not a continent of time. This is Global. So this is massive this massive. But look we're not we're GONNA to push through it but I think economically like Alfred for the United States. It's going to leave. Maybe it'll take us a week or two or three to get back to work but it's going to leave years and years and years of financial chaos and devastation because it now here's a massive domino effect because people cannot be for rent business owners cannot pay feren therefore they can't pay the mortgages on the properties are two buildings the being out of money. So it's a massive excel. I think we're going to be back in action sooner than people think but the cleanup process is going to take. I would be surprised if not the seven to ten years. I mean this is massive devastation. Think about it. Most businesses are literally out of business. And for this whole week. Everything has been closed. I which goes on for a couple of months then what people can't afford to go for a for a week or two because they don't have the cash reserves either personally families or businesses so it's a massive. It's like a wildfire it's gonNA spreading like while parts and people are getting my concern. Is that the People. Don't get too aggressive right. Why PEOPLE GET SCARED? People get aggressive. I'm hearing people are starting to load up on guns and things like that and guns in the hands of stupid people is a horrible idea it. It's it's getting out of control. That's the fear. That's that's the concern. It can eat Guinness things like this. It's like a it's like catching fire. It it gets out of hand and you can't catch it at some point unless it you just have to let it burn out and I believe that we're in that state right now and it's going fast. It's spreading fast. I'm sitting here has conversations. I'm having with people. Is My inbox before and there was probably ten ten messages there from people. I haven't heard of all ages and Someone who I think it was three or four of them were clients and other people were just people that are no just other business owners and add fuel somme. Lock something that happens a little bit of a shift towards some collapse Youtube is a famous collaborations. On what my channel to blow up so I'm going to try and get a lab with that. Go out there and I feel like that's happening. He Voyage Zoom in Australia as well. And I think that that's going to happen. Throughout world where businesses operate in isolation anymore they the not for the foreseeable future upright in a firefight capacity. So it's all GonNa come on law and the activities are gonNA come online. But you can't really GonNa win the business by yourself because you need someone to help you. Open the door to get in there and the only way you can do that with collapse. All of that networking and that type of thing has just travel. But I think this is a new beginning for all of that. This is one of the new I. Business Collaboration online via video platforms. Like we're doing right now. I agree I agree. Yeah it's it's. It's forcing people to play Nice. It's forcing people to come together. It's teaching us to. It's teaching us that we need one another so good things are coming out. But I can't say but I think because there's so much bad happening is so much fear Good yet and understand because I feel like the entire contents. Our world is is in survival mode at this point and when you get into survival mode when I get to survival survival I get really tied narrow vision and like a military so so I think a lot of people can't see past that right now but we will at someone like anything else will. Yeah we'll get. We'll get pasta. What about from a personal perspective? Regina your family okay. What about your kids at home? They're driving you crazy now. My kids are actually older. They tried to me crazy with differently. I have a I have a daughter. That's almost sixteen. Teenagers Drive you crazy with her school or not and I have one. That's when you three. That's a different type of crazy. Not as bad anymore so she's grown but the sixteen year old. They're they're healthy under saved they're out of school She can't wait to get back to school. That's that's a day. I never thought would come. You know she hated. Who's get are you and I guess more cure complaining? They want to go back to school and they never thought they would say then. We experienced never thought it would help. And so A thing got okay. My only job right now is to really keep my keep my clients. Same keep them focused and keep them pushing a a minute by minute because everybody's getting affected everybody's getting on my side would would work so my job right now is to make sure. I'm okay stood that I can make sure they can for that. I Meditate I journal. I study my Bible that I'm good so I can hold them up that that's what I'm doing. What about from a practical perspective can you? Can you go outside and got the shops? If you get a loaf of bread or milk or something on that show yeah. We can but a lot of autumn if you if you if you guys are seeing it and then use them. Sure you're seeing it on facebook. A lot of the shelves are empty. It's it's insane. I went to buy eggs. They said I can only buy one. Pack of Ed's I never thought that would hear that in the United States. Listen I come from Russia a socialist regime but I feel I come back there. I've been here for thirty years but I know what empty shelves look like so now in my Russian community. You know we're kind of laughing about we escaped and now it's here but the lies are out the door. You can buy certain assesses but it's causing because people are buying in bulk. They're literally clearing stores in the toilet. Paper is ridiculous. It's really being but it creates a problem for the elderly because they can buy in bulk. They can't buy twenty gallons of milk between love bread. They can only by someone get there. It's not there so I think some of the stores which I really love and respect for. They started to open their stores. Just I think for like senior citizen the only lead them in for a certain time so they can buy what they need so I love that. Were trying as a community to do that. Sounds similar experience here as well. They got between seven in the morning for the oldies with a senior's card. You can go in there and and do that Luckily our shelves a reasonably well stocked. Whenever I've been inside guy is toilet paper issue Pandemic preparation finished six weeks. Ago has plenty of stuff before it all went before it all went sideways Irwin South. That's pretty good.

Bonus Episode: Regina George Q&A

"They. Questions that you all sent over about the Regina, George. So that was released a few days ago. I time we did this which was last Tuesday Email questions and voicemail questions. This time. We picked only the voicemail questions because it makes me feel more. Like, I'm talking to actual people and less like I'm sitting in an office by myself talking until microphone like an idiot. Let's start it. This one from New York, I just wanted to know which member would you most likely date in high school, so who high school should they and why is it crested wieners? All right. Hang up the phone the same on the air. Hang up the phone. Oh shit. We got a one calling. This might be the first time in history that a one has ever called into a podcast acid question. It's definitely the first time in history that a one has ever called into a podcast to talk about Mingas. We should fuck. And celebrate CARA. Can you do a sound effect here? That's like a bunch of applause or like fireworks going off. What listen there's no way that any of the plastics would've ever dated me in high school. It's hard for me to explain to. You exactly how dorky I was during that time of my life. I had a gigantic head. I had a tiny body. I had teeth that looked like they were in the middle of a fucking neighborhood streetfight. It was a tough time for your boy one. I could have never gotten a plastic. There's just no way if I really squint though one like if you and me are hanging out, and I'm allowing myself to lie a little bit. I would maybe say I could have gotten Karen to go out on a date with me once or twice. That's only though the only reason is because she had the lowest standards of all three in this make believe world where you and I are hanging out and just tell them lies to each other. Maybe maybe I could have gotten the date with the girl who was willing to make out with her own cousin. This question. My question for you is if the amazing Kevin not poor played by Reggie surrender were to dedicate. A rap song to Regina, Georgia and all of our. Wiegmann tosses city. What would you author of the Anjali greats route yearbook think that song would be much less? Thanks bye. Okay. There are only two reasons at a person dedicates reps onto to another person is either a I like you a great deal or B. I dislike you'd right deal. It's always a version of one of those two things. And that's why answering this question is a little bit tricky when we're coming at it from a Kevin angle because first of all Kevin is in the track to Regina. He has a line in the movie where he explains he only dates women of color and Regina George's. Not that so automatically boom that option is out of their second of all he's one of the few people in the movie who is unaffected by anything that Regina George does. He's got his own stuff going on as taken up all of his time in all of his attention. He doesn't have that extra bandwidth to devote to her like mostly everybody else in the movie seems to. I mean, he's in charge of the math leads the math. Let's go on to win the state championship at the end of the year. He's devoted them. He's a performing rapper. He's very clearly a confident guy who were at a guess assumes himself to be somewhere near the top. Or at the top. Of the social hierarchy in highschool already. So I can't talk myself into believing that he would dislike Regina because I can't talk myself into believing that he needs anything from her. So we are losing out on those two reasons that person would dedicate a song to another person. However, just because it's fun. We can look at both those sides if you want if it turns out that he actually does hate Regina. Let's say let's say that he is heard that she's going around telling everybody that joining the math leads is social suicide. That's the phrase she uses when she's talking to Katie about it in the mall. Let's say he hears that he gets very offended. He's like, you know, what fuck Regina, George this next talent show. I'm going I'm going in on Regina for the next hour. Joe he comes out. He's like, Regina. This is dedicated to you the music starts playing. He's going to play a song. He's going to perform a song. That's very aggressive as very intense. That's very disrespectful. That's very upfront. You know, what he's going to perform. He's gonna perform a song called. I hate you. Mitch I hate you bitch came out in two thousand ten ish a rapper in Houston is very regionally famous name zero. He had that song amounts. Very melodic sort of sing song. He's going to do something like that. Because we already know that Kevin g does not have a problem saying how he feels his original talent show performance. He was talking about having sex with a girl on the bathroom floor. He was in a good mood that day, and that's what he chose to wrap about. So if he's in a bad mood. He's fucking coming for throats. If it turns out that he's in love with Regina. Let's say for some reason he's courting her. He has his two week period. Where he's like, you know, what let me see what these white women and talking about over here. If if that's the case, then in easy, pick would be something like fifty cents twenty one questions that's on came on around two thousand and three which is the year before Ming girls was really popular song. It was a very high school v very college e sort of love rap song. He would definitely know about that song. He might lead on something like that. Maybe or you know, what I'm gonna change my mind that I think we know enough about Kevin g to assume that he would not pick that he would do something a little more sophisticated a little more new us. He would want to impress Regina with his ratpac Uman. He would probably reach back a bit further. He would go with something like nine thousand nine hundred. You're all I need by Mary J Blige. You remember this on really it was fucking good. Like he would probably go with that song. Or if we again, if we consider his prior. Talent over forms that we saw which was a little bit lewd. He may go with something a little more sexually aggressive. He might go with something like the Mexes. How's it going down? The volatility. The hood rep twenty fifth come into getting my Balkan. Those was he would probably go that my guess is he's going to go with one of those songs. He's gonna go with nineteen ninety five year all at need by marriage oblige method, man. Maybe fifty cents twenty one questions if he hates her than zeros. I hate you bitch. Let's move on next question. My frustration about Regina charges kind of twofold. So for me, I was a teen girl when I mean girls came out and always struck me about Regina. It was at the ways that she is people are very realistic and other than that. I'm all my classes in high school got together me apologized to each other. How absolutely school we where each other in middle school. Relation and cutting that she has he'll very realistic and evil. Are as someone who's kind of army outside of those groups of pearls. Does that read in the same kind of way that kind of realistic evilness, and does that meet teen girls better villain in high school movies? Because guys always seem to be written as like generic only whereas all have kind of just hunting nece to that and make some kind of deeper characters and love your read on mother shelves. Hey. I'm right in line with you here when you're talking critically about movie villains or when you're thinking critically about movie villains. It's easy to disregard Regina, George is easy to be like, no, she could have never kept up with a Hannibal Lecter or with a Hans Gruber or whatever. But Regina is a wonderful movie character. That's why we didn't entire episode on her. She's a smart complicated creation. She's really well written. She's totally fleshed out you watch mingles, and you go. Okay. I get it. I know exactly who Regina George's. And exactly what kind of threat, she poses. And that's really what you're looking for in a villain. She's a person who could reasonably exist in the world in a person who in all likelihood definitely does exist somewhere in the world. And that's why she's so terrifying. She's a wonderful wonderful villain and that gets to your second point. Yes, I think teen girls are in all likelihood better movie. Villains. Teen, boys. The first person you think of whenever you think about a male teenage movie villain is probably Johnny Lawrence from the crowded. Like, he's the guy who comes up when I posted on Twitter AM doing movie villains. Who should we do our posted something like that? And I got a thousand tweets about Johnny Lawrence from karate kid, and rightfully so Johnny Lawrence is this iconic figure, but Johnny Lawrence could really only destroy you in one way by beating you up. That's it. That's all that. It was after you fucking learn the crane kick, you were good. Johnny Lawrence was no longer threat. Regina, Regina, crushes people in so many different ways. Does there's almost no way to stop her except you have to fuck in the hitter with a bus. I'm with you on this. I agree with you. This question there shea love the show. Listen, so we never meet regina's father in the movie, and I choose to believe that mean girls exists within the same movie universe. As the great American. Phil take it and that Brian mills is actually regina's father from a previous marriage or one night stand with Gina's mom because obviously he does not have the best taste in women. So my question to you is how is the movie taking different if Regina is the daughter that is kidnapped right? Like phone calls, the Bainian are they just like, hey, we're gonna send her back Amazon prime style, actually. 'cause he's the worst. I just Brian like not look as hard does. He do most of Europe searching via FaceTime. I'm curious because I know you're an expert on both films, and I would love to know your answer. Thank you so much. So to recap what you're doing here as you are saying Brian meals, Liam Neeson's character from taken is Regina, Georgia's real life. Father, Regina, George. Is the one who goes over to Europe and gets kidnapped by the Bainian instead of Kim. So Kim in this setup is Regina stepsister Regina gets kidnapped. How does take in look after that part of me wants to give jokey answer. Like, ha ha Regina so bad the abeyance don't even want her. But I'm gonna give you a serious answer here. Because one of the things that happens in taken with Kim is when they kidnap her they realize she's a virgin, so they sent her to that very expensive sex slave auction place. That can happen with Regina, Regina in all likelihood is not a virgin, and I'm assuming this because there's a part where she is making out with Shane and Shane is in his underwear. This is happening at a high school there in like an auditorium like a sound booth or something like that? But if they're making out at a high school, and she's got this guy down to his underwear. I have to assume they were headed toward having sex. You don't take off your clothes to make out? You certainly don't take off your clothes to make out in a high school. That's a very advanced move. That's very we've had sex a bunch of times already move. So probably taken looks looks a little bit grimier. Remember the scene and taken when he shows up to that first place where they've got all of the women are drugged up as a prostitute house. Basically like a factory that's probably where poor Regina ends up. Getting sent. That's where Brian finds are hopefully, not dead. Like, he found the other one this question and answer session turned real dark real fast. Let's do another question. Hey, sorry. It's Karen from Denton. My question is how would you react as one of the twins or the baby the candy Aaron channels too? Regina, George when they're older and more importantly, how would the goat? React think podcast. It's awesome. The fitness often. And I'm really how did you hear more of it? Thanks. Out feel good. If one of my sons became the Aaron Samuels to a regional judge rejected the judges the most popular girl in school. If she was a person who chose one of my children to be her partner. That would make me feel like I did at least something right or if nothing else they were at least handsome, which is usually all you need to like make decent life for yourself in the world. Also, I would be proud because they are continuing the legacy of dating Mingas. I'm married. The original Regina, George. She sitting right here with me because you ask for her answer. So I went to see what she would think. Laremy? How do you feel if one of your sons ends up growing up and becoming the new Erin Samuels? Feel like I would break Regina George's legs. So, you know, no, no, no. You can't say you're gonna break child legs on podcast. You're not allowed to say that. So give me another answer. I said what I said. And I meant it. Thank you. Okay. In no longer invited to participate in the question and answer segments of the podcast. Next question. Hi. I wanted to ask when they have the school assembly in Ingles. They asked if you've ever been victimized by Regina, George measure ham and principles you fall racist hand. What do you think Virginia towards the principal Duval than they've been steals victimized? Podcast by. You know, what it was this is a dark horse theory here. I think she's the one who broke his hand he says he had carpel tunnel. That's why he's running the cast. I don't figure that was it. I think Regina, George broke his arm. I don't know how she did it. But I'm sure that she did it, and I'm sure that she laughed about it. And even if she wasn't the one who like literally broke his arm. Maybe she was there. Maybe they were all at the mall. He was sitting at the water fountain. He slipped. He fell back. He banged it on the ledge broke. And she laughed and maybe took a picture and send it to everybody. Probably sounds like that, it's probably it's probably a thing that's worse than we are intas painting. So I would go with that. I think darkhorse theory. She's the one who broke his arm. Next question. Hey shy. This is Cameron Maryland. My question was if Tina Fey was in an alternate universe in with registered for the movie mean voice, what made you thousand actors play for plastics. We already got that movie. We already got me boys that came out a few years before Ming girls. It was called fight club. Does. That's that's mean boys right there, if we're just doing a straight up gender swap reboot of mingles. But mean boys said around the same time, I think I think my cast for that has to be give me Josh Hartnett. Gimme a young Josh Hartnett as Regina we need somebody who's handsome and and slightly intimidating. We probably wanna taller guy. He's nice and tall. You had a nice Bill to him. Give me Josh Hartnett as Regina. Gimme Jay Hernandez. Gretchen second in command. Of course, give me, Freddie, Prinz junior. As Karen, I feel like, Freddie prince could do a really good job of playing a Ditz and for Katie I'm gonna throw a curveball here. I'm gonna throw usher. I want a young usher plan. Katie I feel like he could pull it off. He had a sneaky strong list of like. Cameo roles in movies. He was already in a movie with Josh Harnett. He was in the faculty he was already in the movie referred to junior. He was the DJ if I'm not mistaken, and she's all that. I think that works. You probably could swap out any of those people all never mind. I changed my mind. Josh Hartnett just got cut from the movie he wasn't holding his weight. I'm replacing him with Paul Walker. Give me Paul Walker early two thousands. And he's fucking he's gonna kill. He's gonna kill as Regina. I wanna see. I wanna see bad guy. Paul walker. That's what I want. We've seen like we've seen sweet Paul Walker. We've seen Ernest Paul Walker. We've seen kind of a little bit grimy Paul Walker. I want bad guy Paul Walker as Regina, George, boom. That's that's a cash right there. Call Hollywood let him know where remaking this in two thousand four let him know where about the bus the market open were making sixty five thousand the first week. Next question. Hi, shay. My name is Joanna. And I wanna know if you follow the takes Katya, the real villain Earls. What is her? Most honest moment is it for example, neglecting her church fence popularity or is it her Horo just other parents concern for what's going on? There's more. So do your thing. That was one of the questions we pose on the podcast is Katie the villain in mingles. There's definitely argument to be made there if we're just looking at what's her most villainous moment, I think it has to be the couching bars that she was giving Regina Regina was just trying to get fit and get ready for the dance and Katie is fattening or up like a like a pig ready for the slaughter, which is in a sense what she was walking her towards anyway, it's gotta be that anytime you're messing with another person's body be it, physical or mental. That's that's a tough spot. That's a tough thing to do to somebody. It's probably that I'm gonna go with the county in bars. Next question. This is Chris Ali from Cleveland, Ohio big fan. My question and comment, you is shouldn't regina's treatment of Janice. E N B her work behavior, or at least included on the list. Regina admits that she's best friends and earn like eighth ninth grade. And when the little bit jealous of her. He goes on homophobic, the rumor that she's a lesbian is is doing. Scooper in here. I like to think of this is regina's first board moment where she kind of takes her first step into villain loves. It becomes a horrible person that we know that. The home of there would never be eighty Aaron getting into the plastics by Janet's never wrong. So I think that. Chris. That's a really that's a really great call. I think I agree with you on all points there. I love the idea of that being as you called it her first blood moment like getting just a little taste of how easy it is to manipulate everybody and lean things in your favorite. That's that's great. That's great. Yeah. You're right. You're right. From now on Chris. Holly from Cleveland, Ohio is the new host of villains. He'll be taking over from this week forward. Congratulations. Chris way to go. Next question. Hey, Jay, this is Nico big fan. Here's my question involves both episodes of your podcast, Regina, doors, and Hannibal Lecter. And is this who would be more successful in the other person's role would Regina George be more successful serial killer than Hannibal would be as the leader of a high school clique or would handle will be more successful leader of a high school play. Then Regina would be as a serial killer. Thank you. Know, what efforts I was thinking that Hannibal would do okay and high school, especially with regards to being a part of the plastics same as Regina. He's very manipulative. He's very good at tossing Insulza people. He's very good at projecting this sort of unbreakable confidence all of those key traits. Like you've got to be able to sit in that habit. Tyrian in the middle of the most dangerous part of your high school. You've got to be able to sit there and stare down. Anybody who comes across your table? That's just what you have to be able to do when you're in the plastics. And so in my head I was thinking. Oh, yeah. Of course, Hannibal would be able to do that. But the more I think about it the more things the more things start to unravel. He's a little too intense. He's a little too weird. He's a little too serious as what he is. He'd be in the cafeteria trying to needle people. He'd be in there like Iraq sent pure West Virginia or what or whatever and they'd. Be like what the fuck you talkin about? Why is your hairline receding? Aren't you supposed to be in the eleventh grade, they would just shred him to pieces I feel it'd be a rap for Hannibal after two weeks is school. He would go out the way MIGS went out and silence of the lambs. It would be bad, Regina. However, Regina would be just fine as a serial killer. That's definitely in her wheelhouse. Next question. Hey, Shay, Troy from Texas here. So the Ming so the highschool negroes Evanston, Illinois, I grew up in Corpus Christi in south, Texas. So my question is how does this movie play out at this takes place in a predominantly Hispanic Latino high school? Thanks love the pod and go Spurs. Y'all if mean girls was with a bunch of Latina's instead of these young white women that. That's a whole different movie, bro. That's the you know that is doesn't movie the local from nineteen ninety five. Did you see this movie with sad grill and mouth fucking Zad grill in mousy? That's what Mingas is with Mexicans. You know, what Mexicans really love I'm gonna tell you Mexican's really love. We really love stabbing. We really love it. It goes like this first place for Mexicans. We love Selena second-place. The Virgin Mary. Selena finishes above the Virgin, Mary because Selena has bangers and the Virgin Mary does. This is. I blaze is Selena Sega places. Virgin Mary third place. We love beans and forest plate. Third place. We love beings and fourth place is stabbing. That's that's that's our top four. If we're doing Mexican mean girls. It would it makes me knows. We have that scene where Katie asks Regina to go talk to Amazon meals for at the party. Mexican katie's. Like, hey, can you go talk to this guy Mexican regina's? Like, all right. I got you. She goes over there. She kisses Mexican Erin. And then Mexican Katie is like oh for real. Like, it's a it's a shank. That's. This is the dumbest thing this is. This is this seems like a good part. We should end on racism. We're gonna end this bonus QNA on racism. That's the last question. I've got for you today. Keep listening to the show, and I'll see you on Thursday for another fulling deficit. We're doing kill among this week. Various if you oughta hear it.

It's been a minute this week on the show actress Regina King she has been in the business since she was thirteen way back in the day film if Beale Street could talk she is out this month with a new show on HBO called Watchman is inspired by the graphic novel of the same name thank you now you can get to the show hey y'all from NPR I'm Sam Sanders Gin goodstuff decades into her career now the industry is finally giving her the accolades many folks think she should've had all along the show deals with issues of race and policing a lot of things that we're dealing with right now in America but watchman on HBO does this thing where it flips dealing with racial bias art we start this conversation at NPR wes together with Regina Kane a bit distracted by her phone you'll hear what I mean in a bit they start walking exploring talking more using language showing personality et Cetera. This show is doing that as well we're going to begin to make some changes what you're in Tuck you in it feels like one these things have shortened our attention spans one hundred percent to the just so much random stuff on the Internet to get also listeners there's some foul language that we've bleeped in the first part of this conversation okay here it is enjoy the traditional notions of race and class policing on its head to make his point we talk about that show and why raising Cain gravitates towards work that is consistently sucked into it sucked in I I'm really trying to be better at looking at social media all right Sam all right after his dad on Energie Zapper what's your phone etiquette light because my rule now is I don't do Gina Kane won two Emmys for her work on ABC Drama American Crime in Two Thousand Fifteen twenty sixteen and this year she won an Oscar for her performance in the Berry Jenkins idea looking at your fee and not having a visceral reaction to something I have not mastered because the Cajun's for anything I've never really done push notifications no no I take that back I realize push notifications of managed to pop in like tweets or something or instagram post from things people you don't follow you and things you should the over compensation for English play my most interesting insisted after that just kept on working John Singleton movies like boys to promote your project or a cause or whatever but the reality is I'm not every single day several times a day managed to be really great at their craft I don't think I'll ever be good at that in what I will say is I'm okay with that about that this internet media landscape is it harder as someone who makes TV or movies to get the attention you want these days I'm for things like exactly what they're off for years you have to do it that way it's just like been watching you for a while it feels like something in the last two three four years you are functioning in your careers functioning like on all cylinders uh National Pancake Day and everything else yeah you know but also it's like you are an actress I and I'm guessing you want to spend more time on the craft than Ugh within me like I feel like yes I need to understand that we are in a different day and age and this is the time where social media is what you use is when you're making two two seven back in the day you one of a handful of networks they got you in a good time slot you watched yes yes and now thing we're alike it is interesting to see you in this moment making the stuff that you're making because as someone who's been a fan someone's life but I think I've been very good at learning from my mistakes you know not repeat really consistent and what I do notice is you have to be on their this deadly feeding it so that you can break through aw you are not just putting TV on the TV you're putting TV into that Internet world's full of distraction and you are trying to be someone I did not care about or that I get in my feelings like why is there national pancake day it's like when you get your phone I guess it's Kinda programmed automatically do that where yeah so was denying all the time and I I really couldn't be like Ding and international pancake exactly I'm trying to be number one trending thing yes yeah yeah it is difficult and it's different out of things like a lot of people ask me first of all I believe that I love the saying that come from and then on the flip side I understand National Tequila Day so what does that say about me thinking big picture and yet but I got to tell you I'm so impressed with those artists that are able to be on there like all the time in posting yeah I think being a mother had a lot to do with getting me to that space without actually think eating them a growing from my mistakes were or just circumstances through his is allowed me to think in a more selfless way or also you have less time telling you yes thank God you can look at it thank you guys you know I'll have people I'm an only mom I'm so I'm learning it justice he were growing together and growing together and learning In this world in your craft it almost feels like you would not have been ready for a role like the watchmen a few years ago I wouldn't have been ready for achieved it like okay I've done it on now you know now what whereas now I know that that is so not even kind of close ask me you know do you feel like you were you should have been recognized here should have been recognized there and oh to be okay in my spirit about that you know that's that's the thing that I find myself that's that's the tough and does it feel it does feels does feel that way I feel like they're they're a lot of experiences have taken place to lead to this moment as with any priority and and the reality of because I'm my son is an only child okay so the reality that not only is he an only child into the tip of the iceberg while it is a wonderful feather in your cap it's seeing it as okay this is great current when I think about that I think about would I have let's just take the Oscar for instance would I have received it the way I taking place and I do feel like a move with more confidence now you know and especially in the past you know seven eight years to get caught up with the pet but yeah exactly in in thinking of like gaining that confidence being a little better just being used base foundation and that came from my mother. Okay that's I mean it's really as simple as that this when you are in the womb and you have it's in the DNA DNA because I'm guessing you float around an industry full of people the asking like ooh Hey I'm happy I'm not you let me get out of this. TJ He didn't now like now it's I think may have happened years ago it I probably would have don't have the inner peace and that just rolling dervishes of nervousness I suppose that can be frustrating I've interviewed a lot of folks where they're not at peace and I can tell just everything surrounding you his spiritually in tune okay my mother my grandmother my Levette at once which I don't know that if that would none they wouldn't have been the case earlier earlier on now what gives you that eighty for the net for the next yeah yeah and you know for me that was happening while I was shooting watchmen heisler global run West and concierge for Westin hotels and resorts knows that when it comes to travel wellness isn't one-size-fits-all Western oh very in tuned to win the opposite is around me when that goes good vibes around you like you fall into conversation with somebody like that when we come back Regina King tells me more about her new HBO show watchmen and what it means to come to the table for difficult conversations it again and you never see that person again but you walk away from the moment yeah gift days moments lynchings in America happened in my town Marianna Florida spinning two years working on this story completely changed the way I saw race in America Ah we make plans in God there's there they get more true than that Netflix comedy special ars asleep having a full breakfast that's wellness to you so our new menu is created with balance and responsibility what are we doing this why are we doing this but you've also Google National Picnic Day Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah pancakes wellness is a holistic approach we try to anticipate the guest meets whether it's helping them move better sleep better eat better on explore and yeah so it is a show that comes from source material comic comic books it uses the listen and subscribe to NPR's code switch so the show watchmen give me your elevator pitch in thirty seconds core emotionally Jesus is what is Jesus yes it is my spiritual really so they're still working so I was prepared at this time of my life to be able to be doing who are fans of the book we've picked up thirty years from when that Book Indiana Okay and we are while like that book dealt with the threat of Cold War you're in this story our biggest fear is racism and policing sounds like we'd get t-rex regions now our gym's open twenty four hours we have gear lending at all hotels Western believes that source material as if it's the Bible it is the Bible of this alternate universe and in this alternate universe we have picked up for those recognizes that wellness is different to everybody whether it's meditating in the morning having a coffee and then going for a run great but wellness to you could be making sure you get nine already and then the detectives they're uniform if you will is individual to so the show is like a Gumbo of genres so you have sci fi you have romance you have she represents all of us in a way I say that because in the first episode officer but she is operating undercover as a police officer because a certain series of events Weston Dot com a member of mariot bond boy this week on code switch a history that hot the Florida panhandle one of the most comfortable have taken place that has led the police department in Tulsa to police in a way my life yes you know and I mean I thought that was so smart for Dame into choose has that backdrop imminent fear also so this show that is asking us to grapple with big questions about policing but in a way where everything's thought its head the racial hierarchy seem to be fully ask you and I can hear it and I can feel like you're very talented and very engaging but obliged lifts your heart but I feel like I encounter that in life and then I'll come first of all this is an elevator pitch if you're on a local elevator in the empire state building so that's uh-huh yeah so I think I'm cognizant to that energy when it's around me and I'm also does it work better or differently than a show that has perhaps more what we see every day you've done other shows about owed you get to see three different masks you know and that's Kinda how we move have gotten to that that I'm okay but you know what you do have yeah right I mean so like there is also this kind of period industry like even like a simply something as simple as you know you can feel that energy like in you're in the grocery store you know somebody say that their identities are hidden so that you this police officer wearing masks yes on patrol on patrols weird to see about race the following message comes from our sponsor Westin hotels and resorts Chris that's one of the things that I thought when I read the script I'm like Oh my God your character in the show I want to describe it accurately you confused on which one we should have on through Angela we kind of explore all of that three Angela through story talking about it without conflicts because I have another life been on the sponsor and that's like the number one ask of all you dear listeners we on the show here were like a little over two years old and you know when a baby is a toddler things start changing do not one detectives whereas whereas the same thing so angela a bar is who I play to me in real life you know who we are at the family reunion is different than who we are at home with the immediate family yeah then who we are at work the relationship between cops and civilians seems to be flipped when you think about using a show like that to get these big central questions of American Life Humor you have real historic events that will be happening the open is the colorized yes so you're given history to yes you and you in this layer so the character is a former police officer I think we can say that she's a police art Boston gets on a nurse you know so we're always constantly changing masks and sometimes we get yes but it is set in the world feels very much not this one how do you think about the way that those shows make us ask those questions raisin policing that seem specifically of this moment magazine more lives this is a show with questions about policing and crime and race I'm trying to revise the past if you're actively not trying to learn about the past or differences than were ever going to get to a space where we have enough people it can be solution based and I say that to say that number that I do feel like I receive things that are provocative or that makes me WanNa talk about Kim later when there's humor involved so I guess this is very similar in that way like for example to be honest about what they're feeling yes yeah a theme in recent work that I've noticed you deal with notions of so much of that is part of my experience being black in America subconsciously and consciously I can't help but be attract it is not just only a white people you know having a reckoning is black people understanding that this is the case that's really the best we can do as an artist you know having the opportunity to contribute to a conversation to force the viewer but I will say that if the story moves me then it moves me and feels like is rooted in truth even if it's mighty then I'm attracted to it I will say because I have been on this earth for forty eight years and no one knows they're going in not knowing what to expect yes I don't want people to I don't WanNa say I hope that you feel this I want you due to walk out of there or come off your couch take it in and just be honest about what you feel you know and and so hit my desk and that'll just be the one that my heart says that's it yeah we'll edit also feels like we're in this moment where a police state and crime and race and policing I'm guessing you taking rolls over time that speak to that is not by accident apple of what I'm talking about the and similar to watchmen in a way the like I don't worked through this stuff is through the creative arts a one hundred percent and also I think a big reason why can't figure it out is because if you're so how do we move in a way that solution based to help that reckoning Jack comes sooner yeah I mean like did you to it I can't help it you know so it's it's not that I'm out there like only send me these projects is like you know five or six things so many people it's terrifying to consider coming to the table and being honest about how you feel that's terrifying it's it's the question between allowing yourself to be angry all the time we're allowing yourself to be solution based in those sometimes that goes together but often right there it's like when you come to the table with differences the first thing you have to do is understand that we both have anger this is gonNA sound cheesy but I guess overall I'm grateful to be nine pride even with all the ugliness that comes with the history of America you know this that's right now Maddie Safai here host of a new daily science podcast from NPR cold shortwave

