"I highly recommend breaking. Breaking up with friends though is I have not messed with that. Oh my God. Me me. Did you have to do it recently? Here's the thing. I recently opened up my Facebook again for the first time in three years. Because I was very like, get out of Facebook and then just for like work things and networking things that turn it back on and back on, I just saw like so many messages from people I was like, oh, yeah, you from that class in like that. And I'm like, why are you talking to me? I have no connection with you anymore. And then I'm like, I'm just putting the pandemic lens on everything where I'm just like I'm not saying anything to anyone just yet. Let's just sit it out. Yeah, that's very fair. I had an experience this must have been within the last 6 months where I just actually needed to tell somebody directly like I like you and I want to be part of a group with you, but our interpersonal friendship is just not going to happen because like this person just sort of crossing boundaries and it was making me uncomfortable. But I liked they weren't like they weren't like sexy boundaries, otherwise wouldn't even have said that. There were just like, oh, I don't want to talk about these particular things with you in this sort of casual way at this time. It just doesn't work for me, maybe somebody else would be fine with this. But I had to really build myself up and then I realized that I needed to say something. I actually had to have a conversation with somebody, which was wild and also very empowering, and this person was super awesome about it. And then you know, has been kind to me since, but it is, that is a test of maturity, on both ends to be like, can we have this conversation? I just don't think this is gonna work. But we're part of this whole big group and I hope that we can have that. Absolutely. And it's like you're at that point to where you're like, I don't need to have that conversation because everyone's an adult now. Everyone's over the age of 30, like everyone should just get the thing. But there are so many people that do not. Yes. And it's obscene that when you realize that the do not people kind of the majority. We'll also just, for me, you know, okay, so am I just going to like Dodge somebody's phone calls and emails? Or am I going to say, I don't think that I want to have a phone calls relationship with you? Just because that's not going to work for me, which felt like, oh, I think this is actually the kinder one to do. But was I sweaty? Yes. I'm splitting right now for something to happen in your path. When you're dating before that, well, so yeah. Talk to me about your you said when you were a kid you did you know what was going on? You said other people seem to treat you. Yeah, identifying your queerness from an early age. Did you know very, I did not be completely honest. I remember being like 1213 and being picked on for it. I also just had like a very high voice, like the stereotypical middle school bully gay kid things. And I just thought that's what that was. And I didn't think of it as anything sexual. And I don't think I can really came into my sexuality until I was maybe like 1718, like there was like a four or 5 year window of being like, I'm just being picked on for reasons to be picked on. So I came in late. I remember my mom came in one time was like, I need to ask you a question. And I was like, here we go. Are you gay? And I was like, well, I don't really like identify just yet. And the look on her face was very much like no, like that was worse than not knowing. Oh, wow. But those first my parents, by the way, are very supportive very loving and they're very like my mother I can tell when I was young that I was going to be a K man. And she made sure that I knew gay adults, like she very much like had coworkers who were gay so we'd all go out together and it was a lot of us and adults. I was like, oh, I see what you were doing. Wow. And I respect that so much. I got really lucky in that department. And I'm pretty sweet. Yeah, I mean, if your mom needs me to meet any lesbians, I'm available. I.

"With a really good bottle of champagne. And I'm fine with that at this point. I'm like, I'd rather be there than in the ICU. And that, too, is a blessing. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I moved this year on my birthday. Which is also very funny. Well, first of all, happy birthday. Happy birthday in advance. Thank you, but I moved this year. My birthday, which I've been looking, my girlfriend and I were living in two bedroom apartment, which many people are still doing that. But when all of our jobs became at home jobs, I was really thinking like, oh, this relationship is, is taking a lot of extra strain. I just don't know. And so who is looking for some options, you know, like, couldn't afford to buy a house in LA because that's LA. What? So it was like, okay, so and we really, it's like, it's really important for her to be close to major hospitals. You know, like the things that and it's really important to me to be vaguely near where I think there might eventually someday be? I don't know. Anyway, we found this really great option and it really felt like a magic trick because the person that was like, yeah, and actually it's available on October 17th and I was like, that's not a day that anything. Nobody's ever moved on October. So that's not one of the days. That's right. So I knew it was the right thing and we snapped it up and I moved on my birthday and that did feel like, well, congratulations me. You've really symbolized the fresh start to yourself. Pack it up. Open it up somewhere else. So I wish for you something that's less stressful than moving, but something that does feel like packing up the things that you want to take with you. Getting rid of the things that you don't. Yeah. And then opening up the new things in a new space. I love that. Yeah. Thank you. I'll accept it. Yeah. Absolutely. Well, this has been a wonderful conversation. I really appreciate your time. And I want to ask everybody to shout out a quero. Which is a person placer thing that made you feel that you can be who you are today. So I came prepared to do all things poly Murray because who the fuck would? Oh, my God. Yes. Yes. But I am actually so and I am going to shout out one of my first queer teachers whose name is Jane broads, and I believe she's now teaching at the University of Chicago. And in fact, a few years ago, she and I ran into each other after I hadn't seen her since probably 1999. Yeah, this was a person who. Really made it okay. And for me, I think so much of my experience of being queer was like it was a very white thing. So it was very powerful to me to have a black queer woman as a teacher. To hold space in such an incredible way. For someone like me. So that's my show up. In addition to Pauley, because why not? Yeah, I mean, that's stunning to hear that. I will just say that. You know, I have no idea when and if we will bump into each other again. So I will take advantage of this time to say, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work that you do. And for the work that you've done and it matters so much to me personally that you identify as queer and that you. Are somebody that's in my community. I mean, that is like..

"Yeah, I'm a 5 or 6, yeah. Often timess. You have time. It's so good. Even if I'm just laying in bed, I feel like, yeah, I'm up to greet the world, you know? I truly do. Yeah. Yeah. There's a lot of opportunity. And for some reason, all of that, I'm all of that opportunity feels like it. If it's 8 30, I'm like, the days already gone. But we didn't do it today. But there's already gone. That's right, that's right. Well, yeah, I appreciate all of that and I appreciate the, you know, yeah, water, bike rides. That's what it is. I moved and I live near I live really close to a public golf course. Oh, nice. And there's a driving range. I bought one shitty golf club. One crappy company. And I go at this time that we wake up. I go, I'm like the first person there. There's no one else there. Oh yeah. And I just hit a bunch of golf balls for no reason in one direction with absolutely no goal and no. There's no score to keep track of. And then I just leave. Also, I look very different than everybody else who goes to this golf club because each of them is a dude. There's not one, each is a dude. And how are they responding to you? Are they like, um, are you the specimen or? I think they may be. They do kind of leave me be, but there's like, there's like some buddies that go. And because it's a public golf course, not, it's not like a snotty. It's not exclusively the snobbiest white man you've ever seen, although are they there? Sure. But it's many different types of people, but zero absolutely zero, and I'm also always wearing like a Hawaiian shirt or something that looks more like I'm golfing than what they're great. I can't say I don't know what to do. I can't, and I can't. I shall not truly are like, all right, well, I mean, I guess she gets to go. What a lot more patients than I do. I'll just say that. Tell me why, because I just, yeah, I think the older I get the more crotchety I get and there's this things that I'm like, if I don't have to, I'm not going to. And that is an example of things that if I don't have to, I'm not going to. Well, I'm trying to stay I'm trying to stay sane without outdoor stuff. You know, and I hear you about I just have not been able to figure out a bike situation yet, but I gave mine up when I moved to LA because I had been a big cyclist in Chicago, but then I moved to LA and it was like, I felt like I was constantly going to be. Run down because it's just the traffic is so aggressive here. Drive a very nice sports car, very quickly at you. And so I gave that up and also I live with my partner is she has an autoimmune disease that really affects her energy level. So I'm used to sort of like partnering up with like jockey partners and then we like a part of our relationship is that we go do a bunch of stuff together. Sure. But we, first of all, I will say, Katie, my girlfriend is actually a big jock. She just doesn't she just doesn't have a bot that works like my bod. Yeah. So I do a lot of stuff solo or with friends, usually. But then now there's this pandemic. And so a running buddy or like going to dance classes or just going to dance classes with a bunch of friends, all that sort of has gone out the window. So yeah, I'm like, what can I do by myself? That is outside. Makes sense. It's kind of fun to try to figure out all the different things that fall in that category. That makes a ton of sense. You are a married person. I am a married person. Let's see what year are we in. Okay, it's 2020. We are shit. We are 12 years, married. This year. That is wild..

"Changed, like I said, is that people know you for the work that you do that they know the work that you do that they also kind of. Make you a symbol for the work that you do, which is totally weird. It's super, super weird. But that's the major thing that has changed. Everything else, I mean, nothing stays the same, but everything else has followed a consistent trajectory aside from that. Yeah, I hear you. I think then, you know, I would ask if you're willing to be even more specific because it really is that thing of so many people. Given that it's the largest global protest movement in history than that has to mean that many people were activated to be in the streets that had not previously been doing this. And that they might that you might get sort of a group of people who are the scale of how much a part of this is somebody's daily life is really a variable. You know, like there's the person who's going to every protest, there's a person who's going to one. There's the person who's like posting on social media. There's the person who's donating. Just to such a variable. So I don't know for somebody that is making a living and also making a lifestyle out of being an activist. What is the day to day like on that? I feel like it's probably a little different now because it's like what you're talking about. There's some celebrity or figurehead involved in it. But prior to Black Lives Matter, the movement when you were when you knew all of these other folks, what was your day to today? Like at that time. Well, let me start off just by saying just to get more specific. That activism is more than protesting. And there are a set of people who have been involved in organizing, which I think is also different from activism. And organizing is working for sustained change over time. And activism can often be a one time event. It can be engaging in a tactic like a protest or a letter writing campaign or, you know, you know, speaking during public comment at a city council meeting. I mean, these are all instances of activism. But organizing actually has a lot to do with building sustained relationships in order to affect sustained change. And when I say that a lot of us have been doing this work for a long time, sure, I've been going to rallies since I was like 12, but that's not the work. For me, the work has been about designing and running campaigns to change laws to change rules. To move money. So just to give some examples, I worked for ten years in an organization in San Francisco called people organized to when employment rates. And it was an organization that did a lot of anti gentrification work. It did a lot of economic justice work and one of the things that we were able to accomplish after a yearlong campaign was winning free transportation for young people in San Francisco. That's a law that's changing a law. And sure,.

"Rolled around. It wasn't. I mean, it wasn't my first rodeo in the first place, but that moment was like, okay, we have been doing this now for months. So if there was a calm that you experienced for me, I guarantee you that inside everything was going completely ballistic, but I think one of the things I've learned this year is just how to lean into uncertainty. And it's a muscle that I'm really glad that I'm building right now. I'll also just say quickly that for me, you know, I left Black Lives Matter in 2017. And I left to start the organization that I run now, the black futures lab and the black to the future action fund. Because I just kept having this needling about wanting to strengthen our ability to really be a player in electoral politics in such a way that doesn't water down our values or our vision. And so in a lot of ways, it was full circle for me to see this resurgence to know that we'd been there before to also know that this thing that I helped to build lives outside of me now. And so it was a weird place to kind of watch from afar and also be thrown back into the center of it, but know that, you know, and I talk to Patrice about this a lot this summer. We both knew that we had the tools to deal with it differently this time. The first time we didn't know what the hell we were doing. Yeah, I have so many follow-up questions. I have so many follow-up questions. Please. Yeah, because you use the word hour. So when you were saying, you're talking about black futures lab. You're talking about black to the future. That's right. That's what you're talking about. Your preparation. Where. You were when locked on was happening and then when the George Floyd protests happened months later. And also, just because I feel that at least this is my impression and I have no I'm very curious what your impression is. You know, I think that because the Internet was involved and then also because of the.

Well you know where i used to live. We lived over by. Bob hope house. Yeah and in a really nice party to luca lake and people would drive in there and so one year it was. It was really fun. I had a whole bunch of friends over and we just walked around because everyone had such a rich area and i'd like the shittiest place in the right area by the way make everyone it was. It was a condo literally like there's a condo and then an alley and then rich houses right so calm. Don't thank you so but every place would would decorate with like haunted house shit and have mazes and all that stuff so it was really fun as an adult like drinking out on the street and going through love drinking on the street drinking drinking drinking straight straight st. st.

