Why Do We Dream?

"Bramble hi. I'm Emma Chamberlain and this is stupid. Genius the podcast where I'm stupid and I'm also a genius today. We're GONNA be talking about. Why do we dream do we? Actually I think animals dreamed to anyways but before we get into it. Let's talk a little bit about dreaming so I go through phases with dreaming. Sometimes I'm dreaming like every day other times. I'm not dreaming at all. I'll go months without dreaming and then I'll go weeks where I can't sleep without having a dream recently recently been taking a fuck tunnel naps just because I've been like really I don't know I think I'm hormonal so I've been getting really sad sometimes and then when I'm sad I take a nap and then when I wake up I'm like bitch. I don't care anymore. I'm good now so yeah so that's what I'm doing. <hes> I've been doing a lot of naps and every time I've napped recently. I've I've been I've had a completely like life altering dream whether it's a nightmare or just like a crazy dream that is so vivid that when I wake up I'm like shook to my core. I like wake up and I'm like get changed person <hes> because of these dreams that I've been having like okay one of them was that I in my dream I went to an event and add this event. Timothy Shallow may was there. This is not artichoke like I'm not making up the stream and we were placed at the same table and so I was like talking to him and we became friends like instantly and we were like best friends and I was like this is amazing because in real life I'd love to to be best friends with Timothy Xiaomei. I mean who the fuck wooding okay and so yeah anyway I woke up and I was pretty sad. Because I was like holy. Shit I just developed a whole ass friendship with Timothy Xiaomei and my dream and I woke up. She wasn't even real like he doesn't even know why I am like I like I can't I it just slipped through my little fingers. I will get very upset and my a friend was actually at my house when I had this nap and I woke up and I was like yeah I'm sorry but like I'm really upset like I and she was like why and I was like like you don't even know the half of it like I just like I'm heartbroken. We talked about it and I got through it but anyway so so those are the kinds of dreams I've been having that one was the worst but we'll talk more about dreams of the end of the episode because I've had some craziest dreams that have predicted my future and like I won't get into that yet because I'm we'll never get to the actual. I don't know like point of the fucking episode so before we guess why as humans dream of getting to the word of the day so stupid genius word today is Remm sleep into remm state of sleep Ram stands for Vapid eye movement and this is the period of deep sleep a new trim. It's also name of Bantu wrote. A song called tonight swimming because it deserves a quiet night. If you did not know Google it okay. Why am I so I am like the master at entering rem sleep like I'm not even kidding like I literally I lay down and I close my eyes and I'm immediately in rem sleep like it's it's unbelievable and I get into it so quick? I sleep so deep like I'm not kidding. I sleep through alarms. I sleep through like explosions. I sleep through bombs. I sleep through fires. I sleep sleep through like murderer like I literally nothing can wake me up and it's pretty amazing not to mention if you can like have if you can enter rem sleep during a short nap you are that bitch in like. I'm that bitch because I I can do that like I literally I literally lay down and I shut my eyes. I'm dreaming immediately. It's insane and not always but like a lot of the Times it's like that I love that about me so I don't know I mean maybe it's just because I'm sleep deprived so it's really easy for me to like start sleeping deeply because I'm like just I'm craving it at all time so like the second is my body's like between the to get to work. This isn't going to happen for very long in it. Probably you won't ever happen again so like my body's kind of on fighter flight mode when I close my eyes and it's time to just sleep as hard as they can before it's time for me to push it to its limits once again but anyway I would love to know more about rhames Lebron Y._M.. So good at it but that's not what we're talking about today. We're talking about why we dream as humans also. I'm really tired right now for no reason because I got a good night's sleep and I was like leaving the fuck up you know but I'm still really tired so I'm talking a little bit slower slower than normal kind of feel like I'm a little bit. I feel like I woke up drunk this morning and I am not I am not even remotely drunk. I adapt had no alcohol so like why do I feel like but I think like why it's not fair like there are people at clubs last night. I woke up this morning more alert and awake than I did and I didn't even fucking do anything I literally went to like one a. m. and just didn't do shit and I'm like and I feel like I'm hung over so wack. It's just like the universe it's not fair like maybe maybe it should start fucking raging on Saturday nights so that maybe that maybe I'll wake up more alert because I'm fairly what I'm doing. Now isn't working anyway. Let's get into our guesses as to why humans dream. I'm really I've I've a lot out of different approaches to this solicitous Garrett into guess number one special thanks to honey for sponsoring today's episode of stupid genius. Listen up okay.

Thank you honey. I being the best you guys are drop dead gorgeous. Okay okay. I have to this because okay. This is going to get mixed reviews. My Guess Number One's GonNa get mixed reviews because this is definitely not going to be the right answer but I wanna talk about it anyway. 'cause I like the idea of it but it's definitely not going to be right but then again it's not proven right or wrong so this actually could be right but we just don't know yet as humans so my guess number one is that dreams are a higher power our whether that's like a god or spirit or something we can't comprehend. I don't really know 'CAUSE I. You know I'm not really religious so I am spiritual to my own little ways. Um and I definitely believe in in things but I'm not religious. I don't have a religion that I you know like follow but I do believe in in this shit like in the spiritual shake. You know so like what if it's a higher power speaking to you okay it's like in the only way that it can speak to you is through your dreams because think about it like okay when you're dreaming. It's very subconscious in an unexplained and like the shit that happens in your dreams. How is your brain coming up with that on its own? I think there needs to be another source coming in here in switching switching things around to make you think a little bit more like okay for me for example right you know the universe was trying to say like be patient. You intimidate shallow may will be best friends soon in this is what it's going to be like. It's going to be great but you just need to be patient and you need to D._M.. Him High For the fiftieth time like I I am not cat calling Timothy Xiaomei. I just want to be his friend. That's it like nothing creepy here like literally. I don't even want to like you know when you just see them and you're like okay sorry. Why am I talking about Halloween? This has nothing to do with anything but I do love him a little bit but like just like I just want to be as best he like. I want to be his dog like I want him to literally put a leash igniting not even know Kinky or weird way and just fucking walk me right. I want to be literally his bitch. I don't care like I just like. Oh my God. I'm no regret this. I'm so going to regret this if he ever it somehow he won't but if he ever hears this he won't get. I'm Kidding Hill that I'm serious and he's GonNa be fucking terrified me timmy listen. I'm fucking kidding for one and for two like ever since you were my dream like I've like I felt like I'm your best friend it just as weird for me. It's weird for me because I feel like I know you now. We became best friends of my dream. The thing is here's the question. This is something that makes me that there's a higher power kind of like doing all some some in my dreams right because in my dream like the team of the shallow May that was in my dream how to full personality -ality right like you know saying things that were whatever like had a fully developed personality. How would my brain come up with that shit on its own like that's what I'm wondering like? I feel like you know let's it's just us. I don't let us use some sort of metaphorical term like let's just use it as a broad term as like a higher power like okay God or whatever was like was like we're just gonNA take a clone of Damian put in her dream. I love giving people nicknames. It makes me fucking timmy anyway luxury. I've been talking about that for too. Long now. I dislike seem like a fucking creep for one and my guess number one long story short is that higher powers. Try to speak to you through your dreams yes or no. I see y'all say no because you guys are haters but I believe in like I'll give fifty years in like some sort of like really futuristic scientists will be like that will end up being the right answer okay well. Let's get a little bit more scientific here. Let's see what we can do. <unk> gas number two. Let's get a little bit more biology with it. Okay Jess number two so the only time that you're dreaming is when you're sleeping right and when you're sleeping you're kind of out for the count okay. You're not doing anything. You're being a lazy visas shit. You're not doing anything you're sleeping. You're just laying there being a fucking lump. You're not getting shit. You're not getting anything anything done. You're being a loser and you are wasting time. You are not doing anything with your life and you are wasting so much precious time and you're being a fucking loser. You are just you're. We're just missing out. I'm totally kidding. Sleeping is like literally the best thing that exists but when you're sleeping you're not doing shit. That's what I'm trying to say here and you know your brain is a very active organ in your body right like your brain is like always always moving always always doing more yeah just like your brain is always like it's always awake. Okay so even when you're sleeping and your body is resting. Your mind is still awake because if it is in then you die so what I'm thinking. Is You know when your body's leaving when you're full body sleeping. Your brain is kind of like okay. I don't really have anything to do right now because like you know the body that I'm connected to is just chilling like I don't really have anything to do so like I'm going to start. I'M GONNA put <hes> some place. I'M GONNA put on a play. I'm going to start creating very vivid scenarios. The ages starts having fun and playing around in it creates these dreams right litter like crazy and weird like for for me for example like one time I had a dream that I'm gonNA move away from the Timothy Shallow Dream so that although I love talking about it for some reason like I realized through this episode that I'm really really love talking about that dream and that's something that like they need to talk about with my therapists like what does that mean for me like why am I so obsessed with that dream and why have I talked about it for half of this episode like do I need help and yeah. I like that healthy anyway so I'll get back to you about that next week but another dream dream that I actually a recurring dream is me shitting myself in a Walmart and then having to change my pants like whatever like change my pants like in the Walmart before I get back into my car and the thing that's like the the part of it. That's like scarier makes makes me anxious or makes it almost the nightmares that that like. I'm trying not to get caught by the employees like 'cause I'm literally like nude in public trying to change my pants anyway so what I'm saying is let's refer to that dream for this for this next for the next ex- gas like you know. My brain is just bored right so it's like let's like let's just like kind of like almost put on a movie. It's like putting it's like it's like it's like making a movie in its <unk> self to entertain itself to entertain itself right so like yeah like basically your brain is bored in has nothing better to do so just starts making these vivid mind movies <music> to entertain itself and also just have a little fun. You know what I mean like just like because it has nothing better to do. You feel me. It's not that deep. It's not like it doesn't need to be deep. It's just because your brain is board. Yes yes sir no. How's that guests? No fucking cut my head off then while I'm out it ta God go take a fucking nap while then just stop this episode now. I'm totally getting okay all right whatever yellow let's get into guests number three. This is my most scientific guests. I really have no idea though this might be like the first episode and a while where I don't. I'm not even close to anything like I get everything wrong so let's see what happens. Thank you hellofresh for sponsoring today's episode of stupid genius. If you don't know what hellofresh as it's America's number one meal kit where you can get seasonal recipes A._p.'s that are pre measured in very fresh in very good delivered right to your door. All you have to do is cook it and enjoy it and eat it and share with your friends or don't up to you. That's your decision. hellofresh is great because it I mean it makes sure that you're not wasting any you know groceries or whatever so you know when you go shopping at the store you never know how much to get hellofresh portions everything out so that you're not wasting anything okay. There's something for everyone there's family recipes Calorie smarr recipes vegetarian recipes and other fun menu series like the Hall of fame in Craft Burgers that you can try out. They have literally something for everybody personally. I'm vegetarian so I'm a huge fan of the vegetarian recipes one of my favorites right now. Is there Zucchini tomato flat breads. I love those I mean they're just they're fun and they're easy and I've even tested them on my friends and all my friends approve as well so that's a great sign because they're picky he and they wanna hate everything that I do and that I make for them because they want to bully me because it's fun for them so if they like it then that means that it's good if you're not a good cook.

That's that's a really great deal to me. Okay I love of it guys. Check out hellofresh tryout zucchini tomato flat bread have a good day. Thank you hellofresh all right guys guess number three. Let's see what happens okay so guess number three when you're sleeping this kind of goes off of the for the second guess. This is kind of similar but not quite like when you're sleeping your brain. Is You know it's doing a lot less than it. Normally is right or maybe do you know what it might not be doing a lot less but it might just be. It's working equally as hard but in other areas you know like Oh bitch okay hold on. I decided I something totally dawned on me. I'm going a different route so continuing with that when you're sleeping. Maybe maybe one area of your brain shuts off in another one turns on and or for your brain is using a different area of the brain when you're sleeping that area of the brain being you're sleeping part. I don't like that. I don't think that's right fuck. Maybe maybe the way that the brain works when you're sleeping is just different. You know what I mean because it's not it's not it's not like helping you to pick up your phone out of your pocket right. It's not it's it's like your brain is in doing the day to day shape when you're sleeping. It's just chilling. They're doing other stuff and that is dreaming because when you're sleeping when you're not you're the party your brain that is used for stuff that you do when you're awake such as like walking running you know all that automotive stuff because that the area of your brain isn't being used when you're sleeping. Another area of your brain is being used in that area is where dreams come from that. I'm having a fucking tough time okay but in my onto something you should I keep flushing out going the wrong direction. Oh Shit okay wait. That was my producer. She's helping me make better podcast episodes making sure that like this shit. This shit hits her so let's think here okay the reason why your brain okay so guess number three point five. Where re-routing 'cause I really WANNA try? I you know I really WanNa try so maybe it's your brain practicing scenarios for real life so that you're always on your toes okay because like for example like for the dream that I had about be about shitting and Walmart you know what I have charted many times before and I will probably start again and you know the dream I had helped me learn more more about charting and that was my brain being like I know you do this. So I WANNA help you get more experienced than the shorting field without you even having to live that shit no pun intended AH funny but yeah like it's like it's like your brain kind of practice running scenarios so that you can get familiar with things without actually having to live them. I'M GONNA fucking. Cut it off there because I'm just getting mad at this point so oh guess number three point five yes or no how is that that's right. Okay we before I comment on this. I want to hear the official answer. Let's hear the official answer in answer to why do we dream animal studies in advances in brain imaging let us to a complex understanding that suggests dreaming court play a role in memory learning and emotions rats for example have been shown to he plays they're waking experiences in dreams apparently helping them to solve complex tasks such as navigating mazes. I'm professor fuel of war and that was the stupid genius answer of the day that is so interesting because like that's crazy to me because like it's crazy that the human brain like I was thinking about things so like black and white when it comes to science like their cells and there is skin and there is in you have a muscles and you have nerves and I don't really think about the fact that like you know the human body also like it factors in like emotional all elements and they're in your you know your body can function sometimes strictly to help you emotionally. Do you know what I'm saying. That's like crazy to me because it's not like like your body. Also it's not just is doing the bare minimum. It's like it also is helping you emotionally. You know anyway so I wonder you know there's a lot now. I'm like wondering too. I'm like do you dream more when you're going through it like because you need. You'd like more help you know speaking of that so actually well. We'll now segue out of this and we'll talk about me yes but as I'm allowed me I love that who oh okay so now. I'm so excited so basically I've had a few dreams in my life that have changed my life which has been like insane in one of them being really random so let me tell you the story so I was on vacation. It was the summer before fifth grade. I believe I was I was on summer vacation in I was in Maine. That's where I. Vacation often during the summer and I woke up one morning and I had had a crazy dream the night before and the dream was that I went to a middle school I went to the Middle School. The my cousins went to because my cousins live near me. Nancy dream that I went to their middle school is called central Middle School and you know there's really no reason for me to have a dream about me going to this middle the school like it was just so random right and I wasn't planning on going to that middle school. I was planning on going to a middle school that was like closer to my elementary school. If that makes sense like going to the one that I was in line to go to I would have to switch districts and stuff like that to go to this other middle school but I had a dream about it and for some reason like the dream really really hit me like I don't know why but I was like I woke up in my brain immediately. It was like you need to you need to transfer middle schools next year and you need to go to this middle school and it was an i. I did not know what it meant. I didn't know why I had the dream. I didn't know like why I woke up. Literally programmed programmed like you cannot you have to transfer middle schools and you have to go to the middle school next year because I was going to go to elementary school for one more year because like whatever because that's how like the town I lived in. It's it was kind of a complex situation. I won't get into the details but like I was supposed to have one more year in elementary school and then because the middle school I was going to start at was sixth grade through eighth whereas central middle school the one that I had the dream about was fifth through eighth and so weirdly enough I had this dream and <hes> I called my mom and I was like can you can we transfer me to central middle school. She was like yeah and I was like okay and I went there for four years and I am so convinced that my life would have been so I mean I mean I know it would have been my life would have been so so different if I would not have transferred middle schools like you know the hobbies I ended up finding the friends. I ended up meeting the high school I ended up going to because of the fact that I went to that middle school all of those things you know the experiences I had why did my voice is quivering crying. Will we getting but the experiences I had at that. Middle School shaped me so much not to mention like everything about it like I'm so glad I mean that middle school middle school was absolutely associated associated for me but I don't care because like I swear to God and I don't know why but I am fully convinced I wouldn't have ever started youtube if I wouldn't have went to that middle school because I think that the the level of like like this shit I had to go through because I went to that middle school because even the high school I went to afterwards. It was so tough like socially and also like whatever I don't know if it would have been that bad at the other middle would've went to and the other is cool so like I'm so grateful that I ended up having that dream for whatever reason if I would have had that dream I would not have gone to that middle school and I would not have been intern gone to the high school I went to and who knows what I would have been like who knows who who my friends would have been. Who knows what you know my passion when everything would have been so different so listen to your dreams people serious like I don't know why it happened like that and I've had other dreams about things that have ended up like you? You know I can't I can't think of any right now but I've definitely had a few weird ass dreams where I've woken up like completely like almost like it had spoken to me. Oh my God. I'M GONNA literally I'm going to get at least there will be at least SD ten calls L._A._p._d.. Being like go to her house. She is disturbed. What is she talking about? She's like some sort of like she needs help. She needs therapy. Whatever and yes I do but <hes> but no I mean? I don't know I truly believe that like my dreams of enemy at times and like the one about the like. I don't know what it means yet. I'M GONNA figure it out later. I don't know what it means yeah. I'm I'm Timothy Chaumet. You're listening to this. I literally am not cat calling you. I'm not being like Oh my God like I want a day you Timothy I don't I I mean we don't but what I'm saying is like. I'm just saying that like I just like I weirdly drawn you as a human being. I feel like we're very similar. Actually we get along really well. Whatever I just I'm holding for a long time? Listen listen. I was actually like this. Let me give you another example of this is to be like this in highschool whether it'd be like people that I had no idea who they were. I knew nothing about them. I didn't want to date them like let's say if it was a guy like I didn't want to date them. It wasn't like I had a crush on them or or anything like that or there's just something about their energy that I was obsessed with like I've always been like that. Where like it's rare but like very rare like this may be having SMI once every five years where I'll find somebody that I don't even really know that well and I just am so drawn to them for no reason and there's been a lot of people in my life like friends that I have currently where like I wasn't like that with them? I didn't like I wasn't like weirdly infatuated by their energy like I didn't really care or like or like you know really thought that they were cool but it wasn't like I was obsessing over the fact that like they had an energy that like I was really obsessed with like or you know sometimes people that are now become friends with like I found out that I'm obsessed with their energy after becoming friends with them you know what I mean and vice versa whatever whatever but there's certain people Timothy Timothy Shallow may being one of them. I have no idea who he is. I know nothing about him but for some reason like from seeing like him in a few movies and then watching an interview because it showed up my explore page now obsessed with him because I feel like we would be best friends and there's actually a random guy. Oh my God I hope he's not. You're listening to this in like Sophomore Year of high school. He didn't even go to my school but I literally didn't know him and I didn't want to date him or anything. I didn't even care but I thought he was so fucking cool. I wanted to be friends with him so bad and they never became friends with him but but like I don't know like this is like a reoccurring theme for me so I'm just trying to say that it's like this. Is something that I like it. It's like a disease it comes over me and I just like get obsessed with people for no reason it when which is weird to carry it for me because most of the time I like don't I just like to be by myself so like when I'm really like whatever but I'm anyway so like how does that. Make me look like now that I just said all that like how how is that. How did that land for you? I'm wondering like did that. Just make me sound like a sociopath. Actually I think it'd be the opposite of sociopathic because it would make I like like I actually like you. Enjoy people enjoy certain energies that can feel that which would make me not a sociopath but yeah like. I don't know if that made me sound creepy. Okay Kevin is right. Kevin cut out a little bit of Timmy Shit all right like because it makes me sound creepy because I've been obsessing about this whole episode and I and I don't want it to come off wrong. That's the thing like I don't care what actually fucking I don't care because if he is listening to this and he's like I'm not even worried about him. Losing that's embarrassing. I'm more listening. I'm embarrassed about using this whoever you are and being like as she is weird like why is she like right like why is she bringing in at so much and like I would be thinking is aiming if I was you can. You don't actually have to cut out the timmy stuff like whatever I don't know. I'm completed honestly this. I am not kidding. I'm like in self sabotage mode recently like I just don't give a fuck anymore. I'm literally like I don't care like bucket like I just don't care at this point. It's like like why is ok but for me like what I don't get like why is shorting more taboo for or no no why is charting less less taboo for me than talking about an actor that like ninety percent of women would are like obsessed with you know what I mean like why is like so like for me. I'm more comfortable talking about me shitting myself in Walmart. Whether it's a dream or not then talking about you know a heartthrob that everybody's obsessed with. I'm not special for this one in like I want to be totally getting getting okay. That's it for today's episode y'All. I hope you had fun. I hope that you have some fun dreams. You know what I hope for you. Close Your Eyes Real quick. I'm GONNA close <music>. I'm going to manifest that tonight. You ever dream that you and your crush whether it's celebrity whether it's you know Jeremy or Natasha that sits next to you in science class US whether it's your boss whatever type of Weird Shit you have going on in your brain like that. Take that crush okay. I'm manifesting for you that you have a dream that you in that crush. Go go to Disneyland in you. Get The cotton candy and you go on the rides and he buys you or she sorry.

I hate holding thing is not like I would know much about that but still but like any time anybody's ever held my hand. I've been like bitch.

What kind of motivation to you have right now on your since got any right now. So I'm listening. Yeah you do your highly motivated. If you if you weren't motivated you wouldn't be here today. Something motivated you to get and listen to this podcast today right. I don't know why you're here you've been for so long smits. Fourteen years sounds been forever. Maybe just kinda searched on apple or wherever wherever where in any case something was motivating you and you arrived here and you may have arrived here. Let me learn something. Let me see. Let me see if this guy can motivate. Let me see what he's made of. Maybe he's he'll teach me something you might think. Frankly I'm an ass that's okay. It's not for everybody but you also might think I'm I'm the biblical version and you're like me. I don't know but any case you're motivated to be here and that's cool but have you ever wondered why you have that motivation. Have you ever wondered why this why are? Sometimes you motivated and sometimes you not why. If have you ever been on a diet? I can talk to two thirds of the country just by saying that. Yeah have you ever wondered? Why occasionally boom you just Neil? That Diet you're motivated to stick it like for class reunions. Things like that right and other times. You don't what's going on well. The science of motivation has some of your answers. And I'm really happy to see this because I in recent years people have really begun to look into it because we haven't had a whole lot of answers we kinda knew what motivation was all about as much as we study and everything. But the truth is it's really multilayered. It's got a lot of different levels to it. Everything affects everything. And this is the most frustrating part about when people wanNA find this This motivation forward with it. Takes Skill set it takes disciplines? It takes all kinds of things that it takes having a good day. The weather the humidity has to be right high tide and moon and everything and all that stuff comes in your motivation. I'M SERIOUS. This is life right but essentially in a nutshell. If we don't go into all that stuff and we will that maybe this week we'll do that. But in a nutshell. They're really four kinds of motivation. That you're dealing with now. I WANNA ask you. What kind do you have so as go through this with you is pay attention? Have you felt the senior life? Are you feeling it right now? And I'll give you the big reveal the big fun thing right at the end. I'm going to do it now because I wouldn't be extracts extrinsic motivation. That's hard to say you try to say. Okay extrinsic motivation. What is that? What comes from outside of you essentially means this. It means that you are doing something because you are compelled to do it usually by somebody else. How many times you've been motivated do that now? By the way good leaders good for good folks people like monkey. They're like me out so I'm a good leader but I am getting people to do stuff. I'm really good at that. Extrinsic motivation. What are you doing right now? That somebody else has motivated you to do. And as a sidebar. I happy about it is a film what you want. Would you like not to be doing that and yet somehow you keep falling prey to that motivation happens. Everybody happens all the time. It's a really good thing and certainly at some points. It can be bad thing next one intrinsic motivation. You hear about this one a lot It's done for internal and personal reasons. I think personally. This is the most powerful this is what could be called. You're Y and a lot of searching for this intrinsic motivation inside motivation thing that will drive your my purpose my passion things like that but that extrinsic motivation sometimes gets in the way. Doesn't it Kinda three off some people out there? We'll try to motivate you and they had their own reasons for it. That might throw you off. Track interjected motivation. The difference is that if something is not done if you'll guilty oh you've never done that. Have you. Jury have raise your hand if you have a not up and down. That's okay if you drive. Don't spill your coffee now or just identified motivation. The fourth one. It's when you know something needs to be done but you've decided not to do it yet. Oh my goodness I have a lot of that going on right now in my life because I have so much I that I really know I should be doing and bits out really. K- yeah I see. I've got that you do to extra intrinsic interjected and identified motivation these four basics you can align that with just about anything else but the question still stands. What kind do you have? Have you decided yet? Give write your answer right now and we're check with a studio audience and see that's all. Oh my hang on a few late. Push the button. Tell me which one you have you have and most people have. All of all types of motivation can be in play at any time they can be individual they can overlap and they do all the time and it can change day by day hour by hour depending on what you do where you go who you talk. When you answer the phone what email you get status however when you discover that intrinsic motivation when you discover why you will find the momentum you are looking for and the rest of it. It's still going to be there but now you're going to be kind of a little bit of a you're gonNA have a little force field out there force field which means that when all this other stuff comes your way. It's going to be there. You'RE GONNA process it but you know why you're doing what you're doing. I know it's infamous wide. We'll talk about how to get there and there are really deep levels of this of how you can make this thing happen and I fully understand understand that it is It's difficult to break this through. Sometimes that's okay. Can I leave you with one? I sing before I go. You know knowing why you're doing something will motivate you but my world pay attention if you want to earn our. That's okay no why you're not doing something changes your life this. My opinion seems to work for a lot of people day. I'll see you tomorrow right here on the daily boost.

Somnology (SLEEP) Part 1 with W. Chris Winter

"Oh, hey, it's your little step brother who tries to trade you there? Calcified banana flavor now and laters for your mini reese's peanut butter cups in your like little dude, step all the way off. That's not how life works alley board back for another episode of allergies. So this is coming out in October. So let's get deep into something that happens usually in the dead of night. If you're lucky sleep, you knew it every day or night probably in it should be an exercise in comfort and restoration and flirting with deaths hotter friendlier twin. But just looking at the word sleep probably made your bowels drop with dread because you know, you're screwing it up a little bit. We kind of all are. So in the next to episodes, that's right part to with your questions comes out next week. We are going to go head to head with the Sandman, but first, let's get ready for bed who little business first things. First happy. Happy birthday to my amazing mom. Nancy ward who so funny and so smart and inspiring and accepts me even though I swear like filth on this podcast, a, she also gave me the best care for insomnia. It has never failed me. We don't talk about it in part. One of the sleep episode surrogate have to wait until part you next week, but it is an actual lifesaver. I can't wait to tell you happy birthday. Mom me and my sisters in pop love you a bunch. So thank you also to the patrons at patriot dot com for donating as little as one, shiny American quarter and episode to help fund the show, and thank you to all who are sporting allergies wears from all geez, merch dot com. And thanks to the people who post on Instagram and tweet about it. You can tell if Brennan you can tell a fo, I don't care. You can scream into the night about it and rate and subscribe and review that all helps get the show in others, ears, and merry often you make my day with your nice words in the. Reviews. So like a suck your best. I pluck one every week to read from the bunch. And this week t paff says ten at attend would scream about sharks in my car. Again, they say, while I love so many different podcasts, none have the something for everybody. Enjoy ability of Allah, jeez, I recommend this podcast anybody and everybody as stated above ten and ten would look like a complete nutjob, scream crying in laughter about sharks in my car again. So thank you. Please continue t path to do that. And thanks to everyone who left reviews that I savored individually over a Cup of herbal tea this week. I just appreciate him so much. Okay. Some -nology very much thing. It's the study of how we sleep and I looked up the etymology of it just after I wrote that intro and holy smokes. You guys some nece is the Roman God of sleep. And yes, the brother of death. I had no idea when I wrote that if he wanted to go. So there you go also. Some knows probably a remake of the Greek myth of hypnosis who was the Greek God of sleep. Also the half brother of Thanatos death. So hypnosis lived in a dark grotto in the underworld. What a bachelor, but was kind of a helper of humans. He was a good dude. His dad was darkness in his mother was Knicks or night, and even Zeus was afraid of her. Zeus was like damn lady. You're kind of a bitch, but I respect that. And so some -nology is the study of the God that comes in darkness to incapacitate and recharge us. And it seems to vex us more and more. So yes, we have cars and antibiotics, but when it comes to sleep were kinda boning ourselves fam-. So in this two parter episode, I'm determined to help fix your sleep and by your I mean, are I a- Paul, my own friends physicians, I appalled my own Fitbit with my poor sleep habits. And as. Bolt. I sometimes forget which month it is and I have eaten more stickers on produce. Then you need to know about. So you're gonna learn the difference between deep sleep, light sleep, Remm sleep. What aspects of sleep hygiene are important, the root of insomnia, how much sleep you really need. If you should go somewhere to get wires tape to your head while a stranger watches you and how to help the molecular janitors that live in your skull. This guest has been called the sleep whisper and works with professional athletes and normies alike to perform better and to remedy their sleep issues. He has literally written the book on sleep. It's called the sleep solution while your sleep is broken and how to fix it. He's based in Virginia. He's the owner of the Charlottesville, neurology and sleep medicine clinic. So we schedule this interview months in advance for a time. He was going to be in southern California to give a talk. We met up at a hotel and I barrage him with so many questions that he was held. Physically captive, answering them for me for close to two hours. And I was like, yes, double episode. So get cozy zip up your onesies and get ready for part one with the gently southern voiced dulcimer wisdom of neurologist, and some knowledge est Dr William Chris winter. You are a neurologist, but you're also eight, some knowledge est. Correct, because he study sweet, correct. Why sleep for you? Because I read your book which is great. Yearbook is by the way. So funny. I was like, oh my God. This is keeping me up because it's so funny why? And you mentioned the book that you like sleeping. You're good sleeper. So what drew you to this field if you have no problems in it. So what drew me to the field as district a problem with it isn't it? Don't love it. Number one, number two, I I came into the field completely accidentally. I decided around third grade that I would become a doctor and I'm pretty certain that there was a phenomenon going on. My parents were both the first people in their families believed to go to college on both sides. So Dr winter says that he didn't grow up in a family of academics, but that his Appalachian Meemaw and Papa supported big dreams for little whippersnappers. We. And visit grandma and grandpa and the remote reaches of West Virginia. If you told them that you would be a doctor, they would give you a quarter and some candy. So think very, from a very young age, I realized if I tell Pap all that, I'm going to be a doctor. He gets really excited. He calls mammo in, I get some candy and some money, and this is awesome. So I think that that probably had a big role in shaping so went to be a doctor. It didn't really want to be asleep doctor neurologist, but I started doing research in sleep just to get beer money in biology, credit hours as a undergraduate. So quick question. How much does this pay according to one USA today article I read about one hundred and fifty bucks a day is the going rate for research studies, but there are accounts of folks making over three grand for a nine day sleep study. But based on the fact that the article was titled quote how to get paid to sleep. I'm guessing that the job competition might be stiff, grueling farting and unconscious. But stiff guy said here, they'll pay you to do some research and you can get some cool things for your med school resumes. So it was just completely accidental. But the field is fun. The people within it or inviting it was a new field. So anything you sort of dreamt up. Had never really been looked at before. At what point did you get to start doing research on humans and what was your end goal to do want people to sleep better and thus be happier, like what did you want to do as neurologist? Sure. So that was my undergraduate experience from there. I went to medical school down at Emory and was introduced Dom, Bligh wise and David ri- or were they? They run the the sleep center down there. Now, when I was an undergraduate, I was working sleep bubbas mainly pulmonary looked at breathing. These gentlemen were more neurology oriented. So that was my first taste of neurology. I've always thought that you know, the brain was really cool. Lots. It go to medical school during the day. And then at night I would run these studies, one of them was. And so this is when I was first started interacting with real human subjects. One was the idea of if you pull Neider and stay up all night, or if you have a night where your sleep is fragmented like being on call or something of that nature. So how is that? No, no, no. No. Oh, yeah, I'm sure it is. I've, I've heard all about. You've got a lot going on Maury about you. So so the question was, how is that affecting our brains blood flow in the morning? So we would bring my a lot of these where my friends, they were medical students who are looking for a little bit of money, and I would say you should come to the sleep study. So the sleep study consisted of three nights the first night you would sleep. Normally the second night, you would not sleep at all. The third night, we would fragment your sleep in the way we did that was we had these little c. three PO alarms that made this unbelievably grading sound. That you would have to right away. That is the worst. I'm so glad I looked this up. We had them bolted underneath the the subjects bed. And so my job was on the on. The fragment on the on the sleep deprivation night is had to make sure they were doing whatever they wanted to do. These couldn't sleep on the fragmented night. I had to watch them in every time they would fall asleep. I would give them five five minutes. And then we would start sounding the alarms. This is going to be late. So they would get little five minute chunks of sleep throughout the entire night. And the funny thing was all my friends would make these big arrangements for the sleep deprivation night, but for the fragmented night. So I get to sleep Ryan like, yes, you do. But as soon as you fall asleep, you'll sleep a little while and we're gonna wake you up, but you can go right back to sleep after that they would make arrangements for that. They were a mess after those studies. One guy actually walked woke up and walked out of the sleep center with all the wires hooked to him into was trying to get into his car that had no idea what he was doing. Another person actually got up and went to the bathroom hooked up with everything. They were absolutely hysterical. And what we found was it was much more dangerous from a blood flow perspective to have fragmented sleep than it was to act you to stay up. In fact, when you when you stayed up all night in never slept for the first few hours of the morning, your brain blood flow was really happening. It was really. So I think that's sort of the background. You pull neither for a test the next day. You feel kinda euphoric for a while and then you crash. So real quick as if being a walking skeleton covered in raw hamburger isn't chilling enough. Just please take a moment to remember that. The thought sponge nested in your skull is soaked in blood. So during some stages of sleep, the blood volume goes down, but in Remm it can be engorged with more blood than when you're awake. So yes, you're snoozing and your brain has a dream Boehner and less some factor. Screws it up like a creep in a lab coat with this. Three PL alarm clock, but that fragmented night. And when you think about that in relation to people who are on call or a new mother with the baby that's crying out throughout tonight, it's a real risk factor potentially for things like stroke. So just not a healthy situation to be in. And do you have kids a three? Yes. How did this affect you? Because it's not just new mothers. I imagined you gotta get like pop, got to get up to right. Does Papa was this pop? I was always always felt so. Not helpful and somewhat inadequate during the whole situation that I would always get up even a first child. My daughter was born was at third year medical student. I would get up and just sit with my wife while she nursed because I felt like, okay, well, you go take care of this creation. I put inside of you and I'll be getting some sleep over here. So I felt really guilty by that even though I would often kind of you not off as we were talking and the guilt really started from the birth of my daughter. At one point, I fell asleep during labor and my wife said, did you just fall asleep. This is what I said. I was so sleep deprived from being a medical student. I said something like, I just didn't know it was going to take this long. Good. This word that leave your mouth and you're trying to grab them as leave to shove back in your face. And so I think that part of the guilt stemmed from that comment. So and I imagine also is a med student. I feel like there's no one who is more sleep deprived. Then a medical student like you have these insane long shifts and hours, and then it's like, okay, you haven't slept in thirty six hours, fix this person, so they don't die, correct. So yes, we were very sleep deprived. It's not an accident that a lot of mistakes are making made because of sleep deprivation and hospitals. And one point I was at a computer entering medications for a patient, and I got a call at the on the phone right next to me, and I picked it up. And this woman said this. I said, this is Dr winner who's this? This is Phyllis in the cafeteria. Why are you sending his medications through the cafeteria pathway? So I'd somehow in my sleep deprived Hayes, gotten into the completely wrong system on the computer. And instead of sending dietary orders to the cafeteria was putting all their medications through there, which is fortunately didn't hurt anybody, but I had no idea what I was doing. Cohn Cohn with Seattle. Right, poppy seed cleanup in. That's right. It's good for you, sir. Great. Really. Sure. They sell really well. Actually, I think now tell me a little bit about what is sleep. I mean, that's like the golden question because it says seem crazy that for eight hours of the day, we just kind of semi die. It seems we're so vulnerable to predation. We're just clock out like, what? What is sleep? Exactly. Yeah, I don't think people really know. I mean, there's all kinds of theories in terms of sleep being something important for energy balance. There's a metabolic sort of pathway that sleeps very important for we get some insight into the answer that question. If we look at sleep deprivation models, we take something they used to put these little mice on these rotating platforms over water. And if they fell asleep, the platform would rotate and push him into the water, which I really didn't like. And so you found it after a very short period of time. There's a lot of brain dysregulation starts to happen, particularly with the brain, it's regulation of our cardiovascular system. Our body temperature gets really screwed. Yup. We have difficulty fighting infection and generally organisms die fairly quickly with sleep deprivation. So I don't know that we necessarily know exactly what it is, but it's a very important thing for sort of reestablishing balance within our body throughout organ systems. And every organism does it. They do it differently. Some fish that have to continue to always swindle sleep, one half their brain, and then the other at other times and really fascinating things like that. But it's this very preserved process that kind of allows us to sort of reset and go for a better day. But to answer that definitively I don't think anybody really can, which is shocking is something like you said, so basic that we don't really know why we do it. We don't know, is this true? I fact checked it. And yes, pretty much all legit. Scientific papers start with even know how and why we sleep is a fucking mystery for real, but we do know that there are different stages of sleep. So. What happens in the different sleep stages. I just got a fit bit track my sleep because I'm very. Yeah, it's like you made two hundred steps this week, but I so the different stages of sleep were kind of allusive to me. Can you go through the different stages of sleep really quick and when they happen to in nine or the day. So it's as you think about sleep and sort of in terms of three stages, there's lights, sleep, deep, sleep, and dream sleep. So a lot of people think dream sleep in deep deeper kind of the same thing. They're not so very distinct. So we spent about half of our night in light sleep, half in light sleep is normal. That just blew me away. Light sleep is like this shoe that you wear most days, like versatile, essential, not the fanciest, but you need it and that's sort of the sleep. That's what moves us through all the different stages. So we're awake and we fall into light sleep. And from there we might dream and then we'll go back to light sleep and then we might have deep sleep back to light sleep, maybe wake up and go to the bathroom. So light sleep is not only the the sort of the foundation of our sleep, but it's also the. Portal through it. We we moved to the different stages about ninety minutes after we fall asleep. If we're if we're on a schedule and relatively well rested, we'll have dream Remm sleep, Ceram sleep, rapid eye movements, sleep and dream sleep at the same thing. So generally and I'm fifty fall asleep. We'll have your I dream. It's very short dream, typically very fragile too. If you're an uncomfortable situation, a lot of anxiety in your life, you sleeping in a bad hotel. You may drop that for cycle quite a bit, and then every hour hour and a half. We'll have another cycle of dreaming usually last somewhere between twenty five to forty five minutes, and those get longer and longer than night goes on. So light sleep starts as a stage called n one as you're starting to drift off, and you might have like a quick funky green at kind of OSHA. Yea, I'm falling asleep. Nothing is real feeling and then your brain waves slow down. And then a little deeper light sleep is called n to when your breath and your heart rate, slow down almost half of your. Is spent an end to, but it's not terribly restorative. Now, what does this end one and twos? What are the ends? Their short for non Remm sleep. So all stages of sleep that aren't rim are called non rim, which is like if you had four kids and you just named the best most interesting, Jeremy, and then all the rest is like non Jeremy, one non Jeremy to that was none, Jeremy, three like sure. They all have their place in this family. Your life wouldn't be the same without them, you know, but they're not as interesting as Jeremy. So think of light sleep as your day-to-day shoe, nothing fancy, but it works now another kind of shoe in your sleep closet. But say the of the shoes is deep sleep now also called slow wave sleep or delta sleep or for being an asshole, and three, not Remm three. This stage of deep sleep happens more at the beginning of the night. And during this deep sleep stage, our bodies repair. There and the heal themselves. We release human growth hormone, which is dope for free Noche eighty prescription necessary and the more of this deep sleep. We get those first few hours in bed usually around twenty five percent of the night, the more Chipper and refreshed and not sleepy or groggy or crawling toward a triple Espresso. Feel in the first three hours of our night is predominantly when we have deep sleep. So if you sort of track somebody through a typical night, hop into bed should take you about ten fifty minutes to fall asleep. You go into sort of transitional or lights sleep into deep sleep, but nine minutes later, you'll have your first, it'll cycle of dreaming back to light sleep. Some more deep sleep, maybe a little bit less this time a bit longer cycle of dreaming. So as the night goes on, we're having bigger bigger cycles of dreaming smaller cycles of deep sleep. So if you cut the night in half in often ask this question to patients, if you're having difficulty with their sleep defeat like the first half your nights better. Second half, and depending on their answer, the first half is predominantly deep sleep. The second Remm sleep. So you can get a little bit of a sense of what might be going on with somebody sleep in in terms of the function of deep sleep is what makes us feel rested. So if somebody's nodding off listening to your podcast, Ouch unless of course your dearest scooter churning out the sleep with me podcast, who is a one man human flock of sheep to falling asleep at a stop light or in George or wherever you like to fall asleep, you can, you know, very quickly that person did not get enough deep sleep either because they didn't get enough sleep or there's something inhibiting their deep sleep. And then ribs leap has a lot more to do with focus concentration, mood, even pain perception. So it's a little bit more of a finesse sort of situation, which is probably why it's second in the night, your brain really needs to deep sleep to make the motor go to find the food to get through day the second. Tonight's a little bit more detail oriented. So if light sleep is like an everyday sneaker and deep sleep is. Comfortable. Ugh. Remm sleep is like the shimmering dress shoe, just full of dreams, increased breathing and heart rates more blood in your brain, and our eyes are just like darting around, like kittens under our eyelids. Now, Remm sleep was discovered by scientists only in the nineteen fifties. Pretty recently. He was just watching children's sleep. So that's a job just go to the office to watch baby stream and he's like, hey, look at that. Maybe there's like a rapid eye movement stage of sleep and they're like, well, boy, Howdy, hot. Dang, there is so in this state, our brain is as active as when were awake and Rhames sleep, they think is supposed to help with memory and concentration and also mood. Now, if you're like, what's up with REM the band, if that's confused you, you're not alone. Because up until about five minutes ago, I wasn't sure if it was called Remm or REM sleep. I had no idea, and I would just never say it out loud Michael Stipe just. Flips to the dictionary added periods between the letters and confused us all for decades. So the band is REM, sleep is ram. This would not have happened if REM had stuck to their original name, which was jars of piss. That's the true story. So the dress shoes takes care of memory and mood. And it happens for about twenty five percent of the night. Now, the cushy comfy, ugh, deep sleep or and three also twenty five percent of the night repairs your Bod and keeps you from feeling sleepy. So yes, that light sleep is the majority of the night if fifty percent, but like, what does it do? And then what is happening during light sleep. So light sleep is important. Again, like I said, it was sort of the foundation of sleep. There are a lot of processes going on. You know, it's only use the word filler, but it but is a lot of sort of just to the general rest of our body. Our bodies being inactive for your time and interesting about delights sleep is for a lot of individuals who struggle with their sleep, they will miss perceive light sleep as being wakefulness, and we all do that. I mean, my wife sit down the couch input on property, brothers got show. It's the same episode every time. It says, no, shocker here, you know, they're going to get thousands of dollars worth of renovation for like six hundred bucks and I don't know what plays they're living kidding. I love probably good for you guys. This is just jealousy talking. Come out here. I have a look at your pool. She sits down to watch property brothers, you'll fall asleep. I'll grab the remote, a flip it over to the dodgers game. And after twenty minutes, you'll wake up and say, why did you do that? I was watching that show and like, no, you weren't. You're sound asleep because I was not asleep. I'd know everything that's going on. Then she'll flip it back over to progress now, new property, brothers, new couple, and she's so proud. She will. Not admit the fact that that is not the couple you were looking at before talked a little rancher that they're renovating. We're all like the coastal, whatever. So yeah. So we all have that perception, but some people, particularly they have a lot of anxiety can really miss perceive that fifty percent of our night is being wakefulness. These are the people who often tell you, oh gosh, the last six weeks have not been able to sleep mocking sleep in our too. But when you look at them, they don't look particularly impaired and that's a, that's a problem. We often referred to it as paradoxical insomnia. It's just not the problem that often they think they have. So with paradoxical insomnia, you're like, yo, I'm up all night thinking about my props doc, but it turns out you're actually asleep. You're just in light sleep that you think is wakefulness. So it's a small percentage of insomnia patients, but it does happen. And insomnia itself is something that plagues a lot of people most of whom don't fully understand it. And so when p. People come to you? Are they usually having trouble sleeping or is it mostly insomnia that you have to deal with? Like what's the big thing that brings people to you? So you think you're about to say it's really fifty fifty people who walked through our door. It's one of two things insomnia, or I can't. Sleep is a huge problem. And then the flip side is the individual who sleeps too much there nodding off at work and getting in trouble. They can't stay awake during their college classes. They not an offering heirs with concert name the situation as a promise. We've heard it imagines told you, I fell asleep during childbirth. I my first daughter, you know, intercourse during your own wedding. There's really some interesting things if people fall asleep doing there are entire Reddit threads devoted to this topic. If you need some tales about drowsy, pilots are people waking up in Halloween, coffins, and bathtubs. Now your uncle Allie has fallen asleep in her car. In the driveway after pulling in on multiple occasions, I fallen asleep on the bathroom floor with a toothbrush. In my hand, somehow I've fallen asleep face. I in the laundry pile more than once I want snoozed at a gothic, industrial club will skinny. Puppy was blasting. All sober. Now, patron Saint of podcasts allergies editor Stephen, Ray Morris texted me while it was writing this to tell me that he fell asleep standing up once at Disneyland as an employee, which is the most Stephen remorse story I have ever heard. Now it's all cute and fun until you get the Bill. Sleep deprivation bumps up the risk of us screwing up and it has an economic wall up ready for this fifty billion dollars yearly and the United States just from like sleepy sleepy. Oopsy. Daisy is now as for her accidents. It's estimated that six thousand people can die annually just because of drowsy driving. So staying on her couch when you're not up to party is literally saving lives because trust me even skinny. Puppy soundtrack might not be enough to keep Euler. People are sleeping. So those are the sort of the flips it too much sleep or the perception of non enough sleep or the two main things that people are coming to see us about. Wait, did our sleep start really getting screwed up? Like has it been in the last century since we've had lights since we've had jobs in factories like when when did things start getting dysregulates? Because everyone always hears that study of like farmers used to wake up in the middle of the night for three hours, and then they piece that like, what are we? How are we supposed to be sleeping? So that's a great question. I think our sleep has always been screwed up. I think the former that you're describing, I mean, he's got so much on his plate news to Burke Yalies everywhere and crop blight, and then money's bad. And so I think that they just never really thought about their sleep. I think that as we've moved forward to things have happened one, we've put a lot of barriers in front of our sleep, including podcasts that you're like, gosh, I should stop now, but I'm gonna listen to one more episode is awesome. Podcast alleys put together and then I'll go to bed, you know. Sleep found ads orders so that we have this much more technology at our fingertips. I mean, if I could have communicated with my girlfriend in middle school on a computer while we were both in bed and I could watch the movie Star Wars and he's I'm, I wanted to. I would not be talking to you today. There's no way I could have been. It would be too much for me. So I think that people are trying to deal with a lot more distraction. And then also so the twenty four hour culture really sort of gets in the way of prioritizing our sleeve. I think a lot of people want to do the right thing. They're just incapable of doing it because of all these bears in front of us. So there was a study published just last year that had tracked the sleep of ninety four people in Bolivia and Tanzania who were living hunter, gatherer lifestyles. They wanted to get a sense of pre industrialisation sleep habits, and it turned out there average sleep was only six point four hours a night, but they were all in good health. So they went to sleep about three hours after. Sunset, and then they got up before dawn and they slept pretty well through the night and as for insomnia, incredibly rare, so much so that they didn't even have a word for it in any of their languages. So how can this change your life? Now, the researchers think that the sleep patterns have less to do with sunlight and more to do with temperature, which is tightly controlled in her houses. It does not match outdoor temperatures by design. One article I read recommended sleeping in a room that was sixty to seventy three degrees Fahrenheit, which could help you get more restorative sleep. It's more natural. So this is just another reason to bundle up. Turn the heater down a Scottish, maybe keep a window open. I mean, as a person who sleeps like shit and also turns hotel room thermostats up to eighty degrees. I feel personally called out. I feel attacked by myself and I know this is still I feel like this is still such basic question, but what is the big difference like in brainwaves or. Or whatever. When we are awake and talking and functioning and like dodging things coming at our heads. But then the difference between that when we stone cold out, why does that sometimes happen in the literally the blink of an eye? Sure. So it can happen in the blink of an odd generally because you've developed a drive for sleep. So I was kind of compare sleep in hunger. If I somebody says I'm hungry and I offer them, we'll hear. I've got a sandwich. I don't want you want it. No, I want your sandwich. It'd be hard to argue that that that hungry yet. If you're looking in notice somebody looking at a trash can for something to eat, they must be very driven to eat. So sleep is kind of like that. We can really enhance our drive to sleep. And one of the things I always tell people is it sleep always wins. I mean, if you push yourself hard enough and get yourself sleepy enough, it's not something that you really have a lot of control over and you're right. It can happen in the blink of an eye when you're driving on the road, which is why a lot of people come to our clinic after there's been some sort of car accident. I was driving back from the concert, I felt okay. And the next thing I know I was in a median, I was in the oncoming lane of traffic. Sleep can sleep. Sleep happens. We're not in danger of not sleeping. I think that for a lot of when you look at sleep in terms of the wavelengths, like you're talking about what's interesting is when you look at somebody's brain activity when they're awake, it looks very different from somebody who's in deep sleep, deep sleep. You can see this consciousness part of your brain taking a back seat to the more primitive parts of the brain. We hear like with an earthworm. So we have these big slow ways. It has called deep sleep, slow wave, sleep consciousness is really suspended. Your brain is really taken care, much more primitive aspects of itself. But when you look at Remm sleep, it's almost impossible to discern the brain activity of somebody dreaming versus the brain activity of somebody who's awake, really? Yes, which is why it's really interesting people say Remm sleeper, deep sleep. They could not be more different. In fact, one of the only ways you can tell that somebody's dreaming, if you're just looking at their brain is to look at their muscle tone. Because when we dream were paralyzed, so it's obvious from looking at videotape. She's dreaming and she's awake. That's that's pretty obvious to purely look at the brain's activity. It's very difficult to discern and not to mention there's I move. And so he's very unusual bold movements that happen when we're dreaming that we don't see when we're awake. But really that muscle tone is the biggest way we differentiate somebody electric graphically as to whether or not they're sleeping. They're awake, which is fascinating. So when you dream, you're taking the tests naked and it was a test, you didn't know you were going to have and your friends like we're gonna take our test and and you're enrolled in the classroom. God didn't even know this is my recurring dream and you're sitting there taking a test or whatever, or you're being chased by wolves or whatever you like to dream about. You actually can't move when those things are happening, nor can we really regulate our body temperature, which is kind of interesting to why can't we move like what? And what is sleep paralysis. So sleep browse has has to do with that. So technically, all of us are experiencing a quote, unquote. So. Sleep paralysis when we dream. So what's happening is as we dream, our brain is sending the signal down our spine that paralyzes voluntary muscles, which is really interesting. Yep. So you're talking about creepy sleep studies admitted God. I love that. I used the word creepy all the time such a good word. So a bemused glance from your beloved fine. But as an extended occupation, it's really only fitting for Stocker vampire heartthrobs or someone in a lab coat with a clipboard. I like watching you sleep. It's. Kind of fascinating to me. The studies they use to sort of discern dreaming in the past were that you'd come in fall asleep and we will walk around while you sleep and look at you. And if we see your is moving quickly underneath your eyelids and you can find a friends, they close your eyes, move rile balls back and forth. You can see them moving under eyelids. At that point, they would wake somebody up and say, what's going on in the person would wake up and say, oh my God, I was taking the test naked or whatever their thing was. So that's how they determined that. Oh, wow. Looks like when these eyes are moving, people are dreaming, but they realized very quickly that every other muscle pretty much was not except for tiny little muscle in the ear, there's a tiny little muscle in the voice box are diaphragms work so we can breathe and then our fingers work. So we don't have so much clean up the next day. But outside of that, everything voluntary is completely shut down. So sleep rouses. What you're referring to is when people experience this, they experienced a recovery of consciousness. Before that paralysis has a chance to go away. So what happens is you said you go to bed and usually it's happening during stressful times in your life. Then when you wake up, you hear the alarm clock going off, but you're powerless to move to turn it off. It can often feel like something's like on your chest like sitting on, you can be a terrifying experience. It usually lasts about thirty seconds a minute, maybe and then it passes. But for a lot of people to have this kind of fluctuating lifestyles and difficult schedules, I can feel it a lot. It is a classic sign of narcolepsy if you get it a lot and your excessively sleepy, it could be a sign of that in. Interestingly, predominantly, like in the southern African American community, they often talk about something called the witch writing you, which is awesome. But I didn't even know that was came look, if if you look at antiquated and one of the cool things about sleep is awesome intersection between science and mythology. If you look at sleep, his idea, the witch riding you, they would think that a which was literally sitting on your chest when you slept at night writing you. So I looked into this and nearly every culture has a name for this nocturnal perpetrator of sleep paralysis in Scandinavian culture. It's a mayor or a damned woman and in Fiji. It's a demon in Thailand is a ghost in Britain. It's an old hag and in eastern Asia, it's a little breath stealing. Mouse Spain, blames it on a cat, but officially the Wikipedia for this is just titled casually night hag which honestly sounds like the kind of down to earth self-aware lady who'd be fun to drink marks with and go to the disco. Now as an Italian from northern California, I'd never heard. Heard of this very common southern United States colloquialism about a witch writing your back. But I did do a little further research now according to one, two thousand five study recurrent sleep paralysis was reported by twenty three percent of African American volunteers in the study, but only six percent of Cajun volunteers and it can be linked to panic disorder. So what causes panic disorder. The study states that significantly more early life stressors were reported by African Americans than Caucasians and went on to say that higher levels of psychosocial stressors, including racism and a culture ration- may contribute to the higher rates of sleep paralysis experienced by African Americans. So just another reminder that privilege is sneaky and scientists are wonderful for turning over rocks and looking at the stuff because the solutions might not be right under our literal noses in a couple of told me that the ways you would keep the witch ways to keep a knife of fork and spoon under your pillow. Oh, which is so cool. I love that, but even like incubates and succulents when you read about these demons that would kind of visit people during during the night there you know feelings of paralysis or there's some really great renaissance paintings of these demons sitting on top of people's chests is one called the nightmare, and that was the thought that this thing was sitting on you, which is why you felt the way, but it was actually the paralysis of the muscles in between your ribs making your rib-cage less easy to expand when you breeze with felt like wait on you, which is really interesting. I, I don't. I don't think so. I, if it did it never really inspired any kind of few now certainly woken up and felt kind of incapacitated, but I don't know that I've ever had sleep paralysis. Yeah, it happened to me once and it was horrifying. It was like, oh, I'm gonna happen when it happened. It happened oddly. I was on vacation, but I was on vacation with a boyfriend. I broke up with shortly thereafter. So maybe it was stressed, but. On your chest. God, he wasn't ghost boyfriend, I will. I was, but I remember just being like, oh, this is the thing that people talk about, but it just is so crazy. 'cause you feel like you're dead but alive. You feel like a GOP. So so when we talk about sleep, one thing that's fun to think about is sleep is not a light switch, so we're not awake, and then the lights which goes off. And while we're a sleep like state on off, it's really sleep is a mechanism in our brain, but then vigilance or wakefulness is too. So it's really too swift to. So when you're awake and we're sitting here, talking are wakes which is turned on our sweet sleep. Switch is turned off and we sleep vice versa. Now sleep paralysis is the wake and the sleep switch being turned on at the same time. God that cool is, are these which is kind of like instead of binary switches, they're more like levers that go. Yeah, go down like absolutely. And they're affecting each other. So as the sleeps which gets turned on and we start to accumulate chemicals like Dennis Zine that is feeding back. To make to make the other sweets like the a water park, like an indoor waterpark often has this massive bucket in the middle of it, it's constantly getting filled with water. And every seven minutes, it just dumps it on everybody. To this kind of health sleep sleep and wakefulness is we were awake and talking. We're queuing chemicals that are making that sleep bucket wanting to tip over more and more was while we were a lot sleepy or at eleven pm that maybe eleven AM. And so what happens in sleep that is kind of like a janitorial system. Like I read something about how with Alzheimer's and and other brain diseases that you're kind of like rinses off plaques, perhaps I don't know what kind of things are we cleaning, and I'm also asking you this as a way to get myself to sleep more to scare myself because I know I've got like a grimy aspirin, and I'm like, how can I clean this thing. That's great so much to impact there. So yes, when I was in medical school back in the late ninety, s I remember the lecture on the lymph attic system with an l. lymphatic was is the the cleaning janitorial, a great word janitorial system of our body. It's getting rid of waste products, kind of flushing it out. And I remember our lecture saying, but interestingly, the brain doesn't have one, and then we went onto the next top again, thinking, wait a minute, the most important organ of our brain or body does not have it this gentle system. So it turns out that that he insci- was wrong. This fantastic researcher in Maryland, she discovered it and I'm, I'm blanking on her name right now. Netter guard. I believe it was her name Danish neuroscientist, Dr making netter guard in twenty thirteen for anyone who just wants to get a tattoo of a new science hero and she discovered it. She said, it's hard to find because the way we. We would pair cadavers, you wouldn't see it so she'd not only discovered it. She named it the Glymph attic system with gene. And realized very quickly that not only is it pumping out waste products, but it's ten times more active and we sleep at night the more awake. So we've always known scientists really good about knowing stuff. We just don't know why. So we've always known that people who didn't sleep, particularly well often lint themselves to developing things like dimension, Alzheimer's disease. So now we've got this really interesting theory that if you are the shift workers staying up late playing video games at night, kind of abusing yourself, you're not allowing your body to engage this waste removal system effectively. So the question becomes, what waste product are we removing? We are removing a product called beta amyloid, which is exactly what you said that constituent of plaque in Alzheimer's disease. So if you have a busy schedule, you don't value sleep. And it's interesting because I'm getting the sense from you reading about you and learning more about you is that you can look at people in two different on a scale of the whole. Horrible. Insomnia. Patient can't sleep tries like crazy, desperate for sleep. Dreads going to bed at night. And then you've got sort of you the alley, the neurosurgeon, which is the person who's like, you know, if I can get two hours sleep, I'm pretty good. We want you to be in the middle, but we want you to find as you start getting into your thirties and forties that middle ground of just because I can do it probably doesn't mean I should so one major thing you can do to ease insomnia. You're ready for this. Stop being afraid of it. Back to winter says that the main cause of insomnia easing Zayed's and fear. You can see the Fiala g episode with Mary partner off for a one two punch on dealing with that. She's incredible. I'm in also on the same token, if you think you can get away with four hours of sleep, go ahead and try getting more lane your brains cleanup crew gets to work. Know what exactly what other things are we cleaning out other than the plaques, like what? How does that affect our memory? And our. Motor coordination in like our ability to think quickly by having a clinic cleaner brain. So all those things you mentioned are true. So and you can look at science in one of two ways. You look at the science that either deprived or restricted sleep, or you can look at sort of newer science where you force people to sleep longer and even does rest longer. But even within sleep medicine, my specialty is sleep and performance. So work with a lot of professional sports teams. Not that I really care that much about athletes amac care about them. I care about everybody. I'm not sort of rabid athletic fan, but what I like about athletes when you study it and you improve their sleep, we can immediately measure how well they're doing. So I've never seen the alley baseball card. You do a twenty four team was a good year for her and she, you know, she batted this she ran did she scored as many runs. So we're all doing things that require performance athletes. We tend to measure more right. So when you actually get an individual to restrict their sleep, so we. We don't do a lot of sleep deprivation experiments anymore because they're kind of difficult and inhumane, and frankly, somewhat dangerous. But even if you just restrict sleep, those things to me are much more meaningful thing. Most people believe that if he stay up all night, you don't work that well the next day. But what if you got four or five hours asleep for several days in a row? So I use a Fitbit, and this was actually me all last week averaged four hours a night for an entire week. I was so foggy that I confused my itenerary. I missed my first flight in ten years, and then I cried in an airport bathroom out of frustration at myself, like a big weepy, cranky, baby. So does lack of sleep. Make me a weak person though. Well, physically, yes, it's been shown that you bench press drops by thirty. You know twenty to thirty pounds. We make three times more tension, pro attention errors. We have a much more impaired ability to read the emotions and queues of other. There's do these experiments where you had here. The the person would say something like that's a great idea or that's a great idea. Wow, this info is really helpful. Our ability to kind of read cues to mostly attached. Other people becomes very impaired when we don't sleep. Now, the flip side is what if you do sleep, but if you do spend more time in bed, what if you're forced to spend ten hours in bed, no matter what sleeping or resting and it shows that people run faster. They swim faster. They react to things quicker their accuracy in terms of aspects of their life improve. They're happier. They have better ideas. It's amazing. They even lose weight. I mean, so the idea that difficulties in sleep is not affecting some part of your body is probably not true. Do you think that depression or anxiety are related to a lack of sleep? Like I know that depression anxiety is our problems. A lot of people face. It seems like more and more so many people are on antidepressants into exile medications. And also our sleep is kind of. Kinda crappy side note asking for myself. Is there any correlation with that or is what does one caused the other? I think it works both ways. I think it's not and most people who are struggling with depression, mood disturbance, saying Zion, we'll tell you things like if I could just sleep, I would feel better. And now you sit up this very vicious cycle of. Depressed, you're anxious. You're not sleeping well, and that's gonna feed back into making those the president in Saudi worse into makes you really not sleep well. So there is a downward spiral that can be set up there too. But I also think that the the, the relationship works opposite Louis. I think that individuals who are depressed. And who have difficulty with mood disturbance there. Their disorder is creating a lot of sleep disturbances as well as sleep disturbances, to helping to facilitate the disorder amidst very unusual to find somebody who has significant insomnia who doesn't have some degree of anxiety and insomnia theory would tell you that step one in terms of developing insomnia is you have a predisposition to it, your type a, you've got a lot on your plate and you know, type as a good thing. I mean, I want my surgeon who's got to take the tumor out of mind brain to be very Taipei. I don't want the. Oh, no, we'll get to it and we get to it. You know, I'm gonna fall the dead this summer and hacky sack flip-flop, Doug Johnson. I don't what that person. I want, you know, the really kind of focused, hyper focused type a attention to detail person, manage my finances, doing my surgeries, whatnot. So that type a tendency makes the world around you. Successful people have it when they start to apply that, that Taipei to insomnia becomes a real problem. So I think that you know, individuals who are struggling with mood disturbance, I think it's important to understand and have an open mind to at working in both ways. Some people resort, auto have depression, Dr winner. I'm not anxious it just my sleep is really messed up and they may be right, but it's also okay to sort of openness of up to the idea that maybe this is also playing a causative role in it too. So there's a huge connection between those two things. So lack of sleep can make you anxious and depressed according to one study, just skimping on your sleep. Excites your mic della in your insular cortex. Those are the parts of the brain that fire up your fight or flight response. But in depression can also cause insomnia. So the primary cause of just blinking awake in bed according to Dr winter is now, there are secondary causes like pain that doesn't allow you to fall asleep and those have to be addressed as a pain issue rather than asleep issue. But primarily insomnia, es and anxiety issue. Now, my personal issue was sleep. If we're going to get confessional is I learned this recently is called sleep avoidance or sleep. Procrastination. This is when you're tired and you need to sleep, but you just keep delaying it either watching movies or scrolling or working or reading. Now, there are a few causes of this one might be workaho Azam and not being able to admit that the day is done him or it could be loneliness and scrolling helps you feel connected to others. Also, I do that or even a busy day tending to a lot of people can leave you needing alone. Sometime in staying up. Well past, what is prudent is the only way for some people to get it so hypnosis like, yo, this is why I hang out in a cave in Haiti's. Nobody bucks me. So what are better sleep habits. The CDC has some hot tips centers for disease control who apparently considers not sleeping enough, kind of disease says, be consistent, go to bed at the same time each night, including weekends. If you can make sure that your bedroom is quiet, dark and relaxing and at a comfortable temperature, we've learned colder. This better who knew remove TV's computers smartphones from the bedroom. The CDC says to throw them into the simmering called Dera of a volcano. If you have one also avoid big meals and caffeine and booze before bedtime. We all kind of know that we're supposed to do those things. I'm trying to shift the way I'm thinking about sleep to thinking of it as a free thing. You can do to make your brain sharper in your skin. Glow, your and your future less adult with disease. So if sleep hygiene were thing you could buy and just not do. We would all be so pumped for it. We would Amazon prime this shit out of it, but really is just a behavior. So we have to see value in the behavior. How much to sleep hygiene affect how much you actually sleep like when you have to prescribe sleep hygiene? What do you tell people to do. So what I would say about sleep hygiene is this the media focus is a lot of attention sleep hygiene because it's sort of digestible little bite sized nugget, hey, having trouble sleeping, make sure your room is this temperature, and here's a study that shows that great moving onto the next topic or whatever. So sleep hygiene is great. I would say that in terms of its ability to solve a problem, twenty percent. So I would say of the people out there who is struggling with their sleep, that twenty percent of people if they did something related to sleep, hygiene could make their problem much better or solve it. And what I mean by that too is also the idea that it's sort of like knee pain. If you're a runner, you know my knees starting to hurt. So what are you going to do? You'll take some ibuprofen. Maybe you'll buy brace at CVS ice it. You'll take a couple days off. You're running. Well, you know, if you're doing all those things and still hearing this clicking sound and having this excruciating pain in your knee, eventually you're going to say, I don't know that this is within my. Ability to solve ego ceus specialists. They do an MRI. You've got a big piece of cartilage sticking into your joint. So to me, that's sort of the sleep hygiene is we sort of had this message out there that every one of your sleep problems is solvable. If you just get the right mattress in the right pajamas and the right noise machine and the your ear plugs and, and those are all fine. I think that for the other eighty percent of people, it's very anxiety provoking that you've invested in a five thousand dollar mattress. You've got Tom Brady's special pajamas that he wears in my God. He's of quarterback Mary to a model, so it's got to work without the sleepwear. I don't really feel like I would be able to achieve the things that I have done. You know, you got all this stuff going on and it's not working. I think that creates a lot of anxiety sort of like, were I'm hopeless like nothing word of read twenty different books, which is why didn't put a lot of sleep hygiene in my book just because I thought, I think we all know these things now it's kind of getting to the point of. Common knowledge. You know what? Not having the TV on really loud all night long. It's not good. Okay. You know, if you if you, if you're surprised by that, where have you been so anyway? So I think sleep hygiene is important. We want to set the stage for good sleep wouldn't have positive thoughts about sleep like sleeps. Great. I mean, we shouldn't be dreading it or fearing it. I think it's even strange to be kind of neutral about sleep. I mean, me neutral about brushing your teeth, but sleep off. It's the best thing in the world. Are you get in bed and whatnot? And so I think that we need to cultivate that attitude but understand that it has its limitations and now how dark and quiet should your room be though I, you know, again, I think that if you're struggling with your sleep really dark and really quiet. People ask about noise machines or things like that. I mean, we're always going to sleep better and a quiet environment. So and our brains pay attention to sound. So if somebody says, well, I really like listening to a podcast when I go to bed at night, that's fine. But maybe you could set it. So after fifteen minutes, it turns it self off. Dark rooms are really important parents. I, I've talked about this in the book by parents like redid their basement when I was growing up and it's like unfinished basement, they finish it themselves and kind of did it. You know, outside the, you know, the the law, I think, you know. So one of the bedrooms bedroom down there has no way to get out. So it's like surrounded by earth on two sides, and there's a door, there's zero window. It is incredibly dark, incredibly quiet, incredibly cool. And I remember going there like when we come home for college breaks and falling asleep in there and waking up at noon, he know it and being like, what time is it? I have you been. So even the smallest little bit of light coming in through a door underneath a blind can can really impair our sleep suicide. Note, we're going to get all into blue light and how it affects sleep in next week's part to also stick around to this episode after the credits. And I'm going to tell you and only a little bit grow secret about my. I'm ask anyway, sleeping with the lights on very confusing to your brain. So if you're a shift worker, especially in your sleeping a lot during the day, you want that room to be so dark that you cannot see your hand for your face and quiet, maybe with air plugs in quiet. And if you can't do that, then you know, like you said, earplugs or a mask over your eyes is probably just as good. And in your book you mentioned it's okay to not sleep in the same room as a spouse or a partner? It is. I mean, I always a doctor who practices in Virginia, so I consider that the south and you've got to be very careful about the way you speak to people. They always give you that look like you try to steal my wife. Says, look like known, it's, you know. So I have, I, I think sleeping with somebody is fantastic. I do find it sort of strange that we have evolved to do that. Like, you know, I don't necessarily feel the urge to do other things like, let's sit in the same care, Honey and eat this from the same plate. You know, it's okay to be like you sit there and eat your thing. I'll eat over here. A lot of things we do separately. Oh, you do it over there. I'll do my thing ever here. Even our bathrooms have two different things. Sometimes you know you. So I do think it's funny that we've evolved to kind of create this thing that we need to sleep in the same bed. Maybe it was that houses were small, you're conserving heat there, things of that nature like that. But I think that you can love somebody intensely and not be in the same bed with them, or you would always tell people is something's, there's a little bit more palatable for some couples is let's pick Thursday, Thursday, we'll be. Today we watch Handmaid's tale, but then we sleep separately so we can consider what that means into reserve society, independent of one another. In over breakfast. We'll talk about the episode and how we feel about sleep before. That's how we let it happen or whatever. So so that way there's no guilt. It's like, oh, it's Thursday night. We're going to sleep separately and it's fun to get back together on Friday night kind of thing. So when I was on call as a doctor, I would always sleep in the basement and guest bedroom that had a window by the way. And I know my wife was secretly thrilled when I would not be there, you know, can stretch out somebody's moaning or pager's going off and whatnot. So I think it's okay if somebody says, look, I really like sleeping with my partner. I don't want to sleep away from him or her. That's perfectly fine. But I think it's also you. We are capable of loving somebody and not be in the same mattress. I think. Marriage is asleep Kasur and my wife came with that word. You call it a sleep -cation. It's kind of exotic, like when what they're up to tonight. And you know, I always tell people, you can get in bed and read and maybe full around. And then when it's time to sleep, you know, kind of do the thing like, well, I'm gonna leave now and it doesn't mean you don't love them or wanted to be with them. And I've hates me being anywhere near her at night for some reason, kind of gravitate overdose out of the bed. She's I get away, just don't want this. I don't mean l. d. I don't think it means she doesn't love me, but you know, I think that people just need to sleep and do what's right for their sleep and not necessarily have some guy hung breathing and hanging over time. Is by a good thing. And if you do this side note, you're not alone. I read one study that said almost fourteen percent of couples who live together sleep apart mostly because of snoring. And I read this one tip that said sleeping on your back can cause snoring and you can wear a t shirt with a pocket backwards and put a tennis ball in the pocket to train you not to sleep in Shiva's corpse pose now if it works or if you have Wimbledon nightmares, please let me know. Now, what about naps? Good or bad? I must have my definition of a, so I think it nap is good. If you're a fishing sleeper. When I mean by that is if you're somebody who gets in bed, falls asleep in a time that's that's pleasing to you. You sleep relatively well, and then you still feel like you need sleep on top of that. I think it nap is a great thing. You know, if you can build it into your day at a designated time, have a little place where you can do it. It's kinda special, and I think that's great. I think it's a bad idea when somebody says, well, I went to bed last night. I was really upset about a decision on the voice and can't believe they sent her home. Could you so much better than that guy who's saying dock of the bay for God's sakes? He got through seeing doc in the bed on believe it. And she completely reworked that Christina anyway, Doug grassy. So you're really upset about that thing and and. You go to bed and it takes three hours to fall asleep. You know, you're up all night because of that. You can't believe that decision. And then you take a nap the next day because you couldn't sleep last night. Now you had the opportunity to sleep, but for whatever reason your brain decided it didn't want to. I think that's a dangerous path to go down. You see that a lot with retired people and the there's no kids in the house anymore. I level people they can get up at three o'clock in the morning. They went to go to bed six o'clock after macneil Lehrer if they want to, they can do whatever the hell they want to. They've earned it for God's sakes. But the problem is when they have no sort of constraints on their sleep, if they have a bad night sleep in or take a massive, four hour nap right bef- at five o'clock in the afternoon, and now it's eleven o'clock. They want to go to bed. They can't another frustrated and so the the cycle sort of begin. So I think napping is great. Try to keep it relatively short, twenty twenty-five thirty minutes closer to the beginning of the day. So we're adding onto last night, not subtracting from the upcoming night. And I think Napster Graham, such as such a wonderful thing to kind of sleep at a time when you're not supposed to. I think it's also interesting to pay attention to hell you fall asleep when you nap meaning now. Well, a lot of people who it takes them four hours to fall asleep at night, and they feel completely dependent on sleeping pills, but they'll say things like house sitting the other day, it's hard for me to come up from Georgia. I'm so exhausted that take a nap and I always ask him, well, what pill d take to take your nap after church and look at you like, oh, I don't take a pill. Then why do you think you're able to fall asleep after charge, but you're not able to fall asleep, eleven o'clock when you want to go to bed. And it's always interesting to answers. They give you because we think of nap is being this sort of extra credit. You know, teach gives you some problems in last two problems on the test or credit. Well, I've got some time. I'll do it no pressure and you to get those right? Because it's like if you get them great, if you don't, it's not that big a deal. It's extra credit nap. Sorta like our sleep, extra credit. You know, it's bonus sleep. But boy, you know, the. Final exam is our sleep at night. We gotta sleep now like we want to kind of get out of that place. Good place of sleeping doesn't let you sleep, doesn't let you sleep. And so we don't want to. We want nap to facilitate the process. So to recap, naps are fine, but not if they mess up your bedtime. So do it earlier or just save that sleepiness for sweet sweet nights lumber. Now, if sleep is an issue for you or for someone in your life, maybe take like a nerdy approach, I and just gather some data. And so what is the best way to track it? Because knowledge of your sleep will probably motivate you to get better. Sleep are fit bit trackers. Good. Should you wear like a headband with electronics on it? Should you just try to keep a journal next year bed? Like what's the best way to figure out if you're getting enough? So all those things are good. I think the personally the best way to figure out if you're getting enough sleep is to look up either in my book or online. Some. Called the Epworth sleeping scale. So I was hoping that this quick test was named for like a Lord EPP were the Duke of naps who fell asleep playing crooked. But it was actually coined by an Australian Dr Murray Johns for the hospital that he works at. Okay, a little bit of a snoozefest on that backstory. Anyway, you can take it at Epworth sleepiness scale dot com. I myself scored in eleven mild, excessive daytime sleepiness. Now, Dr winter explains what the scale is and which is a series of scenarios that you might find yourself in in the question is how likely would you fall asleep if you were that situation? How likely would it be free to fall reading a book, watching television passionate in a car for an hour. If you're answering the question all the time, always fall asleep can't read because I fall asleep. As soon as I start reading, I really can't sit down the evening. We're all fall asleep. That's probably a good indication that you're not getting enough sleep. There's something wrong with it. So I think all. All those modalities that you mentioned, sleep diaries, Fitbit tracker. I'm wearing one that's made by Nokia, which I think is outstanding because it uses movement and some heart rate variability. All those things are great. Does need to understand sort of what they're built to do and what they're not built to do. But there are a great way. All these things do such a good job of keeping us honest about our sleep amount would go around, tell people. I get seven hours sleep at night on eleven o'clock, get up around six, which is such a lie. Like when I started wearing these war, several truckers on my arm for a month to see which ones were good and not so good. And then I did a sleep study of myself on the last night wearing all of them to see how they compared to the actual sleep study. In the thing I learned the most about that process was well a liar. I was about my own sleep and not even knowing that I'm I'm not deceiving people intentionally. It's just that. Yes. Ideally, I would like to bet eleven get, but six, but my son swims, he's got to get. Driven to the pool early or Stephen Colbert looks really funny. So I'm watching some of his monologue and by the time you get the dog put away and I get some water and kind of get things. Turned lights out from a wife has fallen asleep on the couch. Check on the kids. Oh, Gacek one more Email and see what's going on here. It's closer to midnight or even later sometimes. So I think those things do a very nice job of keeping us honest about how much sleep are we really getting. And I think that can be very invaluable. I step in terms of solving a problem, but I do think there's a lot of questions you do. You sleep well at home versus girlfriend's place. Do you sleep better after a bunch of beers because you feel like you do versus when you don't drink? And I think you know posing a question to something like a Fitbit can be really interesting. I'm really on exercise kick, let me look how my sleep looks now versus a few weeks ago before I started. Oh, wow. It looks a lot more efficient or I seem to have more deep sleep or I fall asleep a lot faster. Generally they work best when you're. Parrying data to itself like your own data. Pre this guy, I'm dating post this guy. I'm dating pre this supplement. I'm taking posts. That's where it tends to work its best, I think. And if general of someone saying, I'm having trouble sleeping, I'm having trouble falling asleep. I'm having trouble getting the right amount of sleep. Is there like a one basic piece of advice that you're like start here and see if that helps? Yeah, it's interesting. I think if somebody says to me, I'm having trouble sleeping. They've already sort of moved past the biggest barrier, which is the person who comes to me and says, I can't sleep. Dr. Winter says that a lot of times we're getting a little more sleep than we think we are. Because if you literally did not sleep, you would not be alive. Wait. What's the record in the world record is something like eleven days. And even that was a sham. The investigators said, we couldn't keep him awake. He kept having these little micro sleeps even we were standing on his feet. So provided that we're not seeking the world's attention by not. Sleeping, how much should we sleep? A lot of people are seeking ten hours asleep at night, but they're only capable getting six hours and forty five minutes. So that difference of three hours and fifteen minutes think is insomnia. It's also important to make sure that there aren't things that are happening within your body that are impairing your ability to sleep as well to that can be something from this insomnia, too restless leg syndrome to sleep apnea. There's a lot of things that happen at night. They can impair our -bility to sleep. And how necessary is asleep study? Usually? Is it like, oh, figuring odds? I mean, I really work hard to keep people out of asleep center. I think most, you know, we learn as doctors most of the diagnosed diagnosing and treatment of problems has to do with the clinical interview. So that's why we spent a lot of time talking to our patients because we need to understand what the problem is the the sleep study is often confirmatory already think this is what's going on. So we'll do conferment or sadly in twenty eighteen. A lot of times this studies done because that's the only way you can get insurance to pay for something. They won't take the experts word for it. They want proof that this person has narcolepsy that went proved his person as restless leg syndrome, even though clear clearly from their story. That's exactly what's going on. So not everybody who has asleep problem needs a sleep study and of the people who need sleep studies. Many of them can be done in your own home with these little simple devices. So don't let that be a stop or in terms of getting help. But you know, when they're necessary, they can be incredibly helpful. So sleep studies can be a great ally in terms of convincing doctors that you do indeed have a serious issue. They can also be a little bit like Mr. Snuffle Las Vegas, and if insomnia is caused by anxiety in your life, taking a break and sleeping in a hotel room like environment can be just the vacation you need from your usual mental anguish. Even if you have a bouquet of wires, tapes your face. So if you want to start small, you can jot down the hours. You. Sleep, of course, or you can try asleep trucker. I bought my Fitbit at bed bath meow and with one of those twenty percent off coupons that my neighbor left near the mailboxes for a week, and it's been a nice gays into the underworld of my sleep issues. Note tune in next week for part two, which features more remedies to your sleep issues. Patrons wrote in with over two hundred questions. We got to as many as we could.