The Morning Ritual with Garret Lewis-05/21/20 Full Show

"Strong. The most comfortable. Pillow. A. going. Narrowing your Thursday which was Friday or Thursday. The freedom continues I. Think Right, we think. In Arizona Gary Lewis with you. KFI Spam Ninety Tucson's most stimulating talk. Of course, three things I think you need to know. Number One. Doug Ducey, says yesterday at a press conference We're We're looking at opening schools. If everything continues the way it is now, we're going to be at opening schools. No reason to not open schools. T USDA has said an dates for. August sixth sunnyside is debating. Haven't heard anything else I mean. If schools don't open, give me a break all right The CDC guidelines are absolutely ridiculous. We'll get into that I. Mean Take Ninety Five School buses to get the schools open, and it would just. It's beyond stupid. Second thing I think you need to know. Incredible stats from J. P.. Morgan, I'll stick these on my facebook page. Just just incredible stats. Where they actually show, you're ready for this one now. In cities and countries where the lockdowns are lifted. The infection rates of the Chinese virus has gone down. That's right. Where they have freedom where they've stopped these coney in lockdown measures, you stay in your home. V. Infection rates have actually gone. Down, So once again I guess maybe the whole idea of. Keeping people home a stupid idea for schools I'm just throwing that out there and by the people realize all these lawmakers, and especially now the Dangerous Regina Romero. Watch out for that. Third thing that I think you need to know and we've soundbites. This Regina Romero Wall continuing the Tucson lockdown through June eighth, and if it was up to her, she'd have every restaurant have insane rules and regulations and kill their business while businesses are struggling in Tucson. She is introducing. A climate change program, it's called the southern Arizona, green, building, alliance and two percents part of it, and it's basically about climate, change and social justice. And she's putting an emphasis on that. Businesses are literally dying here and she wants businesses to take the time out to go check out. It'd be more green to fight climate change. Stupid, thank you, Batman three things. I think you need to know. It's true, but before we get to Regina this. This data is truly incredible. And put the screen shots on coral. Kinton of NBC News Actually. tweeted out these J. P. Morgan stats now, of course, the word to use a really incredible right. This is how he described it on twitter J. P.. Morgan has a devastating piece. Devastating. Devastating piece arguing that infection rates have declined not increase declined in states where lockdowns of ended even after allowing for an appropriate measurement lag. Meaning well, it's always seven to ten days behind. Well apparently doesn't matter. They have a nice little chart. and. On the side of the has decreased the infection rates after lockdown ended. Well looks like Most of the states are there. Yeah. Shocker shocker right. Incredible stuff. Same thing with countries by the way. Same goes for countries that do a decreased infects, or any for lockdown ended. And JP Morgan summed it up. In the absence of conclusive data, these lockdowns were justified initially, but millions of lives were destroyed with little consideration. lockdowns might not only cause economic devastation, but potentially more deaths in Covid nineteen itself Oh. Crazy. The initial response of the administration was to downplay the risk of covid nineteen epidemic, however, since then, this simplistic thesis changed significantly. Administration shifted to forecasting a larger negative impact, setting the stage for them to outperform. There's a saying well. He goes shifting the pandemic lane to China. The W. H. O. while they are. They are the blame for that. They are the blame, so this is huge news right there, right? Tremendous. News and there's a very a couple of things happened yesterday that I found to be really really good okay. To Santa's listen. I like Mike Pence Mike Pence and Rhonda's hanging out in Florida. Run to census was really good. Congressman was elected governor and he's done a phenomenal job. In Florida as approval ratings are off the charts. Guys. Don't fantastic stuff very trumpian. In not only policies, but attitude is well. Why trump when it was reported yesterday, he had a meeting with Republican. Senators told him to fight. Get tough fight I mean as we gotta do as if that's a bad thing. You want to talk about someone that fights. Someone have fights back. Oh Yeah Rhonda Santa's is one that does that no. Rhonda. Santa's fought back, but before even play for you what he said. The media has been going after. Rhonda Santa's because he was a last one of the last governor's to do a lockdown and one. The first governor's to lift the lockdown. and Florida's doing great, but the media I mean he's crazies to Santa. This is going to have blood on his hands. All these things. Right Oh you're. Florida's going to become Italy under onto sanders. They did all these things horrendous things. Not One of them in the media, said anything nasty about Andrew Cuomo. They actually praised. Cuomo even though he actually does have blood on his hands with his insane idea and policy of sending. Chinese virus patients. Back to nursing homes back to senior care facilities. Where they died and infected others. That's what that's what there's a piece in PJ media about that looking at the difference in the treatment. From the media toward Rhonda Scientists and Andrew Cuomo Andrew Cuomo literally. I mean his policies have killed people. They have killed people, and and and he said we play the summit a couple of days ago. He said. I don't think anybody could be prosecuted for this. Nobody could be held accountable. Old people died. It's what they do, they die. This antics went straight for the nursing homes because he knew those were the most vulnerable and the most likely to get this this virus. So. DESANTA saw the media out there yesterday, and he let him have it. And is very trump again I like Mike Pence I'm all about Rhonda. Santa's twenty twenty four this point. I think once we have trump twice. You Mike Pence is a good guy, but he doesn't. He's not the fighter ease just e He. He's not the aggressor. Let's just he fights. He's not the aggressor. It's kind of that. Trump is yeah. He's very ill. Bad It's it works for him, but I think we are going to want more fighters. We don't want an not saying. I'm not saying says Mitt Romney. Pet Romney never a bowie. No spine couldn't fight and I'm not saying Pencil, but we want someone that's GonNa throw it back at them because that seems to be what wins right. And Rhonda. Santa's did that yesterday. Eighty two disentis, walking out, he was having a Burger with Pencil, some burger joint, and then he walks out and sees the media, and he lets him have it in a very trumpy and way eighty to listen to this. Our data is available. Our data is transparent. In fact, actor burks has talked Multiple Times about how Florida has the absolute best data, so any insinuation otherwise is just typical. Than Narrative, trying to be spun and part of the reason. Is that because you've got a lot of people in profession who wax poetically for weeks and weeks about Al Florida was going to be just like New York wait two weeks. Florida's going to be next just like Italy two weeks. Well, hell were eight weeks away from that and it hasn't happened. Not only do. We have a lower death rate while we have way lower desk. Generally, we have a lower death rate than the ACELA corridor. DC everyone up there. We have a lower death rate than the Midwest. Midwest Illinois Michigan Indiana Ohio, but even in our region Louisiana Mississippi Alabama, Georgia Florida has the lower death rate and I was the number one landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the number one hot zone in the world to come to my safe, so we've succeeded and I think that people just don't want to recognize it because it challenges their narrative, it challenges their assumption, so they gotta try to find a bookie man, maybe et, Cetera black helicopters circling department of Health. If you believe that I got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. He nailed it. He absolutely nailed it especially that last part right there. You're now reporting on how great Florida's doing and how wrong you were. We've succeeded and people just don't WanNA recognize it because it challenges their narrative, it challenges their assumptions. They got to try and find a bogeyman I mean Santa's has done a masterful job. In Florida, Cuomo, the most deaths are a Democrat governor in media is like Yawn. They make excuses. If that was Republican, they'd be all over it. Man All over it. Santa's twenty twenty four. Don't tell me Nikki. Haley this that Blah Blah. This ant is twenty twenty four throwing it out there right now. Oh, yeah to Santa's. Some a lot mocked me when I said. Trump's GonNa win back when he came down the escalator. My wife believe me. Yep only if I could pick the damn lot numbers. Have, you tried. I know and listen I may be wrong. Who knows Martha pull it out and beat Daniel we don't know. The tough tough road for Daniela Climb. But you know what I mean I i. just tell you how it is A. It's my big doesn't mean it's the. It doesn't mean it's going to happen I'm just I? Like I like Disentis a lot I've always liked that guy much more coming here. Look get to the Regina stuff about six forty because it's ethically insane as businesses are struggling, and they are struggling mightily that she's all of a sudden changing everything now keeping things closed and and and trying to businesses to be more green, which will be more expensive as we've seen. We've seen it. We'll continue I've more great news for you. Is this a litmus test? He Litmus test. A City Virginia. That voted for Obama twice had an election for their city council. Guess what happened. It's coming up right here, states. It! Is your morning ritual. Gear Lewis with you. Can T am seven ninety Tucson's? Most stimulating talk. A little bit warmer today. Should not be surprised by that fifty four outside right now, so it's still beautiful. Eighty nine today ninety-three tomorrow low nineties for Memorial Day weekend, ninety-six on Memorial Day itself, and then after that we come back to work on Tuesday and it's going to be one hundred three, and then it's GonNa be one hundred six by Friday so It looks like we've avoided the hundreds to almost June enjoy. Now Oh and right you see in the prep. This story I mean 705 are going to do this story where police literally. Went to a business owner a store because this business owner. was so desperate to sell things she was selling things on facebook live. And the police went to her store and shut her down. facebook live. Where do you get that several five this morning? Just insane stuff. And, I'm thinking that. As we come out of this. And you see the Blue States. Their feet and the red states starting to pick up steam, right minister to pick up steam a lot. there was a CNBC poll that was done. And it says and I'll get to. The Virginia story just a second. It says basically that Republicans want everything open. It's totally political. Republicans want things open one in four one where a mass that's it, Democrats poll. They want to keep things close while they're nervous. They want to wear masks, independence or kind of in the middle. They're ready to blame trump bad. They've comes back for a second time. I mean I. Would they haven't even gotten the first wave, right? So to me. I think that it could help Republicans. because. If all of a sudden things start to turn around, the economy starts to get better. All the doomsday stuff hasn't happened and the media and the DEM's are wrong again. It's GonNa throw the independence. Back over. Back over. Okay. That's just my take, and then maybe this is. is a litmus test daily caller is story Virginia City that voted Obama twice. Just through Democrats out of office weighed what? Three Democratic members of Staunton Virginia, City Council were ousted by Republicans Tuesday. Ready for this despite receiving more votes than they did four years ago. So they got more democratic votes, they did four years ago, but apparently. Republicans independence have had enough in this Virginia. City! They now have a four seat, gop. Sweep on the city council is crazy. The three incoming council members replaced the democratic incumbents that almost doubled. Their vote totals twenty sixteen yet still lost. The Augusta free press reporter Chris Graham. call the results stunning almost beyond words. Democrats got their voters out better than they haven't a May cycle. In Years Republicans got turn out more akin to not quite presidential year, but approaching gubernatorial so I mean they got more Democrats to vote. They did for years ago almost double and they still lost. The incumbents were booted. Now why? Well, the local reporter there said gun control legislation in the state. As well as ready for this. Chinese virus lockdowns. The key turnout driver Second Amendment. And Chinese virus lockdowns. People have had enough. Incredible is that? Right. the, local reporter for comparison to previous cycles, the two thousand eighteen election. Twenty thousand local elections town had seven thousand sixty eight votes cast for three seats. That was the twenty eight back in two thousand sixteen. Until. Tuesday the four seat election at sixty, three, hundred twenty five right. That was that was it. They had seventeen, thousand, two, hundred, seventy nine. Total! This election seventy that ten thousand more showed up. They flipped the DIS to ours. This reporter wrote the strategies worked flipping both from Dida are but the change in starting a stunning almost beyond words, a city that voted for Barack. Obama twice voted for Hillary Clinton voted for Terry McAuliffe and Ralph Northam. Even gave a solid majority to Jennifer Lewis new congressional run against Ben Klein is now controlled by Republicans. So a Democratic stronghold through Democrats out, because of the Second Amendment, and the Chinese virus lockdowns that is huge I will stick on my facebook page, and I'll tweet that because I think it's a big deal. You think that's a litmus test. He think that's GonNa be a forecast a a precursor to what happens. I'm hoping. I'm hoping. We'll get the Regina Romero stuff at about six forty. I have more for you. Oh yes. Yes, yes, matter of fact, There was a shooting unfortunately West Gate up in Glendale. Up, in Glendale yesterday last night, and the description from a state senator witnessed it is is a bit much. A bit much, I'll tell you about it coming up right here on Kennedy Just. So you know you can listen at home by telling Alexa play Cayenne S.. T. on iheartradio. Yeah, enjoy the stimulation. Yeah, amy. What's going on Gary Lewis with you? Here S. T. a. m. seventy-two Sahib's. Most stimulating talk. I just put that story. On My facebook page all tweeted on his second facebook dot com slash gear Lewis, radio like and follow. And see it's. Crazy, isn't it? I'm going to tweet it into to. Now there was a terrible shooting. Hopefully I don't see anybody. Has Died I think there were three victims to. We're GONNA be okay. One was in the hospital If you've ever gone to a coyotes game up in the West Gate Entertainment Center, that Area Right next to the Cardinal Stadium that's where the shooting was. Trying to get details. We don't know what happened why this happened anything like that right? It's awful. It's terrible. The they have the the suspect in custody. They have that right. There is a radical state Democrat senator named Martin Casado. And apparently he witnessed this because he went straight to social media to pointed out by the way. Just like everybody else. But he was doing it to try to push for gun control already. Do you know what this guy said. Let me read you. His tweets state Senator Morton Cossutta. I just witnessed an armed terrorist with an air fifteen shoot up West Gate there are multiple victims. I saw two victims with my own eyes, not sure how many others I saw the shooter being told not to say anything else about details till I speak to police. I'm okay lots of shaken up people. So there you go I. Mean I get did add a, is it? Is it an ar fifteen I haven't seen anything about the kind of gun. It is Ma downplaying it the fifteen. Didn't shoot a by itself. This is a maniac. This is a maniac. I mean leave it to a Democrat to put a strategic description in there to try to push an agenda when an emergency happens. There's a crazy because we don't know how they bought it. We don't know how they got anything about it, and they're already have these firing people to call gun control already. So many comes that another law abiding citizen who needs the absolute right to an air fifteen. Well I am not going. Go shoot people. So, politics as the shooting actually happier minutes later minutes later. In I mean it's not a surprise but it I mean. Have you ever seen it that soon I mean the guy actually happened to be there to see it. Don't you love the stereotyping to right by the way. Someone a woman rights Lemme, guess white, male eighteen to sixty two way meaning Second Amendment Ammo, sexual wearing camouflage pants, facebook post claim to be Christian and a list of grievances against anyone who looks acts believes differently than anyone he does. Really A person who is similar reporter? Actually you know who would actually was. After that let me give you the name of the gunman. Are Mondo Hernandez. So all of the all of the descriptions. Didn't match. I'll tell you more about him and we'll get to Regina Romero. Coming up, don't go anywhere. Jenner pushing a green agenda. Businesses need to go green as businesses can barely stay open here knows greater Tucson Dot Com. So. Let's continue Gary Lewis with you here. Can S. T. A. M? Seventy Tucson's most stimulating talk tree things. I think you need. To know number one Doug Ducey says based on the data we have I mean I. don't see why we're not going to open the schools. We're GONNA work with the school districts, but we should open schools to USD says we're opening August six Sunnyside, the not quite sure yet some insane guidelines guidelines given by the CDC so dumb so dumb. Second thing I think you like okay like one child per seat every other seat in school bus. It'd take you know nine years to get kids to school with multiple routes second thing. That I think you need to know is at J. P. Morgan. Has Incredible data. They've chartered it out and it shows that the virus infection rates have declined in the states where the lockdowns have ended even after allowing for an appropriate measurement lag same thing with countries that have ended it as soon as in the lockdown. All of a sudden, the infection rates drop. Of course the haters are going to say it's because they did social. Due to okay, sure sure right. There you go. Third thing. That I think you need to Know Regina? Romero would love to keep Tucson lockdown pima county lockdown as the mayor of. But guess what? She is now pushing for businesses as they're struggling to survive. She is now pushing for them to go green. The southern Arizona Green Building Alliance. I have soundbites to back it up and play those in a second. Right here on KABC three things I think you need to know. One more thing or a couple more things about the shooter. Because people of course here we go some white Christian guy up there and he just hates every him. apparently. I guess on snap a snapchat video. Of this Armando Hernandez, the shooter. His mother identified him as the shooter by the way. He put on snapchat. He gave a message a video. He said Hello. My Name is Mondo Junior Hernandez and I'm going to be the shooter of West Gate Twenty Twenty flashed a beer can and showed guns in his back seat. He then said. Let's get this done. Three people into the hospital one in critical condition other to expected to recover. That's all we know right now. He just calmly walked across the parking lot. At his weapon, your post describes it as an assault weapon. Who is rain? He was flashing in front of people. And shooting. Glendale police showed up challenged him able to take them into custody. There you go. We don't know why this person did it. We don't know how nuts they are we. We know nothing. Nothing. That's the latest they're. Crazy, isn't it? So let's go. Let's let's talk about some more crazy, shall we? Regina Romero. Like I said she extended the Tucson lockdown her executive. Order her whatever through June eighth. It doesn't really do much. City buildings can open blah, blah, blah despite the fact that we are I mean we are good a matter of fact. I I got an email from my source about the Saint Joseph's Hospital Saint Mary's Hospital. The chronic ED group and they said they're now going to do instead of daily updates on the Chinese virus patients they have which are many. They're going to do weekly because it's just not there. It's just it. It's just unnecessary right now. But what is necessary is to get businesses off the ground, and Regina should be thinking about. What can I do? To get businesses off the ground. What can we do in Tucson to help? What can we do to get people back to business back to work? We need money people to make a living. We but her mind doesn't think that way because she's a communist. You WanNa Socialist Ida. She seems pretty damn heavy handed to me. We'll call our socialist. Jamie, everybody happy. You might be met. The heavy handed of of Heavy Hand Regina Romero the heavy any gender male. She is not looking to try to help out businesses. She's now looking to to punish them. We just saw what happens. When people don't fly, don't. Don't go anywhere, right? which is exactly what the environmentalists want you to do? The economy crashes. And she is pushing that number seventy five her little video by the way which cut her off at the end. She fights English several times in this video. I mean it's it's. It's bad. seventy-five the Tucson Mayor Regina. Romero introducing this here. We go manager.

Ladies and Gentlemen Your First Latino. Hispanic female mayor of Tucson. And you should be against the female Latina. You got you got a female Latino identify differently. This is all about making sure. That you know this is what happens you a socialist? You have a socialist mayor. What it is real quick, we squeezy last two in. Okay, because here we go seventy nine. This is what it's all about. I'm Demi. We should remember that. The breeder battle against climate change is still ahead. There you go now. Fight the pandemic, but the bigger battle well. Why don't we just shut down the entire economy to fight climate change then if you WanNa, shut down everything to fight the pandemic, but the greater battle well don't Oh. That's a good idea, Garin. That's a good idea. And then I love the end where she fights more English and just cuts her off. It just cuts. Just listen to this real. Quick here. We go listening area. We must work to our city and region, strong and resilient for ourselves and future generations and continue to be world class designation to live And he just cut her off. That's not us. They cut her off. Like bad public access TV. Desalination I'm Ron Burgundy. He'll say anything that's on the prompter all right. We'll continue. Don't go anywhere. Seven zero, five a store owner so desperate to sell things not selling things in her store, but on facebook live, but police still come via teller to stop doing it pair visit. That's coming to fix sixty eight. Takes on from the region well studio, your local fiduciary trajan wealth dot com it is. On the free iheartradio APP. Carlstrom build the most comfortable. Gary Lewis with you. Let's do it. It is your morning ritual. Can T am seven hundred. Tucson's most stimulating talk. Three things that I think you needed to know. Number One. Doug. ducey says we're on track for schools to open. and. He's got to work a local school districts, but they're gonNA. Try to get stuff together, but the way things are looking. No reason to not have he's at summer camps and schools open. We have the audio. You had a press conference yesterday. so so that's nice to USD by the way, said August six. They think they're going to open sunnyside. Not so sure we'll get into all of that second thing that I think. You Need To know Regina Romero. We just played the Audio Regina Romero apparently not really caring about whole getting the economy back going again in Tucson because she's she's. She says socialist she instead. She's actually talking about how excited she is to launch a global warming fighting program for Tucson businesses. That's what she is doing. We play the audio sticking on my page candidate dot com and a little bit. If these southern Arizona Green Building Alliance in Tucson part of it, and it's global warming, fighting and social justice all wrapped up into one and wants businesses to check it out. She going to help you get your business over to see any pro economic stuff. Know all about making sure she can get her. Million Trees planted, even admitted that third thing. That I think you need to know. I! Put the chart I took a screen shot on my facebook page J. P. Morgan says as states and lockdowns, and this is incredible. They're data shows as states and their lockdowns. Their Chinese virus infection rates also go down. Even after allowing for an appropriate measurement lab lag. Isn't that great, so the lockdowns are over the infection rates. Go Down, you go on with life you live infection rates go to. The lockdowns were useless. They people scrambled. We can make mistakes, but we have to own up to say. We can't do this again, right? That's what it should be. Oh, by the way small detail here that the CDC now says. Oh the Chinese virus does not spread easily via contaminated surfaces Oh. Did we learn that by the way from that virologist in Bonn Germany? When he said. The only way to really get it is to be in an enclosed area, but if somebody if it's on a surface, he said if what the only way to really get it is somebody coughs in their hand. That has it immediately touch the DOORKNOB. Then you immediately touch the DOORKNOB and touch your nose or your IRA mouth other than that. You're good like you said you right now. Really going to get it when you go shopping. We've talked about this and now the CDC get. Why should we trust anything? They say any government agency any government official. All they do is get it wrong. Three things I. Think you need to know now. There are some states we just you just don't need to live there. Right you just you don't. Tell my wife. I don't care how big an offer is Emma leaving here anytime soon I think but. There is there is. I know to better. It would take a lot. I mean even if it was a big offer I probably wouldn't go. I mean if all of a sudden. Some California radio station offers me gazillion dollar it would. It would be because I. Want to go to these kinds of states where your quality of life is awful right? I mean you can wear masks. State Yeah and then one of those nutty states as new. Jersey. New Jeremy New Jersey stinks to begin with literally smells. Horrible Drivers But they have a Democrat governor. That is complete. I mean JEB complete. Any. Do you know that there was this tillis Jim I believe it's called. They opened up very Ian. Smith is an owner. I've seen him on Fox. Police showed up, said you're in violation of the governor's order. Have a nice day and let it go work out. Well, guess what the Health Department just showed up this morning and shut him down. Shut them down. Where the not keeping the bill ready. I Don. I don't know it's dangerous. People choose to do what they want. They're choosing to go do this stuff. Like. That's it. No, you're not an adult. We're the government. We're going to tell you how to live. And that's not the only thing I'm not making this up. In New Jersey and this is from news twelve. New Jersey. And I'll stick this on my facebook page. News Twelve New Jersey I'm not kidding. I saw the headline police interrupt business owner as she was selling items on facebook live. Face Book Live. She's not selling in their store. Police found out she was doing it by snooping on. Social Media. And they wouldn't shut her down. You gotta hear this to believe it. This isn't and we'RE GOING TO BRIAN WE'RE GONNA pause it for certain parts, because it's just so incredible number eighty three. The business owners name in New Jersey is named Katherine her arms, and by the way she does talk to the media and the great thing is when she's talking to the media. She's wearing a white hat with black letters on the letter say. Trump! She doesn't give a crap. You know. We need to have that cocky attitude. Forget these nut jobs. You say who you are what you are. You don't feel shame about a you. Don't hide it. What are they GONNA do? Another. I'm not saying we don't fight. We don't do that either. But we. You know what I'm afraid. I'M GONNA shame that I support trump I'm. In freedom I'm GonNa Shane that that I believe in freedom and you just either ignorant or you are socialist. It's up to you. eighty-three listen to this here. We go non-essential small business owner in Somerset. County has several run INS with police for not shutting down the latest came last night as she was trying to so gifts from restore online during a facebook live video, even though no customers were inside newstalk. Murdoch explains. Open Up. Open it says. Understand it, says quote beer operating inside your story past. because. That's where my. Pack. Catherine Hermes was conducting a shop from home style. facebook live video from her store country home in downtown Burnsville. She and her friend both wearing masks. The only two inside the store showed off. Viewers, who could then buy them online around nine PM police showed up. You guys are supposed to have down inside the store. Just ask. This past Saturday defiant Catherine Open the store to customers against the executive order I understand what he's saying, and he understands what I'm saying, and this is a very difficult situation for everybody, but we have flattened the curve chief Kevin Valentine says trump has warned once, and during the day yesterday and officer saw another customer inside the store Catherine says that person was simply picking up an item. She was not giving us some insight that time, but she was warned not to open her store or her business to allow people inside. and He he chose not to do that subsequently Catherine. was hanging. So you're telling me what goes into, pick up something. And that is dangerous as a danger to the community. But if you go to a target or Walmart or grocery, store your everywhere. Then it's not a danger to the community. That's okay. That's essential. This is not fair. She's inner store with a friend. Not to the public selling things on facebook live because she needs to try to make money. And the COP show up. We see on facebook live. This is this is like Orwellian. Isn't this is? This is crazy. Let's continue and I'll. We'll get more. Let's let's continue even when she does. Get the green light to fully reopen her business. It's not going to last. The losses have simply been too much to overcome. I'm closing. I don't know that I can be out of here by the end of this month, but I will be out of here by the end of next month, and we can't take disease away. We can hate them, but we can't make them go away and we can't legislate them away by destroying businesses in Burnsville Jim Murdoch News twelve. Here's more. There's more. Police chief says a complaint was filed against Catherine sent to the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office for having a customer inside the store during the day. Tuesday, as for the officers visit after hours that matter currently being reviewed within the department. Sure yet, being reviewed excellent. Excellent all it's being revealed some snitch. Probably call the police lady selling things on facebook. Live I mean it's. It's a virtual sale. And they had to shut her, too, so if she was in her home again. Hey, listen if she was at her home inside her home with her friend with her products on facebook live. Would they have come? Shut her down as well. None of this makes sense? It doesn't work this way. It's doesn't work this way. And I'm hoping that people realize this and it. It literally destroys the Democrats. Come election time I really really do. I have more on this. You can comment as well eight eight Zero K N S! T eight zero, five six seven eight morning ritual. Garrett Lewis Right here in all states. Gary Lewis with you here. Kansas S., A. AM seven ninety Tucson's most stimulating talk. It is your morning ritual. Thank you for for hanging out with me going to be eighty nine today. Eighty nine sixty outside right now. We're looking at ninety three tomorrow for Friday night low nineties over the weekend. Memorial Day. Ninety six and it'll be an of show. We used to say there. There is no best. That's why it's an of show but we've changed that. It's known of show because it's all the best, so you know. What's the difference right? If it's all the best is just, it's just enough show well. Actually I found the greatest I guess I. GotTa Redo it then. I can greatest show. I got the greatest part of the best parts, yeah! The MAGASSA parts it's. It's awesome, so yeah, it'll. We're GONNA run that on. Monday enjoy that the of of this show. On My facebook page facebook dot com slash Gary, Lewis, Radio We have a tremendous story about and this is. This is all related to it in Virginia again. The threw out Democrats of Virginia City Staunton Virginia. They voted for Obama Twice Hillary last year. They voted for the races. baby-killing Governor Ralph Northern. Three Democrats running for city incumbents city counties. All Lost Republicans despite the fact that the team Democrats got more votes almost double the votes this year. They did four years ago. People are pissed. They showed out in droves because they were against the lockdown and the Second Amendment getting in destroyed and Virginia. This is a this could be a litmus test. Who knows Saint Litmus test, but This is a blue state is a blue city and they throughout the Democrats. Just saying. If it was the other way around. It'd be a big story in the media. Just saying it's all my page, so you heard this right? This story I'll stick this on my facebook page as well. This small business owner who literally had. Police show up at her country home store. In Burnsville New Jersey Until you can't sell this, kidding me. Now! This was frustrating to have this this tyrannical Democrat governor. They have their in New Jersey. and. All this new information that comes out is just completely ignored like there's no reason why you can't go into stores now. I mean everything should change on a dime. The CDC said everything is crazy with virus. All these the guidelines are created and lawmakers take advantage of them, so they could rule over you and me. And then when things get changed, there's no changing lawmakers seriously, and this is what it comes down to, so you tell me again it's it's okay to go to Walmart and target and Home Depot and a grocery store. You can't go into this lady store. Stupid while it's just not worth the risk for you. How about this lady to make a living to pay your bills to eat? So now. The CDC comes out. And says well, the Chinese virus does not spread easily from touching surfaces or objects they say. Don't think that you don't need to. You know wipe down things. But. Yeah. You can't get it just by touching things now as easily as we thought so every every business I mean we're we're. We're good here in Arizona seems. Gyms all with the social distancing garbage, right? You know you're GONNA go, Jim. Every other treadmill will be open. Maybe it should be if if it doesn't spread easily. Maybe we should be okay. Why this is! What's frustrating? Lawmakers do not make the changes that happen that we see every day and they see they just don't want to make the change. It's like they don't WanNa believe it well just in case, so wait a second. You're telling me when the CDC said, we can get this by looking at something sideways, and he said shut it all down. You believe that, but now that all of a sudden like you know what it's not that bad up doesn't matter. That's what sucks. I love this Fox News Story. Though when the changes made is not currently clear. The CDC appears to have subtly shifted its guidelines for March which simply said it may be possible to spread the virus may be possible to spread it from retaliated services that caused people to go into crazy mode and lockdown mode in that business can open in. That business can open. And now they're like what quote. It may be possible that a person can get cove nineteen by touching a servicer object that has the virus on it, and then touching their own mouth nose or is. That's what they did in an archive page March twenty eighth. At the time. However, the CDC did not did note. That this possible method of transmission is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. And now they're like well. It's not as bad as we thought. It doesn't spread easily from touching services objects well. That's a change everything, shouldn't it? CDC RIGHTS COVID nineteen is a new disease. We're still learning about it. And how it spreads, it may be possible for this spread to spread in other ways, but these are not thought to be the main ways the virus spreads. It's crazy. The change comes after a preliminary study for March suggested the novel Corona. The Chinese vice can remain in the air for up to three hours live on services, such as plastic and stainless steel for three days member that they freaked out people. It can live for days. Wipe out everything people in gloves. Do we not need the gloves now. Doesn't mean it can't do it. They'd said it's not nearly as dangerous, but again we knew about this from that for just in Germany. This is why I am a talk. Show host in Tucson I see store. I talked about it. Nobody else to media talks about it. Lawmakers. Don't give a crap. They just WANNA. Keep US lockdown. Dr John White. Chief Medical Officer for Web MD.. said it's it may reduce anxiety and stress. Many people were concerned that by simply touching an object. They may get the Chinese virus, and that's simply not the case. Even when a virus a service doesn't mean that it's actually infectious. Wow, this is a big flip deal. Wash your hands do that stuff? Be Smart, but don't walk around and being afraid of everything. And yet they're cracking down by can't be in a person's store and Regina. You Think Regina is GonNa. Talk about this like celebrate this good news. No, of course, not of course not. It's crazy. We'll continue. Don't go anywhere. I have much more. KNX teams have ninety two on Kennedy. Just so you know, you can listen at home by telling Alexa play. On iheartradio. Enjoy the stimulation. Gary Lewis with you here. Kansas T. am seven hundred. Tucson's most stimulating talk. Ryan's enemy emails now from the CDC. Web MD.. Everything you tell you about the flu, they they'd had to avoid it. It's the same thing we'd. Nobody's ever paid attention to it. And a cold it's the same thing as the Chinese virus. It's the same. It's if this is not new information and yet we're all changing the way we live. Over a virus that really affects a certain group of people. It says here. CDC, how flu spreads, person to person, people with flu can spread it to others up to about six feet away. Are they sure about there. Is there a study to back that up by the way? You know what they do. They do like like a sneezing. Just droplets dispersion task, they and you see how far it goes actually a little bit further net depending on well, but then. said it could be. It could be twenty seven. There was one about two months ago month and a half ago. They said Oh. My God to Sneeze actually could be twenty seven feet. Somebody really sneezes and she's not even scary. Vouch like I. Don't know about that as a lot of holes in that study, and who the droplets who's GonNa, so he even down the scary foul g downplayed that. Macomb sneezing your out Cantina real quick Anga. Look obviously. If somebody sneezes on you, it could be a big problem. Obviously, it makes sense to sneeze into your elbow and then go wash. That way you don't sneeze into everybody's direction. That's a good thing I've always thought that I agree. I've always thought that the same thing. It says here though CDC less often. A person might get the flu by touching a surface or object that has the flu virus on it, then touching their own mouth nose or possibly there is to say this, is we? We were never afraid of this in this aspect I just. The the insanity again. That's what pisses me off more than anything is that all this information comes out about this and lawmakers and the media just cherry pick what they want to continue to build their narrative. That is the big giant problem. That is the big problem here all right? By the sorry web, indeed, they had a stat for how long it would live on surfaces and I think it said where to go. What for the Chinese virus with Ours Lou? That the flu virus can live on those objects such as toys and things like that for up to two days, so there's no practically no different in virus. Living on, surfaces. But. I, guess they say well. He is what we get we. There's an a vaccine for the flu. which by the way again, my kid's pediatrician said to me. That I think somewhere around forty percent of people don't take. The vaccine. And about half of them, get the flu, and then it burns out. And then move on. So the season, the same thing is going to happen with this and then the people that don't want to take the vaccine. And it is what it is and some people that will want to, and then you go from there i. just I just WanNa. Get it naturally. I know. Not, will you stop it? You're sick. we will see. Is that a way to get it by the way I only you knew what Ryan was doing right now. I bet you imagine, I'm sure it is you know what I have some interesting stuff. They I'll give you a great example. Wait till you hear Michigan Governor. Apparently says someone can't do. A business can't stay open, but one business can stay open. When you hear this you're going to. You might drive off the road.

Three things I think you need to know number one Doug Ducey says we are going to open schools. He wants to I mean he can't make it up and he's with everything the way it is. We're GONNA work with the school districts. We should open schools. No reason not to now if we continue with this, we're going on a good path right now. t USD said August sixth is the date for them. Other school districts haven't announced yet. We will get to that second thing I think you need to know is Regina Romero. And I'll be putting this video. My Page at Canada's Dot Com Regina Regina Regina instead of coming up with a plan to try to get the economy going here in Tucson. She made a video ad to announce. A new global warming program these southern Arizona Green. Business, leaders program now we have businesses literally hanging on by a thread closing dying, and instead of doing whatever she can to help them. She is now encouraging them to change their business practices to be more sustainable, which of course is more expensive? And it's about fighting global warming. Planting a million trees. She said that she wants to plant the million trees. This is what's important her. Forget keeping businesses open. And of course social justice. It's all there in a quick little two minute twenty second video. Third thing that I think you need to know J.. P. Morgan. I have this on my facebook page out stats. It's a great. It's a graph and it shows the just. Every state that got rid of the lockdowns. Their infection rate of the Chinese virus also dropped. and. Of course, the doomsday are surprised by this not only that happened in all the states here. Also the country's it shows the lockdowns were literally pointless. They were pointless. FACEBOOK page and this is on the heels of again. The CDC coming out yesterday very quietly. Nobody knows what had happened. They just changed their website and said Oh. Yeah, by the way the Chinese virus does not spread easily. On Contaminated Surfaces, oh no! So everything we told you to scare. You has been wrong, sorry. Three things I. Think you need. To know. It's never governor of Michigan. is a complete lunatic I really hope. I really hope that Joe Sleepy Joe cribbage picks her. Right. You know what's supposed to happen right when you pick a vice president. That's supposed to enhance you a little bit. Never hurt you. You pick these lunatics. Either Stays Stacey Abrams because she's a black woman. Like a bully, she picked me. I'm black. You don't pick me I'M GONNA say you're racist. It's what she is. And, then and then you get. This lunatic for Michigan that has making things worse. Michigan again lockdowns in full effect. More people keep getting the virus they're. Cracking down on protesters, this lady's nuts everything she's doing. You know there's a barber. We didn't really see reading early. Talking about and I talked about seventy seven year old Barbara Right. Ryan you saw this story, right? Yes. And Ryan with thought the quote was great known. Iran there's a barber out in Michigan and. said. Basically you love his Co. you, but he was like basically I'm opening up I. Don't care I'm seventy seven. What are they GONNA? Do to me give me life. Isn't that what he said for the most part? Put them in jail. What's going on I? We put me in jail. Amy like him out seventy seven years old alone, right? The Michigan Governor. Sent six officers to his barbershop. He was giving haircuts. Six Barbara's six six officers, six people go shut this guy down. Right. Dangerous. You might get something the guys using a mask. He's got gloves on. You might get something. Excuse me. Might get a good haircut. Yeah there you go, you might feel better about yourself. So that happened, let me tell you something PJ media with the story. Gretchen whitmer allows gay swingers. Clubs operate while Barbara Loses license. You. Think they socially distance at the Gay swingers club. Yeah? I think I should mention the term, but apparently at this it's advertise on their website. They have things. Called blank holes. I'm going to leave it at that. Okay. I don't want to. I've been told there are teenagers at listen, and they probably know better than me. Better than you I'm not. GonNa do it. They literally an Faq question that asks if they are these kinds of holes. Ethical. They actually have it on there. So. Apparently. Group sex essential in Michigan. haircuts, not not not A. It's A. It's an underground private club called club taboo. On. The website on their website is taboo. Events are defined as private party lifestyle socials. There is no sexual activity permitted. Except in the privacy of your own accommodations. So in Gretchen Whitmer Michigan. This is okay in stays, open. But getting a haircut from a guy in a mask and gloves is not. Reading Yeah, well. Listen. There's no sex in the champagne room. The website says about this this club club taboo, T., A. B. You. Amaze is a network of paths and hedges designed as a puzzle through which one has to find a way. In our case, it's a very dark. It's very dark and made with walls that have a few holes in them. I'm just saying that okay. Where are you walking through like unclothed? I, I'm assuming so, but again that's okay. That's not shut down like a slippery slope, but getting getting a haircut. With a guy wearing gloves, and a mask is over the line. It's too dangerous. You could catch something. Says here. In the comments, someone asks them to reconsider. As the the close proximity of people can lead to more corona virus deaths, club taboos, response quote data proves different. They're going by the data. Additionally we're a private club. And if our members want to visit, we will welcome them. Another commenter of the plans to open on May I work stent with the Governor's extension to May Twenty eighth and the club responded. We're we will be opening up May I and apparently the club appears to be open. They had a recent review post on May fourteenth. So Gretchen Whitmer sent six officers to shut down. To give an order to this, Barbara to shut down this Carl Minke, this Barbara shutdown his business for violating orders. And she's not going to send any officers to the gate swingers club. You, have you have a giant sex party? Or, as they called an article dungeon. Or a barbershop. And there's a private club. That lady was selling things in her private business in New Jersey and they came and shut down for selling things on facebook live. This is the insanity. That is the the Michigan. Now. I got buddy sending me the masks that they have a club taboo. Thank you very much reminds me of the mask from pulp fiction. we will, this is. This is Gretchen Whitmer Michigan? Owned by the way the Gateway Pundit had a great story. Apparently, she's telling people remember. You can't go to your your summer home. Right if you have a summer home Michigan people do. You have a summer home. You can't go to that. Yet apparently. Her cars are seen parked outside of her summer home in Michigan. I can do it I. Go to my summer home. You can, ANS-. You can't. She has her second up north cottage in Antrim County Michigan. No vehicles they're all spring. All of a sudden. There's multiple vehicles at her at a little editor, our second Second home. Tie between that Lori lightfoot haircut. She got it you can get. Is She actually paid for which even worse and we will continue. Do not go anywhere because I don't want you to miss out any of this it it'd be terrible. It is your morning ritual meager Lewis Right here. Can T. seven hundred? Karen Lewis with you here on campus. We'll get back into the regina stuff again. We gotta get into that she's trying to. Destroy six sixty eight. saw from the. Studio local fiduciary TRAJAN WEALTH DOT COM. His KFI am seven. Carlstrom build the most comfortable. Job Ever. Yes, hello, it's Thursday. We're almost there almost Gary Lewis with you. It is your morning ritual Kansas. T am seven hundred Tucson's. Most stimulating talk tree things. I think you need to know brought to you by strong built. Plumbing air in solar number. One Doug. ducey says hey. looks like everything's good. We should be on track with opening up schools. We're GONNA work with school districts here again. It's up to every school district, but he says we should be able to do it as of this point if we're continuing this direction that is That's pretty good news. Pretty good news I I. I like it. I like it. I. Know You know when I was a fan of public schools that I like it. Don't shut it down second thing. I think you need to know. Is That Regina Romero has no economic plan for recovery for Tucson. But. Don't worry. I'm going. I'm in the middle of putting this video up my pager cannons dot. com, but don't worry. No economic recovery plan, but she is now pushing. A Green Social Justice plan for businesses in Tucson. Yes, she is so happy. She is she's a Tucson is now working with The Sarah Southern Arizona Green. Business Leaders Program. So. She is no economic recovery program for businesses in Tucson. They're hanging on by a thread and some failed, but don't worry. She's GonNa push a climate change agenda plan with social justice mixed in for you. And she's so excited about that. Third thing I think you need to know. J. P. Morgan and I have this on my facebook page. You took a screen shot of J.. P. Morgan Chart. And and J. P. Morgan put on a charge, said it shows that states that ended the lockdown also at the same time. had a decline a drop in the infection rate of the Chinese virus so fewer people getting infected when they opened up same with countries that did that. Do! You think anybody's talking about that? Isn't that a kind of a big deal? This ready for the CDC quietly somehow someway to somebody just noted on their website. They're like yeah, so The Way to get the Chinese virus Yeah, it's it's. It's not as bad as we thought. If it's on, it's on surfaces. Whoops. Yeah, it doesn't spread easily on contaminated surfaces. Not like we thought sorry about that didn't publicize somebody who's having to scroll over and see it. Even when they changed, but they changed it three things. I think you need to know. Holy smokes. Got Incredible I mean seriously think about this if you're a business owner in Tucson. Wouldn't it be nice if there's some kind of a plan something to get business going to I? Mean we need the private sector, the private sectors of the key right, but wouldn't it be nice if elected officials got behind like a pro business? Move and let's make sure we take care of our businesses. Let's get in there now. Regina can't do that because she wants to. Keep everything shut down. She'd be kind of a hypocrite right if she came out and said Hey. We need to go support our businesses go spend some money there. Let's go do it, but she'd rather see them all go to business. She has never made an attempt to get on the side of business to say we should support them not one damn bit. So I. Her lockdown is continuing in Tucson. Through June eighth now it's kind of a light lockdown. She can't go any further than Doug Ducey said open it up. But still you know what she wants. And no economic recovery program nothing zero Zilch from this this socialist. But, then she makes it announcement. where she says I'm so excited, I am so excited. Businesses I'm putting forth a new green agenda and I'd like you to follow it. It's to fight climate change to get my million trees planted. We need. This is great as we battle this pandemic, this is fantastic. We need to make this happen. So again, nothing about reviving the economy. Supporting the economy. But she will push a green building social justice, program. Oh Yeah, before we get to calls Ryan. Can you play number seventy five, really quick from Regina. Regina and I'm putting this on my page. A couple of minutes at KFC, DOT COM, putting fishing, finishing touches on it. Okay, finishing touches on, it listened to Regina here. We go, Eric. He never meddle in an thrilled that today. The southern Arizona Green Building Alliance is launching in the city of Tucson and throughout the region, the alliance led by local I ONA in partnership with the Tucson Twenty Thirty district and other community organizations is the first of its kind in our region, the goal and the alliance is to help organizations adopt sustainable resilient, an equitable business practices to strengthen their operations in our community equitable. And one more seventy-six before we get to call seventy six. Because it's not just about climate change. It's more than that to here we go. These programs align with my priorities to act on climate change foster a strong economy deliver equity inclusion in opportunity for all equity inclusion. The word inclusion the key. We'll wait wait what the hell you talking about. They want businesses now to change the way they do business by being more environmentally conscious to fight global warming. And help her plant a million trees. We'll get to that with sound a little bit. But this, which was I mean it's just. It's really ridiculous that she literally has no economic recovery plan doesn't even try to come up with one metric. She wants to sink the economy even more. It's too soon Arizona to open up. It's too soon. She says it's to soon. We can't do this, but if you're going to. Do you know what Hey, change the way you do, business and green like I want you to. What a six socialist she is! She's a common the new commie. It's green on the outside red on the inside Let's go to Donna Eight. Zero. Eight, zero, five, six seventy Donna welcome became St. Excellent. I was just thinking. You Know Regina Romero. Has You know in in Tucson has absolutely no idea what to do right now to open up the businesses and the economy and get things going and absolutely no plans when I would be worried about as a small business. I once was, but I'm retired now is that you know we're going along on a? A shoestring. You're trying to make it. You're going by the social distancing. Thing restaurant only has twenty percent of the people and you know you're here cutting on all that stuff, so everything gets opened up and then all of a sudden this pandemic, so to speak starts to rise again. Does the tyrannical government have the right to close us all down again? What incentive do these businesses have? And what insurance do they have that? When they reopened that, they will be able to stay open. No matter what happens. You know that is a great question. I can only tell you you have to vote with your feet right and if you think you're GonNa, get you know. Closed, in Tucson maybe should go out pima county to county because pima counties pretty bad. Maybe you should go or of valleys, not need better. Maybe go to to Chandler or Gilbert macer. Maybe go someplace where it's more friendly toward hate saying that because you never know what can happen now at the same time. If hanging if Doug Ducey doesn't issue a statewide lockdown. The mayor's can't. They can't if they can't just randomly say, we're going to close down our business. She does not have the power that is illegal. They'd be lawsuits out the WAZOO. Nothing right now says Doug. Ducey can't do that again, but that's why there are some Republicans in in the state. House trying to get legislation done for a ballot measure that would require any governor in the future. They tried to do this. After I believe fourteen days. If they do issue a lockdown, they'd have to prove to the state legislature. Why needs to continue and get approval from the state legislature? They Wanna get that as a ballot measure for this November I. Don't know if it's going to happen or not. And then you have a guy stayed Reputa- cavenaugh. Yesterday talked about it. He has legislation where he wants to. The beginning stages say that if somebody wants future governor's executive order by keeping open up of their business, there is no jail time. They will not go to jail. That will be. That's nothing can happen and a maximum. Fine is a hundred bucks, so they're trying. You know that's all we have. Yeah, but you know the government wheels move so freaking slow that you know homely. That'll happen in this state, but look at across the United States and what's happening in Wisconsin and what's happening in other places. What kind of assurance do people have that? They hang on open their business and then just get shut down again. They won't be able to hang on, and nor would the incentive be there or the enthusiasm to do it. Again, we're free market. I believe in the free market I'm hoping that if something like this ever happens again. And we're seeing again. What happens you know the the the data from J. P. Morgan, and all these all these states that opened up earlier didn't do lockdowns. They're finding the states that opened up. Their infection. Rate is dropping, so the LA. The lockdown was was not needed. I'm hoping that most people babies they try to do this. They don't get scared. They say screw it I'm staying open. mean they can't tell everybody in jail. They can't do that, so we say. Forget you, we're. We're staying open. We've been through. This fell for at once. We're not doing it again. High. Stream media will pick up on this at some point, not just you and not just you know the few of us now. There's not a few of us. You know I've been talking everybody planting seeds everywhere. You know for people to think about something other than their liberal point of view so anyway, that's all we can do good for you. That's all you know it's. It's up to us at the end of the dates up to US Donna. Thank you very much for listening and it's. It's a great question. People are a little bit freaked out by that. You know they keep talking about a second wave while you know. The only I really hit was really state of Washington and nursing homes. New Jersey New Jersey New York. Connecticut got to kind of make Michigan the place of this lockdown since I mean this is not going away. That's the thing it's GonNa. Come back. We need to make sure that we we know who this effects. It affects older people that have. That have illnesses that have underlying conditions, so it comes back. They need to protect themselves and the rest of us go about our lives. That's how it is. And Again Regina has literally no plan. No plan whatsoever. And she's doing this. We'll have more on this. And what Doug Ducey said he was asked about people coming for other states where they're destroying the economy. He had a pretty good line about that and We'll get to all that coming up. Do not go anywhere morning, ritual gear Louis. Kansas, T. am seven ninety. Two Sons Dot Com. Here with you here, Kansas am seven hundred. stimulating. Thanks for hanging out. It is your morning ritual. Can T am seven ninety two sons, so they say they in two thousand times Tucson's most stimulating talk, I'm going to be eighty nine today a week from now. It's supposed to be one hundred six. Hundred six. So and I just put my the video the Regina video my pager canister dot com, so go check it out for yourself, okay? Go check it out for yourself. Let's play a more Regina Ryan if you don't mind real quick. If you missed any of this, I mean it's. It's all about the green agenda. Right, so she explained whatever if you understand what she's saying the Green Building Alliance and equity. Inclusion Blah Blah Blah now. She says she's also doing this wall. While businesses are dying in, they're barely hanging on and closing up shop here, right? Closing up shop. She talks about. Why she wants to do this and it's to help her plant. The trees I mean businesses are literally closing in Tucson and this. This mayor of ours is talking about wanting to plant a million trees seventy seven listen. To this, this is incredible. Tila promoting sustainable practices and helping businesses go green. These programs get us closer to carbon neutrality and help the Tucson. Million Trees Initiative. They also created resilient and sustainable economy by bringing good paying jobs, Tucson and preparing businesses for climate change related to shocks. Incredible. Helps US get to the million trees helps us get there. Right said he thinks she has in her house of course she does. She does I think I may have to blame me for this one. Garrett I, do well, she's keeps. She keeps harping about the million trees and I. Remember US saying that that was one of the dumbest things I've ever heard, and he made fun of Romarin I think she may be trying to prove US wrong. Prove you wrong specifically. So how how is that? My fault? Though is the question that that's what I want to know. How is that my fault because you made fun of her? And now she's GonNa. Prove you wrong. She had her mind. She had her mind made up on this way before me. Don't try to pull this. Go on this earth. Don't make this Amax Sally thing on me okay okay. You're the most power. Doesn't go thanks for the. Wife to do anything I ask, but this will happen. Sure so. Yeah there. You Go No this. She's crazy. Get your if your business or you gotta be going crazy right now. And honestly here we go again and I haven't seen any statements and I'm part of the media. Unfortunately, it's good. Where's the Tucson Metro Chamber criticized for this? What a waste they are! Why would you even pay to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce? How are they not pressuring the mayor and look there? Is there any will? There's no way she's Never GonNa Change. So what you got to get it out there there are people to actually elect pro business people, but the chamber is a joke. There are Joe from the net. The US Chamber that heads at all. To the local ones. They're a joke. Did you know by the wayside? No, before play more Regina side. Note that the Chamber of Commerce. came out and said listen. We can't sure all the production in America meaning. We can't bring back all production from overseas because they're globalist. The Chamber of Commerce whether it's the US Chamber or the Tucson Metro Chamber. Now, the Green Valley Chamber seems to be pretty good what they're doing. They make I can't say them all, but a lot of them are just a complete waste. Complete waste. It says here. Reuters had a story. Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue. said quote. Protecting the resiliency of our supply chain doesn't mean doesn't have to mean reassuring all production in the United States. You said there will continue to be a huge place in the US economy for a global supply chain. Make stuff and make it cheaper to. Ship around the world in that aspect, I mean come on. This is the chamber. And you think they're gonNA fight, Back Against Regina Lousy leadership. Lousy everything. The feeling sometimes just you and me, but actually there's a lot of us. There's a lot of us here. You've been in Tucson southern Arizona a lot of us so anyway all right, so you have the tree program, and now it's about social justice. Seventy Eight Regina here. We go more from the video here we go. The certification program helps businesses develop equitable and inclusive operation plans advancing opportunity for on members of our community. It is imperative that we address climate change in meaningful and impactful ways. Unbelievable Social Justice Man. It is social justice. And now here we go. Here, we go. Comparing the pandemic climate change shearing, and what's more important, right? She shut down the whole economy for this. So this to me would mean once you hear this that she is more than willing to shut down our economy to fight climate change. That's she just I'll destroy the economy to save the planet. She thinks you have to listen to this here. We go seventeen to fight this pandemic. We should remember that the greater battle against climate change is still ahead. The greater battle. Frightening one more now again. The you video doesn't cut her off at the end. The video she put on twitter cut off at the end. But I wanted to hear again. Fight English I. Love it it just. Just the best here we go one more just ended here we go. We must work to make our city in regions, trying and resilient for ourselves and future generations, and continued to be world class designation to live. What what do. I know we can all make mistakes I. Get it I get it, but it's. What happens so we'll continue. Don't go anywhere. I have more. School this. We gotta get this Doug ducey stuff. Doug a couple of soundbites about schools. When they're gonNA open. What's it like people from other states moving here? listen not a fan of dog, but at least he said it this way, not a fan at all, but at least he said it this way ABC guidelines for schools reopened. SUNNYSIDE's ready hinting they might abide by some of these which is insane. But we'll get to that coming up on canine teeth. I Gary Lewis with you here Kansas am seven ninety Tucson's. Most stimulating talk. Eight zero. Eight, zero, five, six, seven to get the juicy soundbites ready. If you don't Mind Ryan, but I I want hit Steve Steve is a guy you could tell by his accent. He's from Brooklyn. And before you make your point, Steve I want to know. What is it safe for you as a Rangers Fan knowing that also Andrew Cuomo Rangers Fan not good. People know all kidding. Aside you know I always joke with you about the island ranges and I'm not even a hockey fan, but I just like to get on your nerves i. only watch hockey. We're not little. Blue puck becomes a blue puck during the playoffs, so I can follow it, you know what what can you decide? It bothers ran away from now on everything and anything bothers me about the name Palomo all the way back to Mattioli Luigi when he was the. This husband whoever Luigi was we'll go back on that, but here. You guys are not seeing the depth of what Regina trying to do here. This is a smokescreen what she wants us to plant all these Palo Verde trees all over to like we don't have enough so the whole to sign population will be sneezing all year round and we'll have masks I. Keep the businesses closed. Trees drive me nuts. All I do is same way Yup and my. Question is is her family involved in the landscaping business because she's pushing the tree thing so much That's a question of now. Getting back to the real issue. Okay, every business is. And when you first put a business prognosis up, it's built on risk management, and I've been in the security and surveillance business for thirty five years, so you have everything from theft burglaries, murders, robberies and people open up in the assessment risk management about opening up their business, and sustaining it just like the pandemic. Why can't businesses be based on risk management? If they want to open it up, believe me. People will come what they should have the right to sister on risk management in this case. You'd listen. That's called freedom, right? That's reedom. I'm awake Lou. Did you producer I. Know You guys haven't gotten to the story I blew his mind about Wilson and spalding wall. Where the Chinese government how? Owns Wilson which is going to be producing the NBA basketball's. There's a lot of politics involved in that. People need to. See. What's going on I tried finding? I couldn't find anything about China or Chinese company. Owning. Wilson I know smelled a Finnish company a producer he I goes, and says this company in Finland owns Wilson. I just bought Wilson a year ago. It's a it's a Chinese based company that owns Wilson. This is all based on what happened with the Houston Rockets, GM. Against the Chinese government. I'm telling you do your research on this. It's really true. I think people in United. States should think about not dealing with the NBA or watching TV or watching the NBA Games because this gets lose the Asian market the Chinese market. The same people that brought us the Wuhan virus. So. People should really look into it. If you do do deep research, you'll see that company and I had all the information fan but I ended up racing it off my phone. I believe because I didn't get in touch on Monday because I was out of town, but He saw it because he told me he looked it up himself. You know it's enough going on. I. Know, listen! I got listening.