"Are not just in our legislature but also in our homes right and to actually argue with mom and dad and say okay when you say these are biological men. Let me actually explain to you why that's messed up. And i explained this book kind of bite-size ways to have these conversations that are infused by history which i think is one of the biggest arguments for life which is that all of these gender norms are recent and were created in the west and as you actually care about you know a global majority of the world you think that you should look outside of their. You know literally tangible things that you can do to respond. So the first thing i really want people to do is to have courageous conversations when you are not speaking to transphobic in your life. They're speaking to us whether it's online in person or through policy and we need everyone to be having courageous conversations to actually educate people because ignorance is an organizing strategy and ignorance has been recruiting doing push ups for hundreds of years and now we need exercise. Intelligence and to exercise intelligence means. We don't shame people we can knock shame people for not knowing things. People do not know things because been organized into ignorance so we need to actually have compassionate conversations where we say. I'm sorry that your education system didn't teach you this but here's some things that are really important to me and it's important to frame it as important to you because so often people have conversations like it's important that we support insert minority group babe. It's also about the kind of world you wanna live event. There's no dignity living in a world. Where black transmitter being murdered. There's absolutely no dignity living in a world where transgender non conforming guests if being police out of the entertainment industry. Imagine how much better hollywood would be if there were actually more transgendering occupied people in it and you stories that keep doing remains because there's nothing more to say they've exhausted the binary. They've exhausted the straight story. We still seeing or short people. Fat people or people who agenda non-conforming they're a million stories out there haven't been samarasinghe that with all of the representation that white straight men have. They still don't know how today is that. You literally have a million movies. I've got zero. And i'm still figuring it out So with this book it's having conversations in the nineteen th second piece is about educating yourself on the status of trans rights where you are locally because oftentimes a lot of people only focus on the country level but a lot of these. Anti trans bills are happening at the local and state level so it's important to familiarize yourself with organizations that are working for trans rights in your local context and then reach out to those organizations and see what they could use support with during the pandemic a lot of trans young people right now are experiencing a lot of harassment and violence at home. So there's been some amazing initiatives that have been created to support transpeople. Because it's really important. Understand here i wanna. I really want this point to make it to people. When gay marriage got legalized in the united states. Many suspender straight people thought that was the end of the meteorites. Move and in fact a lot of gay white men out so too but what happened is that that's when they moved their focus in their to trans people in the united states and they started to be hundreds of antitrust legislation but all the funding went away because they were like. Oh we're done. It's over because this game. Oh owner. We've achieved equality. We don't really care about these other people. And so what happened was a movement that was being led by lacking and brown low income transgender non conforming people who didn't have access to the resources to actually resist any of these laws and you have largely under resource movement so for me. It's not it's not just about showing up for transpeople. symbolically is about thinking. How do we also give resources to transgender People how do we give economic opportunities because so many of us have been kicked out of education institutions have been kicked out of our career trajectories when we decided to declare our gender publicly. How do we actually think okay. I'm now creating new organization. I'm going to have an internship program specifically to build the leadership of trans people that paid the so many creative ways that we can help out transgender non-conforming people and i think it's really important now more than ever because this pandemic is going to worsen every inequality that there ever was and transgendered are good morning people were already struggling but are now going to be struggling even more. I know so many trans artists that are my peers. That like i artist anymore and it just breaks my heart because then like what the most brilliant people in the world deserve platforms but so often these people are ignored well beyond the gender binary. Alex book is available this week and i suggest everyone goes out and buys it and parents. This is a good book. feed to have Just in case your child needs that information for themselves or for their friends. I think that this is information.

Hbo max legendary and it's about the ballroom community which is predominantly people of color who are queer or trans or gender non conforming. And so i have to say. I have never in mind life ever witnessed so much love and compassion and strength and ride or die between a community even the one to arriving against each other even those who are battling to the emotional death for money who will plus shade each other and say horrific shit to each other in front of other people that will always end in tis a hug and a kiss and so much love because they haven't been able to rely on their own you know Families they've been born into so they've chosen their families and those bonds are stronger than anything.

That's why try to police this out because we're so powerful and were so magic that the way that we live could change the world. Imagine if people could be this vulnerable. Imagine if people could be this interdependent. it'd be people yes. If people didn't rely on their families of origins either only families learned that your friends can truly be your family. And your greatest love of your life and unmatched in that. And that's why. I try to reframe it to be like the reason they say this ironic thing happening where they say. You're an insignificant minority and yet they find millions of dollars to disappear us if we were so insignificant. Why would they be working so hard to exterminate us. It's because within our boats of living is a way out is a way out of everything that has led us to this crisis that we're in right now is a way out. That is loving and interdependent. I want to tell a story that l. straits this two weeks ago my best friends were all transcend on binary people color assembled zoom meeting for me to consult me on my life. They literally an intervention. We know just like just to check in like and they knew that this would be the best thing in the world for me. 'cause talk about feelings favorite thing and so we had zoom for two and a half hours where everyone's shared how they knew what they loved about me. What they are what they get frustrated about and then we process my life collectively and i was like. Should i be doing this. Should i do. This is my career. Which do my dating life. What should i do about this book. And then everyone escaping me really thoughtful feedback in was like. Hey let's debrief this afterwards. What comes up for you. I thought that. I got that on twitter all day every day from complete strangers. Who i have an oscar that from tell me their opinions on them on my life and why should be doing. I prefer at this time. Fucking life advice. I think that's great that you have that from people that you love is telling my mom on the phone. I was like mom you know this thing has happened. I've feeling so happy. Like i just love my friends so much i feel love and i what it's like to actually feel loved and my mom was like i'm so jealous that would have saved me from so many bad decisions in my life. If i could have counsel to actually be like. Hey everyone. I'm vicky about this. Is this what i need to be doing. And that for me is a testament to like yes. There are difficult in horrific things about living gender non conforming life but they're also incredible and beautiful things and these things don't even have to be a binary the joy about being. Nonbinary i can hold simultaneity. It's about both an is about. Yes i'm grieving. But i'm also loving. Yes i think that you messed up. But i also forgive you. Yes i think that you have room for growth. And i need you to have boundaries to me for a while but i also believe that in the future we might be able to be. Yeah and i think that we live in an extremely economists world right now for people are rehashing binary of us are good and bad or radical or complex set. And i'm like hey everyone these are not the lives that we actually live the lives. That we live are deeply contradictory. Lives their lives. That are deeply emotional their lives. That are deeply needy. Let's be honest about our need. Let's stop pretending that we don't need anyone else. A so true is so beautiful and trying to imagine a world in which we were all allowed to communicate and tell each other how we really feel like an honest world an honest world and an emotionally stable world which we would be if we had access to all those things you know. There's sometimes where i. I can't quite understand why we underfund mental health around the world like it's so severely under funded and there's a part of me that thinks at this point. We have enough information to know that it would benefit the gdp it would benefit the economy. It would benefit our wool avar working structures and systems in society for people to be happier and more mentally stable but we don't fund it and then there's the little tin hat conspiracy pasta me. That's like well. If everyone stays on happy and unsure and unstable than they are able to remain easily fair mangat than we can continue to push them like cattle into these different violin. Hard nothing so hard. It helps the people at the very very top with the darkest agendas so much for us to maintain chaos and for us to eat each other. Which i've been talking about with the whole rodham versus Turf versus gender non conforming versus trans ally etc etc etc. We're all just eating each other. We need to adopt this more loving and accepting way of life. It's the whole point of this podcast. Okay how do people because this is why you've written beyond the gender binary you've written this book as a i guess it's almost kind of a manual of sorts to those who would like to join in with this fight and ambi allies. Can you give us some nuggets of gold advice for those of us who wished to be allies and better supporters of not just gender non conforming people and trans people but also a better world absolutely so i wrote on the gender binary because so many people tell me that they genuinely support transgender knock could bring people but they just don't know what to do and what to say and they're having arguments with their families. Their family is just saying these horrific things but they don't know how to have rebuttals. And so what i wanted to be as kind of a handbook for people to go into hostile environments because there are so many and those also environments.

"Down the backs you'll stuck in a conflicting in constricting course in which you cannot believe and you pass out all the time because if someone isn't around to help you out of it you are stuck you're imprisoned in your own gown and all of the layers and their petticoats which slow you down so you can't run away. Let's not even get into heels. I'll fucking crazy. They are even though. I love that he feels i made for men who were writing or says and then became these objects right but the reason that behalf. These kind of stereotypical gendered fashion was to support the roles that women and men were designated to in society. And i think this goes to your point that oftentimes when we speak the binary. We're just focused on people's physical appearances. But it also has to do with our perceptions of competency women and the feminist movement have been challenging forever this sexist narrative that women can only be clerks or seamstresses or domestic workers. All these things are important in incredible careers but a woman can be whatever she wants. A same ways in which a man does not have to dislike top dog business. Dat like a band can also be a stay at home dad in that doesn't emasculate him but these kind of roles became situated as part of the kind of industrial enlightened new enlightenment society that we're just focused off of having babies and this is the point. I really want people to understand the reason that we have. Two genders is because dividing billions of people into one of two genders. That just conveniently be fit into this model that can make babies is because society values us more by our reproductive abilities than by our actual interests are actual dreams are actual passions defining womanhood by your ability to reproduce is the most saxons thing in the world because women should be able to do whatever they wanna do. Men should be able to like being in a marriage and having children as not achievement. Congratulations it's just something that you do. It's not something that we should be ingrained into feeling the only way that we're successful it'll said especially gone nothing Throwing up in an indian family. My sister always told your career doesn't matter what matters is your marriage ability and it doesn't really matter that you're getting an education right now because you're not even going to be working 'cause you're gonna be making and my sister and i have this in comment or we say. Hey we're protesting gender norms together because the same norm of women that policing you out that is telling you that you're to harry or that you don't have the right. Body is the same norm of womanhood. That has policing me out. And we're going to actually work together to develop ways of saying. Hey i'm me. And i get to determine what i do with my life where i work. What my interests are what. I wear your mythologies around gender are irrelevant and that once again the lessons to me of how we can all come together to say these gender binary norms are toxic. And they're not helping anyone and also it pains me. Whenever i see feminists people who claim to be feminists saying that the reason that trans women agenda non-conforming people cannot join in with our movement is because they don't menstruate they cannot carry babies. There'a so many sis women who for whatever reason don't mend straight and who cannot have babies or maybe don't have uteruses even from very young ages. This isn't something that just happened. You'll states and there's so many men and nonbinary people who also menstruate exactly lost an array. Exactly my point is is that that they are sitting there trying to protect this bubble not realizing that they're actually knocking sis. Members technically six people out of their own circle based on something that can easily stop happening to any typical sis. Woman it just. It doesn't it's so insensitive and ignorant. I honestly blows my mind. I in this day and age when we have this much information and we know. So much about oppression. We know so much about the emotional and societal. Impact of oppression and division. How is still so dedicated to being distracted by it. All of which benefit benefits the patriot. Okay i want to ask. Because i have two questions. One of them is because we hear so much about the downside and the painful side and the violence side of living in your truce as agenda non-conforming personal as trans. What are the glorious upsides. I'm so glad that you ask that question. Because so often people only engage transpeople through sis people's narrations of our lives. I love being trans. And i love being gender non conforming and i would never go any other way in my life because it has brought me so much joy so much piece so much presents for the majority of my life. There was a schism between who i knew my myself to be and what i could share with the world and haunted me in everything that i was doing in thinking. I was never able to be fully present. But now i'm fully present in my emotional and my emotional south my spiritual south cystic south that. I'm able to bring all of me to everything that i do. Which makes me funnier smarter. Able to think on my feet a lot more much. Yeah present loving compassionate there It's the opposite of disassociation. And i don't think we often have that language for what looks like because we only have the vocabulary often to describe when things are painful arduous. But what about when things are accelerating a new york and dynamic like i have developed some of the closest romances of my life with my friends. Other trans nonbinary. People who have given up everything of lost access to so much in this world but we love each other's so tenderly and so profoundly because we know what it's like to be hunted and what it's like to be hated. And when i say i use the them people say that's a plural pronoun and i say yes it is. Both singular ended his both plural. And that's what i need. When i say i am gender non conforming. I say me as a look. I'm dead inaugurate. But i'm also part of this dynamic ragamuffin group of people who are so loving that. I don't even need to know anything about them. But when i started touring in my early twenties i would just be crashing at other gender non conforming people's apartments across the world and i felt safe with them. They would coordinate my safety to in front my venues. They would arrange my like a lot of early gigs. They would literally arrange clothing for me in my room but community outsource together so that when i came i would have something to wear. That could feel proud of because a lot of issues facing the transmitting but one of them is baggage weight restrictions. Oh my god twenty pounds. Like how i cannot even put one. He'll in that. And so my community with literally crowdsource their close to come up with outfits that i could wear make eggs and i literally have performed in places like compiler. Uganda where from the minute. That i'm outside. I have trans lament. Making sure that i am safe. Tell me where to go where not to go. I've never felt more safe in my life than around transgender people. I don't think a lot of people ever have people that they can be. That vulnerable whip that they can share the deepest traumas of their life web. And i have been loved. And i wanna give that love to the world because my gender is the product of all the care and the love that i've experienced in my life it's not just my heroism or my strength. A lot of people be like look. How do you wage the battle against the gender binary every day. I'm like well. It's hard. And then i have people to process it.