And of course, my mom birthday girl, Nancy words, magic cure for insomnia that I use all the time when I've had too much caffeine or at seven PM, but I have to go to sleep to get off for the airport. So all of that is next week. So make sure to come back the extra hour or so for part two could add years back onto your life. Now, meanwhile. Dr. Chris winter is at sports sleep.

As untangle their stories on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen to podcasts. Now here's a highlight from coast to coast. Am on iheartradio and welcome back to coast to coast. George noory with you. Let me introduce our guest. Ryan heard the author of sleep paralysis. A guide to hip nag visions and visitors of the night co editor of the two volume research set lucid dreaming new perspectives on consciousness and sleep and his work has been featured on npr cnn. Mashal vice gawker and much more. He's lectured at venues as varied as stanford university in the rhine research center. He is currently serving as a director of spiritual development and unitarian society of germantown and philadelphia and his electoral in psychology and holistic studies. John f. kennedy university ryan. How did you get involved in investigating sleep paralysis. Well it came upon the pretty honestly george. What happened is i was fourteen years old and my story is really typical. It's what happens to a lot of people who've never had this experience before. I was fourteen years old and i woke up from a nightmare and the nightmare itself. It was a bad dream. And i answered the phone and something said through the phone darkness. Rules scared me away. I don't blame you. I felt that feeling of being held down by something that was not me in my bedroom in. It's a feeling that people who have gone through this. I don't think i have but it's horrible isn't it. it's a it's a. It's a very creepy horrible feeling. Because you feel awake in aware when it happens and so you feel like you're in your right mind it at the same time. You're having this experience of something controlling you ryan. I've always been told The phrase old hag syndrome originated from sleep paralysis. Is that true. That's true comes out of newfound lineup up in canada. And it was david hubbard. The research of david hubbard that really popularized in made the world aware that. There's all these cultural traditions that are you know similar that experienced people experience e. paralysis in similar ways. But what he really discovered. Was that even people who don't have a cultural background for this phenomena. They still have some of these same experiences. And so it's deeper than just you know fairy tales of the bogeyman. Boogeyman is in essentially. It's part of our neurobiology. Perhaps physically explain what sleep paralysis is. Yeah so so you know when you break it down. It's the brief inability to move or speak just while you're falling asleep or you're waking up And then sometimes it's accompanied by by visions by dream visions that are projected into the waking world. That's the old hack that's it. That's it and so inexperienced often with the feeling of pressure on the throat in on the chest and this happens because when we are essentially we're in kind of in between two worlds in between the dream world and the waking world and when we're in the dream world lauren remm sleep are must muscles are paralyzed. And so we actually experience the feeling of our diaphragm being a little bit of a dead weight when we try to breathe. We're breathing shallowly and when we try to gasp for air. 'cause we're scared. Suddenly that feels like intense pressure on the chest so basically our fear cycles in and makes it worse is it a medical condition ryan. You know. it's it's mostly harmless for most people who experiences as asleep symptom However there's some people who suffer really terribly from c. Paralysis either because they have another sleep conditions such as narcolepsy your sleep apnea or it kind of blends into their post traumatic stress disorder or other really severe anxiety disorders and so these people you know suffer endlessly night after night multiple sessions in a row. the good news is it can be treated. I'll be curious next hour when we take phone calls so many of our listeners have experienced this and as you just mentioned in some cases that does happen pretty often. Doesn't it yes. Some people really do suffering more than others but for the vast amount of people who have it like once in their life or twice in their life and and some recent statistics or saying that. Something like it'd be eight percent of the world's population has had this once in their life. Is it originating from the brain that is basically the neurobiological explanation. It is a blend of the sleep state and the waking state is sort of like we're caught between worlds and so what happens in this case is that we get that ramp paralysis still going on and also mind even though we feel awake aware we're still in a dream you kind of mine and so not only are we projecting dream memory into a waking life but we also have sort of an ability to experience more intense fear because the amid that middle part of the more active during ram sleep than ordinary consciousness. Is there any data that shows whether men or women get more. Yeah it seems that essentially that women it more really okay. This could be you know related to some other sociological factors related to anxiety As well as You know environmental racism basically people who have problems with sleep in general who don't have the ability to get full night's sleep because of their jobs or their lack of jobs are people who suffer more. Is it the same as night terrors. Or is that something else. Oh good question. Yeah so night. Terrors are something different. That is something that happens in a deep. That's like a waking out of deep sleep out of stage four sleep and it feels like often people can't even remember it they sort of just start thrashing about in bed and and their partner will. We'll try to hold them down and calm them down and then they kind of come out of it and it's it's sort of like mucking about in deep sleep see paralysis really is so crystal clear that cautiousness the awareness It's really a a nightmare of own interesting. Take and If you have one of the other which would you prefer sleep paralysis. Her night terrors paralysis. Any any night because the thing about c processes it's really there's a blessing wrapped up in this curse and the blessing pieces. Is that once you get over your fear. And you realize that you can't be harmed you can shift you can rotate it. You can move it into a lucid dream experience or even an out of body experience. Does it happen more often. When you're going to sleep or when you're waking up it depends on the person you know for myself. It happens more in the middle of the night. When i'm waking up and then drifting back into sleep so say it's like two in the morning or so and then i'll wake up immediately after a dream so i must have come out of ram sleep and then i as i'm drifting back down. Suddenly i'll feel that that kind of pressure take hold and then i'm like okay. Comes your basically your brains awake. Your body really isn't as isn't that what it is. That's a great way to say it. The brain think of it as the mind awake the body asleep. And so it's like you're stuck you're stuck in the threshold. It was turns out to be the threshold of the gateway into other extraordinary experience. But most people don't get past the fear and so i'm always just reminding people you know this is normal. This is something that is is physical and if you remind yourself in the moment that this is true that really calms the fear back down and so people can break out of it. You usually within thirty seconds or so. I used to scare the living daylights out of myself. And when i was a kid because i used to think about the theory of death in that death was like sleep paralysis. Where they put you in the casket. Your brains awake you wake up. But you can't move because you're dead your body's not functioning but your mind is so you're stuck in this casket You go crazy. Yeah oh my gosh and you know what's really interesting about that. At sort of morbid fantasy. Is it relates to some vampire mythology which is also related to sleep paralysis. This sort of You know you know. of course. he's like medieval tales. Right of of people who were buried alive because they actually were in a coma or something like that well. People experience the paralysis they they their mind jumps to those cases And and of course vampires show up during super paralysis. loosen in for some people. In some cultures there the figure that emerges out of the myths at the side of the bed in with ryan heard. We are talking about sleep paralysis and nightmares. His book called sleep paralysis. What is the intruder ryan. So this is where it gets interesting right because because medical science can explain talk about the physical components of of sleep. Paralysis is such a boring medical term. But the visionary experience of it the encounter with thomas other that happens in the bedroom at night. That's the intruder experiences in people. Have it in in a in a wide spectrum. They might know they hear footsteps coming towards them or or or feel somebody or something. Sit on the bed next to them. You know the mattress kind of sinks down And so it can be quite creepy and then and then the full experience is when people see the entity or the stranger. Is i like to call it. Sort of standing over them hovering over them and then putting their hands on them and in some cases people have experiences of sexual or aggressive. All by these encounters. We also get a lot of reports of extraterrestrial visitations where people feel as if there's an e t in their bedroom or has taken them somewhere and brought them back. Is that the same thing. I would never try to do a direct correlation between those two phenomena. But let me tell you that there is some really interesting research that shows that people who report alien abduction are also reporting sleep paralysis experiences and then there's another third piece about these are folks who also tend to have have some some trauma in their lives and so there is something interesting about that. Try there and yeah you know. I mean like we talked about. We talked about the old hag. You know Other people experienced ghosts on the body. you know some part western culture. We might see this thomas other in its malevolent forms as the alien. It doesn't mean that aliens do or do not exist. I rather think of it as that sleep. Paralysis is the state of mind where we encounter at these kinds of being. Is that a paranormal experience. What's going on here. I you know it's absolutely up to what the believer thinks because our beliefs plays such a huge role and how this thing is is encountered in in the ways that experience can turn. There is some interesting research showing that folks who believe in paranormal experiences and have other. paranormal experiences. Also have sleep ralston encounters such as this and so there could be a feedback interpretation there now when somebody goes out of body in many people have been to do that. Is that related to sleep paralysis is. There's some kind of syndrome that's about the same. yes so so one of the things about sleep rows. it's so fascinating is besides these visual hallucinations. You get these motor hallucinations as well. And and so so one can feel the body begin to shift turn in almost a separation of the idealized self with the identification with the body and this can result in an out of body experience. And i've had this many times and it's so easy to happen out of out of sleep paralysis. Really one has the inclination to do so. It can be done pretty easily interesting. take now. You said that it's controllable. How do you control this in terms of sleep paralysis itself to be able to get rid of it for example so so this is the tricky part. Is that sleep paralysis. i would say it's manageable people who were prone because it still happens to you. Doesn't it it does. It still happens to me. I had the experience maybe a week ago. Middle middle of the night and even after all these years i still have to coach myself through it in the moment i mean. At what point do you tell yourself. S- only sleep paralysis. You'll be fine in a few minutes soon as your body wakes up to your brain you'll be okay. i mean. can you tell you up. it's right it's like it's basically a mantra. It's a mantra but the the main thing that really can can affect the change people's reality about how often that they experienced it for a lot of people is paying attention to to sleep hygiene about the quality of sleep that they're getting in attending to and and and helping work with anxiety In in just yeah being able to get rast which you know that that's something that's very difficult to actually do. But my police practices noticing. How much caffeine you take in. You know staying away from alcohol before bed. You know these kind of things can really make a difference in how many times you have. Prowse's where i don't have. It is it. Because i'm not remembering that i have it or maybe i just don't have you probably don't have it in terms of the awareness of it but when you're having a dream your body is actually paralyzed at the time. So you know the mechanism that dream. Everybody does right exactly and so and if we didn't if you weren't paralyzed in our dreams we'd be you know punching hitting our partners next to us as we battled the bad guys are dreams and so the that's sort of the evolutionary psych piece to this is that that's a really helpful mechanism And then what happens here is sleep. Paralysis seems to be just a little bit of a twist on it. And hey guess what you're gonna be paralyzed and you're gonna project your worst nightmares in front of you. How long is the body paralyzed before you realize this paralysis and i'm gonna wake up if for most people it it's just say thirty seconds or a minute. Maybe two minutes which is a long time. It can be right. That's a long time. It's long enough to say. Hey i can't get out of this breed during that period you can and this is. What's so so interesting. Is that if you remember. I can breeze and you don't try to gulp in breath like we do when we're fearful but take a slow measured normal breath you'll realize oh i i can breathe. I'm good and when we can control our breath we can control our fear and that is really one of the key. I'd say one of the key things to learn for those who are just getting a handle of their sleep paralysis right now is learn how to control your breath and then once you've got that sort of anchor you can try to wake yourself up. And so one of the ways that i recommend for people to try to wake themselves up is to try to wiggle their toes or their stingers scrunch. Their face So there you know to make a face because these you know these parts of the body can break the that remm paralysis and then you can come out of it. Pretty easily does sleep paralysis. Make you not want to go to sleep. Yes it does. And so many people will have a seat prowess and of course. Just be too scared to go back to sleep. They'll sleep with the light on They just won't sleep for the rest of the night. And and knowing what we know about sleep hygiene sleep paralysis comes and goes with how much regular sleep that you're getting quality sleep you know it creates this cycle Where you're gonna have it again because you're not getting enough sleep so breaking that cycle is so important finding ways to feel safe to feel grounded and rested where you sleep and you know for different people. It's different it could be about if you have a bedroom door to lock. It could be about about saying prayers mantras before bed or doing a little bit of of You know sleep yoga before. Sleep to kind of make the body feel more relaxed or even reading. So just find your way of relaxing before sleep and that will make the experience less common. Listen to more coast to coast.

I see that every time I talk someone's like who you sound hot. And I'm like, I feel like I'm like a dying frog. Really? I'm always like, I'm sick. I'm supposed to like rest. I feel like I can't strain it too much. I'm just gonna like not go too hard with his talking like it's going to be this. I can't wait to fast for this episode like twenty minutes when you're like screaming. I'm gonna tell myself before I was like just be chill ram. It's okay. But if you listen to on my God, I sound so children's Zan listen, my insider swear like screaming, but my voice just isn't anyways. Last week. We talked about Remm Chela. Oh my God. You don't have to think them about remedied Remm cello. Ceram cello was I'm so annoying. My birthday party that I had last weekend. I'm officially as we're talking right now. It's Valentine's Day. So I'm twenty four and one week old day times to everyone Valentine single awareness to literally I also in fact, we saw a little bit into our demographics because it's hard on the podcast really get more demographics, then like YouTube Princeton, most of us cows are single. Eight percent of us. I think our singles makes me feel. I think we should just change them. Okay. Before we came up with the name, pretty basic. I totally show. I was like we should call like alone for a refresher alone or like seeing. Unleash it was like no because we're gonna boyfriends were formed in one. You know one day, you know, that's true. That's true. But arriving shell out. So news tackled to my birth. Yeah. Yeah. It was stage. You have a good time. I did I honestly was like wouldn't by so fast. I the whole night ran around asking everybody. Are you having a good time? I know I feel like I saw you like half the time half the time. I like you were just bopping around or whatever. I have. Apparently, I talked to have you talked to everyone. That's why I was like, I know you're just kind of like making the rounds and say hi to everyone. But you every time you talk to me or like is everyone having a good. Yes. Soured. She's like stop asking. I was like I just want everyone to have fun. Apparently like everyone had the best time ever. Well, that's why I could never I can't. I don't see me ever throwing a party that big because I think I would stress so much about people having fun. So I have great time though. I. Night of my life. The best part is. Yeah. I didn't really see leash that much. I saw her after and then I had to sleep over after. But yeah, I one point. I was like the party was almost over. I think we had like maybe twenty minutes left or something. And she just runs up to me. And she's like the specific person that I was really excited to come came. And she just looks. She goes blank is here. And I I apparently was talking to someone and I go oh my God. After my voice, I scream and I run away and aleisha was like the guy who I was talking to she's out. Sorry, lisera ran away and spent the whole rest of the night with that person. I was so excited. Oh my God. Not cello is so much fun. The photo booth was fine. The only thing was it was a little cold towards the end. But surprisingly, I wasn't as cold as I thought I was going to not wearing any clothes. I was totally good. Yeah. It was like on this rooftop by the pool, and it was hold that night. It was like fifty degrees, and we had heat lamps out. Oh, my God is bumble boy is short as we. Everyone. I said that there would be an update. Okay. So a few weeks ago, we were talking about bumble boy will plan. I was convinced that he was not the height that he said, I forget what he okay by me. He was five when he didn't tell me on his dating profile, which was bumble. He's said he was five ten and then Alicia was fully convinced. He's not five ten. Yeah. Because we hung out when he came on my birthday party. So we were gonna we hung out one time. And I remember thinking that, but I wasn't sure because we were on the beach, and sometimes the sand is kind of like, you know, we always. Long story short. I said I would give you an update next time. I see him. I saw him. I gave him a hug, I swear. He didn't remember me. He's like, hey, what's up, and he just like hug like it was feel awkward? Oh, no sorry. Maybe I look different. Or maybe you just got ten times better looking. He didn't recognize you anymore. Thank you. Dr. Anyways, no-one no-one one knew that we're talking about. But like you and I. Whatever anyways. I was a little like, oh rude by swear. He was not. I was wearing tennis shoes. I talk about you all the time. Then he knows who you are. Maybe he was just like uncomfortable. Play Kuku cool like, oh, yeah. All right. Oh, have we met like on? Yeah. I can I'm willing to bet now that he's not five ten. Oh T now. I'll probably talking then I think like five nine. Okay. Okay. If he's five eleven to shore. If you spend six foot, totally fine true. My point being I take it back at well. It's this thing, you know. Everyone's always like I felt like guys lie about their height. Yeah. On dating profiles. Well, maybe I'll bring a meter sticks. The next time we see him pulled or we could just straight up. Ask him. Should I write out salary? Gasol bumble? Boy was there. He seems sweet didn't talk too much again. I was like, oh, you don't remember me fine. He made a lot of friends. Yeah. He looked like he was starving. He was dancing. He was thriving wanna die if he's ever listened to those. He wasn't. I don't I don't think he would I sign saying Moore style me to I could process my love for him. And he would never know. He would never know just make a whole episode of a love letter to him. And it'd be hilarious and send it to. Now. My God like like, David Moyes love. Oh my God. I just watched that the other day heading me room. I I know it was only because I had to. I was like I was forced to just sit on my couch for an hour and a half. So I was like, okay. I guess I'll Channing nothing. My nail. Oh my God. No us and to Neo if you is he's he's single is. He hell I know someone who matched with him on riot. I know our mutual who. Well, they're not talking anymore. I'll tell you later. Oh my God. So he's on riot. Yeah. Me reactivates riot right now anyways. From chela. What else are we talking about? Oh my God our game. We wanna play. Okay. So this week. I thought of something fun. We alternate. Last week was made this time around so game for this week. I thought we would do do you remember back on YouTube like a few years actually long time ago the perfect imperfections tag? Did you know I was going to say that I uploaded it did you I did one a basically his tag where you talked about. I think it was three things that you love about yourself. It wasn't three things. You hate about yourself. It was there things about yourself. Oh, and there was a lot of controversy around that tag, which I see why some people were like, oh my God. I love my smile like like at sound. But I hate my mother and also you're being like, I hate my nose, and then some people it'd be like, we're just fine. So I kinda get why it was kind of controversial. But I liked the overall the overall meaning of it. I'm pretty sure was to show people who think that your perfect to show that you still have insecurity shots, the whole thing about it. Because it's like empowerment of like, I love this. But myself, and this is something that, you know, I don't love as much, but I fully accept that. It's this. So I thought that we could. Share? Maybe like our favorite quality about herself whether that is superficial or an actual. And then your least favorite quality by yourself who wanted to go. I take the stage. Okay. I that I like favor quality by yourself. I I do really like I feel like a lot of things like a love hate relationship coming. I like how I'm really impetus. And I like that I can see a lot of people's sides to things, and I feel like it helps I don't know. I just there's a lot of times where I feel like it can cause stress too. But overall, it is something that I really really like that I have that characteristic. I think it's something really interesting to see the level, of empathy that you have for things because I feel like it's not something that you can teach someone to have. I think it's just naturally instilled in you. Yes. And I never realized how much empathy I had until I've seen people who don't like I thought that was normal for everyone. Yeah. And it makes sense. Now looking back being like, oh like that's just something. I have more of than other people just totally fine, which I think is an empathetic thought to have. But I think that's really cool. Like, I don't know. So yeah. But then there's so many times I hate based on but that it 'cause I can justify anyone's actions, and I'm like, no if they're being that way, I need to. Like, yeah. I feel it to something. You love yourself o k met my turn. Okay. I think I love and this is kind of the same idea where it's so great. But in certain situations, it also it can be a downside is that I care a lot about people. And I feel like I give everybody might all in our relationships. Whether it's like, someone I'm dating or a friendship or whatever may be like, I I do try my best to give him my all. And a lot of times. It does end up with me getting more hurt in the end. But for the times that it works out. I think it's worth that hurt that I felt from other people and to have that that mutual love with people that give it back to me just as much if not even more that's like that's like one of those tumbler quotes where it's like I'd rather love at have nothing at all or something. Like that. You know what I mean? So I told I get it. Yeah. We're both people pleasers too. Yeah. So on top of that. And you're a two on the Graham, which is very late people. We've talked about the any look a little bit on here and people always tweet us about it at hitter. Because if you if you know what it is and. If you're in not world, you are obsessed with it. Yeah. Is when we demo this podcast. We adjust taken it knock in September. We are doing. And we were like obsessed that we did a whole demo. We shouldn't episode. Listen, we should listen we have them. Oh my God. We did the download blog a whole reaction sewed just about our any grams. I'm a two with three in your three with a two, which is really interesting. And basically the two is like you are just always trying to please everybody. And you put everybody else before yourself, and it's a personality test. I could I see how it can kind of sound like astrology and stuff, but it's not it's more of a personality based tooling. He though mine was spa hers. Yeah. So she's a three with the wing of a two and three is your an overachiever. And you're just always working really, really hard. Like, oh my God. This makes me feel so much better about my liars such a three with the two you're such an achiever with a wing of a helper. And I'm such a helper with the wing of an achiever. But it's interesting how it makes sense because even with like, the podcast, even planning it and coming out with it. We were both very three very over cheating and working in bogus. And then there's times rice held both of our twos. Come out. Oh my God. How people in like. Yeah vulnerable. Oh, I did not L. My god. It's time every time. I think about I'm so mind blown also what was a little nerve wracking as what is when you read what your insecurities are to what it says, you know, a threes insecurities. And I was like, oh, my God, you feel you feel attacked like mood. I'm gonna go. Thanks, but no, thanks. It's so true. But that's my my I guess something that I do like about myself. And again, it does bite me in the ass. Sometimes. But it is worth it to me. And I love that about myself because that's another thing. I think that you can't be taught. It's just a natural. You guys we have fab medics as another sponsor. We are obsessed with them. We are fingerling that they keep wanting to work with the I love them. So I always talk about their high waisted powerhold leggings seven eighths links. Are m they're amazing. But also, I love them because they have the cutest nitty tops. Which is like if anybody knows that got cropped up at a little longer. And I'm obsessed with it. You feel so much more comfortable when you're working out in yet is not just a broad like a tank top. It's like a built-in brought up especially days, where I'm not feeling like, you know, the best I'm a little bloated. Maybe eight some pizza the night before they are so cute still to work out in. So it's really fun because you get to go online and take this pop quiz for a personalized outfit recommendations, and what's really cool as you can say what you want. So if you're into the seven eighths leggings, then it'll recommend that for you. And that way, it's really personalized and totally on point for you.

Shipping is available and there's absolutely no commitment when you purchase your first order, fab, buttocks dot com slash basic. Okay. Something that you wish you could change. I feel like there's a lot. No me too. I'm trying to think of like, the number one of the first things that comes to my mind. I hope people don't take the wrong way is I feel like actually no I feel like a lot of people could probably relate to this. Sometimes when I'm like not in a good head space. And I'm already feeling doubt about myself and someone does something super successful. It's not that. I am not happy for them. I think I just turn it around on me. And I'm like what why am I not doing something like that? Yeah. We're I just wanna be I am so happy for them. It's not like a oh my God. I'm jealous of you think. It's a I'm so happy for you. But then I take personally, and I'm like what's wrong with me. What can I do better? And I'm like, why can't it just be thinking happy for the person? I've never I know you do that. But I've never thought about it. And and it's it's definitely like a handful of times. But when I'm in the head space. I can so see it, and I feel it and I'm just like dang like it's something. And it's it's part of one of the three. Yeah. It's something with. Three. What can I do batter? It's that feeling of feeling Avowing outta one. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So I love so deep already I less. I I like I knew you were like that obviously. Because I know you to say it, I I'm interested. I'm impressed that you are able to say that out loud. Oh, no. Yeah. It's definitely like, and that's what I was. I don't want people to take wrong thinking that like I'm never happy for people because it's not the case at all. But I think that's a good way we balance each other. Because you're so just like that like, you are I don't know you're so. Like uplifting to other people and like you would do anything for them. And then there's times where I'm like, oh, I need a tap into that side of me more because I know that there. Yeah. But I think what's funny is seeing that conflict of wanting to be so so so so happy, but then also feeling personally like attack to myself like why like what am I doing wrong? What can I do better? I'm well, you know, what I mean completely. But on the other side to being literal complete opposites where like yin and Yang. There are times where I mean it again, I put everybody else before me. And there are times when you're like, no you need to put all my God. I need to talk about the birthday gift. She got me. I don't cry often. And I like was literally tearing up basically Loesch made the nicest card ever, and basically talked about how I am. I don't like to my own Hornets. They'll wear to talk about but how I I need to put myself I and I need to take care of myself because I take care of everybody else. And she made me this like huge kit of just fifty. Thousand different things to take care of myself. Like, I've been really wanting an apple watch. So she got me one to take care of my health, and she got me, a little Tito's bottles and take care of my soul and just like a bunch of really cute things. And it was so sweet of you on my God. Yeah. Love that for us. It was filmed. It's funny. But I had I had such would make like right in the little cards and say was so thought it was by far the most thoughtful gift I've ever it was so funny you reading the card though, because there I cry when people Christ I was sitting there like tearing up in trying and then every time he'd be like oh. Every sentence. But I know you met every sentence. No you did. And that's what. Hurts the most. I really do want to karaoke session. If we've got Mike's in front of us, don't you have those karaoke things that you ordered? Oh, yes. On a quarter. I brought him to the office. So we can do it to respect we shouldn't. Yeah. Thank god. Have to watch my voice, anyways, something you don't like about yourself. Okay. I think the one thing one biggest like to improve improve. Yeah. I I it's weird because it's something that I'm really proud of. But also, I do know I could work on it is that I am ridiculously independent to the point where it it stresses other people out, I know, and especially like when I've tried to date before it's definitely not gone as well because I just I do everything on my own. But I think it has to do with the fact that first of all, I'm I've self self sufficient, and I have been since I was like eighteen nineteen. So that already taught me to be mature and to take care of myself. And then also, I think I don't know just match. I like doing things on my own. I like something I need to work on for sure is like I've said it before. And like a good way of just like I don't do what I don't want to do. But also, that's like my stubbornness definitely something I need to work on because even something like getting into a relationship one day. I have all my guy friends all the time. Tommy like, you need to like let guys like help you sometimes because I'll be like struggling with like fifty boxes, and they're like, let me help you. And I'm like, no, I'm finally got it. And I'm like falling over there. Like you. It's okay. Like ask for help. And I'm like, no, I got it. Because I think I need that's the three I need the validation of I did for my all my God. So there are so many times like that. So that's on the Anita work on and something I was talking to about my friend the other day, actually. And we wanted to talk about dating a little bit in this episode. And you we talked about our types either day. He's loved I loved that episode. I was actually listening. I was like laughing because I thought it was just funny. Here's here's a joke on Twitter because every single week. I say that it's my new favorite episode. Everyone's like, okay lows. But that's good. We're just getting better and better. I just feel more comfortable every week. But it's something that I I've thought about. Unleash and I had this conversation last night. We're like we need to save it for the podcast. I like sat down. I do this thing where I tell her, and I'm like, I have some whether it's very serious or not I make the moment. Very serious. Like, I have to tell you something. And I like made it very quiet. I sat down I was like you to realize since today's Valentine's Day. I was like you do realize one day one of us is going to have like someone's going to interpretation ship. I and I was like I have this talk with myself the night before alone. I was like it's gonna be her ram. You're gonna be okay. You're going to have to get through this. It's going to be fine. We're so happy for her. But you're going to have to do this alone. I literally I feel like you're going to be in a relationship. I I don't I think everyone thinks, but I feel like someone like God the universe is gonna throw a curveball and you're going to be wiped up, and I'm going to be like. Oh my God. I don't even wanna like literally the other day. We were just telling each other. We're so happy that we're not in relationships. And I think I single people to admit that like that's kind of a lot. It's that was huge for. Are you kidding? Like, my whole life thing. Like, I need to be in a relationship. And I told her the last night. I was like, you know, what it's going to be you I and I'm first of all I'm so happy for you already. That's happened. Mentally, like, there's no one else that deserves it more. By also said I was like, you know, it's going to be you is because God the universe again. Whatever you believe in. I have to cover all the basis when I say that I feel like for you like you obviously you deserve at your so grey. And I want the best for you for me. It's like, you know, it's been twenty four years. What's few more? What's another seven more just tack on there? I feel like I'm chilling. I'm fine. Now, you're chilling. We're happy we are like I texted her the other night. I was just like I just want you to know. I I so long was like I need a boyfriend. I feel like I need a boyfriend are just a date seven hundred just like date any guy on the couch to anybody. But I realized we would not be where we are. If had either of us had a relationship during the time of our peak friendship. So I think that it really happened for a reason, and we also keep saying that you want again to relationship with someone that's gonna make you a better person. And she makes me a better person. It literally quarterly beets. Are we should make a pact? Let's make a pact right now. A kind of power by forty. It will just get married. Club only. We we how many more years. No, no. They'll be they'll be here. They'll be here. They'll be. She's crying. No, no, no. They're five this year. And you'll be forty in thirteen years of they'll be eighteen Shitsu can live till they're like getting on a good for good. Literally cry in credit anything. We're good. Anyways. Okay. Okay. Well, back to my revelation that I had all right? First of all. Yeah. We're in love with each other. We're probably going to get married a leash. But also something that I like worry about is the fact that I'm so independent, and because I have been single for twenty four years, I've grown to be very independent. And so I have a friend who just got into a relationship after being single. I think five years, and so she now is having this struggle of she's with her boyfriend, and she know the boyfriend like wants to do things I'm like just have a normal relationship and she's struggling because she's like I've been single for so long. I don't remember how to be in a relationship on remember how to share my life with someone. That's that's going to be neat. Twenty four years. Like, I don't know how to function with anybody else. Other than daisy. It's a lot. It's I don't like it's gonna be you're right. She she does struggle. Sometimes. Biggles stubborn learn he'll be a learning brat. So we're just not meant to tackle that yet. They'll come into. Exactly, that's why we're still single. I'm still working on being less stubborn alone. But it's gonna be interesting to eventually find someone and is like little things with like only eat here eight here. And you're like, no, I would so be like, no sorry. I'm gonna go by myself. Then that's that's what I would do. Which is so bad. But we'll cross that bridge you've gotten a lot better since like a year ago. But that's only sleep because of you because I'm not even kidding. I was really stubborn this one time like really really really bad like really bad, and she was like ram. I mean, we know you I was being such a brat. She's like, we know you. I mean, this is just how you are. And I was like oh my God. I didn't even realize like that's how I am. Oh, and so you said that since then I've been trying really hard. I have been trying to compromise more. But it's hard for me. You. That makes you you. Anyways thing that was good. I like how our games can be anything from something. They could be any like they're not even a game. Sometimes they're just question conversation. We should have a name for our game. It's time for blink. We'll just throw. So you like stare at mealy aid. REM like, no, okay. We can just. I thought the game idea was so good. I was I thought about a jingle, and then I almost threw out. So I had.

I recently on Twitter saw this thing where it said like the worst people. I ever saw anything like that. And I was like that's so funny. I it really just comes down to like who, you know, because I would never think that, but like myself Oprah and Eleanor all querying check all. Apparently occurs. Very philanthropic. And they're just really chill. I mean, I don't know. I I'm not chill. Shoot anything anything? I mean. I'm I I really thought it was a chil- anyways. Okay. I wanna know. What's the dumbest thing you've done for a guy? This is like whether you did something actually stupid like when his attention just like in general, you're like, wow. That was like really stupid of me. I want you to go first. And I'll go me. Okay. Well, I have to I think perfect tied stories that are both, you know, one of them. I don't think you know, the other actually my no the other one. Let's go ready. Should I start with the wall? Or should I start with the other one? I don't know the other one. So the wall the wall on like, okay? If it's the infamous will I know this is just also preface I realized because I was thinking I was like you've doubt from here. I don't think I embarrassed that often. I look very low embarrassment gauge. Yeah, exactly reminds really high exactly balance by some guys there are so many times she'll like do something something recently this past weekend. Oh, this so many things. I'm like, are you sure you wanna do that? I'm just like. I'm like, are you sure I would never. She was also correct in this. Most times. Yeah, she is. But you live life a little more. Sometimes you gotta live a little live love laugh life anyways. So this story, I I would put it if I had, you know, normal embarrassment gauge pretty pretty high up there. I would be mortified I'm not bothered by at all. And I didn't even find it embarrassing. I saw her the morning that it happened. And I told her. Like. I don't think I was even laughing I'm more. So I was just like this happened. Just because your morning, I was like well this happen. And you're like, oh my God. And I was like what? And she's like, that's the most embarrassing thing. I've ever heard. I was like, oh, should I be embarrassed? I thought it was like a normal Tuesday. Anyways. Basically, I was seeing this guy for a while. And I was like so into him. And you know, when you're like so into someone you don't wanna do anything that could possibly like mess it up at all. And so I was at his house. And then I we were going to train that morning. This was only the first and this is so long ago, the first one that was a ruby rose. This is like a year ago. Maybe and so I I have to I spent the night and I woke up, and we were training at like seven in we and this guy live far so too. I like four five I woke up so early and I woke up, and I like changed, and I think I was about to leave at a town the next day. I think we were going on a trip all my God bet we were going on that New York trip. No way on my all the listeners now. No. I think it was the New York trip. I think it I think it was if you think about the time line of like post, Coachella and then New York. Okay. So we are about to. I think I was about to leave. And so I woke up extra early because I was gonna go meet leash at the gym. And then I changed. I remember thinking like I'm going to be so nice. I'm not gonna wake them up. I'm gonna be like wifey goals. Not be like not disturb. Anyone? I get up. It's like pitch black at the lights on put my clothes on to like for the gym. And then I leave. Oh, no such a good story. So I leave no pot. I leave the house. So how does houses laid out he is two roommates? So how is has laid out like a square, and then if you walk in the door, it's like a long hallway, and then there's three rooms there's two on the left and one on the right and his room was back left room. And so I like close the door and being so quiet. So considerate of me. And I walk out the door, and I remember like the front door. I wasn't sure if I should lock it or not. But I was like, oh, I'm gonna be considered again. I'm gonna lock the door. Just like everybody safe. It's good. So I like a little like knobby. So you I would make sure everyone's okay, making sure nothing's going to happen. And then 'cause you know, if anything happens, and it's on me too. It's my fault. Like, let's say someone broken in the house, they're like who left the door unlocked. Then he really would. Open the door, and I like it closed. I remember, I lock it. And I get my car, and I was like okay perfect on time. You got this ram? You're gonna kill it a good day. And I like pull out my phone elect- try to pull up my phone to look at the time arts directions, actually because I'm the most directionally challenged person ever like you wouldn't have been able to drive. I wouldn't have been able to go down to I would have driven like into someone's house. I'm so bad at directions. So I like go to my phone. I'm like, oh my God. And I realize I left my phone in his room on the whole time. It's like maybe five. And so I'm like, oh my God. I remember sitting there like what do I do on us navy? I can get into the making at home without my phone. But then I realized we're going out of town the next morning, I need. I would have just left it and got it later in a widened. But we were leaving maybe leaving that day because I feel like I could have left it at night. I don't know why. But either way I had to get it back for some reason. I could have I could've found the freeway or I could have just like gone to a gas Asian call him like if it was that bad. I would or would have done that some say I like talking about it. I remember exactly where I was like what can we do? We do like I I could go to the front door and bang on the door. But then his roommates will make up and then the roommates will hate me. And then I'll lose every chance at this goes through every girls had I feel like every possibility I would've thought of a million different scenario. Yeah. Oh my God. Wait now. I remember I'm sorry to backtrack story. I wasn't in my gym clothes. I had I had to go home. That's why left so early. I was wearing a skirt and not even a crop top. You know, those like tops that have the ties in the middle. A not top you guys. I have huge boobs. One wrong move. One of those and it's a complete three for all. So I was like trying to keep it all in freaking out. I can't go to the front door. So I get the car, and I like walk my way around. I think he lived in a duplex to a duplex. When it's like two stories, but they're only on one story kind of thing. Yeah. Yeah. So he lived in a duplex. But they're on the first floor. So thank God. Oh my God. I wouldn't have been able to picture like a second floor. No. The first store I floor. Oh, wow. Okay. So much of this whole bushel interesting now. So I go to the front of the house, and I'm looking and I'm like, all right? What are my options are my options? And so I like basically on the side of the house. You know, how there's like walls in between houses, obviously, it's meighbourhood. It was like acute neighborhood. I like see that. There is there's a cement wall on the side of his house and a first of all there's a gate on the side and the gate leads to the basically there are two rooms on the left hand side. So like, the first room was his roommate, and then the backroom was him. So the front room window was exposed. So he's in the back. He's back into it. Literally his back window is in between the two gates try to unlock the first gay and literally the first Renault is like before the gate, so if he had lived in that front room, I would have been golden would have been fine, but a bust emission. So I try to unlock the gate can't do that. And so I'm trying to figure out what I can do. And then I look, and I see this concrete wall. And I see there's like, basically it's like like a three foot. First, and then a jumps up to like a twelve foot wall. After that. I'm not even making up twelve feet. I think it lose maybe ten ten to twelve. We know you're though, so. Yeah. The. So I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. It was ten feet high. God. So basically, it's like six my agile at six four. Hello nice to meet you. So I get up on like the little wall. So I can't get over. I can't open the gate. So I was like, okay. Like, the only way I can get to the window. And basically my game plan was to get his windows a bang on his only way him up without waking up the roommates because they didn't want his roommates. And like, he he he'll get over it. So I make my way up on little three football thing. And then I jump onto the gate which then climb up and sit myself onto the cement wall. Also. So now, I'm like ten twelve feet up in the air just sitting on this like fence like the cement cement one. Yeah. And which is maybe like a foot diameter. So I don't have much room also side. No, I am terrified of heights hair afraid of heights as well as an assault in a skirt and a wrap top. And so I'm like sitting there, and I was like I could stand in walk. But I like. So if I I'm not getting fell over I would have cracked my head open. I'm not trading. So then I start any no like cement ever like the drywall poking little dots. So my was hurting. And so I'm like literally like lifting myself up and scooting myself twenty five feet, please tell me they have security cameras. My god. I never asked. Can we go for that far back if we were to contact? Yeah. No. I think. A few months testing it. Have logged I should've loved nobody. He's my phone. My phone. So I'm scooting myself down literally twenty five inch by inch by inch by Finally, I make it my all the way down to his window. And I have to somehow get off the wall. I don't remember. I think I must have blacked out. I don't know if I like the other fence and jump down or if I like just down, but I made it scrape up like you're near anything. Now, I made it out alive with. No. And then oh my God. I didn't even mention what shoes actually maybe this helped me out. I was wearing my platform shoes to the like the flat platform heels. That helped me a little bit probably gave me a few inches. So I jumped down whether I jumped off the fence on the other side or I just jumped on I don't remember. And I go up to the window. And I look and he's just like sleeping soundly eighty. The window when Don thanks for being right out of the coach was on hotel. And I'm banging is just like watch him like look terrified, and I felt so bad. And what else are you gonna do? I need in my phone. So I like he like wakes he like. Sits up so fast looks over at the obviously like half asleep still and I'm just like sitting there smiling. I was like hi, I wanna know what he was thinking in that moment. Probably thought I was gonna kill him or something and over probably we so confused be so triggered. Yeah. I'd be so that would tear. I know I feel really bad actually have nightmares. Veasley saying, I'm really sorry. I didn't scare you. And then he came over to the window and was like, what are you doing? And I was like can you get my phone? It's on the other side of the bed was like what I was like. Okay. And then then I scaled up the other side of the fence just walked through the house as I couldn't. There's no way you couldn't cross window. I didn't think about that. Maybe the window. Could I don't know? I didn't I got that. I'm. My way back down got my phone, and then I left and then I saw you at the gym. How was your morning? Oh, I forgot my phone. So I had to like scale a wall. And then get it. I'm sorry. What else like anyways? So deadly. My guy that I'm not embarrassed by that. I just think that is a really die would've been humiliated. Literally fun. I thought it was funny. She's still I'm still fine. That's a great story. Sit amazing story. That's like a movie moment. It's a movie moment. Like, I could see that whole that that could be a scene. God. If I watched a movie I'd be like, oh, that's so sucky for you girl. Now, we're all living. We're my God. Okay. We love our glass cosmetic. I'm obsessed actually cleaned out.

Taking him back after being cheated on. I. I told you I wouldn't scream. I didn't know. I've done for God. I didn't know we were going. No, no, hold on. Let me I didn't know we were going there. I got laid outgrow for this to everybody who was wondering in your video where reacted. Okay. Yes. And I go into this. I went to just out. Everybody asked. Well, any the video where I reacted to your ex boyfriend tag. We did have on her channel right acted reacted to it. I said I was like oh my God. It's so weird like knowing everything that all so many comments were like, oh my God ram. Spill the teeth -bility said t obviously I wasn't going to fill it. I live go. Sorry faces so high. No. Yeah. You're like, oh, we should talk about stoop. Dumbest things we've ever done for a guy. And I was like, honestly, I can't think of too much. I don't like scale walls and stuff because I would be mortified at that thought. And then literally like that just popped into my head knows. We're going with it. I love that. You're talking about it. Do you wanna do you wanna go into it or we like leaving there? No. I mean, that's why I was like this come conversation 'cause there's not much of a story to rally like, I mean, whatever. But yeah, I was just like y'all at Lisa like, dear Greg doing it. Kind of really. Yeah. I mean. I'm trying to think if that were to have any right now what I would say if you know what I mean, it's one of those situations where it's like. I think. This is a conversation. I. I think that if it were to happen to you right now. I would I would fully let you do whatever you want to do because I do believe that everyone needs to do their own thing. And whether I tell you to or not you're going to do it. So I feel like I would just let you, but I would be very open about my feelings, and I would not be nice to him. That's for sure I'd probably send him some pretty tower main. When you're you're your mighty. Fine need to and I wouldn't be I would not be nice to him at all. But I will let you do it. But also make it very aware that I was not supportive of the decision. But I'm support of view. I think that is something we're looking back. Like, I can see how could have grown a lot of being like, no, I deserve better. But the not doing that lay needed. Let me you name me completely. I think I think you needed to do it. And you wouldn't be here. If you didn't do it how how did your friends react back in the day? When you did it. Everyone was like he was such a good guy who messed up, and I know that's like a terrible thing. I remember being like, oh, okay. And like, I don't know. Like, I think I think I say excuse is also I think I downplayed it so much also because of that like like, I don't know down pleaded alive really looking back like even like a year or two later. I was just like the head. I think it's because you had feelings when it was happening. So that like totally distorts I think it's kind of like an ego thing of acting like kinda don't care. Man. I was like whatever like. I should care. The good guy thinks throws me for such a loop. I'm not at Ted Bundy anyway shape, before my I'm not I'm not I'm sure your guy was is still great guy. I just watched the Ted Bundy movie when I went to Sundance, and the I didn't know much about him too. Points. It's the one where Zaka Ron plays Ted Bundy. And there's a lot of controversy around it because they really romanticized him. They share more so about like his personal life showing that serial killers do have obviously personalized and like the history was really interesting. But at the whole movie, I was like, I have no remorse for him over. He's a disgusting person. And at the end, though, I won't give away the movie, but also it's you know, we all know how fast password thirty seconds of I really not giving away. But at the end, he literally says, he looks someone straight in the eyes. And goes, I'm a good guy. I'm a gun. I was like. This is just allusion. All now, this point get so many something we've kind of talked about a little bit before. And I think it's so interesting because you know, everyone says like oh just be a good person in life, and that's your goal. But like there's very few people. Who'd be like. Yeah. I'm not a good person. Like, everyone for the most part thinks they're good person. Even when they Chee or even when they like murders. Like, yeah. It's like it's it's kind of like my like, it messes. But also like watching that movie. I was like what the heck I was. So like, no, you're not a good guy. Also being pathetic. I a Keates truly so mentally ill that he fully convinced himself that he still is a good person. Even though he did all these things. So I was like so shook between the two different movies do that. Because there's so many movies, even like even a movie such as breaking or show like breaking bad, or you know, where you're rooting for the villain. Yeah. You don't watch much movies, but people listening, I know you. Yeah. I had. No, you're rooting for them to run from the cops. And like that you're rooting for the it's so interesting how you realize it's just like, I don't it's crazy. I was not comparing her Ted Bundy. Anyway, a formless Famer just reiterate that but there's been so many guys are like I'm a good guy to me after they've done like really crappy stuff crop it yet. But I believe they are good guy until you get out of it. And you're like, oh and Galway was actually such a dick move. I forget if I've talked about this before. But this is something that I heard this, quote or analogy or term or whatever, quote, I think whatever forever ago, and it really stuck with me. And it was saying how you judge others off their actions, but people judge themselves off their intentions. Oh is that not like chills worthy because if you too I don't know if you were example, I'm thinking of it in a sense of for me. There have been times where all on up to it. I did something bad and I heard. Friend. But I know my intentions weren't to hurt them. So I don't even recognize it. I'm hurting them because I'm like, no, no. That's what I meant. But they're like will you hurt me? And it to finally be like, oh, well, even that's what I intended to do it happened. Yeah. So it makes it literally makes so much sense. To me. It's actually helps a lot of scenarios too. Because I understand how someone can truly only see their side of Noel that was my intention. They see their intentions at they can justify actions that way at the same way that I do. I'm like, oh, I didn't mean it that way, you know, my character. But then in black and white by the end of the day. Did something happen where I hurt someone's feelings. Probably that has helped me so much so true crazy. Wow. I feel like we really went and a full circle with that. Yeah. Being empathetic and justify people's actions. Why didn't even mean to we started off? Oh my God. I love. Well. So yeah, that was one of the dumbest things I've done that was funny anyways that was deep though. I know I wasn't. I wasn't that was that was so much better than me scaling. I was in the shower. And I was like sure I love that. I want to hear your last one because he said yet another one. Okay, this one it's not it's cringe-worthy. I thought it was funny, and it's actually about bubble. Boy. Oh, I do like, you know, this I close friends just came out on Instagram. Also, let me preface by saying I am notorious for once a guy like outta my life. I like block I do the on block thing on block thing. But I'd like to lead their number. I on vol off people do about that. Can I say that way if you block someone and then unblock them it makes both of you stop following each other talking about their phone number? But yet oh talking about Instagram. So I'm I'm assuming most people do that. But I feel like there's some people who have no idea. So if you ever wanted to be like, oh, my God incident must have been followed us. We did that to him. I forgot I did that I was thinking about that totally go. Well, yeah, you can do that. And if you need a little, you know, excuse just blaming algorithms L your. I wasn't talking to him anymore. But then I like we started talking a little bit no-no. Okay. So this guy in particular, we like how to thing. And then we just stop talking because I stopped. I kinda ghosted which I've talked about a little bit in the past. But anyways, then we started reform each other again, but I didn't like text him, and it was just all through Instagram. And then I started a close friend list on Instagram, which is like when you can basically Instagram launched this new thing where you can basically like put your stories just for like close friends to walk. So for us at first, I just did just people that I know in real life people whether I've met because I'm not posting absurd things on there. It's just like, oh like, I just want people like that. I actually know to see whether it's person that I you know, an fronts with or whatever also being influenced one of the small downside. Sometimes is a lot of people are like, oh, you don't you can't see who sees your story. And we're like, no genuinely can't really see so close friends another nice. Just to be able to see which of your actual friends in real life. Can see your story. Exactly. Or I like to like if I'm working on a project for stuff, I love most on there. So like, my close friends can see what I'm doing if I'm not allowed to share yet people you trust. Exactly. So I I won't put I had the list going who are people that. I just like, oh like, no them in real life. So I'm gonna just do this. And so like literally like normal instrument for someone who's not an influence. I feel like that's what it was. So this is around the time of our big bear trip. We went to big bear. And we drove back from. I think when I went skiing one day, and we came back, and I had a text from a random number. I was posting close friends of skiing and stuff like in the sound like falling. It was funny. And then I got a text from a random number that just said, oh, like, I'm really honored to be on your close friends. Well, okay. So you're you're out. So I got a random number text. And I was like what is this? And so then I go through my close friends, and at this point, then I got like see who viewed it, and I go through who've you'd it, and it's like twenty people as of now, and it was like eighteen people that I know like my best friends. And then there was this one girl. Was a girl that we met through our friend, Murph. And she's really sweet Rachel. She's really really sweet. And I put her on there because I really liked her. And it was her and it was bumble boy. But I don't have Rachel's phone number. So I was like it could be a bummer boy or it could be Rachel. And so do you remember God of the car? And I was like oh my God. And I got him. I don't remember hearing that you have that text by never we never talked about it again. Oh, okay. Yeah. So I was like who could it be? So I was like it's literally fifty fifty as as of now, I know I have eighteen other people's phone numbers. I don't have these two. So then we started chatting, and I I didn't want to ask because I didn't want to be rude. We'll also you don't want to get it wrong. Like get actually. Oh, raw guy wants grill. You don't want to say the wrong one guy that I like how to fling with and one is a girl that I talked to like. I really like this. She's cool. So I was just like carrying the conversation. They're like, oh, we should meet up. Okay. So we get back from and we make plans to heart. You had no idea which one. Like a month ago? Why haven't I heard about this? And so to the bar, and I was like, I think I really cut this one in on my own. I was just like I'm gonna deal with this. I forgot it. I never told you so I like the bar park outside. And I was like all right. This is a fifty fifty chance I could walk in. And it's going to be Rachel or it's gonna be bumbled. I. And then the door opens late going on. I'm running late. Sorry. Please. Don't they're like, oh, I don't hate you. And I was like, oh, okay. Still don't not like anybody could say that. And so like park the car, and I'm like here, we go and like walk in and I like looker out, and it's like this like dive bar kind of thing. And I was like, I don't know. And I'm like looking around look around. And then I see him at the. Me being the I walked up. I was chill dude. What's up, and then I had to tell you something funny. I didn't know if it was going to be your girl to max. I loved it. And then I told him I deleted his number. So then I put his name and Mike phone and now, it's an iphone. I totally understand the deleting the number because it's like, okay, gone. But I feel like there's always situations that come up later where you almost wish you had the number still. So usually like leave that I mean, that's smart anyways that will die. Never told me that funny though. Right. That's hilarious. He loved it too. It's all good the other day. He made a joke of somebody's listening summer was right before Christmas. 'cause he was like I'll see. I'm sorry is having our third fight. Oh my God. Anyways, dang. Well. This is a fun episode.

Just those little shout tour nobody can see my vanna white Emotion showing how they're good guys. They're good yeah. Yeah so. I was gonna say. Yeah we've gotten to know matt through the Through district yard producers beta program in You know mad is an amazing guy. Really glad that He could join us today. Thank you so much really pleasure. I can think of a better way of starting my morning. By the way we gotta get a copy of that background you have. I mean. I think that's a that would make a great zoom background great Live video background. People that would have green screen. So i like that could get get out. I'm shooting into the corner. So i i live in manhattan so naturally my wife and i are both working out of our seven hundred square foot apartment. Which means if. I turn my camera two degrees to the left. You see my bed but we don't want to say that side turned it back again perfectly. Afraid now you're you're seeing the the window the gloomy new york behind me and it's funny when when i did a couple of a couple of these video shows the fourth street near every time i purchased a big green pop up a green screen having the background. And i'm like i'm a guy who's usually behind the camera anyway. So why am i going to set up this green screening and have a background when i'd never normally would have that setup anyway again i'm the guy lurking in the wings of the The virtual curtains so So this is me. I'm not pretending to be someone i'm not. This is me and my little corner of my new york apartment. They say thanks a lot for joining us for this episode of. I'm gonna go kick things off. I mean so. I know i've chatted with you. A new gyms chatted with you. But how did you get started in live streaming. What's your story. what's your background sure. It's definitely not really a linear Move so i started out as a performer. Myself actually I was a magician. From the time i was ten years old. Two time i was in college Literally i would perform remember going home. I went to school up in boston. And i grew up in jersey and i drive home from boston to jersey have performed like four shows every week. Five shows drive right back up and then continue all my classes and It was how. I make my living for many years and coming. You know coming into this. Production world as a performer is very helpful. We could talk a little bit more about that later. But addition performing. I always really loved the production side of things When i was in high school. I produced these two very large benefit shows that might my schools new cedar Both shows very fortunately sold out. We raised about thirty thousand dollars for children's hospital philadelphia so as really big victory for me and not only did they get to perform host the shows and they featured magicians from across the world from las vegas From the crucial performer. People real pros. Who lead the industry. I also you know learned how to how to sell take it's how to market how to You know create a brand. That people really could trust so the second year when we did the show. We sold out a month's time rather than six months time so i really loved production. I loved magic. And i went to school for business and then after that i went right to work on a television show as the magic producer for true. Tv's the carbonaro effect in the carbonaro. Effect is a hidden camera magic show. It's run five seasons over a hundred and fifteen episodes on tv and that allowed me to combine both of my loves the magic and also production and that was a very successful show we we also toward with a live version of that show so i was the stage manager and producer of that that show up until march when all of live got cancelled so literally march middle marquez. Get calls that all of my work for the rest of the year was just completely getting shut down. There's no more live tore. There's no more television show for the time being an instantly. You know my near pretty well set up career of running this this entire operation just came to a screeching halt and It was definitely frightening as it was for many of us and was really sure what to do next. and then i was watching A benefit show which It was the rosie o'donnell show that they re personally live version on stream yard and that was for believed the actress fund. It was a benefit March or april. And i was just so blown away with their ability to like to produce a professional stream of famous actors and singers and other Remm celebrities they throw into the mix and i sat like with my jaw open thinking. This is amazing. The fact that we can accomplish this in this new virtual world and the rest is history. I mean the next day. I went right into just learning everything i could about. Not only street mirror but had a produce Great solid well blended at high highly professional streams in zoom and webex and other platforms and sits marched since that one catalyst of watching that show I'm now at over two hundred and fifty of these events for all sorts of companies and organizations and celebrities and public figures. It's been it's been interesting to say the least if you were to tell me This time last year that i'd be sitting at my desk last year i flew a one hundred flights. Exactly december thirty first one hundred late on the road over three hundred days. Now saying you don't really need a stay at home a little bit more next year. Well i got my wish. So i never would have believed you. If if you told me that i'd be just doing everything from my. You know the corner of my new york apartment but here we are. Yeah it's it's really interesting. Because i know for me too. That's when i really went from being in front of the camera. Which i still a lot in christian i also do His show social chatter But being behind the camera so to speak from my proverbial basement. it's amazing. what this technology. Let's stu you've got an amazing background And so why and so. I think this is where you're really qualified to talk about this. Why is picking the right music still important for your livestreams. Sure thank you yes. So here's here's where we're at currently so there's a lot of great ways to produce great streams that are engaging in this new virtual world. The problem is most people still aren't doing that so we're left with you. Know we're left with this condition where we're just all so Saturated with three restoring ed screens on with meetings and family get togethers and family. Holidays in lung were laying in bed. Scrolling instagram watching videos of of our favorite influencers. So we're constantly looking at this stuff and it's getting old. I mean zoom fatigue was a real thing back in may and here. We are in nearly december. And it's the problem so the ability to add something that changes up the rhythm of people's day days is very important so they're used to watching talking and listening to talking hearing people talk about them so in order to in performing world. When you're building a stage show it's really important heads and flows so you have the not just the same tonality the entire time of wakes people up it it. It just it gets people gets the juices reenergized. So it's really important to do that. And music is a great way of doing so where just keeps the energy moving along and It just it it it takes from being just a monotonous talking which people just hearing all day as a little bit of Of of levity in some cases excitement in other cases the most poorly just a tone that you get to create with music so when okay so obviously you know picking write music very important. I love the ebbs and flows. You talk about their so. I mean there are times where people shouldn't use music on their livestreams. I mean. are there certain times where you know. Oh well you should use maybe just an interim you know an intro and then continued that throughout your stream and have altro that goes with it or should you have like sound bed. That goes plays throughout seem or. Are there times where you shouldn't use any music. That's those are all great questions. Yes for sure you don't want to overdo it with music. a little. a little goes a long way especially when it's very very delicate right like we're talking and we are the feature so right now if i were to play a song overpower us and he couldn't hear what i was saying. Were you were saying christian. It would be it would degrade the performance not enhanced the performance because i say performance. Because that's my becker the podcast so you. The ability to hear your. Your speaker presenter is above importance below that having a nice music sets the tone for what exactly is going on at the same time is is very helpful so fun example that i always use it. Sounds sounds silly but if you try you'll really see how effective it is just like film video on your phone of of your wife or your husband or child walking to the mailbox right and that's all you need right the walking out to the mailbox to get the mail. If you put a sad slow cinematic song behind that this thing becomes tear jerker i mean if you put it in black and white forget about it. You're you're you've lost your audience but it really can set the tone for just fills in the blanks and paints a story. That video only cannot do you put upbeat peppy music to that now. It's a story of a of you know your daughter going to get the mail excited for package to come and wants to see if it's there and nat music change alone without changing speed. The weights shot or anything else. That music can completely repaint that picture for you. So it's very important. It's very nice if you're talking about something very serious. Music isn't the way to go for talking about something with some comedic levity something a little more upbeat and and comical would really help that It's just a really depends on what the stream is but the run of show is when to use it when not you mentioned a couple of different You know use use case studies. I should say so. There's there's what's called the music bed. Music bed is as music that literally lays underneath. Or i say you lay on top of the music just like you sleep. Innovate and so The music is underneath. You just like beds underneath you when you're sleeping so its music. That's pretty low in the background. You still hear. The music is typically no lyrics. it's looking instrumental. Ambient sound that again crates. That mood as you're talking and that can go. If there's like ireland period is speaking or let's say you're europe demonstrating something or sharing a screen and you just fill it in and just make it a little more interesting. It's a really great Great no. You study for music bed. There's also it's called stinger or stings or some people need him. Bumpers in that can be like up next. We've got a really great guest. It's adam shark tank. But i but i borrow a bow and that's your stinger. You know just a bit of just an energy jolt so again people. Listen to you for ten minutes. You've got a fun. Jingle or sting that comes in maybe weren't throughout the entire show that people are used to that. It's on brand for you. Music great way to establish a brand and stick to it. Maybe it's a sting that you used. Throughout the entire event they'd be at the beginning and the end you've got to prolong jazz insurance altro and it just is it. All together into a nice cohesive package so yeah there's a lot of ways of using it overdoing it is definitely something you don't want do Service just really important to make sure that you're picking music at the right time and making make strategic choices and along those lines to do you think that sometimes People are like you know you hear a lot of times like oh i wanna play all this music. And then they're they're stuff's getting taken down and it's almost like they feel like if they can't have music they're like somehow doomed a-. What are your thoughts on that. Yeah no it's it's very important if you and if you're not aware of i'm glad you brought it up jim because you know you can't just play music that you're not licensed to us. And what is that pretty much everything you've ever heard before i mean if you listen to radio every single track you've ever heard on. The radio is is owned by another entity. A record label or an artist. You know when when you When we used to do our live show in cedars you pay their to organizations. You pay the right. You pay rights to There's as cap in this. Bmi and those organizations essentially pay. These blanket costs covers the Your ability to play tracks in a theater. So currently there's no real way where that translates super well to to live because if you're streaming youtube heavens youtube know that you paid for the rights to iraq harry song in fact there's been funny stories of actual artists to play their own materials. Clearly their licencee in many cases own it and they're streams are getting pulled down because sites like youtube and facebook and pinterest our end What's twitter periscope rather not patriots video yet. That'd be drifts yet you know. Those sites have robo scanners that automatically detect a copy written material whether it's video audio so they can in many cases. Just pull your stream down altogether Because they think you're using it with permission or many cases. A lot of us are trying to monetize streams so they say hey. You're not allowed to make money off of this other person's contents or naturally they pull your stream down and that could be devastating if you're livestream producer or livestream host of your of your own show. Have you strip pulled down as certainly very frightening so you have to do it. The right way and there are quite a few right ways of doing it. So while you can't play again You know whitney houston or lady gaga song because those are obviously owned by their respective record labels. You can't play other types of music there's public domain music and there's royalty free music so public domain music is basically a library of music that known space gates. It's used for us for one thousand. Nine hundred seventeen is the year or anything before that year Songs such as happy birthday for example. Anything was released before that are public domain. So you can use it anywhere. No one owns the rights to this Annual not getting you to would never pull your string down etc so you're surly allowed to do that The wider umbrella a portfolio of music. That you can use 'cause 'cause you're limited with public domain is what's called royalty free music this music that's been created for the sole purpose of being used by content creators. So many cases for all two free doesn't mean that it's free Although there are certain free royalty free websites but royalty free basically means you are allowed to purchase the rights to the news this music and typically purchased the rights. One time now you have access to use the music and while youtube still doesn't know somebody's telling you to have oh match. Schick in new york purchased the rights to the jiffy. Pop one eighty fitches a song. I just created morning. Everyone doesn't know that usually youtube does know. Is that jiffy. Pop eighty is a royalty. Free song that they will fly or poll down so when i buy the rights through a website. And we can talk about websites. I like to use but when you buy the rights to those websites essentially you now get the track and full quality without any audio watermark. And i can use that without being pulled out of my stream so And there are many different sites you can use for that. I mean why is on the time. Just because i do a lot of streaming for people on youtube and i do a lot of ambient music you own a royalty free audio library to just search youtube audio library. There's access to thousands of tracks that are being updated every single day. There's there's literally giant library and the best part about this. You can search by mood by genre. I believe by pace. So if you're really looking for something cinematic and sad you can just literally check the cinematic box If you're looking for something. Ambient and ambient boxers instrumental and. It just really helps you. Hone in on exactly what you're looking for now. This is all free music so some of it is a better than others but It's a really great wealth. It's certainly great spot to start when you're looking for music since it is completely free another site it's used by lana professional. The video editors professional producers even. Tv's projects is a site called pond p. o. n. d. five and pon five as much more premium site. You can purchase songs. Some of them are six dollars. Some of them are two hundred dollars. Depending on what the song is how popular it is. You know what the artists decided that they wanted to sell it for cetera but there are thousands of options on five with really great robust search categories just like i mention with youtube Another website is ben. Sounds dot com. there's tons of out there if you just go to royalty free music websites you can. You can find these giant libraries in your again allowed to use any of this. You buy you pay. One time fee. I'd say an average a fifteen twenty dollars for a royalty. Free track is pretty pretty on par with what you would pay and you have that forever. Now you can add to your own library and now when you're producing two years from now if you've got a library of thirty fifty songs in your computer that you can pull from and reuse again for different street so it's definitely a great great Worthwhile investment yes so now even though you have that though don't you still potentially run into that problem of you own the music just like you said earlier. Have you run into where you've had to go back to whether it's facebook or usually say look we own this music shouldn't have to pull it down And then they reinstate you or has that been a a process. I've never had that issue with royalty free Only with copyright music. You know an and you could tell because when you send somebody to youtube it'll automatically like how often do a test just to make sure there's no issues in advance. So i'll run all the content video and audio through youtube or facebook and see if anything gets flagged and with royalty free. Anything ever getting flagged. Where again if i use anything at all even if it's like four seconds from tv show or something A good example. I worked with that The perform michael carbonaro. I mentioned who has the carbonaro effect the true. Tv's are great buddy of mine. We produce a show together. We were. He's doing a qna for for kids at a local high school at the beginning of the pandemic and he showed one of his clips. And we didn't get removed but afterwards we got a slap on the wrist from youtube. Remind this guy owns this. Content is created this concept but again they don't know that there's no way of writing youtube and telling them that you know your license for there. There are ways. But it's just they're not it's not effective for from normal streamers like give me yeah so again freeze. Been the night savior. I use it all the time now. It's just the it's it's very reliable off. If you're trying to monetize your streams many people are forget about kenny. The reviews a couple of seconds of anything at all. Either have your monetization turned off for suspended again. Your stream could just completely be shut off without any notice which obviously is a tragedy for For people who you know. This is their business what they do so. I just have a couple of quick questions in regards to you. know youtube. You've got a couple us copyright strikes. So i'd say probably people should test at the beginning to make sure they're not going to I mean maybe we'll get a strike at the beginning for example but use that almost as a on lesson to help you moving forward i think and then the other part also that i think is really important. Highly earliest question. I had is so if somebody bought for example royalty free music. They allowed to d- allowed to use that over and over and over or is it a one time use thing typically. It's over and over and over when you buy the rights to royalty free music. There typically dif- different levels of rights. Just like if you were to buy graphic you know you can potentially biographic to use for your news for your own website once you start using that graphic to put on march and sell to other people Then you've got to obviously purchase for much higher enhanced license the same thing with the music typically. There's two or three different versions of just allow for different Different uses you just read contract carefully most of the time however you do buy it and you have the you have the rights to use that wherever you'd like whenever you'd like is just a guess wherever it isn't correct whenever you'd like within the confines of where the where the contracts says you're allowed to so again palm five and ben sounded. Those websites will really clearly spell out type of license you're purchasing and where you are to To use it so one last question for you and it's the fact that you said you know. Hey you tested some of these things before before you publish them. So are there specific tools that you used to do. This does youtube or facebook. Have a tool where you could maybe through it. For example i know they have a debugging tool for example for testing out blog images and seeing what comes up with facebook and so forth but is there any tools for checking the copyright. There may be no of hand. Honestly what i would do. Is you know typically producer for other people again. I'm never the guy on screen. This is rare occurrence for me this morning. So what i typically do is. I'm typically streak to clients youtube or facebook or in many cases corporate and we're going to these big platform slag hop in for temple where there's not even like a platform closed-circuit essentially. So you don't have to worry about these things you're still not allowed to use copyright music but There's no robust candidate does your straight down on the end of those cases so i am going to youtube or facebook. Typically do is you know it's a new client a most of the time anyway or new account rather so once i got everything plugged in and i get my. You know my my broadcast studios Talking to the to the platform essentially it will just tune unlisted private stream and others run through all the assets anyway and this checks two things. It checks my actually stream to their destination with no hiccups or issues and also checks the ability to play the content that you know planning and playing and making sure. There's no issues there. I used to do this all the time. When i started last trimming back in april and may and again once they started using royalty free. There's never any anything. Whatever pop up. So i don't really do too much anymore. It's been pretty reliable for me. Also my clients typically monetize streams. So you know. In in some cases they do insist on using a song that is copyrighted. And i give them the you know. I read them the riot act. I let them know that very likely. Are there stream can be pulled down. Since they're not monetize it we'll get a flag. afterwards it says you has detected copier in content in your stream. For this reason we cannot monetize. Your count is still in good standing. So that's been nice as well. It's still a bit scary. Not knowing when they decided to just pull your stripped down version when they decide to give you kind warning like that so again i recommend all my clients are always go. The royalty free route. Don't like messing around and taking the risk. It's not worth it to. You know to have a couple of lyric something we're familiar with. Typically it's only a few seconds of music anyway. 'cause like we said earlier you don't want to overpower the speaker so Yeah good role. The follow is just to play by the rules. Use royalty free content and and just test everything if you have even the slightest worry that something you have isn't fantastic and as far as picking the right music Just can you give us a quick Summary on that. Like how people go about whether they choose action suspense when to add music and so forth. Exactly yeah it really depends completely stream so if you're doing a A murder mystery show that you're streaming out. That's time when you really want some suspenseful music in the background. Something that's just that makes us feel like if we turn the corner close to discovering who the who the murderer is putting our finger on so it's just it's hard to hard to really sh- like just demonstrated like think about what you're streaming dig about what you want people to feel while you're streaming and then fine music that without you saying anything paints that same picture that same feeling Conveys that same message and now when you add you back into the equation Your accentuating the music and you're just helping tie everything together so just be careful you know. Don't be tone deaf It's it's you know if you're if you're streaming a funeral which i am sure someone out there stream stringent. I'm sorry if you're that person but this is sound like sound like an easy job. Obviously you don't want a peppy upbeat music. In the background of a funeral. I think that would be instantly. The joke of the The funeral business. Yeah you want something more some little slows. Something that You know is very you know. Perhaps some string instruments that just. Isn't you know you don't want on funeral. I'm saying just us what you know you use your used to hearing and commercials. Turn turn the tv on and watch commercials for a few minutes. Every commercial has music behind it. Listen to any pharmaceutical commercial. And they paint this picture of someone who's really suffering through life. There's this slow music. They're really tugs on your heartstrings. Until they found well that's true. Whatever whatever the drug is announced suddenly everything changes the tone completely changed. It takes one eighty music now. More bs faster You know there's color on screen. The subject is smiling. So that's a great example. I'd say look at look at your commercials. See how they do it. And then Trying to emulate what they do by finding music that still some those blacks for you is. Let's drug. I don't even know it. Sounds like sounds like right or make one up right now. This this has been great stuff. Matt so matt what. What's the the best place where our viewers and listeners can connect with you. I know you also offer remote production services for people as well Where where's the best place for them to reach out to you. It's great thanks. jim. Yeah i you know. It's funny that the last few months have just been total whirlwind of this. You know this business. Just kind of exploding for anyone in live production. So i'm a bit behind the eight ball. It'd be honest with you on and like setting up a great platform where people can reach out just because it's been it's kind of a nonstop without it so i'm at the point where you know. My team is expanding. And i'm getting close so for now The best way of reaching out to me is run. My stream dot com That leads to a form where you can feel information about what you're trying to accomplish who your audience is what your event entails. Then i reached right back to you. Immediately we start talking about the best way to utilize my services as a producer and You know bring your your vision to life. Obviously people are people are used to these days like the watching events that are plagued with technical issues or the. We can't hear here please. All sorts of issues produced all day long so the bar for production is pretty low unfortunately for virtual even now we're months into this pandemic were there is no other way of of of communicating through our screen. So i think. I think that you know i offer valued to my clients. Were coming from the world of of the production and also performing in a as a performer. There's a lot of things that you know that you wouldn't ordinarily understand as well if you're just a producer you know when you're on stage and you're introducing the next performer and show that performer. Better be waiting in the wings there. Better be music. That comes in as off whether that walk. Which could be very awkward. Where you cross and shake hands Entrance that blank needs to be filled up so just things like that. Knowing that the next three presenters are on. We see them. We hear them.