You have these people that think they know that are. We played the soundbites yesterday more invalid as he said. It's our job to make sure that customers are safer. Clients are saying no. That's the job of the business owner to do that. It's not the job of you. It's not the job of you as a government official. Get Out of the way I mean. If people want to stay home, they should stay home and get everything that we've talked about this morning. On my page. You'll see that and I tweeted out as well. You'll see the graph from J. P. Morgan it shows again. All the states that opened up ended their lockdown. Their their infection rate for the Chinese virus has dropped. It's dropped. It's incredible freedom the way we'll get to the ducey soundbites. And where did you hear these? CDC guidelines to go back to school are. Any and all these people do do see the also bothers me. We're GONNA. Follow the CDC guidelines. That's all we're doing to the state. You know fifty percent capacity in a restaurant. We at most six feet apart from the table. I'm sick all that stuff. I walk into a restaurant and they're like three feet apart. I'm personally are going to be okay with that. You might not be, and you know what maybe the business owner wants to do that. It's up to them. It's up to them. And that's the business owner and the customer. That's it. We'll continue its to just so you know you can listen at home by telling Alexa Play Cayenne S. T. E. ON iheartradio. Yeah, in see a Dev Zone I. Tell you something great news. Good feet. Yes, goodfeet is open. The good feet store is open. It's a grant and swan, next bed bath, and beyond. You've been living inside your home. You haven't been able to do much. You WanNa. Get out you WANNA. Roam you want to explore. Get it right. Here's the thing. Do at pain-free if you've been dying to get out because you've been locked up like a prisoner in your home couldn't really do much stores or closed shops or closed.

There's still a grant and swan right next to bed bath, and beyond they moved. They moved one store over. They actually have more than doubled. The size of their store looks gorgeous, right? So you go to the good feet store and they're abiding by CDC guidelines. So he could still go in there, but the best option for you is to call and make an appointment call eight hundred new walk make an appointment to go see a an arch support specialist at the good feet store probably twenty or thirty minutes, and you're good. They're falling all the CDC precautions. They've employee's and masks. They even are willing out plexiglass divider so they.

Still you know when when they're putting the arts sports on your reach down to do what they need to do to get the correct fitting for your foot. So they are open, also, because since they can't take as many people in the store at a time, they're open extended hours every day. Nine am to seven pm seven days a week.

Free I've been where my for nine years Ryan for two. We love it. Call eight hundred Newark for Good Your Art Sport store. Let's go. Sorry. Ryan hit the wrong gear Lewis with. You can spam am seven hundred. John's most stimulating talk tree things. I think you need to know number one. The deuce newspaper has said that we are going to If we continue on. This path opened schools we should. He's going to work with school districts around the state. To Usda said yes, August six looks like it's the date for US sunnyside. They are not sure come on, and I haven't heard a word. More than a second second thing that I think you need to know Regina. Romero has literally no economic recovery plan in place has even talked about it. But she was glad to announce a green. For Businesses Yup a greenish want businesses to look at her green agenda plan that she is now having for Tucson. Yeah, that's that's where her priorities are. The videos on my page kanus canister dot. Com third thing I think you need to know. Is That J. P.? Morgan put out stats a data of a graph. It says. Wow, look at what we fed research states that ended the lockdown have seen a major drop or just a drop. I should decline in Chinese. Virus infection rates Yup they open it up live life and the infection rate goes down. Oh smokes how about that? Right. This is right after the CDC says and no, they never made the announcement. They just on their website. Yeah the virus doesn't spread easily on contaminated surfaces like we thought whoops weird. He knew that from ever all justin bond. We listen to this show. You stay up to date. I wish my wife would listen to me instead of actually looking at the news to three things I think you need to know now, Ryan. Let's play some deuce real quick yesterday about the schools at his press conference. Let's by seventy three ROE quick seventy-three. Here's the DEUCE. Listen to this. Our goal is we want to open up. Summers can't summer camps, schools and youth activities, so we are planning ahead and all the evidence that we've seen over the last four or five weeks say that is responsible and prudent to plan ahead for schools, summer camps and youth activities, so we're working with the education community school leaders on a plan to safely resume school in the fall. Parents rejoiced everywhere now. I know you hate public school. Listen I i. wish there was an indoctrination I'm glad we still awesome choice. But that's a big relief to parents that do work, and they don't rely on schools to be babysitters, but they need their kids to go to school, because they can't afford to stay home and teach themselves. That's good so the first question to governor Deuce for yesterday. was about. Los Angeles the La Mayor of still locking things down California's still tough, and they basically say. What do you say to the people that are moving here in the businesses I? WanNa. Come here from California seventy four. Here is Doug Ducey ever I. Guess I'd like to say to anyone that's looking to Arizona that's coming from a place like California just to remember that you leave California for a reason, and in Arizona we've had common sense policies, and we've had a lighter touch from the government here and we've encouraged not only public health, but free enterprise along the way. We've been lighter touch aside from my meltdown. When I said how will throw you in jail? Fined Twenty five hundred bucks and take away your list liquor license. Yeah, there you go. Ish. Still Trust me as far as I can throw him. He was asked yesterday also about the legislation. That's going through that would. Stop anyone from being thrown in jail if they if they violate any other future governor's executive order even his. If something like this happens again like you know what I don't care what you say I'm. GonNa stay open I got to feed my family and they sell the same things in Walmart is a my storm staying up. So they said, what do you think about that? He's I'm not gonNA comment on. My policy I don't comment on pending legislation. I mean a great if he said you know what yeah I think that people should get thrown in jail. I would never say that because it's not who is. Thus I. Don't trust him as far as I, can throw. Okay. Now The CDC has put out loud lines. This is incredible stuff. Right here like I thought this was a joke. Thought it was a joke. What is it GonNa? Take to go back to school. You ready for this guidelines for reopening. It's again just guidelines. You don't have to do it and get. The has been wrong all along. They just. They wouldn't even let us know that. It's not even as bad. It's contagious on on contaminated surfaces. They didn't make an announcement. It was just update on the website. Here's the new CDC guidelines. Guy Now rules now. Laws just ideas from these the government bureaucracy to reopen schools ready for this. Wear masks over the age of to. My Kid's GonNa be three in July. You think he's going to wear a mask. Can barely get him to wear shorts. Here put this on no. I love this. No sharing of any items or supplies, all belonging an individual cubbies labeled containers. Blah Blah Blah toys games in daycare with that one. I WanNa say good luck in school with that one too I. Love His desk six feet apart all facing the same way. Maybe in high school. They desks now I I was shocked I mean it's been a long time since I've gone to to elementary school. But when my kid went there, guess what they have in kindergarten near tables tables of six. And kind of have group desks together in threes or fours in his first grade class. I love this distance on school buses. One child per seat skip rose. It would take forty two routes to get kids to school. Install Sneeze guards and partitions wherever you cannot space six feet apart. Yeah, that'll work. That'll work right. One way routes in hallways, tape on sidewalks and walls to assure kids stay six feet apart. No communal shared spaces like you can't go to cafeterias and playgrounds Oh that'll work. That'll work. Kids eating classrooms that'll work to. Stagger arrival and departure times for students to limit exposure to crowds of kids again. This is where they kids already been affected by this. They're not affected. This is the CDC. I mean. You think this is a joke? You think it's a joke. I have more. There's actually a story I want to get to it. The media makes it seem as if kids are dying from the Chinese virus or things like it and if you actually read the story, not quite, they're not quite there. I WANNA I. Want to get that to you.

Corona virus like symptom kills, but what does that mean and terrible for the boy? We'll get to that ancient more time, but I want to play for you a a nutjob. Losing her mind on the Air MEKA space, said this about trump's ready getting kicked off twitter. Listen to this and your lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe. The fact that you've made it worse and that you make it worse. Every day did worse. The joining wear a mask to protect people from your germs. Germs. You're spreading on twitter twitter. You shouldn't be allowing this and you should be taking these tweets down, and you should be ashamed of yourself. You'll be hearing from me on this because this is being. But Donald you're sick, person. You're really a cruel, sick disgusting person. Wow. Trump elected Rodman Syndrome really makes people go insane, doesn't it? What did she say that to Cuomo?

From the region well studio, your local fiduciary trajan wealth dot com this is. Nine. Carlstrom bill the both comfortable call. Ask. Yeah Baby. Let's do it our number four already. It is your morning ritual with me. Gary Lewis Canisters am seven hundred John's most. Stimulating talk of course. There are three things I think. You need to know brought to you by strong bill plumbing air solar number one. The old number one Doug Ducey says schools should be back in session. He's GonNa work with school districts. The way things are going now. He's should be back in session. That is It's pretty good. He's at summer. Camp should be open. Most did some did not I mean it's up to them? He's GonNa work with school districts. To, US, said they're gonNA open up as of now August sixth I. Mean others should follow. We'll see second thing I think you need to know Regina. Romero has no economic recovery plan for Tucson. Not even cheering on not even supporting businesses. You grab closed down. Stop Her. From celebrating, she made a video. Put up yesterday. It's on my paycheck. Canas, DOT COM, a video, celebrating her green new agenda for businesses, so she has no economic recovery plan for businesses, but the socialist is announcing a green new agenda for businesses where she wants businesses to go to a particular website and learn how to be more self sustaining. In the way they do business more sustainable, more environmental. They're having trouble. Sustaining their businesses business to survive, but whatever there you go, there's a socialist third thing I think you need to know. J. P. Morgan puts out a graph some information. And I have it. It's on my page. FACEBOOK DOT COM Gary Lewis Radio I can follow it. It shows that the states that opened up. And lockdown. Their infection rates to the Chinese virus dropped. Dropped! lockdowns as we're learning not a good idea, and like now the media by the way three things I think you need to know. They're focusing on the new. York Post all at the newspaper I we say on the radio gets ignored, but somebody writes in a newspaper in the New York. Post. An editorial the lockdown needs to end now, and that's like the big story. No kidding. You were always ahead of the game. Have you seen that. Roy and you know what people wouldn't. We be able to accept this? Though by the way before we get to the story about this five year old boy? That if these lawmakers said you know what we were told things, we're going to be terrible. We took precautions because we cared up people and public safety. And it turned out to be right. We didn't do it maliciously. I was looking out for for people's interests based on the data I was given turns out. The data's wrong. We're GONNA open it up. There you. Wouldn't that be nice. That's a normal way of doing things. A normal way. But these people. They just can't be wrong. You can't make a mistake it's. It's insane to be you know we make mistakes. I mean I rarely. Do, but it happens. I have one flaw. So We continue with the insane media coverage, and this one comes from Fox News. DOT, com. And I'm like what a horrendous thing that Fox News put up on their website. Boy Five hospitalized with possible corona virus linked complication in children mom. Claims. He'll be okay. What does that mean a possible corona virus linked complication? That got me to read. It's Click Bait. Right against me to read. I knew exactly what it was going to be confirmed by reading it. British Mama speaking out after her son reportedly developed a rare condition. That's possibly associated with the current or recent covid nineteen infections in children. Don't you love this? A news story based about a possibility? Hannah fields told the news L. at southwest news service year old son Harry. was hospitalized with a rare Kawasaki disease like condition. Not, even it was like it. That doctors in the UK and the US and elsewhere suspect May. Be An. Unusual complication of the novel coronavirus striking mainly children, so nothing is ever actually. One hundred percent by. It's not this. Is it possible May? And they all it does is scare the hell out of people because you know my. Parents are very paranoid about their kids right and. With? This could happen I. mean it goes from like nothing and. Very slight chance. It could possibly be that, too. Oh my Gosh! If we send our kids back to school is GonNa Happen? In late April the twenty six year, old mom Russia's under the hospital, he developed a high temperature, sore throat, complain having no appetite lack of energy and stomach pains. His condition worsened less than a week after he was misdiagnosed in the UK with tonsillitis. At the hospital, the five year old ready for this. Tested negative for covid nineteen. But Dr Suspected he likely had the disease some weeks earlier. So he's negative for it, and they speculated based on the conditions that he had two weeks before. What. Now, this Kawasaki said drew was around before the Chinese virus. So. He can't call the Kawasaki Syndrome because then. We had it before before. We knew what the Chinese virus before was out. A negative for Covy, but the headliner remind you the headline. Boy. Hospitalized five hospitalized with possible corona virus link complication in children. They don't even be had it. Doctors discovered the boys. Hurry was elevated. Further tests, real inflammation in his heart, kidney and bowels. He was treated with steroids over the next few days. Antibiotics fluids released from the hospital earlier this month, and has been recovering at home still these aspirin and regular heart scans. And, she said well. We went through his terrifying I'm sure it was that's awful. But then she said I just WanNa make people more aware of the dangers as I. Don't think they know enough about. This. Virus can affect children. How does? He tested negative for it. You don't even know what this was. He the what this even was? Several children across America. You heard that several three hundred thirty million people in this country, several children across America and abroad. Have developed illness in recent weeks with experts, warning more cases of the. Disease like inflammatory condition. In children, it's likely to emerge. The Syndrome has been said to affect children test positive for current or recent infection of the Chinese virus. Yet again, let me remind you. It's a current or recent infection of it. My Kid got the Chinese virus. The coronavirus I should say wasn't trying to the coronavirus. He was diagnosed with that by his doctor back in January. and the doctor said everybody gets at once been around since the sixties and the middle. East where it started, you get a once bad called you move on your. Get immunity to it. It's how it works. What the heck, but you read this you think of the headline. You think man. This kid had the singer had the Chinese virus and it messed him up. Even have it. It similar Zach. Nobody really knows, but he's GonNa. Freak everyone out. Kind of panicked porn. That's out there. And and it just needs to stop to me. It's just totally irresponsible. Totally irresponsible. That's what I think. You could comment like eight eight zero. Eight zero, five, six, seventy I got. Somebody got a message sent to me that I have to share. We hear this. Oh! Right. I got a message from a woman. Her mother is buried in a cemetery here in, Tucson! And This is this is crazy. Her mother, she's my mother. She says I have the best social distancing story for you ready for this one. My mother is buried at South Lawn Cemetery. It's it's off a park avenue in Tucson. And she sent it to me last night said today was her one hundredth birthday. I went to South Lawn at one fifteen pm to visit her grave site and was denied entry by Tucson. Motorcycle police officer. I actually call their office and was informed. They only allow twenty people to enter at a time. South Lawn covers eighty seven acres. That is four point three five acres per person. Whatever happened to the whole six rule right? Whatever happened at? Eighty seven acres, they wouldn't allow her. They twenty people in the eighty seven acres. We can allow. In the wide open in the sunshine in the heat. This is what chief Magnus. The activists has having his Tucson police do. People get rubbed. They get assaulted. That guy got beat to death last April on his home rock ninety minutes for an officer to show up because they're so overwhelmed and understaffed. And this is what Regina is letting happen. There it is as your social distance for you. That's crazy, but it's Tucson right I guess we shouldn't expect anything else. We'll continue eight zero K and S T eight, zero, five six seven eighths i. need to get to some disentis for you because this is a big deal in this this this is this is pretty big descent twenty twenty four. I remember things only get to as well this guy very trumpy, and what he is doing very trumpian. Do not go anywhere morning, ritual gear Lewis. Can S. T. am seven ninety two sons most? Yeah Baby.

Right, they are awful. Anyway, it's going to be ninety three today, eight, thousand, nine, hundred ninety three tomorrow, and then ninety s over the weekend from memorial. Day, we got the show on Monday then in the hundreds after starting Tuesday night, we might have a big surprise. Tuesday morning. What time was that setup for? Ryan, was that like? It's seven ten in the morning or so on Tuesdays. I haven't ten. Ten. We don't want to jinx it. And if it doesn't happen, if it happens, you'll hear it. If it doesn't happen, we'll tell you about it. I can say for now. Tomorrow Morning Eight Oh five Congressman Biggs is going to join me here. We have a lot of things to get. You owe a ton of stuff. We're GONNA I'm sick of these battles. No more stimulus I'm over this stuff we'll get. We'll get to all that. That's just some of the things we'll talk about with. Congressman Biggs. All right Ronda Santa's. Mike Pence very nice guy. Very Nice Guy. Do I think he's GonNa fight enough. I mean we need gloves off? Like Mike is a very nice, guy. But you gotta be able to get down and dirty and give it to the media and give it to the DEM's, and he isn't above board guy. We want trump is a fighter. That's what we want to trump. Told these senators fight. Fight fight next thing you know they have they're. They're trying their subpoenaing Hunter Biden, which is about damn time. He's better. Get this you know Democrats would be all over trump. Sneeze the wrong. They fired the Inspector General Estate Department because he was a corrupted Obama holdovers. They're trying to impeach trump again over this. They want investigations. We've hundred Biden. Who's using his dad's political position to get rich? His Dad knew about it and trump said what the hell we use this. So, WE WANNA fighter in there, right? No fence depends, but I want Rhonda Santa's. He's doing a great job a great job. With with Florida, and Florida has been great like they. One of the last shutdown, one of the first open back up. And it's not entirely opened up, but it's opening up. And the media attacks Disentis for for closing down late in opening up early. Saying he's GONNA kill people. So he's hanging out with Vice. President Pence yesterday at Burger Joint. They go outside eighty one. If you don't mind eighty-one Rhonda Santa's. I'm sorry. Let's do eighty to eighty two Rhonda Santa's. Destroying the media. Over trying to tell him that he was going to do terrible things for the state listen to. This data is available. Our data is transparent. In fact, actor burks has talked Multiple Times about how Florida has the absolute best data, so any insinuation otherwise is just typical partisan narrative, trying to be spun and part of the reason. Is that because you've got a lot of people in your profession who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks about Al? Florida was going to be just like new. York way two weeks Florida's going to be next just like Italy. Wait two weeks well. Hell were eight weeks away. Away from that hasn't happened, not only do. We have a lower death rate while we have way lower desk. Generally, we have lower death rate than the Acela quarter DC everyone up there. We have a lower rate death rate than the Midwest Illinois Michigan Indiana Ohio, but even in our region Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia Florida has the lower death rate, and I was the number one landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the number one hot zone in the world to come to my safe, so we've succeeded and I think that people just don't want to recognize it because it challenges their narrative. Is there something, so they got to try to find a bookie man. Maybe it's at their Black Helicopter Circling Department of Hell. You believe that I've got a bridge in Brooklyn. I'd like to sell you. There you go to Santa's twenty twenty four, so look at the media coverage right they're. They're telling US antecedent blood on your hands. You're responsible for death is responsible. It's wrong all these things, right. And they want to rip. He's doing great. and. He had a like Cuomo. WHO THE IS A story out today? New? York Post. CUOMO under his awful idea that the media loves CUOMO is so good. He replaced Biden's just leader. There are now four at least four thousand eight hundred thirteen nursing home deaths in New York thanks to his policies. Or policy I should say. Four thousand, eight, hundred thirteen. And the media praises him. And Ron to Santa's does a great job. And the media attacks him. Like he's a horrible human being. More? People have died. Because of this nursing homes and died on nine eleven in New York. City in that Freaky, four, thousand, nine, hundred, thirteen at least. It was a new. York, state policy to put patients back in nursing homes I'm looking at the document right now. Department of Health New York March Twenty Fifth Twenty twenty two nursing home administrators from. New York State Department of Health. This is what it is. During this global health, emergency. All nursing homes must comply with the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals two nursing homes. Residents are deemed appropriate for return to a nursing home upon determination by the hospital, physician or desert knee that the resident is medically stable for return. No resident shelby denied re, admission or admission to the nursing home, solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of Covid nineteen. There it is. You cannot be than I'd going back into the nursing home. Because you have or suspected to have covid nineteen, forty, eight, hundred, thirteen, at least have died nursing homes in New York New York state because of this policy from Andrew Cuomo, and yet the media thinks he's the greatest guy. This is one of the reasons why the media. He's the greatest guy smartest man. They literally are propping him up and he has his policy killed. More people than states have had deaths from this. Complete double standard, isn't it? Complete double standard we'll continue I. Know I. Know I get it I get it. You could come to be like eight zero. Eight, zero, five, six, seven. I have more from Santa's as well because trying to say that. Oh, my God, somebody that was part of the The the cove nineteen data. To get up to the media, you fired her. She, you fire this woman because she. She tried to do something different. Wait till you hear this and he. He put it out there. This guy should be president. I'm telling you right now. I like him. He's my friend run for twenty twenty four. We'll continue. You'll get in shakes sixty eight TAB. Just, so you know you can listen at home by telling Alexa. Play S. T. on iheartradio. Yeah, in joy the stimulation. Yeah Gary Lewis with you. Here Kanus am seven hundred Tucson's most stimulating talk. We're not almost thirty. Nine million people unemployed. Scott Open up got to happen. Six hundred doctors wrote to trump's ain't got you out open. He's doing it. There are some bad bad bad things can happen worse than the actual virus itself. Lives are being schools shouldn't be closed. They did all this stuff and the great all this stuff. let's continue now, so Ron Santa's. Apparently they were trying to get Rhonda Santa's. Florida me the Republicans. They hate trump. They hate him. And Rhonda Santa's. He had enough. He had enough. There is a woman named Rebecca Jones. And apparently they tried to say that she being I. She was one of her job was to basically put the covid nineteen data right on the dashboard. She was the data manager for the covid Nineteen Dashboard for Florida. She. She said she was fired for refusing to manipulate the data. About Florida's experience with the virus and to Santa, said none. No, no, no, no, no doesn't work that way Let's do eighty one eighty one. If you don't Mind Ryan, listen to what he said, he go governor to Santa's listen wine. She's not. She's not a data scientists. She somebody that's got degree in journalism communication geography. She is not involved in collating any data. She does not have the expertise to do that. She is not an epidemiologist. She is not. The the chief architect of our web portal that another false statement, and what she was doing was she was putting data on the portal, which the scientists didn't believe was valid data, so she didn't listen to the people who were superior, she had many people above her in the chain of command and so then said she was dismissed because of that, and because of a bunch of different reasons about how she didn't. Also apparently she is under investigation. We'll get to this coming up in a second under investigation. For Cyber Sex, assault or something like that way to you hear about that coming up. Don't go anywhere as Tucson DOT COM. Time we got some Weezer in here. Yeah until I'm looking at you code. You'RE GONNA. Use It. What are you talking about? That's true. It's great I mean I I am. We won't be able to run and not feel like I'm going to Keel over and die. Gary Lewis, with you here it is your morning ridgway. Kfi Am seven hundred. What does that mean? Why sounds most stimulating talk you know my wife is trying to starve me. Try Harder so I can say. Thank you. Turn turn your phone off so. You thank you. I don't need you in in. Echo get enough regularly. Three things I think I need to know number one is that Doug Ducey says at the rate we're going. Schools should open and he's going to work with school districts around Arizona to make it happen. That's. Desirable for parents that have to put their kids in school. They can't homeschool them and they. They have to go they have they have they have to do. They have to make money. I, get it so there you go. To USD said August sixth. I read for the last hour. CDC's were stupid guidelines for schools to go to get back their guidelines. Honestly a lot of it's stupid. Second thing I think. You need to know. Regina Romero. Regina! Goodall Regina has no economic recovery plan, not even encouraging people to. Just go to businesses. Help them out, but instead she makes a little video that she's excited. She has new green agenda for Tucson businesses, and she wants him to follow it so while you're basically trying to keep your doors open. Right, you're trying really hard. She wants you to go. global warming green agenda. She wants to plant the million trees. It's insane. The two minute videos on my pager canister dot com third thing I think you need to know. Is that not only? Not only. Has the CDC been wrong they they didn't even tell people after their website. At some point, they said now they've Chinese virus doesn't spread easily on contaminated surfaces. We thought it did now. It doesn't whoops. I mean it's still could spread, but not like we thought it would. They didn't tell anybody. Somebody just randomly found it. That's that's wanting net. Government's always right lockdown J.. P., Morgan has stats have the graph on my facebook page on. Twitter tweeted out at Gary Lewis on twitter. States that opened up saw a decline. In the Chinese. Virus infection rate. See Open up and the rate goes down. Fewer people get no way. Yup. Would works three things I think you need to know. So Ron Disentis. Rhonda Santa's for for President Twenty twenty. That's that's what I say. I played for what he just said. where he said basically looked she, she did not charge of this stuff. She wouldn't listen and there's more to the story with this as well. Isn't there always seemed to be more to the story. This woman that was fired. The media is trying to make a big scandal because he's a Republican. And, he's a trump guy means he's smart. He's a fighter is why he wins. I wish MC. Sally would get a clue I really do I really do. There's more to it. I want to hear Rhonda Santa's. What else he said about this worker Rebecca Jones and again the media's going after him, but they give Andrew Cuomo whose policies killed at least forty eight hundred thirteen people nursing homes? His policies have done, and they give him a free pass like Oh, he's a good president. He's take on trump. It's the media for here's Disentis. Come to find out. He's also under active criminal charges in the state of Florida. She's being charged with a cyber stalking and cyber sexual harassment Oh the Department of Health to explain to me how someone would be allowed to be charged with that and continue on because this was many months ago I've zero tolerance policy. for sexual harassment, so her supervisor dismissed her because a of a lot of those reasons, and it was a totally valid way, but she should have been dismissed long before that. Wow. Wow No. You're terrible. We like Cuomo help kill forty, eight hundred plus people. That's okay with us. He speaks slowly and his Democrat. We like him. That that happened right before your ears, oh. Yes, it did. So descent. ISKOE's full trump doesn't hold back. And look what happens, he wins he wins. This is what we need. Fighters. This. This is exactly what we need. Okay. And then you have people like Stacey Abrams who again this is amazing to me. Stacey Abrams wants to be Joe Biden Vice, president or qualifications. She's black. That's it. She lost fair and square gubernatorial race in Georgia. She wanted to be governor right. She wants to be governor and you know what. Didn't work out so well. Didn't work out, so she lost fair and square. They'd record turnout matter. Doesn't matter. She is mad. She is so upset. So. She basically has come out and said basically. Yeah, you have to pick me. I'm a black woman. That's just the way it is total racist. Joe Biden picture I mean he's choose me her and Whitmer. As if he's not in enough trouble, right, I want you to listen to Stacey Abrams. Listen to this. You can eliminate anyone who is not a citizen meaning, someone who's a resident green card holder or undocumented. What you're left with then in the United, states today is that fifty percent of the population under the age of eighteen or under the age of fifteen is communities of color. If you remove them from the calculation, then what that means that. That you create a wider and therefore more Republican voting days, and under the constitution, if they are not counted as part of the population, you're not committing discrimination if you don't include them in the drawing of those lines, which means a school board that has a predominantly Latino population and Arizona, but number of kids are undocumented or their families are. They are now not able to elect anyone who represents them because of the way the lines are drawn. I'm sorry. Illegal immigrants able to elect someone that represents them. You just heard that, right? Hang on one more time, which means a school board that has a predominantly Latino population in Arizona but now. Kids are undocumented or their families are. They are now no longer able to elect anyone who represents them because of the way the lines are drawn. You elect Joe Biden you stacey, Abrams. She wants to make sure illegal immigrants can elect people that means vote. There you ego. Regina has got to be rejoicing Right now Oh yeah rejoicing Regina. This is. We gotTa beat that with people that aren't afraid to fight like a guy like the. Prom a guy like Matt Gaetz a guy like Andy. Biggs you gotta say like it is. We don't need milk toast. We don't need vanilla. We don't need that stuff. We don't need boring wallpaper. We need people that aren't afraid. To go after the people that unfairly go after them. That's what is necessary. By the way the insanity continues. If you miss the story, we did at seven Oh five. It's on my facebook page. A New Jersey business owner. was insider business was closed. She had a friend with her. She's desperate to make money was considered by the tyrannical. Democrat governor there to be non essential. She had a friend in her business with with her. It was closed. They were just hanging out and she was selling items on facebook live. The police showed up until she couldn't that. And she needed to wear masks. She's like I'm not even open doesn't matter.

Is you know there's a program run that a child must be seen hit so a good gal was one that did ask she was full and all that structured <unk> socialize off our kenyans no expert so just had a global advice and and as a child. I remember several things that shaped the person that i that i am today. The first one was i was very interested in size originally but i'd never travels and i saw i wished to move a mountain was able to live with a rocket strapper facts so i thought let's see yet attack with we'd also i thought i can design so i drunk. Tickets might see shopping's. It's impossible gals though bildt's kits and in the kitchen now when he said that when he said that a title okay he doesn't know what he's talking about because i don't see but glad he actually insects kind of shelve my rocket building expiration i think <unk> and then just based on what's your interest with the premium career began here at chelsea left with dotan neue in the pilot so in kenya and because i was going to sign a math was like <unk> adults or my father hugh ta data game called pac man i fell in. They wanted to change so i meant that i had some answers but once again i expressed interest in becoming hopi scientists <unk> coding technologies for boys inside difficulties but after i had been told that i couldn't become a second time i'll i'm tired of being told as a woman icon out i mean i want to do anything and so i went onto a university to study computer science at university the tweet eighties class and my best friend not which call visual basic build last. I was on my way to change my pause. Everything in vacancy chew on commits us that can all be mass shooting. I can't give up expense. Try something that i view. It's something that had expended so <hes> so much that i can't go back at the steady have asked what i did with who i may in computing choosing by pilots that when i was in high school i swat exchange for when f s and n was no way i also took a science class <unk> but what was interesting was bombing. Donna we just below iced iced for munis memorize pass fish so i enjoy them ya france electrical circuits. If you give me why as wall i'll just it was so severely and bylabatry vacation going so when i took my science class no no we apply. I remember even been teaching families asking me. Am i really doing science but could be cut because that was the case and and that was what was required in my class so when i came back home to ask more like oh where they say moses look what's up what's with down. It was separate from your memory does that you know people would say oh do i think of travel and appointing classified thousand one on questions our panel kept wants to not take things at face value <unk> so when i went into conway gadara after university waking university and when i wince arm <unk> university <unk> atmos- financially the parents of things myself and and when i graduated i continued to wake i went also into so i felt that everything was going yeah like hardware was but also the other thing was what i was thinking doc model her to go to microsoft's to the immune redmond in seattle and in the process. I was thinking ultimately. I'm amazing too something like a touch back. If i let us and went to microsoft i me i always wanted to stay gonna. I'm gonna i am i wanna make better and i kind of this. Phenomenon called the brain drain when the best adviser <unk> <unk> neaby so i'd volume of stuff as but how would i be punching using to 'em making it changed. Am i wanted to fix my hunch on its achievements and i won its biggest <unk> limited go space up in ghana so even after that that experience when i came back i started to think about when i do salsa shot impact but i didn't have any guidance in just based on my situation is your i was dead. I would get on my phone so i continue to win but i always say that. You know it's like when you have a brain bizarre yeah. You can put like a smooth on your loud but it's gonna create so i kept thinking. How can i make a change. You know how community community ring developments and phony i saw that along the way i at case law system was so victimless memorization. It was gonna be soon off. Oss saw my own offense if we didn't have been solving essential and it didn't have the skillset and we're always independence on gun runs over eight and so people i mean in got example. The ratings always <unk> office. People lose lags currency every as the same thing because people are thinking okay. What can you defend what doug mill is going to happen and people just kind of route ceo expert in that offense on people's. Oh expensive aid organizations the company. That mindset needs to change it needs. How can i solve this problem. What other resources that. I have a break yeah so for me. I was really driven so i mean underdog is to just make gonna end end to end to push and change the narrative because i was tired of that single story of africa or it's he's like mikan omay amazing innovations arrest well developed nations being also create innovation in we can use technology to help us. He is absolutely it's a fascinating story regina china and some curious to hear a little bit more than in your role as ceo at strong solutions then handle using this organization to create the challenge in ghana told me about some fast advocacy and what we do is we've been a little sort of changing narrative event presented the solution so i is presenting people with solutions instance coins so we have an issue with your egress use social media and all these e._s._p._n. <unk> is a rash of showing that when it's possible to impoundment goes use the allergy and it's muscle showcase for empowerment. I don't think he's also training so as developing vets change so the biggest challenges in in leadings ronco an have them yes so some of the challenges the offense when he says and was convincing parents and that goes gonna go cold in terms of wealth and doing that as flashing whether lucar which was yet as parents the reason why now it is time whites you know all the time beijing once is presented inch dot com out nation help us out spoil than a would event of a bit in bohol change sciences amateur changed that we have finding trainers so we would like to expand <unk> in parody ricky things like e._i._s._b.'s. I assigns all the bates at the kennedy half sometimes of somebody who's stealing the subjects concede that asshole you maybe not tell off shoots and so finding that balance also ph coverage as an unbiased any other charge is trying to on next law shits so we need to build <unk> is so we don't wanna teach this to soften confidence. Today's lead us shave african into new business. Obviously <unk> that make it once. You wasn't out suit to achieve intrigue. It's fantastic advice and india and insights there regina and i think particularly valuable for our younger generations as well so as a speak them at this year social enterprise will form which is going to be held in ethiopia in toba. What are you most looking forward to about event so far stumbling flexible the hamels of his actions and all like minded people were in the space and i'm really more than next ranks no oh and then each holding that all positions that would have <unk> lee having given in several organizations <unk> malate humid on me and ask some movie also nine collaborations it. It's gonna be such an exciting experience in so many great people in one place so so how how emerging have you seen the social enterprise sick transforming change the last five years or soy in africa so say contain eight guys and they non sample senior especially remain young while while looking at old german back intending stunning how cancelled the median refreshing and exciting and different people with data's coming to an end child salt over aslo it's interesting channel <unk> and i'm thinking and i was the government's it is kind of cheating in what the navy's cheat on seaside are becoming as-as. Those are so i can generally our relationship was seeing one on this within but also i station and also one on his <hes> and that sounds like a really exciting time then so what advice would you give to the aspiring social entrepreneurs out. They were doing the absolute best to create the impact so my best advice is doing yoga because when you're winning this these times <music> out of the and some of the things that won't content china's keating owain name advice <unk> impacts it will be the best jazz salutes the michigan indeed chopping your c._v. Also michelle us allows together on and the green eight smashing. That's fantastic boss regina so then what what inspiring sparring projects or initiatives have you come across that are driven perhaps by by social entrepreneurs that attacking some of that advice you knew that and creating in some big positive social change i mean the she is lots of sexual it is up eight and and she's making all in space in. I can't trust convince truss hash and national sat denying coming in in chomping that having transparence very sanctioned <unk> latin the experts.