"I trigger in them their own repression and it took a long time for me to realize that i was just angry. I was so upset. This is unfair. Like i want to be able to be free like i want to be able to just like you know like i wanna be able to just exist like walk around in public. Go to the bodega like i. Just wanna be and also just not selfishly but i wanted to have south because for so long in my life i was living other people's dreams for the first time i was like this is me and i was so excited to show the world. This is me. Look at the hard work i've put into this into have that rejected like whack a mole. They literally tried to disappear me. At first i was so angry. And i so hurt but then i took that rage and the anger and i brought it into my poetry and it started to write and write and write and what i found is that anger became compassion and that grief became love and i started to realize i love all of these men who are asked me more than they love themselves and my love is so tremendous because it is a historical love of trans politics that we have been here at the martin. Severe society's saying when you're ready to love yourself come to me when you're ready to stop policing your body's to fit into these arbitrary. Stereotypes come to me. And that is the legacy that. I learned from elder trans woman in new york. Who taught me halo. Your beautiful the parts of you. That people's shame you for your beautiful for the very things that you grew up hating about yourself and not ability to take the shame to take the grief to take the paint. Take the anger and to turn it into beauty. Philosophy city energy. Creativity down for me is how i survived. It's something that i wish. We would have more of his. Well take cue from that with the fact community and within the disabled community who are also in different and more insidious silent ways ostracized from all mainstream culture and society. And just open. It's open season in particular fat people. So i really feel that. I think it's an amazing philosophy that you've reached. Can you explain to me. The history of why we detest have on someone who isn't deemed infinitely masculine totally. So we were talking earlier about how different rhetoric are used to just basically high people sexism and one of those rhetoric is hygiene so a lot of times go blake the reason we remove our body hairs. Because more hygienic. And it's like actually like having body here allows my body to regulate sweat really. Well actually really great it. Was they stop stuff from getting into our family. Everyone's waxing everything around that bomb holds an average. I do what you need to do. You have your own body self-determination but i think it's important to understand where these ideas come. Yeah so actually. What happened in the united states. Was that body hair became racialized so there was a fear of immigration and early twentieth century from eastern european people jewish people from great people and a lot of white anglo-saxon people like we're gonna lose our dominance. We have to prove that we are the most beautiful the most advanced the most civilized people and so the question of white women's beauty became really important as part of proving the racial supremacy of the united states. And so what happened is body hair became likened to these immigrants and it became racialized and removing body. Hair became a way of being a good beautiful white woman and the narrative around beauty culture. At the time was men are fighting war abroad. Women are fighting war at home by being beautiful. So the way that you helped the nation was by being beautiful and being beautiful was about buying razors and actually removing your body and people fiery also related to you saying darwinism That actually this connotation of people who are hairy being something bad has to do with this racist social darwinism which believes that black and brown people are closer to animals like apes and that white people are closer to humans. So if you have body hair your somehow closer to animals and you're less human even though it's important to realize their plenty of white people with body hair plenty of brown people without body air and the same ways which there are plenty of ciswomen with body hair this assistant without body hair but this is just an example of how these stereotypes don't actually care about the reality of our bodies they're just literally made up to fit into a political agenda. The gender binary was made up in order to fit into a patriarchal agenda. It's not natural. It's a cultural political and social construction fascinating gonna have so much.

"And were challenging erasure. And so what's happening. Is that the entitlement of women is being challenged and for me transitionary. Feminism is just about people saying. I hate translator. Trans people that we would never say them. Just people who explicitly say i. I am a racist transit stationary feminists also the way that feminism defines patriarchy so mainstream feminism understands patriarchy as just men oppressing women but actually trans inclusive feminism understands that patriarch eat is the defining of the gender binary and the policing of one into gender norms. And so what that looks like is if you are a woman who seen as more muscular or has body hair you're seeing is manish and if you're a man who's seen his frail or emotional you're seen as gay or sensitive and everybody is policed into these gender stereotypes and gender norms of a man or what a woman is supposed to look like men and women are supposed to be distinctly opposites like if you're feminine than there could be no ounce of masculinity in you and if you're masculine even liking co play is seen as you being feminine and so less so ridiculous so a trans inclusive feminism says is. We're trying to challenge gender norms. So that every person can self determine their own gender. And i think a lot of feminists don't understand that what gender self-determination looks like is that we're trying to create a world where everyone can safely express who they are without fear of violence and for me and twenty twenty. I can't even go outside. Without fearing violence so to hear these gender critical feminists say that we have all this magical power unlike sweetie give me that power. Give me that power people throwing trash on me on the street. Give me that power with where my entire career. I've had to fight tooth and nail to even be listened to because people just want to gawk at me. Give me that power whenever actually. What's what's happening in this country. Right now is that there are hundreds of pieces of anti anti-trust legislation trying to disappear trans people from existing in public spaces being used in justified in the name of feminism. Why isn't mainstream. Feminism saying anti trans discrimination. Her family anti-feminist. Feminism actually supports trans people. But it's only trans people even know about these bills. It's only trans people who know that six women were murdered and house five weeks. It's only trans people. Who know that in idaho. They pass to unconstitutional bills. That are literally trying to define us out of existence. Why is it only un. It's because we're seeing disposable. And what i'm trying to do with my work actually challenged that Trans women transcendent. People don't just belong in feminism but feminism needs to listen to us as leaders were not just trying to be ornamental. We're trying to be instrumental. I agree. I wanna clap. Just like what i think it's great and also we think about how harmful the binary we don't think about. You know we look at binary in such kind of costume way of dress though how they do their make or whatever what their body type looks like. No one talks enough. And i tried to talk about this all the time in particular in sympathy to men of what patriarchy feels like and what binary has closed off into you know and it's something that has her me and so many of the people. I love the most so much these these standards that were supposed to live up to emotionally. You know i'm not supposed to express myself or else i'm aggressive and i'm hysterical and i'm bossy and i'm nasty and i'm rude and i'm difficult and at the same time. My boyfriend releases a beautiful love songs that are about his own feelings and his sensitivity and he gets called sad boy music and mocked and ridiculed over that. and this. this is a whole genera frank. Ocean's in this genre like all kinds of people Most of my male friends have got severe mental illness now in no small part down to the fact that they have never been told that it is okay for them to express themselves in any way other than explicit violence. The not allowed to cry the not allowed to say they feel sad or heartbroken or lonely. Rejected they just swallow it and it's killing them. We have the highest numbers of male suicide of all time young young male suicide. And just it's these setups these standards that are so modern in the history of time. Which i'm going to get you to explain to us. just modern. They are in a second. They have forced us conform to something that may not naturally be who we are emotionally. It's so unfair to be forced into these categories and we have no idea who really are. We can't have the argument of nature and nurture when we have been conditioned from the second. We're given like a pink onesie to wear from the minute we a- born and every the first thing we see on television as princesses and prince and the prince comes to rescue the the weak and lonely and desperate print says we are conditioned by our mothers by our fathers by everything. We see out in the world by all clothes by art by media. So how the fuck any of us going to know who we actually are. How can we when we've been blacks soaked in gender rules. I think it's a constant process of self reflection and learning. Yeah and we believe so that we in the in the hopes that we will not be bullied. I am i remember. You wants discussing the fact that there was one boy in particular who bullied you at school and Bullied you really badly throughout school and recently you got a message from them on social media. Will you tell me about that message. Yeah totally. I got a message from them saying. I'm really sorry that. I rented you in high school. The truth is actually bisexual. And i couldn't name it at the time and i saw you and i felt like i believe you. Then people wouldn't think that. I was queer to and that i could get away with just being perceived a straight and it was a real moment for me because that is exactly what my work is about is about believing that oftentimes the reason people are harassing me is because they are scared or they're lonely or they don't have enough love or care and so. I responded nights to thank you so much for letting me know that. I love you and i support you and i'm so happy that you're out in your part of my community in this way you see that so often the amount of time that we see a legislator who is fiercely anti-gay rights. It turns out that they all gay and they've been called with a young gay person in a sex act is so it's it's such an age old story. It's so easily identify identifiable you know not in all cases but with so many cases where web someone bully someone because they see something of themselves in that other person and they're afraid of it and they think by beating you they will be out of themselves to it's an emotional statement for them and it's pathetic and what makes transmissibility so lethal miss because men have beat out their own seminary in themselves So that when they see someone who looks like me who they're often reading as a feminine man. They see a possibility of what they could have been if they didn't torment and so they externalize the violence. They've done themselves on me. And it took me a long time to realize that. Because at first when i first to new york city and i was wearing skirts and dresses every day that that first few years with some of the most petrifying of my life it was heartbreaking. Because it's a young person. I dream that one day. I would be able to move to a city like new york and i'd be safe and included accepted. Have you wear what i wanted. And then there. I was as as a young adult not able to and petrified and terrified and i had to realize a wait. This is going to be the rest of my life. There's never going to be a moment where. I don't feel persecuted where my safety is being challenged because other people haven't actually done their own healing work around gender so that.