E272 Bio Hacks Part 1 | Tips, Tools, & Tricks to Become the Best Version of Yourself

"This is fifteen minutes of freedom. I'm your host ridell. In today's episode is bio- hacks. In today's episode. I wanna share with you a few life tips hacks tricks to give you more energy. Better digestion, a better quality of life, all of which I will take no credit for. So I have started going down the path of a call biohacking, and it's kind of a. Ah term right now that's getting tossed around pretty openly in circles that I run around in. And really, I think it's a misnomer. Right. I believe that what does end up being figuring out how to have a longer life and have more health wellness and wellbeing inside the life that we're living. And so that means biohacking then so be it perfect example is the glasses that I'm wearing right now. Everything we talk about on the show. I don't have any association with rather just things that have made me feel better every day. So many of these were actually found in Dave Aspreys book game changers. If you don't know who Dave aspirin is. He's the founder of bulletproof coffee, bulletproof labs, bulletproof everything at this point. Right. Dave was a Silicon Valley executive that had a fair number of exits underneath his belt and eventually started spending. What most of us would look at his obscene amounts of money to really hack into how to live the best life and not this thing. Like, the hashtag that we were all posting on social media for awhile like live your best life or living my best life like truly Dave's goal is to make it two hundred eighty years old. That's what he's setting his life up for I now and someone's game changers. He releases the top forty six hacks for. People to adopt as a pertains to what has been most often spoken about on his podcast. Bulletproof radio. Now this point. I'm completely plugging Dave based off the fact that I am actually going through a bulletproof training certification. Call the human eye or. Human optimization experience something like that to thirty five week. Master course, ends up getting me an ICF master accreditation. That's international coaching federation it deals with biohacking and mental hacking and everything in between rise the next level of. Enlightenment on my journey to be the absolute best coach I can be. Reading this book. The first thing I pick up these true dark glasses T R U D A R K now. Dave, admittedly, owns a piece of dark. So there's that as he's plugging. But if these aren't the glasses you want there's also Swazis as W A, and I e. My wife is in the studio right now wearing privee revolt. Blue light blocking glasses by David shot and seating and company. Right. Like, these are these are things that are now widely accepted that we are consuming junk light every day. So right, which junk light to great question because I had no idea what it was like zero. And I'm probably going to butcher explaining what this is. But I'm gonna do my best essentially, we have blue light all around us belie being the cell phone screens that we look at all day long blue li- being the halogen lights at our overhead that or even the don't hunt. Right. I've canister lights in my office at of bright white that are are halogen. Maybe it's the computer screens. Maybe it's a cell phone screens. Maybe it's just a general amount of exposure that we get to things that are not natural light sources. What these glasses do with these awkward yellow tint glasses that I wear around. And people ask if their safety glasses construction glasses shooting glasses. What these they block that out? They filtered out. A why is filtering out blue light or junk light important? One word. Sleep. Your sleep matters. And unfortunately, consistent exposure to blue light has been proven to adversely affect circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythm is essential your body's natural progression into out of deep sleep. Maybe heard the term Rhames leap before random I movement. That can be tracked him honored that when you're in your deepest sleep cycles, deeply state in asleep cycle. What happens is with all the blue light that we are exposed to all the time. Our circadian rhythm is getting so far knocked off. If you ever wondered why you can go to bed for eight hours, sleep wake up and just feel completely on rested. Because you rhythms off and not only just dark. Make the blue light blocking glasses with a yellow tint, they'll make a very dark red lens the red lenses to be worn two hours before bed or closer. What that does is really pumps the brakes on your brain operating. As though it's bright outside and light in any capacity and really starts to push you down the path of getting ready for bed sorts to elicit that first step of of sleep. I sure oh this because as I tracked and monitored wearing the next thing I'm gonna share about. I've noticed now a thirty one percent increase in active Remm sleep and a decrease in eruptions and sleep cycle simply by wearing these glasses everyday. Now full share with you people. Look at me like, I'm crazy. I actually like that. It's a conversation starter. And I finally got to the point that I don't really care if someone is judging me, right? If my goal is to stand up and be the best version of myself that I can be not only for myself I but for my family second and then for my clients third. It's going to make me do some things that would not be normal to the average person. Like crazy looking glasses that I also wear at the gym that I also were at the grocery store that I wear literally everywhere, I go other than what I'm a natural light, which has been proven that sunglasses are actually bad for you. You need the natural light exposure to be in sync with your circadian rhythm. And you need the vitamin d from it. Crazy thing of all the things that I have been taught. Maybe you have been taught the same. That are slowing down our life expectancy not making it longer. As a made mention just briefly, I wear a woop W H O P. Now, I've had this whoop for two years now and had not been that diligent with wearing it gotten really diligent in the past six months. What the whoop does? It's a fitness band. It's a fitness tracker at a very base level. Laughingly? My wife has done extensive research says she has worn herself out trying to find the perfect, fitness tracker. She's looked at Garmon, she's looked at fit bids. She's looked at apple watches. She's looked at if you can name something I feel like she's looked at it now bio strap. None of them perform sophisticatedly as to me woop or an oral ring, I believe or ring is a little more catered towards monitoring and tracking sleeping while the whoop is more towards holistic, fitness. The whoop does not have some fancy screen. You look at. There's no display to very light device that has entertained -able straps, right to match outfits or your mood. Let me process something through logically. The apple watch you might have on your wrist right now or the fifth at that. You wear we'll take fifth right now. That you have is one hundred twenty five bucks. The whoop when I bought it retail was five hundred the whoop. Does not have a fitness does have some fancy display if you're an app on your phone? The whoop has been used by. Ultra marathon runners triathletes Olympic athletes. Elite level competitors. All around the globe that how they derive the science behind. How the whoop works? There's a reason why it was so expensive granted with time and scale the prices come down their models, much different. What's happening is you have this? Now ability to have what elite athletes were the only ones have access to for years. We have for monthly continuity. There's a reason why is more expensive than a Fitbit. It is not to knock Fitbit. Maybe you as you're listening aren't avid fit lover. I'll tell you the science and technology in the sophistication of the device that I were on my arm is superior to what the fifth it is. And I can say that with complete confidence. Just like I say about the aura ring. Why do any of these matter? You might be asking why do you wanna wear a fitness tracker? Well for me. How do I know how many calories actually need every day? If I don't know. How many I'm burning? And how do I know what time I should really go to bed of the my natural circadian rhythm. If I don't know how it's going to help me perform the next day. And what about my heart rate variation how much oxygen my blood Sagan the level of stress I'm carrying around. What about hall that stacks up to the people that I'm running around within the same capacity in my state or city? How do I know of good is good? Or if there's better than good is better than great. What is better than excellent until you track and monitor the variables how do you actually know that answer the whoop or the or helps you to really figure that out? But both those costs money, right? The dark glasses. I think I paid one hundred twenty five bucks for two pair. The whoop is gonna cost you whatever cost you twenty bucks a month. Thirty bucks a month. Maybe that's outside your budget. I get it truly. There's been plenty of times in my life where that's been outside my budget as well. Someone offer you a free actually cost-saving way. To live a better life. You're not going to like me for it. So I'm gonna use that as an Astros, and then the side. But the first entry point is a cold shower. Now, this is not mean that you hop in the shower turn the water on blistering cold. I commend you. If that's what you do. But for me, that's not how this has to start. Is he there's might Akande that operate inside of our body essentially little tiny battery cells those mighty conjure carry energy. There's more might Connor body than you have actual cells in your body. They're everywhere. What happens over time these Kander pesky? They don't really die off. They might be like the iphone battery that you have where you I got it, and it would last two days but over period of time, but eventually drops down and barely last six hours. Your mind contradicting the same thing. How everybody country fickle. And when they get exposed to extreme cold. That I off. And what happens it your body has to produce more new ones that have full battery cell charge available. And so to start with what I do what I were commend. If you take your warm shower you wash Harry, do all the normal things you do in the shower. Then you stand facing the the shower head turn the water all the way off. Then barely turn it on just enough that there's full pressure, but it will be the coldest setting possible. Have that water hit you square in the forehead? Trickling down to the front part of your body. Now for the first day. Twenty seconds is going to feel like an eternity and all those might Kander dying off are going to convince you you have to get out that you're going to die get that serious get out for twenty seconds. This is not a battle of will. This is a way to weaponize your body. The second day fall the same protocol, but ten to twenty seconds. Thirty five will feel more normal. By the third day, forty seconds. We'll feel like a breeze and then by that fourth or fifth day a minute is no issue. So when this might a Kandari is dying off and your body's instantly producing new mighty contra you're going to have more energy. You're gonna have more learnt nece can have more or less in your skin. Your skin itself is going to clear up. Your hair is going to be less. Brittle your nails are gonna quicker your body's gonna process in the simulate food more rapidly. There's literally and list benefits to cold showers. Not to mention that. When you spin around and have cold water hit the top part of your back. Right. That part that's just underneath the base of your neck dice have been proven that that area of your body affects the amount of Brown fat or visceral fat that your body contains so in cold water hits that and those might have Hundai specifically quicker your body's forced to process some additional Brown fat, which will increase your metabolic rate, which will increase. Essentially how quickly you can burn off the fat that you have on your body. All from simply spending an extra minute a cold shower in which you're not paying for heated water. Hence, why said it would save you money. Let's say you wanna ratchet this up and take this further on ice bath is kind of the next level of this. Is this something I'm trying my damndest to give my wife we need for our house. She is super against this. Because she knows that I go on these streets liked by bunch of dumb stuff that we don't really need that us for short period of time. And then I stop. This fact could be one of those things. Nice bath ends up being is you find an old deep freezer. Riley, and maybe not too old, but an old old deep freezer. Waterproof deep freezer filling up with water big surprise. I knew turn it on freeze. With that much water in a tank, it doesn't really ever freeze. It just gets super super cold like really cold. And then you slowly some Risher soften there. And let your entire body have the benefits of the cold. This whole methodology mindset was actually brought about at least to the forefront of my mind from guy name Wim Hof w I am a Joe f. Wim Hof has a breathing technique that he teaches that helps not only over oxygen date your blood, which you go to you know, the Wim Hof method. There's an app that's a belief complementary. It might have a small fee associated with it. But at teach you the breathing and teach you the cold shower. But through his breathing and through the way, he's able to control himself. He makes no secret about it being cold sucks. Right. Like this. This isn't eventually get good one day. What happens your body becomes adapted to it? And so when he's immerse yourself in really cold water for extended periods of time, the Newt Rindt blood pool center mass. Protects all your organs. What's keep you alive? Extremities the go numb Tinguely. Right. But the breathing helps keep those safe and healthy. What happens to them when you get out the most nutrient rich blood leaves the center mass and go series with the biggest amounts of trauma. Healing the areas of your body have experienced the most pain. So if you did a cold shower in the morning, or you some Erse yourself in cold water, you would experience less pain have less body fat have more energy have longer and more luscious hair. Have better nail growth. Probably better vision a healthier appetite. All by being cold uncomfortable for short period of time. But maybe those things aren't your thing. Maybe the cold is is not for you. I get those stories tell myself. But what about celery? When's the last time you just picked up a big stock as our interest not on? No peanut butter. No ants on a log nothing. He just sat there and went to town on a piece of salary. You're probably laughing right now. Right. Like, nobody actually does that. We do we. But what I do encourage you to consider is creating celery juice. Unfortunately, juicers almost required as a blender you need a strain and all this other stuff that is really pretty cumbersome, but the average user can be bought for ninety bucks at home goods. And what happens on empty stomach you put an entire bundle or stock or whatever you wanna call celery into the juicer and outcomes roughly twelve to sixteen ounces of celery, juice. Sasol reduce. Right tastes, like salty celery. But what it does is has endless benefits for higher bodies, microbiomes or processing inside your stomach. It's been show now time and time again that our health in our brain. Our body almost has to brain centers, the actual, physical brain. That's in our head the one that you believe you're listening to this episode with. Then also your got and those to work symbiotically. So if the guts, not firing our way, your moods, not as elevators, it could be your cognitive reasoning. Not as sharp. Your member recalls, not a significant, but all sorts when your gut not in your head. What's L, reduce does help flush all that out and make that better more beneficial and helps again increase energy decrease fat cells. I check box after check box after check box, but you have to have this on an empty stomach. Ideally, not eating anything else rather fifteen or twenty minutes afterwards. Which leads me to my next little bio hack. Which is shila shit. S H I L A G I T. Now some naturally occurring. Mineral it's almost like tar comes from a tree somewhere in the world f I tell you what it is. I'm probably going to butcher it. But pretty rare only comes from one part of the world and this little tub. This little almost looks like nail polish. You take a piece is amount of this. You put in warm water new stirred up. Put a specific type of sentiment in with it. And what it does help your body's internal organs process in a different way than the hab before. So it helps your testosterone estrogen access. It helps your metabolism it helped more with gut repair health more with energy with cognitive function with member recall right off from this little tarbey substance. It's super mid mineral rich magnesium, zinc. All types of different things. Now for me that was the path. I started on then I finally got sucked into the bulletproof coffee world. I don't like coffee. Right. Maybe you yourself as you're listening. Hey coffee, makes two of us, my friend. I don't enjoy what I do. Enjoy the health benefits to come along with coffee. If it's created a very specific way. That won't get into all the boring benefits of how bulletproof beans are made in in creative. But there mold free their fungus free, their creative in a very specific, Safeway, they're done for a very specific reason. Oddly enough of the coffee itself is not the benefit the beans are just healthy where the benefit comes from is from adding tablespoon of gay butter, natural organic free range, g butter G, H E. A tablespoon full of brain octane, which is a advanced wait MC oil medium chain Tigris, triglycerides oil. And that I actually poured the Schiller's yet and cinnamon in with those makes it very deluded Cup of coffee. Right. If you're if you're a purist and enthusiasts in the coffee world, probably not for you. I'm the opposite. I'm during the stuff for health benefits, I'm chugging down because I don't like any part of it. So I take it. I'm in with it. That gives you energy that gives you focus that gives you clarity. Again. Maybe there's repented a pattern your hearing. That pattern is also created by creating a series in your life of intermittent fasting periods. I was a bodybuilder. I was convinced. I had every two hours on the hour from morning tonight ahead of twelve meals a day that was my thing. That's the only way I can put on weight and size. When I was scientists caught up in life has become more sophisticated. We realize there's some fallacies that ideal. It's actually a little more healthy for you to take fourteen to sixteen hours off of eating. At least for most of us. And I hear you cringe. How gonna do that? I can't I can't do that. I get it for the first couple of days. It's not super comfortable what I can guarantee. You're not gonna die going sixteen hours without food simply wrap up your final meal by we'll call it seven PM at night. And don't eat again until noon. The next day gives you seven hours to eat as you feel hungry. Have meals at our modern protein, thirty forty maybe fifty grams tons of fiber and all the greens and spectrums of the rainbow. All these things are are created for longevity for overall health. I'm gonna pivot for just a second and talk about the muse. If you've been a longtime listener, you know, the muse has been an active part of what I would encourage you to consider almost the most important meditation tool for those of you that haven't yet meditated you can find it on choose muse dot com. C H O S E M U S E dot com. The new music so sophisticated the series to that it starts to track your heart rate variability the amount of oxygen in your blood the position of your body and helps you realize and what that does is condense down time. The one resource that I don't know how to bio hack right now is time. I don't know how to get more before us. What I do know is if I can take meditation and put into a fifteen minute increment and had that fifty minute increment have more impactful benefit than a forty five minute or hour session that has unguided untrained. That I'm buying back time in my day. And when I buy back time in my day, I feel better plus the meditations more meaningful. Plus, I'm more quiet and centered. I actually combine something like the muse with a C E S machine a cranial electro stem machine. Cranial machine might sound like some medieval contraption something that they would use in the early nineteen forties and fifties torture site patients. I can assure you, it's not. Well, the machine is use something called the David bio aces. What it does it connects to the ear lobes at puts very slight Electra passes in the left ear and the right ear that are oscillating frequencies that are helping more rapidly align the left and right, hemisphere brain. Why this becomes important is now of a sudden you can get into that feta's state much much more quickly. Between the muse consistent, meditation, and this device, I'm able to almost access it within seconds if not minute or two. Not enough to control consolidate time down what I've also done is bought an infrared sauna for our home. Is infrared sauna is nothing that has to be tens of thousands of dollars. Right. You hear Asana night, man. All of those wealthy, folks. Have that? Are infrared sauna was right around two hundred bucks. It was from Amazon it just type in personal infrared zodda, you literally sip sit in it on like a folding sports chair. Use zip yourself into it. It goes up around your neck and helps you sweat out toxins. Impurities? It helps mobilize metabolize fat cells. That couple of Juve red light J O V red light that helps elicit collagen repair. Circumventing these things together. And all of a sudden, you realize human potential in the way that at least I personally had been living for so long. Was so underperformed and underdeveloped. At a future episode. We're going to get into new tropics and how those work and how those fire and what type of water you can use to better benefit yourself. And how to really optimize true. Sleeping patterns different men means of digestion mobilization different ways that can consume oxygen. Yes. The air we breathe there's an optimized way to actually do that as well. What I found in my life is I feel it's almost my responsibility. Now to take my clients down this path that is so much more than just simply working on their brain. Lifetime's ation tests. That's fine. We can get into the the way your brain fires. Why you think what you think we can have meaningful impactful conversations unwinding limiting beliefs creating new healthy habits and processes procedures the coaching practices so much about that. And then scaling who you are. And what you want to achieve? We dial in your business. We dial in the way that you communicate with a higher power. We dial in your relationships. But all those are only so well and good while wanna do is make sure to add years to your life. I'll give you all the things that I know how to do that are going to put you here. So you can serve the planet and serve yourself more than you ever thought. You could. Follow up with that episode tomorrow. For today. If you just take one of these tips, and you do anything with it for long enough. You'll find out the incident response is you're able to get shit done.

And she's the author of books, including committee of sleep and super-normal stimuli and an expert on lucid dreaming, and how dreams contribute to creativity and problem solving. So welcome to the show Dr. Deidra, hi, I'm glad to be here. The reason I wanted to interview today is that you are the editor in chief of the journal dreaming, and you've been the president of the international station for the study of dreams and things like that. And you even make something called dream art. And in the whole history of bulletproof radio. I haven't talked too much about dreaming of couple Chamonix interviews here and there, but so many of the world's top inventors talk about having a dream where they solve the problem. And a lot of people listening to the show today are interested in problem solving or self awareness. And I wanted to just have a real open conversation with you. How did you get into the idea of studying dreaming because it's kind of out there? Well, I I think my situation is probably similar to mystery researchers in that I had very high dream recall as a child, and I think I had more. Vivid wild interesting dreams than average. And so if your own dreams are especially interesting, and you remember them, clearly, I think it's rather automatic to be just fascinated. I mean, everyone has some of that weird parallel world experience remembered, but I think I had more than average. So I think that most people get interested in psychology and go into psychology, and then they pick a specialty well into grad school. But I think I did sort of the opposite that I was just always fascinated by dreams, and as I got to maybe junior high age or so I got that. If people are going to pay me to just think about dreams all the time that I needed to major in psychology good graduates in psychology. So I kinda picked the specialty before I picked the general field. Oh, that's interesting. So it was just a personal interests that drove you to pick becoming a Harvard psychologist just because of so cool even as. A kid. Yes. How do dreams change? I know kids almost live in a dream world. When I look at my kids brainwaves on the Jaquith -ment, and yes, I kids brains. But I you see a lot of fate of state and Goerner babies were almost constantly in in this dream time. And as we become adults are brain shift at what age kids sort of come out of the dream state and start being more where reality and how often do we go into it? When do we lose that if ever well, I mean, they're things going on there one is that they state you're talking about that isn't actually win are full blown dreams occur. But it's definitely a more imaginative imagery related state, and that is that is gradually waning. But the other the more specific thing that's gradually waning. Is that kids? Not only sleep more hours. But a higher percentage of their time is in rapid eye movement sleep when we're actually dreaming late stage. Fetuses have. Most REM time God knows what they're dreaming about. But then babies have the most of any post birth creatures and then toddlers a little Wes and older children little less than that. So it's it's not a sudden of quitted this age. It's it's a very gradual decline that almost plex has in the young adult years. But actually, there's a slight loss of percentage of dream time even throughout the adult life cycle. But it's it's most it's mostly from babyhood to to the start of young adulthood, I'm going to ask you another very strange question here last year, I came down with a brain eating amoeba GI bug. And for for four months. I had like really bad job problems probably figured out. What was going on? I got this from something as dramatic as eating salad in Zona as. Sort of a random thing. But the first week when I had this every night, I would wake up with nightmares. I haven't had a nightmare in fifteen years. Like, I I've done a lot of personal development work. But these are always like like things threatening me threatening my company it just sorta like doom and gloom things that were so out of character for me that I'm I'm absolutely certain that they were correlated with this really bad gut infection that I had have you seen research or have you come across patients where when people have something physically wrong with him. They start having nightmares. Yes. I don't know anything about your particular me, but bacterial infections that raise your fever a fair amount. Definitely make people report were nightmares and probably they're actually having more nightmares because the body is registering things are wrong. But also fever. Simply disturbing sleep. And since you have to wake up to. Remember, a scary dream, you you may simply be remembering more nightmares, but you probably having more also. And then there are other mechanisms viruses trigger a lot of interferon in your body, which again is just kind of telling your body something's wrong. And and you don't necessarily have a fever, but a lot of biochemical things off. So yeah. Lot of infections can cause you to have more nightmares and any number of drugs that you take for those infections also can the forgetting the name of the main the the best modern anti-malarial drug, but it has a lot of side effects, but including daytime extreme anxiety for some people, but it it causes causes dramatic nightmares. So sometimes it's treatment of the infection. Not just the infection. So the the firms who can do that. That I also routinely. Ask people I I'm an expert in toxic mold because I grew up in a basement that had. And filmed a documentary called moldy and for people listening. You haven't heard me talk about it's at moldy movie dot com, and one of the things I'll ask someone who says how do I know if I mold my house, I say you have bizarre vivid nightmares because it's a really common when either you I get the mold in the house, or if you sleep in a multi hotel room where like what just happened to me when I woke up is there some kind of like an attempt for the body to communicate with you through dreams. Do you believe that or is this just purely physiological chemicals stuff? Yes. I mean, you're you're hitting the syphilis that I know the least about molded amoeba. I I haven't actually seen research on their causing nightmares light, viruses, and bacteria and chemicals. But but the general process question that that you asked me, I'm not sure that I would personify at like, the body is trying to communicate with you. Although. Perhaps. But I think one phenomena is just that Sang's that aren't conscious by day often get through an air dreams because we don't have to pay attention to all our our band of consciousness is pretty narrow compared to everything going on in our brain. So by dead, we're we're focused on, you know, everything we're looking at in seeing and processing visually and sounds of conversations for having and in your brain just has to be keeping you upright and balanced and everything and at night, there's no visual real stimuli coming in your perception of sounds stamped way down. You're not having to deal with any balance movements stuff. So a lot of the things that occupy by day are just not there in those brain areas or are quiet at night. So saying Slyke if something is subtle. Early pressing on a nerve in a way that you don't even feel as pain or or you do have a lot of Erin interferon running around you body kind of making you feel vaguely sick just things that we wouldn't notice by day because they're being crowded out of our attention. I think often get through into our dream content. Just because they don't have to compete with all the sort of basic visual input. That makes sense. I definitely hear a lot of stories about people who especially kind of long-term illnesses. I do not put any kind of psychic attribution to some people. Tell these stories is, oh, this means my dream was knowing I was gonna get cancer knowing I was going to get this neurological disorder, but it's very striking to me that it tends to be the disorders. That are rather slow informing in the body where the processes there long before you would usually clinically notice. Sit where somebody has dramatic dream that occasionally tells them they have cancer in a way that they understand it. But more commonly just in retrospect as soon as they do get diagnosed with cancer, you know, is about some monster growing in exactly that part of the body where where the cancer actually was. And I think that's a function of just that our body. Our body is making antibodies even when they're not working against infections in cancer, and nerves are getting pushed out of the way. And and so I I I see a lot of dreams that seem to be syncing sayings that that the person isn't realizing doctor wouldn't diagnose yet clinically and yet that are already going on, Bobby. So the sense of unease can come through. Yeah. I was with a person once where we had a a toxic mold breakout. I'm not not using mold here because I know that experts. What what she did is she woke up and accused me of random things that that simply did not happen that coming into the bedroom and turning the lights on and off and then picked up her car keys stormed out of the house and got into the car to to drive somewhere. And then went to sleep in the car, and she came back in a couple of hours later, and I was completely bewildered. She had been asleep the whole time the did that and I didn't know it because their eyes are open, and she was talking to me. But but she was this was like part of a nightmare sequence that she was having. And I've read other things about people going places and doing things when they're still asleep. Is this something that that you've come across in your research or something you've seen in patients or is this just one of those random things? Well, that sort of thing can happen. Very rarely in some people who who have something just a little. Different neurologically and will have an overlap of asleep state with with the waking state. It can happen spontaneously. And you're saying in this case, you might have had something to do with mold. But we're that's really common is some of the Espy's sleeping pills are very bad about producing hybrid states. Where somebody is not completely alert. They won't remember things. And yet they have their eyes open, and they're able to speak as we are not usually able to deer sleep so sleeping pills produce that sort of of appear to be awake, but aren't actually fully awake behavior pretty often. But but it can happen spontaneously even without sleeping pills. You know, if she had taken a sleeping pill. She had not taken a sleeping pill and wasn't on any word medications, and it happened on probably. The hottest most humid night of the year when we were both experiencing all sorts of weird symptoms that we didn't yet understand what they were. So that was always our theory, and some of the the mold experts have talked about this strange like people having strange nightmares. But I it wigged both of us out because to to be moving around and walking and talking but asleep. I didn't quite realize that that was something those possible until I I saw it. Yeah. Well, I mean, I've heard similar stories a lot wing to sleeping pills, and occasionally, you know, for other assorted or no obvious reason. We'll switch gears into something where I know you've spent a lot of of your work, which is how do we put our dreams to work for us. And I've been interested in lucid dreaming for twenty plus years. I do interesting types of neuro feedback that oftentimes will cause me to have more intense dreams, and I've looked at various techniques for creating lucid dreams, and even the sort of out there stuff like astral travel like you perceive yourself leaving your body and floating around and all those kinds of things. What's what's your take on the usefulness of dreams like him to put them to work for us? Yes. I mean, I first of all I think they're naturally already working for us to a certain extent with without us. Having to have any very specific intent about that. In in my work for my book, the committee of sleep where I went around interviewing experts in all fields about whether they ever had had a dream. That was useful. The majority of examples I collected were completely spontaneous. I mean, they the narrative would often be, you know, I never paid much attention to my dreams until I was working on this chemistry problem that I just couldn't solve and then one night. I had this dream where dream solved so people who aren't particularly paying attention to their dreams. Can sometimes have breakthrough dreams of? I think it happens a lot more in cultures set explicitly teach dreams may be useful for practical things. Because I think some of the problem solving so obvious that when you wake up, you know, it's just you remember being told exactly the literal answer to this problem, but some of them that are just a little bit met more metaphorical, and it takes a little reflecting on whether that could actually be the answer. I think a lot of westerners might brush, the dream aside. And they've had a problem solving dream in they'll never know it. Whereas in a culture, where you're taught that your dreams are gonna show you a better way to build a hot or where where the prey animals might be hiding this month or something, you know, and you have a dream in you immediately kinda think about whether that's telling you something it's a lot likelier to be useful. So I definitely have spent a lot of time developing cream incubated techniques that. Help people guide their dreams toward particular questions in problems, and those can really increase the rate at which dreams give us really practical help. But I think simply paying attention to the dreams you're already having is is the the first big step toward that the reason that I invited you on the show is that I think everyone listening to this with love to know, some of those techniques of a lovable probably when read your books about this. But what are what are the steps that I could take anyone could take to do that? They're sort of three three different levels of steps and one is just to increase your dream recall to to get more content. That's already there that may be helpful and first of all just to have the drains sleeping seven or eight hours tonight is very important because we dream about every ninety minutes, but each dream period gets much long. Longer than the preceding one. So she sleep four hours instead of eight you're not getting half your dream taught. You're getting like twenty percent of your dream top. So short sleeping hurts us in a lot of ways. But, but it it impacts dreaming sleep more than than the other forms of sleep so sleeping, eight hours is just the single most important thing to to increase your dream recall, but also paying attention telling yourself as you fallen sleep that you wanna remember your dreams in the morning, keeping either your phone was summer carding app on it next to the bed or old-fashioned paper and pencil to write with. And when you wake up in the morning to just take a moment to think about whether there's a dream. They are the recall for dreams is so fragile that. If you hop pay attention to something else, a dream that serve was in your memory will be really gone. I think everyone's had the experience kinda waking up and going. Oh, wow. What an amazing dream and then half an hour later when they're trying to tell somebody. They can remember that thought of having amazing dream, and they can't remember what the dream was so going over in your mind at least and writing it down or according preferably. So just just making an effort to remember more dreams. Lots of people. Find opens up a whole other world to them. The the second step though is in thinking about more explicitly interpreting them and the best forms of dream interpretation. Are are not some experts. Telling you what they think your dream means or certainly not those those cookbook things that they if you dream of a dog. This means, you know, acts you will have bad far Chen. You will have good fortune. It the best interpretation even if someone else is doing it for you is is to help you figure out your own symbols metaphors asking somebody. What is the dog to you? Pretend. I'm from another planet until me about dogs and one person will say, well, they're big fear. Scary animals with sharp teeth that can bite you in the next person will say, they're they're loyal. They're man's best friends. They're more reliable than your human friends, and the next person will say, oh, these these cute little baby likes things that we need to protect, you know, and for those three people the dog in the dream will represent you know, those three very different thing. Things. So sometimes it's helpful to have an objective. Outsider querying you on these things, but you can do a certain amount of this for yourself just playing through each of the main characters are animals or activities and kind of you know, what does this represent to me? And then kindness stringing it together. Is there anything in your waking life right now where it feels like there is some helpless little thing that's being menaced? By big scary thing in excetera, and especially focusing on the emotions in the dream. Is there anything in my waking life that gives me that gut feeling the pit of my stomach that I had when the which was chasing me down the hall in nineteen often gets us in touch with things that that are important in our waking life that we've kind of been shoving aside. So so interpretation is important, but then the sort. Of third. Most advanced step is in trying to guide influence your dreams, which of course, is worth doing until you're remembering them these simply, but then you can tell yourself as you falling sleep. Anything is simple as you wanna dream about a particular person or topic or as specific as you know, that very technical problem work that I'm stuck on. I'd like to have a dream that showed me some other solution to this. And and just kind of form your question or problem or topic as as a simple Fraser sentence to repeat to yourself. You know, I wanna dream about acts as you're falling asleep. And then because dreams are so very visual. It's it's helpful to come up with imagery that that relates to. I mean, if it's a person you're trying to dream about obviously, you picture them for more complicated problems. You may. Have to think a little bit more about what one or several visual images, go with them. And if you pretty good imager just doing that in your head as you falling asleep is what you wanna do. But if you're someone who doesn't really have very much visual imagery, clearly when you're wake you might want to put some real physical object by your on your night table. Like just a photograph of the person you're trying to dream about or or some little grouping of objects that represents the problem or question. So you have something to physically stare at. So that one way or the other you're getting a visual image, and because their dreams are so visual that that they're cute even better by imagery than by by words. So do those two things kinda tell yourself what you wanna dream about stare at or is closed visualize something connected to it. And in one of my. Studies where I had a college students trying to solve fairly simple problems that they would eventually saw. But had not yet saw like homework problems for some of them. They were doing this incubation for one week at bedtime and fifty percent of them dreamed about the topic of their problem in a week of doing this and about one fourth solve the problem. And now that part would vary a lot depending on how difficult problems were am I think would drop off some from from this easy problem situation? But the about fifty percent of the easily a week achieved the topic they retargeting that that seems to hold up across across lots of kinds of content. That's pretty impressive. Are there supplements or herbs that make it more likely like I know five HCP L Fien? I've heard people talk about those as as things that can assume those can manipulate sleep quality. But I have a friend who says he takes foreigner milligrams of the and has hours and hours of fully lucid dreaming every night. I doesn't work for me. But have you come across like magic potions that give you better dreams too. I had seen research on ram and in the case of five H T P. I don't think it's thought to be very relevant to ram it. It definitely it's definitely precursor for serotonin, which should help you go to sleep easier to sleep more soundly at that sort of generally falling asleep. And obviously if you're trouble recalling dreams because your general insomnia might might be useful in that sense. There's at least one study on B six which does. Serves in in Zayn precursor to some of the things that are necessary to rapid eye movement sleep there two of the Alzheimer's drugs have been studied and found to slightly increase. The odds of having lucid dreams, which will talk about more in a minute, but dreams where you know, you're dreaming while you're dreaming. They don't generally enhanced dreaming. They actually make you wake up more often. Probably USA dreams are a little closer to waking. So there's there's definitely a lot of research on chemicals that that either increase dreaming a bit more or or altered in some way. None of them seem to be just really dramatic effects for all people. But they'll be statistically significant. If you have a reasonably large group at it certainly makes sense because our neurons. Smithers in our body are influencing just that the rapid eye movement sleep starts at all different qualities of it. So the the substances that are precursors for for neurotransmitters are in are very likely to have some effect on the other hand, our body has all these static mechanisms kind of regulating that that we don't have way much more than it considers normal at any given time and sort of pushing back damping down excesses of things. So I think that keeps the effects from being real dramatic view. Remember, the names of the Alzheimer's drugs. I'm guessing Memon teen might be one of them. But galanter mean is the prescription wan that spins studied and the other one is that really common of food store. Basically both of them are -ffected ING s two choline one of the chance that is involved in rapid eye movement. Sleep. And and they're both pushing the rim sleep a little closer to the arousal threshold which both Ken waking up and interfere with sleep. And personally, I tried the Glenn to Maine, and it it mainly made me sleepless. Well, me too. I've tried that as well. But it in in the well control studies, again, there are a lot of things that show some effect. We've got a large enough group, and it's averaging over the group FEC because for few people it's working very well. So it seems to be anything that pushes us till coin up is is somewhat likely to push lucid dreaming bit. But also to it you up a bit more for people listening who aren't with our neuro transmitters acetylcholine is one of the stimulatory neurotransmitters and their lots of herbs that'll prevent your body from breaking down, and you can take it directly. But too much acetylcholine causes like muscle cramping intention, and so there's a big complex interplay here. And and I think what you said is really important that the stuff that works for one person may completely not work for another person. Which is why these? Complex stacks of all sorts of different things. You're probably gonna you're gonna get results that are very different because something's gonna be working against each other in the same stack. I think that they don't work dramatically, they they were no better than some of the more just sort of psychological practices that you can do to have have more lucid dream. So I I definitely do not recommend doing prescription Alzheimer's drugs to see if you have more listen dreams, even though I just said I have done this not decide do. Well, the the audience will have radios is the kind of people who are probably willing to self experimental little bit. But there are long-term side affection most of these things, but you know, if you did try it once, and you looked at the the drug insert and decided if it was you know, worth worth the risk for you. I'm sure some people will try it. And there are lots of lots of reasons you might want to or not want to and I'm I'm grateful that we're in a in a society where people can be free to to make that choice. I I may or may not have experienced a difference. When I was or wasn't experimenting with microdosing LSD where you're taking about five percent of normal dose of LSD as cognitive enhancing substance. Have you come across any research on changes in dreams from people who are taking way below the I'm going to go have a trip doses of of hallucinogenic drugs. Seen any research per se on that on on on the microdosing Alyce specifically, I've not seen any. Okay. There's actually there are a lot of trucks where coming off some seems to produce dramatic dreams. You certainly don't wanna become out. Call can go into withdrawal just to have really really vivid dreams, but that. Actually getting drunk on a given night will it will reduce your them sleep through the early part of the night. And then you'll tend to have a little more ram toward the end. But people who are withdrawing from really habituated to alcohol are are somewhat in withdrawal have huge amounts of ram sleep. So launch dreams or nightmares? I mean, some of the worst nightmare in the world happened then but some really kinda dramatic pot. You know, it's just more vivid in all directions at if visual imagery, but to a lesser extent, the empha- Demy, most of the stimulants MDM AA as people are coming off those there's a kind of. Heightening of of ram in the sleeping off you pretty much can't go to sleep including dreaming sleep while while you're on most of the substances, and there does seem to be a high rate of report vivid dreams after after any of those stimulant drugs, including MD may which doesn't really feel like stimulant, but people can't sleep on it, and it's closely related to invite Amine doesn't feel speedy as amphetamine or Coker are most of the quote stimulants. What about a ketamine I've been working with a physician as these Yala gist who uses ketamine to help people deal with PTSD. And also during certain types of IV infusions that are are really uncomfortable. Is that something that affects dreams, I think most of these drugs haven't been studied for their fix on dreams specifically and the ones that affect? Dreams. The most are not generally the dreamy. They are things like the stimulants that that then, you know, they're essentially suppressing rim sleep while you're on them. And then you have this kind of ram rebound after them and some of the some of the drug slight LSD in Iowa ska. I'm not sure I'd put ketamine in this category. But the ones that induced kind of dreamy states while you're away and have some of the transmitters that would be involved in REM sleep higher, then you wouldn't necessarily mutt. You know, you might even get a rebound in the other direction of kind of less dreamlike activity. Once you finally go to sleep. Okay. Coming down from Iowa SC. Worries about whether there during Viking say through twelve hours of loose mating awake. You're probably just glad you can go to sleep because you're a little worn out. After that. We sells my experience. Now, one of the most incredible books and mean that I I've read a book on Tibetan sleep yoga, and this is an obscure book, I read it maybe ten years ago, and I'll I'll get the exact title, but it's probably called Tabet and sleep yoga. Remember, this was a guy who's a law somewhere. And he's starts out the book saying, look, I'm a really busy guy. I I'm all day long and teaching and I'm being among and all these things. So I found I didn't have time for meditation. So now when I go to sleep I do all meditation while I'm asleep because I'm actively dreaming the entire time asleep. So I do all of my personal enlightenment process work. Well, I'm just do essentially sitting loaded posible, the sleep he's sleeping laying down. But in his in his dreams. He's full-on meditating consciously is this just like a half human sort of person. Or is this a state that maybe people list? To the show could could achieve like, well, I actually can can consciously either work on my personal development process or like put all those eight hours of nightly downtime. Can I put those back into production is this possible? Do you know who does this? If you devote your entire life to studying Tabet in Buddhist practices, you could. I don't I don't think it's easy for most people to learn to do the things that that they are talking about and the the Tabet Buddhists have all kinds of dream practices in different branches of them sink, quite different. They're Wayne more interested in dreams than than Buddhists are other branches of Buddhism. But they're actually to books out there, by Tibetan, Buddhist monks that have pretty much a title that dream yoga, but but they differ by one word. I'm not keeping them straight. Right now. One is by a. Baton who settled in Virginia and has his main center out of Virginia and his book is all about how you're supposed to as you fall asleep meditate on different like, the heart shock row with a red Lotus there while reading your left nostril lying on your right side to adduce certain kind of dream all the sort of position nostril. Shock Russia at color will will produce certain kinds of three and content. And it's the like eerie precise obsessive system of having the dream. You're supposed to have next. And then the underwent is believe that you're talking about. Or maybe there's a third. There's a lot more emphasis on developing lucid dreaming. It's actually advocating lucid sleep in general that you should learn to be aware as you following sleep in watching yourself sleep. But it also that that's the one that talks a fair bit about how you can learn to your meditations in your sleep. That's the one I read. Yeah. But my understanding is you know, they are talking about things, you know, achieved after ten years of kind of full-time practice of these things for the most part and less unless one is going to vote once life too. Tibetan Buddhist practices. I don't think they're particularly quick waste about giving some kind of dream control. But but I mean, I totally believe that they happen. And that those people are talking about very authentic. Very interesting experiences. Those ten year type practices kind of pissed me off because a lot of us have careers in families and things we wanna do in the world. I actually started a neuro science thing up in Seattle called forty years of zen and the the point of forty is to be able to teach you to put your brain. When you're wake into the same state as someone who's done forty years of days in practice. It's it's been a big part of my personal development thing. I'm like, wow, I can really push things. But you're really inspiring me to to think about whether I can measure the brains of some of these people and find out what they're really doing when they're asleep, and then make it teachable in less than ten years. So you you totally gave me a something to work on their. Thank you for that. Because some of these states like they tell you meditate on the heart and look at these loads because they don't have ways to say, this is what's happening in the brain. So they're trying to pick up the the feeling in the body and then use language for something. That's that's the world feelings not the world of language. So it's very hard very hard to translate that even any discussion around dreams you and I are running into the same problem where we're trying to descr. Something that only use UC even though someone next to you might be seeing something different. But in state, and I think that's why a lot of research is really behind on sleep sleep on dreams specifically. And that's why I wanna talk to you. Because like, let's look at that. Because it's interesting, which is thank you for doing that work because it's also hard. Yeah. Well, actually until your little bit about the the Technics that I think so far work best sort of in a quicker way for westerners, which are the these tend to be high nearby. Steve Laverdure to be alterations of of things that that he's had out there for twenty or thirty years on and basically the most effective will attack of her is if whence. Not going to sit one's life. Meditating seemed to be a combination of. What we call. Daytime reality checks where you part of it is just asking yourself if you might be dreaming right now. Taking that question seriously and thinking about it free farm is good. But then to have some erase acidic reality check where you have determined things that seems were differently in your dreams versus away. And you check a couple of those things, and none are completely universal for all people. But some of the things that are likely to be different in injuries for most people are most people can't read well in their dreams sub you prepared at all any letters will hieroglyphics other people can read a short sentence. But they'll lose the flow after that other people can read something, but if they looked away it says something different the dream. So if you get if you think about how in a written light which behaves in your dreams. Then, you know, whether you just have to find something to read or whether you read something look way back at but prolonged people that works. Well, one of the checks also clocks and watches do not work properly for most people injuries. They will not change time every minute or they will change much more than a minute or they will not change sequence. You'll numbers or LB disliking numbers that don't are fun to possible Helms or they'll be blurry invading. You can't read them understand the numbers. So thinking about what time he says do most people if they flick light switch in a dream. If won't read it really damn of rightly brighten, the light, and they have no effect or it may dim it. Just barely them. Maybe lag time before the dinner. Brightening. So that so so they're they're number of things that work differently for most people, but you have to identify a couple for yourself that these were this way migraine when they were the other way when I'm away and then take seriously doing that ask yourself if you're dreaming just reform that is if there's anything that doesn't seem plausible to waking. And then whichever couple of picked out over look light. Switch. Men pay out something written material, and it's hard to get yourself to take the question seriously. We all feel like law course, a I know I'm away. But but to really really ask yourself that question in tested, first of all, it usually has some kind of interesting effects just then in there your way, he said to really take that question. How do I seriously a lot of people report that the fest just, you know, very induces very interesting state of consciousness, even as you're practicing. But the main point is that any new practice that we do by day is likely to carry over into our dreams. So if you check whether you might be draining regularly several times a day away, you will very likely have a eight in which or. Remembering to do your am. I dreaming practice, and you'll do it in the dream and the lights which won't work or the, you know, the writing well, so so that's that's one of the two main Technics, and the other thing that is also very helpful. And they also by while is much closer to the dreaming evasion. I already described to you where you're trying to influence the contents of your dream that night in any way. But very similarly to how you might say, you know, I wanted dream about X problem are wanted backpacks person. You just telling yourself I want I wanna be lucid in hygiene tonight tonight at my dream. I want to know treating and you tell yourself that as you're falling asleep and against some kind of imagery to go with that. If you ever had a lucid dream already, you might kind of replay the moment in that dream where you realized it was a dream in your mind. His again, kind of narrative or visual imagery will. Will get through to your dreaming mind, even better verbal part. So if you do if you practice those two things regularly, it is very likely to increase your rate of lucid rates a couple times, I've been tempted to order these little devices that I've seen this is going back at least more than ten years. It's like a little thing you own your belt looks like a pager for people who are old enough to remember what pages look like, and it just has like a green button on it. And the ideas you wear this thing during the day, and you check it to say is the light green. And you tell yourself it won't be green. If I'm in a dreaming state. So that you start questioning the exact like you just described and my dreaming now am I dreaming now. So that when you have a lucid dream, you sort of know, it is there have you ever tested device like that. Have you heard of people who've who've done that? Burge did one of the first versions of sleep goggles there. They're all kinds of less expensive. Imitators working off the same things but had one little electorally to detect rapid eye movement sleep simply by by the Ivan's themselves, which is much it. Anyone claims they're doing EEG leads off simple cheap device. It's not really measuring brainwaves. But but Ryan on the surface, you can pick up the muscles can fell he is. So he had one way to detect Imus and then of very soft red light with lies and you had to buy day. He telling yourself if I see a red light flashing at only dreamy kind of this. This reminding yourself at especially remind yourself you fought L sleep. Then you wore this device that was the texting rabbit. I limit sleep in blinking red light at you. And he did some well control research and it. Definitely increased the the rate of lucid dreams yet tends to wake a lot of people up every rim period. If if the light is not just at the exact right fresh whole for for them. And again, I wear this device. Some and it was it was making me recall every period of because it was waking me out a little bit. But I slept with it a few nights. And then one morning I woke up and my throne thing across the rhythm. I guess because I didn't like that. So so again nest range at UC, I would have been one of the not success stories in the in the group. But definitely there were people having more lucid dreams than if nobody was sleeping with with that device. And then he also though, we can we can treat ourselves about any of these things, including the reading light switch thing that I just told you about because with with his goggles. He did have some people report dreams where it was a red light flashing in their dream. And they would wonder why that was and then they would kind of say they must be a cop car going by that's fire engine going by outside, you know, making linking red lights and they proceed with the dream without without being lucid. I think Steve Lieber funniest story about a missed. Hugh was something he never. Dealt through the general public, but he was trying on himself which was he had a sleep with a register electrode. And and when he was in round, it would activate a taper harder that he had attached to it that would play a recording his own voice going. You were sith you're training Sivas tween may jet and again, just like with the red light. The threshold was was attempting to be set just high enough that it would be perceived in the dream not so high that it would wake you up and any actually found some successes that but his funniest dream was that he was in his sleep lab walking around the hall, and he began to hear sees. And isn't a dream. He thought I got someone's not to hold of my sleep Cape. And as a joke, they're playing over the loudspeakers. He was definitely mixing his realities there and that can be. Sleeping will rationalize will. When when coming up with why this could be happening. Sometimes it makes you know, some other explanation considers plausible, but this works because a fair bit of time it goes of life, which is not working. That's because dreaming rather than lights which is not working. That means I need to call her tradition. So so it it it triggers lucidity now for the time that certainly increases the rate of of chains that is so cool. And this is something that I think is maybe missing from a lot of discussions in biohacking where these altered states that come when when we're asleep can have real value for us. And I I'm grateful that you've spent so much time writing about these in your two books and just putting some science behind something that is it's hard to measure because it's all subjective. Thank you so much. For being able paredo and thanks for your extensive work on dreaming and lucid dreaming where can people find out more about your work and your books a website, which is dear Barrett dot com. Use need to spell it. Right. D I R D R E is my first name that no break bear at the I R E T T dot com and on the main page one category is folks one category.

Got A box of tissues enhance sanitizer as she is prepared also? Last week I was hit with the normal flu. The Kito flew my period and still switching over birth controls so I was so sad last week. You were I remember looking at you being like. Hey how are you feeling? You're like the face I was like. Oh my God I've never seen you look so sad cuddle you but then I didn't because I knew you were sick. Celeste Walla. Hug You and be like it's okay. It'll get better. We'll go wait. Speaking of Australia next to Australia is New Zealand. Oh which as of today because my video went up on our blog chant on my log channel unleashes videos soon to come. Td we can finally talk about why we went to New Zealand in November twenty eighteen. Oh my gosh. So so stick around Cliffhanger. You have to wait till the end. We're GONNA do that game today. We do have a game all right. So if you guys are new to the podcast we always like to start out every now and then with like a fun little game a little something and Remm was actually looking at old episodes yesterday and she was. Oh my gosh. We need to do another unpopular opinions. Was You said Harry styles is in cute and I want shot. I didn't even mean to plan that belief that was just my reaction conflicts like the the new year leg and then the shut up shut out. Today we've come up with an unpopular opinion each that we're going to bring up generating to talk about wine. You want me to go first. Yes please so. My unpopular opinion is something that I know most people mostly girls but most people girls will think I'm crazy but there are a select few people who probably agree with me. I'm hoping you're out there. I hate getting my nails done. Only meet you shore in such a chore. But it's such a luxury what I hate. I was just thinking about that this morning I would here. And this is the part where Alicia you sound so like annoying because getting her nails and it's such a nice luxury thing to do. You realize it yes. I don't mind getting a pedicure as much because I can be on my phone answering emails. You know like be productive. Yeah but for me to sit and not be able to do anything like that for over an hour. I feel like it's such a freaking waste of time but I don't WanNa do myself so it's just. It's not a fun for me. I just like I fully agree. I on every level with that. My Nail Nail Eighty does play movie. So it makes it go by faster supplies movies. I like. It's very nice and I love my girl. Perla we're BFF's now the only thing is like it. Takes so long. And I feel like I. I know because I always feel like it's such a luxury no I never say because I'm very aware of like it's so stupid to say like it's just I I remember. I used to love getting my nails done but I think it's honestly comes down to just like a personality thing I'm always so go. Go Go and like for me to sit still is so hard even for me to sit and even watch a movie. Sometimes I'm like I get bored and I'm like I need to do something. Yeah so I think to sit and have like my hands a physically tied down. I mean not being able to be productive or whatever is very hard however something. I've learned that's helped this. I don't know why it took me. You know twenty five years to realize that oh I can like poppinsan headphones and watch youtube videos. Listen to a podcast or be more productive. Well the wall very years and I was sitting there be so bored like looking at the law colors even though I know I'm just going to get white like it'd be like shed. You blew it no way. And of course I the hard Gel which is supposedly supposed to be a little healthier for your nail which it does take like ten minutes longer and let me tell you those ten minutes. Add up in chain makes it feel like to our so funny. Yeah so I finally realized like oh I can listen to a podcast. I mentioned this in the main channel video recently of like. Oh make a whole like. I use my watch later playlist on youtube all the time now. Yeah so many videos to that because then they can just auto play especially when you're getting both hands done. Yeah you can just watch it and it's great so now I don't hate it as much because I feel like I'm still like being productive. Something doing research. Whatever but for the longest time. I'm an idiot. Wouldn't sit there for two hours and my nails for whatever. Reason does take a long time. I don't mind pedicure. I love a paddock area. I just manicured takes forever and I get like weird and I need a move around by my unpopular opinion. I'm going to be fully honest. I don't really know much about this show. I do know you know more but I've recently seen a few tick talks talking about it. I actually saw one girl break down and I agreed with her. That Ross shouldn't have ended up with Rachel. Did He. End Up with Rachel in the end. I were they on a break. That's the opinion. I think what it is. Wait what part that will. I don't actually. I don't really watch the show. But did they end up in? They ended up together in the end. They had Cole sprouse together. Correct Well No. There's so much knowing all shoot. No I kind of left it like open-ended were okay. I'm going to take it back. Where are they on a break? Do you believe they were on a break or no? Well what are you what do you think because I don't hear your obviously it's unpopular opinion? Okay so this is what the Tick Tock told me that I. I've watched friends here and there. So what's going on but I don't know like the main issues I will say it took me. I remember growing up seeing on. Tv like notice it from the Purple Room. Which side no? I read an article that said the set designers purposely made it purple. Because when you're flipping through channels you would recognize it so it made the show stand out so much more and I was like there is so much like strategy to every little thing because I remember being so young and seeing it pop up on the screen and I knew what show it was and I didn't even know what the show is called. Why would I knew like. Oh it's not show. I remember my mom. Growing up would have her bunko nights. I'm like I was just like Orange County thing I've ever heard my momma ever Bunko nights and my dad would have spoken is with his friends. They'd all come over. She'd had like Saks. They paid Bunko. And then either the bachelor or friends would like beyond all. Watch it together so exactly what we would do now. Though which is but anyways to my knowledge they were on a break and then he slept with someone else and then she's upset because she's like we like even if we're on a break like you should have. I fully agree with her. If you're on a break then you should. He should have been like pining after her still and not gone with someone else. Then you're like I don't know I think I think that's why it's like. That's the whole thing man. It's like a fifty fifty. Everyone's like I don't know what do you say? I don't know I think if I hate when I hate that I can see everyone's side because if I was Ross I'd be like oh I get it like they weren't together but then if I was Rachel I'd be like no no although I have taken many friends quizzes and I've always come out as being like Rachel so I think Rachel side and say that like no no I think so. It's not like oh I just love. I love Ross. Oh my God you do. He's Sochi oh you like yeah. He seems like a nice guy. I'm a big fan really. She's so Kooky I love it. Oh my G- high. Don't you think so? I generally you being phoebe really. Yes Fun Paul. All right. That was weird on popular opinion that I just like they did end up. They didn't have a child right. Yes Kohl's rouse. No no no. No calls was his kid from his ex wife shoe. Do they have a boy or a girl together? A girl Oh kyu what was her name. 'em All right. Oh you all right good game so the other day I had this dream and I wanted to tell you about it and it was like no need to save this for the podcast because it literally explained how literally insane but this this is your impact. Also all I'm going to say so. I had a dream that I was pregnant like I found out I in that moment I found out I was with child. You know what I mean like I was pregnant. I was like oh my gosh tested positive. I'm pregnant I was like my life's about to change like forever forever like everything I can possibly think of. I'm about to have a kid a child. Maybe it's because of staff also Teheran's sister-in-law Vanessa and you in June so I just saw her and she was pregnant like lots of like being even anytime I see aspens volumes like baby. Apparently babies on the mind right. Well I was pregnant in this dream and I was freaking out obviously makes so much sense and guess what comes to my head. I don't I was so sad that I probably couldn't go to Coachella. My makes odd part. I wasn't even happy because I was that I couldn't drink at Coachella. That's not my girl. Like what like what? That's where I am in life so clearly. I'm not meant to have a kid right now. Also at one point. You're going to be that mom that brings their child like literally fresh out of the womb. What is wrong with me? Really? What is wrong? That was the first thing that came to my mind and I was like. Oh my God wait wait what am I going to do about half my outfit? I'm insane I'm horrible and I was like wow the fact that I was sad that I couldn't drink. Not even having like why is wrong with me so bad. I'm blaming me. Two years ago I would not dream k going back to these clips that I looked at yesterday I went back and yesterday I went through all of the assets of like all the videos we've had and one of them was it was astounding you about how you're down Bitch. I saw and I was just like yeah like no one else would say yes to me and you're like well. I always say yes. So that's on you could have easily said no bitch could have not been down bitch yeah so anyways. Canada firm. I'm not pregnant I will be. She will be drinking most likely. Be DRINKING THOSE YEAH. I just thought that was a dreams are free and weird. I had a weird why I'd had some weird ones lately about people in my life. Who are no longer in my life and you wake up feeling like none upset. I just wake up and it takes me a minute to like remember where I am now. And they're not in my life anymore. We'll and it's like. Why are you thinking about them? Like why is your conscious thinking about them? And then you hear all of these things if people saying when you dream of someone that means they're dreaming of you and then you're like is that even. I don't think that's true. I don't think so like I would like to think so when I was about every night and I was like. He's thinking homey injury he's like no. Yeah I don't know I don't know but then also it's like I think there's so much to dreams that like. We don't even know you know what I mean like. We can't what's but then sometimes you know at night you'll go to at and out and then that night you dream about and you'll even just like see a sign for in and out and then in your dream like you eat and announced so it's like it's so interesting what your subconscious like takes throughout the day and like puts into your dream few facts about dreams number one. This is just something I've learned personally but every time I eat right before I go to bed. I have the most vivid nightmares and or just like crazy dreams. Ever see if I if I just eat and lay down go to sleep every time. I will totally agree with that. And what's crazy is. After we started like the nutritionist world life everything about that because we have our meals like pretty pretty. I'd like every day pretty much the same thing right. It really actually opened my eyes to the exact same thing to where whenever I have like a free meal or cheat meal or something or like a really heavy meal that I don't normally eat that I can guarantee I will not sleep. Well other have like sweats. Or I'll wake up la tossing and turning and I. It makes me think of how so many times. I never understood why wouldn't sleep well when I was like. Wow it's because I'm eating way too late and then going to bed like it's such a fact. I can almost pinpoint every single time. That'll happen and when I just eat normal like a normal like my normal clean kind of stuff then I sleep great. It's so weird. It's such a weird thing. How food really controls everything. Also with dreams. You can't make up anybody in your brain like any anyone that shows up in your dreams. You have seen at some point in your life whether you just pass them in the street whether it's someone that you talk to every day whether or anything like that you you physically cannot make up. Someone's look in your brain to have your dreams. You've seen them at some point. What's really what's weird to me too. Is You know when you have a dream that you go to. A place like for instance. I have a dream where I'm at my house but it's not my house. Who but I know it's my house. Yeah like that. He's seen before then really. You've seen something like that. But I feel like I make up a lot of random stuff in my dreams but like imagine you just walk by someone like you've been New York just see someone you don't register. The person could possibly show up in your dreams. Wouldn't recognize them. You've seen them at some point in your life. I all my guy that and then also your dreams only take place in the last like small amount of your sleep so like if you sleep for eight hours only lasts. Ten minutes will be you actually dreaming. Even though you feel like for eight hours you dreamt. I've actually noticed that or not noticed that I've heard about that too. Actually like dream cycles are only really ten minutes. And what's crazy though so when you go through multiple remm cycles like those when you think of your. Let's say you wake up. Y had an intense dream and you think about your whole dream and it's so long and crazy if you actually break it down. They're all like segments like they never really. You never really drive to the next location. You're just there so those are all separate cycles of REMM sleep where you have those dreams bats. What's weird because all I can look back and be like wait. You're right like those are they're so fragmented it goes together and those are all separate ten minute thing. Have you ever had had the thing where you like? Go to sleep and then you wake up from like a scary dream and then you go back to sleep and you just pick it again. Oh my God I it happened to me as a kid a lot. More and it would terrify me. It happened to me actually. Maybe this past month one time and what was crazy is every time I woke up going like when I would fall back asleep. I knew it was going to like yes. It's crazy like deep dive on dreams. Because I think it's like such interest we should bring in like a psychologist. I made love staying. I would just love to hear because obviously dreams can mean stuff. I believe that but then also there's times where my meeting a hotdog or some random gone like. What does that mean? Well you know what I mean. One time like certain things like signify things going on in your life if you dream about them like if you lose your teeth. Yeah what does it mean that? That one actually will. Someone told me it means. You're like sexually deprived. Larry is like so many of those reasons like awkward but then I told the UK that recently I was looking at Like it was actually like low on the list of what that meant but I was like okay but yeah apparently you can like look up like what does a cat means recalling or dying or even like water like supposedly. It's all really like significant and Ashley's actually had some intense crazy dreams and one time we like dove into it and just like looked it up see if it was actually like a thing and she was obsessed with this guy and she remembers this. She remembers being in a dream and like this kitten was drowning and she was like going after it and the kitten drown and it came out as this huge spider like robots. We looked at up and it was like to a T. The situation she was going in with this guy and it's so weird because I'm like does this actually mean anything I don't know but like it was like even the kitten something. The drowning meant something and then the drowning and like coming out of the water meant like his true colors. It was so weird so I was like. Is this actually a thing? But like it was so not what she was going through. Because this guy was laying on that we really hate hate him. Yes anyways Just use must be good. Oh date would yes at one point we were with Murphy Nico. Yeah that was Super Fun Day. Was that Saturday Saturday. Okay you guys. My days have been so jumbled. Haven't house until today have I seen and it was so much fun. It was my first time actually going and it was just rained. It did hail at some point to Pancho's which actually made it more fun would definitely recommend we saw Stanley. Because you don't know what it is the Melba Winds Faris. It's actually very interesting. It's this giant eleven hundred acres out in Malibu which obviously if it's in Malibu then that is a very expensive piece of pro and they said it's bigger than the amount at this. One single family owns is larger. Dan Disneyland California adventure in the parking. Lots putting together. Huge not is massive. I grew up in Anaheim like I know it is. That's all Anaheim is. I'm gonNA totally ruin these numbers but I'm pretty sure they said that the guy who ever bought it bought it for like it was two million burn like burn auction. Yeah for but it should have been twelve media so literally just by purchasing it. He made so much. Family is good good even more interesting. They said that the how they got the two million to pay for that was that family figured out how to do the You Technology Technology for fighter pilots back in. I believe it was World War. Two they said and so they had the technology to somehow send the signals from the ground to talk to the fighter planes radio frequencies and stuff and then from that they sold that for a ton of money obviously but then patented egg. Today's Bay are so smart. They panted that technology. Which now literally anybody with like if you're a drive through worker if you're if you're in the NFL like everyone is using. That technology with a headset uses. That so like they're already fine like that. So so my God. That is insane so smart. I don't know how they kept that patent for that long but so they ended up turning into a winery. And it's beautiful. Actually I heard that wineries are also not very profitable. It takes so much money to put into everything. You barely make a profit but I think it's more of like a passion thing. Yeah for sure so. This family owns it and they do this like wine safari where they have a bunch of different animals. There they have a A giraffe that they rescued. They have like. He's an all the commercials yes? He wasn't hangover three Danley. There's like llamas. Alpacas auks their cows law and I was definitely like I. I've always been hesitant to those types of things because I'm like do actually treat the animals good but like totally. Did they do well? I I've gone a couple of times before and you're able to feed them and pet them so then this time. I was confused while you weren't able to touch them anymore. And I was like so I went as DVD. So I was a real stoke that was going to be able to do something so I was excited to pet the animals and then I was chatting with the girl and I was like Oh. We're going to pet animals at all during this trip. And she said that they change their policies because obviously mixing alcohol with petting animals. Some people it'd be like a little too rough or just like not consider of the animals and animals are priority like they are everything for us so we just took away the whole thing and I was like that's smart. I mean I'm sad but I'm speaking of Pretty Lady. I definitely got nice and tipsy. I was like okay firms. Launching Nafta pull her weight two. It was my first time wine tasting and it was so much fun. I felt so sophisticated. It's so it was nice speaking of pregnant this girl. I thought I was pregnant. So funny and what see. Here's the thing you can have wine when you're pregnant like you can have a glass of wine. Which didn't know yes. I've been corrected by a few mom's Day. You can have like a very very very very low dose of wind. Just why not hard alcohol or anything apparently so I was sitting there and I was getting a boomerang like dancing and a girl walks by Murph and was like oh she's pregnant but like what blows my mind. Moore's like this was at the end of it and like I was like dancing backpack on front Like the front of my body and I had my Poncho over word or over it so it was just funny because I was like wait. Wait I forget how it happened. I think she was like the girl was like. Oh there next to us. And she's like oh she looks pregnant and the sister goes no. That's a backpack. And she was gone looking all the way on anything I was just like it was so funny. I was a good time though. It's a fun thing to do. Definitely what's so crazy as Lauren went the next day yeah. She texted me she was like. Oh my God I'm going tomorrow. She's like can I pet the animals. I know just improper yourself. You're not allowed to touch them so it was kind of sad but a good time. I was actually shocked because I really haven't been in the deep Malibu since the fires which was two years ago. Because it's kind of it's not just on the beach you know what it's like in the middle of all these canyons and stuff and it was actually crazy. 'cause I feel like you could still see some trees that were burned but there was still a lot. That were beautiful. The miley Cyrus. Malibu Song Did that come out was around. The fire was out. I think it was right after the fires right. I think as before four. Oh okay but that just feels like it was yesterday too. I I kind of in my head correlate that song with everything that went on because of her like her house burned down my God. That's so I remember all of that but it's yeah it's crazy. I'm so happy to see. How much has grown back? Oh my God Yeah No. I always ask questions especially being an influencer. You're always asked these random like same questions in interviews or panels or whatever and it's like what are your favorite beauty products and then the other ones like if you if you know if you had a fire like what would you take little things like that. It's like that's a common question people ask but like you never actually imagine being in a situation like that like that is so terrifying and it's so scary like I feel like my heart reaches out first so many people who like had to ever go through that. Have you ever been evacuated from a fire? Your family or anything. Now we've never really lived close. There's only been a few times a fire with somewhat close but even then it wasn't even close so I've never had to evacuate now. My family lives in a group in Anaheim hills which is like the suburb of Anaheim. And we live literally in the hills so Every year there's one hill at my parents like overlook the ninety one freeway so next to it is there's all these obviously like barren hills and every year those hills go up and fire Doodling Santa Anna Winds. Everything like that and I've always been I've grown up with them every year and it's like it gets bad and then also there's the sparks that kind of jumped so every year. There's at least like five or so houses that burned down in the hole like house track community. Oh my God. Like Murph grew up on a street down from US IN SO history. I think when you're a couple of them but last year was two years ago was the worst. It's been ever and the like actually evacuated my family. Of course. I wasn't living there at the time I was in la. But I remember seeing on the news that they were really focusing on Anaheim hills. It was a really really big firing people here Anaheim but they don't hear Anaheim hills exactly. It's like a weird it's almost like non Anaheim. It's a weird little pocket. But I remember my family is just so used to getting like quote unquote evacuation warnings. But then never actually evacuating. But last two years ago it was the worst it's ever been and they refused to evacuate and if my mom was listening to this. I don't care if I'm telling people because I was like calling them. Like sobbing hysterically sobbing. Everybody was trying to leave Anaheim hills and only like one way out and so everyone. I was hysterically crying. My parents when you came over and we were supposed to work that day and I was just watching the news I remember. He was just like sitting there watching me cry and he was so so he was probably like especially. Then you were like well. They're like no one came to our door yet to tell us to go. I was like mom. The Fire Marshal isn't gonNA go door to door to tell you to leave them with their sirens on leave. I feel like it's hard. To in that instance where you know that neighborhood is used to getting mornings all the time. It's like. Oh it's no big deal. Where if I was to get one I'd be like Oh my God. What are we like sneak out of my entire house? Oh my God that's scary. Actually I did get evacuated on. It's a kid I just remember. We went to my aunt's house so it does happen frequently but this one like a couple of years ago is so bad fires everywhere. Do you remember like Santa Barbara albums wants are really bad. Oh my God I think this is a perfect segue into a big announcement. Actually I just was on the phone with my lender on the way here. I officially got a house right now. Moving blogs I kind of have told I went house hunting a few weeks ago and honest to God. I wasn't expecting to find a house so quickly. I really really wasn't obviously there. Were a few on the list that I really really love from looking the listing and then when I saw them I love them so much but I I don't know I just wasn't expecting it. I went and toured houses and it all worked out so perfectly fine because my mom was supposed to go with me which love my mom to death honestly. I don't think my mom listens to this podcast. But like she wouldn't be the best with like business related things and my mom got sick and so my dad went with me instead and we went toward the houses and there was one specific house that we were like own. My God this is. My Dad was more excited than I am. And my dad has the most chill person I'm GonNa Shaw was like. Oh this is this. Is it so immediately on the phone with my CPA? Who Happens to be my dad's best friend from like when we were kids like it all was just like perfect and so we went in to die and immediately putting off Iran. I was just like so excited and part of me was like a little nervous though because I was like. Should I be jumping the gun so quickly like I haven't even seen that many but like in my gut? I just fully new. This is the right one. Oh please tell a story about the first. First House I sent you. Oh my God you guys. This is a test of our friendship. It's this is a good best friend. We've obviously talked about one day when you move out of downtown La like whenever you get a house and of course I've been through it from a few years ago and stuff so we've always just talked about let next up for you and stuff. It sounds like we're getting married our next and you know you always said like oh. I think I wanNA live in. This area are no. I think I wanna live in this area. But you're really set on West Hollywood and what's so funny is I was like she's going to. I knew I always no but I of course I wanted you to figure that out for yourself too because it really when you are looking at places even if you're renting an apartment and you have to go in person yeah. There is such like the photos online. Look ten times better than they do in person because they're trying to sell it to you. Think of like a hotel image. It has a panoramic camera wide angle or like the window. That really has a wall. It has like the new. York's never ever what you actually think it's GonNa look like so I feel like with real estate. There are a little better than those hotel rooms. But they're still like not as much it's not as not as their anyways. So Ram sends like tax media other day. And I love the way you text me not the other day the other monk and she's like Oh my God you Alicia my dream all caps house my dream house and I was like Oh my God look like what like. Send me photos right now. She's like it's my dream house so God is happening because it's so funny. She sends me a photo of like. I looked like a jail literally. I kid you it. Was this brand like nothing again. Here's the thing I have such an image of what your dream house would be. It was a cool house. It just under you know what I mean. There's still a beautiful house however putting Dream House and I was like. This is such a clash like it was round so dark inside gray literally. It was like in the neighborhood of Prison Day. Did it was like it was a little just a box that looked like a box? That went upright. And she's like there's a backyard and I go and I scroll and there's like literally like four by four a graphic of a grasp patch and I was just like Ram like wait. What like literally. It was so ugly guys. The house was so ugly in my defense. I had just finished watching the Kim in Konya Architectural Digest Audit. So I think I was like. Oh my God that's what I want. Because they're very like the living there though. Minimalistic would like a single chair like that's what they do what? I want and then after ended up following through that day I didn't even put an offer and obviously I realized that day it wasn't right. Well she sends it to me and I'm like Oh okay. I'm like leash best friend test. You tell her it's ugly and let her like spend all this money on or do do you like support her and this decision thirty miles so I was like oh I did the. It's just not what I picture when you said that I was like. Oh really did a good. I think he did the perfect absolutely it was. It was beautiful but I was just like this is not good. You were like oh I like it when I picture in like. Of course like love whatever you want. Whatever you're drinking go see it because I knew for a fact if you saw it in person you'd be like. Oh Hell no you know what I mean but I was just like okay. It's okay good time and he was like in person after I was looking I was trying to get. I don't know why I think it was more so like for me. No matter what House I was looking at the kitchen that was like always in the kitchen in that kitchen. For some reason I really liked the concept and then obviously I found something way better than I love so much now. I'm in the process if all goes well in a few weeks I'll have the key in his moves so quickly but I'm very excited excited for you. There's a lot that goes into like house everything so much. I didn't even know about like you going through it now with like just putting it offers and stuff. I'm thinking back to me three years ago. I was so young. Yeah I can't believe you. Twenty five thousand four hundred twenty three twenty three and of course I was acting like nineteen looking back at my moving blogs a fill like six years ago because I was just so different than but I'm like I live. We bought a house. Do you regret moving from Orange County straight into a house or do you wish you'd gone an apartment. I remember astronaut even talking about it and we were part of us. Wanted to be like. How do we do a year in an apartment or something but we felt like it was such a waste of time to know we would just move after one year. Yeah so no. I don't regret it. I think it actually was really smart. The biggest thing was obviously like buying a house. The all my rent that I'm paying goes into the actual house. Yeah you know what I mean. So your money isn't just going down the drain which obviously with normal renting it. Kinda just goes nowhere which especially Living Hell A. The rent is extremely Yeah so I feel like that's that was as a financial decision. It was amazing. Yeah also at that time. I was looking to invest which I feel like a lot of you. Don't talk about this stuff but like at that time you know. Obviously Youtube pays pretty decent. At that time I was just like what do I do? I'm so young like I don't know I. I don't know anything about stocks. I don't know anything about investing. This is scary and the more I looked into it the more I felt more comfortable with real estate because I was like at least. It's something tangible I can have in my hands. Yeah even if the market goes down I still have a roof. You know what I mean like worse case there's a lot of different factors. I would think of and then I even thought of like Doomsday. Like let's say the next day my channels done Like completely done. I had built up enough savings to I could be there for quite some time still. Yeah but even then I was like you know I can sell it like worse case. I can sell it. It's fine it served. Its purpose and it was just so weird having to an adult like litter even little things like the dishwasher breaks. Oh I can't call maintenance to come upstairs and fix it. That'd be like Dad. I'm I'm only used to renting ever. That's going to be kind of thing for me that I'm a little nervous about. Yeah like like when I bought a lawn mower I was like Oh i. I reached a new level. All team right now looming. I didn't think of and even with you think you buy a house and it should be perfect little things break that you're just like what the heck like you know? My my whole house almost burnt down speaking of fires because my was built correctly because they forgot a concrete slab above the flames. Who just forgets that kept telling that to my real estate agent. Yeah when they were doing smoking inspections I was like just make sure because my friend literally I was just like wow that I've mentioned it in a whole blog can listen to that but it was insane. How people just kind of cut corners when they're building and it's just it's so crazy found out with buying a brand new house of because. I'm buying a brand new house. Yours is a brand new house. And we've had a couple of friends. Also by brand new houses versus a couple of friends who have houses that they're either leasing or renting or have just are have bought Older houses. There's a lot more wrong with the newer houses which you wouldn't expect but I think it's because it makes sense because they cut corners of the ad so I walked around doing the inspections of the house and there were so many things like little things wrong but there were so many. I was getting so stressed out because I was like the Instructor Guy. With soda was like is this normal? Yeah this I don't want to buy this if it's if it's normal exactly it was like no. It's like so normal with like a brand new house like Oh my God even checking the pipes and all those random things. I've never actually said this anywhere. I've filmed some clips that I meant to put in a video or feel at some point but I was actually. I'm looking out my parents by house and we actually put an offer on this beautiful place and I'm not kidding. It was perfect like it was perfect. We do the inspections we got approved. It was crazy like it's so weird. 'cause I feel like in the deep deep deep deep deep pit of my stomach. I was like unsure. Yeah I just thought it was nerves because you know like that's a lot you know already have a lot going on right but we were so excited and the house from the outside was beautiful. It was also new construction and we do the inspections and literally there were huge. Huge things wrong with it that I swear. Someone paid under the table just to get. The permit signed off because literally like something was wrong with the foundation. The electricity the water heater size was like everything was so wrong with this house and it was so crazy. 'cause you're like what are you talking about? It's brand new. It's beautiful and why it it's literally like a piece of basically they talk about the thing underground. Oh my God if you think of older houses a lot of them are on like a slight rise. I don't even know how to explain it more than like there's a platform. Yeah Yeah Okay. So I've never lived in a house like that ever but this house was like that so I was like okay. This is different right and they were doing inspections and we had the same inspector. Who did it my house? So we loved him. He was so thorough. Like if you're type one personality you should look into that. Because he was so meticulous with every little detail long story short he had to run a cord like underneath the house because it was raised. And he's comes back to us and he's so frustrated after hours news like they built this house so wrong like I can't get through like they poured in the right side of it. Like anyone should be able to like. You should be able to go down there and crawl around basically like which is crazy right. You couldn't because it was filled in and he was like I physically can't get through. I told her there's bodies under them. You don't know telling you don't know out there checking literally I was just like how. How do you build the foundation wrong? How that just like that right. There is foreshadowing the whole rest live and then we were saying we're like even if because we chose to back out of the offer. Obviously we were not happy going through with that. We were pretty bummed about it but also think about it like I would never feel comfortable sleeping. They're wondering what else is wrong with this house that we have no idea about like the ghost or underneath it was insane so. I've never talked about it because I think I was a little sad that it didn't work out but also very happy that it did not work out less looking back. I feel like it was just so stressful and so many signs were like no no no no as much as we wanted. It was perfect. Yeah so yeah you would be surprised. Real Estate's weird. I didn't know I I went straight from. My parents has to college to an apartment and then I moved from one apartment to the one. I'm in now and I've been in my apartment in La for three years which is like in La. I feel like people move around a lot more often. That was. I wasn't even expecting to be there for three years but I just love my unit so so much. It's so perfect every means home. Oh my God. It's so if you're like an apartment and it feels like your home exactly so special. It was like everything that I've ever wanted but then I started to have this issue about a year and a half ago where I was having trouble separating work from home yeah because my apartment is where I live and then I'd have my two employees. Come over every day and then they just be in my living room and then they'd leave and then I would still be in my living room and then I'd have to turn on the TV and carry on with my night. And I was never able to escape and the weird thing with our job as it isn't traditional nine to five so it's not like Oh work from nine to five done. It's like all over the place so that means sometimes at one. Pm You're not working. Yeah you know what I mean like waiting around to do something completely and so I decided then. It was time to get an office by when I looked into getting office spaces which I was still so settled West Hollywood. I'm no I'm not living in West Hollywood now because it was way too expensive and all the houses like I would love to but the houses were like fifty million dollars. Don't have fifty million dollars so I looked into office spaces and I was like well. This time. I still thought I was going to move to West and I was like okay. Let me get an office there just to see if I liked the area before like actually move everything over and I looked at office spaces and unfortunately in La most office spaces are like for three hundred people. Every office space. I looked at was like four. A large group you're literally like renting out entire floor of a building or there's like the we works or the places where it's basically a whole company where you can go and run out a little cubicle. The Wing Brooke does that went out to like. There's a lot of those working spaces but then I can't film there. Yeah imagine you're trying to get a banana invitation meeting and like there's some annoying like hey guys welcome back to my today. No you can't wagner exactly so I ended up getting a new apartment. Yeah for just to have as an office and I got it in West. Hollywood loves the area and it was such an incredible experience and it was so good because I was finally able to physically separate work and home but I've also learned that that is a lot of money that you're just throwing down the drain that's too literally two apartments that I have. Yeah so by getting risk getting often not at all good I would say I think it was a good move to. I learned so much. I think I wouldn't have been able to go another year and a half working out at my home so it was. It was expensive. It was a pretty penny and I learned and I'm glad that I like I. Did everything correctly. Like I. I went like Brent Month to month as soon as I even thought about getting out. Yeah so that I wouldn't have to be locked into land lease or anything so Getting the houses perfect because I'm able to divide everything better. It's still going to be obviously having like work at home. But I'M GONNA keep work in a separate room and things like that and there's more space now. Yeah well I mean that's why I got such a big house because I knew it would also be my office and with keeping that in mind. How much room there is. It's still hard to separate things so really imagining your apartment like a two bedroom that you're life that's so much smaller. I it makes sense like you're not going crazy if anyone would is just very very hard to do that. And it's crazy. 'cause that's yeah that's why. I got my house because I was like okay. We can have room for an office Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. Yeah but they're still days. I'm like Oh it'd be so nice to like go to the office. You know I agree but yeah and then and then a huge other proto. Getting a house was being able to deduct part of it for tax for my five bedroom house. I am paying less than my two rents. It's in every month. It is stupid. I should have done this a long time ago. But I'm glad that I learned obviously and did everything to this. Timing's always perfect. But I feel like little things like that you don't think about you're like oh. I I can deduct like a lot of this little thing it's just it becomes the actual investment and that's why real estate is a huge investment option. While I was telling my aunt I kind of wish like before doing the office. I had just moved to a house before that would have cut my downtown living by your at half and then my aunt was like well. You have to think about it this way. You wouldn't like so much of my life has changed in a year and a half by living in downtown. All as a person as a person I grew I wouldn't cal. Has He lived really close to me and like that was like a distance thing on hand. Yeah like that like so much would have been different American. I'm I'm okay no Yuppie. Oh my God. Oh that's exciting. I'm literally so excited for the moving blogs your closet. I'm just exciting for so for and I'm excited live closer to each other. I excited. That can't wait okay so just to kind of like give you guys like mental image here. Ballpark idea. Whatever like let's say you have a million dollars K surprisingly that will not get you far. You can't even get a Condo in downtown for a million dollars. It's an I'm over. Saddest show shelby and Monica church whenever they do those videos of what rank gets you in San Francisco is or Seattle. Or what two thousand dollars rent gets you in New York versus l a like those are so interesting to me and I think anyone who's considering moving to La should definitely watch those videos because you would be so shocked at what. What like three thousand dollars of your rent gets you actually like? It feels like a lot or even a million dollars for a house like literally. I was looking into Santa Monica before we ever decided to place I looked it was literally like a shack like this house was so small because Sam because one of the most expensive places to live literally I was just like okay cool. We're not gonNA live. There was just so unbelievably expensive. I really wanted to live by the beach because I love the beat. Yeah but I quickly realized I was like I can just get so much more for my money. And if this is an investment like will be further from the west side totally okay but it's it's insane even just in different areas of La. Like I mean I mean I remember when I moved to. La From College. I was so sad on Santa Monica. Yeah that's all I wanted to do was live out there and I couldn't afford it. I wanted a one bedroom and I think the right. I don't even remember how much but I couldn't afford it and I was. I was GONNA live paycheck to paycheck. I like I'll be fine and she's like you're not doing that. I'm not letting you do that so I moved a little farther from the beach and I was able to do that. But it's crazy because a million dollars will get you a house in a lot of places. I really honestly. I want to move to Dallas one day because you can get a huge mansion for a million dollars growing up. I always heard so many like family. Friends would move from school and to be like. We're moving my parents. Want TO LEAVE CALIFORNIA. Like why would anyone ever? WanNa Leave California. It's the best state which I mean I still am born and raised loved it. Love it so much definitely Kelly girl but now I kind of get it. What I'm you know being you're paying for like everything down here but thinking of a lot of my friends you know where I grew up like a lot of them also want to move to Texas or they move like Tennessee or Nashville are like what like you know. They're just trying to get out because it's like with her. You know teachers salary. They can't afford to live here because the taxes are so like so much like I get why it's so expensive now and I'm just like this is stupid especially when you know. I don't know it's just like it's steph lives in Dallas. She's a teacher out there but she grew up in Santa Monica. Okay and she was crazy. Her friend named Emma is so sweet she lived. She grew up in Santa Monica. In like at this crazy cross section of like I dunno some really big really fancy area of Santa Monica like right by the beach but her dad owned like oh small shack like it wasn't like a super nice house but because of all the building going around it and because of the location it was worth three million dollars two bedroom shack area and it makes sense. Because it's like that's what happens when the neighborhood also goes up you know like the evaluation. It was crazy everyone. She told me that I didn't realize that Santa Monica was so expensive everywhere in La is really really expensive but as you get further away from the beach. Yeah it gets a little bit less expensive except for West Hollywood which I wanted to live there. It was too expensive. Yeah no it's it's so interesting I feel like I think there's a lot of things I would have not done different but looking back. I'm like oh I didn't. I wasn't aware of how big of a deal. This was at the time I was like. I'm getting a house and I'm like Oh my gosh. Huge wave of youtubers got houses after you too. Yeah I think I don't know if I like inspired them to do that but I think it definitely caused people to be like. Oh wait like that is smart. I never thought that I could do it honestly also. I never pictured me in a house until I had a family especially even when we were moving out of Orange County. I was looking for three bedroom. Like the reason why I got a house in the first place was because I was looking at three bedroom apartments because I needed room for me. I needed room for Ashley and at that time I was really also trying to separate work and in my life so I was like I want a third room to be my office so I don't have ring lights and camera equipment in the living room blocking my view with the TV. Now when you look up a decent three bedroom apartment it was more than a house payment and. That's the only reason why I was like wait. Should we look at houses like it wasn't because I was like? Oh I want a house. It was because I was like wait. This is stupid. I'M GONNA keep this rent and all his money. So that's yeah that's kind of how that happened and yeah I think I think a lot of people are also like wait. That's actually smart. Like I can live in a house and not have to like have kids. You know But yeah interesting. When I was house on there were a few things that I definitely was looking out for specifically I always looked at the kitchen for sure. Also you taught me a lot about lighting. That was a big thing. I actually always would like kind of put off the whole idea of house. Hunting really scared me. And obviously it's a big investment. It's a little. The whole thing is just intimidating in itself but the lighting in my apartment is so great for the most part. I would always tell myself like. You'll never get this good of lighting when you move to a house but you taught me a lot about like walls and letting so. I looked out for that while you have to pay attention to the way that the house is just facing. Yeah little things like that. You don't even think about also I remembered that we Kinda told them the state till the end to hear about New Zealand. Oh I forgot up with that really quickly. Okay we I left them with. We gotTA bring it. He's only for God well. We're back so New Zealand if you missed the blog and you haven't listened to this podcast. I believe right at the beginning when we started this podcast in twenty eighteen. We left for a secret trip. We came back and we said Oh my God it was right after my date with turtle dude because I was talking to turtle doodle while I was called Kiwi. Even give it keys. I remember yacht. Turtle Dude was like a nature photographer or whatever. Yeah so we kept talking about all the animals. Oh my God what did time at a time. So basically we were both invited by. We can finally say it. We're not going to be killed Disney. We were invited by Disney to go to New Zealand to go to the beyond set for the new live. Action Movie Mulan. It was shelled on my block. I'm sure most of you have watched both. Are we have a whole whole blog footage? You guys can go see. That watch are vogue channels but it was insane and I hope he burnt down after two years of kept hearing about all of this but definitely watch the vox because we have like. It's so weird looking back on the footage that they gave us. It was so cool being onset like I to be on such a huge budget. Set like that like this is Disney like. They do not mess around. It was insane and I'm so excited to see the movie. I'm so excited I'll meet you. I think what's crazy is what I was looking back at the footage. Obviously it was an amazing experience. I had such a great time and I know that we've built this up for so long. It's kind of become like a joke but I think even more than that you and I at the time we're like running away from our problems and we there is so much going on in our personal lives that we just didn't even want to deal with so when we got this opportunity to go to New Zealand for like a week however long it was flat the world was that it was like three days. Yeah Oh my God we had enough time for. It was two days on set and then we saw Taylor swift at night. And I'm a God I count. The days are travel to so yeah like almost weakish. Whatever we I remember I was just so excited to just leave especially somewhere like New Zealand. It was just like a different there ever go to New Zealand and that was I mentioned in my blog. I reacted to the footage so I was like playing it and like looking out and stuff and I stopped it and I was just like. It's so weird because I always refer to old Aleisha and this is me starting McClellan. Hi Guys Oh my God. I'm so like this is crazy to be like. Oh my God I was very it was just me before I had my quarter life crisis slash. You know personal growth year and everything and it felt like I saw myself from five years ago and it wasn't even that long ago even though it was. Yeah it was so weird. I would agree. I think why we always. I think why that trip was so near and dear to our heart is because it was around a time where we We're just kind of going through the motions and going through it and now looking back we always think about that trip and being Taylor swift and just crying in the rain and it was just a good like it was just a good trip now also adding the fact that it was Disney and Milan. That was also just really such a cool opportunity but yeah I I mean I don't I don't know what to say about it. I don't know I think it was just crazy to like. Look back because at that time. That was a time in my life where I would cry like every night. Myself to sleep are cry anytime we went out or anything because I was so genuinely heartbroken over something in my life and that time I thought I would never get over it. It's so weird because I thought it was about a guy I thought I would never get over it. I thought that I was going to be like this forever. I thought I was going to have these trust issues and I saw this as an opportunity to like obviously do something really cool with Disney but also just like escape and not have to think about it and I thought that mean leaving would make me stop thinking about this guy. Make me stop thinking about everything going on in my life. And what's crazy is we've gone especially twenty eighteen. We went on. That was the year of traveling. We went in so many places. And it's so weird because yeah you think. Oh I'm GonNa go halfway across the world like they won't even be on my mind and it's so weird hair on your mind girl. You can literally be a physically across the entire world and like you still have the same problems. Yeah we tried to like run from them but like you couldn't you? Can they follow you and then even so when you come back home it almost like slingshots back because you've been like trying to avoid it but I think I looking back at the footage? I was so sad and in that time and I was trying to fake it and watching. It made me sad because I remember how I was feeling about everything and like every story. I'd taken like in hopes and checking. If he saw it every snapchat. Every are thank you next. We'd like to thank you next music. Video in the hotel. Like in my. I remember like everything going on in my head during that time and I thought that I'd never get over it and the narrow a year and a half ish later I literally have not thought about that guy in so long. I'm so fine I also don't have trust issues. I remember at the time. I think I was just so woe is me being like? I'm going to be damaged forever. I'm never GONNA get. Oh we got him so fine. I like I don't have any issues if I saw this guy be like. Hey hope you're doing well like that kind of stuff and I never thought I'd get to this point. Yeah so looking at that footage and knowing how I was feeling and then seeing how I feel really now. I was super proud. And what's weird though is if you were to know then I'll just give it a year and a half you'd be like oh I can do that. You don't know how they're going to be like it makes it ten times worse but yeah please go watch the vox because honestly the footage is is so interesting and like you guys are such a part of hearing about the New Zealand trip and stuff so yeah. I'm sure there's more stuff we can talk about that another upset but we have talked to your off this episode. We're going to end it here. Thank you so much for listening.