We've had this planned on the schedule for months and now the day has finally arrived. So I couldn't be more grateful, and I couldn't be more enthusiastic about this. So this is terrific. So we share a little bit of just for the purpose of the listening audience. We've worked on an SEC foam together couldn't be more grateful to you. It's gotten. A lot of great reception, and it can allow you to turn it over to you to talk more about Amazon, and where this is all going, and why you believe in this and how people can connect with you Regina in which to purchase some of this. And what some of the subject matters are and what it's birthed out of. So why don't you take it away with that? Sure. Like to stop with the last. Thing you mentioned which is where and how did this come about? And what? Yeah. And what is it all about in the first place, and I like to come today from a slightly different angle. Because you know, we always talk about the fact that people like to finally it comes comes to the end of our lives. Look back and say, we had we laid a meaningful purposeful lies, and we don't want to have that big day of regret where we look back. And we think I wished I would have done things differently. A wish to follow my dreams wished of alleged three connected with such such a person, and and our like to point out at this this stage already, then it's not all about just as individually, I've got much bigger picture here that I like to tack and that is that many of us look AMAN have issues at the moment that like to dress tried so many different methods out there. And it's not about saying that the only method that. Works is what I have developed. It's more about understanding that banal kindly facing a world in crisis, and a lot of people feel very this encouraged by that and said, what's the point for me to to do this work that I supposed to be doing to have about alive? When really the word is in crisis. It's different. And I think I'd like to say the very beginning of your show lease at that that is often these days, particularly in the generation de motivator. And so I had a very close look at this noth-. But I the human condition is as it were is really not understanding this like logical, biology, biological changes that need to occur, and what is that fix in order to to get rid of all the things that depress us at the moment. And keep us in fear. Such is the financial straddle the public that starvations the the even the self destruction on the destruction for terrorism cetera. But really we need to understand that. Actually all start with us because we can be can only fix the world. And if they worried about our trip in our children's children's unites very easy for us to have excuses and say what hey, you know, I'm not in minded light. I've had these issues, and it's too hard, and I can't fix myself very easily and therefore after my bid, and really it doesn't stop there. So I want to inspire everybody here today. You're listening here today that it's not just about you. It is about also caring for the people next to you friends who loved ones, but also the future generations, and it's really up to you to make a change and the change thoughts with you. In other words, if you want to change in the world, then newbie you become the change to begin with absolutely bango. Bingo. So let's break that down. Let's dive deep, and let's explain to the listening audience in eventually to the plot. Kassab scribes were Gina. You know, when we talk about some of those big global issues and people feel that it's really mountainous. It's really like. How do I how do I what's my contributing factor towards us? What what does my voice do? What what does my contribution? Do. You know, when you talk about doing the work. Let's talk about what that means. Because a lot of people they hear the jargon. But they don't necessarily understand from a tangible actionable process concept being able to conceptualize it. What does that mean? Let's give people some opportunity to really understand how these videos in conjunction with what they're expected to do on their own end how they can shift change everlasting change within themselves. And then see what we're talking about. In terms of how that emits into the global picture. Sure. To begin. What you think we need to have an appreciation that we have different ways of trying to address. Certain sections that we have that influence in what we do our behavior. So the the great information that's coming out of research is coming out of neurosciences that a lot of the things we do predominantly ninety six percent of everything we do decide to is actually run by our subconscious programming. And that's scary because the leaves before percent willpower and to break to break it down further you need to have an understanding. And of course, that is not meant to mean, we letting everybody off the hook. You should get yourself off the hook. They need to stop eating ourselves up until I k maybe we did have to Matic experiences in our life that be still replaying, and we have not been able to like the past. Maybe we do we did have some dysfunctionality in our upbringing. Perhaps, you know, we've had maybe one parent that was not the best role model to say, the least, and we can then make a decision and said okay now this programming that be. Downloaded in our childhood in our formative years, which is usually between the age of Sierra and seven, AVI. Now, let this program run forever. And we Don now the victim of those circumstances. All we actually I haven't today to change that. So this is what I mean by change so came in they go off unresolved emotions, we sent -ment hate anything such shame guilt. Whatever user stances might have been because we hear also have done things in the past. We naturally, and so the reason the is a method that I love is very much like coming from a coaching perspective and Anura science. Unlike psychotherapy that tends to dig deepen deep focusing on a problem. We don't really want to focus on the problem. We want to focus on the solution and moving positively forward saying I accept what has happened. I think. Oh, what has happened? I resolve in other words, size a shoes and the circumstances. But now, I'm focusing on possibility. I'm not focusing on what king on myself in a way that I can become a bit of version of what I'm now in the sense that I can now achieve my dreams. And that's what is all about fantastic. Now, you said a few things that I think are worth extrapolating upon delving a little bit deeper in that really resonates with me, and is really at the crux of all of what we're talking about here. So you talk about choice. You talk about what it means to choose because it's it's Tuesday to be solution focused as opposed to problem saturated and all of that in the mix. What that speaks to is what we put our attention on dozen fact grows stronger. So we're focused on negatively if we're focused on stressed in strife and duress and feeling like we're always going to be mobilized by fear. Ear and thinking that we're the victim on were on the receiving end of being shortchanged. Whatever the case may be while what? In fact, you think is gonna continually show up in your life. It's going to be more at the same. Conversely, if we tend to focus on what is the solution. How do I radically the fear? How do I take what unfortunately happened to me once upon a time find the lesson and use the lesson to catapult me into the trajectory of where it is. I say that I want to go in terms of prosperity abundance. Inner joy peace contentment, all of those things. So it is changing your inner script, it is dissecting some of the things that we've been indoctrinated to once upon a time believe in whether it come from the family home, whether it come from school, whether come from community wherever the messaging came from originally, if we know that that no longer resonates with us because we're at that stage in our life where we can think for ourselves and by thinking, it means critically thinking, it means to surname. It means going do I release subscribe to that? And if I don't subscribe to that alternatively, what am I gonna put in the place that's going to best serve me and be integral in honor myself. So that I can be part of that collective change knowing that it doesn't start with me. So let's talk a little bit more about some of the tools, and some of what would be in the SEC films that helps people really get clear on this because it is about clarity. The currency itself is something that comes also from an intention and then through the rewiring week be resolving unresolved emotions and also instilling confidence. Because really at the end of the day. Lisa we have to create that a lot of people in this live have also of fantastic intentions, even if you look at new Israeli Lucians, and then look again that ninety seven percent of those news resolution his loud after two weeks. And then you've got to ask yourself wise that and it's not that people are not trying to take. It's not people that are not necessarily genuine about wanting to make a change. We need to understand. There are blockages that are holding them back. And this is exactly where the from is such powerful inconvenient told. So as I mentioned before psychotherapy is focused on the prominent at the SEC from however because now we have the standing that is logically. The Brian is no longer. Static open is believed until nine thousand nine hundred nine we neither the brain actually create new circuitry and became in other words, change our numeral pathways in such a way that any programming that had formed downloaded in our formative years. And yes, it wasn't your fault that maybe you had developed believes in perceptions because of the environment you grew up with in also expanses, you might have had. And it's not about beating yourself up its own about saying a I'm now, not only setting intention. However now, I'm taking amusing tool to actually fall of free on that. And this toll is convenient. It's rapid because it is based on your assigns. Meaning we now know that in a matter of roughly two to four weeks became fruit assisted visualization, which this particular tool is all about expanded him on an island. We actually fi what because near neurons which thin for repetition. We create new neural pathways and those new neural pathways are just different perceptions. The way we perceive the world because we need to have an appreciation that everything we act out the way we'd be head actually behaviors actually directly linked to our perceptions. If I perceive that someone is nice to me, the most likely I will act nice to them as well. But if someone is a freight, then maybe my my men at hordes them would be very different. So everything comes down to perception. But you see mostly be saying think about ourselves what be consciously away off? So we look at our conscious believes are conscious possession saying, hey, I had a good attitude towards money. All I really believe I can achieve certain things. And the next thing we find with our Taj our south spending more they shouldn't be dire. Straits again, have massive debt. Oh, we done achieve the goal is go away going wrong. I'm really working very hard of this. And we. Don't appreciate because this unfortunate pad of general education at this stage that they subconscious program came Subba tasha, even though we try to consciously do the right thing. So this is where the is to see them is powerful. It is the first told that I'm away off that aligns you suck conscious beliefs eventually with a conscious desire, and that price is becoming congruent then achieve the goals that you set yourself. In other words, you can then follow free on the intention, then he will take the correct action. If you like so it is not about the people don't really have clarity. It's not about that. People. Don't have input intentions. It is really about the fact where are their mental snacks. And rather than us trying to analyze instead in the doctor's therapy. I'm don't get me wrong therapy desperately has its place. I don't need to to in any site that this is a substitute. But this tool that is also. Very effective that can help coaches and health professionals psychologists in their program in treatments to help people on unblocked subconscious Finistere, mental snakes, I call them that trip us absolutely while you said a word of few moments ago that I talk about quite extensively with guests that I showcase on the show, and it's the word repetition because where do we learn it's repetition repetition? Sometimes it doesn't seem natural. It doesn't seem organic. It doesn't seem if feels like it's contrived. But if you know that what you are gravitating towards to repetitiously bring into your life is going to be of benefit to you in. It's going to be of assistance to you. And it's going to really Taylor where it is you want to go then the repetition factor is so crucial because if you're repetitiously focusing or thinking or saying or behaving. In a way, that's counterintuitive for the goals or the outcomes were the attentions that you're trying to establish for yourself. Then there's always going to be a misdirect in terms of the outcomes things are not going to align. And that's where the incongruency happens. However, alternatively if you are repetitiously focusing on saying and doing and believing behaving in the things that support all the great things that you want to show up or being the kind of person, you want to be or to have a positive mindset, and to have a really honed mindset that embraces the yummy stuff than the repetition factor is so pivotal. And so key to the point where you don't even realize you're doing it anymore. It's like second nature like brushing your teeth. It's like, you know, saying thank you when somebody holds the door open for you. It's it's it becomes instantaneous. You don't even have to think about it. So repetition is something that I swear by it something that's incorporated into my daily mantras. My regiments rituals. And I think, you know, there's not enough said about repetition actually repetition to strip it back and psychology comes down to order suggestion. And you absolutely rightly I mean, everything is repetition be become better at I mean, look at at the very beginning. When when when people in humans learn how to walk fair is part of success. So, you know, you watch child at finally is in the process of learning how to walk. It was the first step, and then it picks up and tries again, and it's repetition and it gets better. But until obviously Woking just becomes a process where you don't think about it anymore. So in the from technology, we have of course, the same principle, and that applies there's a lot of people very much like for instance, if you were to take an antibiotic to get rid of an infection. They take it for the first few days. And I think I it's clearing out now to stop not on finish the coast now. At saying, I'm comparing the SEC phone, obviously with a drug, but in the same sense, you can't expect to you something a couple of times. And then think everything is faced. So the SEC from requires stick ability as well. But having said that the repetition in watching the SEC phone is made so easy. It is simple almost as taking out the side effects on my head, which means the few show up every day, and you can invest three minutes in the day watching video, and yes, it does become repetitious in the sense that you may go after you've watched it twenty times been bowed, but bear in mind that they frame in. It's like a butterfly effect everyday three minutes by the time ninety days, we have hardwired your Brian in such a sense that we have not only given you different perceptions. Got new out of bad habits, we've managed to function of the Brian Cody della, which is becoming engaging keeping you in fear. Of course, issue number one block how in your back in the first place para. Ising or if no paralyzing constant getting you to progress tonight or subatomic Jing and saw that then gets becomes if you like automatic just like repetition and now in nightly ninety days later when it's become hardwired. Now, you don't even have to think or intellectualize all the stuff that just talked about. Or you mentioned Lisa now you acting differently without even having to push yourself. And this is what's Brennan about it. So it actually changes you nightly. So now you've become a different version. I mean, you still use the press, of course, and it doesn't change when you traits, but what it has done. Once you confidence is up, and you fees down. And now that the action Santa is activated rather than the fee Santa being activated. Your now tight the action. No longer procrastinate. You not on the phrase, and you have to think so much about the kind of things that you need to do because it now is part of new you are, and that's what's beautiful about it. Absolutely. Well, any becomes more? Tuite of right. It'd be absolutely. It becomes more intuitive. It becomes more spontaneous just happens instantaneously. And so for the listening audience to parallel with what we're talking about with regards to repetition, people can appreciate whether we're talking about the arena of sports, or we're talking about professional artists musicians writers, you know, people who are top of the game people who have honed their craft. I mean, you know, if the goal is to be the best most improved version of yourself only being in competition with yourself, but striving to embrace those things in your life that bring out the best part of who you are. So you know, it's not everybody's dream or goal or intention necessarily to win a Grammy award or to win a gold medal at the Olympics. But the point being is if you invest the time in one talk about this because we done you've interviewed me before we talked about. Isn't it? So key Regina is you know, if you see yourself as the worthy worthwhile deserve -able investment for what you are. Then the dividends will pay off. It will come back to tenfold. And so when we think about the time that people have no qualms hesitating to watch bag news on the news or to engage in gossip or talk about tabloid news or things that are not going to enrich. Our our lives things that are not going to enrich our souls or not gonna further propel our growth or development as human beings. You know, if people have all kinds of time to expand on that kind of stuff that is really counterintuitive and does nothing to propel you or grow you or enrich you are enhanced you then why not see yourself as the investment visualize envisioned the life that you truly do want for yourself. Adopt and adapt all the things that are going to help facilitate that and take your near and closer to those. Becoming actual things in your life. Actual reality day to day reality better thinking more positive framework of mind, making better choices really as you said building up that confidence to the point where it becomes second nature. So knowing that we all have twenty four hours a day knowing that we all is individuals have our own freedoms to make many many decisions on a daily basis. Why would we then expend our energy on things that are not going to take us in the direction for where we say, it is we want to go or live the kind of life. We want to have or be the kind of person we want to be it's really simple people complicate of unnecessarily. Couldn't agree. More with anything that you've said, but I think on Mike to strip it even back further to the audience because I think often to even though it seems simple fast. Once you have an understanding it may not be so simple for everybody out there because we have to appreciate this loss of that going on a lot of people and the self-doubt comes as you said through Los office, Dane a concert. Also, the environment that we have people that try to keep you small. The may be parents may be left months around that dunk want you to leave authentic lot because they have their own agenda. All people really truly want to follow that James. And yet everybody else is stopping them because they have all have decided not to drink. So why would I should you be successful at that? And the Tissot speak for themselves to be honest. It's a shop me when I been became away with Anita two percent of the population. Literally this to follow through on the dream listed anita's aims. Sad. And this is what I want to change is this this is not just about I have a much bigger picture. Obviously. At my heart goes at the compassion. I had four for people and adversity and having been through a lot my myself. And so I can lever light. Let's Streep it back and said, okay, you are one of those people who would love to live in a fantasy life. But you finding it so difficult because aids with the unprincipled, self doubt. And then also it starts with the people around you that perhaps may not inspire an encourage encourage your support you in what you want to do. And this is the game where the from technology comes in that you can do this in your privacy in your own in on your computer. You don't have to go, and nobody even knows if you wanted to say, nobody would even be any any wise and people start to see a change in you new starting to think differently going to speak differently because subconsciously programming is changing. And now you'll you'll you'll confidence. Is grown into what I call unstoppable confidence. And even the other people around you say, hey, what do you think you doing that? You inner was not needs to become his is louder now than the out of office in new stock to listen to yourself and ninety that way became even fainting meaningful purpose alive. So it is not so much lease that people don't intellectualize information, but often through intellectualize ING and getting it still become overwhelmed because the way do I staff how do I even start that prices? And this is really what I wanted to talk talk to to the audience at the moment is because also that's why you and I collaborated and co produced this wonderful icy phone to empower people who asked up who really truly want to change. It's not that that don't want to shake out of the comfort sign they do to make a change. But it just don't know. How to go about it? On my seat up financially, not strong enough to to go. Let's say an sign up for some coaching. Who's a one look at very limited funds. Maybe. Actress lost my job. I was made redundant my business went on to how do I get back on track? How do I empower us those, and how do I overcome this piece of failure over my results on shine? How do I go about this in a very Quin meeting effective way? I don't have much time in the day on so busy on a maybe a single mother jogging children and full time work and made on a very small budget. How can I make that happen? And this is really where the soc- from technology comes into. And I think the ACC on that even I've created, and I actually love it and left the input unite the FM nations, of course, coming from you Lisa the that's how I work with my current produces. So so the input that you gave reproduced. Again, I think is the is amazing amazing too. That would really help people shift from being stuck in fear and lack of confidence finally to issue that becomes second nature for them to actually pick up. The phone and make that phone. Call apply for the job go and and initiate that business contact or whatever it may be and finally make the change come about in a way where the don't have to intellectualize that on have to sit down for hours and working on with books and find the discipline in I taking at least an hour out of the day because it has time or the willingness to do that today. And so watching what ching is from the secret to living fearlessly is too. So easy inconvenient. And yet. It is just a path what because we basing the tool on not only new assigns, which is of course, specifically in plasticity, but it's also based on the new biology. Okay. Believe genetics by presenting PHD, or if you like quantum physics of lease. But it's also a visualization technique that was devised four psycho oncology, but it's like a therapist who really understood what feels on about. Because when you receive scary diagnosed as such. Cancer diagnosis, then you have in that moment, actually, some form of trauma, and you have a phobia. The phobia the fear that you have is that you may not survive, you may be dying. And so in that tool is powerful to help you come. The most improved nor the biggest fear that you possibly have. Which is you know, you laugh being threatened. Then surely, it can address very well any other fees that you might have around feel nephew of not succeeding field being smart enough fee of not being educated enough and all of that. And it does it very effectively. And as a matter of fact, this toll is power with that I have now the premature to have aids not only already achieved amazing results in the health sector specific issues that people have such Stanforth via Missa Fonje, which knows incense TVD, but also push dramatic stress disorder currently death. No, no treatment full. And so the trauma center here in Melbourne in a strata is about to setup international penalty for. Intervention trials in his invited me to participate. So be actually taking this totally to testing by a scientific testing if you like clinical testing by international, but international panel, scientists so I'm prepared to take this tool to get by kind of scrutiny because I'm so confident with already currently father, rethought, the absolutely astounding. And so I want to so I want to instill confidence in the listeners that this is not something that I have thought off it is something that is has been around for forty years in terms of the visualization technique in his might Dr CONNER Symington, a U S international claimed on colleges at the time. Obviously very very famous because of the amazing successes. He had with his cancer patients using the same which is Asian teammate. What I've done is I've enhanced through the application of technology, and what that allowed me to do is create a. Versatile tool. The be now came use not only for psychology, but became now use it for so many other areas whether it is in the area where people are stuck because of fear because of past trauma because of you know, negative problem problem, focus, kind of thinking all when it is people who literally have some sort of mental health issue or even a physical problem or illness or chronic illness, chronic pain, and so forth. And that is what is the saw. I'm so grateful because win transformations come through particularly our testing subjects, but also through the testimonials, speak it. And we find we helping people on stock who've been in and out of psychotherapy for twenty five years OPEC who for seventies paralyzed and act of three months having used the SEC from has shown up every day to spend three minutes in the day watching it because we're committed that that is given liberty see the break frus-, and all of a sudden they. Taking action and doing what I'm doing. Because this tool actually help me as well. After my crisis GMC, and I literally was rough hit rock-bottom and had to rebuild ourselves. So when I look at myself as initially being the Fisk in pig pig and then. Oh, my coaching clients, and I saw those amazing results. And now I'm getting more transformations coming for time, including with the digits with anti collaborated with is now a menace in blown away that we have. Now, finally, soften them. You talk about extreme dental phobia that affects voting million Americans and he's now carrying out. He's only apprentice carrying out his clinic tasting at Queens University. Because he is just convinced. This is the only thing that seems to have worked and helps people to to accompany five every has also about issues that people don't appreciate about the maybe told about having coming to fee, for instance, going to the dentist. No eight actually not going to the dentist and having good own healthcare affects your heart, create heart disease. You might be not to you know, you become infertile all sorts of problems associated with that. But what I wanted to say is I wanted to strip it back to an still high. Opened faith again for those people who said look spent thousands of dollars on south health. I've been courses I've intellectualized all this information. I get you. Lisa annot. What she saying read the books listened to shows I'm trying I'm really trying, but I'm still stuck and not getting to where I want to be still have gap. And this is what you and I have produced. I'm definitely utterly confidence to the three degree that we both as confident that we actually as you often everybody a sixty day money back guarantee unconditional money-back guarantee, because we just know it works, and it was definitely applaud people it will empower them to do everything that you talk about a new shows anything that you you post on social media. So people actually can Finally I get you lease. But now can do it. Lilly. And that's the end goal because it's not about whether you know, I've honed things for myself. Yes, that's important. Particularly if I'm transmitting a message, and I'm trying to get people to buy into my purpose, which I'm very clear on which is to uplift people to fear lesson to live more. But if it's not landing because it's just, you know, they look at you or they look at me Regina, and they think yeah. But you know, there's you guys have like some kind of education. I don't have or or you have some, you know, silver spoon in your mouth or everything seems to align for you. Well, you know, you've had your crisis. I've had my crisis. We know that life continues to happen with unforeseen circumstances, showing up all the time that can throw us off kilter. This is what this is for. This is how to quickly recalibrate this is how to get back on track. This is how not to go down the rabbit hole. And this is how to you know, when people make reference to two steps for ten back. Dick alleviates. All of that. Because it becomes a non-negotiable. It becomes so indoctrinated within you. You don't give yourself permission to subscribe to victimology. You don't give yourself permission to regress in your own achievements. In in your own successes of the advancements you've already made in going forward. So you are not only the first Guinea pig with this. But because you are somebody who has had major trials and tribulations in your life. Not unlike a lot of listeners who are two nd in here today, you know, this is what makes you the expert. This is what makes you the walking talking breathing example because if you could overcome the adversities and the challenges in which you did not unlike the things that I've had to overcome and because we have managed to come out on the other side through taking actionable steps through our choices through aligning with the right, tools more. So predominantly this one that we're talking about right now this film, the testimonials were. Getting back. You've seen them tagged. You on it. You're getting them from other people that you have co created with it's mine changing. And again, we believe in it. So firmly so staunchly at we have no problems offering that sixty day money back guarantee, which nobody who's purchase my films has. I mean, I've heard nothing, but great things I've heard people who can't believe the additional layers levels of clarity. They continue to encounter every single day. And even when they started to incrementally at the beginning of watching this and incorporating this into their daily routine in practices when they started to see that even that little initial shift. It got them all jazzed up. And now there's so much further ahead. And now, they can't believe where they were before they they watched this film and couldn't believe now with the contrast is seeing the before and after of going, oh my God. Like, I can't believe I've wasted all that time in my life and all that energy being south. Defeatist or not getting myself the benefit of the doubt or depriving myself denying myself of opportunities to step into my greatness. I mean, God if I have one regret if I didn't do the sooner. Two I wished I had to take on. She didn't up soon. It myself. But at the same time everything headed for reason than it had been at the right time. I think at the at late, and it's never. I appliance eighteenth suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, and because you know, that the head and explore veteran who had post traumatic stress which thin Osler played out in a family, and it spoke to his relationship in the relationship, his wife, and we already now we the medoff you months seeing how much better she gets in just proves how the function of the brain media make the is becoming disengaged. This is something I want to briefly for that could be went to touch Omni side is because a lot of people said what is different about this toilet. You know, why is it actually so effective? And I think that that that the one poppy had talked about this in that I have touched on this the fear faction of the brain is something that gets treated very quickly. So if we have a particular of conscious believable programming that becomes not a way of setting an intention and that say about buying the property want to invest the money. That's just keep different levels. And you want to make the decision. It's actually when invest money I'd inherited some money. Don't wanna Bennett I want to do the right thing. And because you know, the custom to it because it's a heavily on because you have some subconscious belief that money's root of all evil, or whatever it may be money is bad. And you don't even know half that mental snack programming that mind you want to make a decision, and you taking a risk the fighter flight response. Very quickly gets triggered by the Mukta because homes and now they nasty amid the life. You ought to put it that way. Stotts retrieval painful, mainly where you may have lost money in the past and place, horrible memories. That's very scary main respect to you. And before you know, it you start to procrastinate in new Mejias miss out on the perfect opportunity to buy this particular property that would have been amazing sound basement. And I have to ask yourself. Why did I sabotage myself? So they told us designed to finding disengaged. Mukta and other period of time. It actually stops that self doubt it stop St. enough. If you like playing back of painful memories, so that negative stuff that constantly actually why to have that for reason because once upon a time you need to appreciate how the brain actually wicks. So it's not again, they'd be trying to say it to every individual look out. It don't be fearful it is actually something that served a of Italian brain. So the final flood response with it actually gets kick-started. We have control of this is the thing. And it they negativities that Brian always will have are very quickly any negativity because once upon a time in the days off when you head to perhaps face, a Tiga, we will always be living in a very different world thing the firefly response. Was there to keep us alive and help us alive? And if you've got away from that, say twos, Tiga, and you remain, but that location, and then you end up in the same terrain again. May let's say six months later. The main Tila hedge the purpose to retrieve painful memories, as I do around at rock what happened last time so place that bag so did use of that you don't put yourself into danger game. But today on the stand that we are constantly in threat is files the mind is consent because the mind doesn't differentiate with the threat comes from my physical space somebody rocking with a gun in front of you on the tide. That's on somehow out of the lute all whether you Bank account, and you have no money coming into new, Don how to pay bills all your pop is about to leave you one minute. You know, the threat might be the make delegates treated in the same way. And we need to appreciate that way may in constant fee, and constant straights that excessive it's the problem. So again, we might want to make intelligent decisions may have intellectualized everything. But now the blood supply instead of being flood flowing in the in the frontal part of the brain it actually goes into the high brands will be. Lessened Bellis intelligent, another have been panicked. If you if you exact situation as a student he suddenly can relate to that. And his Don studies in Europe at the exam. But now, you have a massive fear of failing. Maybe this particular exam is crucial for your getting the credits plans to make it through the year. And all of a sudden new impaneling, all of a sudden, you become this intelligent. So the Mickle becomes engaged the blood flow to the high Brian now, you forget it forgotten everything is set for the exact type, and you have a break. You don't know what to do? So the total is powerful coming back to our is to save family. Is that it disengages the make the LA end it activates there for the action center. And now everything that you, and I told me about happens automatically any becomes after ninety days is you said auto pilot. So this is a very crucial part. In addition to of course, the footage does head that has subliminal effects on new inset in the sense, its positive critical Bijal. Allies -ation technique, whereby it builds your stamina it bills you resilience because you're an I least live lies navy. We all live is an easy envio or need that resilience. We all need to have that ability to not Audubon spec, but continue believing that we can achieve what we set out to achieve. So the footage of that film, the sec- from does that supplementary. And then, of course, the Bennett positive for mations that you and I worked together, but the predominant was all came from you. They're the ones that which which now installed a new beliefs that new perceptions that Ray, right? The our programming and change their conceptions emulates at habits to positive habits that Nassir model better. And all of a sudden, she say things on forward, positively and end. Yeah. I'm actually thrilled that United this were to get on, you know. Make beginning to towards the end of your show. But I wanted to express I want to express the gratitude of Hollywood with you. But also having been able to do something for your target market for your audience, the kind of people Lisa that want to and laughing empowered by but now giving them an additional tone to to actually pull it three on that. Well, I can't thank you enough. Not just for your time here today and end shedding some more insight into making the successful. Because people don't know what they don't know. So very quickly because unfortunately, I am cognizant of time when we are winding down here at the bottom of the hour where can people connect with you, Regina, where can people purchase these films any information that you can provide where people can consult with. You would be great. Well, certainly I wanted to do something special for the audience for your listeners to say, thank you. And for that we have something special. We have a little freebie in a amazing. Offer because it's said, I really truly care about people, and I like to empower people and understand difficult circumstances.

W so I try that again, my brain can't dot com slash slash. That is w p the case you list of Audie other phones. Also, if you not interested, of course near the SEC from speaking many talking about the secret to living finish, David, Lisa McDonald. But also if each are nice summary on the background and the signs of the assistive, and if you really interested in digging into near assigns into psychology and more than you can visit a who's your powers dot org.

"This is a head gum podcast. Uh the AH in one thousand. Nine hundred three fledgling pro baseball franchise the Boston Awesome Americans when the first ever world series title the team was changed. Its name to the Red Sox later. That decade was a powerhouse in the early days in the major leagues that is until nineteen eighteen with the infamous trey to Babe Ruth to their bitter rivals. The New York Yankees so began almost a century of baseball futility punctuated by a number of so close yet so far gut punch losses as generations lived and died died without experiencing a title and to add insult to injury. Major League. Baseball in the twentieth century came to be dominated by the hated Yankees but during this extended attended dark age despondent SOx fans found Solis. In the North End Pizza Parlor operated by Italian American immigrant Luigi Deora founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty six eight years into the curse of the Bambino. Diarrhea gave his restaurant and name that an Italian means Queen Pizza. Incidentally the order it's official name is often affectionately flipped by locals and just like the red sox have the Yankees. This pizza shop has an interesting. He saw rivalry of its own with East East Boston's santarpio's pizza speaking of rivalries in two thousand four after an astonishing comeback over the Yankees. He's the Red Sox finally won their first world series and eighty six years a moment famously. Commemorated in the Jimmy Fallon Film Fever Pitch A- and so the curse of the van Beano broke like a damn it at twenty-first-century reversal of fortune. It's the Red Sox that have won on four titles this millennium to the Yankees too and while some locals may prefer rival. santarpio's it's Luigi Orioles chain. That has a location. Location in Fenway Park and is the official pizza of the reigning world stance series champion Boston. Red sox this week on dough boys choice.

Here they can be individual outlets beach. Small Chains Boston. Austin is an interesting city in that it believes that it's a city I grew up believing that it was a city. I grew up believing that walking down Newbury Street and going to Newbury comics made me a man of the world. Tower records was the most incredible place it was Paris practically. It's no longer. There's you know and Boston is always had an incredible food scene. When it comes to things like the pizza and roast beef like unpretentious awesome food? Yes but then. It's also had very pretentious food scene for a long time team. That's restaurants trying trying so hard to be a New York restaurant and I'm afraid that I was one of those awful children who wanted to go to New York style style restaurant that I didn't appreciate Boston food as as it was when I was growing up. Now I do now. I don't yell at me. I'm I'm back I'm here. So they're always been very fine. Fine restaurants right but the fine dining here has always been a little bit aspirational feel whereas whereas the the good places have always been great Does that make sense yes. I'm bad though too. I'm with that guy like you said the Kelly's roast roast beef was a challenge yet. Just the bar pizzas pizzas. came out pizzas. This was we were. We were in line for our chain that were were reviewing earlier and you walked up with with Dano Shadow. Dano out there it was here and I wasn't here tonight and your your accent. You have like like code switch to Boston so hard. Your accent was coming out so strongly in front of Dana's through different man. I know I was was fucking talks. Things came back. It's it's the raspy voice that doesn't help I don't think either. I just sound like a scumbag. I'm one of the one of the few of how long do we wait in line tonight. We we were there. Fifteen minutes hour and fifteen minutes. We should not have told you people where we were going huge mistake. I don't think it was just that but yeah that didn't help but yeah I think from the time Hodgman and I arrived until we were done with. The meal was two hours and forty-five minutes. It was a quiet quiet time. Every minute of it was fantastic. I had a lovely time. I got to enjoy talking to boys fans in the line. I was aghast when Nick started badmouthing combined. They're literally behind their backs complaining about their baby. Yeah and then there is one bitch who walked up to the line. It was like you only know there is like eight tables in there and I was like bitch. Why are you talking to us off road in your waiting choke on a Dick? I said I wouldn't welcome Nicole. Oh welcome to Boston town populated by people who are worried. You might be happy. I liked that I. I've never been happy. What what are you guys that you mentioned bar pizza was mentioned? What are you guys pizza favorites jazz? We're about to get into you. Do Discussing this specific pizza restaurant. How do you prefer your slice? How do you prefer Your Hi Mitch? We'll start with you instead of the random person shouting shouting something for the audience. Go ahead Mitch. Maybe we'll start with someone onstage. People that cates. I'm a classic cheese man Nick I like a cheese pizza and that's why most pizzas was the cheese a large cheese. I like it to be large because because I think it tastes better not just because I want more of it but I also do more of it but yeah large cheese pizza. That's that's to me. That's that's the test. Got It up. Nicole favourite effort style pizza favorite topping Combo. I also am a cheese purist when I order it I say. Can I have extra cheese. Can you put so much that you think it's wrong then. Add a little bit more and I'll put that in the comments on posts mates and they'll text me like what you're feeling sick woman. I want more cheese Also like a white pizza with like ricotta Based on what Sarah and then that Shit we had tonight that dip in chant Louis sauce or you called it juice and I was like fuck Louis Juice Lou juice. It is Louie juice. I like it that juices. Good for Ya se when we review that when we review the chain. I've got a lot to say about. Jesus now it's fine. I usually I wake up every morning. I have a glass of Louis Juice. It's olive oil in garlic and crushed red pepper. I think it's very good. Yeah Hodgman Pizza. Perhaps well I grew up eating New England pizza here in Boston and the chain that we reviewed brought back a lot of feelings and memories. But I like a flat slice I like because I like bubbles. I liked the cross. Bubbles are important to me. Oh Yeah And I I agree with Mitch that the a a small pizza is not the same as large. I mean obviously it's not as large as you pointed out before the ratio of ingredients dances different. And it's and it's wrong somehow agreed. It's not quite you. Don't get the field the playing field of cheese and tomato sauce that you need. This may be extreme but I I think they should eliminate all small sizes. No more small tease no more multi shirts no more small pizzas. Yeah yeah medium above at least medium and above But I was reminded however today of the one small pizza that was actually okay and it was the one that I was a very good boy. I grew up. I did all my homework. I'm an only child member of the afraid of conflict. Like Super Smart narcissist club. I wanted to follow all the rules. I would go to the Library Klein Public Library every day after school. And one time I was hungry and I went to village pizza and I ordered a small pizza and I snuck into library and ate it all by myself. I'll doing my homework and it was the greatest pizza I've ever had my life chasing that out of the rest of my life pizza into a live. I the reason I remember it. So strongly was the feeling of transgression that I had. It really felt like I was doing some. It seems like the fact that it's contraband is more of a factor than that. It's small couldn't bring food to the library whereas I just presumed this must be illegal to be honest with you. I only use the library for eating read. I know that's what I'm saying. The fact the fact that I was not immediately punished sent to library jail for this opened a realm of ambiguity in my life is haunted me ever. Since do you take food with you to other places. You're not supposed to bring food like what a movie theater. Y- you're bringing full meals to the movie. What are you bringing gale bringing Taco Bell to the movie? Wow I like that Yup and like a full bottle of wine is a great time. Just been tastic. Jews put all that in a handbag. How do you get it into the theater theater? Yeah handbag or like a little mini backpack with rhinestones. So they're like she's playful. Do you match the wine to the movie. Like let's so you're GONNA go see episode one. The Phantom menace. What would you bring? Oh boy what would I bring to the fun time. Probably a bottle Levada correct truly black out not interested. I don't like I don't like people that bring their own homemade popcorn to the movies. Wow you know if you can get cheap and stupid yes you have delicious popcorn there If you could get in trouble for that right out every person I saw who did. It shouldn't be able to bring that stuff in. It's bullshit get get the buttery delicious popcorn there. You don't like popcorn popcorn and also like popcorn weird. Yeah this is. We've had this conversation that we may have popcorn popcorn which also I think people in Boston. He does say Okay Weird. I don't know I don't know if it's Boston thing. Or what right over here isn't a Boston thing. Wow to say when you said you said Pete's earlier that's right. How do you pronounce tuna fish rush to nervous not only from Boston? But I'm not well read. I didn't ask you to say that because I wanted to humiliate you. It's only that I I love. I Love the Boston accent so much and even though I grew up here are I cannot speak in it like a human without a country. Someone was saying Brooklyn they said it's because of Brooklyn but I don't think yeah. recline nine has no accent. Is that true. It has no personality whatsoever. Interesting you can sneak a pete's into the library in Brooklyn that's take a wild town. coolidge corner movie has still has real butter on the popcorn. Oh that that's what I miss and what I miss this. I guess the pizza place next to the coolidge now is pretty good. Yeah auto pizza across the street from Portland or Portland Maine. But there used to be Allen Tony's when I worked at the Coolidge Allen Tony's made a Caesar Salad that the most garlic dressing I've ever tasted it and I think about it probably twice a week. You worked at the COOLIDGE. Yeah wow what was your job everything I ripped tickets. I serve popcorn I- windex popcorn up corn container. Wait wait you like clean the inside of it with windex. Of course there was nothing like the smell of hot winds. It was a movie. I wasn't movie man. I worked at brain at braintree. Cinema worked at braintree cinema. Were you in a situation. Sure you had to wear a special vest or something or a little bowtie. I had to wear a t shirt with a cartoon popcorn on the back of it and I remember kids from high school. I was a senior writer and I remember. Kids came to see American by two and I was like in that T. Shirt I'll say this looks like a loser. Will you know what Mitch now. You're a different. What kind of movie man? Thanks Nick. Nick we're both. We both are tweet. Come from train families as well what what did you say all right. That is weird. What's what did you say Come from trading. Hey Rain Families Oh you're going to bring up this anecdote. Brigham Dad worked for the NBA. Yes in a building right right over there I love. I love the fact that this or there worked so hard to muster up a woo for the red sox naked said my opening is going to be a little pandering tonight. I'm sorry I wish I told you that you should have gone with a different team. You should have gone celtics or patriots. It's you know you don't think the red sox say it's a generational thing it's just. The Red Sox are on television right now if people want to see. These are podcasts nerd. Don't care hair that's true. I hope there was. There was just such more energy in the Wu for the in. My Dad were yes all right now. If you're a committed you'd all do a Standing Ovation Robina. I'll do it again. Do it again. My Dad worked for the NBA. Wow this is amazing. Looking into the crowd of the people who are like I will not. Yeah because there is this I see you write down. There's no way that this is the last time I ever listen to this. PODCAST public transport. No I wish my the Dow is here to watch this today but I was thinking about this a little bit but I also thought about how fucking confused he'd be. Yes I was like Dad. I have a job. He'd be like I'm so proud of you and he's like what is that job and I bike. I eat fast food and talk about it and he'd be like what the fuck it would be like a twilight zone episode soda. Yeah right I'm playing the Wilburn. I'm eating fast food. Father you'd be so mad Welby Dad's why did you say I would say we both come from trump rallies. You're taking my grandfather. And great-grandfather walked in front of a train. Yeah Yeah my great-great-grandfather committed suicide by slow moving train while a crowd of onlookers shouted no yes. Nice it's one thing to bring light l.. Tell you Mike Mitchell puts the knife in you. Don't see traumatic. It's subtle. He does it with a smile but it goes so deep it goes has deepened at finds your heart. And that's the fucking Boston way. See that's how you pandered. Estonians cater to their cruelty. Sura Gina Pizzeria has been around since nineteen twenty six the X.. We hit up the location. That Mitch insisted on with good reason the original north end location. And are your buddy. Dano now who I consider a buddy came. You don't get to say that all right find your friend. Only Dano if you times came along and so so we we sat and we. We mentioned that we had a lengthy wait with you. We talked to a number of fans in line and it was a lovely experience and then we got in there. We had a table able for five. You went on you and Dan went on air and that was show related returned about forty five minutes later. We got inside there and we've sat down in a booth for five and we had had. I guess let's just get into our who's had this before and Hodgman. I know you've had it before Nicole. You've never had. I've had it once and that Pizzeria Regina that I had was more suburban. I think that I have been to the one in the north end but mostly I was getting like when we would come in to go to you. Know Quincy Remark Faneuil Hall getting it from Allston or something like that by the way who says it. Regina Pizza uses it. Regina Pizzeria Hashtag the right way. WHO SAYS WHO SAYS IT Heats Regina Hashtag the Boston way there you go? I never knew until tonight that it was Regina Pizza. That's his official name. The website is Regina Rian. Who's WHO's GonNa tell them they're wrong? Why does it fucking matter can't hear that it matters just saying how you feel good content? All right I'm sorry so.

One out of my back pocket here since nineteen twenty six say what the Napkins drenched suggesting. I soiled myself wait a minute. He can't soil himself. He's a computer. You can have it both ways. Sorry get your bitstream. Let's see yes. They just have a bunch of different information on here they just lie they talk about the four generations of the family that have been running it.

Damon graph is in the wings. We met when I moved moved to Brooklyn three years old right. Yeah so when we ask you to say what you like about Eatery Regina this punchline that you've been building up to for two hundred episodes two hundred two hundred some odd episodes they I as your friend reporter ask you to dig a little bit deeper than it tastes good. I'll elaborate. It's fantastic fair fair fair enough. It look it's the crust that does fresh it bubbles up to par except oven the brick oven. I Dunno it's oven and it's a brick oven. I'm sure oven would fight woodfire. It's Ol- Fire Nick. Where that nathen in can you told us was reeking of the ovens? You told us a rumored that was so clearly bullshit but you were worried. It might be true true. Who Tell tell us what your friend told you about? The ovens wasn't my friend. Who was my friend's DAD is one? It's it's one of my best friends ever Justin Kylie Justin Johnson. His Dad told me that it was a Nazi oven in Boston. They burn well. We should get them. What was that good job while such an obvious? My Uncle Works Nintendo tear lie. That you were honestly you're like I don't want to tell you guys this because it might be true that you're so worried about scaring where you told this. Recently this is going to be like as a child. No I think it was within this year. Justin Justin was it this zere. Hey Justin what's up Kylie how you doing. Oh Wow wait your show. I tried to one this news to get out. Let the record show.