I'm still recovering from all of the unbelievably traumatic things that you had said in front of you as a child about your own identity or people who had an identity that you have to that you were covering up for safety for literal survival We just started touching on the way that the feminist movement has chosen to exclude trans and gender non conforming people. This is something that i have become aware of More and more as my feminism has become more i guess a monotone or more globally circulated. I have become because. I'm a very outspoken. Trans ally And ally for those who consider themselves who are non binary gender conforming. I've become like a lightning. Rod where feminists rad feminists is what they call themselves often. Trans exclusionary rod feminists radical feminist. So if you see the word on social media tough that's what it means. Trans exclusionary radical feminists. They have stopped to turn on me and consistently harass me because they consider me a traitor to feminism for aligning myself with trans people gender non-conforming people. I cannot understand their problem. I genuinely i can't even i've i'm a practical and relatively bright person and it makes no sense to me because for starters why would we ever deny ourselves more allies part of us that we're winning this war. What part of us. That things are going great for us. Why would we ever shut the door on human beings who want to join us and fight for all right soup and fighting for our rights. Long before we were even able to At the forefront of so many big movements that have liberated women have been trans women right and so the sense to me especially considering how much we know how oppressed we all. We know what it feels like to be consistently bullied harassed and pushed into corners. Why would we ever take that and subject someone else to that so i wonder if you can possibly shed some light on why i what are. They called gender critical and toughs. Their problem is right. I want us to begin by saying it's not even that trans women are allies. It's a trans women are women. Yes and so what happens is we would never call say a woman with a disability and allied to the women's movement. What happens is that we understand trans people as something separate than women and let me give an example to illustrate that so during women's history month i often speak about the need for trans inclusive. Feminism and i have trans exclusionary feminists say stick to pride. That's your mum. Sitting there. Wait are you presuming that. All women are sis gender and heterosexual. You are and this is the problem. With contemporary feminism. The experiences of white middle-class sis gender straight women are taken as the default experience for all women all across the world so the way that they define patriarchy and the way that they experienced violation from patriarchy a standardized as the only form patriarchy and. That's what sis and white privilege is able to take your particular experiences and say that's the only experience but actually there are many experiences of patriarchy and trans women and trans famine and people like me experience something called trans bassani and what transfer sashi looks like is the constant scrutiny of our bodies. As if there's something fundamentally wrong with us and not that there's something fundamentally wrong with a binary gender system so what that looks like is in my career every interview. I do every room. I'm in people are literally just gawking at me. They can't even listen to what i'm saying. There's an obsession with my body. I see people looking at my genitalia trying to figure out. I have people commenting lewdly about everything everywhere i go. I'm hyper sexualize. Or i'm hyper de sexualize. I'm seeing as an animal and all of that translates optioning. Where i'm not even able to speak in the room because people just wanna put me as the evening entertainment. That's what transportation as you imagine us as this on your on your on your drag shows. You don't actually imagine us in your boardrooms. You don't actually imagine us on your tv shows. Don't imagine you're subways. Transplant surgeons about policing us so that you never see us. So what happens is so often people will say transplant and transgender people. This is a new critique. This is neil. you're just new and it's actually. We've been here since the very beginning. It's just that you hit us. You kept us away. And now we're building our collective power.

"On apart. Yeah you totally checked out. I'm so sorry that that was your experience. And i think it's so wonderful. The at the young age of what was it eighteen. You decided that sit done. I'm coming out with was that. What was that turning point for you where you were sick of trying to conform where the pain of lying not only to your it makes you feel so detached lying about who it is that you are because you're not just lying to everyone else. You're also being dishonest and unintentional to yourself and almost creates this like moat. Between you and yourself where you just feel so incredibly detached. I think that's why the depression comes from that. You'll ally and if photo leo's bad. I think that even the other layer is that i was experienced so much i was experiencing such bullying and harassment. And i couldn't speak about that too so not only did i have to deal with my eyes. Why couldn't you speak about your Because i knew that. If i spoke about what was happening to me it would out me and create more violence. So what would happen at a high school like mine. We're talking about like suburban texas is. You would hear a suicide of a kid in school and you know that it was because they're being bullied for being gay or trans but no one would speak about it though counselors but talk about it. There was no literature at all. Even speak about it and you just kind of went along with your day and you constantly thought. I'm going to be that kid either. They're going to kill me. Or i'm gonna kill myself and that's what i genuinely believed the majority of my life. No one should have to grow up a constant fear. That people are just gonna show up at your house. Burn it down because you are faggot. And that's what. I fundamentally believe such that. It wasn't just about lying. In terms of language it was lying in terms of. I would change the way that i walked. And then i moved deepened my voice. I would pretend to not liked things. Like i remember when i was in fifth grade when i said i liked the band cold play. Someone said that makes you gay and gay. People need to be exterminated on island away from society they won't infect people with aids like literally like when i was nine ninth grade. I went to a camp where we were doing. Like a mock kind of government structure and one of the policies that someone proposed was state execution of gay people as if it was like armageddon style in a gladiator ring where you could all watch as you saw them be killed right and so that's why i get really irritated when people say well you know. Trans people have mailed privledge because they grew up being socializes. Now being socialized as mail for me was constant. Violence harassment's threats to my safety was literally me never using the restroom. Me fearing being around boys that every single moment of my life me being shamed for every single apartment even have been friends with girls was seen as being gay which is ridiculous. And so i think that i actually when i was eighteen i was strategic because i hate how he call young. Lgbt kids closet. I think a lot of our strategic we know that if we disclose who we are will experience more persecution. Because there's no resources because there's no community centers because there's no housing for our parents kick us out because there's no employment opportunities and so a lot of our strategic tries to be belichick currently during a bloody pandemic trying to take away their right to have healthcare totally and that's why i don't shame transpeople for not being visible because for me it's like. Hey actually you do what you need to do to survive. And i don't judge you. I don't think that being visible as more authentic. And that's i think it's very dangerous when we say so and so doesn't look trans. What does that even mean. People are trans and for some people. They may not have the money. They may not have the family support. The safety islas able to come out when i was eighteen. Because i knew that my family would support me. And because i worked really hard in school so that i could leave to go away for university and that was my plan. I studied so hard. Because i said i am going to get out of here in a minute. I'm out of here. I'm an fight like how to make sure that no one else had to go through what i went through and so i like to say i didn't just come out as gay. Those only word. I had at the time i knew that there. Something different around me. Interests may gender. But it's didn't even know trans or non binary was but i also committed to myself to deliver feminist life and i would just tell everyone people what you wanna do in college. I was like. I'm going to study feminism and i'm gonna fight for women and i dislike everywhere i went was talking about sexism and patriarchy. And that's why it's so painful for me. Jamila to see how the feminist movement by and large has not reciprocated that love and commitment to transgender non conforming. People because me declaring might transforming in a d came from my mom declaring her own autonomy as a woman. I saw my grandmother a very traditional hindu. Indian woman start to paint when her late seventies when she had never painted before and it will go up to her and ask grandma. Why are you paying too your ninety wire painting and she would say to me. This is all my repressed rage. My entire life. I could never say anything. I just was expected to be docile and cook and clean. My art is the only place i've ever had to express yourself. Never let anyone not let you express yourself and those lessons those intergenerational lessons of women emancipating themselves from gender norms taught me that i too could emancipate myself from gender norms and to see six women feminists not understand how self determination of gender is an extension.

"Who don't live. Let's just break it down totally so nonbinary refers to anyone who identifies outside of the binary of man woman male female so they're many identities under the umbrella of non binary a non binary person could be bijender being that they're both a man and a woman they could be a gender meaning that they don't have a gender they could be gender fluid like me meaning that my gender shifts on time and space and isn't fixed into an identity and it's important understand that there's as many ways to be non binary as there are non binary people we would never assume that all women look the same. We understand that some ciswomen like wearing these clothes. Some women don't would never wear a gown and prefer pantsuit assists woman wearing a pantsuit doesn't invalidate or womanhood but for us as non binary people because people fundamentally think that we're it up and because people think that we're not real every day is kind of like an examination on trying to reveal us to be frauds so so many times. Our detractors will share photos of us prior to us identifying non. It'd be like see. Look they're really a man and it's like no actually. We're allowed to look like what we want to look like in the same way people are and what is it. Would you say that made you uncomfortable with into either of the binary his what is it about either and i say this from a place of no judgement whatsoever. I just would like to know your personal experience so a lot of people. Ask me how. I became such good performer. Which i am. And it's because i spent the first eighteen years of my life pretending to be a straight man and i was really. I was kind of amazing at it but also really bad at it so it was like both traffic and traffic. It's quite funny. That reminds us. How the american actors sometimes complain about english actors coming over and take taking all that jobs and the reason that the british make quite good actors is. Because we've been lying that we've been happy for on time because we've been told to cover up about depression. Drink it down with a pint of bed stiff upper lip so what that means. I genuinely. i'd never had acting lessons for the good place. And i genuinely think the fact that i cover down. I covered up a nervous breakdown. Flute twin raise. how acts just pretending defines. Hey just picked up on. All the cues like okay. They do this do this. And so i was incredibly unhappy growing up like i suffered from extreme depression. Extreme sadness and suicide -ality. I never even use the men's restroom once high school i would literally hold it from seven in the morning until six. Pm at night. Because i was petrified of being around other men. men terrified me. Because i was still very effeminate and so no matter how much i tried to like. Wear the ugliest tattered Jeans abercrombie and fitch secondhand. Polo's a banana. I never fit in because my voice betrayed me because my gestures betrayed. And so i never allowed any video recordings a hated being in photos added when any audio recordings because i really wanted to everyone to believe that i was a straight man. Let's let's go back a second because there's a reason that you started trying to fit in with typical in the aesthetic right. You grew up with superfeminist family members. Your mother feminist organizer. I believe your grandmother as well as well. You'll aunt aunt your aunt that was it and these are avid feminists and people who advocate against domestic violence. And you grew up with lots of sisters in a very strong female background. And i won't you please tell the audience about what you like. As a little child. I was the definition of freedom as a child so i had a very unique experience because my mom was an indian feminist and my aunt was a major lesbian feminist so i grew up around lesbian. Feminism which. I just wish every child being around agree because my aunt would literally play video games with me immature the like strongest bad assets in l. characters and be like look women are strong women kick ass like a young age. I was indoctrinated into like anyone doubting womanhood or women. As less than they were a patriarch. And i knew at patriarchy was and i knew specifically what patriarchy looked liked an indian communities which is often very unique because we have a simultaneous adoration of women. Like my mom is the best person in the world. She cooks the best furiani in the wealth and then privately they experience a lot of harassment and violence right and so as a child. I loved my sister more than anyone else in the world. She was everything to me. And so i just naturally wanted to wear her clothes because i loved her and because i bought her clothes were just cuter. Floral prints neon colors. I was giving you very eighties. Children fashion like i was just about color i had. These dolphins sandals with a knee high socks. I was really into it and my parents. Just let me wear whatever i wanted and i actually used to perform in a write about this in my book beyond the gender binary. I used to perform in kind of my mom's tunisian salvar to the latest bollywood songs at all the indian potluck dinner parties that we would host at our house. I would say okay now. everyone Song and i just made this dramatic entrance. I'd just be dancing around. Doing my interpretive. Dancing and everyone cheered for me because i was a kid and they thought it was cute and they thought that i just love my sister and it was not a problem but then one of the incidents is at about my book as well as in first grade at a talent show at my very conservative christian kind of community school i performed an interpretive number two i love my india and i'm dancing around the stage during somersaults like just so free and the entire auditorium parents and children laugh at me and i remember that in the first moment experience. Shame in my life. Where the things that i thought were the most beautiful. Where the most thrilling where. The most finding expressive. I learned that those were wrong and not just that. What i was doing was wrong. I as a person was wrong. And that's what shame does is it actually makes your behavior into your person hood and so when i felt like i was wrong i just i lost all of my joy my creative expression. My dynamics zm. And i tried as aggressively as possible to be unremarkable into be invisible and that was the moment. Disassociation started in my life so the first of half of my life. I was not there. I gave everyone what they wanted to see. Like an extremely smart while learning thoughtful kind percent and inside i felt extreme. Turmoil everyday felt so much pain and anguish. Because i could never be honest about what i actually felt And i think. I'm still recovering from that. Because when you spend so many years in your formative years disappear anger south still to this day when people talk about me growing up. It's like they're talking about a character a novel or they're talking about a stranger. I see photos of myself and they feel nostalgic. But i don't look at that. And i don't see myself i just feel like i was checked.