"Welcome back to technophobia the podcasts about a better future. John Biggs show. We have Willamette he's the founder of this is technical. Technophobe has also sponsored by cheap. Transcription dot IO, transcription offers ten cents per minute. Transcription using our happy, robots or eighty five cents per minute. Using our human assistance chief transcription I o is cheaper and faster than everyone else cheap. Transcription dot CO. Welcome back to technophobe the podcast about a better future. I'm John Biggs Taylor show. We have. We'll, I'm at he's the founder and CEO of whoop, which is a wearable, strap that, that makes you a superhuman right, right? Am I am I correct in that? Well, yeah. Idea. That'd be that'd be pretty cool, if we could get a conjecture ourselves with some, some kind of super human thing, VA strap. Why don't you tell me about the whoop? Well, mission is really to improve human performance, and we built a product that is primarily focused on measuring sleep and recovery and strain. So you wear the, the whoop sensor twenty four seven throughout the day, and it's going to give you feedback on how recovered your body is, whether you should be taking on more strain, less strain. It's going to measure the intensity of exercise until you, if you should push harder, you should stop. And then it'll even tell you how much sleep you need before you go to bed. So it's really a twenty four seven life coach for for high performers. Okay. So how does it what does it take to build something like that, obviously, have the technology, which is I guess it's fairly standard? Now, everybody's got a Fitbit on. But how do you how do you use some of the data that comes out of these devices properly? Well push back a little bit on that I think that there's actually a lot of novelty to the hard word self. I mean you have to you have to really create this balance when you're building hardware between the feature set and, and things like battery life, data collection. So what does that mean? So for example, whoop collects data at this outrageous, hurts level. So we're collecting about fifty to one hundred megabytes of data on a person per day. If we were a product like a Fitbit, or an apple watch, and we wanted to do a bunch of other things. So, for example, the apple watch can do phone calls, and has a high resolution screen, we just wouldn't be able to collect that much data. And because we're just focused on health improving hell all that data than improves our actor. Which then improves the algorithms that we can develop which then proves the coaching that we can ultimately deliver. So there's still a fair amount of nuance. I would say happening at the sensor level. And a lot of that goes back to what your overall mission is. If you're trying to give someone a better sense for their day and you wanna be a step counter? Then you can have a really long battery life, you can have, you know, other features like the ability to see apps on a smart watch. But if you wanna be able to really accurately, understand the body to build understand that someone's rundown, or dehydrated or hungover or sleep deprived or peaking physically. Then you need to build a monitor the body super accurately. And that's where our focus group is come in, and it's why we've gone from working with, you know, the best athletes in the world to now, a more mainstream consumer who wants to understand their body. So what is what goes into a building a piece of hardware like this right now? It's what, what did you guys have to do it? What did you have to change? Well, headed terrific team. I think that's helped a lot, you know, we, we started the business out of out of the Harvard innovation lab in the first thing that we wanted to be able to do. This was in two thousand twelve actually the first thing, one Bill due to measure heart rate variability accurately from the wrist. So previously, Harvard variability was identified in medical literatures statistic that could predict heart attacks for former atrial fibrillation patients. It was a statistic that was used by the CIA to detect if you're lying, and it was a statistic used by Olympic powerlifters to see if their body was rundown. I came at this from the background of being a an athlete myself. I was playing squash was at Harvard. So I was pretty interested in, how could I better understand my own body, and I was someone used over train? So all of a sudden, this idea that I could measure something like heart rate variability, that would give me a lens into the status of my body. That was pretty interesting. And so the first thing that we wanted to, to see doom is. Is to measure variability accurately from the wrist and do it twenty four seven and that would affectively be able to give us all this information on your body, previously, you needed a electrocardiogram, you know, the machine that you find in hospitals very expensive machine to be able to measure, hurry, variability. So today, I'm happy to say that we, we measure that very accurately, but that was the, the core focus from day. One is Hettie measured, the statistic accurately. So it's focused on them. What's, what's next for this sort of technology? It seems like it seems like this is changing almost every day in terms of what we can pull out of the human body. Wasn't broadly speaking, you're going to get to a place where technology understand your body better than you. Right. It's interesting that I can look at my computer right now. And have all this feedback about my computer's battery life. It's performance it's memory. But if I just look at my body in the mirror. I don't necessarily know that much about what's going on, and with whoop, what we're trying to do affectively. Create this this concept of, of the battery life for your body. Right. What level my at today, do I need to be charged or, or can I expect some battery life, and I think over time, but that's gonna allow humans to do is just be way more productive. And to be way, healthier, because the realities their secrets that your body's trying to tell you that you can't feel the side that you can feel whether or not you're ready for something, or you can feel whether or not. You're getting sick or or your rundown is often not the case, there's, there's core indicators that can suggest the status of your body. And I think over time that, that, that's gonna be pretty exciting from the from the potential of. How can we make someone more optimal? Okay. So I mean what is it? What does that look like we does does our do our systems, basically tell us what to eat what to what to drink? That sort of thing. Oh, certainly, I mean, I think that from a coaching standpoint, you'll be able to know exactly what are the right things to put in your body in the wrong. You'll know really what's the perfect recipe of things for you to improve. I mean, we're already doing that to some extent today with the a lot of our high end athletes where they'll, you know, they'll input everything about what they're eating drinking different supplements. They're taking recovery tools. They're using ice bat location, tanks, meditation on the question is, what's the perfect recipe for you? What's the recipe for John to be optimal? And by the way, that varies a lot, right? Like the reason there's ten thousand diets there isn't one diet for everyone. And, and so to be able to give feedback on Haiti's of the things that you should be putting your body. And these aren't these are the behaviors that are good for you. And the behaviors that are bad for you. I think just bringing a lot more. Data to that conversation. First and foremost, you know, the layer on top of it is to be able to tell someone exactly what to do. I mean, I would I would love us situation where I'm basically my, my wrist basically says here, eat the eat this right now drink this right now. Hey, what are you doing? Put down that beer that kind of stuff. I mean it's seems a little bit. Seems a little bit. Kind of treat us like babies, but, I mean we're definitely not doing a good job feeding feeding training our selves without without any help. Well, I think it will look back on the fact that every human wasn't monitoring sleep as the stone age, and I certainly came at this from one of you of an athlete originally. And the fact that all athletes, especially once for serious aren't measuring their sleep is pure insanity. I mean that'll be looked back on, like, like baseball players smoking in the dugout. The reality is, there's so much you can learn from that I think sleep is just so so so important because it's this magical period of time where your body is recovering growing in everyone thinks he gets stronger in the gym yet. Get stronger in the gym you break your muscles down. You get stronger during slowec sleep, which is when your body produces ninety five percent of its human growth hormone. So if you're trying to if you're trying to put on muscle as an example, the, the amount of time that you. Worring about what you're doing the gym should not be greater the amount of time that you spend worring about how much slower sleep, you're getting something that will measures, you know, the same committee for Remm sleep. If your wrestler is your, your brain is recovering. Right. And so if you're trying to perform a high level trying to form in your daily, cognitive life, you need to be getting a lot of Remm sleep. So then that begs the question will, what are all the things that I can do to get more slowly sleep to get more Rhames sleep? Right. And again, that goes back to one very optimistic about the future from a health standpoint, you're going to be able to get coached on had to do these things. Look, they were already doing a lot of that at will. Are there have you seen anything in terms of being able to induce a deeper sleep better sleep any systems that you've seen? Well, there's a lot of general lifestyle things that are out there commonalities across humans. So one is that you generally wanna have a really really dark room, you generally wanna have a really cold room. You know, you, you want to avoid looking at devices or blue light emitting screens before you go to sleep. I find that wearing a ask helps a lot. And then another thing that's interesting is going to bed consistently going to bed and waking up at the same time every night is actually more important than the amount of Daration you get. So that's kind of a life hack. If you want to figure out how you can get by on six or seven hour sleep, you try to go to bed. Wake up at exactly the same time every night, there was a study from the nationalist to help on one hundred students and they looked at sleep consistency verse leap duration how correlated with GPA and they found that if you if you got more more sleep, it was actually less important than if you were going to bed and waking up at a consistent time in terms of how it affected the students. GPA. At we then ran that analysis across, like ten million data sets ten million sleepiq data sets, we found that indeed the people who were going to bed and waking up at a more consistent time, had higher heart rate variability in low arresting heart rates and faster recovery's. So that's now something that in our sleep coach within the w- bap, we provide feedback on. We tell you when we think you should go to bed and wake up based on your recent behavior for going to bed waking up. And by the way, that gets even more interesting when you start adding timezones and travel, because those are other things that humans do that they need to be more optimal around. So in terms of in terms of jetlag and stuff, basically to, to give that advice, how, I mean, think about the number of important decisions that are being made today by people across the world that are, you know, people who are jet lagged. Could those decisions be more effective? If those people weren't jetlagged, right? Have a number of decisions being made by people who are hung over right? So that's, that's very optimistic about the future because we've already seen it whoop if you can if you can show someone the behaviors that are good for them or bad for them, you can actually create a behavior change. One example, is we see people drink dramatically less alcohol after they've been on for four months. Seventy nine percent reduction in reporting alcohol consumption, and the reason for that is you can dramatically. See how negative alcohol is on your body's recovering your body sleep. Now, if you go in ask anyone and you say, hey, you think alcohol's good for your covering sleep? They'll say no. But all of a sudden, when you've got data against it in its showing to transparently every day, it induces, a behavior change, so that that's again while I'm pretty optimistic about the future in any think the details. Around coaching humans to do more. Optimal are quite exciting. What are these tools, look like in twenty years? I think I think the, the feedback that I'm pro that I'm describing is probably the same. Right. It's just a question of what the mechanism is that you're receiving that feedback today? Most feedback is given through a, a cellphone, right? So I think this is a bigger question for what's the next platform than it is really, what the future of health is the future of health is just being able to be coached on everything that you do in a preventive way. Right. Curative medicine is so much more expensive than preventative medicine and to be able to prevent someone for making bad decisions to encourage them to make good decisions that to me is the future of health. So you'll know the effect of something that before you put it in your body. You'll know exactly your battery life for the day, you'll know all the infrequent, and you'll get credit for doing those things in terms of, how that feedbacks deliver it could be screens could be glad. Passes could be a, you know, voice automation. You know, that, that I think is more of a just a general technology question of what's the next flap? Platform as is the smartphone thing in twenty years will probably be a different platform, where where you're, you're seeing that feedback delivered more important thing, though, is what that feedback is. And, and I think that's what's going to be quite powerful. Okay. What kind of what kind of performance improvements? Have you had since since you started doing all this stuff? A lot of it's been around things to improve sleep. We talked a little bit about it. Colder room darker room sleep mask, to take melatonin which, which helps you fall asleep a little bit faster. It's fairly natural supplement linked to take magnesium, which is typically also recovery's those things that do before bed. I, I try to go to bed and wake up at, at consistent times when I'm doing a quick trip from the east coast to west coast back, try to stay on the east coast time zone that goes back concept of sleep, consistency. And then, you know from a from a recovery standpoint, there's certain products that use of exercising a lot that I that I see improve my body, one of the really good for creating blood flow in your legs. It's like a, a massaging tool that I that I would recommend. I do a little bit of cryotherapy, although I'm generally skeptical of of its overall results. I'm a big fan of cold showers, so cold showers at try to take two or three day and I wouldn't Boston, so those can be quite cold. And I think I think cold showers improve your alertness. They create a natural mood enhancement, and an also 'cause her body to burn more calories throughout the day. So I'm a big believer in cold showers. Even some evidence to support that improves your immune system of a little skeptical that. From diets, damn point, I probably haven't changed my diet, that traumatically. I drink a wad of water. I think that's something that's really important for recovery. In general, good health from an exercise standpoint, I still play squash, competitively. But I know, for example, because of whoop that playing squash is much more strenuous on my body than say, weightlifting or going for a run. So this was back to the idea of a coach. When I wake up in the morning, whoop tells me how recovered I am if my body's a little more run down. I won't play squash because I know that that's going to put more stress on my body. My body's ready for whereas if, if I do have a lower recovery, I'll do something like like yoga go for a run even weightlifting because I know that those those things put less stress on my body, so the stuff. But you get the idea. Yeah. Sounds like a sounds like it's it's helped a lot. How do you how do you separate the how do you separate the bad ideas from the good ideas? In what context? Well, I mean you guys everybody's everybody's telling you to go Kito on then do this, and then do this like you got exercise. I don't know forty five seconds day five special exercises. And then, then you, then you're gonna I don't know lose five hundred pounds almost immediately and there's so much, there's so much competing information. How do you separate out the stuff? That's real. Well, I think the key is self experimentation you know, that's what's that's again is what is so exciting out the future to collect. The argue body is you can start to identify okay. What's the result of thirty days of blank on my body? So I got into transcendental meditation turns out dramatically improved how have fast I fall asleep, and my resting heart rate throughout the day. Okay. So I, I now can see the positive result. Bolts of that on my body? You know, alcohol's a good example, where I know when I was certain number of drinks within a couple hours of, of bed, it's going to negatively impact my slow wave sleep chef. It's not to say never drink alcohol. It's just that now I haven't awareness of what that does to my body, and I think the same things I'm describing apply to all of these different ideas out there. So you wanna go Pedo okay go Kito for two weeks. But, but monitor what was the status of your body before, Kito? What's the status of deer? Anyone's the says it after and to some degree. That's why would working with professional athletes as our foundation was so interesting because professional athletes are actually very good at, at doing these AB tests on their body. They're constantly trying to figure out how can I get a point one percent edge on the competition? And so that's why so many of these. Weird concepts like cryotherapy and an even weird diets they actually start in athletic level and make their way to the mainstream people forget, like thirty years ago. Professional athletes didn't really lift weights. You know that was like a that was a non started in the nineties. And now you can't go to a hotel in America doesn't have a gym. So, you know, I'm generally excited about how fast humanity can evolve when it sees things that work, and I think that again, self experimentation is, is where this can be a quite impactful. Sounds great. So we're gonna send folks to dot com to W H, O P, pick a abandoned become superhuman. Yeah. We just launched our generation three product, it's got a five day battery life. It's a new stretchy, comfortable sturdy band. It's bluetooth compatible so connects to other products. And it comes now with a with a strain coach that's gonna coach through workouts. So tell you when to keep going to stop, it's got a video function. -ality so you can actually record video videos of yourself, working out or. Otherwise, I with whoop data overlaid on top, which is quite cool. And you'll be able to stream dated other products, whether it's peleton or straw or whatever you may use. So it's an exciting time to get on. All right. Very cool. We'll thank you for joining me on Topi. This has been some interesting stuff. Thanks. John cruciate, it, this has been the Topi.

"The rambles guys. We have one wild for you get ready pretty basic. Hey guys what is up. It is runny and it's alicia and we are coming to you yet again from the couch with the squish mallows. I love them. We are here to intro the episode. Today i will be honest. I left this recording thinking. You know it's okay you can can keep some things to yourself to do really i.

Today's episode is a collab- pot. What time it is our very first pod. Swap very exciting. If you guys don't know when to podcasters have podcast and they wanna you know. It's like a lab but a pod. Swap is the proper terms for the podcasts world. Live love laugh. Pod live love laugh pod swap basically if you guys are fans of the diy queen herself lord diy. She has a podcast with her boyfriend. Jeremy lewis jaber. We love lauren. We love dare and we were so excited to do this episode and today's episode. We thought would be the perfect time.

Come on and answer some questions. But we we've never talked to an actual x. Faulk boy also. I don't even have that many. Like straight guys in my life. And jeremy marks like my third friend and one of them includes cal so it was interesting to get inside a straight guy's head of why a guy might do something whether he had already personally felt that before himself or just knowing friends or whatever so it was really funny so definitely buckling send to someone who you feel like might need it. No context just sends the episode left. Just give them a time stamp. Also we did indeed again record an episode over on wild till nine and they did also film it. We are working on videos pretty basic coming. I'm not gonna say soon. Because i'm not sure when they're coming and i wanna say we are going to work on them though but if you guys want to watch the video then watch over on the wild till nine youtube channel and jeremy we love you.

But we are finally doing a crossover pod because they have a podcast. We got a podcast pretty basic listeners. We dare i say we did do an episode about fuck boys a few months ago. we did. Well we've done A couple that are a little reminiscent of what we wanna do. Today we have done episode on fuck boys which we didn't take. We didn't need take advice from mental which we don't think that was a representation. Yeah knowing the magazine the magazine shirt was taught. We found articles. Because we don't have any straight guy. I should have consulted. You know what we were in a treat because today live we have a real life ex much better and fuck boy start new. No okay i just before like an all seriousness. Jimmy was an xbox boy. Now recovered i think. I think it's really an episode title recovering.

I'm just gonna be less vulgar okay filters in love so far. How do we feel like we're not being vulgar. Lauren used to do crafts about dick. Nothing real quick. You describe me. And i'll describe you love it okay. Jeremy is an ex frat presidents who can also randomly sing disney prints out a small stint on reality tv doing acapella in like a whole group like not just germany we occupy la but like a whole ask acapella means a group. Oh it doesn't mean a group. I don't think one person can do it all. You're right right because you need multiple voicing we confirm everyone's wrong but anyway acapella just means without backing instrumental tracks zooms. 'cause we can't do voices only okay got you okay. Anyway had a small stand reality. Tv an capella group. Everything college every time you do this. It's like great. You've taken us a two thousand and thirteen. I'm getting there. I'm giving people a recap a lot of layers and you're like an onion. Lots of layers them back. Yeah pill them back so got. We've got a reality tv. We used to have a singer. I'm getting to the next onion layer. Stop rushing me and then working music for a little bit and now you work in tech and now you're and boyfriend on the wild till nine podcast. My greatest accomplishment today and moose's dad. Well that's going to piss off a well you know we're not here to entertain relationships. That are five years old. So go my god wait for tiger beat depict the fourteen jim. You're hot relooking at uga fourteen looking you're gonna do my intro now would you want me to do. Yeah baby gas me up. Gas and of course. I know the gas new challenges for the listeners. At home it's just a time where you give someone in your life little gas you up section while you're filling your car up with gas on cultured on alicia marie blogs in case you watch it subscribe. I know you watch every single block. You know anytime. i'm guessing up my car wallets. It's filling up all vlog. And i'll pick someone in my life to shout out and just hype them up so it's like the gas you nickname for us. Morton ashton ashton marie to be exact exotic. She's a marine lauren. Just awkward segue Or as lauren likes to call it is due. And for those who know that. Real ones lauren is. I always describe as the creative director of her own. Life and sarcasm is coming no zero sarcasm here and i would say that. She's in the middle of a bit of a transition phase. But we knew her. The last eight years is the craft girl now whereas the crap girl who fox i love with that is that it i will. I will accept that as my intro. I mean realistically if you went to to learn more than had number well tonight and subscribe button. Euler more wow. Hbo max cannot pull that. Plug away bogey trouble you. It'd be ov accomplishments. It'd be to our podcast so fuck boys today. We're going to talk about okay now. I really want to know when eletion. I started the pod a couple years ago. It was i. I always think about the one meeting that we had that was with our team. About what happens if you guys get into a fight. What happens if like this happens. How has it been thus far starting a business together as a in a relationship and also have there been any roadblocks us far. Go me i was the number one thing that we've learned. Is that like if one of our energies is off on filming day. We just need to abandoned like the recording that day. And i'm sure you guys it's the same thing for you guys to it's like it doesn't matter if you're a relationship but like if one of us is not feeling the vibe it's going to be a shitty ass podcast don't try and save it. There's no point in like saving like that recording that day like it's not worth the emotional bullshit that comes along with like one person. They need a shoulder for the other one. What's crazy is there. There's been plenty of episodes where one of us will leave afterwards specifically more like pre covid when we are in the studio and one of us would kind of have to carry the episode more but we just nearly going through it. However we also don't live together so i felt like it also made it easier to be like okay. We're going to do this. You know maybe remm had to carry the episode. Because i was in a mood or something like that. But then it's like okay. We go home and debrief and kind of like you know. Get it together but like living together too. I feel like that has to make it even more living together and in a pandemic meaning. You don't leave. Yeah so. I can see how it's like more important to be like you know we're not even gonna go there like let's just not i will say what's interesting about. Lauren is that she has this like uncanny natural ability to make business decisions faster than anyone that i know probably chanted and this is the real gasser up so when you're the not cool not i have no in the situation like realistically i'm one coming in. Who has a job in tech. She's the one that comes in. This is what she does. She's she has massive audience and was interesting when we started like the quote unquote business quite onset When we started the business like everyone on lawrence team told her to take fifty one percent and give me forty nine. And i also said yeah. That's fine and lauren. No we're not doing that. It's fifty fifty. You business to business i it to her own detriment almost as sense that she's like she was the one fighting for this. What she felt was fair which i see But not everyone would do that. Yeah yeah and. She came to the decision by herself and was like we're gonna do this. I think also we have a good working relationship in that. Like the things that i'm good at like the creative side of like doing like the thumbnails and design assets that stuff like i handle that and then when it comes to tech. I don't know how to press a single button on anything we do. On tech related stuff and jerry picks up where i leave off. Do all of my biggest weaknesses are her biggest guys wanted the t there and unfortunately i think that's i mean we haven't had any that either i mean our contract. There's a clause. I remember being so scared seeing it for the first time it was like they are to have a friendship break-up and blah blah blah blah blah blah. And you're like what does this mean but like it makes sense but but yeah that's so interesting. Oh my god and also like we sat down in the most nerdy of ways before we like actually started this thing and listed out like what is our number one priority is making money or is it being happy together. Yeah and it was being having together. He basically said like if there's ever like shift network money than just stop talking. Abandon as you guys know. We like to be different. And we're unique pieces that no one else has and a great place you guys can find coup pieces and a ton of different styles is courtesy.

We'd like to talk about the history of you to do the hand motion that you wanted what we'll get there a little a little preface to you. How long have you been together now. Forever it feels like around one isn't it was two something two years in something it's two years something tell podcast. Probably you're into dating dan. Oh we know and a half we we took. It took us like ninety five years to get all of the start up stuff so i would say over year and a half before. Is that right. do this wrong. You wanna go go no. Lauren had a quarter life crisis. New year's eve of twenty nineteen go into two thousand twenty. Yes and then. She decided she wanted to start. A podcast talks about penis with her boyfriend. And here i am who else you filed for an llc in february of last year okay. I'm called bright. Swipe because we wanted to call the show the right. Swipe the puck got the book came back and said if you wanna go against like match group and everybody else. This is a great way to do that. 'cause tender owns the rights white and so it took six months after under does tender and are both fighting over the trademark swipe and so even we were versus of that. It's like it was just got a book this whole tone dinner because that's a separate different categories trademarking so they weren't actually the issue. It was bumble and tender. New massive conglomerates in like the media space that there's just no world where we could afford lawyers to go up against them and maybe just like too lazy like now so while tonight so and the miserable months later in august of last year. We started so episode. Okay that's okay. Awesome never shared that part of the story. i. I was thinking about people at home. Who are thinking out our podcast. And they hear llc's trademarks. Wait war. 'cause obviously you don't have to like trade market but especially because we're all doing other business things when you actually think about longevity or if you wanna have a book with their if you want to have spin-offs early shows like that is important which is crazy to think about because it's so much more than just a podcast. Okay actually i can. I complain yes. Please go off babe. it's about you. oh go. don't you it sucks about having a bad girlfriend Okay if i wanted to start a podcast with one of my friends it would cost you. Know what whatever it costs to you. Know a couple of weeks and recorded. push it out. Because we're not suing lauren. Because she's like this multi million dollar brand that just fucking killing it like. She has to protect any and everything that she doesn't our business. Ooh like it costs a ton of money like set it up the right way quote unquote trying to say is make sure to click all of our ads in the videos because we still haven't made a single dollar point is like working with you. Track of a ton of success actually very difficult to get messy and difficult and there's so many different parties involved between like lawyers trademark lawyers business managers managers entre anthrax. It's so much more work than anyone at home. If you're the star one difference between passion project in an actual business. Yeah so that's my complaint by the fact that you're obviously great. I'm annoying yeah. I get it your words. Why is there a hook coming out of your ceiling. I had a hanging chair there. And then that was that was boho alicia. You've stage to. Yes not as much but i did learn is still getting under boho stage. No i would say we're out. Well okay we're out. Yeah yeah we're not about putting a disco ball there. Oh turn my living room into a club. Hope it is long gone. I will well. We gotta get the hug your right. Yeah okay. sorry that's not good for anyone at home on the audio side but at least it has like eight a heavy duty fucking hook out of her ceiling Mitchell there'd be middle. It'll hold seven if you were left rich editing. this is having a field day. Okay but now thinking about the fact that lauren. You've had a public relationship before. I know we don't talk about it but we don't talk about exciting. How was were you nervous when you guys talked about starting a podcast because that's still putting something public with a significant other one hundred okay. So i've explained this before a few times until i feel like i really nail down like the semantics of it so when you have a relationship that is very vlog based especially daily blogs and this happens like subconsciously feel like maybe now for some creators. They're like doing it on purpose but like when we were blogging. So much of my past relationship you actually create this narrative that gives off like the perfect relationship. Yes and you create these like crazy. High standards and expectations for what are what are really hours. Every morning well. I remember the backyard. Snow that no. Luckily that was a brand deal. And i think we ended up studying. Sound like you're describing the plot division right now like you're creating a false create a false narrative and again whether it's conscious or subconsciously you create this false narrative and so like when it just it just sets the standards wrong for everyone that's watching and everyone that is also in a relationship or like. Why isn't it this perfect and so like i got outta that being like i will never do that again. It's not healthy for me. It's healthy for the relationship. It's not healthy for viewers. So i think like what's majorly different about doing. The podcast with jeremy is that we're having real ass conversations that are not so much based around our relationship like obviously we share like funny stories and stuff but it's our opinions on things that matter usually. I mean we don't talk about like vulgar stuff that it's more just like entertainment base but even if we were to break up nothing would change about the things that we had potentially given advice about or spoken to. I love that. Yeah so it's just like it's just a totally different dynamic that if we were to break up tomorrow i wouldn't regret any of the things that we had set on the podcast. I love that anything. Add on that. That was perfect. I think also to add to that back when you were vlogging obviously we knew you when you were blogging your daily blogs and then we know you now and your core values and like what you talk about on the podcast. I thought you would have said years ago to. It's just that you felt like you got to yourself which we talk about all the time how we've found like art quarter life crises where we're like. Oh my god we want to share more of ourselves. And that's how we. I feel like i was able to finally talk about anything like sexually it or anything like that on this podcast and i never would have talked about it on youtube. So it's cool to see that through your podcast as well. You're able to open up more about yourself but like you as a person haven't changed. Yeah honor present. And i think the disconnect for so many viewers to is like they would catch tiny glimpses of like what i was actually like. And then they'd see this like fake narrative of like these daily blogs around like screaming acting like a fucking sixteen year old. And then now everyone's like oh. You are normal. You're having sex. Oh my god like if you don't even like it's just it. Just i feel like i finally got to like meet. My brand funding got to keep like match. What i was held up catching up. That's exactly how it feels. Oh my god okay fast. Forwarding you meet a guy you heard. He has a past. We're talking about now. How that you know. What i i think that a lot of guys need to go through a phase like i think it's i think everyone does. So that's what we are going to be talking about. In today's episode everyone buckle and insert the ad here. Whatever you know what we're going through it got some popcorn maybe tag. Now's the time you should texas episode to a friend. I know you're thinking about someone there. Is someone in your mind. Or you're like damn they need to hear this. I'm thinking about them. I'm gonna send this to them. Not the fuck boy a friend who needs it. you know someone who's been personally victimized. Why did you know by jeremy. By a fuck boy. Yeah they're not synonymous at all. Yeah ok okay but going back to your question. I think that there are so many guys particular anything grossly this to but for some reason. I think it's an ego thing for a lot of guys where they need to run through a ho phase for my god through sprint to be through a hotel as the or maybe the long distance. I don't know whatever whatever you need to do to get that out of your system. I feel like a marathon sprinted. The marathon though sprinted the mcrae it was a long time and it was fast and fast. Okay so i would love to talk about. Not just we'll we'll get to the depths of it all but what's the journey the curfew now like. Where does the start of the fuck boyd stage at home. I want you to look at least it's got this great hand move. She's petting exotic cat exotic rolling hill. What do you lean hills. We're just gonna be putting you on blasts entire episode. I hope that's history. I have done an episode with cow. Before where i asked him some of these questions that we will be asking you. Listen to that episode. Sweet pal had no answers whatsoever. But here's the thing. I think cal has an answer for guys who didn't go into this phase with as much of an agenda What was your agenda was. One of my questions is earning because cow did indeed have a ho phase. But i can definitely tell you like even if yours and his numbers were the same. It would've still been different right. So what was your agenda. Have as much fun. In whatever capacity until i didn't wanna do anymore now. Was that a conscious decision or did you just one day. Notice like oh. This is what i'm doing. I think it wasn't a conscious. And like i am now going to have sex. I think it was like okay. Everyone remember listening in the room the first before your first kiss The idea of kiss was like a mountain to climb. But then when you had a kiss before i like what i think you're about to say i like keep going. She's i'm holding my breath like you're like oh i i'm also thinking about my high school boyfriend right now. Same literally same show. Joey kill him office getting high joy. He's a big pretty basic by fans. Hey joey subscribe but you dip your toe in the pool and you like that and you just kind of keep doing it but you don't realize that you're doing it a lot and it's consuming part of your life until you're already on autopilot dude. Fuck boys in particular aren't like going out to like i'm gonna ruin lives. They're doing what they think is fun for themselves and not take into consideration anybody else's feelings while they're doing it but sometimes you need to just fucking like stop someone in their tracks and go. What you're doing is hurting other people until they actually hear that and think about it then. Everybody like given an energy that i think not to defend the boys of the world because like not focused. That's yeah that's what i'm saying. Screw them But i think that some people need to go through that selfish phase and whether that looks like having a sprint through a ho phase or just like taking time to do with whatever they need to do like i feel like some people need that like selfish period to just do what's best for them and like unfortunately i think that means like running through other people's lives and like messing stuff up fun until someone gets hurt however like no one i feel like most people don't intentionally go into it wanting to hurt exactly. Then you're there and you're like oh shit but do you think i feel like when i've had my past experiences with said fuck boys. They knew what they were do. I know i know you. Okay but i think we got situation was because it was like a more long-term but boy situation i feel like that was more strategic. I think he was more like psychopath. Level then like In bed with me. Non nuoc i know. I think that's scenario because it was more long-term fuck boiling throwing romy in different directions the entire time. But i was like on a psychopath level yet but i think some dudes have i think you're conflating. Fuck boy and being a ho friend. Emotionally unavailable emotionally unavailable but also like the his interest Probably more interested in feeling like he was in control of the situation. One as a fuck you solving my years of trauma with one cent printed in framed. Sign above my bed. I turn on for cal every night. Stand know cal. Is it not no way will. I can confirm when i was in the height of my fuck boy phase. I just liked having sex in fucking around and getting drunk and doing whatever like in fact the thought of being in control of a situation made me feel like i had a little bit more. Like part of it which actually wouldn't have been interesting to me. Like i just wanted to go do more what i was already doing that. Guy coming back and wanting to test the water every single time. He felt kind of like slipping away. That's a whole nother. Can of fucking power ego thing. He was in love with me is what you're saying. He was insecure. Needs therapy therapy therapy okay. So so far. We've definitely distinguish. There are different kinds of fuck boys so just wanna fuck around have sex. Don't care ones that are emotionally unavailable and are playing with your feelings for control. It's probably avoid thrown childhood. We need to make a graphic graphic that goes on the thing that are is this you yes no. Ven diagram was unavailable. Fuck boy that just wants to have sex two three yes they all meet in the middle yes. I'm well according to my men's health. Article that i did indeed mentioned earlier. They describe fuck boy as a boy is all about getting his dick wet. True or false. That's true true absolutely true. Oh yeah i mean. It's not false. I think back to the emotionally unavailable guy. The end goal was only to have sex. That was it. I fuck boy. That guy to the sacramento. Got it i mean. How long did this go on too long to baby. Probably like a year. Okay and do you know if he was doing this to other people as well non-confirmed before a long time i would bet money now that's a whole nother can of worms shit okay. There's layers so clearly. They're smarter than we give them credit for. No no. we're not only smarter than you give them credit for we. It's time and is jeremy. And i was definitely affect. I think the year long thing with you that to me is like because if you're are fucked boy you don't care you don't you wouldn't care enough about somebody else's like keeping somebody else's attention and feelings would you listen to my podcast when i dropped it for the first three episodes including the ads and then text me about them not for experience totally arbitrary experienced. Didn't actually happen. Probably that's weird. That's control now. Yeah he would. That's so foreign to me. I mean that just means that there's either it's like feelings and or like ego wanting to hear about themselves. But like i would even go so far to say the the women that i think in the past that i whether it's an accident or not like hurt their feelings by the way that i acted. I'm so ashamed of that. I almost want to pretend never interact or hear about anything with them again. Embarrassed because i. I feel like i fucked up. So the fact that he's coming back to this in hearing and listening trying to engage with you. There's a void there that that dude needs to go fucking get some therapy to talk about elise face right now. Five moving. and maybe you can use Better help maybe. We have a coupon code. Wild nine actually look nine and hopefully that helps you. Thank you so much. That's my thoughts and if it's actually listening just take a fucking moment. I would really fucking hope. I don't think so. Yeah but i mean. Honestly i feel bad. Because he's in. He does not have the tools to get out of it. Head space okay. So if anyone's listening and there is a guy you've been talking to for over a year and you feel like this applies to them. It's most likely a control thing. We cannot confirm that but just from our guest come off. Unc what they do because the that guy's co like the thing that guys are really good at doing is like trying to like financial and just finesse their way back into scenario and they selected losing control and you cut them off and make it very clear that you're not interested in anymore and they continue to search after it you know It's not a fuck boy. It's void of just absolute fucking control and power and so much bigger ramiz like got the the equations flying overhead right. Now i'm the woman protect yourself what's puts distance between okay is solely hsieh's open trying to get into the dating scene a little more and i don't know if you've match with someone before on a dating app but i always get so weird about sharing my phone number with them but i wanted to move the conversation from the app to something next like attacks combo but i don't wanna give up my number. I've talked about tax. Now before. You guys i i use this and it's a game changer. Sometimes it just freaks me out of giving people my number. Essentially you don't even have to give out your primary number before you're ready. Imagine having a whole dedicated phone line to manage your love life a whole separate contact list to keep your potential matches organiz. Its commitment without too much commitment. You know what i mean. And also if you're match turns out to be a dud and you're not into them you can literally change your number and start over again. I love that so with text. Now you can actually get a free phone line all on your primary phone. It's literally like having a whole separate number. It's insane you can get unlimited calling and texting to the us and canada for free with your second phone number and keep your primary phone number. Private went online dating to learn more. Go to text now dot com slash g. o. y. n. and download the text now app for free in the app store or google play. Stop worrying and start giving out your number okay so if someone is listening at home right now and you feel like you can relate to this scenario. Maybe you've been talking to someone on an offer about a year. So and you're wondering how to navigate this. I'm curious now to hear like weather. Learn from your side or jeremy. What you what advice would you have for a girl in that situation. Who would love to change said boy or girl whoever and things they can change them like i got an answer but go ahead. I also have an answer. Do not waste your time and move the fuck on. Here's like i just feel like this. Is the bottom line to every relationship ever or like that weird middle dating stage if they wanted to they would have And i have learned that one. Two three What is your symptoms. I don't know but it's so true. It's like i've been in that position where i like had this expectation that i went back and forth of being like. I think that person wants us to believe. I'm not sure. I think this person wanted to and like if there is not a clear lineman on core values and they're not giving you the reassurance that you're aligned like why the book would you waste your time like go find someone who's going to check all those boxes and you check their boxes. I think that's really easy for you to say when you're not from that individual's perspective. I think it's a little bit like you're really good with nine year worth something to i think to me. It's it should be less about the. I wanna change. That person who does that. It's like what do you want. Why do you want to change this person like you need to be able to answer that. I wanna change the person. Well i can't speak for everyone. But at least for me when i was in this situation of like i want to. It was more about myself. I wanna be. I want that recognition. I want that validation. I want to be the one. That's good enough to change this person. That's exactly that's the general consensus. Yeah i can do it because like you want to feel like you are the one so person in the entire universe that could change that person from being whether it is being a fuck boyer just like changing their ways. Yeah i don't think it's even like to expand on that like you want to feel like they love you enough to make a change and so it's like when change doesn't happen and i want to be very hard. This is not a fucking healthy to be. Let's be very clear here like this is not advice but like it's hard to not feel like they don't love you enough to make that change even when that change just maybe means that you're not right for each other obscure shit. Y'all girls think though stressful up in our head you cannot control what somebody else thinks about you right but i think that there should be so much conversation dialogue as to what you both want and expect totally but then put your energy towards the conversation and communication not towards trying to manipulate a scenario. Turn out the way that you think is beneficial for you. Long term is too much credit thinking ahead like trying to manipulate and like strategize conversation right. That's i don't think that's like giving girls too much credit to say that like we're trying to do that. I don't think the group grosses of all the credit in the world. Lauren one like girls. Don't go into that being like. I'm going to manipulate this. Move in with me totally but like if if you are from the female or male perspective doesn't matter if you if you don't know what you want short and long term. How can you expect somebody else to fall into the cracks and meet you there. Long-term and healthy capacity. But what if you do know what you want if you do not want then. It's very simple if you know what you want. And you're in control of that. You can communicate that great and if they respond well perfect if they don't then what you want obviously from what they want. That's what i said from the get on the same page. Got there so you have to know what you want. I do like that. I think that's just good dating advice though or know what you want before you go out there because if you are if you are just running around freely than it makes it a lot harder and i feel like then. I'm really trying to engage with my past trauma. I i think that if you is me talking to pass. I think that if you're not set in what you want to then it's easy for you to sway and that's when you get into the mindset of like i well i down for that do this or i could change him doing i want now and then it changes every day. It's accurate that's messy is. I mean although. I think we have this weird like control and power issue. I don't know many of my close friends who are like. I just want to change her to build a bit more. Like one of the boys like i want to change your influence. That's not something that is like a lot of them. Go into literally three guys that. Think that really yeah hundred percent where they're like oh she's like she's so high maintenance i go she was just more chill like smoke more weed and was like one of the boroughs but like can have sex with your friends do that. Do you have single friends. Yes never got a easy absolutely do and they all like guys. I m sorry two straight friends. I mean that's why you're on here right now. I have to just say the advice getting here really made me move mountains with cal. It was like no no. I would never think like that. So yeah but i'm telling you he didn't have such an agenda. Yeah no. I agree which is good. That's that's wholesome. So if a guy sees a girl at a bar they hook up remember those days yes remember those days does he assumed she only wants to hook up to like are they just like oh how we both want huckabee the cool by about eight or microphone so i feel like guys go into that being like you know what i don't know maybe i can't even speak to this during ahead. What were you going to say. I really want to hear what whatever just like took over your face for a moment. I feel like i feel like guys are like this would be really fun if we go home tonight. But i'm scared she'll won't more. That's that's a narrative. I think a lot of girls think it's not far off. I mean i think guys some guys like i used to. It's not that i didn't love sex i did. It was great. It was fun and still do. Of course it was going to say okay. We love lives baby. Pink like no but entirely honest. I enjoyed the game and chase the way up to it way. more sex. yeah fights a me and it's probably speaking like some ridiculous child insecurity of me but like at the bar if you look over and the girl looks back at you go. Okay got it. That's what i was chasing the idea like. Oh like she likes me like she's attracted to me or like. Oh i can go home with her because she finds me worthy enough. Whatever that insecure unhealthy. Voight is that's what. I was thinking of the moment that was achieved. It was immediate switch of while. Better get the fuck out of this situation before she does catch feeling I'm not thinking about the feelings until i get done with the game. Verse place. yeah yes pace right now. So do you think it always stems from some sort of like whether it's a childhood insecurity or an insecurity themselves or they got their heartbroken like it always it stems from a feeling that makes them not wanna ever feel that way again. I mean like my tall lanky. That was missing front tooth the moment that like i actually right. I happened to your tooth glaze over what which wasn't born with it. You didn't have to fake shut. Ashes like in the middle and then like and as i say just plain through my gap and so. I was like painfully insecure. An awkward moment ago was like. Hey i was like to me jeremy. Nice to meet what. Hi nice to meet you like the idea of just like continuing to feel that. Like validation fighting didn't for me. So i imagine like that seen in my head is like the start to a movie. Do you know what i mean. Yeah jeremy's live just as a whole. It's kind of like a weird movie with lots of different chapters but like the issue of course is like starts in this like not like healthy but like it starts in like a like your intention is. I'm gonna go fucking hurt people. Yeah it's like. Oh doesn't like feeling like validate monitor. Yeah yeah yes it was like the problem is for all the people get too far in. Then go oh shit. It's like an addiction like you don't realize that you're addicted to that feeling until your balls deepen that feeling you have fuck. I mean i think it's when you look at the destruction you're causing And you don't know how to fix it and so you just do more of it She's healthy and as a whole. We apologize to the women of los angeles kentucky. A also a national tour. You're at one time in europe. Yeah okay. I want to know then when you met lauren. Were you ready for a relationship or did it. Just kind of happen. Made no sense really see. That's where this is where the graph comes back in. You know we have hit the plan we have hit the plateau. Like damn we're in it. we're causing destruction. But at what point. Would i wanna keep going to hold on the last time that i was a total ho. Okay like i was coming off of being engaged So it was like that was a different whole face for me. i wanted to get. That is very because i wasn't also wasn't in college. Like i knew how to communicate enough at that point to be very upfront and open and honest when i was dating apps of just like not trying to make. It seem like i wanted to relationships. I was the one putting more distance there. The problem is knowing that from the reverse. Now other on the flip side of that. They're like wait so it does like me or not like like. Why does he is he. Sup- almost wisey so communicative about what he wants. He doesn't can. I change that. So oh my bark note version right there. Being if he says he doesn't wanna relationship does not want religion. You wanna relations live even if that was like three months before you know. Does you know what i mean. I think you should at any point in time. You're wondering whether he wants relationship or not. If you don't feel comfortable enough to ask t then he doesn't want a relationship should face value. Here's the thing i think. A lot of girls they hear it goes into ear but then maybe a month goes by a few more dates. Go by and then you're going feel but maybe it's changed. But but but but he said i love what i mean but i see notifications from bumble. Still going on right next to me. Okay if he says he doesn't he doesn't and it's not to say of course always like when i i a friend who's been my husband forty seven years. Of course it's going to be people change their place. You can't assume someone's going to change their mind only going. I think girls were just even though they know. And it's like. I know they just they hope but whatever they tell you they love you even though they tell you they don't want us just around we've talked about this. This guy was sick head and you need help sorace -struction yeah like that's like that's fucked up. I don't wanna. The problem is like a lot of guys are just like neanderthals when it comes to communication and they say so much that they do don't mean anyway just kind of falls out and so i think he says one nice thing one time that you like then hang on three. Yeah and when. I say you remm definitely held on Definitely it's on my neil me. Can you tell him the one time about the summer told me about this summer. The quote. I don't know what you're talk logged on number one time during my year tour this person i would every like it was it started out like frequent and then you know as time goes on. Would you be a party member. Those good times so i told myself that i would block him and i would leave notes around my house but like you stupid bitch i gotta tell them this one story. One time. i was coming home. And i had a picture of us right and so i had a picture and i came home from a trip and i was like fuck hamlet ram. You deserve so much better like you you. You need to stop like just a pause you. The worst part is that literally every person including myself. Remy's lifer like bitch you deserve better. Las number one bitch gave me the okay. And that's why we have a podcast to kids number. What are you doing the one half okay to go in. I would literally leave. Hang out with you. Fucking block him. And i come here and she'd be like i mean that's okay. We're late bloomers. She needed the. I needed it anyways. So i have to. I i came home was like graham. You deserve better. You need to get rid of anything. We had a picture. I start and he hadn't texted me like two weeks. maybe longer. i don't remember was it. no. I don't think it was two months. And i started burning the picture so that his face was on fire right and i was like fuck. You'd in by myself. Allison i look. He takes me. I go. I take the picture up out the fire some satanic weird shit. I think at any point in time. You're so emotionally a investments. You literally burn a picture inside of your home mike you. You're not ready. You gotta take a step back honestly. I think it's so funny looking back. I thought that i was right now. That i'm like she'll also degree like now. You look back on and learn from it. So i all good. I live anyways my other story. I was like leaving. No my house to like if if i wanted to text him. I'd look up and my giant letter board. I had written block his number and enjoy your summer. Cast bitch do that. And then i got a text what are you doing. I'm getting a common theme. Yes i get a text. The best part is she had specific like she she does has specific sound like tones to different people so she heard it she knew it was has pavlak the dog just ask him literally she like flus my breath this guy ducks so then they. They asked me if i wanted to watch them play soccer at l. a. for like a charity thing. So i went. This is actually so embarrassing. I like went down and like i don't know if i know this story. Second hand. embarrassment is safe space. I just. I watched him play soccer. La live in the thing. She didn't even ask for me to come. she was just so much disapproval. Eight and grow squad like we were just like. Oh yeah dumb bitch. What are you doing hurt fair. I pulled out with the umbrella. Orange slight susan free fun and then after it. They're like oh like. Do you want like go hang out and i was like yeah you can like shower my place and we walk back and he walks in and i have block his number and enjoy your summer all over my wall on the way to the bathroom and he looks really and then i was last time i ever saw him.

We we asked our viewers if they had any specific questions. We have some good. We have some good fun. And i will admit i was a little triggered whilst reading them. But that's okay whilst Okay i thing most attractive things girls do or don't do in the beginning of a relationship. Lauren go ahead also boys. I'm here boys this most to things for girl now out here most attractive things boys do or don't do on the beginning of relationship. I'm a notorious serial dater. So i've dated everyone that i've ever been on a date with so i don't know one. Is that really. You must be perfect for every. Yeah no no no i. Don't the healthy you go into it knowing. No jeremy i was on the precipice of my biggest hope. She's written on her walls. But i definitely this is. This is jeremy is you ask. Her story arc was yeah. He was like my third date after being single. And i was like ready to fuck in ho out like i was running because i've just such a notorious serial i really have never had more than like six to eight months of being single. I'm in la single. The first time remember went to the club that one time arena talks about arena k. Tone frequently used to take me to bring is a great trouble for getting on stage. That's not unusual aspect at all. I fell. i'm sorry. We're having a good time at the club. Found like four of my sweet like asian sorority sisters. There it was such a good night and it was like a meeting. I can never the scream now. Anyway headline i think coming out of my last relationship. I was really blown away by anyone who had like like really solid communication skills and so like the first day like this guy asked me so many questions about myself and i was like. That's so nice care. And then and then the other day so went on as well. Same thing but jeremy was like oh super direct and like very clear in his intentions very clear like communication of what he wanted and then what was it. Oh and also response was like at the speed of light in texting when we were in like. Maybe the first couple weeks of talking. He would have two screens at work and just like firing back responses in like seconds and i was like. Oh my god like what's going on. It was almost like so flattering. Is this a red flag like the do. That's been done it classic girl. They're just like wait. He's responding to fast right. he's he's to communicative and usually exactly what i wanted to go out. He met me there on times on time. Pay did pay and yet so it was just have sex me the first night. Wait so when you met her. You knew you wanted you pursued our heart as a relationship. No oh it sounds like you know when when we met like before we met like on the first date. Yes because you had met a while ago but then you already knew of each other and then you like matched right right. I guess going into the first date is not say. Didn't know what i wanted. But like i actually had been coming off apps for like the week few weeks beforehand. Just like i'm tired. i'm over it kind of thing. And when she of course he's out to me bitch just getting over that. That just went unread. Yeah oh actually left amman. No it wasn't an unregistered on read. It made a general Yeah it was it got it got stuck around the general not on red unread anyway But it wasn't like going into this actually with as much intention as other ones and also because like we had known each other. We're going in me like let's have some sex. I see i see a little bit different. But i will say after our first date i was i pride myself on the since i was particularly interested in her very first moment be ten. I think a lot of guys just know whatever but like literally after our first date. I was like well. I like this girl now. What was it like was it. What did she do don't do Went into it the end that it was a big old nerd and that is still pretty accurate. No you do. I don't know it's hard to put into words the most natural feelings. Yeah all the things that i i didn't i wanted. She filled the void like immediately. And then all the things. I didn't like like just burnt present. I remember like our first kiss very like it was the most like electric. I kiss it gives me long. Okay what i will say is that germany had super low expectations. They thought i was a nerd. That like never boy before. I think she had a son called diy queen. It was about crafting. Now song fox and i laughed a little heart and have you ever played it. When you have sex alicia alicia marie. Obviously she's gonna play her own when you have sex next time okay. This song i knew. Then what are we learning. Oh yeah so. Expectations were low. So i feel like when i try and do like a shitty little peck. He was like oh. You don't get expectations were low. And that's probably why. I got a better score than anticipated. What is fucking scorecard to this. I mean you've just kissed somebody bitches. I don't know god. I don't know how you're so chill talking about it. What do you mean. I'm just like nana jealous person. I'm honestly not jealous. And i'm relieved that he's already done that. Yeah that makes sense out of a system. There's also a big difference between someone being a total fuck boy and you finding out about it later from other people as opposed to like the second or third date like hearing it directly from the mouth. Like it's different. I completely agree. That's the big piece by communication. If you if you're the one that will kill the accusation right in the beginning like yeah. I've had quite face for sure. Definitely i don't feel like a true fuck boy and their high of everything would actually admit you. Admit him for the most part because we're not immediately themselves exactly. They're in denial rum just moving on just sleeping. Someone early impact the possibility of a serious relationship. I don't know why you're looking at me. Oh you mean enter yeah Yeah could go either way. But let's say the most impactful memory guy has a girl is like sex in. Because he was drunk she was drawn having a bad day he was going to bed day. Like you kinda like great like climaxed not literally on a very like emotional thing in the early part of like knowing somebody and like. I think it's easy to be like. Yeah wasn't that good. i guess. Let's move on when like everyone in the world has had bad sex before even if someone like. They're married to but like they're already married or like they've already been together kind of different like go into something and it just isn't what you expect and it kind of colors. Everything else interesting. I had to stop having sex or second date. It was cute. it was cute. He's tech he was down. She's definitely the first date folk cal anything. I thought i'd never see again. I'm just run through this one. Whatever on we're gonna see him again. Okay how would you react to a girl telling you. She's a virgin. That's nice. would you say that really good. That's great good for you. Know honestly at so when i'm single like in my face and she's she's such a virgin It's not just that. I wouldn't like that's a nonstarter but i think i then would put on my own responsibility. Not fucking that up Like i'm sure there's some dude out there that thinks that's ridiculously oddly. Attractive for all the wrong reasons. Ask you know there are some people out there that would find that attractive for the right reasons. Like for me as someone who had who didn't value sex in the same capacity at least to my best. Guess what. I think that she would. I would have to tread lightly but it wouldn't be a non-starter t at all would definitely not be a non-starter and have that weird conversation ones but everyone told me not to do it. All of my friends don't say anything like don't like don't make it like a thing university. Yeah was like. I don't think it's like a weird thing to like. Not weird thing to say. Are we not say any time. You can't be honest about your truth. You're not ready for whatever that situation is if you guys just have like this this idea that lake. If they were to take a girl's virginity that girl become then so attached and the ski the movie like that. You always hear any do any guy that thinks that has the right to think that and they can they can feel that way. I just don't get evolve with that guy right. Oh totally totally. Don't get involved with that guy a lot of neon signs to make no. Maybe we can get a brand deal okay. Have you ever slept with. Have you ever slept with girls and the same friend circle slash roommates. And i need to tell you how this one came to beep. I said all my story guys. We're doing an episode with an x. Fuck boy we're really excited. Astra questions someone wrote. Has jeremy ever spoke french circles. Let's room. I'm not even kidding nice. That was sounded pretty. What do you mean this. There's literally ask you okay yet. Which fucking time. Especially this co only. How many girl. Oh my god. They're always drawing my story because like three girls let sleep with the same. Yeah that's so true. Yeah the it's actually not as bad when it's the like thinking back to my own personal experience. It wasn't that bad because like that all the time and like girls although they would be very upset about it to me or whatever they're more Other yeah yeah. Oh yeah vice versa. A couple of times my bad. I might been with a girl that one of my buddies was interested in. There wasn't anything there. Right goes the time times. i'm like. Oh i fucked up. I should have done that. Did you abandon or did you apologize to. Of course. I wasn't immature. Falcons bro sorry. Y'all dating that interest. I think you have a lot of handwritten sorry cards to read handwriting. Legible just send out a big email blast everyone. Everybody likes ask. Why did he randomly. Text me to only ghost me again. Like sucks but okay guys do that shit especially on the control side to see if your pie. Yeah just like just test. The waters like guys are are so unabashedly fucking stupid sometimes there. Let's see how it goes like and it's not like think thinking themselves like ooh fuck with her head for sure like they're out there but they're just like i got it still got it that's all it is and it's stupid and it's low and it's like absolute of the earth but try to think it's about you because it's completely about them. It's the most selfish thing. They just want their ego stroked a so got. Don't mean this. I mean it's ridiculous. Okay if a girl says yes to friends with benefits but you know she's really into you do you bring it up or saying nothing lose lose lose lose because you bring it up that way. I don't you run the risk of them being like no. I don't feel that way. And if you don't bring it up and it is true then probably communicated about it so you're fucked. How nice how domestic. Nobody like that in particular i. It's not like there are very few people that have successfully had a friends with benefits with. Yeah been there have been few and like how do you have it successfully. You start out communicating the right way and just saying i'm i don't want a relationship actually. Did you start communicating and you. Keep that communication up through everybody because they'll have maybe a little bit of a thing or you will and you fall in and out and that little tax of like. Hey what's up. Like has to be a mutual thing. I would say nine point nine percent times. It does not say yeah. I probably don't do it. Just don't just don't don't don't ask don't risks. It's probably not a hundred percent now. It's a fifty fifty chance of who gets feeling so it's up if you're willing to like i almost get higher on. The girl says it is a thick skin. Jeremy over here. He's like competent in successful. We had prince benefits with the other person. Say that really t- not all of them. No a one fine. She said she was. You had successful friend with benefit friend. One one little shining star there in the one thing that made it successful was just open. Communication the totally and who ended up first. And how did you end. End friends with benefits. A oh more in right but if you have to end it there's just stop hearing from each other. Wow just in shock the three of us here. We're not over that. Not over that. I was told to my face. They wanted to be friends with benefits. And i was like i can change him. I know a lot of other girls do that to like the normal but then that goes back to what i was saying. I didn't know i knew what i wanted. But i wasn't honest with myself off. Flip that to the when it does happen to guy we like we. We're just friends. Everything's quantity feelings. And then he catches feelings that dude's the one that ends up doing something really hurtful to mask his own feelings away from himself. What we're saying is boys ain't shit not boys ain't shit fuck not literally open. Communication to me is friends with benefits fizzles out like there's nothing for it to stop. It's like you just don't text that person anymore. That makes sense. Because there's like you don't feel like you have to win and also you're not chatting you're not getting to know each other. You have sex in the new league about being said if you get into a relationship and you do hit that person. That's a red flag because if you're heading someone you didn't have any real like emotional connection to and you hit them after having emotional connection with somebody else that's a big issue and if you're thinking about that person when you're in a relationship You take a step back and think about what you're doing. Hit meaning sex like every time you text that person. Yeah it's like it's like when it's done it's done and if you get if you get in a relationship with somebody else right you need to make sure you don't text that person. Oh god because then there is something more. Oh i was very confused. Okay that makes more sense. Yes well that's wrong either way. So what's the biggest sign. He's boy. I don't know why i'm looking at me because this is a collaborative but he is the moiseev. Okay you know what the one thing for me that like. I will say based on my very very small pool of dating. Experience is that is that actions will always speak louder than words. But sometimes i've had a reverse situation where they'll say specific things but just act completely not like that. So it's like it's just when there's a disconnect between what they're saying and what they're doing it could be on either side and it just it just pushes and pulls you in so many different directions and strings you along. And if they're not being very clear on both sides of what they want and what. They're showing you that you've got to go. Yeah that's so true. I don't think there's a clear indication. Yeah i think if he wanted to he would and if he wanted to he would yeah so if he wanted to he would know guys. The only thing we're really good. It's like following. What are dick wants us to do like. We're really good at that. According to help you out but and also like everything just six seems to like easy almost like to natural so you at that time when you met lauren. Do you feel like if you've met her years before it would have been similar. Do you think you just had to like go. Through all that. If i met her years before it would have been a total disaster t lutely absolutely on both sides. I feel like it's like really wanted to like him. And like yes you would have thought. I would have to learn things and past relationships like if we had met you know. Five years ago there was so much more that i had to learn and mature over time and like have happened to me as well to know how to navigate that moving forward city. Do you guys think that it's true that you can meet the right person but at the wrong time yes Someone's like right now. I'm saying i disagree personally. That's why i always say like. I'm so grateful that jeremy had his hope as and we met after that as he was starting to come down and be tired of it like even like six months earlier. Maybe it just wouldn't have been the right time but you met at the right time. We met the right thing. you didn't. yeah okay understand. Love timing is everything so yeah absolutely raleigh. Just doing that like the. I've got a lot to think about it. Gets you rams face the entire time. I feel like i just got a lot of that. I've been wondering for very long time. It's good we should have had this conversational longtime ago with us. Just like your. I'm like nobody like in the middle ours happening at so funny. Well thank you so much for coming on and enlightening all of us especially myself I feel like we can tie up a lot of loosens move on with our lives now and i think that this probably helped a lot of people listening. Yeah and if you feel huge swamp more on your side that this is ending. There is an episode. You can go listen to on lauren. And jeremy's podcast while nine because this is a pod stop and you go. Listen listen and then watch it on youtube. Give them that coin. Debriefing like to add to our conclusion. This is the best setup for now me and all the dirty and juicy and just nasty question to ask. both clinic. didn't nothing but just pour the gasoline. I go home and write down. I'm not getting a hundred questions that i think. We'll just get the absolute. Just the scum of the earth questioned. They need to be answered by by. Everyone should have gone second. I this is the warm up. Or how hard jeremy's about to go tomorrow. This is truly a two part series and on that note. Don't forget a pretty basic listening to us on apple podcasts. Spotify wherever you're scared i.