That's your best friend. He's all the way up there. You're down here. I apologize to whom he did say those please. I said sorry says no problem go get him. It is just amazing. I'm not I hope you understand and don't murder me I'm just pointing. There's a little known thing about the Boston accent. which just ending words that end with an A.? Giving them a little are the turn at the end like dinner fish. Yeah that's all I. o Swat stickers sticker is what I heard it also in different countries that can mean a different thing. I don't think I don't think he'd Oh. No Oh man shown. Aw never go down this road well. That's forced occurs in ancient symbols. Thank you leave. It originated in India. I'm not completely sure so instead. Yes you are correct. Thank you and look. You're the only people who will ever hear this. You Song about you. Edit this shit out you saw gave thumbs up thank you John. Like it. Make make edited out and then send tape so I can send it to Dave Matthews. God I don't know what you said I don't WanNA WANNA know. This is boomer. FACEBOOK memes get started some baseless rumor. Also I heard the pizzeria. Regina has a child trafficking singing ringing. The Jeffrey Epstein was at a table with eight and boss I I will. I will give my thoughts and on the cheese pizza. While so your favorite order Comet Ping Pong all right come on she's I t's pizza's. This is not my favorite. I usually like some toppings although good cheeses a good baseline for evaluating a places quality. I had the cheese pizza once before when we went to pizzeria. Regina Regina I think it would have been more of a reveal if this was the first time I'd had it by understanding. There's a place you're very protective of. You wanted to both experiences. So he took me on a prior occasion or during the chain Jane. What are you doing this cheese pizza the slice you personally selected elected for me to have? This is true. That was the best slice of cheese pizza. I've ever eat God. I'm GONNA tear up. That's all I ever wanted from. This podcast really is delicious. Every observation you made his gregory. The brushes pushes US great. I loved it as a little jar to. It's it's got like the the great amount of dough it's like thin but not too thin and a little bit of crusty dipped in that Louis Sasa acid. It's it's a wonderful way to finish out your slice. Yeah it's great the cheese pizza. There is great. It's greasy but not too greedy not do greasy absolutely and and I think that Pepperoni with white onions. Not the Combo I would get there. They Clark I'm saying trying your order. I think this was a very good execution of that and I and I think that you know the loaded with pepperoni. They're not skipping on the PAP which I very much appreciate away. I'm see both both those pizzas pizzas. I thought were were dynamite. Hodgman Nicole any thoughts on those two. Those two large beats is. Would you like to go. I sure I mean yes. Here's here's what I'm going to say we have not brought up the other small. Oh pizzas that. We got which was a vegetarian. I was using. I'm sorry you isn't as a reference. They changed tab to the descriptions. We got a vegetarian. Ah which is the premium vegetarian veira which is Mozzarella mushrooms peppers onions black. Fresh Basil marinated tomatoes. Artichoke hearts we also got a white a white pizza for Cheese Bianco Pizza and then the jump button that was me. I got the jump and yet you want to read the Jumba description right. It's pepperoni Regina Sausage. Salami Mushrooms peppers onions fresh Basil Mozzarella cheese anchovies. Upon request did request they call it their finest finest creation and those three small pizzas and it may simply be the curse of the small pizza underwhelmed. Yes I agree. They were overloaded with things. It was my fault because I ordered this GIAMBATTISTA which is like. Let's throw everything on there and it was a little bit soggy augie delicious but it was just an underwhelming yeah and sometimes happens without Veggie. Heavy pizza is that it just like it gets the moisture exactly. Uh Oh God. I'm sweating I thank you to go to the bathroom before the show and now I feel it's like Chekhov's gun you have to go off before the show because you are loaded. What a nightmare to see in the toilet in front of everyone my family and friends and my hometown to the toilet in the center of the stage? Your mom is already in the wings watching you you might as well bring this to full marriage. uh-huh yeah I think it'd be alright with everyone watching you. I'd be a little embarrassed but if I had to do it I could do it. I wouldn't want to wouldn't be my preference stick shit in front of friends and family. We could do it. Yeah of questions asked if I even have to go and say you WanNa watch the good time Nicole your pizza thoughts and we can open it up to everything. At this point I thought at the cheese pizza was probably one of the best cheese pizza that I've had it was really ooh good. The Joe was great. There was like a crunch to it. There was like enough enough cheese that I was satisfied but it wasn't super overwhelming. I did love that fucking juice. That was good which uses greatly reduces good and then there is fucking ladle of other juice that olive oil and hot pepper. That comes on almost every day was good and then I don't usually go for onions on pizza but that was like less fucking dude it and I really liked and it was a really great combination. I agree the little pizzas. I think they were trying to do a little too much on the little repeats. Yeah maybe if they were large they would have been better but it did say could hurt could be cheaper overwhelming but the the for Maggio blankie you for why easy. Yeah cheese was I close your. Id you basically now. You can't find the. I closed the TAB EBB so quick to the TAB before. Did you close the town. I don't know it's okay. Go on you're GonNa ran the itemize receipts the four cheese. Bianco go okay. I thought that was really good. I love that one size. Didn't taste your vegetable one because mushrooms are not for me and then I didn't tastes the intro me. One because anchovies are the double too salty for not a good time. I answer Chevy's are obviously a dividing point for people some people yes people most people know but I think anchovy clicked into a pizza is the greatest flavor I've ever had in my mouth. Greatest Flavor you've ever had in your mouth in Pete's and I'm talking about food term. Who out there likes anchovies? HASHTAG can Shoghi. What the hell the floor read? This is insane to me. I don't Know My Boston people. This is fucked up. I will say that I I I agree you were right to pass up that Veggie one because it was the least good of. It's the one I ordered. I'll admittedly and it was the least good of the pizzas. The I'd like the White Pizza quite a bit I liked the show he's worked with an anchovy fan. I'll take him. I like how soft they are. Officially they are. Thank you double Reed. I'm so glad glad to be on demand can't Jovi Amen our answer what's the Anti anchovy can't show the or can the end Jovi Oh oh boy can Novi Christ ought to this. I can't Jovi. I grew up eating gene pizzeria. Regina I have a very deep fond memory of my memory of it was the sauce was was a very deep red color. There was almost a perfect balance of cheese and and flexible burnt type material and bubbly tennis and this flat beautiful field. I thought about it many many times. It's been years since I've had it. Now say this original the location which I flashed memory to going to when I was little kid. This pizza which is the original place is a little bit different than the sort suburban. Sure places where I've gotten it. I used to go in the south shore. Plaza was the one I used to go to a bunch. When I was younger there was used to have a sit down restaurant at one point with the with an oven and everything? Well I mean they always have fought was the quality of the pizza different. It was good. No that one was given it was like the actual sit down restaurant. It was it was skewed right. The good ones have the Nazi Ovens I. I will say that even though Oh these pieces of the original this original location. We're a little bit lumpy or a little bit more. Misshapen a little bit more authentic and woodfired. I remember That sauce has very distinct flavor profile. It's deep it's complex. It's fruity that I've tasted anywhere else before. Or since it brought me right back to childhood and sent me straight forward to the future because nostalgias doxycycline boasts and I thought everything was in perfect balance. I will also say that. They're condiments are impeccable. They have the garlic Oregano the salt pepper. which is really important important to me on a pizza? It's not for everyone but I really love black pepper on the pizza all on the table. You don't have to go up to a counter to get things. Yeah that's share with anybody else. US As you pointed out Nicole this enormous carafe of olive oil bill with infused with Hot Chili peppers. which is amazing so fucking and then then off the venue you order the Louis juice which sounds pornographic but is is what was so strange wider? Got Some go before I knew what it was. You fill up my big GULP. Please give it to me. Direct from the source Lou easier. Is this the Real Louis or a standard. I can tell the difference but but this was as you say olive oil garlic Oregano like infused in little little plastic cups. But it was more than that and when you had that to dip the crust into to like was suspect it was a spectacular. You've come my nerves quite a bit and I will say this. I cannot in in good conscience say that the slice of cheese pizza while exemplary was the best slice of cheese pizza. I've ever because well L.. Well because the best slice you've ever had Brooklyn Public Library. One thousand nine hundred burn off but I will say without reservation that the PEPPERONI and white onion pizza well done is the best slice of pizza I've ever had in my life and I am not. I am not pandering. Do you or Boston. Even though I'm better at it than I I made a note of it. I said Pepperoni and onion. Among the greatest slices the best slice it was the company could not have been greater then Dan to town like I was a prince teno left dental left before the pizzas game but Dano laughed because we had we had a crazy whirlwind. Finish Your Your Thoughts Osmond but we had a crazy whirlwind and we ended up with the Mitch had the all the merge that we were selling tonight that's right Indiana's Indiana's car Denno left to take them didn't have a slice of pizza to take the Merch to the venue. That's right so that it would be here in time while we sat there and ate pizza. That's right the Ford. Dano left said do one thing for me take a couple of pepperonis. Wrap wrap them up in some leftover crust. Run them through the spicy oil and enjoy that for me and I did it and it's the best sandwich I've ever had. How how amazing your hero he is? He's great can we just talk about how you packing up the pizza. Yeah this became and boy. I just didn't understand why you were trying to stack them on top of each other and you're letting all the touch you were touching all the ones that didn't need to be growing crossed everywhere and it was wild. I couldn't believe it so I've never met. I'm a big fan of Nicole's from the podcast and her own comedy. Also I have a book called Medallion Status Coming Out October fifteen but we never met on. Even though I'm a fan we had never met her. You don't have to yell it again. I acknowledged you. So we're just yelled nailed it truly if you feel it here. It's the bane of my existence. I don't understand why people yell at me. I was fucking there. You serve my enemy fucking hate you yelled nailed it but you screwed it just a little handyman. We've never but though I am a fan we had never met before and I feel like we had a real moment of connection and clarity already about who we were as evening drew to a close and we ordered more pizza than we possibly stomach. We Order Five Pizza Beats and I saw and what I saw was five pizza trays with about a third of a pizza on each and then each one rounded out by I dead skeletons of crests and I was like this cannot stand we have to separate these crests from these pizzas immediately. We need to get everything together. Organized is and catalogued as soon as possible because this is chaos and I cannot handle it so I'm like let me get all of these uneaten pizzas onto this trey and you get all these uneaten crusts off to this trey and I was following my own psychosis and as I was doing it. I didn't realize I was triggering. Your psychosis yes. I because you laid one slice on top of another slice and I was like the slices can't mix separate but equal. You know they cannot be together author like that. It's not right but that was my last nickel that was my last maneuver. No I don't want you to say that I was playing pizza. JENGA FAIRLY EH. I was saying them in carefully. I was try very hard to recreate a whole pizza and there was one leftover and I put it on top of another slice. I feel great about it but I have a confession. I too was mad internally as you did it and then I was like. He's our guests became here. Do this show for us as a favor. Don't Yell L. At him about the pizza crazy. Stick up for me being. You should've said me too. Fat People winning but now we know what time is it eleven thirteen so now are we now. We know that the half life on Mitch's anger expression of the greatest defense he can possibly imagine which mistreating Reading Regina's pizza is about five hours. I just like his own poop for five. Rather take care of himself but cut it out. I'm so sorry to both of you. I Apologize Okay thank you. I don't know if I accept your apology. Oh come on do I accept your polity. That was so I wasn't really paying attention to what was happening with that situation. But I'm audran because you stack on top of pizza then it gets in the refrigerator and then it stuck together and then what happens. Oh Yeah No. I'm not no okay. But that wasn't that was the last. I don't WanNa go through visit this but that was you. Were mad from the beginning. What were you mad at specifically what did I do wrong so I don't do this again because I like you saw? Wow Wow do you wanna know really what my issue was is is that I did want anyone touching the pizza I want it myself. It was territory. Think strictly right. I went to like a bulldog mode right ownership mode. Yes Sita. I'll decide how to arrange this pizza in your mind. Yes that's exactly what it was fine and then he did put up another cy speeds speech. I got very mad and you know that pizzas backstage. You can eat it tonight and when you do you'll know I touched everyone of those. The guys we gotta get to our. We gotta get to our final thoughts on on Regina Pizzeria pizzeria routine. Excuse me so. Let's go down the line. We'll start with you. Hodgman you've been you've been very colorful in your description of your experience Let us know your closing argument and give us your fork. Scores zero to five forks Europe hydrogen God. Well I don't I mean I. I may have put the cart before the Horse in saying that the pepperoni and and onions sliced was the greatest pizza. Pizza I've had in my life but I stand by it and how I don't know how I could give it less than five forks. Nicole buyer. I had a wonderful time. I didn't mind waiting the Mana time I waited because the food was fucking worth it. I'M GONNA give it four fucking love. Yeah pieces that I've had. That's like not deep dish. It was so fucking good. Wow I will allow it Mike Mitchell the way we know what you're going to say but but please give your thoughts on on pizzeria region. Remember that this is for posterity. This is a chance to express yourself. There's is an old nursery rhyme. I love where this is going Pizza Pizza Pizza Pie. If you eat it you will die if you die. Cry Pizza Pizza Pizza Pie if I were to die after that slice of pizza I'd be the happiest. CBS Man Alive. Wow and I would cry and you will cry. Is that a real nursery rhyme. Well Boston. Everyone's favorite food is pizza pizza. You'RE GONNA die and it's not it's obviously not because we're worried about obesity. It's mostly that we're worried about people. Having pleasure. We got new to Excell excell shorts. They were gone instantly. I heard yeah still plenty of smalls and mediums available. Also Pizzeria Regina it's just a staple it's it's been around for almost one hundred years. The ingredients and the pizza represent the best in the city of Boston. And I know a lot of people give shit to this city and I love this city and I think that the pizza represents the people. It's five forks for me. It's easy to say I'm not pandering. It's the best pizza I've ever eaten in my entire life. It's not a lie and I've eaten a lot of pizza nick as you know right. That's that's the best we all know. Now you just said it was the Best Pizzeria Regina Napkin. I've ever read all right nick. Europe Eh ruin this if you want as I mentioned it was a three hour experience from when we arrived to win. We're done it's their fault. It's not just that was just. Oh Boys Fan yes it was. You already don't like them. I liked I. I like our fans. I don't understand them. Show them shout out to John and Stephanie. Who offered to let us cut? But we could not do it. That's right tired. Ah Yes. They're they're they're lying companions. Who one of whom was a big fan of Nicole's podcast called why we did not cut? I was proud of that. We didn't cut no. We waited and it was a lengthy experience and was it worth it. That's what I'm weighing in a vacuum. No but in this place is important to my friend. Mitch and John Hall John. Hodgman said I like you. Mitch I love you. Wake to share this experience. Release the opening because you about to die EH. You're you're a movie Mitch. Not Casting a movie we have a big show. Oh for you here in Boston the way that should end its we should cross fade now to Mitch in the booth at Three Regina with ambulance lights flashing on his as he dies from a heart attack. This is this. Is the end of Brazil. Zillow this is your fantasy got cast Chris Pratt movie love. Also I couldn't. I couldn't make eye contact when I said I love so clearly have work to do on myself. But that's not beside. The point is going to say this. This place is important to you. We went a couple of times the first time we went when I loved it and I didn't tell anyone what I thought. I didn't even tell you but acted normally and this visit. I loved it. It's delicious. It's great in the interest of this. PODCAST I would like to visit another location and see how it stacks up as a chain but for the the purposes of this to where we've been going to one location and evaluating the food at that place as a representation of the chain as a whole and as far as Pizzeria Regina's Regina's food that was presented to us tonight as far as this pizzas. Stacks up amongst the other chain food. We've had welcome to the Platinum Plate Club or genome uh-huh the I was worrying the whole time. Mister cough. His Bella Check Hoodie to reveal a regina pizzeria. t-shirt it should say platinum play club that would have been cool instead. There's just titi sweat by the way everyone saying. I didn't Know Regina uh well read is a good. It says the chain in the right order. It says the chains name in the right order on. The T shirt says Regina Pizzeria. Someone gave it to me I wore. It's fine guys. That was three. It's time for same. We've got a foodstuff and beverage. We're GONNA decide if you put it in your mouth and or down your throat. It's drank or steak or snack or or whack you can have upbringing this now You in the Great Dano procured all of this for us and show let us know what we're about to be tasting. We've got two things here one from basically the last Brigham the Ice Cream Parlor Quincy I bought three raspberry lime rookies and I poured them into this weird thermostat. My mom found in the basement. We what is aridity. Don't know my put icing at first and then also mean Dano it went this is a. This is a big competition between these two places modern. Pastry and Mike's Pastry the two sides we're GONNA say okay. Which one's better modern a lot of people say modern another thing about this raspberry lime rookie? I asked Dida indeed works at the ice cream parlor. Show too I said Peter I said I'm GONNA I'm GonNa put this in a thermos and we're going to drink it later on stage. I said if I agit little soda water to it will that be okay. And he said Oh no he said it's going to taste awful and he said it will be flat and it won't taste good but about that will be for us to decide. This looks to me as Nicole. Boring it out of this thermos that you brought into these Red Solo Cups. It looks completely melted ice cream. It's a drink. Isn't it kind of Grenada. No it's a it's a drink okay. A Lime Rickey is a combination the nation of fresh lime juice soda water and sugar and then Raspberry Radic Flavor that's Osmond nailed. I remember having this at Brigham when I was putting you can taste it and then if you think you need to close soda you can. Is it not currently did that before you Porsche. I washed myself. I took it in the shower with me now. Now you say this from your basement this is the thermoses urban from my basement. The Raspberry Lime Rickey so got at ice cream parlor I put it in this thermos. It's at Dan's car for the last six hours. It's possible possible that these spider eggs are part of the original. Brigham friends. Let me tell you I think it's Damn I'm good. Is it supposed to have a little effervescence. That's what you're saying right if you add a little soda water to it. But that's pretty tasty. Can I avalon. Pellegrino I'm going to try that. Try and plus thank you. Thank you all right here. WE GO I. I understand what it's supposed to taste like it's it's like a Shirley Temple yes exactly. It's May Shirley temples with vodka. It's it's a good drink. I don't know if this is a thing that I would ever order Because I'm going to have this much sugar. Give it to me in cream form but was I. Don't I don't have as much I don't I try to limit my sugar intake because even fatter than already am mm-hmm if I had it because I have a terrible sweet tooth so I don't have a lot of sweet beverages if I was going to go to a desert plays an ice cream parlor. I'm going to have some ice cream. I wouldn't have. I wouldn't have this drink but I think I think it's good. I'M GONNA give it a drank drank as well as nick. I got news where you got your cream coming to you right now. Hell Yeah wrap this first. One is modern pastry. I'll give it a drank as well. Nicole you're saying stink for the Raspberry Lime Rickey. I liked it after I added handed the club Soda because then I was like that was supposed to taste like does. That's how that's how it would be served. It's not traditional to have a raspberry lime murky that's been stored in a car but yeah I think it's a fun summertime beverage and I usually travel with vodka so like I would probably add the vodka. Gutu it may sound but you so you were saying you prefer Shirley Temple full of vodka. Yes that's an extreme as well. Ooh Second Oh good I like you. We've got these modern pastry cannolis. That's what we're eating cannolis plane. We're doing plane verse. Explain to display boxes well. Mike based recipes have what windy crew king. Something full last couple hours. Dana was drinking the library for the last couple of hours. A rock bottom. Say something that makes sense. I've tasted the modern pastry. Can I is it weird for me to hand. The leavings of this to someone in the crowd is more on a bite from the other end. Travelers missing. Or I'M GONNA give it to this guy this enthusiastic person. This one's fucking sat all right. I've tasted them both all right. Time for Mike's Pastry so the differentiate between these two smaller one is the modern. That's right right. The fat or one is the. Mike's Mike's has some girth. Yeah unlike Mike Mitchell. Your father's learning so much. Jesus Christ the other differences this one has more of a cheesy sort sort of character to it. Yes yeah I think so. The cream is a little different. Yeah I have a vote my votes in yes. Modern Pastry wins remain. They're both good though. They're both good but yeah I think I'm GonNa go with a a single cam. mockumentary style pastry modern pastry. I think that's the one that's better. I don't know I like Mike's Hog Ugh. This one's great. I think Mike like it's fatter. It's more fun to put my mouth. I think the consistency is a little a little bit better on the cream. And I like that. It's like the what is this. Caisson is thicker. I like this one. This one's for May hey fair enough I say leave the gun. Take the Cannoli the coal. That's a reference to the movie. The Godfather China revealed earlier. I've never seen it. Never seen it once favorite movie I would like I would like to say that when you said I have not seen the Godfather You notice that I did not say it was very kind. I know it's fine if you don't see the Godfather it's fine if you've never seen the godfather that's nice thank you don't let the dudes in your life. Shame you doc. It's fine. I got cream on my mic over. Here sure the MoD modern can always better than the ow we liked. Better proportion yes I think so. And it's still. They're both delicious but the modern only a better balance of now cream and what we call casing in the American commuted the pastry the shell shell okay all right. Okay I gotTA EH screaming. Shell waiting for your moment. We've tried to do a lot of what Mike Touris. Okay wow good very. Everyone's it's getting angry. Everyone's really that I like you guys.

Because of the phallic reasons I wasn't thinking taken that but sure she's any answers from from Hodgman or Nicole. Probably it'd be Bacon because I'm fat delicious. I don't know that I it's hard for me to think when I food that I deal with. But when the person shouted out manning's I immediately wanted some manning's a and that is very important food from has been throughout my life. We bit because white people seem to fucking love manning any word y'all have salads built around man as wild like a tuna fish salad so much I love Mayo and I when I listen when I was maybe ten or eleven. I was in the kitchen making making a snack for myself and I said to my mom who is no longer alive in the other room. I said I think I'd like to have a bowl of manny's and she said don't do that because I'm a good boy I didn't now my mom's dead. I am on stage to know that was a joke I was making. I just got distracted. I was thinking about having a bullet. I've not had not yet had a bowl of mayonnaise would you what would you put in it like biggles the Manny's Nannies in the bowl with a spoon. Sorry I didn't know if he wanted to spice it up. Would you draw a mustache on the Mona Lisa. Got A Bola Mayo. I mean there are very few things that give me a more sense that everything is right in the world than opening a fresh Jarve Mike. God Dear God stay in your house. Yeah Multiple Jars Multiple Brands Charm. Man I to have multiple brands of managing my place. What are you rocking jars? You know I have zero groceries in my fridge I got. I got a classic best foods because they do have some nostalgic Helman's west of the west of the Mississippi. Yes absolutely how helmets out here. I've got we've got a trader Joe's Mayo and then we've also got. I'm forgetting the brand right now. Sir Kensington Mayo. which is is back the whitest that circle? Yeah that's A. That's a Meta thing. Because they know how white they are right. That's that's a bespoke manning's. They started making five years ago. And it's got a guy with a monocle on the label. I I'm rocking Helman's and just got from my father-in-law. Three three jars of Duke's Mayonnaise. which is is a southern? Oh hold on a second really gifted jars of Mayo. My Daddy in law knows what I like. I do him confused Hughes Nicole. This is wild. And you're GONNA tear through all three of US three. Yes as I get home tomorrow. Images acting confused like Mayo isn't what's in his Soda Cup. That summer tabled the question. I Beg your pardon. It's ranch dressing the Sun Pirata. Hi Sean Sean Show. Are you related to Tom Perotti. He's my my my cousin. My cousin leftovers little children. Big Fan. He's he's he was a writing teacher of mine and a dear friend the writer. Are you related to any Baratas from New Jersey. I'm yeah well. Tom Swift CRANFORD NEW JERSEY. He's from is from Garwood. Middletown a New Jersey and my Algebra teacher was easy but no I have a question. Yeah do you have a ball of Barada. I could have man the best. What's your question? I'm I'm here for my Bachelor Party. I I know it's sad. This is the traditional late to end the bachelor party from Sturt as wondering. What are some of your guys favorite like wedding? Hors d'oeuvres serves and do you prefer a buffet or a sit down dinner at a wedding. Yeah whoa great question. Obviously the audience is. It's very energized. I'll tell you I'll tell you a wedding out by like Bacon wrapped. scallops collect scallops skull up. I came home. I said scallops and my mum got mad at me. This is true scallops Bacon wrapped scallops. right Ma. She left he's gone. I don't blame her. It's very late right. I can answer your odors. Quite the the odor's question. I'm a little mapping trouble finding an answer but answer the second question boy as they've been more weddings I've learned to enjoy the buffet because I thinking in a meal. You're more likely to get things that are individual items that you're less excited about whereas in a buffet. You can just like well. You know what I really liked the spread red here but hey I can load up on salad and there's maybe one protein that it can get. We'll take me home and yeah the these roles with butter. That'll be fine. You know. That's that's my feeling. Many person is thought at a wedding. There's maybe one protein that can take me home. The I like to order order at dinner. Nick Real I never get it wrong. I always get it right. Get it right and then if I got it wrong disaster the right one usually at a wedding you have a choice of three. Yeah a vegetarian fish right and what I do is if I see the one is better than the other. I lied to them so that. Bring it out and you'll be like oh actually had the chicken. Yes you'll make a swap so massively inconveniencing service worker right because you can get a little bit of everything. Yes and then the order. I don't really care as long as there's like an open bar situation before dinner right so I can get real real fucking hammered. Enjoy whatever's at the buffet dance for a while and then after a food truck. And you're like that's right. You'd again right. That actually is when they went a food truck or something arrived. There's there's someone like just making tacos from the casual Audran that the food truck relate arrival leading I think is a very west coast thing. Oh interesting that anyone here understands what you're talking about. Because in in in the New England area ED wedding most important thing is open bar through basically. The food is an inconvenience. The Gino another. Good thing you can do my friend. Joey is getting married in October. And you just ask him because he's tasted it came. I was like what are we gonNa Chicken or the steak and he said the chickens better. I got the chicken yeah. I think it's very traditional on the east coast to have a a sit down dinner. Yeah and I think that that's wrong. I think a buffet is the better way to serve a large group of people because there are more choices. Yes the food like you're basically creating a bunch of different casseroles that are designed to sit around on a steam table and get better as they get older sure as opposed that this dumb I'm F- fillet or or chicken. Breast has been specially made for you. It's airplane food so I agree I. And as far as in order of his baby lamb chops all the way. Wow Wow sean thank you for. The question congratulates. What do Jiang plans for doors for your for your your wedding and we figured that out? No are you the bachelor. Yeah not I'm getting married. June Grasso Oh yeah. I'm sorry I should have made that clear. Thanks thanks John Joe is is up last. Hi John Thank you for waiting. What's your question? Hi there Sorry super nervous okay. So this is the lowest ever been for you. I assure you boundaries are hard so when I was growing up my mom always bought me. Shitty White Castle Filet O.. Fish right before like like music competitions so I was just wondering before any sort of performances or competitions or I guess trying to gain your parental parents love. What kind of food do you associate associate with that? We can connect John. This is crazy first of all because we just had white castle. Mitch and I did reviewed it New York last night. Yes so it's very freshener. freshener brain specifically the filet of fish. It sucks which was awful. It's so just fucking dog shit. I can't believe that was posted on just before a or passion reward board. Okay she. She thought the fish was good for your brain durable. I'm I'm so we all raise ever put like five dollars and a hat for his therapy. I'm willing to I take it. I will say that once before by the way. What did you play? I play the piano piano very cool. I played the I I played woodwinds. Not Just Double Reeds. I also played single reeds when I was younger. How real a clarinet concert? You mean when you were younger when when you were less sophisticated. Is that what you're saying. Yeah when I grew older I put aside child childish things no I did. You're placing but I played clarinet when I was younger. And I had chili cheese fries. One of my favorite foods like a gigantic plate of Chili Cheese fries. Just just before. I had to play a clarinet concerts and I remember specifically my parents saying. Is that going to hurt your stomach and I was like no. Ah onstage like like four measures into the performance. I had the sensation that Mitch has been experiencing for this entire show. Aw the meet and greet happening in a bathroom by the way I aw share that clarinet with any other players breathed a lotta spitting chili cheese fry breath into it when I to clarinet lessons. Yes at the all Newton Music School in Newton Massachusetts studying under the director of all music. School Paulette Bows my dad had would pick me up and he would always bring me a big Mac. And I have such fond associations with the big Mac for that it was not the competition competition. Isn't everything as long as I win. And I thought I stopped eating big MACs for awhile because is our kids hate McDonalds so much what the hell I would like want to go there. And they'll be like no please. Daddy don't don't go there. It smells so bad. Don't go and one time. They don't like chicken nuggets. They don't they don't care for any of it. They don't like the French fries go. I don't like a toy with their food toys.

Getting Discomfortable with Mean Girls: Part 2

"This week's episode is actually a video. If you prefer to listen to the audio only version you can just keep listening to this right here and now but if you WANNA watch watch the video look in the show notes for a link or go to comfortable dot net getting discoverable with mean girls part two slut shaming. I'm totally lost can any help me but it wasn't lost. I knew exactly what was Norberg was talking about. Its effect oriel so you multiply each one by n wrong. Is that the summation yeah those same thing wrong. You're so wrong. Thanks I get it now. This is just a nice example of the things things that we do to fit in or to connect wherever and a Halloween party my friend Chris Tonight GonNA come. That flyer admits one person only so. Don't bring some other guy with you in the regular world. Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for Candy. Halloween is the one nine year when a girl can dress like a total slut. No other girls can say anything about the hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal is one of the ways that we shame women. The most is around their sexuality words like slut or whore are all designations of the shame that a woman is supposed to feel when she is overtly sexual in any way but at the same time it feels great to be seen to be desired to be attractive so young women are naturally caught in this tension between trying to explore their sexuality to celebrate it and trying to avoid the shame of being labeled a slut and even within this film you can see the societal shaming happening the film itself. L. Seems to be saying that the girls are dressing slutty. It fits right into Western culture to be blaming women for having any sexuality at all all like as if their sexuality this special precious prize that needs to be hidden from everyone and only give into their husband at the right time in the same way that Regina creates all of these rules to control control her plastic minions society creates all of these rules to control its citizens by connecting moral opinions to that unpleasant guttural feeling of shame you can really profoundly control how people act and it isn't surprising that the rule society creates are often designed to keep the powerful in power to keep the Regina's in control and fortunately no no one told me about the slut rule so I showed up like this. Why are you trust the scary following. ooh. But what's fascinating is that on Halloween. The rules suddenly change. Suddenly it's okay to dress quote unquote slutty and it goes goes to show how arbitrary shame really is because. Katie doesn't know that she's supposed to dress slutty at Halloween but not any other day of of the year now once again she is hit with a hilarious degree of embarrassment and shame and it goes to show that shame is not objectively real real. The rules of shame are completely context dependent and they are always shifting just like culture and they are always relative to who you are around and who you are trying to impress or connect with or belong with it goes to show how when you get controlled by shame. You are giving all of your power away you. You can't just follow one set of morals. You have to look around constantly and say well. How do I fit in with this person. How do I fit in with that person. How do I fit in now breath on. Didn't anybody tell you you're supposed to wear a costume shut up. I need to talk to you. You know that girl Katie. She's cool invited her tonight. We'll be careful because she has a huge crush on. You really honey no because she told me she does everybody. It's Kinda cute. Actually she's like a little girl. She writes Oliver her notebook. Mrs Aaron Samuels Meals and she made this t shirt that says iheart Aaron and she wears it under all her clothes alcohol well who can blame her. I mean you're gorgeous and okay look. I'm not saying she's a stalker but she saved this. Kleenex you used and she said she's going to do some kind of African Voodoo with it to make you like her. This was it. Regina said she would talk to Anthony and now she was. I know she's kind of socially retarded in weird but she's my friend so just promise me. You won't make fun of her. Courses can make fun of her. How could you Annotate Regina. She was such a good ed first of all. It's not surprising that the go-to insult here once again is slut. It is one one of the most shaming terms that you can hurl at a woman. What are you doing? You broke up with me. That's crazy bird. I break up with you so hot while many people might just dismiss Regina as a sociopath or a capital in narcissist or just talks court evil. I actually do not think any of those. Things are true well. She's definitely a narcissist but I don't think she has a narcissistic personality disorder. I think we are much too quick to assume in our society that someone who behaves in this kind of way has some kind of big personality disorder when in fact very few people statistically actually have those big notorious personality disorders if every guy date turns out to be toxic or bipolar or a sociopath. That's just incredibly unlikely the truth is I think. All of these behaviors can actually be explained by shame. I think that Regina actually has humanity to her but because she believes that all of her value is wrapped up in her position on this hierarchy archy and because shame is literally connected to a feeling of life or death it feels of the utmost importance that she defend her position. Shen on this fictional hierarchy. It's just that Regina's view of the world is so skewed that she has to act in these ways that we would call bitchy shame brings out the inner bitch in us because it makes us think that things that aren't that necessary are actually of life or death importance it is of life or death importance to Regina's subconscious that she stay above Katie on the social hierarchy or she will lose all of her value her worth as a human and her ability to be loved so regina can be really nice at one moment really connective really human but if you cross cross an invisible barrier that suddenly threatens her position or makes her feel shame then she will lash out at you and she will try to cut you down down and that may feel bipolar it may feel sociopathic it may feel toxic and evil but actually it makes complete sense when you understand her world view as as shaped by shame. Why is Regina George like this well first of all. It's in the culture but more than that I'm sure that it it comes from her family. The culture in her family is probably completely status driven. They're very wealthy. We know that the mother is obsessed with youth living vicariously okay through her daughter. It's clear that no one has ever said no to any of Regina's demands so she is the little princess who runs the show in their status. Addis driven life and the truth is she just doesn't know any better. She doesn't know that there are better strategies in fact. She doesn't even know that there are other strategies. She doesn't know what she doesn't know because she is so brainwashed and conditioned by culture and shame he'd never felt this feeling before. Can you hear my heartbeat in my ears. J. Stomach felt like it was going to fall out by buck. Shame this lump in my throat like after you dry swallow a pill Jayme aided regina hated her and that is all shame. Katie is literally in shame at this very moment technically. What she is actually feeling is her threat response? It's that is the ancient reaction in our brain we share with other animals even lizards and what it feels like is our heart beating out of control our face ace flushes our eyes water and that horrible feeling in her gut like her stomach is. GonNa fall out of her but that is shame that is the horrible horrible uncomfortable excruciating unpleasantness shame completely connected to the disrespect she just experienced she just completely got humiliated in front of everyone or so it felt so her body is reacting as if her very life is in danger so when when you're in your threat response when you feel that crazy heart rate that flushing that that I watering if you look around and say wait is my life actually literally endanger singer. Am I in danger of dying in this moment. If the answer is no you know right away that you're threat response was triggered by shame and that threat response wants wants you to act in order to avoid that shame and there are a bunch of classic patterns pretending like nothing was wrong turned out to be surprisingly easy and Regina wanted me to tell that she was trying to hook you up with Erin but he was just interested in getting your back and that's not watching spots matter. Gina God no okay back when Katie I fell into shame at the party she immediately went into her flight reflex and fled the scene however instead of staying away from Regina and never hang out with the plastics again. She changed her strategy to one of denial and rebellion. These too often go together. Denial is when we pretend like. We're not feeling shame at all. It's usually so deep that we actually don't admit even to ourselves that we are feeling shame. We don't want anyone to know that they got under our our skin. It feels vulnerable feels powerless and once again if we admit that we were feeling shame it seems to be proving to everyone that we really are different bad and alone so one of the most common reactions to shame is to convince everyone including ourselves that we aren't feeling shame at all but of course it's deeply authentic and it breeds disconnection and resentment hair like that for hex a sexy push rush back Katie. We please Tom's heroic sexy pushback. Regina was dangling Aaron in front of me on purpose. I knew this would be settled in the animal world. That's not just how it would be solved in the animal world that is exactly how it would be solved in the human world when shame pushes us into our threat threat response. One of the most common reactions is our attack reflex but our attack reflex isn't always physical. We are more our savvy than that. In fact most of us have been socialized to feel so much shame around violence that instead of attacking someone physically we shift our attack reflex Alexa into the shame back which is to take the shame that someone made us feel or that we perceive them as having made us feel and we push it back onto them and that is exactly the strategy that Katy chooses in this case so she is no different than an animal. She's just doing it. In a much savvier human way the world ehrlich sexy pushback and a girl world all the fighting had to be sneaky her plan is to take take revenge against Regina and basically shame her back and topple her position at the top of the hierarchy and what I'd like to point out is that when you feel shame shame your threat response actually shuts down your prefrontal cortex which is the logical rational centers of the human brain. It's the part of the brain that actually makes us elevated quote unquote above other animals but when we go into our threat response when we allow it to control us it shuts the logical part of our brain off in order to conserve of energy and create swift action so obviously Katie has some use of her prefrontal cortex here because she's concocting this shame back scheme but she is allowing allowing her threat response to control her such that she is no longer thinking rationally. She's no longer thinking logically. She's lost her sense of humanity and compassion passion. When you allow your threat response to control your reaction to shame you are inevitably going to be outside of your integrity outside of your values so this is the moment point in the film. mean girls were. Katie loses her way. This is the moment in fact where she finally buys into the hierarchy. In order or to Shame Regina back. She has to play by the rules of the hierarchy in order to quote unquote win so it is in fact a deeply shaming aiming experience that pushes this character into action that creates conflict and drama of this whole movie. It is shame driving the show show from this point out. The film becomes a shame battle but it's not so easy to. Shame Regina George and this proves proves how arbitrary shame is once again everyone buys into this fictional hierarchy of human value and therefore they have to emulate anything. Regina Regina does the rules can constantly shift in Regina's favor as long as everyone is buying into this power structure as long as shame as telling them that they you have to conform with the quote unquote cool kits Marie talking to Janicki and she's so weird she just you know came up to me and started talking to me about crack back so pathetic. Let me tell you something about Janice an we were best friends in middle school. I know right. It's so embarrassing. I don't even whatever so then eighth grade. I started going out with my first boyfriend. Kyle who's totally gorgeous then he moved to Indiana and Janice weirdly jealous of him like ah I would blow her off to hang out with kyle she'd be like why didn't you call me back and I'd be like why are you so obsessed with me so then for my birthday party which was an all girls. Pool Party eight. I was like I can't fight you because I think you're less than I mean. I couldn't have a lesbian at my party. There could be girls there in their bathing suits. I mean right h she was a lesbian so then her mom called my mom and started yelling at her. It was so retarded and then strap does go talk to her when she came back in the fall for high school. All of over Harris Cutoff issues totally weird. Now I guess she's on crack and now we get to the back story the story behind the mean girl triangle at the heart of the film between Regina Janice and Katie who kinda get stuck in the middle. We'll never know exactly what happened for example. I assume home that the story of Janice being lesbian isn't the real reason that Regina kicked her out of the group that was in fact the strategy that she used to shame and destroy her. There's almost certainly another story there. Maybe it has something to do with Kyle Regina's first boyfriend who was gorgeous but moved to Indiana or maybe it was because has Janice was starting to become popular sort of like Katie or maybe Janice was never cool enough and as they got into High School Regina had to get rid of her. We'll never know but this is a heartbreaking story of using shame to destroy someone and end a relationship weird thing about hanging out with Regina was that I could hate her and at the same time I still wanted her like me. You've really good eyebrows. Thanks move same Gretchen. The meaner Lina Regina was to her the more Gretchen tried to win Regina back he knew it was better to be in the plastics hating life than an IBM at all because Regina's not evil when she gives you a compliment. It feels amazing even if you're not entirely sure if she means it she's one of those beautiful charismatic people that is a joy to be around when she feels like treating you nicely and so you get torn because she offers you these moments of connection then she also offers you this feeling of status but but then she can also be so cruel and I think all of that can be attributed to the way that shame and makes you kind of a dual personality because being with the plastics like being mm famous people look at you all the time and everybody just knew stuff about you that new girl moved from Africa. I saw Katie hair and wearing army pants and flip flops so I bought army pants and flip flops that kitty girls hot. She might even be Hotter Than Regina. George Santa's Helpers Doing Jingle Bell Rock entrenched theft Jason what time it's the right I've way go riding. They include this scene because not only is it one of the best set pieces of the entire film but I think it is also the moment that Katy finally overtakes Regina as the Queen Bee. It's the moment where she literally saves them from embarrassment with her leadership and talent and she also steals the show and Regina knows it but it's more than that it represents one of those moments when a crowd of people come together and has a shared spontaneous experience and it is one one of the best feelings that we can have as a social animal. It really feels like we're all in it together and it's kind of a blend end of belonging on steroids as well as awe and I think when you put those two things together what you essentially create is spirituality that transcended feeling of being part of something larger than yourself something good something joyful like going to a concert with five thousand people all singing being along to your favorite song or going dancing in a large group or to some degree going to a club or going to a movie on opening night where everybody's laughing winging cheering and crying at once or going to church you know literal spirituality and it's been shown that people who actually go to concerts regularly live longer longer and I think it's because this belonging on steroids is just such a healthy wonderful human experience gene flow. It seems to to be continued next week in part three