"Know. I want to say that. It's actually been the most creative life. And i feel like such an irritable person saying that because i'm just so productive and i hate that about myself. I wanna be able to just relax and chill. But instead. I'm like reading tons of books writing a lot and i feel like it's not going to be sustainable. Those better not be otherwise. We're not gonna be able to be friends because i can't handle handled that level of over achievement. How day day you be constructed with this time just growing spiritually. You're feeling emotional. I'm that obnoxious friend on the phone just being like can we please name our intentions for the rest of our life like what's our five year plan. Let's go. what would you like at school. You this much of a nerd. Yes absolutely. I literally have to admit. This is the first smith May i used to make pie charts on how many hours i was hanging out ours working. How many hours. I was organizing. How many hours sleeping and try to get my optimum distribution of time. Such an indian. I'm i'm a rotten pob the pack. I'm the runs. I don't have any. I don't have any of these skill sets well. Good food needs to learn how to relax a lot more. That's part of my goals to as i've been watching ninety day fiance's five years late the show but it's the first time in my life. I fully understood what binge-watching was well. You've been really busy. I have watched your career just grow and grow and grow as an activist as a writer as an artist and just as such a voice of resonance in our time of the last couple of years. Also i wonder and this is more serious note. But quite a few of my friends who are trends or gender non conforming. Visibly obviously have found this to be a nice respite because going out day today while important because it's great to be able to socialize. It's also not very safe. It doesn't feel very safe as i've been your experience. Yes you know what i'm doing. During quarantine as an wearing miniskirts and body dresses and like my entire body is just basic revealed. Because for the first time. I don't have to fear harassment on the day to day and he's are obviously pieces that i would wear still men. I would wear them knowing that i was going to be harassed and being able to wear them and develop a relationship with my own self image without fear. I think it's been so therapeutic for me to show. What is your harassment. Look like in my asking. No totally i. I think it's really important to talk about the specificity of harassment against gender non conforming people because oftentimes dialogues respite. We imagine it only to be ciswomen experiencing crossman from sis madden but when you're a gender non conforming person you experienced harassment from everybody. It's knee l- opportunity buffet and everyone is trying to hit at the if you will. So i literally have people spitting on me throwing trash it me commenting on what i wear taking photos me. Without my consent following me Making fun of me. Enquiring about genitalia. Inquiring about wyan wearing what i wear. I literally have complete strangers. Come up to me and say. Can you explain to me why you dress like this. And i'm like oh my gosh i have. People touched me like they'll just hug me even when they're saying that they're supportive of me. There's this idea that. Because i transgressed gender norms. I'm not allowed to have boundaries at all so people can transgress whatever boundaries with me so we will come into. Kiss me all over my face and say you're fabulous. Darling hug me and squeeze fan. Like i'm literally just trying to get to a meeting right now. This is not a performance for you. And i think that what has really taught me is people. Don't see us as humans. They see us as spectacular kind of freak shows for entertainment. And that's both people who are supportive of us and people who are trying to bring us down. Can you see me as like regular person living a regular life and not someone here for your entertainment and do you violence when you go out and particular night etcetera yes. I have to be really intentional about where i'm going when i'm going who i'm going with who. I communicate Where i'll be. I share my location with my friends all the time. And we've developed a kind of practice. A lot of my friends are other gender non conforming people of color and what we've learned is like we can't rely on other people to keep us safe to keep each other safe so we share a location we check in with each other. We're getting home and we also process like what was it like for you to wear that outfit today. And i think that's how i am to keep going is when i was younger. I didn't have anyone to process the harassment. I was going through that now. I have a vibrant community. That's like that's awful. I'm sorry you're amazing. And i think what's frustrating as well as that you have so many people who then blame you for your own harassment based on what you're wearing which is something that you know typically says women have to deal with the time if we are salted or harassed in the street. We're all what will we wearing. And i feel you get that from every single side of the fact that will you chose to where you show swear address and also you visually technically conform to either side which perfectly stand in line with your gender non conforming in the fact that you still maintain your chest hair or sometimes have a bid but also you wear the dresses and the makeup and. I think that you look stunning. For whatever it's worth but because of that like an extra layer then where perhaps even trans people sometimes don't know what to do with that. Absolutely you know what. I think that one of the most painful parts of being gender non conforming is we have been fighting for everyone since the very beginning and yet everyone turns around and betrays us and says that we're too much or not enough. They'll say you're too flamboyant. You're too feminine. Your to hairier to brown your to vocal. Or they'll say you don't pass enough or you're not beautiful enough or you're not quite enough. And it's heartbreaking to me. Because i realized that it's other people working out the lessons around beauty around desire around worth that have been indoctrinated into them out on me. So they're just regurgitating exactly what has been said to them to me and emily wasn't that painful for you. Why would you do the same thing to someone else. And so i think a lot of what i'm trying to work through as an artist is how do we transform pain so that we don't transmit it to other people and how do we actually recognize that we have to heal before we can actually love other people in the way that they deserve to be loved. We don't heal. We actually can be very dangerous to other people. And i see this especially when it comes to trans community. You know when. I first started to become part of trans community. I was in my early twenties. Because i didn't have access to trans community before them and i would start to attend transports groups. As wearing a dress. People would think that i was a quote pre op. Trans woman is the term that they use and they would say oh. Are you going to change your name. would me. She and they'd be like my sister. And i'd be like. Hey everyone actually like i feel comfortable with who i am right now and then people would be like while actually no You have to change your name. You have to have surgery you have to have hormones. Otherwise you're going to continue to experience violence. And i'd be like i totally understand that i recognize that like a lot of us are having to be worried about violence every day but i actually feel like who i am right now is by wanna be and they wouldn't understand that and then i would come to a meeting wearing a pair of jeans and they would call me. He in think that i was just a male ally and there was just no space to actually be like. Hey everyone my gender is who. I am not what i look like. My gender expression is something that i do on the basis of what i'm feeling in a given day but my gender identity is internally what i know myself to be. So what exactly is non binary for those.

The Worst Video Game Launches In History

"Fallout seventy six. And what makes while it's seventy six so interesting is I i actually really like fought seventy-six like i really really enjoyed that game. I know that it was bare. And i know this story was kind of like i. I was kinda lean like going through and finding like all the different audio clips and stuff before they started adding in other stuff And i know that they kind of made it conveniently based around just like the story of the game like. Hey you're the first ones out like it's kind of it's kind of bullshit like i mean you kind of know that they weren't really i guess planning that from the beginning but anyway there was just there was so much that happened when that game launched and the first part of it that i find really interesting is that people were mainly upset with fall out seventy six when it came out because it was exactly what they thought it was gonna be yet and you know what the backlash on that game started even before the game came out to if you remember when the beta released there was a ton of issues with the beta because apparently it was only playable certain time i for certain periods of the day certain times i think that there is an issue where the beta would not let you uninstall it when you're done with it and i think if i remember correctly too i think didn't something crash where you had to re download it again like so people remember that and then know whatever it was. They had to rerelease the download because was corrupted. I don't know if that's exactly what it was. But something caused you to have to retaliate again. And it's not a small game. No yeah. I mean internet these days you know. Most people have pretty high speed. But this i mean this game came out three years ago. I wanna say at that point so it's kind of funny that leading up. You knew that game was just going to be a giant mess and we bought it because we like fall out and it was okay. I don't know that it was as bad as everybody made it out to be but it definitely wasn't good I didn't buy into that story at all about no. Mpc's it's ridiculous center. They tried to sell that so hard. They're like yeah but in this world there are no mpc's and it's like okay. I don't want this isn't story. I wanna i wanna follow like it's uninteresting. The robots because like that the best thing with fallout is like the different factions. And the people you meet you need that it just got boring. That's why we stopped playing is because we were doing. These quests but every quest was like go here scan if you things download things and read. That was the other thing is is because there is no embassy story was told via like notes and things you discover and i don't wanna do. That wasn't fun. So i think we just stopped because it's just really boring. Well it's funny that you mentioned that. Because i was. I was talking to kim earlier. And i was like. Why did we stop playing fall at seventy six. And she's like there is a main story mission where we had to kill somebody but they're already so we couldn't couldn't advance so i mean we just kind of shrug shoulders and that was that i had seen enough. I was like this is not doing it for me. This is not fallout. It's not it was literally felt like a gain. A totally different game with like a fallout skin. And if you remember you remember the other thing too so do you remember the collector's edition for that game. I do have this written down to think. They got sued instantly because one of the things they had was they advertised. This like this bag. It was supposedly a messenger bag. Yeah and the images that they would show it look like it would be a high quality bag. Have you got limited edition. Which i think was like three hundred dollars. Yes i think. Yeah they got this tiny like little plastic. I can't even call it a bag. You couldn't use it all and people were like what the fuck what is this. It wasn't even funny people like angry. Like what is this. Give me my money back. And yeah they got. They got sued and they had to actually recall it and they had to I had that a district preorder wound up cancelling it. But what i remember getting these emails. Is they You had a form and they had to produce the actual bag that they were gonna make any told you. Hey we'll probably have this in like six months or so. I think that's what it was. I got one ship to me like months and it was still a piece of crap back. It was awful. It was slightly better than i. Guess the one that people had gotten i ever got the original bags. Cancel the preorder. But i did get the replacement bag. I guess because they had a priori file but total mess from start to finish. What makes it even funnier. Is that when they were trying to correct that wrong. They ended up dachshund like everyone that put him a support ticket on their website. So it's like how our best as fallen and just sad todd house. We deserve better. That's the thing though it's like okay. So the game has bugs. But it's really redundant because it's a pathetic game so it's like you know what you expect when when you get it but it's just hilarious that all this other crap happened after the fact is just it blows my mind looking back at that i. It's just insane. And what's what's odd about fought seventy six is that it actually got like a redemption story arc. They added more concert and people said the games. Now so it's it's just hilarious. It's so hilarious. We've been talking about going back and playing it because we never played it after The update the major update. So yeah i mean maybe we can have a redemption You know maybe we can follow up and and Confirm or deny it actually is a good game now but yeah i've heard the same thing with the updates. It's actually pretty playable. I'm pretty enjoyable. Yeah have like a battle royale mode in there too. I think which is kind of you remember. I did want to play that. I remember when they showed the trailer for that. And that did. I was like okay

"Via data a favorite dessert from the ninety s from the nineties. I'll is coming back so we have brought on lead social media manager at mussa to talk us through it. Welcome to the show adam low. I'm so happy to be back and talking about something that's so so near and dear to my heart so for those who do not now explain what is being at us or via neta is Basically an ice cream cake. It's in a loaf shape and it's known for its signature ruffled. Look on the edges The classic one is made simply of vanilla ice cream and chocolate like magic. Shell chocolate And that's that's it. That's it's it's a chocolate and vanilla ice cream cake is the most straightforward and also Infancy way to talk about something that is famous for being quote unquote fancy. So when you say something is is back. Has it been rereleased or is it one of those things where it's like now cool again is being Rerelease after being. I believe it was discontinued sometime in the late nineties Although in my research for this i could not nail down a specific year When it was taken away so Vienna is owned by unilever like the international ice cream. Conglomerate and vienna is has been sold in markets all around the world for years. It's only in the us while most famously in the us that it has seen discontinued for the better part of twenty years. That's awesome was hurt. It's back yes but It's it has been continuously available in the markets this entire time. So why do so. Was this a huge moment online and like who who who was. Who's freaking out about this. Okay everybody was freaking out about. This is the is the most distinct way i can put it. Mostly millennials is. The best is probably the best description. I would refer back to what my colleague john said when she wrote this up She was talking about how this is. This is a desert that was widely available when we were kids and something she mentioned that was also like hundreds of people who are sharing. The story about this is When people saw this in their freezer they knew that they were going to have guests was something you serve. People saw the fact that that everybody remembers it but it's been gone for so long Created dislike nostalgia bomb that went off. The thing is it's like i said it's chocolate vinyl. it's certainly not Some exquisite flavorful creation. It's it's so much in the style of this thing with the way it's the the edges are ruffled and lay it on aso layers of chocolate and vanilla We actually had Sir on ada. From a few years ago we had a post about video that was filmed inside the vienna factory in I think i think it's in portugal. Where it's it's the assembly line basically and it's just the machines shooting ribbons of vanilla ice cream and chocolate and then slicing them Chopping them into the lowest that they get sold in and then packaging them. It's like he's the assembly line of how it's done. That post has in the entire time. I've worked continuously like made people Crazy when they see it everybody sees it and they wanna share somebody else. they're like. Hey remember eating this so yes long way of saying yes. There was a tremendous nostalgia about this. That honestly has been very obvious. This was going to happen whenever they brought the annetta back. So it's really just very surprising that they haven't brought it back before this because the potential for nostalgic marketing in a product. Like this has been there for for all this time. They were saving it for when the world needed at the most.