Amazon Sellers May Go Out of Business If They Don't Do This | Ep. #810

"Get ready for your daily dose of marketing strategies and tactics from entrepreneurs with the guy and experience to help you find success in any marketing capacity. You're listening to marketing school with your instructors, Neil Patel, and Eric SU. Welcome to episode of marketing school. I'm Eric SU, and I'm meal Pettah and Neil tired today we are going to talk about how Amazon sellers may go out of business if they don't do that. So let me give you a little context speaking ecommerce conference, and I spoke to ecommerce conference actually a couple years ago, and what was interesting even a couple years ago, two three years ago and was talking about Amazon. Amazon is like this gold mine, right? Amazon is Amazon data making so much Amazon. You do Amazon, you're gonna build seven figure eight figure nine figure business like more power to you. Right. That's good. Now, the thing is I'm still realizing the same thing here I spoke at this conference. There is a lot of what it comes Amazon. I see a lot of kind of short termism, right? It's it's like we're making the most of this goldmine right now. It's kind of like the gold rush with SEO and early NASA's, very easy to manipulate Google. Everyone's doing really well. And the thing with this is when you build on top of Amazon, you do not control the customers. And you do not control your destiny because if they decide to ban you the next day you're done, you're done. So all the talk of round Neil Neil mentioning than myself. Also talking about building a brand building, something, sustainable, building a business that plays into this. And that was basically the what mytalk Senate around. So that is the context around this Neil. What are your thoughts around this general. You and I know this marketings has moved to Omni channel approach in which you can't just love Google as SEO or you can just leverage even Amazon at their big contender. They're probably going to be the number third player in the marketplace after Google Facebook, they are the true you can't rely on each other and you have to use multiple channels. So if you're trying to go for that, goldrush Amazon yet try to do it and makes you could a good product. A lot of people these as I'm seeing them creating like crappy products just to make a quick and it doesn't last, you need credit good product that's a given. But the big thing that Aircon are trying to push on is what you're getting from Amazon right now will not last, yes, Amazon's growing in. It's gonna become a bigger company, but as it becomes bigger and more volume is also going to become more competitive, more larger corporations are going to come in there, burn a ton of money and try to wipe you out for that reason. You yourself have to diversify from creating your own emails to creating your own website to running your own ads on Facebook and sending maybe to your shop ice store. Whatever it may be as if you rely on Amazon, you can do really well for a long period of time. But one little thing can crush you all the concepts that we're talking around. I mean that we spoken about Indus podcast going over two years now applies, you're trying to build a site you're trying to build. Actually, Neil wrote a blog posts about how a blog is not just a blog. It is a business, right? Was the title again, that's actually the title. There you go. So point point being as you got to build on channel approach, you got to build yourself immediate company because remember I talked about this couple times Bill Gates said in the nineties, every company is going to become every successful companies going to become a media company, and that's what you gotta do. Because if you're just trying to put this money in, oh five x. row as eight x row as like, great, right, but take some of that money reinvested into the long term that if you're crazy like Neil or even myself, maybe dump all that money back in. So you can have this this, this really susceptible machine for the long term. So you know, in the case that an advertising platform bands. You or Amazon Banji. I'm not saying you're very bad -able, but it's it's at their whim. Right. And the other thing I'll say is this company away luggage, okay, so they make cool luggage, and they became a meeting, but he's sort of right about these different types of topics. But what what most people don't know is if you search for a way luggage on Amazon, Amazon owns the ads and who, what does them do? Amazon basics, right? And so they're all keeping that now they have the data, they own it, they know what to do and they can do whatever they want their Amazon. In addition to that as Amazon seller, I'm not one, but a good friend who is you'll find that other people like other shady marketers are gonna screw up your revenue. So I have a friend. His name is Jared. He has a site called skin-care by Leinna. They sell their own cosmetic stuff. Can do one hundred thousand dollars a month from Amazon. No problem like the back of his hand. But every once in a while, at least once a year, that revenue Ghosh's zero. And if you had to guess why air, what would you think that Remm. Negotions are because they have, let's see, it gets really competitive. Maybe they, they managed to get them banned. That's right. One of their competitors will report him or create a ton of accounting flag him and get them bad seriously happens at least once a year to happen. So a lot of people that I know who are legitimate non marketers just creating amazing products. But you know what, when the happened to Jared, he gets upset and it sucks. But he doesn't, you know, stop his business because he has own website. His website generates more revenue than what he does from Amazon, and that's because he's diversified and that's what you need to do. You can't rely on one channel actually. That's really interesting. So at that conference, most people their revenue, let's say, seventy eighty percent plus comes from Amazon. Right now, I was talking to my friend, his business, his site, they do about seven to eight million dollars a year, and I was like, hey, I'm at this conference right now. Can you tell me how much how much of your business comes from Amazon? He's like, we only like twenty five grand a month. Okay, so three hundred k. a year. So that's almost. Nothing compared to everything that he's getting from his his his website. So keeping is take two concepts that you get from this podcast and apply them into building a site. And if you're doing really wolrd, let's say you're doing over seven fitters take take twenty percent of that. Reinvest it and build a website building for long-term your Email list, right? If you like doing videos, do videos. If you like doing podcast, do podcasts that way you're defensible and I'll tell you what your valuation of your business is probably gonna be higher that's from mined coal. So that isn't potato by the way for whatever reason, you know, we've had people some people reaching out to us corporate trading to tweet at me at Erico sue. That's what owned the middle. If you're interested in that kind of stuff because we do a lot of discontent. But beside that we are going to do a live event in downtown Los Angeles. We're going to record it as well. They're going to be food. It's going to be great Neil, not going to be there. It's gonna be all day. The only caveat is we need your help rate reviews of scribe. This to this podcast. We are currently at about run rate for about eight hundred fifty thousand downloads. Month we want to get to a million. So once we get to a million over thirty day period, we are going to do that live event. And we hope to see you all there. It's gonna be great food, Neil ni- when working for great Ellie weather, we'll see there. This session of marketing school has come to a close, be sure to subscribe for more daily marketing strategies and tactics to help you find the success you've always dreamed of and don't forget to rate and review, so we can continue to bring you the best daily content possible. We'll see you in class tomorrow right here on ARCHE school.

Techlash City

"The podcast is brought to you by work. People are moving to cities seeking community in the opportunity to be part of something greater than themselves to create their life's work. We work answers this call by providing the space services and community that people need to make a life and not just living by helping create economic growth and opportunity in our neighborhoods and cities, whether you're an entrepreneur, a local small business owner or a fortune five hundred exac checkout, we work dot com to learn how we work as helping people companies and cities thrive. So there is some crazy drama going down in Seattle right now. And as an urban tech junkie, I'm totally glued to it. So it what's the stories in another Amazon HQ to thing. Actually, this is one Seattle tale. That's not about Amazon. It's about this relatively small startup called Remm Perry. It let's landlords list apartments to rent. And then let's renters create a profile and then bid on. On these apartments, this company launched in San Francisco back in two thousand sixteen and it was big news. The pundits were all over it rent Jones from the tech site Gizmodo wrote that it was the start up of your nightmares even city labs. Kristen caps wrote that it was quote designed to eliminate any uncertainty about who's getting screwed by the rental housing market. But still rent bury St. alive kept chugging along and things were looking up until it came to Seattle some students at the university of Washington got worried that it would Jack up rental prices for them which were already really unaffordable there and before rent berry had even ten apartments listed on their website. The city council unanimously passed a law shutting it down for two years. So they could study its potential impacts what? Yeah. Here I'll play you the tape from one of the city council hearings. Listen to what they had to say. Obviously. You can't just let people have a bidding war, even if we weren't bursting at the seams with housing it just something just about eating, right? This is what my my fear is. We have the whole Uber nightmare moratorium type of platform for a short period of time, twelve months, and then figure out if there's regulations this thing, and after we dealt with Airbnb we've learned a lot. I I know you have I have just be honest here. Do we just not want to have this? Are you asking us to prohibit or regulate and on air on the most important equity issues that has come in front of us? It puts people who have resources at the top of the pack right now just strikes me as being so grossly unfair. Do we just not wanna have this? I find that to be such a surprisingly direct question. I get the city council. Feels burned by their experiences with Uber Airbnb and they're understandably concerned about equity issues, but prohibit shutdown. That's quite a preemptive strike based on my experience at Airbnb actually could have predicted this reaction and to be. Frank. I had a similar reaction myself when I first learned about Perry. But I really didn't think any city would go this far imposing a two year moratorium. It's basically a business killer, and I questioned whether Seattle had any legal grounds to essentially ban of business from operating in their city. That's exactly what raspberry thought. And that's why they sued. In fact, the court's decision is due out any day now, but the store is much bigger than rent, Barron. Seattle it brings up all these other questions like how can cities. No for sure what the impact of this tech will be if it's barely operating in the market. And why are people reacting to it in such a big way bright, and what is it about tech meddling in housing that provoked such an emotional reaction? We're going to dig into all those questions on today's episode tech lash city. Welcome to Staples for technology is disrupting remaking and sometimes over running our cities. I'm Jim caps. I was Clement negotiator and the Obama administration and now advice tech startups. And I'm Molly Turner, I teach urban innovation at the Berkeley Haas school of business. And I was the first policy person at Airbnb today, we're going to investigate the rent Barry saga when Seattle shut down the company after barely opened up shop in the city will leave the question of whether the city had the right to shut it down to the federal courts. Instead, we'd rather ask why did so many people have such a visceral reaction to this website? Are we getting buyer's remorse for all our past techno optimism, it we'll explore the unexpected impacts when tech charges into the most important parts of our society like housing, we'll start by talking with desert fields from the university of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. She's an expert on the ways digital platforms are changing a relationship with real estate. We'll also talk with Nick car the claim. The author of many books chronicling the unforeseen ways that technologies are messing with our brains and society at large. But I I wanna go way back to nineteen ninety five. I think maybe you were middle school mall. That's the year that EBay I came out. And you know, what people loved it? I mean, they would cancel plans. Just so they wouldn't lose a bid so that so why wouldn't the reaction to be the same with rent berry? Don't people bid on housing all the time. I mean, I'm not a homeowner like you are. But isn't that how it works? It's a bidding competition is exactly how it works. You're you're definitely bidding when you're trying to buy a house, but there's something about bringing this tech transaction into rental housing that makes it different and desert as just the person to explain that to us. I spoke with her recently. And I think you're going to really dig her work, Jim, she's an expert on housing, tech and coins, the term automated landlords. So it's like a robot landlord kind of. I mean, I think it's important to remember. There's always people. Behind the machines. Yeah, there's always people behind the machine or corporations behind the machine in the case of the workup been doing recently. But it's a way to think about so not only platforms kind of mediating that relationship, but how do those technologies that we've seen come out over the past decade ish or a little bit more things, like, cloud computing, mobile computing, all kinds of new analytics artificial intelligence, how do those technologies come to play a bigger role than just kind of in mediating technology. So what's different about that than what how people have done things before the cell is around making real estate investment, more efficient and more transparent. Would you consider rent berry or Bidwell these rental bidding websites to be automated landlords of this kind of part of the same trend? You're seeing I think it's part of the same trend. I mean, they're obviously they're not landlords in the sense that they don't own the properties. Right. But they provide a way for the landlords who list properties on their site to work. Automated ways, I think they're they're part of the kind of overall trend of the way that these technologies are kind of increasingly governing the relationships between landlords and tenants so Seattle famously shutdown rent, Barry right after rent berry launched do you think they did the right thing? I think there's a good reason to think about sites like Renton berry with caution. And the reason that I say that is because rent Mary was strategic about where they decided to roll out. Right. So if you look at the geography of the cities that ram berry his rolled out, and you know, they started in San Francisco, they tried to open up in Seattle. They tried to move to Sydney, they're active in London markets. They're in hot markets. So what's wrong with them launching in the hot markets? What does that tell you? It tells me that exploiting overheated rental markets is at the core of their business model. Right. So when we're operating in an acute rental affordability crisis in cities, not only in the US, but across the world. I'm not sure that you know, that platforms whose core business model is designed to explain those dynamics is is going to be beneficial for society. Why do you think some of these new tech platforms like rember in midvale elicit such strong reactions from city leaders from residents the idea that we would be then bidding on rents that people are already quite ill equipped to afford it. This point is I think repugnant to a lot of people. The, you know, the idea that business would be doing anything to encourage people to bid over rents the, you know, already stretching people's budgets really thin is just kind of difficult to comprehend, you know, with something like enthusiasts feel it's hard to feel excited in a good way about that for most people who are contending with, you know, with their rental markets in these places some of these automated landlord websites like rim berry kind of shine a light on the existing inequities in these housing markets. Do you think that shutting these websites down? Actually does anything to solve that problem. Or are there other things that city leaders should be focusing on to help address? The affordability problem. I'm not saying we should never think about regulations on technology. But from a regulation perspective, if we want to if we want to protect renters so that platforms like rent berry can't you know, sort of worsen housing market conditions for renters like, why don't we just protect all renters rather than the ones that might be affected by rent berry. Right. So I just think I think that policy solutions targeting the rental market are broader-based, and therefore all tenants are more likely to benefit from them rather than the smaller group of people who might be interacting with Ren berry. I think to leave that to the market is a bit short sighted because like markets move in cycles there booms their bus, and to expose this thing that is such a fundamental requirement to the vicissitudes of the market leaves people vulnerable. Do you think these automated landlord websites might actually be able to help us in some places? Yeah. I mean, I think there's some, you know, there's really interesting applications that we could think about, you know, doing to kind of help people develop housing cooperatives, for example, or to help match people with section eight vouchers with housing units and areas that they wanna live. Of course, you still have to think about the discrimination. They often face from landlords. So again, like none of these technologies are perfect on their own. But that could be a start. And then also I just wanted to give a shout out to just fixed NYC, which basically is an app that helps kind of walk tenants through the process of like, what's all the evidence? I need to collect to bring a case against my landlord and housing court like what kind of pictures, do I need what kind of education do any Pat. And then it hooks them up with with legal aid for that raises. A really good point. Which is technology is so often used to decentralize power or to take power from you know, people who typically have in give it to more people and. Yeah, and I guess, you know, the way. That we interact with digital technologies. Even though we have like social networks and all the rest of it like it can often be really individualizing. And I think that whole convenience thing like for the individual tenant, the automated landlord could be great because it's like it's slick it's easy. It's fast. It's convenient. And we all live, you know, really busy lives. But that can also separate us off from you know, other people who might be for example, like tenants of the same landlord, and so any sort of use of platforms and big data and all of that to help better connect tenants. I think can be really beneficial because the sort of power imbalance between landlords and tenants tenants working together collectively as a group can put pressure on not only on landlords, but also on policymakers to create change. And so if we can use technology to do that all the better. I like how she pointed out. There's already an existing power imbalance in rental housing. That tech might just make worse. But you also said that doesn't have to it could be used to correct power balances like that New York group that uses tech to help tenants that she described, but I still wonder how much does the messenger matter here. I bet that if a trusted brand like EBay or Craigslist started housing auction. The reaction would have been much more muted after Uber lift there's something about being the new tech guy on the block that I think maybe invites mistrust like I've seen this before. And I didn't like it. The first time, I agree that those factors might make a difference. But I think there are some inherent characteristics of tech that do make a squeamish. And there might be really good reason for that. Nick can help us understand these feelings better. He's the guy who I said Google is making us stupid. I called Google Brin Google Payne. Let's get his take on the darker side of tech. And how. Protect ourselves from it. There was this tech lash in Seattle last year over a startup in the housing market called rent Perry. How do you respond to a situation like that? Is that the the right kind of reaction to tech coming into a market when you're not sure what the consequences might be? I think it is in in a against the American grain in some ways to to say slow down or stop. And let's think about this. But I do think it's an entirely reasonable way to to approach this. Because what the the tech companies are trying to sell us is going to have unintended consequences in in. You can certainly imagine it for for something like rental properties. Where of cities are struggling with with having enough affordable housing UC with ridesharing, apps like Uber. And lift that the tech Romney say, oh, this is going to relieve traffic in sometimes can simply by making it easier to grab a car. Rather than walking or taking the subway or something that can actually increase traffic and congestion. So that's a great example net because like with Uber and left. I don't know that anyone would have known what the impacts on congestion would be until they were at scale like we didn't know the human reaction would be, you know, whether they would actually prefer to take an Uber over transit until they were the markets. How do we predict these things when we don't have models to do that? It's a tough problem because sometimes you have to implement these things to learn, but the problems might be. But I do think I do think in general that stepping back and thinking more carefully will at least help us identify some of the problems. So as they begin to manifest themselves cities or governments can act more quickly. And is there something inherent in these technology platforms that were afraid of how they're designed or how we talk that the people who built them talk about them that scares us, you know, until recently, I would have said no, we tend to be very enthusiastic about him. You can see the way people use their phones they're in love with them. Wli very special relationship. I've named my phone. But I do think that in the last couple years as more problems have become manifest that people are getting a little more suspicious about you know, who's controlling these things. Why is it giving me this information wise it force in me to to do these processes as they're programmed? You know, there's also the question of engagement and disengagement I think as more and more things get done through computer screens. They disengage us from the the social processes that. Many people would argue are are the heart and soul of a city in of an urban experience going out in dealing with other people sometimes it's messy. But sometimes you learn things sometimes you have do experiences Erade about this concept called the substitution math. Can you tell us what that's about? Yeah. The substitution myth is a concept that scholars of automation have identified it in basically, what it says is we believe that we can hand over part of a job or part of a task. To a computer in it will just substitute. The computer will just substitute for that particular task. But won't change the nature of the work in the roles of people in what the evidence suggests is that in fact, even just automating a small part of a complex job or task changes a whole lot about it that we don't anticipate a changes the way people do their work. It changes their engagement with the work, and what role they take on even if you're just automating one part of something, and you might think of it as a trivial part, you have to be aware that this could change much much more. And it's hard to predict what that would be there kind of common themes that have come out of the research something called automation complacency as soon as you bring a computer in people tend to vary much trust that the computer will do everything right all the time. So they stopped paying attention. And there's also something that you see over and over again called automation bias we naturally. Believe what comes out of computer? We don't challenge that information sufficiently with our own knowledge with what our own senses are telling us, even for instance in the healthcare arena. A lot of radiologists now rely on computer software to interpret medical images x-rays, and and so forth in what happens is you. Because all of these images are taken digitally now, it's very very easy to run them through an algorithm in the algorithms highlight areas that that might be cancers or other areas of concern on the images on. And then the the radiologist gets the image after it's already been marked up with highlights and everything everybody thought, this would be great, and it turns out to have very very mixed results. Because what happens is that the the radiologists instead of focusing their own eyes and focus in their own experience on the image. Just takes what the? Computers, telling them, his or her eyes are very much focused on the highlighted areas. And they end up missing cancers or or other problems because it quite so binary in the sense of like is tech fishy bad, or is it just often misapplied, I think it can definitely be done well or be done poorly. And so for for instance, in this example, the radiologist in alternative method that is beginning to be used as a result of these studies showing that this is problematic is simply to allow the radiologist to look at the image before it's run through the software in so you get the benefit of the softwares interpretation. But you don't bypass that very human expertise and experience. How can we build better technologies? Nick. I mean, do you think we should just give up on technology altogether? Or is there something we can do to to build better technology for society? So I think the first thing is to distinguish between these different places where you can apply. By technology, some areas are absolutely fine. And we should probably rush ahead. And we already know that we can do things better. But then there are the places where you might want people to interact you might want things to slow down the the kind of dominant design philosophy today is is what is often called technology center design in basically that means you look at anything that people do and you say, what is it possible to have computers do instead of human beings. And then you hand over all of those tasks to computers, and I think this is the the view that a lot of tech companies take the the other way to do it as much more centered on human talents in human fulfillment. And it says, look, what is valuable to society into individuals in this process in this field of whatever it might be. And how can we protect that? And maybe even make it more human and give people even more opportunity to develop talents but also bringing computers to eight. That process to aid the creation of of human talents and human fulfillment. You know, another aspect of this is that the more computerized, everything becomes the less. People have to think about other people in the less shame. They might feel about jacking up prices or rents or discriminating against someone or discriminating against them because you'll be kinda humanizing about it. The the software becomes the kind of filter. That removes you from any concern or care? You know, I think a lot of landlords probably have a bad reputation for very good reason, and to kind of remove them further from the consequences of their actions, or you know, having to feel or sense the consequence of their actions. It seems to me as a dangerous trajectory to be on. So is there anything that gives you hope about the future? Nick, you know, technologies a two edged sword. It can expand our opportunities or it can narrow them and. And it all depends on how we approach it as individuals. But also as a society in, you know, technological enthusiasm has a place for among inventors among programmers among entrepreneurs, but I think realism is much more in. Even some skepticism is much more the approach we should take as a society, and we shouldn't allow the technological enthusiasts to determine the course of technology because it's it's far too important in our lives, then to cede control over this his powerful force. Technopol coming right up. So stick around after the break. This podcast is brought to you by we work.

Derry Nick, helping understand the situation a bit more deeply, I think Nick is right that the tech honeymoon periods. Just over we're becoming increasingly aware that isn't always positive are diction to our phones, which we may joke about it sort of tip of the iceberg. The revelation that Facebook was hijacked by Russian Botts to influence the presidential election. That's big scary stuff. So I think we all need to be more vigilant as individuals cities technologists because beneath the water there is so much more. We don't see and can't always predict. So we can't be tech fools rushing anymore. Actually, I know this organization, though, media not work. It's run by the founder of EBay, and they created a guide for technologists called ethical OS to help them anticipate their technologies impacts on society. I love what it says. Let me just quote, it says that we should spend more time dreading all the ways tech might possibly perhaps just maybe screw everything up. I like that a lot, but it's much attack. You said need that? I think the cities needed to if the cities are worried about future impacts of tech. They should just say, no, the keeping naysayers all the time. That's not being proactive people. Neither city leaders to engage with tech and find new ways of protecting vulnerable communities without just shutting down innovation. I think we agree here, Jim, but that might not be a universal opinion. Because all the reasons Nick gave a lot of folks would rather shut down the tech than risk the N intended consequences. Even if they don't seem that bad, you know, talking to Nick made me keep thinking about the different philosophies to regulating business around the world, particularly to regulate the internet here in the US. We have this anti-regulatory even on the progressive side. They wanna protect entrepeneurship and business growth, unless we have absolute proof that it's going to do some kind of harm. But in Europe, there seems to be more of a philosophy of protecting individuals from the potential impacts of businesses. Even if we don't know what they. They are yet. I mean the sweeping data privacy rules. They just passed are focused a lot more on protecting individuals from harm than on worrying about the impacts to the businesses. It might kill. It kinda makes me question. Our default approach in the US of putting business interests. I don't think it has to be an either or proposition, Molly, I think we can try to do. Both don't you think Seattle reproach their concerns for rent Perry differently there. A lot of other ways Seattle or other cities could react to company like berry, they could allow remember to operate and just monitor it like you suggested maybe requiring the company to share data about their impacts on a regular basis or the city could stop being those parents who say note everything and never let their kids out to play because they get hurt would if they build a safely gun for them. Instead like they could have allowed a pilot specific less vulnerable neighborhood. That's a pretty common approach mini cities. We're using right now, a pilot would also give the city data about what the impact actually is. You know? Data can help them craft regulations later on. But also help them make their case in court, which brings us back to Seattle. Whether the city wins this time or tech does this really is just one shot fired a much larger battle because this fight between tech and cities about one tech solving problems, exploiting them, that's not coming to a peaceful end anytime soon, but tech an approach some of these sensitive arenas, like housing with a little more caution and a little, more empathy. And I hope that cities can approach the tech with a more solution oriented approach in addition to their understandable caution. I think it's a very constructive note to end on. Well, thank you.

3 Things To Do Before Work to Increase Focus and Productivity

"Apple CEO, Tim cook starts his day at three forty five AM every single day. Kevin O'Leary the shark tank investor weights about five forty five AM every day, Richard Branson, wakes up at the same time as that. And some people are dreaming of success and others are waking up and making things happen. That's the difference. Hey, everyone. Welcome back to another episode of on purpose. It's being incredible seeing all of you. Download subscribe rate and review the podcast, thank you so much for being an integral contributor to this community and continuing to invest and commit to your growth and your performance today. We're going to talk about something that I think a lot of you've been asking about a lot of you've been worrying about a lot of you have had challenges with how many of you struggle with your morning routine. How many of you know, that your morning routine could be more impactful, how many of you literally waking up every day, rushing through the morning just to get to work, how many of you are at a point in your life where, you know, that you could be more productive more effective, and more creative if you. Knew what to do before. You got to work. Today's theme is three things to do before work to increase your focus and productivity. Whatever you do for work, focus, and productivity. A so vital and important, none of us want to go to work, and feel tired. None of us want to go to work and feel like we lack energy, and none of us want to get to the end of the day. Only defeated like we could have done a lot more what I'm going to share with you, in this episode is some things that I've been working on for a long time and tips and tricks that I know the most healthy wealthy and wise, people on the planet choose to do before they get to work, so that they can improve their focus improve their productivity and improve their decision making three really important factors to do with work. The morning can be a really tough time. I know how it feels you get out of bed, you don't want to get out of bed, you force. To get out of bed. You've got a rush through brushing your teeth. I mean shower, potentially even skipping breakfast. Because you're running late to be at work. We need to change that experience because the experience you have first thing in the morning is the experience that lost throughout the day. How many times have you had it where you have an incredible morning and you feel credible for the rest of the day? But ninety percent of I experience is when we feel challenged throughout the day. And then we have a challenging often, noon and a challenging evening, we need to start at the route, and that route is our morning routine. For so many of us the morning is not our favorite time. And we often say things like, well, I'm not a morning person, and the truth is, maybe you're not a morning person. But we all have to bring our best energy and have to feel better in the morning. So here we go with three things to do before work to increase your focus and productivity. Take your notes think about it carefully. A lot of this is going to be stuff that. It's fresh and new ideas that are hopefully going to accelerate your growth to having an incredible morning. The first thing that you have to do before work to increase your focus and productivity. Is this wake up one to two hours before your day, actually starts? You've had the advice of waking up early before. But I think that, that can be tough to understand especially because today people work multiple jobs. I know everyone has different timelines and different schedules. But we have such a bad habit of waking up just before a lecture across work, a workout. We're so used to that whether it's because of our time at college or university, we have this habit of waking up just before we need to be somewhere, which means you have just enough time to do everything, which means really, you don't have enough time, which means really, you don't do things properly, which means really, you don't do things meaningfully and purposefully. So because everyone is. Different schedules. I know a lot of people work at night, and a lot of you juggle three jobs while if you're in that situation, this is the advice wake-up one to two hours before your day, actually starts, and now for you may begin. I just thirty minutes before or forty five minutes before but you really want to start hitting that one hour before the incredible thing about this is that you can start to do things, slowly and completely see when you start the morning with speed with a high pressure high stress. Guess what your body's getting programmed to be like that for the rest of the day? You're not going to meetings at high speed high stress. You now having conversations at high speed high stress. It's so important to give yourself that time cushion at the beginning of the day because if you don't you'll be trying to search for it throughout the day how many times. Throughout the day. If you've been saying to yourself, I wish I had more time. I wish I could squeeze this in if only had a couple of extra hours, the only time you're going to find more time is in the morning. Remember that the only time you're going to find more time is in the morning. You'll never find more time throughout the day. If you don't find it in the morning, and the aim is you can now do things, slowly and completely how many times do you do things foster an incomplete. Right. You never end up making the bed you rush. You're brushing your teeth, and don't get round to everything you eat Hof your breakfast. You listen to a quarter of that podcast. Whatever it is that you love doing in the morning, you miss that workout. We don't do things slowly and completely. We do them foster an incomplete, which adds to a stress and pressure waking up early. And again, remember, when I say, waking up early what I mean is waking up before your day starts, and your day starts. Different times is something some of the most successful people in the world, do apple CEO, Tim cook starts his day at three forty five AM every single day. Kevin O'Leary the shark tank investor whites about five forty five AM every day. Richard Branson, wakes up at the same time as that and some people a dream ING of success and others, a waking up and making things happen. That's the difference all of the difference is made in the morning. You see across the studies in the research, the most productive effective and successful people are doing in the morning. Yes, you may have your creative break for at night. Yes, you may have your creative breakthrough and an event in the evening. That's absolutely fine. But that doesn't need to go pasta, set and time when you can get a good amount of sleep and waking up early or waking up before your day starts is not at the expense of good sleep. But what you'll find is that the earlier you wake up the earlier you fall asleep. It's. Just a natural occurrence. You feel more. Tired naturally? One of my favorite analogies in this regard is imagine that tomorrow you woke up with eighty six thousand four hundred dollars in your Bank account. Just imagine it was right there. What would you do with it? I'm sure that you'd want to spend it, maybe you'd invest it. Maybe you share it. But I'm guessing you do something with it. You're not going to just let it stay there. Now, imagine in this imaginary scenario trust me. It's not going to happen just randomly tomorrow that you're gonna wake up with eighty six thousand four hundred dollars in your Bank account. But imagine this at the end of your day that amount disappears. And then the next morning, you have a new fresh eighty six thousand four hundred dollars deposited into your Bank account. What are you gonna do? Are you just going to leave it there? Remember, it's going to disappear at the end of the day. Now the smartest of us most of us will focus on spending it. Investing it growing it and doing something with it. Well, guess what? Just like you could have eighty six thousand four hundred dollars in your Bank account, every day, we have eight hundred six thousand four hundred seconds in our life account, these eighty six thousand four hundred seconds, twenty four hours, sixty minutes in every hour, a deposited into our life accounts every single day. And most of us spend most of that time sleeping lazy or unproductive and that comes from a number of things I know how it feels I've been there before, too. And I still have those moments in days when I'm not being productive. Now, if your body's telling you to sleep if your body's telling you, you're tired, that's fine. We should listen to it, but not if that's become the norm not if that's become the rule. Of course. We all get tired. We all need to feel as we all need to relax and kick back and important to listen to that. But if not feeding our bodies, the right thing, if we're not fueling our bodies with exercise and then they're feeling that way. Then the root of the situation is. Different. It's not enough rest. It's not enough care. One of my favorite thoughts about time is time is what we want most. But what we use worst, and therefore for those of us want to be focused and productive. We focus on waking up one to two hours earlier before our day starts, and as the Buddhist said each morning, we're born again, what we do today is what matters most. Don't worry about all the times you fail. Don't worry about all the times. You've got it wrong. I want you to think about this from tomorrow and the best way to start this process is wake up earlier just by fifteen minutes every week every week Roebuck, your lawn clock by fifteen minutes. No every day. But every week. So if you Carney, wake up at seven, an try and wake up at six forty five. Am for the next week, then for the week off to that trying to wake up at six thirty AM, and so on, and so forth. It's that simple. Just Roebuck your lawn fifteen minutes ever. Every single week. Now, I woke up at four AM three years in a row, and maybe there were a couple of days I woke up later, and there were probably a few I even woke up earlier, but an average for three years, I woke up at four AM every day when I lived as monk just putting it out there this isn't now. I don't wake up that early now. Now, I wake up at six am because I need more sleep, but when I was a monk, and I work about four AM, it also meant that I wanted to sleep by nine pm, or ten pm when we sleep earlier before midnight, we get Deepa better rest. And I know so many people who in the mood to unwind switch on a show an up past midnight, not because you have to be because you end up being that way just by default. None of us have to be awake often midnight. If our work doesn't make us do that. And so if we're doing it out of choice, we have to realize that we're losing out on deep Remm sleep that we can get if we sleep before midnight. And I get this, this may be. Totally impractical. If you have young children, and I totally understand that this doesn't apply to you. But for all the rest of us start setting you alarm, fifteen minutes earlier every single day. It will force you to switch off that show at night, too, because you'll be tired read instead of watching that show that will put you to sleep. Don't look at your phone before bed. And if you wake up early you naturally start to feel tired, earlier research, suggests many successful people wake up well before the day begins by doing the same, you can make time to exercise, walk your dog meditates, spend time with family, and get a jump start on the day before you get one out by your other duties that extra time you will never find in the middle or the end of the day, you will only find that time in the morning. So the first thing you need to do before work to be more focused and make better decisions, and be more productive is get a headstart on your day by starting your day one to two hours before it actually needs to stop the second thing you need to do is probably one of my favorites. Start you'll morning the evening before listen carefully. Start your morning, the evening before see we think on morning starts when we get up actually your morning started the night before, you know what's more powerful than a morning routine. An evening routine and evening, routine sets you up for an incredible morning. And this is one of the things we all miss out on, we have a terrible evening routine, which naturally leads to about morning routine, which leads to a bad day, but my transforming our evening routine, we can have a phenomenal morning and therefore have a phenomenal day. You can actually program, how you want to wake up the night before, and I. Want to focus on three key areas. One of the first is work if you want to wake up in the morning, and be more effective and productive, and focused at work. You can program that from the night before Kevin O'Leary, who I spoke about earlier from shark tank actually said this before I go to sleep. I write down three things that I have to get done the next morning before I take a call writer, text or an Email or talk to anyone else except my family, and they give you random things like your towards school, and ask about, whether she's done this, or that, or close, a deal, what I found was once you get those three things done the rest of your day becomes amazingly productive. We can throw Roma minds to be better at work, the next day by figuring out what we want to achieve the night before when you make your to do list, your to be list, and you're creating that the night before when you wake up the next morning, you, no longer have to push or force, your mind to figure it all out when it's just. Warming up. You already know what you need to get on, with this is what we forget, when you wake up in the morning, your mind needs time to wake up in each time to warm up. So therefore when you trying to get it to wake up in the warm up, you can't really push it to come up with your to do list effectively. But if you have that from the night before, you can get on with it straight away, because you already aware or conscious of what actually needs to be done another way that you can start your morning. The evening before is by deciding what to wear as monks. We wore the same thing every single day. We had two sets of robes, one you wash one you wear and you keep alternating. Now I have a lot more close in that. I've a lot more biggest selection of trainers, or sneakers as you call it here. I've, I've a biggest selection of all those things I have to be conscious about what I wear, but one of the things I've done to simplify that is, first of all, I have a lot of the same thing in different colors that really makes it easy. I like wearing the same pair of joggers every single day overseeing the same pad, the same type of pay. You get the point that I wear every single day that makes it easier for me to decide what I'm comfortable in when you're deciding what you want to wear the night before you are removing the challenge from the morning if you're spending your morning time deciding what to eat for breakfast, what to wear to work and then to figure out what you're going to do an achiever at work. You're adding so many things to a mind in the morning that it doesn't have time to wake up a warm-up. You're pushing it into what is known as decision fatigue, so early in the day, and I want to share some research with you, that's going to blow your mind about this subject in a study by the National Academy of sciences, psychologists examined, the factors that impact, whether or not a judge approves a criminal for parole. They looked at one thousand one hundred and twelve rulings over a ten month period. The rulings were made by judge who decide whether a criminal. Can be released from prison to parole. It would be natural thing that the decisions would be based on the type of crime or the laws that were broken or the demeanor and behavior of the prisoner inside the courtroom. But actually even those were important the research found one important thing that had a huge impact on the result. And there's quite surprising. It was the time of day, the decision was being made listen to this carefully at the start of the day. The judge was likely to give a favourable ruling about sixty five percent of the time by the middle and end of the day, a criminal getting a favorable ruling steadily dropped zero. Right. That's zero. But then straight after lunch, the judge would be reviewed and it would jump back to sixty five percent now I feel sorry for all of those people in between even though they are prisoners. They've done something wrong. I feel bad for them that they necessarily did not get a fair ruling the crazy. Thing is that this was true for more than one thousand one hundred cases and this was not affected by, whether it was a murder a rape or theft criminals got more favorable hearings in the morning or immediately after food breaks. What is this telling us about ourselves? What can we learn from this when it comes to looking at decision for t even though you don't have to sit in a hearing and decide whether someone is given break from prison to go on parole. We are affected by the time we make decisions and the amount of decisions we make there are two factors here, the time, we make decisions if we're making decisions right off to eating breakfast, a good one. When we've got that extra time in the morning, if we're making decisions after lunch when we're well grounded when we're happier with going to make better fairer decisions. But if we're making decisions when we've rushed when we're pushed one with pressured when we're forced we could end up making worse. Decisions. The second thing here is recognizing the amount of decisions made if your making multiple insignificant smaller decisions every morning like what to wear what to eat for breakfast and lunch. What time you're going to go to the gym? If you're figuring out all of back in the morning, what class, you're going to if you're doing that all in the morning, you basically reducing your brain and minds ability to make better decisions when you get to work. So if you're getting to work unfocused, and if you're getting to work an unproductive, that's because you using all of your focus and productive on these small tasks in the start of the day. All of these things can be decided the evening before. What are you going to wear? What are you going to eat for breakfast or lunch way? You're going to eat where you're going to exercise in the morning and what class you're going to take. If you can start deciding all of that the night before you again, to get such an increase. Edible headstone the day and not experienced decision fatigue. I want you to be saved from this decision fatigue. Because guess what the more decisions you make the harder it gets. And the more small decisions you make every day, the more of your energy is drained into those and the more energy is kept away from the bigger more powerful decisions. This is something that we all struggle with it, something that we all go through. It's a mistake, there were all making and it can be simplified by fifteen minutes before you go to bed by half an hour before you're getting ready to go to bed just focusing on what you're going to do. Actually, you can even do it at the end of your workday, instead of rushing out at the end of your work day because you want to get home and spend more time at home. Simply using the last fifteen minutes or thirty minutes of your work day to plan the day after is going to mean you more relaxed. Less distracted when you get home and allowing yourself to be more focused and productive the next day and the third and final thing that you can do before work to increase your focus and productivity. Of course, we'd be meditation. But specifically I want to add this you do a gratitude visualization. I don't just want you to make a list of three things you're grateful for, I don't just want you to make a list of things that you're thankful for I want you to visualize an experience of gratitude. In one study, scientists instructed a group of people with the neuromuscular condition to keep a daily gratitude journal while another group kept a daily journal recording hassles of their days. The first group reported being twenty five percent happier compared to those participating in the hassle condition, according to the study they exercised, an average of one point five hours more and reported less physical symptoms. Like headaches shortness of breath and chest pain. It's incredible. How much gratitude can totally upgrade our life. So what I want you to do. And you could do it right now as long as you're not driving, or walking, you can close your eyes, if you're driving a walking or doing anything else that requires you to have your eyes open. You can do with your eyes open. I want you to visualize a moment. That's happened in your life that you deeply grateful for this could be being with family. It could be an incredible moment of chievements. It could be the feeling of being rewarded recognized whatever it may be. And I want you to take yourself back to that moment. I want you to visualize the sights smell the sense here. The sounds, I want you to take yourself back to that place in life where you felt extremely grateful, and I want you to really embody how that felt for you. Because guess what? When we're pleasant in a situation we can bring it back through memory and experience it. And when we re experiencing, we can re experience, those emotions and feelings of gratitude in a much deeper way, when you start your day off with gratitude. You're going to look for opportunity more than you are obstacles, when you start your day off with gratitude you're going to look for moments of creativity. More than you are to complain when you start your day off with gratitude. You're going to focus on growth rather than thinking that everything is pulling you down. Start your day with a visualization of how you're going to gratefully go to every situation and notice how you lead with that when you're challenged by all the things that are going to come up anyway. These are the three things I highly recommend doing before work to increase your focus and productivity, the first one, waking up earlier than you need to is. Going to help you do things slowly and completely. It's also going to give you that more amount of time you need to exercise to set intentions to meditate, whatever you want to do before work. The second thing you want to do is start your morning, the evening before you can do that by doing your work the day before it work by what you wear figuring out that the night before what you're going to eat. And actually one more that I want to add, you can actually do it to the words, you tell yourself if you say to yourself before you go to sleep. I'm so tied a Kombi bother to go to work tomorrow is so hard. It's so tough. If you're going to sleep thinking that you're programming yourself to wake up that way in the morning, a habit and practice that I started as really transformed. My life is every night. I go to sleep saying, I am relaxed energized and focused. I am calm enthusiastic and. Active when I'm repeating the words that I want to wake up with my mind is setting an alarm for my body to wake up with that intention. We set our alarm clock the night before, so that we can wake up in the morning at a particular time in the same way, we have to set in tension the night before in the same way we have to set how we feel the night before we've to program, our mind to wake up with a certain belief and a certain energy, the night before, when we start our morning, the evening before we're also able to avoid decision fatigue. We plan our days from work words, what we're going to wear what we're going to eat and are scheduled perspective the night before it saves us so much energy so much time. The next day, would you can then use for other things, and finally, a visualization of gratitude, not just thinking about it, but really experiencing that gratitude again, so that you can really start your day feeling abundant fee. Feeling grateful and feeling empowered. These are the three things I wanted to leave you with please test these every day. Try them out experiment with them. Remember these things for you to work with. You're not going to do all three of them in one week. Please don't try that. Try just one of them for one week at a time and see how your life changes. It's an experiment take notes share your advice, share your learnings.

Material 191: Doing the Deed

"Uh-huh. Good morning afternoon or evening police delete as appropriate. Hello there. You are. Now listening to episode one nine one of the material podcast, and I am indianap- go, and I am Florence ion. We're we're doing we're doing a special episode of material after dark, so if you've got if you've got some like smooth baseline like jazz to play in the background. Boom, boom, boom. Because it's after midnight where I'm recording it as well after dinnertime because we both have had a pretty big day flow has had a bigger day than I did. Because today earlier today we had the Samsung event with various phones with the number ten on them where released and suddenly all the world's problems just faded away because we had new shiny objects to focus on and. So the first question, I have we'll talk all about like the announcements after the ad, but the as as journalist as fellow journalist, there's the most important question did they feed you and was it finger food or did they have like those really great mini sandwiches like Microsoft, usually has their events, Andy they had poached chicken and like Kice cakes. There you go. I kid you not they it was very interesting event. It was very I do I'm going to save it for the moment the bait event, but I will say that. It was quite an event. Now, they held it at the Bill Graham civic auditorium, which is one of the biggest venues in San Francisco, and that's usually where they host lake for those of you that listen to eletronic dance music or idiom. You might know Jack says TSA sto- that's typically where they have like the really big boomy acts, and I don't particularly like the venue because I don't think the acoustics roller grade in there. But the base is pretty good. So you know, you you give you take. I guess you just kinda go there for specific genres? I mean music, it's a it's a legendary rock club. And it's San Francisco in two thousand nineteen which means that they've kind of band rock and roll and dancing to make more spaces available for big tech events corporate events. And I I was only watching like the livestream after it was live. But it seemed like this venue was absolutely working against every honest and sincere attempt each one of those presenters was making to create excitement because it would be you could you could almost see that on the prompters. There would be like the phrase in parentheses, hold for applause like, and so we went to work cited to pronounce for the first time the Samsung folding galaxy S ten that crickets crickets, crickets than he would like sort of raise his hands. And then everybody would kinda start applauding like probably because of the size of the venue. Where it's kinda hard to get everyone together. Or maybe they just weren't taking Apple's advice and saying make sure that the first thirteen rows are always packed with about eight nine hundred apple employee's. That is the thing they only had one section for influencers. And they were all wearing white sweatshirts and yelling when they were supposed to I'm assuming when they were instructed the rest of us were all just. Here's the thing. Folks, that are listening a lot of people are on their way to Barcelona right now for another show called mobile world congress and this is typically when Samsung does like the big to do about its flagship. Instead what it did is this year. It had an event now. Okay. I understand Google podcast. But our promises all related we will get to why this is all related besides the whole Android thing. But it is related because Samsung is an important player in this in this fear and has helped propagate the Google Android operating system. So that's why we pay mind to them. Anyway. So it's I forgot what I was saying the Andy. Just it just I felt myself having so much sympathy for these presenters because again, I I would say that's that's pretty exciting to I again, I'm as detached and emotional as as a journalist is supposed to be also I'm old been doing this for multiple decades. And so I'm jaded as hell, but I would still think that while we're going to see something we have never seen before which is a folding screen a phone size device that actually literally unfolds into a tablet and that was getting nothing. And then it seemed like four or five minutes later, they mentioned that it was available in four colors, and boom that got the big immediate share. So it's it's hard to know like where people's were the dopamine triggers are in that audiences head or again, the the the fact that they were on this. There were these there flies these people in the middle of a huge screen. That went to the back wall then underneath their feet. So it was people will always looking at the screen. I'm saying they're Michael Jackson himself. Pre scandal would have had a difficult time like holding at grabbing the attention of that audience. Okay. But but back but back to the food. So the the bacon rep things. Well, let's just give me one second. Because my my one of my one of my Google smart, speaker's going on bus other. We we don't have to delete this. But I have to prepare to mute something. I still wanna make bacon rep smokey's. No. Thank you. Bacon, wrapped smokey's. Okay there. Bacon. Rupp's smokey's. That sounds absolutely indulgent. Are we? He's anyway, are we talking about like smoked sausages? Hang on. I got a big in wrapped Email light. When other podcasts do this on their podcasts. Sometimes I'm like, hey, let's roll with it. So I don't know. Maybe we should just wrote this gym just audience in on the madness of flow. Time consuming, but well worth at the Brown sugar and bacon grease combined beautifully and give each such a great taste, always a speech dot com. So so literate literally is like a can of little smokies wrapped in bacon of their beef. Cocktail wieners sliced bacon Brown sugar who only three steps for the two point five refrigerate two-thirds of the bake until needed. It is easier to rep the wieners. Cold bacon, rap each cocktail Weiner, with a piece of bacon insecure toothpick place on a large baking sheet, sprinkled Brown sugar. Generously. Overall, bigger forty minutes until the sugar is bubbly bubbly. Yes. This is this again, we're going back to how difficult it is for Samsung or any company because hey, we got four new phones and one is like a new device category never seen before. But three Musa. Potato Pettah and a half new phones. But getting is that now we've set up if we if we had ended the show with this recipe for bacon, wrapped smokey's, a an appetizer or that or pass around horse divorce that I'd never heard of before. But now cannot get out of my head. Nobody listening to this podcast if they are nonvegetarian if they've ever tasted bacon or meat before. No one is going to be thinking about anything. But these bacon wreck smokies. I kind of like now have to make them just we can talk about them next week. Just for for pay off how healthy tomatino Turkey soup with Minton sign. Very, okay. I'm sorry to all the Jerry out there that we are just. There's nothing we're not dissing vegetarianism at any any bite. I just I feel bad for like putting it out there because I'm putting this content to people's ears. You know, they don't they don't consume it. They shouldn't have to consume it their ears. I'm so tired everyone. It's been a really long day. Yeah. I was at the opening of the very first apple store. That's where I met and had my one major interaction with Steve Jobs and this because Steve Jobs were there that all the d'oeuvres were vegetarian. Really? It was an interesting. It was a confident choice given that they were he was that apple is trying to promote the idea that this was a good idea right in the face of like other computer companies having tried to do company stores and failed gateway had had just recently shut down all of its stores. If you give us a bacon wrapped thing, or even if we just know that somewhere there is somebody with a tray of bacon, wrapped whatever or little quiches like circulating around the room that puts us in the receptive mood, particularly because this was remember with six PM. And like the reason why had the stent interaction with Steve Jobs because everybody else was like at dinner, and I decided that while the event starts at six going to get there early. I bet they'll be food there. Wow. Wow. Andy. And then you had that that chance interaction with Steve Jobs. That's kind of an incredible story. I love that. But you know, I do agree with the late jobs is choice to have vegetarian food served because oftentimes the safest choice. I always prefer like a vegetarian leaning cuisine or spread because it's safe choice. Not only, you know, because meet sometimes you don't know whereas coming from or what it's going to do. But also because sometimes it's the Caesar to just not deal with the meat. You know, just right. Just keep it simple. Just keep it veggies and starches will also you know, that there's going to be a subset of people that will not eat meat, but the people who have meat in their diet are capable of eating delicious. Dr appetizers exactly solve a problem. Like dogs cats on the other. I would only really really upset if they were serving dog or cat meat either, which your pets dog or cat. I would know that they've got some problems with their bookkeeping if they're opening cans of little Friskies Andy connect show, you when you coy. Yes, please. Yes. Did come home. They lovely. Gift I understand. I did I came over the pill. It's a really big pill to swallow at what's actually inside the pill are two other little pills. Directionally probably swallow bowl. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a headline on a tech blog someday soon this now this is a terrible thing for me to put into the world child. Swallows galaxy buds sorry just kidding. We don't wanna put that into the world's. But yeah, I got the galaxy buds as a thank you gift for coming to the events. I haven't tried them yet haven't even tried putting them in my ear. I've just been honestly opening opening and closing the little pillbox that they come in because it's credibly satisfying. It's just like this really satisfying snap, you know. And it's like you can feel the magnet in there. And you know, what else is amazing is that? Let's see if. The magnets. There's magnets also holding the ear buds in your voting. They're holding them up on the top of the case. You're you're opening the case upside down there clinging to the roof as though they fear death. If they let go there so tiny look at these me NC, they are they are. I mean, you could swale this this. This is yourself against this. Good. Don't don't give like YouTube, creators ideas. This is a night show folks here. Eight buds challenge. Oh, no. Powered by AK g. 'cause that's what it says the locks. Achey g both upper and lower GI. If you do swallow these to take my word for this. You also will not want to put it in your ear afterward because if there's one opening in your body more disgusting than ear hole not gonna finish that sentence. 'cause I don't need to exactly such different five in the evening. So I'm going to tell you a little bit about these buds. So they come in there a little charging back as I said, they look like a little pillbox. They have adaptive dual mikes. So there's one on the outside and one on the inside for each of the buds. And so the outer Mike is used to capture your voice dumb. Netflix. And then the inner Mike captures your voice when the environment around you gets louder, and it needs to, you know, needs to be physically closer to your mouth, or I suppose, it's technically it's reading the inside of your brain. And getting the sound that way at bone conduction or something I'm making okay, I'm making that last part up. And I'm just kind of imagining it. Samsung's that five hours of call time, six hours of music when I said that to my husband, he said, that's it. So that's his that's his assessment of the situation. These are big integrated. I haven't set them up because it requires use of the smart things up. That's what it says on the box. And I saw that. And I was like I'll deal with these later because I saw that. I was like I don't want to the typical look every time after review or evaluate something Samsung, it's like. How many accounts my going to have to sign up for how many fake Email addresses? I'm going to have to create in g mail in order to just pair. These ear buds with my phone. Pay of user agreements and privacy contracts by going to have to scrutinize just to be able to hear podcasts from my phone through the Samsung devices, so fun fact, I actually a couple nights ago went on a so like when I'm having when I'm really stressed or having a hard time I shop because. Consumerist Elenio, I like instant gratification. These are things that happen when you were raised in the suburbs. I was around malls. And just knowing that those things could bring you instantaneous feelings of wonder, so I buy a bunch of random Xiaomi stuff from Allie express because I was just thinking to myself. You know, these brands are like so big outside of the United States Jimmy in particular. And I've been creating a list of all the weird stuff that comes up in searches. And so I bought a travel power drill. It's like this. It's like a it's like a size of a pen, right? Revel powered refuse. It's like the size of a pen. And it comes with the different screwdrivers for taking apart computers and stuff, but it's a power screwdriver. Sees me not a power chill as power for. But still on the weird spectrum. Yes, it's the size of a pencil. It's like, ooh. This is this is going to be interesting. So I bought that. And then I also bought. A like one, bud. It's like a one Xiaomi, bud. And it's you know, it's like a bluetooth headset. What you can listen to music through it. You can take your calls through it. Because I was thinking like this is what I could wear like when I go to the grocery store, and I wanna listen to music and one year, and like have my other ear open case people talk to me into like here. What's going on, you know, because I'd like to be distracted and winter. So anyway, now, I'm not comparing all expresses pretty cool using a use of Allott and not just for buying things. Oftentimes from will like pitch me on like, oh, we've got this. Great kickstarter. And just check it out you consider and I say Halley express. Almost never liked promote a Kickstarter because they're almost always just garbage either garbage. Or there's something that you will be able to buy freely with without any risk whatsoever. Whenever it ships. But it's always oh, wow. That's a really great innovative design for a folding travel bluetooth keep or he said while he's typing Elliott expressed dot com. Search folding bluetooth keyboard like oh there. It is unit set for at nine dollars and seventeen cents per unit in units of one hundred. And this person's Kickstarter is looking for eighty thousand dollars or funded at hundred thirty thousand dollars, and even so they will probably blow their deadline by at least four or five. Yeah. It's but I I will I will say this is nothing to do with Android. But hey, this is this is this is material after dark. Iphone? We got really weird. Also, I found a whole bunch of companies through Elliott express that will print huge photo prints on canvas. Like what over here you would pay for like, maybe an eleven by seventeen. And so I and the and the great thing about an you probably have experience to with the pen sized Electric's driver. It's like I have a good feeling is a sixty percent. Sixty percent chance. This is total garbage. But for six dollars and twelve cents free shipping included, and I'll have to wait about a month for it. I'm willing to gamble six dollars and twelve cents just to see how well it works. Okay. But so if people now so this one was like about I dunno Bob forty inches by twenty six inches like a canvas print and sixteen dollars. And I said, okay, I thought this is probably not going to be very good at all. But it's worth sixteen dollars to see like how long will take believe and get it. Will it be like really really terrible. When I check back on this site, two months after I get is this going to be like, hey, am I gonna see a copy of my photo as one of the prince you can buy pre made, and it was actually very very good so much. So that now I'm sort of planning a I'm sort of planning out solutions to decorating problems that I have like in my house because again, it has those huge huge one hundred ten year old ceilings, which means that if you have a space that you don't know what to do with. You can't just like put your high school. Diploma against the wall because it will make that that the even seem even less significant because it will still have six feet a wall on op of it. But I can I now have this this this photo of a piece of architectural sculpture that I took like five years ago, and I just grabbed off a flicker as something just to to send this company. It's now like these huge mural sized print. That's hanging over on the wall over my like, sixty inch TV fills out the space nicely. And I went. I'm actually making myself hunting list of pieces of art in Boston museums that I want to steal in order to make beautiful prince of like, there's a huge the Boston public library is filled with these huge gorgeous murals. And so I didn't sneak in there. I just was in there like that's where we record NPR like every every other week or so so after the show went up there with my camera and tripod I took what turned out to be a seventy something megapixel photo of this mural with like just by taking with a zoom lens all the way to maximum seeking see individual brushstrokes, and then piecing them together and Photoshop so I have this. What has turned into like fifty something megapixel Niro sized scan of it that I'm touching up that will become a six foot by two foot print that will go someplace interesting, so yeah, go go expressively at least it's not like. Spending money at bien h photo, which really can add up if you've if you've got a credit card with a high limit, you wanna stay away from like at Rama in these other really high end sort of places because you can do me. Don't remind me to remind me if you wanted to do some damage with some of these buds, by the way, they're hundred thirty bucks. To see. And I will be trying these out wearing them testing them. Probably right about him. Some. Next next week. I will have I will have a review of this bacon. Remm smokey's recipe. And you'll talk about what we'll each put our thing in the in our ears and see which ones at least my ears will will smell like Kittery smoked maple bacon. Exactly. Whereas will smell like. South Korean commerce, by the way, they had mineral water at the event. Children ready in in bottles or have like bottle. Florida this. This wasn't a recycling thing. This was a thank you for the little like wide little Cup that I'm definitely going to kick over and go onto the power plug with. I really need something to put a cap on. And put it in my pocket. Thank you. Actually. We're hard to please. Give me free water. Oh, complain about the container. You give me the free. It's a hard job. I mean, look how tired I am and illegal. Yes. This is going to be very interesting podcast. We we should get to her for stat before we talk about him. We'll talk about content after we talk about our for central. Yes.