Say from this side of the pond down here in Australia. I'm different watching. I'm seeing what you're doing because a lot of what you do is what I do. ABSO- I'm really looking forward to getting into that today in this podcast but before we do that. Let's get to know you a little bit. Why don't you tell us where you're from absolutely I'm originally from Russia. I have been however here in the United States. I'm in California for the last thirty years so without really disclosing my age I grew up here. Let's say I grew up here I gave you as a child and y'All my family settled here and you know we start our in your life here and I a Put the roots down here and I've been a life and business strategist for the last almost twenty years at this point. How did you get into what it is that you do today? Hi What what was the. What was the catalyst that got you into it you know? I have always known since I was a child that I am meant for a specific purpose but I didn't know exactly what it was and that was extremely restless. It's like you know you're supposed to do something. But until you figure it out out and everything you do doesn't quite fit if that makes sense so I keep searching. It's kind of like me walking around with a key in my hand trying different doors to see which one I lost. It's such a good analogy. I love that Elegy. Yeah it was exactly that for me and because I knew was seven child that I was created for a very specific purpose to help people in one in a specific way. I didn't know which way but I knew very specific Williams supposed to be of service to people on a very high scale and I tried. Different things Just through work and things like that through communicating with people and nothing seemed right and when I was twenty four years old I mean I guess people are starting to calculate you. I was twenty four years old. I got a job at a company. Just basic AC bookkeeping accompanied that was going through chapter eleven reorganization for someone. Who doesn't know what that is? It's you through bankruptcy but chapter eleven actually can reorganize organized. You're not closing. You're asking the court permission to will give you some time in space to get back on your feet financially so to speak and what I realized the company was at at the end of the chapter eleven. There was somebody guiding them through the process. Because it's very difficult process to restructure company and I and I realized I belong in helping. CEO's restore their companies. And I you know I went to the owner and the owner was actually helping with the guy who was helping helping him reorganized. He was helping the other sets of customers in. I said I WANNA do what you guys do. I twenty four. I have no education barely needed through high school. There were supposed to hold me back in the last year but I think the did you don't WanNa have me there anymore. So went to college just to go there because everybody else this was going so I really have no educational formal training. I just knew that I found the thing that God made me. Four and dad was the fuel from us like a dog with my teeth in its bone and I kept going back to them for six months. The Guy who was reorganizing. The company was insane. I want a chance I and and if I suck and if I fail I'll never bother you again and I did this for six months. You know overrun no Ryan thing. They got exhausted of me and they finally said will give give your customer and if you can hang in there you can hanging there you know. It's whatever happens happens and the rest is history. I mean seventeen years later over well of one hundred companies easily over seventy chapter eleven cases reorganized. I mean there was a team of professionals attorneys CPA and other people but Yeah yeah that's how I got into it. That's a really awesome story. I love the start of it the way you always had a yearning to do something but you weren't sure what that was. When I was a little kid Iowa had a yearning to run around with a gun and kicking doors and I used to play up the local Bush with my mates and we have we play armies all? I'm doing all that and if I forward a couple of years and always in the in the military for better for the first part of my career for almost ten years so the whole my whole childhood I knew that I wanted to be in the military and I just went and did it and kind of got it out of my system which was really cool but on the other side of that. Oh as well my loss. Now that's all I ever wanted to do and achieved all the things that I wanted to do. And part of the reason actually goes in the Navy I out of the reason I left the navy to go and be in the army was I wanted to be in the army in the first place but the navy go. I've got a hold of me but I I would have stayed in the ninety but our went everywhere they went at the time I went to the Middle East are went around Asia win all around Australia and South West Pacific. There was nowhere else to go and all the sort of lock. Well what else is there. Let me go to the army and then as soon as I joined the army I went straight on operations and come back from that. I was like well that was it now. All right. We'll all my time and and it took me a long time to redefine myself and to find my feet as an entrepreneur in many different things. And as you say so I I love that analogy so much as they were walking around with a cane. You hand you put it in the lock in tune it and go. Oh I walk in kind of do this. This is all right. It's not really a career. It's it's not really what I wanted to do. But you know it's hot and you end up settling and you should never settle wrought. Yes I actually wanted to. That's a great point. I wanted to speak to that for a second I. I strongly believe that we're all created for a purpose. We all have a specific I call it a blueprint. We all have a blueprint and I urge everybody really take the time and find their. The reason is it's like you plug into the source. You plug into the outlet because if you can find that that will fuel you in the most difficult. Oh Times on your business journey that will be the d'Electricite that fueling the fire. That will keep you going otherwise you know being entrepreneurial journey so up and down and complicated and there's much more down than up and if you're not really in your purpose walk in which you're meant to do it can suck you can drain the life out of you pretty quickly and just kind of get you down. Things are not working out so I think we'll have a purpose in. I urge everybody to take the time and find find that. Because I'm telling you it's like fuel to the fire and there is nothing better than that one really interesting thing that happened to me. A module Ernie is. It's not so much about What I was passionate about you know people say well you pushing it about and build a business around that and you'll never work a daniel off? It's like maybe another have really been passionate about much except when always in the military. Because that's really what I wanted to do since I was a kid and then went on went and did that. Everything else was kind of. Look out of Herod's me and what I discovered was what you think that you'll passionate about actually might not be the thing that's driving driving you. You might like the idea of that but in actual fact you gotTa keep all along. Keep coming back to that analogy putting McCain lock and keep turning the K.. And eventually you find what it is that you will passionate about when you discovered what it was that you were going to. Do you found found my purpose here. This is pretty cool. was that something that you expected or was it. Just lock you really kind of motivated you up to help people and duly things because that seems like a really kind of an odd thing thing to be passionate about You Know I. It felt like I was home if that makes sense perfect. Yes yes and I knew that I was at the bottom of the hill so to speak and it was gonna be a long climb. Keep in mind. I'm twenty four no formal education at the moment I step into any company now of work with companies up to twenty million so they're not necessarily tiny businesses and months. So when I walk into a company where I seal bill who is maybe fifty sixty years old more than twice. My Age has five ten million dollars worth of debt. And he's about to Lucius House. He's about to maybe maybe get divorced. I mean there's so much stuff that happens with financial devastation. He's got twenty four year old telling him what to do. It was hard and people would ask you. What's the background? What's legisation and I would have to say nothing? Nothing nothing so I had a lot of challenges when I when I started going back to the previous Common Almond finding your purpose. I WanNa add that when you find your purpose these CIA it helps you get through the challenges. That what I'm talking because I knew I was the purpose. I knew that it couldn't get me down too long. That would get back up and go to work. But it certainly wasn't easy by any stretch and I had to prove myself for years. Maybe the last few years I really had to stop feeling like I had to prove myself because I was also older I had years behind. It was no longer twenty or thirty year old. You know it was a well. I'm forty one so you had. There are stop counting people because on saying seventeen your what do you want me. We can delete this. I'm just getting is better but yeah it was some. It wasn't easy at all as people can imagine being age in doing this this big of job but I never doubted that at that is my purpose because you think about this when a customer one of human human being comes to you and says thank you for saving my marriage because people think accompanies accompany companies not accompany. There's families involved. The there is my biggest client was three hundred fifty employees so think about a company with three hundred fifty employees goes out of business. How many people count on the paycheck? The men and women that work there their families it can be two three or four thousand people easy so that never escaped me responsibility so I I always understood the responsibility and the scale at which. I'm impacting so all by need people and that to me was a life worth living. It was always very important to have a life worth living so when I look at the end of the day I don't look back and say to myself. Well I piss dot away. That was the scariest thing for me to look back and say was a waste. And Yeah I kept Just kept him going as well. Those feelings will let beaut-beautifully articulated articulated and beautifully. Said as you know Regina this podcast is about doing whatever it takes going all in so if you could could you share share with us your biggest goal in story or stories and the lessons that you've learned from your commitment to success I Do you want business or personal because I think my biggest all in wasn't a personal side but yeah I'll tell you it was mm-hmm filing for divorce. I know we're going a little bit sideways but I told you at the beginning. Nothing is of the table. Everything is open for discussion Russian and People go through this all the time that it impacts their families too. I had a thirteen year marriage to kids and it wasn't a good marriage while working helping angle these people and all that stuff and when I say going while in we had a lot of stuff on properties all these things than I just When I was done I went home with my clothes in a trash bag in walked out with nothing from anything properties? Nothing talk about going all in and started my life F- from scratch with my daughter's literally five mostly opposite going out I'm out completely at. I'm done now. Yeah it can be. Yeah talk about you know going out but also going alert because I knew that I will not succeed in my life and it will not fulfill my purpose entirely Fi. Stay and I know. Oh this is a business. podcast Bud. What I'm talking about? People struggle with is sold along relationships and people tend to separate business and personal but the truth is it's all the same same thing the way you feel in your marriage your relationship. You're going to carry that either joy your poison into your company and whether you like it or not will bleed into the bottom line in a prophet ability of your organization fact you can't you can't separate the two because it's one person doing the both things you know business impersonal. So I think that was the biggest going all in. Yeah for in in more than one hundred episodes in the lost twelve months or solve this show of had hundreds and hundreds of messages and lots and lots of feedback and the vast majority of it is related to the topics that we talk about people. Tell me that I love the stories that we tell on the Golan Choline podcast I love the entrepreneurial. Business side of it. They love the health side of it. I want to know more about finance. And how do you go all in on new finance and doing all those things things and in all of that or looked at all of that in the last couple of seasons of this show and sort is something missing in all of that is something missing and I said to myself. The thing that's missing there is exactly what you said is more shows about relationships. Because you can't get your finances organized Wash Your Business Organiz your health we're gonNA laws and less you've got your home loss squared away with your PA cage. You've gotta be all in on that every single day and I often sigh on this podcast and in this youtube channel that you can't go all in on your business or your finance. So what do you doing unless Lsu got squared away at home and as a result of that created another subset of this show a cold relating as US and relating Aussies with a mighty wind alley mopey an alley. Elian Watch talk about old things relationships in how to get through those things and for the exact reason that you're talking about you can't right through and do whatever it takes tykes and go all in and you lost unless you've got it right at home. How long was it for you? You decided you packed your you. Pack your things in a garbage bag you got out they did you. Did you leave and get into car. Go Oh my God. I'm right down or did you don. I'm into something that was easy for. You was really hot. It was really hard because I never wanted to become the statistics. This statistic of divorce marriage was something very sacred it to me and I I suck around. I mean really as long as I could I think looking back now. I'm surprised but when I said I do. I really meant that I did you know and I wanted to. I hate living with regrets so for me before a plus I also they'll have a personality to go back and forth whether other personal relationships or business if I make a decision it's pretty much final because my decisions are always final I take time making them because I'm not wishing wash I'm going to today. I know my decision servier black and white very solid. Once it's need it's set in stone so I knew that I take my time making the decision but once I did it I have. I started my life from absolutely nothing which kids in my hands and I ended up being one hundred percent financially responsible and physically responsible for for our daughters so I was really standing at the bottom of the hill but for Romy was a decision. Do I spend the rest of my life miserable which I knew I would be or do I put myself in a miserable situation for the next year or to get everything fixed and move on with my life so I chose Kind of small my pill for two three years. There's and be done with it. That was my choice when I when I was separated from. Wow off my kids were little. My son was four and Madison was like two awful my strategies about eighteen months between them and that was really hot It was really hard being separated from little kids slot and I would see DADS as with little two little boys the same sort of thought that and it would break my heart and even today I look at that and I feel I feel really bad at it but it's it's almost exactly the same circumstance always unhappy not doing on the way that a one or two. I had a hard time transitioning from the military a whole range of things that didn't make it working on figured that if I was GonNa do it might as well do it when they little so that I know any different and I would rather them the decision at all. I might run a wrong decision I made at the time was. I'd rather than from a broken home then from an unhappy one and I was was really unhappy. So that's where kind of separated and the years and years I felt really bad or I had a carry around all of this regret and I felt awful Labat it and it wasn't until my kids go through all that my son Cameron. He's he's known to not now and travesties bought nearly seventeen o a sign of drivers jail the diamond off. I feel really bad. I was never there for you and you know I missed out on so much. And he's like what are you talking about you all the time and I felt so bad and he's like it was no big deal to him because he didn't know any of that that was a loft that he knew. Dad would just come on the weekends. And that's kind of how was he would take me to soccer. It would be all off on the year for many years. I carried the guilt of an even now today to carry the but I realized that the kids. It's not light on cared. I would just sort of like well. That's just how it is that and that's the account change it so it wasn't wasn't that big a you do how. How old were your children when you did it? they were three and ten by William Paying fifteen and twenty two now. There were three hundred ten when I did that so it was a pretty bold move but like I said you know I am so extremely aware that this is the only life I have and and this is. I think what's so important. One everybody to understand if the if you if anybody gets anything from what I'm saying is the fact that this is the only life we have and we. We really have to live in. I mean like really living not wasted away not be stupid with it just I mean this is it and I I think for when people really grasped the idea how beautiful this thing is that we have the life and that is the only one here on this. The earth I think we we approach different land because I am so consciously on a daily basis moment by moment be aware that this is the only life if I have I tried to squeeze every drop of life every out of it on a moment by moment basis so that may this mindset makes it also easier for me to make hard decisions because I asked myself a simple question at the end of the day when you're old and gray and and too tired to do anything. Is this going into the bucket of regrets or buckets of of bucket of wins. I mean it really. Is that simple. And that will make a decision for me that quickly it one of the things that I noticed about About you when I was doing. Some research for this interview was cyber stalked you. Of course I'd read all your facebook posts and Saying what you stand for and on my God political statements that I saw that were on does not say anything bad like. I wonder what people see when I look at my post all this long. The war stuff. This less of that is one of the things that are the really struck me in looking at your in store. And if I see any website and stuff like that and and the way that you communicating in facebook law is I feel like you really really On point and you know you purpose you really know why he so. You know why you're doing what it is that Straw that Simon cynic you know start with Y and I feel like this is a woman who is squared Hawaii. And she knows exactly what she's doing and the reason she knows that is because she knows what she's doing it yes absolutely end. What plays into that first? First of all thank you so much because I really have dedicated my life to being of service to people sell. I never look for acknowledgment but I will always take them. Because because you know it's it's nice when people acknowledge when you invest your life into other people so I go thank you but I am sincerely in love with what I do you because as I said previously to watch to hear somebody tell you thank you for saving my marriage. Thank you for saving my company. Thank you for off clients who considered suicide because they're so scared to death and divorce distant. Everybody hates them. And they're all these people are telling them they're back because they are the money it's a darkened scary place to to know that you can impact people at that level. It's yeah it clarify purpose because when I do it it feels that I gotta tell you. It just feels like God fuels. It feels like that. How do you help? How do you help other the papal to navigate and understand their purpose because you got into a place where into a place where people are struggling with their business and they posted a loss and whatnot? Maybe they've lost. They Y A little bit. Maybe they've had a bit of a hard time and that's why they are in that circumstance in that situation. How do you help them to navigate navigate through those things through those difficult times? Well when it comes to business and they're they're struggling financially the way to help them navigate us. You remind them why they started the business to begin with you. Take them back to the place where they were excited about it and you start building from there. I know it sounds very simple but it works because I you have to. It's not enough just telling people it's going to be okay. You have to remind because there was this moment in their life when they were so so excited about starting their business nothing could have held them back from it. Nobody know the lack of money in the lock of fuss confidence. It's nothing would have held them back so you first-aid them to that place and they'll walk him back to profitability. Just down down a different path what they have been watching but the basics of it is you take them back to the beginning just like when couples are on the verge of a divorce. A lot of the Times therapies is will remind the well how did you fall in love what happened take me back there and then they go back there and they come back saying well. I think I love you still and the same with the company the CEO kind of wakes up and says I have a good company. I've just made some bad decisions. I remember why I love this at a beautifully said Dude. We said it sounds like something. That's really what you do is really incremental. Today I got a narrow. I'm GonNa work on these things and we have a little a win and tomorrow I'm going into work on that we've we in and we just keep building on our success and I think that once people find themselves particularly in business and I worked a lot in miss in this spices well maybe from a slightly different perspective but from a digital marketing perspective. I'm not sure if you know but I had an agency or have an agency in the last twelve years or so and inevitably somebody comes to you and says hi rob you know. Can you help me with my advertising campaigns. Can you help me with my wide marketing campaigns. Let's have a look and you look at what they're doing and it's an absolute mess and I was talking to somebody yesterday. Who'd spent something walk fifteen thousand Australian dollars in the last five or six months and had zero results and just listening back through the people that had consulting to them and whether I position them and how it all worked and it's sort of like well I'm coming in here objectively? I'm not here to solve your problems. I'm not here to before a be a miracle work. What I am here to do is to tell you the truth and sometimes the truth is a little bit harsh? Sometimes it'd the ugly even because people don't want to hear the truth but if you tell somebody the truth and they're able to then confront that I would have moved forward with them from from there and highlight to them that high you know. You've you've made those mistakes as you say you've made those bad decisions. It's time to put that behind you and let's take the first step in in a slightly different direction and that feels really really empowering to do that with somebody and it feels not to me to do that. Feels really empowering to cite them and to share with them that there is a solution to this so I let me address the common out the truth telling people the truth. It is very difficult to When people are failing sometimes reorganizing companies and even building them people are not being profitable because of meet some bad decisions along the way because the truth is the company's bottom line is simply a reflection of the decisions that the leader makes a simple? I believe that people complicated all along. But that's the truth. Somebody means the decisions it flows into the bottom line. It is what it is so telling thank people the truth I think there is. I always say there's always a way to save to say things to people when you tell people the hard truth especially when you're talking talking to them about Their decisions being bad but not profitable. The most important thing is two things number one. If people feel that you genuinely genuinely care even the bachelor the hard truth is not gonna be that bad of a pill to swallow. They will process differently because they see that. It's coming from a place of care. You're not just pushing them down saying you did this wrong. You do that wrong. And number two equally important. You must leave people with dignity if you're telling people you're doing something wrong because that is the truth. This is what you've done wrong. You have to leave them with dignity you have to kind of laid out in front of them back back it up with the solution here is what you this is. What's going on? This is how we're going to fix it because now this is a team effort though only people there alone and then you kind on of unique. It you you make it nicer by saying. That's five mistakes happen. You did the best you could with the information that you had because that that is the truth nobody met. Nobody makes bad decisions on purpose. Nobody says I'm GONNA go work. I'm going to my business today. I'm going to make some bad decisions. I'M GONNA lose half a million dollars in Dole is going to be fine. Nobody does that right so when when these things happen. It's because people did the best they knew how would they have inside their head so Deliang people the truth is very important. You European lavas much as you possibly can. If circumstances allow obviously annually people with dignity. The and you say we're GONNA make the case that they no longer feeling alone because a lot of interest in yours the truth is there alone and they feel alone because daycare really talk to friends and family a lot of them. Don't they don't get it. You can't really talk to your employees because their employees for a reason. Otherwise is they have their own companies so those are different conversations so there are long so when I walk alongside an entrepreneur they finally feel deal and for all of us are actually coaches. Their people went. Did she work with they. They should never feel alone as long as you're they're very important. They're important to do that. The truth the truth can be hauch and it could be very confronting sometimes experience. It's also very liberating because because for the exact reason that you said and found that many many times in that the entrepreneur business owner or person. That's looking to engage with you as is my bad decisions. I recognize that you tell them that you highlight that to him and I almost feel a sense of relief that okay. That's done move on with that this person's not judging me before it. We're not gonNA do that anymore. We're GONNA stop that and we're GONNA move in this direction and step in that direction. Up feels really empowered. We had claw and my brother-in-law had a client in a loss. Probably four months five months we came to us and he said all my businesses not working My website is not converting properly in the pasta. Did really well. And he shared with us some of the history of these business and we looked at it and said listen. You know the the reason. The reason assault working is he spending about fifteen hundred dollars a week on on Edwards and he was getting no return and we just held up a mirror to hold up emergency on. It's not that I care about your business. So just be truthful with you inside that if I was looking for your service. And and what he did he's easy had a pool. Fencing is what it was so it was like gloss Pu fencing so I look for that and I want the pool in my backyard to have a beautiful fence and I looked at his website and he's images and he's website wasn't reflective of me. I couldn't see that in my backyard in my pool. Its not that there was anything wrong with these work or anything wrong with these products or service. It's just that it didn't allow me as a consumer to see myself in there and I said this man in Iowa the first thing we gotta do is fix up the web. I saw to make your landing page bit more sexy so when somebody gets said. Oh Wow that's what a beautiful pool beautiful imagery all sorts of things and then we need to feature Edwards campaign campaign anyway fast forward a month we fix these landing page. Looks like a million bucks and we fix these Atwood's campaign and he's gone from having no inbound bound leads for about fifteen hundred bucks a week to having twenty six inbound leads the fifteen hundred dollars a month. Nine people are seen seen the ads they gone. Click on lock that they come into the landing page. They're going yeah. That looks really cool to filling in the form and I hit the thank you page. That's how we measure the success of fighter or something. How many times you hit up against the thank you bye dropped? And you know how many conversions he had out of twenty six inbound leads like that I'd say twelve after fifteen zero. He had no conversions and my brother in law and especially my brother. WHO's his work? So hard on this damn web sought to make it look like a million bucks and he's worked so hard on the Edwards campaign to market. Do what it needs to do. The guy was unable to convert. Oh told he's on the phone really cranky battle you sending me these ladies. That don't convert. You're doing all this. That and the truth of the matter is we've done on exactly what you paid us to do. And the truth of the matter is if your sales process on the back end of that doesn't support front of that we can't take responsibility for that and ends. My brothers beat more of a diplomat than I am. When he's on the phone with these people I'm just a bit sort of? Maybe a little bit cynical after years is in years of doing it and I just hope it will strike how it is but I'm a I've got a fairly Blunt personality any white and by the time I get to having a get to to the point of having a conversation like that. There's no need for me to sugarcoat it and I said to my brother. Just GonNa tell him straight up man if he can't cell he needs to get help around selling we copy responsible for his sought not converting. He sought converts these campaigns converts. He can stay can go or it can get more it can get less. It's totally up to him. But it was really interesting to see. He's reaction in and around that because the truth of it was. We did everything you paid us to do. And more so so he's numbers went from literally from zero to twenty six and in the Google analytics. It was one thousand three hundred percent increase in inbound inbound. Leads and imagine if you had a thousand percent increase in your business in a month measure what that could do business. And he didn't capitalize on way said listen man on that's not at fault. It's up to you to capitalize on that. So the truth can be really really harsh and we stepped him in the right direction which fell gripe for him but he didn't capitalize. aww And you just don't win every time you made a good point. If I can address that you talked about putting a mirror up to him on and tweaking the website from a consumer's perspective and it's a great point that I wanNA point out to enterpreneurs in seals. That are GonNa Watch. That are watching. This is that. CEO's CEO's and enterpreneurs don't always make the best marketers because you see it from your perspective you know the product you're you're not from inside out so you you you you're so passionate about it. You think people think when the consumer sees it they get a just the same same way that the enterpreneur yet. But that's that's a lie. That is not true. So an entrepreneur's. CEO's have a very difficult a a challenge of seeing from a consumer's perception. I had somebody call me recently. Saying he knew we're talking about working together and they do custom draperies nearly high end and I said listen. He's struggling to sell beautiful company. Made this is a massive business business. If you do it right and he said I can't sell it. I said well because your customer things your things. You're selling them a basic blinds. You have to the educate beekeeping. So he's they're beautiful. They're this they're that but that's not the sales presentation itself because he thinks when people see them they're saying wow I need just for ten thousand dollars on my window no they. They don't think so so it's get get a different perspective like you're talking about somebody hired you. I urge urge. Everybody gets somebody from the outside. Don't be afraid to spend money and very important. I think this is the key for entrepreneurs to get no oh clearly the difference between an expense and investment. It's such a big thing that people don't understand. There is an expense at an investment testament. When you're investing into people that are going to help you find the process that's not an that's an investment? You're going to get a return so invest in people that we'll give you a consumer perspective. You can't lose with that if you have the right people you have. You must have the consumer perspective which you see enterpreneurs usually Malak because they see it from the other side of the fence. Yeah beautifully said beautifully. said it all these that you've been doing this you you've affected a lot of change in a lot of different organizations and remember it's more than one hundred companies is probably more than that since you wrote that on the website but is a one is a one particular one that stands out in your mind that you were data one and that is something that sticks out like a business victory so so to speak there. There really has been so many but I will tell you the biggest one is where most people were impacted. That's the three hundred hundred fifty people employing big organization. Yeah judge of the number of lives. There were impacted families that could they keep their jobs and people that were relying on that. PAYCHECK's kids that were fed from from having the business open just from that standpoint. I think that's a massive when that I am in you know honestly I think God for every for every company that I get to help. I think it's I feel I'm being trusted with other people. That's how I see it so that is by far. I think the biggest Just the biggest thing for me so many people and do you. Do you still engage with those people. After you've solved all the problems you've done the restructured. You still communicate with them allies still kwanzaa once or not really. Don't need to you know a lot of people stay a lot of people go. I've changed now more my direction from helping reorganize to helping people will grow. Because of changed I shifted in the last six months of scaling businesses versus reorganizing. Because I've seen how much How much damage and devastation? Financial chaos causes. And I know I know everything you should not do and knowing what not to do can be even even more important than knowing what to do if that makes sense. So I'm just reshipping directing my focus so a lot of the customers have common gone but some clients have state eight for ten years and the reason is it's not just reorganizing. As long as the company is open. There are things to do and decisions to be made it every single day. You know businesses extremely organic business happens twenty four seven. You can't buy. There's a lot of wonderful awful digital courses than a lot of wonderful events but that's a one time thing. A digital course cannot teach you every single thing every every single circumstance every single situation. It gives you wonderful tools and information but it doesn't teach you how to deal with everything that's going to happen. Every single well do because businesses twenty four seven. It really is twenty four seven so a lot of people stay even after. You've helped him because things happen everyday. Decisions needs to be made every day. They need somebody to balance it often. They understand the investment of having me is much more beneficial Fischl much more profitable than trying to figure it out themselves and by the way a lot of the times when you leave people alone they go back to their basic decision-making Now go back to the same problems to that. I'm interested to know. Can you share with the audience. You said it's really important. We know what not to do. What are the top one or two things like that? You see whatever you do. Don't damn do that. Yeah I will tell you what it is. The statistics show that most companies unfortunately fail right by year Tan. I think only what six percent remain open something like that. This is not something I made up. This has been here for for ages. Everybody can go online and then check out the statistics and even the the pretty small percentage that remains open. It doesn't mean that they're profitable they just haven't shut the doors yet. BITTU over a hundred companies I can sell you beyond the shadow of a doubt. There's only a two reasons. Companies Fail number one lack of information on the part of the CEO. What do I mean by that? As the company grows I don't care how many seminars masterminds the CEO goes student at some point. The company will. The company's needs will outgrow with grow the knowledge base of the CEO so the CEO is here. The company's needs are here and this thing is between becomes a negative Bad decisions because you don't know what what this is. Something has to fill the gap. The gap is the negative. Because you're starting to bleed by because the decisions Asians are just not profitable anymore. Because you know number one know where your information smart stops and be smart enough to know that you're not got smart enough to know everything. Put the arrogance aside and do not do it yourself. It is extremely expensive extremely expensive because you can't learn everything you can't consume all of the information old. The tips and tricks invest in their people and number two goes along with number one is the lack of infrastructure again. Do not do everything yourself. Lineup yourself with people that support your mission and your vision. It's a must having wrong people alongside you you might as well not have a company have less people have qualified right people and more importantly people that support your mission and your vision and they're you know there's a few other line items if you have a company that has if if you have employees and things like that know your numbers a lot of CEO's interpreters. They don't look at financial statements. I know it sounds sounds pretty simple but do not put off. People who could their financial statements sometimes once in six months at Stanford taxes. It's it's awful. Did Not put these things aside. If you're responsible you're responsible for the bottom line how can you be. How can you be responsible for the bottom line? You never look at so. Do not put this off another people. Also what's a lot of. CEO's do they hire accounting departments day lead the bookkeepers navigate the daily operations daily cash management. Don't do that because these are still employees. It's a different mindset. It's a different sense of responsibility. It's a different. It's a different authority and the employers will never really know entirely highly what the company needs. Because only you have the big picture. You're everybody else has just a piece of the puzzle but you hold the box of the puzzle of that Mason so do not allow everybody to make decisions for the company. I mean there's no list can be mile long. There's so much to do but pay attention and completely embrace the fact that you are responsible for everything that's in your company bottom line. You're the responsible one I love it. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing that. That's such that that information is absolute gold particularly the the gap the gap between where you are to where you need to be if you don't know you know it's that thing in personal development. If you want something that you don't have you've got to become different posen. We're going to become the person that's actually. We're GONNA get there to be able to do that. That's also difficult to know what that actually is and that gap is difficult to recognize another. I think the council fool of my close friends that are in business around the in our share that with them even though they're not in the same businesses may still have a good idea of what what did he do. I do and I like to share that with them often because it's a completely independent view of where I am every now and then I'll get a perspective that otherwise wouldn't of saying One of my friends Marco really good might Amman. He's he's he's Chinese heritage. But he's an ozzy. He's a first generation Ozzy Z.. Down he's parents are Chinese immigrants Australia and the Chinese culture around business is completely different to the western culture around business and when you go into his physical physical shops so he has to shopfronts any highs an online business effectively it has to businesses as the online and the offline version of it. And when you he him talk talk about that. And he's he's mom ran that business for a long time before he took it over but just the just the leading idiosyncrasies and the differences that he talks about and then when he system high rope has your business going. You know talk about that and I'll tell him what's been happening through. The WIKI says. Hey we thought about it like this. Have you thought about that in a month. No you know and often. It's a cultural thing often. You know he he says to me. Well what do you do me the business rob you know a building thing to sell it or what are you doing. And I'm like yes. I'm going to go as fast as I can for two years and I'm going to sell it for twenty million dollars an hour and he goes like calm. We thought then what I'm like. Ro Amrop any he said well. Why don't you take the Chinese philosophy and build a Centurion Company due to company that lost a hundred years? Imagine if you build a company that lasted one hundred years and I thought of never thought of that and he said don't build a company that you'll proud of. Don't build one that your family's proud off. Don't build one that. Instagram is proud of beauty. Build a company that your country is proud of. You know he's gone from why patriotism and now you can see in the studio. He's a flag behind me nuts. It would accompany that your country is proud of and he's he was sliding all of these trying to his business owners. Know the Jack Mas of the world and all of these people and he said in China China. The population worships these people. Not because they're so successful in business but because of what they do in business and how they affect change and fixed so many the people and he's thinking around that and just sharing a little bit of my day to day with him just over a being down the pub on sort of thing really opened up more thinking being recently and then every now and then it's somebody else will do the same thing and give me a different cultural view. Were a different version of it lot. That sounds so unbelievably important to share that. That information with you with you trust colleagues absolutely and you know people will always give us a different perspective. Because you're just one person I don't care her smart you are your own person and sometimes people will give us a different perspective on the world. Look at it and say well just like you're saying I've never seen that. Were never thought about it. It may be complicated. Me Be simple. It may be really profitable but you know this is again going back to the discussion we had is that I urge urge all everybody who has a business have people that that help you because perspective itself has so much money in it has so much profitability has so much life in it. It's I think it's important like I said No. Like from me I'm I'm smart enough to know that I'm not smart enough to know everything so I will seek advice of other people and I will even in personalized. I'll tell my friends. Let me bounce something off of you you say back to me. How does it sound back when I here so and do the same in business? It is extremely profitable to bounce off your ideas. Even if they're not necessarily moneymakers but allow people to give you a different perspective. You will. We'll we'll find out so much when people say our own stuff back to us. 'cause you know what you're saying when you put it out there no one's holding the mirror up to yourself sometimes. It's really that while Regina. Thank you so much.

Let let you go. Let you leave the golden podcast without putting you in the podcast. hotseat you ready I don't know I'm here. Let's do doing pretty gentle bit random. It's not really related to what we're talking about Y- live in the. US You get to travel around there. Live they I was to ask my I guess. What's your favorite holiday destination to go to? I'll be honest with you for the holidays. We stay home because I have Avenue Meeting Group of friends. We've all been friends for thirty years.

It's going to be close to forty people kids running around so I wish I could say I go somewhere but for the holidays. Okay so if I want my friends and my daughter's I'm good beautifully. Said I live right on the beach hearing dollar in Sydney and as very hard for made made unpick myself from here like we're GonNa go to another beach to a tropical island that's like one hundred out the fund that's their sort of being. So that's why I asked that question Asian and every now and then people say stuff you never thought of that. That's really really awesome next one. What's a what's a skill that you haven't mustard yet that you're working on? I am always trying to master patience to me. It's a skill. It's a skill. It's a gift that God pheno skipped me out in in. You know he was putting it together yourself. I'm mastering patients because I want everything yesterday and they doesn't always happen like that. So Yeah I've had patients and it was a big one for me absolutely. Yeah absolutely reality is the well just doesn't move as fast as an entrepreneur wants to Hurry the hell up Julia exactly. That's yes yes I I just. I think that I've stopped saying it. I used to actually say stop saying you're now just think now I just keep it in my head or go to another feeling well or last Last question for the podcast is what's the best piece of business advice that you've ever received to stay the course from my mentor. That I was with for many many years when I felt restless when I was younger. Would feel restless as things are not moving fast enough against being dacians When things are not moving fast enough he was always able to tell me again going back to having different perspectives? Show me the different I would tell them Dispatched to slow. I've nothing is getting done. Nothing is happening. He would offer me a different perspective a whole laundry list of the things that were happening and he would tell me stay. The course did not get off the path because he wants to remind you are walking your purpose. The only thing that's going to happen if you get off the path is that you're going to derail yourself because at some point you're going to have to get back into your purpose. You'll have just wasted time getting off of it because you're Beijing because you're irritated because because of whatever he would always stay the course stay the course stay the course and you know what I now teach my clients because that is the biggest business advice lies in fact that somebody on working with now just on a side note because maybe it'll help other people as watching I was talking to a client is. She's not feeling things are moving fast enough and I said look you've gotta stay the course because we're implanting season. She's not seeing the harvest. I said we're implanting season. Just prepare the soil. Would just planted wanted the seats. And you gotta give it a few minutes because people just want to say it doesn't work. I'm GonNa Scrap GonNa do something else. But if you've just planted planted don't scrap it. Let it let it grow. Let Ado let nature led the universe do what it's supposed to do. Give it time so stave. The course you know and I said warm weren't harvests Were implanting season we prepare the soil would lead to the C.. You would five minutes. You will see the harvest but if you walk away from it just like it's going to dry dry up and nothing's going to be there if you kill it if you walk away from assess Inaba got a BB everything we've done Katelyn nurturing and then we'll see the rewards stay the course restless biggest business advice for me.

In Conversation With Oscar-Nominated Regina King Of 'If Beale Street Could Talk'