Bring on the snack cake cereal

Bring on the snack cake cereal

"Welcome to the Empty Bowl might name is Justin mcelroy and I am a serial enthusiast. My name is Dan Gilbert and I am a serial ethnographer in the sense that I know the cereal culture in the overall breakfast. Zeitgeist well enough to understand the impact of some of the stories we're about to talk about today. that's. So exciting we have so much going on this first news story Dan. I have to tell you. I'm thrilled over here over on this end. I mean it's huge. It's absolutely. Substantial. So. When you write about serial for five years I have inevitably you end up seeing some of the same things again and again, and one of the easiest things to do when you're reading about serial is to tell the world about the weirdly specific cereals that you've always wanted to see on shelves and for me Besides gingerbread toast crunch I think the second most idea of cereal I've ever had would be a little. OATMEAL, cream pies cereal, and now we must wait no more as Kellogg's has partnered with the snack brand to bring oatmeal cream pie cereal two shelves later this year. What's IT GONNA look like? So so from appearance alone, it doesn't necessarily look like the sort of sandwiched cream, an oatmeal cookie. Snack cake that you're familiar with It looks more like a brown oatmeal ring cereal, which is fine. I'm not really in this for appearances so much as the legacy of the snack taking question. You say, what did you say that the cream pie is your favorite little w product It's up there with cosmic Brownie alum that plastic chocolate on a on a cosmic Brownie I used to get star crunches a lot when I was a kid in my lunch bag but I don't like those so I don't know why I felt the need to tell you that but. You know it the for me. I'd say it's a three way tie between the oatmeal Cream Pie the double decker oatmeal cream pies. Distinct feast and the fudge around, which is essentially just a chocolate oatmeal cream by but overall I, think the oatmeal cream pies and amazing snack product. It's probably my go-to whenever I am Matt a gas station stopped long road trip. So I'm very very excited to see it come serial form. Especially, it's going to be a thin line to walk to get that exact flavor because as I, discovered recently. Raisins are in the battle of the bill cream pie. It's sink. Yes. Yes. Yes. Raisins in the OATMEAL cream. Pie. So that's why like you get that like is what gives it its distinct flavor is that there's raisins mixed into into the batter period into the better so. That will be a tricky flavor to to nail. Think I'm really hoping that mine is not the only mind that you've blown with this revelation right here because I did not know that at all I mean. meanwhile, I was just hoping that this is an actual oath based serial rather than some some sort of corn contraption because I think it'd be really an authentic otherwise but. I think my favorite thing about the story overall is how you just know that someone at Kellogg's saw post team up with hostess to drop the sort of twinkies, etcetera cereals, and immediately thought. Get Little Debbie on the horn. We're not going to stand for this sort of force that cooperation to happen. Yeah, it's funny that you mentioned cosmic brownies actually because when the story first broke before, it became official from Kellogg's themselves There was a youtube video of someone reviewing the little debbie cereal or oatmeal cream pies cereal before anyone knew about it and they were also reviewing cosmic Brownie cereal. It was weird because they had the box for Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies cereal but they didn't have any official box art for the cosmic brownies cereal and the stuff really kinda looked like the cocoa puffs Brownie crunch that rerelease not too long ago. So it's very uncertain. The legitimacy of this cosmic Brownie cereal because after the news officially dropped I reached OCTA Kellogg's my contact there and ask them about this and all I could tell me in the Vegas. Possible terms was that a cosmic brownies Syria was not releasing at this time. The seems like a tacit confirmation that cosmic Brownie Syria was at least considered whether it will actually be released or not or if it was scrapped entirely remains uncertain but the point remains that we're entering a brave new world of snack cakes, cereals and I'm all here for it.

Steve Bannon's arrest has tertiary ties to video games

"Former thirty eight studios CEO curt. Schilling was involved in the build a wall pack. The thing that just led to former Donald Trump advisor, steve bannon getting arrested. This is just a weird tangentially related to video games news story that is just so strange and it also kind of goes to show that if curt schilling is involved in a company, that's probably a good reason to not invest any money. So for the. Non Video game side of the story former President Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon was arrested this morning for issues related to a crowdfunding campaign. He was involved with that was raising money to build a wall between Mexico and the United States of America. The campaign raised over twenty, five million dollars, but apparently, the money was being used for personal gain Audrey Strauss the acting us attorney for the southern district of New York said. The. Defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors capitalizing on their interest and funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars under the false pretense that all of the money would be spent on construction while repeatedly assuring donors that Brian Cole fade the founder and public face of the We build the wall would not be paid a cent. The defendants secretly schemed to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to coalfields, which he used to fund his lavish lifestyle. That quote comes from NPR story. Linked in the show notes. So that's the main part of it but the tangentially related video games side of it comes from Edward Isaac Dove Air From the Atlantic on twitter who wrote Crisco Bosch is the General Counsel of the build the wall pack that Steve Bannon was just arrested for being involved in as chairman. The advisory board includes Eric Prince Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo Sheriff David Clarke and former pitcher curt schilling curt schilling is predominantly known for being a pitcher in the MLB. I will always know him as the CEO of thirty eight studios, the developer that created kingdoms of Amour with investment funds from the State of Rhode Island, which he neglected to return when required, which ultimately doomed the developer and the kingdoms of Ahmir franchise though then might be making comeback soon, there's a, there's a remake rerelease on the way. It's really gross that money was being raised to build a wall which as near as I can tell is thankfully nowhere near fruition and it's totally unsurprising that it is all collapsing under the weight of its founders deciding to just try and keep the money for themselves. Rock steady responds to recent sexual harassment issues with kind of a weird public statement. The publication. The Guardian recently released a story about sexual harassment issues at develop a rock steady games and how the company had not taken proper action when women within the studio went directly to its leadership wants the article was published rock steady apparently began to take action internally and called a studio meeting but the developer also released kind of strange statement on twitter. Here's the statement in full working on. Our response to the recent news, we received the following unsolicited letter eight out of ten people that sign of the original two, thousand, eighteen letter or still rock steady. The following unedited letter below is from seven of those people. Please note that all involved do not wish to have their identity disclosed publicly under any circumstances. This statement is sent in representation of the current women at rock steady studios who were. Working at the studio in two thousand eighteen who signed a letter regarding issues being faced by female employees. The statement has in no way been asked for or influenced by management or anyone else. This is solely the voices of those involved who are still currently employed by rock steady. We all feel the need to respond to this and to reflect what actually happened at the time and how this has been. Handled since recently, an article was posted in the Guardian regarding this letter, which was sent to the studio heads and HR in two thousand eighteen in addition to multiple other accusations. In this article, we feel that the anonymous source or sources attempted to speak on behalf of all women at rock steady, and we do not feel that this article is a fair representation of us the events at the time or. Since the letter was received when the letter was received by the studio immediate action was taken, which resulted in a series of meetings with the women of the studio to allow us a safe space to talk about any issues we were facing figuring out strategies to resolve these issues and what the studio could do going forward continued efforts have been made to ensure that we have a voice within our. Working, within the studio ranging from involvement, specifically with how our characters are represented to workshops to help build self-confidence within male dominated industries. Throughout all of this, a firm promise has been made that there always an open forum for us to speak out net issues would be addressed with seriousness none of the current female employees at the studio who are involved with the letter were contacted about this letter being released. To the media until we were informed by the studio at the time of working through the original letter with the studio, we were assured that this would be kept as a private matter. As this was what we had collectively requested we feel that our privacy and witches have been disregarded and a private matter has been made public. This has left us feeling that we have been violated by the source or. Sources as it was kept private for personal reasons, twelve involve not to industry secrecy. We would like to conclude this statement reaffirming the importance of any minority within the games industry to speak up and four studios to take seriously as rock steady did at the time and continues to do any allegations being brought forward to work towards creating safe environments for us to work in so that we can make games.

Nintendo Direct Mini: What We Learned from the Partner Showcase

"Nintendo surprised everyone late last night by announcing that it would be airing a Nintendo direct mini partner showcase early this morning. The surprise announcement last night read on July twentieth. We'll debut the first Nintendo direct mini partner showcase a series focused on titles from our development and publishing partners will share a few updates on a small group of previously announced Hashtag. Nintendo switch games? The quick window between the announcement of the thing and airing the thing. And specifically pointing out that it would only cover previously announced games lowered my expectations to the floor, but there were at least a few surprises. Here's what they shared. I the direct started with a cove in nineteen disclaimer, saying basically that the future is uncertain, and everything could change including release dates, but then they made their first announcement with was planned DLC for a game whose full title is cadence of high rule crypt of the neck, dancer, featuring the legend of Zelda. The game released last year, but it will get three new DLC packs, which will release through October. The first pack adds new characters to the game. IMPA shadow link and Shadow Zelda and then characters named Aria and Frederick who I believe our original characters. I fancy myself a bit of his elda. Didn't immediately recognize those characters D second pack will add thirty nine new songs to the game. The third pack, which seems the most substantial Ed's a whole new story with new songs where you can play as skulk the tags from yours mask who can change masks to adopt new abilities? The character pack is available today in the other packs will be available later with all the pacts eventually coming out by October, and then the game will also receive a physical release with all the DLC bundled in one box on October twenty third. I played and beat cadence of Jairo Crypto the neck road answer featuring diligent of Zelda, but ultimately liked the soundtrack a lot more than I liked the actual game. I would go so far as to say I love the soundtrack, so I am excited to hear all the new songs. I don't know that I am really eager to actually play the game more, but I am also such as Zelda soccer that I probably will. The next two announcements weren't really announcements so much. The Game Rogue Company was shown which looks like a pretty. Pretty unspectacular third person online shooter with cyberpunk sort of theme. It didn't look bad by any means that it just didn't do much to stand out. Same goes for the next game. WWE TO CAPE battlegrounds. There was some new gameplay and we saw some wrestlers who were likely well compensated to show how excited they were about the game. They were playing, but there wasn't much. That had not already been shared the mini, direct and strong, though with two big atlas announcements. Shimagami ten say one, which was basically Shimagami Tennessee, three and Japan. Is Getting remastered for release on switch next year. I would love some help here in the form of a correction because I find the Shin Montgomery ten say series to be pretty confusing as it has all devolved into different spinoffs like persona, which itself has all kinds of spin offs. I was always under the impression that knocked turn was spinoff as well, but I guess it is part of the mainline series, and this rerelease will have the number three in the title, even though it did not have a three in its North American title when it originally released in two thousand four. In any case you know where it belongs in the Shin, Mugabe cannon really isn't. All that portent the important thing is that it is generally considered to be one of the best, if not the Best Shimagami, ten say game that isn't called Persona and it's actually the entry that I play the most. It has some MON elements to it with demon collecting, and when it originally released, it featured Dante from devil may cry. Suggest character which is a cool idea. I'm curious if the rerelease will keep that Dante Cameo. It also just has a great art style to it and I'm happy to see it getting a visual overhaul for the switch release. It is coming spring twenty twenty one after that a trailer was shown for Shimagami ten. Say Five a game we have known about since two thousand seventeen, but this was the first in some time. The trailer didn't reveal much. A teenager looks like they're given some kind of demonic choice and I don't know that they make the right one. The game is coming in twenty twenty one, but the trailer didn't anymore specifics than that. I had low expectations going into this thing and they were mostly met, but I was surprised by the nocturnal announcement. That was very cool. The Internet seems generally annoyed that Nintendo has not made any big summer announcements and that with paper Mario Animal Crossing having been released. It really doesn't seem like they have any big games for the rest of the year. which is true, but the weird thing is. Is I. Don't know that it really matters to Nintendo. Twenty twenty can kind of just be a low key year for them. Because animal crossing was just that big of a hit. It feels like they are in no rush to push anything out. Because everyone is just going to keep buying animal crossing anyway, they can barely keep up with demand for the switch consoles as it is. Now with all that being said though I think Nintendo kind sees the cancellation of e three as a blessing in terms of how it likes to announce Games paper Mario was announced and released within a few months. And I think that's how Nintendo would always prefer to do it. Keep the window between announcement and release small, but e three kind of forces them to make these big proclamation announcements all piled up on top of each other and share things many months before the popular November release window with E. Three out of the way though I think Nintendo is taking advantage and will make individual announcements for games. Just shortly before they actually release. There is that rumored Super Mario collection that will gather a bunch of three D Mario Games maybe nintendo will detail it in a dedicated direct, and then release it within a month, or so closer to November, and maybe in the unlikely scenario that breath of the wild to is coming this year. They will do the same thing. have a focused dedicated direct for the game, and then it will come out shortly after or maybe as I alluded to earlier, Nintendo will just look at animal crossings absurd sales. Do a round of socially distant high fives, and just push everything in originally had planned for twenty twenty into twenty twenty one.