Okay. Well, I decide I I went I did the post live cast of the. The Samsung event. Obviously. Well, and I thought that was kind of more interesting breaking it down by new ideas for saying in the twenty nineteen galaxy line as opposed to individual models going and going through just quickly hitting individual models. You got you got your galaxy S ten e at the bottom of the range of seven hundred forty nine bucks. They galaxy S ten s ten plus which is like the the the famous Samsung super-duper phone, then you got your galaxy S ten five G price to be announced. And then you get the magical mystery mystery galaxy fold that's taking headlines by oh one those nine hundred eighty dollars for a phone look out of touch the industry is when actually eight hundred ninety nine dollars for the ten and nine hundred ninety nine for the ten plus not that much better. But so, but it's a good wide range of stuff. But it's more intr-. Acting for. I thought there was a lot of really good new technologies. New design is that we're kind of scattered across these things. So first up. Let's talk about the folding screen Samsung decided to call this phone the galaxy fold which honestly scudo to them because it could have been like the galaxy f-. I'm sure I'm sure that they were kicking around like the galaxy origami or the galaxy crane like no, it's the folding phone will call the galaxy fold and so you got your it's. Do they do they have these out like on the show floor for people to look at? It was just onstage. Okay. So all we got hands on with was galaxy S ten E S ten as ten plus the S ten five G does not exist until later this year. I think the only people have pictures of that are outlets that were pre briefed on sorry. Any video this afternoon set in what's supposed to be a swanky New York apartment. But it's clearly just a set that they've built somewhere behind of any. That's how the sausage made is made everyone, and then the galaxy fold was basically just. I mean, it was there because if anybody who watched the event if you watched it online, or maybe you followed along afterwards there were couple of demos that happened with folks sitting in like this little made up a little YouTube studio is like a little made up YouTube studio, and when it was time for their demo that would be projected onto the big screen. The white space that white space was on the stage. It was just like a specifically made spot. So those were real demos that were happening in real real time. And that was the only time we actually saw any of that stuff. And then for like, a brief second when it was in DJ coz hand, and I was sitting close enough within eyesight to see it like a plane is unfortunately, I couldn't really capture it with like my pixel three. I didn't have zoom lens. But again, this is definitely the galaxy fold is for the Samsung lover love simply love a the person who is hopelessly devoted who Samson can do no wrong or they're just really really into the idea of being a first adopter of the of foldable phone. I think it would be really interesting to hear from the people who are forking out money as kind of like a hobby. I I don't think that came out, right? I'm so tired, by the way, our friend and former broadcaster Russell von which I'm sure that he has said it would be irresponsible for us as a company, particularly as an important podcast app. Not to. These. So that we can have it as a test bed after all this is the convertible phone is indeed and a Google Android sanctioned form factor. It's trail. It is now. Yeah. That's true. After sampling made the announcement. I just really I don't know. I don't see it. It's so so it's it looks a little bit ungainly. It's a match checkbook it looks like it's about the size of a checkbook only like three or four checkbooks because it's very very thick like the in thickness. It looked like it was about the size of to like twenty eighteen galaxy phones stacked one on top of the other except it has a kind of a cool in not too bad, which left that attitude. It's compared to like the acts on one. At one key piece of hardware. Just looked ridiculous. It looked like a piece of a role, but it is thick enough to actually have a nice bold Samsung logo on the spine of the thing. But the so the form factor. It's you got your it's a four point six inch. It's a conventional phone with a single four point six inch display when it's folded up which means that it's got lots of black space on the above the top of the screen and lots of backs black space on the bottom of the screen. But then when you open it, it reveals a seven point three and Shrek square display another thing. But one of the things I kind of was impressed by it. And again, this was not only a demo just to put just make sure we perspectives that the expectations correctly. Not only was it a demo. It was a demo where absolutely nobody was allowed to touch this thing except for like two people except for like the guy no-one no-one outside the stage because I was expecting to see like, maybe one of the. Top three phone blogger was like Marcus Brownlee would find himself again in a fake New York City apartment studio, and at least be able to hold it. But I have not seen a single video anywhere, and that would have been primed to drop early. So again, take this with a grain of salt. I was impressed that they were willing to demonstrate set the expectation in the demo of hey, look, I've got I've got a good result with Google maps. And I've got the goodwill maps app opened in my phone and the phone configuration. But now, I wanna see it in more detail. So now open it up, and it's not as though there is a black screen and then a little blink. And then it's there it's like they open it up, and it's Ziff. It was already preparing the tablet size or tablet style view of Facebook or Google maps or Spotify or whatever. So there was no delay whatsoever. And it did look like it was a very useful size screen. So if I were much more mobile oriented, if I were saying gosh, I just wish. I had a phone that had slightly larger screen. I'm taking this nine point three inch nine point seven inch ipad with may have Rego because I sometimes just need a little extra space just for watching movies or just for answering Email that would be a credible idea to me. It didn't look for dick Yetlis. I also was examining it like this Bruder film. 'cause this is the only video the only pictures we have of the functioning device, and I thought I saw like a shallow little crease in the middle of the screen that assume as it's really real as soon as the screen is really really lit up. It was hard to notice the when the spring was a little bit dimmer. It's like you could see a little bit of a depression in the middle there. I don't know whether that's something that is going to be ironed out JoJo in the official release. Or if that's just something you're going to deal with or something that doesn't even really matter when you're actually using it, but that was sort of interesting. To to to look at. It's. The other thing I thought they did again in terms of demo was by default. I think the big hit is going to be again, you're in you're in Spotify. Or you're in YouTube, you open up the screen, and now you're watching this movie in a big screen mode. But you could also do three up three at a time app. Multitasking where few magin the square some point three inch screen is divided into thirds. The left two-thirds is sort of a large tablet view, and the remaining third is to let's say two thousand thirteen size phone screens like one of the other see you can have. So you can't have Google docs, writing a document or your mail writing one thing, but also have Spotify and one and have like a WhatsApp going in another which I thought was an interesting way to sort of make good use of all that display. I didn't I I have to say that. I didn't see anything that was ridiculous about it except for the price which. Which I could even sort of justify giving that this is real. This is never really been done before we have no idea how much these screen displease screens costs. How many of them they have to throw away before they get one that passes inspection, the their they will come with twelve gigabytes of ram? So you're not going to front out. We're not gonna run out of application ram five hundred twelve gigs of storage. So you could justify it as while. I am really why do I do feel as though I can leave behind by my window surface tablet, because I barely use it at all. It's only because I need a larger screen some of the time. I did think it was weird that there was no SPN because if you think about the most natural device Samsung makes for a pen, how cool it would be to have this thing to be able to actually write on it and draw. It. Boy, this is the year of the note ten. This is the year the note ten oh my gosh. You know, it's also worth noting by the way that they they uncurbed S ten so the actual as ten is not like the the edges are no longer champ. I reset never say that word. They're no longer just like that. Nice little curve on the sides. Like, you know, like they're just kinda going down. And I also they weren't really doing anything that curve. Anyway. Yeah. It was just making it harder to use the phone. So I'm saying the ten is like a little bit easier to use. I don't know. Okay. Back to this foldable phone. I would not. I mean, if listen if you have money to burn on this thing, honestly, I think you could use your money for better things. Because you know, you do you really wanna like is that what you want your claim to fame your claim to fame to be is. I was the first one with the foldable phone don't know. Well, it's when usually nothing that that buying this phone was anywhere on my possibilities list. But usually even when I'm trying to figure out how to recommend something to people. I always think. Okay. Well, let's let's just look at this academically that let's say that it's not that I want to buy the galaxy fold. Let's say that I've got two thousand dollars to spend on a solution to the problem of I've I don't wanna have to walk around with a laptop wherever I go like, okay. So let's start off by saying let's buy the let's by close to the top of the line galaxy S ten or wait for the galaxy S ten note with the SPN. And now, I will still have six hundred dollars leftover. So now, you've got money leftover for a small size tablet, which will certainly be able to take with you. When you go places or you'll have room for X, certain accessories or services that will kind of lighten your load or lightening the burden of not traveling with a notebook. It's there. It's I don't again. I don't think it's ridiculous, given what kind of device it is given that this is the first device of its kind. And that there are a great number of people who will spend eight hundred dollars on a sweater for God's sake. That there are people for whom an extra thousand dollar people for whom even thousand dollars for a phone is ridiculous or even twelve hundred dollars for phone is ridiculous. But as the iphone ten prove, they're also plenty people for whom the extra two hundred fifty dollars extra three hundred dollars was not even something they've really had to think about and I'm sure there are the people who are kind of in the same mindset. I hope that these are the sort of people who also don't mind that this thing breaks after eight months or s to be swapped out two or three times or the software doesn't. Yeah. I mean, that's that's we'll and we'll get to this again with the indisp- lay ultrasonic fingerprint reader, but of that other these other devices have but Sam I don't associate Samsung with getting new hardware features right right out of the gate. I associate with them having shipping target and making that target and then either using the next year to either improve it to the point which should have been at the original release date or shipping. The thing that they actually wanted to ship instead of this stopgap measure like face ide-. You know, they did not have face ide-. Right. But they cited this would be a good thing to have during the galaxy S eight demo, so let's just have let's just say that we've got this feature, and it didn't really work and the first time they had fingerprint readers it kinda worked. But kind of really didn't. So anytime the Samsung comes out with something that's brand brand new. That's hardware based I. Yeah. I don't know that it's junk I'm saying that I have to keep whenever I've right respect about it. I have to say keep in mind that they might not really have it working as well as it would if it were pixel phone or fit were on the phone, which is why I think it's it's absurd. That's on sale already. However, maybe it's not observed because here's the thing. You know, it was really exciting to see to see them open up with that. Because I was just thinking for the end. They didn't save it for the end. I'm glad they just came out out of the gates with it. Like, hey, here's the full phone. You were asking us about this philosophy of months. That's what we intended for you to do. And we planned this whole thing. Thank you for doing exactly as we planned. But in all honesty, it's going to be a good thing for for innovation because we've been talking a lot about how smartphones feel like they have sort of stalled. And I think part of the reason they've stalled is because perhaps it is that they have peaked. Are so useful. Now, a rather there. So ubiquitous and there's such a integral part of human life. Like, this is it this is how they evolved. This is how we've evolved to use them as tools in our life. And now we have to kind of figure out new ways to consolidate these things, and this is just a step in. This is a step in a new direction, which I think is is a good thing. I I think generally that's a good thing technology to to do that. I don't think that this is a useless technology. I think is a very useful thing. I think it's going to be very useful in the future. I just feel like it's so darn early. But at the same time, I think this is just a response. This is Samsung's response to to its army of fans, and and to those who just are absolutely. Into gadgets, and or willing to drop the money for this sort of thing the way that they would drop all that money on a gold. Apple watch actually, as I'm contemplating things that I have written already or will be writing later tonight. I did absolutely think about like the solid gold apple watch. And I like is it okay? For me to use this as another excuse to explain how stupid a product that an and borderline embarrassing product the gold apple watch was and I'm willing to say, yes. Absolutely. Because the only thing the gold the twelve thousand dollars solid gold apple watch. That's all that it exactly. It looked exactly the same as the one that I pay for exactly the same software. Same features. The only difference was that it was made out of gold and cost twelve thousand dollars. And you got concierge service when you picked this, which is like, this is a really innovative new thing. Basically. It's you're right. It is radically new, and I I guess listen. If you are listen to our podcast, and you're Persson who is planning on on doing the deed and getting the galaxy folds when it is available. You know, let's talk. I wanna I wanna hear your story. I wanna know your use case because here's the thing. I posted this on Instagram today because I've just been like posting stuff chance Ceram again. I guess and first of all I heard from not one not two, but three of my. Cousins have a lot of cousins, by the way. My mother's side of the family has a lot of children. So a lot of cousins. I heard from a bunch of friends at a lot of a lot of drool face like on's a lot of heart face icons. Honestly, I think this is really exciting people. And so look the folding phone it is not just a unicorn like it is a thing. And yes, it costs a bunch of money. But you know, what it's good for all of us. So. I'm really keen to see because it's not just the people who have to have the newest thing. I it's also going to be again people like Russell who are like software developers. And also like hardward designers who worked for apple who worked for Google Virk for who are going to say. Okay. So now, we have an actual practical functioning version of this. What's working as users? What's working for us and ask designers? Let's use it. What do we what does give us for ways that we can take a phone that even if even if it's not necessarily a phone that has this brand new style folding alleged screen, what if we've had these idea we've had these kind of sketchy ideas for just book style devices that have to foreign screens separated by mechanical hinge? But now that I'm actually carrying this around on on the apple or the Google campus every day, I suddenly know exactly what we should. The reason why we should build it. If I like that I'm really excited to see that bridge device that people like you, and I and I think most many of the of our listeners because we're so interesting technology. It's like we can see that. God. There's there should it's the data were looking at implies that there's another planet in the solar system because of the ways that other planets are moving around this thing that doesn't exist and for me one of these things is this bridge device between a phone and even tablets something. That's just a little more than a phone that will make more people who carrying around tablets or in notebooks who don't need to carry these things around. They just wish their phone were a little more something there that device has to be out there. And I think that this is at least more data or more experiments that we can do to try to find that device. I feel like this is a really good opportunity for us to segue. Yes. Let's see speaking of again things that if any if Google or apple said, hey, we've got instead of having a fingerprint reader that you touch that's actual circle in the device. We've got an indisp- lay all tra-, sonic, fingerprint reader. I would say, wow, that's going to be exciting because because it's an apple or Google product. I'm sure it works. One hundred percent. Samsung, of course, has their in display ultra-sonic fingerprint reader, that's on at least half of the new devices that they introduced today. So let's hope it works. I'm talking about. I've talking about like an all kinds of situations. The basic thing is that because it's actually part of the screen, which means that you don't know. It's there until you need to do some sort of a sign it and suddenly the screen draws like a circle and fingerprints. Here is the part where our sensor is touch right here. So it uses ultrasound instead of projected light in order to make that map of your fingerprint. So now they made two claims when they're introducing this during the keynote one is that they're claiming that because Alterra sound it stems better to like damp fingers. So if you're sweating or your fingers dry or cold, or whatever, which a kind of make sense and be would be a really really great thing because in the summertime. The summer and the winter if I'm taking my hand out of a glove at might be a little like. Condensation E ON the inside of the gloves have to clean my finger to make it work right after you wash your hands, and you try to your phone. Yeah. I've been running into that. Yeah. Though, the other the other claim they made is that also work better in bright light than than the light base fingerprint reader. I'm saying so you mean light that's getting between the loops and worlds of your finger and the glass that is physically in touch against are you saying that like in the beach. I didn't get that at all. I actually have the whiskey Tango foxtrot, acronym that note, but it, but I will say that as a design thing it really does make the display look really really interesting now on the on the cheapest one on the ten and on the fold. They have they have a fingerprint reader that's actually on the side. It's embedded in the power button. Which is what we've seen like on the pixel slate. So you still, but the that plus they're calling the Infinity display which means instead of having instead of having a chin or or a or a or Archer whatever the calling the I've heard five different words for the brow. And I don't I don't like any of them. But so now the actually will have a whole sort of punched in the lead the foot. I really liked that. I thought it looked really really good. It's it's the first attempt to make a truly edged edge left. Right. Top to bottom display that really looks like it's truly an edge to edge top to bottom display. I don't think that the chin or the notch is ugly. But it's definitely there. And I don't know that the in my own personal tastes. I don't think that that's necessarily a big improvement over just having the screen end over at that top there. But this is truly we have we've just basically painted a square of pixels on your table here. There's a little circle over there. Don't mind the circle. But I thought that made a really really good impact. But you've actually seen one. So what what do you think it looks good? It looks good at the all the phones really good. It's really pretty. But did you notice that Samsung did steal Apple's trick where the default wallpaper? That's on all of these phones. It's like, oh, look there's swirls of color and plasma and whatever and the corner of the screen where the whole is happens to be the only section. The transit is completely blacks. You can't see knowing it was kind of annoying because I when I was going through my footage, and my pictures this afternoon, I realized that I couldn't tell which was which because it's different on the. So it's like a little hole punch on the s ten e. And then it's a bigger area on the regular S ten. Yeah. So it's a it's a great looking phones. I got two hands to that. Another thing. That's I think legitimately cool is reverse charging. So they've had wireless sharp while super cool. Yeah. The actually have they actually have a chief compatible charging pad on the back of the phone. So if you've got like wireless wireless, excuse me. Like an apple watch that uses Chee or if you've got wireless. Head buds ear buds. You can just drop it on the back of this phone and watch. Yup. Apple watch cheat charging too, but you can't use that for watch with an Android phone. Well, you can charge it from an Android phone. You're you're talking to one of the few Mouton's mutants. Apple watch and I kind of hard shit. Well, the point is they even in the demo. They're saying, it's not just Samsung products. We've got a an unnamed third party phone that sort of like kissing Lang on top of the of our of our device and look they're transmitting to each other. I don't I'm not sure how weird these we're going to again, this is this is material after Dr boom, boom. So so we're certainly not talking about get a full charge on your iphone ten or on your pixel phone from this thing, but we'll certainly talking again, if you've got like a fitness band or a small device getting a Samsung buds because. Put him on top or for if for phone at least getting enough charge in there that you can make that emergency call or enough for you've got a half hour to sue can actually call you can actually fire uplift and get a get a car or use your Google pay to actually pay for your parking because you didn't take any money with you. Because you thought hey, I've got my phone. That's all I need. I thought that was I thought that was really that's a really positive cool thing. Let's say let's not in a whole lot of the things to talk about five g got the galaxy five G model Phil because. Right now, it's five G is really going to be a thing until at least a year. You can also by the by the way, the galaxy fold either in LT or five G. I imagine that God if you're in for if you think that the phone is going to last more than a year, you may as well, pay whatever extra it's going to cost to get five G. Because again, if I don't think five G is going to be a thing for the life of whatever brand new phone you buy this year. So don't worry about it. But okay. So it's their say have three of the five G model is the only model with a three D wreak rear camera. So the the the the the the expensive galaxy tens all have three cameras as their main cameras regular telephoto and ultra wide twelve mega pixels and sixteen mega pixels on the ultra wide lens with a five G. You also get an additional rear camera that will let you do augmented reality like three d. Depth sensing. So he can do like not fake Buca. But real Boca. Okay. If that's that's nice once again, we'll see how well that works compared to all of the computational photography that Apple's doing and Google is doing the only the only other feature that I thought was really interesting is that so many of these phones they've got like Hugh amounts of application ram. Which is I don't know if it's just a numbers game. So the the the if if you're going for again, the super phone in the lineup the traditional galaxy S ten you can get up to a terabyte of storage. Plus, whatever you add very micro and up to twelve gigabytes of application ram version. Yeah. Yup. And I I'm just curious to know if this is. Aside from how much it contributes to the cost of the phone. It's not as though is going to be a handicap to have way more application ram than you need like on like on the iphone. They don't really have to talk about how much ram the phone. It has the phone has for memory because it does such a good job of application memory management. But maybe Android is a different story. I've just I've never run into problems on pixel version one. So it seemed it seems to me as though if you have a decent amount of ram for gigs. You're good anything above that so long as you don't have a crazy folding phone with the huge screen that can run three applications at the same time. You're okay with four six wants you to run decks on this thing wants you to use apps that Samson wants you to shoot four K video. You've got CLYDE HD buzzword buzzword buzzword. It is. Like these phones are just. It really is it just feels like a male Strohm of of buzzwords when we talk about phones outside of because it's it's very interesting the way Google sort of markets. It's things in the way. Samsung does it seems does it was a lot of punching us like it's it's very punchy. It's very like. Ooh. Yeah. Lights flashing features. Whoa. Yeah. This for free too. It's like, oh, wow. That's really fast for me. And sometimes as a consumer I'm very like hold on their foresee. I'm not quite ready for all of that kind of like the subdued nature of the pixel marketing where it's like this speak your life better. You know, what I mean, Luke Cutie photos because. But this is like not a this is not hard for me. I'm not. I'm not the demographic for this particular device thorough. Lot of people are really into Samsung Samsung phones, and this is going to make them this this whole lineup today is going to make them really excited. I mean, there's even like the smaller galaxy S E, which is a smaller screen. It has a doesn't have tra- wide. Yeah. It doesn't have yet. Which is like still pretty pretty decent. It doesn't have one of the cameras. The other S tens have has just a couple minor differences. But I held it in my gosh that felt so great. It's very interesting. It's interesting. I do want to just point out. One thing is that for all the things that Android or excuse me for all the things that Sam did talk about the thing that is very much mentioned was Android and just like there were settlement. There are mentions of Google. Google was included in the demos, blah, blah, blah. But there was never like a. You know, we're like there's this one line where they were talking about the hardware hardware is so in so percentage faster, the graphics card is so and so presented faster. But like what about the software updates? You know, like what about your commitment to Android? What about how it's going to integrate with what Google's doing a partner like what about all of these things is an Android user? And at what point do we stop? I don't know. Like at one point. It's it's a very interesting. It's diverging. It's very interesting. You know, it's like. The Google row. And then you have all the manufacturers. And it's it's very, obviously, we're going to remain in that fragmentation forever. As long as this Simpson. Heavily skins their skins, aversion Android is going to be the phones are going to strip with Android nine injured pie. But you have to mention that. It's got the Samsung experience overlaid on top of it. So which is a lot better now. But it's worth mentioning that a lot of people still are on pie. And they just bought a note recently. There was a time when it was really really necessary for a manufacturer to improve Android by adding some additional coherence user interface. And adding basic features that Google had yet to get around to. And now, it seems as though. You have to really justify getting. Over writing some of what I think are really great decisions that Google's been making for the past two or three years and a lot of it is brand loyalty for people to think that no no not running to their perception is not that I'm running an Android phone, but I'm running a Samsung phone. It says somewhere on the box that runs Android, but Scott the Google play store. But okay. So that's it's, but that's almost okay. Because they also they've also carved out a unique and really cool piece of turf, which is of we make probably the industry's best super phone, and I don't think even apple can claim that when you have the galaxy S ten plus that everything these are the are the reasons why I think a lot of people have gone from buying a lap instead of buying a laptop last year. Maybe they bought a Chromebook last year because for them, they do so they're not only do they lead a phone Centric computing lifestyle. But also the phone that they buy the phones are willing to spend thirteen hundred dollars four to get the top of the line version. The the highly specked out version of the top of the line flagship is the temps on galaxy S eight nine ten, and it is such a capable device that every year another task or two or three gets moved over. To the phone, and these are the people who want the gigabytes of storage gives me of application ram and who want the one terabyte of storage. And these are the people who are might be trying to figure out if they can wait for the galaxy S ten note with the spem even larger display, it's it's an interesting position to be in. We got a woman last thing before we go to our second ad and then start talking about a couple of things that are have nothing to do with with the with Samsung's announcement. We are moving on. Sorry. We are. We are moving on we were entered at each other with conversations about what we thought about lots of things, we we hope that that that intersects with your desires for such a podcast, but we appreciate that those of you who didn't know lumped listening. So there's no need. I apologize to anybody. So I just want to say. There is another feature that is common to I think all of these devices. Now, let's just I don't want to know. I correct myself. I was being nice. I do wanna throw shade on every device manufacturer who deleted headphone, Jack and gave us some BS excuse for why they had to do this. And why H one of these galaxy devices has a headphone Jack. It also has sixty eight water resistance and dust resistance. So they're meant they still have managed to crack that problem of having a headphone Jack without compromising the integrity of the phone. And well, what do you know? They're also able to make the screen take up the entire Bill without running out of room to include a headphone, Jack. And they're also able to add Tirlian new features such as in device. Charging of other of other wireless charging device. And third fourth camera all while still having plenty of room for a headphone Jack without making the thing any thicker than any other phone on the market. So if you are in engineer working at apple or Google or any of these other companies that have deleted the headphone, Jack insisted that your hands were tied. And no one is using headphone jacks before if this is making you feel defensive or even a little bit bad about your product. That was really my intention. Give me my headphone check.

Make you next website. Okay. Was there anything we didn't discuss that? You wanna talk about the person on the scene. I'm so tired so tired of it, Andy. I'm so tired. No, more more stuff will come up. I'm still I'm still processing so. Well, we still interesting things that are taking place this week. I was both. So there is a piece of news for Google posted something to the YouTube blog about saying quote, making our strike system. More clear and consistent thought. Yes. Finally, the the the the copyright strike system on YouTube has been an absolute crap storm for months and years. And finally, they're listening to these problems because the amongst the many many problems are that oftentimes the reasons why a video or channel gets a copyright strike is not very very clear, but the bigger difficulty is that you have large video producers commercial video producers who have just bought s- that look for an algorithm, thanks to be a copyright match. And so they will just procedurally automatically via software initiate a strike against your video. When the only thing that was infringing. Quote, unquote, is that both you and the people who filed the strike against you, both use the same public domain clip of video available on our dot org. But because part of your video was the same as this other video there, L them said, ou copyright strike and even worse than that is that there are a whole bunch of bad people who are really who are actually holding entire channels hostage by saying, so it's a three strikes and you're out system where if you get one copyright strike. You'll get maybe don't understand how the Cup copyright what you can. And can't watch. You get forced to watch you. Basically, you have to go to like, you know, the driver. What's the class? You have to go to. Whatever it is where we'll take points off, your license or if you sit through six hours worth of naughty driver training while you shouldn't be speeding. We'll take it up. It's basically strike too. And they warn you. Okay. Look it's a third strike. We might have to take down your entire channel. You'll lose all of your. So a lot of these people are saying we're filing one strike to strike, then contacting the the channel owner saying, and if you less you give us you you bitcoin is five bitcoin to this address. We will file a third strike and YouTube will take down your entire channel. And because it's almost the entire system at YouTube is designed so that well, there'd be it was designed to the hippy dippy days of the early two thousands the or the late nineteen ninety s where nobody would have any any any motivation whatsoever to file a copyright strike that wasn't justified. So the whole system is geared towards assuming that copyright strike is justified and making it. Really really difficult or or Otake to fight it and sometimes impossible to fight it. So great. So they're finally listen to all these complaints. I've been reading about and following for for a long long time. But they screwed it up almost the entire blog post is about. And so that's why we're we're creating new videos new block content to explain to you ignorant idiots. Why you're violating copyright and why we have to punish you. Don't worry. We know that you're just a bunch of dopes who don't know what you're doing. And don't know that what you're doing is evil in horrible. But you know, what? Because we're nice we want to educate you. No, that's not the point. That really is not what we're talking about. The only thing that even kind of attempts to address the real problem is the last bullet point. Whereas finally, we want we always want to make it clear why a strike occurred. What it means for your channel the next steps that are available including appealing the decision class. You make you think it was a mistake, blah, blah, blah. If that means that they're going to put more human beings on on the case. So that if a channel owner emails their context at YouTube and saying, hey, look, there's a copyright strike that is not justified. Are they going to get a response in a timely fashion? Or is this just is the deletion channel just a boulder that once it's been pushed off the top of the clip cliff is just not going to stop until smashes us away all the way through to the bottom of the hill. So I hope they do more to address the problem to defend channel owners from abusive, copyright strikes. I don't think they're doing it yet. I'm more. I'm more concerned about other things on this is not like Lou I'm gonna I'm gonna upset a creator. And I I do apologize. I think this is just because I'm coming from a different scope because I'm not using YouTube as a platform for anything on. But I would like to see other things on YouTube address. But I do think it's good that. I think it's good that YouTube continues to create ways to just make its platform, more cohesive and make people feel safer on there as creators. But I also kind of feel like there's a lot of animals on this farm, and this farm hasn't had fences ever and fencing all those animals is going to be really hard. I'm gonna leave it with that metaphor. The cows and chickens and turkeys. No one wants to be the police force. But sometimes. When we went to school. We always had those classes, hopefully, not very many of them over the course of our twelve year public school career where the teacher through inaction made it really really clear that whatever you kids are going to each other is your problem and not mine. So if if if so long as you're as long as I'm only hearing, one of you kids punching the other, and I don't see it. I only see kid on the on the floor with a bloody face. That's not my problem. I don't know why you're not in your cherry should get back in your Charles. I'm sending you to the principal's office. And then they're the ones who realized that. No, I'm I am more than nominally in control of this room. If people are misbehaving, and there's not a rule right now to prevent them from his behaving that I need to create that rule and enforce that rule because again as someone who has been to public public school junior high public high school public middle school. Elementary school. But it's usually the animals come out, and and the animals and the bad teachers come out in junior high and high school. It's like if you don't if you've let jerks beach and jerks learned that they can get away with this because you don't care about their jerk behavior. They are going to just become bigger and more malicious, jerks and YouTube. You have a jerk problem you need to address it. The last thing to talk about is something I thought was pretty cool. New feature is coming to chrome OS that Google engineers have spoken about as being on the list for the future. But looks like we're finally going to be actually getting of virtual quote virtual desks and Chroma score or workspaces. This is that feature you probably use on your other operating systems where you have all your wind application, doc, you have basic you can have multiple desktops and switch between them. So that your exactly so I've got when I'm working on a call. I'm like all my documents. And all of my research all my browser tabs are in one space. But then when I want to go to mail, I can go to another totally clean desktop. It just has my mail client couple other things. So that looks like it's coming to chrome OS this thanks to I got this through nine to five Google. But I'm sure that the people spotted at first there's a new. To commit to the chromium project. The open source code as called quote virtual desks. One colon initial scaffolding. So yes, we are talking about a trilogy that creates a new shared universe of desks a desk world as it were. But it doesn't it doesn't do anything really right now. But it does show the basic interface for adding new workspaces, and how basically a very familiar looking fat bar of them nails of existing desk workspaces for navigating between them or dragging drop windows between them, and I thought this was wonderful because it makes chrome even more of a productivity thing. It's also a natural thing to have in place. If you're going to have windows ten support, for instance, put windows ten and its own workspace separate from anything else, but still you can interact with it the negative thing. I was thinking is that. The whole point of chrome OS is that it's simple, and it's stable past that list. No. But if you stay will you want simple Ugo by two hundred dollar Chromebook when you want something a little bit more than you should get something a little bit more. You know what I mean? And and to fair, these are all all these features film. No, all these extra features that we have beyond the the computer operating system. That's just a browser window like support for Android apps support for Lennox support for local file storage. None of these have made the thing worse. I want to say, and it's not as though it's it's not like a features in MAC, OS or windows or Lennox where they're there and you have to deal with them whether use these features or not it's if you don't want to use Android, apps, just don't install them. And if you don't want use Lennox than just don't go into settings and turn on support for Lennox download Lennox desktops, and Lennox stuff like that. I'm just worried that there's going to be a time where the five hundred the really cool mid range five hundred dollar chrome OS laptop that used to be as absolutely easy to use and rock stable as an ipad is now. As stable as an Android phone, which is pretty stable. But definitely keep one foot on the floor. So you have to make a quick getaway. Just in case. I don't know. I just think that whatever they are doing to chrome is just making it. This is you know for Google. And they're just they're just making the purchase of a pixel book. They're justifying it for so many people right now with and they're trying to justify people coming to the pixel slate and spending all that money. And I just think it's I think it's a beautiful thing. And I am a huge nerd as we all know that I that. I really am a huge nerd, and there is nothing. I love more than the birth and rise of a desktop operating system. It is so beautiful to just watch this thing not only that. But I am just so sick of the like binary software world, come on can't just be MAC and PC forever here, folks. And I know I know the Lennox folks, they're going to say, hey, it's Lennox too. But I'm talking I'm talking fool on mainstream. Here. I'm talking like you best buy and you're going to buy this right now. And when you go to best buy you've got one MAC because that's all they're allowed to put their. A whole row of PC's. And then at least three Chromebooks. So that's the that's the world we limited. I loved it took good point. I just I just have to mention that that we want to get all this stuff while still not winding up with something like windows worse like windows, or you're talking about thirty years of legacy code sort of building up into each other. I mean, this is all this is sort of for the first time thinking that maybe chrome OS if we were to make an analogy to NASA, maybe chrome OS is like project Gemini for you had project on a way to project Apollo and landing on the moon, you had project Apollo which is about actually going to the moon you had project mercury which is let's figure out how to get men into low orbit or orbit without killing them. But project Gemini was okay. So now, let's figure out how to build a spacecraft that can stay in space for two weeks time and can run do and. Doc and to figure out how to do spacewalks. So we have like Android, which is which is and for a long time. We'll be great phone operating system. But was not a complete success. We can agree as a tablet or as a notebook upbring system. So that was project mercury in terms of like desktop sort of stuff and we've got project few show coming up in the near future which is Google zone. We are throwing away. We're not even giving. Not even giving we're not even using Lennox. We are starting from the absolute ground up, creating an absolute not just twenty-first-century operating system but mid twenty first century operating system. So maybe Chromos is like these Gemini capsules that are little bit ungainly and their little bit weird. And I suppose there actually were plans to adapt. A Gemini capsule to do like a lunar mission. If Apollo was a whole failure. But you know, it only kind of almost what a worked and it had inject had ejection seats instead of an escape tower. Because they thought that here's something we could play with. But definitely would have killed both astronauts, if they were ever used all the where it's it's gonna get a little bit more ungainly before it teaches us what what teaches Google what they need to build for for project. Fuchsia? It's so it can be a little bit of a platypus while still being an important and useful thing. Everybody to be down on the platypus. Awesome. What is not awesome about a platypus? Kevin Smith had a huge rant about was probably hard. When that happened fair fair enough. I am just again the nerd in me is just incredibly excited for all of these things. This is what I love. This is the this is stuff that I love it brings me back to good old times before smartphones. Before this world was as tech world was as complicated as it is. Now, you know, how complicated it is not only that I have to install the Samsung gear Samsung wear app, I also had to install the wear a plug in for the buds specifically sorry, again, just remind you Google, I happen to have an example. This is called this is called a headphone plug and you into. Stay in there and music goes into from the phone to your ears, and you don't have to install any set any software, and you don't have to agree to have data Philex sold. Well, maybe maybe I actually want to hear the soundtrack to west side story without being notified of who's posting something on Instagram. Mom has sent you. A message. Medika? No joke ahead. So the only thing I don't like about my Google pixel USB see buds is that. I have to remember to turn off the feature where helpfully explains to you. Like being okay. So there's a notification nor that and then ten seconds later when I press the button to did you know that by pressing and holding top I can read. No, I was really thinking that I was listening to this really dramatic part of this podcast where someone was finally coming to felt his so they've made a breakthrough on their mental illness and how it has been affecting their lives and their work. But the thank you for remove for totally dispelling this veil of motion connection happening. Everything. Goodness. Oh boy. It's it's been it's been a weekend. We're recording this on the night of Wednesday. It's technically morning for Andy. And it's been a week, folks. Thanks for being here. With us clues to another fifteen minutes.

Cows it didn't know sweet low. What is a static? Jacket? That's crazy. Just lighten up. Yeah I'm so staticky crazy when I when we were in Ohio. 'cause it's like cold and dry and stuff. When I went to move my blankets. I kept getting electrocuted. Really Yeah in my bed. I was like what the Hell's going on here snapping and popping. I'm like I'm going to light on fire from this thing and how we almost did. Burn that place down. Yeah Fire Long. Hey he took all the hot water trying to wake everybody up. I had to take a cold shower that morning. So mad at you. And smokey the first night one of yesterday along shower yes and then. I went in. I was like fuck. It's cold the worst part is I just assumed everybody already went because I think I felt like I woke up a little bit late. I was like I really priority went and I just I turn the shower on to get it like hot and then I had to poop and use and I was like I'll say show turn it back off and I'll just leave it onto my. How long does poop GonNa really take longer than expected? And then as far as static goes like. Whenever I would move around in the bed I would just see sparks flying. I'm like what the like. This is amazing but also what the what's happening here. Yeah Yellow Weird. That didn't I didn't get sean got a sense. I'm in bed. That's when you gotTa send your girl video sparks. I still got still got in knows. Yeah so we. We had some amazing steak at some amazing steakhouses. It wasn't bad it was really good. It was where the Encima kept the returning his stop. He kept sending it back. It's like this is not says y'all sometimes you've gotta teach people lessons if they don't make it re rare enough he's like stuff so much better in Nigeria. Get wrong with you. People very insulting. Do they got Piedmontese? Beef? Nigeria yet. No no no. We just got jacked people. That's that's up. In Ninety Day. Fiance Alan Ninety Day.

Yeah take a joke. I was GONNA say yeah empty stomach just go for it. Aids good stuff. Though African love it makes me happy. Yeah mine bullet DOT COM. There you go. I cooked up some of that Piedmont yesterday Asked me what what cut it was GONNA say? It was the center cut Rubai. Hey that's pretty good. It was just a regular boneless rabbi and it was amazing. That's so good I made. I made the center cut Rubai last night this morning woke up and I was just thinking about that rib eye and I was like all right. I'm GONNA do rib eye so I pulled it out of the freezer. I put it on the calendar. It's defrosting money. Get home later today. That's me reaching for Nice. Dude I put the The New York. Strip in the air fry yesterday. I just had it sitting there for ten minutes and I'll just like fuck I'm GonNa go deal with. Some of the subsurface sat there after was cooking at three sixty percent came back. It was like literally perfect. Modern cooks so quick. Yeah they cook fast. I ended up just putting it at three ten. I think for at three fifteen minutes air fryer. And you're the you're on the grill so lately I've been doing Air Fryer And so like I used to talk. I mean I still will say that you know the smokers way. Better than air fire. But that's because when I was cooking on the air fryer always using like like big box store meats and it is likely Like this like I needed so much more work with Piemontese stakes like Ah. It's so damn good lay. It doesn't make any damn sense. You guys messing with that season salt. What do you throw in on your stakes just regular salt this pinker Land Himalayan salt? Yeah lots of it though at through some of that Redmond seasoned salt on their yesterday. It was really good. Get some of that. I don't like people that put a lot of Mike. Lowery's all over there.