"The. From WB are Boston NPR, Jane clayson, and this is on point. That gorgeous melody of both tragedy and hope is from the two thousand eighteen film. If Beale street could talk the story from the James Baldwin novel of the same name is just that a- tale of sorrow and trusting love Regina king plays. Sharon rivers, the mother of pregnant young woman whose boyfriend was falsely accused of rape her raw performance earned her a Golden Globe win and an Oscar nomination for best. Supporting actress this hour on point Oscar nominee, Regina king. Join us what did you take away from? If Beale street could talk what themes are relevant today. Join us on point radio dot org or on Twitter and Facebook where they're at on point radio. With me from Los Angeles, California is Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee for best. Supporting actress, Regina king, how nice to have you with us. Regina. Welcome to on point. Hi, Jane nice to be here. Congratulations to you on this Oscar nomination, your first wonderful. Yeah. It is must be in the clouds. It was such a beautiful beautiful performance. Just really. So tell me a little bit described the story the story of a of love and tragedy and heartbreak and this beautiful young woman named Tisch. And this young man named Fani. How would you describe the film in its message? How I would describe the film as not the typical of story because it is a representation of love between more than just two lovers. It's love between family members love between friends, and how that love permeates and how it pushes through traumatic things that happen in lives. Whether they're ongoing things love is finding. The way to get on the other side of that trauma. One critic wrote that you are quote, the beating heart of some of the film's finest scenes you've already earned a clutch of awards for your portrayal of Sharon. Tissues mother in the film. Here's a here's a clip your character. Sharon, immediately, supports Raddad Tisch when she confesses she is pregnant here in this scene. Sharon, shares the news with the rest of the family by giving toast. This. Is a sacrament in. No, I lost mind. We are drinking to new life. Tissue have findings baby. Talk about this the story line here. Tissues boyfriend was falsely accused of rape. Give us a sense of of how that plays out. Well during that moment that you just play that audio. That's we learned that a Titian finally have loved each other since they were little kids and finally is like a family member. And these these young lovers find themselves in in a place. That's that's terrifying. But also one of the most beautiful moments of a couple inexperienced together. And. Tisch comes to me to let me know that she's pregnant and she's scared and our mother receives it with open arms and support. And she decides that you know, we're gonna share it with the family, and we're going to celebrate it with the family, and that's what you hear in that moment. You are really the foundation of this household, what did you draw on to make this character? Sharon, come to life. Oh, ju on personal experiences with my grandmother. And my mother my grandmother's definitely she was definitely the matriarch of our family shoes. The woman that, you know, inner church of family friends, always wanted Loretta to be around whenever they were going through anything because she has had the say, my grandmother is not with his anymore. But I speak about her in the present. Because she's always here. You know? I am her. But she has this presence. That is comforting. A my mother embodies that same thing. So pulling on just that feeling that I've always felt as a child as a mother being part of a family that is very supportive and also just recognizing that it's very rare to see ourselves in. Cinema or on television, where the mother and father is in the home and loving on each other and creating space for their children to thrive, and that was just so important to me to get that right to represent that. Honestly. And I think it was the same that I think it was the same for Coleman KiKi Antion a-, and defined that we we knew we had a responsibility to bring an honest portrayal to the rivers, family and Fani. James Baldwin wrote Beale street in nineteen seventy four but the issues that the book highlights about race. And rape and mass incarceration are still very much a part of our national discourse today, Regina king. How do you see this film fitting into the context of those conversations today? Will is interesting. I mean it James Baldwin his just he has been such an eloquent voice for America. You know, you know, of course, he is a black man. And he was speaking with right? Many essays about the systemic injustices that occur against black Americans. But you know, one of his the thing that's so beautiful about him is as he would write and speak with so much fire. He has so much love. I mean, one of his quotes that I think is represent two. He is the most who he was as he said, we can disagree and still love each other unless you're disagreement is rooted thinking, my oppression that denial of my humanity and right to exist. And it's interesting that he said that so long ago, but yet we're still in so many different ways, you know, even just I don't wanna get into politics. But just we still have a problem. Understanding the difference between disagreement and oppression. And that's just really frustrating and sad. But. I feel blessed to be part of a piece of art. That is. Representation of how far we haven't come. Let me get a listener in here from New Orleans who has a question for you. Regina, king male. You're on the air. Welcome to unpleasant with Regina king. Hi, thank you so much for taking my call. I'm Regina, can I just wanted to tell you that was. Yeah, I really enjoyed that film. And and thank you for making that making that a performance, I had a question about the way that the film ended, and you know, one of the things that I found most painful and poignant about that film was how it didn't really have a concise ending, and that kind of spoke to I guess, the perpetual nature of nothing cars ration-, how it really doesn't have an ending do you? I guess maybe it's more have any any comment on on that aspect of the film? Yes. Absolutely. Thank you. Excuse me. That was a wonderful choice that very Jenkins made. If you in the book, that's not how the book ended the book in. Did you just didn't know what happened to finding? You don't know. No. If he. If he ever got out, you just know that he's in jail when? When you finish the book, and we actually shot that ending the way Tisch finds out that Frank who Fanis five other kills himself, and she goes into labor finding that out and the baby's born, and we shot that ending. And when berry was watching it and screening it to get feedback. What he was receiving was after that beautiful seeing that you see defined when he's just so angry and frustrated but still yet loving to TIs people. They did not see finding after that point. And they thought that the audience thought that finally had killed himself as well. So buried felt like he did not want to. Patriarchs to to fathers to die in the story. And if that's how people were receiving it. He felt like it was very important to change that. So they shot a of we shot another ending. And that was the ending you saw. So that ending is actually more hopeful because very decided that win finest. Character says I'm building table for my family eat around and may not be the table that he built but his family's there together. Malbranque's so much for the call. I am speaking with Oscar nominated actress Regina king about her role in the film, if Beale street could talk you can join the conversation listeners what's your question for Regina king about the life of an actor about using your voice as a platform for change more with Regina king and your calls after this break. I'm Jane clayson. This is on. Point. This is on point. I'm Jane clayson. We're speaking with Regina king this hour about her powerful performance in if bail street could talk she wanna Golden Globe and is nominated for an Academy Award. You can join the conversation does Beale street speak to you follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook where they're at on point radio so many calls here. Let me get Noelle in from Norfolk Virginia. Hi, Noel, you're on the air with Regina king. I Jane in Regina, our you. Well, no, I just wanna say I saw the movie about a week or so ago in it's very deep is very poetic. And we my mom is a paint, which is an artist. And we saw, you know, James Baldwin's documentary other update at one about a year ago, and it just the movie it self is so deep great acting. You're definitely a power punch in the film viz king. I mean, you've always been outstanding. I'm just so proud of you. And so have him send your. Hug through the phone. But this film did leave you with just almost like a tragic urban opera like the tragedy of what went on with his even still now the racism that just the false accusations and just like the beautiful love story of of just the enduring love that they have for each other still hanging their head of child and still stand by her man, you know, feeling, but it was still the disparity. I mean, you know, it's like, you know, he's still there, and it was just like a almost like a tragic urban opera. But it was so well told and everyone in the film was outstanding. I just wanna say your hug through the phone. Receiving the hug and Sinden. It right back. Thank you so much. You know, Regina king much has been written about the dearth of tender black love stories in cinema and Beale street, definitely fills a gap in that canon. Absolutely, absolutely. I mean that was I think that's what makes Bill streets. It was such a unique book as far as James Baldwin's writings were up until that point because he was able to. Push through that love theme with such tragedy or trauma. I love the way Noel kind of framed it as a urban tragedy. I think that. Yeah. Like an opera that that. But that was that's fantastic. I'm going to have to handcuff that. No, I'll thanks so much for the call Regina your character in the film. Sharon, immediately, supports Tishman. She says she's pregnant a stark contrast to Fanis mother's reaction. Here's a clip from that scene. Mrs hunt played by new Ellis upset throwing insults at Tisch, and Sharon your character, Regina, confronts. Mrs hunt and tries to reason with her. Coming. His green. Understand you. It's your grand child. What differences it make? How it gets here to tally got nothing to do with that. None of us got nothing to do with that. Regina king. What does the ferocity with which Sharon defense, both Titian Fani? What does it say about the struggles of black motherhood of the day? Would you say? Oh, well, first of I think the. It was so brilliant for James Baldwin m berry, you know, came berries at attention, of course to. Put these two women together that are so strong and just represents two different types of strengths. And when you have one strength, the source of it is fear and the other the source of it is love, and when you put those two together, you just get a. A really I think a perfect representation of fear vs. Love love versus fear, and I feel like black mothers back parents in America struggle with that every day. You know, it's interesting when I was teaching my son how to drive in one of my closest girlfriends, you know, our sons are the same age and she's teaching Merson outta drive as well. And we're talking at dinner, we went to have dinner, and I was talking about you know, the things that I have to. I'm just so nervous. I'm just so scared because again is going out into the world now and just eat even I can control even less of what happens, and she didn't quite understand that and. We spoke further, and we realized just the difference between being a white mother, teaching her son outta drive in a black mother, teaching her sonata drive, and that things that I have to make sure knows to do if he gets pulled over that. She doesn't have to do that with her son, and she got a little emotional because she never considered that. And I think that's we get a slice of that in such a deep way watching Bill street, in my opinion. Let's get there in here from Richmond Virginia. Hi, vera. Welcome to the program, you're on with Regina king. Hello. Thank you. I wanted to say, Regina. Excellent. Excellent acting on your part. And actually I've loved you every single fan that seen you act in. And I did have a question though. I just felt like in your role, a mom when you first found out that the character was pregnant, I just felt like a lot of African American moms and even mom's period would have been a little bit more upset at first. And then maybe would have been a little bit calm. I thought you know, that that took a lot to take in the way that you did how do you feel about that? Yeah. I understand that. I think. Fill of things about that. As far as. One. We were staying honest to the material and berry when he was writing the story that was one of the things that was very important to him because he wanted to honor James Baldwin's work, and there's so much of the of the words that were written in the book that are actual dialogue in the script and film, and I I felt like it was refreshing to see to not see the anger and this woman. Sharon, rivers, she exemplifies control that a lot of human beings. Do not have. And it gives it as an arc character arc seeing her be in control of receiving information. Like that it's a better pay off when she loses a bit of control when she's not able to get the job done. In Puerto Rico, and it's also. Very much. We believe common. And I when we were doing a bit of our building our background for sharing. And Joe felt like we were Titian Fani at one time. And when you see yourself in a. In in in someone else in something else. And you wish you may have had that same support that we felt like maybe Joe and Sharon talked about it a little later and said now, you know, that was new. We mama. Didn't cheat. It take so well and decided to you know, support their girls. So that's how we approached it. And I felt like it was it was refreshing to see their thanks so much for the call. Let's get another in here from John in Baltimore, Maryland. Hi, john. You're on the air. Hi, I my question was on was also that scene with the father got upset at his wife. It was to meet I was one of the most powerful scenes because I kind of relate to that. And in the age of be too and all of this being politically, correct? I thought it was courageous of you guys put that scene in there with a father, confronted, his wife physically. And how how was that decision made? It seem like, you know, that that was like total tone, align I liked the scene, and I respect, but it, but I know that it must have been difficult to like with John. Thank you returning king. Yes. Thank you, John. It was definitely you know, it's rough for people to see into watch. But it's also a truth. It's interesting because you. I have so many people reacted different way. When they. Oh are watching that scene. You know, you have people that feel guilt because they feel like in the moment. That's what she gets. 'cause she said such horrible things and then our fill so bad because I've I I'm I'm thinking that. And would that's kind of what we struggle with human beings all the time the just how to control our emotions, and that was again in the book, and again berry was honoring this book view re-getting the opportunity to read the book, you will just see just so many similarities, and it's very difficult when you're doing an adaptation from a book because you're convincing in your trying to make sure you tell that story without. Without disrupting the original content. That's why so often you see in a film inspired by you know, opposed to adapted. John thanks so much for the call. They were two scenes in the movie if Beale street could talk Regina king that were particularly moving. I wanted to ask you about them the scene when your character sharing goes to Puerto Rico to confront your son in law's accuser and the scene in the hotel room where you're putting on and then taking off a bobbed wig was very moving. Tell me about the filming of that scene. What you wanted to convey in this moment of of really introspection. Well, there was so many things, you know, kind of going back to I think Maryland who called in it. It's that moment of where you're seeing the woman that has been able that is so good at controlling her emotions and soothing those around her. It's you're witnessing her within her moment of fear her moment when she's like, I don't wanna do this. But has to suck it back in because she has to that it it's all leaning on her. And normally she has Jodi lean on in times of of of of trauma. But she's there by herself in here's this woman that never probably been out of the country. What is that? Look like what is that smell like what does that feel like what is that sound like, and these are all the things. That are going through Sharon's mind in that moment in the book. It was actually show that she takes off in puts on and takes back off. And when I read the book after reading the script and found out that I got in the part, I call berry and ask him. What did he think about it being a wig instead of a shawl because thinking about my grandmother and her having her wigs in weeks for different Cajun's, and they almost seem like armor. They seem like it helped her move through whatever occasion, she was going to encounter, and I felt like that represented women so strongly so clearly about women of all colors all ages could understand that even more than the schol. And he he liked that. He agreed that he was not a woman, and that he was thought that that was a good idea, and he trusted you trusted me. What he creates a space where you feel comfortable to bring an idea to him. And know that it's not it's going to be heard the other seen Puerto Rico seen was particularly moving in the other scene was when Tisch has the baby, and you are standing over her shoulder is so Vakhidov, really emotional even. Makina here. It's you know, it's so interesting Jane when shooting that scene, I it it did not feel as emotional as it was when you're watching it in context when you're watching it in order in after you've seen an experience everything that happens in this family's life in this slice of their life. And and so to see it in real life it being a mother myself was just like. It was it was a rewarding in a lotta ways. Because here you have this beauty. That's coming through monks, the bruises. And then something that always say find the beauty and the bruises. And when I watched that scene at tiff when I saw the film, I felt like there you go. That's the beauty and the bruises. I read where you said that you don't like to watch yourself in your own work that I do not. I'm curious what it was like to see this film, especially on the big screen such an emotional work. Yes. Here's the thing. I would plan not to again, watch this. I have not watched myself in something in years and d Gardner who's one of our producers. She was like you have to see this. You have to see this film. Not even for your performance. You have to see this film. So I'm like, yeah. You know, you're right. This is this is berry Jenkins and James Baldwin. You're right. Remove yourself Regina from this. Don't it's not all about you and five minutes into watching this film. I started tearing up and I was like oh my God. I would happening and I realized that. This film is visual symphony. It say audio. It's a symphony for your ears for your for your eyes for your heart. Berry just found a way to take James Baldwin's, beautiful words and paint such a quiet lovely picture that draws the audience in. And I was there for it. Five minutes in. I want to ask you about your Golden Globes acceptance speech after the break Regina in your call for gender parody in Hollywood. We'll get to that. After the break. I'm speaking with actor director producer, Regina king. And you can join us listeners. Do you think Hollywood has taken a turn on the issue of gender parody on racial parody?

Let's get some of these calls in here. Caroline is in Stamford, Connecticut. Hi, Caroline, welcome to the program. Hi, thank you. I just I wanted to call. I just saw this movie this weekend. And I'm I'm just so moved by. And I'm moved by everyone's performances at I wanted to say to Regina king. I just I I was like entrenched by you the whole time. I think that you represented such a strong character. And just really I feel like represented what so many women feel like they have to be in order to face, you know, adverse. Eighty and that scene where you're with Veronica in Puerto Rico, just it just made me weep. Because I'm I'm a survivor myself. And I felt like that's exactly how if feels and don't I knew that she wouldn't want you to touch her, but you needed to because you were pleading for your child. So it's like what do you do in that situation? You know, and you just you are incredible. Thank you care line. Thank you so much for sharing that and sharing a bit of your journey. That's the appreciate that that seen was. It was it was it was heavy. We all all of the women. I feel like that had anything to do with this movie this film. It was very important for us to make sure that it was clear that we believed our characters believe veronica's story. We just knew that it wasn't funny. And what do you do with that? How do you protect the woman that has been violated this way? And save your child. You know? That's like you pray. No one could be in in situation like that. And here we are here. We find ourselves in that space, and there were scenes that weren't in the film that we actually shot prior to that we shot him in quench order. So there's like two or three scenes that lead up to that moment. And Emily Rios who plays Victoria's such an amazing actress prepared focus address, we needed the although the audience didn't need to see those scenes to tell the story we needed those things. So that you can feel them in the story can be told. And it was it was I'm so lucky for them, Emily as. Scene partner scenes partner, and the olive does that came in collect her. That's another layer of wins surrounding and protecting each other. That's right. Yeah. Beautiful it tragic and beautiful at the same time. Caroline. Thank you so much for that. Call here's bath in Atlanta, Georgia. Hi, beth? You're on the air with Regina king. My pleasure. Thank you so much for taking my call.

And I wanted to take you Jean King for your president present future, keeping it real keeping it relevant. I haven't seen the movie, but I will see it this weekend. I'm more to the story so beautiful. And so so real that. I know you you shining. I know you. Thank you so much. Thank you for the call bet at Regina. Let me play this clip while you were accepting your award for the best. Supporting actress at the Golden Globes last month, you promised that future projects will all have gender parody here. You are. I am making Val, and it's going to be tough to make sure that everything that I produce that is fifty percent women. And I just challenged anyone out there. Anyone out there who is in a position of power not just in our industry our industry. I challenge you to challenge yourself and stand with us in solidarity and do the same all projects, you produce will include at least fifty percent women, and you challenge the rest of Hollywood to do the same while. Yeah. That was challenging people in all industries. Not just Hollywood. Okay. All right. As we need to see that parody across the the map with everything. So that's a heavy lift what was the reaction to that? It's actually been amazing. How many people want to be a part of that many people have been inspired to do a version of the same? How many women who are in certain positions as far as their employees? I've had one of my friends that has she said she watched the show in got so emotional, and it inspired her to start her own company and no longer be an employee. So that's that's the point. You know, you you wanna plan a seed in the ground, and and hopefully you'll nourish it and others. Will plant more seeds in eventually you'll have a forest let's get Tracy in here from Columbus, Georgia. Hi tracey. You're on the air. Hi, thanks for taking my phone. I just wanted to say to Jane of that I've been following career for four decades, you are brilliant and not just as a woman or as a person of color. You are just a brilliant artist. I can't believe it's taking so long for you to get an Oscar nomination I've watched in seven films several series. And I just I just think you're nominal artist. So I mean, I'm looking forward to whatever you're going to be doing in the future. It just thank you, Tracy. Thank you so much a role model to many, I I know Regina king. You started in Hollywood on the television series, two two seven starring Marla Gibbs. And Helen Martin you worked with some very successful black female actors at a very early stage of your career and really your life. I'm curious how you've seen the kinds of roles. Available to African Americans. And especially African American women evolve. Over your career. Excuse me. I've of feel like there have been there's been some Evelyn varies slow of very small little pockets here and there and then we'll have a lull. And then some things will come again, I think just women period. Whether it's a woman of color or not we gravitate to characters that are strong and for not just women young women girls. And when you are a black woman, a black girl, and you don't have as many examples that look like you that are strong and successful. And and are confident in speaking their truth. It's an and you don't have that around you in. Your real life. It's really hard to figure out your walk. You know to to to walk with your head high, and I have been lucky where I've had that in my personal life, and in my business, my young business life, you know, with Marley Gibbs and Helen Martin inches here. And Helen Martin telling stories of of of of what she endured as she was coming up, and then just hearing some of those stories repeated with Marla in what she endured, you know, being in the business and seeing Marla who kind of started her career in this industry late, you know, she was a single mother, and we didn't know about Florence intil Marla Gibbs until we saw Florence, and it's just. I guess just when you have that around you when you see a woman of of fight for her art, and and have so many people try to shut her down. But still rise up is is is fantastic. As a child, you're not really aware that you're receiving all of that. But now is a woman I know that I was receiving it in. It's time for me to employ what I've received getting in here from canton, Ohio. Hi nadine. Welcome to one point with Academy Award nominee, Regina king. Hello. Thank you very much for taking this call them. I had a question for Tina doesn't. Well, let me put it this way. I haven't seen the movie yet because I'm reading the book, and I want to read it before I see the movie, but I definitely will see build streets. But I have a question about a Netflix film that she starred in called seven seconds. And in that film. She went from a middle class. Very happy black housewives to a depressed woman living in her car. And because mental illnesses such a part of our life the day, especially mimic oppressive. I wanted to know how Regina prepared for that part to go from one extreme to the other knitting. Thank you. Let me play a clip, Regina. I have it here. Seven seconds. You actually receive the primetime EMMY award for your performance in the net. Flicks. Crime drama, seven seconds. Here's a scene from the series your character letroy. Reese in her husband is Ahah played by Russell Hornsby learned that the man accused of hitting and seriously, injuring their son with his car may only receive three to five years in prison here. It is. My son. Laid in the cold and the snow in pain for hours. No-one came for him except the dog. He may never walk again. He may never wake up again in you. Tell him meeting the person that did this get the read of five years that man, desserts, the Daiva what he did. Regina king to nadine's question. What was that like to prepare for another intense and emotional? That right. There was probably the hardest role ever in my life. I am a mother of a son. So to go someplace really dark about something that you never you. Pray. You never ever experienced is. A is is terrifying. Dive I originally when Veena Sood came to me about playing Latrice when I read the script. I thought the pilot was. Brilliant. But I wanted to play K J who is the attorney in the show, and I re- Vena was just adamant on that I play Latrice. And I thought the writing was so good that I took a breath at prayed on it and decided to take that dive in. I realized that the reason why didn't I was telling being that. I don't I wanna play K J because I haven't played a role like that a role. That's you know, messy, and and and she's not a mother. And so I gave all of these reasons why k Jay would be a good role for me all the reasons being a role that I haven't played and she came back with you haven't played a mother like this before mother dealing with this before. So I decided to take the role in realized, you know, maybe by the second episode. That I was scared to take this dive. And that was the reason why I didn't take the I I was scared to to take the role was the reason why I wanted Caja and to be in that space for that period of time is depressing. I was so lucky to have an amazing cast of to work with. They're all such great actors in. We would go to brunch together we would go to lunch together. And kinda just talk about it because we were all, you know, dealing with subject matter, you know, David Lyons. You know, he's playing some that's nasty is just horrible. And we just kind of together found a way to to to get through that Russell Hornsby. My god. If I did not have him for those four. Five months. I don't know how we just held each other up. We really did. It was it made me understand when you're breaking down the trees in pulling the layers off, and knowing that that I ever sold you're seeing her and you feel like she's happy, and they're happy and you discover you caught the butlers during a happy moment. But there was unhappiness prior to that. And it just takes one incident to trigger the mine to go someplace. Dark. Regina, king have twenty seconds here. You once said you do not have any desire to play women that are not strong. So what strong woman is next? Oh my goodness. Well, I currently shooting the watchman Damon Lindelof next project for HBO and guarding every last detail like a game of thrones is God. I really am. I am gatekeeper the everything, you know. I I'm terrified. I don't know what HBO might do reveal anything. Well, I can say she strong. Well, good luck with that. And Golden Globe winner Academy Award nominee role model to many Regina king. Thank you so much for being thank you. Jane? This hour. You've been listening to Oscar nominated original score from if Beale street could talk we go out with the song Eden. I'm Jane clayson, this is on point.

003 Stand Up Comedy Tips from The Nervous Comic

"This is the nervous comic. I'm glad you found me yeah doing back there she won't even hold Your Hand Rate Regina if you're from Regina I am not telling you all coming with candy and flowers and we are going to make up and we're going to fix that comedy intersection tell people you're a stand up comedian is are you funny and I have a different take on that are you funny is a very club or doing a show the audience managers the bar staff ourselves we're all wondering are we funny and hopefully the thing you do your holding hands things are going somewhere and sometimes the date is horrible sometimes yeah audiences for stand up comedy I have a certain idea about them I always think of every audience says a new girlfriend that you have to impress in the as a kid that was probably the only thing I thought I did well and probably the same thing as an adult another thing that always gets asked whenever you're is over the years I've always been told drunk crowds are hard drunk crowds are terrible late show they're drunk oh no the one of the things good and bad question most standups will hate that when you ask them that but as a stand up comedian this is the overall question that hangs in the air when we go to really dating the answer is yes by the time we're done it's a very hard question and it puts US under a lot of pressure but hey that's part of the game bad but I have had three shows that I felt unhappy about I did not connect properly so I'm telling you right now Jonah next time I am what's going to happen they're drunk recently there's been a couple of things that have changed my mind on this philosophy one I was doing the table is just one long episode of dealer no deal longlining contestants might after no deal button that you're on stage and that could be as short as ten to twenty minutes sometimes it's wonderful this like the best first date ever your data's flirty they love this show and it was their few groups of drunk people and there was a crowd that just wouldn't listen and they were very attentive but then there was a couple other people oh who were laughing at everything that I did so after my show little downhearted I went to the bar and the one guy who was laughing at all stuff I was doing came up to me and says inching is whenever I do talk to someone about stand up comedy they say why do you do it well I always wanted to do it I know that sounds cheesy but that's exactly what it is I this guy was also drunk it has nothing to do with being drunk and he loved my show another time the crowd was obvious idiots and I said well people have different ideas of comedy and besides they were drunk and was at that moment that I realized Oh me and my girlfriend we love comedy and you're so funny I don't know what those other people's problems where they should have been listening but they were just talking and being rude and very well and I was getting nervous because some of my stuff is kinda thoughtful stuff when you're drunk sometimes it doesn't always connect I made the decision to try Lee drunk there were loud they were a little rowdy but they were just there to have a good time and to act came on before me and they did not do all sorts of cheers and they love me they were my people and I love them and ever since then I've never had people get quiet because sometimes you don't read them properly I often stand in the back of the room and I try to read the crowd is a drunk route I actually don't have problems with drunk routes that much or loud crowds it's the quiet crowds reach them at the drunk level which I do have some experience with so I went up there and I threw all my drunk material atom I did remarried matt look at the menu eat at home contestant did only because the no deal tonight for the house getting dressed up in my boot jacket sometimes I look and I make generalizations it's a young crowd no problem I can square a bit I can talk about Forbidden Topic Wchs Sex I don't know why people there are six billion people on the planet sex is a good thing it's a natural thing that had happened of course when it comes I just wish the kitchen was open later I I can't I'm not psychic even though I do like it can show I'm not psychic and sometimes I make a mistake but I watch and see what are people are laughing at and making my own thing I'm talking about is quite a bit I don't know why people are so sticky about it but I've gone on when there's younger crowds and I've been a little dirty and they go we they also live in my single days for you a I jumped out of her seat she was like yeah it was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time and by the way that show was in grand prairie and he starts off hey guys by applause who likes women with big breasts and of course many men will gene shows and after that they go come you didn't swear why haven't you little dirtier and I'm like oh I don't know what I'm doing the crowds when I'm working with another comedian usually I'll help my buddy out because I'm usually the first guy on and when my buddy goes on still trust me bullying I said Yeah Yeah grand prairie the only things to do here is to drink have sex and go bowling actually the third I because you're watching him do his show while I'm watching you react to show I call it the third I what's in my head that Oh herod drunk crowd and it's a blanket thing that doesn't always apply so for all you budding comedians out there that's one of the things you'll have to deal with it's not so much fun shefty's formed sleep it just made it up it's not copyrighted and it is really fun to sit in the back of the room and watch you react to my friend doing his jokes and it was the crowd were clapping and this one guy was not just clapping he was whooping and he was obviously with his girlfriend thought for sure things are going to blow up and yeah but I'll bring candy for you to don't worry don't worry don't worry breath speaking of audiences I know everybody also asked about heckler in time or this comedian and he was pretty blue and he was talking you know the men and women and he was there was this couple right in front of me that I could see their reaction the look and I see a bunch of older people and go okay I'll have to clean it up a better than you know be a little sharper and I've been on stage and I do real quick a heckler but it's not the only one sometimes somebody just says something out of the blue and maybe they're trying didn't liked him and they're quiet and I can tell that you know they might be a little offended or a little out of place and and other times balances it out he says okay ladies your turn just an it comes to sex is size important well is girlfriend somebody's just commenting on your show and they're not really heckling they don't want to make you look bad they're adding and if they're funny if they're getting a laugh I will roll with that I will talk to them directly I will write down their bit the crime is going to be like Oh see you later but he kind of noticed her and he said something and she seemed fine and everything was fine and my friend continued with his show well of course he I I do you handle a heckler and what do you do to get around these I know the typical response you'll see for hecklers you'll see the interesting he comes off after set and a heckler had yelled out his punchline at the end of the show and he was mad it basically ruined the whole job yeah director show you have a microphone and sometimes I'll just get louder and I won't talk to them at all now sometimes joe like they're just constantly throwing some stupid thing at you and this happened to a friend of mine sort of almost happened to a friend of mine and it's really from him so it's also good thing to have a heckler in the other well no sooner had those words left my mouth then this guy walks up to my friend and says excuse me career a heckler commenting throughout my act and every time he did it I think nine times out of ten I got a great last that's probably part of the reason I love it there's always something new there's always something changing you always have to be dynamic writing new things writing now sometimes of course you've got a heckler that just ruins a show in the nail come up to you after say I really helped prize I might really and then they left we didn't go bowling with them with I looked at mark and I said did that coaches trivialized sex I I don't get it is that like a three point and they don't mind blue material and they're great crowd and I love them they were talking to us being the headliner Mr Marc Trinidad actually great guy and the rare occasion that I haven't driven which is always a treat and I was going to saskatoon and buddy picks me up right for me night in grand prairie drunk had sex and I just managed to roll a few games good for you grand prairie you've got a great sense of humor I love you the House and I thought that was great and we're Chitchat and we're just getting Outta town and he's from Ontario where you know there's a lot more you know uh-huh found a gas station so we turned off filled up with gas and then on our way back the same thing happens I don't know how awed loves that and you just have to be careful I think in my previous podcast part of my show you at the doors he goes hey hey right ice off the air you do your show was other women around number Oh a lot of comedians do not have licenses so if you do and you're half decently funny you'll get hired and if these are positives this will get you work because surprisingly for an occupation where people have to drive and we drive hours to go to in a movie a comedian and he gets a heckler and he'll just destroy him gale insult him that is a tool to handle people in gas stations and whatnot we got outside of Edmonton and he goes I'm running out of gas is there a gas station nearby the prairies man Asian over there how's it going Well it's blinking now I'm like great I might have to push the car to the gas station but we got there another time stories I get stories from the road again for any upcoming comedians. If you have a driver's license and a nice car apologize and here's a beer I felt so bad I hope you can forgive me in any walk away and I looked at my friend red water which is just outside of Edmonton fill up for gas at this

Garret Talks To Tim Cesolini About The Mayor Calling Him A White Supremacist

"The most comfortable call you. I was with you here. It is your morning ritual. T am seven hundred Tucson's. Most stimulating talk three things I think you need to know brought to you by stronger plumbing, Aaron solar number one Tim Sesa. Lean is going to join me in just a minute. Private citizen. Wanted to show his support. For Police by organizing an event to paint a thin blue line in front of DVD headquarters, calling a white supremacists. By Radical Regina Romero. Based on a couple of facebook memes that don't show that at all. Hates police so much she did that. She is now causing this private citizen. To get death. Threats can't even have kids play in his front yard anymore. All thanks to radical. Regina. This is insane. Second thing that I think you need to know. Doug Ducey looking like he's GONNA lose bigly. This lawsuit lifetime fitness will they dropped out. US bounds fitness. The ruling come today. about about the the governor. Overstepping his bounds crushing those businesses is saying you must close not everybody else, but you must close because of the Chinese virus by the way latest numbers Chinese virus June sixteenth, eighty five percent of inpatient beds in use. July fifth eighty four percent, what went down June sixteenth, eighty-three percent of ICU beds news July fifth eighty nine percents to six percent increase, which is normal. Boy. Oh boy third thing that I think you need to know. Is it is now coming out that a black lives matter leader in Toronto. Road white people genetic defects subhuman. Begging olive the power to not kill them. Isn't that Nice couple that with the guy that said we're GONNA? BURN DOWN! America is Hawk newsom black lives matter. WE'RE GONNA burn down America if we don't get what we want. And Regina gets a chance to actually support them by hanging a banner. And Nobody, the media's Regina about that. Three things I think you need to know all right Tim Cellini is just your regular average guy that supports police, and probably like you and me sees what's happening in America and can't believe it's actually happening Tim Joins US now, Tim, how're you doing man? All right sir. Excellent so just you know. Why to tell people why and I think I summed it up. But why did you decide to start this organization Tucson back the blue. Tucson back to blue was started by. The whole concept. To show law enforcement in our area. that. There are people that support them. In this day and age, that is the sole purpose. Of what we stand for. And you are one man and your second command for lack of a better term right because you you your guy on the board Ross is is Jewish guy. And I really doubt as as a Jew that I. am I really doubt that Jewish guy would want to be on the board and and do anything with a white supremacists right? We can predict I would definitely think so. What was Ross his reaction? By the way before we get to more about this about Radical Regina calling you a white supremacist. He was totally dumbfounded as well. You know he he couldn't believe it. He was like really wow. Lasted off basically you know. God you know in India. Deal with is we have to like enough is enough and I'm glad that you are standing up to her and to the entire Mu-. She's she's part of the mob. But let's how'd you guys come up with the idea to paint a thin blue line in front of TD headquarters? I mean that was really just from people talking on facebook. They. They just came together. You know the the whole community. Of these of people that support law enforcement simply just started talking. And that was the whole idea. You know it didn't come from me. It didn't come from Ross. It actually just came from. People that were talking on facebook through comments. That's how that whole thing with the the thin Blue Line getting painted in front of TVD headquarters came from. I just went with that. Yeah, okay, good night! Tim Says Selena's you're listening to. He is the organizer Creator of Tucson back the blue he's on Sti aim seven ninety and we were talking yesterday. Tell us about what happened on Thursday, this whole incident just happened on Thursday. Talk about how you got the permit, and then how the permit was revoked, had the whole process happened? I mean it was pretty straightforward. You know I told everybody. Hey, look! If we're GONNA do this. Let's do this the right way and do it the law abiding way 'cause. That's what we are standing for, so let's do it so. earlier in the week I I mean I tried getting ahold of city officials. To No avail I couldn't get anybody to call me back.

You can tell just by talking with me that I'm not no white supremacy. I don't have those ideologies as the mayor. is is clearly state and. It it's. It's really disheartening. When someone calls you those things and it brings you to. Your knees, it really does it hurts. I bet it does so. Let's continue Tim. You got the approval for the process three thirty or so on Thursday and in about an hour later. What happened? that people started posting within our group saying. Do you realize what just happened on twitter? And I'm like well. No and sure enough. They sent me the screen shots of the. tweet and it was. The mayor's. Head that is all over the news now? Saying that. I am a white supremacist and that. My ideologies don't have any place here in Tucson. And the permit got revoked. Just like that ended. They explain and if you don't want to say, you don't to explain why it was revoked. The whole the whole reason why? I was told from dot why the permit was revoked was because. I have? White supremacist ties in that I am. A white supremacists. That's what they told you. Yes! And, and they did you say. How do you know that you have any evidence anything like that? I sat there and said. What are you talking about and you like? My hands are tied. I'm doing what I am told to do. I'm doing what I'm told to do. Department transportation I'm doing what I'm told to do. Again my words, not yours. It's obvious that Regina made that happen. I'm doing what I'm told to do. This this is crazy. This is absolutely crazy Can you hang with because I gonNA talk about what has happened since then I wanNA talk about the event that took place because even though the Thin Blue Line. Wasn't painting you sold an event. I want to get to that and I want to talk about what has happened to your family. Since. A radical Ru- Radical Regina called you a white supremacist. I mean this is insane. That's coming up. Tim Says Cellini stay with me. Do not go anywhere. We will continue. Kfi Am seven, ninety. Tucson's most actually dot com.

Tim I, appreciate it. Tucson back the blue. So, Regina calls you a white supremacist. I need I need to know. What? Exactly was the reaction. Of of your friends and family when they heard of this. It. was I mean it, we we. We took a step back. We really did I was like. Really, where where is this coming from? and sort of like how dare you? Yeah. and. My oldest brother, he was a captain with Maricopa County Sheriff's department. And, he called me. and was like. What in the heck is going on down there? Why is this woman calling you a racist? I was like I have no idea. I didn't do anything to her. I don't even know her other than she's a mayor. and. She never tried to reach out to you, did she? Know Did. The police chief, the activist and chief Magnus Chris Magnus did he ever reach out to you and say thank you for supporting the police anything like that. No. Not A. Lot of the you know police officers here. Have shown a lot of support. You know, okay, and we. Supporting Yeah, we'RE GONNA we're, GonNa get to that especially with your event. That took place, but what was it? What has it been like now? The reaction since the the mayor went after you a private citizen. And called you a white supremacist. What what has been happening to you over the past few days? Plain and simple should put a target on my back. which is something that I did not call for? I. I am just a regular man. I'm a regular human being. And by her, calling me that. Calling me something that I'm not. She put a target on my back in my family's back. And Yeah we have received threats I had to call. You know Tucson police. For those to make the reports they had they've had people you know officers driving by? To check up. On me. You know to make sure that we're all right. Which is pretty disheartening. Those resources could be used elsewhere, but now because of a created problem. By the mayor. They're having to do that and that's wrong. You know I feel like you're defense. You feel your entire family's in danger. I did I mean and I do you know? It's sad when your wife you know just sits there and cries because she sits there and goes. Tim We we can't have the kids out in the front yard where they're used to playing. And we had to move with them basically to the backyard now only and. I have an eight year old, a five year old and a three year old. How do you explain that? Do not go in the front yard ever again? You know. They don't understand that they don't understand what's going on. They feel you know kids are smart. Kids are phenomenally smart. And they feel and know something's going on, but don't understand it. So what kind of trauma? Putting on them. She brought her family into it. With with her getting issues when somebody decided to go up in front of her house well. Did you realize you just did that to my kids? And brought my kids into this whole damn situation now. I don't think she did who was. Attacked me. Me All you want, but don't come after my family and my kids. Know She. She knew exactly what she was doing exactly what she was doing. before I. Ask you, Tim. This is Tim. Cellini Tucson back the blue on canisters teams of ninety before I getting any legal issues What was it like once? You had that revoked and your call the white supremacist. Did you then talk to the councilwoman? The Democrat Councilwoman Nicki Lee. What was her reaction to this? She was pretty astonished. you know. She. She's. She was pretty setback as well. She did not understand where this was coming from. and. Her her simple thing was I am so sorry. I mean I! Don't know what else we say No. One is there to say when someone does that. You know really. I mean. Are you thinking of of suing the mayor because you're a private citizen? And she just dragged you into the public and made horrific remarks about you based on by the way, let's talk about those real. Quick to facebook memes, now I saw the facebook memes, and and one of them was. It's look at this white supremacists. Looting and it was it your black people coming out actually looting and I know that went around because the media tried to create some kind of a story, saying that white supremacist were actually doing looting and burning down buildings in the riot started. And it's it. It was a fake news story. I saw the me myself. And then you another medium that said if you fly yours. It was a gay person with a pride flag will fly hours is a pickup truck with confederate flag. Timmy I looked at his. You know what you could fly whatever you want. I'll fly whatever I want. We have the freedom to do that. And she took a look at your means were not. They were not racist. White supremacist. She was looking I. Guarantee You and this is what's disgusting. She was looking for any thing to attack you to attack your credibility because she she doesn't want to see the police support in any way. That's how much she can't stand him. That's my take on them. And, I totally agree with that. You know first of all. Most of those you know the too that she found. Years ago. This wasn't just recent. You know every because everything. Recent in mine is of course of what's going on now, you know. You know I'll even explain those first of all everybody that has facebook you see something on facebook that you like, are you? You think might be funny or something. You just hit the share button. That's solely what I did. Against! Anything to do with gaze, no, I am not I have my one of my brothers I come from a large Italian family. You know I have eight brothers or the eight kids. There's seven boys and one girl. One of my brothers is gay. So do I reject gays. No, I do not. One of our best friends minding my wife's here in Tucson. Is Gay And he's actually in a sense. An uncle to my kids 'cause he's here all the time playing with us and joking around. And he's an uncle to our kids. That whole point of why I shared that because I thought it was funny, and you sort of touch base on it. Hey, if you guys can fly, why can't they fly? There's and it wasn't me even 'cause I. Don't fly the confederate flag. I could care less, but it was a true statement in the sense that if somebody can fly, there's why can't someone else fly? There's that was the point of that share, plus it was social media. Who really cares what goes on in social media? Because in a sense, it's fake news. So. Are You thinking about suing her? Are you thinking about going after because she has I mean, she's caused a Lotta damage in your life threats to your family death threats. Kids can't play on the ARD. Are you see you can't do that to a private citizen as a public visual? So, are you thinking about doing that? just because of on advice of every you know. A lot of people inside and outside of law enforcement. I have. put the word out there that I. I am looking for an attorney. I haven't secured one yet, but. I think. I definitely think that there has to be something done. Okay. Now when it comes to by this is Tim says Cellini Tucson back the blue on. Am Seven. Ninety Let's, let's talk about. Your events. You didn't paint the the thin Blue Line but tell me about the event. What happened approximately? How many showed up? I'm we had just about three hundred people on Saturday that came out to the Midtown substation off of Alvin on Twenty Second Street, that showed up in support of. The law enforcement officers in our area they line the streets. At one point. We had people on every corner of that intersection. It was a phenomenal showing. For support It was great you know we had. We even had the OM that showed up. of course they were on the other side, and they were chanting their stuff and I respect them and they can do that. That's a God given right. we had a couple of them. That actually came over onto our side. Still still doing their. chance and holding their. Sign. That was fine. It wasn't our place to sit there and say hey, you can't be all over here. because. This isn't about sides in that regard that. Hey, you WANNA be here in enchant your stuff you go ahead and you do that. That's you're right. I want to get to. Can you hang on for me because I got more I WANNA get to what Democrats were telling you when they were there? What what it was like when you talk to talk to the guy and what he said about what grab giant did all that stuff? And what what events you have in the future as well and how important is to stand up Tim says Cellini. I. Don't know if you even realized how important you are yet, but but you really are man. You'RE GONNA. Stay with me. We'll continue right here on Kennedy Dot Org. Gerald Lewis with you. It is your morning ritual. Can S. T. A. AM seven ninety two sons? Most stimulating talk. Three things I think you need to Know Number One Regina Romero. Calls a citizen that wants to show support for police, a white supremacist to try to drive the narrative, and he's now getting death threats Tim Sicily's. His name is GonNa join us again. Just a second second thing I think you need to the guy that organized the whole idea of painting a thin Blue Line of police headquarters second thing that I think you need to know. Is that It looks like Doug Ducey I mean I think he's GonNa get smacked down a- smacked down. Today by adjudge any mountainside fitness lawsuits. Question is what we'll do. See do in reaction to it. Is he going to go full crazy? Close everything what the heck is going to happen? We don't know we will. We will find out by the way again. the numbers, the raw numbers from the Arizona Department, Health Services show that man. It looks like we're doing all right. June sixteenth eighty-five percent patients beds in use July fifth eighty four June sixteen eighty-three percent ICU beds, a news, July fifth eighty nine. How about that? Third thing I think you need to know is that. Story's coming out the CDC may SUNA. Say the Chinese. Virus will lose his epidemic status because it's going to be down below five percent of responsible of of all deaths. GonNa Happen very soon. Get, the overreaction is crazy three things. I think you need to know. All right, let's join again. Let's welcome back Tim Cellini Tucson back the blue. That is five. Oh One C., three five three right? You guys You did that right Tim. Your when I went INC and made this into a actual organization we did go five a one three see. Okay so I have questions and I. Know We kind of talked about this. And I'm getting hit up by listeners over and over and over again is there any chance and one of them said why not? Why doesn't Tim have fifty different? People apply for a permit to paint a thin blue. Line Because Ridge is Regina GonNa then call fifty of these people, White Supremacists, or make something about every single one of them. It might be a good way to actually again. Publicly Expose how much she She dislikes cops. I would agree and actually that was. Brought into subject yesterday and I sat down with a local business owner. He's in the life insurance. Business now, but prior to that he was law enforcement. did many different things throughout. His career as a law enforcement officer from undercover drug operations, different things I'm not gonNA. Say His name but. Great Guy, He's a Latino American. Sat down came forward with myself and Ross and wanted to apply and. have her try to deny him, so we did reach out to The Department of Transportation yesterday. And we did ask about that and we were told that. As of this time, they were advised that there will be no permits at this time issued for anything relating to. Painting on streets. Unbelievable unbelievable, so she can have the Tuzon tax payers pay for a black lives. Matter Street mural. Right on the pavement. She can have Tucson. Tax Payers pay thirty three hundred forty nine bucks per he banner she she flies. Nobody else in the media is going to ask her about the Marxist ties. That's what black lives matter is. It's a Marxist organization. They'll burn down America to get what they want they call. Call for the deaths of COPS. She supports it and gets away with it. This is incredible. This is why you're very important person to him. and I don't WanNa. Get freaked out by, but you're very I'm getting emails out the WAZOO. People are mad. They want to support you. That's why keep saying. We can't be the silent majority anymore. We have to just be the majority. We have to be outspoken majority. When you had your event Tim. We'll talk more than a minute. When you had your event, you told me there are a bunch of Democrats that showed up people that literally told you I'm a Democrat. What happened with that. And they did and I was. You know. I didn't care you. Know it really in the sense. Red White Blue Purple Black I. don't care. If you support law enforcement. That's what matters. And, it was awesome that some of them came forward and sat there and said Hey, you know. It seems like you know. Nowadays the only people that are supporting law enforcement are Republican, but I'm a democrat. And I stand with you. And I applaud you for what you're doing. And I support! Our local law enforcement. That was awesome. I loved it because. That's the whole point end of the day. That's what this is about. Is Supporting law enforcement. That's it you know there. Might Use a number. Well once I. What did they say about Regina because I look, this is all about supporting law enforcement, but if we have feckless, radical leaders then then you know it it. It doesn't even matter as much because we're just getting overruled here. What did some of them? Tell You I thought? This is the most important part of this entire situation. What did they tell you about Regina? What was their opinion that they that they were totally against what she's doing, they you know. To in particular sat there and clearly said. If. She can allow the banner to be flown on City Hall with our taxpayer money. And to paint. Black lives matter on. One of the streets. Then why can't we do? A Thin Blue Line in support of police? Nothing racist about this. But a simple blue line. which has been long known that it's that Blue Line stands for police officers first responders. Yep, YEP, they say. Well Rene. They were against her. And did they say because I don't want to put words in your mouth? But did you say that? They told you that they would never devoted for, but they would never do it again. Yes, they did. This. This is a big deal. Man Tim says Laney's on. Can T am seven ninety? Tucson back the blue. So, talk about your conversation you had with the black lives matter in one of the black lives matter leaders out of the twenty twenty five that showed up at the event. Because he talked to you about Regina as well. What did he say about what Regina was doing to you? He thought it was. You know. Pretty wrong of her to call someone out with no basis on racism or a of of my racist ties. he sat there and said you know you're. You're being done dirty for political reasons. And that it never should have happened. He didn't think of me like that. At all. And I sat there and talked to this gentleman for a while on. Our side of the street. And there's this incredible. The Black Lives Matter I. Said Regina is basically using you to push her agenda? He even he even. He knew that you were not a white supremacist. Correct. This news I'm pretty sure that I was there to support police officers. That's it. That's it. and. What did you know and and you guys you? You said you. Let him talk about thirty minutes. You did not see eye to eye, but that was it. You talked and that was it. We came together and we talked exactly. You know that was the whole point you know. Why can't people just talk nowadays? Do they do we always have to argue and go out? You know come on. I'm married. You know. Anybody that's married in this World No. You're going to have arguments at times. You know with your with your spouse. It doesn't matter. You can't see eye to eye on every subject. Do you learn to listen to each other and open lines of communication. That's being a proper citizen in this society. When you open those doors and you listen to other people constructively. You. Don't sit there and. ARGUE EVERY POINT! So how important is it Tim? For people to be like you because you're not backing down from this at all, are you? I'm not you know I've talked to many people. yourself included you know and. I I'm going to go with this. This is not going to end with just me cowering in the back and being. As many people have put it the silent majority. This isn't me about you know? She wanted to put me into the limelight and the spotlight. I'm not going to cower. You know I'm not that type of a person. My Dad, you know God rest his soul. taught. Me Great Values and I'm GonNa, go with those. That's what this is about. You know learning values in this day and age, and if she wants to come up against me well, you've got your fifteen minutes of fame I'm going with mine. Good for you, man and I want more people to support you. I want more people to stand up because again they're trained to do. This is what radicals do. They're trained to isolate one person to intimidate and to make an example of and she tried to do that to use nobody else with pipe up and I think she's just. She's just woken a sleeping giant, and and even Democrats have had enough because she is such a divisive, bad human, being that she would literally paint you as a white supremacist to cause your family harm. based on garbage. Just because he disagrees with you, she's she's a bad human being I hope more people can support you. What other events are you going to have? And where can people go to find out more information to to support you join you. like I said we're. We're in the beginning stages of everything with Tucson back the. Blue Line simply right now. We are only on facebook so you can Go onto facebook and search Tucson back the Blue Line. Go ahead and join We'll eventually get you in.