Star Wars Squadron Revealed

"So I up. As I mentioned the top of the show, the gorilla collective was live all weekend long. They had multiple streams. Dev Interviews. Did you guys catch any of the press conference stuff? That was happening this weekend and blame. Mostly. Just been looking at the headlines like checking out the games that have been interesting me but I did see the one that stuck out to me. The most assists shot coming back. I guess in HD rerelease. This has been in the works for quite some time. It went dark for a while. They put the project on hiatus, and we didn't hear from it and then boom. It's back now I. Think Two thousand eighteen is when they put the project on hiatus, and it's crazy to think that. Maybe we're just like old gamers, but Shaq is something that a lot of people don't even know what it is or that it existed in the first place. It's like the predecessor of bioshock. Right I mean that's. A huge game, but are they doing like a totally different engine, or is it Kinda like halo thing where you can click a button up rises. I'm curious. How indepth. How much of a Redo this thing is! We work in video games and should know the answer. Why you're putting us on the spot like that, so sorry but. I will go to the Google machine if I could find out. The details about everything that is coming in the system shock. Really well. She which on Google Machine I have a few highlights of my own that I'd like to talk about. Yeah, go number and I don't know what press conferences these came during because there was like a million this weekend. That's the lights and exaggeration. There was the PC gaming show the future gaming show, and then the girl collective. Anyway, the first one is that percent persona for bolden is coming to steam, which I think is very very exciting. Are there any percents fans on this stream right now blamed Chris or you know I don't play per now you don't. That's been to the locations in Japan. Apparently, you know that's marvelous. That's. That's cool. New apparently. That's actually not true because I've actually played percentage trying to throw you bone, but it was oh long. Apologies this is really exciting. Because this was a vita exclusive, and this is actually my first person and a game, so if you have not played it, it's currently twenty dollars on seem I wish it would come to console. That'd be amazing, but it's really good if you like personify of absolutely checkout percent of four. let's see, and then there was a game called gory. That was announced, and it's described as the following come hang out with frank. The razor-sharp Hover Board in chip, the depressed modular AI, that's constantly complaining as wipe out hordes of cuddling and horrible toys, all plan is gory, the most adorable and bad cat in the world, so you play us this like Realistic Orange Tabby and you're on a spaceship, and then you're on a hover board, and then you're taking out stuff. UNICORNS somehow have blood in them I. don't understand it. I don't understand it, but I'm definitely intrigued by spelled G. O. R., I. And Andrea immediately thought of you because it's a cat. I appreciate that being the defacto Cat Lady of what's good Games, but I sound a little bit too off the wall for me I. Don't know how I feel about I. Think you'll like. Check it out. It sounds like conquers bad for day or something like that, or it's like a cute thing that's also really violent and gruesome and yeah. Yeah, I don't look at it. I think there's neon lights and rock music. It's kind of. Really, good personally and then my true love to Vinita. Divinity original sin. You got some New Deal C. which is incredibly exciting. They got new. Armor new quest line in new boss fight, and there's also a prequel comic cannon coming in as well to the Larry in store so cool for me. No one else fucking cares, but that's okay. I don't think no one else care and I just think that you are the defacto Larry and fan girl, and that's okay most wrong with that. So I'm seeing that system shock. It looks like they're using unreal engine for and I figure. It was a kickstarter, but then I don't know. It's going be. Wasn't the Alpha Demo is now. Apparently you can play it currently. On steam or Gog? Bill, but looking very promising says Gamer. Yeah they crowd funded for one point. Three million dollars, promising to capture the original horror ROMP freshening it up. It's been a meandering journey though with night dive pausing development in two thousand, eighteen like I mentioned, and then starting over. Aches yeah, that's starting, not Greece. That's what it says. They just decided. We're going to start from scratch why not. Apparently Oh, yeah, here's a story back from March of two thousand eighteen systems shock remakes, direction expects released probably Q. One of twenty twenty ll. Didn't happen. But. Yeah, if you're in to system shock and you've been following that story, you can check out the Alpha. Demo

"Of allure is coming to xbox one and probably other current gen platforms as well. Kingdoms of Amolo reckoning is a well liked action RPG that released in two thousand twelve, and it was supposed to represent the start of what was meant to be a larger franchise that never got its chance at sequels, despite making a strong first impression. Thanks to a pretty insane behind the scenes story, it seemed unlikely that it would ever get a sequel or a rerelease, but this morning a listing for a game called Kingdoms of Amour, re reckoning appeared on the xbox store for xbox one complete with fancy new box art and an August eighteenth release

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World video game re-release teased

"Scott Pilgrim video game might be making a return. There was a lot of Scott Pilgrim. Talk on the Internet yesterday as the director of the film Edgar Right and the cast watched the movie insured commentary on twitter which is Great. Because it's a great movie and Edgar. Wright is one of my favorite directors but in terms of video games. There was another little interesting tease Bryan. Lee o'malley the author of the Scott Pilgrim Comic Book that inspired the film tweeted. Bring back the Scott Pilgrim game. Hashtag bring back the Scott Pilgrim game. Hashtag watch with the academy. Which is a necessary tweet to share because the game was delisted a few years after its release it was delisted in two thousand fourteen. As far as I know it's not a game that can be purchased on any of its original platforms and it has never been entirely clear why the game was delisted but it likely had something to do with rights debates as you know it is a licensed game after all in response to o'malley's tweet the official UBISOFT. Twitter account responded with a thoughtful face emoji which many are reading into Ubisoft considering bringing the game back online the game was developed and published by Ubisoft. So if anyone was gonna be able to bring it back it would be them. I actually reviewed that game back in my pre game informer freelance days and here is my potentially controversial opinion. The game soundtrack which was created by chip tune ban on Gucci is much better than the actual game. The music is absolutely fantastic. The Art Style and animation is good but the game itself I just. I didn't think it was Super Fun to play. Now that being said I would still very much like to see that game comeback to life. It's always a bummer. When any game gets delisted in anything we can do to help elevate. Scott Pilgrim is a thing that comics are in. The movie is fantastic. So more Scott Pilgrim in the world is a good

Mike Schultz, CSCS, CPT - Head Coach and Founder of Highland Training

"We were talking a little bit before we started recording about the difficulty of actually making your living is an endurance coach. And I know there's a lot of people with personal training with coaching etc. It's very easy to throw out the co- the term coach and sale. I'm kosher I do this or I do that. But the people are actually saying. I need to bring the money I need to be qualified are few and far between so when you see somebody. You're at a bar your coffee shop or something and they say what do you do? What's kind of your thirty second elevator? Spiel Mike Schultz in I do. I coach endurance athletes. I I mainly coach cyclists and the majority of them are mountain bikers. You know we spoke about this earlier but the trend is a lot of people are starting to move onto dirt and love racing their bikes Certified specialists in the strength and conditioning field with the And have you ever certifications and been coaching for eleven years Fulltime been coaching racing. Basically learning the sport in the Science for over twenty years now. So you know that's what I do do full-time into work hard for every single person that comes through my door. I'm always curious and I know there's a fair number of people who will be listening this to say this is why endurance sports and I know from reading your bio and looking at your webpage for highland training before you coached you actually worry participant in these things. So it's not somebody who's just standing there with a whistle saying you do it because this is what the book says you've actually experienced. How did you get into doing endurance? And Ultra endurance events. Do did you do that in high school runner in high school? No I played hockey house actually a goalie in high school and I loved playing hockey but post high school hockey league's went on for so many years and Then amended Meyer early twenties. I started discovering bikes. Actually I think it started covering bikes when I was like eighteen nineteen Running around the neighborhood and Just loved riding in started Seeing these guys going fast in SPANDEX. And Hey these guys look fast and I was kind of interested in that. You didn't really get heavily into racing until I was about twenty five twenty six. It's kind of a life. Change happens and quit the job and moved to the mountain road. My bike every day and worked part time and from there is where I really fell in love with going long and seeing the views the scenery. And you know on early morning misty mornings in your climbing mountains and there's no one around it's just I dunno it's addicting so that's how I got into question I always have to ask because I have to get it out of the way whenever I interview or talk to somebody. Who's a cyclist? You've probably heard the equation. The perfect number of bikes is plus one. Where N is the current number. You have so. How many bikes you currently have. Well I have a few bikes and I have a few bikes. That are not even operational right now. I am not the Tech Guy. I just like to feel fast and fiddle bike. Always have I always will I get a bike and I ride in till it doesn't work and then I get another bike and so I have just the basic necessities. I have a really great mom by specialized jumper and I have a doable road bike. an elise actually lease. I think won the world championship this past year. So I'm on aluminum bike. I'm still proud of it So yeah I just keep those you bikes. That gets me through the year wintertime indoors outdoors around as much as I can keep it pretty simple so and you mentioned how you got into cycling by seeing people wearing SPANDEX and often when you see people spinning by on the road you bite the the road cycling thing and you get into criteriums and maybe if you have the opportunity some stage races but you didn't go in that direction. You went in the direction of off road. Why did you do that? Or what attracted you to the off road when you first saw the people on-road well I. When I moved to the Somerset seven springs area. There was tons of trails and for whatever reason all my friends at the Time Road Mountain Bikes and actually I think I remember my first mountain bike ride. It was a night rod and it was late at night after a night of celebrating and it was short and it scared the Bejesus out of me but it helped me on night writing. That's how you know just mountain biking in general. I think seeing my friends do it. And no one was really into a ton of road routing back then I was like in the mid nineties There were road rides. That were happened. Races were happened but they're away. More Mountain bike races happening. And then you started winning about West Virginia and what's Your Genomic series and I started participating in those races back in the early two thousands. And then it's like okay. There's this whole world here of mountain bike races and trails and this is fun so that's where the addiction to mountain biking came in. And I know I've talked to a few people who exercise outdoors and end up in the mountains around the trails and there really is something about not having to worry about cars and people buzzing you as you mentioned the misty mornings. Sometimes you're focusing on the training. Sometimes you're just focusing and going while look what. I just saw right exactly. I don't know it's just a voice. So yeah anytime I'm in the woods and through the trees and you're pedaling that ribbon of single track and you're flowing with it and with today's bikes. It's way more fun because you remember twenty years ago Bikes Way Different. V brakes and none of this disc brakes hydraulic stuff. Going on so yeah only world and I used to say I don't need disc brakes hydraulic brakes. I don't need front suspension. I still have a hard tail but hydraulic brakes in front suspension or now a requirement for me. Yeah absolutely. I don't need a hotel. I've never ridden a full suspension. And Yeah I've just like the simplicity of maintenance wise. That's why I only have a few bikes because I don't have time to spend a lot of time in meetings which all my friends knew so along with me you can add to. I told the Lane during our interview with her that I blamed her for spending a lot of money and on bikes because she and her ex husband started Derek. I'm curious though you drop down the rabbit hole of doing mountain bike races. Doing twenty four hour races just being in the mountains. What was it that made you kind of turn the corner and say okay. I'm going to start coaching too. Because that's a big step upwards or changed just saying I'm going to get on my bike and ride a lot. Well it all started when I put a Hari Monitor on in the early two thousands and I became fascinated with heart rates and then over the next six seven years. I started learning that there were a lot of people out there but didn't know how to interpret a heart rates how to use them and they weren't using the right information so that drove me into wanting to learn more on the street side of things and I think it was like two thousand six I got sort of a personal trainer author the sea. And at the same time I met a friend and he was like you need to get your because that can teach you a lot of science and so then the next few years I I pursued that and it wasn't until after that I then said okay. Now what am I gonNa do with this because you know you can maybe go into Footba? Can maybe go into hockey. I love hockey but I was like. I'm so in the cycling. I should stick with cycling and then when I started seeing the cycling community I was like Wow I'm strength. Conditioning coach and I can be a cycling coach. And then that's when all the heart rate in the power info and as we talked earlier iphones and technology and then it just blew up and then all of a sudden now have all this data studying came fascinating and that's pretty much my quick