Feels good to be home. Y'All it does. It feels great. I wanted to say about beef especially from cows because this is that Or or like Bison and lamb. There's other there's other ruminant animals but people ask on a carnivore diet. Can I eat chicken and can I eat? This can eat that you could eat. Whatever you'd like you know. His mom was the fall of the meat. Category comes from an animal. You're pretty much good to go but just something about room animals. It ends up working out perfectly because they have multiple chambers especially a cow. I I don't know all the information about it but they have like four chambers and because they have those chambers they turn grass into very highly bioavailable vitamins and minerals for us and a lot of other foods We don't have access to that. You know if you eat kale or spinach They may have some great benefit. But the research shows that you might only get like one percent the vitamins from there because you can extract it all because our body just doesn't digest that well maybe there's other things going on. We don't know about that are beneficial for vegetables. I don't really know I'm not gonNA stay vegetables or bad. I don't have a problem with vegetables. But me definitely has a lot more stuff readily available to you and it's just something that everybody should know especially from room an animal. So can you have other me on a carnivore diet? You're sure Ken but it's just not going to have the vitamins and minerals because cows designed to provide us with that in my opinion I like it and then after hanging out with Stan it was like oh I got Start eating more steak again. Oh yeah the Rhino That guy's still jacked. Sizzled jacked still brilliant. Yeah yeah no that? Yeah just more steak no. I'm just happy that you're going to be eating more stay. Oh Gotcha yeah yeah I mean you know I I was I was. I had a lot of success with chicken rice as you know. It's a bodybuilding staple. Right at this point. It's kind of like when you think of bodybuilding diet you think chicken and rice all day long and then maybe Broccoli Allied into that It was successful with someone. I'm going to keep this party earl in and then I don't know man that's it's time for a little change here and then also again talking to Stan is like all right man. There's so much more benefits to eating real steak and real meats real cow meats like Martin's talking about I can't ignore it anymore canton. I think I think my dog would eat almost anything in super curious about any kind of food. But I really don't think she would care that much if I had like a plate of Broccoli and if she took a snip of Broccoli I don't think she would continue to care that much. She goes crazy absolutely crazy when I have meat. She goes crazy even when we give her own food which is still like meat base. We try to get like the healthiest choice. I haven't been able to convert my wife over to just being like. Hey let's trigon give her just flat out But even with her own food. She's not as excited. But if I have a plate of meat or eggs or something like that. She's like doing backflips and I think he just knows. He's like she just inherently knows that there's at it's a nutrient dense food. It's like I want some of that. I've never I've never seen a dog that fucks with Greens unless like the owners trying to really make them eaten a green diet. Yeah yeah every every now and again will like. We have like the the baby. Carrots Arbox love lows but I mean through compared to a chunk of meat. Third GONNA go nuts and they might eat some berries or something like that. And I think I've heard that dogs will sometimes like eat grass just out of necessity not getting the vitamins and minerals. They need from other stuff so those little things are so smart that they're just like hey like my owners not give me what I need to eat. This grasp digest grass very wells. The problem. Yeah but it will still have some of the nutrients that they need. Yeah when my dogs like their stomach like you can actually hear their stomachs like Babylon up. A little bit aligned. Trying to get on the PODCAST. Yeah so what? They'll they'll actually go back and start to on some grass and we're like no no because you're just gonNa Puke it all up but you're right. They they do know what the heck they need. The dog whispers naming the guys unless show Cesar. Milan was Cesar. Milan Milan Mulan Ud. That Super Fast You. Will you wash that show no he? Just we were talking about it. We got to get that guy. Have you guys ever tried elk meat by the way I haven't I'm designed too? Yeah how does it? It's really good Have you ever had Like venison which is like deer ever had deer before never dear. I think it's a lot better than like deer meat like it's it has. It has a little bit more fat but You know as Joe Rogan kind of explains like elk or just beautiful animals. They fucking jacked. You know. They're they're they're in really good shape and I enjoy it. I like it quite a bit. I think when it comes to any of these meets any of these kind of game meats it really helps a lot to have some knowledge of how to cook some of these things and sometimes smoking the me or cooking them. Prepping them in a slightly different way. Might be good for some people so but tree you can hit up in the air. Fryer even via. What's up my man. Can you hear us over there yet? I can hear you. Can you hear me yeah man. You're you're ready to go to like fucking outerspace dot com chair that man that's like the Like the first chair you buy when you like fifty thousand subscribers. Yeah yeah that's like the Pudi Pie Chair type thing right. It is man we all got it. That's that's like a video especially video game chair even right. Yeah and I don't even play video games really honest computer anymore but I think it looks cool. Yeah Right. Y'All are comment on it. We're starting to show off right. Yeah you need the background for people to people to comment on You got to have a nice Silhouette in the background. Not Bad guys. Got Some traps curtain. That's right you never know what's GonNa come out from behind that curtain. Never know. I can't wait to find out so you said you don't really play video games much nowadays but you had a video game addiction going on for a while right correction correction. I still play shit on video games. I just don't do it sitting right here off. Yeah man. Before I got into fitness I was real bad. And so you ever heard award warcraft. Absolutely yeah okay. Well wasn't that game. It was a game like that. But a star wars version of it so Yeah I chew outside wasted so much time playing Tam game. What was the name of the show but now wolf so now my problem is like I said this maddening videos. I do all known editing. Do all that stuff so I I do my client stuff right here. So it's like trying to relax. I gotta get the hell away from right here. Whatever have you learned from Being previously addicted to video games and unlike what about the addiction of doing what you do now youtube social media are you Hana a little worried or concerned about any of those addictions or are you doing. Okay with those. Or How's it working for him? I mean I think that addictions I'm a very addictive person in general I've been addicted I'm feeling what type of guy like when I'm doing something I'm to it right like why got into. I think it was really like meeting at Finis was just a matter of me like replacing one addiction for another but finding things to be addicted that were beneficial to me. I mean do when I was playing that EMINEM. Oh Man I would. I was working with sound cell phones at the time so it was like wake up go to work and I call them at work on like online researching how to level at my character. Picking ON PEOPLE IN MY GUILD. Iran like clan man super nerdy shit armor piece. I needed to go farm. Yeah me and then I would rush home order a pizza on the way home to sub and in a relationship with like my high school sweetheart at the time. Oh man I just totally neglected her. She left me and dude. It was not good like two years of my life and I remember like I came out of this relationship and I was like the worship ever been in Things weren't good inaugural artem single. I need to try to get laid. Somehow I have no game all been talking to. Is these dorks for the last two years you know so yes swapped addiction. You know I still play video games. But it's just not to that create like you know. Now I have a job and I found a way to like make the nerdy side of me. Kinda also made me money in the same sense you know I want to ask you this real quick because I when I was a teenager I also played like quite a few memo's curious with Mo you're talking about was but I played this game called Maple Story and we've talked to back. You know what it is. That's why you're laughing. I know what it is I was. Hey man it wasn't. It was record all but it was addictive as hell and before I went into college I was like fuck. I put hundreds of thousands of hours since that. Gabe Holy Shit. See if you want to move forward in life you can't play the city more you've got delete it and I was sitting there literally probably a few tears in my eyes when I deleted my character. So what I to know. Do I deleted the character? I didn't even I couldn't I couldn't do it anymore. That's deleted so what Because I know a lot of people are listening to like fuck. I'm kind of in that same boat where I don't have control over. It probably got to believe my character. So what kind of like. How did you bring herself to have the courage to just stop that? Because you still play games now but probably not healthy. Oh Yes yes I mean here's the bad part is like with most addictions you reach this point where it's like the point of no return. You're like Jesus Christ I don't stop this. It's just get real. Ramada cuss on your yes. Okay all right. She's going to get real. Messed up if I keep going this way. 'cause I lost my girlfriend and I'm realizing the amount of money I was spending I okay. I was so addicted that was making I was doing pretty good. My like you know Steph cellphone sales job right and I would pay people to level my characters up while I was at work right so I would have all these extra characters love without buying special pieces of gear and I was farming gold and reselling it like it was. It was a whole process. You know so I mean Chad. Hit Rock bottom. I'd realize that I was extremely out of by girlfriend. You know and I don't think there was a bigger motivator for a male than not being able to have sex when you want it. You know what I mean. I think You know now. You're like upwards of over four hundred fifty thousand subscribers on youtube channel like how did this Flog stuff come to be in. What would it look like in the beginning? Was there like video game stuff on there in the beginning. Now Man It so long story short I get out of my relationship right and I get out of this whole thing and I think it was. What twenty two twenty three at the time? But I never really experienced like I mean a little bit college like the going out the the Bar Scene. The partying seen so. I got pretty heavy into that. I realized Adam going out all these dudes that are out or wearing affliction shirts and they'll have by means I'm like Damn. How do I join that prestigious club so I started Started working out and you know No idea on Diet. I zero clue like what I'm supposed to be doing. I just knew you needed you know. I thought you needed the protein shake. You EAT OATS. And you're GONNA get huge like that's what. I thought and I'm really researching like the Diet side of it. I'm putting myself together like a little meal plan and actually all would like verbatim like you know mill. One is like weighing everything at once. I did that was when I was like. Oh I in my life I had ads. Remember like sending a picture to my mom and my dad look guys and they didn't give a shit but I was so proud of those apps and the fact that I made that plan so I was like well like you know this. Ain't that hard really. Like I did know shit about die but I just like researched it bigger to plan out so you know post some results on facebook and get local people. Hit me up like hey what are you doing? He made me die. I started making dies for people when Doing that whole thing and I was like you know what my family certified as a personal trainer. Why the Hell Not? You're not can maybe make some money transfer people. Maybe didn't really know where I wanted to go with it. I want to get certified and I remember I was like all right. So in order to legitimize. What personal training. I'm GonNa make some youtube videos. Just so they're they're like makes me look more legit. I have an instagram or out of Youtube. Yada Yada so I've made like a hired a camera guy. We made like ten videos like a couple of weeks. I kept refreshing like there. Was this APP on my phone. Each about tell you how much money you made. There was always stuck at a penny always. Remember just given up on it. You know what I mean. I ain't gonNA ever go up in a one day. I checked it and I made like fifty bucks and I was like how did that happen? I look and I had made a meal. Prep video. It was like super terrible. You go back and wash. It is a joke but it made me fifty bucks and I was like Holy Shit so I just kinda started making that same kind of video like looking at like different hashtags and different diets and his kind of started young man and then people just started common. And that's when I was like all right. I need to quit this job. I'm doing and start to focus on his youtube thing and I went on a run man. I did a hundred and eighty one hundred eighty days in a row. I did video every single day. And didn't miss a day or shot edited and everything by me. so Grinding it out and it Kinda worked and here we are man. That's a lot. That's a lot of days in Rome. Do you still do that frequently. Is it three four days? I don't know well you know in the beginning you have like. I didn't know what I was doing it like really kid. I'm like I'm just GONNA try to. I need a video everyday. That's my I quit my job and I'm like when I have all this free time. I need to spend the somehow. I didn't know the best way to approach it so I'm going to do every single day and I remember going on vacation to Fort Lauderdale Walla while I was in the middle of the street. My buddies are waking up walking on the beach. Getting coffee drinking and I'm like not leaving the hotel till three PM. Some doing like emails and clients and doing videos and things when some when someone asks you like what you do do you tell them that. You're a Youtuber I. Yeah but it's almost like it's goofy to say that Sally younger generation looks at you like a superstar and the older generation is just like what the hell like the kind of job like? They don't know what you'd do until you pull up in a nice car and they're like Oh shit okay for almost work. You know what I mean. So Youtuber yeah I guess it depends. I kind of get a temperature check who? I'm talking to a personal trainer. Sounds Cooler to an older demographic youtube younger kids though you tell them you're youtube or they never seen a video picture. Do you share a lot of stuff about maybe your past you know You were addicted to alcohol. You were drinking quite a bit and stuff like that. I believe and so share. You share a lot of that stuff with people as well I mean Or are we talking? I mean in person if I'm talking to somebody you know it's not the first thing I I bring up but you know if we're If I can give my whole thing is like I think you should always speak from experience and shit. You've gone through like I've been. Yeah BEEN ADDICTED TO ALCOHOL. Really bad problem purkis for a while. I ll still love to party I just feel a little better self control over it Talk but I very addictive I very of personality so I want to do is something I do it to like the hundred and tenth percent. Can we talk about that self control that you have now because like I have a lot of friends? I know a lot of people that like when it does come to alcohol. They they they don't necessarily want to totally get it out of their life but they can't see central it in their life so I'm really curious how you got to the point of having an addiction to alcohol to now you probably drink a bit. You don't like you don't. It's not excessive as it used to be and I feel like that point is really difficult for a lot of people. Yeah I mean I think a lot of it too is When you when I first started like all youtube I I do. These little mini challenges with myself so like When I first started youtube I realized like I was like all right so now I don't have a job. I have some money in the bank. I can pay my bills but I need to grow this so I did a challenge and I think I went. What was it like nine months without a single drink alcohol? I gave it up completely and I'll periodically do things like that and if I have like a Like this past weekend for Arnold We went out Saturday night and I had to catch a flight Sunday morning. We shut that club down. We were at an Afro observes insane. Did him go sleep? But I realized though like anytime I have like a like a really bad moment like I've had bad moon with our I lose my self control and I'm just like I blackout. Wake up I don't remember anything like shift for today's Then I forced myself to go music all right like you're going on a break. You got six months drinking. I've done that multiple times but really for me it's how easy just everything spiral out of control. Man I mean with what I do with my schedule and everything I'm a one man team so the second that you know. I might have a little fun on a Saturday knowing I have Sunday. Recovery ahead of me the like if. I try to like I used to. It'd be like Shit people call me. You'll Tuesday night l. Yeah and then then my whole dude everything I'll just cascades out of control trying to add videos and all this shit hung over then like it's just not good so My when I go out is like a one thing that helped a lot which is crazy This is my kind of goofy. But like I used to pre-game before everyone out so it's like all right. We gotta have a six pack down. Go out now. I refuse to have a drink of alcohol. Tom It at the spot you know so we get out eleven places. Shut down at two guy. Well you know limits it but if I go out with six and my system then I'm ordering a crucial amounts there 'cause I'm already fucked up. You know what I mean. And then we're like but I love to party though so it's like I don't WanNa give it up completely have so much fun. But on the flip side. It's like you know it can be extremely detrimental especially when you're jobs fitness and health They have like a. You created a drinking window up dude. I'm so bad with food. To like Dole thing is like a sheet meals and all that like I'm a big believer of one cheat meal a week like if you're GONNA if you're GONNA do it. Won't you mail a week? Don't make it a whole day. You know and I kinda Kinda cramped in there like she meals on the same day. My kinda not not that. I drink every weekend. I try to do like a now. I try to do like every other week. Max like once a month like why me and the boys will have a good night you know. I think that's that's crucial to for like building relationships with people especially now I live in Houston so a lot of these people on meeting them kind of just now getting to know so you know some alcohol really helps loosen up some people yonkers. Walk us through this epoch Bro. Fight that she got into Where you you were Somebody was calling you out and you guys were talking about who could get bigger and then you actually got into a fight over it. I WanNa know how you know about I. Actually I'm friends with the guy that you got. No I'm kidding. Jesus yeah this was. This was before Youtube. Actually I yes. Definitely except storing affliction. I remember the shootout a medium affliction shared just popping sleeves. That we were we were drinking and I had this problem. I'm I'm very very short temper. Someone has gotten better with age. Obviously but it's really short temper and we were at my house drinking one night and on this guy showed up and I can't say his name but actually read a facebook status from this morning. He's not doing too. I saw Yeah sorry but We'll just grab let's call them Bradley. Martin start some shit now so we were we were. We were just drinking and This dude he was like Kinda new new to the gym. Give them a lot of advice and everything like that. Pretty Big Dude. Like I'm like five ten right now. One eighty like six foot three. Pretty big dude doesn't really work out. You can tell like he's got some potential killers it so anybody up right that I'm talking to so I'm all I'm like. Hey you're going to be big lifted with me a couple of times in the gym scene in the Gym Kinda give him some pointers. We get drunk. Roll my back orch and back when I still smoke cigarettes. So we're kind of out there having that alcohol smoke break or whatever and He just Kinda got really drunk and he just kept saying like Ma'am or the way bigger than you here before too much longer you in the Senate. I got way better genetics than you crush with this and I remember just it's in and out like I I was. I think brown I remember like moments of it does remember my one friend's sitting there shot the dogs. He kept just like you need to stop that need to quit. You need to stop because I get my own head a lot and the stock and Shit and the next thing I knew I just blasted this off my back porch And Total Pussy too. Because like I mean he was still able to like get. I mean He. He got pretty good like He. He was able to stand back up. He was just totally. Like what was that you know. And then the girls with him got all mad at me and then okay long story short. The next day I felt really shitty about it I bought him four off of Ebay. Sag gave it to He didn't come at Jim for a week because I got them right in that sweet spot between the eye on the side of the knows he had. He had a nice little mark for a week so he didn't come to the gym for. Wadis out as far as I never went back. So maybe I just I'm this. Downward spiral is on right now. Maybe I'm here today. Hopefully he still has that C. four and he puts it to some good use right here some pre workout like. Let's just let it let it be water under the BRIDGE BYGONES. Be by the way. Mp Up was the was it the original C. Four or. Was it like the the messed up? Formula Wasn't expecting this guy to come out of nowhere here man. I think it was just because I was at the time I was saving money so I probably got whatever the cheapest thing was on Ebay got sort by price plus shipping lowest. I buy it now only. Oh Yup. I'M BIG ON THAT. Shit though man. Yeah money like that. Heck yeah was what's awesome about everything that. I'm hearing this far dude. It seems like you're almost like you tracked Matt Growth For Life. Right like not only like in the Diet but like that stuff has carried over to the other partying the drinking and all that you know what I mean. So it's like do you think that? So vendee. How can you explain the What's the word? The disciplines from like bodybuilding has carried over into like other aspects of your life because people who are on the outside looking in. They kind of don't understand that like once they get their diet in check like oh all of a sudden. I show up to work every day on time and then things kind of just cascade from there like did you notice a turn something like that. I mean I think as most you guys probably know if you're a follow diet especially like in the beginning it wasn't so much tracking backers as it was like the meal plan the meal one meal to meal three the timing which I'm a little less on that aspect of it now I kinda like macro is a little better. I am thirty. I think today's like day thirty three on the Carnivore. Diet hundred percent boy and I imagine we'll get into that but You know it always tell people if you can if you can follow a Diorama say foods. Probably the one of the most tempting things you're ever going to be around. I mean everywhere you go. You got fast food restaurant here. You Got Candy here and all this shit is so good and eating stuff on a meal plan is not good. I mean if if we're relatively speaking truth from a flavor perspective but if you can fall I mean the first time like when I got the first time I truly got shredded. Was A meal plan created by myself followed it for twelve weeks. I remember I gave up alcohol. I gave up going out now. You can get a cheap meals for like last six weeks. I was almost shredded. Ever Been I did a photo shoot. Never thought in my life. I'd ever have abs but it was that moment like after if you can if you can dial in for twelve weeks three months a quarter of a year and follow something verbatim. Give yourself zero excuses not missile workout. Not Miss a cardio session in crush it. I don't think there's much else you can't do. Have you gotten better shape since that time like like just doing that that one time have you been in better shape you know you might come and go a little bit with your physique but you probably? I would imagine have been in better shape ever since he did that. One challenge right. Yeah Yeah I mean I mean that I do I was I want to say I was like one hundred and fifty two pounds for that photo and my last shred. I was the leanest I got. I think the lowest way I got was about one. Seventy one so definitely put on some muscle. Steroids help from time to time But Yeah Definitely Anna definitely in better shape definitely just learning like Not to push my body so hard map burnt so much muscle office doing so much cardio my first meal plan ever made for myself. I'M GONNA say it was on eating at the end of it. Fifteen hundred calories a day with forty minutes of Cardio a day so it was a miserable son of a bitch walking around learn quite a bit since then but those were the glory days man. What made you WANNA try steroids? What was the interest their Ha All my friends do on them. You Go to the gym and you find out that like so you start start lifting right. I'm meet these three hundred high school with big dudes I'm lifting with them and then like you know the first month everybody's like you know. Oh yeah drinker protein in about that first month Yeah well you know I mean. There's something here extra triathlon. Yeah then they start talking into it and they're like we got a eventually find out that everybody is on steroids. Everybody is on steroids. And then you go to the gym and you guys that. Don't even you would never have guessed ron or on an everybody's taken it so You know and then my best friend being Which he'd be a great gaps on this podcast by the way anchor fitness But he He's you know super knowledgeable about all this. That's what it's all channels based on so I'm like. Hey Bud what do you think I should do? And then he just Kinda sets me on the right path. Yeah one of my best friends in high school. He he started taking him really really early on and Fortunately for me like so there was a lot of people that were on steroids. Like where I came from New York. The Gym was like it was very clear that it was full to horizon. I mean everyone was super jacked and crazy strong but I was never really that enticed by it. Because I didn't my friends didn't do it. my brother. Chris didn't do it at the time and stuff like that and I trained. He was my training partner most of the time but when my best friend started taking them I was kind of interested. I was like What is this about so I started looking at it researching it a little bit. Never messed with it until I was a little bit older. Because my friends sucked and it didn't matter what he took. He's still sucked. I was Kinda lucky that like if he would've jumped passed me. I probably would have gotten on them like eighteen or nineteen years old but luckily for me. he was a shitty lifter matter what he did that. Influence me that much until till later on so you also got great genetics to man. I'M A I've been like skinny fat my whole life so it took so much for me to mold what I have in the like Something it's passable. I guess yeah I definitely have genetic. Sabih a strong. I mean the first time I like lifted like with with friends and stuff I mean I was already lifting a little bit but not that often first time ever lifted with my friends. I mean they couldn't press sixty five pounds and I was doing one thirty five for a couple of reps and it wasn't it was just. I don't know I don't know why that was gifted to me but that was just there. You know from the beginning and I definitely not my family and I think that's why so many people resonate with you so much because I know that's why I did you know like in a video game so much that it was like it messed up a little bit Group up skinny fat. That's me like still to this day but then you look at your physique now just like Oh shit. What's that Guy Doing Andrew? I got news for a- you WanNa let him in on this. He's not skinny fat. Now you're not skinny about anymore. Well see I feel that way. I don't know newsflash all right. Well it's it's my life who he looks. Great thanks. It's crazy what you carry with you mentally from like years of never being like like now like when. I meet people like we had ingredient this last weekend and it was like a meet. People like man like like asking me. It's still so weird to me that people ask me for advice. Immersive what do I do to get huge? And I'm like giving muscle and I still feel like I'm just this tiny like it's wild day. You tubes wild man and that's funny because we had Mike Israel on who's just a freaking gorilla and Selfishly I always ask everybody on the podcast. Like hey like what if somebody is about one? Seventy five trying to do this and that and it's only describing myself but you have to put out a basically a low fat like bodybuilding pizza and so I asked Mike about it because I I saw deals like dude. I gotTa make that Pizza. That REMINGTON was just cooking. Looks Freakin delicious? In the short answer was like You could make an. It'll you know kind of resemble a Pizza. Kinda tastes like a pizza and I'm like I don't know man when you haven't had pizza and that's your that's your favorite thing ever the way. This guy cooks it and it came out pretty good. I was like kind of surprise but where did like like all these recipes. Come from like is it just by trying to over and over or so any to be honest a lot of the recipes like I'm literally just like scrambling for a video and I'll usually make these. I'm really really hungry. And I'm trying to find ways to like fit fit things into my diet. Some googling like you know Kito pizza recipe. And then you'll have like because there's all these people that make all these recipes and they're just everywhere and then they'll find one and I might tweak it or might as verb a make it But you know. I've over the over. The course of Youtube I've discovered quite a bit. I mean don't think I've done like six pizza recipes On the channel. And you know it gets. I was talking about my dictum personality but like this last November I was in the best shape of my life has down and I was eating like three those pizzas and night pole. Yeah there I mean but if my macro read it and what is this I mean you can answer however you want but it was. Pd free or was this just like my mom. My last shred. Yeah my cycle for the last one so I did a five five home. He was one point. Seven test prop every other day. What's that add up to in like a week like six hundred so as six hundred test a week and then on the last the last four weeks I did Anwar Seventy five milligrams every day? And how many weeks have shred? Was this twelve twelve? How do you let like get well? I don't know how you do your stuff but do you feel like you always use stuff. Would you shredded you like you stuff general or like house? I mean so right now I'm on CRT So at one hundred fifty milligrams a week. So I'm always on that which I feel like If you feel like the first few cycles I did. I really Kinda messed my levels up so permanently or just like. I mean I I mean I was off for about eleven months and I couldn't even explain how I felt like I felt depressed. I felt like I was in this really weird place I saw it was so strange because it just felt like normal to me and then when I got on TRT it was like it was almost like there was a light bulb that went back off and I was like. Oh this is how I'm supposed to feel okay. Woke me back up so I don't know You know it. It's I understand. A lot of it can be mental. But I don't think I'm ever GONNA try to go off charity. No Yeah not when it makes it so much easier to just like Every RECOVER FASTER. I feel like my body was food better. I hold on on air teed off I hold like ten extra pounds of body weight just being on territory also how much easier is like even just youtube videos and stuff and having the energy to get through the entire day of. Shit that you have going on on. Trt I mean it it helps. I mean it's Testosterone in general manages. Its I love it. I love it something that I it's something I you know. I share often that I use you know and I and I think it's important but every once in a while I kind of forget you know like I because I've been doing it for so long you know and so somebody's like oh well that's your experience because you're on stuff and I'm like well that's fair. That's actually fair because I sometimes forget how how invigorating. It is like if I was if I was to go off of them. I would feel totally and completely fine if it was a long enough time that I was off of them for but like you said even like ten months eleven months a year It can take a long time and I think a precautionary tale for everybody. Is You have to be really careful when you come off steroids. If you've ever thinking about using them and if you're ever thinking about like hey I'm going to use them for this and then I'm gonNA come back off of them. You gotta be really. You got to be really cautious because I have never suffered from depression in my entire life except for when I came off steroids. I didn't even know what it was. I was emotional and it was just. It was weird and luckily you know have a lot of good people around me and stuff so it never became thing. I don't have any Other things that I'm addicted to or nothing like that but I could see you know how somebody could take their own life or how someone could be aggressive. People talk about road rage and people talk about side. Effects of steroids. Side effects of steroids are real first of all. Secondly when you come off of them that's when you'll get hit hard with them you'll get the acne you'll get depression you'll get a you'll get all kinds of stuff so I just. I like to point that out to people because steroids are great. Like I love him. I've said in the movie bigger stronger faster. I'll probably be on and off the rest of my life and here. We are ten fifteen years later. And I'm St- I'm still enjoying them. I I do like them but people need to understand. It is a drug. It's very dangerous so you need to be cautious with it. And if you're thinking about doing them you should be researching in. I'm sure when you started your first one. Not only did you have people around you your first cycle but you probably also researched it correct. Yeah I did a H- I guess you know the research was there but the the problem is it's so easy to find like self validating research like reading all the benefits a trend. You know and then like I do trend. That was the fucking worst decision I ever made. This is terrible boys two doors in my house I was not sleeping ruining bedsheet. That wasn't a good time at all. Yes yeah and I mean it's a it's knowledge but it's also like I mean you don't understand really what you're getting into and so you you really come off of it you know. And then you're like 'cause like it wasn't. I mean I was definitely depressed when I came off but it was so weird because like you know I did this. Like crazy power. Pc T I think it was like Dr scalise power so I had like Nova decks. Clo- mid eight. Cg everything spent like top dollar and have the best piece jagged half. And I thought you know after the first month and a half you know being offered. I just kind of forgot that I was off in. Didn't even realize until I got onto your T. That a mush. It was not good. You know and it was. It wasn't even so much depression but maybe this is just like a side effect of depression but it was. I was just so unmotivated training. I was like my youtube videos. Were just Kinda home. I was Kinda Blah mood. You know do. Do you understanding going into it. That If you do it there's There's a chance for some long term repercussions for sure. He's gotTa be smart on your Youtube Channel. I'm wondering how is it that you share that information because mentioned this on on other episodes before but I noticed that a lot of individuals that share a of this stuff. They're even what's his name. John Meadows said that a lot of these guys doing dangerous amounts of these driest then an unnecessarily high amounts and the thing is. It's like you look at Youtube. You know teenagers wash it. Fifteen sixteen seventeen year old men or boys right and they WANNA get bigger fast so I feel like it seems that I mean. I'm assuming that the way that you're sharing. This information is somewhat safe and precautionary especially for guys that that age group you know so. I really don't talk about this stuff. Much on Channel I've made a video while back where I talked about it. I'd just I'd been off zero for four or five months or so and I made a video about like my experience with them because my biggest thing about the whole steroid thing was I was terrified of getting to monetize in general like I've always like when I started channel especially I tried to write when I started. My Youtube was during the It was this ad gate or something else thing to happen. Where they were like Ed demonetarizing everybody Goofy Shit and I just started my channel so I was like. I want to be family friendly. We have no cussing. We have nothing. It's GonNa be a hundred percent by the books so if you wash my own videos compared to now I'm like hey guys how are we doing? Yeah no cussing no jokes. No nothing kind of always wear You know with the whole steroid thing. I was that same thing I mean. I don't want to put steroids in title of my video and get you monetize so To be honest I really like this. Podcast I think is the first time I've ever really talked about what was in my cycle and everything last time I did it. I just I don't know like I I don't I don't I don't claim natural. I don't you don't have admitted using steroids in the past but I try not to understand so many of these kids are so like so influenced by this stuff and I just don't I don't know what the best approach is. If I were to even talk about it could make video about my current steroid use and all that but I'm like I wonder what benefit that gives any party involved. Yeah Immune probably will just entice them to take it since they look up to you and they they they WanNa have your physique so I do think that's great to not talk about it a whole lot and then if people ask you then you can decide on on how you're going to handle the situation if someone DMZ or something you could say. Hey Look I take. But you're fifteen and I don't think it'd be a great idea. You should wait till you're older. Wait till your natural testosterone production goes down right you know in. That's always my advice. I mean I didn't do. My Cycle Ta was what twenty four twenty four years old and I think a lot of the people say twenty five. I did it twenty four and wait till you're at least. Outta MOM and dad's house you know what I mean. Yeah man and then have the money and how have enough at least to repair for the whole cycle a buyer? Pc in the beginning. And like you know because I I've heard stories from people where it's like. They bought they buy like a bottle at a time and then like their dealer goes to jail. Damn alright yeah like by it all at once and then there's a lot to be said to mainly even now like I'm still learning about like how to properly train. I'm still learning about what the best diet is for me. It's always working SP- good good growing learning experience like I switched my training up about a maybe like six weeks ago. Or yeah about six weeks ago. Kind of like around right before I started the Carnivore. Diet and Yeah just I'm always learning. I'm always trying to be you know better. So you mean you'd never know as much as you think you know and until you know so you can do a lot naturally without ever getting on anything and I definitely didn't take my own advice on that one. I wish I would have waited longer. What's your training? Look like. What did you switch from? So it's not necessarily like I switched on like the types of movies. I didn't go from my body building to cross fit. You know nothing that goofy but just pushing myself harder and So like when I started the Carnivore Diet I so I had this really bad shoulder injury that kept me from doing a lot of things coming from overhead shoulder. Press coming from any sort of flat bench. It kept me from Squad Scott Pretty painful if I had like like values to really hurt And then once I started the carnivore diet. That pain like disappeared so I was like okay. Now actually push myself again. Let's see how strong we really are? And then I decided every lift. I did kind of been a pussy in the gym for Awhile. I kept the same weights. I was doing the same same. Sats wasn't pushing myself at all for fear I was GONNA get another injury. I was GonNa make more her more. Whatever and once. All that pain went away. I started like screw it. I'm GONNA try like. How heavy can I go like? Let me let me just do. Twelve wraps up to twenty five hundred square foot. Three thirty five on can do and start training a lot heavier. I swear like I don't know if it's the carnivore died or if it's the training stimulus but I'm feeling really good right now. Really good has there been any other changes that may have led to your shoulder feeling better Even like to go to be honest Like the crazy thing was when I started the Carnivore Diet Right. obviously The biggest catalyst for it was Joe Rogan. Seeing him talk about he's like I lost this weight and I honestly went into it looking for a way to eat. I guess without like having the Schratt coury like you know that was my initial mindset site because that was a lot of people assume that you can get into this and don't have to track calories which Experience with that have not proven to be true. That's actually pretty false. Because I still gain weight of maintenance ship on a meat especially Texas Barbecue but Yeah Man Yeah. I got stories about that shit but I went into this like diet just like With this mindset that I was just GONNA lose weight. That's only thing I thought about it. I didn't care about healing. I didn't know if I believed in it. I've done done done all these guys. I've never gotten any real benefit. All she wants to talk about like. Oh Kyo. Brain was so clear out. Fuck So I go into this diet and I'm literally like four days in of just me and my shoulder that has been hurting like it's been a problem for probably four to five years now like a really bad problem. Four days in it was like it still kinda hurt but it was like I don't know some was different like I could sleep on at different. I wasn't because it was so bad I can reach out and grab something certain way and it would just like it would send me the shock in my shoulder and I. I was at the point where I thought I needed. Thought I was going to need surgery. I remember thinking that I'm like ought to find someone to like. Get shoulder surgery. Only twenty nine years old like is this too early like I really thought I was fucked and boom like about. Let's say probably two weeks into the gone. Were Diet. My shoulder pain Was Gone but I hadn't really noticed it in the gym yet and I remember when I had this guy Shelter Tony has ls. He came in a met. Me and I gotta lifting with them and stuff and I don't know if I was. We were lifted. He kind of inspired me to lift harder because LS is a terrible condition. This dude is in a wheelchair and he stole in their lift and it really inspired me so I just want to lift as hard as I can. While he's here. I started just putting all the weight on and His he can only do machine some sort of inclined bench machines and things like that hadn't done in like a year and a half and I sat down and did them loaded the weight up and Yeah no pain no nothing and carnivore diet. I don't know but I got to me. That could be the only. That's the only thing that's changed. That's it most of the way of eating that you like doing before. I know you're doing if it misses your macro tracking but I'm more so curious about like how much carbs reading per day at the time for your body weight like what did that look like for you. So I so at the end of my shred so around in like November A lot of pictures. You'll see on my instagram where. I'm like super shredder. Smart recent video clips in I think at the bottom of that was about one hundred. Thirty five grams of carbs day in my diet was an traditional sense. I remember there was a period. I went through where it was really really really a quote unquote clean sobs leading like a pound of vegetables a day. Easy like a pound. Houdini Day on eating a lot of sweet potatoes And a lot of chicken breast and a lot of chicken thighs. I kept it ready simple but I remember man. I was at the end of the shred. Not Now obviously I've been destroyed yet on carnivore but Towards the end of that shredded. I remember I was eating. Like yeah and blueberries. I remember like what I thought should have been the perfect diet. I'm feeling like total trash like I know I don't know if that's me. Just all the cardio and the deficit whatever but I felt like shit remember just being like in my head like should I feel better. This is the cleanest my diet has ever been the most veggies. I've ever eaten getting fruit through every single day. I'm taking Greens outer. I'm getting Mike. My protein sources will go to know shakes and Yeah I and then after that inevitably every time that I die like this I go through a little relapse period where I'm eating. Whatever the hell gets put in front of me so I would say Yeah all through December up before yeah all a December a little bit early January In a kind of from Thanksgiving on diet was kind of You know I wouldn't be tracking much. I was Kinda just if I want cheesecake. I'm going to have it if I want. You know whatever I want him to have it. Mainly gold is to hit my protein requirements for the day and then Probably about four hundred grams of carbs or so. A Dad was an like you mentioned the shoulder in terms of carnivore. But I'm curious it's been what thirty three days you said correct. Yeah what else you feeling other than the shoulder has anything else changed in terms of. I guess the way you look at food your habits as far as food's concerned or is the main thing you found your shoulder well all right. So where where? Where do we begin So the the biggest thing for me. We'll have always struggled with with my Dick Personality. And all that is I am so addicted to sugary sweet carbs right anytime. I'm dieting and a meticulously tracking. I live for that Saturday. Cheap mill I live for it and I plan ahead. I'm like all right I I. I'm GonNa have the cheesecake. We're going to go here then. I'M GONNA have this desert from here. We're GONNA order American Cookie Company and I'm going to have a cookie butter in the fridge for your home. Is this whole ordeal right. And I'm like it's all I think about all week obsess over. I can't wait for my Saturday night. Right since starting carnivore. I like almost like all my cravings of disappeared. Not that doesn't sound good or sound appetizing. But like like there's a jar of cookie butter in my pantry. Right now from my buddy just came and stayed with me for a week and he had some food left here if that was up here at any other time in my house. I'd have already sword swallowed that like I don't I just it's so it's an almost two. It's like the benefits. I'm getting from this diet. Has Me also not not not even wanting to have a car like our refused to and it's almost like meat itself has taken on a taste? That never had before. Insult to me is like my new sugar. Like it's in the flavor of it like So my diet here lately. Eight the same thing almost every day and Is All I'll do a pound of eighty five fifteen lean ground beef. I'll do I'll do a pound four ounces of chicken thighs and I'll do six large eggs. That has been my daily driver every single day and then once a week I'll add in eight ounces of beef liver which is disgusting. A terrible terrible that for taking shots. The first I'm eating it what are we is. There's gotta be a better way fellows but that that's been my diet. I look forward to think about just those foods into like look forward to them as much as I do like. I just can't wait to get home. And I know I get that thing of ground beef with like an inch or two of grease in the bottom of the ball you know I got the chicken thighs airframe so they come out real nice undecided. That's all I really want. And then she meals on carnivore. I've still kept my cheap meals. One hundred percent zero car so my I have three go. To's that I do. I'll do others applauders right down the street. So they don't bread their wings. I I believe they do. Fry them in some sort of vegetable oil. So I mean you know. Take that as you will. But I'll get their wings. Three zero carb all. You'RE GONNA play those I'll go to Texas barbecue place and get about three to four pounds of meat e thou- with just salt. No sauce or go to a Brazilian steakhouse down the road. And just kind of bring me meet and eat that no carb as well so it's But you know I used to eat cray crazy shit. I would literally be on my couch and me. And my buddy. We had such terrible like relationships of food towards the end. And we like you know played off of each other and man we'd be sitting on my couch and I would get like real sick to my stomach. I'd get up and I'd like literally throw up from so much food. I beg man. I'm glad I got some room now. Real talk man real talk at all. That's Gone Start Garda. War for Real yes Diet Gray I would say my thinking So one thing I noticed too is that I think a lot less moody if that makes sense like I used to be Not Not not like I'm an asshole but you got the days where you're just. Kinda like fuck this guy you know and a lot of. That's kind of gone a lot. My all his short and my mood and Mike my anxiety and I'm usually always kind of like a racing. I guess in my head to like okay. GotTa get together. GotTa do this do that myself. Get anxious and worked up on a lot of that's gone completely strange and then energy levels throughout the day I mean she says four thirty in the morning and I still feel like I'm full of Energy Chock full of it and now this is pretty awesome it. I'm really curious because like you're coming from you know I used to do if it fits your math because I really track a lot And then I implemented a little bit of fast and he gave me a little bit more control or stuff and then I stopped tracking and I've been able to maintain stuff. I'm eating very low. Carb sometimes no CARB and now. I'm wondering have you thought about How long you're GonNa are you gonNA stick to mainly Carnivore Are you going to add a little bit of carbs here? And they're like what? What do you think your transition looks like? If there's even going to be a transition you know So my my original thought process going into this thing was to run the die for thirty days. Cr I feel you know report back. I'm like Oh get some content out of it. It's another notch in the belt of like experience when it comes to dieting and I originally originally was like thirty days. It's going to do but Man I am I I almost feel too good to like. I'm like okay if I start eating. Carbs again in my shoulder gets all messed up again. I can't lift his heavy and I feel like shit then like what's what's the point just for some carbs especially now because like you know. I had a nicotine habit that was like three and a half years old. I was a big dipper. I would do a skull winner. Green pouches and I would have in and out all day while I was diving. 'cause that was just something I would do and I see I was able to start a carnivore. I quit that as well. I haven't been able to do that yet. But it's almost like all my addictions And even going back to alcohol to like my desire to like race and get his fucked up as I can as fast as I can. I'm just I'm almost more content with life. I'm just cool with my lot in that moment. I'm like all right like this ain't so bad you know like yeah it's a. I think honestly so I've been doing lately. The last came back from Ohio. Speaking of hopefully none of us have that corona but I just got back from Ohio and leading up to that in a while I was there. I did Oh Matt so one meal a day while I was there that way. I wasn't you know things do crazy cited Omayyad with a carnivore and I think those two for me at least right now is like the perfect sweet spot so I can have my big meal at the end of the day at the Kremlin food down and can still keep my calories low and somehow I. I don't think I've ever taken a trip successfully like I did for the Arnold came back like in better shape when I left. I done that yet. And that was the happened on this diet for sure and your your workouts are feeling really good like I personally haven't had any carbohydrates Other than like a glass of wine or two here and there Haven't eaten like potato haven't had rice. I haven't had ice cream or pizza or anything like that in probably like one hundred something days and I just continued. I continue to feel better. I my strength is backup like I. I feel awesome. Are you continuing to feel a little bit better even even without any carbohydrates in your diet you know a lot of people like the one concern? I had when I first started. Everybody was saying pumps. We're GONNA be shit because I wasn't gonNA carbs in my system. No glycogen or whatever My workouts are the best. They've ever been my. I feel the biggest I've ever felt as far as disarming the gym and I Dunno it's like maybe it's just as a pseudoscience in my brain or whatever but like I've kind of justify it is like all right. So why does the healing work? What why am I stronger? I'm like well I'm taking in pure animal tissue and that's really about it. You're taking in tendons the muscles the proteins and all that and you have nothing in there that's GonNa like slow at upper stop it like when I read Dr Sean Baker. Like little excerpts from from something he had with the anti nutrients that are in vegetables. And like there's all toxins that are poisoning you and shit. I'm like I mean. Damn you know here meet has everything you need. It doesn't have anything that you don't need same case can't be made for fruit or vegetables an end from what I've seen. I think I was watching Joe. Which by the way to sharpen up for this little interview thing here. I watched your Joe Rogan with a union brother. I watched that muscle guys did. Yeah one of these days. I'll get on their bide my time but I was watching it. I think it was a doctor. Rhonda Patrick Maybe or something. They were saying that like the toxins in vegetables are like it's beneficial because your body gets stronger by fighting them off but in my head. I'm like why fight him in the first place when you don't have to write well and also through that that that may be one hundred percent true If somebody's completely healthy you know but maybe it's not true if you're having sugar and you're eating some other things maybe it's too much. There's too much going on. So maybe this kind of clearing out. I mean we've heard. Aw You know over the years about cleansing diets but I just think. The cleansing diets have been inaccurate. But I think that people been cleansing the wrong way. I think there's no more cleansing diet that you can do. Then Carnivore Diet to the point. Where five days in people are shitting like crazy. 'cause it's like whoa everything out of there because it's I think it's just removal of toxic. Waste your body's like we don't need to hold onto this bulk this fiber that's in our gut anymore and just blows it right on out of there and then a few days later you're kind of okay. How did you have an experience like that? Jesus Christ that first couple weeks honest thing you can trust a fart. That's a pretty lean problematic. You know if you had on now that was a dude In that in that it would come out of nowhere. There was no buildup where like item to take shit in the next two to three hour. No WARNING RAMP UP ON. Ya Yours on the couch girlfriends sitting next to you oh shit and and the the like the frequency is down right so it's like now. I'm like once every two to three days compared to like every day on the money right and then Like this is this terrible but the smell is so much more like Ooh like in your face. You Eat asparagus. And you piss that dude asparagus. Like now when I do carnivore pungent I mean but it seems to be getting better but being as far as I am. And it's definitely not as solid liquid is it was it definitely was just pure lava for a second Almost like why does it earned two like? Why DOES IT BURN ANYTHING HOT? But now now it seems a little better. We're like fifty fifty kind of like right in the sweet spot I think. Are you eating anything else? Other than You mentioned Meat eggs and I think yes. I'm sorry so every eat anything else. I guess if I if I am so I am not having carbs other than if we're counting. Thc edible. Gumy's I will have one of those at night. Typically they have sugar on the outside but I wash it off as much as I can and then I eat it so I would assume there might be four or five grams of Carbon. Tiny little gummy. You know But other than that I STILL DRINK. Diet Soda. I do. I'm I'm a diet soda man but other than that. I'm trying to think now off. I don't Occasionally a more than zero calories Eurocorps Energy during type of guy some definitely still getting some chemicals in in that way but Yeah I don't I feel great. I feel great. I think plant serve. I don't think they're really meant to be food. I think they're meant to be medicine. And I think is great. I think Crayton is great. I think marijuana's crate him bud. We'd have talked about crate. Him and Helios do it all right. So my experience so you're super procreate him. I love him okay. I'm not anti crate him. But we went off the deep end. Man Okay so having trouble with Perga- sets in the past and all that shit so this was man was moved to Houston slow. Let's call it about five six months ago. I was at the gym and there was this dude that was always in there. Used to be a heroin addict but Kukoc you know he came up to me in a really really nice guy comes into me one day and your we'd always talked about our addictions. I should in the past and he comes up man so I found this stuff man. It's not addictive feels really good. You know it's called Craig's them and I've no idea what creidim is. I have no clue. But he's so adamant about it and I should've tell because he had that look look to him like she's back. I'm like all right man He's like let me run home and get you some and you can always tell this house going. He drove home. God himself talked so he gives me like six capsules like loaded to the brim. I think each one was like half a gram something right. So he says take these you know. He's like there's no chance of withdrawal. There's no it's literally like it's a plant man you know that's like the number one. It's a plan. You know so all right like bucket so me and my girlfriend went out and a dinner. I took them as Holy Shit. I feel good like I. This feels great so Fast forward a couple of days and me and my buddies we were going up in Columbus and I didn't want to drink I just started I think yeah I think I just started like my last cutting their something so I was like well. I'm not going to drink but I I WANNA get a buzz still stop at this dispensary thing. They up there and bought like the cheapest hell so he bought a Tony Craig. And we bought these Over like a gatorade. Zero-sum are pouring into these making these nasty disgusting sludge drinks so me and my buddy it is chugging these outside outside of this bar do we walk in and I am looked up on them but like remember sitting there. We'd look at each other now looking at my buddy chance of like is this stuff legit and he can barely look at me of I. League is legit and So I went on. I had all this crate him so on like a probably like like a thirty day just like every night man kept doing more kept doing more and then it was like it came into like. I would do five grams every time I take it that I'm doing like fifteen twenty grams a day. Wow Yeah do that shit with Spiros Bud and I didn't realize how Obviously in my hand my plant is a plant and then I was like all right like one day. I just didn't take it. I was out and my God. Yeah I think we're done 'cause I bought so much upfront about one hundred bucks worth upfront and then I just quit taking it. And I'm like Oh I feel like Shit Damn and then like I had probably three days where legit withdrawal. I wouldn't say it was as intense as Percocet but I would draw out in the same manner that I did. Come off that shit and it scared me to death crate him. And since then I've been like I I don't I don't WanNa feel that way again. I like my spirit stratum. I like when people share experiences like that because you know I saw Craig. I have a product called mind bullet but I think it's great when people share experiences because that way people can see if it's going to be right for them. It's not going to be right for everybody you know and I've had good experiences with it. I haven't really had Any withdrawals I go off of it here and there. I'll just take three to five days off Randomly and then I see how connected I am stuff you know I just. I'll test that out with coffee. All tested out with them. Now see like am I really like overly relying on it too much and sometimes I am. Sometimes I'm like taking too much of it so I just take a step back and when I do take a step back. I haven't had any any issues but I have talked to. People like yourself that have had issues One of the athletes that we had come here recently kind of had similar experience That you had so. It's important that people understand. I would never say to anyone that you could haphazardly. Take anything whether it's amino acids or whether it's you can't eat as much meat as you want on a carnivore diet and expect to get shredded. You know so. There's a overabundance of just about anything you know. I I went into it and I was looking up. We I said earlier. Like you're so easy to Google. The information that validates your opinion That's where I was at you know and And I'd see someone that was like no beware. There is a potential from Akkad. Outta here spam doing here government. But you know I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I you know I I was so addicted in the past to opiates. I think that almost like ramped up. Yeah my reaction to it when I came off. 'cause I went I I had went two years off. Opiates and for me. Aw I've been able to quit everything I've ever done with zero outside help so zero. I've never had to go to Rehab. I never had to take you know. Go to a doctor and I was able to do it. Your Grit that shit out but With the Berga sats that was that was really rough and it was like soon as the crater left of those feelings came in it was almost like it just echoed about almost exact same feeling but like toned down a little bit whereas my buddy was doing just as much crate him and he was just kind of more tired today. But it ain't so bad you know he just was kind of over it right away but yeah I mean Shit works yeah. Those are some large warriors are just. I mean you know and I think from what I read. They said that If you keep it between like three to five grams or whatever a day or you keep your doses dosage like good. You're fine but when you're just fucking man I was just like any moment I could squeeze it in. I remember like play video games with some friends and it was like rundown real quick. Hold on let me get just boom slam gatorade zero filled with crate him. You know you mentioned the percocet thing. What look what was that all about in exactly what our percocet. Because I remember like Molly Percocet. Molly's hell of a drug to bow to ran into that one this past Saturday night. That's a hell that's a hell of drug boys still recovering But now the Percocet man that's basically a prescription painkiller So on the the ones I'm from Logan Ohio South Eastern Ohio really rather border West Virginia and other really bad like angel problem. They're like really bad heroines really bad opiates really bad and it used to be a they call it. There's a name for it. There was like this highway. That would run from my go to Florida. Down in Florida. You could legally get all these prescription pills or it was a really easy to get them. And I remember people I knew would take these trips from Florida. Ohio with just like bags and hundreds of perk thirty and was one of those things I went off to college and up. Some of that stuff was around but it wasn't like a little bit at a party here a a little bit of this little bit of that but when I dropped out of college Proud moment moved back and I got a job at a gas station. First job ever worked at a circle K A member. I was in there and I moved to a city. I didn't know anybody and I was Kinda just doing my job on home. Playing Video Games didn't know a soul in a buddy from a high school or from high school had came into work one day. They came in how you doing. And I'm like Oh not too bad how you been. We caught up to a party tonight. If you WANNA come show up you know. And he's a time. I had no friends nothing where I was at so I was like yeah. I'm down I'm discarded into anything. I show up to this already. I realized that like there's like no alcohol. Almost everybody just breaking these bills up norton them and yeah. Hey you wanna do salmon like shared. I'll do anything once and I did. It and I felt like incredible. You're like oh my gosh like life is good now and I started hanging out with those people. And you're you're around him and it's just like that's his master's what they do and then you just even being around all your around and he's becomes normalized and then before you even know it you're kind of just having some fun and you know like it's the next thing you know you're getting sick when you don't have them and then your friends are are stealing from you and then shit is kind of out of hand and Yeah what what prompted me to actually quit? Was I remember? I was going to because what I would do. I wasn't making a ton of money. Obviously the gas station so I would do was I would like get my money together and I would buy like percocet and then I said two or three that I could afford because they were like thirty dollars. A pill right get two or three and also by sub oxen to not be sick coming off of the pills so taper between paychecks at a system right and I remember. I was leaving this drug house one day and over by this cop and I was in the middle of pillow crushed up on the CD case right and up cop pulls me over my shit. I swallow everything. Adam wiping the CD case off and he found the CD case. Is There Matanzas? And you're going to go to jail and I was like It's just creating now tested and somehow I by the grace of God didn't come back as anything and he let me go. Anabolic shocked me and like Holy Shit. Like I'm just doing this whole thing and I got could've just been like six felonies right there. Wow so yeah cold Turkey man. How is it that you were able because you mentioned that like all your all your home at the time? We're doing this stuff. And one of the biggest things that people have a problem with is not just detaching from the drugs that they're doing but detaching from those people did you like. Are Those still friends that you have or did you know I look at the trajectory? It's actually funny. Well I mean not funny but looking back on. In retrospect unknown of those guys are doing good not one of them a couple of But but by the time this kind of all went down to because I will say right. I mean there's a big stigma with the people that are into drugs. That like they're all just like. I was probably the most honorable dude doing drugs like like in that whole group like I was added job. I was the one that they would like. Hey I'll pay you back on Friday. They knew I was good for it. I never stole from anybody. I never had to start lying in my family. Went missing or no shit like that like I handle my shit. Did Miss Work like I got it done so I think integrity in and of itself I kind of had maybe a little more more than more than You know some of those guys did but Get You get robbed of that when you're in in it for too long you know so you probably weren't far away you know from the act. I mean I had my house broken into And they got my laptop my xbox they got a bunch of phones. I had up in the closet. I would like that worked for cell phone company towards the end I would have cell phones out buying resell so like they knew all my stuff was asking when broken and Gami pretty good news. Kind of realize But it's also that thing too right so it's on the same boat is like let's say we've had drinking friends friends. You go out and you party with a wants. The partying stops you. Don't really see him anymore. Now it's kind of the same same what you realize a lot of these kind of show up because they knew you had the money that you could buy some they might get cut in on a bill with your something you know so kind of weeded them out pretty quick and then on top of that like I joined the gym not too long after that too so it was like New People. The Gym itself is like just a whole whole new group of social things to be involved in. Yeah kind of back on that Carnivore kick a little bit back on the Carnivore Diet You mentioned May still counting calories and paying attention to your macro. So is that something that you do. And then also While you're on the carnivore diet counting calories and then additionally how have the habits change you know like it? It sounds to me like you mentioned cooking something. An air fryer sounds like you're cooking all your own meals. I realized that when you do rose you might do some meal. Prep but you know my experience. I think in Seema's experiences well has been like we don't really we never meal prep like we don't we don't have you know we don't have tupperware you know we don't. We're not doing anything like that. If we eat breakfast we'll just cook it ourselves. If we eat dinner Rolls Cook it ourselves. We do a lot of fasting and stuff like that. What's been your experience. What what's your days look like while I'm pretty. I'm pretty big on cooking like I love to cook. I off in that with everything I do. I'm always right here in my crib so I always have access to my kitchen so nice. I'm always big on like Like when I was in Ohio I wasn't able to track log anything really because you can only do so much. When you're going to restaurants and stuff which my go-to while I was out and about I would get up. We go to these restaurants that I would get to a half pound burgers with Lou Cheese and Bacon on him. Now I don't do dairy like if it's just me cooking. But if I was out of his way to get cheap fat 'cause eating carnivore out at a restaurant is expensive to get all your food in especially on something like fifty dollar meals. You know to Burgers Blue Cheese and bacon on them. Then I would get up. Usually try to get at least a pound of grilled chicken on the side. I would get a side of blue cheese dressing up my fats a little bit but I did that same meal every single day in Ohio. But if I if. I'm here now home like I said earlier. My big thing lately has been mad but six eggs pound four ounces chicken thighs and a pound of eighty five fifteen ground beef and a yeah. I Cook For one I like to save money so I cook as many of my meals. I can't I know for a hundred percent. I guess me to my Mac gets me my goal but to I mean saves money really I mean I think I can think I can eat for like eight dollars and fifty cents a day so with my current setup which isn't bad that's cool if you shot a video talking about that so funny thing is actually. I'm in the middle editing. One right now yes absolutely. That's so that video will come out. Hopefully I can get it out Friday my new album drops. And you're trying to coincide at all where like the video can be. Promo for the drawing project so But Yeah As far as calories though when I first came into this diet so I was big on the zero carbs sub read it. I was Kinda reading people's experiences on this diet. Which by the way for anybody. Listening Zero Carbon Zero. Carb is a pretty terrible source of information. Supertalk can't stand him on goofy people over there man? I've read some of the goofy show ever read in my life on the zero Brett. Those people don't believe calories. Count at all like this dude was like I read this story that made me want to blow my brains out like three three hundred fifteen pounds right. And he's commuting three pounds of ground beef day. I'm having all these like I'm not losing any weight. I feel tired. Need up your fat. You need to eat mort like no this do leave. His goal is to lose weight and he's eating all this crazy shit like I know stupid people man. I got banned so when I first started soon I started this diet my My big thing was I'm reading all this shit on there and be like you don't have to track your calories off your hunger into all that stuff and So I wasn't tracking my calories was Kinda eating meat. You know eating whatever and I started the Diet initially and I dropped down to like one ninety two and dropped on one eighty five pretty quick like waterway glycogen all that and then I was kind of. I almost got kind of eat. Whatever and the more I did that I started slowly gaining weight and getting a little bit Chubbier. You know I was getting bigger rows definitely putting on size and I was like okay so I kind of want to switch this so I I didn't have to track anything but let me just kind of plug these numbers and get them to wear like. I would not normally start. Start like shred out right which is about twenty two hundred calories a day Judy Gold. From you start so. I just did my matters to there. I want to say right now. What am I two hundred thirty eight grams of protein a day. One hundred thirty grams of fat not has been perfect for me. I do like to have a little more protein and a little less fat Just meet for me personally. I'm still experimenting so I don't really know what works. Best but Yeah that's where I've been every every single day that I'm in control of it and my my new my goal here moving forward so I just got really really shredded but the best of my life on you. Know Standard American bodybuilding diet so jeeze carbs all that stuff and I was eating a pound of vegetables. A day was miserable. Shit could not hold onto that shape because I was so miserable led to an eating disorder right after binge eating her usual So my goal this time right now. I'm on this now that I'm back. I'm locked in my goal. Is I want to get in even better shape this time around. But keep it strictly carnivore so for at least the next seven thirty days at least sixty more days? I know that I'll be one hundred percent carnivore because my goal is to be exciting. I know it can be done. I feel too good. You know I mean I know I can get that shredded. I know I can get that big. So that's the goal moving forward. What some of the science will show. What's very hard overeat on is protein? You know if you look at present. Look up the work from Dr Jose Antonio. He's done some extensive work on protein consumption and they've had people upwards of eight hundred extra calories from protein and still not gain weight or still have a hard time gaining weight. So people out there. I think they're that's what they're getting confused about. You know you can't eat whatever you want. You can't eat as much as you want. But if you're able to over on anything it would possibly be protein so for yourself if you just changed if you just ate an additional hundred grams of protein You could potentially you know. Keep your body fat levels similar the same and one could even argue that. Maybe it would improve because it cost a lot even consume and digest the protein. You know so. I think that's where the confusion is and Just because like I. I don't like counting calories. I don't think it's a practice that is necessary. However they still count they still matter. It's still it's still a representation there still and I don't agree with how calories or even like measured in the first place burning stuff outside of your body. I think it's bullshit but having said all that food still represent a certain amount of energy and you'll have to adhere to that like no one. No one gets a free rider. Free Pass to just pretend that doesn't exist you know. I think that's where people are getting confused. Well this the thermic effect of food. I read this thing once. And it said that Protein is like even though it's technically four calories again ram you really like it's about two point five of that is what your body actually uses because it is so hard for it to break down right but you know we're on this. Eurocorps where I'm reading shit like so normally eggs and Bacon for breakfast. I used to take my toast and sop it up that way but I don't have toast now. How do I saw up all my stuff He's Christ yeah so fat. On the opposite end of that spectrum thermic defect is like every calorie fat is like one hundred percent utilized by the body so I think that if I was eating Yoshikawa like I feel like that's where my diary now's tailored a little less towards a lot of fat little more towards the protein because I'm trying to get a little bit of that benefit and I will say I have definitely put on Definitely strength but muscles sized I feel like at least I feel like I'm definitely the biggest I've ever been at the leanest considering my weight so like I said the goal is stretched this stretch. This cut out man do do what I would normally do on a regular on carnivore and 'cause like for real this diet. I mean even if like everything else. I talked about minus the shoulder. Pain was placebo right. Maybe if I'm just hyping this thing up and I'm reading too much on. It's all placebo. There there is no placebo that is allowing me to. I mean I went from not being able to do anything. Overhead showed even just with no way hurt too like the other day. I was wrapping up to twenty five like like. How does that happen right? Like remember my thing. That's that's awesome and I think other people just based off of that should give it a try like if they're knee hurts or their shoulder hurts but what what are they. Don't have anything to lose. It's not dangerous. Well you know in another another benefit too. I didn't even mentioned earlier. Is I've struggled with acne. My whole life. It's always been solved struggled with and At went away a lot Until I got on CRT and then it like it. Almost I on it. I get any one given time and have a big pimple somewhere on my face right since starting this diet. My complexion is the smoothest. It's ever been and I haven't had a new pimple knock on simulated plastic. Haven't got a new pit bulls since so this almost sounds like 'cause I was like Shit when I was out drinking. I was obviously when you're drinking people you know. Ask You about stuff and I was getting asked about the carnivore diet and I have to say like I hate to feel like you know one of those like televangelist preachers you know on stage talking about this diet but the shit is working like something is happening that. I've never gotten to happen with any other. Diet I've ever done so I like. I said I could see myself literally doing this for I mean it's almost like It's almost like taking like if someone told you they give you a pill every day that major shoulder better in made your acne better and made you can even then when I had my cheat meals on Saturday nights used to be much emails. We'll be like ten. I mean easy. Who Ten thousand calories probably and. That's no lie. No Lie chords the end when Bob but on this. It's like at his eat and I'm just like all right. That was good here. We go people try to do so many different things for their skin. You know especially if you see a lot with females there. They got all these skin care routines and stuff and a lot of it has to do with them putting on makeup. You know like if you don't put on makeup in the first place he probably don't to spend a ton of time on Skin care products and washing your face and worrying about your pores and all these different things. But a lot of people just don't understand it's it's really just as simple as making some dietary changes and you start eating junk food. That's going to listen. I mean that's why you know teenagers. They're going through a lot of different things that they have this cascade of hormones but they're also that's when you start to see a lot of kids start to really like crazy in their hunger levels go up. You're seeing a lot of kids eat. More cereal in a more junk is kind of through those. You Know Ages like I dunno. Tend to like fifteen or so is like that kind of pocket where you see kids eating really and it's like well you know yes you have hormones and you probably can't prevent all the acne that you're going to get you can provoke prevent almost all of it through some good sound nutrition you know and I wish some of this information was available. I guess the Internet wasn't even really a super big thing when I was a kid but like to be able to like. If I'd known accu was like the most traumatizing thing. I went through as a kid and right when the acting went away I went bald. So you know it was like Jesus persecuting team growing up But if I'd have known is a kid I was desperate to try anything. It every cremated every like whatever like no one ever wants was like. Hey think it's your diet you know I never had if I'd have known all this as a kid you know me and my friends by this game like all right so if you could go back in time still like senior year and you knew everything you knew now. Would you do it like yeah? We'd have to. We'd have to give all this stuff up. Well I feel that. It's a no-brainer. Think you'd have to another benefit that I want. I WanNa see we can dig on a little bit and I think it's something I've never really heard anybody talk about talk about before is like you said that used to smoke cigarettes and then you stop doing that but then you use you. Were doing dip or not. Yeah shoe or issue and you said that after. Start going on the Diet your want to do that. One away so I feel like cigarettes is something about a lot of people. Want to quit and have a tough time quitting and they a lot of people resort to dip but they also usually want to quit that but they can't so keytar goes through that a little bit until like what you've seen what's happened yeah So my problem gotta got pretty bad especially like when I'm dieting. I would get to this point. Where like you want something. Kinda of just like in your mouth and you know I like you. Just you just want it in there that you would that Oral STIMULATION. So I'll get to this point man where I mean I was buying. I was going to probably a can and a half of a pouches a day. You by fifteen thousand a can throw it in and you know. They're they're in. The addiction lies but like I done this four man. It'd been probably three to four years and I even had a mushroom trip where I'm like in the Middle Trim Balls on mushrooms and I'm looking at my candidate and I go. I will never quit you because I love you so much so I didn't think I was ever going to quit right. True Story Manager Story so Fuck in like I started this whole carnivore thing and me and my girlfriend and talking. Because she's been smoking cigarettes for a while or both Iran. We've always talked about quitting. Could go a few days but like you get so angry and so disliked hate life you would always hop back on it and I won't say that it like took the cravings away completely. I was able to drop it. And there was no mic. Drop and I walked away. Wasn't quite like that. What it would ever in the past always go back to it. On this time. With his died it was almost like I. Guess maybe it's the fact that my mood is more leveled out or my cravings for sugar and kind of my craving impulses in general greatly diminished. But it was just you know it was interest wasn't hard you know and I'm six yet. Were Yeah we're I haven't had nicotine in the yeah about four five weeks something like that but I just made it way Way Simpler to give it up and this is a habit. I've now smoke cigarettes in high school. I smoked cigarettes when I first started fitness. Then I quit cigarettes because about look trashy saw switch to something that wasn't as trashy you know and then I went from the loose-leaf dip to the pouches. Because I was on camera a lot so I didn't want dip in my mouth. My teeth and Now there's something I'd never really thought I would ever give up and It just like now's I don't even care about it and like my buddy came and stayed with me. And he's a big dipper. You dip the whole time. Never once was I was I like now. I can use one of those right now. I just I could've cared less about it. And that's like I said it's been a habit I've had for Manson. I was a kid while I think what the name Remington James. You could've went country. What made you decide like? Have you always been a fan of hip hop How'd you get into rob hundred percent man? One hundred percent benefactor hip hop do so. When I was when I was I I just graduated high school so I guess it would say started. I've always been a hip hop fan Coming from like the whitest city in America like southern Logan Ohio. Do nothing but jacked up. Diesel trucks and rebel flags man and spurs truck nuts dude but I always loved hip hop the only music. I've really ever listened to. It's about all I listen to now and I remember it was my We'd be on the football bus and high school and like we would have. We would have like rap battles and freestyles tear tear all terrible but a we always like fantasize allows eight mile came out and it made. It looks really cool to be like the rapper and the freestyler and all that in my was a my senior year I graduated high school and it was like my first year after high school. I expressed it that I wanted to try rap music right. I was going to try. I remember I think I had put some demos out or someone post about online in. I got shit on by everybody. That knew me every single person. Shit all over me ended up terrified me. You know what I mean and then show you delete everything and then you go into a hermit crab shell for some months and you're ever gonNA recover from this ever and then You know what I saw. I put it to the back burner. Still a big massive Hip Hop fan you know and then fast forward to what was that was actually my first project a year ago. January seventeenth man. Amish by about thirteen months ago I project drops so about I would say twenty months before that. I was kind of just sitting there one day and I was. I have some friends that live close by just dropped one of their music projects and they were like And we were kind of talking about it. I was like why like I've always wanted that. I let people beat me down about it in the past and now is easier than ever to make music as it's easier to make video content. I'm like why couldn't I just put together a little project you know. I have a fan base people. That will mess with it even if it's garbage off some people don't mess with it like why don't do that. That'll be like a bucket list. Childhood thing like dropped off. You know my list so All the equipment about everything I taught myself how to do. Every aspect of IT and Full record my whole first project and put it out and then You know it. It actually went way better than had any right to go. I think I impressed a lot of people because I like you know I think that when it comes to being artistic and creating something that people are consuming you have to have a certain level of intelligence to know if your own ships trash right. Yeah it may not be like Ma my exact John like my exact sound. My honor may not be for everybody. Obviously musical tastes. But you gotTa know when your shits trash like not good. You ever heard someone's music I'm making music in. It's not even on beat on key. It's hard it's hard to listen to clashes right so I think our press not coming out the gate and sounding like everybody else that I went high school with the tried to wrap for one but to yeah I just It's I love it. I love it. It's not I mean it's not like I might make a ton of money off of it or anything I WANNA say like all said and done. It was like a I kind of didn't do too bad but it wasn't anything crazy but Yes just something I love to do it. So it's more like A. I love fitness. I love the dining hall. Dj Bella all that. It's almost like that thing on the side that I can kind of unplug from all of this stuff and be maybe a little more expressive a little more art C. and Just great music. That a you know that I like in that My little tiny little fan base. I think we had We had Ohio definitely over. A million streams. I WANNA say we had. It was something like five thousand people actually purchased the ten dollar projects awesome. So that's a nice little fan base right so everybody's looking for the next one and I'm actually a this time. I went without. If you guys probably heard a little skies have not no okay. He's a new album coming rapper. But this time. I have his mixing engineer with Was basically they take your vocals take instrumentation? They kinda mix it all up. So it sounds the best aca- sound actually got him. He's always actually won a I think he's up platinum mix engineer. He's actually mixed this whole projects for weight and he's not one little tweak on the final song and I'm hoping he can do it today and if he can. Hopefully it comes out Friday distract but if you could collab- with anybody who would it be alive worrying? Who Lo- Wayne billowing. Yeah no one hundred percent what do you. What do you like about Little Wayne so much? Okay so Nowadays I don't think he's as good as used to be. He was in his prime when I was graduating high school. When the car three was coming out he had the drought series of mix tapes. He was on fire. He had a record for why the most features of any artists in a year and it was like there was that timeframe on was between like maybe o eight to like two thousand eleven thousand twelve where he was on like. Every song didn't matter what genre was he was on. And he pioneered that modern rap sound lit at everybody's listening to you. Now that auto tune that more melodic half singing half rapping sound like he pioneered that sound so in his run and his work ethic when he was I. I remember if you were a little wayne. Fan like a Hardaway Fan. He would put out like it car. One cartoon the Carter three was what really blew him up but like inbetween folks. He had the Carter Four. Come out but like in between that. If you're a hardcore fan he always had a mixed tape for you to listen to all the time so we're in college. We got nothing else to do but go to class and get high and party so me and my buddies would just like Oh Wayne State party to memorize every word every lyric and he was just like an idol like huge idol so low Wayne hundred percent on love that a documentary. They have on him in like hit the record company bottom like a phantom or something like that he doesn't even care the like you. WanNa take a picture with it. And he's like okay any stands next to it and they just keep walking like does not care at all. That was actually an eye opening documentary. Because I didn't watch that. I don't think the documentary came out until like years after the fact Your Washington you're like okay like I was a kid like idolizing this man still do but like it. Realize a lot of that was drug-fuelled. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. He's a savage to. I mean he like the stuff that he says is really weird like I don't write anything down because I don't want anybody to copy my shit I don't you know he doesn't even want to have a paper trail of it but then you're like well. How do you come up with such crazy stuff? I mean I really always admired him for the risks that he takes the stuff that he says in his in his and stuff are wild like. I don't think another rapper. Could I don't think another rapper? Could even copy him and have it come out even halfway decent. Yeah he is someone who is like double entendre and some of the like The deaconess of some of his lyrics times. That's what we admired from him. We were like Oh. Did you like the way he would connect all these bars together and tell this story. Yeah his wordplay make. I always wondered how. How was he able to do that? In the studio like off the top of his head you know he's a genius. I think I mean honestly. Yeah because I I I mean so my whole first project. I didn't write like at all for it. I did the same thing but it wasn't. I mean I'm I'm not quite the output though. He wasn't quite the same things what little Wayne was doing. I mean sometimes I'd be sitting here and I would try to go line by line and it would take a couple hours. I'm going to transition to the next thing. But apparently he's going in and knocking out songs and like twenty minutes. How different was it? How DIFFERENT WAS IT? Just a trying to wrap and then actually going into studio recording something. Oh my gosh so First off it looks and sounds easy to do but it's way harder than you would ever imagine so hard like remember when I started because I made my mind but I was going to do it. I'm like all right. You are doing this no matter what who knows this first couple. Few months were rough. 'cause like I didn't even know the concept of like the tempo of Abi or how to even wrap on beat or what it meant to wrap Bombie or what it meant to have a rhyme scheme or what melody even really will idea so I would start right. Like this verse. I thought was good in my phone that I'm trying to like read it into the microphone. It just sounds like I'm reading into a microphone and you're trying to figure out like okay like echo in the rap about like a meal. Prep protein today. What what am I supposed to talk about? So it's It's definitely definitely harder than you think. And then Man and then trying to like share that with a with an audience that follows you for fitness. I I'd I'd say backlash over that for sure yet. Were you so then where you draw your inspiration for your music because I remember if I think it's Kelly muscle back in the day like years ago and I heard some males I oh okay cool cool? Yeah but so. What is your inspiration? Come from for your music. I would say obviously big big fan a little rain. But the sounds changed a lot since then Probably YOUNG THUG. Low Baby GonNa GonNA Roddy Rich Gotcha. I would say. I'm very very influenced by like that new sally. If you listen to my stuff is like I drown it affects. I drowned in auto tune. I'm trying to have that like at Travis. Scott type sounds especially my first project. This new one is is a little cleaner As far as like my first one I mixed it all myself. So it's a Lotta Shit clashing this new one's a little cleaner. But yeah that's like my sound but then also to though. I think it's easy to box yourself in. I would say it's the same with like with anything if you're trying to do Youtube Youtube or whatever is so easy to like if I I think you have to find someone you gravitate towards even try like almost emulate to like figure out your your way but then at some point though You have you kind of find your own. Sounds like more now more than ever on like this next project like I really found my sound. So if there's one thing I'm proud of is like no one sounds like knee. Nice right now and My first and Song Number. One on this project is made to blow everybody's heads off and it's it's way better than has any right to be. I don't know how. How did how did this his way? Better than has any right to be for sure. I like what you're saying there. Because that's important for people to understand they might be like super shy about trying something Because they're like Amanda. I'm Kinda like copying this person but that's the way anybody get started controversy. Is you kind of need to copy? And Youtube is actually a great example of that and he can give you confidence. You don't want to RIP PEOPLE OFF RIGHT But you do kind of need to Imitate you do need to imitate somebody. Because how the hell you ever going to get started. you know. I imitated Louie Simmons Dave Tate and some of these influencers in in Westside barbell and strength training. And that's how I got started. You know the words that came out of my mouth. Were there words? You know. That's how you the tie you get going to take attraction and then as I went along as people would ask questions Their words kind of started to become my own because then I started to have some of my own thoughts surrounding but it takes. It takes a long time to kind of find your find your voice. I commend you on that. It's like that's stuff really hard you know. It's it's very difficult to do. And you know it's good to see people take risks even if it's cringe-worthy like you know. I made a rap video a few years ago and I still get you know still. I've made a few thousand dollars off of rap videos on itunes called meathead millionaire and It was fun it was fun. Like I've always been into rap. I never thought I would like try to rap but I just was like fuck it like. This is fun I would do it before a lot of videos that we shot a lot of videos. I would shoot Power project videos. Where answer question about strength and I would just put like a little rhyme in front of it a lot of times. It started out being something I listened to from Little Wayne from somebody else and then a couple of times. I was like well. Why don't I just see if I can make up some of my own you know and I did and it was fun and when I actually went to a studio to record it it was fucking hard guys like the guys like. You don't hear that like he's like he's like he comes in. It's the third like you know that little noise right there and I'm like so he's like try it again. He's like you came in way too early. You know I can try the next. And he's like you came in way too late I'm like and then he's like wrapping these lines and he's like fucking killing it and I'm like Oh my God I'm like I don't think I'll ever sound like that like he's just. He's as crushing. He doesn't know the song at all but he's like mimicking and just destroy and here I am. I cannot get like on point the way this Guy Williams. I was like Shit. I don't know what I'm doing. Well that's the the whole timing thing so I said like read to learn what the timing of the song is like now I can hear upbeat and if I hear it for even thirty seconds. I have a pretty rough idea about that. Timing is my head knows and I can freestyle gibberish on it and it'll fit right before I didn't know how. Where do you jump in? How do I transition into that? Like that was a you know in like back to what you said about Having to like mimic somebody almost looked for inspiration. Like that's that is literally how everybody does anything nowadays unless you're inventing something from the ground up and even that it's five based on something else like you draw inspiration from somewhere. Yeah an event in with like with anything the more you do it in the more time you put into it like when I if I showed you my first song I ever did You'd listen and you could tell them trying as hard as I can for sure. I'm trying super hard but like certain parts of it would like take you out. You've been whoa okay. That didn't fit. There wasn't here but the more I did it like my first project. Especially you can hear from the first song. They did all the way to the end. 'cause ended up putting like every song other than like my first three on that project. You can hear the record at the end of the beginning. Just the improvement. I think as long as you're willing to do research and practice but the reps in like you can be you can become pretty damn proficient it just about anything you're trying to do. I just think most people give up too soon Or they're not willing to take that that time that it actually takes to to actually develop a skill or like even when it comes to getting lean like I'll work with clients a lot and that's the biggest thing I see but working with a client a twelve week program. A lot of them can do pretty good the first four weeks. But it's that like eight in that twelve and the sharp drop off happens. It's like people are like. Oh this is I just can't do this no more but it's if you if you push through that though because I'm a first four weeks of any cut I do. I've never shredded. I might be looking pretty good but most you will get to that point. Where like Ooh? That wasn't too hard you know. Give up I think Like with anything you know Even this is how long is this. Podcast been around you guys a few episodes to get you know wheels Lou east and turning what's any Like larger goals with wrapping. Like would you like to try to go on tour and like back anything? Yeah I think I would. I would love to but now I have to. I kind of sit down to figure out what was really. What's the smart move financially? You know To to put all my now if I drop this project and I had a song go somewhat viral and so there's a real potential for it. Then I think he got a kind of follow the stars how they align. I'm not a big Am Not like super religious but I definitely believe in like something at play here like it certain times in my life when You know I feel certain doors have opened for me. I can't really destruct like chance you know what I mean. Like certain paths have been lit up for me and Things have always you know. I don't even think I'm really that lucky. I just think that I've been open to so many things that like. I'm good at seeing opportunities when they come up so I kind of follow my gut so if music seemed like it was going good and I started like because right now. This is my number. One moneymaker right in everything. I do revolves around fitness as a hard sell to get people to take my fitness and convert over music. Fan Base doesn't translate that well like I can't be like hey guys and you guys like me you WanNa come see me. Perform it a show. I might get some people but like I would say the majority of my audience is. I have a slightly older audience. Too like Late Twenties Thirties forties fifties. That I'm watching. My content is for died advice about his new youtube channel or new instagram. Have you thought of anything like that? Just to kind of Yeah. I mean I have. I try my best to keep them tie. I do have a music youtube channel but it gets. That's another thing to hire somebody. 'cause like between me shooting all my own videos editing all my own videos doing all my own photos. We have our Supplement Company and our payroll company. That we run. I do like graphic work and designs for and everything. I do all my own coaching targeted at four thirty in the morning to deal with clients to write eleven client lands today. And so it's like yes. I'm just I'm constantly going so the thought of having to add even more to my plate is what makes Mike and I'm trying to train cook. All my meals also cast. I'll solve your problems for you right now. Hire somebody. Yeah probably hire more than one person. It will help a lot. You'll make you'll you'll make a lot more money so hire people. Well the problem with us man a hired somebody About a year. A few years back and You Know Khomych. His name on here but People get. Maybe I'm too nice. You know what I mean and it was kind of a buddy but I let myself get taken advantage of pretty bad bad and so since then so I moved here. It's been not too. I'm kind of I just moved to Houston about four months ago. So I'm like still meeting people figuring out who I can trust. Who's just trying to be friends with me. Because I'm a youtuber and and you know they can get something more who's really like they're so I'm kind of flying solo right now but like I say man opportunities present themselves and when they do I'll take advantage of it but I'm just after getting you know pretty take advantage of last time. Kinda like you know if he don't give up on hoople man. There's good people out there. You'll get someone good to help you. Yeah Yeah we have a good team over here so I highly recommend. Yeah try to bring bring some people in will help you help you be able to expand and you'll be able to concentrate on more stuff that you want to focus on. Yeah and that. That's my biggest thing is finding a finding the time for certain things. There's a lot I'd love to do my brain's always always WanNa you know. I wish I could work more on music. I would love to to have been a year between projects. I've loved to make that four months. You can but you will hire. It'll help I'm telling you did them. As far as the wrappings concern you. Sit here is interested in the music but were you. One of those people like Snoop. Dogg says that he's your savior to come up with rhymes and he's a kid like that and they just came in but then I I don't know where you were you someone who had to really work and think about this type of stuff so the weird weird part is like if I'm if I'm laying in bed at night and I'm just like Kinda halfway between fallen asleep and wake my brain can just go forever with Ryan's but my problem is is that when I'm actually in the studio and I'm doing my thing like I over. Think it so bad. I'm like is this corny. Like my allowed to say this or I don't know that's my biggest problem. The thing that gets in my way now is that I'm chronic over thinker when it comes to my lyrics. I'm always like is that good enough. Is that you know bad enough in my my mom. We get mad at me for saying that but lately though Yeah things are working are working way better. I wouldn't say I'm definitely lyrical genius by any means. But it's just I mean and the dude and so much of music vibe right like the intro song on a new project I did it all in one day and it was all freestyle off top my head but it was like. It's almost like what it came time for. That next bar did there. Was there in my head like someone was feeding me. Just here's what you do then other times. I'm a little tired or balls deepen a cut and I'm just shredded but like miserable in here like what enough. Fuck them put like thought together. So it's definitely a definitely. The vibes are good. Some of the Best Music I've made is when I have a few buddies in here and we're drinking kind of you know Chilin having time and it's like you just feel good but if you're stressed out trying to make music from that place it's up. Yeah not the best though because I know a lot of a lot of people a lot of years probably or probably interested in something of that and they just think it's not something they could do because they're not natural. You know a lot of people think they need to be a natural to do things like this but like he saw like saying. You're not a natural or anything. Like rhymes stopped. Come to you but you still got to put more thought into it. Then someone who you know you hear stories about like Jay z snoop. And they're just like they've been it just came to them out of nowhere. Oh a hundred percent. I mean it's I don't think I mean even I would say quote unquote your like Your People. That are naturals. That are really good. Something off for it. I mean they're never going to beat the expert unless you put the time in What was that Phil Heath? Clo- he said something like Like like talent beats. Our hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard Always loved that That quote it's like You know there's people that I've been around and there's is that like APPs talking about my guys earlier do often stuff. You know old friends. They're like inspiration like a lot of those dudes have so much talent man. I know bodybuilder dudes. From back home have so much talent. But they don't do anything with it or they're lazier. They're letting you know that the partying getting away in this like I said it's time like this stuff here. Like to get my youtube channel to where it was and to be able to be like self employed and have all this going on like it was. It wasn't easy it was a grind man. It was doubting myself a lot of the time shooting videos with no idea what what was to happen. Or you know editing videos and sitting there on this is terrible. This is awful. I hate this video. Still putting it out you know and putting up with the criticism of like a trying to put out music and then having people shed on it before they've ever even heard a word there shitting on it because you know. I'm running to James Finis. You know like that's the only reason so a lot of it man is 'cause it's easy to thank you reach this point in life where like people come up to me and they'll be like man. I wish I had you had you got it made it. Maybe it's like out in my brain. It's hard to see it that way. 'cause things are never good enough you know and I'm always like You know where I'm at now like you know it's nice to that. Was what was cool about molly over the weekend. I was appreciative of where I was at in life. This is nice. Yeah look what we did but you know but for the most part I'm it's hard to be content you know so maybe that's something to intrinsically that comes with Like longterm success trying to be is that you got to kind of have this thing in you. That some enough's never enough. I remember saying that if I hit one hundred thousand subscribers on youtube it would just like I would just be in this euphoric state forever. You know and I'm coming up on half a million and I'm like that's not enough now. Mike I need a million or I'm Falen you know what I mean so I think you've got to have that mindset with You know I don't think you have to have that necessarily but I think that striving always in everything you're doing is I don't know that's kind of been what keeps me going? I mean there's as I wake up and I'm like the last thing I want to do is sit at. This computer edited video. Shoot a video. Do anything like that know. Just e got to man you know. Yeah there's a lot of stuff that's really hard to Like interpret you know You have nearly five hundred thousand subscribers. You think that it somehow means you're doing a better job if you had a million or if you had two million you know and it somehow it somehow quantifies that you're doing a bad job when you get a shitty comment you know. Somebody says something about you wrapping. You automatically think you're bad wrapping or you automatically You automatically think that you're bad at making videos like that cooking video suck man like you. Burn your whatever and you're like all right man but like a lot of times these things though the way on you but I think trying to figure out why and how much you know. It's it's not an easy thing to do but to try to go over in your head a little bit. You know makes makes a lot of sense like what would a million followers. Do you know when I think about my own instagram and stuff like that. My instagram is not In any real correlation to my business. So you know. Does it really matter a ton for the instagram to continue to grow? It's Kinda like more fun than anything else you know. It doesn't seem like it's Helping rack the dollars up for the company more. It doesn't mean that I don't do. It doesn't mean that. I don't enjoy it. It just means that doesn't make sense for me to spend a lot of time there because maybe maybe my time could be better well spent in other spaces in other places so. I can continue to get my message out in different ways and or helped expand. The company helped the company make more money. Because of the company makes more money the employees can make more money provide more opportunities for other people. get more information out to more fans and provide more value to fans and customers and things like that will let me ask you a question. Then how come. And maybe you're gonNa tell me how you deal with this. How how come we can read a hundred good comments and it doesn't really do much for us but that one bad one is the one that like sticks to You. Like attached to yeah. I think it's just it's just all interpretation. You know again. I think it's a bad interpretation of like this means I'm doing a bad job. You know and somehow you somehow interpreted as being so negative but you could interpret it a bunch of different ways. I mean sometimes people make a comment about me and it makes me laugh because I'm like actually. That was pretty good like they. They fucking burned me like that was something that was legit. You know You know they make fun of you or say something you did was stupid or or whatever but it's really just an interpretation and I think if you take a step back and you were to try to give a comment to a friend That was going through something like that that someone makes them horrific comment them. That really bothered them. You'd probably just the first thing you'd say is like that guy doesn't he doesn't know he doesn't know you like it's. This is absolutely insane. This is absolute ridiculous. Why are you worried about someone across the country? Who doesn't know anything about you? He thinks you're some rich asshole. But like do you feel like you're rich asshole to your friends? Feel that way like is there. Is there a lot more information out there? And how humanity rich astle or whatever the situation would be and there's probably just not and you probably don't feel that way so I think we get ill. We are under the impression that people can make you feel a certain type away and they really can't. It's your interpretation. It goes through a filtering system in your head. And sometimes we're not smart enough or common enough or philosophical enough to filter into a place of like Okay you know that guy thinks I do this just to make money okay. Okay fine sounds okay to me Fox. Well that you know that's That's one thing that I kind of went through this. Like crazy up and down with was It I I let that negativity bother me so much like it was. It took such a toll on me even reading a comment. That wasn't even like bad per se because even like the slightest critique would bother me and I found myself for minute I'd be like addressing comments in the next video then it would lead to more and I went on this like battle with my comment section there for a minute of these few select people. That were like kind of trolls. I had in all right around my hip hop project dropping. So I was like. Y'All think I'm GONNA do this. I got it when people will say something. I'd like clapback and club back and a after dropping the project then what? I've learned the most about like that stuff. Is That A. it's not it's real but it's not real like I can shut all that shit off outside. The Birds Chirpin the polls looking nice. You know I can head down to the gym every time there's friendly and ways says hi and then like you know when you turn the Internet on and you see that bad comment like what is that. Even you know. It's like something we've never really had to deal with as a society where somewhere across the globe can clap. Clap at you for no reason and a lot of it too. I think Joe Rogan says drive-by. Trolling people can swoop in. Leave a comment. And they're out. There is out before you even said anything and then like you let it dwell on you for so long right and then You know they just. They forgot about it. It did some share real quick so I guess if I had to give any advice to anybody out there. Is that a man speaking for someone from experience. I cared so much about that stuff for a long time and as soon as I quit caring about it in court responding to it and quit like making changing who I was because of a few bad comments I get like no negativity now and if I do. I don't see it because I check my comments like right when right when the bill comes in to make sure there wasn't like a hey your dicks out at frame seven you know what I mean like to make sure. There's no crucial mistake committee right right. I mean I'm Kinda just cool with it and I quit. I quit Karen and made it a lot better. Everyone's always going to have an issue with what you say. And then the other thing. That's helped me. A lot is just to understand that No one has ever put out a message that everybody understand the message the same way that you intended. It's actually like physically impossible. No one's ever been able to do it Even stuff that may come from the Bible might be somebody that's like you know. F- religion I don't believe in that. Shit right so it doesn't matter who it comes from where the pope whether it's the president whether it's it could be anybody If if you say something if you say hey man I only eat meat and I feel great. There could be people that that are like dude. Vegetables ain't bad and it's like you want to go in the comments and say I didn't say vegetables were bad. You've fucked right face but it doesn't really do any good because that person is there just being inflammatory you know. They're destroying to get a rise out of you. Somehow maybe the krone viral come in and just cut a swath through those people that would be great comments sections around the world. Clear up as clear up. Traffic's terrible I think this is the making of rhyme rate here rap speaking of Corona virus. What do you guys thoughts on it? Did you see a Lotta masks at the airport or anything? Yeah we did. We saw a lot of that stuff. And it's my understanding is like four hundred. Something people died in Italy from it or something like that so I don't know man I don't know what to think of it. It's seems like it's becoming more and more real all the time. I don't know I've been following it pretty close myself and you know when I see people compared to the flu so the death rate right now I with the numbers we have so if one hundred people get it three point four percent of them die so three point four p. you know three to four people die Hospital at hospitalization rate with severe interactions. It's like a one in five people so You Know I. I don't think it's like going to be the end of the world or anything. I just think that when I see these people tweeden and putting stuff like the flus killed more people say well no shit. The flu is has a foothold. Here this thing is brand new and I. It's it's pretty I don't know I don't know if you've seen any of the grocery store clearings out or anything yet in your area but things are going to get a little wacky for they get They get better. Yeah I think people were just like really just uneducated on a lot of things but this being one of them like the guy next to me on our way back from you know he had a mask on. I think he might've had gloves onto what he has his mask on. Which doesn't do anything other than maybe prevent you from touching your mouth or something as the the drinks and snacks comes through so he he's eating a cookie takes the mask off and he's using his hands to eat the cookie and then yeah yeah let me get a soda and he drinks. Soda. And I'm like like you understand. You just broke the biggest line of defense that you have which is your mouth or biggest vulnerability by eating shit like that mask only makes you look stupid right now. It's just like come on man like try a little bit phasing a bunch of junk. That's all I'm saying. Yeah and that's the other part is like get healthy in general and you'll be fine or at least you'll have a better better Chance of surviving. Actually you said something really cool right there like you. You become a really aware how much you touch your face when you like big about that right so if you have a mask on you're going to touch your face less and then something else. It's like that three point. Four percent. The Corona visors real. It's it's killing a lot of old people but I'm not saying that's a good thing but if you look at the percentages of people that are dying to like fifteen and fifty. It's probably way less if they get it right so I'm not saying we shouldn't worry about it but like more so we should keep up the precautions but a desert beat. Keep your grandparents. Yeah just leave. Eat steak and breathe through your nose and you're fine. Yeah pretty much. There's there's never been a better reason to eat meat and right now own. Where can people find in working people? Find out more about your rap album. That's Joplin well. So if you follow me on Instagram at the Remington James will definitely posting. When it's up it'll be available on itunes spotify glittering anywhere you can listen to music is going to be there so you don't gotta buy it. There's no like exit. It'll be everywhere you can stream that thing. Do whatever you WANNA do really. My goal is just for people to hear that's really about it and then a youtube channel Remington James Fitness. Type that in pop right up. And I'll have some videos probably promote that album for the next month or so so and carnivore content. That's we're locked in on carnival. Carnivores shred come in loads of content and might have to check back in with you. Guys at the end of the day did Would you be able to hit some sort of buttons on your end right there to give a little small sample of the of the music or would it be better just to share a link with us that we can hook to this podcast or something? Well let me see what I'm waiting on the full thing to come back down even know what buttons brothers when you feel more confident about like having completed one hundred percent of product. Maybe you just give us a small sample of. It will throw up thirty seconds of it at the end of this podcast breakdown. Perfect got actually. I know what I'll send you. I'll send you a snippet and I know I got some pronouncements. Yeah because that's my time this drops your album will be out so people can have something to look forward to all right perfect. Hell you thanks. So much for spending some timeless. They really really appreciate it thank you. I ain't no problem fellows. Good conversation And to be honest I watched a lot of your videos coming into this carnivore thing into your advice and implemented it and You know I've watched the doctor before. I did steroids for the first time. The people of my gym had me watched your bigger stronger documentary now. Exceeds AIN'T that bad? I might well. Part of it is kind of bad. Okay but Yeah man a big Fan for real you got you guys rock. Thanks for having me thank you. Thanks a lot calculator man. Cfl US all right sweet man. I was great. Joe Like yeah he mentioned a televangelist thing about starting card award. I mean it's so excited about it but it's great that all those things happened for him and it's like there's GonNa be some fucking person who's like ooh carnivores zealot or whatever but like look at. How many things that fucking help them with? There's no reason you shouldn't just give it up. Give it a try. You know. Especially when he's talking about how much stuff here's able to give up like with the the bad eating habits but the The tobacco whatever. It is the chew stuff. It's even it's even more powerful coming from a guy like him Who had all those addiction? 'cause I don't know what it's like to smoke cigarettes. I don't know what it's like to fuck in be addicted other shit like that right and from person with bows really addicted to that type of stuff to be able to come off because of his diet like crazy I also think you know he was talking about like eating as much as he wanted and gaining a little bit of fluff. I actually what I wonder is in in and I I. I think that counting calories can help you can help you control it faster but I think if he allowed himself to like a literally eat as much as he wanted that he would just Kinda stop he would just stop the behavior because he he'd have more interested in weighing less and being leaner at some point. So you don't really need to necessarily count calories or count. Mak rose to come to that same conclusion of like. Hey like I'm getting down a little too much. You know I'm I'm eating a little too much and I've noticed in the mirror and I noticed on the scale That I'm gaining. So you know for people that are looking for something where they don't have to count they don't have to track. I think Carnivore Diet perfect for that and I think that over a period of time. You're going to notice that you don't necessarily need to do that in order to get Leaner and get in better shape personally for myself I have continued to stay about the same weight but I feel like I'm getting leaner. I noticed like veins in my calves. I noticed my leg the shape of my legs. My legs are kind of like my go-to like indicator when I start seeing more development in the legs you know I'm like Oh shit like it's it's continuing to work. It just happens to be super super slow and by you Andrew. What he thinks going to be happening any other diet changes adding in more meat. Nah just that obviously dropping the carbs down a lot to add more fat in the Diet which I'm pretty excited especially after talking to stand is talking about like you know the fertility libido all that good stuff It you know. It's just a year. When you're so hyper focused on like I just WanNa look good. You kinda like I don't care what else happens like let's just follow this route. But then when he said that I just kind of like what should I don't WanNa like focus on this one thing and all of a sudden it's like I can't get it like that and you don't work yeah I'd fuck and suck so or it wouldn't it wouldn't get anyways yeah exactly? I didn't want to finish. Finish it for. Yeah and then maybe maybe seeing. What's getting a boost in the gym? Maybe energy levels have been down but it could be because my tesla was are going down right now so it's a combination of things but hoping more son as it's getting better weather more stakes more.

Adventures in sleep

"The. What happens to the brain at Nantes today, we hear some intriguing and Tom's bizarre tiles of not as night, terrors and sleepwalking. Jackie began to become aware that she was undertaking. Other behaviors in his sleep as well on one occasion. She greeted her than landlady in the morning and the landlady said to her where we going on your motorbike, one in the morning to which Jackie was completely bewildered, and it became apparent that actually she was riding her Motorbiking asleep. Hello. You'll we all in the mind on our in. I'm Lynn, Malcolm. Doc, the Guy Laroche sinner, is a consultant, neurologist and sleep physician at guy's instant Thomas hospitals in London. He's fascinated by the field of sleep medicine, because he says it describes the various states have our Brian his book, the nocturnal brain illustrates, the neuroscience behind us leak. But before we deal into the secret world of sleep. Why is it that we sleep at all kindness? Sinner. The very short answer is we don't fully understand why we sleep. We know that sleep has probably a variety of purposes. It's important for the regulation of the brain. It's also important for regulation of the body has a broad range of influences on our health, physical, psychological and neurological. We think the one of the very important functions of sleep is in housekeeping of the brain. So we know that there are a number of important chemical and electrical changes within the brain during sleep that have a wide range of influences, including the removal of toxins and metabolites from the brain. But also reconfiguring connections between various neurons in the brain to allow us to learn important for memory for emotional processing, and we know that also sleep is important for the regulation of our psychological health. Safe, you, disrupt sleep. And there remains some uncertainty about whether one stage of sleep is more important than another for this. We know that this can have really quite negative consequences on amoud and all levels of anxiety as well guy listener has encountered and treated, many unusual sleep disorders in his clinical work in London. I though he explains the normal pattern of human sleep. We know that sleep is not a static states is not an on or off situation, and the as we drift off to sleep and stay asleep over the course of the night, we fluctuate through various, what we term stages of sleep sleep in humans tends to be divided into two different overriding stages. So that of Remm sleep or rapid eye movement sleep. This is what historically we referred to as dreaming sleep because it was the stage of sleep during which if you're awoken that is when people would describe these dreams of narrative structure what we really understand as dreams. But we also now know that certain forms of dreaming occur in non REM sleep. So in the stage of sleep during which are always dote move back and forward, we tend to divide nonren- sleep into three stages of sleep. Say light sleep into media, sleep and deep. Sleep. So over the course of the night, what typically tends to happen in adults. At least is that we gradually drift off into the deeper stages of non REM sleep over about half an hour, reaching very deep asleep after about thirty minutes. And then that non Rhames sleep usually lightens before we then go into our first cycle of Remm sleep usually about an hour to an hour in half after sleep onset over the course of the night, we then cycle, probably four or five times, usually. And as we go through the night, the stages of deep sleep tend to lessen in terms of depth, and the amount of Remm sleep of rapid eye movements leap tend to extend so we do the majority of deep non REM sleep in the first half of the night, and the majority of our Remm or what used to be termed dreaming, sleep in the latter half of the night, most of Amelia, at least with the concept of sleep walking, but one of guy listeners. Patients takes walking in one sleep to another level completely. Jackie always knew she was asleep. Woah craven in childhood. She was brought up in Canada and on going Kemp's. Her tent mates would be woken up by growling thinking that there was a bear outside the tent, only to find that it was Jackie growling in her sleep. But as she grew older, she began to become aware that she was undertaking. Other behaviors in his sleep as well on one occasion. She greeted her then landlady in the morning and the landlady center where were you going on your motorbike, one in the morning? To which Jackie was completely bewildered, because she had no recollection of doing anything and it became apparent that actually she was riding her Motorbiking asleep. She sold that motorbike very quickly because of concerns about what she might do to self but later on in life, and Jackie is now in her seventies, she has been witnessed by her. Neighbors driving up and down the seafront in her car in the middle of the night. Once again without any recollection at all. And so it appears that Jackie is actually driving, or riding a motorbike in her sleep really very complex behaviors and very dangerous, potentially very dangerous. Indeed. You mentioned that this is in non rim sleep. So it's one of the categories of non rim Paris. Som- Neha, and their offers to, like sleep talking. And eighteen one sleep just tell me little bit about what happens there in sleep eating, what tends to happen is that people will often get up in the middle of the night. Once again. With very limited or no recollection at all and will eat in an unregulated fashion. So there have been case reports of people drinking bleach or eating raw meat, or foodstuffs that they would not in any way, touch during the day. The patient the I describe in the book, dawn on some occasions as eaten entire blocks of lard, or has found the when he's come down in the morning that he has taken his pet parrots birdseed coveted in salad dressing and eat in that on one occasion. He woke up. He was spooning grounds of coffee into his mouth and was woken up by the very bitter taste. So these can be really quite extreme behaviors, and is it the case in these sorts of behaviors that sleep and wake or occurring at the same time. Certainly that's our current understanding of these phenomena. We used to think of sleep being a global brain state. So the whole of the brain was in a particular. Stage of sleep. But what we now understand, and we have evidence for this from scans or electrodes implanted into people's brains during these events that actually these behaviors arise when different parts. The brainer in different stages of sleep or indeed, wake. So what is a common feature of these kinds of behaviors is that the parts of the brain that are responsible for rational, thinking or planning, or personality often remain in very deep sleep when one looks at it in terms of the electrical activity of the frontal lobes, which is where these kinds of neurological functions reside, as well as the hippocampus, which is probably where the vast majority of our memory resides, whereas other parts of the brain like those parts that are responsible for movement, or for vision, demonstrate waking behavior. So it's actually a disjointed brain that results in these kinds of behaviors. And is there an effective treatment for people who have these talks of disorders where we think that in those one to two percent of adults who carry on sleep walking or exhibiting these kinds of behaviors beyond their adolescence? There is probably an underlying genetic predisposition to this brain state, this disjointed brain state. So some of it sits intrinsically within our genes. But we know that there are a variety of factors that can increase the risk of these kinds of behaviors arising essentially anything that disrupts deep what we term slow wave sleep. So things like sleep apnea snoring a condition that causes kicking night. Cool periodic limb movement, disorder or sometimes sleep deprivation itself can generate these kinds of behaviors because it increases the drive to remain in very deep sleep. Whereas normally somebody might wake up fully if they're deep sleep is disrupted. In individuals who seem to be very sleep deprived. That doesn't tend to occur and therefore it makes these sorts of behaviors more likely to arise. So one of the very effective treatment is to treat some of the behavioral issues that might be resulting in sleep restriction to deal with daytime stress or anxiety, which may disrupt sleep as well and to deal with some of these other sleep disorders that may impact on the quality of sleep. The individuals are having we also know that there are some drug treatments that do reduce the likelihood of these events from arising and for extreme sleep walkers, those people who are putting themselves or their partners at risk than we do use drugs. And certainly the kinds of behaviors often resulting people getting referred to our clinic or often those result in danger. So things like jumping out of first or second story window sexual behavior that can often resulting people getting into. Terrible trouble or in Jackie's case driving a car in the middle of the night. With all in the mind on our in. I'm Lynn, Malcolm. I'm with neurologist. Dr guy lash, sinner, from the sleep disorder center at the guys and sent Thomas hospitals in London. Those disorders guy listener with Justice scribe ING occur during the non rapid. I'm movement sleep face. But there are other disorders which happened during the rim or dream phase. One of guys patients, John has a rim sleep disorder which means he acts out his dreams, so John when he enters into Remm sleep often experiences, very vivid. And very frightening nightmares. Usually have been chased of being attacked often by a large animal, and during these dreams or nightmares. He often acts out history m-. So he will lash out or kick out or grab his wife or swear in the middle of the night. Now normally in Remm sleep, we are largely completely paralyzed. There are areas of the brain in the brain stem that mediate paralysis of all our skeletal muscle. Nls the only muscles that tend to continue working the muscles that move are always back and forth and hence the term rapid movement sleep. And also, the muscles that allow us to breathe for various reasons, but we know that in some individuals these mechanisms that generate paralysis of the muscles, stop working properly. And it's at that point, that people can then start acting out their dreams you will point out that bed partners. They're often really important witnesses when it comes to sleep disorders, and just tell us about the story of Robert and Linda. Robot is a patient, who originally came to me, having seen number of different, clinicians, including psychiatrist because his partner was reporting him, saying some very unusual deeply worrying things that he was saying in the middle of the night, it was often revolving around, having affairs with ex partners. And then over the course of a number of months, the content of his sleep talking became much darker, it revolved around sexual abuse of friends and family and sexual practices. He had been to see as I said, a couple of other, clinicians, who could find no clear calls for it. And when we brought him in for sleep study, we actually witnessed very little, which made him deeply suspicious, and he went and bought some voice activated recording equipment only to discover that actually when she was waking him up screaming at him that he was saying absolutely nothing at all. So. So really an example of how vulnerable we are when we sleep that we take what people say to us as the reality whereas that may also be the case. Some people have unmoving sleep related experiences, which actually occur while they're awake. They called heap nickel, geek, hallucinations. It's important to stress that hip, get clues, nations are not necessarily pathological by which, I mean, that they do sometimes occur in individuals who don't have any other problems with their sleep. But what we know is that these kinds of conditions often occur much more frequently in disorders, like narcolepsy where the boundaries between the various stages of sleep, a blurred. What people with hip negate, police nations often experiences as drifting off to sleep or sometimes as they wake up, they feel fully awake, but they often see things in the room off. No dark figure standing over the edge of the bed, or animals in the room. And this is occasionally associated with a condition called sleep paralysis where people are completely paralyzed during full wake from this. So you can imagine how terrifying that is to feel completely paralyzed into feel that there is a stranger in the room standing over you what we understand these phenomena to represent his once again, the blurring various stages of sleep, or wake that these phenomena arise when there is a blurring of the boundaries between rapid eye movement or dreaming sleep and wakefulness, the hallucinations that we experience really represents some of the dream Mente shin that dreaming process kicking in walls with fully awake. And if those aspects of red. I'm like paralysis, also kick in at the same time that that results in sleep paralysis. Could be very frightening. It is potentially terrifying. Another experienced people have it's called ketchup lake see, and it's very unusual, because it occurs often during the day and it's triggered by emotion. For example, laughter. Catta plex is a phenomenon that we think to be almost exclusive not totally exclusive, but almost exclusive to this condition called narcolepsy, which is really the purest neurological sleep disorder that we have identified narcolepsy results from the damage to a very small number of neurons, deepen the brain, an area called the lateral hypothalamus. And we think that this damage is really as a result of autoimmune attack that people who have an underlying genetic predisposition, who are exposed to particular virus, or other pathogen in the environment, trigger their immune system to attack this very small part of the brain. And this part of the brain has a fundamental importance to regulating our sleep it regulates our ability to stay awake. And also regulates the switch between Remm sleep non REM sleep. So in individuals who lose this. Trigger or lose this area of the brain. They find it very difficult to stay awake during the day because the wakefulness is not stable, they often have really quite dramatic sleep attacks. And I've seen people falling asleep, whilst playing football or even while having sex, for example, but it also results in prominent sleep paralysis, and hallucinations, we've talked about, because they go into dreaming sleep darkly from wakefulness, which is something that does not normally happen in normal individuals. But as part of narcolepsy, we also see this condition called Catta plex, which is were usually very strong, emotion often as you say, laughter, or internal feeling of mirth so people who are about to deliver the punchline of a joke. It results in a sudden switching on of these mechanisms of paralysis, that we normally associate with Remm sleep during wakefulness an often results in people collapsing completely to the ground, although sometimes it can result in more subtle. Features. Like, for example, losing the ability to maintain your head up rights or losing the ability to smile or to use your expression muscles. You'll facial muscles of expression. Now why this happened in Catholic? See, we're not fully clear. But what we think is happening is that there are projections from the area of the brain, that is damaged in narcolepsy, down to the brain stem that result in some sort of this regulation, abnormal processing of signals the normally shouldn't result in this phenomenon from arising. We know the going week. The news is, is actually a physiological phenomenon that people often when they laugh feel a little bit weak, the knees indeed when we study this electrically, we can see strong emotion triggers subtle changes in the muscular, but in narcolepsy, this has dramatically amplified and results in this condition called Cadillacs one of the mysteries. Normal sleep that most of its wonder. About is why we dream. Listener admits that this hasn't been solved yet, but he's gained some interesting insights into the role of dreaming. So I remember as a medical student, one of the theories that was around was that dreaming was essentially a process during which we pruned connections that were made during the day that were not of importance, and that the act of dreaming was really what we term an epi phenomenon of that process. So basically the meaningless garbage that was put together boil brains, as these pruning, exercises were undertaken, but it's quite clear that that's not the case. You know, if you look at people who have post traumatic stress disorder one of the features of PTSD is that people often have a recurring nightmare that is related to those specific experiences, and it's very difficult for to say that this is just a meaningless epi phenomenon that this is really just a case of the, the garbage that is churned out as a result of a neuro physiological process. That's. Happening in our brains are still a number of theories, none of which have been fully clarified about the theory of dreaming. We know that certainly when one looks at REM sleep, the amount of rim sleep, we undertake in the womb or if babies are born prematurely is absolutely huge as about eight hours per twenty four hours and that drops off over the course of our lifetime. So if one says, will, you know, these babies are dreaming during REM sleep. What is it that they're dreaming of we have absolutely no idea? And so it's likely that this stage of sleep, perhaps, has different functions at different stages of life in infancy in the womb, it's probably related to the development, the early development of consciousness, later on in life is probably related to learning. It's related to emotional processing. So one of the theories is that Joran dreaming sleep. And actually in rim. If one looks the electrical activity of the brain, it looks rather similar to wakefulness. So the brain is almost in a awake state, but it's is located at from its environment. And if one looks at that brain state chemically, some of the chemicals that Russo stated with wakefulness rashly the same or if not a higher levels. But one of the differences is the adrenaline and noradrenaline are significantly lower levels during creaming sleep. And one of the hypotheses is that dreaming sleep is a way of trying to consolidate memories that are associated with strong, emotional components and trying to remove that emotional component from those memories, which is perhaps why people with PTSD often have that recurrent nightmare in that process of cleansing those memories from their emotional content is never completed. And so the emotional content remains associated with that memory. So it makes you. Two to about what the different impacts are of disrupting the different phases of sleep. Is it most serious to disrupt rim sleep? Phase will I think this is a really rather controversial area. There have been some studies that showed that, if you destruct REM sleep than that can have important effects on your mood, but actually in the past when certain older antidepressants, we used which completely abolished, REM sleep, this did not appear to have any outward consequences. Certainly, we know that the disruption of deep sleep is much more associated with that feeling of unrefreshing -ment or feeling extremely tired during the day. And in the short term, it appears that deep slow wave sleep stage. Three non REM sleep is perhaps more important because if we're sleep deprived the brain prioritizes nonren- sleep over 'em sleep, if on disrupts nonren-. Sleep than we know that they're important physiological changes that occur as well. So in terms of blood pressure in terms of glucose tolerance, so generating a pre diabetic state, so at least in the short, we know that slow wave sleep stage. Three sleep is perhaps, more fundamentally important than Rhames leap? Value of studying people with these extreme sleep disorders. So what we understand by looking at these patients with extreme sleep disorders is two things. We understand about the processes of sleep and what can go wrong. So we now understand that. For example, the brain can remain in different stages of sleep at the same time. We understand that actually when one looks at sleep deprived people. They're all suggestions, that very small parts of the brain are actually constantly going into sleep what we term local sleep. And this may underlie why, for example, people who are sleep deprived who are not getting enough sleep might not function quite as well from a cognitive perspective because very small areas of the brain of Habsburg into sleep, a little bit more. We also understand from looking at these people with extreme sleep disorders. The if wants us. Stains damage in a particular part of the brain that results in changes to how we sleep. And so we get some insights into how the normal process of sleep is regulated by the different stages of the brain, essentially, they give us a window into normal sleep, and this is not just in sleep medicine. This is paralleled across the whole of neurology where huge insights into the normal functioning of the brain have resulted from understanding people whose brains damaged by looking at what the manifestations of damage to various parts of the brain resulting. We then get insights into normal functioning of the brain and in the case of sleep medicine into normal sleep. What would you say the remaining most important questions about sleep that a yet to be answered by science? I think the big questions that I mean, whatever you here we still are a long way from answering all the questions that you started off with which is why do we sleep. And why do we dream? I think we still haven't really fully understood, essentially, what we are spending a third of our lives doing. It's amazing. It's the, the same as saying why do we eat? Or why do we drink if you were to say, I don't know that would be completely implausible. But yet, we still are quite far away from understanding this incredibly mysterious process that all of us spend a great deal of time doing what are they came messages. You'd like to get across in terms at sleep. And that theme portent of sleep. Well, I think there's no getting around the fact that people are much more aware of the importance of sleep, every aspect of their lives. But there is a balance to be had a lot of people have read texts or heard radio programs like this or watch TV programs that really tend to dramatically state, the, if you sleep poorly, you are putting yourself great risk in terms of cardiovascular disease in terms of high blood pressure in terms of stroke and outside this disease. And I think there's no getting away from the fact that we understand now that yes, sleep disruption, and sleep deprivation, do increase that risk. But I think it's important to remember that. There is a significant difference between the subjective experience of sleep and the objective measure of sleep, and that many people who don't sleep, particularly well or have. Insomnia. Actually, when they're sleep is studied, that sleep is not that bad. And so, the situation, the see fairly frequently is individuals who have read or heard about these associations and become incredibly preoccupied obsessed by the fact that they're not sleeping, well, which often creates a further problem, because it's stress anxiety about sleep that then sometimes generates severe insomnia. So I think the crucial messages if you are going to sleep at the same time in waking up at the same time on a regular basis, and you wake up feeling generally refreshed, and you are ready to go to sleep at the same time the following night, then that probably suggests that you're getting enough, good quality sleep for yourself. This concept of seven to eight hour sleep nights, I think is correct from a population basis. But what we know is that a huge individual differences often determined by genetics. But also. Termine by other factors in sleep, the influence, how much sleep you as an individual need and rather than being guided by an absolute number, you need to be guided by how you feel.

Take Two: EASTER BUNNY KILL KILL with JOE BORELLI & JORDAN McLAUGHLIN

"How this program is a proud member of you need voice unified unique voices learn more at you needles pods doc hello my name's Patrick and I must scream queen. I'm scream queen and celery. ooh. Hello again my dreamers. There's and welcome to another episode of Queens. The podcast were horror gets gay two nights. We we're having a belated Easter Party and to celebrate. We're going to do it in the most blasphemous way possible due to a request from Patriot on yet. This is the patron requested I go back and revisit movie that I cover where we back in two thousand and eleven a little pseudo grind house slasher called Easter Bunny Kill Kill will and joining me are two very special guests first of all returning gas. We haven't heard from in a long time Mr Joe Borelli from the creature cast and also the developer of that game that we'd be talking about so much. Don't get stat Jordan McLaughlin but before we go any further please allow me to introduce is myself. My Name is Patrick Walsh and twice a month every month. I'm here and I am your guide to the weird and wonderful world of horror movies but you're going to have to see them. Through my very very gay. Little is just how it is. There's always a catch isn't isn't there always a caveat so what's been going on and scream queens headquarters well. The big thing is my old. PC died. I died horrible flaming smokey death so I've got a new PC so I'm still in the process of transferring files over and stuff so I don't have all the bells and whistles of ready that normally have for this episode but I figured all still turns out fine. It's just a little extra work but you know hey a little extra love for you guys. I don't mind I don't mind. The other thing I came to realize is that I think I need to change my release date for these episodes. I've been releasing episodes for you on the second and Fourth Fridays of the month but I think we're GONNA have to switch that to the second fourth Sundays of the month for a while because that seems to be when things keep coming out just whatever lifestyle has been thrown at me just seems to make these Friday dates for the past few weeks absolutely impossible so let's just try it for Sundays for for a while. Please adjust your schedules and stop yelling at me. I'm trying my best. Nobody's yelled at me for goodness gracious. Thank goodness gracious nobody. PC ME.