This has nothing to do with the money. Everything that we do get is simply for Tucson back the blue and will be used that way. Nobody's getting anything from this.

Thank you, all and I'm glad to be looking at these amazing faces and imagining everyone who's listening. Bit Emotional actually to see everyone because it's exactly a year ago that we wrapped show. And my last day. assist to say goodbye actually didn't show up. Thank you Casey for covering that for me, because I was sick. And obviously so much has happened in this year, and before we launched in can't wait to talk about why or this group together. I JUST WANNA. Say our well wishes to those in the world who are dealing with Covid, either physically or financially and. Sent take a moment just to kind of. Send our best out into the world. As I was thinking of this panel stayed up all night. Just asking all these questions, there's all these women here that actually haven't gone to ask certain questions because we work so hard when we're together. And? A theme emerged for me and it was that of trust and what I really WanNa talk about is how we all. Learn to trust each other or those physicians you represent, and how we gain trust and. And again as about this morning. Hit Me. Once again like a lady bowl, especially in light of the events of this week at the opening, words of watchmen, our trust in the law. And my heartfelt grief for all those who cannot. But with that we have Regina King. extraordinaire hung. Director. Karen Wacker producer. You PM Kerry Bruno Assistant Director, Casey, cuddle assistant director and stuff green. My. The other director that I feel like if I didn't exist, she's Wear one in the same. An will explain that as we go. So I'd really love to launch in with Regina. Regina I met ANA. Male can crime. And to this day I remember vividly. The moment I think I. Wind Your Trust and down. And curious if it's the same story but right, yeah, why don't we start bear and then? I'll ask more about that. I don't know the same story. I think for me just always going in. To With the new director. Especially when you're talking about episodes, you always I love storytelling and. I want everyone involved to respect the art of it and As an actor I think are all actors. We had experiences where. Guests director come in in a dozen feel like they respect the art of storytelling in needs to take it. A step further feels like they don't respect. Our of your character in particular you know. In that probably just being an actor vulnerable in weeks all about us. That you get into that space so. I'M NOT GONNA lie whenever a new director comes in. You know they're. They're day later on knowing, but they they're. They are cheating in tests. and. Art of that. Is You know just asking them as many questions? As I could go to see what. When they done to familiarize themselves with this show or the character, and so probably needed I coming in. She felt that I. Don't have them poker face. You know I'm very much shy so. It was now. And I don't remember the eight sacked. that. I guess need one March says I do. Is. When it happened, I wanted to come back in watcher direct on. A scene that I was read, so came to work than the next day. Just because I was like okay, not only did he pass the test the this? This director's special in your. Learn in all circumstances whether it's set on learning, what not to do or learning that I can do? And at that point in American crime, or was inspiring director at done a few things, but Not much and I just sell like got washed her work because When you're working with director, you don't get to watch sin work. You're working together so I needed to experience this brilliance from and from from the outside the sidelines, so I came back and seeing that. You're doing. A. Techno Crane and it was following whose character. The boy the Moi. Yes, yes, and you was! It was. The scene was starting to be settled tonight. Shot, but you were starting to set it up during the day when it was still adjust and yes. I was just so interest with. In thought I did feel it when we were working together but I was just so interesting. How you were able to have a commanding presence, but but still. Be kind still. Gingele. and. I think the people. You hear the word Ginger when you think of that as that that's not strength, but that's actually requires. And To His it was. It was rewarding indefinitely I was able to. As I went on to the next project. That I was directly. I definitely was able to kind of tap into The the the understanding that genital in-command presence can be. Charity synonymous they can. They can happen together. Lewis Felt like. It was we were doing the scene where you were sitting in the Church Hughes and it was a private moment your alone, but it was another. Shot and the camera. The the crane was fussy and malfunctioning and the EIB. Threw a fit loudly. and. It was really disrupted. And and I saw that and I apologize in the connected. Would you and I think they're? Just clicked and I know that was the moment that moment I knew I had wandered. Justice on. You showed up to say. Oh my God. I, hadn't you? You don't even know you don't have the trust, so you have it. It just really moved me that you showed up to as up here and and since that Moment Regina I. Call Each Other as directors yet. When we're working together on watchmen, actor-director donets because you take off the director hat and you let. Commas the after and I'm trying to several timer It's unbelievable trust. GonNa. Come, back to Regina. That what you were just saying gene led me to rethink Karen. And early on in track when we're starting to amass. Crew Ron's words, no astle policy. All the women on the show Karen was the one I hadn't met in person and I didn't. I didn't know you coming in, but I knew Jaycee. And? I called Casey because hazing. I had done a couple. Shoes is united on leftovers. season two when she was a second, and then she I assisted, but finale of American crimes season two with me but so I called pc and I said WHO's this Karen Wacker Cana trustor? She's like she's the main thing in. Case Casey admitted Karen had already called Casey to find out about me. and. Karen head worked on leftovers. Season One serves our deepen trust. and. I'll say hi the thing then I believe he's watching. Watching the women. Karen I actually feel everybody here. Your role is the biggest mystery to me. It has a because you do your job so well, and I can trust you so much. I don't know what you do. That what I do know. Is that the crew? We had a nominal crew. Held together through thick and thin. And that people say just that Karen that can and I also know as a director you. Decisions you make. Every day land on. 'cause you are controlling. You know where the money goes and the agee's I know our. Links between the Prado's. Wishes of the director and then practical logistical do it through new. But so. How would you describe. How you earn people's trust, and what people do? That it make you trust them. Corroborative Eggers when everybody and I think that I think that my job. In working with a budget and then also working with the crew and I think that. in order you. People's trust. You have to trust them in their job. And I You knock in errol not always, but when I'm talking to people about working on shows that I'm doing whether or not they're good. And Llamas in Kenya, right, you don't want assholes on our show and doesn't. Make for a good work, environment and different people want to come to work. So That's. Definitely. One of the best. One of the best and guide is putting together I don't think a lot. People know exactly what the job how to read and here you for anybody internally. Do something wrong So. A new make mistakes the fact that Ito that exactly now are decisions that I make makes me really ill, really good and happy, and I know that sounds weird, but it means that. but everything being flow release on that show. And you're right. I think that. How did you the incredible group of people that we had on that show? I don't. Think that we could've Adam better group of people. We, it wired stature hard. Sharon ceremony variables and cermonies of the puzzle that we had to have. A Good Gruber in order to accomplish what we get on that show you know. Yeah. Thank you. I'll talk about Kerry Renault next Jerry, I met on Westworld and what you'll start to see a years time. What, was amazing getting to be a part of the show from the beginning was getting all. The people kind of the greatest hints from the author shows a down in the last five to ten years. DP's Craig Middleton Andrea wreck hairy. I met on Westworld. And, Casey was leftovers on American crime and and Steph and I had overlapped on the Americans and. became. Cow House. Both on the human relented and a career level on its industries, then an invaluable sounding boards Snia on both, and it was so signing to get to bring her on this. Harry and Casey. I'd love to hear you both talk about. What's really interesting what you have to do? Is You know obviously you're working with director by also working with the rotating eighty. And how does that in a collaboration from ad? Two Ad is you're rotating with even though specifically rotator cross each other. In your careers experiences light and How you see your role between director and Karen. Regina. I know that's a big question, but. You know kind of. The mind trust where no. Where's that come from? Kerry, why don't you go first and then Casey? I'll address In general You know I think this is trusting Karen. I usually go into ultimately or unique heals me, as I go to production sort of knowing with a basic trust like okay, everybody's here because they know how to do their jobs and they want to be here and And then for me, I. I feel I I'll have to earn people's trust. By simply Showing people that I'm willing to give every ounce of myself in order to make. Something happened for for them, and so then the trick is between, say the director and the PM like okay. The the director might one this. The GM says well. I would love that, but we can't afford it. So how can you You know and meeting the middle and so then I feel like sometimes it's my job. To! Of. When those things together and come up with some kind of compromise? That everybody feels comfortable with and. And also just you might part is as much as I as I can. In terms of working. With other A. You I think it is sometimes calling around. Hey, have you worked with so-and-so? Houses are what are they like you know and then there's a few holly Like. Things that somebody would say that you can immediately now okay. This person is like this you know. Mellow or or efficient or Aggressive you know any kind of call where? You would say okay. Okay, I think I kind of know that our. AD. And, then you know then you meet that person and. Although, it gives you sort of like a for example with. Her amazing, funny, awesome in so I went. You know you'd go into that with like? Okay? She's amazing. Awesome, you know and. Of course as you get, you know somebody. You obviously make the decision for yourself with PC's easy. She's amazing. Fine Awesome, so it's true. Everybody believes it. So that was easy and I think in terms of I think it's just you know generally I think it's good to kind of trust the other ideas much as you can like. Give as much as you can to the other person so that they can. Whatever you know so that they can also succeed in what they're doing. Because ultimately were all team. You want everybody. And I guess to address. The Trust of actors in Eighties Damn Coin Is. Seeking to Regina or any cast member is You know. Making sure that they're arriving June environment that feel safe and feels like. We're ready for them to do their work and so that whether it's quiet or You Know Com-. Anything that we can do to do that and that's not only just when. You know, they're coming to shoot, but also when they're going to base camp and getting ready because I think that's also a process where where is very important for the environment should be. Nice and I. Think you know, send you hire people okay. I know this really. A Lotta of to it base candies. WHO CAN WE PUT IN BASE CANTU? Department that that will be the face of of. Of the show the minute that the actors rive you know, and then also who who is the second. The second good indicator. Are they telling them everything a to know? And you trust that they are obviously maybe until something goes. Awry, you know or some information wasn't asked. And you know I think in general Those are details like you can just okay, so something goes wrong or something doesn't happen. You can kinda talk with somebody in sort of work it out. I think your your trust enough. People can in can take information that might be critical, and then, and then turn it into a positive. You know so. I think I've answered. These questions but her. US. Syrian? So I'd. Trust lands for saw Karen. Roswell Lane. This formulated animal. Dealer show. Those general is The action There's this. Like. What is reality what we're trying to per year? To figure out a way can be. Sustainability units are rowing on order. Just. Team our as we. At Yeah as we. Tasked with this this. I came in. Later season eight came in. There was knowledgeable. So! Care would be like just you know reality how? Are Shot sees is the most precise show I never banharn now so. So I think that. In helping me make the best plan in what they improve, and then the trust knowing that I am trying to invest altogether I think this is the. Worst, but this money it has curia released. From? Directors rain or that lights. Red Flag with that out. It's not all saline or POSSE money. Doing in general. We are all getting our jobs. You're all resenting trying to. Tell, you know make a great show. This along the way to get there. Are. Zones are so. Arise just is. There any team which is helpful is not so. Good. On. Now. then. Inch, working with other ADI's carry any general passing in the night at you like you're laughing uses. I didn't cherry on her show. US sleater, but The other easier there.

Be Salmon rates low. Randy's. and. Avoid surprises. You Trust that way on. Jennifer's degree as We had that. Dynamic I think helps. Round Diversity, In the attic zone, but yeah I think it's just. Avoid surprises and a sense that your looking out for their vestiges. Efforts. and. It all comes to a cast, says in front of the like, so we asked to nick fat as possible everything we leading up to that. So. Well? That you. Let's say their times zoo. Imagine Young. Regarding what Cherry Senate about team, Canada. YOU IS A. allies. To! CARRIES! It. Trying. Kind. I want everyone on the scene scene. Mice I. Am, I asked. The No. Policy that houses the strong. Eating fewer problems Erin from our our world in. The CAST. Details some. Awesome. Thank you. A! Couple words are coming to my mind as I hear everyone's talking. Work at the number, one being collaborative entrance parent and I. I was thinking about what you know some of these. Things I do when I come on earlier. It's as a did what this show clauses actually distribute. The low book I mean. To get the job I. Send it to everyone the entire crew and the cast and And I saw that it actually surprised people, but I felt why not let everyone know in? See the movie that we're all trying to make. And and also. Passion I mean that you just can't is contagious You know if you love it hopefully, the next person will. those are the two things that really trying. To spread the love and enthusiasm for the show, and or how harder to work because everybody. Is Sacrificing, a lot of. Time from the home. You know that's just. Goes with the territory. Maybe that'll be changing. RENOVATE AS WE COME OUT OF. To to turn. But staff. High. And I just want to carry was talking. I remember. Cherry was cold to I to Win Cherries Trust and. You know instead of you had a very similar to mine and. and. Thing. We Leap Ben and it's funny to remember these moments trusts because it happens in the first thing by day two day three feel ideally this person it's. It's very funny. Remember off beaches. The love is so deep between all of these legal here. But I am just. Curious to hear from your is When you arrive as the guest director What you know how you assess. The situation like kind of. Just talk about trust again from both sides like how how people earn your trust and how we And how you? You know. What values you how? I'M GONNA pause there before. Let us talk to say. That! You know I know I. Got To be producing actor on this that also learn so much from the producing directors gives knee break, and from the different shows, and worked on and leftovers really was highlight. media leader was extraordinarily in terms of setting me up for success, and then the way they were ran that show the way demon ran. Is that there's not a writer on? China. Run it with you. It's you are running that episode. You are directing it. You are the person making all the decisions in real time felt so much like being on making a future. And in that was so important to need to pass that on that the directors came I didn't WanNa be onset. It's you know to. Trust I needed to trust. You. Can you hear me okay? I was just thinking. That S-. Steve Your husband when we were traveling to the DJ awards together. To. Win. said that. Nassar we would talk is sometimes either. You weren't in town or physically together. are you sorry you were just juggling to the twelve other things while I was prepping my episode. You would. Turn to him and say God. She asked a really good question. And I feel like so much of an episodic directors. Journey those first few days are. Having done the the internal work of getting to know. Your unscripted. If you have it your your your piece of the storytelling as for as you can understand it, you come into this very compressed prep. With so many resources, and so many questions, and I feel like a lot of was. Because there was trust kind of again like as. Basic. Energetically this feeling of trust an invitation. That it's an invitation to learn. Who Do I trust with which question? And then as we ask the questions together. We all kind of get to see each other. And we all start hundred I start to understand. Okay, we'll He's talking to Christian and this way I start to see their trust their relationship, and how they are bringing you into the conversation in how you're asking questions and how? Our show run her. WHO has this vision is is? is both. Supplying inspiration, but also really listening to US and end in mid process in in the middle of a series I think the privileges. you're you're in the middle of all this trust building? It's still happening and it's still an it's. It's You're cutting coming into, and you can admire what has been built, and you can be additive and I think that I that only that starts with the with the with the invitation, and the welcoming that you provide as producing director as EP as trailblazer, and it continues when. There's a sort of a natural curve of. Of. Not just seeing everyone's talent, but I guess trust is nuanced. I'm going to trust this person I'm I'm feeling trust around money here. This isn't I'm not being limited. I'm being guided with windward, really available from this person and here I'm finding while planning a little keyhole in today's brain. Through Christian and Nikki wild like in through Stephen and I can use that. With my with my questions. and. Then, of course, you're looping back to your own empowerment to pitch into to with passion like you just said. Because in not in not environment created you are free, have big dreams about your episode. Which I really felt. It was my episode such. A gift in so many ways, but together with Tim. We just could there just felt like every idea. Can matter in this group and we can trust each other with. Interrogation nature of interrogation and the idea that's thoughtful and respectful and not fear based I. Guess that's a really big. Episodic director you can go into shows in just feel the fear that slowly in whether it's a sort of dominance. Or closed leader or someone who just will more likely make you feel not good enough than good enough to be there, and is so insipid and contagious in Abreu. And I just this was just the quite the opposite and I think. Then, you're inspired to create the same environment for those you. You're your then. RELIG-. To lead. Mice I'm not. One thing I learned also in similarly is that. When you show up to show that if you're dropping in on an episode. Is Clear from the moment you arrive or even the emails before you arrive where whether you're arriving as. An, invited guest, and or the substitute teacher and. And it's it's Keller. It's it's the ladder and I know they're not doing consciously. In that's from all the way top to the all the way through the crew. And so that was something so the difference when I arrived, stealing appreciated I. Just was already. It took so much of the work. The political work aside so could just do the job and focus on the creativity, and that was so important to me, bringing the directors on the show and I really. In advance wanted you guys to feel welcome and made sure. To spread the word that so-and-so's arriving here. She's awesome. I. Trust them listen we do. So I'm so glad you felt that way and. And that makes me WANNA concern back again to Regina. You know as an actor you know lot of. Feeling most audience has thought a lot about the actor director relationship by Lob Wet, Carrie Ann Casey said of the truth is. You know obviously a lot of the work. The character you're doing. In weather with the director or talking Damon directly. but I I always Sayer. The performance does start. in the car ride to set or in the mega failure like that world is so important, because whatever happens in their that energy hams to. So, could you talk about just from your perspective? Navy as an AG. I mean as an actor and now director directing laci center procedure. But what your relationship to a dis are and to Karen GM like I. Know You've got a direct channel to them as well and when you Kinda, choose to go to all these. Had choose to go to. Right. That's a great question because it is choosing win in. Where to go to you know Karen? You know it's always gonNA CAIRN. A KID! You. Don't WanNa earn your trump card she soon. But the thing that's very interesting in this conversation. About Kerry and Casey you the? Say Deep Position. Fairly. The glue that that. Together and you know on a given day from. Personal things that could be going on with an actor to the lines aren't quite right in you know the. You're having with the writer is not facing whatever it is, that's the problem to. Another actor you had a problem with you know Casey and Kerry. Get this information and has to decide whether or not you're gonNA. Reach secure, or they're gonNA. ITCHY, McCall or they're going to bring it to step and if they. Have to tailor it. Herbie tely so that the everything doesn't emplo. Win Or is the June deliver? Send Information and finally having the experience as a director for the first time you come back to set, and you sat all of that so much more so I would say that becoming a director definitely changed the way I mutated or what I communicate to Director Producer. AD. At, coming back to? The first thing that I did after I. DRINK IT I definitely can say when we're talking about trust. trusted the first eighties even more in realize. How while I knew. They are a necessity. How much they can be an ally and how And how it is important. to be very clear with information on them, and and know that if I am giving it to them emotionally. have created enough trust with them that they're not going to take advantage of that on because sometimes especially depending Washington, We have a lot of emotional scenes. emotional scenes happening at three in the morning. and. A lot of times and have to lean on cheerier Casey to Let. Director know that This Su. I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA be. In and. You know sometimes I. be relating back to them very passionately. and sometimes you. Just especially with case I, already having establish relationship a prior to Washington we. Just be a look you know. Kind Kinda like get that. Okay. Yeah, We make sure read me when when we when she hits the sack. We get through this because it's a emotional scenes are really. They take a lot out of them. You and you want to respect the rest of the crew and you know they that in order for us to reach the finish line can't reach it without. Doing your jobs, but at the end of the day. No one is looking. At craze when it's bad performance to see you know who the caraman was our camera person is. I edges a my. My my level of communication. Communication. With the producers and Directors definitely. Change for the better after adding directed myself. I'd say again another unifying, but here for me story I and that. Though thing I feel out so early on leading a crew member and especially eighties Karen And producers and the people that just means the world to me are the ones that put story Earth Casey said like one. There's a problem. In collaboration to find the solution and. I've been on shows where you know. I'm sitting at table with. A lot of people in there, looking at me and bright will. How are you GONNA do that and A big. From you wait their side people from the. Dj here this is a team. Dj Effort you're telling me this much time. This much story to tell help and. And just like when you feel ran away that. Everybody on the crew is truly reading these words and is so excited to tell this story Just, so supportive and and and makes you really trust again that those logistics all decisions allocating time and money and resources are all there to put the best version of the story on. You know because we all will into the people that are just running the numbers on one hand in the. Lena suggested I remember one job and she in somebody having coming, learn languages are currency we. Even save ten thousand dollars. Why? You know. That's. That's a shot or shots, or you know I you know it's like. I. Understand you know actually Karen it's great questions you. About, trust like HBO is trusting us with this enormous budget and You! Know how? How do you kind of make that Ridge? You have to be fiscally responsible in can't coming in over budget or over time every day. How'd you didn't do that? You can one story on. Anta have the numbers see reasonable on this project? I had an amazing partners with Ron and Joe and I. think that we We. You just have to look at the bigger picture. And I think whenever we're discussing budget problems or Trying to sign solutions with Altogether, but it's more of a team effort like Ralph kind of looking at it as like whenever you were. In a place where we saw something that was going to be more expensive or something that we weren't able to obtain budgetarily, we were pretty vocal about it with everybody, and it seemed like we're never would have production meetings or her meetings. We would bring those things up with everyone, and we would all come up with the Sushi error and I guess what you have to do. As a group, I mean I keep saying it may sound super lame, but it's like such a team effort. And and in order for it to be successful. It has to be a team effort in my opinion and I think that's what works out. Successfully on shows that I've been, you know lucky to be a part of so, and that's something that I learned over the years of doing this job. I think. The easiest answer is no. The hardest? Now. The her. Zina's to try to figure out us. Right. I mean no is so easy and it was like section. Easy answer for me when I first started this job, but that doesn't get you where you want him in the end. Right yeah so. Thank, you for not saying no. Times as you did it. Again collaboration I think all of us. I think most of us go into film as where artists who want to work with people and has a team and. So that those are my questions. I don't know any of the palace. Have questions or if you want to open up now to audience. This is then. Delicious. And if you guys have any questions? I don't have any questions. I. JUST WANNA! Say, this is just. Know when we first. Got On and and and said hi everybody. Kinda got chills because this is In in a lot of ways groundbreaking in. worked, for so many years to have reduces meeting. Women in these physicians at the same time. I. Don't think I've ever had that before on a project. That I don't love. The men but to have low spoke about Niki in having the command for presents. The something that all of you. And and and. Still Are A. Salih gentle and how the community residents? In I've experienced That in a way. That was just magnified. It started you know. Niki when Casey properly or Nikki, and then now it's just you know to the when she three or five six power so. I just WANNA say how much I appreciate. You guys are really really do. When the experience on watchmen suggested to have the opportunity to say to all of you together you know is is unique at the moment. When you when these moments come so I just WanNa say thank you I love you ladies. In love you to. Resume now they can up some questions. I cannot thank you all so marsabit incredibly. Inspiring feel like my heart is. Thank you a bunch of questions. Will just jump in. Questions from Shaw a really interesting did the. Crash Course on the actual Tulsa massacre. And, she's assuming. Crew members nothing about. Carrie carrying I can talk to that They didn't have to, but they were well invited to Damon had introduced. Need to a book, and and then I quickly shared books carries. A burning the burning, yeah, the marine. Madigan yeah, so I read that and just underline everything and carry had her whole to read it, and then we. We came up with. The story of the actual. Film Damon row this extraordinary C.. You know you start in the theater. Father comes in they run. You know I knew the Gr she that we had to go and get into a garage. And then what we did was we pulled the actual. Events that happened on that day. And then in that sequence in elect carry talk a little more to that, but. In advance. It was the first day of filming, am. I demon to write a letter to the cast and crew. To. Prepare and also. Honor. The victims of the event in all the people that we're going to have to reenact this because it was brutal. You're asking people to reenact brutal things whether they're a victim or a perpetrator and on the morning of the first day of filming on the set. We had a priest. And less. but carry. I would love you to talk about It was the your quests net. We rehearse in a dance. Background was unprecedented. Deny experience and you just on your own gone trading the boards for people to be able to look at our. The today's filming. On me, Yeah, I was so. Will first of all I just want to say that in in tandem with Lisa's shorts, who was my second eighty and who is equally passionate about bringing this story? To screen in the most Like Honest and genuine way we. Obviously read the book. did a lot of underlining light. Nikki created lists of certain things. that. We knew background could do little vignettes behind. He's right like. Basically the cast moving from Point A. Point B. from the to the garage, and who is kind along route so you know we were. We works together with Niki create vignettes that could be happening that historically accurate You know in the in the bathroom and we created. Yes, we created boards of. We did a lot more research than just APO covetously we we had, we did have a rehearsal with with the background which yes is pretty unprecedented I mean. Since That was sort of the started it and I recently did another thing that required. US to do that as well and We Created A. You know a Ma a three D ma with the. it's a layout of the the set and kind of in advance. You doubt what everybody was doing. That wasn't at all stunts and all the the people In we showed them. We show them what they wanted everybody to do. And during a rehearsal, we spent a lot of time most of the time really telling everybody about this massacre Both labeled riot, but it was truly just a massacre and. And You know I think. It was important for us especially working You know we people that are going to be performing acid a brutal. You know we have white people at reforming asks against black people, and of course that makes them uncomfortable. Lackey bowls is sort of receiving that treatment. That's uncomfortable and so it was really important for us. To get the story out in by the way, no, I I could say I never I never heard of it prior to that and I think most of us had. I, think my ag Lisa, had a passing, but we never really examined it like we did for this and I just felt like I knew that. This is so important to get right. We all did right. I the many discussions about it. From top to bottom and so. You know talking with the background and we created like you. He didn't rehearse with every single member, but we had a core of like I think it was fifty, maybe a hundred people and In totally worked about two hundred fifty people on set and. we invite not only we talk about the subject. We invited people's talk about it, and so it was like this really beautiful. Y- where we just sort of discussed this event and We ended up garnering the trust of all these people, and when I tell you that I never ever seen background. Operate the way these people did. In. under the blazing Sun chewed as straight and I never felt like anybody was. Like, it was just an incredible effort. and. And I think it was because we did rehearsal We had a lot of people who felt like. Wow, these people really want to bring something to stream as important. Nobody knows about a lot of people that we rehearsing with black and white included not know about it our floor by this event so I feel like You know in a way it was. It was just a very important. Embarrass special. We did we had a creases aim talks Ayman gig words, they call. So I slow. And, then it was like and then we just started, and it was so powerful even that I shot seeing everybody. Then stunt, man and the background and the actors the cast. was like it was just. Mind blowing I really feel like of anything I've ever done a stanton The most important and the best thing I've ever done. Onsite? Question started blaming. But I also beautifully. Thank you ain't really. It was extraordinarily powerful thing to go through. And I want to tie that back to what Karen does like again. I can't. San Nas. How unique it is that you guys approved this commercial. We, did it? We brought in fifty background and. That asked the I I saw the look in the faces on. We ask those like. Then like then we really should. This is the aggregate upside you know. We wanted three days to shoot at. We had it in a half as half. The garage. so again just seen to have the trust in the people, Sharon Ron. Joe Who are the producers just saying? Yes, that is money well spent and that they reset. IOS carries idea. You know in that it will such a good idea that people that thought this saying that you know best idea windsor there. It was a safe space to save things that might be out of the box, right? Could be, heard and. You know and I also WanNa again HBO's investment in getting this right now that the very first place I went location scouting, we did a five state toured I'm. That we would land in Atlanta that we started in also, we started in Greenwood. You know we went there and again that's. Having that support from the studio to get division right? was invaluable. We met with people in Greenwood and software stood. musty slices are on me little. Pieces! and. The two kind of big indicators on the day of filming to me or the two days. Are To that we were that we were doing it. As best as we could was. A scene background between takes just sitting on a bench laughing and these are people who are just a moment ago, getting thrown over bench or cradling summaries like weeping and to see the baron actors were still having a great time was again a huge. You know credits to carry in her. and then our little boy A. Dad. they met I think I got them together just once or for filming But. Mostly I saw the most beautiful thing the second day because on day, one. I mean. Boys in that man's arms all day long own and just never stopped Halley all the and for all of this takes. And on day two following any. Onto said, and without even making eye contact. He just levitated. And it was late. They are in that amount of terrain. There was that level of trust. And in a way as a great metaphor for what we're all doing with each other. While, it's beautiful. Getting a lot of questions. So. You're out what it is. What it is. What did you included in? How did you put it together? I would put it together. To get the job or when you already had it, and who love to hear from? Regina to the set also, how did you? Will this little. If any at all. So look book is literally a book and I'll grab it when somebody talks next, they'll show it, but. When I got it I made it. To win the job. You Know Jason and I spoke. T sent me the script i. read the script, and then I call them up and like just said all these words why? I had to do it at Wyatt moved resell much how I saw it. And he's like that's awesome now there's a couple other people who are wanting this job to. Can you put something down in a slight? So I, did and I am and what I literally did was an essay on why I had to direct this, and then I visually wrote. pull the images to say this is what this is pointed book like and had tests going along with it up like why I was making those choices along the way because there's any director at that point is very subjective. You know and there's no wrong. It's just a choice and I felt. United that also for clause in Donna Troy other pieces I plan to do and. Then everybody. There's no mystery as to what's in the end up on. What the goal is I find that really invaluable. Technically worked with designer because I am. Not Cecchi that way, and so I say to the designer. These are the movies I definitely employing images from these are the categories I want them to go in, and then they do a whole other level of. Search and they they take those words, and then for day just do an image search, and then I go through the images. Tag. They love and then and then they. You know formats. So I'm reading the words angry. mean the ideas and together we is organize it. And Run Grab it while somebody answers your question. Ultra states really lovely to anything we all as. As crew members, episodic directors definitely and I think every remember love showing up to a book and Niki didn't only have a look book available. Because we have really seen the show yet. At this point, we've just arrives, and then you also had a world book. Was Incredible, which was also? The breath research that had been and the kind of source material. So visitsanjuans you know it's just ideas suggest different categories but. Out there in the industry can. Status Need on Regina's made on. You know it's. You can get your hands on. kind of becomes our shared. Bible I guess for the show and I think we are always testing argues against that and expanding it in dialogue but it certainly provides sort of touched on, and it was really fun about the production office. It was sort of a coffee table setting. The original source material in the world. And I just remember feeling. This is one of the most visual. Experiences I've had walking into show. so yeah. Resource. And we put those images up. Where just so that? I just kind of wanted that feeling of osmosis that this You know this is the story. This is the look and again. A lot of production design was in this. Area Cost You All different kinds of things but That was fun. Also out there to the new talk about trust. This conversation, but from from. When you come in that. Of were already. Clear Vision is. Comedy thing to see now. I give it my all on your job in every way. Chris to know immediately. WHO Cares and is GONNA put in all that effort. Is just is an immediate bridge between us in that process From our end psychologically as well as Physically annoying. I'm just swing. Echo this same thing in what I do know from talking to other crew members is that they received it the same way on Chris Cuomo's czar a camera operator. I just remember Which episode Chris's like? My Brother you know I just. I I. Love Guy, play I. Remember Him saying you know. You know she's just she the way she prepares think quite a war preparation and when you're coming into something that doesn't already exist visually But exists in tax in drawings, and then to know when you're reading pilot that. We're not doing. Comic Book. Is is is saying but. I something just don't know quite what it looks like. You know to have that. Look Book that gives us all something to. be working towards. That gives us a collecting goal that we all understand to be the same. Sometimes you come into a project. Even Our our show last story morning Nikki would have. Their onset again is is it goes in the same spirit of the So Lot of times you can go onto something in eight to collect figure on the same page and you're not. Know all of you have experienced before. You even think you communicate something in there in the moment and you go. Oh. That's what they thought I'm meets. Yet I wasn't. It's been we're doing selahs solution based thinking to. Right, that wrong! In is not necessarily wrong or humid. You know what we things differently, but the look book allows for less. Moment misinterpretation to happen amazing. Kind of. Russia questions about also like a previous previous pre-bus. Using previous for some of the more outlandish scenes, so also from an actress reaction, being cat, Elgin's wrong by. Slogans or being run into space. What kind of of a previous? And I'm assuming everything. Was Story boarded in slotted out? Everything was storing morbid or plotted out. You know that CIBELLI has conversations with Nikki. Are some coordinator prior to? And then they kinda go off in. A coordinate a sequence cycle ds on wheels if you will and those three days I think are very hopeful for You know not to speak for Nikki, but sometimes they are. Way More than what needs to be or they need to be? Redirected in, and it helps us not. Waste time onset time is money so those those three Biz definitely. Create. Greater chances of success when we're on set and you have. Amazing Sandoval like I have she's. In Iowa just say her stunt T. Need to say. They're able to made those changes before in on that need to be made that. The are in the spirit of the visual story that Niki! In Saf. WanNa tell. and. For me, it also Me when I usually get a pre-bus once the director has approved it and so been, it'll come to me at that point. I can call you say yes, so SEDIBA will be during his part or sure and you. How about? Me Doing this and yes I cannot wait do this fart so. It's it's several. The pre-bus allows for. US to have very clear conversations. And I'll just add that for action. That was exactly how he used, and then also for sequences. That were world building eight. Steph had a big one with. Jeremy's character landing on Europa. I did a previous for The cattle battle in the pilot, and for these sequences that were really tricky to figure out the visual sachse of at allowed us to communicate because the effects take so long to build on it. Allow them to stir building shots. As soon as the pre-bus was approved and then it was great to have in the editing room. We could cut in those shots. Into the K. that might not show up for three months or six months Anything else. You want to add to that stuff. I'm remembering places where. It's just another conversation trusting conversation, because actually the first communication I received was was kind of opening premise of the euro sequence. and then I worked and then I. Started began work on pulling away from young looking glass to see the squid and I remember that. That CECE, interesting the the beginning about sequences. ourselves in our extras are are sort of destroyed. Tom? And I remember that I'm Eric, her credible and place for Karen HBO and what we're investing in our via fax sequences comes into play, but Eric had. A pullout from above like this right and I had visualized to pull out this way from our character space in. We had just met in within three minutes. Into, our planning. With the effects, so that he could get the proper previous going to plan as enormous sequence in real time and I think that. The this is sort of new world in where we're, we're RV designers and these massive teams The it's a hand. It's a it's a hand. Hole is your vision and their technology, and their understanding of the story and again it's another set of relationships and end another set of trust building that was but I always feel as I always fell. Again Eric in a team it was. It was what can we do? It was how there was never a no. AMAS as Karen there was only how and what's the best way in? What's the best idea? Choir by the way. Clowns in Paris, we also this weird. Williams. Yeah So an easy, this is for Asia you think you might have answered it already. Maybe Nicole, but maybe not what issues you most nervous about and what? Did Not. I can say that. As. A justice Sassari Zozo. One feel for the minority of the. And? Adding was scenes has was a manager NB Will. Will they say two hours? This eight hours is just a matter when we get it, you know and the sensitivity that you. A degree. Also master. Putting nooses on people and so is is. It's A. Terrible thing to be part of you know creating. So the. To answer the question as It was a bar scene where John and Danielle justice lorries and June his futurist. Chris Moss doing room. The Camera Regina hiding to choose. Mine. And Getting Christian through the. Timing of all that was needed Maria This up. As US just the. Dealers in so many malls in the meantime is. Again is this. Or is this all? Anything like that was a little bit. Shares. You know, but he didn't learn. I learned. A bit you. A sense of light. Soar! By This and Time Wise. Think that was the main takeaways. There's alive guessing. Your. Let's. I guess I kind of would have to Kind of piggyback on Casey's said for me was at. Episode seats. Just I was not in his still hits me now. Expecting to be emotional win that episode Iran in the things that are still experience having my care Gavin to experience what her grandfather was experiencing, and then on a deeper level. knowing that you know I haven't sisters that experience that. Very emotional because when I think about all of those days that we spent together, it didn't just only hit me as A. Black woman emotionally it hit. Everyone every single one of our crewmembers. I remember Every time we would have to. Do have the new Serrano can get so emotional for me and it got emotional for. Yeah It was very emotional for Britain I for him to have to put that on me brought him to tears and. We just had a moment afterwards because I had to let him know that it. Wasn't anything personal but it was just these emotions that were coming up. He broke down. He said I'm having to say emotions in. They're not stopped and looked at the entire crew and everyone was just like. Bearing his emotional way a lot of. The guilt, who's coming for people that they didn't should not have to. Have had passed down to them in a lot of pain was coming from us. Not have to have that has downs us in, but yeah he we are in With all of that happening, it was It was a beautiful moment at the same time view. That we were able to To do this and be sensitive to the fact that yeah. We're GONNA have to like nineteen takes of this. Possibly Casey was pointing out. Be, two hours in this case, or it can be eight hours in this space and. When you do the first sake you go. Oh, my God am I gonna be able to get through this and Luckily we did in luckily those of moments in that episode. They got we they were they weren't. Eight hour. Movie Say ended up being a couple of hours, but that was because every single person on net set on. Respected. This story that we were Chit. We were telling and understood that we all. Have a part of the fabric of America and We're getting the special opportunity to Hold a mirror up to it and we don't want to break that mirror. We we we, we're GONNA. Hold it up with delicate hands and strong shoulders, and and and make sure we. Get to the finish line, so I was not expecting that emotion in you know in this is still air. It's Kinda hard to. From the head. So anybody. Last question, anybody else wants to take talk about a senior nervous about. What did you learn from that? To say I'm nervous every day you know that like and I learned so much but You know my father's a neurosurgeon and he wants mentioned. He was nervous before every surgery and that if ajay comes, he's not nervous than he knows he's done doing the work. And that's always stayed. Me is not comfortable to be nervous. But. You're just you're there. With so much trust on you. There is also blue burden and. and. You know the pressure to yourself to deliver. Successfully or end to everybody who's trusting you to do that? it's a huge load to carry. End especially with this story with the. Content that we're taking on and also the legacy. Watchmen so I think. A lot of US process that throughout. There wasn't a day. We weren't nervous and and I learned. You know little things to big things. you know I? Make mistakes and we'll ever do that. Mistake again but. Yeah! It's important to actually be nervous. I just say they'll make to that point which I think this is very important. Just being on his Seattle with a women in Ama- hoping, there are a lot of women out there tuning in. We're the point that Niki made about making a mistake We all make as directors in I think there's this enormous pressure that we put on ourselves. Is Women Because win? In the past. In in in like Mickey in staff or you know, blazing trails or not doing the blaze trails got where the. Other directors have left off of that. When we make a mistake, you know we go into director jail like quickly where our male counterparts me huge mistakes, the costs a lot of money, and they still continue to. Get the next job where you know Same Way and I just wanted to point out that. Or listening that. All directors are what your gender is. Make mistakes. It's part of the nature of directing and the greatest beings. She witnessed as an audience member that director, sometimes it's a results, and we're mistake. You know and and so I just wanted to just. Check snapshot of that except the We We get so caught up in or allow ourselves to be created. We Well Char crease because we're. Here, to make a mistake in. Authors. While that's be better. Ending I'm sorry now. Comments so I'm just GonNa read here from June. A one is from chance. Just said I just wanted to Gina that the works year in what she walked through honored her ancestors. and. We appreciate her offering that moment to honor them onerous. And another one from Sandra. is please convey microphone to each and every one of the panelists. This has been an inspirational honor to witness. Not really more than you so much for your science. For your. Late in your talent, and for creating media Miss, world despite. The hideous nece union hideous can coexist strangely together and I think. We all have to hold onto that onto it.