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

"My name is daniel bearer this week no ten android ten and and await no. Let's necessarily joining me for this. Episode is in nick fresh off a crazy week kidding of writing. I think you must have written more words than hemingway hidden right. I don't think he he didn't write many words this week so i definitely have this week true. You are more than hemingway in twenty <hes> in welcome back our wagner. How how was your time away from from the pod away from us. It was nice spent i wanted. I've been wanting to come back happy to be back. Good good to have you back <hes> so we'll jump right in our note ten review is live. Go there right now uh but we did it a little different this week or this year because andrew you and hey otto. Who was you know. He was on the previous podcast right after the announcements u._2. Took the phones and you sort of ran with them. Literally you use the crap out of them. Wrote your experiences experiences in sort of a journal diary format just to give the twenty four hour impression seventy two hour impressions. Ask that change up until today. Which is when you publish your review what six seven days after you got the phone yeah and it was a really good process from from kind of letting people in to where we were at along the way but also helped us hyodo and i both mentioned this morning that it helped the us form our own ideas because you know getting them out there and forcing yourself to write. I think each of our updates was like seven even eight hundred words and so forcing ourselves to go through that process and knowing that we have to we we didn't have to you have a fully formed opinion yet. We set up front that like hey this is just how we're feeling a brain dump and get those ideas out actually really helped me and high auto both both get to actual conclusions in the end a lot easier by kind of just throwing things out there and saying oh well that that okay let's reflect on that later or let's see how this idea forms over the next couple of days and i think it really informed my final conclusions in my the review today. So how did i mean. Obviously your your your perception of product. Any product is going to change over the course of a few days but you know given that you have reviewed every note since the note four. How does this one on. It's a better phone. Obviously it's a more complete thought. It's more mature in every way but this feels like the note lying is a little little bit more muted. It's a little bit less anticipated than in previous years. How do you square that circle. How do you how do you figure or is it just that phones in general are less interesting or is this phone in particular less interesting. I've definitely heard a lot of that opinion. Nyan from from people as i put my thoughts on the ten out there that you know they rightly point out that the whole smartphone industry is kind kind of leveling off a little bit or stagnating or not improving that quickly and the way that the note has evolved in the last four generations or so is kind of just following that trend like the problem is that samsung is in full control of how how it chooses to differentiate the note line from the s line and they just haven't really been differentiated at all at this point. I mean at the end of my review to just spoil it for everybody. I point out that you know the word. Note just signifies that it has a stylus now it. It doesn't actually signify that this is the absolute pinnacle of what samsung can do and it's different in all these different ways in. It's dramatically better than the previous one because it's just not true anymore. The galaxy note ten plus is excellent just top to bottom but it's excellent in and all of the same ways that the galaxy s. ten plus is and then also as a stylus and if you were to rerelease a galaxy s. ten plus today it would just have all the same specs that the note ten plus does because it's six months newer and there are higher end specs and we're going to see a galaxy s. eleven. That's gonna come out in another six months and it's just going to be the same or better than the note ten plus so they're they're kind of and just on this same pathway and i understand that phones can't just get dramatically better every single time but it seems like there's more or of a stagnation here than would then. I'd like to see for something like a note that historically pushed the envelope more so. Are you had the phone for less time than andrew or i but you you got the blue version so i think you you win after twenty four hours. What are what's your impression impression of this massive of phone well. I've i've had it for about twenty twenty four. I've had for about twenty four hours at this point. I've i've barely set anything on it so far. I haven't even logged into read it on this phone yet. I will say yeah. Blue is awesome. Nazarov is wanting to trade me for the ara. Glow 'cause not really wants the blue to vader but <hes> it's it's fun to use. This is the first note that i've ever owned this. I note that i've ever used in any like like real capacity outside playing with one at a a big injury barbecuer playing with one store so it's it's big and it's beautiful and it's is quick and i'm looking forward to using it mooring getting used to this and then going back to pixel three or a galaxy s. ten and going. Oh my god this field small all but for now it's just it's huge and i'm looking forward to using it. I i haven't even i haven't opened the camera yet and i'm looking forward to taking the stone to the park and just going one wild with the camera okay so every new samsung phone has night mode now and you know for me. That's the biggest difference i think after coming from a a p thirty pro or pixel three and i have to say that a a previous updates google camera moved the move nights site into the main camera app app instead of it being in the overflow menu and that's been a big change and the first thing i do now with the new phone is i put night mode right next to photo mode on a samsung phone. Wally phone doesn't matter what it is. It has a motive goes goes right next to my main mode because they use that way more than portrait or video or anything else <music> andrew. You had a chance to take this to a lot of different places. You've taken hundreds of photos with the no ten. Is it a good camera camera. Does it stack up to the pixel three the p thirty pro in all lighting conditions. Where does it excel whereas the ball down so so it's excels in all the ways of course that previous simpson cameras have in that in daylight in even in kind of mixed lighting like like your typical kind of sunset photo or you know harsh lighting just coming from one side anytime. There's actually some sort of light available. The cameras really really good and samsung's dynamic range really stands out the color standout. It's incredibly sharp and one one of samsung's biggest features in the camera for me is it's consistency just from shot to shot you press the button. The camera is really fast at captures it does its thing and handed. Does it pretty much the same every single time. The only place that's disappointing is the same place that samsung's seng's always been disappointing. Those really dark shots where you do the exact same daniel i just put the night mode or whatever it's called right next to the regular camera mode auto mode and it anytime where you feel like you need to switch to that mode you've already lost with the note ten plus because it's just not as good as what watson does what google does and honestly even what sony is doing with the exterior area one which is hilarious because we've always paying sony's cameras for being bad in low light and anytime that there's a little bit to work with breath you get a pretty good photo but when you have that kind of late night scene where there's really nothing to go off of in terms of light or you're you're in a fully artificial light environment. You're talking about like a bar late at night or a restaurant with just candles on the tables or something like that. It's it's almost not worth taking a shot because it's going to be so grainy and messy whether us night motor not that it's it's just frustrating <hes> it's it's just extra frustrating. If you're somebody like us that have used the latest cameras like a pixel three cetera but it's frustrating the same way that it's the same performance as like debris jet last three generations of samsung cameras. I don't know about you but i can look at google photos and i can just scroll through the thumbnails and even though i'm sure both of you are the same you take photos with many different phones and then applaud them to google photos and they just all get dispersed and they're all just thrown together. Yeah i can tell even from a thumbnail. What phone took a particular photo based on the color. I q based on a bunch of different factors and and we're getting to the point now where every phone takes pretty good photos but there's just something off. I think about out samsung in anything but perfect lighting condition and and i'm wondering if you can articulate what that is because i i haven't been able to to really figure that out other than to say it's. It just doesn't look. It doesn't look quite right to my eyes. Yeah i can and do the same thing scrolling through google photos which is kind of sad i realize in not everybody has those kind of side by side thoughts but because i was i was gonna say yeah unless i'm specifically thinking something i i take photos with one camera unless i accidently took him with the wrong camera. If i'm carrying two on me but i i don't do a whole lot got a side by side and most days in the park. We not side by side in terms of taking the same exact photo back to back but you can kind of tell there. There's something to a samsung camera that in the daylight the things that make it so great in terms of its dynamic range in its colors. Just don't seem to translate well to representing a scene properly in weaker lighting. Yeah i mean it's it's not so much that it's rainy or that. It's i guess it's it's just there's there's some particular nuance that simpson cameras have have that where they used to be an advan. It used to be an advantage and now it is no longer an advantage now. It's it's a disadvantaged but like in terms of daylight photos you know i'm looking through the the photos that i've taken with the no ten plus right now and they're pretty much perfect mix there. There's really nothing to complain about so from that perspective. I'm really happy with this camera but putting <music> equivalent photos and i'm going to be doing this experiment later this week where i i'm going to take photos with the pixel three a the p thirty pro and the no ten plus and i'm going to try to figure out what exactly it is. I i prefer about those other two cameras well and of course the pixel three in particular is is one of these cameras. That's a love hate relationship because the camera app can be slow and fiddly and it can some concern times produce photos that are a little kind of blander to neutral. It's not like that's perfect but the low low light capabilities of that camera are so good. They're so way beyond everything else. The you're kind of willing to give up some of the other you know parts. It's and i feel like i just wish that samsung would do a little bit of the same. It's really good at so many things in the camera department that i you know i it's just frustrating because i know samsung didn't have to do anything it just had to pick up the s. tens cameras in but the more over here it didn't have to do and nor did it say that it did add anything in terms of the daylight capabilities of the sensors or anything so it's like well what did you do. You should have spent spent some time improving the clear weakness of the camera there. That's kind of the the frustrating part and it's tough to put your finger on it because because it's kind of a nikki thing because like you said in so many cases the photos are kind of perfect that you feel bad pointing out out in saying that the low light performance isn't very good but it just isn't. It's just known it's just you just know it when you see it and it's tough in a review scenario dario as well because i put low light photos in my note ten review and they're good because i picked the four good photos that i took in in over a week of taking low light photos. I picked the whatever it is three four and a couple from ohio that were really good so i took hundreds of photos to get four good ones and that's that's the problem right now. We talked a lot about the phone specs and the previous podcast. We're not gonna. We're not going to rehash that but i just wanted to talk about this fourth depth camera because i've been i'm playing a little bit with it and there's this three d. scanning feature. That's really hard to find. I didn't i had to search for it and the reason it's hard to

Exactly What Happens When Take A Break From Podcasting

"Get to part two of this episode. What happens when you take you? And we're going to say a couple of months off hasn't quite been that long, but about eight weeks what happens when you take that time off since that time if you look at my numbers now numbers being download whatever we're gonna call him fifty percent drop in download numbers. Let me give you my thoughts on why. Most people who listen to this podcast, maybe your podcast, and maybe you when it comes to this podcast. I've got regular listeners and without new content is not anything to download and because of that they don't download anything. If already downloaded it. They've already heard what I've got. They're not going to download it. Again. You might have heard the phrase publisher parish. They tell that to college professors people looking to make a name for themselves. It applies to you as a podcast or you need to continuously put out new episodes. Maybe you can boost numbers not necessarily listener satisfaction, not necessarily listeners rereleasing, podcast episodes. I don't know. I don't like to do that. I only like to release new content. My suggestion for you. If you want to keep your number's up probably don't take too long off. Maybe a couple of weeks a week. I don't know not eight weeks, you go way too long people forget about you you like those bands that I was talking about those bands. We look them up. All those guys are still around. That's going to be you guys. Still doing a podcast. Yeah. Yeah. But only when he feels like it don't be that guy you release content. Pretty frequently. Here's another reason why your numbers will probably drop you stop putting out consistent episodes. If somebody does find a new podcast, and that podcast happens to be yours. And he sees that it's been a few weeks since the latest episode. What's he gonna thank he's likely not to bother? What happens with a house that has been on the market for a while? People think something's wrong with it. People think there's a reason that it hasn't sold even realtors stop showing that house because they may be shown it it hasn't sold. They know other realtors have shown it it hasn't sold. You're in the same situation where you don't put out new episodes. If somebody finds a podcast and the last episode was eight weeks ago a year ago three years ago, it's it's not up to date. It's not going to be worth me listening to and if I do like it I'm going to be disappointed because they're not putting out new stuff. We feel the same way about software consider that more importantly, consider this. If you want to be known as a podcast or you need to podcast don't be that guy. The singer who doesn't sing songs the song writer who doesn't write songs the author who doesn't write books. He's in the coffee shop talking about how he's going to write a book, but he's not writing books musicians who don't play gigs. Don't call yourself a podcast if you're not gonna podcast.