Make the world's a somehow better place fight against whatever oppression or nastiness just that's nice humanitarian work on whatever scale that means it could be big it could be small but I want to start recognizing the good in people out there and so this guy well he's been on the show. He's a movie director and you remember when Jordan Peele made an announcement that he wasn't casting any white people in his lead roles anytime in the foreseeable future and the Internet went crazy. This guy posted that he agreed with that and the amount of abuse that this poor man took was astounding nick forward something for those of you who are not in the industry. You don't know that like racism. Sexism ageism is built into it. It's built into the casting thing process in no other industry. Can you turn somebody away for being too old or too short to black or too white or whatever to just not whatever enough or just you don't look you can't. You may be the best for the role but you're not pretty enough. You can't do that in any other industry but you can do it in the performing arts because it's a visual thing and uh you know. I agree Jordan. Peele if he's he can cast his movies any damn well he where he pleases and that is not a racist statement. It's his work. They don't like it. Make your own movies. That's what people have said to him. All this time and this guy man he stood up and took an incredible amount of abuse and just handled it with aplomb and dignity at actually got some people to understand what he was saying and for that let you Nicholas Hunt. You're this game Clinton wake. You'll remember Nicholas. He was on the show. Maybe two summers ago he was is on with his Co Star. What will the coast stars of one of his upcoming movies largely mayor they were talking about God what was the name of that movie deadly lessons the TV movie deadly lessons. They were on and yeah yeah they were talking about that and he's got a movie coming out called safe place and he's a fabulous guy as now the tradition. If you win scream queen the week not only do you get it the ARA. I'm going to ask to support this person not financially. I just say Nicholas. What's it 'cause it means a lot to and he without hesitating hesitating immediately said Oh I want people to make donations if they can Tamarisk Harte's joyful heart foundation which is for survivors of sexual assault and abuse and domestic violence so support scream queen of the week I will have information in the show notes on how to get to joyful for heart and give what you can five dollars. Whatever just little something something for Mr Nick Support Your Queen Girls Hey. Hey and I think that's really all it's been going on here. Things have been very quiet. Easter was boring smoot. You didn't show up in a bunny mask with power tools to massacre me. So what else do I have to report. The big thing. Is that my my computer blew up and this is what goes on okay. My life is boring now. What can I ask what what can I do. Oh the other things that preparations for the October countdown Halloween pastathon are underway. I am seeking volunteers of all kinds. If you want to be involved in any way please drop me a line at Crewe through at scream queens dot com put pot on in the subject line and just let me know and I'm looking for all kinds of people with all kinds of skills. Uh when I get my shit together someday we'll be talking more about that but still still committees are forming committees are forming and you don't want to be left out because there's going to be the biggest and best ever so enough of my babbling. It's time to move onto the main segment of the show in which we absolutely ruin the most holy of Holy Holidays with Easter Easter Bunny Kale Kale hippy hoppy. Hey today today's Easter in this house. Seven people will die at the hands of a mask maniac nickless. He's very special. He's not retarded. The system thorough mongoloid son smuggled butter boy with you specify uh-huh uh-huh aw look we need to calm the talk down everybody calm down its eastern fucking. Halloween so what better way to celebrate a break Easter weekend with something completely blasphemous with the movie with something to offend just about everyone and to what fun is doing that by yourself right so I have not one but the two fabulous guests with me one is brand new fresh meat and the other one is he may still be straight. Buddy's still always going to be my day ladies and gentlemen boys and girls. How's my GNC's wherever you may be Mr Joe Borelli. Welcome back Joe. Thank you. How have you been doing. I'm fine. It's been years Joe. I know God. It's been way too long. It's sits follows Joe. Has It really been since it follows a high. If you it follows demon was persistence you are live forever Na. Oh we gotta we gotTa make that. There's gotta be some fresh. I'm sure there is is bad. Hey that's not not you're not here alone Joe. We have somebody else now. Those of you who remember Flam did a plug well yeah did plug for this guy's game is fabulous the game and I was playing Imerese crisis and a gut as kicked out. That's how much fun we were having ladies and gentlemen boys and girls man present to you the creator of the Card Card Game Don't get Stanton Mr Jordan mcglaughlin. No you're very welcome Jordan very very we welcome now since the fresh meat. Could you tell everybody in your own words about. Don't get stabbed because we heard about it from flames mouth. We want to hear about from yours. So who don't stab is a game that I made that currently up on kickstarter and actually just got funded so it's definitely going to get made so in this. You actually are like one person gets to be the killer and the rest are victim social killer. You try to kill everybody after victims. You have to try to escape. I really I'm a big fan of any like wargame. Horror themed board game anything like that I. I played camp grizzly recently. It's Super Fun so I look forward to trying. This started order the Nice thing about this game Joe. It's over and ten fifteen minutes or fast up. Thank God uh-huh you get to murder all your friends and loved ones in seconds and I don't get to go to jail which is pretty much perfect. Well you probably will be for something else and all that entirely clearly unrelated because it's you wonder about jober. Where have you been for a while because he had some ups and downs you had a show for a while. Oh Yeah Yeah I did. I had a podcast and then then by dude that I was working on it with. He had to go knock up a girl so now they're having babies into a baby shit Jordan. These heterosexuals could die I. I know it's a sexual community so but I've still been. I've been working a lot lately. I have the number one of the biggest writing groups in a New York City Gordon meet up dot com. I'm still an active member of the Horror Writers Association actually write a monthly column for their in house newsletter about comic books. Looks in horror called into md by long boxes. I've had a couple of publications most recently in the corporate -nology and I work right. How's freelance writer for I love Halloween. Dot Net so I'm staying spooky as best. I can excellent excellent making the world a crepe place. We applaud applaud. We applaud that too. I deeply appreciate my goodness. Okay so now that we're talking about. Today is actually one I covered before I really liked. The first year of the show bought one of my patrons. What am I super screamer patrons. who was at that level where they get to pick the show wanted me to do it again? They wanted me to ruin Easter for everybody self banks to Jelly Belly Kelly who was ruined the show three times now by the way thank you Joey village. He's got a wonderful tasted awful films. We are doing this little trait called Easter bunny. Kill Kill Jordan since you do. We have a little game team that I like to play with my guests Jordan. I need you to give you to give us a nice tight thirty-second back of the DVD cover plot summary Easter bunny kill kill sell it to my audience. In thirty seconds or less clock starts. That's now so there is a very bad man who likes to shoot people who is trying to manipulate this woman move into her house and things turn really bad on Easter a guy in eastern mass killing everybody well done good. The first time about most people choke freak out INC plugs roll done yeah. I don't think Joe liked it. He texted me earlier today. He said the director is not going to be honest. The yeah I just I had to be sure you know you. You got to roots deepen scene. I gotTa make sure I'm not gonNA come on and be like yeah. so whatever insane insane asylum made this film they should either up or cut the dose to be perfectly honest. I kind of liked this one. I know I I know. It's very very distinctive. Yes yes and we'll get into some of that as well yeah and really what better way to spending holy Thursday. Oh absolutely look I would out a watch this over any like like Hugh kids cartoon any day of the week. This is how I spend my Easter's yes and also the reason why pick joe to be on this show not that. I just miss him. Joe Has a bunny thing. Jordan does have a bunny thing Joel on a bunny thing. Joe Is really crazy about bunnies. Look it's not like it's a thing thing. Indo God knows what personally it's actually funny. 'cause I have a how deep is your love Joe Deep. It's taking part three on on silent. The background scene where the shop owner finds the rabbit in the in the lettuce report gets it. Oh Yeah Oh yes but no so I I had a pet rabbit for years loved and Death Goumba Rad bought a you know they die is at ten to do but I got to know just a whole a lot about our little lag amorphous friends and kind of became my mascot animal if we're going to have a banner liking game of thrones that bribe you mine. It's fitting fitting for your job better off. You know this Jordan. You probably don't because you don't know Joe but Joe poops every time he moves radio well. Robin whenever frightened I will turn my back and show my asked anyone. I just got big big defensive mechanisms in all the world will be your enemy prince with a thousand enemies well done sir. It's been a year of the rabbit for movies. Now it sure has what was that the favourite was that what it was something like that or the one with the Queen and that just won the Oscar. Yes yes yes yes. That's the one we got that movie. We got us. It's the year the bunny I figured this my rounded out for Joe but apparently not I mean look. It's like I. I am fully confident about what this this movie was but I had a good time watching it well. That's the important thing because I always hate it when my guest like I hate you and hope you die Patrick. Watch Jordan's very quiet succeeded because I there's one scene where it was happening. I'm like I really regret watching that and I hope it doesn't go where I think it's going out for the second was about the eight you would see which seen the scene with the creepy pedophile coming down the hallway that that that was pure trauma. Roma right there that way as the most terrifying part of the film okay so what's going on here so basically what's happening. It's the story of his little boy named Nicholas Bright Nicolas loves eastern was hard and so but the thing is he's got cerebral palsy and you know he stunted mentally stuck at like five or six years old or something like that and get his mom's new boyfriend while he gets to take care of him on Easter but thing is mom's new boyfriend is not a nice guy has all kinds of awful things planned for Nicholas and a very inappropriate Easter party before possibly the most appropriate to wherever I'm not really sure legit. Nicholas has a Guardian Angel Yeah as the Easter Bunny himself shows up to kill everybody. That's threatening him it. It's not that much of a jump. Matt rabbits can mean gene little fuckers on watership down. Thank you exactly on Damn Right. I'm just picturing on the picturing Jordan watching that saying that were just part of his new game police Dan Patrick. I extort that probably double the money on five times it. Nobody's a loser. Everyone wins Patrick Patrick Back back now this movie it's strives and I think she's pretty well. A good grind house field yeah. It's goes goes out of his way to be offensive not full trauma level. You know it's not all poop jokes and like flapping pussy jokes or anything like that. It's just it's just dislike. Whatever's GONNA get understands like inherit is a fire movie. It's trigger warning features. Oh Yeah Yeah and the thing is I saw the reason I got to this movie. There was I covered this other movie called. Someone's knocking at the door looked it up on. I'm Debbie this whole cast all of that movie was in this movie another movie called Silent Night Zombie Yeah so I couldn't help but look the IMDB on some of these guys this a few that looked maddeningly familiar. There's a couple of names that you feel like you watch these movies and I certainly add that. You may recognize nice them from something else but yeah. I'd never seen silent night Zombie night and it's that one's not good get the fuck Outta here. It's boring. It's actually boring. It's this is boring okay. That's the ultimate cynic. Ryan has been the other one. It's basically a ghost slasher movie. These college kids drop acid or something some try some weird drug and find themselves being stalked by this killer ghost. I'm in killer ghosts murder weapon what is eighteen inch beer campinas no and it's not a comedy. It's grim grim surreal and really terrifying save a whole cast getting the death men women. I mean everybody is it called Spirit camp now. Ohno God movies terrible. I truly dread seeing the movie. You consider consider terrible. How want okay all right Jordan. If you have a standard slasher movie a cheerleader camp. What do you think fun Campy Yeah Yeah. It probably can't be it's probably got a couple of random boobs thrown in like my goal formula when you find out all the cheerleaders are being raped after they're dead yeah that that's not fun anymore but it's still like isn't as fun no no. That's not okay talk about that but we're talking about this movie. Yes so the what did what did we think about Nicholas and his performance. This is one of those things that I think is going to hinge a lot of people on the movie quite a bit yet. I spent half the I'm just either cringing or like wondering like it might just being over judgmental got mental. Joe Bunny just described the way my family views every Thanksgiving when I get Joe if you wouldn't do that stuff with Turkey that you to. There's someone's gotta stuff it now but normally it's the Turkey that get stuff but we can't have Joe Duck and that's just weird yeah you know what anything give me on the Super Bowl TV joking CEO yeah the thing is I find the performance hard to watch yep. I used to teach special Ed. Oh God I gotta here okay. What's your take on the whole performance the whole thing he's actually it's not being played for laughs. APPS and he's actually fairly accurate higher functioning cerebral palsy kids in my lower functioning. He's kind of right in the middle of them really like even the most more on the scene where we okay. We'll get into the plot and a bit but the boy loves. Easter finds himself with a bunny that he got mysterious circumstances circumstances yeah and there's a lot of with talking with the bunny and Ben just like having fun with the bunny and that's fine but there's a scene where he plays his dad's favorite song for the bunny. Oh Yeah and he's dancing along with vogue longtime. Dad Likes that song. That's that's like those murder music. No one's Dad's favorite song just happened to be public. Domain Jordan gets it. We can afford this one but I was like yeah. This is really uncomfortable but there was it. This is what our class parties look like. It's not wrong. It's not off and it's not being played for laughs like okay. Just look at this kid and these kids never played for a joke and yeah he's the object of. I mean you have to like them because otherwise than the movie doesn't Work Dr Yeah if you want the kid to die. There's a problem yeah or be raped things that are that are going to happen. Nicholas to Caesar but but the thing is I know you're supposed to hate him but I really kind of Ram really diverse boyfriend. Did the the former's having a who oh yeah he's a he. He goes in feet first like e. E Can't give him credit for. You can't say that he underperformed undersold. He went in 'cause. This guy is a scum bag. Boys has the movie open blows that Dude's head off in the armed robbery yeah in the body with the stills the money and it feels like a chocolate rabbit hobby chocolate rabbit. He's about to leave. The cashier is your says. Oh thank God and then keep turns around and with all the righteousness of like the Reddit a worm he says God's did boom. Oh and now you've gone from Robert Homicides because he had after making himself the gun making him put the gun in his mouth. Yeah that goes on forever to mouth. Look him out rape images APP to take forever. Joe's law number fifty seven. Can I say man had subjected myself to Reno right from the there's no surprise Triesman you know that this guy's a scumbag but he's dating Nicholas's mom nurse cleavage as I like to Cook Jesus Christ lovely woman beautiful woman not the best actress and for a mom character like her tits. Roy's Bang yes like the counter was going out of the way to go right down the Dakota Taj right down indeed as if it's an exploitation bill. I know L. but you know even like she's being like really maternal having their son and we're still down our business really fucked up also not now that I gotta take out the garbage. Hold hold on. I gotTa pick this up again not for nothing. I don't think nurses of worn this kind of outfit. Since the nineteen fifties I have a frequent guest in show Brian Norton who's filmmaker and he didn't start Hartfield historian. He knows everything about everything. He's like. Nurses have not one paper hats outside yeah since since nineteen forty five. I mean it ain't wrong like I see her. In that is like a real job is tells her that she's a nurse and then goes off in like you. You know gets other work done on the side. I I do believe that. She was a nurse. She knew how to take care of people. As she sure did didn't she. It sure did she should and so you know. Ram Is all sweet as pie with her. Whenever her back is turned he's ripping into Nicholas. It's all appalling pauling like he's not even trying to be nice to this kid. Yeah I mean he drives the art. World like two minutes of the house like came second in the house. It says our retarded is eight. Lord granted this was made at a time when that movie was not as taboo was award was not as taboo is now but still led with that man mance I has it really been that like recent that the concept of not calling mentally disabled people you know retarded is because like like I feel this isn't that old of a movie lay was always bad but in recent years I just found that it's become an excusably bet yeah. You know I mean fuck. Man Like people got enough problems. I don't need to yeah ee. I agree I agree. What was I going to say that you liked Remington too. You know you know what I fell in love with him. His Little Song here's the hookers and cocaine now he sold it because they went on and on Mike I like this. I was thinking that around the kitchen for the rest of the Yes uh-huh singing. Cvs Excuse me what I can. I find the hookers I could gain. Hookers Indebted Medley. You need to cover bands like on fiber or something to do a cover. They can put at the end of the show. I'll get right on that. It's Funnier to techies. It's funny. It's funny in our security. You'll get it and it'd be like Ah shut all the joy out of that five or what surprise. I can't believe I didn't get my money's anyway back to the movie lease as we learn as that Niklas Dad's dead when they die boys on Easter. Damn right he did Damon every year Nicholas hoping that he's GonNa come back act and he's been obsessed with the Easter bunny ever since borders he loved the Easter Bunny and Oh boy does he get on Nicholas Bat side. What is Nikola. What does what does remm tell Nicolas when he finds the blood talk he tells them that the a bad boy ripped off the Easter bunny ears don't give a kid Easter candy that you stole from crime scene because it's probably going to have blood on it. Let's see it's got blood all over for it because the Easter Bunny see he took it away from very naughty boy. Where did the blood come from the bad boy when he ripped clean thought. Was that first of all nice giving a kid chocolate with blood off especially because he was going to give that to mindy. I think yes check that yeah. No he don't care they don't care there. He waved his hands in the air to but I think he he thought he had her pegged pretty early on as someone who's just like. Oh man it's it's a guy that's willing to date me with my son. I think I'll just tolerate whatever weirdness he brings in. Yeah Yeah and you don't Talk Shit about the Easter Bunny no gotten gotten to Nicholas and you know big. City gets mecom down. It's like we'll just take out the trash and of course he has to bend over the trash and show her tits and while he's out there what happens when he goes to take out the trash gusts Jordan Donnie so he's picking up trash and homeless guy comes up search asking Cam for Cam which is normally till he offers Nicholas Eastern or just a bunny that he has a cage. He's rolling around on a cart. Yes so yeah he just gives the bunny to Nicolas takes now all of a sudden. The boy who loves eastern has his very on Easter Buddy. Oh Oh boy Nicholas could not be happier. Oh yeah except he's got. Rita's a checkered giant rabbit because he's a big hefty fucker with his distinctive ears. Here's an sloping nose so it's a very mild very domesticated. Read nerd like rabbits spotting what I liked about that rabbit Jordan. I'm GonNa tell you right now. What I liked about that Rab. Is that rabbit had smokey. I'd eat it had some drag. Queen Makeup bunnies can be nothing less than fabulous a house like girls look at him. Go and can I tell you for a while where I thought about the homicide okay I might have had some wine was watching the proper fraser. Oh God I'm like was he Jesus. You know what that would have been a hell of a twist did Jesus. Just come into the movie would have better twist because here's the thing boys here's the thing I started going on. The thing is this movie is basic slasher. It does have a decent whodunit element element going on some thinking okay good. I mean does it though excuse me I'm talking. I WanNa tell you where my wind took me all right. Okay so as this giant bunny shows up murdering everybody in the House of power tools all these bad people here. Nicholas take advantage of the family in some way. I'm thinking it can't be Nicholas disappeared because unless he's been faking cerebral palsy the whole time that's not a person with cerebral palsy and is much too tall. I'm thinking maybe the dad come back and Joe this for you. This is where my mind went after that. I'm like what if it's it's the bunny. Oh Yeah I bought that to what if that actually I actually did have that like what if the Bunnies Guardian Angel what if that's really the Easter Bunny yeah I would have been like a demon bunny that liked possessed. Nicholas was what led him to go around. Killing people really wanted the Deland bunny disappointed at the end of the I. I'm always going to go for a demon rabbit or deer filmmaker sure well. That's what we're dealing with. Gritty realism here to dance. Keep it down and dirty Nicholas. It has this buddy and he loved the bunny but thinks he has to keep a bunny a secret because it's afraid he doesn't want to tell us mom yeah. He's afraid he's going to get rid of it and east whatever he's just keeping it. A secret until ren finds out about it and now remm has what's the word. I'm looking for not leverage mail. I'll take that yeah because he knows what the buddies now. You have to behave yourself and do whatever it is I tell you or I'm going to snap that little fucking buddies neck aw fuck. It's just usually fucking shit. Stay now. Listen ectomy believe it or not. I like your mom and and I love this place whole hell of a lot what I don't like his are smelly little retarded fucking brand of a kid. Things are going to change around. My mom shot off up when I'm talking to you. That's rule number one remember to hugh do whatever I tell you to do rule rule number three. You don't ever tell you mother what we talk about or. I will go in that room and I will snap the rabbits neck. You got me so far it carries dead dummy topic nor and and I heard Joe Start to cry I did did I always like this. Guy Can't leave fast enough. I mean he's still compelling but you can't leave. Fast enough was movie wasn't called Easter Bunny di Di exactly sorry. I just went to that movie in my head. Oh my Lord I probably listen. If you asked me to watch that probably would have passed. I figured a year and I figured well. It's funny because like so you know I I grew up in a gun focused household not really a gun guy at all but like we used to go of these. gun shows where with my stepdad where they would have videos of rabbits in farm. It's getting shot and bats. That's that was enough. Faces death the ship for me yeah. That's not a fun family outing from me. I don't approve of that note. nope not see a gun. Show me something very different in Jordan mind world. Oh I'm sure but like yeah charged giggling quietly wait. I gotta I gotta ask. What's that Slang for anyway. Just assume it's like really big arms or is that house uh-huh straight that it's an educational program Jordan you tell our way out of Oh see you got your copying. Oh you got me by saying I'M GONNA make sure Jordan Gateway Secrets. I can expose them to recommend me or I'm. GonNa look it up on Bourbon Dictionary donal subtle over here ya so my they're going to learn it from you or learn you arrived. Its arms big arms. Oh Oh yeah let me see. I'm hip. I get it I'm cool. I'm cool with the gays Gazar to me. They move it on. Just edit all that out now. We have it on a loop for about three more minutes L. Great thank you. Thank you very much now. You know it's interesting. It's like talking about that. Video and talk about this is like it's always weird. His like this is sold adds a horror movie. What is it like because there's not really like there's not really a build buildup tension a lot of the sort of like shocked moments come from just how inhumane REMM is to Nicholas and it's interesting 'cause like this. There's more of an exploitation exploitation films. You know they have a very specific sort of agenda like. Let's show you this horrible thing. You're curious about and I'd argue that like all those is like kidnapping shows on lifetime or exploitation. I'll I'll yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. It's it's interesting to find that line. How far is like too far to visceral to whatever and that was that was interesting because like there were a bunch of stuff in this movie that I kind of had to be like Yo? If this is is what people think horror is like is this. Is this the kind of thing I want to be associated with at but then I shut up just kept watching. I still still found it less offensive than any rob. Zombie movie will yeah but yeah that's and that's considered ours yeah. That's that's that's a pretty specific nick type thing in itself like thirty one dead to me so anyway high Jordan the only guests on the show and he was the best movie featuring Malcolm banister thirty dollars vanished banish La La Desma. Okay back the movie. You know it's an interesting point. You brought up your I guess there's more exploitation horror because I mean it does specifically have those slasher elements you're but you do have to wade through a lot of unnecessary act to get clocked it and you. You don't see the first appearance of the murder bunny to like fifty. I funny what a great titled. But yeah. He doesn't show up fifty minutes. That's fifty you want minutes to fill and it's basically all about the suffering in explication of Nicholas who and I thought this is interesting. It's not just random. That's like aggressive to his as Monaco. It's she slaps twice or three times yeah but it's like it's like how it's like. It's not like a like a UH thing. It's like you know you never got slapped my mom but you never got slapped my mom. I never got hit by my dad. I know how to you know after point but like yeah man. It's just you know he's. He's got like most. The early part of the movie is exploitation that same way that Lake Take I spit on your grave is where we bitter like slattery or doesn't exist until actively characters put through a lot it has a nicholas put a a lot up to and including he's sold to whatever the God's name that Dude was the cane happy ray right south invoices left class. Oh He's great terrifying performance right now you. It isn't Judy Garland who has Graham if you've been last job. Ah got a little bit messy so I've been land more with this chicken. How sweet sounds a puppy dog tails in her house wasn't for Mongoloid Loyd Son. I think I'd be smiling from ear. Your retarded boy with you. He's in his room finger banging his bunny. Any rabbit could play with them. Thank you come on down to this little Easter Party. I'm having invite Mike Plenty of drugs date yeah that guy that guy's real mvp of that movie who's Ray Jordan. It is like the if ray wasn't in there. I would probably completely forgets down because one scene with ray it really actually creating out of it though I'm watching it and I'm like they certainly when it really like make this happen a movie and then I remember like no. This was an indie sound. That's could actually help you do. I really want to keep watching it at this point though like I'm actually watching a little bit. Were sitting. There like fringing up like this is really out. We really hope this doesn't go. Are we going because he comes in with a briefcase and opens it up and he's got a camera and a dildo cocaine syringes and shit yeah. He's yeah. He's supplying the Party for the party that REMM wants to have. He's bringing. Sim says on the phone. I'm having a party one. You come over invite lots of drugs so this guy's got money and drugs but he has his price. He likes little boys specifically as he says is retarded boys retarded by with you and hello teeny tiny boys my guys enormous but most about him suit his nails. Yes wasn't nails claws. Oh Yeah Yeah that's Oh yes. He had to have something snap off when he's getting murdered yeah but still I'm hard. Is that like you never see him use them but when you see them there so distinctive infrequently like what the hell is he can like. You just start imagining the because you know what he does and you know what he's here therefore exactly. What is he going to do with those odd. Unfortunately we never get to see that yeah unfortunately in it one day. I did want to say just about the movie itself. The I liked the choice that they had they had the excuse that the house was under renovation but this this plastic all over the house yeah as if a renovation and what I thought it was added made the House feel a hell of a lot bigger than it was US yeah. I like a fun house but not in a good way yeah now that was fair. I mean you know and that's always the thing that I like when I watch movies like this is to see 'cause as you really get this sort of like ground level filmmaking view of just you know you only have so much material in so much access to tack in tools effects ax and whatnot. How do you figure your way out of these problems and that was that you're right that was like a nice add on to create a sort of like both enclosed closed clean atmosphere and really clear like delineations where people were like moving in and out of and the as really gonNA help with clean up later on Oh God yeah absolutely now between this between this dexter in the Santa Monica Diet or the Santa Korea Diet? If the second I see tarp on running the other way. It's why it's why I'll keep that in mind Joe. Thank you thank you bubble. Wrap Joe Heavy hoppy yeah. I think that's that's going to be the way I end my next New Year's Eve party but yes so fortunately raise dismays. The first victim of the bunny rabbit gets it with a power drill slumber Marty Summer Party massacre style face and one of the things I appreciate it as well. It was the Gore effects. Were good yeah. That's definitely where the money went really yeah. You know like like you want. If you're you're going to slide you didn't go into those strip boob jobs because man those looked expensive. Didn't they do that big boulders and they're also like so they had to push the ones timely Siham topless. We just see like the blue so I just sort of add on now. I like you hire one person the actor in one person to be the the body double or something I mean it was all on screen. They left it. ONSCREEN shirted yes so the other the other people that are arriving there like I said there's been renovations at the house and when Nicholas comes out with some naughty words which gets them as I slap at the movie. mom wants to know relearn those words and he says he learned from where hey does go friend Hor. He's the guy who's doing the renovations yeah. We lovely slash Braxton where they're sticking their heads in the room. I I you know I I didn't love that character of the way was portrayed that that attenborough mint of them jumping through the plastic and repeating everything was really funny. That was really funny. well-done now 'cause isn't that the kind of scene report where they're still in the room before. It's really him like recalling what they said to him. They still have that plastic and you can actually see them. Moving back there we were watching C. Someone's already sneaking around in the room and everything and then we kinda had the come out. I didn't even realize it was like a like flashback sequence. UH-HUH I did notice that it's like it's just a piece of plastic in the back of his bedroom and their boats like squatting back. Their movies ruined ruin the Magic Jordan. That's okay. That's okay yes so there's them and the two. Oh hookers that REMM goes to pick up also some random dude yeah that up. What was her name. Yeah Corporate Lou. Lou Pay break some other guy to help because they come back that night 'cause she tells them she finds out that they were using these dirty words around her son and the were not being nice. I'm just like you're fired. Take your rituals go and Ram comes in throw them out so they decided to come back the same night that same night is the party to break in get his tools back and also rob so more bad people in the house and one of the things. I hate about the horror genre in general the modern horror genre is why why why why why must we always have seen people going to the bathroom on. I have a couple of theories. Oh I know the theories but I'm like you know what when I see Amy Adams the Squadron Pension Aloe and her next Academy Award winning film then I'll I will back off okay. We want to hear your theories. What are your theories the weather so while I mean it's kind of like being Nacre Acre like you're in the shower. You're just extremely vulnerable yeah well. I think it's that Nelson There's some there's some people said humor the kind of lives in the toilet so we may see that it's like. Oh that taboos about to be broken. ooh. You know welcome welcome to Trauma Yup. That's trauman nutshell or poop shell if if he wouldn't hey who doesn't exist at I hope never does. Let's pray on that. Oh by the way I love when she when the mom is saying I forget when this whole the same aim seen that she slapped Nicholas for using bad words were bowled inc yeah well actually I had to rewind turn on like the the subtitle to figure out what it was she said bulding that's right up there with neural brains terrible move terrible words but fabulous yes. These are all the people now and yes so I get Hor. Hey on the toilet for what seems like a half an hour. I can't stand it yeah. Yeah cannot stand it and then one of the Hukou twice in this movie. Thanks Easter. Bunny box was like what you what if you got like fifty five thousand dollars two thousand dollars one thousand dollars you gotTa have something that like is memorable for your flick to hang on and like you got gory. Got The nudity then you get the toilet seat. You gotta hit every single you know. Offensive characterization like dramatic gory twists couple a clever like plot turns. That's boom. You just made X. Amount of money Yup and that's that's your toilet seat right. There will always move the needle of I get you right. Boy Toilets scene is going to be a different audience. That girl toilets pleasing a wider audience so yeah you gotta mix it up you know at port. Kanye didn't go yeah all the Copperfield fanatics get yeah. They're they're cranky. You the big words Joe Sorry. He's such a show off Jordan. My I have a fifty thousand dollar like like Grad degree in horror and this is the only way I've ever found a user profit Vince Jubilee Goddamn showroom spitting every ten sent word. I now only good for the tent words now see how he is. He may be my date but he's my cheap date. I don't cheat that that just means you have to drink bud light rather than I duNno fancier beers. Yeah my effectiveness of kills. I'm actually I can't tell this trip as a partner who's Brooker whose candidate doesn't really matter the one who gets suffocated with the plastic yeah and instead with it the fact that the plastics filling up with blood around her head and like that was great. That was a great effect. It was grizzly. It was visceral visser on like. Oh Yeah ooh that would happen. Wouldn't it do yeah. I really liked that touch like that. There was that kind of visceral like you like because if it's an exploitation film you want it nasty delivered yeah. Oh yeah all the kids are nasty. I mean like there's one I never saw before I never sent him until to the broom before he swept that Brooke Right Up God well. It's one of those like like I love that trope in slasher movies were someone asks for like a household implement and then they're immediately killed by it like tabloids. That corkscrew made my childhood. You're wear joe but I like it. Yes there's lots of running around the house and a lot of it. It's just based on the strength of the characters and the action is exactly what you're thinking is. Everybody's getting killed with power tools yeah. They're all pretty great and for very small house bodies being head hit fairly effectively people are wandering around a long time of that binding is and when they do nobody makes any good decision because it's a horror movie and I think my favorite line in the movie was everybody calm the fuck down Easter not fucking Halloween clock. That's the line but that's the line to the movie. That's that's the that's the selling line and the other one. I thought that just kind of some the whole movie up was when he's driving home with the two hookers is like ladies welcome to the Sea of depravity. That's the first half of this movie ought to see if depravity and then all these people have to pay for it oh yeah and throughout the whole like slattery section. I was always still always going. Where's the bunny was the four legged bunting so you had a little while he does a he does. Bayton switch the one of the sex workers. He's like Oh. There's a rat run like how could you not tell the difference between a rabbit neurath. They did do a lot of co okay they did. They did a lot of I. I sort assumed that's the whole thing that motivated the movie both in front of and behind the camera. Dare you make those assumptions. I don't. I don't want listen. I don't WANNA world. Exploitation movie called Easter Day here comes Peter Cotton. Hell uh-huh. Oh believe me Joe Joe Joe. I was looking at all these horror movies. Okay 'cause I was even before jelly belly. Kelly suggested. I do this one again. Dan Let's see what else is out there and I started watching some of them on because they're almost all of them are in Amazon prime like these are all wretched. Oh yeah well. Damas is on crime lows the low in streaming there's one. I wish I could remember what I think. It might just be called Easter Sunday with cute little buggers which is the Irish. I think it's Irish. There's your Scottish. One where Leeann rabbits run around well. That'll be great. 'cause I know how bill ratliff the real adorable little rabbits than they're eating people's faces off. It's it's what you like rabbit murder okay and really who does no there was one. I got about ten minutes in this guys running around in a in a body mass killing people. I think he's resurrection from the dead on top of that you on is Easter Casket Hosp Hosp. No no no no because that's that's that's that's. That's my my friend who I think his name. Douglas says name yet. Does the Mills Justin melts. We did PUTMAN puppet monster massacre. I like stuff. I did not care for that one. Well you know I don't care if it because I went to Catholic school for Seventeen Years Jordan and in the first ten minutes. There was a non wearing lipstick take off matic the fact that she was totally naked and masturbating. I'm like I have a feeling this movie's a lie. It never entered my mind that she's not a real none. Maybe she's in none of a different church. You know if you know what I mean. If it's they've kind of church perhaps I don't know but but no so this guy he's he's chasing some guy and the guy farted on my house. This is my house and you in my house and he kills the guy for farting. I've done the narrative and I WANNA learn more. I it actually I stopped it. Turn on the tiles took. What screen shot ships. I gotta find this on my face like this. This is the kind of stuff I have to deal with people. I have to deal with like you didn't sign up for this life while you know what but now that I did. I have an obligation uh-huh defined the next educating thing or to appease my master's Jelly Belly Jelly all right well one love Joey Bill Kelly wife but so everything coming down every day and it turns out who's been the killer the whole time La Mama Mama Bunny taking care of her. What are they called baby bunnies. It's now. He doesn't know words ain't got no this. This is a pending the year baby rabbits you call them does and kids. I was right tall gets a very early on and the rams are being awful. Now I've antagonistic towards you Joan Joan. That's not okay therapist. Where where are we going baby. Doe's why don't even bring them up. Oh Yeah we got Mama. Mama Mama rabbits protecting your kid man yeah. She's John All along the reminiscent of of edge and the things he did said to her son that she was out all stage eavesdropping through Hercules they were unforgettable as she only pretended that she had to go to work and she's been hiding in the house all night knocking everybody off and like Okay Hey. I was totally happy with that ending but wait. There's more generally I'm dining out. I was hoping when if you would jump in because I've talking on this show. My tongue gets tired. I totally so it turns out that the homeless guy that we saw earlier who's all like grizzly burned shit like that who taught up a couple of times in the movie like startling people watching him parked cars. It's it's out that he is Nicholas's father and overcast spoiler territory here Nicholas's father other and the women's ex husbands who she thought she killed and Burns and he's like. I'm so sorry I didn't deserve you. Just really you know hey tried to murder me and you burn me alive but let's let's go. Let's do it. Let's be a family again well. He did bring her ahead. So you can't really they know to that yeah. He's definitely ahead of the other suitors. That's not funny joke absolutely funny. What a thoughtful gift. What a thoughtful gift 'cause I had one because one of the Jorges girlfriend didn't come in the House with them. She was sitting on the car the getaway and she drops out of the movie and she was interesting thing. I liked her possibly because she was one of the least awful people so as wondering like whereas Lupe was because I was enjoying wimpy and thence dropped out of the movie and then others loopy loop is in the bag. What's in the bag bag and then we have this weird happy family ending? Oh yeah it was strangely uplifting. I was trying defined a metaphor for like the actual Easter celebration in it was like a resurrection or something like that but then I realized I was over thinking it. Are you really it could be the holy family back together. If Jesus had cerebral Palsy Joseph was set on fire at some point it is it is entirely within my nature to over nothing steak monitor Virgin Mary. Are you just bloody on people that is terrible. I'm cutting that out because I will lose listeners. That was not okay sir. I was going to big long beep and they'll be like what did he say well. That's what he charges premium content on your Adrian. I'm Apache all that's right. Say Like your Franche Easter Bunny Kill Kill. I'm actually doing a screening of this. It'll already happened by that so the hopefully it be caught up with it. I've covered it before but overall more music than a short. Are you appreciated creative for like what they were trying to accomplish but you know ray kind of makes it so. I really don't ever want to watch this movie again. Ah Ah his performance is that good. Never WanNa meet that actor though really let's just because no man. He's like kind of you. You need these guys at conventions like you talk to them and you say hey. I like that Weird obscure movie that you did and they're like. Oh yeah man. That's totally cool. Hey Strip clubs. Let's go hang out or destroyed tonight like wait to get arrested again. This is true this district and this is by the way it actual story of one of the guys from in Texas chainsaw massacre one of the lead defense I yeah I know there's been weird weird. The incidences of celebrities of those conventions that I've witnessed with my own eyes but like okay they didn't expect that to get bloody but it did wow or to meet my I fans that I knocked his teeth out. Oh God just walked the hotel lobby and his blood and palm fronds everywhere and we're back to Easter. I mean you know Oh. I wonder what happened here. It's four in the morning I don't WanNa know and then the next day what happened in late okay crossing him off my my autograph less but people aw Oh yeah I said earlier I went to Catholic school for Seventeen years. My High School has been not saying the name but it has been a hotbed nasty activity for forty fucking years now and nobody does a fucking even while we were there like my brother went there in the seventies. I was there in the eighties. My nephew went there and the nineties might grand nephews going there now and the same she had been the first two times what no because they don't believe you so yeah. You're making that up. It's just you know they believe the the priests of course and if kids if the victims made a fuss they disappear and participation would just get sent to another scholar go to another school the same shit that he's seeing all the documentaries documentaries it really happens and we all knew the pre avoiding over a very dangerous pit with this all new the ones you had a voice and so many the voice oh yeah very stable why to Garland so the the first line out of his mouth. WBZ New like this is definitely a pedophile and so yeah he. I had goosebumps with his stuff because I know that voice. It's too on target. Which is why I never WanNa meet him because I always be thinking any of that. He did whatever I'm sure. He's a lovely person. Yes unsure he is an actual actor and not a pedophile they hired. I'm sure he's not but the thing hey you know what there's other drags you down around to you know whatever. I like those actors that feel like they got him is like this is my first job. After coming out of prison I thought getting acting legit yeah get paid to kill people destroying. Get my wife and kids back. You know just trying to buy my my bitch out. God terrible all right so before we go. I just want to focus a little bit on Justin and his game just just your sorry funny because that's my brother's name and I literally half my life of entrance Joe. Have I been saying just in this whole time now. Now this nurse okay 'cause literally. I'm looking at the words Jordan on the screens but as I told you during our first foreign called Jordan. Have I have to write it down or I will pronounce your name. Oh one of the things that makes this game so much and I had a conversation with Joe on on the phone a couple of weeks ago and I forgot record. It was terrible but the conversation was great but one of the things that makes this game so fun in so speedy. Is this little ingenious idea because you've got the characters playing the potential victims and you've got the killer and the victims are all trying not to get staff and get enough letters to spell cars so they can get away killers trying to block all of that and what makes you can play around in fifteen minutes or ten minutes whatever and reset so damn easy because the number of cards are extremely minimal other car packs would have like we're going to have this card further killer and this car for the victims the same cards join you down yet so the was actually kind of one of the bigger design championship but I had I wanted to make a game that had one person as the killer and as one person person as the rest victims but by finding a way to easily do that with a not making it so he had to spend like five minutes trying to reset. Everything actually took took time to figure out. I think I probably went through five hundred of these like blank playing cards that you get off Amazon trying a bunch of different things yeah Tom decided what it's all action cards as you just flip it over on one side it's for if you're the Giller just flip it over on the other side of that school and it's actually a friend randomly kind of said that too many Michael Crap that would actually work. I told Jordan I had designed a game years ago that involves cards almost similar nature but much more much more complicated but there was one person playing everybody else there were so many fucking cards and I could not get the number dot and when I saw these cards son of a bitch fifth such an obvious solution that you would never think give it didn't even think of a friend has mentioned it why was drunk and we were playing it and it was like well holy crap. You just blue thing. Why is he here now. Is he here now no I I. It's it's it's a fun game. We were yelling at each other screaming laughing at. I can't take video on their lives. The fact they had kick us out was amazing. That's put on box like we got so fucking. Record had a great time that we've got kicked him raise prices. We are trying to sing. Hello Dolly you pay ruining they. Everything I think probably made me when I was on the third different version of that. I was pretty sure I had it right. I played it with my cousin. Who's just like one of the nicest ladies that you'd ever made and she was the killer and she is the most vicious person and ten minutes Jordan. Tell tell people where they can find out more about the game. 'cause it's still. I know you've met your goal but are you in that state. Where if you had more money get better stuff. well actually not doing anything stretch goals with it right now. Just try to make the game so right now like the the game's. GonNa get made so like if you still want to get one so he can show it off to all your friends and make fun of them because they didn't get one nothing you just. Let's go to kickstarter search. Don't get stopped as there or if you don't go. Don't get stepped up. First thing that happens is big pop up that will take the kickstarter page nice. Thank you very much by the way if if you don't give that gift to your friend your friend automatically. GonNa assume that you want them to get stabbed so get it for your friend. I'm planning checking it out. Absolutely yeah yea. We'll finally up. We have to get another person but we'll play Joe Boyd Okay so Joe.

It's a bizarre absolutely boys have a fantastic evening. Easter Poker's poker saying go Kane hookers. It'd be battery on in California and more appropriately. I guess jeopardy skewered universe podcast. You know whatever better well done. I just wanted to call in and say I heard you're listening to the episode about grabbers and I'm really glad smoot us. Okay now where I work at the Home Office and my boss has an office cats. Let's personally has her cat. Which is the office cat and she's got quite a few health issues and kidney problems and twenty. Some years old is still oh kicking so wow when that can't get sick. I feel really bad 'cause I don't WanNa come in one day and be the one to discover she's past. Oh no no no no no no which was ill but I'm glad she's back home. Glad she's feeling better. Yes she's fine. The shows have been really good lately. I'll thank every good. Topics EXC really excited to hear about grabbers. I haven't seen that one yet so I can't see every movie why not time I'm working through stuff. Why not but but I question yes I wanted to know if there is a movie a horror movie that you really really enjoy now that I am a Geordie of people you know say is garbage or trash. They just hate it okay. I'm kind of curious to find out for me. I'd have to think about it a long time. I know one of them. I seem to find a lot of people don't really like that. I enjoy going to get schiffer. This is why I don't really enjoy Hispanic out fine. Wine is the nightmare on ELM street remake. Oh God click now and for that but there's elements there that I like which is why I don't mind putting putting it on. It's mostly the stuff Jackie Earle Haley. Everything else is just garbage diarrhea I I do you watch it. I own it. I bought it to be a complete collection but this is why we're divorced. What's something you like that. Everyone thinks trash not necessarily in the realm of the night Reynolds Street remake. Maybe something that it genuinely good and you don't understand why people hate it or is just one of those guilty. Pleasure movies is that people despise that you love okay all right Jeff Jeff Jeff Jeff Jeff Jeff Jeff. No you don't want to be the one mm to find the cat dead because you know it's going to be your fault just like when you're babysitting or cats you don't want to come in and find the cat or the baby dead because it's gotTa be you charge. If my cat or my baby will I would leave him in charge of my baby. Maybe you won't pay for it anyway. Because it's your baby okay. It's all very complicated. New listeners like what the fuck is going on. Jeff and I have a very complicated relationship. Just back off. Okay did back off a whole miniseries. Were drama but excellent question excellent question. What horror movie do I enjoy that other people hate. This is going to say this is what popped into my head and it's not even a fact that I enjoy this movie. I appreciate it artistry to this movie that other people don't really safe and I don't enjoy this movie at all but I was actually impressed with many things about it but I'm going to say ally Ross hostile the original original one and I'm going to tell you why I kind of find funny. The people pick on it beings beings extremely anti-foreign which I see it as being extremely anti-american which is if you look at where we were at that time it was immediately after after post nine eleven and the Bush administration was fucking everything up and Oh my God the world hated us and here we are again and man if you traveled abroad we were hated and the fact that you had a movie where you had these Americans going about being assholes and assault with a friend of mine who was a linguist he speaks like sixteen languages and he walked out of it very impresses like do you realize that I counted at least nine different languages being spoken to those kids every single one of them was talking about killing them in front of them to them about like I'm GonNa say hey. Hey there'd be like Yeah Great Party. I really liked your booze and they'd be like I'm going to be enjoying carbon your throat out later on tonight fuck and they'd be like yeah because we're Americans and we don't bother learning these things I also thought in a weird way the movie held hold up a mirror to the audience because if you remember the trailer there was no plot you did not see a character's face. You did not see an actor's name. All it promised you was a place where you could go. We could do anything you want. It and I kind of felt like the movie kept holding up. The Mirror going was that enough. Was that enough or do you want more. Do you want more because we can do more because this is what you who paid for. Don't act all shocked. Paul what we're doing because this is what we promised you also like the fact that at the beginning of the movie that when those guys are at that brothel they say man this brothel we can go into any one of these rooms and do anything we want to these girls. It's the exact same thing as the end of the movie so the fact that they're assholes is pointed. It's not just like we just wrote Shitty characters because we felt like no it is an absolute point that this is the absolute ugly the American which is the way the world viewed us at the time and here we are again and while I say it's not a movie I enjoy I appreciate it that it had the balls to hold up the Mirror to American society and say hey take a look at yourself asshole. The world hates you. WanNa reexamine why I mean even even when it came the pricing of the victims like kids torture kids around the world for relatively cheap prices when it came to American bobang that price like tripled quadrupled people because it was an ultimate pleasure to torture and kill the shit out of a fucking American because the world hate it is and I thought that was brilliant in a lot of people didn't see past the he's battery and the Gore and I thought that was more to it than that and so that is my answer Jeff. Thank you for the question. Maybe we'll covered on the show for Halloween. Who knows we'll see we'll see I only have like what twenty one movies to talk about in twenty one days. God where we're going to do by Jeff. Thank you for volunteering jeff volunteered. I don't know what I'm doing with him yet.

Sleep Disorders & The Nocturnal Brain

"From W._H._y._y.. In Philadelphia I'm Terry Gross with fresh air today sleep disorders and the nocturnal brain we talk of neuroscientists Doctor Guy Leshner about Insomnia narcolepsy night terrors sleepwalking even something known as sex som- Neha where people pursue sexual acts in their sleep we used to think of Sexual Muris being relatively rare phenomenon but actually whenever I do anything like this on the radio will write about. I'm usually inundated as a boy. I E mails all message saying Oh yes only do that. Hilas discuss what to do if you can't sleep and explain research about the connection between sleep disorders and dementia is new book is called the Nocturnal Brain. Also we listen back to an interview with Paul crasner he founded the sixties counterculture magazine the realist and Co founded the Yippies. He died Sunday at age eighty seven our guest Dr Guide Leshner writes that you can survive longer without food food than without sleep as sleep disorder specialist he seemed plenty of patients with insomnia and just about every other kind of Nocturnal Problem Night Terrors narcolepsy sleep apnea sleepwalking sleep eating sleep driving and something called sex Omnia in his new book he described some of his more challenging cases and the growing body of research into sleep and sleep problems guy listeners neurologist and head of the Sleep Disorders Center at Guy's hospital in in London he spoke to fresh air's Davies about his new book the Nocturnal Brain Nightmares Neuroscience and the secret world of sleep Dr Guy Listener welcome to fresh air <hes>. You've got some fascinating cases in this book before we get to them. I WANNA just cover a couple of basics. A lot of us have heard of rapid eye movement sleep REMM SLEEPWORD are eyeballs are darting rapidly and then there's non rapid eye movements non-re- REMM sleep deep you WanNa just explain the differences between these two kinds of sleep well if one looks at the brain during sleep we now know that actually sleep is not a static status not a simple binary restate whereby were either awake or asleep. What we now know is that actually there are a number of different brain states that occur while we sleep and we tend to Davar divide those at brain states though sleep state into as you say say remmel rapid movement sleep and non rem sleep in Remm sleep actually when we look at the brain the brain from an electrical point of view looks to be very very active in fact the brainwaves look very much like the brain waves of an wake brain in its during this stage of sleep the we associate dreaming <hes> to occur particularly those dreams of a narrative structure plots evolving overnight <hes> and during that stage of sleep when the brain is very active tive actually is probably when we are most separated from our bodies in fact although in this stage of sleep the is dot back and forward pretty much every single muscle in our bodies apart from the muscles that control our is a completely paralyzed whereas in non rem sleep when we look at the brainwaves the brain waves are slow the large this is less associated with dreaming although we do dream of sorts in in non rem sleep and it seems that these a two different types of sleep probably have rather different functions yeah what are the different functions well <hes>? I think the short answer to that is that we don't fully no. We think that remm sleep is particularly important. Depending on the stage age of of of life in the development of consciousness in learning in creativity in emotional processing whereas non rem sleep is perhaps the stage the stage of sleep during which those restorative aggressive functions of the impact the brain and also impact the body occur so things like cleansing out toxic metabolites from the brain <hes> regulation of the immune system and a variety of other functions so it's it's the non rim sleep that people refer to as deep sleep well non rem sleep encompasses this <hes> slightly different stages sleep were the eye movement don't dot back and forth but within non Rem sleep there exists what we turn stage one stage to in Stage three sleep in stage each three sleep is the very deep sleep that we associate with waking up feeling restored feeling refreshed okay. Let's talk about some of the disorders that confront you in the clinic. SLEEPWALKING is one and you've had some patients with some pretty strange episodes WANNA share a couple of them. Yes I the one that always comes to mind. <hes> first of all is is the seventy year old woman that I saw a few years ago who would be found to be driving up and down see the front in her local town in the middle of the night in fact in in in earlier life she had had a motorbike had been seen riding her motorbike apparently in her sleep and even at an earlier stage <hes> she was brought up in Canada and she would often often go into the Wilderness with guides <hes> on camp and would wake up her tent mates growling very loudly in the middle of the night of course they thought that they were being attacked by Grizzly bear and so she was soon sent back home <hes> because of the terror that she triggered in all her colleagues so so that's that's one example but e sleepwalking all conditions associated with sleepwalking can really manifest in a number of ways and these include sleep terrors where people wake up in the middle of the night <hes> absolutely terrified <hes> screaming and shouting and then go back to sleep often with very little recall <hes> and then there are some some other conditions things like sex omnia which she's sexual behavior in sleep so sometimes these conditions sound very funny and <hes> an indeed can be very funny but on other occasions they can be really life-changing resulting in major injury or as one of the cases I described the book <hes> in <hes> a criminal conviction right and in all you had another patient Alex who had got up and order pizzas and then none of do any of them remember any of this after the fact well. We used to think that people don't really remember any thing that occurs in this stage that seems to relate to the fact that the brain in parks is in very deep sleep watson other parties awake what we have learned over the last two years is that actually of course a lot of people have some sort of limited recall they don't necessarily remember the details of of all the events or indeed the the entirety of the event but sometimes they do experience little snippet so Alex who you referred to would would also do things like distribute glasses of water around the house for his sleeping flatmates without any recollection but those events that were associated with a much stronger emotional content so natural disasters on one occasion he dragged his girlfriend out of bed in the middle of the night because he thought that it's Nami was about to wash them away and those kinds of events with strong emotional context or often better remembered right so this category of sleep problem this. There's none Ram Para Samba. This is from the sleep where your eyeballs are not darting about that from what do scientists think is going on. When this happens well I talked earlier about the fact that we no longer consider sleep to be a binary state written on or off state but what sleepwalking in particular tells us is that sleep is also not a global state and what I mean by that is that the whole of the brain can is not necessarily in the same stage of sleep at the same time so that individuals who exhibit this group of disorders called the Nonren- Personas these unwanted behaviors that arise from non remm sleep typically the very deeper stages of non rem sleep what we see the scanning the while they're exhibiting these behaviors or sometimes with electrodes is that certain parts of the brain can remain in very deep sleep in the parts of the brain the in particular remain in very deep sleep at the frontal lobes which of the <hes> the seats of our rational thinking are planning our <hes> restricting on normal behaviors whereas other parts of the brain can exhibit electrical activity that is really akin to being wide I to wake so in particular the parts of the brain that responsible for emotion an area of the brain called the limbic system obviously the parts of the brain that responsible for movement and it's this dissociation this this disconnect between the different parts of the brain in terms of their sleep stages that actually give rise to these sorts of behaviors okay so part of our brain is sleeping soundly and some other part for some reason is aroused and functioning? Do we know why this happens. We know that put sleepwalking in these related conditions <hes> seemed to run very strongly and families so there seems to be some sort of genetic predisposition to being able to enter into this disconnected brain state <hes> <hes> and we know that anything that disrupts your sleep if you have that genetic predisposition can give rise to these behaviors so for example I've seen people who have had nonren- Paris omnia events triggered by the fact that they sleep even creaky bed and their bed partner is rolled over sometimes a a large truck driving past in the street outside the bedroom but they're also internal manifestations internal <hes> processes processes that can give rise to these partial awakenings so for example snoring or more severe than snoring sleep apnea where people stop breathing in their sleep occasionally other sleep disorders like condition called periodic Len movement disorder let people kick and so anything that causes a a change in the depth of sleep in people who are predisposed to this phenomenon of being in multiple sleep stages at the same time can give rise to these behaviors and we think thing that is probably a throwback to certain evolutionary mechanisms so for example if you look at certain animals particularly aquatic mammals and certain species of birds they can sleep with only one half of their brain at the same time because that allows them to swim or to surface for will to carry on <hes> flying whilst they are asleep and and and so it's well established the having different parts of the brain in different stages of sleep occurs in nature. I said it may be that this is a bit of an evolutionary hangover for us right. You mentioned that it manifest in sleep walking sleep driving sleep eating and something you refer to as sex Omnia you want to tell us what that is what your patients have exhibited so sex. Omnia is really a type of nonren- Paris Omnia that manifest with sexual behavior in the range of sexual behavior can be quite broad <hes> but at its extremes streams can result in people trying to pursue full blown sexual intercourse in in sleep <hes> we used to think of sexism near as being relatively rare phenomenon but actually whenever I do anything like this on the radio will write I talked to I'm usually inundated boy emails or messages saying Oh yes only do that and actually in the sleep lab she directly asked people about sex SOM- near lots of people will actually <hes> will actually report it but they don't tend. Go to the doctor with it because for most people it's not a particular problem where it does get to be a major problem is if it's a results in unwanted sexual behavior usually when you're sharing a bed with somebody who is not your regular the partner <hes> and as describing in one of the cases <hes> one of my patients ended up convicted of rape as a result of one of these events for a lot of people these non Rim Para Sandia these these these conditions can create create serious problems so cheap for People Jackie who's driving around in our neighborhood or Alex was ordering pizzas. <hes> how how how do you treat them well. I think the first question is whether or not they want specific Nick Treatment as a as I talked about in the book with with Jackie actually the reason why Jackie came to see me is because she was worried about <hes> the fact that she was driving up and down her her seafront in the middle of the night and thought that she might danger to herself a self and two other people and it was when she went to her family practitioner that she was told we'll actually the only the only way to manage this might be to get her admitted into an inpatient secure psychiatric unit <hes> but actually she had gone through her life relief seeing this is very much part and parcel of who she was and she actually hits upon her own way of trying to manage in that she bought herself at time locked safe where she would deposit her car keys a new that she could not get recall keys out of the safe until six o'clock in the morning thus treating herself very well for people who are putting themselves at risk or putting other people risk. There are a range of things that we can do the first thing is to try and optimize tamale sleep generally because people who sleep deprived that in itself comprimse the brain for developing these sorts of behaviors but for more extreme cases and if that doesn't work than dealing with anything else that might be disrupting their sleep looking at their environment looking to see whether remotely snow and treating those issues is often a very successful way of dealing with these sorts of problems in very few cases when people are really putting themselves at risk than we will. It'll resort to a certain types of medication to try and treat these sorts of events all kinds of medication well. The the sorts of treatments the have been demonstrated to work include drugs like Melatonin in certain instances senses Benzodiazepines Clasby Pam and also arrange antidepressant drugs. Now all of these drugs have potentially serious short and long term side effects so in any individual their risks in the benefits of treating them with medication. Education needs to be weighed up very carefully so you manage it behaviorally if you can. I think that that's the case for many sleep disorders if we can avoid medication than that would be the optimal way of managing these conditions sleep. Apnea is an issue that really troublesome people. What what exactly is it sleep? Apnea describes the phenomenon of our airway collapsing down in sleep so our airway <hes> is essentially intially a floppy tube that has some rigidity some structure to it as a result of multiple muscles and as we drift off to sleep those muscles lose some of attention and the airway becomes a little bit more floppy now when it's a a little bit floppy and it reverberates as we breathe in during sleep that will result in snoring the reverberation of the walls of the away result in the noise but in certain individuals the Iway can become floppy enough for his narrow enough for it to collapse down bound to block airflow as we're sleeping. Am It's normal for that to occur every once in a while for for for everybody but if it occurs very frequently the more happens is sleep can be disrupted. Sometimes ten sometimes comes twenty sometimes even a hundred times an hour because as we drift off to sleep the airway clamps down or oxygen levels drop a heart rate increases our brain wakes up again and <hes> all sleep is essentially being disrupted did and then <hes> the highway becomes a little stiffer <hes> they then gradually start dozing off to into deep stages of sleep in that saeco continues. You say that we're seeing an epidemic of sleep apnea yeah so I as all girth as all weights increase the incidence of obstructive sleep apnea also increases sleep apnea is very strongly associated with <hes> obesity in that <hes> wait on the throws tour on the chest <hes> fat being deposited within the muscles in our throats at can often result in our airway becoming narrower or actually be losing a structural rigidity rigidity <hes> more easily so as we as a population get larger obstructive sleep apnea gets worse and the issue is beyond simply that of feeling sleepy because once had one sleep disrupted all the way through the night. We are now aware the obstructive sleep apnea has a range of longterm implications on our health in terms of <hes> high blood pressure in terms of risk of cardiovascular disease risk of stroke <hes> <hes> impact on our cognition so our mental clarity and there is now a an emerging body of evidence to suggest that actually obstructive sleep apnea may be a factor in the development of conditions like like dementia. Wow now there. Is this treatment this you know fairly invasive treatment where you wear masks the C-PAP right. It's called continuous positive airway pressure where it keeps put print putting some air pressure in your mouth so that the the airway doesn't collapse laps <hes> that's not the easiest thing to deal with both for you and your sleep partners right. It is a challenging <hes> piece of Kit for many people I think on the plus side individuals with sleep e-patent often field transformed by the use of this piece of kit the c-pap mosque they say that within a few days they feel like completely different individuals they are sleeping through the night their full of energy. They feel mentally mentally much clearer but we know that in the long term for many individuals the of CPAP can be quite challenging because essentially what you're doing is you're taking a mosque and you'll strapping it to your face to create a seal and that's attached to small machine that generates this positive pressure. I'm an so strapping something onto your face in itself. Every night cannot be particularly easy to handle but if it's leaking if it's uncomfortable than that creates further issues and so we're constantly looking for alternatives to c-pap in in certain individuals you do see other <hes> sleep aids you know mouth guards in the for sleep apnea. What do you think of so mouth God's provided that they are made properly and provided did they comfortable can thought many individuals be extremely useful and they essentially the way that they work is the first of all keep your mouth shots whilst your <hes> while you're sleeping and said that prevents your jaw falling back narrowing narrowing the away the second thing they do they push the lower jaw forward and because the tongue is anchored to the lower jaw it pushes the base of the tongue forward and actually creates a bit more space at the back of the throat so for people with Mark Sleep apnea or indeed sometimes even even simple who'll snorers so people who snow but don't have sleep apnea these devices which we call mandibular advancement devices can work extremely well? I think there are a whole range of other consumer devices for which the evidence is much less affirm and <hes> people will often cycle three many of these things like <hes> nasal strips or <hes> little stents that actually are not so helpful and a lot of cases. It sounds like the first step might be to loosen weight weight. Loss is a very good way of treating sleep apnea. What we don't know is free each individual how much weight they need to lose in order to reverse the sleep apnea they have but certainly is the one proven long-term way of curing obstructive sleep him?

Let's get back to the interview. Davies recorded with Dr Guy Leshner a neurologist who has the sleep disorder center at Guy's Hospital in London. He has a new book about treating a wide variety of sleep problems including insomnia sleepwalking sleep apnea and narcolepsy. The book is called the Nocturnal Brain nightmares neuroscience and the secret world of sleep you right about narcolepsy which is a disease. We've heard of an you know we always think of this as people who suddenly fall asleep in the middle of the day but it's a more wide ranging problem than you write about a guy named Adrian who had a different manifestation of this what was going on with him so Adrian began in his forties experiencing events whereby if he experienced very strong emotion and it was a very specific emotion it was an internal oh feeling of mirth so if he was telling a joke or he was the subject of something funny he would experience something very bizarre in that all of a sudden he would experience a sudden loss of muscle strength and would collapse to the floor. The first time he experienced this he was trying to play a trick on his mother he driven up outside a house and he noticed that she was in the garden and he crept up behind garden fence and the last minute jumped out from behind the garden fence and smashed the garden fence in order to make loud annoys a only to find himself allying in the garden face down and this was really the first manifestation of this condition called Caterpillar C. which is really part and parcel of narcolepsy for a majority of people so it is the loss of muscle strength associated with strong emotion usually laughter actually so what's happening here. Well the the answer as to what's happening in narcolepsy is really come from docs which is a rather all the peculiar state of affairs in the last century <hes> Stanford <hes> identified a a number of breeds of dogs that had narcolepsy they bred them for many years before then identifying that these breeds needs of of dogs that had narcolepsy had a mutation of genetic abnormality in a very particular gene the coded for a receptor for chemical called erects in hypoc written now when this mutation nation was looked at in humans. It wasn't found but over the years we've identified that actually this neurotransmitter this chemical in the very middle of the brain called a wrecks in hyppocratic is responsible for regulating multiple aspects of sleep in. In humans what seems to occur is that there is some sort of immune process that triggers off the attack of a very small number of cells in the depths of of the brain in an area called the lateral hypothalamus which are almost entirely or all entirely destroyed by our own immune systems so when the area of the brain is damaged it disrupts the ability to regulate way can sleep but it also damages our ability to regulate switching between dreaming sleep a non dreaming sleep and it's these two aspects that really explain most of the features of narcolepsy. So how have you been able to help people with argument will narcolepsy the moment is still viewed as a lifelong irreversible condition once you have it you will always have it but over the last twenty years or so there have been numerous strides in terms of options for treating narcolepsy and it very much depends on which aspect of narcolepsy you're trying to treat their all drugs. What's that primarily treat the sleepiness the drugs the primarily <hes> treat the CATNIP LEXI and they're also other drugs specifically treat the holiest nations all the sleep promises so it's about trying to find the right drug all the right combination the nation of drugs to treat all the aspects of the condition at and are there kind of environmental or behavioral things you can do that how so planned naps of very helpful for people with narcolepsy so what we often encourage people to do is is to work into their school life or the work life the opportunity to have fifteen or twenty minutes of a nap at a planned juncture because that's a very good way of preventing sleepiness for the coming at a few hours so certainly there is an aspect of behavior that does help people with narcolepsy well? We haven't talked about insomnia which is so common. I mean I didn't get a very good night's sleep last night. <hes> you say Insomnia Zombie and sleep deprivation are quite different in what way well when people have insomnia they think that <hes> they are sleeping very little and uncertainty. That's the case for some individuals with insomnia but we we know the insomnia. There's more than just one condition so some people for example will feel that they've had very very poor quality sleep but actually when we monitor the brainwaves their sleep overnight and asleep lab we can actually see that they're getting pretty decent amounts sounds of sleep and so people can sometimes miss perceive the amount of sleep that they have in other individuals actually when one is slightly sleep restricted as a result of insomnia the brain tends to compensate for that by increasing the proportion portion of a a very deep sleep so the slight difficulty is is that people with insomnia have often read lots of stuff about how disruptive how bad for every aspect of your health sleep deprivation. Shen is but the solution for people asleep. The product is much easier. Essentially you just need to increase the amount of Tom Spend in bed in the amount of time you sleep whereas for people with insomnia that's much more difficult to achieve is not a question of how much of an opportunity to after sleep is the very fact they can't get off to sleep when they want to. That is the issue or even if they do fall asleep is the fact that they feel that they're sleep. Quality is poor and so they read all this stuff about about how damaging sleep deprivation is and actually that increases their anxiety about the fat. They're not getting off to sleep and can result in this vicious cycle. If you're a good sleeper you tend to associate being bed with being that in place of comfort that place where you go and you feel cozy and you drift off to sleep and you wake up in the morning feeling wide awake and refreshed but for people with insomnia they often associate bed with great difficult the go-to getting off to sleep with the dread of the night ahead with the fact that they know that when they wake up in the morning they will feel horribly refreshed and an unrest it and so sleep that the the environment that we normally would associate with sleep becomes an instrument of torture for them. Now people take pills like Ben Zo Diaz's opinions like client opinion <hes> and medicines like resulted him. The brand name is ambien good idea well. There has been a bit of a sea change in the last few years away from these drugs. We know that these drugs all our soporific sedative so the first thing to know is that they do not mimic normal sleep there associated associated with some major problems so <hes> some of these drugs for example associated with an increased risk of road traffic accidents in the morning because of a hangover effect their associated with an increase risk of falls in the elderly for example and we know that people can develop a dependency on these drugs and can also habituate by which I mean they require ever-increasing doses to obtain the same effect in the long term. There are now some signals coming out of the <hes> <hes> work that is being done around the world that suggests that some of these drugs are actually associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline in dementia and whilst that story is not completely understood and it may be that people who have off <hes> insomnia in themselves predisposed to dementia or actually insomnia may be a really early warning sign of Dementia Cerny gives us cause for concern that perhaps we shouldn't be using these drugs quite liberally as we have done historically quickly and so therefore the switch to behavioral approaches approach is like cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia has been really driven by some of these concerns guy left center is an Raj est and sleep disorder specialist.

Politics podcast is going to be there to break down everything you need to know about what he says. Guy Listener is a neurologist and sleep disorder specialist. His new book is called the Nocturnal Brain. You know I've always been able to function pretty well on five or six hours of sleep at night or at least so I've thought an my deluding myself and my harming myself well they're all significant genetic influences as to how much sleep if we need so this notion of seventy eight hours <hes> being the optimal amount is correct when one looks at a population but for a particular individual we know that there are people who get on absolutely fine with less than seven hours or or actually need nine or ten hours to feel <hes> fully refreshed one of the great difficulties is that we know that there are genetic influences that influence not only are resistance to sleep deprivation in terms of how Oh sleepy we all but also in terms of the cognitive effects of sleep deprivation so what I mean by that is that just because you don't necessarily feel sleepy does not imply the the sleep deprivation that you're experiencing not having having any impact on your mental abilities you'll performance and so <hes> perhaps the worst situation to be used to be one of those individuals who doesn't get particularly sleepy when they're sleep-deprived but his very liable to those cognitive negative effects. You're a neurologist and there's a lot of research going on in various aspects of sleep. <hes> what are the questions your most interested in seeing answered in the coming years I'm well. I think the question why we sleep still has to be altered. I mean in a way you know we've moved tremendously <hes> far in terms of understanding why we sleep but there is still an awful lot to be learned. You know we do this thing for eight hours a night. <hes> you know we spent formal time sleeping than doing anything else and to to to ask question why do eat or why do we drink would be laughable yet. We're still asking the question. Why do we sleep? The reality is sleep probably has a multitude of different functions but at the moment moment we still don't really know the true answer. That's lots of work still to be done. The other areas. I think of going to be a fundamental importance is understanding the association between sleep and some some of the major issues from public health perspective that we face in particular conditions like dementia if we are if we can really truly understand sleep disruption or sleep disorders can increase our risk of developing dementia than that provides a huge opportunity because sleep is one of them potentially major modifiable risk factors for diesels of conditions and in understanding why we sleep are there. Are there particular hypothesis that you think are promising or areas of research that you think could be particularly revealing. I think that <hes> what we're going to find out is that essentially this pattern of behavior has arisen <hes> through evolutionary mechanisms and as we of organ we as organisms of become more complicated <hes> all bodies have developed lots of different functions that have taken the opportunity the of this seven or eight hours a night <hes> controlling <hes> blood pressure controlling our immune systems <hes> regulating various functions of of the brain be memory learning creativity and I think that what we're going to end up finding is that basically any waking activity any physiological activity the we undertake is going to be in some way influenced by sleep so I think the answer to why we sleep is going to be <hes> multiple answers not just one in the interests of us all sleeping a little better. Do you have recommendations for what we should do when we go to bed or or not do using gadgets in particular is not very good for asleep <hes> if you all this once can comes down to genes. We know that there is huge variability in terms of the impact of of lights on sleep in the we have receptors does in the back of are always cool retinal ganglion cells the not involved in vision at all but what they essentially are direct gateway between environmental light and the power for brain that regulates our circadian rhythm our internal body clock and so for many individuals exposure to bright light particularly blue light is a very good way of suppressing our own intrinsic Melatonin Melatonin is a hormone that's produced by the brain and it's really the. The chemical signal to the brain and the rest of the body that it's time to go to sleep so what you'll potentially doing by for example using your your tablet or laptop or mobile phone more late in the night is you're exposing yourself too large amounts of blue lights which can really <hes> prevent you from drifting off to sleep quantities the as you are the what should and can actually have a negative impact on the quality of your sleep so the first thing that I would say is try and avoid brought light exposure late night. The second thing is to make sure that you only go to bed when your sleepy at the brain likes a rhythm when it comes to sleep but you should not be slavishly keeping to that rhythm I am going to bed when you're not when you're not sleepy because what that then does it if you're if you are <hes> in some way predisposed to insomnia in actually strengthens the association between being in bed and having difficulty getting off to sleep rather than being in Beden drifting to sleep so is is reading and bad before you not offer good idea yes provided you're not reading on a on a tablets or a <hes> a laptop you know old-style analog book <hes> I would a highly recommend <hes> it's a good way of reducing your light exposure keeping your mind a little bit active so that you're not concentrating on the prospect of having to drift off to sleep until you're really tired. It's very good way of keeping keeping you mind occupied. I'm told there are podcasts that that are good idea. Well you know I've I've I've occasionally out of interest. Listen to one of these podcasts which was a man in a sort of deep south accent murmuring gently telling a very <hes> boring story <hes> and the aim of the aim is to distract you from the prices of getting off to sleep so just providing enough distraction that you're not concentrating on. Oh my God go to sleep home game to be awake all night <hes> but not providing enough interest to to keep you awake at night. I think the key thing is to work out what works for you and if that works for you great if a white noise generate or pink noise generated works you then in great. Let's say the same thing is the case for caffeine. You know there are some people for whom having to Scholz of espresso before they go to bed. We'll have absolutely no impact on their sleep whatsoever and if that works for you then go for it if you know that caffeine gene is going to disrupt your you'll sleep then avoid it from lunchtime on woods because caffeine can depending on how much of it you drink can hang around for a long long time. It's about understanding your own sleep and working out what works for you guy a listener. It's been really interesting that thanks so much speaking with us. Thanks very much for having me doctor.

We're going to listen back to an interview with Paul Crasner who was a prominent figure of the sixties counterculture he died Sunday. At the age of eighty. Seven crasner was considered one of the fathers of the underground press because he published an edited the realist magazine from Nineteen fifty eight to nine hundred in seventy four he described the realist as a magazine of free thought criticism and satire pieces that were too radical or controversial for the mainstream press found a home in the realist Lenny Bruce Gene Shepherd Abbie Hoffman Terry Southern and Jules Pfeiffer were some of the people crasner published he also contributed his own interviews with people ranging from Woody Allen to Patty hearst crasner described his editorial philosophy combining entertainment with the First Amendment he was also famous for Co founding the Yippies along with Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin the hippies were politically and culturally radical group whose protests and demonstrations sometimes took the form of pranks or street theater. I spoke with Crasner in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. You started the realist in nineteen fifty eight and this was really before the underground presser at least before the alternative press was given that name of the underground press <hes>. Why did you see a need for something like the realist for publishing pushing the kinds of things that were either <hes> so radical or so bizarre that they wouldn't appear in the mainstream press well I had been doing freelance stuff for mad magazine and for <hes> the Steve Allen Show and I just came in contact with more and more taboos the first thing I did for mad magazine was a thing called if comicstrip characters answered those ads on the back of magazines and we had <hes> Dick Tracy getting a nose job alleyoop soup getting rid of his superfluous hair we went to to have a olive oil sending away for falsies and the publisher said No? He didn't WanNa do that <hes> because his mother would object but your mother's not a typical subscriber and he said yes but she's a typical mother so there was really no humor for adults in this country except for maybe cartoons and a New Yorker this was before doonesbury before National Lampoon before spy magazine before Saturday night live so I had a pretty clear airfield to say in print what I would say in the living room so tell me more about your vision for the realist when you start it well first thing <hes> I was still living with my parents at the time I was publishing what was considered the hippest magazine in the country and I was living with my my parents and I remember they were watching a telephone and I suddenly blurted out this is barbaric and they looked at me as if I were Martian and of course in there is I wasn't Martian and I think it was kind of species. She's a a a a a need for community. <hes> for an extended family so that I knew I couldn't be the only Martian on my block or there was no hope and so the real served as a kind of network for Martians all over the country and <hes> the first thing I published in fact in fifty eight was at peace a child's primer on telethons called see the tired man which talked about the contradictions of <hes> having the private sector raise money secure leukemia while the government was exploding test atomic bombs which had fall out that causes leukemia. You are one of the founders of the Yippies with Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and it was you who actually coined the the name so why don't you tell us how you did it how you came up with that well. We were <hes> having a meeting. This was on the afternoon of December thirty first nineteen sixty seven <hes> on the low recite of New York at the home of Abbey Hoffman several of us there and we were planning a protest to the Democratic convention in Chicago that year nineteen in common to coming in nineteen sixty eight I._S.. Journalists knew that reporters need the WHO for the who what when where and why and I remembered remember that a few months before that the diggers which were sort of psychedelic social workers in San Francisco's Haight Ashbury that they had held a parade for the death of Hippie because they felt that had become such a media exploited term and so they wanted to be called Free Americans. which was you know you don't find people yelling get a haircut you lousy free Americans so I knew that it needed something else and I started going through the alphabet it'd be dippy and was about to give up when I said Yippee to myself and realize that that would be perfect and then worked backwards to see what acronym that could come from? Everything has to be an acronym right well just to give it an organic derivation. Even though I was working backwards so the letters Y.. I N P <hes> U._P._S.. Would derive out of that and then again working backwards I so that the the words youth and International and party were so appropriate because it was a youth movement it was international and that was a party party in both senses of the word. I'm sure in the sixties that <hes> you always wondered if you were followed by the F._B._i.. And what was in your F._B._I.. Files I I don't know if you've ever filed under the freedom of Information Act or no. I got my files MCI. M._I._C._R.'s files both yeah. What's one of the most interesting things in your file? I guess the most frightening was that in nineteen sixty nine the F._B._I.. Published and distributed anonymously a flyer which had on swat a swastika large swastika and each square of the Swastika was a photo of Jerry Rubin Abbie Hoffman Mark Rudd of S._D._S. and myself and then a headline said lamp shades lamp shades lamp shades and the copy happy underneath said that the only way that oppressed blacks would get rid of their oppression would be for the elimination of these Jewish leaders then the approval letter from the Washington office of the F. B.. I. said that <hes> the publication distribution Shen of this flyer should not be traceable to the bureau <hes> this flyer which has the facetious suggestion for the elimination of these leaders so I guess they were covering tracks though if anybody killed us they can say well we said facetious so that was the most frightening frightening thing that you know the and especially that it was being done with tax payers money. Did you ever get rid of the paranoia that though is maybe somebody tapping your phone or following you <hes> well. I tried to avoid the paranoia by <hes> having a criterion that everything I said was on the record and so I've virtually had no secrets except perhaps the name of my marijuana dealer but <hes> everything I did was really legal. There was one demonstration that I got arrested for and <hes> they dismissed it for lack of evidence and the judge started lecturing us saying next time don't tempt fate and I started arguing. I said well wait is freedom of assembly a tempting fate and my lawyer jabbed me in the ribs and said of quiet. This is my first case. Don't blow it for me. Well Listen Paul crasner. Thank you very much. We're talking with us. My pleasure Paul crasner recorded in nineteen eighty eight. He died Sunday at the age of eighty-seven tomorrow on fresh air. My guest will be Lulu Wong. We'll talk about drawing on her own experiences to write and direct the new film the farewell when her grandmother in China was diagnosed with stage for cancer and given three months to live the family flew to China to see her decided not to tell her about the prognosis despair her the anxiety Lulu had to betray her instincts and hide the truth to. I hope you'll join US fresh. Air's executive producer is Danny Miller. I'm Terry Gross. We'll close with a song featuring art neville singing lead. He died yesterday at age eighty one. He was a founding member of the Neville brothers and the meters famous for their New Orleans sound as the rolling stone obituary says perhaps it's no song better summed up art nevels influence than Mardi Gras Mambo which he recorded with the Hawk cats when he was sixteen here it is all it takes to let that ramp combos with them Numata Ground Mambo Mambo.
